Great Britain's Sacrifice
Cfrom Vernon News]
No step yet taken by the British nation in the conduct of this
war has been so profoundly sig-
nicant, says the Toronto Globe,
as the sacrifice of traditional liberty made by the almost unanimous adoption of the principal of
compulsory enlistment. The modified form of compulsory service
to which Mr. Asquith gave his
assent, and which has finally received the sanction of Parliament
has had a most depressing effect
upon the enemy. Read between
the lines, the comments of the
German press are illuminating.
While discounting the military
importance of this compulsory
measure, the Berlin newspapers
do not conceal their chagrin at
moral effect produced throughout
the allied countries. The Socialist newspaper Vorwaerts fully
expected "serious internal political conflicts" in Great Britain before the Bill was enforced, but
these hopes have proved to be
still-born. The comments of The
Lokal Anzeiger, however, may
be regarded as typical of sober
opinion in Germany.
"It cannot be denied that the
great Parliamentary victory of
Mr. Asquith expresses the uncurbed will of victory, because
the renunciation or the right of
deciding for oneself which this
Bill demands is one of the greatest sacrifices an Englishman can
make for his country. If the
British Parliament by a great
majority imposes on the people
such a sacrifice this proves that
the-factors which are at present
still dominating Great Britain are
fir.nly resolved to lay a burden
on their country for victory's
sake."
Not the least important result
of the Bill has been the moral effect in France and Russia. It is
an open secret that one of the
strongest reasons for pressing
the compulsory bill through was
the necessity of proving to the
other Allies, in such concrete
form that it could not be explained away by the enemy, that Britain is in this fight to her last
man and last cartridge, German
secret agents have been endeavoring to divide the Allies by creating the impresaion among the
Belgians, French, and Russians
that Great Britain was still "Per-
fide Albion," and that she was
leaving her allies to bear the
chief brunt of the war. In face
of the compulsory bill German
intrigue in this direction is nullified. That the Allies are favorably impressed by this latest
evidence of Britain's grim determination to see the war through
is shown by the tactful allusions
of their newspapers. France
particularly has been deeply stirred by the action of the British
Parliament and people. The
French have not ventured at any
time to offer advice to the British
people as to how they should
manage their affairs. They have
recognized from the outset that
complusion is foreign to the British conception of liberty, and
they accordingly emphasize the
introduction in its present modified form of the compulsory principle of enlistment as an earnest
of Great Britain's resolve to count
no sacrifice too great that will
insure the overwhelming defeat
of the enemy,
Patriotic Concert and Dance
A Grand Patriotic Goncert and
Dance in aid of the Red Cross
Society, was held in the Globe
Theatre, Lytton, last Friday evening, February 18.
The programme consisted of
thirty numbers, every one of
which was very ably presented,
and highly appreciated by the
audience.
At the close of the programme
refreshments were served. Dancing then occupied the assembly
till the wee small hours. Everybody entered into the spirit of
the occasion with a vim not to be
denied and a very enjoyabe time
was spent, and, last, but not
least, the fine sum of $116.00
was added to the Red Cross.
What does the book say about
it? is the latest town gag.
The Senator and the Major
were walking up the avenue. The
Senator was more than middle
aged and considerably more than
fat, and, dearly as the Major
loved him, he also loved his joke,
The Senator turned with a
pleasant expression on his benign
countenance and said: "Major,
did you see that pretty girl smile
at me?"
"Oh, that's nothing," replied
his friend. "The first time I saw
you I laughed out loud."
A young preacher went fishing
for trout, accompanied by two
girls from his parish. A farmer who was also out fishing called
to the preacher.
"Ketchin' many trout?"
"I am a fisher of men," said
the young preacher with dignity.
"Well," the farmer smiled,
and then looking at the girls,
said: "I see you've.got the right
kind of bait with you."
It is rash for the measles to
rush into the west, before the
grippe has let go its hold. Pretty
soon the spring fever will be
chasing us with a lasso, with the
typhoid and smallpox sneaking
around looking for a soft spot to
light. Nice world. We will sell
our interest in it, for a back seat
in the top gallery of the New
Jerusaleum. —Ledge.
Have you herd this story? The
Crown Prince was having a nice
little chat with his father, the
Butcher of Potsdam, and apropos
of nothing said, "Father who
started this war?"
"I know," said the father playfully, but I won't tell.
"Did Cousin George start it?"
persisted the youth without a
chin.
No! said the father.
Did Cousin Nicolas?
No! said papa.
Did Francis-Joseph?
No! said the old man.
Well, who did then?
"I'll tell you, son! You remember Teddy Roosenvelt came out
of Central Africa and called on
several years ago, and I showed
him our magnificent army'; I
showed him our great and glorious navy; I showed him the zepps
and the submarines and the gas
bags, and Teddy, greatly impressed, slapped me on the back
and said:
" 'Bill, my boy, you can lick
the world'—And, like a damned
fool, I believed him. —Ex,

Mr. P. Le Mare i_ on a visit to
the coast city.
Miss Sparing (nurse) arrived in
Lillooet last week and is officiating in the Lillooet Hospital.
Mrs Elliott and little son left
for the coast city on Monday by
way of Lytton.
Mr. W. Mitchell of Notch Hill
arrived in Lillooet this week enroute for the 15-mile ranch.
Tom Manson returned from the

spending the past two months.
Miss Whitehead, late rurse at

last week.
, Mrs. H. A. Christie who has
been spending the past few
Weeks at the coast returned to

i   *
Messrs Z. Kirby, E. Long and
?F. Gott, three more recruits for
the 102nd, left Lillooet on Sunday for the coast to join the rest
of the "Boys."
D. Collins has sold his placer
?claim on Bridge river. The pur-
Chaser while in conversation with
our representative stated that
he intended to commence operations as soon as possible.
A fine specimen of the Golden
Eagle was shot during the past
week by Pete Rebagliati, on the
Lytton-Lillooet road. It measured 7-feet 4-inches and weighed
10 pounds.
There is considerable mention
at the coast concerning the possibilities in and around Lillooet.
It is intimated that considerable
developments will take place in
the mining section in the near
future.
"Oh, Mr. Flipperly," she exclaimed, soulfully, "have you ever felt a dim, uneasy sense of
oppression as if the mere weight
of life were a burden too heavy
to be borne by the chained spirit
panting with psycsic longing to
be free."
"I invariably have such a feeling after a heavy dinner," was
the callous response; "but hitherto I have attributed it to the
pudding."
Erected 1851 - Still Good
A Lillooet Proposition
For a mine in which I am interested I need
$6000 to complete a tunnel which
will cross cut my lead at a depth
of 375 feet. This will make the
property a shipping mine. For
the $6000 I will give 100,000
shares in the company and in addition 10,000 shares in the Graham Island Oil Company. This
is the best mining speculation
yet offered in this city. The
company is so moderately capitalized that with the completion of
the tunnel the shares which I
offer for $6000 will be worth at
least ten times as much as you
pay for them. -A3, J P's Weekly.
In persuance of the policy of
market expansion in the interests
of the lumber industry, undertaken by the Hon. Minister of
Lands, two further bulletins,
prepared for the information of
lumber consumers, have recently
been printed. They are entitled
"British Columbia Douglas Fir
Dimension," and "BritishColumbia Western Soft Pine," respectively. The former publication
deals with the qualities of Douglas Fir for structural purposes,
and cannot fail to be of interest
to architects, contractors, and
others.
The bulletin is well illustrated,
the claims to durability being
supported by references to such
buildings as the Craigflower Farm
near Victoria, erected in 1851,
and the Craigflower Public School
built in 1853, Douglas Fir having
been used throughout except for
the roof of Red Ceadar Shingles,
and practically no parts of the
buildings having had to be repaired. Modern uses of Douglas
Fir for structural purposes are
instaced by reference to the Arcade Building on Government and
View streets, Victoria, erected
in 1915, and the new Wharf Reception Room, C.P.R. Dock, Vancouver. Another striking reference is to the Niagars Gulch trestle on the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway, built in 1896. Four
hundred feet long, one hundred
and twenty feet high, and on a
ten degree curve, containing three
quarters of a million feet of
Douglas Fir, the trestle was still
in excellent condition and good
for further years of service when
it was abandoned sixteen years
later, owiijg to the alteration in
grade.
The wood known variously as
Western Soft Pine, Mountain
Pine, Arizona White Pine, and
California White Pine, is described in a similar manner in the
publication "British Columbia
Western Soft Pine." This pise,
which is distributed throughput
the southern interior of the Province, is equal in working and
finishing qualities to the well
known Eastern White Pine, and
is now being sold for the same
purposes in the same markets.
Its uses for dimension and
framing timber, siding, and interior and exterior finish, ceiling
and partition work, sash and
doors, turnery patterns, box material, cooperage, etc., are touched upon in both the text and the
illustrations, the latter treating
of the course of the log from the
forest to the finished material.
My Neighbor
There is a lock of hair six inches long that only partly covers
his bald spot and really accentuates the nudity of his head; there
is a protuberance before him
which is neither useful nor aes-.
thetie; his hands are pudgy and
soft and his fingers are stubby
and short, with stumpy and un-
beautif ul nails. There are short
bristly hairs that grow on the
end of his nose, the pores of
which are large and distinctly
visible. He dyes his moustache
unskilfully and is kittenish. And
he believes that he was created
in the image of his Maker.— J.Ps

Other nations are watching the material development of Canada and other
parts of the Empire under
the stress of war. The New
York Post notes that Canada and Australia are finding
a new self-dependence in the
economic situation arising
out of the conflict. The Post
speaks of the new zinc and
copper refining industries virtually created by the war,
and of the project to refine
on the Canadian Atlantic
coast millions of dollars of
nickle ore that now goes to
New Jersey in the form of
matte. Many textile and
other manufacturers have also benefited by international
conditions arising out of the
world conflict.
The Post adds; "In Australia a commission has just
issued a report on the war's
effects, showing that the cutting off of overseas supplies
has made the Commonwealth
more self-supported. Previously, an attempt was made
to stop leather exports in favor of home factories, but
failed now large supplies once
sent to central Europe go to
new home plants. One of the
greatest wool producing regions in the world, Australia, will probably never again
import woollen clothing to
half the extent she was doing
up to last year." The unprecedented conditions of the
last 18 months must have
given manufacturers fresh
confidence in their own powers, a confidence that will
scarcely be dissipated by the
return of peace. Some new
industries have come to stay,
and older industries have
learned lessons of adaptability which can never be wholly lost. Two years ago no
one would have said that the
Dominion in a few months
could have accomplished what
it has in the increase of production, the augumentation
of exports and the favorable
readjustment of its foreign
trade balance.
It is indeed clear, says the
Toronto News, that the whole
Empire has been awakened
to a new appreciation of its
own resources and potentialities. In discussing Britain's
trade policy the other day
Mr. Runciman told the Imperial Parliament that it
would be a policy under w'ch
''there shall be no essential
article for either the arts of
peace or war that we cannot
produce within either Great
Gritain or the Empire." The
Wall Street Journal and other American publications accept the British Minister's
statement as forcasting the
abandonment of Free Trade.
The Journal says: "When the
British Empire was summoned to war she tound she had
no sugar, no zinc, and very
little copper in her whole Empire. She found Canada rich
in natural resources, the producer of gold, silver, lead,
zinc and nickle in abundance,
but without a refinery in the
entire Domiaion. Now the
meaning of Runciman's declaration is that hereafter
there must be refineries in
Canada and war and food
supplies within the Empire
and also that protection by
military forces on land and
sea is not alone the protection that the British Empire
will require." Such comment
is significant. The return of
peace may see the creation
of a tariff alliance against
the Teutonic powers, together with reciprocal preferences within the British Empire
Certainly there must be closer co-operation amongst all
parts of the Empire for all
time to come.

They have fought their
fight, and they have gone to
their long rest. There is nothing more we can do for
them. Wearing black will
not help them in any way;
but much remains to be done
for those that are left behind.
Then there always seems
to be a certain ostentatious
parade in wearing flowing
black veils and yards and
yards and yards of crepe—
it looks as if our grief was
such that it might be staunched by a lavish display of
black clothing—or that we
found a certain amount of
consolation and satisfaction
out of a death provided we
can flaunt our woes m the
eyes of a sympathetic world.
The heart that truly grieves
has a sorrow so sacred that it
hides its woe from the eyes
of all nor seeks to voice its
grievous loss in an ostentatious pagent of black.
Also, we must remember
that- there are other people
besides ourselves in the world
Life is not so happy, bright
and cheerful at present that
we should go out of our way
to make things look more
sombre still. There is a world
of anxiety in the air, and it
is not for us to add to the
anxiety of others by parading
before their eyes our selfish
grief, and bring home to
them possible sorrows that
may await them in their turn
We should not give way to
our grief and abandon ourselves to our tears, and heavily draped in black present a
picture of mourning, woe and
unwilling martyrdom to oth-
