The Plebscite and the Royal
Commission
Nearly 35,000 signatures were
presented to the Government and
Members of the Provincial Parli-
ment asking for a Local Option
Law, and a desputation of 150
men from all parts of the Province waited on the Executive on
February 2nd. The promise of
an answer was made and given
in 26 days. In the meantime,
liquor men "got busy" as advised,
and sent 400 telegrams and a deputation to the Government urging that a Local Option Law be
not granted, and that the present
liquor law be not interfered with.
In other words: Do not listen
to those 35,000 persons and the
large and influential deputation
that made their appeal, but listen
to us. Though the province gave
1,000 majority ten years ago, and
the sentiment is stronger now,
liquordon must rule politics, and,
indirectly, the country.
The government declined to
give a local option law, and instead, decided on a plebiscite vote
at some future date���the terms
and time of which are not ytt
given. This was the answer to the
large appeal for a local option
law. It is an unnecessity delay
and expression of great weakness
on the part of the government.
They have other aspects of the
situation to consider, it is true,
and there is no desire to unjustly
censure them. At the same time,
the refusal of a simple acknowledged right.is very unsatisfactory. They refuse to give the
people that right without a
further and fuller expression of
their desire. It is therefore a
question for the people to settle
in the way they think best, and
| settle it they will���in spite of the
! long and terrible reign of liquor-
| dom in B. C.   The plebiscite will
j be accepted by the people, though
| every effort will be made by the
liquor   interest    to   defeat    it.
British Columbia is going to be
free from this slavery; drinkdom
will die hard.
On the top of this plebiscite, a
resolution was passed in the legislature on March 4th, asking for
a royal commission to be appointed to enquire into the liquor traffic. The very men who refused a
local option law and agreed to take
a plebiscite, voted for this royal
commision; thus undoutbedly
shelving the temperance demand.
It is presumed that the Premier
had something to do with that
resolution, because he asked the
members on his side to vote for
it, all who did, save four. The
vote stood thus: For-Messrs.
Williams, Hawthornthwaite, Mc-
Innis, McBride, Bowser, Cotton,
Shatford, Ross, McPhillips, Hunter, Taylor, Garden, Macgowan,
Gifford, Grant, Benhsen, Mc-
Guire, Davey, Schofield ��� 19.
Against���Messrs. King, Eagle-
son, Kergin, Oliver, McDonald,
Munro, Jardins, Brewster, Tatlow, Ellison, Young, Hayward
12. The nineteen gentlemen who
voted yea, prejudged the question
of local option, without trying it.
They seem to have swallowed,
wholesale and retail, the statement made by the mover. The
first "Whereas" acknowledges
the evils of the drink taffic; the
second ' 'Where'' says local option
is "objectionable and ineffective"; the fourth "Whereas" says
the Gothenberg system, viz.,
government control, removes
many of the evils, and therefore
these nineteen gentlemen asked
the Lieutenant-Governor to appoint a royal commision to enquire into the liquor traffice in a
very one sided manner. No thi ng
is said of the crime, poverty, disease, immorality, moral and Financial loss to the people and the
country, and a score of other
things which should be included.
It is to be hoped that the Lieut.
���Governor will shew his superior
sense by not granting such a request.
This second step in shelving
the question will arouse the
spirit of the temperance people
to white heat. The government
lost a great opportunity of doing
themselves credit. The very
fact that the liquor men do not
want it, and oppose it, is one of
the best proofs possible that it is
a good thing. Prominent men of
both parties are stoutly denouncing this yield to the liquor interest. A choice between the
liquor vote and the moral vote is
the crux of the whole business.
The people whose signatures
went into the government and
the members, must draw their
own conclusions. We wish the
government had faced the situation manfully and bravely: tho.
country would have been with
them.
It is to the praise of the Conservatives and all the Liberals
who voted against the royal commission dodge. The enquiry is
being made everywhere���if the
Conservative government will
not give a local option law, will
the Liberals give it if returned
to power? It will be up to every
candidate at the next election
of both parties, to take a pledged
stand on this moral question,
whether the local political associations or caucuses say so or not.
Let the temperance men do some
thinking.
Mr Hawthornthwaite's speech
on royal commission and resolution, was as bad as any he ever
made. He does not know the
trend of public opinion, nor does
he know the weakness of the
Gothenberg system.   He believes

School Accommodation.
The question of school accommodation, when the outlying portions of the municipality become
more settled, is one that will require careful consideration on
the part of the board of trustees.
The problem will arise as to
whether it will be better to have
one large graded school, well
equipped, well graded, and well
taught by a competent staff ol
teachers, or to have a number ol
ungraded country schools, in each
of which one teacher is obliged
to cover the school curriculurr
from the primary classes to the
high school entrance. To anj
person who has given the subject careful consideration, there
can be but one choice���that ir.
favor of the one central school.
The time may come, when oui
pDpulation has grown into the
thousands, that several large
graded schools will be required,
bat such a condition is too fai
ahead for consideration at thit
time.
At present a number of the
pupils have to walk several miles
to school. This means that the
settlement of a few more families
i i certain sections will result in
tha opening of country schools,
u iless the trustee board find s
bitter solution of the problem.
It will devolve upon the board
either to provide educational
facilities near at hand or to provide means of conveying the
pupils to the school already existing. It will be for the board
to figure out which will cost the
least to the municipality, the
providing of school stages or
the erecting and maintaining of
rural schools. This question
will probably have to be solved
within a year.
The centralization of schools is
working very satisfactorily in
parts of the province of Manitoba and elsewhere in the east,
and should work equally well
here. In fact, in our opinion,
there could be no place more
favorably situated for the purpose than the Penticton public
school in its relation to the surrounding country. One stage
from the bench and one from
Dog Lake would probably provide the necessary accommodation for a year or two.
have simply removed the drinking
from the open bar to homes and
private dens, and though crime
and other evils are somewhat
diminished, it is owing to the
operation of local option, which
came into force about the same
time, while the Gothenberg system claims the credit. No system, not even politics, ever gave
so much freedom for graft. "Eliminate the Profit" is a favorite
phrase. In other words, give
as the drink but let no one get
any profit out of it. "Dives"
is another cry, but Owen Sound
.nen say there are less dives under
local option than under license.
Our B. C. large cities are samples of dives under liquor law.
Jould it be worse? Liquor men
jlaim that more liquor is consumed under local option law. If so,
now foolish of them to oppose it?
Moral ethics is not the. saloon
.���reed.
If direct legislation is a plank
in the Socialist platform, how is
it that, with few exceptions, they
jppose direct legislation giving
the people power to legislate in
liquor traffic matters ? And if
the member for Nanaimo applied
his own argument to himself, he
would not now be an M. P. P.
Vlajorities do rule and he accepts
that doctrine for himself on suitable occasions, and why he
should be afraid of the people
aiopting the same doctrine, is a
S )cialistic conundrum.
The campaign is on. Let every
noral reformer work. If the
foolish move of the government,
jven for liquor support reasons,
neans their defeat and the placing of the Liberals in power,
who is to blame? Never had a
government a better opportunity
of enacting a good piece of legislation without making it a party
question. They have lost that
opportunity. We must put principle before party and vote for
the men who will put the settlement of the liquor question in
the hands of the people. We
know that a large sum of money
is being subscribed to defeat such
men and measures, and it will be
up to the temperance and moral
people of the province to decide
the issue. Merchants had better
take the situation to heart. We
think that whatever men or
party will make local option and
kindred reforms a plank in their
platform, should command the
sapport of the electorate.
The Local Option League is
non-partisan, non-sectarian, and
its basis is that of a broad citizenship. It must ever be so. It
is not a question with the League
as to which party is in power,
but it is a question as to who
will give the people their inherent right as citizens of a free
country-Ho exercise their franchise in respect to one of the
greatest questions that has ever
confronted the people of the
greatest and fairest province of
the Dominion of Canada. We
set ourselves to accomplish this
task.

that local option would lower
wages; in other words, a sober
province would be poorer than a
drunken province. That $20,-
OJ0.00 are spent in liquor every
month at Nanaimo ought to be
of some consequence to its mem-
bar. His speech puts a premium
on drinking. Mr. Joseph Malins
says that in his examination of
the Gothenberg system, he found
more drunkness in one day than
in one month where license prevails, In South Carolina, the
people found it was the occasion
of the worst graft ever known,
and they returned to local option.

To the Editor of The Pknticton Press :
Dear Sir, ���I would like to make
a suggestion which I think after
' a little while would be in favor
! by the general public, and that
| is that the half holiday be on
Saturday afternoons instead of
on Thursdays as heretofore. In
the first place Thursday breaks
too much into the week of business. On Saturday the banks
close at 12 o'clock, and I hear
the carpenters are having Saturday afternoon as their half holiday; and, although I am a storekeeper myself, I don't see why
we could not close say at 1
o'clock. It is not a manufacturing town at present, and the
public would have time enough
on Friday and Saturday morning
to get their supplies for Sunday.
Yours truly,
Storekeeper.

Are extensive growers of all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs, Roses, nnd Ornamental Trees, nnd
the members of the firm are all practical nurserymen of 2"i years experience, and have built up
the most successful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The growing of1 the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with the work, is
personally superintended by the individual members of the (Inn, and they work on the plan that
the best is none too good for their customers.
. . We have made large, shipments of trees into the Okanagan Valley and ran give the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Qur trees are grown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in n climate very similar
to that of the Okanagan Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are the Coast stock, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of fibrous roots, which count for much in making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one.
"We shall be pleased to hear from prospective planters, with a view to supplying them with
the best grade of trees, true to, name.
We wish to secure the services of a good reliable man to represent us at Penticton and

shiister power and soreness which
had vibrated iu his voice. What kind
of life was she entering where men
spoke of strange women with this assurance and hinted thus of ownership':
That he was handsome and uncoil
sclous of it she acknowledged, and
had she met bim in her accustomed
circle of friends, garbed in the cor
ventionalities. she would perhaps have
thought of Iiiui as a striking inun. vigorous and intelligent, but here lie seem
ed naturally to take on the attributes
of bis surroundings, acquiring a pic
turesque negligee of dress nnd morals
nnd suggesting rugged, elemental
chilling potentialities. While with

of his strong personality Hinging at
her; aware of the unbridled passionate flood of a nature iinlironklllg nf
delay and heedless of denial. This It
was that antagonized her and set hei
every mental sinew lu rigid resistance
During Dextry's garrulous ranihllngs
Glenlster emerged from the darkness
and 'lilently took Ills place beside hei
against the rail.
"What portent do you see that makes
you stare Into the night so anxiously?"
he Inquired.
"1 am wishing for n sight of the
midnight sun or the aurora boreulis.'
she replied.
"Too late for one an' too fur south
for the other." Dextry Interposed
"We'll see tbe sun further north
though."
"Have yon ever heard the real origin
of the northern lights'/" the young man
inquired.
"Naturally. I never have," she an
swered.
"Well, here It Is. I have it from

"One winter a terrible famine settled

The dogs grew gnunt nnd howled all

"Then it was that Itika decided lo
go hunting over Ihe snw tooth range
which formed the edge of the world
They tried to dissuade llliu, saying it
was certain death because n pack of
monstrous white wolves taller than tbe
moose and swifter than the eagle was
known to range these IllouutUitlH. running mildly iu chase. Always on clear,

"Perhaps you will." Olenlster replied, "although it is nut a woman's

BEAUTIFUL OKANAGAN VALLEY
Valuable Town Lot Given Away.
I am placing on the market a
large tract of the finest fruit
lands ever offered to the public,
upon which I am constructing a
pressure pipe system of irrigation. Upon completion of this
work this will be the first place
in Canada where lot holders will
have irrigation water under pressure and enjoy beautiful domestic water in their homes the year
round.
These lands stretch for over
Tour miles along the west shores
of Dog Lake, which is four miles
south of Okanagan Lake. The
location is a picture of fascinating charm and loveliness. Here
there are hundreds of acres of
beautiful prairie slopes surrounding a very pretty townsite on a
charming lake beach.
For a suitable name for this
place I will give a building lot in
this townsite. Each proposed
name must be accompanied by
five names and addresses of persons who wish to become interested in fruit culture in the
Okanagan Valley.
Dr. Sawyer and Professor
Perry, of Okanagan College,
Summerland, have kindly con-
s mted to select the most suitable
name from amongst those submitted.
Competition closes April 7th.
