The Victoria Day sports held
at  tho  Center  this  year were
favored by bettor woathor than
usual,   which   added    considerably to the pleasure of the large
crowd that, gathere.d   for   the
day.    Owing   to  the  delay   of
the Oroville team's   arrival, tlie
baseball  game,  which  "was xto
have taken place  in  the morn-

the  f oi in  of a double header,
with seven  innings   played in

played and defeated -Oroville 5
to 2,  and afterwards  put the

of 6 to 2.    In this game Princeton played  their  new   pitcher,
Russell, who was too much for
tlie Keremeos batters, who had
very  little  practice  before, the
game.    This   game,  while   not
even in the   score, was   a   good
one fro or the spectators   point
of view, and showed   that with
some practice, which   the locals
badly needed, some  interesting
games may be expected through
the'season. /"During   the gamos

Mainly on the ground that
their piosouce tends to hamper
efficiency in Canadian forces in
England and France, the agents-
general in London of the provinces of Canada ha**, o passed a
resolution calling upon the provincial governments to t xke
prompt steps to discourage officers and soluiers' wives from
going to England until the end
of the war. There are said to
be more than three thousand
wives of officers and mon of the
Canadian forces now in the
United 'Kingdom, and it is understood this number is to be
increased during the next, two
or three months at the rate of
a thousand a week. " It- is far
better,"- said one agents-general,
"for" the wives to remain in
Canada- with friends than to
come here on an oil chance of
seeing their husbands and then
spending several months among
strangers."���Ex.

of the nice people we have left

W.e get a Hedley Gazette here

am interested in all the Hedley
items which appear in the

persons are familiar to me and
of course I know the residents

note from Private A. P. Martin,

Army Postoffice, London, Eng.:
Dear Ladies: Many thanks
for tlie beautiful socks which I
received through Sergt. Jack;
just the articles we need now,
for as the weather improves we
are out a great deal, and the
continual marching plays havoc
with socks. We are having
much better weather now,
though we get a little rain once
in a while. It is rainiugto beat
the band today.
The country around here is
certainly very pretty, I understand it is considered one of the
beauty spots of England.
All the Hedley boys are going
along nicely, though we are now

Aside from a  slight increase in some of the imported toilet soaps, clue largely to the increased cost of transportation, soap is?  just about where it was before the war.  'All of the war materials used in  soap making are tremendously high,  but soap makers have been making  sufficient ptofit from the sale of "glycerine to offset any losses on soap.  Glycerin he'Iore the war was a byproduct of soap. Now it may truthfully be said that soap is a by-product,  of glycerine .  Glycerine, has been made in such  large quantities for conversion into  nitro-glycerine to fill war orders and  for other technical purposes that the  soap makers have been producing  more soap lye than is needed even in  a civilized, soap-using nation. Hence  soap is as cheap as ever.���������From  Weekly Drug Market.

The argument m Rom.iv is  full ancl clear���������that salvation'is wholly  apart fronl any works of 01113 and'Ihat  Abraham was a righteous man before  God, apart from circumcision, and  the teaching is the same in all the  epistles.- -Yet the false'teachers continue to this day.  W(j might think that lhe ("Rtrmony  of Paul and Barnabas as to what they  had seen the Lord do in the way of  saving uncircumcised gentiles would  silence the distuibers-at Antioeh, but  the. devil Ms very persistent and can  make a lot of trouble, and the Antioeh  believers decided to refer the matter-  to the apostles^md elders at Jerusalem  by sending Paul and Barnabas as their  committee. See how along the way as  they journeyed they caused great joy  unto lhe brethren as they declared all  things that God had done with them,  fvcr.ios '3, 4), and thus fins seemingly  unnecessary lourney was made "to  glorify God.

You will find it on  anything, from stockings up to veils. It is  always an attractive trimming note, and since  the bead embroidery has been in vogue it is  utilized in more effective ways than ever.  All sorts and kinds of beads are used.  _____ Tiny white porcelain beads are used on  the odd net-and-linen frock pictured. It is  medieval in line, but very modern as to treatment. Yellow linen finishes the skirt where  the beaded net leaves off.' The same porcelain beads form the balled .cord and tassels  and the buttons which hold the odd linen  collar about the decollete neck. In this frock  it is curious to note how the beaded bands  act almost as a "beading," or rather entre-  deux, for the many seams on the bodice.  Long crystal beads arranged in lattice  effect are the sole trimming for the gown of  blue Georgette crepe and taffeta. The skirt  bottom is taffeta, also the cuffs, small collar  at the back and the deep girdle. The arrangement of the beads gives a long line to  the frock, even though it is broken by the  girdle. This is a good point to remember  about bead trimming, that it may be applied  to make or alter the lines of a gown.  Indian beadwork, very cleverly done In the  characteristic Irregular white porcelain beads  of moccasin and wampum fame, again gives  longer lines to a frock of dark green Georgette crepe. Beaded buttons fasten the green  velvet ribbon girdle at one side and also the  cuffs. More of the beadwork is repeated on  the deep sailor collar which adorns the back  of the frock.  A blouse which relies almost entirely on  its bead trimming is developed from gray  Georgette crepe, the beads being coral; Picot-  ing  and  hemstitching  in  coral   finish  the  edges  and  seams  of the  blouse,  which is  otherwise quite plain except for the elaborately beaded plastron at the front.    The  crossed silver ribbon held by a beaded rose  with green celluloid leaves breaks, by means  of its surplice lines, the rather broad expanse  which the blouse would otherwise have. The  beads in this case are so small and so closely  applied to the scroll pattern that they resemble couching.  ��������� ��������� i    .!..:'        ���������  '      -      "      J     J   'J       >  fbrce/&/n 0esc?s  a       a        a  85s*  ���������f&.rw  ��������� '*"���������������������������*���������,��������� . -r**~  >r '.Ufa*"- S.-V-  it -y.  .'���������>-!-    ^-  J*-/  ' j I w i"-> *��������� '  ""to  ,~ JHE   / GAZETTE,/..HEDLEY,;  , B. -, C.  Failure Caused    f.

Such an announce-  L -ment had more or lessj been expect-  \\ ed for a long time, ever since the  taaval secretary got the worst of the  tussle last August over the concession which Dr. von Bethmann-Holl-  weg's party agreed to ��������� make to Am-  l? erican representations on the subs' marine war. That was undoubtedly  a rude shock to the grand admiral's  position and power. It seems he  ijt lias never got over it.  I. The 'change" made by the ap-  Ijjiointment of ' Admiral von Capelle  'to succeed'his old chief is therefore  J more apparent than real." The new  K secretary is known to be a disciple  Iof Admiral von Tirprtz. **��������� He has had  {several years' experience in the  ] Marine Amt- as controller and has  {certainly ~ imbibed the doctrines of  {the grand admiral, who promoted  [him to the status of under secretary  for the navy about three years ago  JHe is the man best fitted, therefore,  (to continue the sea war with the en-_  jergy promised in ���������tke German semi-1  {official communique... *"'-_. - . ;  In one sense the work of Admiral,  von Tirpitz, which Jias run into its"  _ twentieth year, was finished , some  [months ago.v He built the German  j nee't, 'i.but it has not been his to de-  I'-cide"finally how it should be used'in  j_tlie^*waf_ Some persons ihave're-  ���������garded him asrthe strategist of the  |"<5erman navy.

The principle underly-  [;-ing German naval administration for  \ .the-last twenty years .has been that  |\the- .fleet 6hould'deliver a big' blow  ; -.at the^ earliest possible moment and  !lk���������ndeavor"tb catch the enemy off his  .guard.'

It is a strange thing" if the submarine's employment as a "commerce  destroyer, for which -Admiral von  Tirpitz was no doubt primarily responsible, has led to his retirement  ���������owing to political differences with  his cabinet' colleagues.

Suez Canal Well Guarded  Traveller-Tells of Dally Work of Allied  ;. -;-     . Mino Sweepers     '     s '*  The Soerabajosclio Handelsblod  prints an interesting article of a journey through the Suez Canal "made on  the steamship Tabanan by a pasesngeJ  from Holland.    "When* we "arrived   at   Port Said,"  in naval I writes this 'traveller, "the decks oi  the Tabanan were covered with sandbags in order to prepare against any  possible attack by the Turks. The  ship's lights at the stern were removed and the passengers were ordered  below. We were told that there was a  strong Turkish force on the east side  of the canal, and a few days previous  they had fired on a French mail boat.  "At three o'clock in the afternoon  we "entered me canal. To the right  we saw the French aeroplane station, with the wreckage of a hydroplane lying nearby, and to the left was  a large" encampment. Behind that as  far as the eye could see the land  was under water.  "Guided by a hydroplane overhead  our ship slowly made her way. In  the meantime darkness had set In,  but, nevertheless, on both sides of  the canal we could see the camps of  the Indian troops. "We passed two  large transports carrying hundreds  of horses. * .  "The ship anchored when we had  made the aourney naif way through  ther*canal, asinb vessel is, permitted  to, traverse the southern' part of the  canal at night.' ** This is due to the  fact that "under cover of night the"  Turks lay mines. Therefore, every  morning mine sweepers are at work.  It _is also forbidden to throw anything  overboard;.. Recently a patrol boat  sighted a box floating in the water,  and tins'/ information was telegraphed  to ^the various stations along the  shores'of the canal. Some iw the report-* spread that it was a box of dynamite, and as, a consequence the cana'  ���������was closed for an entire day.  "In the morning th������ Tab-man continued the journey through the southern half of the canal. We saw numerous, stones marking tbe graves'of  those who had fallen in battle. - Near  Seraplum we saw the resting place oi  Maior von i.^cfl.

Behind were  Austarlian troops 'drilling with camels. At the entrance to" the Red Sea  we were met by the French warships  Requin' and Montcalm. From all .we  could see the British, by means of warships and aeroplanes, as well as patrol  boats, had,the canal well protected  against any possible attack ' by the  Turks."

Tou can never tell who the next.private may be, professional, nobleman,  or laborer:  An officer superintending the receipt v of a large and varied stock of  stores felt the need of a clerk, and  told tlie sergeant-major to hunt one  up from among the men.  The sergeant-major could not find  a man who "pleaded guilty" to that  occupation, but he eventually singled  -out a sober-looking private and took  him before the officer.  "Are' you a clerk?" demanded the  captain.  "No,  sir," replied the man.  '"Do. you know anything about figures?" asked the captain, sourly.  "1 can do a bit," replied the .man,  modestly.  "A bit!" snarled the officer, "is.this  the best man you can find?" said he  to  the sergeant-major.  "Yes, sir,'' said the worthy.  "Well," growled, the . captain, "I  suppose I'll have to put up with him.

'  It is not reported that Sin ��������� itself  was seriously , damaged; but a humorist, describing the consternation  that fell"-upon the inhabitants of the  wilderness, says- "It was- "evident  that our shells put the fear of-Vthe  devil- into their souls."  From a military viewpoint the  shelling of .the wilderness was effective.  It was planned that four machines  should proceed from one point" and  two from another; the latter being  timed to follow the flight 'of the  former, and to complete the destruction begun by the four. The whole  scheme was carried^ out as "arranged,  and our enemies found the work  which" it had taken them months to  prepare destroyed in half an hour.  The airmen dropped forty bombs  on a reservoir and connected buildings and on the trenches with great  effect. According to the description  of one observer, "the camp presented  the appearance of a volcano in eruption."  When the work appeared to be fin-  rshed one of the British pilots noticed  some aviators firing on his fellow  aviators. He swooped down upon  them from behind, and, greatly daring, descended to within 200 feet;  and then opened on the foes v"ath  machine-gun fire,- scattering them  across the desert. Enemy officers  who had been in the marquee were  sent helter-skelter.  The famous ��������� India elm tree at  Maumee, ,0., ravaged by .time and  the elements, is to be saved.

It is not sufficiently appreciated that  the particular foundational section of  the Angus breed that existed in traditional fame in Buchan was regarded, by those who were familiar at the  time with all the possibilities of the  various types in Britain, as a candidate fit to compete with or rival the  Ayrshire, the Jersey and the 'Guernsey. The reason why the breed was  not developed along the milky way  most definitely was because, primar-  ity, it is to be supposed of the lack of  a-great local market - for dairy - products, the distance from other great  centres of demand, and the non-existence of appropriate transport means  thereto.���������R.

"Ah, well," she retorted, "if he keeps goal as well as his  pay ye'll never got bate." Then they  crept silently home.  zond, the Petrograd Gazette hazards  the opinion'that "Turkey's hour has  struck, and it is not impossible that  m the near future she will entirely  disappear from the map." It is 463  years since Constantinople fell before  the assault of Mohammed the Conqueror, and it is a curious fact that  its fall was the first striking demonstration which had been given the  world of the power of heavy artillery.  With that demonstration, other things  came to an end besides the Eastern  Lmpire. The year 1453 marks the  close of the Middle' Ages, because  Moharnmed's heavy artillery opened a  new area in warfare by making the  eqvipment **nd nieta > 1,1 of the med-  l-val soldier worthless. And now the  Turk, whose European conquests were  primarily due to his big guns, is likely to be sent back to Asia to tho accompaniment of the Czar's heavy artillery that has already reached Er-  zerum and Trebizond and will shortly  be thundering at the gates oi Constantinople.  That Turkey will sue in vain for a  sepaiate peace is a foregone conclusion. All Russian opinion, official and-  unofficial, is at one on that point.  Shortly after Germany forced Turkey  into the war, there was a meeting of  the Russian Douma, on Feb. 10, 1915,  at which, in the phrase of the JSTovoe  Vremya, "the world listened to ,the  'mighty voice of Euisia." Interpreting  the utterances of the Russian statesmen, then and afterward, the newspaper said that in the special circumstances of this universal war, mercy  can be _shown to ' Turkey this time  only on terms which will be very diffi-  enlt for her. She~may. retain her autonomy, but only in'those-parts of Asia  Minor where* the Turkish race is in  an undoubted ethnographical majority. All 'conquered- territories of the  Turks must be taken from them', be-  ginning with their European possessions and Constantinople. All the  Christians, beguming with the Armenians in the east, the Orthodox  Arabs in the south, and the Greeks  in the east, must be definitely freed,  and so must be Palestine with its  great sacred, association'. ,   .  * When-the'hour of division comes,  Russian opinion will be equally divided'against giving up to_"J any; .other  power the control of * Constantinople  and.the Dardanelles. On'this depends  the 'outlet' of - Russian trade "with/ the  whole world, since the Dardanelles is  a canal communication not only with  the Black" Sea, but with all the_ great  Russian rivers and railwayVapproaching it. - The Bosphoious and the., Dardanelles will open the .way- to .'the  Dnieper, the Don,, the- Volga, ,,the  Kama, and "from them .to enormous  agricultural districts in the* Black-  Earth regions. At the presents moment it is- impossible- to.carry/rner-  chandise' from .Tashkent' "or Semipal-  atinsk to Libau* or"Archangel". AsTthe  Novo Vremya put the case:-"The population of all .Russia nearly approaches 200,000,000, and it 'cannot be cramp-*  ed in its > economic life without causing a* cataclysmaT'ahd universal catastrophe."- .From the very beginning  of the war with-Turkey all Russia was  stirred, to-its depths)--"because of the  conviction that this-time-Constantinople would be won. _It was certainly'not in order to conquer the world  that for two centuries Russia has  striven to control Constantinople .and  the ���������;. Straits, but merely in order to  have a free and unrestricted-, outlet to  the. Mediterranean and to the lands  beyond. '. Europe is no longer obsessed  by the idea that Constantinople is  ,"the key of the world," or even the  key of the'Mediterranean. But it is  unquestionably the key of the Black  Sea.  It has been doubted notably by Bismarck, whether Constantinople in the  hands of Russia woiud be a source of  strength. Much must depend on  whether it is to become a point at  which a vital blow could be administered to-Russia. In'spite of the obvious' temptation, therefore, it may be  doubted whether, after the departure  of the Turk, the former capital of -the  empire of the east will (become the  seat of the government of the Czar.  The Emperor Nicholas I. once said to  the British ambassador that "if once  the Czar were to take up-his abode at  Constantinople, Russia would cease to  Russian." So also the dictum of  Freeman, the historian: "Constantinople cannot'be ruled from St. Petersburg; neither can St. Petersburg be  ruled from Constantinople. The Romanoffs may rule in New Rome; the  Russians cannot. For the Romanoff  on the throne of New Rome would  cease to be Russian."  It is a year since .Sir Edward Grey  made the memorable-declaration that  the British government was in entire  sympathy with Russian" aspirations  concerning Constantinople and. the  Dardanelles, so that it-seems probable  that a complete understanding has already be reached by the allies as to  the future of the present capital of  the Ottoman empire, and the territory  which commands the; Straits.  It is equally probable that an agreement has been reached in regard to  the disposal of the other conquered territories of the Turks. What Germany  stands "to lose in the approaching division of the Ottoman empire her own  expansionists have set forth with  great fullness of detail. Dr. Sprenger,  for example, has synthetized the -German ambitions in Asia Minor by declaring that of all the lands on the  face of the .earth there are none that  offer;*greater advantages for colonization that Syria and Mesopotamia.  There are ho virgin forests to be cleared away, and no natural difficulties  to be surmounted. All that has to be  done is to scratch the ground, sow and  gather the crops. The Levant, according to Dr. Sprenger, was the only territory in the world that had not been  monopolized by the Great Powers/although it offered the best field for  colonization. Hence his prediction  that"*"if Germany does not miss her  opportunity to seize a before the Cossacks stretch out tluiir hand in that  direction, she will have the best share  in the division of the world." It belongs to the irony of fate that the dis-  l meniberment of Turkey, in which Ger-  Merchantable Quality  Of Crops for 1915  Estimated Stocks In Farmers' Hands  on March 31, 1916  The census and statistics office has  issued in the form of a press bulletin  a siimmary of the results of inquiries  into (a) the merchantable quality of  the field crops of 1915 (b) the stocks of  grain and other agricultural produce  of 1915 remaining in farmers* hands  on March 31, and (c) the stocks of  wheat in Canada on the same date.  The returns received from crop reporting correspondents show <that of  the total estimated wheat crop in 1915  oi 376,303,600 bushels over 95 per cent.  or 358,218,000 bushels, proved to be of  merchantable quality. This proportion  compares well with the previous years,  being superior to last year, by about  2 per cent.'and'somewhat above" the  average of the past seven years. The  proportions ol other 'crops of 1915,  which proved to be of merchantable  quality-are as follows: Oats 92 per  cent (480,208,000 bushels out of 520,-  103,000 bushels); barley 88 peT cent  (47,082,000 bushels out _ of 53,331,300  bushels); rye,-88.5 per cent (2,118,-  500 bushels out of 2,394,000 bushels);  buckwheat, 3 per cent (6,512,000 bushels out of 7,865,900 bushels); corn for  husking, 77:5 per cent' (11,142,000  bushels out of 14,368,000 ..bushels);  flaxseed, 95.5 per cent. (10,144,000  bushels out..of 10,628,000 bushels); -potatoes, 73 per cent (45,630,000 bushels  out of 62,604,000 bushels); turnips,  etc., 86 per cent (55,266,000 bushels  out of 64,281,000 bushels), and hay and  clover 86 per cent )9,400,000 tons out  of 10,953,000 tons).  Out of the total estimated yield of  wheat in 1915, 23 per cent, or 86,854,-  000 bushels remained in farmers'  hands at the end of March. This proportion compares with 12% per cent  last year, 16% per cent in 1914, -22 per  cent in 1913 and 27 per cent in 1912;  so that this year the proportion in  hand is larger than in any year since  1912," which related to the crop of  -1911. Last year the proportion remaining over was the (Smallest on record since these inquiries..were -in-,  stituted in 1909. Not only, however,-  is the proportion this year a high one;  but owing to last year's excellent  yields, the quantity'on.hand at "March  31 is larger than in any previous year,  1912, (the crop of 1911) coming nearest with 62,188,000 bushels.  Of the remaining field crops the proportions and quantities estimated to be  in farmers' hands at March 31 are as  follows: Oats 45"per cent or 235,530,-  000 bushels; barley, 34 per cent, or  18,514,500 bushels; rye, 30 per cent,  or 732,700 bushels; buckwheat, 22 per  cent.,- or 1,747,000 bushels; corn for  husking, 24 per cent, or 3,453,000 bushels; flax, 25 per cent, or 2,700,300 bushels; potatoes, 20 per cent, or 12,960,-  000 bushels; turnips, etc., 15% per  cent, or 9,952,000 bushels; hay, and  clover, 23 per cent, or 2,524,000 tons.  For oats, barley and rye the quantities  on hand at the end "of March are larger than in any previous year on record.  The census and statistics office also  report the completion of an inquiry, Into the total stocks of wheat and wheat  flour in Canada at March 31, the results of which are available for comparison with the special inquiry- of  February 8, 1915. This year the total  quantity of wheat, and wheat flour expressed-in terms of wheat, estimated  as* in stock in Canaaa on March 31, is  subject to slight revision, about 196  million bushels, 'as compared with  about 80 million bushels on February  8, 1915. The total for 1915 includes  in rouad figures 86% million bushels in  the elevators, flour mills and in winter  storage in vessels; 87 million bushels  in farmers' hands and 22% million  bushels in course of transit by rail  Homesteads for Volunteers  Way Open For Every Man Serving in  Canadian  Forces to Secure a  Homestead  Militia orders from Ottawa announce that the way~is now open for  every man serving in the Canadian  forces to secure for himself a homestead, the time spent on active service to count as residence duty on the  land. . Homesteads thus secured will  be protected against cancellation and  in the event of a man receiving  wounds, which result in disability so  that he cannot complete his homestead duties on his return to civilian  life he will receive his patent without  further effort.  The volunteer in possession of a  homestead at the time of his enlistment receives similar treatment, and  his entry is protected from cancellation during service.  The Irish-Canadian Rangers  When you speak of the Irish-Canadian Rangers do : not call them "The  199th." That is their number, but  they have been awarded the special  distinction that, instead of being correctly designated by it, they may be  called by a name that is descriptive  of the composition of the battalion.  The officers of the regiment are naturally very proud of this, as the Grenadier Guards is he only other regiment so distinguished in this province. From Ulster and from Con-  naught Protestant and Roman Catholic are falling.into line for the great  recruiting campaign just begun, and  the Irish-Canadians bid fair to stand  in the front rank ot the crack battalions of Canada. Well officered and  manned with sturdy and, intelligent  representatives of the stock from  which hey have sprung, it may safely  be predicted that they will be second  to none.���������Montreal Herald,  The Attitude of Scouting  r   To Cadet Training  GSoomy    Forebodings   Are Expressed  . That lf^ Cadet Training  Becomes  General,   Scouting   Will   90  Under  The military value of Cadet training  in a country where you already have  a standing army is not sufficient to  guarantee a big outlay of taxpayers'  money, and without funds it cannot be  applied to much effect among the  poor classes���������though an excellent occupation for well-to-date boys.  From the educational point of view  its value is not considered by the authorities to be sufficiently great to justify its being introduced into the already overcrowded time table of the  school.  So there are obstacles' to be overcome before it can be generally introduced- Then its ultimate aim is so  entirely different and so partial as  compared with that of scouting that  I do not see that the two movements  can seriously interfere with or disturb  each other. Quite the contrary. They  can be mutually helpful in doing good  for the country. A Scout commissioner  m writing to me has touched on some  further points of the case. He admits  that if and when education committees grant the time.-funds, and accommodation to Cadets, Scout troops will  be materially handicapped, but at the  same time his expenence shows that  "where real scouting is practised it  Is so much more permanently attractive and congenial to boys than Cadet  work that there is no fear of our losing boys. One of my Scouts summarized last week the situation in regard  to Cadets who are very active in this  district "They are taking our��������� slackers���������good luck to 'em. It is the inefficient troops that will suffer,, and  even if the movement had a temporary set-back in numbers, it will, I believe, -be a healthy competition *?and  will tend to increase our real efficiency. I may say that in this district  I anticipate as a matter of fact a substantial increase in our membership  this year. We have established friendly relations with the Cadets here, and  are inviting their responsible officer  to join our local association. Our  Scouts' Defence Crops boys have also  undertaken to instruct the Cadets m  signalling���������at the request of their officer."  That is the right attitude for Scouts  to take.  -A Scout recently wrote to ask me if  he ought to join the Cadets, which his  schoolmaster was raising in the  scliool.  I replied that he would do well to be  a Cadet provided he did not leave' the  Scouts-to do it In Australia, New  Zealand and Canada it is quite; possible for a boy to be a Cadet and a  Scout  Cadet "training Is very much ^ike  that of the Scouts' Defence Corps; it  teaches , a fellow to" drill ana manoeuvre so that if ho goes'into the army  later on he will know something about  the. work "and will not'come to do it  entirely as a'raw recruit.  But it does not teach him to turn his  hand to every kind of useful job, to  his wits and to do the right thing at  the right moment as Scouting does. It  does not make him so useful all round  that governments make use of his services as they do with Scouts for coast  watching, for police duties, for orderly work at the war office, admiralty,  hospitals, recruiting offices, etc.  Out here where I am at the front,  officers are always saying to me: "I  wish I could get more Old Scouts into  my company���������they are worth ten of  those who have not been trained to do  anything, or who have been drilled  only as Cadets���������for very often Cadets  have been drilled by men who have  not been good at it, and all they have  learnt has to be unlearnt again before  they make good soldiers. "We want  fellows who can be trusted to do their  duty however unpleasant it may be, to  turn their hand to any job,-and keep  smiling all the time���������as the Scouts do.  -Cotton Industry in Japan  The export of cotton piece goods  from Japan has greatly increased  since the war, according to the British consul at Osaka. The mills are  reported to have made a big profit in  the sale of shirtings and drills. From  May, 1915, tlie diminution in stocks in  Shanghai created a demand for Japanese goods, which increased steadily  during the year., The mills, however,  adopting the view that prices would  go higher, showed no anxiety to push  sales. This attitude appears to have  been justified by results. It is reported that at the beginning "of 1916  the mills were in the comfortable position of having sold their output for  six months ahead, and there is a general impression that the position thus  gained in the cotton piece goods markets of China and India is one which  will be held.

"���������."���������"g  - Conditions  in  Germany  A Swiss traveller returned from a  trip through Germany, reports that  he saw women waiting in a queue in  front of a municipal store in Berlin  for more than two hours for their  weekly quarter of a pound of butter.  In the streets everywhere he saw men  lacking an arm or a leg, or otherwise  crippled. Many wore the black and  white ribbon of the Iron Cross, but  one could see that in tlie eyes of the  public they were no longer heroes, but  cripples. He was struck by the dull,  sad faces of the" soldiery, whether returning from or proceeding to the  front. At every railway station he  seemed to see the same faces���������dull,  listless, resigned, passive; no traces  anywhere of the brave confidence of  earlier days.  Want Six  Hundred  Motor  Boat  Men  The British admiralty wants six  hundred Canadian motor boatman for  service with the auxUiary patrol of  the Royal Wavy. Commander Armstrong, who is in charge of the party  of representatives, sent by the admiralty to Canada to select the men,  stated .that they would visit every  part of the Dominion and see the volunteers in their o.wn districts.  The men who are wanted are those  who will be suitable as officers in  command of tho patrol boats, also sec-  I ond in command, and marine engin-  ���������.eera and utecbAiuca.  "Keep on Killing"  That incorrigible Britisher and  popular Roman Catholic preacher,  Father Vaughan, at a concert in the  Mansion House, .London, .bng __ last  week, said that when he was last  on that platform he preached the  doctrine of "keep on killing Germans." Since then he had received  quite an avalanche of letters protesting against that bloodthirsty  condition of mind. But only that  morning he had seen that General  J off re had said, "That (meaning  killing Germans) has been my cry  all along, and unless we had mown  them down nay divisions would have  been wiped out."  It was an appalling thing that  they had to slaughter their brother  men and he deplored it, but modern  warfare meant killing the enemy,  and, for us, this war meant killing  Germans. If not, we must a'low  ourselves to be scientifically massacred and mangled. What we must  do was to paralyze, shorten and  starve the "mailed fist," who, with  his tyrannous gospel, sought to dom  inate Kurope. Our duty was to .-e-  cast the map of Europe, and bring  up the rising generation in that justice, liberty and civilization which  was taught to us by Christ.

Bay Country
Territory  to   be     Developed    by     New
Road  Will   be Another Source  of
Wealth to tbe  Dominion
The Hudson Bay Railroad, which
has its northern terminus at Port
Melsoti, will shoiten tlie land haul of
grain trom the wheat fields of the
\Vos_t to the Atlantic ocean by over
a thousand miles. And lhe total distance between the pruirio iarms and
Duropcarr ports will not be increased.
This of course. :s the chief object
in buildinjr the road. But it will also
���serve another purpose, that of opening up a new territory For permanent
.-.ettleiriout. Pessimists tell us that
this country is not suitable to permanent occupation .that it is cofcl and
barren, with nothing to entice lhe
pioneer to live within its borders. We
wore told much the same regarding
other parts of the Dominion which are
now looked upon as vciitnble gardens
of fertility. The Peace River district
may be mentioned as an example.
We are told that lhe country opened
up by the new railroad has frost every
month in the year with the possible
exception of July. This may be a
serious handicap to successful farm-
inir operations, yet we must remember
that in the three prairie provinces
last year, there was not one month
in which frost did not occur. Yet in-
this climate (iOO.UT^OOO bushels of
wheat were grown during the season.
Also the Yukon district is said to
produce vegetables as fine as any
seen in other parts of tho Dominion,
and it lies well up to the Arctic circle.
There seems to be no reason to
doubt that a large local trade will be
established along the Hudson Bay
road. The lorests contain valuable
limbers, which in addition to furnishing material for export, will prove a
boon to tho pulp ancl allied industries
of'Canada. Again ,ifc is a country of
great mineral wealth, which, when
once opened up, "ill lead lo further
arid iurther development in mining
operations. The fis-li, too, with which
the rivers and lakes teem, will be another source of wealth..
When wo read the reports furnished
by the topographical survey "for 1016,
and also 1 lie repoits of those who
either lor pleasure or for business,
have visited this now little known
territory, we fail to see how' anyone
should 'or could bo doubtful regarding the advisability of opening *'p tho
country.

An Ancient City
Not-
Trebizond   was   one   of  the   Most
able  Cities  of the  East  in
the   Middle* Ages
Trebizond, the old capital of Cap-
I odociu, is mentioned by Milton in
one of his gorgeous catalogues of
places in the first book of "Paradise
Lost," whero lie refers tc the knights
who once jousted there. The city, indeed was "one of the great schools of
mediaeval chivalry, "and it is a German historian, Professor Fallmcraycr,
who tells us that it "became in popular romance and in the imaginations
of the Italians and Provencals, one
of the most famous empires of the
l-.'ast, and the rallying point of the
youth and flower oE Asia." Readers
of '"lvanhoe"' may remember that the
templars boasts to llebecca that he
had won his horse. Zamor, in single
fight from the Soldim of Trebizond.
Apait from its classical association
with Xenophon and tho retreat of the
ten thousand, Trebizond was one of
the most notable cities of the '""ast
in the middle ages. The Hellenic
Ti apezus, or "Tableland''' so named
from tho sloping table of ground on
which it stands, at tho time of tho
fourth crusade fell into the hands cf
Alcxus' Commenus. a scion of the
Imperial Byzantine family, who founded .there an empire that lasted for
two and a half centuries, and included
the greater part of the southern coast
of the Black Sea. The Imperial family, were renowned for their beauty,
and Princesses of Trebizond were
sought in marriage by Byzantine Emperors, western nobles and Mohammedan Princes.��� The London Chronicle.
Traffic on all Kussia's inland waterways is to be centrally controlled,
along lines already adopted for railroad communications, by a central

Instructing ancl Interesting Addresses
to be Given by Practical Men
With a splendid list of speakers to
address the 10th Annual Convention
o[ the Western Canada Irrigation Association at Kamloops on July 20th.
���20th and '27th next, "Tho Place in the-
Sun*' has every reason to feel confident that, the * forthcoming mectim-
will be one of real vniuc and interest
to both fruit growers and farmers.
Farmers and fruit growers are usually  very busy men  and do not care
to  take lime from  the midst of their
work,   particularly   during   the     crop
growing season,  lo absent themselves
from   their homes unless in doing so
they   are getting information and  advice that makeHieir visits to farmers'
conventions of intrinsic value to them.
During the past few years all farmers'
conventions  have  realized  the  neces-
sily  of conducting their' meetings on
a strict business basis and the Western Canada Irrigation Association has
not   boon  behind  hand in  this  work,
livery   possible   phase   of   agriculture,
in whioh the farmers in British Columbia and the prairies are interested, has
a-place  on   the    programme    and   if
throuah any ovcisight or lack of lime,
a subject of special interest to a particular   farm"r   has   been   overlooked,
the mopling is open to discussion on
that  subject.    As  far  as  possible the
actual   liirmers,   irrigators     and   fruit
growers themselves are to make those
addresses  which  will be much    more
practical   than    theoretical   ancl   it  is
hoped   and   believed   through   the  increased attendance of delegates at the
Annua] lirigation Convention that the
members arc realizing tho value of ho
Association to them and getting direct
benefits from and through it. A glance
at the  following programme  will   advise all those interested of the subject.-*
to be covered and Mr. C. E. Lawrence,
the genial Secretary of the Local Board
of Control at Kamloops, will be glad
to answer all enquiries regarding this j
meeting promptly and fully.

that betorp the war Denmark supplied'three tilths of Hie butter mi-.

Denmark is an importei of butter,
or its equivalent, as well as an exporter. Dani.-h I armors import iri-
feiior Swedish butter, inferior iii^ reputation at least, for u.sc at home."and
sell their higher-priced pioduct in the
English market. They also import
margarine as a substitute for butter
in  home consumption.

hi a letter received in Toronto, (hat

any way apprize the Bruxellois of the
true conditions that obtained in the

months without news of her husband,

that intelligence for which she yearned. But the Germans srained possession oi one.ol the letters with the result that the woman was placed under

it is reported, have deflected bullets

Letter from Sergt. Jack.  Thefollowing letter was received by the Gazette from  Sergeant A. W. Jack,. "C" Co.,  51th Battalion, C. E. F.. Bram-  shott camp, Hants:  Editor   Gazette:  Dear Sir: I have just received  two large packages containing  socks and mufflers from the  Hedley ladios' sewing circle for  distribution among the Hedley  boys here, and I wish through  the medium of the Gazette to  send them our very warmest  thanks for their thoughtfulness  and consideration. It makes  one feel good to think that our  old friends in the west are  planning and working for our  comfort.  The socks are especially welcome, for tbe army issue of  "coverings for the understandings" can only be called socks  by a/i extreme stretch of the  imagination! There's nothing  to beat hand knitted socks for  our work and, thanks to the  kindness of the Hedley ladies,  wc are now well fixed for some  time to come.  I saw by a recent copy of the  Gazette that tbe news had  reached you of the death of  Vans and Mills. They are the  first of. our Hedley boys to "go  west," and we miss them both  very much.  We have erected a very nice  marble tombstone on Vans'  grave at Borden military cemetery. The stone is of marble  and above the inspriction we  had a carved design of the  Maple Leaf executed with tbe  word "Canada," and tbe battalion number "54"���������something on  the plan of our regimental  badge, which some of you have  no doubt seen.  Poor Blair Mills' grave, I  am  F������v<j Sons Fighting  Among tbe notably contribu-  butions to the empire's cause is  that, of a Spriughil!, Nova  Scotia, "woman, Mrs. William  Letcher, widow of Brigadier  Letcher. Her bit is five of her  sons, Captain W. T. Letcher,  '10th Battalion: Drum' Major J.  J. Letcher, S2nd Battalion, in  Calgary; Corporal Harry Letcher, Composite Battalion draft,,  now in Sandling, England, and  Private Granville, also with tbe  4.0th. Another of her boys lias  enlisted, Charles B. Letcher,  who joined the 03rd Halifax  rifles, and i.s now on McNab's  Island. At 10 he is quite a  young soldier, possessed of that  hereditary trait, tlie desire r.o  defend the right and protect the  weak, those boy, all of whom  are under 30 years of age, were  not reluctant to respond to tbe.  call for men, and manly men.  Mrs. Letcher, who is a sister  of W. B. Burrows, of the Nickel  Plate mine, i.s justly proud of  her sous, for, on such sacrifices  as she has offered, does the success of our fight depend.  course to pur-Hi-.-���������quit. Unless  .something is done it will not be  long before .some of tlie politician-- of Canada will be ped-  dlin������ tho virnic of their women.  Th. y are bi-comiug so utterly  disreputable that no crime or  outrage will .stop Lbom in their  cha->i* of the dollar. People no  longer believe in either their  sincerity or their honor. That  there was personations in all  I lie by-elections of last winter  everyone believes, but that one  party was more guilty than tho  other no one imagines. That  votes have been bought in every  cons-ituency in British Columbia in recent years,every one  knows, ft is a fact well known  that dummy candidates have  been hired to run for the purpose of killing tbe labor vote  and electing tlie candidalcs of  the .coast land ring. Every  possible manipulation practiced  by Tammany has been used in  Canada. Men who have taken  an independent, stand, especially  newspaper publishers, have been  slandered by inucudo by the  heelers of the party in power at  the time. There is nothing so  low or degraded that the Canadian politicians will not. resort  to in order to gain their ends  and get their bands in the  public treasury.  More Politicians  With the publication of this  issue the Phoenix Pioneer goes  to join other mining camp  journals who are not dead but  "only sleeping.  However foolish thi.*"*-* move  might be considered by a number of our loyal supporters is  immaterial to us: but-as self  preservation is the first .law of  nature, we take this moans of  protecting ourselves from the  machinations of a clique who  for the past five years have  played politics in Phoenix.  Apart from politics, a newspaper represents more to a  community than a thing to be  taken off a high shelf, the dust  blown off it Avhen required by  a few and then returned. That  we have shown more faith in  Phoenix than many in whose  power it lay to sustain us during the last five years goes  without saying.  Delinquents on our books will  please accept this as an intimation to pay up that wo may  hasten the day when we can  hang our coat in another man's  shop. Too long have we fed on  husks.
