whicli Bcoma to Ik- confidently expected in ull quarters, 1 see Borne of the
BrltlBh pessimist papers affect to believe the (ierman lines cannot lie broken using us an argument the failure
of the Gorman massed attack at Verdun, It Is not much use to argue
about it or even to speculate, especially as 1 do not pretend to lie a military
expert on a grand scale; but I full to
see any comparison between the German attack ut Verdun and tbe one the
Allies will make. One argument Is
sufficient, and that is the Allies wlll
almost certainly attack simultaneously
on all fronts, and if they do 1 am
confident it will mark the beginning
of the end. It Is no use, and not wise,
to overlook the cost; it will moat certainly bo an awful one, but the tiling
hus gone too far to got frightened at
I thought Crunbrook had done very
well, Judging merely hy the figures;
but am sorry to bear there are a good
many young fellows who might come
und who do not answer the cull. I
fancy thoy will bo sorry in the days to
eome. It is of no use to blink facts
war is a ghastly, horrible husiness, und
nowadays when it is shorn of all the
glitter nud pomp, and one sees it In ull
lis naked ludeotyiness. The picture is
only relieved by the qualities shown,
of on durance, unselfishness, und devotion shown by the Allies soldiers
(I um not saying llie Germans have
none of these qualities, but I may be
excused for thinking tliey have not
tlie same proportion). Yet iu spite
of it all there is ample compensation
lu knowing we are fn a good cause.
The whole business is too ghastly for
anyone to get any otlier satisfaction
out of it. Right, and necessity, put us
ln the field, and I hope that the old
Hritish spirit wlll do tlio rest.
Tiiere lias been some hot work going
on around here lately, but so far no
signs of a "Verdun" on our part of tlie
line, thougli It seems to bc expected.
I hope you will have good luck wltli
tho Battalion you are raising ln Cranbrook. Aa far as you are concerned
I am quite sure you are here in spirit
and I am sorry that deafness keeps
you back, but frankly, I wish there
were no married men obliged to come,
it eetms too big a sacrifice for his
family to make. We are grown out a
good many false ideas these laat oigh-
teen months; and are beginning to
seo clearly that so long as a man does
his duty to his country, it matters not
wliere he is forced to do It.

We were called up immediately, We
made a forced march ami ditched our j
packs on the way. We sure thought
we were going into it, but we were
not up fu time, so we got orders to
dig ourselves In just where we were,
which was about 100Q yards behind tin-

High Wind Wakes Tusk ef Fighting
Fire Difficult—Four Curs
Also Burnt
The East Kootenay lumber mill at
Jaffray was destroyed by fire Sunday
evening involving a loss ot between
$25000 and $.10000 ou building, contents
and stock. The C, P. R. suffered a
loss of $1,000 on rolling stock and $100
on track damaged.
Some days previously the Company
Imd a platform burnt and thc flre from
this had either been smouldering in the
sawdust surrounding the mill and been
fanned into a blaze by the high wind
or a gust ot wind imd carried flre from
tlie sawdust incinerator to the mill.
\ high wind was raging at the time
and tlio flames soon enveloped the
entire mill and made thc task of fight*
ing the blaze very difficult. A request
was sent to Michel for assistance and
a special left Michel during the night
with a fire engine. Rain commenced
at ten o'clock nud assisted materially
in checking the flames.
Four box cars and a stool dump car
which were loading acted us a screen
between tbo flames and the ottlee iuhI
stable buildings, and helped to save
these, the planer building also being
saved. The cars nml the contents were
destroyed however.
Corp. White, IU.M., Hern ot Ypren
ami St. Julien, Gives Vivid Story
In Connection with Military
For a realistic record of military
life ami achievements, Uie official Canadian Government Films shown at tlte
Rex Theatre Friday and Saturday In
six reels were tthe best war pictures
shown in Crunbrook aud pleased tlie
audiences each night. Corp. White,
D.C.M., one of the heroes of Ypres anil
St. Julien, who was given tin* distinguished Conduct Medal for gallantry
under flre Wllllo rescuing several of
Ills wounded comrades, lectured while
the pictures wcre lielng shown, ami
gave un enlightening story of actual
conditions at the front.
"Men who go overseas are entitled
to know what tliey are up against",
said Corp. White. "When 1 enlisted 1
had not the faintest Idea what we were
going into. None of tlie boys had we
just knew tliat wu were going to fight
for our King and the grand old flag
we love so well. We took the rest on
faith. But since 1 have come back to
Canada I find tlmt a good muny of th.
recruiting officers think that it is their
duty to make soldiering look easy. 1
do not think tliat is the right idea—
tlie best men are those who are willing
to face the hardest situations. And
Maj.-Gen. Sir Sam Hughes believes
that the public should know the truth
—tliat Is why the official Canadian
films were made, and I tun going tu
tell tbem the whole truth and nothing
but the truth about tlie life at tlie firing line.
"To most people it will bc an astounding revelation and the six reels
of film show In the most fascinating
manner everything that happens to the
average soldier boy after lie leaves
Canada, through his course of training at Shorncliffe or Salisbury Plains,
and then the actual work ln tlie trenches—those mystic trenches that liave
been his day and night dreams for
many a long week
''Tlie daily pleasures as well as dan-
gres are shown, the way the men really
live, the way tbey calmly face shot and
shell, how a charge ls made through
barbed wire entanglements, tiie Red
CroBs work and the Canadian hospitals, and the magnificent pageant presented when H. M. the King reviewed
50,000 Conadlans In the biggest spectacle ever put on n film. We huve
played 'Canada's Fighting Forces'
through eastern Canada, arousing the
greatest enthusiasm."
In Ottawa, tlieir royal highnesses,
tho Duke nnd Duchess of Connaught
and tiie Princess Patricia, attended tlie
performance, highly commending both
films and tlie returned hero who lectured.

"Charley's Aunt", tiie play that ha-,
been written and talked about more
than any other comedy production
ever launched in the amusement field,
will bo presented at the Auditorium.
Saturday, August Bth.
The piece is full of extraordinary
surprises and clean fun, tliat keeps Its
audience In a constantly expectant attitude nnd almost continuous laughter.
It Is, In fact, a farce quite, out of the
ordinary, and furnishes more thrills
ami tense moments than one can realize as emanating from a single evening's entertainment.
It Is a clean play, presented by an
admirable company of comedians'and
comediennes, and played with a rapidity that threatens to break the si>ced
limit, and It Is filled to the brim with
logical tricks and swiftly moving surprises thnt keep the interest of the
auditor at concert pitch throughout its
enactment n short. Il is n charming farce charmingly presented, and
as fail of laughts as the small boy is
of ice cream after coming home from
a church festival.
The United Producing Company,
who nre presenting it claim it will
give bettor satisfaction than "Within
the Law" or any other of their many
attractions, and the cats is the strong-
attractions, and the caste is the strong-
st yet offered under tlieir banner.
Fernie Methodists and Presbyterians
are to be congratulated upon having
solved tlie problem of church union to
their mutual satisfaction as It effects
them locally, and the two congregations will soon unite under one pastorate, the new organisation to be
called tlie United Church of Canada.
Tlie result of a ballot by each congregation has been almost a unanimous ratification. The Presbyterian
congregation voted ninety-one for and
no dissenting votes. The Methodist
congregation Ims voted eighty for to
five against. There will be a few
votes still to be cast but the result
will not be changed except to make
tlie vote still more solid for the prop-
The basis arrived at la In a tentative condition, pending the ratification
of tlio two governing committees of
tlie two churches but it is hardly conceivable that this plan will not be
sanctioned by the authorities which
liave been instrumental In bringing
the great project of church union so
lose to consummation as to make the
move by the Fernie churches possible.
Rev. D. M. Perley Is to be minister
of the United Church till June 1917.
The first car of scrap Iron ever shipped from Vernon went out to Trail
smelter last week.
For five months ending June 17 the
Ross-Saskatoon Lumber Co. at Waldo

The School Board is about to lose
the services of Mr. A. IL Webb, Manual
Training Instructor since that brunch
of Education was inaugurated in Cranbrook. Under Mr. Webb's instruction
tho boys of the school in Ills charge
havo nmde phenomenal progress In a
phase of learning which will benefit
tliem In whatever pursuit their liidlv
(dual talents fit tliem for In later life
Tlie teaching of Manual Training Is
not alone tlie teaching of thc use of
such tools and apparatus as arc employed in the different subjects, but
is also a training of the hand, eye.
Imagination and ull the faculties which
tend to make the pupil observant ami
thoughtful of what lie comes in contact with. Mr. Webb lias ben singularly successful In liis chosen vocation as tbe display of workmanship
by tils classes amply testifies.
Mr. Webb's activities havo not been
confined to tbe teaching of Manual
Training alone, but he has been actively Interested In the movement for
school gardening which has been instituted In our schools, and which is
proving such a benefit to boys uml
girls alike, and is adding materially
to the beauty of the School grounds.
The Agricultural Association, the
Farmers' Institute, the Poultry and Pot
Stock Association,the Pruning School
will all feel the loss of Mr. Webb most
acutely. His enormous energy and
perseverance have made hlm th? mainstay of these different institutions
which liave been so beneficbl to the
farmers and every clasB of our community.
Mr. Webb has accepted a position as
Manual Training Instructor for the
Nelson School Board which is reviving that branch of Technical Kduca-
tlon. He is severing liis connection
with the Cranbrook School Board
chiefly for the reason that Mrs. Webb's
health Is so much better at Nelson
than here that he feels the benefit to
her offsets the less he feels at going.
It is our pleasure, even in our regret, to wish them success and to congratulate Nelson School Board and
\'elson district generally, on their gain.
In Favour of Prohibition
and Compensation
Rev. W. H. Bridge spoke recently
.. Christ Church upon the subject of
Prohibition, taking (or his text: "lt ls
not good to ent meat or drink wine nor
to do anything whereby the brother
stumbleth." It was this principle, he
said, rather than any political or economic consideration which led him
to approach tlie subject from the pulpit. Tlio general principle, as stated
by St. Paul, might be taken as a
safe guide to the Christian conscience I
when dealing wltll any matter which
In Itself was neither right nor wrong.
Ho had hitherto refrained from
nuking any statement In public on
tills question because he wished to
gather all tlie Information he could
to weigh both sides of the question
fairly. He believed that liquor men
as a whole were no worse than any
other class of the community, and
lie was anxious that what he had to
say on the side of Prohibition should
not be taken as un attack on liquor
dealers, hotel keeper", or any honest
and law-abiding cltlsens connected
wltll or engaged In the liquor business.
The Prohibition movement in worldwide. Not only Is It active in the
Dominion of Canada and the United
States, but It Is alive and making enormous headway— notably under the
stlmuloiis of the war—In Europe. It
preceded all other efforts In Russia
to rc-organlzc that country, and no
one now attempts to deny that Russia's wonderful successes would have
been entirely imiwssible under the old
Vodka regime. The great eflorts of
China to abolish the opium curse is
an Oriental parallel to the effort in
the Western civilizations.
"Tile nations are finding that servitude to Intoxicants and narcotics Is Incompatible with modern demands; the
alcoliollc-lovllig people must as inevitably fall nut of the race as the un-
adaptive primitive tribes. With the
outbreak of the war the evils of drunkenness have been forced upon the attention of thte various nations engaged In tho conflict, with thc result
that strong and drastic measures have
lieen adopted to lessen or control the
sale or use of Intoxicating beverages.
The legislature of llrltlsh Columbia
tins been forced to follow where other
legislatures have led the way, and the
Prohibition Act has been passed. Before the act becomes law It must how-
'Ver lie submitted to the people, and
nt tlie forthcoming elections the voters
wlll he asked to express approval or
disapproval of Prohibition."
Continuing Itev. Bridge said: "I feel
very strongly that our duty *s ('hris
tian men at the present time Is to
support the allion of the (Internment,
and I hope that every member of the
Church of England In this diocese will
vote for a measure which will have
the effect of greatly lessening the
awful misery and suffering which
drink has caused. I would not dare
—and I cannot conceive bow uny otlier
man would dare—to go Into the ballot box and vote for tlie continuance
of an evil which tills our goals with
criminals, our Insane asylums with
victims, and our lund with teurs of
anguish for broken hearts and wasted
"Nevertheless we must not commit
an act of injustice towards those who
are directly or indirectly Interested In
the liquor business. We must rcmem-
| ber that at present and for long ecu
:tnrlcs tlie sale of alcoholic liquors liu;
ibccii a perfectly legal business, In It
Iself contrary neither to the ln*s of
Cod or mai Tie ubuse of wine am
'strong drill', is most strongly con
demiieil In the Bible, but tlie UM ol
'and beverages of like nature Is nowhere condemned; rather are tliey re
| cognized as a gift of (lod for tuan'l
, use and enjoyment. Prohibition iiai
J become necessary because the country
is not Christian. Men und women who
know nothing of the Christian virtue
of self-control must be saved from
themselves, and be prohibited the use
of that which experience lias taught
cannot be used without ubuse by the
bast bulk of mankind, lt tlie country
were truly christian. Prohibition
would not be needed, for the christian
would have learned true temperance,
true self-control.
"It does not seem to me to lie Just,
or right, or Christlun, to tuke uway
a man's means of living and give him
no compensation, and I cannot feel
tliat 1 would have lieen Justified In
speaking in favor of Prohibition, did
I not place myself on record as of tlie
opinion that Prohibition should lie ac- j
conipanicd by adequate compensation
for those who are deserving of It."
In conclusion lie said tliat attempts
were being made to confuse the issue,'
and tils iiearers should be prepured
for them.   The bill, like every other
piece of legislation hud Its faults, but
the procedure lie would commend for
their consideration  was to  pass tlie J
Bill In spite of its faults.   In so doing
they would stamp tlieir approval up-;
on the principle It Involvor; then, if1
necessary, tliey could pass a bill   a-
mending the  Prohibition  Act.    They
were asked to vote directly  ulajn   a
moral, not upon a polilh al or party
issue.   Tlieir duly as Christians and
patriots was as clear as day I

Prohibition went into effect In Alberta ou  July  1st and  the  working
of tlio Act In our sister province will
bo watched with particular Interest by
Hritish  Columbia ou  account of the
approaching voto In this province on
a measure similar In many respects.
After a little better than half a month
of   the   now   order the    Lethbridge
Herald of Monday last gives the following   story   of  how   it  Is   working
out in tliat city.
"Sober and glad of it."
That was the slogan among    the
muny men who on Saturday celebrated tlieir first dry payday by patronizing the Ice cream parlor Instead of
the liar.   And business in the various'
stores  showed the effect    of    the
Many men who from time Immemorial considered payduy amide justification for a big "bust", found themselves on Saturday wltli a wad of
money In their pockets nnd tin* usual
avenuo for getting rid of a good
Bltare of It closed up tight. The result wns that they patronized the
stores, and tho business done in the
down town section nn Saturdiiy afternoon ond evening showed It. Bvery
storo visited hy tho Herald Saturday
or this morning reported excellent
business so much better thun usual
that It could bo remarked, from hour
to hour. This was particularly notice*
able  In  tin* dry goods und   clothing
stores, the grocery stores not finding
tho Increase so great.
Some merchants also noted an Increase In the amount of money paid
in on monthly accounts.
As un example of the wny prohibition is working out, one man went
Into a clothing store. Ho hud with
him his wife und wholo family, He
outfitted ull tho children und was
mighty proud of them. Prior to July
first, it was considered the Inevitable
thlng that he would huve a carouse
nud Spend a good share of his wages
for drink.
Another mau pulled ont a roll of
bills that would choko an ox. lie,
too, was wont to fight tho DOOM puy
day. Asked what he was going to do
with tho roll he said, "Guess I will
open a bank account, It's the only
thing left to do."
Another remarkable result of pay
day was found at police court. Thousands of dollars wore paid out hy the
various mining and railway concerns
on Saturday, but not a solitary arrest
was mnde over the week end, and not
a single inebriated man was reported
hy any of the police on their beats.
Tho result was a clean sheet at police
court this morning tanking the third

there was at least half a dozen drunk
nnd disorderly cast's.

the coast newspapers have so far recorded, particularly those of M. A.
Macdonald and Brewster, there does
not appear any well defined platform
outlining the Liberal policy for the
future development of the province;
tho speeches ure mude up practically
of fifty per cent Mucdonald explanations of the plugging enquiry; twenty
five per cent Brewster apologies for
his Infamous writ and twenty five percent personal vituperation of the Premier, Interspersed with promises, but
uo solid foundation of u well defined
policy tluit would nppeal to all who
have the future of the Province at
heart This, of course. Is quite on a
pur with lhe failure of the Liberals
to take advantage of Macdouald's
election, by persisting In puerile accusations and personalities in place of
broad statement of policy and an
earnest promise to assist any legislation devoted or Intended for the upbuilding of the country. How can they
expect thinking people to voto for
tliem or Indeed to entertain any proposal to transfer tho conduct of the
Government to such hands. It would
he preposterous to suppose that the
electorate, on top of tlie particularly
advantageous legislation just passed
by tlie Conservative Government,
would so far jeopardize the future as
to curtail the efforts of a far-sighted
body of men whose sole Interest Is In
our progress.
Have the general body of the electorate really taken the trouble to read up
the Acts as pussed by the late Con
servatlve Government and realize the
benefits of each Act? Does the gen
oral public recognize the importance
of the inauguration of the policy of aid
to farmers in tlie Agricultural Credits
Act, a policy that lias been so especially successful In the Antipodes; the
assistance to the farmers will be of In-
caloulablc value in time as in place of
a body of men working night and day
to keep body and soul together until
ufUclcnt land is prepared, we shall
have a stalwart body of Independent
omen owning their own homes, a
very nucleus of national sturdlneas*;
at present with only one million dollars for this purpose there will be
some disappointment but as money
gets easier the Government can obtain
more loans at less Interest and widen
their operations. This Act commends
Itself to all classes.
Has nny Government dono more or
proposed to do more than this one for
the enlisted men? Those who hold
crown land on enlistment on their return obtain a clear title free from
payments, fees and taxes up to the
date of the grant und those who havc
no lund have the privilege of obtaining
a free homestead, and a homestead
loan if required; also the Government
has made arrangements whereby enlisted men do not lose their votes. In
addition to this, those free miners
who have enlisted and hold mining
property are exempt from assessment
work and their licences are extended
without further payment until six
months after tho conclusion of the
Everyone knows, or should know,
the benefits accruing from the Workmen's Compensation Act; this has been
ixplalned at length and endorsed by
tlio Labour Unions as an up-to-date,
progressive piece of legislation and Is
certainly a feather in tho Government's cup.
The U. ('. Shipping Act, even with
Its short period of existence, has already made a difference in the shipbuilding industry; the Government
guarantee in nld or building new ships
and ship-bulldiug establishments has
been the mentis of fostering an industry that will have far reaching effect*
and eventually become a mercantile
marine thut will solidly assist the development of the province; we have
tho timber and the Iron; we have
ocean and ocean-ports; then why let
the mercantile murine of other nations
tako the profit and business out of
our hands?
Altogether thoro are nearly one
hundred Acts and amendment Acts
pussed hy tlm late parliament aud wltli
tho exception of the ono to aid tlie
Pacific Greut Bottom Hallway Company there has been no bona fide attempt by the opposition to call Into
question the benefits of tho legislation, and even this one Is entirely a
matter of opinion, with tho arguments
strongly In favor of tho Government.
Then whut better legislation can bc
proposed than prohibition and woman
suffrage? Doer any sane man dare
to oppose the;*.e on any ground out
personal? is the vote of a drunken
miner or lumberjack better than the
vote of a hard-working and respected
woman? The only argument that lias
been advanced against woman suffrage
Is the one asserting bad feelings being engendered iu the home when
husband und wife do not hold the
iume views. There can bo no argument against the Prohibition Act ns
expressed by this Government; It conserves the right to citizens to have
their beer or wine, etc., lu tlieir own
homes but eliminates the duiigerous
elements of public drinking.
Taking all this Into consideration
why should the electorate wish to
place the reins of Government In otlier
hands and untried hands at that?
What benefit could be obtained by the
breaking off of tlie progressive trend
ot our legislators, whut more cun be
xpected from anyone and particularly
from a small coterio of the stamp of
Mr. Brewster who calmly proposes to
hold up the whole husiness of the province and materially injure its credit
for his own edification?
It Is unthinkable, uud yet evidently
the Liberals have strong hopes of the
electorate forgetting the solid results
and benefits of a proved, strong Government, formed of businesslike and
cajiablc men, In favor of a Government composed of men who spend
half their timo in excusing sucli tactics as tlie Vancouver plugging Instead of placing on record their unqualified opposition and disgust.
Apparently specious promises and
nebulous theories are to act as collateral security; a gaudy fly to tempt
an ambitious trout.
glud to say, do not always tell tho
truth, and tho committee havo been
forced to have every case thoroughly
investigated by a committee. Untruthful statements only bring the
parties under suspicion, und as the
figures set by the fund ure maximum,
adjustments can easily be made.
This giving of assistance under the
fund's rules does not desire In any
way to discourage thrift, in some
cases I am afraid it has done so. This
ls, however, one of the Inevitable results of the giving of money which
is not earned by work.
Tlte rules of the fund now are that
any dependent earning money will
have deducted from tlte estimate under
Income, only hall' actual earning, and
that any casual earning will not he
considered at all by tlte fund. De-
pendeuts can therefore supplement
their Income by their own efforts.
I would again emphasize that tills
fund is purely one to help soldier's
families in need, t tines not follow
at all because thfl hend of the house-
has enlisted, his fumily shull recev,*
lion*} from the patriotic fund.
'ihis Is the Utopian idea: "All shall
hn a Ike, To blm thut hath not shal'
l;e f-lven according to Ills nee I.i so
tluil 11 may lu.e sufficient to live In

They know that they cannot afford
to withdraw troops from the west
front, but they know that they have

No one can deny the Germans credit for ingenuity, persistence and coinage, and the sending of a submersible
merchantman with cargo to the United
States can in Itself command nothlug
but our admiration. If the Germans
are going to evade our blockade by
this means then wc must find new
ways of meeting tho situation, and no
doubt they will bc found. The curious
part of the episode Is this, however;
that It reveals first of all Germany's
extreme need for certain materials,
and, secondly, the child-like love ot
the German for doing the melodramatic. This underseas merchant ser
vice cannot seriously relieve Germany's shortage of supplies, but It
looks well. It Is calculated to strengthen the waning hopes of the pro-
Germans ln the United States. It Is
like the last desperate somersault of a
trapeze artist who has missed his trapeze and must soon crash to the floor.
It was this exaggerated self-consciousness that first started Germany on her
career of folly, building an army that
was to overawe the world. Tho same
childish Instinct for display set her to
work trying to beat down the gates of
Verdun with naked fists. Now this

Th* following rule Is In force
throughout Canada regarding post-enlistment marriages.
The wife of a soldier married after
enlistment whether he has received
permission from his commanding officer or not, Is not eligible for patriotic fund assistance unless she Is nn
exiiectant mother when she may apply us those married before enlistment.
The object of tlie fund is to assist
a soldier's fumily, dependent on hlm
at time of enlistment, nnd not the
obligations thut he may assume after
his joining tho colors. The fund wlll
have all It enn do to tuke cure of
these responsibilities without assuming others. Some soldiers seem to
havo had mistaken notions regarding
this matter.
There has been criticism of the
general administration on account of
deductions having been made for the
earning capacity of dependent, and
for cheap house rent or no house
rent at all, lt being claimed that each
should have the benefit of their former thrift, If tn better circumstances
than others, and for earnings If they
work while others idle. This undoubtedly would be a good argument If
tho money paid by the fund to dependents was considered in any sense
a wage for the soldier's service. It
Is, however, In no sense a wage, and
on the other hand it ls In no sense
a charity, but it ts an assistance. To
those who need help, It helps, If they
are a soldier's dependents.
Tlio basic question ot the fund to
applicants Is: "Are you In need of
assistance, and how much?" The oft
heard complaint, "others are getting
moro thnn me" does not enter Into
the consideration of tho fund's administration tn the least. The applicant's
needs are arrived at by answering a
number of questions set bv the fund's
executive at Victoria, and thc amount
given In each case by rules by the
central executive at Ottawa.
We have found that In answering
these questions a lew, vory few I nm

Legislative Record
on Prohibition
Not a Single Member of the
House Spoke in Favor of
the Principles of
the Aet.
A very peculiar feature in connection witli the consideration of the B.
C. Prohibition Act by the provincial
legislature is that during the many
times that It was before the houso for
discussion, not ono single word wus
uttered by any. member of the legislature In praise Kf the Act or In defense
of tho principles covered hy the measure. Tho bill i-aine up, us usuul, for
first, second and third readings us
well us lengthy discussion lu committee stage. Vet not a member of the
house, Conservative, Liberal, Socialist
or Independent advocated or described
It as a Prohibition Act lu uny sense of
tho word or outlined lu whnt way the
legislation would be for tthe hest Interests of the province.
A review of the statements made by
members of tho legislature with reference to the hill In interesting us showing tholr real opinion of tho measure.
On second reading tho Honourable
W. J. Bowser, the premier, went over
the history of liotel legislation lu the
province, explaining the strict legislation of licensed premises according
to tho Bowser Act and closing his remarks with an outline of the Prohibition Act, So far as the principles of
this measure wcre concerned he said
not one word In Its favor nor did he
utter u single word to the effect that
ho believed it to bo a Prohibition Act
in any sense whatever or that sucli
legislation would be beneficial to the
Mr. H, C. Brewster, of Victoria, (tin-
leader of the Opposition), on tlie second reading of tlm bill expressed surprise that the prohibitionists hud not
brought In a Bill which would really
prohibit.   In tliis connection hc said:
"I am surprised lhat we ure nut
asked to pass an act that will actually  prohibit;  that Is, that advantage Ims not beeu taken of the
Dominion IcglHluttoit gMtiff pit unto the Province lo prohibit the
possession of liquor.*1
When discussing tn committee section 57 of tho Act (tlio clause which
provides for uncontrolled, unrestricted und unregulated importation of liquor from outside points), Mr. Brewster repealed these observations and
also severely criticised the Act In the
following words:
Ml um surprised, Indeed, thut the
Prohibition People have not taken
advantage of Ihe favorable posl*
tlon ihey now occupy uud submit
an Act that will effectually prohibit. There are many features of
this legislation not In the best Interests of our people. As an example I refer lo the burden ot
proof which should not he on the
accused as In this Act because this
Is wrong aud uu un-ltrltlsh principle,'*
Mr.   Parker  Williams,  member  for
Newcastle, when discussing the Act in
committee criticized thc measure severely.    Speaking  from  the  working-
man's standpoint, lie declared the Act
to bo class legislation of the strongest type and  said  that the bill  was
not a Prohibition measure In uny particular.  The words of Mr. Williams In
this connection were us follows:
"It would look ns If this Aet was
intended lo remove the temptation
of drink from wage earners hy Indirect  methods nnd   Is  therefore
another example of class legislation the intention being that the
workingman will lie unable to send
outside for his liquor, but the rich
man will be able to have all he
wants.    I am surprised to hear
that the Prohibitionists are satisfied with the terms  of  nn   Act
which permits any mnu to Import
Hquor Into the Province by wholesale,   I am willing Io vote for Prohibition that will prohibit but not
for such a loii-sided, jug-bundled
Imitation HiclTus this present bill."
Mr. II. B. Thomson, member from
Victoria, in spenking of the Act culled uttentlon to tlu; fact that it was
not  a  government  measure in  any
sense of the term.    The government
was in no way responsible for the bill
except for Its drafting and preparation   for  the  referendum  vote.     He
then finalized tho bill nnd gave to It
tho name  "Gold  Brick", a term  by
which the Act Is now popularly known
throughout the entire Province.   Mr.
Thomson's statements concerning the
measure were clear, concise and convincing, his words being in  part as
"Certain Prohibition leaders In
this Province will require to have
a larger supply of cunt, hypocrisy
and liuinhmr than they have used
In Initiating this measure If tliey
hope to Niicceeed. It Is a fake preposition. Its very mime Is counterfeit, and to the electors who
may desire a real prohibitory measure It Is a Mgold brick** of the
mosl pronounced type.
"There Is nothing like Prohibition In Ihe Hill. It will not diminish lhe consumption ef ulcohulle
beverages, bul wlll Increase Ihe
purchase of strong; liquor. It will
turn the home Into a saloon and
the drug store Inlo a liquor shop
where subterfuge, deceit anil false
pretence wlll become common and
open In order Io obtain liquor. It
will fake a standing army t» enforce II. If hid I. &K.HHI extra
provincial police could do so, II
Is nn-llillMi In principle- the
right te search a man's home without a warrant being retroactive
and rcpimgiiut. The onus of proof
on the accused will engender
blackmail and espionage.
"Enormous sums of money will
be sent oul of lhe province which
would otherwise be spent In the
province, taxation Increased, great
non-emptoj mcnl caused, ami In no
way, shape or form will It benefit
the stale. II Is class legislation of
the rankest description, permitting
the wealthy man to slock his home
from roof te garret If lie wish, but
the pour man must pay for a doctor's prescription and a high price
for the liquor al u drug store.**
In view of the fact that no member
of  tho  Legislature  defended  In  the
house principles tif the Prohibition Bill
and thnt representatives of alt political opinions, Conservatives, Liberals,
Independents nnd Socialists criticized
tho Act severely during Its consideration, It would seem thut the electors
of British Columblu should very carefully consider the measure before casting  their  ballot  at  thu  referendum

Small fruits this year seem to be a

coming along with American berries
offered in the stores. Creston berries

Despite all warnings horses and
cattle continue to run at large within
the city limits, annoying peaceable
citizens at night, spoiling lawns, gardens and boulevards, and muklng
barn-yards of the city sidewalks, it
Is long past time that such a backwoods country village practice should
bt; allowed, and the Chief of Police will
have the thanks of the citizens ln his
efforts lo put a summary stop to the
nuisance. Saturday night the Chief
gathered In no less than sixteen head
nf horses nnd cattle running at large
in the city. The owners had to pay
$2.00 each to release the animals but
vcu this does not seem to huve had
tho desired effect and more prosecutions are likely. There Is no desire to
jiresecute any one and ample warning has beeu given to stock owners,
but citizens who have any regard at
ull for thn appearance of the city
Streets arc determined that the city
streets, lanes und gardens shall not
be despoiled by horses and cattle running at large, not to mention the annoyance of numerous cowbells beneath the bedroom window during the
stilly night.

My Dear
Mr. Misinterpreter
of theuB.C.
Prohibition Act
Why do you quote part only of clause
57? Is the $300,000 fund for the suppression of truth disappearing too
rapidly, thus crippling you in your
noble endeavour to educate the people?
In an old book called the Bible, It
says "All men are liars" but the complete clause reads, "I said in my haste,
All men are Liars", and the meaning Is
a little different.
Please inform me what percentage
of the frequenters of the bars in Manitoba, Alberta, or any other Prohibition states, have liquor imported to
tlieir own homes? Would the people
of Washington vote for the return of
the bar? Havc the people of Manitoba, Alberta, Washington, etc., etc.,
been fooled? Do the women and children of the drunkards in the Prohibition States desire the bar to be
opened up?
Give us the facts, Mr. Speaker for
thc Bar Association of B. C. Prohlbi-
bltlon does lessen the sale and consumption of liquor; does assist In making conditions economically and morally better.
Small boy—"How do you know?"
Booze Artist—"Mrs. Washington, Alberta, Manitoba, tells me so."

Secretary of the Druukard, Women

Honesty is the
Best Policy
The reputation for honest, fair, square dealing that this store
has gained during its nineteen years of service to the people
of East Kootenay, is one the proprietors are extremely proud
of, and prouder still are via of the many friends we have made
by the practice of this policy.
Last week when we announced that many lines, owing to
being broken and to make room for new goods, would be of
fered at reduced prices we did not antisipate any great rush.
We have been more than surprised and pleased with the
result, we attribute it to the policy we preach and practice.
The sale continues this week and you will find other lines,
added and we feel quite sure a visit to the store will afford
an apportunity of saving money.

governing children by kindness, by
love, by tenderness. If a child com-1
mlts a fault take It In your arms, let!
your heart beat against It's heart;
don't go and talk to lt about hell and
the bankruptcy of thc universe. If
your child tells a He—what of It? Be
honest with the child, tell Mm you
have told hundreds of them yourself.
Then your child wlll not be afraid to
tell you when lt commits a fault; It
will not regard you as old perfection,
until tt gets a few years older, nnd
finds you are an old hypocrite, and you
cannot put a thick enough veil upon
you but what the eyes of childhood
wilt peep through It; they will t.ec;
they will find out; and when your
child tells a lie, examine yourself, and
En all probability you wlll find you
havo been a tyrant.
A tyrant father will have liars for
his children. A liar is born of tyranny on the one hand and fear on the
other. Truth comes from the lips of
courage. It Is born In confidence and
honor. If you want a child to tell you
the truth you want to be a faithful
man yourself. You go at your child,
five or six years old, with a stick ln
your hand—what Is he to do? Tell
the truth? And then he wlll get whipped. What Is he to do? I thank
Mother Nature tor putting ingenuity
In the mind of a little child so that
when It Is attacked by a brutal parent It throws up a little breastwork
In the shape of a lie.
That being done by nations lt Is
called strategy and many a general
wears his honors for having practiced
It; and will you deny It to little children to protect themselves from brutal
parents? Supposing a mau us much
larger than we are larger thun n
child would come at us with n liberty-
pole In his hand and would shout In
tones of thunder, "who broke that
plate?" Every one of us— Including
myself—would Just stund right up uud
swear either that 'We never saw that
plate, or that It wus crackod when
we got It,
Give a child a chance; there Is no
other way to huve children tell Untruth—tell the truth to tbem—Keep
your contracts with your children the
sume as you would to your banker, I
was up at Grand Rapids, Michigan, the
other day. There wus a gentleman
there, and his wife, who had promslcd
to take their little boy for a ride every
night for, ten days, or every day for
ten days, but they did not do It. They
slipped out to the barn and then went
without him. The day before I wus
there they pluyed the same game on
him again. He Is a nice little boy, an
American boy, a boy with brains, one
of those boys that don't take the hatchet story as a fact, he had his own
ideas. The fooled him again, and
they came around the corner as big
as lite, man and wife. The little fellow was standing on the doorstep with
hla nurse, and he looked nt them, und
muko this remark: "There go thc
two damnedest liars In Grand Rapids."
I merely tell you this story to show
you that children have level heads:
they understand this business. Teach
your children to tell you the truth-
tell them the truth. If there Is otto
that ever Intends to whip hit*, child I
have a favor to ask. Have your photograph taken when you are ln the net,
with your red nnd vulgar face, your
brow corrugated, pretending yon
would rather be    whipped    yourself.
Have the child's photograph taken too,
with his eyes streaming with tears,
nnd his chin dimpled with fear us a
little sheet of wuter struck by a sudden cold wind; and If your child
should die I cannot think of a sweeter
way to spend an afternoon than to go
to the graveyard in the autumn, when
the maples are clad In pink and gold,
when the scarlet runners come like
poems out of the breast of the earth
—go there and sit down and look at
that photograph and think of the flesh
now dust, and how you caused it to
whit he ln pain und agony.
I will tell you whut I nm doing; I
um doing whut little I can to save the
flesh of children. You have no right
to whip them. It Is not the way; and
yet some christians drive their children from their doors if they do wrong,
especially if It is a sweet aud tender
girl—I believe there Is no Instance on
record of any veal being given for the
return of a girl, some christians drive
them from their doors and then go
down upon their knees und ask Uod
to take care of their children. I will
never ask God to take cure of my
children unless I am doing my level
best In that same direction.
Some christians act us though they
thought when tlie Lord said "Suffer
Uttle children to come unto me", that
he had a rawhide under his mantle—
they act as if they thought so. That
Is alt wrong. I tell my children this
"Go where you may, commit what
crime you may, fall to what depths of
dcgredatlon you mny, I enn never shut
my arms, my heart or my door to you.
As long as I live you shull have one
sincere friend: do not be afraid to
tell anything wrong you have done;
ten to one if I have not done the
same thing. I am not perfection and
lt Is necessary to sin In order to have
sympathy." The sternness of iierfec-
tton I do not want. 1 um going to
live so that ray children can come to
my grave und truthfully say, "He who
sleeps here never gave us one moment
of pain." Whether you call that religion or Infidelity, suit yourselves;
that Is the way I Intend to do It.

As one who will vote ngulnst the

say tbat bringing up this matter at
the present time to lucrense the already heavy burden on tlie tax-payer
Is not a judicious one. The suitability
of the building proposed to be bought
ls very questionable. If a high school
is absolutely needed, tho wiser course
und certainly tho most economical Is
to use tho Manual Training School
now vacant by Mr. Webb's accepting
an appointment In Nelson. The number of pupils requiring a High School
Is small. Tlie six thousnnd dollars
asked for would be but a smnll Item
required when teacher's salary, janitor, fuel, etc., will bo udded. Let
