The first order of business was to
read the minutes of the January meet- 	
ing. at which the matter o�� sending;| pearance as the house has an  ideal
delegates to the Kootenay-jooundary i natUral location  to set off to advan-
growers    convention    was    decided.   fcage the 8 foot frontal addition
These were adopted as read.
Then came a report from Messrs.
Embree, Hamilton, Staples and Adlard, the committee entrusted with
the task of devising a system of charg-
baek rebates to provide revenue for
the Union's working expenses for the
front part off 1916. They reported
adversely against such procedure.
As an alternative proposal looking
to solve financial difficulties the committee suggested, via President Jackson, the sale of new stock to all members who shipped produce through the
Union in 1015 on a basis of one S5
share for every $100 .wor h of stuff
In discussing the question the chairman did not mince matters. Tbe
growers were at the parting of the
ways so far as the Union was concerned. If the Union went out of
business what was to follow ? The
bigger growers were behind the present selling agency and willing, to see
it through on an equitable assessment
plan such as outlined. If it were, good
business for the heavy shippers to
stand by the Union, the smaller exporters should also find it worth while;
it were hardly possible to get the
ranchers together in any new organization on as fair a financial, basis,
Messrs. Goodwin, Adlard, Lyne and
Chas. Moore also spoke favorably of
the proposition and on a ballot being
aken the suggestion was approved by
a vote of 35 (representing 215 shares)
to 6 (representing 46 shares).
The following gentlemen were!
chosen to canvass shareholdeos for
their approval of the move: Victor
Chit for Alice Siding; H. Lyne for the
northeast) part of Creston section ; C.
Moore, the district be'ow the tracks;
Jas. Adlard, Creston to Erickson school
district; E. E. Carthwright for Frick-
son; F. Knott for Canyon City.
The motion to amend the Articles
of Constitution to change the qualification for director from a shareholder
i ��f ten -hares to a holder of one share
carried with but one dissenting voice.
There will be another meeting on
March 21st to confirm the motions
passed at this meeting, to hear reports from canvassers, and to further
discuss the fruit packages matter.

The March meeting of Creston Women's Institute, in Speers' Hall on
Saturday afternoon last, was by long
odds the best in this new organization's
history, both in the interest manifest
as well as in attendance, there being
51 members out. while seven new
names were added to the roll, bringing
the total membership up to 59.

disposed of, called; on Mrs. H. Lyne
who read a very 'practical and carefully prepared paper on ���"���Patriotism,"
after which the members were busy
making the dressings for the Bed
Cross under Mrs'. (Dr.) Henderson's
instructions and at the close of proceedings 16 dozen dressings were completed and turned over to the Creston
Red Cross Auxiliary.
An appreciated variety was lent the
afternoon's proceedings by Mrs. Attridge and Mrs. Downs who favored
with a piano duett. Miss Ella Dow
gave a very pleasing solo, and Miss
Hardman contributed a well-chosen
and well-rendered reading, "Death
and War."
To round out the patriotic sentiment
that permeated the whole session the
meeting closed by singing.
"God save our splendid men,
Send them safe home again,
God save our men,
Keep them yictorious,
Patient and chivalrous,
They are s6 dear to us���

TIT CURES RHEUMATISM  Thousands of people, chuck full 01  the joy of living���������happy, glad, bright  people, that Nerviline has cured 01  their pains, all tell the same wonderful story of its powers to drive out  the aches and tortures of rheumatism  i and kindred ills.  I "My goodness, but Z-serviline is a  ' miracle worker," writes Mrs. Char-  lotta Chipuian, mother of a well-  known family residing at Mount  Pleasant. "Last month I was so crippled up with sciatica and musc.l-ir  rheumatism as to be almost unable to  do a bit of house-work. My ."joints  were so stiff and the nmscles so  frightfully sore that I even cnec! at  times with the pain. For yea**s we  have used Nerviline in our family and  I just got busy with this wonderful  good old liniment. Lota of rubbing  with Nerviline soon relieved my misery and I was in a real short time  about my work as usual."  No matter where the ache is, no  matter how distressing the pain you  can rub it away with Nerviline. For  forty years it has been curing lumbago, sciatica, backache, colds, chest  trouble and all sorts of winter-ills.

Some were  blindfolded; but the effect was the  vame, and only one horse showed  any willingness to go.  Thereupon the driver jumped down,  and. cutting the traces of the other  horses, drove the willing- one at full  gallop through the lire.

NO "FRILLS"  Just a   Statement   About   Food  A Nerve  Trouble,   Always  Due to Weak, Watery  Blood  Only those who have been attacked  with neuralgia can form the faintest  idea    of what its  victims  suffer.    A  tingling of    the tender skin, a sharp  sudden stab from some angry nerve;  then piercing paroxysms of pain that  is neuralgia. The cause of the trouble  is disordered nerves,    due    to    weak,  watery blood.    The    cure is Dr. Williams' Pink    Pills,  which make  new,  rich,   red  blood,  and  thus  sooth   ana  strengthen the disordered nerves and  cure    neuralgia.    Mr.    Louis Martin,  Mildmay, Ont., says:    "I am writing  to let you know the great benefit Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills nave been to me. |  Two      years    ago   1   was  a   physical [  wreck.   My nerves were all unstrung  and  I  suffered  tortures  from neuralgia, in the head and throughout the  nervous  system  generally.  I  was  almost unfit for work,  and  only managed  to get along with  the greatest  difficulty.    I  doctored for about  five  months   and   in   this   time   took  over  forty dollars' worth of medicine without any benefit.   More, I was actually  growing worse, and finally had to take  to my bed.   My nerves got so bad that  I could not turn over in bed without  help and the pain was something awful.    As I am a farmer you can easily  see   that  necessary  work  was   being  neglected, so I sent for a brother who  was   in  Alberta,   to   come    and  take  charge of the worK.   When my brother  arrived   he   at  once   urged   me  to  try  Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills,  telliug  me of some cures that .had come under his observation.   I got half a dozen  boxes, and  before  they  were  all  gone there was no doubt they were  helping me.    Altogether I used nine  boxes of the Pills  and by that  time  I was a well man, and it is impossible  to  say how  thankful I  was  for my  release from pain."

Russia will  sacrifice a million,  ���������- ���������   ' '��������� j yes, five million, to accomplish victory  statement sums up the belief 1 in this  war.    None of the allies  ex-  lies."  "Vhat  of Stanley Washburn, war correspond  .ent, who has just arrived in Washington after having been with the Russian army' practically since the start  of the war.  Mr. Was]}burn made the assertion  after due deliberation in answer to a  question concerning his views on Russia's part in the war. He made it notwithstanding the fact that lie was  with the army from the time it began  its retreat in front of the Austro-(_er-  man forces in Galicia until it haltea  far in Russia.  "Russia," Mr. Washburn continued,  "has passed, and passed successfully,  the low tide of its fortunes in this  war. On the other hand���������although I  do not want to be put in the position  of saying that Germany is done by  any means���������it is my belief Germany-  has passed the zenith of its career in  the conflict, j^  "Nothing convinces me of the accuracy of this belief more than the  failure of the German campaign  against the Russian army."  Mr. Washburn, was told that the impression generally prevailed in this  country that the German campaign  was a victorious one.  "Quite the opposite, quite the opposite," he contended in answer. "When  Germany began its operations against  the Russian army the latter had plenty of men, but practically no supplies.  lt is .true that the Germans tore  througli Galicia, that at one time they  tore a hole forty miles wide through  the very centre "of the Russian army,  but at no time did they accomplish  the object of their campaign.  ���������'That object was the destruction of  the Russian army, which, according  to the German viewpoint, would compel Russia to seek a separate peace.  (*-_*.r__.-_f   ' ���������.-n���������   i__~������������.~���������������j -s������   xx.te..  W licit   lias   icaujr    napjjcucu   j.5   imo.  The German soldiers, according to  what I gathered from the prisoners  taken by the Russians, were told that  Russia would seek peace if they captured Warsaw.. They captured Warsaw, but they failed to capture or  destroy the Russian army defending  Warsaw.   *  "Then the Germans were told that  if they went on a few miles further,  the Russians undoubtedly would be  destroyed and peace with Russia  would be obtaineo. They went not a  few miles, but many miles.  "But they had to fight and fight terrifically all the way. At no time did  they destroy the Russian army, though  tliey did destroy and capture several  units of the army.  "Finally the Germans reached a  point which is like a balance. They  could go no farther, if they did, they  would extend their communications  beyond the .danger point. And they  knew that all the time they were  maltihg' it simpler for the Russians to  defend themselves.  "It, is my firm belief that the Russian army is far more powerful on the  defense than the offense.  "Although it suffered terribly in its  retreat, the army inflicted tremendous  damage on the Germans. Had the Russians been as well 'prepared as the  Germans, the latter never would have  advanced half aa far as they did.  "But to get back to the point. The  German army was told that the capture of Warsaw, then the capture of  Brest, of Riga, of Ivangorod, and ot  any number of places meant peace.  The German army got thoso places,  but It failed to  get peaco.  "Consequently there has been a  telling effect on the German morale.  Thus far it has been only a seepage,  but It lias been a real seepage,  "As I regard tho situation today,  Germany and Russia aro largely like  two prize lighters, like Johnson and  Willard at Havana, if you wish. Germany ban al! the sclonce, all of tho  generalship, oil of tho weapons, everything that Johnson had in that light.  Rut. llko Johnson, Germany has a limit to its physical endurance.  "Russia, ou tho other baud, has .lust  begun to acquire the solonce, weapons, and tho llko, hut at no tlmo has  Russia boon without endurance.  "Johnson in tho prize light reached  tho point, whei'o ho It now it was uso-  IcBti to hind another blow on Willard.  Tho German army has reached tho  point where It I'celfi that It in almost  usaleHH to advance further Into Hub-  bla lo deliver another blow, because  it renll/.cH tlmt the UubhI.iu arm will  only como back for more, thnt It can  take and m-weinhlo moro punishment  than  any  other army  the  world  ha;;  llll1"       .Hli,,  "Jt Is because of thin feeling on the  purl, of the German army anil because  of tho failure of tho Gorman plan to  cruiili tho Russian army mid force  Rum-dan Invasion uh one of the greatest mlHtiiUcH of the war.  "Although Jt may neon, a rash prediction, I venture to mul.c lt that when  iho (.'luiioiiii aiiiiy ilu'.lly crumble;., if  It does crumble, or when Germany In  h.ially v.'i'lt"'* t.o .'v^o ucmm'., mui  peace will not,'be nindo null) Gerinony  1st wUllnjj lo iniiUe It ulmoMt iit lho ni-  llc!i* tcrliui, Ilmu-ia will bo Iho power  to force Germany  to  llu  kneoii.

Germany and Austria combined  cannot stand up before such a determination on Russia's part."  Mr. vvasnburn was asKed why he  believed that Russia would make such  a sacrince. He said he had reached  his conclusions atter taming witn  Russians from the Czar himseit down  to the humblest peasants. j  One of tnese peasants had two sor.s !  in the army. Mr. Washburn asiced  him if he owuld liKe peace. He repned  that every one wanced peace. Mr.  Washburn asked him if he would liKe  peace on German's terms. He said  no. Mr. Washburn then asked him if  he was willing to sacrifice his sons,  if necessary, to get peace on Russia's  terms.    He replied:  "I am unwilling, yet willing."  The correspondent pointed out that  when the Czar deposed Grand Duke  Nicrtoias and tooie personal cnarge of  the army he set at rest 'all rumors  that Russia would consider a separate  or would consider peace at all until  the war is won.  "When tiie Czar went to tiie front,"  lie said, "the little grand duke, his  heir, went with him. The Roraanon  dynasty, by the Czar's act .stalted its  future on the outcome of the war."  Mr. Washburn expressed the opinion that the Czar's, decision to take  command of the armies has had not  only a good political but a good military effect.  '*! say this," he continued, "without  attempting in the least to detract  from the grand duke. When the war  started the grand duke was the one  man in Russia to take charge of trie  Russian armies, to bring order out of  chaos. This he did. He did it by exercising the greatest personal power  ever displayed by any man in Russia.  The grand duke is not only an able  man but a fearless, decisive, and patriotic man.  He has never had but one purpose  since the war started. That was to  contribute his share to the Russian  victory. When the Czar believed he  had -done liis greatest work and that  the time had come for the people to  know that their ruler was himself  willing to take charge of the army,  the grand duke stepped aside willingly and in doing so urged the army to  given even greater services to tha  Czar than it had given to him."  With respect to *fche Czar, Mr. Washburn is of the opinion that Americans  generally misunderstood him.  "He is not a small man," said the  writer, "in any sense of the word. On  the other hand, he is an ahle, cultured  gentleman with a great deal of determination.  "While it is. true he may not be a  great military man, he has chosen ior  his chief of staff a man who, in my  estimation is the greatest leader developed by the war. That is Gen.  Alexieff.

The Farm Home  Greater Home Comforts and Conveniences   Essential  for the   Success  of  Farm   Life  When the white man first came to  Wisconsin his whole effort was put  forth to wrest from the soil the main-  i tenance for life. Every member of  the family helped to clear the land,  to plant the grain and to gather the  harvest. The bonce was merely a  shelter from the wolf, the bear, "the  winter's cold, an . the summer's heat.  Little or no thought was given to its  convenience, sanitation or comfort.  As the forest lines moved farther and  farther away from the little log house,  the settlers realized that barns must  be built to house the harvest and  farm animals. Every dollar that could  be earned had to be turned back into  the farm to increase its yield and so  the home, although the dearest thing  to the heart of every man, was the  last to be considered.  When great barns were raised and  farm animals <were comfortably  housed, one by one comforts began  to creep into the home. First, it was  a good stove, then more convenient  cooking utensils, then a white tablecloth and while dishes sent from the  and then a room or two added  *-  ���������-> rm,  rl m +\ ������ *t\ t vm, rv* ������������������^f\/l f*l"l  (111 I"* "���������-������"! 1 -J"  tin     aujviuiaj, nuvju<*mt.u      uauvi  the increased bank account  the hope of the new house, not  house this, but a frame or brick  GERMANY'S COUNTER MEASURES UNSUCCESSFUL  The British Navy's Grip is Gradually Tightening, and Enemy's  Trade With Scandinavia has been Completely cut  off by the Activity of the British Submarines   *  East,  ami  With  grew  a log-  house  Today as we ride along the road  we do not judge a man's prosperity  by his broad fields or his great barns,  but by the house in which he lives,  and the way in which it is kept up.  Unconsciously, when we see a house  that is unpainted, whose roof seems  to be sagging in, blinds off. door  steps broken down, dooryard littered  with farm tools and no vestige of  lawn or flowers, we say to ourselves,  "that-farm is not paying." As we  judge a nation .by the prosperity of  its homes, so w*e judge the farm by  the prosperity of the home.  The G.erman navy has recently ��������� that her naval officers can in any way  treated us to no little display of force j compete with ours in dash, in spirit,  at the* southern end of the Baltic.  Reports tell of cruisers and destroy  ers dashing hither and thither, now  attacking tne British steamer Thelma  in Swedish territorial waters, now  steaming up through the Sound and  into the Cattegut, only to come flying-  back helter-skelter to German waters  "as if the devil were after them." It  appears that in this case the "devil"  was a flotilla of British destroyers,  for we hear that our ships have been I  seen in force in this eastern arm of  the North Sea, and that they have escorted two flotillas of submarines  down the Cattegut as far as Eisiiiore,  at the north end of the Sqund.  This German parade ofvforce is, on  the face of it, merely another attempt  to cope with our submarines, but at  the back there are signs of uneasiness  and even, of panic.  Germany is getting very nervous of  the Baltic blockade, says Mr. John  F. H. Pollen, an authority and writer  6_t naval affairs.  It has not "petered out" as she expected, but on the contrary it is growling in intensity. Germany's counter  measures have been totally unsuccessful, for we have not as yet lost a  single submarine; above all, the .need  | of iron ore, cotton, and foodstuffs is  being   daily   more   felt,   and   perhaps  or in that wonderful faculty of adaptation to circumstances that has been  the outstanding feature of our conduct in this srea Avar.  The British navy's grip is tighten*  ing, and the swarm of submarines is  going to show Germany what a submarine blockade is, and the losses  will not be too pleasant.  In the Mediterranean the list of casualties among merchantmen is  quite  small, and no transports: have recextt-  ! ly been attacked, though an enormous  I number of these ships have been plying to and fro in the Middle Sea.  It would seem that the navy has  got this submarine menace well in  hand, and though we must expect a  new outburst of activity on the part  of the U Boats, and must prepare ourselves for some losses among our  numerous transports, it seems certain  that we shall not suffer any serious  hindrance   to   our   operations   in   the  .__._'p---v.a  But there is another aspect of Germany's piracy campaign which must  certainly be taken into account.  The     up-to-date"    farmer    realizes^ the  "open'road  to  the East"  is  not  that the greatest saving he can mak  is the saving of his wife's strength  and health, because to her is entrusted the most precious thing on the  farm, the rearing of the boys and  girls, and if her "nerves are not in  the very best condition, it is impossible for her to enter sympathetically  into the lives of her family; to help  decide for the children the all important questions that come ta-t them.  It is impossible for her to take a vital j  interest in the affairs of her husband,'  to be ready to assist in the work of  the community and to help build up  the rural schools, and yet these are  the duties of every farm woman.  As machinery has taken the place  of the hired man, so must machinery  take the place of the hired girl who  is today a scarce article in farm  homes. The farmer who does most  of the heavy work on his farm with  the help of a gasoline engino must  realize that washing and cleaning in  the home can be done by the same or  similar engine.  He must realize that the same law  applies to the members of the family  that  applies   to     the   dairy  animals.  The   barns   must   be   kept   warm   so  that the cow uses all her energy to  produce milk.    So the home must be  kept warm by a furnace so the family  will be saved  its  strength to do  the necessary work.    Today the most  needed  thing on  farms  is  well planned  houses;   houses  in  which   every  unnecessary   ,nep  will  be  saved   the  wife and mother, and we arfe glad to  say ihat with, tiie great wave of prosperity  that  lias  come  to  Wisconsin,  has persistently come the demand for  conveniently   planned    houses     from  men of  Wisconsin;   and the Agricultural College of the University is now  planning to  send  out plans  for this  new type of house that is being demanded.    The  proposed house plans  will make provision for. heating, lighting, disposal of sewage all at tlio very  lowest cost.  The tlmo has come in Wisconsin  when wc all realize that it' we are  going to save for Wisconsin her rural population wo must put our best  efforts on the building up of a homo  that will have all tho conveniences  of the city with all the glory of the  country, so that when the boys and  girls reach manhood and womanhood  their ono desire will be-to remain on  a portion of the old farm and rear a  homo patterned after tho one in  > which they spent tho happy years of  their   youth.���������Hoard's   Dairyman.  Kaiser Sends Sword  producing the, supply of raw materials  that Germany  anticipated!  The re-opening of the enemy's trade  routes to Scandinavia is becoming  more and more essential, but the waters of the Baltic are swarming with  our submarines, and this re-opening  is as far off as is ever was.  Could Germany close the Sound ef-  . fectively to our submarines and could  j she then raise an impenetrable wall of  mines and nets from her coasts to the  limit of Sweden's territorial waters,  tliere might yet be some hope that  uernuni merchantmen could cross the  seas in safety.  Past events seem to indicate that  Germany can never raise such a barrier, for, in naval warfare, apart from  the unenviable credit of initiating a  campaign of murder on the high seas,  she has  shown ho  such ingenuity in  *"������_���������_���������.������   ..lane    oc    /������pn    lofl/1    i.������  I refer to the possibility of attacks  being made on our hospital ships.

The secretary of the admiralty has  just issued a further absolute denial  of these falsehoods. The first appearance of the hospital ship lies was  quickly followed by the announcement  that the Anglia with 400 wounded on  board had been sunk by a mine!  It was  further  suggested- that  the  mines  had  drifted  in  from  our own.  fields  in the  North  Sea, but  this is  proved false by the fact that a heavy-  southwesterly gale had raged for several  days  before  the  disaster.     The  most  probable   explanation is  that  a  German   mine-laying   stibmarine,   taking advantage of this gale, released a  number of floating mines  at the entrance   to   the   Channel,   trusting   -i_>  their sinking something as they were  carried up the Channel.

Receipts and Advances in the Prov������  inces Are Tabulated  The Canadian Patriotic Fund executive has issued a provincial analysis  of the receipts and expenditures of  the fund for the period ending December 31, 1915, illustrating the advantage of relegating to a national fund  the responsibility of maiutaininfe the  wives and children of the soldiers.  "In certain parts of the country a  little hostility was shown during the  early months of the war to the national undertaking," says the statement, "the craze for local autonomy  causing leading citizens of certain  towns to prefer tfe retain control of  their own funds rather than entrust  them to the Canadian National Patriotic Fund. This attitude is now practically non-existant. Had it been gen-  at   the following lists  will show that, while more than  ample provisions would have been  mado to soldiers* families in Eastern  Canada, they would have had a hard  time In certain of tho western provinces. The principle at the back of the  national fund is that a community  shall contribute to the extent of Its  ability and draw to the extent of its  needs. In tho cases of Alberta nnd  British Columbia, tho former would  not equal the latter. In both provinces enlistment has been heavy,  whllo until recently there was a pronounced scarcity of funds, t'oriiaps  this same condition still obtains iu  British Columbia. Tho National Patriotic Fund, however, Insures the soldier's family against want, no matter  what local conditions may be.

MAR. 10  This week the honors of the  editorial page are shared with a  verbatim report oi one of the  speakers' remarks on the negative  side of the recent debate on the  subject: Resolved, "That Socialism  unaided by religion oannot cure  present day evils."  In view of the added controversial  prominence both the Church and  the Socialist party have gained  through the present -European war  the subject under discussion, while  usually productive of much readable argument, takes an almost  double interest at the present  time.  Xo our way of thinking Mr. Lidgate handles the subject on broad  lines from his standpoint, aud he  certainly has the style and knack  of stringing hie argument together  in readable fashion for even those  who, though strongly anti-Socialist  are willing to forget their bias and  prejudices long enough to fairiy-  carefuliy psras-s the article.  A modern philosopher has said  it is a good thing to stop once in  awhile and size things up. This  applies to the spiritual as well as  the material, and this dissertation;  on the political, shall we say, or  economic- and spiritual, nhasiea of  our present-day existence will re^  pay all for the time they require i&  carefully read, mark, learn and  inwardly digest the same.  Mr. Bowser's utterances since the  Vancouver landslide are such as to  brand him as a game fighter. The  people's voice must prevail and any  attempt to hang on to office in the  face of adverse public opinion but  jeopardizes the sooner return of the  party to power.  The party has a constructive  policy to offer. The electorate  should have an opportunity to pass  judgment on it at the earliest  possible moment so that those  fathering it may go on with the  undertakings with that confidence  that can only come from a knowledge that the people are behind  them���������or go out of office "beaten,  but, thank God, not disgraced." as  Liberals were wont to speak of  Laurier after that memorable  September of 1911.  overrun, while those who stand by  through good report and ill are  never numerous, particularly in the  politioal arena when it comes to  leading and financing a forlorn  hope.  Not for many years has the  party io*and itself in the trying  position it now is, right on the  eve of a general eleotion. With  success in the constituency uncertain, and the outcome of the  provincial polling still more unfavorable looking, the crop of  candidates eager and anxious to  capture the nominating convention  naturally promises to be slim.

Seriously speaking, though, the  present emergency is one* that  promises to separate the wheat  frqm^h-6 chaff both as affecting the  ^j-Mrank and file as well as with those  who aspire to represent the Conservative party at Victoria.

Flummer-  Speaking purely from the material  standpoint, if there is nothing for  it but the cool shades of opposition  surely for past favors the strongest  r.didate should not  step into the beach.  Or to prevent the semblance of  giving the lie direct to oft-repeated  assertions that the government's  policies are in B.C.*s best interests,  the best possible fight must be  made. Or, on the plea that a  strong opposition is necessary to  ensure good government surely  some stalwart of outstanding ability  will enter the fray���������provided  always that the assurance that  Neil F. Mackay, M.P.P., did not  intend to be a candidate is correct.  If that gentleman has been halting  between two opinions henow knows  where his duty lies.  This is testing time for Kaslo  Conservatives. On all counts the  cry is for "men whom the lust of  office does not kill; men whom the  spoils of office cannot buy," both  in the party's and the country's  welfare. The journey through the  opposition wilderness looms up  large on the horizon; in its extremity the party demands and  deserves the support of the strongest available candidate.....

Brewster,  the provincial Liberal leader.  There  may be some   who   wiii  delude   themselves  into  believing  that this revereei.f������dk)wing so closely  on a similarly disastrous defeat in  Vancouver the Saturday  previous,  is simply a minor lapse of the party  at thfe capita] to  provide Premier  Bowser with some needed   opposition.    Those, hrwever, who discern  the signs of the times do not take  that roseate view of the  situation,  and are just a little concerned as to  what the Premier's next move will  be.  Of course Mr. Bowser will go  through with the session. The  members need th������ sessional indemnity, while the premier has given  definite assurance that ho will bring  down some advanced legislation in  the interests of chip butlding,  agriculture, the lumber industry,  prohibition, an well as on behalf of  labor. With an opposition of but  tour memboro there ohould bo little  delay in getting thoso measured, as  well as the year'a supply, through  tho house, and then���������to the country?  That is a question, of course, a  party caucus must decide���������and in  the affirmative if it is well nd vised.  The Negative Side of This  Season's Forttnost Debate  Subject: Resolved.

So much  for Socialism, which we hope may  have helped to bring it clearer to your  minds.  Now briefly at* to i-eligiou, modei-ii,  present day religions if you will. We  find Religion defined as follows: Tho  recognition of God as an objoct of  worship.lovo and obedience; tho wholo  relation and duty of man towardsGod.  Of a futuro state of rewards ond punishments. Theology, divinity, any  system or mode of faith and worship.  Since there are about 299 different  sects or religions, which may bo judg-  wl as the right, if any, iu the confusion  of tongues we aro lost. However wc  wish you to observe that modern religion as preached today, and Christianity ns proachod and practised by its  founder 20 centuries ago, aro as far  apart in principles and truth as the  poles are asunder. Possibly you may  never hayo reasoned on thismattov, so  wo will givo you further light on this  particular point, because it brings out  also tho other point wo mado mention  of previous, whon wo stated that present day religion was a hindrance  rathor than a help towards solving  pr������*������-������*������nt day qoeial ovlla. Ah one writer puts it, "Nineteen hundred years  ago when another civilization was  developing monstrous inequalities,  when tho masses oyorywhoro wero  being ground into hopeless slavery,  there arose in a Jewish village an un-  tenmied carpenter, who. weoi-ning* the  orthodoxies, doctrines and ritualism  '���������    _'M������'   ft......  t v> tt  I'. % ......x..������     ....   ���������������*<.'������.....  fli-horinen a temporal andaocial gospel  of the .(.mli.y and brotherhood of  num.

But his ideas having the germ  of truth in them spread abroad among  the downtrodden and the slaves of  his time, made its way against power  and persecution, and for some^two or  three centuries it really was a religion  ���������one of love and brotherhood, that  which its originator intended it should  be.  But there conies a time when it become respectable. It is made the  religion of the governing class���������the  religion of emperors. It is mado over  to suit pagan and Christian, and in  consequence becomes debased, a matter of mere convention, a religion recast in pagan moulds and adopted for  convenience and selfish ends of a class  whose chief interest lay in the exploitation of thoir people.  Thoy carved tho offlgy of tho man  of tho people In tho courts, and on tho  tomb of kings, and in his name consecrated inequality, wrcating his  temporal and social gospel to tho defence of social injustice. ThnB wo  havo today Christalnity as believed  in and preached by Its founder 20  centuries ago, prostituted to servo tho  wealthy and privileged class (In  maintaining an unjust exploiting social  system) under the guise of religion.  A religion be it t>a!d of abstract theology, dogmas, creeds, and doctrines,  tho fall of man, sin and oalvation,  .miracles, divinity, angch*. hell, damnation, and eternal punishment.

Where, we repeat, is the power of the churches and the followers*  of religion in this world crisis?  Do we observe the various religious  bodies in Germany striving for, or advocating peace, or making any overtures to their co-religionists of tin-  other nations concerned, towards ending this human slaughter ? We look  in vain. As another well puts it "The  European war has shocked millions to  a realization of the monstrous servility  of the various churches and religions  to the capitalist rulers of the world."  Despite the efforts of Socialists to  restrain the lust for war, Europe has  been transformed into a bloody shambles. On one side is atheistic and  Protc������tant'Englund,Catholic Belgium,  Budhist Japan, Greek Catholic Russia,  and atheistic Franco.

A specter that should  drive homo to tho brain of everyone  tho overleaping fact that capitalism  forces religion and national differences  into its conimi n purpose of commercial  conquest.  And yet in tho faco of those things  wo are naked to boltovc that Socialism  (the only party on top of the earth today that has put itself on record aw  opposed to war and favoring abiding  peace) cannot solve or euro present  day social evils without the aid of  religion, oi roligioiiri, v.Jiic-. lum Uacu  shown are the servants of those who  aro tho benollciarioa and upholders of  this unjust exploiting social system,  that Socialism, or the Socialist movement, is tttrivhig to ia.boli._h with the  evils thereof, aa evident in present  day society as between muiti-miliion-  alro������ and misery multiplied, until we  wonder not at tho African chief h comment, tut ho lenrns of the present war  waging, ho is led to say "Ah, tho uncivilized heathen."

We come now to put forth; a few  general thoughts and deductions along  the Socialist line of reasoning, though  crude they may be, it should be evident  to the ordinary observer that the evils  . afflicting human society are here as  the natural results, or fruits ������Af an unjust   man-made   social   system,    and  operation of wrong or unjust economic  principles.   Thus  we   fail   to see or  discern   where  tbe  super-riaiux*a- or.  religious-touches or pertains to the  matter at all.   We   observe   natural  law reigns supreme and inviolate,  in  all fields or activity, be it chemistry,  astronomy  or  sociology   making no  difference; as also cause and effeet are  certain and inseparable.    Consequently by logical reasoning we are led to  affirm that the social evils afflicting  human society today are here as the  natural results of an unjust economic  social system, established by man, and  whatsoever man  has brought about  he can also undo,  change or reconstruct at any time he so wills it, sis'the  growth of social instinct, or shall  we  say the social conscience enlighten his  ��������� mind  to  see   and  do,   supernatural  religion notwithstanding.  or  of  \W\\\m  WU  tlai-dy, northern-grown stock  of the following varieties f  Senator Dunlap, Parson's Beauty  6ien Mary and Magoon  100 Plants, postpaid, $1.50  1,000 Plants, f.o.b. here, $6.56  t.o.!  10% ;D!������M OR a!!  remittance In full,  before _naroti  orders, wltli  received  next,  Monrad Wigen  Wynndel, B.C*  mmWmmmm  Wynndel Box Factory  WYNNDEL, B.C.

Man as we see him today is  the product, or sum total of all that  has gone before. The character of  man is formed by two predominating  causes* namely; Hereditary, as of the  past, and Environment, as of the present conditions under which man  makes his living.  John Burns once made the remark  in the British house of parliament,  "What can you expect out of ditty  mean streets but dirty mean people";  product of environment largely.  If .you wish a slave to show the  yirtues of a free man first make him  free; in other words change conditions.  Herbert Spencer has said "There is no  morality until self-preservation is  made secure." .And yet in all these  matters religion conies along and  argues the reverse, placing the emphasis on the spiritual before the  temporal, the soul' as before the body,  and. right today religion as we obserye  it is without any practical temporal  gospel of social. salvation still persists  in placing the emphasis in the wrong  place to evolve one* :'  Neither are we overlooking the fact  that religion through the churches  dispenses charity to suffering, humanity, and parades its philanthrophy to  the world. However, all these efforts,  it matters not how well-intentioned,  are but ameliorative Or palliative, and.  accomplish nothing in the sum total  toward permanent human uplift,  betterment and progress. All this is  merely endeavoring to take "care of  effects, leaving causes untouched.  Methinks that which humanity  the world stands in greatest need  today is not Charity ('tainted charity')  but Justice, social and economic, We  say "tainted charity" advisedly, because, if you search you will find that  the well-to-do class which is benefiting  by this present unjust system, that  Socialism is seeking to abolish, are  large contributors to charitable institutions, and through their organized  bodies dispense soup to the hungry  and clothes to the naked, oblivious ��������� to  the fact, apparently, that hunger,  want and nakedness is traceable to the  superfluous wealth accruing to them  through the workings of an unjust exploiting social system.        ... .  However,, on the other ^Kand, let it  be said that we view it as neither  needful or necessary in any-manner,  sense or degree, that we  be religious in order to be pro__  to feed the hungry, help, the needy,  or clothe the naked. The social impulses permeating common humanity  prompt or bring us to do those things  for our less fortunate fellow-man, and  methinks were present in . the human  long before. religion was known or  discovered.  Further, let us taken, vit^y of things  in their proper order, andv logical  sequence. Herbert Spencer some  where states that the basis'of life is  physical, and we realize today as in all  the past that the hunian. has wants  co-existent with his appearing on this  planet, and thoso three first essential  wants to his existence are what, rnatk  you, Religion, Astronomy, or Theology? Oh no, Mr. Chairman, in big  letters they read Pood, Clothing and  Shelter.  Is not that no. Likewise does it not  stand as an indisputable fact that beforo you enn talk to a man about any  of-the flrBt-nu'nfcionodthihgfl, of necessity ho must ln> a live man, and in  order to hayo a live man human wants  must be Hatisticcl with the latter things  mentioned, and bo it further said that  tho gicatcst problem facing tho groat  mass of humanity today, is this solf-  sn.mn thing, tho ovor pressing necessity of securing tho necessities of life,  and that undov a* system which loaves  huuwin bclngnto otarve to death midst  a world of plenty, ��������� and a flystom that  jails men for'(.peaking the truth even  within our own country.

What think you ; does this  attitude appeal to your reasoning  minds as anything in the nature of a  present aid to the Socialist movement  in its endeavor to ' abolish present-day  social evils, and injustices? We say  Nay! Nay! ,^  Or, take another line of reasoning.  In the case of;bne being sick, the physician prescribes medicine and recovery follows. ,: But following the line of  argument adduced here this evening  it would appear that. a little religion  mixed in vwitl^A the medicine would  prove more .btSeaeious. Just so, along  the same line^bf- reasoning,- human society is sick,' suffering from and traceable to an unjust, man-made social  and economic system. Scientific Soe-  iallsin,(the physioian) has discovered,  diagnosed, and disclosed the cause, and  also has prescribed the medicine, or  remedy, which is-nothing short of the  abolition of the cause aforementioned,  and the establishing of a just social  and economic system. - But, say the  advocates.'6C religion, it cannot he  done-unaided by religion. We . respectfully decline to accept the advice,  and view it a-a being entirely extraneous or foreign to the case or its  solution.  In conclusion, then, permit us to say  that we have, endeavored to tell you  briefly of Socialism, its aims and  objects; as likewise something of the  nature or diameter of modern religion  aa it appears to ns. If we have erred  it has not been done 'with intent in  either case. If there be any point of  contact, sympathy or support possiblo  or feasible between the two we fu.il to  discern it.

The Bank reports net profits for  the year amounting to $650,688, which  compares with $712,440 in 1914 (a  very moderate reduction,, having regard to the prevailing conditions,  which have been universally unfavorable to profitable bank operations);  they represent 13.2 per cent, on the  capital stock, and sufficed for the payment of the full regular dividends of  8 per cent, and the bonus of 1 per  cent., together with the appropriation  of $150,000 to Contingent Account,  the payment of War Tax of $45,-  730.77, and the usual contribution of  $10,000 to Officers' Pension Fund,  while the balance carried forward is  increased by some $3,956, and now  amounts to $106,976.75. It is worthy of  note that this Bank has passed  through the entire three years, 1913,  1914 and 1915, maintaining its dividends and bonuses, its pension contribution, its provision for depreciation  and contingencies, its special taxes  and sundry patriotic donations, and  j all without having to draw upon ac-  I    r,..^.,.l^.  n.) .^-.r.XZX~        ���������������������       Tt^r.X X   _.������._.. ~~-*-  V>t__XU_U-.C4.l.t-;\X       \JX\J11XCJ       tJX        1VCOU ^XtJKj^t HAIL,  and  with an  annual increase  in the  profit balance  carried forward.

Public School Inspector Dovo, Nelson, paid the Creston school an official  visit on Tuesday and Wednesday.
