Sunday on account of a disturbance
among some foreign employees of the
Yahk Lumber Co.. who were drunk
and disorderly and threatened to do
violence to the Chinese cook. Constable Walch arrested Hill Bovll and

Peace It, I,, T, Galbraith and A. B.
Fenwick. Bovll was fined ?20 aud
costs, or two months and Susca $"■ and
costs, the fines being paid in both
cases. A third offender who escaped
In the darkness Sunday, was arrested
later and drew a fine of $5 and costs,
which was paid.
On Feb. 9th, hum, a Chinaman, was
fined $7fi or three mouths with bard
labor for supplying an Indian named
Patrfek with intoxicants. Tho presiding magistrates were Messrs. McVittie and Fenwick. and they have decided to deal much more severely with
the next offender. They are determined to stop this traffic with the
Indians, nnd the next one caught is
likely to get the limit.

A very successful Vuluntino Roeinl

McFarlane occupied the chair and a
splendid concert was given by local
talent. Walter Walsh, the returned
soldier, was one of those taking part
In lhe progrnm and was given a regular ovation on his appearance. He
spoke briefly hut very plainly or the
Cranbrook hoys he had run across In
the hospitals over there and thanked
the people for (bell- kindness to himself and his comrades. After the program refreshments were served, and
the OVenlng finished up with dancing,

Institute   Members   Heat   Same   Plain
Talk on the Necessity ol Chang.
lug tlie Present System of
Shipping Potatoes   Hints on
tlie Care ef Cream,
Ther. was a gratifying turn-out at
tin* meeting of the Farmers Instiiuie
on Saturday afternoon, and those present wen* well repaid for the time
spent. Two splendid papers were given, the first on Marketing B. C. Potatoes In the Eastern markets, mid the
second on the Care of Cream from the
Cow to the Creamery.
There was considerable dlscilBBlon
on Gopher Poisons, and il was decided to get a supply of the various
brands which the Qovernment ia offering for experimental poisons. The
mutter of obtaining plumping powder
through the Institute was also brought
up and apparently quite a quantity
will he wanted in Hits district this
year. Members of the Institute are
given a very material reduction from
Hie regular price by buying In certain
quantities and a number will avail
themselves of the opportunity.
Mr. Geo Hutchcroft gave a very Instructive and interesting address on
the marketing of II. C. Potatoes in
Ontario, as learned from bis experience last summer In disposing of potatoes from this province. He did not
mince matters but told the audience
plainly that through the lack of inspection and grading and the shipping of poor and dirty potatoes not
suited to the demands this province
bad gaimd a bad reputation which
could only be overcome by united and
earnest, effort on the part of the producers combined with government cooperation in the way of Inspection and
standard grading. The Eastern markets deim-nd quality as well as quantity, aud It is much easier to dispose
of good quality potatoes at a high
price than lt Is to dispose of inferior
potatoes at a low price. The consumer demands a white potato free from
scab, of uniform size, with shallow
eyes, and or tight dry texture. The
shape and size Is Important; the best
size is between three and four IncheB
in length, of a flat elliptical or oval
shape, and the fewer eyes the better.
It Is always necessary to ship clean
potatoes and to have tbe sacks clean
and nf a standard size of DOlbs, one
and a half bushels, to the sack.
Mr. Hutchcroft favored the shipping
in bulk, under present conditions at
least, and have them inspected and
sacked when they reach their destination. He urged the adoption of a
standard for potatoes, along the same
plan as apples and other fruits bave
to conform to. and government inspection. There was big money iu potatoes at the present prices, $200 an
acre being easy for a good yield shlp-
plng No. 1 potatoes to Ontario at last
year's prices, and .Mr. Hutchcroft believed that the demand and prices
will continue good for this year at
least, and probably for several years.
But he emphasized that the present
conditions would never be improved
(ill government inspection and standard   grading   was   adopted.
After somo interesting discussion
ou this paper a committee was appointed with Father Lambot as chairman to gather Information as to the
quantity of potatoes shipped from this
centre nnd report to next meeting in
order that a resolution may be sent
on to the government urging them to
take action.
The paper by Mr. Amerman on
the. Care of the Cream from the Cow
to the Creamery contained many good
points, which we are only able to deal
with briefly. Incidental to the care
of the Cream Is the production of
good cream, and preliminary to the
production and care Is the establishment of good henlthy cows In the
dairy, pure clean food, good water and
Mint tary conditions of tlie cow stable
of the highest order, and last hut not
least, gentle trenttnent of the cows.
.Never forget thnt every cow In the
stable ought to be treated as a lady,
and the dairy-man who so treats his
cows will find that tbey respond readily to sueh treatment.
The Importance of the water supply
or the cows was strongly emphasized.
Milk contains S7 per cent water and
the greatest of rare should be taken
to insure clean pure water, and ln
the cold weather the water should
he slightly warmed. Allowing cows
to drink lee cold water Ih very Injurious. The use of a good separator
will Improve the results obtained from
the milk, but the operator must
thoroughly understand bis machine
and follow Instructions. Cleanliness
should be the watchword of every
dairy-man In every department, and
there la no utensil In uso in the dairy
which demands greater attention In
this regard than the separator. If
taken apart and thoroughly sralded
and clenned Immediately nfter each
separating It Is an easy matter to
keop It in a thoroughly clean and
sweet condition.

A letter from the Salvation Army
asking for a grant was laid over till
next meeting. The Engineer gave a
lengthy and voluminous report on the
work or bis department, dealing at
length with the question of frozen
water-pipes and hydrants. He has had
92 thaw-outs, 35 of which have been
charged to private parties; the total
cost has been $244.46, the amount received from the private thaw-outs,
$105.00, leaving a net cost to the city

As others see us Is a useful correct*
ivo of our own notions. An analysis
of Canada's prospects of completing
her promised army of 500,000 either
by conscription or without it. appears
in a leading New York newspaper.
It is remarkable for its outspokenness,
if somewhat exaggerated In tone.
lt says: "Nobody dreads conscription more than Sir Robert Horden and
his  Cabinet  Ministers,    it  probably
would defeat its own purpose.   Fifty
thousand Canadians already havo fled
over the border to llvo In the United
Statoa until tin* war is over, frightened oul oi Canada by thc mere talk
of conscription, and tho i xodus is still
fn progrcs.   The tiling Canada
loast  afford   to   Iobo  is   man-powor,
But the chief menace of conscription
would   bo   in   its   effect   on   Quebec
That it would moan tho rebellion nf
that province, with Its moro thnn
000,000 French Catholics, nnd a civil
war In Canada is the firm belief of
many    serious-minded,    worth-whlh
men of Canada, both French and English.   Quebec is not pro-British; she
is even less pro-Franco.   And she i-tt
much less pro-Canada than she is pro*
Quebec.   Sin* is for Quebec, tho Roman
Catholic Church, and the French language first, last, and nll tlu* timo, and
nothing outside matter's, unless Qui
bee considers it hostile to her or hi
Church or her langunge.   Then si
wants   to   light.    Tiiere  are   Englis
speaking Conservatives who admit nil
this, and still suy: "Let us have cot
Bcrlptlon and n civil war too if nocei
snry, and then show Quebec her plat
ln this Dominion once and fnr all, bi
cause now Is the best, time to do it
There are others who scout the idr
of rebellion and urge conscription on
tho ground that It would not lose tin-
Conservatives any strength iu Quebec
for they have none there to lose, am
that It would strengthen the party in
power everywhere else in the country.
Tliey seem to leave nut of account the
Germans and the Austrlans and the
thousands of Americans who have
moved into Canada to live, but who
would have no relish for fighting In
How much truth tiiere is in this
analysis tho reader can decide for
himself. But its value is the light In
which the Canadian people and our
political parties show themselves t
an outside and not unfriendly ol:
Amid all the peace talk flying
around the world during the pust few
weeks, the hard fact is apparent, says
tlie Winnipeg Telegram, that there Is
no possibility of ending the war without at least one more campaign, and
probably two. The Allies will bo very
fortunate indeed if Germany Is vanquished by the close of the coming
So much hns been said about food
conditions In Germany that there Is
danger of getting au exaggerated
fdea of this phase of the situation.
That thoro is privation, with consequent impatience, among the civilian
population of tho Teutonic empires,
need not be disputed. Hut so long as
It does not effect the army it will
have llttle practical Influence, The
death of thousands of young children
docs not lesson the immediate fighting strength of a nation. There Is
nothing to bo gained by cherishing
a false hope of compelling Germany
to lay down her arms through starvation. It may eome to that at lnsl,
but no such finish is anywhere In sight
ns yot.
Siie must be beaten on the field of
battle, Can this be done with stif-
flcient thoroughness during the next
fow months? It is possible, hut it 1:
the toughest Job ever faced by mnn
kind. Thoro are still millions of German soldiers. Spring will find them
fortified on every frontier with a new
and presumably abundant supply of
guns and ammunition. Tliey wilt
stand mostly on the defensive, aiming
to do as much damage as possible
While waiting for lhe .Allies to become
tired enough to quit.
Tlm Allies, on the other hand, will
endeavor to drive tlie enemy from
these defensive lines ami force hlti'
to fight In tlie open nr lo retreat.
Obviously the process is one whieh
may achieve sudden success or may

Should war follow, what could the
I'nited Stales do? In lhe first place
It could lend naval assistance to lhe
Allies. It could co-operate in running
down Teutonic submarines, li could
aid in keeping open Uie lams ul travel
between this country ami Allied Eu
rope. It could participate in naval
operations directed ai Heligoland and
the Baltic Seu, This is neither a prediction nor a declaration thai those
things would he dont*. However, having a Heet which very fortunately is
In a certain stale of preparedness, this
country could do a number of things
on the seas long before ii could participate In Allied army operations.
It would take the United States from
two to three years to mobilize, oqulp
ami train an army big enough to make
any Impression upon tin- Western
front. In fact, the wur might be over
before America was iu a position to
throw  any  considerable   number  of
troups Into Europe. As has been
made painfully apparent by tin* Mexican crisis, this country cannot span*
any regular cninr.iamls, unless prepared again to call on! the National
Guards to protect tlu* border during
the period when volunteers were iu

even if war he declared, ever will take

This crisis comes upon us us a country

.Many Valuable Ideas Itrmighl Forward
nt Sucfal Service Conference
The subject of "Economic tte-Con-
Btructlon After the War" engaged the
attention of a very representative
gathering at the meeting of tin* Social Service Conference Inst Thursday
evening. Naturally the majority of Hie
speakers gravitated to tlie question of
the returned soldier and iu the main
agreed that the solution of lhe problem to a large extent would he found
In the opening up of large additional
farming areas and placing men on
these  under  proper  supervision.
The chairman, Itev. W. ll. Bridge,
wns the first speaker, taking for liis
subject "Immigration and Colonization," and explained the condition of
affairs along this line which had existed in the past, and outlined what he
believed would be the condition in the
future. He believed the shortage of
tonnage would prevent any great rush,
but nevertheless the soldiers would return and while many will he re-absorbed into their former occupations
many will not. ami it will he the duty
of the country to see that they are not
left to shift for themselves, The prosperity and future greatness of a country is based on the proportion of its
productive Inhabitants, and tlie basis
of all production is land, therefore tlie
greater percentage of people on the
land the greater the stable prosperity
of the country. The aim must therefore he to put people on the laud.
Mr. Bridge then proceeded to lake up
the reasons for land desertion in the
past, and what was needed to niter the
old condition of affairs, taking up the
recommendations of the Returned Soldiers' Aid Commission of British Columbia in regard to providing farm
lands for settlement by returned soldi era.
Judge Ityan gave a most interesting
talk on the Natural Resources of lhe
country, devoting bis attention io the
wonderful mineral deposits awaiting

same subject but devoted his attention
to the agricultural end of the resources and criticized the luck of faltl

the announcement that general convention of the Fanners of It. C, is
called at Victoria for Feb. 10 and 17th.
1917, ror organization purposes. A
preparatory constitution has been submitted tn tlie different institutes, associations and otlier bodies of farmers
in the J'ruvince and a general call is
issued to all allied interests to lend a
hand to set The B. C. Farmers Union afloat.
An officer of Hie local Institute in

constitution to lay before the Institute
on Sal urday so that we may have more
to say on this in the near future. Al-
belt the time seems to have come to'
line up with the other provinces and
also tn get representation on The
( nnadinn Council of Agriculture. Let|
us bear our part.
How bard to drag some men up.
Consider the following from   Heard's
The  Pure-bred und  the Scrub
There are men so anxious to have;
tin! stock raiser use a pure-bred bull
Instead of a scrub tliat they have given
away many pure-bred bulls.   The late
Mr. .1. .1. Hill did this years ago on a
rather large scale and others have]
done the same thing to a limited ex-
ti nt.   Recently, Mr. Win. L. Saunders,
Pros, of the Cadillac Produce Co. has,
offered to replace, pound for pound,
evory grade or scrub bull in Wexford;
-   unty,   Michigan,   with   u   registered;
biill.   The transaction Is to be approved by the Wexford County Farm Bureau,   and   milSl   be   confined   tn   two
breeds, nawely. Shorthorns and Holsteins.    This is a very liberal offer of
Mr.   Saunders,   hut   to   hi-   effective   It
miisl be limited to more than the requirement of nel oc ling om* of two
breeds. There are men who have no
appreciation nf good blood and tlu"
placing of well bred animals in their
land* If like giving a man uf llttle
education a hook of some noted author.'
He   will   nol   appreciate   11   or   will   he
moke auy better use of it than he
would of n dime novel.
Mr Hill reaped disappointing remits iu giving away pure-bred hulls
to farmers living along his railroad,
for most of these animals fell into the
hands of men who did not appreciate
them, Tlie effects of this good blood i
were  entirely  lost, because   Mr.   Hill:
sowed seed on Infertile ground. Three
years ago a larmer iu Wisconsin, owning a scrub hord of dairy cows, was
given a pure-bred bull thut he might
Improve his herd. When the progeny
of this pure-bred bull was obi enough
to breed, this farmer used a scrub bull
although he was offered another purebred bull for nothing. Another cast.'
Is or a man who was offered the use
of a pure-bred bull and he asked the j
man who was generous enough to
mako him the offer, "How much will'
you give me to keep bim?"
Wo cite theso instances nut to discourage Mr. Saunders, or those who
havi* similar Interesl iu tli*- welfare!
of those who keep scrub herds, but to!
emphasize the Importance of exorcising somo kind of care in the placing
of pure-bred hulls.    If a man dors not
appreciate good,blood, has no desire to
improve his cattle ami liia standards
of keeping thorn, ii Is o waste or
money ami gonorosity In glvo Uu m

ranchers tu improve their herds. Improve! Forsooth, the phrase is n joke
when applied to such methods.

Cattle nnd Western Bunks.
Fanner's Advocate;
Is il not tiuie that tlio financial interests of lho country wero waking up
iu the fact that tremendous assets are
leaving the country every day. 1 refer to tho enormous run of young cattle to tlie Winnipeg market during the
last two months; this week broke all
records between 11.000 ami 12,000 cattle being on the market. There is a
very small percentage of this run beef,
the majority being young cows, heifers
calves and yearlings ami two-year-old
steers. Tho reason, of courso, is tiiat
tlio wheat crop over the largest part
of the country was destroyed and the
larmer has to sell everything he has
to meet his obligations, lie has lots
of feed, fodder never was more plentiful; he knows from past Sx-jorloneo
that it is useless going to tho hank for
a loan to enable him to retain his
young cattle. The heads of these
banks preach mixed fanning. One
of these banks sent nut some timo ago
a small parcel of seed corn to all of
ils customers anil I suppose then
thought it bad done a great work in
starting tlu* farmer on the right road.
The branch banks scattered through
the country aro manned hy young fi 1-
lows who know as much about agriculture as they do about astronomy.
Their main function is to receive deposits and act as collectors for machine companies, etc., hut as for helping
the farmer through a trying time there
is no assistance.
I know ono farmer who was pressed
for $25 last summer, went to tin* bank
and told tho manager he wanted that
much and had $2500 worth of stock mi
farm. He did not get it. 1 have talked
to men from thc South who are buying
these cuttle und they have asked me
why tho farmers wore selling this
young stuff. I told Hum Hie reason;
they have all told me that bankers lu
the south look ou live stock as the
best HHset a man can havc and are:
very liberal In encouraging the feed-;
lng aud breeding of same. Ninety polecat, of the young stuff is going south
whicli shows up bad for the Canadian j
banks. In conclusion, would say that |
as far as being any benefit to agrlcul-j
tun* is concerned, the Canadian banks
are the poorest on earth.
Tho above letter shows a lamentable state of affairs at a crisis like the
present when every farm should bo
