VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA^- FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1915  PHE WATER POWERS  OF BRITISH  COLUMBIA  THE WATER POWER BRANCH of the  [Department of the Interior is to be congratulated  upon its enterprise in bringing 'before the public a fuller knowledge of the vast water power  [possibilities of Canada. To stimulate interest  the branch arranged an excellent exhibit of  models and photographs of water power plants  in the Canadian Pavilion at the Panama-iPacific  Exposition, and it has since supplemented ,this  work by a series of excellent monographs upon  Canadian water powers for distribution at the  autumn congress in San Francisco of the International Engineering Societies.  ' Developments in Coast Province v  The monograph under review which is~ -a very -  comprehensive record of. practically all the existing water power plants at present developed  in British Columbia, is by Mr. G. R. G. Conway, M. Inst. C.E., M. Can. Soc. C.E. M. Am.  Soc. C.E. It will be a surprise to many to read  how much has already been accomplished in the  development of the water powers of_the coast  province. The author, who, as chief engineer  and consulting engineer,, has been identified with  the construction of several of the largest plants  in British Columbia, has fortunately in the preparation of his book received the hearty co-operation of the engineers and managers of the various power companies, and has therefore been  able to give a very complete description of the  many interesting works that have been carried  out during the^ last seventeen years, lie has compiled'a volume that will be a permanent record  of what has been accomplished up to the present  time.  Mr. Conway Jias prepared a very interesting  table showing that already, the, installed capacity  of turbines and impulse wheels amounts to> 230,-  000 horse power, of which amount oyer one half  has been installed, during the past five years���������a  period tbat has seen such great expansion' in  British Columbia., . . ,.  ' ~ Conservative estimates have been made which,  place the total amount of water power that it  is ~ economically possible to , develop in British  Columbia at three million horse power. So far,  therefore,' not more than e.ight per cent, of this  vast total has been utilized.  It is. interesting to note how favorably the  three largest cities in the province, namely, Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster, are situated for hydro-electric' power. These cities are  at present supplied with water power plants  having machinery installed amounting to 13.5,000  horse power, equivalent to about one horse  power for every two persons forming those communities and the surrounding -municipalities.  In addition to this large amount of hydro-ejec-  tric power, steam-electric _.'au3aHa'ry plants have  beeirinstailed-amouhtii^  'Mr. Conway also estimates that within easy  transmissjion distance of those cities 750,000  horse power can be economically developed���������a  fact that should have an enormous influence  upon the building up of many new industries  depending upon cheap electrical energy for their  growth and expansion.  The development of hydroelectric power  began in the coast province in 1897 when the  Bonnington Falls plant of the Kootenay Light  and Power Company,..which is situated on the  Kootenay river near one of the great mining  and smelting centres of British Columbia, was  under construction, simultaneously with the construction of the Coldstream plant of the British  Columbia Electric Railway Company, seventeen  miles west of Victoria. The Bonnington Falls  plant, constructed originally for supplying electrical energy to a small smelter in operation at  Trail and tor mining work at Ressland, was  placed in operation early in the year 1898,  while the Coldstream plant for supplying electrical energy to the City of Victoria was first  placed in operation in September of the same  year. It was not until December, 1903, that the  Lake Buntzen plant of the Vancouver,; Power  Company was placed in operation and Vancouver-received for the first time hydro-electric  power, although for? several years prior to this  date'a small steam electric plant had been in  service  to   supply the  citizens  with light  and  power. XX ���������''���������-.������������������"'  Big Storage Dams  In the construction of many of the hydroelectric plants interesting engineering problems  had often to be solved,' particularly in tunnelling and dam construction. For example, British  Columbia has several of the most notable dams  for storage purposes in Canada, among them  (Continued   on   Page   4)  r-������  5 Cents Per Copy.  ,,,Nq:27.��������� ���������  CHURCHILL RESIGNS  V  IT IS OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED tha#>Mr._  Winston Spencer Churchill,. Chancellor of- the  Duchy of Lancaster, has resigned"irom the cabinet and will join the army in France.   J       ' ^  Mr. Churchill, in his letter of resignation,  explains that he agrees in the formation of a  small war council, and appreciates the intention  which Premier Asquith expressed to include him  among its members. He foresaw the difficulties  that the premier would have to face in its composition, he states, and he makes no complaint  because the scheme was changed, but with the  change his work in the government naturally  closed. He says he could not accept a position of  general responsibility < for a war policy without  any effective share in its guidance and control,  and did not feel able in times like these to remain in well paid inactivity. Rt. Hon. Winston is an officer in the military, and as such has,  placed his services at the disposal of the-authorities for duty in France;  THE CITY COUNCIL  i  ESTIMATES OF  FRUIT CROP  THE ESTIMATE of the 1915 fruit crop made  by the British Columbia Department of Agriculture shows a slight increase over the 1914 total production.1 iThis is particularly the case in  peaches and small fruits. The figures for 1915  and 1914 are:  1914 1915  Apples, boxes 684.840       613,000  Pvears, boxes ...... X.     28,000        35,000  PVlums and Prunes, crates    200,300       200,000  Peaches, crates  113,000       115,000  - Apricots, crates *   41.000 50,000  Cherries, crates  ;    33,400 35,000  ���������Small Fruits, crates 145,000  .   165,000  The crop reports from the Northwestern states  show a crop about 60 per cent, of last year's  production. In the Eastern states and Ontario,  similar decreases are reported.'while Nova Scotia's crop will exceed that o������ 1914 by 25" per  cent. - .  ���������  '  GJJJUKANY OANT WIN  THAT GERMANY cannot "win the war" iri  the Balkans is demonstrated by Hillaire Belloc  in "Land and Water."   He writes:  "There is no decision possible upon this new  front. The matter is so plain, it is so clearly  a thing of the map and of simple calculation  that a neglect of it is inexcusable.  It is capable of positive proof.  For, let us suppose an extreme case. Let  us suppose that before December the enemy were  to destroy the Serbian army. Let us suppose  that he were,to hold within that time securely,  the line to Constantinople, and let us suppose  that hewere shortly after the expiration of that  time to be able to munition the existing Turkish  forcesXmlTl*o^ large"  Turkish reserves of men.Wbat then?   Would he  have won the war?  He would not be within a thousand miles of  'winning it. ' ?  He would have produced a very great political effect, and political effect is here his chief_  object.. He would have put allied pressure"  upon the Balkans out of the question and the  allies' objective of opening the Black Sea equally out of the iquestipn. He would have made it  theoretically possible, in the course of many more  .months, to lay the foundations for a tardy, or  ultimately momentous, campaign through the  northeast- parts of. Asia. He might ultimately  (in theory ) threaten Egypt!  But, meanwhile, what will be happening elsewhere ?  Can any sane calculation regard tlie remaining- enemy forces as free to achieve a laborious  and tardy success over the mule paths of Asia  Minor and Syrian tracks, and the Desert of Sinai, while their effectives on the two European  fronts decline at the rate of 100,000 a week, while  the persistent hammering and persistent erack-  ing oi the all-important defensive line in France  and Flanders (even as I write, comes news of  a������ whole corps out of action' on the Lens-La  Bassee..-front alone���������8,000 dead) is continuing  and while the Russian reserves, though requiring months for the task, are being armed for an  offensive, which only time delays and which is  mathematically certain to appear in its turn���������a  balance is already achieved.  The conception is an impossible one. It is  not a military conception at all. Such bold  Strokes have been attempted by military nations  at the inception or in the midst of their effort  with full reserves of men behind them. They  would have no meaning in a situation like that  now imposed upon the enemy."  THE CITY COUNCIL has passed' an ill-digested by-law reducing the number of the Board  of. aldermen to"eight. We'say "ill-digested"  advisedly, for the very next day after passing the  law they began puzzling over the system of control to be adopted under the new regime, all  of which should have been considered before  passing  the law.  The ublic seems to have been inoculated  with an "experimenting" microbe, ai\d the council has caught' the disease. Every system is  deemed better than that in vogue.  -This "civic folly" movement has been raging all over the continent and has been quite  prevalent in Vancouver, ifrith the result above  noted. It would be hard to discover a more futile reform than the above. Had the' council  extended the term to two years, or devised  some scheme of continuity, it might have served  some useful purpose, but & .council of eight  elected each year is a joke.  PROHIBITION  GENE-Ritf, BOTHA ON        X   '   7������ **���������  GOVERNMENT POLICY  FROM THE TONE of the. reply given by  Sir Richard McBride it would appear that he has  no adequate idea of the significance of this movement. It is not disappointing so much because  he fails to see eye to eye with the prohibition  convention, but rather because he Jias failed to  give a clear, definite pronouncement on the  mattej.  It is difficult' to understand .just what Sir  Richard is trying to get at���������he agrees, that the  public should decide, but hints at "alternative"  schemes. One'would think it was abundantly  J clear that "the people," whose opinion he values  an highly were demanding "Prohibition," and  it only remains to test this "apparent" demand,  and,if ratified by* popular vote, ,then. enact a -.  law accordingly. i. '>  -       XX.  ^|-So_for.this Question has been well-kept" "trot'  of politics, but-Sir Richard is certainly, by his  delay, inviting his opponents to seek office over  this plank.  We hope that there will yet be found a solution, thus avoiding the need of making of it a  political football.    -  SPEAKING AT CAPE TOWN recently at  the opening of the South African Party Congress  Gen. Botha said he trembled to think what might  have happened at the outbreak of war and the  insurrection if the Union had not been an ae-  complished fact. Men ahd officers behaved  magnificently in the crisis, and the attitude of  the colored population had been most praise-'  worthy, both in the rebellion and in the campaign. The Union had been put to the severest test, but had stood it magnificently. Having given figures proving how enormously the  country had developed, in spite of difficulties,  Gen. Botha said they must concentrate on the  absolute necessity of bringing the war to a successful conclusion. -��������� The steps already taken by  the government in that direction were not only  in the interest of the British Empire, but also  in the interest bf the future permanent peace of  South Africa. The position with regard to  'land settlement had been, changed by the occupation of German South-West Africa, which was >  most suitable for agricultural and stock purposes. Thousands of citizens would be given  the opportunity of settling there and, as a result, healthy conditions would be created in the  Union, and south-west Africa would become a  source of strength.  -f ;  <  A CALL TO ARMS  y.  ? v-  4    ���������  ---ex  "I tt.   ,  By  Rev.

It  didn't require extraordinary acumen to predict  the great crash after-the rise* of the Triple Entente as a counterweight to the Triple Alliance.,  But a" remarkable capacity for divination must -  be conceded to the prophet who away back in  1882 could set " 1910 or thereabout 'X as the  date for a clash between .Great Britain and Germany oh the issue of world supremacy.  It was an extraordinary man who made this  extraordinary prediction-���������Charles George Gordon ("Chinese .Gordon"), an undoubted genius  and one of ~the most picturesque and heroic figures in British military history. A letter by  Gordon to Mr. James R. Purdy, dated 1882, has  recently been published in The-Morning Post, of.  London, from which the following is an extract:  " Every Briton should think of the future of his  country and cause each one to insist on the government passing a measure for compulsory universal military training! So far as England  is concerned, she need not, for.the next quarter  of a century, be under any apprehension of serious difficulties arising with any of her European  neighbors, but in 1910 or thereabout there will.  have arisen a naval power which may prove  mightier than she, and should she (Germany)  gain the supremacy, England -will become extinct, both as a sea and a land power, and all  her dependencies, including India, will fall into  Germany's clutches. You may live to see this.  I shall not;'but when that time comes, remember my words."  In 1882 Germany was not a sea power, had no  colonies and- had not been bitten by imperialistic  ambitions. Bismarck was encouraging France to  occupy more African territory and to dispute  priority in that region with Great Britain. But  Gordon looked far beyond the superficial friction of the hour between Great Britain and  France, and had a true vision of Germany's role  as the ultimate challenger of Britain's sea power  and oversea pretensions. Gordon Avas part soldier, part statesman, part mystic. It has been  granted to few humans to have his immense  range of. experience or to read the future as  clearly as he did.  *" THE YOUNG MEN of Canada should wake   -  up to the great fact that we Britishers are living  on the highest mountain peak of duty and op-  portunity tfiat the World has ever known.   The   \\  . glowing light of this day will never fade from ������x  the vision ofr future generations.   The magnificent demonstration of the unshakable .a������d{e������-x  thusiastic wjity of the far-flung ^rtiowfor^ ;  British Empire, whieh "tfcfi ���������*������ rkaa freyealed.  and wbich is being cemented with the mingled  blood of many races falling together on the field  of honor, should stir the heart of every Britisher  to fling himself at once into this, conflict.  An iron bridge is strongest' the day it is  complete. A cement bridge gains increasing  power of endurance with the passing of the  years. The German Empire is the iron bridge.  Its maximum strength is gone. It is being rusted  by the blood of. many millions of its fallen soldiers. The British Empire, on the other hand,*  will prove to be a cement bridge, if the Overseass  Dominions continue to respond to the call of  duty. Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand,  .South Africa, Fiji. Newfoundland, are being  cemented together by a sense pi duty, liberty,  sympathy, and all those no^  make men an4 constitute^ *^e jsoiil of heroic nations.' We fear not that in their unity with the  Motherland they will.���������������������������prove invincible.:: The  soul of eyery good cititen in the Empire is just  now haunted by an intense desire to do his utmost to end this war victoriously, that the great  principles for which we fight may prevail and  bless the whole world.  And so it comes to pass that every man of  ��������� military age with sound mental and physical  health, in this supreme hour must give account of  himself to his country and to his God, as to  why he is found in civilian clothing und not in  khaki.  Young men, enlist at once in gratitude for the  liberty, which has cost the blood of your fathers, lt has come to us slo>yly, creeping on  from point to point, and broadening down from  precedent to precedent at immense cost of life  and treasure!/ But it, can be destroyed with one  fell stroke of German victory, and the work of  our noble  fathers lost for centuries.  Then the bare possibility of Great Britain  being ravaged as Belgium was, and even Canadian women, being outraged as the women of  that noble little country were, should stiffen  every muscle and strengthen every will to make  the last supreme sacrifice of life itself,, if need  be, and count that nothing to avoid such.a fate.  If Canadians grasped the appalling tragedy  that will take place if our utmost be riot done,  they would multiply many times the number of  soldiers already sent forth. ,   c  Young men, do not stand on the order of your  going. Do not wait for commissions. Enlist as  privates, and be  thankful for that honor.  Go to the front bravely  and participate in  the proud glory that Canada has already achieved, and blazon the name of your country higher-  still in the annals .of the world.  XX *  iy*\ ������> *-~4-.l Friday, November 12, 1915.  If  Is Canada paying the price for  forest fires?  Read the statements in the following article "In 30 years,"  says a forest expert, after recently examining a certain area  of Northern Canada, "the Dominion has lost through fires about  16,000,000,000 feet, board measure, of merchantable spruce and  pine, wliich at 50 cents per 1000  feet would represent the enormous  sum  of  $8,000,000."  Place against that dead loss the  cost of a fire patrol system and  who would hesitate to decide  which of the two pays?  Many citizens when  they begin to take an interest in forest  conservation   for the first   time  are eager  to  stir up some  one  to start planting or seeding. They  are rather impatient with the emphasis which administrators  and  lumbermen lay on the need for  protecting existing forests. They  want to see something done toward growing new forests. But  the more one studies the forest  situation in Canada the more one  is impressed with the fact that  the first need is fire protection.  We   still   have   immense forests  ready for the axe. We have forests   half   grown   and    quarter  grown and   for   this, generation  and the next it is of the utmost  importance that these > forests be  saved. In saving the mature or  half-grown forest the still younger growth is   necessarily   being  saved too. And,   besides, a   moment's   reflection   will convince  any  one  that   it   is, useless  to  spend millions or even thousands  of dollars in seeding or planting  , up areas of timber until the pub  lie has been so aroused that there  is    reasonable    assurance    that  that these  costly areas will be  o protected   from fire   and allow  ed to mature. If we will not pro-;  tect what we have and what is  now immediately valuable what  is the use of planting more forests   only   to   be fuel   for new  flames?  Forest .Anon  ������ It is for this reason that fire  protection systems are organized.  It is for this reason that men are  fined for carelessness with fire.  It is for this that settlers who  have let clearing fires run contrary to law have been sent to  jail. Nobody wants an active settler in jail when he ought to be  on his land working to support  his family, but until, the public  comes to think of arson in the  forest as serious a crime as arson in the city then our forests  will  burn. ,  We are coming to realize that  you cannot destroy the natural  resources of one part of the country without injuring every individual in the country. The most  careless settler and the most  wasteful lumberman gets something out of the forest and passes on something to others but by  far the greatest loss to Canada's  timber wealth has occurred in a  way that absolutely benefitted no  one.  ���������'��������� ���������- X,      ��������� ^  The Prospector's Guilt  Take the Klondike rush of six  or seven years ago, that part of  the rush that occurred in the  rvalley of the Mackenzie river in  what is now northern Alberta.  Many of. these would-be miners  were careful of their camp fires  and put them out, but the majority cared not a fig for the future, or even for the present so  long as it did not inconvenience  them, and let their fire run without let or hindrance. There  were other prospectors besides  the Klondikers and there were  careless trappers and travellers  generally, The result is that  miles and miles of that country  covered with fine timber have  been ' burned to a desert. The  game and fur-bearing animals  have been killed or driven away  and the Indians impoverished  Now settlers qre coming in to  the Peace River valley and they  are in danger of facing a shortage in some sections of timber  for building and fuel. The trails  have been overthrown and oblit  erated in many places by burn  ed timber. All dead loss and all  the result of criminal carelessness.  One of the officers of the For  estry Branch of the Department  of the Interior in reporting on an  area of about nine thousand sq.  miles speaks of it in the words  given below. In itself 9,000 sq.  miles is a large area but it takes  "PUNCH" ANP  PERSUASION  Putting the "punch" into an argument is a fine art; but  putting persuasion into it is a finer one.  Tbe "punch" is epigrammatic, militant, moving���������but is  likely to be crude, angular, ungraceful.  Persuasion, while not so dramatic by half, is smoothly,  logically convincing���������and permanent.  We prefer to persuade people of the merits of our service.  Conviction through persuasion discounts future misunderstandings.  Hastings and Carrall Sts.

And Canada is suffering a like loss in area after area  all over the north country from  Ungava to British Columbia.  This officer reports:  Fires in the North  "The results of repeated fires  have been appalling. However,  the comparative figures and  other considerations given below  are as nothing compared with the  impression the eye-witness receives. |-  "Over an area of about 8,000  square miles, excluding the prairie land from the total area examined, only 648 square miles  or about 8 per cent, have been  found bearing a forest cover of  100 years old and over. These  are the only portions which can  be regarded as having a virgin  cover.: Besides this only a little  over 8.5 per cent, of the area surveyed, or approximately 700 sq.  mile's has been found with a cover from 50 to 100 years old but  not averaging above 70 years.  "The total area reported as  bearing a small pole-timber, a  forest which hardly averages 25  years old, would represent a little less than 14 per cent, of the  territory, or an area in round  figures of 1,150 sq. miles.  "The area represented as covered with your production, 1,-  550 square miles, is certainly^  large area, but yet less than 20  per cent, of the whole. The  growth covering this area would  probably not average more than  20 years old.  '"As contrasted with the above  areas 4,050 sduare miles reported  as bearing a forest cover of all  ages, there is the brule with an  area of 3,690 square miles. This  area has been mostly swept by  fires during the last thirty years.  It represents 46 per cent, of the  forest territory examined. These  figures are far from being exaggerated. Taking in the yqung  reproduction area the percentage  of the territory swept by fires  during the ;last 50 years is  brought up to about 65 per cent."  This is only a poor illustration  of the conditions prevailing as  the immediate result of these fires.  In some places the soil cover  has been entirely removed and  it will take a long time before  another forest can take root; in  some others the heavy slash endangers the young growth and  what, little is left of the old forest.: :v  A Record of Thirty Years  "A very rough but'conservative  (WCTagex^^  tion of the forest patches as existing, shows that during the last  30 years, ������������ver the territory examined, the Dominion of Canada has lost through fires about  16,000,000,000 feet, board measure, of merchantable spruce and  pine timber, which at 50 cents  per 1,000 feet would represent  the enormous sum of $8,000,000.  Besides what about the prospects  for the future throughout the  same territory? These figures are  not given as absolutely exact,  they are as near as possible to  the truth, and although very  conservative, they have the advantage of showing effectively  and correctly the results of unchecked fires, and the destruction and waste which are the lot  of our unprotected forests."    '  The moral, of course, is that Ave  should get V in and protect our  forest areas nT advance of the  prospector and pioneer, so that  when the settler arrives there will  be timber for his buildings, ties  for the new railways and fuel for  all.

The action was brought by the  Dominion government when dispute arose between the Ritchie  Contracting Company and the  Silica Sand and Gravel Company,  a company given an exclusive  lease of the hanks by the Dominion authorities. The rich deposits of sand on the banks were  being taken advantage of by  many local building firms, but to  bring matters tQ a head and determine the,right to possession,  the pominion authorities brought  the action against the Ritchie  Contracting Company. The Attorney-General of the province came  to the assistance of the Ritchie  Contracting Company and the #c-  tionu was - f ought'out at ^length^  evidence being submitted in voluminous manner by both sides.  Mr. Justice Macdonald, however,  held that the bay could not be  classified as a harbor, but,a road-  sted and gave judgment ibr the  defendants. This judgment was  taken to the Court of Appeal and  from there to the Supreme Court  of Canada.  The question raised at the trial  before Mr. Justice Macdonald was  whether at the time British Columbia entered confederation in  1871, English Bay was regarded  and used as a harbor. If so the  Dominion had control, but on the  other hand, if not, the provincial  authorities were in control.  The provincial government  called, among other witnesses, a  large number of tugboat and dee]  water captains, who testified thai  the bay was not a safe anchorage  from westerly winds, 'and was to]  be classified as a  roadstead instead of a harbor. This view wasl  upheld in an exhaustive judgment!  by Mr. Justice Macdonald.  THE POO WITHOUT FRIENDS!  Have you  feasted  today,  old  fellow f]  Had a  sniff   of   some  meat   or   aj  bone?

THE RETURNING SOLDIERS  Series of Proposals for Employment of Returning Soldiers to  Canadar���������Presented, to Senator  Lougheed, President Military  Hospitals Commission.  The following proposals will be  [found interesting to our readers,  I inasmuch as they deal with the  vexed question of employment for  | returning soldiers.  "With regard to the disabled,  their care is an obligation which  should fall primarily on the  State, and this liability can not  be considered as being extinguished by .the award of a  pension from public f.unds. Very  valuable assistance may be rendered voluntarily by persons and  associations Vho take an interest  in the welfare of our men, and  this assistance should, as far as  possible, be secured.  All those who return will be  found in one of the following  classes:  1. Able-bodied men for whom  the situations and positions they  left have been kept open, by patriotic employers. X  : 2. Able-bodied men who .were  out of work at the time of enlistment or who have-been super-1  seded in their absence; and invalided and wounded men similarly situated who will become  able-bodied after a period of  rest in a Convalescent Home.  3. Invalided and wounded: men  who are unable to follow their  previous occupation by reason of  their disability, but who will be  capable, after proper training,  to take up other work.  4. Men who are permanently  disabled, and will be unable to  earn their own living under any  circumstances.  Class 1���������It would appear that  no responsibility will rest upon  the people of Canada with respect  to this class. There may, however,  be cases where the men on re-  | turn are unfitted for their previous work, either through changed conditions here or through the  effect of their long absence. In  such cases these men would come  under Class 2.  Class 2���������Steps should be taken, well in advance to provide  employment as soon after their  return as possible for this, class.  Definite machinery should be installed whereby situations may  be found for all able-bodied men  at a remuneration as near tto that  they  were   previously   receiving  as possible. This matter, however,  can   hardly be   handled   by the  Dominion government^ directly, as  to undertake it would create a  very difficult and unworkable situation. It can be. handled by the  Dominion     government,     acting  through  the   Military   Hospitals  commission, in definite co-opera  tion with the provincial govern  ments.   To   this   end   I   suggest  that the prime ministers  of  the  provinces   be   immediately   communicated with so that in  each  province  a  commission  may  be  appointed to take charge of the  questions of employment and vo  cational education. This commis  sion should consist of not more  than six members of whom   one  should be a member of the pro  vincial government, one a manu  facturer,  one a commercial man,  one  a  representative  of labour,  one an expert agriculturalist and  one an expert in technical training. I suggest that the^following  procedure be adopted:; V  (a) That the provincial com  missions undertake the immediate  appointment of a local committee  in each centre responsible to them  which may or may not be under  civic control, which would ar  range for openings in the dis-.  tricts from which the men were  recruited. This committee may be  entitled "The Returned Soldiers  Employment Bureau������������������-���������-���������-*-���������  Branch." While the administration of this bureau would be  voluntarily, the clerical work  might have to' be paid.  (b) That in order to systematize its- work each local Employment Bureau take the following steps:  1. Compile a register containing full information regarding  each returned soldier seeking  employment. Early information  of approaching discharge from  convalescent homes should be se  cured and arrangements made fbr  the registration of every disabled  man who is capable of work.  2. Prepare a classified list of  employers in the district and circularize them on behalf of the  men.  3. Arrange with the daily papers to give free space for advertising the trades and capabilities  of returned soldiers, also to give  publicity and support to a propaganda advocating preferential  treatment for these men.  l������  Po You Want to Rent Your Home?

(c) That the" Canadian Manufacturers' Association be asked  to organize its members and to  undertake the following:  1. To provide situations for returning soldiers in classes 2 and  3 on a percentage basis. This  would mean that individual manufacturers would increase the  number of their , employees by  five, ten, fifteen or, twenty per  cent. In this way provision  would b"e made for a large number.  2. To co-operate with the provincial commissions in giving  training to men in Class 3. In  some cases tfiis would take the  form of apprenticeships, in others it would entail the placing  of workshops during the day or  the evening, at the disposal of  technical experts who would undertake the training of men  along special lines, or the undertaking of this work by foremen and others as a service to  their country.  (d) That the Department of  the Interior and the provincial  governments be asked to arrange for land to be. placed a.t  the disposal of the commission in  order that those who would like  to do so may become farmers." It  would be well to devise a plan  of community farming under the  direction of an expert agriculturalist. The assistance of. the Canadian VPacific Railway and other  organizations which have made a  special study of the system of  ready-made farms, might profitably be secured.  (e) That the Provincial governments be asked to arrange for  a credit system which will enable  men without capital who desire to  go, on the land, to" take up free  grants and to develop the same,  or, in those provinces in which  no free land is available; to acquire it at a reasonable price.  Class 3���������Those who by reason  of physical disability are unable  to follow their previous occupations should be the wards of the  country until such time a������-they  are able to earn sufficient to keep  them, in other words, they should  be given an opportunity to learn  new trade's and their pensions  should be supplemented by the  Disablement Fund in order that  their dependents may not suffer,  It will be necessary  I: To ascertain exactly the capacity of the disabled ^man for  productive work of some special  kind.  =^2. =To__trainJhim_in._the_,short���������  est possible time to a reasonable  standard of productive efficiency.  : 3. To place him in some industrial plant at labor which is stable and healthful.  I suggest the following procedure:  (a) That the provincial commissions be asked to organize,  through the Provincial Educational Departments, trained professional and voluntary workers  in each centre from which men  have been recruited, capable of  giving instruction to those who  may need it. This instruction to  embrace such trades and occupations as shoemaking, garment  making, printing, book-binding,  painting, carpentering, stenography, typewriting, book-keeping,  etc.  ' (b) That the commission secure the services of experts in the  training of disabled men and  place their services at the disposal of the provincial commissions.  (c) That institutions such as  those for the training of the  blind be utilized, and any men  who may require training placed  in these institutions until such  time as they are able to earn  their OAvn living.  (d) That the Provincial Commissions use the machinery of. the  Educational Departments to arrange for special tuitiorl for those  Ml  1 f  i.  A BED CROSS MOTOR AMBULANCE  who require it in the various technical school's and state universi-  4<  ties under their jurisdiction. All  the provinces have colleges and  there are' technical schools in  Montreal, Quebec and Shawnigan  Falls. P.Q.; in Toronto, Hamilton, London and other cities and  towns in Ontario, in Halifax, Sydney and a number of other places  in Nova Scotia; in Winnipeg,  Calgary land Vancouver.  '(e) That in the larger cities if  adequate facilities do not exist in  the technical schools, court-house,  or municipal building be secured  in which model work-shops can  be operated under the direction of  experts appointed by the provincial commissions, in which training may be given to those who  need it. -While this suggestion is  set down for consideration, it  must be remembered that the  cost of equipment and maintenance would be heavy. An alternative would be to utilize the  workshops of manufacturers as  set forth in clause (c) of "Class  2. It would be necessary tp operate a dining-room in or adjacent to all buildings, where men  are receiving������ training, where  free meals would be provided.  (f) That the provincial governments be. asked to give free  tuition in the various agricultural  colleges to those who may subsequently be capable of working on  the land as farmers, fruit-grow  ers, ar market gardeners. In  this case the full fees to be remitted and the men's board paid out  of the Disablement Fund. On the  completion of their course," these  men would have to be located,  but this,can be done by the Employment bureau referred to in  sections (a) and -(b) of Class I.  (g) That the Bankers? Association be asked to employ men  who have lost an arm or a leg,  or who are otherwise partially  incapacitated, as messengers, elevator attendants or caretakers.  (h) That railway companies  and hotel and retail store and  theatre managers be asked to  einpl^^wtially^sabledmeTpTas  porters and in all situations where  their disability will not interfere  with their efficiency.  (i) That the manufacturers  of Canada be urged, through the  Canadian Manufacturers' Association, to undertake the production of some of the numerous articles previously imported from  enemy countries, with the especial object of providing employment for partially disabled men.  (j) That all Dominion and provincial government and municipal positions, as they fall vacant,  be filled only by partially disabled men if they are capable of  doing the work required.  Class 4���������It is probable that a  number of those who return will  be permanently ��������� incapacitated  from earning their own living.  At the same time many of them  ma7, be able to do a little work.  These men should be given an op-  pirtiinity of going to a permanent soldiers' home where light  occupations may be provided.  Such homes" should have a considerable acreage so that the  meat, vegetables and fruit consumed in the home might be raised on the premises, the work being done as far as possible by the  inmates/ As all inmates would be  in receipt of first or second degree pensions, it would be unnecessary to pay thenumore than  nominal wages, and the only ex  pense would be their maintenance  and the general upkeep of the  Home. It may be necessary to establish more than one of those  permanent homes.  Disablement Fond  t In view of the fact that the  pensions granted by the government, though they have been arranged on as generous a scale as  possible, will be insufficient in  many cases, a Fund has been established largely through your  activities in this direction, to be  known as the Military Hospitals  Commission Disablement Fund.  This Fund will be administered  by the commission, and its principal objects will be somewhat  along, the following lines:  1. To supplement the pension  or compensation granted by the  government in cases where this is  insufficient for the support of dependents.  2. To educate and train those  who are unable to follow their  previous occupations in other  lines of industry and to supplement their earnings during the  period of training.  3. To assist those totally incapacitated, either by the erection and' maintenance of permanent soldiers' homes, or aa may  be hereafter determined.  '��������� 4. Generally to take such steps  as may be deemed nceessary or  desirable to carry out the duty  of the Canadian people to the  men who have suffered in the de  fence of our national liberties.  X recommend that the local administration of the Disablement  Fund be placed in the hands of  the Provincial Commissions.  Several members of the Com  mission with whom I have discussed the matter have suggested  that a conference between the  commission, representing the  Dominion government, and the  premiers and ministers pf educa-  tion of the provinces might be  called by the prime minister at  an early date. Such a conference  could only be productive of good.  It ^should be succeeded immediately by a provincial conference  in each capital to which mayors,  presidents of boards of trade, representatives of the Canadian  Manufacturers Ass'n, Technical  experts, agriculturists, and representatives of. labour should be invited. Each- provincial conference  should be presided over by a  member of the provincial government, and should be preceded by  an invitation through the press  to all who are- interested in this  subject to submit suggestions.  Those suggestions which would  appear to be of value could be  tabulated, and submitted to the  conference. The decisions arrived  at should be sent to the secretary  of the military hospitals commission.  In the case of those suffering  from, physical disability which  would render them incapable of  following their previous occupations it is very desirable, if not  essential, that the nature of the  employment, for which a parti-,  cular man was to be -trained,  should be determined by some responsible authority before the  commencement of the course, and  that the prospect of a vacancy  being available upon the completion of the training, should be  carefully examined beforehand*  Soldiers' Clubs should be established in all the principal centres  and in some of the smaller ones.  These clubs would not,- iwdy be  places of recreation and educa  tion, but would enable .inen who  have      grievances      to   discuss *  them with others, and to submit  them to the proper authorities.  It would be necessary to prepare  a model   constitution for V these  clubs, which should, be subsidized  by the commission in proportion  to their membership.  /   ������������������  I   T  4 i  ' 1  ,       X u  Get Action  -TELEPHONE  To write or talk, that's the question!

ALLIES' PLEDGE   REMAINS SAME  Reaffirmation of. Premier Asquith's historic  pledge regarding the Entente Allies' terms of  peace delivered at the Lord Mayor's banquet  November 9, 1914, was made by Sir Edward  Grey, today in* a written answer to a question  put by Sir Arthur Markham, Liberal member of  parliament for the Mansfield Division of Nottinghamshire.        %/  After stating that Great Britain's position  in the war is fixed by her alliances with Japan,  France and Russia, the Foreign Secretary proceeded:   ���������'������������������������������������;'-,." :......'. -.'���������-,  "In our view the. conditions^ of peace must  fulfil thoiie laid down by the Prime Minister on  ^November 9,Vl914. It is very desirable that it  should be understood for once and for all that  this is the determination of the government, collectively and individually, and of the nation."  At the Lord Mayor's banquet, Nov. 9, 1914,  Premier Asquith in outlining the war situation,  said:  "This is going to be a long war, but there  is nothing in a long struggle to depress us or. in  what has happened. Our enemy has .tried three  objectives���������Paris, Warsaw and Calais���������and has  been baffled in. all."     '  "That is not enough. We shall not sheath the  sword, which we haye not lightly drawn, until  Belgium has recovered more than she has sacrificed; until' France , 4s adequately tsepured,  against menace; until the rights of the smaller  nationalities have been^ placed upon an unassailable foundation, and until the military dominions of Prussia is finally" destroyed."  /  TOT VALUE OF SINCERITY  *; THERE IS A,VAST multitude of men and  women in thi8 world who fail to realize the  value of sincerity asa factor for success..TJiey  are guided by What they call policy rather than  by their consciences. Whatever their convictions  may be, they hesitate to make them public when  by doing so tbey arei likely to sustain loss of,  money, social position' or poiiticaV prestige.  Nothing is more destructive of character than  the, suppression of conviction.     A .man jwhb. is',.  afraid to speak out his own mind is net likelyv  to developv���������the, courage necessary^ to succeed _ in_  any of the higher branches of human activity.  The suppression of one's convictions produces  cowardice jifct as the open declaration of one's  convictions develops courage.  It is inevitable that in giving expression to  views which one holds conscientiously we shall  encounter opposition; and perhaps make enemies.  In that process, however, a man makes as many,  or more, friends. When one is honest with oneself, and speaks out "the utmost syllable of his  confession," as Emerson puts it, he finds that  there are a thousand around him who share his  beliefs, but to some extent lack his courage to  publicly proclaim them. Thus he becomes a  leader, and enters into the joys of helping  those who are weaker in their moral fibre, and  who need leadership.  4 The most obtrusive thing in a man's character  is his sincerity. It wins admiration even from  those who disagree with him. They realize that  while they. hold different views, the one with  whom they disagree is staking his all upon the  things in which he does believe. Men forget  that it is as difficult to hide insincerity as it is  unnecessary to find a covering for the sincere  man.      -   ��������������������������� ��������� X   -''"  There is no greater luxury in life for any  man to enjoy than to follow his own lights, serving his own conscience. There may be a penalty to pay for it. Usually there is. But it is  worth the price, and yields a greater dividend,  of satisfaction in the end than all thaYis to be  attained by other means. Cultivate sincerity  and it will grow to be the choicest flower in the  garden of your life.  REV.  DR. W.  J. SIPPRELL  The Popular and Energetic Pastor of the Mount Pleasant  Methodist Congregation  SIX INTELLECTUAL EVENINGS  Australia was slower than Canada to respond  at the first call for volunteers, but "now she has  beaten this country by a good margin,in the number of men sent to the front in proportion to  population.  A BOOK of forty pages and cover was recently published by the board of the Mount'  Pleasant Methodist church, in connection with  a series of winter entertainments, in the form  of lectures on live questions of the day. The  book is a splendid tribute to the. enterprise and  initiative of the Board of this church, and will,  without doubt, be a strong factor in co-ordinat-  fng the different organizations of the church into  one strong working Christian institution. '' Six  Intellectual Evenings" is the title of the publication, and it advertises six evenings of intellectual feasts during  the  winter.  Mount Pleasant is one of the oldest pf the  Methodist churches, of. Vancouver. It came into  being by the aetion'of the British Columbia conference of 1889, when the late Rev. J. F. Betts  was placed in charge of a circuit which included  Vancouver East and Mount Pleasant, In 1890 a  church was built, and in 1891 Mount Pleasant  was created a mission by itself under the pastorate of the late Bev. Joseph Hall, and was  located on the corner of what is now known as  Main street and Broadway. ,   f;  This location was retained until a new church  was erected on the present site, corner of Tenth  avenue and, Ontario street, with a seating capacity of 1,150. Puring the continuance of the  work on the first-mentioned location the pastors have been as follows:  Bev. Joseph Hall, 1891-1892; Bee. S. J.Thompson, 1892-1895; Bev. B. B. Maitland, 1895-1896;  Bey. J. H. White, P.P., 1896-1897; Bev. A. E.  Green, 1897-1900; Bev. C. H- M. Sutherland, 1900-  .1904X' ;;���������= Xv Xx/Xxv'^  The present structure was erected during the  pastorate ,of the Bev. A. E.VHetheririgton, B'.D.,;  who has been succeeded by Bev. J P. West-  man, 1907-1910; Bev. W. L. Hall, B. p., 1910-  1913; Bev. W; J. Sipprell, P.P., 1913.  The present pastor is Bev. W.J/ Sipprell,  B.A., P.P. He was born in Oxford County, Ont.,  4866,^and=received^his-early-educatioh^in=the  Bichwood Public School and Brantford Collegiate  Institute. After spending several years in  teaching and on probation work in the old Niagara conference, he entered Victoria University, from which institution he graduated with  honors in 1895y tis "Bachelor of Arts," with a .  silver medal in philosophy. The following year,  completing his divinity -work, he secured the  degree of "Bachelor of Pivinity," arid won  the Sandford Gold Medal in theology. In 1898  he was appointed principal of the Columbian  college in New Westminster.  Pr. Sipprell has been elected delegate to all  the general conferences since coming west, and  in 1904 was honored with the presidency of the  British Columbia conference. In 1905 his Alma  Mater conferred upon him the degree of "Poctor  of Pivinity.'' In 1911 Pr. Sipprell resigned  his position in the Columbian college and spent  the following two years studying abroad in Oxford, Glasgow, Cambridge, Berlin, Lipsic, Marburg, Heidelberg and Haele. In the year 1913  he accepted an invitation to Mount Pleasant..  church, and has labored there with conspicuous  success since then. Pr. Sipprell is one of the  best preachers in the ,city, arid is fearless and \  frank in his views on questions,of the day.  The "sisr intellectual evenings" opened on  November 2nd with an illustrated lecture entitled "Masters and Masterpieces in the World  of Art," by the pastor. This lecture was a  treat indeed for those who heard it, and. was a  most auspicious opening for the winter's work.  The other evenings are r^JDeeember 14th, Rev.  W. L. Armstrong, B.A., P.P., of McPougal Methodist Church, Edmonton, on "Making Good, or  . the Philosophy of Success "; January ,17th, 1916,  Mrs. Nelli,e L. McClung, who will give an evening  with her words. MrsI McClung is noted for her  two books, "Sowing Seeds in Panny, "and "The  Second Chance." - On  February 18,  1916.  Rev.  G. W. Kerby, B.A., P.P., principal Mount Royal  College, Calgary, will lecture on "A Canadian"  National Ideal.'' On November 30th, 1915, the  "Queen Esther" Cantata will be presented and  on Tuesday, March 21st, 1916, a grand concert  of local talent. Taken all jn all the ���������program:  as aranged is a most-attarctiveone,/arid it is  fitting to; remark that the usual success which  follows the efforts of the board of this church  will no doubt be manifested during the coming  "winter.  ,.-'... _���������X'  .RECESSIONAL  God pf our fathers, known of old,        \    ���������  Lord of dur far-flung battle-line,  Beneath whose awful hand we hold  Pominion over palm and pine���������  Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,  Lest we forget���������lest we forget!

TOT TWU Of TESTING  __������__.-  THE BOTTEBPAM COUBANT states that  the acknowledged losses of the Prussian army  in action up to the 20th of October total 2,-  021,078.   The losses of the Bavarian, Saxon, ahd i  Wurtemberg troops  and  of the  Imperial  Ger-|  man navy are not included in this total,  nor'  are those of the Germans serving with the Turkish army.   The   Courant  states that  the   total!  /losses of the  Germanic  armies  have been  five  million men.   If this is approximately correct, *  not less than a" million and a half of Germans  and Austrians have been killed in action' or have  died of wounds, for the ratio of those who are  killed outright or die of-wounds is found to "be  almost one in three of all casualties.  The time 'of testing approaches. Mr. Hil-  laire Belloc, discussing the attempt to link up  Constantinople with the central Empires, says:  "It is the last effort of the Austro-Germans to  create a diversion before their effectives 'begin  to faiL That they can keep these at full  strength six weeks more is doubtful. That they  can keep them two months more is improbable,  that they can! keep them three months more is  mathematically iiripossible."  The Balkan campaign 'may be an apparent  success for the Germanic arms, bn\ in reality  it will prove as costly a failure as the campaign on the Yser, the capture of Warsaw, or  the battles along the Pvina. It inevitably means  the loss; of tens of thousands of men by Serbian bullets, Whose lives should be safeguarded  for the defence of Germany and Austria against  thei coming attacks of France, Britain and, Rus-  ��������� Vsia.   Mr.  Belloc  has beenX^ery  careful in  his  computations as Vto the relative strength of the  ��������� Germanic armies and those of the allies at any  given'period. '������������������".He has demonstrated over and  over again that up to early autumn of the present year the Germanic effectives were fully equal  in strength to those of the Allies. Now he declares that Germany and Austria can no longer  add to their strength in the field, and that very  soon the total number available will begin to  lessen. How quickly the wastage will destroy  the Germanic armies becomes evident from thev  report that the Prussian losses from October  11 tp October 20 were 57,424. The war has  become a struggle in which the exhaustion of one  or the other of the groups of combatants will be  followed by collapse. The allies have still enormous reserves of men..

By means of this it attaches itself to any fish it chooses���������a shark or a whale, for inV  stance, or turtles and even ships  ���������and so it is carried about without any trouble. When once attached they stick like glue, and  they are occasionally used for purposes of fishing. A line is fixed  to the fish's tail, which is then  set,free. As soon as it discovers  a fish or a turtle it takes a firm  hold. In the simplest form of fishing the line is dragged in and  the sucking fish hauled up, together with its captive. In the case  of a turtle the fishermen dives  after the line and so secures the  victim.

MILITARY OPERATIONS  IN BELGIUM  Tbe War of 1914���������Report Compiled by the Commander-in-  Chief of the Belgian Army.  m  This work is of intense interest  and of the greatest importance at  the present time. Hitherto the doings of the Belgian Army during j  the .momentous early days of the  war have been overshadowed by  later events, but in this report,  issued direct from the ���������Commander-in-Chief of the Belgian Army,  we are made familiar with the  actual military operations and the  main ideas which inspired them.  On reading this report, sober  -in;.-tone;'and'' strictly confined to  fact, it is apparent that from the  first day the Belgian Military  Authorities had conceived a-plan  of defence strictly appropriate to  the conditions of the threatened  conflict, and never ceased to carry its realisation into effect with  firmness and unity of action.  In view of the -vastly superior  forces of. the enemy this plan  was devised to hold the greatest  possible part of Belgium against  invasion and to establish the  army. on. such lines of defence that  resistance under favourable conditions might be made in con  cert with the forces of Powers  guaranteeing neutrality, and~ at  the same time it avoided expos  ure of the army, the safeguard  of the nation, to risk of disas  ter 'should junction with those  forces not be effected before the  arrival of the enemy's armies.  When the junction had taken  place on the Yser, the Belgian  Army, which then consisted of  82,000 men, was able, with the  aid of a French brigade, rein-  iorced later by a division, to  break the violent attacks of an  army of 150,000 men over a front,  which, since this heroic resistance,  has remained inviolate.  ' The report goes further than  this, howeveri and establishes the  teLthajLthe-Plan^of^Operations  has held strictly to the appeal  made by Belgium to the Protecting Powers on the 4th August,  1914, namely, to organize together with the forces of the latter  "a concerted and common action which should guarantee the  independence and integrity of the  country."  With regard to the facts revealed by the Report, one of the most  characteristic is the following:  Belgium kept her army distributed over the territory in accordance with the military requirements made necessary by the  neutrality of the country, viz.,  one division faced England, and  owing to the long French frontier  two divisions faced France, but  ONTE ONLY faced Germany. This  position was maintained until the  last moment, when it became certain that Belgium's frontiers  were about to be violated by the  German armies, namely, up to the,  night of the 3rd-4th of AugustJ  that is, Twenty-Four Hours after  Germany's ultimatum had been  handed in. X  . ;������������������ ,The report concludes thus:  "Whatever may be the aspect in  which one regards the operations of the Belgian Army, it  can without doubt be asserted  that Belgium has as scrupulously  fulfilled the obligations of her  neutrality since its violation, as  she has observed them under the  guarantee of the Treaties."

XX-  7x'   - ,v  SPORTING COMMENT  The Hookey War  It is difficult to see at the present time what will Be the ultimate result of the hockey war  now going on. Despatches from  'the east state that the N. H. A.  moguls propose fighting the coast  hockey men, and the easterners  have made offers to a number, of  the coast stars. President Patrick  has retaliated, and is in possession of wires of acceptance of his  terms by the entire Toronto team.  This in itself is a signal victory for the coast league, but the  end of the fight is by no means  in sight. Already one of the  players said to have been signed  by the coast league is reported to  have jumped back to the N. H.  A. Other such acts are likely to  follow until the whole matter resolves itself into a win for the  players, and financial loss for the  promoters. And all on account  o������ what? Dishonest practices by  men who have been placed in positions of trust by the respective  teams. The dishonesty most as  suredly has found a home in the  east. The coast magnates, as  far as we know, have played the  game fair in all .matters, and the  failure of the easterners to make  their word their bond is the cause  of this trouble. Such men as  Kennedy and Quinn are no credit  to any league, if their actions in  the present case is a criterion of  their character. We -have said  many times before, and hasten to  \ reiterate, that the sooner the sport  * promotors of Canada learn the  lesson of playing fair and square  the sodher sport will take on a  |J different aspect from coast to  coast. There are many, young  players of real merit who are an-  , xious to play professional hockey,  but on account of the looseness of  the laws   will   not   attach   their  signature to any contract.  ������������������   #   * _  McCullough, a youngster,, of  Regina, who made his name with  the Allan cup holders a season  or so ago, is on his way west to  play goal for Victoria. Lindsay,  who has been net guardian for  the Aristocrats for several seasons, has been given his release,  and will probably catch on with  some eastern team. McCullough  is said to be a dandy, and he will  have plenty of opportunity to  show his class in the coast league.  ��������� ���������   ������  Dunderdale has not signed up  for-the Rosebuds as yet. It is an  old dodge of Tommy's to hold out  as long as possible. It is not any  wonder that he is slow to come  to terms this year. Probably he  is dickering with the eastern  magnates. In our opinion it  would be no great loss to- the  Rosebuds if he went east. Tommy is so deucedly conceited that  it spoils his playing sometimes.  * ���������   *  Frank Patrick figures on getting all his new blood from the  prairies hereafter. And he is  right. Some of the best stars iny  the N. H. A. are products of the  prairie leagues, the place where  the youngsters get between four  and five months of hockey each  year. Is it any wonder tjiat the  lads develop into stars? What  we want in the coast league is  not a bunch of has-beens from  the east, but the fast youngsters  from the middle west, who can  give and" take and play the game  Such men as Mackay and Cook  and several' others are the class  the coast league needs, and President Patrick knows where to get  them: ' '���������*  ' -  Portland players will report  for practice early next week, and  the new lineup of. the Rosebuds  will be announced. Manager Savage promises some surprises for  the coast league fans this year.  ��������� #   ���������  Ottawa is after Frank Nighbor,.  of Vancouver. Before coming to  the coast the star wing man of  the champions played in Toronto.  His home town is Pembroke, Ont.,  but since coming to Vancouver  he has developed wonderfully.'  ��������� *   ���������  The new Seattle arena is to be  opened for skating this week. The  hockey players who are to represent the Metropolitans in the  league this year will leave the  east in a couple of weeks. The  entire Toronto team has been  contracted for, and will be along  in spite of the threats of the N.  H. A! moguls.  ��������� *   ���������  Final word to hand is to the  effect that Fred Taylor will be  with the Vancouver champions  again this year. There is no better and cleaner player in the  Dominion than Fred Taylor, and  his very presence on any team  adds much to the reputation of  of that team.

A meeting under the auspices  of the Canadian Defence League,  October 28, called on the government to raise the Canadian force  to 300,000 men.  IN HONOR OF BELGIUM  A glance at the list of contents of the November issue of  Rod and Gun in Canada magazine  indicates that this number is- of  general interest to the outdoor  lover and sportsman, while a  reading of the number justifies  the first impression. "Big Alec  and the Portage of Death" is a  Hudson Bay story by R. J. Fraser of pathetic interest, concerning a veritable 'portage of death'  which was negotiated by an unfortunate band of Indians, the  victims of a factor's cruelty.  "Martin and the Mortgage" is  another of H. C. Haddon's stories and has to do with the capture, of a den" of black "fox puppies. "How Sounders caught the  Game Hog" is a story of deer  hunting by camera vs. deer hunting by gun, written and illustrated by F. V. Williams. There  are other stories that make a  like appeal to the readers of a  sportsman's magazine as well as  the usual special departments devoted to guns and ammunition,  fishing, etc. W. J. Taylor, Limited, Woodstock, Ont., are the publishers.  The British National Commit  tee for relief in Belgium has sent  the following appeal, signed- by  the Lord Mayor of London, to  all the High Commissioners and  Agents-General of the Overseas  Dominions. It has been transmitted by fSir' George Perley and is  as follows:  , "'Fete Day heroic King Belgians falls on Monday, fifteenth  -November, and as chairman National Committee relief Belgium  I appeal British Empire celebrate  event in manner that will afford  King Albert greatest satisfaction,  namely, By subscribing money  enough feed whole of three million destitute Belgians in Belgium on their beloved monarch's  Fete Day. Sixpence will keep one  Belgium alive for one day, therefore I appeal for three million  sixpences enable us to keep alive  on King's Fete Day every one of  his subjects who are without food.  Canada has responded , nobly to  cry of starving Belgians and I  feel certain this special appeal  for sixpence per head will meet  with ready response. Ends.'  The appeal is for a most worthy object,, and it is commended  to your best consideration and to  such action as you may think desirable. The messages having been  transmitted tome as Premier of  Canada, I feel it my duty to commend it to you.  PARCEL POST RATES  FOR THE TROOPS  The following parcel post rates,  routes and regulations for parcels  going Jo troops at the front have  been issued by the post office department.  Every parcel must have attached to it a customs declaration,  forms for which - can be obtained from postmasters. There is no  fractional rate; a parcel over one  pound must be paid at the two  pound rate, a parcel over two  pounds at the three pound rate  and so on.  The rates for Great Britain and  for France are respectively as  follows: 1-lb., 12c and 32c; 2 lbs.,  24c and 40c; 3 lbs., 36c and 48c;  4 lbs., 48c and 64c; 5 lbs.,  60c and 72c; 6 lbs., 72c and 80c;  7 lbs., 84c and 88c; 8 lbs., 96c  and $1.02; 9 lbs., $1.08 and $1.10;  10 lbs., $1.20 and $1.18; 11 lbs.,  $1.32 and $1.26  Rates for other countries can  be obtained from postmasters.  The direct parcel post service  between Canada and France (by  which the rate is slightly lower  than given above) is not available for parcels addressed to the"  troops, all of which must bear,  as part of -the address, the words  "Army Post Office, London";  but every parcel should be addressed to the destination known  to the sender.  It has been decided, until further .notice, to allow parcels addressed to His Majesty's ships or  to British and Canadian troops  on active service in Canada or  elsewhere, to be re-directed free  of any re-direction charge. This  refers to re-direction only. At  the time when parcels for    the  TO STAY IN VANCOUVER  At the meeting of the Presbytery of Westminster held in St.  John's Presbyterian church on  Tuesday, the call to Rev. E. L.  Pidgeon, pastor of St. John's,'to  become the pastor of St. Angus-  tines church, Winnipeg, was refused. Strong representations  from Winnipeg were on hand, including Rev. Dr. John Hogg, of  the prairie city. Rev. E. A.  Henry, 'of Chalmers' church, supported the translation on behalf  of the Winnipeg congregation,'  but after the call was put into',  the hands of Mr. Pidgeon, he decided to remain in Vancouver.  Rev. Mr.' Pidgeon has been a  great strength to the ministreial  ranks of this city, and his decision, made after strong representations had been made by his  own congregation, is accepted  as an incentive to further good  work in Vancouver.  When the best things are not  possible, the best may be made  of those that are possible.

Mitchell will preach  anniversary service in Robson  Memorial church, Grandview, on  Sunday morning.'  The J. Leckie Company, of  Vancouver, have received another  large , order for army boots. The  latest order is for 20,000 pairs,  and it is of sufficient importance  to^ keep the plant working overtime for some time to come.  For the benefit of those sending parcels overseas the postal  authorities have expressed the  opinion that to be sure of safe  arrival in France by Christmas  boxes should* be posted from here  not later than the 13th inst.

Report has it that in  St. John's church the vote is opposed to union at the present time,  while in Chalmers church the  ���������vote is overwhelmingly for union.  The vote in Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian church will be completed  on Sunday.  Saturday is tag day for the  help of the homeless jews now  in Russia.

DELEGATION MEETS  PREMIER McBRIDE  Chairman Jonathan Rogers, of  the People's Prohibition Movement, headed a delegation composed of representatives of that  movement from Vancouver, New  Westminster and Victoria, which  waited on Sir Richard McBride  in Victoria on Thursday in connection with his recent letter to  the Prohibition people regarding  the government's attitude towards the requests of the Prohibition Convention held in Vancouver in August.  Some plain facts were "told the  Premier regarding the intentions  and' attitude of the Prohibition  people, and some "rather sharp  criticism indulged in. The Premier replied that he- would write  the prohibition people .again, setting out the views of. his government in the matter, in time for  the mass meeting here early in  December.  Meantime the prohibition work  is, progressing most favorably all  over the province, and party politics and all other lines of sectionalism are entirely lost sight of  iu the endeavor to rid British  Columbia of its greatest curse.  The Greek cabinet has resigned  and there will be a general election shortly. This will probably  be the turning point of Greek  neutrality in the war, and, will  put the quietus on their pro-Ger\  man monarch.  It has been announced that the  steamers which have arrived at  the entrance of the Panama Canal and which have been obliged  to take other routes on account  of the blockade will hive the  item of tolls refunded1 them.

The -steamship Minnesota, the  largest vessel plying on the Pacific, set sailc from Seattle this  week with a capacity cargo for  Great Britain. The Minnesota  after unloading in tbe United  Kingdom, will be sold and will  not be seen on the Pacific again.  This is the direct result of the  legislation passed recently by the  Jnited States congress which .compels companies operating on the  Pacific to employ only white men  in the crew. The Japanese have  now practically captured the entire trade of the Pacific. X ___ _   ,  ARE YOU MOVING INTO A FLAT  If so, numerous household articles will not be required.
