'Not too close, please."—Sykes in Philadelphia Evening Ledger.
Petrograd, Aug. 7.—Gen. Kor-
niloff's prompt severity has saved all that was worth saving in
the armies at the front. The
corps first to set the bad example
and lead the general exodus from
the fighting lines was the Corps
d' Elite of Guards, from Petrograd. Their commander, Gen.
Maviesky, was among those who
received Korniloff's order to fire
on deserters, but he failed to
carry out his orders.
Korniloff, in strict accordance
with justice, sent Maviesky before the courtmartial for disobedience of orders, and he was sentenced to be shot. Russian history thus has a new precedent,
for never before has a commandant of a guards corps undergone
such shame.
The oldest guards regiments
which Kerensky ordered to be
disbanded for cowardice, will not
be so treated. It is universally
recognized that their historic
names must live, even though
they have passed through mud,
like the rest of Russia during the
last five months.
The regiments will be reformed out of worthy volunteers from
the fighting armies.
A fighting gene-al here says
that the Russian armies will soon
be as good as ever, under the
same commanders where any of
these still survive the experiences of the last five months.
Considering all things, it is
worth noting how little progress
the Germans are making in their
absolute walkover. The 8th.,
army has extricated itself and,
though still retiring, has none of
the enemy any Ipnger behind it.
Moreover, unless  the Germans
can contrive to increase their
numbers at once and very considerably, their situation is far
from being enviable^ if the Russian armies, say between Kovel
and Brody, are capable of re
sponding to the able leadership
of Gen. Cheremisoff, one of the
Siberian ironsides heroes.
Ottawa, Aug. 8.—The Military
Service Bill successfully passed

A Portion of Canadian Law
This is published for the benefit of the few who think it is not
necessary to assists police officer in the execution of his duty
when called upon: Section 167
of the Criminal Code of Canada
says: "Eve^y one is guilty of
indictable offence and liable to
six months imprisonment who,
having reasonable notice that he
is required to assist any sheriff,
deputy sheriff, mayor or other
head officer, in the execution of
his duty in arresting any person,
or in preserving the peace, without reasonable excuse omits to
do so."
London, Aug. 8.-A dispatch
to Reuter's, Limited, from Amsterdam says it is reported from
a German source that Germany
intends shortly to concentrate
her submarine activity exclusively against Britain.

LIFE'S LITTLE JOLTS.- Oscar Hilt for Cartoons Magazine.
Winnipeg, Aug. 7.—Premier
Norris, of Manitoba was cheered
to the echo when on opening the
convention of western Liberals,
with 1000 persons present, this
morning he referred feelingly to
the critical character of the
times and declared it to be the
earnest wish of every good citizen that the best interests of the
country, regardless of political
bias, should engage the attention of the convention. He was
wildly cheered for several minutes and he continued at some
length in a conciliatory spiiit. .
The platform presented a galaxy of Liberals who were received with vociferous cheers
when they marched through the
crowds into the hall and took
seats on the rostrum. There
was but one British Columbia
man so honored, Premier Brewster. Among the others were
Premiers Sifton and Martin,
Hon. Frank Oliver, Chas Cross,
J. G. Turiff, Hon A. D. Hudson,
attorney-general of Manitoba,
Hon. James Calder, of Regina
and a sprinkling of lesser lights,
Flags of the Empire and a big
American flag decorated the
stage with the tri-color given a
prominent place.
At 10.30 Premier Brewster of
British Columbia announced that
the convention should proceed to
organize. The convention, he
believed, represented the very
broadest Canadianism and he
thought it was fitting that, as
temporary chairman, there
Should be one who had done so
much for western Liberalism,
Hon. T. C. Norris.
Mr. Norris said the convention
was one of representative thought
and men. Only three or four
members of the four western
provincial governments were absent, and it was almost impossible to get any more complete
representation from the provinces.
"There never has been a time
in the history of Canada when
Canada required service of such
a high order as was the case today," Mr. Norris continued.
"The convention was not called
for merely partizan purposes,
and while they represented the
West, there was no prejudice a-
gainst Eastern Canada; they
must have 'Canada at large' at
heart. If they started in with
the idea not to be partizan or
sectional, then they were on the
right basis.
"The House of Commons is
standing still in order to watch
this convention and the whole
of the Dominion was looking to
the West for a lead."
"One of the most important
things I am going to ask this
convention is to create a win-the-
war policy," said Mr. Norris.
"There never has been a time
in the history of Canada when
there was such a demand for
unity. The spirit of win-the-war
is covering all Western Canada.
There will be no difference of
opinion as to that, though there
may be as to the measures to be
taken. I have found nobody
who wants to quit.
"If ever there was a debt that
every Canadian owes, it is the
debt he owes to the. soldier who
has given his life. Let us pass
over sectionalism. Don't let our
party feelings run too wide."
Alex. Henderson made a farewell visit to Cumberland last
week end and left on Tuesday
evening for St. John from where
he will proceed overseas.
After an illness of several
months, Sir Richard McBride
died Monday morning at his
London home in his forty-seventh
year. Lady McBride and his
six daughters were at his bedside.
Although news had occasionly
filtered through from London
that Sir Richard was in ill health,
his many friends in British Columbia did not realize the gravity of his condition until so informed through the news columns of the Victoria Colonist of
Sunday, July 8, when it was
announced, upon the receipt of
cable information from London,
that he was in a critical condition.
From time to time reports have
been forwarded which indicated,
that, while Sir Richard was far
from being in good health, his
condition was improving, several
of the latest bulletins stating
that Sir Richard and his family
contemplated returning to Canada at an early date. The news
of his death, which reached the
province Monday afternoon,
therefore came as a shock to
many of his friends, who had
been hoping to see him again.
Death was due to Grave's de-
It is proposed to bring the
body to British Columbia for
burial, which will be under the
auspices of the Provincial Government.

all the delegates, with the exception of those from Courtenay and
Comox, to allow his name to go
to the Convention as a candidate,
but he was unable to accept. Had
he accepted he would have undoubtedly secured the nomination, as those'desiring him to run
were well in the majority. Mr.
P. P. Harrison is by far the most
prominent and influential Liberal
in the district, and for the last
ten years has done a great deal
to keep the Associations alive.
We think Mr. Harrison acted
wisely in keeping out of the contest as our present member, Mr.
H. S. Clements will undoubtedly
win out in 'the event of an election as he is very popular with
all and he has always served his
Constituency in a manner which
leaves no room for adverse criticism.

Never wear a Corset smaller than two inches less than
your actual waist measure. If you do the corset will not
correspond to your figure. Always insist on getting the
right size. *
Do not wear the same corset continuously,
with another.   Both will wear longer.
When putting on your corsets,
never pull them together at top
and bottom, leave a wide open
space at waist-line. Have an
equal distance from top to bottom in lacing before drawing
loops at waist-line and over hips.
When taking off and putting on your corsets, always
loosen the laces first; by doing this your corsets will
give you better service.
Never bend from the waist-line when stooping;
always bend from the hips. This will avoid
breaking your corset.
Always ask for "La
Diva" and "D. & A."
non - rustable corsets.
They are the most stylish and in every way
the most serviceable
models you can buy.

corsets by visiting the " Big Store," who are sole
agents in the district.
