N the pages of this volume a long-felt want has
been supplied. The opponents of Temperance Reform have often questioned the figures and statistics of the evil trade in Canada, given by temperance men as being of doubtful accuracy, owing to the differences in the estimates made by different speakers. We have now, in this volume, carefully prepared and most complete statements and arrays of facts and figures which can be utilised as a basis for the future. In many ways in addition to this, the volume commends itself to the public in this age of quickened interest in Temperance work. The thoughtful and massive presentation of facts showing the wasteful character of the Liquor Manufacture, its small employment of labor and its immense injury to both the tradesman and the laborer, from an economical point of view, will help to convince many a fair mind as to the blessings that would result to this country were the whole liquor traffic banished from our soil-may God grant it soon,-but more for the sake of the dear flesh and blood wasted than for any money that would be saved.
