Call far Fifty
Thousand More Troops
The return of Sir Robert Borden
and Sir Sam Hughes, it is believed
at Ottawa, will be signalled for a
call lor 50,000 additional men for overseas service. The Dominion Premier and Minister ol Militia have been
at the front, have seen the conditions
noted tbe deeds and conferred with
the Uritish government, and it is the
opinion 'if these who are in a position to know here that as a rssult
ol these conferences with Lord Kitchener and oiher British leaders Canada will be called upon to furnish
additional reinforcements to the extent of at least 50,000 men. The call
for twelve new battalions, which are
to be sent to England immediately,
indicated the demand for men and
that the Imperial authorities have
made known to tl.e Dominion government a new offensive movement this
fall, which will make heavy demands
for reinforcements.
While it is '.nt thought that any
definite arrangements have been made
as to what part Canada will play
in  this  movement,   it   is believed that
another division will be authorized.
This would give Canada three full
divisions at tbe front, with a reinforcement base in England. The tirst.
division has been in France oyer
since February under the command of
■Gen. Alderson. The second division
is in England, and is expected to
cross the channel any day now. It is
commanded by c,en. Turner. If a
third division Is formed it will give
Canada a full army corps,
Including the ten thousand men on
garrison duty In Canada, the Dominion Mas now under arms approximately 150,000 men. When the twelve
new battalions reach England there
will 'ne i. ughlj H 1,000 men under
arms in Europe, SO-,000 in training in
Canada,  10,000 men In Bermuda, 500
men   at   St.   L'.H-ia   British   West   lii'l-
ies, a medical corp at Cairo, consisting of three stationary hospitals and
10,000 in Canada, garrisoning Halifax, Quebec, Esquimau and guarding
Canadian elevators, patrolling the
western boundary and on duty at Internment camps, With tbe additional 50,0011 reinforcements Canada will
have within a COUple of months a
Splendidly equipped and trained army
of over 200,000,    If there is a call  for

Everything at the camp is ri ady
for the reception of the aliens. Tents
for the military guard were taken up

bunk houses erected for the accommodation of the aliens were used by
the troops until last night.
Capt, Rose of Kelowna arrived In
the city last night and will relieve
Capt. Wain as camp commandant,
Capt.  Wain will remain     until     the

Commencing on Friday, Sept. 10,
the Patriotic Dance club will hold
fortnightly dances In the Masonic assembly rooms, First street, dancing
to commence at 9 o'clock. Tbe Revelstoke city band will be in attendance. Capt. R. H. Sawyer and Robt.
Gordon compose the committee in
charge of arrangements. The dances
will last until midnight only, and a
charge of fifty cents each for ladies
and gentlemen will make it easy to
t" combine patriotism with pleasure.
Through the kindness of the members of the City band and the Masonic hall committee, a goodly pro-
portlon of the receipts will go to the
Canadian Patriotic fund, even should
the attendance on any night not be
large. This effort deserves the full
support of the public, for the Canadian Patriotic fund now needs all
the assistance it can get in its enor
mous task,  and its requirements are
increasing monthly.

Kelowna Responds to
Call of Empire
Capt. Rose of Kelowna who arrived
in the city last night to take command of the alien internment Camp
in thc Revelstoke park in civil life is
the editor of the Kelowna Record.
Kelowna and district . ve responded
freely to the call of duty since the
outbreak of the war, says Capt.
Rose. Over 5C0 residents of the city
and district, or over 10 per cent, of
the population, have joined the colors in some branch of the service.
One consequence is that business conditions in Kelowna are lot
quiet at the present time. The fruit
crop is heavy and the price of .
good and the returns from the fruit
crop will be satisfactory. Kelowna's
apples are noted for their tine quality, and command a ready market,
says Capt. Rose.

The appointment of Col. Kemball,
C, B., to the command of the tifty-
i mrth battalion will meet with general approval. On the surrender ot
the command of the battalion by
Lieut.-Col. W. M. Davis, who will organize a regiment ol pioneers In eastern Canada, Col, Kemball became tbe
senior oflicer of the battalion. He is
well qualified to assume command.
He saw much service In India, where
before retiring, he commanded a Gur-
ka regiment, and at Vernon he has
done good service as second in command of the 54th battalion, and has
won tbe confidence and esteem of all
ranks. The government has reconiz-
<-d his qualifications and ability by
appointing him to the command of
the battalion. Col. Kemball, whose
home is near Kaslo, is in every respect a worthy representative of Kootenay and under his command the
Kootenay battalion may be relied

They Will have learned to deny themselves, le. meet misfortune and disaster cheerfully and confidently, to persevere in the face of seemingly hopeless obstacles, to accept defeat With- |

soldiers are preparing themselves for
war they are also preparing themselves  for   peace, and they Will find  that
the  training and suffering which they
are  now undergoing,  and which  they;
must continue   to undergo as long as'
the war shall last, are assets     which

general satisfaction in Kootenay. The
people of Kootenay take deep interest and no little pride in the battalion which bears the name of Kootenay and there would have been general regret if military exigencies had
necessitated the loss of its identity.

Great Britain and France, and to a

eyes there has heen wrought an equally wonderful transformation ln     the

Profit-Sharing With Retail Buyers
On August 1, 11114 we made thc announcement that if we could make and
sell at retail 30,000' Ford cars between August 1, l'JH and August 1, 1916
we would share profits with the retail purchasers. We have sold only 18,-
"71 Ford cars in the time specified and, therefore, are unable to share
our profits with those who purchased Ford cars between the above dates.
Our plan to profit-share With retail purchasers of Ford cars during 1914-
1916 was not successful due to conditions which we could not possibly
ioresee at the time we made our annnouncement last August. The war
and thc consequent unsettled conditions of business seriously affected our
sales and increased our manufacturing coBta so that during the last year
we did not earn a profit not required for the normal expansion of our business both in a     manufacturing and service way.
However we still havc confidence in our profit sharing jilan, but a realisation of the uncertainty of conditions generally makes it advisable to
defer any announcement of future proht-sharing until a later date.
We are, however, jiositive we cannot reduce costs for several months, and
therefore can offer no profit-sharing for cars delivered during August,
September and October, 1916.

Germans Made Study
of Machine Guns
Discussing machine guns Tbe Army
and Navy Gazette says:
"Some enthusiastic statistician has
estimated that on the German front,
from the channel to the borders of
Switzerland, we and our allies now
are confronted by some 40i>,(K)0 machine guns of different models. This
means that there is rather more than ,
one machine gun for every forty men,
taking the enemy's number in the
west at one and a half million, or
one machine gun for every twenty-five
yards nf fr- >nt. We have no moans
of knowing whether this estimate is
or is not substantially correct, but
we do know that Germany i- itored
upon this war with a more correct
idea than any of her opponents t.nen
possessed of the possibilities of those
guns under certain conditions of warfare, with a very much larger number of them per thousand bayonets
than either the British or the French
had, and with an enormous reserve
in Germany gradually transferred to
advanced buses at convenient places
along the front.
"In the April number of the Corn-
bill there was a very illuminating
article on "German machine guns in
the trenches," and in the introduction to this, contributed by Lord
Sydenham. he enumerated several
surprises which the enemy had prepared f'3r our undoing, and while
pointing out how many of these had
failed in whole or in part to produce
the moral and material results which
had been hoped for, he was compelled
to admit that in the handling and
tactics of machine guns, however,, the
Germans had been tinder no delusion
and had elevated these weapons almost int.i a now arm. They ihave em-
ployed these guns in very large num-'
bers ind '.vith great effect, and since
the German retreat ceased on the
Aisne and the long protracted phase
of trench warfare began, machine
guns have been so used to inflict upon us a very heavy loss and to bring
to a standstill some of our most
carefully prepared and boldly executed  attacks.
"Since the cessation of the war in
the far east the Germans have made
ial study equally of the mechanics  and  of the  tactics  of  the   machine     gun;     they introduced a very
of the  weapon; and they
intrusted the handling of it to     ex-
They have  used   it  f.er      high-
sniplng,  both   by day and      by
they have employed machine
to enfilade their first line trcn-
,.-  to  "wipe out"  any     attack      which  may   overwhelm  its  de-
:  they have used them in concealment In rear and with great bold- |
ness     well t.e the front in the 'iring
lines;   while  in  the  offensive-defensive
the  guns have been  used  to  produce
the fire effect of large reinforcements I
a*  critical  moments.   In fact,  as bas
been truthfully (observed, the Germans
u=e their     machine guns, not merely
as  a  weapon  of opportunity, hut   as i
one     that creates  its opportunities, !
nnd,     perhaps,  it is not overstating
the    case to say that,  while we hold (
our  trenches  with   infantry,  the  Germans hold theirs with guns and maxims,    so     that    while their ordinary |
daily  wastage is  less,  mmparitively,
than  ours, thry are able to transfer
their Infantry Without  excessive risk,
and  to reinforce  threatened  nr weakened  sections of their line.
"We have nf late greatly augmented the number of machine guns with
e ill troops nnd are supplving better
and lighter models; we are doing
much at home nnd in tbe field itself
to increase the mechanical nnd tactical skill nf our machine gunners; nnd
though we be able, and pro-
