United States by tho ruthloss destruction of American lives mnl sliiiis on
the high seas in contravontlon of all
laws of nations und humanity. Congress then Is expected to pass a resolution declaring that n .state of war In

Ap a consequence the United States
Will take further steps to protect its
interests on the high seas and elsewhere against warlike acts of Germany, and whether an actual state of
war will conic to exist in its full
sense will depend on the future acts
of the imperial German government.
Since last Sunday, when three American ships were sunk off the British
Isles in quick succession with the loss
of American lives, liringiiiR the total
number of Americans lost through the
German submarine operations to more
than 200, the president and all his
advisors have recognized tliat a state

Wilson may BUggest to congress as necessary to meet the situation, leaders

A rumor was current iu London
Tuesday lhat serious riots had broken
out in Germany. These reports were
also in circulation in countries nearer
to Germany.
The correspondent of the Wireless
Press In Zurich reports lhat the Russian revolution caused great agitation in stirring up the German work-

on Sunday and Monday. Several
workshops in eLlpzig are reported ao

The routine business being disposed
of, tlie question of getting tiie Iwys

school   authorities.
Tlie formation of an Kgg Circle,
which is in the hands of tiie executive,
is being proceeded with, and it was
reported thai by next meeting things
would be Inshape to get the circle

Au interesting discussion developed
relative to tlie purchasing of poultry
feed, and a good many different opinions were expressed. As a result of
the discussion it was decided to form
a feed buying club, and a committee
was delegated to take the necessary
steps towards thai end.

Tlie pursuit of the Germans by the
British troops continues and at places
sharp fighting ensued. Tlie armies
hnve been In such close touch at
places that field fighting tactics hnve
been employed, the men firing from
skirmish lines.
Wherever tlie Hritish troops penetrate territory formerly held by tho
Germans tliey encounter the same conditions of destruction and devastation
as in Bapaume and Peronne. Only a
fow villages have escaped, the Germans in these instances having been
compelled to leave before their plans
to lay wnste could be carried out.
The uso of cavalry by the British
and French seem to have taken the
Germans by surprise, upsetting some
of their calculations, In one village
supper, which had been laid out, was
abandoned, together with much ammunition and at otlier places newly-
opened boxes of high explosives were
found with which tlie (iermnns had
planned to destroy tiie villages before
lenvlng.

WATER: As with hist month, I liave

Several trips have been made to the

to make arrangements with another
rancher near at hand to keep an eye

SEWERAGE: Tlie effluent from

GERMANS TO DEFEND
IHE tlMBHI UNE
London. March 21.—The big German
retirement on the Somme is believed
here to lie the forerunner of Germany's greatest effort in the west,
whieh cannot now be long delayed.
The Lafere-Cambral line is one of
considerable natural strength, and the
Germans are sure to have fortified it
witli all the engineering skill at tlieir
command. If their scheme was to
tempt British armies into reckless
pursuit and then turn upon tliem
when tlieir lines were disorganized,
the ruse has failed completely, for
th.' pursuit is now in the hands of tlie
cavalry, whicli can be quickly withdrawn if the counter-offensive begins.
All accounts from ttie British front
agree tiiat everything Is in readiness
for tiie great event, the Issue of which
Is awaited confidently, though It is
known the casualties must be on a
scale probably unprecedented even in
tliis war. Allied preparations nre not
for an offensive of a fortnight merely.
nr fur three weeks, but for months
ami months on end, with alt tliat
means in demands upon men and
material.
A suspension agreement, whereby
the coal miners will continue work
after March 81, provided the operators
show n reasonable attitude In the negotiations, has been reached by the
subcommittee of the Wctern eoat operators and their employees.

A spirit of preparedness will undoubtedly lessen a prvat deal of the
lufferlng aud mistakes which might
occur, and it Is with no spirit of
"booi i" tbat we approach tho question
from the standpoint as related to Crnn-
j brooK and district,
j x.it only is it, the privilege, but we
I think ii Is the bounden duty of ovory
11 trlcl with opportunities for development In their midst to net husy nnd
make tliOBo opportunities known and
available, ir wo hnve nnyhlng to offer,
lei ii offer it; if we have nnythlng
which neods n llttlo attention bofore
ll la fll tu offer, let us get to work.
The old way was to capture tho now-
■ nun r ai tho earliest pocslblo moment
nfter Ms arrival, before he had time
to gel wise, unload some proposition
■ '.1 him, relieving him of as much
■ r his rondy cash aa posslblo, and turn
him adrift in an unknown land to
sink or swim as fate and the follow
up sharks decreed. No one was Interested, no one cared. Wo have heard
ii expressed on all sides that It Is to
be hoped those times never do return
again.
If any real progress Is to be made
towards the assimilation of Ihe returning tide, If nny real progress is to bo
mado in tho Cranbrook district, not
lono must we Invito tlie newcomers
'.i our district, bul wo must ace to it
•' it conditions are snch tlmt tbey havo
■ fair and reasonable prospect of
m iking good.
Evidences of the awakening of this
■■•■al community Interest are not wanting in Cranbrook. The "get togother"
spirit is already here. The Hoard of
Trade, Tl.e Partners' Institute, Poultry
\ oclntlon, Tanners' Union, ure all
iiir iiim: tlieir attention lo the sume
subject. The bettor mon I of local cou-
■|'lii. im ■ lance of this district an
a minim ntri ■ annol be over g -
tlmnted, i ml In taking up the question
of helping ; ' mining industry there
arc several ways that may bc taken
Into 'en '•■•■■■ ration such us transportation, smelter, bonus on metal;, etc.,
etc., hut it appears as though thc assistance should be afforded wliere it
is chiefly needed and given to those
who certainly deserve it and who under present condition.*; benefit thc
least from what they find, 1 refer, or
course, to the prospector.
Mo has [irst to take out and pay for
a free miner's licenco then buy or
hire pack horses, supplies, tool-;, etc.,
for a trip, May be, he makes many
trips and spends many years beforo he
finds a property that is really worth
working on, and whal happens* then?
If he Is a poor man he puts in his
five annual esse n meuts until he completes the work necessary und t lh
Mining Act, and whal ore he lakes
oul is left on lin* dump. If lie can
make Btifflcionl money to have his
claim surveyed, he obtains a Crown
Grant and sits down und wail ■ for n
purchasor, every year paying n tux
of :T, cents per acre to the Qovernment
This is the gonernl proceoduro and
it certainly does not help thc country
nor the mining industry, if he i*
exceptionally fortunate he may bo
aide to sell or bond Ins property on
tho prico and terms offeied iiy the
purchaser, generally not sufficient to
pay him back for his outlay of cash,
let alone his work and loss of time.
Of course many peoplo say thai il is
all in ihe game and cannot be remedied but I feel sure that In some ci
a great deal of assistance can be given
particularly to those properties
which the oro is noi low grade.
The ordinary prospector is never
in a position to ship a carload i
ore: not because lie hasn't got It i
the mine or on tbe dump, but becaua
lie hasn't money enough to get th
ore out in sufficient quantities and
haul it to a railway. Xow this i
wliere Hi" Government could mill
assist htm, The Government could i
central places install r small semi
ling and assay plant and buy ores tc
cash from prospectors in any quar
lily, even   if il   is only  a   pack  load
so that In place of having to wail iv
months or years  bofore being  in
position to ship a carload tho proi
pector  (amid   dispose   of  eacb   lot   n
ho brought II In.
This would give the prospector o
little cash and he could then go back
and get. out more ore; in fact Ihere
would be nothing to stop him from
■working steadily ul his property and
paying his way and it would not lie
Very    long   beli.re    lie    would    he    in    a
position to lietter himself by hiring
more miners and shipping more ore
and so on lie would not be at the
mercy of mining sharks nor unscrupulous companies, and the mining industry would necessarily fcol the effect, as many prospectors in this district bave on- which would pay to
ship, and those who haven'! would
very soon be looking for prospects
thai carried pay on*.
When the Qovernmenl ussayer had
bought enough small quantities to
make up a carload, he could then Bhlp
t ou smelter and get the money back,
so that at no time would the Government be out of pocket for long.
Hy sending out a mining man tn
interview the prospectors in the several districts the feasibility of this
scheme could easily bo decided upon,
and those districts which promises tho
best results would lie the first ones
to try the experiment in and if successful tho syslem could easily bo
extended, in fhet one man could attend tn several districts as long as ho
was al certain points regularly sn
that the prospectors knew when he
would he on hand to take their ore.
Tills method would not bo infringing on any private rights and Bhould
be of assistance to tho smelters.

There would be dancer in any
"treaty" establishing Imperial trade
preferences between Great Britain and
Lhe dominions. Each portion of tho
Empire must have control over its
own tariff. We maintain protection
against Hritish Imports but tho Empire lives. The mother country could
rearm herself with moderate protectionist duties without giving any legitimate ground of grievance to the
oversea dominions, As we understand imperial preference, each portion of the Empire would Hx its own
tariff duties tint give a lower scab* of
duties lo Iiriiish countries than to
countries outside tho Empire. Toronto N<\vs,

OUR soldiers must be fed; the people at

Germany's murderous campaign to
cut off the Allies' Food supply, by sinking
every ship on the High Seas—an ample and
unfailing flow of food to England and
France must be maintained.
This is National Service-
Not to the Farmer only -
But to YOU   to everybody—
This appeal is directed
WE must unite as a Nation to SERVE
—to SAVEand to PRODUCE. Men,
women and children; the young, tlie middle
aged and the old—all can help in the
Nation's Army of Production.
EVERY pound of  FOOD raised, helps
reduce the cost of living anil adds to
the Food Supply for Overseas.

"Does the work cheaper, better"
is what W. II. Heideman writes. "A ton of ordinary dynamite had been vised with very poor results," he said, "and
finally 1 tfot Giant Stumping Powder to test out. It
gave entire satisfaction and did the best all-around work."
Hundreds of land cle.m-rs in every
part of British Columbia always tell
their dealers or institutes tn onler
Giant Stumping Powder for them.
They have found that Giant, Iwiny
made especially for use in this section,
always tpves better results than powders made lo meet general romliiions.

CALLS TO CA
THE  FACTORY
She must have Food—
for her Armies in the Field   -for her Workers in the Factory—in
the Munition plant    in the Shipyard—in the Mine.
THERE'S DANGER IN SIGHT-BUT YOU CAN HELP
THE FARM
Do You Know—
that the rapidly rising price of food stuffs
means that the World's reserve supply is
getting small ?
Do You Know	
that a world-wide famine can only bc
averted hy increasing this supply ?
Do You Know	
that a "footl famine" would be a worse
disaster to the Empire and her Allies than
reverses in the Field ?
You Can—
help thwart Germany's desperate lub-
marine thrust on the high seas.
You Can—
do this by helping to make every bit of
land in Canada produce—the very last
pound of food stuffs of which it is capable.
and Remember—
that no man can say that he has Jully done
his part— \ntiu having land—be it garden
patch, or farm, or ranch—fails to make it
produce food to its utmost capacity.
