was a guest of the order, being accompanied on his visit here by Mrs.

MAKING EXTENSIONS
Manner Mcintosh of the Federal
group of claims at Skookumchuck, Is
getting the property In shape to con-
tlaue development during the coming
winter months.
A t-ompnr-HHor ls being Installed and
Improvements made to the bulldlnga
already theje, as well aa new bulldlnga
being erected.
Mr. Mcintosh reports the outlook at
the property, where some rery high
grade native copper was found Mm*
time ago, Ib very satisfactory.
Another very enthusiastic prohibition meeting was held ut tho Edison
Theatre on Thursday evening of last
week. The hall was vory well JUled,
and in spite of repeated invitations, no
speaker for the opposing Interests
could be Induced to come out and take
the platform, a fact thut seemed to
presage well for election day.
Rev. R. W. Lee acted as chairman
for tbe evening, and the speakers
were Mr. W. M. Armstrong, principal
of tbe high school here, and Rev. J. P.
Westman, of Nelson. Tho former
presented the prohibition Issue in the
clear, cold light of lntellectualism,
speaking particularly from the standpoint of an educator. He mado out a
strong case, and was very well received. Mr. Westman covered the ground
more in the way of combatting the arguments of the opponents of prohibition, and was exceedingly forceful.
The Herald regrets that in the haste
of getting to press two days ahead of
ita usual schedule It ls not possible to
deal fully with them.
Another big mass meeting, thc final wlndup in the campulgn. Is to take
place this evening at the Edison, commencing at 8.30 sharp. Tlie speakers are to be Dr. Eber Crummy, M.A-,
fD.Sc., D.D., of Moose Jaw, Mr. O. J.
'Spreull, Rev. R. W. Lee, and others.
Dr. Crummy is In the city in connection witli the Methodist anniversary
services, and the board of that church
very generously released Dr. Crummy
in order that he might throw his Intellectual weight ln the scales for prohibition, instead of having him fulfil
lecture engagement for the church. |

Word has been received from i

the two convicted hold-up men,
Pete Lazuk and Dan Urick, who
held up and robbed the workers!
in a lumber camp near Skookumchuck some time ago, and!
who were arrested and given a

at Orand Forks Sunday night.
How the men escaped from
Provincial Policeman Spiller
of Fernle and the officer accompanying him ts not known, but
the train arrives at Orand Forks
at about 2 a.m., and it is possible this late hour and the fact
that very few people are around

the two desperadoes to make
a successful get-away.
THESE HUNTERS BELIEVE
IN SUPPLYING THE PROOF
HERALD ISSUES AHEAD
OF TIME THIS WEEK
BECAUSE OF ELECTION
For the reason that the Herald desires to make a last appeal
to the electors to stand by their
guns and support Prohibition
tomorrow, the Herald Is Issuing on Tuesday, October 19.
We consider the Issue of sufficient Importance to keep the
electors advised and would call
especially to their attention the
encouraging message from the
headquarters at Vancouver on
this page today.
Vote for FroMMUan.
Nothing Irritates a real Ilvo HitortH*

LADIES* AUXILIARY
Large 'Audience" Listens Atten-
tiveiy to Outline of Policies
oi' tbe Liberal Party
A very large audience, which titled
every 6eat in the Auditorium theatre
Monday evening, listened very attentively to the addresses delivered outlining the policy ot the Dominion Liberal party by Hon. W. L. Mackeuzie
King, leader of that party in Uie Dominion and Messrs. \V. C. Kennedy,
M.P. for North Essex and Mr. Ernest
Lapo-inte, M.P. lor Quebec.
The party arrived here in a special
coach attached to the regular east-
bound train Monday ovculug, and only
it few of tlie locnl Liberals seemed to
be on hand to greet them.
While here Mr. Lapolnte received a
telegram to the effect that his sou
was very ill, aud he muy Uud it uecee-
sary to leave the party at Lethbrldge.
It la hoped Mr. Lapolnte will get
more encouraging newB at Lethbrldge.
Hon. Dr. King, minister of works
in tlte Oliver government of B.C., representing Cranbrook constituency,
acted aa chairman of the meeting, and
besides the visitors on the Btagc were
several local liberals, among them being Mayor Genest .and Alderman Mackinnon.
Messrs. Kennedy and Lapolnte preceded Hon. Mr. King with brief addresses, Mr. Lapolnte probably eliciting a greater amount of applause from
lhe audience than any of the speakers
because'of tbe numerous anecdotes he
injected iuto his talk and the forceful
manner In which he attempted to drive
home hia arguments.
Mr. Kennedy's remarks were very
brief, but he got a good reception and
le a good speaker.
W(hen Mr. King wae introduced and
advanced to the front of the platform,
he was greeted with prolonged applause. He, as did the previous speakers, took occasion to throw some nice
little bouquets in the direction of the
chairman, and these must have mad*
the Hon. Dr. King feel good In view
of the fact that a provincial election
appears ln the offing.
Mr. King Bald tbat on entering the
theatre he had been handed an Invitation from the Ladles Auxilary of the
B.R.T. to bj jreFent with his -colleagues at a oanr-e they were giv!n(
..ml tbey would accept, and altho-jg.'
the three consumed about three hou:--
turn, the pMly following tbe meting entered into the spirit of the
danco.
Hon. Mr. King also said that this,
tbe last of their meeting, in B-C, in
his opinion waa Ue place to mention
tbe appreciation of his colleagues and
himself for the very cordial receptions
they had received everywehere. They
had spoken to over 20,000 people in
B.C. and had found that the bolshevist
greeting they were warned they might
receive waB absent; they had been
very cordially reselved everywhere,
and were deeply grateful; they could
better deal with Western problems in
parliament.
He said that he had been Informed
that his audience was made up largely of railroad men, and it waa
them he promised some data of Interest la'.cr on.
He regarded the 1911 election as
the last real test of public opinion ln
Canada, and referred to the large
number of first voters at that election
who had now attained seasoned maturity, and also the large number of
men from overseas. A large number of foreign be.ni on the prairies
had been refused the vote at the 1917'
election, and a considerable group similarly treated in thla province. He
referred also to the Important new body of electors, the women. Altogether
theae elements constituted largely a
new electorate, and it waB the duty
of the government to give this new electorate a voice.
He .pointed out the fundamental differences between the National Liberal and Conservative party and Conservative groups, and the great progressive groups, among whom he enumerated the Liberals, the Farmers, the
Ijibor party and the G. W. V. A. He
defined the difference by stating that
these latter groups chose their lead-
era and decided their policies by Do-
mlnton-wlde conventions, while Premier Melghen war tht* choice of his
/•Jf^f'as represented in parliament.
Tho Liberal .party, ho regretted to say,
had not always lived up to Its name,
but the good intent wan always there,
and it always came back. The Melghen government was not popularly chosen, and therefore waa usurping the

LOSING VOTE
FAILURE TO VOTE WEDNESDAY MAY LOSE YOU
PRIVILEGE LATER
BEST TO BE ON SAFE
SIDE IN ANY EVENT
No Definite Ruling Yet Received from Attorney.General as
far as Can be Ascertained
The Herald's advice to electors is
to vote in the plebiscite election on
Wednesday, October 10.
The question has beeu raised &*
to whether a voter falling to vote on
October 20, would be stricken from the
present list. This list It Is generally
understood will be used lu Uie Provincial flection, which from all reports
available will be hold very soon, possibly tho latter part of November or
the tlrst week in December.
A recent ordor-in-council published
in tlie Provincial tiaxett« gives the
election on October 20th the same status as a provincial election for members of the legislature, and here is
where the joker comes in. if one
falls to vote in the election on the
plebiscite, and r. court of revision is
'..eld before tho provincial election
take-; place — and this is a certainty
soon — that tbe voter failing to vote
could be stricken from the list.
The elections act defines an election
as "an election for members of the
Provincial Legislature." But the or-
der-in-councll supplements this and
therefore, as above stated, such act-
Ion in marking from the list delinquents in the preesnt contest could
be teken.
Tbe present act is very rigid In
that electors cannot be approached on
behalf of any issue or candidate on
polling day.
Voting will Lake place between the
hours of eight a.m., and seven p.m.
Rev. R. w. Lee has been appointed
the agent for the prohibition party,
and L. P. Sullivan Is acting for the
moderationists.
WHERE TO TOTE
Returning Officer T. M. Roberts has
announced the following polling places;

pie were not consulted In Its establishment, a certain Influence that dared not ra'j.« its head because tt was
not a great social force, was consulted. This was the invisible government, consisting ot the great interests.
In the last few days, Mr. King said,
there had been a revelation of at least
one instance of an Interest that waa
able to Influence an agency of the government, this reference being to the
recent order by the commerce board
prohibiting the Importation of sugar
from across the American border.
Could a board that was really In touch
with parliament so aid a combine and
act against the social interests of tbe
country. Mr. King asked? It quenched the first gleam °' hope in the matter of a lowered cobI of living, and thin
was only the last of a series of steps
showing the government to be really
profiteers, according to Hr. King, Instead of being tbe protectors of the
people.
The party to which the Liberals
were opposed, he said, was not the
old Conservative party. Its new name
was used to cover the special groups
welded together by special Interests.
He urged that ttie various groups opposed to the union government, all ot
whom had something In common,
ought to unite on election day Instead
of splitting their vote and thus permitting the government to retain Its
position.
What waa true of the sugar situation, Mr. King charged, was true also regarding wearing apparel, boots
and shoes, and other articles of common use. One member of the board
of commerce who had resigned had
Bald that the government did not want
a remedy. He had been on tho board

CRANBROOK, BRITISH COLUMBIA
THURSDAY,  OCTOBER 21, 1920
EVERYONE'S DUTY
To a few it may seem Bome-
wbat drastic to threaten to drop
a person's name from the voters' list in tho event of their
failing to exercise the fran-
chise to-morrow, lt may look
like but one step removed from
compulsory voting. Hut it Is
not likely that any hardship
will be created by this ruling.
The only people who are likely
to be stricken from tbe lists
are those who from indifference
or laziness do uot go to the
polls. For those who can show
a legitimate reason, such as
sicKness, disability, or other
thoroughly real, genuine alibi,
it may reasonably be expected
that some means will be devised whereby their names will be
maintained ou the lists. Tbe
idea underlying this new prov
lsion of the elections act is un
doubtedly to keep the lists ai
far as possible purged from the
dead timber that is at the same
time a useless encumbrance and
ln some cases a temptation to
enter upon some questionable
electioneering.
Vote early. Don't wait to be
taken to the polls in somebody's
car. It is nothing to be proud
of, that one has to be taken to
vote in someone else's car.
We ought to bave enough pride
in our citizenship to want to exercise itB highest function without being solicited to drive to
the polls, far less demanding lt.
There are plenty of people who
by reason of infirmity or age
can justly expect conveyance
to tbe polls, but for the average active voter to look for the
privilege means tbat someone s
good nature is going to be presumed upon to pamper the voters' vanity.
The position the government
has taken in declaring the day
of the plebiscite a public holiday cuts the ground from under
a number of people wbo might
otherwise have said that they
did not have a chance to vote.
Of the fourteen hundred odd voters registered in Cranbrook,
there ought to be at least twelve
hundred go to tbe polls to-morrow.
TOMORROW'S VOTE
What answer is B. C. going to
aend to the prairie provinces
following the vote on the plebiscite? The eyes of the entire
nation are on B.C., waiting to
catch the first word as to the result of the voting.
What is the reason B. C. waB
called upon to vote five days
sooner than the other provinces
on tbe liquor question? Has it
ever occurred to the people gen
erally that there may be some
sinister suggestion ln regard to
the fixing of tbe plebiscite date?
What reason prompted tbe government to set October 20th aa
the date when B.C. should vote,
when three or four other prov- ]
inces are voting on other phases of the same question five
days later?
lt is no secret that the prohibitionists tried to get tbe B.C.
vote set for the same day as in
the other provinces. There did
not seem to be any good reason
why lt should not be so. The
simple fact of the matter ls that
other influences were brought to
bear upon the government, and
the government was compelled
to concede the point.
The reason why those opposing the present prohibition act
would desire things bo is perfectly clear. Convincing evidence is also furnished here of
the presence of a big driving
force behind the "moderationists" in this campaign. What
difference could it possibly bave
made to au ordinary man or
woman, or group of ordinary
men and women, such as the
Moderation League claims it is
pure and simple?
It was not the Moderation
League that set the date for the
plebiscite in reality, but the
whisky ring of the province.
Their line of reasoning was that
since prohibition has to some
extent been brought into disrepute in this province, It stood
some chance of repeal. So far
as the prairie provinces are concerned there has been little
doubt, even in the minds of the
liquor men, that the bone dry
vote will carry things. Therefore, they said, let us concentrate on B.C., where we stand
a better chance of success.
If by chance the government
Bale proposal does go through
In this province, the liquor Interests are planning to make
the utmost possible use of the
psychological effect such an an-
noucement might have on the
prairie provinces. One can im
agine how hot the wires would
be kept during the intervening
five days expatiating on the glo*
rlouB news.
Present indications, however,
seem to show that there is quite
a sporting chance that this
piece of juggling is likely to react boomerang fashion on the
heads of its authors, and that
the word which will go forth
from this province will be that
B.C. is going to keep marching
abreast of the times by refusing
to take up with the shapeless
proposal which has been paraded around as "government con-
troi" m
WILL IT CEASE?
What good reason is there for
supposing that the bootlegging
evil will be mitigated to any appreciable extent under the proposed government sale plan of
dispensing liquor? Is the idea
to place the government stores
,so thickly through the province
that there will be one of them
at everybody's elbow, so to
speak? If so there will soon
arise conditions worse than at
present ten times multiplied.
On the other hand, If the government stores are only located every so often, is the bootlegger not going to have just as
good a chance of plying his Illicit business as now? If government sale carries the privilege of importation will not be
interfered with, but few people
are likely to bother with importation when the government takes to dispensing. The only
difference so far as bootlegging
Is concerned that under government sale conditions
the way of the transgressor
would be come easier. There
is one remedy and one only for
the bootlegger, and that ls a
good stiff Jail sentence for the
second offence, without the option of a fine.
"DR. JEKYLL AND MR.
HYDE."
"Rossland, B.C.,
"October 18, 1920.
"Will A. Elletson,
"Cranbrook, B.C.
"Liberal financial support given by you to prohibition cause
here, and attitude of «<w;' -
Miner satisfactory.
"Eldred A. Chester."
The above Is a copv of a
telegram received from the president of the prohibition party
at Rossland, to the editor ot tha
Herald, in response to an enquiry sent as to where the Rossland Miner and its editor stood
on the prohibition lsBue.
It should be enough in itself
to put the quietus on the absurd allegation that because the
Rossland Miner carried Moderation League advertising and
the Cranbrook Herald did not,
the editor of the two papers
tried to pass as prohibitionist
here and moderatlonist there.
As the above telegram indicates
the editor of the Miner made no
secret of his favorable attitude
towards prohibition, so the inconsistency argument falls to
the ground because there is
none.
Two reasons contributed to
the fact tbat Moderation League
advertising appeared in one paper and not the other. The first
Is that at RoBsland a contract
was entered into for advertising with the Vancouver headquarters of the Moderation
League some time ago, before
the proprietor saw fully the necessity of abandoning an attitude of neutrality on the issue
and taking up a stand for prohibition. This contract, by tbe
way, was entered upon during
his absence, or it would never
have been accepted, but having
been accepted in good faith, it
did not seem the wisest thing to
repudiate it. The circumstances were fully explained to the
prohibition party at Rossland,
and it is worth noting that no
whisper of inconsistency comes
from that quarter, where it
might be expected if any ground
existed for it.
The second consideration is
that at Rossland there is but
one paper, and here in Cranbrook two. In the mind of the
editor of the Miner and the Herald it would have been doubtful wisdom to have deprived
the Moderationists at Rossland
of their only channel of local
expression, especially as the
prohibition cause bas nothing
lo fear from an onslaught by
"moderation" argument. In
Cranbrook, on the other hand,
we knew perfectly well there
was still an organ left which
could be made the mouthpiece
of the Moderation League, and
more than willing to become so,
Incidentally, it didn't seem to
occur to our perceptive critic
that only two or three weeks
ago another journal published
not a hundred miles from this
city in one and the same Issue
carried both prohibition and
moderation advertising, and declared itself editorially for moderation. And with just as little ground in reality our critic
might have started ln to rail
at its editor for "inconsistency."

Not to be Trusted
When has tlie principle ot Bolshevism yielded to the principle of truth?
A leaf from the book of German im.

the German empire, which never was
given with other Intentions than to
serve the purpose of the1 moment.

Reading is a habit us easily cultivated us dancing nud holds ln a thrall

can show youth more of life than any

Thc Inter-Provlnclitl Highway
Premier Oliver is still being kept
busy explaining and interpreting
what he said at Kamloops with reference to the proposed inter-provincial hlghtwny. His latest statement Is
substantially, ithat he ileally didn't
say anything in particular. All he
was trying to do wns to give the peo-
I le of the district a few kind words,
and he was greatly surprised at the
rumpus caused by his official utterance.
The upshot of his remarks and explanations, especially when they are
read together with those of Hon. Dr.
King subsequently at Nelson, fs that
no semblance of a decision has been
reached as to 'what road will be
built or when it will be built. The
1 rovincial engineer continues to
"gather information". This he does,
apparently, by asking the partisans
of euclt route for their op'ilon of the
other one. Tlie answers are then
carefully tabulated for presentation
to the legislature.
As a result of this process the public has acquired a vague notion that
the one route is burled In perpetual
snow, while the other would have to
consist mostly of trestles. Presumably, both of these statements contain an element of slander. But how
cun the Government possibly reach
a conclusion while subjected to opposing influences of about equal political weight? As long as tbe support™ of the rival routes insist upon
offsetting each other, how can they
expect to get anything done?—Vancouver Sun,
Dr. Bonnell of Fernie,  was hers
today.
CONCERNING   CANADA
Wliere thousands ot farmers have
been cutting the Wheat of the western
prairies lately once roamed countless
numbers of buffaloes. When the Canadian Pacific Railway was being built
across the continent tbe enormous
numbers of these, animals were the
amazement of the workers. Bat that
day Ib gone and now the grain fields
linve taken ttie placo ot the grass covered prairie where the animals' fed In
millions. A few of the wood variety
may still exist ln the tar north, but
tbe buffalo as known In the pioneer
day is virtually extinct except for the
herds in conflenement at tbe government parks in tthe west.
The Walnwrlght herd dates back to
1908 when the federal government
purchased a herd of 600 animals from
a rancher In Montana for $260 each.
At that time the Idea the government
entertained, was to prevent tbe extinction of the great animals, but so
well have they thrived ln captivity
Ihat now the herd numbers about, 6000
head, and there are one tthousand
bulls that can be sold or slaughtered
without endangering the future of the
family. Skins of the bison have become very valuable and at recent fur
sales In Montreal several heads of ths
lordly animals were sold at bugs prices to fanciers. It Is estimated by tbs
government that In a very short time
the herd will become more than self-
supporting, or, In other words, that
the number available for sale each
year will bring sufficient to maintain
the rest of tbe drove. An attempt has
been made with considerable success
to cross the buffalo with Canadian cattle to produce an animal with a great
shaggy skin for robes. The product
Is hardy and large and bear s the name
of cattalo. It ls being raised on a
number of experimental farms.
CURED OF BOLSHEVISM
UNANIMOUS   VERDICT
"Cured of Bolshevism" was tbe un
anlmous verdict of seventy German
workmen who have returned to Swine-
munde, Prussia, from Soviet Russia.
They Were forced to work 1n a factory, given a diet of bread, which
looked like peat and contained chaff
and unmllled grain. They are Jubilant over their escape from the "Boi*
sehvlstic Paradise."

Invest in G P. R
On many occasions during the past year Wo have recommended the purchase of C. P. R. shares.
Whenever the price dropped on the Now York Stock Exchange or the premium on New York funds dropped so the
share could he purchased to yield 7% and over, we advised
purchase.
While the price has advanced In New York recently, the
premium on New York funds has dropped so that at
present prices
C. P. R. Yields Over
Seven per cent.
C. P. R. finances are sound; it has millions in cash and
millions in Victory Bonds in its treasury. It is Canada's
biggest industry and its shares can be safely considered a
Highest Grade
Investment
We can arrange terms so that the purchase price can be
met by monthly payments and we can fill orders for one

"Uvea at the button! of ll well." She

As for play, It Is manifold and unending.
Sproat Lake Is In the heart ef the

A huntress In moecaalnn and velveteens receives you. revolver. Jack-

One day we had a flab adventure.
In outline, Sproat Lake la like the
impress of a giant paw, Tbe middle
digit. Taylor Arm, runs up fourteen
miles to tho mouth of tbe Taylor
Itlver. We packed a lunch-basket,
and, leaving the women at bome, ael
nut early to fish this lonely Inlet
We had a gay farewell. Our wives
came down to the beacb to see we
had everything aboard. Their faith
In their husbands' skill with the rod
was touching—and they were pro-
ralaed fish for noxt day's breakfast
Amid smiles and benedictions we
were off.
Our tackle wu wondrous — tbe
tackle of amateurs always Is. We
soaked to tbe walat hi the chilly
watera of Taylor River. We trolled
with worma and splnnera for fourteen miles. We cut on thla aide
and we cut on that. We curaed, we
prayed. But between the whole
huaeh oi e* we bad Mf et a strike,
never a hlfe.
As the sun dropped the ehfllet
hove in sight. On tbe beach awaiting UB were two figures In white. We
looked Into each others' eyes and
groaned.    .
"Hulloa! Ilulli.ii I"
The cry came Irom u tiny cove.
Three fishermen, swarthy as Indian
braves, heckolied lis. They had tne
most primitive lacklo, a tangle of tin
cans und clothes lines. Hut In the
bottom of their skiff lay n (learning

"We are camping out," Ihey cried,
"and our rulch will go bail on our
hands.     Would you rare for a few f"
There wus no answer but a gulp.
Four pairs of eager bunds went out
end soon five three-pounders end
some smaller fry were sung In - our
basket
"Our luck Is good,' but they'll be
useful up at the timid," we said.
The whllo-clad figures Imd seen ua
now and were waving tholr welcome.'
We answered In kind and held aloft

robbery and one of holding up a train
at the point of a gun.
After deliberating for about an hour
the jury returned a verdict of guilty
against Basoff, and sentence of death

Mining Concerns Asking Government to nianife -Keg-
nliiliiins Now In Force
A telejiram from Victoria says:
J "Changes in tlie preseni regulations
to .provide for a reduction In Provin-
I clal levies In the rase of mining com-
[ ponies were urged upon Hon. Wll Ham
Sloan, Minister of Mines, at a confer-
ence between tbe Minister and representatives of tlie leading mining concerns of Hie Province held on Tuesday, October 12.
j "Among the deputations wore J. J.
Warrpn. president ot the Consolidated
; Mining and Smelting Company of Can-
I ada, Limited, Messrs, Wooster and
i Valentine Quinn, Of the (i ran by Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power
Company, Limited Mr. Marshall, representing tha Brlttania Mining Company and the Helmoiit-Surf Inlet Mining Company Mr. Clarence Cunningham, representing a group of mining
Interests in the Slocan, Mr. Fowlor of
the Bluebell claims, Mr. It. R. Bruce
of the Paradise Mining Company, Invermere and Mr. McPadden of the
Surprise Groups, and others.
"Practically 90 cent, of the active-
pressed for a revision of the Provincial taxation upon mining companlas
under the following two heads:
"An allowance for depletion of ore
through mining operations and reduction in the tax on capital when used
In tho mining Industry wherever the
origin of such capital might be.
"The conference was an Informal
one on a subject which litis been
brought to the attention of the Government on previous occasions. The
Minister promised that full conslder-
aldon would he given by the Government to the representations made, but
no hope that the requests would be
acceded 1o was forthcoming.
"At present, under the existing system of taxation, no allowance Is made
for depletion bf mining properties
through ore mined, though the value
of properties Is decreased to the ex-
ent of what is taken out.
"The regulations make provision for
certain deductions In compiling the
value upon which taxation will be lev-
led, but they do not include the deductions urged by the delegation.
Allowance is made on capital, where
such capital Is raised in tho Province,
but such Is of little or no value to
the mining operators, the bulk of
whose capital comes from outside the
province. It was argued that the tax
upon such outside capital constituted
drawback upon investors who, raiding outside, are yet anxious to assist in the development of the industry
hy investing capital therein. The
delegation urged Hu-t such deduction
should be allowed, no matter where
the capital came from."

MORE CONVENIENT WAY
OF PAYING MLYUKYTAX
TO HE PUT INTO FORCE
Special Stamps to be Issued for
Use of Merchants and Others on -November First
A despatch from Ottawa saye that
under the revised system of collecting the luxury taxes now in force in
Canada, which comes into effect November lst every merchant will bo under license. The special stamps will
bo available for all morchants by the
last day of this month.
The method to be followed, lt is ex-
Plained, will give the Inland Revenue
department a complete check on all
transactions and the collections by
means of stamps will make the op-
ration ot the act much more simple.
Every merchant is to be supplied
with a special machine for cancelling the stamps by perforation, and
merchants will be charged a nominal
license fee of two dollars. They will I
not. however, be required to pay any-;
tiling for tlie perforation machine.
Supplies of the stamps will be available at all banks and also at the various local custom offices so that it
will not be necessary for merchants
to stock up for long periods in advance.
It is pointed out that lit the case of
merchants who persist In ignoring or
evading tJie law regarding the collect-
Ion of luxury tax on goods sold by
them, It will be within the power of
the department to refuse to renew the
license of such merchants, and they
would thus be unable to continue In
business.

SIZING UP CHANCES
AT ELECTION TIME
Practically Certain Tbat When
Turmoil of Referendum Dies
Down Contest Will Come
Following a two weeks' tour
through the Interior, part of which
was made ln company with Hon. T.
D. Patullo, Minister of Lands, Premier Oliver last week paid a flying vis-
It back to Victoria, before, starting
out on another speeclimaklng itinerary, this time centreing his activities
more around his own home constituency. The Premier and the Minister of Lands are Indomitable optimists when It comes to sizing up the
chances of the present administration
in the election contest thnt Is now ln
tho oiling. The Premier expresses
himself as bolng very pleased with
Uie reception tendered to him and his
follengue, and also appreciated the
keen Interest which the residents of
the Interior sections are taking In all
public matters pertaining to the welfare of the province.
The Premier professed to see in
the reception tendered to him an expression of confidence from the electors in the present administration,
and he was convinced, he said, that
tiie record of the government, Its policies and -work during the past four
years, will receive the overwhelming
support of the electors when next the
eovernment makes Its appeal to the
country.
But on Uie Interesting point of Just
when this appeal will be made, the
Premier is as dumb as ever, merely
remarking that he has nothing to say
thereon, and that the Government will
make Its announcement in due
course.
Prohibition was a subject which ls
Interesting the people of the upper
country, the Premier found, and he explained at his meetings the reasons
that Impelled the government at this
time to submit the referendum that Is
being voted on this week—that lt had
been understood there would be another vote taken when the men returned from overseas. In this connection the Premier took pains to
point out tiiat there was no reason
for the belief entertained by some
that fn the event of tbe present ,pro-
hlblon legislation being rejected, any
new legislation to give effeot to government sale of liquor would be some-
ting suggested by the Moderationists.
These people will ln no sense dictate
to te government any form of control, according to the Premier.
Hon. T. D. Patullo scouts the assertion of Mr. w. J. Bowser, leader of
the opposition, that the people arc
tu.d of the present administration,
jort will at the next election, retiri
tlie  Conservative party    to    power.
Whistling in the dark," Is hjv he
airily describes Mr. Bowser's claim. '
"It Is my experience dnrlng the
past four years that every day the
Oliver Govrenment has been growing
In tho .public esteem, and that there Is
not the slightest doubt ln my mind
that when It submits Itself to the electorate again it will be returned by
a large majority," declared the Minister of Lands.
Tho Minister has It gflured out that
the Conservatives have not a ghost
of a chance ln the north country, and
will loBe two seats now held by that
parly ln the dry belt. According to
this prediction, the present small Conservative minority of nine will, therefore, be cut to at least six, for ln
Fort George and In the Southern Okanagan and Slmllkameen ridings he
cannot see anything but a solid Liberal
support. The dry belt representative, of the Opposition will go, he
considers, because of the aggressive
government policy In respect of Irrigation. He told the residents there
that It Is the Intention ot the Government to carry ahead Its policy until
every acre of land in that section Is
under water.
"What ia the likelihood of an early
election?" the Minister was asked.
I can't say, for I don't know myself," replied the Minister, who, however, expressed unbounded confidence
that whenever an election le held, the
Oliver oovernment will be overwhelmingly sustained.

By an overwhelming vote, 139 to

Fernle had had to generate up to the
present time, to tlie hydro-electric energy which the oompany is expecting
to generate at Bull BJver falls will
result in a saving of eight or nine
thousand dollars or more per annum
to tlie city, if the company's plans are

Canadian Persian Lamb
(1) A Karakul flock gathered for inspection.
(2)
The aggressive and enterprising
spirit of the Canadian farmer coupled
with the diversity of climates to be
found throughout the Dominion result in a continual branching out into
"new lines of agricultural activity. A
recent Introduction which has apparently taken vigorous hold and will
probably assume important proportions, developing into a commercial
industry of magnitude, is the breeding of Karakul sheep, the animal
whose young- produce the fur variously known as Porsian lamb, Astrakhan, and Karakul. This breed Is
tut little known on the American
continent although Interesting experiments have been made with this
breed at Pennlac, New Brunswick,
and In Pilnce Edward Islanu. The
bome of the Karakul sheep Is
on the vast sandy deserts of
Bokarn, which are largely inundated
in the spring hy the river Zeiafchane
swollen to overflowing by the accumulation of winter's snow in the Altai Mountains.. Many deep-rooted
bushes grow In this region, the tender ahuots oi which form the favor
ite food of the sheep In the summer,
whilst their berries supply winter
forage. For the supply of furs, thc
lambs are killed within three days
from birth when the wool Is curly, a
property lt maintains afterwards in
the most humid atmosphere. If thc
animal Is permitted to live, the
growth gradually becomes straight,
losing every vestige of flexure at maturity.
In the year 1012 ths Karakul sheep
was first Introduced into tbe United
States direct from Bokara, and ln the
following year small herds were established In Alberta and British Columbia. Here tbey hsve thrived and
propagated successfully and give
every indication of making the industry In the west permanently profitable. Recently, F. E, Dawley, en
inspector of the United States Bureau of Husbandry for New York, who
has been running a herd of 45 animals north of Calgary, Alberta, located land in die Kamloops district of
British Columbia, on which he proposes establishing a similar ranch.
He believes Um district to be Dai-
Karakul sheep and lambs. r
ticularly adapted to tbe racing of
Karakul Bheep on account of its elevation, climate and winter condition*
closely approximating the animals*
native Bokara In Turkestan. Y.-e»
vious to the wai' attempts were made
to acclimatize Karakul Bheep In BeU
glum and Northern Germany, wltb
some success. The climate of c«w
tain sections of Canada, however
provides more ideal conditions, ani
Indications are that the foundation
has been laid in thc Dominion fox a
new issue in tbe livestock industry
which should prove a very profitable
llne to Canadian farmers.
Before the war almost the entir*
Karakul fur crop from Bokara I
as Pers ian lamb or Astrakhan,
treated and dyed at Leipzig, wh
two houses alone received 7S0.0
skins valued at about |2,700,OO0 <*

Karakul sheep Is worth about S2.000f

"that it has not considered the question of
government control"
VOTERS
The liquor party are seeking to steal a vote.
They see that people are disgusted with the lack of administration of the present Act,
and they have compelled the Government to ask you to choose between an Act which
they have deliberately and maliciously plotted to destroy, and an abstract idea of
Government Sale.
The liquor party is at the bottom of conditions.
They have plotted, but every day of the campaign people are discovering the real position.
Don't be fooled by them.   Don't be a victim of their plot.
Don't be fooled, we say.   Do you think the brewers want to prevent the extensive sale of liquor?
Certainly Not!
They are not out for reform, but for money-money from the rich, money from the poor, money
from the wife, money from the kiddies.
If Government Sale wins, the "booze ring" will control the Government.
VOTE FOR   PROHIBITION
which the Oovernment will be compelled to enforce.

MACKEZIK KING AM)
PARTY IN THE CITY
{Continued from Page 1)
long enough to find out that that the
big interests had special Influence In
its findings.
According to Mr. King there were
at least three ways In which something could be done to reduce the high
cost of living. Tlte first was to practice economy In administering tlie government, This year's estimates amounted to seven hundred million dollars, and eventually this burden of
taxation would find its way on, to the
backB of those least able to bear it. Economy was not to be expected from tlie
men now in olllce. however, Mr. King
averred. A second way of reducing
the high cost of living was by reducing
the tariff on the necessities of life,
thus relieving tlte consumer, and also
by reducing the tariff on instruments
of production used In farming. It was
still necessary to havo a tariff. Mr.
King was careful to add, and the system could not be changed all at once.
Taxes on Incomes, on business profits,
and on luxuries would not alone yield
the reveune, a tariff would be needed for some time to come.
The Liberal party believed that the
tarlg at present was not ftir. and demanded its revision, not in a way as
to destroy any industry, but so as to
let the necessities of life escape with
the least possible taxation.
Relieving farm implements of some
of their taxation should appeal to British Columbia, Mr. King thought. Putting a duty on thorn wns the same as
taxing capital. Freeing litem would
result ln increasing production, benefitting both labor and capital. The
farm stood In tbe same position. Unless there was agriculture, the cost
of living in the cities would never be
reduced.

priced very low.
We have been told that our prices and quality
are very good indeed. Naturally we are glad to hear
this, as It Is our aim to keep our prices aB low as we
possibly can, and we have tried never to sell any
goods that we could not recommend. We would ask
you to examine these SuiU if you are thinking of
buying one.
AGENTS FOB WILLIS PIANOS
SIB THE WILLIS PIANOS NOW HEBE
Mr. King's third remedy for the
high cost of living was to end profiteering. It should be possible for the
government to establish machinery to
this end, he asserted.
Tlie government claimed to have
done n great thing in taking over the
Grand Trunk railway system, said Mr.
King. The two attractive points about government ownership were the
! lowering of rates and the fact ot pub-
j lie control. Did the people think they
iowned the (..rami Trunk, he asked?
' Tho fact was that Canada has guaran-
j teed to pay the shareholders Interest
| for twenty years in excess of the an-
' nual dvidends. At the end of that
time the company could take It back
' hy paying five hundred million dol-
| lars. The big interests had thus been
| fully cared for, and the people's part
■ was to care for the deficit, Bald Mr.
I King. The railroad would be administered by a board appointed by a
! government that had usurped the
rights of the people. This helped to
illustrate the difference between the
two parties. The opposition wanted
twn representatives of labor on that
hoard, but Mr. Melghen had opposed
this, according to Mr. King,
Each group of the public — fanning,
manufacturing and others — should
be represented In parliament, but Its
representatives should not be there
as representatives but as private citizens. There should be party government, but thero ought not to be
groups in control of the government.
In international relations, Mr. Kfrfg
said, the party stood for the same
principles. They wanted no secret
diplomacy. They wanted the rel'a-
tlons between Canada and other countries settled in parliament and not In
secret cabinet sessions.
The meeting closed with the Blng-
fng of the national anthem.
Mr. King and bis party left for Lethbrldge on Tuesday morning by the
daylight train through the Crow's
Nest.
