Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 14, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta BIG MAN IN B.C. IS MR. FLUMERFELT His Forefathers Were Dutch, Settled in U. S., and Were U. E. Loyalists. WENT WEST YOUNG A Rich nnd Influential Capitalist, But Unfortunate in Provincial Politics, Sidelights on Men and.Vqmen. inilie Public Eye PAPER MEN LIVE TO OLD, OLD AGE Making, Selling, or Printing Paper Seems to Ensure Long Life. By ARTHUR HAWKES. FLUMERFELT Is a venerable Butch name-not a Dcutscl; j . patronymic. Tlio Honorable A. C. Flumerfelt comes by his Brltannl-oIkiii t>s honestly. Ills family reach-od Canada via New Amsterdam (as the Dutch called New York) and the American Revolution. Mr. Flumerfelt van joint chairman of tho Win-thc-War and National Unity Convention In Montreal, to which ho camo from British Columbia with twenty-two otiicr Westerners. Wliilo Sir Hlhbert TuprJer. prepared to help tho Liberals to destroy the Bowser Government, Mr. Flumerfelt was prevailed upon to como to the resells as B.C.'a Minister of Finance. Ho ran In Victoria and was snowed under. Mr. Flumerfelt's career as a constant Easterner ended at Cobourg about thirty-five years ago. Cobourg was tho seat of the Methodist college which has become^ transmogrified Into Victoria of Toronto University. A Methodist distinction still suffuses Cobourg. Drivo around that pleasant town and you will bo shown the house of tho son-in-law of Dr. Mor-ley Punshon, the peerless orator of Methodism, whose pastorate of the Metropolitan was coincident with his marriage to his deceased wife's sister, a legal transaction in Canada, but, until lately, a left-handed offence In England. Possibly the eminence of Methodism In Cobourg was a conspirator with Divine grace In making Mr. Flumerfelt a member of a society class-a name which Is reminiscent of the fact that John Wesley was an ordained Anglican clergyman who never forgot the Church from which ho was digged with a Moravian spade. At all events, there Is this differenco botween Wesley and Flumerfelt-that tho reverend began as an Anglican nnd concluded as a Methodist, and tho honorable began as a Methodist ond is concluding as an Anglican. Big Man on Coast THE OCTOGENARPANS Sir Mackenzie Bowell, Active at Ninety-Four, Is the Most Extraordinary Example. I rR. FLUMERFELT went to Winnipeg when the first boom was looming. Ho saw the city hustle up to a population of over thirty thousand and then decline to nineteen thousand. Shoes were Btill tho Flumerfelt line, In collaboration with the paTtner who had inspired the trek from the Lako Ontario shore to tho Rod River bank. Ambition was never allowed to slumber in the Flumerfelt breast. . Tho,retail manner was discarded- for tho wholesale style. In due time'tho Flumerfelt concern was turned over to tho Amcs-Hoklen people, whose pockets had even more staying-Quality .than their footwear. The superintendent of Grace Sun day school, to whom Secretary Flumerfelt reported, was tho benign gentleman who, last week, .was elect-eel president of tho Canadian Manufacturers' Association at the Winnipeg convention, to wit, Mr. S. R. Parsons of Toronto. Tho superintendent returned East, hnd the seorotnry went to the extreme West, He became a financier. He Was for awhile In the Kootenays What he didn't learn about tho good promotion side of mining wouldn't fill a half-sheet of notepaper. Ho went; into enterprise after enterprise; Jnadq successes of practically all of them. : He Is a director of the Can ndinit :' Blink of Commerce, which means that he is the British Colum bian guldo, philosopher nnd friend of Sir Edmund Walker, Mr, Zebulon Lash, nnd Sir Joseph Wesley Flavolle. Victoria Ifi his city. If a knighthood comos.hls/ way,, well; It will bo accepted a compliment to Industry, Integrity, and 'intelligence. Mr. Flumerfelt is physically vigorous, but not bodily Immense. Ho looks younger than ho is. His deportment invites confidence whether ho is vocal or sllont. By G. B. VAN BLARICOM. F you want to attain a ripe- old ago and bo healthy and happy, active nnd aggressive, get Into tho paper game. Havo something to do with tho manufacture, handling, sale, or printing of paper. Look over tho octogenarians and nonagenarians connected with the business, and not one of them Is thinking of withdrawing to a llfo of ease nnd leisure. Hero Is tho list- Howell, Booth, Adam Brown, Richard Brown, Briggs, Millcn, Davis, and Southam,. the latter the "kid" of the group, although in hla . eeveijity-fourth year. Sir Mackenzie Bowell, of th* Belleville Intelligencer and former-premier of Canada, is now In hls^ nlnsty-fourth year, and tho oldest, active working newspaper man In the world. J. R. Booth, of Ottawa, the millionaire news print manufacturer nnd lumberman. Is In his ninety-first year. Adam Brown, postmaster of Hamilton, is of like ago. What has ho to do with tho paper game? asks some one. Well, he has been handling dailies and weeklies, catalogues nnd letters In the post-office of the Ambitious City for over a quarter of a century. Richard Brown, of Brown Bros., Limited, stationery and bookbinding, passed his eighty-third milestone the other day. Rev. Dr. Briggs, book steward of the Methodist Book and Publishing House, is In his _lghty-flrst year. George H. Millen, president of the E. B. Eddy Co., of Hull, tho widely-known paper manufacturers, is in his seventy-ninth year. W. R. Davis, editor and proprietor of the Advocate, Mitchell, Ont., in in his seventy-sixth year, and has been at the helm for fifty-seven years. William Southam, proprietor of tho Hamilton Spectator,' who, along with his sons, has a controlling interest in daily publications in several cities in Canada, and also conducts largo job printing, establishments, is in his seventy-fourth year. Ho is the "boy" of the paper octette, whose average ago is nearly eighty-three. With the exception of Mr. Davis, of Mitchell, who Is handing over tho management of hi3 journal to his son, owing to Ill-health, all are sprightly of step, erect of carriage, and alert In movement. Kaiser Dashes Around In Train Constantly He Has No Settled Headquarters But Keeps on the Jump- Afraid of Air Raids-Very Much Depressed by Bad News-What His Train Is Like.

IE Kaiser has no settled hond quarters- Since the outbreak i of tho war bo has kept continually on the move, rarely staying moro than a week at any place, and often only a day. But the place wherever the Emperor may chance to bo Is the official German headquarters. The Emperor has spent a considerable portion of his time in the Imperial train since tho outbreak of war-indeed, it might bo regarded as his most permanent headquarters. I was taken over it by a Dr. Von Nled-ner, one of the doctors of tho Imperial household, while the Emperor was at Neusladt. It consists of five saloon coaches, two kitchen coaches, a rable car, six sleeping coaches, nnd five luggage wagons. Two saloons-one used as n smoking car-aro given up to the personal use of the Kaiser. The other three saloons aro used respectively as a car for the secretaries, a dining car, writing nnd smoking car for tho equerries, and a servants' car. The Kaiser has not ceased since the outbreak of the war to satisfy his never-ending desire for holding New Controller of Naval Sup. plies Only Civilian to Have Both Those Titles. imagine him saying "Now you get tho Kaiser," emphasizing his corn-': Great military functions, and the giv- mand with a shake of his hand and the expression of his face. This is probably the most unusual photograph ever taken of the Britrsh King, and is one of the best to arrive In this country In years. The aviator In the picture is Captain Hucks, one of England's premier airmen. The King was greatly interested in the performances of Captain Hucks and other aviators whiles visiting an aeroplane field near London. Ho was specially iniiuiwi-livc about safeguards for protecting their lives. As commander-in-chief of Great Britain's forces, land, sea, and air-he naturally displays the greatest interest in ail that concerns these branches of the service. Recently ho spent a day at an aeroplane construction shop Inspecting the plant.

He has come with great eagerness. It is reported that from tho time the post was offered to him by Premier Lloyd Georgo until bis actual sailing for America only 33 hours elapsed. Newly appointed the head of the TSritish War Mission to tho United States, Lord Northcliffe Will try to co-ordinate the work of tho several British organizations already established in this country. Lord Northcliffe knows exactly where Great Britain made her mistake, nnd he consequently is prepared to warn America away from those mistakes. A short time prior to sailing ho dictated the following statement: "Tlio United States has been an over-rich corporation tjiat invited trouble among hungry competitors. Competition between nations takes tho form of war. If England had had a mild military insurance there would have been no war. We were like you, eternally talking about money, business or territorial expansion. Tho Germans fell upon us. Tho curious fact nbout life is that the richer people become the more they preach pence. It pleases them timl their pockets. We were all purse and no fist. 'Your position was even worse, because, much to-the annoyance of the multitude, a certain number among us did Insist upon a modern navy, although some of our richest pooplo, as well as those most politically l-strong, advocated a reduction of tho floet. "This war has shown that expert officers can soon train mobs into armies, provided that '.armies may I como In the air and may one day como under the water. If in the early days of tho war the Germane had had brains to land 60,000 troops from aeroplanes on England and dig themselves in, instead of fooling with n gas bag Zeppelins, we should have had a trouble very difficult to eradicate, "If wo had spent as much on the right kind of preparedness each year as we now spend in two weeks of the war (our daily cxpendlturo is $30,-000,000) this particular war could not have happened." Lord Northcliffo's public career has been a varied and colorful one. Isaac P. Mareosson, tho noted magazine writer, says; of him: Northcllffo has done all that Greeley or Dana desired, that Pulitzer planned, that Hearst attempted. In a word, ho is the successful composite of what every great American publisher or editor wanted to be. Whether he is a crisis monger, merchant of clamor, or prophet of panic and depression (as his enemies make him out); or whether he is the voice of democracy, safeguard of public welfare (as. his friends and supporters attest), one fact is certain: He is the liveliest and most vital human entity in England; a man, alternately praised and damned, who, by the vast changes that he has wrought, must be regarded as the Warwick of this war. If he lived in America ho would bo a President -maker. Tlio career of this man-as definitely self-mado as Rockefeller or Edison- Is a roveiation of organnlzed efficiency adapted to national service that is not without its significant lesson for the United States, as she stands at the' threshold of her war travail. ing of elaborate and costly banquets. Dr. Nicdner, who told me of this, was severely critical of his Imperial mas-tor's conduct in doing so. In these days," he said, "when the most dire distress prevails in many parts of Germany and sorrow is everywhere, that the Emperor should give those costly banquets is a most regrettable thing, nnd one that would fill many people with indignation If they knew of it." The Emperor is greatly affected by the character of tho news he receives. If it is bad he is often profoundly depressed by It, If it Is good he is wildly overjoyed. No news during tho past eighteen months had a moro depressing effect on him than tho announcement of the destruction of tho two Zeppelins in the air attack on England last November- Tho Kaiser was at Cologne when the,English official announcement of tho destruction of the two airships reached him. Often Very Depressed IN tho morning he had a message from the German Admiralty informing him that an attack had been made on England by six airships, but that only four nad returned. The receipt of this news did not much disturb the Emperor, for it was a common enough thing for..some airships of a raiding squadron to return to their bases much later than others. But when the Kaiser learnt the contents of English communiques he was deeply affected. On returning to his headquarters he went to tho room used ns his private writing-room, where all the latest war news was put on typed slips on a long board covered with green silk. Ho glanced quickly at tho slip headed "English Official." Captain Weissenrode and Dr. Niedner were standing just behind him when he read it. He turned to them and said, "That Is very bad news-very bad news." Then ho dropped into a chair and sat In silence. Ho was to have dined that night with a General Winterfelt, who was In charge of the military dlsiriet a I Cologne, hut he sent a message to him to say In- recrrottod he could not go, and dined in his private room at ltr.'idqiiartor.s. ('apt.. YVoissenrodo and Dr. Nir-dner dined with him, and the Emperor srnrcely touched his dinner- Uo tal|;od the whole while of the destruction of the Zeppelins. "It means," ho said after a long pause, nnd speaking very slowly, "the destruction of something more than the two airships. If our airships can bo brought down as easily as the English appear to be able to bring them down now, It means that our air squadron.'! havo become useless as a weapon of attack." ' , The Emperor telegraphed to Count Zeppelin to como, to r.cc !::m, but tho Count was ill nnd could not come; perhaps he did not wish to see the Emperor just then! The whole of the next day tho Emperor remained in a deeply depressed condition; he ate nothing at all, but drank a lot of coffee and occasional liqueurs, ond smoked Incessantly. Afraid of Air Raids tN the evening Generals Ludendorff have a conference with the Emperor. "Their arrival," said Dr. Niedner. "made him forget for a moment about the lost Zeppelins and saved him. I believe, from a bad nervous breakdown." The Emperor has-a great horror of being caught in an air raid. Tills Is besetting fear with him, when at any place that is in the least likely to be bombed by allied airmen. Onco the Kaiser said to Dr. Nled ner: I cannot Imagine a. more horrible denth than to be killed in a house when bombed by airmen." And yet the Emperor has frequently expressed the wish to witness the bombardment of London or other big English city by Zeppelins. The Kaiser at one time every week, wherever ho was. used to receive full reports from different centres in Germany relating to the ntato of the food supplies for the civilian population. On one occasion the Kaiser, after spending the greater part of the forenoon in going through tho food reports, flung the papers from him in n rage, and turning round to one of his secretaries exclaimed: "Oh, curse the people! If they can't get food they must starve!" Tho secretary repeated the remark' to some of the Emperor's equerries, and tho story got about. It was printed in a Socialist paper in Cologne, with the result that the editor wan Imprisoned and tho paper closed down. The story was no doubt the direct cause of tho riot that occurred at Cologne last May when tho troops fired on tho rioters, killing half a dozen. There Is no doubt from all I heard that the Kaiser has keenly felt the loss of Germany's colonies. "To our colonies!" is a toast that Is drunk, every night at the Kaiser's bead-quarters. From all I heard It ap pears to have taken tlio.place for the moment, at all events, of the famous toast of "Der Tag!" wlifcli for good reasons Is not nowadays very often honored either at royal tables or elsewhere. /-j-u to the West, ho stopped over In Calgary to witness tho operation of the Morgan thaler machines, which were then quite a novelty In the Calgary Horald. Tho Herald was one of the first smaller dailies to abolish hand getting, nnd Sir Mackenzie was making casual inquiries about tho feasibility of "the Mergs" for his own plant In Bollovlllo. When being conducted through tho premises ono of tho party bnntcringly asked him if ho could still mako his living as a typo. Without a word, the then First Minister stepped up to a case of type and, picking up a "stick" lying on the frame, started to work, In a few minutos he hud set several lines, and that evening tho Calgary Herald contained a highly Interesting itom under n sixty-point caption, "Premier of Canada sots type in tho Horald office." ''Much Is being published, in every Canadian paper at tho present timo regarding tho urgent peed of producing mors foodstuff. The national resources organizations have no more ardent supporter than Sir Mackenzie Bowell. Most any fine morning he is on the job with hoe and rako making garden. A few weeks ago, it is said, that ho endeavored to get a man to assist him in planting and digging, but hot being successful In his search, the veteran publisher an.d parliamentarian' went at it and did tho job himself.

ROOT BIGGEST AMERICAN WHO WAS NEVER PRESIDENT Selected to Go to Russia Because of His Experience in Diplomacy and His Shrewd, Calm Prudence.

Ho is thus|�s those of "dollar dpi not only assisting In tho great production campaign, but it will bo remembered that, shortly after the war broke out, 'Sir Mackenzie, who is an old military men, and has been, a member ot either tho Upper;jpj; Lower Chamber at Ottawa for titty years, offered his uerviccs in wh'^yojrj capacity he c6uld bo most useful,' And to-day he walks as sturdily and up-, right as tho youngest racrult, . ' i made loss remarkable by a knowledge of his distinguished achievements as a diplomat. It was as Secretary of State under President Roosevelt that Mr. Root won international fame as a shrewd and progressive promoter of international comity, for wliilo liIs enemies foreign relations omncy" tho results of his South Amorlcan tour were accepted generally as of great value, �Elihu Root Is one of tho greatest figures in American life who has not reached the Presidency. As Secretary of War under Moltlnley ho helped lo reconstruct Porto Rico, the Philippines nnd Cuba, Later, as Senator for New York,' ho ondonrcd enormous fees are earned by him in regular practico as counsel. His enemies aro fond of, recalling that ho was the attorney for tho noted Tweed ring and was skilled in showing corporations and politicians "how to avoid conflict with penalties." Only recently, ho was tho leader of tlio Stato Constitutional Convention, chosen to draft a new constitution for New York. The rather humiliating defeat of this constitutional program has led his critics now to ask how ho can expect to frame an ac coptahlo constitution for the peasants of Russie. But It is not ns a practising lawyer nor yet as a frnmor of constitutions that Elihu Root arrives In Petrograd, but rather ns the diplomat of long experience, as tho shrewd, calm coun- 1IKRR have boon some wild and Whirling careers duo to the upheaval brought nbout by the war. but few indeed to equal that of Hir Erin Geddos. the now Con-hollor of Supplies at the British Admiralty. He has boon given the rank of admiral, and Is the only civilian to have won rank as both an admiral and a general. When hostilities broke out on that fateful August night In 191-1, Sir Eric-he was plain '.Mr." then, by the way-was just an ordinary railwayman, holding a responsible position it is true an deputy general manager of tho North-Eastern line In England, but unknownto fame outside his own Immediate circle. Then presently along camo Lloyd Georgo, on the lookout for men "of push and go," and snapped him up for his newly-formed Ministry of Munitions. Next ho became Director-General of Military Railways at the War Office. Then ho was "collared" by Sir Douglas Haig, and whisked off to France, where he was given tin" post of Director-General of Transportation on tho commander-in-chief's staff. His work there embraced the entire reorganization of the transport services, including tho working of docks, main railways, light railways, and waterways. loiter he was appointed to exerciso general supervision over the whole of the transportation of the army for all theatres of war, a tremendous responsibility, but one which Geddes discharged to the satisfaction of all concerned. ' And now ho goes to the Admiralty with almost unlimited powers as regards his own special sphere of work, which will .embrace shipbuilding, ordnance, victualling, and transport for the navy, in addition to the construction of the new standardized ships for tho British mercantile marine. It has been repeatedly stated that Sir Eric is an American- Ho is nothing of the sort, being a Scotsman born nnd bred. Doubtless the mistake arose through his having served his apprenticeship to railroading in the States, where he began as a switchman and worked up through all the grades, handy-man, station clerk, fireman, engine driver, and so on, in order to gain a practical insight from actual experience Into the business he intended to devote himself to. A Varied Career ROM America he went to India, and he was hslping to manage the Roljilkund and Kumaon Railway there when one day a ca'.1egram arrived for him from England. It was from Sir George Glbb, then general manager of the North-Eastem Railway, and now chairman of the Road Board. Glbb had met Geddes at al private dinner party In London when tho latter stayed here for a few days on his way to India, had listened to the young man's story of hla American experiences, and had been greatly struck by them and by the narrator. * He made a mental note of him as a young man that might some day ba useful to him. Hence tha above-mentioned cablegram. "Would youi be willing to accept post Claims Agent on tho N.B.R.?" so the messago ran. ' Geddes cabled back the one word, "Yes." A few hours later ho received another cablegram from Glbb: "When can you start?" Tho answer was: "Starting on Monday"-the cablegram was handod to him late on Saturday. And he was as good as his word. That is Geddes all over- Promptitude in decision has always been one of his main characteristics. Curiously enough Sir Eric was originally intended for the nrmy, and was' educated to that end at tho Oxford Military College and at tho Merchlston Castle School, Edinburgh. But the'"call Of tho wild" was in his blood, and ho practically "ran away" to America, where ho had somo interesting experiences in Western lumber camps, and on the cattle ranges, beforo starting In as a casual laborer In a station yard on the Baltimore and Ohio Railway. Sir Eric is fond of shooting and golf, but fonder still of work. He is forty-ono years old, was married In 1000, and has three sons. constructor of International relations. Mr. Root was born in 1845 at Cl!n� ton, N.Y. After a course in the Unl.. versity of Now York ho was admitted to the Bar In 1SG7. Ho succeeded General Alger as Secretary of War In 1899, nnd later accepted the portfolio of Secretary of State under Robsevelt( succeeding John Hay. hlms'eM still further to the cons-.-r- (sel of prvuier.ee and thg lonjr-ii�ft'l�d MONUMENT TO FOOCS.
