NUMBER 28
IL BE ERECTED
A citizens' meeting to consider the
erection or a suitable memorial to
keep nn in remembrance of the great
work anil the greater sacrifices thai
thin district hae made In tho proae-
cutlon of the great war which In now
ho happily concluded, and lite form
BUOh memorial will take, was held In
tho city hall on Monday evening. It
wuh called hy Mayor Cameron, who
presided at the mooting, There wiih
a good atteniliiiMi' and a. great deal
of InlereHt in Uio project wiih taken.
It Hoon It-centm. ainmr.-nt that thnro
wan great unanimity In regard tn the
advisability of doing something lo
porpetnnto the memory of the heroic
efforts of thia district and the great
sacrifices that were made by onr
soldiers on the bloody field**, of Europe. Thc deluge of blood had to
be poured forth and thin district wan
aa eager as any to add Us rich red
blood to the torrent. Many from this
district made the supreme sacrifice,
gave their luat drop of blood In tho
cause of righteousness and fair play,
that democracy should not perish
from thc earth, and that a new and
better era should be ushered In and
these sacrifices and the names of
those who made them should be cut
In tablets of Imperishable stone or
some other material that the generations to come might know of what
valorous stuff their forefathers were
mader"
T M. Roberts was appointed sce-
r-uary of the meeting.
The Mayor adopted a very good
plan on which to conduct the meeting
and ascertain the views of the representative citizens who were present.
He first outlined the purpose for
which the meeting was called, expressed his entire sympathy with the
project, eulogized the heroic men
who had made the supreme sacrifice,
lauded the patriotism ao wholeheartedly displayed by every organisation and then threw the meeting
open for discussion.
0. J. Spreull spoke at some length
in favor of tlie erection of some suitable memorial. The noble self-sacrificing work of our soldiers must
not be forgotten, the names of those
who gave their lives In the" great war
must be forever cherished and some
way must be'found to accomplish
that end. The perpetuation of their
memory should become an incentive
for the new generation to devote
themselves to something noble and
worthy of their best effort. A memorial that would, assist the young to
better carry out ttie Ideas for whicli
the Allies fought   shoutd be erected.
Lieut.-Col. Pollen suggested that a
hall might be erected. The probablll
ties are that un nnioury will be built
In Cranbrook before long and this
hall might become attached tn the armory. This would be a lasting appreciation of the men's great sacrifice.
Uev. It.W. Lee agreed wltti tlie sentiments expressed by lho previous
speakers. Thero was nothing that
we could do In Ihe way of repaying
the men for tiie sacrifices thoy tiad
made, out of a high sense of public
duty wc could do something to keep
In memory the fares of the men we
will never boo again. He had no suggestion to make as to tlie form tho
memorial should lake, but a committee might bi' formed to lake the
matter Into consideration.
N. A. Wkllluger expressed lite hope
that a memorial that would answer
some useful purimse would be decided upon. A small memorial hall that
might he used as a home for indigent soldiers or others in need of
help.
Chief AdaiM said that the Veterans at their meeting on Sunday inul
discussed tlie proponed memorial ami
were of the opinion thnt as the city
had several IoIh In a vacant block -
the old curling rink property and
surrounding lots and suggested thai
the whole flat might be turned into
a central park and a memorial erected thereon, the form to be decided on.
There was a large number of ladles
present and several of them expressed their views.
Mrs. Krlckson waa In favor of a
lake and park where the children
could play and enjoy themselves.
Mrs. Wilson was of the same opinion, A place for tho children to swim
in for the summer and to ska to on in
the winter. A park would be more
useful than a monument.
H. White said that a park with a
memorial hall appealed to him as a
very good Idea. A tablet on which

ot the fallen and keep them ever before ua. A good strong committee
should be formed, from which subcommittees could be appointed. Have
plans and costs submitted. We should
do something worthy of the great
work thoae men have done for us.
W. S. Santo suggested that the
memorial might take the form of a
substantial arch. The arch might
form the (gateway to a park. If the
arch were built of stone each stone
might have inscribed upon tt ■ever»l

CANADA'S   MTSRI 'ANTIl.i:   >I\I(IM.
By David Katsac.
The statesmen representing tlte
Allied peoples have concluded tlieir
work. Premier Borden and ministers of the Canadian cabinet, In common with the accredited delegates
from other nations, have pledged Canada to certain definite responsibilities, responsibilities earned, and in
keeping with the valor of Canadians
in Europe during all the dny-- of the
great war. Canada musi rise io her
obligations, Tho turmoil ihruuitfi
winch tiio people are passing cannot
alter or eliminate the facts of the i;ii-
uation The country is entering .•
r.oiious era. There musi be ■ If tne
Interest charges and principle ii.iy-
ments or the national debt arc to Up
met as they full due"—production and
trade In Canada such as our forefathers would have deemed Impossible
for Canada for yet another fifty years
The Dominion is but little more than
fifty years old, We have a dehi suit-
ante to a country twice the age 'if oil;'
own, und that would he a sizeable
load for a population twice ad Inrge
ae thut constituting the nation today.
The field, forest and mines of Can
ana must be made to give of their
natural wealth on a scale never before attained, farmers, lumbermen
and miners must be encouraged to
settle in tbe Dominion to enlarge the
home market. Manufacturers must
take courage,Vighl with lho same
dash and perseverance our lighting
men exhibited In France, lo invade
foreign markets on a competitive basis. Wc must produce and we musi
sell on a tremendous scale to carry
tho country thru the coming years.
There Is nothing impossible ahout
this. It can he done. Canada is iu u
splendid condition of strength us far
aa resources are concerned. With
the right kind of co-operation the
problem will be satisfactorily solved.
Few people, 1 think, realize the significance of tin* Canadian Government Merchant Marine iu connection
with these aspects of tbe country's
immediate future. Ttie country's venture as a state Into ttie carrying trade
by water ls a little different from the
expansion of the transport by rail.
However, the two servlcaa are complementary, and worked out wttb au
eye glued to the- best interests df the
people ul large, will undoubtedly
prove, together, in the development
of the country, a factor, tlie Importance of which enn scarcely he exaggerated. In tbe meanlfnic Canadian
workmen in shipyards, Halifax to
Victoria, are ffnding constant and lucrative employment on the construction of the 4ii vessels making up the
fleet, and tradesmen and manufacturers affected are being kept busy
over a trying period of readjustment
The ships of tbe Canadian Government Merchant Marine ure being
built In three types—one, two and
three deckers—and in seven sizes.
There are two vessels of USftl) tons
each; 4 of U400; 5 of 3750; 8 of 4300;
8 of 5100; Iti of 8100 and 2 of 10,500.
These are being built In Halifax,
New Glasgow, Levis, Throe Rivers,
Montreal, Kingston. Wetland. Col-
llngwood, Port Arthur, Prince Rupert, Vancouver and Victoria. The
cost of the ships has been calculated
to be more than 52 million .dollars.
Six vessels have already boon delivered, 30 more are scheduled for delivery during (he year, and those remaining are to be completed before
the close or 1020. The total deadweight tonnage Is about 2115,000 tons,
so tiiat tlie addition to Canada's statu! as a mercantile nation, will he
*  considerable.
Names for more than half of the
ships have already been received in
tho executive offices of the Canadian
National Railways, as tbe Canadian
Government Merchant Marine Is to
be supervised by tho management of
tho National road.
Tho profix "Canadian" stands he
fore the name of each ship and will
stamp the vessels as hailing from the
Dominion no mutter lu which of the
ports of thc world the carriers may
be In furthering the Interests of general Canadian trade.
That is the keynote of the plan for
the building by Canada of this considerable fleet—"tho best interest of
general Canadian trade." The loug-
establlshed profitable searotttes have
determined by privatoly owned lines.
There Is therefore not the incentive
for private lines, even where subsidised by different notions, to pioneer
Into new sea-ways and load for n distant port without the probability of
securing a return load. While, in
course of time, tlie trade would be
developed, no private ship owners
care to shou'der the financial burden
Involved In such development work-
So, If Canadian trade were to expand
If Canadian resources were to be mar
keted throughout thc world In Canadian bottom;: -a matter of vital Importance to all tho people of the nation—it became necessary thnt tbey
should have their own ships to complement those of other Canadian
Companies already in operation from
certain Canadian portn.   Coopurutlon
panslon was ttie root desire.
Mr it. li. Teakle, a Canadian, and
il man of wide experience In the
steamship business, bus been select
fil as manager of the fleet and hi*;
headquarters will be established at
Montreal, as that city Is the point
where lake and ocean traffic in Can
ada meet. Me is building up a stuff
quite competent to maintain the man
iming services and he will report dl
reel io the president's office of the
Canadian National Railways in Toronto.
Already the ships of Canada's mercantile marine have commenced their
work. A service has been established between Canada and various ports
n the Wesl Indies, mid there is now
i direct service between Canada and
Sinith America. Several vessels have
already loaded at Montreal and Hall-
tax carrying general merchandise to
ports in tlie West Indies, returning
with sugar from those of the Empire's domains in the tropics.
One of the largest vessels lias already established a direct service between Canada and the Argentine Republic. It was loaded In Canada with
general merchandise, Including ceml
cut. agricultural implements and
steel goods und cleared for Buenos
Ay res.
These cervices to upon up desirable trade routes for the benefit of
Canadian trade generally will surely
br! maintained as long as there is a
possibility or tonnage to all. But
probably the most significant services tho ships of Canada's own mercantile iijii'ltie will be performing
during the next few years, at any
rate, will he the carrying of foodstuffs to the United Kingdom aud
other countries in Europe, ln this
connection It may be said that full
cargoes have already been hooked for
Liverpool and the chances are that
these ships of the Canadian Government Merchant Marine, operating in
connection wtth the trains nt Canadian National Railways, shall prove
to he of mosl material assistance to
the producers alt over Canada. This
Is especially true of tiie grain growers 'in the western plains, in that
there is an abundance of cargo space
for the exporting of his products to
the countries which will be the biggest buyers during the next few
year*.
The venture of the Canadian people into lhe business of carriage by
water Is only in its infancy. The
present fleet should be the nucleus
of a larger fleet of state-owned vessels carrying Canadian goods from
every Canadian port to every point
readied by wuter*capable of purchasing Canadian products and furnishing to Canada in return those articles
and materials utilized by Canada la
the dally business and life of the people.
The Ensign of the Canadian Government Merchant Murine with the
Iteaver in the upper left hand corner
should soon he flying in almost ull
the great ports of the world. It Ib
certain thut the national view-point
will be considerably broadened thru
the now interest that will have to lie
displayed by the people as a whole
through their supervision over the
business of their carriers on all the
seven seas.

A. SAYS DRIVE OUT
TIIK AMKN BNE9CV
Vancouver. July 4.—Rousing prob
lems and thc question of the treat-
incut and disposition of the alien In
Canada were discussed ut the session
of tho tireut Wur Veterans' convention last night. In connection with
tbe former a resolution was presented recommending that the terms of
loaning under the soldiers- settlement act now applying to farms only,
should be extended to dwellers in
cities for the purpose of enabling
thorn to improve existing homes or
erecting new ones. The first clause
of the resolution requested tho fed-
era) government to abandon its present housing scheme ns "cumbersome,
unpractical  aud  undesirable.  "
Denunciation of the housing scheme
was voiced by Comrade Martinson,
mover or tlie resolution, who declared thnt in Winnipeg it had been
found as useless for housing the soldiers as the vacant lots around the
City, It had been passed from the
governments to the municipalities
who were practically unable to use
it because it Interfered witli their
borrowing powers. Comrade Irwin
of Edmonton declared that the
scheme had simply resolved itself
Into a game of "passing the buck,"
while Comrade Law of Winnipeg stated that men who had lived in dugouts at the front did not want to live
in dugouts here, which was about all
lhe scheme provided for. On motion
of Comrade Dace, tlie clause asking
for tho abandonment of the housing
scheme was struck out and the
clause asking that the terms of the
Boldlers1 settlement act he extended
to relumed men in cities, was Insort-
•>d lu its place.
Tho  alien  question   proved highly
contentious.      When   the   resolution

Ho estimated that there were in Can-

mandate to get the convention to
urge tiio Dominion government to
take some action ln the matter or
otherwise Ihey would do so themselves. Ue said this because he had
received n letter from Hon. Arthur
Melglion In which tiie minister said
he saw no reoKon for getting rid of
thc aliens.
A resolution that steps be taken to
prevent tho use of alien languages In
the schools, pulpits and press thru-

no steps .shall be taken by the government lo subsidize Immigration at

that In future more care should be
exercised over Immigrants coming.

aOVERKJnSNT RAILWAY!)
HAVE BIG DEFICIT!)
For some people to own railways
is an expensive luxury. The government railways of Canada will have a
deficit this yenr of about J30.000.000.
The cost to the people of Canada to
operate the state railroads before
they are able to turn a wheel In safety will bo about $80,000,000.
The following Is a commentary on
the government railway report submitted to parliament before It adjourned last week. It ts expected that
there will he a loss this year In connection Willi Ihe operation of the government railways of about $19,000,000
in addition to a loss on tlie Grand
Trunk Pacific, which the government
will hove to make good, of about $9,-
000.000 more.
Tho earnings of the Canadian Northern pnrt of tlie system were estimated to be $94,000,000 and working
expenses 1104,000,000, while the gross
revenue from tlie old government
railways, including the intercolonial,
was placed at $37,000,000 and the
working expenses $42,000,000.
T.here is not much hope that this
deficit wll! he reduced any, but rather increased, because, as the Minister of Hallways said, ln presenting
the figures there would be an increase on account of extras for labor.
In addition tn the deficit construction
will cost, it Is estimated, $11,000,000;
equipment and rolling stock, $20,000.
000;   betterments,  $21,000,000.
It is hud tn have a white elephant
like tiiat on our hands when so much
money Is required to maintain our
export trade with foreign countries.

An Indian near Creston was fined
$20 the other day for allowing his
scrub bull to run at large. Another
man at Wardner was fined $10 for
the ,same offence. While others are
allowed to go Scot free—without being Scotchmen either. We are informed that there are seven scrub
hulls running at large between Cranbrook and Rampart—enough to degenerate every herd of cattle In the
-ountry. lr is nearly time this district wns rid of all its scrub animals.
Why bring up a herd of cattle at a
loss? Why some of these scrub bulls
would not i \*on make good beef.

There Is a great rush frnm the
military hierarchy and nobility of
Germany to save the head of their
Kaiser. Hlndy says he did it. lloll-
weg says he ls responsible for the
war. Tho whole royal family are
willing to be executed if only the ex-
Kaiser will be allowed to go free. Thc
Crown PrlBco is the only craven one
in the bunch, he carries around a little pellet that will do for him what
the hangman's rope ought to do—but
he Is very careful not to use it until
tho senffold la huilt the rope adjusted and the feet of the high sheriff are
heard at Ms door. If they are all
guilty there are hangmen enough to
accommodate them all.

Reports from Southern Alberta say
that tlie weather continues to hold
out the same as It has nil summer so
far. It will show every Indication of
rain and nothing will come of It but
a little wind. Jthe grain on summer
fallow Is stilt holding out hut all
grains on fall and spring plowing are
about gone. Several farmers are going to turn their cattle and horses on
to certain crops that would not make
anything hy leaving it even if It did
rain. The farmers In lhe IMnehcr

Edmonton. July 4th—A survey of
crops on Juno 15th gave generally
favorable conditions for the stand of
crop throughout the province. This
was subject to such limiting factors as
cut-worms in rather wide distribution
over the province, but cnusing damage to the extent of 5 per cent of tbe
crop iu only a few localities, chiefly
In the southern part of the province,
and a more serious general limiting
factor represented In the preslstence
of drying-winds extending from tbe
boundary to Edmonton, but being
worse in the area swept by the strong
Chinook through Macleod and the
country north as far as High River
and south to the boundary. The effect of the rapidly drying winds was
neceibarlly much greater on land
other than summer fallow. Tame buy
had already shown backward to tlie
point of promising less than half a
crop.
Scarcity of Rain
Since the middle of the month the
change in conditions bus been unfavorable. Briefly stated, it mny bo
said thai crops in the north, which
means lhe Peace River country, have
been making good progress, due to a
good seeding, strong germination and
a sufficient supply of moisture since.
Crops in the centre of the province
corresponding wllh the Edmonton district have been holding out against
the limited rain supply, and while
the area is not facing any prospect of
failure or reduction to a seventy per
cent crop, the dry weather has been
sufficient to cut away a good deal of
leaf growth, checking the stooling
aud shortening the heads where the
grain is shooting out. The condition
of the crop may be said to be not quite
as good as it was two weeks ago, but
the unfavorable seasonal conditions
huve not got to the point of bringing
anything approaching disaster except
along the eastern side.
Early crops linve been shortened
and late sown crops are slow and
uneven in coming up, but there Is no
condition of exhaustion of moisture.
The tame bay crop has not gained any
ln the pnst two' weeks, rather the reverse.
In southern Alberta, that is, south
of Red Deer, tho unfavorable seasonal
conditions have had a more serious
effect. This does not apply to the
Red Deer country Itself or to the
country south through to Innisfail,
Olds, Bowden and Dldsbury to any
market extent. Though the scarcity
of rain has been felt to be the chief
limiting factor against a good normal
crop even here. The effect of the
drought as it nppears from north of
Carsiairs ia the south of the province has been sufficient to burn the
crop in patches. Some of It Is already red and dry on the knolls and
cannot very well come back even
wiih the assistance of copious rains.
It may be said that from north of
Carstafrs to tbe International boundary, and extending practically from
Pincber Creek ;o tlie Saskatchewan
Hue the injury is rather marked every
place, and hi some localities has
gone to the point of causing failure.
<. P. K. Main Line
There are good stands of grain a-
long the main line of the C.P.R. a-
round Calgary, Gleichen, Cluny, Bas-
sano and other points. The crop has
been put fn ln good time. The land
has been in good condition. There
is a good stand of grain at Gleichen
and at most points east to within
thirty or forty miles of Medicine Hat.
At nearly all of these points the crops
how red patches, but the main line
of tho C.P.R. has the best of the crop
resources of the south country this
year in tho district below CarBtalrs.
There Is some good crop running
011th of Calgary, but the effects of
drought appear rather quickly. From
High River to Macleod there is
progressive shortening of the crop by
droiiRht. The same is true of the Ald-
ersyde branch, though there are exceptions on carefully summer-fallow-
d fields.
Crows Nest Section
The most unfavorable condition in
Ihe province at present rolntes to the
land tributary to the CrowB Nest
Railway, and extends all tbe way
from PIncher Creek to Medicine Hat.
Bincher Creek has usually been a
heavy bay country, but both hay and
grain are short tills year. Conditions
at Mailend are quite poor, There
hus been steady blowing which has
carried destruction by winds through
the Nnbleford and Monarch districts.
Cards ton, Magrath, Raymond and
Stirling are pretty dry. There was
smile hope of good crops east of
Leihbridge, between Barnwell and
Burdett, but Ihis a rear Is now suffering also. Medicine Hat, .which a
month ago hud the best prospect? It
has bad for some yenrs. has suffered
* m intense beat and the absence
01 rain. In some cases where good
farming tins been carried ou there Is
still some moisture in the soli. The
effect of Ihe heat and wind has Induced transpiration from the plants
more rapid than can bo met by tho
moisture iu the soil, and tne crops
in some eases are as dry as tinder.
There will bo some crop In Medicine
Hal district, but thc total resultB will
not be good. The Irrigated lands of
Iho Letbbridge district have tbe best
lookfng alfalfa thnt they have had for
years. Some or the first cutting will
reiieh over two tons per acre. Tho
drought Is giving a decided Impulse
to the irrigation enterprises that have
boen already talked of.
No Reserve Moisture ln Spring
The overall outlook of the crop
situation of the province gives promise of good crops In the Peace River district'; fair crops in centralAl-
berla, with light crops in southern
Alberta from medium to almost total
failure. There will not be 25 per
cent of the laud seeded to grain n-
long the Crows Nest Railway cut
for grain this season. This appears
to be a rather sharp change from the
conditions reported only two weeks
ago. The appearance of failure comes
from the combination, of extremely
hot dry weather and a condition of
the absence of sufficient reserve of
moisture in the soil. Tho farmers of
the south country were handicapped
from the heglnulug of tlie season by
tlie shortness of moisture last year.
While this survey represents tho condition of the crops al Ihe present time
some allowance may he made for the
tenacity and recuperative power of
dry laud crops. Under copious rains
there might he rather heller results
than present appearance would lead
one lo expect.
Feed
The condition of tlie tame bay crop
has already been referred to. The
central and northern parts of the
province will probably not have as
large a surplus of native hay from
open areas as last year, and more par
tlcularly central Alberta. This Is of
importance in relation to the needs
of the south. Already tlie stockmen
are feeling a good deal of enxlety
with regard to winter feed, and a
good many have come north, as they
did last year, looking for hay supplies. The department of agriculture
likewise has a number of men from
the staff cruising the hay resources,
particularly north of Edmonton, and
information will be available shortly
to inquirers. The province wilt not be
able to take care of Its live stock Interests any better than it was last
year, and perhaps not quite so well.
There will be a greater tendency to
reduco stock than there wa^ last
year, and there may be a considerable
lowering of prices. The supply of
grazing at the present moment Is not
good for either sheep or cattle, and
there Is great anxiety among the live
stock men. It is too early, however,
to speak positively about feed resources. There may be considerable rough
growth on the land that has heen
sown to crop, just as there was last
year, and stockmen would be wise
to hold off from turning stock on
these lands hastily. There Is likewise some chance that native hay
lands may yield a good deal of winter feed also. The haying season is
much longer than the season for grain
harvesting, and a good supply of rain
might develop both native hay and
feed from the grain fields In the
south as well as good fall grazing.
Some of the live stock Is rather thin,
but It will be all right If there Is any
reviving of pastures from now on.

THE MARKETING OP FOULTBV
PRODUCTS
Marketing! has much to do with the
success or failure ot any poultry plant
No matter how successfully the plant
may be run, if the marketing end of
the business Is not properly looked
after the whole enterprise will sooner
or later end in failure.
Every producer should get the best
price possible for his products, and to
do this lt Is necessary to pay particular attention to their quality, and
the season at which the products are
sold.
EGGS. Eggs should be gathered
regularly and often. AU small and
dirty eggs should be retained for
home use or sold separate from the
rest.
Thc eggs should ho neatly packed-
If for private trade, they ari mad-,
m.ru nt'"active If put Into neat cur-
ton.-..
The tooiisr the eggs are in
funds of the (1 nsunier the greater the
Hatisfaciiuu ;i ul consequent'* the bet
tor the price received.
The pullets should Im early mi that
production uil", bo heavy. If at any
time during the season the "ggs become so plentiful as to cause a- gl-it
lu the market, forcing down the price
to tne cost -a production, it .■» iPei
advisable to use a igood preservative
and put away the surplus for uie period of scarcity which Invariabi • fol
lows.
TABLE POULTRY —Immediately
following Ihe "spring lay" the flock
should be gone <y.er and all useless
cock birds and those hens that show
they Intend to rest for the summer,
should be put Into crates and fed heav
liy for a week or ten days and then
sent to market either live or dressed
according to market requirements.
Tills culling should not all be done at
one time but gradually a« occasion requires, but it should be the aim to get
the culling over with as far as possible before the time for marketing
broilers, as the prices for fowl always
drop after that.
BROILERS—It will pay to market
many of the early cockerels as broilers depending on those later hatched
for roasters as the season advances.
All cockerels of the light weight varieties should be marketed as broilers
When they are eight to ten weeks' old
either crate or pen feed them for a
week or two so as to finish well he-
fore marketing.
ROASTERS—In the general purpose breeds such as Plymouth Rocks
and Wyandottes, the main crop of
cockerels should be held as roasters.
These should be crate fed for from
ten days to two weeks or even four
weeks, according to requirements.
The most economical gains are made
tbe first ten days or two weeks but to
get thc best finish it will require three
or even four weeks In the crates.
Aim to produce tbe highest quality
product; to market It in the best condition; to ask and to receive tbe highest market price.
Write the Poultry Division, Experimental Farm, Ottawa, for circular on
tbo Preservation of Eggs and Bulletin on the marketing of Poultry Products.
WAR VKTKRANS BONUS
RESOLUTION PASSES
Vancouver, July 2.—Never was the
solidarity, tlie co-operation and the
comradeship of returned men, and
especially In the G. W. V. A., better
exemplified than it was today at the
Dominion Convention when the famous Calgary resolution regarding the
proposed $2,000 cash bonus came op
for discussion. After two sessions
and a six-hour debate a compromise
resolution was endorsed which, amid
scettes of tremendous enthusiasm,
was carried with but two dissenting
voices.
The compromise resolution read as
follows;
"Resolved that we urge upou the
government or Canada the necessity
of an immediate adoption of a system
of bonus payments as tbe most satisfactory and effective means of re
establishing the soldiers.
''Further resolved, that after careful thought and full consideration we
are of the opinion that the granting
or such a bonus upon on equitable
basis, be limited only by the country's
ability (0 pay, so us to enable the be
neflclary to become efficiently re-en
tablfshed with security and happiness. The classification of beneficiaries, tho method of distribution and
administration to be agreed and decided upon by a Joint parliamentary
and G. W. V. A. commission.
"It was further decided thai this
bonus should be In addition tn all
gratuity or pension rrom disability
resulting from sorvlce, and that In
the case of members of tho expeditionary forces whose death occurred
either while In the service or after
discharge therefrom such bonus shall
be paid their dependents.
"AU of the benefits contained In
this resolution shall apply to those
resident In Canada prior to August 4,
1914, wlio served in the Imperial
rorces and who are now or may be at
nny future date domiciled in Canada."

Saving for CHUensWp
Everybody knows what spending
for goodfellowship means. We have
done a lot of It. It used to be easier
before the war and when the bars
were open. We learned to give for
true fellowship durlngthe war. Some
have given money freely. Some time,
some sympathy, the women—Ood
bless them—gave socks till their fingers were sore. Some have given
sons. Some have given fathers, brothers. Some gave limbs, others gave
health, some gave lives—all for a
great Ideal— the Ideal of citizenship
of the highest kind. It was easy to
give. It was easy to spend. Now we
are asked to save ror citizenship We
i.avi been forced by the war tt save.
In a country which had never had a
bond flotation exceeding $5,000,000
we bad five loans In three years
with subscriptions from ninety-seven

a billion four hundred millions during the war. While we saved this or
loaned it to the nation It means a big
Interest charge to meet, and lt makes
financing all the more difficult. The
thrift campaign is to continue the
good work. To give us all a slake In
