He says there  is work there for every available  man, but the cold weather is making it impossible to get men. In  that district everybody is prosperous, he savs. He thinks, however,  that the peo"'e of the Okanagan do  in the way of climate, and that nobody can realize it until they get  out in the cold winds and snows of  oiher districts.

It/is a very peculiar Ihing abo.ul  thc newspapers of Canada: Today, when any man  is lhc popular idol, they can sec all kinds of virtues in him, and publish columns of balderdash  about him, and tomorrow, when the storms of  laic -have blown his hat off and he stands shorn  of o'llicial power, lhcy cock their weather eye  awry and Icll us'how"many "faults lhc man had  and has. In thc little squabble between Sir Robert  Borden and Sir Sam, closed last week by lhc resignation of the latter, each side has its case, and wc  arc permitted to judge between the Premier and  the Minister of Militia lhat was. Sir Robert tells  us that Sir Sam tried to run his ollice as if il were  independent of thc Government; Sir Sam tells us,  (not in words but between thc lines) that his task  was to get a certain Ihing done���������������������������to recruit, train,  equip and 'transport from Canada to England  some three or four hundred thousand troops, and  that if he waited lo lay everything before the Governments���������������������������Imperial and Dominion���������������������������before acting, the job would never bc done. So believing,  Sir .Sam tells us he overstepped red tape and proceeded to get the thing done. And because hc did  so, our newspapers, which only a few short moons  him, now tell us Sir  depletes Canada of her outstanding strong men.  Wc cannot recognize anything above llie mediocre in leadership, and when it docs appear il is  immediately assailed by men who themselves are.  nol above that class and object to others standing  in thc limelight.   Without going into lhe merit's'  of thc case, wc simply wishlo point out what Sir'  Sam accomplished in the past two ycars or more:  as Minister of Militia.   He is a Canadian of Can-"  adians." As anolhcr has said: "When history gels  a proper perspective it may well bc lhal lhis plain,}  direct,, democratic Canadian will appear as one of j  lhc Ihrcc or four chief men of the British Empire!  in thc Great War."   Sir Sarii is fearless, forceful!  and intensely human.   'His'-mistakes are on the  human side.   His successes���������������������������and they arc legion  ���������������������������are due to his tremendpus driving power\md  his foresight, combined with the magnetic quality  of leadership and his abhorence of red tape.   \\\ a  few weeks after the war started Sir Sam sent an  army of 30,000 Canadians lo England.   Since lhat  lime this number has been increased to more than  350,000,. and it will be one-half a million before  lhc plans laid down by Sir Sam arc completed.  Let us not disgrace the good name of Canada by  adopting the parochial fault of picking Haws in  thc administration of a leader who has done so  much "for thc Dominion and the Empire.

It seems lhat wc arc able,  only Lo go part way in the making of strong men  as leaders.   We press upon these men important  'tasks, and expect them .to do :thcm. -They have  never failed us., ' But. when lliey have done the  work, or while they arc doing ;it,- wc allow ourselves to become jealous of the power they wield,  ajid soon denounce them I'or taking upon themselves too much. Wc want thcm.lo lead but object  Id lhcir methods thc moment they begin to lead.  We make Ihcn'i leaders and all thc while expect  tlicm lo. come back lo us for daily orders.    We  arc nol large enough to let them lead.. When'they  attempt lo'do so wc, as a people, pullback, balk  ahd obstruct.

Wilh such a policy  ever before us, wc, as a people, can nol hope to  developc leaders of more lhan mediocre quality.  Men who have it in them to get above the medium  It wasn't so very long ago when lhc newspapers  li'scci lo poke fun at Kaiser Bill for having to put  his subjects on rations. When 'meal tickets' came  in ���������������������������Germany, and it became impossible for anyone  to purchase anything to eat without first having  obtained a ticket from the food dictator, wc were  told lhat tlie enemy was on llie verge of starvation  and could not hold out much'longer. Today thc  counlry of thc enemy seems to bc better prepared  to withstand the food blockade than wc ourselves  are prepared lo continue it. This is the result of  the ticket rations dictatorship. And England is  about Lo adopt thc plan long ago adopted by lhe  enemy countries. While it may seem harsh, and  will perhaps bring some hardship in ils wake, it  must eventually work as well for England as il  has operated in thc enemy countries. Fully a year  and a half ago, when the "wise heads" on lhe London stock exchange were providing enter tain men I  by burning the London Times iu public and denouncing its edilor, that paper Ihen warned England thai lhc stringent food measures adopted by  Germany were not a subject for scolling, but  rather onc that should occasion serious thought  oh thc part of thc Government and thc people. It  is only today that thc Government and the people  of England arc awakening to the real meaning of  thc warning then given. ' Thc days of scolling arc  pasl,. and lhe Empire is lhc better for it. When  England has to adopt the meal ticket it is proof  lhal she knows whal she is hi for. She will then  fight as she never has fought before. She will  fight with her back to the wall, and she will fight  to win, realizing to the full "thai she must exert  every effort in her*to check the inroads made by  thc enemy. V _,-      -.    '.

LO THE GROWING INDIAN  This paper has repeatedly referred to the shortcomings of our Canadian Indian policy, particularly insofar as it deals wilh'the general hcallh.  comfort and advancement of thai people. Our  Indian laws protect the Indians as lo their land  righls; bul further Hum lhis our Indian laws are  a farce when il comes to a .mailer.of protecting  lhe Indians or aiding Ihem in any line,of dc.veloj)-  menl. We turn Ihem loose upon- thousands of  acres of land where'lhcy would bo; vastly'hetfer  off with hundreds of acres 'properly tilled, and  lei Ihem alone. True, wc have our visiting superintendents of reserves and visiting Indian agents,  who gel around as frequently as opportunity will  permit. Bul further than, this, the Indian Department gives no assistance.,. The fact is, lhe Indians  have been looked upon, and so treated 'byiQiuirllfcr  dian laws, as a "dying race," and our policy has  heen one looking lo aiding them in lhe dying. Bul  the Indian is nn'i dying oil". It used lo be, "Lo the  Pool" Indian!" II is"now, "Lo the Growing Indian."  The American Indian can no longer be described  as the remnant of a dying race. Across lhe border in Uncle Sam's domain they long*since have'  recognized lhis fact, an(l"rhrcc years'ago thc Indian'Department began a vigorous campaign -to  better sanitary and hygienic condilions in Indian  homes.

Cyclist T. W. Robinson writes to the Enderby
Trench Comfort Club: "Please accept my most
sincere thanks for parcel of tobacco received
from you a few days ago. It certainly vyas a
pleasant surprise to me, and thc opportunity to
have a whitcman's smoke once more compared
favorably with thc varying moods of thc army
issue tobacco. I am sorry I was not able to write
sooner, but this life is not exactly conducive to
letter writing, and alloted periods for this are not
included in the King's rules and regulations, but it
would be a poor soldier who could not find some
few minutes to show his appreciation in some way
of the kindness of the home-town folksi It is such
acts as these that make us all the keener to do our
best out here for the great cause, and 'unity is
strength,' so if we all pull together it is the best
and quickest way to achieve our one and only aim,
wc doing our duty here and those at home making
it more comfortable by remembering us, so deprived of home comforts. I have bumped into
quite a number of the Enderby and Mara boys out
here, sometimes with a chance of a few minutes'
chat and sometimes just a 'halloo' and a passing
nod. Our chats mostly take the form of raking
up memories of past good times, and making ar-
rangments for others of the same in the future.
Hardly anything is said of the war���������in-fact, we do
our best to try to forget it. Our boys have certainly done some good work lately, but loss of life
is too heavy; ambulances return from the line one
after the other full up, and every few .hundred
yards is a row of little wooden crosses. . Itneeds
strong imagination "to forget there is-a war/on
even when out of range of the guns. ... I used
lo think I knew what 'mud' was, but find one.has
to live in it to really discover what the word conveys practically:

,rWe all remember how the chartered banks of
Canada gave liberally to the Canadian Patriotic
Fund the first year of the war. Perhaps.they are
continuing to give. We all remember, too, how
the rate of interest on short-term loans jumped
from 7 per cent to 8 and 9 per cent, and there was
a general reduction in the bank staffsto make up
the amounts given for patriotic purposes. A similar policy was followed all along the line, arid now
tlie Toronto World asks: "Does the Ottawa Government intend to stop the. wholesale gambling in
wheat? Are the bucket-shops to run with impunity, and are the telegraph and telephone companies to carry ,their messages ?   Are, men tto, be
allowed to combine for the purpose of unduly enhancing the prices of flour, wheat and bread? Are
cattle to be exported if there be not enough meat
in the countrv to feed our own people? Are thc
combinesters'to raise the price of beef and bacon
at will? Are they to use the cold storage facilities
of the country to create an artificial scarcity of
food, and then demand famine prices? Are greedy
and unscrupulous men posing as patriotic citizens
to inflict on Canada all thc hardships that the
British blockade has inflicted upon the people of
Germany? Can these men buy immunity from
prosecution by contributing to party funds or escape thc scourge of public indignation by giving a
Ismail percentage of their loot to patriotic funds?
Will sending a few socks or cigarettes to soldiers
atone for making thc wives and children of soldiers go through the coming winter half frozen
and half fed?"

The other day before a commission sitting in
Chicago to hear evidence relating to. thc high cost
of living, eight men were said to control the egg
supply of that city, which influences the prices all
over thc country. Their holdings were given as
over. 1,250,000 cases. Much of the evidence put
before the commission naturally applied to conditions there existing, but thc general facts relating to the manipulations of the middleman are
as applicable here in British Columbia as there in
Chicago. Henry D. Cogland, a Chicago lawyer,
who owns and operates a fruit and poultry farm
near Benton Harbor, Mich., gave some startling
facts to the commission.,
"I want to speak for the farmers," said he.
"This whole question of high prices is one of thc
combinations underlying. The middleman gets.
the money and the farmer gets less and less for
his produce each year. I have found that half a
dozen big operators control through trained
agents the poultry and egg business of the whole
United States. When the Michigan farmer ships
to South Water street he gets the so-called market
price, the price a pound, for his poultry regardless
of the fact that it may be fancy stock. For instance, a month ago that price was 14 to 17 cents
a pound. The same fowls were then 'regraded'
by the commission men as spring chickens, pullets and hens, and sold at fancy prices. If the
farmer graded them the same Way he would not
get any higher price. Before you have anything
like "just prices to,the farmer or the1 consumer you
have got to show up the commission man, who,
deceives his clients and buys their produce on his
own account instead of acting as their agent."
According to a"' comparative" report of the weather conditions for
October,-1915 and -1916, compiled
by Mr. Kenny, local weather clerk,
the month just, closed showed 18
clear days/against 7 for the same
month a year ago; "Eleven ' days
were part clear as compared to 15
for 1915, and only 2 were cloudy
against 9 for October, last year. The
nights, however, for, the past month
were colder than for the same
month a vear ago, there being, a difference of 252 degrees in the total
minimum temperature for the same
month in the two years. The rainfall for October, .1915, was 1.19
while that for last mbneh was only
.20. Following are.' the daily recordings for October, 1916:

Farm, at Silverton,  in the Slocan, is earning $25,000  net monthly. Some 12 or M years  ago this property was owned by a  British syndicate and, like many  another in Brilish Columbia at that  lime, was managed from London.  The'ore lies in a "blanket" ledge,  and when lhe ledge was worked  Ih rough by a shaft, instead of slaying with lhe ore, the orders were  cabled from London I'or thc miners  to "go 200 feet" in a certain direction "and sink." The.v did. so, ancl  from lhat day until Ihe properly  was picked ,up by American mining  men some*months ago, not a pound  of ore was shipped from it. Today  il is one of lhe big producers of the  Slocan. ��������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������'  UEUTSCHLANDoIIELD UP  Some nighls ago while the German sub merchantman was being  convoyed lo the open sea on her  return voyage lo Bremen," the convoy lug was swept acioss her bow  by an eddy and the submarine cut  by an eddy and a collision occurred  in which ihe tug and her crew were  sent to the bottom. The Dculscli-  land returned to New .'London for  repairs, andnow she is lied up in  a libel action brought-by the--owners * of the tug and relatives of the  men who were lost with the tug.  The company owning the Dculsch-  land must, put up bonds for $212,<-  000 before thc boat will be allowed  to get away.  FUR PRICES HIGH  ceited youngster   If we turn a deaf [  ear or ridicule the offer we shall j  hear that Germany's bad conscience |  has made us afraid to sland before j  a  judge���������������������������that   Germany's  rapacity;  dreads   that   a  just  judgment  will!  pull down the barriers.    If blind- j  ness started the world conflagration j  and mistrust let loose the furies, the j  verdict of a tribunal must end thc j'  mad   outburst.    The  guilt   can   be j  clearly proved and only on thc head f  of  ruling  persons and  not in the  wish or desire of the people who  were startled  one morning by thc  news   that   danger   threatened   the  home, hearth and family, and who  have since then succumbed to the  frenzy of war.   In that case let thc  ministers light out the feud as the  three   Moratii   and   Curiatii   settled  the quarrel hclwecn Home and Alba  Longa.    Let your manhood  return  from the bloody field to peace, and  let them dclibernleTirsl with the old  men of their own people and then  with the trusted representatives of  their  enemies  of  yesterday" as  to  how the deep wound on the breast  of mankind can be healed."  Harden believes that an understanding concerning preparedness  for. defence and concerning constitutional questions will be easily  possible after the horrors already  experienced, and he also believes  that the peonlc would soon resume  their normal conditions. Me says  thai many people are pointing lo  the Pope as being an independent  and impartial tribunal to whom Viscount Grey would bc willing to entrust the office of arbitrator.  A. B. Shubert, president of A. B.  Shubert, Inc., Chicago, the largest  house in the world dealing exclusively in American raw furs, is authority i'or lhe slalemenl lhal the  future is bright I'or the fur trapper  of lhis country, and lhat he will receive extremely high prices i'orhis  fur catch this winter. If the war  should cease and the markets'of the  world are opened to our Norlh  American furs, it. is no. idle dream  lo say that all previous high prices  for American furs would be far  eclipsed.  URGE GREY'S OFFER BE TAKEN  -Maxmilian Harden, in an article  entitled 'Preliminary Examination',  obviously suggested by Viscount  Grey's speech of a week ago, says  that'Germany stands to gain rather  than to lose by enquiring seriously  whether the time has nol come for  a change of her war policy and a  modification of Avar aims.  "Listen!" says lie, "ft is a statesman   who  speaks  and   not  a   con-   returning veterans."  Urges Follow Canada's Example  The London Daily Chronicle, the  leading Liberal journal of the Imperial capital, gives prominent  place in its- issue of Ocl. 4th, to a  lengthy appreciation of Canada's  method of restoring disabled soldiers to active and self-supporting  citizenship, and the writer, J. Saxon  Mills, goes so far as to suggest that  the Mother Country in dealing with  this problem might follow the example of the Dominion. Aflcr  giving in detail the general character of the work, the writer concludes: "What I wish especially io  emphasize is that at all these hospitals, schools arc held where training of an elementary and non-  vocational character is given in  English. French, mechanical drawing, arithmetic, Avocd-carving. elc.  These classes* are open to ail inmates, whether they are able io return to their former occupations or  not. Bul, from these homes' and  hospitals, the men who arc not so  able can lie sent on. after they have  been pensioned and discharged, "to  technical institutions, agricultural  colleges, schools of telegraphy, etc.,  where they can be taught new occupations which lhcir disablement  does "not prevent them from following.

Admiral Beatty's words are displayed prominently: 'Until a religious revival takes place at home,  so long will the war continue' They  are followed by Gen. Sir Wm. Robertson's message: 'A serious determination on thc part of the nation  lo seek Divine help would undoubtedly furnish valuable help to our  soldiers ancl sailors." The poster  ends with the following words  printed in large type: 'Will you join  those who, every day at noon, and  at the family prayers al home, pray  for our country, our sailors and our  soldiers?'"
