F  Pcrrin, of Vancouver  * Prohibition would seem to .ex  press- a doubt, of the Heavenly  Fith t, a doub', of bis poA'er and of  Iiik love. That m why 1 fear prohi  ,, bition and favor moderation Gocl  knows us, knows what is in man,  and lias never been*afraicl of giving  his children their freedom. Despite  what* has been said for it, in my  view prohibi'ion will mean that  ���������public: morality will be poisoned  with secret corruptions. Man is not  'raised' if he is handcuffed and re-  'strioted. That is not life. He is  raided when given his liberty and  ���������the God given power to usp all crea  tures. Neither prohibitioti^or moderation will produce entire sobriety,  because man must first be master of  himself before evil can be conquered,  and man can never be master of  himself unless he enjoys his liberty  and freedom."  These were the outstanding views  expressed by Rev. F. E. Perrin, rector of St. Martin's Anglican church,  North Lonsdale, before a capacity  audience at Orange hall Tuesday  night, according to the" Vancouver  Province's report of the meeting. It  was essentially a moderation meet  ing, other speakers being J. H. Sen-  kler, K.C., Mrs. A. ..B. Harris, Lieut.  Greig and "Padd",;" Sullivan. Major  A. E Snyder presided and themili-  t.ry choir of returned soldiers opened the proceedinas with selections  which were greatly appreciated.  In clerical garb, Mr. Perrin admitted that he felt somewhat lonely,  as regards his appearance in tbe  absence of his brethren. His decided  statements in favor of the modera-  tion issue was given, he said, in the  hope that between theardent modem  tionist and the radical prohibitionist  present   at   the   meeting, his words  sP!io-d in i be human will and heart"  The 'prohibitionist a thick upnn  I'q'.ior, iherefnifj. In- regarded as a  mistake No commanding militarist  would duect an rttack against an  inanimate gun.  "It in the man behind the eun  who is to be,reckoned witn,for if the  man. escapes he will soon manufacture another weapon."  This was the fundamental -and  psychological mistake of the. pronU  bitionists, tbe speaker continued,  and" notwithstanding what archbishops and others had said in its  favor, probibi.ion was doomed to  failure, and to bring evil results upon the land.  Moderation, in its party principles,calculated to to recognize man's  rights and at the same time to curtail the field of operation in liquor  on behalf of the weaker brother���������  just as the bootlegger recognizes the  weakness of the prohibition proposals and supports them for his selfish ends.  Christianity's work of making  man master of himself had been  slow, said the Fpeaker, aod the fanatics were getting impatient of delay." But God's work had always  been slow, and the despite the fanatics and pessimists, the world   was | ing tho physician a   lawbreaker  also.  ish Columbia   Itinerary  Incl udes Four Meet\ v  in This Constituency  j would be declared ultra   vires of the  j legislature that passed it.  j     Mrs. A.

In 19,19 tTiere lul stills  and ISO,convictions, and in 1920 to  date there had been 992 stills and  676 ccmviotions during the working  of the Prohibition act Vancouver  police records showed 15 10 '���������drunks'''  under the "wet" condition in "1.916  and 1955 during the first 9 mouths  under "dry" regime. A similar 75  per cent increase was to he found  'in the number of drug cases handled  by the local police, she said.  Lieut Greig declared the Prohibition act illegal since it became  effective, as he claimed the soldier  majority was against it, but the  government decided the soldier was  too busy iu Flanders to have given  the itsue reasonable consideration.  Prom an average of 375 patients in  New Westminster asylum since 1917,  the number for the year 1919 had  increased to.574. The statements of  the prohibitionists that "dry" conditions emptied jails and asylums  could not be reconciled with this  condition, aifd the speaker expressed  doubt as to how many were there as  a result of Jamaica giuger^ over indulgence "and 'similar- decoctions  sold by, so-called    prohibition    deai-  Ol'awa, Oct. 8:���������A ooriinn of  Premier Meigheu's western itinernry  was jjiven out las*, evening : After  opening his tour with a sp'-'-'eb. at  Winnipeg on October IS, he will  travel west, speaking in Moose Jaw  Tuesday, October 19.

Utopian reform'methods, be continued, lay along the roadside of  the ages, broken twisted and discarded. But the gospel and freedom  never failed- and still Ptood firm.  The radicals might voice their im������  patience by 'putting forward a pa  tent American prohibition, but  God's freedom and gospel would  still stand paramount to all. Chiist  was man's example He lived his life  on earth as butnans must live it,  meeting all the rocks which man  encountered,, and- yet no scar or  wound ever marred his earthly life.  It must not be forgotten that Jesus  was tempted but never fell.  He tri-  might reach those neutral persons j umphed by bis obedience to God's  between the two seeking honest j rule manifested in law. He was first  light as to their proper course of ac-j master of himself and therefor master  tion on the issue.  To choose for moderation and  liberty or to give up the Briton's  liberty and vote for prohibition was  no easy thing to decide, according  to the lignts of the prejudicial parti-  of everything that God had given him  in the world around him.  Rov. Mr. Perrin compared lifowith  a great   workshop   full   of powerful  The Prohibition act favored the rich  and disregarded the needs of the  pooror men. He personally knew of  twenty local men each owning, "cellars" containing more than 85000  worth of liquor.  "I am a poor man, and can't afford  that, so I have none, and I'm jealous.  That's the effect of the Prohibition  act,'" he added.  Above all, under the government  control plan, he continued", a man  could retain his self respect and not  feePthat he was being treated like a  kindergarten youngster. Pie deplored  the fact that insult and abuso were  employed by the opponents of mader-  tion, and that good judges, representing the highest forms of British juris  prudde-nce, were not immune from attack, even though they were powerless, by virtue of-their oilice, to in  voke the aid of the press or platform  in their osvn defense.  'I  ers."  In the last campaign, added the  speaker, there wore prominent local  leaders in commerce who gave liberally to "the prohibition campaign  necessities. They were not to be  found on the same lists this year���������  perhaps because the low had stepped  in and stopped them selling their  deeoctions as heretofore.  No greater death knell to a pie  biscite could be found than public  apathy, continued the speaker, who  warned against apathy while "the  other fellow" was continually hard at  work.  Lieut. Greig deplored the fact that  a prohibition leader had found it  necessary to state that no good woman would vote for government control.   "Poor stuff!" ho oommented.  "Paddy" Sullivan, one of Van  couver's old timers, in the closing  address, vigorously denounced the  Prohibition act.

The  proper officers of tbe city were instructed to sign  the petition.  The clerk was instructed to take  steps to get in touch with owners of  lots iu tbe irrigation zone and effect  the transfer of lots in tha residential  section where such transfer won It!  assist in squaring out the acreagelor  irrigation purposes.  A discussion on the value of bind  after tbe irrigation system is installed, and as to whether or i.nt ii  would be advisable to raise the assessment after the water is put on  the land, took place. The couuci:  wept on record as not being iu favor  of increaiing the assessment.

It is  only  when they are indulged   in   to   excess   that  they become  a  curse, and in this respect the  good   things   suffer    equally ^ with the bad.  Whisky is denounced as a,curse to mankind,  yet when it is used in moderation is an excel-.  lent stimuleut to the man who has to  has  to  battle with  the  inclement  elements, and  its  medicinal qualities are well known. But when  it is used to excess there is no doubt of its injurious effects. Christ made wine. He is a very  weak Christian who believes.that the Man of  Sorrows made anything not absolutely useful to  the human race. Marriage is usually.accounted  the most sacred institution of our present-day  civilization, yet   if the people were to marry,  get divorced and remarry ad libitum the habit  would be infinitely worse thin consuming too  much liquor at a single sitting.    But although  r.his practice is in   vogue in certain parts  of  the world, and agitation for the abolishment  of marriage has r>ot yet been started.  How completely we have lost the arts of  seamanship as it was practiced in days of  square-rigged ships and hemp cables! The  British admiralty, which has undertaken to  restore the Victory, Nelson's flagship, can find  carcely a man in all the navy who knows  enough about handling a marlinspike to work  eyes and splices in the six-in-ch manila cables  that are to form part of her standing rigging.  Sailors who have been in'the service for forty  years, however competent they may be to  handle wire cables, leave enough "Irish pennants" in manila to disgrace"forever a "bos'n"  of the old days.  mmmsimmBgsatmm  ^An Austrian statesman who knew everything that went on during the fateful July of  1914 has an ..interesting explanation to offer  for the ontbreak of the war. "It wt?s the telephone," he says. "Its workings- with Berlin  and St. Petersburg ruined us. Instead of writing old-fashioned notes, which would have  givenus time',to., think, we telephoned���������and  lost our heads." Haste is destructive everywhere.

GRAND FORKS  Transfer Company  DAVIS S HANSEN, Props  It is not easy to see why the supporters  of  that legislative monstrosity, the present Prohibition act, should be so bigotted  as  to  imagine that The Sun does not favor real temperance, consistent with a reasonable  amount  of personal liberty.. The Sun proprietor voted  forche Act as a war measure and-as  a means  of eliminating the public bar, and he has since  lived up to the spirit of the law better than 95  percent of the pyople who are   now  howling  for its endorsement by the  British Columbia  derate. We wish to make this point perfectly  clear. In both of the  objects just  mentioned  the Act has served its purpose. But it.has not  promoted temperance, and for this reason it is  now time that it should be shelved and something else tried. It has, however,   been fruitful and in creating criminals, bootleggers and  hypocrites. God has made no lower being than  a hypocrite. According to all the  religions of  the world he is* doomed to   the  severest   tor.  tures of hell after death.  The fact that in the United States there are  on an average five fires in schools every day  indicates that a great many people need to be  taught so forcefully that they will never forget it that certain kinds of carlessness actually  are criminal. But, besides striving to lower the  number of such fires, every community should  be absolutely sure that its own school houses  are so designed an^^^^^  a fire, does  occur, can convert any of  them  into a death trap.

Among the many new kinds of money that  have come as a result of the war light, clean,  inexpensive porcelain coins, if experiments in  making them are so successful as to warrant a  large issue, will be perhaps the most ponvon-  ient. A porcelain factory at Dresdan, at the  suggestion of the ministry of finance, is investigating methorJs of making large quantities of  two-mark and five-mark "chinas."  One of the provisions of the new Elections  act is that a person must vote or his name will  be stricken off the voters' list. If you do not  cast your ballot on the prohibition referendum  you can not vote in the next provincial election.  Government control of the liquor traflic  will put the bootlegger out of business. That  js why he will votelbr the jpresent Prohibition  act. And a great many avowed temperance  people, who have made "easy^money" since the  act came into force, will vote for it for the  same reason.  The  .Dutch   wine  merchant,   Henri Naun  dorff, who represents himself to be a descend  ant of Louis XVI, Marie   Antoinette's son, is  the latest of a long list of historical pretenders  who have furnished plots for innumerable his  torical romances.

The  same cause has also delayed  this week's issue, and has, besides, compelled us to reduce  the paper to its former size.  Next week we intend to sub-'  mitour case,through Tlie Sun,  to the ratepayers.  Thi3 morning at 2:30 two five-  year prisoners, being conveyed from  Nelson to the penitentiary at the  oast, escaped from the guard by  jumping from the moving train two  miles east of this city.
