PATRIOTIC  MEETING.
The Patriotic Fund meeting held
in the City Hall on Thursday evening took place under the most favorable conditions and the object was endorsed by a large number of citizens. The chair was
occupied by the mayor who outlined the objects of the' Patriotic
Fund Association. C. B. Winter
was retained as secretary treasurer,
Mayor McLaine, president, Dr.
McLean, vice-president and the
executive consists of P. H, McCur-
rach, Judge Hallet, R. G. Hargreaves and A. F. H. Meyers. The
Greenwood branch of the Canadian
Patriotic Fund has a popular president and vice-president, a strong
executive and starts out without a
single handicap. A prolonged and
sometimes warm debate led to the
unanimous decision to donate all
the funds collected in Greenwood
to the Canadian Patriotic Fund,
and should anyone hear of any
case of distress to let the organization know and the matter shall be
properly and quietly dealt with.
The unemployment question which
was mooted at the meeting was
quickly shown to be of too widespread a character to be dealt with.
Not the least gratifing feature of
Thursday night's meeting was the
general testimony of all to relieve
any cases of local distress and the
statements of Judge Hallet, Dr.
McLean and the Mayor met with
the heartiesG approval of all. The
subscription list is posted up in the
two banks where donations will be
received.

NEWS OF CARMI
Miss Bertha' Bulger, of Nelson,
has been the guest of the Misses
Jeanne and Irene Crawford for the
past two weeks. During her visit
she has had considerable excitement and states she likes Carmi
for several reasons.
Arthur McMillan has returned
from Greenwood. He states that
it seems good to be back in a lively
town and that he feels capable of
turning hand springs at any time.
Lester Blake, alias Archibald
has returned from Greenwood with
a surplus of about four inches diminished from his face. He states
he had some time* a part from his
encounter with the dentist.
E, G. Snedaker, former mill man
of the Carmi mine, left last week
for hiB home in Denver, Col. to
accept a position for the government. We wish him the utmost
of good fortuue in his new work.
The Carmi mine is again iu operation under new management. The
expectations are that the mill and
mine will continue throughout the
winter months.
Henry Dissault leftfor his home
in Spokane last week.
A party of Phoenix people, including Mayor Matheson, B. Cosgrove
Rev. Ark. Whifetaker and N. Carson arrived in town on Wednesday j
feo spend a few days hunting. The
men are seen regularly every |.
morning Starting out with their j
lanterns but have notyet succeeded I
in landing any deer. Meals-arej;
served afe all hours afe camp and!
several of the Carmi residents have i
taken advantage of the good;
meals produced by the cook. i
A party of Greenwood citizens j
visited the vicinity of Carmi and'
Beaverdell lasfe week. It looks,
bad for Greenwood and Phoenix to ')
have all tbe leading men heading
for the Kefefele river. Next time'
they visit this conntry they are.re-
queeted to stay off the Main street
at nighfe and leave a remembrance
on their departure.
At a public meeting held in the
City Hall on the evening of the
14th insfe., it was decided to organize a branch of the Canadian Patriotic Fund.
The executive committee requested me to_ write a brief
article for the press stating the objects and scope of this organization.
The headquarters of fehe league are
at Ottawa with branches at principal local points throughout the
Dominion, and on the central executive are found the names of
Canada's leading men.
The object of the Fund is to receive contributions to assist the dependents of those of our citizen
soldiery who are afe present, or who
may afterwards go to the front, to
fight the battles of the Empire in
the titantic struggle which is now
going on in Europe.
While there might be differences
of opinion regarding the method
of settling international disagreements, by force of arms, there can
not be any diversity of opinion
among patriotic Canadians, regarding our duty to contribute, where
necessary, towards the support and
comfort of the fathers "and mothers
and of the wives and children of
tbe men who have gone to the war.
Contributions can be handed to
any member of the committee and
will be acknowledged both by fehe
local secretary, C. B. Winter, Esq.
and by the general secretary, H.-B.Ames, M.P., Montreal, and may,
if desired be paid monthly. From
this central fund, fehe needy, on
the advice of the local committee,
.will receive monetary assistance.
The question of local relief to
others than war dependents, was
also discussed and although there
have been no such cases reported
to the civic authorities, it was fehe
concensus of opinion, that if any
such cases existed, they would
apply to either Mayor McLaine or
myself, and that means would be
provided in a quiet and unostentatious manner to relieve such distress.
Fellow citizens, we are not all
fitted for military service, but
whether this be our native or
adopted country, the present is
an opportunity for us to show our
loyalty and patriotism in a practical manner.
Let us so act that is future years
it may be our proud boast that not
a single dependent of our soldiers
suffered a moment's want or dis-
! comfort, whilst fehe brave fellows
J were on active service, fighting fehe
I battles of our common country.

The Belgian government has

Russia, says the London Times,
is the '.'last home oMiberfey of the
press." This must be a little of
pleasantry on the part of the Times.
They may be discussing the war
more fully in Russia than in Great
Britain, but it's dollar's to doughnuts that the liberty consists of reporting successes and eulogising
the powers of the Russian army.
There_i8_ noJiberty of_ the press in

There may be no such thing as

A British official report says thafe

When Britain has crushed German militarism, Canada will enter

Peter Porter of Niagara Falls
was travelling through Europe in
the year eighteen hundred and

'Tn a'compartment, car Mr. Porter met a certain English globetrotter, who was boasting of the
wonders of the world, and he
named over some of the great physical maivels of Nature that he had
visited.
Porter was tired and not much
inclined to conversation, when finally the Englishman said, "Why
come' to think of it. you have
quite a wonder of your own there
in'America -that place they ca
Niagara Falls."
Porter yawned, looked out of the
window and Baid: "Yes, Niagara
Falls, sure, ite quite a place. I
ojvi-j the Falls."
And, the strange part was that
hVtqld the truth. At least he
ownedone-half of Niagara Falls,
and Canada owned the other half.
