 Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1916  No. 27  1  r  Mr. Scott, principal of the Kaslo  school, along with Mrs* Scott, are  here for the summer, with Mr. and  Mrs. A. Otme.ron.  Rev. J. S. Mahood of Queen's Bay  spent a day sight seeing on at the lookout station last week, the guest of H.  Hamilton.  The trustees have re-engaged Miss  Ella Dow as teacher for the school for  the ensuing year.  To date W. K. Kemp reports a  strawberry export of 230 crates and  is confident of making the even 250  before the season ends.  Raspberry, pickers will find a warm  welcome out here at present. Nearly  every rancher could employ one or  two of them.  Alex. Duperry has erected a new  front, gate on his place here and also  put an addition to his barn in order to  store his 1916 hay crop proyerly. His  last stack of the 1915 crop is moving  this week to Canyon City mill. There  were some 40 tons in it and realized  $18 a ton, we are informed.  Ira Beam is busy picking the finest  crop of Bing cherries ever seen in the  Erickson district. Teddy Haskins is  hoping to make the same report of a  small crop of melons he is experimenting with. His corn will undoubtedly  be the best here.  was  a  Creston callers this week were Mrs.  T������rf-*i<ioV*t.*������T           ���������    XiflOD          ' T^wit-ttn-tS\*%             MoCJjl)oiVloCi  ���������������������!������������������>->* ���������W.Jp*^' m i,T^lH0 jt,   *.\j>\s\j^r������. y i.������j������.-   Tuohey, Good and Dennes.

Mrs. and Miss Bohrraan of Calgary,  who haye been guests at the C.P.R,  house for the past week, returned to  Calgary on Tuesday.  soil   reiAiriieu  to  A. W. MasOn has been chosen trustee in place of A. Matthews,, who now  resides at Trail.; This, year's board is  made up of John Miller, Victor Carr  and Mr. Mason;' with Guy Constable  as auditor.  Between haying and the raspberry  harvest the busy bee has nothing on  residents in these parts for busyness  these days.  The trustees are calling for tenders  for painting the school building. The  improvement is badly needed.   In at  TJ������T 1-1         la!_1   Raspberry picking will begin in real  earnest by Monday. Between the  large crate being used this year, the  scarcity of pickers and som-a doubt as  to good price rasps, are giving some of  the growers considerable to worry  about this year.  At the annual school meeting on  July.8th the. vacancies in the t*restee  board were filled, and B. Dew chosen  as auditor. Our education department this year will consist of Messrs.  Littlejohn, Craigie and Kemp.  Several consecutive days of hot diy  weather is what's wanted by gentlemen who have cloyer either cut or  ready foi* the mower. The wetness  the early part of the week did some  damage.  R. Lamont has his 20 acres of clover  ent already and it sure is the dandiest  crop of the. kind ever taken off here.  Potatoes are.exceptionally promising in this section up to the present.  Tomatoes are also filling out and the  early birds should soon be .ready for  ..reporting.  When the road work in this district  is undertaken those waterworks company excayations should receive drastic treatment���������and the bill sent lo the  company. These hillocks are decidedly unhealthy for loads of soft fruit  going to market.  J. M. Craigie is Erickson's strawberry king, for 1910 at least. His export in this line has reached 850 crates.  He will have almost 800 crates of  raspberries and black berries as well,  from present appearances.  Cran  Rev. R. E. Pow of Creston took the  Presbyterian service here on Tuesday  evening. -  J. S. Deschamps of Nelson was a  Sirdar caller on Wednesday between  trains.  Representing quarrying interests in  Calgary, J. Wilson of that city is here  with a view to taking out more granite from Atbara Siding, the scene of  former operations of that nature.  Trsgsis0s ffl&si  Creston's new board of school trustees had their inaugural meeting on  Tuesday evening, with the members  all present. Trustee Cherrington was  unanimously elected chairman foi* the  ensuing year, with F. H. Jackson,  secretary treasurer, and C. F. Hayes  reappointed secretary to the board.  It was also resolved that the board  shall hold monthly meeting���������the third  Monday in each month.  There was only one vacancy on the  teaching staff to be filled���������that of  vicerprincipal���������and as. there were  several applications oh file for the  position a selection was made and the  secretary instructed to get in cQm-  munication with him forthwith.  Tenders will also be asked for the position of janitor, and also for the job of  kalsoming the interior of tho school.  So far as the funds available will  permit the salaries in arrears to June  30th will be paid px-o rata. The ti-eas-  urer was instructed to go thoroughly  into the books to ascertain the amount  stiil accruing due the district on unpaid balances of sums voted at previous  annual meetings and notify the education department of the urgency of  immediate payment of the amount  coming to the school district in the  matter.  The Go-it Mountain - Waterworks  Co. is also to be asked to install a  meter in the school building in connection with the domestic  water   supply.  has the best of us.  Raspberry shipping is ��������� to the fore  at the Smith difpot now, although the  berries are later here than expected.  Among the bigger shippers are R.  Hood, who expects to have 250 erates.  Reed & Mather 500 ahd W. A. Pease  over 400.  The first of the "v alley's 1916 potato  crop" wont out on Tuesday, the Hood  ranch being the leader in the export  of the Irish apples this year. R.  Stewart has a grand showing of them,  some of which should be moving this  week.  This year it is the July drop that is  thinning out the apple crop to quite  an.extent, particularly the Mcintosh  Reds, which have suffered seyerely.  The Jonathans have also suffered. On  the Carr ranch some of the trees have  shed almost 80 per cent, of. an excellent eariy-season yield.  July building permits  sheds   on   the    Pease  ranches.  C.

Sir Penywern's heart sank. The  knowledge/ that Daphne had left the  house, wandering- oft through ihe  wood in the dusk without any message,  any hint as to the hour of her return, filled him with sudden and  fresh appvohensions.  For the first time it flashed into  his mind that, overcome by the horror of the tragedy "in which she had  been involved, his young wife might  have conceived the awful thought of  making away with herself .  It struck him with a desolating  sense of tragedy that the servant  should be asking a question about  such a simple domestic affair as dinner*, when such awful issues hung upon the. next few hours.  He turned round vaguely, not answering al. lirst.  Tim  man  repeated  his question.  Sir Penywern  shook his head.  "Yon can have it kept back a liitle  while." lie saiel.

I hit ho ri'covei'od his n.'-i've,  and drawing the. sofa back, looked  down on the carpet.  Then he stood motionless, sturinK  steadily, breathing hard, a cold chill  creeping down his hack, and his limbs  becoming as it paralysed by a great,  vague, now terror.  There on the* carpet at his feet,  where the sofa, had stood, there was a  litlln red slain, which had attracted  the. attention of the butler.  But. of the body whieh had lain  tliere. less than un hour before tliere  was now no other trace than thai.  At fii.-l.

To believe tliat a delieately-breet  .young woman, who was se> much appalled by the accident that she dared  not -speak ot it not even to her hushand, would have had the nerve anel  thi* courage to carry off the boely of  the dead man ami put it in somo fresh  place of concealment was impossible.  Xot that Daphne was feeble of limb:  she was a well grown woman, used to  an open air life, and not wanting in  physical agility and strength; and  Katbbono was a thin", poorly elevelop-  eel creature, whose weight could never  have been more than seven or  stone.  But although such a feat as her removal of his body was physically impossible, the improbability of it was  so great that "Sir Penywern rejeeteel  altogether that solution of the mystery.  A new thought suggested itself.  Was the death of Rathbone the result of a quarrel among the servants?  He was very unpopular. He may have  been quarrelsome, anel he was certainly a man of somewhat elubious  character and perhaps criminal antecedents. The. butler anel the two footmen had constant access to the study,  and if one of the men had found Kath-  bone tampering with "their master's  cupboards anei drawers, and playing  with his revolver, it was conceivable  that a fatal quarrel might easily have  been provoked.  Was Feniftr himself, the faithful  old servant, the culprit?  Jt struck Sir Penywern, as he re-  flc*cted on the probabilities, that the  butler had been unusually loquacious  since the affair. And he was an olel  soldier, used to firearms.  The more he consideretl this hypothesis, the more liklihood there  seemed to hiin to be that it was the  right one. True. Fenner had been  startled at the sight of the stain under  the sofa; but that might have been  because he was afraid of his master's  noticing it, anel asking questions as  to how it came there.  But then Daphne* If Fenner had  murdered Kutlibone, and she had  found tlie dead man on the study floor,  the last thing she would have done  would be to hide the body; her first  impulse would have been to alarm the  household, and to have the matter  investigated.  And so after all iiis hard "thinking  the unfortunate baronet was forced  back to the same terrible truth; hi:  wife knew something about the death  of Ituthbom*. anel had done her best  to put off confession of whut she knew.  Hud the shock of the discovery  rendered her for the time scarcely  more than half-sane? Was she, absorbed as lu*. knew her to be in a sort  of worship of her husband's work and  the. importance of it, anxious to keep  from his knowledge the. ugly slory of  what had happened? Was she, knowing  his horror of gossip anel scandal, trying to hush up tint affair, and involving herself in untolel difficulties in  the. loyal attempt?  This seemed by no means an impossible solution of the- mystery. If  Daphne, having accidentally killed  Ihilhbone, or having seen hiin killed  by somebody else, had conceived the.  idea of getting the assistanco of the  butler in covering up the mystery,  Fonner would have, been equal to tho  nec'ision, and would have seized the  first, opportunity of removing thu body  from the house.  Half the ft ing of the scandal which  lho discovery of the body would cause,  would be gone*, if poor llnthbono were  found dead in the wood or in the  meadows outside lhe park; and not.  within the four walls of Redgrange  Hall.  Sn reasoned Sir Penywern with considerable aeuteness, feeling indeed a  seine oT relief tlmt at any rate the  body war, gone, and one. difficulty at  Je.-p-l ui-pn.-i-d of "lot a ii/ue al bat.  Hut there remained two questions  which, try as hi: mil-lit to bi'U.di them  aside, and to look upon them as less  pressini!' than Ihey had_ been, could  not bnt si and out, uiennedng and ugly.  He crossed the room and threw open  one of iho win.lows that, faced the sea.  Tie heard the* sound of voices, and  elisliugnished the hoarse tones and  east-country accent of the stable-boy  whom lie had chased and caught half  an hour before. Xo doubt, the lad was  now the hero of the moment among  the rest, of the population of the  stables, anel was telling his companions, with pieturesuc exaggeration,  the story lie hael fold his master. He  had aehnitteei having seen Lady Trade-  scant cross the garden anel go into  the wood, sine! he hael spoken iu such  a way as to suggest that there was  something Strang'.: about her appearance.  What, more was he telling the  grooms?  Sir Penywern took ont of his pocket  the scrap of black lace which he, had  i found on the thorn-bush. Without,  of course', being able to swear to its  having been torn from the scarf which  Daphne so often wore, he could feel  no doubt that this was the case, and  the fact showed the. haste, and impatience which must have charcterized  her flight through the  wood.  Suddenly the questions about, the  death of Itathhone melt eel into insignificance in his mind, leaving only  Ithe pressing, agonizing doubt" as to  what had become of his wife.  Had she fled from her husband's  house in a. frenzy of  horror at what  slie.- hael seen?  Did she, propose to pay that visit,  to the Cicllibrands about which sh������  had spoken to liim? Was she intent  on starting at once without notice^  without preparation?  Hut then iha way to the station was  in another direction. The path through  the wood leel to the, meadows, and  across them to the village of Searnarsh  a mile off. The nearest town and  station. Marsh Dutton, were away to  the south, and to reach them the way  lay along the drive through the  garden.  He shut the window in a spasm of  uneasy questionings, anel walked towards the door.  As he reacheel it there" rang through,  the house the sound of the dressing  gong.  A ray of hope shot through hiss  heart as the familiar sound reached  his ears anel lie realizeel the blessing  of the peaceful comfort of every day.  It seemed to him that this sounel  must betoken some return to the  pleasant commonplaces of domestic  life, and as he went out into the passage and met the butler coming from  the hall, h*?* noteel with relief that  Fenner was looking less gloomy. ���������  i,To   be   continued)  The suggestion is being piit forward  that a fhig slioulel be designed as the  Standard of the Allied Nations.  tie- in ��������� av  bill     tho*-e  be     tl IP ted  ��������� ' e    'em.  lit    III    b  .,   1,'Jig.  1  a nv-  ,"ort  aliV  'I   blM  wort:,  tl.ii,!-  arnidsl  h  the   confusion   and   doubt   in  ���������     InWel.

Whilo improving its)  ^ already vory eon.siderablo percentage  } of quick .assets, tlio Bank naturally  had to suffer a decrease of profits.  These however have, been better than  mi-ih't have been supposed, and were  sufficient to pay the regular dividends  even after liberal contributions to  Patriotic and Red Cross Funds, and  the payment of almost Sixty 'Eight  thousand Dollars as War Tax on Circulation.  Including the balance brought for-  *. ward from last yoar of two hundred  and. forty-five thousand dollars, the  Net Profits after full provision for all  charges, etc., amounted to almost  twelve hundred thousand dollars.  While the Shareholders will feel  specially gratified at this, the public  at large will rejoice especially at the  very large percentage of the quick  assets, which amount fo ? 40,960,486,  being in excess of 50 per cent of the  Bank's total liabilities to the public.  Of this amount no less than sixteen  millions are in coin, Dominion notes  and other cash equivalents.  As an indication of improved conditions, one notes an expansion of about  one million and a half in Loans and  discounts���������iu Canada, and a similar  amount in Call Loans, while notes  in circulation have increased by about  twelve hundred thousand dollars. Deposits are at high water mark standing at 72 millions, almost 10 millions  more than in 1915.  It is of interest to note that the  fifty million mark in deposits was  passed by this Bank only in 1910���������  so that in the six years an improvement in this head of almost 50 per  cent, is noted.  The report is another proof that  War conditions are not without their  compensations as now that the first  shock is over conditions arc notably  better than previous to Aug. 4th, 1914.  $1,000 REWARD  First Aid Work  Valuable  by  Sugar-Dressing   for   Hun   Wounds  Sugar-dressing for the wounds of  German soldiers is tha latest provision  of the science department in the service of the army.

R. employees  have taken advantage of the free  course of training offered, and now  no less than 825 ladies have taken out  the certificate of qualification from  the Association.  Under the auspices of the C. P. R.  Centre instruction was given to the  Borden Battery and Ammunition Column before leaving Montreal for the  front. Afterwards the certificates of  merit were presented to the officers  and men by His Royal Highness the  Duke of Connaught."  An important feature of the work of  the C. P. R. Centre was the bringing  of a large number of lady clerks of  the C. P. R. in touch with the Red  Cross Society, an organization to  which they proved a valuable asset.  Three men were saved from drowning at Winnipeg by WT. T. Davies, C.  P. R. ambulance instructor, and William Newcombe, C. P. R.. constable.  Sir Donald Cameron presented the  medal of tho Royal Canadian Humane  Society to each in recognition of their  bravery.  Particulars were obtainable of.3,780  cases where first aid had been administered by members of the C. P.. R.  'Centre. The cases were thus divided:  Atlantic Centre, 9; Eastern Division,  130;   Ontario   Division,   136;   western  1'.irvo     1 /rtrt  a.*.J~o,    xty^rxtt.  Concluding the report the C. P. R.  Centre pays a glowing tribute to the  late Lieutenant-Colonel Lacy R. Johnson, who had been chairman of the  Centre under review and also of the  whole Association. During his time as  chairman nearly 7,000 employees of  the C. P. R. passed the qualifying examinations, and in this way made  themselves better citizens of the Dominion.

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JULY 21  Says the Nelson Daily News:  The shipment from the Creston  district of straight carloads of  strawberries to Winnipeg and the  arrival of tbe consignments in first  class condition is a notable incident  in the development of the small  fruit industry in Kootenay and  Boundary.  It speaks for the high quality of  the fruit of the Creston district, for  the excellent methods of packing  adopted and for the satisfactory  transportation facilities provided  on the railroad.  school management the sidestepping  is lamentable.  The Review long ago pointed  out the injustioe of the present  system. While we are not sure of  the outcome there is no time like  the present to force the issue all  along the line.  m  And let us hope that this prospective set-to with the power's that  be over things educational may  prove s. real blessing in disguise���������  as it has some of the earmarks of  doing, if the department cumes  back with the very likely argument  that Creston can avoid all this  difficulty in future by organizing  the Valley, or part, of it, into a  rural municipality.  And surely it is high time this  municipality  Ti* tr_-j....   xx ivwwruay  and Boundary can  sell its berries in Winnipeg it j ton. with  means that this district's market  territory for small fruits is very  much larger than was anticipated  a few years ago.

At the inaugural meeting on  Tuesday night these gentlemen re-1  affirmed their intention of financing'  the school on a business basis, or  know the reason why. In short,  they propose t������* have it out with  the education department on the  matter of a thorough and prompt  collection of school taxes.  The trustees assert, and rightly  so, that as the government undertakes the assessing and collecting  of the rates, if there is any fall  down in the work the government  must adopt other menus of keeping  the school financed. The trustees  announce they will not borrow  money for school purposes on their  personal note. They will close the  school, if necessary, rather than  adopt this borrowing policy.  Even should it go to the extremity of closing tho school the trustees  will have the support of all in  fighting the good fight. All are  agreed that those willing to assume  the management of school affairs  should not have to pledge their  personal credit to keep a public  institution going, neither should  they have to put up with the unpleasant task of "standing oil"  teachers with salaries in arrears,  and others who render the school  services in other capacities, until  such time as an indulgent government coaxes in a few hundred  dollars in  taxes.  If the authorities aro not already  aware- of tlio injustices aiul defects  of tin* present rural school financing  regulations the sooner those imperfections uri; brought vory forcibly  to (heir intention so much the  hotter for all concerned, and lttlfi  is about, uy- likely a year as we will  iiuve [.u ^i-i i'Uh;k ui-tion unci redress  in th**  premises.

"There is that scattereth,  and yet increaseth; and there is  that witlioldeth more than is meet,  but it tendeth to poverty'"  thing, but with the doctor as  standard bearer the fight there  will be equally as spectacular as  the clash in Kaslo.  Premier Bowser and ���������"���������arfcv are  now touring the Kootenay country,  and with nomination day less than  two weeks distant, it cannot be  long now until political discussions  take precedence over observations  on the weather, the apple crop and  the probability of late haying on  the flats.  The Old Complaint  x<irvutg  uuiiigo  S.J.'  While both the political parties  are marking time insofar as Kaslo  constituency is concerned, things  area bit more stirring in the ridings  tc the east and west of us, particularly in Conservative circles.  In what looks to have been a  bit of "machine" work to euchre T.  D. Caven, the former member, out  of the 1916 nomination at Cranbrook, the party now finds itself  saddled with two candidates: A. E.  Watts, nominated at the regularly-  constituted convention, and Mr.  Caven the choice of the '"young"  Conservatives. Both announce  they are in the field to stay, and it  is possibly well that it should be  so.  Regardless of who comes out it  is protty generally conceded that  Dr. King, Liberal, is a sure winner.  So there is nothing to lose and  everything to gain by allowing both'  tho others to run and kill off two  unlikely birds with ono stone. With  both theso gentlemen decorating  the has been class tho party will bo  iu hotter shape to mako a frosh and  a, united start in tho next contest.  Neither ono of tho gentlemen aro  very representative of Conservatism, though with all his short-  coinings it can ho truly said Caven  in to bo preferred above the WuUh-  burg windjammer.

I note with  interest a communication which my  recent talk in your city has brought  forth While my lecture naturally  led me tc a discussion of Socialism as  a product of Materialist Philosophy I  did uot enter into detailed discussion  of its economic aspects. However as  my good Socialist friend Mr. Embree  has taken me to task I take this opportunity of replying briefly.  First, understand I am dealing with  Socialism pure and simple, and not  with Mr. Embree's mistaken conceptions of Socialism, which might be  termed Embreeism.  I take it however that my friend admits the first principle of Socialism.  viz. Economic Determinism, from  which it naturally follows that "the  mode of production of the material  .requirements   determines  the general  **!-��������������� a vi ������*"*������������������������ 4* ������-������������ a   *������������������������������       4r V* rt   n<\/������������ nt I w*.S* 1 ? ���������-������ /> ��������� a 1        tiTnil  l/llUt.

I may say that I  have some admiration (though piriful)  for the out and out materialist hut  these pseudo Christian-Socialists, to  [employan emphatic plebian expression  "get my goat"  I cannot see, as Mr. Embree states,  that Socialism will do away with the  incentive to steal when it is to be  ushered in with wholesale theft and  robbery. They would expropriate  without compensation "all active  capital" and one of their journals,  Wilshiro's, says, "And of course we  include in this brood .definition of  capital tho land upon which our  private houses stand . . The emancipation of labour can only be accomplished when all capital isowned by labour."  To confiscate all lucrative property is  declared by every Socialist platform  an absolute necessity for the introduction of the Co-operative Commonwealth, and tints without compensation.  It it: not true that labour produces  about ijilO daily and gets only $2. No  argument appeals with greater force  to the toiler than that his labour has  produced al) the wealth he sees about  him. Tho greater .part of the product  of modern industry in due to mental  ability but it takes something more  than either physical or mental labour,  it requires capital to supply the raw  materials and buy the tools-. It is  ehiiiiiHU-u that capital gets only U%  of the joint product of capital and  labour while labour gets approximately IH%.  With regard to religion your correspondent seems to be one of the unsophisticated who has been told that  Socialism stands for everything good.  The leaders of his party however liavo  no delicacy about publishing their  viovv.N an tho '-ncstiolj of religion and  show an utter lack of tolerance for  tho religion* 1-oiivictiniiH of otheris.

The American party has adopted this plank: "As an American  Socialist party we pledge our fidelity  to the principles of International  Socialism as embodied in the united  thought and action of the Socialist*  of alf nations."  As   to   revoletion   they   expect   to  bl-ino?  O m V'llsuiWAjcii f  change bj* ballot if possible; by violence if uecessary, and the latter  methods seems to be favoured by a  majority.  With regard to free love this naturally follows from the destruction of  private property and a disregard for  the sacredness of the marriage relation.  The baldest free. love, is taught in1  books that are recommended, as welf  as printed, by Socialist publishing  houses, as e.g. Carpenter's "Love's  Coming of Age"; Keer's "The Polly of  Being Good"; Bebel's "Woman." The  International Socialist Review glorified ex-Reverend George t). Kerron'H  love union with another woman while  he had a wife living in poverty, and  nominated it a "Socialist Wedding."  Marris and Bax in their "Socialism,Its  Growth and Outcome" counted that  "marriage should be a voluntary  association, dissoluble by either party  afc pleasure."  I might go on indefinitely quoting  such ptissages but these are sufficient  to indicate that Socialism actiyely  advocates "Free Love."

But my remarks in this connection  would be incomplete without a reference to the free love episode of Miss  Eleanor Marx, the daughter of the  founder of Socialism. She said in  Chicago: "'Love is the only recognized marriage in Socialism, consequently no bonds of any kind would be required. Divorce would be impossible,  as there would be nothing to divorce,  for when love ceased separation would  naturally ensue." She was at the  time travelling in America with Dr.  Aveiing, as Mrs. Aveling, though her  companion than had a wife liy ing in  London. When the wife died he cast  off Miss Marx and married another,  upon which the free-loye wife committed suicide. Socialism would indeed make "A Nation of Fatherless  Children."  They are also fond of saying that  economic conditions are responsible  for rampant divorce and domestic  strife, j. here seem to be more unhappy marriBges in the upper classes  and these surely cannot be attributed  to adverse economic conditions.  A good  way of testing the theory  of   Socialism   is  by   constructing   an  imaginary   commonwealth,   applying  the   recognized   and   universally   admitted    principles .of   International  Socialism   in    its    construction.    All  Socialists are agreed  that the means  of production and distribution must  be  turned over to society to be administered for the  benefit of all.    By  preventing   private   enterprise   from  entering the field of production,   as  well as of distribution,   that  competition   that it lowering   man's   wages,  will be done away with.    The labourer will be allowed to purchase  whatever he pleases with his labour-checks.  He may purchase as much or as little  as he has a mind to;  but he can buy  only from the state.    Picture to yourself   all   the stores,   shops,  factories,  farms,   railroads,   steamships, trolley  lines, construction   works, newspaper  establishments, professions, etc., owned and administered by the general or  local government.    Our cities cannot  give us to-day two things so simple as  pure water and clean streets; by "what  magic will they  be made capable  of  doing the thousands of things implied  in production and distribution.  Thegcollectivist system would require  a t remenduous expansion of government, machinery. Everything Would  need to be regulated by boards and  committees. How many committees  would be required for the management of the distributory stores of any  large city? There would be no reason  why clerks should put themselves out  to please their customers, .for it would  be of no benefit to them whether they  buy or not. . Overseers would be  needed to force clerks to do their duty,  Committees would be.needed to watch  the overseers, and so on indefinitely.  Wbat is every-bsdy's business is nobody's business Should you ask for  what is no kept in stock the clerk  might promise to get it for you, provided the manufacturer's committee  can be convinced that you ought to  have it. Remember there will be no  competition to make producers anxious  to please. An author may desire* a  book published: the state decides  whether his ideas shall be given to the  public or uot. Newspapers would be  published solely in the interest of the  Socialist state. Freedom of the press  would of course disappear. When  you wish a house built at present, or  an improyement added, yon can have  it done, no matter how much the  builder may dissapprove of your ideas.  It will not be so simple a matter to  convince a committee that your  notions ought to be carried out. The  unraveling of. red tape would become  a general industry. The Socialist may  tell you that the committee's judgment, is likely to be better than yours.  Granted; but it is to be your own  home, and not theirs. If yon wish to  build a church, or engage a minister,  you will need the consent of a majority vote Socialists tell us that their  army of officers will be tilled with the  love of their fellows; that courtesy,  kindness and unselfishness will mark  all their dealing and smooth over the  little dilTereiieos that may arise, They  will pardon mo for holding o, different  opinion. For men and superintendents and political o*Tl.eials are often  surly, unreasonable and discourteous  now, when it is clearly to thoir interest to please; what, wiunhM'-working  charm is going to transform them into terrestrial angels, when no personal  sinecure is at stake? How are theso  multitudinous offices to be   filled ?   If  to do so." This brings us to the consideration of another question���������tbe  compensation which the collectivist  state will make for the labor performed. I have not heard anyone competent to speak for Socialists say that  the present money system would be  continued. There will be no real  money, no gold or silver; the only  measure of value will be the labor contributed towards the general store or  service. Certificates will be issued to  enable the recipients to purchase goods  at the distributing stores. One of the  greatest of Socialists' difficulties, however, will be to determine the value of  labour anu uow t,o measure iu iov  exchange. They speak of the labour  hour as the unit of value, but differ in  explaining the meaning of that term,  It will have to be counted in one of  two ways���������either by the time employed, or by the value of goods produced. Either explanation is fraught  with insurmountable difficulties,  Qlf the labor hour is to be compensated according to what is produced,  an estimate of value will have to  be  gut upon all work done and a ratio  xed between this and everything that  may be demanded in exchange. This  will not be an easy matter. The best  minds in the world have been trying  to fix a stable ratio between two  simple metals, gold and silver, and  have not met with success. Values  fluctuate, daily. If the necessary  ratios could be established at all, it  would be at the expense of an  enormous force. of office clerks. Un  productive work could not be measured according to this method at all.  If a drought or flood or other unfor-  seen agency made certain labours  unproductive it would not do to let  these labourers starve. Socialists are  fond of saying that they will give the  toiler the fulf product of his labour;  that wiii not "be sufficient in some  cases; in others the product would be  very hard to determine. Will they  give the teacher, for instance, the full  product of her toil? What does it  consist in, and how are they going to  measure it in eqchange for say a bunch  of onions? It will not do to fix ratios  at haphazard; for competition, which  now regulates all such matters, one  might say automatically, will be  eliminated altogether.  If the labour hour is to be measured  by the value of the articles produced,  some kinds of labour will be more remunerative than others. Who is to  get the better positions, the better  farms, the cleaner work? Who is going to do the dirty work, the  dangerous work?- Will committees be  authorized to give them to favorites?  In whatever way it be done, it is sure  to create dissatisfaction, and again the  fundamental idea of Socialism will be  violated���������equality of opportunity and  equal division of unequal earnings.   .  To escape these many difficulties  Socialists tell us of the other method,  which is simplicity itself; they will  measure the labour hour by the time  employed. They Wi 11 not compute: it  by. the time employed,by this-, or that  given person, who might be very lazy'  or very skilful, but by the time  employed by the average person. A new  difficulty ho we ver,confronts them.This  average production will gradually grow  smaller. You haye watched men  working for the government at so  much a day; how often they found it  necessary to stop and lubricate their  hands and to pause again to note the  ^/ixi^i'cSa tjx biic anu.      xuru jjjjcjjjuij   ib  addition of only ,$15. The state has no  money to give every citizen a comfortable living. What the rich spend  upon themselves would be only a drop  in the bucket and they can secure none  of their luxuries without sharing with  the laborer through investment. The  notion that there is a reseryoir of  of wealth somewhere, either in the  possession of the government or the  rich, which might be made to. diffuse  plenty through a smiling land, is a  delusion which nearly all the writings  of the ethical economists tend to  spread and it is probably the most  mischievous delusion whieh  has ever  jnl.ar.

Whatever his income, under {Socialism, the labourer will be obliged to  consume it or give it away, as it cannot be invested or made productive.  If the incomes were large most of the  state's wealth would be dissipated.  Under the present arrangement the  greater portion of the incomes of the  very wealthy is re-invested.  While the labourer may not be getting his just share of the profits in  every industry, each additional investment increases wages none the  less and adds to the general prosperity.  Socialists will probably say that my  visionary state is a myth that no one  tell what the future society will be.  This proves Socialism a destructive  force. Would not a man be'foolish to  tear down his house just for the sake  of change and then trust fco luck and  the good-will of his fellows for the  construction of a better one. The  truth is that Socialists are ashamed  of   their ideas   when  they see them,  worked out in concrete tangible form.  J. A. P. Caley.  Rossland, July 8.

The  change to Socialism will not. eradicate  man's natural dislike to enforced labor.  Individual interest is after all the  indispensable incentive to labor and  economy; that will he wanting in the  Socialistic state. The result must be  bankruptcy. But no, the state can  always wiggle out of this difficulty.  It determines the exchange value of  labor and to escape bankruptcy it  needs but to lower this value, whico  would be equivalent to a cutting of  wages in tho present order of things  Socialists assure us that the community or state will guarantee constant, work to all who apply. There  are people out of work in every city,  even in the best of times. Thon thore  are tho sick, tho insane, the crippled,  tho orphaned, the aged; provision  must be r.o.iAo. for all these, in the  Soicalistie state. That will reduce  still further the laborer's allowance.  It will also bo within the state's proviso to supply amusement which shall  be dono with liberal band ; thore will  be frco excursions wo are told, free  street cars, free medical service, etc.  Children will go to school until their  nineteenth year; parents need not  worry about the cost.; for the state  will furnish not only free tuition, but  free books, free clothes and free meals.  And so thoy continue to paint an attractive picture, heaping on color very  generously. Never trust the man who  promises over-much.  The thoughtful man is sure to ask  himself: "Will the state be able to  carry out this programs' It cannot,  give more than it gets; will it be rich  enough lo nay the extrat'.-iguuL bill of  SoclaliflmP" It Is assumed by Socialists that the wealth of the state is  unlimited; but on what foundation is  tho'iiHHumptlon based? Production will  certainly diminish In the new state  with the chief incentive to work taken  away.

French War Humor
French racing horses' names are
now almost all inspired by the war.
The names of favorite generals, Joffre
and French, for instance, are common ;
battles in which the allies came out
on top find favor, such as La Marne;
Tipperary is also in the field; while
names of French cannon "Seventy-
five." "Hundred and five," Rimailho
are very popular. French love of
irony is soon iu such names as Chir-
foii x\o Papier (scrap of pit per.), Finis,
Teutotiice and La Censure.

I  come of blood whieh has- fought the  British twice and would again for the  right cause. My ideas of how the  British fight; and the part they have  played in this war were formed not  in the company of dukes or in dear  old Lunnun from the gossip of. the  Strand, but at the. British front. I  think that the British are entitled to  fair pi .ay and to bo judged hy what  the;,- have done rather than by the  way  they talk.  Then in two mouths the British  had lost more killed and wounded  than their original force: in six  months, more than the total of their  , standing army. They had lacked  machine guns and guns of heavy calibre; so had the French. The Eug-  lish had not only to train men who  had  never  shouldered  a  rifle,  but to  take of depreciating the British soldier to a German soldier. The highest praise you can hear for the British annj is from Germans.  The English talk of "muddling,"  but ii seems to me that ihey do very  much less muddling than tliey advertise. Tho error so highly criticized  at Loos was made by the German staff  only a few days later. In fact, the  Gin-mans have .been, guilty oc it several times, but they say nothing and  go on.

The article, which  appeai-s in the German papers, has  caused considerable comment:  "To describe the, sensations, the  emotions and the innermost feelings  of the souk oi a soldier in battle is an  unusually interesting but difficult  task. While the battle is raging a  soldier is beset and agitated by.thousands of thoughts that flash like lightning through his brain, but it is only  during the. remarkable calm that  comes after a battle that he is enabled  to analyze theni. As I have participated in thirty-six- engagements and  battles, both on the eastern and western fronts, I have been in a position  lo make many observations and have  made a study of the soul of the soldier.

The face of the late  Earl Kitchener was flashed on the  screen. The orchestra began the  strains of "Nearer, My God, to Thee."  The audience rose, in utter silence,  and stood while the verse was played!  A tribute, such as that, complotely  spontaneous, by people of another  nation is remarkable. It is evidence  that his personality left a mark upon  the world. "       j  It is noticeable, in all the American  tributes paid to Kitchener, by Theodore lioosev-elt, Gen. Leonard Wood  former Ambassador Choate, and many  others, that it was Kitchener's work  in Empire-building that chiefly commanded their admiration.

England was the  mint, the foundry, the. workshop which  must be a bottomless source of supply  ���������while every demand of Jellicoe's had  to be met. She plodded on sturdily,  if not brilliantly, criticizing no one  but herself.  Though   tho   British   had   supposed  that their part,  was to command the  rfoa,   three   million   volunteered     to  cross the Channel or go farther overseas and  fight.      This  is  a different  thing   from   volunteering   to   fight   in  your own country against an invader. (  Mind,  these,   three  million    did   not;  have to be ordered to fight. They went  of  their own    free  will,    carpenters,  farmers,  costermongers,  doctors,  lawyers, millionaires  and  laborers,  with  every able bodied man of Oxford and  Cambridge and other universities and  great public schools offering himself.  History   has   afforded   nothing   finer  than this outpouring,  and never was  there  an  effort  more   depreciated   by  those who- made it.

A strange,  indescribable fear begins to agitate  the soul. The awful- thought pesters  him that he will go to his death and  leave home and loved ones and everything that is dear in a moment of  time.
