BUBBLE To -what shifts the members of tfca O. B. U. are driven j to support and keep llto to fast waning cause is demonstrated by the Itst means employed In the bogus an- nouncement that the delegates sitting in conference in Calgary had receiv ed a cable menage from the redoubl- ablo'Robert Smillio' urging them to Join In a sympathetic strike with the miners In Great Britain on Septera- her 25lh, the date proposed overseas. Like many another babble of the 0. 13. U., this one has been pricked in the denial given to tie statement fcy Mr. Smillie himself, in an authentic cahle message. Ths sham announcement of the 0. B. U. was a hid tor sympathy under nothing short of false pretences. lu so doles the position of the organisa- tion cannot he Improved. It cannot hope to thrive and flourish with shams, and. incidentally, jhiq reliance on sham In the tray ol the bogus mea- sage Indicates the sham of the'whole increment. One of the delegates to the 0. B. U. convention said, IL is stated, .that the O. B. U. purse was well drained, and that the financial statement "showed there -was a defkit of Prom this It may he opined thai on the principle ot "aay port in a storm" the O. B. U. conference seized on the Idea of the bogus message. It may have been re- garded a sm art-move, but the O. B. V, reckoned without their host Robert .Smlllte. However, with this vain at tempt to.bolster their cause and at the same time replenish their ury, the 0. B. U. leaders have been "hoist with their own in the unfavorable Impression such tactics cannot but Smillle, as one ot the radl- extremists in the Labor camp In Britain, may he guilty of many things in his creed ot direct action, hut he appears to have the discretion of steering clear of tbi ranks of the O.

THE IMPORTANCE OF REGISTRATION On October 25th the electors of tho Province will be called on lo decide "Yes" or "No" to the following ques- lion, "Shall the importation or bring- ing of .'atoxicating liquors into' the -Province ha To make -the. vote as fuljy representative as possible, and ia to prevent, no matter the issue, anything of the grievance that the iscae has been 'decided by a minority of the electors of the Prov- ince, it is of Importance that every individual'who is so entitled should make use of his or her vote. To do this it ia absolutely essential that his or her name appear on the voters' lists now teing compiled at the regis- tration office: now open. Independently of the referendum it should be- remembered that tho voting lists at present being com- J'iled may be used In case a general election takes place before the Dom- inion census is taken, that Is in 1921. Thia may likelihood so happen legislation being passed to that ef- fect at the next Dominion session, .should the Government decide to go to the country immediately. The process ot registration may therefore tery well mean the killing o( two birds with one stone. Aa a guide to those who register for the purpose of voting on Oclobsr 25th, it will he In place to point out that the Canada Temperance tVct. as recently amended, shows exactly what tho proposed prohibition of Import- ation means. will exclude from tho Province, except for sacramental, medicinal or industrial purposes, all intoxicating liquor other that "which, under the laws 'of the Prov- ince or Territory In-which the prohibi- tion !s !n force, may ho lawfully.sold n will prohibit not only THE ULTIMATE CONSUMER Copyright, Sls.t Century Psess. importation, but the maunfacture cr sale ot liquor Intended for importa- tion. The penalty for the first -offence against the Act will be a fine of from fJOO to Jl.OOO, or imprisonment for from three to six months. For each subsequent offence the penally is im- prisonment of from six months to one year. And in' the case of a person ac- cused, the onus rests on him of prov- ing his iunocence. THE A. P. P.' AND THE NUISANCE The Provincial Mice ought to get out Into the irrigated district and force some of the fanners to clean up the Canadian Thistles'that are abundant in som.e H may be too lote now hecausBjllie thistles are so ripe that their seeds are likely floating about the country. An example should be made of some of tho careless farm- ers who have.allowed these thistles to nourish alf through the summer and who are_not doing anything (o destroy. them now. Wills weeds seem to floarish on I'ue country roads. It is encouraging to note that the city officials have nen engaged in removing the weeds 'TOOL the city, sleets and boulevards. How would it be If the Provincial'PO- fce were to enter a he Provincial Government for neg- igence In getting rid of the weeds in public thoroughfares in the conntry?

What would it be If tariff were atw.Uah.ed? In Ua ad- vantages of United States manufac- over 'Canadian maoafaciiirerft, the atattntut argues that the United States maintained a protective tariff for 131 years, Ciusda for 4S years; that the United States has a more highly organized industrial len, supported by greater wealth; that United Stales aro assured their home market of guaranteeing a large out- put and their ability to spedaUae, while the Canadian home market' of has already bean -swlously invaded; that the United Slates his comparaihrely a greater labor sup- ply; that were il not for the tariff United (JUtes manufacturers, during periods of over production, could flood Canadian markets until many Cana- dian manufacturers were driven out of busiriew, and than, having secured control of the Canadian markets, could chargeiwhat prices they liked. It ia Canadian natural-, re- sources shdnld be conserved and that Canadian products should not be ex- ported in the raw stale, hot-that they shoal d, be' manufactured aa tar as possible, hi Canada In order, to. create provide employment, and add to the national wealth.. The statement expresses strong prbval ot arranging preferential tar- iffs among the various countries of the British -Empire, similar to thoM now. afforded by the customs tartfl ot Canada, to such countries. Refer- ence is'1 made to the accomplishment of the Canadian industrial system.dur- ing the war.' It we had not bnilt iip a factory, system with its allied busi- ness, if our manufacturers' -business had .been' done for us largely by ether countries, then Canada could not have nent so many men to the war, could supplied shells, ships, and aeroplanes, could not have given large financial aid, and could not haire soldiers. Conclusion The statement concludes as follows: "In the course of this statement an effort has- beeu made' to show'1 that manufacturing in Canada-is insepar- ably connected irith other industries; 'that two million wage earners and de- pendants' seciire their- Hying pi manufacturing, and that-most'of the remainder'of the poinfla'Uon derive in- direct benefits; that: a whole has made remarkable progress under the National Poltey: of protec- tion; that, with the'.entire world swinging towards protection, Canada cannot relinquish it; 'revision, of the tariff should be scientific1 and take into consideration, th'e require- ment of all classes, that a stable fis- cal policy of protection'with, some1 as- surance of permanence-is a vltalneed; and, finally, lhat the aim of the fiscal policy, detenu raei-.ciVresttlt enquiry, should be to advance Canada towards her destiny .as a fall develop- ed nation withln'tne British Empire."

The principal factories engaged In the production of farm implements.In Ihis country have shown that they; are able to maintain an export trade abroad equal in pro- portion to thoir home trade. At least in: the ,case of one concern, manufac- turing farm impiemenls, export Irade represents considerably- more thar. half of the totaktaslness transacted.
