Shipping Fish to England
Although the United Kingdom
is the greatest fish - producing
country of the world, Canada is
at the present time exporting
fish to the Old Country. This,
of course, is owing to the war.
So many trawlers have been taken by the Admiralty that the normal catch of fish has been greatly reduced —it is said as much as
60 per cent. Fish forms such a
staple article of diet in Great
Britain that the unwonted shortage is serious. Under these circumstances, Mr. Bonar Law, the
Colonial Secretary, appealed to
Canada, and a sample shipment
has been sent over in the hope of
developing a market for Canadian fish in London, at least for the
duration of the war. Part of the
shipment was fresh, frozen fish,
but the greater portion was
smoked and prepared. If the experiment proves a success, this
consignment will no doubt be the
forerunner of many more and
larger cargoes. It is even possible that a market may be thus
established for certain kinds of
high grad_ fish which will remain
after peace is concluded and become a permanent item in Canada's commerce with the Motherland.
Who Talks of Peace
Canada's Supply
According to R. H. Campbell,
Director of the Dominion Forestry Brauch, Canada's present
supply of commercial timber has
been variously estimated to be between five hundred a seven hundred billion feet, board measure,
and to cover an area of approximately 170.000,000 acres. This
estimat*-of quantity and area refers only to timber of commercial
value as saw-timber. It does
not include pulpwood, firewood,
tie and pole material nor small
iimber of any description, although this has undoubtedly a
large commercial value.
The Commission of Conservation ia engaged upon an investigation of the forest resources of
Canada, which, when completed,
will furnish the basis for more
accurate estimate of the amount
of timber in the various sections
of the country than has previously been practicable.

Victoria Hotel,
.p. b. lewis, prop.
I warned you a little while ago
that the talk of peace terms would
shortly be in the air. There were.
I told you, two dangers: One was
that our arms might meet with
trifling reverses, and that the Pacifists and pro-Germans among
us would seize the opportunity to
cry a halt' 'lest more blood should
be uselessly shed and more treasure wasted." The other danger
was that the enemy, realizing the
hopelessness of the struggle,
should start the talk of peace in
neutral countries, through the
million mouths of his spies and
secret agents. The last is the
danger that threatens us.
The enemy knows he is beaten.
Hammer that fact into your brain!
Whatever doubts may still linger
in the minds of certain journalists and public men the enemy
has no doubts. He knew he was
beaten before he started the Balkan adventure; that was merely
a piece of poker bluff to get better terms. His reserves are exhausted, and perhaps in a month,
certainly within three months,
his first line will begin to shrink.
Before that happens, before he is
driven out of Belgium, France,
and Russia, the Allies must if
possible. be maneuvered into an
offer. If that prove impossible
then, but only then, the offer will
come from Germany. And so,
now, from Amsterdam, Switzerland, and America come persistent rumors that after all Germany
is not so irreconcileable, that she
is not "a merciless conqueror,"
that if only the Allies will take
the first step "this horrible war
may be stopped."
Don't be bluffed.
If this plea does not work the
tune will alter. Then we shall
hear how wicked it is (and useless) to try and crush a great
nation, that our quarrel is not
with the German people but only
with their Government, that if
we make them hate us the legacy
of hate will breed new wars.
There lies the greatest danger.
For the Briton carries his sense
of sportsmanship to quite absurd
lengths. If the other fellow will
only say "Ive had enough" he
wants to shake hands and have a
drink with him. Will you treat
the German like that? Don't
you know he will try to poison
your drink? Don't you know
that any treaty he makes he will
break at the first opportunity?
That the only chance of a lasting
peace lies in the absolute smashing here and now of the German
power. Hate us, will they ? Of
course they hate us, and will hate
ns whatever happens. Thank
God for that! But hatred does
not affect their policy, which is a
cold ».nd remorceless attempt to
gain the mastery of the world.
The policy will continue until
Germany continues to be a great
Power. Therefore we are out to
crush Germany, to destroy her
armies as a fighting force and
obliterate her fleet.
Be assured that Germany would
be willing at once to accept terms
far more favorable to the Allies
than any yet broached. She
would, certainly be prepared to
abandon all the invaded territory,
with the possible exception of
Antwerp: she might be prepared
to abandon Alsace-Lorraine, and
to see Poland—German, Russian
and Austrian—established as an
Annual Meetings
This winter a special attempt
will be made to stimulate public
interest in matters pertaining to
forestry and lumbering by holding various annual meetings at
Ottawa during consecutive days.
The annual meeting of the Commission of Conservation, at which
all aspects of the situation affecting the natural resources of Canada will be considered, will convene on Tuesday and Wednesday,
January 18th and 19th. To avoid
conflicting with the annual meeting of the Canadian Lumbermen's
Association, Wednesday, January
19th, forestry problems will receive special attention on the
first day of the meeting.
The Canadian Society of Forest Engineers, the membership
of which is made up of men engaged in professional forestry
work throughout Canada, will
hold its annual meeting Tuesday
evening, January 18th. Thursday, January 20th, is the date
set for the annual meeting of the
Canadian Forestry Association,
whose publicity campaign has
done so much to forward the interests of forestry in all parts of
the Dominion. Separate programmes will be prepared for
each meeting, having particular
reference to the problems confronting the respective organizations. A special effort will be
made to work along the lines of
co-operation, since the fundamental interests of forestry and
lumber are identical.
It is expected that, as a result
of holding these meetings conjointly, a much better att&ndance
will be secured and greater interest manifested than would be
possible under the previous plan
of holding the various meetings
at different times.
Germany may build up an alibi
for her latest sea murder by
some of the following;
1. That the boat was not attacked by a submarine, but was
blown up by a whale which swallowed a floating mine.
2. That one of the passengers
was seen trolling off the port
bow, evidently with dasigns on
submarines.
3. That the captain had a picture of a British dreadnought in
his cabin.
5. That the assistant purser
was known to smoke a pipe shaped like a revolver.
independent or semi-independent kingdom. She might be
prepared to go further. None of
these concessions matter a hang.
A treaty on these lines would not
be worth the paper it was written
on so long as the enemies armies
remain intact and the German
navy rides at anchor in Wileelm-
shafen. The treaty would be a
dodge, it would be torn up as
soon as Germany felt herself
strong enough to renew the fight.
We dare not trust her, we will
not negociate with her, she has
shown she does not know the
meaning of honor, that her word
has no value, and that her word
is just as good as her bond. She
is a wild beast that must be
caught and caged" When she is
safely behind the bars we will
dictate the terms of peace. One
thing more! Murder has been
done, and the murderers must be
judged.—London Daily Sketch.

WINES, LIQUORS, AND THE BEST OF CIGARS
Canadian War Finance
[from Vernon News]
The Monetary Times says
that the Government's $50,-
000,000 war loan was oversubscribed in eight hours,
and that a loan of $200,000,-
000 or more could just as
easily have been over-subscribed without making serious inroads into Canadian
savings and without impairing Canadian creditor deter-
minativn. The editor bases
this statement on several obvious facts relating to increased production in this
country. Last year Canada's field crops, forests, fisheries, and mines yielded
$975,000,000. This year,
with the harvesting of the
greatest wheat and grain
crops in Canadian history,
the value of production from
these four sources will exceed
SI, 000,000,000. An adverse
trade balance of $300,000,-
000 has been converted into
a favorable balance of $100,-
000,000.
It may prove that the
loan was a ' 'feeler" and subsequent issues may be brough
out to heip finance the war.
A particularly satisfactory
feature of the flotation is
the widespread response of
small investors, which reveals
at once their patriotism and
their appreciation of an especially good investment.
Mr. White has had remarkable successes with war loans
first abroad and now at home.
His management of the financial problems of a very
difficult period have earned
the approval and even the
gratitude of a whole nation.
J As for the future, it has
been suggested that were it
possible for the Canadian
people during the war to
keep down their home expenditures and to redeem
some of the capital previously supplied by Great Britain
their position after the war
would be greatly strengthened. "Most people expect a
great immigration to Canada
of men who, as soldiers, have
led an open-air life, and who
are not willing to return to
office, mill, ormines. If this
expectation is realized, Canada will then need a good
deal of new capital to take
care of newcomers. Therefore, if during the war she
strengthens her financial position by repaying a part of
the great sum of capital obtained prior to the war, her
ability to get new capital af
ter the war will be very much
increased. Indeed, she will
be able to get capital for herself in some measure by reselling to the British people
the securities she may now
be able to buy." It is also
pointed out that in order to
promote larger purchases of
munitions by the Allied Governments it may be necessary
to arrange for them an extensive credit here as in the
United States. In any event,
he who husbands his resources by avoiding waste and
extravagance while the war
lasts wili be contributing
something towards a triumphant peace and towards the
financing of the period of reconstruction which will follow the war.
Belated Recognition
The Saturday Evening
Post has strained neutrality
to the utmost limits since the
war started, and must have
disgusted thousands of its
Canadian readers by the cool
assumption, frequently expressed or implied, that all
the beligerent nations were
alike at fault for commencing the struggle, and that
Britain's honorable haste in
fulfufilling her obligations to
Belgium was inspired rather
by motives of expediency
than justice. It is somewhat
refreshing therefore to see
the following rather belated
acknowledgement that things
in Britain are by no means
as desperate as the outspoken
criticism of certain London
papers would lead the public
to belive. In a recent editorial the Post says, refering
to John Bull's method of conducting business in war time:
"In a life and death struggle
with Napoleon he turned out
half a dozen Cabinets. He
had no sooner got the Crimean war neatly upon his astonished hands than he indulged in a Parliamentary
spasm, and fired the Ministry
When Foreign relations are
as bad as they can be, and
brickbats are coming through
all the windows like hail,
John's first idea is to grasp
the Government firmly by the
whiskers, break a chair over
its head and kick it under the
table—after which he feels
fit to attend to the little matter outside." This is a shrewd
estimate of a certain phase
of English character not often understood by those not of
English blood. Another national peculiarity, one mentioned by Sir Conan Doyle,
is the British habit of bitter
self-criticism just at a time
when things are going best,
and a strange, half-morbid
modesty that gives a false
idea of lack of spirit, lack of
enterprise, and lack of determination.
There has been no time
since the beginning of the
war when there was at bottom a greater cheerfulness
and confidence in the British
heart. There may be dark
days to come, but there will
be no more night. The worst
hour in the night was that
which ssw the destruction of
the gallant Admiral CradocK
and his little squadron. There
will be no more such hours.
There will be no more hours
of such poignant anxiety as
when von Kluck was making
his great drive on Antwerp,
or when the German army
occupied Antwerp. The
worst is over. There may be
more Cabinet changes, more
high officers superseded,
more angry exchanges between leaders of the nation,
