AT THE CALL OF THE .I&TO  THIS WAS THE THEME of an address dt I ered by Wm. Pascoe Goard at the Sixth Avenue  Methodist Church on Sunday, morning last.    '  The  theme  was  a  striking  presentation   of  the Kingship of the Christ.   Mr. Goard pointed  out that  the prophetic  ministry of the  Christ  was fully  developed during his life and ministry, and found expression in the gosfrels.v  The priestly office also was fully executed,  culminating in His great sacrificial offering on  the cross.  But .the Kingly office of. the Christ was not  only not then entered upon, but was avoided  when the people would have taken him by force  to   make   him   King.  Mr. Goard further pointed out that the narrative of the four evangelists ceased at the ascension when "A cloud received him out of  their sight" the gospel narrative ceasing with  the end of physical vision, x  He pointed out, however, that the activity of  the Christ did not cease with His passing out'  of the range of the physipal vision of the disciples. There was, therefore, -provision made  that one should witness the further activities  of the Christ, and therefore' John was called  in the spirit to be present at and to bear witness to the great coronation pageant which  appears to have immediately taken place on the  ascension^ of the Christ. ./  Thus the ' chapters'. of the Revelation dealing with that great scene continue the narrative  of the  activity of the Christ after His ascension.  The scene was read, graphically depicting  that  great  event.  The Throne is described. and one sits upon  the Throne.  The Four Orders of Conscious Life  ~  Before and aboty; it are the four diverse living creatures, representing the beasts of the  field, the domestic cattle* the birds of the air,  and the  order of mankind^  There were the four and twenty elders  apparently representing the two dispensations  then existing, the Mosaic in the , twelve patriarchs and the Christians in the twelve apostles,  making together the four arid twenty elders.  There were the multitude of the redeemed and  the multitude of the ailfeel hosts. X  They  sang three kpngs.  1. The -song  of  Creation.  2. The song of redemption.  3. The song of the coronation.  In the hand of Him Who sat upon the  throne was a book sealed with seven seals.  None was found worthy to open the book  or  to  loose  the  seals.  The Lion of the tribe of Judah however, was  found worthyv To him was given the book and  he commenced in that presence to open the  seals. It was and is found that the things written in the book was and is a predictive history  of the events to transpire in the succeeding  ages.     ���������    ;.   . . x        .  As to the application of the things to the  happenings of history, Mr. Goard made no attempt  to   explain.  But that  they  referred  to  such  happenings  he   declared  was   clear.  _.g_.__^���������.__^___���������^._���������^���������_.^._ jQ^pj^iJ  of. the Christ as having been formally inaugurated at His ascension, he passed to the  consideration of the present war and to the  Kingship of Christ in relation to it. He pointed out that as soon as Germany declared this  most dangerous and unrighteous of wars there  was an instant springing to arms by all the rest  of the world, save America, and she began to  get ready.  Within a few days, from Vladivostock, men  began to march westward, and from Victoria  they began to march eastward. Japan in the  meantime filled the gap between by attacking  Germany in the Pacific, thus belting the globe  with marching men answering the Call of the  King.  He showed that from Australia in the  south to Siberia in the north, including India,  Straits Settlements and Japan, Asia in all its  length responded to the call except Turkey,  who had been befooled by Germany.  He showed that Africa, from Capetown to  Cairo, mustered its races and sprang to arms in  answer to the Call.  He showed that Europe was practically a  unit in responding to the call of tho King,  from the west coast of France and Britain to  the Dardanelles.  From history he declared that never before  had humanity with such unity spranjr to arms  and that no human agency was sufficient to  explain the phenomenon. They came and are  coming to the Call of the King. "Come up to  the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord  against   the  mighty."  In the evening Mr. Goard followed /with a no  less   striking   address   on  the   theme   "Britain  and  the  Bible,"  and  those who  were present,  went away with a higher view .of their citizenship than  they had  hitherto" held.  The patriotic music at both services was  worthy of the occasion.  The tortoise in the  right  road  will  beat  a  racer in the wrong. .  TAX SALES  WE ARE SORRY to see that  there are"Advertisements of long lists of lands for sale  for taxes in several  of the municipalities.   Under the war conditions now prevailing  there should be no tax sales.   There are other ways to tide over the crisis and some  way other than this should be taken.  Borrowing on the overdue taxes furnishes the best security in the world and money is  available for the purpose. .-._.'���������  But to offer the property of other men, men in like financial condition as the municipality and for the  same reason, is dastardly in our judgment.  It appears to us to resemble the actions of those miscreants who rob the fleeing refugees of battlestricken Europe of the little they have been able to save from the calamity  in their flight.  Further, we have again and again pointed out that there is not a hardship connected  with the method of sale which has been avoided. ,  1. All the land is offered for sale and not sufficient only to pay the taxes.  2. AH the land is offered for sale, terms spot cash. Now, when the provincial government puts on sales by auction of parts of. the public domain it offers it for sale on terms.  What can be expected for a cash sale on the market at the present time? The down payment might be made sufficient to redeem the taxes and the balance be paid to the owner  for a term of years.   But this would not be sufficiently brutal, and so the sale is for CASH.  We are not given to thei using of strong terms. But here are no erms oo srong  to characterize this proceeding under the present circumstances.  All the poppycock arguments about the defaulter which are used to. bolster up the  practice fall before war conditions. > The thing is a legal robbery. -  THE INTERNMENT OF ALIENS  Failure is not the worst thing in the world.  The worst thing is not to try.  CONSIDERABLE EFFORT IS BEING MADE  in certain quarters 'to make political capital  by catering to the "jingo" element who are  demanding the internment 6i all aliens, regardless of law, precedent, or cause.  The occasion is made an excuse for attacking the Dominion government, and, unfortunately, many responsible citizens have been so misled  in the case as to support in a degree these designing jingos. It is argued that because Germany has followed a certain gravely reprehensible course, that we should retaliate: Should  we? If we dp we at once lower ourselves to  Germany's level, which, we say, is worse than  that of any savage people.  Then, if we adopt the policy of retaliation,  we must also sink defenceless merchant ships,  murder women and children, crucify, prisoners,  fire on the Red Cross, etc. We should disre-  gard the '"integrity! and iridepehdehee of the  small andXveak countries of Holland and Denmark, because it suits our purposes to do so.  We should depart from our tradition of a thousand years and violate our treaties, if it suits  our purposes to do so.        X  We must either adopt the brutal and brainless policy of Germany and reap the rewards, or  we must stand by the glorious traditions and record of our beloved Empire. .  Germany was honorable in peace and false  in war. We pride ourselves that at all times  and in all countries and under the most provocative circumstances British honor, justice and  integrity  must remain unsullied. - Xx  For several decades every province in Canada, every town ond city has made special efforts to bring in immigrants. We urged them to  come, we exploited them when they had money,  . we used them in all our works, and now some  advocate interning them regardless of this re-  cordj Shall we^ Germanize Canada? Shall we  be Vguided" by ~passion and" sing a "Hymn of  Hate?" Or, shall we administer our laws sanely and in accordance with the decrees of British justice?  Great Britain, under the leadership of the  greatest men in British history, has adopted a  policy whereby all aliens, capable of doing injury to our cause, shall be interned. Sir Robt.  Borden ;s government has followed this safe precedent , and thousands have been gathered in,  but no man who is true and law abiding has  anyllnng to fear. Thousands of citizens, who  now thoughtlessly condemn these statesmen, will  on mature thought, realize that they are right,  and that the spectacular actions of. some politicians and agitators are the actions of small  men   seeking  notoriety.  Another phase of the problem is this: It costs  the country as much to intern, guard and feed  each prisoner of war as to equip and maintain  a soldier at the front. Where does our duty  lie? In senseless and indiscriminate internment, or in sending men to Europe?  We have over 250,000 aliens in Canada which  might be interned. Shall we do this under the  heat of passion, or shall we bend our efforts to  the conquest and follow, in the other matter,  the well known traditions of our race?  THE UNEMPLOYED  WHILE THIS IS a serious problem in the west,  especially in Vancouver, still it is not limited entirely to the.west���������Montreal, Toronto,  and other cities in Ontario and Quebec have it  on   their  hands   also.   Nova   Scotia   and  New  .Brunswick  seem   reasonably  free  from it  and  are in a good  position.  We may make up our minds to one thing,  ,.iviz.',. that  we  will  in  all probability have  to  ^provide assistance to unemployed for at least  ^another year, therefore the problem should be  faced intelligently and firmly.  First, all methods of relief should be with  a view to making the men so employed self-  sustaining. X :.���������/'���������'  Secondly, we must avoid making men pau-  pera���������-it is not charity' men want, but work.

PAPER FOR AUSTRALIA  INCREASING SHIPMENTS of paper from Powell River, have been carried by ships, bound  for Australia, during the last few months.  The Wyandotte, which sailed last week, carried  a large quantity of B. C. paper, the call for  which is becoming heavier every? month. The  products of. this province are fast finding markets, and our trade seems to be expanding  steadily  but surely.  In reply to a question in the House of Commons, Mr. Tennant. Under Secretary of War,  said that Britain is now building a fleet of giant  aeroplanes which will carry crows of five men  and five times as much explosive as an ordinary  biplane.  Sir Eward Grey, Secretary for Foreign Affairs, has issued a statement warning British  subjects against visiting Mexico, 'unless absolutely obliged to do so by imperative necessity.T  THE WAB  MUCH ANXIETY IS BEING expressed because  we have not driven the Germans out of Belgium and because "Kitchener's drive" has  not materialized. Why be alarmed? Kitchener  said "The war will commence in May." It has  in real earnest.. "  ���������Let us briefly size up -the-situation. France  arid Great Britain are face to face with German hosts on the west. It is true they have not  driven the Huns back, Dut neither have the Huns  succeeded in one single attack. They have not  broken our line���������they h.ave been held at bay. .  Russia has attacked the Hun on the east. At  first the Russians made spectacular advances in  northern Prussia, and along the Vistula, but  suddenly they ceased this drive and concentrated  all their efforts on the Galician campaign, seeking to force their way through Hungary, and, on  to where? To the "Dardanelles, the great objective of Russia for centuries���������a part of the  policy of Peter the1 Great, which policy has become a "religion" with the Russians.  When this Galician campaign developed  France and Britain turned their attention to the  same quarter, and our fleets and troops have  been concentrating on the Dardanelles campaign.  Why was this done? Because it-was absolutely essential to permanent peace that Britain should control the Straits. Constantinople,  Persia, Palestine and Egypt must come under  British control or there can be no peace in  Europe.  Had we, France and Britain (and now Italy  as well) neglected this move it would have been  a fatal error. There will not be much advance  on the western line until our position is absolutely assured on the Dardanelles.  We may rest assured that our great statesmen are not failing us in this emergency, as so  many seem to fear. Sir Edward Grey took a  trip to Southern Europe "for a ,'rest" we are  told. Immediately Italy entered the Avar on our  side. Sir Edward Grey went on a trip to "nowhere" because "of his eyes," and now we  know that some of the Balkan States are about  to enter on the side of the Allies. No, timid  reader, the British statesmen are not asleep. It  is characteristic of them to suffer, nay,' to invite,  abuse in silence, but, at the same time to work  out their plans. Our duty now is������ to refrain  from senseless criticism and give our ungrudging  support to our leaders, and we may repose absolute confidence in Asquith, Grey, Kitchener,  Balfour, Lloyd George, Carson and their colleagues. Nor can we forget our own noble  Frime Minister,^, Sir Robt. Borden; he, too. has  measured up to the herculean tasks laid on his  shoulders.  INDIRECT AND  VICIOUS TAXATION  THERE   HAS   GROWN  UP   in   this  province  around the administration of the law courts.  around the registration of land titles, around  the division or subdivision of pieces of land to  suit the purposes of the owners and of the purchasers, such a wall of fees to the government,  fees to government officials, to municipal clerks,  and agents, fees to land surveyors and so on -  and So on, that perhaps British Columbia is  more mulcted for fees than any other province  of the Dominion, or perhaps any other part of  the British Empire.  It is the intention of the Cail to publish, a  series of articles dealing with these matters,  and to get as far as possible, action on the  part of its readers towards remedying these  things.  In doing these things the Call risks something, for it cannot be but that in holding up  to the light musty old abuses which have clustered around the - executive offices of the province, there will be ill will stirred. We think  therefore, that it is only fair to expect of the  readers of the Call that practical support which  up to this time they have hesitated to give.  Much encouragement has been given to the  Call in the way of. verbal appreciation. But this  does not pay the wages of the boys who are  working at the linotype and at the presses. The  small annual subscription of One Dollar would  not count greatly to the reader, but many of  them count greatly in the issuing of the Call.  The advertisers also will find if they have  failed hitherto to do so that a good display ad.  in a paper such as the Call which is carefully  read and passed along to others, has proportionately greater effect than a similar ad. which  is lost among the other display ads. of the  daily, which is glanced over and cast aside.  Therefore it will both help the business men  and the Call to have a good share of advertising  in  these  columns;      ,  AVe are n^ot guessing here, we have the testimony of many thoughtful readers that the Call  is ooked for eagerly by them, is read from end  to end, ads. and all, and is then passed on.  Said one learned gentleman, whose" name we  have not authority to give, J read the Call with  the greatest interest. I find the articles on the  Thpvementsof "the ^s^v^d" bif the war, etc., the  strongest and clearest which are being published  in the city.  We pass the compliment on to the gentlemen  who are giving this service to the Call, but we  recommend it to the consideration of the advertisers.  Further, we have installed a full plant of  the best printing machinery and equipment, and  in order to keep this plant running we need  to have job printing in considerable quantities. Remember, we are employing the home boys  arid we want to keep  them  going full time.  You may not have a great" deal of printing  to do individually. But you-" are many, and  many littles make much. We, therefore, ask you  to remember the boys at the. Call presses, and  when you have an item of. printig to do, bring  it or send it along. It will help to swell the  volume of employment in the office.  Thus aided, we shall make it the policy of  this paper to strike at the many accretions  which^encuniber^theprbgr^ of; theHpwviiit^X  which endanger the life of the government of  the province, which hindrs and in many cases  prevents the success of individual enterprise in  ,the province, which hinders and in many cases  greater financial liabilities than this paper carries dare not tackle. It would be financial ruin  to many of them to do so.  A HUNDRED YEARS OF PEACE  THERE WAS a large gathering at the boundary  line on Sunday last between White Rock  and Blaine for a flag raising and other  ceremonies celebrating the hundred years of  peace. This is refreshing amongst the constant  thought and news of war. But why should we  shout over that after all? It would be next  door to civil war to have trouble between  Cana'da and America. And nations do not celebrate the absence of civil war, they take it for  granted.  Alter all, we thank God for the sanity  and justice of the great people who are our  neighbors. With their great numbers they could  have made matters uncomfortable for us in  many ways. But they have been a big brother  tor us all these years.  -True, they have been rather blustery once in  a while, ( but that is the way with big brothers. On the whole we are the better because  we have grown up under their shadow, and  have been partakers of their racial strength in  pact, though, of course, we have in a larger  degree been partners of the strength of the  mother land.  What the future has for the two divisions  of this race in America we may not say as yet.  But we have the well grounded thought that  as all the world is realigning itself on racial  lines, there will be a closer alignment between  America and Britain in the century which is  to  come.  As we have said before we are of the opin  ion that there are now forces let loose which  wil! throw us closer together whether we will  or  no.  The world is always ready to step aside for  the man who knows where he is going. j-������ti.������A; ^-^'^JA^^^jTr^^T^^^iTj^^i^T.  THE WESTERN  CALL  Friday, July 9, 1915  In a previous issue we gave a  running outline of some of the  possibilities and natural resources  of the immense unexploited territory that lies to the north of  our great Canadian west, and it  is our intention from time to time  to take up some of the special  features that may be of interest  to those who may not be familiar with this great land.  A king of northern waters���������the  Mackenzie river, is one of the  longest and broadest streams in  the world. It drains an area of  nearly seven hundred thousand  square miles, and its basin is  situated beside a great mountain chain.for a distance of near  ly one thousand three hundred  miles. Two of its principal tributaries, Laird and Peace rivers,  pierce the Rocky mountains  and drain large areas beyond,  w,hile the third, the Athabasca,  originates in the heart of the  range, and is confined entirely ^o  the eastern slope. The country  from which the Mackenzie river  draws its supplies is.of the most  varied description and includes  part of the broken plateau region west of the Rocky Mountains, the' mountains themselves  for nearly A thousand miles, the  northern part of the prairie district, and the. wooded and moss-  covered country which' succeeds  it towards the Arctic ocean, while,  tribute is also drawn from a wide  belt of rough Laurentian country on the east, and from portion   of   the   "Barren   Lands."  From Great Slave Lake to the  sea the Mackenzie is an imposing stream, averaging about a  mile in width with occasional expansions for long distances to  twice this size. It is characterized by the comparative purity  of its water, by its long straight  reaches and by the absence of  sudden bends. Its valley usually  shallow, follows closely all the  sinuosities of the stream without  the intervention of large flats.  Clusters of islands obstruct its  channel in a number of places,  and are met with at intervals  all the way down, while ranges  of lofty mountains run parallel  closely with it for part of its  course, and form a fitting background to this king of northern  waters.  The silent sweep of the mighty  river opposite Fort Simpson,  where the main channel is a mile  wide, the velocity of its current  in average stages of the water is  about four miles an hour. The  banks of the valley appear low  owing to the great size of the  river, but in reality often have a  height of two hundred feet or  over. The appearance of "this part  of. the Mackenzie and of the unending spruce forests which border it, is monotonous and uninteresting, and is only relieved bv  the majestic sweep of a river of  this magnitude.  Slave river, which discharges  the water of Lake Athabasca  and Peace river into Great Slave  Lake,   is   practically   an    upper  Rennie's Seeds and All Kinds of Seed Potatoes  and Feed Store  1547 Main Street  , ^ Our Specialty  Potatoes and All Kinds of Vegetables  Free City  Delivery  Phone: Fairmont 2144.

As Mackenzie river itself is the  outstanding geographical feature  of the country, it is the main  channel of communication, and as  all settlements are situated upon  its banks or those of its tributaries, an idea of distances along  this gigantic waterway may be  a useful guide. Beginning at  Fort Smith, on Slave river, on the  Alberta northern boundary line,  and proceeding north to Fort  McPherson on the delta at the  mouth of the Mackenzie, the total distance, all of which is navigable, is over one thousand two  hundred and seventy miles. From  Fort Smith down to Fort Resolution, 190 miles, from there to  Fort Providence 167 miles, Fort  Simpson 148 miles, Fort Wrig-  ley 134 miles, Fort Norman 180  miles, Fort Good Hope 169 miles  and to Fort McPherson 275 miles.  The most of these settlements  had from three to seven hundred  inhabitants last Dominion census at the posts and surrounding  districts, including white and red.  Navigation of the Mackenzie  has been carried on for many  years by the Hudson's Bay Com-  oany,and the old pioneer steamer  "Wrigley" used to make on an  average of eight miles an hour  for the UP and down trips between Fort Smith and Fort McPherson, about ten and a quarter  miles an hour on the down, arid  about six miles on the up stream  trips. It is pretty certain that  vessels drawing seven or eight  ?eet of water can navigate from  the delta of the Mackenzie to the  "apids on Great Slave river above  Fort Smith, a distance of over  one thousand three hundred  miles. The captain of the steamer "Wrigley" said that the  shallowest water found by him in  any part of the river in what  he considered the channel, was  3leven feet.  It is claimed that there is a  grand total of at least three  housand four' hundred miles of  vater iri the Mackenzie basin, all  navigable, except for eighteen  miles, at two points, one a rapid two miles long on the Peace  Kver, and.the other Sixteen Mile  Rapid on Great Slave river.  Hudson's Bay steamers ply on  "he upper and lower Peace, and  the upper and lower Athabasca  rivers. \  The season of navigation is  prom about the first or second  week in May to about the first or  second week inv November.  There are many landmarks, tributaries and points of interest  ������������������.hat: present themselves in the  long course of this great river  to the sea. Here a wide expansion of the river forms a lake  ten or twelve miles long and  nearly as broad, and there another mighty river sweens in from  the side. The chief. oXthese,. perhaps, is Little Lake^ just below  ^ort, Providence and at Fort  Norman, where Great Bear river  enters. This river drains the great  'nke of the ( same name that  drains  an  immense  territory  to  the east. At Sans Sault rapid,  above Fort Good Hope, the river  ns nearly a mile and a half wide.  The rapids are all on one side  and are caused by a ledge of  rocks extending partially across  the river. The captain of the  "Wrigley" reported deep water  in the channel at the edge of  the ledge, and the steamer had  no serious trouble in ascending.  In very low water it is said  that this rock is scarcely covered. Not far below these rapids  is the celebrated "Ramparts of  the Mackenzie." In smaller rivers and in more southern parts  of the country they would be  called a "canyon." For some  distance above the ramparts the  river is expanded beyond its usual size, but here suddenly contracts to' about five hundred  yards in width, and bending to  the east runs for three or four  miles between vertical walls \ of  limestone and shale, which gradually expand in width towards  the lower end. At the upper end  of the gorge, the abounding cliffs  are a hundred and twenty-five  feet in height, but increase towards the lower end to about  two hundred and., fifty feet. The  current is steady on account of.  the great depth of water. In low  water a considerable current occurs near the head. Ice jams  sometimes occur in the spring and  the damned-back water is, said to  have risen on one occasion over  a hundred feet. ���������/"  At the delta of the Mackenzie  where the river branches at the  upper end of the branch on  which Fort McPherson is situated, the main channel is three-  quarters of a mile wide, but it is  only one of four, there being  four large islands there. The  whole width of the river cannot  be less than three or four miles.  A north wind raises quite a swell  here and the salty odor of the  sea air is quite perceptible above  the delta.  There is no water power on the  Mackenzie below Fort Smith, on  the main stream. Along Athabasca river there is very big water  power. On Slave river there are  about sixteen miles of rapids,  which constitute the interruption  to navigation, and it wouldmake  excellent water power. There is  also_ much water power to be had  on its numerous other tributaries that flow in at intervals all  the way down to the sea.  There are inexhaustible supplies of fish and the wealth of  the Mackenzie country in fresh  water fish may be said to be a  tradition. The numerous lakes  and streams tributary to the Mackenzie may be said to literally  teem with fish of every variety.  The Arctic grayling is deserving  of special "mention. It is an excellent fish resembling the trout  in appearance and size, and has  a very large back fin.

The wealthy provinces of  the By/atine empire, already-falling to pieces, and divided by  strife among their rulers, lay  before him. As he stood on the  shore of the Bosphorus lie could  see the domes and, palaces of  Constantinople. This was a quarry well worthy of. pursuit. He  had already, prepared the way by  moral force. The firm and equitable government of the Turk  had produced a strong impression  upon the Greeks of Asia, who  found themselves better off, more  lightly taxed and far more efficiently protected, tluin they were  under the ��������� rule of the Byantime  emperor, whose persistent and  perfidious intrigues, joined to'the  insensate .-jealousies of the nobles," and the demands of foreign mercenaries, put any, approach to good and impartial  ffovernment out of the question.  During the twenty years of peace  there had been a friendly understanding between Orkhan and the  Emperors Andronicus and Canta-  cuzenus. but an opportunity soon  occurred which enabled Orkhan's  army to take the field.

The Venetians,  who were destined for centuries  to be the most determined foes  of the Turks, had, the writer continues, "already aroused Orkhan .'s anger, and he lost no time  in giving his support to their  rivals. Out of. this alliance came  the first entrance of the Turk  upon European, soil. Suleyman  Pasha, Orkhan's eldest son, who  had already operated with success in the Balkan provinces,  crossed the Hellespont on a couple of rafts, with eighty followers, and surprised the castle of  Tzympe. In a few days it was  garrisoned by 3,000 Ottoman soldiers." By this small beginning  the Ottoman had won their foothold in Europe. Gallipoli was  soon in their hands, and the shore  of the Hellespont garrisoned by  Turkish soldiers.  Destiny  A sergeant of a Scottish regiment is a firm believer in destiny. No amount of argument  can shake his belief in the slightest, he invariably closing the controversies that "when a man's  last day comes it comes." The  evening before the battle at  Mons, when preparing to take a  stroll, he was noticed by a corporal, a persistent opponent of  the destiny theory to quietly slip  a revolver into has pocket.  ���������XHellp ?lVjshouted;the_ corporal,  who saw a, chance of ridiculing  the sergeant, "What are you taking the revolver for?

Seldom have I listened to, a  better discourse. It was entirely  without bitterness or bias. The  worst of it is when a Roman Catholic is confronted with the simple truths he is apt to call the person who utters that truth a bigot.  More   especially   do   I   agree,  with the Rev. gentleman when he  said, "It will .be a bad day if  ever the Orange body becomes a  tool of any political party.  ���������V *   ���������  "Since the Lusitania was destroyed the United States have let  it be known to Germany that  they would on a recurrence of  such an outrage against humanity draw the sword at the side  of the allies. Since that time activities of the submarines have  been restricted."  I should like to point put to the  writer of the above that since the  Lusitania disaster we have lost  twice the number pf ships and  four times the amount of tonnage  for the six weeks just ended than  we did in the six weeks previous.  .That the United States would  ever draw the sword on the side  of the allies at present is very  questionable. Internal affairs, in  my opinion, would never" allow  her to do so, and with Pontius  Pilate Bryan at the head of a big  peace party it is out of the question. Of course, I have not been  permitted to see the German reply, but I do not think the Germans take the protest of. the  United States seriously, especially if Dr. Dernberg has informed  his masters of the famous "too  proud to fight" utterance. The  only way in which Uncle Sam  can help the allies is in the way  of munitions, and as he is unable  to supply any to Germany or  Austria he supplies them to the  allies, but more for the sake of  the dollar than any other consideration.

One of them evidently  knew the smell, for he said to  his friend, "What a smell of rotten onions."  *   *   ���������   ���������   .'  The Navy  There are scores of men growling about the inactivity of the  navy. There are hundreds who  are so thick-headed that they  cannot see that it has done anything.  In point of fact, what the navy  has achieved in the present war  is wonderful, surpassing anything  that we had a right to expect  from it. Perhaps the most eloquent tribute that has been paid  to its supremacy was the recent  address of Admiral Von Koster  to the German Navy League���������(I  once saw Admiral Von Koster at  the German Club in Shanghai,  and I must admit if Germany  had as many dreadnaughts as the  aallant Admiral had empty beer  bottles in front of. him, we should  stand a very poor chance)���������to  continue. The admiral's object  seems to have been to apologize  for the failure of the German  high seas fleet. He explained that  if the German fleet were to engage Admiral Jellicoe's fleet it  might be entirely destroyed, and  though it would doubtless destroy enemy ships to at least its  own number, the result would be  to leave the enemy with still a  strong fleet and Germany with  none, when there would be no  longer anything to prevent a  British landing on the German  coast.  This speech was evidently designed to break gently to the  German people that they can no  longer expect the high seas fleet  to perform anything much in the  present war.  Whatever the motives of the  speech, that is what Germany has  got to understand. Only one thing  has the German fleet attempted  against this country in eleven  months' war���������the raiding of  coast towns���������undefended towns  by choice���������by battle cruisers.  Von Koster's speech seems to indicate that the fate of the last of  these attempts has taught the  German admiralty that the game  was not worth a ball of spun-  yarn. The German Admiralty  have also learnt something else.  Before the war, and in its first  stages, they counted openly upon  gradually wearing down the British fleet by " attrition'' until its  strength was reduced to the point  at which their own battleships  could come out and engage it  with the .hope Of victory. That  expectation has proved another  of the innumerable delusions- on  which Germany has been fed.  Mines-and submarines have done  damage, but we are turning out  ships a great deal faster than  we are losing them, and to-day  sees us with a greater preponderance of naval strength^ than  we held when war was declared.  Gone is the imperial boast of  the'' Admiral of the Atlantic "of  Germany's future on the sea, that  Germany would have nothing to  fear from the greatest naval  power. The toasting in the Ward  Boom of "The Day." Instead of  such brag and bluster, we haye  the great high seas fleet���������modestly reduced to a humble but effective instrument of defence  against���������what?

'y/AM  mm  mmSm  DEVELOPMENT IN THE  PEACE RIVER COUNTRY  Approved  A manufacturer in, Hamburg,  who had been tremendously  busy from the very beginning of  the war, putting on the market  all sorts of possible and impossible contrivances for the use of  the active defenders of the Fatherland, lately sent to the proper military experts in Berlin a  model of a bullet proof waistcoat, but of which he hoped to  make a fortune.  The War Office's Department of  Tests returned the model with  the following communication:  "Your alleged^ bullet proof  waistcoat was submitted to proof  under musketry fire. We recommend that you use your best efforts to place a supply of these  waistcoats abroad in one or more  of. the 'countries now at war with  Germany."  Mr. H. L. Propst, of Vanrena,  Alberta, who has just made the  first shipment of wheat out of. the  Peace River country to the Winnipeg market, is one of the pio--  neers of that great^ fertile district, which is now linked up  with the main line of the Grand  Trunk Pacific by the building of  the Edmonton, Dunvegan and  British Columbia Railway.  * 'When grain reached the price  it was this winter," says    Mr.  Propst, "I saw where it was possible to haul the grain and just  as soon as the steel was laid to  end of grade I started my teams.  Had we been two days later we  would have lost the chance as the  snow was practically all gone by  the time we reached,the end of  steel. In crossing the Peace River,  the gorge is some 700 feet; deep,  and it required' doubling on the  hill, and as it was getting bare  of snow it required seven teams  tb -get the heaviest loads up the  hill, which is one and one-half  miles long.   It took seven days  for  the  trip  from Vanrena  to  Peace River Lauding. The wheat  will realize about 80 cents per  bushel all clear, after expenses  are paid."  "For two years our nearest  railway station was Edmonton,  and all our supplies we were com-  ^-yjM4Ww  ..,X'X������^4'jf  pelled to haul from that poii_fe'?������w$^  500 miles distant, and it aU hii.dlili������  to be done'in the, winter;-Nowpi^Sf  we have all  ences   here, _ , _.,.,,,���������  transportation-by "teams of eveijplf^f^  thing.

ORANGEMEN'S DAY  VANCOUVER ORANGEMEN and their brethren from many parts of the province will  meet next Monday to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne. Last year the  gathering was in Victoria, but Vancouver is the  meeting place this year, and Brockton Point will  be the terminus of the parade. There was some  thought of holding no celebrations hi Canada  this year owing to the war, but it was decided  to observe the day as usual, and give it a distinctly ' Imperial and patriotic tone. This will  be welcome news, not only to members of the  order, but to many others who hold in high  esteem the aims and ideals of Orangeism.  The Order is very strong in Canada, and has  played a splendid part in the life of the Dominion. Distinctly Protestant in faith, it has  steadily resisted all efforts to extend the power  of the Church of Rome in Canada, and though  ordinarily its members belong to different political camps, the united strength of all has more  than once been used to defeat a goyernment of  either party if it was feared that the program  of that government menaced the Protestant religion.  Of splendid value, too, from the standpoint  of those who believe that the best interests  of Canada are identical with those of the Mother Country has been the high Imperial ideal  which the Order has ever maintained. Orangemen claim no monopoly on patriotism. They  have not been alone in the work, but they  have done their "bit" in forging those chains  which bind the Dominion and the Mother Country as one. >  The "Call" extends its best wishes to the  Order on the "Glorious Twelfth," and many  whose names are found on no lodge roll-book  will join in thought with those who celebrate  a,n annivef-sary which marks an epoch in British  History and a forward step in religious liberty  throughout  the world.  TOT UNUMTOOYWUNt  TOOBjiEM OF VAWOUVEB  AGAIN WE CALL ATTENTION to this matter.  At this time of the year there is a minimum  of suffering. People can, if need be, sleep  out and take no harm. Fuel is not required  for heating purposes. Light is at a maximum  as far as daylight, is concerned, and at a minimum as far as outlay is concerned.  Clothing is not required for purposes of  warmth, and the lack of abundance of food is  not as much felt "as would be the case in cold  ^weatherx-=---  -   --^.^^-.-^,=^-,^ _^___._^____  Further, employment is at a maximum at this  season,of  the  year.  But the cold weather is coming, and the  needs of the winter. What is to be done.  What is being done to meet  the case ?  Thus far there has been no effort except to  turn the property of the  people of Vancouver.  itself, at this time, non-revenue producing, into  cish by way  of debenture issues, and to spend  - the sums, realized  in non-productive work.  Never, perhaps, has the city and province  shown in its elected representatives such an utter lack  of in iti.iti vo.  Why in the name of common sense is there  not some effort made to produce supplies by  the labor of the unemployed?  There are plenty of'fish. Why not ..'atch  and   cure   them ?  There is plenty of land. Whv. no:, borrow a  hundred or a thousand aeres a-ul raise peas,  and hvi\r\s on it. and other foods, and store the  produce to feed the hungry in the winter.  Above all. why the criminal negligence which  allowed the Great Northern Railway the privil-  ���������    ejre  of.  defcrrinc  the   work  the   citv  had   bon-  used them   so richly to do, when the doing it  now   would  have   given   employment   and  put  money in circulation at  the time of the city's  greatest need.  We suggest mass meetings to discuss this,  as there will otherwise be no action taken by  the council, which has not the pocketbook of  the ratepayers, the only means of supply in view.  AT THE FRONT  NEVER PERHAPS has there been such uncertainty  in   the   minds  of  the  people   as  to  the events which are transpiring on the various battle fronts.  It is certain that there are great events  transpiring. .  But there is the fact that the authorities  are determined that there shall be as little information conveyed to the enemy through the  papers as possible.  The papers, on the contrary, are determined  to "get by" with all the information that it is  possible to obtain and publish it no matter  what the results of the publication.  The resultant "views" from day to day  foi'ms a strange medley. Underneath all this  there are great events going on and by watching the things which cannot be hidden a good  guess may now af������d then be made, but beyond^  that  there is, little to be said.  As to the western front the allies are doing  a  little  more  than  holding their  own.  The impationce of, the man on the street  would demand that there should be progress  made. He cannot look upon the war but as  a struggle to gain a certain goal. When, therefore, the armies are found all winter and all  summer thus far stalemated to-all appearances  along the sanae lines he grows impatient.  But apparently the leaders are not impatient.  A good guess afe the explanation is this. The  present desire of the allies is to. weaken the  numbers of the Teuton horde, and to reduce the  volume of their supplies. v  It is the desire to do this with the least  possible expenditure of. men and supplies by the  allies. .... _   ���������  It is further the desire of the allies to allow the enemy to bring as few effective weapons  into   play  as   possible.  New German machine guns and artillery are  effective, but the ,most ^effective weapon they  have is the strategical system of railways within the German border.  The same may be said of the French railways up to the French border.  Now, good strategy would seem to say that  the' allies should do their work of attrition  away from the German railways and resting on  the allies lines. This they are doing, and while  this phase of the work is being done, it is likely  tliat the allies do not intend to push the Germans back away from the French railways  and on to the  German lines.  The same may be said of the Russians. They  pushed the Germans back on their own and  Austria's lines;' and found that the advantage  thus given the Teutons made the battle unequal.  They have retired. Whether they could have  avoided the retirement we do not know. But  that the retirement has brought them back on  their own lines and the Teutons away from  theirs is so. The results appear to have advantaged Russia and to have disadvantaged the  Teutons already.       v  Now, having got them there what they will  be able to do with them is the question. We  bope to see the "tables turned and perhaps we  jmall.  BO. TIBS FOB INPJA  THE HON W. R. ROSS has received information from the Agent General for British Columbia to the effect that the cargo of i60,-  000 creosoted Douglar fir ties shipped to India  to the order of the Bengal and North Western  Railway last^fallper the seamer "Queen Helena" have arrived and have given full satisfaction. . ���������    x  The ties are described in the words of the  agents in India as being "an all-round good lot  well cut,'of full dimensions and well creosoted."  The Agent General goes on to say that he  has been requested to convey the thanks of the  Railway. Board in London to the government  of British Columbia for undertaking the inspection and despatch of the ties.  It will be remembered that this order was  secured for the province as a result of strenuous  efforts on the part of the Minister of Lands,  and the Agent General in-co-operation with the  Canadian Trade Commissioner, in London, the  Railway Company stipulating that the B. C.  government undertake the inspection oi: the ties  before shipment.  Further orders for the Indian railways were  in prospect, but the Iaelc of tonnage has caused them to be held in abeyance;; there is every  hope, however, that when the shipping offers,  those orders will be placed, the success of the  trial order leading naturally to further business.

Signature  Residence  Occupation  To celebrate the hundred years  of peace between the countries of  Great Britain and the United States  of America, a ceremony to make  the event was conducted on Sunday, July the Fourth, at which  prominent men of the Pacific Coast  officiated.  " The celebration was held under  the auspices of. the Pacific Highway Association, and the first men-  ton was made at the 4th annual  convention which took place in Vancouver on August llth to 13th,  1913:     -  At the close of the convention  a meeting was held in the Progress  Club Chambers on Hastings Street,  and a committee appointed consisting ' of members of the Pacific  Highway Association, and the Van-  I couver Automobile Club, the object being to raise subscriptions  for the erection of a memorial arch  at the International Boundary near  Blaine. 6wing to unforseen circumstances, sufficient money. was not  forthcoming, and it was decided to  celebrate the occasion by a flag  raising, the question of a suitable  memorial being left over for further  consideration.  The Vancouver Automobile Club  have been working on the details  of the celebration in conjunction  with the officials of the Pacific  Highway Association, with the rW  suit that the honours of the success of the function are equally  shared by the two organizations,  and a large percentage of the costs  were bourne by the club.  Invitations to be present were  sent out. by the club to its members, the ministers, and members  of the provincial government, the  foreign consulate and to the public  institutions in the city, with the  result that a large gathering, comprising ciizens of this country, and  of. the United States of America  we're present to take part in the  ceremony.  .At tw-o o'clock Mr. Samuel Hill,  the president of the Highway Association, mounted the erected platform, which was occupied by those-  invited and introduced the Rev.  Robert C. Hartley, of Blaine, who  delivered an impressive invocation,  followed by Mayor Fuller, of Blaine,  who delivered a welcome to those  present. Mr. Samuel Hill, in reply, addressed the -gathering in the  course of which he declared that  the nations of the earth should  walk in peace, and safety, charg  ing his hearers to consecrate their  fortunes and if necessary their lives  to prevent their heritage being  taken from them. The Rev. Dr. John  Hall, delivered what was probably  as stirring an address' as has been  heqrd in this part of the Dominion.  ' He said the refusal of the fathers of the United States to be  taxed without representation and  to be governed by a power three  thousand miles away meant the beginning of a wiser and truer colonial policy which has produced the  British empire and the most wonderful aggregation of. states held  to gather. ���������, Vby _sen ti ment._ and__ aft' ec-  tion alone. He referred to the war-  of 1812, which, he said, resulted  from bad blood and misunderstanding. The treaty of Ghent was unique in that it left untouched the  questions which were supposed to  have caused the war and was forced upon the commissioners by  awakened public' sentiment on both  sides. For a hundred years the  spirit which gave rise to this treaty  had kept it inviolate along a frontier of 3,240 miles, and there had  never been a single fort or a single  armed sentry.  Principal Mackay made brief reference to the war, saying that  Canadians believe their Avhole-sonl-  ed participation in it is thoroughly  consistent with a passionate desire  for peace. "We are staking our  last dollar and our last man on this  desperate struggle, because we believe that all that is highest and  best in our Christian civilization is  at stake." While allelic world is  under the shadow of. a great war.  it was very fitting they should  glory in that for a hundred years  ; we have had unbroken peace, the  ]' finest peace achievement of the ages.  "This   is   a   triumph   for   democracy," he said.    "The hope of the  race is in democracy.    It is the one  guarantee that some  day war will  be   impossible."   lie   predicted   the  passing of., autocracy and the present war may see  its  end.   "The  ���������way to secure peace is to-be pre-  | pared for war," Dr. Mackay characterized as a "hoary lie."        The  celebration of the occasion, he said,  was a triumph for open diplomacy  \ as against secret plotting. He closed  '! hi������    address    with    the    quotation.  i "Behold, how good and how becoming it is for brothers to  dwell together in. unity."  Mr. E. A.

SCOTSMAN AND PRUSSIAN  The .following story is reprinted from, the Manchester Guardian, and comes from the fight  at  Ypres:  War is applying its searching  test of character to everyone who  is in the firing line, and many  men have discovered that the  greatest susprises of the whole  business were in themselves and  their own conduct. A very curious instance of this was told by  an officer in a Scottish regiment  who was home on leave. He was  a serious and brilliant, student,  who had no idea of. soldiering till  the war began. His story was  something like this. It was at the  time of the big show at Ypres  in October, when the Prussian  Guard almost broke through our  lines. When at last they were  brought up and began to retreat  my friend was in the* countercharge. He found his revolver  empty and snatched up a rifle  with a bayonet and rushed on  with his men. He remembered  clearly charging a big Prussian,  who put up his hands. The  Scotsman   swerved,   but   as. he  passed he saw with the corner  of his eye one of the Prussian's  hands coming down to/ his pocket  so he swung round and ran him  through, and then rushed on. As  he ran he found himself thinking that he had done wrong;  perhaps the man meant nothing,  perhaps his hand was hit by a  bullet���������there might be scores of  explanations. He described the  thought as running round and  round in his head, "I shouldn't  have done that, I shouldn't have  dene it, and the spite of himself  was very unhappy but all the  time was killing other Prussians  and fighting all he knew. When  the charge pulled up he could  not do anything but go back and  search for the big Prussian to  ease his torment of mind. He  found him-at last with his hand  in his pocket, in which was the  revolver. Then he felt at peace  and his Scots conscience was silenced.  A royal school of infantry instruction will be opened at West,  Point barracks, Victoria, commencing on July 19th.

Name  Address  PEACE CENTENAEY  CELEBRATION AT BLAINE  (Continued from page 4)  Ition, then presented the British flag  which was presented by the citizens of Victoria (which will be  raised by the customs officer at  the boundary, Mr. A. K. Westiand,  each day on the flag pole erected  by the Vancouver Automobile Club,  which bears the inscription on a  brass plate, Erected by, the Vancouver Automobile Club in commemoration of. the Peace Centenary,  July 4th, 1915), stating that when  the flag needed replacing the citizens of his eity would supply another. ,'���������*'"  The flag was then handed to  three American citizens, Messrs. J.  Donovan, Frank Terrance and  |J. B. Leon, who raised it to the  top of the pole, during which the  musicians who gave' their services  and were furnished with transportation by the club, rendered the National  Anthem.  This part of the proceedings received a great ovation, which was  continued for some time.  Judge Thomas Burke, representing Ernest Lister, the governor of  Washington, followed with a well  delivered speech' in the course of  which he said there was never  peace which was not founded upon  justice, and although there were  several roads leading to war, there  was only one to peace, and that  was, justice.  Mr_ Frank Branch Riley, who is  known as the silver-tongued orator  of   the Pacific   coast,   representing  James   Withycombe,   Governor   of  Oregon, in an address which held  his hearers captivated, ��������� spoke of. the  time   when   the   Pacific   Highway  would connect Alaska with the farthest part of the mainland on South  America, a  highway  consisting  of  [one continued stretch of road open  to   automobile   travel     along    the  whole of the western coast of the  western    hemisphere    north     and  south.   He   emphasized   that     the  whole -of- the people of the United States were agbnizeed observers  |of the awful struggle now taking  jplace   in   which   citizens   of   both  countries now assisting in a peace  celebration were taking part in the  firing  line,  not   on   the   side  that  might   is   right,   but   that   justice  [was seeking to  maintain right. In  the course of his address he introducer  several   humorous   incidents  similar  to   the   following:   There  was once an Englishman  (he said  jit was an Englishman)   who came  to visit Canada, and in due course  returned  to   New   York.    (It jwas  not recorded whether that was his  home) but he was asked what he  had seen.   He was unable to give  any   definite   information,   so   was  asked  if he  had  visited  Victoria.  If so, what had he seen there that  occupied  his   particular   attention.  Well, says he, I saw nothing there  but rain and boosters. There was a  Canadian standing near who overheard the conversation, and turning  to the^sjghtse:er^\^jcema,rke6,.._Sa yH  you want to go  to :-������,well the  other place) there ain't any rain or  (boosters there.  On behalf of the state of Oregon, Mr. Riley presented the stars  Jand stripes, which 'was handed to  Messrs. F'. R. McD. Russell, hon.  president, H. W. White, vice-president, and Mr. S. Gintzburger, of  the Vancouver Automobile Club,  who raised it to the top of. the  pole, the gift of the citizens of  Blaine.

The American National Anthem wasV rendered by the combined; bands of Blaine  and Vancouver during the raising  of the flag.  Dr.'.James B. B,ullitt, speaking oh  behalf nf Hiram Johnson, governor  of California, in the course of his  ���������'*",.--"/'.. .'������������������..  address, spoke of the peaceful relationship existing between the adjoining countries of the ;, North  American continent, which had held  good for a full'.,century of time,  wiiicii had called for, the celebration those present were then taking part in and which would undoubtedly continue ������ and would result in a full understanding ^of  what the val\je of. peace between  nations meant.  Consul Abe, the representative of  Japan in Vancouver, speaking on  behalf of his government, said it  was rather singular for his country  to be assisting in a peace celebration between the countries of Great  Britain and the United States of  America, but that his country was  closely allied to the former country, and considering that the celebration was in commemoration of  100 years of peace, it was only  right that as the representative of  his country he should be present  to endorse and assist in such \a  great and notable event. \V  In bringing the ceremony to a  close, President Hill made the suggestion that a marble arch to be a  lasting memorial of the occasion be  at a future time erected on the  present spot, and a resolution to  that effect was proposed by Mr. J.  J. Donovan, of Bellingham, and seconded by Mayor Gray, of New  Westminster.  Communications regretting inability to attend the. ceremony were  received by the club, one from The  Hon. Lieut. Governor of the Province, who received the ) invitation  too."late.to make the necessary ar-  rangemnts to. be present, and one  from the Attorney General, who  had made a previous engagement  for the day.

The same resolution called for,  the creation of a sufficiently  large tariff on fruit to protect  the Canadian market from the  j dumping of the surplus products  of. the States. .  ��������� Another resolution filed for  debate was  one  calling for the  creation of wholesale auction fruit  markets in prairie cities.  The convention has for its object the solving of the British  Columbia problem, an acute one,  the consumer on'the prairie provinces paying dearly for produce  for which the grower frequently  gets below cost.  Prince Edward Island has been  under prohibition since 1907. The  premier of the island province  stated recently: "We have practically no crime here now.

Seymour: 5408-5409  The hundreds of women and  girls employed in the various  parts of the big Panama Exposition at San Francisco are finding a friend in the Y.W.C.A. The  Association has a building in the  grounds, which provides in its  cafeteria good food for sightseers and in its rest room a quiet  place after the rush of the exhibition. 5 But the association is laying special stress on what can  be done for the women and girls  who work so hard in the exhibits, restaurants, and amusement  places. Over six hundred calls a  month are made, and the girls  and women are invited to friendly parties in the Association  building. At Easter a bouquet  with an Easter card attached  was given to each girl in the  Zone, the amusement quarter.  They were received with touching gratitude. The association also  gives the names of girls who express a church preference to  church workers, so that they may  be looked after.  Society Organized on Practical  Lines Starts Big Movement for  Production and Prosperity.  Great gaps and frightful holes  are being torn in the structure of  civilization by this colossal war,  but already a process of splendid  rebuilding has begun. In every  country there are influences gathering force which will bring a  neAV era to the world! Recklessness, extravagance, greed, artificial gayety, are being consumed  as never before in ,the flames of  battle, and when these die away  the sun of peace will shine upon  peoples chastened and possessed  of a new humanity and efficiency.  This will be true, of course, in  British Columbia. A riper,  wiser spirit is developing^ and  we believe that one of. its manifestations is the British Columbia  Consumers' League.  The province is facing, at last,  the problem of self-support, and  tlie primary purpose of the league is to help give it strength to  gain a solid footing of independence and prosperity.  Importing too Much  In the dnerry times of "easy  money," when we forgot the future and neglected production  almost altogether, we let immense sums leave British Columbia for imported articles. In  1913, the amount was $37,000,-  000, or over $123,000 for every  business day. The sum now is  not so large, but conservative estimates show that we are still  financially bleeding1 from the follies of the past to the extent of  at least $20,000,000 a year, or  over $66,000 on each business  day. Such is the amount which  is being sent away for commodities which are or can be produced here at home. This is community inefficiency.  If continued, it would leave'  British Columbia far behind in  the new march of civilization.  The chief, object of the Consumers' League is to exert an influence to stop this vitiating process to keep as much as possible  of our money, the life-blood of  our prosperity in British Columbia arteries of circulation.  Objects of League  AH of the objects of the league,  as given in the constitution, are  as follows:  1. To promote British Columbia production in industrial, agricultural, mineral, and all other  useful lines.  2. To promote the preferential buying in British Columbia  of tbe goods and products, first,  of British Columbia; second, of  Canada; third, of the British Empire in general.  3. To bring producer and  consumer more closely together  for purposes of mutual benefit.  4. To insist upon purity and  healthfulness in foodstuffs, and  the maintenance of high standards in all British Columbia products.  6. To influence consumers to  pay cash, or if not, to pay bills  promptly.  7. To. influence consumers to  shop as early W" possibly and  regulate their buying so as to  keep deliveries as few as possible.  These objects vary, of course,  in importance. The most commanding of the group, from the  viewpoint of strengthening the  province, is to influence consumers to support British Columbia  production by buying 'British  Columbia products in all cases  where they are .as reasonable in  price and as high in quality as  the articles which are clamoring  to lure our money to other lands  and centres.  Not Class Movement.  This movement is in the interest  of no class. It is for British Columbia production and prosperity.  It is for the benefit of every family deriving the means of life  from this province, for the benefit of the men and women now  vainly seeking, work, and for the  soldiers, who, returning from  their heroic fight for British  freedom, will deserve at least to  find opportunities here to earn  their bread.  We who are far from the reach  of rending shrapnel, can do this  little for the home-coming of the  soldiers. It is a small part for  each consumer, but vital, because each is aj3 important as another, and the co-operation of all  in .-this cause will make a huge  difference in British Columbia's  readiness to extend a practical  welcome home to the men who  are now facing death to preserve  the empire.  The scope and great possibilities of the movement have inspired Mrs. J. C. Kemp, president  of the League, to give her time  and energy without stint to the  work, and her endeavours are receiving zealous aid from Mrs.  Ralph Smith> vice-president and  founder, and from other public  spirited women, as well as from  some men and business houses,  who are giving the league generous support. Mrs. Kemp has  been a leader for many years in  Vancouver in activities of high  progressiveness, and this is likewise true of Mrs. Smith, whose  reputation for useful work in the  public interests extends throughout the province. Under the guidance of such women, the league  which was organized about two  months ago, gives every promise  of steadily growing value.  Many Affiliated Societies  The organizations' now represented on the board of directors  are the Women's Forum, Local  Council     of     Women,    King's  Daughters j   Vancouver   District  W.C.T.U., South Vancouver Wo^  men's Forum, Women's Institute  of Central Park, Board of Trada,  B. C. Manufacturers' Association,A,  Vancouver Exhibition Association, Industrial Bureau, Retail  Merchants' Association, Retail  Grocers' Association.  We want now at least five thousand consumers to pledge themselves to support this movement  in their buying, and we want  workers to aid us enlist the consumers in an army for a fine conquest of peace and progress. If  you, the reader of this,, will reach  out to us a helping hand, we will  grasp it in gratitude, and with  our free hand will extend to  you, when the time comes, we  hope, an attractive prize for  worthy work.

THE WESTERN  CALL  SPORTING COMMENT  I What came 'in the form of a  brprise  was  the  announcement  ly Con Jones this week releasing  lis three eastern imports, Fitzger-  fld, Eoberts and Donihee.     The  |:ancouvers  have played six of  le scheduled games to date and  lave   won   one,   the   remainder  Toing  to  the  Salmonbellies.   To  Itrengthen the  team at the be-  rinning of the season the local  lianager    imported    the    above  Jhree players. He paid them on  I, per game basis out of his own  pocket, the balance of the team  uplifting the gates. The financial  |;nd of the  game has been far  prom what was anticipated, and  pith the hope of annexing the  nip  this year fast vanishing it  Ivvas the only sensible move for  liim to make. The three players  |aave not made any very material  lifference in the playing strength  lof the green shirts, and for the  ���������balance of the season the Van-  Icouvers  intend to  use their lo-  pal talent.    Fitzgerald and   his  nates    were    all    good    players, but there are just as good,  [judging from the form displayed,  Ion the local list, and the qual-  lity of the lacrosse should suffer  llittle as a result of their departure.  The Vancouvers won an exhibition game from the Salmonbellies  in Saturday last, the score be-  Kng 14 to 7. Pat Feeney was not  pn the red shirts, and just how  luch they tried to win can be  fudged from the fact that on one  )ccasion Bun Carke came up the  field and scored a goal. On Monday, morning the "Sun" came out  with the announcement that the  red shirts had gone back jand  had lost their snap. It. seems a  peculiar thing that any reporter  would try to gag the local fans  with bunk of that sort. Five  games out of six doesn't look  much as if they were slipping,  but then some reporters have to  be knocked down before they take  a tumble. The Vancouver team  has been playing a strong game  this season, but just a few per  cent lower than the red shirts.  On Saturday the.V. A. C. and  the New Westminster amateur  teams meet in the Royal City in  a league fixture. If the Royals  win they have practically got the  championship, which means the  Mann Cup, maybe, if Joe Lally  keeps on a-eoming with his talk.  The Royals are a formidable  bunch this year, and with the locals apparently not so strong as  of yore, the chances are poor for  Vancouver retaining the championship for another season.  Some time ago the announcement was made that the city of  Seattle would have a team in  the professional hockey league  next winter. Frank Patrick is  the moving spirit, and is behind  this announcement. He has been  in Seattle in connection with  the proposition, and the prospects are bright indeed for four  teams in the series next year. If  Vancouver Engineering Works, Ltd.

C.  this announcement materializes  it will eventually mean the passing of the Stanley cup, for with  a similar announcement coming  from eastern Canada of some of  the America teams being desirous of entering the eastern league  sooner or later the championship  will be won by an American  team. The Stanley Cup was presented for competition in Canada  and should an American team  grab the honors, it would mean  a new trophy. However, it is,  better for the game out here to  have a four-team league, and it  is certainly hoped that' the announcement of Seattle's new ice  rink will materialize before the  hockey season rolls around again.  * ���������   ���������  The Beavers are up against a  hard row this week. They are  playing Spokane at the Inland  Empire city, and to date have  received a decided drubbing. It  looks at this distance as' if the  Indians are the best bet for the  flag.  ��������� ���������   ���������  The Victoria Cub is now without a home and will for the remainder of the season be the property of the league. It seems a  great pity that the capital city  fans will pass up their franchise,  as it took them a long while to  get up sufficient courage to make  the plunge into baseball. Their  treatment of the franchise resembles their treatment of professional lacrosse. The capital  city fans have 'a greater liking  for tennis and golf than the more  aggressive pastimes of baseball  and lacrosse, and it seems a case  of don't disturb their slumbers  sweet, for they have the money  over there if they would only dig  down and come through with  some financial help for the ball  team. However, it might be a  little different after the election!  # ���������   ���������  The Crescent baseball team of  Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian church  has won the honors in the intermediate division of the City  Sunday School baseball league.  This is the second time for the  Crescents, and the boys have  played good ball all the way. It  is a good thing for young fellows  to play the game, but to play it  in a clean, sportsmanlike manner  is the ideal of sport, and this the  Crescent boys have reached. They  have deserved their honors and  are to be congratulated on their  ability.  ��������� ������������������������������������'  The Comets have won the senior division of the Sunday School  league, which closed last week.  # ������   ���������  The New Westminster Columbian came out on Tuesday with  something of a slam at Con Jones  for his lacrosse moA'e of this  week. As is now well known, the  three eastern players have been  handed their passports. They were  hired per game and on the understanding that at any time the  agreement-could be cut short.r In  the face of financial loss Jones had  the good sense to do what every  other business man is doing now-  adays, cut down expenses. Professional lacrosse with Con Jones  and with the New Westminster  boys, is a business pure and simple. There is little sporting love  in. any of them. It is a ease of  the dollars. The New Westminster scribe says Jones has quit  cold. Call it what he may, the  Fact is, that Jones knows when he  is making and losing money. He  has not four-flushed much in the  lacrosse business. In every case he  has had to pay the price for any  advertising he has obtained. And  if the season has been a bad one,  who suffers? Not Westminster.  When things go awry in the  camp of the Salmonbellies, they  quit cold more than once. Ahd  lest they forget over there, who  is it that has made money for the  red shirt men for years? Not  the citizens of. the little Fraser  river town, but the sport fans of  Vancouver. Who made them famous as a team. Not the little  jaunt down to Montreal some  years ago after the Minto cup#  but the determined opposition in  lacrosse circles by the Vancouver  lacrosse team. Westminster had  no doubt a great team, but they  Avould have amounted to nothing  even after capturing the Minto  Cup had not Con Jones and his  friends (and we are not one of  them particularly) came to the  scratch and put lacrosse on the  map in British Columbia.

Superstitions .hover, like birds,  in the Paris air. By patient endeavor they may be snared.  Of the few that I have caught  1 think I like best that of the woman who goes every day- to the  Lady Chapel of St. Sulpice to  pray. Her superstituous reverence for St. Sulpice dates back  to her early acquaintance with  Balzac. Lovers of that wonderful short story "The Athiest's  Mass," will understand its origin. It was to the St. Sulpice  Lady Chapel that the athiest  went, four times a year, to pray  for the old water-carrier's soul.  Reading that, the woman believed that prayer in St. Sulpice  must be more effective than prayer anywhere else, and she said,  'Some day I shall go to Paris  and I shall pray in St. Sulpice.'  She is in Paris now and she  prays in St. Sulpice. Her prayer is. all for a soldier. In the  beginning there were subsidiary  petitions, for other friends, for  herself, but, as the war frenzy  grew fiercer and the life of each  soldier hung by a slenderer  thread, petitions of little import  slipped from her rosary, and only  the one vital prayer for her soldier remains. The prayer which  the athiest confessed was his  she has adopted for hers, "If  he have anything to suffer, let  me suffer it for him." '  I like, too, the superstition of  the Moroccan soldier. He was  the biggest, blackest, handsom  estMoroccan that I ever saw. And  full of adventure. Othello must  have been like him. The only  trouble with this Othello was  that his Desdemonas could not  understand a word he said, for  he would talk in English and they  understand only French. Notwithstanding that disadvantage they  gathered around him in such  numbers that a policeman came  overXo~ clear the-pavement, but  ended by joining Othello's train,  though he also lacked the key to  his   tales.  The Moroccan's left arm was  bandaged. He related the story of  his wounds. Seated with him at  the cafe table was another Moroccan of lighter complexion and  ���������wo French soldiers, one of whom  spoke a few words of English. To  him Othello addressed his 'fre-  ment punctuations-of 'You see?'  'You  understand?'  '!  sec. I understand,' the lit-  X  Frenchman replied,  gravely;  "SO GOOD" IS  4X BREAD  ��������� x ' ' X' ���������. '  It's so good that thousands of good housewives.

Othello knew that he since I am still Kere to tell it I  HASTINGS  STREET  LOOKING  WEST  did not understand and he was  immensely pleased to get a listener at last who really did understand; He talked faster than  ever. The Frenchman objected.  'Tell it in French,' he said.  'You speak French as well as  me'. 'Do you?' I said to the Moroccan. 'Well, yes,' he acknowledged, 'I do. I was brought up  on French, but I learned English  in Alexandria years ago, and I  like it better. I speak it now on  principle. I am superstitious about  speaking English. I believe that  it would be black ingratitude to  speak anything else. It was due  to an Englishman that I got off  with only this.' He touched the  wounded arm. 'Only for him  and a command given in English  I'd be back in the Argonne to  stay.'  The Moroccan said that the  day when he got his wound was  a day of. surprise and confusion.  Men lost their heads and the instinct"of obedienceV TheXNlbfoc-  can, though^ usually a steady fellow, was as bad as the others.  He wanted to obey orders, but  for the life of him he could not  comprehend them. Suddenly  above the endless French uproar,  there sounded a command in English. ' Duck, I say, duck!' That  was the first command that had  meant anything to the Moroccan  all. day. He ducked, and his arm  caught a piece of shrapnel th.at  would otherwise have struck his  head.  should expect to be struck by  something more /deadly than  shrapnel if I ever told it in anything but English.'  Absurd?   Narrow-mindedT Pos->  sibly, but mixed with the absurdity   and  the' narrowness   is    a  strain  of  loyalty  that  is  very  touching. X  Two Highlanders on the lookout for 'sights' in the Latin quarter encountered a superstition  whose intensity of expression was  somewhat overpowering. They  stopped-, at a cafe! A tumult of  voices and a flutter of outstretched hands greeted them.  'Sit here, monsieur,' said the  occupant of one table, and 'Sit  here,' Sit here' said the occupants of other*.  'And what do you think the  row wag all about?' said one of  the Highlanders. 'Luck. That  was what they wanted us for,  good luck. Every man, woman and  child in Paris has the idea that  to   drink  with   a  man   in  kilts  nearly had a free-for-all fight to  get at us. For a chap who was  always considered an unlucky  penny at home that was a cheer-'  ing experience.. Maybe they'll  think more of. me when I get  back and tell them about it.'  A group of ice-houses went up  in flames recently, and, according to a newspaper report,  twelve hundred tons of ice were  reduced to ashes."

While tbe course of tbe war  has no doubt confirmed what  used to be called the "Blue Water School," in its belief that no  invasion of this country is possible so long as a supreme navy  stands between it and an aggressor, it is interesting to note  that, in Germany's "Naval Plan  against Great Britain and the  United States," ,a translation of  Operationen Ueber Eee. Freiherr  yon Edelsheim, formerly of the  German general staff, makes next  to nothing of the doctrine of  command of the seas. In the case  of France and Russia, it is true,  he .does assert that command of  the sea must be established before they could dream of landing  troops on a German coast. But in  the case of an expedition to  Great Britain it is negligible. He  rightly postulates an attempt by  the German navy to engage with  the naval forces of the enemy.  But he pointedly declares that  the transport fleet must not  wait until the result of the engagement yhas been ascertained.  Whether victory or defeat should  ensue, time would have been  given for the transports to reach  the alien shore.  forest raw  Advices reaching the minister  of lands concerning the firs situation throughoutetaoillilyqyltah  uation thrughout the province  are for the present satisfactory,  although the immediate prospects  unless rainfalls, are rather ominous in certain sections.
