J. J. Crittenden, Kentucky's

ago, ife was said, never lost a case
he pleaded before a jury.
In defense of a poor person of
feeble mind he nsed the following
allegory:
'���When God conceived the plan
of creating man he called the three
angels that waited on his throne,
Justice, Truth and Mercy, and
said, "Shall we make man?"
"Justice said, 'Make him nofe,
O God, he will trample upon thy
laws." Truth also answered,
Make him nofe, O God, he wil
pollute j our sanctuaries.' Mercy,
kneeling and looking up through
her tearsjj said, 'Make him, O God,
and I will watch ovea him in the
dark hours of his life.'
''So God made man and said,
>0 Man, thou art the child of
Mercy; go ont and live with thy
brother.' "-^-Portland, (Me.)

the    m.cUrn    commercial
ivorld, for an individual or a body
of individuals to publish  the fact
that he or they have decided feo
boycotfe another individual or body
of   individuals,   is   to   bring   reproach npon the intelligence of fehe
individual or body of individual.,
proposing  the boycott..   The boycott used to be an effective weapon
injthe hands of a certain class, bnt
it was always  a boomerang that
came back hardest on the thrower.
Today it is recognized aB a species
of conspiracy to ruin the business
of a person  or community by the
interruption   of   his   business   or
other relations   with   others.     A
boycotfe, even when unaccompanied
by violence  or  intimidation   has
been     pronounced     unlawful   in
many courts.   The leasfe one can
say of it, is thafe it reflects upon
the good sense and generoBifey of
fehe person  or persons engaged in
it.    In  adopting the boycott,  an
individual or body  of individuals
disclose the fear they hold of fehe
person they propose  to   boycott.
It is an acknowledgement on their
part   that they are incapable   of
meeting the argument or the competition of the one they combine
against.     In   other   words,   they
pool   their weakness in order to
combat another's strength.    And
in so doing the boycofeter is more
injured  than  the one   boycotted.
Thpy forgefc thafe no individual in a
community can be injured without
fehe injury being felt by every other
person in the community."
The above from   the   Enderby
Press is true gospel.     We have
often noticed,  that the boycotter '
gets hit with his own weapon.
To the Electors of Greenwood Riding
The rumor that if elected (E am
going to) move away from Greenwood is being insidiously and industriously circulated.
This story is on a par with the
usual tactics of the Bowser machine. Unable to defend the record
of the government in public the
supporters of that party are resort*
ing to misstatements snch as the
above, with the vain hope that
such conduct will help the cause of
their candidate.
To set this rumor at rest, I hereby state publicly fehat I have no
intention of leaving Greenwood;
bufe, should I decide to do -so, I
will place my resignation as a
member, in the hands of the people.
Yours respectfully,
j. d. Maclean.

A Brave Little Lad
Stanley Reddick, aged seven, of
Philadelphia, is a good citizen.
After three huadred and ninety-six
out of four hundred persons had
refused to be "bled" to provide
immunization serum for infantile
paralysis, Stanley volunteered in
this brief letter, which he wrote
himself:
"I am seven years old and had
infantile paralysis when I was
fourteen months old. I am willing
to give my blood to help some
child." There is no need to magnify the deed by an effusion of sen-
timantality concerning it. But the
unselfish attitude of mind it discloses afe a tender age seems to
promise that the young volunteer
will grow up to be a useful and
valued member of society in his
maturity. As the twig is bent the
tree is inclined, whether toward an
anxious, zealous concern for one's
safety or a generous altruism that
does not heed the risk and the cost
when the voice of duty whispers
low.
Those who refused to give their
blood are not especially to blame.
Tbey had been solicited because
they had suffered from the disease
and the records have shown considerable reduction in the date apparently due to the use of a serum
made from the blood of those who
have recovered from the malady.
If there had been a general call for
volunteers many would have responded. It is all the more to the
credit of this boy thafe when he
might so easily have followed the
example of refusal set by others he
declined to do so and did not flinch
from any sacrifice or risk that
might mean safety for other children.���Rossland Miner.

B.C. PROHIBITION ACT
STEADILY LOSING
GROUND
Some Of The Reasons Why
The Act Is Not Meeting
With Public Favor
Wherever the B. C. Prohibition Act
has been discussed or studied, the measure has steadily lost in favor since the
latter part of May, when it was formally
passed by the Legislature without one
word from any Member of the House in
favor of the general principle or the details of the Act.
The reason for this condition of affairs
is that the Act is, on its face, of such a
counterfeit nature, and its terms so absolutely contradictory to the general meaning of the word "Prohibition" that the
public haS come to see that the Act will
not accomplish the end., sought by real
prohibitionists, and that, on the other
hand, the passing of the measure would
really be detrimental to the best interests
of the province from any standpoint.
The parties who are promoting the
fight against the passage of the Act are
following out a line of campaign which is
unique on this continent- Anti-Prohibition campaigns are generally waged on
the broad question pf the advantage or
the disadvantage of Prohibition. In
British Columbia the Anti-Prohibition
organization throws entirely to one side
all the facts and figures usually used in
Prohibition campaigns, and simply asks
the electors of the province to "Read the
Act."
Let the reader jjlance over a few of the
principle? enunciated in the Prohibition
Act and see why the passage of the measure would not be for the advantage of the
Province.
1. THE ACT DOES NOT PROHIBIT, although it is called a Prohibition Act, it provides for the expenditure
of just as much money for liquor by the
citizens of British Columbia as is now the
case, and also permits this liquor to be
consumed within the province, the order
being placed for any amount and as frequently as the person may desire, all
these being done without auy control by
the authorities. Under this clausa a man
may place a standing order for a flask of
whiskey per da}', or a barrel of beer per
week, aud have delivery of such shipments made regularly to him, just as loug
as he pays the bills.
2 THE ACT WILL SEND ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF MONEY OUT
OF TnE PROVINCE. Clause 57 provides, as noted above, for "wide open"
importation of liquor. The Prohibition
legislation of Washington and Oregon
provides for the importation of limited
amounts of liqnor, only one snch permit
for each month to be granted to any one
individual. Even with this limited importation enormous amounts of money
are now being daily scut for liquor from
these states to California. If this is the
case where limited importation only is
allowed, what would be the case in British Columbia, where the right to import
is absolutely uuliuiited, unrestricted and
uncontrolled?
3 THE ACT IS CLASS LEGISLATION. The importation clause makes it
easy for the man with money to gel
liquor, and the Act means absolutely
nothing to him. The workingman or
man of moderate means, accustomed to
buy his beer by the glass, is the man who
has not the means, to import liquor by
quantity, and the Act would indirectly
deprive him 01 something he desires to
enjoy. The Act is class legislation also,
in that it provides that a man who is a
boarder or a lodger cannot have liquor in
his possession, aud, further, that liquor
may not be kept in a house where there
are boarders; where more than three
lodgers are kept, or where the rooms
occupied are in the same building as the
store or business premises. Provisions
such as the above strike at the working-
man or the man of moderate means and
are class legislation. pure and simple.
4. THE ACT IS UN-BRITISH It
provides that a constable may, at any
hour of day or night, forcibly enter the
private home of any citizen ou the mere
suspicion that he has liquor in his possession. Having entered, the constable
may break into any room of the house,
pry open any chest, etc., iu his search for
liquor. Auother clause ot the Act permits ''sneak" informers to state to a con
stable their suspicion that a man has
liquor in his possession. The constable
lays an information in his own name,
and the name of the informer will never
be disclosed. Again, should liquor be
found in a man's possession, he is deemed
guitly of violating the Act until he has
proved that he came into the possession
of the liquor legally, All these phases of
the Act are distinctly opposed to British
traditions and customs,
5. THE PASSAGE OF THE ACT
WILL CAUSE GREAT UNEMPLOY-
MENT. The licensed liquor industry of
British Columbia directly employs nearly
four thousand men, upon whom are depending for support over six thousand
persons. All these will be thrown out of
work should the Act pass. The Act also
indirectly means a decrease of business
in very many allied trades, which now
derive a part of their piosperity because
of the business coming from licensed
premises.
6. THE ACT INSURES TAXATION.
At present every city, municipality and,
in the unorganized districts, provincial
authorities, derive a revenue for the
licensing of the liquor trade. If the Prohibition Act passes, this source of revenue
will be eatirely eliminated, and the decrease must be made up by ganeral taxes,
which means an increase in the tax rate.
The above brief outline, covering a few
clauses oi the Act, should canse every
reader to read this Act,thoroughly before
September 14th, in order that they may
understand the real provisions which it
contains. .
This referendum question is not one
which should be voted upon because the
mere say-so of this, that, or the other
person, no matter what they may be, or
what their position. Let the elector
"READ THE ACT" and "VOTE NO."
MINING AND THE ELECTION
In no district will the electors Bhow greater wisdom by returning the
Conservative candidate than in this constitupney, which is so vitally
interested in the mining industry. Thoroughly business-like in every
particular, the policy of the present government in regard to mining
has been beneficial to a degree which few have stopped to realize. Tbe
work of the mines department in the past eight or teu years has resulted in making the practice of all the mining recorders the same, thus
avoiding confusion, and litigation over questions of title.
ROADS AND TRAILS UNEQUALLED
The province's splendid system of railways, roads and trails, the construction of which has ever been a chief concern of the Conservative
administration, has mad6 it possible to ship and handle ores in a manner that no other so sparely settled province or state in America has
ever dreamed of.
NEW MINISTER THE MINERS FRIEND
The mining laws of British Columbia are known as among the most
enlightened in the world. The ppopU. of this district are too familiar
with their benefits for any explanation of them to be necessary here.
For years the department was administered by the late Premier himself, whoso genius needs no commendation at thiB late day. As his
successor in the mines department Premier Bowser, in selecting the
Hon. Lome Campbell, chose a practical mining man in every sense of
the word and one who has already shown by his energetic and well
directed activities that the chief industry of British Columbia.is to be
cared for by another competent minister.
Some of the new legislation which has been adopted by the government since Mr. Campbell has been in office is sufficient argument in
favor of returning to power a government industry aud the men engaged in it.
PROSPECTOR GETS A CHANCE
The prospector is the back-bone of the mining industry and it was in
his favor that two important measures w>re passed at the last session
of the house. By an amendment to the taxation act a lang standing
handicap in the way of the prospector was removed. Under the old
law Crown granted land which had reverted to the Crown for unpaid
taxes was not available for location under the Mineral Act. Prospectors desiring to work it simply had to take the risk of being outbid by
some capitalist at the tax sale. The new amendment enables him to
obtain a lease for one year on such lauds with the option of a second
year at 825 a year. His lease gives him the privilege of purchasing at
any time before its expiry by simply paying the arrears of taxes, and
other costs and charges. The unfair competition of the capitalist who
pounces on and seizes the promising claim prospected an such land is
now abolished, and the prospector obtains the benefit of his labor.
BENEF1TS;FELT ALREADY
The appropriation of $200,000 for the construction of roads and
trails to assist in the development of new mines a id the shipment of
ore is having good results, The policy of the department in administering the act is characteristically business-like. Upon a miner mak-
application for aid for his trail a competent mining engineer investigates the merit of his property and if the expenditure of the money is
justified in the public interest the matter is turned out by the staff of
tbe Public Works Department.
Locally, under the act, the government bas already extended help in
preliminary, work on the "Barbara" claim at Greenwood, the "Big
Copper" ciaim in Copper camp, and the "Bell" claim on Wallace
Mountain, where the road to the "Sally" is being extended to enable
the "Bell'' peopleto make quick shipments of the high grade ore re
cently struck there.
All these roads will be further improved as _the conditions and circumstances demand. The motto of the Mines Department ia "Help
The Prospector," and the motto of the local member is "Help Eim
Promptly."
PROTECTION FOR WORKERS
In drafting and adopting the most advanced Workmen's Compensation Act in the world the government has shown itself in sympathy
with progressive ideas and has given the mine workers a priceless boon,
while placing the accident risk of companies on a positive basis.
While the Conservative government has been doing these and other
things with the idea of bettering business and developing our natural
resources, the Liberal party has been busy vilifying our public men and
our public credit cash at home and abroad, and trying to obstruct every
effort made in the direction of progress.
This policy of obstruction  culminated  when Mr. Brewster by his
famous writ made his last and infamous stand to block  the country's
progress by making the laws referred to and  others of the last session
of the Legislature invalid, and to stop the disbursement of appropria
tions for the public service, public schools, roads and trails.
Tbis is the measure of the man who wants to be Premier of British
Columbia.
