Another Three Million Wanted  London, Oct. 18.���������������������������"Great Britain  .needs 3,000,000 more men by  spring." This declaration was  made yesterday by Brigadier-  General Sir Eric Swaync, director  of recruiting in thc Northern Command, in a speech at Hull. General  Swaync estimated lhat Germany  still had between 9,000,000 and 10,-  000,000 men from the ages of 18 lo  45, and that, therefore,-it i.s useless  to talk aboul wearing out Germany.  In thc spring, he said, Germany  would lose more men than the  Allies, which would balance the  numbers of thc Allics-and the Central Powers, but if Great Britain  should raise 3,000,000 additional,  Germany would probably recognize  that il was" fruitless to continue.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1915  CO-OPERATIVE EGG CIRCLE  Thc Enderby Egg Circle, under the close und  careful  management of  Mr.  C.  F.  Bigge,  has  ������������������"sho\vri, iii a small way, what our farmers might  do in a much,larger way if they would as intelligently get together and loyally stand, together as  thc lew egg circle men have done their part since  the egg circle was established. Before the egg  circle was established here, our farmers used to  bring Iheir eggs to town in small lots^and peddle,  them about to the storekeepers, taking any price  thc storekeepers were prepared lo give and taking  it in trade, at any price the storekeepers were prepared to charge for thc goods.' Tlie storekeepers,  no doubt, acted fairly, but Ihey had to, of course,  protect themselves against losses, and when eggs  were plentiful Ihey bought heavily, paying for  lliem in goods at thc "trade" price. These eggs  they'packed and put on thc market when eggs  were scarce, at thc highest price obtainable. That  was straight, legitimate- business. But you will  note thc profit, going .and coming, was always  against the producer of the eggs.  "Today, note thc difference: In the past year  the egg circle has distributed to its members over  $1 .'900 in cash for eggs sold through thc circle.  At no time has the price of eggs fallen below 25c,  and for the most of the time the price has been  from 30c to 40c per dozen. Today, the price is 45c  and the egg. circley cannot begin to fill the orders.  coastVTncl  wgs that  lhc circle cannot fill. The circle requires more  members. If it had the slock the manager could  do ten limes lhc business he is now handling and  al very lillle extra* cost.  Wc want more co-operation of this kind. We  have here lhe finest district in the Dominion of  Canada.    Bul we require men of initiative and  ���������������������������stick-lo-itiveness on lheland. Men-who.-have-tried-  bolh methods tell us Ihey can make more off. of  len acres of land under co-operation lhan they  used lo make off of 160 acres under lhe "every  man for himself" plan.  USE OF THE BIG STICK  "Every day demands come in from the  larger..cities oi" the interior for cases of  CO-OPERATIVE FEEDING STATION  In order to help the farmers in preparing and  marketing lhis season's poultry crop, it has been  decided lo open lhis fall a Farmers' Co-operative  Fattening station in the poultry department of  lhc  in  Manitoba Agricullural College. This station  is lo he operated on a strictly co-operative basis,  ensuring to lhe farmers lhc best prices for their  poullrv. The demand in Winnipeg for properly  dressed poultry of high quality is much beyond  lhe supply and it is hoped lo obtain the advantages-of the extra prices paid. Not only will the  fattening station provide best prices for the  farmers!! but it will ensure a much belter finished  product for lhe consumer. The chickens are to  be shipped in from lhe farmers, fattened in the  poultry plant; Ihen marketed. Only the actual  cost of fattening/and handling the poultry will be  charged against the farmer and deducted from  lhe price received, dressed.

Hon. A. LV'Sifton,.premier of Alberta, in a recent  speech in Edmonton, did not hesitate to express some  very frank opinions concerning .the Canadian banking  system. He pointed out that under present conditions  the deposits in Canadian banks had increased to an  extent which made the banks contemplate a reduction  in their interest rate, while at ..the same time Canadian  sccurities were going begging in foreign markets and  paying a high' rate of interest. The premier contended  that no finance minister in Canada of either political  party had ever yet had the courage to handle thc  banks as they should be handled.  These are strong words coming from a man of  Premier Sifton's responsibility, and il is possible  Unit Ihey are not fully justified. At lhe same time.it  is probable that they describe thc situation more correctly than any bank president would care to describe  it. It is interesting, however, fo note ".that Premier  SiHon used the very argument that has been'urged by  this paper i\,s a possible solution of our financial difficulties, namely, the small community bank, having no  branches, organized and controlled by local-'capital  and devoted to lhe support of local institutions.  It does not require that one should bc a critic of the  present banking system to support this smaller bank  idea. It seems .to The Herald that the two sets of  institutions would be collateral to one another in their  usefulness. It would be worth while for the banks  of Canada to notice thc rapidly increasing amount of  discussion on this important" topic,, and to .pay due  attention to it. Attempts to.ignore it can'only lead to  trouble.���������������������������Calgary Herald.        -  The Calgary Herald hits at the root of the evil  of the Canadian banking system. Wc say this  with Icar-and trembling. We have tasted. Wc  suffer. And wc know. Under the present system  thc various branch banks that dot this Dominion  of ours, arc only feeders to the great octopus, far  removed from the people, and-with no immediate  touch, no local interest in, the various communities in which these branches arc located.. It  matters little under what name the various small  branches are run, nor how many there bc in  the community, the power behind them all is  virtually the same. Thc local managers come  and go. They can have only a passing interest in  the affairs of- thc community, and that interest  musl of necessity be to carry out the orders of the  head institution. ~ - ���������������������������  Criticism of the banking system of Canada by  thc press of thc counlry is out; of the question.  Even a lillle paper like the Press finds itself immediately pounced upon by thc powerful octopus  and is made to suffer. The people have no way  of giving voice to their complaints, nor can the  question bc discussed and thus, through discussion, find a way to a better,, condition., Every  'movement brought forward by,the Government,  provincial or dominion, seeking';to give .the people government assistance such as the loaning  systems of New Zealand. Australia,-and elsewhere  i*s immediately wet-blanketed by its advocacy in  thc press of the country being suppressed,  and there a public man^like thc Premier  bcrta, will occasionally speak out. And'he generally subsides immediately hc has peeped. ������������������  Just lo show how it works: Some time ago  the Press had thc temerity, or shall we say courage, to express an opinion on Canadian banks  and banking. Now, even the advertising in tbe  newspapers' of the local branch institutions, is  not within thc scope of the managers of the local  branches. This advertising, and virtually all of  the stationery used, by them, comes from the  head ollice. Immediately after the Press pointed-  out what it.honestly believed to bc a mistaken  policy ^f the banks, in handling the small com-  mumlicsroii^h^h^  the past -year or more, an order came from the  head ollice of lhc Bank of Montreal,through thc  Montreal advertising agency paid*to handle that  banks advertising, cancelling thc small ad that  bank was running in the Press. Latcr,lhrough the  same Montreal advertising agency, A. McKini  Limited, a similar cancellation of the ad for  the local branch of the Union Bank of Canada  ea l n c4o -1i a n<}.-���������������������������-���������������������������- -���������������������������--���������������������������������������������������������������������������������__��������������������������� v^_^_;'*.:_v__:^  This shows how this mighty octopus works.  Thc local managers are not to blame. God knows  they would do something lo help thc institutions  of the local community if they could. But their  hands are lied. * They can only carry out the  instruclions received from lhe head ollice. And  it is this fault we wish lo point but. Not that the  Press desires to lalk againsl banks or to criticise  and accentuate the troubles we are laboring  under but wc believe il is lhe duty ol* thc press  of Canada to speak out against recognized evils  that are forced upon thc people through lhc greed  and avarice of our financial institutions. We were  born and bred in Canada. We love thc country.  We believe it is loo good a country to bc made  an easy field to be exploited by the money  kings. Canada has given her banks unprecedented privileges for many, many years. They  have waxed fat at the expense of the people.  When money flowed into lhe country from England and America by the millions, thc banks  reaped a rich harvest. They told us wc had the  finest banking laws on earth. And wc believed  them. They were, verily, lhe finest on earth���������������������������for  those financial institutions. But the moment they  arc put to thc test wc find them *wcak and insufficient. Aifd, when these weaknesses are  pointed out by the people, through lhc press of  lhc country, we find these mighty institutigns rc-  Herc  of Al-  silence honest discussion.

Some butter  makers have only a coxs^orjwo, and make so little  butter lliat itlloes not! appear, to them 3hat they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butter makers, The Press has printed lip  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of/the maker.

Thc chief military event of the war during the  past spring and summer has been  the German-Austro drive against  the Russian armies. With the beginning of fall has come the apparent commencement of the long  expected drive of the Allies in the  Western theatre of war, and at the  same time, the long threatened  drive of the German-Austro-Hun-  garians in Serbia.  If our offensive in the West was  being as successful as we had been  led to hope for, and the enemy's  positions there were imperiled, the  Germans would have to throw  troops into that quarter instead of  starting a new campaign into  Serbia. And if the position of Jthe  enemy was not satisfactory, or at  least fairly safe, on thc Russian and  Galician fronts, hc would not detach a general such, as Mackcnscn  with several .hundred thousand  men and large quantities of artillery to a theatre of war from which  no offensive was even threatened.  If   Constantinople   was   on   the  verge of. falling, as recent reports  have led us to believe, then it might  be   considered   necessary ��������������������������� by   thc  Central Powers to risk a good deal  in order to strengthen  the Turks.  But this does not seem"to be the  case.   Indeed, it is now freely admitted  in the House of Commons  that the Gallipoli peninsular, campaign'must bc given up.

While the Austro-Germans have  enemies on all .sides, they have the  advantage���������������������������and it is a tremendous  one���������������������������of being in a central position.  Troops can be moved in a few days  from the Russian front to the  French or Italian fronts, and back  again. Whereas, for the Allies to  send troops from France or Italy to  Russia, or tbe reverse, thc only  routes open are the sea one to Arch-  angleNor by way of thc Panama or  Suez canals tp Vladivostok.  The same advantage to the Central Powers and disadvantage to the  Allies obtains in the new, campaign started .in the Balkans. For  the Austro-Germans to move troops  from the other -fronts to the Serbian  front.or the reverse is'a question of  a few days only. For the Allies to  move troops from the French- or  Italian fronts to thc new front before Saloniki, or the reverse, is a  question of one or more weeks.  Thus it will be seen how difficult  thc problem has grown for the Allies to handle..

Hence, until the  Allies  can  develop   in   sonic  one  theatrc-of war an offensive������������������of such  strength that it threatens the very  existence of.the Central Powers to  such an extent that they must collect all their forces to meet it, they  can, because of their position, rest  on the defensive wherever they sec  fit and attack with the bulk of their  forces wherever they wish.  Just now there seems to be an  effort on the part of a large number  of critics in England to place the  blame of the present situation upon  the shoulders of one or the other  member of the Government, but the  more level-headed writers sec in  the situation only the natural sequence of events. The. successive  "���������������������������Russia'n-^defeatsr-slarting^lastVMay-f  coupled with the failure of the  Allies to assume a continuous, determined offensive in the West, and  the practical failure of the Italian  offensive have given the Central  Powers an opportunity to start the  drive through Serbia.

HOLDING  THE- HOME BUSINESS  From ten to fifteen Enderby  ladies went to Armstrong this  week to-make purchases for their  families and homes. The least any  one bf them -would spend,is, say  $10. Armstrong merchants advertise to get this business���������������������������and they  get it. It pays them to-advcrtise.or  the^woiird^iTot"^  England to a clearer view of the  war. Whal now appears to be pessimism is > only a prelude to a  deeper and more profound conception of what the Empire has undertaken. Heretofore, largely because of lhe unwise "sugared  secrecy" policy adopted by the  publicity end of the "War Office, the  people of England and her Colonies  have been living in a fool's paradise. Now the realities of the situ-  alion are beginning to be made  clear to us. If it is not ttfo late, the  Empire will yet overcome the folly  of the past, though just .where the  blow will be struck or how soon is  still hidden in obscurity.  A. MUNRO &.
