The Enemy in Our Midst Still Active-Should Be Expelled���������Pape 4  EXPELLED!!  On Wednesday night 200 ofi Vancouver's  prominent citizens met to execute judgment on a  man who has prospered in our city during tbe  last 20 years, and who, if report be true, has been  kindly dealt with by fortune under our Cany  adian government.  There seems to have* been little diversity of  opinion, for by a vote of 200 to. 2 or thereabouts,  the Board of Trade voted to expel T. A. Fee from  its membersihp.  The offense is a peculiarly ungracious one  particularly so at this conjuncture: / ' "  i. There are some Canadians who believe that  Canada ought to become a part of the United  States, and at ordinary times the country has  bourne very patiently with them, but Mr. Fee  has chosen the wrong time and place to discuss,  even academically, the dismemberment pf the Empire, and those who have-called him to account  have, we think rightly, likened his act to that of  l*"*' desertion in the face of the enemy. X  X  This it m dastardly act, and however thoughtless Mr. Jfaetoay have been at first, his repeti-  ptiolti*$t hfs folly at the BoaJ^f^T^ejneeting  Reserves the severest censure.  ."

POLAND AND PEACE  The.Spectator of August 29 publishes a telegram from Mr. de Zwan,  the well known Polish literateur. It  is dated Warsaw, August 21, and  states:  "Since war was declared by Germany all the Poles in the Russian  Empire, without distinction of party,  have declared'-'themselves-partners of  the Tripje Entente., Mobilization was  effected in Warsaw amid'scenes of  indescribable enthusiasm. For the  first time since the partition of Poland our peasants are taking an active .part  inthis  national  movement.  More than four hundred thousand  Poles are in the Russian army. The  idea of fighting against the.Germans  in company with our friends, the  French, and with the great and gen-r  erous English nation,.i inspires lour  hearts. and gives the, cjertainty. of  conquering our common foe."���������Antony de Zwan.

The distinctive thing about the program is  the fact that representatives who are  in attendance will not be compelled  to bring credentials with them from  any appointive power. This is a clear  departure from the usual rule of congresses, conferences, conventions and  the like. The idea in departing thus  from the usual custom is to simplify  and democratize the Ninth sessions  so far as possible and to extract the  highest possible usefulness from  them.  The Rev. Dr. Alexander M. Brodie,  pastor of the .First Presbyterian  church of Wichita,- will deliver the invocation. . The assemblage will be  called to order .by W. I. Drumrnbhd,  of Muskogee, Oklahoma, chairman of  the International Board of Governors.  Then there wilt be the introduction  of Charles W.

Monday afternoon at 2' o'clock in  the consistory, there will be a session on demonstration work, with the  roll call of states.  Discussions or reports will be limited to five minutes. Responses on  the part of states of the West in the  sub-humid region will be made by  representatives of agricultural, colleges, experiment stations, or those  familiar with the progress of agriculture and of dry farming in the sub-  humid regions. These* reports will be  very interesting indeed.  Monday night at 8 o'clock the governors' session will be held, Governor  George H. Hodges, of Kansas, presiding. There will be addresses by perhaps half a dozen governors' in attendance, including Governors Lee  Cruce, of Oklahoma, Elias M. Amnions, of Colorado, E. W. Major, of  Missouri, Joseph M.

His fame as a tactician has  long since passed the boundaries of the Netherlands.  The Dutch army consists of 100,000 trained  men, which with the reservists and1 the "land-  strum,--will be augmented to-250,000,-and if-  necessary to 400,000 men.  The army is now mostly concentrated in  Putch Limburg, around Maestricht, guarding  Dutch territory from violation by German troops.  Holland, with her usucfV'caution, hfts kept out  of the war so far, although*/ should Germany win,  her independence would be1 gone instantly in spite  of any obligation which m������y bave been given to  secure her neutrality.

There are some beautiful Scotch . twee���������ds, -otr  various ' weaves,. including  homespuns,   plaids,,  checks and overpJai4s, stripes in all the,,seven,  colors of the rainbow and in multitudinous combinations. . ,  Jhe keynote of brownish green is evident in  - all the newer fabric weaves.  Autumn styles show the trim and dapper designs, with the quality and refinement which have i  made Semi-Ready cloths so distinctive and popu-,'  lar.  The new styles possess the shapeliness. and������  grace and bring out in marked degree the best  lines of the masculine figure. Trousers are of-  narrower width, coats a bit shorter, and showing ���������  the waist line. The younger set .will find coats������  which may almost suggest a corset under the coat, -  while waistcoats are cut to give a chesty effect.  _Yet _while-the clothes are closer fitting and  the colors are gayer, the art of the designer and  weaver achieve so well that there is nothing flashy  about them. There is tone, which is another way  of saying they are in good taste. And we are  growing in culture and in appreciation of the details of fashion which go to make up good dress.  The primitive ereature who wears strange and  fantastic checks and flashy colors only creates a  ripple of amusement.  "More than any year in the history of Semi-  Ready Tailoring do I believe that men will study  the economy and efficiency of pur wholesale tail-,,  oring methods. A five or ten dollar bill saved  nowadays will be worth treble, when international  affairs straighten out," concluded the director of  designs. ���������  Thomas & McBain of 655   Granville   street, ���������  have the only store in Vancouver where the genuine Semi-Ready'Tailoring may be had.

Prompt action -on the part of  the government has prevented many  settlers from ruin and others from  leaving the'areas affected.  Owing to abnormal weather conditions, Southern Alberta and Southwestern Saskatchewan this past season experienced an almost total crop  failure. Owing to the fact that these  districts have been ' recently settled,  the loss of crops was doubly serious  to the settler?. .  '   Acted Quickly  When it became apparent that relief would be necessary, Hon. Robert  Rogers, acting Minister of Interior,  immediately called to the Capital officials and others familiar with the  districts and conditions. After a conference with these men, and also the  cbmmisisoner pf the R. N. W. M. P.,  a plan of relief was agreed upon. The  relief work was placed in charge of  Mr. Bruce Walker, of the Immigration department, and Mr. Angus McKay, inspector of western experimental, farms. These men were to act  with, the Dominion lands officials and  the R. N. W. M. P.  It was arranged that where necessary food would be .furnished the settlers. Where fodder could not be obtained by the settler for his stock this  could also be furnished.  Homesteads Protected  To protect thi. settlers it was also  arranged that no cancellations of  ^homestead entries would be permitted  until next spring; that settlers who  had completed their pre-emption duties could "prove up" and the necessary payment's could be deferred.  This permitted the settlers to seek  work elsewhere without.,endangering  .possession of their claims. Another  concession to the ' settlers" seeking  .work in other part? -is that the time  j&lwertt'wiH not b* deducted from their  homestead duties. Arrangements  were also made that the settlers could  secure free transportation from their  homes to the wheat "fields. s The government also arranged that all the  horses, nearly 1,000, required' for the  R N..W. M. P., wcfeUTbft purchased  in the area affected by the crop failure. Provision has; also been made  to furnish the. settler* ytrith seed and  grain for next season's crop.  Retained on the Land  -  In this manner the government has  protected the. settlers from hardship  and suffering, has given him an opportunity to secure work elsewhere,  and yet not endangered possession  bf his land by absence, and has furnished a market for the surplus stock  of the district!     *  , Prompt action and generous provision have retained' the settlers in  these-districts and given them an opportunity to reap the reward of the  bountiful harvests of the future.  INCREASING LIVE  STOCK PRODUCTION  The outbreak of the war in Europe  and the consequent demand which is  naturally to be expected for increased  exports of meats, finds Canada in .a  very much "denuded condition as regards live stock. -���������    -  As a result of the removal of the  American tariff on cattle a heavy  export trade developed to the south.  In some districts in Eastern Canada,  nearly everything has been shipped  out of the country, except dairy cows.  This export-' trade, together ''with  many farmers selling their calves for  veal, can have'but one result in Canada, viz., a greater scarcity of meat  than- at present exists, even in a normal -market. ' -  The meat industry in Canada should  not be allowed to dwindle���������rather,, the  production of hogs, sheet) and cattle,  on Canadian farms should be greatly  increased'. To obtain this increase  does not mean that farmers should  devote their whole attention to live  stock. The majority of farmers will  admit that with very little extra effort and expense )they could increase  by several head, {hec Jive stock ion  their, .farms without in any way interfering with their present system of'  farming. ,  From reports to the Commissioner  of Conservation, present conditions  indicate a world-wide scarcity of live  stock/ with, little likelihood' of; , fin  overcrowded -marketer many years  to come. "The opportunity for Can-  adian;'farmers is, therefore, apparent  To take advantage of this, farmers  should save their better calves %o produce more cattle, wfiile' the others  may be turned off, not as veal but as  beef. .. , y  Expert stockmen advise that there"  are.'good times ahead for those raiting 'sheep. The high price* bf mutton  and bf wool and the comparative ease  with, which a flock of rsheep m*y be  sustained upon find which, id' otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, should  suggest a great increase in the nu'nt-  ber bf sheep raised "by Canadian  farmers. ��������� ,,  ^Increased -production in hogs can  be brought about more quickly than in  any other class of live stock, and consequently should receive immediate  attention.  Animal production on the (arm is  desirable because it increases the fertility and crop raising ability of the  soil. Good prices are sure v to be obtained for any surplus which farmers  will have to sell -on account of the in*  > -ft-  ������������������ '     },u  evitable shortage' ofj, supply resulting <  from war conditions in Europe.  These' two conditions'should be an.  incentive to Canadian farmers to increase their live stock production. A^  little .foresight now, with modern  methods' of feeding, will make'-increased 'production easily possible.���������  F. CM. ' :  REGINA  The city of Regina has taken steps  to assist the settlers in the drought-  areas of Western Canada. ��������� All such "  settlers who have stock for which  they have no feed, have been notified  to ship their stock to the Regina  'Municipal stockyards, where they will  .be. properly fattened, and the. pro-.,  ceeds, less the cost of feeding,, will  be returned to the farmer. This assures the farmer of good return* ftfr  his stock. A proper" agieeifiertt,  which protects both the farmen and  the city has been prepared.  The fact that thousands'of acres  of good land-in Western Canada are  not cultivated has resumed' in the Regina Board of Trade startinga "closet" settlement" movement. . This  movement has been started with the  idea of increasing the production of  Western Canada, as it is felt that  the present is a 'very ^opportune time  for-such. a scheme.

The  following dispatch, signed by JJ. JJ. Stevens, M.  P., Col. Duff-Stuart, and Mayor Baxter, was sent-  tonight to' Col. the Bon. Sam Hughes:  "Several hundred militia men who^ave been  mobilized for from five to seven weeks, many of  whom left positions to join, and large numbers of  whom have lost their positions during their period  of mobilization,' are now demobilized, but stand  .ready and anxious to go to the front.: In addition there are about 2,000 who can be mobilized  and sent forward on a few days' notice. The  geiieral feeling here is that the valuable training  given these men during the past two months  should not be lost, and it is greatly feared that  most of them will be scattered and we shall be  :< unable to recover them unless held together at  the present time, v  .X.Many of these, :in response to the widely-  announced statement from Ottawa, came from  distant parts of the province and as far south as  California and Arizona, and .at their own personal expense.   These men are now turned adrift,  without any intimation of when they will be required, and with absolutely no means of susten- -  ance.  "From all sections of the public we are del- '  uged with demands for explanations, which we  have given to the best of our ability, but there is  a general ieeling of dissatisfaction.and constant '  demands that some definite steps be taken to use  these men.   It is urged that they:should remain  mobilized and be vigorously trained, so; that theyt  ;may be ready to respond immediately to the fealli  which the government has already intimated may  be expected at any time for further men.   About  fifteen hundred have been demobilized by recent  orders in Vancouver alone.   In addition to this  fifteen hundred, at least one thousand more stand  ready to respond immediately.  "We might' add that it is qtiite feasibile to ".  keep in training twenty-five hundred men, and  that the'piresgure of public feeling is such that we  think it advisable that immediate steps be taken  to carry out this idea." t  BR ACE UP VANCOUVER AND READ THIS  IMPRESSIONS OF THE OLD LAND  Professor George C.

'  There is quite a revival in building  construction in Chicago as well as  elsewhere in this country, now that  the first effects of the paralysis due  to' the declaration of war have passed  away, says Construction News.  '.; For/ a few days it seemed that no  more building permits would ever be  taken.out again; the effect was not  only immediate; it was instantaneous.  Then came the announcement that no  new building loans could or wpuld.be  made, and that seemed to settle the  question; building must cease 3t once,  and it did for a few days, but it was  not long until a change  came over  conditions  and  builders  were    busy  again.   :_/ . - _.-:'���������-: ���������;���������-���������-���������: '--- V: . >,.

V     V  The Making of the New Army in Britain  <  John Scott in the Chicago Tribune  aas an exceedingly" interesting article on the "Making of a New Army in  England," and which' we believe our  readers yn\\,appreciate:  "tn Lord Kitchener England has a  war minister who' typifies the national character in his grim determination. Kitchener is too good a soldier to underestimate the task which  lay before the allies in beating Germany, so he set at once to plan for a  long war. It is understood that he  hoped it would not last six months,  but he has made all his plans to fight  for years if necessary.  "The first of these plans is to provide a constant succession of armies  -which will take the field at regular intervals, besides supplying the wastage of war in those which have preceded them, until .England has in  arms 1,000,000 men, most of them  fresh, to oppose the battle worn and  wearied Germans. He has also called  in the services of the splendid native  1 ^ army of Jndia, which he made him-  * self, and of which he is immensely  proud. Indian troops are noyr' either  actually in France, or will be in a few  days, "and KitchetjerXxpects them to  give va good accolm't--of themselves.  Englishmen,- who know them, say the  Germans will crumple up before the  fierce knife and bayonet fighting of  the Ghurkas and Sikhs.

The Maharajah of Mysore offered his entire  army and $1,666,666. Another great  Indian prince telegraphed to Kitchener direct, "What������ orders from his  majesty for me .and my troops?"  Without a single. exception the native princes hav������- placed themselves,  their men, and their money at the  Empire's disposal.".^  "In addition to this, Canada, Australia, and all the other self-governing dominions are sending men. Now  let us consider.what forces Kitchener  has to draw on for the great struggle.  The regular army, most of which is  now in the field, consists, when fully  mobilized, with reserves, of about  300,000 men. Behind that stands the  territorial army created by Lord Hal-  dane when he was minister of war,  amounting to about 300,000 more. By  the terms of the enlistment, however,  the territorials cannot be compelled  to serve outside of Great Britain. It  is hardly necessary to say, that most  of them have already volunteered for  foreign service..  To Send Territorials to India  000; more, but obviously it cannot all  Se withdrawn from India, or if it is  it rirast' be in part replaced by other  British troops. As a matter of fact I  understand "H- ���������������' proposed to' briilg  every available 'Indian ' soldier and  send sbme of the territorial regiments  to garrison "India. One reason for  this is the political effect. Kitchener  has the mind of a statesman as well  as that of a soldier, and he realizes  that nothing will consolidate the loyalty of India to ~ the Empire forever  like allowing her troops to fight side  by side with the British troop% against  the Empire's foes. The Indian native  states jmight provide another 50,000  men, and the contribution of the self-  governing dominions is problematical  both, in, number and quality-' This is  not said in any disparaging sense, but  it is evident that the dominions must  raise their troops'J by volunteering  and' that the men must be more or  less untrained when they arrive in  Europe.  Starts Advertising Campaign  ��������� "Kitchener, has made up his, mind  that he must make a succession of.  armies in. the United Kingdom, and he  has set about it with characteristic  vigor. His- first request to Parliament was for power to add 500,000  men to the army, and as sobh as that  ivas given he announced that ; he  wanted 100,000 men atXnce? At first  recruiting was rather slow, but Kitchr  enter was hot discouraged. ' He called  in a,couple of the greatest advertising experts in London, and the next  morning- every paper in the country  had page . advertisements reading,  "Your King and Country Need You,"  and explaining the terms of enlistment. Posters appeared on every  blank wall in the three kingdoms, and  every omnibu_ and taxicab ' in the  cities bore the legend, in great red  letters: "Enlist for the war; Discharged when over-" Within less  than a month Kitchener had the 100,-  000 men he demanded for his first  army and was on the road towards his  second. He intends going right on  until he has his five armies of 100,000  each. Immediately after his first  army'was completed he called in re  presentatiyes of a number of the big  banks, and insurance companies and  others concerns employing large numbers of able bodied and unmarried  young men. ' '.''���������'.  " 'I want your men,-' Ke said.  " 'But we must carry on" our business,'' said the big employers.  "'Get girls,' was KitchenerVreply,  and. when the employers protested  further he said something like this:  "'See  here,   now.    If    you    don't  send me your men willingly I will go  and take .them myself, and 1 will publish broadcast the name of every com-  "The Indian army, both white and'pany and  firm  that  discourages  its  -**  *************,Hr*******^^ at war strength, is about 300,-.young men from enlisting.  17,  You can  sue me for libel if,you likei I don't  think you'll get much sympathy front  any British jury.

I don't want tlie  married men���������yet.'  ' Employers Co-optrate  - "This was a long speech for Kitchener, but it had its effect. It must be  said, however, that the objectors were  very few in number, and that the  great majority of employers fell in  willingly with Kitchener's scheme.  They called their employees together  and advised them to enlist Some  went so far as to say that every unmarried man who did not present himself for enlistment would be dismissed, and nearly all promised either  full pay or half pay and their jobs  back again at the end of the war to  men who joined the colors. One big  London banking firm tried to restrain  its clerks from joining, saying that too  many had joined already. Kitchener  secured a statement from some' of the  clerks and sent it to the papers, many  of which risked the libel law and published' it; ::V;XV::  ' / --Tub of Making Soldiers  "There is absolutely no doubt now  that Kitchener will get his 500,000  men, but a greater task than enrolling  them awaits him. He has to turn  them from a rabble into an army,  and it is for this reason that he has  decided to enlist them in batches of  100,000 rather than at once. The  truth is that. he is short both of instructors and officers. There are  enough "old soldiers and retired officers, too old or otherwise unfit fo������*  active service; to train 100,000 men at  a time, but ��������� not enough for 500,000,  and there is absolutely no supply of  trained officers and non-commissioned, officers to draw upon.  ���������"All the cadets at Sandhurst���������the  West Point of England���������have been  turned out a year or.two ahead of  their time to provide junior officers  for the regular units and to supply  the wastage of war, so that the officers of the new army have to be made  as it goes along. For this purpose  Kitchener Has appealed to all the  great public schools which have officers' training corps in connection  with them, to give him their boys,'  and the universities have also been  appealed to. in the same way. He is  also offering commissions to men in  civil life of good' education and -fair  social position who are able to satisfy a rough and ready educational  and physical test ������  Against Rising from the Ranks  "It is interesting in this connection  to quote a retired officer who has for  a number of years been on Kitchener's  staff and who knows the war ptinis*  terV mind'thoroughly.^  "���������K. of K. doesn't believe in the  ranker officer,' he. said, "and that itn't...  from any snobbishnits^r class feeling. He believes, and I agree with  him', that .service $n -ifce panics is  cramping. Take a duke's son of superior intelligence and put him in the  ranks for six months, and a laborer's  son of ordinary intelligence and make  him an officer at the start. Then  promote the duke's son from the  ranks, and I'll go bail that the laborer's s,on makes a better. officer because he has never been in the ranks.  " The ranker officer can rarely get  on with his men. He knows too much  about them, and they know it and  hate him for it. He is too liable to  punish for petty infractions of discipline which the gentleman officer  would overlook, or possibly would  never see.'  "I am told that Kitchener's planls  to provide the senior officers from  the younger men    who    distinguish  themselves^wfith the regular forces in%,  the earlier stages of'the war.   These-  men will be selected for their proved  ability to cotnmand fairly large bodies of troop's.

Dolsn't Favor Mslrboroughs  "Kitchener is no believer in the  theory that every officer must be a  strategist. He. believes that strategists are needed only for the higher  commands and that nothing is more  fatal to an army than too* many  'clever' officers. What he wants for  the great, bulk of his lieutenants and  captains are young men who can lead  other men and inspire, enthusiasm,  and if they can do that and at the  same time obey orders he prefers them  to double the number of budding  Marlborough s.  "His non-commisisoned officers are  being picked in much the same way.  The instructors have,orders to watch  their men-closely and at the end of  the first week's drill in every company  a number of the more intelligent of  the emen are selected for corporals'  and sergeants and given temporary  rank. Instead of making things easier for them, this promotion makes  their work harder, for in addition to  the;regular drills which all the other  men have to do, they are required to  attend, classes where they are instructed in their duties as !non-coms'  and at the end of a fortnight they will  be required to pass an examination  somewhat less stiff than that usually  required from candidates for promotion.

Kitchener.is confident  that a couple of months of this training will give him a set of 'non-coms'  equal to any in the world.  Getting the Pick of the Kingdom  "This may seem a large order in  view of the fact that it is generally  supposed that six months are required  to make a private soldier and at least  a year to make a non-commisisoned  officer. This brings me to another  feature of Kitchener's scheme. - When  he took over the war office even the  Liberal government had become convinced that compulsory military serV- j  ice was a necessity for England, but  Kitchener said, 'No.' In ordinary,  times he is, like most soldiers, an advocate of universal service, but he  knew that to train the whole man-;  hood of the United Kingdom to arms  in a few months was too big a task,  even for him. He wanted only the  pick of the Kingdom, and heVknew  that ihe way to get it was by calling  for volunteers, and he knows that he  is getting now a class of men whose  average intelligence is much higher  than that of the ordinary soldier and  who moreover is keen on his'work.  "Another point is that the new armies are putting as much training into  a week as the ordinary army gets in  a month. There is not a vacant field  or open space around London that has  not its unit at drill almost from dawn  till dusk, and the same is going on all  over the -United Kingdom. Liverpool was the first city to complete a  full regiment, but it was, only a  couple of days ahead of the rest of  the/ country.

Return to Old Territorial System  -"This has been made possible by  Kitchener's scheme by which parties  of friendsVand acquaintances joining  in groups' of fifty or more are assured  of being posted to the same company  and smaller parties are promised that  every effort will be made to allow  them to serve together. In fact, this  is a return to the old territorial sys;  tem unde'r which England's armies  under Wellington achieved their  greatest glory. At Waterloo and in  the peninsula the men from the same  village fought shoulder to shoulder'  In Kitchener's new army they will do  so again, and to carry out the analogy  more completely he has revived the  old territorial regimental names  which, it is true, had survived in popular speech for the old army, but had  been pfficially dropped.       v  May Be Made a Duke  "Nothing seems too big or too small  for him to look aftej. When the expeditionary army left for France each  than carried in his service book a personal message from Kitchener appealing to him to behave well abroad  and' to abstain from looting, drink,  and women! Every unit that left London or the neighborhood was visited  by him before it left, and in many  cases he was at the railway stations  when they entrained.  "The British soldier is inclined in  peace times to grumble at Kitchener  as a martinet, but in war he. loves  him.  "And just aword in conclusion. Already they are-talking of Kitchener  as 'the Duke' in certain select political circles in London. When this  war is over, and especially if the Kia-  ser is crushed, nothing will be too  good for the soldier who was ready  when England needed him."
