A Silent Salesman

salesman sels of motion pictures that
show exactly how the machines work.
The salesmen cany small, light mo-*

lhe office of the customer. A blank
wall .serves for a screen. Since the
motion picture is independent of tho
seasons, the salesman can show a
harvester at work in winter or a
seeder or planter in the fall. The
films also help to overcome the instinctive opposition that many buyers
of machinery and equipment display
toward new apparatus and new methods. Such men will not listen to the

The Allies' offensive, active on
every front, continues, there being
of course a certain amount of sway-

success. The advance continues,
slowly, steadily but always moving
onwards, The Russians by virtue
of their huge iirmies, longer battle
fronts and less heavily fortified buttle lines, are making the most
marked progress, punctuated by
huge casualties on lhe purl of the
Teutons. Ou the other hand, the
llritish, French and Belgians, keeping inviolate the territory they hold
and watching for every opportunity
to advance, are inflicting considerable losses upon lhe enemy
The advances recently
not merely for the sake
mane were
of the terri
tory recovered, nor were they only
for the purpose of releiving the
pressure upon Verdun. We think
that they will ultimately lead to the
giving up by the Germans of certain portions of the front at present
held by them in order to the better
defend the rest. The Allies on the
western front are acting the part of
the anvil, while the Hessians can
be likened tothe sledgehammer. In
Scratch a German and you find
a spy, every time and all the time.
We are promised more deeds of
' (rightfulness " should the Allies'
offensive be fruitful. It is therefore all the more necessary to watch
every German in Canada.

It seems very evident thai any
revival in real estate in British Columbia will conic, not from Europe,
but from the development of ihc
natural resources of the province.
While immigration from Europe
will be greater than it has been
since the war begun, it will not attain to prewar dimensions, the
reason being that labor will be in
great request for sonic years for the
reconstruction of that which has
been destroyed, and for the development of industry generally. Capital too, will stay at home In
other words, those with real estate
holdings in B, C. will have lo aid
the further development of natural
resources if they wish to realize ���

The second regular meeting of
tlie City Council was held on Monday evening. There was jus! a
quorum present. After tin1 inin*
ti'cs had been read ami confirmed
the clerk read the following coill-
From E. & N. railway asking
disposition of the matter ol drain
from their building. Tlie Council
decided to have the drain put in
ami gave instructions to have the
tile ordered.
A letter from ex-Aid. Johnston
re the Electric Light question stated that he was of the opinion   that
the city did not agree to maintain  vyas not quite ^satisfactory
the street lights,   and  that  no  repairs had been paid for-
Ivx-AId Robertson sent a letter
staling that he was of the opinion
that the council were to pay for renewals, Ex-Alds, Kirkwood,
Croinptou, and Leighton also signed a statement to the same   effect.
Mr. Sawford, secretary of the
Electric Light Co. wrote that the
city were liable for $i per month
for each 350 Watt lamp and 50c
per month foi each 100 watt lamp
whether electricial energy were
used or not and that under the agreement with  Mr.   Peterson,   the

and will not pay any bills for street
lights a'ter the date of eti'ting off
The ('ily Cleik again asked the
Council for a raise in ."alary amounting to #15 per month which
was not granted, the matter being
again laid over for another meeting.
Aid, McKenzie said $50 was quite
enough for the job. Times do not
call for an increase in salary at
present. Aid. Aston maintained
that the City Clerk's work should
be done by someone who had other
business on the side
Aid. McKenzie said the work
at all
times, and wanted to know what
D. Cudmore got for acting as noxious weed inspector. He gets $3
per day when looking after lots iu
fected with noxious weeds and cutting thistles on the streets. The
Clerk temarked that he could not
be i the office and chasing around
looking for persons with noxious
weeds on their premises.
Aid, McKenzie���"It's up to you
fellows, I'm not in favor of increasing the salary."
Aid. Anderton said the matter of
a raise had been brought up several
times : n   it was time that one thing
city were bound to give one month or another was done.   The   Clerk
notice of intention to discontinue
using current. This has not been
done and the company could continue to bill the city as above.
The Council passed a resolution
saying that they did not take over
the   Peterson    agreement      They
should be told distinctly told that
the salary could not be raised: He
also thought that 3 hours in the
morning would be quite enough for
most of the time except when taxes' seven
were being paid.
Aid  Aston said the City
hours should be 0 lo 12 iu the
morning. If he wanted more salary
let liini apply to the police commissioners for an increase from   them.
Aid. McKenzie "aid the taxes
were being held back either by his
worship the Mayor or the Police
Commissioners. No report hud
ever been received from Hit Police
Commissioners- The Council was
just some kind of a joke, They
argee to do something one night
and countermand il the next.
Aid. Anderton wanted to know
who was to blame.
The Clerk said he had taken
action against a peddler. The
magistrate phoned the Mayor ���nd
the Mayor ordered the proceedings
stopped. In the mallei of licenses
there had been no prosecutions yet
One had paid $5 and promised to
pay the balance next mouth,
Aid. McKenzie- ' Do you think,
I you had n  clear   case  against  the
I peddlar  and were doing your duty
to tlle city when you  illowei
be called off by the Mayor?"
Aid. Anderton "The Mayor was
liable to an action for criminal interference, Wasn't it your duty to
report the matter to the council.
"I don't know. ' replied the
Aid, Auderton wanted an explanation irom the Mavor, and the application of the City Clerk foi an
increase in salary to be laid over in

that $65 was not paid. $10 was un-
collectable and of the balance about
half had agreed to pay, leaving 4

B.C. Prohibition
Act Does Not
Measure  Provides  for  Free
and Unrestricted Importation of Liquor from
the   Outside
The Ii. C, Prohibition Act, on
which th�� Electors of British Co*
lliinlii.'i will be asked lo rec-idcr
their opinions at the poll, is nut a
prohibition act iu auv sense ol the
term. So contrary is it to the
principles of prohibition Hint prohibitionists '.heinselvi's are freely
criticizing the measure aud the man
wlio is neither "wet" or "dry" is
asking ihe pointed question as to
what will he secured bv the bill
save the building up of industry
and trade at points outside the province.
All of which goes to show that it
is advisable that the elector who
desires to vote intelligently on the
subject .should carefully examine
th_ Act before election day,
The "Wide Open" clause of the
Act, Clause 57, reads in part a.s
"Nothing in this Act shall
be construed to interfere
" (a) With the right of any
person to import from without the Province liquor for
bona fide use in his private
dwelling house."
This clause means that any resident of the province is allowed to
purchase all the liquor he desires
just as often as he wishes, without
any control or regulation by the
government, so long; a.s he sends
his money outside the province for
his supply.
Tins clause would, for instance,
allow any person to place a standing order witli any liquor dealer
outside the province for a weekly
or monthly shipment of whiskey to
b. delivered to his dwelling. Ou
such an order the supply of liquor
would reach him constantly a.s long
as he met the bills. In the lace of
such conditions lhe question may
well be asked "Is this Prohibition?"
In the pre.imitiary campaign in
connection with the bill and at the
piesent time prohibitionists have
made a grand stand play, both on
the platform and through their
piopaganda literature of the drunkard and the Hghtful evils which
accompany drinking. Yet, in the
bill for which thev are admittedly
entirely responsible they have done
absolutely nothing to lessen the
consumption of liquor in Hriiish
Columbia, the sole effect of thc
legislation being to send money
spent for liquor outside the province. Incidentally it may be
mentioned that the drunkard who
already has the taste and the habit
is the man most likely to be lhe
first lo take advantage of the privilege to buy outside and. should the
Act pass, would thereafter have liquor iu quantity iu his home
whereas he now takes his liquor by
the glass. As the small boy would
say "What's the use?"
The great question lying
behind the referendum vote
on the Prohibition Question
is whether the regulated sale
of liquor under Government
license and control is not bet-
I ter than the unregulated and
unrestricted importation of
liquor from outside points-
Readers dewing literature or information concerning the Prohibition Act may secure same by writing to Merchant's Protective Association, Room .4, Canada Life
Building, Vancouver, B. C.

CANADA from her abundance can help supply thc Empire's needs,
and this must be a comforting thought for those upon whom the
heavy burden of directing thc Empire's (-.fifth, has been laid. Gain or
no gain thc course before tbe farmers of Canada in .'.s clear as it was
last year���they must produce abundantly in orr'.cr :o meet thc demands
that may be made and I believe this to be especially true in regard to
live stock, the world's suyip'.y of which must be partirmlarly affected in
this vast struggle. Stress and strain may yet be in store for us all
before this tragic conflict is over, but not one of us doubts the issue,
and Canadians will do their duty in the highest s?-ise of that great
word."���HON. MARTIN BURRELL, Minister of Agriculture.
MODERN war is made by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, as
well as by men and by munitions. While war is our first business, it is the imperative duty of every man in Canada to produce all
that he can, to work doubly hard while our soldiers ere in the trenches,
in order that the resources of thc country may not only be conserved, but
increased, for the great struggle that lies before us. ' Work and Save'
is a good motto for War-time," -SIR THOMAS WHITE, Minister
nf Finance,
WHAT IS NEEDED? these in particular���
We must feed ourselves, feed our soldiers, and help feed the Allies.   The need is greater in
1916 than it was in 1915.   The difficulties are greater, the task is heavier, the
need is more urgent, the call to patriotism is louder���therefore be
thrifty and produce to the limit.
