THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1915  OUTLOOK FOR THE WINTER FAIR  While there is no-merit in blinding our eyes to  facts and attempting to make ourselves believe  lhat commercial and other conditions arc the best  and the outlook for thc winter rosy, still, conditions are not so bad as they might bc. There arc  many hundred Ions oi' hay in the district awaiting  a belter- price, and the same of. potatoes and other  ���������������������������'field*produce.   There arc thousands of bushels of  . wheat, oats and barley yet lb be sold. * And in addition to all this, there are many morc'buttcr producers in lhe district than ever before, and the egg  men are likewise producing heavily irom Iheir  poultry flocks.    While there will be no winter  .camps"in operation by the lumber-mill company,  nevertheless, logging camps will be run. and logs  put upon lhc river banks for next season's cut.  There is no reason lo believe that the winter oi'  . 1915 will bc worse than thai of 1914. Indeed, indications arc lhal it may he heller, provided outproduces succeed in disposing of their product at  even a fair price.  The lliing to remember in a small community  where every man wauls lo do and sell whal lhc  olher man does and sells, is lhal it is fatal to go  up against lhe other man's game���������������������������gel a game of  yourown, and play it to lhe limit.  STRONG MOVES FOR CREAMERIES  II is evident from lhe energetic way in which  several localities in tl._ Okanagan are gelling  oul after creameries to be located there, that the  people of llie Valley arc (irmly convinced lhal the  'best'policy is lo gel hack to'the cow. And another good.feature noted is that they arc not going VolsiLdown and.waiLlor:JJjcJjo__:inuiKMl!_J<A  assist them. Al Armstrong Ihey have organized  whal Ihey lerm the Armslrong and Northern  Okanagan" Dairy and Agriculturel Association,  wilh shares placed al $~>0 each. The purpose is  lo raise local capital sullicienl to purchase a plant  and operate il on cream drawn from all lhe district norlh of Armslrong as well as locally.  The Pcnliclon Herald tells of a similar step  taken lhere by Ihe local husinessmen, and lhe  Hoard of Trade of lhat wide-awake locality has  Ihoroughlv organized the movement.  liminary work must be done in explaining to  buyers thc qualities and methods of manufacture  of our British Columbia woods. There arc many  misconceptions which are very prevalent and  which act as a barrier to the introduction of our.  lumber products. These can only he overcome by  energetic personal work among the buyers by a  "representative thoroughly conversant with every  phase of our lumbering industry. Again, there  are many trade requirements which arc designed  to meel ihe case of Swedish and Russian lumber  but which arc not properly applicable to thc very  different timber species of the Pacific Coast. In  many such cases slight modifications of the customary specifications would not affect lhc interests of lhe Old Country buyer in any way, while  Ihey would cheapen production here and so enable the sawmills of this Province lo quote lower  prices and secure a larger share of this trade.  Through general work of this character thc Provincial lumber commissioner will be of considerable assistance not only in preparing thc way for  future developments but also by co-operating  with the various brokers.and agents who represent lhc interests of British Columbia lumber  firms now doing business in thc United Kingdom  markets. So active has been the campaign conducted by American shippers, and so largely have  Ihcy increased Iheir representation in Europe recently lhal thc Minister of Lands has decided  that a strong effort is.ncccsary to counteract This  action and protect British Columbia business.  Mr. J. G. Woods, the well-known lumberman,  has been appointed as the new lumber commissioner to the United Kingdom.. Mr. Woods has  been long and intimately connected with thc lumber business of the coast.  Hon. Dr. W. H. Montague, who was Minister of  Public Works in lhc Roblin Government, was  found dead in his room iff the Royal Alexander  Hotel lasl Saturday afternoon. Death was due to  heart failure.        - -  FOOL LEGISLATION  All reform movements are a good thing. But  with them'there usually comes a host of fool  movements"which seem to bc thrust in in order  lo divide lhc people and so becloud lhc real issues  as to wreck thc wholc.movcmcnt for reform. . At  a lime like this, when, the public mind is.flitting  about seeking to find someone or something to  blame for its'own misdeeds, wc.hcar of all kinds  of demands for fool legislation.. .The revival.of  lhc prohibition movement has been.the means .of1  bringing forward in British;-Columbia other demands which seek lo improve the morals of the  people by legislation. Movements of this nature  arc as old as lhc hills. They come periodically.  The people go from one extreme tothc other, and  after having gone thc limit in one direction Ihey  turn and go the other. And in thc lead of each  movement will be found a number of good men  and women, and wilh Ihem "cranks"...of various  shades and color, who, unfortunately, are usually  the readiest to air themselves from pulpit and  We carry a good stock of the following  ROBIN HOOD  SEAL OP ALBERTA  RADIUM  GRAHAM  WHOLE WHEAT  RYE  Also Bran, Shorts, Middlings, Wheat, Oats, Barley, Barley Chop,  Oat Chop, Cracked and Whole Corn and a good supply of Poultry  Foods.

"Wc wen tion particularly," says the  Gazelle, "a certain entity, '(one could hardly insult his neighbor by calling it a. man) who is at  present in Kcrcmcos on business, but whose permanent home is at thc coast.. At a public meeting  in Kcrcmcos, speaking on what hc was pleased lo  lerm Prohibition, hc laid an insult at thc door of  every home in thai patriotic town when, after  hemming, hawing and hedging, hc staled that if  the,bo.vs-wcrc-backJ'rom.the.front thev would all  The only rigid a grown man or woman should  really want is Ihe rigid lo be useful.  ASSISTING THE LUMBER INDUSTRY  The heavy orders for lumber for the United  Kingdom placed through the Provincial Government during Ihe past summer as a result of the  visit of Lumber Commissioner MacMillan to  Kurope show whal results can be obtained by  governmental action in assisting lhc lumber industry. .In order lo follow up the advantage al-  readv gained in this new line of work, the Hon.  \V. B.'Boss has announced thai lhe Provincial  Government is sending a business representative  of lhe industry lo London.  Investigation has already shown that before  lhe Kuropenn market can he entered, on any  scale, by our manufacturers a great deal of pre-  vote for prohibition, as thc reason most of.them  went to lhe front was.lo.gel away from the liquor.  This fearless'advocate of .prohibition has four  sons. Are they at the front? No. They arc not  afraid of liquor. They are up in thc north trapping; went there as soon as war was declared."  The Pcnliclon Herald calls attention lo another  freak movement. This time the W. C. T. U. of  that town is. responsible. Al a regular meeting  cd' the ladies of that organization, a resolution  was passed and forwarded to olher branches of  lhe organization lo he passed, protesting against  the appearance in ��������������������������� mail-order house catalogues,  llie semi-nude figures of men and women showing tlie neal, close-fitting underwear and white-  wear garments.  The good ladies of the Penticton W.C.T.U.  ought lo be reminded lhal nudity is never indecent; clothes may be, and lingerie generally is.  Perhaps it was lingerie Ihey were after.  STILL CAN HOLD THE LINES  The Londlnn Times correspondent with thc  Russian headquarters, points oul that despite the  departure of a score of German divisions from  lhe Russian front, the Germans slill dispose 'of  huge forces "aggregating 800,000 bayonets and  80,000 sabres." "With lhe aid of.numerous guns,  innumerable Maxims and miles upon milcfv of  barbed wire," llie correspondent adds, "the Teutons can hold in the various sectors from which  men have been transferred long enough lo bring  them back in face of an emergency."  Tlie concspondenl expresses the belief that the  Germans have failed in their determined efforts lo  gain the Dvina River line, but they hope to start  next spring on a final conquest of Russia, "showing thereby lhat Ihey have lost faith in the mirage  of a separate peace."

WORK OF THE RED CROSS  I**-.  <>-I  The good, enthusiastic, patriotic women who  . arc doing Red Cross work in this, and every city,  town, village and rural section of Canada, need  have no worries in respect to what becomes of the  articles they make for thc soldiers. Every article  reaches the place intended, hence the yarns, and  even worse, as to what becomes of Red Cross contributions, can be forgotten as soon as heard.  In a letter addressed to the Toronto Saturday  ' Night, Mrs. Plumptrc, thc honorary secretary of  thc Canadian Red Cross, says: "Mr. Noel Marshall has asked mc to reply to your letter. No  Canadian Red Cross supplies, or Canadian War  Contingent Association (C. W. C.

He expresses  the fear that Saloniki as a base is not of much account as it is a "considerable distance from thc  scene of hostilities in Serbia, and lhc necessity of  guarding a long line of communications in a  difficult country and in the face" of a hostile population is regarded as rendering a northward  march from Salonikki inadvisable. Thc concentration of forces farther east," presumably at  Kavalla or near the Dcadcgatch railway��������������������������� is held  by the correspondent "to be impossible owing to  military reasons."  -While subsequent events may prove thc correctness of the Times' military writer, still, can  the same writer tell us what other more suitable  place could be selected as a base by the Allies as  near the Serbian hostilities? No doubt thc base  at Saloniki will-prove a difficult one to hold and to  operate from when the enemy forces now conquering Serbia are released (provided they can be  released before thc Allies succeed' in getting into  Serbia?)' and thrown upon the Allied forces now  operating in the vicinity of ,Strumnitza, but is  there any other point the Allies could select which  would be less difficult to hold or to operate from?  AMUSING SIDE OF OUR CENSORSHIP  NO ALUM  ; PLAINLY*  PRINTED ������������������  iHLEWHITEST.  Granting that the restriction of war news is  perhaps justified by war conditions, it is, nevertheless exasperating; but exasperating as it, is," it  has its amusing side also.'** As one writer has said,  the citizen of London picks up his newspaper and  reads about -the war. Much of his war news  comes from New York . He turns to the editorial  page and^ reads comment based avowedly upon  what has appeared;.in New York newspapers. A  Zeppelin raids London, and three davs later there  is printed ah account of the raid by the-.commander of a German Zeppelin,- the. account-under  a New York date line. It is not much wonder that  the'people'at home arc becoming tired of having  to depend upon this second-hand information of  how their sons are fighting, where, they are fighting and with what*.success. "'When these reports  come to^ Canada, either through thc medium-of.  the American newspapers or London newspapers,  the .Canadian ipress cannot: reproduce the; news,'  eyen__secdnd-handed from the American- press or  third-handed from thelLondon press; -". -Vt_ vV;  : The censorship department of; Canada,-Uke that"  oii England,, is-working -under-direction" of the  military department,; and no:doubt'the':belief pre-,  vails here;as it^does there'that thelsuppression-of  unfavorable reports, aids in recruiting. But does  it? "Hasn't it a tendency to act the* other way?"  Hagic  baking  powdeb  LOOK OUT FOR THE ROCKS  Perhaps the leaders of the. prohibition movement in the Province are justified in taking the  position, they have assumed, but there is good  reason to.doubt it. A few days ago they went  from Vancouver Ho meet Premier McBride and  insist upon the demands previously made being  iheLby^theJGovernment.^^Lm.usULelLj^Uj.Sir.  Richard," said Mr. Jonathan Rogers, president of  thc organization, "that I speak for the Prohibition Party, and nothing but a clear-cut issue similar to the Alberta bill will satisfy us. If thc Government refuses that we refuse to accept any substitute." ' ,  "You want the Alberta bill," replied Sir Richard  "that is what you will accept:, nothing more and  nothing less?"  "Practically," said Mr. Rogers. "So far as I am  able tojudge thc feeling of our party there can bc  no compromise on that point. Wc would rather  go down ot defeat on that point than accept anything else."  To this Premier McBride replied: "You say wc  arc to follow thc Alberta or Saskatchewan  method. I say, as Prime Minister of this Province, that the Government which undertakes to  give the people Prohibition, should live up io thc  full case. In Saskatchewan, the Government is  dispensing liquor, while in Alberta liquor may  bc consumed in private houses. When you call a  thing Prohibition which is not Prohibition, it is a  fraud on the people. I want a fair chance to take  all views! As Prime Minister, T.donT want to be  compelled to do what you say. T am impressed  with the strength of this movement and the bona  fides of those who are advocating it, but I claim  the right to submit it to the people in fair form."  HOW ABOUT SALONIKI?  The military writer on the London Times has  seriously questioned the advisability of .several  military moves that have been made by the Allies  in* the war, and in so doing has repeatedly exposed weaknesses; long before events proved the  writer to be right. He is "on the ground," as it  were, and versed on all the moves of strategic  importance made by the warring nations.   There-  . Free criticism is the.one safeguard against an  arrogant, slipshod and dishonest policy, party "or  person. For its own good and the good of the  community a court, whether judicial, political or  military, should welcome criticism, not repress  it. We abide by thc decision of our courts, but  the man who thinks he has been wronged by a  court should have the privilege of saying so.' To  think of the powers lhat be as incapable of a  lapse is on a par with the exploded theory that  the King can do no wrong. Under a monarchy  thc judge, in law, is delegated to act for the King.  Under democracy the courts act Tor the people.  And as the people are at times wrong, so may-  judges, or the men in power, also be wrong.

SHOWING UP THE BANKS  In his address to the Canadian  Club of Vancouver last week, Premier Sifton of Alberta dwelt on the  injustice of thc chartered banks  employing their resources largely  in   operations   outside  of  Canada,  over $86,000,000 in call loans outside of Canada, should insist on tax  sales, and even suits against parties  who couldn't be squeezed in tax  sales, for its comparatively insignificant claims against the municipalities. If, instead of extending  such enormous favors to the stock  instead of doing their duly-lo .the; gamblers in New York, that bank  Canadian people whom they were I had employed thc $86,000,000 in le-  Logging  ��������������������������� II  Is  W. J. Woods  Ready for Peace, But���������������������������  Berlin, Nov. 16.���������������������������"Germany is  ready for peace, but the Allies must  lake the initiative." Thc senii-  oflicial Vossiche Zeitung thus defines today the position of Germany  in connection with the various  peace rumors afloat. Despite this  statement by the Zeitung, officialdom here scoffs at the reports in  chartered to serve. Premier Sifton  and Premier Scott of Saskatchewan  are taking an active part in the  growing revolt against the system  that has worked such destruction  in* Canada, especially during the  lasl four years.  Recently the Toronto World published half a page of extracts from  speeches of the said premiers, and  from editorials on the subject in  many newspapers of thc prairie  provinces and Ontario, with its  own comment. One incident that  aroused widespread indignation  yras the refusal of thc chartered  banks to extend credit to thc Moose  Jaw  board   of  education,   without t. In  ������������������e  wheal  growing competi-  ... ...  .,        ,     ,        .,      . i tion, the  prize-winning results of  which-credit the school could not which we������������������ givcn in j.������������������t wcck>s is_  remain open.   This refusal was re-j sue   of   the. Press,   the   following  taliatory, the board having kept its scores were'made:  gitimatc lines in Western Canada,  the people would have been fairly  prosperous, and could have paid  their taxes. But these public service corporations forget or ignore  their obligations to the people, by  whose favor, they exist.  The Edmonton Bulletin quoted  Premier Sifton's remarks upon "the  need of such revision of the banking law ascwill break the monopoly  that now holds the business and industry of Canada in a relentless  grip."  CROP  COMPETITION  AWARDS  account with a private bank. All  efforts of the provincial government to influence thc banks having  failed, the matter wras laken to Ottawa, when ..Finance Minister White  exerted such pressure on one of the  banks that it granted the credit. So  the Moose Jaw juveniles are now  drinking at the fount of knowledge.  Speaking of this in the legislature,  Premier Scott said:  "I declare without hesitation, Mr.  Speaker, that the banks in this instance made <��������������������������� scandalous misuse of  the  authoritv  and  discretion  over  Wheat Crop���������������������������1st, W.

Compulsory Service  PASSES EIGHT BILLION MARK  Great Britain spent $3,715,500,000  in munitions, food and payments to  her army and navy between April 1  and November G, according to-thc  statement made in Commons by  Premier Asquith Friday.
