abnormal   amount  of optimism,
when he clambered up the hill to

ORIGINATORS
Labor Has Condemned
The Prohibition
Act
Trades And Labor Councils of Coast
Cities Pass Strong Resolutions ���
Reasons Why Workingmen
Should    Vote   Against
The   Bill.
Organized labor has declared its
position with reference to the B.C.
Prohibition Act with no uncertain
sound, the result of close investigation of and keen discussion on
the Bill having resulted in the
straight declaration by the Coast
labor bodies that the Act should be
condemned and that the working-
men of British Columbia should do
all in their power to defeat the
measure at the polls.
The Vancouver Trades and
Labor Council, the most representative central labor organization in
British Columbia, at its meeting on
July 20th, passed a strong resolution against the Act, the closing
paragraph reading as follows:
"Resolved that the Trades and
Labor Council in Vancouver, B.C.,
in harmony with representative
bodies of organized labor elsewhere
places itself on records opposed
to the British Columbia Prohibition
Act and to the principles involved
therein.,,
In adopting the above resolution the Vancouver Trades Council was but following the steps of
the New Westminster Trades and
Labor Council which on June 14th
passed the following resolution:
"Resolved that this Council go
on record as opposed to prohibition
as contained in the proposed Bill,
from an economic and social standpoint and report this decision to
the various unions with the request that they help defeat the
Bill."
The resolutions above noted are
in line with the action of the Victoria Trades and Labor Council and
the Prince Rupert  Labor Council.
Workin.rn.en Have A "Kick" Comin_r
The discussion in connection
with the passage of these resolutions showed plainly that working-
men believe they have a just
"kick,"in connection with the
Prohibition Act. It was stated
that the measure was class legislation of the rankest type inasmuch
as it allows the man of means to
secure all the liquor he desires by
importing it from outside points,
but at the same time places a handicap on the workiDgman who can
only afford to buy hiB bepr by the
glass. This argument is directly
along the line of the remarks by
Mr. Parker Williams, member for
Newcastle, on Discussion of the
Bill in the House, when he openly
declared the Act to be class legislation aud Btated that while he
"would vote for Prohibition that
would prohibit he would never
have anything to do with such lopsided, jug-handled imitation such
as the present Bill."
The Act is also objectionable to
tiades unions inasmuch as many of
its c[auses were declared to be un-
British and unfair. It was pointed out that clause 29 provided that
any person could tell a constable
that he suspected a man had liquor
illegally in his possession. On this
information, and without disclosing the name of the informer, tbe
constable could enter a man's
house, break into all the rooms,
closets, etc., without a warrant.
Such provisions were severely criticised by members of the labor
councils as absolutely opposed to
the British idea that "A man's
house is his castle."
In taking the action they did,
the councils were also moved by
the feeling that they should support the large body of working-
men who are today either directly
or indirectly engaged in connection with the operation of licensed
premises. It was.stated that 3,700
men are now thus employed and
that 6,000 persons are dependent
upon them for a living. This does
not include over 1200 employees of
licensed premises who are now at
the front. As the Prohibition Act
would mean that these men would
be thrown out of work, the councils considered that legislation leading to such action, especially at
this time should be vigorously
opposed.
Many delegates who took part in
the council discussions said that
they were Prohibitionists. They
stated,  however,   that they were
opposed to the Act because it was
nofe a Prohibition Act in any real
sense of the term, provisions being
made in it for th�� purchase of
liquor by importation or otherwise
just as freely as is now the caso.
They plainly stated that they did
nob consider a vote against the
Prohibition Act a voto against the
principle of Prohibition, as to their
minds, the passage of such an Act
as was proposed would not in any
way lessen the purchase or consumption of liquor. As a matter
of fact, although it might tend to
decrease the consumption of health
giving beer (the workiuginen's
usual beverage,) it would actually
increase the consumption of whisky
and spirits, a condition which was
not for the best interests of the
workingman or the province.
Cooies of Prohibition Act Free
In order that the electors of
British Columbia may becom..
thoroughly acquainted with tho
provision-- of tho B.C. Prohibition
Act, on which a referendum vote
will bo taken in connection with
the provincial elections on September 14, the Merchants' Protective
Association have prepared a
pamphlet, giving the full text of
bhe Bill. Copies oE this booklet
may be obtained, free of charge,
by addressing the Secretary of the

Blue Sunday
Virgina began on Sunday to enforce, with apparent success,  laws
of an older time little adapted to
modern    conditions.    Ife   may   be
that the  people of the State are
ready for such a return to the principle of interference with "reason-:
able individual liberty.    It is their
privilege to carry "Sabbath observance"   to  a  point   at   ���which   it
checks familiar and innocent human  activities.     Yet,   unless all
experience is believed,  the gain to
'���true religion and virtue" will not
he appreciable.    You cannot compel men to [worship by forbidding
them to do anything else.   There
of course, proper distinctions to be
made   between   Snnday and the
other days of the .'-week,/.bat: in a
few communities are the extremes
of Puritanism  jastified  by  public
sentiment/   On  the contrary, at-,
tempts to restrain acts harmless in
.'themselves because a comparatively snaaHportion of the population
; o! j'ects to them are almost certain
.to create ������ a ���> reaction.���Eossland
