CRANBROOK,    B.    0.      SATURDAY        MORNING   DECEMBER    5,    1914.
No. 49
There is a curious harmony about
the names of General .loflre, chief
Ot start and commander-in-chief of
the French armies, and Field Marshal Sir John French, chief of the
Drltish general stall and commander-
in-chief of the British land forces operating in France and L'elgium.
Above nre thc names of both commanders. The tirst half of "Joflre"
and tho lirst haU of "French" spell
"Joflre." Moreover, the second half
of "JofTro*' and the second half of
"French" spell "French." Even to
those who would indignantly deny
uny suggestion thut they aro superstitious, this coincidence about the
names may appeal as an augury of
certain success. It will be remembered that thc name of the British commander-in-chief wns taken by the
French people as a hippy coincidence.
There are a number of striving
ways in which these two men are similar. Each is 62 years of age. Each
became chief of start of hiB respective
army since 1911. They are strategists of the same school, men of
calmness. nnd firm resolve who are nt
their best when the task is greatest
and the odds against them are biggest.
Drastic Regulations
London, Dec. 2.—The new regulations for the defence of the realm in
the consolidation act. published Monday give t'ie admiralty and army
council virtual powers to abrogate
all ordinary liberties of British sub-
JcrtB and invests them with absolute
power to do whatever they think necessary for defense. All rights of private property go, the fighting leaders having power to take any land
or buildings, commandeer any factories or workshop, clear inhabit
tants from any district and unlimited power to search and arrest.
Rights of trial by judge and jury
case, courtmartial having power to
inflict on any civilian punishment by
death, penal servitude for life, or a
less penalty.
The government,. however, through
the lord chancellor, hns promised
tbat no civilian British subject, not
under martial law, shall be deprived
of life by court-martial until parliament meets again.
TheBe drastic regulations, only six
months ago unthinkable, today are
taken us a matter of course by all
Lord Salisbury, however, says that
thc proposal of the bill Ib the most
unconstitutional thing that ever happened in this country.
Fruit Union Fined
For contravening Section 321b of
tbe Inspection ami Suit's Act the
Creston Fruit Growers' Union was
on Wednesday lined $10.
Tbe information wns laid by II.

Good Test for Permanent Institution
New J-ocation
In another part of this Issue will
be found an ndvertisement from Ira
Manning, Limited, in which they are
advising the general public ol their
large Improved space for the display
of goods which they have in their
new location.
ThiB Arm has been doing buaineas
ln Crnnbrook for a number of years
and many changes have been made
for the improvement of and in the
interests of their large number of
customers. The business haB been
continually growing under the management of Ira Manning, so much so
tbat further steps were taken to enlarge the scope which such Improvements ncreisitated. The recently
incorporated company took over all
the interests of Mr. Manning and
their latest stroke of business is to
absorb the interests of Crowe Bros.,
Into whose premises the whole ol the
stock-in-trade haa heen moved.
Groceries have ever been the mainstay and the largest branch dt their
establishment; this will continue to
be so, but with the addition of
Crowe Bros.' Btock the frm will now
have and wlll exhibit in their extensive Bhow rooms the flneBt display of
crockery, china and glassware in the
It Ib not out of place to mention
that their ato<n of confectionery Ib
of such a quality that tbey are justly proud to draw the attention of
the public to Its dellciousness.
Among the boxes of sweetB there are
a large number which would be lust
the right kind of a present to make
to a friend. Boxes of chocolates are
very tastily put up and other sweets
nlso are In like Horrn.
The move that Messrs. Ira Manning, Ltd., have made at this season
to the larger premisee will add
greatly to the comfort of purchasers
in that the display covers so much
more space and is consequently not
cramped in any way, thus making it
easier to make a choice ln the line
from which they wish to purchase,
whether it be groceries, crockery or
confectionery. The ground floor of
the establishment is being teed almost exclusively for groceries and
confectionery and the upper floor for
crockery and glassware. Comfort and
convenience is being studiously observed in the methods of serving customers and answering to tbelr requirements.
The flrst meeting of tbe Directors
of the CronbrooK Farmers' Institute
was held on Wednesday, December 2,
when Mr. A. B. Smith was re-elected
to the presidency ol thc Institute;
Mr. B. Palmer was elected vice-preBl-
dent and Mr. Albert H. Webb was reelected secretary.
The program for the next meeting
that will be held in the Old Gymnasium on Saturday, December 12th,
nt 2 p. m.. was fully arranged. At
this meeting a paper will be read by
the president, A. B. Smith. It might
be well to make mention of the fact
that tbis paper was arranged to
have been read at the Annual meeting but owing to the hour being late
It was postponed. The subject wtll
be "Hogs," and Bhould prove very interesting to all the farmers of the
district owing principally to the trou
ble several   of the   h >g raisers   are
having at this time with hog cholera
and other causes.
The secretary will also have a report to make re the proposed market to he Instituted ln Cranbrook.
ThiB Is a very important subject and
one that vitally utlects the who'e
community and especially the small
The subject of a public mai<:et will
bo one that will bring forth a good
deal of dlBcussion. At present, lt
appears that the whole subject hangs
on tbe question "Caa the farmers ot
the district pro\lle enough butter,
eggs, vegetables, cream, cheese, pork,
bacon and home-products, to justify the provision hy thc city of a
pulf.ic market?" We well know they
ought to be able, but can they? Tbat
is the question.
The directors felt themselves Justified in making tbe test and   so   ap
proached Mr. W. B. McFarlane for
the use of his old store on Armstrong
avenrn. Mr. McFarlane kindly placed the Btore at tholr disposal free ol
charge 'Ior the month ol December.
After due consideration the directors decided to havo a market on
Saturday, 19, Thursday 24th and
Thursday 31st. Tbe directors arc
anxious to mnke this a big success
and should be elad lf the hoi a wife
would keep these dateB in mind when
nbout to buy products Ifrom the usual source.
In the event of the market being a
succeBS thc directors bnve already
made temporary arrangements Ior
the use and control of the budding
belonging to Mr. W. Hamilton on
Cranbrook avenue, recently occupied
by Deacon's Live-y. Necessary alterations could eaBily be made to
suit the market's need.
An order-ln-couneil which wns passed on Octobor 23, provides that any
person who has gone to the front to
serve with any of the Allied armies
anil who holds mining rlghtB In the
Dominion, shrill he allowed to hold
theso rights without thc necessity of

The announcement that soldiers
holding rights would be exempt Is
expressed as follows:
"The minister, therefore, recommends that any person who may be

British or Allied forces, nnd who is

peace, In bo far as the British Empire Is concerned."

The Allies^ Leaders
General Joflre hns shown himself a
man of supreme self-control. He has
known when to strike and when not
to strike, and he haa never yielded*
to temptation to do merely the
smart or the brilliant thing, although It looked comparatively sate.
The understanding that bas been
reached between him and Sir John
French has heen no mere ordinary regard or affair df joint responsibility.
The two men believe in each other,
and it would scarcely be an exaggeration to say that the bouils that
' hold them are bonds of affection. Tho
report that General Joffre has given
I the control of a portion ol his army
to Sir John French to work in cooperation with the British Is indicative of their cordial relations.
Bacon Scarce in the
Old Country
The morning rasher Ib becoming
more scarce in England, aB supplies
have not been received Irom Holland
for the last fortnight. Denmark continues to Bend bacon to England,
but the high prices of feed prevailing
there threaten a shortage.
Most of the Canadian and Irish
bacon reaching England is being
purchased by the Government for
army and navy supplies. The wholesale prices have not been increased,
but an advance- is inevitable if the
Butch supply is cut ofl.
New Medical Invention
A preparation has been Invented by
some Swiss medical men whlcb, it ia
said, will stop almost Instantly the
flow Ol blood from a wound. It has
been named coagulen.
It is in the form of a powder, and
is dissolved In wnter before being applied to n wound. The discoverers of
coagulen have made a gift of their
invention to the armies tn the field,
and have sent large quantities of the
powder to the surgical headquarters
of both the German and French armies. It will likely save thousands
ot HveB.
Women's Institute Celebrate Anniversary
The Women's Institute held a most
successful social and dance on Friday evening last, Nov. 27, In the Maple Hall, to celebrate the fifth anniversary ot the inception of the local
branch. The hall was crowded to its
utmost capacity when proceedings
commenced ot 8.15, witb the president, Mrs. E. H. Leaman, giving a
few remarks relating to the object of
the Institute and a brief record of Its
work. Immediately after Mrs. Leaman called upon the first vice-president, Mrs. W.B.MacFarlane, to take
the chair owing to herself taking]
part in the program. j
The flint Item was thc singing   of
the Maple Leaf in which tho audience
joined.   This was followed by a   ae-1
lection by Mrs.  Wnllinger's Juveniio
orchestra, which was loudly applauded.  Those taking part were   Mastir ;
Wnlllngrr, MIsb Wnnda Fink,   Master
Vincent   Fink   and Miss Helen Worden.   These children acquitted   them-1
selves s|lenclldly to tho great delight
of the ajidlcncc and aro a great ere-1
dit to their   teacher, Mrs. Wnlllnger.
Tho standard bearer of thc Institute,
Mrs. Goo. Hougham, recited the Union Jack, which wnB well received.   I
Mrs.    Jack   Kennedy gavo a   most
sympathetic rendering of "The Song!
that Reached My Heart," which call-1
torth vociferous applnuse. i
The violin solo lollowlng by Mrs.
Walllnger held tho a'lllencc In close
attention nnd was a   great treat.       I
Mrs. Spence with hor humorous'
reading caused much merriment, und
wbb thoroughly enjoyed.
Mrs. B, I). Inland's song ol "connubial bliss" which untortnn itely was
too elusive, being "ovor so lar away"
took thn audience by storm, and nn

The Juveniio orchestra rendered another, selection In which Ihcy quite

being remarkable.

Frank Houghton contributes a vivid account of a polar hear hint in
the a-ctic regions to the December
issue df Rod and Gun in Canada,
published at Woodstock, Ont., by W.
J. Taylor, Limited. "The Hermit of
White Otter Lake" tells the story of
a canoe trip that led to a wonderful house in the woods built by old
Jimmy McQuut, sportsman recluse.
"Toik's Kotoliquy" is a fascinating
tale of a brindle bull terrier who saved his master from financial ruin hy
his ability to fight, and who later
straightemd out the crooked course
of true love. "The Bird Dog" will
appeal to all those interested in this
"embodiment of canine intelligence."
Other articles there are of outdoor
life from Atlantic to Pacific and de-
I artmentu full ot interest to the
sportsmHn hunter and fisherman.
Writing in a Japanese magazine,
Count Shigcnobu Osuma, Prime Min-
is.er ol Japan, Bays some very lorce-
liil things about Japan's relations to
the West.
"lt will be our one ambition at
this time," he writes, "to show the
West what it is slow to believo—
that wc cnn work harmoniously with
great Occidental powers to support
and protect the highest ideals ol civilization, even to the extent ol dying tor them. Not only ln the Far
Kast, but anywhere else that may be
necessary, Japan Is ready to lay
down hcr lite lor the principles that
the foremost nation, will die lor. It
Is to be In line wllh those nations
that Bhe Is nt thll time opposing nnd
lighting whit she believes to he opposed to these principles. . . Japan's relation to thc present conlllct
is aa a defender ot the things tbat
male for higher clvlliznt.oil and a
more permanent peace."
It will bo remembered that when
the Into (lenerul visited Japan In
1907, Count Okuinii warmly received
him, and end used a scheme tor providing medical aid lor tho poor,
which the (lenerul outlined to   him.

Gold in the War
(The World, New York.)
lo. li the Hank of England and the
Imperial Ban* of Germany have continuously increased their holdings of
gold smce the war began until in
t-ucb case their atocits ol the metal
have become the largest ever known
to them. Ihe German bank now
holds 5iu,ouo,ouo more gold than at
the outbreak of the war; tbe British
iau* holds 1158,000,000 more.
lt is easier to explain the gain of
the BritiBh than thut of the German
h.uu. England s foreign trade is
still unbroken, though reduced hy the
war. The Bank of England is having
the benefit of the large weekly shipments of gold from South Africa. It
haB been gaining gold on debt account from the United States in ship-
mints to Ottawa, which are counted
us in its own vaults.
But Germany bas practically been

20th YEAR
CRANBROOK, B.C   December 5, 19H.
No. 49
Everyone now knoWB that the
immediate cause of the efi'.ry
of tbe Britiah Emi ire into the
present war was tbe violation ol the
neutrality of Belgium by the armed
forces ot the German Emperor. The
full importance attached to the preservation ot that ntutrality by British statesmen ol all periods for a
thousand years past can only be rea-
li/.ed by a study uf the history of continental wars in which Qireat Britain
has taken part.
It may be said that most of the
bloodiest and most costly wars wbieli
England has waged Hin-e the Norn an
conquest in 1061) have been (ought to
prevent the domination ol Belgium
and tbe Netherlands by an all-powerful European nition. As tar bac'< as
the reign of Edward I., we find the
BritlBh fleet engaged in a great naval
battle with France at Sluis (1340).
By this victory Flanders was saved
temporarily from complete domination by the French. From this time
up to the end ot the Fifteenth Cen
tury the most important feature ol
the political history of Flanders was
the persiBtent endeavor of the Kings
of France to obtain a preponderating
influ?nce in that country. Any such
endeavor was always strenuously opposed by England.
.From the opening of the Sixteenth
Century, wh'n the power of Fran:c
was on the wane, Flanders fell under
Spanish domination. The Netherlands was lost to tbem following a
rebellion caused by the persecution
of the Iniiiisition, hut by 1580 Antwerp was aga'n in their hands, and
they threatened again to conquer the
Dutch and overrun Holland. Queen
Elizabeth th-rcforo came to the aid
of the Netherlands, nnd sent troopB
against Phillip II., ol Spain. Drake
put an end to the ambitions of
Spain aB the dominating power ot
Europe by his victory over tbe great
Armada In 1.18s. Had he not succeeded in this, the veterans of the
Spanish army, under the Duke ol
Parma might h.ive landed on British
soil and have reduced England to the
position ot a vassal state. Spain wbb
not finally dispossessed o! her Influence In Northern Ellro.ic until 1057,
wben Cromwell's troops, lighting Bide
by side witli thc French ultimately
overthrew the power of Spain,
In the Seventeenth Century France
ngaia became tbe chief source ol danger to Grent Britain, l'nder I,mils
XIV., one ol tho ablest Kings ol
France, Bhe threatened togaln possession ol the Netherlnnds, and thus
dominate Kn;land. William III., ol
England, Prince if, Orange, n.iturally
aided the Dutch against the armies
of France. Indeed Irom 1CS3 to 1815
Kngland was almost continually aiding the Netherlands, which then, ol
course, Included Belgium, againBt
the French.
Tbe great campaign of the. Duke
of Marlborough, from 1704 to 1714,
included in which were thc battles
of Blenheim, HamllUcs, Ondenardc
nnd Malplaipiet, eventually brought
to nn end Ihe efforts of l.ouis XIV.
to gain the Netherlnnds.
His successor, l.ouls XV.. tried
leehly, although wllh occasional successes, to control the late of the
Netherlands, but nlwnys theBe designs were frustrated by England,
The final elTort ot France to con
quer England through control ol the
Netherlands, began in 1798 and did
not finally end until tbe power ol
Napoleon was overthrown nl Water
loo. Napol on's Baying that the possession o' Antwerp meant "a pistol
pointed „t Hie heart af England" is
well known. Al] his last great ef
torts were to gain control of that
port, and his final overthrow was
due to tb ■ Importan e he attached
to lt.
In the light of tlies. historical
facts it is not surprising that the
British Empire is determined to go
on fighting until Belgium Is once
more safely established as a "bufler
Btate." There can be n < lasting peace
or security for the heait ,if th" Empire until nil danger of the domination ot Belgium and Holland, by a
power wh ino ambitions include thc
entire domination of Europe, has
passed away.
Our Premier could tell
a GreatjStory
(Reproduced  from  the  Week.)
In tbe crisis through which tbe
British Empire is now passing, every
loyal subject of King George ueuger-
ljf seeking fur uews, nnd not a few
are chatiug muter the restrictions imposed by a asceesary censorship, Men
who hive the uieuiH und are tOj old
to fight, have gone home simply that
they might he near to the hart of
things, in t mch with the great
forces which today are organizing the
deftnee of the whole Kmpire, and
possibly more than all that they
may be where the flrst n-ws of what
has really transpired may be ob
tained. If any person were to leavt
Victoria tuday, eo direct tn London
spend a week there, interview the
greatest personage ;n Kngland, be
honored with a royal au Hence and
return direct to Victoria, what
story he would have to tell, and
with wbat an eager crowd of listeners would be be surrounded, yet al
though this has been tbe almost inestimable privilege of our Premier,
he haa been slow to proclaim the
fact, and the public knows little of
the story he could tell. Obligation
and discretion impose severe Umita
tiona on the story, but with bi3 invariable kind-iess, Sir Richard McBride has taken The Week into his
confidence, as far a* he felt justified;
and always bearing in mini the re
strictions imposed, aa much of the
story as serves tho public interest
may be told. Sir Richarl's purpose
in going to London was two-fold;
primarily, as a representative of the
Dominion f«overnmcnt tu discuss with
the naval and military authorities
certain measures suggested in the in
terest of Canadian defence and of
Canada's adequate contribution to
the fighting forces of the Empire:
secondly, to intervHv intlentlal fin
ancial magnates with reference to
conditions in British C'oliimhia, and
especially as to its tlnancial needs in
the near future. The latter subject
may he dismissed with the statement
that these interviews were satisfactory. On the former momentous ques
tiois, Sir Richard, in the short space
of five days had repeated and pro
longed interviews at the Admiralty
and    nt   the    War Ofllce,   with   Enrl
when they ought to he on Salisbury
Plaius, getting the most scientific
preparation, and where they would
be in rencb of the front. On his return Sir Richard met Sir Robert
Borden ut Ottawa and reported fully
on his mission. There is little doubt
thit when Parliament meeta in January, a comprehensive measure dealing fully with military and naval
matters will be brought down, and it
la not unreasonable to Buppose that
It will be based largely upon tie information which Sir Richard .obtained while in Londoh. Sir Richard's
last word was once more to emphasize the seriousness of tbe position,
tbe absolute devotion, one might almost way consecration, of the people
at home to the duties imposed by
war, antl the urgent desire that Canada should prove herself wo thy of
her relation to tbe Mother Country
und her proud position in th1 Empire. Sir Richard suid that the keynote uf the whole situation lay in
the parting words uf Earl Kitchener,
"Tbis is war."

John's Ambulance Corps wish to

Kitch-ner, Lord Fisher, Sir John Jel-
licoe, and needless to say, Mr. Win
ston Churchill, First Lord of the Admlrnlty, Sir Edward drey and Mrs
As)|iiith. While the details of those
Interviews are of course private, it Ib
permissible to sny that Sir Richard
was authoriwd to express the determination of the Canadian Oovernment to do its full share in the present crisis, and the object of the in
terview was to ascertain exa?tly the
views of the English authoritie8
the subject. The one thng which impressed Hir Rieha'rd most was the
war. To use his own words, "Eng'
Innd his given herself np to the
hunim-Hs of war. At the n o nent, she
is thinking of nothing else. She rea
Ibe* the literal truth of Earl Kitrh-
encr's words in the House of Lo-ds,
'The British Empire is fighting for
its existence.' Earl Kitchener will
not stop short at nnv army uf one
million men, nor, if the war is pro-
'' nged, at two millions. He already contemjlates the possibility or
Ihree million*." With such a task as
this before them, no wonder th" people at home are w^ous. but it Is
nut th>- serionsnens of pessimism or
despondency, ft [g rather a stoicism
Whteh nothing cnn move anl which
has set itfe f with grim determination to see thi thing through, fn the
'aee of siirh n burden as is Imposed
UPDO the Empire ;in \ ns rests primarily on the Mother Country. |( is
not tu be wondered at that Sir Rirh-
nrd awns, "What is Canada's share""
nor Iti to wondered a( tbat he considers the somewhat wMilous proposal of a Becond Contingent ol 16,000
men with continual reinforcements
tun vague to be entirely satisfactory,
ile would live tu nee the men to he
| drafted almost daily In SinaM numbers and ' sent hume expeditiously,
He would also 11 :e Canada to eay,
"By such and siirh a date, wc will
iruarantee to place so many men tii
England fur service." Whilst not assuming any critical attitude and
while realizing the many difficult lei
with which 'lie Canadian Government
hus 0 contend, Sir Richard undoubtedly nhm»n the views of niany
others, that this IB ft time for adopting new methods, nnd especially for
abandoning regulations whlrh Impose
nnnecssary restrictions on recruit

First Monthly Meeting
of the Cranbrook
last night tbe tirst uf the month
ly meet n_* ot tha Cranhrook Local
Conservatives was held in Clapp's
Hall when ,i very largB attendance of
supporters were present,
Tbe meeting wan ea I d fur eight
o'clock ami it was remarkable to
note tbat rfu large a number was ready tu start the meetiUi; strictly on
time; the chairman was late and so
those present passed a vote of ceu-
sure upon bim with t!'e mltnon tion
that punctuality at future meetings
must he observed. When the president, Mr.' ff. tf. McFarlane. arrived
pome rive mintitas later he received
tbe censure in good part and told
tbe meeting that at all future meetings be would start the ball ro'.hn^
on  time.
Before proceeding with the usual
business he wished tbe secretary to
read a letter tbat had been received
from our member, T. Caven. The
writer, in part, expressed bis regret
at not being able to be present at
this meeting owing to his having to
go to Calgary to be with his mother who is suffering from a serious
The ine.'ting expressed its sympathy at hearing tbe news and were
wishful for a speedy recovery.
The secretary was then called upon to read the minutes of the three
executive meet ngs which have been
held since the new officers were elected. On motion they were adopted as
Arising out of the minutes, Mr.
Hunt asked for information re the
sending of a tt Ingram to o.ir member,
Hon, R, F. Green, and through him
the Imperial Oovernment, re tbe reported letting of a contract for 10,-
((00,000 ties to a firm in Alabama.
The president in explanation of this
read the tlegram that had heen sent
nnd the letter received from Mr.
Green aud now it would hnve to he
laid over until such time as they
receive a message from the Imperial
Thc committee cn Rules and Regulations made their report, in receiv-
whicb several of those present expressed their views favorably for the
adoption of such measures for the
regn'ating of future proceedings; owing, to some details necessary for the
executive to handle the matter will
be brought up at the next monthly
meeting for tin tl adoption. In conjunction with this it is anticipated
that membership cards will be prepared and further adoption of these
will he made at the next meeting.
Mr. Wm. Shad of Hull River then
drew the attention of the meeting to
a petition he bad previous,y given
to Mr. McFarlane and wished to know
what Imd become of it. Mr. McFarlane in explanation of this said that
the matter of the petition really belt; n -ed to the d.strict or central committee, but now that the matter
was approached l*e-e if those present desired they could take It up.
TM petition referred to th" bridge at
Hull River. The residents of that
dlttriet desired that the work be
commenced at once, because in addition to tbe necessity of such a
[bridge if the wurk was commenced
|now it would give work to a considerable 'number of residents, both
of Bull lliver and Wardner, and they
were in need <d sucb wont a* there
was not another thing being done to
belli relieve the stress of the times
that now existed.
By a unanimous vote thc membera
ondorsod tho purposes of the pet!
tion and each member added his
nume to the roll, thus adding In
toto Home extra !I0 or more to the
already large number of signatures.
The meeting ordered the secretary
to aetid a letter of congratulation to
the Port try Aasoclation 'or the excellent showing made at the exhibition held today. Mr. MrKm IiimmukI
in speaking to tbls that there were
some 450 exhibits on the ground and
tbe quality of tbem ho fur nn he could
judge was excellent, "To uro the
judge's words "The exhibit wan better than any two he had ever Roen in
this province outside the coasi cities, mid tbey were a credit In the
A letter ul approval was also ordered tti be sent to tbe Farmers' in
stitute for the attempt they are making to establish a public market in
the city.
Dr. Rutledge in answer to a call
for a few remarks gave a very instructive address on the membership
of the association and also on tbe
future welfare of the party. The
doctor briefly reviewed some of the
work of the Dominion Gove n nent
and drew attention to so.nc of tho
bills that had been passed in the
Home only to he defeated by a Liberal Senate. If tho future welfare o!
the country ia to be considered this
Senate has got to be altered so that
when progie sive measures were
brought hefore them the united ro-
quests of the representatives would
be better considered.
Mr. J, P, Fin'i then addressed the
meeting ami explained the Federal
riding and its relative construction
from the local bodies, putting forth
several suggestions for tbe Simplification of ita working and removing
the present cumbersome method ot
electing such a large body wheu a few
would be ample.
Other members present wbo look
part  in   the   meeting  were  Messrs.  T.
T. McVittie, J, Hall,   ira   Manning,
W, Noble, p, DeVere Hunt, F, Swain,
and  S,  MaedoUild.
Arising out of some ol the remarks
made by Mr. Fin; re the numerous
enquiries for land lu this district as
secretary of the Board of Trnde and
coming, many of them from tb-
prairies provinces, Mr. S. Macdonald
drew thi attention of tbe meeting to
a mistake made last May in assuming that 40 acres was euougu for a
farmer to make a living, Ho suggested that it was not possible and
further suggested that this meeting
follow up tbi' suggestion made by
Mr. Fint and send in a petition to
the government asking them to open
up the land next May for homesteads to hona-tide settlers, but that
instead Oi tbem bein.: 40 acre lotB for
them to be 160 acres which would
wo:Id give tbe farmer excellent room
to place thereon a Httle stock and
grow what  timothy he could.
A motion was then made by Mr. J.
P. Fin'i and seconded by Mr. E. H.
Mcphee that such a petition be
drawn up and forwarded through the
rikjht channels necessary to ita final
success. A committee was then appointed  to dra't such uetition.
The  meeting adjourned at 10.30.

New Commander Idol
of the_Fleet
When England entered the wnr
against Cermany there wiih a general
reeling that the British Admiralty
Board flhould have the hcncllt of tbe
counsel <.[ John Arhuthnot Fisher,
Baron Fisher of KilVeritODfl, Admiral of thc Fleet at the time ot his retirement in 1911. That consummation has now been brought about hy

the Admiralty to succeed Admiral
1'rlnce l.ouls nf Hnttenhcrg, whose
resignation wns caiucd by popular
clamor aroused by the fact that he
is of Autttrlnn birth nnd parentage,
though a llrltlsh subject by naturalization. Thnt thore should bo a call
for Lord Fisher's serviced nt this crl
sis In the nflalrs of Groat Britain Is
natural. More than to any otber one
one mnn, tbe present ofllcloncy of the
British Navy Is due to him. Ile
planned thc ships, ho trained the ofllcers, ho Inspired thc strategy which
In now holding command of the North
Hen. Bvon more, Rnglmul for years
looked to blm to win n great naval
victory some duy ngnltist a foe, pro-
Niimnlily (iermany, wblch should
crown him a second Nelson.
For a man who has done So much
ho Is curiously unknown to hln fol
low countrymen. Entering the navy
at 13, he did good service like many
another officer, but attracted attention almost exclusively from his superiors. His great opportunity did
not come until he was over 60. Then
came a day when there was oilered to
him the highest prize of a sailor's
ambition in time of peace—the position di First Sea Lord.
But even that honor he would only
take on terms. He carried in biH
brain a full scheme of reorganization. He believed the train.ng and
the distribution of the navy to be
perilously out of date. He had
watched the change from wooden
walls to iron citadels packed with
tremendous and exquisite machinery.
Yet there had been no fundamental
change since Nelson's tine in the
method of training officers for their
There had been a revolution in
England's political relations, and it
was clear to him that the struggle of
life nnd death in the future would
be fought in tbe North Bea and no
other where. Yet England's fleets
were still organized as though the
Mediterranean would he, ns in the
eighteenth century, the chief scene of
crisis. British ships were stationed
anywhere but where they would probably have to fight.
Sir John Fisher—as he. wnB then,
his creation as Baron Fisher of Kil-
verstone dates from 1909—clearly
stated his Intentions. They were approved. He went into the Admiralty
to carry them out. His activities
were revolutionary though constructive. He was denounced for the sheer
daring and resolution of the changes
he introduced. But he was commissioned from the outset to effect them.
That was what he wns there for. To
the foreign mind he appeared like
nothing so much as an incarnated
torpedo waiting for its war bead to
be fixed on it.
And what did he accomplish? At
Osborne he trained the officers of today to bandit' the grim mnchines
which have superseded forever the old
vision of masts and sails. He vastly
increased efficiency while reducing expense. He struck one of the estimates every penny which did not
>ield fighting value. He mercilessly
scrapped Bcores of weak vessels that
could neitbor attacit nor run. He
transferred the men to real fighting
ships. He created with tbe inspiration of nothing Icbb tban genius tbe
system of nucleus crews, by which every ship in the reserve can be mobilized for war in a few hours. Abo.-e
all, bc swung tbe whole lleet, us it
were, clean round to face thc tasks
of tbe future.
He recognized that in the twentieth
century as iu the seventeenth, the
British Empire will be saved or lost
not in the Mediterranean hut in the
North Bea. Quietly he maued Brit-
i ish strength In the narrow seal until, in Admiral Muhnn's words, "8C j
per cent, df the Br.tish battleship
j strength wus concentrated in or near
home waters."
When Ftehsr was appointed First
Sea Lord in vm. a Unionist Government wns in power, with Lord
Hnlhornn ns First Lord of the Admiralty. Within two months Fish
er's inllueuce wns evidenced by Lord
Bclborne's Issue of a memorandum
and circular Utter dealing In drastic
fashion with tbe distribution snd
mobilisation of thc lleet. Dilating
arrangements were cancelled and the
effective wnr licet divided into two,
one In commission at sea nod the
other In commission  In reserve.
Only n month later Fisher mnde
hh next departure which wiih of u
kind more nnl ciliated to attract general attention He then showed that
his practical, nn aPart from bis st-a-
teglC, policy was to scrap every naval vessel Hint wai not abvolntily
up-to-date. In tbo first threo months
of IW, do fi wer thnn 120 of Httch
vessoin were removed from thc porta
to mooring Hfatlottfl round the roust
as obsolete.
All his life he had been a bard
worker and be waa untiring at tbe
Admiralty. He was constantly i tanning and preparing for tbe war
which has now como. His knowledge
of naval affairs was all embracing.
He knew where each ship was and
all about it, whether the commander
was a good officer, whether he drank,
whether he wns a fop, whether he was
liked by his crew—in fact everything
about him.
"Confound him," said an officer,
who served under him in thc West
Indies, "I believe be could tell you
the exact number (,f cocktails I drink!
every time I go ashore."
To this encyclopaedic Vnnvledge is
joined tho Vacuity of prompt action
and utter fearlessness. He proved hts
ccurage over nnd over again in tbe
Crimean war, the Chinn war of 1859-
60 and the tombardment of Alexandria.
Lord Fisher has heen described aB
the one man in the British navy wbo
nlwnys hold;? his tongue. In a career of over fcrty years he hns never snoken or written a wo"d for
publication; he has never been guilty
of the slightest indiscretion. Tn these
fiuys of garrulous generals nnd argumentative ndmirnls, thnt Ib a record
worth hiving.
This strong, Bilcnt man has n horror of notoriety. This trait in his
character madn it Impossible for him
'o get a'ong amicably with Lord
Charles Beresford when the latter
was In command of the Mediterranean fleet some yearB ngo. Lord
Charles Is a fine sailor,, but FiBher regarded him as n leaky vessel, Incurably fond of talking when he ought to
bold his tongue.
As on^ or his fellow officers hns remarked, Lord Fi trr rose "by dint
dl sheer brain power, continuity of
■uirpose, clear sigbtedness end conspicuous ability to the position he
now holds." The son of an obscure
mnn, he haa attnined the highest
rank in the servlci, where aristocratic  Influence counts for much.
The strangest thing about this man
wbo hears upon his shoulders much
of the weight of the British Empire
is that be is not an Englishman at
all in the strict sense of the word.
HIb father was a captain In thc Seventy-eighth Highlanders, who settled
<u Ceylon, nnd his mother was a
Singhalese woman ot . high rank.,
Thus he has a Btraln of Oriental
Mood In his veins.
It shows very Blightly in hia face;
<nly persons who have lived In thc
cast nre able to detect it. In countenance Admiral Fisher ihOWB thc
characteristics of a bit hlog, and be
has that simple, bluff, hearty manner which is associated with the typical   John Bull.
Sometimes his subordinates and
forel^n diplomatists with whom ho
has had to do have been deceived by
thla meaner into thinking him an innocent, guileless sailormnii with plenty of pluck but m bruins, ln every
case tbey discovered too lute thnt a
toUCh of Oriental subtlety wai grafted on Anglo-Saxon dVrectnsee and
Iron will and that Fisher hud been
playing them  witb  Asiatic craft,

twice. HiB tulk is full of tbe unexpected, yet revealing phrases which
light up a subject with Hashes of conversational lightning. He ia as irresistible in anecdote as in energy,
uuce, when asaed what was hiB favorite text, he replied instantly, "And

His motto throughout his career
bas been that "tbe frontiers of England are the coasts of the enemy."—
