The ship broke in two and sank immediately with her commander and  many of the crew.  The Karlsruhe was accompanie.<l_,by  the steamers Indriani and Rio Negro as colliers, which rescued many  of the crew. The Indriani reached  Norway and the Rio Negro arrived in  a German harbor later.  This solves one of the most puzzling mysteries of the sea brought  about by the war. It is the first  definite news of the cruiser's destruction.- Late last year dispatches from  German sources said wreckage from  the Karlsruhe had been washed  ashore on the Scandinavian coast.  $1,000.00 Reward Forfeited  if Remedy Fails  *'fMist Says J|e CouMa'i  Run The Farm Without  May we send you a copy  of our new book,  "Desserts and Caridies"?  ���������practical���������helpful���������and free.

Subscription: $2 a year in advance ;  $2.50 to united States, points.  C. F. Hatss, Owner and Editor.  ORESTON,  B.C., FRIDAY, NO^ . 3  Two Weeks to Wmlt  While we really do not care to  blow about the fact, still we cannot refrain from noting���������with  satisfaction���������that the only really  independent daily in the province,  the Vancouver World, agrees with  the view we expressed last week,  that it will be the middle of the  month before Premier Bowser and  cabinet turn in their resignations  to Lieut.-Governor Barnard at  Victoria.  According to the regulations  made and provided the governor  cannot very well ask the premier  to resign until he is officially  advised by tne provincial secretary  of the precise result of the voting.  This little detail cannot be complied  with until the overseas returns are  received,   and   as  the count  of the  chosen, and like the laws of the  Medes and Persians his mind  altereth not.  " However, any and all of the  three dozen Liberals elected are at  liberty to figure themselves in the  running for the half-dozen vacancies, as the new premier assures  that he has not told the prospective  cabinet minister that their calling  and elevation is sure, nor will he  do so until after the governor has  entrusted him with the task of  commanding the ship of state.  John   Keen   returned   from   his  trip to   the coast  on Tuesday, as  did also  Dr.   King  of   Cranbrook  but, of course, could say nothing as  to their prospects  of   cabinet   preferment.    Possibly the   Cranbrook  member's   prospects are  the   best  owing to seniority   of  service, but  at that Mr. Keen's chances are also  splendid.    Of all the   interior  men  he  is  admitted   to   he   the logical  choice for the mil iss   portfolio, and  it is felt Mr. Brewster will see to it  that the administration   of mining  affaiis will   go to  an   authority ou  metal   mining     matters    from   a  metalliferous mining district.  November is here, and although the cooler, wet weather  has not arrived it is assuredly on the way. Against its  coming we announce a full stock in seasonable goods like  AN  C||fp  flOl  Tl  %$    f is  icse   are   all  attractively-priced and will  give general satisfaction  xtxau Oi   i>ne  soldiers  vote across the j  water  was only completed yester- j  day. at least two weeks must elapse  Ko������<^������^j^     +��������� fr% j^.     .#-��������� ^-v.rv������ ������. *"**������ ���������-*%*> ^.-^ ***,*- -������-x        ������*i/\rtiN������ \-x 1 **���������  IJ^/lUl -*C    ViiJC*    U1A L* UJVT1* VO       V-������������.H       iJi.*.o&JLC������i^y  arrive.  Seeing, too, that the cabinet are j  simply looking   after routine mat- j  ters, and   are  filling   no   positions,  it is  hardly likely   the man higher j  up   will  force   the   hand   of an old j  friends like   Mr.   Bowser   iratii the  latter   shows   a   tendency   to   ton  long postpone his exit.  Another   point   that    tends   to  confirm and   strengthen   the belief  that   Mr.    Bowser  will   stay    the  limit is  that  in   the   Sloean   and  Esquimalt       constituencies,        for  instance, the candidates  at present  in the lead are in front by a matter  of  one or two   votes  respectively.  In case  of a recount and a casting  vote  being  necessary   to   break  a  tie such casting vote   will be made  by the provincial secretary, we are  told.  Were the new government in  power the provincial secretary  would be of Liberal persuasion and,  naturally, would pronounce in favor  of the Liberal candidate. If Mr.  Bowser is stiil on the job the  casting vote would be in favor of  the Tory nominee.  Thus it will be seen that from  the standpoint of practical politics  it will be good business for the  present government to remain in  harness���������and nobody as yet has  ever acoused Mr. Bowser of being  impractical in things political.  mmBm-.Smm~m    ff���������������#5-0^'  S?g$gB<SBB3 *TmtSSBr*mSa  While the year has been none  too prosperous, and it is stiil necessary for most of us to keep close  tab on every two-bits or more that  comes our way, at the same time  neither on the score of thrift, or  not much liking for entertain ments,  nor any other* excuse whatsoever,  should anyone miss the Belgian  Relief concert on the 15th  Possibly Belgian Children's Relief would be the more correct  way to speak of the concert, as the.  affair is being given by the Creston  school   children,    and   the   entire  ZX      o *���������-* 1 a trt <r\ t r I  J. i.   ojyr*cnvu*a  General  111 IV  ^1  fhpep  in  X * *  11   tin  Vi A *������w  sizes, and at prices that are ri  iirht  G.

To some this will read like  ancient, history, but it isn't. It  appears that when the coming  premier was chosen in 191.3 to head  the Liberal party the appointment  wiiu only a temporary one, and wan  subject to ratification by tho  Liberals-elect at the iiext election  after the 1913 gathering.

Every  little bit helps materially in this  case, as it is estimated that a matter  of $2.50 will feed a Belgian family  in fair shape for almost a month.  This is virtually Creston's first  effort to succor the unfortunate  Belginns, and this fact along with  the knowledge that the relief is for  those who were helpless to avert,  their present plight, and still more  ���������absolutely���������helpless to better  conditions, to say nothing of being  the foundation upon which heroic  Belgium must rebuild her shattered  but glorious future, should ensure  a large and generous^ response to  this appeal for help  For thoso who cannot attend at  Croston the people at Husoroft's  school are having a supper and  dance on the 8th in the same good  cause.

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE, OTTAWA,  OCTOBER  7th,   1916. ���������  The Hosoil tUforli  An Erickson reador writes us  that tho policy enunciated by  Tue Review last week on the  patronage question may bo alright  when it comes to filling positions  like game warden'*, for ii'.r.tr.ncc*-,  but that when it comes to alloting  roadwork the theory of "all things  being equal give the Grits the best  of it" will not he acceptable. ,  Our friend points out that in the  I Hint too much of that way oi' doing  htw'in-'iiK wan tolerated, and watt  undoubtedly one of the factors thai  h������>l)M*<ii John Keen run mo well at  this end of the riding.  What our correspondent would  like to see is & system inaugaurated  whereby early in the season it  could be ascertained where and  when roadwork is to be done in the  Valley, along with the name of the  foreman who will be in charge of  the work, so that team owners  and individual day laborers could  file applications for a job, and thus  give the foreman a chance to divvy  the work upas equally as possible,  without regard to politioal affiliations or  personal considerations of  l������y    SOl V pi OV 1<.JCU ������J K Jl,!

Another detail that has givon  rise to much complaint was the  practice of bringing crews in from  othor sections to do what little  improvements thero wore in, say,  the Deer Lodge and Corn Crook  districts. Naturally all fool tliat  the peoplo living nearest the work  should have first call on any labor  going on in their home district,  and rightly so.  Of course if tho Browoter government proposes to do this work by  contract, whieh we doubt, nil T.heHO  complaints of politioal favoritos  getting     the     preference     should  disappear. But if it is intended  to continue the old order of things  some system akin to that suggested  from Erickson should be considered.  It is the people's money that is  being expended and all the peoplo  should have a chance to share in  its disbursement if they so desire,  and can deliver the goods, regard-  loss of how they voted last September or propose to voto five years  hence.

Or  is it fear of becoming the target of  ridicule and hatred from all the forces  that this eyil spirit inspires, as it  uui-ges thi-ougu hypl  human units doing the bidding  this mystic ruler of civilization ?  . Although I cannot boast of any  college education, still I have had free  access most of my life to the labratory  of this supreme universal law of  creation���������the forces of nature as they  operate in fields and forests���������in its  unceasing toil of creation, and unless  we take note and counsel from these  forces all our efforts in life will  culminate in failure.  Conscious of the ridicule to which I  expose myself by revealing to the  public what I believe in the only way  by which permanent peace amongst  nations, and fraternal brotherhood  amongst men can be attained, I will  proceed to give a brief sketch of my  convictions.   '  As we are all aware a nation's  medium of exchange performs the  same functions in the domestic and  foreign life of nations as the blood in  tho human body. This medium of  oxchango amongst civilized nations  must circulate to give health and  growth to the nations; just as the  blood in tho human body needs unrestricted circulation to keep il iu  health and growth. Interfere with  the circulation of your, blood, and  interfere with tho circulation of a  nation'o medium of exchange and you  have tho name symptoms in both.  Nature has ordained that our blood,  to Icccp  und  create Hfc,   muat pafla  i.ilj'(K^tJ   .'4.

It shouSd be plain to all not iiader  this evil hypnotic influence that when  a nation hands oyer the life-bloocl of  civilisation���������its circulating medium  fb exchange. -(money)���������to be controlled and operated byand for individual  citizens, it then delegates and wastes  this secret power (the life-giving blood  of the Tiatioja) into the hands of a few  individuals, and thereby makes the  nation subject to these few individuals  and not as it should be, the individuals,  subject to the nation.  This cardinal error in the foundation  of civilized organization, constitutes  the cornerstone of hell on earth; proceed to take this cornerstone away  and we will find that hell oil earth  will gradually begin to crumble. In  this operation let us look well lhat  human life.does not get crushed.    ,  The point at issue in counselling for  pei manent peace amongst nations is,  first of all, that each nation must agree  to abolish the metallic standard for  its. csrcu'atin������r   medium of exchange  (money), and substitute in its place  the nation's productive ��������� resources upon  which toTssne its medium of exchange,  and this to   be issued, handled and  controlled exclusively by the respective  nations   at   cost of   operation   only.  International     exchange     must    be  liquidated by  commodities only.    A  nation's I.O.U. tb another nation must  hold   good  till the commodities  are  produced,   or   the   I.O.U,   liquidated  through    the   international   clearing  house of the nations.    And here let  nie caution; we must apply thesame  principles   and .law amongst nations  as that which  we intend  to practice  with our domestic medium of exchange*,  namely,   that    no   interest   must   be?  charged on  a  nation's I.O.U. against  any other nation���������only a per centage  cost  for   the    maintenance    of   the  international    exchange    office.   We  must   aim   to establish    brotherhood  amongst nations just, as we aim  to  establish a new  brotherhood amongst  the subjects of a nation.    A nation  Which prospers, and has a surplus to  offer to less-prosperous nations should  not  impose  a   tine  (in   the  form of  interest) un a less prosperous-nation  because it is - hot   able to  produce   that   particular  we may be willing to take in exchange  for an  I.O.U.   The surplus of a prosperous nation  might just as well be  transferred for storage to the stomachs  of the subjects in the less prosperous  nations, where it will create strength  and   ability  to  producs  com modi ties  for liquidation  of   the I.O.U., as to  keep it stored in the nation's warehouses   or magazines till called  for.  In   the guise of   charity all nations  have done this much and more  for  each other during the lust two years,  and not even  taken an I.O.U. for the  till we reach the highest counoij of the  nation's government. --' ���������  ,'. As the?prime function ��������� of a nation's  inedium of exchange is that of giving  : *>*.  8.fmvuAm**mrtin  fmr  surplus commodities delivered.  Each   nation's   goyernment   must  takeover all its  banking institutions,  abolish   interest   on   its   medium   of  exchange, and substitute percentage  cost for operation only;    Interost on  money,   when    a   legalized   practise,  amongst citizens, becomes the mortar  that holds the structure of  hell   on  earth together and makee* it possible  to add to it.    The bruin of the average  16-year old school boy should grasp  that a nation having whole control of  its medium of exchange need not issue  more money than to fill its arteries  of trade, as when filled it flown in an  unbroken circuit back to the nation's  treasury just as fast as it is sent out,  and inoyes slow or fast as the nnl ion's  pulse of trade rises and fal a.   Increase  in the nation's circulation  medium is  only   needed    in    proportion   to   thc  nation's growth in population.  The people's accumalated savings  are not represented in money but in  commodities, the value of which  stands to the individual's credit in tho  nation's only banking department  whon in marketable prod nets, and in  his own name when in fixed and un-  ciicuuibt'i'i-d propertied.

But lack of opportunity for one's  productiye energies would' be out bf  the question until the community^  state or nation had reached a point  where no more improvement for the  creation of wealth and comfort for  mankind Was required.  It must also be understood that the  state or :;atio*a must, take supvecac  control of commerce inasmuch as  most of it would be financed direct by  the state or nation, and naturally all  commerce would come under the supervision of the council of Automatic  Adjuster for production and distribution in all lines of industry, and thereby prevent gambling in any commodities to stimulate unnatural fluctuation in prices of same.  To argue that the state or nation  would be incompetent to handle such  a vast and complicated organization  would be equal to the accusation that^  the men who are now handling the  affairs of our state or nation would  deteriorate and become incompetent  to do for the state what tbey are now  competent and capable to perform for  tht corporations. These men under  the. new order of things would become  available foi* the state or nation.  You would ask, what of tbe private  capital invested in banking and other  industries?   To this we would reply  that what wea'th a citizen has legally  created and possesses he is entitled Ui  have and hold, when not in natural  resources, which it will be optional for  the state or nation  to exchange foi-  promptly j units of wealth.     This wealth or its  commodity  units he can, if he desires, make use of  for production   in   competition  with  government-financed   industries, .bnt  this wealth or units of wealth can no  longer increase'-.or. multiply itself by .  the process of interest.    Bent must be  legalized t*> cover wear &nd tear, on  the same basis   as  the   government  must be refunded the finance provided  Tor the creation of ^wealth and comfort  within the life or usefulness of such  creation.  We must not contend that under  this new order of social evolution all  human units will   be equal in value  and   usefiduest.   any   more   thai*   we.  contend   that    all   cows   are   equal  in     value    aud     usefulness.      Some  cows are high-priced at $50, others are  cheap at $1000 per head;     So with  human  units,     Some   are   born   and  bred to be leaders, others are born and  bred to be led, but sever the connection between the two and both will become equally helpless.  You will ask, what of the independent liberty of a citizen to choose the  vocation most congenial to him ? To  this we make anbwer, that a citizen  will have the same free and unrestricted liberty as before, so long as he  docs not interfere to get the fruit of  another fellow's earning beyond the  laws of the community, state or  nation; but if a state or nation legislates to prevent us from doing wrong  oi* harm to our fellowmen we must  obey or move to places where such  conduct is permitted. The aim of the  future reorganized state or nation will  not be to legislate to punish wrongs  but to legislate to provent the doing bf  wrong.  In closing, let me appeal to all organized laborcrd, both in factory and  field, nn well no recognized leadern in  state and national affairs, to amalgamate in a common council without  Bpite, bias or revenge for past wrongs,  for the good and uplift < f all, aa ho  who (a biased by wrong, sect, creed or  nationality is unfit to ait in thia council for all nations reorganization.

Since women could  not bear arms it was argued that  they ought not to vote. The fact  that all voters do not fight and that  fighting men have rarely been voters  seemed to have no effect upon the  minds of those who raised the objection. It is heard even in America,  where almost the only class of men  excluded from the polls is the regular army.  But the new mode of warfare has  swept away whatever appearance  of  validity    there was in    this old anti  argument.      Lloyd    George    in    his  speeches has always insisted that the  men  making munitions were just as  truly    fighting    the Germans    as the  men in the trenches.

Wearing Down the Enemy  By the Military Correspondent of the  London Times  Wc have perfect confidence here  that the Russian northern and western armies will continue their pressure so long as the present campaigning seasQri lasts. We in thc west  shall do The same, if for no better  reason than because we are all under  a mutual and explicit obligation to  continue, and because, though we  have some dissappointmenls, the  grinding effect of the general offensive, which has caused onr enemies  casualties amounting to 800,000 men  since June 4, will have a crippling  effect upon the man-power of the.  enemy and will end by abating his  pride.  We must look neither to thc right  nor to the left, but only straight in  front of us to thc end, and we must  steel our hearts against all impressions, emotions and suggestions  which incline us lo weakness in one  or another form. This wearing down  of the enemy's man-power has gone  very far, but it must go farther yet  to affect his resolution and exhaust  him. Our duty is, during the two or  three months of good campaigning  season which remains to us this year,  to fight on and fight ceaselessly, on  all fronts and all together, until the  spirit of Prussia and her dupes is  humbled to the dust. Thc cessation  of any one of our attacks, so long as  the weather and munitions hold, is a  crime against thc common cause, ahd  if we case down a little in the coming winter it must only bc with the  firm intention of renewing thc campaign at thc first favorable moment  iu 1917 with increased armaments and  with still more relentless vigor.  cine yourself ask your neighbors and  they  will tell you    of some sufferer  who has been restored to health and  strength through using Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills.     One who. has  always  a  good word to  say for Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills  is  Mrs.  Luther  Smith,  of  West Hill, Ont., who writes: "I feel  it a duty as well as a pleasure to tell  you  what   Dr.   Williams'   Pink    Pills  have done for me. I had an operation  for  tumors.     The  operation  in  itself  was   quite  successful,    but   I  was   so  badly  run down  and anaemic  that  I  did  not  g������in   strength,  and  thc  incision did not heal, and kept discharging for nearly a year, until I weighed  only    eighty-six    pounds and    could  scarcely walk across the floor.   I had  got so "sick of doctors' medicine that  I would vomit when I tried to  take  it.    A  good  friend  urged  me  to  try  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, so I bought  a box.      Before    they    were    gone I  thought I could feel a difference, and  I got a further supply.    By the time  I had    taken five boxes    the wound  ceased  discharging    and  commenced  to heal.    I took in all thirteen boxes  and    am    today    enjoying    the best  health    of my    life    and    weigh  140  pounds.   I sincerely hope anyone suffering as  I did    will give    Dr. Williams'  Pink   Pills  n   fair  trial,   and   I  feel sure they will not bc disappointed."

In Paris nowadays one  hears very little of the folly involved  in attempts to whitewash the German  people at the expense of the German  Emperor.  Accounts of the horrors perpetrated at Lisle and elsewhere show that  German soldiers have gladly.associated themselves as partners in the  crimes, and the French public agree  thoroughly with the eloquent protest  that has been made by M. Briand's  orders.  M. Briarrd has shown the gross illegality of the German action, and. has  appealed to neutral feelings of justice "and  humanity. *   .  He is able to claim that the French  Goverrrmcnt are in possession of satisfactory proofs of the accuracy of  the allegations made against the Germans, and he invites^ neutrals to an  independent verification of the outrages committed.   ..-"'  One "of .the'towns which is suffering most from this new form of German atrocity is Lille ��������� sometimes  known as the Manchester of France,  but  a more beautiful  Manchester.  The Bishop of Lille has addressed  an eloquent protest in the name of religion to the German general in command of the town, but protests of any  sentatives from other Alberta munici  palities jand boards of trade, of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, thc mortgage and> loan companies and the  banking  interests.  During the winter of 1914-15, the  Dominion Government advanced  some $14,000,000 for seed grain and  also for hay, groceries and other supplies for settlers, secured by one-  year lien notes, which were made a  first charge upon the land seeded or  and that is  rapidly growing.  Wheat has built thousands of miles  of railway lines through the western  wilderness. It has dotted the country with three thousand elevators. It  is  collected by these  elevators "from  bag on the car door; The car sealer  follows, reseals the car, collects the  sample bags and takes them to the  government office in the railway yard.

It consists in  dividing families, in taking a girl  here, another there, a father, or in  leaving alone one or two octogenarians in order to.allow the so-called  voluntarily evacuated people to revic-  tual themselves and' to lead a more  normal life by planting potatoes.
