LABOR MAN'S WARXINQ (ABOUT BOLSHEViKI - : ET.pry.^oncciDon't follow the Bolshles. I have Sj'een here only a short time, and al-"ready I find evidence of the Bolshles here. The I.W.W. agitaUon is a German trick. The Germans tyy to itlr up discontent and anarchy through them. I want to warn the CanadUin orkingman against Bolshevism. We bare means at hand to obtain^ our Tights along constitutional lines. But ilon't,follow the Bolshies. They ate IPen It� a hurry. Tiey want to put Everything right in twelve months, g'hey are followers of Karl Marx. They �ull down everything, destroy everything, and have nothing to put in Itsy place. Bolshevism simply meanb mur-' 'der. That Is what they did in Rui-Bia. But'I have ,great confidence Ih Tithe Russian peasant, because his soul -is filled with 'the teachings of such an en as Tolstoy. In Russia the Biql-�shles de&troyed-. everything they got their hands on. Tliey, killed' every inan of intellect. Lenlne and Trotsky are the paid agents of .the dirty, filthy Hun. For the sake of liberty be sane �nd work along constitutional lines." DIFFICULTIES OF OEMOBILIZATION There are many people inclined to icensure the government because no definite deonobllization scheme hfas /been announced. But critics of the government, if they would only realize the divergent views on the subject "Of men who have been in close .touch \vith the aoldl^rs In the past lour years, would not be so hasty In their opinions. /'. Major-Gen. a. D. McRae-wants th� .oldiei-a brought ^back as auickly as 'possible and returned xo civil life. Rev. John Prlngle, an overseas r A. �t Calgary, thj^nks that If men Irf itumed loose with w year's pay in (|ielr pockets, and no Immediate pros-^fC!t Off work, that the country will ]) �w;amped in a very short time, and organizations tor their benefit tTWOuld be hard put to it to handle m. -. ^..'resident Thos.- JJoiigworth of the l|cal branch of the G.W.V.A. is In fa-^ of holding the men in the army, plowing each individual to draw his 4l8charge as he finds a position In jb^ life. 'jf;|k)me want the men returned by t^ides. Otherff wianfc them returned units. ^ ."^^f It-any wonder in face of all these 5|^ert opinions, that the government '||^ moving slowly before making a 4^1jilte decision? sponsible may be allowed to go scot-free. There are many ways In which the Germans and their friends are endeavoring to accomplish tbls. Thoy are crying aloud for food, asking for pity in their hunger, telling us that Gex^ man babies are , without milk, and otherwise trying to play on our sympathies in order tliat "we may have our attention 'turned from the crime of poison gas. the criuie of the U-boat pirate, the crime of ill-treatment of our prisoners who tell into their hands, the criniie of the murder of NursQ^avell and Capt. Fryatt and all the other crimes charged up against (he unspeakable Hun. It there were no oUier crime tlian that of brutal treatment of prisoners, that would be enough to steel the hearts of the allied people to demand punishment of Germany and the Germans befitting the crime. It is hard for us to realize the brutal manner iu which the Huns treated our own Canadian prisoners, but we have the word of Major Streight, speaking before the Women's Liberal Club in Toronto that, during the fighting in the Ypres salient when the Third Division was overwhelmed, after prisoners had been sent back a motor car driven by Germans ran through the lines of limping soldiers without warning. Under thft treatment one poor fellow fell: The major asked that he be picked, up. Instead of giving orders to this effect, two German officers-presumably under-officers-went forward and bayoneted the helpless man. The major saw this murder, and a similar one later on during the march. He also saw a prisoner kicked to death by his guards. This happened after the men were well behind the German lines, away from the. battle, so that there was no excuse that the frenzy of fighting was responsible for the brutality. It was plain Hunnish'ness," and the world will never be safe from such another outbreak of the disease until the perpetrators of the Great War are fittingly punished. This is no time for pity" for the "poor Germans." Just keep In^mlnd What";they would have done to tie woTld-had' they not been defeated. CHAIIONHAD ANELECIi The ex-Crown Prince is -proposed as �n lFish3ang,_, Ireland, always was fond-of'trouble. The Toronto Globe points out that the late Christmas shopper cannot complain it Ishe^ gets the early thumb-marka. v The Montreal Star denounces "the filthy tricks of direct bribery." Why not Include indirect bribery? asks the Toronto Globe. -Regarding the Kaiser, HoUand ma^ feel like Old Bill in Baimsfather's cartoon: "If you knows a better 'ole than this, fo to It" (From Our Own CorresDo(iaent> CHAMPION-.

These Include aeventeen hospital and con-valesceat homes In Alberta, ias well as those in tthe old country, carrying cto relief work in France. Belgium. Sei-bia, Italy and Montenegro: A hundred circular letters have been sent out in the district so as to-pre-pare the ground for. the. canvassers. It is hoped that this will be the last appeal for money for a long tinle. On Saturday of this week the ladies' aid of the church will hold' their annual bazaar and sale of home cooking. The sale will commence In the church at two o'clock in the afternoon. A good assortment of-useful and" fancy articles will be on view and those looking for suitable Christmas gifts will probably find what they are looking for at the church on Saturday. Beside the above articles' there will be home cooking for sale, and light refreshments will be served./ The funeral of the late Peter Maas was held on Thursday last In the afternoon. The funeral service wa^^eld in the church and was attended-by a large number of hla friends. Mr.'Maas �was an interesting character and was held in high esteem by everybody. In the absence of Mr. Cook the Rev. Mr. Telfer of Carmangay officiated.. Gn Wednesday of last. week-theLfour weeks old baby of .Mr. and ;Mrs. Clarkson passed away' after .a. .phort illness of Influenza. The twin baby is recovering from -a eimilar attack. The funeral took place at Champion on Friday. �, Owing to the danger of a recurrence of influenza it has be?n decided to cancel the proposed Christmas' tree and entertainment. Although  Champion is more free from the 'flu than almost any town in. the soutli 61- the province, the experience'" of other towns warrants us In taking every precaution. A daughter was born to ' Mr. and Mrs. George Taylor, last week. Bot) mother and daughter are doing well. The result of the election for village councilmen on Monday ' was: Mr. C. McLean, 21; Mr. G.

Comyns Carr is the Liberal candidate against Capt. Baniett, 'Unionist., teoth men have done their bit in the war.^nd the issue has settled into one of officer or private. Carr advertises himself as a "private," and "therefore appeals for the votes of all military comrades and their mothers." Bamett retorts that, although fifty-five years pli and unable to get to the front, he trained 4.5,000 men in musketry, including a thousand -snipers. Dr. Francis L. Patton, of Princeton University^ in speaking, at Toronto declared that it the British Empire and the United States chose to live together in love and harmony they could control the world, both civilized and uncivilized; that they could i)o-lice the seas and keep the peace against any other adverse combination. "That is something worth living for. something worth talking about, and if I were a younger roan I would not want a better missionary career thaii proclaiming this alliance," he exclaimed. Walter Scott's welcome to Journalism is evidently confined to those that agree with his views. In Moose Jaw. the News, the contemporary of the Times, t.'ie Scott paper, refers to a paragraph in one of Mr. Scott's articles which *s contributed from Victoria. B.C., as follows: Mr. Walter Scott then starts to criticize the article in the Free Press, but. before doing so he says: "I must stop writing within five minutes and race to the station to post this, or miss the mail." It is to be regretted both for the salce of Mr. Walter Scott and his readers that that traia did no'; start five minu'es earlier. The Nev/�/ evidently is not iu raptures over the contributions. fFrom Our Own Correspondent) MACLEOD, Dec. 18.-Rathwell district was all excitement this week, especially the young men. just-because a returned soldier visited one '^of the homes accompanied'by-a minister, and-quietly took away the favorite ybung lady of the district. -But thid" is to be expected'from men who spent-two or three years in France with tte Trin-cess' Pats, get woundeSl. spend a few months in a hospital,-and are Invalided home.
