A scene at the bomb throwing contest.  This game was introduced by Lieut.
W. Lynch.   He has taught the men to use the discuss throw as the trenches
are too narrow for overhand throwing.
London, Nov, 14—Only one
British merchant vessel of more
than 1600 tons was sunk by mine
or submarine this week, according to weekly statement of shipping losses issued this evening.
This is the lowest number since
Germany began Ber submarine
campaign. Five vessels of less
than 1600 tons, and one fishing
boat were sunk during the week.
The Admiralty statement follows:
Arrivals, 2,125: sailings 2,307.
"British merchantmen over
1600 tons sunk by mine or submarine, 1; under 1600 tons 5. .
"Fishing vessels sunk, 1, previously.
"British merchantmen unsuccessfully attacked, including
three previously, 8."
Not since Germany began her
intensified submarine campaign
in February has the total number of British merchantmen sunk
by mine or submarine been as
small as the above Admiralty
statement shows. The previous
low record was 12 merchantmen, eight of them of tonnage
in excess of 1600, and four less
than 1600 tons. •
' The high crest of the wave of
British merchantmen sunk was
during the week of April 22,
when 40 ships of 1600 tons and
over and 15 of less tonnage were
sunk, a total of 56. The next
high record was the following
week, when 38 vessels of the
larger and 13 of the smaller category were sent to the bottom.
A Musical Treat
OnVThursday evening -in the
Presbyterian Church, lovers of
music were given-a treat of the
highest order. The whole entertainment was in the hands of
three talented ladies who excelled in their respective parts. Miss
Margaret Campbell McCraney as
violin soloist, Mrs. A. Z. De-
Long as mezzo soprano soloist,
and Miss T. Williams as accompanist. The programme consisted of some of the choicest musical selections and every piece
stood as a masterpiece, receiving
hearty applause from those present. Miss Williams as accompanist excelled herself, and no
doubt was enjoyed to the full by
the many friends in this city,
she having grown up in the district. A goodly number turned
out to enjoy an evening in such a
way as they seldom have the
privilege of, in our city, and music lovers from Union Bay and
the district were there to show
their appreciation.
The Red Cross benefitted to
the extent of ten dollars, and the
same was handed to Mrs. Dr.
Hicks, secretary of the local Red

"Dissension among ourselves is
fatal to the success of any and
every campaign. Let us have
endurance, concentration and un
ity. Personal and sectional differences, suspicions and resentment must be forgotten or postponed. This is no time to talk
of parties. There is but one party, the nation's."—Premier
Lloyd George at Albert Hall, last
There could be no more patriotic creed than the above for the
Canadian people today. Union
Government is clearly carrying
w ith it a great majority of the
best brains of the country. But
the good will and support of every man counts. If there are
Canadian Liberals who are still
in doubt as to what their course
should be. we hope they shall
weigh the words of Lloyd George,
that great champion of British
Liberalism, and decide to join
with Howell and Carvell, Guthrie and Sifton, Crerar and Mac-
Lean in "concentration and unity" here, rather than with the
Lauriers and the Olivers, the
Murphys and theLemieux.
Two outstanding national re-
foims are already in sight as a
result of .Union Government.
The first is Civil Service Reform.
The second is abolition of patronage in the purchase of Government supplies.
Civil Service Reform, which is
the first plank in the new Government's platform, is a policy
which, translated into effect, will
do more than any one single
measure to revolutionize political
life in Canada for the better.
Patronage preference in appointments to office has been a curse
to Canadian public life. It has
made our politics low and petty
and sordid, has given politics a
wrong meaning in the minds of
the people, and has made the
very word "politician" a term of
reproach, thus endangering the
integrity and solidity of our government.
Civil Service reform, reform
that will eliminate "pull" and
party favoritism as the only
qualifications necessary for the
acquirement of jobs in the civil
service, and substitute in their
stead merit, integrity and ability
will purify public life as nothing
else can, will fasten upon the
popular consciousness a new and
more healthy merning of government, and will make for greater
honesty and efficiency in national
service. •
Hardly less beneficial to the
nation should be the decision already arrived at, to eliminate
all patronage lists from the various departments of the government. Patronage lists, that is
to say lists of partizans of the
Government in power, kept in
all Government Departments for
preference in the letting of contracts and the purchase of supplies, have existed in Canada.
since Confederation. Sanctioned
by Canadian leaders from Sir
John Macdonald to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, and entrenched by custom, the practice had eaten its
way into the very heart of out
political system, with most disastrous results for the honesty
and efficiency of the public service. All the great and petty
scandals that have degraded Canadian politics have had their
source in patronage. And mainly because of the old, unreasoning partizanship, the partizan-
ship whose creed was that to the
victors belonged the spoils, no
Government ever dared to relinquish such a powerful weapon as
the patronage list in retaining
office and power.
With the two parties united
and partizansnip dethroned, the
new Government is in a position
to bring about the reform that
the party system practically
made impossible. No longer will
Government contracts be the sole
preserves of party vampires and
bosses, nor purchase of public
supplies, the medium through
which men who feed at the party
trough shall fatten at the nation's
For the elimination of patronage lists means that in the future the country's business will
be transacted in a business-like
way, that waste and extrava
gance and rake-offs have come
to an end, that greater honesty
and efficiency must prevail.
Let the country be thankful
that UNION has brought about
such a wholesome change. Let
it be thankful that the curse of
patronage that has besmirched
public life and trailed politics in
the mire, is at last to be consigned to the "scrap-heap of discarded political infamies. If
Union achieved nothing else, it
has justified itself by this alone.
In the acceptance of a position
as a member of an exemption
board, ot in the administration
of justice of any kind, an individual should always first free himself from all prejudice, animosity or party feeling that he may
hold towards his fellow nan.
Otherwise his actions will react
and rebound to his own disaster.

Why Canada Needs
More Money
TJP to date the war has cost Canada about $700,000,000.
Canada has spent in Canada over $400,000,000 on her own account.
Canada has spent in Canada on behalf of Great Britain over $300,000,000.
What Canada spends for Great Britain is really loaned to Great Britain
and will be repaid or credited to Canada later on.
Great Britain needs so much ready-
cash to finance her own expenditures at
home for herself and for our Allies that she
must buy on credit from Canada, and from
every other country where she can get
Of course Great Britain's credit is so
good that other countries, in order to get her
trade, are quite as willing to give her credit
as we are in Canada.
Canada wants to help Great Britain
not only because Canada wants Britain's
trade but because we are Canada and she is
Great Britain—both members of the same
great Empire, kin of our kin, our motherland. —
For Canada it is both a filial and
patriotic duty to supply Great Britain's
war needs and remember, her needs are our
needs. Also it is in Canada's self-interest
to supply those needs and thus keep open
a market for our products.
• * •
Now, Britain needs our wheat, our
cheese, cattle, hogs, and many manufactured articles.
Canada also needs many of these things
—between the two it amounts to more
than a million dollars a day in cash.
And the producers must be paid in
Neither Canada nor Great Britain
could go to a Canadian farmer and buy
his wheat or his cattle on credit.
The farmer and all other producers
might be ever so willing to give their
country credit but they could not do it
because they have to pay cash for wages,
for rent, materials, etc. They must be paid
in cash, or its equivalent.
So Canada says to Great Britain:—"I
will lend you the money so that you can
pay cash to Canada's producers for what
you want.
"I will borrow this money from our
own people just as you borrow money from
your people.
"I will also borrow from the people of
Canada money to pay cash for all the products that Canada, as well as Great Britain,
needs in Canada."
That is Canada's practical, patriotic
part in helping to win the war.
Without this credit the Canadian producer could not sell to Great Britain, and
without these Canadian products the war
would be prolonged.
So it is necessary for Canada to give
to Great Britain the credit in order that
Canada's own producers, who need amirket,
will have one; and in order that Great
Britain which needs the products to win the
war, will get them.
• • *
Now how does Canada get the mousy
by which both Canada and Britain can , ly
cash for Canada's products?
By borrowing it from the people of
Canada through the sale of Canada's
Victory Bonds to be offered in November.
That is why Canad i's Victory Bon ! I
are offered to the people—to raise money
to help to finish the war.
"Canada must keep her shoulder to the
wheel even though it be a chariot of fire,"
and the way for Canada to keep her
shoulder to the wheel is by buying
