LIFE OF SERVICE ENDED  Enclerby was deeply stirred this  week by the death of Mrs. J. E.  Crane, one of thc city's oldest musicians and most loving friends.  There was something particularly  sad. in the going of this noble,"  helpful woman. For a. few -days  following the death of her. mother,  Mrs.'Parker, two weeks previous,  Mrs. Crane showed remarkable fortitude. She had the spirit, but not  the physical strength to bear up,under the load and after the first few  days?there "was"a perceptible weakening of the body. All that medical skill and loving hands cpuld do  availedr:ndthing,.and,yr shortly, before  4 o'clock Saturday1 afternoon she  closed her eycscin the last long  sleep. 7 -: '��������������������������� *���������������������������������������������������������������������������������*>.'-"''���������������������������-'" ='*���������������������������"-*' ' "��������������������������� -  She was buried from the Presbyterian, Church; where for many  years she served/so.faithfully at the:  organ.

At this  meeting the| important question of  retaining the 'Service's of' Miss Davies came dp, also the question of  building. Mr.S.

Special measures could be undertaken at some future time, when  conditions'have improved, for replacing what is borrowed from thc  sinking fund.

LECTURE ON AGRICULTURE  BIS  TYPE OF ZEPPELIN WHICH RAIDED ENGLAND  Mr. W. C. Jackson was in Enderby Wednesday afternoon lo arrange  for a meeting here of Ihe Dominion  Government lecturers on agriculture, and lhc possibilities of the  future, particularly as ihe result of  the greatly increased demand for  farm products owing lo the European war. Thc meeting will be  held in K. of P. Hall, on Ihe aTler-  noon of Thursday, Feb. 25th, from  2 to -I p. m. The speakers will be  Prof. W. T. McDonald, on live  stock and where and how lo dispose of il, and Mr. P. H. Moore, on  agriculture and where to find a  market for agricultural products.  It is intended to hold this meeting  under Ihe auspices of the Farmer's  Institute, and every farmer in the  district i.s urged to-attend, as very  valuable information will be given  by the speakers as to whal Ihe Government is doing to encourage and  to promote the agricultural industry  and at the same time assist the  Motherland by providing agricultural products. THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, February 11, 1915  not only adding 80,000 new soldiers a month to  her forces in the field, but her navy is costing a  steadily increasing amount. The current official  estimate of Lloyd George, chancellor of the exchequer, is $45,500,000 a week.  Belgium, Servia, Roumania, Greece ancl Holland are all borrowing from England. Italy has  already issued a war loan of '$200,000,000 although she is not at war; the Dutch a loan of  $110,000,000; Canada a war loan of $100,000,000,  ancl a second for the same amount has been announced from Ottawa.  IL will hc seen from these figures that modern  war is nol merely a question, of men, it is a question of war cliest. And no nation has a larger war  chest lhan Great Britain.  Pulling these figures together, official and unofficial,'it is certain that to date lhe war bills actually paid have averaged at least $1,000,000,000  a month. And they arc mounting up at the rale  of $48,000,000 a day, approximately, or $2,000,000  an hour, day and night, Sundays and holidays.

FEBRUARY 11, 1915  THE GOOD AND THE BAD  There arc two kinds of religion, good and bad.  The religion of kindness, good cheer, helpfulness  and useful effort is good. But any form of religion lhat. incorporates a belief in miracles and  other barbaric superstitions as a necessity to salvation, is not only bad, but very bad.  Belief in superstition makes no man kinder*  gentler, more useful lo himself or society. Hc can  have all thc virtues without the fetich, and he may  have the fetich and all the vices besides.  It is remembered when  B. Fay Mils was in  his prime of service in Los Angeles, Cal.   He had  separated himself from "church" activities and  the pulpit, and was trying to Jive a simple life of  helpfulness amongst his followers.   He was not in  any way interfering wilh the established church  work, bul preferred to do his work outside of and  independent of institutional systems. And because  hc was so disposed, hc. was ostracised by such  eminent divines as Rev. Dr. Mclntyrc, Rev. Chapman and Rev. Torry.   B. Fay Mills, according to  Dr. Mclntyrc, had all thc virtues���������������������������hc was for-'  giving, kind, gen lie, modest, helpful.   Bul B. Fay  Mills  abandoned   lhc  fetich,   hence   these  good  M*)rlhodox=^inini.slci's,===J\ldnLy-i:c,^_Chapjuaii==.au.cl.  Torrcy, called upon lhe public lo pray for B. Fay  Mills.   Mills had all the virtues when he believed  in the fetich, and when he disavowed the fetich he  still had lhe virtus, and in a degree he never before  had.   Kven tlie reverend gentlemen opposing him  admitted this, but still, Ihey declared, he was forever "lost."   Whal these gentlemen really meant  when they asked the people lo pray for Mills was  Ihaf.ljKw-^hould ask-God to make Mills to be like  Ihem. "BuTTGo711[lidh'~lTu^^  There are good people lhc world oyer very  much like the reverend gentlemen menlioned  above, in lhal they are continually asking God to  make their neighbors-lo be like they are. And lhe  way they address lhc Almighty reveals that their  reverence for him springs oul of lhe supposition  lhal lie is very much like themselves.  Germany has given notice that she will lake  every means known in warfare to effectually stop  all shipping along thc coast of France, and already  submarines have started the sinking of merchantmen along the coast of England. This new tack  of lhc Germans has not caused any uneasiness in  England or in France. Britain holds lhat a blockade lo be valid must be effective, and experts, in  thc Old Country do not sec how Germany can  make good her threat, since thc ships of thc  Kaiser are locked up in her harbors, ancl cannot  make an effective raid upon any place within  striking distance.  II is recalled lhal this is not thc first lime such  a threat has been made against Britain. Napoleon  over a century ago issued his Berlin decree forbidding trade with Britain. Its only effect was to  alienate neutral nations, and men say this will be  thc effect now. They declare lhe proclamation is  a bluff and a somewhat stupid bluff. One thing is  certain, there can be no effective blockade so long  as lhe British licet is master of the situation ancl  remains unwhipped.

Wc haven't anything against calendar advertising. It may be good enough in its way, but it is  thc most expensive advertising a business man  can indulge in for the returns it gives. Any man  can realize this: Thc name on a pretty card  hung upon the kitchen wall or behind thc door  means nothing as a '-'business getter." It is really  an expense lhat most business houses are now reducing lo a whisper. Thc cost of such "advertising" is about double what would be paid to the  home paper for fifly-two insertions of a five-inch  ad in ils columns. Any merchant that could not  sav something in fifty-two messages to the readers  ofhis home paper that would bring him one-hundred fold more business lhan his name stuck on  a calendar, is not in business today, in this or any  other man's town.  ^.; ; ENDERBY BRANCH  Committee: Aid.

Thc objects of this organization are: "To collect, administer and  distribute a fund for the assistance, in case of need, of thc wives,  children and other dependent relatives of ollicers and men, residents of  Canada, who during lhe present war, may he on active service with  thc naval and military forces of the British Empire and Great Britain's  allies." Thus, those who will benefit by thc Fund are the dependents, not only of Canadian volunteers and regulars, but also of British  army and navy reservists, and of French, Belgian, Servian, Russian  and Japanese reservists who have joined thc colors and left dependent relatives in Canada; these soldiers are fighting side by side for a  common cause, and their families are entitled to equal consideration.  Under the direction of the central organization at Ottawa, and  making allowance for differences in the cost of living, the scale of  distribution to those entitled to assistance will be approximately the  same throughout Canada.

SKALING, B. A.  Barrister, Solicitor,  Notary Public.  Money to Loan  Bell Blk. Enderby, B.C.  Last week thc affairs of the defunct   Dominion   Trust   Company  and   the   Provincial   Government's  identification therewith and measurable responsibility for, furnished  the motif for the big scenes in the  local Parliament, Attorney-General  Bowser filling the stellar part and  unquestionably adding to the number of his admirers by the vigor  and thc logic of his defence of the  Government  and  his  own  official  course.     The   address   was   probably   the    best   contribution    Mr.  Bowser  as   yet  has  made   to   thc  history of parliamentary debate in  British   Columbia.     The   presentation of the Government's measure  providing for the relief of deserving debtors under certain 'defined  circumstances, and thc submission  kof legislation for the inauguration  of industrial activities utilizing the  kelp   supply   of  British   Columbia  coastal waters, were the other- outstanding features of parliament activity during the week just closed.  During'" thc week now opening the  redistribution measure will be con-  sidered in caucus during-the opening  days,   being  laid   before   the  House on Thursday or Friday, and,  it is expected, going through with  comparatively little debate and few  material   changes.    The   estimates  are  not looked  for until the first  week, in March, their presentation  and ".adoption   heralding  prorogation.'  It is by ho means easy to condense inlo" the'meagre limits of a  few newspaper paragraphs the  solid matter.qf a_carefullyprepared  analytical resume bf Government  action and policy extending over a  period of years and requiring several hours for its delivery even by  rapid-fire Miv; Bowser.' The kernel  of-/-public interest in-the .address  was,.however, tlie announcement of  the Government's course under the  conditions which have developed  out of the- Dominion Trust Company's "failure, whic^l announcc--  ment may* be briefly summarized:.  Thc Provincial Government will  exert every effort to give depositors of the defunct Dominion Trust  Company the same legal status as  all creditors, and to this end has retained Mr. E. P. Davis, K. C, who  is instructed to press his case to the  last court of resort.  Pending a decision in litigation  involving the forfeiture to thc Government of bonds in the amount of  $250,000 deposited by guarantee  companies on behalf of the Dominion Trust Company, the Government will, during the present session, place in the estimates a similar sum, which will become immediately available for thc aid of all  -such-crcditors-as-may-be-dcclared-  beneficiaries.  The term "moratorium" is scarcely a  correct one  to  apply  to  the  bill    introduced    respecting    contracts relating to land. It may more  aptly be defined   as   a   provision  vesting in the Lieutenant-Governor  in   Council   power to   extend the  equitable jurisdiction of the courts  if occasion shall render such course  necessary.    In the enforcement of  the common law, the court of chancery at an early date in the history  of English jurisprudence assumed  the power to protect people from  thc   consequences  of  fraud,   accident  or  mistake.    The  courts  of  this Province now exercise all the  powers of the court of chancery,  and it is proposed that the Government may, if,events seem to render  such- a   course   necessary,   extend  this equitable jurisdiction  to  certain     contracts    affecting    lands,  where   their   fulfilment   has   been  rendered  impossible- for the  time  being  by   reason,   directly   or  indirectly,  of the war.    Many  contracts stipulate that they shall not  be  of force  where "the  condition  that creates a liability arises from  an act of the King's enemies, and  the proposed measure is really but  an extension of the principle underlying such cases  and  the^ general  jurisdiction of the courts'.to grant  relief where equity demands that  il should be given.'  _9  ButterWrapper  Parchment  Has made three jumps in price since the beginning of the war, and the price' is still on  the up-grade.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, February 11, 1915  What Prominent People of Various  Minds Think About the Great War  The European war began six  months ago. It has already lasted  longer lhan any war on the continent of Europe in more than a century. It has already cost nearly  two million lives ancl at least six  billion dollars of treasure, not  counting Ihe destruction of property ancl  homes.  Britain has lost more than one  hundred thousand men, ancl, for  lhc first lime in 200 years, the "War  Oflice has asked of Parliament a  blank cheque to cover the cost of  lhe war.  Thc International News Service  has endeavored to obtain by cable  from thc best informed military  ancl civil authorities, from military  experts, eminent editors ancl economists of all lhe belligerent nations  estimates of thc situation today and  lhc prospects for the future���������������������������especially whether there is any  prospect of early peace.  Merc are some of the expressions  of prominent  people on  all sides:  Countess  of "Warwick:   "I   can't  help   anybody   to  cheer  or shout.  My   patriotism   led   me   to   rejoice  when my nearest and dearest went  to   the   lighting   line.     Our   army  holds   the   great   majority   of   my  men relatives and friends, but my  soul sickens of thc intolerable carnage;  it affronts heaven and defiles  the  earth.    I  say that if  a  man-  made  government  can  accomplish  nothing better  lhan  this, it stands  condemned   in   the   sight   of   the  world.    The rule of man can only  be changed in two ways, either by  the rule of woman or to the rule by  man   ancl   woman   together.     The  first is impossible;  the second inevitable."  "Wilhelm, Crown Prince of Germany: "Every single German and  Austrian is quite certain that wc  will come oul on top, and will give  his lasl drop of blood to this end."  Congressman Bartholdt, "Washington, D.C.: "What they (Germany  and Austria) already have accomplished against superior numbers  augurs well for their ultimate suc-  . cess. Personally, I believe they  will triumph." *���������������������������  Congressman  Vollmer,  Washington, D.C.: "1 believe the war will  either end in a stale mate or the  Germans will solve the difficulty of  getting across the channel and delivering an effective blow at England, in which case the war would  end speedily.    I sec no chance of  lhc   Allies   conquering'  Germany."  Admiral   Sir   Cyphrian   Bridge:  "The   enemy's   naval   forces   have  been   diminished   more   absolutely  and    very   much   more   relatively  than ours have been.   All this offers  an   encouraging   prospect   for   the  future."  General  Berlhaut:   "It will   con-  ^tinucMo-bc^iHrcnch^wamintihGer-^*:*-  many i.s forced to yield on account  of shortness of munitions, food and  money."  Yves Guyot: "Germany was unprepared for Ihe war in the sense  lhat she had laid in supplies for  only two months of hostilities. The  end of the war may come in June,  ^wiili^ tl^  gian armies crossing the Rhine and  lhe Russian army crossing the  Wartha."  Anthony Hope: "Long and arduous as Ihe struggle will be, success  will incline lo the arms of lhe Allies  on land, provided Ihcy are able lo  maintain the command of the sea."  J. Si. Loc Strachcy, editor London Spectator: "We shall .win because our cause is jusl and because  we know lhe war is no picnic, but  a great act of national self-sacrifice  ���������������������������because we realize thai if we lose  il will be for us Ihe end."  General Sir Alfred Turner: "Germany i.s beaten, but not yet finished.  The situation i.s altogether favorable."  Sir Conan Doyle: "The first six  months have been occupied in establishing an equilibrium. I think  Ihe equilibrium, now gradually or  possibly swiftly, will change fo a  German recoil, and thai the victory  of the Allies i.s absolutely assured."  Dumba, Auslro-Hungarian Ambassador lo the United Slates: "I  am perfectly .satisfied with the situation  in  Ihe western  and eastern  battlefleds, ancl absolutely confident with regard to the final success of our arms. Unfortunately,  there is no prospect of an early  peace."  Lord Northcliffe: "In my humble  opinion Germany's army has  about as much chance of gelling to  Calais as il has of getting to Chicago. II will be a long, long way,  but the Germans .were beaten as far  back as August last."  Hon. Harry Lawson, editor London Daily Telegraph: "Taking all  the factors into consideration it is  impossible to see how Germany can  escape thc fates, which, as in ancient tragedy, seem to be closing  in on her headlong violence."  G. Bernard Shaw: "Il seems  possible that unless thc socalled  neutral nations or possibly thc  Pope (by a bill of excommunication of all combatants .until they  come to Conossa and settle their  diflicultics civilly), shall insist on  the war stopping, the year 2015  may sec your papers hopefully announcing that the left bank of thc  Yser is almost clear of Germans and  lhe German papers declaring that  the fifty metres of trenches lost  day before yesterday in the Sois-  sons district have been heroically  recaptured."  Emil Loubcl, former President of  France: "There is not a shadow of  doubt that the Allies are on the  road to victoiy."  Nelson, Slocan and Rossland are  all given a portion of. Ymir, and  Kaslo gets that portion of Ymir east  of Kootenay river and a portion  west of the river.  Similkameen, which loses the  Kettle Valley to Greenwood, gains  from the Okanagan that portion cut  off by a line cast ancl west at Trout  Creek, just south of Summerland,  ancl which includes the town of  Penticton.  Okanagan, which loses the portion given to Similkameen, gains  Salmon Arm and Sicamous and the  riding i.s divided at thc Coldstream  river into north and south Okanagan.  LOST HIS BALANCE  REDISTRIBUTION REPORT  The report of the Royal Commission on Redistribution was read  in thc Provincial House on Monday.  Forty-seven members should  comprise the next House, according  to Judge Morrison's schedule, while  Judge Macdonald makes the count  forty-five. The present House has  forty-two members.  The proposed changes in existing  ridings arc: Cariboo is divided on  parallel 53, into north and south  districts, and in addition loses the  area tributary to the headwaters  of Canoe and Thompson rivers,  which is added to Kamloops.  Cranbrook loses Fort Steel district to the Fernic electoral district.  Delta loses Annacis arid Patrick  Islands which are added to New  Westminster city.  Dewdney gains the portion of  Kent municipality, Agassiz, now in  Yale riding.  Greenwood gains thc portion of  Greenwood mining division now in  Similkameen, which is the Kettle  river valley.

While the  manager was al lunch, a tall, powerful man, smooth-shaven and wild-  eyed, walked into the bank and  asked to see him. He was told thai  lhe manager was al his home.  "Look out! Don't touch me; I  carry a gun!" he said excitedly to  Mr. Knight the obliging teller, and  out of the bank hc stalked.  He went direct to the manager's  home. There he told a wild story  of having captured the man who  robbed the bank at New Westminster, and wanted the manager to  rustic up a lot of guns and men and  accompany him lo the rendezvous  of the bank robber. He was dismissed with the assurance that the  manager would follow him at once.  Half a block from the manager's  residence, Mr. White saw the man  shooting down imaginary bank robbers with his fingers. Constable  Bailey was notified and took the  man in charge. It proved to be  Ed. Torrey, of Hubel. He was put  in thc City Hall for safe-keeping,  unlil the Provincial authorities at  Vernon could be communicated  wilh. That night Torrey amused  himself by telling wild stories to  the walls of his cell. Sometime  after midnight Constable Bailey  heard him tearing things to pieces  in his cell, and went alone to the  cell lo quiet the man. No sooner  had the Constable unlocked thc cell  door than out sprang Torrey, hat-  less and coatlcss, and brushing the  Constable aside, he lunged out of  lhc building and was iost in the  darkness.  Warning was sent to all points  reached by telephone, ancl the following morning Torrey was picked  up by the freight train crew at  Grindrod, and taken to Sicamous ih  time to catch the morning passenger train southbound. He was met  on arriving al Enderby by Provincial Constable' Patten and accompanied to Vernon.
