IN THE SOUTH
At San Diego there are about
40,000 men in the United States
army and navy- While in uniform
none of these can go into a saloon,
and an}T person who sells or gives
them liqnor is liable to six months
in jail. The saloons are not allowed to sell liquor by the bottle after
6 p.m. This has put a crimp in
fehe bootlegger's business.
About 10,000 soldiers and sailors ppend Saturday nights in San
Diego, and many of thein find it
imposstble to obtain abed. .One
soldier, after trying to get a room
at 41 hotels without success applied
to the city jail for a place to eleep.
He was not permitted to stop
there, unless he could get himself
arrested.
After being dry for months it
rained on Washington's birthday,
and postponed the big review at
Camp Kearney.   ..........
Fresh eggs are 46 cents a dozen,
milk 14 cents a quart, and: batter
60 cents a pound. The Irish
potatoes sold in this city are tbe

Last Friday evening at the loca'
rink the Ladies Hockey team
played against the pick of tbe
Cigar and C. P. R. teams. This
was an exhibition game and the
both teams put up a strenons fight.
The picked team had the edge at
the start and they were not long
in getting a goal. The puck was
shot out in front of the Ladies
net and Hank Leonard who was
there made a counter for his team
and tbe only one they got dnring
tbe game. After this the Ladies
got busy and was not long before
Edith Willcox scored for them and
at the end of the first period the
score was a tie.
In the second period tbe Ladies
had the better of the play, they
ontskated their opponents and had
very effective combination which
in this frame they went in tbe
lead' when Ethel Ferguson shot
the pack passed John Cropley for
their second tally.
The third period the Men tried
to even up the score but their
efforts were without avail, for the
Ladies showed them that they
were not in their class, when Ethel
Ferguson beat John Cropley again
for the third and last goal. The
match ended 3-1 in favour of the
Ladies.
This was a most interesting
game to watch and nothing pleased
the crowd more than to see the
Men go down. This came often
for some of them were fond of
falling over the Ladies sticks.
Hugh Nelson, the referee, handled
the game to the satisfaction of all,
and bad to penalize B. W. Halcrow,
BS. J. Mair and others for minor
offenses.
Here is the line-up:
Ladies, Goal, E. Murray; point,

Square Cans
At the recent conven tion of can-
ners, in Boston, the question was
raised why fruit and vegetables
were not packed in square cans instead of round ones. Particularly
in sending supplies to tbe United
Statee troops tn Europe, the square
cans would mean a great saving of
space, as well as of tin. One can-
ner advances the following figures
to show the possible saving if
square gallon cans were used instead of round quart cans, taking
a case of tomatoes (containing six
gallons) as bis unit: Using quart
cans, 24 would, be needed, taking
eight sheets of tin measuring 14 x
20 inches, or2240 square inches of
tin in all. Using gallon cans, 10
inches high and five inches square,
seven and one-half sheets of tin
measuring 10 by 20 inches would
be required, or 1500 square inches
of tin, a saving of 740 square inches
of tin. Witb the cases there wonld
be a saving, he shows, of 64S
cubic inches of space, as well as
the value of the lumber.���Christian

THE CAUSE OF BACKACHE
Every muscle in the Lody needs
constantly a supply of rich, red
hlooj in proportion to the work it
does. The muscles of thc back are
under a heavy strain and havc but
little rest. When thc blood is thin
they t.ick nourishment, and the result is a sensation ol pain in those
muscles. Sonic people think pain
in the back means kidney trouble,
but thc best medical authorities
agree that backache seldom or never
hits anything to do with the kidneys.

of speed. Each raider carries a drum
with between thirty and fifty miles
of insulated, single core cable, whieh
is paid out iu the wake of thc vessel and through which the mechanism is controlled from shore. The
fore part carries a considerable
charge of high ex-plosive, probably
300 to 500 pounds, which is arranged   to explode on  impact.
The method of operating thc crew-.

after which the men leave thc boat.

fighting patrol, then accompanies the
vessel at a distance of from three to
iivc miles and signals to the shore
operator of the helm. These signals
need onlv be "starboard," "port" or
"steady."'
By an obviously clever 4 grouping
of the wireless idea, the high speed
gasoline craft, and the electrically
controlled plan, the Germans have
made usc of the crcwless raider
scheme in a Twentieth Century way.
They havc not overcome the disadvantages of a trailing cable, to he
sure; but they have overcome the
problem of visibility, for the aerial
observer in thc seaplane which convoys thc raider is al all times within visual distance. Since power to
drive the craft is entirely self-contained and need not be transmitted
through thc cable, the Germans have
been ;ibie to usc a much smaller
cable and thus overcome the.
cnlties in this direction. It is evident that they use a one wire cable,

return current to complete tlie circuit. -

V. S. In For a Big Job
The Situation as Viewed by an Ex-
President
What the allies need is atiotlitr
great army which shall leave no
doubt as to the preponderance. What
IZngland has done wc can do and
should do. What will determine the
battle in the end is man power. An
American army of 2,000,000 is not
enough to make the result certain,
England is now "losing men at the
rate of 100,000 a month. We should
now plan for au army oi 5,000,000.
England has done nearly this with
fewer men and less resources. England's interest in this war is no
greater than ours. England, France,
and the United States, with their
forces thus augmented, can drive thc
Germans back and win victories
which will destroy thc power of the
present German dynasty over its
people.
What we must plan for is to beat
Germany on the western front. The
release by Russia of German divisions will give to the Germans for
the time being:, greater offensive
power, but some of this lias already
been consumed. The Germans are
suffering great losses on both fronts
and in spite of English losses the
mere process of attrition -which
Grant used in defeating Lee is working against Germany. With the addition of an army of 5,000,000 Americans,, with the control of the seas,
with the drawing of the fangs of thc
the submarine monster we can end
German domination. But we~*hould
not minimize the job. Wc should
not lengthen it by an effort narrow
and contracted which may fail, and
failing', call for a'greater effort. We
should make thc greater effort now.���

The Wonders of the Air
Aeropbne Has Made Enormous Progress Since the War Began
When experts in aircraft like Lord
Montagu of Beanlieu and Mr. Graham-White speculate on air service
of the future which will traverse continents and oceans . they are sometimes thought to be-giving a too
generous play to their imaginations.
But the admiralty story of a Hand-
ley-Page machine which flew _ 2,000
miles from England to a Mediterranean base in eight flights amounting
to thirty-one hours shows how near
we actually are io a future in which
the globe will be covered with a
great network oi air routes���arranged perhaps, as in Lord Montagu's
fascinating theory, one above another, according' to the nature of the
traffic. . What wc tend to forget is
that thc aeroplane has made, enormous progress since the war began, but

i'ight of Canadians
Philip Gibbs Telh   of   Great   Fight
Under Winnipeg General
The following account of the taking of Passchendacle by a Canadian
brigade, written by Philip Gibbs, thc
noted war correspondent, is of special interest to westerners. The commander of the brigade referred to is
Brig.-Gen. H.D.B. Ketchen, formerly of Winnipeg. This was the attack also in which Lieut.-Col. Gras-
sie and other Winnipeg and western
officers took such an important part.
Gibbs' report, written at the war
correspondents' headquarters, is as
follows:
"1 had the pleasure of meeting yesterday the Canadian general and his
staff, who, when the history of this
war is told in detail, and as long as
it is remembered, will be famous as
the commander of the troops who
captured Passchendaele. I saw him
before he went up to the attack and
he was wonderfully confident, though
he knew all the difficulties of the
ground and conditions. He was confident of his men, and because of
that he said then, 'We shall get it.'
Yesterday, when I met him, h�� looked up and smiled and said, "Well, wc
have got it." Then he spoke of his
men again and said how splendid
they had been. There were no shrink-
ers or serimshankers among them.
Every man had gone forward gallantly, fired by a most grim resolution to take that crest at all - costs.
There had been desperately anxious
hours for the general and his little
staff, all crowded into a small shelter, with a great fire outside. It
was not for themselves they were
anxious, but for the men. The assembly was difficult and dangerous,
and the enemy was searching the
ground with  his shells. But by mid-
A Time for Steadiness
the
Britain and France Must Hold
Gap Against the Enemy
The London Times, discussing the
military situation on the western
front, says the next few weeks are
likely to be the worst of the war.
Russia has gone out, and America is'
not yet' well in. Britain and France
must hold the gap meanwhile against
the enemy. From all quarters come
indications that the Times does not
overstate the case. Despatches from
Holland tell of the concentration of
hundreds of thousands of German
troops-in Brabant and northern Flanders. The French intelligence department has been reporting of late
an increase in the enemy strength in
Lorraine and the Champagne. The
Austrians in the Trentino, who are
striving mightily, despite great losses, to make their way down into
the Italian plain in the rear of Italy's
army of "Vcuetia, receive constantly
accession* to their already great artillery strength. .
The men and the munitions now
being assembled for thc forthcoming
great offensive on thc western front
are coming in part from the cast,
where the enemy's forces can be reduced with safety to a minimum because the Russians are at death grips
among themselves, and arc in no
condition to face the externa] enemies. But Germany is not depending
entirely upon her reinforcements
from thc cast for the new armies
now being created. The calling out
and training of boys of seventeen
proves that she is prepared to take
desperate measures to reach a decision before the weight of thc United
States can be felt on the western
front. It is reasonably certain that
all of the 1939 class���that is, thc
hundreds of thousands of young Germans and Austrians who will bc
twenty years of age some time during the year 1919���will bc used at the
front during the coming spring and
summer. A number of these 1919
men were captured during the recent British drive in Flanders. A
few of them were made prisoners by
the Canadians at thc battle of Lens.
Thc French also have already captured some. These young prisoners
were the picked men of their class,
well developed of body, and probably
more mature mentally.than the average lad of about eighteen. The
hundreds of thousands who arc now
being sent to the front, and who will
be thrown into the   .struggle    when
the enemy's attack is launched, will
not be the equal cither in training or
night, before    the attack,    the   men' in physique    of   ; the    British     and
the    enemy's  French troops,  who.
were   in    position    and
barrage was falling behind them for
the most part.
"It was very dark when they went
away, but from the headquarters they
could be seen later crossing the crest
���fittle blurred figures among the
shell craters, like ants on an upturned heap���and those watching
them knew then that all was well,
?md that Passchendaele was taken.
Fo/ six days and nights there was
only a snatch of sleep for the staff,
and it was lack of sleep that wore
them most, and not the shell fire that
always menaced them. One of the
staff officers who has been long in
this war and in many battles had to
write his orders on a duckboard in
thc open, all wet and cold and cramped and sometimes the desire to sleep
was a great poignant agony to him,
but he had to keep awake because
men's lives depended on his vigilance.
So it was with the, general, but yesterday, when I saw him, his eyes
were bright,  and  there was no sign
will confront
them. Berlin's hope of success must
be founded on numbers rather than
quality.
The allied armies on the^ western
front may be forced to remain on the
defensive for a time, but there is little danger that the enemy will be
able to break through. If Germany
in 1914 and 1915, with thc best of
her men still in the field and with
a tremendous preponderance of artillery, could not penetrate the defensive lines of the allies on the western front, there is little danger of
her doing so today with armies of
which lads of eighteen and nineteen
form a large part, and with artillery
that���except in long-range, high-velocity weapons���is distinctly inferior,
alike in number of guns and the
marksmanship of the gunners, to the
artillery of the allies. There is need
for thc putting forth of every possible effort to meet the anticipated
German attempt to . administer a
knock-out blow before    the    United

Moving American Troops
Work Is a   Triumph   of   Oversea
Transportation
When all the facts of the traus-j
portation to France of American sol-j
diers in thc lirst seven months of tlu
war with Germany are published, i^
will bc seen that a record in moving
troops overseas has been made, re^
marks the Ncw York Times. GreaH
Britain landed in France in thre<
years a prodigious army, probablj
2,000,000 men, but the channel course
had been protected by an intricate
system of steel netting that was impervious to torpedo attack. ', At th��
same time, it should be considered
that if the British navy had failed tc
retain command of the sea by vigi-]
lant patrols and readiness, day ant
night, to light a decisive engagement]
with the German fleet���the German*
have confessed defeat in the batth
of Jutland by hugging their base
there would be no great British armj
on the western front today. As al
triumph of organization and the fric-j
tionlcss movement of troops, th<
achievement commands admiration-
in fact, a precedent was established-
but, mastery 6i the sea assured, tht
ferrying of the army across the chanJ
ncl did not present a delicate proW
lem. Not a transport was lost.- EvH
everything was done with the preci^
sion of clockwork.
In the Boer war an army of 200.00C
officers and men was despatched   toj
Cape Town  in   the  period  of     twe
years, but the seas were safe.   There
was nothing to fear but the elements,!
and they were almost uniformly kind.]
Coming to our    own   transportation!
problem���we have sent to France^ iir
quick  succession  division  after divK
sion of regulars and    the    National
Guard���it is to be noted, first,   that!
German  submarines were    swarming!
in the eastern Atlantic and were capJ
able of roaming, practically at    vvillj
in any part  of the    Atlantic;     audi
again, that a considerable part of thej
Ainerican navy had been diverted tc
British waters to co-operate withth
British patrol.   Moreover, the "Unitcc
States suffered from a deficiency   oi
shipping for transportation purposcsJ
Ships had to .be borrowed and    re-1
quisitioned, and it was necessary   tc
reconstruct and refit  seised     enemjl
ships.    From any point of view the|
undertaking to    convey    any     large
number of troops to European shores}
bristled with difficulties.
Nevertheless, ours is a triumph, tc
be proud of.    Transport after trans^
port, loaded with -soldiers, has mov-1
ed out from the Atlantic    seaboard,]
often in the broad light of day, and.j
convoyed by available warships, ha��
run the  gauntlet    and      landed_   itsj
troops without  the loss of  a  single]
man.   The number is known approx-1
imately, but cannot be published.    Itl
is sufficient to know that in    Francef
today we  have  probably  tbe largest]
American force ever assembled.^ ant'

as foreseeing and describing these

(dated 1596) which he calls his "secret inventions," he describes four

their existence in his fertile imagination to the rumors of war current at

The Urgent Necessity for  Increased
Production During the Coming
Season
Practical fanners know more than
most classes of workers the necessity for planning well ahead. Success in the fields no less than in the
field may depend ou taking "the long
view." Canadian farmers, therefore,
more than anyone else may profit by-
weighing earnestly the words of an
English economist that, even if war
were to cease tomorrow, normal crop
conditions could not bc restored    in
years:Til SorS?S sippife. of foS i �� strengthening delicate throats and weak lungs while its
have been heavily drawn upon and in
sonic cases have been actually exhausted. This means, as no one better than the farmer will comprehend,
that there will be an acute demand
as compared with pre-war years, for
food grain crops and food animals.
Should warfare be suspended, of
which there is no sign at present, the
demobilization would take months
and in the reconstruction period the
re-stocking of farms in Belgium,
France, Italy and Great Britain must
inevitably bc done  from this side of
jihe Atlantic.
I    Only by  the "long  view"   can th.i
[Canadian farmer prepare for this.   It
jis in this season of comparative ijuiet-
uess  in  farm life that hc will    havc
Imost time to think out thc means at

!is both good business and good patriotism in thc advice of the food controller and of thc department of agriculture to produce more pork; hc

Owing to lack of fertilizers , so
necessary for the intensive systems

thc consequent impoverishment of

available to carry fertilizing supplies
and labor is extremely scarce, so
that the diminution of the crops for

give the Canadian farmer matter for

meet the shortage overseas and to
derive a legitimate benefit froui his

The following article by Chauncey
Dcpew is particularly applicable in
view of the kaiser's speeches the past
few days:
"Thc God of battles:is appealed to
daily by thc contending hosts, but
there are two Gods. The poet Hein-

eighty years ago, said that Germany

for wheat.

Germany's Designs
Upon Belgium
Here's a Nice    Little    Excuse    For
Hanging on to the Plunder
In a resolution most recently
adopted by the pan-Germanic league
of k'sscti and thc text of which has
been transmitted to Marshal Hinden-
burg mid to Admirals Tirpitz and
Sehccr, it is stated:
"The inhabitants of the western
provinces of thc German country declare that they would be irremediably
lost if, Belgium having withdrawn
from German influence, Germany
should happen to bc defeated in a
future war. Thc enemy could quickly
seize upon all thc big manufactories,
arsenals of fighting armies and impose upon us a dishonorable peace."
Thc resolution closes by this assertion that thc league intends to struggle "in order that British arrogance
and our foe's claims may not prevail
and rob from us, in the couse of the
diplomatic negotiations, thc territory
which we must not, under any pretence whatsoever, give np to them,
the Flanders."
th_at there claim in ;t week for three
million.   Cool, wasn't  it?"
"This story invariably 'goes.' And
more. It starts the ball of conversation boniiding_ merrily around thc
room. It alio inspires competition,
and soon there is a score of stories
for a score of different settings, spinning their noisy way from one comfortable chair to another. From the
coal miuesof Ncw Brunswick, or the
fisheries of Nova Scotia they ccmic;
from tho frigid trapping lands of Labrador; from the Chinatown of Vancouver to th.e 'Ward' of Toronto;
from office, ranch and plain.
"And upstairs ;the bed-making is
going on.:.���'Reminiscences here, too.

the du-ii box one day whose face
seemed familiar. She spoke. They
had attended Havcrgal college together in Toronto, and had not seen
each other since their graduation
day, lo years ago.
"Several such scenes have taken
place in the club. And several romances, for years hidden--under a
cloud of misunderstanding, have been
shown the light and gone joyfully on
their way. War indeed works strange
miracles. It's a bromide, but it's
true."

Tried toStart U.S.-JapFight
German  Plot in  Early  Part   of  the
War Is Unearthed
That desperate efforts wdv made
by the German ambassador and military and naval officers in the United
States to stir up enmity between the
United States and Japan in thc early
days of the European Avar while the
United States was still a neutral has
been revealed by thc diary of Captain Karl- Grasshof, commander of
the gunboat Geier, which hitcrncd at
Honolulu in Novcnjl er. 1914. to ��ave
herself from destruction by a Japanese cruiser, the Hizen, which waited
beyond the three-mile limit for her
to show her nose outside thc harbor.
The diary is in the possession of the
naval intelligence bureau of the Hawaiian naval division and was made
public on authority from the intelligence bureau.
In line with the recent exposures
of Secretary Lansing, it reveals a
world-wide conspiracy and intrigue
in the interests of Germany extending from Ambassador Benistorff's
office at Washington through San
Francisco to Shanghai, Hong Kong
and Manilla, and centering in Honolulu upon the Geier, which with her.
wireless intercepted official American government wireless messages
and relayed messages and orders
from the German officials to "heir
destination.
The diary, written in German, was
found, ou Captain Grasshof following his imprisonment at Schoiicld
Barracks after the attempted destruction of the German warship
and German mer'nantmen then interned at Honolulu. The attempted
destruction took place when the
I'nitcd States broke ofi: diplomatic
relations with Germany.
With the translation a��,- a chic,
navy intelligence officers have been
linking up the tangled ikein of evidence for the last six months, and
nOw they have'a-complete indictment of the interned Germans for
their part in thc conspiracy, involving the wholesale violations of alS
the laws of hospitality, of actions,
and^ men and the .precepts... oi neutrality, the crimes covering a period
from November, 1914, to February,
1917.   . '   .

jath of Premier Brewster
' The untimely death of Hon.
.Jarlan Carey Brewster afc Calgary
.111 .Friday last, has removed a
prominent figure from the Government of this province. His loss
will be deeply regretted by all in
thiB province and throughout the
Dominion as he was a man who as
premier had the confidence of the
people and had tried to do his
���utmost for the welfare of this province.
The sympathy of all will go out
to his family in their sad bereavement.
During the next four or five
months food conservation on this
continent and among their own
people must be almost the sole
hope of the Allied nations in
Europe ancl of friendiy neutrals.
No effort that can be made by the
people of North America can add
any considerable amount of food
to the available supplies before
next fall. Stocks are dangerously
depleted, particularly in the case
of cereals and meats. The problem
is to "stretch", these supplies over
the interval until this year's crop
13 harvested. While preparing for
increased production, we must
also do our utmost to help our
Allies oyer the next few months
when starvation will be threaten
ing them dangerously.     .
Official information, much of it
confidential, received during the
past few. days emphasises the scarcity, of supplies. of: cereals and
.oeats and the necessity of avoid-
;ug at all costs encroachment upon
.!.;e supplies for the Armies.. In
."��� ii-'eaf Britain, in France, in Italy,
ie people are alive to the situation. They know something of
what tbe next few months will
���mean. There spirit was expressed
'iy Lord Charles Bereeford the
other day when ho said "We are
lightening pur belts and we are
. 'oing to win."
A recent cable from London
stated that the present meat ration
in Great Britain is not more, than
one-half of the amount to which
the people have been a,ceustomed,
Accompanied as this is by the restrictions on the consumption of
bread it cannot but entail physical
losa and privation. Canadians too
must tighten their belts and help
the Allies to win. Use should be
made on this continent of every
available substitute for wheat,
beef and pork. "Upon our food
service depends the veiy lives of
women and children, in the Allied
countries.   .....

A very depressing event took
place at Boundary Falls on Tues
(lay, February 2Gbh, when the
C. P. R. passenger train was
stopped by a group of bacheloi
miners, to allow Miss Mai tba
Jones to get aboard. Mi?-s Junes,
who has been living with Mr. and
MrB. J. C. Cruso for tbe last four
years, has left for au extended
visit at tbe coast. Notable among
thosewho took a fatherly interest
iu her, were Malcolm Buchannen,
presenting Mies Martha with a gold
watch aud chain, and B. F. Jones
"who was greatly affected" handed her a five dollar pnrsi>. It was
indeed a melancholy bunch of
young men that wended their way
home, wondering where they would
prospect next.���Com.

"When I must be out of town," said a seasoned traveller,
"there's nothing so helpful in keeping me at liigli working
pitch as the feeling that home is no further distant than the
nearest telephone. I do like to get the daily "all's well," from
home. And weighed against the comfort and help it gives nie^
the small sum oi loll charge does not count at all."
The telephone highway is always the shortest way home.

Over The Top
99
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams, Its lofty sky/scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth^gold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek. Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP," for lack of
cultivation, Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world* The scenery is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy,
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and ^et it has a scant 400,000* Then
sings the little bird in the tree, "What's The
Matter With B, G"
Nothing, except that it is like many a
business man. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B. G., the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada's provincial diamonds. Get a move
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the millions
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up. If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
and get your job printing at the same office.
