native country, New Zealand. For
over an hour the audience listened to
a cleverly worded description ol this
land, its scenery, climate, people and
government In regard to the wealth
of the country, aud the nattves most
people, the lecturer said, have
strange misconceptions. New Zealand
was first colonized in 1S3'.» by Eug-
lish. Scotch and Irish, who have left
the impress of their nationality in
the names of tbe cities, streets rivers
and lakes. Dunedin, the lovely capital, on the south island is a second
Kdinburgh in beauty of situation and
architecture, as well as in the names
of its streets. Here the Scottish Sabbath is observed with that ancient
■severe simplicity, almost lorgotten
in  tho mother land.
Politically, the country enjoys
home rule, tier loyalty und line imperial spirit have been manifested
many times, but never more noticeably than during the Boer war and
lately in making the first presentation of a colon'ial dreadnought to
the British navy. There is no aristocracy, the legislative assemblies are
proud ol their democracy, and have

lecturer attributed thc absence in
New Zealand of mnmy social evils
which are tolerated here, to the Influence of their women voters.
Wool in the grent export, followed
closely in value with frozen meat
and butter, "yet" added Mr. Brown,
"the emblem ol New Zealand Is neither a sheep nor a put of butter."
A bird of strange design and name
is the local design.
The scenic marvels are so varied
that the wonder is one small land
1*300 miles long by 160 wide can contain • them. Glaciers, geysers, hot
mud, lakes and springs, with medicinal waters, attract many tourists.
The bays, mountains and forests are
of surprising bcniity.
Living is cheap and wages good.
Meat prices run from I to 8 cents
Iter pound and butter 20 cents. The

Maoris concluded the nddrest, the
war cry of natives and their funeral

pereson or rersons it present unknown effected an entrance into the
premi-ses occupied by Ford Tyler &
Co. .uid W. C. Kellington, by cutting
a hole in the door at the rear large
enoueh tc get their hand in and open tbe lock, and took away with
tbem a quantity of goods. Mr. Tyler
was the heavier loser, the robbers
taking away an automatic revolver
and a quantity of other articles, valued altogether at about $150, while
W. O. Kellington lost eome canned
gooHs, etc. At time of writing no
clue has been obtained as to tbe
parties who forcibly entered the premises but many suspicious t
ters who were known to Im In the
city about that time are being located.
Thanks to prompt and energetic action taken by thc Hon. Dr. Young,
provincial secretary, there is an excellent prospect that many obstacles
which conlronted the path of BritiBh
Columbia producers in the timber
trade, in respect to overseas markets, will shortly be removed. The
Minister has received a cable Irom
D. H. Ross. Canadian trade commissioner at Melbourne, Australia, containing an explanation relative to
the matter of lumber to be used in
the new capitol lnrildingB ol thc Commonwealth. The explanation is highly satislactory. A couple of days ago
the minister lodged a protest with
the Australian authorities against
I the proposal to have British Columbia producers place their bids for
I supplying 25,000,000 feet of lumber in
the hands of the commission at San
Francisco. Mr. Ross assures the provincial government that the matter
can be adjusted to the satisfaction of
the timber interests of this province.
Taking advantage of the presence
at Ottawa of Sir Richard McBride,
Dr. Young a few days ago forwarded
the Premier a telegram to the following effect:
Representations at Ottawa.
"Startling figures have been laid
before me relative to conditions affecting the lumber trade. I suggest
that you stronuly urge Sir George
Foster to negotiate with Australia
for a preference tarifl. In South Africa the 10 per cent, tarifl on lumber
has had a most beneficial effect in
stimulating trade. British Columbia
supplies 64 per cent of the lumber imports. At. present large orders from
.Australia to Puget Sound and San
Francisco are likely to be filled out
of logs now being shipped from this
province. Lust year shipments from
Washington and Oregon to Australia
were nearly 2*'. times greater than
Irom British Columbia."
To this Sir Richard McBride replied
as follows: "Have conferred with the
minister of trade and commerce relative to the lumber trade. He is very
-greatly impressed with your statement and will at once make representations to the Australian government. Have a statement prepared in
duplicate and forwarded through provincial government to the premier
and minister here."
Favors Preferential Tarifl
"I am very    hopeful,!'     said     Dr.
Young,   "that some good results will
immediately flow from   the     present
I united efforts that are being made to
| place the lumber     Industry    in     this
i province on a better basis in respect
to conditions under which     competi-
] t ion must be met     in    the overseas
! markets.  As Sir George Foster, min-
j ister of trade and    commerce,     with
I whom  Sir Richard McBride has   just
bad   it, interview,  only recently     returned frrm a tt'ip to Australia,     it
. is certain  that he has now a     clear
1 understanding of the whole situation,
and he should be able to make    such
representations in the matter I      the
government of the Commonwealth as
jrill be very helpful.
"Personally   I  would  like to    have
the  Canadian   government      endeavor

•e-i lumber.  It has worked    well
in  th<- '   iOtttb Afrir.,.   where we.

Empire  unity  greatly  stimulated  as a
result  of the war.  fellow  Britons   in
j Australia  will.   I  fee!  sure     be     dis
posed to stand shoulder to shoulder
with us in matters ol trade and commerce. Therefore this may prove to
be the psychological moment for us
to press the point upon their attention. With the matter in the able
hands of Sir George Foster, we
Bhould be able to get thc best possible results at the earliest date."

There ar? many     astute    investors
scattered throughout the country who
have learned     that    rational investment in mining is the most profitable
avenue  through     which large profits
may   reasonably   be   expected to   accrue Irom modest sums,     says     the
Nevada Mining News. Their number is
small compared to the hundreds     ot
thousands ol men and women ol   ordinary means who put their money in
savings banks and low interest   rate
bonds, or pay inflated prices for railroad or industrial stocks,     but    the
number is growing   every year. This
is especially true since the spasm   of
speculation of    six,     seven   .nd eight
years ago gave way to the new   era.
ln those feverish times mining was a
j gamble and    the     average promoter
played the stock market for his profits. Nowadays it is     didcrent.     The
promoter who    stayed     with mining
through the lean years thut followed
the Goldtield boom, a period of feverish excitemomt which fortunate,y  was
summarily ended by the panic of seven years ago.     is     made    of sterner
stuti. He is lu the     mining busfinoss
because  he realizes the large returns
that are certain when success crow is
his etlorts. During the lean period he
has not Deen idle and has found that
these same dull days have worked to
his advantage     in one way, namely,
that claim owners     are much more
reasonable in their demands   than in
the days of old,     when almost     any
showing   would    satisfy the sharper,
who merely wanted a certain acreage
on which to sell stock. He haB found,
also, that the science of   metallurgy
hus made wonderful advances, in consequence of which ore   that formerly
could not be mined and shipped   and
smelted at a    profit    now     may be
counted upon for     certain dividends.
He has 'found that railroad rates arc
lower,  timber is cheaper and electric
power lines have penetrated     almost
every part of thu     wilderness.     The
mining promoter, there.ore,     is able
to present to     the     public a mining
proposition with all the     dishonesty
and mucn of the risk of former   days
eliminated,  but st'ill  possessing     the
possibility of profit of several   hundred per cent.

British Dried Apple
Market is Hooded
A report received hy the trade and
commerce bourd from the Canadian
trade ana commerce department in
London indicates that there is not
much opportunity this year for the
hoped-for murkct for Canadian
evaporated apples in the British market Before the war Germany placed
in the United atates a large order
Ior evaporated apples, doubtless having in view their use as a necessary
and convenient fruit lood supply lot
the army But the American shippers
found it impossible to fill the contracts before the outbreak of the
war and now delivery to Germany is
found impossible owing to transportation conditions. The store In hand
is now being oflered at low prices to
Great Britain, where the market is
already flooded. Mr. Watson reports
that, im view of the low prices now
ruling for evaporated apples there is
little chance for a profitable trade
being worked up this year by Canadian shippers.

When will it end? This is a frequent and natural subject of conversation during these trying days; and
it affords room for many differences
of opinion. It doesn't make very
much difference, says the Montreal
Star, what date we set for the cessation of Hostilities, provided we
are very careful not to set in motion
even the smallest current of opinion
in favor of ending the war before it
is over. The great thing to keep in
mind is our duty t.i endure whatever
losses or sacrifices may be required
of us to enable the soldiers in the
field to reap the full benefits oi their
immeasurably greater losses and sacrifices by bringing in a real peace—
and not merely a truce or armistice.
We may be very sure that the
fighting men will not be ior peace
until permanent peac3 is possible.
They will not flinch or grow weary

New York Times: The Germans
profess to have been deeply disappointed by our failure to give them
our sympathy in the ,wai. "..hey have
tried to persuade us that England is
perfidious. Russia barbarous, the
French merely envious nnd rcvenge-
ful. They have also presented to us
the doctrine of German culture ol the
right of the Germans to work out
their imperial destiny according to
their high aspirations. Their representative spokesmen give us unmistakable warning of what the achievement of their ambitions would mean

sec  what it would mean for us.
Louisville Courier-Journal: What
else is the dropping of B bomb into
the heart ol a city but murder? If
the American embassy had been destroyed and the Hon. Myron T. Her-
rick, the American ambassador, kill-
til, why might not the government of
the United States—with as good reason as the kaiser's imperial government had to authorize the throwing
of the bombs in Paris—have the right
to take Count von Bernstorff, the
Germau ambassador, to the top of
thc Washington monument or the
dome of the capitol and IHng him
headlong to the earth? The murder
would not bc more heinous in tbe one
case tha.n in the other. It is murder
pure and simple; in its authors coldblooded and calculated; in its victims cruel and wanton; such only as
read of in the tales of the Iroquois,
the Senecas and the Wyandottes. The
ghosts of the braves look from their
happy hunting grounds amazed. We
have called it the war of thc kaisers.

Sons ol the land we live in,
Bravest and best we know,
Shall it be said we give iu,
Staying wh le others go?
From age to ugc the old land
Battled to keep us free,
Raising the flag ut each strand
Emblem ol liberty.
Rally  round1      Don't   you   hear the
bugle  culling.
Rally round boys, rally round,
Rally round, though bitter tearB are
Duty bound, boys!  Duty bound!
To the ate and tbe drum they'll soon
be marching,
Homeward  hound,  boys!      Homeward bound,
Tommy bold and jolly Jack,
Will get a hearty welcome back,
So rally round, boys!  Rally round.
Sunds ol ihe east have claimed them,
Men who could do and die.
History has fearless named them,
Teaching the reason why!
True to the flag that led them.
Paying to rule the wave;
Mothers who bore and bred tbem,
Bravely  and freely gave.

Okanagan Crop is

This season's crop of the Okunuigun
Valley will fur exceed in bulk the output ot any previous year, according
to such figures us are available from
tho Vernon Fruit Union, and from
Cnnadlau Pacilic railway freight
Apples, especially, axe running
heavy this year. The Vernon Fruit
Union, it is estimated, will bundle,
in bulk, lully as many apples as in
1918, despite the lact that this year
they do not have the handling of the
big crop of the Coldstreum Estate
Other comparative figures nre:

To date the Vernon Fruit Union has
handled more than 50,000 boxes of
apples, and has sent out, roughly,
about 3.r)0 carloads ol fruit, and
about 10 carloads of vegetables and

Hcuvy Express Shipments.
The Vernon Fruit Union sent out
this season, by express, the equivalent of more than six carloads of soft*
fruits. Reliable authorities estimate
the apple production of the valley
this year ub 25 per cent heavier than
the production of 1013. Independent
dealers, it is estimated, have already
shipped out about 140 carloads of
fruit, and produce.
Carload freight shipments from the
different points of thc valley arc not
a reliable index of the uctual export tonnage this year, for much of
the truit and produce from other sections comes firBt to Vernon for re-
shipment in the making up of carload orders received by tbe Central.
Okanagan Landing, however, reports having handled f')35- cars ol
fruits nnd vegetables since June 30;
Armstrong reports live cars of apples, 3.10 cars ol mixed fruit and
vegetables, eight cars ol hay, six
cars of wheat, and from two to three
tons of celery exported daily by express. Enderby nns shipped out 24}
tons of apples for re-Bhipment, one

In addition Endcrbv has Bent out

During Fourty-Four Years Ten

During the years 1878 until 1911
there were 2,:i*J3 attempted suicide*

In the last eleven years '2,Hliil Boi-

which consisted of an annual uveraga
of 700 ytairs in prison sentences or a,
total of S.i'iO years for the entire)
11 years. And 'in 11 years from Will

amounted to 33,000 years.
Two thousand nine hundred an*
eighty-two soldiers are annually punished for military insubordination.

I WH) prison sentences were pronouncadj
upon officers  in the past 41 years.
In other words, thiB means that in
round numberB lOO.uou years of prison life have been thc result of tho
German military system in 10 yearn.
During 14 years 10,439 soldiers art-
ually committed suicide, principally
to avoid punishment or brutalitieB of
some kind or another. Every year
from -220 to -III soldiers put an end
to their lives because tbey cannot endure the cruel treatment of their
superiors. In this same period ol
time 1S9,J0-J were so seriously injured
in the army ln time of peace aB to
have to be discharged from service;
0.076 of these accidents resulted fatally.
The cuuse ol this barbarism is tne
iron discipline, which degrades unwilling men into instruments, tran^
forming thero into mere tools in tha
hnnds ol their superior officers. Bad
treatment, torture and humiliations
kill the love of life in these youths.—
