Tells Thrilling Stories of Fighting (Eueula'l lo the Plnchcr Creek, Ang. II. A. Dohorty of the famous "Pats" was giv- en a royal welcome on his arrival here on Saturday last. ..Mr. Doherty is a nephew of Mrs. Geo. Blake who at one time was a resident of the town, and who left here about four years ago. The relumed veteran enlisted in Winnipeg early in the war, and Joined the Princess. Pats a little, latei1 In- England. He has been so beseiged with menfolk eager to hear every ac- count in detail Unit it was hard for a day or so for a reporter to get a lucid statement. Mr. Doherly performed his initial duty in the trenches in -March 1915, and fought through the historical en- gagement at Ypres. He Is rather mo- dest about claiming crptllt and stated "all you need to say for me is thai I was one of the lucky MO who came out of thai light alive.. A heavy shell struck the parapet in trout of me and I was buried. They dug me out after 1 had been under ground about an hour, and believe me, 1 was about all in." lie is at presenl suffering from a displacement, of his heart and intes- tines as a result, but claims to feel much improved of late. "Tiie Germans pounded the very life out of tile "Pals" at that he continued. "Their artillery was wonderful and we had nothing to op- pose them but rifles. All the boys in the first line trenches were either killed outright, or hurled alive and never recovered. When the Ger- mans struck us in the second line we were successful ill holding them, but they hammered .our .trenches beyond recognition. With only lad rifles we played steadily on their front and pre- vented them from advancing any fur- llier, which if they had succeeded in doing, would have resulted very ser- iously." Mr. Doherty. praises very highly the plendid hospital accommodations ill j England and the manner in which all j the Canadian' wounded are treated by j the people. j This young hero is thoroughly con- vinced that what the people of this country should do is to send money to the Red Cross prisoners of war fund, and instruct them to whom they want the ralibns sent. Provisions sent from this country will never reach them if it is eatable. .Mr. Doherty talking lo a young "fellow in one of the hospllals who had.heen a cap-i live in Germany for many months and lie lold me that the only rations were jnouidy bread and chicken feed. Meat was a rare thing around the prison camp but they managed to get a small porlicn twice a week.. The chicken feed the prisoners are given is soaked ,nd the mouldy bread is given to them In chunks. They can either eat it or starve to death." (Special to the. Moyie, B. C., Aug. the cam- paign in the Cranbrook riding pro- gresses, it becomes apparent that the Liberal candidate Dr; J. H- King, is gaining strength daily, while the Con- servative is moeling Indifference on the part of his own following; and many aid-time Conservatives are in open revolt and in many cases can- vassing for the Liberal candidate. The reasons lii the Moyie section ap- pear to bo the personal popularity "of the Liberal and the fact that tho trunk line .roads are in. a deplorable condition... The citizens of Moyie voiced their sentiments at the Liberal rally held In' Kootenay hall Saturday evening, when Dr. King spoke to a 'large gathering. James Roberts, miner, of the once famous mining town, -Occupied the chair. He congratulated the citizens of Moyie in turning out in such large numbers. Aa a citizen believing in the rights at tile people he went on record as being opposed to the Bow- ser government and machine rule in this province. The Dominion Trust swindle, which brought ruin to many homes of wqrkingmen was a blot on the fair name' of British .Columbia. The meeting was addressed by C. R. Ward, Dr. King and J. P. Parrell Dr. King was greeted-witb applause.

Buying Farms Without Money How The Doukhobors Do (Contributed.) siiad often seen it in the advertis- ing, columns. I'm hound to say 1 did not pay much attention to it, I figur- ed that the firm would be worth about the advertised ampunt; but .that IB all wrong IaAvas ,simply ignor- ant Next time 1 see 'how to buy a farm without r shall think; Cowley and one King "Peter of a'cer- tain sect of Greek Church Quakers, and lock myself'because'he thought of it first. It is all true, you can, buy a farm without money, given the right kind of and some mortgages on which the interest has or lias not been paid for a few years ami it can be done. the Duukhobors are doing it it, Cowley and doing it in targe chunks. They did it likewise at Nel- son and no doubt they will do it ih.a whole lot more places1; The man behind the gun is one Peter Varigin. He holds the pretty, does Peter, and he has what right kind pE; Jiist as soon as he finds a' land that looks like a land potontjally flowing with milk and Cowley is just simply'moves in and, if the mortgages are right, possesses it. This marvellous land of Canada is as you know, largely covered with mortgages. Peter snuffs them out. The borrower, often is an. old timer, whom new times have left and Peter sniffs hitn the j next thing you know, the communis- j tic sect of Doukhobors has politely j assumed the liability and promised to j pay the former owner a certain bal- ance in a certain number of years, and simply swarms of fJoukhobors blow in from everywhere, Doukhohors driving bands of cattle, Doukhobors driving bands of horses, and Doukho- bora driving big steam tractors, live or six of them, and Doukhobors driv- ing "nails; fifteen or sixteen of into lumber for a Doukhobor cleva: tor, also Doukhobors driving hard bargains, fifty or sixty of them. It's all happening at Cowley, and If the local and provincial authorities see to it that said Honkhobors observe; the laws of this Dominion and bring' their children up as good Canadians, I don't see why it isn't almighty good for everybody, M> sojourn at Cpwtey-did not cease to furnish me with ropy when I was thrpijgh with the Donfchbliora. Nay, mj Iherp is morn at Cowley than tho Doukhobors There's ft aian there in i the creamery business who appears not to worry an awful lot over the Doukhobor main feature in his landscape is the Crow's Nest! Pass and Its like good things, do Vbe miners, so Jlr. Cream- ery man shins them oodles of milk and butter and cream and in order to meet their demand he has to ship cream in from outside points and now he thinks he, wants more cream at home, so he is bringing in the best milch cows he can buy in Ontario and handing them, out at cost to his pat- rons on credit and'taking his pay in he is paying more for cream than any other creani purchaser hi Alberta.
