"It would be wrong to believe  that the great body workingJ for  peace is composed of pacifists.  The professional pacifists are doing little now,. They-think it unnecessary and that it would injure the movement if they identified themselves prominently with  it. ��������������������������� '���������������������������".  "Every speech the European  statesmen are making these days  shows.that they;, teo,_. are..modifying their views *' and 'that  the leaders are ��������������������������� letting the  people down by degrees. This is  apparent m the Kaiser's last  utterance and in Mr. Lloyd-  George's anniversary speech, but  events are moving so rapidly  that the leaders are finding it  difficult   to keep up the pace.  "It must be remembered that  Europe has had three years of  war, that millions of men have  been killed' and wounded, that  the munition workers, men and  women, have labored as never  before,, that life has become infinitely complex,J;hat few promises of 1914 have been fulfilled  even in 1917, and that no government can long survive unless it  "showsHsuccesses;  erous'support accorded the movement by the Canadian Bankers' Association, affords a practical demonstration of the attitude of the  banks towards the live stock industry, ancl the active participation of the association in this campaign is bound to strengthen and  create general interest in farm  live   stock.

Mary Pickford is the highest  paid film actress before the public,  and her portrayal of the character  "The Foundling" was superb. It  was worth the price of admission  a dozen times over to sec her in  "But the great change in the  last two months does not mean  peaca unless it is a peace which  the people consider honorable.  There are few quitters in Europe.  The people have sacrificed too  much to fear sacrificing more if  they consider it necessary. It is  not because Europe .fears another winter so'greatly that it is  inclining, toward peace. The  people, that is the Socialiats,  Labor, and a lot of others, want  to exhaust all the possibilities of  negotiations before they decide  that they must fight further."

What the Wur is Costing Canada  According  to   a   statement   just  issued, ^Canada's.wajy expenditures  to July 20th, 1917, total $023,000,-  000, including estimated amoujnt  of upkeep of troops in France.  The net debt of Canada on July  20th was $851,000,000. The present rate of war expenditure per  day in Canada and abroad by Canada, is $850,000.

These competitions arc known  as the "Canadian Bankers' Competitions," ancl arc linked up with the  activities of the Live Stock Branch  of the Dominion Department of  Agriculture. They represent an  effort lo increase interest in live  stock, and constitute a part of the  active campaign for more and  better stock inaugurated and carried on by the Hon. Mr. Burrell  through his department. The gen-  En lire   Stock   Packed   for   Im-  mediale Shipment lo Coast  One of lhc largest mercantile  deals on record has just been con-  sumated between M. l-enz and associates of Vancouver, and S. H.  Speers, of lhc Polson-Speers Company, whereby the Consolidated  Merchandise Brokers have taken  over lhc entire stock of Enderby's  leading slorc. Mr.Speers, on being  interviewed by a representative of  The Press, stated that unsettled  conditions in the eastern markets  was the main factor in forcing thc  decision to sell out and quit.  ft will be a great blow to the  many hundreds of patrons of this  well-known store that the stock  should be shipped without a public sale by the purchasers, as the  Consolidated Merchandise Brokers  are known lo cut prices radically  on all big stocks. Mr. Speers is  undecided as to Ihe future and will  remain in Enderby for lhe present.  Our stock of binder's twine is  now in.    Fulton Hahdwahi; Co.  Military Y.M.C.A.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 1917 -  PREVAILING PRICES  While Hour has sold for sonic time for $12.50  per barrel, and continues lo stand firm at that  price, Vancouver dealers report an ever increasing market i'or i'ceds, particularly bran, shorts  and corn. Corn, in fact, has climbed to such  dizzy heights lhal coast dealers have practically  ceased importing. The latesl price quoted- is  $92 per ton i'or corn laid down at Vancouver,  which would mean a price of $100 per ton, or $5  per sack alter cleaning and sacking was done.  Few buyers will pay this price and are turning  lo barley as the substitute containing the next  best food value. Shorts are laying down at thc  'coast al $-14.50 per ton, as against a price ol*  $20 lo $30 in normal ycars.  There is an abundant hay crop in British  Columbia and Alberla, and the price lor new  hay is lower lhan the opening price ol* last year.  Farmers are reported to be getting Irom $14 lo  $10 according to quality, while jobbers are selling  to Teed dealers al about $18. New hay is being retailed in Vancouver at $21 and $2l The bay crop  in lhis section of the Okanagan Valley never was  ol' a finer quality, and is commanding lhe highest  price.  Sugar made another jump llie pasl week of 25c  ���������������������������irVtIt;crpriccVcjCVTl l^gTaclcsVljri TTgiTTg-llie-pricenTp  lo $9.-10 in 100-pound sacks, and making a new  high record, 45c above thc previous week's price.  In this one word "supremacy" is bound up all  the causes that led up to the present great world  war and all great Avars of the past, and will lead  to all great wars of the future.   Jealous of Great  Britain's supremacy of the seas, Germany essayed  to break it by organizing the greatest war machine on land lhc world has ever known.    To  break this machine known as "militarism" the  othcr powers of thc world are now fighting.   If  they succeed lhis great power, recognized as a  menace lo the world, will be banished, for one  hundred ycars at least.    Bul we shall still have  the greatest war machine on waler lhat lhc world  has even seen.   Wc, as British, believe this is as  it should be.    Unfortunately, this opinion is nol  shared by all peoples.   In fact, fully one half the  world believes thc Brilish navy is as much a, menace to world peace as we believe German militarism To be.   The fact that history proves most  conclusively that there is little ground i'or so believing does not alter the fact.   And if this has  ���������������������������jc!! the ease in the past and is the case today, it  would certainly bc the case if the suggestion of a  writer'in the United Empire for June were put  into ell'eel.   He proposes that a commercial union  shall be formed of all British colonics and the  :dother .Country, and that .aTariff shall bc placed  on all merchandise and other commodities from  countries outside this commercial union.    This  tariff shall be levied and collected by thc Imperial Government and shall be independent of  ���������������������������Ii other revenues.   This writer proposes that the  tariff i-hall. be* for the specific purpose of maintaining the British navy.    "We know," says he,  that the "future of the Empire, thc future of civil-  nation, the future of the world, indeed, depend  jn lhe supremacy oi" the British navy."   "First,"  "ie concludes, "wc ncH a ^asi svslcm of imperial  ���������������������������references lo bind lhc Empire together and t  make every part more prosperous; and, secondly,  wc need a great revenue for the navy, and for imperial defense.   Why should not these two needs  suonlv solutions each for thc othcr?"  Unquestionably this argument and this proposal arc perfectly logical from an Imperial point  of view. But how would it effect thc colonics���������������������������  how would it effect Canada? And what effect  would it have on "thc end of all war," and "world  peace," which wc have heard so much about in  recent months? Every tariff imposed by onc  country or combination of countries against another country, or combination of countries,  means a tariff imposed by the other country or  combination of countries to offset the tariff first  imposed. One tar ill" always brings another from  thc othcr wav, and the consumer is caught be-  Your Range Should Have  ���������������������������a dependable oven, a good warming  closet, a durable and ample-sized  firebox, easy-working grates, simple  draft control and a finish that requires  but little attention to keep clean.

And when a tax  is imposed on countries outside thc proposed  commercial union, for military���������������������������or navy���������������������������purposes, it is certain to create resentment, and the  "world peace" yearned for by all peoples would  bc morc of a myth than an actuality.  Are you going* to do any  Building- or Repairing-  This Season ?  THE COWARDICE OF DESPAIR  A UNION GOVERNMENT  Premier Borden has striven hard to bring into  his govmimenl men of thcopposition ranks and  men ol* no particular party affiliation, lie has  tints far failed. They seem to bc playing politics  pretty strong al Ottawa, and thc Liberal leader,  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, slill holds the top hand. But  Sir Robert Borden has not given up. In an address a few evenings ago he said:  "The responsibilities entailed upon  lhe leader  of a counlry such as ours' and under the conditions which have prevailed during lhe pasl lhree  years, are extremely onerous, more so lhan could  be realized  by anyone  who has nol  striven   to  lulfil   Ihem.     Bul.   however   severe   and   overpowering. Ihey must be fulfilled lo the limit of  strength and eapacily.   Like lhe men in the Irenches. a minister under such conditions .musl re-!  main al his posl until he is granted an honorable j  discharge.    IL  has become  morc and  more ap-l  pa re n I  during recent  months  that parly differ-!  ences musl be sunk, and all forces united in the  eli'ort lo win this war.    ...    I hope, lhat in lhe!  near future a government may be formed, based  upon a union of all persons, irrespective of parly,  race   or   creed,   who   believe   that   the   struggle  which we now wage i.s for lhc cause of justice,  who realize  lhal il involves the destiny of our  Dominion, of Ihis Empire, and even of the world,  and who. pulling aside all differences of minor  .significance, are prepared lo join in a uniled and  determined eli'ort lo Ihrow into the conflict the  full power and strength of lhe Dominion."  These are Irving times. Thev need not bc.  Man has brought thc sorrows and thc tribulations  upon himself. And man, alone, can lift them.  He can return lo normal. It is the abnormal condition of man himself that is working out. As  we work through the mist of bungling wc begin  to see the bright*sunlight of reason. If you are  miserable and unhappy where you arc you cannot  become happy by going to anolher town or state.  You have to carry yourself with you. You have  troubles? So have wc all. But what of it. No  TfTaftcFwIiirt your troubles arc, a year, a monthT  may scatter them and leave you wilh new hope  and new interest in life. Bc slrong. Believe in  yourself, in your right to a useful, happy and  successful life. If the white Hag is run up you  must do it yourself. Many men have been in  poverty and despair and have risen out of them  to power {ind usefulness afterward. Trust in the  invincible force of your own,divine soul, and believe the Angels of Light who hear the cry of despairing ones on earlh will strengthen .you. The  way will and must open for you. The world  needs you or you wouldn't be here.

He declared  if all did their duty no one would  starve, but if it became a question of hunger at home or at the  front, the boys in the trenches  would not be allowed to suffer.  Mr. Hanna said he would waste  no time in coaxing but would exercise the drastic powers bestowed upon him by the government.  In regard to hotels,  restaurants,  etc., he said he would have an  important  announcement by the  end of the week.   To the young  men he  said  the best way to  serve their country was by-eating  their meals at the front.   Mr.  Hanna also announced that he  would not hesitae to fix prices if  necessary.

A timber merchant was sitting  in his office���������������������������one day. musing  sadly over the general depression  in the wood trade, when a quiet-  looking young man entered.  "Do you sell beech wood?"  asked the stranger.  "Yes, sir," replied the merchant, rising with alacrity and  and hoping devoutly to book a  large order; "we.can supply any  quantity on the shortest notice,  either in the log or. the plank."  "Oh, I don't want so much as  that." said the youth, shifting  his feat uneasily. "I just want'  a bit for, a fiddle bridge.

Frugality,   woman instincts   of  love for home, an eye to the best  interests of her husband and the  careful training of her children  these are the traits which make  the good wife and which young  men look for in girls they meet.  Men   may give the impression  that they do not care for common  sense in their sweethearts,  but  there is nothing they so unfailingly   demand   in their wives.

Men and Things as Seen Thro' Hank Reklaw's Periscope  Too generally thc press of Canada is disposed  to accept the misleading slogan of "Let's finish  thc war first before discussing after* the war problems."   Frequently-weseethisthoughtjexpresscd  in our Canadian exchanges.   We believe this position is most false to Canada's best interests. .If  wc read into' the delightfully optimistic diplomatic ultcrenccs of thc statesmen of England  and Germany, Russia and France, and the othcr  allies  of each side, something more  than  the  schoolboy clap-trap with which these statements  arc clothed, we begin to realise that right now  general terms are being laid down which shall  bottom future negotiations with regard to peace,  and that now, while thc fighting is in progress, is  thc time when every loyal  thinking Canadian  should give his and her best thought to the proper  solution^of thc great problems confronting us.  If wc quietly submit,  colonial-like,  to  having  these problems settled for us by men across the  seas, without our having an understanding of thc  arrangement and knowing what to expect from  its ultimate working out, we arc almost certain  ^to^rua^thc_day,=for-^wc^shall==find_ourselves-ticd^  too   tightly  in   the   colonial   swaddling-clothes  which have already hampered   us   beyond   all  reason.  While it is true thc spokesmen for thc various  governments engaged in thc war, have failed so  far to rcacli any common basis from which to  start negotiations looking to thc ending ol* thc  war, nevertheless, there arc numerous indications  that both sides arc jokcying for position, and  each is so shaping thc public statements as to  make them read good al home and thus make  thc people of each of thc fighting empires believe  that their side is winning.    ���������������������������  Doctor Michaclis, speaking for thc Central  Powers, practically says to the Entente Govcrn-  , mails that Germany has endured three years of  warfare; that the Central Empires have not had  the worst of it, and thai they arc willing and  able to continue the fight as long as the Entente  Allies desire. He  Allies feci that Ihey  many and Austr"  way, and plainly intimates that the Central En>  pires are more than willing to sit in conference  with representatives of the Allied governments  and the United States in an effort to negotiate  peace. On the other hand, Lloyd-George's reply  is practically a declaration that Great Britain is  able and willing to continue to fight as long as  Germany desires. To this declaration, Lloyd-  George adds the warning that if the war is prolonged long enough, the assistance of America  will enable the Allies, finally to conquer the Central Powers. Each of these government leaders  naturally insists that the result of the -military  and naval operations, so far, has been in favor of  the alliance which he represents, and each "insists that the other's blockade has been a failure,  and that his own people have not only enough  to eat, but are, in fact, over-provided.  ��������������������������� These statements, as wc all must recognize, are  only half true: They do not convey thc real conditions in either country. But what they do indicate is this: That each side is trying to force the  other.to show its hand, and that neither is yet  prepared to cry enough. They arc, however, trying to find a basis upon which they can open  negotiations. These peace talks at long distance  are prelimary. They are certain to lead to  closer contact.  In Canada, are wc, in our home affairs, and in  our outlook upon the future, arc wc shaping up  in a large, non-political way, a Canadian policy  that would enable our representatives to go into the  peace conference that is certain to come, with  something'that would be a credit to Canada and,  in a measure at least, express to thc world something worthy for which we stand? If wc do not  prepare now, while thc war is on, to place ourselves in a position that will command a hearing,  our representatives will certainly bc placed at a  disadvantage. Ancl all they can do will bc to,  parrot-like, voice thc opinions of the shrewd diploma ts^6f-Englandr.who^no w^lfrbk^pffirCaTratliT  only as a cwiony, lo bc played us a pawn in the  raiiic of world chess. Ii' our leaders at Ottawa  were to l.'-avc today on a misr.j,n to a world peace  congress, they would not, could not, carry with  them the spirit, the voice, of Canada. They  would bc simply pawns in lhc hands of the England's masterful players in the game of European  politics���������������������������the game that has kept the world al war  for centuries.

Death is said to  have been due to Bright,s disease, from which he hacUbeen suffering for several years.  Sir Richard,, McBride was the most outstanding Premier British  Columbia has had. He held office of chief minister fromV903 until  the autumn of 1915, when he resigned to go to England as agent-  general, being succeeded at Victoria by W. J. Bowser, who for  several years had been associated with him as attorney-general.  One of the reasons actuating Sir Richard in the decision to go to  London was failing health; he hoped to obtain an improvement  there, but it was soon apparent that if anything, his condition was  worse. A few months ago his physicians advised him to come  back to British Columbia, and while the recent session was in  progress in Victoria he resigned from the position of agent-general  with the announced intention of returning to the Pacific Coast.  The body of Sir Richard McBride, will be cremated in London  and' the ashes brought to British Columbia for burial. Lady  McBride and family hope to leave London for Canada at the end of  this week, says the Vancouver Province.  Although Sir Richard has been seriously ill for several months  the announcement of his death, which came in* private cables, was  a great surprise.* All along it had been expected by his army of  friends in British Columbia that he would be able to return to the  province and would here recover his heath. Many anticipated  that he would enter federal politics at the next election, in which  event it was supposed that he would be given a place in the federal cabinet.
