As a general rule subscribers
to the Review are prompt in

to forget that it costs .something

that they liquidate iheir indebtedness as soon a > they cau find it
convenient to do _o. If they
owe two 01 three years and feel
thev cannot afford to pay it all
al the present time, surely they
cau arrange to pay at least half

We had hoped and believed this

It would serve us right if the offer

Clements in plain terms told certain
malcontents that it would be ;f

"You will have lo take vour choice

I oid Eastling considered a moment.
"Well, what do vou propose to do?"
he said.
"In the first place, 1 ask you to retract your accusation*, which have

Lord Eastling, who had been looking at the table-cloth, met his brother-
in-law's eyes steadily.

true how is il you consented to her
remaining w ilh me?"
"I couldn't help myself. Women
are such fools" said the young man
He was frank, at any rale. Paul
raised his eyebrows.

"The position is a very difficult
one," he said.
It was all llic more difficult, indeed,
by reason of the fact thai he believed
himself to be in the 'aine room, not

two of his friends, who might he his
"I admit that. But your attitude is
illogical, however you take it."
"1 dare say il is," said Lord Eastling, flushing. "You want something
more than logic to deal with a rascal
who lias wormed himself into your

"You arc not very civil," commented
The other was silent, and Paul,
making little rings with the smoke of
his cigarette, went on lazily:
"Thc worst if it is, I don't quite
know how to satisfy you lhal you are
making a fool of yourself, since reason is thrown away upon you."

Conservation and Thrift

Conservation is thrift. Perhaps it

'.he country, He impoverishes il. Jlt-
iicious investment makes the country
richer. It means production and pro-
iuction that adds to llic capital of the
nation; production that means pro-
ijress and advancement; that leads lo
jreatness. When the war broke out
-ily dwellers rushed lo purchase
necessities in large quantities, fearing
-i rapid advance in prices. That was
sot conservation, preservation, or
wise investment, It provoked the
.cry evil that it was desired to avert.
It was wane. Scavengers state that
'.he amount of perishable produce lhat
was subsequently thrown out with the
garbage was tremendous, Thus an
rra that 'should have started with con-
tervation and thrift commenced with

had been done and the effect lingered.

Conservation, or thrift, or both, is

ilierc is no manner in which both can
be better exercised than in the household and in personal habits. Care in

How  Germany  Has  Tried  to Eliminate France as a European
("ine of lhe German aims in this
war was to eliminate France as a
European power. The first attempt
was foiled by the battle of lhe Maine.
The second attempt was foiled by
the defeat of the attempt to break
Pie French, British, and Belgian
line and march to Calais. The third
attempt was foiled by the heroic, defence of Verdun.
If the attempt had been successful,
il was hoped that France would have
become a mere vassal of Germany,
like Austria,'Turkey, and Bulgaria.
The lasl attempt was made iu a spirit
of revenge. if France would not!
submit,  France  must  be  smashed.
France has played hor own parti
with magnificent heroism, and has
been loyally helped by her allies. Thus
a great work has be, n done, not only

Our Dominion member, Mr. H. S. Clements is a fighter for

at this juncture it is worth repeating, viz,���
Ottawa, Jan, 31, 1916.
Dear Idiens: ���
I have received yours of the 22nd iust. aud heartily agree
with tbe sentiments expressed. I have long fought against
and objected to Companies, as they are allowed to organize,
especially in B, C. with the vast amount of Watered Stock,
thereby robbing the small individual subscriber. Personally,
1 would not invest a dollar in any company with any Watered
Stock whatsoever, and if this were carried out it would be an
incentive and a piotectiou to the ordinary workingman, and
otherwise; for the fullest protection for his money invested,
and a boon to the province generally.
With the vast amount of raw materials of all kinds in B, C.
and with a proper organization of healthy industries, it should
in the near future, bring B, C, by far the paramount province
of the Dominion. The suggestions have aud always wi!l have
my utmost support.
Truly yours
H. S. Clements,
The consensus of opinion throughout Comox-AUin is that
Mr, Clements' pixsent seat is safe for him so long as he de-
.' ires to hold it,
It is possible to find a solution  for the problem  of dealing
wiih the Watered Stock Co. sharks.    In my view the German
system is what we should aim for.    With  them   there is no
such thing as Watered Stock, its nominal   capital   being  the
actual capital, and any intangible assets are wiped out of  un-
declured profits,    The Companies are controlled bv managers
and not by a Hoard of directors, and the whole of the.mploy-
1 es share the profits,
Until the question of Industries is decided upon, the  Agri-
ilturnl Credit Department should pause before  loaning any
more money to enable the farmers to produ.e more, otherwise
llpply will exceed the demand at remunerative prices, especially if thousands of returned soldiers are trained for the
laud -and the borrowers will be unable to pay the capital boi-
.  rowed or meet the interest charges a.s they become due.
We need a Business government composed of piactical business men free from patronage. I wrote the Attorney General
Hon. W.J. Bowsers few weeks ago suggesting that he should
include ill his portfolio a Government legal prosecutor to deal
with frauds, same a.s iu Euglaud, but he threw the proposition
down,giving as bis reason that il his department had lo go into the merits of all casts it would be necessary for his staff to
b. verv materially enlarged, in fact, create an unworkable
condition. Isn't this conclusive evidence that the Hon. Bowser knows in his own mind that there are such a lot of crooks
and thieves who take a chance of getting rich quick, which
the crude state of the 13 C. Joint Stock Co. laws enables them
in do, and those defrauded have not the money .'to prosecute,
that the whole of the barrister's aud K, C's, now located in
the province wouldn't be sufficient to handle them, also, additional courthouses would have to built to try the cases.
Lastly, what we badly need is a "Canadian John Bull"
newspaper run on similar lines to that under Horatio
Hotponiley'H Editorship, which exposes frauds and prevents
ui my being perpetrated for fear of exposure. Our newspaper
pioprietors seem chary about giving verbatim or even a brief
nopsis of the crooked cases which come before the Victoria
and Vancouver courts,    1 guess politics has something to   do

Prohibition Orator
Makes Many False
Winnipeg Labor Leader Emphatically Denies Statements Made
by W. I). Bnylev
Real Meaning of   I'
to Organized
with this. like everything else.
W, Idieiu
Mnny false statements were made
by Mr, W. D, Hayley,   a so-called
Labor Leader of Winnipeg, during
his recent luiir of the   province  in
behalf of the   People's  Prohibition
Party.    A denial was   not  entered
to these statenitllts at the time because it was thought   desirable   to
nail these falsehoods in such a convincing way as to show the working
men of B, C. in a conclusive  manner that the campaign oratory and
literature of Mr.   Bay ley  was not
trustworthy.    This evid:nce is now
at hand, and should   be   read   by
every   workingman   of   B.C.    It
outlines in   a   convincing manner
the lengths   of  wliicli   Prohibition
orators and writers have gone in an
effort to swing  the  workingmen's
vote of B. C. in favor of the   Pro-
h it ion Act.
The campaign of falsehood and
misleading statements which has
been carried on among the working-
men of B. C, by the Prohibitionists
can only be excused by the fact
that they realize that the condemnation of the B. C. Prohibition Act
by such strong labor organizations
as the Trades and Labor Councils
of Vancouver, Victoria, New west-
minster and Prince Rupert outlines
a position which it is difficult to
attack bv fair methods.
One of Mr.   Bayley's statmenls,
made from the platform  wliile 011
the Coast, and   uow   framed   itito
literature which is being circulated
by the Prohibitionists, is to the effect that he personally offered to
help the agent of the Battenders
Union in Winnipeg to find employment after   Manitoba  went  dry,
He was told   that   the  bartenders
were all fixed, and that  the agent
of the Union had gone back to his
old Job with the Bartender's Union
The bartenders were tbe only trade
that were   really   affected by  the
Prohibition Act, aud   all  of them
had gone to work at other   trades.
A copy of this statement and the
Prohibition campaign literature was
sent to Mr.   F.   McGill,   Business
agent for the bartenders union   at
Winnipeg.   Immediately upon this
receipt Mr. McGill  seut   a   reply
which brand, the statement as ab
solutely false.    In direct deuial of
Mr. Bayley's statement   his   letter
reads as follows: ���
'I am only to. pleased to get at
one of them fakers who are all the
time trvitig to exploit the labor
man when they thiuk they cau get |
away with it. The statement of
Mr. Btiyley that he offered to get
me a job is untrue, as is his stale
ment that I am working for the
Barbers' Union. I have not work-
since I lost my position as business
agent of the Bartenders' Union,
Juue 1st. The balance of two
hundred and eigbtv-two being
placed out of employment."
with reference to the attitude of
Manitoba Prohibitionists tJward the
men employed in the  liquor trade,
Mr, McGill savs that   during   the
Prohibition   campaign   the Social
Service Council   laid   greal   stress
on the handsome manner in wliicli
they would   provide   employment
for this class of labor,  should   the
workingnien support the Prohibition   Act.    After   tbe    Prohibition
Act passed however, the  members
of the Cotiucil evidently forgot their
promises, for they have done absolutely nothing to assist these   men
in securing   v 0 k,    The situation
with reference to these   men   Mr.
McGill   describes   as    deplorable.
Over 500 clerks w-re   thrown  out
of work when the Manitoba liquor
stores were closi'd,   and   with   all
these men looking for employment
.the position of the  bartender   was
.such a** placed him  at   a   decided

more real benefit will he had if the

Middle-Europe, a vrrcui and continuous area of trade from the Xorlh Sin
lo the Persian Gulf, and comprising,

would languish, and the German fleet,
which must be carried on the shoulders oi her merchant shipping, would
become    water-logged.   All of    Germany's    allies  are, al  best, countries
ol low wage-rate, and a Zollverein so
composed would be, so far as economic  trade is concerned, litllc more

And over against such a Middle-
Europe enclave there will stand the
great trading countries of Europe,
Asia, Africa, and America, that have
scaled wilh lhc blood of their free
citizens iheir covenant of war, a covenant which will hold against the unrepentant and uncivilized Teuton

countries that have learned lo iheir

And what hope can there be for

Organized Ag*ri.ul(ure
France Provides for the Organization
of thc Farming Population
A decree of the minister of agriculture in France   provides    for the organization of the farming population
in every rural commune in the republic,    A  commune correspond*  to our
I township.    In  each  commune     there
! has been established under ihe decree
jan agricultural committee consisting
of fanners who arc elected by themselves.    The minister's object  was to
I create "a permanent  body  composed
[of lhc pick of the farmers belonging
lo each rural commune, which body
shall be lhc centre of action and regulate the general activity."    The committees    elected consist  of 5, 7 or C
men, according to the population of
thc district.      The body is entrusted
with the general organization of fanning operations and ihe overseeing of
lhe cultivation  of the land.      Farms
owned by soldiers who cannot  culti-
'vate them arc managed by lln   com-
i mittcc, if necessary.    The committees
really  are     agricultural     syndicates,
similar to the    co-operative   agricultural  socielics  which  are doing  good
[work elsewhere abroad  and iu parts
of America.
Even before thc war French agriculture  was  strongly  organized     and
remarkably prosperous.    Under    the
new decree  il  will  lie   more   efficient
[and productive.    In her crisis France
has shown a quickness and logicalncss
'of mind, a power oi imagination ami

and will which arc the admiration of
Iall fair observers.   She has manifested

speakers, you credit Mr. Stewart
wiih saying "that when he gets to
Victoria he will have every civil
servant fired who helped to elect
his opponent or drove him about in
the government car," This is a
mis-statement of facts. Stewart
criticised 1'ooley's actions 111 Ks
quimault in threatening Dominion
Government laborers with immediate dismissal if they did not resign
from tlie Liberal Association and
said, "the actions of these mtu
were nothing compared to road
superintendents driving conservative candidates around the country
in government cars and it he was
sent to Victoria lie would see that
civil servants took no part in politics."

Oh, lads of mine,
Two with brown eves and one wilh
And each one's nature sepnra'e,
But altogether true.
Will they return?
The blue, blue skies
The bursting  bloom,  the  flashing
The life of earth is all renewed.
Can death be in the spring?
Will they return .���
The roll of cirutii,
The marching feet beat as my he 111
The crowd tint cheers, but throng 1
my tears
I cannot see them come,
Will they retur.i?
God-speed! God-speed!
A warm, warm clasp,  a "last,   last
Tears must not fall tho'   eyes may
But oh, the parting pang is this,
Will ihey return?
