One of the most enthusiastic
Conservative meetings of the present
election campaign so far was held
recently at the Eureka School, near
Roosvllle. There had been no meetings held there before by either party,
it is understood, and Dr. Rutledge,
the candidate, and Col. Clayton, who
were the speakers, got a splendid reception. Mr. Lancaster was the
chairman at the meeting, and thc
speakers touched among Other things,
on the matter of the development of
the rural sections, and the question
of extending to them the facilities
that go to make farming more attractive, and farm life more complete.
From the reception accorded the
Conservative emissaries, it will be a
disappointment if the poll in that district does not show an overwhelming
Conservative majority.
The election campaign Is now apprnucliini; its final stages. With the completion of
nominations the linos of battle have heen set and lhc issues have been presented to the
electorate, There may lu- a platform discussion of lhe tariff, Ihe budget question and
other problems, hut one issue stands out clear above all others and dominates the election—
the administrative record of the king government, in a country like Canada, sound, ef.
fiik-iil anil honest administration is a thiux of fundamental importance to the well-being
of thc people. Excellent laws may he passed, hut unless well and honestly administered, they
can bring no benefit to the community, and further legislation might as well cease until there
if some guarantee of dean and efficient government at the seat of power in Ottawa, But
the record of Mr. .Mackenzie King and his chosen colleagues since 1921 makes it plain that
from Ihem al least there can be no such guarantee. Ihey have allowed administrative standards to fall to a lower level than ever prevailed before in Canadian history.
The facts clearly proven before the special parliamentary committee leave upon the
King governmenl a burden of guilt and responsibility for errors and misdeeds which should
sink most of them without trace on September 14th, unless the electors are completely blind
to Iheir own interests. The record of the government's dereliction of duty in connection
with the Customs Department Is crystal clear, for the evidence goes beyond the possibility
of challenge.
The daily growing revelations nf the shameful methods hy which Its candidates and
their agents manipulated elections last October ought also tn disqualify it from securing a
further lease of life.
Since (he war some sixty-seven countries huve raised their tariffs. The United
States, Canada's chief competitor, finds it to he iu her best interests to further protect her
own industries against the lower-waged industries of other countries. Canada has not increased her tariff schedules, but instead has lowered them in a number of cases, and the
policy of the late government in this respect is a primary reason why hundreds of thousands of Canadians have heen forced to cross the border to secure employment and prosperity during the last three years.
What can the Conservative government do for the country? liy granting a reasonable measure of protection for the development of the natural resources and the carrying on
of legitimate industry in this country, it can help build up national payrolls. This does
not imply an indiscriminate raising of the tariff, or an increase in the cost of living, but the
development of Canadian industry, affording additional sources of employment, more freight
for thc railways, better conditions for Canadian labor and the development of an internal
competition that will in itself regulate prices to the consumer,
| The development of Canada as a whole—not a spirit of opportunism or one-class ben-
| efil—not a vascillating  policy that sets the  V. est against the Kast—but a program of sane
j up-building to weld this homogenous Canada into a unified and robust self-expressive na-
I tion—this is the goal aimed at hy the policy of the Conservative party,
g Think well on it.

the address of K. 1.. Maitland aud Col.
W. B. Clayton, of Vancouver. Mr.
Maitland was at tbe top of his form,

he levelled at the Liberals,    '

Two Alternative*
I Col. Clayton, the first speaker,
claimed that the failure of group government had forced them into another
election and that there were now two
alternatives, the continuance of the
present system or the election of a
party with strong Conservative platform <uch as Mr. Meighen enunciating throughout tbe Dominion.
He pointed out that in tht* election
of 1926 the Liberals were defeated
"ii the issues which so far as the
Conservative party were concerned
are just   the same  today.
Now the Liberals had lost control of the election machinery, which
they bad used to the utmost, and hnd
instead the customs scandal to face
and election scandals in various
places. As far as the Progressives
were c-ncerned, he said they were
not to be trusted by either'party.
As to the constitution. Col. Clayton
said that the Liberals had not proved
theniselve- good guardians of it.
The Budget Exposed
The speaker next took up the Kobb
budget, and by carefully analyzing
it showed that it did not contain all
the consolation that had been made
out. He showed that how, under the
rking of the high tariff principle,
industries of Canada had reached

Bad Wreck Near Hope
A considerable quantity of lend
from Trail Smelter for export purposes, was involved in the wreck a few-
days ago on the Kettle Valley line, a
few miles from Hope. A freight
train in two sections going down a
grade got out of control, and the first
pnrt of it went off thu track at a trestle bridge, taking many cars with it.
Four members of tne train crew were
killed, nnd in the fire which broke out
following tbe wreck it is feared that
others slealing rides hack to tbe coast
were also lost. The second section
of Hu? train was saved from the wreck
by the heroic action of the crew in

that J. S. W liworth had informed
him that   If Labor could elect twelve
more representatives they would be
in a position to get much beneficial
social legislation |iut through, if conditions as to the parties at Ottawa
remained ns they were at present,
which he expected.
The legislative program of the Lahor party, Mr. Sims said, included
measures for old age pensions, health
and unemployment insurance, total
disarmament, abolition of the senate,
doctoral reform, and national ownership nf the bunking channels, nationalization of the resources of the country, and other reforms.
Nol   Entitled to Credit
He was not inclined to give Dr.
King,or the Liberals any credit for
what tiny hove attempted to do in
regard to putting through old age
pensions lust session. Such a measure bad not been mentioned in the
speech from the throne, and it was
not till Ibe party had been threatened
with defeat that they had considered
bringing in such a measure, in an
effort to enlisi sympathy from the
Labor and Progressive members.

of the many scandals which had been

of strikes, Mr. Sims claimed that the "'
criminal code should be amended to

strikes were not all over, and that
workers should have the same privileges as the masters. Amendments to
the immigration act should also be
made so that the government could
not deport to other countries persons
charged with certain offences during
the strikes. The legislation which
they would put through would not
only be possmle, but practical, essential and constructive. He referred
to the whole army of B.C. politicians

Mr. T. 11. Bronsden in a short but

movement the country would he relieved of the distress and suffering of

prior to election.
Customs   Scandal
Mrs. .Smith had discussed the customs scandal and asked wliich of us
would not smuggle a pretty dress or
an extra pair of shoes, nr a shirt or
two, and compared the scandal with
"If," said Mrs. Chalmers, "you
niuggle goods across the line, you
violate the law, but at least you take
the risk. But in the customs scandal
ise people smuggled carloads of
goods with the customs authorities'
assistance." That the cabinet ministers knew it was going on was evident
by the findings of the Duncan report.
The speuker read many extracts from
the Duncan report, and then Dr. King-
says "there is no customs scandal."
Protective tariff was fully discussed
by Mrs, Chalmers, who pointed out
the benefits of protection to the farmer as well as manufacturers.
Mrs. Graham moved a vote of
thanks to thc speaker.
Mrs. Chalmers also addressed u
meeting   at   WycMll'e   on   Wednesday
oven ing, when she replied quite extensively tn the remarks of Mrs. Mary
Ellen  Smith  in  West  Kootenay  re.
On Friday night, James Sims, th
Labor candidate in the East Kootenay
tiding, addressed a meeting at
Kimberley, which while not larg.
ly attended, gave him a gootl hearing.
It constituted the first appearance
at a meeting of the candidate, and a
number of ladies were present among
the audience.
Jas. Henderson, Cranbrook, acted
as chairman, and said Mr. Sims had
been 211 years in the district.
The candidate said that it was not
his intention to retire from the race,
despite rumors to g-thnt ollVet. He
referred tb the prejudice against Labor in polities, but felt there WW
plenty of room for a party that
could inject new vim. aiid a new viewpoint into the situation. The Labor
party, he said, had nothing in common wilh either lhe Liberals or the
Conservatives, and he justified the
entry of Labor into the contest here,
saying it was entitled to some say in
the government. It was the first
time that the party had been in the
contest   in   Kast   Kootenny.
The Labor party would change the
economic anil social conditions, and
he outlined the principal planks iu
the Labor platform, as old age pen
sions, health insurance, election re
forms, change of immigration roguln
tions, senate reform, penny postage
and changes in the income tax la
Me appealed to the electors to vote
from the standpoint of the economic
viewpoint, rather than the political.
Prank Load, of Cranbrook, agent
for Mr. Sims in the election, also
spoke, referring to the tariff and also
to the attitude of Labor on the strike
problem. He urged strong support
for Mr. Sims.
Mr. Henderson, the chairman, in
also endorsing Mr. Sims, said he had
been in the district with the C.P.R,
for twenty-three years. In his concluding remarks, Mr. Henderson said
that while Mr. King said Mr. Meighen
was not fit to govern, Mr. Meighen
also said Mr. King was not fitted
either, and he believed hnth of them
were right.

Accident   at   Wycliffe   Bridge
One evening last week when returning from the Otis Staples Co, mill,
D. Pagliardlni, driving thc Blue
Cap stage, met with an accident
which by the merest chance was without serious results? Coming down the
hill towards the bridge at Wycliffe
the driver was unable to negotiate
tho turn and crashed into the guard
rail on the right hand side of the
bridge. The force of the impact
drove the heavy railing; off, the car
coming to a stop with the front
wheels over the bridge. It i.s hard
to say what might have happened had
the car been going a trifle faster.
The approach to the bridge has
been tho subject (tf criticism for some
time, it heing hoped that when the
bridge is re-located that this danger will he eliminated. In the meantime it might be well if the government could look into the matter and
moke the present approach as safe as

Commencing with a large parade, the
day was enjoyably filled with sports
of all kinds, culminating with a torchlight procession by the Dokkies, and
a splendid dance iu the evening. A
large number of local people attended
the sports. It would be, however, a
great convenience to out-of-town visitors if the Fernie business places

and keep the shops open until one
o'clock on celebration days.

to bark up his assertions.    Mr. Sims
and  Ids  companions   made  quite   an

the fact that the rains have heen accompanied by cold, heavy winds does
not lend to make things any brighter. The holiday [dans of many local

September 8,1926    (29-31)
For Hritish Columbia, the speaker
and two letters, one from Attorney-
General   Manson  and  another from
Premier Oliver.    Air. Mnnsnn's letter
as  follows:
Victoria, Feb, 5th, 1925,
The matter has heen carefully considered hy the government and the
rovincial Legislature at its last session, and the concensus of opinion
is that the matter of old age pensions
is one entirely in the sphere of the
Federal parliament."
Mr, Manson repeated this on March
5th, 1926, in which letter he said
that the subject was one for the consideration of the Federal and not the
Provincial parliaments.
Premier Oliver wrote on June 2nd,
"Should the parliament of Canada
pass legislation along the lines suggested. I presume the question would
then arise as to whether or not the
province would co-operate."
Passing on to old age pensions,
Mr. Clayton claimed that the government was never serious with it, but
that the final passage of the bill was
an emergency case, He read a series
of questions put to the government
hy Leon Ladner. The first, on March
15th,   1920, was as follows:
(1) "Is it thc intention of the
government to call a conference before July of the premiers of the provinces of Canada?"
Answer  by   Premier  King:  "No."
(2) "Is it tho intention of the
government to present to such conference or some later conference any
proposal respecting old age pensions'.1"
Answer: "This is answered bv an-
swer No.  1."
(3) "What steps, if any, have
been taken to call together such conference?"
Answer: "Up to the present time
no steps have been taken."
Never   Intended   to   Pa-it
The speaker then went on to point
out that there wa? no mention of the
Old Age Pensions Bill in the speech
from the throne, but that after their
legislation had been planned, and the
speech from the throne had been debated, there arose the blackest scan-
ilal in the history of Cauda. With
his back to the wall fighting for thc
possession of the election machinery
which had proven so valuable in Peace
River and Athabasca, and needing
every vote that he could muster, the
Premier paced Dr. King and told him
to prescribe an old age pension bill—
any bill would do—but get it through
and rcI it through quickly. Mr. Maitland then reviewed the bill, pointing
out the nipper in the woodpile with
regard lo the conference with the.
premiers. He Maud that Mr. Meighen
had promised nn old age pensions bill,
thai would be drawn up and
would be a workable one. He asked
nyone point lo a promise made
by Meighen that he bad not kept.
In "der t.i show that it was not
the Tory aenate thai had killed the
bill, lie analysed the vote of the senile on the question) showing that
among those voting to kill the bill
Sir Allan Alyesworth, Minister
Df -lasi ac with Sir Wilfred Laurier;
Senator Turriff, only Progressive
senator in the chamber; Senator
Hughes, the latest senator to he appointed; while 17 Liberal senators
from Quebec "sneaked out," ai they
did nol waii' to vote for it. Gideon
Roborl on, I otucrvatlve, voted for it.
No Little Thing
II. claimed thai Ihe Liberals would
have peoplo believe that the customs
scandal was a little thing. He claimed thai McKenzie King had been advised as to condition-!, and refused ta
take any action, and that police of-
floor* had been ordered not to arrest
n single man without orders from
Bnisllon, and In thii way many escaped. He instanced one case where
a shipment came inlo Montreal consigned to a concern that did not exist,
and while ii was supposed to contain
cabbages it waa found to be rolls of
silk. He alio referred to the importation ol' prison made shirts. He claim
ed ihe Lib. nils had no right to come
strutting through tho country trying
to have its electors believe there was
nothing wrong.
Iii reference to the policy of the
Conservative party, it was one that
was constructive. Harry Stevens had
fought lhe distillers in thc interests
of the people, and he asked the voters
to go back and use their ballot realising that il was sacred. If they wanted to see Canada return to industrial
I prosperity, Ihey should voto for Dr.
' Rutledge.
| He concluded by an appeal to the
; people to return to power a party
; lhat would give good stable govern-
iment, one that would give confidence
1 to the business men of Canada and
to investors from outside; one that
would bring prosperity for the next
four years.
The meeting closed with a question
as to the possible influence of American actions ni framing up a Conservative immigration policy, which Mr.
Maitland replied to quite effectively,
nd won applause when he said that

ind the only object of the numberless meetings, the
newspaper announcements and all the other channels of advertising adopted, is to get the people
thinking, to drop icfeas containing the germ of-
thought that will spring to life in the consciousness
of the people who are to cast their ballots.
If, therefore, the electors will mark their ballots
after having njfasured up the parties in the field for
their record of the past, iheir attitude at the present
juncture and the possibilities of their respective
policies for the future, the result will reflect the real
feeling of the country.
ll must further be said, considering all the circumstances, thai thc chances favor the Conservatives. They have no entangling alliances lo cultivate
ui one part of the country and apologize for elsewhere. Thev have no necessity for compromise,
but can proclaim their policy with equal aptitude iu
all parts of the country. Its greatest advertisement
is ihe fact lhal the present active state of the mining
ment in the statutes ol the Conservative tariff prill-
industry in the lioot^jays is due to the chibodi-
ciple—Treasonable proteciioti for the development of

floods of oratory could win lhe election, the
Liberals have it. When there is a Dominion
election, during the life of the Liberal government
at Victoria, tha provincial administration is left to
look after itself, while the cabinet ministers take to
the hustings for their party friends. There has not
been so much heard this year of the cry to elect Dr.
King to get a friend at Ottawa hi sympathy with
the provincial government, because the hollowness
f the cry has been exposed. But look over this
list of ministers, members of the legislature, and
men high up in provincial Liberal councils who have
been campaigning for Dr, King in East Kootenay:
lion. Wm. Sloan, lion. A. M. Manson, Jan McKenzie, Chris. McRae, Mrs. Mary Ellen Smith, J. W.
deli. Farris, lo say nothing of Mr. Motherwell and
Capt. Shaw, of Saskatchewan and Alberta. Either
the Liberal record must need a lot of defending, or
else its chimercial policy must need a lot of elucidating—or what is more likely the real reason for
this oratorical onslaught—--it is felt that there is
danger of Kast Kootenay changing its political
EXTRAQ&from Liberal election publicity matter
"One hundred thousand deserving people ii
Canada have been kept in want because of a Tory
decision." This refers of course to the rejection
of the Liberal Old Age Pensions measure in the
senate late last session. But what an advertisement
such a statement makes- for a young country that is
supposed to have derived such benefits from five
years of Liberal administration!
, Wednesday evening, at Knox Presbyterian Church, Mr, Harold V. Anderson, the talented pianist of Spokane, who has been holidaying in the
Cranbrook district, favored with a
pinno recital which was much enjoyed
by those present, possibly the best
evidence of this being that after the
artist had played an ordinarily long
program of selections, and without
any accompanying artist, he was absolutely obliged to again return to
tha piano anil render another selection. Ah was the purpose of the
concert, the selections gave one an
opportunity of hearing and judging
of tht* merits of what is known as
the ultra-modern school of musical
Mr. Anderson, through his execution of the selections from Rachmaninoff and Scriabone, as well as those
from Chopin, showed that he was
equally at home in lhe rendering of
the more difficult technical pieces and
the more popular drawing room ballad of Chopin,
It was unfortunate Dial many other
events held on Wednesday prevent*

Preaident'a Special Train Here
A special train bearing E. W. Beatty, president of the C.P.R., and a
party of directors, on their annual
western inspection trip, passed

arrived about midnight -on Sundny.
It remained here the remainder of
that night, and went on east about
eight o'clock on Monday, without
making lhe trip to Kiniberley/which
Mr, Beatty usually makes as a director of the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co. The special train went
up to the main line by .way, of the
Kootenay Central.
Schools  Resume Work
The schools resumed on Tuesduy,
with a somewhat increased enrolment, though just what this amounted
to has not yet been learned, till- the
classes are properly graded and the
enrolment completed. At the high
school it is apparent that the first
year classes will number close on to
a hundred pupils, while the fourth
year course will not have as many
pupils as last year. At the Central
school there is one room less this year
than last, a grade seven room having
been dispensed with, though the total
enrolment will be larger than before.
Thursday of last week .buk Pat
terson, of Moyie, shift boss at the
concentrator, had the misfortune to
meet with a very serious accident
while working at the mill. He was
caught in a pulley and hi:

chinery, causing a double fracture of
the lower jaw, and a fracture of
the upper jaw, as well as having his
nose bndly smashed. Hill Kilgour,
who was first on thtr scene, rendered
first aid, and then the patient was
brought at once to Cranbrook, where
he wns seen by the doctors and given

hemently refuted rumors widely cir-

The Truth about
When the House opened in 1926 Old Age Pensions was
not included in the Legislation to be introduced.
On March 15th, 1926, Mr. Ladner asked:
1. Is it the intention of the government to call a conference before July of the premiers of the provinces?
Answer by McKenzie King: "No."
2. Is it the intention of the government to present to
such a conference or some later conference any proposal respecting Old Age Pensions?
Answer: "This is answered by Answer No. 1."
3. What steps, if any, have been taken to call together
such conference?
Answer: "Up to the present time no steps have been taken."
"The matter has been carefully considered by the government and the Provincial Legislature - at its last session --
and the concensus of opinion is that the matter of Old Age
Pensions is one entirely in the sphere of the Federal Parliament."
"The Old Age Pension is a subject for the consideration
of the Federal and not the Provincial Parliaments."
The scheme introduced by Dr. King-the present Bill —
makes each province liable for 50 per cent of the cost. Yet,
in violation of McKenzie King's promise, the provinces were
never called together.
Sir Allen Aylesworth, Minister of Justice under Sir W. Laurier, Turriff, the Progressive senator, and Senator Hughes, the last Liberal senator to be appointed-all voted against it-17 Quebec Senators didn't vote

The language of the British Government was more conciliatory than
its measures, On learning thut Coffee would accept £1000 for his captives, it "hastened to thank him for
bis food faith ami friendliness,"
Meanwhile, though it was known
early in November 1872 at Cape
Coast Castle the Ashanti army was
assembling, the Government took no
measure to guard against invasion.
Ashantis Cross the Prah  1873
In January, 1S72, the Ashantis
crossed the Pruh, killing men, carrying off the women and children and
burning the Fanti villlages. Nevertheless, mi February 12th, the report
of the invasion was discredited at

form a camp between Yancoomassle.

army numbered 57,DIM) men, and
Ashantis 84,000, If all who crossed
the Prah were present.
Kaeh army was encamped on a
hill from which the bush had been
cleared, and the encounter was described in the official report as a
"terrific fight lasting many hours,"
consisting in the boldest spirits on
either side, descending to the thick
jungle which covered tho Intervening
valley, firing away enormous quantities of ammunition and retiring.
Neither army would advance up to
the clearod ground. The Fantis lost
about one man In every three hundred, killed, and one man in every
hundred, wounded. They never
fought so well again!
Not a Heavy Slaughter
On April Uth they were again in
duped by Dr. Rowe to open fire, but
his brave subordinates, Loggie and
MeKellar, could not succeed
"flogging" them to the front. Next
morning the Fantis retreated and did
nothing more for the liberation of
their country.
On June flth Lieut.-Col. resting,
with 100 marines, having arrived, it
was decided to disarm the King's
party), and the Hollowing arrangements were made in conjunction with
Captain Preemnntle, the senior naval
oflicer. On June 18th, the neck of
land on which the King's party lived
was encircled by the Hussahs, being
sent along the beach towards Fort

up the Bejah, while as many soldiers

Martial law having been proclaimed, notices were issued that all arms
were to be brough to the castle. At
noon, as it was evident thert1 was
no intention of complying with the
order, the town was shelled and destroyed, the inhabitants passing out
to the westward under cover of some
palm trees and scrub. It was now
'reported that the ejected inhabitants
joined with the Ashantis, were advancing and Colonel Festing moved
to Fort deVere and after a skirmish
drove hack the enemy, capturing a
flag. The casualties were but one
killed nnd three wounded out of
five-hund red men employed. The
fire from the boats was so well
managed that it would hnve been
destructive to Colonel Festing's force,
as it was necessarily directed toward
where the iJussahs were stationed.

The Pit's by tery of the United
Church met in Nelson lust Tuesday
md Wednesduy, with some 21 delegates attending. A summury of the
mission work done in the great area
of this Presbytery was presented and
many encouraging features noted.
Dr. W. II. Smith, of Westminster
Hall, Vancouver, spoke of the work
of the theological colleges of the
United Church, and referred to the
immediate erection of the new college on the campus at Point Grey, the
first unit of which will be ready for
thc students this winter, und which
wiil cost $50,000. Induction services
for the new ministers ure to be carried out as in the Presbyterian
Church, and this is being done immediately. The chairman for the
year is Rev. R. G. S. Dredge, of Nelson.

At a meeting of the Ministerial
Association held in the Y.M.C.A. on
Monday afternoon several suggestions
for more effective service were discussed. The idea of a prize shield
for competition among the different
Sunday Schools was endorsed, and
also, lectures on sex questions to the
older boys and girls, to be given by
competent authorities. There was
also a suggestion that another religious canvas be taken of the whole
district, such as was done some five
years ago. This matter will be gone
into at the next monthly meeting.
Plans to have reviews of the latest
books, with' discussions upon them
is to be part of the year's work.
Rev. Tom Sykes, the well known
British preacher, and one of thc
most outstanding figures in the pul
pit today, will carry on a week of
special services in Nelson at the end
of this month. With Dr. Norwood,
of the City Temple, London, England, he is making a tour of Canada.
The latter has been commissioned by
the British Churches to express the
church's conviction that war is unchristian, and needless. Dr. Norwood, an Australian, has been meeting with tremendous receptions iu
Cunada and the United States, in his
advocacy of a war-less world.

It is common to have Christians
comment on non-Christians, but one
of the professors of an Indian college contributes a series of comments
on non-Christian opinions of Chris
tiun lunds. A Korean writes that
America manufactures her own God,
stamps it "Mado in U. S. A." aud
wraps it credal beliefs of its own
making. An Indian states that
American life is founded on three
motives—wealth, force and selfishness which express themselves in
maleiialism, militarism and nationalism; while a Chinese student wrote
that he observed the ebbing of spiritual life in America, ami the rudng
tide of social evils, the race arrogance, the lifeline of family life, the
increasing number of divorces, of
murders and daylight robbers, the
weak moral tone nnd the apparent
lawlessness, cerlainly create the most
painful impressions iu our minds. To
tell you the truth, one is templed to
ask if these people are really
Christ inns.

Last Sun day evening tht' joint
congregations of the Baptist aud
Presbyterian Churches had the pleasure of hearing Rev. W. T. Tapscott,
former pastor of the Baptist Church
here. Mr. Tapscott spent a few days
in town expecting to proceed to Red
Deer, Alberta, but while waiting definite instructions he was informed
that he was expected to preach in
Victoria. It is not known definitely
just where Mr, Tapscott will be located, but we can assure any Inquiring
people that those having the privilege of hearing Mr. Tapscott will be
blessed iu their work. In bis informal talk on Sunday evening Mr.
Tapscott gave a short exposition of
the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah.. Ik-
stated that the chapter had been part

had been the dominant factor in the

At a banquet held at Trail last
week, in honor of the visiting Vancouver Board of Trade, J. J. Warren, president of the Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Company of Canuda, was a prominent speaker. His
speech dealt with production of thc
Troll plant and contemplated work of
the future.
Mr. Warren sketched the magnitude of the company's smelting operations there, and predicted that the
ul put. valued at $30,000,000 last
enr, would be increased to $35,000,-
0(H) this year. He said the company
now employed, roughly, about 4000
men, all of whom were paid a minimum wage of $4 per day. The maximum depended on market conditions,
und un arrangement by which the
men shared with the stockholders the
increase in metal values. The monthly payroll exceeded $500,000.
Output Still Growing
He gave some illuminating figures
on production and marketing of lead,
zinc and copper. At present the
monthly output was approximately
10,000 tons of lead, between 5500
and 0000 tons of zinc and 800 tons of
copper, worth approximately $2,500,-
000 f.o.b. Trail.
Of last year's production, valued at
$80,000,000, only $0,000,000 worth
was marketed in Canada, The remainder wus exported to the Orient
an([ to Kurope, having a very favor-
aide effect on Canada's trade balance.
The port of Vancouver profited
largely by the export. It amounted
i<>, roughly, 10,000 tons per month,
through eastern ports between 5000
and liOUO tons monthly were shipped
io foreign markets.
He conveyed the impression that
very large extensions of the company's plnnt and operations in the \
Kootenay, for the production of commercinl iron, were a possibility. Iron
ores and sulphur found in the Sullivan ores hnd for years been piled
on dumps for future use. When Mr.
Itlnyloek desired the equipment to
trout these ores commercially, Mr.
Warren said, he would use his influence with the directors to procure the

United States early showed its complete bankruptcy from a moral point of view and its utter
failure as regards enforcement. Now its ill consequences from a social standpoint are becoming
To mention only one result, among seven million
people insured by the Metropolitan Life of New
York the death rate from acute alcoholism has
increased (inn per cent, since the enforcement of
prohibition was attempted. Which mean*, that, as
pure beer was taken from the people an illicit
trade in concentrated and easily handled liquor of
high alcoholic content, and mostly poisonous,
sprang up and drunkenness increased.
Recent deaths from poison alcohol, made from
motor radiator spirit, in Ontario and New York
afford an example of the harm of preventing the
use of light beverages such as pure beer. Tin-
flood of death-dealing poison, naturally, did not
affect Quebec, where pure beer is to be had by
the people in the most free and open manner.
The people of British Columbia are protected
against the danger that comes from making
distilled liquors a beverage for which they were
