THE RED CROSS SOCIETY
It is truism that war is a ruinous and destructive operation.
It is one thing however to give
mental assent to that proposition.
It is quite another to feel it in
every nerve and fibre of your
being and to let your giving to
the Red Cross funds be dictated
by that intense emotional consciousness as if war's . destruct-
iveness were visible in your own
town and your own street.
Every citizen at the present
time should cultivate an imaginative sensitiveness to the grim
realities of Europe. It is very
easy to be stoical and confident,
complacent and self indulgent.
The sights and sounds of war are
far away. All its horrors are
only distant echoes. It is only
by an effort of sympathetic imagination that we can feel the
intense human woe that constitutes the dark background to
every Red Cross appeal.
When an earthquake has destroyed a town or a volcano
devastated whole districts, the
whole world has felt a keen
emotion and has been lavish with
its generosity. But war is an
operation far more productive of
loss of life and wounds and
misery than innumerable tidal
waves or earthquakes or volcanoes.
It is difficult to form a sane
estimate of the probable casualties of the present war. It is
known however that the British
casualties have exceeded 250,000.
That is certainly at a reasonable
estimate much more than ten
per cent of the forces engaged
at the front. It can easily be seen
from this average that the British
and Canadian Red Cross Societies
face an immense task in the
future.
Think of what three or four
hundred thousand sick „and
wounded means. Imagine the
entire population of one of our
largest cities, occupying each one
a bed in some gigantic hospital.
The thing staggers the imagii -
ation. And yet such a condition
is not far from a reality at present.
Certainly any one who takes
the trouble to reflect will instantly recognize the immense need
which confronts the Red Cross.
And the natural result of such
reflection is generous and unceasing contribution to the funds
of the society.
THE NATION DETERMINED
London, Nov. 2,—Premier Asquith made his long expected
address on the war today. His
survey which was both retrospective and prospective, being
as full as military exigencies
seemed to permit. The notable
interest in his statement was
shown by the crowded House, all
the diplomatic, Peers' and visitors galleries being filled to overflowing.
The Premier was given a warm
ovation .when he rose to speak,
this being his first appearance
in the House of Commons since
his illness,
He opened with an expression
of regret at the mishap to King
George and assured the House
that the King was progressing
as well as could be expected and
that his injuries were not serious.
Mr. Asquith said he intended
to describe, as far as possible,
the aerial prospective position
to the nation, which "is as determined today as it as ever been to
prosecute the war to a successful
conclusion, and which trusts the
government, by whomsoever
controlled, to use every means
to the attainment of that purpose.
"It is true that today some
parts of the horizon are overcast.
This, like other wars, has been
fruitful of surprises and disappointments. The moment calls
for three things—a proper sense
of perspective, a limitless stock
of patience and overflowing
reservoirs of courage, both active
and passive."
Mr. Asquith referred to the
"small coterie of professional
whiners which kept our enemies
supplied daily with a diet of
falsehoods."
Notice is hereby given that
the Board of Directors of the
Union and Comox District Hospital intends to apply one month
after date to the Registrar of
Joint Stock Companies for the
Province of British Columbia at
Victoria, for permission to change
the name from the Union and
Comox District Hospital to the
Cumberland General Hospital.

The Saloon Must Go.
The saloon must go, The blood
of the myriad it has slain cries
out from the earth for its overthrow. The groans and tears of
heart-broken parents, the agonies of worse than widowed wives,
the shame and degradation  of a
countless host of children, go up
to heaven in one mighty "accusation against it.   Are our eyes
blinded, that we can not see the
malignant curse it  works upon
our feilows. Are our ears leaden,
that we cannot hear the mighty
cry of agony that goes up  continually from its victims? Are we
so selfish, so   careless  of  the
welfare of those of our brethren,
•that we shall not arise in the
interest of eternal right and exterminate these plague-spots of
modern civilization, stop up these
breeding holes of hell, shut forever those gates of death through
whose portals there gce3 down
to damnation an army of 75,000
of our fellow-men every   year?
The saloon is the key to the enemy's position.   Let us  capture
it and break his defensive line.
With the saloon swept away, the
strength of the foe will have departed, as did that of  Samson
when he was shorn of his locks.

Does It Pay ?
Does it pay to have fifty working men poor and ragged in ordtr
to have one saloon-keeper dressed
in broadcloth and flush of money?
Does it pay to hang one citizen
because another got him drunk?
Does it pay to have a dozen
intelligent young men turned into thieves and vagabonds that
one may get a living selling rum?
Does it pay to have a hundred
homes blasted,  ruined, defiled,
turned into a hell of misery, strife
and want, that some wholesale
liquor seller may build up a large
fortune?
Does it pay to have hundreds of
men and women in the almshouse,
penitentiaries and hospitals, and
thousands more in asylums for
the insane and idiotic, that a few
capitalists of the whiskey ring
may profit?
 .  y.
What Doee Prohibition Mean ?
It means bread to hungry children, it means happiness to sad
and overworked women, it means
the help of the community for
men who are struggling with a
fearful appetite.
\ It means the pratical application of our prayer, "Lead us not
into temptation," for our sons
and our friends when  they step
across the threshold of their home
It means that the government
of the province or city will not,
for dollars and cents, allow men
to destroy"the happniess of your
daughters (or some other man's
daughter) whose husband, when
not tempted to the uttermost,
will prove faithful to his family
and   useful to the community,
Prohibition means that drunken   men  kill    their wives and-
daughters there will be'no blood-
guiltness   on your   hands who
voted to remove the opportunity
of intoxication from the inebriate.
It is easier to keep a boy from
acquiring an appetite for liquor,
than it is to  cure the appetite
after it is acquired, when he becomes a man.   Your high-toned,
high-licensed saloons, are simply
snares for the feet of childhood,
and pitfalls in the paths of men.
They exist by reason of license
laws,   and will   cease to exist
when those laws are repealed."
Those laws are passed by the
people, and you, as part of the
people, are not only accountable
for the existence of the saloons,
but for the evils which they produce; and how you can consistently pray to God while you license
saloons to prey upon the people,
is more than we can understand,
and we believe we will continue
to be led into temptation as long
as we make the temptation to be
led.
Whatever may be our political
principles and party this subject
of temperance underlies all political policies and partisanships. THE ISLANDER. CUMBERLAND, B.C.

" They Also Serve."
(From Punch.
("Week, by week they are waiting for a chance which never entries.
Some of them, to the envy of their comrades, have had their clay—-
in the.Dogger Bank, the Heligoland Bight, the Falkland Islands, the
Dardanelles. But for most of them the day is still to come, It is
impossible to describe the strain of waiting for it."*—The Archbishop
of York, in The Times.]
The saucy Arethusa met the warships of the  foe,
And the Lion and Undaunfed he'pxl to send them down below,
But remember, oh remember, while we make their praises ring,
That the men who do the waiting also serve our Lord and King.
The Emden kept things lively from Seychelles to Singapore,
Till the Sydeny found her at the game and settled up the score;
But don't forget the others when you cheer the victors' plu»kj
For the men who do the waiting haven't had the Sydney's luck.
Von Spee was smiling broadly when he neared the Falkland Isles,
But he hadn't made allowance for our gallant Sturdee's wiles,
So he and his went under—and we cheer to hear the news,
Yet the men who do the waiting are as stout as Sturdee's crews.
The British Tigers ramped and roared.   The cruisers wouldn't wait;
They scuttled hard for port and left the Bluecher to her fate.
Here's to our tars who braved the foe amid .the bursting shell—-
But the men who do the waiting deserve our thanks as well.
They are ready, yes, and longing for the signal to advance,
But they haven't yet been given the other fellow's chance,
They fret to join the melee, they are eager for the call;
And the men who do the waiting have the hardest job of all.
But the "Day" is noj far distant when the thunder-roll shall, peal,
And the German fleet to meet their foe shall follow out of Kiel;
The guns shall lift their voices in irrevocable blast-
Then the men who do the waiting will have got their chance at  last.

was bad, and who was sad, because the wolf drew closer. This
made him smile, and for a while
the man of teas and sages thought
cheerful thinks, forgot the kinks,
and paid his clerks their wages.
And Billiam Burk, the old head
clerk, put up some thankful
phrases; his wife was ill—the
druggist's bill had worried him
like blazes. The druggist cried,
"Doggone your hide, I thank you
for these roubles; I'm in the hole

that winsome maid, his first

much trouble ceased, and joy

ASK FOR TROOPS
Don't forget the West Cumber
land Conservative Band's Masquerade Ball on Friday, Nov. 19.
The Cumberland Board of Trade
held a special meeting.in the
Council Chambers on Wednesday
evening to consider the advisability of inviting the government to
winter 500 troops in this city.
Several members pointed out that
there were several vacant buildings in Cumberland that could
be used as quarters for the soldiers and rented at a nominal
figure.
The Board appointed T. B.
O'Connell, Robert Henderson and
Edward W. Bickle as a committee
to get in touch with the proper
authorities and report. The suggestion of the Ladysmith Board
of Trade to become part of an
Island Board was declined as the
Cumberland Board of Trade was
already affiliated with the Associated Boards of Trade of South
Western, British Columbia.
The permanent fuel oil committee reported progress and the
secretary stated that a communication had been sent to H. S.
Clements, M. P. for the (Jomox-
Atlin district on the fuel oil
question. Several other important matters came up for consideration after which the meeting
adjourned.

His Critical Moment
"My dog never disturbed you," indignantly roared tbe owner of a dear
departed, "and I can prove that he
was as quiet and gentle as Is possible!"
"Yes,   that's   so," sorrowfully answered the neighbor.
"Well," spluttered he of the harrowed feelings, "what in the dickens
did you kill him for?"
"Nerves."
"Nerves—when he was Hke a lamb!"
"True, he never barked," admitted
the nervy neighbor; "but he would
creep Into my garden a dozen times
a night, Bit down, look at the moon
draw his breath, open his mouth, prepare himself for an awful howl, and
then just as suddenly quietly close
his mouth and slink back. No; I
never heard him howl, but the bus
pense was killing me!"
