'"ate of J. WI. Ryan
Last Seen on Sunday Walking on Railway Track East
of Station-Has not Returned to City—Suicidal
Tendencies—Worked During Summer as Cook on
Ranch ___	
Fears are expressed as to the fate
of J.M. Ryan of Revelstoke who disappeared from the city on Sunday
last. As he formerly bad suicidal
tendencies his Iriends are anxious as
to b'is late and are with the aid ol
the police endeavoring to discover
what has befallen him.
Ryan, who is an old timer in tho
district and formerly   lived at   Gol
den, worked this summer for P.
Levesque as cook at hia ranch. Recently he waB paid off for his Bummer's work and came to the city
where he was celebrating his return.
Last Bunday he was seen by Edward Taylor walking on the railway
track east of the station. So far as
is known he did not return to thc
city nor has any information as to
bis whereabouts been discovered.
Increase in Wages to be Paid
at Power Plant Improvements
Wages paid to laborers engaged at
the city power plant will be at the
rate of ?3 per day of nine hours.
This was decided upon unanimously
by the city council last night.
The question of the wages to be
paid was introduced by Aid. Smythe
who enquired if the wages of those
employed at the powerhouBe dam had
been reduced.
The city clerk explained that no reductions had been made. Laborers bad
been engaged at the rate of 30c. v per
ltour and rough carpenters at 36 cents
per hour. At this rate there had been
5ii men applying for the jobs for six
Aid Smythe thought that the la-
torers should get i:>. per day. He
believed that the council should
start cutting the salaries of officials
before those of laborers.
Aid. Bell suggested that it might
be the duty of the council to take
advantage of present conditions,
wages of other employes in the city
had been reduced.
Aid. Smythe thought that work
should be given to as many men as
possible. Some should be given ' a
job for two weeks and then their
jobs should be given to others. 'All
should get a chance.
The mayor asked Aid. Smythe if
after he had a man broken in for
work at his moving picture theatre
he fired him and, engaged another
Aid. Smythe said thnt he did not
advocate changing experienced men
but only men working on boulevards
and similar work.
A motion that the laborers be phid
at the rate of 83 a day was carried
Sergt. S. Hodgson of Salmon Arm

Opera   House  Crowded with
Delighted Audience—Splendid Programme
The patriotic concert given at the
opera house last night under tbe
auspices of the Revelstoke relief
society waa one of the most successful und most liberally patronized
events ever held in the city. The
opera house was crowded, and two
loads of extra chairs had to be
brought to accommodate the audience.
Those present were well rewarded
for their attendance nnd heard one of
the brightest and best urranged amateur entertainments ever given in Revelstoke, and Mrs. H. H. McVity who
managed tbe entertainment, assisted
by, A. Thomson, and who trained the
pretty children's choruses is receiving
today hearty congratulations.
The program was well conceived,
tbe music and dancing were vivacious and effective and the scenes picturesque and pletsing. Nearly every
item on the program was voditerous-
ly encored.
Little. Oliffe Cashato made one of
the hits of the evening and was
brought back time and again. The
shepardesses' song and dance waB one
of 1 the best and prettiest features of
the entertainment and the childrens'
duet nnd chorus "For I want to be a
soldier" was heartily appreciated,
Edmond Kincaid and Clarence Lyons,
the principals, singing and acting
with the ability of seasoned performers.
Mrs. L. W. Wood's solo In the
navy scene brought down the bouse
and with the chorus provided one of
the most attractive and spirited
numbers. Ralph Lawrence excelled in
his solo "Lift Aloft the Flag of England" and the scene ;with all the
performers on the stage made an extremely effective finale. The vocal
solos of Miss Parker, Mrs. W. Bews,
F. Paulding, Miss Jordon, and Mr.
Haddon were all excellent and won
hearty receptions from the delighted
British glees were a notable number and the banjo duet by F. Le
Faux and H. Mortimer gave a touch
of comedy to the program.
Over •"!'J5'l was realized as a result
of the concert.

Yours truly,
Drastic economies in the police
force were put into force by the police commissioners at a meeting held
yesterday afternoon. The services of
two members of the force, constables
Donald Ross and John Beazlcy, were
dispensed with in ordes to retrench
financially. Those present at the
meeting were H. McKinnon, mayor,
and  Commissioners Tremble and  Bell.
An application from the chiel of
pol'ice for winter uniforms for the
force was read.
Mr. Tremble thought tbat in view
of financial conditions the police
might do without pew uniforms.
Mr. Bell said that in view of the
resolution of the city council asking
the police commissioners to economize he favored dismissing two men.
Th'is would also save'two uniforms.
The mayor said that dismissing
two men might necessitate T. Bain,
jailor, working 21 hours. He did not
think that this would be justifiable.
Mr. Tremble was in favor of dispensing with tbe services of two men
and of doing without new uniforms
if possible and seconded by Mr. Bell
moved that In view of the financial
stringency  and of the  action   of    the
city council in asking the police commissioners to reduce expenses that
the police force be reduced by dispensing with the services ol the two
junior employes, constables Donald
Ross and John Beuzley, at the end
of the present month. The motion
war carried unanimously.
The chief of pol'ice was asked as to
whether the force could do without
new uniforms this winter. He will
enquire into the condition of the present uniforms.
At an adjourned meeting of the
police commissioners held this morning, H. M. Parry, (chief of police, reported that In view of the financial
stringency he thought that the force
could du without the usual issue of
winter uniforms. He reported also
that the police had nearly completed
the collection of licenses, but that in
some cases summonses -would be necessary to collect the money.
The advisability ol removing the
prisoners from street work and dispensing with the services of the nuard
was discussed, also the possibility of
economizing in the issue of food to

Vanity and Ambition of Kaiser Responsible for Present
War—Better to be Traitor to Selfish Kaiser Than

"Vanity, Napoleonic ambition,
tempted the kaiser to>'start thiB war.
Common senBe will tell you that It
is utterly Impossible for the kaiser
to win. ISvcn supposing the Impossible, what are the Gormun people
going to gain? The same militarism,
the same absolutism, the same .taxation, the same drudgery, a world full
of enemies and not a.single friend.
And what Is more Important, there
would not be any German race left,
ns it will take years of fighting,

the cripples will Biirvlve. The flower

the altar of stubbornness and selfishness."
This is thc opinion expressed by
Frank Wiesner, a German-Canadian
residing in Revelstoke, who, issueB
an appeal to his fellow countrymen
all over the world, in favor of stopping the war at present raging In
Europe. In  this appeal, he says:—
"Germans, friends, brothers: While

nation; while blind ferocious fury
destroys the harvest of centuries, do

The city council last night expressed its willingness to grant to a
Farmers compuny that it is proposed
to form a lease free of charge of part
of the market site which will be purchased by the city provided that the
bylaw for that purpose is approved
by thc ratepayers. The Farmers company intends to erect a warehouse
and sell produce direct to the consumer. It will also purchase a cooperative threshing machine and take
any similar steps for tbe advantage
of the farming community.
W. E. Smith nnd W. H. Pottrufl delegates from the Farmers Institute
appeared before the council, Mr.
Smith said that at present if the
farmers raised produce there was no
market for it. Grain could be grown
in the district equal to that produced anywhere but there were no facilities for producing grain. Arrangements for threshing were necessary.
There must be some solution. They
proposed to form a joint stock company and expected to raise $5,000 in
HU  shares.  Every  farmer doing busi
ness through the company would 1 e .t
shareholder. If they raised $2500 tbe
government would subscribe the re-
mainim: $2,500. They would not hein

would start at once and would handle farmers' produce. The cost ol operation would not be expensive us
they would only require a manager
and a salesman. Tbey would not interfere with merchants' business as
they would onlv handle farmers supplies, selling directly to the public.
The mayor said that the council
could not give a definite answer until a market site was procured. If
the bylaw failed the council could
only give a corner somewhere that
was not in use. II the site were
bi ught he thought there would be
no difficulty in granting tbe request.
Aid Bell thought it wns a good idea.
Aid. McSorley said that it was a
splendid scheme. They could not do
too much for the farmers. The farmers could accomplish much by working collectively, he s-iid..

COL. B0TT     .
FormerEiujIish Officer in Charge
of  British   Columbia's
The appointment ol Col. J. O. L.
Bott. ol Vernon, to the command ol
the British Columbia Mounted regiment which is expected to be mobilized in Victoria Ior traAninf, preparatory to being sent to England tor
active service, has been definitely announced. Those in touch with military affairs in the west i are ol. the
opinion that no more satislactory
selection could have been made. Col.
Bott is generally considered a most
efficient officer and there can be no
Question as to the respect In which
he is held by his men as well as his
popularity among them.
Col. Bott has hnd training and experience which thoroughly quality him
for the responsible post to which he
has been assigned. Prom December,
1S95, until April, 1000, he was attached to the 20th Hussars, and for
two years he was adjutant in the
West Moorland and Cumberland Yeomanry. In that period he saw/ active
service in different parts ol the
world. During the Boer War,' 1901-
'0*J, he served in South Africa am!
holds the Queen's medal with four
clasps. He also was in Egypt, lt was
long after he took up his residence
in the Okanagan that he became identified with the forces there. The first
corps with which he was attached
was the Okanagan Mounted Rifles and
later, in September, l'JH, when the
B. C. Horse was organized he was
given command of the 30th Regiment
a post which he has held ever since.
While no official confirmation of the
proposal to mobilize the B.C. Horse
in Victoria) has been received from the
department of militia, it is confidently expected that instructions will be
received at an early date. The total
strength of the force, including otlicers and men, as well as detailB,
will be about 642. This includes 20
bicycles. The majority ol the cavalrymen needed to make up the number
Kiven, in fact so large a proportion
that little, if any, recruiting will be
required, already are available. As
soon as word is forthcoming lt will
be possible to move no less than 34fi
officers and men. who havc heen
mobilized and jn training near Vernon since August 11 last, to the Willows camp. With the 1J5 recruited in
Victoria, who'have been under arms
almost since the outbreak ot war,
and other detachments trom the
lower interior sectioned of the Mainland, it may be seen that thcre will
be few- additional men wanted to
make up the total called for in put-
I t'.ng a mounted regiment on a war
i footing.
The force now at Vernon is said to
' comprise cavalrymen  who,  ln     every
respect, are  ready to face the   hardships of an arduous continental c&RI-

It is apparent that, in this part ot
Panada at least, there are more anxious to enlist for service ,'in Europe
than the militia department can
handle nt present, says-the Edmonton Journal. The response which has
been made is very gratifying. So far
from its being necessary to take
measures to stimulate recruiting, the
number offering themselves is likely
to prove a temporary source of embarrassment.
Tbat the department is not able to
proceed more rapidly is not surprising. That it hus been able to do as
well as it has is due dimply to tbc

deprived of their homes, their all,
and set adrift to strive merely because it was the convenience of armies to trample them down, is "sorrow's crown of sorrow" in the great
tragedy which is now being enacted

Great Britain was not without responsibility for the war, declares
that "we cannot shout for years

Revelstoke German Appeal
(Continued from Page One.l
moment to consider who carries the
responsibility, the blame, for all this
terrible destruction and devastation?
"Christianity, civilization, even culture, appear to be the only miserable
means of nations to anibilate each
other. A pervertel conception of national duty, an outlived idea of patriotism, race-hatred, are the inspirations for the soldiers to kill each
"Seventee,, million men, the strongest, fittest, healthiest of Europe, are
withdrawn from the work of creation
and set at the business of destruction. And who enrries the blame for
it; who is the real cause of it all?
Was it the iron hand of necessity or
the free and powerful arm of an individual or both?
"I am not a seer, whose mental
eyes can penetrate the evil which
covers up the threads, the unknown
hand that weaves the destiny ot nations. But as I listen to the simple
inspiration of my inner nature, as I
hark to the intense pulsing of the
life of nations, I feel that cruel necessity caused the war; that this war
had to come in order to show humanity the foul foundations upon
which tbe life of present-day society-
is resting. The time was ripe for a
H'uropean conflagration, but it took
the spark of a vain, ambitious ruler
to'start it.
"The kaiser's temper conquered his
letter reason, when he proposed and
accepted the war against four nations. His ambition was stronger
than the consideration for the wel-
lare of his people. Give a selfish individual unlimited power over people
iind he will lead them to destruction.
No one could blame the people for
the; starting of the war. Human nature is too young yet. too pliable,
easily influenced hy a stronger mind.
Human nature has to learn by bitter experience to whom it may safely entrust its well being. Every hour
in the school of national life represents a century.
"What disgusting vision opens before our eyes! Will you wait for its
realization, allay and protest against-
the continuation of- this terrible WW,
if you Intend to save your race from
totul extinction!
"Even lf we admit that there was
i reaBon to start the war, that there
was a necessity for Germany to expand, the reason has fallen. Though
the nations do not officially announce
the change ln their views, they have
changed their conception about lile,
ftbont man, about property, nevertheless. The time has come where we
realize that there ts room for everyone of us ln the world, If not In
Germany then elsewhere, lf we only-
show our sincere intention to be useful members of Bocicty. A good man
will be welcomed anywhere. Under the
I'resont condition, the excuse, the necessity for expansion may be justified
in the minds of all rulers; but to
the minds of the people it appears to
h« a fallacy, as It ie plninly proven
by the fact that the sentiments ol
practically the■ whole civilized world
outside of Ocrmnm nre turned
iiirnlnst the Germane.
"There Ib not the slightest' potsi-
hlllt.y of sntlitfyln? the demand of
the kaiser for more land For two
reeasone—if the kaiser wine he will
have tin German nntion; and if he
fill"  hi"  ehanre  will  he  Ftill  smnller.
I For these two main reasons I earnest
I ly appeal to your commonsense,
German brothers, to your nobleBt
feelings, to protest against .this war;
to form an alKance against the selfish intentions of the kaiser. As he
does not consider the welfare of his
own nation, he shows plainly his incapability to carry the responsibility
the sceptre over a nation. Cast off
the- shackles of the Hobenzoilerns,
grasp the opportunity to institute
political freedom: do not be at the
mercy of other national
"Turn your courage, your enthusiasm, for the benefit of the nation, to
the political regeneration of Germany, and not, enslaved as you are,
to the destruction of it, because the
selfish desire and insane ambition of
I a sinirle man demands it.
"What Germany needs is a spiritual conquest over   outlived  ambitions
mid ancient political conceptions, and
i.ot a material, military  conquest by
i Krupp guns    and     German strategy.
Without any war Germany could have
captured the world with     her     commerce. There are     a     hundred other
ways of settling matters of this kind.
l)o not listen to the     smooth langu-
I age of the churches, wh'ch only pray
j for the material   victory of the     respective rulers, but listen to the noblest instincts of your nature.
"While the greatest members of our
race dreamt the idealistic dreams of
a better, happier future, a healthier
and stronger race and a free nation,
o few egotostic, amhitons materialists shaped "by the grace of God"
the future destiny of Germuny to
further their own selfish ends. They
drained the people tlirouch high taxation of their hard earned money to
satisfy Napoleonic ambitions; to fill,
or rather to disgrace, a few pageB of
history with their evil deeds.
"Destruction, slaughter, death, misery of the people are nothing to the
kaiser. Every strategic plan is of divine inspiration, every bullet carrieB
the blessing of civilization into the
camp of the enemy. Human nature is
not the purpose, but only a means
to his own selfish end.
"Germans, do you realize what it
mentis, that the kaiser never, never
will give in as long as thcre is one
man fiehtins; for him? Do you realize
what it means to the German race?
Annihilation. For thc sake ol your
own, arise and cast off the shameful
shackles of impertnlism. Prove your
courage against the yoke of militarism and do not yield weakly to the
enslaving chains of u single degenerate!
"Consider the white race, as the
time will come when every one of us
will be needed, be he German. British
or otherwise. Are selfishness and
gratification of an outlived national
desire the only instincts of the German race, dominating all the other
sound, nob.e impulses? It is a perverted sense of duty, if you try to
save the national honor by killing
not only all of yeur own,.but also
t'ie best of other nations. Where is
the expression of all the ethical
teachings of our greatest philosop- >
hers, where th» practice and realization of Goe'the's and Schiller's, divine
idealism*' Awake, arise; revolt, oh
pride of the German race, and sweep
the selfish creed of the Hohenzollcrns
off the earth.
"I prefer, a million times, to be a
traitor to a selfish kaiser than to be
a traitor to my own people. Such a
treason is your duty, which you owe
not only to your own race hut to humanity in ceneral. Tbe hour has
come in which political freedom is
within our grasp.     Take it.
"Do not decieve yourself that you
are carrying the blessings of German
culture and idealism into the other
lands, because you are not. It's destruction, devastation, death. miRery
and hatred The kaiser and his junkers are only Influencing, deceiving,
poisoning the mind ol the people, il
they Bay that the ultimate result ol
nil war will be a blessing.
"The kaiser was rcsnonBible for the
start of the war; but you alone, German brothers, will be responsible Ior
the continuation of this war, lor thc
spreading of the conflagration. Prove
your willingness to discontinue thc
war hy doing your own house-cleaning lirst, and you will.be giving the
best, the noblest, that human nature
ran give.
"Hundreds ol thousands of Britishers are flocking into the field ol their
own free will to protect one ot the
greatest treasures of a nation—political freedom. And your own people
are driven like sheep, into the fighting line to gain—a Napoleonic victory Ior an insane emperor.
"Remember thc nineteenth century,
when the greatest of our race created
the deepest, sweetest musical compositions, enriched all fields of natural !tcience, when our poets and
philosopher filled our hearts w'ith
enthusiasm lor all the goodi beautiful, ideal in human nature and life;
nnd listen in the twentieth centurv
to the same divine Inspiration ol
human nature, and the world will
bless you for ever and ever.
"Your sincere brother,

London is becoming gradually
aware of the fact that overhead there
is a sky, at night as well as by day.
No longer are the bright streets
arched merely by darkness; we have
grown conscious of the immensity
overshadowing, and are developing a
nervous habit of looking up Into it.
To attribute this habit to the fear
of Zeppelins would be the grossest
exaggeration. The chiel thing is tbat
we have discovered the sky. If the
sky contains a menace, that is only
adjunctive to the primary discovery.
Several agencies combine to make
us alert to the potentiality of this
vast root of London—the drawn
blinds, the masked lamps, the searchlights—London, at night has acquired
an unwonted gravity,' quiet and darkness. It Is impossible to move about
town after dusk without feeling that
terrible things are happening somewhere, that a miracle—one of these
miracles of our own period—may at
any moment brinj; us, too, into the
zone of terror; a sudden and violent
shattering of London's ancient immunity. It is our nearest approach
to a visualization of tbe horrors
tbat are being enucted upon the other
side of that strip ol water which
| washes our southeast coast. We fere
brought almost to affinity with
London Is Weird.
Undoubtedly London is abnormal,
weird, after sundown. And yet a
visitor from an English village, from
a substantial county town even,
would find it difficult to understand
how it is thut when the lights have
been lit we call London dark. A
Londoner of the eighties might be
equally puzzled. For the city yet re-
ta'mr sufficient brilliancy to have astonished the past generations of oil
lamp and gas jet. days. There are
still the dazzling shop tronts, and
electric window signs, the glowing
motor busses and trams; the street
lamps are not less powerful because
they are fewer, and their masks
serve but to throw a stronaer, a
more concentrated light upon the
But our memories are short. We
compare impressions today with
those of yesterday, not with those of
ten, twenty years ago, We miss the
darning sentences spelt out, obliterated, and spelt out again; the vivid
advertisements in fierce colors; the
lavish display of the cinemas. the
flashing lamps of the motor cars, the
wonderful illumination at Charing
Cross and in Parliament Square. It
is a strange, uncomfortable experience to see the war office and the
admiralty with all their blinds down,
the L.C.C. trams with their blinds
down, tbe great bulks of the Cecil
und Savoy darkly looming, to miss
the familiar face of 'Big Ben."
Ajnd a stranger, visiting London
for the first time, in ignorance of
events, could not fail to sense the
difference. He, too, would quickly
find the sky'and cast curious glances
up into it. For one thing, his eyes
would be guided thither by the
scrchlights. Thc pleasure part of
town is di urinal i'i! by tw.i searchlights, from Charing Cross and from
Hyde Park corner, and all night long
they stab tbe sky and the darkness
of the sky. They move like phantopn
eyes, staring wildly along a track
which our eyes cannot follow; searching a void which we cannot penetrate
Hypnotized, we strain our gaze, too,
and then pass on our way hoping
that while London sleeps this vigilant, tireless watch will light upon no
evil thing;, that the dawn will appear
bright with the promise of good
The Unobstrusive Farewell.
What a fortunate thing for Mr. Atkins that he iB sent to a country of
warm-hearted, doting friends! It may
be that the demonstrative welcome
compensates him a little for the unobstrusive farewell.
Possibly we have not yet recovered
from the shock that awakened ub to
the fact that an entire British army
had crossed to France without our
being properly, collectively aware of
it; and, of course, we are taking
this war very, very seriously; also
the explanation, as seme would have
it, might be simply that we are a
lugubrious people—forgetting the fervor with which we cheered our soldiers when they tramped through
town enroute for Table Bay.
Whatever the reason, the fact remains that Mr. Atkins haB to wait
until he gets to France, for the cheers
and the flowers and the kisses which
he deserveB. As for his march across
London to the railway station, some
times it, is well nigh funereal. A battalion of the was marching into Waterloo station, and a crowd ol
anxious and serious-minded English
folk was watching it; proud of these
stalwart khaki men, but—silent; uplifted, no doubt, and moved, but-
moved to silence. The last ranks were
marching in, and scarcely a cheer
had been heard.
Then came a private astride one
horse and leading another. He had
some slight difficulty with the other
horse. The difficulty conquered, he
looked about him, a tiifle exasperated. His eyes rested upon a policeman |
a stolid London policeman, keeping
the route. He addressed the policeman, w'ith mock pleading—
"Oh, policeman," he said, "do

Hew Sawmill
for Kootenay
Rlko, Nov. 20.—Tobacco Plains is
to have one of the largest sawmill
plants in Kootenay, costing 9150,000
and thoroughly modern throughout.
About six weeks ago the Eureka
Lumber company's mill was burnt
down and construction bas already
started. Between 250 and 300 men '
will be employed. Tbe new mill will
be ol double size, with two band
saws and a gang saw, with a total
capacity of 300,000 ft for 20 hours.
Thc Great Northern engineer was
here and bu: veyed for a spur from
the industry track to thc timber
docks of the new mill. Tbis will be
constructed right away and will
facilitate the construction of the
mill. The new plant will have an entire new yard system whereby the
lumber will be conveyed from the
mill by motor trucks, automatically
loaded; electric stackers will be used
in piling lumber thereby doubling the
piling capucity of the yards.

Britain for the present is     unwilling [

tation of wool from Australia. Wool
deulers, however, are hoping through
the state department to continue negotiations, so as to enable them   to ,
participate in the auction sales soca j
to be held in Australia. The   British
government is understood to have re- j
plied to Ambassador   Page   that for
the present tho mother country would
use all the wool raised in Australia,
though when it became apparent that
there would be a surplus   some     arrangement might be     made wh'ereDy
American firms could obtain part   of
the product. Tbe only   condition under which they could    get any wool,
however, would be     with guarantees
thati the product be   used    only    in
manufacturing  goods contracted    for
by Great Britain.

The following ten commandments
are offered by one philosopher, for
the guidance of catalogue house patrons:
1. You shall sell your farm produce for cash, whenever you ecan, but
not to us. We do not buy from you.
2. You shall believe our statements and buy all you need from us
because we want to be good to you
although wc are not acquainted with
'■I. You shall send the money in
advance to give us a chance to get
the goods from the factory with your
money. Meanwhile'you will have tc
wait patiently a few weeks as that is
our business method.
I. You shall buy church bells and
church fixtures from us and forward
the money in advance, for this is our
business method 'and you shall collect
from the business men in your town
as much money as you can for the
benefit of your churches as it is
against, our rules to donate for building country churches.
6. You shall buy your tools from
us and be your own mechanic in order
to drive the mechanics from your
vicinity, for we wish it so.
7. You shall induce your neighbors
to buy everything from us as we have |
room for more money—less money
there iB in your community the sooner we can put your local merchants
out of business and charge you what
we please.
8. You shall look often at the
beautiful pictures in our catalogues,
your wishes will increase and so you
will send in a big order although
you are in no immediate need of the
goods otherwise you might have some
money left to     buy some     necessary
goods from your local merchant.
9. You shall have the mercbaats
who repuir your goods you buy from
ub book the bills so you can send the
money for his labor to us for new
goods, otherwise he will not notice
our "influence.
10. You shall in case of sickness or
need apply to your local dealer Ior
aid and credit as we don't know you
nor do we care to.

distant when mixed farming |n the
prairie provinces will have made ieiCh
rtridei that the western, butter market will be fully supplied by Canadian producers. He says: "The development of the butter trade with Australia and New Zealand has attracted
considerable attention and yreat ex-
pertaffioDH have been built upon It,
both In Canada and Australia, but It
fiecms probable that, it has about
reached Its limit, nnd that the Increased production ln ths pralrls

Thc literary and debating society of
the Y.M.C.A. jield its regular weekly
meeting last night in the ussocia-
tion building. The subject for debate
was "Resolved that more crimes
'..ere due to Wealth than Poverty."
The subject was ably handled b„ H.
N. Coursier, J. Lawrenco and A.
Ross for the attinnative, and H.
Mortimer, R. D. Colpitts and J, 'L.
I lay for the negative.. After the deleters had finished, the audience was
asked to vote on the questtion, which
resulted in, thc affirmative winning by
one vote. The chairman, then gave a
Bhort but able address. In his opening remarks, be said, "Tbe Bard of
Won says 'Every why hath a wher-
fore,' and old Burton states. 'No rule
so general which admits not some
exception.' As a practical illustration of tbe why and wherefore of the
rule and exceptions, and to show
bow statements may be quoted pro
and con on the subject of the evening. I beg to present a few culled
from eminent men of letters of all
"As chairman 1 give both sides,
not wishing to appear prejudiced
either way, and as an illustration of
the fact that our subject has been a
matter of debate from a very early
"The Prophet Jeremiah says, 'The
destruction of the poor is their poverty.' Solomon presents a picture ot
wisdom, as holding in her left hand,
riches and honor. Bacon considers,
'Prosperity is the blessing of the
Old Testament, adversity is the blessing of the new.' Boswell's Johnson
states 'All wealth excludes but one
evil—poverty.' und'Old Plutarch aggress that 'riches for the most part
aro hurtful to them that possess
them.' Milton too calls riches. 'The
toil of fools and a wise man's cum-
brance.' Canny Bacon replies, 'Be-
l'ieve not much them that seem to
despise riches, for they despise them
thut despair of them, and none are
worse when they come to them.'
Matthew Henry is at complete variance with this view, He says. Thcre
is a burden of care in getting riches
fear in keeping them, temptation in
using them, sorrow in losing tbem,
and a burden of account ^at least to
be given up concerning them.' 'I take
lim to be the only wise man,' says
Howe, 'that lives upon what, he has,
owes nothing, and is contented, for
there is no determinate sum of
money nor quantity of estate that
can denote a man rich since no man
is truly rich that has not so much as
perfectly satiates his desire of having
more, for his desire of inore is want,
and want is poverty.'
"Withithese quotations,'proving, or
attempting to, that riches, wealth,
which docs not satisfy is want, or
poverty land these are perhaps after
all but matters of degree). I will
close by wishing for myself and for
>ou, with Solomon, "Give me neither
poverty nor riches', Prov. 30-8."
Next Friday nitrht at S o'clock the
society will elebate on the subject.
"Resolved that the kaiser ia 'insane,
not a genius." This should furnish
irood material, and all men who are
interested in theses weekly debates
isked to keep Friday evenings
ipen if posaihle.
