If you will'notice thai, tho quotation  appears in a part of tho purchased  space gotten by flic Liberals''for fliisj  campaign. .  The Province newspaper is not re-,  sponsible for '-thd quotation of the,  article, from  appearances. I  During a recent" election a quotat-I  ion was much lauded as from the i  Financial Post.. 'Von all remember if;  The amount paid fo the Post for this'  article is not a matter of importance j  nor is the quotation from the Guard-:  ian: hut the question is what was j  paid the Guardian for inserting this I  advertisement in the first paper. Per-'  haps some of the Liberal speakers  will tell us.  Not many true Britishers are proud  to quote from tlie'Manchester Guardian. Ask some old country man a-  boul. the Pro-German sentiments ot't-  on given part expression to.  ' But here is a choice morsel from  the speech for Mr." Fred Wade, K. C,  who appeared in the interests of Mr.  Ramsay. Mr. Wade stated that this  was the first time England had used  conscription, and did not do so at the  beginning of the war. When she did  she did not include Ireland. There  was a desire not to have any more  trouble on her hands than possibly  could-beav.oi'cl'ed.'f-There w.'i3 no conscription during the' South African  war. For reasons which lie-quoted  it would have looked like the newcomer conscripting the old time resident, which might have caused  trouble. England, the mother of  nations was wise. In Canada there  were a class of people of a different  blood than the Anglo Saxon. Borden was asking conscription . for all  Canada. There would never he conscription for all Canada.  Do you get the Liberal Laurier i-  dea? Conscripting all Canada except  Quebec.  FARMERS ORGANIZED  At a meeting or the farmers  from      the north      and      the  south side of the Fraser River  lield in Mission City on Tuesday afternoon the market from  the. farmers' point of view was  discussed,  particularly the potato market and the prices the  farmers believe  they will  get  and the prices they should gee  according to the market elsewhere.     The conclusion arrived was that  there was  something very wrong.  Mr. Sam Smith of Dewdney  was appointed chairman and  J.  A.   Bates,  secretary.  It was decided to organize,  and the following resolution  was  passed  unanimously:  That this meeting    organize  VOLUNTARY  ENLISTMENT  British Columbia���������10% of population.  Quebec���������Less than 2% of population.  CONSCRIPTION  British Columbia ��������� Exemptions  granted 50% to 75%.  Quebec���������Exemptions granted 95%  to 100%.  These figures show that in proportion to population, British Columbia  furnished about eight men to one  from Quebec. The English speaking  people of Quebec have probably furnished their full share of soldiers.  If Laurier wins the election, Quebec rules Canada and English speaking people will have to do the fighting, while French Canadians stay at  home. c ,.  Our soldiers are entitled to a large  increase in pay.  Which Government is more likely  to give our soldiers and their families  fair   and   generous   treatment?  A government dominated by Quebec? Or the Union Government representing the English speaking provinces, which have furnished more  than nine tenths of the soldiers?  The Pope and the Kaiser each  claim to rule by Divine Right.  When the Allies win the idea of  Divine Right to rule will be swept  from the earth forever.  The Pope's peace note was plainly  in favor of Germany.  Is Quebec any more favorable: to  the Allies than the Pope?  PERSONALS  Mrs. R. H. Richardson, of Hatzic,  has received word that two of her  nephews have been killed in the recent heavy fighting in  France.  Mrs. Thomas returned home last  week after a two weeks' stay with  her sister Mrs. McCabe at Skyhomish  bringing her sister and little girl  home with her for an extended visit.

The question of evaporators  for the discussion of the meeting and it was decided That  the meeting was in favor of  the Government taking over the  evaporators and that the president and secretary, with power  to add to their numbers, draft  a resolution to that effect and  bring same in at the next meeting.  The following motion was  then passed unanimously: ;  "Whereas, as after careful investigation, we find that there  is in British Columbia a special Fruit and Vegetable Committee,  advisory to the Food Controller of Canada, whose duty it is to  advise the Food Controller of the actual conditions existing in  British Columbia, with suggestions for the handling   of   same  along economic lines; and whereas this committee composed oi "  T. W. Fletcher, Chairman;  A.  D. Patterson, and' W. E. Scott  Deputy Minister of Agriculture, did see fit on the '5th day.of  November to publish over their signatures a statement in regard ���������  to.the potato situation in British Columbia which, we-believe,  to be earmarked with a decided tone that would tend to bear the  market; and whereas we believe this statement to be entirely  opposite to the actual facts existing, be it therefore resolved that  we, the farmers of Matsqui and Mission Municipality, in meeting this day assembled at Mission City, B. C, utter our protest  against the methods in which this committee was formed or appointed, and do hereby censor the same committee for publishing a report that is not to the best interests of the farmers and  consumers at large:  Be it further resolved that this meeting, after careful reading of the weekly market reports and a careful investigation of  the work being carried on by the Market Commissioner's office  at Vancouver, take this opportunity of tendering to him a vote  of confidence and thanks for the able manner in which he is  handling the situation:  And we further recommend that the farmers of British  Columbia impress on our Provincial Government the great  necessity of market advice and ask them to so extend the Market .  Commissioner's work so that the reports issued by him would  contain the weekly market prices of all farm products (live and ..  dead) in all the important Provinces of Canada and the  United States, and that a copy of this resolution be sent to the  Minister of Agriculture, Victoria, B. C, Premier Borden, Food  Controller I-Ianna, the various Farmers' organizations of British  Columbia and the press.  The following names appeared on  Ihe nomination papers of of Mr. !���������'.  U.

' We hear agread deal these days about the  conscription of wealth; and at the same time  we find big companies figuring out how they are  to estimate so as to meet the requirements ot  the present government for taxation purposes.  Some of them are beginning to think there ..is,  already conscription, of wealth.       .,  The following statement of , Sir Thomas,  White, Minister of Finance, in regard to mining companies' capital for taxation purposes  may serve as an illustration: '.,.,.  ��������� Seven per cent, on "capital" is free; what that "'capital' is  has been expressed by the minister.  ' "For the sake of taxation, you have your capital, .your reserve or rest account, and your accumulated profits, substantially representing the net capital of the company invested in  their business. ,  "But in the case of mining companies you will find many  anamolies such as a company incorporated originally with  $250,000 capital. The property today may be worth $5,000,000  A holding company has been created holding the stock in the  original company and dividends of 15 to 20 per cent are-.being  paid on $5,000,000. ' '  "The taxation applies to the underlying company, but regard  is had to the amount of fully paid-up capital, the values of  reserves, rest, and accumulated property���������the three put together representing the value of the mine. .  ' "Again, in instances where a company bought a property at  $100 000, and spent $150,000 in plant, a discovery of rich ore ran  the valuation of the mine to a million dollars. In the opinion  of the denartment the capital is $250,000. Reserve, rest -ami  accumulated profits make up the balance. The capital of that  mine for purposes of taxation is taken at $1,000,000,  In 1915 no war tax was collected but as the initial Canadian  measure of war taxation, called "Special War Revenue Act" was  retroactive, those companies earning above 7 per cent on capital were obliged to pay 25 per of the surplus profits on two  years operations.  Vote for STACEY and help WIN THE WAR  A PARTY MAN'S POOR EXCUSE  . BOURASSA" DENOUNCES  *" President-Wilson's reply to the  Pope's peace proposal has been vigorously denounced by Mr. Bourassa. in  his paper Le Devoir, he describes  President Wilson's note in the most  offensive terms at his command.  This is not surprising. Mr. Bourassa speaks for the Jesuit wing of the  Church, which is pro-German. From  the beginning of the war the Vatican  has been an ally of the Kaiser, and  in the present time in this emergency in this country the Roman  Catholic Church is the strongest  force we have against Canada's participation in the struggle. The French  hierarchy has publicly voiced its opposition to conscription, and with  certain exceptions, the whole body of  Roman Catholics are opposing the  policy of the Government. The people of that faith, acting under the  advice of their clerical leaders, have  evaded their share ot the responsibility for providing men for the expeditionary force.  It is not only in Quebec, but  throughout every province in Canada the Roman Catholic Church officially has discouraged recruiting.  We admit that there are many exceptions among- the laity, but no man  can travel over this country with his  eyes open, and not be forced to the  conclusion that the most active anti-  recruiting element in the Dominion  is that which is under the control of  the Papacy. Nothing is to be gained  by refusing to look at the facts. In  such a crisis as this the men who are  making the sacrifices and these who  represent them at home, have a plain  duty to direct attention to the situation as it exists.  It is not only in Canada, but in  every part of the British Empire  Rome and its followers have failed to  measure up to their Protestant fellow-citizens in  the performance    of  their  duty.  Mr. Bourassa speaks not only for  himself but for the authorities of his  Church who have been so blatantly  disloyal in Quebec but have been  more careful in their conduct in other parts of the country. Naturally  the rebuff which the President of the  United States gave to the head of  the Roman Church in his activity as  - The candidates labelled by Laurier  and blessed by Bourassa are fertile  in excuses for standing by those  gentlemen of Quebec in their refusal  of support to military effort. Ono is,  that the parade to the trenches  should, be. halted' while it is determined who is going to pay for all  this, and what proportion should, be  levied on eaou interest This excuse  they call . "conscription"of wealth."  and it is made most of in the presence  cf any aud'ence not blessed with iLh  one thing represented to them as  meat needful.  Needless to say this excuse would  not go with the boys in the trenches  in battalions of perhaps only one-  third strength, punished with duties  extraordinarily prolonged because  one man is doin������- the work of three.  What they want is to secure quickly  men for their relief; and the subject of payment they know cau much  better be left for later discussion.  When they come home they will  expect to have a voice themselves in  settlement of the taxation out of  which war expenses are to be paid.  In the meantime, however, the  government at Ottawa- has made a  very substantial 'beginning in levying" upon wealth. There was at the  session of 1916, as a trial measure,  the act establishing the War Profits  tax. This took for the government  twenty-five per cent of all profits  over seven per cent on invested capital made by corporations, or over ten  percent made by individuals. The  operation of this tax having showed  the government that profits unsuspected and improper were being made  because of war conditions, this tax  was increased in lal7, so as to take  io   is  a   substantial   beginning;   but;  of the criticism so far is that while  the  tax  is sufficient on  the smaller  incomes   in   times   like   these   wheri  there is every reason to believe that  it is to .be increased as a result of  the   information   gained   during   the  first year of operation. The substance  so many citizens are absolutely plnoh-  ed by war conditions;  and there. i3  no reason to believe that the union  government will not respond to.public sentiment in this regard.  "Conscription of wealthV. "-��������� .means  means the seizure of property wherever  found,  just  as   conscription   of  man-power means the.taking of men  wherever found.   "    We.are satisfied  that  Canadians  do   not   want .that,  but that, turning from the demagogic  ranters  who  demand  the  impracticable they will  approve of.the sane  course of the. government; in taking  a liberal proportion of the-riches of  the community while .not dicsourag-  ing the thrift they will continue to  produce  wealth.  COUNT ONE FOR THE EDITOR  The people who make mistakes  lead the world. The. perfect people  work for them, running errands and  counting columns of figures.  Only, trifles are always true. Every  great and serious truth has an obverse side which is  also true.  Prof. Billy James was the greatest  psychologist of our day, but the best  he could do in defining truth was  this:  "The truth is simply what will  work."  The genius is not the-man who  never made mistakes, who had a  chance thrust on him. who was e>  dowod and all that;  he is the man  was mcreasea   n i,i<   su ������������ u, --, ^       and w��������� not g���������t,  lor the state��������� flft>    er canlo 1 all pio- the ^  mtkl���������M  fits over seven p.  cert. If the    oW .                         as        ������ound        ftnd  were in excess of fifteen per cent ana  the agent of Germany excites the ire  ,of those who would follow the Pon-  their ballot papers, which should be i tiff even to the surrender of the na-  printed in the English language. tional interest.���������Contributed.  seventy-five per cent of all such profits from totals in excess of twenty  per cent. Thus if a man or concern  with one hundred thousand dollars  capital'made fifty thousand dollars  in the year, the government would  take $32,250, and leave to the company $17,250. This is at least a substantial move towards the conscription of wealth in the form of profits;  and it is not put forward as a finality.  If made from food the government  will take $89 of every $100 profit.  Then there is the income tax, introduced at the session just closed, to  reach those who are not engaged in  commercial business, perhaps, but  who put their money out at interest  for others to" use in commercial business. From this tax the mass of the  people are wholly exempted, since  there is nothing levied on incomes up  to fifteen hundred dollars enjoyed  by single men, or -ap to three thousand dollars of married men. But  on all incomes in excess of these figures there is levied a graded tax,  starting at four per cent., o nincomes  made something fine out of it.  The ouly perfect person you :will  ever meet is the perfect fool.���������Safety  Hints.  Save Tlie Grain  Tn  a  recent copy  of  the  Canada  Gazette is found the following: '  "On and after the first day of  December, 1917, and until the Governor General in Council has by Older declared that the present abnormal conditions have ceased,, no  grain of any kind and no substance  that can be used for food shall be  used in Canada for the distillation of  potable liquors.

Having accepted the unanimous nom-
of ihe recent Union Convention at
.'Abbotsford as of Liberal-Unionist Candidate for ihe Mouse of Commons, I beg to state
briefly the ground upon which I solicit your
' endorsation and support.
' ' The world is engaged in ihe greatest
and most awful conflict that the human
race has ever known. Asa pari of the British nation we are in ihe struggle in order to
maintain liberty cu 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 that we and all other
nations may cherish those ideals which are
1 the soul and substance of our civilization.
Stripped of all trimming and verbiage, the
great question before ihe people of Canada
today is this: Shall we set aside our petty
party differences, our affiliations and our
ambitions, and unite with each other in a
solemn purpose and pledge io be true io our
heroic volunteers to the last man and the
last dollar?' ■ ■ The Union Government policy

regretted that the province had no
