PROSPERITY OF PRINCE RUPERT
NOT FOUNDED UPON DRINK
Mr. Blakemore Refused the Right to

Frank Confession of Mr. Peck.���
Large Audience Present
While Saturday was devoted to proving that Prohibition, or that any measure
that tended in that direction, was the
worst form of intemperance, last night
was utilized by the Scott Act petitioners
in justifying their ways to a large
audipnee in the Empress Theatre.
Contrary to general expectation the
meeting was not open and the chairman,
Mr. G. R. Naden, stated so at the outset
so thut theie might be no bickering
later. In spite of that precaution, however, the bickering came along. Mr.
Blakemore who was in the theatre
questioned the fairness of having the
wind driven *hrough his arguments
without having an opportunity to patch
them up again. Mr. Blakemore's question lengthened out and began to
assume the proportions of a Bpeech when
the chairman cut him of! and applied
the closure by commanding the audience
to rise and sing the National Anthem
which they did in so hearty a manner
that Mr. Blakemore's voice was drowned
Mr. Peck Made Speech
In the role of a business man who had
suffered through the ramifications of
the liquor traffic both personally and
impersonally Mr. C. W. Peck made a
personal confession, which interested the
audience and proved the speaker's
sincerity. As he himself asserted, his
proportions did not warrant the accusation that all prohibitionists were
lean fanatics, and of course he did not
think he was a fat fanatic cither.
Dr. Spencer Hit Out
Dr. Spencer was the last speaker. In
rebutting the arguments of his opponent, Mr. Blakemore, he declared that
the foundation of Prince Rupert's
prosperity was not bound up with the
liquor traffic. Prosperity for Prince
Rupert had been assured long before
there was a license in the city at all;
and if the city's future depended upon
its association with the liquor traffic
then he was sorry for that future and
for the men of Prince Rupert.
Sir George Reid, Australian High
Commiasioner in London Says it
Would Decrease by One Third the
Current Rates.
Melbourne, Dec. 10.���The Commonwealth Government is deeply interested
in the project of an all-red cable from
Great Britain to Australia. Various
schemes hnve been put forward, but each
of them in turn has been found difficult
of execution either on the ground t f
cost or for some other reason.
A remarkable proposal has just been
added to those already advanced. Sir
George Reid, the Australian high commissioner in London, suggests that a
new cable be laid from Britain via the
Shetland Islands to Greenland, across
the inhospitable shores of that misnamed country to Labrador and thence
to Montreal, where connection would
be made with the Pacific cable now in
use.
In putting forward his scheme, Sir
George states that he believes the introduction of a rival service would
reduce one-third the present charges
of the Atlantic companies.
The labor government is anxious
lhat a state-owned cable should be
put in operation with the old country
and for that reason it is inclined to
regard the proposal of Sir George Reid
favorably.

"I have never been able to
convince myself that what we call
to*pl abstinence is essential to
morality. The moderate and oc
casional use of alcoholic liquors is
not to be conden ned. In coun,
tries like France and Italy where
the people as a rule drink wine
no serious harm results from the
practice. Even in Rome���even
at the Vat'can���wine 's not prohibited.
"I long since came to under-
ss..., ! lhat, putting aside the
point of principle, it was virtually
impossible to enforce a total
abstinence law in a community
or in a state. Look at Maine,
for instance, and you will see how
true this is. The attempt to
enforce such a law must consequently lead to one of the worst
things���illegality or hypocrisy,
possibly to both."
Father Hartman said last Friday evening in Mclntyre Hall:
"I say to my people, make up
your minds and vote according to
your conscience. Decide honestly,
vote freely. As for me I am
opposed to the Scott Act."
The Vancouver papers came ou
recently with a report to the effect that
the British Columlia waters are being
poached by the Americans. Confirmation of this statement is brought to
Prince Rupert today by the skipper of
the Government patrol boat Kestral
which is taking on twenty tons of coal
from Mr. Rochester.
The skipper says that the Yankees
are certainly using the British waters
for illegal fishing but they are not doing
so within his territory. The particular
spot which the poachers are favoring
is off Sydney Island where they are
practically immune from interference.

renders it very difficult for them U
catch thc law breakers. It is not necessary for them to confine their operations
to any one spot as fish is plentiful all
along the coast, and by the time the
! patrol boats get wind of them they are
| gone like fleeting shadows to batten on
| another shore.
The H M. C. S. Rainbow will assist
the patrol boats in quelling this illicit
i traffic and it is anticipated that her
' superior speed will enable her to effect
| some important captures. On her
; northern cruise the Rainbow will call at
I Prince Rupert on the 15th of next month.
Just at noon today one of Lindsay
Bros.' heavy teams took fright and
bolted along Third avenue from Fulton
sreeet to the junction. Right through
the business section the horses stampeded
going at I breakneck pace, with the
heavy covered wagon swaying and
leaping beh'nd them like a ship in a gale.
Everybody was out after them as
; they thundered across Sixth street, and
shaving the sewer cut by a hair's breadth
1 took the rise to Seventh street without
slacking their mad rush in the slightest.
Pell mell through the mud went a score
of helpers half a mile behind.
Halfway down thc slope of Third
avenue towards Eighth street a whole
bunch of horses and vehicles was
clustered, and into the midst of them
plunged the runaway team headlong.
There wasn't time to do a thing but
jump, and teams and drivers just
jumped in all directions.
Lynch Bros.' light delivery van stood
in the way. The horse saw the runaway
coming and leapt off the street, van and
all, smashing the plank path to the
Svea restaurant, and breaking thc tip
of the shaft.
A timber drag of Moore Bros, was
struck fair by the runaway, and cut
clean in two. The Pioneer Laundry
light van escaped by a miracle, and the
other teams took to the side walks for
safety. Still madly stampeding Lindsay's
team dashed on, their course taking the
terrified horses straight for the deep fill
by Lynch Bros.' store. It looked like
a bad smash due in about ten seconds.
By good fortune, however, the clatter
of the flying hoofs attratced the attention of the store men and George Eke-
man dashed out in time to stop the
runaway before the horses plunged into
the dump. The team and van were
unhurt, but one of the horses had cast
a shoe at the point where Moore's wagon
was smashed. The shoe was found
lying there in the plankway splintered
by the pounding hoof.

' has been presented to the Prince Kupert

Thc Question of the Hour
Both Provincial Chief of Police Wyna
and Municipal thief McCarvell report
"nothing doing" for the past week-end.
Well-behaved Prince Rupert is concentrating on the S,ott Act controversy,
and no doubt the Provincial district is
looking on with interest.
Notice to the Public
Fearing any misunderst-inding in
regard to the meeting held ;n the Empress
Theatre Sunday evening, the Local
Option League wishes to inform the
public that this meeting was called to
discuss thc Local Option question and
it was distinctly understood that it was
not a joint meeting. At the invitation
of the liquor men we sent two speakers
to their meeting on Friday evening
and as a matter of courtesy we have
extended to them an invitation to send
a speaker to our meeting at the Majestic Theatre this i Monday) evening,
which they have consented to do.
Our other meetings are not joint meet
ings. We did nol intrude on thc meetings called by the liquor interests and
presume they do not wish to intrude on
ours.   This is British fair play.

CONTINUED FROM  PACE 1
down  the pillars of argument erected
by his opponents.
Economics and Grammar
Mr. Faris opened the ball with a
frank appeal to economic law supplemented here and there by a series
of heavy asides of a sentimental nature.
He was followed by Dr. Mclntyre who
immediately joined issue on all and
every point referred to. The worthy
doctor evoked no end of mirth by his
laconic and presumably logical demonstrations of how and why, as well as
why not, certain places on the other
side of the line had turned on or turned
off the tap. So subtle was the argumentative variance in some instances
that the difference became almost in
distinguishable. One of the worthy
doctor's special side lines was correcting
the grammar of his literary opponent,
Dr. Spencer, and it proved a diversion
entirely to the audience's b'king.
Mr. Kerr Wa* Brilliant
The doctor's prosaic deliverance was
followed by the brilliantly versatile
effusion of Mr. Kerr who, in his early
passages, had the house going with excitement. He started out with a perfect
command of language but ere he had
completed the journey his subject revolted and became master of him.
Sincerity, not verbosity, was the cause
of his losing the firm hold he had established earlier. A misunderstanding
with Dr. Mclntyre, a half uttered
accusation met by a prompt denial, and
Mr. Kerr was thrown from the path of
his discourse. He recovered his ground
later, only to be checked by the call of
"Time."
Mr. Blakemore Had Last Word
Then came Mr. Blakemore with his
cold and calculated arguments taking
up the threads of his opponents and
clipping them with a precision that
was almost callous.
Not on  the Programme
An unfortunate and seemingly irrelevant reference to the church brought
Father Hartman to his feet and he
insisted on using the platform to explain
that whatever application the reference
might have elsewhere it had none to
his church. This impromptu turn was
succeeded by another and the meeting
began to develop an all-night-sitting
aspect. However the assurance of the
chairman and Mr. Blakemore that the
Rev. Mr. McLeod would have an
opportunity to have his say assuaged
that gentleman's feelings in the matter
and afforded an opportunity fnr ad

the inhospitable shores of that misnamed country to Labrador and thence
to Montreal, where connection would
be made with the Pacific cable now in
use.
In putting forward his scheme. Sir
George states that he believes the introduction of a rival service would
reduce one-third the present charges
of thc Atlantic companies.
The labor government is anxious
lhat a state-owned cable should bc
put in operation w-th the old country
and for that reason it is inclined to
regard the proposal of Sir George Reid
favorably.
Cardinal
Gibbons
"I have never been able to
convince myself that what we call
to'p.l abstinence is essential to
morality. The moderate and oc
casional use of alcoholic liquors is
not to bc conden ned. In coun,
tries like France and Italy where
the people as a rule drink wine
no serious harm results from the
practice. Even in Rome���even
at the Vatican���wine is not prohibited.
"I long since came to understand lhat, putting aside the
point of principle, it was virtually
mpossiblc to enforce a total
abstinence law in a community
or in a state. Look at Maine,
for instance, and you will see how
true this is. The attempt to
enforce such a law must consequently lead to one of the worst
things���illegality or hypocrisy,
possibly to both."
Father Hartman said last Friday evening in Mclntyre Hall:
"I say to my people, make up
your minds and vote according to
your conscience. Decide honestly,
vote freely. As for me I am
opposed to the Scott Act."
RAINBOW COMING NORTH
AFTERYANKEE POACHERS
Kestrel Reports That Poachers Are Busy Off Sydney
Island���New Swift Canadian Cruiser Will Take
*   Hand in Their Capture���Is Coming on a
Tour of  the  Northern  Waters
The Vancouver papers came ou
recently with a report to the effect that
the British Columlia waters are being
poached by the Americans. Confirmation of this statement is brought to
Prince Rupert today by the skipper of
the Government patrol boat Kestral
which is taking on twenty tons of coal
1 from Mr. Rochester.
The skipper says that the Yankees
are certainly using the British waters
! for illegal fishing but they are not doing
! so within his territory. The particular
.spot which the poachers are favoring
I is off Sydney Island where they are
,practically immune from interference.
The vast stre*ches of water to be covered
i by the three patrol boats now on service
renders it very difficult for them ta
catch tho law breakers. It is not necessary for them to confine their operations
| to any one spot as fish is plentiful all
'along the coast, and by lhe time the
patrol boats get wind ot them they are
j gone like fleeting shadows to batten on
: another shore.
The H M. C. S. Rainbow will assist
. the patrol boats in quelling this illicit
{traffic and it is anticipated that her
' superior speed will enable her to effect
{some important captures. On her
' northern cruise the Rainbow will call at
i Prince Rupert on the 15th of next month.
HORSE AND VAN
LEAP FOR LIFE
EXCITING SCENE AT NOON TODAY
Transfer Team Bolt* Along Third
Avenue and Crashes Through a
Cluster of Other Team*. Remarkable Escape*. One Wagon Smashed.
AT PRINCE RUPERT CLUB
Intereating Display of Minerals Exhibited
] [l *******!
Just at noon today one of Lindsay
Bros.' heavy teams took fright and
bolted along Third avenue from Fullon
sreeet to the junction. Right through
the business section the horses stampeded
going at a breakneck pare, with the
heavy covered wagon swaying and
leaping behind them like a ship in a gale.
Everybody was out after them as
they thundered across Sixth street, and
shaving the sewer cut by a hair's breadth
took the rise to Seventh street without
slacking their mad rush in the slightest.
Pell mell through the mud went a score
of helpers half a mile behind.
Halfway down thc slope of Third
avenue towards Eighth street a whole
bunch of horses and vehicles was
clustered, and into the midst of them
plunged the runaway team headlong.
There wasn't time to do a thing but
jump, and teams and drivers just
jumped in all directions.
Lynch Bros.' light delivery van stood
in the way. The horse saw the runaway
coming and leapt off the street, van anil
all, smashing the plank path to thc
Svea restaurant, and breaking thc tip
of the shaft.
A timber drag of Moore Bros, was
struck fair by the runaway, and cut
clean in two. The Pioneer Laundry
light van escaped by a miracle, and the
other teams took to the side walks for
safety. Still madly stampeding Lindsay's
team dashed on, their course taking the
terrified horses straight for the deep fill
by Lynch Bros.' store. Il looked like
a bad smash due in about ten seconds.
By good fortune, however, the clatter
of the flying hoofs attratced the attention of the store men and George Eke-
man dashed out in time to stop the
runaway before the horses plunged into
the dump. The team and van were
unhurt, but one of the horses had cast
a shoe at the point where Moore's wagon
was smashed. The shoe was found
lying there in the plankway splintered
by the pounding hoof.
Through the courtesy of Mr. D. A.
' McKinnon a fine case of ore specimens
' has been presented to the Prince Kupert
Club.   Some of the finest specimens of
ore from the Hazelton distriet are displayed including "Laad King," "Silver
Cup,"   "American   Boy,"   and   Angus
! Stewart's "Canadian Boy."    Pine ore
1 samples from the Portland Canal district
| are also represented and the whole case
' forms a handsome cxhib-t ol great in
j terest to visitors to Prince Rupert.
Band of Love Begin*
At lour o'clock tomorrow afternoon
Ensign Johnstone invites girls and boys
of from 6 to 14 years to come to the hall
behind the Salvation Army Citadel
for enrolment if Lieutenant Wright's
"Band of Love" classes for drill ami
calisthenics. There is no entrance fee
for joining.
Thc Question of the Hour
Both Provincial Chiel of Police Wyna
and Municipal Chief McCarvell report
"nothing doing" for thc past week-end.
Well-behaved Prince Rupert is concentrating on the Scott Act controversy,
and no doubt thc Provincial district is
looking on with interest.
Notice to thr Public
Fearing any misunderstanding in
regard to the meeting held 'n the Empress
Theatre Sunday evening, the Local
Option League wishes to inform the
public that this meeting was called to
discuss the Local Option question and
it was distinctly understood that it was
not a joint meeting. At the invitation
of the liquor men we sent two speakers
to their meeting on Friday evening
and as a matter of courtesy we have
extended to them an invitation to send
a speaker to our meeting at the Majestic Theatre this i Monday) evening,
which they have consented to do.
Our other meetings are not joint meet
ings. We did not intrude on the meetings called by thc liquor interests and
presume they do not wish to intrude on
ours.   This is British fair play.
Secretary Press Committee
The .Camosun left Prince Rupert
yesterday morning for Vancouver with
passengers and mails. The Senator is
expected to arrive here tonight.

A "Wireless" Woman
Miss Leta Serrans, 20 years old, has
taken the United States civil service
cxaminati n to qualify as a government
wireless telegraph operator. She will be
the first Ws>man wireless operator in
California, perhaps in  he world.
Miss Se mas has been for more than
a year an expert telegraph operator
in the San Francisco office of the Western
Union Telegraph Company. She has
devoted her spare moments to the study
of wireless telegraphy. Her application
for service is before the lighthouse
department.
As one of the three applicants for the
position of wireless operator who had
complied with the requirements and
received permission from Washington to
take the examination, Miss Serrans is
attracting considerable attention.
As a government wireless operator
Miss Serrans will be assigned to duty
at one of the lighthouse w!reless stations along the coast and through the
lonely months of the winter she will
receive and dispatch the messages of
the sea.
Hints For Housewives
Never leave medicine, drink, or food
uncovered in the sick-room.
A clam shell placed inside the kettle
will prevent the formation of lime.
Emborideries   and   colored   garments
should he ironed on the wrong side.
Covering the pan in which the fish
is cooking will make the fish soft.
Clean tins with soap and whiting,
rubbed with a piece of soft flannel.
Parmes n che se, which is useful
only for cooking, should always be kept
grated in a bottle, so that it will always
be ready for use.
Do not be tempted to experiment with
every furniture polish. Never use anything on furniture that you do not
know all about. Doing over ruined
furniture is costly and varnish is easily
hurt.
To keep a meal hot for a late comer,
fill a soup plate nearly full of hot water,
place the dinner plate with its contents
on top of t e hot soup plate and cover
closely with still another p'nte.
French Husbands
The French husband has a faculty
that amounts almost to a genius for
bestowing the delicate attentions which
cost little except the exercise of a modicum of tact and thoughtfulness, but
which carries joy to every true woman's
heart. He not only thinks to take
home to her often (in thc absence of
the means to make a larger offering) a
10-cent bunch of violets, pinks or roses
from the flower market or the itinerant
flower vender's barrow on his route, but
he presents them gallantly with the
compliment and the caress the occasion
calls for; and this makes them confer a
pleasure out of all proportion to their
intrinsic worth.
He remembers her birthday or fete
day with a potted plant, a bit of game,
a box of bonbons, cake from the pastrycook's or a bottle of good wine. He is
marvelously fertile in expedients for
making the time pass quickly and agreeably for her. He has a thousand amusing and successful devices for helping
her to renew her youth. He projects
unique and joyous Sunday and holiday
excursions.   He improvises dainty little
banquets. He is a past master, especially
in the art of conjuring up amiable
mysteries and preparing charming little
surprises. And in all these trivial
enterprises he vindicates the old French
theory that true courtesy consists in
taking a certain amount of pains to so
order our words and our manners that
others "be content with us and with
themselves."
The American husband is particularly
solicitous to do the proper thing: the
French husband to do the agreeable
thing.

A CANDIDATE WITHOUT CONVICTIONS
Now that Alderman Mobley has come out with a frank statement of his attitude on the temperance 'ssue, Mr. Manson must come off the fence and define
kis att'tude. If he does not, he stands tacitly convicted of the charge levelled
against him, of having g'ven pledges of support to both sides.
No argument is needed to demonstrate that a man without opinions or convictions is worthless as the chief executive of a city.
Especially so when he is iopionless on so important a prob'em as how best
to control the sale of liquor w'thin the municipality. A putty man is always a
danger in public life. Weakness and incompetence produce more wrongs in public
life than do bad men.   It is through the weak men that the latter do their work.
Mr. Manson has the acknowledged handicap of having few conv-ctions, and
of readiness to obey orders from these in authority over him at Victoria. If in
addition he does not free himself of the charge of leading both parties in the temperance tight to believe that he is supporting them, he stands utterly discredited
for public service, and unworthy of further consideration by the electors.
I* is no answer to the charge, for Mr. Manson's organ to cuttlefish the question
by asking why the "Optimist" has not stated its position. The "Optimist" is
not running for office of Mayor: Mr. Manson is. As a large taxpayer we have a
right to test the fitness of the man who asks for our suffrage. As a newspaper
we owe a duty to our readers to find out if the charge of double-dealing laid against
Mr. Manson is true. And if the challenge put up to Mr. Manson were offered to
us on the same terms as our challenge to him we would have no compunction in
expressing our personal opinions on the issue.
As an aspirant for public office Mr. Manson's duty is clear. He must come
out and proclaim himself, or by his silence, admit his unworthiness for consideration
as a candidate.

A WORT) TO BOTH PARTIES
The da:ly stories of riots and ructions in the British elections suggest how-
much credit the citizens of Prince Rupert are entitled to for the unexceptionable
manner in which they arc debating the temperance issue.
With one rather inexcusable exception, a.l the speakers on both sides have
conducted themselves admirably. Thc addresses of Mr. Blakemore have been
models of logic, courtesy, ansl unforced reasoning, while the compliment he paid
to tho fairness of his opponent, Mr. \V. J. Faris, in the debate on Friday evening
was a well deserved one.
Perhaps none better han the two working men who spoke on Saturday eveirng
displayed that avoidance of personalities and irrelevant matter which is commonly
but erroneously considered the mark of culture.
It is to be hoped that both sides will continue to exercise care to exclude from
their platforms any who cannot lie trusted to observe the rules of public discussion.

TWO WORTHY CAUSES
The concert to be held in the Empress Theatre on Thursday night by the
newly formed choral society is one that has special claims on the patronage of
the public. Half of the proceeds are to lie given to the new hospital fund: the
other half is to go to the establishing of the society.
Life is not all bound up in real estate and bank clearings. There ir a danger
that in our pioneer work, tho refinements may be overlooked or crowded out. The
initial performance of tho Prince Ru|H>rt Choral Society is worthy of special mention
and supi>ort.

The Optimist THE   PRINCE  RUPERT   OPTIMIST
ME QUESTIONS FOR MR. KERR
Le following ia published by tho Press Com
Tc sif Iho opponent* of the Scott! Act, ��nd lb
},,. ..xpresaion of tho view* of this paocr.)
- Friday night's meeting the Rev.
I Kerr took the ground that any law
Sid by the majority of this city,
d be enforced as a matter of course,
that all good citizens would help
nforce the Scott Act just as readily
hey would the laws against murder
J theft.   Mr. Kerr is a Presbyterian;
Iwritcr was also brought up in the
|bytcrian church, and in his youth
compelled   to  study   the   history
lhat church.    He  found  that  the
��� history of Presbyterianism was a
Knual struggle against laws passed
the majority, and that the move-
!t made its greatest headway in
iritual sense at least, while opposed
prohibitory enactments. Denied
t they considered their lawful right
bcir own views on certain questions,
jthe laws of a tryannical majority,
laneestors of Mr. Kerr and myself,
, into the fields, hedges and hills
"blind pigs" (if one may be allowed
ttcrm, without disrespect) of religion,
, there, even at the cost often of
litself maintained the right of freo-
_ men and women to be themselves
|one supreme tribunal in matters of
science.
his is not all. If our friend from
kotn, is an American born citizen
���knows that the founders of the
���rican Republic were not men who
���idered the will of the majority
uM always rule; but that that great
on was born, and owes its present
i, to the fact that a comparatively
111 body ol men in the beginning
_ for their inherent right to follow
{dictates of their consciences, against
night of the whole British Empire,
lut lo return to Mr. Kerr. What
may be said for some of his col-
pes, I believe that he, himself, is
st and sincere in his desire to help
banity. Can he honestly say that
���knows of any great movement in
world's progress brought about by
)hibitory enactment. Let us cut
for the time being, all talk of statics, which, after all, prove very
Be to the ordinary man, and read
|tory as educated men. Has not the
.ivard progress of mankind been a
ktinual struggle against oppressive
pslation, and have not the greatest
l-est names on the page of history
Era almost invariably those who in
ir own time, were considered lawmakers and dangerous characters.   It
fuld take too long to go into details,
is it necessary.    Mr.  Kerr is an
pctttd man, and as I said, apparently
honest one.    His very fairness in
Ibuit', contrasted with that of some
his colleagues, proves this, and he
doubt can recall numberless illus
trations of ths truth of what I have
said.
There is no doubt, decry it as we will,
that the speaker who said that the
church was losing its influence in the
West at least was right in what e said.
The mere fact of the chu4ch havng
admitted that it is powerless to cope
with the evil of intemperance without
calling for the assistance of the law, is
leading numbers of young men to ask
themselves if the money spent on
churches had not better be employed
in the h're of policemen and detectives.
Father Hardtman was right when he
said that the province of thc church
was to uplift humanity and make them
strong against temptation, and if it
has failed in this, it has failed in the
only thing which can justify its existence.
If the ultimate salvation of mankind
is to depend on the policeman, on what
ground can the church rest its claim to
recognition.
Let me give Mr. Kerr an illustration
of what a man can dn to uphold what
he thinks right without recourse to any
law.   -His predecessor, Mr. Kidd. was a
member of the executive of the Rifle
Association, when it was first formed,
and took a prominent part in its organization.   At a meeting of the executive,
at which he was not present, the question
of the most convenient day for holding
the weekly shoots was discussed.   Thc
general opinion was that Sunday would
be most convenient for the members, as
many of them could hardly get away
on any other day.   There is a Dominion
law prohibiting this, which has never
been   invoked   in    British   Columbia.
It   was  unanimously   decided   by  tht
executive  that   we   would   not  shooe
on Sunday, not mark you, Mr. Ker
because of this  Dominion law which
might be enforced,  but  because such
a course, would be repugnant to Mr.
Kidd.    It was the true Western spirit
of courtesy, which would not willingly
hurt  the susceptibilities of an honest
man,   but   which   would   have  fought
unanimously  against   any  attempt   at
coercion.
It is to be regretted, on many grounds,
that the leaders of this Scott Act fight
arc mostly young men. Not that this
is any reflection on them, but youth
is apt to be intolerant and to put the
mere fact of winning a fight in which
it is engaged, against thc moral effect
of that victory. And I tell Mr. Kerr,
now, that a victory on this question
would be the dearest victory of his
career. He spoke of the names of men
who were to occupy seats on the platform. Of course thc platform was not
large enough for them in last night's
hall, but the mere fact of these men
having allowed their names to be
printed as supporting this movement
against the Scott Act should show Mr.
Kerr, that on this question he is not
standing with the men who huve made
I'rince Rupert. And I ask him, as a
man who, as I said seems honest, will
he dare say that those men are not
moral men, and is it not possible that
he may be wrong and his opponent
right?
In conclusion I may say that I have
lived in Westomrland County, New
Brunswick, which is not very far from
Kings County, referred to by one of
Friday night's speakers, and if time
permitted, I could get allidavits to
prove that in that county at least, the
Scott Act has proved an absoulte farce.
I do not think Westmorland County is
any worse than Kings County and it
is quite probable that conditions are
tha same in both places.
I have not signed my name to this
because in a discussion of this nature,
personalities are not of so much interest
to the public as principals, but the
editor of this paper has my name and
has my permission to give it to Mr.
Kerr, if he asks for it. That he is
sufficient of a gentleman to make no
improper use of it in this present con
troversy, I am quite convinced.

CITIZENS LEAGUE
PRESIDENT:   C.D.Newton
SECRETARY :   G. W. Arnott
The Citizens' League, consisting of the leading business men of
Prince Rupert, begs to announce its programme for the Anti-Scott
Campaign.
The campaign will be a purely educational one, and those who are
opppsed to the objects of the League will be as welcome at the meetings
as those who favor these objects. No personalities will be indulged in
or permitted at any of the League meetings.
The following prominent citizens and business men have consented
to take seats on tne platform: ���Father Hartman, His Worship the
Mayor, Aldermen Mobley, Dr. Mclntyre, W. Lynch, T. D. Pattullo, J.
Hilditch, A. R. Barrow and Vernon Smith; Thomas Dunn, W. S. Benson,
P. I. Palmer, C. D. Newton, J. G. Scott, P. W. Scott, Dr. Quinlan, D.

Opinions on Prohibition
It surely is a circumstance worthy
of  serious consideration in  connection
with any proposals to substitute theoretical prohibition for thc practical and
strictly enforced  license  law  now  operating in this province in control of
the liquor  trade  that  Maine,  Kansas
and the other American states which
have given the suggested panacea for
all ills a full and  fair trial, are now-
abrogating   their   prohibitory   laws   as
quickly as they can, and returning to
high  license  and  strict  regulation,  as
the safest and surest plan for dealing
with the liquor trade.    It is also significant that Ontario, which Prohibitionists point to as afford'ng proof of the
success of the Scott Act in operation, is
now preparing to copy the salient feature
of British Columbia's high license law
as infinitely moro practical and more
workable.

INVASION OF PERSONAL LIBERTY

EVERYBODY COME TO THE MAJESTIC
(Cincinnati Enquirer'
In thc eariler, and shall we say better,
days of the republic, the first consideration that entered into every political
struggle, the goal of alt effort, and the
battle cry of democratic aspiration was
personal liberty. To it everything else
was to be subordinated, and except for
crime no invasion of it was to be tolerated.
Thc purpose of Government was enforcement of laws for thc security of life
and property and for the general defence
and beyond that it could not go.
Under that system men grew up and
the country was developed by individual
enterprise and capacity which always is
found where (iovernments do not undertake to do the work which belongs to
the people.   Little by little, however, we
have drifted into rank paternalism, and
there seems to bo no one left to protest
against it.     Thc General Government is
practically   operating   all   the   arable
land in the country as one big farm.   It
teaches the farmer what to do and shows
him how to do it.   It furnishes his seed,
analyses his soil and irrigates his land.
It tells people what they can eat and
drink, and by fixing the price determines
what they shall wear.    It looks after
every  one's  health,  and  all   parts  of
the country, no matter what the professed political views, if they want to
get anything done, instead of doing it
themselves, or trying to, come as suppliants   to   the   General   Government.
There does not seem to be left anywhere
a strict constructionist of the constitution
who is strict enough to resist a proffered
appropriation for any purpose whatever.
It is, however, personal liberty that we
had in mind as having suffered most
recently, and that in quarters where it
should have been least possible.   Liberty
has always been the boast of Democracy
and the home of Dcmocrary is the South.
The right of a man to eat, drink and we J*j
whatever he chose, so long as he did not
interfere with anyone else's rights, nor
disturb the peace, was fundamental.
Sumptuary laws were anathema. Now,
springing up since the fanatical wave
of prohibition which has lately swept
over the South, we find laws in derogation of personal liberty, and exercising
a degree of tryannical government which
can hardly be equalled under any autocracy. In Alabama the law forbids all j
citizens to have wines or 1-quors in their
own homes, and authorizes the invasion I
of the home by search warrants to
discover them. In Mobile lately, five
Deputy Sheriffs entered the house of a
Mr. Nelson and searched it from top to
bottom. In the word s of Mrs. Nelson:
"The Deputies turned our beds upside
down, ransacked bureau drawers, writing
j desks, discboards, etc. Finally they |
went into the rooms of my daughters
tad demanded that the trunks be'
opened. My husband told them they
would have to break them open. I
finally unlocked the trunks and the
girls had to take their clothing out of
the trunks with the Deputies standing'
I over them. The only liquor found was
��� half-pint bottle in a sideboard drawer.
The Deputies carried that away with
them." Elsewhere in the state a man
was refused permission to have any
wine at thc wedding of his daughter.
Was there ever a grosser outrage?   If
liberty is to be destroyed und tryunny
to sit in the high places of the land,
what difference does it make whether
it is concentrated in one man or is
many-headed?
The single tyrant is the more likely
of the two to pay some little regard to
reason and justice. What emphasizes
the folly of such legislation and makes
it the more deplorable is lhat it is practically certain to be evaded in a little
while, and ultimately to bring a reaction
to worse conditions than those that
were made the excuse for the law.

"Are you fond of sports, Mrs. Blank?"
Mrs. Blank smiled. Her sad eyes
twinkled a moment. Then she sighed
and answered:
"Well, I suppose I ought to be, I
married one."
"This is awkward. I flirted with a
young man at the seashore, and we
both pretended to be rich. Now I find
he lives in our city."
"But you needn't see him if you
don't want to."
"I can't well get out of it. It seems
he collects the payments on our piano."
If you would like to see a clock that
is 261 years old you will see it at Wark's
Jewelry Store.
