Aid. Mobley Says Bowser Act Will be
Made Active
Here.
He Mas llvci-y Faith iii the License
Statute Opposed to the
Scott  Act
On Saturday evening there was a
crowded gathering in .Mclntyre Hall
at the meeting held in opposition to
the Scott Act. The speakers for the
evening were Mr. Blakemore, Thos.
Dunn and Dr. Clayton, who all dealt
with different phases of the question. Dr. Mclntyre presided and in
opening the meeting referred to the
new role he appeared in as referee
from that of the evening before. He
laid stress upon the pleasure it gave
him to have both parties represented
and all on such good terms.
Thomas Dunn, the first speaker,
said he had been disappointed the
night before as he came to hear some
thing new in favor of the Scott Act.
He had expected to hear Dr. Spencer j
but although Dr. Spencer was present and had been invited to speak, he
had not the common courtesy to accept it.
Dr Spencer the man who more
than anyone else perhaps was responsible for this vote being brought
on, should appear and state his reasons for it. It was a sign of weakness. Residents of this country did
not require men from Fargo and
Grand Forks to come here to tell
them what they should do.
The Scott Act was rotten to the
core. Why should the vote be taken
on such n list. Tlic< vote was brought
on on a petition signed by only 125
people,  representing  one-quarter of
wished a ruling on  the point from
the chairman.
Dr. Mclntyre did not think that
Dr. Clayton had transgressed the
general rules of debate. His time
was nearly up, however.
Dr. Clayton, proceeding, said that
it seemed to him there was a determined attempt that this campaign
was to be run by newcomers. He did
not know the person who objected
but he bore all the ear-marks of "a
tenderfoot." He had no quarrel with
the minister taking the platform,
but he did object to any one taking
the stand that he had a heaven born
right to dictate as to how people
should vote.
Mr. Blakemore dealt with the provincial liquor act. The act applied
to the whole province. The first part
of It did not apply to incorporated
parts but the provisions of it could
all be made applicable to the municipalities if these so desired. The act
wasp repared by strong temperance
men and found commendation not
only in the province but elsewhere.
It had had the commendation of Dr.
Spencer. No hotel license in any
part could  be granted  unless there

Prince   Rupert   Choral   Society   Will
Put on Entertainment
On Thursday evening the Prince
Rupert Choral Society will give its
first concert, the proceeds to be devoted towards the hospital fund. The
society which is under the presidency
of liis-. Worship the Mayor, with Wil-
'.. Ham Manson, M.P.P., Judge Young,
Bishop Du Vernet,'and .Major Gibson
as vice presidents, is doing much to
cultivate a love of high class music
in Ihe communitq. There are about
35 members of the society and during  the   three  months  since  it   was
those entitled to vote     The vote was i organizea   very   frequent   rehearsals
to be taken on a list  in  which but | have be£m hel(J B0 tltat tne ooncert on
about GOO votes would be cast. Under
this 30} votes would decide the matter. If tho municipal list of about
2,100 wore used It would not be so
bad.
Why did Dr. Spencer and Mr. Farls
not begin at home? Why did they
not try it in Victoria and Vancouver?
You had to have a strong majority
if tl;e act w:'s to be enforced. How
was an act to bo enforced on a vote
of 301 in a population of 5,000?
There was a good license law. All
It required wns the police commissioners nnd the police to enforce it.
If (hoy did not do It, new ones would
be elected. He knew one man who
sold 5,000 barrels of liquor to blind
pigs. The laws could be enforced.
'If he were .a police commissioner
these license holders would disobey
the law bul once and t.hej would lose
their licenses. In Vancouver they
were enforcing the law. They licensed not only the houses but the bartenders must be licensed also. If I
these laws were enforced they would
have no need for the Scot! Act or any
prohibitory law.
Dr. Clayton said he did not come
as one who espoused the cause of the
liquor traffic as conducted in Prince
Rupert today. He was not a total
abstainer. He was a temperance
man. He was opposed to the Canada Temperance Act that was trying
to be foisted upon the people. He
felt that this question had been
wrongly introduced. He did not. believe they had any need to go outside
of Prince Rupert to get those who
should deal with this subject. This
applied to Mr. Blakemore as well as
Dr. Spencer. He could understand
how Mr. Blakemore was brought In
after It was found Dr. Spencer was
coming.
He believed that the people
thought the present liquor licensj
law a good one, but It needed enforcement. Other parts of the province were getting along very well nn.
der the present act without the introduction of the Scott Act. He was
opposed to the present existing state
of things In Prince Rupert. They
were going to exact from the next
council that the law was enforced to
the letter.
He could not understand why Dr.
Mclntyre, a man of standing In the
city, who had Invested here, should
be criticised for what he said by Rev.
Mr. Kerr. The latter had only been
here two months and he could not
see that It was very becoming to
criticise a resident who had been ln
the city as long as Dr. Mclntyre.
Mr. Cowper, managing editor of
the Optimist, rose to a point of order
and stated that when he came to the
meeting he understood that no personalities should be Indulged in.   He
         e concert on
Thursday evening should be a veritable treat.
The society was fortunate in having for its conductor .1. E. Davey of
ibis city, who has a thorough training in music. He is a pupil of Miss
Leach, A.R.A.F., of Nottingham,
nnd of William Foxon, A.R.A.F., of
Sheffield. After a wide experience
in the old land, where he conducted
cliornses, Mr. Davey lias had experience as a leader of choruses in various parts of British Columbia, and as
a teacher. Miss Froud, A.L.C.M.,
-who lias a very wide reputation as a
pianist, is the accompanist and will
lake a prominent part in-the programme.
The proceeds of this first, concerl
are to be to a very laudable fund, !
that in aid of the local hospital. The
concert has, therefore, strong demands upon the public both from its
merit and on account of the direction
in which the funds are to be applied.
Later the society will give concerts to assist, in the work of the
organization. At present the hall of
the Anglican church has been given
Ihem for practices, but It will be
necessary to secure a piano and a
permanent place for practice.
On Thursday evening the following will take part in the entertainment: Miss Holtby, soprano; J. E.
Davey, tenor; W. H. Melliar, baritone; male voice quartette consisting
of Messrs. Fletcher, Scott, Melliar
and Frond; solo piano, Miss Froud,
A.L.C.M.; selection, Gray's Orchestra, and elocutionist, Mr. Ellis.
The Empress theatre should be
crowded on the occasion.

PACIFIC SHIPPING
Speaking at Vancouver of the possibilities of trade on the Pacific coast,
D. D. Mann of the Canadian Northern, gave expression to his views on
the subject of freight which has an
important bearing upon Prince Rupert's future. He was not speaking
of this port, but of Port Mann, but
the words he used with respect to
tnat port apply even more forcibly
to this harbor.   He said:
"With the completion of the Panama Canal It seems to me that a considerable portion of the export grain
fsom the prairies will seek an outlet
by way of the Pacific Coast. It may
not be generally known that Port
Mann is nearer to every corner of Alberta than Is Port Arthur, the great
wheat shipping port at the head of
the Great Lakes."
The same Is true of Prince Rupert
and with the advantages which the
G T.P. is to possess In point of equipment and In gradients, the harbor
at this point should become indeed a
busy place.
At the council meeting last evening tenders were opened for the construction of the Ninth avenue roadway with the necessary excavation in
connection with it. These were referred to the streets committee for
report.
ihe tenders received were as follows:—

Two meetings were held last evening in connection with the Scott Act
campaign. One was held under the
auspices of the opponents of the act
in the Empress theatre. A second
meeting was in support of the Scott
Act and was held in the Majestic theatre.    Both places were crowded.
In the Empress theatre W. S. Benson presided, to. Blakemore dealt
with the points raised by Dr. Spencer
and also with some other aspects of
the question dealing with them in an
able way. A systematic attempt al
confusing the speakers seemed to be
attempted from the. audience and a
number of questions were asked. Air.
Blakemore dealt with these as they
came up and in a happy way answered all  the questions.
The other speakers were Dr.  Mclntyre and Mr. Morrisey, who scored 1
many points.
At the Majestic theatre Dr. Kergin presided, while short speeches
were delivered by Rev. F. to. Kerr,
Mr. Farls, A. to. McLean, W, R. Mor-
ison and Rev, Dr. 'McLeod.
All the speakers were given a very
attenthe hearing and were all
strongly favorable to the Scott Acl
passing.

The first samples of copper ore

the face of the 1,40,0-foot tunnel on
the Red Cliffe lias reached Stewarl
and a considerable Quantity is being
assayed. "When I lefl tiie mine we
bad four feel of chalcopyrite in the
lace of the tunnel and it showed
every Indication of widening out,"
said Superintendent E. I!. Webster
to the Portland Canal Miner. "We
havt been traversing through a mineralized zone a distance of ISO feet,
liming first encountered iron pyrite
U'211 feet In. In places we rut
through stringers of copper, but now
we have a solid face of ore which I
firmly believe is a continuation of the
same ore body disclosed in the upper
workings." Asked regarding the proposed upraise to connect with the Xo.
1 tunnel, he said that a continuation
of the main tunnel to develop the
new find would be flrst undertaken,
but eventually the raise would be
made. There are now 4 5 men on the
property.
The samples exhibited by Mr. Webster show a very heavy mineralization of coper, both of solid chalcopyrite and a very line grained copper
pyrite mixed with iron pyrite. The
ore closely resembles that taken out
in the upper workings where the
values ran some $lu In gold and copper 111 the ton, rhere being very little

"I also believe that Local Option will get a strong vote from

PRINCE RUPBJRT JOTJRNA1.
ft   i$
BOTH SIDES HEARD
Scott Act Discussed From Various Points
of View by Opposing
Factions.
IN THE COUNTY COURT OF ATLIN
HOLDEN AT PRINCE RUPERT
Interesting Meeting Held in Mclntyre
Hall    on    Friday
Evening
On Friday evening ln Mclntyre's
Hall, the first meeting of the two
opposing sections in the Scott Act
campaign took place. The meeting
was called by the opponents of the
act, who invited the other side to
be present, Mr. Parrls of Vancouver,
and Rev. Mr. Kerr, of the Presbyter-
Ian church, appeared as speakers in
favor of the Scott Act, and with Dr.
Mclntyre and W. Blakemore representing the opponents of the Scott
Act, made up the speaking talent. Before the meeting closed, however, the
unexpected developed, and Father
Hartman and Rev. Mr. McLeod were
heard on the subject of the Scott
Act.
A. Carss presided. The hall was
crowded to the doors, many not gaining admission.
Mr. Faris thought it would be a
great advertisement for Prince Rupert to decide to close the bars. The
liquor question had staggered many
a man—who did not drink it. He
took exception to the argument of
Mr. Blakemore the evening before
when he advocated the bar to train
up the boys In self control. If the
logical end was followed the bars
would be wiped out for all would
refuse to drink. They should expedite the work and wipe out the
bar on Wednesday.
From an economic standpoint he
argued that the non-drinking man
was the better off. The same rule
applied to the community. He gave
instances from his experience as to
the result of prohibition. Grand
stood as monuments as to the advantages of a prohibitory law, he
said. It was not true that you had
to have bars to have good hotels.
Touching on the question of the
enforcement of the law, the speaker
said that in the Cnnad.i Temperance
Act they had a law that was easily
enforced. In-North Dakoti they had
a similar act and it was well carried
out. An enforcement commissioner
was needed to do il 'le couid be
appointed here and couid enforce the
law. Why could they not enforce a
law that the people demanded? If
the people demanded the enforcement of the act it could be enforced.
The brewers' association of Cincinnati stated that in North Dakota the
sale of liquor fell off seventy pel
cent.
Dr. Mclntyre pleaded that he was
net a debater. He had met quite
a few North Dakota people in Palo
Alto. He instanced a ease of a man
coming to California to live because
lie found thai for business reasons he
couid not live in North Dakota. Palo
Alto was a dry town. Berkley was
not a dry town. Palo Alio, the home
of Stanford university, j i 1 a delightful cllniiite, bi* it sro-i still. Berkley went ahead. Hi had had experience in a proposition to estahilsii
a hotel in Pai i A'' i I' had to be
cancelled as it w-.i' fo.mil that the
venture would 33 a failure if liquor
could  not be sei  -e
He had live,-1 under th.! Scott Aft.
It was not worii.'i "•?. L s'ally be tied
been elected :"', ikl:-ri ia ol tl e city.
A liquor bylaw had been passed but
was not perfect. It was being amended and be felt the conditions could
be Improved. If the temperance people would lend the same support to
trying to see that the license law was
carried out, results would be much
better. Was it fair to condemn the
license law before a chance had been
given to try it? Had those who
wanted the Scott Act been the true
friends of temperance they would
have asked to aid In the enforcement
of the act.
Referring to the letter of Dr.
Spencer he denied that he ever did
anything to hurt a minister. He had
the deepest regard for religion, 'tnere
are many temperance men who believed in a license law rather than
prohibition.
Dr. Mclntyre said he had lived for
ten years under the Scott Act. A
prominent stipendiary matistrate
wrote that drinking had not diminished at the same rate as the population. He felt that for Prince Rupert it would be a disaster to introduce it.
The population of the maritime
provinces was falling off. Did they
want the Scott Act Introduced here?
He would advise every young man
to leave liquor alone. It did no good.
He advised against the Scott Act as
It would mean blind pigs, gambling

Till',   VOTE   TOMORROW
Tomorrow the electors of Prince
Rupert will decide the question of
whether they will for the next three
years try the experiment of regulating the liquor traffic under the Canada Temperance Act, commonly
known as the Scott Act, or whether
they will proceed to regulate it under
the Provincial Liquor Act, which, according to amendments to the city
bylaw now being put through, the
city council will bring the more
stringent provisions of the Bowser
Act into effect locally. During the
past week or two the public has had
first class opportunities to become
informed on various aspects of the
drink question. The question of deciding how Prince Rupert shall regulate the business is one for the electors now to decide. The electorate
is divided and men of good judgment
are taking very opposite views of the
situation. It is the boast of our
country that every man is entitled to
his own opinion, and we deprecate
any attempt to forbid each elector
acting according to his best individual judgment.
The Journal early in the campaign
felt that on a question of such far
reaching consequences to the city, it
should do what it could according
to its light to assist the public in
reaching the best decision on the
matter. We believe the defeat of the
Scott Act is the wisest course for the
city.
The argument is being used in the
present campaign that in the very
early days of this city liquor was
kept out effectively and that therefore it can be done again. The argument is not a fair one, we think. In
thei early days when but a few people
were here and when the number of
steamers calling was more limited
than, al present, the situation was
very much easier to control. We do
not want to take away any credit
that belonged to Mr. Vickers as an
efficient police officer, but his task
was somewhat easier, it is fair to say,
than that which falls to the authorities today should they be required to
keep liquor out under the provisions
Oi the Scott Act. Anyone upon reflection will readily understand that.
It is true, also, that the Bowser
Act has never been given a test here.
Through the mistake of someone the
Act was not adapted to the city as it
could have been when the liquor bylaw of the city was prepared. The
Liquor Act of this province recognizes the right of each municipality
to a very wide discretion in the conduct of its own affairs, and it is left
to the cities to say whether it wants
as stringent regulation with respect
fo liquor as tho unincorporated parts.
The new bylaw now before the council will call for an observance of
rules that should take away many
of the abuses of the liquor traffic as
they now exist.
Under the conditions and taking
into account the prevailing sentiment
on the Pacific Coast, we do not believe it would be In the Interests of
the development of a true temperance sentiment to bring the Scott Act
into force here.
Unless the manufacture of liquor
is prohibited the matter of finding
i satisfactory method of regulating
it is a very difficult one indeed. Semi,
prohibitory measures of an exceedingly local character have nol been
■i marked success. This would be
■ill the more true in a community like
■•h:ii found in Prince Rupert where
the sentiment is nol very strong
ttgalnsl    file   use   of   liquor.
We do not advocate what is known
i will,, open city, in spite of the
arguments sometimes heard that
that is the only way lo have a new
city prosperous, we do not believe it.
We believe the day lias passed for
unrestrained drunkenness and for
that very reason we waul lo see the
new liquor law strictly enforced so
thai while those who may see no
harm in the moderate use of liquor
may have an opportunity to so use ii.
At tiie same time that law provides
very effective means of dealing with
the abuses of the traffic. From Ihe
standpoint of those who favor prohibition tiie Bowser Act does not offer
all thai they would want. The same
Is true of the Scott Act. On paper
the latter Act may look more In line
with their view. In practice we believe It would be disappointing. Men
who would not think of attempting
to violate an ordinary statute would
feel no compunctions about attempting to violate a law against the use
if liquor. It is useless to argue that
;t should not be so. Conditions
must be faced as they are. Prince
Hupert now boasts a considerable
population. It is a very cosmopoli-
'an  people who have pitched  their
enls here. There will be a large influx of population in the next few
years and many will be transients.
To deal witli such a population will
:ax the police authorities to the fullest. It will be a population that will
make if an easy matter for such a
law as the Scott Act to be rather
0] fiily violated. The police authorities  would require  to enlist the co-
,K-ration of men who would be obnoxious to them and to the decent
element In Prince Rupert to effect
convictions. If the law was not to
be a dead letter a continuous campaign with objectionable types of de-
lectives and with features connected
with the courls in the way of perjury
and kindred offences constantly coming before the public which would
not be conducive to settled conditions
nor calculated to promote the best
type of public opinion.
Under all the circumstances we
believe the defeat of the Scott Act
would be in the best public interest
at this time.
 o	
A CORRECTION
In the last issue of The Journal in
an editorial referring to the visit of
D'Arcy Tate, the solicitor of the G.
T. P., we stated that Mr. Tate was
coming on the invitation of the city
council. When we wrote it we were
under the impression that that was
the situation. Mayor Stork has informed us that we were incorrect in
that statement and that Mr. Tate was
not invited by the council. We do
not wish to wilfully misrepresent any
one, and accordingly we take the first
opportunity to put the position in its
true light.
At the same time His Worship has
shown us a message dated December
1st in which the information is given
him that Mr. Tate is coming. In
view of the fact that this information
was so given the point which we
raised against the attempt to stir up
feeling stands in the same light as
it did even though an invitation
might not have ben sent Mr. Tate to
come.
 o	
BOTH SIDES HEARD
(Continued from Page Three)
dens, etc. Capitalists avoided a dry
town. It seemed strange but it was
true.
Rev. W. F. Kerr said he had never
heard of the city of Polly Wolly before. (Laughter.) Dr. Mclntyre had
discovered that the sweep of prohibition and local option in the United
States had been followed by an increase in crime. It seemed that Dr.
Mclntyre had been inspired. He advised that Dr. Mclntyre be sent down
through the United States to reveal
what a fraud was being worked upon
them. Quoting from Dr. Mclntyre's
writing he pointed to the fact that he
admitted that sobriety was increasing
but he ascribed it to social and business reasons. Touching on the point
that people were leaving the east
the speaker received loud applause
by asking in a genial way "Now
Doctor, why did you leave it?"
The speaker said that he had come
to regard the Scott Act as one of the
best prohibitory measures he had
seen. The east was going strongly
temperance. The Scott Act was not
an extreme measure. It was a very
temperate one. The law made drinking hard. The open har with its allurements was the great difficulty.
If this law Is asked for by the people the municipality will have to enforce It. If there was a desire by the
People for such a law why should the
municipal representatives not enforce
il?
For an alderman to stand up and
ask iin- council in enforce tho license
law was a disgrace.
Aid. Mclntyre said he did not say
this, lie said they should come and
'Her their moral support,
Mr. Kerr apologized for haiing
misinterpreted this.
Nexl year's council would not mater so much, because half of the year
would bo under license. They would
just have half a year to test it.
There could never be in the city
a blind pig regime. Mr. Bennett, the
[■resilient of tiie league, said he wish-
• il he could have every member
iwear not to erst as long as a blind
nig exlster in the city.
He argued against the claim that
>as put up that bars should exist in
order to strengthen manhood, There
• ere times when men could not resist these temptations and the open
bar should be removed.
W. Blakemore in taking up the ar-
■,omenta made by the previous speak
ers, said that capital was afraid of
dry cities, and in Prince Rupert investors had suspended the closing of
deals until it was assured that the
Scott Act would not be carried. The
premiers of the maritime provinces
were going to Ottawa to endeavor to
get increased financial aid and to allow the continuance of the great
bounties to the iron industries. While
he did not contend that the Scott Act
was not responsible for this falling
off of business, but it was fair to say
il had not prevented it.
If the Scott Act carried any one
wishing a drink would not find it
possible to go to an open bar, but
to a closed bar which was just as
well known and more dangerous.
The conditions in an old established city like Fargo were not the same
as in Prince Rupert. What applied to
Fargo would not apply to Prince Rupert.
If the Scott Act. can be enforced it
never has been enforced. It said little
for the intelligence of the people of
the maritime provinces and of Ontario, and little for the energy of the
temperance people of these provinces
if the act can be enforced. The act
was so unfair in some of its provisions that he believed that the council of the city would not take the
steps to enforce it.
He could respect a community for
wanting a local option law under certain conditions, but the Scott Act was
in no wise such a law.
Would there be such a change In
conditions or in sentiment from what
there was a few months before as to
prevent the opening of blind pigs
again? The cosmopolitan population, the fact that It was a seaport,
made it very difficult to carry out
such a law as the Scott Act here.
Why did the Local Option League
not swear not to rest in their beds
until the license law was enforced as
was suggested they would do with
respect to the Scott Act.
The churches, concluded the
speaker, were losing their grip upon
the masses largely because they were
losing the methods of their forefathers in advocating prohibitory
methods rather than the Inculcating
of principles of correct living.
Upon Mr. Blakemore resuming his
seat amid applause, Father Hartman
of the Roman Catholic church rose in
his place to speak. He was called
to the platform. He said as a Catholic priest he stood against the Scott
Act. As a Catholic priest and a man
he stood for temperance. What was
wanted were temperance men. Taking issue with Mr. Kerr upfin the
point on which the latter was
dwelling when he closed his speech.
Mr. Kerr explained that he had not
had time to fully present his views
on that point.
Father Hartman said he felt sure
tbat Mr. Kerr would stand by the old
principle, a man should stand in spite
of temptation. The right, use of liquor was all right, the abuse of it
was all wrong. "Let us oe fair," he
said, "and do not impose laws upon
those who think they are right." To
a man who could not overcome temptation, he always said never touch
liquor.
Education was what was needed.
They wanted men to be able to stop
drinking when they had enough. All
that was asked was the principle of
British fair play.
Rev. Mr. McLeod, of the Baptist
church, rising to speak, was called
to the platform. He said he stood
for British fairplay as well as any
one. He had been reared under the
Scott Act In the maritime provinces.
There was no-better country than
the maritime provinces. Men left
there just for the same reasons as
they went from any country.
Referring to what Father Hartman had said, Mr. McLeod told of
his experience with other Catholic
priests who advocated that the people of that church should do just
as they liked on such a question.
Amidst considerable uproar Father
Hartman returned to the platform
and a dispute arose as to how the
meeting should proceed. Finally Mr.
McLeod said he would withdraw
from the platform and lean. Father
Hartman to explain.
The latter said he did not say thai
the Catholic people should vote
against the Scott Act. lie gave his
own views and then left every Roman Catholic to decide for himself
how he would vole. (Applause.)
The meeting closed with the singing of God Save the King.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
WILL ENFORCE LAW
tContinued from Page One)
were 1,000 people of the Caucasion
race. This was in line with the sentiment of the province which was in
favor of a "White British Columbia."
After outlining some of the main
points of the law the speaker said it
was about as good a one as could be
obtained. There had been, some
doubts as to whether the act could
be enforced. Mr. Blakemore then
proceeded to show that the act had
been enforced. He referred to the,
list of licenses cancelled or refused.
There were sventy-four of these. The
cause In many Instances was "not in
the public Interest." Was it not reasonable to suppose that the present
liquor act could be enforced here to
the satisfaction of the most exacting
If it. could be enforced elsewhere?
If the supporters of the Scott Act
were not going to sleep until the law
were enforced should the act pass,
why should they not show the same
zeal in enforcing the license act. It
was the duty of every Britisher to see
that law was enforced. If the license law after four months trial did
enforced however, and It would soon
be tested.
The meeting closed with the singing of God Save the King.

I see there's a new baby hippopotamus at the z-oo. What are you laugh
ing at, Johnnie?

as he looks): I was jus' laughin' to

"Labor" is Not for Prohibition
Dr. Spencer claimed on Sunday that Labor the world
over Is in favor of Prohibition. A referendum taken
in New South Wales quite recently and reported by
Reuter's Agency, gave the following results:—
Constituencies
In favor of the continuance of the present licenses    75
In favor of reduction        15
In favor of Prohibition NONE
The full significance of this result becomes apparent when it is remembered that New South Wales is
governed officially by the Labor Party, which is stronger and more dominant there than in any country in
the world.
A delegation of Labor men waited on Mr. Blakemore at the Citizens' League rooms this morning,
asking him to make it clear tonight that in Prince Rupert there Is no "organized" vote on the Scott Act
among Union men. Some are for and possibly some
against, but in no sense is the statement of Dr. Spencer correct that "Labor" is in favor of Prohibition in
any form.
not succeed as might have been expected, was It reasonable to suppose
it could not be enforced.
There were honest differences of
opinion on this subject. Were the
people of Prince Rupert prepared to
saddle the city with an act with a
record like the Scott Act for three
years? This was something which
each citizen would have to decide
for himself.
The meetilug being thrown open to
any who might wish to speak to do
so, several availed themselves of the
opportunity.
" One speaker stated that his home
had been broken up by the bar. The
free lunch restaurant and other features of the Old Country were alluded to and the evil effects attacked.
There were thousands of young
men who go into a bar that would not
go into blind pigs, he said.
A. Phllllpson advocated an anti-
treating league in the city as a means
of overcoming the evils of the drink
system.   He was a tetotaller himself.
He did not advocate barrooms but
barrooms were a long way ahead of
the blind pigs. The day was coming
when drink must pass. He felt the
day was coming when they were sure
to have home rule for Ireland,
done away with.
Liquor was going to come in, he
said, and it would be better to have
it sold In properly licensed places
(laughter); women suffragettes given the vole, and the liquor traffic
than In blind pigs.
Aid. Frank Mobley said there bad
been a lot of criticism with respect
in the enforcement of the law. The
law had noi been enforced as he
would have liked to have Been it. The
Bowser Act was not applicable to
Prince Rupert. As soon as it was
found that 11 was not applicable,
steps were taken to make it applicable. This was now being done and
the law would be enforced.
He was opposed to the Scott Act.
He would not take an active part
in this campaign as he was an opponent of the law. If the Scott Act carried he would use his best efforts to
enforce it. If it were not he would
endeavor to have the Bowser Act
enforced.
With respect to the way in which
the liquor business was not being
carried out, he did not blame the
public for kicking. He kicked himself. If he thought the law could not
be enforced he would vote for the
Scott Act.    He believed  it could be

FAVOR  SCOTT ACT
Dr. Spencer and other Speakers Advocate
Voting for the
Measure.
Crowded   Meeting   Held   in the Empress Theatre on Sunday
Night
The meeting held in the Empress
theatre on Sunday evening by those
in favor of the Scott Act was well
attended. The place was crowded
to the doors.
Early in the proceedings Rev. Mr.
Kerr, from the body of the meeting,
ticked if any opposition speakers
would lie allowed to speak. lie suggested that as it was Sunday evening
nothing of a controversial nature
should be Introduced. He thoughl 11
would be unwise lo have any opponents of the Scott Act speak at the
meeting. The chairman agreed that
this would be the course, more especially in view of the fact that the
meeting on Monday evening was to
be open. After Dr. Spencer concluded his remarks, Mr. Blakemore, from
the audience, rose and addressing
the chair, wished to know if he was
to be allowed to speak. A negative
answer being given, lie wished to
know if it were fair that while Dr.
Spencer was given a chance to traverse all the ground that had been
opened up by liim (Mr. Blakemore)
at previous meetings, he should not
be allowed to answer him. He did
not wish a controversial meeting on
Sunday evening.
The chairman said he was not going to allow Mr. Blakemore to make
a speech, and amldsl some little confusion that prevailed, called for tbe
singing of God Save Hie King, which
brought the meeting to a close.
The meeting was presided over by
Aid. Naden, and a number of clergy
and supporters of the Scott Act occupied places on the platform. Mr.
Naden, in his opening remarks, said
he wished to say a word or two on
the financial bogey in connection
with this question. How did Prince
Rupert get along without the bar In
the early days? When he came here
he was somewhat surprised to find
John Houston advocating an no-
ltcense town. John Houston said he
was doing it because of the advantages of a no-lieense town. The
speaker said that he lived in Prince
Rupert as a no-license town before
the days of the blind pigs. The greatest real estate sale ever held had
been when property in a nn license
town—Prince Rupert—was put up
for sale. The real estate values continued lo increase. Today there were
more men employed than any time
before in its history. Few would
say that prosperity had followed very
markedly with the giving of licenses.
C. to. Peck denied that only lean
fanatics were in favor of the Scott
Act. lie was not a lean fanatic,
neither was he a fal fanatic. He refused to be bound to the belief that
the prosperity of this city was bound
up with the liquor traffic. He did
his best to allow the people to have
a say in the mater of whether they
should have licenses or not when he
supported a candidate for mayro of
the city that incorporated as a plank
of his platform that a vote should be
taken to decide that question.
The speaker believed that the people of this city should take a stand
as they saw fit on that subject. He
did not believe that it was a cardinal
sin to take a drink. He believed in
restricting the .;ale of liquor ns much
as possible. The people of the city
did not come here to live on the profits of the liquor traffice.
Winn Prince Rupert had "Billy
Vickers and one constable to help
liim they had a dry town," and the
lu-st town it bad ever been..
Rev, Mr. lies Barres referred to
Nova Scotia with which province his
family had been Identified for 140
years.    He said Nova Scotia w>as not
in  any  way com rclally  dead.     He
had Investments there and these had
increased their dividends, There was
HO pall hanging over Nova Scotia. He
fell some one had insulted his family
«hen he heard thai statement made
on Friday ntghl thai Nova Scotia after having years of the Scotl Act had
a pall hanging over it commercial]}.
Dr, Spencer said lie could not feel
thai lie was an outsider in Prince Rupert. He belonged to tiie whole
province as the organizer of the local
option league. The Bpeaker denied
thai he ever said thai Chilliwack was
chosen as a place to lest the Act because It was the best city in the
province, and Prince Rupert because
it, was the worst. It bad been intended to have the vote taken In Prince
Ruperl before any licenses were
granted. He looked upon Prince Rupert as one of the best cities nn the
continent.    The  speaker traced  tiie
history of the local option vote and
said he believed they had men in the
government, men in the legislature,
who felt that they should have local
option, and it was coming.
He denied that he ever thanked
tiie Premier for giving a plebiscite.
The Local Option League had nothing to do with the plebiscite. Some
members of that league never wanted
to take part in it. The decision was
reached to take part in it.
When a deputation complained to
tiie Premier that they had not been
consulted on the plebiscite vote Mr.
McBride had said: "The Government
does not consult persons outside, and
therefore it did not consult you."
The Premier was probably right on
that, He did thank Mr. Bowser for
the new liquor act. He would do it
again for a still better act. The
leagues were there to help the attorney-general lo carry out Hint law
as far as it  was felt it was good.
On tiie plebiscite a majority of
3,700 was gained, They fell short
500 of the demands of the government. He would not say what he
thoughl of that demand at this time.
The work he was in was not Conservative nor Liberal. A convention of
the league decided then to ask that
the Dominion Government should
adapt the Canadian Temperance Act
to  British  Columbia.

THE  PRINCE  RUPERT  JOURNAL
FAVOR SCOTT ACT
(Continued from Page Six)
speaker said that Prince Rupert had
had far greater investments before
licenses were granted than since
there were licenses.
Licensed bars did not control the
Investments here. There was no
more necessity for blind pigs than
bars. Law enforcement was what the
cities of Canada wa ited more than
anything else.
Last week In aVncouver sixteen
blind-pig men were fined and they
have licenses there.
Dr. Spencer argued that in Kansas
the piohibltory law had been a decided benefit. It was true 400 places
were emptied after the law passed,
but these were saloons, brothels,
gambling places and drinking clubs.
On the question of the enforcement
of the act, Dr. Spencer said that In
the early days the Scott Act was difficult to enforce. But amendments
had been made and it was now enforced. Liquor could only be Imported for medical purposes, sacramental purposes, manufacturing purposes and private use.
As to the unfairness alleged that a
vote of perhaps 301 might decide
tbat the Scott Act should be ln force,
the speaker suggested that "the boot
be put on the other foot," and asked
if it would be fair that 301 should
say that the license system should
not be wiped out.
He pleaded that no one had a
right to put a temptation in the way
of any one else.
Prince Edward Island had a population of 103,000. There never were
more there. There was not room for
more. Prohibitory law had not depopulated It.
After Mr. Blakemore made his request to be heard, the meeting broke
up with the singing of God Save the
King.
Marvelous Dividend Achievements
The Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York paid in dividends
in 1909 the sum of $11,005,914.96,
an amount without precedent in this
country or In any other. The company has also apportioned for payment of dividends in 1910 the enormous sum of $12,401,752.11, an
amount greater by nearly two millions than any other company has
ever paid In a single year. Indeed,
of 157 companies doing business in
the United States, only 12, including
industrial, had, up to aJnuary 1st,
1909, paid during their entire existence as large a total in dividends as
the sum apportioned by The Mutual
Life for 1910.
"I think I have discovered a system to beat the bookies," remarked
Mr. Ounson, looking over the top of
the morning poper.
"What you need just now is a system to beat the carpets," retorted
Mrs. Gunson, decidedly.
