Never in tlio eity of Crnnbrook hns

meeting than that of Friday night lust
Tin* largo auditorium waa packed to
capacity witli un orderly uml appreciative gutherinp: which ut times heeunie
wildly enthiisiiistie us tin1 Premier
drove home, point alter point, und replied with telling effeet to Dr. King's
statements. That the ladies are taking a keen interest in polities was
evidenced by tho largo attendance of
tlie fair sex, ami when tli.* franchise
is extended to tliem tliey will show by
their votes tliat tliey appreciate tlieir
new responsibilities, and will use tlieir
influence for tlie good of tlie province
und tlie betterment of political conditions.
Tho Premier, Hon. W. J. Bowser,
wns in great form and had the entire
audience with him right from the start,
liis sharp thrusts nnd witty sullies provoking great enthusiasm, He twitted
Hr. King for posing as a friend of Labor when be iiad been one of tlie lirst
to vote against the Eight Hour Day,
aad his excellent memory as to Dr.
King's record on the question of lumber protection proved unpleasantly interesting for that gentleman, He made
his appeal for support on the constructive record of his government, not on
the strength of election promises given
on tlie eve of,an election, and the optimism und confidence for the future
running through liis entire speech contrasts strongly with the blue-ruin forebodings of the opposition.
Mr. T, D. Caven, the Conservative
candidate for Cruubrook riding, wus
tlie lirst apeuker on the program and
lu an effective speech compared Iili,
record in obtaining appropriations for
the district witli that of Dr. King during tlie time thut gentleman wus member, stuting thut lie hud secured the
largest appropriations tliis district had
ever received. He challenged tlie Lib-
erals to show tlie electorate thut tliey

At tlie close of Dr. King's address

months of investigation had shown
that tlieir charges against tlie government were unfounded. Not a single
dollar hail been misappropriated. Mr.
Brewster had admitted tliis when committee made Its report to the legislature. He compared tlie government's
record with tlie Liberal plugging at
Vancouver und suid he was sure that
this disgraceful attempt tu defraud
honest electors of tlie effect of their
franchise would not find a single supporter nmong tlie Liberals iu the
audience. He concluded by outlining
the government's program of legislation aud declared tliat it was the most
progressive tlie province hud ever been
Mr. Thomas Uphill, Conservative
candidate in the Fertile riding, is improving us a public speaker and showed up to much better advantage than
in Fort Steele two nights previous.
He Is supporting the Conservative government liceuuse of measures it had
passed for the benefit of the working
people and hence for the benefit of the
whole province. Under the existing
workmen's compensation law, for example the mnximum compensation
payable is $1600, When tliis sum was
spent the injured man was older and
consequently in worse condition to
earn a living than when the accident
occurred.   Hut under the government's
bond. Every pledge in Ids manifesto,
every policy lie promised is heing carried out", sad It. F. Green who followed Dr. King.
"Thero is no question in the minds
of either Liberals or Conservatives but
thnt tiie legislation passed Inst session is in the best interests of tiie province. Notwithstanding that tlie province lias passed through a period of
hard times, better times ure coming.
There is proof of tliat In the activity
hi mining, lumbering nnd In the other
industries of the province", said Mr.
Green. "And this activity is being
fostered by the. provincial and Dominion governments."
Dr. King hud brought tip the Question of lumber duties, The Liberal
candidate was not correct when he
said the Borden government had promised higher protection. It had iot
If it had done so tlio higher protection
would have been given. His own pledge
was that lie favored higher duties and
would do all in liis power to. secure
them. He had done that. He had
worked in season and out of season
nnd lie would follow the saint* course
in efforts to secure greater protection
for any other industry in the province.
But the Dominion government hnd
aided the lumbermen in another way.
Tht1  Dominion  hail  named a   special

continued for life or as long ns the to enforce the dumping clause with

enables farmers to repay in easy instalments, he said.   Mr  Uphill admitted and was proud of the fact that hi

servutive policies nf protection.
"Hr. King waa not u protection lat
nf lumber in l!U! when Goodeve, who
cume from Rosalaiid ih Eeated him
right in ids own constituency of Cranbrook. Regarding ship building Mr.
Ilowser asked what the Ubernla Dr.
King admired so much hud done for
shipping when Bremler Borden hud returned from England und declared the
necessity for Canadian
perial service. Tiie Ui
King opposed it.
The prime minister then dealt wltli
the new policies he hnd placed in effect since he took ollice hist Decembei
and took the view that owing U
changed financial conditions it was
necessary for tin* development of Brl*
tis.h Columbia to bo regarded from ;i
mfferent viewpoint.
A fundamental principle of the private lite of every Britisher Is that
"A man's home Is his castle", and the
sentiment expressed by this motto is
.leaf to tho heart of every inun who
enjoys tlie protection of the British
ting. The B. C. Prohibition Act, without the slightest regard for this just
lorter, did to [uud dearly cherished right of the subjects, set this principle absolutely at
naught, and tramples it under foot.
Clause -IS of tlie Act provides that
nny olllcer of the law, provincial or
local, may, at any time aud without a
warrent, forcibly break Into the home
of nny citizen if he has the merest information or tin- least Idea that the
occupant of. tlie house possesses lhjnur.
.Not only muy lie break Into the home,
hut, having entered, he may forcibly
break open any closet, ehest, box or
receptacle In tlie house.
Tlte question as to whether such
methods are in accordance with Brilisli traditions and customs will he answered at once by one little word
which contains only two letters.
Another fundamental rule of British
llfo Is that when a man is attacked
through the process of law he has the
right tu know wiio is behind tlie prosecution. This just and time-honored
custom is absolutely thrown overboard

The meeting concluded
■Ilei'l's :
for  Premier Dowser nni
with a nation whoso unspeakable
cruelties uud trencheries havo horrified the world, we believe would be utterly futile and abortive.
Iu our opinion, such n pence would
assuredly be followed iu due tlmo by
another war, iu whicli the British Kmpire might have tu withstand the brunt
of adverse power unassisted and alone.
Iu such a humiliating mid immoral
peace us misguided pacifists are advocating, concessions uf a most dangerous kind would be Inevitable. In all
likelihood such stipulations would be
insisted upon as tu deny, or only partially concede tu Belgium mid Prance,
not to speak of Serbia and Hussla, Unit
restitution or amends fnr injuries,
many nf them irreparable, whicli common justice und the .law of nations demand.
To Canada sucli a peace would be
highly objectionable, if on any idea the
negotiations should ignore her claims,
whilst it would be equally objectionable to restore tu Germany those misgoverned territories won from her by
the valour of our African and Aus-
trallan fellow subjects.
We are proud of the gallant conduct
of our own Canadian soldiers who
have exalted the name of Canada, mid
by tlieir heroism have won a place iu
the very van of battle, side hy side
with the most renowned regiments
of the British service. We ure confident that they would repudiate what
WOllld be only u tmee wilh the enemy,
in fine, that not nne wounded Canadian soldier or fighter in the trenches.
and not one true Canadian man or
woman iu the Dominion would at this
incomplete stage of tin* wur, advocate
a premature and therefore a dangerous
peace. Our own desire for tin* Empire's
reconstruction, amongst other tilings,
Its security frnm future attacks, forbids it; and happily, we are assured
by the highest Imperial authorities
thut no such peace is contemplated,
save hy our enemies.
Whilst regretting several grave
blunders made during the war, we
commend its general conduct The
long continued policy of defense has
enabled the Allies to prepare thoroughly for offensive operations, and
now that a general and successful advance is being made ou all fronts, we
rejoice over It, and look forward to
its final triumph.
Though the Empire hus been bereaved of its great army organizer,
its matchless military genius, Lord
Kitchener, yet we feel confident that
through the application of the plans
he lived to complete, mid through
sound generalship, co-operating with
the brilliant and unconquerable spirit
of our Allies, the cause we fight for.
the cause of national ami Individual
freedom will triumph in the end.
This meeting contributes this reso- j
lution, believing It to be in sympathy
with  tlio wishes und convictions of:

vlnce of British Columbia,
