Our Candidate Knows Only the
Win - the - War
(Special to The Miner)
Prince Rupert, Nov. 9:���Any
doubt that might have existed as
to   whether   Col.   C.   W.   Peck,
D. S. 0., commanding the 16th
Canadian Scottish at the front,
was to be a candidate at the
ft), thcoming election for the house
of commons was set at rest a few
ago by the receipt in Prince
Kupert of a cable from the colonel
to Fred. Peters, K. C. The
message was a brief one, but
right to the point, characteristic
ol Col. Peck.    It was as follows:
''Please announce publicly I
will support a union government,
conscription of men and resources
for the prosecution of the war.
Ihe old political parties have no
strings on me. Just now I am
employed on matters of overwhelming importance. I must
rely on my friends and my record
to elect me.   Sgd. Cyrus Peck."
With the retirement of both J.
E. Merrvfield, the former Conservative nominee, and the similar action on the part of S. M.
Newton, who has been in the
field as an Independent, the
situation is fast becoming one in
which Northern B. C. mav be
able to do credit to itself by
returning Col. Peck by acclamation.
There is no doubt as to how he
would represent the district. He
is an enthusiast, and throws himself heartily into everything he
undertakes. When he volunteered
for service at the front he entered heart and soul into his work.
His enthusiasm and his watchful
care of his men has gained him a
most enviable reputation at the
front, and lias had no small part
in the making of the Canadian
Scottish, which he commands,
one of the best regiments at the
front. Gen. Sir Arthur Currie,
commanding the Canadian forces
at the front, in a personal letter
received here in which he devotes attention to Col. Peck,says,
among other things, "He has
gone over the parapet many
times with his men, and simply
lives for the 16th Battalion. He
loves it as a mother loves her
only child, and mothers it the
same way."
All who know Colonel Peck
realize that the same devoted
attention which he gives to his
battalion will be given by him to
vhe constituency which he represents,
Items Of General Interest From
Hazelton and Surrounding District
Villistas dynamited a train near
Armanderiez, Mexico,killing over
100 passengers. Women were
stripped of their clothing and
valuables by the bandits.
London: As a result of the
coup d'etat in Petrograd, the
pro-German Lenine is firmly in
power. Kerensky is reported en
route to Moscow.
Recent developments foster the
belief that this week's revolution
was the result of a concerted
plan of Berlin and the Maximalists. It is feared the plot includes
the opening to Germany of the
road to Petrograd.
The women's 'Battalion of
Death'fought valiantly until overwhelmed by the revolting troops,
aided by the guns of warships.
A telegram from Amsterdam
says the Russian army on the
northern front has joined the revolt and is marching on Petrograd
London expects to hear from
Korniloff, believing that the radical pacifists will not be able to
hold power for long. It is Petrograd, and not all Russia, that has
fallen, but with all lines of communication controlled, it is difficult to get unbiased news.
A despatch from Stockholm
says Kerensky has been arrested.
Washington: The balance of
$114,000,000 loans authorized for
Russia may not be turned over
by the U.S. if th.e Lenine-Trotzky
peace factions gain complete control.
London: The conference of
British, French and Italian representatives has resulted in creating a permanent inter-Allied
military committee. The new
leadership of the Italian army has
been provided for, Gen. Diaz being appointed first in command.
Gen. Foch, French chief-of-staff,
and Gen. Wilson,sub-chief-ef the
British staff, will serve on the
general committee with General
Cadorna. Diaz is rated as one
of the ablest Italian leaders.
Rome: The Italians are still
holding back the Austro-Germans
by rear-guard actions, while the
main body of troops is estabfish-
itself in positions chosen for resistance. Bridges on the Livenza
river have been destroyed to delay
as much as possible the enemy
advance toward the Piave  river.
Berlin: Austro-German forces
have crossed the Livenza and,
overcoming the resistance of the
Italirfn rearguard, are advancing

over 600 pounds, and containing
many useful articles in addition
to cakes, tobacco, candy and
other dainties, have been despatched by the Soldiers' Aid to
the men who are representing the
Hazelton district on the battle-
front. The cost of the parcels
has been considerable, but voluntary subscriptions are coming in

all calls upon it, and resume the

For meat, lish is a peculiarly suitable substitute,because of the;
variety available and  the abundant sources of  supply   in   the
Dominion.    Beans have nearly the same food values as meat.
By a careful selection of other foods, the consumption of meat
may be very considerably reduced, especially by persons who arc
not engaged in heavy manual work.
