OFFICERS OF
ASSOCIATION
Last    Month's   Work   Shows
Deficit     Institution Deserves Support
The generul secretary of our local
V.M.C.A., brought before the directors ut their regular monthly meeting
beld on Tuesday evening last, some
I interesting fucts regarding the finances'and membership of the association.
Last month's report show receipts
amounting to $402.&5, expenditures
$523.19, leaving a 'deficit tor the
month of $120.Sl.
The membership compared witb last
month of the previous year show a
falling off of 48 members, thus an appeal to (the men of the city who have
not as yet identified .themselves with
the association to sacrifico a little
for their home association.
I "Many just and needed appeals
have been made upon our citizeus
during the past few months, but we
must safeguard alBo our association
for the boys on their return to their
home in Revelstoke," says the secretary.
j During the month of May a baseball
league haB been formed, and the citizens enjoy an hour in the cool of the
evening watching the games.
From May 4 to 17, a swimming
campaign was'carried out for non-
swimmers. In all 194 lessons were
given, about 70 individuals taking
advantage of the opportunity, at the
end of the campaign 1"> were able to
pass the swimming test.
On May 20, Physical Director Harding started giving the Revelstoke recruits physical drill in preparation
for their work in the military camp
in Vernon. From 30 to 40 minutes
.tiff calesthenic and breathing work
is given'every morning before the regular company drill is begun, and
the men are beginning to feel the
benefit of it This is to continue till
the men  leave Revelstoke.
The association stands for clean
manhood and amateur sport, and appeals to all those who are members
to assist in trying to secure another
member to fill the place of the 65
members who have enlisted and today are fighting our battles. _

that the representative of the hotel

lorin which lie considered unsuitable,
He also asked that he be given facilities for obtaining express, .which Was
often of a perishable nature, on the
arrival of the train.
Mr. McMullen for tbe Canadian Pacific railway contended that complaints must be brought before the
board by those doing business with
the company. Mr. Congneve as u
third party had no standing.
J. M. McKay, Canadian Pacifx
railway superintendent said that until that morning he did not know-
that the space on the platform allotted to the hotel WaB unsatisfactory. He had received no complaint.
Sir Henry L. Drayton, chairman of
lhe board, said that thc board
would make no order. He thought

the situation and make a report.
So far as the express was concerned it was arranged that it should be
procurable after the train left.

the Kelowna hoard of trade against 1
the charge made by the Canadian |
Pacific railway for hauling cars from

W. B. Lanigan, assistant traffic
manager for Canadian Pacific western lines, submitted that the company was making a charge only sufficient to cover the cost of the service. The tiding had been put in at
the request of the city of Kelowna.
Hc did not think that the city
should expect the company to transfer the cars from the dock at less
than cost.
Judgment was reserved.

AT  THE  THEATRES
ORGANIZING A NATION
One    of    the   first  important    decisions of the new Uritish government
will be to take a     census of British
workers  to classify  the men  ol  mi.it
ary  age remaining'     In     occupations
both essentia]   ind n n-esscntlal    for
war purposes.    The whole  industrial
operating power i f the nation  la to
he turned to war account. Half ol the
commercial travelers of Britain have
enlisted. The new census    will     find
out how mnny of the remainder   are
■working  in   lines  that hive  no  bearing in furthering the war. The miners
the munition-workers, the transportation   workers,  the farm  workers and
others in  basic  industries  are not  to
be called upon  f ir enlisting,     Some
collieries     wh >se    product has been
much  needed  by  the admiralty      services have had  almost ,to shut down
because of employes enlistment.   The
operations of  armament  firms      have
heen curtailed because of enlistments,
The object of the reshaping of the industrial life of lhe country is to prevent depreciation  ■! the output     of
material necessary     for war througb
workers  enlisting,   and to  bring  into
the army  all the  i li ibles  in     other
lines.   Efforts will le made to    drain
thc-  cities  and   towns  and villages    of
young  men in      the     offices,    behind
Counters,   and   in      delivery   services.
Women  are to  te  employed  wherever
they can replace    nun. Those non-essential   workers  whose physical condition deu's not permit of enlistment
will be <■<! ted to lend   a band    at
munition-making "i  either war work,
In   this  manner  the whole  power      .ef
3ritain  will  be gradually  brought  to
bear,   both  militarily  and  Indu
ly, upon the grand ol/ject of di
Germany.  Britain  never h

Paper Read to Canadian Club
by Ex-President of London  Club
Members of the Canadian Club
were favored by an impressive and
interesting lecture on Monday evening, by Mrs. F. Betts, who is ex-
president nif the Women's Canadian
dub of London, Ontario, the BUbject
being, "The changed aspect of England since the outbreak of  the , War.'
The meeting was held in thc High
school with.' the president, Mrs. H.
N. Coursier in the chair. The singing of the "Maple Leaf," opened the
meeting, after' which the president
introduced the speaker in a few 'Well
chosen  words.
Mrs. Betts prefaced hei address by
a short speech, saying how pleased
she was to be with tbc club. Al-
i bough she felt she wns no speaker,
il would he a pleasure to read her
little paper.
A vote i I thanks was tendered to
Mis. Betts by Mrs. .Krnest 11. S. Mclean,   win.   said the   address      would

|. It i I shall briefly outline where
iiiv live months aw iy fron Canada
were "i" nt,
Landing a< Liverpool on the   first
of   November,   I took   train  for    Lon
don    From  London   niter three week's
stay, i went to Berkampsted    to ,e
near my son who was training with
"thc Inns of Court Brigade" Upon
his getting his commission and being
gazetted with the Oheshircs jit Swindon, I returned to London and remained there till the middle iof
January when he got his transfer to
the Royal Engineers and wub sent
to Boulogne in charge of railroad
transport. 1 then went to Southhampton to stay with friends and
on to Bournemouth for a shorty visit
and from there to Oxford for two
weeks. I spent two weeks in .Liverpool and two In a manufacturing
centre near Oldham, close to Rochdale, John Briirht's old home and
midway    between    Manchester    and
Hudderslield.
Each place I visited brings back
to me its own character and memories but in all these various memories
stands out, clear and never-to-be-tor-
rotten, the vision of the maimed and
broken ones, returned to the Motherland to be tenderly nursed hack to
life and fitness for tbeir terrible
task.
(if the trip over, not much need
he said. While still iii the gulf the
order was given and all portholes
were c'overed with heavy grey blankets carefully tucked in. The purser
explained that this was unusual in
the gulf but thnt 'a suspicious looking ship on the horizon' was the
cause of this extra precaution and
added "our captain takes no chances" which was reassuring, it being
our Captain's first command of a
liner as well as the first trip of the
new Canadian Pacific railway boat
by which  we crossed.
Our one excitement was the sudden
change in our course from the north
to the south of Ireland (warning
having been given hy wirclcsB of
mines ahead) and the appearance at
the same time of a British man-of-
war to guard us. We anchored about
2 a.m. The shore was brilli. nt with
electric lights. Soon we began to
creep slowly in toward the shore. A
faint light was coming in the sky
end quenching the glitter of the
ferry boats darting back and forth.
Tbe gangway was guarded and no
one allowed to land till, every individual had answered a scries of questions and had satisfied the authorities on the subject of their loyalty
to Britain. We reached London well
on in the afternoon. London!, Wonderful London! Have we realized her
greatness? How she has lept to arms
at her country's need. How she has
responded to the call to service. Not
for one moment can one forget the
struggle or lose the tense urge forward of the multitude claiming the
privilege of service.
Those first days in London werc
too crammed with sensation and left
me only a blur) of marching soldiers,
of raw recruits drilling in Hyde
Park, of darting motor ambulances,
thc  red cross  painted  on  the    kbaki
colored body; of shop windows witl*
none but the prevailing khaki coloring and with everything displayed a.
Boldier could need, of taxis speeding
rapidly but giving one time to catch.
such appeals printed large across ther
gluss shields, as "Young men o£
London, your country needs you"''
"A call to arms enlist for the duration of the war";' "Make victory'
ewift and certain, enlist now"j
"Wake up England, men are wanted"
etc., In all available spaces poster*'
were placed. Nelson's column never
fails to thrill me as I see the gallant
little figure against the sky. Now,
it hearB the words "England expect*
every man to do his duty" writ
large, with the great crouching
Horn* at its baae each bearing an ai
monition to the men of England*

Emperor Francis Joseph has issued
a call to his troops in which he calls
[Italy's action perfidy unequalled in
history and expresses c nfid'-nce that
jthey will successfully defend the
I Austrians against the new enemy.
; The German Emperor and his stafl
;if a Buda-Pest despatch is to be believed, had a narrow escape on Sunday, May 16, while watching the operations in a village near the river
San in Galicia. When a shell burst
500 yards away it fell among some
automobiles, destroying several machines, including the Emperor's, and
killing his chaufleur. The Emperor
had left his car only fifteen minutes
hefore.
The Paris "Liherte' states that the
German authorities have ordered the
destruction of all growing -winter
wheat in that portion of French territory which they occupy. This is regarded as a must convincing indication that tbe Germans do not expect
to remain in France later than this
summer. If the order Jielieved ,to have
been issued is cenerallv carried out,
its significance can scarcely be overestimated. The Germans forced the
French prns.ints last fall ln the occupied districtp to plant every acre
of wheat tbat Could be seeded between the date .ef their occupation
and the ci ming of winter. If now
they arc destroying the crop they
were so insistent "n the farmers
planting they have manifestly no
hope of being nn the spot when it iB
garnered.
The British submarine 'E 14' has
been doing some wonderful work in
the Dardanelles according to the official report of the admiralty. She
passed easterly through the straits
on April 2lJth and 6anK a Turkish
gun-boat and a transport. On May
:i she sank a second gun-boat. On May
10 she torpedoed and sank a large
transport full of troops, and on the
13th she Compelled a small steamer
to run aground. The westward pas-
sage through the straits with their
protection of mines was made safely
on May 18. Every member of her
crew has been decorated.
A joint otlicial statement by Great
Britain, France and Russia issued on
May 2'i, states that for the past
month Kurds and the Turkish population of Armenia have been engaged
in massacring Armenians with the
connivance and help of the ottoman
authorities. Such massacres took
place about the middle of April at
Erzerum and other places in Galicia.
The inhabitants of about a hundred
villages near Van were all assassinated. In thl town itself tho Armenian
quarter is besieged by Kurds. At the
same time the Ottoman government
at Constantinople is raging against.
the inoffensive Armenian population.
In the face of these fresh crimes committed by Turkey, the nllies' governments announce publicly to the Sublime Porte that, they will hold all
members of thc government, as well
as Rnch of their agents as are implicated, personally responsible for
such mBBsacres.

Military Reserves of
Canada to be Organized
The military reserves in Canada, aro
shortly to be organized. To that
endi a special committee haB, been appointed by the minister of militia. It
is estimate.1 that throughout bhe
Dominion at present there are :JDlt,-
•r-OO men who have Berved at one time
or another in the militia, but have
retired. Tbere are thousands of others who ordinarily would be too old
to join tlie service, but would be of
value in case of any trouble at home
or to bring up the estimate, the regiments whose ranks hava been depleted by enlistment for overseas service. The proposal of reserve bntta-
lions was suggested by Lord Dun-
donald   and   advocated  by  the present
mini ter of militia as early as i>".i_m
Details of the plan havc not yet
been decided on, but the general idea
is to enroll and keep tab on all who
are eligible for military service even
though tbey are not able to go to the
ft ont.
For the purpose above mentioned
they would at least be of service at
home.

it. was estimated today that so long
as the soldiers stay here there will
be expended In Vernon or through
the Okanagan possibly $3e_U,Oi)0' a
month. ,
The camp itsi'lf will represent the
Investment ol thousands ol dollars.
Bell tents and ents and blankets cost
money and there are hundreds and
thousands of accoutrements and uniforms and miniature mountains of
•equipment needed to supply the soldiers. Tents nre being strung up at a
great rate and each oi e of these tents
contains on an average ten men. The
tents are designed to give sleeping
toomito 21 men, but that would nec-
cesBitate the men sleeping with only
a few inches between them, feet tei
pole and had.-; to the edge of the
tent.
Preparations tor the men's comfort
and san t ry conveniences are well
idvai ced. The Young Men's Christian
tssoclation hes sent Mr. Sovereign
from N'ew Westminster here. Mr. So-
verelgn is a physical director and
leader, He Bald that his marquee'wlll
be always open to the men. His own
'.vork will c insist of athletic instruction and BOcial work. He has friends
with the British soldiers in the tren-
li a and he says that the Germans
..ave sent seven Y.M.C.A. men into
their trenches.
Vernon is making every preparation to help entertain the soldiers.
S..me of the townspeople have open-
id their bouses to oflicers and men
and numerous dances and entertainments are planned.
Under the direction of Colonel J.
Duff-Stuart, officer commanding, a
great sweep of a hill, now covered
.villi grass and wild flowers, is be-
ing c.inverted into a military en-
.ampment. Hundreds of hell tents are
■Mein.: set up. the engineers and the
lrn.y service c irps erecting 320 in a
.-ingle day. The tents are being laid
out In squares and blocks, each
squ<are a little village in itself, with
its s'le.uati waterworks system, its
,-hower laths, mess tents, wash tab-
Ms and all 'f 'he most modern military al as carried out for the benefit
ef the n en's health and e imfort.
After sundown the litihts are turn-
id "ti and it is as though a second
little Vernon had sprung up overnight. Hundreds ol arc and ine indes-
cent lights illuminate the ramp.
From it th" whole country for
miles around lies like an open hook.
T.e it from the cool depths of the
Okanagan lake blow breezes which
temper the intense heat that seems

. The e imp lies along the upper ed.e of this hollow, extending
around the rim. It is treeless and of

German!* and Austrians, held in the
internment camp, which lies on the
opposite rim, three miles away, have
built the ditches and laid the water
mains. Tbey have done much of th-.
rough unskilled labor, the founda-
tlon work of the camp. A, little de-
i ichment ol thirty prisoners, guarded by men ol the 10th B.C. Horse, are
ic rted through Veraon t.i the train-

Revelstoke Boys Hsve
Good Luck at Front
The following letter has been     received  by Allan Thomson from Geoffrey  Still who left  RevelBtoke     with
hhe first contingent and who is   now I
at the front:
,    My. Dear Allan,—I  don't feel     one
j bit  like writing  letters,   but I  know
that you  will    be   looking     for one
from me so ru endeavor", to    overcome  my feeling of  laziness.
1 won't need to tell you anything
about the happening up at Ypres as
this will be stale news to you people
but let me warn you not to believe
all you read in, especially Canadian
paiiers. I have seen and read some of
the letters purporting to have heen
s nt ly men at the front, and for
a'se late rot they bave anything I've
ever heard beaten a hundred ways, In
one letter the writer claimed to havc
been in two battles, of extreme importance, and described them in detail, telling how be received a shrapnel wound, etc., as it so happens the
two battles took place almost at the
same hour, at a distance of a: out 'JO
miles, and a Montreal paper printed
it—for a joke I expect. Of course I
don't with to infer that all the pap-
irs say is rot, just some individual
letters, which tell of sjme man's
own experiences.
•Ae are now quite a distance from
that battle ground nnd are in turn
attacking the Germans, our division
having already taken several trenches from them.I These German trenches are of a most elaborate style, heing built deep, narrow and almost
Shrapnel proof, these dug-outs having
doors and w.ndows in; in another
dug-out which was evidently an officers was a side-board, tahle aud
large mirror and two or three easy
chairs, some style, eh; and yet when
we (the British) took this trench
they offered such a feeble resistance
thuU our casualties in the attack
was only ahout 15. If the British or
Canadian troops had had trenches
like these the whole German army
could never have dislodged them. My
opinion of the Germans as fighting
men is that they are a poor hunch of
'cads' and that they are on the same
level as an insect of the pest type—
a type to be totally and wholly des-
noyed without consideration being
.■hown for any one individual. I expect you heard of them crucifying
two of our men up at Ypres, well it
has already cost thin dearly, there
are still -a few more Canadian regiments to interview them yet, so I
imagine it will cost quite a I it yet,
and then after that score is paid off
we will start on the Lusitania account. The Liverpool regiment mude
a charge the other day and it is said
that as they drove their bayonets
home, they shouted 'Lusitania' at
them. If we use 'gas' against them,
as I am led to believe by the papers
we are going to do in tbe near future
The days of the Hun in Belgium is
;_oing to be of short shift.
All of the Revelstoke boys except
poor, little Johnny Boyle have, so
far, experienced very good luck. Bob
Reed being the only man wounded. I
did not see the wound, but from
what I am told it was a rifle bullet
through the leg or. foot, some say
he will be none tbe worse for it and
others say he will he crippled for life.
We all hope for the i est and are
anxiously waiting to get a letter
Irom him. I fir^ot to mention Jack |
Edgar who at one time held a bridge
loreman's joM on the Canadian Paci-
Dc railway, out ol Revelstoke Tie also
was slightly wounded, a scratch on
I < face and a small piece ol shr.'p-
nel In his bark, he is now in Boulogne hospital, but is getting along
line—tbe rest e.f tli 1 oys are all
O.K. All ol us expecting and hoping
that'the next two months will see
tbe successful crushing of Germany.
Well 'old man' 1 have given you
quite an epistle sj sending everyone
in the ' Y"' my best regards and
wishing you the best of luck I will
close for this time. Write wben you
get a chance. Tell me all about
tennis, baseball, etc.,
