A SPECIMEN ^ MEETINGS HELD_
BY BREWS, X & MACDONALD
m%_mmmmmt-i'*Cm.^ g      ""
Addresses are Disappointing ♦dience Listened to
Old Harangue of Abuse hnd Illegality—Had Ho
Policy to Offer Voters
Messrs. Brewster and Macdonald,
^accompanied by Mr. Yorston, tlie Liberal candidate lur Cariboo, addressed
a public meeting in Quesnel lust Snt-
urday night. As is customary with nil
speakers, thoy were accorded n re-
Bpectful lien ring, It is uol betraying
a Btate secrei to say thai the ad-
drossos were distinctly disappointing,
because the people cnine to the meeting anticipating a clear cut policy
of development and construction nnd
instead hnd to listen to the old luir-
angue of abuse and illegality.
Still a Blocker
Mr. Brewster himself took up the
old familiar line of "slamming" tlit*
Tomls, and was promptly and pointedly informed by Mr. J. A. Fraser. that
he should lie big enough to leave such
threadbare subjects for discussion
between the local candidates, and
apply liimself in tiie larger issues nl'
tin. day. Jli- I hen proceeded lo deal
with the famous writ, and succeeded
in convincing everyone that lie was
still attempting t.. block the business
«>f tlie country.
lie alBO labored a most intricate
and complicated argument tn prove
thai tiic Conservatives of Vancouver
had organized and carried out tbe
plugging conspiracy in the recent bye-
elections, but lie forgot to mention
that tlu1 detective ^employed by the
Liberals in the Conservative committee moms bad exonerated the Conservatives from any form of wrong-doing.
Sidetrack the Towns
On the burning local question of the
change of route in the PiG.E. he declined to express an opinion, but stated he had no doubt that Mr. Yorston
would be able to advise him on the
■nattier and fully protect the towns
interested. This aroused the resentment of everyone, as Mr. Yorslon bus
already stated publicly that the line
should have been located by way of
Harper's Camp, and this route would
completely and  effectively sidetrack
the towns.
Iii striking contrast to tbe courtesy
extended to Mr. Yorston, the Liberal
candidate on the Premier's trip, Mr.
Fraser. the Conservative candidate, to
the surprise of the audience, was oot
allowed to reply to either Mr.  Mrcw-
ster or Mr. Macdonald.
Still Distorting Facts
In a tew well chosen remarks, Mr.
Fraser welcomed Messrs. Brewster
anil Macdonnld to the historic district be is so proud to represent and
of which be has made so excellent a
representative. He showed hi- thorough grasp of provincial affairs by
demonstrating the unfairness of the
statements made by Mr. Macdonald
in regard to the work of the Public
Accounts Committee. He pointed out
that Mr. Macdonald was still charging
that the sub-contract for excavation
at the Parliament Buildings was let
to the highest inst.'ail of the lowest
bidder, notwithstanding the fact that
the evidence clearly showed that)
when this contract was given thc subcontractor agreed lo accept the price
at which the lowest bidder had ..tiered to do the work. By nailing this
statement hard and fast and compelling Mr, Macdonald to admit it he
discredited entirely ihtj unjustified
statements made in regard t>. the administration of provincial affairs. In
concluding bis remarks he asked the
audience to pay particular attention
to both speakers and to note carefully
and well the "constructive*' policy
outlined.
Mr. Fraser's Return Assured
After the meeting it wns admitted
on all sides that neither "l the Liberal speakers had made a single
statement that would give any indication of what their policy was.
Mr. Fraser has consistently .Maimed that lie would set a two i" one vote
in Quesnel, and the sentiment prevailing after the  meeting wns  that  he
would be safe in saying three lo "lie.

Tbc importance of the ostnblish-
incnl of the proposed industry may be
gauged by the fnet, thai in 1012 ii is
estimated thai the waste of byproducts from coke oven- in Uritish
Columbia and Alberta represented
12,560,107 pounds of ammonium sulphate nnd 13,383.800 gullons of tar.
The    II inioil    Coke ('ompany in
Nova Scotia has put in byproduct ov-
ms and the saving nf byprodudts amounts to $1.03 for .very ten of coke

The degree to winch the manufacture of byproducts from the gas tar
might be carried in this province will

which  can   be  < lomieally  reached.
There is little doubt thai the range
would include ammonium sulphate-,

MISREPRESENTATION
We did rot think that the Review
would stoop to the standard set by
the leader of the Liberal party. The
article appearing in the Review stat-'
ing that "all n.ad work had been
stopped in the district" is misrepresentation   aud worse, it is a deliber-
i
ate untruth, and tbe Review knows it
to be one, A Review representative
, •.;>■ on Monday saw men at work on
the automobile road. This work has.
l.een going on steadily and there is
also much work being done on the
outskirts ol Revelstoke ir.i all direc-,
tions. It is poor policy for Dr. W. H.
Sutherland's organ to publish such
flagrant untruths. However, that is a
trait of the Liberal party all over
Uritish  Columbia  and Canada.
HON. TH0\ TAYLOR M. ?. P.
The nomination of Hon. Thon.as
Taylor, M.P.P., Minister of Public
Works, as the Conservative candidate
fe'i the Revelstoke electoral district
is a direct appreciation of the work
that the Minister of Publio Works has
done fur bis district in the past and
is also ar- unmistakable expression of
confidence in him as the future representative oi  this  district.
The expenditures by the Department

UNAUTHORISED CANDIDATES
The Vuucouver Conservatives have

the ticket and those who wished lo
introduce one or more new candidates
were ready to accept Ihe verdict,
whatever il might lie. The local executive did not presume to dictate to
the rank and file ..! the parly whether
they should have a new ticket. The
executive did not even determine
whether there should lie a new eon-
vention, An open party meeting was
culled to settle that question. The
meeting promptly decided that the
people should have their chance.
Therefore open parly meetings   were

POLITICAL NOTES
If Mr. Brewster hiul been successful in forcing the dissolution of the
legislature on March 14 i.e would
have succeeded in preventing tho
passage of the Workmen's Compensation Act, not because it is not a good
act, but because it was passed by the
held in the ward-.     Delegates    were I Bowsw.    government.—Grand    Forks

somewhere in the neighborhood of
$30,000,000 a year, but what is a trifle
like that compared to the glory of
having the affairs of the province ad
ministered by Mr. Brewster and his
friends ?

Sir Hibbert Tuppcr's talk of high
"ideals" will not make the public forget the Liberal plugging scandal nt
Vancouver. Opposition supporters who
can swallow a wholesale conspiracy
to rob the people of the honest result
of the exercise of their right to the
franchise, should talk of something-
else except "ideals" and "dean" politics.—Nelson  Daily News.
"The government never had, nor
bas it today, any intention of bringing into operation the agricultural
aid measure, or, tor that matter, its
sister the workmen's compensation
act.—The Victoria Times of Jan. 22
last. Both these measures have been
brought into operation. The government's good laith and the hollowness
of the opposition attacks upon it
have both been established.

CLASS LEGISLATION IN
B. C. PROHIBITION ACT
Measure Would Mean One Law for the
and Another for the Poor.
Rich
As the details of the Prohibition
Act, on which the electors will give .1
referendum vote on Sept. 14, are being brought out, the measure is becoming unpopular with fair mimleil
men because of the fact that the Act
covers "class legislation" of the most
pronounced type.
It is one of the principles of true
and stable government that general
laws should treat all citizens,—whether workingman or employer, whether rich or poor—alike. This principle is violated in a glaring manner
by the Prohibition Act, and for that
reason the measure is being condemned by the working class in particular
and fair minded electors in general.
While many clauses of the Act are
■ of the "class legislation" type, the
most glaring instance is that which
is contained in clause 57, the section
which provides for the uncontrolled,
unrestricted an.l unlimited importation of liquor men from outside the
province. This clause reads as follows :
"Nothing  in   this  act   shall  be
construed  to  interfere  (a)     with
the right of any person    to    import from without the province liquor for bona tide use in his private dwelling house."
This clause is a direct blow at the
workingman,   the  mainstay    of    the
■prosperity of the  province,  and  the
man of moderate means, whose earnings are insufficient to allow him   to
save money to any considerable am-
o.:nt
incnt Vancouver financial man, when
he said: "If I voted for the Prohibition Act, I'd do it with the knowledge
that I could get just as much liquor as
I wanted anyhow, for I can afford to
send away for it. But I can't vote for
a measure which is so unfair as to
give privileges which are denied to the
workingmen just because he isn't as
well fixed as I am."
THE FAT IN THE KIKE
During a nice, sweet, brotherly debate nt Spalding Baptist Chapel, Dr.
E. C. Chappell, who is Headmaster of
the Grammar School, upset the pot
and threw the I'at in the lire. According to the Club and Institute Journal,
he said "he would sooner trust himself
in battle with hard-drinking, meat-
eating miners than with an equal
number of teetotal, vegetarian, and
non-smoking soldiers, even though
none of them had ever missed a prayer meeting"! You may guess what a
blaze there was in Spalding Chapel,
and how the brethren sizzled and fumed and smoked in hot indignation. But
Dr. Chappell stuck to his guns an.l
said it all over again, with a special
word of praise for South Yorkshire
miners, hard drinkers nnd meat-eaters !—John   Bull.

end you sought. Just glance over the
past history of the leaders of this
prohibition movement. Have you noticed any one of them anxious to increase the wages or reduce the working hours of their employee.",? I think
not. We in the labor movement are
conversant with the wages paid by
those so-called reformers, and if they
are genuinely interested in tlie social
uplift of the workers, they should at
least demonstrate that interest by
paying their help a living wage. If
the same amount of money that has
been spent by the prohibitionists had
been used to investigate the conditions
under which hundreds of young girls
are forced to work by some of those
reformer.', it would have clone fai
more for the city than any prohibition
act could hope to do.

Promotion for
Revelstoke Soldier
The following letter has been received fron, their son, David Orr, by
his parents, which shows that by now
Dave probably is a commissioned oflicer. i ; .
July -1, 1916.
My dear father and mother:
I have news for you. Whether you
consider same good or bad remains
to be seen. However, this is exactly
how it was handed to me.
Whilst laying alone in thc tent last
night, everyone else having gone out
walking, an orderly shouted in: "Sergeant Orr parade before the O.C. in
his room at once," "Oh pshaw," I
answered, *t being after duty hours
and knowing I had done no wrong.
"That's right," he replied, "yourself and three sergeant-majors are to
report at once."
Well, I went, talking to myself all
tbc way. When I arrived the three
majors were waiting, and Sgt-major
Mason said: ''We are all up for promotion, Dave." I
Finally, my name was called, and
in I went. Thc following conversation
ensued:
Colonel—"Sgt. Orr, Captain Mc-
Murdie has recommended you to me
as a suitable man to hold a commission. I have five allotments. He has
noted yonr actions on parade, claims
you are a man of good habits, attentive to your duty, nnd have sufficient
intelligence to qualify as an officer of
the King. Here nre the papers, fill
t Mi in in at once, report to thc doctor
and return to me in an hour, in order.
to catch the mail to London—and
don't look so surprised."
Well, I leave it to you to imagine
my feelings. Many mnke application
for commissions, but few are recom-'
mended.
If papers go through, and nothing,
will hinder in this case, I will be
granted C,r>0 for kit, uniform, sword, I
etc., and will undergo a quick training in rr.aP reading, military law interior economy, etc., etc., which will1
be as pie to me. Ad N.C.O. witb
Flinch experience has nothing to tear
and will no doubt be rushed through.1
Although the big drive is on, and,
lieutenants are first to lead and over]
the parapet, I havc no fears and aro
not rold-fnoted and don't intend to
join tiie army service corps. I like
the frnnt line and wont draw bnck
when the time opines for me to act.
Wont bother ynu with present war:
news, you get even a better press,
service.
(Marry on! Let's nave your con-;
eratulations for at least this much of
an advancement, nnd mother, cheer,
up', Trust me to act like a gentleman
amongst my future associates, both
in the mess and in the field.
Much love to yon both from your
«ver lovinc son,
DAVE.
