nor our ens hutd meeting td be
On Tuosday morning the Chief of
Police and Constable John a rattled
a room In the Queenh lintel, whore
gambling wns supposed io he taking
place.     The   itnnr   wan   found   I netted
but mi gaining entrance seven men
wore found Inside. Ou the mom being
searched, en ids nml chips were I'i until
bidden la a drawer nnd the men wore
arrested and taken to the Police Station where on bolng noarchod, a considerable amount of money and chips
wcre found on them. Hail wnr. iir-
ranged thut night ut $20.00 apiece.
The case eamo up before Magistrate
Arnold on Wednesday morning Mr.
A. II. Nisbet nppoorlng (or tho defence
with the Chief of Pollco prosecuting.
The ease wus remanded until 2*.80
p.m. Upon resumption considerable
spurring took place between ttie Chief
and tho. defending counsel, the latter
olalmlng that no case Kb6" heen made
out. Chief Hersey on the other hand
claimed that it wns a clear cut case,
lt was clearly established that obstruction nnd delay wns caused by
the Inmates of the room nnd when
entry wns at lust gained there was
found to be Instruments of gaming in
the shape of several pucks of cards
and chips, those cards and chips wore
hidden in the room therefore under
Soc. HSU nnd 986 aud also a section in
the 1913 Amendments there wns
prima facie evidence of a disorderly
house nnd proof of the gaming
Counsel for the defendant
at the close of the ease for tlii
cation that tho charge should be dismissed without calling for nny do-
fence. He claimed that the charge,
as tramed by tlie police, was for an
offence tut known undor the Criminal
ovldence of the Police absolutely failed
to show hi any way thut tho Queens
Hotol was a "common gaming house"
miller the Code. It was not shown
thut tho proprietor got any "rake nff"
out of the game and it was nnt even
shown whnt. giim(. if uny. wus being
pluyod. As the Police had sworn,
however, that there wan it delay nr u
couple of minutes in opening the door
of the mom, the magistrate suld this
wus "obstruction" nr the Police and
that undor unothor Section of the Cod«
this wns prima facie evidence that
the place was a gaming house. Evidence waa then given ly two rf tbe
men to the effect that thoy were staying at the hotel and had gone up to the
room of nne of them for u friendly
game of "pitch," that there was no
"rake off" nr payment to the proprietor of the hotel mid that he knew
nothing ahout the gnme. Defendants'
counsel then argued thut on thc whole
ease there wus nbsolutely no evidence
whatever that would justify anyone in
saying that what hud taken place
would mnke the Queens Hotel a gaming phu-e. It wus shown there wus no
"ruke off" to the hotol, that there
was no "banker" In tlie game that
was played nr that uny player had
nny udvuntuge over uny other, Those
nre nil essentials In the make-up of a
"gaming-house" under the Code.
The magistrate in summing up suid
that there bait been reference made
! on both sides to many technicalities
irKiiod | |n,t he was going to take what lie con-
sidored u common sense view of the
case. Hc asked the Chief to withdraw the case against the Uceneee of
the Hotel. Chief Horsey said lie was
willing to withdraw at the request of
the magistrate providing tluit the pres-
Code.   The men ehargod with "unlaw-1 ent oase waB not prejudiced In any

further recommended that In making
tlio award the financial circumstances,
character, nnd intellectual promise of
the candidates should be tuken into
consideration as well as their standing

Some of    the advantages    of the
scheme are as follows:
It gives to those interested in the
cause of University education an opportunity of helping it in a direct and
effective way. Scholarships established by the liberality of private individuals, and City nr County Councils
are common in Croat Britain and the
United States, lt is believed that
there are generous and public-spirited
citizens lu our Province who will welcome a method by which they can

Tailed lo rise nbove party and nurtl-
Banshtp ami to look beyond tlie confines oi' bis own province whose people he reared tu alienate. Never In
llie history of Canada, cither before or
since the days of Confederation, had
so glorious ami so vital an opportunity
lieen presented to any statesman to
show real leadership.
Sir Itobort Horden witli a safe work
lng majority behind him, both in tin
House or Commons and in tlie Senate,
hail nol only offered lhc olive brancll
lo Sir Wilfred but in tbe great cruise
of Empire, had proffered him a most
generous share in the Government of
tlie country. I'or it was recognized tliat
Sir Wilfred was tho real lender of
French Canada ami thai her people
would follow htm as tliey have for
Sir Wilfred did nol rise enunl lo the
occasion, He listened not to the advice of his patriotic Liberal followers
in Ontario and elsewhere, nor to ihe
voice of reason, nor to the inspiration
of patriotism. Rather he listened to
llie small voices of the iniall men of
Quebec, nnd listening, fell, ii was
betrayal of Canadian mil Imperial
triisl as abject as It is pitiful. Tlie

Sir Robert Borden's bill for selective
conscription is miiUiiig satisfactory
headway, gaining new adherents daily.
That It will speedily become law and
effective Is only lo be expected lis the
arguments supporting it arc preponderating and convincing wllllo Sir Wilfred Unricr and those of his followers who appear lo regard tlie safety
of the Empire ns subservient lo the
safety of their parly are basing their
opposition on unsound principals.

tlie present voluntary system in unfair

Selective conscription will settle that.
Many are sincerely rent by a conflict

the (llohe.
Ah. that's it. (iiily let Laurier gel
back to power and all will lie forgiven,
It is the cry of one blinded with par
li/.aiiship, No one but a blind partl-
znn would fail lo see thai in the present crisis the majority of the people
of Ontario and the West would endure
far worse government than we hnve
luul rather than entrust Sir Wilfred
Laurier with supreme authority i.t Ottawa. H is very doubtful if even a
majority of iim patriotic Liberals of
this province would care to sec the
Liberal leader at Ihe head of national
affairs at tliis time,
The question whicli is of greatest
national moment at present is Lie
question of conscription. It threntens
io divide the country on racial lines.
The populace of Quebec province is.
apparently, fanatically opposed to
compulsory military service in any
form, The Globe support:', conscription. "No true Liberal." it say-.
"weighing well the issues in this war,
can do other than give undovlating
support to any measure that will
strengthen lhe allied armies in brlng-
Ing to naught the toui conspiracy
which Prussian military nutocrncy has
hatched against the liberties or democratic peoples," Well. Sir Robert Borden hnji proposed cdniicrlptlon, and lis
government is committed to that policy. Sir Wilfred Laurier had lhe opportunity in support the Prime Minster's proposal, but he kept sflenl and
has maintained his silence. His Inti i
public utterance on the subject was
n condemnation of conacriptlon end a
declaration lhat it would never be
Introduced in Canada. The prevailing
sentiment in the province which is
Sir Wilfred Laurier's political stronghold is against conscription. The prevails sentinieui in Ontario and the
west is in favor of conscription. In
the absence of any evidence that the
Liberal leader bar, chane.eil his mind
and is ready to place himself in opposition to his supporters in Quebec, Is
it not rather odd for the Olobe to declare tliat "tiiere is no ore in Parliament who, in this Imperative task <>f
welding the country to-jo'licr, can take
the place of Sir Wilfred  Laurier'."'
No. the difficulties und dangers of
the political nituation at Ottawa nre
not to ne overcome by th'' madness of
partlzansblp as exemplified in tho proposal to replace Horden with Laurier
as the head of the (ioverilllieitl. Till

is claimed that professional speculators in future have a tendency to level
the market thai is to prevent these
violent fluctuations. When prevailing
prices seem too high they sell for future delivery; tlie -effect -of these
speculative trades Is felt In the wheat
market, uud prices steady, or drop.
When calculations prove the price too
low. they buy for future acceptance,
and the offect Is to raise quotations.
These trades work the market through
our old friends "Supply and demand:"
ipecitlativo buying adds to immeedlate
leuiand, speculative selling increases
potential supply. Bill as lhe real demand Cor wheat is hunger and the
real supply Is farm production, the
general   level   of   prices   depends   on
thoso two things, nml professional
speculators are but stock absorbers
helping to level tho bumps In price.
Of course when mistakes occur In the

This war is different from any of

"Britain  need only sell Cnnade.  to

and  also  the   war  indemnity  due  to

This astonishing suggestion was

"Send us more men." is the request
ol' Marshal Joffre, made to the people
of Canada, on behalf of Trance. "We

Can Canadians. In tlu* light of all our

causes of this wur. remain indifferent
to these requests? Can we see onr

"We will not have conscript ion," I
declared Sir Wilfred Uiurier in the

When Ihe Liberal leader gave such
assurance to a portion of the country
which had enlisted fewer men than
any other part of the British Kmpire. I
be issued a blank cheque to every
man who is willing to let other men

Hear Sir We beg to enclose herewith our official rocelpl for tlu* sum
of $25.00, being proceeds of collections
for Belgian Relief Fund, nmde by the
Cranbrook Herald. Phase convey to
the kind donors our best thanks for
this contribution.
Wo would like to mention tbat an
Impression seems to have been created
lo Hie effect tiiat onr Fund was no
longer accepfling moneys, This is
not correct. Tbe position is that we
have hitherto applied all our moneys
to helping tlw Commission for Relief
in Belgium, this being one of the many
relief works, and being the most important one. At present, in view of
tlie lack of shipping facilities, the
Commission cannot ship more food j
than that which is paid for by the
Belgian Government. Hence ii is
nnt necessary any longer for us to'
help this particular relief work. We
shall, however, be glad to receive further subscriptions which we will now
he able to apply to other relief works'
in Belgium, which are badly in need
of money.
Thanking you for your kind interest
In our Fund, ne remain. ,
