Mr. Brewster Says Situation in  Quebec Is Serious Condition, Not a  Theory.  imperative Need    for    Extinction of  Profiterinsr and Political Patronage  Must Weigh Carefully Any Proposal  To Force One Narrow Doctrine.  1-Cecent Resolution Means That  Everything Necessary Must lie  Conscripted.  Victoria, August 13th.���������Prior to  the Winnipeg Liberal convention  Premier Brewster was an ardetnt  and unreserved conscriptionist and  apparently not by any means in sympathy with his Federal leader, Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, says the Vancouver  Province. Following the prairie gathering, however-, he now finds himself able to reconcile his conscription  views with acceptance of Lauier's  leadership, according to an interview he gave out 'here today. Pre-  ier Brewstmer returned yesterday  from Winnipeg. His present sentiments are summarized in the following observations he made this mornings  "We have in Eastern Canada a con  dition, not a theory, and that condition has been brought about by an  alliance of the present administration with the Nationalist party of Quebec. The question then is, shall wo,  who are in favor of conscription,  force our views upon the government  regardless of the fact that sucli methods may mean the creation of another Ireland in Canada, which  would effectually prevent us from  giving the assistance we should to  those who are already in the trenches  fin France and Flanders?"  What Resolutions Mean.  Discussing the convention,its val^e  its meaning and its general effect upon the complex situation in which the  Dominion finds itself today; Hon. Mr.  Brewster said that "while the great  assembly was called in the name of  the Liberal party, it was throughout  arid in all stages a win the war convention.  "The main resolution that is the  one dealing with the prosecution of  the war and the steps necesary to  contribute to its sucessful conclusion  likewise the one having regard to the  betterment of the conditions of those  who are at the front and the men a-  bout to go, are probably the greatest  in the public eye. These resolutions  proceded the Premier, "as already  stated by the attorney-general Hudson of Manitoba, should be taken exactly as they read. The wih-the-war  resolution can be interpreted but one  way, and that is that not only shall  we organize every industry of Canada  but if necessary conscript not merely  for military purposes but for all other purposes of the state in any way  relating to the war, conscription of  men, money and resources."  Sir Wilfrid's Sincerity.  Passing on to the resolution of appreciation to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the  Premier was of the opinion that no  man in Canada who was sincere  Avould hesitate to subscribe appreciatively to the life and works of the  man who had led the Liberal party in  Canada for so many years.  "I doubt if anyone, even his stoutest opponent," declared Hon. Mr.  Brewster "would consider him the  least bit less loyal than those whose  hostility   is   so   pronounced 'at   the  (Continued on Last Page)  Mrs. Cooga'n and children have re-  i.M'ned  ii-j-ii- I'.inh  Bay  where they  w -ro  canning  for. two   weeks.  .

C. ���������  Kill DAY    AUGUST   17,   .HI 1 7.  The trustees of the city of  Vancouver may possibly hold  an investigation into the cause  of Uie'failure of so'many of the  Vancouver pupils failing to enter the high scliol at the recent  examination. An investigation  of this 'kind might be good idea  if . carried along proper lines  and by men who are thoroughly  competent to investigate; and  not stung with prejudice a-  gainst any of the principals of  the public schools of Vancouver  or the province as a whole.  Personally we would like to  see such an investigation as we  believe it might lead to much  better and up-to-date methods  being introduced: There is a  great deal of need for the school  system of British Columbia being turned inside out and have a  real good look at it, and see if  it is really up to the present day  requirements.  The present system was founded, or rather   modelled   after  that of the Maritime provinces,  . a system which has been discarded by the educational authorities of that part of the Dominion and the system of the province of Ontario adopted in its  place.    This is an acknowledgement that the system formerly  in the Maritime provinces was  not up to the standard. .  Our present ' Superintendent  of Education is a Maritime province man and when elected, to  his present position many years  ago he remodelled our    B.    C  system, and   there   was   very  much' need of it, into what he  interpreted the   school   system  of his boyhood.      We wish to  cast no   reflections   upon   our  very   worthy     Superintendent  as he is a very estimable and a  conscientious man.but the question arises, did he make a perfect model or did he make an  imperfect model, or did he make  a model system far superior to  the original;it matters not as  the foundation was of an inferior kind and has.been discarded.  Many of the present day teachers received   their   instruction  under our present B. C. system,  especially those   teachers   who  take the lower grades that instil the first rudiments of knowledge into the young child. And  it is possible that nine-tenths of  the teachers who have charge  of all grades up to the entrance  class of our graded schools are  British Columbia made. Learning under an-.imperfect system  and teaching under an   imperfect system is sure to have its  unsatisfactory results   through  time.  No matter what the grade of  teaching may be in the entrance  work the time lost in the lower  grades cannot be made up and  examination taken with credit. There are many many good  teachers in the lower grades of  the province but they have risen superior to the system under  which they were taught in the  province, or under a better system would have made much better teachers.   It is probable the  best of our teachers, B.C. Made,  received their inspiration at nur  excellent normal school, which  is considered a credit,   to    the  province.  A thorough investigation into the cause of so many failures at Live recent examination  should include an. investigation  into our system. Under an imperfect system no teacher can  l,e blamed forpoor results.  Sometimes the nvm who set  ilie examination papers and tht  men who mark them are not  in perfect touch with our system. No need to go into details  Unless examination papers  are set along the lines taught  from our text books, the results  may not be satisfactory.  It is generally considered that  the recent entrance examinations were fair as examinations  go yet there are several papers  on which many-of the pupils got  very low marks, and in an investigation these should be  looked into: It might show results.  If there is any hope of getting anything cleared up it  would be in the interests of all  concerned to go thoroughly.into  cur school.system.and see if it  cannot be improved. There  have undoubtedly been some  improvements within recent  years, but whether these improvements would affect the results at the entrance is another  question.  Notwithstanding.the fact of a  surtax the government has no  money-for the upkeep of the  Dewdney Trunk road, nor the  extension of the Mission, ferry  service���������both a, necessity, so  that the residents around about  can go around about with comfort and do.business enabling  them to met the taxation.

Canada and    the    United    States  must  cut down  their normal  wheat  consumption by 100,000,000 bushels  to  meet the. needs of Great Britain  and the Allies.    Hon. W. J.

This'   means   at  least   460,000.000   will ' have   to   bo  imported  from  Canada and  the United States There will be under normal consumption in these two countries  only   300,000,000   bushels  surplus for export, and so by special efforts of food conservation the people  of the United States and Canada'will  havo to make up a shortage of 1G0 -  000,000 bushels.

Editorial  There are a great many people wondering what the new sur  tax means.    It    is    simply    a  double taxation by the government.    That is if your taxes a-  mounted to $20,    payable    before the 30th of June last, you  are again taxed   that   amount  whether you have paid them or  not.    You .pay twice this year  under the Oliver-Brewster government.    The reason is simply  because you put .them into power last election.    They want to  uhow what authority they have  when controlling the affairs of  this.fair province.      You   may  not like it, but you will have to  grin and bear, and at the very  first opportunity relegate them  ������������������0 the mud flats of the Delta or  to a canning, factory    on    the  west coast of Vancouver Island.  But some one has truly said  that they, would not object   to  paying extra taxation if there  v/as some explanation given for  . he surtax.    But what's the use  of explanation, the taxes would  have to be paid anyhow.    Some  things are better done in the  dark.  A delegation waited on the  Premier the, other day and ,hc  said in explanation that the  heads of the government were  muddled and Act had been hurriedly prepared, but it was or  would be all right as the govern  ment were going to remedy .all  as they were arranging for ihe  creation of a taxation board.  The premier is afraid the Dominion government ."would  scare them out of the field- and  '���������'We've come," said the chairman  of a political co.mmittee in a south of  Ireland city; "to ask you to take this  nomination.' The city needs a man  like you���������strong, brave, self-reliant,  owning no master, fearing no man."  The great man was visibly touched.  "I'll not deny,' he said, "that your  kind words have shaken my resolution. I trust that, if elected I may  justify your confidence and prove that  I am, indeed, strong, brave, self-reliant;' that I own no master and fear  no man.

It may be a slight exaggeration, but the opposing lawyer seizes it and uses  it to impress upon the jury that this witness is  not reliable.  The Advertiser to-day is on the witness stand.  If he makes mis-statements he is judged accordingly and his entire advertising is mistrusted.  Wide-awake business men .realize this. They  tell the truth in their advertisements; not because  they are better than they used to be; but because  they hav������ learned that it pays.

One. thing Is certain,  every member of. that convention���������  possibly the greatest convention Canada has ever- had���������hopes he will use  his undoubted ability in the carrying  out of their platform."  Hon. Mr. Brewster, declared    that  already the big    interests    were    it  work again crying out for the    conscription of man power only.      The  plea  was going forth that  men and  men alone constituted the great need  tO' the exclusion of .all else.    While  the convention  had  recognized     the  vital necessity of bringing Into effect  the full  manpower     of    Canada  ��������� it  would be folly -to accept this as possible unless the full material wealth  of the Dominion were alike consecrated to tho national service.  What  Veterans are .Doing*  "I notice" recounted the Premier  "that an agitation has already been  instituted and resolutions passed by  the Great War Veterans' Association  and we had a regrettable exhibition  of the lack of knowledge of some of  those participating while In Winnipog  These men like all true Canadians,  are just as anxious to win the war  and support those splendid men atthe  front as were the hundreds who attended the convention, many of whom  have sons and brothers in the khaKi  line of France, while not a few are  mourning the loss .of those who will  never return. ���������...'���������  The desire, of eyery; delegate to  that Winnipeg gathering," he continued, "is identical with that of the  Great War veterans.' But that desire  will never be satisfied so long as the  system of profiteering in war supplies  and promotion through the medium  of political patronage and secret private influence is permitted to continue unchecked by the present ad-  finistration."  From All Angles  In this connection    the    Premier  wished to point out,.what he said was  the comparative uselessness of a continual harping on the one string. Of  paramount importance to the people  of Canada at the present time was  the need of weighing! very carefully  the consequeuce of forcing upon the  country one narrow doctrine. Loss of  perspective in this regard was a serious matter.     It was'a question now  as  to  the  proper  course  to   pursue  in order that Canada's part in aiding  che forces of civilization might be increased.      A false step today would  be disaster and  for that reason he  urged a clear understanding of the  conditions and an awakening to the  fact that as far as the situation    in  Eastern Canada was    concerned    it  was no longer a theory.  One thing that stood out in the  Premier's mind was the imperative  need for the absolute extinction of  the profieteering in! the necessaries of  the nation, which .was nothing short  of trafficking in the blood of Canada's  noble sons.  There should in fact be reimbursement to the people by those whose patriotic duty had become stultified, he  said, by the insatiable greed for gain.
