Gentlemen,—I have pleasure in submitting for your consideration progress report of work carried out by
the City Engineer's Department during tbe month ending October 31st,
Water Debenture Account
During the month of October ninety-seven houses were connected up to
the new Bteel pipe system, there being fifteen double and sixty-seven sin
glo connections. In the gravel portion whleh wus done, Hanson avenue, tho services which had given
trouble in former yenrs, on account
of freezing up, wero lowered to the
property line and ahoii'd any service
freeze up hereafter the cost of thawing snme will be a charge to he entirely torne by the Individual property owner, On Hanson avenue the total   excavation amounted    to    nine
hundred and eighty-nine (989) lineal
feet, eight feet deep and tbe average
cost of excavation and backfilling
was 50.6 cents per lineal foot, al-
although some of the work) cost aB
low as thirty-five centB and the highest sixty-live cents pei' foot.
On French and Dewar avenues only
seventeen services were lowered into
the property, line, all the others being of a sufficient depth aB to warrant their being\ only connected up to
the new main.
During the month eight hydrants
were taken off the old system und
turned over, to the contractor for
placing on the new system.
On October 31st 250 feet of backfill
was made with team and scraper and
two men five hours each and one man
three hours at a coBt of $0.75
against a cost of $15.00 for the same
amount of work by hand labor,
showing n saving of $8.25. This
method of backfilling is only the
more economical, however, where a
large amount of work can be done at
one time.
Sewerage Department.
Trays over primary niters   at   the
disposal works were cleaned oft twice
during   the    month and works   were
generally maintained.

10th, the following resolution was
passed and instructions issued to the
Chief of Police to give the occupants
of the restricted district notice and
to see that tbe order ,o( the Commission is properly carried out.

Locals in Session
The Conservative Association'executive met in Atchison's Hall Thursday evening when several matters of
importance were placed on the table
for their consideration. The .meeting
was culled to order by the president,
W. R. MacFarlane, and others present were Vice-President J. B. Hall,
Sec.-Treasurer JS. H. McPhee and
Messrs. J. P. Finn, W. F. Attridgc,
Lister Clapp, Dr. F. W. Green, Dr.
Rutledgefund Ira R. Manning,
On motion Sir R. L. Borden, Sir
Richard McBride and Thos. Caven,
M. P. P., were elected honorary presidents of the association.
A restitution was placed hefore the
members >and carried "that a vote df
thankB be tendered Hon. R. F.'Green
for the interest he haB taken .in' thc
district and the able manner in which
he has represented, us tin thc Dominion parliament,"
The meeting unanimously placed on
record that ,they were pleased to endorse the motion introduced by oiir
Hon. member Thos. Caven at the
general meeting held in Matheson
Hall on November Cth when he moved | a vote of' confidence in our rond
superintendent, Mr. John Reid.
Mr. Belment was Invited to take
charge, and act as chairman of the
committee _ appointed to advise on the
well-being of the voters' list. It was
recognized that in the past Mr. Bel-
mi-nt has done tsome very useful work
along these Lines, and it was , absolutely necessary to hnve someone fully acquainted witb the details to appear at the'Court of Revision ion the
16th of December. Other ' members of
this committee are' Messrs. Fink
Clapp, Steward, Rutledge and Rax
It was resolved that! a general
meeting of the association be held in
Clapp's ^all the first Friday of each
month. In taking this steo towards
further acquainting each other with
tbe aims and objects of the association and,also with the possible and
probable schemes for the welfare of
the people the Conservative party
would be i very much stronger and the
members would.be better welded together in advancing \the interests of
the party.
There being quite a surplus in the
bank to the association's credit the
executive felt they could out of such
surplus donate apart 4? the. same to
the Sunshine Society, Consequently
a cheque!will be made out for $25.00
and forwarded to the president of the)
society Mrs. (Dr.) King.
The association extended their best
thanks for the offer of Mr. Lester
Clapp to use his hall for their meetings free, it being understood, however ii.it the association furnish and
pay tor the light and fuel,used.
The executive also considered many
other items of business.
Meet'ng adjourned until November
business on a reasonable basis.
The department points out that
while it would be difficult to directly interfere with such practices, it is
desirable for Canadians to discourage hostile activity,of this kind by
assuring themselves ot the standing
of the firms with which tliey transact  business.
A proclamation is issued today setting out the penalties for trading
witb an enemy. On nummary j conviction the pennlty Is $2,000 or twelve
months' imprisonment. On conviction or indictment thc penalty is five
years or a fine of $5,000.
Canada Rich in Nickel
Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 6.—In view of
thc importance of nickel in the armor-plate industry, the following from
"Conservation," dealing with the
Canadian output, is of particular interest:
"The importance of Canada's nickel mining Industry muy bo more fully realized when it is considered that
Canada produces over 80 per cent, ol
the world's output of nickel.
"Iu 1913 the Onnadian Copper com-
I'i'iiv'H smelter at Copper Cliff, in the
Sudbury district, treated 665,000 tons
ol ore, containing over 44,000,000
pound! of nickel, or about 90 per
cent, of tho total output of Canada.
Tbo nickel was recovered as matte
and shipped to the United States for
"Pure nickel is employed ln small
amounts for a numbor of purposes,
becauso of Its strength nnd durability and its white color, which resists
Chief Use in Alloys.
"Though tho importance of pure
nickel is likely to grow, tho chief
uso of the metal is In thc production
of nlloys, particularly nickel steel, in
which thc greater part of the nickel
now roflned ls employed.
"Bteel containing 2 1-2 to 3 1-2 per
cent, of nlckol has certain of its
properties grcntly Improved, so that
for many purposes It is replacing ordinary structural steel. Its value for
urmor-plate has long boon known and
the rivalry of the great maritime nations In the building of dreadnoughts is ono of the onuses for tho
recent Increased demand for nickel.
"In 1913 Cnnada exported 48,341,-
307 pounds of nickel IB ore or matte
to the United fltates and 4,826,783
pounds to the United Kingdom."
Scheme to Keep Trade
Ottawa—Evidence has reached the
Department of Trade and Commerce
to the effect that German shipping
and forwarding agents, to compensate themselves for cessation of business, have transferred their offices to
London and points in Canada. In
this way they are attempting to retain their business connections in
competition with British and other
firms until peace enables them to reestablish themselves in Germany. In
order to do this they offer rates that
preclude   British   firms   from    doing

Kaiser Has a Narrow
London, Nov. 10.—A correspondent;
of the Times in northern France gives
further details of Emperor William's
escape from bombs at Thielt, Belgium.
"For five days," says the correspondent, "Emperor William was present at the operation on the Nieu-
port-Ypres (line. Last Sunday the
emperor with some of his aideB arrived by motor car at Thielt, where
apartments had been reserved for
him at thc hotel, aud where dinner
was waiting.
"The emperor's personal baggage
already had been deposited in the
bedroom In which ho waB to spend
the ni(.,ht. The emperor, iu his hurry, did not dress for dinner and Immediately after dining, instead of retiring to his room, hurriedly left the
tavorn witb two aides and motored
to the other end of the town i where
other rooms were engaged.
"Twenty minutes later sii bombs
fell I on the hotel-and the1 emperor's
baggage and his room was completely destroyed. Two of the aides who
had remained at the hotel were killed and1 their motor car, which was
waiting in the yard, was wrecked."

Indian Troops in Winter
(Manchester Guardian.)
How wlll the Indian troops stand
the continental winter? The answer
bhOUld not be in doubt. The martial
races of India come mostly from rt>-
gions which have a very cold winter,
some from highlands where thc prevailing temperature for four or five
months of the year is much lower
than thc average winter temperature
of Frnncc and Belgium.
Spy Arrested in East
Ottawa, Out., Nov. 10.—Caught
with a complete wireless outfit in his
possession, Arthur Lauf, lately employed us an interpreter of the department of immigration at Halifax,
Iiub been arrested, and iB held as a
suspected spy. Lauf hus been under
suspicion for some time, and was
apprehended soon after the war broke
out, but was released on the production of naturalization papers.
Further suspicions were aroused
recently, and on him being arrested
wireless equipment waB found in his
room. He was, of course, immediately dismissed from the service, and
is now hold as a prisoner of war, on
thc churge of being a spy.
Germans Pay Tribute
to Indians
Copenhagen—The Berlin Lokal An-
zeiger pays tribute to the \ gallantry
Ol the Indian troops in standing
against tbe heavy firing'of the German artj.lcry,
"One Can acknowledge the courage
and fighting lability of the Indian
Ghurkas," it says, "but we must despise their methods of fighting. Their
sudden onslaught on the German soldiers was a lively reminder of the
fighting methods of the tiger in the
Indian jungle*.
Germany's Losses to
Date Are Heavy
London, Nov. G.—Hllare Belloc,
writing to the London Daily Mail,
estimates thc German loss?s to date
at 1,750,000 men.
"I know," he writes, "that this
figure looks startlingly large, but the
various steps liy which it ia arrived
at are not, I think1, open to criti-
flourishing , cism. It would he easy, by a little
manipulation ol the figures, to make
out very much larger totals. I have
attempted, on the contrary, to fli
the lowest conceivable minimum."

The strict German losses in the

"These losses," he writes, "have,

Will BuildJNew Mill
Tobacco Plains is to have the larg-
■st saw mill plant in the Kootenays,
nvestmcut $150,000, to be thoroughly modern throughout. About six
wn' s ago the Eureka Lumber Com-
uny's mill burnt down, and construction on the new mill has already started  and between 2fi0 and 300
11 employed. The new mill wlll be
of double size, to consist of two
baud  saws  and a gang  saw,   with    a
tal capacity of 300,000 feet for
twenty hours. Th' main building will
be G0xl7ti feet, of the very^ latest design, and will  be equipped  with   the
st modern saw mill mach'nery nnd
safety appliances the market affords.
The  new  mill  will be the   biggest
ist Tobacco Plains ever got, The
following will give some idea of the
amount of the new plant, a lath mill
90x32 feet, a sorting shed 32 feet wide
und 250 fret long, machine shop 96x32
feet, power house 48x80 feet, a Bteel
burner Lined with brick, 34 feet in diameter and 100 (eet in height, equipped with a 12-foot screen. The stack
tbe power house will ,,e 7 feet in
diameter and 170 feet high. The machine shops win be equipped with a
planer, lathe drills, etc., for the
handling of heavy repairs, and will
alFo have a two-forge blacksmith outfit. Thelpower house will he equipped with a 900 horse power engine with
a battery of boilers of 150 horse pow-
each. A fine electric flight plant
will furnish power for the leieetrlc appliances which will be UBed in the
mill. The great Northern engineer
has been nn the ground and Burveyed Kor'a spur from the industry track
to the timber docks of the new mill.
This will be constructed right1 away.
und will facilitate the construction of
thc mill. The new plant will have
an entire new yard system,, whereby
thc lumber will be conveyed from the
mill by motor trucks, automatically
loaded, electric stackers will be used
in piling lumber, thereby dottoling
the piling capacity, of the yards.
Nothing but local labor will be employed as far ns practical and possible, no foreigners need apply. It Is
further estimated that. Including ell
thc operations of the big concern,
employment will be given to nearly
1000 men (all white men) during the
coming year. Elko is the northern
gateway to Tobacco Plains.
Names and Formation of
Canada's First Contingent
Sailed from Quebec September 30th, at 5 p.m., 1914
Fortress in London
London, Nov. 7.—The Standard
says that about a month a^o inspec
t on waB made of certain buildings
in a London district owned by a foreign firm ostensibly as a factory. A
military expert described them
■nothing more or less than terrifically strong fortifications, which dominate some of the vital points in London."
This factory is situated near Woolwich, and commiiuds several miles of
the River ThamcB, powder and ammunition reserves at Purfleet, and a
large part of the Woolwich arsenal.
All the buildings are of reinforced
concrete of a Btrength and thickness
altogether out of proportitn to the
nature of the work carried on in the
factory. Every floor is of exceptionally thick concrete, and the tlat roofs
of certain buildings are of the same
material, also of unnecessary thickness ttnd strength so far as n peaceful business Ib concerned.
From the roofs, which are Btrong-
ly supported, an uninterrupted view-
is obtained of some of the most important pointB in London. Other significant features arc the fact that
certain of the buildings could be used
as aeroplane sheds, whilst every facility is' offered for the landing and
mooring of airships, and a powerful
electricsl plant on the premises
would render the fitting up of wire-
bss telegraphic apparatus nn easy
One of our readers received a letter from one of Cranbrook's first
contingent, stationed at the time of
writing on Salisbury Plains, England. In this he gives a detailed list

Death of Col. Burland
The very sudden death of Col. Jeffrey H. Burland, in London, Kngland,
on Oct. 9th, removed one of Canada's
greatest philanthropists und nn ardent advocate of the conservation of
ber resources. When thc Commission
of Conservation decided to investigate thc question of housing and
town-planning legislation and to prepare a model draught bill respecting
these very important questions, Col.
Uurland was invited to accept the
chairmanship of the special committee appointed for the purpose. To
his activity and enthusiasm in the
work much of the success of tbe
movement in its initial states may
be attributed. Collaborating in the
preparation of the draft town-planning measure submitted at the late
International Town-planning Conference, his experience in charitable and
philanthropic work in his home city
of Montreal was of untold value.
Of a Kindly and sympathetic nutiire
Col. Uurland will long be remembered for bis association with every
movement for the public good.
Among those receiving his special attention were the Society for the Prevention of Tuberculosis, the Boy
Scouts, better homes for working-
men, and that which of late has demanded nnd is receiving bo much of
the world's sympathy, thc Red Cross
Society, ln thc interests of which
Col. Burland was in Dnglaod at the
tune of his death. Col. Burland's
death will he greatly regretted by his
associates of ^the Commission of Conservation nnd hy nil with whom ho

Paris, Nov, 7.—French airmen hive
learned by experience to give hs wide
ii berth ns possible to the new derma n anti-aircraft gun. This is a
most formidable weapon, ami it is
common talk among airmen that to

at i..iniu feet lH as good as having one
foot In the grave. Their lire is deadly between 4,(100 and C.000 fret—tlrst,
on account of the incendiary shells;
and, aeeond, because of tbe enormous
force of the explosion, which displaces the air to nn cxt.nt sufficient to

It   is suggested that Cranbrook  is
well    adapted    wv    a   concentration
camp for tbe internment of prisoners |
of    war.     The ports id entry   Kings-'
gate, Gateway, Kykerts, Waneta and
other ports are constantly   rejecting
German   and   other   enemies   of the'
Empire   from   Canada,   Thc   concen-,

as full to overflowing,   Cranbrook is 1

Speaking on this subject of aliens
it is worth noting that whilst British subjects are lro'.ting in vain for
work pro-Germans and a'iens are
kept in constant employment by some
great corporations, and it is claimed
that many with anti-patriotic feelings who are in authority refuse to
employ those of British descent and
that thousands of aliens, who pay no
taxes and send their earnings rpl-oad,
are In luxury whilst our own people
are hungry.
It is a well known fact that great
number of aliens residing in Canada
who arc receiving constant support
from tbi? country contribute nit one
cent to Dominion nor Provincial
treasuries. The poll tax having been
annulled the Government receives no
income from thousands or aliens who
pay no taxes. Would it not be a
good idea worthy of the attention of
the Government, to re-impose the
poll tax of $3 per bead on British
subjects, who would bc more than
glad to pay it, provided a tax of
$20 per head was imposed on aliens,
who should be made to pay It or get
(>ut of the country where their presence is not desirable and so give a
chance for patriotic British subjects
to earn a living.
The United Stntes imposes a hrta'd
tax of $4 on those entering their
country; on the other band Canada
imposes no tax. Why should this be

The processor of a Yorkshire college
rectn.l y returning to England after
seven weeks' detention as a prisoner
In (Jermany, asked Bpeclal permission
to give the following message to
the congregation of the church which
Ue attended:
He bad been in Germany foi seven weeks as a prisoner on parole and
h.id only just got home, and with
all the earnestness at his command
he felt he must tell them that unless
every man, young, old, weak or
strong, did what he could the British were going to he blotted out. He
had no quarrel with the German people; he admired tbem, and they haii
been very kind to him. but the people in Germany were all uf one mind.
The aim of every man In Germany
was to reach Paris nrst—and they
meant to do it—und then to go on
to London. "For God's sake," said
Dr. Pope, "don't let the people of
this country think that it is an easy-
job to prevent it. Don't let tbem
think that because the Germans are
now beint' pmhed back forty 0r fifty
miles, it is an easy job that remains, because it is not." They
could not all go to the front, but
they could all do something for home
defence. Let tbem put themselves in
the hands of the Government, and
tell the Government to use them for
what they were worth.
"You see me," said the speaker. "I
am nothing, t am old, little and
weak, but the Government can have
mn for what I am worth; ? they can
use my life for what it is worth. If
we do not offer our lives it is certain national death.'' Dr. Pope repeated that the rulers of Germany
meant to blot out thc British, and
he asked the peoplo of this country
to remember that the whole German
nation was a nation of trained men
and soldiers. "Now,"' said Dr. Pope,
"I want a word with the women.
You mothers and sisters and wives,
lf yonr men want to go to the
front, for God's sake don't bold
them back. We cannot be victorious
unless every one of you, men and
women, do what you can."

Letters to the Editor
Cranbrook, Nov. 12.
Editor of the Prospector:
Sir,—Discussion is hardly profita'.t.e
in itself, as your correspondent
"Protestant" suggests, unless it Ib
carried on with due regard to truth
and consistency. I waa shown « paper not long ago, which except for a
few paragraphs whipping up subscriptions /which seemed to be in arrears) appeared to he exclusively devoted to abuse of my religion. The
style of argument employed so much
resembles that adopted by "Protestant" that I must suspect hia .being
guided by some such handbook. Here
were fallacious deductions- from statistics, extracts and quotations, without tbeir context, from books and
speeches. All this collected from this
or that country and from this and
that age in history. Combined with
this delectable copy was a rehash of
what one might call the Btock scores
against Catholics—the forbidding of
the Bible, the permission to tell
lies, the payment for absolution, and
what not other timeworn and absurd
There.is something eminently distasteful in the dragging of sacred
matters into the arena Jf campaign
purposes, and if I do not comment on
the taste or sincerity of these methods, i it is because none is needed.
Your correspondent could as easily
ns I, inform himself what the Church
teaches, and bo avoid ridiculous mis-
takes. He would like to have it Inferred that the Church assails the
civil law of marriage, and to revive
all the bluster of passing Acts o*
Parliament. But he has not followed current events not to know that
this phase of folly has passed into
Limbo. There are Protestants who
like ourselves do not recognise (sac-
ramentally) the remarriage of divorced persons. How I wonder what
would bc the form of such an act
that would compel thom to do so.
It Is not the priest that broke up
the home of the Catholic who married in'disobedience to the law of tho
Church any more than the lawyer
who might have poinded out a flaw
fn the lease. All that the priest
could possibly do would bo to Indicate to these persons how thoy
thoy might olt-iin tho bloa-
slng of tho Church on their trar-
rlugc, hy going through what thoy
had fulled to do in tho first case.
Although yonr correspondent ts discreetly silent on tin* point, It In a
fair assumption thnt tbls simple
course was followed. Such hardships
are fortunately rare and occur of
course not from the observance but
from    the breach of tho regulations
complained Ol. Thoy aro Inevitallly
persons returning to their religion
from a wny of life tbey have always
known to bo wrong. It. Is the spur
Of their conscience that interrupts
their supposed security.
The civil laws uf most countries
uuw embody in their codes the principal regulations regarding the presence of witnesses, registration, etc.,
ou which the Church has from time
immemorial insisted, but of course
the Ne Temere Decree covers as well
thoBe countries not so enlightened.
Every Catholic knows tha''-the priest
is only a witness in the nlirriage rite
and to hint that he can dissolve a
marriage is on a level with other ridiculous assumptions.
If people are so .ignorant I suppose
one maj^ pardon their making charges
they think proper to make under the
mistaken circumstr-nces. But what I
cannot understand is this almost
German attitude of cocVstire superiority, not to say into'erablc Impertinent. Why should not th» Church
say when she thinks people properly
married. Your correspondent allows
himself apparently thn privilege. He
knows that Catholics desire separate
schools in order thnt their children
may be ta'ight religion, and almost
every word &e writes makes it more
apparent bow essential it is children
should not(be exposed jto'on organized corruption , of what their parents
venerate. And those are matters in
which 'the hulk of Protestants T believe Bhare the same view as^I do.
I have not the'patience to pursm
all your correspondent's assertions to
the humorous conclusion they deserve. For instance he appeared to
be much mixed about the Dotiay Bible. Why if forbidden is it published, why if its circulation is viewed
with hatred by Rome is the publication not stopped by Home? He does
not show a very sympathetic attitude
to literature if he considers a boik
"locked up in the Latin tongue."
And he must admit It might have
been loft locked up in the original
Hebrew nnd Greek.
Now if I were to pursue tbo system of argument your correspondent
employs, I should have'to Iny at his
charge whatever I consider subversive to public morals (and this is no
Hpht burden) in "Protestant" Crnn
brook for Instance, tbe obscenities of
Dean Swift, and other authors. I
might ask, with thc Bishop of Uganda, whether a clergyman may repeat
the creed to bis congregation claiming at the samo time the right to
disbelieve it himself, and in short to
echo the Bishop's enquiry "What
then does the Protestant Church
stand for?"—a question to which (like
tbe riddle in Alice in Wonderland
there appears to bo no answer.
Catholics can excuse in large measure the attacks made by Protestants
who are led on hy thoir own great
uncertainties. We rfBiect tho honest
doubts of High, Low, Brond, and
other subdivisions of the great body
they are composed of. We do not
sneer at their seem'n; inconsistencies
or mock their admitted doubts.
These violent attacks often illumine
minds that do not, soo clearly but
are open to .conviction hy thoir very
Distribute the Bible by nil means.
The copy offered to mo was strictly
C. 0. D. Bolfove me tho Bonny vor-
slon Is on tho market, quite cheap In
English, but bettor st 1< study its
contents, and hour not false witness
against thy neighbour. A philosopher remarks "A groat many people
think that thoy are Christians. This
is ridiculous In thom, for they have
no genius for lt." And this, T am
afrnld, is the conclusion T have to
draw from "Protestant's" Vtttitudo In
thoso matters.

Tbe Editor "Prospector,"
Dear Hir,—In all the correspondence
that hus appeared in your co.umus
as the result of what two reverend
gentlemen are reported to have suid
ut a meeting of Orange ladies on Oct.
ibth, it seems to me that the real
danger of ecclesiastical domination
has not been sufficiently emphasized.
The writer is not connected with any
church, chapel, political, fraternal,
or psuedo religious order, either directly or indirectly, and is not in the
least interested in defending any alleged or actual statements made by
nny reverend or irreverent gentlemen,
but when I read the statement of "A
Catholic" that the only people who
have been inconvenienced by the Ne
Temere ruling are a few Catholics, I
am amazed, first at the statement itself, and then at the easy complacency with which it is made.
The real lessen to be learned from
[his statement and from the attitude
of the Roman Church on this question is thit this church assumes the
authority of saylng^when a. marriage
is legal or not, thus arrogating to itself superiority over the civil law.
This is an insolent and arrogant
assumption, and in it, and in the self
constitutad authority that lies behind it, is to be found the real menace to the liberties bo dearly bought
by our fathers. What needs to be
emphasized in a discussion of this
kind by those who care anything at
all for those liberties Ib not the moot
point whether illegitimacy iB more
frequent in Catholic or Protestant
countries, but the fact that marriage
nnd the obligations df marriages are
distinctly civil and not ireligiouB mat-
tors, and that it is presumption on
the part of any priest, Protestant or
Catholic, to come between the contracting parties with his Aye or Nay.
It ls astonishing how easily,this fact
is lost sight of through apathy and
indifference to a fundamental liberty
of democracy and it Ib only because
it is so lost sipht of .that the rulings
of any church on this question have
been able to gather even the appearance of authority.
As between local Catholics and local Protestants, there seems to the
writer b»S little to choose, and he
would hesitate to hurt the feelings of
either whore their religious convictions are concerned, that is, where
they may be said to have any. As
between Protestantism nnd Catholicism as a governing force in society,
there is, however, a great deal to
choose, as anyone can witness who
has. lived, as the writer has done, under both. The simple fact Is that
whero the Roman Church lulls undisputed sway, the great mass or the
people are appallngly Ignorant, for
the rule of their church li that their
thinking is to be done for thom.,
Against this abrogation of <the freedom of the individual to think nnd
act for himself or herself, the friends
of real democracy have always had
to wage war, and will have to con-,
tlnue to do'until the poet's dream is
realized, and
"A ldftier race,
Thin e'er the world hath Been shall
Witli (lame of freedom in their souls,
and Ih'ht 0f KNOWLEDGE in
their eyes,"
The Romnn church is not anx'ous far
lhe dawn of thnt day, and tho Pro-
teutant church cn aro doing little to
help It nlong.
With congratulations, Mr. Rdltor,
on your courage In opening .your columns for tho discussion of so'Important ft topic.

The Gigantic Task of
Tho task of the war office today is
one ot uuparalellod magnitude writes
thc military corroapondent ol the
London Times.
, ln every other state waging war at
this moment thc chief and almost the
only duty of the military administration ia to maintain the armleH in
lh; field by a steady Ilow ot trained
men and or war material accumulated in advance during long years of
peace. Our war olllce has not only
to maintain our forces iu the Held
at homo aud abroad, bnt at the
same time to create new armies
mnny times larger than the army
which we possessed before the war
broke out.
No compurison whatsoever can be
instituted between those widely dil-
[ering tasks. We can improvise a
mob to light another mot), snd could
do so at once, but to light (rmles
we need armies, und armies can no
more le Improvised than lleotB. We
ure working very bard and doing all
we can, but improvisation is improvisation, and when wc do not build
Borne existing cadre, but try to construct buttalions, batteries and
squadrons ab ovo, then we essny
hard task, and a world of chaos and
confusion intervenes between the enlistment of the recruit and thc completion ol tho finished articles.
Wc have a great work hcloro ua,
and we are justly proud ol the tine
answer ot the country to the call
for recruits, but no glittering passages in perfervld orations must Induce us to believe that we possess
army corps or armies when we only
possess men. It Ib with the troops
that we bave formed in peace that
we must fight for many months to
come, and we can only begin to
think of placing our improvised
troops in the field when long months
have elapsed, or when the enemy's
troops, worn down by fighting and
by hardships, no longer present the
efficiency which belonged to them in
the first blush of the war.
The trained troops which we possess and can immediately employ in
Europe amount to some eight divisions of infantry and two of cavalry,
besides such divisions as India can
spare ub. These amount in all
roughly to a quarter of a million
men, and tbey might be strengthened
by reaerve brigadea made up of extra reserve battalions. The special
reserve, the surplus army reserve,
the reserve regiments of cavalry and
certain other resources Bhould enable
us to maintain this quarter of a million men or more in the field continuously and our first duty is tb keep
the ranks of these troopB full, and
to put aside all secondary considerations for the purpose of doing so.
Until more time has elapsed or until
the quality of the enemy's troops
has deteriorated, we ought not to
count upon the services of any other
troops in the line of battle.
When more time has elapsed we
come to what we may term our reserve field army, made up of the
territorial divisions and mounted brigades at home, of the Dominion and
other contingents somewhat similarly trained, and of the Ulster volunteers. Some of these troops will be
ready sooner than others, and, generally apcaklng, they will provide a
ateady flow of reinforcements at the
Brat of war from December next onward. r
Wc have found the first half a million men for the new army and
we have power to take the second
halt million when we can get it.
There nre probably no people ln the
world hotter able to Improvise than
we are, and experience shows that
wo havo positively a talent for thiB
particular work. But it takes time.
Good officers, good N.C.O.'s, guns,
rides and ammunition wagonB tatte
time to provide, and without a good
nucleus of trained professional officers and N.C.O.'s tho creation of efficient troops ls extremely arduous.
There will be no dlfflcn'.ty Bhout the
men If public spirit rema'ns at its
present level, and, aa the Prime Mlnlater haa rightly Bald, the provision
of tbe men la th? tlrst and most indispensable step to take. The evolving of efficient armhs out of masses
of raw material is moro difficult. II
we are to place a million men in the
field and maintain them in the field,
we must have three men at tho depots tor every live In the Held, and
the provlaion of rides, clothing—not
forgetting winter garments—and
cqulpmont muBt be on a corresponding scale.
There cnn be little doubt, that so
long ns the country Is In Its prcBont
mood we ahall be able to raise a
million men a yenr, and gradually to
fashion thimi into a formidable
fighting force. Hut we must not minimize the time needed tor creating
such a force. An army, an N. C. O.,
a gun, n rllle anil a thousand rounds
of ammunition nil take a certain time
to turn out, and nothing but disappointment cnn ensue if wc think
that wo can do in six months what
has taken (iermany hall a century
i* effort.
Vancouver, B.C., Nov. r..—For the
drat time in the history of the city
(■I Vnncouver the local police will bc
armed with rllles and bayonets. The
question wns discussed at _ meeting
of the police board this afternoon,
when the chief of police suggested
that It would be better il this were
done, for many reasons, anil the commissioners came to the conclusion
that the suggestion of thc chiel was
a good one. Results will be that the
men will he oquipped as quickly as
possible with the latest pattern of
rllle and liayonot.
There are sufficient Indications that
the people of Canada are responding
to the pntrlotlc appeal to buy goods
mado in our Canadian factories during the war. It is one thing to get
ordera nnd another thing to hold
them. Thc manufacturers are faced
with a responsibility lf they arc to
hold the customers who arc buying
their goods in order to keep Canadian factories buay. Thoy must take
rare that these goods shall be of a
quality which will stand comparison
with foreign goods.
If a few Canadian manufacturers
yield to the desire for profits at thc
expense of quality discredit will bc
brought upon the whole body ol
manufacturers to some extent. When
people tnke the troublo to nsk specially for "Made-tn-Cnnnda" goodB
they should get the worth ot their
monoy. Dissatisfied buyers will he
iinwill'ng in future to govern their
purchases by their patriotism if they
receive articles of Inferior manufacture. We believe that the majority
of Canadian manufacturers will not
only seize the opportunity to utilize
the Increased volume ol business for
the improvement of quality, hut will
nlso see that a possible minority of
the less scrupulous shall not bring
discredit on and inflict injury to the
good name of Conadlnn industry.
This is an opportunity to improve
the quality of Canadian-mude goods
to such a degree that they will successfully meet competition in the
Canadian market and challenge it
abroad.—Industrial Canada.

The Handicap of Bigness.
Many have thought that thc mere bigness of the
mail oriler house.! enables them to sell more
cheaply than thc local merchant. On the contrary, bigness entails vastly increase! expenses,
out of proportion to the increased business. Trace
your order through mail-openers, checkers, cashiers, more oieckers, billets, still more checkers,
shippers, teamsters, etc., with checkers to check
the checkers at every step. Then consider the enormous taxes and rents thty have to pay. You
will find that your local merchant, who superintends his own business, is in a position to give
you better service at the same or better nricss.

"Between Savage and
All jungle and animal pictures in
the past have been limited to the
visualization of wild animal 13fe in
its native quarter, showing their destruction or capture by .hunters.
George Kleine's photo drama "Between Savage and Tiger," however,
goes a step further. It not only
shows the animals and terrors df the
jungle, but also relates an absorbing
story of love and heroism that enlists the interest' in the beginning
and holds it fast until the very last
picture fades upon the screen. The
jungle episodes, while thrilling enough
to satisfy' the most exacting demands
for thrills and excitement, are subsidiary to the love interests. Herein
the great Clnes Company of Italy
have shown the master mind, for after all, love is tbe mainspring of life
itself. In "Between Savage and Ti
ger" there is the love between the
hero and his wife, which prompts the
latter to brave the perils of India to
find her husband. The child love for
and ot the little daughter whose
sweetness endears ber to everyone
with whom she comes in contact and
draws into their life history a bluff
old sailor who proves their best
friend in many dangerous situations.
The child interest also lias a potent
influence on the spectators for the
little one is exposed to some terrible
ordeals. Then,again there lis the love
of the daughter of the chief of savages who hold the bero prisoner
When in the course of the story the
wife and husband are united and the
savage girl realizes her love for the
hero is hopeless, her affection turns
to hatred and desire for vengeance,
lt is through her plots and machinations that the little family are exposed to dangers that almost result
In their destruction. Thus love plays
thc real important part in this drama of life in the wilds of India, where
the other actors are man-eating tigers, elophants, water-buffalo and sav
age tribesmen. "Between Ravage and
Tiger" will prove one of George
Kleine's biggest money makers be

British Columbia Inter-
terests Affected
As a result of the ruling just promulgated by the Pnited States customs officials an ad valorem duty of
15 per cent has been imposed on a
large number of lumber items which
have for months been entering the
States duty free from Canada, and
the situation affecting the timber industry in this province has been
further complicated. Inasmuch as the
new order is the res.ilt of a decision
by the assistant attorney-general at
Washington, who has overruled the
opinions of the customs department
and the hoard of customs appraisers
at New York,'it Is probable that the
Provincial government will bring the
matter to the attention of the Department of Trade and Commerce at
The customs appraisers, in a case
originating in New York state, held
that under the new tariff all the
lumber in question should be admitted free. These rulings have now,
apparently, been set aside and instructions issued to collect a 15 per
cent ad valorem duty.
In announcing the action of the
United States customs officials in
Placing the duty on British. Columbia lumber, the West Coast Lumberman gives the following details:
"All lumber, which is further manufactured than planed nnd tongued
and grooved is now held to be dutiable. This covers all beaded material, coved lumber, novelty siding,
moldings and a large number of otber items.
"The customs officials hold that
all coved material, such as coved
flooring, is dutiable. Alao that car
roofing which has a cove on the
bottom and battens are duitiable.
"The new ruling hns caught a
number of British Columbia miflls
with U. S. orders on their hooka
who are either compelled to cancel
tho business (tr pay tbe duty to get
their lumber into tbis country."

Against What Are We Fighting?
(The Wesleyan.)
We are at war. Everybody knows
that to his sorrow even in thia Canadian Dominion so lar from the European battlefield. Many understand
why.we are at war. They know Itis
to maintain'the honor ot the Empire
as expressed iin international treaties
which our enemies regard us "scraps
of paper," as well as to defend a
weaker nnd oppressed nation. Many,
however, do not know the force
against which we are called to contend. So much has been said of late
about national armies and navies
that the public has come to think
mainly, if not wholly, of material
force in connection with war. But
mighty as these material forces seem
they are of secondary importance. It
is not against German Krupp guns,
nor Zeppelin airships, nor submarines,
that we are waging war. These are
but the outward and visible sign of
an invisible and infernal spiritual
I ower which uses them' for the accomplishment of its evil purposes.
Por every effect there must be an efficient and adequate cause. In these
engines of destruction we see but the
instrument or effects. He who knew
declared "hy their fruits ye shall
know them." Every fruit, however
bitter or deadly, has grown on some
tree. Where Bhall'be found thev"upaa
tree that bas produced this unparalleled war?" Such a dreadful harvest
of brutality,and slaughter of wanton
destruction of life and property, and
consequent sorrow as the whole world
is now being compelled to reap, could
only have grown from seed profusely
Bown. It is the logical outcome of
the teaching imparted in German
school and universities. For a generation or more Germany bas been under the influence of a false philosophy
and a false theology which bas denuded her of all true and healthy
conception of God and morality. The
destructive criticism of tbe literature
of the Bible and the rationalisation '
of the history of the Israelltlah peo-'

pie wh'ch has characterized German
thought and teaching Instead of liberating th» spiritual elements of the
Christian faith from superstition has
resulted in thorough and general religious scepticism. ThiB false teaching has poisoned all the springs of
Germany's life and thou.ht, making
her more brutal than the ane'ent pagans. Neltzsche says: "Tbe grent
man Is not he who is in sympathy
with his fellows, but he who is cap-
nble of inflicting the cruelUst sufferings without heeding the cries of his
victims. You say a good cause sanctifies every cause." The wholesale
slaughter and. wanton destruction
which bis marked the advance of the
German army is not the impulsive
outburst of the brutal passions of a
few soldiers, hut the legitimate and
inevitable outcome of a settled policy and a generally accepted philosophy of diabolic cruelty. "It is hut a
short step from the morality of
Nietzsche to the massacre of Lou-
vain." Wc are told "Nothing is true.
Everything is permitted to the
strong." But thia ia to dam up all
streams of moral feeling, and to develop such monsters aB have overrun
Belgium, destroying its cities, devastating ItB fruitfil fields, "earning to
noncombatunts tbe maximum of suffering and leaving the women and
children nothing but their eyes to
weep with," cutting ofl their arms
and hands lest they should wipe away
their tears. Sucb cruelty could only
have one origin. It is diabolical. It
Is from hell. "We wrestle not against
flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
againBt spiritual wickedness in bigb
places." Never since the day wben
tbe great apostle of the Gentilea
wrote these worda have they been
more applicable to tbe condition of
tbe world than at this present hour.
Does it not seem as if nil the forces
of evil had been let loose, not only
on Europe, hut upon tbe world at
large? Is not this their hour, and
ttie power or dar!inem? If we are to
triumph we must realize the nature
of the forces against which we contend. Instead of attempting to meet
German artillery witb heavier artillery we must got behind and above
the evil spiritual, infernal powers in
which these awful brutalities of war
find their Inspiration. If this stern
and bloody con'lict be hut tbe outward manifestation of diabolical power there Is but one power In the universe that 1b superior tn It or that
cnn vanquish it. As It Is, the failure
of morality which has brought war,
so lt Is the restoration of the authority of. the moral or spiritual powers, and that alone which een bring
peace. This trliinphant power is nt
the Church's command. To her tbe
message comes: "Be strong ln the
Lord and in the power of his might."
At all hazards, in this dread hour,
the Christian world must bave this
powor. To your knees, O ye people
of God. Loud and Imperative Is the
call to humble, fervent, united, persistent prayer. All Christians should
"pray with all prayer and supplication In the Spirit watching therefore
with all perseverance." Some trust
In Krupp guns, and some In Zeppelin
airships and some in submarines "hut
we will remember tho name nf the
Lord our God." With one heart and
one voice let the Church cry oil!.:
Arm of tho Lord, Awake! Awakel
Thine own   immortal strength put
With terror   clothed hell's  kingdom
And east.Thy foes with fury down.
