Owing to the  war
raging in Europe and

which  is
the fact that millions of men who
heretofore have   been   producers
have become consumers, there is
going to be a heavy demand   on
the country's resources.   In view
of Canada's  responsibilities as a
part of the Empire to see that as;
much is done as is possible to aid
in the maintenance of the Empire's armies and the people of
the Motherland, and because   of
the      exceptional     opportunity
which has developed for Lhe tiller
of the soil, the  Department  has
felt that il should do something
to help those affected make thel
very best of their chance.     Accurate information has been obtained as to what forms  of  produce will Le in most demand as a
result of the changed conditions,
and the speakers named, instructed   by   tlie Government,  have
made a special study of the situation.     Their   conference   with
the farmers will be informal, being merely to show those in doubt

THE ISLANDER, CUMBERA.ND;   B.C.
RED CROSS
SOCIETY
From far-away Newfoundland
comes the news that the people
who are under the chare of Dr.
Grenfell, the well known missionary, are assisting the Red Cross
in its work of mercy during the
present grave national crisis and
that recently the poor men and
women of the "French Shore" on
the northern point of the island
held a fair at which more than
four hundred dollars were raised.
The success of this fair was due
to the efforts of Dr. Grenfell who
visited the fishermen in the locality where the "catch" had been
good, avid asked them to do their
share in providing comforts for
the soldiers of the Empire who
are willing to give their lives for
the freedom of Europe.
No less than 28 motor ambulances have been donated to the
Red Cross Society by the people
of Canada to date. The latest
additions to this most important
branch of the Society's work
come from Ottawa, where the
local branch of the Red Cross has
donated four ambulances. Two
of these will be sent to the
Duchess of Connaught Hospital
at Cleveden.the beautiful Thames
side residence of Major Waldorf
W. Waldorf Astor, M.P., which
has been generously handed over
to the Society by its owner. The
other two will be sent to France
at an early date. It is impossible
to over-estimate the value of
the.se gifts, for the motor ambulance is one of the most important adjuncts of the field hospital.
The   Indians   of   Canada   are
doing their share on behalf of the
soldiers   of   the Dominion in  a1
splendid   manner,   arid recently I
the headquarters of the Society
received a gift of 25 pairs of socks
from the Indians on the reserve |
at Wiarton, Ont.     This gift was!
sent  to the Patriotic league of
that   town   with  tlie  directions!
that the parcel be not opened',
until   it   has reached  the  head j
office.    The Indians on the Blood
reserve, at Macleod, Alta.,  have
also given   generously   to    the
Society,   and   more   gifts  from
these descendants of the early
inhabitants of this  country  will
be warmly welcomed.
In a recent appeal sent to the
people of the United Kingdom,
H.M. Queen Alexandra said:--
"I should like to take this opportunity to appeal to the public
once more to contribute kindly
ancl generously to the Red Cross
fund for the benefit of our brave \

No loss eloquent is the plea of

from France to th.* Red Cross

THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND. B.C.
A   N
APPEAL
ig
The MEN of Great Britain with their Allies are fightin
not only for their own existence and to restore Belgium, but
against the domination of militarism throughout the world.
From the English, Scotch nnd Irish many millions of our
countrymen are descended. We '.-peril*, the same language;
our traditions, standards and ideals are the same. In behalf
of the soldiers and sailors at the front and in the hospitals
the British American War Relief Fund issues this appeal to
those who in this struggle sympathize with Great Britain.
It asks for warm clothing, comforts ancl necessities. The
articles required are mufflers, wristlets, socks, (size 10 or 11)
woollen "loves, (size 9 ancl 10), abdominal belts, woollen
helmets, colored handkerchiefs, woollen underwear, cardigan
jackets, sweaters, and tobacco, and for the hospitals, old
linen, bandages, antiseptic guaze, and anaesthetics. The
society has been in existence only since October 20, 1914,
but contributions have been received from nearly every state
of the United States, from Canada and the West Indies. The
articles already forwarded have been acknowledged by Lord
Kitchener in the following cablegram :—-
"First consignment of gifts from women of America for British on active service, received with
much appreciation and gratitude.     Letter fellows.
KITCHENER,
Secretary of State for War."
Any cash donation will be used in the purchase of these
articles. In order that your contribution may benefit those
in America as well as those abroad all articles will be purchased here. Through the cooperation of British steamship
lines all consignments are delivered in England free of charge
and the British War Office guarantees prompt delivery to
the men at the front and in the hospitals.
All contributions in kind and all communications to be
addressed to Mrs. Ralph Sanger,   British. American War;
Relief Fund, 200 Fifth Avenue, New York, and all monev I
• i
contributions will be gladly received at the same address by
Mr. Henry J. Whitehouse.
The Fund is under the patronage of the presidents of
St. Andrew's Society, the St. George's Society, the St. David's
Society and the Canadian Society.
.Mr. Xf.il Primrose, parliamentary under secretary of
the Foreign Office, replying to questions in the House of
Commons, said the British Government had not recognized
anybody as president of .Mexico since the retirement of General Huerta. He added, however, that the Government had
brought to the attention of the l'nited States several cases
of damage ancl loss to British interests in Mexico which had,
occurred since Huerta's departure from that country in July
of last vear.
The council at Hamburg has purchased a supply of
foodstuffs, fodder ancl other articles, so that the city may be
prepared for eventualities. A commission was appointed to
take charge of obtaining these stores.

of what small amount of blacksmith coal is required, is the report maoe to the city council last
night by Purchasing Agent Gait.
The report was in response to a
recent suggestion from the city

should, wherever possible, purchase coal produced from island

PEACE CENTENNARY.
On Sunday next, February 14,
special Thanksgiving Services,
in commemoration of the Hundred Years of Peace between the
British Empire and the United

in the city churches. At the
evening services special hymns
and prayers will be used, and
sermons suitable to the occasion

to high heaven as a thanksgiving
for this unique event in international history.
