Number 26
BEGGING THE QUESTION.
"Wouldn't I be a fool," said Premier Bowser, or
words to that effect, on more than one platform
throughout the country (and we shall doubtless hear
it again), "to bring'pluggers' over from Seattle to
vote for Mr. Macdonald ?" And then Mr. Bowser pretends to believe that he has answered the charge that
the whole "plugging" business, on which he is principally running this campaign, was a Government contrived and Government managed conspiracy. The
flaw in Mr. Bowser's specious and shallow reply, as he
is perfectly aware, is that there is no proof that the
"plugging," whatever it amounted to, was done for
Mr. Macdonald. That was but part of the conspiracy
���the story put into the mouths of the Government
procured and Government coached witnesses (self-
confessed or convicted thugs, jail birds, and perjurers,
for the most part); and they told the story so badlv
that they said they came over to vote for the ' 'wet''
candidate���which every one knew was Tisdall, the
candidate of the Bowser Government, which stood
solidly with and for the liquor interests, until the great
scare thrown into the Government by the by-elections,
which brought about convulsions, out of which evolved
the pretended "dry" conversion with a suddenness
and over-doneness that was at once undignified and
ludicrous.
As the "pluggers" voted for the "wet" or Bowser
candidate in the by-election, it follows, therefore, according to Mr. Bowser's own reasoning, that he or his
agents procured and "personally conducted" the
"pluggers"'expeditions, of which there was lots of
corroborative evidence. To achieve the double purpose of the "plugging"���the election of Tisdall, if
possible, and the throwing of discredit upon the Liberals to try to partially offset the bad repute with the
country which the Government was keenly conscious
of, it was necessary to have chosen crooked instruments woik their way into the Liberal organization
under guise of doing ordinary, legitimate work, which
there is ample evidence was the only kind of work
that was paid for by the Liberals. The instigation, as
well as the pay, for any dirty, unlawful work those
instruments did���and it is evident they did do some���
came from outside the Liberal party ! Which explains
why Premier Bowser hastened, by the issue and extraordinary advertisement of a warrant, to scare Scott,
the pivot of the crooked work, out of the country, and
is evidently determined to keep him out���having recently refused Liberal requests to withdraw the warrant and co-operate in bringing Scott back - even if he
(Bowser) has to continue to comply with demands to
"send money," such as was lately received by Premier
Bowser's confidential man, John L. Sullivan, Vancouver saloon keeper, from Scott, in Seattle, under threat
that he (Scott) would otherwise "return and expose
the whole election scandal." This incriminating telegram, be it remembered, was published in the Vancouver Province, a Government paper, which also stated
that Sullivan had showed it to Bowser, who suggested
that the Province should send a reporter over to Seattle to get a "story" !
The only thing the matter with Premier Bowser's
reply quoted at the beginning of this article, to the
well founded, practically unanswerable, charge that
the whole "plugging" business was a conspiracy from
first to last of himself and his crooked instruments, is
the fact that that reply is based upon a deliberately
falsified premise���that the "plugging" was done for
M. A. Macdonald���so as to work out to a false conclusion. Straighten out the premise so as to accdrd with
the clearly indicated fact���that the "plugging" was
done for C. E. Tisdall, the Bowser and "wet" candidate and Premier Bowser stands convicted by his own
argument, as well as by all the overwhelmingly co-
roborative and converging evidence, of having done
the very thing that, with such affected and sham innocence, like the cat that stole the cream, he pretends
to deny having done. It will be noticed that he does
not directly deny, but sets up a knowingly false premise to do the denying and lying for him.
Mr. H, H. Stevens, Dominion member for Vancouver, or Burrard, as it is called, has been "doinjr his
bit" for Bowserism in the present campaign, lie
answered an S. 0. S. signal by Minister of Lands
Ross, kicked out of Fernie and trying to woo Prince
George, and made no less than eleven speeches for the
Bowser political refugee. At home, Mr. Stevens, is a
devout and most unctuous prohibitionist, but, like Rev.
Mr. Boulton in Burnaby, he "cut the prohibition
bunk" completely out of his Prince George addresses
- having failed even to mention the prohibition referendum. He got a straight pointer, like Mr. Boulton
aguin, it is said, thai the liquor interests should not be
aii agonized, and, ditto, ditto, he took the hint.
WESTMINSTER'S  NEXT MEMBER.
In its exaggerated "write-up" of Mr. Thos. Gifford,
representative of New Westminster in the Provincial
Legislature for the past fourteen years, the Columbian
lavs stress upon the alleged fact that Mr. Gifford is a
man "depended upon by fellow members and by Ministers," who "really has made good," who "hasn't to
make a reputation; he has it," and refers to Mr. Gif-
ford's opponent in this election as "the man who is:
unknown, the man who will be helpless to do anything
for his constituency in opposition and who could do
little as a supporter of a government."
It is not necessary and we do not intend to say anything derogatory to or in disparagement of Mr. Thos.
Gifford. The Columbian has more than done that, as
much by what it has said as by what it has failed to
say in its supposed recommendation of Mr. Gifford to
the electors. Mr. Gifford is a good citizen, and we
believe incapable of knowingly doing a dishonorable
act. But he is incapable of other things as well. He
is without essential qualifications as a public man, and
lacking these, among which is the ability to discern
and fathom the guiles and wiles of designing men, he
is just the man to be made use of, as he has been
made use of, by the shrewd and unscrupulous politi-
MR. DAVID WHITESIDE.
cians with whom, unfortunately, his political life has
been cast. Of course, he could be "depended upon by
Ministers," and by "fellow members," who were
practically all in the same relation to Ministers. That
is what he was ��� there for. That is why no more
sophisticated or independent minded Conservative has
been permitted to obtain the party nomination in this
city, He has undoubtedly "made good" for somebody, through the Ministers who could "depend upon
him"���for Mackenzie & Mann and Foley, Welch and
Stewart, for instance. And he has a political "reputation"-of a sort, for which he is not personally responsible���made for him by the Ministers who "depended upon" him to do as he was told. In return, he
got what he asked for���in the ordinary way of necessary local appropriations. The same process was repeated in other constituencies. The old game of trying to bribe the people with their own money, while
the bribers were playing the devil with the country's
larger interests.
We are glad that Mr. David Whiteside, Liberal
candidate for New Westminster, whose true portrait
we present herewith, has not had a "reputation" thrust
Upon him such as the local Bowser organ {attributes
to Mr. Gifford. We are glad that he has not "made
good" in the same way. Of course, he has not had
the opportunity, as we are told Mr. Gifford has had.
But. he has the qualities and qualifications that assure
that he would and will "make good" in h very differ-
on I way. He thoroughly realizes that the taking
"tithe of mint and anise and cummin" for his constituency is among the lesser and meaner duties of a representative. These he will do, as a mere incident, as
a matter of course���not as receiving a bribe or hush
money on behalf of his constituents.     At   the  same
HERE AND THERE.
The notorious Bob Green, a member of the McBride-Bowser Government in its hey-day, but who
found it better for himself and the Government to get
out and grab the Federal representation for Kootenay,
has been trying to assist his old pals in this campaign,
in the Kootenays. He has had a very mixed reception,
at some meetings not being able to get a hearing at all.
The little fellows that float around the machine say,
"If you beat Bowser, you beat Borden." My reply is,
' 'If it is necessary to keep Sir Robert Borden in nower
in order to pick dry the bones of B. C, Sir Robert
Borden will have to go." It will be found, however,
that Sir Robert Borden is in power when Bowserism
is dead and buried. "���Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper in
speech at Victoria, last week.
The Government papers, the local paper included,
are being paid so much an inch to carry great double-
column concoctions of anonymous, irresponsible campaign slanders, composed of absolute falsehoods or distortions of the truth, for which no one can be held
responsible. The one headed "Good-bye, Sun," is a
sample, and illustrates, incidentally, the ardent and
dangerous desire of the Bowser Government and party
to be rid, at all costs, of any criticism of their acts,
either in the "House or through the press. It was by
almost achieving that desire that they reached the
dark depths to which they have descended, but the
light has been turned on and they will not be permitted to drag the country down.
"Hearst Ministers' 'trim' for votes. Panic over
Toronto seat shakes policies. Anything now to win.
Pleadings and promisings tumbling from every Government platform. Some startling changes wrought
over hydro and nickel." These headings, from the
Globe just prior to the recent unfortunate bv-election
for the Hearst (Conservative) Government in Toronto,
might, with a very few changes, have been written as
a snap-shot outline of the political situation in this
Province. For "Hearst," read "Bowser;" for "Toronto," "Vancouver;" for "Hydro and "Nickel,"
"Prohibition and land policies," and all that remains
to complete the parallel is the returns of September
14th next, which have been feebly forecasted and
symbolized by the startling reverse suffered by the
Hearst Government in Toronto. The only difference
will be there'll be no Bowser Government after the
returns of September 14th are fully in and declared.
time, he will not leave the other undone. He will not
omit "the weightier matters of the law���judgment
and mercy and truth." And he has the qualifications
and the essential character to well acquit himself in
these duties of a representative and to make the name
of New Westminster stand for something in the Legislature, besides that of a mere grubber for gain, without regard to the cost.
Mr. Whiteside, we are told by the Bowser panegyrist, is "unknown." Well, there are worse things
than to be unknown -to be too well known, for instance. But Mr. Whiteside is not altogether unknown
in British Columbia or in New Westminster. And he
will be better known, and will improve with acquaintance. In other words, he will "make good" in the
true sense of that much abused term. Born in Scar-
boro, Ont, in 1870, Mr. Whiteside received his legal
education in Toronto, graduating from Osgoode Hall
in that city in the year 1895. In December, 1899, he
came to British Columbia, and, shortly after qualifying
to practice law in this Province, entered into partnership with Mr. J. A. Macdonald. then leader of the Liberal party of British Columbia and now Chief Justice
of the Court of Appeal, under the firm name of
Macdonald & Whiteside, the firm's business being carried on at Grand Forks, B. C. Mr. Whiteside continued in partnership with Mr. Macdonald until the
latter was appointed Chief Justice. In September,
1910, Mr. Whiteside was appointed Registrar of Companies, and held that position until August, 1912,
when he resigned, to accept a partnership in the
firm of Whiteside (W. J. Whiteside -his brother) &
Edmonds, of this city. Mr. Whiteside's speeches reveal the fact that he has made a close study of the
political problems of the day, and is in every way
qualified to represent this city, and greatly to its
advantage, in the Provincial Legislature.
In the practically certain event of a new Government being in power as a result of the general election on September 14th, Mr. Whiteside would be a
tower of strength to that Government, either as a
member or supporter. And, in the exceedingly improbable event of British Columbia being cursed with
any vestige of Bowser rule* after that date, the presence of such a man as Mr. Whiteside in the Legislature would be more than ever necessary., Page i

AN EMBALMED EFFIGY.
The European despatches bearing upon the war related a weird and gruesome story, some weeks ago.
The aged Emperor of Austria-Hungary, Francis Joseph, who has lived well over the allotted span and has
been the dynastic and personal bond of the dual monarchy so long that he has become an Institution, inseparable almost from the exisfence of the State, was
reported to have succumbed at last, to the weight of
his years and accumulated anxieties as a result of the
war. To avoid, or at least defer, the panic which it
was feared might follow a knowledge of the fact, the
story went on, the demise of the monarch was carefully
concealed from the people, and his embalmed figure,
with the wonted imperial trappings as in life, displayed
in the palace balcony, to give assurance to the not too
critical that their Franz Joseph still lived.
(we have had the same sort of thjng served up ad
nauseam with regard to the late member for Delta) is
the kind of representative, multiplied by twenty or so,
that has made possible the scandalous carnival of exploitation, corruption, and extravagance that have
been the outstanding features of Provincial administration for years past -each representative digging in
for his own constituency, chiefly in many instances for
his own little coterie, with the implied, if not express,
understanding that the Government should have a free
hand to do as it liked with the larger and vital interests of the Province, so long as it made the members
"solid with their constituents" and enabled them to
help their friends. That is the kind of representative
and the kind of Government they go together (hat
the people of British Columbia, including New Westminster, Delta, Dewdney and the rest, have made up
their minds shall go. together, on September 14th next.
The uncanny story, apparently, was not true; but
it would seem to have served the purpose of providing
a valuable suggestion to the esteemed local Columbian
in its extremity���trying to galvanize a dead party and
give a semblance of life to a dead candidate politically,
bv exhibiting a grotesquely embalmed and stuffed
effigy of that candidate in the editorial balcony or
show-case, so to speak, of the paper. From the embalmed figure of the "last of the Hapsburgs" in the
Imperial balcony at Vienna, in awful stillness acknowledging the acclaim of his subjects, to the straw-and-
old-rag-stuffed effigy of our habitual and hardly less
silent ex-member, lying solemly in state in the cockloft of the Columbian's somewhat overheated imagination, is surely more than a step���a jump ! -from the
sublime to the ridiculous. The best friends of the
modest Mr. Gifford, gazing at the stuffed and stilted
specimen evolved by the hard working political obituary writer of the local Bowser organ (a little poetic
licence, is permitted, of course, in post mortem literature) will be forced to exclaim, with the hayseed
viewing the gyasticutis at the circus: "There ain't
no sech animile!"
Why, good old Tom Gifford himself would need an
extension step-ladder, a reverse-action magnifying
glass, and an introduction, before he could recognize
his political lineaments and proportions in the preposterously swelled-head freak figure the Columbian set
up���in which ancient history ever, was levied upon,
and grotesquely falsified, and all the tail feathers
pulled out of the luckless khaki candidate for Delta
by the enthusiastic taxidermist to trim up Tom Gif-
ford's laughably top-heavy head-dress. Everything
that ever happened almost in and about New Westminster���and some things that didn't���were, in the Columbian's rhapso-drospical fervor, attributed to Mr. Gifford. There were just a few trifles that would appear
to have been overlooked, and we hasten to suggest
these: The Exhibition Buildings, the Public Market,
the Lulu Island bridge, the Colony Farm (with full roll
call of pure bred stock), the Lunatic Asylum, the B.C.
Penitentiary, the Carnegie Library, the Provincial
Gaol, and the Aurora Borealis.
Seriously, if the Columbian does not wish to make
the local Bowser candidate ridiculous���a sort of Pilgrim's Progress Calithumpian procession all by himself, carrying around a load of ascribed and imputed
political grabbings and getting out of all proportion
to the size of the victim or the facts of the case, it
ought to desist, and pull in its scarecrow. More seriously, this deformed political monstrosity of the Columbian's imagination, representing merely its ideal of
what a representative of New Westminster (or any
other constituency) in the Legislature ought to be, is
neither more nor less than a shameless advertisement
by the organ of its own and its party's hopeless political depravity. The Columbian's dummy is just the
sort of representative the "rubber-stamp" Legislatures
of the past decade or so have been chiefly composed of
���just the stamp of representative the one-or two-man
Government, with the gang of exploiters and grafters
behind it, wanted, and took care.to get! -small men,
obsessed with the mole-eyed idea that their sole duty
as representatives of the peoi le is lo grub and grovel
and grab for the little things that particular constituencies are entitled to, and barter their political souls
for these, while their complaisant and conscienceless
masters are playing the big game over the heads of
the grunting rooters, with the resources of the Province and the liberties and vital interests of the people
as the counters.
ITALY AND ROUMANIA.
Sunday last witnessed two important political
events destined to have immediately not less important military consequences���in the development of the
great war. First in order, being announced Sunday
morning, but not in importance, the formal declaration
of war by Italy against Germany, thus ending the
anomaly, which has subsisted for over a year, of being
nominally at peace with one power, and that the principal, while at war with an ally of that power. The
second event, proclaimed the evening of the same day,
was the long expected, oft foretold, at last realized,
definite and deliberate entrance of. Roumania into the
war, on the side of the Entente Allies. Germany retorted by immediately declaring war on Roumania, but
that doesn't count.  s
Italy's action marks an end of reported German influences at the Quirinal and signalizes the complete
solidarity and co-operation of the Allies on all fronts.
The accession of Roumania means half a million of
well equipped fresh troops thrown into the balance
against the Central Powers, with two or three hundred thousand more eventually available. Politically,
morally, and strategically, by reason of Roumania's
geographical position, as bearing particularly upon impending great developments in the Balkan theatre of
the war centreing at Saloniki, it means probably
more than can be easily imagined, looking ahead a
little: The falling into line of Greece, in all likelihood, already indicated; the break-up of Bulgaria, and
the collapse of Turkey, soon; with who knows what
early consequences to sorely pressed and harrassed
Austria-Hungary���and then "On to Berlin !"
We may not and should not indulge in too sweep-
ingly optimistic anticipations and predictions. The
Wild Boar of Germany will yet slash fearfully with his
tusks before being taken in his lair. But the flowing
tide of victory is now fairly with the Allies. Nemesis
is hot on the trail at last
HERE AND THERE
The News-Advertiser of Aug. 31st, over a London
despatch "from a staff correspondent," displays this
head: "Soldiers poll heavy at Bramshott Camp. 1700
votes recorded in three days. Mr. F. W. Welsh spends
a busy week."   Naturally.
The Government are not doing any promising in
this campaign���they are running it strictly on their
record, declared one of the Government sponsors, ihe
other day, evidently because both statements are as
far as possible removed from the truth. The very
keynote of the Government's campaign, which Premier
Bowser struck at the outset, early in June last, when
speaking in Nanaimo, as reported by the Government
press, was promising of the most reckless and wholesale description. Here it is: "He invited the residents of Nanaimo to urge anything they would like
done, and, if the Government could conscientiously do
so, they would be very pleased to carry out the suggestion." That sort of thing has been repeated, with
variations, all over the Province.
The very kind of representative that the Columbian
has laboriously constructed for our admiration as a
true effigy of the late member for New Westminster
Rev. Mr. Boulton, Bowser candidate in the South
Vancouver-Burnaby riding, has already begun to ex*
emplify the truth of the adage that "Evil communications corrupt good manners." He started out, naturally enough for a ministerial (clerical, not political
sense) candidate, strong on prohibition; but rumor has
it that he was roughly told by influential local "wet"
interests closely affiliated with the Bowser party to
"cut out that bunk !" if he wanted to get. elected.
Rumor must have beep correct in this instance, for
the "bunk" has been "cut," and the very Rev. Mr.
Boulton is applauded ostentatiously by the publicans
now at his meetings, which are not noticeably "dry"
any more. He has begun to take a little slack rope on
the patronage evil question, which he declares, rightly
enough, must be abolished, but he'll be brought up
with a round turn there, too, pretty soon, if he tries
to stay in the Bowser corral.
With the return to the Coast of the two big political B's ���Brewster and Bowser���the centre of gravity,
ikewise the storm centre, in the political sphere, has
shifted to this "neck of the woods," and there will be
"something doing every minute" now till The Day���

September 14th���only thirteen (there's that thirteen
again) fateful days hence. Bowserism might better
save its breath to say its prayers; but it will doubtless
continue to make the welkin ring with harsh and discordant cries, misrepresentations, and imprecations,
and in the end will have to be strapped to the chair
and sent to the "drop." Mr. Bowser, the News-Advertiser says, will speak five times in Vancouver, besides rushing up to Lillooet Saturday, Kamloops Mop-
day (doesn't say whether he'll meet Sullivan there
again to frame up some more "plugging"), Chilliwack
Tuesday (where he'll tell 'em again about "going
down with flags flying"), and back to Vancouver, to
"end," as the N-A. dismally forebodes, "with a
double header," There's no doubt of it. It will be
awful.
Our own and inimitable Joe Martin is back in Vancouver again, after a "flying visit" to London town,
jollying his East St. Pancras constituents, and warming his seat a few minutes in the House of Commons.
He informed an Eastern Canadian newspaper inters
viewer that he had come back to look aftei his Cariboo
candidacy in the Dominion House (nothing like having1
two strings, etc.), and further the aquiline-beaked
and eagle-eyed one demonstrated anew his political
shrewdness by declaring: "I can not see anything
but defeat for the Government in British Columbia."
To a Province reporter who invited him to talk on arriving in Vancouver, the other day, the candid Joseph
exploded as follows: "The appointment of Mr. F. W.
Welsh was rotten," and he said this with emphasis.
"It should never have been made and I am surprised
that it ever was made. I am sorry that Welsh was
ever sent to England. I do not paean to say that
Welsh will do anything wrong -Sir Richard wil! see to
that��� but he should not have been sent there in view
of what has taken place out here." Sir Richard would
better have justified "fighting Joe's" good opinion of
his pious intentions if he had abated the scandal by
refusing to recognize the "rotten appointment," instead of allowing the slimy and "Soapy" one to spend
"a busy week" plus some more among the soldier voters of Bramshott and other camps. \C��>

Mr. H. V. Lyon, of Vancouver, opened the meeting with a short stirring address, concluding by citing the historical
case of a great Polish general who had
sacrificed his son, captured and put in
the forefront of the enemy's battle line,
on the ground that he was a Pole before
he was a father. Mr. Lyon exhorted the
electors to remember on Sept, 14 that
they were citizens of British Columbia,
of Canada, before they were Conservatives, Liberals, or Socialists, and 'vote
accordingly.
Mrs. J. (). Perry, of Vancouver, followed, for woman suffrage. Referring
to the time limit of twenty minutes accorded her, Mrs. Perry remarked that
she would have to talk like a sewing machine (laughter I, the importance of the
subject called for an hour and a half at
least. She would pass over the chivalric
appeal altogether and confine her remarks to the practical side. She candidly admitted that women wanted the
vote to overturn things, and they needed
overturning���a fact which the speaker
proved to tlie satisfaction of her audience
before she got through. Five years ago,
Mrs. Perry said, she had worked and
spoken against woman suffrage herself,
but she had gone into social service work
iu Vancouver and had got her eyes opened. In this connection, she told some
harrowing tales of the debauching of
young girls, aud the light punishment

fearful wrongs and todemand a remedy.

Everything points to the calling off of the public,
the universal railway strike in the U.S.
for an eight-hour day, slated for iMon-
day. President Wilson has been busy
and Congress is framing an emergency
eight hour measure. The strike would
tie up everything and starve the big
cities.
The funeral of the late Capt. Eden
James, who died suddenly,' last week,
was held, Saturday afternoon, from Bo-

Rev. Canon Hinchcliffe officiated. The

had lost sight of the life issues. The
element of paternity was absolutely lacking in the government.
Mr. David Whiteside, who was the
next speaker, said he had been much
impressed by Mrs. Perry's eloquent and
moving address, and, if he had not long
been a convert to woman suffrage, he
would have been after hearing Mrs. Perry's address. One of the planks of the
Liberal platform, Mr. Whiteside noted
in this connection, was woman suffrage.
Another was abolishing the abominable patronage system, which Bowser
said couldn't be done. Strict control of the capitalization of incorporated
companies was another of the great and
most urgently neeifed reforms the Liberals would make. As things were, a
man with assets worth no more than $5
could incorporate a company with a capital of S'5,00(1,0(1(1 and unload his stock on
Mr. Whiteside cited many
notorious instances of the criminal
wrongs that had been done in this way
in British Columbia, such as the Dominion Trust, Canadian Collieries, etc., under the utter absence of control of incorporated companies by this Government.
And yet we heard the parrot cry of Government apologists that the Liberals had
no policy. Another reform which the
Liberals would inaugurate would be to
make the Auditor-General independent
of the Government, and Mr. Whiteside
gave recent examples where the Auditor-

The report has been unofficially confirmed that it is the plan of the Canadian
military authorities to brigade four of
the battalions now in British Columbia,
of which there are five, and place them
under Col. Tobin, who has returned
from service at the front. The latter
thus would have a general supervision of
the rest of their local training and would
take them to the Old Country.
The North Vancouver Council has
adopted the report of its committee of
investigation into the recent burglary of
the municipal vault iu the City Hall,
whereby $10,000 in cash and securities
(about $4,000 cash ) was stolen. The report recommended the dismissal of
Treasurer Humphreys and his three assistants, Mr. Hope, Mr. Shepherd, and
Miss Nelson, on account of contributory
negligence, apparently, dismissal to take
effect gept, 30th next.
The final Up Country meeting in the
Liberal interests was held by Messrs.
Brewster and Macdonald at Vernon,
Monday night, and was a great success
for the Liberal cause, contributed to by
the efforts of some disorderly Government hecklers. In answer to an inquiry,
Mr. Brewster declared himself in favor
of the suggestion to raise British Columbia's share of the Canadian Patriotic
Fund by taxation, so that everyone
would pay his share.
Citv   Market.
There was another very fair market
tO-day, with meats light, as usual this
lime of year, aud prices ranging the
same as last week. Poultry was in large
supply again, exceeding the demand,
with the result that prices declined a
little, broilers selling at 14c to 17c and
hens 14o to 16c, Ducks went begging
at 13c to 15c. Eggs maintained their
price, at 36c wholesale, 40c retail. Butter, dairy, retailed at 35c to 40c. Potatoes registered a drop, to 90c per sack,
#16 per ton. In fruit, plums, of which
there was a fair supply and poor demand, brought 50c to 75c per crate, and
apples, whicli were in good supply, sold
readily at 80c to $\ per box. Some nicest nnvberries, everbearing variety, were
snapped up at 15c per boje.
appreciative terms of the address of Mrs
Perry, and reminded the  audience   that
woman suffrage hail  repeatedly come up
in the House for years past aud had  always been voted down   by the   Government.     The  Liberals   would   enact   it,
however,   after   the   general    election,
whether the referendum carried or   not.
Speaking  of   the  great war, Mr Oliver
remaaked that there equally important
duties   at home.     This was uot a party
fight that the Liberals  were   leading   so
much as a fight for   political    rieht   and
justice.    If the Government had carried
out the Conservative platform adopted in
convention of the Conservative party, he
(Mr. Oliver) would not be in this   light.
But this was not a Conservative Government aud never had represented the true
Conservatives of Britisli Columbia.    Mr.
Oliver then recited telling figures of  the
Government's financial and railway maladministration; and  concluded   by mentioning some of the things   the   Liberals
would do when returned to power   They
would lop off two or   three millions   annually of extravagances and unnecessary
expenditures,   (in this connection, Mr.
Oliver showed that this Government had
increased salaries from $363,000 to  51,-
700,000 and "miscellaneous" from $161,-
000 to #3,900,000.)     Then   they   would
promote   production,    which   had   been
neglected.    They would give the women
H vote.    They would give a  clean   election law', and make    "plugging"   absolutely impossible.    They would give direct  legislation,   the   referendum,   and
proportional representation, which would
give every party in  the  Province   repre
sentation in the Legislature according to
its numbers. (Applause.)

DEATH OF CAPT. PEELE
One of Best and Widely Known Pioneers of New Westminster Passes
Away, at Aro of Seventy-five ��� A
Mllitar    Funeral.
New Westminster  will  long  miss the
familiar   figure    of     Captain   Adolplms
l'eele, removed   by   death, on   Saturday
afternoon last, after   nearly half  a   een
tury's continuous residence in ��� the  city,
he will be greatly missed, have hung
breathlessly on the May Day weather
"probs" of Capt. Peele.
The old Ilyack Volunteer Tire Brigade
had no more energetic or enthusiastic
member than the late Capt. Peele, and
he mustered and captained the firing
squad of the Ilyack Anvil Battery's annual Royal Salute on the Queen's Birthday, from the pioneer days dowu to
date, being at his post as usual on Victoria day last May, when "movies"
were taken of this interesting pioneer
survival.
Born at I,ong Sutton, Lincolnshire,
England, on August 21, 1841, and receiving an excellent education in the
Old Country, with a special view to his
profession as chemist and druggist, Adolplms l'eele came to British Columbia in
1S62, landing in Victoria, where he remained for a little over seven years,
doing special reportorial work during a
portion of that time on the Victoria Colonist, under D. \V. Iliggins as editor.
In 1S70, the late Capt. Peele removed lo
New Westminster and went into business
as a chemist and druggist, from which
he did uot retire until 1892, He took a
part in tne organization of the first volunteer rifle company in Briiish Columbia
and was captain of the New Westminster
Rifles, Canadian militia, for many years,
and was one of a number of brilliant
target marksmen of the early days.
As Observer of the New Westminster
meteorological station, Capt. Peele was
known all over the Province, having
been provided with all the necessary instruments for a first-class station by both
the Dominion and United States services.
He had a most valuable collection of
meteorological observations for the Province, and was an authority on such subjects. In connection with the taking of
the Dominion census for 1891, the late
Capt. Peele was appointed am! acted as
Census Commissioner for a large portion
of the Province, and he served as both
Dominion and Provincial Return ing.Officer on several occasions, including the
first Dominion election in B. C, held at
Granville, now Vancouver.
Within a week or so of his death, the
late Capt. Peele wis around and active
as usual, but was suddenly prostrated oil

contra, that the tank is a considerable
asset to the Government, as it furnishes
water for irrigation and stable purposes;
but agreeing to remove same on condition that the city provide free water for
the gaol for purposes mentioned for ten
years, the estimated remaining life of
the tank, which, the letter states, was

later order of business.
From the City Solicitors, re John R.

Reports.
Aid. Bryson, chairman of the Finance
Committee, reported, recommending
that  the  tender  of   .Spring & Sibley at
$26, for overhauling the City Hall furnace and installing parts supplied by the
city, being the lowest, be, accepted.
Adopted.
Aid. Goulet, chairman of the Market
Committee, reported, recommending
that Engineer Stewardson and the Building Inspector be instructed to draw a
sketch of a market building for Lytton
Square, to be located 25 feet from the
Lytton Hotel, extending 80 feet on Columbia street to Front street, said building to be three storeys high.
Aid. Dodd objected to this report on
the ground that the Council had no authority for abandoning the Tenth street
site for the market. After explanations
bv Aid. Ooulet, Eastman, aud Jardine,
to the effect that the proposed plans for
Lvtton Square were tentative, that the
Council already had plans for Tenth St.,
and that the whole matter of final location of the new market buildings would
be referred to the ratepayers for settlement, objection was withdrawn, and the
report adopted.
Aid. Eastman, chairman of the Electric Light Committee, reported, recommending that the Citv Electrician be authorized lo change the slrect lighting
system from arc lamp to nitrogen lamp,
at an approximate cost of $1100; that the
Canada Products Ltd. be authorized to
erect two poles to whicli guy wire:; are
to be attached, said poles not to exceed
40 feet in length, to be placed in line
with electric light poles, and removed at
company's expense, when requested by
the city to do so. Adopted.

The Barber Shops Regulation By-law,
1916, was reconsidered and finally passed.
The Milk By-law, 1915, Amenement
By-law, 1916, was reconsidered and finally passed, with an amendment by Aid.
Dodd reducing the fee for one cow-
dairies from $1 to 50 cts. for every six
months.
The Shops Regulation By-law, 1916,
No. 2, was read a first time.
New Business.
Aid. Jardine, under this head, brought
up the matter of the daily newspapers
occasionally publishing Council businsss,
such as communications, before it J)ad
come before the Council, which was, he
said, not advisable.
On motion of Aid. Eastman and Aid.
Jardine, a motion was passed to the effect that hereafter communication's addressed to the Council be not shown to
representatives of the press until they
had been brought before the Council.
Aid. Eastman, at this stage, again
brought up the mtater of the "special
survey" of the city, which he showed
was full of errors, inaccuracies, vexatious
changes, and injustices, practically cancelling titles in many cases, wiping out
sub-divisions in some instances, and generally making il very expensive, in some
Cases impossible, to trace titles. He
moved, seconded by Aid. Bryson, That
the Mayor appoint a special committee
to interview Mr. Gwynn, Registrar of
Titles, with a view to ascertain what errors exist in the city map, and report.
Carried.
Moved by Aid. Dodd. seconded by Aid.
Goulet, That, as the Kingdom of Roumania has joined with the Allies in the
European war, the flag of Roumania be
hung with other flags in the Council
Chamber.    Carried.
On motion the Council adjourned (on
account of Monday being Labor Day)
until Thursday, 31st inst., at 2:30 p.m.
the Empire. The weekly drill for the
current season will start on the second
Monday in September, and the parades
will be under the supervision of efficient
and capable officers, all of whom hold
certificates of qualification for their respective ranks. The regiment has in its
stores khaki uniforms and equipment for
four companies, which will be distributed
to recruits after having been attested and
the roll signed.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we. appeal to
you for your assistance and sympathy in
filling tlie ranks of the 104th Regiment
to at least peace strength, and we are
sure, when you think it over, you will
appreciate the necessity for the success
of our campaign, and give us your best
assistance iu reaching the desired end."
CALL TO ARMS.
Local Regiment Appeals to Citizens to
Pill Up Its Ranks, Depleted by Recruiting for Overseas.
Following is the special appeal, briefly
noted in last issue, which we publish at
the request of Lieut.-Col. F. H. Cunningham, 0. C. 104th Regt. W. F. of C,
laying before the public and especially
the citizens of New Westminster, on behalf of the officers, non-commissioned
officers, and men of the 104th Regiment,
"the necessity for and desirability ol increasing the ranks of the regiment up to
at least peace strength." The appeal
continues:
"The necessity for this appeal is owing to the lact that the call for duly was
responded to so freely by the members
of the regiment that its ranks have been
practically depleted. lu these stirring
times every man capable of bearing arms
should at least know the rudiments of
drill and the requirements of a soldier,
thus qualifying, should occasion require,
for service in the defence of country and
home. Unlike the countries situated in
the war zqne, we have been immune
from any of the disastrous effects of war,
and consequently may have overlooked
the necessity for preparedness, which is
so essential to success.
"There are a great number of men
who, whilst conditions will not permit of
them taking an active part on tlie battlefield, can at least do their share by joining the ranks of the. home regiment.
The boys of the city are doing "their
bit" for the protection of Mag and home
in a far olT country, and surely the least
that can be done to encourage them is
that all should ally themselves with some
military organization, anil thus coiive)
to them that those at home are doing
their share and lilting themselves for
such assistance as may be necessary.
"In tin- campaign for recruits which is
now being organized, we appeal to the
cm|>lovei s of labor, tlie City Council, anil
an especial nppeal is made to the business men of the city for their personal
assistance and sympathy in building up
the city's own regiment, We also appeal
to the various ladies' associations established in our midst, as it is felt that, if
their sympathy is obtained, success is
assurred.
"Our boys in the trenches are working
an average of one hundred and sixty-
eight hours per week, and all we ask of
the boys at home is two hours of their
time each week, wliich can be piofitably
and pleasantly spent iu military exercise. It should be au honor lo lie enrolled in the strength of the 104th Regiment, Westminster Fusiliers, a regiment
which is allied with the "Minister Fusiliers," with a record for gallantry and
bravery second to none iu  the historv of
