F  The. following letter from the provincial secretary of the Canadian  Patriotic Fund is worthy of your  perusal:  Kc Revision of Grants    ...  Victoria,   Nov   21st.  Dear Sir:  The national executive has authorized the new schedule which follows,  to be effective from the first of November. It may also be pointed out  that the Militia Department has decided to increase the Separation Allowance to the dependents of all privates and non-commissioned officers  to $30 per month. This, together  with assigned pay will amount to  $45   per   month.  Childless wives and widowed  mothers without children .remain as  before on the $10 basis. Widowed  mothers with children ' who were  prior to the soldier's enlistment solely dependent, may be placed upon  the same basis as a wife with children. Therefore, the grant to wives  or widowd mothrs, solly d-ependent,  with children, is placed at $20 per  month instead of $17.50 as formerly  and grants will in future be paid on  account of each child according to  age.   as!  follows: i  Up to five years, $4 per month;  between 5 and 10 years, $6; between  10 and 15 years, $!). The former  plan of only paying one the maximum  one the medium and the others at  the minimum has been done away  'with. Each child is to bo paid on  the basis of its age, according to  the  schedule  given.  In the case of children at school,  the age limits may be extended for  bos to 16 and girls to 17 years of  age.  No Deductions  Deductions on account of earnings  by members of the familyl. In future  $4 0 may be allowed as exempt and 5 0  per cent of the balance is to bo taken  account of in fixing grants.  All other rules and regulations  which have been in effect during the  past year are to be continued.  The usual deduction on account of  free house rent and other sources of  income will, of course, be taken account  of as  formerly.  As many of the cases have been in  effect for 2, 3 and 4 years, children  who came on the Fund at the time  the application was taken around the  ages of 13 and 14 should be carefully  investigated and where they have  passed the age limit, such children  must be deleted from the grant.  Re .Maximum Grant  The maximum grant to any family  from the Fund which was formerly  placed at $45 has been raised to $50  and in no case may a grant be paid  to any family in excess of $50 no  matter how many children there may  be. .  Ko Contributions  I am directed by the national executive, when sending this circular  letter to request all committees to con  tinue their best efforts in maintaining collections up to ��������� and including  the  31st of  March  next.

Bring  the birds to t he show on Wednesday  night or early on Thursday morning  as everything must be ready for the  judge by 10 a. m.

A separate entry Is not necessary  for any special except special No. ii,  when it must be stated that thc cock,  hen, cockrcl and pullet were bred by  the exhibitor.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1918  Give The Definition  There is so much talk about the freedom of  the seas these days that one would like to  have it definitely' stated what this means ex-  acfly. 'We confess we are unable to say just  exactly what it means.  There was a time, however when the seas  were free���������Lthat is before the day of the great  British navy, when any ship so inclined had  thc opportunity of taking another's cargo���������  the day when the weaker vessel was the victim of the larger. The Spanish will tell us  all about us."Were those the times of the freedom of the seas?   ' '    ���������  There was also a time after the European  Avar'of a hundred years ago when the British  navy and the British were busy, when they  tell us there was some sea piracy.  Or does it mean when the seas were patrolled by the British navy and every vessel large  and small had'the privilege of trading on .the  seas without molestation, so long as it minded its own business1?  bilityof war as a method of regulating., the affairs of mankind. Nobody disputes-their-text  that it would be much better-if. all the brethren were to dwell together.-in, peace.  - But nowhere, as yet, has there been ;any real  attempt to answer the practical questions ��������� involved. The world already possesses a league  of nations of considerable potency. The only  people standing absolutely outside of it are  those of the Central Empires.  Therefore, when the proposition for a  league of nations is analyzed, it is found to  be little more than a claim that Germany's  conduct should be forgotten and she should  be treated as though she were absolutely  trustworthy.  This will not be done by the, present generation. The affairs of the world for many years  must be based on the assumption that Germany needs watching. It may be found possible to set up tribunals for the settlement of  international differences among peoples who  are prepared to keep faith with each other,  but a league which included Germany would  have treachery at its very foundation and  would quickly become a curse to the world  instead of a blessing.���������Vancouver Sun.  An Ciuvisc Ulterauce  R is reported the other day that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier at London in referring to the Germans  said that they were "One of the- noblest races  on earth." It may have been that he was incorrectly reported, but the saying has not been  denied that we have heard'of.. Is this the  same Laurier whom"we were all so proud of  when he went to the Queen's' Jubilee ;in 1897.?  That was the time when many Liberals were  of opinion that our Canadian representative  shone head and shoulders above all other representatives from the colonies and Canada  was proud of him. Twenty years afterwards  he makes the above reference to the enemy  that has caused Canada's sons to bleed on the  held of battle, and caused the heartaches at  home. Can it be that through all these years  he had such treacherous thoughts in his head?  No wonder that the-other day^the Liberal  announcement came out that Canada's popular war leader was to become the leader 'of  the Liberal party! Little wonder that the  Liberals would want to throw the veteran  leader in the discard.    It is to their credit.  Jitney Missing in Vancouver  Visitors to Vancouver now see a change in  the streets.- ,The jitney is apparently gone  and country -people are not so apt to get run  over when-crossing the :strets.-  ���������The tourist to Vancouver,-mow, sees, that  ���������capital 'is having a better chance. Perhaps  the jitney should never have been there.  Says Proportional Bepresentation Popular  Elsewhere we publish an article on Proportional Representation from our old friend who  fathered it for Mission Municipality. He  says "You will have noticed that Turkey is  crazy over "P. R." since the British fleet arrived off Golden Horn." Elsewhere we read  that Premier Oliver said that "He was in favor of the principle of proportional representation." Now you have two great authorities  on proportional representation���������the Turks  and our Premier.  Incidentally it might be mentioned that our  Mission council have made no move to  rescind the motion which gave Mission thisr  form of municipal election for the district  last year. The matter has of course been discussed but it is altogether likely that another  trial will be given for the 1919 election.  Its different with some councillors���������you  know the ones we mean? The one who will  take the last two votes of another candidate  and elect himself, even if a lady is concerned.  A Legacy From Laurier  Sir Charles Ross  is making trouble.    He  demands of the Canadian people nearly $19,-  000,000 for the expropriation of the Ross rifle  factory in Quebec.    Of   this,    $10-000,000    is  claimed for the abrogation of an improvident  contract made by the Laurier Administration.  That contract bound the   Canadian   government not to buy rifles elsewhere until the full  output of the Ross plant had been bought, arid  until the Ross Company   had   received    six  months' notice for the expansion of its works.  The Ross rifle was condemned in  the field.  Ministers expropriated the plant at a valuation of $3,000,000 and washed their hands of  Ross and all his works.    In these times The  Globe is talking of all the benefits conferred  upon the nation by the Liberal party.      The  benefit of the Ross rifle contract was one that  the country could patiently forego.    Perhaps  the loss of some other of these benefits could  be endured with fortitude.���������Toronto .-Newa.  The Good Farmer's Creed  ���������Nowthat the New Year is-coming around  again the time for, good resolutions seems  very high at.hand. The other day we came  across "the following:,  : I believe in a permanent agriculture, a,soil  that shall grow richer rather than poorer  from ��������� year to year.  . I believe in 100-bushel oats- and in 50-bush-  el wheat, and I shall not be satisfied with anything.less.  I believe that the only weed is a dead weed,  and that a clean farm is as important as a  clean conscience.  ��������� I believe in the farm boy and in the farm  girl, the farmer's best crops and the futures  best hope.  I believe in the farm woman.,and  all in -my power to make her life easier arid  happier.  j believe in a country school that prepares  for country life, and a country, church that  teaches its people to love deeply and live honorably.  I believe in community spirit, a pride, in  home and neighbors, and I will do my.part to  make my community the best in: the Province.  I believe in the farmer, I believe in farm life  I believe in the inspiration of the open country.  I am proud to be a farmer, and I will try to  be worthy of the name.���������Frank I. .dVlann.

Switzerland Adopts P. R..  According to press dispatches from  Berne, Switzerland adopted proportional representation for the election  of her federal council or parliament  at a special election, held under the  provisions for the constitutional initiative, on October 14th. The vote,  in round numbers, is reported to have  been 297,000 to 147,000.  The last popular vote on this issuo  in Switzerland was taken in October  1919. 'At that time. P. R. lost by.a-  bout 25,000 votes.  A comparison of the vote of the  1918 with that of 1910 is special significance because .the Swiss had during the eight .years the best opomin-  ities of observing the workings of. P.  R. in cantonal elections of nearly halt  of the twenty-two cantons'.  The system of P. R. used in-Switzerland ist-hat.of the party list. '���������.

Among the many recent books of war experiences. "The Real  Front," by Arthur Hunt Chute,  has   particular   interest   for   Canadians,   aa   the  author, although an American citizen,  went overseas with the first Canadian Expeditionary Force  and for two years was in the Ypres Salient.    "If  where an  Englishman,"  he says, "is burled  In a  foreign soil Is called 'a little bit of England,' then  we  may  call   the   Ypres  salient a  mighty  bit  of  Canada.    If anyone  were to  Inquire what Is the  most Important city of Canada, we might answer  unhesitatingly, 'The city of Ypres.'   The hosts of  ������ur young men  who have fallen In battle around  that city have hallowed the name for all Canadian  hearts, and rendered the place ours in tho deepest j  oense."  Mr. Chute suggests In a wonderful way the  atmosphere of the actual fighting line and the  psychology of the men while under fire, their nervous strain reaching at times to physical agony  and yet their unconquerable determination to  "carry on."

It was therefore c  wise decision on the  part of the bominion  Government when  they i" cided that the  Canadian Railway  War Board should  appoint a committee  that will make all the arrangements necessary for the transportation of the  soldiers through Canada.  The War Board so constituted the committee that it is representative  of the three principal Canadian railways. K'--er since the,beginning of the  war officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway have been conspicuous as  leaders in the country's patriotic efforts, and now Lieutenant-Colonel Walter  Maughan, Assistant General Passenger Asent of the C. P. R., has been  chosen as chairman of th������ committee that is to "undertake the responsibility  for the train transportation of the soldiers to their places of abode in  Canada. Lieutenant-Colonel Maughan's long experience and his thorough  knowledge of railroad affairs make him thoroughly-qualified'to.fill the position for which he has bean selected.  In March, 1892, at the age of sixteen years, Walter Maughan joined tho  ataff of the Canadian Pacific Railway as a clerk in the Toronto offices. In  September of the same year he was transferred to Hamilton to act in a  similar capacity. In 1895 he was again brought hack to the Toronto  offices, and in March. 1897, he became city passenger agent in the Queen  City. On November 1st, 1913, he became assistant district passenger agent  In Toronto. One month later he was promoted to become assistant general  passenger agent in Montreal.  Lieutenant-Colonel Maughan Is representing the C..P. R- on the newly  formed committee. Mr. H. H. Melansnn- will represent the Canadian  Government Railways, and Mr. C. W. Johnston the Grand Trunk Railway.  By a co-ordination of effort it is believed that the representatives of the  three big Canadian railways can so regulate railway transportation arrangements as to Insure Che safe and comfortable return of the Canadian soldier  rr.en to their homes, f The headquarters of the committee will be In Ottawa,  ���������where the committee will be in direct touch with the Canadian Government.  A preliminary meeting of the committee was recently held in Montreal,  whsn the Minister of Militia was represented by Colonel R. E. Clarke,  Director General of Supplies and Transnor'aUcn. The problem ef transportation was discussed in all its phases, and the committee will leave nothing  undone to ensure safe transit, and feeding facilities of the highest ohar,  acter for the Canadian soldier men who so bravely answered, to, t&9 CftU ������J  duty when the country was in danger,  Farmers' and Travelers  trade solicited.  irnished  Thoroughly Modern  MURPHY,   PROPRIETOP  HUNTINGDON, B   C.
