Revelstoke, B, C,, is the home of
Company 1). of the 10'2nd Regiment,
Rocky Mountain Rangers, and possesses a fine drill hall, which, since
the trouble started a year ago, has
been the scene of much activity, its
shining hardwood floors resounding
with the tramp of military movements from the somewhat ludicrous
gyrations of the "awkward squad"
mastering the intricacies of 'right

sweeping and rythmical marching ol
protracted company drill.
The regiment is commanded liy Lt.-

and who, we may be permitted to
state, Was recently awarded the 'Colonial Auxiliary Forces Officer's Decoration." Col. Vicars is most popular with his nan aad possesses their

Many of the R.M.R. boys are now
at the front, but the chief function of
the force in wartime is, as the name
implies, to guard the imperial highways throuth the passes of Uritish
Columbia, so that at the present
time at every point where needed
throughout the vast Pacilic province
may be found the 'hangers' guard ing
wicli armed watchfulness this important section of the line of communication.
Though far from the front their duty is none the less of great importance and has also its measure of danger und responsibility and it may
here be mentioned that there have
been encounters and consequent casu- —=
alties in this department of Home Having
Defence.
When one learns of the far reaching
and unscrupulous system of warfare
adopted by the enemy the civilian
mind can more fully realize the valuable' work being done by this splendid regiment, and while speeding over
the Canadian Pacific and when crossing the numerous steel structures
that span the rivers, gulfs and canyons of the mountain, it is with a
patriotic thrill and a Bensi ol Bafety
that the traveller perceives the alert

Kooteniy are proud, and havc every
reason to be proud of it.
That it will emulate the heroic
deeds of which the war has been so
fruitful no one doubts. Military glory
is not won without bloodshed, but it
will be the heartfelt hope of the peo-
ple of Kootenay that the battalion
may soon return, with its honors
thick upon it, after having performed
its     part   in  winning a triumph      for
those principles of honor mil liberty

by the assertion that much larger
sums have been spent on less defensible objects. There is no suspicion of
I igic in that. i
I'h" Idea Itself of carrying out tho
proposed referendum on a date other
i han that of a general election has
always appeared to us to be based
on some quite obscure theory. In traversing the premier's vicwB the
"World" appears to confuse an unfounded fancy with the intention of
being logical. Sir Richard's reasoning on that point is decidedly more
.sound than the objections of his critics.
It passes the wit of man, as Mr.
i.Mnlsti.ne would ha\e said, to perceive where the "confusing elements"
,ni t, any more than—if so much as
—when our simple electors of B, C.
face such an ordeal as voting for several aldermen and also one or two
bylaws on the same day. Nor Is it
more obvios why if the question to
bo pi ipounded is put in the one and
only way the official prohibitionists
approve it remains safely on a nonpartisan basis, and if put in any other shape whicli the government supposes to be more comprehensive and
liberal in scope it must then be a
"burning political quest Ion."
Sir Richard McBride has placed
himself in the position now of being
an advocate 'if a wide appeal that
should reach the whole electorate if
possible, whilst his critics opjiosc
that view by specious objections that
cannot carry any weight, and which
will in the opinion of many unbiased
people     s a to justify  the suspicion
' i they .ue based m d igmatlc ad
herence by the extrt ists to all their
own pre-conceptions as being Inviolably right There are more sides
than one to a pyramid, and we believe Premier McBride's contention
is undeniably correct, thai a much
larger proportion of the elect..rata

There     was     a     verse in a college
some years ago that stated:
"He held that kissing waB no crime
She held her head up every time."
And     it is probable that, although
the years have passed and the   youth
who    wrote those glowing words     is
now     sliding gently along the incline
that exists for men on the shady side
of     5'0,     the words are still true—in
some parts of the country any   way.
This is  brought to mind hy the ru-
1 ort that a boy of IS aud   a girl   of
iii were obliged to appear     before   a
magistrate down in Stapleton, Statin  island,  to answer to a charge      i'f
kissing—which   was deemed  by   some
  down that way, inimical to     tho
morals of lhe community at. large,
ihe boy anil girl apparently were not
cast down. M'he boy admitted that
m. kissed her ami she said she knew
tie did.   This showed Intelligence    em
the part of both the defendants and
:.. nlienists bad io be summoned, Fur«
thermore, the young lady in question
.-a'd she kissed tit" buy, and she likewise testified that she saw no harm
:ti it. Cn this point, it is understood, no corroborative evidence was
ie piired from the youth.
Thc fears.une question of the place
wlnr.' the kissing occurred was settled without recourse to the tcsti-
nony of civil engineers or architects.
IM e Miss ng was done in the home of
the young lady, and thc contention
was made bj the defendants that,
such being the case, there was hardly ground for outside complaint, inasmuch as such complaint constituted an Invasion of the right of privacy. Tlie magistrate thereupon dis-
missed     tl.e   case     and     discharged
the  defendants,    lie  seemed   to  think,'
it      is      sab'.,   that  while   the  kissing
might have been  in llscreet, no viola'
tion of the law existed.
NM.w, ns tin' magistrate in his high
esteem if the law was obliged to nd-
■nit that no crime was committed in

DRUG PRICES
GONE SKYWARD
Local Druggist Says That Demands of Munition Makers
Are Responsible
A prominent local druggist, interviewed as to why the price of drugs
bad gone up to such an extent Bince
the war, threw some light ou the subject.
Owe reason he gave is that Canada
■depends almost entirely upon the people and products of other nations for
(supplies of chemicals, drugs, roots,
■barks uud herbs.
Tho public has already heard of the
efforts being made by chemists to fur-
liiBh some of the drugs, extracts and
chemicals which have hitherto beeu
cbtaiii'.'d almost entirely irom the
German manufactures. Eliminating
the awful cost in lives, the immeasurable toll in human happiness, aud,
more materially, the disorganization
of those businesses which are a part
cf the Uritish empires assets, tbe
war is destined to have far reaching
.effects for the enrichment oi the na-
tiou. For the hand-maiden oi invei>
tion, viz., business enterprise, Is torc-
ed upon her by necessity, and both
Bcier.itilically and commercially Bhe
jnust be strengthened by the co-operation of these sisters .if industry.
Why'' Because those chemical manufactures, for the past twenty-live
or fifty years monopolised by the
Germans, arc still needed by the rest
of the world, aud must Me secured
from sources rearer home now that
Germany has been isolated from com-
merce. Tins has already set tho
chemisl at work along practical lines. Chemicals which early in the war
became absolutely unobtainable
through the closing of the German
a 'iirce of sui)pl> are now slowly
creeping back into the market
through entirely new channels. Tbe
British and American chemist is beginning to manufacture as well as to
retail drugs,
But in th.' meantime what has happened? An unprecedented advance in
i lie price ' : practically everything iu
tin- way .ei che tiicals. With practically the whole "t Buropi at war tho
demand tor c rtain drugs and chemicals lias Bent thi' price skyward aa
never before. Carbolic acid, for Instance, bas .- lared and Boared, until
today   it sta'als a!   a  | I     is
just     two the . ci nt.   hi. her
than it was at the Mc,,,, : ng • 1 the

The ; a-oi is one which is more or

Quinine is not listed with thc afcove
as it has beeu reserved for special
mention. Quinine was 20' cents an
ounce hefore the war; when the first
advance came it shot up to 35 cents,
then to 10 cents. Up to October 8 it
had advanced altogether 100 per cent:
This was had euough. But suddenly,
about a month ago came the somewhat staggering announcement, from
the wholesale druggists that the
price would be $2 an ounce. This
wub au advance of !MJ0 per cent, over
and above the hefore-the-war cost.
The retail druggist was powerless to
protest, although he, with his greater knowledge uf the source of the
drug and the method of its manufacture had perhaps more reason than
the public, whicli is only acutely alive to the fact that the cost has increased without any particular iuter-
ist in  the cause.
ln the case of quinine even the retail druggiat In most instances is
just as sceptical as the layman. For
every chemist knows that quinine is
produced Irom cinchona, a Peruvian
hark yielded in commercial quantities
by an evergreen tree found in great
abundance in tlie Andes mountains.
War conditions have not affected
South America, at least not to the
extent of Stopping such au industry
us bark stripping. True, the process
of extracting quinine was carried on
very largely in Germany, where enormous shipments of the bark were
sent annually. Hut there was nothing
secret in the process, and some of
the more astute druggists are behind
the abnormal advance in the price of
quinine, a manipulation of the mar-
Met on the part of the manufacturing
druggist. The war, is iu this case
not only an evil in itself, but is actually u scajiegoat.
A leading wholesale druggist of this
province referred a day or two ago
to the embargo which has been Imposed upon shipments of quinine from
Great Britain, who has declared this
drug to be contraband. This has
handicapped the manufacturing operations of American alkal dd-makers
by preventing shipments of cinchona
Mark save those on the island or ja-
e.a, where the Dutch have carried on
a small but quite successful industry
in tbis ir.,duct. Hut the Java alkaloid manufacturers' output is too
meagre to replace ad qua ely the
supply which has been lost for tne
time being through the operation of
Mime agency not quite understood.
And there is little reassurance in the
news that a NM-w York trust concern
has cornered l,COO,O0fl ounces of quinine to be sold whepi ihe price has
run up lo its maximum point.

"wool fat." It iB an article handled
ia great quantities by the druggist.
One would imagine that it would be
cheapest in any country were sheep
growing was carried on extensively.
Australia and New Zealand, even the
British Isles themselves, are noted
for the scale on which they conduct
the industry. Vet it is on Germany
that the drug market of the empire
has depended for its supply of lano-
line. The greatest manufacturers
were the makers of the "''Darting
Brand" put up at JIartinikenfelde in
Germany, and of which Burroughs &
Wellcome, of London, were proprietors. Their product was regarded by
chemists the world over as,the standard lanuline, and enjoyed a sale proportionate to their reputation. Then
the war came. The German article
was closed off the market. Today the
British manufacturer is doing what
he should hnve been doing this past
twenty-five years. He is manufacturing his own lanoline, in his own
country, and has already built up a
wide business within the empire
which formerly was transacted to the
benefit of the German. The moral
might be carried still further and the
question asked: Why should not Canada manufacture many of these things
too?
The story of the anoline dyes is
another instance of the same thing.
So thoroughly had Germany monopolised the manufacture of these that
when wnr was declared.a gasp of dismay wene up from the textile makers
How were they going to replace tho
delicate variations which were to bo
secured in the foreign-supplied dyes ?
Yet today the textile buyer is little
the wiser. Germany may have had
the monopoly of the business, but she
had not the monopoly in brains, and
dyes arc now being manufactured outside of the Teutonic empire tbat aro
as artistic and durable as any ever
shipped from that beleagured kingdom.
There are. of course, some things
which nre a nation's by prime lease
of nature. All the potash salts came
largely from Germany, as they were
found there in almost inexhaustible
quantities. It is on account of the
scarcity of these potasli salts since
ee that permanganate of potash
familiar in every household as a disinfectant, has jumped from 18 to 20
rents per pound to $2.
On the othei hand i e iM Isb em
pire controls the rubber supply ofthe
world. But she allowed Germany to
capture a profitable mis ness which

Dlarsenol, formerlj manufactured in
Germany and nowhere else in the
world, was also introduced into com-
mi ree by a ' '• i nan. Now, by special
icense from the non, commissioner >>f
patents, Canada, it is made by tho

There are always reasons lor tb'. so
called "capture of trade." Germany
doubtless secured the monopoly of the
drug market because she settled to
the task determinedly. By sheer persistence sho made her markets, even
at an actual initial loss, if need be
selling her products at less than cost
to g'>t a foothold. She had cheap labor, chemists, facilities for shipping
to every part of the world. But Britain has all these things. Labor iB
perhaps more expensive. But her
chemists are at least as clever, and
her shipping facilities are unrivalled
hy any nation iu the world. The redeeming point is that Providence provided other talents for tlie use of the
British, and these they have used
wisely.
One might continue to cite instances
through the whole pharmacopaea of
how Germany has monopolised tbe
manufacture of chemicals, both In the
medicinal line and in the arts. Not
only did sine manufacture a splendid
liie' of these, but at a price which
."mil.' it almost Impossible for any-
other country, to compete with her in
the market, Her business today is
crippled, her prestige woken. Now is
thc opportunity for the British aud
Canadian and Australian chemist to
get his laboratories and his factories
going, and capture a market which is
his if he but sets about the task determinedly and industriously. With
inter-dependence of tlie motherland
with her overseas dominions, the
i3ritish emjirc will pise superior for
all time to the kind of commercial
in mvenience which is typified in the
present drug crisis of the world.
STANDARDIZING
CANADIAN  EGGS
each instance has supplemented tha
display with actual demonstrations,
iu a candling booth specially designed for the purpose, of the way iu
which eggs of the various grades appear when candled.
ln order that the consumers aud
producers generally may becomo
more familiar with the various classes and grades the following explanation is given".
Three general classes for eggs aro
provided under the standards viz:—
"Fresh gathered," "storage," and
"cracked and dirties." Four grades
are provided iu the first class, tbreo
in the second, aud  two in tbe third.
The grades in the 'fresh gathered'
class aro 'specials,' ''extras,' 'No. l's'
and No. 2's.' The grade 'specials' is
omitted from the 'storage' class and
both specials and extias from the
class for 'cracked and  dirties.'
'Specials' according to the standards are eggs of uniform size iTOigh-
Ing over 21 ounces to the dozen "r
over IG pounds net to the 30 dozen
case; absolutely clean, strong and
sound in shell; air cell small, not over three-sixteenths of an inch in
j depth; white of egg linn and clear
| and yoke dimly visible; free from
blood clots.
'Extras' are cu'gs of nood size,
weighing at least 24 ounces to the
dozen or -13 pounds net to the 30
dozen case; clean, sound in shell; air
shell less than ;' of an inch in depth;
with white of egg linn, and the yolk
slightly visible.
'No. l's' are eggs weighing at least
23 ounces to the dozen or 43 pounds
net to the :)t) dozen case; clean;
sound in shell; air shell less than
I inch in depth; white of egg reasonably firm; yolk visible but mobile,
not stuck to the shell or sen mslj
out of place.
From present indications it would
appear that one of the most important developments to date in the improvement of the Canadian egg trade
was the actieen taken by the Canadian Produce association last wiBter
in adopting definite standards for
Canadian eggs.
Hitherto each market aud in most
markets each dealer had a system of
grading peculiar to his own trade.
This resulted in endless confusion to
the consumer and great difficulty was
experienced at times on the part ot
the producer in finding a satisfactory
larket for his product,
Reulising the Importance ol having
definite standards for ail Uve stock
products the lave rftjer. Branch of
the Dominion Department of Agriculture has endeavored hy means of
pamphlets, placards and other means
to give the standards ior eggs us j

'No. 2's' are egs;s clean; sound In

and eggs with heavy yolks, and all
other eggs sound in shell and fit for
food.
Consumers in order to protect
themselves in the matter ot purchasing eggs should acquaint themselves
with these standards and the above
definition's of the grades. Only by,
creating a demand for certain grades
of eggs will the supply be forthcoming, and the demand can come only
with a thorough knowledge on the
part of the consumer as to what
constitutes the various grades. It has
also been frequently suggested that
since the adoption of the standards
consamers generally in order to safeguard themselves, would do well to
insist that all eegs as offered for
sale be labelled In accordance with
their proper  i_-rade.
Producers too, would do well to
more systematically zrade their eggs
before marketing, and knowing defin-
Itely what they have in hand thereby
be in a bitter position tei demand a
price commensurate witb the quality
supplied.

CYPRUS HAS
LONG HISTORY
"Colonized by Phoenicians Two
Thousand Years Before
Christ
The island of Cyprus, wliicb recently achieved, for some 21 hours, a first
(dace in the world's press in consequence of Oreat Britain's oiler of the
island to Greece on condition that sho
would come to the help of Serbia has
a curious Interesting history, it is
one of the "old lands" ol the world
indeed it is among the oldest. The
I hoenicians colonised it about the
jear 2000 B. C, but little Is known
of their history, and it was not uutil
much later when the Greeks sent settlers to the island that the history
of Cyprus becomes in any sense con-
Becutive. With an energj characteristic of tin in in. all such matters, the
Greeks Instituted certain religious reforms, and the worship ol the Paph-
ian Venus gradually took the place of
the Phoenician Astarte. The exact
.Mac of this colonization is uncertain.
It was, bow iver, about the middle of
the sixth century IM I ., that the island passed temporarily Into the
hands of Amasis of Egypt.
From that date until the time of
the Roman occupation. In the middle
of the hrst century B. <_'., Cyprus was
thrown back and forth, as it were,
between Europe, Asia and Africa, in
the matter of ownership. Camoyses
■ if Persia, Alexander the Great, Ptolemy of Egypt and finally Rome all
held sway over the Island. Cicero
end tin' younger Cato were amongst
its first governors, ar.i.1 the Cypriote
were one of the first gentile peoples
to recei\e Christianity. Paul, Barna-
baa and Mark all visited thc Island,
Cyprus was the seat ol an archbishopric. In its later history it changed
bands many, times. From the Oth-
iiinn conquest in i.4i until 975, it was
- n,. of repeate 1 Arab Invasions.
Then for ab ut '■■■' years, from 1185
onwards, it was governed by the family of Guy de Luslgnan, alter it had
heen c by Richard I. on   bis
way to the third crusade. In 14S7 it
came under the rule of the Venetian
republic, but was finally conruered by
the Murks In 1570. From that moment     until 1878, when it was taken
ver by Oreat Britain, the island like
all other countries swept by the Os-
manli flood, has little oi no history.
lt is true ;i.!r Its history sine,' that
time, "un.i. tl ise," has not heen
eventful      i en characterized
largely by the vigo ous eBorts on the
part  o!  the ;  itlon to   sc-
■■•.p i a del i. over     the
Muhammadan, but the Island has at
..ny rate.  I iecurc   against     those
persecut ive attended Tur
kish rule in so many Turkish provinces whei stian populat Ion lu
• all numerous.
As a m if ■;■ f fact, the po isession
-if Cyprus has nevei been popular in
Great Britain, even among Rritish
statesmen \t first it wa? regarded
■.s an astiit.. diplomatic achievement,
nimed at tl.e protection i l British Interests in the Sr.e;: canal; but as the
British occupation <■'. Egypt became
more and n ore firmly estal lished, the
value 'if Cyprus .is .-• military anl
nival      Mas--      ,.;,,-. -,  ,;,..;      g   , ,,.  three
years ago, indeed, Sir Louis Har-
C'Hirt,     the then Co cretary,
frankly regretted thai England had ever taken it over. The annual tribute
to Turkey was. urfcil the fiual annexation of the Island by Great Britain
list year. £92,0 10 and ol this, the
iMitish governn ent paid some B50,-
000. Am th» Egyptian Mall remarked
some time/a:-'), be wever, In discussing
the question, It waa easier for Great
I'ritain to obtain possession of Oyp«
ms than it would be to get rid or it.
She had it from Turkey on the 'per
petual' basis, and until the annexation, she would have had no alternative, if she wanted possession, than
l'i band it hack to Turkey. Whether
or not the annexation last year was
from the first preliminary to getting
iid of the island cannot, of course,
bo'even surmised, hut in offering lt to
Greece, the British government was
icrtainly not offering to give up territory which held any place in the regard or concern of the British people.

KASLO, B. C, Nov, 12—The board
of trade met to discuss the situation
which will ensue if the Canadian Pacilic railway carries out its intention
as officially announced, of shutting
down uutil further notice the Kootenay and Arrowhead branch between
Lardo and Gerrard, as well as tho
dependent steamer service onl Trout
lake. The feeling was pretty strong
that the district should be protected
from such isolation as would result
from the action. It was conceded
that the a miles in m Gerrard to
Lardo le not a dividend payer, but it
was argued that there is ii Bplendid
agricultural   and   richly   timbered   ells-
trict throughout the entire length of
the valley and that many promising
mineral prospects are being steadily
developed, The Great Britain group
is on this line and it is being worked
by Rossland capital. The mining properties on Meadow Creek. Poplar and
Cascade creeks are not reached by
i.ny other route. At i^a Blanch eight
•niles north of Lardo is the jiinnt. ol
the Canadian Marble Works where
Winnipeg capital to the amount of
$250,000 is invested in modern machinery. Mthough not now in ojiera-
tion this concern was busily engaged
on two or three large contracts when
the war broke out.
A large sawmill at Gerrard depends
on this route for an outlet. It was
declared that time will show there is
no more promising country than the
Lardo.
Sti mgly w.irded telegrams were
sent to George Bury, vice president ;
WM O. Miller, district superintendent,
and F, WM Peters, general superintendent Of .the British Columbia division.
MOLSON'S     BANK     PAYti  THEIB
USUAL DIVIDEND
IM. ler existing conditions it cannot
be expected that the earnings of tha
.•lolson's Bank can ,'ie as large as
those in previous years, The fact
that the current loans have decreased and the deposits Increased means
thai the bank is carrying sums of
money which are ni t earning inter
est.
Notwithstanding this fact, however,
it profits of the bank for ths
year ending September 30, 1915 were
Z3.9 per cent., enabling the bank to
pay its 11 per cent, dividend and
still hive a surplus. Last year-l!'li-
the earnings were 15.2 per cent.
Ii posits she v. a considerable in
crease and the bank's position so far
as : ck •■■■■ t- go Is particularly
amounting to about -ll jeer
tent, of tlie total liabilities to the
public.
An     interesting feature is the    Increase -ef abo      -1   '.' ' .  in the   item

STANDARD s   EARNINGS.
The net earnings of the Standard
Silver-Lead Mining company, which
owns and operates the Standard
mine and m I it Silverton, B, C, for
nber were $88,057, according to
' i iii rei ort of the company, issued l days ago. The balance on
Sept • • ,732, from which tho
$50,000 dividend paid Sept. UJ' was deducted leaving $224,779 on hand Sejit.
Ti. No report is available yet for
Oi toi i'i, but in view of the fact that
thi - pai y be ;an forwarding tha

lii-M-d the earnings will be in excess
of the Sejitember earnings.
Development and mining operations
are heinir carried on simultaneously
at the Standard, and the rejiort
shows that the amount of new work
dona during the period was anout the
same as in the previous month.
