"You know our present expenditure is at, the rate' of  about $25,000,000-<o,v.day.*-;or-about,  $9,125,000,000'a year. All tliat was  spent by us during the many.years  of revolutionary and Napoleonic  wars would not suffice for six  months of the present struggle. Our  last war in South Africa' cost us  .$1,250,000,000 and lasted two ancl  one-half years. Today this sum  would bc used in less than -two  months. The" American civil war  was particularly cosily, but the $3,-  330.000.000 which historians say  was spent by the northern states  during those four years is ecpial to.  little more lhan four months of our,  present    expenditures,    yet    these  enormous figures are not out of proportion lo our task. '  "We have kept lhe seas of thc  world open for ourselves ancl, our  allies. Wc closed them to our enemies. An army so small as to be  thought negligible at the beginning  of the war has been expanded in  less than Iwo years into a force  competing in size and equipment  with those vast continental armies  which had taken generations to  build up."  DUNCAN���������������������������ELLIOTT  NUPTIALS  A very pretty wedding took place  al the home of Mrs. A. Duncan,  Tuesday afternoon at 2* o'clock,  when the Rev. J. A. Dow pronounced the words thai made Wm.  E. Duncan and Miss Hazel Elliott,  captain and mate of- another ship  of life set sailing on the sea,of matrimony. These young people are  known to one and. all-in Enderby  and district. They have a host of  friends in alLcirclcs who send with  them "out upon life's journey.their  sincercst'good-wishes. -    y ;  "' The home "was beautifully decorated.* .The simple,...service, was  witnessed by only thc hear friends  and ��������������������������� relatives of 'the bride- and  groom, Mrs. Miles, mother of'the  bride,- coming- froin, Whitcnian's  Landing,^Okanagan ...Lake,..and .her  sister, Madge/'comingTronrSeatller*  The bride .was given away by her  brother, Arthur, and she was supported by her sister. The groom's  best man was his long-time friend,  Roy Wheeler. * The" bride was  charmingly attired in while, crepe  de Chine, and carried a bouquet of  roses.  Following thc bridal lea Mr. and  Mrs. Duncan were driven to Mabel  Lake where they will camp for a  week or ten clays, after which they  will-visit points on Okanagan Lake  before taking up anew~ their residence in Enderby.

They have taken the vicarage home  for the summer months.  Elmer Black this week gave up  his position with Dill Bros, with the  intention of joining thc medical  corps at Vernon. He left Wednesday evening for Spokane, Wash., to  visit his mother and will return by.  the end of August to go into camp  at Vernon.  Colonel Lowery thinks the worship of the dollar in Canada is the  main reason-why our governments  are so corrupt, and he says it is  diflicult for public men to be honest  when their coattails are always being pulled by a bunch of grafting  lleshpot seekers.  Mr. J. Walter-Hughes left for  Nanaimo Wednesday evening to  take one of thc schools of that city.  Miss Hughes preceded her father a  week or two, going from Enderby  to Victoria. In their year's residence in Enderby Mr. Hughes and  daughter made many warm friends  who wish them well in their new  field of labor.  Joe's ice cream sodas will make  you forget your troubles.  Vancouver has had a taste of "Billy" Sundae.   It-is  not-certain-yehwhelhci-theHike-the=crcamj!-subslanGe-  thc famous baseball cvan-  good  gathered under onc  or not.   Onc Ihing is certain,  gelist drew the largest crowd ever  roof in Vancouver, and the biggest in,Canada lo hear  anything in the way of a lecture or political speech.  The'famous "Billy" Sunday was listened to by no less  lhan 12,000 people, ancl lhe newspapers say" il was a  marvellous meeting in many respects.  Prior to the coming of the Rev. Dr. William Sunday  to Vancouver, there wasjiiojreorless protest on Ihe part  of ascertain section of lhe coast metropolis' society  against his coming, and an indignation meeting was  called lo permit some of the Simon Pure to tell how  indignant lhcy fell at the notorious "Billy" setting fool  upon lhe sterilized sidewalks of lhal virtuous city.  But somehow, after lhe people had gathered lo hear  the indignation bubble over, the chaste males who had  called the meeting, didn't have the nerve to gel upon  the platform and talk. The result was, lhat after sitting around for half an hour or so, waiting for the indignant virgins of male gender to say something, the  indignation meeting was turned into a recruiting meeting, and whatever indignation there was passed off in  these words published over his signature by .1. Francis  Bursill: "By permitting "Billy" Sunday to pollute the  city with his presence Vancouver has chilled the enthusiasm I have had for the city's advance. And I feel  that I shall not live long enough to see the art galleries,  the polytechnics, the swimming baths, etc., which Vancouver will have to build to atone for ils disgrace."  It is clearly apparent from this spasm by the purified Mr. Bursill that things are really serious in Vancouver. No doubt if "Billy" Sunday and his business  manager, "Ma" Sunday, had known there were such  high-strung, modest souls in Vancouver as the J. Francis Bursill, they would have avoided bringing to them  the sting of death that must cause their enthusiasm to  chill and die. But there are some thousands of other  Vancouverites who are not so thin-skinned, ancl 12,000  of them rather enjoyed hearing the clerical baseball  acrobat. If wc can believe the newspaper reports of  thc Prohibilion meeting addressed by "Billy" Sunday  it was as  -di-vine,^wJio,Vs.  his audience by  as a circus lo be there. Thc famous  an_.adcpLaiLJbrowi_ng_sIang, captured  his sensational acrobatic stunts in con  nection with what hc said. Il was nol his argument so  much as his other "ments" lhat swayed his hearers.  But they were .swayed. "Talk aboul regulating the  saloon," yelled "Billy," "you might as well talk about  regulating a powder mill in hell." "The saloons have  got our boys and girls so near lo hell," he continued,  "lhat wc can smell the fumes of lhc sulphur, and it is  no use Irving lo save Ihem with the Y. M. C. A. and the  W. C. T. U. and other means unless we first kill the  source of lhe trouble and wipe out thc trallic." And  then "I3illy" urged his hearers lo support the B. C Prohibition Acl, which specifically provides for Ihe manufacture and sale of liquor in the Piovinee in bulk, but  not by lhc glass.  Another Siuulayism which is used to show the power  of lhe liquor trallic for evil i.s this: "We've got kids  who have not yet sprouted long breeches who know  more about sin lhan Melhusaleh; there are Utile frizzle-  lop sissies not yet sprouting long dresses who know  more about vice than did Iheir great grandmothers,  when they were 75 ycars old." All of which proves  the power of the church, the schools, colleges, etc., and  the home life of our people in influencing lhe lives of  these "kids" and "sissies" who have been in their  training since infancy, ancl never have known the taste  of anything stronger than a soft drink.  Here are a few more Suntlayisms, which we think  you will admit are lurid if not complimentary: "The  damnable, hell-born, whisky-soaked, hog-jowled, rum-  soaked moral assassins have damned this community  long enough." "God likes a lillle humor, as evidenced  by lhc fact that he made lhe monkey, the parrot and  some of you people." "Thc bars of lhc church are so  low lhat any old hog wilh two or three suils of clothes  and a bank roll can crawl through." "I sometimes hear  a man say 'It's nobody's business howl live.' Then I  say he is the mosl dirty, low-born, whisky-soaked, beer  guzzling, bull-necked, foul-moulhed hypocrite that ever  had a brain rotlcn enough lo conceive such a statement and lips vile enough to utter il."  An illustrated lecture on the war  in France ancl Flanders was given  in the Enderby Opera House Tuesday evening by Mons. G. Marcel Andre, of Paris, France. Thc lecturer  was given a very responsive hearing ancl his burner and descriptive  talks in connection with the pic-  lures shown were greatly appreciated.

The man-was found asleep in  a havstack, and was brought lo  Enderbv, where he was detained by  Constable Bailey until Monday,  when he was laken to Sicamous by  a patrol squad'sent by boat to return him lo camp.

C. by the  overwhelming majority il has bad the past term  of ollice. U would not bc desirable if it were  quite possible. In these times, a-strong Opposition is a good Ihing for any Government, and particularly for Premier Bowser. The Premier is a  man who is nol al his best if unopposed. Me  fighls best when he has a slrong man opposing  him. But he wanfs no weakling or political  ward-heclcr on lhc lloor against him. Wc fully  expect lo sec Premier Bowser returned to power.  We do not expecL to sec him conic back wilh as  large a majority. Bul lhis is of little consequence  compared lo lhc larger question of having a  strong man at the head ol" lhc Government. This,  after all, is thc main issue. Premier Bowser has  been in close touch wilh Provincial business for  lhe past decade. It would be a serious loss lo  make a change al this lime. Thc following expression by llie Calgary News-Telegram voices  the impression of thinking men in connection  wilh Provincial political mailers:  "The News-Telegram will be surprised if lhe  Bowser administration docs not go back with a  -mibsl *u 11 li a H~n l; i j ori lyr^WcH m veH lea rd^a^good  many charges against Bowser and his colleagues.

"It has been especially1  bad in thc giving out of contract work." This  writer names over various contract deals which  have been made by thc authorities whereby the  Government has been "bled" by grafters. In the  omnibus deal he says thc War Ollice pays ������������������817,-  000 instead of ������������������98,000. "And," he adds, "there is  the quick-change liner, the Aquitania, converted  successively inlo an armed cruiser, a liner, a  transport, a hospilal ship, a liner,oand so on until  seven limes���������������������������each change lo lhe tunc of ������������������40,000."  There is, he says, a mania for "relurns," which  has cost the country millions of pounds, and he  say, it will cosl the country millions more.  Meanwhile, "Mr. Hayes Fisher, answering a  question in the Mouse on the subject of Civil Liabilities, said lhal there had been 52,137 applications,V)f which 11,833 had been granted���������������������������representing an annual payment of ������������������190,0-17, or an  average of (is. 2d. per week." Thc writer concludes wilh lhe remark: "II is nol a question of  any special commillcc or department being lo  blame. 11 is a question of outlook, il is a question  of sense of proportion. To thc contractor as much  as hc asks, to lhc soldier or lhe soldier's wife as  lillle as you dare."  This writer reproduces extracts from letters  from British soldiers a I the front which go lo  show lhat the hoys ih thc trenches are doing a  bit of thinking along wilh lhcir lighting: "Thimble-rigging and petty larceny appear 'respectable  by comparison wilh lhcir methods. . .

Anolhcr  writes from the trenches: "A lot of good men arc  being killed here for doing what is right, and I  think il would be a very good thing indeed if a  few died for doing what is wrong. They would get  short shrift ii" tried by a jury from thc trenches."  "When the boys come home," lhis writer says,  "and iind lhal lhe missus and lhc kids arc pinched  and pale, ('jusl a packet of bones, good Lord')  because Mr. So-and-So had lo make a fortune out  of milk or meal or bacon, when lhe boys come  home and find lhe house shut up and lhe missus  and kids gone lo lhe 'Lump,'-when thc boys come  home and lind lhc missus and lhe kids dead���������������������������  'murdered,' they will call it, in their rough way���������������������������  because things got so clear, lhere may bc trouble,  honest gentlemen, and lamp-posts will have an  ugly look."

WANT AND WASTE  A writer in thc London Daily Sketch calls attention to what he terms lhc "want and waste"  policy of lhe Brilish Government in the conduct  of the war. All wars mean want and waste, and  what lhis writer complains about is only what all  war governments have had lo face in limes of  slress and uncertainty such as lhe Empire faces.  This writer says the Governmenl had a bad lime  ol" il in the debate on Ihe Vote, of Credit for JM50,-  000,000. and he says lhe authorities deserved il.  "Our public services are always wasteful, but  since lhe outbreak of war lhe wastefulness has  Under the new laws providing for lending  money lo farmers, passed by the National Government of the United Stales, provision is made  for lhc establishment of twelve land banks where  farmers will be able lo borrow money on farm  mortgage security at a reasonable rale of interest  and lor relatively long periods. But the  basis of these banks is the co-operative organizations of farmers which will puss upon the credit  oi" those who seek loans. No farmer can borrow  unless he is a shareholder, and for lhis reason  many farmers will prefer lo borrow without investing in land hank shares. As a mailer of fact,  farmers in lhe Stales are already \veU_ supplied  wilh mortgages on reasonable terms. The insurance companies have $640,901,371 in farm mortgages at an average rale of 5.55 per ccnl. Thc new  law says lhat Federal banks shall not charge  more than (> per cent. The farmer will have lo  give the same kind of security he formerly gave,  and lhe new system will not make a good borrower oul of a poor one.  v  E. J.

Neve, who  was one of the first to answer the call for men,  says: "I quite realize that it is not all honey for  the man who remains at home to 'cary on' as  usual; still, even to a casual observer, one could  see mistrust entering the business world, especially when thc war developed into a serious  menace to thc British Empire. This lack of cooperation in small communities in times of  national crises, must create an atmosphere which  stagnates all business ventures, and the heavy  demands made on businessmen for patriotic purposes, must bc an added hardship when they can  least all'ord it. Still I believe there is a great  purifying force at work in Iht: world today which  will eventually bring in a saner civilization, and  we shall all feel better for having done our bit.  "1 expect you read an account of the King reviewing thc 4th Canadian Division on July 1st.  We belong to this division now.

The  Canadian artillery was splendid. As batteries  after batteries rolled by it made onc realize how  earnest thc Canadian people are to help crush the  peril that thc world is facing.. I tell you, I was  proud of Canada that day, and it. certainly impressed thc English people that Canada is a great,  country to be reckoned with in the near future.

Hc  spoke to me, as I was wearing my South African  ribbon, and wanted to know what unit I had  served with in that campaign.  "Since the big offensive began, I notice there is  really a greater feeling of confidence among the  people here; as it were, people are breathing  easier, and really believe we are gaining."  LEMKE-MANN MOTOR CO.  AS AMERICA SEES IT  Mr. W. J. Lemke returned to Enderby from  Bremerton, Wash., on Monday. It is Mr. Lemke's  intentions to close up his business relations with  thc Okanagan Saw Mills, Ltd., at an early date  and return to Bremerton, where he has entered  into partnership with Mr. H. G. Mann ih the purchase of a garage, and auto supply shop. Mr.  Lemke has held thc important post of chief accountant with the Okanagan Saw Mills ever since  the purchase of the mill and timber limits of the  company by Mr. A. B. Rogers, some ten years ago.  Hc has; been Manager Stevens' right-hand man  ������������������ since Mr. Stevens came tp .the mill, andas a citizen of Enderby Mr. Lemke has filled a niche particularly suited to one-of his versatile and trustworthy character. His place will be difficult to fill,  particularly in connection with his relations to  the public and patrons of the company. In connection with their recent purchase at Bremerton,  the News of that city says: "The garage and  auto supply shop of R. J. Oliver, on Washington,  has been purchased, by Wm. J. Lemke and H. G.  Mann,;recently of Enderby, B. C, and will be  operated in the future under thc name of the  Lcmkc-Mann Motor Co. While they have been  living for some time across the line, both are  citizens of the United States, Mr. Lciiikc coming  from St. Paul, Minn., and Mr. Mann from Buffalo,  N. Y., and state that they are glad to again be  under the Stars and Stripes. Both the new proprietors expect to establish themselves here permanently and to take an active part with their  families in the life of the community. During the  time that the ncw_building which is to replace the  A writer in Leslie's says: "The assurance of the  British Ambassador that the British blacklist was  not directed against neutrals and that neutrals  need have no fear about dealing wilh blacklisted  firms is an important concession, but docs not  dispose of the issue which the blacklist has raised.  The New York World points out lhat this assurance is rudely upset by a statement issued by thc  press of Valparaiso, Chile, by the British Consul  General at that place in which 'neutrals or allies'  arc warned against doing business with blacklisted firms in Chile. Thc New York Times says:  The glaring vice of thc blacklist is that it threatens something like a secondary boycott, involving  great injury to concerns not engaged in trade  with Germany, but chargeable only with having  trade relations with a blacklisted firm, which  again is not an offense.' "  Another writer says thc United States Government must get behind ils manufacturers and  bankers and do for them what thc British Government is doing for its own, and adds: "It is all  very well for American concerns to compete  among themselves at home, but existing laws  should bc amended to permit them to unite to resist trade war which seeks to make thc United  States its battleground, and whose first move is  revealed in thc British "blacklist" and blockade.  There should be no differences leading lo war between the United States and Great Britain. There  can-be differences, however, leading to trade reprisals, which will damage Great Britain more  than the United States, since this country might  easily dwell behind a tariff wall comptctely independent of all other nations, as wc produce,everything needed by our own citizens, whereas Great  Britain must be dependent upon outside help for  her foodstuffs, cotton and other raw products."

TIMBER RETURNS GOOD  The timber returns for June, issued by the Department of Lands, show that thc total scale of  sawlogs for the Province amounted to 120,023,-  869 ft. board measure, in addition to 375,905 lin.  ft. of poles and piles, and 28,840 cords of tics,  shingle bolts, etc. Thc sawlogs scaled in thc various Forest Districts include Vancouver, 78,439,-  270 feet; Cranbrook, 12,744,444 feel; Island, 11,-  333, 874 feet; Vernon, 7,339,997 feet; Kamloops,  4,938,074 feet; Nelson, 4,288,647 feet; Prince Rupert, 629,736 feet. 160,263 lin. feet of poles and  piles were scaled in thc Nelson District; 70,619  lin. feet Prince Rupert; 50,178 lin. feet Hazclton;  and 55,080 lin. feet in thc Vancouver district.  Of the ties, bolts, etc., 20,196 cords were scaled  in the Vancouver district, 5,225 cords in Cranbrook, and 2,289 cords in the Nelson division.  Timber sales recorded during June cover an  estimated total of 6,195,500 feet sawlogs; 19,800  lineal feet poles and piles, and 300 cords of bolts,  etc., to produce an estimated revenue of $10,209.

"Do it yourself," is the advice of a sage. "Think  out your own problems. Listen to advice, but decide for yourself.

Speaking of thc recent gain made by thc British  troops at Pozicres, a writer in the London Daily  Mirror says: The ground bought thus bit by bit  is like no other ground known on any planet. It  is Nightmare Land���������������������������on.surface and in depth a  dreadful region of ambush for humanity.

How vain  and light-headed thus now seems all that initial  talk about steam-rollers and 'sweeping on' and  being here, there or wherever it might.be 'in a  month' or 'a week' or 'a day'!

To the man of means who is accustomed to buy his liquors by the  bottle or case from the wholesale  store or retail shop, the Prohibition  Act means absolutely nothing, as he  can still order his supply from a  neighboring province or lhc Stales,  just as easily as in the pasl, the only  dilference being lhat hc will have  lo pay a higher cost, on account of  transportation charges.  To the worki'ngman, who is accustomed lo buy his liquor by the  bottle or glass, the Act means, however, something entirely dill'ereiil.  The ordinary workingman, is nol  given llie opportunity lo lay by  money sullicienl to provide for his  sending away for a case of liquor,  hence he is under a handicap  which does nol interfere wilh the  rich man.

Doors of Many Will Be Closed  if Prohibition Act is  Approved  What will become of the rural  hotel system of Brilish Columbia  should the Prohibilion Acl be approved by the electors? This question is not an idle inquiry. It does  not suggest a visionary problem nor  deal with a subject of little importance lo the Province. 11 is an actual  condition which must bc considered ancl every elector should give  the matter careful thought.  At present there is established in  British Columbia a chain of excellent rural hotels, covering the entire Province, as the Brilish Columbia license law demands that when  a permit i.s grunted lo sell liquor in  small quiintities thc licensee must  provide hotel accommodation of a  high standard for the travelling  public.  What is to become of these rural  hotels should the Prohibition Acl  pass?  Premier Bowser, on May 23rd,  1915, said "Experience has shown  that whal are known as Temperance Motels cannot bc properly  operated   when  denied  a  license."  Experience is a good teacher, and  in considering the case of rural hotels flic British Columbia elector  has not only Premier Bowser's  opinion bul also thc experience of  Manitoba, Alberla ancl Saskatchewan to guide him.  In Manitoba il has been found  lhat rural hotels cannot be operated  successfully without a license. To  meet Ihe conditions existing under  Prohibition, thc Government is now  proposing to grant a monopoly of  the tobacco and pool-room privileges to the hotels in.each district.  Of course, the tobacco dealers and  general stores arc objecting lo this  proposal, but the Government feels  that something must be clone io aid  the rural hotels of they arc to keep  their doors open.  In Saskatchewan the authorities  have adopted a system of financial  aid for rural hotels. During the last  six months of 1915, one hundred  ancl fifty such applications for aid  were made and $50,000 was granted  for the purpose, with a number of  cases still pending. . Despite this  aid. it is a well-known fact that thc  hotels of Saskatchewan are now  providing very inferior accommodation ancl charge a higher rale  than was the case before thc Prohibition  law  came  into  effect.  In Alberta, prohibilion has been  in force bul a month or so. Already, however.' the hotel proprietors of Medicine Mat have slated  that they will bc obliged to close  their doors, and similar reports are  coming from other sections of the  Province.
