The Price of Newspapers
The increase in the price of
printing paper has  become  so
serious that publishers are getting together to devise measures
to meet the situation.     Many
have already increased their subscription rates and some  have
been forced to suspend publication,   We are advised, however,
by the publishers of The Family
Herald   and   Weekly   Star   of
Montreal that for the present,
anyway, there will be no increase
ins the price of that paper, and
we are permitted to offer The
Family    Herald    and    Weekly
Star along with The Islander for
the small sum of $2.00 that is one
full year's subscriptions to each
paper.   This offer is good only
Nov. 30-1916, as it may be found
necessary to make a change then.
The Publishers of The Family
Herald and Weekly Stai notwithstanding the enormous increase
in cost of production,  have decided to spend more money than
ever improving the paper,  and
to give their great army of readers greater value than ever.     A
full year's subscription to The
Islander and The Family Herald
and Weekly Star will cost only
$2.00,   provided orders   are   received    before    Nov.     30-1916.

London, Nov. 1.—A completed
count of the Overseas soldiers'
vote in British Columbia this
afternoon may alter the result in
Vancouver and Victoria.
Premier Bowser is elected, and
there was a possibility that Tis-
dall in Vancouver and Alex Stewart in Victoria might be elected
by bare majorities, but they fell
slightly behind on the final figures.
The prohibition vote totals was
5260 against; 2061 for.
The figures in Vancouver for
prohibition are 1528 against; 475
for. Victoria's figures are 882
against, and 318 for.
No place in the province in the
soldiers' vote has a majority for
prohibition, The total suffrage
vote was 3772 in its favor, and
3461 against. Of course the referenda will remain open until the
end of the year.
Premier Bowser was elected as
fifth member for the city of Vancouver today, receiving 934 votes
from the soldiers in England compared with 563 received by his
nearest oponent on the Liberal
ticket, Mr. Patrick Donnelly.
Mr. J. S. Cowper, who had been
fifth on the Liberal ticket, drops
down to sixth place, managing
to save his seat by but fifty-two
majority ovei his running mate,
Mr. Donnelly. Mr. Cowper had
a narrow escape, as he received
fewer votes from the soldiers a-
broad than any other of the po
litical candieates.
The feature of the voting was
the big vote received by Mr. C.
E. Tisdall, who received 1032
votes out of the 1900 cast, But
Mr. Tisdall was 751 behind Mr.
Cowper on the votes of the civilian and soldiers at home, so his
brilliant run abroad, where he
pulled 568 of his opponents' lead,
will not suffice to give him the
seat.
All of the Conservative candidates did better on the soldier
vote abroad than did their Liberal opponents, Mr. M. A. Macdonald, who secured the largest
number of Liberal votes with a
number 836, coming behind Mr.
Tisdall. Premier Bowser, Thomas
Duke, Walter Leek and Dr. Mc-
Guire in the affections of the
soldiers abroad.
Hon. Alex. Stewart in Victoria
on the final figures lacked only 72
of beating H. C. Hall, the lowest
Liberal. The net final totals are:
Hall, 3161; Stewart, 3089.
The net majority in favor of
prohibition on the civilian vote
added to tne soldiers' vote in
Canada was.9034. Overseas the
soldiers defeated prohibition by
3199, leaving the net final majority in favor of prohibition at 5835,
TO BE ABOLISHED
The Vancouver Province, in
it's report of the Liberal inauguration banquet, to Premier-elect
Brewster last Tuesday says:
Premier-elect Brewster was
given a great reception, and
said that it was evident that the
elections, had resulted in the people being properly represented.
He praised the attitude of Mr.
Donnelly, and said that the interests of the country were bigger than the interests of any individual..
"With the honor conferred upon us," said the Premier-elect,
"goes responsibility, and we ex'
pect your support as long as we
do right, and no longer."
Mr. Brewster went on to say
that the new government was
confronted with two very unpopular .things in the province.
On the question of patronage
Mr. Brtwster took a decided
stand. He said that a section of
the press was quoting him on
this matter, and hoped he would
live up to his statement that
there would be no patronage.
This, argued Mr. Brewster, was
an indication that this section
was fearing the loss of the pap-
fed by the Bowser government.
This section also expected him to
establish a coalition government
so as to show no partisanship.
Mr. Brewster was very definite
in reiterating his intention to a-
bolish patronage.
"If the abolition of patronage
is going to split the Liberal party,
then I am going to ask others,
outside the Liberal party, to
stand behind me.   But we are

City Council
London, Nov.—Premier Asquith, in a written reply to a

have the greatest confidence in
the members you have elected to
support me. We are but tne directors and you are the shareholders, We want your critism
if we are doing wrong, and if we
are not going to have Mr. Donnelly with us then we will be glad
to have Mr. Bowser to criticise
our acts.
'But the day of the silent vote
in the caucus and the passing of
legislation behind closed doors is
forever gone," he said,
Mr. Brewster closed with a
stirring reference to the work
developing upon people in British
Columbia to look after the dependents of those gone to the
front and the men who return.
"We must make this a good
place for returned men." he said,
"and if we don't look afler their
dependents we are not worthy
of the protection they are giving:"
Mr. M. A. Macdonald received
a great ovation and said that the
recent election had been fought
without gloves and, in some quarters without scruples.
Mr. Ralph Smith said it was a
delusion to think that the new
government could remove all the
evils of the past administration
in twenty-four hours, It would
take time to tear down the old
shacks, remove the rotten foundations and get to solid rock.
Mr. J. S. Cowper got laughter
and applause with some good-
natured fun he poked at Premier
Bowser for his dilatoriness in
stepping out of office. He told
of some weird consequences
which happened to a man who
tried "absent treatment" for a
withered leg, and suggested that
if all other peaceable methods
failed, that some "absent treatment" might be tried on Mr.
Bowser.
"But this great election triumph was indeed a triumph of
faith," said the  speaker  in   a

triumph of faith in the great
heart of the people, of faith in

of our people, of faith in our

The Post Office Department has
! been notified by the British Post
i Office that many parcels sent
from Canada to Prisoners of War
in Germany are being received
in London in a damaged condition,
so that frequently they have to
be repacked before they can be
forwarded to Holland for transmission to Germany. The Brit
ish Post Office adds that in most
eases the damage appears to be
due to the fact that the parcels
were inadequately packed by the
senders.
The public are warned, therefore, that parcels for Prisoners of
War, unless they are very strongly packed, will probably arrive
in such a condition as to be of
little or no use to the recipients.
Ordinary thin cardboard boxes,
such as shoeboxes, and thin
wooden boxes should not be
used; nor does a single sheet of
ordinary brown paper afford sufficient protection. Even where
proper materials are used, it is
important that the contents
should be tightly packed so as
not to shake about during transit. The following forms of
packing are recommended: —
(1) Strong double cardboard
or strawboard boxes. Those made
of corrugated cardboard and having lids which completely enclose
the sides of the box and are most
suitable.
(2) Tin boxes such as are used
for packing biscuits.
(3) Strong wooden boxes.
(4) Several folds of s*out packing paper.
The British authorities advise
that parcels for Prisoners of War
in Germany must not be wrapped
in linen, calico, canvas or any
other textile material.
Parcels posted in Canada for
Prisoners of War in Germany
which have not been adequately
packed by the senders, and
will not be forwarded but will
be returned to the senders, as
the British Post Office has notified the Department that parcels
which are inadequately packed
must be returned to the senders.

MI 0F_JE MILL
Whan the Clatter of the Reawakened Machinery Turned
Into Music.
By HAROLD CARTER.
"Seems to me you young folks don't
tblnk of notblng but pleasure," said
Mrs. Adams querulously, as sbe
Hatched her daughter Lizzie put on
her new hat. "I never had clothes
like thoso you've bought since you've
been ln tbo mill."
"For tho Lord's sake, mother, don't
you want mo to go out at all?" replied tbe other crossly. "Tbere, I'm
sorry," she added, as sbe stooped to
kiss the invalid. "I won't be gone
long."
"Well, see that Sl Wlnton brings
you back safe," grumbled tbe elder
woman, watching her daughter enviously t* she passed through the door
tnd Into the village street.
But Llltle Adams was not thinking
of 81 Wlnton, whom her mother bad
telected ta ber beau. SI was not unwilling that he should be the subject
of parental tpprobatlon, for the Adams family was the flrst ln the county, and lt waB a collateral branch, the
Wtnthrop Adamses, who owned the
big new cotton mill which drew
thousands of young people from tho
mountain districts to work thero. Liz*
tio Adams, however, was of tho poor*
er branch. Her small wage was all
that sustained their family of two—-
and before that they had lived ln tbo
utmost penury. Their tiny cottage
was at the end of the village street,
and almost bare. Mrs. Adams grudged
Lizzlo the few dollars Bhe withheld for
clotheB.
Lizzie Adams was not going to the
village. Instead she made her way
toward the brand new brick mansion of her cousin Herbert, who had
come from college the week before
to take charge of the mill upon the
occasion of his father's sudden demise. They had been sweethearts ln
tbe good old days, before Wlnthrop
Adams had risen from a country store-
So Long as Her Mother   Lived   She
Must Go Back.
keeper to a country magnate, by a
shrewd Investment. But doubtless
Herbert had long ago forgotten her.
For she had not Been him for four-
five years, it must be. And ber last
memory of that stolen klBB under the
maples, and her still more shameful
acquiescence In lt, made her cheeks
redden as she walked.
She was not hoping to meet Herbert; sbe was Just taking a stroll, attired In her best hat and her one
wearable gown. And If he should re*
member his promise about some day
returning—well—- Dangerous thoughts
Bitted through her little head.
Those who seek, find. Lizzie met
Herbert, driving a smart trap, and by
his sido sat a young lady, dressed in
what seemed to Lizzie the height of
fashion. And because there was hardly room to pass tho trap stopped, and
Herbert recognized hor and bowed
and smiled and turned to the girl at
his side and Bpoke. Then she smiled
scornfully, and tho trap disappeared
behind her.
"You haven't quarreled with Sl Wlnton?" asked her mother, crossly, when
Lizzie returned.
"No, I didn't meet htm," anBwcred
the girl. Two minutes later Bhe was
Btlfling her sobs upon her bed In the
little room adjoining tho invalid's.
If Herbert had no thoughts for her
upon tho Btreet, how would he greet
her ln the mill when, dressed In her
working clothes and covered with lint,
Bhe tolled at the machine? Shocould
not bear to drag herself Into the placp
next morning. The girls stood there,
heavy-eyed, sullen of face, dreaming of
Sunday and of their beaux.
"Now, then, don't stand dreaming
there!" shouted MIsh Jones, the forewoman, to Lizzie. "Seems to mo
you're tho unhandiest girl In tho mill.
Don't you know young Mr. Adams Is
coming round to inspect this place this
morning?''
Lizzie Adams turned sullenly to her
machine. Sho had long ago learned
that her distant relationship to the
owner exposed her only to derision.
Old Winthrop Adams had never liked
tho girl. The branches of the family
had quarreled in the long ago, and ho
had justified his conscience by giving
her a place in the mill.
It was toward noon when Herbert
Adams came ln, escorted by the foreman. Ho passed slowly along the
Une of machines,   listening   tQ   hit
guide's explanation. Halt way down
he came upon Lizzie. Ha must have
seen her. But be did not even look
at her. Lizzie felt herself reddening;
she heard Miss Jones snicker audibly
behind her.    Herbert passed on.
"Seems to me some folks ought to
know their places." Miss Jones remarked to one of her friends, "and not
go making eyes at their betters."
Lizzie worked on ln silence. The
clatter of the machinery seemed a torture. She felt herself caught helplessly ln the Jaws of these monsters,
just as the cotton was caught, ravelled, Bhredded and seeded. She was
equaily helpless. And the future
stretched away, as far as Bhe could
Bee, equally hopeless. She would
never be able to leave the mill—unless
Sl Wlnton—
At noon she crept away to spend the
half hour's recess somewhere under
the trees, away from the prying eyes
of tbose who had seen the incident of
tbe morning. The forest extended almost to the mill fence; It was part of
the old Adams estate and sacred
against the ax. In the distance,
through the treea, Lizzie could see
the red brick house. A thought came
to ber. Why should she not run away!
Why not Just walk and walk and walk
Into those green vistas of trees, anywhere, so long as she never turned
back?
No! So long as her mother lived
Bhe must go back, from day to day,
to endure the Jeers and scoffs and
coarse speech of thoso others who
recognized that Bhe was not one of
thorn, and envied and hated her.
Suddenly a shadow fell acrosB her
path and sbo found herself looking up
Into the face of a bronzed young man
whose eyes were bent upon her with
unmlstakablo Interest.
"Lizzie!" exclaimed the mill owner, "I saw you leaving the grounds,
tnd followed you. How do you do?
I've often thought of you since we
ptrted—let me see, years ago. It
must be."
"Tou seemed to forget your politeness this morning In the mill," the girl
retorted, struggling to keep back ber
tears,
"Why," exclaimed the young man
ln astonishment, "really, I was so em-
barraBesd—I thought it best—"
"Yes, you were embarrassed because I wasn't dressed like your friend
yesterday," she blurted out, and could
have bitten hor tongue afterward.
"Miss Keith? Why sho—why, Lizzie, dear, she's the agent for tho cotton company—Just a business woman,
who ls negotiating for tbe year's output  You didn't think—"
Suddenly he caught her ln his arms.
"Lizzie," he whlBpered, with his face
very close to hers, "did you think I
hsd forgotten? Don't you know my
father sent me away to college because I cared? I want you, Lizzie, just
as I always did; I want a girl of my
own country and my own people, not—
Miss Keith!"
And the clatter of tho reawakening
mill suddenly turned Into music.

BUILDING RULES MOST STRICT
Those of Switzerland Designed to Give
Protection to Adjacent Prop.
erty Owners.
'A peculiar building regulation ls ln
force ln most parts of Switzerland. It
ls required that before tho erection of
a new building, frames or screeds
must bo erected to mark out tho shape
of the building In profile as well as
ln plan. In practice this amounts to
erecting nt each angle ot the building
a pole or maBt with a projecting triangular frame attached to It at tha
cornice level to Indicate the height
and projection of the cornice. The
building law of the canon Zurich requires tbat the framework shall be
erected when the plans are submitted
for approval by the public authorities.
The purpose of the rule apparently ls
to bring out, In advance of construction, the architectural relations of tha
building to adjoining structures and
to the districts in which It Ilea, both
for aiding the municipal authorities In
passing upon the plans from the architectural viewpoint and giving the
neighboring owners an opportunity to
Judge of tho effect of the proposed
new building upon their Interests.
Velocity of Light.
Tho first determination of tho velocity of light was made by liomcr In
1676. The method was based upon tho
observation of the eclipses of Jupiter's
satellites, phenomena of frequent recurrence and easy of observation. Ab-
Bumlng that light required time wherein to move from place to place through
space, the Interval between successive
eclipses would appear too short when
the earth Is approaching Jupiter nnd
too long when tbo earth Is receding
therefrom. Romer found ln his observations that such was the case and
that the Interval was conditioned by
the rate of speed at which the earth
changed places relatively to Jupiter.
From theBe constants Homer computed
that light expended shout sixteen and
one-half minutes In crossing tho
earth's orbit, From this is deduced a
voloclty of about 186,600 miles a second.—Harper's Weekly.
