For throwing mud at a neighbor,
a citizen of Stratford, Ont., was
fined jSi and costs. Magistrate
O'Loane of that city, who is Irish,
remarked that that was a pastime
reserved for editors and politicians,
and the citizen, being a respectable
member of society, has no right to
indulge in it.
Answer To Bernhardi
Philadelphia Public Ledger:
Bernhardi thought that Great Britain could put in the field not more
than 130,000 "hirelings " and of
the Colonial militia he wrote contemptuously that in the martial
reckoning it could be "completely
ignored." The answer is that
there are ^00,000 men who stand in
England's name upon the firing line
German Influence
London Chronicle: German influence, long very potent at Petro-
gtad. has always been exerted on
the side of the reactionaries. Germany, says Mr, Schauman, was
"Russia's evil genius." Having
now shaken herself free from the
influence of 1'russianism, Russia
seems to be breathing a new and
more invigorating atmosphere. All
over the yast dominions of the Tsar
liberal ideas are in the air.
per cent, of rye may he added to
wheat flour, and twenty per cent. I
of potato flour added to rye. It'
was also decided lo prohibit the
feeding of wheat and rye to live
stock, whereas heretofore one fourth ]
of the rye yield was consumed in
this manner. It was further decided to restrict the amount of rye I
used for distilling spirits to 60 per I
ceit. of the normal consumption. |
The hoarding of grain for speculative purposes is prohibited, and
compulsory selling under expropriation proceedings provided for.
The Bundesrath adopted a scale of
maximum prices for grain. The
maximum price for rye is 220
marks ($55) a ton for Berlin, with
a proportional difference for other
cities. The price of wheat remains
40 marks higher than rve, These
preparations show a weak spot in
Germany's battle front that they
will play an important part in the
next year of the war if it lasts that
long, aa it probably will. Britain
and the Allies will certainly make
every effort to prevent food getting
into Germany, and perhaps this
explains the anxiety of the German
armies to secure control of the Belgian and French seaports, But the
Germans won't get them if they
can possibly be prevented.
Russia's Heroism
London Mail: Russia in these
later days has risen to heights of
heroism of which those who did not
know her well might have deemed
her incapable. Her generals and
her soldiers have put forth efiorts
bordering on the incredible. It is
no small measure to their valor that
Great Britain and France owe the
signs of approaching victory.
Knights of Pythias
The Knights of Pythias gaye
brothers Alder Evans and Angus
Beaton a hearty sendoff at their hall
on Tuesday evening last.
At the close of regular business
refreshments were served while
many songs were sung by the members,
Fitting speeches were made and
toasts proposed and responded to,
in which were expressed the warm
friendship and brotherly love of the
lodge towards the two members
who have volunteered their services
for the front.
The boys regretted that they Were
unable to detain the departing
brothers after 11 p, m., as they had
to attend another party which had
been arranged for them.
What Mr. Gladstone Would Do
Westminster Gazette: Mr, Gladstone, so far from saying that Germany "had a right" to violate
Belgian neutrality, took steps in
1870 to prevent the violation of
that neutrality. It is true that at
that time it was France which had
to be curbed and controlled, but
that in no way affects the value of
the precedant t'. en created. If
Germany had wished to act "according to Mr. Gladstone," she
would have respected the neutrality
of Belgium, and not have treated
t'lat unfortunate little nation with
the ruthless barbarity which has
staggered humanity.
Germany's Food for
the Coming Year
Germany is beginning to realize
that she is engaged in a far more
desperate and lengthly struggle
than she anticipated. The Bundesrath, the German Upper Chamber, has met and discussed ways
and means of conserving the food
supply of the people during the
coming year, and decided that with
certain expedients the grain supply-
would be ample uutil the 1915 crop
had been harvested. The mills will these
be allowed to convert larger  pet.
Letter to The Editor
Editor Review.
Dear Sir:���Allow me to remind
you that in a few weeks from the
present date the city of Courtenay
will be governed by a City Council
of a Mayor and six Aldermen.
And I hope that every voter will
consider carefully the importance
of electing a City Council of impartial fair minded men who will
endeavour to frame all the by-laws
in proper form so that no special
privilege will be given to any class
of people which would operate as
a hardship to other classes within
the municipality, and also it would
be wise to protest against any unnecessary expenses or oppressive
taxation for city utilities which
would be a hardship to the ratepayers in these dull times.
One of the principal reasons stated by some of the prominent men
of Courtenay why the town should
be incorporated immediately was
to prevent any private company
from getting control of the city
utilities, such as the Electric Light
or the Water Supply, and that the
city should be in a position to
dictate the terms upon which any
private company might be allowed
to operate or supply the city with
these necessities. But the same
men who spoke out boldly at the
public meetings denouncing any
private company who might try to
get control of the city utilities,
same advocates in favor of
incorporation signed their names at

the same, but they have now at
this date an agreement with a.
private company to supply their
premises with electric light for one
year in violation of their first
principles, and by this inconsistent
action they have ignored the City
Council because they have extended
their contract for electric light into
1915 during part ot the term which
the City Council and ratepayers
should dictate terms in these matters, evidently these men care
nothin . abo"t having signed in
favor of incorporation. They are

Off To Enlist
A large number of citizens
gathered at the station on Wednesday morning to bid bon voyage
to Messrs. Kvans and Beaton,
who left by the 11.45 train for
Victoria to enlist in the next overseas contingent. A number of
the scholars, both from the day and
night school, were present. As the
train pulled out, Three Cheers and
a tiger were given, and -'Its A Long
Way to Tipperary" was sung.

native of Sweeden, accidently shot.

wood's Funeral parlors to Sandwick cemetery, Rev- T. Menzies

Kirkwood's Parlours, Rev. T.
Menzies officiating at the church
and graveside.
Droskie���At New Westminster;
on Friday, Nov. 27, T- Droskie,
of Union Bay. The funeral took
place at Cumberland, on Nov. 29,
auspices of Hiram Lodge No. 14,
A. F. & A. M., of which he was a

children to mourn his loss.
Victoria   Notes
The Victoria Corporation hns
practically decided to reduce its expenditure for 1915 to the extent of
25 per cent, in order to meet the
distress caused by the depression,
The boom years were the cause of
much outlay which i.s not yet paid
for, and local improvements together with the current taxatiou make
the burden upon the ratepayers a
heavy one. The average householder iu a six-room house, living
on the 1 1-2 mile circle has about
from $80 to $100 to pay each year
for rates and taxes, in addition to
household light and water. Courtenay needs to keep a sharp check
upon all outlay execept that for
There is a distinct improvement
being manifested conditions in Eaxt
ern Canada, and the movement may
be trusted to extend to the West
The immense war orders now beihg
placed with Eastern firms must have
its effect upon the whole Dominion
and compensate largely for the dis
location caused by the war.
A further decline in sugar has to
be recorded, one Victoria firm offering a twenty pound bag for $1.34
this week. The speculators will
soon be forced to unload if the
steady drop continues, and many
must have been caught napping.

Public Ownership
Declared Failure
Seattle. Nov. 14,���Municipal
ownership of public utilities was denounced mercilessly as a fallacy
which, eventually, will become
overwhelmingly burdensome to the
people, who, in the end pay the
bills, By A. V. Bouillon, former
uperintehdant of public utilities In
Seattle, at the conference of the
1 eagtte of Municipalities in the
Young Men's Christian Association.
"Municipal ownership, as exem
plified loi ally by the city's attempt
to operate a street railway system
nnd the poit's improvements in
.Seattle harbor" was scored by Kenneth G. I'.cir, editor of Railway
and Marine News, Ken also scathingly arraigned the Government
CttBle between this citj aud Alaska,
declaring its operation is inefficient
and extravagant and the cost to the
public unreasonably high.
Mayor W. J. Hindley, Spokane,
tunicipal ownership supported
commended Houllion's address lo
the delegates, saying that, whil >* he
did nol accept certain conclusions,
he would admit the great tendency
of many public plants not properly
io account for charges against
Bouillon says municipal mechanism is intricate enough; that more
functions will lower its efficiency;
that those calling loudest to spend ''
public money often pay the least
taxes; that private enterprise
thrives on efficiency but public
works fall through political skill
and ambitious experience; that it is
easy to "fake" public accounting,
ana that tne citizens' feeling of
proprietorship iu public works is
wholly imaginary,
Kerr said of the Port Commission that while the construction of
its improvements had been beyond
criticism, it had spent millions of
dollars without bringing a single
new steamship line to the city.
Also he declared that the municipal street railway system in Seattle
is a single failure and would continue to be one for many years to
come, if not forever.
Charles E. Warren, leading engineer of Portland, who opened the
negative side of the argument on
the question, "Shall Municipalities
Own Their Public Utilities?" taking the place on the program of A.
S. Miller, a New York attorney
who was unable to appear, said
private utility companies are taxed
and regulated by public service
commissions or other like bodies,
but that public utilities are not
taxed and are permitted to run on
the go-as-you-please plan.

Plums Are Growing 0
On An Apple Tree
Plums growing on an apple tree,
it sound like an impossibility, but
an instance of this strange freak of
nature has been discovered by Mr,
Tom Wilson, the veteran inspector
of Indian orchards, in the course
of his duties. The strange sight
was seen in an orchard near Na-
niamo, and enquiries have revealed
that it is the result of artificial
grafting. The owner had made a
hole in the tree, and inserted therein a bud from a plum tree. In
due course the bud sprouted and
grew into a branch, which this
year bore clustsrs of plums while
the rest of the tree bore apples.
Such a result of grafting had always been considered improbable,
and a careful examination has
shown that it is not a true graft,
inasmuch as there is no fusion of
the tree's wood and the scion. The
bud has grown in the hole in the
hole in 'ihe tree until it) has formed
a _ind of ball and socket joint,
The conncection is a mechanical
rather than a organic one, and
allows the sap of the apple tree to
enter into the plum branch, where
it is turned into plum blossoms and
plum fruit.
Mr. Wilson is making the unusual discovery the subject of au
article in the farming journals.
People are always begging somebody's pardon���just as if they
really wanted it.
