Mr, J. P. Fink, ot tliis city, has
brought forward a suggestion which,
we believe, should appeal to the various Merchants' Associations nnd
Hoards of Trade throughout British
Columbia. It is predicted that on account of tlu* greatly increased acre
age and thu heavy yield now almost
assured on the prairie this year tluit
there will be a great scarcity of lubor
for the harvest, especially as so
many nun have gone to the front.
Mr. Fink's proposal Is tills: That
every merchant In British Columbia
spare one of tlieir regular employees
for the few weeks of the harvest to
assist iu saving Die grain. That the
employer insist that the employee assist in the harvest, holdiug his situation for liis return. If every mer-
ehant in Hritish Columbia would do
this there would be a largo amount of
labor available and thu situation
might ho saved without recourso to
the American labor market. The work
would bo in the nature of an outing
for tiie men going aud thc Canadian
labor market will not be overcrowded
with men from the United States. Tiie
season is short now and If this sug-
gestlon is to be nctud upon it will be
up to every public organization in
the province to get busy at once uud
ascertain the available supply provided In tliis manner and the information laid before tlie prairie provinces
Immediately, in order that men may

IVrey  Adlard Tells How Canadians
Curried the Buy and Covered
hTemscbes With Glory
Dr. Coulter, Deputy Postmnater-
Goneral, is very much In the public
eye these days. Ho revels in regulations. The war taxes gave hlm the
opportunity to enjoy his element.
Evory week at least, a new regulation
or an explanation of It is issued
When ho can't develop a new regulation lie issues an explanation of an explanation. Wo believe we are now
nt tin* explanation of the explanation
of the explanation iu several cases.
We can't keep up. The Postmasters
are giving up in despair. Kmployees
of corporations aud other business
men are wondering whether they
ought to vote Tor a government that
permits such irritating methods. The
people of Canada are now experiencing the potty Irritations to which the
newspaper publishers have been subjected ever since a small village politician, with no practical experience,
was placed over the heads of hundreds of old and capable officials
Many of his regulations arc so absurd uud unworkable, that often after
repeated amendments, they are withdrawn.
The latest explanation of an ex-,
phuintioti whicli Is sent out from Ottawa, reaffirms that "under no clr-
oumstanuQB will the war stamps Issued hy the Inland Revenue Department he accepted In payment of the
war tax or other charges on letter
postcards, postal notes or post office
orders." It Is further announced
that to pay the wur tax postage
stamps may be afflxeed to checks,
hills of exchange, promissory notes,
express orders, patent medicines, perfumery, wines nnd champagne.
Dr. Coulter might now rise and explain why the country should have
been put to-the expense, and the busl-
mny he used for any purpose for
standing nnd using two sets of stamps.
Apparently ordinary postage stamps
muy eb used for uny purpose for
which a war tax stamp is required.
Why therefore, should there bo any
Inland Revenue stamps?
Was it not Mr, White, Minister of
Finance, who told Canadians this
was the tlmo for economies? He
should interview the Deputy Post-
master-Oeneral who ims unnecessarily increased the expenses of the Post
Ofllce Department and the mailing
departments nf business concerns by
fifty per cent. Tho war tax of an
extra cent on letters, is being paid
by mi extra stamp. This means that

Sir: It must be a source of pleasure
to all loyal Canadian and Brltlsii citizens to note the Bplendld response to
tlie call for recruits in connection
with tho formation of tho 54th battalion from the Kootenay and Boundary districts, each and every town
nobly doing well. A finer lot of soldiery looking men was never collected together than the body of recruits now joining the 54th. Thc taking of the battalion to Vernon Is not
dealing fairly with the districts from
which are drawn these capable, loyal
and willing fellows who are offering
themselves, with nothing more thnn a
sense of duty to their King and country.

Into the whole matter of the recruiting, not only with the 54th, for wo arc
fully tiwure of tho haste shown In
connection with the former contingents. These wero rushed off either
to the coast or some other place, that
may have In several Instances ju'it as
well have remained at the points from
which they recruited for thc accommodation was excellent for drilling of
small squads; nnd It tho partisans
had not had so many of their relatives and partisans to be placed to
ollicersliips, we may naturally suppose
the recruiting of the Mth battalion
would have easily began long before
ft did. But R. P. Green, M.P., for Koo
tenay and similar caliber of M. P.'s
desired to make sure that their partisans and relatives were flrst gazetted.
The member for Kootenay certainly
has done nobly for his relatives and
partisan friends. His son appointed
paymaster, with the rank ot captain;
| Lieutenant Garland Fostor, who Joined
the second contingent a private, went
into training for a lieutenantshlp nnd
failed twice to pass, yet he retains the
title, and also the pay, after his failure to pans the examination.   He was
glVen a Job to make an exchange in
the call fur recruits ln connection with
the cnretnkershtp ot the Nelson drill
hall some two months ago.   Since he
arranged that strenuous affair he has
merely  "loafed,"  employing  himself
with giving out the fact that he would
be the recruiting officer and when that
was  through  he  would  be gazetted
quartermaster of the 54th, and it has
all come to be, we regret to say only
too true.   Then we havo another arrival only tbe other duy in the person of a young man, who has just left
school, a nephew of R. F. Green, M.
P., who iu luture will bo known    us
Lieutenant Green of the 54th.   These
three are ull more or less incapable
of lining the positions they have   received appointment to through political pull.    It Is u shnme uud an insult to tin* many old and experienced
soldiers   who   hnvn   given   up   everything (hey liave for the sake of doing
their duty In the defence of our liberties.   When wo see such contemptible Interfering wltli the appointment
of officers by tho-member for Koo-,
tenay and others who, through clr-
cunistnnces,  are   In  a  position     to;
have the privilege of influencing tlie
minister of militia   in such   serious!
matters.   Canada   looked upon   the I
dirty work carried on through these]
same channels of Influence when the'
grafting in connection with thu pur-:
chasing of supplies came to light with ]
disgust and resentment, and Hon. R. j
L, Horden, the premier, received full
credit for his manly action with those1
who were found to have used their
positions of WL P. to carry on a clear
every duy steal.   Yes, tiiat was    bad
enough, hut it appears these leeches
are at their old game, hut it is a far
more serious business tliis time. For
an      inn jiiuli lied     officer     appointed
through their influence may be   the
means through which may of our loyal
fellows may he led into a death trap,
and oul of which no escape would likely be possible, If it should be left   in
the hands of these incnpables who are
now beiug "Fostered" on tlie 54th battalion.  The superior officers should be
given the power to refuse these useless appendages, for it is only through
tho work of the men thut the officer
in muny cases will bo able to judge I
of uny man's capability to become the
leader of men.   Especially is this the
ease in tliis war, when we are brought
face to face with tiie fact tliat many
of those who only n few montlis ago
left for the front and today nre burled
on a foreign soil.    It is a fact that
a great portion of the men today that
have joined make up ln greater pro-
portion of experienced men than any
former contingent.   Then why should!
the officer in command be entirely ig-
nored, in so many instances ln tlie!
mutter of appointments?   Surely it Is ■
not tliat the officer in command is In
league with these disloyal men   who
are   called   representatives   of   the
people.   If not why is it thut no complaint has  been  made  against these
partisan M, P.'s nefarious acts?    We
said   these  disloyal  men,  and  what
else can  we think or say, when we
know the mean dirty work tliey are
doing, and when they lose sight of tlie
fact, thc responsibility they are assuming when they stoop to the   accomplishing uf tlie possibility of our
fellow citizens, sons, husbands, fath-
to be officered by such Inexperienced nnd altogether unsuitable class
of men just because they ure sons und
nephews, also partisans of these members of parliament.    Disloyal, to my
mind, is not strong enough.   One redeeming tiling is that the officer in
oniniiiiid will be able to place these
pots where they belong whenever the
battalion leaves Canada without fear
or favor of the M. P.'s.   May God pro-
t   our   noble   boys   from   harm

u hunch of politicians.

This is the title of the first war pictures taken on the firing line. Thc
pictures represent the first scenes of
actual fighting brought to America.
Tbey wero taken on the Belgian
battlefields during the months of September and October by Edwin F.
Welgle, staff photographer of the
Chicago Tribune, whose work In this
connection is muklng hlm fumous.
■crimps the most important feature
Is the fact that they were the only
motion pictures which were authorized by the Belgian government. Joseph Medlll Paterson. of tbo Chicago
Tribune, made nn exclusive arrangement with the Belgian government
whereby fifty per cent of the profits
from these pictures will be turned
over to the Belgian Bed Cross for
Belgian sufferers, and tlm** permission
was obtained which had been refused
to hundreds of persons and firms who
sought to photograph on (in* firing
line, Tbe plcturea constitute four of
the most exciting reels over reviewed.
Heel 1 portrays Antwerp. Hie "City
of Sorrows," showing the great Notre
Dame Cathedral nnd a panorama view'
of Antwerp, also tbe pontoon bridge
over the Hiver Scheldt, over which the
British and Belgian armies and thel
entire population of Antwerp, mini-
b'-ring 350.000, made their escape:
when the Germans shelled and burned
the city. In succeeding reels the city,
of Termonde Is reproduced, Including
the fighting which occurred In and
about the city remarkably well. An '
Idea of the great Interest these pictures possess can be obtained from
the fact that the city of Termonde hnd
a population of 60,000 before the war
and that when Welgle wns ohtnlnfng
his views immediately following the
attack only twenty buildings remain"!
Tho battle of Alost followed by the
battle of Aorschot and the battle of
Mallncs are also depleted remarkably
well. Scenes of trench digging, of
machine gnus In operatiou, of Bel
gians on the firing line being shot and
lated being carried off on hospital
motor trucks are all brought out vividly.
In reel three the flooding of the
Lierre Is shown. This occurred when
tho Belgians blew up their own dykes
to drown the incoming German* The
capture of Antwerp is likewise jx>r-
truyed, including the burning of the
city. In the lust reel some of the
fiercest fighting of the European war
is brought out Just as It occurred.
The Chicago Tribune's staff photographer was within fifty feet of this
bloody warfare when the pictures
were made. Out of a little group of Infantrymen, among whom Welgle was
nt work, eight are shown us they full
dead or wounded In three or four
minutes. The photographer with re-
markable courage stood his ground
until all were forced to retreat. At
another point the llelginn Infantry is
shown fighting Its wny to the front
After the Belgians hnd advanced a
hundred yards u Herman shell tan
be seen striking a small bouse, Mowing it into pieces,
The pictures wind up with the eep-
tare of Antwerp and a tremendously
fmpreaeive flight of the most unfortunate Belgian refugees Into Holland. Al-
together they constitute the only moving pictures of actual fighting ever
brought to this country, und because
of the existing contract with the Belgian government—the only motion
pictures which will be permitted.
These plcturea art sure to create a
great sensation throughout lh* world.
These pictures will bt shown at the
Ilex theatre June 30th and July 1st.
I find the report circulated that IS
recruits of the Cranbrook contingent

Mr. IE „!. Mccrcdy's Narrative of the
Sinking of the S. S.
The following most extraordinary
' experience of Dr. Ralph Mecredy, of
Dublin, one of the survivors of the
loss of the Lusituniu, cannot fall to
be of great interest to our readers.
; The account Is tuken from the Dublin
Evening Mail of the 10th May, three
days alter the massacre.
Mr, It. .1. Mecredy, tbo father of the
narrator, is a hrst cousin of Mr. T. T.

with amazoment the manner In whicli
he analyses bis mental processes at
the very moment the liner was sink

this place over that, nnd the disadvantage of the next placo over the
one he was about to try. It Is not
surprising that he escaped. More

The narrative follows:
I had the pleasure of lunching today
with Dr. Ralph .Mecredy, son of Mr. It.
J. Mecredy, who is so well known lu
connection with the Irish Motor and
Cycling World. Dr. Mecredy was a
passenger on the ill-fated Lusltanla,
and when 1 saw him today, except that
he was a little pale, a little hoarse,
and bud his finger bound up in bandages, he did not appear to be a great
deal the worse for the terrible experiences through which ho hnd passed.

Then I had to muke up my mind to
drop into the sea over the stern of the
ship, or to go for'ard to the bow where
she wus sinking, und where her deck
rails were awash. I thought that If I
tried the for'ard plunge she might go
down ut that moment und perhaps roll
over on to 1110, or that lu any case if
she went dOWH 1 should be sucked under with her, anil perhaps be struck

could. Then I tackled again the problem as to whether 1 should get Into tlu

as I came on deck the vessel gave a
lurch which knocked a lot of people
down, and it occurred to me that It
was time to move. I decided that I

But I found the rope soon tailed off
Into a wire rope, and when I looked up
I found a couple of stokers wero coming down ou top of me, nnd that I had

immediately struck out with the Idea
of getting as far as I could from the
sinking ship. I swum around for a
bit, trying to collect my wits, and to
decide what was tlie best thing to do.
Presently I snw n ship's boat, and, although she wus pretty full, 1 thought
the best tiling I could do was to go

before we saw the Ilrst sign of rescue
ships. We saw a smoke slack ou tho
horizon, a little while afterwards another, and hi a short while help could
be seen coming from nil points of the
compass. We were picked up hy a
trawler, but some of my fellow-passengers declined to go ou board the
trawler as tbey feared that she might
bo torpedoed. Tiie Irish coast was by
this time iu sight, und we were taken

Dr. Mecredy smiled over the recollection of the financial embarrassment, surely the least troublesome
thing In an experience of this kind.
"It ls hard," he said, "to give you a
connected narrative where so many
things come crowding Into your mind.
For example, I believe I saw the German submarine. I thought I saw nn
upturned boat some distance away
with men walking up and down upon
her. A lady, who was saved, told mo
tho same thing, and thnt she recognized It as a Germnn submarine, because lt flew a Germnn flag. Another
