Forward Movement
Given ajtoost Here
Largely   Attended Public Meeting in
the  Interest of Inter*
i lunch Cause.
A public meeting was held on Tue.s-1
day evening iu the Methodist church
In connection with the Inter-church
Forward movement. There was a ;
gootl attendniit'O when the meetiug
opened twenty minutes after tin-
scheduled time, tiie Hev, Lee Introducing the speakers tbo Hev u. Belli
M.L.A., Victoria, and Itev. W. J. Stp-
percll, D.D., of Vancouver, Incidentally
remarking the need and dire necessity of the church's movement at tills
time. Doth the doctor and Mr. Bell
were orators of no mean order and it
was much to be regretted that tho
time alloted for each speaker was so
After thc rendering cf "My Task," by
Mr. Para baker, of Klmberley, Mr. Bell
opened his discourse, declaring he had
no apology to make for the subject
of his address, viz.: of "Money"; the
quota-io be raised by the Methodists
set forth us tour and a half millions.
Money, given to Ood's service, said
Mr. Hell. I.-, a Worship, Inasmuch as
man toils to gain it. Spei.king of tho
one and half millions required for the
superannuation fund, paid a tribute to
loyalty to the unswerving devotion of
the ministers of fifty years ago who
gave tbo whole tenure of their lives to
tho Master's service.
Lest the sceptic enquired why the
ministers did not provide for old age,
the speaker deploied thc miserable
pittance existing in the church and
Instanced the case of a widow of a
dttporannuoted clergyman appealing
for assistance recently in Toronto.
Enquiries elicited the fact that her
husband's stipend averaged $457 for
21) years. The need of money to
equip colleges to train the youth of
of manhood to replace the heroic fallen In France; and also to fit young
women for ministry to the sick, suffering and rescue work was not the
least important plan In the movement. The need of thc gospel in the
homo was the only solution to the domestic un happiness emphasized Mr.
Bell, remarking that 108,000 divorces
wore granted annunly in the United
Stages. As applied to the social, business and material life the gospel was
tbo only sure foundation. Urging his
audience to produce more, spend less
and more forgetful of self, Mr. Bell
made some startling statements anent
the luxury of automobiles and amusements generally.
Dr. Sipperell followed in a 40-mln-
itto speech delivered rapidly and said
in part, speakiug on tbe challenge of
the war; Any basis in material things
as a foundation for national and world
progress has heen forever discredited
by the war. Our boys fought for
ideals that belong to us as n race and
therefore they challenge US to think
in contents today and not to be self-
centered or provincial in our thoughts.
The state is challenged to a reconstruction and revali^tion, and the
church is challenged to lead along
lines of spiritual progress and to have
rare in tbe mind as It proceeds, The
present program of the church is the
greatest in her history since Pentecost nnd she can carry it out on certain conditions, the first being:
A recognition of the stewardship
Of prayer. The hope of success lies
in thc fact that the church has begun
its task on her knees. Money alone
will damn civilization nnd the world.
Prayer wfll save both money and the
world. There should be a construction of our family affairs. Homes are
not thc bulwarks of tbe nation but
christian homes are such. Our hoys
and girls are out of the church in thc
world today largely because the card
table and the social dance and the
moving pictures have pushed aside
the family altar and the atmosphere
of the homes aro not conducive to the
growth of spiritual !if<v We should
pray for our children, our homos, na-
ion and church.
Thc church Is still a factor in nat-
tonal life; it Is the ono distribution
that stand*; for tho Ideal,, that make
lire wort) while; It is easy tn slay,
but lt is hard to replace; it has done
Its bit In the world war; its men have
gone forth in tho spirit of true heroism us the honor rolls of our church
walls would indicate. Tlie spirit of
these men prove our churches havu
made a valued contribution to winning the war.
Then too, must be recognized the
stewardship ol service as nlso the
stewardship of wealth.
Or. Sipprell's speech was a masterly
bit of oration and should have been
hoard by everyone in thc city.

Ueo. J. Spreull contended that the
i Health Insurance Act of 101 i of
I Oreut Britain had succeeded bo well
: that oven greater measures were bo-
j ing expended, unit iu spile uf the
i iierce opposition ut the outset.
Uev. .1. I'. Sinclair had ween tho
working ot uiothers'poni.ioiis in Man-
Itoba, and felt, that provision should
be made against mothers going out to;
work ami still receiving state assist-1
Mrs. .l.'W. Burton presented the
views til' the Women's institute, ns
unanimously supiporting any schemo
whereby destitute mothers could receive such aid us would enable thorn
tn care lor their children al home'
Also, with regard In the Victorian'
order of nurses the institute fell the
district was badly in need uf two
such nurses. Questioned as tu ihe
duties expected ul' such nurses. .Mrs,
Burton replied, tbey would assist at
medical and dental clinics, accidents
In the home, visiting patients bedridden, needing skilled attention, ami
also to be with the medical ofllcer at
tbe inspection of schools, and tu interview iMirents when necessary regarding tbe follow up of work.
It was the opinion of Mrs. A. A,
McKinnon that the rural districts
needed greater provision than tbat ot
the municipal.
Rev. H. W. Leo felt that maternity
benefits and mothers' pensions ought
not to savor of charity.
Another speaker voiced thc opinion
tbat the husbands have no opportunity "to go out and have a good time"
with tbe maternity benefit.
While all Ihe speakers concurred
with the beneficial properties of the
various subjects, » general sense of
the pitfalls ensnaring lhe health Insurance was evident, against whicli
the chairman ensured provision would
be made.
Some confusion about the duties
of the district nurso marked tbe discussion on public health nursing
some of the ladies averring thai thc
nurso should take entire charge. Tho
chairman reminded lhe objectors Unit
there nre already organizations Instituted assuming the responsibilities of
this nature.
After Inviting suggestions and advice correspondence to tbelr head-
puartcrs In Vancouver tlie chairman
declared tbe meeting closed.
The Commission, which was accompanied by Miss N. Fitzgerald, stenographer, Victoria and Mrs. C. Spoffor,
also of Victoria, departed on Friday

A    GREAT deal   lias   been   written on  the  food
•Oalue of Chocolates, or candies (as some people
call them).    Well, as an emergenc*? ration,  a hox of
Neilson's or any other good Chocolates has a sound
food value.
But it is our belief that people buy Neilson's
Chocolates because they are luscious to the taste and
delightfully satisfy one's  craving for something sweet.
E-Jery maiden should know that when her "man"

Tlte Enemy Within
Revolutionists are trying to destroy
labor unions as the first obstacle In
their paths. Willi thler system or joint
wage conferences between employers
and workmen, at whicli collective
bargains are made and time contracts are signed, and with their
practice of disciplining members who
violate these contracts, the unions,
notwithstanding their strikes, work
toward Industrial peace under the
present form of government. Hence,
they are regarded as enemies by tlie
I.W.W., which at first openly nttch-
cd them from wlthuot. The important developments of this year is
that the revolutionists now attack the
unions from within, by enlisting as
members and using their position to
rausc adoption of their destructive
plans. If successful, this policy
would destroy the unions by destroying the entire system nf bettoring the
conditions of labor by ngrcoment
wllh employers, and would leave the

Placer Mines of Cariboo
Contain Much Rich Oore
Tho Ashcroft Jounral, says;
"All the gold has not been taken
out of tho Cariboo. Millions of dollars were mined at the time of the
lirst gold ruch, but at that time only
the surface of the ground was disturbed und a thin veneer removed.
Facilities for mining in those days
were uot so efficient as they are today, aud transportation form one
part of the Province to the other was
ono of the greatest drawbacks to
mining on n large scale. Today
rau-sporution facilities are not yet
what they might be In the north,
but the advent of he I*. O.. E. will
ameliorate this condition in the Carl-
boo to a groat extent.

still many miles away from the toot

'•The richest creeks In the Cariboo
in the catty days were Antler, Lightning uud Keathlay. all tributaries of
the Frosor river. Tlie names of those
■reek-; have long since been world
renowned But according to "Doc"
English, of Ashcroft. who visited

Hoc never was a miner but he has

give them pointers Pehaps he did
but his advice was not taken in the
early days, perhaps because it was'
Impracticable, and that is tha reason
much of the gold Ih still lying in

"It remained for tho miners of the
present day to grusp the situation*
or to have the facilities to cope with;
It, for thc rich deposits lie away,

tion of other districts, and the uncovering of new ore bodies."
Outlining the geological features of
the Salmon Hlver section Mr. Campbell stated:
"Provided a substantial tonnage of
ore Is developed, the district offers
no obstruction to successful mine
equipment and development. The
mineral area is from 12 to 20 miles
from thc tidewater, and no real difficulties to railway consructlon exist.
For an elevaton up to 2,000 feet, the
hills are densely wooded with a good
quality of spruce, hemlock and cedur.
Many thousand horse-power continuous throughout the year, could be
developed from Cascade creek, which
flows across thc mineral area.

For the past year no part of Brlt-i

producing standpoint than tbat tributary of Stewart. Ahout ten years
ago this .place was the centre of a

that time several properties of decided merit wore found, the district was
more or less discredited by the fool-

questionable value.

A contrast of the conditions in
Baghdad tinder Turkish and British
rule is in Itself a conclusive testimony to the beneficial results which
have accrued io the population of
this town liuder our regime. .Needless to say the Baghdad of today is
very different to the same city in
the tlmo of the Great Caliph. It
has tbat worn and dissipated look
which Is sometimes seen in
who after a prosperous youth and
prime middle-age drags out his remaining years in poverty and make-
believe, Any romance whieh
have existed among its delapidatlons,
lhe rigors ol martial law have successfully exterminated. The Bazaars, at one time the richest in the
East, consist now of long gloomy
alleys of Ihere holes in the walls,
punctuated by gups of brilliant light
where tbe roofs have iallen In; these
spaces only serving to accentuate
the tawdrineRs of the wares and the
filth of thc merchants. Handicrafts
are confined to the crudest only of
workmanship, a sufficient indication
of the centuries ot poverty which
by a miracle the place has been
able to survive.
At the taking of the city the
■street bazaars, houses and people
were In an apalllng condition loo
loathsome to describe. lt is remarkable that any-one who entered
a Turkish hospital over left it alive,
for on our arrival the patients were
slowly being devoured by parasites
in the most obnoxious atmosphere
ami filth It i.s possible to imagine.
Conditions in this last respect, are so
entirely different now, that 1 can
truthfully say thai with a few
reservations the hospitals of this
lown ran compare very favorably
with our home institutions. Tbe
streets and banners are now clean,
wholesome, ami moderately passable.
.There are*special sanitary police, who
attend lo and prevent the necessity for scavenging, a condition very
different to affairs under the regime
of tbo Turks, when the streets were
tiif receptable for nil rubbish and
the scavenging left to dogs and
crows. Since our arrival the main
streets, principal houses, hospitals
and public buddings are lit through-
niii by eleclrlclt) and furnished with
electric r.ms for the first time in
thi li  ion: and verted history.

who said all the ex;treasons of regret
extended by the previous sneakers, he

Howurd's personality and even temper bore him in good stead »s a
banker. The speaker said he had en-
Joyed an auto trip of three weeks
with the banker at the end of which
time, after sharing a tent with him
during the trip they had been the

honor; be knew some arrangements
were being taken to give blm a farewell but the program was one for
which It was difficult for him to find
words with which io express his deepest appreciation. He had thought of
somo things he would say during the
