was collected in fines and a
number of the offenders were
sent to jail.
We have now a tri-weekly mail

LIBERAL MEETING
Brewster, Macdonald and
Bryson Address Electors of
Lillooet District.
Mr. H. C. Brewster, the leader
of the Liberal party in British
Columbia, and his lieutenant, Mr.
M. A. Macdonald, who have been
addressing meetings in the interests of the party in the northern
part of the province, arrived in
Lillooet yesterday afternoon and
addressed a very attentive audience in Santini's hall last night.
There was a fairly large crowd
present and the speakers received
a generous amount of applause.
Mr. Dan Hurley was the chairman and introduced as the first
speaker Mr. J. B. Bryson, the
local Liberal candidate.
Mr. Bryson said he was not an
orator and would not take up
much time. He was out to win,
uut hoped that after the election
he would have as many Conservative friends as ever.
Mr. Macdonald was received
with applause, and immediately
launched into a speech in condemnation of the present government. He referred to the investigation in Victoria during the
last session and claimed the Liberals had found many cases where
money had been squandered. He
also took up the questions of the
Soldiers' Bill, the Credits Bill,
the P. G. E. railway and many
other matters of interest to the
electors at the present time. He
said that no matter what party
was elected the P. G. E. railway
would have to be completed.
Mr. Brewster went over practically the same ground as the
previous speaker, but delved a
little more deeply into the affairs
of the P.G.E. railway. He was
applauded when he stated that if
the Liberals were returned to
power he would give the ladies
the vote.
The meeting was brought to a
close by the singing of God Save
the King.
Mr. J. A. Mara, of Kamloops,
a former member of parliament
for Yale, is a visitor at the Seton
lake hatchery.
Mr. R. J. Hartley, who is accompanying the Liberal leaders
as correspondent of the Victoria
Times and Vancouver Sun, paid
The Prospector a friendly call
yesterday.
F. Parsons has taken charge of
the boat on Seton lake formerly
operated by the late Walter Cox.
Trips will be made twice a week
up the lake.

The Second Anniversary
of the War.
On the 4th of August, 1914,
we entered the great war.
Now that the issue is no
longer doubtful, we can draw
a long breath and do some
serious thinking. The first
thought which strikes us is
the fact that we ourselves
are chiefly to blame for the
war. We petted a tame tiger
for generations and when it
became strong and lively
through our petting and got
the smell of blood, ours was
the choicest to its taste.
When the war of 1870
opened there was no political
Germany. It was Prussia
against France. Prussia
swept all before her, and although the world expected us
to interfere, as it cried aloud:
"Fair France is dying, her
blood runs red,'' yet such was
our fondness for the pet
tiger that we would not raise
a ringer. Though the sympathy of the British masses
was with France, there were
men in high places with narrow minds and weak visions
of the future. Were we not
connected with Prussia by
dynastic and religious ties of
the strongest possible character and would it not be
sacrilege to cut those ties in
favour of France, a nation
that had no such claims upon
us, and so we sat quiet and
looked on while our pet tiger
tore a great historic nation
to pieces.
Nor was this all. We still
continued to pet the brute for
many years afterwards. We
gave him Heligoland just because he wanted it as an outpost to protect his den in the
event of any future possible
enemy attempting to disturb
him. Dear good old Lord
Salisbury, let us say to you
now, in the words of the immortal Emmet: "If the illustrious dead participate in
the affairs of the living,"
look down and see the awful
consequence of your great
mistake in making that transfer. But with the help of
great Allies we shall tear the
tiger's jaws asunder, should
it take two or twenty years
more to do it, and wrench
from him our Heligoland, to
remain a small but valued
gem in the British Crown.
Indications all point to a
speedy termination of the
war. The Teutons and Turks
are now beaten, but perhaps
they do not know it. The
regeneration of Germany
must proceed from within.
Let us hope that they may
soon learn the true position
of affairs and not make it
necessary for us to celebrate
a third anniversary.
REFUSE TO AID FUND
Members of the committee
of the Merritt Patriotic Fund
at a meeting recently caustically criticized certain individuals in the Nicola Valley
for their paltry and disproportionate contributions to
the fund, while wholesale
condemnation was levelled at
the few who have refused to
donate one cent towards aiding the dependents of those
at the front. Instances were
quoted of residents, who were
living in comfort, refusing to
donate anything whatever to
the fund. Strongly worded
resolutions were passed condemning those who have
failed to support the cause
of the Allies in some form or
other, without just cause or
excuse.
172nd Battalion.
Capt. J. T. Robinson of the
172nd Battalion, will be in

LABOR HAS CONDEMNED
IHE PROHIBITION
ACT
Trades and Labor Councils of
Coast Cities Pass Strong Resolutions—Reasons Why Work-
ingmen Should Vote Against
the Bill.
Organized labor has declared
its position with reference to the
B.C. Prohibition Act with no un
certain sound, the result of close
investigation of and keen discussion of the Bill having resulted
in the straight declaration by the
Coast labor bodies that the Act
should be condemned and that the
workingmen of British Columbia
should do all in their power to
defeat the measure at the polls,.
The Vancouver Trades and
Labor Council, the most representative central labor organiz
ation in British Columbia, at its
meeting on July 20th, passed a
strong resolution against the Act,
the closing paragraph reading as
follows:
"Resolved that the Trades and
Labor Councilin Vancouver, B.T,
in harmony with representative
bodies of organized labor elsewhere places itself on record as
opposed to the British Columbia
Prohibition Act and to the principles involved therein."
■ In adopting the above resolution the Vancouver Trades Council was but following the steps of
the New Westminster Trades and
Labor Council, which on June
14th passed the following resolution :
"Resolved that this Council go
on record as opposed to prohibition as contained in the proposed
Bill, from an economic and social
standpoint and report this decision to the various unions with
the request that they help to defeat the Bill."
The resolutions above noted are
in line with the action of the Victoria Trades and Labor Council
and the Prince Rupert Labor
Council.
WORKINGMEN   HAVE A  "KICK"
COMING.
The discussion in connection
with the passage of these resolutions showed plainly that workingmen believe they have a just
"kick" in connection with the
Prohibition Act. It was stated
that the measure is class legislation of the rankest type inasmuch
as it allows the man of means to
secure all the liquor he desires by
importing it from outside points,
but at the same time places a
handicap on the workingman
who can only afford to buy his
beer by the glass. This argument
is directly along the line of the
remarks by Mr. Parker Williams,
member for Newcastle, on discussion of the Bill in the House,
when he openly declared the Act
to be class legislation and stated
that while he "would vote for
prohibition that would prohibit
he would never have anything to
do with such lopsided, jug-handled imitation such as the present
Bill.'-'
The Act is also objectionable to
trades unions- inasmuch as many
of its clauses were declared to be
un-British and unfair. It was
pointed out that clause 29 provided that any person could tell a
constable that he suspected a man
had liquor illegally in his possession. On this information, and
without disclosing the name of
the informer, the constable could
enter a man's house, break into
all the rooms, closets, etc., without a warrant. Such provisions
were severely criticised by members of the labor councils as absolutely opposed to the British
idea that "A man's house is his
castle."
In taking the action they did,
the councils were also moved by
the feeling that they should support the large body of working-
men who are today directly or indirectly engaged in connection
with the operation of licensed
premises. It was stated that
3700 men are now thus employed
and that 6000 persons are dependent upon them for a living.
This does not include over 1200
employees of licensed premises
who are now at the front. As the
Prohibition Act would mean that
these men would be thrown out
of work, the councils considered
| that legislation leading to such
I action, especially at this time,
'should be vigorously opposed.
Many delegates who took part
in the council discussions said
that (hey were prohibitionists.
They stated, however, that they
were opposed to the Act because
it was not a Prohibition Act in
any real sense of the term, provision being made in it for the
purchase of liquor by importation
or otherwise just as freely as is
now the case. They plainly stated
that they did not consider a vote
against the Prohibition Act a vote
against the principle of prohibition, as to their minds, the passage of such an act as was proposed would not in any way lessen the purchase or consumption
of liquor. As a matter of fact,
although it might tend to decrease the consumption of health
giving beer (the workingmen's
usual beverage), it would actually increase the consumption of
whisky and spirits, a condition
which was not for the best inter

TERRIFIC EXPLOSION.
Thirteen Warehouses and Contents Are
Merely One Item-Loss About
$35,100,000.
New York, July 31. —Property
loss estimated at from $25,000,000
to $45,000,000 was caused yesterday morning by a series of terrific explosions of ammunition
awaiting shipment to the Entente
Allies, and stored on Black Tom
Island, a small strip of land jutting into New York Bay off Jersey City. The loss of life cannot
be determined defintely.
The detonations, which were
felt in five states, began with a
continuous rapid fire of small
shells, the blowing up of great
quantities of dynamite and other
high explosiyes, following by the
bursting of thousands of shrapnel
shells, which literally showered
the surrounding country and
waters for many miles around.
The cause of the disaster has
not been determined.

Training that is Useful in Civil Life—
Unnumerable Trades Taught Men
Who Enlist.
It is not generally known that
in addition to beinjr taught everything that an infantry man is instructed in, the sapper of the
Canadian Engineers learns many
things useful in civil life. He is
therefore continually being prepared for the return to civil duties
at the end of the war.
He is taught bridge building,
building construction, road building, use of explosives, geometry,
construction of piers, derricks,
incinerators, drains, water systems, the use of the blocks and
tackles, knots, lashing and splicing. Careful thinking men who
are going to enlist should remember this. More men are
wanted, and wanted quickly, for
the Engineers. Sixty men are
wanted immediately.
Men desirous of enlisting in the
Engineers should apply at the
nearest army doctor or recruiting
station or communicate direct
with the officer commanding at
headquarters, North Vancouver,
B.C. On receipt of attestation
papers and medical history sheets,
transportation will be forwarded
for journey to Vancouver.
The officers and non-commissioned officers' school of military
engineering commences on Monday, July 31st. Anyone can join
this school and successful candidates will obtain a sergeant's
certificate before going overseas.
A considerable number of men
have received commissions after
obtaining this certificate.
