The "Red-Cross" is an heraldic  symbol agreed upon at Geneva in 1864,  os rendering neutral all persons, supplies and buildings under" its' protection."" It can be used only for the aid  of tho sick and wounded in war. Any  use of it to solicit funds or to make  gain for any other purpose is a legal  offence under a British Act which has  been  "proclaimed"' in  Canada.-.  2. The Red Cross Society is'an international "voluntary society for the  relief of the sick' and wounded in war.  It is recognized- by all nations ,except  China "and Mexico, as being the official  channel for such voluntary assistance.  No other society'has the'right to use  the Red Cross symbol or name.    ��������� ~   .  3. Jt acts as a voluntary auxiliary  to the Army Medical Department in  each-country, securing additional personnel and supplies for the care of  the' sick and wounded. In time of  war its supplies aro at the disposal of  the various medical units connected  with the Army Medical Dept. of the  country.  4. This use of voluntary ' assistance as an auxiliary to the official  medical. department, is probably due  to the fact that' it is- only "within the  last sixty years that the idea of a properly equipped medical branch' of the  military service has been recognized,  and no government has so far thought  proper to raise the taxes necessary to  provide -a fully equipped medical de-'  partment for the army out of the national exchequer; instead the Ordinance Dept. supplies a minimum equipment, relying upon the Red Cross Society to make this equipment efficient  when extraordinary fighting occurs.  Whether incidental or accidental, there  can be no doubt that the channel for  personal' and,voluntary service which  is .afforded through the Red Cross-Society, is highly prized in time of war,  and any attempt to deprive people of  this opportunity would certainly provoke popular opposition, as it would  mean paying through the taxes what  is now given willingly." From a strictly logical point of view, however, the  Government might be expected to provide effectively, for all contingencies in  time of war.   But war is not logical.  5. The Red Cross Society is organized by countries, the Canadian Red  Cross being a branch of the British  Red Cross Society. The British Red  Cross Society is responsible for the  Red Cross supplies for the entire British Army, including the Canadians.  But the Canadian Red Cross Society  is relieving the British Society by taking over as far as possible the care of  the Canadian troops. For this reason  the Canadian; Society has not paid  over its funds into-the British Red  Cross, but is administering them for  the Canadians through an-L Executive  Headquarters at Toronto, with the assistance of the Canadian Red Cross  Commissioners, Col. Hodgetts, in England.      ..."'���������''-.  Within Canada there is a Provincial  Branch in each Province except Ontario, in which case the Dominion  Headquarters acts as the Provincial  Branch, and in British Columbia where  there are several well organized City  Branches. The policy of the Canadian  Council is to leave the organization  of each Province in the hands of the  Provincial Branch.  Besides the Charter Branches of tho  Society, there are many hundreds of  Societies giving aid to Red Cross work,  but none of these are entitled to use  the name "Red Cross Society,"- which  is reserved for the Charter Branches.  The charter may be procured on application at the Head Office, 77 King  Street East, Toronto. There must be  at least enough subscribing members  of the Red Cross Society to hold official positions, but there is no rule  regarding the numbers who constitute  a branch. The annual subscription is  $2.00 with full voting privileges, while  there is also an associate membership  at $1.00 per year, and also a life membership on payment of $25.00.  It is of the greatest importance to  Red Cross work that the sympathies  of men, as well as of women, should be  enlisted. The appeal to care for the  sick and wounded is just as insistent  on men as on. women, and very few  women have command of any money  beyond that of their household and  personal expenses. It it, therefore, 01  the. first importance that the work  should be presented to men, and that  all new branches should be encouraged .to enroll men as well as women  in their membership. On the ��������� other  hand the work of women in gleaning  the smaller sums of money, and also  in making supplies, must not be underestimated. ��������� " s ,""  ' It'is impossible 'to gi\4 any budget  statement for the-Red Cross Society,  because its work' is very .largely ,the  provision, of emergency supplies 'to the  military hospitals, but there is,v great  need of an ' assured income;, and  monthly subscriptions, to be paid during the- period of the war, will be  warmly welcomed as well as gifts for  specific purposes.  Full details of the supplies needed  can be obtained in a little leaflet entitled "Suggestions for Work" distributed free of charge from the Head Office,. 77 King Street East, Toronto, or  from Local Branches, to anyone who  wishes to.help .in this way.  '6. The Canadian Society distributes  its supplies and funds through its  Commissioner in England," who works  in connection with the British Red  Cross Society.  There is a Canadian warehouse in  England on which the Canadian Medical Officers can indent for supplies,  and there is also a depot at Boulogne*"  furnished with motor lorry, in order  that Canadian supplies can be distributed to the Canadian Medical units in  France. Those which cannot be reached from a Canadian source will be supplied by the British Red Cross Society.  7.    The nature of the assistance giv-  TEN  YEARS  AGO  en by the Red Cross Society is as follows:���������Motor .ambulances, hospital  trains and hospital ships are provided  by the Red Cross Society, in addition  to those supplied through the Army  Medical Corps. Canada'.has provided  over fifty motor ambulances, aud a car  on the -Princess Christian's Hospital  Train.  Fully trained nurses are engaged  and paid to work in the hospitals receiving the sick and wounded. Specific  hospitals are given over' by the military authorities to be equipped by the  Red Cross Society. The hospital thus  given over to the Canadian Red Cross  Society is the Duchess of Connaught  Red Cross Hospital at Cliveden, with  five hundred and ten beds, which is  the base hospital for wounded Canadians in England. The entire personnel of this hospital is provided by the  Canadian Militia Department, and the  whole equipment by the Canadian Red  Cross Society.  The main work of the Red Cross Society is, however, to supplement the  medical and surgical supplies needed  for use in the Army Medical Department. On the day on which the news  of the battle of Langemarck was received in Canada, a cable was received from the Canadian Commissioner  asking for money to supply the demands from the Canadian hospitals at  the seat of. war. This crossed a cable  from the. office to the Commissioner  telling him to supply all needs of Canadian hospitals at the expense of the  Red Cross Society.  These hospitals will also be able  to draw on the stores of garments  and dressings from the warehouse in  London and the depot of the Society  at Boulogne.  The Red Cross Society also furnishes all kinds of "extra comforts" to  soldiers in hospital, and for this purpose needs money for the purchase of  tobacco, candies, books, games, etc.  S. How to Help.���������The need of the  Red Cross Society at this moment is  for funds. The emergencies for which  the Red Cross exists have only just  begun so far as Canada is concerned.  It. appears as if the casualties at Langemarck alone will nearly exhaust the  supplies of goods sent over from Canada, although about a million and a  half articles have been sent.  After a battle there is no time to  wait to send supplies from Canada for  immediate use. Therefore, we must  have large funds on hand so that supplies urgently needed may be purchased at once. Meanwhile, the women of  Canada should be encouraged to go on  making supplies on the lines of the  "Suggestions for Work," so as to re-  (From the Hedley Gazette of June  29th, 1905.) '  Jas. N.

Mrs. Colbeck left on Monday's stage  for her home in Vancouver. Mrs. Colbeck has taught Hedley school for the  past year with signal success. While  it is not decided whether she will return after the holidays, the probability is that she may not. During her  term here excellent progress has been  made and perfect harmony has prevailed. The decision to return remains  wholly with herself, and should she  decide to do so the decision will give  the utmost satisfaction to all parents  who have children attending the  school. Before leaving she was presented by the pupils with a purse containing a $20 gold piece.  / *  SOCIALISTS   MAKE  APPEAL  FOR  PEACE  German Party Declares Itself���������Want War  Brought to an End and Friendly  Relations Restored.  Berlin, June 20. ��������� The managing  committee of the Social Democratic  party in Germany has caused to be  published in the Vorwaerts a full-page  appeal for peace.  The interesting document declares  the people want peace, and the government is called upon, in the name  of humanity, to make known its readiness to enter negotiations.  The appeal is published under the  heading, "Social Democracy and  Peace..'' It begins with a reference to  tho fact that the Socialists' foresaw  the war. The}' worked vainly for an  international understanding but when  war did come thev placed themselves  at the disposal of the Fatherland. It  then refers to the declaration of the  party in the Reichtag on August 4,  1914, which said: n.  Bring War to End.  "We demand, as soon as safety has  been secured and our opponents are  inclined to peace, -that the war be  brought' to an end through a peace  which will make possible friendships  with neighboring nations."  NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY OUT  Latest Edition of McKim's Shows War  Has  Not Seriously Affected  Canadian Journals.  It is now nearly a quarter of a century since, Mr. A. McKim. who established the first independentadver-  tising agency in this country, completed the rather ambitious task of publishing the first Directory of Canadian  Publications. The nine successive  editions of this valuable work provide  the most complete and detailed record  available of the growth of Canadian  periodicals.  The 1915 edition shows tliat the  great war has not seriously affected  the newspayers of Canada. While the  birthrate of. new publications has le-  ceived a check, and the death rate of  the weak ones has perhaps increased a  trifle, most of the leading papers, particularly the dailies, show very healthy  incieases in circulation. Three metropolitan dailies have reached or passed  the hundred thousand mark.  A census of the papers listed and described in the 1915 Directory shows  nearly 150 dailies, seven tri-weeklies,  45 semi-weeklies, over-1,005 weeklies,  about 40 bi-weeklies or semi-monthlies,  250 monthlies, three bi-monthlies and  IS quarterlies���������a total of over 1,575  publications.

Continued on Pago Two  The Dominion Government horso  buyers who were scheduled to reach  Hedley on Thursday afternoon, June  24th, failed to turn up on that day,  owing to the number of horses brought  in for sale at Princeton, where they  selected 25 head out of a, bunch of  about 125. At 9:30 o'clock on Friday  morning the buyers arrived by automobile, and spent a couple of hours  here "trying out" about thirty head,  resulting in the purchase of but three  horses���������one from It.-J. Edmond, one  from Chas. Nelson, and another from  Dan Allison. The prices averaged  $170.00 each.  ly to every 1,500 families. From this  one would infer that for a comparatively new country, Canada is well read.  A. McKim Limited report the usual  keen demand for the Canadian Newspaper Directory, which sells at $2.00.  Its red-banded, gold-stamped green  cover has become a familiar sight on  the desks of advertisers^ publishers  and business men everywhere who are  interested in Canada.  WAR TAX STAMPS  The local branch of the Bank of  British North America advise us that  they have been appointed by the Government as agents for the Inland Revenue Department, for the purpose of  .selling War Tax stamps. The public  are requested to use the special War  Tax stamps on their cheques, drafts,  etc., and the bank is now'prepared to  sell such stamps on application.

It  should  bo.   well  know   to  British   people   in   the   United  'States that it is  not  lawful   to  enlist men in that country for  service  in   the    British    army.  If  such    activities   have    been  conducted in  San Francisco or  elsewhere in the United  States  the agents  or volunteers  who  have   been   engaged   in    them  have    exposed   themselves    to  severe penalties.    The  enquiry  into this matter   has   not  been  completed and it may be  found  that even if the complaints  are  in the main true the proceeding  do not  amount  to   enlistment.  Casualty  lists   received    every  day indicate that many men   in  the   Canadian  contingents  are  next of kin  to  persons  in   the  United    States,    and   probably  some hundreds of United States  citizens are serving at the front.  There is no law  to prevent residents or citizens of the United  States enlisting  in  the  British  service, but the  enlisting  must  not take place on United States  territory.    A  number   of    men  may meet in San Francisco and  discuss the   question   of  enlistment.    They may agree to go to  Canada  Or  Great Britain  and  join the army.    This would not  be enlistment and it would  not  be unlawful.���������News-Advertiser.  The need for more publicity  in the matter of naturalizing  aliens in Canada ,is becoming  more apparent every day, and  the necessity for amending the  law on the subject should be  urged on the government with  out delay. At present the proceedings are surrounded with  far too much secrecy and there  are men in tlie Similkameen  district who, if their intentions  had been know, would never in  this world have been able to  call themselves British subjects.  As the law stands at present it  is impossible for any objection  to be filed, for the very reason  that the name of the applicant  is not made public.  fighting men in a vast number.

DALTON, Manager  THE RED CROSS SOCIETY  Continued from I'.ige One  Germany says that the use of  poisonous gas is not unnecessarily inhumane and that all an  enemy needs to do to escape its  effects is to withdraw. Of  course, but is there any place  on earth to which they could  withdraw that Germany does  not want?  Great Britain has reason to  feel cheerful at the thought  that the war is not a short one.  All Germany's original plans  provided for defeating the allies  in a few months. That scheme  has been frustrated and the  entente powers have gained  time to prepare to crush  Germany.  A steedy stream of enquiries  for British Columoia timber is  being received by the Minister  of Lands from British, Australian and New Zealand firms.  Those come both through the  Department of Trade and Commerce Ottawa, and direct, the  latter as a result of letters sent  stock our warehouse in England; but  money is the prime need because money can be turned into exactly the sort  of supplies wanted at the moment, and  money is the only thing which will  buy drugs and surgical appliances.  Inquiries should be always referred  to a local Branch where a local Branch  exists; but. if not, all inquiries should  be directed to the Head Office of the  Society, 77 King Street East, Toronto,  either to Mr. Noel Marshall, Chairman  of Executive, or Mrs. Plumptre. Corresponding Secretary.  Relations Between Roil Cross Society  and  SI. John Ambulance Association and Brigade  At the beginning of the war, in order to save confusion, the Duke of  Connaught called a Committee meeting at which were present representatives of the Militia Department, the  Red Cross Society, and the St. John  Ambulance Association and Brigade.  This Committee is known as the Central Relief Committee.  At this meeting it was arranged that  the Red Cross should issue all appeals  for money in connection with war relief, while the St. John Ambulance  should take charge of. all personnel to  be sent to the front. In accordance  with this arrangement the St. John  Ambulance Association is nominating  and selecting the nurses to serve in  England, and the St. John Ambulance  Brigade is sending forward a detachment of male orderlies to serve at the  seat of war.  In both cases all financial obligations are being met from the funds collected by the Red Cross Society. All  instruction in voluntary nursing and  First Aid is in the hands of the St.  John Ambulance, and also the formation of voluntary aid detachments  where such may be deemed necessary.  Field  Comforts for Fighting Men  People in Canada who have" friends  fighting at the front desire to augu-  ment their kits as furnished' by the  Ordinance  Department.  As this work can not be done by  the Red Cross Society, which works  only for the sick and wounded, it became necessary to find a channel for  gifts for the fighting men. With this  end in view tlie National Service Committee, -which is a Committee of Presidents of women's nationally organized  societies, arranged to send forward  supplies for the fighting men to the  Canadian War Contingent Association  in London, England, the President of  which is Sir George Perley and the  Secretary,  Mr.  J.  G.  Colmer.  By Courtesy of the Red Cross Society these goods are allowed to pass  through their headquarters warehouse in Toronto, and through the  shipping warehouse, and they are distributed to the Canadian units at the  front through the Canadian War Contingent Association, which is in active  co-operation with the military forwarding offices both in England and  in France.  Such articles as socks, coloured  handkerchiefs, tobacco, cigarettes,  pipes, candies, playing cards, games,  etc., etc., have been distributed to the  DALY AVE.  nEDLEY, B.C.

If you have anyone visiting you, or  if anyone if going away on a trip, give  in the names at the Gazette office.  These items of personal interest may  seem trivial here! but to readers at a  distance who were formerly residents  of the district they are of interest "and  are sought after.  O. P. Dalton returned on Monday  afternoon from Vancouver, coming in  by way of Merritt. Although Mr.  Dalton has obtained some relief for  his eyes by a change of glasses, they  are still giving him trouble. He was  met at Princeton by Geo. Riddle in the  Palace Livery auto, who took Mrs. G.  H. Sproule and Mrs. Dalton along.  There will be a "smoker" in the opera house on Saturday night, the proceeds of which' will be used to purchase  tobacco to send to the Similkameen  and Kootenay boys now in active service at the front. There will be songs  by local artists, as well as several  bouts and wrestling matches. The  Hedley Brass Band will also be in  attendance.  The prize lists for the Keremeos  Flower Show are now out of the hands  of the printers and ready for distribution by the officers of the Women's  Institute, under whose auspices the  show will lie held. It is scheduled to  take place on September flth, and the  present indications are that there will  be a large display of floral exhibits  from all over the valley.  Mr.-and Mrs. S. L. Smith entertained  a number.of friends at "The Firs" on  Monday night, in what was undoubtedly the most enjoyable house party  of the season here. The affair was  given as a farewell to Miss Walker,  who left the next day for the coast.  Dancing and cards were indulged in,  intermingled with social chat. A very  dainty supper was provided by the  hostess, after which the party broke  up about midnight, everyone present  feeling that they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  RED CROSS DANCE A 'SUCCESS  Four Auto Loads of Princeton Visitors-  Enjoyable Evening Spent and  Tidy Sum 'Realized.  The Red Cross dance given in the  opera house on Fiiday night through  the combined efforts of the ladies of  Hedley and the brass band, was what  might be termed a-"howling success,"  both from the standpoint of enjoyment  and the financial result, as the affair  netted about $83.00 for the use of:the  ladies- in purchasing materials, etc.,  necessary in Red Cross work.  Dancing was,commenced about nine  o!clock,   and   continued   until  nearly  3:30, .with an intermission for supper,  which was supplied in the hall by the  ladies. The music was provided by. the  brass-band, and although it was rather  noisy to permit of much conversiition  during dances,-nevertheless it was-pronounced as entirely, satisfactory.       " ���������  '   The attendance,was very large, -and  although the new hall is very spacious  it was.taxed to its utmost capacityon  Friday last. Tnaddi.tion to those present from the town'and a few from the  hill,  the numbers were considerably  augmented by four auto-loads from'  Princeton (containing about 20 people)  and it is needless to say that we feel  greatly' indebted to  these people'for  their assistance, -'.'

JULY 1, 1915  IWISAMA-PACIFIC EXPOSITION  (Continued from l.is-t week.)  , There are many hands. On any day  world famous bands may be heard in  a number of locations where the environment admirably suits, the music.  Among the musicians that will be  heard are Gabriel Pares and his seven-  ,. ty musicians front Paris, many of  whom have already seen service in the  army of Prance; Creatore, Thaviu,  Sousa, Conway, Mollenhaurer, the Boston Symphony orchestra and the  'Philippine band.  The. official exposition orchestra of  eighty performers, under the alternate  ' direction of August Bosc of Paris and  Max Bendix will play during the entire  exposition period. The official exposi-  ;' tion band is under the direction of  Charles H. Cassasa.  The work of installing the exhibits  from the nations of Europe brought to  the  exposition  by  the  United   States  collier   "Jason"   has  been   completed.  The  3500  tons    measurement    cargo  brought to the docks of the exposition  by    the    "Jason"   contains   priceless  works  of art from  practically  every  country of Europe.   Spain's contribution alone amounts to 150 packages of  choicest works of art and manufacture.  Although  England  is  not  officially  represented at the exposition the "Jason" brought 404 cases from that country, representing the participation by  individuals and firms, ninety-three of  these cases containing displays from  England's possessions in India;   England's exhibits include machinery, liquors, earthenware, models of transatlantic liners, china, laces, woodenware,  pictures, furniture, sculpture, etc. The  government of, Greece contributed 191  cases in which are contained some of  the famous statuary of classical days  from Athens,  Piraeus  and  other  art  centers of Greece.   Prance has divided  her exhibits into two sections, one by  the government itself and the other by  manufactures.    The  main  portion  of  the government exhibit will be installed in the French pavilion, which is  built as a replica of the famous Palace  of Legion of Honor, the other official  exhibits being placed in the Palace of  Fine Arts and the Palace of Manufactures. * The value of the government's  display is approximately five million  francs.    The  lists  include  wonderful  bronzes, paintings, a niagnificant display of  wax  dolls, pastels, tapestry,  portraits, works of art and sculpture, I  .water paintings, veilings, laces, shawls  carpets  and hundreds of volumes of  valuable  books  from  famous  French  libraries^  Included in the French government  exhibit at the Palace of Fine Arts at  the Panama-Pacific International Exposition is a group of wax dolls, valued  at two million francs, triumphs of  French art along these lines. A rnin-  ature theater has been erected and  the dolls are placed there representing great French actors and actresses.  The wax dolls of Prance are known  over the world for beauty and artistic  finish and the exhibit sent to the exposition by the French government is  said to be the finest- sent to any foreign affair. Another particularly valuable and interesting feature of the  French participation is a portfolio of  autographs belonging to the Commissioner General M. Albert Tirman.  Such illustrious names as that of Napoleon are iu the book, which contains the autographs of many other  makers of history during the last century both of French and other nations.  The portfolio is considered priceless  and is on exhibition ct the French  pavilion.  Many of the French works of art  now displayed at the exposition are  the product of the heroes of France.  Some of the artists whose work was  selected for hanging here are dead,  some are wounded, some are missing,  some are still fighting in the trenches.  All of the younger artists are in  the service of France. Speaking of this  M. Lambert, of the French commission  said:  "Each artist of note was allowed to  exhibit only two paintings. Many of  these men are young and when thi war  broke out they left their studios.  Many of them took their keys with  them and we must find means of getting into their studios. We have^si  fine collection. Many of the pictures  are by men who are since dead. Others are wounded or- missing. There  is Caro del Villa, who is somewhere  out in front with the artillery. And  we have two by Scevola who is out in  the trenches somewhere just as if he  were not a genius. Lemordant has  two. here also. He has been badly  wounded. One of the bullets went  through his arm and he may never be  able to paint again. ' He was a very  brilliant fellow. A great shell burst  ;near him and.buried part of his company in the hole. He and one companion dug themselves out'and it was  then that he got the bullets in him."  Of the warring nations of Europe,  Austria and Germany are represented  at the exposition as well as England  and France, although by. individual  and not by the government. The "Jason" brought forty-four cases of paintings anil exhibits from these countries,  loaded aboard the collier at Genoa.  The art exhibits of the Republic of  Portugal has been officially, opened in  the Palace of Fine Arts. The exhibit  is housed in the three rooms, in the  north wing of-the Palace. Its'neighbors are the art of Sweden, China/Argentina and Holland. '-The exhibit:contains modern work of great interest  and value. The painters in this section have caught the sunny atmosphere  of southern Europe. The landscapes  are typical; the sculptures and engravings, water colors and drawings  arc of equal interest.  One of the most prominent exhibitors is Columbano, winner of the Grand  Prix at St. Louis in 190'4, gold medal  in Paris in 1900 and the medal of the  first-class at Barcelona, whose portrait  entitled "The White Glove" has attracted wide attention.  There are one hundred and thirty  oil paintings in the section including  ten examples of modern Portugese  sculpture. The engravings submitted j  by the Republic of Portugal are on  display in the Palace of Liberal Arts.  There is, however, in the Fine Arts exhibit an exquisite example of wood-  carving. This is by Barreires. The  pavilion of Portugal contains the sculpture, "The Digger," by. Costa Mota  which is also to be considered a part  of the fine arts exhibit of the Republic.  The paintings in the Fine Arts section are characteristic of the tendencies in present day Portugese art.  "A View of Minho," by Frederico Pere-  ira Aires, is a typical Portugese landscape. Columbano Bordalo Pinher-  rio's paintings comprise a shrine  which attracts its own class of worshippers. Jose de Prito's, "The Wave,,  and "Tired of Waiting," are of another  school. Jose Campus submits "Idyl,"  "The Vintage,," is an admirable study  by Ernesto Ferreriora Condeixa."  As a study of Portugese peasant life,  Jose Malhoa's paintings are pronounced as having few equals. Among those  in the new exhibit are "Returning  from tlie Festival," "The Native Song,"  "The Drunkards," "Teasing," "The  Nightingale's Veranda."  David de Malo contributes "An Old  Woman," Jose Nuncs Riberiro is present in the shape of many canvases,  including "At the Looking Glass."  The Portugese commissioner in matters of fine arts Satisa Lopes, offers a  dozen paintings also, including the  very fine "Pilgrimage" and a study entitled "Effect of Light." Jose Veloso  Salgado's fine canvases include "Gathering Sea Moss," "Ox-Driver," "Sea  Flowers,"  "Charm."  There are several marbles by Thomas Costa including "Hebe," "Venus"  and "David."  In order to assist visitors the management of the exposition is distributing an official exposition hotel guide.  In this guide are listed the names of  hotels, rooming houses and apartment  houses that have agreed to maintain  fair prices during the period of'the  exposition, ��������� These hotels are listed  with the official exposition^Hotel Bureau under an agreement not, to increase rates. All prospective visitors  to San Francisco who desire the'services of the bureau may receive the  same free of charge by addressing  the Official Exposition Hotel Bureau,  Flannery Building, San Francisco.  Reservations may be made through the  bureau.  if*  hedley meat  market  :*%  SHI  All kinds of fresh and  cured meats always on  hand.- Fresh Fish on  sale   eA-ery   Thursday.  R. J. EDMOND, Prop.
