Major General Sir Sam Hughes,

Au effort will be made to raise a

i ment and Senator Lougbeed, will be
asked to address tbe meeting. A committee consisting of Mayor W. A.

appointed to ask the Womens' Canadian club to co-operate in making
the arrangements for the dance. It
was also decided to ask the ministers
of the various churches in the city to
set aside tbo second Sunday in November     for special reference to     tho
need for recruiting. Id addition to
drills for the recruits who enlist for
active service, it is intended to have
drills for those who are at present
unable to enlist but who intend to
do so later and who would be glad to
gain  military  instruction.
Following the board of trade meeting on Thursday evening a telegram
was sent to Gen. Hughes by tbe secretary of the board as follows:
"Newspaper accounts of recruiting
say any city which can raise 2-5 men
or over may have same stationed and
drilled for the winter tbere. Tho

number or more and rcijuest permission to start as Boon as possible."
A reply wns received from tbe minister of militia next morning as follows:
"Lettergram fourth received. Revelstoke may start right away. Notify
Col. Ogilvie of Victoria, R. 0."
At the executive meeting of tho
board yesterday it was decided to

tram to Col. Ogilvie and to Immediately take advantage of his offer.

Provincial Horticulturist Commends Produces of Revelstoke Ranches
M. S. Middleton of Nelson, provincial horticulturist, spent yesterday
in Revelstoke on his way to Nelsou.
While here Mr. Middleton was drive,,
through the country by A. J. Macdonell. Mr. Middleton explained to a
number ol ranchers the benefits of
spraying trees (or scab ^nd uphls. He
stated that he has seen In tbe Revelstoke district some of the finest vegetables and fruit that he has seen on
bis trip and that although Revelstoke did not as yet bave tho quan-
tity the quality ot the produco
which he saw was equal to anything
in thc .interior.
"This has been a bad year for
scab," said Mr. .Middleton, "but notwithstanding this fact, there has
been an average yield of fruit in British Columbia anil th i i mchi rs are
nil getting a particularly high price
owing to the shortage of crops in
ether sections."
On Mr. Macdonell's ranch Mr. Middleton did some pruning and gave
the following remedy tor BCah which
he states has been experimented with
by the government and proved very
satisfactory: Mix lime and sulphur 1
to 25 and spray with strong pressure
iu the spring when the blossom buds
are opening and 'show jiink. When
the blossomB fall the same spray
mixed 1 to 40 should be used again
with a strong pressure. "This must
be done In a verv thorough manner,"
he said. "One twig left unsprayed
will produce enough sjiores or Reed
fungus  to  infect  the  whole  orchard."
Tf aphis are prevalent Mr, Middle-
ton advises using a blnrk leaf -in mixture at tb" rate i.f ) pound to the
barrel. This could be mixed with tho
lime and sulphur and spraying could
be done at any time.
Mr. Middleton left this morning for
Nelson. I

Committee of Board of Trade
to  Advise   Department—
"Too Much '{Politics"
No wit! st indir.1' the fact that a lettei was read trom the minister of
justice, in which he said that it would
not he possible to retain the alien Internment camp in Revelstoke during,
thc winter, aud explained fully the
reasons tor the government's decision
the board of trade at its meeting oa
Thursday evening decided to suid tbo
usual telegram and letter on the sub'
ject to 11. K. Gre u, M.P. The re
duction in the train aad boat service
I,'tween Revelstoke and tbe tributary
country to the south was brought to
the attention of the board, but tho
subject was dropped without debate.
The questioi of the extension of tho
boundaries of the Revelstoke park
was discussed..
(July eieht members of tbe board attended the meeting, but the discussion was occasionally spirited.     One
 i.'rr  told  the  board eim hatically
thai too much politics entered ui'o
its affairs d permit i.f a successful
board of trade. The mem', ers. be
ia:d. had their eyes trained upon the
[OEsible political effect ot every question. If they would give more attention t.e the welfare of the city and
less to politics, they would achieve
be ter results, he declared. "Youne"-
er spoke a truer word" was tb - com
ment ol another on this statement
When the proposed extension of 'he
boundaries ol the Revelstoke park
was brought up II. J. McKinnon e.
pressed the opinion that Revolato'te
had all the park in the neighborhood
that was feood for it.
A. McRae did not think bo. Ha ''.intended that the board of trade tad
made a great mistake when it fid
not adopt bis suggestion, md •ecoia-
mend that the park should include
the land extending to the Columbia
river beyond the city limits >s tar
as the Canyon. Even now he eliov-
ed that the government shoul 1 confiscate the land where i' had lucn
taken by settlers or should c'.vc
them other land In tc ineo. "ho
fiat to which be referred would be tbe
proper place for a zo.i and for the
park buildings.
F. J. Bourne did not agree -vith
this view.Mr. McRae and othe s Ill's
he could go to the prairies if he
wanted Bhootlng but th re were mury
others who bad no chance f getting
any shooting Unless they c lUld shoot
close to tbe City. There were also
homes being built up on tbe land
which Mr. McRae advocated taking
for the park. He thought that tho
addition of Mr. McKne's suggestion
would be a great mistake.
Vi.  A.  Foote was not satisfied     of
the     wisdom of  including tbe     land
along the Rig Bend road in tlie park
but he did favor extending the loan
darles on the mountain as far as tbo
City   limits.
On motion of Mr. McRae seconded
by Mr. McKinnon a committee consisting of 0,  A. Macdonald, W.     A.
Foote nnd the chairman was appointed te, make a recomi endation to the
park officials on behalf of tbe board
of trade. The committee will afterwards report to tho board on the action it has taken. Mr. Bourne vot
ed against the motion.
A letter was received from the publishers of a directory asking what
were the land values in the Revel-1
stoke d's.'rirt. The board placed the
value of land at $15 for raw land and
from  $100  to $800  for improved  land.
The   letter  on  the  internment    samp
qsestion from Ii..n. c. J. Doberty,
Minister of Justice, wns as follows.
"W i M reference to yonr night, b t-
tergram of the 9th October, 1 am just
in receijit. of a report obtained from
the officer In charge ,,f internment
operations, by which he makes it ab.
sedately clear that the costs involved
in the transportation of the interned
prisoners to Field will not bc any-!
thing like the fit'iires mentioned     in!
year message, and aa agalnsi the value i.f the work to be done by tbem'
for 'this government, will be almost
insignificant. In dealing with these
prisoners, we necessarily have to look
to keeping the expenses to the country    at    as low a figure ns possible
and  deriving the  greatest possible re-1
turn In the general Interest, We have
not been able to look  upon tbe mat-,
ter as one where tbe Interests of par- j
tlculnr     localities was to determine]
our action.   1 regrel  thai under thoso
circumstances, it is not possible     to
retail-     Ibe camp at Revelstoke.     Tn
reaching this decision we arc not   In!

The freight returns also show that
British Columbia's premier industry
lumbering, is also experiencing a distinct revival. The British Columbia
division of the Canadian Pacific railway last week handled double tho
amount of forest products that Was
carried during tbe corresponding
week in 1914.
Agriculture is also more prosperous
in most districts. The fruit business
out of the Okanagan valley this fall
bas shown a 25 per cent increase over
iast year's. This is notwithstanding
the falling off In shipments of vegetables owing to limitation of the Alberta market through the growing of
vegetables this year on the prairies
in large quantities.
The activity of thc railways is also, in itself, a feature which gives
good ground for satisfaction, especially In Hevclstoke. So substantial
is the traffic that it is estimated
that engineers and railwayman, who
are being taken oil the regular runs
on the inception of the winter time
fables, will practically all be pro-
\ided with employment this Ial! and
sacrament of the Lord's Supper will
be administered. In the evening, at

Dp to the present recruiting in Revelstoke has been sporadic. Tbe response has been rendy, but probably-
far less recruits have joined the colors than would have heen the ' cas •
if a consistent effort had been made
to secure volunteers for overseas ssr-
\ice. Now that the recruits who enlist in Revelstoke will iri future receive their preliminary training in
the city, a more intimate connection
between tbe volunteers and the people of Revelstoke will have been, established, and as was the case when
the 51th battalieii was being raised,
the city will take a Bpcc al interest
in the recruiting campaign and in the
welfare nf thus, who join the c .'mrs.
The establishment of the training
dej'ot depends, it is true, upon tbe
enlistment of at least twenty-five
men, but tbat stipulation Will almost certainly be fulfilled. and the
laising ot a complete R el toke pla-
'i Bhould be quite poSBible of
achievement. There are undoubtedly
able bodied young men who
have private reus ms which prevent
them from enlisting, aud win.

Toronto Saturday Night: We are
living in abnormal times, and abnormal times beget reformers. And unless
all signs fail, we are going to be reformed before this war is over in
formed before this War is over in mo.'e
ways than we now dream of. We have
iefornied tbc Johnsoii-Williaid tight
pictures off the boards in spite ol the
tact that the provincial government
bad given its consent to their production for patriotic purposes- Vie
have reformed the bars to a half
time schedule. In many places we
have put the men in uniform on the
Indian list; and now the W.C.T.U.
would cut off our smokes, including
those ot the men doing our fighting
for us in Flanders.
The reformers, in these times of
strife and action, havc tasted blood,
,■ nd will not be satisfied until they
bave drained the hist dro|>. Tbey aro
on the trail like so many bloodhounds. And trom their poiut of
view they are right. There never was
a more opporture time to reform everybody and everything. The mind
just now is 'ipen to reforms, and tin-
W.C.T.U., the Ministerial association, Committees of Forty, Lord's
Day Alliance, and other organiza-
tlons are alive to thc tact. All one

Home Curious Survivals of Medieval
Times in Europe—San Marino
"" Calls Itself Oldest of StntesHJi
Belgium and Luxemburg are no
longer the only small states ot Europe concerned in the present struggle. Andorra hopes to keep out, but
Ban Marino has gone in because as a
neutral she nflered a fine perch Ior
tbe war birds ol Austria-Hungary.
The republic of Tavolara is presumably contrdbutiog its nuota to the Italian armies, and Cracow, once a
tiny, independent republic in the
heart of autocratic central Europe,
may >wt fail into the hands of the
Hussions, when they have gained
strength to come back.
Those little lands of Europe are
mostly curious political survivals of
mediae*ai times, aud most ol them,
although completely surrounded by
one or another great monarchy, are
republics. rfau Marino, Andorra,
Travolata ..nd Luxemuurg have less
than 1,5C'0 square mi.es, and Lbs thiiu
'■200,000 inhabitant* between them.
Their whole armed force is not
much above 2,hW men, though iu San
Marino almost one in ten of the
whole population is a soldier. The
same proportion would give the United States an  army ot  10,000,000 men.
Tavolara is the smallest of the Ehl-
lopean little lands. It is an island of
less than twenty square miles, just
ofl the northeastern coast oi Sardinia. Charles Alvert, kiug of Sardinia
and of Piedmont, on the Italian main-
Jaud, good naturedly turned over the
island ol Tavolara in 1S3G to the Bai-

A few weeks agio Australia had a
Manufacturers' Week. This was not
merely a propaganda to increase public interest in home manufactures,
not merely a iMade-in-Australia movement. It was a stirring call to the
Australian people to organize their
industries as a permanent boycott of
German and Austrian products. Th«
Australian people see now that by
generously patronizing German and
Austrian    manufacturers in the past
j twenty or thirty years tbey were
building up the great organization
Germany is now using to conquer
Europe aud wreck the empire. By
tbeir patronage they Were putting
bricks in the great editice of militarism constructed by the war lords.
The war has shown more clearly
than ever realised before the necessi-
! ty ol co-operation and mutual support in trade between parts of tbe
empire. Whether encouraged by a
system of preferences within the em-
pire or not, the solidarity of the
great free-will union must be
strengthened by lurger intercourse
commercially and socially. Ketusal to
1 build up enemies of the empire by
purchasing from them goods that can
be maue within the empire is a prin-
j ciple Aiiistralia is taking firmly in
mind,     aud  its Manufacturers'   Wees
' impressed the idea on every citizen.
Australia     has     been in a peculiar
trade position.   Its great mining and
; metal industries were practically
controlled by  Germans.   British met-
: al importers were content to let the
more enterprising and industrious
Germans exploit the Broken Hill and
other great ore bodies, aud to buy
supplies from the producing German
companies. Australia found it cou-
venlent to buy German and Austrian
goods in large quantities in exchange
for her exports. In 1D13 imports of
German goods were valued at, roughly, $25,OCO,0;>0, the biggest amount
paid to any foreign or n<>n-Engli:-b
speaking country. The principle commodities thus bought in were apparel and textiles, cement, drugs, fancy
goods, glassware, metal manufactures
wire, machinery, musical instruments
and paper. In the list of imports
there are few articles Australia cannot make herself or buy from Great
Britain or Canada and the United
Stat'.'S. In IMS Australia bought
about $55,000,000 worth of l'nited
States goods, and about $4,000,000 of
Canadian products. In buying from
the United States care has to be taken lest German goods are bought i n-
der the American label, but the Australians express determination to
make sure that their trade boycott
of the enemy is complete.
Australian made paints and dyes
are taking the place even now ol corresponding German goods. Electroplated ware, soaps, perfumery, chemicals are being newly produced. Felt
manufacture has been established in
bydney, Hat manufacturers are
turning out "Austrian velour." Australian beer and liquors are used exclusively in hotels. New piano-making enterprises are starting. All
these are signs ol the times, and are
tut a forerunner of what is coming.
".We have something to be thankful
for,'' say the Australians. "The war
has taught us to be more self dependent, lt is an old saying, 'Vou never
I now what you can do until you try"
and forthwith they begin to plan
how tbey can get along without retort to the Germans. Australia haa
not been nearly as well developed industrially as Canada, for instance,
I rlncipally because its isolation from
great industrial neighbors has allowed it to jirogress quietly aud naturally. Canada has been under an ex
ternal stimulus, both through United
states competition and because ol
the facilities for organising manufacture oflered by superior development
across the border. Australia has imported more than $210,000,000 worth
of goods from Britain a year, or h'i
per cent, of the total, and $45,00O,00u
from other British territories. This is
proportionately a far better Imperial
showing than Canada makes, for wo
buy' almost two-thirds of our Iforeign
purchases from the United States.
Australia therefore has immense opportunity for the development of
home industry and can easily switch
its former German business to Britain.
In urging thc organization of a 'no-
German-goods' campaign, the committee managing the Manufacturers'
Week points out very truly that Australians "have helped Germany to
build up its huge trade, helped it to
forge the creat military machine it
ia using today, and the war—in which
we mu?t be prepared to stake everything or lo^e everything—is a war on
its trade as well as on its menncing
guns." The committee goes on' "We
must tnke enre that we do not help
Germany to rebuild its forces for another such grent attempt. In a word
we must ta^e a l°nf out of GTmanv's
hook. Germany hns shown us in th'9
war what organization and preBpared-
nesa will do for a nation and that
organization extends to its industrial
and commercial life nt' less than to
its military life. On our part, we
must have every concentration of effort to build np our home Industrie-
pnd to build up our Imperial strength
We must make the empire stroncer

Called liy Kitchener
Finally  the opposers of inoculation
jdayed their trump card.  They    went
to Kitchener and obtained from   him
a declaration     that inoculation was
optional.   Tbis declaration was widely advertised.   But Kitchener had already taken measures to ensure that ;
the     British soldier should be inocu- I
lated.   Already     he  had  called      his |
friend Sir William Osier, into consul- I

who  is  Regius  Professor  di   Medicine
at     Oxford University,  brought     his
versatile genius into play.   First   he
wrote a letter to Thc Times.  It   was
not weighty;  it contained  no  statistics; it was just a man to man talk.
It rebuked the antis without     abuse;
it     told     the soldier he  would be a
menace  to his regiment rather   than
a help     if     he were not inoculated.
Then Sir William, at the request     of

During     the     war Sir William has
tendered     service—hew valuable     n-i
man can say.   All the diseases which
the trench work of last winter added

thc laboratory of this famous exponent of medicine as an exact science.
The     Dardanelles operations brought
fresh problems.   That mysterious fev- j

now being examined with that     rare j

William who said "too old at forty" j

Talking of the Dardanelles reminds
mc that the army authorities are indebted to another Canadian in no
slight way. Winter is coming on; a

In 1808 Delcasse made the great decision for his country. France, having lor u ipiarter of a century i>ur-

Pious men in the trenches, who are

not unanswered, and already at the

of war in Flanders, the divisional

individual character.
There was 'good old Hartley'—always cheered along the road by the
boys who were at Mons and Le Gateau. 1 travelled on it myseW hack
from tbe refilling point, and sure enough, as we passed a battalion on
the road, the men grinned, and shout
ed out, 'Good old Hartley! a till running?' For months she has never tailed to bring up the supplies to tho
ammunition train, dodging shells on
her morning trips.
Then there was old I.azenby,' somo
times called 'Pickles.' She has been
througb many a narrow shave, and
had got bogged scores ol times, and
bad almost been scrapped until tha
master mechanic, who loved all the
column this side idolatry, had put
in some new spare parts, and tight
ened things up a bit, and kept heron
the road. It was the same witb
'llovis' and 'Jacobs' and Mild Carter
l'aterson-their medical history is so
full of details that there are not
many of their original parts left, and
only the outer body and the inner
soul of the lorry remain unchanged
after all,this patching up and refit-
tint; of fans, radiators, cylinders,
magnetos, cardan shafts, axles, valves, pistons, and die cases.
'There were times,' said one of the
drivers of 'old Hartley,' 'when it
seemed impossible to save her. 'She's
gone at last,' said my chum. But
down we'd to, tightening up a sciew
here, or trying on a bit ol string
there—anything to keep her going—
until we could get to the journey's
end, and sure enough, here she is yet,
God bless her!'
Out. of the thirty-eight lorries which
came out a year ago twenty-three
still remain, and were spick and span
on the road, wlr-n I travelled with
thf tn a day or two ago.
'I had a German ollicer sitting
where you are,' said the driver of
Hartley. 'He was frightfully wounded, so that I had to put one arm
around his neck to keep him from
slipping wh le T held the steering
wheel with the other hand. My chum
oliered him a piece of bread, and he
shook his head and said, 'The men
first.' After we had fed the others-

he ate racenoiisly. I think that was
fine of him. I shall never forget the
awful condition of the wounded. T

days when a lorry was hopelessly
broken down near the enemy's lines.
