But this is\ brush thc question aside in a whiff of tobacco  not the point.   Thc point wc wish to make at thisismoke.   The question of woman suffrage is new  'to them.

They do not know lhal  in Great Britain women can vote for all ollicers  llie Oldland from which lhcy came.  a powerful lot of it these days.   .lust for a change'except members of parliament, and now Premier  we'd like lo see or hear a man holding ollice or,Asquith has given notice lhal even lhis restriction  seeking lo hold ollic in lhis pari of Canada who  could go before an audience and lell Ihem hc ha<*  is lo he removed.   They do nol know lhal in Australia, New Zealand, lhc Isle of Man and Finland  the honor lo be a Canadian born and bred.    Hi women enjoy equal suffrage wilh men.   They do  would bc quite a novelty. Be it understood lhal  wc have nothing against the Scotchman or lhe  Englishman, or the irishman, or lhe native of any  oilier land. We love them all, here in Canada.  Not because of the stock Ihey came from, however, bul because of what they are ancl can do���������������������������  if they can do anything out of thc ordinary.

And when we look upon lhc awful carnage now  in progress there', wc lhank lhc good Lord lhal we  arc a little bit less advanced in Canada.

Canada is facing a problem more serious than
that of  war continuing.    It is the problem of
peace.   While thc war continues there will bc an
unlimited  market for all .Canada can produce,
in agriculture and manufacturing of war munitions, with high prices and quick sale.   But thc
end of thc war must come.   Perhaps wc cannot
share in thc over-optimistic belief that the end is
in sight, but it must come.   And whether it comes
this year or next, or three years hence, it will
surely find Canada unprepared for peace, just as
wc were unprepared for war, if there is not some
radical change in policy.    In  times of war we
should prepare for peace.   So many of us appear
to believe that the "big push" in France is on, and
that thc enemy will soon bc on thc run.   And they
feel that the "big push" will settle all; that thc
Germans will be pushed back to Berlin, and woefully beaten.   We believe this is a fatal mistake.
We believe thc offensive instituted by the Allies
on the Western front early in July proved conclusively lhat thc "big push" consists in digging
the enemy out of France inch by inch, foot by
foot.    If, after all these months of preparation,
thc British and French were able to gain in lhcir

lhc months, il" not ycars, it will take to bring
about anything approaching a decision by  thc
armies in the field.
Recently an order-in-council was passed by thc
Dominion Government appointing a special committee "to inquire into what is being done and
whal could be done to best promote the agricullural, industrial and trade interests of the country both duringTincl aflcTtlit; wai\" PcTiisihg the
order-in-council, one can get a fair grasp of tlie
important questions which arc lo be laken up by
llie special com mi I lee, such as thc whole field of
agricullurc, colonization, immigration, labor, employment of returning soldiers at thc end ol" Ihe
war. improvement of highways, branch railway
development, the attraction of capital in the
country, and the extension of trade relations. It
can hardly be expected that lhe commission will
be able lo solve these questions without the earnest help and co-operation of the public al large
and especially of all organized bodies in liic
counlry, and a convention is being called to be
held at a dale yet to be set, lo be attended by thc
businessmen of the Dominion, to consider thc
problems of re-adjustment. This re-adjustment
must bc most radical, and will be found necessary in the improvement of agriculture, and in
lhe fostering of homogenous industry within thc
Dominion and lhc expansion of trade.
The development of these industries will depend largely upon our means of attracting a
proper class of immigrants and as numerous as
possible. With lhc coming of peace great avenues of trade will be opened within the Empire
and with lhe Allies and neutral countries. And,
even if the war is to continue for Iwo or three
years longer, these avenues of trade will still be
open to Canada. We are able lo supply only a
small portion of the trade even now open to us.
Tn the Agricullural Journal for August a valuable suggestion is thrown out in thc matter of
thc settlement of the Provincial agricullural
lands. "How can farming be popularized," the
writer asks, "and how can we show the inexperienced man that he can make a comfortable living
out of. farming? The man from the city who,
from necessity or inclination, decides to follow
the profession of farming must have an opportunity of getting some good sound knowledge of
farming before hc starts. This opportunity will
bc provided by our Provincial University, by
means of short couises in agriculture, which will
be started in the very near future. A year's agricultural course will give the ordinary man a good
fair knowledge of the theory and prictice of agriculture. Afterwards, when he is on the farm, the
best expert agriculturists must bc available to
further assist him.
"Now how can we get over thc difficulty as to
thc isolation of a farmer's life? It is the writer's
opinion that wc have been settling our Province
along wrong lines. By our pre-emption system
thc individual settles wherever his fancy takes
him, and in many cases, through his not having
thc right knowledge of soil conditions, he takes
up land that is not suitable���������or a case of the
wrong man on thc wrong piece of land.
"Co-operative settlement' on selected areas
seems lo bc the obvious solution of this difficulty.
If the land-seeker is directed, on arrival in the
Province, to a co-operative settlement, and given
an area of land in this settlement sufficient for
thc type of farming for which thc district is best
suited, it surely is better than to allow him to
wander about a I random and in the end probably
make a bad selection. A co-operative settlement
means better and more pleasant social conditions���������co-operation in work, co-operation in buying, and co-operation in marketing.
"A good capable resident instructor should be
appointed on each settlement, who, by advice and
demonstration, would help the settlers to get the
best returns from.thc land, and who would also
foster and encourage thc co-operative spirit of
thc community. If, in addition, long-term loans
arc available at a reasonable rate of interest for
thc erection of buildings, acquiring of stock, and
general improvements on the ranch, there is
every reason to expect that co-operative land
settlements of this nature would bc successful.
Wc must get thc right people on the land, but it
must bc done in thc right way. Agriculture is.the
basic industry and thc foundation of prosperity
of any country."
These suggestions by Deputy Minister Scott, of
the Provincial Department of Agriculture, are almost certain to bring action along thc lines suggested. It would seem to be the only solution of
thc settlement problem of thc Province. Thc cooperative settlement plan, in addition to doing all
that is claimed for it by Mr. Scott, would also
overcome the most serious side of the bachelor
homesteader's life. Thc policy of thc past of permitting settlers to go anywhere and everywhere
to settle, has thrown many a man miles and miles
away from neighbors, has forced upon him a
solitude that has proved to bc more than hc could
live under and.kccp. his sanity.and-his ambition,
with tlie result that hundreds of homesteads are

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  THE RIGHT KIND OF LOVE  Edward Goldbeck, in the Chicago Tribune, tells  this story: "Faulkner loved Winifred and he was  right in doing so. She.really was a remarkable  girl. She had been a teacher and thc whole  family, her mother and three young brothers,  had been living on her carnings"aftcr thc father's  premature death. Faulkner looked, up to her;  lie confessed to himself tliat shewas his superior  in everything. He thought himself a commonplace man, his only merit was that hc had made  quite a lillle money, so hevvas able to provide for  Winifred's family. They had been married for  a fortnight and were sitting now in their, nice  suburban home.   Dinner was just over.  "How would you like to go tq thc theatre?"  Faulkner asked. His young wife must not sit  alone with him all evening; the conversation of a  plain businessman was not up to her level.  ''All. right,-darling." -    "Well, what shall we sec?"  "How  about   'The   Follies'?"  Winifred  suggested.   "I have heard so much about it."  So had Faulkner and'hc.would.have,liked immensely ,to sec it, but he supposed jlliat Winifred  suggested it only to please hiin. "The Follies"  was hardly the right thing for*, her. , But how  wonderfully considerate she was! He must not let  her beat him in generosity. : ' *  "I just remember that they have a revival of  'Macbeth' at Wallack's.    Let us go there," hc  said.   "I am afraid you would not enjoy 'Madame  , Sherry' at all, darling."  And off they went to "Macbeth." Winifred was  rather monosyllabical in the car, but she never  talked very much. Faulkner found thc tragedy a  lillle trying; he had worked in his oflice all day  and was not much interested in crafty queens  and hideous murders. He stiffled a yawn and  asked Winifred how she liked it. She said that  she.cnjoyed'it immensely. '    V'**  during the last intermission he inquired where  she wanted to have supper .after thc theatre. She  looked at the'advertisements in,thc.program and  named' a rather gay placed where there; was a sort  of cabaret. Faulkner started. . He would have  given.$1,000 to go there after this high-flown,  dreary stuff,.but he-knew that, thb songs at those  places were sometimes risque, and he was fright-  - cned on account of Winifred. Of course jibe said  that only to please him, but he sorely* would not  victimize her to, his own coarser^ tastes. -So hc  : smiled and thanked her for.her thought, illness,  as heknevy that she could noLcarc,for .this sort  of thing, and they had a quiet supper at the Astor.  It was even a little too quiet, a little formal. They  were both-very attentive ito ��������������������������� each Qthcr ancl tried  to oe very nice,1 but they tried just a*,'tiny wee^bit  "too hard.. In the car on .the.rwayvhome they gave  up talking and,Faiilkricr was perfectly fagged%  When they came home Faulkner went to his  desk and wrote a check. He" handed it to-Winifred, and said awkwardly: "Here is something for  your charity expenses."  . She looked "tit him with wide opened eyes.  "Thank yoiiI'evcrl so much, but am I not allowed  to use-it for myself?" ' V' - \ ', ��������������������������� .; ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ,   -  "Why, certainly," Faulkner said. "Only you  arc so unselfish and that's why  and will such as civilization has never revealed  before. We must match the organization, thc  cooly developed forethought, the minutely  planned co-ordinalion of our rivals' effort, with  at least equal resources. We can no longer drift  in thc happy optimism of inconsiderate youth.  Wc must plan as farsecing men and work with a  will."  NOT TO BE CHEERED FOR  The Montreal Gazette remarks that lhc British  blacklist of American firms alleged to bc trading  wilh enemies of lhc Allies is not a thing that can  bc cheered for.   Thc Gazette is right.   The blacklist is, to our mind, policy of a particularly poor  sort and a measure that nullifies much that has  been put forward   in   support , of thc British  blockade. * Thc situation would become particularly complicated for thc United States if Germany* were to blacklist firms, dealing with the  Allies and if she were in a position to enforce  such a measure.   Yet,we have always asserted  that lhc United States was not favoring our cause  by selling us siipplics���������������������������that she was at liberty to  sell the same supplies to Germany if Germany  would take the risk of delivery.   That has been  the strongest argument of friends of thc Allies in  the United States and a. complete reply to those  German-Americans who alleged that the American people were nol neutral in the sense lhat neutrality is understood "between belligerent nations.  Now wc demonstrate that;this'argument is not  sound by blacklisting firms suspected of selling  to enemy nations.   Wc, as a matter" of fact, interfere in American business and attempt to dictate  to American firms regarding their customers.   It  is, we think, an\ unwise step, particularly as thc  amount of business done by American firms with  German houses must in thc circumstances be of  little or no importance.   If it is of considerable  volume then bur blacklist is an admission, of the  failure of our blockade.   Moreover, the blacklist  will likely be used to thc advantage of Germany  after the war.   The Teutons need.not worry to  any'very great extent over thc entente understanding to boycott German trade if they can be  assured of thc vast markets of the United States  and through that country of the markets of South  America.   Viewed from all angles; thc blacklist  looks, like poor., business,, and .poor, business is a  grave mistake under* existing- circumstances.--  Ottawa Citizen. '������������������������������������������������������'-.,.  SAVE  YOUR  MONEY  FOR THE  CANADA'S IMPORTANT POSITION  He could not continue, for Winifred burst into  a torrentof, tears " ,"'���������������������������"   ���������������������������'..' :  "Darling, what is the matter?" he cried.  "0,". she- sobbed, 'T'have studied 'Macbeth'  with my pupils year'after year and I never have  beeri ih a cabaret, and I have been respectable and  decent and unselfish all my life, and I am sotired  of it all, and-,���������������������������"  "Dearie," _hc tried to com fort _hcr, "what shall  T^lo?^Tcirmc!^Yotrkii6"w rioWyou!"���������������������������"  "You love me, yes!" she wailed. "But I cannot  live up to a standard like yours. You idealize mc.  Is that the right kind of love?"  AFTER THE WAR  Bearing upon thc importance of the commission recently named, by the Dominion Government to inquire into what can be done lo-bcllcr  prepare lhis counlry to face the trade war which  is to follow lhe war in arms, thc Chicago Tribune  says of the similar movement in lhe Stales: "If  there is one thought that is in the minds of all  Americans at this lime, sometimes in-lhc background as a shadow of grave warning, sometimes  pressing forward for anxious consideration, it is:  'What of our future after thc war?' Thc strcnglh  of lhc demand for naval and military defense is  a part of this. But we are coming to understand  that a much wider and deeper preparedness than  that .against-military offense is to be required of  us. When the arhiies of the world lay down their  arms.the war will not be over. The unending  warfare of peace will go on, and with more formidable weapons and rhora far reaching strategies than ever before. The Paris economic conference of the Entente Allies was riot needed to  remind us that wc are to confront a; more drastic  and inclusive system of alliance and international  cooperation than we have had to meet in the  past. \Ve need only glance at the tremendous  mobilization of British resources, the astonishing  energizing and radical reorganization of its industrial and financial powers, the miraculous  transformation of that nation of laissez faire and  traditional conservatism, to waken to a profound  sense of the struggle before us. . . . Now we are  to meet a world in arms. Not the arms of the  soldier, but the arms "of the commercial conqueror, founded on an organized might of brain  It is a matter of just pride to Canadians that so  "much has been done and done .soy well, =and that;  although thc Borden Government's-great naval  program could not be carried, out, Canada has  "been" able to lead the overseas Dominions in the  land battles: _ The (first offer of aid from overseas  was sent by: Sir 'Rogert Borden to thc British  Government three days before the formal declaration of war.   In what seemed in other lands  a miracle of speed, the first Canadian division,  fully trained and equipped, was on the sea.. The  war was still but a few weeks old when the people  of the old British seaport of Plymouth awoke onc  morning to sec the Sound full of great grey ships  laden with cheering troops, the vanguard of an  armeda that stretched away to thc horizon.   Such  was Canada's answer lo thc predictions of German diplomats.   Since that day the whole energy  of thc Borden Government has been given to the  business of war.    Every national resource has  been thrown into the scale.   Nothing that men,  working day and night for weeks at a time, could  do, has been  left undone.    Something of  thc  magriitmle~of~wlialVhas been accomplished may  bc "gathered from  lhc fact  that  thc Canadian  troops now in training, on garrison duly or at  thc front, is more lhan Ihrcc times as greal as the  full land army which Great Britain at thc outset  of the war undertook to place in the field.   Included in this total are corps of experienced railway builders and forestry corps whose work is of  thc highest importance to the Allies.  Dominion War Loan  (  TO BE ISSUED IN SEPTEMBER.

Prohibilion  Acl has been discussed or studied,  lhe measure has steadily lost in  favor since the latter part of .May,  when il was formally passed by the  Legislature without one word from  any member of Ihe Mouse in favor  of'the general principle or the details of the Act.  The reason for this condition of  a Hairs is lhal the Act is, on ils face,  of such a counterfeit nature, and ils  terms so absolutely contradictory  lo lhe general meaning of Ihe word  "prohibilion," that the public has  come lo sec lhal the Act will nol accomplish the ends sought .for by  real Prohibitionists, and lhal, on  the other hand, lhe passage of the  measure would really be detrimental to thc best interests of the Province from any standpoint.  Thc parties who are promoting  the fight against thc passage of lhc  Act are following oul a line of campaign which i.s unique on this continent. Anti-Prohibition campaigns  are generally waged on the broad  'question of the. advantage or the  disadvantage of Prohibition. In  Brilish Columbia the anti-Prohibition organization throws entirely to  one side all lhc facts.and figures  usually used in prohibition campaigns, and simply asks lhc electors'  of the Province lo "read lhc Acl."  Let the reader glance over a few  of lhc principles enunciated in the  Prohibilion Act and sec why the  passage of the measure would not  bc for lhe advantage of lhc Province.  1. The   Acl   Does   Not   Prohibit,  although  il is called a  Prohibilion  Act, if provides for thc expenditure  of just as much  money  for liquor  by the citizens of Brilish Columbia  as i.s now the case, and also permits  lhis liquor lo be consumed wiihin  llie Province.    Clause 57 is a "wide  open"  section,   as   it   permits   any  citizen  to  import liquor from  any  point   outside    thc    Province,   lhc  orders being placed for any amount  ���������������������������and as frequently as the person may  desire, all lhis being done without  any    control    by    lhe    authorities.  Under this clause a man may place  a   standing   order   for   a   Mask   of  whiskey   per   day,   or   a   barrel   of  beer per  week,  and  have  delivery  of such  shipments  made  regularly  to him, jusl as long as hc pays the  bills.  *.-7=-Thr~7\-cl~-WilHicnd*-Eiwr-maus-  for liquor. Another clause of the  Act permits "sneak" informers lo  stale to a constable their suspicion  lhal a man has liquor in his possession. The constable lays an information in his own name, and the  name of Ihe informer will never be  disclosed. Again, should liquor be  found in a man's possession, lie is  deemed guilty of violating Ihe Acl  until he has proved thai he came  inlo the possession of the liquor  legally. All Ihesc phases of the Act  are distinctly opposed to British  traditions and customs.  o. The Passage of lhe Act will  Cause Great Unemployment. Thc  licensed liquor industry in British  Columbia directly employs nearly  four thousand 0mcn,' upon whom  there are depending for .support  over six thousand persons. All these  will be thrown out. of work should  thc Act pass. The Acl also indirectly means a decrease of business in  very many allied trades, which now  derive a"part*' of their prosperity  because of the business coming  from licensed premises.  (5. The Act Increuses Taxation. At  present every city, municipality  and, in the unorganized districts,  provincial authorities, derive a revenue for the licensing of thc liquor  trade. If the Prohibition Act passes,  lhis source of revenue will be entirely eliminated, and the decrease  must be made up by general taxes,  which'means an increase in the tax  rate.  'ihe above brief outline, covering  a few clauses of lhe Acl, should  cause every reader lo read this Acl  thoroughly before September 14lh,  in order that he may understand  lhe real provisions which it-contains.  This referendum question is not  onc which should be voted upon because of lhc mere say-so of this,thal  or ihe other person, no matter who  thev mav he, or what their position.  Let the "elector "HEAD THE ACT"  and "VOTE NO!"  ROUMANIA DECLARES WAR  WHAT  A  SASKATCHEWAN  ALDERMAN SAYS ABOUT  PROHIBITION IN THAT  PROVINCE  Read this Signed Statement of  Ald.Knowles, of Turtleford,  Saskatchewan, Giving in  Detail the'Real Facts  of   the    Case  Amounts of Money Oul of the Province. Clause 57 provides, as noted  above, for "wide open" importation  of liquor. Tlie prohibition legislation of Washington and Oregon provides for the importation of limited  amounts of liquor, only one such  permit for each monlh lo he  granted lo any one individual. Even  with lhis limited importation enormous amounts of money arc now  being :dnil>���������������������������scntV'or liciuoi- I'roni  these stales to California. If lhis i.s  the case where limited importation  only is allowed, what would he lhe  case in Brilish Columbia, where  lhe right to import is absolutely  unlimited, unrestricted and uncontrolled?  '.]. Thc Acl is Class Legislation.  The importation clause makes it  easy for Ihe man with monev lo  gel'liquor, and Ihe Acl means absolutely nothing to him. The workingman or man of moderate means,  accustomed to buy his beer by Ihe  glass, is the man who has nol the  means to import liquor in quantity,  and Ihe Acl would indi -cclly deprive him of something he desires  lo enjoy. The Acl is class legislation also in lhal it provides lhat a  man who i.s a border or a lodger  cannol have liquor in his possession, and, further, that liquor may  not be kepi in a house where there  are boarders, where more than  lhree boarders are kept, or where  Ihe rooms occupied are in the same  building as a store or business  premises. Provisions such as lhc  above strike at the workingman or  the man of moderate means and are  class legislation, pure and simple.  ���������������������������I. 77ic Acl is Un-Brilish. II provides that a constable may, al any  hours of Ihe day or night, forcibly  enter the private home of any citizen on Ihe mere suspicion that he  lias liquor in his possession. Having  culered. Ihe constable may break  inlo any room of the house, pry  open any chest, etc., in his search  This sla lenient is republished  from lhc 'Chilliwack Progress of  Aug. 24Ih:  "Mr. Geo. B." Knowles, jeweler of  Turtleford, Sask., has been visiting  Chilliwack, with a view to locating  here.   While discussing prohibilion  Mr.' Knowles,  who  is an alderman  in his own lown and therefore in a  position lo speak with authority on,  the   subject,   states   thai   since   the  bars were closed by Premier Scolt,  drunkenness has increased' 25  per  cent.    The Government dispensary  for his disti'icl is Norlh Batlleford,  about 00 miles south of Turtleford,  and   one   day   when   Mr.   Knowles  happened  lo be  al  the station, he  counted    37    parcels   of   whiskey  coming inlo lhat town, which has a  population oi' only 210.  "Before the bars were closed a  man could go into a bar and get  one glass of whiskey, now the least  he can buy is one quart. And where  one glass of whiskey had no effect  on a man, one quart will make him  -i n t oxi ca Led .=J n=Saska .ldi._w_ia_ojia=  ran buy one gallon of whiskey and  either four gallons of beer or four  gallons of wine ''per day, which  causes more drunkenness than ever  before. The Norlh Rallleford dis-  I ensary is as large as a departmental store., and is kepi busy all  day. Christmas eve the manager  Hosed lhe dispensary promptly on  I'mc, thereby turning away al least  one hundred people, who were  ii  Ih  Ihorilies. thc manager lost his position, and a new manager installed,  who was not so strict.  Norlh Batlleford business men  are all complaining that business  has fallen off 25 per cenl since the  bars (loscd.  "In passing through Edmonton,  wlicie one can gel no whiskey, and  where there are large lumber and  coal concerns, business men told  me thai Ihe workingman gets a big  Make and Ihen leaves lhc Province  !' .r a pli.ee where he can have a  heller time for his money, thereby  lai-'ing a good sum of money out of  the Province.  "I'oimerly a man in Saskatchewan bought'a glass of whiskey, and  Ihen went about his business, loday  he can buy nothing less than a  quart," which leads to greater indulgence.'  "Mr. Knowles states that prohibition is not a success, and although ;���������������������������:  I lohibitionisl himself, he has no  desire lo come lo a Province lhal is  dry, fur he has already had all that  lie wants of thai slate of alfairs.  "The sale of liquor brings no  levenue into the cily. The license  from hotel keepers and wholesale  men helped the upkeep of Ihe city,  hul under thc new regulations in  Saskatchewan, there is more  drunkenness than ever, and no  money coining inlo the city treasury to help keep order, etc., as  there was in the days of licenses.  "Signed, Gi:o. 13. Knowi.i*s*  Swift and sudden have been the  changes in the war .situation this  week. Sunday morning llaly declared war on Germany; Sunday  evening Roumania declared w'ar on  Austria, and on Monday Germany  declared war on Roumania. Turkey  il i.s expected will follow Germany's  example, and Bulgaria should do  likewise, though Bulgaria's position  is regarded as hopeless and il is believed she is more likely to sue for  separalcpeace than lo declare war  on Roumania. Indeed, Petrograd  reports say messages intended to  pave lhe way for an understanding  wilh Ihe Allies have already been  despatched from Sofia.  The entry of Roumania into thc  war on the side of,!hc Allies makes  the fourteenth*..nalion now engaged  in the greatest struggle in lhe history of thc-world. In Roumania, it  is estimated, there are 500,000 fighting men available. Russia will now  be able *��������������������������� to strike al thc Teutonic  powers through Roumania. it is  known that thc Russians have been  concentrating on the Roumanian  frontier for months, and it is believed they will quickly cross now  and attempt a drive either through  Serbia or Bulgaria, and thus seek  to cut oil' all communication between Turkey and thc. Central  Powers. 0  It is reported that Greece may  have "to' follow Roumania's example  and declare war on somebody, in  which case il will be upon her old  enemy, Bulgaria.
