THURSDAY,   DEC,   Hth,   191"
Helping a Qovernment maintain itself and solve its problems is infinitely more wortii while than helping to overthrow
it, and deluding the public into believing that a mere change of men will overcome difficulties that can be met
only by the combined power of the nation.
Tlie Auditorium on Monday evening
was tilled  to overflowing  with  the |
male and fotualo oloctors nl' tliis city
together    with   many    I'l'.iiii    mil side j
points   Who   dad   brt VOil   Kie   winter-1
like  weather  to  bear the  opening
shuts fired mi behalf of tin* Unionist
Qovornmont, when Hon. Martin Bur- J
rel, Socrotary o[ state, und Dr, Saul
Uonnoll, Unionist candidate for   this
riding appeared here.   P. W. Adolph
of Haynes Occupied tho choir and in
briefly opening the mooting after congratulating the citizens ef Cranbrooh j
and vicinity for having responded ao
well to the invitation to hear wlint;
the Unionist Government speakers in
the Interest of Dr. Bonnell had to suy.
took occasion to announce that heretofore, while be had heen allied to the
Liberal Party, he eould not under the
present national crisis do otherwise
than  follow  the dictates of liis con- j
science, and throw his energy in support of   the   Unionist   Qovernment I
which he bad concluded was entirely j
for the national welfare and he trusted tbat tbe audience lifter bearing Dr.
Bonnet I and  Hon. Mr. Burrell would :
be enlightened to the extent tliat their
conscience would dictate to them that
they  msu.t  give  their  whole-hearted
support In tbe InteruEt of the party
which has been formed purely tor the
benefit of the country and empire.
Dr. Bonnell in the course of his address reviewed conditions at the front
as he bad found tliem when serving.
there and emphasized how much the
boys at the front were depending on
those remaining at home for reinforcements.
He stated tliat he never hnd had
political aspirations until nt the pros-
tint time when he felt that he could
do more national good in ihis manner than by continuing to follow his
profession career, "The ptftple living
h*re In Canada, far away from the
.sound of the guns, cannot realize what
is going nn In Kurope," said Dr. Bon-.
null, "or we w'juid all have boen a
united people without differences of |
any kind and all unanimous in lending
assistance to the boy; at the front who;
have pone and started cur fight and
are still carrying on our battles." In
continuing when the doctor told the
audience thai he wa-- convinced that
the pe.iple of Cranbrook iu response
to that appeal to send troops under
the Selective Draft system to assist
those already in the trenches, the)
would answer thai npponl iiy snp|Ort-
hiK him as a representative .>f the
Unionist Qovernment whieh 1*^ pledged i
and will stand or fall on that pledge
to the boys at the Ireat. those remarks
were greeted with loud bursts of applause
Tbo Doi ivi then drew nl tent ion to ;
the revised scale of pensions us Inaugurated i>y tiie Unhnist Qovernment
which in tlie tola! amount payable by
Canada will he approximately forty
per cent increase and Is retroactive
from April of this year to nll disabled
soldiers, their wives and dependent
parents. The allowances to the children are increased from five dollars
per month to eight dollars for eacli
and (tvery child wltLOul any limit as
io number of children in a family who
shall receive the pensions.
Under the old scale of pensions formulated by tlio Joint committee bf tlie
House of Commons, these were graded
from one hundred per cent disabled
».i zero, In classifications of twenty
per cent disability. This method had
caused considerable discontent and
criticism inasmuch as a soldier classified as ninety-eight per cent disabled
received his pension under the eighty
per cent allowance, or one graded as
seventy-nine per cent disabled received only the sixty per eent allowance.
Under the revised scale these classifications have been altered to five per
cent graduations and In this maimer
the dissatisfaction heretofore existing
will bo entirely eliminated. Afi additional allowance is now granted
amounting to ninety-six dollars per
annum to married soldiers or their
In answer to tho statements made
by Dr. Bonnell's political opponents
that he was a machine politician, the
Doctor stated that tliis meeting was
the tiiird occasion at which he had
made a (tollttcal speech, and that in
all his career he had attended but one
political convention. "I am unfamiliar with the workings of political parties, but yet these men say I am a
machine politician. I nm not und no
one enn bring forth any argument
tltat I am, and I challenge them to do
In closing, the Doctor said, "I am
absolutely honest in iny statements
in tliis connection and while I have
only seen a little corner of the misery
over at the front, It Is because I realize what Canada is going through;
because 1 realize it my duty being In
Canada at tills time and from that
experience convinced thai we should
fulfill our obligation to the boys at
the front, that I am taking this step
and I am confident nt least sixty per
cent of tiie people of Kast Kootenay
«m December seventeenth will have
deposited their ballots for the Unionist
candidate<" The Doctor was given a
tremendous ovation as he resumed his

Extracts  from her letter follow:
"In your issue of yesterday's date
it is reported that 300 suffrage women loudly "cheered a plan to force

on the part of those women, either
ignorance or brutality. Kor if they
knew one-tenth part of the sufferings
which aro being endured by those
who havo already heen forced to lay

of sympathy In their hearts, they
would die of shame at having given
voice to such monstrous Inhumanity.

Rchke, "Is God's soul; It shall and

"My eyes wore opened to this truth
in Angina 1914. I was engaged In

was arrested by the Germans as a spy

Meanwhile another party, composed
chiefly of women and children, were
dragged up to witness the execution,
and at the finish were made to throw
up their arms and shout "Long live

"Do the 300 women who are clamoring for peace realize that already
Austria, Russia. Turkey, Bulgaria,
