W. E. Morrison. Editor and Proprietor
SEPT.  1, 1916.
SIR  CHARLES HIBBERT
TUPPER.
Either Sir Charles Hibbert
Tupper has deteriorated as a
speaker since he delivered
his famous speeches on the
mal-administration of the
Yukon in 1899 or his mind is
befogged and obsessed with
his personal dislike of Sir
Richard McBride and P m-
ier Bowser.
In 1899 Sir Charles was
definite, clear, trenchant and
forceful. In 1916 he is turgid
and verbose, and sometimes,
almost pointless.
In 1899 he revealed with
startling emphasis the innermost details of the grafting
operations of the Wade-
Walsh-Fawcett gang of freebooters in the Yukon. In
1916 he confines himself to
generalities which do not
glitter, which by having been
repealed too often without
corroboration have lost their
point and even the flavor of
the Tupper style of oratory.
He makes sweeping charges
against the Bowser and McBride governments, but he
does not bring to the proof a
single jot of evidence. He
accuses them of varied and
manifold crimes, but he does
not refer to a single case in
point. As a lawyer of eminence Sir Charles should try
to make his charges more
convincing by giving particulars. In a law suit he
could be commanded by the
court to give particulars, failing which his action would
be dismissed. Now, why
shouldn't Sir Charles produce
the particulars in his charges
against the government just
as he produced them with
such damning wealth of detail, the particulars in his
charges against F. C. Wade
in 1899.
Surely the country and the
great party to which he
claims to owe allegiance have
a right to expect something
betier from a Tupper than
the disgruntled wailings of a
man who has quarrelled on
personal grounds with his
party leaders in this province.
Sir Charles has not enhanced
his reputation by his attitude
to his leaders in British Columbia. On the contrary he
has laid himself open to the
charge, which many Conservatives believe, that he wanted to be the whole thing in
the party himself and because
the leaders did not kow-tow
to him, he broke with them.
This is the net result to Sir
Charles himself, of his course.
-J.P.'s Weekly.
boo for the Dominion House
in the next election, and that
is one of the reasons why he
has come over. Just whether he will continue his representation in the British parliament he has not yet decided, but he has made up his
mind for the Dominion, he
declared.
Speaking about the taking
of the votes of soldiers in
England. Mr. Martin has
this to say of Sir Richard
McBride : "Sir Richard, and
let me say that I want to
give him credit, has put the
whole thing in the hands of
some of the most responsible
solicitors in England, and
there will be no monkeying
with the ballots as far as he
is concerned."
Rev. Mr. Dawson, of the
Anglican Church, who claims
that he was once a Conservative, was chairman at the
Liberal meeting at Lytton
last Friday night, and advised the audience to oppose the
Conservative candidate because of the unsatisfactory
result of an interview with
the Government over the irrigation system and a few
other trivial matters. If the
reverend gentleman has any
surplus energy going to waste
he might use some of it in
an endeavour to build up the
Church in this district instead of meddling in politics.
"That the press of Vancouver was as well qualified
to be called a prostitute as
any of the fallen women who
live their lives in dens of vice
and sell their virtue for a
price," was the assertion
made in very emphatic terms
by Rev. Ernest Thomas, pastor of Wesley church last
Sunday night. It is now up
to the Vancouver police to
get busy and run the nasty
newspaper men out of town.
We are going to miss the
latest war news when the
big dailies go out of business,
but no doubt Mr. Macfarlane,
the local telegraph man, will
oblige us with a bulletin once
in a while, at least until such
time as The Prospector is
able to make arrangements to
fet the news by leased wire
irect from the front.

Lillooet,  - British Columbia THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR
B. C. PROHIBITION ACT
STEADILY LOSING
GROUND
Some of the Reasons Why
the Act is Not Meeting
With Public Favor.
Wherever the B.C. Prohibition
Act has been discussed or studied,
the measure has steadily lost in
favor since the latter part of May,
when it was formally passed by
the Legislature without one word
from any member of the House
in favor of the general principle
or the details of the Act.
The reason for this condition of
affairs is that the Act is, on its
face, of such a counterfeit nature,
and its terms so absolutely contradictory to the general meaning
of the word "Prohibition", that
the public has come to see that
the Act will not accomplish the
ends sought for by the real Prohibitionists, and that, on the other hand, the passage of the measure would really be detrimental to
the best interests of the province
from any standpoint.
The parties who are promoting
the fight against the passage of
the Act are following out a line of
campaign which is unique on this
continent. Anti-Prohibition campaigns are generally waged on the
broad question of the advantage
or the disadvantage of Prohibition. In British Columbia the Anti-
Probition organization throws entirely to one side all the facts and
figures usually used in Prohibition
campaigns, and simply asks the
electors of the province to ' Read
the Act".
Let the reader glance over a
few of the principles enunciated
in the Prohibition Act and see why
the passage of the measure would
not be for the advantage of the
province.
1. THE ACT DOES NOT PROHIBIT, although it is called a
Prohibition Act, it provides for
the expenditure of just as much
money for liquor by the citizens
of British Columbia as is now the
case, and also permits this liquor
to be consumed within tl.e province. Clause 57 is a "Wide open"
section, as it permits any citizen
to import liquor from any point
outside the province, the orders
being placed for any amount and
as frequently as the person may
desire, all this being done without any control uy the authorities.
Under this clause a man may
place a standing order for a flask
of whisky per day, or a barrel of
beer per week, and have delivery
of such shipments made regularly
to him, just as long as he pays
the bills.
2. THE ACT WILL SEND
ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF
MONEY OUT OF THE PROV-
INCE. Clause 57 provides, as
noted above, for "wide open"
importation of liquor. The Prohibition legislation of Washington
and Oregon provides for the importation of limited amounts of
liquor, only one such permit for
each month to be granted to any
one individual. Even with this
limited importation enormous
amounts of money are now being
daily sent for liquor from these
states to California. If this is
the case where limited importation only is allowed, what would
be the case in British Columbia,
where the right to import is abso
lutely unlimited, unrestricted and
uncontrolled ?
3. THE ACT IS CLASS LEG
ISLATION. The importation clause
makes it easy for the man with money
to get liquor, and the Act means absolutely nothing to him. The working-
man or man of moderate means, accustomed to buy his beer by the glass, is
the man who has not the means to im
port liquor in quantity, and the Act
would indirectly deprive him of something he desires to enjoy. The Act is
class legislation also, in that it provides
that a man who is a boarder or a lodger
cannot have liquor in his possession, and,
further, that liquor may not be kept in
a house where there are boarders, where
more than three lodgers are kept, or
where the rooms occupied are in the
same building as a store or business
premises. Provisions such as the above
strike at the workman or the man of
moderate means and are class legislation, pure and simple.
4. THE ACT IS  UN-BRITISH.    It
provides that a constable may,  at any
hour of the day or night, forcibly enter
the private home of any citizen on the
mere suspicion that he has liquor in his
possession.   Having entered,  the constable may break into any room of the !
house, pry open any chest, etc.,  in his
search for liquor.    Another clause of j
the Act permits "sneak"  informers to:
state to a constable their suspicion that a j
man has liquor  in  his  possession.   The
constable lays an information in his own
name, and the name of the informer will
never be disclosed.   Again, should liquor
be found in a man's possession, he is
deemed guilty of violating the Act  until
he has proved that he came  into possession of the liquor legally. All these phases,
of the Act are, distinctly opposed to British traditions and customs.
5. THE PASSAGE OF THE ACT WILL
CAUSE GREAT UNEMPLOYMENT.
The licensed liquor industry in British
Columbia directly employs nearly four
thousand men, upon whom there are depending for support over six thousand
persons. All these will be thrown out of
work should the Act pass. The Act also
indirectly means a decrease of business in
very many allied trades, which now derive a part of their prosperity because of
the business coming from licensed prem-
1868
6." THE ACT INCREASES TAXATION.
At present every city, municipality and,
in the un-organized districts, provincial
authorities, derive a revenue for the licensing of the liquor trade. If the Prohibition Act passes, this source of revenue will be entirely elimina'ed, and the decrease must be made up by general taxes,
which means an increase in the tax rate.
The above brief outline, covering a few
clauses of the Act, should cause every
reader to read this Act thoroughly before
Sept. 14th, in order that he may understand the real provisions which it contains.
This referendum question is not one
which should be voted upon because the
mere say-so of this, that, or the other
person, no matter who they be", or what
their position. Let the elector "READ
THIi ACT" and "VOTE NO".       -Advt.
