Member for Kootenay Hopes to
Still Further Benefit Mining
It. V, Croon, M. P., member tor
Kootenay, arrived In the city yes-
tonlay afternoon trom the■ south and
left for the coast on the evening
Mr. Green, who bad attended a
meeting of Shriners at Cranbrook,
visited also Forme and Nelson before returning to Revelstoke. Before
thc opening of the session at Ottawa
he intends to pay another visit to
Revelstoke and he will also visit
Rossland. Trail, the Slocan and ths
Columbia valley.
The construction of a new wharf at
Hall's Landing has already begun,
aaid Mr. Green, who announced that
work on the Nakusp wharf would
start Immediately and also that he
•eip.ect.ed the construction of tho
wharf at Arrowhead to be begun
■without delay. He believed, that the
work to be done at Hall's Landing
nnd on the Arrow lakes would be a
convenience that would be much ap-
I>r.eecinted by the settlers. Mr. Green
I>as also strongly impressed upon the
government tho need for mattress
work to render the hank of the Columbia river in Revelstoke secure.
The work will commence na soon as
the stnte of the water and other
conditions are favorable.
In Nelson and the south Kootenay
country generally, business conditions
ore fairly satisfactory, Mr. Green
■Ktatos. Rossland and Trail, he was
told, are particularly nourishing. The
arrangement made by the Domiuion
efcovernment to permit operators ol
silver-lead mines to ohtain funds
from tho banks on the security of
the silver produced has been of assistance to the mines, but Mr. Green
is not yet satisfied With the arrangement. He is taking the matter up
with the government and is endeavoring to secure greater benetlt for
the mines which ho hopes will have
the effect of further stimulating the
mining industry.

Judge Forin Changes Policy
Will Not Grant Papers Until
War is Concluded
R. Gordon, government agent, has
i*ceived notification from Judge
Forin, that in consequence of a communication that ho has received from
the military authorities, he hus decided to grant no more certificates of
naturalization to Austrian or German subjects during the continuunce
of the war.
Up to the present Judge Forin has
granted applications in Revelstoke
for naturalisation by Germans and
Austrians while similar requests huve
been refused by Judge Thompson of
Kant Kootenay. At Rossland last
week a number of German and Hungarian subjects applied for naturalisation, Judge Forin refused the applications, saying that he would not
■grant naturalization to subjects of
hostile countries until ufter the conclusion ot the war.
Formation of Revelstoke Branch
of Patriotic Fund will be
The formation of a bruuch of the
Patriotic fund in Revelstoke has been
undertaken by R. Gordon, government agent, who intends calling a
meeting next week of all those interested iu the movement Ior the purpose of appointing a committee to
proceed  with the organization.
The Patriotic fund has branches
throughout the Dominion and is administering funds for the relief of dependants of soldiers who have left
Canada for the front. Mr. Gordon believes that there are many in Revelstoke who would be glad to subscribe
to the lund il given an opportunity
to do so through a local branch. The
civil servants at the court house
wish to make a monthly contribution
Irom thrtr salaries and Mr. Gordon
believes thnt a similar course would
be adopted by the employes ol many
business houses if a branch of the
fund were established in Revelstoke.
"Hon. Thomas Taylor was much interested in the matter, which he discussed with mc when in Revelstoke on
Monday" said Mr. Gordon, "and he
has promised to make bis contribution to the Revelstoke branch instead of to the branch in Victoria, if
a branch of the fund is established in
Revelstoke in the near future.

Member for Revelstoke Inspects
Roads Built in District
Thib, Year
lb.n. Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works, and member lor
Revelstoke, arrived in the city on
Saturday evening fr..n, the south und
left on Monday evening on his return to Victoria.
At I'ranhroo. Mr. Taylor attended
a ceremonial gathering of Shriners,
but was obliged to make a more burned trip than would otherwise huve
beeu the cuse owing to the fuct that
Hon. W.R. Ross was leaving for Fernie and Mr. Taylor was obliged to
be  In   the capital.
Accompanied by E. Tremble, Mr.
Taylor drove over many a( the rouda
that had been constructed this yeur
und on his return expressed his appreciation of the work that i.ad bci-a
done. Remarkably good results f r
the expenditure had been obtaiOOl, >,e
suid, and he was pleased to note ihe
many drives now obtainable in the
neighborhood of the city. The government was auxious, he declare 1, to
keep abreast ot tue nee is of the
district and as an instance of its
policy he remarked that south of tho
city where land has recently beeu
thrt wn open for settlement a road
las been built giving communication
lo every settler.
Mr. Taylor expressed Lis realization
of the importance of extending tha
main road westward, but the difficulty in thut case was that the road
passed through three constituencies,
Revelstoke, Kamloops and Okanagan
and it was, ol course, impossible to
spend the Revelstoke appropriation
beyond the district.
He wis much struck with the improvement in the city creuted by the
new bitulithic pavement. Its great
advuntage was, he suid, that ones
laid the road was practically permanent ind would remain in good
condition without additional expense.
In Nelson, Mr. Taylor heard that
conditions wer> good notwithstanding a temporary quietress in the
mining industry. The smelters aro
resuming operations and. thanks to
the action of the Dominion government, obtained largely through tha
influence of H. F. Green, M.P., tbe
; rospects for the silver-lead mines
were brighter, as funds cun now be
raised on the output of silver, whatever the condition of tbe market.
There arc definite indications of a)
substantial improvement tn business
at the coast, he said. When the war
started there was a general feeling
of nervousness and the conditions at
the front enfrrossed attention. Now:
business men are giving their attention to business and every effort
is being made to take advantage of
the opportunities that the war baa
created. The provincial government la
studying tho situation closely and ia
doing its utmost to br'ing before the
people the openings for enterprise
that are available in British Columbia.

We are told that the present situation is a representation upon a colossal seal" of life In m'iniug camps
before the reign Of law set in. Every
man went armed, and sooner or later
. ■ • .1 .dy was -oltain to shoot Bome-
t.dy else. It wus discovered that the
."((son for the shooting lay in the
sreneral preparedness, for it, and finally the community deeded thut it
would be better to appoint n few policemen,   and  disarm   everybody    cl?e.
The man who insisted upon remaining armed was treated as a common
enemy, and bunted down. Those who
■make this comparison insist that after the present war is over there
will be an end of monstrous armaments, and that there will bc a sort
<.•! international police force to discipline any unruly members of the
family of nations.
There seems to be absolutely no
reason to believe that we ure so near
the millennium as this plan prc-sup-
j oses. Thc very argument of tbe
pacifists is founded on force. it ts
admitted thut somewhere there must
lee armed men and battleships. It
■was not by unarmed boards of trade
Ol sewing circles that order was es
tablisbed in mining camps; and we
do not entrust our police work tori i\ to women. Greut Britain, so
, ng is si;,, regards herself as the
trustee of India, cun hardly do With-
it i smaller standing army than
e-be has already. While Japan and the
l'nited States nave different standards ol clvilliat'.on, neither of tbem
is likely to reduce its expenditure
upon arm-iment, for their statesmen
vill ilways have in mind the possibility   e.f  c( nflict  on  the   Puritic.

That the advance in the price of
sugar which has taken place since tho
outbreak of hostilities in Europe is
likely to be maintained; if, indeed, it
joes not materially advance is the
opinion Of James Irving, of Sun
Francisco, who is interested in the
manufacture and of this staple.
"The increase in the price of sugar
which lias been Influenced by several
causes is largely attributable to the
war in Kurope," said Mr. Irving last
nlgbt. The continental countries of
Kurope produce about half the sugar
consumed In the United States, und
their output will, of course, bc considerably curtailed this year. Many
Of the sugar fields, such as those of
Russian Poland and Belgium ure nt
the present moment the scene of
tome of the blodlest buttles of history, while the districts of Germany
will be hampered owing to the fact
that the crop is harvested by Russians, who are just now engaged on
avocations which are far from peaceful.
Mr, Irv'ing said that be did not
anticipate any immediate further advance ns there had been such prolific
buying during the last two months
that something of a slump had affected the mnrket, but he believed that
buying would continue in about 60
days, and unless the war wore a different complexion at that time he
believed taere would be a still further increase.
"England, which gets large quantities of beet sugar from Germany, has
been forced to turn to Cuba and other markets for her supplies," said
Mr. Irving, "and if she continues
buying largely the price must advance again.
As a proof of thc world-wide influence of the struggle in Europe, Mr.
Irving referred to the fact that the
fertilizers that are used largely in
cultivating the beets nre drawn largely Irom Chili, and ns England had
command of the seas this commodity
which had been declared contraband
of war, could not be shipped to countries which were at war.
•AOtymaiir^ur.ul.nwCKia m^\,HDt.woOD^.H^t.
as it is anticipated there will he a
tremendous rush when peace is signed. As u result, of the advertisement
which Canada has secured from the
various gifts to the Motherland and
thc Canadian contingent, Mr. Cory
says, there is a tremendous rush for
literature, atlases and information
about Canada.
It is expected that a great many
Belgian refugees will come to Cun-
adn. Arrangements are alrcndy being
made to bring some to Ontario and
Western Canada.

Club Spends Bright
(Continued from Page One)
To our great kinsmen of the West,
my friends,
And the great name of England
round and round.
Mrs. Sihbuld, ex-president of the
club responded, reviewing the work
of the club, the increase of membership and the practical work now in
hand of providing a donation of
socks for the soldiers. Following this
came the speech of the evening by
Dr.  Sutherland.
Dr. Sutherland said that he spend
six weeks on the continent. He described the marvels ol Paris which he
described as a city ol pleasure. The
wonderful treasurers of the Louvre
much impressed him, one of the
most precious objects teing the diamond hilted sword of Bonaparte. The
famous Mona Lisa Beemed small and,
to one who is not an art connisseur,
unuttractive. Versailles was visited.
In one ol the rooms of the palace the
king ol Prussia was proclaimed German emperor, but at the time of the
occupation by the Germans the art
treasures were carefully protected.
Here was seen the famous Trianon,
the plaything of Marie Antoinette,
and the room from which the unfortunate queen was dragged to her
After Paris cume Berne, Dr. Sutherland found Switzerland most attractive although the natural beauty
of the Swiss Alps cannot compare
with the Selkirks. He continued:
"In Berne we attended a Clinic
given by Prof. Kocher, and his son.
Thc interesting feature of this Clinic
was his lecture on Goitre. He was
the lirst to introduce surgery in the
treatment of Goitre and with marked
success. He also introduced a method
of operation for Hernia. Both of
these operations are known as
' Kochers method" and are used by
surgeons the world over.
"In the afternoon our whole party
was entertained by him at his home
und while >ve were enjoying some
very delicious refreshments on the
lawn we noticed two aeroplanes Hying close above our beads.—An interesting sight for most of us.
"From Berne some of our party
went up to Friehurg to study Prof.
Kronigs "Twilight Sleep" Scopala-
mine nnd Narcophine.
"The rest ol the pnrty, myself included, went to Zurich where we attended Prof. Sauerbruchs Clinic. He
showed us a new method of treatment for tuberculosis, involving only
one lung.After the Clinic Prof. Sauerbruchs gave us a delightful boat ride
on Luke Zurich which occupied the
afternoon ami evening. He invited a
number of his musical friends who after dinner entertained us with Swiss
songs and music " •
The party went next to Lake
Lucerne and thence to Munich the
capital of Bavaria, Vienna, Austria's
beautiful capital was next visited.
"During the evening we attended
the funeral of the murdered crown
prince and princess, and among the
mourners seated 'in a closed carriage
we got a glimpse of the Kaiser. The
funeral took place ahout ten o'clock
at night, and strictest precautions
were taken to prevent further outrages. The streets were lined with
The splendid picture gallery ln
Dresden was visited, the gem of the
collection being Raphael's "Sistine
Dr Sutherland then gave an interesting description of Berlin.
"The historic portal Brnndenberg
Gnte, Is nn arch seventy feet high,
two hundred feet wide with Pve passage ways, the centre one being reserved for the carriages of    royalty.
On the summit ol this arch there is
a bronze group, called The Car of
Victory; which was taken to Paris
by Napoleon in 18<»G and later
brought back again by the Prussians.
We hope to hear of it's being taken
again to Paris by the French at an
early date, if tbe Russians do not
get to Berlin first.
•'This gate forms the commencement of Berlin's celebrated ""Unter
den Linden" a very fine Btreet, a
mile in length bordered on each side
by lime trees, from which it derives
it's name. From the number of Palaces, monuments and statues, which
adorn tbis thoroughfare, the boast
of the Prussians is probably true
'That no city in the world presents
so many notable structures on a
single street as does 'Berlin.' In t.he
general character of it's ornamentation, Berlin is the most warlike of
cities. No other capital ol Europe
hus so many statues on it's streets,
and nlmoBt everyone portrays some
military hero or some warlike deed.
Thus we see the figures of Frederick
the Great, Blucher. Yorkc, Beulow
und so forth. Such statues mase
Unter den Linden a kin.1 of triumphal
Way. The military aspect is not con-
f.ned to statues alone, Martial,
music 'is in the air, and groups of
Officers with clanking sabres arc met
everywhere, and even ladies keep clear
of them for it is considered derogatory to their dignity to swerve a
hairs breadth from tbeir chosen
course, for anyone who does not
wear a uniform Frequently in re-
stuurnntB aud theatres more soldiers
can be counted than civilians."
Potsdam wus next visited, then
came Leipzig, Jena and Frankfort.
•The visit to Prof. Erlichs laboratory where the famous 606 was invented was most interesting. At present there chief research iB in connection with cancer. Tbey have found
thut it is possible to transfer the
growth from one animal to another.
They have also proved thut Goitre
which is very prevalent in Switzerland is caused by something in the
mountain water which the people
drink. By heating this water to a
certain temperature this 'something'
ie destroyed. We also visited the
birth place and home of Goethe, the
great German poet, dramatist and
The famous university of Heidelberg
was inspected, the party going on to
Weisbaden. A never-to-be-Iorgotten
journey down the Rhine took the
party to Cologne. From there the
ioute lay to Brussels and Liege.
"One curious and 'interesting thing,
which we learned about Belgium"
said Dr. Sutherland, "is that it's
people are composed of two distinctly different races. In the northern
part are the Flemish who are fair
haired, blue eyed ol Teutonic origin
andjvery much like the Dutch. In the
southern part are thc Walloons, descended from the Gauls, who ae a
rule are darK complexioncd, vivacious and very much like the French. In
spite of this difference the Belgians
are a very happy, contented people.
It is a most progressive country.
Though it cannot boast of great territory, what it. does possess iB prosperous and  beautiful."
"The historic  battlefield  of Waterloo was inspected after   which     Dr.
Sutherland went to Holland.     From
Holland he went to England on    his
eturn to Canada.
. A heurty vcte of thanks moved by
Dr. McLean and seconded by Mrs.
Stephenson was extended to Dr. Sutherland for his interesting and instructive address.
Miss McKay contributed to the
evening's entertainment by singing
the popular song "Its a long way to
Tipperary" everyone joining in the
chorus, Mrs Stephenson ably presiding at the piano. Auld Lang Sync,
heartily sung brought the proceedings
to a close.

an attempt last night to blow up the
Grand Trunk Pacific bridge over the

They did not succeed in their attempt
