organizer of technical education and
J. W. Gibson, director of elementary
agriculture, will give addresses in
the high school tomorrow evening on
technical education and agriculture
in the school to which all interested
ure Invited.
Mr, Kyle reached the city yesterday
from the south. He attended the
school trustees convention in Nelson
and afterwards visited Trail and
Rossland, where the idea of starting
evening classes in technical education
wus enthusiastically adopted. The
subjects most favored there were:
mining, assaying and mineralogy.
Mr. Gibson will reach the city this
afternoon, he having visited Creston
and Kaslo on his way to Revelstoke.
i Mr. Kyle suggests that evening
classes in technical education should
be started under the auspices of the
school board, .^uch subjects as engineering, building construction, carpentry, mineralogy and practical
arithmetic being taught. The classes
would be in charge o: experts ia
each suh.ect secured locally and
would increase the knowledge and efficiency of workers in the various
subjects taught, The classes would be
made interesting and practical and
would induce young men leaving
school to continue their education
while at work.
Mr, Gibson in his lecture will deal
w th the advantage 'of teaching agriculture in the sc ools In many
schools each child is allotted a plot
of land and is taught to cultivate it
a love of nature being practically inculcated.
Today, Mr. Kyle and A. E. Miller,
inspector of schools, are visiting employers of labor, the heads of labor
nn oi - and others likely to be interested in technical education and
tomorrow they will visit rural
schools  in  the neighborhood.

J. 0. Cameron  Explains Difficulties Confronting lhe
" Unquestionably the war hns at-
fecteil the lumber trade of British
Columbia seriously," observed J. 0,
Cameron, of the Cameron Lumber
company. He stated that his com-
imny's mills would be operating at
their capacity, instead of with a
skeleton crew over a short day, were
it not for the impossible conditions
with which the management was confronted. Three extraordinary demands
had made it impossible to meet what
orders were ollered and make a pro-
tit, or even "break even.*' They were:
the large increase In freight rates by
the steamship companies; the war insurance; and thc advance in the ex.
change. "We would be glad enough
to take busiiuss it assured of nothing
else than evenly balanced books after the transaction. That, at least
would enable us to keep our men together, but, as it is, the outlook,
candidly, is not promising."
Mr. Cameron bezan discussing the
situation as the result ot an inquiry
as to whether British Columbia lumber merchants were able to take advantage of the British market, which
as a result of the closing of the
North Sea aad the shutting off ol
the supply from the Scandinavian
peninsula, 'is ready to absorb extensive shipments. He asknowlcdged
that, If the transportation facilities
were satisfactory, the lumber of the
province would find a ready sale in
the old country.
"But," he continued, "transportation is impossible. II it were not Ior
the 'xci'ssive jumping ol freight rates,
together with the insurance and the
exchange, our mills at this moment
would he working full blast in the
filling of an order for 3,."»00,0iUI feet
of lumber for Delagoa Bay, South
Africa. The best quotation wc could
obtain from any British Columbia
firm was 71s. Bd. per 1,000 feet,
which is 8-1 per 1,000 higher thun prevailed before the outbreak of hostilities. To those who know anything
about the lumber trade, or are engaged in commerce of any k'ind, it is
unnecessary to say that such an additional tax must have a very harmful  ;eflect on business..'
Advance Unreasonable.
Mr. Cameron declared that he could
not understand the position of the
steamship companies. To say that
they were advancing the rate in order
to assure protection against the added dangers of the high seas appeared
to him absurd. The British Government, he understood, offered insurance on ocean going vessels. It
amounted to about 2 per cent. Placing • ii . slue of a ship at $2 U Q ".

School Trustees Pass Resolution Declaring Faith in Justice of Empire's Cause
At the convention of the British
Columbia school trustees at Nelson,
last week, which was attended by H.
Manning and A.. Kenward, the following resolution wins passed:
"Whereas the British empire, of
which we, as Canadians, are proud to
belong, is ut war with the German
anil  Austrian empires,  and
"Whereas the success ol the British
arms and those of the Umpire's allies
is essential to the interests of civilization and to maintenance of honor
and honest dealing between nation
and nation, ami
'•Whereas the educational system ot
this province, a system which, born
of the democratic principles under
which the Empire has grown and
flourished, gives to all the advantage
of education without regard to race,
color or religion, could only have
heen developed under that measure of
Uritish liberty which we enjoy and
which is now threatened;
"Therefore be it now resolved that
this convention of the British Columbia association of school trustees,
while deploring the awful loss of
life which is taking place and the terrible suffering and ruin which is being
occasioned, both of which must continue to the cessation of hostilities,
desire to place themselves on record
as urging the government of Canada
to grant every possible measure ol
support to the Empire, that the destructive war now raging may be
brought to a conclusion at the earliest possible moment ln a manner
which shall make for the permanent
peace of the world and for the
abandonment (or all time ot the
struggle for supremacy in armaments
which Qerman militarism has forced
upon the Empire and upon other
civilized countries;
"And be it further resolved that we
herewith declare our faith in the justice of the Empire's cause, toward
the triumph of which we, us British
subjects, look forward with every
confidence, firm in that oelicl that
this is essential to the continuance of
British lib?rty, thc maintenance ol
honor among nations and the i d-
vancement of enlightened civilizotiejn
throughout the world..'

British sailormen are at a loss to
understand why the German Sect
avoids a grapple in the North Sea.
Were the conditions reversed His
Majesty's navy would have dashed at
the blockading squadrons regardless
of numbers. The consideration of
odds against it never has entered into its calculations. It would have coordinated its operations with taose
of the army. Assuredly it would uot
have remained quiesC3nt while tue
enemy was transporting troops to
attack its country's armies on land.
What has been the offect of von
Tirpitz's naval strategy on the land
campaign. In the first place it enabled Great Britain to land In France
three corps ot the finest lighting
troops in the world to aBsist the
armies of General Jofire. The expeditionary force had just enough time
to take its position on the French
left along the Sambre, and no more.
Its presence there accounted for the
failure of von Kluck's army to outrank the defenders, who at that time
were numerically inferior along their
whole front. Had the British force
not been in that struggle disaster alii., st inevitably would have overtaken the armies of France; Plan 2
ivould have been a startling success
instead of a failure and the Germans
would have begun the investment ul
Paris under the most favorable aus-
1 ices.
A lelay of two or three days in the
r.rrival of the British expeditionary
force, therefore, might have been
fatal for the French. Hail the Gel
man fleet co-operated with the Ger-
irmy, as the British navj
ive done in    similar circumstances,
I that delay almost certainly would
have occurred. For although the
K.user's fleet would have been beaten
decisively, some of his ships probably would have escaped. It would be
impossible to destroy the second
largest navy in the world with oue
blow, and as long us auy ol its effectives were on the high seas the
transport of troops from Britain to
France would have been interrupted.
In I ill) I Lord Nicholson, the director
if intelligence, thought that it would
ake from four to six months before
Britain could obtain absolute command of the sea. It is well known
that a mass of transports and warships is the most cumbersome ami
vulnerable war engine known. During
the Russo-Japanese war a report
reached Tokio that the Russian fleet
had escaped from Port Arthur in a
snowstorm, and the transportation
of Japanese troops to Manchuria was
interrupted for some weeks in COnse
quence of that rumor. In the war of
the United States against Spain a
similar report held up the transportation of General Shafter's army from
Key West to Santiago until the
rumor could be veriiied. lt is obvious
then, that had the German ships
broken through, the movement ol our
troops to France would have been
delayed, aud thnt delay might have
given the Kaiser the decisive victory
over the French he and his stall had
been counting on.
It is this inco-ordinutiou of the
policies of the German army and
navy which accents the futility of
thc German hope of a successful outcome ol the war Even the Spaniurds
showed more enterprise. They sent
their fleet across the Atlantic to protect Cuba, knowing it would have to
meet a navy superior iu every detail.
In dispatching their Baltic squadron
to the Far East against Japan the
Russians courted a similar fate, but
ii. both cases it was realized that
unless the navy operated in full accord with the army it was no better
than a toy.
Un the other hand, this war has
exhibited no more striking feature
than the calm, confident guarantee
given by the British admiralty to
the British war oflice. No doubt. Earl
Kitchener     said   to  tlie  navy  lords:
We desire t.i dispatch an expeditionary figie to the continent at once,
delay might lie fatal. Can ymi guarantee its safety'" Apparently the reply of th.- admiralty was. "Yes." No
other navy in the world could have
given tt nl guarantee. The Germans
must h.-iie- been aware of what was
happening. Yet, is far as -.ve know.

A number of Canadian newspapers,
the Vancouver Saturday Sunset being among the latest, have been finding fault with the delay in sending
the Canadian contingent to Edrope.
Considering the size of the task of
making arrangements for so large a
body of men and the necessity of putting so many of them through a

Is not this demonstration ol loyalty by the princes and people of India, in the lace of the whole world, a
grand proof of the solidarity ol the
Empire in every peril which threatens
it? And if such proofs of devotion are
produced ainongBt a people whose
color, race, ideals and traditions are
completely foreign to those of England, why should anyone be astonished that the French-Canadians, to
whom England has given almost
complete autonomy, who are guaranteed respect for their language, their
religion and their laws, should also
be ready to defend it with their
blood and their goods when thc Em-
ire is in  peril'—Le Canada.
Today the legend ol perfidious Albion is dead. By taking up the gunge

Three Squares a Day
In spite ol war and the honors ol war a valt number of Canadians arc going to need "three squares a day" just aa in
times ot pence. They are ge'ing 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 ure going after
the new business, new markets, new fields made possible by
this great and unfortunate   war.
Just us modern methods of warfare will add new efficiency, new
features to this war so modern methods     of   selling through
real advertising and merchund'ising will add new efficiency to
the commercial effort set   in motion by the war.
Americnn manufacturers have discovered that owing to the
shutting otl ol German expertations they have a brand new
mnrket at their doors for such commodities ns chemicals, drugs,
medicines, copper and 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 Americnn advertisers nre re-adjusting 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.

Judge Thompson Quotes Decisions—Naturalization of Germans Invalid, He Says
While some judges are granting naturalization papers to German and
Austro-Hungarlan citizens others are
refusing naturalization to citizens of
hostile countries. In Revelstoke
Judge Forin has granted naturalization to Austrians und Germans while
in Fernie Judge Thompson has refused similar applications. The following
is the decision issued by Judge
Re John Peter et nl.—These arc
applications ior naturalization made
by German ami Austrian subjects,
the Oath ol Allegiance iu some cases
was taken prior to and in other subsequently to the declaration ol war,
but In nil cases, applications to the
I ourt were made subsequently thereto. |A| J
1 have refused the applications on
the following grounds:
1. No alien enemy has a right to
apply to the civil courts during war.
His civil rights are suspended. Hals-
bury, Vol. 1, p. 311, sec. 683. Cyc.
Under the Naturalization Act, the
application is made in open court
and not when the cath of allegiance is signed and sworn and the
certificate ot thc notary public granted. If my conclusions are correct
therefore, these applicants have no
right whatsoever to come to a civil
court and demand any rights or privileges, nor am I able, however willing I might be, to hear any application on their behalf.
2. While there are no decisions
that I have been able to discover
'rearing on the point, we have the decision oi the court of appeal in Res
v. Lynch, 1903, 1 K.B. 414. In this
case Col. Lynch, a British subject,
alter the declaration of war between
Great Britain and the government of
the Republic ol South Africa, made
application for naturalization as a
citizen of the republic, which was
granted. On his trial for treason and
c n appeal from the judgment of the
trial court, the court were unanimous in holding that it was impossible for him to dlivest himself of his
nationality by taking the Oath of
allegiance to a government with
which Great Britain was at war. The
court he'd that the naturalization
was in itself invalid and on act of
treason. If, therefore, a naturalization by a government of a foreign
country is invalid, I should think
that thc naturalization of an alien
enemy and the acquisition by him of
all the rights ol a British subject
would be invalid.
3. LooKing at the question entirely dist'inct from nny question of
law, I would refuse thc application
iu the exercise of my own discretion.
1 have grave doubts whether a man
who was willing and anxious to di-
\est himself of his own nationality
and assume that ol an alien enemy,
would make a good citizen. I alBo
gravely doubt whether it would be
lair to the community to give an
alien enemy the same rights bb are
given a British subject, Ior example,
the right to vote, aud other rights
of a similar nature. Ainother more
serious objection is that at the present time, when un alien enemy is
desirous ol leaving Canada Ior the
purpose of engaging in the war, he
can be stopped and Imprisoned, and
the mere act of his endeavoring to
leave the country is in itself sufficient^'
reason to justify thc authorities in
nil.-ting him; but if he incomes a
British subject, the authorities have
ro right or licence, (in the absence
ot his expressing an intention to
commit treason), to prevent his leaving the country.
It Ims been urged tbat some of
these applicant! .ire men who have
lived in Canada for some years and
are good citizens. I cannot, however,
separate the sheep from the goats,
ft has also been urged that liy allowing alien enemies to take the oath ol
allegiance, we thereby have a strong-
ei hold upon them than we formerly
had, inasmuch as if they did fight
against Great Britain, they would
be guilty ol treason. I have said,
however, that we have the strongest
bold possible on an alien enemy
whom the authorities believe is going
to fight against Greut Britain, namely—by arresting him on his endeavor
to leove the country; but we would
have a very poor hold on a man,
1 who had become a naturalized British subject, and then went 'into the
\ ranks ol the enemy, unless he chose
I to come iinrk aguin at the conclusion
of the war.
On these grounds, therefore, I have
dismissed these applications.
