UP-COUNTRY VERY
A sweeping victory for the
Government's candidates in the
up-country constituencies is the
prediction of Mr. R. F. Green,
M.P., who returned to the city
after a two weeks' tour of the
interior with Premier Bowser.
"We had a splendid trip," said
Mr. Green. "The reception tendered Premier Bowser was a
magnificent one, and everywhere
he spoke he was greeted with
large audiences, who gave him a
rousing welcome. Tlie electors
in the seven constituencies in
which I accompanied tho premier
•-Columbia, Fernie, Cranbrook,
Kaslo, Trail, Slocan and Revelstoke, showed unmistakably by
their attitude towards the premier, that they have every confidence in his administration, and
it was apparent that they desire
no change at this time but, instead, are satisfied that the progressive programme of the Government is undoubtedly the best
thing for the province. They
feel that the Conservative Government's bona fides has been
amply demonstrated by the constructive legislation which was
passed at the last session of the
Legislature. They contrast these
performances of the administration with the entire lack of any
definite proposals from the opponents of lhe Government, and
have been quick to appraise ft
its real value the Liberal campaign of insinuation and slander,
a campaign which has so far disclosed not a single idea to indicate in what manner the opposition proposes to advance the best
interests of Ihe province.
"The measures which the Government has already taken for
the encouragement of the timber,
miningand agricultural industries
have met with the whole-hearted
approval of the people in that
portion of the province. Business
conditions in that section are exceptionally good, better in fact
than for years past. More men
are at work in the mining end
lumbering industries than ever,
and the prices of the products of
both the mills and the mines are
belter than ever. In consequence
the people of the interior desire
no change. They feel that the
policy under which good business
conditions have returned and
which will still further improve
matters, is the one entitled to
their support. They are content
to retain a definite program of
tried value rather than to endorse
a party which has so far shown
itself to be incompetent to advance a single logical reason why
it should be given the reins of
power. In my opinion, and I have
seen something of election campaigns in this province, the electors of British Columbia are
behind the Government. There
is absolutely no question in my
mind that the Government will
be returned to power at this
coming election.—Daily Colonist.

PROHIBITIVE BILL
BEST MEASURE YET
(By a Member of the People's Prohibition
Movement of Cumberland, B.C.
On September 14th every voter
will be called upon to register his
vote for or against the Prohibition
Bill. Those familiar with prohibitive liquor legislation in other
parts of Canada pronounce it tne
best prohibitive measure that has
yet been produced in any province.
In support of the contention is
the fact that the liquor people
claim it to be the worst, and their
highly paid advertisements which
at present occupy so much space
in the daily papers, bewail the
many evils which must inevitably
result if  it should become law,
An attempt is made to totally
discredit the Bill on the ground
that.while the sale of liquor as a
beverage is prohibited within
the Province it may be imported
from outside the province. These
subsidized critics deliberately
seek to imply that the ruthors
of the Bill, either intentionally or
thiough natural stupidity failed
to fully avail themselves of their
opportunity for providing a fuller
measure of Prohibition.
As a matter of fact, these critics, in their efforts to hoodwink
the public, know quite well that
the Provincial Legislature has
not the power to enact a law to
prevent liquor being imported
from without the Province. Such
a measure would have to emanate from the Dominion Government which controls interprovin-
cial trade and commerce.
The passage of the Prohibition
Bill means the abolition of the
Bar and the treating habit, and
with them the cases of eighty
per cent of drunkenness. It
means the removal from the rising generation of the temptation
to take their first drink and ensures for the future a sober,
healthy and prosperous class of
citizens.
The promoters of the prohibition movement undertook their
work with the one desire of
bringing forward a measure that
would reduce, if not eliminate,
the existing outstanding evils in
connection with the liquor traffic. To this end they have given
freely of their time, energy and
money, without wish or hope of
financial reward. Their work
has beer, purely in the interest
of good citizenship, and removing from our midst the most damning blight on n.odern civilization.
Can the same high motives be
ascribed to the critics of the Bill?
Obviously not. The interests
they represent have for years enjoyed the fat profits and illgotten
gains derived from the licensed
privilege to make drunkards and
consequently criminals, paupers,
outcasts and orphans; to supply
raw material for police courts
and assizes; to produce the finished product for penitentiaries,
asylums, brothels and workhouses, and with the help of the
law of heredity to transmit untold disease, mental, moral and
physical, to generations yet unborn.
Yet these would-be champions
of virtuous laws would seem almost to merit the Victoria Cross
in their heroic efforts to save an
innocent public from the passage
of this Bill, and incidentally perpetuate their own profits.
In a booklet published and
mailed broadcast under the title
of "The Truth," are found state
ments and inferences so far removed from what the title implies that no voter can fail to un
derstand the motives which inspired its publication.
Licensed control of the liquor
traffic has been tried and convicted by the jury of public opinion, Where prohibition has taken its place the change in almost eveiy instance has been
successful beyond expectation.
We are our brother's keeper to
a very great extent, and if a little sacrifice is demanded of us to
ensure the welfare and happiness
of a father, "brother, relative or
friend are we worthy of their
love, their trust or their friendship if we refuse to malte that
sacrifice?
The opportunity is yours on
the 14th., of September to relegate the liquor traffic and its present evils to the limbo of the past.
May every voter realize his or
her individual responsibility and
use voice and vote accordingly.
"Of all sad  words of tongue or
pen
The saddest are these- 'It might
have been."

CITY COUNCIL
HOLDS SESSION
The City Council held their regular meeting in the Council Chambers on Monday evening. Present, His Worship, Mayor Parnham, Aldermen Macdonald, Henderson, Banks, Brown and Carey.
The minutes of the previous
regular meeting were read and
adopted.
A communication was received
from Thc Vancouver General
Hospital, enclosing a statement
of patients from Cumberland receiving treatment between January 1st, and June 30th,, 1916,
This was received and the City
Clerk instructed to notify the
Hospital that the Chinaman was
not a resident of this City. The
following report was read from
Chief of Police Ward on the condition of the Kilpatrick property:
His Worship, The Mayor and
Aldermen, Cumberland, B. C,
--Gentlemen: In accordance
with instructions given by you
at the last regular meeting of
the Council re., Mr. D. Kilpat-
rick's property on Dunsmuir Avenue, I have inspected the property and find as follows:
The building as it now stands
is a fire trap of the v orst kind
as the doors, back and front, are
open so that children can enter
the building, which is littered by
hay and straw. The front of the
building is in a most unsafe condition for pedestrians on that
side of the street, owing to loose
hoards, which looseness is apparently caused by the nails which
originally  held them  being per
ished and useless with rust. Taking the premises as a whole, they
are in a most dilapidated condition, and an eyesore to the community.
I beg to remain,  Gentlemen,
Yours faithfully, Jas. Ward.
City Constable.
The Council requested the City
Clerk to forward a copy of this
report to Mr. Kilpatrick and again
requests him to put his building
in a safe condition.
Alexander Robinson, Superintendent of Education, informed
the City Clerk that the half yearly grant on account of outside
pupils would secure the attention
required.
The following accounts were
referred to the finance committee for payment if found correct.

GOOD COUNSEL.
Dr. Tamage said that the man
who never made a blunder has
never yet been born. If he had
been he would have died right
away. The first blunder of the
universe was born right in Para
dise, and it has had a large num
ber of children.
Some people think the more religion a man has the longer his
face will be; but the idea of making a man's face the counter on
which to measure his religion by
the yard! Why, the longest-faced
man I ever knew borrowed $25
of me, and out of pure delicacy
of feeling never afterward referred to the subject.
Uont be stilted. Most of us
have got to go through this world
afoot, and if anybody will walk
beside me and give me a lift, 1
shall he everlastingly obligated
to him.
As a rule, a man can do only
one thing at a time and do it well.
Some men are specially prepared
for their work by natural advantages, as was Hugh Miller, and
some by sheer trouble, reaching
their natural places only after
graduating at the university of
hard knocks. It doesn't make
much difference what you do, if
you only do it. Any man by diligent effort ought to reach sue
cess in any occupation by the
time he is thirty or thirty-five.
But he must stick to one thing,
Centre your efforts on one thing.
Dont be afraid to be called a man
of one idea. Better have one
big idea than a score of little
ones. A man whose while energy, body and soul is concentrated in one direction, is a tremendous man. Look out for him.
There is a vast difference between a house and a home. The
house is but the building and the
furniture, the outward shelter
and gathering place of a household. The home includes the
kindly family affection, the
thoughtful care and ready sympathy and ready confidence and
trust of the members. A true
home breathes the atmosphere
of love. A child should be made
to feel that his home is indeed a
home, the happiest place in the
world to him, not merely an outward shelter and resting place,
but a centre of enjoyment by
love, the thought and remembrance of which shall be the safe
guard of his life as he goes forth
to the world, giving strength
and proportion to his character,
and turning his thought to all
that may prepare for the heavenly home when the scenes of earth
shall have passed away.
"He who would, free from
malice, pass his days, must live
obscuieand never merit prajse."
So breathed one who had passed
through many life battles. He
had been a close observer. Malice toward none and charity for
all,' has been the thought of
great souls ever since creation's
dawn. All along the pathway of
life where that thought has been
the most dwelt on there have always budded and bloomed the

sweetest flowers. Where that
principle has been practised the
most, and applied the most, round
about have fluttered in the air
the prettiest birds and with the
sweetest tunes. Where that virtue has the most deeply penetrated human souls, there can be
found the purest and highest
civilization, the loveliest temples
and the most beautiful cottages
with the most fruitful vines of
love twining about.
It was at a Sunday School examination, and the superintendent was showing off the results
of his labors. During the exercises he asked the children who
could tell him anything about
Peter. No one answered. The
question was repeated several
times, till Anally a little girl held
up her hand. "Well, my dear,"
said the superintendent, "that's
right; I am glad to see that there
is one little girl who will put these
larger boys and girls to shame."
The little girl came forward to
the platform and was told to tell
the audience what she knew of
Peter. She put her finger in her
mouth, and looking very smiling,
said:
"Peter, Peter, Pumpkin eater,
Had a wife and couldn't keep her;
Put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well."
Amid the roar that followed
she hurried gaily to her seat.

Outside Only
It waa a warm summer's mornh;,.'
and Patrick Murphy decided to shat'e
himself out In his little backyard.
Mrs. Maloney, observing him from
her window, viewed his operations
with amazement.
"Och, Mr. Mr.rphy," she exclaimel.
"are ye shaving outside?"
"Shure," he replied, "did ye think
01  was fur*loined?"
Don't Judge
"There ls too much talk about higher education for women," remarked
Mrs. Bompas, severely. "Her chief
business ln to get married, and the
less educated she Is the better her
husband  likes her."
"Oh, but you shouldn't Judge all
men by father, mamma!" returned
Uie lmpertnrahle son.
The One He Liked Belt
■e—Tou know, 111 spend any amount
of money on anybody, If 1 am fond
of them.
She—Yes, I've noticed that, you ara
always spending money on yourself.
Why He Didn't Suit
"Mornln'I   Guv'nor In?" Inquired a
confident-looking stranger of a meek
young mau who stood weighing biscuits In t, grocer's shop.
"Yes, sir.''
"Urn.    You're    sdvertlslng    for  a
manage!*, I believe?"
"Yes,  we aie."
"Present manager about anywhere?-'
"Well,   I'm    manager    al   prcsenl,
sir."
"Ah! rbat'a good. N'ow, what
port of chap may lho guv'nor be?
Old?"
. "About  my own  ngp."
"Had any trouble with lilm at a'l?"
"Well.   I   can't   i-ay   1   hnve."
"Close-fli'led   BCrew,  ain't  lie?"
"Some  people might  call him to."
"Ah, well!    If 1 get nn here and he
tries flr.y of his nonsense on me, he'll
get his head in the sugar bin.    Junt
give  him my nitine, wlll  y< u?"
"Well, If you are applying for tho
situation, I'm taking on the new man."
"By Jove!   You are?   Now, 1 should
like  to  get  this   shop.      Think  yon
could come to an innn^dinte decision
if I made it worth your while?"
"Shouldn't wonder."
"Ah!    Now  I s'nose  we  may consider  It  seti|"d,  eh?" as he s'lppeil
a half-sovereign Int   the meek young
man's hand.
"Yes." said t.tat Individual, as lie
quietly pocketed lhe coin. "Somehow I don't think you'd suit."
"Thunder! Not suit; why, how's
that?"
"Well, you see, I happen to be tho
guv'nor myself."
