The fact that young men of 19 are to bo drafted has caused a stir iti many homes in the city. Four of the members of the basketball team are affected by the order and they are talking of volunteering in a body with the mounted police. Altogether the feeling seems to be that the situation is serious and must be met. and that sacrifices which are necessary must be made. m GAVE HBt ViNOiroR BRONCHITIS And it Cured Her-Read Mf�.

It is our indention to save the cost of the machine in the first year out of the appropriation allowed for Scavenging. To ensure success it will be necessary that the Citizens themselves assist us by providing proper receptacles or garbage cans and place them at the rear of the lots, so that collectors may dump them into the truck without los5 of '.ime It will be impossible to collect ashes or garbage not placed in garbage cans which can be picked up and dumped. It is necessary to give instructions to our garbage men to this effect, and no gaiden refuse will be collected on any account. ^ ours truly, A. M. GRACE, Commissioner of Public Works. CITYWATERIT YET All CLEAR TilOHgh. owing to the fact that the standpipes and watennains have not yet all been cleaned out. .Sanitary inspector V.iilanee does not care to, give the word that the city water is free from all contamination, it is , nevertheless a fact that it be used \ witli comparative safety. Eight sam- \ pies liave been tested this month. Of; these all eight from the river showed evidence of \eontamination. the aver- i age count being 290. Of the filtered ' water taken at the plant only two .uhowefl any evidence of eontamina-, tion and this was very slight, th^, couni being reduced to 27, which is ; more than satisfactory. The tests of \ water taken at the taps showed six ; free from contamination and two > slightly affected.

Stevens Says Sufficient Man Power in Canada for the Work VANCOUVER Evans Montreal, April l,'^.-Coolie labor was strongly opposed by Ii. II. Stevens, M.P, for Vancouver, in an address last night before the Canadian Club of AVestmount, when he referred to it as "indentured labor" and asserted that there was stifficient man power latent in Canada to bridge the allied gaps in the ranks of men available tor the tasks facing tho nation if that man power were properly mobilized and handled. Mr. Stevens said that the introduction of a sub-servant race of men not free men, would endanger the democracy of Canada. Mr. Rutherford, who moved a vote of thanks to Mr. Stevens for his address, expressed tJte hope that British Columbians would allow some Asiatics to come in. to do work on railroads, etc., which Canadians felt themselves above doing, A petition that Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch resign from Sinai Temple because 01 alleged pro-Germanism, is being circulated- by members of his congregation in Chicago. "The best ever'' was the general expression of all who heard livan-golist Kagan's stirring mesaage last night at the Christian church. Mr. Fagan is jiroving himself to be a speaker of more than average ability. His tree flow of language and his warm hearted enthusiasm, together with liis knowledge of the Scriptures, hold the attention of the audience from first to last. An interesting feature of the meetings is that ao far the evangelist has read all his Scripture lessons from memory. ,^lany are wondering just how much of the New Testament he is able to quote. Last night Mr. Fagan traced in a most interesting manner the story ot .Moses leading the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, through the wilderness to the promised land, and showed how this illustrates Jesus leading the sinner from his bondage in sin, through the church into heaven. His closing statement was, "The only way to prepare for death is to prepare for life by accepting Christ and putting His teachings into daily practice.'' Mrs. Fagan led the atidience in a rou.'jing song service, and also 'He-lighted them with another beautiful solo. She v.ill sing at every service this week. Tho evangelist's message for tonight is "The Last Night in Sodom." He promised liis hearers a warn; time. How Blueejay Ends Coras A is a thin, soft pad which stops the pain by relieyinK the pressure.
