farmers is the showing of Siberian alfalfa made by Mr. A. 11. Smith. In all

In no district will the electors show
greater wisdom hy returning the Conservative candidate than hi this constituency, which Is so vitally Interested in the mining industry. Thoroughly
business-like in every particular, the
policy of the present government iu
regard to mining has been beneficial
to a degree which few have stopped
to realize. The work of tlie mines department in tiie past eight or ten years
in unifying the practice in the recorders' offices Ims been done quietly anti
uniisteiistatiously, yet its benefits to
the mining community cannot be overestimated. The absence of litigation
over questions of title in tbis province
Is a direct result of the wise administrative policy adopteil at Victoria in
this connecton. but the wheels work so
smoothly that few people stop to resize the difference between conditions
in Hritish Columbia and those In other

The province's splendid system of

chief concern of the Conservative administration, has made it possible to

"Blighty" she said, was the dearest

Describing tbe hospitals, Capt. Hen-

world were more completely equipped
for the care of all manner of ailments
than the Canadian held hospitals. For

but tlieir own and what is more needed in the work i- a sense of duty and

he might win ..um.- vote-: Dy making pre-election promises but the
course he has followed i:- one that is meeting with the approval of the
thinking people of British Columbia.
Mr linwsir pledged himself to put the Agricultural Credits Act
Into effect That has been done. The lirst million dollars is now being
distributed as fast as appraisers can complete their work.
Ib' promised the passage of the Workmens Compensation Act ami
the mot advanct d meaurc of the kind in the world is now on the statute
Aid to shipbuilding was promised. Tbe necessary bill was passed.
It was so well designed to attain tlie desired end Hint today 10 wooden
ships und 1 steel ship are being constructed to curry Hritish Columbia
produce, more especially lumber, to oversells markets,
Mr. Bowser pledged himself to the completion of ruilwnys under
construction, This promise is being fulfilled. Both tlie Pacific Great
Eastern ami the Canadian Northern have been set to work under strict
government supervision to complete the balance of their undertakings.
He promised an extension of tlie lumber mnrket-seeklng activities.
The fulfilment uf that pledge Is seen In an enlargement of expenditures
for tlie publicity work lu Ontario und western Canada tliat lias already
brought excellent results.
Premier Bowser promised assistance to prospectors and small
mine-owners. As a result legislation was passed tliat provides Tor construction of roads and trails to mine, for free assays for prospectors,
for free advice by government engineers, fnr Investigations nf now
discoveries, for leasing of expired crown-granted claims and fnr assistance in the establishment of the Prench process for treating complex zinc ores.
Aid to soldiers wus promised. Twelve acts fulfil this pledge. The
rights anil property of soldiers at the front are protected; tliey und
their dependents are protected during their absence against legal notion. Free land and money to develop It with are provided for the
returned soldier.
A Boparate portfolio nf agriculture was promised. It has been
created with Hon. William Manson nt ils head. The minister will now
give his whole attention to tlie development of tills Industry, iu the
same way that Hon. Lorne a. Campbell's work is the encouragement
of tlie mining industry.
Premier Bowser is a man of liis word, a mau to be relied upon.
Every pledge has been tarried out. Every voter on Sept. ll who casts
a ballot for a Conservative candidate will know exactly what policies
lie is voting for,

"Can the Public He Taughted to Uso
More Lumber?" Is the question asked
hy the Canadian Lumberman.
The answer undoubtedly ls In the
affirmative. Tho British Columblu
government through its campaign fn
prairie and eastern provinces has
veil It. The appropriations that
huve been made for market extension
work have brought excellent results.
Advertising activities of various kinds,
tnore especially In the newspapers,
have increased the demand ror British
Columbia lumber in Ontario as well
as lu the grain growing provinces.
This Is one of tlio things the government at Victoria has done fur the
lumhormen of the province. The expenditures made benefit the people aa
a whole. Enlargd aales of lumber
give employment to more men, Increase payrolls uud help the general
business of Hritish  Columbia.

Wherever the u. c Prohibition Act
bus boen discussed or studied, the
measure has steadily lost favor since
tho hitter part of May when It was formally passed by the Legislature without ono word from auy member of tho
House lu favor of the general principle
or tho details of the Aet.
Tho reason for this condition of affairs Is that the Aol la, on lis fair, nf
sueh a counterfoil nature and its terms
so absolutely contradictory to tho general meaning of the word 'Prohibition1,
that the puhlic lias cotHO to see lhal
the  Aet  will  not uccoiliplhill  |li<<  units
sought for by real Prohibition lata, nud
that, on lhe other hand, the passage of
thn measure would really be ilelrlnieu-
tul to the best interests cf the province
from uny standpoint.
The parties who are promoting the
light against the pas-sage of tin*  Acl
are following out u line of campaign
whioh hi unique on   this   continent.
An LI "Prohibition campaigns aro generally waged on the broad question of
,the advantage or the disadvantage of
Prohibition,   in Brltiah Columbia the
Antl-Prollibltlon  organization   throws
entirely to one side all tbo fnetn and
figures usually used   In   Prohibition
'Campaigns, and simply asks the elec-
'tors of tho province to "Head tbo Aol."
Lot tho reader glance ovor a few of
the principles enunciated in the Prohibition Act and see why the passage of
tbe  measure   would   not  be   for   the
advantage of the Province.
Although It is called n Prohibition Act, it provides for the expenditure of just aa much money
for liquor, by tlio citizens of Hritish Columbia as is now the case,
and also permits this Hquor to be
consumed    within   the   province.
Clause 57 Is u "Wide Open" section, ns it permits any citizen to
import liquor from any point outside the province, tlio orders being placed for any amount and as
frequently as the person may desire, all this being done  without
any control by   the   authorities.
Under this clause   a   man   may
place a standing order for a flask
of whisky per day, or a barrel of
beer per week, aud have delivery
of sueh shipments made regularly
to him, just as long as he pays the
THE   ritoviNn:.
Clause f>7 provides, as qui ted
above, for "wide open" Importation of liquor, Tho Prohibition
legislation of Washington and
Oregon provides for the Importation of limited amounts of liquor,
only one such permit for each
month to be granted to any one
individual. Kven with this limited importation enormous amounts
of money are now being dally sent
for liquor from these states to California. If this Is the case where
limited importation only is allowed, what would be the case In
British Columbia, where the right
to import Is absolutely unlimited,
unrestricted and uncontrolled?
Tbe Importation clause makes It
easy for the man with money to get
liquor, and the Act means absolutely
nothing to him. 'lhe workingman or
man of moderate means, accustomed
to buy his boor hy the glaBB, Is the mau
who has not the means to import liquor In quantity, und the Act would
indirectly deprive him of something he
desires to enjoy. The Act is class legislation also, in that It provides that
n man who Is a boarder or a lodger
cannot have liquor In his possession,
and further, that liquor may not be
kept in a house where thero are
boarders, where moro than throe lodgers are kept, or whore rooms occupied are in the same building as a Btoru
or business premises.
It provides that a constable may, nt
any hour of the day or night, forcibly
liter tbo private home of uny citizen
on tho more suspicion that he hus liquor in his possession. Having entered, the constable may break Into any
room of tho house, pry open any chest,
etc.. In his search for liquor. Another
oluuse ot the Act permits "sneak" informers to stale to a constable their
suspicion that a man has liquor lu his
possession. The constable lays nn information in bis own name, and lie-
name of the Informer will never bo
disclosed. Again, should liquor be
found In a man's possession bo Ib
deemed guilty of violating the Act until he lias proved that ho came Into
the possession of the liquor legally.
All these phases of the Aoct are distinctly opposed to British traditions
and customs.
Tho licensed liquor Industry in British Columblu directly employs nearly four thousand men, upon whom
there are depending for support ovor
six thousand persons. All theso wPI
be thrown out of work should the Act
At present every city, municipality
and, In the uu-organi/od districts, provincial authorities, derive a revenue
from thc licensing of the liquor trade.
If the Prohibition Aet passes, this
source of revenue will lie entirely ol-
Ilmlnated, which means an Increase In
the tax rate.
The above brief outline, covering a
few clauses of the Act, should cause
overy render to read this Act thoroughly beforo Sept. 14 In order that he mny
understand the real provisions which !
It contains.

which should be voted upon because

department in administering tho act
Is characteristically business-like, up-
a miner making application for
aid for Ills trail a competent mining
mglneer investigates the merit of his
property and tf Hie expenditure of the
money is justified in the public interest the matter is turned out by tho
staff of the Public Works Department.
Protection for Workers
In drafting and adopting the most
ulvaiiced Workmen's Compensation
Act In the world the government has
shown itself in sympathy with the progressive ideas and has given the mine-
workers a priceless boon, while placing the accident risk of companies on
W positive basis.
Liberals Would Increase Taxation
In a province whose rough topography has made the cost of opening channels of commerce so great tlie
urgency of Immediately increasing
productlng in all lines of industry
must be apparent In contrast, however, with the government's earnest
efforts hi this direction the electors
have witnessed the Llbral policy of obstruction crystallized in the highly
technical legal objection taken by
Leader Brewster to all this legislation
of the past session, which lie is seeking to Invalidate by his notorious lawsuit against the province.
The Liberals have hardly dared to
criticize the mining legislation or policy of the government, except in left
handed attacks, such as that made by
J. W. Weart, one of Hie leading men
in the party (said to be a cabinet certainty If Mr. Brewster forms the next
government) that the mining Industry
should be taxed ou a scale about five
limes greater than the present basts.
This contention he outlines in his
manifesto to the electors of South
Vancouver, where he is a candidate.
What a splendid Minister of Mines he
would he!

Dear Sir:—May I ask through the
medium of your columns what the respective candidates Intend to do for
the town in reference to the Red
Light district? As you know, I have
no particular political convictions;
but I am trying tu llnd out frum a
careful study of the words and acts of
both candidates and parties which Is
tbe better way to vote. My vote, and
1 am assured a large number of others
will bo determined by the opinions
and actions in matters of public morals of the partiea concerned. It would
bu a ghastly Insult to the citizens of
Cranbrook to pretend tliat, as a community they desire the existence of
that beastly and disease breeding menace enplu niously known as "the Hill".
I cannot imagine tlmt tiie mon and
women I meet day by duy, the storekeeper.'. I trade with, arc eatlBficd
with this organised Instrument of
vice, satisfied to have tholr children
brought up iu daily familiarity with
so ottraod au Institution, I hav*1 sntn-
elent c-jiiflihi.ee In my follow cltlsens
to be assured tliat, whatever financial
rolit they may derive from Cranbrook
being an "open town", they do not
wish the continuance of this blot upon
their citizenship and patriotism. This
is no tlmt* tn lie Spending the potential
manhood aud womanhood uf OUT country In fruitless lust; the hour demands
better things of ns. Will our political
representatives or would-be representatives show their sincerity as clean
men and patriots by tackling this problem? Will the new patronago committee show us that thoy will allow no
man to hold public Office who condoms
or allows the present state of things
to continue?
I ask this in all sincerity because 1
believe that this great moment iu our
history calls to every mnn and woman
In our community to clean out these
old curses and straighten up.
In furtherance of this "clean town"
old burg: plan I am willing to risk wnatcver
