Public Health and the War!
The minds of most men are |
centered at the present time on j
the problems connected with the
devastating war in Europe.   The I
supreme task which confronts
the British Empire, and Canada |
as an important part of the Empire, requires the concentration
of all the thought and energy
that can be given to its accomplishment. It is a difficult time,
therefore, to arouse interest in
social problems which are in need
of solution.. Indeed, there are
some people who question whether the present is an appropriate
time to discuss them. And yet,
when we enquire deeo enough,
it seems a3 if no time could be
more appropriate for those to
gi'/e attention to them who are
unable to assist the cause of ihe
Empire in & more direct way.
Problems which have arisen
since the war commenced have
shown us the vital importance of
public health and of the efficiency
of human labour. Who can measure the enormous debt which the
British army to-day owes to the
public health legislation of the
past 40 years?' That the standard of physique has been raised
by improved sanitation andhous
ing: is without question, The
value of this on the battlefield
has been seen in recent months.
In our workshops and factories
physical and mental efficiency are
needed as never before, and
what has been accomplished by
the past generation in purifying
our water- supn'tesT'lTr^'i'iiakirig
. city life healthier and cleaner,
and in educating our workmen is
now yielding abundant harvest.
In some directions we might
have been better equipped than
we are. In' spite of the progress
we have made we might have
paid more regard to health and to
conservation of life than we have
done. Bad housing and sanitary
conditions haye contributed .to
the loss of tens of thousands of'
young lives in Canada alone
which might have been saved to
the Empire if we had paid more
regard to public health requirements.
The errors or rather deficiencies of the past should be our inspiration for the future,, Healthier conditions of life in our cities
are needed now to aid us in finishing this war; they are needed
even more to build up the reservoirs of strength for the future.
Then too, the men who are sacri-
. ficing themselves at the front
will have to be replaced, and
large gaps will have to be filled.
To prevent avoidable disease and
death is to contribute to the
source of that real strength of
the Empire which to-day is undergoing its supreme test.
In reg-u'd to finance, the war is
affecting our whole political and
municipal structure throughout
Canada. We need to conserve
our national resources, to encourage production, to reduce
waste and unhealthy speculation.
To accomplish these tasks successfully we must plan for the
future, so that our towns may
produce healthy citizens and be
ready to face times of stress and
storm as well as times of prosperity.
Auction
As previously announced in
the "Prospector" it is the intention of P, B, Lewis to sell by
Public Auction all unclaimed baggage that has been lying in the
Victoria Hotel, the charges on
which have beon unpaid for the
past twelve months.
The sale takes place tomorrow
(Saturday) at 7 p.m. in the lobby,
of the hotel. The whole of the
proceeds will be given to the
Lillooet War Fund, and it is
therefore hoped that there will
be a good attendance of buyers
and that bidding will be brisk.
The goods for sale include overcoats and other kinds of clothing
and dry goods, and there will be
a chance to pick up some real
bargains.
Anyhow whatever is paid for
the goods will go to the above
worthy cause, so come right along
and do your bidding.

Three German transports have
been sunk by Russian land batteries near Pernau at the north
end of the Golf of Riga, aud several thousand German troopers
killed according to semi-official
announcement in the Novo Vre-
mya.
The Germans attempted to
land troops at Gainash, south of
Pernau. in lighters, similtaneous
with the naval attack, which ended in the destruction of the battle cruiser Moltke and seven other German warships.
London Aug 24—News agency
despatch from Petograd says that
in addition to the eleven ships
already reported sunk, the Germans also lost an auxilary cruiser
in the naval battle in the Gulf of
the Riga.
It is reported that Germany has
peace plans which are to be published in about two weeks—should

shown, cut the screen to pieces,
broke into the operator's room
and forcibly carried off the films.
The Chinese police arrived too
late to assist the proprietor, who
has applied to the British legation for redress.
.Japan has issued an annouce-
ment that orders have been dispatched to the foundries and
factories of the empire that are
engaged in the production of munitions to rush their work—for

Does cod liver oil cost a lot of

What was to be done? When he
