Missionary Banquet
Next Wednesday
The Laymen of the Methodist
church are making extensive preparations for their Second Annual
Missionary Banquet which is to be
held in the church on Wednesday

to excel their former effort. An
engagement has been made for
most excellent catering for the
supper, while the toast list introduces the names of the young men
of the church only. The banqueters will sit down to table at 6:30
p.m. sharp and the speaking will

A motion was passed approving
the action of the Finance committee
borrowing the sum of $2000 from
the Bank of Montreal. The mayor
explained that this note had been
given by the city against unpaid
taxes which amount to about
$3,400. He also stated that there
was a considerable amount of outstanding scavenging, electric light
and water fees. From present indications he was of the opinion that
there would be a surplus revenue
at the end of the present year of
The question of the revision of
.the voters' list was then taken up,
and Aid.J4aryey and Cox with the
Mayor were appointed to constitute
a Court of Revision'to sit Saturday
next, December 10th, at 10 a.m.,
Aid. Leckie to act in the absence
of either.
By-law No. 81 was then, introduced and given a first and second
reading. This is a by-law to regulate the Electric Light service.
A request .was received from Mr.
R. H. Parkinson for the council to
place sand on the crossing in front
of Mr. Elliott's house. This was
referred to the Board of Works. .
The right of drivers of delivery I
rigs and others to drive over the
grass on the sides of the roads
came up for consideration. Some
owners of lots had been at considerable pains to fix up the grass
in front of their lots, and also
planted trees, thus helping to make
the streets attractive. It was felt
that some protection should be
afforded to such against having the
grass cut up and the trees injured
by driving over them.
After some little discussion the
Board of Works was requested to
frame a set of rules governing the
construction of boulevards within
the city, and also to report upon
the advisability of framing a by-law
in connection therewith.
The meeting then' adjourned
until Monday next, December. 12,
at 8 p.m.
Big Blaze Destroys
Old Livery Barn
The big old frame building formerly occupied by-Messrs. Collett
Bros, as a livery barn prior to the
erection of their fine new cement
structure, is the latest victim to
the "devouring element." Soon
after 2 o'clock Wednesday morning
smoke was noticed issuing from
the rear of the building, and before
the brigade was.summoned the fire
had gofalmost complete hold.
Fortunately there was no wind
at the time, or the damage might
have been considerable, as the barn
was situated in a dangerous locality,
with-several old wooden buildings
near at hand, not to mention the
hotel which is just across the street.
The flames leaped to an enormous height, illuminating the whole
town, and practically the whole
structure was burnt to the ground.
Happily the building was empty or
nearly so—a few tons of hay belonging to the South Kelowna Land
Co., and several bags of sugar being the most valuable of the
Anxiety was felt at one time for
Coiietts' hew barn, tbe large doors
nearest the fire being considerably
scorched. The horses were removed to the park in case of
trouble, but happily the precaution
was needless, as the well-directed
efforts of the brigade were successful in preventing a spread of the
fire.      •

The medal won by Mr. C. E.
Weeks for the biggest apple in the
Vancouver show is on view in Mr.
Knowles' window. The result in
this case, Mr. Weeks contends, was
not quite satisfactory as his,exhibit
was distinctly the largest ' apple

$100 going to one badly blemished.

One of the. curious features of
the election now proceeding in
the old country is the intense interest displayed in all partis of the
Dominion in the great struggle
between the apostles of the new
regime, with Mr. Lloyd George and
Premier Asquith as high priests,
and the followers of the Conservative opposition, who stand for the
established order of things, and
through whom the time-honored
assembly of hereditary rulers—the
House of Lords—is fighting for its
Partly is this interest of the Canadian people due to the fact that a
number of well-known Canadians
are amongst the contestants, but
more still to the momentous issues
upon which the election is being
fought. Questions of vital importance to the English people and to
the great Empire beyond the seas
hang upon the result of the present
contest. Though tbe Lore s are in a
measure pledged to some reforms
even if given a new lease of power,
yet certain it is that should the
supporters of the Liberal government be returned to office with a
sufficiently strong working majority,
the first Parliament of King George
will be the instrument of reforms
of a sweeping and hitherto undreamed of character. 7
Though the strife between peers
and people is no new feature of
British politics; though the fight for
predominence between the ancient
aristocracy and the new democracy
has for long , years past been
steadily growing in intensity, never
before has the crisis been so acute,
nor the determination of the
Radical forces so great as at the
present time.
Realizing that a success to the
government party mean inevitably
the. relegation of the Lords to a
minor place in the affairs of the
nation/ the Unionists are putting up
a strong fight. Aided, however,
by the Labor party and the Irish
Nationalists, who will naturally
stand with the Liberals in support
of their veto proposals, the chances
are in favor .of' a government
majority, i A7 -■

With a view of organizing a cooperative selling agency company
to dispose of the $5,000,000 apple
crop of the Pacific northwest each
year, Homer C.Atwell, president of
the state horticultural society, will
issue a call to the growers of Oregon, Washington and California to
meet in convention at Portland
within the next 60 days. It is understood that <he call will be issued
The company will be capitalized
at $500,000 and will be formed
along the lines bf those perfected
by the orange growers of southern
California and the raisin growers of
the Sacramento valley.
It is expecfed that the new system will assist much in solving the
market problem for the growers,
and at the same time will increase
their financial returns.
According to President Atwell
the convention is to be called to
consider details of the proposed
organization. It is expected that
orchardists from all the apple
growing sections of the various
states in the northwest will attend
In discussing the plan, President
Atwell said :        ) '' -_ .
" At the meeting of the Oregon
state horticultural society this year
the necessity of a more efficient
organization for marketing apples
was conspicuously prominent in
the discussion.
" While very little trouble is experienced in marketing fruit ir^fhe
east, it has been called to my attention that fruit from one valley
hammers down the price of fruit
from another. On account of this
and the lack of system the principal
markets are glutted while ^mihqjf
nyukets are neglected with a result
that the best prices are not obtained by growers. These inefficient
methods of marketing and not excessive volume of output are at the
bottom of the danger of over-production."

"The Private Secretary," an adaptation from the German by Chas.
Hawtrey, the most successful farcical comedy of modern times.was
first produced at Cambridge on
Nov. 14, 1883. After-playing at
Oxford the piece was taken to the
then: Prince's Theatre, Coventry St.
London (now the Prince of Wales'),
the part of the Rev. Robt. Spalding
being created and played by Sir H.
Beerbohm Tree. Playing continuously up to May 19, 1884, it was
then transferred to the Globe The-
atre.in Wych St., when, Tree being
under contract to play in another
production, the leading part of Rev.
Robert was given ta W.' S. Penley,
who played it with phenomenal
success in a run of over two years,
during which time as many as ten
performances were given per week.
Since this, the piece has been played in the provinces, colonies and
all over Europe, Asia and America,
and at the present day its popularity and drawing powers are undiminished.

Mr. Colin Smith, of South Okanagan, was appointed delegate and
a committee appointed to meet
Monday morning for the purpose
of drawing up resolutions.
The following resolutions were
adopted:— -
1. Resolved : That this institute
believing .that it is to the best
interest of horticulture and- agriculture throughout the whole province
hereby request the Local Government to take steps at an early date
to establish a horticultural and
agricultural college in this valley. 7$
2,; That'it would bfr in the bestr
interest   of   the   fruit-growers   of-f
British    Columbia    to    have    the
Oregon apple box recognized as a
legal box as well as that which  is
now prescribed. ,i
3" That recognising the great
benefit derived from the packing
school conducted under the auspices of the Local Government last
winter we believe it would be very
advantageous to have these continued the coming winter and we
therefore hereby ask the Government to,arrange for these schools,
4. ■'. That for .the development of
tobacco industry in the province
some Government aid is necessary
to provide an expert to travel about
and. give information and practical
assistance to those engaged in the
5. "That the existing conditions
in connection with the control and
distribution of water for irrigation
purposes are far from satisfactory
in certain districts of British
Columbia, resulting in excessive
waste, inadequate supply, and inequitable distribution, which often
lead to costly litigation: And that
large tracts of land remain undeveloped in consequence of the lack
of systematic conservation: This
Central Institute therefore requests
the Government to introdnce and
put into effect u system of Government ownership and operation' of
the water supply for irrigation
purposes by construction ot reservoirs and distributing systems in
this district.
6. That in districts in which a
Farmers' Institute hna to include
groups of members numerous
enough to form several institutes of
their own, and where such groups
of members may reside so many
miles from the centre^ giving its
name to the Institute that it is impossible for them to regularly
attend its meetings:. The present
subscription at 50c. per head is
insufficient to allow of the expenses
for holding the meetings of the
institute, from time to time at
places more convenient for these
groups, and that to meet such cases
it should be legal for any institute
to decide by the vote of a majority
of its members that the subscription
be one dollar instead of 50c. per
annum, and that- the Government
grant to institutes doing this should
also be doubled.
A movement, originating in Cariboo, is on foot among the professional hunters and trappers of the
province, to have a license fee established for trappers, in order that
the provincial government may be
in a position to regulate the business and afford greater protection
to the fur-bearing.animal8 as at the
present rate of depletion it will not
be many years before the animals
carrying valuable skins are a thing
of the past except in the most isolated localities.
Just what value furs are to the
province as a whole it is hard to
determine, but for the past several
years the territory tributary to
Hazelton has produced about $50-
000 each year. This amount includes all raw furs marketed in the
interior at the various Hudson's
Bay posts, as well as those disposed of to local merchants. Those
taken by whites are inconsiderable
and can scarcely be taken into account but the occasional inroads
of a white trapper into the hunting
grounds of the natives have been
the cause of a great deal of destruction, and are regarded by those
well informed as being one of the
main causes for the rapid decrease
in the amount of fur sold at Hazel-
ton or passing through for shipment to England.
Since no one knows when, the
Indians have had the country divided into tribal domains ard these
in turn into the "illahees" or hunting grounds of the families of the
various tribes. Within his own
territory the Indian regards game
of all kinds, including the fur bearing anijnals, as capital to be drawn
Qpqc^only"fof his requirments and_
in such a manner as not to decrease the quantity from year to yearr
When a white man starts hunting
and trapping in the native's particular hunting grounds, it is the
signal lot an indiscriminate slaughter. The Indian regards this
territory as ruined and that he
might as well get all he can out of
it while it lasts. This has resulted
in exterminating the beaver in
whole sections of country. y
Outside of any sentimental regard the practical side of the question dictates the preservation of
the wild animals, valuable for their
skins, that are not pests to the settlers. The natives are becoming
more independent of hunting as a
means of existence and it may
easily be that some steps be taken
toward the restriction of trapping
by whites and to preserve what, to
the province us a whole, is a revenue worth considering. Qyite
recently beaver have commenced
to increase as a result of the protection affprded_and they are spr- —
eading over parts of the country
where they were exterminated
years ago.—Colonist.

a very lucid and encouraging di«-

Geo. Whitaker sang " How Beautiful are thy Dwellings by S. Liddle.
The church is rapidly becoming
too small for the increased attendance.
Mrs. J. W. Woolsey has been

operation has been successfully
performed and that Mrs. Woolsey

Of course no man ever performed an act of bravery in the hope of
reward. The men who do big,
brave things are not the class of
men to look for reward. But the
man who is brave enough to risk
his life to save another, not in the
slress of hot fighting where the
spirit of indifference to danger has
been roused by the excitement of
the game, but in the cold chill of a
winter's gale on the treacherous
waters of a lake—the man who in
tlie face of death, will plunge into
tKe cold waters of a storm-swept
lake as did Mr. Frank Bastier last
v ;ek to save the Jives of Robert
Lloyd and Thomas Wardlow, who
were clinging exhausted to a cap-
Azed boat—is one of Nature's
noblemen, though he may never
wear a crown or have his name
e:nblazoned on the scroll of Timr.
E >stier may never get more than a
nivdal for bravery from the Royal
Humane Society. He deserves
more, and we should be pleased
to learn that the citizens of Kelowna
have in some tangible way conveyed to him their appreciation for
his bravery and recognition of his
courage.—Sum. Review.
Vernon is apparently up against
a serious difficulty with their new
waterworks system. This big undertaking which has involved an expenditure of some $90,000 includes
a cement-lined reservoir, adjoining
which is a storage basin. The
work was supposed to be practically completed and reaay to hand
over to the city. Owing to misunderstanding between the council
and the engineer in charge of the
work, a second engineer was asked
to report on the work. The latter
has condemned the storage basin
as not only useless but a serious
menace to the reservoir, unless
large sums of money are spent on
it. The concrete-lined reservoir

"The Three  Musketeers"
The Daily Telegraph, North
Platte, Neb., says:
" Sanford Dodge, with his splendid
company, gave the play " The
Three Musketeers" at the Keith
theatre last evening, and the
audience enjoyed an evening of
rare entertainment. Every actor in
Mr. Dodge's company showed an
intelligent and masterful appreciation of the part he played.
It is safe to say the most people
know little of " The Three Musketeers." Scarcely anyone knows
the subject matter of this classic, so
to most people the attendance at
the play furnishes an intellectual
treat. This play is arranged by
Mr. Dodge himself, and reflects
great credit upon his talent and
The Merchant of Venice
Sanford Dodge, the Shakespearean actor, made his first appearance
before a Silver City audience this
week and he made good. Mr.
Dodge is a finished and consumate
artist and gives an intelligent, sympathetic and artistic interpretation
of the great roles he assays. On
Monday evening " Faust" was
given, Tuesday evening " The
Taming of the Shrew," and on
Wednesday evening, the most
finished production of all, a skillful
interpretation of " The Merchant
of Venice." This last performance
was as decidedly deliniated and as
clean cut as a cameo, and those
who went saw a living, breathing
thing. The troupe was better cast
in this play than in the others, and
Dodge himself in the role of Shy-
lock showed a versatility and a
broad sympathetic understanding
of human nature that bespeaks for
him a great future.—-Silver City,

command ; in the test qualifications
for non-commissioned officers of

regulations, not being strictly enforced ; and in the rank and file

whether the present system meets
the defensive requirements of the
country or not.
In the House of Commons last
Thursday, the Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King introduced his bill to
prohibit the manufacture, sale or
use,of opium, except for medicinal
purposes. The most important
provision of the bill is that it makes
it a criminal offence to smoke
opium. Mr. King explained that
the bill would make more effective
the legislation of two years ago. It
makes more provision for effective
search in cases where smuggling
is suspected, and places upon the
owners of opium supplies the onus
of establishing that they have it in
their possession for medicinal purposes only.

mirages of that pudding, aud during
the Boer war the men shut up in
Ladysmltli and Mufeklug dreamed of
It at regular Intervals.
Precisely at r o'clock p. in Tom conveys the pudding from the first to the
'main floor, it Is a big pudding, and
the price of It la just '2 shllllngs-that
ia to say, a feed of It Is 2 shillings, as
much as you please, aa many shares as
you ask for, cut and eome again, all
for 48 cents of American coId. Cheap,

worth crossing the Atlantic to get a

the memory for many u day.
Big? The dimensions are Falstafflan.
It Is a round earihen vessel something
more than two do/.eu Inches deep, with
a diameter of about eighteen inches.
A noble pastry, my masters!
When It Is placed upon the service
table an elliptical white crust meets
the hungry gaze. Tom and his myrmidons take their places in front facing tbe host, who, knife and spoon in
hand, poses with geutle dignity and
benignant mien. It Is a moment of
solemn thought wheu every man hopes
that his portion will be larger than bis

witb an abundance of gravy. Bat

Into the tank where the percb was

Why It Comes Out Cold Through Partly Closed Lips.
When one breathes out used air from
the lungs through the wide open
mouth the breatb has the same temperature as tbe body, 98.0 degrees F„
aud frequently on a cold day we warm
our fingers by breathing on them. If,
however, we blow tbe breatb vigorously from the mouth tbe temperature
of the breath appears to be much lower than wben breathed gently and with
open mouth aud la decidedly cooling
in Its effect, writes J. Gordon Ogden
ln Popular Mechanics.*
The latter fact is due to tbe well
known principle established by Lord
Kelvin, tbat a compressed gas upon
expanding will absorb heat The
breatb. compressed_by being forced to
pass through the small orifice made
by the puckered lips, immediately ex-
pauds upon being admitted to tbe outer air and to do so must take up heat
This is also tbe Identical principle
Involved lu the manufacture of artificial Ice. Ammonia gas Is first compressed into a liquid and then liberated into a network of tubes surround-
lug large sheet iron boxes filled with
distilled water. Tbe liquid ammonia,
set free at oue end of the pipe system,
begins at once to evaporate, and by
the time It has scampered through tbe
long Iron tubes It bas become gas. As
we have learned, to change a liquid to
a gas .requires beat This beat Is
taken from tbe iron piping, an excellent conductor, which in turn robs the

The Humorist'" Researches Shed a
Flood of Brilliant Light Upon th*
Peculiar Traits of the "Astronomical
Parodies on tho Planets."
Tbe famous Amerlcnu humorist, Bill
Nye, wrote the following article on tha
traits of comets for the San Francisco
Argonaut, Id which it was published
a Dumber of years ugo:
Tbe comet Is a kind of astronomical
parody on the planet. Comets look
some like planets, but they are thin*
ner and do not hurt so burd when they
hit anybody ns u plauet does. The
comet was so nil led because It bad
balr on It. I believe, but of lute years
tbe hnldheuded comet is giving Just
ns good satisfaction everywhere.
The characteristic features of the
comet are a nucleus, a uebulous light
or coma and usually a luminous train
or tall worn high. Sometimes several
tails are observed on one comet, but
this occurs only in Uusb times.
When I was young I used to think
I would like to be a comet ln the sky,
up above tbe world so blgb, with
notblng to do but loaf around and play
with tbe little new laid planets and
have a good time, but now I can see
where I was wrong. Comets also
bave their troubles, tbelr perlhellons,
their hyperbolas and their parabolas. A
little over 300 years ago Tycho Brabe
discovered that comets were extraneous to our atmosphere, and since then
times have improved. 1 can see that
trade is steadier and potatoes run less
to tops than they did before.
Soon after that tbey discovered that
comets all had more or less periodicity. Nobody knows bow they get it
All tbe astronomers bad been watching them day and nigbt and didn't
know when they" were exposed, but
tbere was no time to talk and argue
over the question. Tbere were 200 or
SOO comets all down with it at once.
It was an exciting time.
Comets sometimes live to a great
age. This shows that tbe nigbt air is
not so injurious to the health as many
people would bave us believe. Tbe
great comet of 1680 is supposed ta
have been tbe one tbat was noticed
about tbe time of Caesar's death, 44
B. C, and still wben It appeared in
Newton's time, 1,700 years after Its
first grand' farewell tour, Ike said that
it was very well preserved indeed and
seemed to bave retained all its faculties in good shape.
A late writer on astronomy said that
the substance of tbe Debuloslty and
tbe tail Is of almost inconceivable
tenuity. He said this, and then death
came to his relief.
Another writer says of the comet and
Its tail tbat "tbe curvature of the latter and the acceleration of the periodic
time in tbe case of Encke's comet indicate their being affected by a resisting medium wbicb has never been observed to bave tbe slightest influence
on the planetary periods."
1 do not fully agree with tbe eminent authority, though be may be
right. Much fear bas been the result
ot tbe comet's appearance ever since
tbe world began, and it is as good a
tbing to worry about as anything I
know of. If we could get close to a
comet without frightening it away we
would find tbat we could walk through
it anywhere as we could through the
glare of a torchlight procession. We
should so live that we will not be
ashamed to look a comet ln tbe eye,
however. Let ns pay up our newspaper subscription and lead sncb lives

Varying 8ounds That May  Be Heard
Through the 8tethoscope.
Tbe doctor hears some curious noises
when be places tbe stethoscope against
your chest Wheu the lungs are In a

soft in tone, aa you draw in the breath
and expel It Should the Instrument
convey to his ear a gurgling or bubbling sound be makes a mental note of
the fact tbat you are in what Is known
as the moist stage of bronchitis. In
the dry stage of t,be same complaint
the sound Is a whistling, wheezy one.
One of the signs of pneumonia is the
crackling note that comes through the
stethoscope. It Is not unlike tbe sound
tbat can be beard wben your finger
and thumb have touched a sticky substance and you first place tbem together and then part tbem, holding
them close to your ear.
Doctors occasionally hear a dripping
sound, and that Indicates that air and
water have got Into some part of the
chest where they have uo right to be.

Did You  Ever Hear the Fans Cheer
Him For His Work?
Tbere Is one unique phase connected
with the life of the umpire which per
baps has never occurred to most lovers of baseball. You have often beet.
to a theater and seen the hero or hero
too—yes, even the villain—win round
after round of applause fbr some excellent bit of acting.
You have been to a football game
and heard some ball gladiator cheered
to the echo for making a long run that
resulted In a touchdown or for a flying tackle that prevented imminent
defeat When some player Is injured
they convey tbelr sympathy to him by1
cheering bis name.
You bave been to a ball game and
beard the fans cheer some crack
pitcher because In a pinch he fanned
some mighty batter. Ifs Just the natural way of the American to show admiration and appreciation.
Rack your brain, think your hardest recall every game you have ever
attended, then see if you can remember a time when the umpire drew applause for his work. Have you ever
beard the fans cheer the name of the
umpire after be has worked a fifteen
Inning game which fairly bristled with
close and unusual plays and got away
without a kick? If you can recall such
an Incident. Just dot it down In your
notebook that you were present at a
very, very unusual happening. /•
Do they cbeer the umpire's name
wheu be stops a foul tip with his shin
or has a swift shoot bounced off bis
mask? Yes, they do—not Any injury
to tbe umpire usually gets a round of
derisive laughter from the crowd-.
Generally, if he bas been going bad.
some leather lunged Individual re
quests that he be killed or chloroformed. Of course there are many people
In the stands who sympathize with tbe
umpire. Their sympathy is usually
silence. That isn't much balm to bis
Injury or feelings.
Applause would sound so strange to
an umpire's ears that be would proba

"Speaking of buglers," says Boatswain Juraschkn in bis article, "Captured by Filipinos." iu Wide World

tbat the insurgents had so many buglers and that many of them were of
tbe best. Tbey knew all our army
calls, although they did not know their
significance, i was often asked the
meaning of various calls and was careful to give them any but tbe proper
one. One Insurgent colonel asked me
what call was sounded as the retreat
from the charge. 1 told him that we
had no such call, but that, the charge
once sdunded. American soldiers -and
sailors went through or never came

Galilei's   Rude   Instrument   the
Used In Astronomy.
Tbe first telescope was pointed toward the sky on Jan. 7, 1610, when
Ualilei first tried his rude instrument
and was rewarded by discovering some
of the moons of Jupiter. No great
magnifying power was needed for this,
us at least one of the moons-is large-
enough to be seen by the naked eye
dhl not the n^arneas of the brilliant
planet prevent this. Lenses'had been
known for a long time and were at
that time In common use by nearsighted persons.
The name of the real discoverer of
the telescope seems to be unknown,
but the accepted story now Is that
two young sons of a Mlddebury optician named Llppereley ' some time
between 1C05 and 1008, while playing
with some lenses, happened to bold
two of them at a distance from each
other and were surprised and delighted to find that the weather, vane on a
neighboring tower seemed to come
near them when looked at through tbe
two lenses. In April, 1(509, a little
telescope made In Hollnnd was offered
for sale In Paris.
The next month;Galilei, then a professor IB the university at Padua,
heard of this Instrument aud realized
nt once Us Importance In the study of
astronomy From the description of
the' Dutch Instrument\ he had one
made at once, and in August be astounded the people of Venice by showing them from (he top of the cam-
paulte persons entering tbe doors of
the church at Muruno. This spyglass
was less than two Inches in diameter
and magnified three times. From this
crude instrument of Galilei to tbe
monster telescopes forty Inches tn
diameter of the present day Is the development of only three centuries-

"Dnd. I'm getting tired ot school. I
think I'll quit"
"Why," asked the astonished parent,
"what's - the matter, Tommy? I
thought you were fond of going to
school." -
"So I am, dad," responded the youngster, suppressing a yawn, "but it
breaks up the day so." —-

Facts Worth knowing.
The principal of prohibition it a well-
known one in reference to all forms of
human life. Tlie first country in modern
times to enact constitutional prohibition
against the manufacture, importation and
sale of intoxicating liquors was Iceland, in
1906, with a population of 85,000.
The inhabitants of the Danish Faroe Islands, off the north coast of Scotland, ab.
olisHed the liquor traffic in 1907 from the
entire group.
■ By international agreement in 1888, the
sale of liquor at sea by " Coopers " to the
North Sea fishing fleets was suppressed.
Tne Finland Prohibitory law was voted
in 1908 and reaffirmed by a vote of 158
for and 34 against in Nov. 1909. But the
Czar of Russia refused imperial - sanction.
To counteract this piece of wickedness, to
make the "will of the people effective, 300-
000 persons leagued themselves together
to abstain from   all spirituous,liquors  in
Tamerfor, a Finnish working-class centre
with a population of 25,000, has put prohibition into effect aitd entirely abolished the
liquar traffic.  —       .
After the strike in Poland in "J 1606 the
spirit shops of the Russian government
were attacked by Workingmen, who pour,
ed the vodka . (liquor) into the gutters.
Tens of thousands pledged themselves to
abstain from spirits to prevent the government monopoly getting the money. , In
Poland there are ; four- temprance newspapers and 22 total abstinence societies;
In the Sweedish parliament, by a vote
of 89 ty> 86 in 1907, prohibition was approved since which date the "movement has
spread. A. meeting, called by the state
church ministers in Upsala cathedral declared itself in favor of prohibition, - under
which law four-fifths of the population aire
now living.. There are'[■ 136 'members bf
the parliamentary temprance group, 86 being total abstainers. There are 125 newspapers advocating temprance, or prohibition, and refuse liquor advertisments.
In Norway, in 1906, the;.direct veto was
extenced to the cities, and nearly one half
of these are now under prohibition. At the
Jast elections an average of 87 per. cent, of
the Voters declared against the traffic. Forty
daily newspapers adopted prohibition principles. -'/A A ■'■''■'■■■':■■'    '"''
