A  full attendance is requested.  The first; installment of parcels  from the Woman'*? Patriotic society  of 'PjiMiiix for the boys of that town  iu thf trenches were started on their  long journey to France la������t week.  Jesse, the 2^-years old son of   Mr.  and Mrs. J. F. Kraus, who has been  dangerously   ill   for   the past, two  weeks, is reported to be slightly im  proved.  R G. ���������Ritchie, the Cascade merchant, was a visitor in the city yesterday.  .'Thomas   Parker,   of   Nelson,   in  spector of weights and measures, was  in the city yes-terday.  W. O. Miller, divisional superintendent of the C.P.R , visited the  city on Wednesday.  It is rumored in Greenwood that  the Granby company will operate  the Mother Lode smelter.  Smash the Machine Willi  Be Battle-Cry of the Electors  H. C. Brewster, leader of the Lib-1  eril party ;bf British Colu'mhia.iesues  theifollowing manifesto to the electors of the province, irrespective of  political creed, in view of the forthcoming election:' t*  To the Electors:  The legislatuae has been dissolved  and on April 10, only thirty days  hence, a-vain~effort will be made by  the McBride administration to steal  a new leaBe of power. This election,  called in panic, is being brougnt-on  regardless of the fact that the government had still a year before its  allotted time expired. It is for the  electors of the province to consider  the motives and. justification for  such action on the part of the government.  The premier states that dissolution is caused by his desire -to consult the electorate on account of  "considerations mainly arising from  the crisis "of the war." Just what  these considerations are have not yet  been made public. The great strug"-'  gle for the maintenance oi British  institutions has called forth the united patriotic and whole-hearted support of the people of this province,  and,it is.lamentable ,that_a political  leader should seekHo exploit it for  partisan purposes. This attempt  will deceive no one. The public in  British Celumbia remembtr well the  conditions that existed long before  the declaration of war, and will  recognize that the influences leading  to serious financial conditions and  depressions existed then. This is an  excuse only, and ought to* be regarded a6 too serious   for  reference.  Redistribution Measure  The redistribution bill passed by  the legislature has not been a subject of serious controversy,, but it so  changes the boundaries of the constituencies as to make re registration  most desirable, instead of having on  the voters' litts hand-picked by government appointees, as must be the  case w:lh tbe election rushed upen  us in thif manner. We are i-atisfied  that in the present ^mp-r of the  public, however, no manipulation  of the voters' lists will save the government from well merited defeat.  We feel it a duty to call public at-  tion'lo these injustices.  Tne premier declared it to be  the  intention   of   the government to at  tack "courageously and  vigorously  those features of provincial development already initiated and   still   incomplete, referring to  railway  con  structioti both on the mainland and  island."    In our opinion this is his  method of   serving  notice upon the  public that should he again   be   re-  J turned to power he will consider his  [electioh as a mandate from the peo-  ' yle to further pledge   the  credit   of  , the province to railways which have  already been given  assistance far in  excess of their actual cost.  j Tbe aiding of transcontinental  lines of railways should properly be  left to the Dominion government,  and tbe relief of British Columbia  from her present obligations, especially in respect to the Canadian  Northern Pacific railway main line,  might well be a subject for the consideration for the better term.-' com  mission.  Agricultural Act  The new agricultural act, to which  the premier refers as 4,an ernest" of  the policy to be pursued by the government in the future, contains a  principle to which he was pledged  when elected in 1900, and on which  he renewed his pledge in 1903, and  it has"taken fifteen years to, in any  measure, implement his promises  by legislation. And, even at this  late date, it would not have been  dealt'with were it not for the,, agitation on this subject by theLiberals,  whieh-'backed up by the strong pressure of public opinion, makes him  afraid to again meet the electorate  without takiug some steps to claim  progress in this direction.  While the principles of the act,  so far as it provides aid for agricultural development, ts economically  sound, the machinery to be used in,  and tbe methods of, its enforcement  are decidedly objectionable.^ Though  it may be necessary to appoint the  members of the commission by order  in council, theirappointment should  be subject to ratification by the  legislature. ' The deputy minister of  finance and agriculture becoming  ex-officio-members of the**-'commission, tbe appointment of a superintendent and- deputy-superintendent  by tha lieutenant governor, and the  fact that the personnel of the official  staff of the commission has to be  approved by the lieutenant-governor  in council, together with the further  fact that the superintendent is the  active member of tbe commission,  aud the only one required to give  hi3 whole time to the work, shows  conclusively that the actual working  of the act will be controlled by the  government of the day, and if the  goveenment of Sir Richard is re-  tuaned to power, this act will be  'used for party purposes, and its failure . to bring about the desired reform in our agricultural conditions  will be thus assured  There are many other objectional  features in the act. The salaries of  the commissioners should be fixed  by statute, and not be left to the  cprice of the lieutenant governor-in-  council, who may fix the salaries at  an exhoritant figure, and given . the  positions, as rewards for political  services, rather than because of fitness for tbe positions.  Another objectionable feature ia  that it authorizes the loan of money  to those who intend to acquire land  simply for speculative purposes.  This element has already been too  well protected by the government,  which has made it possible for them  to escape payment of either interest  or taxes, or indeed payment, foa the  land so acquired.  Duty of Government  We maintain that no policy of  state aided agricultural production  can be successfully carried out so  long as the choice of agricultural  lands, accessible for transportation  facilities, are in the hands of the  speculative holders, and that it is  tbe first duty of the government t-  resume, upon just and equitable  conditions, possession of these agricultural lands, to the end that the  benefits to be derived from state aid  may go to the people themselves and  not to.speculative holders.  A comparison of the agrisultural  act with the recommendations of the  royal commission on agricuhure  shows that very many of their recommendations have been entirely  overlooked or rejected. (  The fact that it was publicly announced but a short time ago that  it was not the government's intention to pass this legislation this ses  sion, coupled with the further fact  that it is now provided that it shall  only be brought into force by proclamation of governor in council and  may, themfore, be deferred indefinitely, must cast grave doubts upon  tbe sincerity of the government in  this matter.  .We insist that any commission  charged with the operation of an  act of this character should be removed entirely from the sphere of  partisan control. Otherwise it is  foredoomed to failure.  - Government's Record  The government appeals to you  upon its record, and you should  make a thorough examination into  that record.  --It-has-assisted- the speculator to  acquire millions of acres of the best  agricultural lands in the province,  by means of powers of attorney in  defiance of the laws of the country  and in a manner proclaimed fraudulent by tbe courts of the land. It  has assisted and relieved these speculators from tbe necessity of payment of either principal, interest or  taxes on these lands.  It has purchased worthless lands,  including mountain tops, from railway corporations, after all the sections of value had been sold or reserved by them, and thus placed a  heavy burden on the provincial treasury.  It has alienated by license, which  earries with it tba right to purchase,  practically every acre of known coal  lands in the province, and has ignored entirely its pledge to reserve a  portion. of every coal area to the  people.  L has made no reasonable effort  to establish indusl-iial production in  the province.  It has failed in its  enforcement of  the criminal laws of   the   province,  permitting tbe escape of raurderer*v  bank   robbers,   hold-up   men   and  others of like class.  . Its failure to enforce the regulations of the coal mines regulation  act in the mines owned by the Can  adian Collieries, and controlled by  Messrs. Mackenzie and Maun,  brought about the most serious industrial trouble occurring in the  province for many years.  It has been a fixed principle of  the government for years past to  concentrate power in its own bands  to strengthen its political influence.  Every session a familiar clause  placing the control of legislation in  the hands of the lieutenant govemor-  m-council becomes more noticeable.  It has succeeded in converting a  surplus of some nine millions of  dollars into a deficit of many millions and increased tbe bonded indebtedness of the province from nine  (Continued on Page Jf.) fc-..

Canada is in  Grain Production of the Western Provinces Worth More Than Previous  Year  The aggregate of Canadian, borrowings abroad last year was less by aL-  most ,?100,000,000 than in 1913. The  total government, railway, public util'  Ity and municipal issues were $252,-  260,000 as against 5351,408,629 in 1913.  .This is the estimate made in the '*n-  mial financial survey of the Globe,  .-which indicates that a strained position is being relieved by the ease with  which Canadian borrowers of quality  are financing- their requirements in  the United States. Loans by Canadian  corporations would have fallen much  further below last year but for the  Interest in Canadian securities manifested by financial centres in the  .United States in tl.e' final months of  tho year. Canadian railways in the  year borrowed $54,000,000 in London,  and $12,690,000 in tho United States.  That the country has come through  the war period with so few 'important  business aasualties and with the  national credit actually ..improved, is  said lo be due to the. long process of  .liquidation which begun in July of 1913  and proceeded without interruption  until the war broke out. The greatest  achievement of the year is regarded  as. the increase in the productive  capacity of the country, and the most  immediate problem, the bringing into  profitable operation the new railroad  .mileage. It is recognized that there  can be no great revival in construction  !for a considerable period, but the  transportation industry is-expected to  receive some impetus for the movement of the crops next year if the  present inuicatiens of a greatly increased output are- confirmed!  The grain production of the western  provinces, though estimated at 347,-  274,401 bushels as compared with  497,129,007 bushels in 1913, was worth  $254,945,215 as against $240,922,020 in  tlie previous year. The value of Ontario field crops for 1914 amounts to  the vast sum of ?335,000,000. ��������� The  striking development of mixed farming  in Western Canada which enabled that  part of tho Dominion to feed itself  completely in 1914, is emphasized as  one of the outstanding features of the.  year.  Tho production of minerals, both in  Ontario and British Columbia, has  fallen off during the "past year-with  the exception of the gold. The British  Columbia gold output is valued at  $6,162,910. as compared with $6,137,490  in 1914, \yhile the Porcupine camp in  Northern Ontario mined gold worth  $5,750,000 as against $-1,294,113 in the  previous  year.  ���������The building activities throughout  Canada are shown in a record of  building permits to have been -materially affected in the past year. In 191-1  the total amount of permits is given  as $86,158,581, as compared with $161,-  927.710 iu 1913.  ��������� The number of commercial J'ailurc-s  in Canada was 3,062, compared with  1,71[Kin tlie previous year.  Value of Tunnel  Undersea    Connection   Between   England  and   France  Would  be  of  Vast Aid to Allies  Often since the European war began  there must have flashed across the  minds of both statesmen and strategists the 'thought of how foolish the  British government was to forbid the  construction of a railroad tunnel between England and France. Had the  two empires been .connected by the  proposed double tube road beneath the  English channel there would have  been a vast saving of time, trouble  and expense in the conveyance of  British troops to the lieids of war in  Northern France and Belgium.  Dover being sixty-six miles from  London and only twenty-six from  Calais, a troop train coul 1 have run  from England to France in considerably less than half the tims of a run  from London to Dover. The choppy  sea passage and the tedious tasks of  embarkation and debarkation would  have been avoided. Neither from below nor from above could any attack  have been made, submarines and aeroplanes being alike powerless to pierce  300 feet under the bed of the sea. Men,  horses, guns and supplies of all kinds  would have arrived in better condition  than was possible by the old sea route.  - It may be observed that not one  word of all this is uttered by any of  the British military experts.' They  preserve a discreet silence. It was  they, or their predecessors, tho official advisers of the government, who  blocked the way of the channel tunnel  project. They shrank from the shadow of the Napoleonic bogy of invasion.  Just forty years ago, when the railway  tunnel was first suggested, the British  foreign office expressed its approval,  and yet there is no tunnel, because  every time the matter was referred to  the milita'ry experts they reported  against it as a danger. There is reason to believe that those who survive  have changed their mind, and that the  newer men who direct British military  affairs regard the under sea road not  as a" peril, but as a convenience. This  it certainly would be, and even more  so in peace than in war, if the bond  of Anglo-French friendship remained  unbroken.  ��������� As jMi\ Asquith promised in the autumn of last year, the scheme has been  reconsidered by the war office, the  admiralty and the board of trade, and  it isunderstood that their reports aro  in tlie hands of the committee of imperial defence. The decision* of this  body is likely to ,be favorable. If it is,  the tunnel will probably be made by  the Southeastern Railway Company of  England, and the Northern Railway  Company of France, each of which is  j.repared to expend $40,000,000, onc-  iialf of; the estimated total cost. But  the work may be deferred until after  the war���������which, while it severely  taxes the energies and resources of  both nations, is steadily drawing them  closer in the ties of affectionate comradeship. Tlie tunnel would be in itself the addition of a highly, desirable  and substantial tie.���������Boston Herald.  Canadian Building- Exhibit  Government Structure is the Largest  Foreign Building on the Grounds  The Canadian government building  a* the Panama Pacific Exposition in  largest foreign building on the ground.  San Francisco is complete and is the  Its contents are of government origin  and maintenance, and are designed  chiefly to promote immigration and  commerce.   ������������������������������������-.���������������������������  It covers an area of 450 by 225 feet,  the ground floor being divided into a  loggia 60 by 40 feet, three exhibit  courts, each '230 feet long, two exhibit rooms 40 feet square, and three  courts which communicate through  numerous arches, and the whole effect of the interior is that of a vast  arcade with cardinal and gold prominent iu the upper decorations/and rustic grills through which transparent  panels are seen depicting Canadian  rural scenes. Models and panoramas  also comprise with products the exhibits.  An Awful  Possibility  Breathlessly he rushed into the barber shop. His hat, collar and necktie  were off in a trice, and he sprang into  the chair over which old Fritz presided.  "I want a shave and a haircut, and  I have only fifteen minutes," he said.  Old Fritz stopped to consider. After  a few seconds he asked:  "Vitch do you want the most?"  "A shave."  The shave took about eleven minutes.  As Fritz . removed the towel from  his customer's neck he said:  "Mine friend, don't nefer again ask  a barber, to cut your hair and -shafe  you in fifte'er. minutes pecause some  time you might find a barber vat  would do it."  Kaiser and the British  The Daily Mail says that according  to a Silesian provincial newspaper,  the Kaiser has been pouring out his  Jieart to wounded German soldiers  about "the many Brtish calumnies of  which the war has been so prolific."  After asking the convalescents ai  base hospitals in the eastern arena  as to the nature of their wounds, and  congratulating them on the latest  success of their regiment, the war  lord turns the conversation to the all->  pervading theme���������Britain. Suddenly  a stalwart Bavarian, who listened to  the Kaiser's remarks, sat up in bed  ana shouted in a :*ich Tyrolean accent: "Your majesty lias a fine lot of  relations."  Everyone present,' the narrative  says, was speechless with indignation  over the Bavarian's strong language,  but the Kaiser laughed heartily, jumped over to the soldier's bed, slapped  Jiini jovially on the shoulder, and  gave him a hearty handshake of goodbye.  How He Knew  A travelling sales agent visiting a  large factory made a bet witn the manager that he. Avould pick out all the  married-men among the employees.  Accordingly he stationed himsslf at  The door as they came' back from dinner and mentioned all those whom ..e  believed to-be married, and in almost  every case he was right.  "How did you do it?" asked the  manager.  "Oh, it's quite simple," said the traveller, "quite simple. The married  men all wipe their feet ou the mat.  The single men don't."  During the (rial of some infamous  persons Charles Lamb remarked  gravely that he "should lik: to know  them���������to ask the*,    to dinner."  "You would not sit with them?"  asked  Talfourd,  solemnly,  "Yes, I 'would sit with anything but  a hen or a tailor."  "I'm in favor of the automobile  tax!" cried  the  socialist.  "You horrid man!" cried the sweet  voung thing. "Did you put any in our  tires?"  W. N. U. 1037  Going Out With Honor  Capt. Norman Leslie, of the Rifle  Brigade, in a letter t*> a friend, written a few days before his death in action, had this to say about the  chances of the battlefield .-���������  "Try and not worry'too much about  the war. Remember we are writing  a new page in history. Future generations cannot he allowed to read the decline of the British and attribute it to  us. We live our little lives and die.  To some are given chances of proving  themselves men and to others no  cL.uice comes. Whatever our individual faults, virtues, or qualities may be  it matters not; but when we are up  against big things, let us forget individuals and let us act as one great  British1 unit,." united and fearless.  Some will liJ'Q and many will die, but  count the K : . naught. It is better far  to go out with honor than survive  -vith shame."  Father Cummings, once superintendent of the Little Wanderers'  Home, attended a watchnight service,  and closed his testimony by saying:  "It may be but a month longer that  I shall be here, perhaps a week, or  even before the close of another day  I shall be gone." Ho had hardly seated  himself when a young man in the  baclc of the vestry started the old  song, "Oh, why do you wait, dear  brother; oh, why do you tarry so  long?"  Battle, Cry  German     Says    it    Makes    His   Men  Shudder  "They go to a battle as to a feast."  That is what.a proud Russian officer, wb'o'lias been engaged i.r the Vistula battles, says'of his men. He has  been deputed to keep his regiment's  battle diary, and one of tho stirring  pages gives an account of the capture  of a battery.  "We were waiting for the outflanking force to reach the Germans in the  rear, it was damp and cold; we had  had no, food since the morinng. But  no one thought of that; we were., impatiently waiting for the signal. At 11  o'clock came the cry of 'Hurrah!' in  a splendid roar. We sprang out like  one man and dashed at the.Germans.  They fired for all they were worth,  and , their bullets pelted around us.  But 'our soldiers and officers ran on-  shouting joyfully, 'Hurrah,' leaping  over each other to be the first, and  springing across the trenches and  wolf's holes.' We reached the village  and found the Germans fleeing from  both sides. We worked with bayonets  and the butt ends of our rifles right  and, left, when suddenly one of our officers cried, 'Brothers, follow me!  There's tho German .battery,' and he  p6inted to the right end of the village,  300 yards away.  "With one bound we were on ihat  battery. Only one German remained  ���������a young lieutenant; he r.tood Avith  his arms folded across his chest in a  Napoleon attitude,-with his sword and  revolver lying at his feet.' Our men  never thought of touching him; what  they wanted were the guns. They  seized them, each shooting, 'It's mine!  I shan't give it up to,anyone! It's  mine!' like madmen.  " 'Your cry of hurrah,' said tl.e German lieutenant afterwards,- 'sounded  terrible. It was horrible. We shuddered at the roar, and our gunners' hands  trembled as they drove the shells into  the guns. And when tho next roar  came they could not be held there.  So I remained alone, deciding to die-  near the guns.' "   \  Battleships for  British--Navy  Tricks of German Spies  How  Information  is  Conveyed to the  Enemy   in   Devious   Ways  An officer in command oE a flying  hospital column with the Russian  troops gives the following account of  troubles with spies and other features  of the fighting in Poland:  "About spies, 1 could tell>��������� you vol-  .umes after a month in 'Poland. It is  not only Jews, but swarms also of  genuine Germans whose duty it seems  to have been to live in Pojand for  years and make themselves absolutely at homo. Their signalling tricks  began all imagination. "When we  discovered their colored smoke signals, they took to arranging cedes  with chimney pots. Normal meant all  right. Gone" altogether means guns.  Lying on the side meant cavalry.  "One day during a change of positions our troops in hundreds passed  by a man in a soldier's uniform lying-  in a ditch, wheie he complained of  rheumatism, but refused aid, saying-  he wanted a little rest, and would  then manage to get along. She fellow steadily declined help from the  passing troops or would not go on with  the field hospital'1 when asked to"  "Finally along came a Cossack  patrol. There are no cuter fellows  than the Cossacks. When told the  man refused to move along and appeared not to be wounded but seemed  unable to walk, a Cossack said: "A  wounded soldier or tired man crawls  aloug a bit and rests, crawls and  rests." This chap has been here for  hours, for "we passed this way before.;'  'Down came the Cossack's whip and  up. started the rheumatic incapable.  Under him'������������������was a' telephone over  which he had been telephoning news  cf everything that passed along, the  road for goodness knows how long.  , "What happened? Well the Germans got no more phone messages  from that scoundrel.  "A sut-picious appearing Pole was  brought in one day who understood  no German and no Russian. He was a  Pole at all points, but still there was  something.which the examining officers could not be quite satisfied abemt.  His' superior, turning round from his  work, suddenly said to the officer in  German: 'Of course, the fellow is a  German spy:  hang him up.'  "The supposed Polo who knew no  German fell into tho trap and a full  confession followed, with the usual  result.  "Our regular ambulance work is  very difficult. We only go by night  and dare not show lights, as the German artillery fires at everything they  see moving. We lake advantage of  this. When we can we start a big  fire a few yards aAvay and carry it on  our way. All day during the fighting  we lie somewhere in the trendies  wherever we conveniently can."  On a crowded San Francisco street  car one wet, miserable nighi not long  ago, a coin was heard to drop. As nearby passengers craned their necks an  old man stooped ar.d picked it up.  "Anybody lost a five dollar piece?" he  asked, anxiously.  Nine passengers hurriedly searched  their pockets and shouted:  "I have."  "Well, I've found a penny towards  it," said the old man.

(Curtain)  Acts  First Lord of Admiralty Predicts Fifteen  Will  be  Ready This' Year*"  The claims of the First Lord of the  Admiralty,   the   Rt.     Hon..   Winston  Churchill,  that Britain will have fifteen more Dreadnoughts ready for action before the end of this year, is no  ! idle,   boast.     In   fact,    according   to  naval experts,.it&is an understatement  by at least two ships.  Since the outbreak of -the war ihe  British censor has rigidly suppressed the publication of anything concerning the building, launching or  commissioning of warships, but without breach of confidence, it is possible to compile a fairly accurate list  of England's reinforcements from  Admiralty data already made public.  When war was declared England  had in commission twenty-eight  dreadnought battleships .and battle:  cruisers not counting the Lord Nelson  and Agamemnon which, although  nearly as powerful���������tlioy mount four  12 inch and ten 9 inch and two- 10  .inch guns apiece���������are rccko' ed as  prer_dj*eadnoughts.  Building or refitting .Britain had  thirteen ironclad monsters on "August  4, and another four, just .laid ' clown.  These vessels were reinforced by.tho  purchase of two battleships building  in" England for Chile and the forcible  acquisition of two building for Turkey.  Work at the -shipyards is proceeding so feverishly that the four battleships of the 1914 programme may be  completed before ".the end of the-war,'  but Mr. Churchill does not reckon  them in his estimate of ships' ready'  this year. It will be seen, then, that  he has seventeen vessels, ii.eluding  the Turkish and Chilean acquisitions.  Of these ships five, the'emperor of  India, the Bcnbow, Queen Elizabeth  and Warspitc and' the 30.000-ton 30-  knot battle cruiser Tiger, were  launched over a year, ago and have  almost certainly been ^commissioned  since the outbreak of hostilities. Two  are known to have put to sea.  Of the others, the Valiant, Bar-  ham, Malaya,' Royal Sovereign, Royal  Oak, Resolution, Ramillies i.nd Revenge were laid down just over a  year ago and some if not all, must  iiave been launched by now. Tne  same appiies to the Turkish dreadnoughts Birije, Osman and Resha-  dieh, and to the Cliilean Almirante  Latorre (now named,Canada). Considerable progress had been made on  the Turkish vessels, and it was only  Turkey's lack of money that hiii-  dered their completion. Once Britain  tool?*them over this drawback disappeared, and during tho four months  of the war the work of completion  has beeii  pushed  forward.  The five Queen Elizabeths and five  Royal Sovereigns are .armed with  eight of the new 15 inch guns, and  will be able fo ��������� fire the most tremendous broadside of any vessels  affoat. The Germans have a 15 inch  gun, but according to the Admiralty's  latest information they will be unable to mount any ships completing  next year.  Of Germany's eleven dreadnoughts  and battle cruisers in process of completion, at the outbreak of hostilities,  five the Koenig, Narkgrad, Grosser  ���������Kurfurst, Deri*flinger" and Lutzow,  were launched in 1913, and the first  four are 'almost certainly in commission or nearing completion now. Of  the others, only the Kron Prinz  (launched in February, 1914), can be  ready within, a reasonable time. Moreover all those mentioned are. . only  armed with 12 inch guns, unless a  last moment change in their construction has been made.  His Last Two Rounds  >'  Coldstream Guardsman's Dying Re-  - quest to His Friends  "There was', a-man in the'.trenches,/'  writes Private R. G/ Tipper, of the  3rd Battalion.;',.Coldstream GuarJs,  "who had not got a clean sheet; he  was always getting- into' trouble for  one thing or another. He got hit in  the arm.' He crawled back out of the  trenches to the nearest field ambulance  and had his wound dresssd. We advised him to go to the rear, but uc  refused, and with difficulty made his  way back to the firing line. There,  despite his wounded arm, he steadily  went on firing at the enemy. Some  time passed, and he was shot iu the  right,arm. Again he made tho difficult  and painful journey to the field hospital and again, with both his arms injured, he stubbornly insisted on crawling back to tho trench.  By-anci-by he collapsed, shot clean  through the body,. Several comrades  ran to Him and raised him. 'You must  get back now,' they told him. 'No,' he  said with a white face, 'let m<j be.  The blighters have done me in this  time.' His rille still rested where he  had been firing, supported in its loopholes. 'Hoist me up before you go,'  he muttered. 'I'll give them another  round, so help me! Prop me up  quick..' They knew they could do nothing. They propped him up beside  his rifle and Ayent to the other wounded men. With fumbling hands the dying man pointed his rifle, and let  drive two more rounds at the enemy.  Then he slipped doAvn dead."  "I trust, Miss Simpkins, that you  have something in reserve for a  rainy day," said the benevolent old  gentleman.  "Yes, sir," said the earnest young  Avoman. "I am going to marry a man  named Mackintosh."  "Were you ringing the bell, sir?"  asked the wait-;r of the customer avIio  had been busy with the bell for fifteen  minutes.  "Ringing it, mr.ii?" echoed the customer. "I have been tolling it. I  thought you were dead,"  Anti-Typhoid Vaccination  One'of'the more recent- discoveries  of modern medicine is the control- j������  the spread pf typhoid or enteric fever  by means of a.vaccine. ,'  How important this preventive measure is may be judged by the fact .in.  the .-Boer Avar, before ..anti-typhoid  vaccination Avas placed on a satisfactory basis, more men were incapacitated by "fever" than by wounds; .and.  by the fact that a few years ago 15,-  000 vaccinated troops were mobilized  by the United States government on.  the Mexican border near a city where  typhoid *-\vas prevalent and one- only  of this army was infected.  Enteric fever iu caused by the typhoid "bacillus, a small rod-shaped  vegetable organism which gains entrance to the body by the mouth, generally in infected milk or .water. This  germ multiplies in the blood very  rapidly,"-so rapidly in fact- that the  numbers-can double every half lioui\  and they are ppisonous to. the human  system. The poison or toxin which  they contain gives-rise-to all the symptoms which enable physicians to diagnose the condition as o'ne-due t������,-this  special microbe.  The cells of the body so attacked  manufacture a substance to offset the  toxin formed, by the miscroscopic invaders and if'conditions "are-favorable  in a few weeks have produced' a sufficient quantity to destroy the.offending  bacteria and thus alloAv the natural  functions of the body to become normal aga.in. If on the other hand the  poison holds the upper hand long  enough the patient-is overwhelmed by  the onslaught, the vitalorgans are impaired beyond any chance of recovery,  and another preventable death is registered.  ..With anti-typhoid vaccination"  science has been able to greatly minimize -the chances of infection. This is  how the -miracle is brought about. A  ,virulent or deadly strain of typhoid  germs are grown in the laboratory  from the blood of a patient. The microbes are killed by heat,and are then  shaken up in a Aveak solution ,of ordinary salt and distilled  Avater.  By means of special, complicated-  methods trained laboratory Avorkers  are able to estimate the number of  bacteria in the mixture. One thousand  million microbes in" fifteen drops of  the preparation is the standard usually  adopted and here one has a vaccine  which when injected under the'.skin  stimulates the tissues of the body to  form the same substance that was produced to combat the attack of the  living, germs. Three such injections  or inoculations at intervals, giving  little and sometimes no discomfort,  protect .the individual for ���������several -  years. Typhoid fever is then no longer a menace.

For  instance,  one; gentleman .writes  dliat he-and throe or four other's were  thinking "of   coming'  to -Alberta   but  that  ho  understands  men  are   being  drafted  but of Canada to go "to  the  war/ and as he and his friends don't  want to go to war, they aro undecided  what to do.   Another man writes that  he   was   told   that* a  law  had J- been  passed ��������� in- Canada,  exempting  people  from   the   United   Stales     from   the  right to immigrate into Canada.-There  are  six  men  in  his  party  and   they  are at a loss' to know what to do under the circumstances.    It should be  noted by all concerned in the settlement of Western Canada, and the fact  should- be  given   the fullest possible  publicity that there is absolutely no  truth1 in either of these reports or any  other  similar reports, which  are obviously circulated for the purpose of  discouraging immigration  to  Canada.  There  has  not  been  a  man  drafted  from Canada or from any other part  of the empire for service in the European war, and there is no prospect of  any such action.   A call was made fo.r  Canadian  volunteers  and  more  than  three-times  as  many    men.   offered  themselves as could be accepted. The  government's    problem has not been  the getting of men, but the accepting  of the great numbers offering themselves.   It- is evident that with conditions  such as "these,  the .(.'rafting ot  men for war service is not dreamed  of, but for' the sake of argument, even,  if. it. were,-American citizens coming  to ' Canada   could   of course    not.be  drafted until they became British'subjects ,ancl they are under no obligation   to   become   British   subjects   at  any time unless they so .desire.   The  statement that laws have been passed  in Canada to prevent Americans immigrating to this country is even more  absurd, as must be appreciated by all  "who are familiar with conditions and  know how greatly the practical farmer of the United States is wanted in  Western Canada, where .great fertile  areas  are awaiting  farmers  to  cultivate them.    It may be set down with  the fullest assurauce that Canada is  more anxious to assist them than prevent the immigration'of desirable settlers from the United States. The instances  quoted  above  indicate    that  there is no assertion too unreasonable  or absurd  to find circulation- in certain quarters if its effect will only be  to discourage' American farmers from  coming to Canada.

The whole world knows, it states, tlfat  AVhitby has a'"coastguarcl station aud  a signal station, and that Scarborough  has a coastguard station. According  to German belief, all coastguardsmen  are-'liable to be called upon to serve  in the navy, and the German journal  adds that an enemy has consequently  an indisputable right to bombard such  "military stations."  "That women and children should  lose their lives in" consequence of such  bombardment is," it says, "regrettable, but unavoidable, if they remain  in such coast towns anl are not  placed in security by responsible officials." -  Mdmiral Schlieper, writing in the  Lokal Anzeiger, 'complains bitterly  that the Germans in their conduct of  war, ami especially of this \vai*, have  been far too considerate. The purely  humane side of war receives far too  much attention, and they worry themselves about humanitarian matters  when they ought to be conducting  their campaigns with all possible  rigor. Me agrees with Admiral Von  Tirpjtz that German submarines must  develop still further their activity, and  torpedo everything British that comes  in their way.  "England is choking Germany," he  writes, "and under tlie circumstances  everything is permissible."  birth the song aided the French  against the ancestors of their present  foes. '  In 1792 the French army, of the  .Rhine was defcndin-j the border^  against the Prussians. In tho.house'  of the mayor of Strassburg a friendly  dinner was going on, when some one  expressed a regret that Franco had  no heroic song to stimulate the ardor  of the soldiers. Rouget de Lisle, an  officer of engineers, was at tho table,'  and being'a dabbler at poetry, he set  to work immediately. Ho took down  his violin and played. Air and words  came to him at the same time. The .  next-morning he read the "War Song  of the Army of the Rhine*' to hia  friends. Tlie army took it up and it  soon had gone all over France. ,It acquired its present title from the fact  that a regiment of volunteers from  Marseilles soon after marched into  Paris singing the song.  The revolutionists adopted the song  for their own, though the author was  an aristocrat. Later on, when he was  forced to flee as a royalist, he heard  the strains of his song.  "What is' that hymn called?" ho  asked, and was told "The Marseillaise."  Thus he learned the name of his  own composition, be Lisle w,as never  treated with honor by the French until just before his death, when h& received the ,ribbon of tne Legion of  Honor.  His song has been sung in other  countries besides Franco. It is heard  wherever there has been a war of liberty, in Italy, Germany, Russia and  the Balkansv It has no rivals as a national hymn.   Carlyle said of it:  "The sound will make the blood  tingle in men's veins and whole ar-  riiies and assemblages will sing it with  eyes weeping and burning, with heart  defiant of death, despot and devil."  The Terror cf Asthma comes like a  thief in the nignt with its dreadful  throttling, robbing its victim of  breath.

Constantinople's Ancient Names  Petrograd will have to change -ts  name several more times to equal the  record of Constantinople, says the London Chronicle. The Ottoman capital  was known as Lygos Until B.C. GS8,  when ir. blossomed forth into Byzantium and bore that name for nearly  800 years.  Byzantium, like Rome, was built on  seven hills, and this resemblance, led  I-'.eptinius Sererus to'rechristlan it  Nova Roma. On making the city the  capital of the Roman empire, Constantino the Great bestowed his own name  upon it, and ever since it has been  known as Constantinople in the western world. This name, however, is ignored by Orientals, who have called  it Jsthambul and Stambul since :ts  capture by the Turks in 115".  you  Amateur Wanted  Farmer���������Want a job eh?

Pin and Hold Your Position  in Business % Steadfastness in Attack  J3  ie  orfcs nun  The annual meeting of the  Grand Forks Poultry association was held last Friday eve^  ning in Secretary Hadden's  office, and it was well attend-,  ed and considerable business  was transacted.  It was proposed to hold a  joint winier poultry-show by  the poultrymen of Grand  Forks, Nelson and Trail. It  is anticipated that ,by this cooperation, it will eventually  prove to be the greatest poultry show of. the interior of  British Columbia.' It is intended to hold the show alternately in the three.towns.  The financial statemeut was  read, and it showed that the  cash receipts for the year had  been $278.41, and that there  was a cash balance on hand  of $27.86, with all accounts  paid in full to date.   .  The officers . for the next  year were elected, as follows:  President, John T. Lawrence;  vice-president, E. E. W. Mills;  secretary-treasurer, Walter E.  Hadden; executive committee,  T. Bowen, Chas. Wekell, H.  A. Leroy; auditor, J. A. McCallum; director to British  Columbia Poultry association, river.  A. D.-Morrison.  It was also decided to form  an Egg Circle, and to market  eggs, both in town and on the  outside, in cartons, with the  member's name on the carton.  Those wishing lo join should  put in their application to the  secretary. The membership  fee is $1,00.  There will be a special  meeting held- in Secretary  Hadden's- office on Friday  evening, March 19, in connection with the proposed Egg  Circle. Everybody interested  is heartily invited to attend.

Fortified  Work of "Digging in" Has Been Completed  , The army of excavators, who, early  la September, began to "dig Paris in,"  when a* German siege was threatened  have completed their work.  The general confederation of workers alone sent 5,000 volunteers who  provided their own digging tools, and  ���������were recompensed only by a daily ration of food. Thousands of Belgian  refugees hurried from their land, have  also-assisted in the work.  The city now lies in the centre of  an CLtronched camp whose diameter  is '-bout sixty miles and .whose cir-  euifli'o.n-i-ee is nearly 200 miles. Tab  is^ 'surrounded by trenches thorough  ly covered in with logs, and turf  through wii'.'u ioop hole's havo beeii  'left for ri'lo lire. Out beyond tlicm  are rifle pits and barbed wire entanglements placed in all positions  where  an  attack might  originate.  Still other precautions have been  taken in trvat of the advanced line  of trenches by the, digging of deep  ditches "whose existence has been  hidden by a light covering- of branch-  ��������� es of earth malting them invisible to  approaching cavalry, infantry or ar-  -tillery and forming veritable holes  into which an attacking'force'might  fall-a prey to the defenders' machine  guns .and rifles "* -        -  , The approaches to the ~ 'trendies  from the rear consist of subterranean  galleries which permit the relief to  be made without any exposure of the  men.  All along this front posts of observation have been established, each* of  which is constantly occupied at least  by three men provided with powerful  iield glasses and in direct telephonic  communication with headquarters  and with the artillery batteries, the  "location of which are" known only to  the headquarters' staff and to the  men who serve the guns, all of'which  are buried in the earth, only their  muzzles protruding. For the "benefit  of the gunners the ranges of all prominent objects in the front have been  measured.  Behind the lines of trenches runs  a light railroad line for the purpose  of bringing up ammunition and food  and also, if necessary, "reinforcements  of men to any point which, might be  menaced.

Danger in Fly: Poison  A   Movement on     Foot    to     Prohibit  Their  Manufacture  Because of the large and increasing  number of cases where children have  been poisoned by various fly poisons,  a determined effort is being made  by a number of medical association's  and other sources.interested in the  health of ^children to prohibit the  manufacture and ' sale of such products. f \  y In less than three months during  the summer-of 19111 forty-seven cases  of children-being poisoned-we're reported in the "newspapers of eighteen  states. - Of these, quite .a number  proved fatal a*nd many others were  expected to die.    * ���������   ���������   -  The danger to children in the use of  fly poisons lies in the fact that practically all of them contain arsenic in a  sufficient quantity to cause death or  very serious-illness, even wheii^buL a  little of the preparation is 'swallowed  by the child.  Children are particularly, attracted  to fly poisons because of tlie fact that  it is customary to mix sugar with the  poison in order to attract the,flies.  There were undoubtedly a great  many cases of children being poisoned  in this way which did not come to  public attention, especially because of  the fact that the symptoms of arsenical poisoning in children are almost  identical wirh the symptoms of cholera infantum. This /deadly infantile  disease prevails during' the fly season  and the doctors state that it is practically impossible to determine whether death was caused by cholera infantum or fly poison, unless the'children are actually seen drinking or sucking the poison.  The authorities in South Africa  have already taken steps to regulate  and ultimately eliminate the sale of  fly poisons, and it is hoped by the opponents of these preparations to secure prohibitory legislation iu the "various stages at an early, date.  In the meantime, parents having  small Children are parrycularly cautioned against the use of fly poisons  of any kind in. locations ,-where 'it is  within reach of the children.

Dr. Broom of Germiston, whose archaeological and geological researches  have made Lis name familiar to  scientists in Europe and America,  told of a specially interesting discovery north of Bloemfontein,. in the  course of operations designed to open  up'the eye of-the spring. To do this  it.was necessary to tunnel into a sand  hill and in the course of operations  the workmen came upon a large quantity of mammalian, bones associated  with human implements and a quantity of charred wood.  The signfiicance of the discovery  was not realized by the first finders,  but fortunately a Dutch woman iu the  district suspected they had scientific  value, and prevented the finds from  being dispersed. . Dr. Broom went  down and examined them. He found  that the bones were chiefly those of  hippopotami, .eland,'the huge, extinct  buffalo of South Africa, whose horns  used to attain a span' of twelve feet,  the gigantic Cape horse, long since extinct-which far exceeded the Clydesdale in size; an extinct variety of wild  beasts, the wart hog and a number  of small buck, .not' yet identified/-  Previous discoveries had * caused  scientists to believe that man* ' had  lived in South Africa contemporaneously with the extinct giant buffalo,  but the proofs available were inconclusive.- Dr. Broom regards this discovery .^is proving their co-existence  beyond cfoubt. The-find further proves  that extinct animals were killed and  their bones broken,.and indicates that  their flesh was cooked by some primitive race of human beings. The implements found included stone knives  and large spear heads, but no evidences were found of the presence of  what are regarded as typical bushman  stones. ' .  At present there' is "some doubt as to  the race to which the" human' beings  who hunted these giant buffalo belonged. In this connection it has  been rio'ted that the bones of an extinct buffalo and horse identical with"  those discovered in South Africa have  been found in Algeria. ' It is thought  possible, therefore, that the tribe  which hunted them migrated south  along-*with these extinct animals dur-,  ing the last ice ages. It is further  thought that those ancient people  were probably, white and of European  stocks. Dr. Broom has sent a representative -collection of the bones to  Cape Town.

Professional British football players  from all parts of the country have at  last made a strong rally to the colors and will go on active service  when the soccer' season'is ended. A  battalion of players has been formed  and permission given by Lord Kitch-  -ener to all- professional players joining who are under contract- for time  off for their engagements until the end  of the season.

It was arranged at first to form the  battalion from the London professionals only, but at a meeting recently  held so many of the country teams  were represented that it was decided  to receive applications from professionals throughout England. Mr. Joyn-  son-I-licks, M.P., who presided, announced amid intense enthusiasm  that the battalion will be attached to  the Middlesex, regiment,' who'are' well  known as "The Die Hards" and will be  at the front within a few months.  , At the close of the meeting-nearly  one hundred'professionals stepped  forward to enlist and after being-  sworn in were marched .off amid enthusiastic scenes to pass their medical examination.

Among the Vessels of the Fleet  - The Morning Post publishes the following from an officer "on board one  ot the British protected cruisers in the  Grand-Fleet: .  I'suppose you want to know a little  of how.we are getting'on'and^-what  we are doing. Of-course, I can't tell  you any details," but it is the same  thing���������waiting and . watching. Wo  know we shall get our chance eventually; then wo hope-to be in the limelight /i little. The point that is so  aggravating to us is that to the unthinking person we are doing nothing,  llerr Balliii," the manager o! the Hamburg-American line, says that we- are  lurking in ou:* harbors. That may be  so but how-does that statement-coil*;  cide with this one.of mine: From the  first week in August to the,middle of  November my ship has steamed, no  fewer than 17,000 miles, and that in  the North Sea! And of course we  have not' been alone., The' Grand  Fleet have been -with us, and, although they l.ave not covered so many  miles, -yet they have been at sea just  as long as my. ship, but owing to .our  high speed and the duties we, have  to perform���������scouting, rcconnoitcring,  etc.���������we have naturally travelled  many miles. M-Ierr -Ballin need not  worry; if they want Lus, well, they  know where to find us. Of course, the  Germans.can ,say the same to us, that  wo know .where to find them. Oh, yes,  we-know exactly, Kiel, Wilholmshaven,  Cuxhaven-and Heligoland. People who  don't understand.will say: "Why don't  you go there and attack them?" Not  much! We have our-own plans, and  they are certainly not going to take  our splendid fleet into their mine-infested areas and under, their fortresses. Every mile- of their coast  bristles with heavy-guns.  Think we are going to attack them  in narrow waters, giving their submarines just the opportunity they aro so  anxiously looking for? We play our  game; not theirs. Their fortresses  and shore guns and all the money and  swill that have been expended on  them are all wasted as fartas the British-fleet in concerned. We';ave not out  to light fortresses; at all events not  stationary ones. We don't mind their  floating fortresses���������to wit, their  ships. Besides, what do you put guns  in a ship for? Simply so thai you can  move from place to-place. Ships, after all, are only movable fortresses. If  they elect to remain in their defended harbors, well,, they must; but no  matter how long they stay they will  not wear down our vigilance. .That  they will be bound to come out sooner  or later there can be no doubt. They  are not increasing their efficiency by  remaining in-harbor, and it is well  known in naval history that to remain  in harbor is fatal to your chances of  success.  We are adding, to our, efficiency  every, day. We take every opportunity of "practice, gunnery,-torpedo, etc.,  and also1 battle tactics, accustoming  every one to his exact- duties. Our  ships' know exactly what our commander in chief's plans are. Constant  practice under varying conditions of  weather, light "and position have enabled* every captain to know exactly  what to do undei\ each condition in  which we might And ourselves. Don't  think that is something? The enemy  cannot do that, bottled up as they arc.  Don't you worry. Our Admiralty- and  the 'commander in chief of the home  fleet know exactly -.what they are  about, and if you are asked, "What is.  the navy doing?" all-you have to_ tell  them is that we are simply - doing  what .our navy was built for, "to-.Tide  .the waves- and to defend'our shores.'"  ���������. But when the- suitable time arrives  we shall do more than that, I feel  confident. , Our navy is and must'"be  our first line of defence, and without  it v/e are lost. .We have lost some  ships, but, then, wo expected to. You  cannot expect to make an omelet without breaking .eggs. But, still, ' our  losses are considerably less than we  made provision for, and even if our  enemies do lurk -in their harbors we  have given them something to remember each time they liavc shown themselves. .When, ydu remember tho  .number of, ships we have in the North  Sea and the activity of their submarines, and also tho way they have  strewn mines all over the place, you  must admit that our casualties have  been very light. It is only thoughtless  people who suggest that we .are doing  very little. Just suppose that our  fleet were withdrawn for a short time,  do you realize, what would happen?  It is really worth an1 hour's thought,  and after,you have thought'for an  hour you will say, "Thank God for our  navy!"  ",   In Germany  1. :ports Entirely Cease���������Supply Exhausted '  ��������� That' there is an almost desperate  demand for rubber in Germany is now  evident from tho continual attempts  l-'eiug ' made to secure the material.  Before the war got properly under'  way, there were several English firms  that unwittingly allowed their rubber  to leak out and ultimately be received  in German hands, but,now they understand the importation tricks of the  Germans, and the British government  'has issued an .order .prohibiting the export from England.      . ,:.  An outstanding fact to be remembered is that nearly all the plantation  rubber available . every year���������about  70,000 tons���������is produced:within the  British empire and is controlled by  British firms. There is a little grown  in the Dutch Bast Indies, and American houses control-a few eastern plantations. But the great' bulk" of the  'plantation rubber is brought, to London, and in normal times, large quantities are, transhipped ��������� to Germany.  Henceforth io supplies will be sent  out of the country except under a license. Presumably large quantities  will continue to be shipped.to our Allies. Within the last three months the"  value of. rubber sent to Itussia���������largely, it is stated, for army snow boots  ���������has been enormous, and France will  be.^ble to take all that she wants.  Of about 2,000 tons lying at Antwerp  it is understood that only 100 tons :.*e-  mained when the German took possessions of the port.  Prohibition of exports means, among  other things, that the representatives  In London of American firms will not  be able to fulfill their tontracts. The  United States herself requires large  quantities of rubber, but there is reason to believe that rubber has been  sent from this country to the United  States and has been re-exported there  to Germany via Italy or Holland.  ,  Although merchants in tho United  States at present will not be' able to  receive supplies of plantation rubber  through London, there will still be the  wild rubber available. Brazil annually  exports about 40,000 tons, of which  rather more than half conies to this  country and rather less than half goes  to the United States. The latter country usually takes about a third of the  world's supply, so, should she receive  the whole of the Brazilian production,  there would remain little for export to  Europe.     .  Normally, German liners share with  British vessels the carriage of the rubber from Para; today there are only  British ships to carry it. Any attempts  to ship the rubber by different routes  must immediately become known.  The four stages of hair, according  to a locarbarber, are: Bald, Fuzz, la,  Waa.  What War Will Cost to the De-  -feated  Added to the increasing expense  of war, .the cost of peace in the present war will probably be the greatest that a losing nation has ever  paid. The defeated power will undoubtedly be required o pay an  enormous price, for past history  shows that a winning nation invariably demands huge compensation  for its losses.  Count Bernstoff, German ambassador to the .United States, has stated  that the Kaiser, if ' he conquers  France, will exact an indemnity of  $2,500,000,000; all the French colonies, including Morocco, Algeria  and Tunis would become German  property and 3,000,000 rifles, ��������� 3,000  guns and 40,000 horses would be  confiscated as spoils of war.  Germany is noted foi\ excessive  demands from the nations it defeats  in war. The recent war fine of ������2,-  003,000 on Antwerp is an eaxmple.  At the time of the Franco-Prussian  War. Bismarck endeavored to obtain  from France the huge indemnity of  ������250,000,000 sterling. England made  strong representations to Berlin, and  succeeded in having this amount reduced to ������200,000,000, payable in  four years. France, however, handed over "the last coin of the fine two  j'ears and seven months' after the  conclusion of the war, but not until  then weru German troops moved  from the country.  On the other hand, it is the popular belief in Great Britain that when  Gormany has been conquered she  will be forced to surrender her entire navy, ' destroy her armaments,  disband her army, pay an enormous  indemnity to France as well as restore Alsace arid Lorraine, and other  indemnities to Belgium^ and to  England as well as large territorial  concessions'to Russia.  Modern victors are inclined to punish those they conquer more severely than has been the ".ase in the past.  Japan spent millions in winning the  Russo-Japanese Avar, and made Russia pay heavily for it. The latter  country, in addition to paying heavy  fines, had to restore to the Japs the  portion of Manchuria it had occupied  and to give up Port Arthur.   .  German Conception of War  The reason why Field Marshal von  Hindenburg has been suddenly idtol-  ized is that, in German eyes, he is  saving the eastern provinces from  invasion. The German public care little about' his enormous losses, and  are even prepared to transform his  defeats into victories; so long aa he  can manage to keep the campaign on  other side of the frontier. The German  conception of war is that it is a glorious thing, so long as it rages around  the homes of other people.���������London  Timea.

No doubt there has been some organization of the same sort effected  also in Canada!  Russia Making- Big Strides  Country   of   Vast   Possibilities   Lacks  Sufficient Sea Coast .for Development  of  Commerce  The progress of Russia has been  tremendous in the last decade,'says a  writer in the Popular Science Monthly. The years since the Japanese war  have sieen the adoption of a constitutional regime, the rapid spread of industrialism, the greatest agrarian reforms since emancipation, and a remarkably intelligent study and handling of the problems of primary education, agriculture and intemperance.  Along with /this has come a clear  appreciation of the richness of her resources. "In the markets of the  world there exists today a famine in  meat, lumber and breadstuffs," says  the Russian economists, and Russia  has, or can develop, all three t> an indefinite amount; Russia has a geographic basis for a great nation such  as is possessed by no ether people  unless it be our own.  It is wanting, however, in one important respect; it lacks an adequate  coast line. Russia's sea coast.is too  small for so large a state and she is  bound to demand more. Indeed, that is  what'.she has been doing for centuries,  her coastward movement has been in  progress for at least four hundred  years and Ave are Avitnesses today of  another gigantic step in this direction.  The Germans block the way, and ultimately, combined Avith them, the  Swedes and Danes.  That Russia Avith her population of  175,000,000, increasing at the rat3 of  nearly three millions a year and with  resources so vast and undevclop-jd  that they can only be roughly estimated, Avill bo kept permanently bottled  up is not likely. Her lines of least resistance and tho conquest of an outlet  by way of Constantinople to the  world's trade is as inevitable as is its  geographic reasonableness. Toward  the Persian Gulf the Avay is also opsn  and inviting. Indeed, everywhere in  Asia she has the unique advantage of  internal linec of development and  therefore also of attack. Geographically the serious ^menace .to British  Avorld supremacy does not lie in Germany, but iri Russia.*  How Britain Gains  The British victory practically equalizes poAvers in the European conflict,  'which means that from the standpoint  of the practical Avarrior the advantage  is very much in favor of the English.  For. it is evident that if Great Britain  and Germany should continua to sacrifice ship for ship the day Avould soon  come Avhen the kaiser's Avater armament would be non-existent and the  King's government Avould still be able  to marshal perhaps the most powerful  fleet on earth.���������Detroit Free Press.  "BRITAIN   AS   GERMANY'S VASSAL  THE TITLE  Remarkable for the Author's Spirit of Prophecy in  Dealing with  the German Ambition and Determination to Rule the  World, no Matter How the End is Attained    -  crushing France and acquiring domination _of Europe, North Africa and  Asia' Minor.. In plain language, General von Bernhardi asserts that Britain must become Germany's -A*assal  either  through  war or submission'.  Mr. Barker, in a preface to the Avorlt  calls attention to the fact that diplomatically and militarily, Germany has  carried out every one of von Bern-  hardi's recommendations contained in  this volume, adding:  "His latest book is perhaps the  most remarkable political indiscretion  of modern times."       - ���������  Von Bernhardi has given considerable space in his book to the,United  States. He thinks that this country'  should fight. England and that the  United States is making a great mistake in its advocacy of peace and arbitration treaties, although he excused the policy on 'the ground of .tre^  mendous population,    in accessibility  Under the illuminating title ��������� of  "Britain as Germany's Vassal," the  latest work of General Frcdrich von  Bernhardi who attained international  prominece two years ago by his' iioav  well knoAvn Avork, "'Germany and the  Next War," has been translated into  England and has just reached this  country. Written in J913, this latest  work of Germany's greatest advoca'.e  of expansion by Avar, is, like its predecessor, remarkable for the author's  spirit of prophecy in so far as the intentions and acts of his OAvn country  are concerned. "  Much' which- the volume contains  might have been "written since- the  Avar began and would be a. fairly accurate account of what has actually  happencd. After a careful perusal of  the Avork it is impossible to escape  the conclusion that General von Bernhardi either knew the military program of his country' and hoped by a  strong advocacy, of it in his- public  writings to push'it to speedy consummation, or has been gifted with remarkable powers of divination.  The translation of this Avork of von  Bernhardi has been done by a well  known student of German conditions,  Mr. J. Ellis Barker, who is best  knoAvn for his work "Modern Germany."  In this latest work, von Bernhardi  has traversed much of the same  ground covered by his orginal book.  Again is' found .the doctrine that Germany must' strike hard and quick to  crush France, that war is a necessary  factor hit the development-of culture  and the upbuilding oT a nation, that  peace breeds decadence, and that  treaties Avere made to be broken and  should never be seriously regarded ..s  binding.  But tho author now goes to limits  which Avere never dreamed of by the  readers of his other volume. By Avar,  he says, Germany must acquire supremacy in Eurpoe and the Mediterranean first, and ioIIoav this with the  mastery of the world.  "Decadent England," described as  Germany's chief enemy, must be  made subservient to Germany either  by Avar or by an "alliance," under  Avhich she must give up her naAral  supremacy, quit tl.e Triple Entente,  abandon her allies and disarm by distributing her fleet over the Avorld,  nieanAvhile leaving Germany alone- in  jand in exhaustible resources, Avhich ,*.e  believes responsible for a "fancied"  security.  With his characteristic aptness the  author has in his AA*ork hit squarely on  a problem Avhich has been agitating  the United States for some time, and  Avhich Avas the subjrui, of the president's message recently���������the question  of preparedness. On this subject von.  Bernhardi has no illusions. Without  any particular reference to the United  States, he says:  "The greatest crime that can be  committed agaim,*: a nation is the neglect of its armed poAver and the diminution of its armed .forces. When  army and navy, are neglected, or lose  prestige, the national organism sickens."  Wizard as he has been in foreseeing -"eA-ents in Europe, Aron Bernhardi  reveals one mistake in his new book.  Urging Avar upon the Entente powers,  "although it may lead to Avar similar  to the Seven Years' War," he predicted that there would be delay in the  sending loathe Continent of an English expeditionary force: He based his  belief in the crushing, of France and  the simplifying of Germany's task to  a very large extent on this. At the  same time he says unhesitatingly that  if all the pcAve**s of the entsnto  should attack Germany at the same  time���������Avhich is what has happened���������  Germany "may meet defeat r.nd heavy  and terrible times."  Egypt an English Province  Khedive Made a False Move When He  Consented  to   a   Holy   Wsr'  Egypt of the far away Hyksos, of  Moses, of Saladin, of Harun-al-Rachiri.  has now by formal decree passed under the protectorate of Great Britain.  Ever since 1SS2-'England has had paramount influence in Egypt, although  Turkey claimed suzerainty and the  Khedive Avas allowed to conduct affairs of state Avith genuine Oriental  display. The only dountry that might  have objected to England's annexation  is France but under the circumstances  France is all too Avilling to accede to  the British claim.  P-obably of all the countries ..involved in the Avar Egypt had most to  gain by remaining absolutely neutral.  And certainly Egypt had every reason  to be loyal-to-England. After many  stormy ��������� decades the English brought  peace" to Egypt from the delta of the  Nile up to the further frontiers of the  Sahara. Millions of dollars Avere  spent in irrigation works, and the desert became fertile. Instead-of revenging Gordon's death in Khartoum  a magnificent college was built for  the benefit of the natives^ Lord Cro-  nier reorganized the finances, saved  the country from bankruptcy and  made it affluent. And yet England's  attitude Avas only ad\*isory and directive.  The Khedive, influenced by the Sultan of Turkey as overlord and head of  the Moslems, made a false move Avhen  he consented to the Holy War. It is  difficult to see how Great Britain  could do other than deposO him and  annex his ancient kingdom. As a  strategic move the action was necessary, and considering all that England  has invested in Egypt, the annexation  will appear to the world as a measure  of justice.���������Philadelphia Evening  Ledger.  Insulting the Emperor  Sacredness of German Majesty Guarded   Very   Rigorously  Imprisonment of from two months  io five yea.'s is the usual punishment  inflicted upon German subjects avuo  insult their Emperor or members of,  his family. According to the courts  an "insult" may mean anything said  or done, whether in public or private,  Avith or Avithout the intention of offending, Avhich may be deemed irreverent.  In AntAverp recently several citizens were arrested for expressing,  displeasure Avith the excesses of the  German soldiers. A town official in  conversation Avith a German butcher,  Avho criticized the action of the Belgian government towards Germans,  remarked that that Avas as nothing  compared with, the Zeppelin attacks,  and the killing of Avomen and children. .   ���������  ���������-  The butcher informed the authorities,' and the Belgian official waa  arrested and sentenced to two  months' imprisonment. About ten  similar cases occurred within a few  days.  . Statistics collected in 1803, at the  end. of the first decade of the present emperor's reign, showed that  since his accession to the ^throne  much more than 1,000 years of imprisonment had been inflicted upon,  offenders under section 95 of tho  code. Convictions haA-e been notoriously more numerous than before.  Scarcely a week elapses Avithout the  notice in the general press of" three  or four trials of this character. To  the German it is not a laughing  matter. Nevertheless, it remains  true that no section in the Avhole  criminal code is s-o frequently- broken. .     -      --���������  Rubber and Oil Supply  There are two products Avithout  which the operations of the German  armies are bound to be most seriously  hampered. The one is rubber and the  other is oil. With Russia establishing  itself in Galicia the oil supplies from  the fields there -will lr; cut off, and the  measures which have been taken  should prevent any largo quantity getting into Germany from other  sources. The present difficulty is Italy,  but na doubt we shall be able to see  that that, country does not obtain  more than its normal imports.���������Westminster Gazette.

He at once threw up  his work, paid his own passage over  to London, and on arrival wandered  about making inquiries until, by a  great piece of luck, he heard ot one  of his OAvn officers who had been  returned wounded from the front. To  him ho preferred his request that he  should be sent out immediatly to  bis old regiment to take his share in  fighting for the King Emperor. His  request was acceded to, and he is  now at the front doing his part in  the splendid Avork performed by the  Indian army."
