LIBERALS SWEEP PROVINCE
Prohibition and Women's Suffrage Referendum Carried by Large Majority
Throughout the Province.
Vancouver, Sept. 14.—Latest
returns from all districts show
the Liberals have swept the province, having elected 33 members
to 14 for the Conservatives.
Every Cabinet Minister went
down to defeat in the landslide,
Vancouver electing the solid six
Liberals and Victoria give the
four Liberal candidates good
majorities.
The situation at the present
time is as follows:—
The following seats returned
Liberals: Cariboo, Columbia, Comox, Cranbrook, Dewdney, Esquimalt, Fernie. Grand Forks,
the Islands, North Vancouver,
New Westminster, Nanaimo,
North Okanagan, Omineca,
Prince Rupert, Revelstoke, Richmond, Rossland, Saanich, South
Vancouver, Victoria [four seats]
Vancouver, [six seats] and Yale.
The following returned Conservatives: Cowichan, Kaslo, Nelson, South Okanagan, Similka-
meen and Trail.
The doubtful seats are: Alberni
Atlin, Chilliwack, Delta, Fort
George, Greenwood, Kamloops,
Lillooet and Slocan.
In Newcastle Mr. Parker Williams (S) was returned by a
handsome majority.
Premier Bowser and all the
other cabinet ministers were defeated, although a possibility still
exists that Hon. W. R. Ross may
be elected as the Socialist candidate in Fort George has only a
lead of 19 with several polls to
be heard from.
The Prohibition and Women's
Suffrage referenda were carried
throughout the Province, although the majorities are not
yet known. It was estimated
at an early hour this morning
that Prohibition might have a
majority throughout the Province of 6000. That given' woman's suffrage is much larger,
tho sentiment of the people being strongly in favor of this reform.
Of the Vancouver Island seats
Nanaimo gave a large majority
to the Liberal candidate, Mr.
Wm. Sloan polling 1,012 votes,
Mr. A. E. Planta, (C), 500, and
Mr. H. Skinner, (S), 227. Cowichan returned Capt, W. N. Hayward (I. C), by a majority of 50
with Clo-oose still to be heard
from. Esquimalt returned Mr.
A. W. McCurdy, L., with the
slim majority of 20 over Mr. R.
H. Pooley,  C.   In Saanich Mr.
F. A. Pauline had a substantial
majority over the Hon, U. M.
Eberts.
One of the most interesting
contests of the election was that
in Alberni, where the result was
in doubt up to an early hour this
morning. In The Islands Major
W. W, Foster was defeated by
Mr. M. B. Jackson, the vote being 317 to 284, with North Pender Island still to be heard from.
Today's official counts iii the
various outstanding polls that
have still to be heard from may
effect the standing of parties,
but the Libei als will have a heavy majority in the House.

far as they are known follows:
Alberni-Wood, C, leads with
183, Neill, I., 165; Brewster, L,
150, Thirteen out of 19 polling
stations to hear from, principally
small West Coast points, The
record is still uncertain.

with 110, to Fraser, C, 56. Yorston probably elected.
Chilliwack-Macken, C, leading by small majority.

by good majority and is probebly

from Kent, England, and an experienced butcher, has been appointed manager of the Comox
Co-operative Meat Market in
this city. Mr. Blunden takes
charge with a good stock of
fresh beef, mutton, veal, i n I pork

Paris, Sept. 13-North of the
Somme the French enlarged their
positions opposite Combles and
stormed new trenches south of
Le Priez farm, says the statement issued tonight. The Germans recaptured a farm in L'Abe
Wood and part of Hill 76, but
these were retaken by the French
who maintained all their gains
on the centre and right. Total
captures of yesterday and today
Were 2,300 prisoners, ten guns
and forty machine guns.
The communication reads:
"North of the Somme we appreciably extended our positions
on a portion of our front facing
Combles, and took by assault,
south of Le Priez farm, a complete and strongly organized
trench system.
"Desperate fighting occurred
during the day on our centre and
right wing, where the Germans
made energetic efforts to recapture lost ground. One violent
enemy attack, in which two regiments participated, against
L'Abbe Wood farm, succeeded
at first, but the irresistible return to the offensive of our troops
threw the enemy back from his
position, which we now occupy
completely.
"Hill 76, on the south, was also the objective of enemy attacks, but after a series of hand-
to-hand encounters with fluctuating fortunes our infantry maintained all its gains.
"The number of unwounded
prisoners captured yesterday and
today exceeds at the present
time 2,300. Important booty
abandoned by the enemy and
counted up to the present time
amounts tb ten guns, including
several heavy pieces, and about
40 machine guns, in the Boucha-
vssnes sector alone.
"South of the Somme artillery
fighting continued actively in th'e
region of Vennandevillers and
Chaulnes.
"On the right bank of the
Meuse, after intense artillery fire
the Germans attacked the positions we recently carried east of
Fleury. They were completely
repulsed, leaving seventy prisoners in our hands.
"On the rest of the front there
is nothing to report."
The following official report
was issued this afternoon:
"North of the Somme the fighting continued last evening with
distinct success for our arms.
The village of Bouchavesnes was
attacked toward 8 o'clock in the
evening and carried in its entirety by our troops in a brilliant
fight, despite the enemy's resistance. He had strongly entrenched himself. During the
night our infantry organized itself in the conquered position.
The Germans did not attempt a
counter attack.
"This morning our troops,
continuing their advance eastward, took by assault the Bois
I'Abbe farm, situated 600 metres
east of the Bapaume road, south
east of Bouchavesnes. We took
some additional prisoners and
captured a large amount of material.
"North of the Aisne an attack
directed against a German trench
in the region of Andechy gained
us additional prisoners.
"On the right bank of the
Meuse (Verdun front) we made
some progress in the northern
portion of the Vaux-Chapitre
wood. Artillery fighting continues with moderate activity in
the Fleury-Chenois region.
"Everywhere else the night
was calm."
The advance of the French
forces to Rancourt, about a mile
north of Bouchavesnes, takes
the French line to a point almost
due east of Combles, and British
forces, having captured Ginchy,
are now northwest of Combles,
so that town, which has been a
German stronghold, is subject to
attack from three sides, the German line in front of it extending
into the Anglo-t rench line in the
form of a salient. It is expected
that the Germans will find it impossible lo hold out in Combles
for long.
London, Sept. 13.—The following official statement was issued
tonight:
"The general situation continues unchanged. An attack made
last night on our lines from the
direction of the Mouquet farm
was stopped by our fire and the
enemy driven back to his trenches with considerable loss. The
enemy artillery activity is normal."
Berlin, Sept. 13—The capture
by French troops of Bouchavesnes, north of the Somme, ft reported in an announcement issued by the War Office today,
the text of which is as follows:
"Front of Field Marshall
Prince Ruprecht—The battle
north of the Somme has recommenced. Our troops are engaged
in heavy fighting between Combles and the Somme. French
troops entered Bouchavesnes.
Artillery duels of great violence
continue on both sides of the
Somme.
"Front of the German Crown j
Prince - East of the Meuse (Verdun front) attacks made by the
French troops in the sector of
Thiamont and Souville failed,
causing them sanguinary losses."

Talk to the world about your
business—the line of goods you
carry; their style, peculiarities
and adaptabilities. In purchasing, do so with care, remember
that goods well bought are half
sold. Make careful selections,
buy cheap, and make the selling
price reasonable. Tell the people
what you will do, and do as you
advertise, every time. Send out
your messages every week. The
people look for it and are disappointed if they see it.not; and it
is often the case after your long
silence, the constant appeals of
others have caught the eye and
drawn thitherward many a good
customer you once had, who is
now a patron of him who neglected not to tell where to go to
get what he wanted, at reasonable rates. This is as it will be,
and as it should be, in this busy
age. People take and read the
paper for a purpose, and one is
to find out where they can get
what they want without spending a day hunting over town to
find it. The merchant who apprises them of this fact, in a
judicious way, will be the one
that catches the trade, builds up
a lucrative business, and makes
his calling a success.

One of the trials of a  wide a-
wake, progressive town is civic
it is a good trait,   for
de.   it
while sometimes it leads one into making slightly exaggerated
statements, yet in the main it is
a good, healthy feeling for the
individual, and at all times conducive to the prosperity and
growth of his city. It makes
one vigorous in defense, and persistent in undertaking; it is an
incentive to industry; it makes
the individual contented and
therefore happy, Believe in
yuur town and talk your belief.
If you have any old fogies re-
• member they are in the minority, aud that it takes ail kinds of
people to make a world anyway.
Encourage live people to move in
by making it worth their while.
Welcome outside capital in developing any natural resources the
town has. Don't begrudge the
dollars the enterprising man
makes, but l.ustle around and
collect a few yourself. Above
till "pull together," and the town
will ride the high wave of prosperity over the most discouraging breakers, and every inhabitant will get his or her share of
the profit from the voyage.
This is like all other cities of
ils size. It is not without the
croaker or the kicker. His presence seems indispensible to keep
up the contrast between the enterprising citizen whose influence
ii felt and see in the march of
progress and improvement and
the man who finds his greatest
delight in throwing a wet blanket on every enterprise that tends
toward Improving the town.
Why is a newspaper like a
pretty woman? To be perfect it
must be the embodiment of many
types.   Its form is made up.   It
is always chased though inclined
to be giddy. It enjoys a good
press; the more rapid the better.
It has a weakness for gossip.
Talks a good deal. Can stand
some praise, and it's awfully
proud of a new dress.

'' The foundations of
the Home Office Building are enormously
strong. Some were surprised at their massive-
ntss, but we could not
be too careful in this
respect, as we planned
the foundations to ultimately carry fifteen
stories, room for the
expansion to come.''
