Id appear to be entirely  wrong t.o forfeit such source of revenue, and thus make it" necessary I'or  tlie Government���������already sorely  pressed I'or funds���������to lind $lo,()u0,-  P00 or $20,000,000 additional, because if is quite certain that wlu.ee  the Patriotic Fund can do for $'. li,J  000,000 per annum would coat tho  Coyer urn cut ?ii0, 000,000, and perhaps more. The fund as if is at pres-  ��������� onL administeredj,is flexible, ar:() may  supply what arid where assistance is  most needed. This can be done hi  an efficient, sympathetic, and economical way. On the other hand, Government administration could not discriminate-between these who hav<j  and those who have not. Hence, -the  enormous difference in the cost to tlie  country, which would mean nothing  short of absolute waste.  The Federal income-tax which is  now in force exempts incomes of unmarried men up to .^1,500 and married men to $3,000 per annum. Therefore, it is safe to say that not more  than one man in fen in this province  will be affected by this tax. That  being the case, what are tho other  90 per cent, going to do, individual!y  to assist in the prosecution of i he 1  war?  The issue of this great struggle  means either national life or death, it  is a case of serfdom or freedom.  Every man must fight cr pay. if j ou  are not directly taxed, you can h'jlp  by assisting to support the dependents  of the men who are fighting and  dying for yen. by voluntarily- supporting thc greatest national fund  Canada has ever had.

Which in your opinion ought  to- be elected? .    '   ������������������  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1917  The dominion elections will takw ,  place on December 17, and if is con-,  lidenfly hoped that the Union govern ,;  ment will carry the day, so that the ,  present plan or 'conscription may be'  carried   out   without  delay. ]  Laying aside all prejudice that may  be brought to bear against either parly, during the past or tho present, we  look straight at the request that reinforcements be sent to Kranco at as  earlv a period as possible. Outside  of tlie request rroin Gen. Curric, we  all realize the necessity of keeping iT1  ihe .war until it is finished. If we  allow our battalions to become smaller without sending men .to replace  the killed and wounded the time will  surely come when there will be no  battalions; and Canada will not be  in the war.  Procrastination is the I hie! of  time. ��������� Delays are dangerous. Now  fheh-e is an organized plan lo send  men to fill the ranks in Frau-*e and if  the Union Government is returned to  power v/e all have every reason to be-  lip'vo ihnl- at a very early date men  will arrive in France from Canada to  fill up thc ranks of the battalions  now there. Any plan of delay would  seem to indicate thc day-when Canada would surely feel that her interest in the war was waning. We all  realize the necessity of continuing in  the war.  CONSCRIPTION is the.one thought,  above   all   others   in   this   election.  The government or party that    uar-  ! a id nes to tlie electors to stay in the  I war is the one that should  be elect-  I ed.     A. promise  to make out a plan  | if elected' is no good, and  not up to  iilie standard  required    by . Canada.  j In   the   eyes  of   tho   nations   of   the.  1 world   Canada  has  established   a re-  ! puuifion  that Canadians cannot   -ol-  ' low political party, to monkey with. It  ' is a  serious  matter. ���������   Canada's  sons  have died for what we believe to be  the   liberties of  the smaller  nations  C'aaada has gone too far now to hait  or hesitate in thc great undertaking.  'there  are  two   candidates   in   the  field   in  this district.  One stands  for  carrying on the war under the present  iUiiiiary :u;t;  while the other ,whne  hei'.oviug in conscription, would lies;-'  La to 'in MI another plan  was  thought  of.     Which do you think should have(  vour support ?  Ono candidate stands for sending  theui right away; while the other  would try again a plan that has .sent,  uiiuiv brave men, but which is not  qu'te fair, because it. leaves it to the  man himself t.o decide. The war has  become so serious now that ilJ is up  to the state to say who shall go and  who shall remain at-home and -how  winy MUST go. .Under the Union  Government-100,000 go in Ihe firxt  draft. They are-needed. Is that, not  the way you have figured it out? It  is a case of MUST.  .Both our. candidates believe in. conscription. Stacey sees nothing-but  Conscription; while.

" -The. world is engaged in ihe greatest  and most awful conflict -that the ��������� human  race has.ever.known. As a part ot the British nation we.are in-the struggle in order to  mmntainiiberty ai.d truth and honor and a  lasting peace among men. Thousands .of  our best and bravest Canadian sons have  paid the supreme sacrifice that these principles .should not perish from -ihe ^ .earth,  thousands-more are .counting their lives  not dear unto them so.thai we and all other  nations may cherishthose ideals which are  the soul and substance .of our civilization.  Stripped of all trimming and verbiage, the  great question-before the people of Canada  today is this: Shallzve set aside our petty  party differ ernes, our affiliations and our  ambitions, and unite with each other in a  solemn purpose, and pledge to be true to our  heroic volunteers to ihe last man and the  For Major Ramsay, the Laurier Liberal candidate, none .of us can have  other than the greatest respect.  Ho is a returned soldier under  the voluntary system. .Has been ip  to the firing line, but owing to misfortune he has been declared' unfit  for the demands of the battlefield.  We arc'honored in having,him as a  candidate, .but sorry that,.he has 'associated himself with a leader whom  many believe cannot'ever again be ma  position to carry out Canadian ideals.  Major' Ramsay is in the ilehj to win  and so far as we know is carrying on  a clean campaign, he being a gentleman, a scholar and one of our returned soldiers. For these reasons,  if we do not feel like honoring him j  this'election,, we may have Ihe very j  great pleasure of doing so at soma |  future date, under different circumstances.  Mr. F. 13. Stacey, the .Unionist candidate sees nothing in this political  light but CONSCRIPTION. He is a  new man in politics, consequently has  nothing-to answer for in the way ol"  things political left undone; neither  can he be blamed for the faults of  aiiv former government. ��������� He was until'recently thc President of the Liberal Association, but left the Liberal bartv -in order to - fight . for conscription. He says in explanation of.  .his present stand that "It is.no time  for party politics, Conscription is tlic  ono issue before the people of Canada today." Mr. Stacey is a, forceful  speaker, besides being thoroughly in  earnest. "The name Win-i.ho-War  candidate could not be better atached  than to the name of F. B. Stacey.  He carries with him a winning smile  'that is sure to stay with-him oven  after the-17th day of December, and  he will represent Westminster riding  in a manner'that will do him-credit  and after the war Westminster district will we trust be. proud that he  was our.choice for the Commons at  Ottawa.

The Prince Edward Island press of  both-parties appear to be friendly to  .the new, regime.

Best Pen    Wyandottes    other  Bananas are not,hard to digest and  are very palatable,'either raw, baked  j or fried, declares Health Officer Lan-  difs. Many people have entertained the  false belief that the banana is not digestible, he says. .Dr. Landis fully  concurs in a bulletin of the New York  Board of Health issued recently, in  which housewives are advised to utilize apples, bananas and oranges as  food. The fruits contain mineral salts,  so they may be used as substitutes for  vegetables. In part the New York bul-  Icua reads:  "Baked apples, unsweetened, with  { the addition of a little butter, substitute or oil, may be used with meat  as a vegetable. So may unsweetened  fried or boiled or roasted slices ot  apple. Apples and rice are an excellent combination. Apple dumplings  with a good sauce are sufficient i'or  a l;s-i( I aon.  "Lana"f>s and oranges are usually  eaien raw, and ia this form they are  quite as valuable as in any other; i-ui  it is a p.tj that '.aken and fried ban-  aims arc riot bett-jj known. Oranges  that are too small and sour to be eaten raw make the best of marmalade.  Bananas and marmalade, bananas  and apple sauce arc pleasant combinations, and all of them are very fine  in combinations with rice.'  Signaller Frank Aish, son of Councillor Ai9h of Matsqui, who was recently wounded, is at a hospital at  Etaples, France, and rapidly recovering.  $8.00   CBEQUIO   GlV-EX  AWAY  A number is given with every  pountl  of Malkiu's Tea.
