London, Nov. 21.—In one of
his longest communiques, Field
Marshal Sir Douglas Haig,
Commander of the British troops
in France, thrilled the British
nation today with news of perhaps the most striking victory
yet achieved on the western
front, and certainly, owing to
the novel phases of the British
attack, a victory reviving hope
at a very gloomy period.
"The Hindenburg line smashed, "was the giant caption in the
e-ening papers and aptly focuses
the point engaging public interest nnd attention, and although
there was no bell-ringing or other marked sign of public jubilation, wherever men gathered together there was acclamation of
the brilliant accomplishment of
Field Marshal Haig and Gen.
Byng and discussion of the surprising features of the attack-
first, its secrecy and surprise to
the enemy; second, astonishment
at the number and novel employment of tanks; third, the absence
of artillery preparation and the
customary barrage fire to assist
the infantry advance; and fourth
there were many guesses why
the tremendous German defensive organizations in the attacked
area, in the word? of one commentator, "melted away" before
the British onslaught.
Everywhere the victory was
heralded as the forerunner of
still bigger things, and the question "what next?" is on everybody's lips, General Byng is the
hero of the hour—the honor of
planning and carrying out the
unique stroke belongs to him—
and his picture and a sketch of
his career appears in all the papers.
The Hindenberg or Siegfried
line was believed by the Germans
to be strong enough to hold back
the world armies. Its triple cordon of three separate trench systems had a central line with openings at frequent intervals,
making it unnecessary for the
troops to move above ground,
thus keeping the garrison safe
under the heaviest gunfire. It
is believed that much of this tunnel now is in the possession of
the British.

Every citizen is probably ready
to accept the abstract principle
that the practice of thrift and
economy, with the object of ac-
cumu'ating the wherewithal for
purchasing war bonds, is good
for his compatriots: but not all
of tis have applied that principle
to our personal affairs to the extent that is desirable. It may
not then be out of place to briefly
outline practicable methods of
saving by which each one may
get together some additional dollars or hundreds of dollars for
the admirable purpose of lending
to the Government. When the
way is thus plainly charted, refusal to take it is more likely to
involve us in trouble with our re'
Bpective consciences.
The expenditures of individual
iicoiiie producers are mainly un
der the following heads: rents,
board or interest on mortgages;
si mi-capital outlay on such things
as house furniture, pianos, vic-
trolas, motor eais, etc., wages
paid to domestic or personal servants, provisions, amusements,
and the outlay on tobacco, beer
and spirits; holidays or vocation,
Probably if any"!' us sit down
and severely analyze the personal expenditures as above classified, we should find a field for
war ban savings under several
of the heads. In view of the urgency of the Allies' need of funds
it is essential that everyone overhaul the expense account with
the object of saving every possible dollar for supporting our
great cause. It has become bad
form during the psst three years
to give ostentatious or expensive
entertainments and social functions; and similarly, our amusements, recreations, holidayings,
have taken on a soberer aspect.
A certain amount of expenditure
in this line is necessary in order
to sustain health and maintain
productive capacity. It is for
each one of us to say to his conscience that his outlay for such
purposes cannot be further reduced without injury to health
or impairment to energy. If we
cannot say this, there is only one
thing to do-and that is to ap
ply the knife and divert the salvaged funds into the war loans,
As i egards the outlay on provisions and the expenditures on tobacco, beer, whiskey, wine, etc.,
we should have the courage to
apply the same rule. In the cases of the poor and of the people
of moderate means, the high prices have already forced them to
practice the severest economy in
connection with their expenditures for provisions—but the
well-to-do and the rich can, in
some instances, do good service
to their country and mankind
through further regulation of
the kind referred to.
To get good results and to
make healthy or satisfactory recoveries from the expense account, which will be available for
war loan subscriptions, it is necessary to have the hearty co-operation of the female members
of the family. In many households ft is the case that the women are more enthusiastic savers than the men, and far more
ready to cut out the expenditure
on non-essentials; and in the
households where they still spend
money freely for things they
could do without, it is probably
because they do not realize the
grave issues that are at stake,
and the great importance of having every family conserve its
monetary resources.
Self-denial in the matter of
buying new furniture, pianos,
autos, etc., if generally or universally practised, would give
the Finance Minister many additional millions of dollars for
carrying on the war. With respect to automobiles used for
pleasure it is not only the capital expenditure that is lostfto
the national expenditure, but also the cost of operating tr running the cars. For instance, if
a well-to-do citizen enters into
an agreement with his conscience
that owing to the war he will
postpone for two years the pur-
chase of a $2,000 car, perhaps
the loyal observance by .him of
this agreement would set free
$3500 in the two years for war
for war loan purchases. To a
certain extent this applies to
purchases of furniture, etc. In
view of the sacrifices made every
day by the members of our expeditionary forces, it should not
seem hard for "stay-at-homes"
to defer for a year or two the
purchase of new furniture or other items not absolutely necessary. A careful analysis in each
individual case of the several
subdivisions of personal expenditures, if undertaken in the
right spirit by a million. Canadian families, might lead to the.
provision of an extra $100,000,000
in the course of a year for war

shells and the roar of artillery where Canada's
boys are fighting and dying.
—they are waiting for Canada's answer when the
sale of Victory Bonds begins.

What answer will you make?
Shall it be said that Canada
spares not her sons from the sacrifice of battle, yet withholds her
dollars to give them victory?
Rather will it be said that Canada once more, for the fourth
time in three years, cheerfully

for the cause of freedom, righteousness and justice.
Canada's answer must be,
—that the Canadian nand to
the plow of Victory holds steadfast and firm.
—that Canada is in deadly earnest
when she says the "last man and
the last dollar."'"
That is the answer Canada will
give to our boys in the trenches,

Allies everywhere.
That is the answer we will give

Issued by Canada's Victory Loan Committee
in co-operation with the Minister of Finance
of the Dominion of Canada.
The following announcement
has been made from Ottawa:—
The Finance Minister of Canada
has issued a new instruction in
connection with the Victory
Bonds, which will be of much
benefit and importance to many
small investors. He has decided
to grant the privilege of the registration of all bonds, that is to
say, that bonds of all denominations, including the $50 bond,
may be registered as to principal
and as to principal and interest.
In previous loans the privilege
of registration was necessarily
confined to bonds of the larger
denomination, such as $1,000
bonds or more. Bonds of lower
denomination were issued as
bearer bonds, with coupons attached, and while carrying equal benefits as to principal and
interest were liable to being lost
by the owners. Under the privilege now given by the Finance
Minister, the buyer of any bond,
(whatever denomination) may
have it registered, in which case
the interest will be paid by cheque
and the bond, if tost, may be replaced alter proper evidence has
been shown.
It is believed that this privilege will be greatly appreciated
by many thousands of small investors, who will thus be assured
of the absolute safety of their
investment even against fire or
carelessness or any other accidental cause of loss, This improvement in the issue will involve extra work upon the Department of Financs, but Sir
Thomas White considers that its
benefits will more than offset the
labor involved.
To all who voted for or supported Prohibition in the Campaign of 1916, and to all who
have benefitted from the coming
into force of the Prohibition Act.
Through our combined efforts
we won a signal victory. In the
securing of the Prohibition Act
we aided materially in the winning of the war, by thus conserving foodstuffs, men and money.
Let it be understood our activities have never ceased, rather
they have just begun. Patriotically we stand behind every effort
to "Win the War." Many of our
number are overseas and many
more have given their nearest
and dearest to do battle for the
liberties of the world.
Another opportunity presents
itself, whereby we may further
do our bit for the Dominion, and
for the Empire of which we form
a part, namely, by purchasing,
and assisting in the sale of "Victory Bonds." |We therefore urge
upon you the necessity of doing
your utmost at this present juncture, by purchasing bonds to the
limit of your powers, and that
you use your personal influence
to have others do the same. Many have benefitted by the coming into force of the Prohibition
Act, and should be urged to invest their savings in Victory
Prohibitionists have the welfare of the Nation at heart. Let
us do our best that there be no

which you don't wish to purchase right away,
make sure and let us hold it for you.
