Women of France are Doing This:   What are YOU Doing?
Words are not powerful enough
to do even scanty justice to the
most heroic figure in the modern
world and of ages past���the women of France. Of the healthy
i men wholare not engaged in the
military service in France, practically all are engaged either in
transportation or the manufacture of munitions, leaving the
agriculture absolutely to the women. Not only this, but they
have stepped into the place of
work animals; you can go into
any section of France today arrd
see women of magnificent, noble
womanhood hitched to the plow
and cultivating the soil. All of the agriculture rests upon their shoulders. The home, always an
extremely efficient home, maintains a few old men, the wounded and the tubercular. Uncomplaining,
with high devotion, with an attitude that amounts almost to religious exaltation, the woman of France
bears the burden.

To My Supporter in Skeena Electoral District:
I regret that the duties in which
I am engaged have caused a delay in my writing to thank you
for supporting me in the late
I flatter myself to think that
few candidates have had a more
loyal, disinterested and patriotic
support than I have.
I have been elected as an lnde-
pendant and soldiers' candidate,
absolutely untrammelled by the
interests of any party or section.
Nobody has any strings on me.
It is true that I have agreed to
support the Union government
as far as its war policies are concerned.
Perhaps I have better chances
than you have in Canada of judging the great gravity of the situation in this war. As later events
have proved, things had come to
such a pass that we had to throw
every available man and all available resources into the war, or
we would be forced to pe partners in an ignominious peace,
leaving the greatest and most
unscrupulous tyranny the world
has ever known triumphant and
dominating the affairs of the
Although I have never believed
in conscription as a regular policy
still the Empire and our Allies
were in such straits that many of
us had to throw overboard our
old ideals and support some decis-
policy for prosecuting the war.
In this view I was in common
with a vastly overwhelming majority of the Canadian soldiers, as
their votes showed, and the reason that the Canadian soldiers so
strongly supported the Government was because the Government offered some definite policy,
while the Laurier policy was
shifting and uncertain. In other
words, not because they were
such keen supporters of Sir Robert Borden, but because he offered them something, whilst they
had no faith in Sir Wilfrid Laurier getting on with the war.
Another view also was the
great name Canadian troops had
won in the field. No one who
knows them will deny that the
Canadians are the finest troops
in Europe. They have an unrivalled record for bravery in
action, and steadiness, discipline
and fortitude in ordinary trench
warfare.     No young country of
