"Cnnada is moving with dignity
and strength," declares the Liverpool
Courier, upropos of Premier Borden's
statement regarding the military resources of the Dominion. The Courier
regards the problem of Canada as
not the raising of men, but the organizing of recruits into efficient soldiers. "The part Canada is taking
will make Germany realize us never

flag." the ('mirier adds.
Reports which hnve tfltered through
the Swiss Tyrol front'ier from Innis-
hruck, Austria, are to tbe effect that
one of the principal reasons why the
Servian army took 20."00 prisoners
after their vistory over the Austrians
was that the Slav element in tbe

FROM THE SANCTUMS
HAPPY NEW YEAR	
At a time such as the present the
lamiliar wish "A Happy New Year,"
may seem almost a mockery. It is
a time of stress. Thc empire is engaged in a vast and snngu'inary war
in which lives in thousands are being
sacrificed and treasure ln millions
dlBBlpat&d, Here in Canada progrcBS
has been checked, prosperity diminished.
But there is a bright side to the
picture. There can be no regret. Tbe
war has been undertaken on the part
of the empire for a noble cause, to
fulfil a solemn obligation, to protect from oppression B neighbor who
trusted it. No price can be too Wigh
when honor is at   stake.
Canada is doing its duty. It has
evaded no obligation. It is giving its
men and treasure to the service of
the empire. It is united and steadfast in its purpose.
The war is a righteous war nnd,
more, it is heing carried to a successful conclusion. The Qerman at
tack is being rolled back. Victory is
with the allies and the yenr now be
ginning may he expected to si" a
triumphant peace proclaimed. There
il no room for dismay, much ground
f..r satisfaction, bright hope for the
future.
With the war at an end material
prosperity will return a-id progr ss
Will be with accelerated step. Can
;.da's resources are undiminished,
I'ritish Columbia's vast natural
th still awaits development, Revelstoke's advantages remain. Demand for the product ul the forests
will be keener than belore. mines
.'■-.'A be ransacked for their hidden
wealth, tourists, driven from other
ts, will return In greater numbers.
Th»  coming   year    holds  out bright

BONDS ABE STRONG
The Yorkshire Observer: We can all
remember what apprehension wns expressed only a year or two ago lest
Canada should throw In her lot with
the United Stutcs. Yet this is thc
country which within six weeks of the
I outbreak of war raised 85,000 men,
' not for thc defence of her own shores
but for the service of the empire. She
has since raised as many more, and
is prepared to furnish ten times as
many, if need he. Those human bonds
ure the strongest which appear the
most fragile, because they allow to
each unit the greatest possible freedom of individual movement.

TOO OLD TO DANCE
[Edmonton Journal: A decision has.
been given by a New York court that
has far-reaching interest. A man, 39
years of age, became afflicted With
the tango craze, and invariably Bpent
the evening of pay dav at a public
dunce, which led to his wife taking
legal proceedings. The majority ol
the court held that no man over 35
should indulge in such frivolities,
and henceforth on pay day he wlfll
have to report to a probation otticer.
The finding may prove useful to
those who have father- and husbands
who in their terpslch rean nctivitt-es
have been disregarding the unwelcome fact that they ..re no longer
young. It may also help some who
have been nrired to le.rn the new

Credit Restricted by
Vernon Merchants
The Vernon Retail Merchants association has pasBed thc following; resolution:
"Resolved, that owing to present
financial conditions, and the curtailing ol purchasing terms by the wholesalers, it is deemed advisable to havc
set terms ol credit ol 30 days, restricting same with u view to giving
our customers better values when
possible, and thereby prevent much
ol our customers' cash being sent to
catalogue houses, and we believe thiB
Btep to be in the best interests ol the
i customers and dealer Ior the lollowing reasons:
"1st.   The merchants will be   in   a
position to  meet their obligations.
!    "2nd.   The elimination ol  bank ov-
; or-drafts.
"iird. The buying Ior cash and securing discounts.
"4th. The reduction ol overhead
expenses.
"5th. The selling ol goods at a
I closer margin ol protit to the customer.
"In view of the mutual benefits resulting from a co-operation of the
merchants of this city to secure a
more precautionary credit system, we
: beg to advise you that on and after
January 1st, 1915, all accounts will
he limited to u cash or strictly 30
days basis. That is to say, all purchases during the month must be
paid for not later than the 5th of the
month following."

pleasant evenings ever spent at the

days in town guests at the Revelstoke hotel. They came to RevelBtoke

too slow lor anything ot this sort,
they proceeded to Banff, where they
expect at least, some aki-ing. It
seems such a pity with the advantages of the mountain sides, river, etc,

toboggan slide would be a boon.

present on a visit to her father.
Two splendid picture shows were
put on at the Empress theatre on
Christmas day, matinee, and evening
