THURSDAY, DECEMBER9, "1915  ORGANIZING THE FARMERS  After all the Tun and ridicule thai has been and  will yet he poked at Henry Ford on account of his  peace mission to Europe, there may, after all, be  much more in it and back of it than appears on  the surface. The cost of chartering" the ship to  take his peace pilgrims from New York to The  Hague, is said lo be more than $60,000 up to thc  day of leaving. It will probably be double lhat  amouni before lhe pilgrims are bound for home  again. This was paid by Mr. Ford, and hc will  stand lhe cost for the entire mission, going and  returning and while in Europe. The plans of the  peace campaign will be laid while at sea, so, in  spile of all lhe talk of pro-war advocates, it is  sale lo say lhat much of it, if nol all, is purely  .fiction. Ford and parly may have something in  Iview which has nol yet been divulged. They  j would not start out upon such a mission without  some definite object in view, with some reasonable assurance of at least partial success. Even  the pro-war party must give the Ford peace parly  credit for starling upon a very laudable mission,  whether it succeeds or nol. One thing about it:  ll' the pro-war party, munition works, and the  war-intcrcst-getting capitalists, have nothing to  fear from Ford and his party, why arc they  making such a fuss about il? Are thc war lords  of Europe and America afraid of thc peace movement'? Do they Tear the consequences of letting  lhc people talk about peace? Do they wish to  suppress the movement for peace? Arc they determined to bring all nations to thc verge of ruin,  out of which must come anarchy and open revolt? One would think from the amouni of  ridicule tossed al lhc Ford party lhat to favor  peace is an indication of insanity. Perhaps it is  in these war-iiiad days, but the lime will come  when lhe cry of reason must bc listened to by the  war-tyrant/ It may then bc seen that* thc Ford  mission of peace was only the start of thc great  wave lhat eventually must sweep war and all its  brutal consequences inlo thc sea of thc dark  and dismal past. II' it were not so, Ihen why this  cry against militarism? If war is a thing to bc perpetuated then il behooves all nations to become  military, and the more perfect lhc organization  to slaughter and destroy, thc more praiseworthy.  LORD DERBY S GREAT SUCCESS  The Press is in receipt of a communication  signed, by .1. L. Pridham, Chairman of the organizing commillcc, daled at Kelowna,. stating-that  "we have formed here The British Columbia Agricultural Organization Association,' the paramount purpose-of which association,. which is  nqn-partizan, is lo draw into one comprehensive  organization all the bona-fidc farmers only of the  Province, bolh men and women,, and to briny  aboul by their mutual study of their 'mi'lual problems common action of Ihem all for the solution  thereof, and lo promote lhe interest of the farming community in an honorable and legitimate  way, and, knowing something of the magnitude  of lhe problem which wc are facing, have decided  lhat local organizations of bona-ficd farmers oniy  should he established throughout the Province at  all points where an interest can be .created, and  Ihen locals should each send delegates to a convention .where a cenlral executive representing  them all should be elected.  "A campaign lo organize local associations  throughout the Province has been started and  local associations arc already formed and ollicers  duly elected. As this work has to be undertaken  bv voluntary workers, and il is impossible to do  - i IV1 i i-o u g! i o u U h u-w-l i o 1 (^Provin ceJiyJ beVn ulivkk  mil efforts of the Organization Commillcc, we  would he glad if everv active farmer in his (lis  Lord Derby's success as director-general of recruiting in England may indeed be said to have  saved the coalition cabinet from disaster.' Two  months ago it was confronted by the necessity of  conscription, all thc methods until then employed  of securing recruits by means-of ^voluntary enlistment having been apparently exhausted. A large  number of supporters' of thc existing cabinet,  however, were strongly opposed to compulsory  service in any.shape or form, deeming it contrary  lo lhc time-honored principles of British civic  freedom. Recruits in numbers far surpassing thc  most sanguine anticipations have been obtained,  and, while il is just possible compulsory service  may have lo bc enforced later on, so as to get even  wilh the relatively few remaining "slackers," il  is considered unlikely there will be any need to  have recourse to such measures. Lord Derby's  success is said to bc due almost entirely to his gift  for organization.   His plan has been briefly this:  He has taken the returns of thc registration of  lhe population, completed lasl August, which  show the age, the condition, and the occupation  of every citizen. Each man employed in necessary work, that is to say, necessary from thc government point of view,'such as thc manufacture  of arms, munitions, and war supplies, was  marked .wilh a star.. .Every.remainingrman,..that.  is to say, every unslarred man of military age, bc-  Iween, the ages of 18 and 45, had his name in  tricl would appoint someone to represent them scribed on a couple of cards, lhe one white and  ���������������������������     . ������������������������������������������������������!    .i      t\ ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������..!������������������������������������������������������   r ��������������������������� ,.,,;i     ,i       ..!....  i.i... i i.:..k :~..���������������������������   ,i..i..   ,,^.-.  lo communicate wilh the* Organization Commit  lee a I Kelowna.  lhe other blue, and on which various data concerning him are given.

THE WALKER PRESS  Parchment  The Dominion law against the selling of  butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamery Butter"���������������������������as thc case may be���������������������������printed  on thc butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer. In the first place, if his Butter  wrappers are neatly printed with his name and  Hhe^brand-oMhc-butter-on-the4abel,-the-storc^  keepers can readily sell the butter at 5c a pound  more than hc can get for butter wrapped in paper  that is not printed, and the butter-maker gets thc  advantage in 5c a pound more for his butter from  the merchant. *���������������������������  It is the duty5 of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some'butter  makers have only a cow or"'two, and make so little  Jiuttcrjhatit does notyappear to them that 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 up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed wilh thc 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 riot repuire butter wraps 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 /  Thursday, December 9,1915  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  BALKANS ARE UNIQUE  If we want to understancAvhat is going on in  the Balkans we must realize that the district is  unlike any other; that it consists, in the main, of  three runways, lying between mountains;  that  one of these is a sort-of main street, between the  Balkans and Rhodope Mountains, through which  passage may be had from the Danube to Constantinople; and that two others, one along the Morava and Vardar,  the   second   along   the   Ihar  through   lhe  Sanjak   of   Novibazar,   are   main  streets  between   the  Danube  and   the  Aegean  whose importance is multiplied by the further  fact that through the high Albanian hills there is  only one fairly practicable high street to the Adriatic, that which might be run, but never has  been from Novibazar to Alcssio or Durazzo.   The  military writer in Beck's Weekly, says llie Balkan  war is a sort of gigantic lawsuit for access to the  high road (the sea) from a large interior property, (Austria) shut off from it by the owners of  smaller properties.    Along these roads thc Romans, the Cruisadcrs, the Turks, all moved on  their various quests.    Along these roads  Germanic energy, commercial as well as military,  seeks an entry to the East]    Along, these roads  Greece hopes, in thc future, the cargoes will move  coming and going, that will fill her ports with  ships and her marts with commerce.   It is the  present misfortune of Serb farmers and Vlact  shepherds to bc more or less in the way, and to  bc doomed, for thc present at least, .to be evicted  with arms in their hands. . Y ������������������������������������������������������;  "Wc may very well doubt whether'it'enters  into the plans of Great Britain or of France to  close these roads, that iss permanently. Italy, indeed, wants thc Adriatic road opened, and herself in control of thc Adriatic ending of it, whence  she could practically control the future of Serbia  through control of its exportable surplus: Russia  would be content to sec the routes opened, but  only if she stood herself at the vital point, on the  Bosphorus, whence her influence, ancl her armies  could follow the runways into Europe as long  ago from the same starting point the conquering  Turk followed them. But Germany has achieved  a great deal in getting them opened to herself and  her allies. Bulgaria lias achieved a great deal, if  she can hold it,s" in attaining to the primacy  amongst the southern farmer Slavs.  "But for France, especially,-and for Great Britain nearly as much, the importance of what is  happening is .that it increases the ability of the  Germans to hold their own on the western land  front.where, more and more it is agreed,' the:fortunes of the war must be settled if they cannot bc  settled by tlie pressure of sea power."  J The predicament-of small nations4ii,Europe is  ancl always has been precarious. The principle,  of preserving the small nationalities has been  supported nobly in times of convenience; but  when the larger indulgent nations find their exigences becoming acute the principle, yields  slightly or much to considerations which.defy explanation. Most of these small nations of the  Balkans are merely custodians of advantages  which one larger nation wants to keep out of the  hands of another larger nation.. Belgium-stood in  that dangerous relation to Germany ancl Great  Britain; Serbia in thc same relation to Austria  and Russia. Both have had to suffer the cruel  consequences. The principle that the small nations must be protected in their right to national  .existence is really a gloss over the materialistic  arrangement by which Europe, seeking to pre-,  serve its own cqilibrium by means of balanced alliances, set certain items of serious dispute aside  in the custody of small nations. We have seen  this arrangement break down, and it need not be  ^wondcrecHatt^^The^porHoi^-Salonica^was^en-  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S LUMBER MARKET  The largest market for B. C. lumber will always be the neighboring prairie provinces, the  quantity consumed by -Alberta, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba amounting to 60 per cent of tbe  total production. The actual amount, which in  1912 was seven or eight hundred million feet, fell  in 1914 and 1915 to about half'that quantity. It  is this loss, combined with thc heavy fall in  lumber prices and the falling off in the amount  of*lumber used in B. C. itself which has brought  about depression in the lumber industry of this  Province. With town and city building operations on the prairies at a standstill for the lime  being, with construction of new railroads more  or less completed, the difficult problem of bow to  increase the consumption of lumber in the  prairies has been pressing for solution.  An investigation on the subject of lumber consumption on thc prairies whicli the Minister of  Lands directed to bc made has disclosed thc fact  thai buildings on "the average farm have not kept  pace with crop production.   There exists a great  need, which will continue for ycars, ior all manner of farm buildings, particularly for implement sheds, granaries and barns for live-stock.  Nearly  every  farm   is  without   some  building  essential to really profitable farming. The prairie  agricultural  authorities,   of  course,   have  been  fully alive to this situation, and in all three provinces have been  considering  the issuance  of  pamphlets dealing with,the need and advantages  of more up-to-date buildings on the farms. They  are encouraging farmers in every possible way to  go in for mixed farming, which, of course, cannot bc successfully carried on without well designed "buildings.    Inasmuch   as   the  principal  material for all these buildings is wood,, the results of thc investigation mentioned made it evident that here lay an opportunity to give real  service to thc farmer which would at the same  time inevitably lead to an increased use of lumber.   An offer to co-operate with the University  of Saskatchewan'in the preparation and publication of a complete series of bulletins on farm  buildings was cordially accepted by the Minister  of Lands, ancl for thc last six months or more  ollicials of the Forest Branch and the College of  Agriculture of the University have been engaged  iri this work:   Some of the bulletins arc now being delivered by the printer, and the final one will  bc" finislied shortly. k The series comprises  ten  bulletins in all, ancl covers the following subjects:  Combination or general purpose barns,  dairy  barns, milk, yand ice .houses,, beef cattle barns,  horse barns, sheep barns, piggeries "and smokehouse,   poultry   houses,/implement   sheds "and  granaries, silos and root cellars, and farm houses/  The pamphlets are of handy, size, well arranged,  ancl contain illustrations of thc various plans:  Besides  information  dealing  with  thc  use  of  buildings and methods bf erecting them, complete bills of material are given.   Thc bulletins  will thus assist lhe farmer'to decide upon'the designs for a building and render it very easy for  him to estimate cosl and to order materials.  -*��������������������������� *- i V/, yv I  trusted to the safe-keeping of Greece, but when it  became apparent lhat it was in danger of falling  into the hands of the Central Powers, we sec both  Britain and France land forces there determined  to make it their war base for Balkan operations.

FRUIT PACKING SCHOOLS  The Department of Agriculture will again offer  fruit packing schools during the coming.\yinter.  While the supply of packers was nearly equal to  the demand last year, there was a decided shortage in many districts this year owing to the enlistment of a number of our former packers, and  it is hoped that advantage will be taken of this  opportunity to supply the deficiency. As in previous years, the local administration blithe packing schools will be placed in the hands of a responsible body such as the Farmers' Institute, the  Fruit Growers' Association, or tbe Board of  Trade. The number of pupils must be not less  than twelve and not more than fifteen, and the fee  of two dollars each will be charged for the twelve  lessons. In districts where it is impossible to secure the above number of pupils, a three-day  packing school may be arranged for with a minimum of eight and not over twelve pupils, at a fee  of one dollar per pupil, to take six lessons of two  and a half hours each. All information desired  will be furnished by Mr. C. S. Handcock, secretary of the Institute, Grindrod.  In a recent interview Mr. Hudson Maxim, inventor and manufacturer of the rapid-fire guns  and explosives, paid a tribute to the importance  of the mother cog1 in thc efficiency of thc German co-operative system ancl the building of lhc:  war machine which, as he says, has been the  surprise of tlie world. Mr. Maxim believes in  conscription,wliiciriie siiys"mak^for_imtriotivSni"7  because "wc love those we serve." He thinks liic.  secret of Germany's success is lhc ability to mo-  bilizc her industries, which, in his opinion, is far  more important than her ability to mobilize her  armies. He thinks the efficiency of thc co-operative system has been proved.  "The pacifists claim that war is the result of  overpreparation," he said. "The exact opposite is  truer-None of the-other nations were prepared.  Germany was the only one that had perfected her  plans of preparation ycars in advance. Furthermore, Germany is. spending all of her money at  home, which distantly.removes tbe prospects of  exhaustion. When war came Germany had  more than 100,000 machine guns on hand. For  nine ycars she paid British arms companies a  royalty on 600 machine guns a month. 1 predict  that the Avar will last from three to seven ycars  longer. I also think that thc war will.end in a  draw. I don't believe lhat either side will come  out of the war exhausted cither economically or  in men. I think they will come out stronger in  the end. England may be poorer, but infinitely  more potential."  This opinion, while not in line with that held  by the leading men of France and England, nor  perhaps of. lhc Teutonic war lords, is nevertheless  worth considering, coming as it docs from a man  high up in "the ranks of those men who furnish  the munitions of war and into whose coffers the  belligerent nations must dump their coin.

TOMKINSON, Grindrod  WHAT DIPLOMACY MUST FACE  Under the caption, "Germany  Wants Peace," Beck's Weekly, ot  Montreal says: "Germany's positional* she chose so to slate il, might  be that her armies had carried the  war for national 'defence' to the  point where security has been attained; that lhe establishment of  freedom of communication with  Turkey was tbe last step in the  achievement of this object; lhat she  and her allies hud .demonstrated  that they could not be crushed;  that there is no occasion for offensive operations against ligypl, India, Russia, France or Italy; lhat  defence only is required, and that  she is prepared for il; that her  troops can stay where they are until  the opposing troops go home; that  in the meantime she will proceed  with the development of the territories within the lines her armies  hold, and that if this phase i.s entered upon by reason of the refusal  of the Entente Allies to discuss  terms of peace which might result  in German withdrawal from certain  territories, the occupation of those  territories would bc considered for  the future as prescriptive. This,  it is almost certain, is what thc  diplomacy of thc Allies will now  have to face.  . There seems to be little doubt  that thc answer will be in the negative, although it might be easy lo  underrate the significance of the  latest pronouncement of the Morning Post, the organ of British aristocracy, which, while not advocating peace, for the first time concedes lhat there may be a possibility of peace. What the Allies  will say 'lo Germany is that Mr.  Asquilh's declaration- still holds  good, and that German power must  bc broken. But what Ihey will  have to say to each other is that  they are now definitely faced by a  new set of conditions; that continuance of the war means a competition in the qualities of physical,  financial and economic endurance;  that the phase of battle campaigns  has passed, and the phase of seige  taken its place; thai Germany,  which began the war with rapid  offensives and tremendous waste  of men, has now achieved positions  on which she can reap thc maximum of advantage from the defensive position; thai for the Western  Allies to definitely assume the offensive will involve for tliem, as it  has for Italy, enormous wastage of  men even -for every small gain;  that reducing the German effectiveness in man power can only bc accomplished by still heavier reduction of Allied man power; and that  the expenditure upon organization  and materials will be in multiples  of that to bc borne by thc Central  Powers acting on the defensive. ~All  this they will be facing when they  decide to reject unsatisfying proposals and go on with the war."  The Price  of Peace  London, Dec. 0.���������������������������Thc Morning  Post in* an editorial on "The Price  of Peace," says:. "The fact that the  ruling authorities of Germany are  permitting a debate in the Reichstag on thc subject of peace negotiations is significant. Germany  rightly believes she can now likely  obtain terms more favorable to herself than at any future period of thc  war. Accordingly, Germany i.s. beginning tentative movements in lhal  direction. She i.s well aware lhat  by the means of the exercise of  tactful appeals and plausible representations she may enlist on her  side the great body of neutral opinion. She has emissaries in <his  country, France, i-t.HSia, Italy and  in all neutral co.initios. In lhc  United States sho lias nioic conspirators than Ann: i:'i knows whal  to do with.'

They  are fighting Iheir own quarrel and.  intend to fight A in their own way  and to their own cud. Their people  will be well advised lo leave matters alone. Germany can have  peace on the terms of the Allies as  soon as she likes; on her own terms  never. The right anvwer to- the  German peace t.oiv;\>'*r������������������-:y is for the  Allies to determine whal shall be  thc terms of peace to bc dictated  when thc right moment i-omcs.
