All depends on tlii) date of the arriviil of the French and Italian delegations. DIED DEATH OF BRAVE MAN HON. C. STEWART SPEAKS TO M Major Alvin Ripley, commanding the 20th kethbriclge buttery at tlio front, who bo bravely laid down IiIh lite recently in the fighting In franco, was killed by concussion from the �amo shell that killed his .superior, Col. Rritton, ub It Ult. their hoadc\uar-lors. Motif. Col. lllair Rlpluy, brother ot the dead soldier and commander ot tho construction corps, in a (otter to Mrs. Illpley here, tells how the gallant,major met hia duath. Me Bays in part: "On tho afternoon of May '-'tid wlillo be was discussing, the program of Iho following day with Col. Britton, tho brigadier at the headquarters of the latter, a hlfih - exploitive shell struck the place. Col. Britton waB killed by tho fragments of the shell, but Alvin lost his life probably in tho thousandth part of a Hccond by the terrific concuBslon. Both ho and his colonol were placed wide by side In a little cemetery at Aux Kelt?, or as the army call it, Kelt'/, corner, a fow milos north of Arras. Ho did his duty not only bravely and cheerfully and the beuutiful arid peaceful face as I saw it was a grand sight.! He was quite happy when I saw him alive last, and the happiness was kUI! there." Col. Ripley is making arrangements If possible to have the remains of the late iMajor Ripley sent home after the war. He rofers to the funeral, which he was able to attend, as being very Impressive. He says: "I can tell yo.u that the esteem and pride with which ho was held by the army was clearly Rhown as we marched along the road to the final resting place. Everybody that was not actually fighting was there and every soldier by the roadside stopped his toil till we had passed." Lieut.-Col. Stewart^ commanding the 5th artillery brigade, and who formerly commanded the L'Oth battery, when the late Major Ripley was captain, writes to Mrs. Ripley as follows: "He did not know what fear was and he certainly was tried out on various occasions and the men always . looked to the major for directions. Ho would walk along and pay no attention to the shells yet at the same tlmo he took ordinary precautious to protect himself. In .June of last year the battery was badly shelled on numerous occasions and ho had managed to have a deep trench dug. Into this ho would hustle the men and then send them away as occasion of fared, always being the last man to leave htmBo.lf. it was on such occasions that Alvin showed up with his coolness and his fearlessness for which lie was so well known and admired by the boys. He never asked anyone to go to a place he himself would not go, and he would find the observing stations and make ills visits to tho front trenches every day when it was required. On one occasion he was going around with an officer of Col. Hell's battalion and warned him to keep low at a certain place. The officer forgot, his instructions and was killed. While visiting tliis same portion of the line he decided to make a tunnel and have an observing station where he would have plenty of cover. To gel to this place they had to wait till it was dark. He visited the place several times so that his men would see. He wanted them tq_ know that he knew what they were doing. On this night in question ho got to tho place quite easily but when he and an Knglish officer who was attached for instruction were coming back they got Into a perfect hall of machine gun bullets for some 1006 yards or more. He told ine about this experience and said it was one of the worst ho had ever had. When the time came for manliness to show, Alvin was always one of the outstanding examples. He was a good disciplinarian and yet beloved by his men. Of those higher up I know that they had every admiration for his ability. During December when Col. Britton was away on leave Alvin was acting 0. C. and the general was well satisfied with his work. On one occasion he took Donald McKillop to the observing station about a year ago, and they got quite a strafing. He warned Donald about what ho might have to go through, and he spoke in the highest terms of Donald's behavior under the fire." ENCE, (From Our Own Col ivsi�;i,iient) I'incher Creek.

Hut at the conclusion of j the war when conditions might ho j such that labor was plentiful, then ! public work would be gone pn with i and would help to relieve any bad I i times that will probably result while ' it lie readjusting period is on. j !

That is a Dominion Govern* j tnent .lob. I In conclusion he asked everyone to j give the matter of voting deep con- | slderaliou and to give credit where j credit was due. Discussing tho quest ion of disfranchising aliens, he stated that if an alien was not entitled to vote he should be interned and regarding the soldiers voting he quoted from a letter received from Capt. Stauffer thai soldiers were not thinking abo.ttl the ballots and they were scattered about too much to make' voting'" feasible.' Mr. E. Beverldge preceded7 the principal speager of tho eyonlng, and gave a very interesting talk on the question of "democracy. He questioned the Nou-l'artisan League attitude on the question and concluded that, they had an entirely wrong conception of what was the. trup definition of the term. He thought it was a menace to see honest, men affiliating with such a system as the N. P. L., which he categorized as raw socialism. He also attacked their statement in regard to more being no difference between the two parties, and going back outlined the fundamental principles of Liberalism and Conservatism, showing a considerable divergence of policies between the two parties. The speaker also criticised the address of Mr. John Kemmis, M. P.P., appearing In the Pinchor Creek Echo last week and pointed out that the present member had said thai credit for the recent boons did not beloug entirely to the Liberal party but were supported by the (.'onser-j vatlves. Mr. Beveridge maintained that Mr. Komrals evidently intended I that the voters should not vote for tho Liberal party because they had recolved what they wanted when they asked for it. He concluded by outlining democracy ns Individual liberty and individual initiative, which he claimed were exemplified In the Liberal doctrine. He considered that i\lr. Slfton should go bock on past record and thought that the women or the province realized the serious responsibility of having the franchise and would take the government on its merits.. ever sold.-J.
