There is more or less fault to

War News of the Week
Last Monday evening Ihe Dominion Hotel was the scene of the
festivities when the men from
thi.-; district who have joined the
Western Scots, were hosts at a
banquet in Victoria. Lieut. W.
F. Cooke had just returned from
his trip to Ottawa, and one of the.
j principal reasons for the the celebration was to do him honor.
Pte.   Montgomery,    chairman
for the occasion,  explained that
it had been   thought fitting  that
the   soldiers   from   the   Cariboo should have a social re-union
: before they  went   abroad,   and
I that they should endeavor to indicate to their officers the good
I feeling existing among them, and
! their determination "to do their
bit" in full measure.
Songs and recitations were enjoyed, after which Lieut. Cooke
I gave a short speech.
The men found it difficult to
I do him enough honor.   Hd confessed himself as lacking a knowledge of what he had done to deserve it.   He was glad to be a-
| mong his comrades and to see
! them   together.   There was no
doubt that they had done  the
1 right thing in joining the Western Scots.   In Ottawa he  had
learned enough to appreciate that
there was much more to learn.
Efficiency   meant   effectiveness
and to obtain efficiency patience
was   needed.   No  matter  how
long one might serve he knew
that there cou'd never come a
time when nothing more remained to be learned. He hoped that
all "the boys" would not forget
that all the little things of the
drill ground, apparently insignificant, were a part of the great
big "game." He trusted that
they would remember this in
Victoria and later in England so
that, when it csme to the final
stage, thoy would be properly
lifted to do tin ir parts.
(Ireat efforts are being made
by the provincial government to
stimulate the lumber trade. Owing to the indisciiminate cutting
of prices the industry has suffered severely since the commencement of the war. A special lumber commissioner is being sent
to Europe and it is hoped that he
will be instrumental in doing
much to better the situation.
The Pacilic Coast Hockey Association clubs will soon getaway
to a good start in the season's

A short time ago a chimeey
fire occurred in a house on the
Millar Addition. Luckily, no
damage resulted. Last Wednesday the north end of the city
was for a few n ii utes'in grave
peril as a result of a chimney fire
in the Nehring building. Flames
shot out of the chimney with a

quickly, and again, hapi ily, no

more spectacular than dangerous

British Columbia is a ver\
young province, commercially
speaking. Despite this fact, tre-1
mendous development has taken
place within tho past decade.
Much of this development is due
to the fact that the government
induced outside capitalists to invest their money in the lands of
the province and upon them up
for settlement. Had the government been a wealthy one, it
might not have boon necessary
to appeal to outside capital. Had

average taxation a head slightly

In other words, to get the tax

British Preparedness
Mr. Frederick Palmer says
that Kitchener has completed
his work of organization and has
gone to the Near East for the
purpose of putting his preparations into activity. In spite of
all that thoughtless people have
alleged to the contrary, the manner in which the British Empire,
and especially the United Kingdom, has been changed from a
non-military power to one of the
greatest military nations the
world has ever seen, is the marvel of the time, The simple fact
that whereas a year ago Britain
was able to send abroad nnlv an
expeditionary force of about 15.,-
000, ?he la now able, in addition
to keeping 1,000,000 men in the
battlefrnnt in Franpo antl Belgium, ample reserves at home
and all her needed garrisons complete, to send 7 50,00. men to the
Balkans,' is the most amazing

The public is urged to exercise

Parcels sent abroad require a
higher standard of packing than

Parcel Pnst, and this applies with
even greater force to parcels for
the troops. Those which are inadequately packed run great risk
of damage or loss of contents.
Thin cardboard boxes, such as
shoe boxes, and thin wooden
boxes, should not be used; nor
does a single sheet of ordinary
brown paper afford sufficient protection. The following forms of
packing are recommended.
(1) Strong double cardboard
