Kettle Valley Vv^   Not
Be Rival of ,   Jn Line
Route Through Revolstoke Will Remain Main Highway
for Canadian Pacific Railway Declares Vice-Presi
dent of Company -Soma Tourists May Use Alternative Route to Coast.
"Peoplei here should not get the
ideu thut this is to become the main
line" said George Bury, vice-prcaidont
ol the Canadian Pacific railway, at
Penticton. "The Canadian Pacific
railway would not spend a lortune
on thc Rogers Pass tunnel it it ever
intended to divert its main line traf-
fic. Under no present known conditions will this line become the company's main highway through British Columbia, although it will certainly be an important scenic route,
and also a valuable short line to the
coast and prairies tor the transportation ol iruit, timber and coal." he
said. "Next spring when traffic.
through to the coast via the Kettle Valley is commenced, the Canadian Tacific railway plans to put on
trains through southern British Columbia, running only in daylight
hours, for the special benefit of
tourists."
Discussing the proposed train service for tourists on the Kettle Val-
\ey line, the vice-president pointed
out that the company expected a
great increase In travel next year
owing to thc holding ol the   Panama
Pacific exposition. The Kettle Valley
and Crows Nest were to be leatured
in its literature, he said, as providing an alternative route to the main
line and travellers who oime west on
thc main line couid return via the
Kettle Valley, or vice versa. In order
to stimulate tourist traffic on this
new line, the Canndiun Pacific railway therefore planned to operate a
daily train leaving Vancouver early
in the morning and arriving here
early in the evening, he, added. This
train will be held ut Penticton, the
tourists thus being given a chance to
look over the city, to get an evening's trolling on the lake,     Md     to
I test  the  hospitality   of      the      local
i hotels.
The next night's stop would be     at
i Nelson, the train making connections
j at Medicine Hat with tbc main line
service on the third night. Similar
trains would he operated from Medicine Hat through to the coast, stopping one night at Nelson and the
next here. Thus there would be two
trains each day stopping all night in
Penticton during the tourist season,
according to the plan referred to by
Vice-President Bury.

After Naval Engagement
preat Britain suffered a
severe reverse ofl the coast of
Chile. In a 3H minute battle with live
German cruisers the British cruiser
Monmouth with ber entire crew of
658 men is reported to have been
sunk while tbe Good Hope, unother
cruiser, was last seen afire ln the
gathering night while the rain fell
heavily. It is believed that she also
sank. Tbe cruiser Glasgow and tbe
auxiliary cruiser Otranto reached
port after the engagement. Both are
declared to have been badly damaged. The German embassy In Washing,
ton heard that the cruiser Bristol also took purt in the flght, but the
despatches from Chile made no mention ol her.
The Good Hope    the    flagship    of
Rear Admiral     Sir Chistopber Orud-
dock carried IMKi men. The German
cruisers which enguged the British
vessels are said to have been the
Gneiseneau, Schanhorst, Nurnberg,
Licpsig and Dresden, a considerably
stronger fleet. The Gnelsoncau, Schanhorst and Nurnberg were reported to
have arrived at Valparaiso undamaged and with few casualties. The

Hallowe'en tea at Mis.-i Lawson's

Thc Girls' auxiliary ol tbe Methodist Ladies' aid held a very succesB-
fii 1 tea on Saturday afternoon in

room was very prettily decorated in
true Hallowe'en style. At one end ot
the room was a small stage, where
an orchcRtra dispensed sweet music.
This stage was nicely arranged with
draperies and bordered with rows ol
paper pumpkin grlnners. All the window ledges were banked with autumn
leaves and ears of corn, with mina-
ture pumpkin grinnera and lighted
candles. The small tables of which
there were five, were in charge of
Misses Dorothea Little, Jean Patric,
Marjorie Fleetham, Maud Hopgood

pinned on the white damask table
iloths and on each table was a candle in pretty brass candlestick and
hrnss shade. The culinery table was
1 richt with a centrepiece of beaut'iful
dahlias in a large silver basket and

Miss Sheila Dickey; violin. Miss Morton. At each of the small tables were
pretty cards, thc work ol Miss Sheila
Dickey, which read:
"Thank you dear Iriends, one nnd all,
For helping us on our way,
For our success, whether grent or
small
Is due to your presence here, today."
Should listen, in death's prescience so
vlv!d,
And hear a lalry sound bloom like
a flower.
1 like to think tbat soldiers, bravely
dying
For the white Christ on BeldB with
shame sown deep,
May hear the fairy click ot women's
needles.
As they  lall fast asleep.
KATHERINE HALE
EDITOR ON
WAY TO WAR
Garland Foster True Patriot-
Did   Good   Work   in
Nelson
GREY  KNITTING
All through the country   in the   autumn stillness,
A web of   grey spreads   strangely,
rim to rim;
And you may hear the sound ol knitting needles
Incessant, gentle, dim.
A tiny click of little wooden needles,
Elfin amid the gianthood of war;
Whispers ol women, tireless and
patient,
Who weave the web alar.
Whispers ol women, tireless and
pnt'ient—
"Foolish, inadequate!" we hear you
Bay;
"Grey wool on fields ol hell Is out of
fashion."
And yet. wc weave the web from day
to day.
Suppose some soldier dying brovely
dying,
Under thc alien skies, in his   lust
hour,
W. Garland Foster, who lor some
! time has acted ub editor-mamager of
' the Nelson News, is in the city of
I Fernie, und expects to journey to the
front with the second contingent,
says the Fernie D.strict Ledger.
I Mr. Foster has been in charge ol
the Nelson News for nearly six years
and during that period the paper has
heen much improved, while the job
printing portion ol the business has
also been most successfully manuged.
Mr. Foster iB a capable writer and a
very thorough and systematic business manuger, und under him the
plant and paper enjoyed a period of
prosperity which had previously been
denied. He not only brought the paper up to date and gave the paper a
reputation that extends throughout
Canada, but he also reorganized and
equipped the commercial end ol the
business, with the result thnt thc
Nelson News Company has today one
ol the be6t job printing businesses
between the coast and Calgary.
There is possibly no man in Nelson
who is held in higher esteem thut tbe
late editor, and it would be difficult
to find a man in that district, who
knew him personally, that could not
speak in terms of the highest of his
ability and fairnesB.
In volunteering Mr. Foster has proved the courage of his convictions;
be has shown that having principles
and shouting them is not enough—he
is ready to make the greatest sacrifice possible to comlort and position
to vindicate his belief. This is real
courage, and shoull prove to many
ol the business men in Fernie and
elsewhere, who hnve expressed a desire to volunteer, that one man has
solved the difficulty ol the business
question and gone. It has been said
in our hearing more than once by
certain individuals that they are
quite willing to go to the front hut
"they do not know what would happen to their business." ' .
Without being too severe on those
making this excuse, we fear it is very
much a queseion of "they don't know
what would happen to their hides."
We personally hnve pleasure in
congratulating Mr. Foster, not because we love war, but because we
recognize that the man who will otter his life for his convictions has
"mude the greatest sacrifice possible.
Couruge must always he admired
whether it is expressed in fighting on
the battlefield or the political field.
We wish Mr. W. Garland Foster a
safe return.

A report has been current around

A very nice shoot of ore both concentrating and high grade, has been
openod on the Great Northern property, near Trout Lake, according to
H. McPherson. who was down last
week. The ore body is about seventy
feet long and averages in the neighborhood of four feet in width. Mr.
McPherson nnd his assocfiatcs, who
have a bond on the property, have
secured an extension.
G. 0. Buchanan, lead bounty commissioner, writes that he has been in
correspondence with the Department
of trade arnd commerce as to altered
conditions in the lead market but so
far has had no instructions except
approval of the course he has taken
of carrying forward the last recorded quotation upon the London metal
exchange (that of July 30th) as ruling until another is made. This
quotation was LIS, 15s, which is
above the bounty limit.
No Ainsworth ol Slocan district

The output of the Rund mines for
September was 702,170 fine ounces,
valued at 88,080,030, This compares
with an output of 711,'.117 fine ounces

The Union mine, In Franklin camp,
on Wednesday Inst shipped its first
car of ore since the clorflng down of
tbe Qranby smelter. The ore wus sent
to the Consolidated company's smelter at Trail. The Union will probably ship about two curs a month.
A big Quartz strike is now reported
trom the Siboli creek country in the
Coast range in the same district in
which it was reported last fall that
placer had been found. As a result of
the quartz find there has been quite
a rush to the district, including
many of the most reliable prospectors, and some old-time Yukon and
Alaska gold men.
Granite Creek placer camp, the
scene of many historic episode and
gold stampedes of bygone days, has
lost nothing of its mineral attractions. It is the opinion ol experienced gold hunters that the placers
I there are by no means exhausted, and
that both bar and bench diggings
win well repay systematic mining.
Some large nuggest and coarse gold
with platinum have been taken trom
the creek this summer. Miners have
bad satisfactory returns from pay-
streaks, and all are encouraged with
the season's operations. It is estimated that about S*">,000 in gold and
platinum have been extracted from
the creek this season.

"Economic Advertising'"
"It is keeping everlastingly at it—the quiet, continuous brand of publicity that worries its way
through to success in the long run and it is dillicult
to find any justification for breaking the continuity
of advertising during hot weather.
"Clothes have to be worn and the necessaries of
life provided for, and almost every article with the
exception of purely seasonable goods is in equal demand in the summer as in the winter.
"Then, again, in the summer people do not work
so hard—there is more leisure time, and just because
they have more time for reading it is logical to state
that they have more time for reading advertising.
"To the modern housewife any respite from the
glaring pavements is welcome. She reads the advertising columns of the local paper, and makes it her
shopping guide, especially in the summer. Missing
at this time is losing momentum which will take
considerable time and expense to regain at a later
date."

Mexico seems to be almost a hopeless case. When Madero succeeded
Dial he found a new insurrection,, and.
finally fell a victim to a party lead
by one of his own    lormer pretended

aeainst him a new group of Constitutionalists led by Carranta and
commanded by Villa. Huerta was
compelled to resign and Carranza became provisional president. Now
Villa is his chief enemy. A convention it suppoBeed to be meeting for
the election of a new provisional
president. Villa has gathered an
army near, and Carranza charges
that his former chief of staff is using
the army to dictate the choice. Mexico knows nothing of the choice ot
provisional or Constitutional presidents elected otherwise than by the

Faribault, Minn., haB been elected
bishop of the Protestnnt Episcopal
diocese ot New Jersey nt a special
meeting ol the diocesan convention.
He succeeds tho late Bishop John
Scarborough. Bishop Charles H.
Brent, of the Philippine IslundB, a
native ol Coluirg, Ontario, was elected to the bishopric last,May, but declined the oflice.
Canada's example in instituting
free distribution of forest tree seedlings, cuttings, etc., to prairie homesteaders for planting aB shelter-belts,
etc., bids fair soon to be lollowed by
the United States department ol agriculture. Thc nroBpcct is that thiH
distribution will bc made from tbe
newly established Field Station at
Mandan, N.D. Mr. W.A. Peterson, the
superintendent of thc station, lately
visited the Dominion Forestry
Branch's Nursery station at Indian
Head, Sask. in order to investigate
Canadian methods of carrying out
thc enterprise.
Berlin papers now reaching London
bear evidence of the increasing tirades of the Germans against Great
Britain. The immediate cause of this
fresh outbursts is thc damage done
to German ships interned at Antwerp immediately before tbe evacua-
tiori. The Lokul Anzclger declares
that Germany w'ill get over tltfs loss,
but demands she shall reply by acting always and everywhere on the
same principle. It declares it must be
clear to every German that "there
can bc no peace and no rest for us
on earth until wc have had a final
and satisfactory settlement with the
nation  of  Britons."
"Canada's gilt-edgod oamp" Is the
title u London journal glVII to the
Canadian contingent's quarters at
Salisbury Plain. The writer .calls
Canadians splendid specimens of manhood, and this verdict iB confirmed
by Londoners who saw many of
them on leave in London streets recently. What immediately dlstineguish-
es the Canadians from the home
force iB the bine shoulder straps
bearing the words, "Canada" in gilt
letters. Englishmen are especially
struck by the tact that Canadian
privates get four shillings and sixpence daily, while the British private gets thirteen pence only.
The plight of thc Belgian people,
both at home and in Holland, Bri-
! tain and France is stirring the hearts
nnd minds already distraught bv the
horrors of war. Figures are neces-
barily vague but a conservative estimate is that 1,900,000 Belgians, out
of a population of i7,Oo",iK)n have been
expatriated. Lord Gladstone's committee says 70,060 arrived in London
during tlie last week and the women's reliel committee, which sent a
ship to Holland last week, reported
that in eight cities of Holland the
refugees number nearly 500,000, In
other words, they are more numerous
than the native population.
Fred Stobert, formerly of Winnipeg, who has been sent Irom London
as purchasing agent for the British
government, is getting in touch with
manufacturers all over Canada. Representatives from nearly all the
mills in the country  which  manulac-
ture the goods now required have arrived. It is understood tbat materials now being quoted on consist ol a
million sweater coats, a million pairs
of grey worsted socks, a mll'ion
pairs of heavy underdrawers and a
hall million heavy English army
shirts. No delivery hns been specified,
but samples are to be submitted as
soon us possible, accompanied by
particulars regarding thc capacity ol

Having earned the reputation of
making the longest voyage of any
steam vessel plying between New
York and British Columbia the Maple
Leaf liner Buenaventura, Captain
Fitsimmons, arrived at Victoria last
week. The length ol her voyage was
caused by the war. When she arrived
in port 180 days bad elapBed since
the left New York. She was transferred to American registry when Bhe
was held up at Valparlso, at which
port she swung at anchor from July
ill to September 17. This is the second voyage of the Buenaventura to
British Columbia ports and1 she

The sending of a contingent ol a
thousand or two thousand naval volunteers, in addition to the military
forces, Is the suggestion which bas
been made to the government Irom
Vancouver. There is now n naval volunteer force of only about 20° men at
the coast in addition to those serving on the Rainbow. They want this
increased to I.ihhi and suggest that a
contingent be raised on the Pacific
and Atlantic coasts and Great Lakes
of fishermen, yachtsmen, and men
used to the water, to accompany the
next expeditionary army. They would
j have to complete their training in
England, but it is pointed out that
a force of this character would be as
valuable as the military expedition,
as men are needed for the new ships
Great Britain ie building, and to
supply wastage The matter is under
consideration.

Sir William Osier, Regius prolessor
of medicine at Oxford, and 6ince the
beginning of the war in close super-1
vieory touch with the hospital work
In England, relerrlng to tbe mortal-,
ity in the present wer recently said:
"I think this war w-.ll set a new re-
cord for low mortality among the
wound-ad. Formerly, with tbe best
Brit aid and hospital work, a mor- j
tality record of 5 or 6 per cent of
these who reached the base hospitals
was Considered creditable. Dp to date
there has been but one latality out
of more than 700 wounded who have
reached the base hospital at Oxford.
This death was canned by tetanus.
The result is partly due to the self-
sterilization of the modern high
velocity bullet, and partly to efficl-1
ent field first aid. I bave yet to see
the wound inflicted by either a dumdum or an explosive bullet."
At the last meeting of the Van-
couv?r school board a letter was read
Irom Dr. Alexander Robinson, super- j
intendent ot education at Victoria, ln
which he asked the board to advise"
J.J. Dougan, a xnenfter of the board,
to "cease his mischievous activity
throughout the province" on behalf
of bis teachers' agency. The writer
continued: "Mr. Dougan has evidently visited many of the schools along
