DATE OF ELECTIONS
SET FOR SEPT. 14
Five More Members Added by
Redistribution; Making Total
of 47 Seats Vacant.
VICTORIA, B. O, July 5.-
The writs for the forthcoming
general election will be issued today. The proclamation dissolving
the last Parliament fixed July 5
as the date upon which the writs
should issue, and at a meeting of
the Execuitive Council, to be held
this morning, the date of the
nominations and elections will be
decided upon.
Just what will be the date of
the elections is not as yet certain.
Under the amendment to the
Elections Act passed at the last
session of the Legislature, the
period between nomination day
and election day was extended
from two weeks to six weeks, the
extension being made in order
that adequate time for the taking
of the soldiers' vote in England
and at the front might be had.
It will take probably ten days
•.for the writs to reach the most
outlying constituencies, so that
the earliest date on which an
election can be conveniently held
will be the end of August or the
first week in September. It is
likely that the date v. ill be Thurs-
- day, August 31, or a week later,
on Thursday, September 7.
The taking of the soldiers' vote
has occasioned some difficulties.
The desiie of the Government is
to so arrange matters that the
men from British Columbia now
serving at the front, or in camp
in England, may have full oppot\
tunity to express themselves upon
the numerous very important
issues which will be before the
electors at the forthcoming election. This desire was communicated to Sir Richard McBride,
Agent-General for the Province
at London; and by him presented
to the War Office. Information
from Sir Richard indicates that
the WarOffice does not feel disposed to permit the taking of the
vote at the actual front, this attitude being based upon military
reasons, but as regards the men
stationed in England, the'War
Office has not given a decided
answer. It is expected by Premier Bowser that further information will be received immediately,
which will be more decisive. The
elimination of the soldiers' vote,
so far as the men on service -in
England or at the front is concerned, would permit of the earlier date for election.
All the necessary clerical work
in connection with the approaching election has been completed
in the office of the Provincial
Secretary, the various deputy-returning officers have been named,
and everything is in readiness
for the voting. All that remains
is to fix the dates of nomination
and election.
VICTORIA, B. C, July 6.-
Nominations on Thursday,
August 3, and the Provincial
elections on Thursday, September
14, were decided upon yesterday
at a meeting of the cabinet and
the writs were ordered issued fixing those dates.
With thedefinite announcement
of the election date matters political throughout the Province
will be speeded up. Throughout
the Province both parties have
been busy of late preparing for
the contest. In many constituencies candidates have already
been named while in others the
party conventions will shortly be
held forthe purpose of choosing
the standard bearers.
This election there will be fortj ■
seven seats to be filled, an in
crease of five members over the
number elected for the last Pari-
iament. These new seats resulted from the redistribution which
increased the number of constituencies by four. The new constituencies are Omineca, which
was taken from the old riding of
Skeena; Fort George,, which is a
part of the old riding of Cariboo,
and North and South Vancouver,
comprising territory formerly
within the limits of the constituency of Richmond. There have
been other changes in the limits
of existing ridings whereby some
small portions have been taken
away from one and added to another. The only change on Vancouver Island made by the redistribution has been the taking of
a portion of the Alberni riding
and placing it in Comox.
At the forthcoming election,
Vancouver will have six members
instead of'five as hitherto. The
other.four new members will represent the constituencies of North
and South Vancouver, Fort George
and Omineca. Cariboo district,
which formerly returned two
members, will be represented in
the next pailiament by one, the
Fort George district having the
other.

BRITISH AND FRENCH CON-   IMPROVED CONDITIONS
SOLIDATE THEIR GAINS ] INSPIRE CONFIDENCE
London, July 4. Another titan-
tic smash by the big guns of the
British and French against the
German lines through Bapaume.
Peronne and St. Quentin is in
preparation to-day, according tc
the latest news from the front
in Northern France. Heavy
fighting by both British and
French is reported, especially
north of Fricourt and at the junction of the British and French
fronts just north of the Somme.
Tne principal efforts of the Allies
are being devoted not to penetrating farther into thc German
lines but to consolidating the
gains so far made and to preparing the way by artillery fire for
another drive.
Great confidence is expressed
in London that the fall of Peronne is near. The French have
pressed forward until their advance forces are within three
miles of the important railway
centre and when the big guns
are emplaced and open again it
is felt there will be no difficulty
in hammering Peronne so that
its defense by the Germans will
be impossible.
MECHANICS WANTED
FOR OVERSEAS SERVICE
Recruits are urgently required
for the Canadian Engineers.
Men enlisting will be sent East
without delay. There are excellent opportunities for skilled
workmen, and men accustomed
to handling horses in the 6th
Field Company Canadian Engineers. Drafts leave Vancouver
for Overseas Service every two
weeks. All professions and
trades are eligible for the Canadian Engineers. The requirements are as follows:—Height 5
feet 4 inches; heart and lungs,
must be sound; hearing good;
speech without impediment; eyesight, to be able to read letters
at a distance 20 feet with both
eyes, or better still, with each
eye. Rupture, malformation of
joints of limbs, toes, feet and
hands, squint or any morbid con
dilions of the eyes or lids will
disqualify. If confident that you
can pass the above examination
apply to the nearest Army Doctor.
Transportation will be forwarded
to Vancouver.
There is a decided improvement
during the past three months in
the work at the local nvmfs In
jaod around the city. With the
j month of April the work began
; to improve. The month of May
showed a further improvement
and during the month of June
some of lhe local mines worked
24 days and others il days,
This is a great improvement over
the conditions of affairs as they
were in June 1915 and today there
is a better feeling in Cumberland
and vicinity with signs of a
steady improvement for the future. Already several of the
miners and their families who
left Cumberland a year or two
ago in search of steady work
when the local mines were working only five and six days a
month have intimated their intention of returning to Cumberland.
Even now we see several familiar
faces on the streets that were
absent during the past twelve
months, it is expected the Dominion Government will in the
near future while in search of-
revenue and with the object of
giving tho local coal industry the
protection it demands impose an
additional import duty on fuel oil
when we may expect a further
improvement in the local mines
of our district with the mines
working full swing. As a city
and district we are prosperous.

Preservation of Wood.
From the standpoint of the average consumer, more has been
expected of wood and less done
to help it serve a great variety of
uses than almost any other building material. It is a comparatively modern conception that
proper preservative treatment is
practical and economical on the
farm and around the home.
Good paint is a good friend of
lumber, and, while not usually
considered in that light, is tht one
protection against the ratural pro
gress of decay which has been
universally used. Yet the well
painted house has unprotected
floor beams in moist walls, door
steps on wet ground, and many
inside surfaces and timbers which
are continually exposed to conditions favorable to decay. The
wonderful service which wood
has given during all the years,
with little or no consideration of
the factors which destioy, brings
into greater prominence the possibilities of preservative treatment
under the present day desire for
permanence and elimination of
waste. No one expecls unprotected steel to do anything but
rust, concrete is waterproofed
and its surface protected from
abrasion and disintegration, fabrics are shielded from the elements, while wood has largely
been left to shift for itself. The
application of wood preserving
methods to the every day uses of
lumber, where it needs protection from decay, is in keeping
with modern ideas.—Sterling.

or eight times, and then goes
around to appropriate what copies he can. The kind hearted
man goes around to the office and
pays what he owes. The successful business man who advertises
regularly and makes money by it,
immediately starts out to find
the editor and the two walk silently down the street and the
business man takes sugar in his
and they both eat a clove or two
and life is sweeter and peace settles down on their hearts for
moments. Such is the experience
of a mustard seed that falls on
different ground.
At the last annual meeting of
the Commission of Conservation
especial stress was laid upon the
increasing prevalence of weeds.
Earnest pleas were made for
action to overcome this detriment
to agriculture.
While farming interests are
exerting themselves to eliminate
this serious handicap, they have
just cause to complain of the
prevalence of weeds on city lots
and subdivided land upon the
outskirts of cities and towns.
This land, once forming some of
the Pest farms, offers ideal conditions for the growth of weeds,
and they flourish in great luxri-
ance. The owners in many cases
are non-residents, and consequently, dn not appreciate the condition of their property.
Municipal officers and road-
masters should be given the authority, and be compelled, to
have weeds cut upon vacant property, the cost of doing the work
to become a legal charge against
the land. The majority of owners
would be willing to pay the cost
of weed cutting, and would appreciate the service. It is hoped
that action will be taken, so that
vacant urban property may no
longer be regarded as a dangerous weed menace.
Kvery man is a part of his
town. The town embraces the
fortunes, and in some measures
at least takes on the character
of the man. So loyalty to one's
town is no more than loyalty to
one's self; and this loyalty is in
the line of all well shaped human nature. Therefore it is right
to say that the man who does
not stand up for his town is in
some way dwarfed. There is
something wrong about him. His
fellows will pass this judgment
upon him, and the chances are
that while he may add to the
discomfort of others he will not
escape making himself unhappy.
It is more fun to see a man
read a puff on himself in a newspaper than to see a fat man slip
on a banana peel, The narrow
minded man reads it over seven
Many a young woman who deserves a good man for a life companion, has jumped in at a tender age and married a Johnny,
and gone through life embarass-
ed the rest of her days. Johnny
is all right as an ice cream boy
and as a slot machine with which
to get chewing gum and bon bons
but when it comes to measuring
up in after years with the men
who do things, and whose wives
make up the budget of satisfied
ones, he is down and out before
the race starts, Girls, if you
must marry, and you must, if
you would be happy, be sure and
marry a man, or at least what is
going to be a man.

Slight  Misunderstanding
Drowsily the hotel manager turned
In hla bed.
Whlrr-r, whlrr-r rang the telephone.
Muttering Bomething very low, he
reached out for the receiver.
"Send someone up to Room 77 tt
once," came the voice ot old Mrs.
Moneybags.
"I trust you are not Ul, madam?"
he Inquired.
"I soon shall be If something Is not
done!" replied the old lady, In excited tones.
Hurriedly dressing, the manager
went to Room 77.
"Now, listen I" said the old lady,
In wrathful key. "What la that noise
overhead. It has been going on for the
last two hours, and has nearly drlv-n
n'    mad."
"I cannot understand It, madam,"
answered the manager, listening
curiously, to the humps and bangs
overhead. "The gentleman ln that
room la III."
Quickly he ran liprtalra, and Inquired the cause of tho disturbance.
The -coupler of the room was a
Frenchman.
"It ees the medicine, m'slor,' he
explained, on being questioned. "The
doc'or did say. 'Take two nights running, then skip a night.' M'Bleur,
pardon, but I was doing the skip!"
Tommy—Pop, what does it mean
to say of a man that he bullded better than he knew?
Tommy's Pop—It merely means,
son, that he isn't a government con*
tractor.

"What are you doing, dear?" a
mother aald to her little four-year-old
daughter.
"I'm writing a letter to Alice," the
youngster replied.
"But, dear," aald the mother, "you
don't know how to write."
The little girl, however, as she calmly continued her pencil scrawl, answered:
"Well, mother, Alice doesn't know
how to read."

, "No, it's not JubI what I wanted,"
aald the matron, as sho tried on ilia
latest and most  surprising  thing la
headgear.
"But, madam," quickly Bald the
sales girl, as she stepped hack admiringly, "lt suits you to perfection!"
"Do you think so? But isn't It too
wide? No one Is wearing wide hats
Just now."
"That's quite so, madam," came tho
answer. "A wide hat can only bo
worn by a lady with a perfectly-
moulded nose, and that is why Ihe small
hats have caught on so. ln your caso,
however, If I may say so, ln justlco
to'your eyes and noBe, you shoull
always wear a wide hat."
'TYes, but it'll look so different from
everybody else."
"It certainly wlll, madam, and distinguished, too! Not one In a hundred could wear this hat to perfection.
But your uncommon type of faco
exactly suits It."
"Yas; perhaps you're right. I
think tl'll have It,"

Tbereshad been a heavy downfall
of rain, .>and the railway district
superintendent telegraphed along different ..sections of the line as follows:
"Send full particulars of the flood."
An agent on a particular section ot
the line: where no flooding had taken
place wns greatly puzzled by thi3
messejge,. and, thinking it a Joke, bs
wired back aa follows:
"Looktln the Book of Genesis,"
Blobbs—Ouizler always goes to extremes.
Slobbs—Yes, he even regards a high

Golf Wisdom /
An  Sandy  holed  out  on   the  first  /
green his friend from over the Bop
der asked:
"And how msny Btrokcs did you
take?"
"Eight," replied  the Scot.
"Ah," said the Englishman, "I took
seven;   bo that's my hole."
The Scotsman ventured no reply;
but when on tho second green tho
Englishman repealed his former
question, and made Inquiry as to the
number of strokes taken hy Ills opponent, the latter nodded Ills head,
and, wjth an expression of Infinite
wisdom on his fane, gently murmured:
"Nay, nay, my mnnnle; this time
It's my tUr'rn to ask lirst,"
Like  a  Philosopher
"John, John." exclaimed Mrs. Jones,
is she rushed Into hor husband's
library In a state of great agitation
snd excitement, "cook actually poured
gasoline on the kitchen fire to mako
It burn up!"
'And didn't It explode?"
"Yes—I should think It did! It
nearly blow thc silly woman through
the window!"
"Oh, well," mused the husband, "it
wouldn't really have mattered if It
had blown her quite through, would
It? This ls her afternoon out anyway,
I believe."
