Well its  here we are  again, but my  I did enjoy my time spent in England  after 1 got   well   enough to be out  of  pain.    The}* certainly did everything  to give <l Canadian a good   time as far  as I could see.    I had a lovely visit up  to bonny Scotland  with   Bob Hogg's  people. Of course you-know Mr. Hogg  being a parson   we did not have many  big blow   outs but they are   certainly  very fine,  people,"! . met Helen   Hogg  that   used to   be in Keremeos.. .She is  just the same Helen   with   the exception that she is- married and has a fine  bouncing   baby girl.   I was into London but as it was  only for a week end  I did not have a chance to see much of  it but   did see   some   things   at   that  which opened my eyes, 1 saw the rest  of the Keremeos boys' at  Shornclifl'e  and we had a few good times together.  1   think    they  are    "somewhere    in  France"   now, least I had   a line from  Joe Brown last week saying they were  all packed ready to leave any hour.    1  was glad to see our friends Etches and  Hogg looking so hale and hearty when  I got   back,   Joe Mason   also   I think  you'knew Joe.    Fie isexpecting to get  a commission soon.   Bob   Hogg plays  the   big drum in the.  regimental band  and he is sure some drummer.    If you  could   only see   him dressed  in   kilts.  I'm   afraid every minute   to see   the  drumhead go in but so far it has stood  the test.    I hear Bob McCurdy has arrived home   I guess   there   would   be  some time.    It will keep Bob busy for  some   time I guess.    IhopeJiis   other  eye is   quite strong.    I heard Hedley  was sending   another contingent   and  that Robertson was among the bunch.  A Veil I think old Canada is doing fine,  don't   you ?   Since   coming   back we  have had it   very easy so   far it being  very quiet   along our line.    "We  were  out for a few days , rest and had quite  a, time as most every regiment around  has a baseball   team so we   had^soine  real good games also of football. Then  in the evenings,   sometimes we would  have a big bon-fire and have a concert,  I tell you, you would be surprised, the  singers there are here as well as violin  players, step dancers etc,   They had a  real good program always.   One night  a bunch  in the   medical corps  gave a  rninstreal show.   There were fourteen  in the   troupe and   they  were   extra  good-   Together   with   the   sports  it  would   sometimes put me in   mind of  21th of  May or Labor  Day with   the  noticeable  absence  of ladies.    "Well I  guess I had   better close or I will   be  getting in wrong with the censor officer.    Ti usting    this     finds     yourself  Willie and   family in   best of   health,  from as ever,  Sincerely Yours.  Billy  Pte. W, K. Hope (77720).  During the last few   months several  additions have been  made to the Dalv  i-  .Reductions Company's buildings, and  quite a number of new units added lo  tbe equipment.       '  During the year* l'Jlt! and Wbl', tlie  Company installed the Similkameen  River Hydro-EIer-tric power plant of  2000 Hotse-power. This plant, which  was placed in commission during February of the present year, with a 20UO  foot new eompre.-sor. cost approximately $107,000.     '     '  The improvements just completed  are; one'u foot x 2:ifnot tube mill, fitted with Montana Tonopah linings, one  22 foot x. 5 foot Dotr Classifier, two 31  x IS foot and two .SO foot x 10 foot  cyanide tanks, one latest pattarn Oliver Filter "Press, several pumps, agitators, and other equipment.  Both the   north and   south  sides of  the mill have been extended snfTicient-  ly to house the tanks and Oliver Press;  the whole   being  suitably - fitted with  stairways,   elect 1 in light, steam  heat,  etc. The retainingfwalls, as well as all  the foundations,   were constructed  of  Cyclopean      Concrete.   This     would  indicate   that   thoj management   has  . 1  faith in the permanency of the mine.  The large air-compressor engine, at  the auxilliary power station,'has been  changed from a water-power drive to  an electric   drive,   operated   from the  Similkameen River power-plant.    The  motor, operating .this unit, was   built  by  the   Canadian     General    Electric  Russia declaivd w^ir. on Bulgaria Opt.

This has caused.a lull in political activity.  Sir Edward Carson again announces that he resigns-  because he cannot agree with other ministers on near Eastern  question.    '  Little change in Servian situation.  Allies arc marking time till largea French . forces can  be landed at Saloniki.  Germans claim a victory against Servians near Dova-  vac; while Servia claims to have re-captured Semendria.  C. P. R. Steamer Missanabia arrives-in England with"  1174 Canadian troops.    No news from France.  La dies to Ra i se Fund  on Trafalgar Day  Company, and"w'lir* transmit -100 horse  power at 450 revolutions per minute.  The   building     has   been    enlarged  sufficiently   to house   this motor   and  the drive of the 36 inch  belt.    All the  new machinery is operating very satis  factorily.  We understand the addition, of the  mill machinery, mentioned, is for the  purpose of making a greater saving  rather than increasing the output tonnage, although this   may follow later.  Our   Hedley   mill does not   make a  great   public   demonstration,   but   is  busy,   nevertheless,   3d!   days in   the  year, allowing   a surcease of one day,  Labor Day, from labor. It has continued to operate so for the past twelve years, and if the permanency of the  building, the high class of machinery  and equipment that has been installed,  is any criterion; it looks as if the man-  agemant expected the "Old Nickel  Plate" to keep the good work up for  at least another twelve.  JI  Mr. W. J. Manery, of Siiniikameen,  drove up Tuesday for a short business  visit to town. He reports the Horn  Silver mine pulling out some mighty  fine ore which.they are now shipping  and if the present grade continues in  all probabilities the owners will install 11 small smelter.  GEN. GORDON WARNED  BRITAIN IN YEAR 1882  London. Sept. 15 (by mail).  A remarkable instance of prevision relating to the war was  cited here today with an extract  from a letter written by the  famous General Gordon, to a  friend,  in 1SS2.   lie wrote:  "Every Briton   should   think  of   the   future    and   each   one  should insist on the government  passing a measure for compulsory universal military training!  So far as England is concerned,  she need not,  for the next quarter of a   century, be ��������� under any  apprehension -of serious difficulties   arising   with    any   of   her  Fiuopean neighbors,  but in 1910  or thereabouts   there   will  have  arisen a naval power* which may  prove   mightier   than   she, and  should   she (Germany;   gain the  supiemacy, England will become  extinct   both   as a land   and sea  power, and all her dependencies,  including   India,  will   fall   into  Germany's   clutches.    You may  live to see tin's.    I shall  not, but  when that   time comes,' remember my words."  Today we celebrate the 110th anniversary of theJlattleof Ti-afalgiu Bay,  that great naval engagement in which  Admiral Nelson defeated the naval  powers of France and Spain and coined the immortal phrase,  '���������England expects that every man  this day will do his duty."  What more appropriate than that  we today, engaged as we are in the  greatest war in the history of the  world should turn to look back at that  great naval achievement, and do honor to the memory of the men who in  that crisis saved the honor of Great  Britain and paved the way for British  ascendency on the seas. This ascendancy is vital to us today in our struggle with the Teutonic Allies.  In answer to the appeal from Lord  Lansdowne, which appeared in the  last issue of the Gazette, Hedley Ladies Sewing Circle have arranged for  an afternoon tea this afternoon from  3 to 0, at which the-men of the town  are requested to appear and bring a  collection. In. the evening they will  engineer a dance in the Opera House,  gentlemen will pay $1.00 and ladies  will bring refreshments.- These events  will be carried out in the manner in  which only the Hedley ladies do these  files of the   Hedley   Gazette' of  ten  years ago;, how this campaign ended.  We quote as follows;  While   Nelson's    battleships   roved  the high seas,  unconquered, Napoleon  dared not   launch his   hitherto   invincible army in an   invasion of England.  France in that day   had a great navy,  and-when -to it was   added  the 'thou -  great sea power of Spain, it was little  wonder   that   Napoleon's   hopes   ran  high of breaking   down all   resistance  and hurling his army at the one power   which   stood    between    him   and  world conquest.    The   French men-of-  war were divided into three squadrons-  at   Brest,     Rochefort,    and   Toulon..  Napoleon   ordered  them all   to  leave-  port   and   sail   for the   AVest   Indies,  where they were to effect a junction  and united with   their allies the Spaniards return in  overwhelming force to.  the English channel and  cover Napoleon's invading armies; but the British,  ships lay between   the. French division  and maintained   a ceaseless   blockade  Villeneuve, the French admiral inside  the Spanish   harbor, had   to bear  the  insulting   taunts   of  Napoleon,   who  thus forced   him to action  against his  better judgment.    With thirty-three  battleships   the French navy put   to  sea. and Nelson with his twenty-seven  his plans all pro-arranged, struck them  like "a thunderbolt.   Nelson's plan was  for his lee line of 15 ships   under Coll-  ingwood of the Royal Sovereign to fall  on theeneniys rear, while the weather  line   commanded   by  himself  in   his  flagship the   Victory,  was to   feint at  things, which means that they will be  a big success and augment materially j their head and  then fall on   their cen  the Red   Cross fund, which   i.s the object of the whole affair.  In speaking   of Trafalgar   Day   one  thinks  oack   to lbs campaign   of   the  power-mad Napoleon, whose conquest  on land   doubtless influenced   him  in  the belief that   he could  also   hope to  conquer   on   the  liigli   seas.    Joining  forces with Spain,  which at that time  had a   formidable   navy,   France with  her powerful fleet   plannod a  blow at  Great   Britain,   estimating   that   the  "Silver Streak" as thoy called the English Channel,   would not   be of   much  protection  to John   Hull, in his   tight  little island.    But there   was the fleet  OjJ Great Britain to   he considered and  we will see in the following quotation;  (which, by the- way   is taken from the  tei- and rear, which   he determined to  crush befora Villeneuve's leading ships-  could  return   to help them.    At   half  past eleven o'clock   went out Nelson's  famous     signal,     "England    expects  every   man to do   his   duty,"  and   at  noon   the   first shot   boomed   out   as  Collingwood's   ships   opened   the ball  and in about  half an hour   he had cut  the   enemy's  line   of   battle.    .Nelson  watching this showed again that magnanimous spirit which made him idolized   by his   sailors,   by   exclaiming:  "How splendidly that fellow Colling-  wood   brings   his ships into   action.",  and   in a   few minutes  more his own  Victory was  grappling in the  death  struggle  when   he   closed   with   the  French   "Redoubtable"    commanded  Continued on Pnfre Threo Till-: MEDLEY GAZETTE, OCT. 21.1915  and  Similkameen Advertiser.  from   diamond   Group   in tbe   Skagit  Valle-v.

C, Oct. 1-1. lOlo  Kditor, Hedley Gazette,  Hedley, J J. C."  Dear Sir:  Will you kindly allow me a iinal  word in leply to the epistle of a local  clergyman in your issue of Oct. 7.  Christian   Scientists    do   not   preach  against other denominations, nor do  they invade . tlie . press with  condemnation of other people's reli  gious views, and they ask the same  Christian courtesy in return. But  when this is not accorded, it is i-eason-  ahle to insist upon the fact that a  Christian Scientist knows what he believes, or what Christian Science  teaches, vastly hotter than'does his  opponent.  I have no wish to recall our friend  from his retirement. Next to an  apology, to retire from discussion is  probably the most graceful thing he  could do. After reading his latest  eil'usion of cheap ridicule, and baseless  diatribe, om: must heartily agree with  him that it is a waste of ink and paper.  1 would like to touch again upon the  central point raised in the recent correspondence, the point which gathers  all that is of vital interest to humanity, and that is the infinity or allness  of God. and its correlative, the unreality of evil. These arc but two sides  ��������� if the same truth, and since our critic  could not deny one without the other,  he rashly denies them both.  The problem of evil, the truth about  it and how to destroy it, is the problem of mortals' salvation; but our  friend denies there is any problem of  human salvation, and gently (?) chides  me for using the term. It is.true that  Jesus solved this problem for himself,  and for all who will work it out according to his teaching and example;  bin until this is clone, until the individual works out his own spiritual  at-one-ment with God, his salvation  remains an unsolved problem so far as  he is concerned. Else why does our  critic labor from Sunday to Sunday  for the salvation  of his Hock?  The method by which he arrives at  the conclusion that because Christian  Science teaches that evil, in the abso  lute sense, is   unreal, since it is not of  God, it is   therefore no sin  to commit  murder, is a fearful and wonderful'innovation in logic.   Every mathematician'' knows   there   are   no errors   in  mathematics, but that does not mean  that one   can use   any but   the  right  figures and not make a mistake.    Errors occur in one's  ignorance of mathematics, or in his   neglect to use what  he knows  of it, but   these  errors are  not true, and never had any real existence.   Likewise,   there is   no evil  in  the truth about God, nor in the truth  about  man,   His image and  likeness.  One who commits evil thereby departs  (from the truth about God, even as one  who says   one and one   are three,  departs from   the truth about  numbers;  and there we have  the whole question  in a nutshell.  St. John declared of Jesus that he  came to "destroy the works of the  devil", and our friend will doubtless  admit that Jesus finished his work.  The Master exposed the absolutely  unreal nature of evil in his definition  of the devil as a. "liar", as having no  place   "in the truth,    because theie is  no truth in him", He certainly did  destroy the false claim of evil to be  something or someone, by showing it  to be but a lie. It is significant that  our critic is silent about this quotation  from our Master's teaching, to which  I referred in a former letter. Let me  repeat: When Christian Science, declares of that erroneous sense called  the devil or evil, that "there is no  truth in him", it should be remembered that the Master first said it.  This clergyman's denial that God is  all-in-all, in the face of Scriptural  teaching, is an astonishing position for  a minister of .the Gospel. What message has he, then, for his church,���������that  there is something besides God? According to mythology, this is what  the devils teach. Satan would surely  go out of business, that is, even the  belief in evil would, cease to exist, if  mankind universally accepted the allness of God, and practised it.  Christianity has no other foundation  than the omnipotence and omnipresence, of God. This is what Jesus came  to teach and to demonstrate. Take  this truth away, arid Christianity  would. be a farce and a failure, a mere  mockery of human hopes- The doctrine that evil is a, reality, and that  God is nob all-power, would be as helpless as the multiplication table to  save a mortal from his sins, because  his sins are the direct result of the belief that there IS power and reality  and intelligence, beside or apart from  God. There is absolutely nothing  more to evil than that.  This    clergyman's    reasoning,    or  might I say unreasoning, reminds me-  of a one-time   critic ot Christian   Science who at first stoutly maintained a  belief in the   infinity of God, but who-  when    questioned   "further     blandly  modified it   by asserting   that God is,  wherever the   devil is not.   This may  express   the    present   critic's   views,  since   he   apparently   recognizes   the1"  impossibility of having an infinite God  and a real devil at the same time. Bub  what a doctrine to preach to suffering- '  humanity.���������a God  whose sovereignty  is opposed at every turn by the power  of a rival, whose presence is restricted  at every hand by a hostile presence, a  God who, instead  of maintaining His  own .supremacy,  permits  this adversary to exist, and to afflict and oppress  His   children.   .May   I   quote   briefly  from Science   and Health,   page   110:.  ���������'The Christian God   is universal, eternal, divine   love, which   changeth not  and   causeth     no    evil,   disease    nor  death."  Our friend conceives of himself as  one "set for the defense of the gospel",,  and "to declare the whole council of  God", whatever he understands by  that; but his "defense" consists  mainly in abusing those who diifer  from him, and his sense of "the whole  council of God" seems to be that it is a  sin to condem evil as a lie.  His own statement declares him to  be at variance with Jesus' definition of  evil as untrue, and with the. Scriptural  teaching that "there is none beside  Him," God.
