I9I5.-8 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Regular meeting  Jity Council  Complaint of Bank Treatment  in Matter of Loans  The oity oounoil held a mooting laat  Friday morning, following a coi.tmit-  tee mooting ol the whole, oalled to discuss the quootion of the readjjiMnont  ol the salary list of munioipal employees. No decision, however was  arrived at, the matter boinir lift onon  . to afford tho various committees an  opportunity to prepare their estimates  for the year and submit them to the  oounoil at next meeting.  Commentira- upon a letter from the  Canadian Order of Chosen Friends.  whioh stated that they were twine;  considerable difficulty with mini ���,polities in various parts of ihe com try  who were unable to meet their debenture coupons. Alderman Sutherland  said the attitude of the banks toward  municipalities at the present time was  entirely unwarranted. No doubt, he  said, many munioipalities uuui gone  further in the matter of expenditure  during the good times than they  should have done, but if the ooutidonoo  of the investors in the oountry was  not to be shaken the debenture coupons must be met. The matter was  a very serious on* for the vhole country and he thought that united action  should be taken by all muaioipulities  to secure better treatment. He pointed  out that in oase of Kelowna an application hod been made some time ago  for ��� loan of $16,000 against current  revenue to pay debenture interest coupons, and that it had not vet been  granted, and it would appear that  other munioipaHticB were getting the  same treatment. He proposed that  the matter be brought to the attention of the Dominion minister of finanoe and that other munioipalities be  asked to take the same aotion.  The oounoil also dedded to notify  the Bank of Montreal that unless they  agreed without further delay to advance tbe $18,000, the oounoil" would  probably take steps to transfer the  sinking fund and make finanoial arrangements with another bank. The  finanoe oommittee wai also ianruottd  to apply for a loan of $10,000 (gainst  a proposed issue of debentures lor the  construction ot a branch sewer to the  tohool.

Alderman Duggan informed tbt oounoil that tht porki oommittee hod prepared a rou"*i estimate of- their rro-  poeed expenditure for the year whioh  amounted to $7H in addition to relief work.

An official announcement waa maale  bv the Cunard Line that second class  passage across the Atlantio had been  reduced to $50 on all vessels of that  line, including the Lusitania.

GOODAGRE PASSES .AWAY  AT VICTORIA  Alleged Blackmailer  SenrUp For Trial  Threatening Letters are SigneJ  by Black Hand  The case of Luigi Demarco, the Italian youth who was arrested some lime  ago on a charge of Mending blackmailing letters to John Caaorso. c-i.ue up  for preliminary hearing Monday, aiter  having been remanded several t-mee  Owing to tbe serious nature of the  offence the provincial oolice department had despatched Chief ItoUctive  Green from Vancouver together with  Mr. Matteo Falconi, an Italian interpreter to assist the local police-  From the evidence it appear. ,d tl at  last September Mr. J. Casorso received a letter signed "Black Hand/'  demanding that the sum of #ft0Q he  placed in a sack and laid in u spot  indicated near the corner of the 0. K.  Lumber Co.'s yard, on pain of hut ing  his head cut oil and other dire dit-.-t,-  ters happening to himself end bis  sons. Although an attempt ras made  to trace the origin of the letter nt the  time, the matter waB droooed wil lout  any trace of the offender ieing found.  Early last month, howevjr, the  blackmailing correspondence was resumed, and eeveral letters were sent,  each more .-insistent than : he lest.  This time the money was to be placed  one of the lavatories at the lake-  view Hotel. The last letter stated  that one of the genuine l31ack J'r-nd  members had come to Kelowna to assist the writer. Still more t < rrible  threats of vengeance were made iu ettta  the money was not forthcorni.ig, and  thie desperate character, who cared for  nothing, would certainly carry them  out.  A police trap was .aid and although  not entirely successful suspicion fell  on Demarco, and the police paid a  surprise visit to his room, i ver the  Oak Hall. A search of his rockets  led to the discovery of a sheet of paper on which was the oommenoejQ-mt  of a letter, similar in style to those  sent to Mr. Casorso. The p^per on  which this scrap was written ua? of  identically the same kind as that on  which the blackmailing letters wire  written, and handwriting experts huve  expressed the opinion that they were  written by the same hand.  Demarco protests that he is hinoccnt  of the charge, and that he picked up  the paper amongst some rubbish in the  back yard.  The accused was committed fur trial  at the next assizes.  On February 20th the death cf Mr.  Sam Goodacre took place at ids residence in Victoria. For over two  years past hia health has been fcradu-  allv failing. The end came' quite suddenly and Mr. Goodacre passed (.euce-  iully to rest a few days after his tt2  birth. Although he did not lo k0 or  appear1 as an old man, and ui to the  last took the keenest interest in all  doings of the day,'especially in the  present war, which he hoped lo see  concluded.

Although both political part in ,are  busy gettinc their organizations into  shnpc for tho contest, and rumors are  not wanting regarding probable candidates, it is perb&ni nrtma-  ture to mako mention of an** particular names. Tho fact should not be  lost sight of, however, in the heat of  party feclin" that tho new arrangement of seats gives Kelowna a cimnco  for tho first time to get on the mup  in a political sense, and opcus up  possibilities of advancement which  were not to be thought of while we  Wore pluying nccond fiddle. It is pcr-  hapB not tho very highest ideal to  follow, but wo could surely bo excused  under the circumstances, if we kept in  view when selecting a representative  for thc district, the need of sending a  man who would carrv around wilh  him at Victoria a lively remembrance  of this portion of the UkanutMn.  The storm in a teacup -vhich wus  raised in the House last week about  the Hon. Price Ellison's purchase of  cattle proved after all to involve nothing worse on his part than un indiscretion. For a cabinet minister to  dabble in such a transaction was dangerous to say the loust, even though  the Colony Farm from which the stock  was purchased did not como x-nr'er the  control of his own department. Financially Mr. EIHson has shown the  transaction to have been a consider  able loss to him, but his punishment  in being involved in charges r.f graft  which certainly looked bad for a time  was even more severe. E��pbmation  was rendered all tho more difficult by  tho absence of the superintendent of  tbo Colony Farm, who made the oeal.

It is really only a vc  modified form of moratorium, and in  its preparation the government has  had the advantage of the experience of  Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba  to go upon. The ft. C, bill has also  been purposely laid over since its introduction early in the session, in  order to five nmnle opportunity for  tho fullest investigation and criticism.  The result is a bill which while affording necessary protection during  these strenuous times to the man who  has invested his savings in a home  for himself und his family, nuts no  premium upon rash speculation, and  inflicts a minimum (if hardship on  those who depend for a living unon  their mortgage investments. Briefly  the bill provides for the postponement  of all payments of principal sums, and  of interest only in the case *.>[ a bona  fide "home", where the owner from  lack of work or other causes is genuinely unable to make any payments at  all.

Hbborn  of Summerland, who has beooine one  of the beet authorities in Mie province on the growing of early vegetable ulants, and whose original and  highly successful methods, the result  of many years of experience, both in  eastern Canada and the Okanagan  have induced the department of sericulture to seek his aid in oondictiig a  fruit and vegetable experimental station at West Summerland.  The letter reads:  Editor Kelowna Record,  Dear Sir,���Whilo attending the various Farmers' Institute meetings  throughout tho southern portion of  the valley, in company with Messrs.  Winslow and Smith, T explained somewhat my method of growing early  vegetable plants. At the conclusion  of several of tho meetings, wo received  urgent requests to have the information given in printed form. Therefore  Mr, Winslow urged that 1 should offer  it to the various papers of *he southern portion of the valley for publication.  As it is already too late tor the  starting of the seeds for 'he earliest  (ro|is. I will not take up space bv giving directions for this nqrtion of the  work, but will assume that [how who  will be in-owing such wops already  have them started in the hotbed or  greenhouses.  1 find that I get best results by  keeping a night temperature of 55 to  65 degrees and during daylight, 10" to  15 degrees warmer. It should always  be remembered that they will ft and  a muoh,warmer temperature d.-nm* a  sunny day. if some ventilation is given, than if confined in u close atmosphere. The watering of tgo plants  while confined in whatever inside  quarters, is always of extreme importance. Too much water ruuses  soft tender plants. It is, therefore,  much better to give only su.'.-tient  water to keep the plants gr< wine-  healthy, and it is belter to let tho  soil dry fairly well before epnlving  water and to give a fairly good watering when it is applied. This produces much better results thnn applying it little and often. Vlauts usually keep healthier ii watered in tho  morning so that it is thoroughly dried  off before the following night.  My plants are all grown in flats or  shallow boxes, being 12 by 21 inches  and 4 inches deep. 1 havo been able  to produce much mote iatis'ac.tory  plants by growing them in this way.'  With the tomatoes three tran;ip)aut-  ings are made: the first as soon as  tho first two rough leaves are pushing  out fairly well. At this time wo give  than about 2 inches of space. They  are transplanted again when they bo-  gin to crowd too much. To secure  the largest and earliest Wants, there  should not be moro than eight plants  in a flat at the last transplanting. As  the majority of growers, parficultrly  beginners, nre limited as to sna-so. ten  or possibly more plants might be  grown in a box with a fair degree of  success. At the last transplanting,  thc boxes are filled about full of soil.  Only about two inches of ioil i., used  at the lirst transplanting. For this  late transplanting, many will be obliged to use cold frames, covered simpb-  with cotton hs a protection. However  much better plants can be grown if  cold frames, covered with glu.is eou be  erected to give sufficient space under  which to keep tho plants until going  to the field.  Tho best style of cotton cold frame  which I have used is made by having  tho length of the bed running ot *t  and west. A warm locution should be,  chosen for this. If on the south tide  of n building, or other protection,  much better plants may bo expected. I  make this frame by huilding a north  wall of boards, 2 feet hiidi, and a  south wall, eleven and ono-half foot  distance and about fifteen inches high.  These a"rc connected by using rafters  made of 1 by 4 inch boards, placed  about four feet apart. These can bo  made any length to suit the i-ouiie-  ments of the grower. 1 usually get  tottoto one vard in width, sewlnj? four  nieces together and fastening to the  north edge of this frame by -Mending  it over tho    north wall Hliiticiont     to  CLAUDK GRAHAM-WHITE  British aviator, who fell into the sea during a raid of  British aviators on the German military base in Belgium.  the  receive a row of ordinary house laths.  By using three or four nails to eaoh  of these the cotton is made secure.  Bv using strips of lumber 1 by 2 inchi  os in size, and nailing two of these  together in such a manner as to break  the joint, one can make a pole any  desired length. The cotton iB made  fust to those, hence it is easily rolled  up, exposing the plants at any time  for watering or to give additional  ventilation. This cotton covering  should extend over either end of the  bed from six to eight inches, where  it should bo secured. This class of  cold frame does fairly well for the last  transplanting, giving considerable protection during cold windy weigher. If  frost threatens, sprinkle, this cotton  with water when it will fill up and  freeze, which makes it quite sufficient  to keep off a considerable amomt of  frost, if 'fairly heavy cotton is used,  and this is always advisable.  In all cases and with all variebios of  vegetable plants, when they are about  to be transplanted, it iB very imrort-  ant that they should receive a good  watering three or four hp'-irs beforo  disturbing them, giving them time to  drink up all the water thev can obtain  as, after "the roots are disturbed they  cannot again feed themselves Until  they push out small rootlets.  As quito a number ol people are  attempting tho growth of sweet peppers, I might state that mv met Ho .i of  rowing these is to start the seed  nearly as early as the tomatoes, making two transplantings instead of  three, as with tho tomatoes. These  do not require nearly so much ppace  as tomatoes oven for the last transplanting. We grow about 28 plants  to a box. For both of these ciops  I attempt to get the plants hardened  off, in shape to go to the fold, as  soon as it is considered safe from  frost, as tho earlier they are put  their permanent quarters, the earlier  tho crop will be, provided the plants  escapo injury from severe weatlwr.  As we have received many inquiries  regarding growth of cucumbers and  cantaloupes I will undertake to give  directions for these crops within a  week or so, as the seeds for '.rose, even if abundance of hothouse space is  available, should not be started until  late in April. To anyone v-i/ning to  secure seeds for these crops, I wculd  supcrest to use for cucumbers, Arlington White Spine, and for cantaloupes  I havo had good success with P.f'Odoo.  Burpee's Fordhook is also a very good  variety. Yours faithfully,  J. L, HILB0KN.  Manager Provincial Southern Okr-na-  gan Fruit and Vegetable J^oorimmtal  Station. West Summerland, B. 0.

Department of Public "'(arks.  Viotoria, B.C.. 4th Maroh'; 1015.  16-17  Although the chancellor of  the exchequer happily chose the  simile of ''silver bullets" to <���*>���-  plain the economic process^ by  which Germany must Ultimately be defeated, he might, savs  a correspondent of "The Tildes"  with even greater force have  used copper for his illustration,  for as the war progrcrses it becomes more and more evident  that lack of copper will cause  Germ.any the greatest embatass-  ment.  Why this should be so rppears  when we consider the uses    of  copper   in   war material,    for  which   no   possible alternative  exists.   First and foremost,   of  'course, are the cartridge   cases  for   rifles.   The alloy ui copper  and zinc from which rifle   cartridge cases are drawn is so thin  that   the   metal must be verv  pure to   insure   against  flaws.  Then   there   are thfe cartridge  cases for the quick-firers. These  also require the highest quality  of copper and zinc, since    thev  must be exact   to a 500th part  of an "inch and gas tight.     On  shells there are  copper    bands  encircling   the  steel   to ensure  close fitting in the rifling. Pure  copper   is   the only   substance  known to give satisfactory   results.  For field telephones copper  wire is indispensable. Indeed  in the electrical industry generally there is an enormous consumption of copper. The windings on dynamos, for instance,  are all copper. Thousands oi  experiments with alternative  substances have been tried, but  all have failed, Aluminuiti, perhaps, comes nearest, but aluminum cannot be depended, upon,  and certainly for war purposes  its use would not be risked,  though aluminum coated steel  wire for transmission purposes  has in America been parUullv  successful. Still aluminum  could never be used for dvuamou  sinci. electrolysis takes place,  when it breaks almost at once.  In an entirely different sphere  there is a very large consumption of copper in the form of  sulphate of copper for spiayiu  the German vines against tbej  dreaded phylloxera.  One might continue the list  almost indefinitely, but enough  has been said to indicate the  supreme importance of copper  to every nation in time oi war,  and to explain why it is possible to get ��160 paid down in  gold for a ton of copper in anv  form delivered over the German  frontier, although its value in  the 'United Kingdom is only  ��60.  French Bomb That  Freezes  An official note issued bv the 1' ronch  ress bureau declares that the Geimi.n  losses since the beginning -if ihe war  in killed, wounded, siok and minimis  has reaohed the taormo'is tutu. a>f  threo million men. This onlcul-iti tn is  based on tho known casualties in ten  florman regiments.  France has obtained a terrible  new weapon in an air bomb just  brought into use. Its effects are  amazing.  "When it bursts it simply  lays everything out flat," stated one of the airmen using it  "Men go down like ten pins,  buildings collapse like a house  of playing cards, guns arc turned over as if bv some unseen  hand. liven the earth disturl ed  is instantly flattened out by the  same extraordinary waves ot  force.  "Extreme cold is produced at  the moment of explosion, cold  so intense that I felt it invself  when I dropped mv first bomb  at a he ght of about Son feet.  It fell on a section of Germans  bivouacking in a field. 1 estimate that at least thirty men  were killed within the area of  the explosion. Had they ��� been  massed more densely move of  them would have been killed.  "Death from these bombs is  almost instantaneous jwir.g to  the intense cold and concussion.  The bomb is similar in size  and weight to the dynamite  bomb hitherto used with great  effect. The material composing  it, which is simple, can be conveyed to any air base, and the  bomb can be filled by the airman or his assistants before he  starts.

Dear   Sir,���In vour periodical  of the i8th ult., appeared a. letter over  the signature of 1). V.  Kerr in reference to the atebate  held in your city oh prohibition.  The   excessive or moderate use  "of the   stimulant is condemned  by both parties. Intemperance is  a   curse to all  civilized nations  and   the   friends of total    abstainers for the past half   century have been making an ofir.rt  to   stop   the    tide  of ihiijUl'.v  which towers, head and shoulder  above   most if   not   all  oilier  evils.     The   abstainers    party  which   consists  of ministers of  all   denominations,   with members of their respective ci:ng" ligations, with few exception:) are  interested in ameliorating     the  suffering   conditioos   of    mm-  kind in promoting some tempt)  ance reformation.    The temperance   friends have been making  good   headway in both Canada  and the United States and eventually   will   succeed,   not-v;lh-  standing the opposition by manufacturers, wholesale   and retail  dealers in the traffic and many  who   profess   to   be   moda-r.ite  drinkers.   These    nobel licensed  victuallers      while     professing  much horror of drunkenness will  never spend an hour together to  discuss any scheme or matter !o  do away or abolish drunkenness  but they are most active,     enthusiastic and energetic   in opposing everv plan that has been  put forward in the interest     of  temperance organizations.   The  Duncan Act, Scott Act,    Local  Option was bitterly opposed and  E. King Dodd, was engaged at  SSo a night to plead their cause.  To pav S8o a night the)'   must  have been thoroughly aroused to  the    fact that the    temperance  party was adopting a most unwise course to obtain their ends,  or else King Alcohol would receive such a blow that he Would  fail to score his usual number of  victims.    Mr. Kerr   is .a   good  speaker and eloquent oiat or and  if he could only be converted to  the righteousness of prohibition  he would be a host in the temperance armv that would fairly  route the enemies' cati'.p  I know  that some look upon drink as a  social virtue and that it br;ngs  out the fine qualities in the man  and     when    Mr.     Kerr   mentions    social    drinkim".   light,  warmth,     companionship   and  mutual    treating,    am    I   to  infer     that     he     c nsidc-s   a  jovial   good   place   fair   vajun*  men to  "Spend their ev> u-mos n  is Hie   barroom.   I think il   a  bad place.   I   know it   to'h .ve  been   the   ruination   of    many  bright young   men.   If a   good  place for males it should be for  females.     How    many   of you  good    moderate drinkers would  like   to   have    your wives olid  daughters having a good   lime  at the bar.   Such   refining   influence cred.led to tiie |*,ir could  well be dispensed with.  Now as to outbreaks that cannot be helped when under the  influence of strong drink. I  know of kindly disposed and  good meaning men who are  turned into demons when drunk.  I could give hosts of instances  but will mention one. A youty  Englishman was sent to this  country, his parents were wealthy and would remit all lhe  money he could make use a>f. 1 Ie  was a fine looking young man,  cultured, good company and he  would make a call at your home  and was most pleasant, but  when under the influence nl liquor vou would think he would  be a fit subject for the lunatic  asylum.  It was also mentioned iu the  debate that it was a rare  thing in Germany, to see a man  drunk. Thc Germans in a certain district that I kuow, * w ith  the exception of verv few drink  to excess and quite a few expired when drunk. Whiskey in  abundance at, their weddings  and generally a noisy lime and  assaults. Some men can drink  moderately but it is impossible  for others? These Mr. K. thinks  we should study as how best to  treat them. He thinks prohibition would not rlo it. I think  prohibition would produce results bevond our most &an��uin"  expectations. It was not claimed in that debate that it would  entirely root out drink, -my  more than the law against murder was a guarantee that murders would be at an end. I  know of men who drink to excess and it is so hard for  them   to resist when in    com  pany where treating is going on  only wish it was out of their  reach and would gladly vote for  prohibition. One gentleman, who  would vote for prohibition was  proud his two sons were abstain  ers and had been on the water  wagon for three months at, a  time but in times of temptation  would fall. I have seen horrors  and outrages more than I ca..  describe. Property wastcd.like  dew before the. morning sUn.  Bright, strong young men physically and many .dear friends  victims to strong drink. Oiten  wc hear of depredations, perpetrated by men paralyzed with  drink. An American orator  says it fills our jails, crowds  our penitentiaries and furnishes  thc victims for the scaffold. Thc  poet no doubt knew what he  was talking about when he said:  "The cholera, the plague or  the sword, such ruin never  wrought,  As I in mirth, on the innocent  have brought;  And still I breathe upon th>m  and they shrink before    my  breath,  And year by   year, thousands  tread    the    dusty   way   of  death."  Some   of   thc debaters airing  their eloquence   thoupht il preposterous   to sweep the    whole  Dominion with one blow.   What  has   Russia    just   been   doimr?  With one stroke of the pen one  hundred and sixty millions heve  been put on the water     wagon.  Such a   reformation  never preceded it.     No doubt it  is    unparalleled in "the annals of   the  world.  The national drink of Russia  is said to be more deadly than  that of other nations and deadens the brain of the nation.  Drink was the national curse of  Russia and she never experienced a sober dav until the sale of  vodka was prohibited. After  the few months trial there was  general rejoicing and it is n iw  most emphatically stated that  it is there to stay. Those who  have been m'ost injured arc the  most enthusiastic over thc result. Thc men who were in  such a condition as to beggar  description, are now -leant?  dressed well fed, clothed and in  their right mind, with money in  tneir pockets.  Thc revenue has always  been      a great        bugaboo  with the rum party. When W.  E. Gladstone was waited upon  by a deputation of brewers who  wanted to know how he was jgo-  ing to raise the revenue if pr,>H-  bition was enforced, his reply  was that with a sober community, not wasting their earnings,  he had no fear with regard to  the revenue, The revenue does  not trouble Russia in the le.irt  if the nation is poorer the subjects are richer and sober and  sober for thc first time in their  national existence. The eflicieicy  of lhe subjects will more tl an  compensate for thc deficient revenue. War is most terrible, but drink has been a much  greater curse to Russia. If thc  war has brought about the great  reformation it would be some  compensation for the war. One  writer has said "if men die that  others might live, surely   thev   ���       MC0JITI  ���    II <<BSCS*smmmmWmfl0mmW  sume few aver dreamed of audi  a reformation in Russia, Unsaid that W. T. Stead, that  grand and distinguished Eaglish  man who went down with the  Titanic said itt 1893 tha * in less  than 25 years Russia would  have prohibition. I cannot  conceive how anv intelligent  person can compare the drunken  Russia of the past with the sober Russia of the present and  not favor prohibition, -"ho'ild  other nations not follow this  noble example of Russia? If we  had prohibition in our Dominion,, the world would be brighter  and the subjects better. Such a  transformation would gladden  the hearts and cheer the homes  of many and not tne least the  many who have appetites thev  can't control. Sober men 1 are  wanted in every occupation, mo  fession and avocation in life.  There is a weight of inefficiency  .to all who indulge. Numbers  regret ever having become.addicted to strong drink. I know  one bank manager with verv  few equals and no superiors dismissed for frequently visiting  that convivial place, the bar.  Young men, abstain from  drink. It in no way makes you  more respectable or raises vou  in the scale of moral excellence,  and you certainly run a risk of  being materially wronged. Take  my advice to totally abstaiu  from all intoxicating drinks and  I will stake my reputation as a  prophet that you will never regret it in time, or in the countless ages of eternity. The temperance friends are gaining considerable ground, making sure  progress, adding to their numbers. We have the drunkaid'.-  wife, the drunkard's children  and God and humanity on our  side.  Twenty-eight vears ago I was  in Detroit when an attempt was  made to pass prohibition in  the state of Michigan. Ladies  took {he platform against the  enemy.

Westbank 11.30 a.m.  The New York Times publishes a communication from a neutral naval olliccr, which is, in  part, as follows:  There has been a tendency of  late in the American, English  and neutral press to criticize  the English naval strategy, end.  to imply that the English naw  has not shown the efficiency expected of it. I wish to show  what the British navy has accomplished, the requirements of  British naval strategy, and thc  difficulties under which the British naw operates. For what  the English naw has accomplished the British people bhould  feel the greatest gratitude.  As loner as the sea is .>pcn lathe Allies, and closed to the  Germans, the certainty .if German defeat can be safelv presumed and vise versa. England  and France, by their own admission, would be compelled to  sue for peace in short order,  were thev to lose control o! lho  sea. I shall show that German,  is doomed to defeat if British  naval strategy keeps control of  the sea.  As this war will eventually be  one of economic, financial and  military exhaustion, Germany,  lacking control oi the sea, is  bound to be lhe first belligerent  to become exhausted,-for the  Allies have the resources oi the  whole world to draw oil, with  the exception of Germany and  Austria-Hungary. As yet Germany and AusLia-Hangar,  have been living on the -.applies  ou hand at the beginning oi the  war, but very soon their sup  plies of raw material lor manufacturing purposes will be exhausted and every Jay wil!  bring additional pressure Lorn  their manufacturers to conclude  peace.  Germany has completely lott  her export trade, and, wnat is  even more important, is unable  to import the raw material���  about $700,000,000 worth��� absolutely necessary nol -only for  export trade, but also for home  consumption. Moreover, about.  j6,oo,ooo,ooo worth of provisions are annually imported into Germany. German manufacturing must have practical'-  ceased, except, of course, manu-  faclurcs oi munitions of war 01  material necessary lo carry an.  war, such as railroad supplies,  clothing, etc. And the almost  complete destruction of German  manufacturing affects most pro  foundly the taxing powers ol  the government. Germany de  pends for revenue'on the income  taxes, and taxes on manufacture and sale of beer, wines, liquors and tobacco. The revenue  from every one of these sources  is at least cut in half, and the  financial markets of the world  are closed to her by the operation of sea power.  In the present war on land the  Lord is on the side having a  preponderance of heavy artillerv  and artillery ammunition, Tin-  Allies have heretofore beiat deficient in heavy artilhr and  have at all times been subjected  to a heavy artillery fire which  they have been unable lo it-  turn. Moreover, Germiiaiv 1 od  accumulated, in times ol peace,  enormous reserve supplies of artillerv ammunition, enough, In  fact to last for about 6 months,  or, at the most, nine months in  the ease of a war on two ftouis.  After about June 1, iyi*;, Germany will have to aeiy ,,n lie  daily- output of artill-vy tiiniaiu-  nition. At about the same :.i lu  tho Allies should be on ah civility with Germany as regards  heavy guns and should have her  under a heavy disadvantage as  the whole world will 1�� manufacturing shrapnel and common  shell for thorn to blow the Germans out of their trenches.  Bv June, 1915, the supply of  ammunition expected daily bv  the Allies can be easily double  the Austrian and Gorman output. It will then be possible for  the Allies to use their preponderance of infantrv, and with  the first general retreat in Belgium and France, Germanv mm 11  begin to realii-c that she cannot  conquer the world in arms, for  she cannot break the inexorable  influence of English sea power  which will have made possible  this concentration of men and  resources aiminst her.  I think I have established in  contention     that   the   British  navy   has kept control of    the  sea, has so far prevented the ab  solute defeat of the Allies, and  will, unless its power be broken  eventually force Germany 10  terms. Let us now examine the  strategy of England and Germany. The result will-bo, 1  think, to demonstrate that England's strategy has been of a  high order, in view of her difficulties.        *-  England is compelled (1) to  watch with increasing vigilance,  nit'ht and dav, the two outlets  (rom the Nyorth Sea���many hundreds of miles apart���the English Channel to the south and  the wide stretch of several hundred miles between {Scotland  and Norway to the north; (21  lo maintain a line or line of  scouts from Denmark to Holland, so as to prevent a surprise  attack; (.') to stop and examine  all merchant shipping passing  through those waters; (4) to  convey English troops and supply ships to France; ij-jio chase  and destroy German commerce  raiders; (6) to watch all neutral ports in which German  merchant ships are lving 1  lo prevent the invasion of ling-  land by Germany by uuarding  a tremendous length of English  coast lino so that the menace lo  the German fleet, ttfanspo  and supply ships will be so  ureal thai raids will be few and  far between, and so that lhe  lime spent by thc raiding fleets  will be insufficient to land anv  troops, artillery, and supplies  (S) to prevent thc Belgian po !  from being used as submarm:  bases, and to assist the extreme  left of the Allies on tho Belgia 1  coast; (ii) to keep several hundred trawlers engaged in dragging for mines laid by ships Hying a neutral flag, and to lav  mines themselves oil the German coast.  The dilliculties under which  the British navy operates are  tremendous. To carry out the  necessities of their strati  whieh I have already outliueii,  requires lo a certain extent a  division of their forces, in the  North Sea the temperature ,s.  during the winter frequently below zero, and onlv six hours of  daylight, owing lo heavy fogs  and snow storms which prevail  during a large part ol the time.  No man knows whether or nol  the next moment mav be his  lasl, whether or not in a twinkling of an eye he mav be dump  ed into the icy depths, 'ihe .repair, supply, and coalin" of thia  enormous fleet is a problem ol  great difficulty, for tho forces at  sea must nover be seriously  weakened.  Taking intaa consideration lhe  fact that manv eminent otltc'ura  including Sir Percy Scott, the  father aif modem gunnery,' stated before the war that the submarine had ma(Je the battleship  obsolete; that England is 01 necessity forced to divide hor fleet  that hor superiority lo the Germans, in dreadnoughts is on  five to three; that tho Gormans  aro able to make a sortie .at .iuv  moment bv day or night iu concentrated force; that tho Kng-  llsh fleet is in tho position (af a  man with his arms bound, unable lo strike back, but ie'-ltnjf  sure that tlio hour of vetieoaueej Hah fleet,  will soon be nigh; that l.ngland'iis duty.  French Section Would  Have Signed Peace  Ah article published in the  'Democrate de Dclemonf and  reproduced in several Paris papers by consent of the government censors states that previous to the battle of tiie fclarue  a party existed in France which  was ready to sign a peace, at  the same time ceding to Germany the towns of Briey and  Nancy, French Lorraine, the island of Madagascar and thc pro  lectorate of Morocco, as well  as paying an indemnity. Gen.  .Jolire, the French commander-  in chief: president Poincare and  most of the cabinet ministers,  were opposed to the plan, bit  the situation became so tense  as to necessitate the resignation  of Adolphe Messimy as minister  of war and the formation of a  ministry of national defence.  After the battle of the Marne  the Germans proposed peace  through ex-premier Joseph Caillaux, offering to eive up the  provinces of Alsace and Lorraine with thc exception of  Strassburg, receiving in ex  chan-e a small zone on the  North Sea Coast, extending  from Calais to Dunkirk. France  in addition, was to acknowledge  the annexation of Belgium by  Germany. The answer to this  proposal was the signing of a  convention by the allies to make  no separate peace. After this  M. Caillaux was anpointed to  an important position in the  pay corps, but later was relieved of this post and sent on a  mission to Brazil.  The spreading of wood ashes  unon land has beneficial effect  upon tho soil, the potash content being an excellent fertilizer.

Those amateur strategists 111  England who demand that thc  Knglish should charge madly  ovor mine* fields to get at the  Germans, simply ask England  to commit suicide as a nation,  for time works on the side of  the Allies. The situation of the  Allies does not render the taking of chances necessary, but  criminal; a policy of watchful  waiting must be pursued. When  a few noneoiubatants in an unfortified town arc killed, the  English should remember that  millions upon millions a.e suffering in France, Poland, Belgium, and Galieia, and give  their fleet the deepest confidence  and gratitude, for in the Eng-  every   man ii> doing  .   u\  MOROCCANS ON* THEIR WAY TO THE FRONT  Thc change of climate has caused great suffering among  thc Moroccan troops.

The Pastimes are still at tie ton  of the league standing and aro btill  meeting and defeating all comers. This,  week they took throe straight from  the Dreamlands.  Owing to the recruiting for tho B. C.  Horse the BoaverB lost Colin McMillan  this week and K. J.

The game between this  team and the Shamrooks sohed-.'-.d (or  Tuesday night was postponed rnd is  being played this afternoon.  The Bears, who have held lhe cellar  position since, the opening of the  league have this week climbed cut of  the basement and are now one game  ahead of the Shamrocks.  Next week will see the finish t f the  league and will bring to a close one  of the most successful seasons sport  ever seen in Kelowna. Two leagues  have been finished in splendid style  and have afforded the maximum of enjoyment tor both bowlers *nd sK-ctu*  tors alike.  At the olose of this league there  no doubt some of the summer games  will come into their own and i jobably  a "Five-pin" or a "Heven-pin" la ague  will bo started.

The small  Belgian town of Vise is situated  on the banks of the River Meuse  and within three or four miles |  of the Dutch frontier, across  which some 700 Vise fugitives  hurried to the neighboring town  of Meastritch, and is eight to  nine miles north of Liege (since  made famous by its defensive  fortifications).  Vise was invaded bv a team  of one hundred motor cars all  crowded, with German infantry  on^ the dav war was declared.  This ruse was adopted in the  hope of obtaining possession o'  a valuable passage without firing a shot; but before one entry  to the town could be made the  cure of the parish alarmed the  town by ringing his church bell,  thus enabling the town ��uard  and inhabitants to delay the  enemy and give the defendine  troops time to destroy two important bridges.  Most brutal conduct   towards  the townspeople followed.     The  burgomaster   and chief citizens  as   well as the faithful, cleic  men were immediately shot.   o   Heavy Losses from  Foot and Mouth Disease  F. W. GROVES  M. Cu.Soe.CE.

British naval authorities are reported to have devised a new submarine  gun which distributes shrapnel with  great precision under water,  'Bukowina   is   a duchv   and  crown   land of Austria and   is  sandwiched in between ihe province of Galieia," we read in an  interesting   article in thc London   Times, and the northwestern frontier of Roumania. Bukowina means the country of the  beech   tree,    and a great   portion of it is forest clad, fur   it  lies amongst the southern spurs  of the woody Carpathians. Czer-  nowitz, its capital, has    about  70,000 inhabitants, and the population   of the   duchy is some  three-quarters of a million.   Of  these   about 40 per cent.,    are  Rutheries,    and   nearly another  4<> Per   cent., are Roumanians,  the balance being made up    of  the usual Balko-Hungarian mixture, Magyars, Germans, Poles,  Jews   and   Gypsies.   The R011-  umanian people in the Bukotvina  and in Transylvania are not as  might be supposed settlers who  have overflowed across'the Roumanian   frontier.   They    have  their roots deep in history. Roumania herself is a geographical  anomaly, and it is verv curious  to find a Latin enclave in eastern Europe surrounded jn    all  sides bv Slavs and Hun;j.irians  for not   only do   Roumanians  speak a Latin tongue closely resembling Italian,   but in   spite  of   all   admixture   with Slavs  Turks,   and Phanariotc Greeks  thev retain to this dav   stiunc  sirns of   their   Italian lineage.  Roumania  is  the   modern descendant of Trajan's Roman colony in Dacia, and   the explanation   of thc   Roumanian in the  Bukowina and Transylvania lies  in the fact that Trajan's    pro  vince   included both these    districts and was much larger   in  extent   than the   modern kingdom of Roumania."

Read the following:  BUTTER REGULATIONS  The "Canadian Grooer" oalled the  attention of those interested in ihe  butter trade to the legislation which  went into effect on the 1st of Ootober,  1914 regarding the necessity for all  butter in packages or wrapped in  parchment being labelled "Dairy Butter." Another .word may n*,t bo  amiss. This means that no dairy butter can be bought or sold in plain  wrappers or unbranded paokagos. No  butter can be bought or sold under  brand of separator. The words 'Dttiry  Butter" must aopear on the VMpmter  or package in letters at least a quarter or an inch square. It might again  bo emphasized also that all butter in  prints must be of the full net weight  of 16 ounces. The penalty under the  act is a fine of from C10 to 13(1 for  each offence.  This new legislation it will he noted  applies as well to the person buying  as the person selling and therefore affects everybody engaged in all branches of tho trade. Grocers will do very  woll to bring tho matter to tho attention of any butter makers who may  still be bringing in their product in  plain wrappings. Whey butter must  be so labelled even when mited with  dairy butter and dairy butter retains  its "labol" though it be mixed with  the oreamery product.
