Ileferrlng to his recent trip to Eng-   ter the department.     In saying   this
he was not reflecting at all on Shr
Richard McBride, who, as Prime Minister and head of the government hud
rot had the time to properly devote
bis attention to the work.
"My eye turned only to one man,
the Hon. Lorne Campbell of Koss-
land, and oven the Liberal speakers
and the Liberal press say 1 selected;
the right man for the right place,"
continued the Premier. (Cheers).
"I also thought that measures
should be passed for protection of
the soldier. Before the bye-election,
Mr. Brewster said that the best, land
In the province had been handed over
to tho speculator and that the speculators were conservatives. Nobody
knows better than Mr. Brewster that
thc government agents throughout
the province have accept cd any check
that was tendered then., no matter
who was behind it, for these parcels
of land. Many of the Liberals of this
riding and many of the Liberals in
this audience were unfortunate enough
to be. "speculators" as Mr. Brewster
characterizes tbem, and tbey would
ci nslder themselves lucky if thoy
could get. back the 50 cents an acre
which thoy paid on their purchases.
Mr. Brewster is claiming that we
should have sold these men out. When
one man sues another in connection
with an agreement for sale the judges
In charge ol our courts are lenient
with the defendant in the suit, and if
this is to be our relation as between
citizen and citizen, what should be
the relation between the government
nnd the citizen? If anybody should l>e
lenient  the government should."
Mr. Farris bad charged that Mr.
Tisdall was thc "wet" candidate ia
the recent bye-election in Vancouver,
the Premier continued. That statement was on a par with hiB whole
speech nnd with tho tactics of thc.
Liberal party  all over the province.
Except for his political bias Mr.
Farris wns an intelligent man and he
knew very well thnt two days before
election he had made a public stat^
ment to the citizens of Vancouver
that he would carry out the promise
made by his predecessor, Sir Richard
McBride, that n referendum would he
taken on the Prohibition <|ueHtio-_.
He could not understand why Mr.
Farris should have the effrontery to
tay that Mr. Tisdall was the "^t**
candidate.
It had been stated not only in his
manifesto, but in the King's speech
read before thc House that this referendum would bc taken as well aa
one to give women the vote.
"Kvcry promise I made in the manifesto is now the law of thc province," continued the Premier amid a
roar of applause. "1 am not making
promises on the eve of nn election,
but I am going to the people on the
record of my administration ns well
as on that of Sir Richard McBride. I
am not pursuing a policy of personal
attack, and it will be on our record
and on our record alone thnt tbe people shnll decide whether they wish us
to continue in power or not.
"Mr. Farris has made a personnl
attack, but 1 am not surprised at it.
The whole campaign of thc Liberal
party is one of villification nnd abuat

"My friend refers to the Dominion

thc latter, every Attorney-General in
thc Dominion and the Empire is also
a member ol a law firm. Our witt-

to lie expected with our remuneration

Crown.

NEW SCHEME
Wounded Soldiers in training
— Allowances for Men and
Their Families
We Canadians are absolutely
tinanimous about one thing in this
war,—that justice nnd reparation
must be secured for those who have
Buffered. Tlio men who bave volunteered to fight for us. while we have
stayed safely at home,—those men,
■Doming buck slm tiered nnd torn, or
with health in nny way impaired by
their service, must have reparation,
nml from us.
ll is tlie first word of justice; and
there is no Canadian worthy of tho
nnnic who will not agree to it with nil
his heart.
Our head as well ns our heart,
however, must be employed to devise
a form of reparation that will, really
repair,- thai will ns far as possible
make up to these men what they hnve
lost.
From the beginning of lhe wnr it
wns recognised that a man offering
his body to defend our cause should
have compensation for nny injury his
body might suffer in the carrying out
of thai task. A scale of pensions was
adopted both for disabled soldiers
ami for their dependants, in proportion tn the degree of disability. A revised scale, involving a large increase
of expenditure, wns lately agreed to
by a Parliamentary Committee and is
already in force.
A pension alone, however, will not
restore the injured man to his place
ns an active and useful member of the
community; and that has got to be
done, by some means or other, both
in the community's interest and in his
own.
A very few of the injured will be
found so totally helpless that this restoration is impossible. On the other
hand, judging by our experience so
far, u large majority, in spite of their
injuries, will still be fit for their former work. Hut between these two
classes will be many men with injuries either handicapping them seriously in their old occupations or barring them out altogether.
Such men must not be condemned
to perpetual uselessness. They would
not thank us for that. They nre not
of the back-boneless kind, or they
would hardly have thrown themselves
into the war. Thoy did not enlist to
be coddled or spoon-fed, nnd they will
rot want, to be coddled and spoon-fed
now. Having recovered their strength,
they will naturally expect to use it.
The question .--imply is—How?
To begin with, their disability can
often be lessened by what is called
"functional re-education." Hy special
exercises, with or without the nid ofj
the ingenious apparatus invented for
tho purpose, the muscles mutilated by
wounds and operations, and weakened by compulsory disuse, can recover
some of their strength und become
oi.ee more accustomed to exertion.
Then, by "vocational re-education,"
the men can be enabled to return to
their original trade; or, when that is

impossible or undesirable, they can be
helped to fit themselves for another
occupation, There is no intention, by
the way, to provide re-education for
men who do not need it.
The Parliamentary Committee decided that the eost not only of pensions and artificial limbs but also of
this vocational braining should be
paid by the Dominion Government.
The Military Hospitals and Convalescent Homes Commission, with Sir
James Lougheed at its head, has already given a great deal of consideration to the matter, and has taken
steps to organize the training required in many parts of the country.
The complete establishment of the
system may be expected very soon,
for the government, by Order-in-
Couneil, lias just adopted a report of
the Military Hospitals Commission, of
which we are enabled to give this
summary:
The report begins by explaining (hat
the Commission aims at benefiting
not only disabled members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, but also
disabled Reservists of the British and
Allied armies who were bona fide residents of Canada when the war
broke out.
The Commission has received the
assurance, it tells us, of the active
co-operation ut' the provinces and
various municipalities in carrying out
such a policy. Technical Schools, Agricultural Colleges and other public
institutions have agreed to receive
disabled men for training, and many
offers have also been received from
private commercial establishments lo
provide training and subsequent employment when the men have become
proficient.
The period of I raining for a new
vocation will vary according to (lie
previous education and industrial
history of each individual. The cost
of tuition will vary in consequence,
and also owing to the fact that iu
many cases the tuition will be free
or the fees nominal. The training will
be free to the men in all cases. If
there is any charge, it will be paid
by the Dominion government.
The Commission has already undertaken the provision of training in general subjects and elementary vocational work for all men under treatment in the various hospitals and
convalescent homes operated by the
Commission, irrespective oi' whether
or not such men will later be subjects
for vocational training leading to new
occupations. In a few cases, arrangements have also been made for
that special training.
The Commission was not able, however, to put into' operation a general
scheme of vocational training until a
scale of maintenance could he arranged for the men undergoing the
training and for their dependants.
The Commission has therefore prepared a scale under which a small
sum for personal expenses will be
granted to the men undergoing train-
Lng, while provision on a sliding scale
is made for married men aud their dependants, and for those unmarried
men who have persons legally dependent upon them.
Here is the scale which the Commission has now been empowered to
establish. It will be understood
throughout that "maximum age"
means 16 for a son and 17 for a
daughter:—
1. A single man. with pension, living in, receives free maintenance; that
is, board, lodging and washing.
2. A single man, with pension, living
out,—GOe. a day.
3. A married man, wiih pension,
living in—free maintenance and #8 a
month, with the following additions:
For wife having no children, #35 a
month, less her husband's pension.
For wife and one child, if child i--
under age, #38; from live to ten
years, #39.50; from 10 to maximum
age, #4'J.5U; less in every ease, the
a mount of husband's pension and
children's allowances under the pension regulations.
For wife and two children, from
."Ml to #47 a month (less pension anil
allowances) according to age of
children.
For wife and three children,—#41
to #50 (less pension and allowances)
according to ages.
For wife and four children,—#47 to
#53 (less pension and allowances) according to ages.
For wife und five children,—#50 to
#55 (less pension and allowances)
according to uges.
For wife and six children,—$53 to
#55 (less pension and allowances) according to ages.
A wife with seven or more children
under the maximum age may be given
the maximum allowance of #55, less
pension and allowances.
All these allowances for wife and
children will be paid direct to the
wife, unless otherwise thought fit by
Ihe commission.
4. A married man living al home
will receive 60c a day. (This of
course is in addition to the allowances for wife and children.)
5. A widowed mother, it dependent
entirely upon the unmarried son who
is receiving training, und if the son
made an assignment of his pny to his
mother and also arranged for her lo
receive separation allowance while he
was on service, may be paid at the
same rate as the wife of a married
man with no children.
(i. The parents of a man undergoing training, if both are old and past
work, and entirely or partially dependent upon him, may also be paid at
that rate.
7. The guardian of a widower's
children (under the maximum age)
will be paid monthly:—for one child,
#10; for two, $17.50 j for three, $22;
and #3 for each child in excess of
three, with a maximum of #35.
Payments under these regulations
will be continued for one month after
the completion of vocational (raining,
whether the man has secured employment or not.
ll is clear thai Ihis system of allowances will enable many men to
take advantage of lhe training offered, by providing for their families
while the training is being given.
The President of lhe Military Hospitals Commission asks us to say Unit,
any further information desired by
our readers will lie gladly given on
application to the Secretary, at 22

VICTORIA TAXPAYERS' VIEWS
ON MISGUIDED PROHIBITIONISTS
As a citizen of Victoria who does the records oi the hired advocates

l.rest     here,   may I be pardoned for they know who pays them,   as    they

FINANCIAL.
First of all fron. the financial side
of the business do the people realize
what it means, do tbey know tbat
tbe present bonded indebtedness ot
the Municipalities of B.C amounts to
$95,573,201.54, n.eaning we have to

Then, again, compensation will involve a further fifty million at least
ot taxation. Wbo is willing to pay

TOlMHlsT BENEFITS.
Victoria anl the Island generally,
1 ave spent millions to get on the

questionable and illusory benefit?
PROPER PROHIBITION.
U we huve prohibition, let us have
it actually and uot the usual "blind
pig" and "private home booze drinking" brand. Make it actual and have
each individual pern.tt passed by a
board of three doctors for an ounce

presence uf at least one ol the doc,
tors.
RECORDS OF HIRED ADVOCATES.
Bo the good but misguided people
who    advocate    prohibition knuw of
certainly do not do it for nothing.
MOSES AND THE MINISTERS.
We have the sad spectacle before usij
of the n.embers of the Ministerial
Association who went, on record
vouching for Moses Cotsworth's state
ments in the "Crisis in B.C." and
who now have to own up they were
virtually Babes in tho Wood, led by
Moses into bis Mares Nest in the Bull
Rushes, and he, Cuckoo like, loft
then, to their fate, whilo he warbled
through the brush: "Buy my Crisis
endorsed by the parsons—only 5 cents
a copy." Even Dr. Cook could not'
find the North Pole to hide liehind
when the curtain went up.
MINISTERS   AND  THE    THEATRE
Then, again, not long ago we had
the ministers of all denominations in
Victoria pleading with the City Council to take over the Victoria Theatre
with a huge bonded indebtedness, at
this time in our financial troubles
and stress. Arc these the men to
counsel and guide the people in sane
and commonsense lines? They, no
doubt, mean well, but if things turn-'
ed out badly here they can always
get a convenient "call" to more fertile fields, leaving us to pay the bills.

TOBACCO   AM' CIGARETTES.
The(i, again, is it lair to take advantage of the absence dl our soldier
boys? Surely not; but does not this
suggestion con.e from the same class
of mail who did all he could to stop
the heroes of Canada who are fight-
Ing and bleeding for us in the trenches of Flanders from getting a supply of tobacco and cigarettes? Is this
fair?   Is this British?
LOTS TO DO.
Surely in this time of trouble and
stress it is not wise to raise such a
liiestiou, which means a bitter fight
by our people against narrow minded,
misguided theorists, who, if they
wanted to devote their energies to
real benefit ot the people of tho Empire have a thousand other ways ol
devoting their tune and energies,

ies, while wet Milwaukee justly enjoys the reputation of being "the
city of churches." Drunkenness exists
and its evils are great, though their
number has been monstrously exaggerated by the Prohibitionists. What
is to be done? Some cases of intemperance will occur till the end of the
world; far this earth is not a paradise. There will always be some vic-i1
tims ot human weakness and perversity. All we can and must do, is to
reduce drunkenness and its evils to a
minimum. Advt.

AT THE  THEATRES
"CHARLEY'S AUNT."
"A riot of clean fun" exactly describes this play, which appears at
the Empress theatre, Wednesday August 30, and which ran for four years
at the Globe theatre in London; and
when Londoners continue to laugh
and applaud a comedy for that
length of time, it must be "some
play." "Charley's Aunt" is a sure
enough play. In construction it is absolutely novel, and Its many scenes
are so full of action, its climaxes so
tense in unexpected surprises, that
its audiences are treated to laugh after laugh in a perfect maze of comedy

THE POOR MANS CLUB
The following letter    appeared in a
Victoria paper of recent date.
To H. 0. Brewster, Esq.
Sir,—During your tour you have
lepeatedly told your audiences that
it is your one intention to "smash
the machine," and iei a manifesto you
issued some twelve months ago you
declared your intention of doing the
same thing.
Surely, Mr. Brewster, you do not
think the public lack the intelligence,
of knowing that the Liberals have an
organization precisely the same as
that of the Conservatives, and know-!
ing this, as you must do, give me:
your candid opinion df a,man continually condemning the Opposition
having, as you state, so "rotten aj
thing" as a machine, yet hugging to
his bosom an organization precisely,
similar in his own party. In all kindliness, Mr. Brewster, is this tair? But
perhaps it is the Liberal machine you
intend to smash. It was generally believed that you were not well pleased
with the way that machine worked
when the Laurier Government was in
power. Rumor says that you thought
that you and some of your friends
were not getting your fair share of
the spoils. It also declared that upon
one occasion you went all the way to
Ottawa to see Sir Wilfred about it,!
taking "Honest John" (not your
bumble servant) with you to help
nlead your cause; also rumor states
you had two declarations in your
pocket to show Sir Wiltreed. It might

inr anything that 1 personally have
done at the Capital it will be the
people of the city of Vuucouver and
not Mr, Farris or the people o£ Revelstoke, The least thing that 1 cuu
hope for my young friend is that af-
ter he had lived 25 years in Revelstoke his reputation here will be as
good as mine is iu the city of Vancouver.
••InVancouver I have a majority of
4,0.90 to overcome iu the coming elec-
Uon, although it is true that the
great majority ot those votes were
waterfront pluggers from Seattle. I
have decided to stand for re-election
.here and nowhere else. Contrasted
With this attitude take the case dl
Mr. Brewster, the Liberal leader, who
.vith a majority In bis favor at the
bye-election of 2,tr00, is running in
two ridings In order to ensure tor
hin.self a safe seat. I have been oflered a safe seat in the province—for
there are many of them—but I have
-refused to accept the oiler and I will
stand or fall by the decision of the
I eople of my own city."
The idea of tbe Agricultural Credits Loan, the Premier explained, was
to distribute the money secured
among the "small fellows," the home
*-teader and th? settlers. A million
dollars had been secured and $60,000
of it had been put out in small parcels of il: 00 or less.
"The Liberals say it is aa election
dodge," said Mr. Bowser with a
smile. "If we left tbe money in the
hank it would draw interest at three
and a half per cent. We are paying
5.6:; per cent for it, and as a business government the only thing to
■do would be to let it out at a sufficient interest to cover administration
Therefore we are lending it to the
farmer at 6_ per cent. Every loan, ie
carefully investigated by tbe Agricultural Credits Con.mission before any
action is taken—for we don't want to
lend any money to the farmer who
does not need it and we don't want
t'i leiiel it to tbe man wbo cannot
pay it back.
The Premier referred to the character oil the loans to be made short
term and long term, and spoke incidentally of the composition of the
Board. The two directors were Mr.
William Duncan of Comox, Vancouver
Island, and Mr. William Bridge, reeve
of Richmond.
"Are those two bona tide farmers?"
talied out a voice from the audience.
"Yea, they are bona fide farmers, _
great deal longer on the farm than
you. my friend, by the tone of his
voice."
The Government bad also brought
down an act cancelling out those
areas which had been bought by the
men whom the Liberals called ''speculators, and which had not yet been
paid for. All that could be paid for
would be allocated to the intending
purchasers and the balance would be
reserved for the soldiers. The Returned Sddiers Aid Commission was in
communication with the authorities
at Ottawa, in order to discover whether to undertake a policy of community lettlemente for the returned men
Before the bye-election Mr. Brewster and Mr. Macdonald had claimed
that the land held by the "speculators" was the hest in the country,
tow that it had been taken away
from these people and was to be
awarded by the Conservative administration to thc returned soldiers, the
Liberals were claiming that the legislation making this change was a
"gold brick" for the returned soldier.
The Premier referred in detail to
the $24,000 appropriation secured by
Hon. Mr. Campbell for free assays
and for the granting of engineering
advice to the prospector, and the
$201,000 for the construction of roada
and trails to undeveloped mines. Mr.
Campbell would be developing this
grent industry alter September 14,
for the speaker was just as confident
that Mr, Campbell would be returned
as thnt he himself would be elected to
power once more.
The government had felt as well
that the question of women's suftrage
and of prohibition, as well as the
choice of legislators should not be
"decided behind tho backs ot the soldiers, and tbey had therefore given
them the vote, They wero doing It ln
a way that Mr. Brewster complained
of, the Liberal leader charging corruption. The charges, ill course, were
Invalid.
It seemed to bc the policy of the
Liberals to vilify and make charges
ra'ainst everyone In the government.
They always wanted to measure the
Conservative corn by their bushel.
"We don't propose to have any Yu-
tioner methods In this election,* declared  the  Premier  emphatically.
"How about plugging?" someone
Interrupted to nsk.
"There'll be no plugging either. We
don't win out fights in that way. I'd
rather go out of public life by the
honestly expressed wish of the people
than remain in power hy such methods as that." said the Premier.
What had Mr. Brewster done to facilitate tbis development work that
the government was undertaking? the
Premier asked. He would tell them.
Owing to a mistake, the returning
oflicer in Chilliwack, where the Conservative candidate had been, elected
hy acclamation at the last general
election, had returned his writ on the
llth day of March, L912-. Therefore
there was considerable doubt as to
whether the life of parliament expir-
ed on the 15th day of March, 1916, or
thc lirst of June. He bin.self had
been inclined to believe that it had
been the first of June.
Rather than have the credit of the
country affected, however, he had
gone to the Liberals in thc House
and explained to them what he had
lound in the Provincial Secretary's
oflice. Mr. Macdonald had made the
statement before the bye-election
that he would prove tbat the British
Columbia government was the most
corrupt government in the Dominion
of Canada. There had been discoveries of corruption in Manitoha, and in
the Liberal administrations of Alberta and Saskatchewan; the personnel
of the Legislature was lop-sided and
it was natural enough tbat the people in their then morbid state should
take some stock in these charges.
The speaker naturally thought that
Mr. Macdonald was honest in his
claim that he wanted to investigate
the record of the government, to
prove his charges. If they were found
to be true, the government should be
hurled from office. It was, the government had thought, the very acme
of the Liberals' ambition—to hurl
the administration out of power on
charges of corruption.
But on the Saturday before he had
called the Liberals into his office, the
other Liberal candidates in the city
of Vancouver had held a meeting
which both Mr. Brewster and Mr.
Macdonald had attended, and an inkling had there been given that the
candidates had come to know of the
great plugging conspiracy.
The Premier was suddenly interacted by a prolonged series of
"boos" from Mr. Jack Stuart, Dr.
Sutherland's campaign manager and
henchman, who bad for some time
not been able to get a word in edgeways. Hon. Mr. Bowser stood it for
o moment or two.
"That's the form of argument I've
received throughout the country from
Liberals," he declared at length.
"The electorate are intelligent people
They want to hear both sides and
"booing" is not going to affect the
dection."
"They did not want to investigate
the Conservative government, because
they did not have any evidence on
which to base their investigation,
and they did not want to be investigated themselves! That was the chief
reason why Mr. Brewster did not
want to remain any longer than the
llth of March.
''Another reason was that for party
advantage. The people were morbid,
they were depressed, and tbe government had been without opposition
for some time. If Mr. Brewster could
put an end to the House then we
would not have been able to put
through our programme of legislation. Liberals would have precluded
the possibility of presenting any aids
lo mining, any agricultural aide
measures, any workmen's compensation act. If Mr. Brewster had had his
way there would not have been any
workmen's compensation act at all.
(Applause).
Mr. Brewster would not listen to
my offer. If he could have defeated
the little three-line bill making the
expiration of Parliament on June 1,
Mr. Brewster would not have been in
the position dt having with his colleague to defend themselves like
criminals for the last month tbey
were in thc House. He now says tbat
the Courts would settle tbe length of
the life of parliament. He could have
settled it himself by agreeing to the
bill on March 14, and thus ensured
that the measures Tor the protection,
not only of the soldier but of hia
wife, from property seizure, the act
to give the soldiers a vote, and the
many other pieces of legislation for
the soldier would be absolutely impossible to doubt.
"He came to me and said that he
would not aecepe my offer, I stood
up In rry place in the House that afternoon and told Mr. Macdonald and
Mr. Brewster that they would sit
there whether they wished to or not,
till the flrst of June, And they woulA

says:

"I hope you have lots of luck with

How the Liberals could hope to retain the respect of soldiers fighting
for the Empire with the maudlin appeal to help deliver British Columbia
as they are helping to deliver Belgium, passes my comprehension:. To
compare the issue of Belgium with
the aspirations of a bunch ot pin-
headed Grit politicians is almost as
blasphemous as some of fakir Sunday's screeds.

by the Liberals,
Mr. Brewster's only irtterest, and
the Liberals' only interest in the soldier is to get their votes. That tbey
are afraid they won't get them, and
with mighty good reason, i? evidenefi-
ed by the hysterical yapping of the
morning Sun. From the very first
proposal to extend tbe franchise to
soldiers by the Dominion government,
the Sun has screamed against it. JL
still opposes this very just measure.
Who is better entitled to a voice in
the control of public affairs than the
men who are making tbe great sacrifices our soldiers at tbe front are
making?
Yet when the Dominion government
first proposed this measure the Sun
ridiculed it and said it was shameful
to introduce questions of politics to
soldiers fightins; for the empire. Now
the Sun's friends ask the soldiers to
save British Colun bia as they are
ledesming Belgium. In view of the
,vay the Liberals "saved" Vancouv.er
in March by import ine hundreds of
pluggers to vote aMsent soldiers'

not be bard to guess how the soldiers will save this province. It will
not be by turninc it over to the

Everything for Cood of Province
It is hard to get Mr. Brewster to
accept a regular issue orj any question of policy says the Vancouver
News-Advertiser. But he bas at last
made a declaration on one Question
by flatly condemning the Shipping
Act, which hus started up severul
shipyards, and will cause a score ot
shipi tei be built in this province
within a few months. This measure is
very generally approved. Thousands
of good Liberals would rather see
Mr. Brewster remain in opposition
and even disappear from public life
than havc the work stopped. Surely
Mr. Brewster's candidate in North
Vancouver will not thank his leader
for this declaration.
It Is not likely that the shipping
