An Indieutlou of the growing sentiment hi favor of prohibition which
has been making itself felt ln tills
olty of lute was cloarly seen ut the
public meeting held last Friday ov
ening at the EdlHOti Theatre. The
meeting was called by the prohibition
party, and practically every seat provided wus occupied, a good proportion of the audience being ladies. Obviously the general sentiment of the
meeting was in favor of prohibition,
and the addresses of the speakers
were frequently punctuated by ap-
plause. There were a number present who were then undecided on the
issue, aud some even who are known
to be bitterly opposed to prohibition,
but when the call came from the platform two or three times during the
evening for a champion of the cause
of "moderation" to present their side
of the case, no response was forthcoming. This wsb all the more
st.range seeing that at least four days
previous an invitation hadbeen extended to the local branch of the moderation league to have a speaker on
hand at the meeting on Friday, io
whom fifteen minutes would be given,
Mr. F. Dezall called the meeting to
order, and with him on the platform
were 'he speakers of the evening, Rev.
R. W. Lee, of this city, and Rev. D. T.
McClintock, pastor of St. Paul's Presbyterian church, Nelson.
Rev. R. W. Lee, the first speaker,
has been heard quite frequently in
thla city on the question of phohlbi-
tion, Trom his own pulpit and the public platform. He delivered a fighting
speech, trenchantly bringing out a so
lid array of facts, and marshalling
them into one striking Indictment of
the liquor traffic as a whole. He
traced the growth of (he prohibition
movement in this province, showing
how this would be the fourth time the
people were to give an expression of
opinion on the mutter. Ho also urged
that the electors allow no confusion
or the Issue to arise fn their minds,
that the lack of enforcement of the
existing prohibition law ahould not be
attributed to any weakness inherent
in the act itself. Indeed, the act,
as now amended, ho had no hesitation
in describing as one of the finest pieces of temperance legislation extant.
The amfndments.jis affected this summer, had effected great improvement
in the workings of the law. As against the continuation of the prohibition act in its amended form wns the
proposal for the sale of liquor by the
government — 'government control"
so called. Mr. l**e emphasized the
Indisputable fact thnt this alternative
is an absolutely unformed proposition,
The moderation league nnd other opponents of prohibition have advanced
various conjectures aa to what will be
done undd* tho policy of government
sale, but till are rebutted by the statement of the ttttorney-goneral of the
province that DO concrete proposals
have yel been formulated on the subject. H wns also shown that the
control the governmeni would be able
to exercise III the event of tho government sale proposal going through
would be absolutely negligible. There
would be mighty Utile "control" about it. Tho quantity of liquor ont
could purchase would not likely be
limited, nor would the number of liquor vending stores to any given
place; anil the appointment of thn go
vernment vendors would bring politics
Into the question and presented the
strong possibility of the political life
of the provinco coming under the contaminating Influence of liquor. Mr.
Lee touched also upon the growing
sentiment that is arising against the
liquor traffic In general, and described the man who "liked his glass" and
took It because he thought it did him
good, even though without any suggestion of excess, as being behind the
times. Tho moderation league, as the
stated body undertaking organised opposition to the present prohibition act,
also received due attention from Mr.
Lee, who strongly denounced the selfishness of the whisky men who were
behind the movement, and were only
out against prohibition because Its abolition moant moro money In their
own pockets.

some encouragement to the local pro-

from figures to show how the use of
alcohol was diminishing In Old Country institutions for medicinal purposes. He also quoted from Blr Victor
Horsley and Sir Edmund Osier to
make a cue against the uss of alcohol medicinally. Leaving hia figures,
Mr. McClintock got really warmed up

Leaving the City
Manager Robertson of the Local Branch of the Royal
Bank Going to Nanaimo
Manager F. E. Robertson, who for
the past two years has heen the energetic manager of the local branch
of the Royal Bank of Canada, has received notice (rom headquarters of
a promotion to the managership of
the bank's branch at Nanaimo.
Patrons of the local branch will
regret to learn that Mr. Robertson
and his most estimable wife and their
Ittle son', will be leaving Cranbrook
within a short time. Mr. Robertson
and his family have made many warm
friends since coming to the city, and
with the .patrons of the local bank
Manager Robertson has been \ery de-
servingly popular, because of his
cordial treatment of those doing business with the local branch. He lias
won for tho bank a cousiedrable am'
ount of new business during his brief
direction of its affairs, some of which
is quite extensive.
Always taking an active interest
in public matters tending to the upbuilding of the city, he will be missed from our midst, but with him will
go the best wishes of all for success
in his new field of labor.
Mr. Robertson's succcessor will be
Mr. 0, F. Marsh, who is at present
manager of the Royal Bank branch
at Courtenay, who will arrive within
a short lime to take over the management of the local branch and with
his family will occupy the residence
now occupied by Manager Robertson
and family.

Invermere, B.C., Oct,. 13.—Mr. w.
J. Bothoran, tho champion walker of
this part, has sent In another challenge that be is ready on ThankBglv-
ng Day, the 18th of October, to take
on all comers In a one to three mile
running road race between Wilmer
and Athalmer, or a walking race of
frrom one to flvc miles, heel and toe,
on road or track. Alt persons wish-
lug to accept this challenge should
communicate with our sporting editor.
He also urged the support of prohibition In order to stop Importation, and
so make for real bone-dry conditions.
Mr. McClintock also dealt very tellingly with the personal liberty argument, and showed the selfishness at
heart of the "beer barons." He said
lt was everybody's business how we
lived, and we reached the highest levels In life when there was a willingness to make some sacrifice. As a
matter of fact our .personal liberty Is
already curtailed by Inw In a thousand and ono ways. Mr. MCllntock
also spent some time dealing with the
Kngland Free or England Sober"
pamphlet of the moderatlonlsts' propaganda, and showdd the fallacy of
some of the argument therein.
His own personal Insight into the effects of prohibition, how It had
brought happiness and new conditions into many homes, was also a striking featute of Hr. McClintoch't ad
OTTAWA.—The Government is In
good spirits, its victories in Colchester and St. John having done much to
dispel the anxiety that attended these
two bye-elections. In reality there
was not much cause for anxiety, as
the event showed, but during these
days politicians, like many other
class of people, have bad attacks of
nerves. It doesn't take much to
frighten them.
The result of the two bye-elections
continued the opinion expressed In
these letters. The St. John contest
was uot even a good camouflage affair.
Two weeks before the day of .poling
the Government was informed that
everything was all right, and that
while Dr. Enory would remain in the
field there would he no flgth. Anyone
who happened to be a cabinet minister could have won in St. John. The
position simply carries the man in on
its back. In some quarters down by
the sea they don't take their politics
nearly as seriously as they do some
things that go with jit. Politicians
from that part of the country are not
very keen on the abolition of patron
Those well-versed in things political knew right well that in spite of all
the reports about the strength of Dig-
on, the Farmer candidate, McCurdy
could win. To defeat a cabinet min
ister in a bye-election is just about
the hardest thing .possible. Besides,
formidable new political organisations
ire not built ln a day. With both
Liberals and Conservatives against
him. ('apt. Dixon did well to poll so
many votes. The Truro returns show
that when a Farmer's candidate runs
up against a city or town there is a
different story to tell as compared
with what (here is in the country.
If the bye-elections did nothing
more they demonstrated that the Gov-
eminent will put up a formidable
light in the next campaign. The
Prime Minister has put more aggressiveness into the party he leads than
it has had at any time since 1911. By
getting out and talking to the .peoplo
ho hns also, to some extent, arrested
the drift to new political movements
among hia natural suporters. By,
making the tariff the leading Issue he
has also assured himself of a body of
support that is always formidable. In
politics, fighting counts, and for a
government no situation is absolutely
hopeless to the leader who will fight
One Is now inclined to think that ln
the next federal campaign the Farmers wfll not be much of a factor oast
of Ottawa. They may win several
eats In the Maritime Provinces; but
are unlikely to amount to much mors
than a ripple on the surface. Not
having the strong co-operative movements to sustain them they are not
the strength they are further weat.
Of course a change may come over
the situation; but tt has not yet occurred.
All eyea wilt now be turned on Bast
Elgin, for there it will be demonstrated what the Farmers can really do In
Ontario today when pitted against
two opponents. In this riding they
nre admittedly strong; but if W. O.
Charlton, the Liberal candidate, remains in the Held it ts difficult to set
how either he or the Farmer candidate
can win. On the other hand, If the government cannot carry the seat In a
in a three-cornered contest, Us weakness in the rural portions of Ontario
will have been strikingly demonstrat-
It Is possible that even if Charlton remains In the Held the Liberals
may consider discretion the better
part of valor and support the Farmer.
At present lt Is Impossible to say
what may happen.
Eastern interest In the -tariff commission Is raplldy on the wane, it having been realized that both sides to the
controversy have pretty well shot their
bolt. There was a certain amount of
Interest In the Calgary meeting owing to the expectation that there both
sides were expected to come back at
ono another. Those familiar with the
situation awaited Hon. Qeorge Lang-
ley's appearance before the Commission, for In some respects this was
looked upon as Important as any incident on tho whole prairie itinerary.

Founded 125 Years Ago In Thin
City — Dr. Crummy Special
Preacher nn Sunday
The members and adherents and
the many friends of -the Cranbrook
Methodist Church will be Interested
in the fact that it ls now 25 years
ago slnco the Methodist' Church began operations in this city. During
this time the church has made a rich
contribution to the life of -the city,
through Its various organizations, acuities and influences. The "Silver
Anniversary" of the church will be
duly recognized on Sunday next, October Huh, when the church and community are to be favored with the
presence of Rev. Dr. Eber Crummy,
of Moose Jaw, who will preach at the
anniversary services of the church ati
11 a.m., and 7.30 p.m.
The name of Dr. Crummy is well
known throughout tho whole ot the
Dominion. As a * preacher *he stands
in the front rank of the best pulpit-
of the largest churches In Canadian
Methodism. When preaching in un-
eers. He has occupied the pulpits
Iversity cities his ministry was the
centre of attraction for -the university students of almost all denominations. He is a massive, intellectual giant, bub withal he posBesset
the real orator's art of appealing to
alt hearts and minds. Ab an educationist he has more Uian a Canadian
reputation. The wonderful development! of education In Japan can be
largely attributed to Dr. Crummy,
who some years ago was closely identified with educational movements
in Japan. In Canada his intellectual
charm and .power have gained for
htm many honors and distinctions,
Some few years ago, when a large
number of -teachers visited and toured Europe, he was chosen as the leader of the party. Ae a lecturer ln the
universities, as a preacher, and aB
principal of Wesley'College, Winnipeg, he has won for himself a warm
Place in the hearts of many thousands
of admirers.
A hearty Invitation Is extended to
the public to hear Dr. Crummy on
Sunday next. Special and appropriate
music will be rendered at each service.

Referring to the report of tbe lively
meeting of the Police Commissioners
of Cranbrook, which was attended by
large delegation of citizens, Uie
Herald editor was absent, being detained at another meeting. In oar
report the following paragraph, to
which exception I3 taken, not only
hy Chief of Police Percy Adams, but
by Commissioner A. 0. Shankland,
"Chief Adams denied the charge
thnt   was .made during the  evening  that  "some  people  were   paying him," as Commissioner Shankland said he had been informed."
Monday in our mall we received the
following lejtter-from a Arm of local
barristers,   and   imagine   our   great
surprise   when   we   noted   that   the
party  complaining   was  none  other
than Chief of Police Adams:
"Mr. Adams has asked us to write
you In reference to tho last paragraph of your article entitled
"Citizens demand general cleanup", Oct 7th Issue.
"Mr, Adams tells us no charge
was made which evcu required denial and if so, the innuendo of this
article In far from fair.
"Under the circumstances we
think you should make full retraction."
Then again we received the following from Commissioner Shankland:
"Editor of Cranbrook Herald:
"Dear Sir—Re your report of the
police commission meeting ln your
lust issue, the following paragraph
"Chief Adams denied the charge
made during the evening that
'some people were paying him,' as
lloinmlssioijfer Shankland said he
had been informed.
"I wish to state that this Is an
absolute falsehood, and I think
that the people who were present
will confirm this. It would be
very foolish on my part to make
such a charge, or even think of
making such a statement at a public meeting, not having the least
bit of evidence to substantiate such
a charge,

In the course of our rounds for

of the commissioners we endeavored
to ascertain what took place, learning that Chief Adams, as he admitted
himself, was the subject of much of
the criticism leveled at the commissioners. We encountered the chief

him, especially this particular paragraph to which the chief now takes
exception. The fact that both Chief

Largely Attended Meeting Disappointed—Speakers Fall
to Make Any Kecrults
At a very largely attended meeting
arranged by those in the city favoring moderation as set out in the literature of the Moderation League,
which meeting was held in the Edison
theatre and presided over by Manager Grubbt of the Imperial Bank of
Canada, the speakers, Mr. J. H. Seymour for many years chairman of the
Vancouver School Board and Mrs. t
N. Cran, special envoy of the Imperial Association and British Press of
Ijondon, failed to make much headway in enlisting recruits for the
Mrs. Cran was the first speaker and
at Intervals during her talk, received | anifflag"
applause when she introduced some
witticisms. It was plainly to be seen
that the audience was largely made
up of those favoring a continuance
of the present Prohibition act with
modifications, and the speaker, trying every argument at her command
to win over the gathering, failed utterly.
It was not until Rev R. E. Pow
secretary of the Railway "Y.," advanced to the platform upon Invitation
of Chairman Grubbe. that a real old-
fashfoned Cranbrook hand-clapping
■was nttieeable. Mr. Paw said he
was at a considerable disadvantage.
for he had only Just arrived, and
heard only the closing remarks of the
first speaker, Mrs. Cran. He however gave hts reasons for supporting
the cause of prohibition and his briaf
remarks were well-received.
The disappointment of the evening
came when Mr. Seymour attempted
to expound the cause of moderation.
The speaker appeared to feet the effects of the reception accorded the
first speaker, and appeared somewhat
at a lose as to what to say. He fumbled with some of the literature of
the moderationists and read the platform of the party, quoting also from
other literature as to the claims of
his party as to "increased drunkenness under the prohibition act" and
appealed to all to vote that we might
"have more prosperous times and an
occasional good time" if the moderationists were successful. He was of
the opinion tht Province would have
period of depression should the prohibitionists succeed.
Rev. W. W. McRae, PA., of Edmonton, enlivened the occasion somewhat when he asked for and was given the privilege of addressing the
meeting. Rev. McRae did not agree
with that portion of Mr. Seymour's
address wherein the advocate of moderation saw trouble ahead in Che event
his cauee proved a lost one. After
questioning Mr, Seymour as to the
correctness of his understanding of
this part of his address and being advised he was right, Rev. McRae stated If such a condition arose after a
majority of the electorate willed for
the prohibition cause, he was of the
opinion that there would be enough
loyal men and women in Canada to
combat successfully any trouble of
that kind. He also quoted statistic-.
to prove that the drug habit was not
as great in the United States since
prohibition had become general, this
being refuted by Mrs. Cran. who asserted where men could not secure
liquor they resorted to drugs.
The outcome of the meeting was
the cause for considerable comment
among citizens acquainted with the
proceedings, many being of the opinion the meeting resulted in the prohibition cause being strengthened
Even some of the those advocating
the cause of moderation and taking

To iiis Excellency Victor Christian
William, Duke of Devonshire,
K.C.M.G., K.G., O. R. O.,
Governor-General and Com-
»aander-ln-Chief of our
Dominion of Canada.
May it please Vour Excellency:
In the name of the loyal ciUzens of
Jranbrook I have the honor of tender-
.ng their welcome to your Excellencies
on this, your first visit to Cranbrook.
Of tthe many intereeUng and thrlv-
,ng cities your Excellencies visited in
the course of your tour I am sure that
none can exceed Cranbrook in its loyalty.
Three thousand soldiers were recruited from this district and went
MFerseas, and their record is one that
the country i& proud of. Of those re-
.urned their occupations have scattered them over the district, and It haa
neen impossible to assemble all of
hem on this occasion on Uie short notice we have had.
This district is rapidly developing
ts natural resources, and the enterprise of its citizens Is laying the foundations of a highly prosperous future.
We believe in natural resource,
such as Umber, coal, metalliferous
mines and agriculture, that we have
Uie largest field for the accommodation of immigrants of any part of British Columbia.
.Such an opportunity as this of receiving the representative of the
Crown will sUmulate our citizens to
preserve all the attributes of loyalty.
Had a longer time been at your Ex-
cy's disposal, the ciUzens would
have liked to afford your Excellency
111 opportunity of enjoying the big
Same hunting for which this district
is unique.
The fact that Vour Excellencies
have given uB the opportunity ot meeting you at a time of recent bereavement makes ur appreciate the honor
of the visit all the more.
We hope that this, Vour Excellency's first visit to Cranbrook will only
he the precursor of many subsequent
I have the honor to be,

admit, of no exception.
Despite the emphatic declarations of members of the government, word pictures are
still being drawn by moderation speakers and writers as to
what "government control and
sale'! really is. They are all
the product of vivid imaginations, but nothing more. The
government at Victoria has declared officially, not once but
many times, that no details in
regard to tbe alternative policy lo prohibition have been formulated up to the present time.
This puts the person who votes for "moderation" in the anomalous position of having
marked his ballot in favor of
something the real import of
which will not be known till it
is brought up al the next session of the legislature. Or In
other words, the electors, if
they vote for government sale,
will be handing out a carte
blanche as to the composition
of the act to govern it This is
not an attractive program, and
will not appeal to thinking men
and women.
conditions than under any other attempted system of regulation?
Thero is no moderation about the liquor traffic, and never
has been any. It is even now
being strangled to death by Its
own excesses. So it will be in
this province, even if prohibition fails to carry on Wednesday of next week. The much-
vaunted "moderation" would be
thrown to the winds, and ln
a year or two conditions surrounding the sale of liquor
would become so unendurably
rotten that public opinion, outraged by such excesses, would
rise in self defence and crush
out the liquor traffic mercilessly on its own showing. So it
has been elsewhere and would
be here. One does not need to
be a prophet or the son of a
prophet to see that this province will become a veritable
sinkhole of corruption if the
bone - dry referenda carry in
the prairie provinces, as seems
altogether likely, and 13. C. gous
wet. It is a pleasant picture
to contemplate in conjunction
with the plea for "moderation"
which the opponents of prohibition are putting up.
They overlook one great factor in this campaign, and that
is the growing world sentiment
against the liquor traffic. All
kinds of epithets and hard names are being levelled at the
prohibitionists, even as they
were at the men and women
who took up the fight for the
abolition of slavery, and the
amelioration of inhuman con
ditions in the factories and the
workshops last century. But
time is marching on, and in a
few years the liquor traffic, now
fighting at practically Its last
ditch in this country, will have
ed into oblivion, and the
"moderate drinker," the man
who thinks he knows when to
stop, will be a rara avis indeed.

"The records will show that
a large proportion of the police
court cases are directly attributable to alcohol," said Magistrate John Leask this week,
in discussing the prohibition issue with the Herald this week,
Thus evidence comes from
those who are in a position to
know the workings of alcohol
ln relation to human life at
first band. Moderation may
be a fine thing for those who
know enough to be moderate,
and if a man holds his glass of
liquor in little enough esteem
to be "moderate" with It, why
can he not be strong enough to
put It from him entirely, and
respect the weakness of his
brother man who may not have
the same power of discernment? There ls food for
thought here for those who
worship so devoutly at the
shrine of personal liberty.
The highest conception of personal liberty does not carry lt
past that point where lt interferes with our duty to our fellows.
The "moderationists" take
umbrage at the statement that
the "whiskey ring of B. C." is
hiding behind the Moderation
League. Just why they should
be ashamed of their ancestry
is not quite apparent. There
is no attempt made to disprove
the assertion that such a ring
exists, but the "moderation-
iBts' " desire above all else that
they be not associated with it.
They call the statement "a prohibition lie," and counter very
weakly with the assertion that
the "bootlegger and the prohibition    par'y   are   working
hand iu glove for the present
act," and that "the law abiding
citizens, both ladies and gentlemen, are voting with the moderation league."
This is a pretty good example of "moderation." It cannot be called argument by any
stretch of imagination. It ls
the sort of clap-trap that is making converts to prohibition
every day. The "moderationists" realize that the boot'.cg-
I'.er is a great stumbling block
in the path of their propaganda, and .ry to get rid of him by
wishi.ir; him on to the prohibitionists. A nice piece of bluff,
but they can't get away with
it. The "moderationists" themselves called the bootlegger into being, and since it may be
presumed he knows what Is
good for his business, there
will be mighty few of those
gentry found marking their
ballots in the top square on

otlier wus tlie expectation of attack
some time by the English.
So In 1722 a French engineer named De Lery was given tbe task of
walling the city In military style.
He erected as well a very strong citadel on a hill. The wall ran about
wliere .Foitificiition lane ts at tbe
present, time. Within that enclosure
the French were safe from all attack
and there were even subterranean
tunnels through which they might escape if hard .pressed to boats tbat
were moored at tha river front.
Some of these were uncovered a few
years ago when an old Catholic
church in the lower part of Montreal waB demolished.
The walls stood unbroken until
180S, when the advance of commerce
demunded their removal. Even the
hill whereon the citadel stood then
was carted away to make a proper
building site. Not a trace of the old
walls exists now except an ohcaslon-
al piece doing dut yas a dividing wall
in some of the downtown yards. By
lhe time the structure was removed
there were 1,200 houses In Montreal
and of these over 700 were outside
the safe area. This shows tbat tba
old terror of Indians and other foes
bad alsost passu!.. As a result of tbs
wall aud the narrow limits of tbe original city streets were very narrow
and they remain ln that section ot th*
city as narrow yet.

In tbe early days of Ua history the
city of Montreal was surrounded on
its land side by a wall; the river side
was left open. This was essential
for two reasons. There was the constant fear of raids by the savages
who Infested the woods—more so, after Champlaln had made his unfortunate error of joining the Indians In
and attack upon the fierce Iropuols,
an attack that made the tribe the perpetual enemies of the French.   The

Movement   Has   Beginning  at
Nelson and May Become
With tlie granting recently of a
charter of Incorporation to the Loyal
Order of Servicemen, Nelson became
the headquarters of an entirely new
order of the benevolent and protective
class, one that may soon make rapid
strides in membership anl promises to
establish lodges in every town in this
province wherein ex-service men and
their relatives aud dependents are located.
Originating witii members of the
Nelson Ci. W. V. A., the new organization is designed to bind together men
of military and1 neval service within
the llrltlsh Empire, and to facilitate
social intercourse and co-operative activity among its members. At tbe
sauu Ume it has no ambition to bud-
plant or supersede any exstlng order
of any kind whatsoever.
The Nelson lodge is the parent lodge
ot the organization, and goes under
the name of L. O. O. S. Lodge No. 1.
Efforts to establish subordinate lodges ln the nearby towns, including
Hossland, Trail, Cranbrook, Fernle
aud Kaslo are meeting with some success, It is understood, and numerous
requests have been received from the
Coast cities for information from ex-
servicemen anxious to link up with an
organization fostering the Ideals and
keeping olive the traditions they prise.
According to the charter the objects
of the society are declared to be the
facllltatng of socal ntercourse, rat-
onul amusement and mental and moral Improvement among Its members;
the carrying on of benevolent, provident and charitable activities; the making provision for the benefit of members against sickness, misfortune and
death, and the relieving of widows and
orphaned children of deceased members, and the perpetuation of the tiee
of past military or naval service.
The Vancouver Sun says Mr. F. W.
Fitters, general superintendent of the
Canadian Pacific Railway iu British
Columbia, celebrated recently, the
forty-seventh anniversary of starting
his career as a railway man and the
thitry-ninth anniversary of his joining
the services of the C.P.R. He became identified with the Canadian Pacific at Winnipeg on October 1, 1881,
and in point of length of continuous
work in the employment of the company is third on the C.P.R. payroll.

An Interesting test of the mileage efficiency per gallon of gasoline has been
made ln Cranbrook with one of the New Overland Fours, lt being desired to sea Just
what tbe car would do per mile In th6 consumption of gosollna.
Draining the tank dry of fuel, a gallon only of gas waa placed ln the tank and
off towards ths Mission went the little car. Over the'most difficult roads hereabout,
.he kept up the pace and when tha engine retuBed to function longer lt was found that
exactly 31% miles waa tha distance covered.
A demonstration of tha many good qualities of this popular car can be had

The tariff commission Is losing weight
in public estimation through the realization that not it but the government really makes tho dedsionB.
The recent addresses of Hon. Alph-
otiie Tur^eon on the tariff issue have
aroused curiosity in some quarters,
there heing en Impression that It foreshadows his entrance Into federal politics. Nothing now is said ahout Premier Martin coming east. Hie name
having been so prominently mentioned
In connection with the Liberal leadership it cannot now be suggested for a
minor position; but not so with Tur
geon. As a lieutenant he would lit In
well. He undoubtedly would he a success In parliament there being a splendid opening for men of his age and ability. Indeed It is possible that ho
might go further than Martin.
But little or no Interest has been
manifested in the Xew Brunswick provincial eleciotiH. The campaign W8B|
of so short durut'ou Hint i-ie Imi-ros-J
s'tiu prevailed that Pruui.ir ^nier,
deemed it advlnable to get the operation over as soon as possible, the sooner the better. There has been dlssen-
timi In the govornment ranks and distention In the opposition ranks. The
latter followed the dangerous practice of swappiug horses while crossing
the election stream. Still the change
could not have possibly made the situation any worse for the Conservatives. Opinion was that the government
would be' sustained, but there was also known to ho a lot of shifting sand
In Now Brunswick polleics.
At present Ottawa Is more keenly
interoBted ln tlie Manitoba situation
than in any other political one. From
a distance it looks like a coalition or
clso defeat for tlie Norris government
A coalition would, lt is thought, placo
Norris pretty much alongside the administration of Hon. Arthur Melghen,
for rumor has lt that he does not take
kindly to Mackenzie King. But the
government has to exercise extreme
care fn Its attitude towards Manitoba
iwlitics, thero being a remnant of old-
time Manitoba Conservatives to whom
Norrls ls anathema, and it would hardly do to openly annoy thorn.
Ontario Conservatives have to
choose a new leader, Hon. Howard
Ferguson, who has been acting in a
temporary capacity having announced
that he Ib not in tlie running for the
permanent .position. General Ross,
of Kingston, is being spoken of as a
possibility, but It would seem likely
Uiut Toronto will have a finger in the
pie. Drury Is getting quite a little
Conservative support, his play safe policy on hydro-radlnls appealing very
strongly to the class that naturally
votes Conservative.
It Is not generally known how near
Sir Adnm Beck came to being the lead-
or of the Fanners* Party last fall, and
thus premier of Ontario. He was
within a hair's breadth of It. His
name had actually be placedl before
the caucus and had a vote taken on lt
there and then he no doubt would have
heen chosen. But an Important element In the ranks of the Farmers'
Party felt that if he were the leader
it would he a Beck, rather than a Farmers' Party. A strong plea was made
or a week's delay, and this was granted. The opposition to Beck was thus
given time to develop, and by the time
the caucus reassembled, Beck hod no
more chance titan Hartley Dewart
would have had. But It was a close
Tho prairies will see both the Prime
Minister and the leader of the Opposition In October or November. Mack-
onzle King Is a certainty, having already begun his tour. The visit of
the Prime Minister also seems to be
moro certain, hut it can only be i flying visit, for with the session coming
on in January there ls much to
gage his attention at Ottawa. He bas
set a very fast pace for himself, and
ho far has stood It well; but there Is
fear that he may overdo it. Still the
strain today is very much less than It
was during the war period. But in
-I-h most peaceful times even the position of Prime Minister Is hever a sin
The success of the luxury and sales
taxes has taken a load off the mind of
tlie government. At one time the
raising of revenue to meet the greatly
Increased expenditure threatened to
become a bugbear to the government.
But any such Idea has been dispelled.
Not only is the revenue today almost
three times what It was in the pre-war
days, but there Is every prospect of it
remaining large and Indeed of increasing. Today there are not many real
clouds In Canada's financial sky. Tho
big western crop has dispelled them

Union of B. C. Municipalities
Rejects Numerous Proposals at Nelson Sleeting
returned soldiers and their
families will be interested In the He-
turned Soldiers' Insurance Act,
der which they are provided with the
opportunity of obtaining life iuaur-
unce ut most favorable rates. The
act became effective on September
lst, 1920, and will remain in force
for two years.
Under ihe provisions of the act any
honourably discharged soldier, sailor nurse, of the Canadian Forces
domiciled and resident In Canada,
may insure with the government tu
un amount ot from $500 to $6000.
Under certain conditions the widow
ot a returned soldier, who died sub-
oquent to discharge, may also obtain insurance.
ln addition to former members of
the C.E.F., tlie privileges of the act
nre available to any me, male or female who served during tbe late war
in the limeprlal Army or with the
forces of any of the allied or associated poweiS, providing they were domiciled and resident in Canada before
iiie war and hold an honourable Ate
Many of those who served overseas, while not suffering from n se-
ere disability, find that their physl-
:a1 condition ia such that they are
unable to obtain life Insurance at all
or only at much higher rates than
ure normally demanded. They,
therefore, find themselves severely
handicapped in providing protection
for tlieir dependents.
Under tlie Returned Soldiers' Insurance Act all returned men are
placed on an equal basis ae no medial examination Is required.
The premium rates are low. They
vary with the age of the insured and
the plan of insurance chosen. At the
age of twenty-five a straight life Insurance policy for $1000 costs $1.24
per month. At the age of thirty-five
the rate Is $1.70 per month. Beneficiaries are limited in the case of a
married man to his wife and children. An unmarried man or a widower without children la required to
name his future wife and children as
beneficiaries. Should tbe Insured die
unmarried the insurance money may
Ik. paid to one or more of his immediate relatives according to his will.
An exceptionable advantage ot this
insurance is the provision made for
disability benefit. Under this section should the policy holder become
totally and permanently disabled he
is relieved from paying further premiums and the Insurance money Is
paid to him direct !□ annual Instalment!) equal to one-twentieth of tha
total amount of the policy.
Bookelts explaining the act. and application forms may be obtained
from all branches of the Great War
Veterans' Association; The Soldiers'
Aid Commission; Imeprlal Veterans'

Department of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment; Military District Headquarters and District Offices of ths

Vptlng down overwhelmingly various proposals for further governmental Investigations Into the high cost of
living, the Union ot British Columbia
Municipalities which closed its sessions In Nelson last week-end, took
action of a direct ami drastic character on many matters that it deemed
of pressing public Importance.
Among others of its acts, expressed
through leaolutions, it urged the Provincial government to take over all
the high schools and technical schoolB
and operate hospitals; dissented from
both Dominion and 1'rovluclal Governments holding their lands within
municipalities free from taxation;
asked for a conference of federal and
provincial, civic and municipal officials, to co-ordinate tlie Income tuxe
and to correct overluping; recommend
that tlie municipalities be given control over clubs, tlto same as aver hotels; demanded that tlie sume qualifications be exacted of pollco commissioners as of councillors and school
trustees; authorized the appointment
of a committee to study the whole
question of municipal taxation; asked
the Provincial Government to inquire
into fire insurance rates; asked tbe
Dominion Government to let land once
held by soldiers and abandoned remain under taxation; and approved
the extension of consolidated arrears
privileges to returned men who arrived too late to take advantage- of the
The Union turned down a number
of resolutions proposing that the Provincial Government take over the entire police administration, but favored a two-eyar term for councils.
In the matter of the regulation of
clubs, four mayors urged the change,
Mayor R, H. Gale, of Vancouver; Mayor J. J. Johnston, of New Westminster; Mayor Vance, of North Vancouver, and Mayor J. A. Macdonald,
of Nelson, a recommendation from the
resolutions committee against Intervention being overwhelmingly voted
The other matter that principally
evoked discussion was that of apportioning payments for Indigent patients, some twenty delegates partici
jiatlng ln tlie expression of views. The
principle of the Government taking
over the hospitals was approved.

More Personal Endorsement for Prohibition
Hefore Prohibition, one boy out of every four became a victim of the drink traffic.
I have been entrusted with the care of precious lives. My duty to those demands
that I support Prohibition. Otherwise I
would not feel worthy of the name, Mother.
Mary Mackinnon
I honestly believe Prohibition has not
had a fair chance and should be passed again, thus paving the way for the non-importation of liquor into the province. Government Sale, to my mind, is a myth without body or soul, and would prove a dangerous experiment.
W. C. Adlard
I support Prohibition so that the rising generation may grow up
free from the temptations of an evil which ruins more lives and brings
more misery and suffering upon innocent people than any other evil
in the world; also because it has been proved that the efficiency and
output of any nation are greatly increased by the restriction of the
drink traffic. The Government has given no key to the meaning of
Government control. Where does that word "Moderation," so wonderfully satisfying and soothing to the freedom-loving citizen, come
in Government control — in the quality, in the amount stored in the
cellars, in the output of the private manufacturers, or in the consumption by the individual?
Margaret J. Spreull, m.a„ b.sc.
I am supporting Prohibition because I
believe that the Interests of our province
can be best served by a strict enforcement
of the Prohibition Act instead of the plan
of Government sale.- I want to be on the
winning side, so 1 shall vote for Prohibition.
Alice Phillips
I am in favor of Prohibition, and some day I hope to see a bone-
dry Canada, bringing about conditions that will make the hearts of mothers rejoice throughout our great Dominion.
Annie M. Laurie
I have as much respect for "liberty" as
any man, but when I hear from men who
come before me In the Police Court, that
they had no intention of gcttir.g drunk, I
think it is time people tried to help the
young from falling into a habit that has
caused so much sorrow in the homes of
ninny. They can do this by voting for
John Leask
The reason I am in favor of Prohibition is because 1 do not believe in asking
any government to enter into the liquor
trade. Also, I believe tbat the Prohibition Act, as amended, if enforced, will be a
benefit to the younger generation, which in
my mind Is of very great importance.
I believe that if the Prohibition Act is passed and enforced, it will
help the man who is weak by removing the temptation; it will afford
a measure of protection to the rising generation; lt will promote happiness, and contribute to the welfare of the citizens of this province, making it a more desirable place to live in. By passing this measure we
shall have an opportunity of doing away with inter-provincial Importation, and eventually get at the root of the matter in the manufacture.
I am supporting Prohibition bcause I believe it is the right thing to do.
Jos. L. Palmer
Those who must have liquor now, and
can gel It, Will die; but our children, if real
prohibition exists, will not know of it, nnd
will grow up untainted by the stench of al-
lolinl. I think those are sufficient rensons
to justify any father or mother in support-
