AUGUST 12, 1915  CANADIAN PATRIOTIC FUND  It  tails  to  thc Weekly Chronicle,  the camp  bulletin of the 47th Overseas Battalion C. E. F.,  at Vernon,  lo direct attention to the. wrongful  handling of thc Canadian Patriotic Fund at that  point.    It is a good omen.    It will lead to the  showing up of other matters which. have been  whispered on thc streets for many weeks, and  which, for thc good of the cause of patriotism  should be handled rough-shod by the powers that  bc.   Where there is so much smoke there must be  some fire.   l<lo doubt the Militia Department will  if it has not already,.take the matter, in. hand. .. *  "In an interview with Mr. E. D. Watts, chairman  of  the   Vernon   relief   committee of  the  Patriotic Fund, a state of affairs was revealed  that wc do not think is generally known to those  big-hearted people who have subscribed so generously, that the children of those men leaving  for the Old Counlry should not suffer," says the  Chronicle.   "This is a difficult matter for an enr  listed man for overseas service to speak on, but  we have failed to find, in any paper, the facts of  how this fund is being administered, simply, wc  arc sure, because the papers of thc various cities  arc not aware of how the money is being distributed.   During these times, it is a pretty easy job  for a .young. j*i*_jrrigd._he_althy _m,a_n_Jo__cnlis_t_for  and leave the older married  H. E. Wells, the famous British novelist and  sociological writer, last week published these  views on what he considers will bc Europe's fate  as the result of the great war, and how America  will share in the spoils of war:  I will- assume the war regime will continue for  Iiiiropc for at least another year. Neither side will or  can give in until decisively beaten and there is far less  appearance now of any such decisive ending than  there was a year ago, when the Germans marched  upon Paris and had Calais for the taking.    n  We have to clear our minds of the idea of possible  internal collapse on either side. I will assume, too,  lhat whatever happens thc United States will remain  morally above the possibility of participation in the  struggle.  One thing follows upon these assumptions. Almost  inevitably the United Stales will take the financial  scepter out of the hands bf London and become the  country of rich men, a usurer country, to which all  other countries will be in debt.  An exhausted Germany will face peace with no gold  and an enormously depreciated paper currency.  France arid Great Britain will be in a scarcely better  position. For the necessary capital for peace recuperation, just as much as for war supplies, they will look  to America. England will cease to- be the fat land  of the world. That doubtful privilege of fatness will  pass across the Atlantic. /  That does not mean that American common man  will be any better ,pff than at present. The rise in  prices probably will make him practically worse oif,  but the American plutocrat will become the financial  master of the world.  One of the practical consequences of the world's  debt to America will be that imports will rise. There  will be more prosperity and less stimulus in American  life. The United States will in fact tend toward prewar conditions of Great Britain, and in many ways  take her place in the world's affairs.

OKANAGAN SAW MILLS, Ltd. Enderby  THE A B C OF CO-OPERATION  Are you trying to get your-neighbors to buy  their fertilizers, feedstuff's, etc., co-operatively?  This, according to an authority on co-operation,  is "the A G B.of co-operation," but the economies  so. effected have, of ten been eye openers to farmers who have previously sat in darkness. Even  if you are not a member of the Growers' Association���������������������������though, this is the institution that should be  receiving your support, you can still get your  neighbors to join with you and make a bulk  order at considerable saving to all concerned, but  you can work more easily and effectively through  the local organization.  On this subject, Clarence Poc, in his book  "How Farmers Co-Operate and Double Profits,"  says: "To make my position. perfectly clear, I  think I ought to repeat that I believe. every  farmer should .participate in co-operative buying,  but I should not say at all that every farmer  should participate in co-operative merchandising.  Ordering together certain definite supplies you  need in farm work���������������������������this may bc a very different  proposition from buying a miscellaneous assortment of goods and hiring a man to sell them,to  a miscellaneous body of people. This policy may  or may not be a desirable form of co-operation.  But in any case farmers should join together to  buy their fertilizers, feedstuff's and machinery,  whether bought through a local merchant or  from a distant dealer."    A name that stands for tlie best in hotel service  King Edwardftotfei, &J^U*P������������������Y Enderby  guard  won  nomc  man to find for himself, and wc sincerely hope  the day will speedily come, when the single man  and young married man will bc barred from  home service, and thc married men of from 45 up  selected. Hundreds of men arc wanted in the  prairies just now for farming. Why not send  the lusty, young, enlisted home guards? They  will hest defend their country by seeing that the  bread basket is in no way depleted."  From Mr. Watts, chairman of the relief committee, tlie editor of the Weekly Chronicle  gleaned lhc Following information: 'That in  Vernon alone ���������������������������!() per cent of llie money subscribed to Ihe Patriotic Fund was being paid to  families of those men enlisted for Home Defense,  lhat is lo say. that men remaining in Canada arc  placing in jeopardy a fund subscribed to by generous-hearted Canadians throughout lhe Dominion, for the aiding of families of those men who  have left or arc leaving these shores for the  great battlefield of Europe.,  "It is a dillicull subject for a soldier to handle,  but the excuse is simply, that it is our duty to  look after and plead'for those who are loo far  awav to plead for themselves.  light  A Home Product  It stops the leaks in hay-feeding and turns loss into profit.  Improves the stock and increases production.  _������������������  ALFALFA PRODUCTS. LIMITED  F. R. Prince, Manager  FARMERS ARE MANUFACTURERS  Speaking on the question of co-operative  buying by farmers, Mr. George W. Russell, of thc  Irish Agricultural Organization Society has well  said: "You must bear in mind,.what is too often  forgotten, that farmers arc manufacturers, and  as such arc entitled to buy thc raw materials for  their industry at wholesale 'prices". Every other-  kind of manufacturer in the world gets trade  terms when he buys. Those who buy, not to  consume but to-manufacture again, get their requirements at wholesale terms in every country  in thc world. If a publisher of books is  approached by a bookseller he gives that bookseller trade terms, because hc buys again. If you  or I as private individuals want one of those  books we pay the full retail price. Even the  cobbler, the carpenter, the solitary artist, get  trade terms. The farmer, who is as much a manufacturer as the shipbuilder, or the factory proprietor, is as much entitled to trade terms when  he buys the raw materials for his industry. His  seeds, fertilizers, plows, implements, cake, feeding stuff's, are the raw materials of his industry,  "Another factor lhat has come io light, which which he uses to produce wheat, beef, mutton,  on the face of it is most distressing, and that is I pork or whatever else; and, in my opinion, there  that one family lias received from the Govern-1should be no differentiation between thc farmer  ment and Patriotic Fund about $160, and now i when he buys and any other kind of manufac-  after all this the wife has withdrawn her consent.

LUMBER IN BIG DEMAND  : Cessation of the war in Europe  will mean an enormous demand for  the lumber products of the Northwest and will make necessary  greatly increased shipping facilities  if utter paralyzation of the industry  is to be avoided. Assurance of  these facts was given members of  lhc Federal Trade Commission at  Seattle on Monday by Allan II.  Daughcrly,' president of thc Ocean  Lumber Company, one of lhe  heaviest exporters of lumber in  Pugcl Sound. There is al present  a demand for lumber in Europe  lhal is greater than can he supplied  with the existing transportation  facilities, Mr. Daughcrly said, and-  exporters could double the lumber  sales abroad if ships could be  found to carry Ihe cargoes. He  suggested lo the commission lhal  lhe big problem in lhe development  of foreign trade was the building  up of a merchant marine adequate  to the needs of American shipping.  CONSTRUCTIVE WORK  During the discussion at the  midsummer quarterly meeting of  the Western Pine Manufacturers'  Association at Spokane, Wash., Mr.  McGoldrich** of the McGoldrich  Lumber Company, told of attending  a meeting of the Mountain Lumber  Manufacturers in Calgary, recently.  He said the dill'erence between the  attitude of lhc U. S. Government  and that of Canada toward the  lumber industry was marked.
