Board o f Temperance Chairman Reports Re. suits of Investigation. NEW' YORK, (UP)—That Canadian politics arid government, are completely' controlled by a liquor ring, is the charge made' by Dr. Clarence True Wilson, Secretary of tte Methodist Board of Temperance, after a study of tlic Canadian system of governmental snle of alcohol beve/nges. "There is probably no government on enuli today mor.2 ttoroughy dominated by liquor than the eight provinces of Canada," he reports In Collier's, One purpose of the Canadian system, he states, was to get. rid of the liquor Interest in politics, ''But it has'not worked out that way." lie asserts. "The system puts politics and the governme'iiL Into complete partnership with the liquor traffic. When ft government official tells how his system is work- Ing, he is now a liquor dealer talking In the interest of his trade. The government Is controlled by liquor. The Church Is well-nigh silenced, the press, is mute, the voice of the agitator Is not heard in the land,—because of an all- dominating, controlling and sup- piosslng interest." Dr. Wilson finds many other faults with the Canadian system lie says one reason for Its adoption governmental control actually promotes home drinking by transferring all drinking from public plaies into the homes. He declares thai many Canadians supported the control plan on the ground that it would take the element of private profit out of the liquor traffic. "But it has not done this,"' YP. Insists "All liquors are still manufactured hy private enterprise. Private profits are not eliminated,—they are merely insuvcd and augmented. No wonder ' brewery and distillery sleeks continue to mount. No other business has even ueen given such favors." Dr. Wilson finds that the Canadian system has" not got rid of boo'tlegglng. He reports 100 bootleggers running. Bay and night within a few -blocks of a big city church. He tells of one woman i>a- iron of the government istores who purchased an average'of 80 gallons iwr day for "personal consumption." "Rum Is supreme in Canada today," Dr. Wilson summarizes. "Few men with aspirations for public life will dare to attack it. Patriotism swallows the dose, the Church walks softly lest Its loyalty to ths state be put In question; even the temperance organizations nre making little noise. Liquor has put dui (heir fires, silenced the preacher In the pulpit, mupzlert the editor at hLs desk; blindfolded the agitator. "Meanwhile the law is making n nation of drinkers. Young people arc learning: to drink In unexampled numbers. They see the trade made respectable by government sanction and participation. Liquors are' made cheap, v.?ry cheap, by government 'sale, and the purity of thr commodity in which the government' deals is continually stressed, If the traffic continues to increase at the current raU,' Canada may yet have the distinction of drinking more per capita than any other nation does, or ever did, in tfe world's history."

Edgar L. Culler. WITHOUTijBKNElTr OF CI.EKtiV While governor of. North Carolina, the late Thomas W.

Of course. In the beginning I should be denounced as an Infamous tyrant, but after the law had been in effect for ten years the richest state In the union would* build a monument lo me as the financial redeemer of my people." Had it been possible for Gov-, crnor Blckett to bring about the changes tlmt his splendid mind and keen vision caused him to advocate. II Is safe to say thai North Carolina v;ou!d not today be Importing food and feed with an annual value of 1180 000,000. of Orangeburg county, South Carolina, has advanced from a one- horse farmer lo the owner of 2,500 debt-free, money-making acre's of farm land. Regarding his soil as his business partner, Mr. Culler has been careful not only to conserv Its fertility but lo improve It from year lo year by growing velvel beans, soybeans and .cowpeas About one-third of his cultivated land Is in a legume every year. The liberal application of compost and the judicious use of commercial fertilizers have been valuable aids Willie cotton Is the major money crop irf the Culler cropping system, cotton money-has never been used to buy food or feed thai could be frown on the farm.

Quantities of grain and roughage find their way to market through hog.s and beef .cattle. Due. regard for the welfare o! tenants has played an important part In the success of the Culler farm. About half of the farm's tenants own their livestock and eacli family ha.s a plot for vegetables, sweet potatoes and things of that kind. There Is no division of the products from these plots, the ten- arils' families uslnc them all. South Carolina farmer* can havr something like $135,«U«,OH more every 'year (o do with as they pleau by applying the methuds that ac- cciuit for Mr. Culler's succcn. S. M. Cocicrell, of Macon county. Mississippi, figures that a farmer who has to buy his food and feed might Jusl as well quit and go into Ihe hauling business altogelher. Operating a public dray he might at least be able to make his own expenses, white the time and money it'takes to haul food and feed out to hts farm is just a dead loss. Mr. Cockrell .believes in keeping his garden and truck patches producing twelve months In the year. His tamlly enjoys at all times, (resli from the farm, plenty of meat, vegetables, dairy and poultry products. For several years, he has been milking cows and adding to his herd as rapidly as his experience witli dairy cows will justify. He says hi? won't 'be satisfied until he heads the list nt the Borden milk plant located In Macon. It is his practice to raise plenty of meat for the farm and-have some pigs to sell. Fotry-seven head of sheep have recently been added. Is It any wonder that Mr..,Cockrell makes money out of the 300 acres that he plants In cotton every year, or that his average yield per acre Is considerably higher than tlv county average?

DETROIT, (UP)—It would seem th«re Is no clause In the prohibition law governing consumption of tonics, containing 22 per cent alcohol, on drinking of such beverages. Al least that is the finding of the local prohibition department. It all started when a pre-elecllon dinner was given In honor of Seymour H. Person, congressman-elect, here. During the course of the dinner, tonic of 22 per cent alcoholic content, was served. The testimonial wus given by Robert D. Wardell, president of the Michigan Moderation League and state representative, who pointed out that the tonic could b? procured legally in spite of Its high alcoholic content. Warden also contended It showed tho hypocrisy of the prohibition law. A lengthy probe, conducted by Thomas H. Brennan, acting deputy administrator, during which samples of the tonic were purchased and examined, bore out Warden's contention. After "examining" the Ionic, which was purchased In local drugstores, the probing agents admitted Ends Piles Quick ' Pile sufferers can only get quick, safe, and lasting relief by removing the cause—bad circulation of the blood In the lower bowel Cutting and external remedies can't do this—an internal medicine must be used.
