"Conscription of Wealth"
J. C. Waiters demands that in
Canada wealth and railways and
banks and all the rest Bhall be conscripted prior to conscription of
manpower. What a tit-bit for the
Germansl Conscript wealth to
begin with, so that the Germans
could get hold of all the wealth
without trouble from the man
power! J. C.'s brain is a daisy.
But he's just an average Socialist.
Socialist brains are mostly like
that. They think the world owes
them a good living, and they don't
���know how to get it except by getting somebody to help them grab
what other people have earned.
The world does owe everyfiody a
living, but as Uncle Eben remarked, every man ought to do his
own collecting.���Ottawa Journal-

The Germans can help conscription in Canada by landing some of

This means that China, before
many years pass over the dump of
oblivion will have about 200 millions of men, trained in the tactics
of modern warfare, all ready, when
the time becomes opportune to
verify that statement in the Bible
where it remarks that the "Meek
and lowly shall inherit the earth."

attenuated in blood and treasure

each other China will be ready to

Shell Hole Advocate, Somewhere
in France;
The police are making ready to
a rentless crusade against
questionable women and a close
watch will be maintained for any
who come to try to prey npon the
enlisted men. The campaign is
being regarded by army and navy
officers, the police and the health
department more as a health problem and protection of the enlisted
men than as a moral question.
All nations at war report an
alarming increase of venereal diseases during war time, and the
local authorities intend to do all in
their power to prevent this district
and service men from here suffering from such war time increase.
Acting Chief of Police Patrick
exhibited various authentic reports
of the prevalence of these diseases
and their effects today. Report
of conditions with our own army
along the border during the Mexican crisis appears to show conditions similar to the experiences of
Europe. In this report the evil
that even one infected woman may
do is indicated in the statement of
one such woman that she had entertained 120 soldiers in two days.
A Vienna report was that fully
CO Austrian army divisions have
been drawn from the fighting because of venereal diseases. French
clinic report was that the diseases
increased 50 per cent during the
first 16 months of the war and increased 67 yer cent in the next
eight months.
Another report is that more
fighting men had been incapacitated for service by venereal diseases contracted at mobilization
camps than by all the fighting at
the front, and it is such reports as
this which bring the necessity for
drastic preventative action home
to local authorities at this time,
when many enlisted men are stationed and vast numbers are soon
to be added.
Throughout the warring countries the alarm is felt even more
for the period following the war
than during its duration because of
the certainty that the diseases will
be spread extensively when the infected armies return to tbe civil
life���to their families or families
they will make.
Eighty per cent of the inflammatory ailments peculiar to women
are declared attributed to these
An effort to have venereal diseased persons quarantined is one
of the drastic steps proposed by the
health department for curbing the
social evil and preventing service
men from acquiring these diseases

This well-appointed hotel, in Kootenay's oldest mining town,
is a pleasant home for all who travel. It is delightfully situated,
and from its balconies the vista of lake and mountain scenery
is grandly magnificent: It is but a few yards from the famous
and health-giving hot mineral water springs. Tourists, drummers, miners, muckers, millionaires, and the general public
are alike welcome at this hostelry. The rooms are cheerful,
the meals tasty, and the spirits in the bar are fit for the gods,
while the cigars are a delight to those who flirt with My Lady
Nicotine.   Come for a day, and you will come forever.
Chinese "Sardines"
Some of the fancy-named, high-
priced '''sardines" that are now
being sold in this city and in other
parts of the country are really
nothing other than immature salmon taken illegally by Chinese in
the British Columbia coast waters,
according to the result of investigations made by some of the fishing authorities at Cowichan.
These fish experts claim to have
discovered .a fullrfledged "sardine"
factory on the Cowichan coast.    .
The fact that the Chinese are
putting ont ''sardines" in this way
is given as one of the reasons for
the continually increasing scarcity
of salmon and cod in the inland
waters around Vancouver Island.

mackerel catch
as the present
season. All along the shore every
fishermen has been taxed to handle
each day's catch. Some of the
boats average as many as five
thousand, and during the last few
days there has been in the vicinity
of two thousand barrels landed.
Unfortunately there is a scarcity of
salt, due, of course, to the limited
supply in the Halifax market
owing to war conditions. Should
fishing continue good, in a very
few days the supply of salt in
L'Ardoise may be all exhausted.���

Reopen Rockland
There is Btrong probability that
the Rockland group, formerly
owned by the Rockland Copper
Mining Co., controlled by Jay P.
Graves, A. L. White and associates interested in Granby Mining,
Smelting and Power Co., will be
re-opened this summer under control of local men. The property
was taken over by the Graves in
terests about 18 years ago and for
some time development was maintained nnder direction of Frank
Watson, also heavily interested in
the corporation. For fifteen years
nothing has been done, bnt within
the paet few weeks a mortgage has
been foreclosed by 'interests represented by Walter J. Nicholls, of
this city, and it is understood that
efforts will be made to start operations this summer. The property
lies on the summit between Four-
Mile and Nine-Mile creeks, in the
Slocan Lake region and shows one
of tha few copper-bearing veinB in
the district. The vein is of great
width, with small values in copper
and silver. At one time plans for
very extensive operation were
made, but decline in metal markets
about 15 years ago made them impracticable at that time. Mining
Truth understands from an unofficial source that there is Bome
chance of the property being taken
over by one of the strongest operating concerns in the United States.
Negotiations are now in progress,
under direction of Frank Watson,
who recently returned to this section after many years' absence in
Alaska.^Mining Truth, Spokane.
