all wives of soldiers would    receive a
at cheap prices.     That is what    they
handle.  Here is a case in point:
Waterloo is a manufacturing town
of 30,000 people, situated in northeastern Iowa. A firm in that town
manufactured a popular line of creaiu
separators, which had quite a sale
throughout Iowa and adjoining states
A Chicago mail-order house conceived
the idea of handling cream separators
in its business, and accordingly oflered to take an entire year's output off
the manufacturer's hands. The terms
were liberal and the Waterloo man
accepted the offer. N'o sooner was the
I argain completed than the mail-order house sent an expert to Waterloo
to cheapen the cost ol production. He
den anded less expensive materials
here, less care and workmanship
there until the manufacturer in high
wrath declared that the house might
put out such cheap shoddy separators
if it liked,, but that his name and
brand shouid never go on them.
Now this is a fair sample of tho
factory work of mail-order houses.
They talk about cheapening production, whicb mearfi really that they
cheapen it by using shoddy materials
and doing slovenly work. The result
is an inferior class of goods, which,
if it even looks as well as the standard whicli your home merchant sells,

At a meeting of the women of Rev
elstoke held in tbe City Hall on Mon-.
day night, an association was formed
which will be known as the 'Woman's
Forum." It is the intention of this
association to take up many matters
aflectinc the city of Revelstoke and
to work for the betterment of the
city. An association such as this, and
run on broad lines, can do untold
good for ihe welfare of any city. Wo
wish the Woman's Forum every success.
Conservation and development of
home resources are first principles in
national economy. Whether in the nation, the province, or the city, thi;
rule holds good. Perhaps it appertain; more strongly whin applied to
the affairs of our cities and towns
than to those of the larger units in
our national life. Above all it applies'
to the new urban communities ol the
west, striving against great odds to
attain theii place in thc universal
Fcheme of things.
Revelstoke and towns similarly Bit
tinted are constantly menaced by the
efforts .ef monopolistic corporations
in the larger "centres to cut the
ground, as it were, from under their
struggling younger competitors. Once
the Bmall town trader is put out of
the wav, by fair meanB or foul (it
does not matter so long as Biiccess is
attained) these monopolists know tbe
wide co mtryside will be practically
at their mercy; they may then regulate everything to suit their own con-
verience, the people MUST trade with
them, generally on the monopolists'
ow-n terms, and then grip will daily
tighten on the throats of tbeir unfortunate victims, as their hoarded
gains swell to bursting point.

Germany is reported to be preparing a complaint against the destructive British "caterpillar" motors as

protest coming from the originators
of zeppelln warfare on women and

Mr. Brewster Having no easy
Time—Many   Aspiran's —A
Summing  up of the
Victoria is today the meccn of Liberal politician-;. The number of men
who are ready to assume the cares
and responsihilities of office are said
to be such that three cabinets, each
one ahout as good as another, could
be filled by Mr. Brewster. There Is no
dearth of cabinet material, nor of
cabinet aspirants, and Victoria is
honestly curious to find out whicli
particular seven of the thirty-five or
forty Liberal members-elect ,wlll con-
trtitute thc next cabinet.
Indeed the number to draw from is
even ereater, for it is said that two
of Mr. Brewster's visitors from tho
mainland     last   week were gentlemen
who, though outside of political life,
felt that they have unique qualities
above all other men in the province
to take charge of the portfolios o!
agriculture and ot lands. 01 course,
thty have excellent precedent in their
favor, for did not Sir Wilfred Laurier
go outside the House of Commons to
till certain of his portfolios? And
then there is the spare seat in Afchprni
all rendy to be offered to ariy man ol
transcendant abilities, who may be
needed to help pilot the ship of state
into the ir ilden waters of prosperity.
Mr. Brt.vster is regarded as positively .certain to take the portfolio of
finance in addition to the premiership. Finance lies very close to the
heart of every problem which Mr.
Brewster has set himself out to solve
and his followers are all saying tbat
it would inspire confidence abroad as
well as commend itself to all at home
if the incoming premier was to take
personal oversight and charge of the
department of finance.
This leaves six remaining departments to be filled, namely lands,
works, mines, education, justice and
agriculture. "Honest" John Oliver is
admitted to have the first claim on
tbe     portfolio     of     agriculture as a
practical agriculturalist, a former
leader of the party and a stalwart
who has fought its battles for many
years. But gossip haB it that "Honest John" Is not ambitious to "exchange the comfort of his domestic
fireside for the fireB and grillings
which go with office. "Honest" John members of the legal profession
is not a downtrodden son of the soil.' among its successful candidates. It is
He is a rather prosperous, contented rumored tbat this portfolio may not
individual who flies round hiB con- be filled for awhile, or filled tempor
Btltuency in t. high-powered car and arily until the Gosden case is dispos-
who can see jusi. ubout as much ser- ed of so as not to embarrass Mr. M.
vice and a great deal more pleasure A. Macdonald, who iB tb. private
in being a private member as in be- prosecutor in the (loader case,
ing a miniBter of the crown. Unless Mr. Macdonald's friends, however,
his leader insists that he join him in do not see any nee^ tor delay im up-
the cabinet, it is said that "Honest" pointing him to th cabinet, merely
John may follow his own choice and because the Gosden t'-ial has been de-
stay out, allowing the portfolio oo ferred, and will probably stoutly rp-
go to one or other of     the     younger ] ose any such move,
agriculturalists      ol     the     scientific]	
schools,     with     their parchments to
show from the agricultural colleges.
Rumor has it that T. D. Pattullo
of Prince Rupert and Ur. King of
Cranbrook are pretty sure to be called to the cabinet. The first-named being spokeu of in connection with the
lands department and thc latter wltu
the portfolio of education and provincial secretaryship. Then there is Mr.
Anderson of Kamloops, who threw
the harp.on into John Pearson Shaw.
The new member is a surveyor by
profession and his friends think his
experience valuable for a mi'..ster ol
public works. \ jj0v.

claims anil characters of the contest-  Nov. 20— Crawford
ants, and part of it from the rivalry
which exists between  the upper coun
try, Vancouver"Island and the city of
Greater Vancouver contains nearly
half of th'j population of the Province
and under Premier Bowser was accorded two ministers. This is said to
have aroused Liberal criticism in all
the other sections of tbe province,
who demand geographical representa-
tioci without regard to population.
The latest move is said to be the
uniting oi the   claims     of Vancouver
] Island an'l of the upper country, in a
t demand     that Vancouver   receive but
'. one porf.'olio,  namely the     attorney
• generalship, and that the other portfolio be given to Nanaimo or one of
e the    upper     country     constituencies.
I This is a new way of    playing     botb
ends against the middle.
Both Ralph Smith ot Vancouver
ind Vim. Sloan of Nanaimo have
been put forward by various parties
and bodies for the portfolio rJU mines,
though the former has also been men-
, tioned as a possibility for the depart
'ment of public works.     Both are old
I Nanaimo     men     and  understand thu
, coal mining business. Mr. Sloan, who
made his fortune gold mining in the
Yukon creeks, is also said to be financially intere-ted in the Vancouver
"Sun." On the other hand it is urged
that coal mining is at its maximum
in the province, and is of small Importance compared to the great possibilities in metalliferous mining.
Under the circumstances a good many
shrewd political observers at the
capital expect to see the portfolio of
mines go to Mr. Thompson of Phoe
nix or to John Keen of Kaslo. Both
of these men are said to uiiderstunl
the metal mining business, while li'o
appointment of either would satisfy
the claims of West Kootenay for cabinet representation. Mr. Sloan might
then become president of the council
and Mr. Ralph Smith minister of Public works. Another slate relegated
Mr. Smith to the speakership, but
friends of the Vancouver member do
not think this good enough* for a man
of his experience aril ability. Tho
