The Voters' List.
Mr. J. T. Robinson conservative nominee of this district for j
the next federal election, has!
heen a visitor during the week. I
Mr. Robinson accompanied by
Mr. Cameron, manager of the
Inland Express Co., came up the
Cariboo road all the way from
Ashcroft by automobile, arriving
in Prince (leorge last Monday
evening. Mr. Robinson is paying a visit to the different parts
of his constituency in the north
of the riding. After spending
Tuesday in the city he left for
Vanderhoof, returning from that
point on yesterday's train. Mr.
Robinson was very much taken
up with the appearance of the
country round about Vanderhoof.
There is a lot of fine land there
and he expects to see that section of the valley develop into an
important farming centre.
Last Monday was the last day
| when voters could apply for J
J registration, excepting in cases:
where the voters are properly i
holders, These will have until,
tho end of this month to register.J
A very large voters' list is proor
of the interest taken, and it is I
expected that nearly a thousand |
votes will be cast at the next;
civic election.

country. This may mean Greece's participation in the

the Russian armies are hammering away at the Teutonic lines and in many places they have met with
great successes during the past few days, taking thousands of prisoners. French and British submarines

Prince George will have a fine
skating rink this season. The
owners are going ahead with the
work and will have everything
in readiness for the opening of

these will give ample light for
hockey playing. A grandstand
capable of seating 200 people is
being built.

No doubt a good many of the
wounded have recovered and returned to the front. We may
say roughly that the nations have
used up about one-tenth of their
total theoretical fighting strength
without arriving any nearer to a
decision, so far as one can now
see, than they were a year ago.
That they can fight two years

the lands or used by holders in
purchasing public land.   As the
estimated value of the lands far
exceeded   the  amount  of the
notes, that seemed safe enough ;
but during the next year the
government needed more money
and issued an additional eight
hundred million francs of assign-
ats, solemnly pledging itself to

i too great, however.

assignats, or charging a greater
price for goods when payment
was to be made in assignats than
when it was to be made in gold.
But, as it kept on issuing assignats, the penalties were futile.
When the amount reached twenty-four billion francs assignats
were worth one-thirtieth < f their
face value. When it got to forty-
five billions they were virtually
worthless. Some of them were
finally, redeemed at about one-
seventieth of their face value.

MADRID.-In spite of official

In these quarters the idea is

that there is any foundation for

the resull will be the cleansing
of civilization of one of its darkest blots. Meanwhile, what of
the reforms that are being thrust
upon those not engaged in actual
conflict ? Of great interest to
those engaged in relief work for
the soldiers at the front, is the
question of sending cigarettes
to the trenches. The leaders of
the W. C. T. U. claim that all
funds used for this purpose are
misappropriated. This seems a
case of going too far with a good
thing. Possibly most people will
admit that the use of tobacco is
an injurious habit that could with
benefit be sloughed off, but is it
not asking too much of the men
who are doing the nation's fighting to undergo the additional
physical strain of foregoing the
use of tobacco ? Heaven knows
we stand in need of reform, but
social evolution is a slow proceeding, and it-were well to proceed
with caution.

The Aftermath.
Take an American with an income of twenty thousand dollars
a year, derived from investments
and an Englishman with an income of twenty-five hundred
dollars a year, similarly derived.
The Englishman, under the new
budget, pays twice as much income tax as the American, If his
income of twenty-five hundred
dollars is earned—that is, if it is
a salary or remuneration for
professional services, or trade
profits, or the like—he pays two
hundred and ten dollars a year,
or about what an American with
an income of twenty-five thousand dollars a year would pay.

Questionable Charity.
Sir Joseph Lyons told a very
good story at the opening of a
soup kitchen   for  Jewish   poor
children recently.   Getting into
her carriage one day a lady remarked to her footman, ''Jack-1
son, it's a very cold day. Remind
me when 1 get home to  send ;
some blankets to the poor peo- '■
pie."   At the end of the drive,
she entered her pleasantly warm- j
ed home again and made herself
comfortable with a cup of tea before the,, fire.   Jackson, as  requested, reminded her about the
blankets,    "Ah,  yes,  I remem-I
ber,"  she  remarked.    "But  I
don't think I need send them.
It's so nice and warm now."

It happened aboard a diner on
an eastern road and the hero of
the sketch was the waiter, a
coal-black, exceedingly polite
person, whose manner alone was
proof sufficient that h_ lived to
make life brighter and fairer for
his patrons.
"Waiter," said a traveler, as
he sat himself down at one of
the little tables, "bring me grapefruit, hot toast, coffee and two
poached eggs."
"Kunnel," stated the waiter,
bending forward confidentially
and speaking under his breath,
