To Stop War Frauds
The report of the War Charities
Committees just issued cites some
cruel abuses of charitable appeals,
and makes useful suggestions for
the prevention of bogus funds.
They suggest that it shall be
made illegal to appeal to the public for any war charity unless the
body making the appeal is registered nnder regulations drawn up by
the Home Oflice.  ..
How necessary is the precaution
is fehe evidence given to the committee affords abundant proof. In
some cases large sums of money
which have been collected were
found to be under the control of an
individual who had placed them to
his own banking account. In others, no accounts had been published
showing how the money has been
disposed of, and no proper records
have been kept.
A typical instance is that of a
fund promoted for the relief of victims of the war in the country of
one of our Allies. According to the
last published statement of account
a sum of over ,��120,000 had been
collected, a large portion of which
appears to have been expended for
the purpose indicated. There remained a balance of about ��42,000
with regard to the expenditure of
which no account has been published.
A French swindler convicted in
Paris for fraud started a fund in
London, and employed young
women to collect money in places
of public resort, paying them a
"''"commission of ten per cent. This
scheme having, been stopped, he
founded an association for the benefit of war orphans, and succeeded
in obtaining the names of a number
of titled persons as patrons. In

An adventurer who had drifted
into Leadville, Colorado, awoke
one morning without food or
money. He went out and Bhot a
deer, which, in its dying agonies,
kicked up dirt and disclosed signs
of gold. The p^or man staked a
claim and opened up one of most
profitable mines over worked in
"Dead Man Claim," the name
given to another rich mine in
Leadville, was discovered by a
broken-down miner while digging
a grave.
A miner died when there was
several feet oj snow on the ground.
His comrades laid his body in a
snow  bank  and  hired   a man for
$20   to  dig a  grave.    The grave-
digger, after  three  days' absence,
was found digging a  mine  instead
of a grave.    While  excavating he
had   struck  gold.    Forgetting the
corpse and his bargain, he thought
only   of   the   fact   that   he   had
"struck it rich."
An unsuccessful Australian miner went up and  down in Colorado
for several months prospecting for
gold and finding none.    One day
he   sat   down  upon a stone and
while  musing  over  his hard luck
aimlessly    struck    another   stone
with his pick.    He chipped off a
piece, and sprang to his feet.    The
chip   was  rich  gold  quartz.     He
huried into the little town of Bos-
ita and went to the assay  office,
where a teamster had just dumped
a load of wood.    He agreed to saw
the wood feo  pay  for assaying his
chipped sample.    The result of the
assay sent him  back  to his claim.
When he bad taken out of it ��450,-
000 he sold the mine  for $300,000
in cash and ��1,000,000 in stock.
But these stumblings have beon
fehe   exceptions   to  the rule  that
mines are found by painstaking, intelligent prospectors.    They spend
wearisome   months   in   exploring
mountain and gulches.    They are
mineralogists,      geologists     and,
above all, practical explorers, who
can  tell   from   a "twist"   in  the
grain of the rock or from the color
of  a  spar seam  whether   "paying
gold" can be mined in the region.

Stumbling Upon A Mine
Gold was discovered in California in 1848 and in Colorado in
1858. The discovery was accidental in both cases and the fact created
the impsession   that  mines   were
in   hope   of
" stumbling     upon     a     mine. "
��Thayer,   the    historian   of   those
days, has  given several  instances
of lucky "stumbling."
Three men while looking for gold
in California, discovered the dead
body of a man who evidentally had
been "prospecting.*' "Poor fellow," paid one of the trio, "let's
give him a decent burial." So
th��.y began to dig a grave. Three
feet below the surfabe they discovered signs of gold.   The Strang-,

town in which he was staying, began, "Pardon me, sir, but are you
a resident of this town?" "Weel,"
was the cautious reply, "I've
leeved here a matter o' fifty years."
"Ah, then, perhaps you can help
me," went on the visitor. "I'm
looking for a criminal lawyer.
Have you one in this town?" The
Scotsman dropped his voice to a
confidential whisper as he answered, "We hiv, but we hinna been
able to prove it against him yet.
He's ower sharp."
Many false statements.were made hy
Mr. W. D. Bailey, a so-called Labor Leader of Winnipeg, during his recent tour of
the Province in behalf of the People's
Prohibition Party. A denial was not
entered to these statements at the time
because it was thought desirable to nail
these falsehoods iu such a convincing
manner, as to show the workingmen of
Rritlsh Columbia in a conclusive manner,
that the campaign oratory and literature
of Mr. Bayley was not trustworthy. This
evidence is now at hand, and should be
read by every workingman of British
Columbia. It outlineB in a convincing
manner the lengths of which Prohibition
orators and writers have gone in an effort to swing the workingmen's vote of
British Columbia in favor of the Prohibition Act.
The campaign of falsehoods and misleading statements which have been carried on among the workingmen of British Columbia by the Prohibitionists can
only be excused by the fact that they
realize that the condemnation of the B.C.
Prohibition Act by such strong labor organization as the Trades and Labor Councils of Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster and Prince Rnpert outlines a
position which is difficult to attack by
fair methods.
One of Mr. Bayley's statements, made
from the platform while on the Coast,
and now framed in literature which is
being circulated by Prohibitionists, is to
the effect that he personally offered to
help the agent of the Bartender's Union
to find employment after Manitoba went
dry. He was told that the bartenders
were all fixed, and that the agent of the
Union had gone back to his job with the
Bartenders' Union. The bartenders were
the only trade that were really affected
by the Prohibition Act, and all of them
had gone to work at other trades.
A copy of this statement and the Prohibition campaign literature was sent to
F. W. McGill, Business Agent for the
Bartenders' Union at Winnipeg. Immediately upon this receipt Mr. McGill
sent a reply which brands the statements
as absolutely false. In direct denial of
Mr. Bayley's statement his letter read as
'���I am only too pleased to get at
one of those fakers who are all the
time trying to exploit the labor man
when they think they can get away
with it.   The statement of Mr. Bail-
ley that he offered to assist me in getting me a job is untrue, as is his
statement that I am workiug for the
Barbers' Union.   I have not worked
since I lost my position as Business
Agent of the Bartenders Union, June
ist.   In regards to the bartenders of
Winnipeg all getting jobs, there are
fourteen working that were working
when the Manitoba Temperance Act
came into effect June ist, the balance
of two hundred and eighty-two placed
out of employment.
With reference  to the   altitude   of
Manitoba   Prohibitionists  towards men
employed in  the liquor trade, Mr. McGill says that  during   the   Prohibition
campaign the Social Service Council laid
great stress on the handsome manner iii
which they would provide employment
for this class of labor,  should the workingmen  support    the   Prohibition   Act.
After the Prohibition Act passed, however, the members of the Council evident-
ally forget all about their promises, for
they have done absolutely nothing to assist these men in  securing work.   The
situation in reference to these men Mr.
McGill  describes as  deplorable.     Over
five hundred clerks wei-e thrown out of
work when  the  Manitoba  liquor stoves
were closed,  and with   all   these   men
looking for employment,  the position of
the bartender was such as placed him at
a decided disadvantage
With reference to Mr. Bailey's statement that he was a Labor Candidate for
the Manitoba Legislature, Mr. McGill
says that he was the only person that
recognized himself as a Labor Candidate.
There were three Trade Unionists on his
committee, but when he placed Prohibition in his platform they told him they
could not serve. As a result he slipped
the Prohibition plank of his platform,
and never mentioned the subject during
his campaign.
Mr. McGill's letter contains other criticisms of Mr. Bailey's statemenis as made
on the Coast, these being of the same
character as the above denial. In view
of the above direct statement, it would be
well for the workingmen of British Columbia to weight Mr, Bayley's campaign
oratory and literature in behalf of the
B. C. Prohibition Act at its true value.���

The Streak of Yellow
With a pocket full of money
Any coward can be brave;
When the skies are bright and sunny
Any man his flag can wave.
But the test of every fellow
Is disaster's sudden blow,
And if he is streaked with yellow
���It is then that it will show.
You will never find a quitter
If he's leading in the race;
It is when the fight grows bitter
And another makes the pace
That the coward starts to bellow
And to whimper at his woe;
If a man is streaked with yellow
When he's pressed it's sure to show.
Can you stand thelgaff of losing,
Can you battle to the end;
Take the cuffing and the bruising
And not let your courage bend?
For the test of pluck is never
When you're leading in the race,
But are you game as ever
When another sets the pace?
