[Published in the newspaper The Ladysmith Chronicle on February 13, 1915, under the section heading: "LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS."]
Mr. E. H. Kemp, for the past eighteen months provincial constable at Ladysmith, has joined the 88th, and will leave for Victoria Sunday to take up his duties in connection with that regiment. Later on he may be transferred to the B.C. Horse, a service for which his long connection with the Northwest Mounted Police particularly fits him. The citizens of Ladysmith while appreciating the commendable patriotic spirit displayed by Mr. Kemp, will deeply regret his departure from this city. During his residence here he has made many friends, all of whom entertain for him the highest esteem both in his capacity as an officer of the peace and a citizen. The position he has occupied since he came here has been a specially hard one, on account of the peculiar conditions prevailing as a result of the strike, but he has at no time shirked his duty, while at the same time he has been discreet in the performance of his duties. That he will distinguish himself in the service in which he will be engaged is a foregone conclusion, and that he will pass through the campaign without injury is the sincere wish of all in which The Chronicle joins.
