He cited one case in  the Crow's Nest Pass where a widow,  after paying her grocery bill, was  one dollar in debt, having nothing  left to pay for fuel or rent, or buy  clothing for herself or for the family. He emphasized the fact, as did  also the chairman of the board, tbat  the spirit of the act was to prevent  accidents rather than to pay compensation, and with this end in  view recommended that safety committees be organized in all indus  trialworks. All complaints of unsafe conditions in "an industrial  enterprise sent in to the office at  Victoria would be treated as strictly  confidential by the board, and an  inspector would be detailed to investigate the charges. He recommended that the widows'compensa*}  tion allowance should be increased,  and favored the- passage by the  legislative assembly at its next session of an amendment to the act.  In cases where Chinese or Hindus  are killed, a settlement should be  made with their widows���������residing  in their home countries,, where living is considerably lower than it is  in this country���������for a lumpsum of  $1000, and the.balance of windows'  allotment ($4500) be used to support the widows who live in Canada.  Mr. Gilmour asked that a resolution  be adopted by tbe workingmen of  tho city requesting our member in  the legislative assembly at Victoria  to support, such an amendment to  the act.  In compliance with Mr. Gil-  mour's request, the meeting unanimously endorsed his views, and a  committee consisting of J. A. McCallum, Geo. O'Keefe and Mr. Newman was appointed to draft a reso-|  lution along the lines suggested and  to   forward it  to J. E. W. Thomp-  j *  son, our member.  E. S H. Winn, chairman   of the  board, was the last  speaker of   the  evening.    He made a thorough  explanation of  the  act.    The   board,  he   said, had   been  accused of not  paying compensation claims prompt  ly.    In every case, he   maintained,  where undue delay had  occurred, it  had been the fault of the workman-,  the employer, or  the  physician   in  sending in their  reports  promptly.  He  laid   considerable  stress on the  desirability of doctors tilling in   the  reports   of   injuries   to workmen if  the patients were not  in   condition  to do it themselves.    He stated that  in future all claims   for eompensa  tion would be answered three   davs  after   they   bad    been   received in  Victoria.    At the conclusion of Mr.  Winn's   address,   be  invited  questions from those   present.    A mini-!  IE TOLD TRUTH  Only by Facing the Facts Can  Full Measure of Unity Be  Hadfor War Preparation  Wednesday evening a large number of workingmen and other citizen gathered in the board of trade  rooms to hear from the compensation board the detailed explanation  of   the "working   of  the act.   -The  speakers-present were Chairman E.  3. H. Winn and the-other members���������Parker Williams and H. B.  Gilmour. E. C. Henniger acted as  chairman of the meeting, and introduced the speakers..  , Parker Williams was the first  speaker. In the course of his address he drew, a contrast between  the old compensation law and the  present. Under the old law the  workmen had great difficulty in obtaining redress for injuries aeceived  in following his employment from  his employer. The employer would  contest any action that was brought  by the injured workman, and the  workman, not being in a position to  get the best legal advice, the lawsuit  as a consequence often - extended  from tiwo to four years before tbe  case was heard in the courts, and  "'in the meantime the witnesses of  the injured workman had drifted to  all parts of   the world, leaving him  in no position to get his just recom  pense for injuries   received   unless  he belonged to  some  organization,  such as a uuion, to fight his  case in  the courts, and after  the  case   was  won  aud  the    compensation   paid,  from the division of the   money   it  looked as though the lawyer instead  of'the workmau had   been   injured.  Only about 26 per cent, on aa^aver-  age, said Mr. Williams, of���������the compensation paid under   the old   law  went  to  the  injured workman, the  balance     going '���������'. to    the    lawyer.  But under the new law   these  difficulties   had    been   removed^ as the  board had full power to   deal   with  every case.    The present compensation   act,"   concluded  the   speaker,  was not an experiment.   Over thirty  states in the American   Union  and  a number of the provinces  of   Canada had similar law*, and  wherever  they   bad   been   honestly administered tbey had proved a success.  The next speaker, H. B. Gilmour,  'reviewed the act as it is, and stated  that the amount of trouble the board  has in the past to get' injured .vork-  men   to  comply   with the filling in  and sending in of the report  to  the  board for  tbeir  compensation   has  been the the chief cause of  dissatisfaction.    He   stated   that in   many  sections of   the province there  are  still many claims to be  paid   under  these conditions, and requested tbit  all men who are injured should   in  overaPas ^stroyed four of the la"������t  every instance fill in Paragraph   No  7 of the accident report.   They need j  not be afraid of   being exposed   by!

'  So ia.v, the government has followed the old policy of secrecy with  half warnings that have failed completely to rouse the people to the  necessity of unity, individual sacrifice and national action. Thi3 policy  has failed. It is time the premier  told^ the country the grave truths  that he knows, the facts about tne  menace that confronts us.  - - Tbe great mass of "Canadians do  not believe there is any possible  danger on our Atlantic or Pacific  coasts. They see no need lor conscription or any other form of readiness for the serious times ahead.  We have been criticized for writ  ing so frankly.-':',.On the other baud  we have been encouraged with ���������letters from some of the most important men in Canada. .The fact is  that the readers of The Post, having  the heaviest intereste Bt stake in the  country, are being, and will be,  more"seriously affected by mismanagement of national affairs than any  other group of Canadians. It is our  duty to them, to tell tbe nation of  the dangers and to suggest the  remedies. ,  Uncontrolled by tradition and  precedent, they do things differently in the states. We have just received a copy of a St. Louis newspaper containing an address by  Hon. Mr. MeAdoo, minister of finance in President Wilson's cabinet,  which confirms in nearly every particular what we have been saying.  St. Louis has been a very pro-German city, but Mr. MeAdoo spoke  earnestly and fearlessly on a  public  ocean warfare and is, of itself, an  additional peril to unarmed nat ons.  "We have always been an unarmed nation because we felt that  we were secure. Our love of democracy has been so great that we  die not want.to take even a chance  of militarism. ' We can no longer  delude ourselves. Do you know  what would happen if,.Germany  would be victorious, as she would  be if she could bring France' and  England to their kne.es? She would  take the entire British and French  fleets, release her own great fleet,  which has been tied up in .the Baltic during the war, and combining  these with the most destructive submarine fleet on earth���������because she  has it���������she would come here and  put the iron heel of conqueror upon  your shores. We should have to  fall back to the interior, and there  is no telling how long it would take  to expel the enemy, if we ever did.  "If we couldn't do it promptly,  do you know what would happen to  America? We. should have to make  the most humiliating terms that any  great nation ever made to get peace.  We should have to pay an indemn  ity that would represent probably  half the wealth of America, which  is $250,000,000,000, and you would  have taxation upon your shoulders  to meet that indemnity for a century to come.  "I am not trying to  alarm   you.  It is not my purpose to exaggerate.  I wouM   not misrepresent.    I  only  want to make yoiirealize, if you do  not already realize, that you are   in  the midst one of the   greatest   wars  of   all   time.    Because you are not  actually contiguous to it in a physical sense as the' nations  of   Europe  are, do not think that  you  are  not  concerned and that yuur fnture   security   and   safety are not immediately involved.    This is  something  you must realize if you would know  what to do in the present situation."  In speaking of the  financial  side  of   the  war  problem, Mr. MeAdoo  came out vigorously for prompt taxation measures:  "The worst mistake made by the  federal government at tbe outbreak  of the civil war was its failure to  impose tsxation vigorously and sufficiently. This led to a train of evilB,  hurtful to the credit of the "govern-  , ment, and resulted in unnecessary  sacrifices of human life.and treasure., The northern people were not  only willing but eager to bear large  burdens of taxation in order to  strengthen the government's credit  and to provide it with the necessary  fun-Is for the conduct of the war.  Lot us. not repeat that mistake. Let  us profit by that experience."  Making Three Trips Daily  From the Union Mine to.  Lynch Creek    ;  Yesterday Matthews & Peterson  started hauling ore with a Kepublic  motor truck from the Union mine  in Franklin camp to Lynch creek,  from which point the ore will be  transported to the Granby smelter  by the Kettle Valley railway. The  truck has a capacity of two and one-  half tons, and three trips "will be  made each twenty-four hours, three  crews being employed. The contract does not call for any specified  amount of ore to be transported,  but-for as much as tbe contractors  are uble to haul. Another truck of  the same type, with a capacity of  three and one-half tons, is expected  in the city in a few days.

From  the moment the stalwart band of Canadian  fighting men swung into  Broadway  from   the   Battery   en  route to the  city hall, until they entered tbe Tlsi  armo/y at the end of  their  march,  the}' received a continuous ovation.

FRIDAY, JULY 20,  101.7  The following comment on a vital question,  by. the Ladysmith Chronicle, follows our own  line of thought so closely that we have  decided to conserve our  own   brain  energy  by  reprinting it.'   We were, in fact, on the point  of commenting  on  the   matter  in  a similar  strain'when we picked up the Chronicle, and  had the paper arrivedaa day later we should  probably have been  accused of filching our  ideas:  'The findings of W.

The people of Canada have been economizing  in their  consumption  of meat in   order that  firms like the William Davies company might  amass enormous fortunes. It is stated that P.  Burns & Co. bought 200,000 dozen of eggs at  (i cents per dozen ,under the market price on  the date purchased, and sold them at .a profit  of 1G cents per dozen.    Of course  the  consumer suffered, and  Mr.  O'Connor remarks:  'It is not illegal, but it is not respectable.'

It has e daily capacity  of 1200 tons.  It was announced some   time ago  that  the minister  of  lands,    Hon.  The Ledge ^ays that the closing  of the copper refinery at Trail, temporarily, owining to a cessation of  blister copper shipments from  Greenwood, is probably responsible  for   the   rumor that  the   Consoli  dated,!^ ; bought  the   smelter   at  Greenwood.  The government has made a  grant of $2500 for tbe wagon road  between Christina lake and Paulson, a distance of thirteen miles.  The load is of great importance to  the Burnt Basin mines, and the  grant will make it fit for motor  traffic.  P. B. Freeland, government engineer examined tbe Argo mine at  Greenwood this week.

This year they had a fair sample of a  crop, and ail went well up to  Sun  day night, when  some evil-minded  maurader stripped one of   the   trees  of its fruit and damaged the tree by  breaking   the   branches.    We hope  the criminal attended church before  be  committed   the crime, and thus  added hypocrisy to his   other   mis  deeds,   because   we   want   satan to  get. a   firm   grip   on   him.    Seven  years     is    a -long   time   to   wait  for a tree to bear.    It means'the ex  penditure of   a  great  deal of cash  and labor.   To destroy a tree at the  end of tbat  period   could   only-'be  done by a cultus degenerate.    We  have   always    thought    that     the  garden or orchard thief is as low  a  type of criminal  as   the   man   who  breaks into a store, for which crime  anyone is justified in taking  a shot  bim.

"The   Final  Movements  of   the  European Nations"   (as delineated  in the 17th chapter of   Revelation),  x.   will be the subject at the  Adventist  Lecture Hall Sunday night.  Neat desk blotters are being sent  free to applicants by the British  Columbia Nurseries Co., Ltd., 1493  Seventh Ave. W., Vancouver, B. C,  if you mention The Sun.  - A report   from   Letbridge, Alta.,  says   that   though the  mines have  been in operation for more  than  a  week, very few men  who   were   not  present   to  go   down the first day  have appeared   on  the  scene.    All  three mines at Lethbridge are run:  ning   with   about  one-third  of the  men really necessary for the desired  output. Orders for coal are pouring  in.    One mine already  has  enough  orders   on  hand to keep its present  crew of miners going   till the last of  September  without   accepting   any  new   orders.    So far  no  announce  merit has been   made  by   Commissioner   Armstrong  of  plans  to increase   the   supply  of  mine labor.  But the operators are all crying  for  men   in   the   hope  that something  will be done in time to avert a win  ter famine in the prairie  provinces.  Hospital records show that every i  time you cut a corn you invite lockjaw or blood poison, which, is needless,  says a Cincinnati authority, who tells  you that a quarter ounce of a drug  called freezone. can be obtained at little cost from the drug stars but IS  sufficient to rid one's feet of every  hard or soft corn or callus.  You simply apply a few drops of  c'reezone on a tender, aching corn and  soreness is instantly relieved. Shortly the entire corn can be lifted out,  root and all, without pain.  This drug is sticky but dries at once  and is claimed to just shrivel up any  corn without inflaming or even irrigating the surrounding tissue or skin.  If your wife wears high heels sha  will be glad to knew of this.
