About eleven o'clock this morning
word was received at the local high
school that the Fernie high sehooi
basketball team would like to come
over for a game with the localB. It
took the Cranbrook boys somewhat
by surprise, until It was learned that
the Bchools at Fernle were eelebrat-
tlng Armistice Day with a holiday.
and presumably thought Cranbrook
'would be doing the same. Rather
than disappoint tho Fernie boys the
locals took them on, and the game
took place this afternoon on the floor
of the assembly hall In the high school
building. This room was only equipped few basketball purposes lately.
Tuesday being tho lirst day there had
been full use made of lt for this pur-
Considering these, facts the Cranbrook boys have no reason to tie ashamed of the fact that 'thoy came out
on the small end or a 38-—81 score. I
They put up some good combination, 1
but fell down on the shooting, aud
naturally tholr lack of practice yet
told somewhat against them. During the drst half ot the game Oranbrook held lt. own fairly well, only
bolnu two points down when lhe whistle blew for the period, the score being 18—16. Fernie got In some good
wtirk in the second half, but better
shooting by the local boys would have
helped to equal up the score.
The teams were:
Cranbrook — Warren Silence nnd
A. Olll, forwards; Otlo 0111, cenlre;
Itobert Beaton end Verne Woodman
Fernle — Erwln Jones and li. Was-
nock, forwards; B. Wallaco, centre;
It. Kerr and 0. Mitchell, guards; A.
Thompson, spare.
Mr. Lincoln Baker, of Iho high
sehooi staff at Fernie, accompanied
tlu, visiting boyB on tlieir trip and
refereed the game.
A number of curlers met on Tuesday evening of thla week In an effort
to get thing, going for the winter
months. A committee of three was
appointed to look after the membership, consl' ting of Messrs. N. A. Walllnger, S. fyles end W. R. Orubbe,
end It le probable within the next few
days this committee will spend some
time on the lookout for Intending
members. A deputation representing tbe Curling Club will wait upon
tbe Council to-morrow evening, to
make arrangements tor leasing the
rink from the olty on the usual terms,
and will provide for skating round
the edge of the rink, and curling In

It U understood there Is a good
deal of new material tn the city, a
number of old curler, having arrived since last season, and there ought
to be no difficulty In getting t membership of eighty or a hundred on the

coming was not received till Saturday
last, but tho crowded halt, Including
a very generous sprinkling of women
voters, was evidence enough that Mr.
Hawser und tho parly wltll which ho
lias associated himself for so long arc
still powers to bo reckoned with to
the affairs of B.C.
Dr. J. W, Rutlcdgo, president ol
the local Conservative Association,
occupied the chair, and with him on
tlie platform, In addition to Mr Bowser and Mr. T. D. Caven, the speakers of tho evening, were Messrs. W.
D. Hill, J. p. Fink, A. J. Balmont and
A. Shankland, of this city, and Mr.
Elmore staples, of Wycllffe, and Mr.
N. W. Burdett, of Klmberley. Later on they werre joined by Mr. Slier-

some lively selections by Edmonson's
Introducing Mr. Caven, Conservative candidate in the riding, the chairman expressed the gratification felt
at getting so good an attendance at
such short notice, and-especially at
soelng so many ladles present.
Mr. Cavon got quite an ovation on
rising to speak, ln referring to the
appreciable number of women present
in the audience he said lt wa. worth
remembering that it was Mr. Bowser
who had given women tbe vote In
tills province
It was up to the electorate to decide on the record of tlie Oliver government, Mr. Caven went on. They
went into power ln 1916 with the abolition of patronage in the civil service and retrenchment generally ai
iwo plauks ln their platform. Ned
ther of them had been adhered to, he
considered. As to the abolition of
patronage he pointed to the fact that
ry few of those who held appointments under the Bowser government
prior to 1916 were retained when thc
change of government occurred. As
o retrenchment, the recent referen-
lum vote cost the province 1100,000,
ind now the same expense was to be
incurred all over again.
He .paid high tribute to Dr. J. H.
King, present Liberal member, say*
ing that the only thing thev d'ffered
•>n was politics. He ,H,| no- propoo
'.o allow politics to Intorfere w<l i t.is

Quite at liberty to discuss D-. King's

'')•• He asked the electors to com*
pare l)r. King's record as their member und his own, and as to tho state
of the roods in the district, he loft it
to the Judgment of the peoplo to decide whether they were anv better
now than then.
Mr. Caven criticized the Oliver go
iM-ninent's taiation methods, men-
Honing lhe surtax which often bore
heavily on Ilie farmer who is producing foodstuffs, and the amusement
mid auto taxes, botli of whicli went In*
to lho government colters, and not a
cenl derived from these two sources
wus ever returned to tho munlcipallt*
les In tho way of assistance.
Mr. Caven said the Oliver government had been of no help to the laboring classes. Ho bclloved strongly
In the eight hour day. and would sup.
port to tho utmost nny bill designed
to put this into effcci. i„ retttinl to
Hie treatment of returned men, Mr
Caven emphasised his belief thnt con-
■'.tlons cannot be mnde too good tor
the soldiers. Ample provision should
ho mado for them, and he did not
tlnitik the Oliver government had tree*
led tho soldiers right - look at what
has beon done In Fornle. Ho pledged himself, If elected, to help tlte sol-
dlcrs to the utmost.  (Cheers).
Mr. Bowser, being briefly lntrodu-
ed by the olmlrman, got a very flat-
lerlng reception when ho arose to
open his address. Ho appreciated
the splendid attendance ot the meeting, which was .perhaps tho best of
iiis many meetings hero. He arraigned tho govornment for Its great preelection activity In regard to road-
work, giving a number of instance
whoro ho had encountered this unwonted activity In his travels througlh
lho province "There never waa
such activity as dnrtnig the past two
months." said Mr. Bowsor.
This election,   he   went on, could
have been held on the same day as

eminent must havo known at that
time that it was their intention to appeal to 'he decorate, and tlie expense
thus savod, a matter of 8100,000 or so,

were    other    precedents for such a
course as well.
In regard to the government liquor
policy. Mr. BowBer said that Oliver
was appealing to the country without
any deilnite program. Yet they must
have known even before the plebiscite what kind of legislation would
have to be brought down in the event of government sale carrying. He
characterized as absurd the Premier's
statement that he would advocate
some regulation of the near-beer bars
to prevent minors   from   frequenting
theso places Baying that the municipalities already had definite power to
prevent this by by-law. The government must of necessity havo had
program for putting Bome kind or government Bale into effect, Mr. Bowser
charged, and the fact ot the matter
was that they were afraid to bring It
forward. He did not interpret the
result of the plebiscite as In any way
a desire to revert to a wide-open pro-
wince but a mandate for what he termed "real moderation." If returned
to power Mr. BowBer promised a bill
that would effect proper control ln every sonse of the word. It would be
fair and reasonable, and once placed on the statute bookB, It would bt
rigidly enforced. He asked that the
voters mako a comparison of his record and Farris' as attorney-general
in the matter of law enforcement. Mr.
Fnrris had struck out from tho prohibition act ono clause putting the enforcement of the act Into the hands of
a commissioner rather than ln the
hands of the provincial police where
It rightfully belonged. What was
needed now was a decent act with
strict enforcement and he claimed
Mr. Farris was not tlie man, Judged
by his own record,    to be entnpted
with It.
Regarding his announced policy of
giving some measure of financial assistance to municipalities, Mr. Bowser Bald the Conservative party was
pledged to reconstruct the government policy In this matter. Upwards of 8600,000 would be collected
this year in auto licenses, but not a
dollar would come back to the municipalities, which wero badly needing
assistance in order to relieve the burden of local taxation. Ho .proposed
to take the revenue derived from the
sale of liquor, the game license revenue, the Income tax, personal property and poll tax proceeds and from
this consolidated fund give a per capita grant to the municipalities, which
hs considered a fair and' reasonable
•npoeWoa.    IMa. Mr. Boner mtts-
uiised, would be one of his first measures, if returned to power.
Passing ou  to  tlie  Oliver government's loan record, Mr, Bowser stated thut they had not yet been able to
affect a louu on as good terms as ho
himself wliile in olllce, and war cou-
ilHlons prevailed tlion, too.   He show-
up thu fallacy of Hon. John Hart's assertions that tho govornment was borrowing money on good terms now. As
a matter of fact, taking Into consideration the adverso exchange rate prevailing against Canada, lt was cost
Ing the government Wa to Host their
loans, whereas   the   former regime
had accomplished It at 5.62% In 1916.
Oliver had said the former govern
ment had ruined the credit of tbe province. "How ruined," asked Mr. BowBer? "Let me Bhow you what has been
done."    He went on to indicate how
the Liberal government had borrow-
not less than 827.636,000 In their
(our years of ollice as against bor-
rewlngs ot only 812,406.000 during the
Conservative term of olllce extending
over thlrtoen years.    The public dobt
of tlie province during tho last four
years had been increased from 419,-
000.000 to 8-I..O0O.O0O — and whore
lias tho money gone?    It has not been
used to reduco taxos, said Mr. Bowser, nor spout on tho roads, for tho
highways woro no bolter than before,
and as a raattor of fact tho Liberal
govornment had not even maintained
all tho roads, trails and bridges which
wero in oxlstence when they took of-
The money had gone, Mr. Bowsor most emphatically stated, ln salaries   and   overhead   charges   quite
largely.    Take the works department
for Instance — Dr. King's own port-
| folio.     Salaries there had risen from
| the sum of 8866 per month lE 1916 to
1 not less than 88,284 por month at the
present time — or an  Increase of
260','e.    Did we have any better roads
to Justify Uie increased armlnlstratlve
charges, Mr. Bowser eiueried? Unbusinesslike methods were now in use,
and he charged Dr. King's administration as wanting tn business capacity.
The former government in its thirteen years of exilsUnce had spent in
ull Bonie 8108,000,000, putting out the
money Into permanent    and    useful
undertaking^ and 8-4,000,000 of it
had been  spent  by the department
ot public works   in   capital investments ot different kinds.   Of tke 820,-
611,000 spent by the Oliver government, only a matter of 83,000,000 had
been laid out by Dr. King's department, and yet the cost of suparvHsIng
the expenditure of this emajler sum
nad riaen from 3.3% under the former government to a matter ot 10.43,
at present.     A llttlo Increase) might
reasonably be expected along these
lines, but not to such a startling degree.    The sum of 8160,000 had been
expended alone in automobiles for government officials,   and   there were
other evidences erf an unbusinesslike
and ncompetent administration
Pacsing dn to the consldemtion of
the p. u. e. Kallway, Mr. Bowser
said that what Mr. Oliver had called
"white elephant" wae the Premier's
own bargain. Mr. Oliver had wanted
to go into the railway ibuslness, and
now, having bad some experience ot
it, wanted to force the Dominion Government or tlie C. P. R. to take over tho road. Mr. Bowser told of the
succesBon of superintendents that had
been saddled on the line by the Premier, naming Mr. Buckworth, the present superintendent, as the most unsuitable man to tho place. This was
only ouo instance of P. O. E. mismanagement, and buying unsellable equipment for the line was another
whereby continual expense was necessary ln repairs.
Before the last election Mr. Bowser
said he had been charged by the Liberals wllh mlsiiandlln-g tbs public
funds, but when tlie audit Instituted
by the new governmeni wan completed a report was never filed ia the Legislature because no ground could be
found tor the allegations. He was
proud ot tbe tact that he cad represented the city of Vancouver In the
provincial houss for seventeen years
without a break, and never bad to go
hunting a constituency like the Premier had done. Mr. Oliver at present was engaged In a campaign of
abuse, but the leader of tha opposition stated he did cot'Intend to stoop
to such a thing.
The Liberals, he contended, had
beet In a good poltlen to .put into effect a policy ot retrenchment in 1916.
In view of conditions at that time retrenchment was the oourse good business methods demanded. Instead of
cutting down, however, they started
out the first year by tacking on an
extra 860,000 to tho civil service list.
In 1918 the salary list had grown to
close upon two million dollars a year,
last year's figure raised It to a total
of 82,819,100. and for the present
year the stupendous sub ot 88.808,
488 would be required to too* the Mil
for the civil service of thia province.

Under this heading the current issue of "Farm and Home" lias a few
eulogistic remarks to make regarding
liie .farming activities of Mr, Chosler
Fleming, of the Wycllffe district- A
cut depicting the construclon of a silo
on the Fleming farm adorns the brief
article.   It reads as follows:
"When Mr. Chester Fleming, of
Cranbrook, B.C., encountered three
dry seasons, he decided to bullil a
"This season lie planted on his three
hundred and twenty acres a goodly
liortlon of sunflowers and corn. Tht
fall ho had not the material at hand
with which to construct a silo alons
modern lines, says Mr. 11. J, Forris,
provincial silo Inspector. Mr. Fleming has on Inventive mind anil was
not to be outdone. He went to the
bush and cut a number of cedar poles
Theso polos he fixed in an upright position and made them the frame of the
"He took sheeting half an Inch ln
thlcknese and twelve Inches wide and
nailed the sheeting to the Insido of
the poles. Ho then nailed flieetinf
to the outside- of the poles and with
two or three Iron bands at the fool
of the silo ho has a first class receptacle for the crop and there will be no
food shortage this year on Mr. Fleming's land.
"Mr. Fleming Is a farmer who uses
his head and all his spare time. He
recently took a correspondence course
and secured an engineer's csrtiticato.
Ho proposes to irrigate part of his
farm from the St. Mary's Hlver, and
he himself has been able to survey tlie
land and lay out the plan for such irrigation.
"Hundreds of acres of land are idle
in this district because of lack of farm
labor, and "Farm and Home Is advised that many ot the farmers then-
would gladly pay for help by giving
tha workers an interest in the crop
rather than see the fertile areas gro*
ing wild."

beun added on to this one Item alone
in Lie last four years, and now not
less tiian 26% of th6 revenue of thi
province was going to pay civil service salaries In B.C. .No other province hi the country had a record anything Uke it.
in Justifying his criticism of the Liberal policy towards the returned
men, Mr. Bowser spoke of the nom-
nation of Col. Lister in the Kaslo riding to contest the constituency in the
Conservative Interests. Other nominations In different pans ot tte province of soldier candidates went to
show that tho soldiers very largely
stood lined up against the government. At Creston on the soldier settlement that was the feeling most
decidedly, and Mr. Bowser went on to
show bow well founded the dissatisfaction ot .the soldiers waa. The same
state of affairs was apparent at Mer-
ville on- Vancouver Island. He also
showed up the bungling of the government in trying to open up settlements
for the soldiers at Fernie and Kelowna. At both places much money
had been expended to no avail, tbe
settlements at present being deserted so far as soldiers were concerned.
After touching on the dealings of
the expensive land settlement board
named by the Liberal government to
supersede his own farm loan scheme,
Mr. Bowser referred to tbe fact that
Dr. King was now promising irrigation for St. Mary's Prairie. Hut, said
the opposition leader, Dr. King has
had four years to show his Intentions
ln regard to this project. The Conservative .party, said Mr. Bowser, waa
coaunltted to a policy of furthering Irrigation where It was feasible, and
there were other places, In addition
to SL Mary'a Prairie, where he was
convinced that Irrigation could be
worked out with greal Buccess
Mr. Bowser also touched upon the
unsatisfactory policy of the government In regard to the mineral resources, claiming that lt militated against
tbelr development. He gave concrete
Instances as to how lt workod out to
that end.
In conclusion Mr. Bowser dwelt
brledy on a few planks ln tho Conservative platform, of a distinctively con*
KtrucHvs naturer. and closed hia ad
dress, which had extended over the
biggest part ot two hours by earnestly appealing to the electorate to Judge
the government on Its record and vote
accordingly. He was given ft great
ovation at the close of his long address.
Although the hour was late, almost
everyone remained to hear a few re-
c>f Fernle the Conservative nominee
marks from Mr. Sherwood Herchmer,
who Is contesting the riding against
A. I. Fisher, the present member. Mr.
'Herchmer ls confident of success ln
the contest. He resented the tactics of the Premier in using so much
rill location in his present campaign
against Mr. Bowser. It did not get
him anywhere, Mr. Herchmer asserted, and did the Premier no credit.

The object and purpose of the Brigade is to afford to as many boys as

Today, the anniversary of
Armistice Day, will witness a
strange and interesting ceremony iu the Empire's most celebrated fane. The body of an
unknown warrior has been
brought from the Somme and
ls to be laid to rest, amongst
kings, prophets, statesmen and
poets, in the great Westminster Abbey. The King-Emperor will be the chief mourner,
representing the nation, as he
most fittingly can do, as lt
mourns for the countless numbers who laid down their lives
ln the bitter contest of four
long, weary years. Word has
gone forth from Britain's Premier that the wheels of Industry as far as possible should
cease for a few moments in respect to that mighty host who
sleep in Flanders and else
where. A cenotaph in Whitehall, London, is being unveiled
by thc King in honor of the
glorious dead, with an absence
of pomp or religious ceremony
typifying the fact that Britain's
army, like the very nation itself, is greater than the
breadth of any one creed.
France is offering similar
homage to her heroic dead.
The bodies of eight unknown
poilus were disinterred from as-
many different fields of battle
wliere France, too, made her
name glorious, and after lvjng
in full state together, one, pick-
otit by a private soldier, is to be
given a state funeral and laid
to rest beneath the great Arc
de Triomphe, ln Paris. The remaining seven will be burled
with full military honors on the
battlefield of Verdun.
Only two years have passed
since the outburst of spontaneous rejoicing arose throughout the Empire when the word
was flashed to the four winds
of heaven that the enemy had
virtually surrendered and admitted total defeat. Only two
years since the gaping wounds
were evident to all; only a few
months since those days of uncertainty, but to many apparently, those days are no longer
real, but only a dream. Yet If
any one date ought to mean
more to us than another, November llth should ever stand
out as the great red letter day
of the Empire, and, Indeed, of
the world.
Efforts have been made in
many quarters to maintain a
warm, deep feeling of sentiment by rearing up some monument or building to stand as
a constant reminder of sacrifice and victory. In our own
community efforts were made
some time ago to erect some
suitable memorial to our fallen
men. Divergent opinions arose regarding the character of
this memorial, and the difference of opinion seems to have
dominated the situation. With
/am link
I i
advice, I tried
iln. In.
the passing of the days this difficulty will Increase and the
opportunity may slip by entirely. With the spirit of Armistice Day upon us the time
ought to be opportune to settle
this matter in a definite and fitting way. If no amicable solution seems possible under existing circumstances, the decision as to what form or forms
the memorial shall take might
well be left in the hands of the
comrades of those who have
"gone west."
Many factors produce a great
people, but all the factors are
not economic or political In
character. Europe today attracts countless numbers in
their search for something different from that which is to be
found ln the new world. That
something may be summed up
In two words — tradition and
sentiment. Monuments, anniversaries and historic buildings
and places have all played
their part in the moulding and
developing of a people. With
great economic tasks before us
the tendency is that we shall
forget these very facts and thus
fall in the end to leave a lasting mark behind us.
Election turmoil, or any other interest of the moment
should not prevent us from putting at least a few moments'
meditation upon the anniversary being commemorated today. The date should be perpetually dedicated to the memory of those who fell during
those four years of war. Now
the war is over, let's forget It
—one hears some sentiment of
this kind abroad now, but what
needs to be done Is rather that
we remember lt and what lt
cost to win lt.
The Trappists of Quebec
Tho Province ot Quebec Ib distinctly different trom all others ln Canada. There ls an old world flavor
that Is missing elsewhere. It possesses the oldest structures ln the
Dominion and some ot the mystery
of the Old World ls associated with
Quebec. Part ol this ls linked wtth
the old monastic orders. For Instance, at Oka, 30 miles trom the
City ot Montreal, Is the old Oka Monastery belonging to the ClBterlan Order and retaining all the ancient can*
touts and manners of that body. It
waB founded yenrs ago as a branch
of a French ordsr and In It since that
time some of the keeneBt brains ot
Canada havo found a sanctuary from
tho rush of the world.
Thoro are fow placea on this continent whore hooded monks can be
seen working In the Holds, but this Ib
ono of thorn. Thero the Trapplet
lolls at his labors garbod ln llowlng
robes, and with, ln many Instances
the vow ot perpetual silenco. Fifteen hundred acros of land aro attached to the groat Institution, uud
thero Ib conducted one of the finest
experimental farms ln Canada. Tho
TraplRt Fiithern are much ln demand
for addresses throughout the province on Improved methods of farming. The monks all take part In the
farm labors, and the result Is a din
trict that is a treat to the visitor.
Tho day starts at two o'clock In the
morning, but the toll Ib broken by
a long rest at two o'clock ln the afternoon. Tho work of the day is
begun by religious exercises at the
early hour.
The fruit trees of the farm are
among tho best ln the province.
Ehioromous quantities of grapes aro
grown for the famous Oka wine,
while the cheese of the monastery
has acquired not merely a Montreal
reputation, but almost a Dominion-
wide one.
A day at Oka Is one tbat stands
out In the memory of the visitor for
a long time.

.Mr. Bryan
Oue can easily understand why Mr.
Bryan should have been ignored by
the Democratic national convention.
If he has made more presidential
campaigns than any other man ln the
country, except Mr. Debs, he has not
learned much by experience.
It will probably be decided tbat
Ills advice to the President and Vice-
President to resign successively, thus
working Senator Harding Into the
presidency before his term begins, ls
about tbe most foolish thing that
oven Mr. Bryan has been able to recommend. The Constitution of the
United States can be amended, but
It can hardly be deliberately violated
In the way that Mr. Bryan advises.
When Mr. Bryan proposes that Mr.
Wilson resign his offlce, he Is return
Ing a compliment paid to himself by
the president. But while It ls constitutionally possible tor a President
to part with bis secretary of state,
or even with a couple of them, lt Is
not provided that a retired secretary
of state should retire a president.

Changes in Germany
The change which has taken placo
in the attitude of Germans towards
official personages was Illustrated the
other day at Templeof Field, where
the German Emperor formerly twice
a year reviewed the troops of the
Berlin garrison. President Ebert
visited tbe field a tew days ago to
watch the filming ot a motion picture
hut Instead ot the adulation which
used to be nccorded to the Emepror,
the crowd ot 4,000 costumed performers failed to recognise the Pres*
'dent, Jostled him and gave him scant
show at the sandwich counter. The
Herman president wandered about
unaccompanied and stood tor a while
bosldo the camera man while a scene
was photographed. Later he mado
his way against the edge ol a crowd
witnessing a "riot ecene." When the
crowd was ordered out ot camera
range, Herr Ebert received no con*
alderatlon from the Jostling spectators. One of tho crowd, who rccog
timed him, called attention to his
lirosenco, but few gave him any notice.—Victoria Colonist.

Mothers! Fathors! AU Interested citlzons of Cranbrook! During
tliis coming winter, the season bo
greatly enjoyed by all, are your boys
and girls going to aimlessly walk the
Btreets at night for the lack of some
place to go to enjoy a good time? The
pleasures of Cranbrook for young
people always were few and far between, and now are you all cutting
them down even more by having no
skating rink? What mother would
sooner see her son in the pool room
than out enjoying a good, healthy
skate? What father, may I ask,
would sooner see his daughter in a
dance hall than the skating link?
These questions I ask hoping they
will go homo and awaken you to the
absolute necessity of a skating rink
— open air or otherwise.

In Cranbrook electors should bear
!n mind that they can only "t.tn for
one candidate for this rridlng at the
forthcoming provincial elections on
December lst.
Directions for tbe guidance of voters in voting at the forthcoming Provincial election on December 1st, are
"ontained ln the new elections net,
which says: The voter may vote for
one candidate; the voter will go ir.io
one of the compartments and, with
the pencil provided in the compartment, place a cross ln the white
square opposite the name of each
candidate for whom he votes, thus X.
The voter will then fold the ballot-
paper across so as to conceal thc
names of the candidates and the
marks upon the face, but so as to expose the official mark, stamped by
the Presiding Officer or Clerk on Its
back, and, leaving the compartment,
will, without showing the front of the
paper to anyone, show the official
mark on the back to the Presiding
Officer, and then in the presence ot
the presiding officer put the paper In
the ballot-box and forthwith quit tne
polling booth.
It a voter inadvertantly spoils a
ballot-paper he can return lt to the
Presiding Officer, who will, If satlnded
of such lnadvertance, give him an-
other ballot-paper.
If a voter votes for more than one
candidate, or placos any mark on the
ballot-pnper by which he ma/ be uf*
terwards Identified, his ballot-paper
will be void and not counted.
If the voter takeB a ballot-paper
out of the pulling booth, or deposits
in the ballot-box aftyother paper than
the one glvou him by the Presiding
Officer, he shall, on summary c-jtulct-
ion, be liable to imprisonment for any
term not exceeding six months.

Mr. Thos. Morrison. President of the Liberal Association at Rutland,

When tho Conservative Oovernment left office In 1910 the salaries
paid lo officials in the Province amounted to $1,004,222. while today under
the Oliv.er-Farris Oovernment these salaries have reached the enormous
figure of 98,202,402—or au Increase In 4 yurs uf $1,5:1H,200, which is a
quarter of ihe total revenue of the Province.
Tbe record of absconding officials under the Oliver-Farris Administration has never been equalled in the history of the Province. Their Oral Attorney-General Mr. M. A. Macdonald was forced io resign owing to his having received $15,000 campaign funds from tbe Mackenzie-Mann interests.
lie wus also Involved In his lirst election in lfllti In the "plugging" scandal
when Seattle toughs were brought over from Seattle under one John T.
Scott, to vote absentees and dead men in the Ciiy of Vancouver. Scott was
assisted in this work by a man named Cook who was afterwards appointed
by Attorney-General Farris to the public sen-ice and placed in charge of
automobile licenses. Later on he absconded and togehter with Scott is
now residing lu the United States and has never heen punished. Mr.
FIndlay, tbe Prohibition Commissioner, was also appointed by Attorney-
General Farris nud tried to escape but was caught ou the U.S. boundary
and has since served a term iu the penitentiary.
Although the Mothers' Pension Act passed the Legislature last April,
the first payment under this Act was not made until the mouth of October,
just before the election.
The Minimum Wage Hoard has proved a failure as employers are allowed to evade lis provisions.
What the New Conservative Government
Will Do if Elected to Office
1. Thoy will give yon an efficient and economical Administration.
2. They will reduce tbe great overhead salary list but uot lu such
n way us to effect tlie Public Service and at the same lime pay reasonable
salaries, considering the high cost uT living, lo Ihose In lhe employ of tbe
.1. They will do everything possible to encourage aud assist In developing natural resources.
4.    They will try to establish, as tbey did in the past, more pulp mills
In tliis Province,
ri. They will restore our credit in lhe money markets where they left
tt lu 1916,
fi. They will follow onl their original policy of 1014 In extending
the Pacltlc Greal ICasti-ru Hallway Intu the peace River and touch tbe great
grain growing area of Western Alberta so as lo divert that shipping Into
our ('oust harbours.
7. They will encourage prospecting in both minerals and oil and will
cancel the reserves which the Oliver Government has placed on coal, Iron
nnd oil iu this Province.
s. They will go Into tbe money markets and borrow money ul the
lowest possible rate of interest anil re-loan It lo farmers in loans from 10
to 40 years.
9. Tbey will Institute u proper and practical policy of encouraging
soldiers to go ou tbo land.
10, They will give assistance to tbe Municipalities by paying them u
por capita grant from the Consolidated Revenue which will, have the effect
of reducing taxes.
11. They will encourage irrigation In the portions of the Province requiring It by assuming Government ownership aud control of the water for
Irrigation purposes, construction of slorage surveys and main canals as
public utilities.
"™" 12.    They will also assist lhe distribution of Irrigation water hy guaranteeing of bonds of water municipalities.
13. They will give consideration io further necessary irrigating facilities by means of assistance to hydro-electric projects.
14. They will introduce legislation nnd carry into effect the declared
wishes of the people as expressed In the recent referndum on liquor; at the
same time this Act must be a fair and rasonable one so that the Government will have absolute control of the traffic and that there will he no
abuse In the uses of liquor but same to he used only In moderation. Heavy
penalties will be Included In the Act for all Infractions and the Act will be
strictly enforced. They will also use every effort with the Dominion Government, under whose jurisdiction the matter lies, to see that legislation
ia passed at Ottawa which Will stop the importation of liquor Into this Province by private parties so that all liquor purchased und sold in British
Columbia will be uhsoluiely under Government control.
16. The Conservative Government will also baud over to the Municipalities a share of the profits derived from tlie sale of liquor lu the Guv
eminent stores so that the burden of taxation in Munidpulitis muy he reduced by this contribution from the Government.
10. The above are anly a few uf the reforms which will be instituted
hy the Conservative Government should tbey be elected on the lst of December, as they stand pledged lo adopt a constructive business-like progrutnme
whlcb will be administered by business men, luoking forward to a more
successful period In thc next live years and with more results than we huve
seen under the Oliver Administration.

thought that sugar would liavo he
como so disturbing a factor in tho political situation? Who would have
thought that tt would put the already
groggy Hoard uf Commerce practically down and out? The Judicial
Committee of the Privy Council was
expected lu do that. But, tired of
waiting, the Hoard seemed to take
matters Into Its own hands and took
a dose, not of poison, hut of sugar,
with apparently fatal results.
ll' BUgar did no more than settle
the fate of the Hoard of Commerce,
there would 1)0 liltle regret and much
less cause fyr apprehension. itul

save themselves that got lioih the
Board of Commerce and. to soma extent, the Government in wrong.
Much digging is required to t*.et ai

mystery it is. For 'his reason It is

Rumor has It that one firm owed a
bank of high standing a very large
amount of money aud was in difficulties. This undoubtedly called forth
the request for a substantial loan to
the refiners, or for relief of some
kind that would he worth considerable In money. So one can now see
why tho refiners gol so busy.
it undoubtedly was another ca
of attempting to make tho public
no good for the mistakes of a few
Influential Individuals committed, nut
In the discharge of public duly, but
iu private business. In oilier words,
ihe public was expected to pull the

ation. But today conditions are so
uncertain that no ouo knows what
lies ahead. It is the dread of the
aftermath   following   the   period   of
wild speculation thai liar '	
tng'tho bunking interest
ed States a great deal of worry. This
explains why Ihere has been so sharp
ut ruction of credits,
he refiners did not make out n:
strong case before the cabinet,
d, the proceedings were so short
us so little discussion
se of reality aoomed to be
king. Thero was little of tho concern exhibited that usually stamps
iiself on the brows of those who are
ahout to lose nineteen nr twenty-millions. No one could not help but
gain the impression thut Ihe refiners
had caught n glimpse of the silver
lining that Is said to tinge even thc
darkest cloud.
As tho prime minister put
is up to tbo refiners lo make onl
case against tho action of tho Gov-'
eminent In suspending -I"' sugur order of the Board of Commerce. Bill
instead of doing this, tho refiners
OticlUded their case with the Blgnlfl-
ant admission '"As il Is now stated
that there was nol a warrant in low
for the action of the Hoard, we do
not press for the order to be confirmed, but leave our claims for redress
In tbe hands of tbe people and the
Oovernment of Canada with complete
confidence that Justice will be done."
This at least showed a humble ami
contrite spirit.
This admission really knocked iiu
bottom out of the refiners case. It
then came down lo n plea thnt since
the Board of Comerce had kept prices tn chock on a rising market, the
public should now, on a falling market, help tbe refiners out hy agreeing to purchase sugar at a price high-
than it could be Imported tor.
Some of the reasons iidvunced in support of this plou are amusing. Take
the following: "Maintenance of the
Board's order, that is, maintenance
of the preseni Canadian price, would
menu that it will cost thc consumer
fifty-one cents between now and the
end of the year." The numerous
money-raising campaigns ure an evidence that the public is ready to support a worthy cause; but the refiners
are very much mistaken If they imagine that many men, women or children are eager In contribute fifty-
one cenls to their relief fund,
Xoto this other refiners' argument:
"Will ho (the consumer) refuse to
contribute at the outside fifty-one
cents In order to restore throu thousand or moro idle refinery workers
to profitable employment) preserve
himself from future domination by
United States sugur In lores ts uud insure un orderly instead of u precipitate reduction in prices.1" The average consumer might be willing to
contribute fifty-one conts lo lb b In I the
roflnery omptoyeoB, hut what assurance would they have that thoy would
receive the benefit? As for future
domination by American sugar lusts, ihe average consumer Is pre-
pureii to tuke chances on that, At
present ho Is eager to escape from
thc domination of the home sugur
Tho plea for un "orderly Instead
of a precipitate reduction in prices"
appeals to the consumer least of all.
Ask the average housewife whether
she would have prices come down in
a hurry or gradually, and she would
reply: "Hy all means, let them
come down in a hurry before the preserving season ends." The orderly
method of reduction would mean tbe
paying of tip-top prices during Ihe
time when sugar Is most needed for
preserving. So 11 Is quite evident
that ihe refiners' statement wns anything but a convincing argument
from tho standpoint of tho consumer.
Besides, there was nothing to ehow
thnt they are anything like us hard
up afl they professed lo be. When
u supplicant for aid says thnt he Is
willing to leave himself in the bands
of the people, and to take whatever
scraps they dare lo throw at  h!m,
he  gives  the  impression   that   hr
not so badly oft.
The render ii* -y now dri v iiif* ow/i
conclusions as to the weakness of iho
refinera' cuse, especially as tho law
officers of the Crown held that the
Board of Comerce had no power to
make such un order, and that if it
had Bitch power it was never contemplated Ihat such power should bo
granted to it. The next question is:
how did lho Board get it into Its head
thai It had such power, and that having it, it would be justified in exercising It? This is another uxiinplu of
t that not sound tvguinonlB,
but influence puts over a number o.'

discussion here. It Is generally admitted that u drop of fifty cents a
bushel in whent Is very serious, not
only fur lhe farmers but for the
whole country, ns it will mean u loss
of probably $100,000,000 on the
year's crop. Whether the Wheat
Hoard could huve prevented this ls
a debatable question,
Wero it not that wheat now entors
lhe Cnlted States free uf duty, wheat
prices in Canada would lie much lower than they now ave. Indeed, tbe
American market ts tlie only tiling
hut hus prevenied the lulling of tho
lotiom out of the wheat prices. Had
this been closed, and with British in-
leresta refusing to buy ut present prl-
. where could the Canadian furm-
huve sold?
The Republicans arc talking of restoring tbe duty on wheal if they are
returned lo power; lml there is reason to think that Is election talk
more than aything else. The United
States hns so much thc better of lhe
trude between the two countries that,
should It. start a tariff war, such
would assuredly he to Its great disadvantage'. A country that sells
to anothor $280,000,000 more than
It imports therefrom (and ihis Is the
amount by which Oni ted States exports lo Canada exceeds Canada's exports to the United States) can only
loso through a tariff war, which
would assuredly come if the United
Slates put up the burs on Canadian
wheat. The loan talk of tariff wars
between these two countries the bettor: Ihey want ono another's trade
too much for that.

of McGlll University, ahould find good
scope for his organizing ability uud

Campaign for $5,000,000, which haa
been arranged for tbe week commencing November 16th. Thla ium,
large for a Canadian Jnlveralty, hut
■mall ln comparison with the recent
campaigns for Harvard, Yale, Cornell
and Princeton, ls necessary to put
the great Canadian I'nive.'slty financially on Its feet, and to help to recoup the looses caused by Its active
participation In the war and by the
absence of many students on war service overseas; also to renew and extend equipment, to increase professors' salaries; to extend the bulldlnga to meet the requirements of the
larger number of student:, in attendance since the clos: of tbe war; to
meet the speclul requirements of the
various faculties; to erect dormitories for students, a common dining
hall, professors' res.dences, and a
convocation hall. Many leading
Montreal citizens have accepted tbjs
responsibility of beading and arranging the work of the campaign,
which will be along Hues made familiar ln .Canada In years bast.
McGlll, from Its very Inception,
nearly a hur/lred years ago, was
identified with scientific research and
application. Thc Faculty of Medicine Is the (>!.!< st Faculty of the University, and the first degree' conferred waB (he medical degree given
to Dr. I.ogle. The practical trend
at JkkUiii's UacMnK appealed to busi
ness men, such as tho late Sir William Macdonald and Lord Strathcona,
and no doubt Influenced (hem In
helping the University with substantial endowments. The pre-eminence
of McGlll In Applied Scleuce is largely due to tho policy of Sli William
Dawson, during whose regime lhe
course ot Knglneerlng was enlarged
Into the Department of Practical
Sclonce, aud later into the faculty uf
Applied Science.

Party held in Vancouver laat week by
Mr. William Savage, the president.
Mr. Savage included In his report
a cony of a lengthy letter addressed
in April of tliis year to the Premier
uud the Attorney-General, asking that
ttlie provincial act be amended, and
that tho amended act be enforced for
one year through a committee of three
before any referendum wus submitted. In tho alternative, the letter
asked for a referendum under the Dominion Act.
The contention waB made by Mr.
Savage ln the letter that prohibition
never hud a fair trial, through sheer
lack nt enforcement.
A few days after the letter waa
read beforo tho Premier and the At-
tomoy-General, the bill providing for
the referendum on provincial prohibition was passed.
Mr. Savage said he felt aura that it
a referendum under the Dominion Act
bad been allowed, the vote would
have been in favor ot a "bone dry"
prohibition. He predicted that an
increase in crime and family distress
would follow the decision to embark
on government sale and would continue until such time as the people
demanded prohibition.
The People's Prohibition arty has
decided that it cannot lend any assistance to the Moderation League in
drafting a bill for the Bale of liquor
under government control, pointing
out that its charter objects are to
obtain the prohibition of the manu-
facure and sale of alcoholic liquors,
and not to assist in arranging for Its

mado at Victoria last week by Hon.

of thia province sanctioning the perpetual loan-raising program of tthe
Liberal government. The proceeds
of the loan will be used for good
roads and buildings, and extensions
for the University of British Colombia. The selling campaign would be
put under way, it is further stated,
about the end of the year, aad full
details of the loan, as to price, etc.,
will be given out later.

than Mr. Bowser and Mr. Caven on
Tuesday, whose meeting wuh arranged

Dr. King B-poke of Iiis record as minister of public works and membor for

for forty minutes or uo with the question of government sale of liquor, and
then did--not Bay what his .program in
this matter was to be. Later they
went to Creston to address a meeting,
at which "Honest John" appears to
have learned some things regarding
his treatment of the soldier settlement
question he did not appear to know
before, though it might have been
thought that being the head of tbe government be might have known what
was being done. He appears also to
be greatly surprised that the soldiers

There was a very good attendance
at tho Methodist Chmurch on Wednesday evening of this week to hear an
olocutionary program given by Miss
Frances Nlckawa- The program
she presented surprised even those
who were expecting something good.
Miss Nlckawa is a Cree Indian by
birth, born on the Keewatln Reserve.
Quite young In life she became attached to Norway House, a Methodist Industrial School, where she spent her
earliest years. Being then adopted
by one of her teachers, Miss Riley,
who is now accompanying her protege on the present tour, Miss Nlckawa came to Vancouver whore she
completed a high school course, and
now contemplates entering' a university. Her present tour is extending
right across the continent from Vancouver to Ottawa.
The first part of her program consisted of miscellaneous numbers, Including the following: "Enocurage-
ment," "A Few Bars In the Key of G,"
"Tho Riders of tbe Plains," and "Setting the Hen."
For the Becond part of tbe program
Miss Nickawa appeared in the striking native costume, and her numbers
went to make up what many who
heard her will agree was one of the
finest hour's entertainment even given in the city. The Famine Scene
from "Hiawatha" was one of her items at this time, and Miss Nickawa
gave a rendering of this selection that
lt ls bard to conceive could be excelled In any particular. Her other
numbers were "The Song My Paddle
Sings," and "The Cattle Thief," by
Pauline Johnson, the Indian poetess,
and "The Pilot of the -Plains/"
