A letter from the Post Office Department, Canada, states that arrangements have been made whereby the ordinary rate of two cents
per ounce, applicable to all letters
sent from Canada to the United
Kingdom, will apply to letters addressed to British and Canadian
troops on the continent. The rate
on ordinary letters from Canada
for the continent is five cents for
the first ounce, and three cents for
each subsequent ounce, so that this
extension of the 2 cents au ounce
rated to letters addressed to our
soldiers on the continent, is a decided reduction in favor of correspondence going to the soldiers.

"Your description, Mrs. dray, I assure you, is excellent. Well, now, tell

which sho allowed to drug on the

of musquash .'
"1 don't, quite know what that is,"
said Newte. "I know most things, but
1 don't know whal tnat is."
"it is a very fashionable sort of
fur, sir. On her head she hud a
toiiuo, willi a long ostrich feather,
whicli fell over one ear. Altogether,
Bho was a shabby, disreputable looking woman."
"Thank you, Mrs. Gray,  You have

"What, sir���whnt. can you do?"
"[ hope, eventually,    to bring you
back Miss Barbara Chance,"
"Tonight, sir?   Tonight:"
"Oh! It is a matter that will require
great care, but I soe a gleam of daylight."
Newte went back to the room
where Sunningley and Osborne were
wailing for him.
"f know the name under which this
woman   goes,"  he  said.    "She  calls
herself 'Florence Dunbar.'    She    is
wanted by the police; sho has been a
shoplifter and a thief for years.; but
. though   there  have    boon    a   great
many warrants out against hor, and
several of the besi of our police, have
tried to arrest her, thoy have never
succeeded,   lier  cleverness   is  amazing���she Booms to glide away just as
you are going to lay your hands on
her.   But, anyhow, I shall go straight
with   this   information    to   Scotland
Yard���it  will   redouble  tlieir  efforts
to  put florenee  Dunbar  In  prison;
and, now, I think you will nol see me
tonight,  gentlemen,    unless    1  have
fresh news.   Believe nie, 1 shall work
day and night    in this business, und
so will the Scotland Yard authorities,
when they know what l have discovered."
"Excuse me,' said Sunningley.
'-Her name is nol Florence Dunbar."
"It (loos not mailer whal she called
herself lu the past she is Florence
Dunbar at present, without a doubt, i
nearly caught hor one day, but she
slipped from me and disappeared���
she Is never iwo nights la the samo
place���that's what makes it so difficult to gei her. However, you will
hoar from mo early In the morning,
and if (hero is auy fresh news, I can
ring you up al any moment."
But, although Sunningley could not
sloop, nnd although Osborne paced the
floor of his room backwards and forwards during the whole of that terrible, weary night, neither wus rung
up   by  any  of tho  detectives.    Tho
fact is, they were all working as hard
as  they  could, but they knew they
were working to try and catch  one
Of the  cleverest  thieves in Loudon.
For Florence Dunbar as she now called herself���although she had al least
twenty aliases���had sunk from bad to
worse since that fatal day when she
got  her  husband  to  announce  that
she was dead, and when she herself,
was confined in an Italian prison. The
hardening of her heart  and tlie developing of her intellectual faculties
was  something enormous.    She  had
joined long ere this, n gang of the
cleverest  burglars   in   London,   who,
respecting her powers, put her lo do
the most delicate and difficult jobs.
As to the police���she simply smiled
at them.   It is true, after she had left
W. N. U. 1034
' Italy and como to Loudon, she was for
five years undergoing penal servitude,
but, since then, she bad been trco, re-
! celvlng her money regularly, and llv-

Job of her life" before hor.  If there
was ono soft spot In hor houri, il was
for the little baby girl who Bhe had
soon just before her husband look her
to Naples.  The tiny face, the rosebud

lho litllo arms around hor nook, hnd

Thoso good things had, alas, died out
on account of the badness o! her own
life, bul, nevertheless, hor feeling for
Barbara had never quite ceased io

lirst for herself, and secondly because
sho knew that hor guardians would
offer a most considerable reward for
her,  Uut there were several difficulties lu the way   8he must nol, in hor
own person, attempt to restore  Barbara  to  Barbara's  friends;   for,   if
sho did bo, her own lot would bo prison nnd another term ol penal servitude   Sho didn't want that- she liked
lho excitement of her life���she liked
to go about in omnibuses  and,  un-
porceived,  unnoticed,  secure,  if  not

from almost  every person    sho  sat

churches and take money and Jewels
from the ladies who were worshipping
there!    Her cleverness was    beyond
bounds;  not u  day passed  that sho

She had her regular "receiver,"    us
such dreadful  women  are called, in
tho East, End of London,  who paid
her so much for hor goods In solid
cash; she always, therefore, had abundance of money to live upon.    Now
that  she  liad  secured  Barbara,  she
was, however, a little puzzled
Sho  determined,  first    of    all,  to
change hor  name.- Florence  Dunbar
must not have anything    to do with
the case. The police wore looking for
Florenee  Dunbar |   but   they    knew
nothing, thoy had never known anything  against  a  respectable,  quietly
dressed middol aged widow woman of
the name of Clara .Johnson; therefore,
for the time being, Florence Dunbar
became Clara Johnson. She put awuy
her finery, and wore a neat black coat
and skirt, which  fitted her splendid
figure   perfectly;   instead    of    lier
showy  hat,  with  its  long  plume of
ostrich feathers, sho wove a neat little
bonnet,   lied   under  her  chin;     she
washed the rouge and powder from
her faco and the dye from hor hair���
whicli was still very thiol; and abundant���and allowed her grey looks io ap-
pear  neatly  folded  on   each   side  of
her brow   Altogether, she seemed a
most, respectable  woman;   and when
Hob Flick met her in the course uf
that afternoon, he passed lier by without in the least recognizing her. She
said to herself;
"I know what he has been after.
He Is one of the traitors iu the camp.
I shall speak to" and she murmured
a name under her breath���it was a
celebrated name in the world of
thieves���"Yes, I'll do that," she muttered. "And now the next thing Is to
get some clothes for Barbara and
take her out of England Immediate-
To  do  this,  however,  she  was obliged |q call in some outside help; and
after  considering   everything    most
carefully,  she decided that the best,
person for her purpose was Kate .lessop.   Kate had, In reality, i ut her on
the  track  of  Barbara;   she owed  a
great  deal,   therefore,  to  ?'.ato, and
she wus determined lhat Kale should
help her in  the present emergency.

now.   oHwever, ns she i-xpressed il,

Into his restaurant and ordered a cup
of leu; she sat at a small marble topped tabic, not far from the door; no
one noticed her. She wore a plain gold
ring on hor wedding linger -no other
' els of any sort; she looked o mosl,
respectable,  somewhat  sud,  ladylike

Ihroo times, hul did not recognize hei'
In the least.    Presently ,<nto herself
came  up and  asko-'   if she  could  do
anything for hor.    Airs. Dunbar    who
was now   Airs. Johnson,  asked  for a
cup of ton and a slier of broad and
butter,   Kate wont off i.nd got what
tlie  woman  nsked  for;     when    she
brought It, Airs. JJSnbttr made a certain sign wiih her left hand.   Kale
felt herself lurning as white as death.
Airs.   Dunbar   said   'u   low- very  low
"Aleet me outside here, .the moment
you are free. When will that be?"
Kate mentioned the hour; she
could not make out what the woman
was after, und was very milch alarmed. She hud not heard at this time
anything about the kidnapping of poor
little Barbara, lt so happened that
this was Kate's early night for leaving
the restaurant. The neatly dressed,
respectable widow woman left the
shop, walked a little way up Victoria
street, and came hack again. In a
minute she was joined liy Kate Jessop.
"Oh!     Airs.  Dunbar!   You  did  give
me a turn.   What are you up to now?"
"What am I up to? Now, let mc talk
to you; I want you to help me. First
of all, I have got her."
"What, Miss Barbara!   Heaven help
I    "Yes.    Aren't you glad?  The dark-
| blue sill; and the sovereign are yours,
although you had nothing to do with
the management of this littlo job. I
saw you wore nol up to It, so 1 took
the matter Into my own bunds. Now,
listen, Kate, I want you to help mo,

Do you ihlnk, for a moment, I would
Injure ber'.' Ihu I want your help.
Will you give It to me?"
"If Ii has nothing to do with MIbb

soli in her voice,
"Of course, it lias overythlng to do

widow woman, as she appeared, look

whicli she extracted three sovereigns,

"May I see Aliss Barbara when i

"My girl, you shall l ol only soo her,
but In nil probability I shall lako you

girl���my own child���to 1)0 happy, and
sho loves you. I want to leave London tonight. We shall get out of
London, whatever happens, this evening, and will bo, by ibis time tomorrow, In Pnrls. Of course I shall pay

"You astonish mo, ma'am, And what
am 1 to call you?"
"My name nt present is Clara Johnson���Mrs. Johnson���a widow Indy
whose husband died a year ago. That
Is all you are to know about mo. Now
go, and be quick!"
Knto went; her heart was beating
and she trembled all over. What lay
before her? What new scones of llfo?
No moro of that dreadful restaurant;
no more or Ferrls'S coarse attentions;
no more of watching In vain for Barbara's sweet face; but to be always
with Barbara; to go abroad with her
to foreign lands; to live over ngain the
rapturous life she had lived at the
Rectory nt, Worthlngton-on-the-HUl,
Oli, dear! Oh, dear! What wonderful luck was hers! Of course, she
would do lt! For Barbara must be
happy with her own mother, and really the woman looked quite respectable
and marvellously changed In her present dross. Why didn't sho always
dress like that? It was, too, too extraordinary. Kato went off on her errand.
Llllle did she care for what sho was
giving up. Evi^n Iho young man, with
whom she walked out, was less than
nothing to her nt that moment, for
Miss Barbara came tlrst.

New Fisheries' Regulations to be
Framed By Conference
New regulations are to be drawn up
by the fisheries conference at Ottawa,
to govern lishing in the boundary
waters of the Gulf of Georgia and the
Fraser river, whence lhe salmon proceed to tbe spawning grounds. These
regulations are necessary on account.
of the fact that the fisheries treaty
between the 1'nited States and Canada
has fulled to become operative according to the Canadian view. The present conditions ure not such ns to tend
toward the conservation of the valuable fisheries of the British Columbia
Canadian fishermen are under moie
severe restrictions than Americans.
The fact that the production of tlie
British Columbia fisheries for the last,

Canada of $3H,207,:U8, emphasizes the
Importance of strict conservation.
Bedouins and "Kultur"
The Bedouins, who are reported to
have invaded Egypt, have many poinis
to recommend them as allies to tho
kaiser. They have been robbers since
the days ct Job, with their hand
against every man, and when other]
enemies fail they prey upon one un-1
qther. Their idea, at treaties is thoroughly German. They readily make
peace under compulsion, but their
proverb declarea "a salt covenant is
binding only so long as tlie salt ls in
the stomach." On one point, however,
they need Instruction in Kultur. They
never make night attacks in case, by
mistake, the women's quarters should
be Invaded, and to injure or offend the
enemy's womenfol!: is regarded as
dishonorable.���London Chronicle.

Sir Louis Mallett, Former Ambnisador,
Tells of Turkey's Plans and Hopes
That Turkey will play to give Germany assistance throughout lhe whole

will bo restricted to keeping a largo
force of British in Egypt and u big
Russian army engaged on her northern
frontier, is the opinion of Sir Louis
Mullett, recently Britisli Ambassador
at Conslalnllnoplo, expressed lu an Interview.
"There can be no holy war, despite
tho efforts of Germany to embroil India, Egypt and other islamic countries by spreading false reports that
such a wnr is being deelu.-od," said
Hlr Louis, "because the Turkish Mo-
hammedans would bo obliged in sucti

"It ls true that tho groat ninss of
Turks believe that tho Kaiser is a
Mohammedan. Also they believe that
they will bo able to seizo Egypt,
whicli, tho Germans told them, is Ihelr
Alsace-Lorraine, and a goodly slice of
Russia. From what 1 heard on the
subject ln Constantinople, I do not believe tlio Germans readily share the
Turkish delusion that they can Invade Egypt, but they naturally foster
plans l'or this invasion, In the hope of
compelling tlio British to keep a
large force In Egypt.
"The same is true of the attitude
toward Russia. They are tho most
gullible people on earth, and the
Turks are quite ready to believe that
thoy can overrun Russia, and, of
course, their efforts to do so mean
that two or three Russian army corps
must be subtracted from the troops

They were discussing a chap who
belongs to the genus Banquet Bore.
He is one of the men who are frequently heard in after dinner addresses. No man who has heard him once
and is present at a function where he
is called on for a speech again but
slides dejectedly down in liis seat.
But the Banquet Bore never gets a
glimmer of th0 real teolings of his

his virtuous platitudes and his flamboyant schoolboy periods, until his
auiience is on the verge of exhaustion.

Duration of the War
A distinguished French officer who
is in a position to estimate the porb-
abilities, does not expect to see the
Germans driven back across the Rhine
until February, 1'JIS, or the conclusion ot peace before 1917. This tore-
cast should show the necessity ot
more active recruiting in this country. There are thousands ot men who
have not Joined the army because they
honestly believe that tlio war will be
over befori they can tiro a shot.
Oiose who are hesitating to enlist for
this reason may bo reassured. The
nation must be prepared to place
more than a million men in the Held
and to maintain its armies at that
figure by making good tlie constant
wastage ot the battlefield. Only at
this price can final success be purchased, the liberty of Europe secured,
and the existence of the British empire
preserved.���London Dally Mall.

New British Possessions
The final absorption of Cyprus into
the British empire reminds us that
the sovereignty of that island ls still
a matter of dispute. Leo VI., last
King of the Lusignan line���who was
also King of Armenia���was carried
captive to Jerusalem, and afterwards
sent to Paris, where ho died ln 1803
His descendants have frequently asserted their rights to the crown ot
Armenia anil Cyprus. The last well
authenticated claimant was Guy de
Lusignan, who died in a Paris cellar
in 1795, but a claim to direct descent
was put forward so recently as 1884
by Archbishop Khorian, who represented the Armenians at tlie Congress ot Berlin nnd who set up n
modest claim that the Island of Cyprus should be made over to liis family as heirs to the throne of Armenia.
One of the Archbishop's brothers
married an English lady while an-
wedded Mile, de Nosrols, well known
In Paris as "Princess Marie de Lusignan of Cyprus, Jerusalem and Armenia."
Jim's Kittens

Still, their kindly little hearts had

been tabooed at Ihelr liouie, Ihey entreated wildly to he permitted to keep
the kitten. Tlieir parents' hearts were
touched, mul they were promised another and more gentle feline. Hut to
no avail. Thoy wanted the homeless
anil helpless little waif that they liad
found In the backyard.
So, at last, they wcr-J told they
mlglii keep it. The maid of all work

The Integrity of China
Though Tsing Tan will, till the close
of the war, remain in possession of the
Japanese, it is certain that It will, in
due course, be restored to China. The
London correspondent of the Liverpool
Daily Post understands that in that
event it is probably that Wol-Hai-Wel
will he given back to China by the
British government. Its secession was
intended as a sort of compensation for
the German acquisition of Klao-cliau,
but its value was sentimental rather
than practical. Our real base in the
Chinese seas Is, of course, Hong Kong,
and very little has been done to convert Wel-Hal-Wel Into a naval arsenal.
Its restoration to its orginal owners
will be ample proof that we have no
designs on the Independence or territory of China. An act of this kind
will do something to dispose of the
German legend that we are animated
by an incessant desire for territory.

Thrilling tales of tho bravery ot

tho following letters.
"Near our treuth," says a soldier
returned from the Aisne, "thero wero

who could stand it no longer. Ho

Until he was about, a quarter of a mile I
away from ub.   Then ho stood up and
zigzagged   toward  another  batch  Ol I
wounded, but thnl was lho end of him.!
The German lire got hotter and hotter.
He was hit badly, and with Just a
slight  upward lllng of his arms he:
dropped to earth like lhe hero ho was.
"Later, lie was picked up with tho |
wounded, but he wus as dead as they
make them out there.    The wounded
men  for whose sake he had risked
nnd lost his life thought a lot of him,
and were greatly cut up at his death.
One of them who was lilt so hard that
he  would never see another Sunday
said to me as we passed the Engineer
chap, who lay with a smile    on his
white face and hud more   bullets in
him  than  would  set    a  battalion  of
sharpshooters    up    in  business    for
themselves, 'He was a rare gootl one,

for   to   have   seen a deed like that, |
and now that I have seen it I don't

what we all felt about it."
The story of the bravery of Corporal Lupin, of Liege, is told by u
Belgian officer.
We wero on the right hank of lhe
Meuse, at Bellalre, in close touch
with the German battery, The musketry on both sides was terrible, All
at once, the Germans adopted new
tactics. They seemed to withdraw
from llieir position, ami we could
distinctly notice their ranks split I ing
as if In great confusion. It was only
to bring up more artillery which had
been rushing from behind. The move
was smartly executed, the ranks
closed again, und for a time Ihey
seemed as if Ihey were going to have
llie advantage over us.
But. now young Lupin hud seen
his chance looming, and what he did
altogether changed the face ot
Like n flash, the boy dashed off under cover of a ditch to the left of
the German battery. At 300 metres
distance lie found shelter behind
wall. lie took aim at the battery in
enfilade, and his Mauser brought
down in quick succession the chief
officer, the under officers, and the
This time real confusion look place
at the German battery, which was
nearly silenced. The Germans, thinking that a whole platoon was now-
attacking them, directed their last
piece ot artillery on the wall, and
with a terrific carsli the wall came
down, burying the brave Corporal
Lupin. The boy's bravery had weakened the German poistion, and it did
not take us long to scatter them and
put another victory on our list.
How Reservist Dobson saved a

Duncan, Now the writer of that
statement is either very foolish or
a cheerful liar. He is a Government paid servant, and should
know that $5.50 is about the limit
the Government pays its employees.
He is very foolish and vain because
he ' 'cackled like a hen laying its
first egg" over the cleverness of the
article in question. Everybody on
the street knew all about it hours
before his paper was printed. We
have been credibly informed that
the City of Duncan did not pay one
dollar to the Government Assessor
for their first assessment, and that
there was only one appeal against
the same, and that was not allowed
by the Court of Revision.
Letter to The Editor
Editor Review
Dear Sir,���Evidently Alderman
Johnston's conscience is pricking
him over the reckless manner in
which he has already squandered
the city's monies.
This Alderman was seen on
Thursday busy filling up a hole on
Union Street. We would like to
know if he was doing this for charity,  or for first mentioned reason,
Anyhow he was doing a working
man out of a few dollars which some
of them so badly need,
When asked by one of them for
the job, he replied that he was
doing it for exercise, in my opinion
it is uot his muscle that needs exercise but his brains, if he has any,
so far we have seen no sign.
How does the Alderman reconcile
his doing the working man out of
a job with his pose as friend of the
worker, and doing him out of a job
at the first opportunity.
I also understandthe A ldermans
action i 11 working for the citv disqualifies his election, and as this is
being taken up seriously[by responsible parties, Courtenay may soon
have the pleasure of dispensing with
the Joke Alderman. Mr. Johnston
takes himself seriously, but he
should know he was only elected
for a joke, but it has turned out the
joke wan on the joker. However,
the citizens still can enforce the
Recall Act.

The City Council had n very quiet
meeting on Monday  evening,   al

of ratepayers present at the opening

After the reading and adoption
of the minutes, communications
were read from C. G. Callin. containing draft of lease, Royal Bank

One from Duiihan i_ Deutcber,
stuliug that they would make a

7 1-2 per cent of the cost. This
was'ordered received and acknowledged.
Accounts from the Board of Trade
for use of ro_m for meeting twice
was received and from J. Thompson
for $22.50 for table and fixtures for
City Hall.
Aid. Robertson repored that the
utilities committee had met Messrs.
Dukane& Deutchers representative
but decided it was too early to go
into details.
Aid. Johnston reported that the
Royal Bank would advance $500 at
8 per cent, and the Bank of Co.il-
merce at 7 per cent. It was decided to borrow tlie money from the
Bank of Commerce, and the necessary by-law was read a fir.it and

good thing for a transient auctioneer to bring a bankrupt stock here
and sell it cheaply by auction._

the resident traders paid taxes and
license fees, and should be protected
against transients, who were here

also thought that the greater

was too filthy to think about.

Mr. Haywaad on
Agricultural Loans
In speaking in the house last
week he trusted that it would not
be made a political football. One
of the most vital questions confronting; tie country to-day was that of
land production. At present the
province was not feeaiilg itself, and
until it did so efforts to secure a
remedy should not cease. Tlie
question of rural prosperity was
not a local one. It was staring
everyone in the face, and the failure
to solve it was like a cancer eating
irto the life of the country. While
for the ten years prior to 1911 the
total average of production per
capita in British Columbia was 4
per cent, it was 24 per cent for the
whole of Canada and 32 per cent
for the United States. The g'ovetn-1
ment must find a system of financ-
ing greater production. It was!
not generally realized that every
business revolved around agricul-
tural production. Permanent pros-j
perity could be obtained in no
other wav.
Conditions Affecting Settlement   |
There were three conditions ou
the American continent which
militated against successful land
settlement and the fanner ; first,
the conviction that the farmer had
not the same chance to make money
as the man in the city ; second, the
absence of an attractive social life;
third, the disability of smaller
political influence. These applied
to the situation in British Columbia
as well as to the continent as a
Just at present the Liberals were
making much of conditions in this
province in respect to land settlement. He agreed with the premier
that they could not open up the
whole province to the pre-emptor.
The present system which made
road work necessary for the success
of the pre-emptor vas proving a
curse, in his judgment and retarding production.
Loans to Farmers
JS. In any event large sums of money
would be required for the development of these lands. There was
very little stock in the country, In
respect 11 loans to farmers, he did
not advocate that money should be
spent on land clearing. There
were already thousands of acres of
cleared unproductive laud. When
these had been occupied, it would
be time enough to talk of land
clearing. He was favorable to
loaning of money to frrmers on
lands whicli were already producing, and for the increase of stock,
which was very limited, and out of
all proportion to the land.
Now'1 the time to prepare for next year's harvest
Your harvest will be bigger, better next year if
you put in more time on the farm. Drive a Ford���
and reduce from a matter of hours to a matter of
minutes, time spent in those necessary trips to

Situation In Canada
After giving an exceedingly instructive review of the world position, Mr.
Meredith said of Can*.da that agriculture wus prosperous, but a general
suspension of new undertakings Is apparent. At the sum., time ho thought
thai as regards unemployment our position Will compare favorably with that
of other countries.
Mr. Meredith pointed out that fortunately it lias not hec-n necessary l'or
Canada to resort to a moratorium and
closed his remarks in the following
i.opeful vein:
"War and other adverse conditions
are bound to retard our progress. A
period ot rest and recuperation may
be expected, hut the futurj depends
to a great extent upon the spirit with
which the people meet the changed
"Economy and prudence in the matter of expenditure, and an earnest effort to Increase production of exportable articles, will in tlmo usher in an
era of active trade and renewed prosperity,"
Stands Strain Well
Sir Frederick Williams-Taylor, after pointing oul that tho Bank ot
Montreal was !i7 years old, spoke ot
ihe .great stability of the institution
and later reviewed Canadian condl-
lions as a whole and by each province.
Speaking of the war's effects he
said in part:
"The outstanding result nas been
the instantaneous stoppage of the supply of British capital to which we had
become so accustomed that sight was
too frequently lost of its importance
as a factor in tlio development ot the
"Money I'rom this source flowed to
us in auch increasing volume that
during a considerable ante helium
period it amounted in round figures to
at least $26,000,000 per month. Canadian public borrowings from the London
money market for the spven months
ending 31st July were $17,000,000.
Since lhe outbreak of tho war the inflow of such capital Las ceased."
Our Own Resources
How to face the loss of this money
and continue to expand were serious
problems. Sir Frederick said we were
now getting a little money from the
States, and added:
"it is obvious lo everyone that wc
are cast upon our own resources, that
we are on trial, and that our future
development will depend in uo small
measure upon the conditions in which
we emerge from this trying ordeal.
"The longer the duration of the war,
the more will the colonial props of
lhe empire, including Canada, suffer,
but good will come out of evil, for
onr energies will be turned to the development of our great natural wealth
particularly our vast agricultural resources and we can then look forward
with confidence to eventually emerging from present conditions a wiser
people with our affairs on a healthier,
more normal and sounder basis."
Big Gain in Assets
The haul, uf .MontVeal, itself, came
through the trying year with Hying
colors and its total assets aer now
$259,400,000 compared with $241,700,-
000 a year ago. An interesting feature
of the statement is the fact that deposits are considerably higher than
they were last year. Deposits bearing
interest are now $154,500,000, an increase ot $10,000,000, while non-inter-
esl hearing deposits are $42,600,000,
a loss of $3,000,000. This shows a net
gain of $7,000,000.
The hank's profits for the year
were $2,490,000, compared with $2,-
648,(iim a year ago. While this is a
small falling off it is insignificant compared with the fine results achieved in
fortiflying the bank's position.
A Big Surplus
It is noticed that the bank loaned
the Dominion government $5,000,000
dming the year and also loaned over
$9,000,1100 to cities, towns and school
districts to help them over a period
that made the raising of money
througb debenture issues exceedingly

The islands, which lie in latitude 56
north, were found to be in a somewhat
different position and in greater numbers than marked on the latest charts.
ln its fifteen days' exploration of the
group the party found lt to be ban-en,
but abounding in wild life, including
foxes, Arctic hares and geese
The Laddie left St. John on July
15 last with supplies fo:- Messrs. Fillers and Leduc, who went north in
1913 on au expedition for the Canadian Northern Railway. One of their
chief objects was to endeavor to locate coal beds in some parts of the
Hudson Bay region which could be
utilized in counec'.'on with the railway now being projected to run from
l.epas, Manitoba, to Port Nelson, on
tlie south coast of the bay.
The Laddie, runung north along
ihe Labrador coast, and working her
way through Hudson Strait, found
the explorers on August 19 at Mad-

their utilization of sewage'waste.
