It is sometimes said 'that there is  no sentiment .in 'business,*:but it is  time that, in these; days particularly, sentiment plays a very large  part in business. And when seiti-  i.nent tends to draw allied nations  still closer together it is, perhaps,  the very best kind of business.

TJ-1URSDAY, 0(7, OBER 18, 1917  PREMIER BORDEN WINS  ' 11* ever a leader pul up a slrong and unceasing  light that leader is Sir Robert Borden, premier  ol' Canada. For months he lias labored almost  day and night to bring about a Union Govern-  tment lo carry on the war, and thus, avoid an  acrimonious political campaign al this serious  lime in lhe Dominion's history. Hc has met opposition from men wilhin his own party, and almost a lolal refusal from men on the Opposition  to have anything lo do with it. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, Thc Liberal leader, refused lo come into  such a cabinet. He fell that hc could not accept  lhe dictum ol* conscription without first going lo  thc people, and, so believing, he did not icel inclined lo join Sir Robert.  Only a week or morc ago Sir Wilfrid Laurier  tendered his resignation as leader of thc Liberal  parly. This opened lhe way for Premier Borden  and lhe prominent Liberals favorable to the  Union Government idea, and they lost no time in  getting togelher' on a "fifty-fifty" basis. Sir  Robert announces the retireinent of six of his  party colleagues in order to make room for the  Liberals: who are to enter the Union Government  with Premier Borden at its head. Those retiring  are lion. Frank Cochrane, Hon. Sir George Pcr-  lcy, Hon. J. D. Hazen, Hon. W. J. Roche and Hon.  T. -W, Crothcrs.   -3  The people demand that-the mails - shall be  carried on Sunday trains. Mails are made-up on  Sunday to catch trains leaving on Sunday. Mails  are delivered on Sunday from trains to thc post'  .ollice, and arc sorted into thc boxes of post ollice  patrons. A letter can bc pojstcd on Sunday to go  in thc made-up Sunday mail. Lcltcrs and papers  can be dropped into a box on Sunday, but letters  and papers cannot be taken from a box on Sunday. And ,w.c are not living in lhc Dark Age of  religious persecution, cither: Wc arc living in an  age of religious indifference and indifference to  freedom's rights. Commenting on the situation,  thc Greenwood Ledge says:  In some parts of B. G. the post offices are bone-  tight on Sunday, and box-holders cannot even get in  to remove the mail from their boxes. In other parts the  box-holders have free access to their boxes on Sundays. ' Two Jaws in lhe same Province. In these  bone-tight Sunday post office .towns, iletters can be  posted on Sundays by dropping them from the outside into slits"in the building. This should be^stoppcd.  If it is wrong or unlawful to take letters out of a box  on Sunday, it is just as great an olfense to put letters  into one. Even in the prosecution of fanatical and  Puritanical laws, consistency should be allowed to  remain a jewel. We do.not believe,,in half-way measures. If-the poscoffices, built by1'the people, and for  tlie people, are to be locked tight for 24,hours, or more  every .week in-order to please the minority, we should  then proceed , further and prohibit the writing and  posting of letters on Sundays. We should also haye  the telegraph and telephone ollices go dark and still  on.1-the same day. Surely the clicking of telegraph  keys, and the ringing of telephone bqlls has a greater  tendency to mar the silent, solemnity of our sacred  day, jjnd offend God, than has the turning of a key in  the well-oiled hole of a postoflice box. People who  have at heart the desire for the greatest good to thc.  greatest number are firmly of thc-ppinion that all  postofficcs should be open to ihe gene rail public every  Sunday, at least for an hour or two, as they are oh  legal holidays. '  ���������������������������  PEACE MOVEMENT IN EUROPE  rrwilFhc notl^VvilliVpleasiire by our readers  thai Lion. Martin Burrell is not slaled as one of  the old* ministers to retire. Rumor said some  weeks ago thai the Minister of Agriculture was  lo step out. It now transpires lhat Mr. Burrell  will retire as minister of agriculture, to take lhc  post of secretary of stale under lhe new regime.  NOT A SQUARE DEAL  Motel* men in the small towns of Brilish  Columbia arc facing the hardest proposition any  class of businessmen were every forced lo assume. They have, in years past, heen compelled  by the people, through their governing body, to  comply with certain slringenl conditions- wilh  regard lo providing hotel accommodation for thc  travelling public. A certain number of rooms  'luul to he provided, and certain regulations had  lo bc complied wilh in thc way of service. In  tnis way much increased expense was added to  hotel men which other business lines did not  have to carry. And lhe people, acting as" silent  partner, bul compelling thc-other Tellow lo pul  up all lhe cosls, graciously demanded a rake-oll",  by way of increased licence. Then of a sudden,  the people concluded they would not lake lhe  rake-oll" any longer, because it was morally bad,  and forlhwilh lhcy jumped upon -their former  'partner and, wilh a strangle hold, robbed him of  two-thirds ol" his business, and made no provision I'or compensating the partner for the excessive cosls he was put to previously.  In our small towns and cities hotclmen have  on their hands expensive bar and ollice fixtures,  which they have no use for but cannot get rid of  under present condilions; lhe communities are  about lo lose their hotels through their having to  close Iheir doors, and the hotclmen themselves,  So far as ,one may-judge from outward appearances* bul little hcadwa'y is being,made in  lhc preliminary peace talks in Europe. All the  belligerent nations arc attempting" lo save their  face, while each is yearning,lor peace. Government leaders continue to talk in public "aI" one  'anolhcr, each holding out for thc maximum yet  intimating the possibility of accepting less. Last  week German moderates declared lhat Belgium  is no longer a serious obstacle to peace, and intimated lhat the real difficulty lies in the Tale of  lhe Grcman provinces. The junker element,  however, boldly declare that lhere can be no  peace based upon the taking ofAlsace-Lorraine-  by France. On the other hand, Hon.Lloyd George  states as emphatically that Britain will not relinquish her demand* for Alsace-Lorraine while  France is prepared to fight with her for it.  Politically the outlook does.not indicate any  probability of peace this winter. Economically,  'however,' there are many signs -which indicate  thejicaiJng^oL-alI_ELiropean^countries^to_ifa m i na  conditions. German statesmen make the boast  that the Central Powers arc able to hold out.indefinitely ih the matter of food supplies, and they  encourage themselves and their people by reports thai Great Britain is rapidly being brought  to the point of exhaustion by the U-boats. At  the same time, London reports conditions ��������������������������� comparatively good in England, with no possibility  of Ihe country.having to sull'er from lack of food.'  Condi tiolvs in "Russia appear  to ""'have "bright-'  ened since last week, politically at least.

There is a world shortage of bacon.  Canada has abundance of other foods-  Britain is seriously menaced by submarines.  Canada must eat less white bread and reduce  wheat consumption at home by 12,000,000  bushels.  Canada must send 25 per cent more beef and  bacon to the Allies. \  A name that stands for the best in hotel service   -  KingEdwardHoteU;op^URPHy Enderby  Choice cuts always at your command,  and prompt delivery..-.,. :x..... ,.���������������������������:.:���������������������������:',".

C. ��������������������������� A  ENDERBY PRESS  AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1917 "  an  Canada's Big Army Overseas  How Canada maintains her army  overseas and how thc multitude of  details incident to the pay, allowances and equipment oi' so large a  force are handled is a story that  cannot fail to be interesting to the  people of this country ul the present time.  A great deal of uninformed criti-"  cism has been directed at the pay  branches of the Militia Department  both in Ottawa and overseas, but  when the facts are examined into  it must be conceded that thc diili-  cullies that the.se/-organizations  have to contend with are enormous, and in dealing with the vast  amouni of business that they handle errors and delays must of necessity creep in occasionally. 13ut  when one is. made familiar with  the, system followed it discloses  ilhc fact lhal every possible effort  is made to reduce these occuranees  to a minimum.  There are over three "hundred  thousand men from Canada overseas and jt cosls aboul a hundred  million dollars a year to pay, feed  and clothe them. Provision must  be made so that men are able to get  money in the field; if a man returns tp England on leave he must  be able to secure cash on arrival;  and when men go to the hospitals  they require a little to spend on  themselves", or make remittances.  To do all this and have a correct  balance at the end of every month  entails a mass of careful, exacting  work, which is all clone through  thc Canadian Pay Ollice, London,  Eng., under the, "Minister of Overseas Military Forces, which organ i-  zalion i.s ihe outgrowth of, and intimately" connected, with, the Paymaster General's' branch of the  Department of Militia in Canada.  The .chain   of   responsibility   is  unbrok*en   throughout.    Thc   Chief  Paymaster makes a requisition  for  money  through the Deputy Minister of Militia  for. an -.amount estimated . sufficient-  to    maintain   thc  Canadian army for one month, and  the Bank of Montreal is instructed  to establish a credit to thai extent.  The   books  are  balanced   monthly  and vouchers and receipts must bc  produced   to   cover  each  expenditure.   The central oflice in London  responsible  to   Ihe  Department  at  Ottawa   is   the   Advances - Branch,  and as money is paid out of 'this  oflice on requisition to the various  branches of the service, the ollicers  at the head of each branch are in  turn responsible.  Payments for material purchased  are of course made by cheque, and  for all amounts of a thousand  pounds and over must bc signed by  the Overseas Deputy Minister, Ac-  ^coTrirtTfht^G'eirera 1 or" ClfitsT^PayjF  master, and the voucher made out  in triplicate, one to bc sent to Canada, one to be bound and filed and  a third for the branch by which  the money is spent. Over 4,000  cheques arc issued for this business a month.  A similar check is kept of all  pay accounts. The man-when paid  signs an Acquittance Roll, which i.s  a receipt, and these rolls are sent  in daily to, the Advance Branch,  the Paymaster retaining a copy to  forward with'his monthjy statement, Which must balance with lhc  amount he received from lhe field  cashier. Over 3,000 acquittance  rolls are received daily, and there  are about (500 advances daily to  Canadians in British hospitals and  a like number to British in Canadian hospitals.  Apart from the regular business  of paying the men and settling ac-'  counts for material purchased the  Canadian Pay Ollice in London has  a branch known to the service as  "Pay IV but actually a small trust  company which takes care of 300,-  000 accounts for the Canadian soldiers overseas, and so complete i.s  the system, that reference can bc  had to any account on three minutes' notices. It is estimated that  there are four million entries a  month in this branch which refer  to cash payments, assigned pay,  separation allowance, promotions  and reversions, clothing issued,  adjustments or any other financial  transactions which may affect the  soldier's  account.  2-  JU  [L.S.]  CANADA  GEORGE the FIFTH, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom  of Great Britain and Ireland and of the British Dominions beyond the Seas, King, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India.

S   .;   .  V    ADVERTISING.  Canada's food controller's office .is authority  for thc statement that enough good food is  wasted in Canada every day to feed every, Canadian soldier, who-.has.'gone overseas tp fight for  us. Through carelessness-and inefficiency there  is wasted in garbage evory year throughout Canada, food kTthe value of $56,000,000, or about $7  per capita of the home population. To this huge  sum must be added a large,,though indeterminate, number of millions lost through poor storage, delay hi transportation, and unhygienic surroundings. What;thc grand total would be there  are no present means pf .discovering. The important points are thaUthis'waste is needless and  preventable. Wasting $7 worth of food per year  means a daily waste of only 1.92 cents per head.  Without doubt, larger crops, better distribution,  closer buying on the part of the housekeeper,  more careful preparation 'and more thorough  utilization of our food-stuffs, would not only correct this waste, but would appreciably reduce thc  actual cost of living very considerably.-  It is estimated that the yearly loss in Canada  due to unsuitable storage of fruits and vegetables  Is no less than $1,000,000.  A merchant was felling an experienced-sales?  man.about his .business being: bad. j"There?s one  of my competitors down the Street in the same  line of business," said he," "whose store is not7 as  modern as mine, bill hc docs more.business lhan  I do. I cannot understand why people don't  select jny store in preference to his when I have  better v store service and merchandise to offer.  Before I remodeled my store, people said to mc,  'Why. don't you put modern fixtures in your  store���������������������������you'll do mom business:' I7 did. 1 put  attractive fixtures, throughout my store, employed. experienced salesmen to give-ellicient  service arid Lam free to say thai my business is  incomparable in this city. Now will you tell me  whatfs the matter wilh the people in this city?  My location is good; I am careful in buying; I  guarantee everything I .sell, and -my- prices arc  right for the good quality of merchandise I sell,  and still my business doesn't increase."

You've got the kind of  store in which people want to trade, but yoiCvc  neglected to let - them know how well you're  equipped lo handle their trade. Your competitor  down the street advertises to let the people know  what hc has to sell and how- he sells it. Thc people read it in the newspapers andlhcy go there to  buy. The-best thing you can do now is to advertise. Start an advertising campaign telling the  people in a scries of advertisements thc same  story you've just told mc. Another .thing lo remember���������������������������don'l think thai by placing a few three  or four inch advertisements in the paper for a  month that you've done any advertising tliat will  result in profit. Be conservative in your expenditure, hut nt Ihe same time allow your advertising to represent thc part of a good salesman..

And  not a few arc going to pit their  crop and take a chance. .  It might be well for these growers to read the last crop reports issued hy the Dominion Department  of Agriculture and also the words  of MivW.'E. Scolt, deputy minister  of agriculture at Victoria. The  estimates just issued by the Dominion department of Agriculture, indicate that, wilh possibly one exception, all provinces in Canada  this year wi,ll have a considerable  surplus over and above the average  consumption. ". The estimated acreage is 50,085 morc than last year,  and 20,400 acres morc than the  average for five years (1910-14.)  It is too early to estimate the yield,  but the present indications are  that the yield per acre will be  above the five year average, notwithstanding the fact lhat blight  and recent frosts have caused some  injury in a few sections.  Speaking of the outlook in British Columbia for higher prices,  Mr. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, says: "The surplus in this  Province will be considerable under the best possible conditions.  There is apparently very ' little  chance of any market in the United States. To meet the provincial  conditions I would strongly impress upon all potato growers the  wisdom of adopting the following  policy: That no potatoes be sold  to the consumer through the ordinary channels of trade, of less lhan  three ounces in weight,, good,  sound stock, free from rot and  scab ;that a careful selection of potatoes be. made, suitable for next  year's seed; that all small potatoes  unsuitcd for table���������������������������use be fed to  slock at, or close to, the place of  production; lhat only graded," well-  es  on the Be^t Merchandise  THESE GOODS ADVERTISED BELOW AND WHICH WERE PURCAHSED.

GHACE  WORTH,  3t Trinity Valley  fair, all things considered. In my  opinion a fair price to thc consumer for good No. 1 Lower Mainland potatoes would be $1.50 per  sack of 100 pounds. Allowing tho  retailer 25c per sack; the wholesaler from 7%c to 15c per sack  (according to quantity and terms  of sale) freight and buying charges  say 10c per sack, would give the  producer about 90c to $1 per sack  net, till December 31st."  The price suggested as a fair  one by Mr. Scott is about the same  as that named by the Fruit and  Vegetable Committee of the Food  ���������������������������Gont rollers���������������������������Office���������������������������whichjH'orMhc-  castern provinces, has been set at  not to exceed $1.25 per bag of 90  pounds. "A price of less than 1 %  cents per pound lo the consumer,"  concludes the com;mitcc, "should  insure to the, grower a reasonable  return for his potatoes, and give  to thc wholesale and retail dealers  a fair: margin   for_ handling Thc  Food Controller i.s of the opinion  that potatoes should be sold by  weight only and has under consideration thc passing of an order  to have this made compulsory; also  ��������������������������� hat no nol a Iocs should bc graded  No. 1 which weigh less than three  ounces and arc free from scab and  rot. . . .

Military Life Health-Giving  Ottawa,���������������������������That the average  healthy man grows quickly to~ enjoy military camp life has been  proved up to the hilt since Canada  entered the war. The outdoor exercises afford scope for much athletic enjoyment, so that many men  become and remain more healthy  after entering the army than' they  have ever been before. Soldiers  must be healthy, and one of the  aims of military training pending  service at the front is to bring the  men, up to the highcst.stage of. phy  sical- efficiency. All their accommodations are designed to be most  sanitary and healthful and they are  constantly encouraged to take part  in physical exercise.  &.
