Conservative Association
Has Fine New Quarters.
The Prince George Conservative Association has opened club
rooms in the premises lately occupied by the Bank of British
North America, corner of Fourth
Avenue and George Street.
It is proposed to hold regular
meetings on the first and third
Fridays of every month. After
business is disposed of at the
meeting to be held on the 19th
inst., a debate on some subject
oi' interest will take place, in
which all members can take part.
At this meeting Ht is proposed to
appoint a committee who will
take charge of an entertainment
for the next meeting, and at each
meeting a new committee will be
tend the regular meetings, the
club rooms are open at all times,
and some of the executive officers can easily be found who
will be pleased to take up the*
matters above referred to.
Vanderhoof To The Front.
The Herald takes off its hat to the
Conservatives of Vanderhoof and
vicinity. They have taken a firm
hold on the situation there and
will present a united front to the
enemy during the coming Provincial and Dominion campaigns.
At Vanderhoof there are two
conservative   associations,   The

welcomed at these meetings, and i sisting in organizing; other con-
that the club rooms, supplied with j servative associations' along the
daily papers, magazines, writing line of the (I.,T. P., and notably
paper, etc., are at their disposal.
The association is anxious to
secure all information regarding
roads, or the necessity of building same to all outlying districts,
so that an intelligent estimate of
the amount requested from the
government as an appropriation
at, the next session may be arrived at. To gain this knowledge
It would be well to know the
number of settlers in each distriot, the amount of land available for settlement, the need for
schools, and any other matters
pertaining to the general welfare
of the community.
It is proposed to have a large
map of the whole territory contiguous to Prince (leorge, on
which the names of all settlers

at Mapes. The Nechaco Association is an old tried veteran in
the party cause and is as hale
and hearty as ever. At the last
convention of the party held at
Prince George last March to select the candidate for Provincial
House, this association placed
one of its members, Mr. Samuel
Cocker, in nomination and all but
succeeded in obtaining a majority
of the votes for him.
Now, the Herald learns, that
the two associations have linked
arms by forming a working or
campaign committee to take complete charge of all matters, political, in that district durirg the
forthcoming Provincial and Dominion campaigns. This is a step
in the right direction and the results will be shown when the ballots are counted. United, we
stand; and united, we shall win.
City is Still Without a
Proper Electric Light Service.
A most interesting bill is being
shown at the Dreamland Theatre
this evening. The feature is a
fine two-reel dramatization of
Bulwer-Lytton's "Ernest Mal-
travers,'' a story of love and adventure that has appealed to a
large number of readers. The
pictured drama is a stirring one
and sure to prove interesting.
A breezy western skit is "Politics and the Press." This brings
into play the typical western
gun-man, the corrupter of press
and politics. A new editor, young
and aggressive, assumes charge
of the local sheet and proceeds to
run the paper to suit himself,
and in the interests of better
legislation. A plot and counterplot, some gun-play, a near-
hanging and a welcome rescue
hold the interest of the audience,
and of course, the niece of the
villain is instrumental in paving
life's path with roses for the
nemesis of the pen. Plain melodrama, but most pleasing at that!
An exceptionally interesting
Htlarst-Selig pictorial completes
the bill. Some excellent pictures
<>f the Panama Exposition are included in this reel.
Next Monday and Tuesday
there will be shown a fine three-
reel feature, "The Lady of the

Peace River.
A great deal of dissatisfaction
is being expressed regarding the
inadequate lighting service provided the city of Prince George.
No arrangements have been
made regarding the granting of
a franchise to the Northern Telephone and Power Company, and
in the meantime the people of
this city are without proper electric power and light service. Tha
days are getting very short and
will be much shorter before they
commence to lengthen again.
The service afforded at present
is very satisfactory in most ways.
Still, it is only little better than
a twelve-hour service, sometimes
fourteen. Without question
Prince George ,should have a full
service. Light is needed in many
cases all day. Many rooms are
rendered practically useless
throughout the long winter
months unless artificially lighted.
British Columbia is of course
only in her infancy when itcomea
to a matter of the development
of natural resources. This province has every advantage in the
world when it comes to a matter
of providing cheap electric energy. There is hardly a district
that has not sufficient water power to ensure cheap electric light
and power, and yet in this district we aie paying sonethrg
like 30 cents per kilowat hour for
The following, clipped from a
Vancouver paper, gives a fair
comparison of the situation in
this and other parts of  Canada :
the world's largest line of electric
power transmission and at rates
which vary from 1 l-4c per K.
W. hour for over 100 H.P. to 3
l-2cfor3H.P. or less. Without
impairing its world renowned
scenio beauties, the homes and
streets of middle and western
Ontario are thus lighted from
Niagara Falls. The factories and
shops are run by cheap power
from the same source and the
homes in city and country may
be and are supplied with power
to run the sewing machine and
clean the floor, besides running
the thresher or plough."
Everything cannot be done in
a day, of course, but it is high
time that the citizens of Prince
(leorge were provided with a
better light and power service.
Local Man Writes
From Shorncliffe.
A letter has just been received
by Mr. J. G. Quinn from Pte.
Frank Ferguson, well-known in
this district before he left for
the front. Pte. Ferguson writes
as follows:
"It is surprising how many of
the boys from the Georges are
here, or have already gone to the
front. As you are aware, we
were drafted from Calgary rather suddenly, leaving there by
train at 4 a.m. With the exception of a few squad drills wa

"Peace River. Crossing," the
magic numb which' has been associated with the north ever
since there was any travel in the
vast territory north of Edmonton
is now "Peace River," according
to citizens of the northern town.
A meeting of the board of trade
and citizens was held on Monday
of last week/when it was decided that "Peace River Crossing"
is too un wieldly a name, and by
unanimous choice it was decided
to drop the third word. Advices
concerning the decision have
been made to the provincial government, for its part, has acceded to the request.

or three years that the population of the town has increased to
its present large proportions, but

In the upper Cordevole our offensive against the

success. Exceptional difficulties of terrane, to which must

march of our brave troops.
PETROGRAD.— The finance committee has framed
the terms of a new internal loan of one billion roubles
($500,000,000). The loan will run for ten years. The rate
of interest will' be five and a half per cent, and the loan
will be issued at 95.
ROTTERDAM.-Ten more Prussian casualty lists
have been published, covering the period from October 2
to November 2, inclusive. In this period the Prussian
losses amounted to 78,376, or, roughly, 21,000 more than
in the previous ten lists published.

Sir Richard McBride, premier
of British Columbia, has received
the following message from Sir
Robert Borden : "The British
National Committee for Relief in
Belgium has sent the following
appeal signed by the Lord Mayor
of London to all the high commissioners and agents general of
the overseas'dominions. It has
been transmitted by Sir George
IV .'ley, and is as follows: 'The

the Belgians falls on Monday,
fifteenth November, and as chairman of the National Committee

All the members of the 82rd
Overseas Battalion, Lieut.-Col.
H. D. Hulme, commanding, are
now encamped at Hastings Park
with the 72nd Battalion. The
left half of the regiment, comprising Companies C and D, arrived from the central mobilization camp at Vernon on a special
troop train. The train made a
quick run from the Okanagan,
leaving Vernon at 6-30 p.m. and
reaching Hastings Park soon
after 11 o'clock the following
morning, where the men were
quickly detrained and marched
into their winter billets in the
Manufacturers' Building. There
are now approximately 2500 men
in camp at the exhibition grounds.
Col. J. Duff Stuart, commandant of the central mobilization
camp, arrived on the regular
train,   He intends to return to
their beloved monarch's fete | Vernon to superintend the breaking up of the camp, which will
be effected shortly.

A farm with meadows stretching wide
And right next door a grocery,
And bak'ry on the other side.
A theatre across the way
With all the latest comedies,
And next to thet a grand stand, say,
Where one could watch ten-inning ties.
The cowbells ringing in the lanes
While taxicabs and cars go by;
A station near with frequent trains ;
Neat restaurants and open sky.
An apple tree 'neath which to sit
And view thc traffic in the street,
And movies on a screen to flit,
W hile breezes blow from off the w heat.
A brook to croon, a band to snort;

A rural urban home, in short-

A meeting was held Thursday
evening in tbe Fort George Presbyterian church for the purpose
of organizing a men's club. Officers were elected and the club is
away to a good start. The basement of the church will be used

25 cents per month is imposed
for membership dues. This, it
is thought, will be sufficient to
keep the club running.
Such a venture would be very
commendable on the part of
Prince George, in which case a

period Channing observed: "Poverty keeps the peace in Europe."
And again: "When the voice of
humanity cannot be heard the

The present war has already
been positively about as costly in
men and money as the whole
twenty-three years of Revolu
tionary-Napoleonic warfare. The
death roll of that period is estimated at something over two million men. Mortality since August, 1914, is variously estimated;
but it is certainly rapidly approaching two millions. The
direct money cost'of the Revolutionary-Napoleonic warfare to
England alqpe considerably exceeded three billion dollars. England's bill was no doubt heavier
than Mat of any other single contestant, and it is doubtful if the
total direct money cost exceeded
that from August, 191 i, to date.
Relatively, of course, the older
struggle was much costlier than
this, for Europe is more populous
than it was a hundred years ago
and immensely richer. Population of the territory in the German empire, for example, hu
nearly trebled; wealth of England and France hai rlien from
lent than twenty-flve billion dollar! to more than a hundred and
twenty-flve billions. But daily
destruction, aa compared with a
century ago, is proceeding at a
rate vastly greater than the increase in wealth and population.
Every day increases the probability that the time will come when
poverty will keep the peace.
