The Question.
The Young Men
Those elements of controversy which
separate Liberul and Conservative in
Federal poUtics are not so perceptible
iu provincial affairs. The local electors therefore tind it easier to free
themselves from purty bius when issues ore submit led  to   their judgmeut.
In the uci'iisiuu of the present up-
peul to the people ibe argument fur
iuipnrtial action seems lo occur witb
peculiar emphasis. Nu e,„„| cause is
i-i i'n suggested to justify opposition
io the reinni of Mr. Tnj-lor in parliament or iu make it de-irablc lhal the
iidmiuistriitioti of which ht- i- u member, should be overthrown. Aud further there is a decisive waruing, in
tin- disastrous political turmoil of the
early past, against tillowiug any latitude In ti waverine or utii-ei-tuin en-
doi-satioii of i he government which
might joapoi'dizo their stable position
iu the country. Every encouragement
is afforded iu the situation us it exists today for the people to form their
opinions irrespective of puny polities.
Tho advantages of continuing n government iu power until good cause
is discoverable for its overthrow has
been amply demonstrated in Canada.
Even in provinces of comparatively
matured development, in which publie
works are concerns, not of croation,
but of repair; when' the ulTairs of government ure chiefly affairs of departmental routine, there is still room for
lhu advantage of stability of administration to show itself. How much
more is such the case in a mighty
province like liritish Columbia, where
works of development, (rreHt and creditable ns they already are, have scarcely crossed the threshold of the wilder-
Even if there were not oUOUgh iu
(he. record of ihe governmenl nnd the
sense of security which has found lodging in the administration, to earn
the support . of the peoplo, there is
thnt in the issues of the present campaign which should be suthcienl for
the purpose. Out of the shadows of

lu 1B99 an association was formed
ui Rovelstoke, with the laudable object of encouraging the young men to
take au interest iu political affairs. It
was known as the Young Men's Conservative Association uud il has siiii-e
justified its existence by getting the
young men iu line ou various occasions when the call of un election iva-
sounded in the constituency,
Ou Friday last u reunion uf tlii- us-

The meeting which inaugurated tho
campaign among the ranks of the
young men who are supporting the
progressive policy, was largely attended, uud afler" the business of organization was completed an entertainment of vocal and instrumental numbers was provided, occasion also beiug
found for the delivery of some excellent speeches, Mr. E. M. Clay being
the chief orator of tbe evening. Addresses were also heard from Mr.
Sturdy, president of the Young Men's
Association, W. W. Foster, president
of the senior association and the Ilon.

received an ovatiou and it was quite
apparent that the young men are enlisted enthusiastically in his support.

Government Sale of
Acreage at Point Grey
At Vancouver, B. C.  Nov. 15th
Point Grey is Vancouver's future "West End''
and this is the chance to buy from a responsible party
(the Provincial Government) and on Easy Terms, a site
for your future home.
The Acreage will bring at auction, I expect
Three Thousand to Five Thousand |)cr acre for very
choice locations, the sizes til blocks can be seen by
referring to the Governmenl Maps, which 1 will send
to those desiring them. The priee may seem high,
but when one studies the location and remembers that
Five Thousand Dollars will not buy a sixty-six loot
lot in Vancouver's present "West Knd," it is obvious
that by purchasing now from the Government, on easy
terms, and at a low rale of interesl, the investment is
of  the   very   best.      Remember   the   terms—Quarter
Cash, and the balance in three equal payments in one,
two and three years, with interest on unpaid balance
at the rate of six per cent.
I shall be pleased to purchase for those who
cannot attend the sale, charging as my commission,
Five per cenl on purchase price. Remember the time
is short and any who wish to get in on the ground
lloor must write me at once, arranging the amount of
acreage they require and the mode of remitting purchase price. Sou have three years in which to pay,
and by that time Point Grey will be the desirable place
to live.

larger and   better   than   ever   belore,

does it give back to the user any

Consider the following Facts carefully, you can verify every one of them from Government Statistics
In  1U08 Minnesota had 6!I0 Convicts
In L908 Kaunas had 818 Convicts—128 mure than Minnesota
In 190S Minnesota had I0U Murderer*
In   1U08 Thirty-three  (38)   Cases  of   Rape  were  reported  in  Minnesota
Ln 1908 Kansas had 172 Murderers—00 more Murderers than Minnesota
In 11)08 One Hundred and Fifteen (115) Convicts

In 1908 Eighty (80) Cases of Rape were reported in Kansas
'17 more Cases of Rape than Minnesota.
In 1908 One Hundred and Eighty-five U85) convicts were  natives  of   Kansas
Kansas produced 70 more Convicts than Minnesota.
Minnesota has a much larger population than Kansas, and accordingly should have more paupers and criminals than Kansas; but Kansas takes
the palm for paupers and criminals, the direct cause of which is traceable to Prohibition and Local Option.
The Obstacle to Real Reform
Tho  Reverend  William  A.  Wasson,
Clergyman of tho Episcopal Church
of Brooklyn, N.   ^ ,
During the dccado immediately preceding tli-' Civil War, n grout "Temperance Wave" swept over thu couutry
Within it period of five yours eight
states: vi/..: tho six New England
States, Michigau und Nobrusku, adopted Prohibition. New York, Indiana
und Wisconsin; ulso enacted prohibitory laws, which however, never went
into effect, having been declared unconstitutional by tlie highest courts in
these states.
Now, again, after n lapse of fifty
years, the country is witnessing another "temperance wave," which has already risen higher Than its predecessor
Not is tho end yet in sight. While
in some sections of tho country tho
"wave" lui- spent itself aud appears
to bo receding) iu other sections it \<
increasing in volume and force. Thei
are, at present, eight stntes in whi#h
statutory Prohibition obtain* four
in the south, three in the west and
one in New England. Inder the Local
Option system, a number of ol hor
states are being prohibit ionized on the
instalment plan. Not long ago it was
estimated that bu loons were bping
closed at the rate of thirty It day-
nearly  11,000 a year.
I'he Prohibition leaders boasl that
while ten year-; ago there were onl>
-i\ million people living iu "dry" territory, thuru were now thirty-eight
million, If Prohibition and Temperance be the sinii' thing, wc are cor-
taiuU   uinkiug prodigious  strides     to-
wards   the  "Milium ."   But   SOBER-
MINDED PEOPLE have no faith in
of Prohibitionists, Eifiy years ago,
the lenders of lho erusudc thought
the) saw the dawn of the perfect duy,
when thero would uot bo a dram shop
nm a drunkard in all iho land. They
were confident that ilu- problem of
iutemperunce, which had perplexed and
baffled mankind tui thousands of years
wa- as good as solved. The great dra
gou was aboul to lie slain and his
dead carcass hurled into the bottom
less pit. Bui it turned om to lie alia
drenin. The dragon was not slain; he
wus uol oven seriously wounded. tf
he disappeared at all, il was only tn
betake himself to the cellar to await
the passing storm. In the course of a
few year-, the "Temperuneo Wave"
passed away, and the frenzy and hysteria thai caused il, nnd was caused
by it, died oui
The crusade not only did not solve
the liquor problem, bui it complicated
ihe problem wiih new difficulties, The
states that adopted the prohibition
aystorn soou found theuiselvos ronfron-
icd wilh two evil- in-lead of one, the
old dlSOUse of intemperance and the
new "remedy" of Prohibition. And
now the successors of the men who rallied round ihe -taudnrd of Nenl
How are making precisely ihe same
promises      nnd   predictions     • hal   were
mode <>f old.

It   does   noi    stand   OUl   ah ,      simple,

ists   would     have  Us      believe.   It   i-   at
< moo a moral and economic, a physiological and psychological and, in ils
liual analysis a  purely   personal
problem. It contains many
elements and involves many
perplex inu dill'mnllies. When we look
below the surface and study this problem in ils deeper aspects, we tied
lhat its roots are inextricably intertwined wilh LllOSO of other social pro
blems. So that genuine and thorough

Legislation has its part to play —
ami a noi unimportant part in any
comprehensive programme of temper-
unco reform;, but when legislation encroaches on the domain ot the church
mul the home when it ventures to
act ns a substitute lor purely social
and moral agencies, it uot only tui Is
tii accomplish auy good, bul causes
the greatest  harm.
No legislative system has over been
mure extensively or fairly tested than
thnt of prohibition, During tlie last
sixty years il has been tried on the
statewide senle in many different sections of the country and under lhe
most diverse social and political conditions, the periods of trial ranging
from three years in Nebraska in Hlty-
three years in Vermont. By its record
by what ii has done, mid by what it
has not done, PROHIBITION must be
judged. On every page of that record
from beginning to end uio written
.Nowhere aud at no time, in all it-
history, hus Pro hi bii ion accomplished
a single one of its avowed object-.
Nowhere has it prevented tho consumption of liquor, nor lessened the evil of
iutemperunce. Neither as ti state-wide
system nor under Local Option litis
Prohibition evei' made i he slightest
contribution toward the solution of
the liquor problem. The one solitary
service that it hus rendered to society
is that of furnishing a warning ex
ample of da- supremo folly of attempting to legislate virtue iuto men's
There oould bo un stronger evideiiec
of the failure of Prohibition than tho

adopted      Prohibition    in    y I faith.
They honestly mul earnestly desired
io wipe out intemperance. Thej realized lhal iniempernnce wa- directly of

it wus a hindrance n. material prosperity and to moral progress. They

that Prohibition wa- even measurably
sueeessful in these -tales, lhat il accomplished   even   a   little   good,   i-      to
insult ihe intelligence of the people of
Now .England. The onlv conclusion
consistent with reason and common

way. A good farm could be purchased by the County, Them l would establish an institution. I believe that
handled m this wny the number of
confirmed drunkards—which ii seems
to me is increasing all the time,—
might  bo  reduced  rapidly."
And there in Maine where prohibi-
tiou ha» reigned triumphant for 57
years, in which two generations have
come und gone, there in Prohibition
Maine the drunkards farm is to be organised as a reformatory institution !
All hail, drunkard's farm! All hail,
Prohibitionists! All hail Maine let thy
light so  shine.1
Her name is a reproach. Her hypocrisy smells to heaven! Her star
iu the lield of blue upon our country's
banner blazes out her shame aud desecrates its  sanctity.
The report of the Commit to of Fifty
bused on a most thorough and extensive investigation nf conditions in
Maine, tells the whole story of the
miserable failure of Prohibition thro'-
out the whole state. The statistics relating to arrests for drunkenness all
tell the game tali-. They spell the
word  FAILURE.
In response io the loud clumorhfgs
of the anti-saloon league, the legislature of Georgia, oliactod a prohibitory
law    ,i   i-ollple   of   year-   ago.       The   act
went  im.. effect    January   1st.,     I1.*"**.
l'or   a   -hoit    lime   l he   new    law    seemed
i.. have ;i good effect. .Judging from
surface indications is looked as if pro
hibition might at last break ii- long
record of failure and actually slop the
sale of liquor. But again ii was all
a dream, ami a very short one too.
The drinker- adjusted themselves to
the "dry" system, and were soon hob
nobbing as openly and boldly as ever
w iil> the old demon. Conditions kept
going from bad lo worse, and before
lhe law nnd been on the stulue books a
yoar ii wa- clear!} evident to everyone
that hud even half au eve that Prohibition  in  tleorgin  had  broken down.
Here    i-    lhe    le-liinoliy    of    Iwo   of    I |ie
Pi'.hibition leaders themselves, Re\ ,
Dr. Iloldcrby, of Atluuln, an ardent
Prohibitionist, said lasl winter;
The legislature ist afraid Lo*stand bj

lhe   Almighty,
This confession uiu-t have been very
humiliating tn the good parson, as In-
had been  telling Jiis people right along
thai   he   knew    it    to   be   fact    lhat       the
Almighty  was on  the side of  Prohibition.    Assistant     Superiulejideiit    Rich-
ards,  of   the  Anti-Saloon   LougUC,     niter-  hi- vvuil:
"Beer i- sold here right  ami left and
J   know    it.     VoU   ean   get    whi-key,   loo;
for   what   does   it   mean   when   tweniv-
seven  cal load- of  beei   and  win-key are
-hipped   here'.'"
Well, Brother Richards, it  uiouuh   in
lhe lirst plucOj thai there are a good
many thirsty people in Vtluiltu, and
iu   tin*   second   place,   lhal     your   PRO
lho writer is very familiar with the
working of Prohibition, under the Lo
eai Option System, in a number of the
towns  on   lhe  mi   end   of   Long Island,
and from his own observation  during
the hot -even vear- he can lostlfy in
thfc   fa.-t    lhal    in   e\ery   one   nf      the c
"dry*1 towns Prohibition hn- boon i
disgusting farce every lime it hus been
tried.   In  ilu- writer's own town     I he
 nl  of   Prohibition mny be slimmed
up in the admission of tho AuU-Sn
loon League leader ilinl "Anybody
can c-i all lhe liquor he wauls in thi-
town under oil her lieense or no-license.
That mi license has failed to ueoomp
lish any good on Long Island, mav
be inferred from lhe fart that at the
lasi elections last spring ovory
town      nu (he      Island was ral
lied      for       license by      a derisive
majority. The        Ami -    Saloon
League made the light ui its life, bill
ii  wn- of do use.      The people knew ull
aboul the "BLESSINGS" of Prohibi
tion and they concluded that they had
had enough. Tho Prohibitionists lost
e\eiv lown ihev ilun held, Including
Conservative old oust Hampton, whioh
gave a majority for license foi tho first
time in FIFTY  YEARS.
The following considerations will reveal a few of ihe moro general reasons
why prohibition in ihis country has
proved a failure.
Prohibition is an ut tempt to deprive
men of what they believe to be the inherent righi. The question of individual rights is the underlying issue in
this whole controversy. Majority rule
is, of course, a sound political principal, but it is obvious that the application of this principle must be confined within reasonable limits. If a
majority has a right to say to a min
ority:"Yoii shall not drmk beer."
another majority has rfhe right to say
to another minority "You shall uot
to another majority "You shall not
drink tea." .Now if the people in any
slate or lown should take iulo their
heads to enact a law prohibit ing tho
use of lea. what a fearful howl would
go up from the camp of the W. (.'. T.
I'., and what an unenviable job the
ollicers would have in attempting in
enforce such a law. "What, deprive
US of our right to "Serve leu at our
mothers' i nee tings and parlor socials.
Why, it's an outrage." "Oh, bin
gooij ladies, ue the majority, made up
as you know, ot ihe better element,
have thoroughly investigated thi- mat
ter, and we have found lhal tea i- very
injurious. In fact it- a poison. Look
at ihe thousands of women that have
gone down to tea-mpcrs'grave-. Look
at ilu- army nt innocent little children
lhat have be.-n left motherless," ei..
A- a inutter ol fuel mam experienced
physicians believe thai lea and coffee
cause quite as much trouble in the
world a- alcohol, lh- "Temperance
people will retort: "Yes, but there is
a wide difference between beer and tea.'
Of course there is, and   lhal   is w hv   so
main     people      prefer   the  I r,      Bui
there is no difference between the right
to drink the one and lhe right to
think  ilu- other.
The us- .,f alcoholic  li(j s  i-     ami
ha- always been considered not only
legitimate as a beverage, but it is
consecrated   and    hallowed   ill   lhe    st
solemn and woigbtj rilo of tho
CHRISTIAN    UUURCli.     Now     vou
cannot, bv a mere law, eradicate a
sentiment, and destroy au institution
that has stood fnr UgCS, and ihni i-
so deeply tooled in our whole social
life. Prohibition condemns i he con
science, ihe judgment and ihe sociul
habits of countless generations of lho
inosl highly civilized, progressive ami
moral people. Moreover, Prohibition
pusses condemnation on a branch of
industry that has been recognized
throughout all ages as LEGITIMATE.
An industry in which -ome of lhe
most- venerable and honored religious
orders of the CHRISTIAN UU KCil
have been and are Loday, engaged.
Prohibition necessarily fail- because ii
makes no discrimination bol ween USE
and API SK. It arbitrarily makes a
legal crime of an aci which is neither
wrong in itself nor eoutrurj ta Lho
rights and interests of hocus ty. Bo-
cause two or throe men uso liquor Lo
excess.    Prohibition     would   compel     u
hundred   Inmporiltl IU   to   follow    tho
rule of loial abstinence. One man is
lame,   ihe'efore,   all   hi     MQIgllboi     lllll   I

Again Prohibition lui   failed I in ■

just ho long as the demand continues
just ho long will the supply of liquor
be forthcoming In one way or another.
The attempt to abolish ilu- liijiiortraf
fie by a prohibitory law is as futile as
would be the attempt, lo dry up a river by building a thnn. Prohibitionists
seem  to imagine  lhat   they arc dealing
only with  ihe comparatively fow liquor
dealers whereas they are dealing with
lhe vast multitude <>f men that are
determined' to Use liquor. 'I hev tell
un ihni ihe ulooii i; " "itrsn Well,
be that us ii  may,  lho practical ques
tion is, what blessiug doe-, Prohibition furnish as a substitute? Absolutely none, unless il lie the W. C. L\ U.
mothers' meeting and the week!)
prayer met! ting. These institutions,
excellent us they arc in tueif place,
are hardly adapted Lo satisfy the
social needs of the masses.
Siudents of social science, men who
spent years in observing and studying
the saloon and ilic saloon constituency, whatever views Lhe,) may hold as
io ine eharacLer of Luis institution, ns
it now exists, agree unanimously on
the lollowing three propositions:
1. lhat inn saloon tills a legitimate
social  need,
2. that it is practically the only
institution that  does nil  thi-  need,
;'.. lhal it is worse Ulan useless to
attempt to abolish the saloon until
-some suitable institution be established  as  a  substitute.
A prohibitory law certainlv does not
remove ihis demand. It does not eradicate ihe social instinct and ihe do-
.-ire to di ink lhat lie back of tic demand. In short, it does not destroy u
single one of ihe elements thut constitute the life anil power of lilC -a
loon, h does noi introduce into tho
community a single element lhal acts
as an antidote [or Lho saloon. The
whole root of this institution remains
in ihe i oinmuiiiu inluel. undisturbed

Rubier Foot Wear
The prices of all kinds of rubber goods have advanced
enormously in the last six months. Since Spring buying rubber
foot weur hus advanced 16 p.c. and theindications poinl to a further

ifl.15 per pound. November 1st, 190(1, saw the same commodity
worth $2.15 per pound. Owing to our heavy buying last Spring
for Fall delivery we are still able to sell rubber foot wear nt the
old prices. Until our present stock is sold out tho following is our

Td tiie Electors of Bevelstoke
GENTLEMEN:—I have the honor to anuounce my candidature
for lhe. representation of Revelatoke itidiug in lhe eleetim to be held
on  November 25th, and  request the lavor of your support in this
oontest,    The lollowing is my platfi nn :—
Completion ol the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's Arrowhead & Kootenay line to open up the rich mineral resources of the
Lardeau and Fish Creek, and make the fruit nnd farm lands of
Beaton, Galena Bay, Comaplix, and Camborne available to the beBt
markets, besides placing Arrowhead on n main transcontinental line
of railway and making it the principal shipping port, and manufacturing cenl re on the Arrow Likes. The construction ol Uiis railway
will establish lllrough COlllientiioti between lhe in iin and Crow's Nest,
lines nl ilu- C P, It, system, This will result in Revelstoke becoming
the ni"in junction and nilwny oe-ntro ol Interior British Oolumbia,
and pave llie way for making ihis city the Spokane ul this fair Province. Any financial assistance thai may he necessary from the
Proviuc to i nsiire the immediate c instruction ol this road should be
willingly rendered.
The construction ol n railway up tii i ('. iluniiiii ami Can to River
valleys to open up Revelstoke'd ri;!nsi heritage to the north should
be pushed ahead. When in Revelsloke recently Hon. Prank Oliver,
Minister of the lutcrinr, made public the assurance that the
Dominion Government wuiiul give Ihe assistance necessary to seen rn
the construction ol a railway to open up this count.y, aud if any
further assistance should he tequire I to secure its early construe ion
ii should In- given hy ihe Province,
The Government's railway policy, proponing to lie up tlie credit
ol the Province to the extent of sfl'i (Kltl.lliili in piinoipal anil iuieiest
for :i r.iil.viiv that must he built in any case tu complete the Canadian
Northern Transcontinental sjstem, and which np-.-ns up nnly
two l>unilr. <1 miles ol new tetritory iu lhu North Thompson Valley,
is one which should be apposed by every well wisher of Revelsloke.
Such a policy, if carried out, would he a serious thing, for not
only would it destroy tbe credit ol lhe Province f,,r an extensive development and railway construction pdioy for which tins Province
will he rtquired iu the near luture lo provide, but so far aa Revelsloke
is concerned it would cut this city i IV Ubth iijrtli aud soutb Irom tho
ini-iness properly belonging to it. The northern business would bs
diverted duwn the North Thompson Valley to the Coast, while the
southern ir.illic wh.eh now forms socli a large volume ol tbe transportation btisiuess coming through Revi Istoke would be diverted hy
way of tbe Okanagan aud Nicola Valleys, thus hugely reducing tlie
railway labor tmpluyc-d here. A uiure attioid tl oolioy, so far as Kev-
elsluke is concerned, was never placed before the people of this city
aud district, and I call on every iihu interested in the Kevelstoke
Riding to rally round me, and stop ouce anil for all the attempt so
deliberately put up to injure this secliou of the Province, which so
many of us have spent the beat years ol uur life in endeavoring to develop and build up.
Roads and trails.
Considering tbe immense revenue contributed by tlie Revelstuke
Riding in the shape of Timber Licenses, iIn- Rovelstoke Riding has
not h d a square ib al, and it is time it, tj,,t one. Tfi,' Riding should
be - poiitd up by a thorough system ol roids and trai'-i o instructed in
a permanent manner and under oimpotent supervision. The lirst
works i hit should be imd'-rtaken in this direction are:—
Coi slruetiouol a wagon mad between RevelBtoke nml Arrowhead.
t   instruotiun and operation of a tramway past Death Rapids.
Construed .„ of such portions cf road as ary required to give the
besi possible transportation to iiig Demi and points between R-vel-
s-i ke and fate .1 nine Cache, si that Revelstoko, as the nearest busi-
nees centre thereto, shall share in thu bent fits resulting Irom the
!nr ;e exoenditure in tli-t c in itructiou of the Grand Trunk Paoifl ■ and
