(Jn taking the chair Dr. King eloquently outlined the part that Britain
must play In the present crisis and
the duty Canada owed to thti empire
as an Integral part. He stated tliat
the present conflict wus not a war ot
conquest on the part of Britain, but
one ln which she must maintain her
honor. Cranbrook was sending troops
to engage in tbe war and at meetings
held by some of the citizens it had
been decided to raise a patriotic fund
which would be kept for patriotic purposes until such time as it was decided wiiat would be done. He called on
Mr. Geo. Stevenson, the secretary for
the committee, to further outline the
plan for rattling funds,
Mr. Stevenson said tliat the committee had decided that the oeat
method of raising the money waa to
give an open-air dance and entertafn-
ceive them and inspected his collection of curios, most of which arc of
Indian origin. The walls of bis den
ire completely hidden by this Interesting collection.

J. S. Wilson, of the C.I'.R. department of natural resources, was in
I Bull River during the lire which rav-
; aged the mountains recently and tells
some  thrilling  tales  of  narrow  escapes of tlie men there.
At the tirst outbreak two huudred
[ men fought for 4>> hours subduing th*
1 flames und returned to their camps
. satisfied that all was safe, but a few
hours afterwards the alarm was given
i lint the lire had broken out and the
lighting was recommenced.
!    The fire wus gotten practically un-
j der control after soma twenty hours,
| but a high wind then sprung up which
made efforts nt control futile.
|    With tremendous rapidity the flames
spread  and the  mountain  side  was
soon    u   raging     furnace.     Flames
sprang hundreds of feet Into the air
und tho roar of the burning timbers
could be heard for miles.
The high wind drove the fire rapidly before lt, and the men who had
previously been  fighting the  flames
were forced to flee for their lives.
The men from two camps made a
quick get-away over the mountains
into Fernie, after und* rgolng many
narrow escapes, while four hundred
more were trapped In camp No. 6 and j
were only reeued after men from Fer- [
nle  pluckily cut  roads  through   to
Mr.  Wilson  nnd  his  fellow  camp
men also had some narrow escapes
and were forced to take refuge in tho
river, where they were held prisoners
for eight hours.
A large number of horses met horrible deaths from the flames, but a
number were saved by taking them
into the river.    While in tho water
the animals showed peculiar sagacity
in following the actions of the men.
When the men took to the water most
of thc horses followed quietly, and
when there at once lay down when
the men did, but if a man rose the
horses would at once rise and lay
down again when the man did.
Practically everything in the camps
was destroyed, the survivors only saving thc clothes they stood up in.
Many  timber   limits   were  utterly
destroyed, a number of camps were
burned out, and 10,000,000 feet of cut
timber is known    to have been destroyed.

Herman HcJrmeir. Canadian German.
Arrested   fur   Attempting   to
Blow up Big CJML Bridge
If military law prevailed in Leth-
| bridge at the present time, it Is the
; opinion of the police and military
authorities that there would have been
a casualty to report this morning.
Just Ht dusk last night a man giving
tlie name of Herman Welrmcir, was:
arrested near the big bridge, and he |
is suspected of being connected with
what looks like a concerted attempt
: to blow the trestle Into smithereens.
; So strong ls the evidence against
him, in fact, that If military law pre-1
1 vailed, It Is likely that he would hav. j
heen backed up against a brick wall;
and shot, says the Lethbridge Her-
Ijite yesterday the Chinook Collier-1
les reported the theft of thirty-one ;
, kegs of black blasting powder from 1
| llieir magazine, to Inspector Lindsay
j of the Mounted Police. Four men
! were sent by Inspector Lindsay post
I haste to thc vicinity of the bridge and
In a deserted shack between the big
I C.P.R. bridge and the traffic bridge,
'■ twenty-three kegs of black blasting
! powder were discovered.
j Sergt.-Major Humby, tn command
j of five red coats, and four members of
the 2Mb battery, hantened to the scene
' last night. The Sergeant-Major cueh-
: ed his men near the empty dwelling
j und Just us darkness closed hi, a man
i was seen wading across the river,
shoulder deep in the water, coming to-
I ward thc shack. As he emerged from
> the river and started to approach the
j house, he was placed under arrest and
[ taken to the barracks.
Welrmelr was searched, nnd a burglar's outfit was found on him.   He is
held on a charge under the criminal i
code, that of being In possession of I
burglar's tools, and hus been remand* i
ed for eight days.   The police author!- j
lies state that there Is enough evidence against the man to warrant taking him out to be shot, but the only
charge at present against him Is that
of carrying promiscuous tools.
The powder was confiscated, and Is
under a heavy guard. The police
maintained their guard last night, under Instructions from Inspector Lindsay; thc battery men remained stationed at the trestle, and the C.P.R.
guard was doubled.
Everything points to a concerted attempt on the bridge, and the man will
bo held until the matter Is thoroughly
Investigated. The powder was stolen
last Friday night, but the theft was
not discovered until yesterday, when
the magazine was checked up.
No trace of the other eight kegs has
been found.
The powder was used ln blasting ln
tlie mine, and each keg contains 25
pounds. The missing powder has
not yet been Identified with that discovered on the river bottom, but lt Is
of the same composition, and Is done
up In similar containers.
A heavy guard wlll be maintained
hereafter, every hour of the day and
night in the vicinity of the high bridge.
Welrmelr will not talk, but states
that he ls a Canadian of German descent.

Seized British Merchantmen
Inspired utterances in Tokio express
regret at the inability to maintain
neutrality, but say that Great Britain,
the ally of Japan, is compelled to defend herself against the aggressions
of Qermany. Moreover, it is pointed
out that Qermany is making preparations day and ni* ht at Kiao-Cl.au.
wliere it is storing provisions, whit.
Its warships are scouring the seas of
eastern Asia to the great detriment of
commerce and that it** converted
cruisers are seising Knglish merchant
vessels. Such action, it is argued, are
directly calculated to disturb the
peace of eastern Asia and accordingly, after full and Crank communication with Britain. Japan has found
herself compelled to send an ultimatum to Germany.
To Remove Peace DMurbrr*
The ultimatum is as follows:
"We consider it highly important
and necessary ln the present situation
to take measures to remove the
causes of disturbance of pecce in the
far east and to safeguard the general
interests as contemplated by the
agreement of alliance between Japan
and Great Britain. In order to secure
.. firm and enduring peace In eastern
Asia thc establishment of which ls the
aim of the said agreement, the Imperial Japanese government sinc**re!y
belleves It to be its duty to give the
advice to the Imperial government of
Germany to carry out the following
two  propositions:
First, to withdraw immediately from
Japanese and Chinese waters, German
men of war and armed vessels of a!!
kinds nnd to disarm at once those
which cannot be so withdrawn.

"Second, to deliver on a date not
later than September 16th to the imperial Japanese authorities, witiiout
condition or compensation, the entire
leased territory of KtOO-Cbau with a
view to the eventual restoration of tiie
same to China.
"The imperial Japanese government

when   the   time   for
Canada stands practically immune
from the physical menace to war; our
;ields are giving their wealth to the
harvester, and our other resources
are yielding their bounty in greater \
proportions than ever. Wealth pro-1
ductlon is proceeding, and the opportunities for still greater primary
production are not diminishing. This :
continent, including Canada, will pro-
lit largely and speedily by the changes
in the world's currents of trade during the war. Many of our factories
will llnd demands upon them stimulated because of restriction placed upon
the productive machinery of Europe
by the exigencies of war, and though
for a time in diminished quantities, a
l'air proportion of Britain's available
capital will conn* to Canada for investment. I 'nder the circumstances,
therefore, th"1 one preat essential to
keep business moving Is confidence,
and Canada, probably of ull nations
of the world, has least excuse to offer
lor any lack of It.
"In thc unprecedented and critical
situation that exists," says Sir Qeo.
Parish, "It is of the greatest importance that everyone should endeavor
■ to act as If great events were not impending,    Wcre conlldence  seriously

; anee that, as far as possible, the

I osslble, the productive power and
I tho income of the country.
"But for this to bo accomplished,
the situation must be faced with
courage and confidence on the part of
everyone. Investors must continue
, to invest, bankers must continue to
lend, the stock exchange must continue to deal, and everyone according
' to his ability must endeavor to work
, hard In order that individual incomes,
and therefore the income of the whole
nation, may be maintained at the
highest possible level.
"A little ovor a century ago, when
, the nation was at war with Xapoleon,
j its income was a very small one, being
! less than one-eighth of what it is at
present, and in a comparatively small
: space of time the British people succeeded In raising about £1,000,000,000
of money for war purposes, and so
: great was their confidence and courage that at the ond of the great war,
which severely taxed their resources,
■ they were stronged and wealthier than
they had been at the beginning."
Canada's  natural  store  is as yet
' barely touched. From any temporary
lull In our progress, from whatever
cause, wo can, therefore, recover our-
; selves   more  quickly   than   did  the

necessary than courage in the maintenance   of  the   industry  and  com-

buccosb that followed their efforts.

Mrs Poster of the Baptist church,
Ferula, and Cranbrook was represented by Mrs. A. A. MacKinnon and

The program was of excellent order.
Each day at 8.HO song service was followed by Bible study by Kev. Hender-
son, of New Westminster, tking for
his topic "The Social Message of the
Sermon on the Mount."
Hr. Sinclair, of Winnipeg, a man of
large sympathies, whose life In the
Yukon has added much to his experiences, was always full of liis sub-
loeta, which dealt with the lending
prohtema of the day.
Or. Myers, of Toronto, a specialist
In Sunday School work, dealt with
nrthods of good, teaching and training of lhe child. The discussions were
very enthusiastic.
Mrs, Myers each day delighted the
school with her beautiful solos and
guitar accompaniments,
Eveiy moment was improved, even
at Intermission. Ur. spencer In his
cheerful manner rallied the school
ont on the green for physical training.
Afternoon was given to wholesome
recreation and so the school had the
association and companionship of congenial workers, and as a matter ot

this trick they crushed France In the

fell In terrifying surprise on the
French army at Sedan, when the
French generals imagined them leagues away and the French army In
perfect security.
French Taken by Surprise in the War
of is;o
"The fact Is." Victor Hugo admitted, "our army was exhausted, and
yet It had marched by short stages.
The soldiers had nearly lost the capacity for marching. For instance, one
corps, made only six leagues (eighteen
miles) lu one day. Meanwhile the
German army, controlled by autocratic commanders nnd goaded on like
Xerxes' ten thousand, made marches
of 14 leagues (42 miles) fn 15 hours,
and so hemmed In the sleeping
Frenchmen and took them by surprise. It was thi* custom for the
French to be surprised. General
Fuilly was surprised at Beaumont.
During the day the soldiers took their
guns to pieces to clean them, they
slept that night without cutting the
bridges that gave passage to the
enemy and they likewise neglected to
destroy the bridges at Mouxon and
llazellles. Before daylight on September 1 an advance guard of seven
battalions, commanded by General
Schulz, and he made sure ot the junction of the army of the Meuse with
the Koyal Guard."
It seems impossible that such surprises can be repeated in the great
war that is now shaking the contln'
ent of Europe. The French have not
forgotten the terrible lossen of 1870;

A copy uf the "Act for the Protection of Certain Animals and Birds,"
was given to tlie correspondent.   The
following extract is worthy of note:
Sec. 45 (b) Bays: "For shooting, killing, or taking any deer or inniiutuiu-
goat, etc., or any gntm* birds in* fur-
hearing animals in violation of this
Act, of not less than twenty-live dollars or more than one hundred dollars
for each animal or bird."   From this
It will bo seen tluit in the recent Waldo
cuse that the magistrate could do no
, other than  line the possessor of tlie
j fawn.   Of course it was hard on tlu
, poor chap owing to the extenuating
; circumstances.    No  reflections   wore
east on tlie magistrate, the constable,
or the game warden when the cuse
was reported  in tliis column,   .Inle.
