plant them when he got him, so that
his descendants might walk under

Notes by the Way
The province of Britisii Columbia appears to have hail enough of
politics so far as party division aie
cone.rued, and only in one instance
were the bye elections contested,
and then only as a result of a split
in the go-,eminent ranks, The
confidence I bus placed in Mr.
Brewster's administration is most
marked, a confidence which is ad.
ded to bv the refusal of the official
Conservative party to nominate
candidates to oppose the miiiist-is
seeking re-electi.n. It is to be hoped '.hat the new government will
realize this unique situation, and
inasmuch as it was returned to (lower by Conservative as well as by
Liberal votes, act accordingly.

There is unmistakable wisdom in
General Sir William Robertson's advice to prepare for lhc worst while
hoping for the best. The greatest of
all follies is lo under estimate one's
opponents. It is well for us lo remember that nirrliy lights have been
lost in lhc lasl round. The facl lhal

that the enemy is lighting on the defensive, hardly daring lo expect anything but defeat, is the greater reason for putting all our strength Into

men and that it ivanls them now.

Telling How to Actually Cure This
Common and Painful
lhis article is for the man or woman who suffers from rheumatism
who wants to bc cured, not merely
relieved���hut actually cured. The
most the rheumatic sufferer can hope
for in rubbing something ou the tender, aching joint is a lillle relief. No
lotion or liniment ever tlid or can
make a cure. The rheumatic poison
is rooted in the blood. Therefore
rheumatism can only he cured when
this poisonous acid is driven oul of
lhc blood. Any doctor will tell you
tllis is true. If you want something
that will go right to the root of the
trouble in the blood take Dr. Williams' Fink Pills. They make new,
rich blood which drives out the poisonous acid and cures rheumatism lo
stay cured. The Irulh of these slalc-
mcnls has been proved in thousands
of cases throughout Canada, and the
following cure is a striking instance.
Mr. Henry Smith, St. Jerome, Que.,
says: "For upwards of a year 1 was
a victim of rheumatism in a most
painful form. The trouble was located in my legs and for a long time 1
w^as so bad that I could not walk.
The suffering which I endured can
only bc imagined hy those who have
been similarly afflicted. Doctors'
treatment did not help me and then 1
began trying other remedies, hut with
no better results. Finally I was advised to try Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills,
and although I had begun to lose
faith in medicine 1 finally decided to
give the pills a trial. I am very
grateful now that 1 did so, for after
taking eight boxes of thc pills the
trouble completely disappeared. I
was free from pain and could walk
as well as ever 1 did in my life. 1
have since taken the pills occasionally as a precautionary measure, and

Ask For Prohibition
Letter to the Editor
Editor Courtenay Review
The time for civic elections is
drawintr near, and the only way
for the citizens of Courtenay to
stop present administration from
playing shuttlecock with the prosperity of the city is to elect a new
aldcrnianic board. For the sake of
this fair city of ours let us have a
clean cut business administration.
What the City needs is a business
council, men of foresight; initiative
and of large vision. Look how the
present council has wasted its time
like a lot of chattering school boys
whilst the probings of the big problems are too large for this council
to handle. The city has suffered , enterprises have been stunted
capital has been driven away, How
often has the muddling, interfering
policy of the present administration
got the city in trouble. The citizens of Courtenay, at the forthcoming election should show their
disapproval Jof the hypocritical
playing to the gallery, this muddle
and this farce by electing a rea
business council. Only in this
way can Courtenay hope to gain
its reputiton as a progressive, wideawake business city.
Yours for a clean cut business administration. How will this bunch
of Alderman would look in khaki.
London, Dec. -���.���The "lid'' is
being tilted by the saloonkeepers
in England that the liquor dealers
themselves, fearing this continued
winking at the closing time may
advance the interests of prohibition
have launched a movement for a
more rigid enforcement of the law.
It is proposed that any violation
of the regulations will result in
suspension of licenses until the end
DeS-r7 of the war- Another Proposal is
that a second violation of the law
be punished by imprisonment and
the offender be debarred from further employment in the liquor
In Birmingham, tbe liquor interests have organized a vigilant
police service of their own to see
that the law is not violated,
Tbe Clyde Shipbuilders' Feder-
ation responding to the request of
the Board of Trade to consider the
steps necessary to accelerate the
production of merchant vessels, declares that the first essential step is
the immediate and total prohibition
of the sale ot liquor applied to all
clases. The meeting considered
that the government should require
the nation to submit the sacrifices.
