Gazley Block  Resolutions of  Orange Meeting  The Provincial Grand Orange  Lodge had a meeting at Penticton  last week, there being representatives  from   all over the province.  A number of very important subjects came up for discussion, includ-  ng National Service and conscription;  prohibition, and the exempting of the  church property from taxation  In the first case the members of the  grand lodge came out unanimously in  favor of the conscription of men and  wealth, provided tlie means adopted  by the National Service Board prove  inadequate to enable Canada to do  ���������her full share in the war. On the  question of probition, the delegates  took the stand that even if the soldiers' votes defeated the measure, the  liquor traffic should be supressed by  the government during the period of  the war.  On the question of church exemption there was a    dicusslon    of    the  subject from overy standpoint.    The  conclusion arrived at by    the    Grand  Lodge, however, was that the stand  taken by former grand lodges should;  bo reaffirmed and the position taken  that there should not be any exemp-j  tion, either In whole or in part, of" the  property owned by religious denom-l  hiatlous.    Every   speaker   eulogized,  tho members of   the   association   to |  increase  thoir  Individual  efforts  to j  support, tho denomination to    which |  they belonged; but they were unan-j  imous    in    their    opinion    that    the  churches should devise   some   other  way to relieve the situation than by  placing a special privilege upon the  statute book.    During the session a  motion expressing   the   appreciation  of the retiring Grand    Master,   R.W.  Bro. Henry Birmingham, was unan-  of the resolutions passed by the Grand  Lodge on the subjects mentioned.  "That the members of this Grand  Orange Lodge in annual session as-  imously passed. Following is a copy  sembled do heartily endorse the principle of National Service; and, provided the work undertaken by the  government in this respect proves inadequate to enable the Dominion of  Canada to do her full share in help  ing to win the war, then we endorse  the principle of conscription, believing that every able-bodied man in  Canada should be made to serve ac-  cordng to his ability in the crisis  which now confronts the Empire of  that the Dominion government be  requested to give the motherland the  full benefit of our resources, both in  men and wealth. And that the Grand  Orange Lodge of British Columbia do  pledge itself to do everything in its  power to help maintain the integrity  of the British Empire, and-preserve  the glorious heritage of freedom, liberty and justice ,which forms the bul-1  wark of her constitution."  The following resolution was also  passed with regard to the prohibition  of the liquor traffic, and a copy ordered to be forwarded to the Premier,  Hon. H.C. Brewster:  That, in view of the stand which  has always been taken .by this Grand  Lodge with regarded to prohibition, it  WATER NOTICE  Diversion and Use  TAKE NOTICE that the  ford Timber and Trading Co.;  whose address is Abbotsford, Li.

Over  in the state of-Washington rtlioy pass  a lot of freak 'legislation ' and yet  much of the legislation has many  good.points which it more properly  embodied in laws would be of benefit  to tho people of the community and  the state. ]  A few years ago they passed a law  that no alien could.hold laud in tho  suite, yert at tho some time that alien  could hold city property, while his  city property or business could be  confiscated, by the government at any  time a good reason could be fished  up. Reasons are almost always easy  if there is a real strong spite behind  ���������  them.  However there are two bills before  the Washington state Senate at the  present time that are worth considering.  One is the Metcalf. bill providing  for community help in clearing log-  ged-off lands. The bill differs in scvl  eral important particulars from tho  bill introducel b}r Senator Iverson  early in the session. Tho Metcalf  bill provides that any country may organize tlself into a development district and form a development board  to consist.of the county agriculturist  the county engineer and the auditor.  An owner of logged-off lands who has  a clear title may sell to the district  not to exceed forty acres of land, for  which ho will receive 55 an acre. The  board may thon spend $1,000 on the  land blasting out stumps, but. if more  is spent the ownor must put in an  equal amount. When the land is  cleared, it Is sold back to the former  owner on terniB which permit him to  pay the debt in ten to twenty years.  The Iverson bill proposed to issue  Improvement bonds.up to $2,000,000  which would be guaranteed by the  state. The Iverson bill, which had the  approval of. the logged-off land conference held in Seattle last December,  would.require an amendment to the  constitution. In voting for the Metcalf bill, Senator Iverson said  he regarded it as. a makeshift and in  adequate to meet the need of the  state.  son . ar-  to Join  AN.AMERICAN PROBLEM  The  people of  the   United   States  have a very serious question to con  elder, and it does not appear to hav  been taken fully into    consideration  By breaking off diplomatic relations  with  Germany the  Washington government has given deadly offence u  the Kaiser and his entourage.       An  actual declaration of war would not  materially alter thecase in this respect.    The United States has ranked  ' itself   with   the  adversaries  pf   Germany and may not count upon bein  forgiven  for so  doing.    We in   this.  country are confident of winning the  war, but we are none the less resolved to do what in us lies to bring a  bout that consummation; but we can  not expect the people of the United  States to share with us in that certainty.    Hence when we find the Chicago Tribune telling its   readers   that  they must contemplate the defeat of  the   British   Empire   and   its  Allies,  when they decide upon a policy for  their own country, we have no right  to object.    When the President broke  ff diplomatic relations with Germany  he committed the United States to a  course which may, in what we grant  ia a remote eventuality,  result in a  war single-handed  against  the  Teutonic Empire. Our contemporary says  that there is a probability, no mattei  how   remote,   that   the   British   fleet  may meet with disaster; that the sub  marine campaign may fulfil its yur-  the United  States would stand  con-  poses; that the Central Empires may  triumph on land.    In such an event  fronted with triumphant enemies, and  it* condition in such a case would bo  more serious than words can express.  Our contemporary doos    not    argue j  from this that the   President   ought  not to have taken the course he did,  but that a national honor demanded  that he should do so, national safety  now demands that the whole powor  ofthe country shall be put forth to  secure the overthrow of German power.    Unless tho United States is prepared to do this, the Tribune   thinks  the only alternative  is  to  apologise  to Germany, ask for a resumption of  diplomatic relations and   accept    the  decrees  of  Berlin  without  question.  This cannot be very pleasing reading  to many Americans, but it    is    some  thing that they cannot afford to over  look.-���������Colonist.  is moving with great success.  1.1 rooks (-and McVickers Shingle Mill  Co. of Upper Hatzic Prairio are gradually constructing the framework for  their new mill.

There were, present Sir  Edward Kemp, Sir Thos. White, Mr.  W.F. Nickle, M.P., representing the  the Hospital Commission, the Pension  Board and the Accountant Department of the Militia Department.  After a thorough discussion of tho  various matters under consideration  an unanamous agreement was reached as to the principles that should be  applied to secure tho greatest advantage to tho returned soldier or his  dependants, in order to avoid as, far  as possible any inconvenience being  caused cither to the returned soldiers  or to those dependent, upon them, by  therebeing a period within whieh  he or they would bcwithorU. either  pay or allowances or pension.  Kept on Strength  Hereafter no invalided soldiers will  be discharged from the Canadian  Expeditionary Force until a medical  board has certified that further treatment or hospital care will not impro  his condition,-or that it is advisable  that he should pass under his own  control. .When discharge has been  recommended ' on account of his  physical unfitness, discharge will  not be carried out until a notification  has been received from ' thePensions  Commission that the amount of  pension has been determined. The  noticewill ihake clear on what day the  pension will commence, and untill  that time pay and allowances will  be made to the soldier or those dependent upon him. The adoption  of this system insures, the disabled  no is the time for all good men and  man receiving his,       pension  immediately on his discharge, up to  which time his pay and allowances  will be continued. The . pension is  always paid monthly in advance.  Cases have occured in which, ow  ing to his desire to return home, or  owing to the difficulty of determining  his condition, members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force    have    been  prematurely discharged, and hitherto  provisions have been lackng permitting his subsequent return for hospital  treatment.      Hereafter if a    medical  board is    satisfied    that    subsequent  to his discharge the returned soldier-  requires treatment   for   a   disability  that was caused    or   aggravated    by  service,.the medical   board   may   recommend his being   reattested   as   a  member of the force,    and    if    such  recommendation is acted   upon,   any  pension formerly granted will be discontinued.    When a soldier has later  reached a condition   warranting    his  discharge, he will-be reexamined by  the medical    boardand    his    pension  determined according to his condition  and state of health at that time.  Dependents Left Helpless  In the event of soldiers    with    de-  pendantsbeing killed in action,dying  on active service or reported missing  assigned pay and    separation    allowance will    be    continued    untill   the  amount of pension and the day of its  commencement have been determined  by pension board.    Assigned pay and  separation allowance.will    cease   the  day pension begins,    the   dependents  immediately receiving the   first   pension in advance, and, in the   case   of  wives and childen, in    addition,    the  the two months gratuity.       Further  provision  has     been    made    giving  authority to the    pension    board    to  have assigned    pay   and    separation  allowance cease when those interest  ed are unreasonably dilatory in filing  the ncessary proofs to   lead   to    the  granting of   a pension.  The above recommendations  have  now been embodied in   an    order-in--  council and will go into effect at once.  _  AT   THE    FRONT.  i  TKKEE-VEAI  a'iA aa. i xa__ n _:jawf-_,  _-\T /"-Th ffy  Rdfi_.Kft-$(irE.MC  Anm^rjasatSMStMWKtautm  Kb? est i  mmMZ&T2*S!amui*wiP\JB>*Vixin*sBMn*r-nm  $  25.00  50.00  100.00  INDIVIDUAL PURCHASES  LIMITED TO 5150D.

Owing to an  unavoidable break clown of the auto  that conveyed the speakers from Ham  mond the meeting was late 'in commencing but thoso who waited heard  a very interesting and instructive  discourses on tho culture and marketing of the Bmall fruits.  Mr. McTaggart, the first speaker,  dwelt on the importance of the grow  er. having representation on tho  prairie markets. He informed tho  growers that they would have to bo  more Indepondeut of government support as ".the government intonded to  cut down all agriculture appropriat-  lonn.    He   dwelt   at   length   on   the  value of advertising their products to  i.-iake them attractive to the prairie!  ! consumer  and   thereby   increase   tin-:.  . domand.    Stating that the competit-  ' ion  on  tho Winnipeg market  would  j be hardor he urged the grower to ap-  poal to tho patriotism of the consum-  j er ."(. that point.     Every fruitgrower  ! should  contribute  one  cent per  box  | for advertising in order to counteract  ! on tho extensivo advertising that was  ��������� being  planned  out by  the Ameriea.n  ! competitors.     McTaggart's idea is to  put the B in boost and make the B.  C, fruits the best known and biggest  consumed fruit on the prairie markets  In answer to a question Mr. McTaggart pointed out that'tho fruit growers need never be seriously alarmed  over the prairies producing any negligible quantity of fruit.    In  reply  to a question regarding small return?;  on rhubarb,  he advised  the growern  to advertise this commodity thorough  ly and remedy a sluggish demand.

In regard to the Jam industry, he stated  that it would probably be throo or  four years after the war was over before the high prices for jam would be  back to normal.  In answer to a question he thought  that two years cropping tor strawberries would be a maximum.  Mr. Boving of the University of B.  C.

John Oliver, Minister o  Agriculture, in an interview at    Victoria, states that his Department will  give special attention to    the    potato  industry.    As a first step, the Departmental organization for the   purpose  is changed somewhat, so that all   potato work will be under the direction  of the   Horticulture   branch   of   the  Department of Agriculture. The minister proposes such an aggressive and  sustained campaign as will   help,  towards placing the industry on a proper footing.  The immediate problem is an adequate supply of go^seed potatoes.  A certain shortage exists, undoubtedly . It is due, partly to the fact  that the growers have, in years past,  been inclined to neglect ordinary  precautions of good clean land,  with the result that there was more  diuea.se in the 1916 crop than oyer  before, while the yield peracre is below ths most profitable average, lhe  trouble in accentuated because tlie  export demand, took a-big share o  the 1915 crop, and a still larger part  of that last season, including muci  that should have been kept for seed,  the shortage is more acute because  many growers are to get new and  clean stock.  The minister has encouraged the  export trade, because exports mean  money; and money coming in spells  prosperity. B.C. potatoes have made  '-nod in Australia, in the Prairies and  leads, in the United States. Tins  trade can continue only with clean  and high grade potatoes, which in the  past season were only about ^0 per  Ontario und.by the hundreds of car-  cent of the crop.  It is Mr. Oliver's opinion, based on  the statistics of the potato supply  still remaining, that the good stock  silll available should be kept in the  Province for seed, or that, in other  words, the holders of high-grade  stock should give our own province  first call on it. To facilitate this, he  offers the service of the Department  to put sellers and' buyers in touch  with each other. In writing the Department, sellers should state variety,  nuality. size and price. Buyers shoukl  similarly state their requirements.  All correspondence should be addrcoS-  cd: Horticultural Branch, Dept . oL  Agriculture, Victoria. .  * To get potato growers started right  on seed-selection and disinfection,  practical demonstrations will be given  throughout the Province by "cpait-  went experts during the latter part, of  March and early April-.

If  will  readily  figures indicate  crease in crop duo to the disease,  since, in Lhe held in question, only a  slight difference could be ohsorvod  by us before tho actual counting and  weighing was done, it is highly pro-  bablo that the growers are apt. to  suffer a great deal more than they  suspect by the presence of this disease.  " The disease appears to pass the  winter in two ways: (.1) in tho field  in the soil or in old plant remains;  (.2) in the seed bed. The first does  not. seem to be of serious importance  but it is not advisable to grow tomatoes on land where the mosaic dis  ease has been bad during the previous year. Seed hod infection., on  the other hand, seems to be responsible for all the bad cases of the  disease yet seen. The common practice of adding new soil to that ol  the old tomato seed is what, causes  the trouble, since the disease germs  still linger in the old soil. Danger'  irom this cause can readily be a-  voided by completely changing the  seed bed soil as soon as, the  ease appears in the held.  ! carded soil is apparently haimless  I for  other   plants.  ! A more extended account of this  disease has been given in the Central Experimental Kami Reports ot  ���������1915 and 1916.

This is the astounding statement  made to me the other day by a neutral military attache with the German  Army who has just come from German Headquarters on urgent private  business to London for a few days.  What I say is a fact" he continued.  "If the Hohenzollern dynasty is to be  overthrown, Hindenburg is the man  who will overthrow it, and before  the war is over you may see Plind-  enburg the first President of the  United German States Republic."  I expressed my anxiety to hear  his reasons for this astonshing forecast of events.  RIPE FOR REVOLT  "Well" explained the attache,"you  see, Germany is ripening for a revolution. That you have heard; but Germany is riper for revolt than many  people imagine.    It   is   not   merely  that the mass of the people are suffering greatly, and are growing daily  more anxious for peace. However  great, their suffering and- discontent,  the masses in Germany would never  dare break into open revolt. There  might be riots ,but these would easily  be quelled by the military authorities.  "But It is not the masses alone who  are discontented in Germany. The  wealthy middle class'are in an even  groatcr state of anger and relentless-  no-is than the masses. Now, wealthy  merchants and bankers are not ��������� the  sort of persons to sit tamely down  and watch their businesses rapidly  dwindling away without making  themselves heard. I happen to know  that a couple of weeks ago there was  a privite meeting of some of the  most influential commercial and business mon of Berlin.  "The gathering was held at the  house of Herr Ballin, the great filliping magnate. Herr Ballin is one of  the Kaiser's most intimate friends,  but Herr Ballin is also a "business  man, and his vast    private   interests  ABBOTSFORD,  i_i eroiry raspwrt.

"'Our loyalty to the Emperor has  cost us half'our fortune, already," ho  said. Wo shall not allow it. to ��������� cost  us the other half." A resolution was  passed at the meeting v to send the  followng message , to the Kaiser,  which reached him at headquaters  whilst there: "Win the war or end  the war."  THE ONE MAN  "And if the Kaiser won't win the  war and won't end it, you mean that  there will be a revolution in Germany?" I suggested to   the   attache.  "Wait," he replied, "for a moment.  I am coming to that. I believe that  there would be a revolution in Germany .tomorrow but to the one fact���������  that no revolution in any country,  least of all in Germany , is possible  that is not supported, .by the army,  and. the only man who the Army  would follow in a revolt against the  Emperor .would be Hindenburg.  "Von Hindenburg is at the pinnacle of his popularity.,, He is the idol  of the German people.' For everyone  who displays a Kaiser button on his  coat twenty wear .a Hindenburg button. All the successes that have attended the German.arms���������and these  successes have, of course, been magnified tenfold in their completeness  and importance to. the German people���������have been scored by the German idol. And if Hindenburg is an  idol to the civil population- in Germany, he is something even more to  the rank and file of the German army.  To the soldiers he is something like  a god. Officers of the German Headquarters have told me that when  messages from Hindenburg to the  troops are read to them on parade  they are received with the wildest  cheering, whilst messages from their  King-Emperor are now often received with no greater demonstration  than the official salutes that must  be made when a message is given to  the sildiers from the Kaiser.  HINDENBURG WAS THERE  "This popularity of Hindenburg���������a  popularity far greater than the Kaiser ever posssscd���������is a most significant thing, and its significance has  not been lost on the Kaiser and the  Imperial Family. Its significance  consists of the fact that it makes a  revolution possible provided it is led  by Hindenburg.  "Up to a couple of months ago  there was not a shadow of reason to  suspect that Hindenburg was not as  he still pretends to be���������the most  zealous, loyal, and devoted officer  of his Emperor. Just-now I told you  of a meeting of merchants and bankers held at Herr Ballin's house. Well  two days later a few of them met  again at - the residence of Herr  Kruniper, a wealthy banker and a  noted Republican leader. The meeting was strictly private, and what  exactly took place is not known; but  I heard on the most reliable authority that Hindenburg was present, and  that tho prospect of a revolt against  tho Hohenzollern dynasty and tho establishment of a Ropublic in Germany was definitely discussed.  "That the Kaiser heard of Hlnden-  bur'gs presence at this.meeting is certain, and he was promptly summoned  to the royal presence to explain his  presence at a meeting at the house of  a notorious Republcan.  "I was told by an equarry who was  present at the Interview between the  old general and his Emperor that the  former apparently satisfied tho Kaiser by saying, with a laugh: "Your  Majesty, Herr Krumper the banker is  a friend of mine.  I know nothing of Herr Krumper the  Rpublican.  "But," said the equerry, "I will tell  you this .nuch���������the Kaiser was not  satisfied with this explanation, and  he is now watching Von Hindenburg  as closely as a cat watches a mouse.  You may see Hindenburg dismissed  from the army any day.  WHAT MAY HAPPEN  "And if Hindenburg goes there will  be no revolution?" I said, as the attache paused.  "Nut linden burg won't go," replied  tho attache, "for the simple! reason  that the Kaiser would now hi! afraid  to dismiss him. It might precipitate  a. revolution. IJut the l.mporor knows  now quite well tho danger .that ihre'i-  tons the Hohenzollern dynasty. As  affairs now stand, that, danger will bo  come imminent should even a partial  collapse of the Gorman resistance occur on tho Western front. That  would give Hindenburg and the Republicans the opportunity that they  are now waiting for.'  "And then?" I asked.  "To the German people Hindenburg could, in event of-a collapse on  Western front," replied the attache,  "present himself as the man who  could not only have avoided defeat,  but could have achieved victory, only  he was hampered and interfered with  by the Emepcror. In such circumstances Hindenburg .might lead a  complete and immediatelyl snccosr.lul  revolt against the Imperial dynasty.  "Remember, onco a revolution starts  it spreads like wildfire, and directed  by a ruthless leader like Hindenburg,  a<revolt in Germany against ths Hohenzollern dynasty would be carried  out with a completeness that would  almost be certain to involve the execution of the Emperor. Such a revolution, however, would not mean an  immediate collapse of the German resistance.  Hindenburg would probably  utter morn than a few words to the  troops, and then road .off, bidding  lU-Kleirbiirg accompany him. Hin-  dinilnirg was also to havo addressed  fh'o troops, but the Kaiser would not  permit him to do so.  "In tho decline of his popularity  wilh Iho Army the Kaiser sees the  whole foundation on which his dynasty depends, crumbling away. In  the popularity of.his general with tho  troops ho sees sign of a new power  that will replace the Hohenzollerns."  "Certainly,"'said the disagreeable  bachelor, "Otherwise they would be  alive yet."  gE_]_TIiH_I^^  ft  J  . H. JONES  Funeral Director  Furnisher of Funeral Supplies  Phoce Connection.
