Article From Pen of Sir Richard
McBride in the Monetary
Times Annual
The Monetary Times Annual, just
to hand, contains the lollowing article from the pen of Sir Richard McBride:
From the economic point of view,
and I presume that it is the economic side which The Monetary Times
Annual is most interested, I conditions
have greatly changed since I, among
others, was privileged a year ago to
concribute to that valuable journal.
No ono a year ago would have believed that wc now would be in the
throes of the greatest war the world
has ever seen or is likely ever to see
again.
But conditions—I am now Bpeaking
for British Columbia and I feel certain that what is true of British Columbia is true of the whole of Canada—are not nearly so unfavorable
as they might naturally be expected
to be in such circumstances. In fact,
from all outward appearance no one
would judge that we ware in a state
of war at all. Business, though, of
course, reduced in volume, is gc«ng
ou very much ns usual or as it
would have heen in any event, bee-
cause when tin- war bro'--e out we in
British Columbia, as elsewhere in
Canada, were Buffering from the
slackness of the money market. The
rroblem of the unemployed during
the coming winter is the most serious we have to deal with.
More Confident
The  thing  that mainly  affects   the
situation  is not so much the actual
I effect upon business as upon the mental condition of the people,  and     I
think that if an actual physical test
could  be  made  in     that regard     it
would be found that instead   of   the
war having had a     depressing  effect
the people are more optimistic   more
confident   of the     future     than  they
were before the  1th of August     laBt.
There hus been and there will be considerable falling off in business,   distress from lack of employment    and
j financial  losses,   but  the    mere   fact
t that we are in conflict with Germany
land Austria in what     someone,    has
I called a great holy war,  and helping
| to  bear  the burden     of  the  empire,
causes our people—in so far as   they
have  to  suffer—to     suffer  cheerfully.
| They cannot  hut compare their   own
j position  with the     position of those
i in the widespread scene of carnage in
the very heart of Europe.
Looking at the war situation as it
inflects our own country from the
j f-tandpoint of the benefits to be de
rived, as well as from that of undoubted great erils, there is much
| to encouraee us.
The Mining industry.
The mining industry has been seriously affected, because bo much of
our mineral products finds a market
in Germany. That we must abide until the war is over and market conditions read-just themselves as they
certainly will. We shall not only find
new markets, but we shall develop
new mineral produces—new from ^
local point of view—out of our varied mineral  resources.
The lumber business is suffering
rather serious depression, but that is
* so much Incidental to the war as
'-.mses which previously had existed. We have depended in time of
prosperity perhaps too much on lo-
I ii consumption and nu markets in
the Middle West. Now that huilding
operations have Blowed down everywhere and thc situation has also been
affected in the Middle Went, by Bhort-
•ipc of crops, we feel the <ieed of a
foreign export market, which, if not
altogether neglected, has been allowed to fall too much into the posneH
siom of the mill owners of Washing
and Oregon States, who have
cultivated it. We find now that then-
are large markets lor Hritich Columbia timber in Australia, New Zealand
South Africa, India, Gn-at Britain
and *ven in the Atlantic .States,
npr-rssity to exploit new markets has
already stimulated prior's In that
direction and one effect of the war
will emphatically be to draw clo-aer
trade relatl .nB among th" Dominions
of the empire and to suggest new
i industries and new means of ,ef
ing them, as well as. building up a
trade MMntiAl te. OUT own Imperial
exlltence on self sustaining lines.
The  Fishing  Industry.
The fishing .nduHt.ry is rtn exceedingly sound and prosperous lines, and
it, goes on and '/nil go on unaffected
by the war. -SXCfpt in so far as pro-
duction will he stimulated by the in
e-ri'iised demands for food. As an Instance of how this mny be effeet<Sd
the provincial government sent over
l,00f>,000 pounds of "pinks'* nn a gift
I to the Homeland for food purposes
in relief work, "finks," lei me suy,
is the term for salmon canned from
what aro known as humpbacks.   For
merly this vartety, although in immense quantities in all our coast
waters, was not utilized at all; but
it has been discovered that when
taken in salt water the food value of
cbe product is quite equal to that of
the standard of canned salmon of
sockeyes. For several reasons, "pinks'
can be canned much more cheaply
than any other of the brands of salmon and, therefore, we confidently expect an important demand for
what the prov'ince in enabled to supply in immense quantities. Scientific
analysis shows us that canned salmon Is highest in percentage of
nutritive qualities among all standard foods, and we can, therefore,
readily judge of the pconomlc, value
of this great resource of the province.
Agricultural  Production
Agricultural production is another
phase of industry that is likely to
receive a vital impetus. Wc do not
now produce equal to our requirements for several reasons: (I) Our
population has increased so rapidly
as almost to keep ahead of increased
production. (2) Many of our important agricultural areas could not be
developed until roads and railways
were built to supply transportation.
(3! The tendency in time of plenty
rnd prosperity to concentrate in the
cities. Now that we arc face to face
with conditions of war, scarcity and
high cost of living, the movement of
hack to the land has become very
strong, and next and following years
we may look for astonishing increases in local production of all kinds.
The government is prepared to back
up th'is movement in every possible
way.
There are several large industries
that will develop largely and very
rapidly. I refer particularly to shipbuilding and shipping and to the
mnlnufacture of pulp and paper. These
have already started on a good footing, and to them we expect soon to
see added iron and steel manufacture.
One of the most significant things
in connection with the present situation in British Columbia is the fact
that thc immense program of railway construction is beUng carried on
practically without any let-up. There
are live large railway corporations
that are and have been carrying on
extensively and whose operations in
construction, when complete as at
present outlined, wi'll have added
about 4,500 milage of track in ten
years. The Grand Trunk Pacific is
now practically completed through
Brit'ish Columbia and is running
trains. The Canadian Pacific has
been spending large sumB in new
lines, double tracking and tunneling.
The lines for whose construction the
provincial government policy is responsible are thc Canadian Northern
Pacific, thc Pacific Great Eastern, to
connect up the coast with the Peace
river district, and the Kettle Valley
railway. There is, of course, too, thc
Great Northern railway, which is
lushing through to Vancouver
through ths southern interior by way
of Hope, and will, for several distance's, at least, utilize existing
lines. In twelve months from now
nearly all thiB new mileage will lie
in operation, and I can scarcely realize what 'it will mean in the way of
development when these new avenueB
of communication and thc areas tributary to them are opened to British Columbia and to Canada. From
a financial point of view, it Was
most fortunate that the money nec-
essary [or these railways wus obtained before the present situation
developed, or otherwise, with the inevitable readjustment of finances in
Kurope after the war.began, it would
have heen years hefore it would have
been available for investment in British Columbia, as the people who
have financed this railway construction   are  now  substantially  interested
In tbe province and will continue to
do their utmost to further the success of the railways nnd the country
through   which  they run.

End of Great War \
Fully a Year Ahead
Consensus of Opinion About the Lobby of the House of
Commons—Turkey's Part in the Conflict Has Not
Fulfilled German Expectations.
At the time the House of Commons adjourned in November the prevalent opinion in the lobby more or
less informed was thut June might
see a termination of the war with,
of course, decisive victory for the allies. This view was taken admittedly
without sufficient data to give it security, because any prophecy in a
conflict of th'iB eaort when affairs have
not fully developed must of necessity
depend largely upon upon elastic
speculation. Only a few of the elements are calculable and they i depend
to a large extent upon others for the
whole view of the situation. Since
that time, as I have indicated wee*
by week, cheering progress has be-m
made, but as events are steadily unfolding themselves I am bound to
confess that the outlook doeB not encourage the opinion that the middle
of the year will ace us enabled to
write "finis" upon this terrible volume. There are half a dozen contingencies, any one of which thrown into the consideration should accelerate the victorious ending but wise
men, while they will find gratifica-
tton that there are so many possibilities, and will sec in the half-dozen
a likelihood that one or other will
come oft, do not reckon upon contingencies. That is why with the fuller
information that is now available I
have inclined to shift the date to
the end of the year. It is just as
wefl to look things fully in the face.
The Germans havc not yet got beyond the illusion that ultimately
success will come to them. Slowly
their newspapers are recognizing thc
failure of cherished hopes and confidences. No longer is the idea of the
occupation of Paris or CallaiB seriously entertained. The confidence
that Warsaw would be captured has
yielded to a realization of the tremendous tenacity of the Russian forces and the potency of General Winter. Soon the Germans may "get a
further light upon the resources and
capability of the Russians, whom all
through they have held far. too cheaply. The glory ol the Turkish traditions is at th» time of writing being
wiped out. No one can live upon a
reputation, and, although the Turks
have once more shown valor, their
■generalship, even with the assistance
of German officers, has heen inefficient and their organization inferior
to that of the armies of the Ozar.
Some of my friends are inclined to
think that the Turks would have
done better without the German
schooling and co-operation. The 'old
and the new ways do not harmonize
vcry we'll. Inside thc Turkish government there has been a smouldering
fire of discontent and irritation at
the whole business. Nobody cares to
he used as the monkey uses the kitten in an endeavor to pull chestnuts
out of a hot grate, and the Turks
are beginning to find all too late
that the Germans have been using
them bb a cat's-paw.
Some Possibilities of Acceleration
Lord Kitchener, in his speech in
the House of Lords, laid emphasis
upon thc innrvelour achievements of
the Servian army, whose daring and
skfll will go down in history in
bringing about one of the most brtl-
linnt, not to say astounding, perfer-
manccs in the whole war, and there
arc signs that some of the other
small States of Eastern Europe may
rally to the same good cause and
show what more can he done in the
same direction hy little hardy races
who havo fighting in their blood and
cannot bc dnunted by nny consideration  of  mere  numbers against   them.
Italy is now fnlly prepared for war,
and whilo it is true that the 'mi>.tch
may never be applied to the fuse, yet
we know what the sentiments of the
majority^ of the Italian people are
and that some hot-headed action on
the part of the Germans, or some
folly on the part of the AuBtrians,
may bring them quickly into the
arena. That extraordinary business—
the detention of Cardinal Mercier
within his palace because in his pastoral letter he told the people of
Belgium that the Germans had no
lawful right to possess Belgian territory—has caused a wave of indignation amongst Catholics all over
the world and must, as it slowly filters through to Austria create perturbation there. A generation or two
ago it woirtd have brought the
Spanish at once into the field, but
its importance nowadays in damaging German influence will probably
be indirect. Then, to, there are the
evidences of the steadily increasing
scarcity of supplies of ammunition
which is essential to the Germans to
pursue the war. I have never pressed
that point as suggesting that it will
lead to an early breakdown by the
enemy, but the way in which every
copper article, large ar insignificant,
is being seized by the military in
Belgium to be melted down shows
that the Germans at least have prions apprehensions on  this subject.
Neither do I place the reports of
shortage of food as indicative of a
serious crisis in this reBpect, but it
is pretty certain that the insistence
on tho admixture of rye and potato
with wheat flour also shows a genuine anxiety in this connection and
the removal of nearly all the able
bodied men from the agricultural
districts portends a considerable reduction in the yield of the harvest
of the present year.
Lord  Kitchener  and  Berlin  Prophets
I had the opportunity of hearing
in thc House of Lords this week
Lord Kitchener's studiously moderate
statement regarding the progress of
the allies so far. The contrast between his caution in presenting a record and the eagerness of the Germans to proclaim victories on paper
—as for instance in the case of General von Hinderberg's performances
on the Russian frontier, must strike
every one. Lord Kitchener was' quite
at his best in this latest speech. It
waa the utterance of a commander
who is leaving nothing to chance,
and those who know how extensive
and thoroughgoing are the preparations we have been making during the
last three months as the plan of
campaign has been gradually evolved
will have a still deeper confidence in
what he said. He kept very carefully
to his notes, but he spoke out clearly and it was quit; evident that the
hesitancy he has felt in the unaccustomed role of a ministerial orator is
passing. I noticed, for instance, how
.quickly he took up enquiries by Lord
Curzon, answering them across the
table with a courteous directness
t'css that showed he is at ease over
the whole situation despite the tremendous weight of his responsibility.
There are two minor matters—minor,
that is, when one reflects on the immensity of the whole problem—which
have especially gratified K. of K.
during the Inst few weeks. One of
these is the quickness 'with which the
rebellion in South Africa hns been
stamped out; the other is thc smooth
ness with which the change of Caliphs has heen made in Egypt, with
the result that instead of having to
watch  a  seditious     head  of Govern-
Try a Mail-Herald
"Want Ad
n
and Get RESULTS
ment there we have the security of
a ruler under our protectorate who
appreciates the British flag and has a
loyal population under him. Liord
Kitchener knows South Africa and he
knows Egypt still better. He knew
more than the public did of the possibilities of the trouble in each ot
these territories and it is a matter
of great satisfaction to a man of his
breadth af mind and character when
he has to deal with the large muin
problem to have the smaller problems that might at any time have
become very troublesome cleared up
for him. Botha admittedly has a trying task in dealing with the Germans
on their own contiguous territory,
but K. of K. said with unaffected
compliment that what General Botha
had done gave great confidence aB to
any future operations that he may
have to undertake. Lord Curzon's
speech had a ring of eloquence notwithstanding that it was deliberately
restrained in character and had none
of the dashes of party coloring that
generally gives the zest to controversy in each of the Houses of Parliament. It was rather curious to
find a man so scholarly and capable
dropping into a couple of even small
errors of speech, but that sort of
thinj; happens even with the most
polished orators. In speaking of his
confidence in the army and raising a
question as to the supply of reinforcements he spoke of the "overwhelming" task before us. What he
meant was, of course, "stupendous."
I could not but reflect what play
might have been made on the word
apart from its plain context if it
were literally translated for Germa,,
readers, but the sense of what he
said left no doubt as to his assurance of ultimate victory. The other
slip was the use of firstly for first
—a trival hut odd error for one who
is something of a pedant in literature.
Trade and the War.
This has been the week of thc Winter stock-taking sales, and the big
stores and drapery establishments
have been offering bargains at what
are nearer real bargain prices than
is usually the fact. The shopkeepers
are handicapped by the darkening of
tbe streets after sunset, which really
closes down active shopping soon after 5, but for all that there has ueen
brisk business done, and it does not
appear as if the people in the Old
Country are short of money. As I
have pointed out hefore, however, a
very genuine economy is being exercised all round and the vendors of
luxuries have to lament that there is
very little doing in their lines. The
West End tailors would have suffered
badly but for the fart that there has
been such a heavy demand for khaki
uniforms for officers. The modistes
have undoubtedly felt the war very
much. So havc the jewelers, the antique furniture sellers and other classes
of tradesmen who deal in things that
are not necessary, at any rate in
these times, but, thanks to our navy,
cur trade has b3?n maintained to a
magnificent degree. The industries ot
the country are mostly busy and
many of them are at high pressure.
The allowances to the dependents of
soldiers and sailors lead to a steady
flow of money, and, though the cost
of living hns gone up, the increase
all round is said to be not more
than IU per cent.
The New Year Honors.
Much interest is taken in the New
Year honors for Canadians. It is only fitting that the Hon. C. H. Per-
ley, acting high commissioner, should
be knighted, as Canada hus played
so prominent a part in the offerings
of the empire to the motherland. Sir
George Perley is president of the
Canadian War Contingent association
and has represented Canada at numerous gatherings und meetings of
organizations connected with war activities. Lady Perley, who wus so
popular as Miss Milly White, of Ottawa, ably supports her huBband in
bis public life, and is chairman of
the Ladies' Committee of the War
Contingent association, which is do

A CIVIC MUSEUM
The establishment of a muscuru
containing samples of the ores, timber, flora, fauna and other characteristics and curiosities of the Revelstoke district would be interesting
an-l instructive and would serve a
useful purpose. Thc beginning of such
an institution need not be on an
elaborate scale and might be accomplished without great effort. Once
started the museum would steadi'ly
grow and, its value established, proper accommodation would bc
assured.
Probably neither the city council
ror the bourd of trade is in a position to provide the necessary accommodation, but under the auspices of
the school board it might be possible
to form at one of the schools the
nucleus of a collection. Here might
be gathered samples of ore which are
almost diily brought to the city by
prospectors from all districts tributary to Revelstoke, examples of
the rtora of the country, collected
possibly in great part by the school
children, specimens of animals and
birds indigeneous to the district, examples of the woods produced, and
many of the relics of a past genern-
tian now in the hands of individuals
who would be glad to contribute
them to a civic museum.
The collection of ores would be
particularly valuable in displaying to
visitors the varied extent of the
mineral resources of the Revelstoke
district, while much might be learned from the collection and study ol
other specimens of the district's resources. There are now in the hainds
of private citiz.ns Indian totem poles
curious examples of Indian work,
muskets carried by the British en
gineers in building the, country's first
roads, hand made axes and other
cariosities forming a connecting   link

The subject  is one to  which  we have

educational     value  of   the  study      is

The correspondent of the Cologne
Gazette at Sofia, Bul'garia, declares
that the loading circles 'in Bulgaria,
do not share in the belief that there
is to be an immediate extension of
the war in the Balkans. All decisions
it is said, depend on the result of thu
great battles now progressing. The
Gazette's correspondent states that
Romania intends to increase tin-
Btrength of her army at the end of
January, but that Bulgaria has not
yet  decided  to mobilize  her  reserves.
Miss Sophia Qhee, known to tho
1 olice as the opium queen, was arrested in her stateroom on thc steamer Philadelphia when the vessel
docked in New York, last week,
charged with being the agent for a
band of opium smugglers that has

autnorities were prepared to prove
that Miss Ghee is responsible for the
distribution of $25,000 worth of
opium throughout the United States.

Through the vigilance of the ministers of finance and commerce in
, Rome, a vast Austro-German conspiracy has boon unmasked, with
ramifications throughout Italy, particularly in Naples, Genoa, Florence
and Milan, its purpose heing to corner and smuggle contraband food-
stulls, footwear, blankets and material for clothing from some small
port in thc Adriatic by means of
Austrian steamers and sailing vessels. Ono of the principal firms in-
l volved ia a German house, with its
, chief establishment at Bergamo.
In a recent English billiard match
of 30O0 up with Walter OBborne at
Nuneacon, England, George Gray
made a break of 105-1, which constitutes a world's record with ivory
balls. The previous best with ivories
was 97G (96!* ofl the red), also made
by Gray in September last, whfle
tbe best all-round break with ivory
balls is Stevenson's 919, comoiled in
London in October, 1913. Gray conceded Osborne, who is former champion of the Midlands, 100 start, and
I laying in remarkable form ran out
a winner by 1121 points.
SAMPLES OF
OREWANTED
North-west Mining Convention
in Spokane Next Month-
Large Ore Exhibit
The prime object of the annual
Northwest Mining convention, which
will be held in Spokane from Feb.
22 to 27, will be to stimuHate the
industry as well as to bring together
in a social, educational and business
way the miner, prospector, property
owner, engineer and capitalist, according to H. H. Shallenberger of
Spokane.
One of the big features of the convention this year and one in which
Mr. Shallenberger is particularly interested, will bc an ore exhibit Irom
as many mines of tbe mining districts of the northwest as samples
can bc obtained from. In this connection Mr. Shallenberger hus sent
out from his oilice over 1000 letters
to mining men, including both mine
owners and prospectors, inviting
them to send samples from the proprietors in which they ure interested,
accompanied by a complete and accurate description of their properties, giving assay values, size ot
ledges, location, number of claims,
etc, and in addition any maps, plans
or photos that may  be obtainable.
These samples are to be placed on
exhibition in Spokane, nnd, according to Mr. Shallenberger, they may
be left there as a portion of a permanent exhibit or will be returned
at tho desire of the owner. The exhibit will be one of the big features
of the conveution this year aad With
every detail in connection with tho
properties from which the samples
come available for immediate examination on the part of those who
view the exhibit it is expected that
they will be the source of interesting
considerable capital in mining properties and mining districts which
might otherwise be overlooked by
i capitalists of whom, he states, there
are many at present looking around
quietly for sound mining investments
The owner's name and address will
he in a conspicuous place with the
exhibit and details concerning it and
in this way capitalists will be given
lia and had a very disappointing experience. But there was never a more
hopeful  captain than  Jones when he
took out the English team in 1907.
A Finished Fielder
English cricket has not produced ' a
finer fieldsman than Jones, who
created the position of what has
come to bo known as "silly third
man" and in which, his daring, he
made some sensational catches. But
he could field anywhere, close in or
out in the long field, and the catch
he made at Brimingham in 1909,
when he dismissed Noble, tho Australian captain, was extraordinary.
"Jonah," as he was called, perhaps
to emphasise his buoyant spirit, was
fielding at forward short leg, close
up to the batsman. Hirst, the bowler, sent down a loose ball,, which
Noble hit hard and then started to
run. The spectators and English
players, if one may say so, looked
for the ball on the leg boundary, and
when they did not see it, were surprised.
What  Happened Through   Jones
The only one who knew whut had
really happened was JonoB, who, as
bc told the writer afterwards, moved
in a yard or bo as he saw thc Australian captain shaping lor a stroke
and took the ball ankle high with
his left hand. Perhaps the most astounded man of all was the Australian captain, who afterwards whb
generous enough to say that it was
the finest catch he had ever Been. In
bis younger days, Jones was also
a fine Rugby footballer. Ho never
played for England, but he was several times a "probable." Then, when
his playing days were over, he became a referee, and the splendid way
in which he interpreted the spirit of
the game won for him great populur-
ity amongst the men who "hold the
whistle."
TO HIS SCHOOLMATES

The attention of the postal authorities has been called to the fact that,
a number of parcels have lately been
received at Dawson, Yukon, in a
damaged condition. As it is unavoidable that parcelB conveyed from
White Horse to Dawson over thc
winter routj should bc subjected to
a great deal of handling they need
to bc strongly and securely packed
for protection against breakage and
postmasters are instructed to take
every opportunity of explaining thi3
to thc senders of parcels.

After the meeting the following
statement wus given out by the secretary  of  the  association:
"After due consideration thc Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' association has deemed it advisable for the
welfare of the lumber industry t'o
send to parliament representatives
who have a knowledge ol the adverse
conditions under which thc lumber industry has been laboring during the
past few years. Tho association is
not taking this course with a view
of entering thc political areua but
feels that the lumber industry, the
largest and most important in the
province and consequently supplying
a large proportion of the population
in thc interior of British Columbia
with a Diving, is not getting the consideration due to it."
Decides Military Training
Should be Enforced
A very distressing accident says
thc Salmon Arm Observer, occurred
late ou Thursday afternoon,, when
Miss Ohapman, Bister ol Mrs. J. E.
Lacey, was knocked down by the engine of the speciul train of Col. Sam
Huughes, Minister of MilitJia.
It appears that Miss Chapmen ac-
govern- icompanicd by Mrs Boulter, was walking along tbe track, undent the cross-
iing just west of town stepped aside
to allow the train to pass. The
ladies saw. the train approaching and
stepped aside in ample time ,but Uicy
failed, however, to notice that the
engine       was       equ'lpped       with       a
[stiow        plow       which projected
much further tlian the cowcatcher, and Miss Chapman was
hit In the back, throwing ber against
Mrs. Boulter, who received a niiBty
blow on the forehead. The train pitll-
edeil up and the injured lady was
taken to thc depot, and a sleigh being secured she was taken to thc residence of  her sister.
i Medical examination showed that
Miss Chapman had sustained six broken ribs and another [raiitured, while
later reports say that happily no
complications are feared and that
she is doing as well as could bc expected.
Despite the shock of tbe blow, Miss
Chapman never lost consciousness
and waB able to give directions     to
! those on' thc train where to take her.

Mr. Colpitts went into a detailed
account ol historical facts, and gave
instances of empires which had fallen through unpreparcdness, und thus
made themeselves an easy mark to
other nations coveting their possessions. Mr. Le Gallnis argued from
the standpoint of self-preservation,
and not because ol the desire foran
uggressive militarism. Referring to
tbe present European crisis. Mr. Le-
Oallais asked his opponent what
