Majesty King George V. We are offering special prayer and supplications to Almighty God in this time
of dir» and dreadful distress of individuals and nations. God is still
< ur help and refuge, but it is only in
the dark hours of awful distress and
calamities that the nation meets Him
face to face. As wttb Individuals so
with nations it is only in supreme
crisis that God is sen tn His true
reality and power. Ordinarily He has

He welcomed the Rocky Mountain

and soldiers |i |g tbey who guard
and keep the State. The highest lunc-
tion of every state was hei will, and
of wh t us" waa Wj|| without an
adequate power to enforce that will.
The will of the Uritish empire was
truth, liberty, freedom and lair-play:
and the soldiers were thc gleaming
■words that guard and Keep these
precious brith rights. All honor to
tbe soldiers. "There are," said thc
late Vi. E. Gladstone, "only two professions of honor open to men, viz:
those .ef parson and soldier." Truly

and seek th"ir reward in material
profit  and advantage.
He welcomed them also because
they nre the defenders of our homes.
In tunes of peace we arc afraid that
Um e.Idler Is not appreciated as he
ought to be, but when thc grim demons of bloody inst and barbaric
rrimes defile women and mutilate
children, as they have in the giguntic
fctruggle and debacle, then thc soldier rises to his true worth and we
salute him as our defender.
He welcomed them because of their
courage. There ts no gainsaying tho
truth thnt it takes courage to be a
soldier under modern conditions of
scientific warfare, on the land, In thc
air, nn the sea and under the sea.
Language fails to describe it all   and
es| lally the artillery lire. What does
it    mean'      It      means       death,  But
"How can  man  elie better than fac-

Kuropatkin    In    dimming the ten
sons fm SUCCCSS of tbe Japanese m
the   Russo-Japanese  Win   lays     much
emphasis on the 'moral strength' or
courage of Japan. He says that a
Russian expert insisted at the opening of the war that one Russian
was as good as three Japanese: but
as the war went on he admitted his
mistake and said that tbey would
have to send a Russian s. .ldier to
meet every Japanese: and that towards the end he held that it would
need three Russians to overcome one
Jajpenese. Tho superiority of "the
men of Nippon" lay in their moral
superiority. They believed ifa their
catiBe. They would rather die than
lose. Moral courage sustained the
United States soldiers who lought
under Washington. Moral strength
armed the British who finally fought
Napoleon when he threatened to conquer Europe. And so we trust that it
is this same virtue that quickens
blood and brains of British soldiers
so that they may conquer that modern   Atilla and Prussian militarism.
"Wherefore brethren we must 'tight
a Good Fight.' There can be no doubt
about our right to make war or our
duty. Fight we must: if we don't kill
them they will kill us.
"We are called to (1) Worship.
Worship God: because we become like
what wc worship and because our
prayers will be answered.
"More things are wrought by-
Than this world dreams of.
If,  knowing God, they lift not hands
.of prayer.
Both for themselves and those   who
call thorn friends
For so the whole  round     earth    . is
every way,
Bound  by gold  chains about the feet
of God."
"We are culled (2) To penitence.
Arc there not individual and national sins. If these be, and there are, we
ought to repent. There is mercy with
God. If we confess our sins He Is
faithful and just to forgive us our
sins and to cleanse us Irom all un-
lighteousness." Thus may wc us a
Church militant "fight a good fight"
as well as the state militant.
In the Methodist church the morning meditation (based on Matt. 7,11
and James 5, 10) raised the question
whether prayer made any difference.
Illustrations individual and national
were given by Rev. Vi. Lashley Hall.
Prayer mates no difference in God
but in circumstances; does not alter
laws but alters us; puts us twhere
prayer is effectual i in accord with
the divine arbiter, in a condition of
innd and mood which makes possible
the change of events. Prayer makes
use of existing forces, like getting in
communication with the telephone,
and sets In operation new lorces of
personality. The goal iu view was a
pound and lasting peace in God'B own
titiii' and liod's own way.

Annual Meeting  Held—Apparatus Compared With Other
•j Cities—Forty One Calls
The annual meeting of the tire brigade No. 2 up town was held on Monday night with a full attendance present. After thc routine business the
I'vunts of the year were considered
and the brigade was seen to have
been called together 41 times since
the last annual meeting.
At some of the calls it looked as
though the tires would he serious but
the brigade was able by hard work
and quickness in getting to the scene
to hold the hres to only small blazes,
except for the big lire on McKenzie
avenue which had got well under way
before the brigade was called.
Comparisons were made with the
lighting apparatus of other cities
which shows Vernon and Kamloops
to have up-to-date auto trucks and
ladders and appliances with 150U feet
of hose on truck and J000 reserve on
the walls. Revelstoke has been getting along with a sleigh and wagon
und only infill feet ol hose; the brigade has not asked Ior more, as it
has tried to keep expenses down, but
as the city grows it was considered
that provision must be made for
more. The city council has been very
helpful and supplied the brigade with
the necessaries asked fer.
The speeches of the various officers
showed that general good feeling exists in the brigade. The .newly appointed officers Ior  1916 are:
Chief. Vi. A. Foote. .-	
Asst. Chief,  Roy Macdonald,
Capt. Hose, K. G. McRae.
Capt. Hook and Ladder, R. Squarebriggs.
Secretary, C. R. Macdonald.
.Asst.  Sect. H. Mulholland.

The issue is squarely jcUnod and wc
do no good by slurring things over.
Every man to the remotest bounds of
the earth—every nation, big and little—every socialist—every father nnd
mother—is concerned. • The issue is
whether, in view of possible contingencies, wc are to have an iron
collar fastened round our neck and
the life stamped out of us by the
irou bcel. Suppose iu deference to
certain suggestions you throw down
your arms—what theii? The alternative is the iron collar. Are we to
learn the lesson all over again? Is
Listory astray in its teachings? Or
can we count on God—who will
avenge His own elect?
This brim s us fCo the paramount
issue—religion. Let there be no mistake. In event of certain contingencies all that we have bean tuugbt ns
Christian is ruled out of court. Violence is exalted as religion. Now ws
know what militarism is—unmasked
culture by the sword with God left
out. That is the issue. Wc can no
longer make appeal to God—the God
wc have believed in—the God ol
truth and right, the God of eternal
jiistne', to whom wc could -tuke our
wrongs—the Godot heaven and
earth, the God and Fathi r of our
Lord Jesus Christ. Another God is
1 ut in His place—a loreign god, a
heathen god—a nod of violence, cruelty, perfidy, hate, a god of fruud and
force. A god who has no connection
with the heavenB or the earth except
as represented by the depraved wills
of mankind.
The issue is—Christianity is challenged—In Its efficacy and authority:
put aside as a back number, and in
its place a pseudo-religion set up, cul-
t ure based Oil the IWOrd, with Qod
left out; which either acknowledges
no Qod or B god alien tei the Chris

(Mr. As (iiith has asked the natton
Ior a lurther £22!),<IOO,000', iu addition
to £ll'0,(MIO,(l(X) already spent. This
money will largely go in the purchase ol manufactured goods, mnde
at home, in wages to workpeople, in
the pay of soldiers—pay largely spent
Ior their families at home—and in allowances to civilians Ior the housing
and payment of troops.)
Already the expenditure ol the war
funds bus had its effect on trade.
Business is better in certain parts of
England to-day than during the
'boom' period of 1913, Factories are
working day and night. Money in
these districts is abundant, Wages
are high, and there is employment
for all. A lew trades have been Injured. Chief among these is the cotton 'Industry Producers of luxuries
and extravagancies have been hit,
some ol them bit very badly. But
taking the country ns a whole trade
is much better than 'in the tirst weok
in August—the week before the war—
and each week it is growing better.
Apart from the increased demand
for the equipment of our armies, lor-
lign orders of a kind unknown before
are coming to us. The Russian government is spending largely here. One
firm alone bas received an order Irom
Russia for military motors to thc
value of about £260,000. France is
purchasing on the same scale. A
French order for hoots, given in
Northampton, was Ior one and a
half million pairs. Belgium is buying
largely here for ber army. From
youth America and Irom Australia,
from Canada and from China, there
come ^demands for goods recently obtained from Germany, in many cases
the demand cannot be met. We are
too busy. Trades that seemed likely
at first to sutler most are finding
that new activities ha\c sprung up
because of the war, largely .compensating them. Tbe motor trade is a
typical example.
Motor Trade Extensions.
The war largely killed the trade in
the more costly motor-cars. It greatly reduced the demand for passenger
cars of all kinds. The first economy
practised by mmy'was to 'cut oil'
their motoring. But a great demand
has arisen ior moror lorries, motor-
ambulances, motor-guncarriages, and
motor-omnibuses. The government
has not only commandeered many
thousands of heavy motor vehicles,
from the heavy lorries of the railways to the London omnibuses, but
it has plac;d orders with most of the
leading houses that can do this class
of work sufficient to keep them busy,
day and ni.-ht, for months ahead.
In addition to this traders all over
I the country, with their horses and
' motor-cars taken for the war, are
clamoring for fresh supplies. As a
rule they cannot get them. 'We are
working night and day to meet tbe
heavy demands of the War office,' is
the announcement of lirm utter linn
when apologizing for delay.

Kaiser Arrested His Mother
In these days when everything concerning the German emperor is ol
public interest, it may do no barm to
recall the article published in the
Americnn Magazine some three years
ago by Octave Mirabeau, in which, in
the course of an intimate study of
the German emperor, he told this
Bismarck never cared for the Emperor Frederick, who be thought
wished to change the order of things,
and as tor the empress be abominated her because of her English ideas
land referred to her as "thc stranger"
! He devoted himBeli to Ailing William
with the' appetite for power, taught
him to criticize every written and
spoken word of hiB father and to believe that the 'influence of his English mother was anti-national and
therefore dangerous. But Bismarck,
shrewd as he was, could not foresee
how far thie young man's love of
power would lead him.
Thfr relations between the Empress
Frederick and her son became at last
so bitter that William placed spies
abjout her—even in the bedroom of his
invalided father.
Through one of these spieB William
learned of the existence of a journal
which his father had kept for some
years. Frederick had a taste for writing and the fact that there was coldness betw?en him and his sou led
William to fear that this secret journal might contain some criticism of
his conduct. The fear of it haunted
him and he bent all his thoughts to
Obtaining  possession of 'it.
The Empress, however, was clever
enough to conceal the diary before
her husband's death. Eluding the surveillance of ber son, she sent the
papers to her mother. Queen Victoria,

or to her brother, then Prince of
Wales—I don't remember which.
Hardly had his father drawu his
last breath when William, over the
dead body, performed Wis first official
It was to demand of his widowed
m tier the journal, which he termed
i     memorial."
Tho Empress leigned ignorance.
William insisted. He spoke as master, giving his mother the order to
obey. She persisted in declaring that
she knew nothing of the paper. Her
son menaced her hrut.n"v with his
wrath. To his dry eyes her tears
were ooly stratagem. The more she
resisted the more determined he became. It seemed to him thut the importance of the papers might be measured by the stubbornness of her opposition, besides which he was enraged that iu the first hour of the
reign he had so feverishly awaited
some one dured thwart him.
Was not his mother merely a princess of the house of which he was the
head? Was she not merely lady colonel of one of his regiments? WaB she
not his subject? Anger drove him
stark mad.
"Well," he commanded, purple with
wrath, "you will remain under close
arrest until you have obeyed  me."
Bismurck, arriving at Potsdam two
hours after this, found the palace Bur-
rounded by squadrons of armed cavalry.
The emperor whom he found still
excited, told the old chancellor how
he had met the disobedience of his
"And she need not expect pity or
consideration until she has obeyed
ine!" he declared. "You understana
that, Mr. Chuncellor? Until she has
obeyed me!"
The pupil had gone much too far.
Bismarck saw at once that the buffoonery continued might mar the
whole of William's reign. Later in
'life, he said, he used to wonder how-
he kept from laughing in h'is sovereign's face.
What he ditl was to receive William's news with deferential silence,
and later, when the emperor was
calmer, bIiow him that his course was
sure to meet with general disapproval. There was a way, he thought, of
proceeding much more rigorously and
at the. same time efficaciously. Why
not rather cut down tbe income of
the empress? Suspend her appanages?
"I know her majesty," said the
good Bismarck. "She has pride. Forced arrest she can hrave out, accepting it as a sort of martyrdom; but
the money, Sire, the money!—who
can resist money?"
Further he laid tactful stress upon
the probable representations of England. "Is it really the moment, Sire.'
The kaiser, becoming appeased, listened to Bismarck's counsel. The arrest of the empress was removed.
The officers led their cavalry hack to
quarters and William turned his attention to the details of his father's
obsequies, which lie wished to fie most
Tbe struggle "between the dowager
empress and her son lasted for several months, six at least. Finally the
emperor obtained the manuscript aud
the empress her money.
Was it not a worthy debut, I ask
you, for an emperor who, despairin?;
of ever attaining the glory of having
made a Bismarck, dlscerae I that the
glory of daring to dismiss him was
the only thing that could be thrown
into the balance*'

Prayer was oflered morning and
evening by several laymen Messrs.
Flockhart, Gobel, Walter B«ws, C.B.
Hume and the week ol prayer is to
be observed. The choir rendered an
anthem; besidcB which there was a
ladies chorus and a solo.
In the Presbyterian church the day
of humble prayer and intercession
was observed at both services. The
prayers, hymns, readingB and addresses, all centred around the great
war, and expressed the desire that it
might soon end, and that a favorable and permanent peace might be
established. The morning text was
Heb. 13: 18, 19, "Pray or us, for we
arc persuaded that we have a good
conscience, desiring to live honorably
in all things." Rev. J. W. Stevenson
Baid that this national call to prayer was neither a sign ol weakness nor
fear. After live monthB of war the
position of the allies was stronger
than it had ever heen before. It was
stronger than it hnd ever been before. It was rather a sign of assurance nnd faith—assurance of thc
righteousness of our cause and faith
in God to vindicate the right. If we
did not believe that the war was a
righteous  war,  we  dared      not     ask
God to bless our arms. This was not
ii war for territory, but a war in defence of rights and liberties and to
fulfil pledges solemnly given. At the
bottom it was a great moral and
religiouB question. Mr. Stevenson
then quoted the Bishop of London
who had sa'id, "I believe that we
may pray for victory. Awful as thiB
wur is, it has drawn out prayer in
the most extraordinary way. In order to have the true benefit and power of prayer we must retuliBe that
there is an answer promised, and we
must be quite clear what we shall
pray for." He then went on to say
that the Bible taught that God
would do as a result of prayer what
otherwise He would not, and could
not do. It was one of the causes
through which results were attained
in  this world.
The speaker then applied the words
of the text and said the men in the
trenches had a right to our prayers,
ior they have a good conscience. These
men stand between us and danger,
and they have unselfishly given up
all for the cause of liberty and
peace. We can do much for the defenders of our country but not the
least is to pray for them, that their
noble efforts may be crowned with a
speedy victory. This call to pray was
not a call to the churches only,   but
to all the people. It was to be a day
of humble prayer, in which we should
confers personal and national sins.
When we humbled ourselves before
God and acknowledged our own insufficiency, then God would hear and
answer our prayers.
In the evening Mr. Stevenson took
as his text, Nehemiah 4: 14, "Be not
ye afraid of them; remember the
Lord, who is great and terrible, and
fight for your brethern, your sons
and your daughters, your wives and
your houses." He said among other
things that Nehemiah who was a
great soldier and great statesman
was also a great man of God. He
made every preparation, did all that
human skill could devise, then made
his prayer to God, acknowledging
Him as the ultimate source of victory. Cromwell and Bruce were given
as examples of generals who led
praying armies to victory. The
righteousness of theBritish cause in
this war had been established, and
the call of duty was very clear, and
men, might well pray Ior success.
The nation had sought peace up to
the last moment, but the time cume
when we had to choose between peace
and righteousness. We might have
had peace, a selfish, enwardly peace,
but if we had chOBen that we should
have been the scorn of the world.  We
entered the war because we had
plighted our word to defend a weak
nation, and to maintain liberty and
justice. If God Is with us as we believe He ia, our success depends on
Him. Nothing must be neglected that
foresight and sacrifice can supply,
but at, the same time we realize
that victory does not always go to
the biggest battalions. The empire
haB gone into the war not in boastful spirit, but with the sense of God's
approval and protection, and
throughout the nation there is the
calm assurance that, "if God be for
us, who can be againBt us."
The speaker concluded by asking
the congregation not to overlook the
lessons God would teach ub by this
war. The prophets always thought
that national calamity waB tho
punishment of sin, and we may be
sure there is some connection between our sin, individual, social and
natUonal, and all that haB happened.
We need to repent and pray for a
new sense of duty, to God and to
men. There are not lacking signs of
a new and clearer conception of duty.
We want to stnnd with God for the
right nnd to walk in thc path of duty.
"Not    once     or     twice    in our  fair
island story.
The path of duty    was the    way    to
•  gjlory."
I The following injunction was rraeT.
in St. Francis church by Rev. J.eCU

War, indeed, is always deplorable,
and cannot be entered into without

Some Rules Laid Down in Regard to Neutrality Described
—Summary of Regulations
An interesting; article concerning
the attitude of Holland in the present crisis and also giving the reasons for the disarmament of the
naval brigade in that country appears in Tit-Bits. It reads as follows:
"Will Holland, in spite of any pressure which may be brought to beur
upon her by Germany, maintain her
neutrality in the present crisis? It
i6 a question which is exercising the
minds of not a few people at the
present time, and Holland's decision
will undoubtedly have considerable
hearing on the result of the great
struggle. In the meantime, it is not
uninteresting to note some of the
rules laid down by international law
in regard to neutrality.
"The main principle of the doctrine
of neutrality is that, while other nations are at war, those which are at
peace are able, without molestation,
to pursue their ordinary business.
Neutral countries, however, must
show absolute impartiality in their
dealings with the combatants, while
the latter must scrupulously respect
the neutral position of countries at
peace. Germany's great crime is that
she, in defiance of all international
law, ignored the neutrality of Belgium, because that country stood In
the way of swift invasion of France.
And there are not a few people wlio
think that if it suits her purpose to
do so Germany will similarly ignore
thc neutrality of Holland.
Ai neutral state is not permitted to
give armed assistance to either
belligerent, even though such aid may
have been promised before the war.
Neither must she lend money to either side, guarantee a loan, or allow
the passage of belligerent troops
through her territory. The reason
why thousands of our Naval Brigade
and Belgian troops are at present interned in Holland is because a neutral State is bound to intern a>nd disarm any troops which attempt to
traverse her country. Should a neutral State not observe this law and
assist .my hi-lligirent force which
may be driven into her country, the
enemy is entitled to treat such deviation    is a just  cause for  war.
On the other hand a belligerent is
not permitted to carry on hostilities
in neutral territory, nor use neutral
harbors for th? purpose of fitting out
expeditions against his enemy.
Tin- ships of neutral nations are
entitled to go about their business
in the usual way, provided they are
not carrying contraband of war, but
they arc liable tee he searched by
belligerent ships. Belligerent ships
may noi tl  .1 out in neutral w it

Ottawa Free Press: Sir George Fos-
] ter is the fortunate possessor of a
logical mind. And it waB a logical
sensible "war talk" that he gave the
t udience in the First Baptist church,
tie expressed the war spirit in a manner that must appeal to all. "We do
cot get down to the right plane until
the war draws something from us
either in blood from our veins or
from our pockets." he said. Are all
of us "down to the right plane"? Is
the war taking something from us?
Is the Btate getting its contribution
from us for carrying on the war—not
a forced contribution in thc way of
additional excise tax on something
we buy, but a voluntary contribution?
Those of us who for personal or family reasons cannot give of services
for the battlefield, havc the more reason to think of this. The duty thut
we can do at home is one which calls
for less sacrifice. The sacrifice can be
at most nothing more than a share
of our possessions. It is little to give
to the state we profess to hold so
dearly. It is talks like that of Sir
George Foster which are of some uhc
in this war time. Not speeches about
the horror of wur and the desirability of peare. We are at war. Let
everyone understand his position in
connection with it, his duty towards
Toronto Star: It was a sensational
discovery that the police made when
they arrested and searched 75 men
who applied for and received a charity meal at the House of Industry
yesterday. Most of them had money
bidden all over them; some a little,
but most of them a great deal of it.
The total amount found on the 75 of
them was about 94000, yet they professed to be out of work, penniless, in
need of free food and other civic aid.
If the police were to arrest and
search the membera of the Albany
club or the National club at the
lunch hour, or the guests in the dining room of one of our leading hotels
they would probably not uncover
nearly as much money as these men
at the House of Industry had on
them. It must not be supposed, however, thut these men are types of the
unemployed. They arc not. They are
foreigners who, biaving worked
through the summer ami saved their
money, have no wish to part with
any more of it than they can help.
They feel it no disgrace to accept free
meals If they can get them, or cheap
meals and lodging for which they do
n little work. Our own people will
not seek aid of that kind unless they
must. No doubt these foreigners want
work and cannot get it, but their arrest and the result of it shows in a
sensational way that it is necessary
for the authorities to use some discrimination to see that men who are
not in want do not prnctice imposture on relief funds meant to succor
those—Kind tbey nre numerous— who
are in dire need.
It  is reported that the Trail smel-
jter  basin  stock     a    million  dollurs
worth of silver.

also Wolf von Schierbrand: "He poB-
