ASSIST THE  BELGIAN  FUND  . The .residents of Peardonville in  their effort to show.their appreciation  of the heroic Belgian and to assist  the Belgian fund, last Friday enjoyed  . a dance given by the South Dunach  Hall Association, which was a success  financially and socially.  Mr. Baines, the prime factor in the  movement and Mrs. Llewellyn devoted a great part of the preceding week  in selling tickets which were artistically designed by Mr. Harry Llewellyn our"Peardonville architect.  The, receipts realized from the sale  of tickets were forty-five dollars but  -at supper, after the reading of a let-.  ter from Mt. J. M. Whitehead, Belgian Consul, in Vancouver, a collection was taken up to which.all readily responded and the full receipts of  the evening totalled fifty-one dollars.  SOB  and eighty cents.  Abbotsford, Aberdeen, Mt. Lehman  and the Boundary line were well represented at the entertainment.  Dancing was the order of the evening, but songs from Mr. Wooler,  Mr.-Skipworth and Mrs. Taylor were  listened to by the audience and appreciated.  A vote of thanks was tendered to  those who furnished the music and  assisted in other ways, and the receipts of the evening were given to  Mr. Skipworth," secretary and treasurer of the South Dunach Hall Association, who has forwarded thea-  mount to Mr. J. M. Whitehead, Belgian Consul in Vancouver.  (Columbia pleases copy.)

Huntingdon  The sale of work by. the ladies of  St. Paul's church on Wednesday of  this week was well attended and quite,  successful.  Rev. Mr. Hayward of Sumas assisted Mr. Campbell last Sunday at the  regular service.  Many-people of Huntingdon, in-1,  eluding Mr. Charles Brown, are beginning to think that the'law must  be peculiarly, funny, following the recent order which compelled'the local  pool room to close its doors temporarily,, although the usual license fee  hadbeen duly paid. ���������  '  This paper, has been;asked to announce the fact that Mr; Lucas, M.

It is hoped that the good news will.  spread far and wide as it is wished to  give Mr. Lucas a very, remarkably  good" reception in Abbotsford. , He  is to talk on, a subject very dear to'  all of us, especially the man on the  soil, and the man on- the soil we all  want to see prosper.. Mr. Lucas is  very enthusiastic on his subject, and'  is making rounds of the vario'us places to tell the.people, what his ideas  are and to get the - co-operation ' of  the farming community of the province in order to back him'up in his'  appeal for legislation along the lines  dear to him and to every, farmer who  has sat and ��������� listened" to him for an  hour. .

LEHMAN NOTES  The "children of..the Sunday School  of St. Paul's are preparing for their  Christmas Tree entertainment to be  given on Tuesday .evening 22nd.-  Remember the date, December 9th  of the concert arranged ��������� by Misses  Steede, the musical event of the season.  Abbotsford's Kork Kolored Kornics  Minstrels, niggers, call them what  you will, are rehearsing for a big  entertainment which they propose to  stage on December 30th, tlie first  Wednesday after Christmas. All Abbotsford people should bear the date  in mind as the talented minstrels  will put into expression the words of  the poet who wrote "And there were  sounds of revelry by night."  Several friends of/ Mrs. Henry  Smith enjoyed the hospitality extended at her residence on Tuesday evening when whist was the pleasure  of the evening. After some exciting  and interesting play Mrs. King_cap-  tured the first prize, a tie, the booby,  a bag of candy going to Mrs. Eby.  A patriotic basket social and dance  was held in the/Orange Hall on Friday evening, November 20. ��������� The  school children sang the very popular  song, "It's" a Long, Long Way to Tipperary," -and everybody-joined in  the chorus. They, were encored and  sang the later addition of it. Very  suitable tableaus were rendered by  Miss J. Bell, Mrs. R. E. Chqwen, Mr.  R. E. Chowen, Miss K. Lehman, Mr.  J; Walker, Mr. J. Hay, Mr. N. Mac-  Lean, Mr. Harold Nicholson and Miss  Hannah.- Mr. "Sam Larmen gave a  very, good recitation and Miss M. Reid  played an instrumental piece. The  children then sang, "The Mermaid"  The Misses Gillis sang "Where the  River Shannon Flows.".The baskets  were sold, after which everybody enjoyed a good supper. Thc evening  was ended by a. good dance. The a-  mount of ?55 was acknowledged,  clear of expenses.  One of the most important events  of the season around Mt, Lehman was  a bear hunt. The animal had been  marauding Mr. A. Schroder's orchard  for some time past and one day the  boys turned out and killed the beast.  It was hauled home and skinned and  the bachelors of the vicinity are well  supplied with bear meat for the season.' ..-..'

It v.ould appear that the ruling which has caused the annoying  situation was made    recently ��������� when  now runing the local pool rooms applied for license    renewals.      It decrees that if a license is taken-- out  by a person who wishes to conduct  a poo! room business, .and that, business c.hanpcs liands during the year.  the new owner must take out a fresh  license, at ?? i), for tho remainder of  the year,   despite the  fact that the  original license covered   the   twelve  months.  The pool room men,after loking into the regulations under the act, contend that act does not rule that a license is not transferable. Strong representations have been -made to Attorney-General Bowser, the ".local  members and others interested in the  laws enactment and  enforcement.  Unless word is received allowing  the parties to continue business under the license taken out when they  bought the business, the pool-room  will remain closed.  One of the pool rooms at Missien  City has been closed.  in the Klondike."  Miss A. Gillis is spending a few  days in Sperling visiting her relatives there.

"His initial outlay  is small, but he insists on robbing  the people at every opportunity."-  Of course the middleman is in a  great many ways the direct enemy- of  both tho producer and the consumer.  Tlie producer in all confidence sends  his produce to the middleman in order to sell as there is no other central  selling agency. He takes the lucky  aspect of matters. lie plants the seed  in faith, and it grows. He is used .to  nature's plans; but he forgets that although nature may be honest, man  may not be���������generally not if he has  a chance to do a fruitgrower.  There should be some method of  disposing of the enormous products of the Fraser Valley . farmer  without it going into the hands of  such a man as the middleman?  The next ship to be completed is to  be called "Canada" in honor of what  Canada is doing for the Empire at  the present time.  Green Tomatoes, per lb...!   3c  peals in  tlie world.

Then will be the time to cry  good and loud, "Back to the Land"  There is a living there for all who  wish to till the soil.  The price of living will surely soon  take another jump, judging from the  trend of affairs at the present time.  Flour is going down; so is sugar. So  ���������the jump will be down instead of up  Many will welcome it, and it will do  more to stimulate business than any  thing that we know of at the present  time unless it be the sending of the  Kultus Kaiser to St. Helena, with a  Sir Hurson Lowe as governor of the  Island.

It seems unreasonable that Canada  should become divided as to the right  naval policy that our country should  adopt for the future; After the present session there will in-all probability'be an election and in the true  Canadian course of events ol the political arena, the naval policy will be  prominent among the issues before  the people. Can we Canadians afford  to disagree. about a naval policy at  the present time?  Had there been a compromise between the two political parties parties  previous to the last discussion on the  naval policy when Ottawa and some  of the members    were    the laughing  stock of the country, especially after  the senate threw out the bill, there  would not have been the opportunity  for the German Emperor to point his  finger at us and say some of the now  annoying things he is said to  have  said about the loyalty of Canada to  the Mother country.  ��������� The buy at home question is one  that applies to all people who do business in British Columbia. It does not  apply to the man only who buys his  groceries and dry goods in the town  in which he lives.  It does apply to the merchant who  gets his printing done in the east or  in Japan.  It applies to the man who receives  his salary from the taxes of the community. .  it applies to the man who purchases goods from foreign establishments  in preference to a local or Canadian.

No doubt when Germans  commenced their persistent advocacy  of-the "Made-in-Germany" idea they,  too, had to contend with those who  belittled .their efforts.

"A very large number of ladies are  anxious to do something with their  own hands for the comfort of our  troops.

For those reasons the Royal Government have  bee n pained and surprised at the statements ac-  , cording to which members of the Kingdom of '  Sorvia are supposed to have participated in ' the'  1 reparations for the crime"'committed at Serajevo;  the Royal Government expected to be invited to collaborate in an investigation of all that concerns thsi  crime,'and they are ready, in order to prove the entire correctness of their attitude, to take measures  against any persons concerning whom representations were made to them. Falling in, therefore,  with idea of the Imperial and Royal Government.  they are prepared to 'hand over- for trial any Servian subject, without regard "to "his situation or  rank, of whose .complicity in the crime of Serajevo proofs are forthcoming, and more especially  they undertake to cause to be published on the first  page of the Official Journal and tho Official Bulletin  of the army the declaration suggested by Austria-  Hungary.  1. To introduce at the first-regular convocation  of the Skuptchina a provision into the press law  providing for the most severe punishment of incitement to hatrecl or contempt of .the Austro-Hungar-  ian Monarchy, and for taking .action against any  publication the' general tendency of which is directed, against-the/territorial integrity,, of Austro-  Hungary. ' The Government engage at the approaching revision of the Constitution to cause an  amendment to be introduced into article 22 of the  Constitution of such a nature that such publication  may be confiscated, a proceeding at present impos-"  sible under the categorical terms of article 22  of  .   the   Constitution.  2. The Government possess no proof, nor does  ' the'note of the Imperial and Royal Government furnish them with any, that the Narodna Odbrana and  and other similar societies have committed up to - '  the present any criminal act of this nature through  the proceedings of any of their members.      Never-  the less, the Royal Government will accept the demand of the Imperial, and Royal Government;', and  will' dissolve ' the Narodna Odbrana Society    and-  every other society which may be directing its ef-' -  forts against Austria-Hungary.:  3. The Royal Servian Government undertake to  remove without delay from their public educational  ' establishments in Servia all that- serves or could  serve to foment propaganda against Austria-Hungary, whenever the Imperial and Royal Government furnish them with facts and proofs of this  propaganda.  4. .The Royal Government also agree to remove  from military service all such, persons as the judicial inquiry may have , proved to ,be guilty of.  acts directed against the integrity of the territory  of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and they expect the Imperial, and Royal Government to communicate to" them at- a later date the names and  the acts of these, officers and officials for the purposes of the proceedings which are to be taken' a-   -  ���������gainst >hem.  5. The Royal Government must-   confess    that  they.; do not clearly grasp the meaning or' the scope  * of the demand'made by the Imperial and Royal \  Government that Servia shall-undertake to accept -  the collaboration of tlie organs of the Imperial and. '-  Royal Government upon their -territory, .but they -  declare that they'will admit such collaboration as .  agrees with.the principal of international law, with .'  criminal procedure, and with good,neighborly re- ,  lations. - .,'    .' ~ \' -  ��������� - - -  .     '      ,���������  6. It-goes" without saying that the Royal "Govern--  . ment consider .it their duty to open an inquiry a-'  gainst all such.persons as are, or eventually may be,.  implicated in the plot of June" 28th, and who hap- '  pen to be within the territory of the kingdom.    As  regards the participation in this inqury of Austro-  Hungaran agents or authorities appointed for this  purpose by the,Imperial  and  Royal  Government,  the Royal Government cannot accept such an arrangement, as it would be a violation of the Constitution and of the  law  of  criminal procedure;  nevertheless, in concrete cases communications as to   -  the results of the question might be given to the  Austro-Hungarian agents.  7. The Royal Government proceeded, on the  very evening of the delivery of the note, to arrest  Commandant Voislav Tankossitch. As regards  Milan Ziganovitcli, who is a subject of Austro-  Hungarian Monarchy, and who up to June 28 was"  employed (on probation) by the directorate of  railways, it has not- yet been possible to arrest him  The Austro-Hungarian Government are requested to be so good as to supply as soon as possible, in  the customary form, the presumptive evidence of  guilt, as we'll as the eventual -proofs of. guilt which  have been collected up to the present, at the inquiry  of Serajevo for the purposes of the latter inquiry.  8. .The Servian Government will reinforce and  extend the measures which have been taken for  preventing the illicit traffic of arms and explosives  across the frontier. It goes.without saying that  they will immediately order an inquiry and will  severely punish the frontier officials on the Schab-  atz-Loznitza line who have failed in their duty and  allowed the authors of the crime of Serajevo to  pass.  9. The Royal Government will gladly give explanations of the remarks made by their officials,  whether in Servia or abroad, in interviews after the  crime, .and which according to the statement of  the Imperial and Royal Government were hostile  toward the Monarchy as soon as the Imperial and  Royal Government have communicated to them the  passages in question in these remarks, and as soon  as they have shown the remarks, were' actually  made by the said officials, although the Royal Government will itself take steps to collect evidence  and  proofs.  10. The Royal Government will inform the Imperial and Royal Government of the execution of the  measures comprised under the above heads, in so far  as this has not already been done by the present  note, as soon as each measure has been ordered  and carried out.  If the Imperial and Royal Government are not  satisfied with this reply, the Servian Government  considering that it is not to the common interest  to precipitaio the solution.of this question, are  ready, as always, to accept a pacific understanding,  either by reiorrlng this question to the dcislou of  the International Tribunal of The Hague, or to the  - Great Powors which took part in the drawing up  of the declaration made by the Servian Government  on March 31, 1909.  Note of Austria on Servia's Reply  July 20.  The object of the Servian noto is to create the  false  impression  that the Servian  Government is  prepared in great measure to comply with our de- ���������  mands.  As a matter of fact, Servia's note is filled with  a spirit of dishonesty, which clearly lets it be seen-  that the Servian Government is not seriously determined Co put' culpable tolerance it hitherto has  extended to intrigues against the Austro-Hungarian  Monarchy.  The Servian note contains such far-reaching reservations and limitations not only regarding the  general principles of our action, but also in regard  to the individual claims we have put forward, that  the concessions,actually made by Servia become insignificant.      ���������    ��������� >  In particular our demand -for the participation  of the Austro-Hungarian authorities in the conspiracy on Servian territory has been rejected, while  our request that measures be taken against that  section of .-the Servian press hostile' to the Austro-  Hungary has-been declined, and our wish that the ,  Servian Government' take the necessary measures  to prevent the dissolved Austro-phobe associations  continuing their'activity under another name and  ' under another form has not even been considered.  : Since the claims to the Austro-Hungarian note of  ' July< 23, regard being had to the attitude hitherto  adopted by Servia, represent the minimum of what  is ,necessary for' the establishment of permanent  peace with the Southeastern Monarchy, the" Servian  answer must be regarded as unsatisfactory.       " ���������  Austria's Declaration of War Against Servia  <     July 28  The Royal. Government of Servia not having re-  plied in a satisfactory manner to the note remitted  r to it by the Austro-Hungarian Minister in Belgrade  on July'23, 1914, the Imperial and Royal Government finds itself compelled to proceed to safeguard '  its rights and interests and to have recourse- for  this purpose to force of arms.  '. Austria-Hungary considers itself, therefore,; from  this moment in a state of war with servia.  Note of th������ British Foreign Oifice on Belgian    ���������  "��������� Neutrality, August 4.  To the British Ambassador at Berlin:  We' hear that Germany has addressed- a note to  the  Belgian  Minister  for  Foreign  Affairs stating  that the German Government will be compelled to ���������  carry out, if necessary, by force of arms, theTiieas-  -   ures considered indispensable.    We are also inform-  ���������  ed that Belgian territory has been violated at'Gem-  - menich. .      '  In these circumstances-, and in view of the fact  that Germany declined to give the" same assurance   '  ��������� respecting Belgium -as Prance' gave last week in  reply to our request made simultaneously at Berlin and-Paris, we must repeat that request, and ask  -" that a satisfactory reply to. it and to our telegram  .   of-this, morning-be received here:. by  12- o'clock-  to:night.    If  not, you   are   instructed 'to  ask j for  ..your passports, and. to-   say ��������� that    His ��������� Majesty's ���������  Government feel bound-to take all. steps-in" their "  '  power to uphold th'e neutrality of Belgium and; the  -/observance  of a treaty to  which  Germany  Is - as  .'��������� much a party aspuselves.--..     ""'," '(>'    *  BRITAIN'S EFFORT FOR.PJRACE       \  Foreseeing all this, Sir Edward Grey, whos^ efforts during the recent Balkan wars had won' for .  for him the title of Peacemaker of Europe, !was  early in the field with proposals for averting war,  and the British Government" persisted to the very  last moment of the last hour in that great and  beneficent but unhappily frustrated purpose" (Mr.  Asquith).  Already on July 20th, having received an inkling of what ,was on foot, Sir Edward Grey spoke -  to the ^German ambassador of the importance, if  the peace of Europe was to be preserved, of Austria  "Keeping her demand within reasonable limits:"  The suggestion was not adopted. The German Foreign Secretary "considered it inadvisable that the  - Austro-Hungarian Gjvenunent should be approached by the German Government on the matter"  (July 22). The Austrian ultimatum, which the  same Minister "admitted that the Servian Government could not swallow," was despatched on the  following day. ������������������  On July 23, having heard from the Austrian Ambassador, an outline of what the Austrian note contained, Sir Edward Grey pressed upon him, as also .' f  upon the German Government, the desirability of  persuading the Austrian Government to extend its   ���������'  time-limit. The Russian  Government took the  same line. The German Ambassador was instructed to "pass on" Sir.Edward Grey's suggestion, but  the German Foreign Secretary said that "there  would be delay and difficulty in getting time-limit  extended," adding, "quite freely, that the Austro-  Hungarian Government wished to give the Servians  a lesson and meant to take military-action.'-'  On July 24, having received the text of the Austrian ultimatum, and foreseeing that if Austria attacked Servia Russia would mobilize, Sir Edward  G$ey proposed that "Germany, France, Italy, and  Great Britain, who had'not direct interests in Servia, should act together for the sake of peace, sim-'  ultaneously in Vienna and St. Petersburg," "in the  event of the relations between Austria and JRussia  becoming threatening." "It would be very desirable," he said to the German Ambassador, "to get  Austria not to precipitate military action and so  gain more time. But none of us could Influence  Austria in this direction unless Germany would  propose and participate In such action at -Vienna." \.  France was favorable to this plan. So was Italyi  Russia was "quite ready to stand aside and leave  the question in the hands of England, France, Germany and Italy." Having thus received assurances  that, if only Germany agreed his plan might be efficacious, Sir Edward Grey on July 26 formally ln-  (Continued on Page Four)  ^^^^^^^^w^^^^m^^^im^^^^mi^^^^^^^wwMmm vniS - ABBOTSFORD   POST ABBOTSFWei).

A study of the various religions of mankind forms a  wide field- of research and is known  as Comparative Religion.  The great religions have a literature, have books, but the smaller have  none? It-is relatively easy to study  and compare tho Book religions but  very difficult to be certain that the  beliefs of the tribes who have no  books are. Those can be ascertained only by living among them and  learning their ideas and customs. The  missionaries from Christian lands  have visited all parts of the world  and brought to light places and people that were entirely unknown before, for instance Livingstone in Central Africa. Religipns arc judged by  their effects on those who embrace  and profess them. Christianity is  judged superior to'all other religions  because of its effects-on the individuals, the famlilios, and nations who  call themselves .Christian and live  out its teachings. Heathen tribes have  been constantly at war with each other and many were cannibals. This  was the natural outcome of their  religions and political ideas. The  Christian nations now'at war are acting contrary to the teachings of their  founder, who is. properly called the  Prince of Peace. His Kingdom is  righteousness, and peace, and joy.  Unrighteousness is' the. cause of war  and not till"righteousness - prevails  can permanent peace be.secured in,a  human life, community or nation.  Mr. Charles .W.

(Continued ..from Page Three) ,  vitcd the governments of France, Germany and Italy to instruct their several ambassadors to confer with him  "for the purpose of discovering an  issuo-which would, prevent complications." The invitation was accepted  by France and Italy.- The' German  Foreign Secretary "could not fall in  with the suggestion, desirous though  he was to co-operate for the main-  enance of peace" (July 27)  , Sir Edward Grey thereupon saw  the German Ambassador (July 27)  and promised "as. long as Germany  would .work to keep peace I would  keep closely in touch. I repeated  that after the Servian reply it was  at Vienna that some moderation must  be urged." On the following ��������� day  (July 28) Austria-Hungary declared  war on Servia.  As the' German Government was  understood to have accepted in prin-'  ciple- the -idea of mediation by the  four Powers between' Austria and  Russia, it was proposed, "that the  German Secretary of State should sug  ^gest -the. lines on which this principle should be applied." The German  Government'made'no suggestion of  the kind. '  Sir "Edward .Grey's scheme had  temporarily been in' abeyance, as "the  Russian Government- had affered to  discuss matters with ' the Austrian  Government direct. This offer was declined by Austria (July 28).  . Sir Edwrd Grey next appealed to  the German Chancellor. "If he can  induce Austria" to satisfy Russia and  to abstain from going so far as to  come into collision with her, we shall  join in deep gratitude to his Excellency for having saved the peace of  Europe" (July 29). The Italian Gov  ernment had simultaneously ap  pealed to Germany in a like sense.  On that same day the German Government made certain proposals to  Great Britain to which we shall come  presently and which the Prime Minister afterwards characterized as "infamous." But so persistent was the  British Government " in' pursuit of  peace that Sir Edward Grey in declaring the proposals used language  of great restraint (July 30), and accompanied his refusal by yet another  "most earnest" appeal to the German Chancellor: "The one" way of  maintaining the good relations between England and Germay is that  the god relations between England  England and Germany should    con  tinue to work together to preserve  the peac0 of Europe; if we succeed in  this object, the mutual relations of  Germany and England will, 1 believe,  .bo ipso facto Improved and strengthened. For that object his,Majesty's  Governmont will work in that way  with all sincerity and good will. And  1 will say this: If tho peace of Europe  can b0 preserved, and tho present  crisis safely passod, my own endeavor  will be to promote some,arrangement  to which Germany could be a party,  i'by which she could be assured that  no aggressive or hostile policy would  be pursued against her or her allies  by France, Russia, and ourselves  jointly or separately."
