The sole topic of intei'est in  tpe U.S.. at the present time appears  to be the war. and this may account,  in some measure, for the lack of  interest which the Idaho people have  shown of late, in drainage. I pointed  out,   however,  that while."we niust  Wiii ttt t������i8 ��������� li-Gut wc  iiiiiSu CArry O"o  at  home.    Great   reliance, and   faith   is  placed   in Senator Borah as   to his  ability to push throngh Idaho's share  in   the   scheme.   There "ip no .gbod,  however, resting on their oars and I  urged that the Senator be appealed to  4������ get.the j^r^eebvp^  the Washington   authoieities;wittethe  view that they should in turn appt*bach  Ottawa. . Sir*Robert Borden   is often  at    Washington.   and   is   personally  known to Senator   Borah,  and much  good  would result from a conference  between the two should opportunity  offer.    Co-operation  along these lines  was   .promised.     Leaving     Bonners  Ferry I met Mr. Reeder at Spokane  fqr a few hours.-   He is still as hopeful  as ever as to  the ultimate successful  drainage of the Valley.    Just west of  the summit of the Cascades a freight  train had jumped the track and crashed through the side of the suowshed  with the result that we  were h.elo up  for ten hours.  SOLDIERS FAVOR SCHEIE  Welcomed on Every Hand  Arriving at Victoria about noon,  Monday, respects were paid to our  member, Mr. Speaker Keen, who was  pleased to provide me with a seat on  the floor of the house. The Minister  of Lands recognised me at once, came  round the Speakers chair to me for a  fow minutes conversation, enquiring  'After Creston, "the beautiful valley,  and our goneral welfare. Later. I met  the leader of the opposition. . Mr.  Bowser, who said he had recently  read with interest a letter by me in  the Nelson News, saying reclamation  was feasible, He \vac quiteconviheed,  he said,-but hefailel to explain why  ho was not so convinced when leader-  of the; government, which left the  Reclamation survey in an unfinished  condition for four years.  Irrigation Rrosjrening  Now as to Creston's several wants  which/engaged my time during the  next few days I found that. Mr. Keen  had iilready, true to h,ia word, taken  up the most of them with the departments. The Minister of Lands, in  whoHe department Irrigation comes,  had giyen itiHti-UHationH for Mr. , IJil-ei-  to proceedavith all posBible expediency  to carry out the survey of the projected Arrow Creek-Creston irrigation,  system.

I     kixilitial    lull    lln:  The   convention   of the Great  War Veterans was scheduled for  Saturday.      The   day   before   I  met   some   members   ofY the executive,    making   arrangements  for the'-next day's  programme.

The convention was hard at it  all the time and a returned soldiers land settlement scheme  thoroughly considered. A number of recomendations were,  drafted intended to������erve a's,siig-  gestions^' to the Government  without prejudice in any legislation they might see tit to bring  down for the rehabilitation oi5  returned men on the land.  As it Ir intended to publish in  full these recomendations in the  press of the province I will not  enlarge upon them hero oxcupt  to say that under general recco-  mendation No. 8 it is stated that.  "The reclaiming of the Kootenay  Flats near Creston bo strongly  recommended by this convention,  as being an especially attractive  area for a community settlement  for returned soldiors."  'Apparently, so far ae the  eoaut. is concerned,' the settlement,  of returned soldiers has received  the ernest consideration'of many  public bodies, including hoards  of ��������� trade, women's and civic  organization. A delegation of  six, of which I wa������ m.vde ohair-  , man, was aolcctcd by tho conr  vontio'n to wait on the premier  the following lVfoiulay niid pre-  fient onr VcocoiiieiKlationH.

Without question,  except possibly the premier, he is the  busiest man in the parliament buildings.

Canada's Wheat Crop  It is estimated that Canada's  wheat crop last year, including the  vield in the west and Ontario wheat,  was about 215,000,000 bushels. A  careful survey has shown that, on  December 1, in addition to ��������� seed requirements, the amount of Canadian  wheat on this side of the Atlantic  was about 112,500,000 bushels, of  which 8,500,000 bushels were in  the United States en route to thc  allies. This estimate included a con-  i siderable amount of wheat still in  farmers' hands.  One Load We Are Kid Of  F%1 IS2     A"-������1#!-t5?

Will Be Free From the Burdea of  Carrying a Pirate Nation  Professor Forester, in a reply to  Grand Admiral von Tirpitz, said: "It  is by being carried upon the back of  thc British world empire that we  have acq ired our greatest riches."  In a letter to Privy Councillor Rathe-  man, Albert Ballin wrote: "I realize  as never before that all the increase  in our wealth, all the success which  attended our enterprise in thc year  before the war,Was owinj; to our in-  ��������� tercourse with thc isritish empire."  The British have assumed a tremendous load in this war, but one compensation, at anv rate, will be that  they will be free from the burden of  carrying a pirate nation like the Germans on its back. Never again will  it be said that the British empire was  policied by the British in order that  it might be exploited hi safety by  the  Germans.���������Montreal   Herald.

How Germans  rA rest Prisoners  Italian Soldier    Gives    Some    Facts  From Personal "Experienc***  An Italian soldier belonging to a  machine gun corps, who escaped thc  hands of the Germans in-the forced  retreat from the Carso. writes as follows to a friend in Canada:  I have learned that a large number of the. Italian prisoners taken b3r  the enemy were at once set to work  at  the  front,  so  that  thcy  had     to  fight against their own comrades,  and were exposed to their fire. At  the present moment, instead of being i  sent to concentration camps, they  arc being employed on defence  works, which the enemy, fearing a  powci'iul attack by tiie anied forces,  are throwing up in great haste and  fear.    It has come to the knowledge | lu  It is now close upon a century  and a half since, as thc outcome of  the American War of Independence,  the English-speaking world was divided into two groups. During thc  last one hundred years these two  groups, the British empire and the  United States, have lived on iriendly  terms with never a hostile shot fired  between them. And during this  period the old feelings of bitterness,  thc suspicions of each other, the*  (jealousies, have gradually died  away and disappeared.  And now, says the Regina Leader,  r\        T   !%"������*������ i~ ^*-f C*i-o +���������*%?+ y*^v������������ j-* m������ ** x-x .ry *-*-���������������������*. ���������-������ *������������������.,  of the secretary of national assistance that the German military commander of Udine, soon after the province was occupied by the enemy, issued the following proclamation:  (1) Within six hours, the inhabitants must surrender all the arms in  their possession to ihe commander,  at the different places indicated by  him.  (2) Within six    hours they    must  Kvered in  Berlin  Philharmonic  Hall, j  ,      Mh Association    in    t  ^STlhf Zf^L^V nn*^n* I ballroom of the Hotel Astor, in N<  viiege of all nations in times oi  peace, the right to open highways of  international trade. That sort of freedom of the sea wc had before the  war."  Of course they had it, but freedom  and privileges that arc shared by  other nations are not to thc taste of  Germans like Count Reventiow. No,  indeed!  "What we understand today by  this doctrine," says he, "is that .Germany should possess such maritime  territories and such naval bases that  at the outbreak of a war we should  be able, with our navy ready, reasonably to guarantee ourselves the  command of the seas, Wc want such  a jumping-off place for our navy as  would give us a fair chance of dominating thc seas and of Being free of  the  seas   during  a  war."  Reports of thc-speech in thc German press show that "cheers" were  interpolated at this point. No doubt  there  were more  cheers  when    this  j Y ofk,   told   several   interesting   anec  dotes.  "Col.

" 'Good heaven,' Boiling said, 'do  you mean to say you just let them  drop in -the dark���������they might light  on thc kaiser or anybody erse.' He  answered 'yes.* Boiling then asked:  'Where do you carry them?'  "Hc said: 'We carry them in the  lower plane.

Then he said: 'You  thing  tor any German who would consent  to relinquishing thc coast of Belgium, or the German ambition to  hold  the northern  coast  of  France.

Major Murphy told of his experience in France in an effort to get an  official outfitted. He said the merest  details were lacking, and explained  "I tried to get a push button. I  waited three weeks for my push button, and when it came, I think it had  come from thc palace at Versailles.  "It was a great, beautiful brass  thing with carving on it, and I looked at it and then I found it would  not ring.

The  leading  section  goes up  the    trench     about  fifty  or  seventy-five  yards  and  puts  in a block of barbed wire to.^ prevent  re-enforeements    from    coming    up.  ���������She next. section    goes    down     the  communicating   trenches    and     performs the same operation. Thc third  section  bombs  the    Germans     from  their  dugouts.    Thc other    section's  business  is  to  look out for  the  salvage of captured machine guns   and  other  arms.

The view is the true one, not only  in a military sense, but in the larger������  economic, political and humanitarian  sense. Thc ultimate objective at  which Germany launches her power  is not France, or Russia, but the  subjugation of the English-speaking-  world and the substitution of a Teutonic universal power. The "Hymn  of Hate," correctly voices thc German aspiration:  French and Russian, they matter not.

But thc division is much  less  apparent  to  the    rest    of    the  world than to thc two halves. While  these are acutely sensible of the differences,   the   rest  of   thc   world  has  been impressed with  their    oneness.  And those  that have  hated  one-hali"  of the English-speaking    world    extended their hatred to the other half,  anci have used every means conceivable to blind the two halves to their  own  mutuality   in   order   to   be   able  to overcome each half separately.

The  arch had not yet been joined, and  his scheme was lo prevent the joining and to demolish thc two pillars  successively.  "But the interest or thc two halves  was too much for the clever scheme.  The mutuality was so _ necessitous,,  indeed, as to compel^ a joint defence  and joint offence- against the common peril, lest thc defeat of one-half  lay the other half open lo spoliation,  as it surely would have done.  "If there is a directive Providence  in history, the separation of thc  United States from the Mother  Country surely was decreed in order  to confirm liberty and democracy in  both, as now the participation of  both in this war has come about, in  order that Anglo-Saxon civilization  of freedom and self-rule nir j be perpetuated in all its various  regions."

APR. 12  In following up its policy  of retrenchment 'the provincial  govern-  ui*5i* v   Oiu   a,  very   wise  thing the  first of the month when it despens-  ed with the services of all the game  guardians and the whole game department, with the intention of reorganizing the same on at least an  equally effective and less expensive  plan.  It is proposed  in   future to  ad-  with at least some consider-^tibha;������;  to where folks think work can be  done to assure the greatest good to  the greatest number.  As we remarked last week in  the old days when the government  spent more than double what it  collected in taxes it was possibly in  order to stand back and take what  they deemed fit to give -as without  protest. Now, however, the  common people are paying in 300  per cent, more than . is returned  them, they are entitled to a more  direct saj- in affairs than is offered  through. political association  channels���������both as to bosses as well  as to where, when and how the  money shall be expended.  iiiiiiia-jci  uc^caa viaivu i  game conservation board of five  members- Two of these will be  permanently employed, while the  other three will be required for  quarterly meetings at which they  will receiveand consider suggestions  for the conservation of game.  The enforcement of the game  laws will be entrusted to the provincial police, who will receive a  much-needed raise in pay for taking dn these added duties.  Provided always that the govern -  ment has not made this move to  get rid of about 50 Tory officials  only to be replaced  later on under  *s  one pretext and another by half a  hundred Grit job needers,. the new  order will be welcomed, on the  score of economy  at very slightly  impaired efficiency.  ^ ��������� ���������  In every way the provincial  police is the man for the work.  Judicial duties necessitate his  making trips over his territory and  no good reason exists why he  should not combine game-protection  effort with the enforcement of law  order. In these times of shortage  of money and man power the new  order of things has everything to  . commend it.  Now that we have positive proof  that we are paying into the  provincial treasury in taxes at  least  three   times   more   than   is  COSTaim? h������olr  t.0    tht*.    Vail������v in   the.  way of road improvements and  other public works, it seems to us  that the government should at  least take the community into its  counsel when it is. deciding what  amount shall be spent, and where,  and how.  In other provinces the system  followed ia to vote certain amounts  to be spent in specific places and  when the estimates come down  ratepayers know exactly how much  has been alloted for each section,  and whereabouts therein such  work will he done.  Here tlu* reverse policy applies.  A lump sum is voted for Kardo  riding, but no one has the remotest idea how ranch will Vie expended, or where, and a"*, to just  how it is finally decided to make  the expenditure most are eojiaily  ignorant. And, worst of all, to  got to know any of th* minor details oven in-thi.*-: eonneetio'* it is  neeesnary to wait until tin; legislature asHemblep. and norm* opposition member oan he found to ask  the necessary questions^  Under existing conditions not  only havo   wo tho   right   to   know  fxOOd @BMt ������B &&������������  In your cursory *saccent on the  first syllable) perusal of the waterworks company notice of its .application to revise rates, of course  you noticed that said ap'plicatien  would be heard at Victoria. Possibly, in digesting the notice, you  also gathered the stated fact that  copies of the revised schedule could  be obtained from the water rights  officials at either Nelson or the  capital.  Dont cuss the company for these  rather irritating' inconveniences.  The authorities conferred these  favors on thern in their charoter,  doubtless, and forls they would  have been not to avail themselves  of some protection thus afforded.  Any and ail of us wouid have done  likewise���������and its too late, anyway,  to kick to any advantage now.  Now, if we only had a village or  rural municipality fighting the  proposed rate increase would be  simple, but without it who is going  to take up our quarrel with the  foe. The women's or farmers' institute or Fruit Growers Union has  no license to tackle the job, and  the board of trade has no funds to  send a man to Victoria to oppose  the application, even if it cared to  undertake such, a work. Incidentally, too, little more than two  weeks will elapse before the matter will be decided.  Chickens always come home.to  roost, but assuming its an ill wind  that blows nobody good, possibly  Creston's water troubles combined  with the fleecing  the  Valley   as a  whole now knows it has got, and  is still getting, in the matter of  general taxation, will be the proverbial "last straw that will shortly  show beneficial effects on a rather  long-suffering community.  Farm Help  A very recent utterance by Hon.  J. A. Calder, the Liberal-Unionist  minister of immigration, that "the  world is practically on the verge of  starvation, and that labor might  have to be taken away from the  cities and towns and placed on the  farms," has revived the cry for the  importation of Chinese by the  federal government.  The commissioner of agriculture  for Ontario has made the statement that a hundred thousand  Ohineno should be imported under  bond to l������t* employed unde.- thc  direction of the Dominion government on Canadian farms, as this is  the actual farm labor shortage at  the present time.  ^JSSPITS war conditions^ we fe^ve not as yet felt the pinch  I cf hunger In Canada.    Conseauentlv. it is difficult for us  %SX1C4    U.10L  1!  r  in the matter of food. After nearly four years of war, our Allies  arc living frosn hand to mouth, depending entirely on the safe  arrival of food ships from across the Atlantic.  Because of our comparative nearness to our Allies* and because  of our *wids, fertile ������reas, this continent must continue to feed  Europe. If we fail, hundreds of thousands of people may starve  and our sarnies *be denied a conclusive victory.  A bumper crop, a record harvest and increased meat production in Canada  ������??N be worth *������Ve winning of many battles to the Empire and our Allies at  this critical ocriod.  a  1HCJ  & * wiucbon Issipera  Canada must raise for export at least 250,000,000 bushels of wheat more in  1918 than in 1917, to enable the Allies to maintain even their present  restricted rations.  I  They shall NOT starve !   make that your slogan.  Flans have been formulated which,  on the authority of The Director of  Agricultural Labor, positively ensure*" that  labor  will   be provided  when needed, to harvest the maximum crop. Authorities agree that  the world1-wide shortage of food wiii  continue /for years after the war.  The farmer is assured a ready and  profitable market for all the grain  and meat that he can produce.  The Empire depends on ihe Canadian Farmer to "carfry oil"  CANADA FOOD BOARD  Chairman  W8  V  ->  j^iauijajiam.^11^^  ported in regiments encourages  one to believe the question is having safe, sane and sure attention  and that, as with conscription, in  good time  remedial  <3uua<������      Will  h(P>  forthcoming.  Without hampering operations  in necessitous" industries Canada  has the necessary farm help within  her own boundaries ready and  willing to do their bit at food production if they are shown the way  and given an intelligent lead, with  just enough compulsion to ensure  that all the eligible share the effort  equally.'*  Canadian manhood, over military age or not quite up to militia  Act requirements; has not sunk so  low that the matter of keeping the  British .and the other Allies from  near-starvation   depends    entirely  upon flooding Canada with the riff  raff of China���������under bond, ox-  otherwise.  To virtually say that a young  country that voluntarily enrolled  at least 400,000 of her young manhood for the life and death struggle  overseas has so far forgotten its  obligations in other war-time  activities seem to us about the  basest slander ever uttered.  If the question is put squarely  up to the people, accompanied by a  tolerably sane plan of ean.piii.a-r to  save the situation, Canadians will  not hesitate to doff their hats and  don the overalls���������and should there  be any hesitation on the part of  tiie men folk t."UGt the women to  more than  deficiency.

Meeting with Vancouver Board  Thif concluded .my business at Victoria and I left at  miduigkt for Vancouver,   where the  next day I had a  short meetm*"** with  the or**sident and  officials of the board of trade.    I gave  them some of our booklets on Reclamation   and   generally discussed  the  matter.     JVIy particular object was to  point out to them that whereas in the  past the ei ast organizations had been  very jealous of   the  upper country in  what we had and   in  all we aimed to  get, the  time had  surely come  when  we should work together.      As the Interior of   the   province   developed so  most    assuredly    would    Vancouver  grow   and   prosper.       Our   problems  most certainly were also*their problems and  they should  help and assist  us io working them out.    Ih the past  they, had   thought    too   much   that  V������ine.onyer- included   the .whole of the  province.    As an  instance,  their   association   of   boards   of   trade styled  themselves ''The Associated Boards of  Trade  of   British  Columbia."   I protested against this in accordence with  the resolution passed  bv the Aasociat-  ee Boards of Trade of  fi.islern British  Columbia as boiling   misleading, both  to tho public   ana  the   government.  Speaking  of   Reclamation   I  pointed  out   that whereas one   of their   immediate problems was the drainage of  tho Fraser Valley,  one of   the most  important problems to Kootenay was  the drainage of  the Kootenay PlatR.  In   these, ^particularly,   we could help ,  each   other.   The Vrncouver officials  impressed   me aw  being very alive to  the need  of working together   and I  am Hure  that much good  will  result  from our short talk.

If 60,000 Canadian farmers each replaced one  horse with a Ford, 250,000 acres would be added to the  Nation's source of food supply and enough extra food  made available to feed 100,000 people.  Just think what a great service this means to the country at the present time and the benefit to the farmers from  the sale of the food produced on this acreage.  A Ford car also saves the farmer a week or more of  ���������valuable time each year, which can ha used for further  productive work.

Rheumatism and eczema frequently go together, and in this case caused thc most keen distress imaginable.  Ail the swelling and puifmess result-'  ing from many years of rheumatism  have disappeared, and there is not a  pain or an ache left.  Mr. G. H. Ray, R.R. No. 1, Kincardine, Ont., writes: "Mrs. Ray luis  been using your Kidney-Liver Pills.  She was very bad with rheumatism  and eczema, and had had that fearful  itch for twenty-seven years It was  simply terrible what she suffered. I  persuaded her to try $1.00 worth of  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. She  is now on the last box, and let me  teii yon she scarcely knows herself,  she is so free from both these diseases. All the swelling, and puffiness  caused by the rheumatism has. gone  away, arid she has gone down in  weight 18J4 pounds. She never has  an ache or pain, biliousness or sick  headache all these months. She often says herself 'How glad I am that  I know what to do instead of paying  doctors so much to make me  worse.' "  There is only one way that the  poisons in the blood can be cleaned  away and' the cause of pains and  aches removed, and .that is by the  hcaltful action of thc kidneys, liver  and bowels. Because Dr. " Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills act directly and  specifically on these organs and insure their activity thcy remove the  cause of rheumatism and other dreadfully painful and fatal diseases.

Creston is under obligation to be  out in full force at the Red Cross  whist at Wynndel on Saturday night.  The people of Wynndel are generous  supporters of everything in the entertainment line Creston has to offer,  and it is up to the Creston people to  return the compliment on Saturday  night, especially in such a good cause  as Bed Cross. It's not a bit further  from Creston to Wynndel than it is  from Wynndel to Creston, and  the strawberry townspeople are entertainers par excellence. Be on.  hand.  Rev. A. L.

The amount  B.C. is asked to< raise is $100,000, and  of this the East Kootenay country is  crlled upon to gather in $8,000 at least.  Mr. Carr put the mutter up to a committee of the Creston Board of Trade  while here, and that organization has  agreed to handle the campaign in the  Valley.

The report of Guy Constable, the  board's delegate to Victoria to interview the government on the finishing  up of Kootenay iriats Reclamation  survey as well as other matters, and  to attend a land settlement convention of the Great War Veterah's Association, was the big feature. Mr.  Constable briefly sketched the various  matters dealt with by him while at  the capital, a full report of which appears in this issue. His report was  unanimously adopted and a vote of  thanks tendered him for his efforts,  which necessitated spending two  weeks on the trip owing to the Veterans convention being postponed a  matter of fiye days from the date  original!*7 fixed. In connection with  the conference with the soldiers Creston is indebted toCn.pt. J. A, P. Crnm-  ton for services rendered by him, as  he was a delegate to the meeting and  -boosted longand strong for the Koote-  nViy Flats as a land settlement area  for the veterans.  The Military Y.M.C.A. drive for  funds in the Valley will be looked  after by a committee made up of Dr.  Henderson, S. A. Speers and Cha's.  Moore, with the former as chairman."  It will be necessary to find canvassers  for aii points in the Valley, as w**ii as  Sirdar and Yahk, which Creston will  also handle in this effort.  The reports of committees  showed  that the fall fair proposition  is hung  up temporarily    waiting for definite ,  assurance that a government grant is  coming and the size thereof.    For the \  finance committee Chairman .Tohnson  reported guarantes to date of $180 and ,  a   few   more   prospects   still   to   see. j  Chairman Bevan reported an   unsne- j  eessful effort to induce the local road :  boss to put the scraper   at work while |  the highways were in  a  muddy state '  and in prime condition  to respond to  scraper   treatment.    The  matter had  also' been put up to the   road  superintendent   with "little    more    success.  This report precipitated a yery general  discussion   of   tne   road   question   in  which  most all   present   voiced   tho  opinion   that  the   present  system   is  giving poor satisfaction.    Instructions  Were given the secretary  to  take the  matter up with Victoria.  The Women's Institute wrote asking the board to co-operate with thorn  in getting the Y.M.C.A. to undertake  work here especially for the boys.* As  the  proposition  is quite a large one  may charge for water has been filed in  the office of the Comptroller of Water  Rights at Victoria, and in the office of  the Water Recorder at Nelson, together with a copy of a memorial  which has been submitted to the  Board of Investigation as supplemental y to the. said revised schedule of  rates, and that the Board of Investigation has fixed the First day of May,  1918, at ten o'clock in the forenoon, at  the   Parliament   Buildings,  Victoria,  ������,,-,    1--.,-���������! ..V-      M. .:������������������      *      ������.������--,  X\IL      laraa lllg      a/aa<j     ������luuiti.������i(lU6i       ii/a        vxxx^  approyal of the said revised schedule.
