For It is in almost a month after the residents of British Columbia have rendered their the Balkans that campaign decision.. The Liberals do not tear the can be made most successful. The honest decision ot the soldiers, but they fear, and rightly so, that the vote will be'manipulated by the Bowser: ites as no proper provisions ior safe- guarding the taking of the vote were made. If the' Liberals were to lead by k of success mat crowns me a few seats in tomorrow's vote. It is invasion of Rumania. The al-1 possible for the-machine to utilize the weather is more, favorable there for winter fighting. It is therefore cheer- ing to hear of the defeat of the Bul- sars on the Strums, the invasion of Serbia by the Russ-Rumanians, and the lack of success that crowns the Bulgar iuva ies now have their plans working, and just as innumerable Teuton hordes ov- erran Serbia and Montenegro a year :igo, so now is Bulgaria threatened with extinction by the allies oa many sides.

The defeat of the Bowser govern- ment would not he a victory for Liber- alism so'much as for" the" people of B. C. of all classes. Prominent Con- servatives are working with the Liber- als to defeat the government. It is only the machine element that is stay- ing with the Bowser crowd. TOMORROW'S ELECTION IN BRITISH COLUMBIA Aa. unusually long political cain- paigr. practically- ends in British Col- umbia tonight. Tomorrow the voting take place and it Is possible that a change of government will result. It must be remembered, however, that at the last general elections in British Columbia not one Liberal was elected and but for two the Mc- Bride government, now the Bowser government, was master of the entire legislature. Some months ago two; Liberals" were returned in bye-elec- tions. In order to defeat the govern- ment a majority of almost forty has to be wiped-out That would-seem be yond .possibility were it not that the bye-elections at Victoria and Vancou ver early in .the.year established that the government had lost its grip. Brit- ish Columbia is thoroughly aroused to the importance and need of a change of government. The .province. Knder the McBride" and Bowser regime has been brought close to bankruptcy." One of the richest provinces in the Domin- ion has been "bled white" by men, chief aim was to build np pri- vate 'ortunes and a powerful, relenr less machine. II is not so much a con- test to overthrow a Conservative gov- ernment as a contest to get rid of a had government that is. unworthy of the name Conservative. McBride and Bowser acted like "drunken sailors" the money and public lands of the people. They allowed Mackenzie Mann an'd other railroad promoters to grow fat on gifts from the treasury. The government land policy was. an outrage. It had no regard for the set- tler whatever but was'solely directed for the benefit of the speculator and consequently today great tracts of land are unsettled because they are held at a high price by these specula tors The. Ibernls promise an entire reversal of this -policy. The patronage system has been 8 curse in the coast "province, and Mr the Liberal leader, is the first ..party, leader to coins out flat-foot- ed, for Its abolition.

Instead of singing "London, bridge is burning down" it may be sung now "Quebec bridge is falling down." It does so regularly. Lethbridge branch of the Red Cross is going to double its contributions in the coming year. That's the right sort of determination and the kind that will succeed. The Dominion war loan is a good investment and a good way to help out the country in time of war. If you have, a few hundreds to invest you can't find a better place.
