tho hull bolng filled lo capacity, a-
mong whom was n sprinkling or Liberals Including a bob-mill boot brigade
whicli threatened to do serious dam-
ago to tho floor nt ovory point Mr.
Fisher made during his speech. They
continued their noisy demonstrations
tor a tlmo during Mr. Fisher's heckling of the Premier until they found
that bin ungeiitleni.inly conduct was
becoming very tiresome and objectionable to the audience.
Mr. Fisher, Liberal candidate for
the Fernie riding, wns given fifteen
minutes to address the audience and
received a quiet, courteous aud attentive hearing, although one person
interjected that tbere were already
too many lawyers In the House. There
were cheers at thia but Mr. Fisher
countered very neatly with the retort
that his leader was not a lawyer
whereas Mr. Uphill's leader was. It
was Mr. Fisher's conduct through the
remainder ot the meeting and his
constant and frequently pointless
heckling of Mr. Bowser while thnt
gentleman was speaking that proved
a disappointment to bis friends und
lost for liliii nny modicum of sympathy which may have been extended at
tho outset.
The chair was occupied In a capable manner by Mr. A. II. Fenwick,
president of the Port Steele Consorvntlvo Association. Mr. Tims. I). Caven,
Conservative candidate for the Cranbrook riding, wns the first speaker.
Ho regretted that Fort Steele was not
now in Ills district. Ho had always
beeii gfven a good inn Jo', iiy from
Fort Steele, and solicited the same
loyal support for Mr. Uphill, He bad
nothing to sny against his opponent,
Dr. King, personally, but did not know
whnt policy or platform the Liberals
stood for and had been unable to find
out. He nlso referred to his record
In tho mutter of obtaining appropriations for bis district and expressed
confidence In his election on the 14th
of September.
Mr. Thos. Uphill, Conservative candidate for Pernio riding, spoke or bis
connection with the mining Industry,
and witli labor organizations. He also
proceeded to point out in what manner
the Government hnd helped Labor during the lust session by the enactment
of u measure such ns the Workmen's
Compensation  Act, one of the best
nets on the statute books of any province or stale on the continent, White
lias whs n laboring man and in sympathy wltli the laboring element he
would always be Just and fair and
work for the best Interests of all bis
constituents, Ho would support nny
measure which bad for its object the
development of the nntural resources
of  lllfl  province
Mr, Fisher Followed with a tirade of
abuso on Mr. Dowser who. ho snld.
makes the law-*, lulnilnlslers them and
then Interprets them, robbing the judl-
clnry of their rights in this respect. It
wus at this point the remark wus
made that there wero too many lawyers in tbe House already. Ho went
on to repent tho time-worn charge
or corruption, of spending twice lh
revenue of tlie province, of llie Brew
Ktor  writ  whicli  ho defended, ami of
tlio P. li. 13. railway.
The lion. It. P, Droon who followed
was subjected to more or less heckling ut the commencement or his
speech but beforo ho finished succeeded In overcoming this. Ho dealt largely
with Dominion mutters and us he bad
Just roturnod from a trip to tho Old
Land bad some very interesting information lo give in regards to our
soldier boys In tho Mother Lund. Mr.
Green bus a son now in khaki across
the water. Before (dosing he referred
to the taking over by the Dominion
Government under an amicable ar-
angement with the provincial government of the Banff-Windermere road
which would be completed by the
Government unci would cause a great
Increase In the tourist truffle through
this district.
The Hon. K. F. Bowser was given a
greut ovation when he rose to speak,
and delivered a speech free from trivial personalities or mud-slinging, never even referring to the plugging and
corruption which took place in the
Liberal Interests at the Vancouver
bye-election, He took his stand on the
record of bis Government, assuming
full responsibility for bis own actions,
for those of bis colleagues, and ulso
for the McBride Government during
Which time he acted us nttorney-gou-
oral. His speech wns a welcome
chunge Irom the petty personalities
and trivialities of so many politicians,
a manly speech und a fighting speech
if you will, lie expressed bis disappointment in Mr. Fisher who hnd to
stoop to n personal attack on himself.
He suid he did nol deal with personal
mutters, be left thnt for tbe voters in
his own constituency lo sny at the
polls whether he was worthy of their
itpprobiillon and support, oo appealed
for support purely on tlie policy of
the government.
The Premier briefly explained the
Shipping bill, through the provisions
of which eleven ships were now tinder
construction ut the coast, and how It
would benefit the lumber industry of
Eastern B. C. by conserving for tbem
the prairie mnrkets; the Agricultural
laonns Act: the mining development as
fostered and assisted under the measures brought down by tho Minister
of Mines last session, the measures
taken for the assistance of returned
soldiers, the soldiers right to vote, etc.
Coming to the charges of corruption
nud graft mnde by ibe Opposition, the
Premier    pointed    bow    conclusively
these charges had been dlsproven by
the three month's Investigation into
the records und expenditures. Taking
tho department of Public Works ns nn
example, although (90,000,000 bud been
spent since 1003 not n single dollar
wns misappropriated,
The meeting closed with God Save
ihe King nml three cheers for the candidates and thc Premier.

(Special to the Herald)
Athalmere, B. C, Aug. 8.—This evening Premier Bowser and the lion. U.
U. F. Green addressed u large and
enthusiastic meeting of the electors of
Columbia Riding resident within this
part. Though tired by having made
the trip by automobile from Golden, a
distance of some eighty-five miles In
which thc speakers had during tlie
dny addressed three meetings, yet none
of the old time vigor and sledge- hammer blows were absent from tbe
speech of the Premier when once he
bad warmed to his address.
The meeting was opened with an ad-
dross by Harold K. Forster, the ex-
member of the Legislature for Col-
imbla riding who introduced Hon. H.
F. Green, the member for the Federal
House. Hon. Mr. Geen In bis speech
made the Important announcement
that whatever differences that had existed between the Provincial Government nnd that of the Dominion had
been happily disposed of by Premier
Bowser giving up certain rights for
which the Dominion bad urged to control, and be went on to say thnt in due
time lie had not nny hesitancy In saying the construction of the missing
link in the international-transcontinental highway which tho Banff-Windermere road now formed, would be
built with tbe monies or the Federal
Every speaker dwelt especially on
the lact of Dr. Norman Taylor, the
Conservative candidate being away at
the front and thus unable to personally
canvass tbe electorate.. Mr. A, M.
chlsholm, the President of the Central
Conservative Association presided ns
chairman of the meeting. The attendance of Indies was particularly large.
Tiiere was a good attendance at the
Monday night drill of I). Co. of the 107,

in uur Protective System Which

The regular monthly meeting of tlie
city council was held Wednesday
morning, present -Mayor ciupp fu the
chair und Aldermen Santo, Balment,
Leask and Hanson. The minutes of
previous meeting were reud and confirmed.
A communication was road fron tin*
Underwriter's Association recomni .id-
ing three improvements In tbo matter
nf tire protection which would mean o
decrease in the rate for Insurnnc * If
the recommendations are acted upon.
They recommend 1st, the installation
of a standard fire alarm telegraphic
service; 2nd, an increase ln the number of cull men on the fire brigade to
sixteen, all call men to be paid a fixed sum per annum; 3rd, bring nll
electric wiring up to the standard to
conform with Underwriter's Electrical
Code, und appoint a competent man a8
electrical inspector, under whoso supervision all wiring will be done, and
give him authority to condemn all old
If these three improvements aro
put into effect tho underwriters wlll
reduce tho present rate by from lfi to
:I0 cents, for two and three from 10
to 20 cents would be allowed, while
for number three rrom 10 to lfi cents
would be allowed. This would be a
flat reduction from tlie insurance rate
now in force. The council took no
etion  on  tlie  mutter.
Tlie ('ity Engineer's report for the
montll dealt witli somo improvements
made to the sewage disposal works at
a cost to the city of $188.25, and the
engineer considers that this wlll be
sufficient for the present. He sayBt
"I nm highly sntisfled with the results
we have obtained thus far, as the effluent as It flows out of the pond Is
noticeably very clour and contains
none of thnt rungous growth which
used to cover tbe trays ot the artlfl-
clal filter nnd tend to choke It. From
tbe tests I have made on the effluent
which will finally enter the creel: T am
satisfied tluit no nuisance will occur.
Tlie city, I think, lias done its part and
further cleanliness In at. Joseph's
Creek can only be obtained by a similar care on the pnrt of outsiders, I
should particularly recommend tbat
the Government clean tbe creek out In
the vicinity of tbe old Standard Lumber Co.'s former mill.   There is a con-
lerable amount of staguntion in this
vicinity. If tbe Government sends a
sanitary expert around as was done n
year ago last spring this should bo
impressed upon hlm, and au attempt
mude to get the Government to provide the means."
The Engineer ulso bad a nice little
l)oiic|uet for tbe waterworks system,
nnd !t will bo good news to the cltl-
ns generally that the waterworks
system Is showing up so well. In his
report bo snys: "It is noteworthy and
very gratifying tbat at this time - f tl e
year when sometimes nearly all lawn
services in town are running that at
no lime has the pressure been moro
thnn five or six pounds less than normal. It speaks well for tbo efficiency
of our present system.
The engineer's report also dealt
with the work done on the streets and
sidewalks. He referred to tho number of broken sidewalk planks caused
by the horses and cattle at large in
tbe city. Many of the sidewalks are
getting pretty rotten, and while they
would lust lor some time under ordinary conditions tbey will not stand tbe
trend of heavy hoofs.
The matter of stock running at
large In tbe eity limits was discuss-
nd by tin* city fathers, nnd while the
condition wns very unsatisfactory lt
-lecmed hard to secure n satisfactory
remedy. A number of cattle and
horses hnve been run In by the chief
of police, but despite this cattle seem
to ronm the streets by day and night,
breaking and defiling the sidewalks,
and mnkiug of themselves a nuisance
The cows which are being horded by
some person are often as much of a
nuisance as others, nnd It was decided to lenvo lhe matter of enrorcing
the by-law to the Police Commission.
.Mr. Cummlngs, City Knglnoor, called the attention of the council to the
fact that the city pbone at the dam was
iir little use under present conditions,
as It was in un empty unused shod,
and suggested making arrangements
witb Mr. Malsey for tho use of his
phone In return for which Mr. Malsey
wns willing to rnko the dam to keep
it clear of obstructions. The following motion wns cnrrled: moved by
Alderman Santo, seconded by Aldor-
muu Balment, that the engineer bo empowered to hnve the present phone at
the dam taken nut, nnd to m.i''* '
rnngement for the payment of the
phono nt Mr. Mulsey's, In consideration of services rendered by blm.

Cranbrook, B. C, July tilth, ltlltt
It has always been a matter of con-1
jtolure why in the limiting of n really i
eievtr man, Providence saw    fit   t
leave out a'i t.'iu*. of common sense
This is apropos of that really delightful statement issued over the signatures of Sir C, li Tuppcr nnd the
leader of the opposition, ll. C. Brewster, re votes for soldiers. If anything more ridiculous or childish could
be written, it should !>■• embalmed.
When men write bucIi a statement,
that Is to bo put In the hands of nun
in the trenclieB fighting for the honor
and absolute oxistoncd of the Emplro,
their lives fu Incessant danger, men
who ure mon, with sense enough to
compare the drivelling pettiness of the
appeal with tlio hard fads Of tlieir
dally duty, what lu thn world do tlu*
writers expect? We all know that we
Canadians have a great strain of humour in our make up (the only exceptions being probably Messrs. Tupper
and Brewator) It certainly is necessary; bat tills goes biyond a Joke;
every sense of decency is outraged,
and it looks like a pretty solid attempt
to bring tin) politics or B.C, into wholesome contempt, a worthy supplement
of the plugging scandal.
Tlio atrocious comparison of the
state of the poor Belgian people with
the slate of tlie residents of our province, shows so little sense of proportion and is so miserably currish It is
bound to defeat its object. Tlie writers
certainly desorVe tho condemnation of
all to so belittle the sympathies due
to the boubly unfortunate Belgians,
Wo do not mean to say that the Act
conferring votes ou tho soldiers Is
perfect, but we do say that there is not
the slightest necessity to talk of
wholesale corruption, extravagance
and Incompetence, particularly after
the unsuccessful attempt, of the Liberals to find some illegality that they
could hang the Conservative Qovernment with. This Tupper and Brewster statement is au insult to the lu-
tolllgonce of the soldiers, a libel on
the Qovernment and a sad commentary
ou the morals of the writers who evidently Judge other people by themselves. *
The annual report of the Minister of
Mines is now ut hand and naturally
wo In this district turn to that purt
of the report which affects Southeast
Kootenny, and doing so read what It
very disappointing with respect to tin
two districts we have been led to be
Have have great possibilities, Ht. Maryland Perry Creek. Tlie latter is at
present the more Important, bolng tin
one free milling gold quartz camp or
this district In which no other ore oc
curs in quantity.
If It Is not a free milling gold camp
Perry Creek is nothing, und the district is naturally desirous, considering the importune,- of a camp ou such
a large scale as It is, of obtaining
confirmation nf its belief for the purpose of getting capital to demonstrate
its commercial value. Unfortunately,
the report does not confirm the* various statements and rt'ixirlt*. of other
engineers who havo made a study of
the section and it is much to be regretted that a really comprehensive examination wus not made; tin. government
engineer agrees that tlie veins are very
persistent and wldo and says there
seems no reason to doubt that they
extend to great depth; the only question, therefore, Is one of values. It \t>
tho values, therefore, thut will make
or mar tin* camp as evory other factor
Is favourable. Knowing this, surely the
sampling should have been done in a
proper manner, not a piece picked here
and there, but a systematic sampling
that would have carried conviction;
there is no doubt that sampling low
grade free-milling ledges Is a specialty and lakes time, the breaking up
anil quartering down Is monotonous
work but the Importance of it is
absolute, and if it takes a weok to
sample one mine It should be done, If
any dependence is to be placed on the
examination; condemnation of n property on mengre sampling Is not to
be commended, and engineers should
be particularly careful about this; If
there Is not sufficient time to conscientiously sample a property It Is better
not to sample It at all. Grab samples
and picked samples are absolutely use-
less In determining low grade values;
getting true snmples of wide low grade
quartz ledges Is luborious work and
should only be done by those who
havo had the experience, and can bc
done only by conscientious application to duty. Meanwhile the district suf
fers from such mistakes.

is nothing more nor less than a suggestion that all winning*; fn election

otlier of theso two funds. Tho Review
goes on to say:
There should be no serious objection
to the suggestion. (Vrtnluly tiie winner
is nothing out of pocket by turning
over his winnings and as for the loser,
ho won't worry; his money Is gone
anyway. As a matter of fact such a

According to the evidence obtained
hy Hie local government board, the
town of Scott. Sask., has a total liability of $127,000.00, with a population
of less than 360 peoplo, representing
about 60 residential ratepayers; and
to expect this handful ni' people to assume these burdens is as ridiculous as
it is linposslbl, declares tlie Scott
Herald. Scott, like many another
place on tin* prairies, had visions of
city garb. It was simply going to be
great, that, was back in the boom days.
Now it is a village and Is not likely
to be more than a village, Just us
other dream cities of 1910-11-12, It
went into debt to garb itself in city
fashion, Scolt. is like a multitude uf
other places. It was going to grow
and grow until It became tlie metropolis oi a great district. Western Canada in those days was to liave almost
as many great cities as school districts; there was Just about a city on
the way or dreamed of In every district. Scott has Its debt, it has its
public utilities but it hasn't tlie people
to pay the Interest on Its obligations—
what is it going to do? Scores of
other village-cities would like to 11 live
an answer that would solve the problem. If they could get it they might
even offer some of the municipality's
issets in payment for Information
Scott is just an example of a favorite weakness of the past and an example to municipalities of a weakness
to avoid lu Hie future.

(Continued from last week)
Tho Franco-British offensive on the
Souiiiu* opened ou July 1, lflltt. It wus
preceded by a bombardment of unparalleled duration and intensity, featured by the appearance of new gigantic British howitzers. Under this aw
iu; hurricane of big gun fire the Qer-
tnau first line defenses crumbled.
When the British and French truops
advanced tliey reported thut they found
trenches lu which there was not a single survivor, only the dead guarded
ihe silent rifles and machine guns.
Oerman ilrst lines were carried over
an extent of X. miles and tlie second
positions pierced at certain points but
up to tlu; present fighting bus been
indecisive in so far as the forcing of
thu Germans to withdraw their main
line is concerned. The lighting has
been of tho bitterest possible description und the reports of press correspondents at the front teem wltll accounts of the most amazing heroism
and devotion of both sides. Instances
have been recorded of the sole survivor of u company, wounded and with
out hope, who manned a machine gun
and ]eught to tlte lust amid the bodies
of his comrades, of Isolated detach
ments who stood off their foes for
days until succor reached them, or
death; of captured surgeons who
humid up the wounds of their captors;
of heroic rescues of wounded comrades
under fire uud of countless similar
deeds that thrilled the watching world.
First .Move uf Offensive
The first move iu the great offensive
was not made by the Krunco-Brltlsh
however, but by the Russians. On
June •! the troops of Emperor Nicholas
opened a tremendous assault on the
Austro-Germun lines of a three hundred mile front extending from the
Pripet marshes to Rumania. The Teuton lines held firm in the north but
to the south General Bruslloff swept
with irresistible force through tlie
AUiitri.il! defenses, tearing a great gap
about 100 miles in extent. Through
tills tlie Russians poured, capturing
Czernowltz, the capital of Bukowina
and overrunning the crowuland. The
Austrian losses are declared to have
been enormous, a month after the
offensive began the Russians making
an olllclal announcement that over
iOO.OOO prisoners had been taken uud
at least un equul number killed und
As the offensive developed the Russians won new successes further north
aud at the close of the year ate engaged In a miglitly struggle for Lem-
berg, the capital of Gulicia. Tlie fighting has ulso extended to the extreme
north in the Kigu-Ovlusk region, but
hero the Germans have held tlieir own
uud no decisive result lias as yet beeu
gained by either side.
In another theatre of the war the
year wus marked by other and im*
portant Russian successes. Following
the disasters on tlie eastern front In
the closing month of lDla the Grand
Duko Nicholas was removed as Com,
mander-ln-Chlef of the Russian armies
aud sent to take charge of the operations against the Turks in the Caucasus. After months of preparation lie
began a great drive across Armenia
iu January, 1010, which resulted in the
capture of Erzerum and the port of
Treblzond and expelled the Turks frum
tho greater pnrt of Armenia. After u
comparative lull of somo mouths the
Orund Duke resumed his advance simultaneous with a serious uprising
against the Turks by thc Arabs In
Arabia. The Arabs took tlie sacred
city of Mecca, Jidda!) and Tail', unit
besieged Medina, the city where Mohammed was burled and one of the
holiest spots of the Mohanimeilan
world. Iu the meantime the Russians
took Miimakbutun and Biilburt, Imt
these operations have not yet reached
a definite conclusion,
Severe Reverse
In connection with the Turkish campaign tlio year saw n serious reverse
for the Franco-British arms aud a less
Important, but highly dramatic, disaster for the British, The disastrous attempt of the French und British to
force the Durdanclles and seize Constantinople was definitely abandoned
in November, 1916, und the allied
troops withdrawn from the Oulllpolf
peninsula.   About lr.o.ooo troops hud
been used In this venture, supported
by u considerable fleet. Six armored
ships, live British and one French,
were sent to tlte bottom us well as
■some minor craft ami tbo casualties
were unofficially reported to be almost
equal to tlie original number of tho
expeditionary force. This was tlle result of six months of some of tin* most
sanguinary lighting of the wur.
The second disaster of the British
was tiie surrender or 11,000 troops un*
dor Oeneral Town send to the Turks
ut Kut-EI-Aiiiura ou tiie Tigris. Tills
expedition had made a sonsutionul
dash more than ,100 miles up the rlvei
in un attempt to seize Bagdad, It was
within 10 miles of the city when It
wus decisively beuten by tlie Turks
and forced to full buck 100 miles. Here
it was surrounded and forced to surrender after a relief force luul made
several vain efforts at rescue.
Two new nations entered the ranks
of the belligerents during the year. On
October YA, litlfi. Bulgaria threw in
her lot with the Central Powers and
on March il, 191-ti. Germany declared
war on Portugal nfter tlie republic
had seized all Oerman ships Interned
iu her ports.
Tho entrnnco of Bulgaria Into the
orona was -signalized by a combined
USBault on Serbia by Austria, Germany
and Bulgaria which resulted In the
complete overwhelming of tho hopelessly outnumbered Serbluns and tin
subjugation of their country. Tho
remnunts of the Serblun army were

us well as a large British army from
■Igypt.   Tliis combined force is presumably being held for uu attempt to
vrest Serbia from the Bulgarians.
Offensive  Against Italy
Tliu principal success won by Austrian arms during the year was a greal
(tensive undertaken against Italy lu
May. The Austrian forces swept the
Italian Invaders back over a wide
stretch of country iu the Southern
Tyrol, reconquered about -70 square
miles of Austrian territory and carrleu
the battle Into Italy. The Italians
rallied, however, and at the clOQO of
'.lie twelve months had gained a large
portion of ground and were vigorously
pressing u couiiter-oconsive iu accordance with the plans of the Entente
fur concerted action.
On the sea the year witnessed an
event of surpassing Interest. The
German grand fleet, steaming out from
Its mine fields ami Impregnable harbors at Kiel and Wllhelmshuven, engaged the British fleet In the mightiest
naval battle of history. The battle
was fought off tlie coast of Jutland
on May SI, and resulted In the Germans being driven off tlie seas; only
a hasty retreat during the night saving
them from annihilation, in the ilrst
stage of the battle, the British battle
cruiser squadron under Admiral Beatty, vastly outnumbered, fought the entire German high sens fleet, Towards
evening the grand fleet, uuder Admiral Jellicoe, arrived on tlie scene,
and the enemy scattered in tlie mists,
which alone saved hlm from total disaster. Losses on either side were very
heavy, Britain losing .three battle
cruisers, and the enemy an equal and
perhaps greater number of capital
ships. Since the battle the British
command of the Nortli Sea lias been
One otlier event on thc sea aroused
intense interest. On June Bth, Field
Marshall Farl Kitchener, Great Britain's famous minister uf war, was
tlrownod wltli his staff off the Orkneys
when the cruiser Hampshire went
down. It was at lirst thought the
cruiser had been ttie victim of a submarine but tliis theory was generally
discarded when it. was learned that
tlio warship had struck a mine and

A well attended meeting of the Wasa

Association was held at the Wusa Hotel on Saturday, July 30th.
Mr. Quartly was appointed to tuke
the chair und iu u brief speech remarked on the possibilities of the Association in sucli a good ranching district,
and he was of the opinion that the
Association was not being putronized
as it should be by the several ranchers
and business men of the district. Tlie
Association had beeu formed ut considerable trouble and expense, and tlie
Government hud been good enough to
come forwurd with a fairly substantial
donation, and It was certainly the duty
of everyone iu the neighborhood to do
their utmost to help to advertise the

Labor Has
Condemned The
Prohibition Act
Trades and Labor Councils ol
Const Cities Pass Strong
Resolutions — Reasons why
Workiugmeu Should Vote
Against the Kill.
Organized labor has declared Its
position   with   reference  lo   the   It.  C.
Prohibition Act was no uncertain
sound, the result of close Investigation
of and keen discussion ou tlie Hill having resulted iu the straight decluration
hy tho Const labor bodies thut the Aet
should be condemned and that the
worklngmen oi British Columbia
should do all in tholr power to dofont
the measure at tlle polls.
Tlio Vancouver Trades and Labor
Council, Hie most, representative central labor organization iu British Columbia, -at its mooting ou July 20th,
passed a strong resolution against tho
Act, tiie. closing paragraph reading as
"Resolved thut the Trades and Labor Council in Vancouver, It. (*., iu
harmony wltli representative bodies of
organized labor elsewhere "places Itself
on record us opposed lo the British
Columbia Prohibition Act and to the
principles involved therein."
In adopting the above resolution tin*
Vancouver Trades Council was but following tlie steps of the New Westminster Trades and Labor Council whicli
on June 14th passed the following
"Resolved that this Council go Oil
record as opposed to prohibition as
contained in tho proposed Bill, from an
economic and social standpoint and
report this decision to the various unions \Kith the request that they help
to defeat the Bill."
The resolutions above noted are In
line wltli the action of the Victoria
Trades ami Labor Council and the
Prince Rupert Labor Council.
Woikingmen have u "Klek'Meining
Ttie discussion in connection witli
the passage of these resolutions allowed plainly tliat worklngmen believe
they have a just "kick", in connection
with tbe Prohibition Act. It wns stilted that the measure Is class legislation of the rankest type Inasmuch ns
it allows the man of means to secure
ill the liquor he desires by Importing
it from outside points, but at the same
time places a handicap on tlie workingman who can only afford to buy his
beer by the glass, This argument is
directly nloug Hie line of the remarks
of Mr. Parker Williams, member for
Newcastle, on discussion of the Bill
iu the House, when he openly declared
tlio Act to be class legislation and
-stated thnt white be "would vote for
Prohibition that would prohibit he
would never bave anything to do witli
such lop-sided, Jug-handled imitation
such ns the present Hill,"
Tho Act ls also objectionable to
trades unions inasmuch as many of Its
clauses were declared to be un Brltlsii
nnd unfair. It wns pointed out that
clause 20 provided tlmt any person
could tell u constable that he suspected n man had liquor illegally In his
possession. On tliis Information, and
without disclosing the name of the in
former, tlie constable could enter i
man's house, break into all the rooms
closets, etc., without a warrant. Sucl
provisions were severely criticized by
members of the labor councils as absolutely opposed to the British Idea
that "A man's house Is his castle."
In taking the i ctton they did, the
councils were also moved by the feeling tliat they should support the largo
body of worklngmen who are to-day
either directly or indirectly engaged in
connection wltli tbo operation of licensed premises. It wus stated Hint
.1700 men ure now thus employed and
that C000 persons are dependent upon
them for a living. This does not Include over 1200 employees of licensed
premises who are now at the front.
As the Prohibition Act would mean
that these men would be thrown out
of work, the councils considered Hint
legislation lending to such action, especially at Ihis time Bhould be vigorously opposed.
Many delegates who look part in tin*
council discussions snld that they were
Prohibitionists, Tbey slated, however,
that tliey were opposed lo the Act because It wus not a Prohibition Act In
any renl sense of the term, provision
being made iu It for Ihe purchase of
liquor by Importation or otherwise
lust as freely ns is now tho enso. They
plainly stated that Ihey did not consider a vote against the Prohibition
Act a vote against the principle of Prohibition, ns to their minds, tlie passage
of such an act as wns proposed would
not In any way lesson tlio purchase or
consumption of Hquor. As a matter
of fact, although It might, tend to decrease the consumption of health giving beer (the workingiiien's usual beverage), it would actually Increase the
consumption of whisky and spirits, a

I have an Idea—a crazy one If you
like—that our politicians us a whole
are not quite expressing the mind of
I this country and if a word to the wise
Is allowable I would suggest that If
instead of wasting so much energy as
they do and in the way they do, political aspirants would endeavour to get
some clearer Idea of what the majority
are thinking—the majority outside executives, etc.—they might be surer of
their majorities und he better servants
of the public.
I've been reading the papers, the
political organs -tliey are not in any
real sense newspapers—someone Bends
them to me from the Const. They nre
of all colors aud shades of political
opinion. I will tell you what I think
of them—may 1? Is such freedom of
speech allowed? I um un ordinary.

the Journalists who are employed by
tlie various parties imagine that average voters are Influenced or convinced by the "uiud-sHuglng" methods
adopted all round? Do not our leaders

want to respect our Government but
how can I when a month or so before
election time every blessed politician
lias his character besmltchcd hy every
other blessed politician? Who can I
believe? I begin to despise tlie whole
crew -that Is the result of reading
party organs, of all  parties.
When a man comes along with an
intelligent political program and with*
mt troubling to sling mud (after ull
big men don't do tliat—it's a child's
