A beautiful collection of dianthi  came to the Press o/Iice this week  from the garden of Mrs. A. McPherson. Why is it that every  flower raised by one person will  reach such perfection, while others  may handle the same plants in thc  same soil and in the same way, and  the flowers do not compare either  in beauty or development? It's her  heari touch that makes the difference.  A meeting of the local Liberals  was held in K. of P. Hall last Friday  for the rpurpose "of organizing for  the campaign. Mr. K. C.

Why is prohibition?  Stop a moment,, and think.  President Hadley of Yale, says that "virtues  like temperance and morality, industry and  peacefulncss, have their chici' source and support  in men's hearts. They do not consist in abstinence from certain acts which can bc compelled by  law. They mean self-restraint and self-devotions"  By-the-by, have you studied thc Prohibition Act  which British Columbians arc asked to vote "yes"  or "no" upon at the September elections?   If you  hibited. It docs not mean that liquor manufacture and distilling is to bc discontinued, nor that  liquor selling is lo bc legislated out of existence.  Prohibition simply means (if it carries) that the  present licensed and regulated system 'of selling  liquor will bc legislated away, and in its place is  to bc set up the bar in the home, in the .cellar, and  behind closed doors, where it cannot be observed  or regulated. Prohibition means that our distilleries may go right on producing thc stuff, but in  order to sell it they must first ship it across thc  -have^not^'ou-should^lt-is-Avorth^  prohibition?

C. A booklet has been issued by  Merchants' Protective Association under thc title,  "The Truth About the Prohibition Act." The  Merchants' Protective Association-is-opposed to  prohibition and in favor of the present licensed  and regulated system, and, naturally, thc booklet  presents the weaknesses in the proposed Prohibition Act in the most glaring fashion.   But it is  lir.   It presents every section of thc Act, with  riticism here and there of its weak points, and  one can read thc sections of the Act themselves if  not satisfied with thc criticism. By this criticism,  along with the Act itself, onc can get a very clear  idea of what Prohibition (with a capital P) docs  and does not mean. Prohibilion docs not mean  that liqour cannot bc had within the Province. It  does not mean that liquor drinking is to be pro- of fanaticism, except our own.  one  month one drug store alone sold 171 barrels of  whiskey, besides hundreds of gallons of brandy,  rum and gin, and all on doctors' prescriptions.  People who do not drink booze, but take their  inspiration from a cup of tea, or. coffee, or some  soft drink, do not think the other fellow needs his  glass of beer, or something stronger. And, perhaps they arc right. Indeed, we arc sure of it. No  doubt he would be better off without his booze,  just as they would be belter off without their cup  ol* milder inspiration. But lie docs not think so,  nor do they. At least 80 per cent of the people  who consume liquor do so because they deem it  necessary for lhcir health, just as tea drinkers believe about tea, or coffee drinkers about coffee,  and so on.  All of which goes to show that wc Canadians  arc pure and free from all kinds and conditions  Manager Bobbs, of. the Enderby  Opera'House was notified Thursday  last that the great moving 'pictures  showing   Britain   prepared   would  be shown in Enderby on Monday  evening, July~31st.    Time was rtoo;  short- for  suificient   announcenicn'l  to be made-throughout Ihe dislrict,:",  yet   the  attendance' at  the- Opera ;  House was very large. The pictures  proved to be all'that was previously '  claimed  for them. --From  start to  finish of the 2 1-2 hours' show,,the.  audience watched with, intense interest tlie unfolding of the gigantic  task Britain has to perform.    The  pictures   were   clear   and   true   in  every minute "detail, showing How  Kitchener's  army was  made, how*  the  women  and  girls of  England  are  working  in  thousands  in   the  munition   factories, etc., and   then  showing in all it's might and power  the grand fleet as_it;j)atrols,_ni_gh_t_,  "and ��������������������������� day   the  North  _������������������ea,   keeping  silent watch over thc destinies of  lhe  Empire, and  making way  for  thc ships of neutral and allied nations.   Thc pictures could not have  been belter, and everyone of lhe ten  reels helcl the interest of the large  audience.  STILL   WANTING MEN  --Indicating the pressing need-for-  harvesl workers in the Prairie Provinces, a telegram was received in  Vancouver Monday wanting to  knoW how many of the 20,000 men  required in the field could be got  from B. C. So' far as British. Columbia is concerned, it i.s estimated  that between a thousand and eleven  hundred men will be available.  Wherc thc_Rroiuns Live  A Chicago man was invited by a  New York friend to call on him  whenever'he happened lo be in that  citv. "Don't think of going lo a  hoicl," he said, "but come to my  house any time, day or night, and  you will always be welcome."  Just for fun, the next time the  Chicago man was in New York, he  waited until about half past two in  the morning and Ihen went to his  friend's house. "Docs Mr. Brown  live here." he asked the sleepy  maid who came to the door.  "Yes," she replied, "carry him  in."  ^_  Patriotic Dance at Mara  A Patriotic Dance in aid of the  Bed Cross will be held in the M. M.  & A. A.

"Before I left the capital  for the Interior, we had received no less than 250  applications for loans under that Act, and at the  present time there are altogether about 450 applications in. The amounts range from $100 upwards to $10,000, and we are expecting more. I  merely'men tion. these things to show how quick  the people arc to take advantage of the Government's proposals, and the faith they have in thc  party that has placed this matter before" them."  "This Act," said Mr. Mason, cannot but be of  the most beneficial character to the agricultural  community. It is so designed lhat a man on a  farm may bc in a position to secure thc money he  requires for improvements on his farm, or for the  purchase of callle and implements, all of which  arc essential towards development. Of course,  wc arc only a I thc; beginning of it. When it once  gets into full operation il will bring about a condition of affairs that will bc reflected in the prosperity of British Columbia from every point of  view."  Mr. Mason docs not blink his eyes to the fact  lhat thc Conservatives have a hard campaign before them. Thc people's minds have been  poisoned, hc says, with misstatements made by  their opponents, and it will require an energetic  campaign to counteract the Liberal speeches.  "But wc shall win," he declared. "Of that there  is not tlie slightest doubt. Many of thc scats are  quite safe for the Government, but there arc  others in which wc shall be obliged to educate the  electors on thc same ma Iters on which there is  considerable doubt, and wc will do that with  good results."

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 1916  GET A TAIL HOLD���������������������������AND HOLD  Wc hear a lot about "forging to thc front,"  "laking time by the forelock,"'"seizing the bull  by the horns," and lhe like; but in it all the man  with the tail hold is entirely ignored. Nine men  out of ten wisely follow, and succeed, where onc  docs charging around lhe front all the time. If  you miss the forelock, seize the tail. It is the  hanging on that counts. And the man will go  just as fast and nearly as far, who has a tail-hold  as his brother holding to thc forelock. Besides, a  tail-hold is easier than a horn-hold. So don't be  loo anxious to get rapidly to the front. Hang  on to what you have, and you will get ahead in  the world as last as you deserve.  THIRD YEAR OF WAR BEGINNING  Today will end two full ycars of war in Europe.  Some people see in thc recent offensive of the  Allies the beginning of the end. They expect to  see the men out of thc trenches by Christmas.  While this optimism is very good, and 'tis belter  Car than looking through blue glasses and seeing  nothing but death and destruction awaiting all  thc combatting_nations.JLis^^  in the present move of thc Allies, or any move  that they.might undertake this season, anything  to warrant thc idea lhat the Allies will soon bc  victorious. There is good reason lo believe that  the troops will pass another winter in the trenches. This seems to be the view of mililaryjnen  who have followed lhe war in all ils phases.  Formidable as has been the combined offensive  of the Allies, lhc ground gained during the past  _mon I Iris smallVudecd,y compared to \\dfat TinTsl  yet'be taken if the Germans are to be driven oul  of France and Belgium, Serbia and Poland. It  may never be accomplished; it may never have  lo be accomplished, for Germany may yet conclude thai surrender would be thc better part of  valor. We do not believe Germany will ever  surrender; we are sure England and her allies  will not. Then il must be fought out. Such  being thc case, anyone can take the war map of  Europe loday and"trace lhe armies as ground is  won and lost on lhe different fronts, and lhe calculations of one as lo when peace will conic again  may be as near right as the calculations of another���������������������������even the best military expert, engaged or  nol engaged on lhe fighting fronts.  PROSPECTS ARE BRIGHT  Thc following dispatch speaks lev u_clf:  Winnipeg, July 2(i.���������������������������Thc trial of Sir Rodmond Roblin, James H. Howdcn and George H. Coldwcll must  proceed at once. Mr. Justice Prendergast this morning refused to allow the crown's requsct for severance, permitting the trial of Coldwcll and Howden to  precede that of the'ex-premier. The three ex-ministers  stood and heard thc indictment formally read. They  were not plaeed in thc prisoner's dock.  "How say you, are you guilty or not guilty?" asked  the clerk.  "Not guilty," replied Howdcn, Coldwcll and Roblin  in turn.  "On alf counts?" asked the clerk.  "On all counts-," replied the accused.  Three years ago .there was not a more popular  and respected political leader in Canada than Sir  Rodmond Roblin. His had been a useful career  in Manitoba, and the electors fairly idolized him.  Hc was a* man of power in many. ways. But hc  failed. Today hc, wilh others of his ministers, is  charged with felonious conduct in connection  with provincial affairs while he was premier of  Manitoba. Strong as he was, Mr. Roblin was not  strong enough as the chief executive of the Province in dealing wilh affairs of state or of politics.   Hc sacrificed himself to his party machine.  Thc rise and fall of the Conservative government of Manitoba, and of lhe Liberal government of Saskatchewan, have in them a lesson  for thc other provinces in the Dominion. Wc  hear on all sides thc crying out of thc people  against corruption in politics. The average man  is holding more closely to principle and less to  politics these days than ever before in Canada.  He is beginning to speak out against thc men who  have presumed to lead in politics. Why? Is il  not because thc leaders have failed to lead? On  the contrary, have they not been led���������������������������machine  controlled? And the machine, having no personality, no soul���������������������������and no principle bul lhat of  gelling and holding power for thc patronage in  it���������������������������has failed, as ever before, to see in the signs  cd'-the-liines-lhe"a|)proachingcataclysnirand^as":V  result, Roblin and his ministers went down.  When such a crisis comes in the life of a political party as came to Roblin and the Conservatives of "Manitoba, what lhe people term the  "machine" in politics, proceeds at once to pile on  more steam, and to use the party whip on the  backs of adherents.

Manson. minister of  agriculture,*on his return lo thc coast after touring the interior with Premier Bowser. II was  admitted that in one or two places there was  some heckling, bul said that from one end of the  Province to the other lhere is ample evidence that  Premier Bowser will he decisively sustained at  the polls at lhe September election.  "One of the best pieces of legislation plaeed on  the statute books was  the Agricultural Credits  ..was_soi.m_Saskatchcwan_;undci,_Liberal  rule; il was so in Manitoba under Conservative  rule; it was so in Dominion affairs under Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Il seems to be lhe ultimate aim of  each ol" thc old parlies lo make their political  machine as complete as possible. And lhcy are  prepared to move oceans and mountains in order  to give the steam roller room to move. But just  about this time, when they  think everything is  working finely, the electors, very awkwardly but  effectually, put their foot on it, and the "machine"  i.s no more���������������������������until the other party builds up ils  machine.  Sir Rodmond Roblin is only suffering for lhe  actions of men in his own party���������������������������men whose  hands were "greased" by lhc parly machine.  Because of Iheir attitude toward lhe independent  voters, wilhin thc party and outside oi" it, thc  electors turned against them and put the machine out of business. There is the "quiel"  vote in all parlies. It is composed of men who  think more than they talk. This is the vote that  upsets all calculations and defeats sure things.  This vote holds the balance of power at all times.  Switched from onc candidate to the other puts  the other candidate in, against any and all combinations pul up by the party machine.  Thc public trusts many a man with an office  that his butcher wouldn't trust with a pound of  bacon.  FRESH  FISH  EVERY  THURSDAY  GEO. R. SHARPE  WHOLESALE^RETAIL^BUTCHER;  E. J.

Armstrong. fr  Thursday, August 3, 1916.  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  BIRTH OF INDIVIDUALISM  Emerson says: "Idealism has its degrees. It  first comes as a toy (the magnet was once a toy),  then its birth dawns upon ns-in gleams arid fragments. Then its .countenance; waxes-', stern and  grand, and we see that it must be true. It now  shows itself as ethical and. practical. ;We learn  that God is; that He is ihjrne!" ���������������������������  This is the birth of individualism now sweeping  over the world. A great searchlight has- been  turned upon the peppleV aiid/iiidividualism has  been born in men. Never before have we observed such a'manifest'desire lojuiow, each for  himself, and lo acl independent of direction or  coercion as al the present, time.  The religious world is already feeling the effect  of a new inspiration which has been at work removing barriers, taking down sectarian lines, elc.  In the aids and sciences, do we nol sec this free  spirit moving? In fact, in all 'the departments of  hi'c wc feel the breath of freedom permeating  and blessing with ils wide margins. Bul in our  strong advocacy of. freedom we wish tp make a  broad distinction between license and freedom.  License acts outside of law; it is.not loving and  therefore not legitimate in its operations.  And in the common a flairs of life, satisfaction  is expressing itself in thc minds of. the people,  even though it has'not yet been manifest in  ail'airs. Shall we nol open-wide lhc, door to this  new influx of divinity, this breath of the Holy  Spirit which ihe risen.Christ would breathe forth  upon.the world? "Did not our hearts burn within us?" asked the disciples onc of thc other after  'the risen Christ had been made manifest to them  by thc way. And so llie very atmosphere burns  with new influx of lhe Divine, for it comes as a  'consuming fire,' burning up the debris of the  past; and opening up new vislas which; inspire  wilh beauty ancl promise���������������������������H.

Trades and Labor Councils of  Coast   Cities   Pass   Strong-  Resolutions ��������������������������� Reasons  Why  Workingmen  Should   Vote  Against   the  Bill.  Organized labor has declared its  position with reference to the B.C.  Prohibition Act with no uncertain  sound, the result of close investigation of and keen discussion on Ihe  bill having resulted in lhe straight  "declaration by the Coast labor  bodies that ihe Act should, bc condemned and that workingmen of  Brilish Columbia should.'do all ,in  their power to defeat the measure  a I the polls.  The Vancouver Trades and Labor  Council, the most representative  central labor organization in British Columbia, at ils meeting on July  20lh, passed a strong resolution  against the Act, the closing paragraph reading as follows:  "Resolved   lhat   the   Trades  and    Labor    Council   in   Vancouver, B.C., in harmony with  representative    bodies    of   organized labor elsewhere, places  itself on record as opposed to  the  Brilish   Columbia   Prohibition Act  and   to  the principle  involved therein."  In adopting the above resolution  lhe  Vancouver Trade  Council Avas  bul following the steps of the New  Westminster    Trades    and    Labor-  Council which on June 1-lth passed  the following resolution:  "Resolved that this Council  go on record as opposed to  . prohibition as contained in the  proposed bill, from an economic and social standpoint  and report this decision to the  various'unions, with thc request that thev help to defeat  the Bill."  The resolutions above noted are  in line with the action of the Victoria Trades and Labor Council and  lhc Prince Hupcrt Labor Council.  ON THE WESTERN FRONT  July closed, after five Aveeks of  continuous hard fighting, with the  position of the British and French  forces on the Somme entirely satisfactory. Thc fact that the British  were able to resume the-offensive  so soon after the unsuccessful German counter attacks of last week,  in which strong German forces  were brought forward, is regarded  as a good augury. The fighting has  been of the fiercest character, the  Germans working with their utmost  strength to prevent thc British  from advancing to their third line  positions. The German counter attack recently delivered against the  French front proved equally unsuccessful, and the Entente. Allies  noAV are fighting slowly in the  direction of Combles, which is only  two miles distant from Guillemonl,  now in British hands.  According to reliable estimate  the British and French together  captured since July 1st, 26,000. prisoners, 140 guns and hundreds of  machine guns.  The British casualties during the  month of July were 7,08*1 officers  and 52,591 men, including killed,  wounded and missing.  CONFIDENT OF VIC TORY  Workinjrmen   Have   a   "Kick"  Cominir  The    discussion    in    connection  with  the  passage  of these  resolutions   showed   plainly   thai   workingmen   believe   they   have   a   just  "kick" ih connection with the Prohibition Act.    It was staled thai the  measure i.s class-legislation  of the  rankest type, inasmuch as it allows  the man of means lo secure all the  liquor  he  desires  by   importing  it  from   outside   points,   but   at   the  same time places a handicap on the  workingman   who  can   only  afford  to buy his beer by the glass.   This  argument i.s directly along lhe line  of    Ihe    remarks    by    Mr.    Parker  Williams,   member, for   Newcastle,  on   discussion   of   Ihe   Bill   in   thc  House,   when   he   openly   declared  the Acl lo be class legislation, and  stated   lhat  while  he  "would   vote  for prohibition that would prohibit  he  would   never have  anything to  do with such lop-sided, jug-handled  imitation such as thc present bill."  The Act is also objectionable to  trades unions inasmuch as many of  ils clauses were declared to be un-  British and unfair.    It was pointed  out that clause 20 provided tliat any  person  could  tell  a  constable that  he suspected a man  had liquor illegally  in  his  possession.    On this  information,   and   without   disclos-  '" i ng~ I he" ri a in c' of the i n f o rm er, tlie  constable could enter a man's house  break   into  all   the  rooms,   closets,  etc., without a warrant.    Such provisions were severely criticised by  members  of the  labor  councils as  absolutely   opposed   to   the   British  idea   that   "A   man's   house   is   his  castle."  In taking the action they did, the  councils were also moved by Ihe  ���������������������������_J'_e_cl.ingJhaLlhey_shp.ul(l..*su|)p.o'i:ttlie  large body of -workingmen who are  loday either directly or indirectly  engaged in connection with the  operation of licensed premises. Il  was slated that 3,700 men are now  I bus employed, and that (i.000 tier-  sons are dependent upon Ihem for  a living. This does not include over  1,200 employees of licensed premises who are now at Ihe fronl. As  the Prohibition Act would mean  lhal these men would be thrown oul  of work, the councils considered  thai legislation leading to such  action, especially at this lime  should   be   vigorously   opposed.  .Many delegales who took part in  the council discussions said lhat  they were prohibitionists. They  stated, however, that they were opposed lo the Act because it was not  a Prohibition Act in any real sense  of Ihe term, provision being made  in it for the purchase of liquor by  importation or otherwise, just as  freely as is now Ihe case. They  plainly stated lhat they did not consider a vote against Ihe Prohibition  Acl a vole against the principle of  prohibition, as lo their mind, the  passage of such an Acl as was proposed would not in any way lessen  the purchase or consumption of  liquor. As a matter of fact, although  it might tend to decrease the consumption of health-giving beer  (the workingman's usual beverage)  At the close of two years of the  war and of the first month of the  British offensive/Sir Douglas Haig,  commander-in-Chief of the British  army in France, in speaking of the  situation, laid particular emphasis  on the fact that the beginning of the  third year of the war saw the initiative entirely with Ihe Allies on  all fronts, while Britain, for the  first time, was exerting something  like a power worthy of her numerous resources on land.  "The tide has turned," said he.  "Time has been with the Allies  from the first. It is only a question  of more lime lill we win a decisive  victory, which is the one sure way  to bring peace in this, as in other  wars. Until this victory is won it  ill becomes a British soldier in  France to think of peace."  Germany Knoivs Why She Fights  On Aug.lst Emperor William sent  a message to Dr. von Bethmann-  Hollweg, the imperial chancellor,  in which he said:  "Still hard times are ahead. After  the terrible storm of two years of  war,   a   desire   for   sunshine   and  peace is stirring all human hearts,  but the war continues, because the  battlecry   of    the    enemy   governments is still the destruction of Ger-:  many.     Blame   for   further  bloodshed falls only on oiir enemies. The  firm confidence has never left me  that Germany is invincible, in spite  of the superior numbers of our enemies, and every day confirms this  anew.      Germany   knows    she   is  fighting   for   her   existence.     She  knows her strength and she relies  on  God's help.    Therefore nothing  can shake ner determination or her  assurance.     We   shall   bring   this  struggle  to  such  an  end  that our  empire   will   be   protected   against  future attack and that a free field  will bc assured for the peaceful development  of  German  genius  and  labor.    We shall live  free, secure  and strong among thc nations of the  world.   This right nobody shall or  will snatch from us."  STILL SEEKING SETTLEMENT  The threatened break reported  last week over thc Irish question in  the House of.Commons, has temporarily been averted. Fl is said  now that a settlement may be arrived at earlier than expected. A  small parly of Tory junkers stand  in Ihe way. They are led by Lord  Lansdowne, whose speech in the  House of Commons last week upset  the negotiations which were almost  completed.  One writer, speaking on tbe Irish  question and England's cloudy way  of handling it, says: "If the English  used one-half the common sense in  Ireland that they have used in  South Africa tbe Irish would bc as  stout defenders of the British Empire as the Scotch. If Ireland were  given a few illustrations of comprehending clemency as outstanding as  the illustrations of unremitting severity it has seen, Ireland might become proudly and securely a state  in the British Empire."  ANOTHER NOTE COMING  A staff correspondent writes to a  Chicago paper from Washington:  "The administration looks upon the  recent British blacklist order as the  most serious problem yet presented  by the European iwar', not excepting the German submarine controversy. Admission to this effect was  made here tonight by a high official  who expressed the fear that unless  President Wilson is able to obtain  a rescinding of thc order within  the next few weeks, the spirit of  resentment may run so high in the  United Slates it will be difficult to  refrain from reprisals of a most  serious nature, or an actual breiik  in the friendly relations Avith  Great Britain."  ZEPPS AGAIN BUSY  After several .weeks of rest, thc  coast towns and cities of England  arc again being visited by Zeppelin,  but no damage is reported. During  the night of July 31st the eastern  and southeastern counties were attacked by a fleet of Zeppelins accompanied by aeroplanes.  Will She).Get Home?
