Array Vol, X  ORESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1S1B  rso. a  ���������iUfUS  oldiers  ravor tne riatsrr  In the latest issue of the Veterans'  VVeefciy, the ��������� paper published by and  wolely in the interest of the returned  soldiers, David Loughnan, president  of the B.C. Great War Veterans'  Association, discusses the question o������  land settlement for soldiers. The  article   is   of  particular    interest . to  !*J    "E**.*^*.  the view the returned soldier takes of  the placing of him on the land, and  after some investigation the writer  endorses the proposal that the Kootenay Flats at Creston is the ideal  ���������oeatson for such a soldiers' settlement, always proyidea reclamation of  these lands can be accomplished. Mr.  Loughnan's article follows:  A very noticeable increase of interest has recently developed in the  question of land settlement for returned soldiers, and tlie subject is of such  vital importance that a definite  scheme, of operation wiii of necessity  require to he evolved shortly by those  in authority. Thus fat* no attempt  has he^n made towards finding a  'solution of what will become, after  t he war, one of the greatest and most  costly of provincial problems���������that of  rehabilitating the returned soldier.  While at present but comparatively  few of those returned are physically  fit to take up farming, even on a small  scale, those able and  eager   to do 60  warran t  ���������,������������rni 4jk c������i8iii*j5^rsi;  vi a j V4\ XiQ\.  in connection with the reclamation  could be completed in another season's  operations. On the American side  the engineers' have reported on all  phases of the undertaking, but nothing  definite can be stated until th������ Canadian scheme is worked out, owing to  the fact that the real drainage features  are to be at a, point below Nelson, and  at Proctor, where the west arm of  Kootenay lake is to be widened. It is  understood that the Idaho authorities  are prepared to pay pro rata for every  acre on  their side that is reclaimed.  A tract of about 40,000 acres lies  south of the boundary. The government has records showing the volume  of water that has had to be contended  with during the past twenty-five years,  and has, therefore, ample data upon  which to base a definite conclusion.  The completion of the survey and  observation work should be proceeded with at once, in order that a full  pronouncement of the scheme necessary might be secured.  The fertility of the soil has been  proven year after year on the Idaho  side, where the lands are not subject  to so great an overflow. Enormous  yields of all sorts of grain, hay and  roots are common.  Except for the timber that grows  along the banks of the Goat and Kootenay rivers, the country is free of  scrub and all ready for the plow. The  soil being of immense depth and of  great fertility, dairying and hog-raising could be profitably undertaken in  conjunction with fruit growing and  the usual grain and root crops.   These  ir#oi 1 rapper is  i*a  jr rozen in ^nacK  George Henry Fisher, an old-time  prospector and trapper, was found  dead in his shack in the hills, about  five miles above Sanca, on Wednesday.  This was the startling intelligence  telephoned Provincial police officer  Carter on Wednesday afternoon, by  ii.'tiis r3.rt*ve, snotiier i.Bxm.\\\sX' ti^ure in  the hills in the Kuskanook section.  Mr. Carter left the same afternoon  for Sanca to bring the remains down,  and they will most likely be taken to  Nelson for an inquest before burial.  Apparently Fisher had started out  on a trapping expedition, intending  to go to the headwaters of Goat River  ���������a trip he had taken before several  times. However, it would seem that  he bad collapsed at the end of the first  day's travelling, as the body, fully  dressed, was found lying on the bed  as if asleep. Lately deceased has  made his home at Nelson.  Fisher must have been a man of  about sixty years. B.e was in Kuskanook twenty years ago when the K;V.  was building in there. Since then he,  has been in and out of this section of  Kootenay much of the time both trapping and prospecting, being interested }  in several claims there as well as at  Sheep Creek.  to having Cultus Creek placed on the  map in the near future.  Mr. Rid path of Cranbrook is on the  yard crew staff at present, he and Mr.  Clayton filling up in the absence of  Messrs. Loasby and Gallant.  R. Jarrett, mayor of Kootenay  Landing, was here on Tuesday enroute  to Creston on a business visit.  Mr. and Mrs. Cameron are now sett  led  in  their   new residence on  Fifth  Avenue,  having   taken    the   Gallant  bunaralow.

Touhey has had word  from her husband that he is out of the  hospital, and is again back at work  within sound of the big guns.  /  tne immediate commencement of an  undertaking in co-operatiye land  settlement, which, as time progresses,  can be enlsr^ed s>s the occasion requires. While there is no desire on  the part of any thinking man to attempt to stamped** the government  into a hastily conceived measure, it  x\-.,x    .0 i.U,���������  J���������lv���������  ������s*������y*-*tf*sff"-.  in tnts question win be most unwise,  and productive only of hardship and  discouragement for the men. and a  retardment of the best interests of the  province^ One of the most pressing  needs in British Columbia to-dry is  that of agricultural produce. Greater  production of foodstuffs is rapidly becoming a world cry. And yet' tio  feasible opportunity has so far been  offered those willing and able to "do  their bit" in this respect. It is the  opportunity which is desired by many  a member of the Great War Veterans  Association���������the chance to get out on  his own land, and "make good," as he  did while serving the Empire���������and  surely the opportunity will not much  longer be denied him.  One of the most important factors  to he considered in connection with a  returned soldier land settlement  scheme would be that of climatic'conditions. The severely cold winters of  the northern interior might often  prove Loo much for men whose constitutions have become weakene I by  wounds and the terrible rigors of  modern warfare. Another essential  towards the success of any such undertaking would he tho establishment of  co-operative community centres. Life  is too short to the man who h������is boon  ''over there," and no amount of persuasion   would    induce   the   average  Holdier !<*���������   iiiii'V   lihiifieJf   rillvt*   oii   t.'ie  usual "homestead" proposition.  There is probably no tract of land  in British Columbia more suitable for  31 soldier eolony than that known as  tho, Kootenay Flats. Extending north  from tho United States boundary line,  these llatis comprise an area wome  twenty mites long and between (Ivo  and six miles wide, or approximately  .10,000 acres, all of which is available  with the exception of about 5000  -tores, known as the Reclamation  Farm. This ���������'farm" was attempted  Home years ago on a dyking system  but. the dyken failed. Tho (lata which  are entirely government owned, can  he reclaimed at a cost of about two  million dollars, < f which man the  '���������Mate of Idaho would,  in all pmbahil- ! located public utiliticn  upon carefully  fection, which fact gives rise to the  possibilities connected with the establishment of a  beet sugar factory.  Nearby markets exist . already.  Creston lies about midway between  the international boundary and the  northern extremity of the fiats. Then  again these lands are situatou centrally between the coal mining regions of  the Crows Nest, and the metalliferous  mines of the Slocan and Rossland  districts, and the smelter town of  Trail. Practically next door lie the  lumber camps of East Kootenay.  From this it will be readily seen that  the question of markets would not  enter into the problem. Ample means  of transportation are also in existence,  with great possibilities of development.  From the above cursory details it is  evident that in the Kooteuay Flats,  subject, of course, ato their reclamation, as ideal a situation, having regard to climate, fertility, transportation and markets, exists as is to be  found in any part of British Columbia  for the colonization of returned  soldiers.  Many schemes have, from time to  time, been propounded as to the most  practical method of establsshing and  running such a colony, and much forethought, mill p������..������etw_..������i t*xpe;:e::c'*  would be necessary to ensure success  from the start, but such things have  been done and can most successfully  be repeated in British Columbia. A  co-operative corporation on the linos  of the Sask Co-op. Elevator System,  or one of the many Californian Cooperative Colonies might he put into  efh'ct with splendid results without  t!i.-- dangfiv of experimentalism l������t*ing  incurred.  Returned soldiers will be found to  bo particularly adaptable, full of initiative and suitable in every way to  community colonization, having fully  learned the lessons of practical comradeship on the battlefield. On a  community basin workers in every  line of endeavor would find their opportunity of advancement and ultimate independence, for in ordoi to  make a, success of the agriculture* side  of the proposition it must necessarily  b.V'umo a ci'lf-supporting and rolf-  ciMitnineil area, thereby giving the  arti/an an equal chance with tho  farmer. It would he expedient for  the   government   to   build   centrally  R. Gallant, who has been second in  charge of the yard crew, left a few  days ago for West Toronto, Ontario,  where he will be employed in future.  Both he and Mrs. Gallant were popular  citizens and their departure is regretted, r    ~ .

Mrs. Dennes and Mrs. and Miss  Goodman were Creston callers between trains on Saturday,  While at the sale at Wasa recently  Ike Lewis invested in a hay baler and  next season intends to go into the hay  export trade.  Freight congestion in the yards is  cleaned up again aud both east and  westbound traffic is being handled in  and out as fast as it offers.  Yardmaster Loasby expects to go  back on duty about Monday next.  Ke is feeling pretty nearly as well as  usual again.  When it comes to forecasting weather and election results Conductor  Graves and Mayor Daly make -t great  team. Taking climatic conditions for  it this week the con's, eyes must be  playing tricks on him; it certainly  wasn't ducks he was seeing at tho  Landing a few days ago.  Mr. and Mrs. McMasters were calling on Crouton friends between trains  on Monday. Sunday's train was two  hours late but no such good luck* for  them the following day.

The high scores  were made by Mrs. Maxwell and  Percy Boffey on this occasion, while  the fewer punch marks were discovered on the cards of Mrs. Dodd and R,  T. Telford. After a splendid supper  dancing was the order of the evening,  and in the spacious living room with  a good floor and music this feature  was heartily entered into by both the  juveniles and grownups.  On Tuesday night.  Mrs.  Boffey was  hostess and here the  biggest  surprise  of the season transpired.    Mrs. Dodd  who was low at the Timmons at home  captured  the ladies'  honors,  with E.  A. Penson similarly  successful,   while  J. M. Craigie for the first time figured  up the lowest of all  the playeis, with  Mrs. Cotterill for a partner  in the bad  luck.

While reclamation of the Kootenay  Fiats is largely a matter that the  authorities at Victoria are responsible  for, the turn eyents have lately taken  in connection with land settlements  for returned soldiers make it possible  that the federal authorities may be of  seryice on the drainage"proposition.  The original  scheme  was that each  each  province  should   be responsible  for looking   after   its   own  returned  veterans so far as practicable.    This  year, howeyer-, it became evident that  so far as land settlement is concerned  a   certain    amount    of   co-operation  must   obtain,  for the   simple reason    >  that many of the  soldiers from the  prairie are averse to tackling farming  there, but are quite willing to try out  life on the land in B.C. where climatic:  CGuuitiOus   at*: more to   their liking,  and where intensive farming is largely  the order of the day.

Advices from the United States as  to where reclamation is at. are all that  could be desired. Through Senator  Borah the drainage department at  Washington issues the statement that  just as soon as the remainder of the  work of investigating the project in  B.C. is completed and the data available the engineers from the two  countries can meet in conference and  in twenty-font* hours should be able  to say whether these lands can be  reclaimed. Should u definite pronouncement in favor of reclamation  be made, the senator suites that in  less than a month Washington authorities will have all the U.S. details to  get on with thp work arranged.  Tins is a very circumspect state;  ment of cu.se. and ns not more tnnn  two months work is required to complete the U.C ei������d of the engineering  work, there seems no valid reason of  any sort why British Columbia should  not get busy and let us have something definite as to whether reclamation can be successfully undertaken  at least.

One of thc chief benefits afforded  by the demonstration of these machines is thc help it gives to American and other new settlers who know  little about the implements being used in Western Canada.

Thc interest in this  competition among the young people  of Alberta is shown by thc fact that  there were fifty-three entries, including fifteen girls.  The success of this competition has  assured it3 continuance for several  years. Next year there will also be  a sheep shearing competition at the  summer fair, and sheep and pig feeding competitions at the winter fair,  in addition to a baby beef competition, all open to boys and girls. The  period during which the animals will  be in sole care of thc youngsters will  be extended to at least three months.  There can be no doubt that such  competitions have much influence in  adding to the attractiveness of life  on thc farms, especially to the children, and for i.ms reason, n lor iiotii-  ing else, they arc more than justified.

Australia wants  vessels, and wants them badly, and  negotiations are now being carried  on by the shipbuilders of British  Columbia with the government of the  commonwealth with a view to acru-  ing  orders.  At present there are six shipbuilding yards operating in British  Columbia, and thc program so far  provides for the construction of forty-one wooden vessels. Twelve of  these are auxiliary wooden schooners, and compose the fleet of the  Canadian West Coast Navigation  Company, two are for the Canadian  government, and twenty-seven are  contracted for by the imperial munitions  board.

In Germany, and also in Japan, such  an association is widely considered to  be inevitable. But the' question still  remains what, if any, outward form,  shall this essential co-operation take.  As the Germans deny the reality of  the world community and base their  policy upon the assumption of an  inherent antagonism between juxtaposed states, they cannot conceive of  this future relation as other than an  offensive and    defensive    alliance  of  the older  f-T.-l-Vf*     *-.-1**1      11C     I ,-?.-r^.-i,;.-,���������n  selfish purposes.

The reason for this  special  regard  is   the   market   for   spuds.      The  dealers,   at  any   rate,   agree  that  whether buyers on the prairie will  continue   to   take   potatoes   from  B.C. is a  matter dependent  upon  weather conditions  there���������and the  ability of the railway companies to  supply cars.    Market  experts fear  that a spell of mild   weather   there  would  automatically shut off exports from   this   province   as   the  prairies are said to be well supplied  with   tubers,   but    they   are   not  available to consumers during cold  weather.      As     yet    there   is   no  tendency  amongst growers to sell  in spite of  reliable  information to  the effect that Alberta alone has a  surplus of almost a million bushels  and   Manitoba    at   least   500,000  bushels more   than it  requires for  aiso worsmg out  soldier land-settlement question  conjointly, if the B.C. department  of agriculture is in earnest about  reclaiming Kootenay Fiats now is  surely the psychological moment to  be up and doing.  |ITH THE HIGH PRICES poultry products and all classes of livestock  bring these times, both from the humane as well as the financial side of  the question it is important that these be kept in the very best of health and flesh-  producing shape.

Nor is their  wisdom less worthily proved than  their valor, for if the ideal to be pursued is that of a sure and certain-  hope of the resurrection of war in  Europe, it would be impossible to  find a better, among a million expedients, than the precise expedient  they  have chosen.

The New York World printed what
purported to be (and was) a partial
abstract of the interview, but later
It is uow possible to tell the whole
story, and also give additional information as to what the famous interview contained.
Something over nine years ago, in
July. 1908, Wilhclm II., then and now
emperor of Germany, sat on the deck
of the imperial yacht Hohenzellern,
riding at anchor off Bergen, Norway,
and talked with William Bayard Hale
then a highly respected American
writer of unquestioned attainments.
His majesty Talked long���for two
hours. He had dir-*.d well, but not
wisely, as the saying gees, and his
words came with a rush, and they had
a sting to them. He was an emperor,
but more than that, he was'a hitman
being, and as all human beings are
wont at times to do, he was unburdening his heart, telling, if you choose,
"what was on his mind," venting a
long pent up spleen, airing his hatreds.
Hale listened, inwardly atrcmblc,
outwardly calm. For although since
classed as a German propagandist,
Hale has never been rated a poor reporter, and when he left the yacht he
reasoned that he carried with him the
most momentous interview ever accorded .a journalist. And unquestionably it was. It was full of dynamite
from start 'to finish. It reeked with
abuse of Ens-land and King Edward;
it slurred and maligned the Catholic
church iii Germany and elsewhere, it
damned the Japanese and the Anglo-
Japanese alliance; it predicted thc
world war.
In. other words, Wilhelm II. as far
back a.s 1908 had revealed himself as
thc character in the role of which he
uow stands convicted���thc world's
troublemaker. As such England and
the rest of the world might have appraised him with more or less, accuracy, immediately the Hale interview
appeared in print. But the interview
did not appear. It was suppressed.
The kaiser had talked for publication,
but it  was  suppressed,  nevertheless.
One printed copy of thc interview
Is still extant and in this country. It
Is in a p.ace where neither tlie German government nor thc United
States government nor any government can get at it.    Some day it will

sunimer of 1908 when Hale, the royal
interviewer, departed from the royal
yacht mentally bulging with the verbal high explosives that he carried.
What  the kaiser had to tell  him  was
. not only astounding in itself, but
more so in view of the fact that the
German pcopY were then indulging
in a great hubbub over an interview
thc emperor had a short time before
given to a representative of the London Daily Telegraph. The kais'-r's
tongue was too loose, so folks were
saying. I'rince von L'uclow, the then
imperial German chancellor, was of
thc same opinion, and the story goe-j
that he had obtained from his majesty
a pledge against loose talk to guard
against just such un international
sensation that Utile was about to

and  indiscretion     the    emperor    had

prove a permanent extinction. Self-
governing South Africa is not likely
to consent to a rehoisting of the
German flag in its neighborhood.
Self-governing Australia would fight
against having German submarine
bases re-established over against
the Australian coast. Canada is
concerned about the freedom of the
Pacific, and will not consent to the
re-establishment of menaces to her
trade routes. The question of the
German colonies is riot an English
question, but a British colony question. Germany in her colonial enterprises has proved herself an ill neighbor. Her activities have alarmed
those who wish for peace and quiet.
She  has also  proved .an  ill  adminis-
x ucrc lias recently ueeit uii improvement in the stocks of bread,
vegetables, potatoes and fruit, such
as is usual at this season. But this
improvement has not been so great
as was expected, and it is insufficient
to make good the decline in supplies
of meat and fats and also of milk.
The last named is falling in quality and rising in cost, and there is
also less of it. The still more menacing shortage in fodder is reflecting
and will reflect still more, on meat
and all fats.
The Berlin weekly ration of meat,
250 grams, was unobtainable; the experience was the same in other
towns, with the result that in many it
has been reduced to 200, and in some
even to 150 grams. The bread ration
is four pounds a week, and until it is
reduced there cannot be certainty
from scarcity of the disappointing
nature of the harvest, or  which,

ins other day a laconic tfrmsn
official statement announced the completion of the campaign in German
East Africa. Its significance was
little appreciated by a world whose
attention _was fixeel upon Cambrai
and the Kussian revolution. And yet
it marks the passing of one of the
great colonial empires of modern
times. When the war broke out German colonies occupied more than a
million square miles of African ter-.
ritory, an empire in area larger than
that lost by France under the Old

which preceded""the  Napoleonic era.

������these are measures of the present
struggle between the Briton and thc
German. We are entering the fourth
winter of the war, a war which German statesmen anu vjcrman sciic>ars

proclaimed was to be a contest between a modern Rome and a# contemporary Carthage, a contest in which
the German should play the Roman

Of all the cruel exploitations that
have disgraced the relations of- the
white race to the black, the brown,
and the yellow, that of Germany has
been thc most ruthless. For the sake
of the natives as well as of colonial
neighbors, it is to be hoped Germany
will have no dependents until she
learns better how to treat them.���

Made From Disabled Soldiers
in Re-education Courses
Chrysanthemums such as Manitoba gardeners have rarely seen were
shown in the recent exhibition of
work done by the soldiers in the vocational training classes conducted by
the military hospitals commission in
| connection with the Manitoba Military Convalescent Hospital in Winnipeg, and directed much interest to
the excellence of the horticultural
and gardening courses offered to the
Tlie number of prizes which thc
boys carried off in the fall fairs emphasized the gardening end of the
work, but less has been said about the
faci'itics for horticulture, and landscape gardening which arc available
for  the men  who  want  such  courses.
There arc fine greenhouses and
hot frames, and under the direction
of Mr. Fred Nichols the men are
making fine progress. Florists arc
turning out such blooms as are not
often seen outside the southern countries.
With Canada's ever increasing
prosperity, the number of city people who demand summer vegetables
in the winter season multiplies, and
the future for gardeners with hot
frames and the proper equipment to
cater to these testes grows more
golden. With this in mind, many of
the returned men :ire p'.Mining to establish gardens just outside the large
cities with thc intention of supplying
the markets in the summer, and the

In addition to these men who arc
taking the different courses as vocational rc-odueation because their disabilities prevent them returning to

The medical evidence as to the
malnutrition of the German population accumulates. Their sufferings
from epidemics���from dysentery,
"hunger typhus," and cholera���are
probably overstated, but special ailments following underfeeding are
emphatically referred to by neutral
doctprs. The body can accustom itself with wonderful rapidity to smaller quantities cf feed, but only up to
a certain point; and a much longer
period of the reduction, it is feared
by German experts, will see the consequent elimination of a part of the
population, though it will naturally
be the weaker part. The death rate
is steadily going up and the birth
rate declining. In Munich, for example, in the twelve months ended
recently, there were 8,409 births and
12,418 deaths.
Whether the certain growing shortage in raw materials is being counter-balanced by economies and tlie
vaunted discoveries of substitutes
is very doubtful in view of many
pessimistic laments to the contrary.
Roth war output and ordinary industry are manifestly feeling the pinch.
Lack of labor and transport is leading to a disastrous famine of coai.
Altogether, the conditions are such
as to make thc moral conditions of
the  German  people very  bad,  if not

More than this. When the war began England had only a fleet. The
English expeditionary army of less

her military machine is as powerful
