'Matron was empowered to grant holidays of two weeks each on pay to all  members of the staff, the dates to be  decided so as not to interfere with the  routine of the institution.  Resolved-to ask the solicitor to send  in a report on the position of outstanding accounts in his hands for collection  by the Wednesday immediately i rece;  ding each regular monthly meeting.  To ensure that milk-', purchases 'shall  be evenly divided between the two  dealers and to avoid complaints-recurring that more milk" is being bought  from one than the other, as voiced by  Director Taylor, it was left to the matron to adjust the matter.  It was left to the finance committee  to decide on the repayment to the bank  ofi the $800 temporary loan obtained in  anticipation, of government grant in  aid.

Acting on a recommendation by Dr.  Gillis, it was resolved that in regard to  contract cases the arrangement in future shall be that the doctors shall have  the free use of the X-rays machine bul  shall furnish their own tubes and plates  and do their own developing.  Contract rates and privileges wer*  granted the Donohoe Mining Corporation, subject to their compliance, with  the usual provisions covering such contracts.  Sharp passages resulted during the  consideration of certain accounts which  the finance committee, could not pass  because the house committee would not  o.k. thsm; The bills represented some  eighty dollars for surgical instruments  and hospital supplies. It was stated  that Chairman Rankine of the House  committee was refusing to' act, foi  reasons not stated,and Director.Taylor,  another/ member of the committee,  warmly.refused to put his name' to bilk  for supplies he knew nothing whatevei  about, asserting too that no meeting of  the House committee had been held in  the hospital since he joined the board.  The matron, he said, had nothing to do  with the matter, as if she required supplies she recommended same to the  House committee, -  The president said in- an -emergency  he authorized the purchasing of an X-  ray tube which cost $30.  Director Bond felt if one man was  gong to block the work .of two committees he had only one course to take.  The president having interposed to ask  Mr. Bond why be should be expected to  '���Jack him up," Director Bond replied  that the president had chosen the chairman of the hguse ^committee for the  position he now refused to fill.  Another   warm   interlude  occurred  when the president denied that he asked  Director  McLean  to  act as chairman  pro tern, although Directors Bond and  Taylor were repeatedly reiterating that  Director McLean stated, the opposite to  trjepa.   The nqqtroij reported that some  items, jp the. batch of accounts had been  o.k.'d, before purchasing, by Mr.' Rankine only.     Some members firmly refused to take any ac'tion on the accounts  alleging that board resolutions were being disregarded.   The accounts were  accordingly ordered back tq the house  committee.  Present *' tfl�� meeting were President Strickland, Directors Bond, Slater,  Tutill, Collett/ and Taylor, Matron L.  J. Fish, and Secretary Carrington.  Drastic Resolutions to Arouse  People's Responsibilities  to Canadian Patriotic Fund  Movad by V. H. Harbord, seconded by W. N. Rolfe, that  "This committee cause a list to be made, entitled the "' Traitors  List," in which shall be kept the names of those who have failed  in this our trying hour of need to support the cause of the Allies in  some form or other, or who, without just cause or excuse, having  promised to contribute to the funds of the. Nicola Valley Branch of  the Canadian Patriotic Fund, fail to do so. The said list to be published at the conclusion of the v^ar, and such steps taken as shall-  fully and adequately punish such persons for their selfish and criminal neglect of duty and patriotism."  ��� ~ ' ���   - '-���  Moved by A. E. Howse, S3Conded by J. S. Morgan, that v '  " We open or establish a list to be called a "BoycottList " ; that  the name of any person or firm doing business in the Nicola Valley  and is not contributing to the Patriotic Fund shall be placed on said  list, and that before the first day of August, 1916. all persons receiving funds through the Nicola Valley branch of cthe" Canadian  Patriotic fund, shall be notified by the Secretary of the "fund ai  Merritt that it is the wish of the committee that they discontinue  any business relations with these persons or firms, until they have'  contributed adequately to the "said fund, and that all patriotic residents be urged to do the same."  Proposed by A. E. Howse and A. N. B. Rogers, that  "A letter be sent to Alex. Lucas, ml. a. urging that road gangs  be asked to donate one day's pay per man per month to the Canadian Patriotic fund, as is paid by jther Government employees."  ���   ���   ��� .  Another resolution passed was, *  " That the Secretary write to the Mayor and City Council of  Merritt requesting that they use their influence in getting larger J.  donafrb'ns from those employees'already contributing arid adequate.'=1-  contributions from those employees not now subscribing."  (Continued on page 4) *  Special Grant of  $2000.00 to the  Local Hospital  Fred Raspberry   In Thick-Oflt  Stirring Experience Amid  of Great Battle In  Ypres Region.  Din  I am in an English hospital but will  be out in a few days. I got hit in the  face first, walked about twenty feet  and found myself buried. I got out.  One of the boys s'artrd to attend to  my face wound when another shell  burst, hit me in a couple of places in  the back and killed the three men  alongside of me. How I got out at all  I can't say. It all happened at Ypres  I carried my rifle long enough without  a chance of using it but you bet I took  the opportunity of using it that time.  The writer is Fred. Raspberry, of  the Raspberry ranch near Nicola. In  this letter, to his sister Mrs. Cunie at  Nicola, he describes terrible sights pn.  the battlefield. He had a number of  souvenirs but lost most of them, and  for two months he lived in a: cellar.  Raspberry sends remembrances and  wishes of good luck to his relatives and  acquaintances, who will doubtless be  glaq to know that this brave soldier,  whose markmanship with a rifle, by the  way, it would be hard for any person  to surpass, has come safely through r  fierce engagement in the forefront oi  the allies Western line.  The* special grant by the Government of $2,000 as special aid  to the Nicola Valley General Hospital towards liquidating pressing  liabilities to the bank and to trade  creditors was officially acknow-  ledged!at the, meeting of Directors held on Monday, evening,  when the ready manner in which  the Government and Mr. Alex.  Lucas, M.L.A., had taken up the  hospital's request .was every favorably commented upon^  It is apparent from the statfi-  of  L. W. Shatford M. L. A, foi  Similkameen, passed throng)  the city last night en route from  Penticton to the Coast.  merit of the financial position  submitted by a special committee  to the looal member and the Government, and from well known  facts, that the institution is in an  unfortunate position.  According   to  the  statement  prepared a few weeks ago,  the  direotors required $4,700 to meet  current and past liabilities.    Of  this sum, $3,500 was for repayment of a bank loan, $571 for  March and April trade and sundry accounts, and approximately  $600 for salaries and accounts in  May,  Against these were shown ''assets���$89 cash and $2,421 debts  due by patients and others.  A notation oh ,the financial statement states  It is estimated thi.t 20 per cent  of the old accounts will be col-,  lected,  It has often been reported to the  meetings of the directors that  considerable of the $2,421 would  have been collected' if-ordinary  business precautions had   been  exercised and more business and  less sentiment had  been introduced by those responsible for  ihe care of this public institution in the past.  Daily Train to Run  from Nelson to  Coast over K.V.  ".Mr. Fisher tells me that the Hope  cut-off line will be ready for operation  at the end of this month, and I under-*  stand therefore that daily service between Vancouver and Nelson will start:  August  1st,"   announced   Mr.   Grant  Hall, general manager of the C. P. R.  Western lines while  in  Penticton  last  week.   Mr, Grant Hall, with other high  officials ofcthe C.P.R., including  Vice-,  president G.   J.   Bury and Mr. F.7W..  Peters,   superintendent   of   the   B. C.  division, spent the night,ih two private  cars there, leaving  for the Coast via  Spences Bridge on' Friday   morning.  Ot'ier members of the party in the private cars inclnded Hon. C. R. Mitchell,  treasurer of the Alberta-Government;  who came through the Southern B. C.  route on pleasure trip,and Mr.A.Little,  member of a New York firm engaged  in chemical and mineral research work.  Mr. Little is examining conditions'in  that line in this Province.  The opening1 of the daily service on  August 1st, would prove a great boon  to this part of the province, thought  Mr. Hall, as it would mean the incoming  of many tourists, who because of the  rapid through service from Nelson to  Vancouver would be sure to want to  come this way. There was no reason  why considerable traffic, both freight"  and passenger, should not also come  via the Crow's'Nest from the East, as  there was now only rne break, that on  the .Kootenay Lake where the C. P. R. "  however maintained an excellent barge  and steamer service.  Mr. Hall was'asked if it was the intention of the C. P, R. eventually .run  the Soo tiains through Southern B. C.  on the Crows Nest and K.-'V;: R. He  parried the question, however, by( re-;  plying that the K.V.R. was as yet &-  new line and its possibilities in this- -  connection had not yet sufficiently explored.  The Methodist Sunday School will  celebrate its anniversary on Sunday  next with special services. Mr. D.  Dodding wiH'conduct the service in-the  morning, the Rev. B. G, Stewart nnd  Rev. G. Kinney B..4. in the afternoon  and evening respectively. Special music  and recitations will be rendered at all  services by scholars of the Sunday  school.  7v'��: Friday, July 14, 1916  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS.

Great  Address :   The Nicola Valley News, P. O. Drawer 'L,'Merritt, B. C.  THE WILLING BUT REJECTED  British newspapers have frequently paid tribute to the scheme under  whsch Canadian soldiers returning from the battlefields are given buttons of honor signifying that they have done a noble duty for their  country. So far as we know nothing has yet been done in B. C. in  the way of awarding some small token by which the willing but rejected applicant for millitary service can be readily distinguished from  the sluggard or slacker. Many brave, patriotic men, imbued with  equal spirit to that possessed by the many who have donned the khaki  have been denied, owing to physical disabilities and.health deficiencies,  the burning desire to do their part in the firing line.  When war is over and our soldiers now in France again mingle with  civilians in the homeland the willing but honorably rejected man should  in all fairness be provided with a government certificate or button lo  protect him from being placed in the wrong category by the public.  Close observers of current and passing events realize the immense possibilities of the growing sentiment which will demand every honor, earned being given with a willing hand to the returned warrior.- The  other should not be forgotten ! It is true that a roan who sought service  in the army and was refused can obtain a certificate to that effect from  the military doctor who examined him. Still the fact that he, like  those accepted, offered his life for the service of his country is deserving  of nothing less than government recognition of the sacrifice he was  willing to make. A war measure of this kind is .needed now. ��� Too  many patriotic civilians have suffered insults long enough.  o    ���    ���  DEMOCRAT AND ARISTOCRAT  The appointment of Lord Derby as under secretary for war to  Lloyd George is a striking manifestation of the unity of the classes of  Great Britain in prosecuting the common task of bringing victory for  the allies. The harnessing together of a democrat and an aristocrat in  these changed times is but a taste of the possibilities to be expected  in other spheres of national life when war has ceased and the dawn of  "The new age" has arrived.  Sunny Nicola  Acting Secretary Miss McPhail  advises that the members of the  Nicola Branch of the N. V. Patriotic Guild met on Friday last  and despatched a parcel containing 27 pairs of sox to Miss Plummer at Shorn cliffe, and a box of  hospital accessories has been sent  to the headquarters of ^the Red  Cross Society at Toronto/The  box contained the following articles : 24 " Helpless " shirts, '40  pillow slips, 22 handkerchiefs, .6  hospital bags, 7 pairs bedroom  slippers, 4 packets cigarettes.  Donations received-last month  were : J. Bate (Aspen Grove) $5,  Miss Fadden $5, A. Farr $1, cigarettes Mrs. Leonard.  Mrs. G. Lodwick and daughter  Daphnie, will shortly leave for  England where they will reside  during the time Mr. Lodwick is  at the front with the Canadian  Engineers. He has joined the  camp of the 6th Field Company,  C.E. at North Vancouver. -Mrs.  Lodwick has, in consequence of  her impending removal from the  district, resigned the presidency  of the-Nicola Patriotic Guild, for  which she has done much useful  work.  Passing of Late  Mrs. Asrnes Hirsch  Pry Farming  at Quilchena  ^".Increased Acreage Put Down to  \-  '       Seed���Good Showing  i;.- ' of Crop  - Manager E. Brookland* of the  Experimental Dry Farm, Quilchena, was in the'-city on Saturday.   He reports that the present  / will be his third year's crop, and  that it shows every indication of  being a very good one. The  grain generally is showing up  well. This year there has been  rather too much "wet" to ensure  normal   tests   of   dry   farming  methods in dry belt sections, but  valuable experience is being  gained and data procured that  will do much to prove how large  sections of land in the Province  can be successfully farmed by the  Dry Farming Method.  During the month of June, 17  patients were admitted to the  Nicola Valley General Hospital,  and 21 were discharged. Two  births and three deaths are re  corded, in the monthly report of  Matron L. J. Fish. The daily  average of patients receiving  i treatment during the mo ath was  9.23. The following donations  are acknowledged:���linen from  the Ladies Auxiliary; vegetables,  Mrs. Joe Collett,. Mrs.  Ransom,  ' Mrs.   Staton ;  fish,   Mr.   Cole;  ��� baby's bed fornursery from Mrs.  s Skimmings.

Mr. John McRae  Returning Officer  B.  C. Gazette Official Pronouncements ��� Nominations  At Ashcroft.  Unusual interest attaches to the last  issue of the B.C. Gazette in that proclamations for the coming general  election are included in its contents,  giving full particulars as to the preliminary electi )n arrangements. Nomination of candidates will be taken  throughout the entire Province on  Thursday, August 3rd, and the elections  will be held on Thursnay September  14th.  The Gazette intimates that Mr. John  McRae,_of Agassiz, has been appointed  by the Lieutenant Governor as Returning officer tor Yale Electoral District  while the Government House at Ashcroft is determined as the place for the  nomination of Candidates.  Alex Lucas M.L.a., and Mr.' Joseph  Walters will carry respectively the  Conservative and Liberal banners, and  the probabilities point to the right in  Yale being a Btraight one between  these two gentlemen.  After two "commercials"  who missed and tried to catch up  to Saturday's outward bound  Coast train which was heading  towards Coutlee, and had turned back with perspiring t frames  and tearful eyes to mine host,  Murdock Mclntyre, Mack knew  he could "dodge" the K.V.R, if  he tried, so he cranked his fast  little car and sped off towards  Spences Bridge, catehing. up to  the train at Canford and depositing his guests safely aboard.-'  Lawyer and Mrs. Grimmett  came over from Merritt at the  week end, accompanied by Mr.  Grimmett's broth'r who was being shown a picturesque town,  unsurpassed for the beauty ot its  environment in the Province of  B. C.  The Patriotic Guild continues  ^o do good work for the soldiers,  The question of the annual garden party, whether it will beheld,  when and where, is being dis-  enssed in Merritt by people who  have attended these interesting  events.  N B. Porritt is visiting' at  Merritt and will spend a few  weeks as guest' of the Rev." and  Mrs. N. J. Thompson. L  Ranchers Bob Clark and S.  Jackson,and Pete Marquart were  visitors to the metropolis' of the  Valley last Saturday.  The Rev. J. Johnson conducted  a Presbyterian service here on  Sunday morning, for the first  time since succeeding the Rev. J.  Hyde.  Mrs.'Riley has returned home  after spending a vacation with  her daughter at Vernon.  k The usual bronzed-faced enthusiasts with the rod and line were  around~at the week end.  J. G. Warren of the coal city  was visiting here"on Sunday.  Three Local Men  ��� Pass Examination  The names of three local men  appear in the list of results of  examinations held at the various  coal mining sections of the Province on May 30, SI, and June 1,  last. > The results were announced by the Board of Examiners of  coal mine officials at Nanaimo.,  Local successes were:  First class���E. L. Warburton  Third class���James McGrath and  George Walker.  Twenty two^candidates passed,  3 being first class, 9 second, and  10 third.  T. T. Grimmett, barrister, of  Lemberg, Saskatchewan, accompanied by his daughter, is a guest  of his brother M. L. Grimmett oi  this city, being en route to the  Coast where they will spend a  couple of months before returning East.  Several thousand dollars dam-'  age was caused by fire which on  Friday destroyed the sash and  door factory of the W. G.' Scrim  & Co. at Vancouver. The business is owned by a brother of  Trooper C. E. Scrimp formerly  of this city, a returned soldier,  who in civilian life was emploj ed  at the Cash Store, and who has  been connected with the factory  since his return from the front.  The death took place at 5.30 on  Saturday afternoon of Mrs. Agnes  Hirsch.aged 67,who passed away  at the home of her daughter Mrs.  A. W. Strickland. The deceased  lady who had been in ill health  for a considerable time past had  been receiving the constant care  pf her daughters, Mrs. Strickland  and .Mrs. Warren,for some weeks  past and a sweet life ebbed put  after 72 hours of unconsciousness.  The passing of the deceased  lady can fittingly be described as  serenely beautiful in that during  her long illness she was cared for  and cheered by the loving devotion of her daughters and son-in-  law, having bestowed upon her  all the comforts that would tend  to brighten the autumn of her  days as well as enjoying the rest  of mind that those she has now  left behind to mourn her loss  were comfortably situated in  happy homes.  ' The final ceremonies were conducted on Monday, the funeral  taking place from the Strickland  home, where a private service  conducted by the Rev. N. J.  Thompson was held, to the Anglican Cemetery at Nicola, the cortege leaving by automobiles at  2.30. At the graveside a brief  committal service was held in the  presence of several relatives anJ  friends of the'famiiy. The principal mourners were A. W. and  Master Strickland, the,pall bearers A. Jackson (Mayor of Merritt], A. E. Howse, M. L. Grimmett, .-G. F. Ransom, J. Collett,  Joseph Graham,,  The funeral arrangements were  entrusted to N. J: Barwick.  Tenders Invited  , for Phone Poles  Supt. W. H. Stevens, of the  Government-Telephone Service,  is inviting tenders for 675 poles  to be laid along - the Mamette  Lake and Aberdeen Mine roads  and which will be used in the  construction pf the new telephone  service from Lower Nicola district to Mamette Lake. Tenders  wiil be received up to Tuesday,  July 25th.  The poles required must be 30  feet long, not less than 10 inches  diameter at the butt and7 inches  at the top, must be straight,  sound, clear of bark, and sawn  off square at both ends.  300 poles will be required to be  delivered along the Mamette  Lake road from a point near the  Steffens ranch to the post office,  a distance of ten miles ;  375 poles to be laid along the  main road to Aberdeen mine, from  the junction of the Lower Nicola  road, a distance of 12 miles.  With improvements to the line  along, the_main_road_to_Spences  Bridge in the Coutlee and Lower  Nicola neighborhood and the few  miles of connection between the  Aberdeen Mine vicinity and the  neighborhood of the Steffen's  ranch and which will cross the  creek, the total mileage will be  29.

A. Maughan for defend-  cases heard by Jtiis Honor Judge  Swanson in Yale County Court,  held at the Provincial Courthouse  in this city, on Wednesday.  McGoran vs. Gillis (Penticton)  An action to recover amount of  account for building materials  sold to defendant in 1912.  The defendant had entered a  dispute note by his solicitor (W.  Clayton, Penticton, B. C.) who  had appeared at the April court  and asked for an adjournment.  Neither defendant nor his solicitor appeared at this court and  judgmeut was given for plaintiff  for full claim and costs, with an  order for payment out to plaintiff  os $45.77 paid into court by the  K. V. Ry. Co., garnishees.  J. A. Maughan for plaintiff, W,  Clayton (Penticton) for defendant.  Roberts vs. McKay  This was an action by plaintiff  to recover the sum of $26.50 from  J. McKay of Aspen Grove for  board and lodging at Canyon  House and for emptying 440 sacks  of copper ore at Thalia siding,  which work the defendant admitted he had requested the  plaintiff to' perform for him but  'claimed that the amount charged  for the work, $20.00, was excessive. The defendant also coun-  teiclaimed against the plaintiff  in the sum of $36.75 for his expenses in going to see Mrs.Paige  at Minnie Lake, and also for a  visit paid to his solicitor &t Merritt, and for deficit in the price  of 425 ' sacks" which he claimed  plaintiff had wrongfully sold.  Hi? Honor dismissed the entire  counterclaim with costs, but reduced the plaintiff's claim to $10.  50, and gave him judgment for  that sum with costs.  J. A. Maughan for plaintiff,  and M. 17, Grimmett for defendant. - Cf  Clarke vs. Stumbles  In ��� this action, J. G. Clarke,  wheworks about the city, sued  Harry Stumbles .for the sum of  $35.00 which he claimed to be  due to him for two months wages  at $1.00 per day and board, from  March 13th last to May 13th, on  which Jate he left the plaintiff's  employ.'  The defendant contended that  he had not agreed to pay Clarke  more than^he had been paying  him through the winter months  which was $10 per month and  board to~feed stock and do chores  but admitted that he had said to  defendant that if he could do the  spring work of seeding, etc., he  would pay hJm "something  more " for the last month. Defendant had paid him $15,00 for  the last month and paid into  court an-additional sum-of-$15  and costs to date of payment, but  with a denial Pf his liability.  His honor after hearing the  evidence said that he believed  the defendants version of the  matter and that he considered  the defendant was paying Clarke  more if anything than he was  really entitled to.  Judgment was therefore entered  for the plaintiff for the amount  paid into court with costs to date  when money was paid in,and for  defendant as to balance of claim  with subsequent costs, including  all costs of trial.  M. L. Grimmett for plaintiff,  ant.  Jackson vs. French  In this action Archie Jackson  sued ���Orrin E. French for $400.00  for goods sold to defendant, in  1912 when defendant was a logging contractor.  Both parties appeared without  counsel and as it was very plain  that French owed the amount  and had no defence, judgment  was accordingly entered for the  plaintiff. Mr. French explained  to the court that the reason he  defended was that he supposed  that by allowing the oction to go  undefended he would be giving  a preference to the plaintiff, and  as he had a number of other of  other creditors he did not wish to  do this. His Honor advised him  to try and make some arrangement with all his creditors to  pay by installments or otherwise.  Chamber Applications  Bank of Toronto vs. Traill  This matter had been before  the court in April and His Honor  had reserved his decision as to  whether or not the defendant,  could recover costs from the  plaintiffs of a motion to compel  the plaintiffs to go on with an  action begun against him in June  1915 but which the plaintiffs later abandoned. The plaintiffs  solicitor had raised the technical  point that by the county court  procedure the defendant had no  locus standing and could not  properly make such a motion as  he>had made. His Honor stated  in April that the point was a new  one, never having been raised  before him up to the present time.  His Honor is still puzzling over  the problem, and has Still.further  reserved his decision.The amount  of costs involved is about $5.00  M. L. Grimmett for Applicant  J. A. _ Maughan for Bank of  Toronto. ���  Brown vs. Smith  This was an application by Mr.  Grimmett for leave to serve a  summons on the defendant in  Pet roi t, Mich., in an action for  the cancellation of an agreement  for sale of land in Merritt.

That Merritt is the natural  meeiing point for Spokane mining men with business connections at Highland Vallej? was  Brought more clearly to light  this week by B. W. Dunn, F..  Keffer and J. G. Haas who.. are  interested in the copper mining  developments at Highland Valley. That Ashcroft's misfortune  through the fire tended temporarily at least to Merritt's advantage was also demonstrated as  while here waiting to meet Mr.  Keffer the other two mining men  made camp purchases at local  stores. It is 34 miles by road  from Highland Valley camp to  Merritt and 26 miles from the  camp to Ashcroft, Better time  can be made to Merritt owing to  the better grade. Spokane capitalists and others going to Highland Valley can save the best  part-of a day's'- travelling by  alighting at Merritt and going by  auto instead of via Spences  Bridge and the main line. i  Hiked to Merritt  From Tacoma  Walter Thornton, grandson of  Mr. and Mrs. S.

Spend Pay-day at the Merco store  All members and friends of the  Red Cross Society are reminded  that a "Tacking Day " will be  held on July 27thi.; V  The important- resolutions re-  produced   on   page   one,    were  passed unanimously by the committee of the Patriotic fund in  session yesterday afternoon, and  followed free and frank discussions in which certain individuals  in the Nicola,Valley���they.were  openly named in the presence of  the press���were caustically criticized for their ''paltry and dis-  protionate " contributions to the  fund,   while  wholesale condemn  nation was levelled at-the'few  who have refused to donate one  cent towards aiding the dependent of those who have given  up home comforts and taken-a  place amid the perils and hardships of life in the fighting line.  A list laid on the table showed  that fourteen  persons who had  signed promises, of donations, to  the fund had not given a cent.  Instances  were quoted of residents,  who  were living in comfort, refusing toT'donate anything  whatever to the fund.  A painful  impression was created when the  secretary���who is suffering the  bereavement of the recent loss of  a brother at the front���remarked  that he knew from personal conversations  with dependents  of  soldiers in the Valley that the"  dependents feel keenly the disregard paid by some of the public  to-the   fund.     He  urged  the  strongest possible measures being taken to awaken the people  to the crying need of the country  in its'hour of peril.    Supporting  the resolution calling for the preparation of a "Traitors' List,"  A.  E.  Howse said he gave his  full support to the 'resolution believing that  it  would  awaken  some citizens to a realization of  the serious situation that would  face.them af teethe war'iwhen_a  stewardship  account  would be  taken.    " How can the sacrifice  of say a paltry dollar a month  compare with the supreme sacrifice of the brother or son who  lays down his life on the field of  honor, and whose loved ones qui  fund supports " he concluded.  In the case of a person who  until recently had been in business in this"city and could well  aford,   but refused to pay,   his  signed obligations to the fund, ii  was decided that the debt b  placed in the hands of a solicitor  for .collection, if found necessary.  .Regarding the finances,  Treasurer Strickland reported  that  $3,500 had,; been sent to headquarters up to date.   Contribu  tions paid in to June 30, with  June subscriptions from camps,  etc.  which paid wages in July,  aggregated $4,400 approximately,  which could pe considered as received during the first half year.  ���He had every reason to believe  that this achievement would be  maintained  during  the  second  period of the year.   The hospital  otaff were now subscribing ten  dollars monthly, he mentioned.  aggregating $439.50 are being  paid out by Secretary Kinney to  dependents "of soldiers, >    "  Among other business transacted was the passing of a .resolution, moved by-V, H;. Harbord  and A. W. Stickland thanking G.  Lodwick. who has enlisted, for  his services to the fund, and congratulating him on the -patriotic  spirit he has displayed ; a resolution of sympathy to Secretary  (Rev.)
