When the court opened  the next morning the matron found  the husband wailing outside, and she  advised him to secure a lawyer for his  wife.  "I eunna due that." he replied. "I  carina afford it."  ���������"Your wife told me you had over  two hundred dollars in'tlie bank."  "On, ay, I ken that, but that was  saved up for an einairgcncy."  A meeting of returned soldiers  was held in the G W.V A rooms on  Thursday night for the purpose of  organizing the returned men in support of Col. C. E. Edgett, in the'by  election for "Yale riding, which takes  on November 22.  There was a good aUenda/'ce and  considerable enthusiasm developed  during the meeling. The chairman,  Clinton Atwood, and Ii. Campbell  addressed the meeting, pointing out  tbe duty and also the necessity of  all returned men taking an active  interest in the affairs of the country.  A committee was appointed to interview the United Farmers with  the object of getting together and  working in harmony in tbe coming  campaign with the view of giving  their united support to the Farmer-  Soldier candidate.  At the district convention held in  Penticton  on   the   11th   intt.,   the j  Liberal party decided   to  throw   in  their   united   sUf-rrgth   behind   the,  independent candidate, and in view!  of this the committee   was   also   instructed to make   working   arrange  On Monday next the three prairie  provinces and Nova Scotia will   vote  on   the   question ..of   interprovincial  trade and the importation of liquor.  These   provinces   have   all adopted  prohibitorj- laws so far as they have  power aud are about two vote under  the Dominion statute on   the   question of tbe exclusion of   liquor from  outside.  The Ontario vote on importation from outside tbe province has  been postponed   until  next spring.  There   is   a   practical ' certainty of  three different   liquor systems and a  possibility   of   f< ur   uithin the Dominion next  year.    Quebec:   retains  tbe license system    niih municipal  option, which   impises   prohihiu'on  on    laige   areas.    British Columbia  will authorize   government   control  and sale with the prohibition of pri  vate trading.    The  other   provinces  will have prohibition of   the   liquor  trade within the province and   probably some or all of them  the  statu  tory   condition,   described   in   tbe  United States as bone dry.  Hon. VV. L. Mackenzie, the opposition lender in   the   federal   house,  in addressing an audience   at Kamloops composed largely  of   0   P. K.  employees, dealt with  the problems  confronting   Canada, now   that   tbe  country has embarked so "deeply into  railway   control,   and on the   vital  questions of increased cost  of  com  modities which have been raised by  the recent increase iu rail way freight,  rates.    Mr. King declared  that  the  whole question of   effective   control  of (be operation of charges   by railways was part of the wider and mus!  vital   question   of  the* present tn'tib  costs ot the necessities of life.  As to the tariff issue, Mr. Kii>'t;  asserted that the Liberal pd.-iiion  was clearly defined iu the platl'oini  of the party laid down at the August convention of last year. "It l!-,"  be said, ' a policy of downward revision of the tariff in the inteie^t m  producers and consumers. Ii ilocs  not aim at free trade, but it does  aim at freer trade, especially in  those commodities which comprist-  the necessaries of life, and constitute the instruments of production  in the great basic industries of th--  coudtry.  "The issue as respects   the   taiiff  is    not   between protection and fr>.--'  trade.  It is between a tariff which ir  so framed as to serve the interests "f  espeeiwlly   favored   and    privileged  groups,'as against a tariff which will -  protect    producers   and   consumers  against the unfair exactions of com  bimitions of this kind."

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1.920  Nearly everybody you meet nowadays professes to be astonished at the vote "on the prohibition referendum; and yet>, when   the vote  on   the measure is taken into consideration,  considerably less than one-half of the electors  have any   right   to   express   surprise. * The  explanation lies in the fact  that the average  voter did not know how "the  other fellow"���������  or "the other lady"���������was going to vote. It was  a big victory for the  moderationists, and if a  wise government control law  is enacted  and  honestly enforced, it may be the means of setting an example to other sections of the country which are grappling with the liquor ques  tion.

A great many .people seem to think  that'it means a government, liquor  depot in  . every city and village in the  province,  where  anybody who has the price can go and buy as  much  liquor as 'he wants, and as often as he  desires. Such a law would not be an improvement over the public bar, and would not long  be tolerated by the public.   Government control should "mean, and we have no doubt that  when the law is framed it will mean, that the  government actually controls the liquortrafric.  Each electoral district, for instance, should be  allowed one vendor in its largest city or town,  ���������with perhaps more in the  large  coast  cities.  The quantity to each person should be limited,  and people who have no control over their appetites for drink should be debarred from purchasing any.' A record should be kept of each  person's purchases, and no one should  be allowed to acquire more than   what he  or his  family might reasonably require.   The  prices  should be moderate and  the same  to  everybody. "'No   reduction ain   prica  for quantity  should be made.  Evidences multiply that the span  of life is  lengthening.

BUSINESS tJVLAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? you.in  good company? It is an old  saying that a'.rnan is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join tlie  ranks of the. biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  -world.  How many  large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the ' cbuntry? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name of a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities; and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test' of patronage.  ft 8  e naiiKs  ssfuB Adk/  *>n*^  Si Hans H  >3 THE   SUN.

Dnnlop Means "Original"  When you hear a bicycle owner say his tires are the  original, not the imitation, he means that all other wired-  on bicycle tires .took Dunlop Tires for their model,  because Dunlop was first in the field.  The PneumaticTire Industry rests on the name "Dunlop."  And next in importance to your realizing that fact  is the necessity for realizing this one: Dunlop Tires from  the first���������1894���������were made by a patented process.  We found the way to make them right���������a way that would  impart to them such road mastery, such superiority of  toughness ai.\d resiliency that they would sell fight times  faster than any other make of bicycle tires.; E.'ghty per  cent, of all bicycle tires sold in Canada are Dunlop.
