Technical    Offence   Proved
Against Angler—Fished
on Calder Land
On Thursday afternoon at thc court
taouse John O'Brien appeared before
Stipendiary Magistrate R. Gordon,
charged by W.C. Calder that he did
on Bunday last commit an assault
without justification by resisting an
uttcmpt to remove him from the
lands of Alice Mary Calder, being a
trespasser. He was tined tbe costs of
the court.
Thc section of the criminal code under which the charge was laid declares that everyone who is in peaceable possession of any house or land
or other real property und everyone
lawfully assisting him or acting by
his authority is justified in using
force to prevent any person Irom
trespassing on such property or to
remove him there from if he uses no
more force than is necessury.
"If such trespasser resists such attempt to prevent bis entry or to remove him such trespasser shall be
deemed to commit an assault without  justification or provocation."
"W. 0. Calder, the complainant, declare! that he had lound defendant
fiehing in a stream passing through
the land belonging to his wife. He
called his sons as witnesses and ordered him to leave. As he did not go
he pushed him.
To C. E. Gillan who appeared for
the defence Mr, Calder said that defendant had created no disturbance
and had done no damage.
Donald Calder gave similar evidence and plaintifl in his evidence admitted having been on the land.
Mr. Gillan addressing the court said,
that defendant was heing made a
scapegoat. He l-ft the land when Calder told him but perhaps did not
move last enough to suit complainant. The lish b! had caught did not
belong to Calder and naturally defendant was resentful when told to
leave them. He had done no damage
hnd had oflered no resistance. Mr.
Gillan claimed that there was absolutely no Justification for the prosecution.
G. S. McCarter who appeared tor
Mr. Calder said that defendant had
iefused to go and that this constituted resistance. Thousands were
doing the same as O'Brien had done.
He had himself had a fishing agreement e; ,,.i,. •;.•■:,. with Mr. Calder
nnd had been Insulted when he told
people th it they had no right to be
on the land fishing, Mr, Oalder must
have protection. Others were worse
than O'Brien who had done no damage as they ran Wild over the place
and us?d bad langU !;:■■. The plaintifl
would be satisfied if a warning were
given so that the public would know.
Mr. Calder was nor vindicative but
he  wanted  an  example  made.
His Worship declared that thcre
could he no question thai a technical
assault has been committed as defendant had offered so a Bmall resistance'. He regretted that Mr. Cal
der had noi broughi a more suitable
subject before the court as other.;
were probably more open to a charge
o' assault.      As defendant    had    done
do damage nd I he c o had only
been brought a* a precedent he would
fdamisi it on payment of the costs
ol the court, Tho     nd was plaintiff's
property and he could enforce sine'
lilies governing it if be wished although 'in the west people were inclined to be free and easy in such
Mr. ('aider said that he would be
K4111ng to pay the costs himself to
show that he was not vindictive. He
merely wished to establish his rights.

Rich Mining, Lumbering, and
Agricultural Possibilities
—Good Wagon Road
W. J. Couthard returned on Thursday from an interesting trip to the
Big Bend which included un inspection of the Pioneer Placer mines. He
iB much impressed hy the possibilities
of the district.
"The trip to French creek" said
Mr. Coulthard, "was made by boat
as far as Downie creek, a distance of
40 mile3 and the remainder of the
journey, 25 miles, by saddle horse
over a good trail and wagon road.
The whole trip was most interesting
and highly instructive and apart
from the grandeur of the scenery
witnessed enroute, one could not fail
to be 'impressed with the wonderful
possibilities of the country. On the
various creeks there was more than
usual activity in mining, and around
French creek could be seen prospectors und others in the search for
gold. The Pioneer Placer Mines,
Limited, were making good progress
with their prospect and the members
of the party were kindly shown over
the works by the superintendent iu
charge. It is to be hoped that there
will be a repetition of the activity of
half a century ago when the town of
I> rench Creek boasted a population of
over 5,d00.
•■The journey homewards was made
by saddle horse, and valuable timber
could be noticed on all sides. Several
clearances, partly under cultivation,
were passed on the way and one required only a glance at the products
to convince himself of the agricultural possibilities of the country. During
the greater part of the year the
transportation facilities are still in-
adquate and the wagon road continued onward from Eight Mile Falls
would be a boon to those resident ii.
the country and an inducement to
further settlers. The Big Bend country needs a little advertisement."

where I spent my Sundays when I
was a schoolboy, because my own

When he was very young he was
silent. A. very good and very courteous lad. Silently he received, before
the end of his sixteenth year, the
degree of Bachelor of Science, with
honors, and nine months later, before
he was seventeen, an occurrence unique In the history of our great school
l.e was admitted to the Polytechnic,
his place heing fourteenth.
His career since then I will recount
very brlelly. Surprised by the war ol
1S70 at the end of his first year at
college, like the rest ot us, he did his
duty. After the war he was charged
with the organization of the new defences of Paris, and it waB by him,
on his plans, that the fortifications
in thc Enghien section were created, i
It was on the slope of a fort that
Marshal MncMahon, Burrounded by
his staff, called thc silent young lieu- .
tenant nnd said to him, "I congratulate you, captain!" Captain at 21. It
was grand; but he was sent to the
Hast to organize the working defences of Pontnrlier.
It is all very pretty, he told     me,
I but I don't want to build any   more
I krtificntions.  I  would rather     com-
; mand troops.
A.fter Poutarlier they sent him     to
I Tonkin to build     fortifications     and
;even barracks.
Happily Courbet arrived, who Bent
I Im, sword in hand, to light battles,
I to which he wished to confine his
destiny. He went to Formosa with
Courbet and, under the fire of the
enemy, organized the defences of the
bland. Then they sent h'im to Madagascar to construct the tortifications
.if Dlego-Suarez, which are claimed to
he the most wonderful of their kind.

If the Balkan War can be taken as
an example, the cost of each man
mobilized amounts to $2.all a day.
This gives about $2^,100,000 daily, or
t56tul,000,0O(l nice ,; iy, This figure iq,
however, considerably bhort of the
murk, because it it..a not take into
account the maintenance of the
armies and fleets. The German Reichstag authorized extraordinary expenditure to the extent of $1,260,-
000,000, to be obtained by a loan,
and a further sum of $70,000,000, to
be drawn on the gold and silver reserve of the empire.
lt is now well known that the tax
of 5- per cent, on the stock of notes
issued by the Reicbsbank over and
above its reserve in metal has been
suppressed. The German government
will therefore secure tbe loan required by an issue of bank notes uncovered hy a reserve of gold and Bilver.
This issue reminds one of the assig-
nats of the lirst French Revolution,
of which a few samples are kept as
curious heirlooms in French families.
It is said here that the Austrian
army on a war footing costs the empire $1,000,000 a day, but the Austrian Treasury was emptied by the
mobilization during the Balkan Wars,
which drained the financial resources
ol the empire for more than a year,
nnd it is hard to see where the Austrian monarchy can find the $120,000,
000 required to keep the imperial and
royal armies and navy during the
great war just opening.
The above figures arc probably far
thort of reality, and it is therefore
difficult to see how the Central
European empires can support a
long und arduous war from the financial and econom'ic point of view.

Ready to Forward Every Scrap
of Important News to
Hostile Lands
In view of reported cases of     German espionage in Canada, and ot the
excitement produced in various    een-1
tres throughout the Dominion by the
movements of supposed spies, it is in- I
teresting to know something    of the
scale upon which the German system I
of espionuge is known to   be   organized in the theatre of war of Europe,
which is, of course, the very heart of :
the system, says a despatch from Ottawa.
At the start it is well to recall the
tact that the excellence of the German
intelligence system, which contributed
so powerfully toward the German success in the Franco-German war of
1S70, was the result of an elaborate
spy system, carefully organized within the borders of France during peace
After the »jncV/.<ion     of   the   1806'
Campaign    against   Austria,    Stieber,
minister of police in .Prussia, who was
to Bismarck and  Von Moltke     what !
Fonche was to Napoleon, was sent on j
a secret mission to France. His aim |
and object wns the organization within the boundaries ot France of a spy,!
system  preparatory  to the     pending
war.     Stieber,  in all,  between     1S60 !
and 186'J, made four journeys through
the length and breadth ol France, by I
the end of which time, aided by very !
able  assistants,  he  accomplished far-
reaching results.
He strewed France with 30,000 paid ;
German spies, and organized a com-
piste espionage system in the part6 of
France which covered the possible
theatre of war. Those spies were or-'
ganized territorially under four in-
speetors, having headquarters at
Brussels, Lausanne, Geneva and Berlin, and responsible to two lieuten-
ants of police, who in turn reported
to Stieber.
A peculiar feature of the system in-
Btltuted by Stieber at that time, and
still maintained,      were    the     "fixed
posts."  The  ordinary  idea  of a   spy!
is one who is sent to travel in a tor-'
eign country  in  some disguise,      and
who returns to his own country with
Information thus acquired.     But this
traveling spy   sutlers  very  great  dis- ;
advantages, Like every traveler in a :
foreign country, without raison d'etre
Ior being there,  he is the object     of j
suspicion. He has no time to get thor-
OUghly into touch with useful     chan- ,
ncls of iuformation.
He  is  closely  watched and  directly J
he begins making enquiries as to this.
that and the other, the previous sus- |
picions become certainties     and   his
mission results in tailure.
But the spy iu the "fixed post" is
on an entirely different footing. He '■
attracts no attention, since he lives
as an inhabitant of the place he is in |
und moreover, plies some trade,
which giveH him a very good reason
for being  there.
Under the cover of this trade     he
can make enquiries without incurring
the suspicion of the authorities   and i
bas ample time    to     get into touch I
with anyone whom he thinks capable
oi giving him usetul information.
Germau Spies in France.
The German spies in France were,
and still doubtless are, of all grades
und professions, and of both sexes,
including farmers, market gardeners,
agricultural laborers, vine growers,
railway porters, shop keepers, commercial travelers (a very usetul and
frequent disguise), waiters and waitresses In cafes, hotels and canteens,
newspaper reporters, telegraph operators,  female domestics,  etc.
Among other duties assigned to the
director of tbe German spy service
during the war of 1*70 were the following:
(a) Information in regard to the
situation, strength and movements ot
each group of the hostile army.
(b) In regard to the age, character
and reputation of all hostile com
(c) In regard to what was going on
and the stute of public feeling in the
districts the German army was about
to traverse and the resources of those
(,d) To procure in each of these regions persons capable ot furnishing
useful information.
It is known that in spite of French
vigilance the Germans have maintained and perhaps elaborated the
espionuge system and that in 1S90
Stieber, still st that date minister of
police in Germany, was sent through
France and subsequently established
a branch .'( the Qerman seiret police

terra, it w.ih explained, included the
detftruction Ol the strageticnl railways in France on the outbreak of
war, 1.' that the French mobilization
might be retarded. But this part of

vigilance   of    the French intelligence

most of the facts herein contained are

John Hyland, of Telegraph Creek,
an old Victoria boy, who for the past
15 years has had a place among the
prosperous business men of the Nort-
bar-' k£Tn c°nntry, has given some particulars of the enterprise as it stands
at the present moment. This fox
[arm, which is the first venture of
the kind in British Columbia, has
been established by the Cassiar Silver-Black Fox Farm company, which
was organized in the spring of this
year and incorporated under the laws
introduced by the Germans into Can-  °f the l»*°vince. Mr. Hyland

An illuminating survey of economic
conditions was presented under a
date ot some three weeks ngo by Mr.
L. G. Chiozza Money, M. P., well
known as an authority on such topics.
He holds that with the control ot
the sea complete, ind it is much
more complete now thuu when he
wrote, there is nothing for Britishers
to fear.
"The more the British economic
position is considered," he wrote, "in
this matter, the more confident we
become. We may be permitted to
speak of this side of the war because
our minds wer? entirely Iree from
material considerations when we entered upen it. As far as we are concerned, it is a great and just conflict,
and we nre honored for our part in
it by all the world outside of the
enemy Powers, and apart* from a few
curiously constituted individuals
within our own borders. Having
clean hands, it is good to be uble to
say that it is most unlikely that we
shall lose by tak'ing up arms in a
just cause. . . . Detent for Germany would set her back many years
and though by no means so disastrous as in our case would transfer
much of her shipping and commerce
to ourselves and others. Germany   is
Bending nearly all the world hy her
policv and it is idle to suppose that
Mich offense will not tell heavily
against her in thc time to come. She
bas outraged neutrals, and British
colonial sentiment will make the task
. I the Teuton bag-man in the British
dominions difficult or impossible Ior
many years. Germany, in short, has
taken a desperate course which is
likely to end in the loss of her shipping and the crippling of her commerce, and there must be gain to
those in a position to profit by her
lf this is true of Qreai Britain,
close to the war area as that country is, how much more fortunate is
Canada's position, particularly that
portion oi the Dominion m which we
live, where the war is bringing about
the  development      of  which   we  have
ost need? It is sending new people
out on to the bind and stimulating
larger production on tlie pari oi the

present, our prosperity has been due,
for the most part, to the money
which we have been able to borrow
in anticipation of actual production
on a large scale. But we had come to
the stage where we had to mark time
until the vast areas of hitherto unoccupied land with which we are sur-
■ rounded added very considerably to
our wealth.
We had built railways and cities at
tn unexampled rate. But we were not
liaising grain and cattle rapidly
enough to support these. Now,
thanks to the war, wc are going to
Ibe able to do this.
I The more we study the situation,
the more thoroughly convinced we

'it may he regarded from other standpoints.

that I know the guards out at the
crossing, and as they are passing almost every day, I have found them

Trusting this will clear them, I am,
Revelstoke, B.C. Sept. 18, 1914.
A  recruiting sergeant spoke to the
point when he    said:      "Wait till  we
get  one in the eye and  then see thc
boys roll in!"
This is evidently thc exact way
John Bull acted. Once the setbacks
on the Continent become plain and
thc British losses were published recruits flocked to the colors. At the
I,resent rate there will be little complaint of "slackers" in the days to
come.—New  York Tribune.
It is a pretty idea, 'if it can bc
given practical effect, that thc children of the United States should play
Santa Clans to the children of
Europe made orphans by the war. It
is estimated that by Christmas Day
nearly one million children will have
been rendered fatherless. Surely some
"truce of God" can bc arranged between the warring nations to give
these innocent victims of thc great
conflict some Christmas cheer.— Toronto World.

Mills Declare Speakers at
Trustees' Convention
In the neighborhood of -50 delegates
from the school boards in all parts
i of the province were in attendance ut
I the eleventh annual     convention     ol
• tlie British Columbia association     oi
School Trustees which opened at Ncl-
json on Tuesday. H. Manning aud A.
| Kenward were the delegates from thc
I Kevelstoke school board. Three ses-
sions were held on Tuesday, morning,
afternoon und evening und several
papers were presented dealing Witn
the educational question trom several
jn ii ii t s ol view. Thu morning session
was occupied with thc welcome ol the
delegates to tne city by Muyor Ma-
lonc lor the city council and W. G.
Foster for the board of trade, the
address oi the president of the .association and thc report oi the secretary.
The afternoon sjsa.on was tanen
iiji with the reau'.ng und discussion of
papers, "The Public School Course
as a Preparation for Life," by A.
Anstey, inspector of schools, and
"How the Rurul School May Maintain a Course ot Home and Farm
Teaching." The evening session was
held in the assembly hull of the public school when J. Kyle, A. R. C. A.
organizer ot technical education for
the province gave an illustruted lecture on "Industrial Education."
The session was opened by the
president, J.M. Wright of Armstrong,
who said that they una iouUiifiruU
the advisability of postponing the
convention but decided that in view
of the fact that conditions were like-
[ ly to be more lively at this time than
later it was decided to go ahead.
Wants Levy Limit Removed.
Mayor Malone said thut it was
with great pleasure that he welcomed
the delegates to the city and he
trusted that he felt sure the meeting
would result in a benetit to the
schools of the province. Discussing
the school law he said that there was
room for amendment there. The local
school board would understand conditions in Nelson aud would know-
that' the school act did not work
satisfactorily here. Thc government
limited the school tux levy to 7 mills
and it had been proved to Nelson
that it was impossible to run within
these limits. He could not understand
why these limitations had been placed and 'it was his opinion that the
municipalities should be allowed to
handle their own affairs in these matters.
Make Business Life Aim, He Says.
W. G. Foster, speaking for the
board of trade, suid that it was a
pleasure to each member ol that
tody to welcome the delegates to Nelson. He said that the work tbey nre
doing was of the utmost importance,
that no more important matter could
occupy their attention than that of
education. There was one thing, he
- said, that he would i'ike to bring to
the attention ot the members of the
various school boards. He would like
to impress upon them thc importance
of paying particular attention to the
f-tting of the younger generation for
a business life. There was more attention paid, he believed, at the present
time, to the fitting of young people
tor matriculation than there was to
' lifting them for a business career. He
•aid that he had had considerable experience in handling products ot the
public and h'igh schools system for
some years and was well acquainted
with the result of the* training.
He remarked that thc mayor in referring to the school act had touched
ipon a BUbJect that had heen outstanding for years. There should be
more co-operatlou between city councils and school boards. It was not
easy to keep a city going as matters
-food   now   and  at   that  the  ordinary
man thought    that     the taxes wer..
high.  It  a'.'ih fan   neither  to the coun-
• i nor the board for the levy to be
limited to ~ mills. All realized tbat
every child deserved a good education
ind he thought thai tbe law could ln
ome way be amended no that     the
amount required  by tbe board would
be provided as now. but thai the exact levy for this purpose be miidn
to the taxpayers when they received then tax notices, which under
i resent conditions gave no Indication
that the school cost waa greater than
7 mills und 'ii.'' the amount required
i.hove  that,   figure   was   taken   out      of
tbe rate for general purposes, which
most people thought was being used
for strictly civic purposes such as

spoke of the work accomplished by
the association since its inception In

The Fraser River Valley, with its
green grass practically the year round,

blcms that confronted them had the
effect of causing the trustees to
take more interest in tbe schoolR than
they otherwise would. He gave a report ol the resolutions submitted to
the government by the last convention and said that two ol those resolutions had been acted upon' and
that others were being considered by
the department. Those In regard to
night classes and rural district finances had been provided for in amend
ments to the act this year. Thc gov-
irnment had reported that it was unable to make any increase in grants
at present. He thought the resolutions were well drawn up and congratulated the resolution committee
upon its work.
He discussed the cost ol education.
The cost had increased and teachers'
•salaries had increased but the government was still behind the times
and thc grants remained the same.
This created.a hardship, particularly,
he pointed out, on the smaller communities and he thought that it was
time the government should come to
the front.
He deprecated the decrease in Attendance and said that the expenses
of the delegates should be provided
for. i
Education More Vocational.
Inspector Anstey in dealing with
his subject. "Thc Public School
Course As a Preparation Ior Lite,"
remarked that the school report for
1912-13 showed that there were .j 1,704
children in attendance in the public
schools of the province and 2,B'-0 in
the high schools, a ratio ol 20 to 1.
The high school work was being mnde
more vocational and agricultural,
technical and industrial education
was being introduced. Were the 11)
children who got no further than thc
public schools equipped for life? This
was a question of vitm Importance,
lb' pointed out that the object of
education wias threefold, first, ub regards the building ol the man; second, tlm worker; and third, thc
citizen.. The first and third were of
premier importance. Thc physical development was given much attention
and also the building of the citizen.
Mr. Anstey suid thut in attempting
to solve the question it should bc
asked what was expected of a child
leaving school to enter industrial life,
either to earn wages or to work in
the home. Thc child should be
brought into contact    with problems

that would develop the mind along
pructicul lines. He said there were
three definite things that the present
work of thc public schools should
autisly. They were, first, that a child
should huve a general Btock ol knowledge; second, au intelligent and sympathetic interest in processes in connection with certain vocations; third
u mental alertness and rcadiueBB to
apply himself to practical problems.
The teachers should spend half their
time teaching aud the other half in
producing mental alertness, and showing how to use what was learned.
The child should be taught; powers
of initiative.
Too Much Seat Work.
There should be a closer relation
between truBtces and teachera and tbe
tourses should be arrunged to conform to the peculiar industry of the
district. Thcre was perhaps too much
seat work and not enough hard work.

Many important resolutions were
presented by the resolutions committee, consisting ol MesBis. Row-
lauds, Connolly, Chamberlain, Coburn
aud Gill, among which were the following:
Resolved: Thut this associution recommend to the Government that
work on roads and public works
should be given to men who are on
the voters' list, and thut as far as
possible local bona fide settlers
should be employed, preference being
given to married men, und that supplies also be purchased locally.
Resolved: That. this associution
fully endorse the action of the Dominion Government in everything that
it has done to assist the Empire iu
the present crisis, and In view of the
recent statements mude by the First
Lord of the Admiralty we would urge
the Government to consider the advisability of naval as well as military aid.
Resolved: That this association endorse the action of Premier McBride
und his Government in the donation
they have already made to the Empire, and that we patricularly commend the action ol the    premier     in
tic demand was slack, the European
was absorbing our supply. Now that
very condition is our weakness. The
only thing is for our mines to curtail their output to about the domestic requirement. Already, they are
doing that. At present there is no
market for copper, but soon there
, will be, we hope, and some day we
' shall once more witness a big demand. We may only pray that it will
! not be delayed too long.
I OurMcad is chiefly marketed ut
home, but during the last six months
j our demand hus been poor and we
' have exported about -0,m)0 tons to
Europe, whose supply was shortened
by the absence of the Mexican output. Just before thc outbreak of the
war, things had straightened out in
northern Mexico, so that the American Smelting and Refining company
was considering resuming smelting
there. We should think that plan
might now be delayed. Anyway, we
are likely to have some accumulation
of domestic lead pending the self-adjustment of business to new condi-1
tions. although a demand for tbis
metal has continued right through
these evil days.
The producers of spelter have been
carrying thc largest storks in tbe history of their industry. Immediate
conditions may cause some of them
to want to realize. The spelter market is more a domestic market than
any other, and it is not unlikely to
make the Jiest showing during the
war. Important European spelter producing districts are iu the war zone.

Three Squares a Day
In spite of war and the horrors of war a vast number of Canadians are going to need "three squares a day" just as in
times of peace. They are geiing to need such things as clothing, fuel, etc., too and a surprising lot of them will go on buying luxuries as well.
The bottom hasn't fallen out of trade. On the contrary a
new bottom has been put in. Live advertisers are going after
the new business, new markets, new fields made possible by
this great and unfortunate   war.
Just as modern methods of warfare  will add new  efficiency, new
features to this war so modern methods     of    selling through
real advertising and merchandising will add new efficiency to
thc commercial effort set   in motion by the war.
American manufacturers have discovered that owing to the
shutting ofl of German exportations they have a brand new
market at their doors for such commodities as chemicals, drugs,
medicines, copper nnd manufactures, cotton goods, earthen
stone and China ware, glass and glass ware, malt liquors,
spirits, wines, silk manufactures, fruit and nuts, gloves, embroidery, hats, steel and iron manufactures, toys etc.
The American advertisers are re-adjustinir themselves with
wonderful rapidity and redoubling their efforts to secure new
trade heretofore denied them. Those who hesitate will lose a
tremendous opportunity and be handicapped for months perhaps
years, to come.
What about  us Canadians? I

F. W. Peters Makes Announcement Important to Columbia
Valley People
Announcement is made this morn-
by F. \V. Peters, general superintend-'
ent of British Columbia lines for the
C. P. R., thut the company will extend service on its Kootenay Central
line another 20 miles beyond Spil-
limacheen, the present terminus
south from Golden, when the new
winter time table is placed in operation on the system on September 21.
Mr. Peters returned from a trip of
Inspection over the new line on Saturday night.
The extension will give a tri-weekly
service between Golden and Kdge-
water, a distance of over 00 miles.
Spillimacheen is in miles from Golden
i nd trains have been in operation on
the section for several months. Construction work on the new branch,
which will afford the C.P.R. a new
connecting link between 'ts prairie
'and mountain divisions via the Crows
! Nest line, Port Steele and thc Koot- |
, enay Valley, is well advanced, steel i
having been laid twelve miles beyond
Edgewater and grading having been
finished to within a few miles ol Lake *
In response to an enquiry as to
when the entire line from the junction
point near Fort Steele north to Golden would he ready for operation,
Mr, Peters said the company expects
to complete thc new line early next
year. Pending the completion of a
bridge now under construction over j
the Columbia river beyond present
railhead from the western end of con-'
struction, he said it would bc difficult to mention specifically wIcr the
line would be finished.

statement that violent sportB und

danger of overheating in the harder
pastime, but this danger is also present in a lesser degree '.n the easier
