The views of thc -Prohibitionist and  those of the anti-Prohibitionist, each have been  echoed and re-echoed up and down the land in  one form or-.'another, for. years, and arc too well  known to be read with interest. But here is a  thought given expression to by George Duncan,  in a letter in the Vancouver Province, which is  unusually noteworthy, and seems to get right at  the kernel of":th������������������ proposition: "To regulate,"  says he, "is the duty of every free state; to.prohibit, where no crime is involved*; is to draw  closer the bonds of freedom and to lay an axe at  the very root of democracy itself; for where  democracy loses its love of liberty and uses the  methods, of despotism, it has established the  forces which will inevitably work its own ruin."  * 'In* this connection ;a"'dispatclcV 7^'7j7  from London.undcrdalc of Oct. 26,yVl-'":V"������������������.<  says:" "Genriaiiyis'weakening'"'At'VVW  last the Kaiser sees the-inevitable". fr"  end of'tlie world war.''-.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1915  VEGETABLE EVAPORATING PLANTS  There is in course of erection at Armstrong an  evaporating plant'wliich will employ 50 men and  100'women and girls for eight or nine months in  the year. The.plant is one of Ihrcc which Thc  Graham Co., Ltd., will operate in the Okanagan.  The. other Iwo are located at' Vernon and  -Kelowna. ��������������������������� ��������������������������� -  It is expected thai.lhe Armstrong plant will be  in operation in three wcks, or thereabouts. ��������������������������� In  order to find out how much labor is available in  thc city and district lo work in lhc evaporating  plant, applications arc already being called for  from'50 men and 100 women and girls, and the  hope is expressed lhat as many local people as  possible will, avail themselves of the opportunity  io earn some money lhc coming winter, and thus  ' lo keep at home the money to be spent in the  operation of thc plant. Applications arc also being called for for thc supplying of 1200 cords of  fir, green and dry,'in 2-foot and 4-foot lengths.  Wc understand thc average price paid for vegetables to thc producer by thc evaporating plant is  $8 per ton. While this" figure is low, compared  wilh the prices which have been demanded in the  past, it i.s certain thai the price allows a living  profit to the producer, and, coming at this period,  when vegetables-.arc a glut, on the market and  thousands ol' sacks' have been harvested in excess  of market demands, the cstahlislnuenfVofTlicsc  planls~will.be a God-send to lhc Valley. And,  while wages paid in plants of this character are  not usually high, thc employment of "150 men,  women and girls, even at small wages, will bring  prosperous conditions lo lhc community.'  These evaporation plants are-to. be permanent  institutions. They were lhc ono^ thing needed, to  put the vegetable industry in the Okanagan on a  ���������������������������sal'ersou ncl- basis.--;Nat urn lly���������������������������the-growers-w-hose-  flelds are situated closest to the plants will reap  'lhe greatest benefit, for llie hauling charges will  he so .much lower. II will be dilllcult for, say  growers of 1-jiderby, lo compete wilh growers in  close proximity lo the plant, still these conditions  will remedy themselves as time goes on, and il  makes certain lhat there need be no 'loss il* our  growers will get extensively inlo lhe "vegetable  growing business. Other plants will follow those  now established, and these will be certain to go  lo llie centres where the vegetables are most plentiful. To share in lhe prosperity thai must'follow lhe establishment of these plants, llie grojvers  of Enderby district must produce the stuff required for evaporation.  people there is a purpose filled wilh peril, which  America is not overlooking, but, on the contrary,  is taking every step to prepare for:  "It wond be lunacy to think that we should want to  appear with troops in'Europe.' English friendship Is  lo be of short duration.   Having attained her purposes,  she will quickly discard all who may have gone to her  aid.   We have the same rights as England.   In looking  back over the.past,..wc see with regret that we were  forced   to  the sad  necessity  of siding with Tier  on  account of our treaty wilh her.   It is beyond all doubt  lhat a treaty with Germany would have been more advantageous and of a much wider scope in the future  for .lapair!   Within a short time grave complications*  arc  going  lo  present  themselves.    We will  have  to  demonstrate ..that we are a power of tlie firs I order, one  which, is of the same, height..as'England-'and America,  and that in so far as 'power' is concerned,'we need  have no fear of those two peoples'.   Wc are, and will  bc for all time, the masters of lhe seas of Asia.   Our  strength will permit thc realization of the desires, so  long cherished, of establishing ourselves on the western coasts of America.    We are going to gather great  quantities of artillery and ammunition. Today America  is  supplying  thc  Allies  with  arms  ancl  ammunition  against Germany;  perhaps the day may come when  Germany will supply us against the United States and  Australia.    The Germans cannot deny that we have  Always treated their prisoners in a gentlemanly manner.   There will not bc a single (Jerman prisoner who  can thr.ow in our face any abuse received.   We have  anticipated  the wants of those heroes, and we have  treated their children-and their ���������������������������women and old people  with great respect.     That 'which we were forced to  .undertake., against Germany will be left to be forgotten  and it may be possible to so remedy it.thai.Germany  will bc. satisfied; but the moment to discuss this point  has not yet arrived,.    *    '    *    We will appear on the  day of judgment and prove to the whole world that  we are a civilized nation-."  . While these assertions from Japanese source  may not, and should not, cause any alarm, nevertheless, thc future has in store for us much that  this extract will give us light upon.  CONFIDENCE MUST BE DEVELOPED  Confidence is a great thing. Lack of confidence  has wrecked national enterprises and sent the  pride of empires glimmering. In thc recent  financial panic following the coming of war in  Europe, the cry of the hour should have been,  "Have confidence." Our bankers should have  bccYt strong in giving this advice. But they were  not. Instead, our financial institutions were the  first to show a lack-of confidence. They showed  it in themselves when, they refused to do. what  the Dominion Government asked them to do, and  prepared for them to do. Parliament in its wisdom saw fit, shortly after the commencement of  thc war, lo authorize thc issuance of 15 per cent  of Dominion bank notes in excess of the paid up  capital of lhe banks, which'would have meant an  additional $30,000,000 to the circulating medium  of Canada���������������������������sufficient to have sustained the confidence of thc people, until lhe business of thc  Dominion could have been readjusted to meet the  new conditions thrust upon us. But thc banks  refused to put out this additional currency. On  thc contrary they at once started thc big squeeze.  This in turn brought about failures", and thc loss  of confidence between wholesaler and retailer,  and between retailer and consumer. As was said  by the Rcgina Daily Province a year ago:  "All the assistance which the Government of Canada  is endeavoring to give to the people through the  medium of the banks is being .held up- by the banks  for their own additional security.   Every business in  ���������������������������effi*nRi"g^it^  been cut off. Farmers suffer. , The security of the  wheal, which is belter than gold, is no longer taken.  Municipal governments suffer. Canada is as badly oil',  in fact, as if she were without banking facilities. The  assistance the government extended lias not reached  the people���������������������������has not passed beyond thc control of the  banks. Credit is practically non-existent, and without  credit the business fabric cannol hold together."

In hiking the position they did,  it is generally admitted lhat the banks of Canada  did more lo bring about lack of confidence than  all olher institutions combined. And they.have  insisted upon continuing their grab-all policy.  True, business still survives, in a. measure, but it  survives inspile of tlie banking policy not due to  it. Wholesalers, in most cases, have slill retained  lhe confidence lhc retailers have merited, and retailers have, in a like measure, refused to bc  stampeded by the- banks' lack of confidence  policy, while communities arc shaping their business so as lo be'independent of the banks.  Enderby is, one of those "communities. And if  there is a community on earth that should have  confidence in itself it is this district of which we  are a part. And wc must exercise that confidence  by expressing it in action. The'Northern end of  lhc Okanagan is recognized as the best for the  -small farmer and horticulturist. -The soil is thc  most fertile; it is well watered and heeds no irrigation.. It has- high lands and low lands, suitable  for every kind of farming and fruit raising. This  one and all of us know. It never has been  a question of doubt. Ancl our business-people and  agriculturists generally have proven themselves  reliable and efficient insofar as the district has  developed. There is, it is Irue, niucji yet to he  done by all of us to bring the district into its own,  in the matter of fuller growth and development,  but these things musl come gradually.  Parchment  The Dominion law against the selling "of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as the case may be���������������������������printed  on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer...,. In the first, pjace^ n_ jus .Butter __'  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  the brand of the butter on the label, the storekeepers qan readily sell the butter at 5c a pound  more than he can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, andthe butter-maker gets the  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  the merchant.  It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter  makers have on ly a cow or two; and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them that they���������������������������  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like thc idea' of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, The Press has printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter'Wraps. They are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of the maker. * However,  these wrappers fill the requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 50c a hundred in 100 or  50 lots. If you do not repuire butter wjaps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.  ���������������������������    -   $2.75  -    -    3.75  In lots of 500,  In lots of 1000,  The Walker Press  Renew for The   Press,  $2 per year -W  Thursday, October 28, 1915  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  BAKIN&POWDER  SUNSHINE SERMONS  Cheerful Guidance to a Happier.

Bitter Complaint Against City's  Method of Assessing  Editor End cry Press:  Dear Sir: In a rccenl issue of the  Press I was pleased to read a gratifying'report of.Ihe finance committee. If I remember rightly, lhis  ���������������������������is Ihe first report ever made since  lhe city's incorporation, attempting  to deal with the crying injustice of  lhe assessment' as usually made by  the cily. I consider it a great step  forward, that the present council  should be able to see the injustice  being done, now and in the past,  to the holders of farming lands  within the city limits,' and to express a desire to find a means of  remedying thc evil and lhe injustice  that is being done., -  It is a safe thing to say that at the  present time every holder of-farm  "land within the city limits is anxiously looking for a way out, either  by  selling  his  land,  or,   what  is  more  likely  to 'happen,  by  abandoning it, and leaving it to go to  waste.    Undoubtedly these owners  will do this unless relief is forthcoming.   They will get out of their  holdings by some means, and it is  therefore a matter of vital interest  to the city to keep- people on these  lands'and not to drive the few good  citizens^ away that are now struggling  with   the   problem���������������������������I  might  say,   the - impossible   problem���������������������������of  making both ends meet. - In every  oilier place where  I have looked  into the methods orVippointing an  assessor a, great effort.is made to  appoint a  suitable and competent  one, capable-"of "using,good judgement . and .  sound y sense. ' These  places^ make'an honest effort'to assess justly and evenly, and they see  that the".assessor   does   his   duty,  whereas   the '"'method ��������������������������� inaugurated  by Mayor Bell-for Enderby, advertises  for the. cheapest "'and  necessarily'the most inefficient man to be  founds with the result that no assessment" ever-.made'by the city has  been^ according to right arid-justice  as between all parties, and Lain reliably-informed is entirely illegal  and incorrect.,    ..     -  Vlt might-interest, some, of your  readers to have'recalled the original  arrangements'entered into prior to  incorporation.    They.,can then see  for themselves how far the city has  kept its word, and howy utterly, incapable" the ..men  have-beeny who  have been appointed assessors.'.  ,���������������������������_Prior to assessment, my farm was  'di*ra"."paying basis, making a small  annual sum tothe.'good-. ��������������������������� Since incorporation, "although I.have tried  e,very possible way, and made.great  efforts,  it  is . impossible   to'make  both ends meet,.for the reasons set.  forth further on in this article-.  After a great deal of discussion  it was arranged and .understood  that the Bell"block should be the  pivot for valuation of the lots con  round the brick block about $20,000  of public .money (independent of  local improvement) , have been  spent, hearing no direct revenue in  the shape of interest to the city,  only a few hundreds have been  spent in thc rural district-*" in th'e  same time.  Speaking of my own personal experience: at lhe first assessment my  property was Gut up,inlo about a  dozen parcels by the assessor; no  legal, description was given or attempted, and the Ihen mayor ruled  that this was .the correct method.  Prior to incorporation my yearly  assessment  was   about  $30.     The  first,   year    after    incorporation   I  thing it was about $80.   1 could gel  no hearing or-appeal.   I then managed to sell from lime to lime small  parcels of land, hoping to keep my  assessment   down,   to   find    thai,  every  lime  the  price of  lhe-sold  portion was promptly added to my  , previous  assessment.    The   failure  to legally describe my properly was  continued and aggravated by every  year carefully altering lhc numbers  on the assessment roll so that it was  practically  impossible  for  anyone  to follow the assessment consecutively, or lo identify other than by  guessing   any   particular   so-called  parcel.   This brings us" to the years  1911 and 1012.   Finding I could no  longer meet the taxes as levied under this system, I decided-very reluctantly to sell my old home site,  that  was much' the best piece-of  properly belonging to me, in order  definitely and once for all, lower  my   assessment.     Mr.   Editor,   imr  agine my disappointment and disgust to find that during my absence  my  assessment  riot  only  was  not  lowered  biit  that  .the   assessment  was increased in that one year from  $6,160 with improvements valucd_at  $1,000, to the sum of $15,225 with  improvements- valued  at $600,  including the assessment in each case  levied upon the parcel sold.   In the  same year' of 4912 the assessment  ^C. SKALING, B. A.  Barrister, Solicitor,  Notary Public. %  -----   |Money to Loan   -.  Beli: Blk.

HENDRICKSON, Proprietor  Next the Fulton Block, Enderby  stituling the townsite; and that- iiU  other lots should be assessed from'  lhat.block according to distance,  and-location; in' other words, once  having agreed upon a price for that  particular block, .and thereafter, it  being found advisable to" raise'its  valuation, all other blocks were to  go up in value pro rata. The town-  site ceased south at Mr. Barnes' line,  west along my line, north at Knight  street. Other, additions-, if made,  were to be considered on their mer-  itst.r__To-=arrivc^aU=an=_1assessment_  value for the suburban and farm  lands, it was agreed that the assessment, should come from the outside  values, and bc valued inwards until  the valuation struck the' townsite  lines: in other avords, if the Government, assessment'on farms adjoining mine were $20 per acre, my  farm would be $20 per acre, except  where it struck the townsite lines  where jt struck a street line, or was  manifestly nearer the railway,  when that portion would necessarily be made to carry an increased /Value. That arrangement  was a fair and just one, and if it  had been carried out honestly the  citv would not bc in the dilemma  il 'is today, because it would not  have submitted to an excessive'valuation, which valuation, Mr. Edilor,  was wholly fictitious; neither  would the farm holders at present  be suffering from an intolerable act  of injustice, against which, unless  the city acts justly of its free will,  Ihey have po remedy except by a  long and costly lawsuit against the  city. ,     V  To every city there-is.a city district  proper (town lots), an urban and  intertirban and rural district. The  assessment in" these varies according to" the qualification and to the  amount of improvements invested  by-the city in'..them. t Apparently it  has never occurred 'to our worthy  assessors to apply'the variations'so ���������������������������  to the property comprised within  the city limits, but to" save themselves trouble, and without regard  to the public interest" and good,  they have gone on from year to  vear putting everything to their of  a dead level valuation' on the basis1  of city lots. If the city had during  the years that are past spent the  public moneys evenly and spread  them equally, that would not be so  much . to   be   said,   but,   whereas,  on the brick block, the pivotal point  was lowered $3,450.  Mr. Editor, do you think that this  assessor; whoever he^yas, could or  would swear that this1 farm, or indeed" any other farm of likeysize,  increased in agricultural value -to  this amount in one year. The assessor is' the public servant of the  council'and is liable to them if he  does anything in his assessment  that; misleads; the council. He is  liable for the financial loss occasioned' through"- his .carelessness.  This excessive charge has remained  against niy'f arm ever" since, and on]  attempting to appeal,- I. was "-in-*  formed"! was too late";r then"on at-"  tempting'the.-following year,'I was  informed that no ^appeal could r be  taken:'against the*:'previous year's  assessment, but *I find'"that-a'city, is  like an individual and is liable.at  any time to .correct an error or to  remit "an overcharge. The city, like  an individual, cannot evade .its responsibilities without serious detriment to itself'and the residents.  Again, in the year 1913.J sold an  acre���������������������������'the best acre I had on hand���������������������������  for the sum of $1200. .As city politics had somewhat changed, I  thought 1 would try again to reduce  mv assessment, but,.Mr. Editor, the  same thing ' happened1' .as before:  the amount of my sale .was added to  my assessment and was.not deducted, and the remaining acres in that  particular block were promptly  assessed at the price realized ��������������������������� for  the one sold. ��������������������������� I might say there is  only one niore acre of equal value  to the one sold, and 2 1-2 acres,  when' disposed of, must go for  about $10 per -acre .as pasture. I  hold, Mr. Editor, that ttys is not  :assessing.=^It^is^openly_^taking=  money out of one man's pocket and.  putting it into another's without  justification or reason. I am willing  and ready to pay my just share  of taxation, and am sure the other  owners of farm land are with me in  this, but this open robbery which  has been going on for years must bc  stopped now and thc city must  make-amends. A community to bq,  prosperous must bc content, and lor  a community to be content, it must  not only bc prosperous but its individual members must also feel  and know that they arc being justly  and honestly treated by,thc governing bodies constituting its com-  niunilv. life. This is the simplest  lesson in political economy and is  unanswerable.  I recently received a circular letter from the.finance committee calling mv attention to arrears of taxation suk! pointing out that tlie exceptional advantages of living within thc city were so greaj, that it  should be'worth the effort, to try  .and square 'off outstanding taxes.  Mr. Editor, if the amiable compilers, of that circular letter will  kindly show me in the columns of  your valuable paper wherein, my  farm enjoys any more city advantages than, say Mr. Murphy.'s  farm, I should deem it a favor, and  they would bc .filling a public duty.  The two farms adjoin, and are similar in character. Mr. Murphy's  farm is outside the city limits, my  farm is within. I do not know the  government assessment on Mr.  Murphy's farm, but I do know that  I have 20 acres on|#ide the city  limits-and-adjoining-and that the  government assessment thereon is  $20 per acre; also-the city assess  this 20 acres at $20 per acre for  school purposes, the same as the  government. Can the finance committee or anyone else explain to mc  .why my farm inside the city is  assessed'> three times higher than  ray farm and,* presumably, Mr.  Murphy's farmV outside the city?  Mr. Murphy's"'farm enjoys city  water at city rates and pays thereon  no contribution to lhe sinking  funds of lhe city. Whilst the city  is legally liable to supply city water  all over my farm, still they do not  do so, but. compel me to put in a  pumping plant thereby indirectly  forcing me to pay a higher, water  rate, whilst -my farm has to' contribute its share to the sinking  funds of the city. Your readers will  see therefore, that under present  conditions it is impossible, to farm  within the city limits, however  much one may desire to do so.  If you compare this city and its  policy and ils results with that of  neighboring ..cities you are struck  by the marked difference. Take  our neighbor, Armstrong.' At an  early date thc public men there recognized the need of a suburban  population and they offered every  public facility to the owners of-  adjoining-farms to induce this kind  of population to settle there. The  result is that Armstrong today has  a goodly number of ncarby'but out  of to,wn residents spending their  money iri Armstrong, making for it  and helping to beautify ils surroundings. , -Armstrong - attracts'.  Compare tliis poition with our's.  Every effort in-thc past has becii  made by the city to keep the subuN  ban population away, .with" thc re?  suit that is only too apparent to all:,  Enderby in her public policy repels. Are we, Mr. Editor, arriving  at a time when her policy will; be  one of attraction, not-repulsion?  ���������������������������'  Thanking you for allowing me so  much of your valuable space, I am,  Yours truly,   ' Gkoiuji- R.

BRINGING IN  THE  WOUNDED  In a recent letter written from  Shorncliffc, Eng., Privat Pacey, an  Enderby man, writes: "I have just  received several copies of your  valuable paper, and 1 must say 1 felt  at home again on reading them, as  1 am acquainted with so many Enderby people. They were quite a  treat to"'me, and .1 .hope lhis letter  finds yourself and family and my  Enderby friends enjoying good  hcallh and prosperity. In regards  to myself, I am line, and ready for  the Germans any old lime.  ."My old regiment, the 13. C. Horse  from Vernon, wilh some of our Enderby boys who are wilh them, left  for France a short time ago, and  our bows were all well and feeling  lit for'anything. As for myself, J  transfercd from lhe B. C. Horse  while at Victoria into the 48th Battalion, which place we left shortly  after the 13. C Horse for England.  We landed here on July lllh, and  since Ihen our battalion has been  split up, several drafts being taken  to reinforce other battalions al lhe  front when the big drive was made  a short time ago. Seventeen of our  men were killed and one wounded  oul of thc drafts. Wc could hear  the tiring of lhe big guns night-and  dav here, as wc are only 35 miles  from thc firing line. There is another draft expecting to leave our  battalion next week for the Ironl  and I expect to bc one of them.  We have been through some very  hard training since we came here.  I can tell you, soldiering in Canada  is fun to what it is over here.  "The 48th Battalion were inspected by our King and Earl Kitchener a short lime ago. They  were quite pleased wilh lhe showing we made.  "Wc have all kinds of ram over  here. We have been wet to the skin  manv limes.and our tents Hooded,  and Ve have no place to dry our  clothes, and hardly any room to  move   as  we   have   ten   men   to  a  bell tent. .  _,,  "Sav, this war is awful. The people in'Canada have no-idea what it  is like. We do a lot of guarding ol  lhe hospitals here, and lo sec the  cases that come in every day, by  thc hundreds. It is a shame; Willi  legs and-arms off���������������������������just the trunk  left; others with lower jaw shot oil;  others blinded; others with half the  face blown ol)'. -There arc hundreds like-these poor fellows. Our  nurses are working hard and arc  doing their share well."  '���������������������������-MARRYING BROKEN HEROES  ii ��������������������������� .  . English women are being asked  to    marry    tbe    invalid    soldiers,  broken in health and shattered in  limb, who are returning from  the  front.     There   are   already   many,  thousands of these broken heroes,  made useless for active commercial  pursuits by blindness; deafness, or  loss of limb.   All Ihe struggling nations .will be hard put to it in caring  for   them.     Canada   will   have   its  share to look after.  ���������������������������   Hard as it is, it seems to be the  women's job.    Those who are encouraging them to mate themselves  with mutilated men realize what-a  sacrifice it will be, and are basing  their   appeal   on   patriotism,    'lhe  hazards  of   matrimony   under  thc  best  conditions  arc  by  no  means  few.    To support an  invalid  husband is a task lo stagger the most  courageous   woman.

A. MUNRO ������������������_ CO.,        ARMSTRONG  The Dry Goods Specialists  have always shown themselves peculiarly adapted to sacrifice, and in  this case it is not a sacrifice merely  to make comfortable the broken,  men. It is a sacrifice to the race.  There has been much talk about  lhe deterioration of nations after  exhaustive wars. The best men are  killed, and the shirkers and defectives remain at'.'home to breed, il  was this theory which evoked thc  crv of breed before you die when"  the English soldiers .first shipped to  France. Now they are coming  hack. However helpless they are to  earn a livelihood, these men may  yet be an asset to the nation���������������������������if Ihe  women will have il so. Their fractures and their blind eyes are nol  transmissible. They are still, from  the .standpoint of the next generation, the best men in England.  LATEST WAR SUMMARY  London, Ocl. 20.���������������������������The race for  thc road lo Conlantinople has  reached an exciting stage. The  Bulgarians are wilhin a few miles  of forming junction with their  Austro-Gcrman allies, while the  French in small force already have  joined the Serbians. The French  arc nol in sullicienl numbers lo assume an actual offensive in "Macedonia, but the rapidity of the Bulgarian advance in that region already has diminished. Along thc  old Bulgarian frontier, from a point  northeast of Vranya to lhe Roumanian border the Serbians arc  yielding lillle ground.  Actual junction between thc Bulgarians and their allies, which  may bc a matter of only a few  hoiirs, will soon show whether the  Serbians* arc able to hold their  mountain positions until the Entente Allies bring up slrong forces.  Ilalv is still hammering away at  the Austrian front,,which is shaking, but unbroken. It i.s expected  in London that the Italian offensive  will at least prevent thc Austrians  from crcinforcing their Balkan  army.      "  Russia by her stubborn defense  of Riga and Dvinsk, and her con-  linued offensive in Galicia, is keeping thc cnem> busily engaged  along the whole eastern front. In  the West there is evidence that the  Allies are- again preparing'for an  offensive which may prevent tne  Germans from ���������������������������diverting*'any of  their forces there.  SOON TO COME TO A HEAD  London, Oct. 25.���������������������������(By F. A. Mackenzie.)���������������������������Thc parliamentary crisis  is expected to come to a head  shortly. Two views exist here concerning thc crisis. One party, led  by thc Chronicle, maintains that the  crisis is the result of a deliberate  plot engineered by Lord Northcliffe, with thc sympathetic support  of Lloyd George for lhc ousting ol  Asquith, Gray, Balfour and Kitchener from the cabinet. They main-  lain that any attempts to displace  thc present government can only  create chaos and imply that one  section of the Cabinet is deliberately disloyal to thc Government.  "What we'should bc left with,' says  the Chronicle, "would bc a divided  nation, paralyzed administration,  and no new grouping of ministers  which could command cither parliamentary or national support."  "The House of Commons, in  which thc sober men of all parlies  cannot fail to sec where the land  lies, can blow lhis conspiracy away  this week if it likes.   Lei it bc so."  Thcother section regards lhe  crisis as the direct outcome of Ministerial   mistakes,   and   denies   in-  The Times declares: ^Sensible  men will be well advised io ignore  the altogether fantastic tales of intrigue against . the Government,  which obtained fresh currency  from poisoned pens lasl week. None  of them, as far as we know, have  the smallest foundation in fact. The  limes in which we live are infinitely too serious to offer any hope ol  success of personal ambitions of a  kind not unknown lo normal politics. We frankly do nol believe  that any of our public men indulge  in them today, or would have thc  slightest chance of popular support  if Ihey did." /,���������������������������,*  The Morning Post says* "Wc hear  Far too much of journalistic assassins. Lord Northcliffe is held up  in odium as a sort of Guy Fawkes  caught putting gunpowder in the  cellars .on Downing Street. We  should think the public is getting a  little tired of such nonsense."    _  The Post appeals to Mr. Asquith  It's the Low Priced High  Quality that makes  McClary's Famous Steel  Range the moj_l satisfactory Range on the market  Prices $45.00 and up, according to size and. trimmings.

How National Character Callages  Thc psychology of nations and  armies in war is not merely more  intense and passionate, it is completely different from thai, of the  same nations and armies in peace.  Foreigners, who in limes of peace  were thought of as waiters, hotel  keepers, musicians, must in limes  of war be thought of as hordes of  anti-Christs, enemies of mankind.  War, other things being approximately cqifal, is won by the nation  wilh the strongest will, and the way  lo strengthen your will to light is  lo think of your enemy as base,  brutal and feeble, and of your side  as strong, gallant, clever.
