Zbe nfcail-lbevalo
The energy of Hon. Martin Burrell,
Dominion  minister of agriculture,   In
arranging for a Dominion-wide   campaign among  the farmers for the en- j
largement of farm production should
hear good fruit.     As a result   of the ]
eflorts of the Ontario department    of
agriculture in  urging     more     wheat j
production,  an    increase of nearly   a
million acreB wus made in the area of
the  west  the area  prepared  for  sow-
fall wheat sown in that province.   In
ing wheat in the spring is nhout two
million acres more.    But even   these
notable increases     may    lie Improved
upon hy an organized propaganda under the auspices     of     the  Dominion
department  of  agriculture.  Thc    success which Sir Oeorge Foster had   in
his apple-consumption  campaign      on
hehalf of the fruit-growers can be repeated hy parallel ellort toward     increasing farm production.
Rather contrary to tbe general impression, the Dominion figures as to
the area under wheat in 1914 show
unfavorably as compared with 1913.
Not only was production smaller on
account of thc drought in the West,
but the area itself was smaller. The
Westminster Oazette not long ago
remarked that Canada could tight for
the empire ns well by raising food
as it could by sending soldiers. Fortunately, we can do hoth. The Do-
j minion campaign in contemplation
should concentrate even more strongly popular attention upon the food
production matter. Ontario sows
I mostly fall wheat, while the West
sows mostly spring wheat. In tbe
ctber provinces grain and other farm
production may be stimulated with
effect. Out of about -lOO.nno.oo" acres
of good arable land, we have about
:16,0011,HOO in actual cultivation. The
farm population of Canada is, perhaps, ■f.OOO.noo. That 'is IJ acres per
head, or nhout 60 acres per family.
The year 1915 will be a test of the
productive capacity of Canadian agriculture.

Acquitted on Charge of Endeavoring to Induce Men to
Leave Service
The flrst esse heard on Thursday
afternoon Hn thc handsome new courthouse at Vernon provided a striking
demonstration of the fairplay which
is meted out in a British court of
justice to even an alien enemy.
Fritz Zetzsche, whose military pass
showed that he held thc rank, of gunner's mate in the German navy, but
who has been ranching in the Okanagan for some time, was charged under the Crim'inul Code with endeavoring to persuade four non-commissioned officers in thJ B.C. Horse to leave
His Majesty's service. TheBe men, were
called, and gave evidence to thc effect
that, on the invitation of Zetzsche,
they attended a dance at Oynma,
lomf eighteen miles from Vernon, on
the evening of November 7. A,fter the
dance they went to iZetzsche's house,
where, as one of the party was, una We
to ride hack to barracks that night,
they spent the night. These men   all
said Zetzsche treated them very hes-
pitably, but. there was no reference to
military matters or the B. C. Horse
In their conversation. On their return tbe following day, the men were
put in the guardroom for being absent without leave, and subsequently
two of them were degraded.
Soon after the men were missed
Irom the barracks, Major Clark and
chief of Police Fraser proceeded to
Ketzsche's house, which they searched.
In an out-house they found a Mauser
rifle and some ammunition, nnd in
the prisoner's desk they discovered
his military pass and also a lengthy
letter written in German to "Dear
Max," An extract from this letter
read aB follows:
"According, to what I learn from the
newspapers, the probability is that
this war will last a considerable time,
and I, therefore, have to consider
what I can do after the termination
of my contract, on the JTth February
1315. It is, naturally, out of the question , thnt T should obtain n position
here, for Germans who for years have;
heen in pood positions have lieen suddenly dismissed. T have, indeed, euc-
ceeded in only having to report once
a month, for I nad no wish to ride
the forty-nine kilometres (30 miles) in
the present doe's weather over a road
which doesn't deserve the name of a

Fernie Miner Killed
By Fell nf Coal
Ray Vanmecklin, a miner, met his
death at Fernie while at work on
Monday afternoon in the mines, being caught under a "cave" of coal
and suffocated. Deceased's regular occupation was digging but he was taken from that work to replace William Corrigan, a driver who had been
injured earlier in the shift by a runar
way car. The second accident occurred very shortly after the change.
Workers immediately extricated
Vanmecklin and the pulmotor was applied but three hours' application failed to relieve him. The horse driven
by deceased when recovered was uninjured. Two weekB ago two men were
similarly killed within 100 yards from
where this accidant occurred.
Fifteen of the volunteers from Fernie for the second contingent failed
to pass the medical examination at
