until t e applicant appeared before the
Board in person and complied with the
regulations governing such an upplica
tion.
During the hearing of the applications
for the renewal of the hotel licenses it
was stated"that the proprietors felt the
present license fee of $500 should be'
l educed, owing to existing conditions. |
On Leing informed that any reduction
could only be made by the City Council

'•I beg to inform you that you hav?
been misinformed as to our converting
any additional locomotives into oil
humeri" wrote Mr. F. W. Peters, of
the C. P. R. in reply to a communication from the City Council. The
letter was introduced at the Monday
evening session of the Council. "Such
is not the case" the writer proceeded
"Owing to our turning over some
Engines to the K. V. R. which of
course have to be coal burners, it has
neccesitated the running of extra oil
burners east from North Bend, lul
as, staled we have not converted any
additional engines to oil burners."'
Mayor Waiters said the remarks of
Mr. Peters were different to what hp
had been led to believe were, the facts.
On high authority he had been informed
that the C P. R. were burning less coal
and that eight coal burning engihea' had
been sent elsewhere to'be1 converted
into oil burners.^ There had been a big
decreased demand for local cpal by the
company and he was afiaid when Vancouver winter trade orders had bean
filled the situation would be'serious for
the local mines.

reference was, on the motion of Aids..'

Great  Address :   The Nicola Valley News. P. O. Drawer *L,'Merritt, B.C.  stood in the  TWO HUNDRED MIL^S".!!1  According to the " Chinook," whose representative  crowd at the door along with Mayor Walters', of Merritt who is'the  Liberal candidate in Yale riding," the leading local h_^ral was" ah interested spectator of the Lucas libel suit. Unable to find anything substantially remiss in the political record of Mr. Lucas in Yale his opponent obviously travelled the two hundred miles to .Vancouver mZsearch  of any political crumbs for capital that might fall froin the lawyers  table. The only crumb be discovered to satisfy his aching soul was the  stinging, dramatic and final description of Moses Cotsworth at the close  of the  case.  To the denunciation the valued " Sun'' refers but/is afraid  to report. In words more harsh Justice Morrison classed the author  of the pamphlet as more than "an ordinary untruthful man," and,as a  result of the finding Mr. Walters had the mortification of seeing Mr.  Lucas being awarded a judgment for $200.00���money which he did  not seek. <  ������I      -i ��� ��� ���   ���   ���  Little wonder our Mayor is wearing a. careworn 'app^r^nce^mce^lus  return.

The item of $86.44 in the list  of disbursements, for linen, wool  and other materials, in itself  points to the great sacrifice of  time and' energy of the members  expanded in making and preparing- supplies for use in the hospitals at the front and the bases.

If there is anything  to wonder at about It, it is that he  wasn't given his golden spurs before.'  When Sir Sam- Hughes- addressed  the Canadian Club of Ottawa a week  or so ago, and gave them a sketch of  the'work done by the Militia Department of Canada ih the war, and by  the Canadian troops at the front, he  gave much credit to others and. took  little for. himself. But.. everybody  knew whose work it was, just as King  Gedrge did when he ��� said "Arise. Sir  Sam" or words to that effect.  Still Looks Ahead/  ��� Everybody knows it. Even the enemies of the Minister of Militia���-and  he has them���admit that to his tireless  energy, his unremitting labor'and his.  extraordinary foresight, the remarkable military achievement of Canada  is largely due. He has worked night  and-day; he: has made other people  work night ahd day. He is charged with  having made mistakes, which charge-is  proof of his industry, because the only  man who never makes mistakes is the  man who never does anything <at -all,  But the mistakes, if mistakes they,  were, have little weight .when rneas*  ured against the tremendous ��� success  which has' crowned his work ln the  main object for which he has striven;  Not that he has finished, either. He  is still working day and night, still  planning, organizing and arranging,  still-looking ahead and preparing for  .what is yet to come.  ,  A Peculiar Fitness *  -  It is of course perfectly true that  the thousands;of Canadians who;have  enlisted' for   overseas   Bervice,  have  done so of their own free will, and. of  their, own desire, and determination; to  fight for the   safety   of   the Empire  against the onrush of the Hun, but  it is equally true that they got their  opportunity   from   Sir   Sam   Hughes.'  The Prime Minister's offer of a Cana*  dian force, and the readiness of Cana-  dians to enrol themselves in that force',  could not have been given  effective  expression without the .practical,ability of the Minister of Militia to set  things in motion and keep them going,  Another man in the offlce of Minister  of Militia would have done some' of it,  but   not   all,   nor   nearly all.    Sam  Hughes .had advantages \yhich.fitted  him peculiarly for the quick perform,  ance of the task-entrusted to him. He  is a born soldier.   He is familiar with  the book.   He has seen active service,  He has  travelled   over  most  of the  ground.in northern   France   and Belgium, where the western fighting has  been done.    He knew the sort of a  country It, was, what sort of .soldiers  the Germans were, and what sort of  soldiers the French were,.: He knew  the British   Tommy  and -the British  generals, kne^y the  members of the  British Government, or most of-them,  and what manner of men they, were,  He knew his own country like a book  and lie knew-his   own   countrymen'  from one ocean to the other, ,Jn other  words he knew tbe players 'and all  -i-......-* .l~     _-���..        n...u     4UA.*/.   (-V.W.**  , days of the conflict, and the days, a,  Valcartier. War��was -declared on August: 4th. On the morning of the 8th  Valcartier was ready for occupation.  Some thought that discipline would  not be secured. Discipline, said the  Hon. Minister of Militia, according to  his views, did not mean, nor ever  would mean; repression. By discipline  he meant culture, polish and self-control, and no finer example of this sort  of discipline had been afforded than  the behavior of the rough and ready  soldiers of Canada in the historic battle of St. Julien. They had held themselves against the most disciplined  soldiers In the world.  The Battle of St. Julien '  The Minister gave the Club a detailed explanation of the Canadian  position at St. Julien, a: description  which is well worth. repeating. The  Turcos were on the Canadians' left.  ItVwasthe first time In civilized warfare, ln any kind of warfare, that an  enemy had resorted to gas," and the  Turcos, totally unaccustomed to gas,  as indeed were the Canadians, but  lacking the Canadian resourcefulness,  fell back. This left a gap of 7,000 or  8,000 yards in the line.. The Canadians', left was standing out in the air.  For five days and five nights, the Canadians, ably assisted by their British  comrades'later, held the front against  five and ten times their numbers who  had' the best long range' artillery in  the world. Yet. with all that the Germans only succeeded: in retiring the  Canadian line one mile and an eighth.;  "Sir Sam announced that/whenever  the call came for larger forces, steps  would be taken.to provide for a force  tip. to whatever number was required.  Canada, he believed,- would not fail  inj her duty when the time. came for  the overseas army ' to be increased.  There had .been ho. failure in.; the past.  On the contrary, when the flrst call  went forth for 20,000 they got*33.000;  whten they>'asked, for 50,000 they secured 75,000, and since authority had  been given to recruit'150,000 they bad  over that number.  A Fight to a Finish  Canada, declared Sir Sam,' would  never be'eontent with less thana light  to,a finish. "The, peace-loving .nations  6f;'the world have;, long enough'.been  t'errified'bythe clahgingof the) sabres  of ,��� the Hohenzollern family.,. Tht day  has arrived in human progress and  civilization, when .the thing will not  be,. ;tolerated any longer. I express  the sentiments of every man and  every woman . (God bless, them) in  Cana.da when I say , that if ��� it takes  two, the number already at the front,'  four'or forty divisions, Canada demands, the war shall be fought to a  finish 'and until the' German ruler-is  humiliated/and the German - fleet mo  lopger/a-.menace to Great Britain."  On tire" same day that he addressed  the-Canadian Club, Sir. Sam spoke to  the. ��convention of. the Ontario  W,C,-r.UT,,when he "said" that L"we will  never "allow liquor Ain any of our  camps. ...have absolutely no use for  the-'man either ^n uniform or-out of  unlfo'nri' who Is' a drinker. We' are  carrying out practical temperance  ideas, and .one of the reasons why I  am1 determined' to maintain the dry  canteen-in our military camps is be.  cause it hag been demonstrated to my  satisfaction that the man who does not  drl*k is, as far as endurance is concerned, far better than ;the; man who  indulges in intoxicants."  He Banished Liquor  Sir Sam, as everybody -knows, is a  champion of the dry canteen. He  banished the wet canteen from the  military camps in Canad", but he  made tha regulation applicable to all  ranks.

He said that  Canadian manufacturers had risen  nobly to tbe occasion ln the manufacture of munitions Soon after-the-war  began,' the British Government asked  him if he could secure 200,000 shells  in the United States, and although the  order   was' somewhat   small   he. had  of ,his dry canteen regulation.

Small Docket at Coanty Court  (Continued fr��m Pago One )  Evidence of indebtedness and  alleged misuse of privileges of  credit granted at local stores and  details of a private assignment  of certain mouies received-as  wages were given and searching-  ly enquired into by the judge  and council.  After a mass of evidence had  been heard from an abundance  of witnesses the case resolved  itself into a legal fight, Lawyer  Murphy arguing that the circumstances of the apprehension were  trivial, t'*at the merchants had  acted harshly and cruelly, and  that the merchants affected had  no right to have a man brought  back to the City for the purpose  of forcing him to pay his debts.  The accused too had only exempted property said his Attorney. That which he was taking  away being pf such insignificant  value that it would have been "a  mere nothing" if taken in discharge, of tradesmens debts. Mr.  Murphy also referred to the  freedom with which persons ��� of  greater prominence oftentimes  very more heavily involved went  away from the City without dishonest intentions. If a person  lost his work in a place and there  was no other work suited to his  capabilities there it was natural  for him to go to a place where " "Anthony Jacques left  he had the prospect of employ- -"-"day *?* Alberta.  ment, and after one experience  with an angry creditor it was  only likely toothathewoul'dwish  to leave as quietly as possible to  save further trouble.    -��  -  William Schmock was awarded  judgment in a .claim by J., A.

Grimmett for  claimant  Judge Swanson deferred the  granting of a cirtificate of naturalization in the application of  Albert Aanof Crows Nest Pass,  who did not appear in p'erson.

Maughan protested against  the granting of the naturalization  certificate on the ground that  Aan had been reporting to the  Chief of Police as an alien enemy,  Solicitor Maughan contending  that he was a half breed German  ���Austrian.,  Much amusing* evidence was  given in the City Police Court on  Thursday afternoon when Joseph  Small was fined $15.00 and costs  for agsualting Wm. D. Barber  near his home on November 30.  The case was an echo of pro-,  ceedihgs completed the7 day before in the County Court.. Defendant pleaded not.guilty.- The  complaihtant told how he was  approached, by defendant who  was pressing' for-the payment  of a debt of $25.00 because he  thought He, Barber, was about  to leave the. City. In the assault,  said'Barber ;"u_r. Small -said; 1  take the lawinto my own hands"  He struck him about the neck  and shoulders and on three occasions he' fell to the Aground; The  third time I fell-five'feet and he,  then asked "Have you any money?" He then'told' how he gave  him twelve dollars and they went  to the house when Small took a  couple of chairs, boiler and rug  satisfaction of the balance of the  debt.  Defendant wanted to know  from complaintant why he did  not charge him at the time if he  was guilty of assault. Stretching  his heavy muscular form to its  full height he surprised the court  by saying he was l-preserving'  himself from any attack from  Barber. He onjy pushed. Barber  when his feet went'up in the'air,  and he was laughing on, "the  ground."  Magistrate Morgan seemed  surprised that a man who was  reclining on his shouldiers on the  ground with hisfeet towards the  snow laden clouds should be  Uughing,     ,  Mr. Smallin his evidence pro-  par endeavored to,prove that he  pushed rather than struck' complaintant.-;      ,.
