Array t?a:  ���������������������������..'���������:��������� V:  Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B. CL FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1916  No. 29  Sending Food to  Prisoners of War  Nest to their willingness and ability  to labor to the end that the organization shall have snfflcient finance to  carry on its work on a scale worthy  of the Creston Valley, the Red Cross  ladies' second long suit seems to be  their equal-ability to keep the finances  working in likely-looking directions.  Althokgh their appeal last week for  socks met with a shamefully small re-  spouse, due to Canyon City's 880 donation the ladies were able to go out and  purchase from Creston some 130 pairs  of hosiery which, along with those  donated, will keep up the Valley's  reputation splendidly. 16 pairs was  the sum total of the woollen footwear  donated, the following being the contributors: Mrs. S. A. Speers 3 pairs,  Mi*s. Mallandaine 2. Mrs. Lyne 1, Mrs.  Jackson 2, Mrs. Ebbutt 3, Mrs. Hayes  2, Mrs. McMurtrie 3.  Another $25 was appropriated with  which to purchase food supplies for  the prisoners of war in Germany.  This is a work that is beiug supervised by tbe London Daily Mail. The  American consuls at points in Germany see to -it that the food gets to  the prisoners and is not commandeered by the Kaiser's troops.  The latest appeal the society has had  is for old kid gloves. These are being  used to make winter waistcoats for  the Canadian soldiers. It is to be hoped there are not over many Frank  Callenders to be thus provided for or  the aupply would never begin to come  up to the demand���������to say nothing of  securing the necessary number of  workers to build the weseotts.  A large, turnout is counted on for  the Patriotic rally in Mercantile Hall  to-night. The occasion is one that  appeals to [Britishers, and the ladies  are providing a line of entertainment  that not only befits the occasion, but  which should also give all attending  excellent value for the half-dollar admission charge.  here from Creston and haye taken a  house at the mill.

The thistle nuisance does not seem  to be abating. Last year it cost $20  to slaughter the crop while this season some $27 was expended"on the  same work.

Mr. Editor, we are with you for  that experimental farm���������and surely  in all the Kootenay has no rivals for  the institution, and don't you tnink  R. J.

Yesterday was provincial election  nomination day a" over B.C., and  from reports to hand there is a full  quota of candidates in every riding,  with one and two to spare in a great  many of them.

Creston fruit shippers have been informed that the Dominion Express  company has announced that the $190  rate from Creston to Calgary, which is  the L.C.L rate, will apply to carlots,  with a minimum of 17.000 pounds.  Similarly wkere the L.C.L rate is less  than the carlot rate to other, prairie  points the L.C.L, rate will apply.  Where the L.C.L. aata is greater than  the carlot rate, the carlot rate will  preyail.���������Nelson News  Popular Young  Couple Married  is.  to  ��������� ��������������� ���������������>5>f'*t*j������  1  HUohenor  Mr. Grady was a Kitchener caller on  Friday.  8H.

The idea of giving the soldiers on  the firing line an opportunity to vote  has been abandoned, though the men  in training in the overseas camps will  have an opportunity of marking their  ballots. This overseas voting will be  done betwten now and September  14th, though it is not expected tbe  returns, from the soidiers balloting  will   be made known for some  time  aff-jot' nollirifr  rlivtr.  Canyon Oily  During his visit here last week  provincial road superintendent Fingland instructed Geo. Leach to construct 200 feet of i*oad between the  Wearmouth and Kifer ranches. He  also instructed that the bull thistle  crop between this point and Port Hill  should be cut.  Owing to the increased hay crop H.  White and W. Carver have taken out  building permits for additions to their  hay sheds.  While coming home from the sawmill on Saturday night ,T. D.

F. E. Stiles of Spokane and I.

Up till Wednesday no one had tendered on the job of  painting the schoolhouse.  A. L. Dougherty, who has had  charge of the school here for the past  two years has resigned and the trustees are looking for a successor. We  understand he is taking a position at  Calgary at tho end of the month.  Clarence Pease and D. Atkinson,  who were yisitors at the Pease home  last week, left for Princeton on Friday, going via Spokane.  Raspberry shipments at the Smith  depot are averaging about 40 crates a  day in spite of the prolonged dry  spell.  Its goodbye to the old K.V. this trip.

Nlany New Teachers  AU the rural schools in the Valley  will start the year with a new set- of  teachers as compared with the 1015  summer opening. Mr. Duncan has  quit at Wynndel. Mr. Dougherty  will not return to Alice Siding, while  at Cahyon City Miss Whitehead is  succeeded -by a Miss' McLean. .Mrs.  Streetor, who started the" season at  Erickson last, year is also missing.  Miss Melva Cartwright is  not return-  Rev. R. E. Pow officiated at an exceptionally pretty house wedding at  high noon on Wednesday, at the home  of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Dow, when  their eldest daughter, Miss Jessie  Kathleen, was united in marriage  with Thomas W. Bundy, in the  presence of a small gathering of the  immediate friends.  The decorative scheme was of white  and pink, and these colors were strikingly in evidence in  all parts of th<->  home.    The ceremony was performed  iu the parlor, the bridal couple standing   in   a   bay    window   which   was  lavishly bankeel with ferns and sweet  peas.    The bride, who was given away  hy her father, was gowned in a travelling suit of twilight  blue silk  poplin  with   hat   to   match,   and   carried   a  shower   boquet    of    carnations    and  sweet peas.    The bridesmaid  was her  sister, Miss Flla Dow, who  was attired in nigger brown taffeta silk with  a  waist of   pale   pink,   and   carried   a  boquet of carnations and ferns.   The  best man was Mr.   Frank Bamford  of  Cranbrook.  Mrs. Dow, in a becoming gown of  black taffeta with shadaw lace, presided over the lunch, which was served buffet style, immediately after the  ceremony, and amidst a liberal baptism of rice showered upon them by a  crowd of friends who were waiting at  the station, the young couple left on  the westbound on a trip, via the  Arrow Lakes to Vancouver ar.d Vic-  joanre ana   K'ni-  3.C.,   where -the  of   the   C.P.B.  ing to Deer- Lodge.  shippers was held at Erickson on  Thursday night last, when the question  of marketing the 1916 tomato crop  was pretty thoroughly discussed.  The final decision arrived at was that  only one grade of tomatoes would be  handled this season, and these will be  known as the Standard Pack.

It will be  necessary to haye a man at both Creston and Erickson to be lesponsible for  the pack, and the union's next worry  will be to get the men foi  the work.  Raspberries still continue to be in  Kood demand and they are reaching  their destination in grand shape in  every case���������so far there litis been complaints on only one crate.

The Miner asserts that Rossland has  the poorest schools of any in the  province.  The output of ore from Rossland  mines for 1015 is valued at over  $8,000,000.

But Sir Penywern suddenly recovered some measure of resolve, and she  heard his stops coming heavily across  the room.  "Put that away, please," said be  hoarsely, feeling that the pretty, frivolous fancy-work gave her an unfair  advantage.  Daphne replaced it at once carefully,  taking pains to tuck the ends of silk  into the basket, and to shut, the lid  tightly. Even this action irritated  him afresh.

Everyone was cared for, the particulars of each, their name, age, domicile,  registered in a book provided for the  purpose; the number of these books  grew and grew and Miss Elliot lias  quite a long row of them, all full, and  each one telling its own tale and bearing faithful witness of her noble work.  One sheet showed the names of a  grandmother, mother and ten children,  whose ages ranged trom 32 years old  down to the baby a few months old,  quite destitute, and each family hail  a separate sheet for its record.  Miss Eliot has many tangible mementoes of her "war work." First and  foremost does she prize "L'Orde do hi  Couronno," bestowed on her by King  Albert, who fully reeogni/.es and appreciates hor good work for his people.  One grateful soldier promised Mi us  Elliot, a trophy, and true to his promise brought her a TJhlan helmet.  Now that time, which changes all  things, has so ordained lhat there is  no longer the pressing need for work  such as Miss Elliot initiated and carried through with extraordinary ability and success, she is baek .".gain in  her beautiful home in England, but  "away over there" she will never be  forgotten,--From the London Geiitle-  woman.  The   Sober   British   Army  Viscount  French bar.  paid  a tribute  to the British soldier which may  well  be   a   source   of   pride   to   the   nation.  The. occasion was the annual meeting  of  the.  Army  Temperance  Association  of whose council he became chairman  in succession to Lord Roberts.    That  organization   owes   much   to   the   precept,  example   and   leadership  of  one  who, though he possessed  virile qualities of an unusual order, will be most  affectionately     remembered     in   after  eueen ! years  as a  warrior  saint.

These morbid euriositv seekers seem to take jrreat pleasure h<-  listening to the uirfc and iiith that  is brought out in the evidence: tor  what purpose no one knows, except  that it furnishes them with food for  gossip. At the first few days of the  recent Wane murder trial two-thirds  of the spectators were women���������spinsters and young girls. The judge  noted this and then issued orders forbidding them in the courtroom. Rarely does one see a dignified, well-bred  woman among court spectators. The  New York courts are all open courts,  but in these sensational cases it seems  a pity that judges do not oftener, ������ir  in the Waite case, find sufficient cause  to exclude morbid women who look upon a murder ease as just one more  play of so many nets cut up ;ntfl  days.���������Pittsburgh  Dispatch.

To wit, extensive acreage lying between Lakes Winnipeg and Manitoba,  a minor portion of which territory has  alone been taken up. Certain districts  of Riding Mountains in north-western  Manitoba afford opportunity; to the  northward of Lake Winnipeg are  stretches of splendid areas, which it  is understood will bo open for entry  at completion of the railro������*id to Hudson Bay. And in Manitoba proper,  homesteads are likewise obtainable,  but comprise lands somewhat rugged  in character. Nevertheless, this ^acreage is being secured by the immigrant  from Slavonic Europe, who, with the  perseverance indigenous to this class  of settler, is creating farmsteads from  an indifferent material.  Recent annexation of the immense  district of Keewatin cannot be for  several decades a feature of interest  from the standpoint of the homesteader. For the main part, Keewatin  consists of tamarac growth with connecting waterways."  The Manitoban, always optimistic  of bis country's future, is looking forward^ to the termination of the present European war as the index finger  of an unprecedented influx of immigration. For such auspicious happening, land for homesteading purposes  is available in various provincial districts, despite any report to the contrary.���������J. D. A.. Evans in Farmer's  Magazine.  Kisssian Equipment  New Shell Explains   Russians Success  on the Eastern Front .  A new kind of shell, said by some  correspondents to be a Japanese invention, while others assert it is the  product of Russian scientists, is generally given the chief credit for the  success of the new Russian offensive  in despatches from Petrograd. Incredible quantities of this new weapon  are being used by General Brussiloff,  and its effect is said to surpass everything witnessed in the war thus far.  "Of course, nothing can be said  about the nature of this shell," says  the Morning Post's correspondent at  Petrograd, who asserts it is the product of the co-operative research of the  Russian universities.  "In fighting, hitherto, the capture  of positions have been gradual processes, but on the present occasion  it is rapid beyond belief, the destruction and capture of men coming like  a lightning stroke, leaving the staff  officers, whose station is from five to  fifteen, miles behind the firing line,  with no hopes of repairing the initial  mischief, and they simply fled. The  astounding quantity of booty of every  kind is' likewise evidence of this."

Pinkham's Vegetable  Compound  When   the   Blood   Becomes   Poor  Disease Speedily Follows  Every woman's health is peculiarly  dependent upon the condition of her  blood.   How many women suffer with  headache, pain in the back, poor appetite, weak digestion, a constant feeling  of weariness, palpitation' of the heart,  shortness   of  breath,   pallor   and nervousness.      Of course all these symptoms may not be present���������the  more  there are the worse the condition  of  the blood, and the more necessary that  you should begin to enrich it without  delay.    Vr.

Every dose helps to make new, rich,  red blood which goes to every part of  the body and brings new health and  strength  to weak, despondent people.  Dr. Williams Pink Pills are valuable  to all women, but they are particularly,  useful to girls of school age who become pale, languid and nervous.

The Irish Problem  Irishmen  of all parties  and  creeds  have been fighting the common enemy  together with the Englishmen, Scotsmen, Welshmen, Canadians,  Australians, New Zealanders, and South Africans; and how can we be so bankrupt in statesmanship as not to secure  for the   future    settlement    enabling  Irishmen  to live  in  harmony  within  their  Island,   and   al  the  same   time  establishing Irish national  sentiment  as a reconciled and satisfied aspiration  making for the  strength  and  not.  the  weakness  of the  Empire?    Lastly,  it  should be evident to every Irishman,  as to every Briton, that an early solution of this problem would make a  real  addition to  the  strength  of  the  Empire in its present hour of strain.  Everybody who wants to win the war  must  recognize,  that,   whoever  helps  on an Irish settlement helps  to win  the war, and whoever hinders it hinders winning the war.

AUG.   4  Although the election campaign  only  opened officially  yesterday a  considerable  noise  like  betting is  already heard about  town,   and, if  dame rumor  speaks  correctly, the  fun   in   this  line   has  not   hardly  started yet, for we  have heard on  several occasions of  a $2,000  fund ���������  for this purpose that  one side  has j  already   raised,    while   the   other  fellows were out on the hunt for an j  equal amount   with whieh   to meet  any emergency.  Personally we are doing nothing  iu th*:* betting line for the good and  sufficient reason   that cash   capital1  is limited: were there a   surplus of!  it we would b*3 inclined to pay some'  of our debts  with   it.

Still, this little preachment is!  not for the purpose oi discouraging  betting, an evil though it is. but to  suggest that the makers of bets  agree that the winner shall pay,  in part or in full, any unearned gain  of this sort to the Patriotic* Fund  or the Red Cross.  There should be no serious objection to the suggestion. Certainly the winner is nothing out of  I>ocket by turning over his winnings aud as for the loser, he won't  worry; his money is gone anyway.  As a matter of fact such a system  might encourage the laying of  odds, and surely in such a cause no  harm can come of doing evil that  good may result.  Of course an official stakeholder  will be necessary. But this feature  presents no difficulty, for it is  reasonably certain that under these  circumstances Mr. Henry Lyne,  president of the local patriotic  fund, will officiate in cases where  that organization is to be gainer,  while an equally-stanch Red Cross  booster like Jas.

The Watte retirement ib also  noteworthy from the angle that,  politically considered, it eclipses  the Damon and Pythias incident.  With these gentlemen it was a  matter of sacrificing for a friend,  while with Mr. Watts its a matter  of passing into political obiiyion  for the sake of an enemy. In many  cases such self-effacement would  almost merit a senatorship, though  hardly for Albert Edward, we fear.  While  the   hibernation   of   i-*ir.  Watts will enable  the   Cranbrook  Conservatives to put on a seemingly united front The  Review  cannot help thinking that   Dr.   King's  election   is   the one best bet in  the  whole   election   area.    And   there  are others that take this same view.  One   of   the     previously-foremost  Conservative workers in Cranbrook  has   money    to    wager   with   any  Cavenito  tliat Mr. Cavov������   will not  win.     And this isn't a case   of sour  grapes, either.    The gentleman   in  question,    we   are    told,     has    on  occasions   stated    his  aversion   to  having anything   to do   with   the  juice of the grape  -or anything of  the sort -i"n its fermented state,   of  course.

By  the time  we got  through   his    meanderings,    we   are  brought to   view the whole lingo as  nothing more or less than the product  of a benighted and prejudiced mind.  Such froth and fiction may catch  the  unwary, and ignorant, of the squaw-  fish and sucker class,   but not so  the  reader   of average intelligence,   who  has given the subject any study at aii.  Like unto others  of a  "particular religious eult" it is very evident he  is  more concerned in villifyitig Socialism  than he is in seeking the truth; judged from the maladroit, spirit ami matter of his talk; we view him as belonging to the cheap  order of critics and  prejudiced purveyors of mis-represent-  ation-   Anent his remarks as to religion,      marriage,      free-love,     etc.,  we need not dwell  other than to say  that to a   mind such  as he discloses,  evil be t.o him who evil thinks,and by  the way, speaking of free love, what  ha ye wo pot in tho  world today ?   As  to  religion  that concerns tlio future  and the unknown, as to Socialism that  concerns   the   present life, here   and  now, and mothinlcs  that any religion  that stands an obstacle in the way of  social evolution is doomed and that of  a certainty.    Since we come to   ieavn  from Kail Marx and  his exposition of  tho materialistic conception of history  that   "Tho mode   of   production   in  material  life determines the general  character of the social, political   and  spiritual processes of life."   Mr. Cayley ignores this irrefutable fact whon  ho  uses   present   day    reasoning  of  things and actions as applicable   to a  future   oomnionwoalth.     Thoro   is   u  world of difforonco as between   tho  words   competitive and cooperative.  Today under a competitive, system wo  observe tho capitalist class extracting  profits from the workers the world  over,  thus wo find  two dnnnes  with  intvi-i'Kts diametrically opposed to each  other,  and   all   Lhut  ontalli).    On the  other hand a co-operative system is a  state of cooperative producers, devoid  of classes  with  fixed and conflicting  interests.    In othor words a .Socialist  society is one based  on the system of  public or collective ownemlilp  of  the  miitviial   instruments  of  production,  dcuini-riitic      lulininsl ration     ot     the  ludui'ti-lesi, nnd cooperative labor; and  the guiding principle of Ninth  society  nniht   bo the   recognition  of the right  j>f j.vi.,t,.,,r-i. mid ouinymont, inherent  in every human being. Class distinctions will be absent; and in a society,  in which the material interest of all  citizens are identical the motives for  all crimes against property and for  many crimes against the person are  removed.  This is the Socialism we. believe in  as the logical, the natural, and  necessai*y outcome of industrial  evolution.  The fact that a man becomes convinced of the truth of Socialism does  not make him either a saint or a sinner, and to pick out an individual sinner and condemn the whole movement because of the sins of one is eyi-  dence of a narrow and prejudiced  mind. Because a priest committed  murder or adultery would you condemn the wholo christian religion ?  At that, Mr. Caley cannot accuse  Helen Marx of believing in promiscuous sex relationship, for her free-love  marriage was so binding to her that  when Dr. Aneling proved unfaithful  she committed suicide. On the other  hand the fact that: Dr. Aneling was  legally married to his first wife did  not make him faithful.  Mr. Caley declares that "Economic  determinism" or the "Materialistic  conception" of history" is the first  principle of Socialism, and that a man  cannot accept: this belief unless he.is  an atheist. In writing to a student  in 18110 Engels saiel, "Marx and I arc  partly responsible for the fact that the  younger men have sometimes laid  moro stress on the economic side than  it deserves. In meeting the attacks of  our opponents it was necessary for us  to emphasize its dominant principle  donied by them; and we did not  always havo tho timo, placo or opportunity to lot tho other factors, which  were concerned in the mutual action  and reaction, got their deserts."  Again he said, "Hut when anyone  distorts this ho as to road that tho economic factor is the solo element, ho  converts tho statement into a meaningless, abstract, absurd phrase. Tho  economic condition is tho biiHls, but  tho various elements in the superstructure���������tho political forms of tho  class contents, nnd tholr results, tho  constitution���������the legal forms and also  all the reflexes of thoso actual contests in tho brains of tho participants,  t.ho political, legal, philosophical tho-  orios, the religious views; nil thoso  exert an influence on tho development of tho historical struggles, and  in many instances determine thoir  form."

Whew ! Got.t  save us  from  all  such   prevarication.  Ye defenders of this present system  of society, and its fruits, as evident in  Europe   today,   upon    whom   is   the  the   blame    and   the   -shame?    As   a  movement   Socialism  stands unalterably opposed to war, ami  that of a  truth, knowing nothing of shame,   in  its advocacy   of human  brotherhood,  social betterment aud uplift of human  society.    We   confess we. are  not as  strong on the "imaginary"  as we arc  in seeking to establish the  "reality"  and we have enough faith in   common  humanity animated  by the spirit of  social-democracy  to believe that,   in  the evolution of human society from  autocratic class rule or regime, to that  of   true   democracy   established   and  operative     through   ,a    Co-operative  Commonwealth,    that   Mr.    Cayley's  imaginary   commonwealth comes   a-  bout as near duplicating the evolutionary reality as a wooden Indian does a  real live   man.   As a finishing touch  to his imaginary picture,  and on  a  par with  his line   of thought,  doubtless he would havo us belioye also that  with tho Socialist system operative we  would find  ourselves digging lemons  with   a,   fork,   and picking   potatoes  from t ho trees. , ���������>.  Further ho says "I cannot see that  Socialism will do away with the incentive to steal, when it is to bo usher  ed in with wholesale theft, and  robbery. Thoy would expropriate  without compensation all active capital To confiscate all lucrative property is declared by every Socialist,  platform nn nbsohtto necessity." We  brand all such distorted ideas as falsi*  and absolutely untrue to facts. .Will  Mr. Cayloy kindly furnish tho proof,  and oblige as wltli a. copy of tho platform and principles of that Socialist  party wherein appear thowords "confiscation'' iindexpropriation. Socialism  or tho Socialist movement is to be  judged by its party platform, and not  by what any ono individual exponent  may state as Socialism, or his views  or rendering of it. Tako thon the  platform of the Socialist party of  Canada and upon this point wo llnd it  reads as follows *. Tho transformation  as rapidly as po.ssiblo of capitalist  property in tho means of wealth production (natural resources, fact orios,  mills, railroads, etc.) into the collective  property. . . ." and no such words  as "confiscation" or "expropriation"  appear therein.

While on the other hand  when   slavery  was abolished in  the  colonies of England an indemnity was  paid to the slave owners; thnswe come  to say that expediency may decide as  to the future transformation of capitalist   property   into    the.   common   or  collective property of the people as a  whole.    Further, anent this question  of   property    we take   the following  excerpt   from   the   last   issue  of the  American  Socialist, as appearing   in  draft of party platform.    "So long as  the few own and control the economic  'ife of the nation   the  many  must be  enslaved,   poverty must coexist with  riotous luxury, and civil strife prevail.  The Socialist party  would end these  conditions by reorganizing the life of  the nation upon the basisof Socialism.  Socialism  would  not abolish private  property, but greatly extend it.    We  believe that every human being should  which the capitalist get as his share  of what the  worker  produces is all  clear   profit.    Some is used for  raw  material, etc., but by far the 'larger  portion of it is worse than   wasted because under this competitsve system  it must pass through so many needleless hands in the form of rent,interest  and profit).    Be it observed however  that  each   man,   woman   and   child  produced   in   round   numbers   $3,500  through the sweat of their face, and  should haye received this amount as  their just reward; but according to  Census Bulletin No. 150 they only received  in wages an average of $437  dollars.

Not  more than 2,500 acres will be leased to  one applicant.  Application foi a lease must be made  by tho applicant in person to the Agent  or Sub-Agent of tho district in whioh  tho rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land must  bo described by sections, or legal subdivisions oi sections, and in unsnrvey-  iwi territory tho tract applied for shall  be staked out by the applicant himself,  ESaeh application must be accompanied by a foe of $5 which will be refunded if the rights applied for are not  avallablo, but not otherwise. A royalty  shall bu paid on the merchantable output of tho mine at tho rato of five cents  por ton.  The person operating the mine shall  furnish tho Agent with sworn returns  accounting for tho full quantity of  merchantable coal mined and pay the  royalty thereon. If tho coal mining  rights are not being out-ruled, tnich  returns should he furnished at least  once a year.  Tho lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may he necessary for the  g of the mine at the rato of jJtlO  working  an acre.

Socialism admits the private- ownership and individual direction  of all things, tools,  economic   processes    and    functions  which are individualistic in character  and requires the collective ownership  and democratic control and direction  of those which are social and collect!v-  istic in character."  Because a  wrong., or robber system}  obtains today is no i*eason or argument why it should continue, neither  will it last very long once the majority  of the people get sufficiently wise and  educated   to, know   what constitutes  their true interests, natural rights and  liberties     Herbert Spencer we think  it is who puts  the query "How long  must a wrong obtain or exist before  it comes to be recognized and defended  as a Bight?���������and so we come to view  all those of today who "wise in their  own conceit" uphold  and defend the  present system as being either right,  just, or human, as troglodites who had  better hike  back  to their caves and  don natures hairy garb.  Further, Mr. Cayley says, "It is not  true that labor produces $10 daily and  gets only two and it is estimated that  capital gets only 6% while labor gets  approximately    04%."   That's    going  some.    Well, Mr. Cayley may know a  whole lot, butlisten to this, as evidence  as  to   the falsity   of   his   argument,  which comes first to hand.    At the St.  Louis  World's Fair were  to be seen  one   hundred   people   making twelye  hundred   pairs of   $3,50 shoes every  eight    hours.     The    superintendent  gave it that three pairs out of each  twelve would more than pay for the  raw material,  interest, on  money- invested,   wear of   machinery,   boxing,  dray ing.   foreman's    wages   and   all  other   expenses.    That, granted  each  workman would then have nine pairs,  not, as his share for  one day's work.  But suppose we take out still another  pair for maintaining schools, hospitals,  old age pensions, etc., then eacn workman would stili havo eight pairs left  for himself as a result of eight hours'  work.   In other words, he would have  one   pair  of   shoes   for   each   hours'  work.   A large number of those workers wero boys and girls who received  aa low as 75 ceutn per day, while the  highest salary was $3 25 por day, not  enough to buy back one-twelfth   of  what each person created daily.   To  be just, each shoe worker should have  been paid eight times $3.50 or a total  of $28.00 per   day.   We   haye   here  shown  that the  shoe   workers were  irobhi.'.d   o  created  robbery in all industries, uncording to  I lie U.S. census reports:   In tho year  1800,1.250,783 men, women and children,   working in 5155,111 factories, produced goods valued at- $M,055,1.01 ,-liH������  dollars retail   price.

Whom to Trust  u.   ;-*.  raper     Kecognizcs tne  That Can be Trusted  reauon  Wheat Prospects  It is too bad that just when it is  most needed the winter wheat crop  of the United States will show a loss  of at least 180.000,000 bushels. On top  of that, the exceptionally wet weather  in Canada is bound to hurt the crop  here. Misfortunes, it would seem,  never come singly.  "Perfidious Albion" has long been  ihe exclamation on the tip of the  tongue in continental Europe when  Great Britain was mentioned. Perfidy in tins war, however, has not  been the characteristic of British methods. Great Britain has not invaded  'helpless neutral States which she  has sworn to protect. Great Britain  has not broken her pledges to maintain certain definite standards of  humanity in naval warfare. Great  Britain has not sent spies and bomb-  plotters to destroy -America and  poison Americanism. "Perfidious"'  fits another nation better than Albion. It may be important for us to  know in the next few months which  European nation we can trust. Many  Americans say that all alike are unworthy of our confidence. However,  this deliberately ignores the facts.  Three thousand miles of unfortified  American border stand as a silent  witness for the good faith of one  European country. We have trusted  her ior over one hundred years. We  are trusting her this very minute--  trusting; l)er to respect our rights aud  The United Church  Union Should  Result in Much Wssts  of    Effort    and    Funds    Being Avoided  Now that the General Assembly ot  the Presbyterian Church has voted  in favor of Church Union bv a majority of 4 to 1, the last obstacle to  the consummation of that ideal  would appear to have been removed.  The other two bodies who are to conie  into the union are the Congregation-  alists and the Methodists. The Baptists which have a close communion,  could not see their way to join hancia  with the others, and* the Anglican,!  have held aloof for the principal reason, apparently, that they wish to ro-  tain the episcopacy.  The three bodies which will now  unite consist, according to the latent  census figures, of 28,442 Congregatioa-  alists, 910,886 Methodists, and 84;!.-  442 Presbyterians, making a total of  1.787,621, as compared with C81.404  Anglicans, 318,005 Baptists and LV22n.-  600 Roman Catholics.

The fact of the matter is that the  lorces behind Germany's persistent effort to promote discussion on the  subject are far too potent to be overcome by the clamor of ultra-patriots  in the German parliament.  The German  press   is  not   its  own  all, Holland was to become liie centre  ���������if it has not already become so���������ol  a new movement for sowing discord  between Great Britain and the United  States.

Hitherto, however, Germany has reckoned upon the adverseness of British  diplomacy to utilize the press for  counter-attacking her diplomacy. But  the fact Sir Edward Grey has just  given official cognizance to a press  interview, and that Arthur Balfour  used the same medium to set forth  the British view on the blockade, may  be accepted as* signs that Great Britain  will   not   be   without   a   reply   to  nates  imperial chancellor, and he is the  ���������servant very largely of the bank?rs  0$ Berlin, the Rothschilds of Vienna,  Herr Ballin, and the Burgomeisters  of Hamburg and Bremen.  These all represent interests that  have made their will a higher law in  the councils of state.  At their representation three months  ago it was decided that a powerful  ���������and special organization should be  created to co-operate with the diplomatic efforts of the imperial chancellor to bring about a peace favorable  to the present standing of German  arms.

However,  we  struggled on as best we could, helping each  other,   ,and   after   what   eeemed   an  eternity   broke,   through    with    many  cuts   and   scratches,  but  lost  nothing  except   a   few   pieces    of   coats    and  breeches.

On reaching Hull the naval officer  at the base asked Doe. what he  would like as a reward for his service, and he replied.

The story runs that Doe  was brought before the old Poor Law  Guardians and "speechified" over.  Doe, however, once more showed his  devotion to the great cause by inducing a bunch of lads to volunteer  for what he calls the "best- kind of  ���������scavenger work out of London,"  mine-sweening on the   North Seal  There nave been innumerable inquiries at Ottawa as to the status of  homesteaders who have enlisted  and) for active service. As there have been  many rulings by the department and  men from all parts of the' Dominion  are interested in these various rulings  a summary is of interest.  The Dominion Lands Act as it stands  makes certain provision for military  service. Section 22 of the act provides that a Canadian volunteer hold  ing a homestead may count his active  military service as performance of  residence. Section 23 of the act *oro-  vides that any such volunteer who is  disabled by wounds or illness, while  on active service, may receive patent  forthwith.  To supplement these provisions ord-  ers-in-council were passed in May and  September of 19] 5 providing that when  an entrant had been killed on active  service patent might be issued in his  name without calliim unon the heirs to  same vear, instructions were given Jo*  the present to extend the same privileges to Hollanders and Swiss called  home on active service. If by any  chance they should throw in their lot  with the Central powers, the privileges would, of course, be cancelled  Guards enlisting for service in detention camps* in Canada are not regarded as entitled to the benefits of  the various orders unless they have  enlisted unconditionally for active service anywhere after securing their  respective entries. Protection may be  granted where the persons serving es  guard had entered for land or had  established a right in respect thereto  under the Dominion Land Act prior  to his enlistment. Bridge guards arc  treated   in  the   same   way.  Until recently protection could not  be granted to an unprotected proxy  entry, and such entry had to be cancelled at the end of six months from  the date thereof as called foT by the  perform any further settlement duties regulations.

Verdun must be  Rubdued if it should cost five hundred  thousand men. And so on ad infinitum and ad nauseum.  Herr Ballin is credited with having  informed the chancellor that it was  useless to dream any longer of an  eastern conquest. They must dispel  that vision and face an ultimate disintegration of Turkey.  As the outcome of these and other  conferences it was decided to concentrate upon a two-fold plan of campaign  for peace. The methods may be sum-  arized as follows: Diplomatically,  Germany was to aim at detaching  Italy from the allies. She was to offer  terms to Belgium, including an indemnity aniMhe destruction of forts  in proximity to her border as an evidence of her good faith.  Her trump curd, however, was to  Fettle the. submarine controversy with  the United States, and then, assuming that the Crown Prince had put  nn end to the struggle on the Meuse to  ���������solicit President Wilson to submit tentative peace terms 1o Great Britain  nnd France in particular, in the hope  that they would be refused, mid thcrc-  liy Pliable Germany to regain her prestige nmony; the nations she hnd unfortunately estranged by her nygres-  hiveni'SS.

The Jutland Naval Fight  Beatty Was  Hunting Auxiliary Cruisers When  he  Found the German Fleet  A remarkable version of the Jutland naval battle was told recently by  the officers of the Cunarder Andania,  which recently arrived in New York,  from London.  According to their story the battle  was purely accidental. It occurred  while the battle cruiser squadron of  Admiral Sir David Beatty was hunting for six auxiliary cruisers which  the British Admiralty Intelligence Department had learned were making a  dash for the Atlantic by way of Iceland.  During this search Beatty's squadron encountered the German battle-  cruiser squadron, and engaged it. The  battle then took place on the course  that had previously been reported, the  search for the auxiliary cruisers being abandoned.  The Andania's officers declared that  after Beatty had wirelessed for Admiral Jeliicoe he sent word to the Admiralty that, he was heavily engaged  and had abandoned search for the  auxiliary squadron.  The Admiralty then sent out an armored cruiser squadron of the si^ond  line, of defence, whieh discovered the  auxiliaries, and after a sharp fight  succeeded in sinking them.

Shortly  after    the  outbreak  of   war  there arose the. question of extending  the   same   privileges   to    British   and  foreign  reservists.    In May,  1915,  an  order was passed authorizing this action.    The  wording of  this  order being somewhat ambiguous and a question of its interpretation having been  raised an amending order was passed  in September of the same year.    This  authorized not- only that all privileges  conferred to Canadian soldiers should  be-extended to all reservists fighting  on the side of Great Britain and the  Allies of  Great  Britain,  but that   patent micht be issued to disabled soldiers without calling for the performance of any further duties and without  requiring   an   application   for   patent,  and   also   providing   for   the   issue   of  patent in the name of a deceased alien  entrant without requiring any further  duties or the making of a formal application   for   patent   or   the  filing of  letters of administration.    These orders were extended so as  to grant the  same concessions to the naval service  as to the military service.  The question has arisen of a man  taking out, a homestead entry the day  he enlisted or after he, had enlisted.  In the case of a' certain British reservist who secured a homestead entry  on the same clay he was called to  the colors he-has been given the s.vtne  privileges as men who had homesteads  when they enlisted. However. Hon.  Dr. Roche, minister of ths interior.  has ruled thut, persons who secured  entrv after enlistment or after the  date* of their recall to the colors will  only be granted protection during the  term of their military service and will  not further participate in the. benefits  of the order-in-council. Under a ruling  of May t'.t. 1010. where the entry is  made arter enlistment and the homesteader is" killed in action the. legal  will   be.   expected   to  reasons, the land was to be reserved  from settlement during the continuance of the war. In the case of the  unprotected proxy entries made after  enlistment, no concessions were shown  and at the end of the six months from  the date of entry the same was cancelled and the land made available  for settlement.  Recent orders havo amended these  regulations. Instructions have been  issued that all existing proxy entries  made by volunteers are to fre protected  from cancellation provided the tact  of active military service is made  known to the agent in time to prevent cancellation under the ordinary  proxy  regulations.
