LADNER, B. 0. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1914.
���11.00 A YEAR
Mr. Frank J. MacKenzle, M.P.P.,
was in Ladner the other day, having motored down with Mrs. M.ac-
Kenaie. The active member for Delta
has some interesting tales to relate
of incidents In connection with the
hunt tor the bank bandits who were
jes-ponaible for the death of young
Adams. He pays tribute to the good
vork done by the B. C. Horse of
Langley who patrolled the sideroads
as well as the highways and whose
thorough covering of the ground was
undoubtedly responsible for the
bandits making a quick retreat from
the Canadian side. It would certainly appear a dangerous place for
the desperadoes to stay in as they
caught glimpses, as undoubtedly
they did, of armed men patrolling all
_. the roads. Mr. MacKenzie is equal-
Mi y appreciative of the oo-operation
v- ��� shown by the residents of Surrey and
Langley. There was every desire
shown to help the officers, none of
that maudlin sentiment evidenced so
often which results in the hunted
criminals being harbored, while there
was always a cup of tea ready to
cheer the police officers, the deputies or the troopers on their way
What was also a pleasing feature
o! the bandit hunt as it warmed up
wns the rordial spirit ot co-operation
shown by the American police and
detectives. Telephonic information
was freely passed between the headquarters on either side of the border
and customs officers were kept fully
informed of movements

Before this new departure was
made by the government at the request of the Board of Trade the inspection was made at the line by
officers brought from White Rook
and Blaine. The American officer
has still to be brought from Biaine
while the Canadian inspector is stationed at Vancouver. The farmers
believe that this could be remedied
if a quarantine station with an officer is established at Point Roberts.
The Board of Trade had asked for
a quarantine station but the government decided for an inspection station.

���KITCHENER-
Career of Man Who Ie Empire's Guiding Star
Though it Is seldom that the tru.
proportions of a man's greatness aro
appreciable oy his own countrymen
and contemporaries, it is often possible to anticipate the verdict of history by that of more detached foreign observers, ln tbe case of Earl
Kitchener the opinion of Westerns
and Orientals alike has very deli-
nitely pointed to him as the greatest
Englishman of his era.
When Kitchener visited Manchuria and Japan upon the expiration of his command in India, tha
Japanese laid themselves out to Impress him with various exhibitions
of their military power, of which
they are very reasonably proud.
B**t the most imposing pageant in
the world, its pomps and vanities,
are as nothing in Kitchener's eyes.
His hosts viewed liis silence, his expressionless immobility, if with dis-
api ointment, at least with profound
respect. It was, in fact, like their
own ideal of impenetrable reserve,
and, as a Far Eastern friend who
was in Kil -hener's entourage, informed me, Kitchener is regarded
hy the Japanese today as the greatest European* they have ever seen.
Incidentally, my object here is to
suggest a newer and more accurate
estimate of Lord Kitchener's personality. None could be more interesting, if only for the fact that
there has been no other modern soldier or statesman whose prepaartion
for the work awaiting him has provided such an example of reversion
to the ancient methods of heroes���
from the days of Moses onwards���
amidst the wastes and solitudes of
Nature.
There is a common factor in tha
character of great men which an old
writer has described as "reserve
force acting directly by presence
without means. "It is a sort of
familiar genius," he says, "by whose
impulses its possessors are swayed,
but whose commands they cannot
impart. Such men are often solitary, or, if they chance to be social,
do not need society but can entertain themselves very well alone.
What others effect by talent or by
eloquence such men accomplish by
some magnetism."
When the history of. Lord Kitchener comes to be written, surely no
more fitting words could be found
to describe him.    It is s^id of Lord
a menu of locusts and wild honey,
but the strong reflective elements
in his nature, the self-sufficing,
self-reliant wore developed and
hardened into wondrous temper in
the free atmosphere and vast lonely
spaces of the deserts.
It was characteristic of so unconventional a nature that his first step
to fortune and greatness was a piece
of indiscipline. He was on leave in
Alexandria on the eve of the famous
bombarduent, and knowing that a
telegram recalling him to Cyprus
was imminent he arranged with a
friendly pressman to delay its
reaching his hands until the weekly
boat to Cyprus had gone. Lieutenant Kitchener with his, at that time,
unrivalled knowledge of the natives
and their language, was, of course,
a welcome find for any commander
like Lord Wolseley, committed to
operations in a comparatively unknown country. Accordingly, his
services were retained, and from
that moment his future was assured.
His Work in Egypt.
There followed twelve months'
unremitting labor, broken only by
a journey to Sinai, and then, as an
intelligence officer, he disappeared
into the desert to the south. His
nature had become fully responsive
and attuned to the voice of the wilderness, and it was a call he could
not resist. For two years he wandered  from  Cairo   to Abu   Hamed,
Upon this implacable son of the
deserts the jobbery and backstair
influences of civilized communities
never made a moment's Impression.

Kitchener's    exceptional   greatness.

years, was to materialize in the regeneration of the Soudan.
Genial, affable, kindly, and fond
of a joke at ordinary times, when
hard work or fighting is afoot he
freezes into an uncompromising se
ts a strange innate power which has
always found expression, not in
words, but in achievement, and in
the production of achievement in
others.
Irishmen like to claim ' Lord
Kitchener as a countrymen of theirs
on the ground that he was born at
Gunsborough Villa, County Kerry,
on June 24, 1S50. But although
his father. Colonel Henry Horatio
Kitchener, had migrated to Ireland
from Leicestershire, two years before the birth ot his son Herbert,
the family is East Anglian, and in
the little Suffolk village of Laken-
heath there are records of the
Kitcheners going back to 200 years
ago. when Thomas Kitchener and
his wife' Abigail came thither from
Hampshire in the reign of the third
William.
His mother's family, the Chevaliers of Aspall, in the same old eastern county, hate possessed Aspall
Hall for over two centuries, and it
was In recognition of his mother's
family homo that Kitchener associated in his title the name of the
little East Anglian village with that
of Khartoum.
Ireland has given many great soldiers to the Empire���notably Lord
Roberts���but "silly" Suffolk produced the stock from which sprang
Earl Kitchener of Khartoum and Aspall.
As a boy he seems to have impressed observers in different ways.
An old friend of the family describes
him as a "manly, active and spirited
little fellow who could not keep
quiet, and consequently, like all
boys of his kind, used to get into
scrapes, but bud great luck In getting out of tlem." Another says
"ho was a smirt, intelligent, grow-
lng-up lad, promising to be a smart
young fellow"; while a third remembers him as "quiet and taciturn,
good at books, but taking a bad
place in outdoor games and gymnastics." To a fourth he was "a
shy, self-contained boy, who early
showed a talent for figures."
K.'s friends of his famous day-
will readily recognize these early
sprouts of his later qualities.
They soon bore fruit in an eagerness for any useful experience which
crossed his path. Thus even before
he entered the army in 1871 he had
a taste of actual war. While still
a Woolwich cadet he was staying
during a vacation with his father in
Brittany, for the Irish estates had
been sold. France's last desperate
struggle against the German hosts
was being fought out by brave but
ill-organized armies of hastily-
raised levies. Young Kitchener offered his services to the French, was
accepted, and fought under General
Chanzy in the operations around Le
Mans. It was to be remembered
afterwards when ho and Captain
Marcband gallantly drank to on.
another on the Nile at Fashoda.
But we need not go out of our
way to seek for early germs of K.'s
after greatness. He would be the
first to deny that there was any-
finer quality in his nature than is to
be found in the generality of young
Anglo-Saxon   soldiers.
But he was subjected to a novitiate which has produced many of
the world's finest souls. He did not
adopt a raiment of camel's hair or
tlon of K.'s regulations, for every
one of his officers had to be fit and
ready to march in K.'s invariable
half-an-hour in any direction. One
of K.'s staff thoughtlessly pleaded
the young officer's physical incapacity. "Sunstroke!" replied K.
"What the devil does he mean by-
having sunstroke? Send him down
to Cairo at once."
As this was K.'s invariable sentence of professional death, tho
staff-officer hurriedly wired to his
friend a warning that he was under
a delusion and was quite well.    The'arrest.     They are charged with man-

Only ono man is ever known to
have given back-talk to Kitchener
in tho matter of an order. When,
at the most critical stage of the long
advance towards Khartoum the all-
important desert railway was being
pushed into the gleaming wastes of
rock and sand beyond Wady Haifa,
K. one day made a sudden descent
upon the officer in charge of the
work antl strongly objected to some
method of construction. It might
well have silenced some men. But
the young, at that time unknown
soldier of French-Canadian extraction, looked calmly Into the eyes of
the dreaded chief, and replied, deliberately, "Look here, sir, am I
working this job or are you?"
Kitchener laughed. "Go on," he
said; "do it your own way." He
knew his man and the qualities
which gave him such faith in himself.
The following story affords an interesting comparison between K.'s
way and that of other commanders.
It occurred in South Africa.
Lord Roberts, requiring some important work to be carried out, sent
for a senior officer and gave him
his instructions. "How soon do
you think you can put it through?"
inquired the kindly old chief, adding, "I know you'll do the best you
can." "I'll try to do It in a fortnight, sir," was the reply. "Well,
I know you'll do your best," smiled
Lord Roberts, as he bade the other
good-bye.
The visitor had no sooner got
outside than he ran up against Lord
Kitchener. "Well?" rapped out K.,
abruptly. "Oh, I've just seen the
chief," explained the officer, refer-
} ring to the business in hand. "How
soon will you get it done?" was the
quick response. "Well, I told him
I would try to do it in a fortnight."
"Now look here, colonel," replied K.,
"unless this is put through within
a week we shall have to consider
your return home." The work was
done.
No man was ever so independent
of his entourage. His office stationery consisted of a bundle of telegraph forms in his helmet and a
pencil in his pocket. It was said
of him that his chief of the staff
in South Africa had no'hing to do

read to the members of No. 1 company on parade at the armories last
night. The report deals with the
services rendered by the White Rock
unit in connection with tho pursuit
of the Sedro-Woolley bank bandits,
and is as follows:
White Rock, B.C.,
October 26th, 1914.
To t'he Officer commanding
No. 1 Company of the Imperial
National   Reserve   in   Canada.
Sir:
Believing some advantage might
ac.cruo to the Reserve, were an official report of the action of the White
Rock unit of the National Reserve,
in connection with the murder of
Mr. C. Adams, of the local Customs
force, and capture of the desperadoes who committed the murder.
I have the honor to report as follows:
The five desperadoes   were   seen
crossing the Boundary line early on
Thursday   morning,    an    American
official, alone at the time, fired over
the heads of the bunch, who broke
and ran on into Canadian territory.
The alarm  having heen  given,  Mr.
Adams, who was on patrol, and several    American    officials    followed
them on the old New Westminster
Southern Railway, to the crossing of
the North Bluff Road (the scene of
a former tragedy)  where it appears
the   desperadoes were   in  ambush,
having  crept  down   into  tho  ditch.
When the officers reached the spot,
Mr. Adams apparently In the lead,
heard   some   movement    and    commanded   the   desperadoes   to   throw
up their  hands,  instead   of   which
they opened  fire,  and  poor Adams
fell,  dead,  the   other   parties took
part ln the melee, killing one of the
desperadoes,   while   another is  believed to have been shot by Adams
before he himself fell, of the others
cne of them was shot in the hard,
and the other had two shots through
his cap, but was not injured further,
and  three of   the desperadoes   got
away, as thought at the time, up in
the timber land between the Hall's
Prairie Road and the Pacific Highway, and it was further thought by
the civil authorities that they might
endeavor to make their way through
the woods, and by way of Elgin so
on to New Westminster   ahd   Vancouver, j
The Customs authorities, Mr. VV
E. Johnson in charge, and who had
some time ago been advised, if at
any time he required assistance, to
call upon the No. 2 Co. I. N. Rs.
(White Rock unit) and such assistance would be furnished, having
been advised of the trouble at Efazel-

fatally shot ln the head, apparently
by his companions. It Is supposed
that the wound received in the fight
had incapacitated him from effective

DECIDES ON
ORGANIZATION
ported   by   tiie  Local
Plan Ik to Huve the Exchange Sup-
Bodies.
(From The Biiu-u Coluni-idu-
Endorsing a recommendation Dy
the executive, the Fraser Valley Development League in general session
yeeteruay auci-uoou detaiitely decided on the organization of a central selling agency dor tiie co-operative marketing oi Fraser Valley produce. The agency will be organized
under the provisions of the Agricultural Associations Act, which provide that when twenty per ceut of
Hit capital is subscribed the Provincial Government will advance the remaining eighty per cent, 'lhe stock
will be sold on the basis of twenty
per cent cash, the balance over a
period of five years, so that the de-
terred payments of stock uis they
come in wi* meet the repayment of
the government advance, ft is proposed to put tne capital of the
agency association at $200,000, to be
divided into 4000 shares of $50 ,
each. The central exchange will be
sup-ported by local exchanges, which
will ensure a sufficient amount of
.produce to make the marketing
operations of the central exchange
u success.
In addition to acting as the medium for the collection, transportation and marketing of produce, the
exchange will be in a position to collect information as to the following
season s probable markets, and ad-
wse growers to guard against under
or over-production, and will supervise packing and grading.
In advocating this action Mr.
Buchanan pointed out that the league is acting on the best available
advice of the experts of the Agricultural Department, and on lines recommended by the Royal Commission on Agriculture. The need for
such an organization is obvious.
Farmers are discouraged by reason
of the inadequate returns received,
and the necessary government assistance can only be secured in this
way.
.    In   the   course  of  the   discussion
It was demonstrated that the members of tbe league have confidence
in the farmers of the Valley taking
up  this  project.     In  order  to take
advantage of the benefits accruing,
members must be stock holders and
this it was felt will be a sufficient
iruucement.    Some discussion  arose
as  to  tlie  methods  of  dividing  the
profits, over and above the six per
cent dividend which the act provides
shall   be   the  maximum.     The  suggestion was made that the consumers  who  were  stock holders might
be allowed some share of the direct
advantages, on a co-operative plan,
in  ratio to  the amount of produce '
purchased, as it was pointed out that |
six   per   cent   would   hardly   induce
anyone not a producer to take stock
in  the association.    On  the    other,
hand   the   view   was   expressed   that ,
the  benefit to  the consumer would j
ocnsist  mainly  in   the  lower  prices |
1-esu.lting from the elimination of the
middleman, although this of course
would  app\y equally to all  consumers, whether shareholders or not.
Mr. G. O. Buchanan thought that
the adoption of a co-operative plan
would hardly be permissable under
Ihe act, and in any case would widen
the scope of the project to an extent not foreseen by the executive.
The project, however, was not by
any means perfected, and the executive would yet hnve to consult many
authorities before settling the details.
Reeve Marmont of Coquitlam, the
president of the league, was in the
chair.

At the general meeting of the
Fraser Valley Development League
held in the Board of Trade rooms
here Saturday afternoon, 'provision
was made for admitting to associate
membership Boards of Trade, Farmers' Institutes, Women's Institutes
and other public, non-political
bodies interested In the development of the Fraser Valley, on such
terms as may be decided upon by
the executive.- This ac'.ion was
taken on the reading of a communication from the Matsqui-Sumas
Board of Trade which stated that
the  Board  had  decided   to   extend
the Balkan war, and was killed on
the tiring line. Another Pappas,
William by name, had a store on
Eighth street and left the city after
a summons had been .issued for him
on a charge of Sunday trading, but
the chief is positive this is not the
man killed on the Ferndale bridge.
Two more of the infamous band
of Russian bandits whose pursuit
has raised the entire countryside on
both sides of the border met death
early this morning at the hands of
a posse which ambushed them on
the G. N. bridge near Ferndale. The
iifth member of the gang fled along
a path by the Nooksack river, trapping himself on a peninsula from
which escape is impossible, and his
death or capture is only a matter of
hours. This disposes of the entire
gang, which on Saturday night last
robbed the First National Bank at
Sedro-Woolley, Wash., of $12, luO,
crossed the border and killed Clifford Adams, customs officer of this
city, in a gun fight near Hazelmere,
when they lost two of their number,
and finally retraced their steps into
Washington, where they evil career

(From The Brllua Columbian)
lhe potato growers of the Fraser
Valley need not be alarmed that
their product will not letch a good
price this season, Markets Commissioner Abbott informed the Fraser
Valley Development League yesterday afternoon. And iu giving this
assurrance Mr. Abbott gave an illuminating glimpse into the dark recesses of the trade in spuds. It appears that the potato crop in New
Brunswick is heavy, and the C, P. R.
has put in a low rate of 68 cents to
Calgary, as compared with 45 cents
from this district to the prairie city.
1 Potatoes in New Brunswick are
selling al $5 per ton, and the buyers
fin the valley, accordlmg to Mr. Abbott, have been using these conditions as a lever to hammer down"the
prices here. As an Instance of this
he mentioned a specific case where
two carloads, already loaded at $16,
I had been priced down to $13.
I All that is necessary, Mr. Abbott
jsa-Id, is for the. farmer to'keep his
[head, and also his tubers, for a
while. The low freight from New
Brunswick is not a factor of any
importance, as it is based on a minimum carioud of 56,000 pounds, as
against 30,000 maximum from this
district; the potato crop on the
prairies is a failure owing to the dry-
season, and in any case New Brunswick potatoes can not be shipped
after the beginning of Novemiber on
account of frost. The farmers ought
to get $20 a ton for their spuds this
year, Mr. Abbott, thought, to make
up for losses in the past, and to balance the fact that fruit will be low.
The consumer will lose nothing by
this, he added, as in any case the
wholesalers would simply p-ut the
potatoes in storage and make the retail buyers pay the high price finally.
Alderman James, cf Vancouver,
confirmed Mr. Abbott's statement
that potato crops on the prairie are
light. In southern Manitoba the
farmers will not this year have a
quarter of their own home demand.

receiver placed in charge. Tho
working out of the company may
take some little time, as it is difficult, to realize at once upon even the
best securities, but if financial con-

hope, then there is every reason to
believe that the voluntary liquidation will obtain the very best re-

Will Tuke Time.
"The business has been so largo
and voluminous that the securities
aro many, and it will take some little time to properly estimate their
present value and also to realize
upon thorn. It is expected that a
largo sum will be obtained by the
company from the life Insurance of
the late Mr. Arnold, nnd there is
also a bond of $250,000 filed with
tho Minister of Finance at Victoria,
under the provisions of the Trust
Act, which may be available In tho
final straightening out of the company's affairs.
"The directors wish tho general
public, who have been depositors, as
well ns tho other creditors, to be as
patient with tho new management
as possible, ns every endeavor will
be made to obtain the most competent man to undertake the winding-
up of tho estate, In order that the
very most can bo obtained from tho
realization of the securities. Tbe
liquidator will be assisted by an advisory committee ot independent
men who are not in any way connected with the compnny or its management.
"This result has been arrived at
by the directors after a careful survey of the whole situation and after
consulting with n committee of the
strongest financial men in the city,
representing the lnrgest institutions,
who aro interested in seeing tho
very best results obtained and have
come to tlie conclusion that this can
best be done by voluntary liquidation."
