"THK MUNITION WORKEKS' ANSWER    Crushing death
uuder his own shells."—By Louis Raemaekers in London Mail.
NOT NOW IN A HURRY.
Victoria, 13. C, Sept., 7.-
While Tuesday was the first business day for the courts after the
termination of the legal holidays,
there was no aign of Mr. Brewster's solicitor, Mr. II. C. Hall,
making application for thefixing
of the date for the argument upon the motion for judgment in
tr.e action of tho Liberal leader
against Attorney-General Bowser in the suit arising out of the
former's now famous writ to have
declared invalid the government's
loan of $6,000,000 to the P. G. E.
Railway. Incidentally tho logical outcome of Mr. Brewster's
action, should it prove successful
would be the complete tying up
of the business of the Province,
as the point raised, the legality
or otherwise, of ii at legislation,
affects all legislation passed at
the last session.
When the case was argued
during vacation before Mr. Justice Morrison the Court held that
it was no vacation matter. Hence
it was expected that when the
vacation ended the Liberal leader's legal advisor, also a candidate for election under the provisions of an act which he, like
his leader, claims is illegal,
would have been present at the
first opportunity to press the
suit. No sign of him, however,
was in evidence, despite the fact
that Strong argument was advanced against the delay of the
hearing when the case, was before theCourtduring vacation.

Helping to Man British Fleet
Toronto, Sept. 6.—Hon. J. D.
Hazen, Minister of Marine and
Fisheries, tonight made an announcement regarding Canada's
prospective naval contribution to
the lighting strength of the British fleet.
Spoakingat the Royal Canadian
Yacht Club, whore ho was a
guest at dinner, he stated that
the Government of Canada made
the proposal to the British Gov-
ei nment that Canada bear the
expense of men to go forward to
serve in the British navy, paying
them the same rates as are paid
in the Canadian navy and to men
in expeditionary forces. This
was accepted by the Lords of the
Admiralty and the British Government, and in a few days he
hoped the details of the scheme
would be made public. When
the appeal for recruits came he
knew that the members of the
Royal Canadian Yacht Club would
help by personal influence, so
that before the year ended Canada would send over several
thousand men who perhaps
would not enlist in the overseas
land forces, but who, when they
got on board ships of the British
navy, would, he believed, ba able
to join in what the overseas expeditionary force had done in
making the name and fame of
Canada greater throughout the
world than before.
Hon. Mr. Hazen furnished
striking figures regarding the
successful transportation of munitions and goods, He staled that
beginning in April, 1915, and
ending March, 1916, there were
sent acioss the seas for the assistance of the British soldiers
073,805 tons of Canadian products through Canadian ports.

If I can only get this one in the other will follow easily.
Campbell, arrived here this morning from their trip up North.
The latter in an interview with
the Editor of the Islander, states
that they had a splendid reception
where ever they went. At the
various places where they held
meetings, resolutions of confidence were passed supporting
Mr. Manson and the Conservative
Party. In places when the Liberals claimed to have everything
solid, and dared the Conservative
candidate to go to, they received
the best welcome and heartiest
support. In Hardy Bay a ban-
cpiet where thirty people sat
down was given in Mi. Manson's
honor.
Mr. Manson's welcome and the
appreciation shown by the north
was a revelation to Mr. Campbell, who is confident that Mr.
Manson will receive a majority
in almost every polling station.
The Liberals made no impression
in the northern stronghold.
When Mr. Manson reached Campbell river he was surprised to
hear that a story was in circulation in Courtenay that at Powell
River he was refused a hearing
and that a.letter was being tooted
around supposed to come from
the Road Superintendent over
there to that effect. This is a
detestable falsehood, as Mr, Man-
son and Mr. Campbell have never been to Powell River and such
a letter was never written by the
party in question. It is the opinion of Mr. Campbell that the
Socialists will poll a bigger vote
in the North than Mr. Stewart.
The opposition, what little there
was, came from the Socialists.
At Campbell River a Liberal
wanted and insisted on getting a
half hour on the platform, which
was given. After five and a half
minutes he exhausted himself
and quit cold, The Liberal candidate had the misfortune to run
his boat on the rocks. In spite
of his criticism of Mr. Manson's
using the Government car for
campaign purposes, the Liberal
candidate did not live up to his
principles, as he availed himself
of an invitation from Mr. Clements to ride in the old Dominion
Government boat from Lund to
Powell River for campaign purposes, "Inconsistency, thy name
is Liberal."
Mr, Manson expects to be at
Union Bay tonight, Powell River
Monday, Courtenay Tuesday,

and produced thc payroll of the
Company for June and July, also
a box containing the certificates
of the miners employed in the
Comox nines. He explained the
number of men employed and the
mines in operation and the method of dealing with coal miners'
certificates. He was willing to
place before the Board all records
possible for their information and
answered innumerable questions
concerning the working of the
Comox mines.
The chairman then called upon
any one present who wished to
give evidence, but no one came
forward. The only one present
with the exception of those connected with the Board of Inquiry
was John McAllister, secretary
of the U.M.W. of A., and he had
nothing to say.
Thus ended the first session of
thc Board of Investigation into
the alleged improper holding and
using of miners' certificates in
the Comox collieries.
P. Dunne, a tailor, was on the
stand, but he gave evidence on
everything but a coal miner's
certificate. At the close of the
investigation Mr. Bullock Webster and the chairman thanked
the officials and the management
of the Canadian Collieries for
their able assistance in the investigation, which resulted in one
coal miner's certificate being sent
to the department of mines foi
cancellation.
Affiliate with Dominion Guides.
Washington, Sept. 7.—The Allies are discussing among them
selves more drastic peace terms
than ever before hinted. Here
are. some of the demands likely
to be made on Germany.
Ceding to England of Heligoland. Neutralization of the Kiel
Canal. Demolition of some of
the strongest fortifications on
the German border. This list of
demands was obtained from an
official in close touch with Allied
sentiment both in this country
and abroad. The fact that they
believe the military situation is
constantly improving, from the
viewpoint of the Allies, is responsible, this official said, for the
Allies allowing something to be
known regarding conditions under which they will consent to
make peace. There are many officials among the allied nations
whose desire to see Germany
"absolutely crushed" leads them
to propose even  harsher terms
A meeting of the ofTieeis and

It was reguarly moved and s c-
onded that the secretary apply
to the 'Dominion Council, Girl
Guides, for an instructor's warrant for Mr. Taylor.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th. 1916
The third year of the war is
opening well for the Allies, and
therefore well for Canada. In
every part of the Dominion men
are still coming forward to swell
the ranks of the great army
which has done so well for the
Empire and has brought such
glory to Canada. The burden of
war is inci easing as added thousands are placed in the field, and
the cost has risen to a very high
figure, but there is not now and
never was the slightest thought
of doing less than the utmost in
the country's power. The promise made by Sir Robert Borden in
the first weeks of the war that
Canada would fight to the full
limit of her resources in men
and money, is still the determination of Canadians. The war is
still, and will continue to be, the
first business of tin country.
If the first was a dark year and
the second, at best, a year of uncertainties and doubts, the third
gives promise of being in every
sense the Allies' year, the year
which will see the power of the
central nations finally and com-
plelcty ' iken. When tint is
aCQpmpli hed the Canadian people will lie heller aiile ;■. .-''-'■e-'irel
tlie part that is beii laj d by
Canada now and the extent to
which the army of the Dominion
bas contributed to the crushing
of the Huns. Canadian troops
have triumphed at a heavy eost |
in the fighting so far, but they,
have triumphed.
Canada has today three full;
army divisions fighting magnificently at the front and holding
against all attacks one of the
most important and difficult links
in thc chain of steel stretched by
the Allied Armies across the German path; a fourth division in
England ready and eager to take
its piece in the trenches; troops
on garrison duty at important
outposts of the Empire in Bermuda and St. Lucia; and in the
training camps of Canada the
making of many more divisions.
Three hundred and fifty thousand
Canadians are now under arms,
ami th
sight.

warfare imposed by Germany.
The first German gas attacks
were made against the Canadians
in the famous rush of the Huns
towards Calais fourteen months
ago, and the Canadians held their
ground, threw back the German
wave, and, in the brief but historic official statement of Sir John
French, "saved tho day" for the
Allies. That was the work of the
veteran first division. The later
divisions have since had their

Many false statements were made by
Mr. W. D. Bayley, a so-called Labor Leader of Winnipeg, during his recent tour of
the Province in behalf of the People's Prohibition Party. A denial was not entered
to these statements a* the lime because
it was thought desirable to nail these
falsehoods in such a convincing manner,
as to show the workingman of British
Columbia in a conclusive manner that the
campaign oratory and literature of Mr.
Bayley was not trustworthy. This evidence is now at band, and should be read
by every workingman of British Columbia. It outlines in a convincing manner
the lengths of which Prohibition orators
and writers hive gone in an effort to
swing the workingmen's vote of British
Columbia in favor of the Prohibition Act.
The campaign of falsehood and misleading statements which has been carried
on among the workingmen of British
Columbia by the Prohibitionists can only
be excused by the fact that they realize
that the condemnation of the Ii. C. Prohibition Act by such strong labor organizations as the Trades and Labor Councils
of Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster and Prince Rupert outlines a position
which it is difficult to attack by fair
methods.
One of Mr. Bayley's statements, made
from the platform while on the Coast, and
now framed in literature which is being
circulated by Prohibitions, is to the effect
that he personally offered to help the a-
gent of the Bartender's Union in Winnipeg to find employment after Manitoba
went dry. He was told that the bartenders were all fixed, and that the agent of
the Union had gone back to his old job
with the Bartenders' Union. The bartenders were the only trade that were
really affected by the Prohibition Act, and
all of them had gone to work at other
trades.
A copy of this statement and the Prohibition campaign literature was sent to
Mr. F. W. McGill, Business Agent for the
Bartenders' Union at Winnipeg. Immediately upon this receipt Mr. McGill sent
a reply which brands the statement as
absolutely false. In direct denial of Mr,
Bayley's statement his letter reads as
follows;—
"I am only too pleased to get at one of
them fakers wbo are all the time trying
to exploit the labor man when they
thinkthQy can get away with it. The
statement of Mr. Bayley that he offered
to assist me in getting a job is untrue, as
is his statement that 1 am working for
thc Barber' Union. I have not worked
since I lost my position as Business Agent
of the Bartenders' Union, June 1st. In
regards to the bartenders of Winnipeg all
gelling jobs, there are fourteen working
that were working when the Manitoba
Temperance Act came into effect, June
1st. The balance of two hundred aud
eighty-two being placed out ol employment."
With reference to this attitude of Manitoba Prohibitionists toward men employed in the liquor trade. Mr. McGill
says that dining the Prohibition campaign the Social Service Council laid greal
stress on the handsome manner in which
they would provide employment for this
class of labor, should the workingman
support the Prohibition Act. After the
Prohibition Act passed, however, tlie
members of the Council evidently forgot
all about their promise, for they have
done absolutely nothing to assist these
men in securing work, The situation
With reference to these men Mr. McGill
describes as deplorable. Over live hundred clerks were thrown out ol work
wheu the Manitoba liquor stores were
closed, and wilh all these men looking
for employment, the position oi the bartender was such as placed hun at a decided disadvantage,
With reference to Mr. Bayley's statement that he was a Labor Candidate for
tlie Manitoba Legislature, Mr. McGill
says that he was the only person that
recognized himself as a Labor Candidate.
There were three Trade Unionists cm
his committee, but when he placed Prohibition in his platform they told him
they could not serve. As a result he
slipped the Prohibition plank off his platform and never mentioned the subjeel
during his campaign.
Mr. McGHl's letter contains other crit
Ecismsof Mr. Bayley's statements as made
on the Coast, these being of the same
character as the above denial. In view
of the above direct statement, il would be
v.ell for the workingmen of British Columbia to weigh Mr, Bayley's campaign
Oratory and literature in behalf of the B,'
C. Prohibition Act al its true value.
LONDON, Aug. ;0. Engll ih investors are
greatly di. turb. I be :au .■ of the proposed
B. C. Prohibition Act.   Millions of dollars
of British capital is invested in British
j Columbia breweries, hotels, etc.   Should
the 1'rollib:tion Act be approved, and no
I con pensation be given, the result would
be i isastrous as far as investment of Old
[Country money in British Columbia is
. concerned. Prominent financial firms
, here are now considering the matter, aud
litis certain that shouid the Prohibition
Acl pass in its present form it will lead
I these firms io advise their clients to avoid
making investments in British Columbia
in the future.
SEATTLE, Aug.30The increased cost of
maintaining a police force sufficient to
meet the demands entailed by Prohibition
laws was shown at Seattle this week. Although the civic year does not close until
November,tlu heavy expenses of maintaining the "dry" squad have exhausted
the estimates, The City Council was
compelled to vote an emergency appropriation of $1500 to meet immediate demands.
TORONTO, Aug 31. TheOntario Prohibition regulations will not demand that
liquor must be first exported from the
province aud then returned to fill orders
of Ontario citizens. Breweries and distilleries may deliver direct. This means
that they will hold all their Ontario trade
through individual orders as well as
handle the large trade of importing
liquor inlo Manitoba. This latter business is growing rapidly, special express
COTS of liquor being sent from Kenora to
Winnipeg every evening.
SEATTLE, Aug. In an address to the
Epworth League and Baptist Young People's Union, Mayor Hiram Gill stated lhat
many of the supposedly "good people",
among them a number who were regarded as prominent citizens, had gone into
the "bootlegging" business. The profits
which resulted from Ihe illicit sale of
liquor appeared lo be so great that they
could not withstand the temptation.
TORONTO, Aug. 30. Prohibitionists in
this city have received a decided setback
as all the local candidates for the Ontario
Legislature are "anti-prohibitionists".
Even the government candidate is an a-
vowed "anti". This means that no matter who is elected, the attitude of the
government which assented to the Ontario Prohibition legislation will be weakened.
SEATTLE,Aug.30. Startling evidence as
to the manner in which druggists hnve
been selling liquor since the Washington
Prohibition Act went into effect is given
in the address of C. Osseward, a Seattle
druggist, at a pharmaceutical gathering
He staled lhat on druggists'permits there
had been brought into Seattle 42,601 gallons of whisky or over a pint for every
man, woman nnd child in Seattle. Other
liquor was handled by duggists,- al the rate
per head of population as follows:—
Brandy, one-half ounce; gin, one-third
ounce; wine, one and one-half ounces;
and beer, one bottle for every two and a
half persons. This report covered Seattle only, not taking into account liquor
purchased by druggists at other points in
Washington.

PROHIBITION BILL
BLST MEASURE YET
WHEN IS A MAN DRUNK?
To Tho Editor:—
How 1 wish that everyone
could read an article under the
above heading in the American
Magazine for April. As that is
improbable, I will try and con-
dense it for your readers.
Scientific experts say that one
little drink will set you back seven per cenl. iii physical eiulur
anee and fifteen per cent in your
ability to remember things.
This is no temperance lecture.
It is the findings of cold scientific accuracy and shows the moderate drinker that he does not
need to make a fool of Himself to
get drunk. One glass of beer
will make him drunk in the sense
that he will be that much less of
a man than he was before in
body and brain. We all want
life and want it more abundantly
but science shows us that alcohol
in any form and even in small
quantities lessens our life, our
vitality and our efficiency.
One of the first things the scientists found out when they
commenced to measure drunkenness was that every man who
drank alcoholic liquors was drunk
-in degree- for two or three
days afterwards. Now it may
be too much to ask the moderate
drinker to believe that. He
thinks he has increased his vitality, instead of lessening it,
but there is no getting over the
ergograph or the hundreds of
memory tests. The ergograph
is a little instrument that tests
muscular strength and endurance, first without alcohol for
several days, an.', then with a
glass of wine after meals for several days. These experiments
were duplicated hundreds of
times.
It would require too much
space to describe the other tests
and the machines used to secure
accuracy. The results prove
that a man cannot write as fast
or as accurately after one drink,
and the strange part of it is that
bethinks he is writing more rapidly. That has fooled many a
man.
The memory tests were interesting and instructive, These
were carried on for two weeks
without alcohol and then for two
weeks with alcohol, and the results showed, first, that memory
power was weakened fifteen per
cent; second, that when alcohol
was taken before breakfast, it
required four times as long to
m( morize a given task.
Dr. Ridge, an English physiologist, carried out a series of experiments on medical students,
muses and porters, to ascertain
the effect of liquor on eyesight,
with the startling result that the
average man who had taken the
equivalent of a pint of beer had
to approach twenty feet nearer
to read letters that he had read
at thirty feet the day before,
and that the effect lasted from
four to live hours after drinking.
When we consider how much
depends in this awful war upon
the vigor of body and clearness
of brain of our soldiers, and
when we think that they are
not only permitted but are actually templed lo drink, that a
few men may make money, it
shows us that a large number of
people are still ignorant of the
true nature of this terrible poison. H. AllNOTT,
