Mr. Tomkinson is now  negotiating   with a   manufacturing  firm with the object of gelling the  new contrivance on lhe market.  London, Nov. 16.���������������������������Premier Asquith stated today in thef(House of  Commons that the war already was  costing Great Britain from $4,500,-  000 to $5,000,000 daily.  ���������������������������The greatest single demand ever  made upon the material resources  of Great Britain was voiced by Premier Asquith when in the House of  Commons, he moved an additional  credit for.war purposes of $1,250,-  000,000,. which, in addition to the  millions already voted'in August, is  equivalent lo an increase of more  than fifty per cent, in,the national  debt.- The.House voted unanimously for the additional'war. credit  of $1,250,000,000 'asked for by the  Premier. " The measure introduced  by the Government last week for an  additional army of ,1,000,000 men-  also was -adopted unanimously.  The" Premier lold the House that  the-largest,portion ofithe first $500,-  000,000 alreadj7votcd.hacLbeen expended} in lhe- conduct.of- military,  operations, loans to"5the'Alli"cs"<aricf  disbursement's'for'food," supplies.f oh  the country. ^ ,; * S7? ��������������������������� ���������������������������'- V.

The present  measure carried provisions to  March^31st,-^whiclu=svould=not_only_  satisfy the calculations based on  experience, but would leave in hand  a reasonable margin.

A few days ago it was  reported that the Allies had retaken  Dixmude, but this, report must have  been an error, for it has since been  offcially stated" that the Germans  are'still holding Dixmude, but have  been unable- to advance from that  point. Under dale of Nov. 18th a  report from London'says thc Germans have been forced lo completely evacuate the left bank of thc Yser  canal, and that the floods are seriously jeopardizing'the-German position at Dixmude." Recent days  have been entirely- favorable to thc  Allies, the report says, and it may be  certain that, the retreat of the enemy; from Dixmude is simply-a question ..of time.,      -   -������������������ *      ���������������������������,-   '���������������������������  .Between''bur-force's and the Germans, the whole way from Nieuport  to Dixmude,'' there is a .protective  sheet of-"water; and all.hope's'of an  advance by'.thc.erieniy in this .quarter'have been, frustrated;-,,7V1"���������������������������������������������' -'",  *i At,all" points-along-the'Aisiie thc  " "  "       f  RED CROSS WORK  AllielcLline refuses tp:yield*a.f6pt-o  ground.'-' -Nothing: of 'fan-'important  tufe'has been'rcpo'rtedyfrom^this  a'rtcr.the past .we'dk.7 -?'

Swin-  ton, who, describing the " recent  fighting around Yprcs', said: "Their  dogged perseverance -claims our  whole-hearted  admiration."  Berlin experts,;judging from the  reports reaching London, have been  discussing lhe German retreat from  Warsaw with great Condor. They  declare they are' as proud of the  skill with which this movement was  accomplished as are the British of  their retirement after the battle of  Mons. It would appear from the  reports now coming in"that the re-  trca Lo Lthc-Germa n s_toJheir=bordejk  fortifications, was-like the stretching of an elastic from its base-line.  The advance army having been defeated around Warsaw, could not  get a foot-hold lo enable it to bring  forward ils base-line, so had to retreat to the border. Here the Russian advance has thus far been  checked, and is meeting with tremendous  rcsislcnce.

INDIAN MISSION CHURCH  Father La j unc dedicated the new  mission 'church on the Indian reserve last Sunday. It will be remembered that the old church was  struck' by lightning on July 12th  last, and burned to the' ground.  The Indian department at once  came lo the assistance of the Indian's and set aside -31,000 towards  the erection of a new church.  rl he new edifice was erected on a  far prettier site and in a less exposed position, west of the Vernon  road and north of the Canyon road.  Wm. A. Russell superintended the  work on the building, and most of  lhe work was performed by the Indians themselves.  They now have a very neat building, and thc interior finish i.s quite  as-modern and artistic, as that to be  found in any of lhe churches in this  vicinity.  After the dedicatory services in  the afternoon, Father Lajune christened three dusky infants, which  looked like a good start in the right  direction.  NO. THREES IN NO.

Clark laid a  complaint against the Salmon Arm  Exchange the past week, charging  the Exchange wilh shipping "No. 3  apples under a No. 1 label. I lis attention was called to the box of  apples in question by a Calgary retailer, and the inspector at once  laid the complaint. The case was  tried before Magistrate Johnson, at  Salmon Arm on Tuesday, and, the  Exchange, manager pleading guilty,  thc minimum fine of $10 and costs  was imposed.  It developed al the trial lhal the  apples were packed in the orchards  of Frank Black. The box bore a  No. 1 label, bul lhe figure 1 had  been made inlo a No. 3 with a pencil, and it was claimed by Mr. Black  thai-he had sold the fruit for No. 3.  However, the commercial label for  No. 1 and No. 3 fruit is entirely different, and the Fruit Marks Act will  not allow No. 3's lo be packed in a  No. 1 labeled bd\\.  It was claimed by the Exchange  manager that there had apparently  been no intention on the pari of Mr.  Black lo get rid of No. 3 fruit for  No. 1, though the Exchange could  nol escape lhe charge as laid.  This should acl as a warning to  others, as il is an evidence that the  fruit inspector intends to enforce  Ihe Fruit Acl.

NOVEMBER 19, 1914  SPIRIT OF THE CANADIAN PEOPLE  Sir   Robert   Borden's   announcement   that  a  steady si ream ol' troops will pass from Canada to  Great Britain while the war lasts shows lhat the  Govern men I is   thoroughly  in   touch  with   tlie  spirit of lhe Canadian people.   Canada's first contingent of .'i(),()U0 picked men is already in training on Salisbury Plain, and will soon be ready to  lake ils place at lhe bailie front as "part of General French's army.. The arrival of these troops  in England marked an epoch in lhc history of thc  British Empire.   Thc German Emperor, thc archenemy  of Britain,   had  counted   upon   nothing  more than  passive hostility from   lhc Overseas  Dominions.    Me  had  nol  thoughb thai Canada  would send a man or a gun, bul would remain  neutral.   Tc immediate mobilization of the first  Canadian contingent was the answer of lhc Canadian Government, speaking and acting for thc  Canadian people.  which will make advances lo lhc Canadian Government from lime to time as required Tor naval  and military purposes. This means lhal thc Government will have no dillicully in financing so far  as the war is concerned.      v  The completion in this satisfactory manner of  the financial arrangements for war expenditure  will tend greatly to improve the general situation  in Canada. If Canada had been obliged to raise  by domestic issues any substantial pari of our  war expenditures lhe funds now available  through the banks for thc credit needs of the  country would-lo thai extent be diminished, to  the serious detriment of the entire community.  Credit forJln's arrangement is due largely lo Hon.  W. T. While, who conducted lhc negotiations  wilh tlie Bank of England through Hon. George  H. Pcrlcy, as lhc representative of the Government in Loudon. 11 has been fortunate, indeed,  for Canada thai she has a finance minister of thc  experience, ability and energy of Mr. White.  The Montreal Star recommends Emperor William to confer his surplus of Iron Crosses on thc  Liberal Senators who did so effective work for  Germany. To lhis list might be added thc editor  of lhc Toronto Globe, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Dr.  Michael Clark and others, who refused lo believe  in thc "emergency."  GETTING THE BUSINESS  Thc advertising space in a newspaper is lhc  same lo lhe proprietor of lhc newspaper as thc  slock of goods on lhc shelves in thc merchandise  store is to the proprietor of the blore. il i������������������ the  newspaper's slock and trade. Therefore, if. the  newspaper is to keep ils head above water, il cannot afford lo sit down and wait for customers. JI  must sell lhe goods il. Has to oil'cr��������������������������� ad\cr!.ising  space. And if Ihe local merchant does nol buy  space in the home paper, others will, and in so  doing will offer inducements to lhc home merchant's customers that will attract them to thc  department stores in thc large cities or in neighboring towns. And lhc few dollars lhc home  merchant saves in refusing to advertise and thus  hold thc interest and the business of thc home  people arc soon lost to him and thc home lown by  being drawn elsewhere. The wise merchant sees  this. And lhc wise merchant knows that in times  like thc present one must get after thc business  and keep after it if it is to be had and retained.

If the Globe had  been able to lind more than one such a man to  thank God for in the Liberal parly il would have  mentioned his name.

Joseph  Martin, who recently left the Liberal party in  Great Britain because he could not get along wilh  Premier Asquilh, announced lhal he would reenter federal politics, and, a I the request of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, would take a prominent part in  lhc Western campaign, thc policy of lhc Liberal  parly being one of free trade.- So far as one can  learn, il would be almost thc same as thai proposed in the tariff plank of the celebrated Ottawa  platform on which lhc Liberals went to lhc country in 1896,  As the initial step, Hon. Joseph Martin proposes to run for the ollice of mayor bf Vancouver.  It will be interesting to gel Mr. Martin back into  western politics, for, no matter how far he is in  the wrong politically, he is a sensational fighter,  and makes iliFTir^fly^lieli~hc7gct^  business. Mr. Martin belongs lo a former generation in Canadian politics. He is living in the  past���������������������������is a "back-number,"���������������������������a "has-been." He  has announced a policy which, while it may have  been adapted to conditions that existed in thc  West during the early 90's, would be much out  of-place today.

An investigation shows that there is no material difference  in the number of employed than in former years,  and in many cases there has been a marked increase in the amount of the pay roll. Several industries have been greatly stimulated. The milling industry, paper mills, saddlery and harness  manufacturers were never so busy as at present.  In many large factories double time is being  worked to furnish the articles required by thc increase in trade.  Thc British Government, and also the French  and Russian Governments, are placing orders for  war supplies amounting to millions. For our  own troops many millions must be spent to properly equip them. All these orders have been  placed, and the various industries have been  greatly benefitted. Most of the agricultural implement concerns have reopened, and are preparing to supply the certain demands for next year's  trade.

"On the eve of the outbreak of

"It must be remembered that
within the past ten years Great Britain has reduced the deadweight
amount of her national debt by the
sum of" ������111,000,000; and the
amount outstanding on April 1st
.last was ������051,000,000, a comparatively small amount for a rich and
populous counlry like Great
Commenting on this phase of the
question, the London Economist
says: "Luxury and saving can pay
Great Britain's  part  of  this  war.
"Sir R. Giflen estimated lhe direct expenses of the 1870 war at
������30,000,000 a month for both nations. Does anyone suppose that
twice that sum will even approach
the direct costs of the present war
for these two countries?t
"But, even if it be admitted that
this war will require for its direct
maintenance a larger proportion of
thc whole resources of the combat-
antnations thaii any previous war,
this'in itself does' not, of course,
involve an'earlier exhaustion. For.
a nation makes
whole    economic
with its' surplus beyond the funds
required for .the subsistence of the
non-combatant population' and for
the maintenance of such productive
processes*as are essential both for
lhis������*subsistence and for the* sup-
'portof the fighting force.'
'Now, as nations grow wealthier
pier head of'their, population, the
proportion of this surplus to the
subsistence fund increases, so that
it becomes economically feasible to
support without complete exhaustion'hot merely an absolutely but a
relatively more expensive war.
"One cannot, therefore, assume
offhandi that war which,, under
present conditions, may be costing
three hundred millions per annum
to this country, ������and perhaps more
than twice as much' to Germany
and France, must necessarily bring
exhaustion, even if it be continued
for several years.
"So far as Great Britain is con-
ccrned, 'she..evidcntly could, defray
all our farmers believe lhis lo be
true, but, as it is not, the fallacy
may as well be disposed of-at once.
Thus, comparing the leading foodstuffs produced Jn the ,two countries, we gel the following figures,0

out of her current income, were it
necessary to her existence, the
whole expense here ascribed to her.
That is to say, she could divert to
the production of foods and other
stores and muni lions a sum amounting, .say, to one-seventh of her
total income, the portion at present
consumed by ils owners upon luxuries or olher unneccssaries, or
saved and put into fresh capital.
"Much dislocation of industry
and a temporary stoppage of all
processes of industrial improvement would be involved, hut this
sacrifice of luxury and saving
would yield the necessary revenue
for lhc war."
Prof. James Long, in the London
Daily Mail, disabuses the minds of
Britishers who count upon the
early defeat of Germany through
her inability to hold out because of
a food shortage. He declares that
il would be impossible to starve
the Germans into submission.
"It has been repeatedly claimed,"
says he, "that one of the main
causes of Germany's inability to
continue to fight will be the shortage of foofd. It is, therefore, worth
while to consider how far there is
any truth in the .suggestion���������indeed
how far she i.s self-supporting. In
1911 the estimated population of the
German Empire was 65,429,000, or
20,000,000 more than that of the
