They accorded the selected  candidate a most enthusiastic reception and 'pledged him their support,  predicting a sweeping victory should  oposition be forthcoming. Old political animositeis were apparently forgotten and the utmost unanimity prevailed.  Mr. Chas. \V. Munro, the Liberal  nominee, who withdrew recently in  order to pave the way for a Union  convention, declined, at the outset of  the meeting to accept nomination.  Through President Stacey of the Liberal Association he announced that  domestic reasons would prevent Id's  accepting any nomination at this time  It is understod that the illness of  his wife is the chief cause of his retirement.  Nominations were made by ballot  and nine names were suggested by  the delegates.

Ramsay of Chiliiwack, a veteran of the present war  having but lately returned from  France and Flanders, where he saw  service with the 102nd Battalion,  was the choice of a fairly representative Liberal convention held here on  Saturday last in the Victor Theatre.  On Monday his nomination was made  as (be champion HtaiKlii.rdboaror Co  the Laurier Liberals in the present  election. ' i-  The selection of Major Ramsay was  made unanimous by' the withdrawal  of Mr. George M. Murray, a Vancouver newspaperman. Mr. Murray, in  ��������� w.itl-uli'cWi'ir.^v-'-wdc;-" teudertd" a- great;  ovation, it being declared that by bis  -action he had, turned wliat would  have been a defeat into a, moral victory. He was later chosen as president of the newly formed association  which will organize the campaign for  the major. >  The formation of a new association  was made necessary by the proceedings of Saturday morning when the  officers of    the    district    association,  were read out of the party for having  attended   a   fusionist  gathering.  Following the action the convention  declared itself to. be a free and open  meeting  ot   Laurier Liberals,   calleu  together  by common    purpose    and  common  desire   to   nominate  a  candidate for political honors.  This was not accomplished, however,   without some  discussion.  Messrs Donald Downie, F. C. Wade  K.C., C. L. Patterson, C. L. Merritt  and other well known Liberal campaigners of other days and constituencies were present. It was Mr.  Downic's active, and apparently unsolicited participation in the meeting  Mini led (o Ihe discussion of credentials and lhe right of "outsiders" to  .ai-e part in the deliberations of lhe  meeting.  Mr. Murray led his forces against,  the admission of the visitors to the  ������������������onnsels of the party, and met his  iirst defeat when the meeting decided to allow Mr. Downie to occupy lhe  ilooi- and the attention of die nieei-  Jng as long and as often as he pleased. Mr. Wade had previously been  admitted to the good graces of the  assembly by announcing himself as a  messenger 'from Sir Wilfrid Laurier.  During the luncheon recess his status ���������,  developed into that of a "technical  delegate.'' and improved again when  lie ���������made the announcement that he  was an erstwhile resident of the riirf-  triet. having a summer home on the  North Arm.

JCvory citizen is probably ready  to accept Llie abslracl. priucipte  that tho practice of thrift and  economy, with (.ho object of ac-  cum.nuiating   the  wherewithal  i'oi'   purchasing .war  bonds,   is  good for his compa.trioln;   but  not all o!" us have applied that  iirniciple to our,  personal   affairs to the extent that is desirable.    It may not thou  be out  of place fo briefly outline practicable methods of    saving    by  which each one may get. together'  some  additional  dollars  or  hundreds pf dollars for the admirable- purpose of  lending, to  the government.   ,     When the  way is thus plainly charted, refusal to take it is more likely  .to  involve us  in  trouble with,  our respective consciences.  The expenditures of individual producers are mainly ua-  der the following heads: rents,  board, or interest on mortgages  semi-capital outlay on such  things as house furniture, pianos, victrolas, motor cars, etc.,  wages paid to domestic or personal servants; provisions; a-  museincuts and tile outlay on  tobacco, beer and spirits; holidays or vacation. Probaly if |  any of us sit down and severely  analyze the personal expenditures as above classified, we  should find a field for war loan  savings under several of the  heads. In view of the urgency  of the Allies' need of funds, it is  essential that every one overhaul the expense account with  the object of saving every possible dollar for supporting our  great cause. It has become bad  form during the past three  y-jars to give ostentatious or expensive entertainments and social functions; and similarly,  car amusements, recreations,  hoiidayings, have taken on a soberer aspect. A certain amount  of expenditure in this time is  necessary in order to sustain  health and maintain, productive  ��������� capacity. It is for each one of  us to say to liis conscience that  his outlay for such purposes  canot be further reduced with  out injury to health or impairment to energy. If we cannot  say this, there is only one thing  to do��������� and that is to apply the  knife, and divert the salvaged  funds into the war loans. As  regards the outlay on provisions  and the expenditure on tobacco  beer, whiskey, wane, etc., we  should have the courage to apply the same rule. In the cases  .������::' (he poor and of people of  a;;-dorate means, the high prices have already forced them  to  practice the severest ecoii-j  omy in   connection  with  their j  ,. ������������������-���������������������������.. i  expenditures    for provisions���������j  but the well-to-do and the rich;  Ort :i, in some instances, do good  i:'.rvlce '/> their country and to  m.uiki/iU through further regulation of the kind referred to.  To get good results and    to]  make healthy   or   satisfactory  "recoveries" from the expense  account, which will be available  for war loan subscriptions, it  is necessary to have the hearty  co-operation of the female  members of the family; In  many households it is the case  that the women are more enthusiastic savers than the men,  and far more ready to cut out  the expenditure on non-essentials; and in the households  where they still spend money  freely for things they could do  without, it is probably because  they do not realize the grave Issues that are at stake, and the  great importance of having-every family conserve its monetary resources.  Sel'f-dcnial in the matter . of  buying new furniture, pianos,  etc., if generally or universally  or universally practised, would  give the Finance Minister- many  additional millions of dollars  for carrying on the war. With  respect to automobiles used for  pleasure it is not only the capital expenditure that is lost to  the national expenditure, but  also the cost of operating o.  running the cars. For-example  if a well-to-do citizen enters into an agreement with his conscience, that owing to'the warj  he will postpone for two years j  the purchase of a $2,000 car,1  perhaps  the. loyal  observance  by him of this agreement would  sot free $3,500 in tlic'.two years  for war loan purchases. To a  certain extent,, this applies to  purchases of furniture, etc. In.  view of the sacrifices made every day by the members of our  expeditionary forces, it shouh  not seem hard for "stay-at-  homes" to defer for a, year-or  two the purchase of new furniture or other items not absolutely necessary. A careful analysis in- each individual case of  the several subdivisions of personal expenditures, if undertaken in,the right spirit by a million Canadian families, might  lead to the provision of a,if extra  $100,000,000 in the course of a  year for war purposes.
