$2 PER YEAR
Men, Money and Munitions
*> -   —
The Allies are entering upon
the critical campaign of the war.
The concentration of the complete
resources of the Entente may result in Victory before the end of
the year. Nothing less will suffice. Canada should do her utmost in men, money and munitions,
The record of the Imperial Munitions Board, when it can be
written, will astound the Dominion, says the Toronto News. It
has done tremendous things under difficult conditions and with
amazing speed. But the need for
accelerated output is as great, if
not greater, than ever before.
Transportation difficulties must
be solved, new factories constructed, and night and day work
carried on if the Dominion is to
maintain its splendid record.
The astounding total of the
British "Victory Loan" is a lesson to financiers, the manufacturers, the business interests and
every man and woman in the
country. We have done weli in
the past in subscriptions to war
loans. New loans which are to
be floated should be received in a
manner which will not compare
unfavorably with the latest splendid response of the British people.
The need for supplying men
continues to be one of the gravest problems before the country.
With four divisions in France,
and the opening of a campaign
which may prove to be one of the
most costly and most bitter of the
war*■•ife most *• prepared
heavy losses. Our honor is involved not only to maintain. existing units in the firing line but
to increase, if possible, the'num-
ber of divisions at the frout. The
record of the Government which
has recruited 400,000 men is sufficient proof that the Cabinet is
fully alive to the military position
and determined to represent the
Dominion to the fullest degree in
the firing trenches.
'■ Whether the Government decides to enforce the Militia Act,
or whether it determines upon
other measures calculated to the
same end, there should be a unanimous response from the country
and a loyal support of the Ministers. The men must be secured.
The record of the new Minister
of Militia is already sufficient to
justify complete public confidence
in the work of his department.
Sir Edward Kemp may be depended upon to get the men. It
is for the country to uphold the
measures he finds essential.—

The cattle ranchers in Cariboo
and Lillooet districts are reported
to have had an exceptionally
prosperous season. With half a
million dollars distributed among
them in exchange for seven thousand head of beef cattle shipped {
last fall, with every prospect of
their stock coming through the
present comparatively mild winter and with both cattle and horse
(narkets showing a marked upward tendency, their position is
very satisfactory and the outlook
is bright. Indications are that
beef on the hoof will be at least
a cent a pound higher next fall,
while yearling cattle will be selling around $40 a head, instead of
$35 as has been the case for some
years past.

A VALIANT DEFENDER
As the loyal henchman of
the late B. C. government,
Mr. Pooley feels it incumbent
upon him to defend the actions of his former employers, and it may be reckoned
to his credit that he stands
to his guns. But these guns
are very indifferent weapons
and his powder is ba,d. His
artillery bears signs of the
wear and tear it received in
the election campaign, while
his explosives seem to be of
the nature of those which
are reported to have been
brought back to a merchant
by an angry customer with
the complaint, "this here
powder's been used afore,"
It will need something more
than Mr. Pooley's jocularity
to remove the general impression that the late government wasted the resources
of the province and were
careless of its welfare. While
he is a fairly competent
skirmisher, he scarcely brings
to the debate the weighty
arguments that would be required to defend the manipulation of the P.G.E. funds,
or the deplorable eareless-
ness with regard to the Dominion Trust.
A BASELESS CANARD
Among the rumors that
have recently been floating
about at Victoria, perhaps
the silliest is the one which
has maintained the possibility of Sir Richard McBride
coming back from London,
and once more becoming an
aggressive force in British
Columbia politics. There
have been those who have
said that he will not submit
to the inevitable cut to be
made in his salary as agent
in Britain of this province,
and that if any attempt in
that direction be made he
will come back and see about
it. What could he do? Sir
Richard sat into the game of
politics in British Columbia
as long as it suited his purpose to do so, and when he
found the game was up, he
wisely retired, being letdown
easily by Mr. Bowser, who
aspired to his place. If Sir
Richard came back, it would
be to face music of a different kind from what he was
accustomed to in days of
yor«.
He would find a government in power one of whose
pledges is a reform of the
Civil Service System of the
province. Would this be favorable to him? Inconvenient questions might be ask
ed, such as what is the actual
worth per annum of an agent
in London anyway? What
does the agent do for his
salary? Those who are familiar with the B.C. office in
London know that it is about
the most dead and alive place
in the great metropolis. The
salary of $15,000. that Sir
Richard receives, is far in excess of any services he can
render as Agent General. To
come down to hard pan, the
office is chiefly a sinecure.
But it might be useful and
be worth a moderate salary,
if it were held by a business
man of commercial training.
British Columbia is not in a
position torjay an ornamental ex-premier an exhorbitant
salary to attend more or less
unnecessary functions of a
ceremonial character.

THE U.S. AND WAR
At the time of writing it
seems at most inevitable that
the American nation will be
drawn into the whirlpool of
the great European conflict.
'The "overt act" has apparently been committed, and
though a handful of senators
blocked the passage of the
bill that was to give President Wilson the power he
wanted, they have been raked fore and aft by the expression of the outraged feelings of the country. For a
situation has arisen in which
the Government of the United States must adopt one of
two courses. It must (1)
under duress of terror renounce its rights under law
and specific treaty, suffer the
slaughter of its citizens and
the destruction of its property, or (2) it must defend
its rights by force. It is
therefore felt that it is a
time when the country wants
a leader, a man to stand
boldly and firmly representing the spirit and purpose of

In reviewing the recruiting returns of
the different provinces of the Dominion,
one is profoundly impressed by the splendid response made by the manhood of
British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.
This record is indeed one to be proud
of, but there are still a very large number
of eligible men in the Provinee who for
various reasons have been prevented from
doing their duty, and it is to these that
the Officer Commanding No. 19 Company
Canadian Army Service Corps
with Headquarthrs at 1117 Seaton Street,
Vancouver, B.C. issues this appeal.
Instructions   have  just been  received
from Headquarters to enlist men of the
following trades and occupations for overseas service with the above corps.
Horse Transport Drivers
Supply Clerks
Mechanical Transport Drivers
Bakers ' .    Butchers Farriers
Wheelers      Blacksmiths     Saddlers
Electricians Fitters & Turners
The advantage of a man being able to
work at the occupation he works at in
civil life will be apparent.
The men as recruited will be given a
little preliminary training here and sent
forward in drafts.
Any further information in this connection will be gladly furnished on application to the above address (1117 Seaton

THE U.S. AND WAR
/
a self-respecting people.
In a sense the American
nation is but ill prepared for
war. Yet it posseses resources which time and energy
may easily turn to war accounts. It is reckoned that
there are 21,000,000 males
between the ages of 18 and
45, and that approximately
5,000,000 are available for
national service. America
at this moment has the largest gold reserve in the world.
Moreover she has unlimited
food   resources;  50,000,000
head of sheep, 40,000,000
head of cattle, 67,000,000
head of swine. As for mineral production there seems
to be no limit, and for the
production of munitions the
United States is ready and
already at work.
But it remains to be seen
whether the national spirit
at all approaches what it was
in Abraham Lincoln's day.
The American nation is emotional and easily worked up
into the vigorous expression
of feeling. But war is a different thing from processions
and flag waving.
Do not forget the Dance
