THINKS MARTIN IS "EASY'
Captain Robinson of Kamloops Retains
From Tour of Cariboo.
LOCAL  ITEMS   OF INTEREST
The following appeared in the
Vancouver Province of Aug. 14:
Mr. Joseph Martin, now on the
road somewhere between London
and Vancouver, would be well
advised, it is said, not to bank
too heavily upon Cariboo if he
wishes to figure again in the
federal politics of Canada.
"Let them leave Martin in the
field," said J. T. Robinson of
Kamloops, at the Hotel Vancouver last nigl.t. And he winked
significantly. "Let them leave
him to me! I have been all over
the constituency in which I am
nominated candidate of the Conservative party in the next Dominion election, and I cannot see
in any part of the constituency of
Cariboo where Mr. Martin is going to get a vote."
'Captain Robinson is in Vancouver on his way to Victoria on
political business. For some
months past he has been acting
.as special recruiting officer with
the 172nd Regiment, which has
been brought up to full strength
and which is now in camp at
Vernon, Col. J. R. Vickers, officer commanding.
"In the Kamloops district."
said Captain Robinson, "conditions have hot been better in
years. There has been enough
rain to help along the crops
wonderfully. The':district will
do well this year, particularly in
grain production, and among the
new buildings going up at Kam
loops are two grain elevaters.
"Mining conditions are good
and generally throughout the
Cariboo the people are looking
ahead with confidence. Unfortunately there is a great shortage
of labor and wages are higher
than they have been for years."
In Captain Robinson's constituency are five provincial ridings
-Kamloops, Cariboo, Yale, Lillooet and Fort George-which,
according to his reckoning, will
return five Conservative members
on September 14.
ENCOURAGE DEVELOPMENT
OF THE MINING INDUSTRY
Sandon. B.C., Aug. 15.-"If
we wish to develop the mining
industry of this province it is absolutely necessary to bring in
American capital," declared Hon.
Lorne Campbell, minister of
mines, to an audience which
crowded the Union hail here this
evening. The minister gave a
complete answer to the Liberal
charges that it was unpatriotic to
import United States capital into
British Columbia. This argument
is not made on the platforms of
the upper country even by Liberal candidates and it is ridiculed by
miners who read about it in coast
Liberal organs.
When he came to the Slocan
district 18 or 19 years ago, it was
the banner period of its prosperity, Mr. Campbell said. The
mines had then been under British and Canadian control and
eventually they had shut down.
As he had stated in Spokane, he
was very pleased to see the United States
take an interest in the development of
mining in this province, and the statement
of the Liberal leaders that he was handing
over the assets of British Columbia was
on a par with their other statements.
Now of the 20 plants whicn had been

Mr. P. Garigan, of the 20-Mlle
House, Ashcroft road, is attending the Exhibition in Vancouver
this week.
Miss Mary McRae, of Vancouver, is visiting Miss Barton, at
Clinton, and Miss Boyd at the 70-
Mile House, Cariboo Road.
Mr. W. B. French left for Vancouver on Tuesday. During his
absence Mr. S. A. MacfarlaneSs
in charge of the telegraph office.
A dead body floated down Cfee
Fraser river past Lillooet px\
Sunday evening. Some Indians
attempted to recover it, but we>e
unsuccessful.

on Saturday in the Victoria hotel
automobile.
Mrs. D."Hurley and Miss Minnie Hurley left on Tuesday to
visit friends at the Britannia
mines. They will also view the
sights at the Exhibition in Vancouver before their return.
Mr. Larry Keary left on Monday for Vancouver, where he will
take in the exhibition. He also
intends to visit Victoria and other points on the island before hi=
return.
There is still about $20 outstanding on the Red Cross Fund
list and subscribers who have not
yet paid are requested to kindly
hand in their donations to the
secretary, Mr. LeMare, so that
the money can go forward.
Mr. C. Tingley, of the Vancouver Transfer Co., is spending
a few days in town and is registered at the Excelsior hotel.
Mr. Tingley is a son of the late
Stephen Tingley, an old timer,
who was at one time connected
with the Cariboo Express Co.
A meeting will be held in the
court house next Wednesday
evening at 7.30 o'clock to consider ways and means of looking
after soldiers returning from the
war. This is a question that is
uppermost in the minds of all who
are anxious to see the returned
soldier get a square deal and we
hope to see a large attendance at
the meeting on Wednesday night.
Mr. J. Pennie, publisher of the
West Yale Review, Hope, was
married in Vancouver last week
to Miss Annie E. Mellor, B.A.,
formerly senior teacher in Hope
school. We rise to congratulate
our brother editor on his courageous venture at a time when
money is so scarce that the farmers are backward in paying their
subscriptions even in spuds and
onions. However, we have proved
the fact time and again that two
can live as cheaply as one.
A supply of the Shepherd's
Handbook, a small publication issued by the Canadian Sheep
Breeders' Association, Toronto,
is on hand at the Department of
Agriculture, Victoria. This book
gives the description of all the
better known breeds of sheep and
the scale of points by which they
are judged at shows under the
supervision of the Sheep Breeders' Association. In addition to
these, it contains useful breeding
tables, descriptions of the objectionable points and those liable to
disqualify sheep in a fair, as well
as much other useful information.
Any sheep breeder wishing to
procure a copy of this useful
little handbook should write at
once to the Publications Branch,
Department of Agriculture, Victoria, as the supply is limited.

re-opened, and which were once more
shipping from the Slocan district, 17 were
controlled by American capital and three
by Canadian capital. "If we do not encourage the American money, where are
the finances for the development of our
mines to come from?" asked Hon. Mr.
Campbell. "The war has cut us off from
the London money market, and there is
nowhere to go but the United States.
This is no poor man's country. It takes
money to develop mining property here."
WILL BUY LILLOOET
FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
Mr. J. Swarts, of the wholesale
firm of Swarts Bros., Vancouver,
spent a few days here during the
past wlelc sizing up the fruit and
vegetable crop in this district. It
was the intention of Swarts Bros,
to erect a packing plant here, but
as the crop is lighter than usual,
they do not feel justified in going
to that expense at present. How-
e;er, Mr. Swarts informs us that
he has made arrangements to
send a number of men here next
month to handle the fruit crop,
and they will pick and pack it
right in the orchards. This firm
boughi most of the fruit in this
locality last year and, we believe,
gave good satisfaction. Regarding the early apples, Mr. Swarts
suggests that the growers pick
and box them and send them to
his firm in Vancouver, who will
pay the freight and remit the
money as soon as the fruit is sold.
Owing to the change in the
market from day to day the
wholesalers are unable to quote
any definite price. Mr. Swarts
expects to get ten cars of beans,
eight cars of onions and thirty
cars of potatoes in this district
this season. He claims the Lil
looet potatoes are superior to the
Ashcroft spuds, but they need to
be advertised more extensively
than they have been in the past.
Mr. Swarts was accompanied to
town by Mr. S. A. Macfarlane,
who will spend a few weeks here.
During the month of June last
a letter was received by the secretary from Sir Herbert Ames,
M-P., Hon. Secretary of the Fund
at Ottawa, regarding a conference of the Western Branch
Organizations to be held at Re-
gina, Sask., on June 28th and
29th. The committee were asked
to send a representative to this
meeting, if possible, but as this
was out of the question, a letter
was forwarded to Sir Herbert
Ames expressing their views on
the policy of the Fund for 1917.
Should the money required be
secured
(a) By voluntary subscriptions.
(b) By taxation.
(c) By both combined.
If by taxation, what governing
body or bodies shouid assume this
responsibility, Dominion, Provincial or Municipal ? The committee were of the opinion that "ip
order to obtain the greatest revenue possible and to reach ALL
the people the following methods
might be adopted:
(a) By taxation.
(b) By voluntary contributions.
The following letter has been
received from Sir Herbert Ames
in reply, and will be read with interest by all who are anxious and
willing to assist in raising the
necessary funds to aid the dependents of those who are fighting the Empire's battles for us:
Tough Question.
A bishop recently addressed a
large assembly of Sunday-school
children, and wound up by asking
in a very paternal way: "And
now, is there any little boy or
any little girl who would like to
ask me a question"?
A thin, shrill voice at the back
of the room called out: "Please,
sir, why did the angels walk up
and down Jacob's ladder when
they had wings?"
' Oh, ah, yes—I see," said the
bishop. "And now, is there any
little girl who would like to answer this question?"
Ottawa, 26th July, 1916.
Dear Sir,
You will pardon me for not
having earlier answered your
favour of June 20th. The letter
containing the views of the Lillooet Committe was not lost sight
of, but was considered with other
communications at the time of our
Conference. Mr. Nation, our
British Columbia organizer, was
present at Regina and Winnipeg
and through him we learned of
the splendid generosity of the
smaller towns throughout British
Columbia, in which list Lillooet
holds high place.
We think you have done remarkably well in writing up such
a large number of people in your
district for monthly donations to
the Patriotic Fund and hope that
the comparatively small percentage of residents who refused to
help will not discourage the rest.
Slackers are everywhere, whether it be in the matter of putting
on the khaki or of contributing
funds. The Patriotic fund makes
its appeal to the man with a conscience; to the man who wishes
after the war to have the satisfaction of knowing that he has
done his bit. Some men have no
mtriotism and no conscience,
lence the appeal does not touch
;hem, but for the balance of their
ives they, and their children
after them, will be despised by
all right thinking people and their
punishment in the end will fit the
crime. The principal glory of the
Patriotic Fund so far has been
that the sum collected represents
the voluntary giving of patriotic
people, just as our army represents voluntary enrolment of
brave men. We should be sorry
to see taxation replace voluntary
giving, since the Fund has never
felt that it needed to take unwil-

AFTER THE WAR.
For many years prior to
the outbreak of this great
war the whole civilized world
was trembling with anxiety
as if it had a presentiment of
some terrible impending calamity. The general conjecture was that the unrest of
the masses over real or
fancied grievances would
burst forth in civil war
everywhere. This would be
infinitely more calamitous
than the present war, terrible
as it is.
The disturbing causes of
this unrest are not dead-
they are only sleeping. And
as they are sleeping, now is
the time to deal with them.
There is no doubt but after
peace is proclaimed the great
minds of the world, or at
least those of our own Empire, will endeavour to settle
all those social questions
hitherto so threatening. In
the meantime we should get
busy and do at least some of
the rough work in advance,
so as to lighten the tremendous burden which must rest
on the shoulders of others
later on. We have the labour question, the woman suf-
rage question, the liquor
question and many othets of
a social, industrial and economic character, and the man
who wishes to lend a helping
hand in the reconstruction
will find among these something on which he can speak
or write and thus become a
public benefactor even
though in a small way. Our
first great duty is to g;et the
mind of the masses in the
right mood with a proper
conception of the demands of
absolute and eternal justice.
Building on this foundation
we cannot err. No matter
how humble the sphere of a
man's activities, there is not
a day passes that does not
give him an opportunity to
say a good word for Truth,
Justice and Humanity and
that good word may bear
fruit in time or place he does
not dream of. Woman suffrage has been delayed centuries too long. The splendid
success that women are making of themselves in their
new spheres of labour,
especially in England, has
removed all doubt as to their
fitness for duties in the higher walks of life. There may
be some few positions the
duties of which should be
performed by men, but the
good sense, and good judgment of women will always
be a guarantee that they will
not seek those positions any
more than they would seek
positions which would call
for the neglect of home and
family.
On the temperance ques
tion our opinion is that this
will be arranged by international agreement. It is very
certain that alcohol will become so diffused by its use
for a thousand and one purposes in the near future that
it will not be possible to
place any restrictions on its
use as a beverage. The human will must be the sole
arbiter and the theory that
leaves more on education
than on prohibition is the
theory of the future.
WILD GAME.
Judging from the rate at
which the wild creatures of
North America are now being destroyed, fifty vears
hence there will be no large
game left in the United
States nor in Canada, outside
of rigidly protected game
preserves. It is therefore
the duty of every good citizen to promote the protection
of forests and wild life and
the creation of game preserves, while a supply of
game remains. Every man
who finds pleasure in hunting
or fishing should be willing
to spend both time and money
in active work for the protection of forests, fish and
game.
In the settled and civilized
regions of North America
there is no real necessity for
the consumption of wild
game as human food ; nor is
there any good excuse for
the sale of game for food
purposes. The operations of
market hunters should be
prohibited everywhere, under
severe penalties.
The highest purpose which
the killing of wild game and
game fishes can hereafter be
made to serve is in furnishing objects to overworked
men for tramping and camping trips in the wilds, and the
value of wild game as human
food should no longer be regarded as an important factor in its pursuit.—Code of
Ethics, Michigan Wild Life
League;

PECULIAR FEATURES OF
IHE PROHIBITION
ACT
Bill Appears to Have Been
Framed as a Direct Blow
at Workingmen.
To the man of means who is
accustomed to buy his liquor by
the bottle or case from the wholesale store or the retail shop, the
Prohibition Act means absolutely
nothing, as he can still order his
supply from a neighboring province or the States just as easily
as in the past, the only difference
being that he will have to pay£a
higher cost, on account of transportation charges.
To the working man, who is
accustomed to buy his liqnor by
the bottle or glass, the Act means,
however, something entirely different. The ordinary working
man is not given the opportunity
to lay by money sufRcie.it to provide for his sending away for a
case of liquor, hence he is under
a handicap which does not interfere with the rich man. Then,
again, the workingman's usual
beverage is beer, and on shipments of this class the freight
rates are so high as to make ..he
price prohibitive for him.
Again, while some working
men are fortunate enough to occupy homes of their own, a great
majority occupy houses jointly
with others. A large proportion
would come under the term of
lodgers. Many others also take
boarders in order to help out the
family income. All of this class
, would find that the Prohibition
' Act was a distinct barrier to their
enjoying their personal right to
partake of a glass of beer in their
own homes. The Apt provides
that a man may import liquor
freely for use in his own private
dwelling. It so defines the word
"dwelling", however, that householders who occupy premises
jointly are not allowed the privilege of having liquor for their
own private use. The same is
true of lodgers personally, and
the families of those who keep
lodgers where more than three
room in a house, As far as homes
where boarders are kept, ihe Act
is explicit in stating that the
house is not a dwelling, and that
liquor for beveage purposes may
not be brought into it.
The above points cover phases
of the Prohibition Act which are
distinctly to the disadvantage of
the working man, although they
mean nothing to the rich man.
A reading of the Act will show
many similar features of class
legislation of so open a character
as to lead the organised bodies of
labor, which have already considered the Prohibition Bill, to unanimously condemn the Act.

ling money for its patriotic work.
You speak of taxation by the
Dominion Government. No method of general taxation has yet
been prepared which would fairly collect from each individual in
Canada what he is able to give
and, at this time when everybody
is busy with the work of carrying
on the war, no cabinet or parliament could evolve and put into
operation such a system. Then
too, out of nine provinces, seven
have made arrangements for next
year to raise within their boundaries what may be required for
Canadian Patriotic Fund local
needs. Were the Dominion Government to put a tax on everybody it would mean that the
people of seven provinces, having
already locally raised their share,
would be asked to make up the
balance of the two other provinces which were not doing their
share. This would be obviously
unfair. Hence, we feel that for
next year, if the war continues
into 1917, we shall have to adopt
similar methods as heretofore.
The Dominion Government is
carrying an enormous load and
ought not to be asked to raise
more money than it is raising at
present. We, however, can get
considerable subscriptions from
municipalities, from county councils, from corporations, from individuals and, as a last resort,
from the provincial governments,
and from these sources we hope
to be able to raise the ''million a
month that will be required for
1917. Of this sum, the British
Columbia representatives, at our recent
Conference, undertook to raise $750,000,
or $2 per capita, from the people of British Columbia. Although this does not represent more than one half of what will
be spent in British Columbia, it still represents your fair share of the common
burden, and 1 am confident that the people
of your province will raise it.
I hope personally to be able to visit
British Columbia in October next and to
accompany Mr. Nation to  some  of the
places that have so generously responded
to his appeal.   Whether Lillooet will be
one of these or not I cannot say.   In any
event, let me urge you to continue in future as in the past your generous support
of our nation benefaction.   I remain,
Yours sincerely,

Twice round the sun the earth has run
Since the German war storm broke.
Today more grand, on sea and land,
Breaks Britain's battle stroke.
Momentous rise, the dire replies,
That drown the Teuton thunder,
And yet more fell, the hail of shell
That drives the despot under.
Terrific scourge, with thunderous dirge,
The guns of the great Allies,
Delivering death  with their  blasting
breath
From a million batteries.
