Future of  National   Railway
Association—Wind Up or
Reorganize
The following article from Toronto
Saturday Night will bc read with in-1
torest in Rovelstoke, especially I
among railwaymen, as it waB intend-
■ed to open in Revelstoke a branch
■tore of the Nutlonal Railway association.
Sooner or later—preferably sooner
•—the public of Canada will learn to
regard with suspicion the use of the
word "co-operative" to describe a
■company which endeavors to sell
them stock, or other valuable securities. The latest so-called co-operative venture to (nil hy the wayside
is National Railwuy Association, a
"co-operative" stores enterprise in
which Saturday Night has never had
faith, .md hus expressed the same iii
"Cold and Bros-;." A month ago, in
the financial section, nn up-to-date
report was given on the affairs of this
Company, showing that its creditors
were clamoring lor money. The opinion was expressed that it creditors
concluded not to wait, but applied
Ior a winding-up order, the stated
assets of the concern might show considerable diminution.
Creditors of tbis company  very recently determined   not to allow further extensions,  nnd writs began     to
issue, for various amounts.      Finally
tho company wns obliged to make un
EBSlgnraent,  with  Q,  T.  Clarkson   as
■assignee,  ft is said that the company
will not be wound up, but that a reorganization will be effected. Whether
this reorganization will cost the   numerous  shareholders,  who are     railway me.n residing in all parts of Canada,  additional     capital    outlay,  or
whether tlvy will bc merely asked to
tnak"  payments on     stock  for which
they have subscribed,      is     not   yet
known.   In  the last statement issued.
National Railway Association showed
assets amounting to $426,595.57, with
liabilities of only $(11,400,  which   left
a surplus of 8365,195,07. This was far
from  bcins n  merchandising or opcr-
atine surplus,  however, as it included amongst assets    the sum of $'2fi9,-
983,  the   latter     being     the amount
ahich shareholders still  owe on capital stock for which they have     subscribed.     The   company    might well
claim to he n large sum ahead ol the
game, on paper, but when it     comes
down to a  profit end loss statement,
the aspect is very different.     In fact,
the fallacy  of   the general statement
jpsued by the average company     cannot better be evidenced that   in.  this
case.  National Rnilway     Association
was (on paper)  over    S*3PO,oOO ahead
of the game, balancing assets against
liabilities.  Actually, they were short
of money with which to pay cash   for
the goods with  which their chain   of
stores had to be stocked in order to
keep the business running.     It seems
to be apparent that   those in charge
were neither true co-operatives,     nor
•good      business     people.     The     assignee,     G. T. Clarkson,     issue*    a
statement, in which he says tbat mismanagement has heen largely \ instrumental in bringing about the failure.
What shareholders will have to decide one   of   these days   is    whether
they will enter     upon   a reorganization,  or will    insist on a winding-up.
lf they have sufficient stock in   their
names, they can resist an attempt to
re-organize, und can insist that     the
company    he    left to its     fate     and
wound up. If wound up, it will     disappear, and their   liability  will     bl
completely extinguished.  If it is   continued,  there is apparently <«nlv    one
source from which  freBh  money     can
be  drawn,  and  thnt is through     the
shareholders     Under winding-up proceedings the shareholders,  as contri-
butaries, can be called    upon, I   presume, only for the amount of the deficit existing   when the company     is
cleared     up.     That is to    say, if the
stocks,in the various stores, and   other liquid assets, total 1100,000, while
claims and trade liabilities total   only $160,000, shareholders     would     be
liable to pay up amongst them   only
*60,no0.  They might, it is true,     be
"called" on for more, but they would
have the  final   surplus returned     to
them. They would, of course, lose also what they huve     paid in in cash.
On  the other hand,  if a shareholder,
having paid in S20 on his shares,    is
colled  upon,  under reorganization, to
1 ay in ?5<i more, he once again enters
upon   precisely    the    same   business
which has just fjillen to pieces under
his  feet.  If the  business  were to fail
once more, some time  in the   future,
he might lose more     money through
I is    continued     connection    with the
■concern than  II he     forced a winding
UP right now. This would appear   to
be a case' where shareholders,  in   addition    to being guided  by tbe report
oi the assignee,    might    call  in to
their assistance the knowledge of Mr.
Oeorge Keen, Hon. Secretary of    the
National Co-operative Uaion, at
Brentford, I dare say Mr. Keen might
bo quite able, and willing, to give
an expert opinion as to whether the
chain of stores already 'in commission)
can be operated under a scheme which
would bc profitable to shareholders.
It might be that Mr. Keen could suggest a programme of readjustment
under which the stores could serve a
purely co-operative function, by affording at less prieeB foodstuffs and
other articloB to the members, but
with no dividend to be paid on their
shares. In any event, shareholders
should get to the bottom of the business, from a business basis, before
they consent to reorganisation,
The original capital of National
Railway Association was 840,000, The
promoters were L. Q, Weiss, president; Thomas Houston, vice-president; J, F. Thompson, secretary-
troller, Just what good works could
treasurer, and J. F. Beady, compile executed by the "comptroller" for
an alleged co-operative enterprise,
when the said comptroller was active
ly engaged in another occupation entirely, is not apparent. Some, months
ago the position in which the company found Itself necessitated n
change of management, and a Mr,
Lynch was put in charge. But this
did not stop the leaks, nor lumish
new money. After tho concern had
been in business Borne little time, the
share capit.il was changed from $10,-
OIW—g modest sum—to $5,000,000. No
company ol this kind has any call
ior such huge capital, and this journal accepted the change as being an
adverse indication. Stock has been
sold all over Canada. It is' said then-
are four thousand shareholders, these
Ix'ing engineers, firemen, conductors
and trainmen operating on thc railway systems all over Canada. It is
to be hoped, for their Bakes, that the
final outcome of the business will uot
be disastrous.
Otto Wirtb, a Kettle valley rancher, was arrested lust week while trying to skip across the line. He wns
a German reservist and is now the
guest of the military authorities.

FOREIGN RELATIVES
Some time ago it was remarked
that among the illusions dispelled by
tbe war was that marriages between
royal personages cement friendships
between the countries concerned, We
have seen how futile is this idea,
when our greatest enemy today is a
grandson of Queen Victarla, and a
lirst cousin of the King of England.
It appei rs als i that two other grand
sons of the late Queen arc serving
with the German army, and probably
there are several other kinsmen ot
thc King of England and of the Caar
of Russia bending all their efforts to
thc dcfi il   ol  the allies.     Moreover,
the Brit sh  | pie are  paying     large
annual pensions to relatives of the
Hritis!: Royal family who ure Ger-
man subjects, and therefore British
enemies. That these pensions will be
stopped ,:s soon as the facts are made
plain is to be expected, though Mr.
Asquith declined to commit himself
i I ly upon tb's point when questioned  in thc House of Commons.

Malakwa, B. 0, Dee. 1.—(Special to
the Mail Herald). An enjoyable
farewell party was bold at tho Malakwa Farms on Friday evening iu honor of Mrs. St. Luke who is soon
to leave for Calgary.
Ross Howard is busy erecting a
new residence on his homestead.
E. Carley has joined thc Uritish
Columbia Horse and is now encamped at Vernon.
Through public subscription, *j5'2
lias heen remitted to the Fut.-ioiic
fund.
An article appearing in a recent
issue' of a neighboring paper relating
to tli" number of homesteads available in Malakwa is slightly erroneous. Three men from Notch Hill who
have made two trips to the district
report that the only good land not
already taken up is in timber berths. :
They anticipate several months delay in getting it released if at all,
although it has not the required
amount of timber on it to bc held us
such, Timber berths are a grout draw
hack as thev occupy large tracts of
the very best land in the most con- j
spiCUOUS places. When thoBe that do
not contain the amount of timber
required by law are thrown open for
homesteading it will vastly improve
the district, both in appearance and
wealth. i
The weather report for November is
as  follows:     Means,  minimum  20.74,
maximum 38.8, range 8.711 Total pre-1
lipitation 4.8 of which  .07 was snow.
The means for     the summer months,

mum   10.48,  maximum  7'-'.2,  range 3J. •
Total rainfall 2-.'>i'5.      Although    the:
light  rainfall for this  summer  might
tend to discourage an outside reader
it  is  safe to say    that sub-irrigation
together  with  this  rain  resulted      in
practically  a  three-quarter  crop    all

The Wizard
who put Music
into millions of
homes.
AS you sit in your own home and listen
to the stirring strains of a military
band—or the liquid, luscious notes of
a far famed singer—do you realize the
thanks that you, and all other music lovers,
owe to Thomas A. Edison ? As you know,
Mr. Edison invented sound-recording and
sound-reproducing instruments. It was due
to his genius that millions of homes are
able to enjoy everything in music.
It was due to Mr. Edison's efforts that you—no matter
where you live —muy huve the (Jreut artists, the famous bands,
the cleverest entertainers, the brightest publio speakers, right in
your home.
For more than thirty six years, Mr. Rdison has developed
and improved the Edison Phonograph and Edison Records.
The Edison Phonograph today—with its diamond reproducing point (requiring no needles)—has a softness, a richness,
a velvety smoothness, a wealth of delicate overtones, that
cannot he obtained with any instrument using metal needles
which must he changed with every record.
You really must hear the Edison to appreciate it to the hill.
