If you COULD k (although, OP COURSE, you  can't) stop every man you meet on the streets  asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"  (Or any other kind of goods) You might find  half a dozen who would say "Yes." Perhaps not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer-  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

No ono who is digging into tho  intimacies oL' this war will over get  down  to tho proper foundations  for  judgment of it unless  ho takes into  account  what 'preceded   the  war,  as  well as tho war itself., by land and  by sea.    That is the German question  the,Hun question, as it is presented  in this war as a two-sided one. Long  'before any cannon spoke on the limits of Belgium or in the confines of  France, many many years before that  probably forty or fifty ears, the German scheme of domination of Europe  and conquest of the world began and  was formulated, and for the last 2 5  or 30 years has been    being    worked  out' with a uniformity  and  tenacity  of  purpose, with an ingenuity    and  wideness of organization that was not  guessed or conceived of by even those  who   were  most   intimate   with   the  world occurrences, and it has taken  two "years ��������� oi\ the  Avar  to     convince  students of civilization and thinkers  just what was niea]:/ by the economic  co'iitiuission' Germany started.twenty-  five years ago..It was a commission of-  peaceful penetration during which in  countries closeely contVuous and any  countries widely distant her grip and  her coils fastened 3-ear by. year with  greater tenacity and    with    greater  wideness of  grip   upon   whatever  in  any   country  made   for   the   Fatherland's future advancement   and    triumph    In that way she gained    on  contiguous countries, - on the    whole  world, a social, educational, commercial,  financial,  diplomatic  and,  to  a  certain exteent,   political   hold,    the  strength ami power of which was only known when war commenced    l.o  rend associations asunder and show  the links she had  fastened in    that  chain.    Economically speaking,  Holland was rapidly becoming a suburb  of  Germany,  Sweden    and    Norway  were almost in the same position, and  Denmark was largely influenced while  Switzerland and Italy    were    placed  under her financial yoke.      , Russia,  strong and powerful as she was, had  to submit time and time again to the,  commercial and   treaty   demands   of  Germany, although she.hated to do it,  and when war broke out large portions of Russia were    more  ' German  than Russian in  business,  commercial, productive and financial matters,  and even in language.    It is almost  impossible for one to grasp the power  of these subtle influence.     In the centre   of   London .it   established   itself  and its influence is felt in the centre  of  London to  this  very  hour  I  am  speaking to you, and    when    peace  comes to be made that influence will  come where it will be felt, and will  have to be grappled with, will have  to be strangled.    Australia woke up  to the fact, when war broke out and  she wanted some metals to put into  the melting pot for ammunition purposes���������woke up to the fact that the  German had coralled    these    metals  and that contracts were existing     in  some cases for fifteen    and    twenty  years that were made for the supply-  to Germany of the metals which were  especially necessary for warlike purposes, and it was only by simply pouring contempt on the old ideas of property rights and contract rights and  OUK LONDON LETT Hit  I saw the finest bonfire of my life  on Sunday morning last'about 2:30  a. m.-live minutes after it had pass-  tl.ovor my house, with shells bursting  all around it. One of the now ouper-  Zoppolins was set on fire at an altitude of .10,000 feet by shots from  an aeroplane. The blaze only lasted  a'few minutes but lit up the sky for  hundreds of square miles.' It could  be seen from every part of London  and   twenty  miles-around.  While dropping the frame work  drifted four miles. I could have got  plenty of souvenirs from it, but that  sort of thing doesn't-appeal to me.  I am a collector of beautiful things  but there is no beauty in Zeppelins.   ���������  i went into the house for a few  moments and just as 1 got inside I  leard a tremendous clapping of hands  and cheering I came out immediately and there, high up-in the heavens  was this gigantic bon-fire of oil and  gas and wood���������one flame must have  been over 10 0 0 feet in length. I did  not clap���������I had not cheer. I felt  .bitter,      . -.- ��������� ,     -���������  People shook hands with one another, aiid sang the ��������� National Anthem and the Dpxology: "What a horrible' death!"  They  are   burying   the" crew,   (or  rather the charred fragments of the  crew.      That    is    our-    way.     ,1 believe if the Kaiser and his crew -had  been on board 1 could have joined in  The British Empire has been going  through it, and it is 'coming out oh  top.    We' have paid' and are paying  a fearful price for a decent existence  for humanity.    While    neutral    nations ha-"-f.' been growing fat and putting  up with all sorts of attack because it paid them.    The end is uof  yet, but it is not very far off. When  the Doxology.  it, is reached the historian can get  on with his tale, and if he tells the  whole story the British Empire wil<  be hailed as the saviour of- the civilization of the world, and be found  to be greater than ever it was. Some  others may look correspondingly  small. We shall want re-organizing  The Empire must be treated as a  whole. Colonial parliaments must  have representations.at Westminster.,  Banded together in the arts ,in commerce, in peace, we shall still lead  the world, and lead it in such a  that the Armageddon of today  not   be   repeated.

South Africa the Union of all the  States in British South Africa, lay  contiguous to Germaan territory, a  neighbor full of propositions of amity  yet during all these years promoting  anti-British and Pro-German feeling  ���������teaching treason in the schools of  South Africa For a country that  would do that towards a neighbor, it  is not a large step forward to come  to  poisoning wells.  And so, without going any further  this is the thing which has to be  borne in mind���������the economic peaceful penetrative commission that was  so superbly added to and so ingeniously arranged in methods and so  tirelessly pursued in a way which as  many thinkers today say and believe,  (Continued      on   Pago Two)  we adopt a Prisoner of War' Hither  to we have sent in many donations  to that fund in general, but we feel  now that wre should like to work  with the particular idea of helping  'our Prisoners'  It was also decided to send a collection of vegetables and fruit to the  Columbian Hospital  Mrs. Ferguson gave a Scotch Short  Bread demonstration, which  was not  only watched but the members were  able to taste later on beefore they  parted company and therefore could  vouch for its being first3-class  The Intitu'e also planned to hold  another Hallowe'en Entertainment  the actual date to be fixed later.

So much with reference to that. Jt  ��������� was not a tinio Just lileo tho prosonl;  when  wo  went into  that conference  things  wore  not  as   bright as   (.hey  soom now.    Out of that seething vortex had risen maolstroni aftoi' mael-  Btrom   of   unpreparednoHB   in   vhich  Great Britain and  lior Allies found  tbemselvos in August 3 9.14..   Kadi of  them in two years time had gradually  beon ovolving, hut had not yot por-  foctod   ��������� preparations    which , would  place the allied forcos on a footing of  oquality to wage war against an enemy which was prepared at tho outset    But in that  two years of preparation on all thoso    long    fighting  linos from Flanders to Switzerland, a-  long tho Italian and Austrian front-  tlors, up from the Baltic and through  by   which   imports   to   your   country  niu.si. !)<��������� regulated to about your own  nocouHii i(.'s. iind you and yourgovern-  nien 1.- must bo responsible that nothing got through "' .1.1 you don't do that  ���������it may bo a stretch of iniurnational  law,   but  to  international     law    wo  might sometimes .say. go hang, iflt is  a question of our life or death.    But  Britain did not have to say that, slio  had usage in her favour.'   Jt is lawful, by international law., because it  is nocessary to mako it effectivo.  It'  you cannot bo roveeting it at sea,you  must make it offoctual, by arrangement with noutral powers that they  shall not allow contraband and goods  supplied to como into tho land of the  Hun.  This  has  taken  placo..  There  was no difllcuUy with the blacklists,  they are in operation in Great Britain  and Franco;  they aro now in operation in.all tho Allied countries, and  at this niomont there Is a cordon tiod  around Germany, Austria    and    Bul-  tho Balkans,  with  sporadic fighting sm'l'i through which very littlo gets  in almost*.ovory part of tho -world  ���������during all that time what was'being  accomplished was this���������tho holding  of the enemy until wo wore proparod  to fight him.. Thus at Paris, when  that conforonco was on wo wero not  prepared then; thero wpro certain  clouds in' he- sky that had not boon  from thoso surrounding counti'ios,  and ovory day the cordon is bolng  drawn  tighter.  '  Thou caino another phaso of tho  question which was vory important���������  what should be tho action of ho Allies in what is known as the porlod and especially Germany? So that is  ,of reconstruction? Look at'Belgium | what is mount by a period of recon-  dispelled; Kitchoner's sad doath wasja pcoplo of soven millions restricted' structionsj as I havo outlined to you  hanging   over   us;   four   months   of'now for government purposes    and very briefly  fighting had been going on at Verdun possession to a little bit of a strip up '     But after ���������   reconstruction    thero  and  yot the British Allies  wero not  ju (,|]0 northern part    of    Flandora;  otrictive.    Tho objective aimed at is  this���������that during,the period of reconstruction  enemy goods shall  not  be  allowed in the countries of the Allies.  In Ottawa sometimes we have done  this���������whilst we do not trade with the  onomy, whilst we have not allowbd a  single man. of our country to  trado  with the enomy, whilst wo have not  alowed German goods into his country,  still  if there  was   (and  unfortunately   there   was)   any   ono   thing  which was absolutely necssary as an  ingrediont in  the public interest to  allow   Canada,   we   havo   sometimes  allowed that to como in in a rncas-'  uro through  tho- United  States    for  our own  use and good.    But thero  havo been very serious moditations in  the British mind; tho insular Briton  lias grown vory wise; tho quostlon is  a foremost question,.todayin tho old  ISinpiro head and contrc���������why is It  that in any. one singlo thing an hhn-  plro  like  ours should  bo absolutely  depondont upon  Germany?   Is  thoro  not  within  tho  limits  of    our own  countries and Empire, if wo had gono  to work to examine our resources, is  thoro not sulllciont to mako us Independent, absolutely, for thoso necessary  things,' of  any  enomy  nations,  ains. ��������� There is no crime that, ��������� she  has not done, and the worst of it is  that from the bishop to the cathedral; down to-the artisan, through-lecture '. hall, through universities,  through commercial organizations,'  through home and through individuals, every barbarity she has commit-  tod in the name of the war has been  saluted in  Germany by the /lying of' ���������-; r���������.  flags, the giving of iron crosses and!

These were the circumstances under  which we met, and yet in all these  reresentatives here was no doviation  not a hint or suggestion of anything  olso than seeing the matter through  to tho end .and having a complete  victory.  The deliberations of that body divided themselves all along three lines  First, what was to be done while the  wan-was on���������that waa comparatively  easy.    What as to bo done while the  war was on was vory well known by  Great Britain in practice, may be as  well known by the other Allies, but  with larger difficulties    and    groaer  hesitation a3  to the practice.    That  conferonce  brought     to   the     Allies  knowledge   of   unison   on   that  line,  and what was to be done while tlie  war was  on caused  little consideration.    It was easy to come to a decision.    What was to be clone was for  every allied power to  prevent their  subjects dealing with enemy subjects  Belgium itself under tho powor of-the  Hun, not simply dominatod by the  Run, but ravaged by tho Hun, burned  by the Hun, looted by the Hun, with  no rospect towards international  right or international law tho vessels of productive powrer, machinery  and otherwise as a result have been  grasped by the German and aro being deported to his own country,and  you may take my prophecy for'what  it is worth, but as the Hun is driven  back- little by little, league by league,  by and by, it may be more rapidly  than we anticipate���������what he leaves  in Belgium and the tenth of France  that he posseses today will be what  he cannot carry out,nothing more will  be left. The machinery, the productive material, anything that is in  store has long since gone, or if it remains it will be used, by the Germans. That is Belgium, when the  war is over will be economically decentralized; all its power of product  on with nine-tenths of its wealth will  have disappeared. Now the Allies'are  bound to see that Belgium is reconstructed;   you see what that means.  comos to be tho question of goneral  policy. Now, in a fow words a conclusion was reached on this���������that every country should make diligent  and efficient soarch through her domains,and wherever thero was a commodity necessary to the nation, the  first claim on that product is in the  nation itself; the second upon that  that product was in the hands of the  Allied Nations who had not the same  within their own borders, and these  should be satisfied first. After that,  if there was any overplus left, it  vent them having part and parcel in  your.trade? Is it practically possible  or right that you .shall' raise a Chinese.,wall, so toii(.s*pe'ak; "against = the  Hun, the German"! jind thus" put; as  it were, into a compartment a certain  portion oL the races, of the countries  of Europe, with the/idea that you can  hold them.there, or that if yo- can  that it will be for the benefit of  Europe and the world as a whole?  These questions are raised and-will  bo discussed. But we have been engaged in a Titanic struggle, we are  yet engaged in it, it is not over-by  any means.    You here, in this Prov-  read herself,out of decent civilization  until she repents and reforms no nation will Booner welcome her to tho  sisterhood of nations than Great Britain horaolf. All Uiatel-pload for today is for, calm but very deep'thorough thought on tills question, and  don't bo led away by the muttorings  or pattorings of Cosmopolitans who  have so much love for humanity as  a whole that thoy coaso to look after  their own family and tholr own nationhood Our first duty is to our family, our community, our Province  our nation, our Umpire. Wo iniial:  mako sure that tho' ideals and principles .that wo hold dear shall have  tholr sufficient vindication now iu this  war. If thoy don't, it only meaiis  that succeeding gonoratlons, may be  not far distant, shall go through a,  worse Gothscmano than has this present generation In this last two years.

Berry, Sanlis, B. C.   '  A   SAD  ACCIDIONT  There is not a factory in Belgium, all  ince, haave.done splendidll.in answer-  the factories are in Germany. When   ing to the unuttered call of Britain  peace comes she will have Belgium  machinery, "and raw products to manufacture on that side of the line;  and  therefore  can  say  to  Belgium;  in any shape or form; to prevent the1 Buy from ua> it js true we have taken  ogress through these contiguous your machinery and raw material.but  countries���������and what a task it was!���������: all 'the same vve will manufacture for  of supplies    from    neutral    powers  which should come into the hands of  the Germans and the Austrians. For  if it were laid down as a matter of  international law, or allowed in practice, that neutral nations should deal  unrestrictedly with Holland, Holland  was the  backdoor of  Germany, and  you   might' just  as   well   pour  your  resources into Germany, except that  the  Hollander  would   not  have   his  commission.    The same with Sweden,  Norway,   Denmark   and   Switzerland,  and, for a time, with Italy���������there was  a    continuous    round    of    territory  through which the Hun would draw  sustenance of every kind from outside  and   neutral  nations.   That  was  the  thing to be stopped���������stopped by the  British fleet, but stopped also through  tho prohibition against trading with  tho enemy subject no matter where  ever they lived or in what portion of  the   world;   stopped   by  regulations,  negotiations carried    to    conclusion  with   Holland,     Denmark,     Norway,  Sweden and Switzerland along these  lines    Say  to these  countries:   "We  have no desire to keep out of your  "countries  what  you  need  what you  have usually imported, but look    at  your books���������you are importing in a  few months this year more than you  imported in a whole year before the  war.    Are you eating so much more  ���������consuming so much  more?    Is  it  not patent you  are distributing    to'enemy countries shall not come into  you anything that you like���������after the  war is over. That shows what is  meant by the period of reconstruction  In burnt ruined Belgium there will  be these deported imports. What is  more, in all of the Allies' countries,  where war has claimed their whole  attention, and where in consequence  of ihe important work of munition  making they have neglected other  manufactures, at the cessation of the  war there will be a period of confusion and rehabilitation and reconstruction  What shall be the aspect of the Allies towards the enemy? First it was  agreed that all must favor the Allies  in the period alter the wrar, and tlie  Allies bound themselves not to %ive  to the enemy countries any privileges  during that period. So that the" Allies will be free to make whatever  co-operations they please among them  selves, and will not be bound to give  the same rights to Germany, which  were formerly made necessary by ill?  existence of the Most Favored Nations' Treaty clauses. In customs regulations they will have a care to  prevent the Ingress of the German  made articles. No attempt will be  made to effect measures of protection���������I speak of protection in any relation to tariff���������but you can protect  yourselves' by seeing that goods from  fe  "^  Best Grades     Lowest price  ALBEIT   LEE,   Grocer  and   Baiter  SH55  ���������answering to your own impulse is  the better way in which to put it,  and journeying to-the Front to fight  for the common cause.      You have  done well, but the war is not over,  and you must not. stop yet.    Britain  cannot and must not stop yet.

That was  the   broad-.basis   of   the   conclusion  come to, and it was to be worked out  by whatever method seemed good, but  the principle    absolutely laid    down  was that the Allied Nations are to  co-operate with each other by whatever measures they think-best, and In  their, own  dominions are to so operate them  that the result will ..be  that we shall  become- economically  lndepentdent of Germany,  and that  insofar,as is necessary    those    who  have mingled their blood in a common cause,and have paid the penalty  by their blood and by vast sacrifices  ���������that they shall make it their first  duties to. see that those countries who  have so acted shall be built up first  whether Germany and   Austria   are  built up or not.  I could expand upon this to a great  er extent, and I have only given you  just the outstanding points about it  ���������I leave it there, you can read 'the  conclusions yourself.  Now  there   comes  the     question:  Well, what are you going to do? Are  you going to read Germany out of  the circle of decent civilization���������are  you  going  to  raise  a  wall  against  seventy millions of people and pre-  past.    What right of humanity and  nationhood has she not violated? She  has broken international faith for the  sake of getting the first advantage of  the. war,  a  heinous  crime  amongst  nations.   She   has   rendered  a   campaign of frightfulness and  done so  during this war from, head quarters,  and by high authority, has operated  her campaign    of; frightfulness,    in  which neither the virtue of women  nor the crying appeal of children, nor  the sacred sanctities of the home have  found any mercy, where art and humanity, the soul of both, have been  trampled  upon,  and  trampled  upon  worse than by the barbarians of old.  She has  poisoned  the wells of her  fairplay enemy.    She has not fought  the fight on a broad square manly  fashion.       She has sunken    vessels  where thousands of neutral combat-1  (From Fraser Valley Record  On Wednesday afternoon tho community was shocked by hearing of  the sudden death of Mrs.' -Hugh A-  bercrombie of Mission City, while on  a fishing expedition to the Dewdney  dyke near Hatzic  Mr. and Mrs. Abercrombie left  for up river in their launch early in  the- afternoon to enjoy fishing at the  dyke.
