Without a correct observance of perspective, no
picture can have truth, says an authority. While the
word has a clearly defined technical meaning- in the
delineatory and pictorial arts, even that meaning bears
an intimate relation to the broad or general significance of the term���proper or just proportion, appropriate relation of parts to one another and to the whole
view or object. The apprehension by the mind of any
subject or thing is neither more nor less than a mental
picture of that subject or thing. Words are but the
strokes of the pencil or brush limning the picture to the
mental vision. All of which are truisms, of course.
But it is well sometimes to get back to first principles by the humble aid even of truisms.
There can be no doubt that perspective and its advantages���and disadvantages in certain circumstances
���are well understood and keenly realized by the leading genius of British Columbia's Government, at such
a time as this, when it is necessary to impress upon
the individual and collective mind of the Provincial
electorate such a picture as shall lead to a favorable
view on the Government's claims for a re-endorsement
at the polls in the present general election contest.
That the leading spirit of that Government, the fra-
mer of its policies and the deviser of its
campaign tactics, also most thoroughly appreciates
���and enjoys - the force of the dictum that,
"without a correct observance of perspective, no picture can have truth," is doubly apparent.
Truth to tell, truth is the very last thing that this
Government or its leader could afford in any picture of
the same flashed upon the canvas for the informi ig of
the public mind, at such a critical time, when the fate
of the Government and its head are trembling in the
balance. Therefore, perspective has been deliberately eliminated. Thirteen years is a pretty fair period
of time, as Governments go, in which to build up a
healthy and illuminating perspective by which to view
and judge that Government. But that well painted
and involuntarily true, if fearsome, picture of the
Government's real character has been turned to the
wall, and a crude canvas set up in its place, splotched
with hysterical "futurist" symbols made in the last
few months, after the leader of the Government had
"felt the halter draw" on account of the bad performance of the past thirteen years���and, on this eleventh-
hour, perspectiveless drawing of hastily scrambled
makeshifts and promises, instead of on the sinister
masterpiece of a political lifetime, the electors are
asked to gaze, forgetting the other, and to judge this
We are too apt in these days of stress and rush to
forget the past and allow ourselves to be hurried into
passing hasty judgments from present, surface
impressions, persistently superimposed. But British
Columbia has suffered too deeply and profoundly in
the past, her future has heen prejudiced and burdened
too recklessly and lastingly, by the regime which has
had absolute control of her destinies for the past decade and a half nearly, for any such superficial and untrue basis of political judgment as the Governmentare
frantically trying to interpose between the electorate and the real picture which the record of the Government has drawn, to be accepted by the people for
any such impudent imposture to be tolerated for a moment. No, they will tear away the mask and let the
true picture���of extravagance, waste, alienation, jobbery, betrayal of public trust and public moneys, as
reproduced in part by John Oliver at Mission, two
weeks ago- stand forth in all its naked hideousness,
and render judgment accordingly.
"Bowser, Reid & Wallbridge, solicitors i'or the I'.
G. E.," will be able to devote their undivided attention
to the P. G. E. and such daylight robbery concerns as
the late Dominion Trust, for which they were also solicitors, after Sept. 14th, when the senior partner will
be sent about his business by the people of British
Columbia, who have been paying him to play their interests into the hands of his private und corporate
clients���and which he has done to the limit, in the case
of the P. G. E. particularly.
People who own automobiles and afterwards disown them, so to speak, will take warning from a recent Police Court judgment to get their names divorced
without unnecessary loss of time in the auto registry
from the number of their old machine. Because he
was the registered owner of an automobile, even although he had disposed of the machine three months
ago, Harry E. Lathrop, says a late news item, was
fined $10 and costs in Police Court last week for exceeding the speed limit on Kingsway. Lathrop had
omitted to have the registration against his name cancelled when he disposed of the machine and is therefore held liable under the law. It's hard enough to be
fined for exceeding the speed limit, but, when
somebody else had the "joy ride" at your expense ���
well, it's pretty tough!
Following the collapse of the deplorable insurrection in Ireland in May last, all Irish parties have shown
a commendable spirit of patriotism in co-operating,
with Mr. Lloyd George, who was entrusted by Premier
Asquith with the difficult and delicate task, to arrange, if possible, a modus vivendi for the settlement
of the Irish problem for the period of the war at
least. Early this month, a basis of agreement on these
lines was reached, which gave fair promise of fulfilling
the hopes of every well wishe, of Ireland and of the
Empire, in these crucial times, and which it was also
hoped might, through the probation of the war period,
lead to a permanent settlement of the long standing
and vexed Irish question.
Hefore the outbreak of the war, it will be remembered, an Iiish Home Rule Bill had become law, but
had not yet gone into effect, while serious trouble was
brewing in Ulster in anticipation of that event. To
the credit of Irishmen of all parties, the rude blast of
war unified Ireland, as every other part of the Empire,
instantantaneously, and all domestic differences were
left in abeyance for the time being. The activities of
a relatively insignificant irreconcilable faction, however, eventuated in the regrettable Dublin uprising-,
and its quick suppression, which led to the patriotic
efforts above referred to, in" which both Unionists and
Nationalists joined, to bring about a temporary settlement of the Irish question. This settlement, it was
proposed and practically agreed upon by all parties,
should take the form of an immediate application of
a temporary and partially limited measure of Home
Rule to Ireland the six Ulster counties being provisionally excluded from the operation of the measure,
which was to continue in force until one year after the
termination of the war, when the whole arrangement
would come under the review of the great Imperial
Conference which is proposed to be held to adjust the
future government of the Empire.
It was not without a good deal of give-and-take by
both leading Irish parties and their leaders that the
much desired settlement was brought to the very verge
of acceptance, and it is to be feared that the suspicions
and exactions of ultra -Toryism Aitside of Ireland altogether are more or less chargeable with the apparent
unfortunate breakdown of the so promising negotiations, at the last moment, as this week's advices from
London have announced. The chief stumbling block
which has wrecked an agreement is stated to be the
retention in the Imperial Parliament, during the temporary Home Rule term, of the present full number of
Nationalist representatives, which was one of the provisions of the preliminary tentative understanding,
though the question of the status of the six temporarily
excluded Ulster counties has doubtless been a pregnant storm centre.
A serious, perhaps fatal to the Asquith Government, Cabinet crisis seems imminent at this writing.
A general election in Great Britain over the
Irish question���which, in itself, on such an issue,
would be a most deplorable source of division and
disquiet, at this critical time Imperially speaking-
would at present seem to be almost inevitable, though
it is to be hoped that better counsels may even yet
Contrary to their clearly expressed wish, the women of British Columbia have had a woman suffrage
referendum thrust upon them by the Bowser Government. Instead of a straightforward and manly recognition of their right to an equal voice with men in
choosing the representatives of the people, embodied
in a Government measure during the late session which
would have given legal sanction and effect to that
right so that the women of the Province1 would have
a vote to-day, not only for parliamentary representatives, but for the prohibition referendum in which they
are so vitally interested���the Bowser Government
churlishly denied them the right and sent the women
to go around the country as suppliants to the men to
accord them the franchise through a referendum.
That being the case, the question is, What are the
women of British Columbia going to do about it? They
asked for bread and were given a stone. Will they go
to work on the Government rock pile and try to grind
bread out of grit, or will they, David-like, hurl the
rock at the head of the insolent Goliath who spurned
them? The answer, we suppose, will depend a little
on the "previous condition of servitude" politically of
particular women or groups of women. Women of
( onservative affiliations, however, were outspoken
enough when urging their views upon the reluctant
Administration during the late session. "If the Government has any political sense," said a leading Conservative suffragist, Miss Helen Gutteridge, in April
last, "it will enfranchise women within the next few
Umpire Bowser has been to Cranbrook, and incidentally settled the little matter of two Conservative
candidates for one constituency there, by shelving-
Watts of Wattsburg and putting his official "OK"
stamp on Caven, the anti-prohibitionist and tough candidate, dubbed by the respectable element "a disgrace
to the party."   Quite appropriate !
Henry Holgate, the well known Montreal engineer,
has been visiting in Jamacia, and expresses the firm
belief that Jamaica and probably other West Indian
Islands will come into the Canadian Confederation, to
the benefit of all concerned. Mr. Holgate's acquaintance with the islands dates from the time when he
built thedxamway system in Kingston for the late
James Ross and the late Dr. Pearson, in 1898.���Financial Times, Montreal. It's to be hoped we'll get sugar
a little cheaper, anyway, when these islands "come
in," and incidentally Jamaica ginger���we can do without the rum!
The "most unkindest cut of all" was administered
to our own Joe Martin, lately, in the British House of
Commons, where he landed right-side-up, on a flying
trip from Vancouver, a few weeks ago, and immediately pasted a poser on the order paper for Premier
Asquith, which he had "thunkup" while going across,
to this effect: Whether the Prime Minister "has taken steps to ensure the continuance and permanence of
the present relations between the Dominions and the
United Kingdom, such relations consisting of a union
of hearts in Imperial matters and absolute self government in matters affecting the Dominions only."
This question provoked another, by a sarcastic supporter of Premier Asquith, in effect: Whether some
steps could not be taken to prevent the dumping of
"superfluous politicians" on the United Kingdom? Between ex-Premier McBride and ex-Premier Joe Martin,
of British Columbia, they are not going to allow the
British Empire to fall to pieces after the war��� if they
can help it!
The Cowichan Leader of July 13th (Indppendent),
referring editorially to a public meeting held at Duncan, week before last, addressed by Messrs. H.
C. Brewster, M. A. Macdonald, and Kenneth F. Duncan, the Liberal candidate for Cowichr.. _,ays: "The
Liberals in Cowichan awoke from a long period of
quiescence last Monday. The Opposition leader and
his henchmen received a hearty reception at what was
the largest political meeting for some years. The
tenor of their speeches was along the now well trodden
trail of denouncing the alleged wickedness of the McBride-Bowser Administration. Is there any substance
to the remarkable statements they submitted? We
fear that there is, and that ere long the taxpayers will
be brought to take interest in political affairs by the
stern method of being forced to pay for past misgov-
ernment. We have long held that an investigation
should have heen opened when an inadequate reply
was given by the Premier to the charges made in the
'Crisis in B. C.' It is gratifying to know that all three
speakers agreed that patronage must be abolished. No
matter what schemes are introduced for the betterment of Provincial life, they are damned from the
start by the blight of patronage. Any party which can
bring about this reform deserves support. The question is whether Brewster would succeed where Norris
has made headway, and where Borden failed ignomin-
weeks." Another declared that many women who desired the vote, and who had previously been ardent
Conservative workers, were transferring their influence to the Liberals, as the result of Premier Bowser
proposing the referendum after he had been emphatically assured by the suffragists that they did not desire the question to be decided in that manner. It
was also pointed out to the Government at that time
that referendum activities by the women would greatly interfere with Red Cross work.
Blind and deaf to everything except their own preconceived plans and purposes, the Government demonstrated that they "had no political sense at all," by
refusing woman suffrage and insisting on a referendum. The women, therefore, have the burden .laid
upon them of a suffrage campaign, when hearts and
hands arc full of necessary work in connection with
the war. Fortunately, though, they are not shut up
to the referendum they have another and a better
string to their franchise bow, in the explicit and unequivocal declaration, which has been a standing feature of the Liberal platform for years, that the Liberal party, on its return to power, will grant woman
suffrage. The most direct and consistent course, then,
obviously, is for the women to bend their energies for
the return of the Liberals to power, while a vote for
the referendum, since it will be presented with the
other ballots, should be cast by every voter as well. Page 2

Lloyd George has signalized his installation as responsible Ministerial head of the War Office by the
bold and exceedingly optimistic declaration that "British resourcefulness and British intelligence are going
to snatch victory in a few months." While qualifying this by the admission that it would be premature
"to survey the military situation and the prospects in
the middle of the battle���evidently referring to the
great forward movement on the Western front known
as the battle of the Somme���the new British War Secretary, who. as late Minister of Munitions, knows the
tremendous work that has been accomplished toward
victory in that essential, supports his optimistic forecast by the following summary: "Numbers and all
other resources are on our side. There was one fear
that years of training and thought on the part of a
great military power might be something insuperable.
Our men have demonstrated that it is not so, and that
British resourcefulness and intelligence are, as in fields
of commerce, in the past, when they have been able
to snatch victory out of what appeared to be commercial disaster, going to snatch victory again, in a few
months, from what appeared at one moment to be
something that was invincible."
Chastened and tempered as the British people, as
well as our Allies, have been by the long, hard, uphill
struggle of nearly two years, against tremendous odds
of preparedness, there is little fear that we or they
shall err, at this stage, by either presuming or relaxing in the slightest, from an excess of optimism as to
the immediate outcome. In fact, such anticipations,
fairly well founded as i\ would seem, not only on the
steady and irresistible advance of our own forces on
the Western front, but on the smashing blows of all
the Allies on all the fronts, will but serve to nerve all
to greater efforts to tighten and strengthen the
strangle hold that is now surely and remorselessly
closing in round the doomed German war forces,
both material and spiritual, for the emancipation of
Europe and the world, including Germany, from
their fiendish menace.
The Liberal conference at Ottawa has borrowed a
plank from the policy of the British Columbia Government. The conference recommends a system of farm
credits such as that in which this Province leads the
whole of North America. There is little doubt that
British Columbia's example will be followed by other
progressive provinces, if not by the Dominion.���The
foregoing is from the News-Advertiser, of course.
Wouldn't it scald you ! Charging the Liberal party at
Ottawa with borrowing what the British Columbia
Government stole bodily, a few weeks ago, when
scared to death by the by-elections, from the Liberal
party at Victoria ! My goodness ! What "big Injuns"
we the Bowser party are���doing a cake-walk before
the admiring eyes of "the whole of North America,"
in stolen toggery a mile too big for us and which we
don't know how to decently wear!
Quite in keeping with the "non-partisan civil service" plank in the Liberal platform, Mr. Brewster,
Liberal leader, made the specific declaration in a
speech at Fort Fraser, the other day, that the Liberal
Government, to be installed in power after September
14th, "will be prepared to offer positions in the civil
service to all returned soldiers, irrespective of their
party affiiliations, who desire to enter it and are fitted
to perform the duties." It's a safe bet that Premier
Bowser won't steal this plank of the Liberal platform;
for patronage and the spoils system are the life
and breath -the very wallowing ground���of the Bowser bunch of porcines.
It's all in the family, we suppose���and they are all
jolly good fellows���"so, what's the use ?" But people, even Conservatives, will ask, Why don't the Government (the Bowser Government, of course) go outside the family occasionally (the MacKenzie family, of
course) when they have some extra special plums to
give out? For instance, position of Returning Officer
at general election? Makes one think there must be
a great paucity of qualified material in the G. 0. P.,
or else that the "family compact" of '37 is working
over-time again. But MacKenzie was on the other
side then! Different clan! As an afterthought, Why
wouldn't "Biscuits" do?
A new era has dawned in British Columbia; the
get-rich-quick dream is over and, with its passing,
must go the real estate Government to which every
piece of legislative work was simply a "deal" to be
put through to the best advantage of the party and its
friends. The process of rebuilding will necessarily be
slow, but under the guidance of such men as H. C.
Brewster and M. A. Macdonald, with a strong backing
of clean, honest men in the south, and men of the type
of T. D. Pattullo, Frank Mobley and A. M. Manson
from the north, the Province will enter upon a stage
of real prosperity, built upon a solid foundation of
truth and respect for the rights of all men, of whatever political creed.���Prince Rupert News.
The expected has happened. "Price Ellison's personal popularity" that is the way the Province puts it
���won a nomination again for him in North Okanagan,
at the second convention for the riding, held at Vernon, Monday night. On the first ballot, the result
stood: Ellison, 54; W. H. Keary, 19; Kidston, 13.
The nomination was accordingly made unanimous. On
account of the "Colony Farm stock deal," Price Ellison had to get out of the Bowser Government���for the
Referring to the dropping of F. W. Welsh, of
"plugging" and School Board fame, from the Vancouver Conservative ticket and the selection of the same
gentleman by Premier Bowser as a fit and proper person to be sent to London to help round up the soldiers'
vote in the Old Country, the Prince Rupert News remarks: "He is the gentleman who was on such intimate terms with John L, Sullivan and the Tory election gang from Seattle that Johnny sent him too wireless messages describing the oncoming voters in order
that he might recognize them when they met. * *
* This friend of Sullivan, and the other jail-birds,
who managed to squeeze $25 out of the soap manufacturer, or rather out of the people of Vancouver, for
the Tory funds in return for a contract for soap, is one
of the crew who tried their utmost to blackguard M,
A. Macdonald. He is now measuring down to his true
.A contemporary illustrates and prints a description
of "a very simple frock" (this is for ladies only),
which might be appropriately termed a hard-time,
war-time garment, as it saves both time and money,
and certainly looks very "fetching" in the picture,
which we are sorry we can't reproduce. According to
the description, it is "made out of one piece of goods
and having only one underarm seam. It can be put
together by an amateur dressmaker in one day. All
you have to do is to get a piece of goods just twice
your length. Double it;"make a hoie in the top to put
your head through; sew the seam up the sides; put in
tucks to make the sleeves; add a little ruching where
desired, with belt and pockets as required, then you
have a dress good for winter or summer, and it can be
worn until it is in tatters." The description adds: "It
is quite popular in Boston"���in fact, a Boston woman
devised it���which is a guarantee of its correctness, at
any rate.     J
Another fool extravagance of the McBride-Bowser
Government���Strathcona Park, Vancouver Island���has
latetly had a little attention focussed on it by G. Mc-
Geer, Liberal candidate for Richmond. Strathcona
Park, it may be remembered, was the scene of the labors of the Government's high priced American engineer, Mr. Thompson, for three years at $15,000 per.
Expenditures for two years totalled $234,215, of which
good Government teamsters drew down no less than
$44,575. And now it turns out, as brought out by Mr.
McGeer, that Strathcona Park is not a public park at
all, but a great timber reserve lease of that formerly
Government glorified German, Alvo von Alvensleben,
and now held in the name of the Dominion Bank. The
owners of the timber keep a caretaker at "the park"
with instructions to keep trespassers (the public) "off
the grass." In proof of his statement,, Mr. McGeer
read a letter from J. P. Meehan, of Vancouver, instructing the caretaker to keep all trespassers out because fires in the timber last year had been started by
With all the evidences that have been accumulating,
and that have been capped by the appointment of F.
W. ("Soapy") Welsh-late Vancouver Conservative
candidate, late president of the Vancouver Conservative Association, late chairman of the Building Committee of the Vancouver School Board���on the job,
that the Bowser Government intends to use to the utmost the power it has taken under the amended Provincial Elections Act to manipulate the taking of the
soldiers' vote, both in Canada and the Old Country, so
as to defeat, if possible, the regularly expressed will of
the electors at the polls, the only thing left for the
people to do is to determine and insure that such an
absolutely overwhelming vote shall be recorded against
the Government, in the regular voting in British Columbia, that nothing else will count. That we believe
to be the temper of the people, which they will manifest in no uncertain way on September 14th. By
snowing the Government hopelessly under in the regular voting, we shall deprive them at once of the opportunity and the temptation to manipulate the irregular voting so as to turn the scales in their own favor.

The Meredith-Duff Royal Commission to investigate
the Kyte fuse charges reported last week. The report, it is said, covers thirty printed pages and takes
the form of a recital of the evidence, with an occasional expression of opinion by the Commissioners, and no
summary of the conclusions at the end, consequently
it was difficult without a careful study of the whole
report to arrive at a clear idea of the exact findings.
This much emerged, however, from an examination
by the Eastern press representatives: That the responsible Minister, Sir Sam Hughes, was let down
easily- absolved from any intention of wrong doing-
while his man Friday, "Colonel" John Wesley Allison,
comes in for severe condemnation, particularly in the
matter of his quarter of a million rake-off or commission on the big American fuse contract, and also with
regard to another commission on an order for cartridge cases which Allison would have got "if the company had made deliveries of the cases according to the
terms of the order." The Commissioners do not find
that there was intentional discrimination by the Shell
Committee against Canadian manufacturers, but regret that through an oversight of Col. Carnegie of the
Shell Committee���charitably attributed to him having
too much to do���a contract for 1,666,666 graze fuses,
"of a kind which could be produced in Canada with
due expedition," had gone with fhe rest. 23

The Columbian Canard.
"If it is in the Columbian, it isn't so!"
That, said Mr. David Whiteside, Liberal
candidate for New Westminster City, is
the reputation the Columbian has built
up for itself politically of late. Mr.
Whiteside was speaking at the regular
weekly meeting of the Liberal Campaign
Committee, iu the Club Rooms, last
night, aud referring to the false and
ridiculous story which appeared in the
Columbian of that evening to the effect
that he (Mr. Whiteside) was going to
withdraw from the contest. That there
was not a shadow of truth in the story,
it was perhaps hardly necessary to say,
considering its source, said Mr. Whiteside.
Mr. L. B. Lusby, campaign manager,
considered the Columbian had given the
Liberals a good advertisement and had
also advertised to what desperate straits
the Columbian's party felt themselves reduced politically.

Great   Saving   in  Putting   Up   Fruits
Without Sugar and  Adding the
Sweetening When Serving.
In these times of the high price of
sugar and many other articles, but not
including fruit, which is now in season
and fairly reasonable as to price, the following from an exchange relating to the
putting up of fruit preserves without
sugar will be of interest:
With regard to the high price of sugar,
why use sugar at all? The prevalent
idea that fruit can not be kept without
the addition of sugar iu the process of
canning is quite a mistake. If made into
a thick syrup, sugar acts as an antiseptic, keeping perfectly sound fruit from
decay even without heat, but, iu the
quantities ordinarily used in canning, it
takes absolutely no part iu the preservation of the fruit from deterioration. Authorities all agree that fruit put up without sugar retains its delicate and distinctive flavor very much better, and is
altogether superior to that put up in the
ordinary way. Of course, sugar will
eventually have to be used in preparing
the fruit for the table, but much less is
required to sweeten to taste after cooking. This is so for a well understood
scientific reason. Our ordinary white
granulated is a pure cane sugar, and is
the sweetest of all sugars. When cane
sugar is heated in the presence of an
acid, it gradually changes into other
forms of sugar having much less sweetening power. One of these, glucose,
has only about 30 per cent, the sweeten,
ing power of pure cane sugar.
All fruits contain more or less acid,
and so all mixtures of fruit aud sugar
tend to lose some of their sweetness in
the process of cooking. On this account,
it is much more economical to add the
sugar after the fruit is cooked, while this
is also the only way in whicli the full
characteristic flavor of the fruit can be
retained. Another point worthy of consideration is that, before fruit so preserved has to be used, it is quite possible
that sugar prices will be normal again.
There is nothing to lose, therefore, but
a gain in the quality of the preserves,
and a probability of considerable saving,
in trying out the sugarless method.
To put up fruits without sugar, simply
prepare them in the ordinary way; see
that the jars are perfectly clean, thoroughly scalded with boiling water, filled
to the to)) and left iu the water a consid-*
erable lime; boil the rubbers and covers,
and see that the rubbers are soft and
free from grooves or  cracks;   place   the

fruit in the jars, fill with cold water,
place them iu a boiler filled with cold
water, heat to the boiling point, lierries
will do if removed when the boiling
point is reached. Large fruits, such as
peaches, pears, plums, cherries, and the
like should get 20 to 3D minutes boiling.
A board should be placed at the bottom
of the boiler to keep the jars from the
direct heat of the stove.
Fruit thus prepared will be found excellent for pies, delicious for eating with
cream, and generally superior to the
sugar syrup preserves. In properly airtight jars it keeps quite as long.

Deputations Have Field Day Monday
Night���Tax Sale Fixed for Sept. 18���
Closing By-law Proves Live Ques.
The deputations "had the floor" at
last Council meeting, Monday night, no
less than four, beginning with the grocers and ending with the Civic Employees
Association, supporting their requests
verbally before the Council���the grocers
desiring a slight extension of the closing
hour each evening for the accommodation of customers who do not quit work
till six p.m., and the civic employees,
outside service, asking an extension to
them of the Saturday half holiday; with
pay, while Mr. J. li. Robson presented
the claims of a certain street for improvements, and Mr. F, Hurudall, photographer, set forth the disadvantages
imposed upon the regular kodak dealers, as compared with their competitors
in that line, the druggists, by the Saturday half holiday, and asked for relief, if
possible. The definite and final decision
to have a tax sale, and the fixing of the
date for September 13th next, Aid,
Johnston only expressing dissent, was
one of the most important resolutions
The full board, including the Mayor,
were present, though the Council did
not get down to regular session till after
8:30 o'clock, having met the grocers'
deputation, consisting of Messrs. Macdonald, Mercer, and Sprice, in the
Mayor's room, in the meantime.
A minor amendment was made to the
minutes on motion of Aid. Goulet, in re-
ration to a report made by himself at
last meeting, after which the following
business was disposed of under

Referred to Board of Works lo report.
From I. G. Robson, asking for the
grading level for the purpose of laying
cement sidewalks at the corner of Sixth
avenue and Ash street. On motion, the
City Engineer was instructed to furnish
Mr. Robson with the required lines
he was authorized  to   proceed with
II. E. Leash, of a photograph of the first
contingent that left this city for the
front, which had been ordered by the
previous chairman, Aid. Malins. On
motion, the account, $12.50, was passed
and ordered paid.
Aid. Johnston, chairman of the Fire
Committee, reported that, at the recent
fire at the Iowa Lumber Co. premises,
Sapperton, two of tbe firemen, Capt.
George McDonald and James Watson,
were injured, and substitutes had to be
put in their places, as they would be tin-
unfit for duty for a few weeks. Report
adopted witli au expression of regret and
sympathy voiced by Aid. Eastman.
Aid, Johnston also reported that Chief
Watsoii had decided not to take the proposed trip to the Firemen's Convention
at Windsor, Out., on account of the
Council not being unanimously in favor
of the expenditure.
Aid. Goulet, in seconding the motion
of Aid. Johnston for the adoption of this
report, said he did not think a civic employee should take exception to any legitimate reasonable expression of opinion
bv any Alderman on a matter of city
business befote the Council. As he himself bad approved of Chief Watsoii attending the Firemen's Convention at
Windsor, he felt the more free lo make
these remarks.
Aid Bryson said he supposed it was
his adverse remarks that the Chief had
reference to, but he (Aid Bryson)
thought he had been within his rights
aud within reason as a representative of
the ratepayers in any criticism of the
suggested expenditure that he had made;
and, anyway, as he was the only one out
of the seven Aldermen who had dissented, he did not think Chief Watsoii should
have decided, on that account,, not to attend the Windsor Firemen's Convention,
The motion was then put and the report adopted.
Aid. Johnston also reported, asking
further time for consideration of tenders
for fire hose, which was granted.
Aid. Eastman, chairman of the Light
Committee, reported, recommending
that the'suspension of O. Vallieres, trimmer in the Electric Light Department,
be confirmed. Adopted.

The Price of Safety.
In a report to the Admiralty, reviewing the operations of the Dover patrol
since December, 1915, Vice-Admiral Sir
Reginald Bacon, commander of the patrol, says that in the six months more
than 21,000 merchant ships, apart from
men-of-war and auxiliaries, passed
through the patrol lines. Of these only
21 were lost or seriously damaged by
euemv vessels.
"But to effect this security to merchant
shipping," said the admiral, "I regret
that over 4 per cent, of our patrol vessels have been sunk and the lives of 77
officers and men lost lo the nation."

Association, in attendance, next addressed the Council, asking that they be

pay for Saturday.
Considerable discussion ensued, participated in by the Mayor and Aid. Jardine, McAdam, Dodd, Goulet, and Bryson, during which it was pointed out
that the proposed change would involve

suggested that the petitioning civic  em-

Produce Mm and Save Mm
The Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting line you may be in the producing line. Labour
is limited���all the more reason to do more than ever
before. Grow food for the sion who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that
you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you
cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right
spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more
you produce the more you can save.   Producing and saving are war-service.
Make Your Labour Efficient
In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.
Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if
possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada
needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.
Cultivate it with a will.   Make your labour count for as much as possible.
Do Not Waste Materials
There should be no waste in war-time. Canada could
pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out
���I of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in
our homes. Every pound of food saved from waste is as good as a pound of increased
production. The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save. France is strong
to-day because of thrift in time of peace. The men and women of Great Britain are not
only "doing" but are learning to " do without."
Spend Your Money Wisely
Practise economy in the home by eliminating luxuries. Wasting our dollars here weakens our strength
at the Front.     Your savings  will help Canada to
finance the war.   Save your money for the next Dominion War issue.   There can be no
better investment.
