ing, touching references were made
today to his death, and the "Dead
March in Salt" was played.
In a telegram to Lady Roberts,
Field Marshall Sir John French, in
the name of the army serving in
France, expressed deep sympathy,
Baying;
"Your grief is shared by us who
mourn the loss, of a much loved chief,
As he was called, it seems fitter to

A  BRILLIANT 0AJUDBR.
RobortB, of Kandahar, Pretoria and
Watorford, us Field Marshal Lord
Frederick Bloigll Roborta wast nown,
sums up briefly the career of tbe
mited soldier whose death has plunged the Empire into moiruing, Hcion
of a noble Irish family, Lord Roberts
was born in 1832 in C'awnporo, In
din, wheru his father, General Sir
Abrnhnm Roberts, was serving.
It was In tbe Indian service that
the gallant and efficient Irish soldier
achieved h's tlrst and 'acting fame.
It was in Houth Africa in Ids later
years that this was Bl Implemented and
magnified by his achievements in
Great Britain's victorious campaign
ngninst the Boers.
KNOWN TO MEN AH "BOBS"
Bit1., if It was as u tleld marshal
and earl that Lord Roberts was formally Known, it wns as "Bobs" that
the men of the run'ts knew blm, loved
him and greeted him. In their estimation and in thnt of the admiring
public, which appreciated and applauded bis BUCC08S for bis country,
no name could lit blm better tban
Ibiu diminutive of his family nume
and word meaning "hero" in Hindu.
Showered as hn was wltb honors und
tary ability was appreciated.
GREATEST    SOLDIER OF TIME
"Tbe greatest soldier of hiB time,"
were   the    words used   by   Emperor
William of Germany in paying tribute
to him.
"Rofberts of Kandahar," the emperor is recorded nB saying, "has much
of the subtl.ety and ability >to deceive
his opponents that hive distinguished the greatest military geniuses o
tha ] int. I bold him the ablest of
today's soldiers."
BRITAIN'S   PRIDE IN  CAREER
For more than half a century Britain had occasion to take pride in
the career of Roberts, the soldier. As
lho career ripened she came to bold
him in the same affection ns Wellington, Olive und Kitchener. In nine
of her wars he was in the thick of the
lighting und many times was wounded. As he fought he rose in rank
from a ■supemumory sa'jaltern in the
horse artillery to field marshal and
commander-in-chief of all the British
armies. As further rewards he was
made a peer of the real and the recipient of distinguished orders, of
which the chief was tbe Order of the
Garter, the most ancient and higheBt
irized of all British orders. This
came to him in 1901 after his noble
services in leading the British cause
to victory in South Africa.

which suggests that Chicago is being
given the preference in the purchase
of remounts, although western Canada is in a position to supply 100,000,
Mr. A. H. Griffith, secretary for the
high commissioner's office, states
that as a matter of fact many purchases had been made in western
Canada, involving large amounts.
"We have no direct dealing in this,"

Editor "Prospector,"
Dear Sir,—We ueg to inform the
people of Cranbrook and district thut
contributions toward the Belgium Relief Fund have been received from
Kimberley, Marysville, Bull River,
Wardner, the Mission and Cranbrook.
The committee wish to inform the
donators that the contributions were
so large that they comprised 18
boxes in all, which have been forwarded to Montreal free of charge by
the Dominion Express company. The
approximate value of the goodB sent
is $1500.00. A letter of advice containing a full description of the contents has been forwarded to the Belgian consul at Montronl and as soon
ns an acknowledgement of same is
received by tbe President it will be
published in these columns bo that
all contributors will be aware of the
safe arrival of their generous gifts to
this needy cause.
The Relief committee take this opportunity of thanking everyone who
their assistance so generously,
both in the making and in the sending of this generous donation.
Mrs.    J.    H.    King,   president;
Mrs. W. E. Worden, Mrs, F. B.
Miles,    Mrs. W. B. MacFarlane,
Mrs. A. A. Johnson, Mrs. J. F.
Smith,  executive committee.
Mrs. (Dr.) J. H. King is especially
to bo congratulated for the perseverance and faithfulness she has exhibited   as   president   of   this committee
and for taking charge ot atuh a work
that assumed such magnitude beyond
the dreams of the moat hopeful.   Her
time has been given unstintingly and
the many calls on her executive ability have been responded to   most nobly.    Everyone  of those who contributed toward thiB donation will ever
bear a warm place in their hearts for
her for the ready advice and assistance she accorded to all enquirerB.
This work of charity began on Monday, 26th of Octoher and was completed and Bhipped', on the 17th of November, in all 21 days. Thc work, after it had once begun, began to assume large proportions, and it has
been a matter of great surprise to
the committee to realise that they
were able to handle the large amount
of produce sent in to the committee
rooms, so kindly loaned hy Mr. W,
IJ.  MacFarlane for this purpose.
The generous contributions received
were from all over the district, and
not contlned to any one place. They
comprised everyth tig imaginable in
clothing for the children, the women
and thc men, from a stocking to a
hat.
'Ihe committee who took charge of
collecting these gifts are to be congratulated on tbe way they have
bandied tbo shipments as they arrived; no one but those who were in
touch with the wo"k can realise the
amount of time and care mc -saury to
carry out tbe animus task they so
voluntarily expended. It was a real
delight to look over somo of the
gifts, they were perfect works of art,
tho needlework and crochet work especially drawing tbe attention of the
committee. The patience, and in
many cases thn self-sacritlce of the
givers are worthy of one's best
praise. It can be taken for granted
tbat tbe gift tbat left Cranbrook on
Tuesday will bear most favorably
with the best that will be received at
Montreal.

at the inception of the order of the
Overseas Club the members took (or
their motto the above lines from
Tennyson's poems. Today the results
of the principles Involved in the Above
words have created a membership of
120,000. The creed adopted by tbem
in tbelr work is "Believing the BritlBh Empire to stand for justice, freedom, order and good government, we
pledge ourselves, as citizens ol the
greatest Empire in tbe world, to
maintain the heritage banded down
to us by our fathers."
The Overseas Club in a non-party
society of BritlBh subjects residing
outside of the United Kingdom. ItB
underlying motive is to promote the
unity of BritiBh subjects the world
ovor. It his three objects: First—
To help one another; second—Tn render individual service to our Empire;
third—To draw together in the bond
of comradeship British people the
world over."
With the Motto, Creed and Objects
so clearly defined and their meaning
po transparent to all readers it is
not to be wondered at that at this
time of trial in the nation's history
the membera are uniting together to
hrin^ comfort to those on the field of
battle and in the camps.
In the 120,000 membership there
can be found those who reBide in every part of the habitable globe outside the United Kingdom. In these
are- includes representatives of almost every sections nf the peoples
'i/ing under the protection of the
British flag, Australians, Canadians,
English, Irish, Newfoundlanders, New.
Zealanders, Scots, South Africans
and Welsh,
The Local Branch of this society
have in- the *past done some excellent
work,toward uniting the units of the
Empire together; they have always
been ever ready to join hands with
other organizations when the interests of the Empire are to be fulfilled;
they have bcen ever ready to undertake anything of a patriotic nature
no matter how hard may hive been
their task or arduous their duties.
f. h'.ertulness and cordial greetings
arc ths keynotes of their meetings
and greetings toward one another
and to friends who need the hand of
sympathy. Their membership is distributed in almost every organization in the city, so then, if the Overseas tl ub is not directly connected
Ilu influence is of times felt in th.'
working for the benefit of others.
It seems just now as if the Club is
very strongly represented in the local 107th Regiment. Cnpta.n Tisdale Is a member of the Club, three
of their members are now on their
way to the battle-line, and others
are waiting to go. The Club is represented on the local Sunshine committee, Us members bave carried
their work to other fields for several
of them have sent good J to Oalgary
organizations.
At tbe present time the local club
is acting on the suggestion of tbe
authorities at headquarters to "Bather than start any special work in
your city it is best to devote all the
assistance possible to help oth -r local organizations who arc working
with a patriotic motive to the <nl
of assisting those at thc front."
Apart from their many IChemea
there has heen sturted at head jiiart-
ori a scheme to provide tobacco and
mntchcB for the men in the light ini;
line. Tbe scheme outlined Is Called
Ihe "Overseas Paily Mail Toharco

being sent out to the members to
work on its behalf, Men are always

Farmer's Institute
At tbe Annual Meeting of the
('ranbrook FanncrB' Institute held in
the old gymnasium on Saturday, No-
vomber Hth, the president, Mr. A.B.
Smith, presided over a fairly well
attended gathering. After the minutes of t.he last annual meeting he
also gave a well prepared and able
paper on the work of the past year
and on conditions affecting farmers
at the present time.
The secretary, Mr. A. H. Webb, reported a membership of 58 for the
year. In his report he alluded to the
progress made by tbe institute in
holding a pruning school, senior and
junior crop competitions, bringing in
Sample seed and holding supplementary meetings at outside points.
The auditor, Mr. S. Macdonald,
who after holding the position of
secretary for many years still stands
i i tbe front rank for attendance and
interest in the work, pointed out that
a very small balance remained, as
rent $22.00, prizes $30.00 and a few
other expenses incurred with the new
departures had Badly depleted tbe
1 ank balance.
Out of tbe small balanre remaining
the members VOttd $.1.00 as a special
prize foi dreasid poultry at the
forthcoming poultry show in the
city, nnd (.'>.00 as a nucleus of a pa-
tiiotic fund for the institute. The
secretary was instructed to circularize the farmers and try to raise
tliO.OO to be sent off with donations
from tbe other Institute members ln
tbe province.
Under the n"W rules eight directors
were elected A. B, Smith, J. A.

POLITICAL  LEADERS
AND  PATRIOTISM
The great leaders on nil sides
throughout the Empire by tacit and
unanimous con-ent agreed to sink
party dirlerences. The local warring
elements In Ireland, Africa and India
acted as a unit in taking up anus or
Otherwise assisting tbe Imperial authorities; the charitable spirit took
the place of the natural longing uf
those in opposition to occupy the
seats of power. The remarkable wave
of feeling swept throughout the Empire. Earl Roberts nnd Lord Charles
lieresford might have said "I told
you so. I warned you long ago,"
but with silence and dignity they did
noble work instead of complaining.
Canada might have rebuked her
Senators and those who were responsible for clipping the power of the
Imperial] fleet, of stultifying the tri-
den of Brittania, who protects the
ocean highways in the interests ot
and for the good of the universe.
The spirit was contagious, oven
those whose bent is naturally mean
and selfish assumed the earbs of
charity, patriotic spirit and generosity. In but few instances the dignity assumed has been maintained; of
Course, human failings crop out now
and then when the assumed mantle
slips from the shoulders of mediocrity and the true nature is revealed.
Wn regret not only to hive to criticise but to call upon public opinion
to scourge those who permit the assumed mantle to slip so low as to reveal the selfish instincts which
prompt them under present, conditions to make basely false and me-
less attncks upon those who hnve
done, and are doing, their utmost to
preserve the integrity and honor of
the Empire by useful and continuous
work, not tainted by vilitleation of
others, but by quietly doing and preparing thing* of a constructive nature for the good of the Province,
the Dominion and the Empire.
On this occasion we refer to a most
unjust and malicious attack on tit*
Provincial Government, by Mr. M. A.
Macdonald at a meeting of Liberals in
Cranbrook on Thursday last, and as
Mr. Macdonald is one who aspires to
tbe leadership of tiie Liberal party,
the bad taste anil odium emanating
from the same will rebound wltb double boomerang force against himself.
Prior to the war Mr, Macdonald
used the same language ami made
the same charges at many meetings;
the remarkable mediocrity of tbe
speaker acted as a shield or defence,
nnd bis words fell at tbat time unheeded, as being worth what they
wero—a reiteration of empty words
without even a shadow of proof, the
burden of the speech being "That tbe
next election wit overturn thc most
inefficient and corrupt Provincial
Government ever known in Canada
since ^confederation." Mr. Macdonald
used exactly'the same words prior to
the last election before he was a defeated candidate, and be surely bad
ample time even hft'ore war was declared to Imve produced proof of bis
criminal charge, if the Government
is corrupt Mr. Macdonald as an aspirant to leadership has failed to do
his duty to the people in not securing   proof of   the criminality; ns a
criminologist he is as great u failure
as be has been as a politician. Au as
piring statesman should invent, propound and endorse son e.hing along
(not destructive) but constructive
lines, something of use to the peo*
pie. Mr, Macdonald haH not yet
evolved any brilliant ideas, nor has
be ever suggested anything ot any
use. On tbe other baud, the one ne
so bitterly criticises and envies, Sir
Richard McUrule, has not only talked but has done things of vast magnitude for the good of the Province
and the Empire, and is now engaged
in evolving still greater things, which
when Completed will excite the bitter envy of the mediocre minds ol
puerile antagonists, who cannot even
pro tem cover the cloven boof of iel-
Qsh desire with the mantle of patriotism.
FALSE REPORTS.
It is, or should be, a well known
fact that editors and proprietors of
newspapers are legally responsible for
'false or damaging reports, gnd if malice can be proved against the publisher the ease assumes a dangwTOUB
shape against the personal liberty o!
the traducers. A person ma> be traduced in various ways—by reporting
a portion of a statement, by coloring
the balance, by making the victim
and others appear as saying what
was never uttered 'for it he purpose of
holding the. person attacked by innuendo up to ridicule.
Like mn3t of the human race we
enjoy a lively meeting and humorous-
incidents, but when malice is in evidence and a speaker is reported as
saying wbat alt present can prove he
never uttered, there ts something
wrong.
A report such as appeared in the
Herald re the Conservative meeting
was of that mature, the evident intention Ot the reporter being to hold
up Mr. A. E. Watts to ridicule at
the expense Of truth and decency
The report of what he said was absolutely untrn\ in the lirst place he
never mentioned tbe. word "Grit" or
"Liberal," nor did lie make any re-
marka about the Liberal party. Other parts of the Herald's report are
also maliciously false bearing tbe evident intention of damaging one who
has in the past done yeoman's service on behiitf of tbe public.
That kind of ancient journalism can
win only one thing and that Is, the
Contempt of all fair minded people.
CENSORING OF NEWSPAPERS
(Reproduced from The Week)
Tbe Hritisb Government has established a strict censorship of newspapers Within the bounds of the United Kingdom. This was done at the
commencement of the war and to uae
a Western phrase, "the lid Ls on so
tight" thnt nothing is printed without thc permission of tbe official censors. This is not the time to discuss the wisdom of the policy. If for
no other reason, because it is one
which was laid down hy the man in
whom a3l have absolute confidence,
and on whose strategy we depend for
tinnl success. Kitchener may not be
infallible, but at the present moment
we all prefer to believe that he is, in

Appeals to Everybody.
Many people overlook the advantage of newspaper advertising. It ttie farmer has stock to sell,
he can tinrl buyers, if lie wants to buy. he can have
the sellers come to him. When anything is 1'ist
or found, when help is wanted, or a position is
sought; when any article from a baby carriage to
a pet fox could be exchanged to advantage, a
small  advertisement   In  the  newspaper will  accomplish the desired result.
Nearly everybody can use the advertising columns to advantage at some time, and every person will profit by reading the advertisements
regularly.

the full knowledge that nothing will
so strengthen his arm as for bim to
realize this conviction. Naturally,
the censorship has not given universal
satisfaction, There have been many
protests, but no material change hnn
been made, nor is there any evidence
of such a probability. It is not rea-
bi nahle t(i BUggeat that at a distance
varying from 3,uoo to 7,noo miles
from the main theatre of war, it Is
necessary to adopt us stringent reg-
i Lations a« at borne, but no close observer of the despatches which have
time and again appeared in some
Onnadian papers could doubt that it
is necessary to establish some form
ol Governmental control. On lus re-
turft from the West Major Chambers,
•[ Ottawa, the Deputy Censor ol the
Dominion, is reported to have said
that on the whole he bad met witb
the most cordial co*operation on the
art of the press. It is gratifying to
read the tribute of Major Chambers
nnd to realize, a1* we all do, the anxiety ol the press to help tbe military
iml naval authorities ni every possible wuy. There is no doubt that bun
Ireds of despatches have been volun
tartly suppressed and there is little
doubt that such sensational and
groundless stories as have been pub
liahed ha»e found their way Into
print, not In any spirit of contumacy
on the part of editors, but either
through thoughtlessness, or, possibly
a different viewpoint from that taken
by the alltborities. The Week believes
that all that is necessary to prevent
the publication of alarmist and; sensations* stories is a courteous re-
tuest from the Government to the
press. This request might eo a little
further in the form of a representation to the various press agencies,
not to send out sucb despatches, if
that fails, the simple remedy would
be to censor the press agencies. If
the evil be attacked at its source, it
will be effectively checied and there
cannot be ,twu opinions that this
Might to be done, not only because
injudicious despatches are calculated
to alarm the public and to cause untold anxiety and suffering, but also
because they muy on occasion furnish
Information to the enemy; and, let it
never be forgotten that the enemy is
in ore midst, thousands strong, Spe-
cial point is given to these observations by the highly sensational story
published in all the Coast paws,
and probably, throughout the Dominion, of the supposed naval battle oft
tbe coast of Chile in which It wai
positively asserted that one British
cruiser was sunk, another ao badly
lamaged and fired that no chance of
Iht survival was admitted, and a
third limped into the port of Val-
pniraiso in a crippled condition. In
this momentous naval engagement,
although the British fleet was practically demollihid, the German fleet
wns said hardly to have received a
scratch. This fight is alleged to have
taken place on Sunday last, yet at
the time of writing there haB been no
official confirmation, and high autfa-
rities have advised that the- public
await a report from the Admiralty.
There mav have been an engagement,
although even that is doubtful, but
at present the authenticity of the report rests solely on the teBtimonv of
n German admiral, wh'ch few people
who hnve followed the war would be
prepared to , accept. Not even the
hrHiant editorials end tbe enlightened Criticism of the British Admiralty,
which tbe report evoked, would seem
to Justify its publication on sucb evidence.--Nov. 7, 1914.
A   SIGNIFICANT ORDBR.
In its lust issue, The Week hud an

newspapers. By the time that Issue

Privy Council had promulgated, and
the Dominion Government hnd en*

As a nation, we are profoundly
than*,fui for 8.r>G years, our land has
not experienced the awful, calamity of
Foreign Invasion. Tbe picture of tbe
conditions in Belgium und France
portrayed in the Daily Press, have
brought home to us more forcibly
than anything tbnt has happened
within living memory, wbat we have
escaped, through being an Island people. Home might say, that 1
am overlooking the ifact that num

Knglisb, Scotch, Irish and Welsh but
surely these events can he looked upon us the (|uariels of a family which
has now grown up? Now that Home
Rule has been placed on tbe Statute
Book, we have, for the tlrst time in
history the spectacle of the Irish nation unanimously on the side of Great.
Britain, This in itself is a matter
for great rejoicing, and we are en

will, when victory In this conflict
has been achieved, tly at one another's throats. No; civil war in Ireland wil be impossible after enduring
this terrible trial, and we may look
Into the future with confidence that
out of the great tribulation, happiness, trust, regard and prosperity
will spring up to bless u united Irish
Nation.
EMPIRE FEDERATION.
We have witnessed such an outpouring of love and loyalty to the Homeland, for every section of the .Empire
that we can truly suy that (with the
exception of Germany and Austria)
the whole world has been thrilled,
and possibly even "the rar.»;s of the
Tuscany could scarce forbear to
cheer." The cup of joy to the people of these Islands has been filled to
overflowing, and we are asking "What
will the result be? One thing at least
seems clear. that the Dominions who
have rallied so magnificently of their
own free will to the cause, must for
the future be given a share in the
councils that decide our Foreign Policy. And what of India; that land of
which has been said time and time
again, "By the sword it was won,
and by the sword it will have to be
held." How the prophecies of the
past have been proved to be unfounded. The wonderful outpouring of life
and treasure by the people of India,
has Bwept aside J.l fears, and there
is no do iht that some form of self-
government will be extended to them,
aB early as possible after the end of
the war. Tha British Empire, held
together hy such outwardly slender
threads, has already been consolidated as never before, and who can say
what tremendous and far-reaching decisions will conie about, as a result
of these glorious events?
SOCIAL PROBLEMS.
Parliament for some seven or eight
years bas beeu attempting great
things socially, hut to many the progress has been so Blow, that they
despaired of being able to accomplish
their plans for social betterment.
Tho Parliamentary machine was
deemed Inadequate, and appeared to
bc breaking down under the great
strain, but, Lo! WAR is declared,
with the result that Parliament once
bo slow, so deliberate, becomes "in
the twinkling of an eye," efficient,
drastic, and swift. We did not begin to ask ourselves whether we
could stand a heavy tax Increase in
tbe Income Tax, or whether It waB
right for the government to take
over the Railways by a stroke of the
pen, or whether lt was a dangerous
precedent to commandeer food and
property. Not one single voice was
raised against the momentous decision to ignore the wbole Poor-law organization, nor against thc appointing of committers in every district,
to deal with unemployment and distress during the present emergency,
h0 that our peoplo might not feci the
pauperizing effect, thnt seems to havo
become attached to the hdp given
through thc Poor-law commissioners.
No; We realized that the only thing
to be considered was the Nation's
welfare, and when the war is ovor
this new sense ot proportion will not
altogether disappear. People who
have roslgnod themselves to tbe drab,
and Inadequate llfo imposed on a
great many of our follow countrymen,
by the apathy or fears of society,
will no longer accept tbat tot as Invincible. We arc divining something
of the deeper and truer needs ot humanity, and we may be mire that thc
narrow class conceptions of Prewar
days, are dissolving lu the sense of
a common Sacrifice, The feelings of
"society" In the "common"
people In view nf their miignl
cent achievements In the defense of
our heritage, me being softened and
deepened and n spirit of "trust the
people" Is arising whleh promises
well for tho social future,
WOMKNH SUFFRAGE,
It seems along time since we suffered the frantic efforts nf the   "ad
vanced" woman suffragists. How is
the war affecting this question? The
sacrifices imposed by war, are not
less heavy ior women than for men.
If thc total sum of misery ia counted
women's sacrifices arc indeed greater.
We can see this very clearly in any
invaded coi In try. It waa true in
South Africa, it is truer still in Belgium, and even amongst us, those
who give their own lives give less
than those who give their husbands,
or their sons. Nut only so, but It is
the women wbo have the [ears aud
gnawing anxiety of what, tomorrow
mny bring, the supreme misery of
want, and all the vicissitudes and
anxieties of tbe industrial community at war brought home to them,
With a much keener effect than to
men. It is Iueoticeivable that a nation whleh has pnssed through this
ordoa] ran ever be content t,, shut
tbe door upon women, to mark'tbem
ofl as no partners In the state, to
tell them that they belong to a separate order, und that uo sacrifice or
heroism can alter their condition.
BtireU UO one will ever grudge to
women, who have ho heavy a share
in the burdens of the tuition, a share
m its responsibilities ami councils?
CONSCRIPTION,
This terrible subject which Iiiih been
ho zealniiHly preached by Lord Roberts and others, has received its
deathblow. When the German armies
were daily getting nearer, and nearer Parte, the recruiting returns went
up by leaps and bounds: 80,000 u
day ! or pruetieiUy as many joining the ('(dors daily us join in a
whole normal yenr. An island nation
defended as we are by our navy, witb
the willingness nnd ability to enrol
30,000 volunteers a day has no need
Of conscription, and the present, illustration has convinced the nation
that whatever others may do at the
end of tbis war in regard to armaments, we, for our part will have nothing to do with this form of barbarism. Further, the success of the
volunteer army in meeting the assaults of 'German ConscriptB, haB
proved the correctness of the proverb thit says "One volunteer iB
worth three pressed men."
THE FUTURE IN REGARD TO
ARMAMENTS.
War was condemned by most
thinking people before the advent of
the preBent world calamity, but now,
there blazes in the heart of humanity
a passion of wrath against the stupendous crime of war. It is not
merely that modern civilization cannot co-exist with war, hut there is a
sense of revolt against the arbitrament of Armstrong, Krupp and
Schneider. It is the insanity of the
thing, against which the mind rebels.
We labor through generations to
build up a system of social life and
international relationship, and then
suddenly at the inspiration of a few
despots and diplomatists, the guns
o. Krupp and Armstrong are brought
In to batter the whole thing to a
rubbish heap. The arbitrament of
war so far from being fulfilment of
Justice, is the negation of justice, for
it loads the dice every time against
the weaker side. And if war iB repudiated by the mind on the score of
justice it is no less repudiated, in
that It serves no moral end. We shall
not all become degenerates and cowards, because we do not practice the
butchering of our neighbors. The
cant—nay the blasphemy—that war is
"God's Medicine," la exploded, and lt
Ib seen to be the very work of devils.
That it is nature's way of securing
"the survival of the attest/' is not
even possible if we say that to he fit
test for fighting, Is the great end ot
man, because, the fittest do not
necessarily survive. Wbat discrimination do Krupp and Armstrong make
when their guns Bend their measen
■gers to scatter impartial death, four
or ten miles away? Nol if bloodshed Is
neceBBary to preserve the courage and
stamina of thn rcce, It Is necessary
to glvo it a place in our every day intercourse, for the doctrine of salvation by bloodshed needs for its fulfillment, not International war, but the
private duel. We havo eliminated
trial hy combat, and have placed In
its stead trial by Jury. So internationally we hope this war will lead to
the abolition of war. Lot It he the
•Never Again War," and set up In
its stead trial by u Jury of the nations. In civil life wc hive the policeman to deal with those of tho
community who refuse to fulfill the
retirements that our laws demand,
So, Internationally, let us have un
intomationnl police force to deal
with any recalcitrant State. Let us
face tho fact that we have done nothing, until we havo done everything
that war will remain, s<> long as war
preparations are permitted. 'Ihit old
saying "tho way to pronorvo peace Is
to be prepared for war," has boen
proven to bo the greatest, of lies. We
have to civilize the state as we
have civilized thn individual, A
Dream! Well, tbo alternative Is bo-
fore ns—Europe ushumhlcs, an Insult

McNicholl, who haB been connected
with the road in various capacities
since 1875, Is retiring becnuse ol poor

BURY SUCCEEDS McNICHOLL
Montreal, Nov. 19.—Sir Thomas

Winnipeg, Nov. 19.—Mr. Bury when
seen tonight, hnd Junt finished rending the official announcement given
out by Sir Thomas Shniiglinossy anil
hnd therefore not given any thought
to his Iuture plans. He stated, how
ovor, that ho would probably move
his residence to Montreal and be In a
position to take over bis now   office
will give bim complete control over
all divisions east and west.
Humors were busy tonight iu connection with his probable successor
in Winnipeg and the general idea is
that Graut Hall, at present general
manager, will be appointed.
Mr. Hall seems to be the logical
successor in tbe natural course of
events. D. U. Coleman, now superintendent' of Calgary, will ln aiU probability, bo appointed to succeed Mr.
Hull as general manager of- western
lines.

DAVID  McNICHOL.
David McNicholl who is retiring
from the vice-preBidency and general
managership 0f the Canadian Pacific
railway is a railroad man of life-long
experience. For the paBt 48 years
ho has been connected with thc work,
having entered the Bervlce ol the
North British railway, Scotland, in
1866 as a clerk in thc goods manager's office. He served in n similar
capacity with the Midlands railway
In Englani, but only for a short time

Profit to_Alfalfa
Irrigated lands in Southern Alberta, wheu devoted to alfalfa growing,
return a net profit of eight per cent,
on a valuation of over $100.00 per
acre, according to S. S. Dunham,
cbnirmnn of the Rural Relations committee of the Lethbrldge board of
Trade.
Mr. Dunham presented his QgtlreB
at a meeting of larmers recently held
near Lethbridge to petition the Dominion Government to extend the irrigation systeniB in Southern Alberta. A petition, pruylng the Government to undertake important irrigation enterprises, wns Bigned by over
200 fanners. The cost of bringing the
land under irrigntion wns estimated
at $18.00 per acre, and the farmers
expressed their willingness to pny
thiB amount, with Interest at four
per cent., the Government to extend
repayment over a period of forty
years.
It was In connection with thc estimated cost ol $18.00 per acre that
Mr, Dunham presented his figures.
"Get irrigation nt $18.00 an acre
If you can," he Bald. "If you cannot
get it at $18.00 nn acre, got it at
$50.00 or $60.00, but get lt."
Mr. Dunham proceeded to Bhow the
profits which irrigation mado posBi-
ble. He Instanced alfalfa, which has
come to be an important crop in the
irrigated areas df Alberta, and presented the following figures lor an
ncre of alfalfa: $1.00 an acre for water; 75 cents for applying thc water
three times during the season, and
$3.75 per acre for putting the crop
in stack—a total cost of $5.50 per
acre. A crop of 21 tons per acre
(Mnny irrigntion'farmers are getting
four and five tons per acre) would
show a net profit of $8.25 per acre at
the low price of $5.50'per ton, without any depletion of the soil, belt actually increasing its fertility. On
this basis alfafa will pay eight per
cent net profit on land valued at
$103.33 per acre.
The fact I that farmers where' irrigation Is not available arc petitioning
for it and are willing to bear the
whole cost of Its installation Ib
tribute to the success of thc irrigation enterprises already established
in Alberta, which include the immense undertaking of tho Canadian
Pacific Railway, the largest irrigntion project on the Americnn continent.

A (/lodern Richard
Coeur de Uon
(By A. K. Wntts.)
In ancient days heroes were . ^rent
magnetic characters by virtue of the
fact that men like Kins Richard instilled the thrill of patriotism into
and through their men by personal,
physical courage and .ndnrrnce, and
led them on to victory although their
followers knew not whnt they were
fighting for.
To-dny the Imperial spirit or sentiment which rules Empires and dominates the world, gor'n-rp from a different source. 1h> Lion Hearted
Richards are not those who swing the
heavy battle axes, nor those who ply
the rifle and cannon, hut are those
who think nnd work incessantly, and
direct the currents of patriotic feeling and encourage the love of justice
nnd fair play, and so make the Brit-
ifh Kmpire the admiration of all
races throughout the world, hence
her permanent strength nnd power,
and the increasing weakness of those
dominated hy autocratic rule. Ths
time is drawing near whan men will
refuse to he driven to slaughter by
so-called Emperors per force, with
despotism behind cannon in front,
and hounded into the honors of war
to satisfy the overweening ambition
of one crazy autocrat wbo desires to
perpetuate his dyn tsty nnd military
tyranny at the expense of untold
millions of lives, whose eflorts if
wisely directed might he engaged in
honest industries and like busy bees
gathering honey, insten.l of spilling
the blood of their fellowmtn and devastating th1 Imds and territories of
their would-be friendly neighbors, besides the waste of thousands of millions of wealth wrung from the sweat
of many millions of half-starved
workers to supply unneceBssary armaments, called into being by one
mad cap autocrat, or modern Nero,
the so-called Kaiser Wilhelm, whose
own people loath his unjust and overbearing instincts and profane egotism, expressed in one sentence—
"Meln self und Gott."
Whnt a contrast the IlrltlHh Kmpire with its millions of volunteers
frum ull races, dom all parts ml the
world, with many great leaders of
".Leonine" character in physical form
and spirit, one of whom Britons nre
proud was torn und nurtured near the
western outpost of the Empire, whore
the shores of the Continent kiss the
PaOlflo Ocean. The one the writer nl-
ludcH to is one the Kim* hath delighted to honor—Blr Richard of British Oolumhifti
The general opinion prevails that
the oltlce of the Premier Is n s'n1-
ci re, that the Mead of the State occupies an ornamental position only,
that hfl rtttlly has n it much to do of
any Importance; that impression
would he changed if the true facts
were known, wh:ch thfl writer con-
11 ders should bo mado known, hence
this emanation caused by practical
observation at dose rnnga with the
Premier and his /Ministers during tbe
past few weeks, since the declaration
of wnr.

League, formation of regiments, addresses encouraging the men, he appears also to act afl Commander-in-
Chief in all kinds of affairs.
One interesting incident showing
the "grent heart," the touch of human feeling, is worthy of special notice: The Premier's ante rooms as
usual were full of persons of various
classes Waiting for interviews, the
writer heard remarks-from some men
as to the calibre of the guns on H.
M. S. Cillingwood, and elicited the
fact that the men were expert ginnery men, termed "gun'layers," that
means, men who train the guns, take
the final sights and fire the naval
monsters of destruction, men whose
training costs the Empire many
thousands per man, which is easily
realized as shell practice with the
big guns costs about $2000.00 per
s-h it. These men belonged to the
Naval Reserve, and owing to circumstances caused by the strenuous financial conditions of tbe times, they
were out of funds and anxious to get
to the fighting line, and lUe most
others in troubles appeared to imagine that the Head of the State
should he the panacea, the cure-ill,
especially for financial diseases; a
wry noble avocation for a Premier
if only possible to put in actual
practice. However, tbeir story was
very interesting and breathed patriotism which tbe writer knew would
appeal tu Sir Richard, and tbat their
tbnnce of obtaining an Interview, seeing the numbers abend, would be
slim thnt day, so sent in u short
Bynopsts of their story and wns Immediately summoned to go in with
the men. Hir Richard crois-cxnmin-

dot of time, the Invest igntion bud
been mnde as promised, the men were
again crofs examined and the decision
quickly given, and the men felt happy. After the men left tbe room tho
Chief remarked, "Bid you not'ee tbey

The Peace Terms
"We shall not Bhcathe the sword,
which we have not lightly drawn, until Belgium recovers in full measure
more than all she has sacrificed; until France is adequately secure
againBt the menace o.' a^gress'on; until the rightB of the smaller nations
of Europe are placed on an unassailable foundation; until the military
domination rif Prussia is fully and
tina.l.y destroyed."
These are the words of Premier
Asquith, at the lord mayor's inaugural banquet in London one day last
week.
Britain's premier says in effect that
there will be no sheathing of the
British sword until the military despotism of Germany is fully and fin-
n»y destroyed.
And the spirit of jnstice-lovfng, liberty-demanding Britons the world
over is tho same. It insists upon
evtn justice for everyone, and cannot
he quenched until th: last Britisher
has heen slain.
The summing-up by the British premier waB vociferously applauded.
Concisely and absolutely the statement makes plain to the world and
to Germany in particular, where
Great Britain stands in this world-
conflict, and where Bhe proposes to
stand at the fn'sh, and having put
her hands to the plow there will be
no turning back.—Creston Review.
