Saturday, Aug. 28, 1915.  i-  ./���/"Ik  _._  _v  The- protest  raised  by Canadian  officers at the front against fulsome  and exaggerated praise of their con-  ./ duct  is   timely.    A   section   of the  press of Canada ever since the Can  adian troops  entered the war zone,  has devoted itself to  the  most palpable exploitation of the  men at the  front.  To damm with over-praise in this  fashion'is to serve the interests of  the Canadian troops badly. It tends  to make them a laughing stock  amongst their comrades. It dulls  every subsequent burst of enthusiasm well-founded in performance  though it may be.  Canada's soldiers have done well.  They were expected to do well. They  did their duty and more in one critical situation, St. Julien at least,  when they "saved the day." Their  conduct on such occasions is worthy  of all possible praise, and there  should not be a continual flood of  unreasoning adulation, poured upon their devoted heads at random.  The Canadian soldiers at the  front are fighting side by side with  worthy comrades. British, French,  and Belgians are magnificent. To  draw invidious comparisons, such as  are made so frequently in the press  of the country, is unfair, unjust and  ridiculous. Canada may take, sufficient pride in the fact that her soldiers are the equals of their comrades in arms without reaching out  for some illusive superiority.  - Who has forgotten   the blockade  instituted by   the  British  navy that  prevented ammunition  reaching the  Boer armies,  and who  does not re-  memher the crocodile tears shed by  the  kaiser,  and   his   distinctly   expressed fears lest the Boer republics  be snuffed out of existence.     At the  < I same time has anyone forgotten the  great "help" the Germans were to the'  Boers at that critical stage of their  history, when the  Krupps supplied  the. British army with thousands of  tons of ammunition to .blow up the  Boer farmhouses and make widows  and   orphans   of  their  women and  children.     Finally  is  there  any record of the Boers protesting to Germany for supplying the British with  munitions on the grounds that they  could not get any themselves?

' Not  the power of England and the impo  tency of Germany against the empire of the Anglo-Saxon. The more  Germany advertises in literature,  art, diplomacy, and the daily press  of her hatred, .the clearer is the  cause and the issue. Were England  to realize the dream of Bernhardi  and become "the vassal of Germany," the affection of Germany for  its vassal would know no bounds.  At present the hate of Germany for  England is without limit, and is the  key of very strong situations, past,  present and future.���Boston News  Bureau.  A pupil nurse at the Royal Columbian hospital, New Westminster,  with only five months more to serve  before being graduated, has been  suspended for six months-for the  heinous crime of over-staying her  leave and marrying an officer of the  47th regiment. Those responsible  for the "sentence" might now qualify for positions in one ofourpene-  tentia^ies or reformatory schools.  There must be some humor in the  Netherlands' Dutch, after all. From  them the kaiser has learned that  the British have been reinforced  along the Yser canal by ten thousand Zulus. They might have gone  a bit further, and told the Germans  that the -British naval authorities  had raided the London Zoo for powder monkeys.  Writing in the German weekly  review, "Neue Deutschland," Dr.  Gradowski strongly criticizes the  attitude adopted by the press of the  fatherland in regard to British war  finance.

A Doukhobor colony is shortly to be established in  that neighborhood.  In a recent speech, General Botha  attributed all the serious trouble in  South Africa to German intrigue.  A bright-looking white girl has  just been fined $25 and costs by the  Vancouver magistrate for being  found in a Chinese opium joint.  About one hundred interned enemy aliens are engaged in building  roads near Edgewood on the Arrow  Lakes.    They are well guarded.  Hon. Martin Burreli has been informed that there is a sufficiency of  harvest labor in Alberta, but that in  Manitoba and Sask., there is a  shortage.  While examining a German aero  bomb, which had been sent home to  England, the apparatus exploded,  killing one woman and injuring  three others.  For the first time in the memory  of the oldest inhabitants of Hope,  the snow has disappeared from the  summit of Isolilak, the mountain in  the gap of Silver Creek.  ^.  The authorities of the Rockfeller  Institute have,, announced a discovery by two investigators, which it is  thought will give immunity from the  dreaded scourge of cancer.  The Manitoba government has  offered the Imperial government a  fully-equipped aeroplane of the latest type. The cost of the machine  will be about ten thousand dollars.  Travelling all the way from California, an old prospector rode into  Merritt recently driving a caravan  drawn by a couple of donkeys. He  had been about six months on the  road.  The report that the dreaded Cod-  lin moth had appeared in the orchards of the Vernon district, has  heen greatly exaggerated. In spite  of diligent search, only one specimen has been discovered.  Every household and factory in  Germany has been ordered to make  a statement of the brass and copper utensils in their possession.  Chief among tbe articles mentioned  are stove doors, distilling apparatus,  basins and mortars.  A movement has been started by  the Evening News and warmly taken up by British film companies, to  the end that no films will be pur  chased in America, unless the proof  is forthcoming- that the sellers have  no German affiliations.  Temporary Skipper James Brown,  of the Royal Naval Reserve, commanding   an*-'armed   steam trawler,  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH  IN  MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING POSSIBILITIES���  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores) while in a few localities there are. more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand' Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of-the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as  an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to  some   of  its   spendidly equipped or-^,  chards will prove a revelation to the stranger.      The highways throughout the^oun.- -  dary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having'^been  spent on the construction of government roads. -  _-'?;;'-'  No locality is better served  with railroads than  the Boundary, district. "At?,  present this section  is served  by two of the greatest systems oh the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will, be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new  K. V.

According to the correspondent of  the Berlingske Tidende at Stockholm, the traffic between Sweden  and Germany is so enormous that  the steamship and ferry lines are  blocked. Three weeks ago there  were seven hundred loaded truck*  awaiting shipment at Malmoe and  150 at Sassnitz.  An American attache, who has  been in the war zone for months,  has made the statement that, a  British battalion's fire is equal in  effect to that of a German regiment  of 3000 men. "In victory or defeat  they do not appear to lose control  of themselves," he added.  Pending the manufacture of the  new steel helmets for the French  army,700,000 steel head-shields have  been sent to the front. This is the  only species of armor that the sold-  iers have been permitted to use.  The head-shield, however, as it is  used, was proved recently by statistics to have saved a great many  lives.  The attention of the American  government has been drawn to the  unneutral utterances of the U.S.  consul at Munich. The Morning  Post says Mr. Gaffney visited London some time ago to make enquiries regarding German prison  camps in England "and while enjoying the hospitality of this country he was so loud in his expression  of anti-British opinion that he gave  offence to many persons stopping at  the hotel."

Asked if there was  a penalty  attached, the   official was  non-committal,   but   stated  that  if  a citizen  refrained from registering  and afterwards required   the assistance of the consulate, he might have  difficulty in getting it.     "American  citizens,"   he added,   "are properly!  expected   to  perform    such   simple  duties both willingly and cheerfully  as in fact they do in the majority of  tion that the Liberals would  be re  turned to power with a large major.  ty  if an   election    took   place  this  year.
