THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1917  RUSSIA IN A TURMOIL.  Thc republic ol* Russia is said lo be in danger  now. The stocks oP the ���������������������������revolution are on the  decline and lhc Radicals I'ccl it and know it, hence  lhcir sudden demand I'or the establishment ot* a  republic, a matter which was taken for granted  by Ihem, but three months ago. Hence the anil uUnion I ol* Iheir much-advertised doctrine lhat  all fundamental questions of state should bc settled by the constituent assembly.  These Radicals have opposed the granting of  independence lo Poland on the ground that it is  a fundamental problem which can bc solved only  by the constituent assembly.   Now thc very basis  is gone from under their feet, if they violate lhcir  own doctrine at home why should lhcy not allow  thc   Finns   lo  violate  il   in   lhcir  country?  The extreme demands of the Bolshcviki or Maximalists and their increase in power is concrete  proof of the rise of the opposing tide, that of conservatism and  reaction-    The violation of principles originally proclaimed by them as their articles of faith, is an unmistakable sign lhat the  perils of the revolution are multiplying daily and  iminlcrruptcdly.  According   lo  latest  reports   from   Petrograd,  ;IVwers 01  Bolshcviki, extremists and opposed  Germany is in the anomalous position of wanting peace and fearing it at the same lime. What  she fears is an economic boycott when the war  is over. Thc economic conference of the Entente at Paris did not greatly disturb Germany,  for at that time the United States, lhc South American countries and China-were all neutral, and,  as such, good prospects for future trade. But  with practically all of this area now arrayed  against her, where will Germany look for much-  needed raw materials when thc war is over? Dr.  Dcrnhurg, ex-German Colonial Secretary, enumerated some of the economic problems the Central Powers1 would have' to face after the war at  a conference lasl June of the combined Economic  Associations.of Germany, Austria and Hungary.  He pointed out lhat Germany would not be able  to demobilize her army until piaccs in industry,  had becn found Tor the men, and that positions could nol be found until raw materials had  been obtained for industries. Nor would Germany be able to establish her foreign exchanges  unlil able to export goods. Dr. Dcrnburg then  assumed lhat "universal necessity" would compel  thc dropping of the boycott provided by the resolutions of the Paris Conference. The London  Spectator, asks, however, "Shall we not rather  first have regard to the needs of our friends, and  let those of our late enemies���������������������������after the war���������������������������  take care of themselves?" In his reply lo thc  Pope, President Wilson said, "Wc deem inexpedient, and in the end worse than futile, thc establishment of selfish and exclusive economic leagues." "But," asks Leslie's, "will. America, which  has not suffered, and probably will nol suffer j as  have its Allies, bc able lo swing them lo this altruistic position?"  ;ange  The Kootenay has a nickeled steel,  rust-proof oven that is as easy to wash  and keep clean as any cooking utensil.

Representations bv Ureal Brilain admit lhe  right ol" this government lo take over lhe ships lol  accelerate their construction, bul claim lhal Iheir1  operation under the American flag will nol con-;  slilule a war emergency, but ralher "Ihe laking;  advantage of lhe stale of war lo obtain trade ail--,  vantages al   lhe expense  of  a  friend  and ally.";  Public opinion is in favor of the view laken by;  'he V'ippim- B'jnrd.    Thai Board is responsible i  for ship control  iu connection   wilh   America's  part in lhe prosecution of the war.    It i.s pointed  out lhal in supplying American forces a I lhe front;  lhis government has a combined stretch of (i,000,  miles to cover, far beyond lhal of any Ally.   This  il considers a "war emergency" in  the strictest;  sense.    11 does nol propose lo fail in meeting il.  Wc had last week from Lord Hugh Cecil and  Mr. Balfour proclamations of the divine right of  a select circle to control our foreign affairs and  lo conduct them in secret.    We have This week  two pieces of evidence which  lest lhc working  of lhc system which these eminent'men-would  rivet on our necks for all time.   The first is the  German Chancellor's history and description of  the secret treaties entered into by thc Allies.   All  lhis is new lo the great mass of the English people, but the Gcrman government, at least, is satisfied,  that Allied  diplomacy failed  lo keep its  secrets from  the enemy, however successful in  keeping them from the .<\Ilicd peoples.   II will bc  remembered lhat the Gcrman government learnt  all about The secret Russo-Frcnch treaties of. lhis  year, and Thai il was fully informed as lo lhc  secret agreements and arrangements entered into  bv thc Entente Powers before Lhc war.    Secret  diplomacy, therefore, seems lo keep no    secrets  from those against whom it is supposed to bc  directed; it is effective only against the peoples  for whose benefit it is supposed to be practised.  The second piece of evidence is contributed by The  Greek Whilcbook.   According to this Whitebook,  as early as August 4, 1014, M. Thcotokis,  the  Greek Minister at Berlin, was informed that on  lhat day an alliance had been concluded between  Germany and Turkey, that the German warships  in ��������������������������� lhc Mediterranean were lo join the Turkish  fleet, and. lhal Bulgaria and Roumania were a;lso  laking their stand by thc side of Germany.   According lo our own Whilcbook il was not till the  end of October  that  the Allied diplomacy discovered lhat Turkey was definitely committed to  Germany, and. as we know, the admiralty never  suspected lhal thc 'Goehciv and the 'Brcslau' were  making I'or Constantinople.    The German  govern men Vmay. of-"courses have been, lying to TV1.  Thcotokis, bul all lhe evidence points the other  wav.    Here, then, we have, the great engine of  Allied diplomacy unable lo discover a momentous  fuel in the policy of a counlry notorious for corruption.    Brilish diplomacy persists, however, in  claiming I'or itself a monopoly of all power in the  region of foreign alfairs and a complete immunity  from  investigation  and criticism.    Thai, of  course, is nol surprising.   Whal does surprise is  lhal parliament and the nalion have not yet been  fired by a long succession of revelations of incompetence lo shatter a system as inefficient as il is  fatal lo self-government.

������f Parablf of t!if ������ifunii)if
By an Unknown Scribe
It came to pass in the latter days
that the Lord God sent great prosperity on the earth so that there was
abundance, and to spare, of all
good things to be desired by man���������
Also knowledge was greatly in-
.creased, that men might travel by
land, and sea, and air. The good
things' from one part of the earth
were quickly transported to other
parts and there was plenty for all.
But the eyes of men were full of
greed, and they said: "Let each
take all he can, for -we know not
how long these good things may
last, and peradventure, some day
we may be in need."
So each man labored to accumulate for himself, regardless of how
his neighbor fared, and as day by
day thc Lord showered good things
about, so day by day all men
scrambled to sec who should gather
the most.
So it came to pass that those who
were weak and infirm were worsted
in the scramble, and could obtain
but little; for whenever there was
most to be found the strong men
entrenched themselves so that the
weak must needs be satisfied with
the littl,e that could be picked up
on thc outside.
So, also, "little children /were
crowded and crushed and those few
who tried ^to protect them also had
but little of the good things of life.
And the struggle daily grew worse
until very few'thought of anything
else than how to gain an advantage
over others in the scramble.'
Then the strong men, when they
saw that the struggle was continually growing greater, said one.: to
another, "Let us form ourselves into
companies. So shall we be able to
fight against others who struggle
with us, and thus may wc secure
yet greater gains." " ������
--. This they, did, and so the weaker ones 'were forced, tb.be content
wilh less and less of the good things
which tlie Lord God had so bountifully provided. And little-children-
> and old men and women fell down
and were trampled in fhe scramble
and many were killed daily."
Still the strong men continued to
strengthen themselves so that thc
belter lh< y might scramble for more
and more. , **"
Also they hired tho������e who were
una Me to scramble for themselves
to work for them and said "You
shall scramble for us and we will
not light against you, 'but half of
what'you gather shall be ours."
And daily the condition of. the
weaker ones on the outside grew
worse' and worse so that very many
perished and many more were :in
absolute want.
Then some of those j who were
able to obtain sufficient for them-
-selves-=sai d :-=-5LWe_niust-d6_some--
thing for those on tho outside. We
will give them some of what we
gather for charity."
And they did so, and were, therefore obliged to struggle the harder
to obtain enough for both.
Seeing this, they appealed to the
strong men who were able to gather
so much, but they replied that the
fault lay with those who had nothing. "For," said they, "if they but
did but scramble morc and be content with less, they would then have
So those on the outside tried more
and more to gather from his neighbor, but'because of the power of the
Strong men there was less and less
to be got and thc struggle only grew
worse.   *
Then some few of the strong men
abundance that we have to the
ones in need, but those who work
for us must be content with less
and must strive to gain even more
so that wc may still have plenty.
So the struggle waxed fiercer and
fiercer in the center and many perished daily; while more were satisfied but each regarded his neighbor
with suspicion. '
Then those who suffered most
cried unto the Lord in their trouble
anl said: "What have we done thah
these things should come upon us?
Save us I We pray thee, or we perish."
And the voice of the Carpenter
of Nazareth came to them saying:
"Have I not'told you to seek first
the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all these things that
ye now fight for shall bc added
unto you?"       ' ������
And they answered: "These two
thousand years have we sought it in
vain. What is the Kingdom of
And once more the voice came to
them saying: "The Kingdom of
God is the Brotherhood of Man.
Cease striving each one to gain for
himself. Make no more yourselves
into companies to fight one another."
bul join.you all into one band and
let each work for thc good of all.
So shall the Kingdom of God bc
with you and there shall be abundance for all"
And these things sounded good to
them and they spoke thus to all the
But the strong men, and those in
authority would not listen to them.
"Sir," said' they, "this thing has
always been so. Our fathers
scrambled, as we do, and their
fathers before them, so it must always be."
"Moreover," said they, "God is on
our side, he has put power into
our hands and we will keep it so."
Then the Lord God was -angry
with the people and rebuked them,
saying: "With your own weapons
will I destroy you; so shall ye see
that I am God, and these suffering
ones are my people."
So he caused the struggle to be?
come keener and fiercer and there
was continual warfare and strong
men were.obliged to organize great
armies to defend themselves, and by
day and night the bands fought on
with each other and the earth was
full of strife and trouble.
And so it came :,to pass that the
scramble which at first was only between man ancLman became a struggle between nations, and the whole
world was involved in.war.
And the strongmen, and those in
authority said: "Let us organize all
our bands and companies together
and* lef those .who have been alone
in the scramble also come with us
and together we will fight." And
this appeared good to the people,
and they did so, and all fought" together,, not with thought ofspersonal
gain, but with willingness to give
and sacrifice.
And the spirit of Brotherhood
was more in evidence in the time
of war .than it had been in time of
But still the awful struggle continued, and thousands���������even millions���������on, either side laid down
their lives.and the end was not in
sight. ( .
Then the people of all nations
cried in their agony to the Lord
Pod and said: "What shall we do
to end this evil that "lias come upon
And the voice of the Lord came
to them, saying: "This thing-has
come upon you because of your selfishness and foolishness. What ye
would not learn in time of peace
the war has taught you. Cease to
scramble among one another, but
organize for peace as ye have or-
organized for war. So shall the
cause of war bc abolished and ye
shall find the way to peace���������and
righteousness shall cover the earth
as thc waters the sea."
And the people harkened to the
word of thc Lord God, and in humbleness and contrition sought to
obey his word.
And' it came to pass that as they
labored long and earnestly to eliminate all strife from among them-
"We will give part of "the!8*1���������8 tha,1 the Lord God P���������8^���������*
them and peace came���������first between man and man���������and finally
between nation and nation.
And,the blessing of God was on
the whole world, for thc scramble
was over.
It is not pleasant and profitable
to always tell the truth in a newspaper. Editors who have tried it
generally come to grief. A few
weeks ago an editor grew tired of
being called a liar, and announced
that he would tell the truth. Thc
next issue of his paper said:
John McCracklc, the laziest merchant in town, made a business trip
to Fort St. James.
> The pastor preached last Sunday
on charity. The sermon was punk.
Half the congregation slept through
it all.
David Dawson died at his home
this morning. The doctor says it
was heart failure, but we all know
how Dave would booze.
Miss Sadie Hatt sang in the village choir Sunday night. Her voice
was not unlike a fog horn. Thfc
fellow that told Sadie that she could
sing ought to be burned at the

Rev. Sty preached last Sunday
night at the Christian church. His
sermon was punk and uninteresting, except some stuff he quoted
from Bob Ingersoll, for which he
failed to give Bob any credit. He
also recited a few passages from
Munsey's sermons and had the gall
to palm it off as his own.
Dave Chartiei\ died last night.
Dock Holderness was with him
when he croaked, and, gave it out
that Dave' died of heart failure.
That is a lie. Dave died from too
much poor mail order licker. This
paper tells the truth.

at Willow Grove, died this week,
and was buried by the Elks on
