SERBIA DESERVES AVENGING
Both Britain and Fiance have put
lr ollicial form their determination
that full Independence Ior Serbia
must be one of the conditions of
peace. It is not alone that, like Belgium, Serbia deserves avenging by
the powers of the Entente, Serbian
independence is also a chief tar to
the grand scheme of the Germans to
control the vast and populous tract
of Europe from Berlin to Constantinople, and thence in Asia to Bagdad
and the Persian Gulf. Now that Bulgaria nnd Turkey huve become subject
to Germany, the scheme would be
complete were there to be concluded
a peace allowing the retention of
Teutonic sway over the Balkans, Germany realises now th.it hope of suc-
cessful competition with Britain in
the matter ol sea power has disappeared. In its jilace the Kaiser and
lis advisers hope tee form a union of
Central and South Europe, Independent' of the need of sea. power, rutting
off Russia from Western Europe and
obtaining full land access to Asiatic
territory.
it is significant that the list ol
te-rms of peace Gerraarjy might accept
as issued from a German source in
Washington, Bays nothing about 'freedom of the st-as,' nor does it insist
upon holding Belgium. Germany-
knows well thut there can be no
peace witb Britain that does not
maintain to tbe full the independence
ol Belgium. Already it is prepared to
abandon these, its new Idea ot torm-
Ing a solid economic blot Irom tht
Baltic to the Bosphorous Is ambition
branching out In an cat .rely diffi
channel. But that threatens the future of the British em] In and of Russia, as well as tnat 'd France li I

the Balkans must be prevented. It
used to be considered that Austria-
Hungary was necessary in Central
Europe ns a balance and butler, but
11 hat is not so now since it is not
much more than a German dependency. Serbia ought to be enlarged at
the expense of Austria to keeji the
old balance.
FROM THE SANCTUMS
No more extraordinary examples of
voluntary abdication on the part of
state governments has ever been
known than their general indifference
to certain alien crimes that have
been committed within their jurisdiction in the name of kulture.—Niagara
Falls, NMV. Gazette.
The suggestion from Germany, now
repeated, that her war prisoners may
be si mghtered in cold blood if tbe
danger Of starvation becomes pressing, lends weight to Owen Wister's
description of Germany as a nation
which needs the services of specialists
on homicidal  mania.—Montreal Star.
One day there was hoisted from a
Germaci trench a sign reading: "The
British are fools." This was withdrawn and up was shoved the sign:
"The French are fools." Next one
reading "We are fools," and finally
Ihis one: "Let us all go home."
It took the Germans 15 months to
teach the point where they would
hoist signals of this kind. Even th?n
they overlooked the real point. They
.'/.ist do the bome going. The French
to whom they signalled, are at home.
Toronto Star.
Kitty, again face to face with her
enemy. Count Frederick, holds out to
him the King's half of the coin they
are both in search of. Frederic*
makes a grab for the coin, but Kitty, ever on the alert, quickly puts it
back of her, and smiles prettily as
the King and Count Sachio enter the
loom. Sachio she ignores entirely,
but she makes a very pretty and
quaint curtsey to the King, asking
bis permission to return to her hotel,
telling bim she is quite strong enough, after the rest she has just had.
The King, smitten with Kitty and
her breezy ways, tries to .lersuidj
her to remain at tbe palace as his
guest, but Kitty, anxious to locate
the other half of the coin whicb Fred-
crick's man took from ber on the desert, refuses.
An error has been made somewhere
in regard to Mr. Turner and the oflice of Agent-General. He is quoted in
a London dispatch as having said
that his appointment was by act of
parliament and for life. Mr. Turner Is
too experienced a public man to have
said this, and he must have been mis-
uoderstood. Appointments are never
made by act of parliament or of legislative assemblies. The otliee of Agent-General was established by a provincial act ir. 1901; the tenure of of-
: ce by the Incumbent in during good
behavior, and be is removable only mi
an address from the legislative assembly,    l'i e tenure is.   therefore,   eef
i!i''      Ban.e  nature as  thnt  of  a  judge
or an auditor general.  Practically     it
is   i life a| pointment, let it can     be

Interesting letter
From H. Munro
The following interesting letter has
I ecu received by lt. R. Atkins Irom
Hart   .Munro:
Care Camp Commandant, Cared-"
ian Corps Headquarters, Franca,
December 10th, 1915.
Your most welcome and newsy let-*
ttr just received and I must say Si
was more than glad to hear that you.
were all so well. It was quite a relief to know that the souvecders ar-*
rived o. k., as though they must look!
insignificant to one in your position,
each of them iB associated in my;
memory with an incident worthy of
note or a place now world famous.
As the new regulations forbidding the
export of such things were published
only two days after their despatch, I
made certain that the censor had attached them and I felt rather bad
over it. as I shall never be able to
visit most of those placcB again. It
looks now as though I might not get
back to the trenches before spring if
1 manage it then, ns there are a number of similar cases here which tbey
no m >t seem to want to operate on
Aline is a very simple case us com-
pared with many and if I bad a.
slight operation would bo as good as
ever in six weeks. However, 1 sup*
pose I shouldn't kick as this "bomb
proof" job no doubt looks good to
many of the boys who are putting up
with the awful wet and cold weather
in the trenches. My present work.
whicb consists for the most part in
carrying dispatches and letters between our oilice (tbe adjutant and
quartermaster general) and the numerous other otlices subservient to it.
is by no means heavy nril 1 for tho
most of the time forget that thcre is
anything the matier with nie. (If
ionise in fine weather the excitement
ol the firing line is better but not
now by any means. Located at Army
cups Headquarters and In the offica
which directs and supplies all tha
Canadians in the field, I have many
opportunities ol seeing the ihoys 'from.
home and I hardly ever go down the
street that 1 do not meet a Revelstoke face. Sonic of us arc boiling to
arrange a Revelstoke reunion hero
for Xrr.as. if we can arrange the necessary leave for the boys, and I
know they would all like to get together to exchange views und exper*
fences.
We       get       very good     cham
pagne here for B francs a ijuart, and
it Is the only French beverage which
is worth drinking. I am sorry I cannot be with you all for Xmas.
Of the Revelstoke fellows whom I
have seen lately I remember Leo Me-
Klnnon, Bill Calder, Tom Fleming.
Charlie- McRae Cecil Corson, O. Q.
Warren, Frank Tapping, Harrison,
Dave Orr, Sid Humphries. The ones;
In our battalion do not net in tu
town much just now, hut I expect to
see them in a lew days when they aro ■
laving a rest. If I can smuggle a
shell of a French .75 through to you
somehow I shall be glad to do it or
anything else that looks good to yon.
I Don't worry, I got en .ugh Germans
in the I months I put in in the trenches to more than square things.

Conservation Minis
Used in Japan
The forestry situation in Japan is
interestingly described, in a recent interview, by A,. Nakai, a district forester from Tokiu, who has been making a trip through portions of thc
United States, Studying the administration of (oust anus by tederul und
stute governments.
"Tbe total lores! area oi Japan, In-
Uuding Honshu, the Luchu Islands
and other smaller islands is 56,820,
001) acres. The forest covers T8.8 Per
cent, uf the total area of thc Japanese  Islands.    01  the   10,10   ,0   '  acres of
loteete in the principal Islands of tho
group, two thirds Is li standing Umbel ind tiic remainder Is being retor
csted. The lorwts are classlned Into
ttate, crown and private areas and
the timber is chiefly cedar, spruce,
birch and Japanese pine, which is
Mmilui   In   li'i" 'i im i'  lu  the  red  and
white pine ol the United states    and
Canada, but ol i'i'Iit nt jibysical
characteristics It requlr<M about 100
years for forest trees to attain a dia
meter of li to lfi Inches at a point
nb, .ut five (eel above the ground sur-
lace.
"Japan exports more timber products than it imports. Oorea and
parts of China and Europe, Austral-
in and the l'nited Kingdom consume
most of thc lumber exported, although the United States taken large
quantities of our oak. The Large
timbers Hied in Japan come Iri mi the
Pacific  Northwest.
"Conservation methods work successfully in Japan and complete re-
lorMtlng ul denuded areas can b'' a'-
complUheSd in Iron DO to 100 years.
Reforesting was oommenoed In Japan
about M V"nis ago and the system is
fiiw  nearly  complete,

seven major forest districts and within these are 205 subdivisions, all under comprehensive control. Areas
may be cleared for farming, but in
Japan the same units are small, averaging only three ucres for each
farm.
"Taking the timbered areas of Japan, including the southern portion
of Saklmlien, which is 00 per cent.
timbered,    Formosa   and Korea into
consideration, it will be observed that
Japan has a very large lorest   area,

The experiences ot a number of Americans who were in the midst of thc
great battle of Uhauipalgne, wnen
the French made tbeir notable advance agalnsi the Germans, are rt
lated in a letter from Hicliaid Norton, the organise) .uei commander ol

Norton's   narrative ie- the fact  that

Irom the Germane In the battle ,,f
Champagne was dated as (ar back as

seven years ago the Germans bad de-
i ided tn tight with gas."
The  letter is dated  at    La     CrolX,
Champagne, Octobei 14th, and is ad-
dressed to Billot Norton, bis brother,
in New   York.
"For smile weeks bdfore the battle

i a incline iii bow packed    tt
was with troops and munition trains.
There was every sort and description.
On the rolling land, over which the
trenches, cut in through the chalk
soil, ran like great white snakes, the
batteries of every sized gun were innumerable, I cannot tell you how
many guns there were, but in a radius of half a mile from where my
ambulance stood the first night there
were at least a dozen batteries of
various calibres, and they were no
thicker there than anywhere else. We
tried to sleep on the stretchers for ail
hour or two before dawn of the 2bth,
but when you have a battery of 150's
coughing uninterruptedly within less
than 100 yards of where you are resting, to say nothing of other guns to
the right and to the lett ot you, one's
repose is syncopated.
"On the morning ot the 25th the
cannonade slackened, and we knew
afterward that the three previous
days' work had battered the German
lines into a shapeless mass, and that
the French infantry had made good
the chance they had been patiently
waiting for all summer of proving to
the world their ability to beat the
Germans.
"We are in no position to tell what
troops did the best work, but every
one knows that the Colonials under
General Marchard did splendidly, as
did the Eleventh Corps, which was
alongside them. Only three or four
incidents of the twelve hard days'
work Btand out clearly in my mind.
The rest Is but a hazy memory of indistinguishable nights and days, cold
nnd rain, long rows of laden stretchers waiting to be put into the cars,
wavering lines of less seriously woun
ded hobbling along to where we were
■ ■   iting,      sleepy     hospital   orderlies,
ark underground chambers in which
the doctors were sorting out and caring for the wounded, and an unceasing noise of rumbling wagons, whirring aeroplanes, distant guns coughing and nearby ones crashing, shells
bursting, and bullets hissing."
Mr. Norton tells at some length ol
having his ambulances one day at
Perthes, at a spot only forty yards
distant from a battery which the
Germans were shelling. The shells
fell so cljse that the American ambulance men took refuge in a dugout,
the entrance of which was filled with
dirt and splinters from various explosions. A horse ambulance near
by tbem was blown up, and finally
the Germans brought their gas into
play. "We fixed masks on the wounded and on ourselves," writes Mr.
Norton, 'and after about two hours
thc Germans let up and we were able
to take a long breath and express our
feelings of the man who invented this
("irty way of lighting. Nobody was
really any the worse for the exiier-
ience, though our throats nnd eyes
troubled us f.er a day or two."
A party of ten Klko hunters came
in on Tuesday last from the South
fork country with a total of 24 deer.
two 'if them bagged four each.
November customs collections at

A vein of silver ore in the Silver-
Standard mine, Hazelton, running 12
inches to 4 feet in width, and in places 6 feet wide, has been stripped for
100 feet.
For the first time this year a shipment, consisting of 23 tons of silver-
lead ore waB received at the Consolidated company's smelter at Trail,
from the Kansas group situated in
the Stewart district on the Portland
canal.
A crew of men with teams are
building a road up Gold Creek to the
Copper Queen mine on Copper mountain. The distance from the property
to the mine is about three miles, of

shipping will begin as soon as the
road is built.
The Ruth mine at Slocan made its
first shipment ol zinc concentrates
for the year last month to Blende,
Colo. It is expected that this wlll
be the first of a number of regular
shipments, as the mill is now said to
be in readiness to turn out large
quantities  of  concentrates.
H. B. Brown of Vancouver, a well
known British Columlla mining man

H. Macl'hcrson of Trout Lake, but
who has lately moved to Gerrard for
the winter, is considering place for
interesting Great Northern shareholders in the active development of that
projierty. The Great Northern mines
are situated near Ferguson and Trout
Lake, and is considered as one of the
most promising of the big low grade
deposits of the north end.
Nine Mile Mountain, in the Hazelton district, is at present the greatest producer of silver and lead in the
province, with the excej-tion of the
Slocan district, and an interesting
and unique feature df this camp is
that it is owned almost exclusively
by British Columbia residents. There
nre a number of properties working
in this camo, all in a small way as
compared with the big mining com-
j.anies, but each makine a profit ob
the ore extracted and shipped.

A copper mine on Elk lake at the
north end of Vancouver Island will
soon be in operation. The ore runs

Bohunk sjiotters were recently used
at Coleman, Alberta, to obtain evidence against people violating the liquor laws. The Order of Owls meets in

got into this hall, and searched the
lockers of each lodge, including the
Rebeccas, for booze. Prohibition performs queer stunts against the liberty of the individual.

Frederick Palmer, the eminent American war correspondent, says that
if the curtain ol steel about Germaniy
could be lifted, the revelation of suffering in Germany from the scarcity
ol lood and the losses by the war
would be astounding. Maxmllien Har
den says in his newspaper Die Zu-
kunft: "We must confess that the German people for the moment are suffering great want." Greut Britain's
sea power is surely telling.

it was not until l'S^O' that a resolution was passed at a convention in

The association now realised the
need of the physical department in
the work but the difficulty was to ob-

with their heroic sacrifices. The government will also recognise and make
suitable provision in the way of assisting those of our returned soldiers

"I feel that any public statement
made at tbis time would be incoir.-

that I recognise that but one consideration is paramount in thc- minds of
us all—our every energy must be expended upon the task of assisting in
every way possible the prosecution of
