and unworthy of a thought in a country involved in so great
a war. ltm one cannot toll v.-hereunto It may grow. "Tin*
beginning of strife is as when one lotteth oul water."
Surely in this world crisis wo should bp candid with eacli
ior but at the same time lot us be courteous. The Manifesto
the Non-UnlonlBt Liberals thus states their positions:
"It i-. ihe Imperative duty of the Canadian people to con-
nd   vigorously  prosecute  the   wnr   until   it   bo

3. If Conscription is to bo repealed and having in view j

I. Canadian valor and military skill have made a deep

memories of thoso wli'i have given up their lives already?
fi, Are we to stand aside or stand hack while we have

II. Is il intended to let the United States* soldiers

But such a simple proposition as tliat is nut enough for
tlie German mind. The turning movement rather than tho

and back of the fighting front, nil over the world, they have
been hard nt work ever sinee the war began, Hying to exercise a disuniting Influence in the countries which arc, oi may

enemies is their greatest friend. A division of opinion in
Canada that prevents concentration of effort is as good tor
the Kaiser as an army corps or a loan, aud he knows It. ll
he had any influence here it would go heavily lu favor of a
contested election. If. as is likely, he is informed V)f our
affairs, lie must lie rubbing his hands to think how we are
playing into those hands; trying to bring about disunity of
government at a time when unity Is thc only hope.
Successful conduct of the wur on our part, and continual
commercial prosperity, depend upon unity of action now.
A well balanced Government in the future, when the war is
over, may be overthrown tor some time, if the Liberal parly
discredits itself now lu a hopeless contest whicli seeks only
to serve party purposes.
The women of Canada to-day hnve a Krent opportunity;

At no more auspicious moment could the women nf Canada receive their enfranchisement; since their first vote can

It was never possible to make all men see alike und
think alike, if w,> ure to achieve unanimity of purpose, it
is necessary tor us to lay our personal ambitions and party
prejudices upon tiie altar of our country's cause.
To vote for Union Government pledged to carry on the
wnr witli the greatest expediency is our opportunity.
No argument has been urged against Union Government
thut is r.Ot the result of prejudice, unworthy suspicion, self-
interest, political Idas, and race differences.
The men who have come into tlie Union were the bone
and sinew of tlie old Liberal Party, men who are Leaders ol
Provincial Liberal Governments at the present time men
whose Integrity has never been impeached and who are
among the acknowledged lenders of thought in our country.
Where are the Liberal newspapers?-Behind Union Qovernment; M is au insult to tlie press of Canada to insinuate
that sucli Liberal organs ns the "Toronto Globe" have sold
iheir reputations for lucre.
What would a Laurier Government do towards winning
the war if elected? What could it do! Kieeted by the
Quebec majority it could noi run counter to the wishes of
that majority, who are opposed te Canada's further partlclpa-
templnie aud yet the issue is still in the balance.
It is evident that the enemy is now preparing for a
terrific blow on the British, French and Italian Fronts, taking
j full advantage of the Russian armistice releasing 115 divi-
! sious or a million additional men to throw into the strife,
it is Obviously the last effort to destroy the power of the
Allied forces before tlie United States can bring their forces
into action.
The most critical period of the war will be during the
next few months. It is a matter of life and death to democracy, to France, to Englund, and none the less th Canada;
at no time has the necessity for unity of effort been so
urgent   the slightest sign of wavering may be easily fatal.
Sir Itobert Borden is pledged to united effort to provide
tlie necessary re-inforcements for Canada's army instantly
and at the snme time to exempt the farmer and munition
worker to provide the necessary supplies of food and ammunition. Sir Wilfred Laurier Is pledged to suspend tlie Military Service Aet and all that It entails.
Which policy are ynu going to vote for?
Eliminate sMc issues, eliminate all old party affiliations,
eliminate individual personalities and search your soul for
an answer.
Realize that on you and upon your vote rests the lives of

British Columbia Liberals who sincerely love their
country and earnestly long for the triumph of right in the

hesitate about uniting with political opponents, even In times
of crises, should consider carefully the end of the road upon
which they are traveling.
If they persist in tlieir opposition to Union government
they nre associating themselves with a party dominated by
a section whicb not only Is fighting the principle or con-
scrlptton but is opposed to reinforcing the forces at the
front to the length of urging the withdrawal fiOm overseas of
the Canadian army.
Are British Columbia Liberals prepared to go tliat far?
Are they sure that they are not moving along a perilous road?

of the Cabim.t and the steps already taken to stop profiteering, is n fitting answer to such nonsense* •**
Sir Wilfred Laurier deliberately misuses General Mew-
burn's statement that tbere are 1IG.0OO Canadian soldiers in
England, and that we have therefore ample re-lnforcements.
Tlie official returns show that there ure less than 20.000
trained men available for tiie front. Sir Wilfred Laurier
would send hack to the firing line, tbe wounded, the maimed,
the nerve tortured men, wiio have already done their duty
nobly, and hold hack the thousands of able-bodied men In
Another bogey tlie Union Government lias taken core
to quash is the possibility of the C. N. R. getting sixty million
dollars for its toinmon stock. Eight million dollars Is tlie
limit- and eight million dollars is twenty two million dollars
below what Sir Wilfred Laurier had in mind as compensation to the holders of C. N. It. stock.
Premier Borden Is fully seized of the fifty-fifty spirit.
He promises to add enough Liberals to moke it a real half
und half cabinet and to give Labor a real Labor man to
represent it. The Hon. Gideon Robertson represents Labor
now without portfolio and when Labor is given another
minister—presumably u genuine horny-handed s.On of toil-
it will liave no reason to complain that it lias beeu overlooked.
If Sir Wilfred Laurier should win and should form a
drop-om-of-the-wor government how would that help unity
In Canada? An equally strong win-the-war party would
form in tlie House of Commons and the last state of our
Canadian Parliament would be worse than the first. Moreover Sir Wilfred is a very old man and If fate should remove
his venerable figure from the scene what would tlie state
of Quebec be then, with Henri Bourassn ready to cash in?
It would be idle to say that every man who opposes the
Union Government Is disloyal. It is just as wide of the mark
to urge that self-interest has promoted Liberals to become
members of (lie Government. But surely » sane appeal can
be nmde to Canadians of nil political persuasions to forget
party considerations for the moment and to remember the
words of a great statesmnn thnt "If Germany wins, nothing
else matters,"   What will it profit to lick tlie Tories or to

Mr. Heattie's reputation is not enhanced by stooping to anathematize

Tlie following letter was written by

Sliatford of St. .lames Cburdl,  Montreal, to Senator Foster:
On Active Service.
Chaplain Service. Canadian corps,
October 8th, 1917.
My Dear Senator Foster:--! liave
been wanting for some time to write
you in the hope of discovering tho
exact conditions of things politically
in Canada. Wo are much concerned
over here because we are quite satisfied tliat the issue is more tremendous
than the people at home think. If
conseript>in is not carried it wlll be
the gravest disaster that could hapten in the lives of our fighting men
Everything really hangs upon that
question. Our men have done magnificently—it is everywhere conceded
tliat tlie Canadian Corps is the finest
in tlie whole army. In every engagement they have been splendidly successful—there are deeds of courage
and heroism that thrill one to the
core, in fact 1 am firmly persuaded j
that human bravery is higher than
ever it was in all the leng history of'
the past.
There is, however, a war-weariness j
setting in. and can you wonder at it?'
Humanity after all can only endure j
so much—the constant marvel to me
is that it has held out so long—und
if we put too much strain upon it
something will snap. There was never an hour when we required more
cheering and encouragement] Our1
lads must, be assured that the coun- '
try Is behind tliem—if by the decision i
of the Cr.nadlan electorate that, fact,
is revealed, tlie future is assured, lfi
on the otlier hand there is any uncertainty about tlie approaching election [
It will paralyze our effort and take j
tbo heart out of our brave boys. What
is the hope, therefore? l am watching tiie despatches anxiously, for 1
stand in ttie position of opportunity
and responsibility. It is my privilege
to speak t»> thousands of these men
every week and I can therefore do
much to strengthen the morale of
the Corps. Put I do nnt want to buoy
them up with false hopes. To be
..quite frank. 1 am desperately afraid
of the situation in Canada.
I tell you folemnly, my dear friend,
thnt the Canadian peoplo must in
some way be made to see that this
time Is critical beyond exaggeration,

Hns anyone beard from a single
Laurier candidate how he proposes—
if his party is returned to power-
to maintain Canada's strength in the
field-that is an issue which is never
mentioned by the Lanrier-Liberals.
The "Le Droit." Quebec, declares
Hint it would be no dishonor for Canada to quit this wur as thc British had
more than once turned their backs on
tho Pie at Mons, at Chcrleroi p.nd at
Ypres, pnd Hint Canada "hud dene us

was not obliged to do and did not de-

for opinions expressed by
(By A. E, Watts)
In my article which appeared in
several newspapers entitled "Why
Democracy should Support Union
Government" t wound up my appeal
to human intelligence with advice lo
electors, iu effect as follows;
Ask some of the candidates a question, e.g., Will you make a solemn
vuith that when your party was In
power that you were not a profiteer
through political pull at the expense
of the people whom you now aspire tu
represent? If he Is not guilty ho will
answer like o man; If guilty he may
say. "I refuse to answer," as one replied when I put tlie straight unvarnished question to him.
At a public meeting recently addressed by Mr, M. A. Macdonald.
late Attorney-General, and 11, K. Beat-
tie, "Quebec shull rule" candidate for
Federal honors, the latter voluntarily
put on the cap I had innocently made
for nny candidate ft might fit: and is
reported as having said "We all know
whut Mr. WattB alluded to," and then
explained a land deal lie, Beattie. had
made with the government during the
Laurier regime.
I submitted a simple question it remains to be answered by the candidate whose conscience evidently
prompted him to put on the cup alluded to, I therefore rflpeat it In
another form applicable to any candidate whose conscience will not per-1
mlt him to swear.
Will you sign a statutory declaration according to the Canadian Evidence Act, to thc effect set forth in
the second paragraph above? If some
of them will sign 1 promise that I
will attend to tlieir "obsequies political."
I was not invited to the Macdonald
and Beattie meeting although 1 had
offered to meet Mr. Beattie on a public platform at any time. I had the
right to expect the return of courtesies 1 extended to him when 1 was'
the principal in arranging a public
meeting to support and endorse Sir
Itobert L. Borden when introducing
tlie Military Service Act, under my
direction the prominent citizens iu-
eluding clergymen and Mr. Beattie
received written Invitations regardless of politics.
The large audience in the Auditorium at that period will remember
that Mr. Heattie's reply to the invita-
tlon was read, in the reply he stated
definitely that he was a supporter of
conscription, intelligent electors will
ask how does he reconcile that wltli
his present policy of supporting Sir
Wilfred Laurier and his followers who
preach sedition und even secession,
and threaten to rebel and to light
tlieir friends at home rather than
gird on the sword and join, like men.
in fighting tha common enemy of
mankind. Will he promise to vote
against Sir Wilfred in Caucus and in
tlie House'.' To run with the hare and
hunt with the hounds does not win
the confidence of the people.
The amusing piOmises of what Mr,
Ilea ttie will do If returned wnuld
make a screaming farce for machine
politicians; can one imagine n possible picture of two Honorable gentlemen, Frank Oliver and It. E. Be? tlto,
going hand-in-hand to beg Sir Wilfred to abolish political patron ige.
which is the first practical Btep to
stop the vile profiteering which Mr,
Beattie promises to stop, and ho Wlll
also set the selling price of food stuffs.
whnt empty bombast so beautifully
vague; will Mr. Beattie explain how
lie would lower food prices, for example, if it costs the dairyman lfi
cents per quart to pioduce milk, will
he make the milkman sell it for 10
cents? will he furnish Hankers to
make up tbo deficit, like lumbermen
had to do through lack of protection?
, are   Mr.   Heat tie   anil   empty   headed
politicians  more   powerful   than   the
inexorable law of supply and demand?
■ Whal   pu.iile   plfflolll     When   half
the producers of the world are fighting and wasting bllllbns per day instead of producing, how can tlie remaining halt produce enough for all?
Iioes noi Mr. Beattie know that when (
i scarcity and famine exist the purchasing power of gold Is reduced in proportion.'
Mr. Beattie and otlier candidates of
Mite nature know well that no political party within itself could abolish
political potronago.   The Union Qovernment has done it, and It thereby
I has paved the way to stop the profiteering so much tnlkoi*. about but little
underal ood.
Many   candidates   are   young   nnd
i physically strong, and should be pio-
l ducers or fighters Instead of gaseous

Tu tbe Kditor:
When I handed jpou my note ot lust
week concerning tbe fulttebood that
hits! been circulated concerning tujr
attitude politically at this time I was
not aware of any wrltteu statement
beiug In eil-eteni*** on the questfcn.
nor bid I any ground (or accusing
Mr. Watts ot the authorship ot the
story. When I wrote "Whoever be ne * y
hc" I wejs perfectly Ignorant of \>;e:
could have concxted the story.
ity castlgatlon still stands aud It
Mr. Watts wants to claim authorship
or any complicity In It, then I um
sorry, hut I cannot make an exception
even for Mr. Watts.
But,; Mr. Editor, Mr. Watts should
be the last man in this district to accuse mi of party leanings at this time,
for before any actfan of any kind was
taken towards a win the war movement, Mr. Watts and I discussed the
desirability of doing something to obviate the political strife that was all
too evident, and he can record how
that, on that occasion, 1 Bald do him
whole-heartedly, "Yes, I am one wtth
yeu ni that."   But tba tronMe anise

Co., Toronto, will supply
when 1 refused to adopt the methods
proposed by Mr. Watts an rather rtc-
iVatlnn thi> object heing sought, than
He will ulso recall bbw I said to
liini, "Mr. WatUi what in needed at
this time is not nn exposure of the
Iniquity of party and caucus government or of the ramifications of machine politic.., but a movement that
will commend Itself to the best heads
of all parties and thus nullity pollth-ul
feeling rather than Intensify it."
Mr. Watts will recall going away
fi'mi my house In n rape bemuse of
this action of mine.
Why Mr. Watts should lay the blame
upon me for the demise of a movement or league of whieh he soys the
Hev. W. H. Bridge was president anil
possibly Mr. Watts was secretary, I
do not know, for any sueh league was
unknown to me.
I was associated with Mr. Bridge in
a win the war movement, but It wa*.
the one of which Mrs. Burton wrote
hist week and was the outcome of a
resolution offered hy myself In the
Non-Partlzan League, and whioh movement failed and further attempts a-
bandoned a full week before Mr.
Bridge left this city.
There Is one point that Mr. Watts
lias oversmoked, however, and which
has a distinct bearing upon the topic
as to why the Non Partisan League as
a league is not ln the political world,
and so I would respectfully point out
to him that when he was In convention
fighting for a union ».if the forces of
this district, and favouring offers to
the Liberal convention to join In a
union convention, he then forgot that
there was a Xon Partisan League and
never made a move to have them invited, where the ladies tof whom he
is so eulogistic now could have hod a
hand In matters.
The question of where my sympathies are, Mr. Editor, has never been
questioned by those who know me best
and I may say that It would havp never been questioned hy others if they
bad not had definite statements made
to them that were unfounded and untrue.
In conclusion, Sir, I want to say
that this letter ls not to be understood as a desire to enter Into paper
discussion with Mr. Watts, as 1 have
not the time or patience to read "The
Columns" of stuff that he says he
could contribute, and I am satisfied
that your readers know enough of that
already. Therefore I leave the mat*
ter to the judgment of the people.

"Kamerad" under the Referendum proposal. Come out and fight
for Union Government.
Make No Mistake
(1) Canada will send no more
reinforcements to the front, which
practically means quitting the war and
placing the country in the same class
at Russia.
(2) The French-Canadians who have
shirked their duty hi thin wur will
be the dominating force in the Government of the country.
Tt is because the French-Canadians have not done their duty that Conscription
had to be resorted to.
The French-Canadians have made it perfectly clear that they do not like the war
and are against Canada participating in it further. Some of them even go to
the length of saying that the soldiers should be brought back from the front.
The Nationalists are demanding that the men who have been enrolled under the
Military Service Act be disbanded and sent back to their homes. To secure the
Nationalist support Laurier-Liberal candidates in Quebec have signed the following
pledge: —
"I, the undersigned, candidate in the Federal Election!, undertake by these present!,
if 1 am elected, to demand the immediate suspension of the Military Service Act, 1917,
and of all its effects until Canadian electors have pronounced by way of plebiscite; and
should the majority of the electors condemn it, that it oe considered as null from tti
origin and that in consequence all conscripts be disbanded."
"I also undertake to vote against any Government which should refuse to adopt the
above enunciated policy."
