Only 27 days are left to get busy on
the Fair, The committee have no
doubt been working hard In arranging
the details bin it is high time the
enthusiasm of the citizens wus stirred
up mi this nil important mutter.
If wc nro to make the Fair a success
it behooves overyono to get into line
nnd help and if you cannot help, boost.
A successful Fall Fair gives the
much needed impetus which every
town or city occasionally requires. It
not only offers a splendid opportunity
to advertise our ninny resources but
it stimulates activity In all directions
Imt ii nm hi bo successful to bo really
effective and to bo successful it requires united co-operation.
So fall into lino and Boost.
IIOOST   THK    HA 1.1.    FAIR
Every rranbrook citizen should take
a personal interest in the Annual
Fall Fair and make it bis business io
boost il for all he is worth from now
until the opening day.
The members of tho Executive rom
mlttee are devoting their energies and
all tbeir spare time inwards making
llie Fair tliis year a record one in all
Departments and the cooperation of
every citizen is wanted. Fairs cannot
bo run without funds and funds are
urgently needed Now when any ot
tlto members of the Extotlve Committee call upon you to solicit your
financial assistance don't start in tc
abuse them with a flow of language
that would do credit to the vocttbu
Inry of a mule driver or threaten to
eject them from your premises. Tf
you are a public spirited man and
havo the interests of the community
at heart yon will receive tliem with
open arms and open pocket books
and band out the long green without
a kick.
At first glance IL would be difficult
to find fault with tho actual wording
of the Resolution of the Western Liberals al the Winnipeg Conference; it
was astutely frame;! with the object of
salving Uie consciences of the Conscription 1st Liberals, bul its real
moaning can hardly fall to receive a
irm* appraisement,
it was declared that "The Imperative
duty of the Canadian people Includes
tlio maintenance in unimpaired
strength ai the fronl of our figlitinn
forces nnd the taking of all step:- necessary to secure the required re-ln-
forcements for tlmt purpose" and almost in the snme breath they declare
for the leadership of Sir Wilfred Laurier who is called "the greatest of all
Canadians" tho man who says "I am
not In favor of conscription nnd 1 will
not agree to conscrlptic.it."
The resolution therefore musi be
described us hypocritically false, do-
sinned to throw dust in the eyes of the
many Liberals who set the National
Issue before llie Party Issue, its falsity was ; pain clearly t bown by the
defeat of tho Turriff amendment to
add the words "by compulsion. If necessary."
The hidden but genuine meaning
of the resolution cannot be misconstrued, It is that all steps necessary
be taken, barring conscription - a wolf
in shoepfl clothing.

A correspondent "W. J," in the
Fernie Free Press strikes the harmonious keynote and suggests that
the people of tliis district should meet
und select a "Win the War Candidate."
He suggests that this should be done
by a public convention free from
party machine politics.
In our opinion this method is one
that will procure candidates who will
receive the support or a vast majority
of liberals, conservatives nnd socialists, men who are men nnd who do
not worship pnrty politics. At this
critical lime all who are really patriotic set the wo]faro of the Empire

The definition of our croni objoctlvu
Is the immediate problem our states*
men will have io inr,* : od one pre
liminary consideration to vital: lie-
fore the Allies enter upon any discus-
son of peace nil onomj troops must In
withdrawn behind the Rhine, as well
as from Russia, Poland, Serbia, Mon
tenegro. and Roumania whlto oa n
further guarantee to good fnlth (iermany and tho Dual Monnrchy must
surrender their rloets to Mn* Allies
It is obvious that unless the bostili
navies be handed uver. tho withdrawn!
of the hostile armies mignt nt u given
moment be a positive military advantage to tho Central Powers by enabling them to escape catastrophe.
With this guarantee, however, providing our Allies approved, the British
people might bo satisfied with some
sucli terms as the following, which we
need not he deterred irom recapitulating by tlio ancient tag aboul dividing
the boara skin before \ c huv,. killed

and forearmed ; gainst m.r own drifting diplomacy.

2. Full reparation by Germany,

of the war. Including rfcigium nnd
the British  Empire,
::. All territories occupied by (iermany to lie returned to tlieir rightful
owners. Including Alsaec-Loratno tu
■i. No territory liberated rrom Oi r-
maii rule during tho war in any pari
of tin* world, on any consideration
to bo given to her.
5. Rigorous justice to to meted on:
to all German criminals and arch
criminals for offences committed during ihe war.
ii." Stracetic precautions against
future Get man ascrosslon, including
the internationalization of tlto Kiel
7. Distribution of the German Cleet
among the Allies, the smaller sea
powers receiving the larger share.
8. Surrender of German Mercantile
Marine, as part compensation for
•'ruthless C-hoat fare.''
!i. Tho Germnn Kmpire to be do-
I'russianized. and no Prussian to be
a German Emperor.
10. The Allies to hold themselves
to propose any other terms calculated
to achieve (heir object, i. e., the down-
full of the Prussian .Militarism.
11. No secret clauses or unofficial
understandings whatsoever, either as
to the future commercial treatment
or dynastic marriages.
12 As no "scrap of paper" bearing
Germany's signature bears any meaning, tlio Allies must reserve to themselves full power to deal with any
contingency tbat may arise or vary
nny of the foregoing terms or nny
others thut may be devised.
Such conditions, with adequate
guarantees, would rid Europe o,- the
Prussian nightmare for the rest or
the century, which is tis far as one
can foresee Tliis is not asking much
considering thc tonus Prussia has
invariably imposed whenever victorious, while they are absurdly easy as
compared with the tr<ntmenl that
would have been meted nut to Grent
Britain and ber Allies tn the event
of a German victory and a German
peace. Anything substantially short
of wlint Is here proposed would inevitably involve the reopening of the
contest between (Culture nnd Civili/a- '
