SATURDAY,  SEP. 25, 1915.  The Silver Lining.  The  motive of the different  nations; commonly  called   th e  Entente Allies, for taking,part  in this war were no doubt various.   But as the conflict is progressing, the-situation is becoming clearefand the world is now  beginning to realize that the one  great issue being fought for is,  whether one nation shall be permitted to exercise power without  hindrance to dictate its will to  the resc of the nations of the  world.   This jis a cause worthy  of a struggle even as great as  this, a cause superior to all others  because iris that of human lib-  erty.. > ')  It is in accordance with na-  gether with the already existing  state prohibition of liquor, will  very soon bring Russia and her  people into the front ranks of  civilized nations.  The great rivalry among na-  tions in preparing for war upon  each other will surely receive a  great check and may stop altogether. A great drain upon the  resources of the people will thus  be turned into channels for the  enrichment of mankind.  Another effect we  may look  for is not only the strengthening  of the cords that bind the British  Empire together, but also a bond  of sympathy developing between  all the  nations  and  races now  united in their efforts to protect  and extend   a   common   sacred  cause.    Ireland and Britain will  be  reconciled;' Russians,   Fins,  Poles and Jews will become as  brothers, because common hardships,  sufferings and sacrifices  will be stronger remedies to destroy walls .of prejudice and opposing interests than competition  and worldly success could ever  be. \.   '  . The cause of temperance which  is held by many to-be of the utmost importance for the common  welfare has by the exigencies of  the war received a recognition  and support that has .'brought  the liquor traffic within sightof  an early overthrow in the-civi-  lized world.  . The Christian- church experienced a great fear that the war  would give the spreading of the  gospel among the heathen a serious setback. But it seems now  that this fear is groundless. The  missionary work is going on.  Instead of halting and weakening, the gospel is winning morel  Saturday, Septemher 25, ./o,'*  courage and repeat in the words  of the greatest of battle hymns,  "Our God is marching on."  . ture's laws, that the sacrifices  made for the. protection and  . maintenance,of the freedom of  the world's different races to  develop alongjtheir own peculiar  lines, within the rules of international law, must have an elevating and ennobling influence  upon those who are privileged  to make them:  In the storm and stress of the  conflict, in tHe knowledge and  experience of; the war, <sorrow  and other suffering endured, in  the loss of comfort, wealth and  many other good things that  make up the;, life of civilized  people, it is well sometimes to  lift our sad eyes from these distressing things and look upon  some of the blessings which it is  hoped will follow in the wake of  this great work for humanity.  That the cause of liberty will  come out victorious in this contest is as sure as there is a righteous ruler of the Universe.  Let us examine some of the indications of good to come out of  the present evfls:  Russia, that stronghold of medieval conditions, is experiencing  a general awakening which will  prove the downfall of despotic  bureaucratic rule. The national  assembly, the Duma, contains a  large majority-in favor of the  enactment of rjeformatory laws,  such as: Autonomy for Poland;  a conciliatory policy toward Finland; amnesty for political and  religious ofienses not of a criminal character; complete cessation j  1  of religious persecutions; removal of restrictions upon the Jews;  recognition of the legality of  trades unions and others. The  adoption of  such reforms,  to-^  glorious victories than ever. We  have not the space in this article  to enumerate'itsmanyevidences  of progress," ;\but will close by  mentioning that in. christian  lands now at war, where formerly great indifference to things  religious were patent, general  revivals are being experienced.  Houses of worship, which before  the war were practically empty,  are now thronged by a people  who realize the. need of the  supernatural.  In reviewing these symptoms  of reform and progress we take  7bo Hard Up.  It seems that a committee dealing with the condition-of unemployment prevalent in ^Victoria  sent a request to the provincial  government that $60,000 be appropriated for relief work.    The  kind of work suggested by the  committee was the development  of agricultural lands.    The committee reasoned that this appropriation would, besides relieving  distress, also develop resources  and, therefore, prove profitable  to the provincial exchequer.  But the government after carefully considering the proportion  came to the conclusion-that the  money could not be appropriated  for such purpose, because it was  "not practical" to do so.     Sir  Richard in his reply to the committee's request says:   "I hope  you understand that anyarrange-  ment we might make with "your  people locally would necessarily  apply throughout the province,  and we cannot at the present  time undertake to go into a relief  system which would involve millions of dollars."  We take issue with the government on this, point. We believe  that among others it is the duty  of the government to. promote  the welfare of the people and  that, must necessarily include  the relief, of distress; If it were  possible, all relief should be in  the nature of providing means  by which the recipient should  return value-for the assistance  given. The indiscriminate donation qf food, ,clothes and money  is pernicious.   .  A government which can afford to pay out $85,000 to two  JRoyal Commissions, $80,000 commissions to Hamilton Read and  H. O. Alexander to put through  the $200,000 Kitsilano Reserve  deal, and induce other extravagances too numerous to mention,  should be able to make a comparatively  small  investment to  relieve suffering which has been  caused to some extent, at least,  by its own mismanagement.  That the government knows  its duty in a matter of this kind  we fully believe, and that it is  very desirous, to relieve the situation, we also believe, especially  at this time when an election is  near, but that it does not do so  is very likely because the treasury cannot stand the disbursement. .  When Sir Richard states that  an appropriation to relieve the  Victoria unemployed would.make  it necessary to do the same for  all other points of the province  in similar circumstances, and  that this would involve an  ex-  1  penditure of .millions of dollars,  it seems to contradict his cablegram to England that the reports  of unemployment in the province  w.ere exaggerated.

JBut at the  same time we hold that the committee who made him the representative   of   the   prohibition  forces, must have overlooked the  fact that he being a man prominent in  politics will be looked  upon with suspicion, by a large  number of people.  - It is in our.opinion unfortunate  that a man who is a member of  the  present   legislature   and a  politician. ; A person free of all  political  leaning should   at  all  events be more preferable, and  particularly at this tirife.

Notwithstanding the report in  0l������r last issue that $1.15 was the  price offered farmers for potatoes  at IVinee Rupert, a reliable representative of a Vancouver wholesale  grocery   house  stated   last  Sunday  that his firm  was selling potatoes  for $9.00 per ton  at Vancouver.    If it should prove  true that there is such a slump  in the potato market, the storing  of potatoes with a view of obtaining better prices in the spring  will be forced upon our farmers.  As potatoes are bulky, large cellars for their storage are necessary, where such are not read,y a  way which will carry the potatoes  through the winter in a first class  shape is to put them in pits, in  fact this is the best method of  storing them.    Keep them cov-  -red   with  straw   until   all  are  harvested.    This will dry them  out and  protect them from the  weather.  When stored in the pit, dry  straw is the best first covering,  then some earth on the straw,  leaving a little ventilation at the  top, or better still have a few-  box ventillators run up from the  bottom of the pit to the top.  Earth enough should be added  to keep them from freezing. Late  in the fall before hard freezing  weather, some stable manure  may be used as extra cover and  this covered again with soil to a  sufficient depth to prevent freezing. The pit should be made  where the drainage from it is  good.  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  QOAL MIXING RIGHTS of the Dominion, in  Manitoka.

A writer in the Family Herald  and Weekly Star has this to say  about the use of manure. It may  be of value to some of our farmer friends.  "I disagree with the authorities when  they  claim  that all  manure  should  go on  the hoe  crop.     My  experience   is   that  corn will give a good crop on sod  land  as  a result of cultivation  alone.   Practically all good farmers nowadays grow clover, and  a sod turned over and for the  corn crop following, well cultivated,   there   is   abundance   of  fertility already in the soil. Corn  however is a gross feeder and  when harvested in the fall it will  have sapped the soil of much of  the available plant food that it  contained.    This applies especially to soil on which  the  corn  crop has been allowed to ripen.  It is the maturing of the crop  that is the hardest on the soil.  It is because of this that so many  are dissatisfied with the yields of  the crops that follow corn. They  should be fertilized.  ���������'Many farmers are coming to  iu-lieve that the ideal way to apply the manure is to give a very  light dressing to the corn  crop  itself,   a  light  dressing  to  the  grain crop that follows the corn  ai.d then another light application to the  weak  spots  in  the  Hover  stand   that  need  special  aid.    A practice that is becoming  [lUi'te   common,   is   to  so*   fail;  wheat after corn.    In this case |  four or five loads of manure to  llu.   acre,   applied   just   before;  seeding, will Kfive  the wheat, a;  sufliciently good  start to make;  UM, enough to protect it in winter.  It is easier to start something  than to keep it going and produce results.  pKoiFHKY K. Burnett   I). J. McGugan  ���������---' C.E.. H.C.L.3., B.A.3.C.. B.C.L.S..  ASS. M.CAN.SOC. CE.

Bella Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE REASONS for this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  OELLA COOLA and the surrounding  country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.

Those who. prophesy blue ruin  if prohibition becomes effective,  and who shut their eyes to the  beneficial   effect of   prohibition  wherever it is/.in force, should'  read  the' following   illustration  fished.up from memory of a campaign taking place 30 years ago.  It may be overdrawn in some of  its deatails; but it is,' nevertheless; perfect in  its application'  to business.  John was-working in a factory  which   employed . one   hundred  L  men.    On his way to and from  work he passed a saloon, where  he   called   every   morning  and  evening for refreshments.    Oh  Saturday night in common with  his fellow labpres, he stopped to  settle his week's bill and have* a  glass   with his-friends.     Their  stay was always prolonged until  a late hour and very little money  was left for food and clothes for  himself and family when with  brains befogged he wended his  way homeward. But in the course  of time a great change took  place.    It happened in this way:  One Saturday night, with very  little money left after spending  several,hours in the saloon, he  stopped at the butcher shop to  buy something for Surjday dinner. ' On entering ���������the shop, feeling depressed   and   htimble  on  account of his poverty, he meekly  stepped aside as the prosperous  and cheerful saloonkeeper boldy  brushed past to the counter. The  rosy saloonkeeper slapped a crisp  dollar bill down and called for  the best porterhouse steak in the  shop,   John timidly stepped up  when the saloonkeeper weht^ut  and fishing out ten cents asked  for a piece of liver.   It struck  him  painfully that his family,  which was every whit as good as  the   saloonkeeper's,   should   be  obliged to fair so poorly when the  family of the saloonkeeper enjoyed the fat of the land.    He  had also noticed that the dollar  bill the liquor dealer paid the  butcher, looked a good deal like  the one" he had given him that  evening.    If John only had that  dollar  bill  now,  he might'buy  porterhouse steak too.    He then  and  there   resolved   that   next  Saturday   he   would   buy" good  meat,   even  porterhouse   steak.  Next Monday he did not stop at  the saloon; but told his brethren  at   the   factory  his experience  from last Saturday., and his resolve.    They had been similarly  situated and therefore they all  agreed   that,   this  week��������� they  would boycott the saloon and  spend their wages for things  their families could enjoy.  Saturday night came and John  passed by the saloon and went  straight for the butcher's shop,  and in a loud voice demanded  a dollar's worth of   the  finest  steak in the shop.   The saloonkeeper came also, but in a more  subdued  mood   than   the  week  previous.     He   very, modestly  stated that business  had   been  unusually dull" during the week  and therefore could not afford to  buy anything   better than ten  cents worth of liver.   John after  leaving the butcher shop stopped  at the grocery and shoe stores  for some necessaries and  then  came home to an astonished and  delighted family.  The other men from the factor true to their resolves did the  same as John from that time on,  with the result that the butcher  on   Saturday   night   sold   $100  worth of meat, as compared to  $11 worth while the saloonkeeper  was his only prosperous customer.    The other stores  in- town  experienced a similar increase in  their business.    And the same  experience will every  business  centre   enjoy that  will  banish  the liquor traffic, the great enemy of prosperity.  fn  The Fool and Our Forest Dollars.  'By E. T. ALLEN.
