This branch suggests that tlie money should be distributed, on a per capita basis, to  branches of all returned mens and  women's associations to be used by  them for refief purposes at their own  ���������discretion; thus avoiding the usual  high administrative expense and  placing the money, where it can do  most good. ,  ed that with cash in the pocket book shopping can be  done in this town just as easily and with as. much satisfaction as it can be done per catalogue or visiting  van.  In dealing in the home town one has the satisfaction of knowing that the man one deals with helps to  pay the school taxes, and Ihe more purchases made  here the greater the turnover will be for the merchant, and this means 'more taxes, collected from him  to help pay for the schools. A customer gains two.  ways. The money is circulated at home and it helps to  lighten the burden of taxes on those outside of business circles.  To our readers we would sav, give the home stores  a chance to make good. Don't say, oh there is no use  going there they'have not got it.

Buchanan, president of  the People's Prohibition party announced today that a ' petition embodying the results of the recent  convention, has been forwarded to  the provincial government.  The 'Prohibition .Association 'of  British Columbia met ,in convention  in Vancouver en October 25th au.1  2(5th  last.   ���������  There were present 4GS duly accredited delegates. After consideration of the operation of the law,  whi������l\ is now in force in this province, governing the liquor traffic,  the convention instructed its executive to comunicate the following resolutions to the members, of the provincial executive:  .-''���������That this--convention refrains* as  'heretofore from ' making any suggestions regarding the "Governments  Liquor Act" as., faras.it has been  framed, and is being" administered, '  in compliance 'witli-'the terms* of the  Referendum, ' which terms were,  that'liquor .should be. sold by the  Government, and under.. Government  Control,  in  sealed  packages.  "But the convention'- desires . to  point out to the Government that  already these powers so conferred,  have been  flagrantly exceeded in:  '.'The incorporation and operation  of nearly one hundred so-called social clubs, in which liquor purchased  from the Government, is supplied to.  a nominal membership by the glass  as well as in large quantities, these  clubs' perpetuating the worst evils of  the open   bar.  "The convention has ' also evidence before it, that at'the present  session of the Legislature- proposals  are to be made, for amendments to  the Act  providing for:  (a) "The open sale and supply to  the public in hotels and cafes, of  beer and  light wines'.  (b) "The   delegation ' to     Munici-  ,:pal    Councils of'   the'   power    uader  'some form.of Local-Option, to auth-  coal is    back at $9.00 |0I'jze ^hhi said municipalities,  the.  ,   '   ,' isale ol. beer and light wines.

Island, with a seaboard of over 450  miles   that   is   practically   unknown.  . And this in a temperate country between the latitude of 45 dc-g\ and 55  deg.!  The Canadian Pacific is the only  line to send boats to ply up and  down this coast and they only call at  the different ports every ten days or  so. Otherwise these pioneer settlers  have no connection with the outside  world unless it be at the end of the  , Alberni Canal which is so far the  only point where the island railway  meets the west coast.  ���������The west coast is more temperate  than the east; the average temperature for January last year up Quat-  ������ino Sound was 3(3 deg. Fahr. for  August and 58 deg. Fahr. i'or January.  The two industries that keep the  west coast alive at all are fishing  and logging, and all the big salmon-  canning companies of British Columbia have stations here. The first  port of call is Port Renfrew, at the  mouth of the San Juan River, and  hare   the   Defiance Packing Co.   of  . Vancouver put up 2,000 cases of salmon a day in the season. Then up  coast, past the Carmanah Light to  Clo-oose. a great-city ..with a population of about sixty whites and  forty Indians, where tho Nitinat  Cannerv turned out over 55,000 cases  in   1917.

Not a great deal of debris is  coming down. The current is  swung around and cutting into the  banks at new points. So far there h  considered not much danger of disaster, and if today's weather holds,  the river will soon go down again. At  present it is very high. The blacksmith shop on the Dewdney road, be-  twen the Commercial Hotel and the  tracks is surrounded by water.  "The convention protests, that up  power to do these things was confer-,  red upon the ��������� Government by Referendum, and t,hat such powers cannot'therefore be transferred by the  Government to Societies or to Minor-  Governing   bodies." .��������� '  In transmitting ,to the Government "  these Resolutions of the 'convention,  the executive of  the association  has  this to add:  We recognize the    permission    by'.  the result of the referendum vote for -  the Government to engage'in the sale  of liquor, but also we recognize the  limitations  imposed. ���������    ���������  The sale was to- be under, the special control,and ' supervision of,   the .

'  The incorporation .of these clubs,  the sale or liquor by'-them and tlie  proposed amendments vitiate all of  these safeguards.  The traffic in' alcoholic drinks  is being placed in the hands of  those who will profit in' proportion  to the freedom with which it is consumed. >  If the  restrictions of    permit and-  record  are  waived,     there  is    grave  risk   that  persons authorized-^to sell  beer,  will sell^whiskey also.  The operation of the system of  Governments ale is in an experimental stage. The people are entitled  to an opportunity of observating of  its working. If beer is sold freely,  its effects will be indistinguishable  from the effects of whiskey. If sold  under some form of Local Option in  come municipalities it will find its  way 'into contiguous territory where  a majority have voted for exclusion.  Wherever  legal   sale  exists,  illicit  sale will find shelter    and>   conceal-/  inentT and what is worst of all fat- 1  taste  for alcoholic drinks    and    the  habit of    its    use,    will    grow    and ���������  spread.  We stand as always -for the total  destruction of the traffic.  We  declare  that alcohol   is  neither foods, nor  ful stimulant,  of which    is  death.
