much of Importance accomplished hy
the Hoard during 1910. Ot cottrBQ 1
think It will be admitted hy all tliat
the pant year liaH offered fow opportunities tor work along the linen usually taken up by Hoards of Trade, It
has to some extent been a year of unrest and unsettledness due perhaps
partially to war conditions but perhaps more so to the fact that during
the last summer and early fall, we
wore all busily engaged In
strenuous election campaign. Under
the circumstances it seemed a practical impossibility for the Hoard to get
down to business in a businesslike
manner. Now that we are finished
with the rancors of a bitterly fought
election and the new Qovernment are
taking hold of things with the tremendous endorsatlon that they received
from the people, we can look toward
dent for tlo. ensuing year with Mr, .1

ou Sunday.
The Service ol' Praise at the Methodist Church last Sunday evening was
as every one expected of the Methodist
choir and leader, one of great pleasure.
Though the entire service was given
up to musical items a reverential
spirit pervaded the edifice.
The program commenced with a half
hour's Organ Recital of numbers well
chosen to bring out the possibilities
of the Pipe Organ iu tlie organist's inimitable interpretation of the masters'
excerpts.     At   7.ISO  the  Song   Service
commenced with the singing of the
Doxology. a fitting Invocation by the
Pastor, supplemented by the chanting
of the Lord's Prayer. The congregation showed that tliey could do their
part In singing the old hymn "All hail
the power of Jesus' Name" to the tune
Diadem tho harmonies of which were
arranged by the organist. After
prayer by the pastor, Mr. Morton nc-
qultted himself well In the solo parts
of Adam's "Holy City," arranged by
Jaroby. Strength was added to tlie
number by the addition of pari singing
in the chorus.
Though it would be invidious to
single out any particular number on
the program the duet "He wipes the
tear from overy eye." sung by Mrs. T.
C. Phillips and Miss M. P, Hamilton,
was very tastefully rendered. Both
these ladies have voices which show

Tlii:   snnuiriNT   CAMPAIGN   A
In view of the very great Interest
v; Ich Bitot lies to lhe submarine cam-
I algn.  wo  roproduoe  tlio  following
from    tlie    Victoria    Daily    Colonist,
which is one of the host posted papers
u Canada on naval matters.
In a ret*, ut speech Sir John JelllCOQ
-aid: "Tlie submarine menace to tlie
merchant service is far greater now
than at any other period of tlie war
ami requires all our energy to combat
ft. It must and will be dealt with; of
that I am confident." This slgnlfi
cant observation was made before the
enemy proclaimed his policy of unrestricted warfare at sea, but it showed
that the admiralty was adopting measures whicli the Firsi Lord wus con
fident would effectively counter thc
menace. Yesterday Sir Iledworth
Meux, another able naval officer, said
In parliament that he hnd every reason to believe thai tho navy wan in
a fair way of dealing with tho submarine troublo as it dealt with the sep'
polln threat. A high official of the
admiralty told tho Associated Press
that unrestricted Mibmarlue warfare
had been expected uml measures had
been takeu which lu? was confident
would frustrate the onomy'B campaign,
in tho House of Lords Lord Cur son
outlined In n general way whnt tho
admiralty measures were,   (ireat Brit
ain, he said, was multiplying destroy
It will take some time to put those I ■
measures into effective operation. No;
matter how complete may have been
the preparation, practical application
was impossible until the enemy revealed tho nature of Ills attack. This,
of course, is elementary. It is the
same in the case of counter-iuoasurGB
on land or In tho air. And until the
defence is perfected the Teutons "are
hound to reap a considerable harvest.
Their first onslaught necessarily must
he tho most formidable. There again
the analogy of land and air operation:;
holds true. France's most difficult
tlmo in the Verdun fighting was in
tho first five days. In thc Initial big
Zeppelin raids last summer every ,i\v
ship returned Barely to Germany,
Within a few weeks England had bo-
come a veritable Zeppelin trap, in regard to tho present situation we Hhall
seo tho same results. The score of
tin* enemy , high at tlm hi ginning, will
gradually diminish until it roaches tlie
normal figure of loss. His ubmurine
fleet in men and material will diminish hi the same degree, for the measures iidopted by Creat Britain will
exact si heavy toll of Hun undersea
craft nnd their crews, the latter being the most substantial loss and one
which In time will be Irreparable. I
Some of them will he captured, but we
may reckon on tho majority of the
boats hist to Qermany being sunk.
Most of the measures adopted by the
navy will permit of uo other outcome, j
We must not overlook the vital, ea-
ntial fact that tho enemy's submarine campaign is a massed attack which
has behind it. tlie same purpose as tlie
various concentrated opera linns on
land since the commencement of Uio
war. After tho battle of the Manic
and tho extension of tho batth front
from the Alsue tn the Channel const
the central empires fell Into n slate ot
Beige. They tried to break out first
lu Flanders and disastrously failed.
Thereupon they turned to the eastern
front and drove the Russians bach
many miles, overrunning Poland
Courland, Lithuania iiml Volhynia and
to-conrptorlng Gallcia, But l his did
not alter the main situation. Ru dn
l'> nt hn- did not 11-. i.U and lhe J "
man wave came to a standstill. Thou
the Teutons delivered their massed llt-
tack in the south, overcame Serbia and
gained tho most Important of tin Ir
successes, but it did nol enforce the
raising or the Beige. It gained no separate peace, no outlet to the seas iiml
finally entailed fresh burden- upon
their resources. Tliey then tried
France at Verdun anil Italy in the
Trentlno and again failed with enormous losses bestdcB facilitating u Russian advance which accounted for a
million Teutonic casualties. The
Rumanian campaign was worthless in
its relation to the chief essential fact
of the war. It could have heen of vital
value only if it had been followed up
with tlio invasion nnd conquest of
Bessarabia, au undertaking whieh tbe
enemy was no longer strong enough
to carry out.
Now tbe massed attack Is being
mado upon Greal Britain. Il cannol
be conducted with au army and the
enemy at present fears* to try it with
Iii-; navy. The Zeppelins failed. The
submarine campaign always has heen
on the Qerman cord since the Cressy,
Hogue, and Aboukir wen* sen! down
by i;-» in 1814. It wns attempted in
February 1916, but tho counter-mens-
nres adopted destroyed no many (it r-
raan submarines after the first few
weeks that the enemy abandoned the
gamble, file decided to try again
when he hnd constructed a sufficient
number of more powerful . uhnuirincs
to carry out mi intensive campaign,
Ho does not expect to stnrve Great
Britain into subjection. Thnt fustian
is for home consumption. Ho knows
that the nation bus sufficient resources
to establish sea lanes for ships laden
with Imports of food ami nococsary
raw materials on which his submarines would not daro to trespass fer si

great as Ills losses have bien iu similar massed attacks in the air und on
land. He believes tbat losses in trad".

Bhould be eliminated, and Instead of nn

To effect this momentous constitutional change without serious friction
