Public Meeting
Discusses Gun Fund
Owing to the fact that the government has practically purchased the out
put of the factories for some time to
come, the purchase of machine guns is
out of the question, and the committee
in charge of Lhe- fund.-found it desirable to call a public meeting to discuss
the whole subject.
On Saturday, September 18th a
meeting was held at the. mine, for that
purpose. i
On motion of R. Hilmill and L. S.
Morrison, the names of W. Sampson
and G. Prideau wero added to the
Patriotic Funds committee. Carried.
Moved by J. R. Brown, That owing
to the fact that the Government of
Canada has contracted for the entire
output of the machine gun factories, it
is Resolved that all nionies subscribed
by the employes of the. Hedley Gold
Mining Company, for1 a machine gun
fund, may be used by the Hedley Patriotic Funds Committee for the assistance of Hedley enlisted men, The
Red Cross Society, Canadian Patriotic
Funds Society, or any other charitable
purpose that the coiiimittee may'deem
it advisable to use it-for."  Carried."   .
At a public meeting held in Hedley
Opera-House Tuesday to discuss this
fund, on motion of J. D. Brass and R.
S. Collin a resolution similarly worded
was put through, authorizing the com-

On motion of H.iD. Barnes and'J. G.
Webster it was decided to appoiuttwo
auditors, whose duty it would be to

In demanding therecall of Dr. Dmii-
ba, President Wilson has done more
than lebuke an indiscreet diplomatist
who was found guilty of'grossly repie-
hensible conduct.
He has served notice upon both .Germany and Austria that there is an end
to theanti American conspiracy which
they.have subsidized in this country
in flagrant disiegard of international
good faith and international decency.
The President's note of dismissal
will be read with no less attention "and
interest in Berlin than in Vienna. The
punishment falls directly upon Dr.
Dumba, but the President's action in
its entirety is directed to all whom it
may concern.
President Wilson in dealing with
the Dumba matter has again shown
that clearness and steadiness of purpose which have charactei ized his foreign policy throughout the war. There
was no unseemly haste, but there wjis
no needless delay. When a 11. the facts
were in'Miis - possession* he acted and
acted in accordance with the. honor
and dignity of the Republic. While
Washington was still guessing what
course' he would adopt, the note to
���Vienna was on its way.
In the end the President's disposition
of the Dumba incident wilLmake for a
better    undeistanding     between   the
United States and  Germany and Austria.    It will clear the air.    Both Ber-
liri^arid'Vl'irmiahave^had'tolea'rn'that"
theUnite'd States is a Nation, Hitherto they have regarded it cis a congeries
of   European   immigrants of   various
races and   conflicting sentiments who
were to   be dealt with as pro-German
or .pro-British,   as the case   might be.
The  pro-German   element   has'been
stimulated to putforth all its' influence
and all its efforts in behalf of the Teutonic alliance.    No   obligations of any
sort to the   United States   have been
recognized. The element that was not
pro-German   has been treated ' as pro-
British, to be subdued as a hostile people.    That  there might be Americans
in this country   with rights   that beli-
gerents were bound  to respect has apparently never entered into the calculation of Berlin and Vienna.
Unquestionably the German and
Austrian 'Governments have been
much deceived by the violence, the
shamelessness and the flagrant disloyalty of   many  so called   American

public. The awakening maybe painful
both in Berlin and Vienna, but if Germany and Austria aie at all desirous
of inaintaiiung'friendly relations with
the United States, the most formidable obstacles���which were of their
own creation���are now outof the way.
President Wilson's note demanding
the, recall of the Austrian envoy will
give them a clearer idea of the temper
and purposes of the American Govern- '
merit and the American people than
they have yet had. There, is still time
for them to change their methods and
their point of view toward this country.
The President has ended an intolerable situation, and has ended it in a
manner that reflects the highest credit
upon himself, upon the Government

alum has been mined for more than
half a century.
Work is proceeding on the flume, to
prepare for winter by boarding it up
on the outside. In this way it is hoped
that the trouble from freezing up will
be obviated.
J. Gladden is still at work taking
levels and obtaining data for the Daly
Reduction Co., who are considering
the early installation of a further power plant to make use of the waters of
the Similkameen.
Frederic Keffer returned from Copper Mountain, and oh Thursday of
last week left Hedley for the Apex
Group accompanied by I). Morrison,
Supt. of the Sunset work and M. Leh-
mer, of Greenwood. The car was not
running that day, and they were
obliged to walk. As they took the
tramway for it, the climb must have
proven an appetizer. From the Nickel Plate they walked over to the Apex
Camp, and Mr. Keffer went out by
way of Olalla-
0. H. Carle and boy were   in   town
Tuesday.
They have been deceived too by the
beneficiaries of their own subsidized
propaganda which reported what it
was paid to report. These hirelings,
in their zeal to earn their tainted money, have done their best to convince
Berlin and Vienna that this country
was a legitimate battle-ground of conflicting belligerent interests, and that
a powerful public opinion could be arrayed in support of anything that the
German and Austrian Governments
might undertake to do in bending the
United States to their military needs.
That has been the most serious factor in the diplomatic negotiations between the United States and Germany
in respect to submarine warfare. Germany has persisted in looking upon
the United States as one-quarter German, and into believing that the other
three-quarters could be silenced by intrigue and intimidation.
The Dumba incident has given to
the President the long-needed opportunity to disillusion Germany and Austria and to assert   once and for all the
While our soldiers are fighting vali-
ently at the front for,the victory, that
is sooner or later to come to the Allied
forces, we have in our midst an element that are giving in proportion to
their "means in support of the soldier's
dependants an amount each month,
that counts, for  much.
The Daily Miner, going as it does into the trenches and to the various concentration camps, will carry to the
gallant men these glad tidings.
In another column of this paper is to
be found the monthly- report of the
Patriotic committees of the Le Roi,
War Eagle and Centre Star mines,
which committees, have apportioned
to the various Patriotic funds from the
amout subscribed by the men the sum
of $2,300 for the month just ended, besides setting aside a substantial sum
for emergency cases.
With a display of loyalty, and with
the consideration that is characteristic
of the miner for their.fellow.man and
their families, they agree by resolution
to continue the work of aiding the
dependants through the various channels handing the funds, and in caring
for the soldiers by giving support to
the Red Cross for a further period of
six months.

Just now that   revenue is needed and is a mighty handy asset.  Again, there is the   matter of  compensation.    The  B. C.   government, aiming   at the perfection of legislation on   this very  troublesome question, has gradually, through   the years enacted legislation   which has entailed expense   on the  hotel   men,  which in some   cases has meant  the investment  of considerable  sums   of money.    Is it   fair   to  shut   down now on   these men  and deny them  the time   to reimburse themselves for this expense.    There are  two sides to  every question and there is such  a thing as being   too zealous, to  the extent   of working a  hardship on individuals,  who whatever their business  may be, are  good   citizens,   good   neigbors,  good business men and in some  instances have   the respect and  regard of the very best people  of the town in which they carry  on the business of looking after  the wants of the travelling public.

Does the sense of duty appeal  to you ? There may be those  who turn a deaf ear to the'appeal, but you are not one. Just  ' Avhere your duty lies is not for  us to suggest.  How about patriotism? The  very few within the influence  of this paper who are not amenable to the stirring feelings of  patriotism, must ere this have  realized what the loss to themselves really is, when they see  the happiness others derive  from their soul-stirring love of  country.    How about you?  What of the future? Dp you  line up with the heroes, or with  those who could have but did  not face the emergency of the  Empire, like a man ?  With all the good news yet to  come, how will you feel when  the wire begins to tell of the  glorious assaults the victorious  charges, the conquering marches, and the home-coming of the  boys who have given up all and  risked death for love and truth  and justice ?  THE CRISIS IN B.  C.  PROHIBITION  The prohibition topic seems  to occupy a large part in the  minds of the people of the province at this time. But the  thing that we have to consider  most is the form of prohibition.  A law which does not absolutely and totally prohibit the manufacture, sale and importation,  would be of no use to the province and would only be a detriment.  It seems as though it would  be infinitely better to wait till  the time was ripe to put on the  statute book such a law. At  present it   certainly is inoppor-  If anyone doubts that we  have arrived at the crisis in B.  C. we ask them to contemplate  the sight of the ministers who  subscribe to the Ministerial Association forsaking the once enticing field of gospel preaching  to take sides in a political discussion. Not only that but in  this case the men who preach  about obeying the law and honoring those who are placed in  authority over you, now appear  in the role of those who are  casting reflection and abuse on  the government and all its  agents.  The Crisis to that type of politician arrives when he sees  himself out of power.  They even went to the Trades  Congress with their troubles,  Wonder if the members of the  Congress are aware that the  papers of the province have  been circularised by those cheap  politicians with a view to advertising their "critical position"? But the crisis is so critical with them that they can't  afford to pay even one of those  aforesaid papers for the printing of their appeal, it is run off  on some mimeograph, the emblem of the sweat-shop, perhaps  this same machine, has produced several other anti-government diatribes before.  The Crisis in B. C is the same  crisis in which the nation and  the empire are engaged, we are  at war, and if these ministers  had more sense and less greed  for political power, they would  realize that in this time of the  Empire's crisis, they would serve  the country better by backing  the government and giving it  every ounce of their support,  than by muck-raking and stirring up political dirt which proves nothing except the bitterness of their spleen.  "The  crisis in  Greece recalls  an old prophecy, the conditions  of which seem to be propitious  at present," says a London paper.    "The   king and   queen   of  Greece bear the same names as  the founder of  Constantinople  and his wife���������namely, Constan-  tine   and Sophia.    A   tradition  centuries old, and widely believed   in   by many,   affirms   that  'when  Constantine and Sophia  shall once more reign in Hellas,  Constantinople   will belong   to  the Hellenes."  The Grand Forks Gazette,  one of the best weeklies printed  in the interior, and a������ authority on mining affairs, has this  to say of the future of the mining industry of the province :  All signs point to a boom in  British  Columbia   mining on n scale   hitherto',  unknown.    Encdtmifjing     reports   of  mining   activity   come   from    nearly  every  quarter  of the   Province,   and  those best informed are unusually optimistic.    The metal  prices are stimulating the smelters to top speed. Trail  smelter is spending hundreds of thousands in betterments and has contracts  for its entire  output for at least two  years. Granby is still planning betterments and is reaching out for new properties. The governments are making  definite  steps in the matter of a  zinc  refinery,   and possibilities of a copper  refinery have   become more probable.  There was   never a   time when   more  capital was seeking sane investment  in mining in this Province than at preT  sent.   Here in the Boundary prospectors have   become  more active,  more  of the   smaller properties   are   being  worked and altogether there is a healthy development   which is attracting  wide  attention.    Several    important-  deals are now under way and there is  a feeling  of expectancy  locally   that  more far-reaching deals are being considered.   The future of mining in the  Boundary   never    appeared   brighter  than at present.  78 Years in Business.  Hedley Branch  Capital and Surplus $7,884,000.  C. P.

The rain and mud  were simply fierce.  Those blessed German shells  fairly rocked the ground, and  one high explosive came  through the parapet twenty-  five yards away leaving a hole  lilce a door-way. In places the  trenches were nearly up to our  knees in water, and it. was a  h-ird .job with a full kit to get  through them.  I could not write from the  front this time*,',, as it was none  too cheerful���������and the Germans  only 400 yards in front., So. that  with the big shells, rifles, and  machine   guns, it   kept   us ' on  edge.    Now here' is the. best news  and the greatest delight I have  had for ,-sbrrTe,time'.; ', We, being  a little, behind the front, were  just wandering around among  the boys, when I looked toward  the road, and whom did I see  but good old Hill. You can  realize how glad we were to see  each other again. He stayed  with me a couple of hours. . He  is with the No. 3 Batt. Came  in with some re-inforcements.  He is just the same old boy,���������  cheerful and bright as ever, and  looking well and fit.  We did have a good talk and  were saying how we would like  to be at Hedley, Labor day.  Then we went down to Bob  Hogg's camp, and all three  wandered- nearby.  'Hill is stationed about a mile  from me, and guess when we  go back, his Batt, will be close  by for a few-days.

Sepl*. 21, 1015,  Editor, Hedley Gazette,  Hedley, B. C.  Dear Sir: '  "With your kind permission I would  like to offer some comments upon the  two letteis, written by a clergyman,  which appeared in your it-sue of Sept.  9. These letteis arc rather extraordinary, if fiir nothing else than the  amazing assumption that, because the  *   l  writer has  read.the Cinistian  Science  textbook,   lie is then-lore   entitled  to  speak   with authority   concerning its  t **  teachings.    He knows,  of course, that  -  . -.  infidels  have read the Bible carefully,  hut hi* would   not'on that account accept them as   authority on  the sacred  writings.  ' i  Obviously   what is really   meant is,  that although   the writer has read the  Christian   Science   textbook,  he does  . <  not understand it.    However as many  j i-  do read and understand this hook, our  critic must in all  honesty admit that  the fault   must lie   with himself.   Let  me   say   in all   kindness, judging  by  what he  has   written,    that what   he  would  describe as   Christian   Science  would be piornptly repudiated by. any  Christian   Scientist.    In one   letter he  twice misnames this book, so that if  he cannot even quote its title correctly  he can hardly claim to be an authority  41  upon its contents. It is possible' to  mis-ieuda book, ignoring its author's  viewpoint, as to utterly miss its real  meaning; and this is evidently what  has been done in this c-ise.  There is no doubt, and there never  has been, that Christian Science differs widely from popular or accepted  theological teaching regarding God  and man, and the problem of human  salvation; but it does not therefore follow that it is not in accord with inspired Scriptural teaching. At no  point does Christian Science depart  from the fundamental truths of Christ-  ianity,   although it may   depart from  Send in your personal items to the  Society Editor and help to make the  local paper interesting.

Keremeos, B.C.  man-made doctrines-and creeds that  have divided Christendom into numerous sects, and that have not prevailed  over the evil'.that' is in the world,  which evil, by the way, this critic takes such.apparent satisfaction in defending as real. When spiritually understood the Scriptures sustain. ������������very  statement of Christian. Science, our  friend's objections notwithstanding.  The statement that Christian Science substitutes another book for the  Bible is an invention, pure and simple.  The Bible, and the texttboolc of Christian Science, are read side by side at  every Christian Science service. It  would be quite as truthful to say that  a minister substitutes another book  for the Bible because he uses a Commentary in preparing his sermons: or  that the preacher substitutes his own  views for the Bible because he assumes  to interpret its teachings to his con-  gregation. As a matter of fact, a great  many persons have come to study and  to love the Bible as a result of their  interest in Christian Science.  The charge that Christian Science  treats the human body as of first importance is another fable, though one  ;not'soirequently-;niet,_with, for most  persons will do everything possible to  have- ^healthy- body*' and they . are  none.the'worse' Christians for that. If  our critic'*'has - read*->'-<Science and  Health" carefully.as be,state's, he must  have come across the: following, on  pagel5Q: "the -mission" oft Christian  Science n'owj as in the time of its earlier- demonstration,, is not primarily  one of physical healing." This physical healing, Mrs. Eddy goes on to state  is "to attest the reality of the reality  of the higher mission of the Christ-  power to takeaway the sins of the  world." Also in her little book, "Rudi-  mental Divine Science;" Mrs. Eddy  says: "Healing'physical sickness is the  smallest part of Christian Science. The  emphatic purpose of Christian Science  is the healing of sin,"  Our friend has no doubt noticed that  practically all of the so-called miracles  of Jesus were concerned with the healing of the body, ,or in connection with  bodily 'wants.- CHe surely would not  wish to be understood-as implying  that our Master made too much of the  healing of the body; but that would be  the natural conclusion, since Christians are commanded to take up the  cross and follow Christ. It might also  be noted that Jesus used no drugs. We  have no record that he recommended  his patients to go to the physicians if  were sick again, In the case of- the  woman who .had "spent all her living  upon physicians, neither could be healed of any" and who eventually applied  to Jesus for help, is it possible that the  Savior erred in "repudiating the sys-:  tern of medicine (and) the skill of the  physician," or did lie do the will of  God by healing the woman without  resorting to-������materia, means?.The obituary list in the daily papers hardly  inspires one with confidence in materia  ruedica as being the rightful substitute  for Christian healing, as this clergyman would have us believe. But clergymen as well as doctors disagree on this  subject, for eminent members of both  professions have admitted that Christian Science does "do the works," our  critic's denial to the,contrary notwithstanding.  As for the attitude of Christian Science towards evil, which seems to  trouble our friend sorely, let me assure  him that Christian Science does teach  most unequivocally that evil, when examined in the light of God's absolute  allness, has neither reality nor power.  He makes no mistake about finding  that in the Christian Science textbook.  If he reads the other works by Mrs.  Eddy he will find it there too. If he  chooses to look he will find it in all the  Christian Science periodicals. There  is no attempt to evade this point, why  should there be, since Christian Science  rests upon the truth that God, or good,  is infinite? The gladdest, thing that  has come to the Christian Scientist, or  that can come to any man, is the absolute assurance that good is supreme  and omnipresent. We are taught in  the Scripture that God is in every  place, how then can evil still have a  place to exist in?  I regret   that lack   of space forbids  taking up all.the points raised in these  letters, but   enough has   been  said to  show how-far   afield their writer is in  his   judgement   of Christian   Science.  While I can heartily sympathize with  his efforts   to reconcile   Christian Science with his own religious viewpoint,  his failure to do this in no occasion for  adverse criticism,   or for the   utterances of opprobrious  epithets and meaningless innuendos.    Invective and v ili  fication are always unsatisfactory sub;  stitutes for dignified  reason and argument, and are often used to cover the  weakness of   one's   position.   Making  reckless charges against a teaching because it differs from one's own  belief  is foolish and unconvincing. If denunciation and abuse   were effective weapons, the Christian Sciehce movement  had long ago collapsed, for these have  been heaped upon this movement and  upon its Founder;   but it continues to  grow   and   to   prosper   because it is  meeting   the need   of -mankind   for a  demonstrable knowledge of God and of  man's   relationship to Him;   and this  practical < knowledge of God's   infinite  goodness and love is all that can meet  this need.   It is  every day   becoming  more generously admitted that Christian Science is of God^ and that it is  vain  to attempt   its overthrow   "lest  haply," in the words of Gamaliel, one  "be found even to   fight ugainst God."  Samuel, Gbbbnwood  "On the Field of Honor"  The publishers of The Family Herald  and Weekly Star, Montreal, are making a strong bid for that beautiful picture, full of pathos, entitled "On the  Field of Honor." It is assumed the pub  lisliers of the Family Herald have in  mind using it as a presentation plate.  It that is so there is a great treat in  store for readers of Tho Family Herald  and Weekly Star this autumn. In  past years The Family Herald of Montreal has been noted not only for the  wonerful excellence of that-journal but  for many beautiful pictures it has presented to its readers. The Family  ���������Herald has a name for succeeding in  anything it undertakes, and we feel  sure if it is humrnly possible to secure  ���������'On the Field of Honor" that the pub-  lishees will succeed in getting it.
