-0- THE PROGRESS OF TEMPERANCE LEGISLATION. Mr Charles Roberts was among the speakers at the annual meeting of the Salford Temper- ance Union on Saturday. He said he was de- scribed on the programme as "the late local veto candidate for Osgoldcross." This was not quite accurate. He was not merely a local veto candidate. A man might be a genuine Conser- vative and yet in favour of local veto, but one could not be a true Liberal now without being at the same time a supporter of Local Veto. Many people outside and inside the temperance movement seemed to wonder why more pro- gress was not being made, and why, if they could not get all they wanted, some forward step was not taken in the direction they wished to. He thought people who took that line made I the mistake of not taking a sufficiently long view. Great changes had taken place within recent years. Fifty years ago the legislative mind of the country sought to remedy the evils of tho liquor traffic by free trade in beer. We j had got a long way in advance of that new; we had got nearer to restrictive legislation, and all licensing bodies were adopting an attitude of increasing stringency. In various others was progress was being made, and in the last ten or twenty years many small instalments of reform had been carried. He looked to the future with great hope.
