Tay  lor. ,        ' ���������  1 At the earnest request of the Cana  dian Red Cross, Mrj Herbert" Hoover,  director general of relief for Europe  on behalf of the allied nations, came  to Canada to launch'the appeal on  behalf of the British empire war re  lief fund. That fund is being raised  throughout the British empire to  combat disease and distressin Europe  The Canadian Red Cross through all  its provincial divisions will make the  appeal in week of November 20---29.  Mr. Hoover, who is recoguieed a  the best authority ia the world upon  European conditions, spoke with the  quiet conviction of one whose message was sufficient in itself. In com  mencing he said he felt some embarrassment lest his presence in Canada  might be misinterpreted as urging the  Ganadian people to further sacrifice.  lie said he realized that the sacrifice  of the Canadian people, individual by  individual, had been far in excess of  that of his own people, but he said he  knew that the charity of the Canadian  heart was inexhaustible, and he felt  there would be no resentment against  his coming to discuss with them- the  prdblom that confronts the western  hemisphere towards the east. ������������������. v  ' 'To trie,' 'Mr. "Hoover, said, "the  greatest problem of;, t^e human heart  in the world today is this problem of  a myriad of waifs and orphan hungry  children through eastern and .'centra  Europe. The slaughter of fifteen million men could not but have left  millions of helpless and hungry children in its'track, and upon'their well  being must depend the upbuilding of  Europe. There are literally millions  of children in those countries sunk so  low'in destitution' that they can not  be absorbed. They must receive ex-  trordinary assistance  "We have found by experience that  the cost of caring for a waif child is  approximately $3.00 a month; that of  the supplies that are required by ioi~  ports about $1,00 is needed,and therefore the dollar that we provide together with local support practically  preserves the life of one child. It is  not much of a sura���������SLOG per month  per child���������and although the calls may  be very considerable upon your people and upon ours, we still have somo������  thing aftar wo have cared for our  children and our noighbor's children.  "Our present problem over- the  forthcoming winter appears to be  about 3,500,000 to 4,000,000 children  We feel that if could find among all  the nations 84,000,000 per month, we  conld solve this problem Surely it is  not much for a whole world to find,  It is a heavy burden for charity, but  it is so appealing in its necessity that  I have no doubt that charity will find  it. Thesechildren are the . obligation  of every man arid woman in the west  ern hemisphere, for we have suffered  less, but beyond this they are a charge  on the heart of the entire world. If  we are to'preserve the foundations for  the future stability of Europe, if we  are to. keep opetr :the love of  humanity, our duty is clear beforo  us." .      *  V.  or laborer������|*>He pointed out  the importance of agriculture  to this district by saying that  if we had depended wholly on  the smelting industry,our city  would now be in the same position as Ph'oenix is in. As"  75'percent/of the" population  of Canada were either engaged in farming or depended  directly upon the farmers-for  a living, it was only fair that  a larger proportion of those  who made the laws of the  land should be actively engaged in that industry. He  considered the farmer as capable of making laws for his  own benefit and comfort as,  the.banker or the lawyer or  the capital is to legislate in  his interest. The speaker concluded his address by drawing  an ideal picture of rural life,  and said that the peopleVen-  gaged in the basic industry  of the country were, as a rule,,  entitled .to better < housing,  more conveniences and more  comforts of life, and these  conditions could only- be  brought about by proper legislation.  Col. Edgett prefaced his speech  by saying that this was his second  visit to our city and he felt like an  old timer here now. He answered  Premier Meighen's criticism of his  representing four parties by saying  that it was better to ride four horses  than to ride one to death.  The speaker thought it possible  for public officials to handle the  people's funds without creating  scan'dles. While overseas had handled sums running into millions for  the government, and his account  had been correct'to the last penny,  He criticized the C N,It. deals and  the government's- taxation policy,  and bitterly attacked the ad minis*  tration for iseuing the Ross rifles to  the men at the commencement of  the war. Thisinexcurable blunder,  he said, had cost'the country many  unnecessary lives. He advocated  better housing for the returned men.  Mr. Edgett answered Premier  Meighen's attack on his platform by  saying that he firmly believed that  education Bhould be a matter of  federel legislation, and that propor  tional   representation   was entirely  feasible. The government had   con  suls in   Dearly   every' port in   the  world, and it would not   be   unreasonable   to   have" immigrants   ex  amined morally, physically and  in  tellectually by them before embark  ation.    t  On the tariff question he said he  did not believe in "a high protection  wall, but a moderate tariff to prevent inferior American fruit' from  being dumped on this side of the  Hue. The speaker closed' his remarks by paying a tribute to his  opponent.  The meeting closed with the singing.of the national, after which three  hearty cheers and a tiger were given  lor Col. Edgett.

MONTPILY MEETING  OF THE I. O. D. E.  ..The monthly., business meeting of  the I O.D.E. was held in the' chapter room on Thursday, November  4, with sixteen members present.  In answer to an appeal read-at  the last month's meeting, $30 was  voted to the Navy League of Canada.  Ways and means of raising money  were discussed, and it was- decided  to hold a progressive whist drive in  the Holy Trinity Parish hall oh"  Friday, November 19. Commiftecs  were appointed to buy prizes^ so*  licit refreshments, etc.  The meeting closed by singing  the national anthem.  .

The council meeting Monday  night was very brief. The mayor  and all the aldermen were present.  A letter from Government Architect Henderson, of Victoria..advised  the council that,, permission was  granted to place the . captured German gun on the west end of the  postoffice grounds.

To tlie Electors of the Yale  Constituency  In presenting myself to you ahd asking for your support at the coming Faderal By-election on Monday,  November 22nd, I wish to emphasize the following points:  The present Government was elected for the purpose  of carrying the war to a successful conclusion, and there  is no doubt in the mind of the people that they have long  outlived their mandate. Their methods are autocratic  and dictatorial, and by no means representative of the  wishes of the country.  Standing as an Independent Candidate, endorsed by  Farmers, Veterans, Liberals, Labour and Independent  Voters, it follows that my actions cannot be subject to  the dictates of any political party. I stand* on my platform, which has appeared in the public press from time  to time.  The old political parties have failed to meet the requirements of the people, and to live up to their promises. The time has arrived in our history when the interests of Canada, as a whole, can best be served by men  of independent^thought and action, who arc unfettered  by party ties. Just legislation, regardless of its source,  will receive my earnest support.  You will be doing yourself and your country the best  possible service by electiug me to represent your interests in the Federal house. You had faith in mc while  overseas, and I trust that my record and and character display integrity sufficient to warrant you feeling that your  Empire defenders are worthy to be your Empire builders.  Relying on your loyal support and co-operation,  Yours faithfully,  C. E.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1920  -MJ., Bowser's Cranb'rook speech  did  not  win any votes for the opposit on. What is the  use of telling ari intelligent audience that the  Oliver ad ministration is squandering the public funds,  when  it is well known that the  province was in financial chaos when the Lib  efals: assumed  power and , that   today, after  piloting British Columbia through four years  of the most strenuous and critical times ever  known in the British empire, the bonds' of the  province.are selling .at a premium?. The Conservatives were in control of British Columbia  for thirteen years. Mr. Bowser was the chief  adviser of the government most of that. time.  When it was voted out of office he was prime  minister.     Those thirteen. years   were   the  most prosperous ever known  on  th's. continent..  The revenue literally flowed into, thp  public treasury.   And yet when the party relinquished office the successors found only an  empty treasury and a legacy of debts and.obligations'.    Yet on this record Mr. Bowser.asks  the electors to return  him to power,,on .the  promise that he  will do better if entrusted  with the management of the province's business.   But promises are easily broken. Actual  records t?re  now   wanted. " Comparing the  records of the two leaders who are now appealing to the electors, the Oliver government  should be returned to power by a very large  majority.  Ail borrowings  of this class are repayable  and are in the nature of investments.  With the increase of debt-has come a. corresponding increase in the amount required  semi-annually to meet interest and sinking  fund obligations. With the increased cost of  living has come a crrespondinh increase in the  cost of labor and materials���������hence, the carry  ing out of public works has become very ex  pensive, while the cost of the maintenance of  public institutions and of education hasgrown  rapidly.  Consideration of-all these and other, factors  indicates that, while the revenues are satisfactory, careful and economical administration  is imperatively necessary, and that the present  is not a time when lavish expenditures would  be justifiable. At the same time it must be  recognized that an opportunity for increasing  both population and production is opening before us, and that a policy of moderate borrowing and judicious expenditure for reproductive purposes is, under the conditions, true  economy. ���������  _        ���������  Farmers and Public Life  Jt.n.,this, rjding the Liberal candidate feels  confident of victory, and" there is no reason  why he should feel otherwise;  .The party , is  pretty well organized here, but best- of all, the  feeling of the people is that the Oliver administration  has steered   the province through  very troublous times with credit to itself, and I ^t"  that it is entitled "to a second term.-   Per  sonally Mr. Henniger has a large number of  warm friends,  and his  business integrity, is  unquestioned.   He is, a  vigorous fighter for  what he believes to be right, and could be depended upon.to look after the interests of the  district all times.   An  incident;"that should  Garry some weight in favor of,the Oliver government and himself occurred last summer, when,  as chairman  of the school board, he was instrumental in saving the city from erecting  a  new high school building.  On the third page in this issue there are  some introvertible facts why the women electors and those interested in educational work  should vote for the Liberal candidate in this  this riding on December 1. Next week, in the  same space, we will have something of interest  to say to another class of electors.  LOAN AT A PREMIUM  In his campaign manifesto Premier Oliver  states that the financial credit of the province  has been restored to the extent that the last  issue of British Columbia bonds netted a  premium of 3.351 per cent. Large additions,  he says, have been made to the provincial  debt, over $14,000,000 of which have been on  account of Pacific Great Eastern railway, a  legacy of debt and obligations inherited from  the previous adminstration. Other borrowings  have'been on account of:  Loans to farmers.  Improving agricultural lands for returned  soldiers. "���������  Aiding the municipality of South Vancouver.  Protecting irrigation work in the dry  belt.  Providing houses for returned soldiers.  Aid to returned soldiers aud others in establishing various industries.  One should rejoice in all legitimate  movements among farmers for cooperation to  improve marketing and secure the best return of  all they produce, said Sir John Willison in a  recent speech.   One can not doubt that the  chief cooperative   enterprises   of the Grain  Growers   have   been  of great  advantage-to  western Canada even if one questions the wisdom and practicability of some of their  political teaching. All that makes rural life more  attractive and farming more profitable is  of  direct.social and national advantage, for, when  all is. said, it is only by greater returns from  agriculture and  by  fuller recognition of the  social dignity of the calling that the  population upon the land will be materially increased  There have been too few farmers in the legislatures, in the house of commons,  in the senate, in honorable places upon public commissions. I cannot think that a successful banker,  orrail way builder, or manufacturer, or educationist holds a more honorable position in the  community than a successful farmer or stock  breeder. From generation to generation  the  supply of educationists, bankers, capitalists,  and even the social leaders of the cities, is renewed and maintained by recruits from the  country. It is idle to talk of classes in Canada  e the hired man of today is the great  employer of tomorrow, and when in a single  generation the obscure youth from a back  township becomes the possessor of millions or  the.chief adviser of the crown in the national  councils.    The  farms   are... the nurseries of  scholars -end statesmen, of  the   leaders; in  finance and industry,'and where that happens  the system of education is not a failure and  democracy is not an imposture.  ..

A British administrative official,  stationed in a village in the interior  of Africa, just after the outbreak of  the war received the following telegram from his bureau chief: "War  declared. Arrest all enemy aliens at  once."  Two days later the bureau chief  was handed the following reply:  "Have arrested two Frenchmen, a  Dutchman, three Germans, two  Americans, a Polander, three Rus  sians and an Italian. Please tell me  whom we are at war with."  Shrapnel  The man or woman who saves a dollar and  puts it in the bank leaves the tramp class and  becomes a capitalist.

A Thrifty Book Lover  There are singular discounts at.-  lo.wed in the book trade that on one  occasion were happily illustrated by  Mark Twaiq. One day .while the  humorist was connected with a publishing house he went to a bookcase  and, picking up a volume, asked the  price. He then suggested that, as a  publisher, he was entitled to 50 ' per  cent discount. To this the clerk assented.  "As 1 am also, the author of the  book," said Mark Twain, "it would  appear that I am again entitled to 50  per cent discount." .  i The clerk bowed. He could not  deny it.  "And as I am a personal friend of  the proprietor," Mark modestly:, continued, "I presume you will allow me  the usual 25 per cent discount? If so,  I; think I may as well take the book.  What's the taxi"  The clerk took out his pencil and  figured industriously. Then he said  with great obsequiousness, "As near  as I can calculate, we owe you the  book and about 37������ cents."

HOW YOU CAN TELL  'GENUINE ASPIRIN  Only Tablets with "Bayer Cross"  are Aspirin���������No others!  *Ottawa,"!Nov. 6.���������A:, special  dis  patch   from   Ottawa to the Toronto  Star says':  .���������.���������According to .official opinion  here the'province of British Columbia is fn a somewhat interesting  tangle w.ith regard to in recent  liquor referendum. The., result" of  that referendum, which .was purely  provincial,- and not federal in char**  acter was to substitute for the ex-  -iating prohibition act a system of  govern merit control of the sale of  intoxicating liquors. "It iB now. for  the government of the province to  introduce legislation .��������� implementing  the people's will.  "The trouble is that, under present conditions there can be no monopoly of government control in the  province. The referendum recently  taken does not prohibit the importation of liquor in the province by  individuals'for their own use. It is  not.in the p'ower. of the provincial^  government to^prohibit importation.  It'is exactly for that reason that the  federal parliament amended the  Scott act to' provide for a federal  'plebiscite, and this as were held in  the three -prarie provinces and Nova  Scotia recently.  '; "Now Premier-Oliver  wants the  provincial government   to have the  sole right of importing   liquor into  ihe-province for -medicinal,   sacra-:  mental add- other purposes.    This  monopoly, it  is   stated  here    can  not   be   granted   by   the    federal  authorities:-uhder   existing federal  legislation, and, it can safely be predicted   that   no   further legislation  along that line will be forthcoming  The only way to restrict imports is  by the same means as were.adopted  by the four   provinces above-mentioned, and if these   plebiscites carried   hot  even   the provincial government   could ��������� import saviog for  medicinal lind   sacramental   purposes,   and   government control as  approved by-the recent referendum  in   British Colum bia!wou I d be but  an empty 'phrase."
