AN EXPLANATION
A Bectlon ol the Liberal preBB   lias
been saying harsh things lately aboui
ee im ess, Liberal organ at the
capital, Intimating that, it is not     a
bi paper  and that lt is
y   Conservative   interests, | hllrsts  ,,f   the  niilckr ,kei s   that      they
marked the session of parliament during the past week, it is refreshing in
the extreme to read the patriotic,
businesslike and apparently honest
utterances of Major-General Sir Sam
Hughes. Sam Hughes was frank enough to declare in his own speech
that he was considered "erratic."
Yet from the lips of this "erratic"
gentleman there came in live minutes
more real military and business Information than from Pugsley, Carvell
and a half-dozen other long winded
orators during the whole week. That
Sam Hughes understands his business
knows how to do things and does
I hem, anl has nearly every detail dl
his immense department almost in the
hollow of his band, must be apparent
to any person who has carefully read
bis address in the commons on Wed
nesday. The  minister dt  militia, chief-
iv  because of the Intimate knowledge
be has m connection with his depart-
iienl   from  tbe   minute war  broke out
down    to   the   present moment, put
such a    crimp  in the  bellowing      out
say • hi Calgai y Daily Herald, In the
iS8U( il tbe I'M i"' Press just to hand
ippi are in explanation of tins pecul
tion "a the part eif its party
i- -.M-: - which is here reproduced as
extremely  interesting reading.
It seems that in his quizzing of
He.n. Mr. Hazen the other day in thi
:, ' Mr. Carvell wanted to know
why the minister did not produce a
complete list of t.he companies which
i.,,ii received contracts from the Bert-
will Me utterly discredited in many
ed   their  charges   in   the   minds  of   ev
ery person who reads what Major-
General Hughes has to say. The minister not only placed a new and entirely different light or, the numerous
transactions in connection with    the
manufacture of war munitions, hut he
also proved conclusively that he bas
managed to keep bin department aa
free from the charge of political Influence, graft, boodlirg and collusion
as any human being could do. Canada  is fortunate iu  having a  man      Ol
under one standard. All the quibbles
of which the Liberal press bas made
so lunch failed to materialise, and
the party presented an unbroken
front, and endorsed with a unanimous
voice the selection of its parliamentary candidate and the oflicers of its
organization. The Liberal party is
welcome to all the consolation it can
derive from so-called dissensions and
lack of harmony in local Conservatism. The gulf between the late and
the present adr! Inlstration hns been'
bridged by the loyalty, the sincerity
and the devotion of the party representatives, wbo have set their faces
towards the goal which they are
I oiiril to reach whenever an election
is held. It, may he idle to speculate
as to the date, because signs multiply that there will be no fight, nnd
that, like the historic boy who chalked up "No popery," and then ran
iway, the Liberal party ol Victoria
bas chalked up "what, wauls a light"
niil then taken to the woods. He that
significance and the enthusiasm ol
is it n.ay, nothing can diminish the
the annual meeting ol the Conservative Association, which, under the
able guidance of Mr. Reginald Hay
ward, a native son, and one of thc
most honorable and capable of the
young business men of this city, is
as certain of victory at the polls,
whether in a by-election or a general
election, "s at any time during the
last decade.

A shock which staggered the community with grief and horror was
sustained by the people of Okanagan
Landing last Thursdaj morning when
it became known tbat Mrs. R. Curtis
and her eldest daughter were dead,
and three other children seriously ill
from poison administered the previous night hy the unfortunate lady
when in an unsound state of mind.
The story ol the tragic affair as it
was developed at the inmost held bv
Dr. 0. Morris revealed the fact that
on Wednesday evening Mr. Curtis, who
conducts a dairy farm near the Landing, had left, the family all well and
loparenitly happy at about 7 ..'clock
when he went to the barn where he
" orked until a\bout ele'ven o'clock
'i,aw ing out frozen pipes. On his return tn the bouse he was horror-
strii en to find Mrs. Curtis and her
daughter Dorothy, aged about eight
years, dead, and the three other children very ill. The eldest surviving
girl   was abb' to  give some  iii'i.emit of

The decision of the department of
Militia to hold back one half of the
pay of Canadian private overseas
wbo have made no assignment of any ]
part of it is distinctly in the men's
interests. It will serve three objects,
—providing a nest-egg against the
day of discharge into civil life; keeping a more even balance in spending
opportunities between men at the
front who have assigned pay to relatives at home, nnd those who have
not assigned; and lessening the discontent of the British soldiers at
their very inferior rate of pay. All
three ol these reasons are important
in a disciplinary sense, and ^n the aggregate form a very powerful justification for the department's action,
unpopular as it may be with some of
the lads overseas. It is easy to understand how the Interests ol discipline can he furthered by not paying
over $1.10 a day to soldiers in camp
or ui the field, The opportunities fm-
nri'ieaiihv  spending arc numerous aud
the restraints of home life, bome attractions, and civil needs are quite
lacking.  Bj   holding back half of the
pay, after a year's service the soldier will have coming to him almost
$200 as a 'uud to carry him along
until he gets back into civil harness.
But v.liile this need of economy bus
impressed the authorities, no douht
;.n influential reason for thc decision
is the fact that the large spending allowances of most Canadian soldiers
overseas have made the British Tommies quite discontented. Their pay is
.'bout 50 cents a day. Those who assign jiart e,f their pay, aB a large
proportion dt the men of the British-
armies do, have for spending only a
pittance compared -with tbe single
Canadians, The married men in the
Canadian forces are also placed under considerable disadvantage, as
compared with the single ones, in the
matter of spending money. Tt would
seen.- better in tho interests ol fair
play and justice all  round  if the dis
tribution to the unmarried men were
not greatly superior to that to tho
married men. If half the pay of say,
80,(100 Bingle men in the Canadian forces overseas were held back for a
year, those men would get on re-entering Canada about $lf.,0(K»,'000. That
would be a real start toward better
things ficiancially.

A POPULAR OFFICER
Two years ago Ben Tillet, the organizer of the London dockers, and
the foremost firebrand in Great Britain, was regarded as one of the greatest enemies within the empire. Today
he is one of the most impassioned recruiting sergeants. He has been to
tbe front, in the trenches, and he haa
returned to tell iu burning words the
needs of the army, and to urge slackers to their duty. In a speech delivered a few days ago at a recruiting
meeting presided over by the Duke of
Rutland, Tillet admitted tbat before
the war be had had a rather hostile
opinion of the Duke and his class.
i-'ince he had been to Flanders, his
opinion had changed, and he stated
that there were no braver, liner men
in the world than the "nuts," as he
used to call them, the scions of the
British aristocracy, at thc front. He
concluded by paying a tribute to a
young ollicer whom he had met there
and who was the best beloved junior
oflicer in the British army, a young
man whom danger could not deter,
who was as democratic as any "Tommy," nnd who had set an example of
devotion tie duty thnt all might envy. The young officer was the Prince
of Wales.
PRINCE GOES TO FLANDKRS
It is slightly over a year ago since
the future King of England was grunted the desire of his heart, and was
given permission to go to the front.
He hud earlier requested that he
should be sent, hut Earl Kitchener
had refused. Finally, when the young
man had persuaded his father and
mother, tbe War Secretary conseuted
and th? Prince became a lieutenant in
the Grenadier Guards, and was sent
to Flanders. He was soon transferred to the headquarters stall, and has
served with it since the beginning cl
The war. carrying despatches for Sir
John French and discharging otber
important functions. Many stories
bave come back in the letters of private soldiers bearing testimony to the
fart that t'i,' Pi ne,. if Wales is no
mere figurehead, but is sharing in tbe
dangers and hardships df tbe cain-
jaign. One of the best authenticate.'
deals with his determination, despite
the persuasion of others, to gel into
danger, if by doing so he can accomplish anything. When remonstrated
with. not long ago, as to the value
ief his life, be observe,I that he bad
jlenty of brothers, .md that if he
were killed his place would be well
tilled.

acted on my general staff as a Latson
officer. Reports from thc general officers commanding uorps and divisions
io which lie has heen attached agree
in commending the thoroughness witb
which b< performs anv work entrusted to htm. His visits to the troops
both in the field and In hospitals
have been greatly appreciated by all
lanks. His Royal Highness did duty
fir a time in the trenches with the
battalion  to which he belongs."
This cold, formal picture of tlie future sovereign of the British empire
is elaborated in many letters from
the trenches, says a correspondent of
the New York Herald. Frequently he
passes ah ng the network of glorified
ditches by whicb the British troops
have barred the enemy's advance for
the hist year. Whether shells are
passing overhead or not makes no
difference to the smile with which the
eillicir jinnee  greets  tbe guardians    "f
these trenches. Through a peris,....
be examines tin c rnmn line, listen
Ing t.. the explanations of the situation given by officers In command nt
ihe particular section. There is no attempt to prevent tbe Prince from
getting too near the tiring line; in
deed it is doubtful if he would submit to any manoeuvres to kcc|i him
out of tbe danger zone, but the pic-
turesque story that he bad a narrow
i sca|ic from death at Loos Is devoid
id truth. The Prince's automobile if
well known all nloug the British lints, and plays a large part in the
many narratives of his unassuming
kindness. He bas often overtaken
wearied soldiers on tbe roadside and
picked them up and carried them to
their destination, mnny of the men
heing ignorant dt the identity of the
pleasant young stafl officer who hus
befriended them in so practical a
manner. One of the Tommies helped
along in this way was soon chatting
in regular soldier fashion with tin
iwo ollicers who hnd picked bin.- up
and in a rush of confidence eventual
ly displayed a photograph •■! the girl
he liHtl  l(<t behind.
In reply to an enquiry whether he
carried any simllai momentoi "t
bome    tbe younger ,,f 11„    ifllceri   ri
mnrkes smilingly, "Well,  I've got my
father's     picture with me,  nnd     I'll,
make von a present of \t if you like":
Thc eolditr t. MirpiiM-  mme turned   to
m eonfnsed atnntewent when tbe com-j
jianion took a sovereign from bis
pocket and placed it in bis hand. Behind the lines the Prince ie juat as
popular, for he spends much of bis
spare time inspecting the hospitals
and the recreation rooms of the men,
going about unobtrusively. When
sports meetings and football matches
arc arranged be is often to be found
looking on, and in fact he takes a
keen interest in all that concerns the
troops.
In om year the future king of England bas grown from an Irresponsible
boy to a man who has been through
the most terrific experiences of the
war. He has met his -feature subjects
' ot as an heir apparent, but as a
man, and has "made good" with
them. Not in a century has any British prince come into such close contact with those whom he will one
day reign over, and there are not
many young princes who could have
.-tood the test so well, Unlike the
Crown Prince of Germany, he docs
not pretend to be a military genius.
He is satisfied if he can "do his bit"
like hit brother officers, and to have
the admiration and respect of tho
private soldiers with whom he comes
in contact  is his sufficient reward.
Neglected Heroes
of the War
In some respects there is not enough publicity in this war. One writer says it is being fought in tbe
dark. Our men write from'"Somewhere in France," and the very names of regiments are omitted. The cen-
sorship bas been overstrict in this
respect, It has been accused, with
some reason, of minimising or sup-
pressing altogether reports of British
reverses. When the war is over it
will he called .o account for these
sins, and it may have an excuse. But
a worse charge to explain is the minimising of the innumerable deeds ol
heroism that have been performed by
Uritish troops. Probably there are
n"t a half a dozen people in Canada
who can tell half of the men who
have won Victoria crosses. The news-
paper reading public does not know
whom to honor, and the newspaper
reading public is the public. The cen-
sorship suppresses all particulars of
the heroic deeds that have heen
crowned with the little iron cross
"For valor," and when the details
leak out they refer to events so far
in the pasl that they are considered
unworthy of attention in the news
columns.
A hundred years from now the readers of newspapers will lie devouring
the details that are withheld from
this generation, and descendants of
the heroes who havc thus distinguished themselves will be boasting of the
deeds that pass almost unnoticed as
tar     as the great hulk of newspaper
readers are concerned. Some of these
feats, however, ought to be known
and appreciated by the generation for
whose sake they are performed, and
a special correspondent df the New
Vork Tribune has selected some few
notable instances of heroism whicb
the cables have failed to record:
"When at Suvla Bay the Turks set
fire to the scrub to retard the rush
of the British troops, Quartermaster
Sergeant Prosser, of the Gth battalion Eorder Regiment, went out in
the bail of bullets and shells to
bring in some wounded who were iH
danger of being burned to death. Ho
picked up a wounded soldier, threw
him over bis shoulder and started
back, but before he could reach shelter a second bullet killed the officer.
Again Prosser rushed lorward, undaunted by the shower of shot and
shell, saddled himself with another
wounded soldier and got him safely
to shelter. Again and again he nvado
his way out into the inlerno and each
time returned with a wounded Tommy.
"The fortitude of seme of tbc men
is simply amazing. Take the case of
Laiice-Corporal J. Williams, of the
Royal Welsh Fusiliers. This Is tho
way he won the D.C.M.: There wns
a sharp engagement at Festubert on
Sept-miber 15. Killed and wounded
were stretched out all around after
Ihe charge and the counter-charge.
There was a lull in the fighting and
when Williams took stock of his injuries he found that a bullet bad
pierced his left shoulder and that
merely two threads were supporting
what was left of his left hand. Have
you ever run a splinter under your
finger nail? If you have, how much
use were you till it was extracted
and the finger bound up? Williams
looked at his hand and then looked
around and Saw a lot of comrades
who were even worse otl. And so be
uBed his good right hand—for good
hands, right or left, were scarce Just
then—to assist in bandaging all the
wounded near him, and all tho time
he cheered and encouraged, il"' wounded about him. When thc work was
over he refused the offer of the stretcher bearers arid walked unaided
through the communication trench to
thc first aid hospital, where the two
threads were severed.
"In normal times Jim Sweeney
might think his a hard lot if he had
to lose a night's sleep, but Lance-
Corporal J. Sweeney is quite a diff-
init man. Any mud covered soldier
you see slipping into thc city
in the early morning hours for a
day's rest at home will tell you that
llooge and its vicinity is "a hell of
a hole." 'And when you see these soldiers fresh from the trenches you can
believe it. Lance-Cor|>ornl J. Sweeney was stationed in an open trench
in Hooge. It was his duty to direct
the stretcher hearers and assist in
emergency dressings. For twenty-seven hours he stuck to his job. Then he
Jed the stretcher bearers up and down
to the advance trenches for twenty-
one hours more. All these forty-
eight hours the Germans were hrop-
ping shells and bombs nnd working
their mnchioe guns and rifles over tho
section were Sweeney was statlorrd.
He has red hair, broad shoulders, grit
and determination and a D.C.M."
One might tind hundreds, if not
thousands, of instances of daring, as
extreme, of self-Bacrilice as noble as
those which have been officially honored by the bestowal of thc V. C, or
the Military Cross or the D. S. 0.
Those who think that the human
breed has shown signs of decadence
ought to study thc official lists. Never in the history of the world have
there been so mnny heroes gathered
together. Never has bravery been so
much a matter of course. The truth
is that tbere have been so many heroic men that they have ceased to attract attention. In many cases the
deeds that have won the great military distinctions of the war have
been performed by clerks and others
wbo a year ago had no more idea
that, tbey were built of tbe hero
stuff than that they were born to be
kings or jirime ministers.

(In Thursday evening the volley
.ball games that wero to have been
played on Tuesday were played off.
The first game waa beeweeu the Dent
house and the Undertakers, two teams
i« yet undefeated. There was great
interest in this game as both tennis
were sure of victory and there was
greal rivalry between t.lic two. The
play   v as   the  fastest  that   has     been
seen ln the gym. yet this winter and
up till the last point had been scored
it was impossible to tell whicb would
Win, The first game wenl to t.he
Unit bouse With a score of :J1 to 19.
\ very tight game and played hard
till the last point was marked down.
A loss fui the Undertakers was only
x\ stln.ulaiit and the second came was
to their advantage bc ire 21-14'. They
managed to net a little lead at one
I Mm- ii the game and it, helped them
in coming out winners. This made a
game each and the play for the final
ellort ivas very close. Now the Dents
would hive the lead and then again
tht Undertakers would be ahead bul
near the last the Denl house Bome
how fell down and the Undertakers
wi n the match with a final score 21-
17. The Dent house team was heard
to assert that the Undertakers certainly nad the game down fine to
Meat their tried atrcregation. This is
,, great compliment to the Undertak-
i rs but they should not lee' too proud
over their winnings as the Dents say
thej are due for a    trimming    when
Ihey  meet   again.
The second game of the evening was
between the government and bankers.

luck and wine expressing lie light
hearted carefree nature of the southern necro.
With such a basis dancing, since it
has direct influence upon our mental,
Undefeated social and Physical lite, ought to be
developed and used in our training.
Dancing affords splendid opportunity
j lor natural symetrical development of
the body, and is now gainlne favor
with the physical educators in the
gymnasiums, jdaygrounds and schools
all over the country. A good many of
the old folk dances are being used,
and new ones designed expressive of
our own tyjics of development r.i A
Ideas of heauty. In this ancient art
there arc dances to suit the smallest
children   and   dames  io  test  the  skill
and    agility    ,,f  the mosl proficient
dancers  in  our   gymnasiums,  etc.
As a mean.- ol development ol coordination betweeci mind and body
and the syn.etrical development ol
the muscles dancing is Ideal. The
nicety of balance, tlie easy graceful
movement, the continued performance
of the steps all tend toward that
strength o'l tissue and equality ol development cmipled with endurance
which makes the physiu'.ir perfect. At
the same time the music and the very
movements ol the dance ehemselves
slve pleasure to the dancer and the
lishtness of heart induced is the secret of the Donulariti ol danoing in
i very gymnasium, playground and
school where it Is taught.

Vnnle McLean,
We have not yet realised in Canada
-m———~- how   necessary it Is that all our rin-
dance     of the indian to the darkie's  anclal resources should be conserved,
how vital to the empire it is that
we should do without luxuries and
avoid all waste. Those who preach
thrift and economy are charged with
trying to ruin the country. We are
not like Germany. On every hand Ib
wealth and prosperity, and the evidence that they will continue. We
suppose that as this is a rich country we can do pretty much as we
please with our own, and that the
government will be able to attend to
all   war expenditures.    We forget that
the government is the people of Canada, that only tbe people of Canada
are subject to taxation by the gov-
ernment of Canada, and thnt if our
government is to find a surplus for
extraordinary     war experrlitures     lt
must   be  lound  iii  the possession      Ol
our people,
There is a tremendous difference
between the situation in Canada and
the    pit-i'ation In Oarmanv,    in Her-
many ths chief food products are under the control of the government.
Only upon certain days may meat he
laten. The government commandeers
supplies ai.l regulates prices, because
n'ljiplies are scarce and because the
people must live, Food must not bc
put to such a price that the people,
as an alternative to starvation, will
rebel. In Canada food is plentiful,
if dear. Everyone can eat as much
as he chooses. Evwy able bodied
man has a job. The point is that
here we desire to establish a savings
account. Whatever wa consume subtracts so much from what we might
save, uui saving contributes to the
war. The Germans are down to thc
point where they must consume only
what is necessary to keep them alive.
Here we are consuming, per capita,
more than two Germarn. Why cannot
we live more carefully, and have
more money to hiind over to the government for the conduct ol the war'1
The need for thrift is emphasised
by a manifest issued by a number of
Great Britain's leading bankers. The
document was published in the New
York Sunday Sun, and some of the
p.nits mentioned ure well worth our
i  msider..tion:
"In a long war." it says, "success
Mepeivls mainly upon respective financial resources il the combatants and
the consequent power of* one of them
tn maintain or to add to its fighting
.-I length when the otner is declining
or is not capable of expansion.
"Therefore  the  iM.'py's efforts  have
been directed to three essential  mat
ters:
"ill T.e seise victory before thefot-
i es ol the allies could bc mobilized in
overwhelming strength.
"i.!l   To  reduce the economic      and
financial strength of tho allies.
"■': i To prevent the     allies     Iron.
i
making or jiiirchBsing sufficient equipment md ammunition for their ever
• ipanding forces."
After reviewing what hns been accomplished already by the allies, the
manifesto continues:
"Only one thing is now needed to
command victory. The allies have aa
semlded  new   armies  ot  overwhelming
strength In BHrance, in Russia, in Italy and ni Great Britain, and everything     needed   to Pijni|> them and to
bankers Take
