PEACE CAMPAIGN
Prominent Personages Head Movement Having for Its Object the
Ending of Hostilities.
Berlin, July 19, via London.—
The German National Committee
for securing an honourable peace
has drafted an address to the
country which will be published
within a few.days calling for the
support of Chancellor Von Beth-
rrann-Hollweg and the influencing of public opinion in the
direction of moderate peace aims.
The signatures attached to the
address indicates the importance
of the movement. They include
Prince von Wedel, general adjutant to the emperor; Philip Hein-
eken, director of the North German Lloyd Steamship Co.; Paul
von Schwabak, director of the
Bleichroder bank ; Professor Ad-
olph Harnack, and many important manufacturers, merchants,
professors and others.
AUGUST 4TH, 1916
On the above date Great Britain
will have been engaged for just
two years in demonstrating to
mankind, that "Britons never,
never, never shall be slaves."
Likewise, it has been proved conclusively that "Britannia rules
the waves."
On Aug. 4th last year, white
we of Lillooet unfurled our flag
and affirmed by resolutiou our
"unswerving confidence in the
future glorious and successful issue of this great conflict," we
could not foresee that one short
year would place us in the favourable position which with our
brave Allies we now occupy. The
flowing tide is with us. Britain,
with the spirit of our great War
Lord, Kitchener, animating all
its sons, is united in one terrific
onslaught. And "Lillooet, the
Beautiful," nestling like a gem in
its setting of mountains, far, far
removed from the scene of old
world conflicts, was one of the
first to hear the call to arms, when
seventeen of its citizens sprang
to the standard, followed at intervals by many more, all now worthily "doing their bit."
Citizens ! if you feel proud of
this, come along on Aug. 4th,
meet around the flag pole, on
which the Red Ensign so often
proudly floats, and snow by your
presence your appreciation of
what the "Lillooet Lions" are
doing for you. Express, by resolution, which will be submitted to
you, your determination to "see
this thing through." Above all,
grasp the full significance of the
fact that our sons are fighting
for The Square Deal.    •
If every man, woman and child
in Lillooet comes along on Friday,
Aug. 4th, there will he none too
many. Committees are working
to ensure success. Visitors are
coming from outside points to address the meeting which will be
held in the evening. Musical
talent from Kamloops, etc., will
be at the disposal of the committee. In the afternoon it is proposed to hold a sale of refreshments, etc., to swell the Red
Cross Fund. A dance will beheld
in the evening to wind up what it
is hoped will be an invigorating
celebration. More details next
week. W. T. B.

WILL ESTABLISH
TWO PLANTS
Minister of Mines States Government
Plans to Erect Metal Refineries
in British Columbia.
Lorne Campbell, minister of
mines, speaking at Salmon Arm
last week, stated that it was the
intention of the government to
take measures tp secure the establishment of two refining
plants, one at the coast and one
in the southern interior, to treat
British Columbia matte spelter
and blister copper, so that the
province would control metalliferous products of its own mines
in their entirety. He stated that
he had been misquoted when he
was referred to as saying that
we should encourage Americans
to do our smelting and refining.
What he did say was that Americans should ,be encouraged to invest in our mines to help us develop our resources. He stated
that mineral production of this
year will be from five to eight
million dollars greater than last
year, which was the second
largest year the province had
ever seen.
POLITICAL NOTES
Following the announcement of
the date of election, politics have
taken a new hold on the popular
imagination. AH over the country fences are being mended and
barriers erected whereby the rival politicians intend to more carefully influence the movements
and Outlook of the wily electorate. Party leaders may be expected to be on the move
practically from now until the
date of the poll.
W. R. McLean, former member
for Nelson, has withdrawn as a
candidate for Nelson Conservative nomination in favor of Dr.
Rose, who has accepted.
Mayor Alexander Stewart, of
Victoria, has joined the Bowser
ministry as head of the portfolio
of finance.
F. W. Welsh, one of the candidates on the Vancouver Conservative ticket, has given up his
nomination in favor of Dr. McGuire, the new provincial secretary.
There is talk of a new Independent Liberal ticket in Vancouver, with Ralph Smith at the
head.
Premier Bowser has announced
that he will run only in Vancouver.     ;
H. C. Brewster, the Liberal
leader, and M. A. Macdonald, are
addressing well attended meetings on their tour of the northern
part of the province.
Aid. J. S. Bryson, of New
Westminster, who was only beaten by one vote in the contest
with David Whiteside for the
Liberal nomination, is dissatisfied
with both leaders, and is seriously considering entering the field
as an independent.
Of independent candidates, it
begins to look as if there would
be no lack. A group of alleged
anti-Conservatives who include
among their number Rev. J. R.
Craig and Dr. McConkey, are
stated to be working along the
line of getting a ticket into the
field, headed by Rev. A.E.Cooke,
who took a prominent part in
"The Crisis in B.C."

FOOD VALUES.
Food prices in British Columbia are giving serious
thought to the good house- j
wife, and apparently there is
some ground for the charges
laid to the door of the importers and producers in this
province. Compared with
increases in Europe, of course,
we have little to complain of
except it be the rise in sugar
values. Butter is, to a great
extent, imported and consequently stands next to sugar
at the top of the list. On
bacon, tea, flour and eggs,
there is but a comparatively
slight improvement, but beef,
lard and many fresh meat
products show an advance
out of proportion to other
foods. Taking all other necessaries as a basis there
seems to be no valid reason
for the addition of nearly one
hundred per cent, to sugar
prices. According to statistics compiled by the British
Board of Trade, the average
increase in the rjrice of foods
over those obtaining at the
beginning of the war in England is 59 per cent. Comparative statistics go to show
that even in Germany sugar
has not been subjected to the
increase obtaining here. Both
England and Germany are
restricted in trade owing to
war conditions and the natural result is enhanced values.
In British Columbia there is
little or no excuse for advance in food prices. Wei
have a free seaboard and importations of raw sugar, and
other commodities not produced here, are restricted
only by the amount of shipping available. We have a
population of 300,000 people,
while there is arable land
enough to feed millions, if
put into use, and we have
internal means of communication which should enable
us to obtain our requirements
from producing centres at
the lowest possible cost.
Having all these facilities, it
does seem anomalous that the
inhabitants of British Columbia should be mulcted for
their sugar at a higher rate
than any place else on the
globe. Even the governmental departments are perturbed by conditions and are
advising growers and canners
to preserve their fruits without sugar. The Trade Union
Congress, which met in Eng-
landon June 30, demanded
from the government a
searching inquiry into the
question of increased prices
of food and made suggestions
for the prevention of exorbitant charges during the war.
There is just as much reason
why  our  own government
should take a similar step.
The comparatively small sum
on which many families must
live, owing to the enlistment
of their breadwinners, makes
economy imperative, and the
necessities of life should be
obtainable without undue
strain on their limited means.
It is a scandal at a period
such as the present, when
men are shedding their blood
for the Empire, that there
should be companies making
profits which remain huge
after all war imposts have
been deducted. The people
are ready to bear without
complaint suffering that is
inevitable, but they are not
content to suffer in order that
others may pile up profits.
172nd Battalion.
Capt. J. T. Robinson of the
172nd Battalion, will be in
Lillooet on Aug. 4th and will
be pleased to meet all men of

WATER NOTICE
DIVEBSION AND  UBS
Winnipeg, July 15. -Dr. Milton
Hersey of Montreal, head of the I
greatest mining engineering firm |
in Canada, predicts a great ad-
vance for mining in British  Col- j
umbia when the war is over.
In general he found conditions
very good throughout the west, I
the improvement being particularly marked upon the coast, i
Vancouver, for instance, was now1
displaying a spirit of much great-1
er prosperity and optimism.
PROVINCIAL AND GENERALNEWS
Mark Dumond has bought the
warehouse formerly owned by C.
H. Smith, in Ashcroft, and has
opened up temporary quarters
pending the rebuilding of his
store on the old site.
Rita Gates, fifteen years old, of
North Vancouver, dived into the
waters of Burrard Inlet last week
and saved the life of little eight-
year-old Murray Kennedy, who
was playing with another boy on
some booms in front of the Hotel
North Vancouver, when he slipped and fell into the inlet.
Wing Wo Lung has purchased
the sites formerly occupied by
the Inland Express office, Ashcroft, and will begin building at
once.
A real estate boom was created
in Ashcroft since the fire. The
old postoffice corner was bought
yy C. H. Smith and resold by
him to Messrs. Harvey & Bailey.
According to the 1916 city directory, issued last week by the
Henderson Direotory Co., the
population of Greater Vancouver
is estimated at 157,507, which
does not include about 10,000
Orientals. Many false reports as
to Vancouver's loss of population
have been circulating in eastern
cities, the latest one, published
in the Montreal Financial Times,
being to the effect that Vancouver
had lost 70,000 of its population.
Last year's directory estimated
the population at 163,231, exclusive of Orientals. The city assessor calculates the population # of
the city of Vancouver proper* at
•98.(100.	
AN OCEAN GRAVE.
Wave on the wild north sea,
Leap in the northern night.
Wind where the black clouds flee,
Race with the horses white.
A cortege of woe
For fureral flames far blown,
By the blast of an ambush foe,
And a cruiser overthrown.
Here is the funeral pyre,
But where do the mourners thread?
On the high embattl'd Empire
Of England's emblem red.
On a world with war on fire
Drops the despatch of dread,
A bolt dynamic - dire,
"Kitchener is dead."
Darken the morning sun,
Clouds of an Empire's grief.
Never shall England's morning gun
Waken her warrior chief.
The dark blue ocean wave
A deeper glory dyes,
For glory fills the ocean grave
Where the great Field Marshall lies.
His captains with him sleep,
Sound, in the sovereign sea,
And the wild white horses leap
Where the driving storm clouds flee.
- Arthur Martlky.

DESPAIR OF THE DEVIL
The Devil sat by the Lake of Fire
on a pile of sulphur kegs,
His  head was bowed upon his
breast, his tail between his legs.
A look of shame was on his face,
the sparks dripped  from  his
eyes,
He had sent his resignation to
the throne up in the; skies.
"I'm down and out," the Devil
said—he said it with a sob-
There are others that outclass me,
and I want to quit the job.
Hell isn't in it with the land that
lies along the Rhine,
I'm old and out of date," he said,
"and therefore I resign.
One Krupp munition maker, with
his bloody shot and shell,
Knows   more  about  damnation
than all the imps in Hell.
Give my job to Kaiser Bill, or
Ferdinand the Czar,
Or to Sultan Abdul Hamid, or
some such man of war.
I hate to leave the old home, the
spot I love so well,
But I feel that I'm not up to date
in the art of running Hell."
And the Devil spat a squirt of
steam at a brimstone bumblebee,
And muttered "I'm outclassed by
the Hohenzollerri deviltree,"
—Anon.

The B. C. Prohibition Act, on
which the electors of British Columbia will be asked to register
their opinions at the polls, is not
a prohibition act in any sense of
the term. So contrary is it to
the principles of prohibition that
prohibitionists themselves are
freely criticising the measure and
the man who is neither "wet" or
"dry" is asking the pointed question as to what will be secured by
the bill save the building up of
industry and trade at points outside the province.
All of which goes to show that
it is advisable that the elector
who desires to vote intelligently
on the subject should carefully examine the Act before election day.
The "wide open" clause of the
Act, Clause 57, reads in part as
follows:
'Nothing in this Act shall be
Construed to interfere
"(a) With the right of any person to import from without the
province liquor for bona fide use*]
in his private dwelling house."
This clause means that any
resident of the province is allowed to purchase all the liquor he
desires, just as often as he wishes, without any control or regulation by the government, so long
as he sends his money outside the
province for his supply.
This clause would, for instance,
allow any person to place a standing order with any liquor dealer
outside the province for a weekly
or monthly shipment of whiskey
to be delivered to his dwelling.
On such an order the supply of
liquor would reach him constantly as long as he met the bills. In
the face of such conditions the
question may well be asked "Is
this Prohibition?"
In the preliminary campaign in
connection with the bill and at
the present time prohibitionists
have made a grand stand play,
both on the platform and through
their propaganda literature, of
the drunkard and the frightful
evils which accompany drinking.
Yet, in the bill for which they
themselves are admittedly entirely responsible they have done absolutely nothing to lessen the
consumption of liquor in British
Columbia, the sole effect of the
legislation being to send money
spent for liquor outside the prov
ince. Incidentally it may be
mentioned that the drunkard who
already has the taste and the
habit, is the man most likely to be
the first to take advantage of the
privilege to buy outside and,
should the Act pass, would thereafter have liquor in quantity in
his home, whereas he now takes
his liquor by the glass. As the
small boy would say, "What's the
use?"
The great qiestion lying behind the
referendum vote on the prohibition
question is whether the regulated sale of
liqnor under government license and
central is not better than the unregulated and unrestricted importation of
liquor from outside points.

information concerning the Prohibition Act may secure same by
