A  hundred  and   fifty  invited
guests were present from Cum-
and asked thc guests to rise to
the toast of "The King," when
"God Save the King" was sung
by those present. Next was a
toast to the "Allies."
Thomas Taylor of Victoria,
Minister of Public Works:
Friends and Gentlemen: Our
chairman has requested me to
answer to the Toast of the Allies
The toast is one that would take
much more time than v e have at
our disposal this evening; I think
that everyone feels that the
Allies are doing their utmost
and are working for the benefit
of the whole world. If it were
not for the Allies what would be
the color of the map to-day. The
Germans have for a number of
years been building up a vast
war. machine and segregating
large armies of trained men;
which vast machine and armies
they intended to let loose on the
world, and in 1914 were turned
loose marching on through Belgium and over to tho Marne. Tte

and (lags of the Allied Nations,
The tables were laden wilh tlie

o'clock the appointed time for

chairman for the evening, took
hi:* seat at tlie centre of the table
at the head of the dining room
with the Honorable W. J. Bowser at his right and Mr. M. Man-
son, M. P. P. for Comox district
at his left. First and second sittings all enjoyed the sumptous
repast prepared by Mr. and Mrs.
Wm. Jones, of the Union Hotel.
Dinner over at half past seven j
Mr. Bate, in his opening remarks
paid a tribute to the Premier and
his party, pointing out that it
was reported that all speakers
should be brief owing to another
meeting being held at Courtenay,,
thousands of our Allies have been
slain in this great battle. The
freedom of the World will be
gained through the victory when
the Allies win this greatest war
in history.
Wc now grieve the loss of that
great and noble man Lord Kitchener who was a great and able
si.ldier and feel that in his loss
we bave lost a great and mighty
man and regret that he could not
see the victory of the war.
Kx-Mayor A. E. Planta of Nanaimo replied.
Lome Campbell, Minister of
Mines said in proposing the toast
to "British Columbia:"
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen:
In proposing this toast it would
be weil to listen to the leader of
the Opposition, (laughter) and
dwelt extensively upon the resources of the Province.
Mk. M. Manson, in replying
for tho District to the toast
"Guests of the Evening," said:
"We have never had the pleasure of such a representative gathering of prominent men in the
District on any occasion before.
We are not going to talk much

acquainted meeting. From the
way the Liberal party have talked
of those men you would think they

were something terrible. Here
they are, vou can see for yourselves that they are not such bad
fellows after all. Before the session you were led to believe that
theso fellows had got away with
almost everything in sight and
if they would get into Victoria
thoy would lift the lid off, and
if you have read the papers yon
will know what has been saiu
during the last month. Instead
of the Government being up
against it the Liberal party has
been up against it. You will see
when the Government reports
ara gone into that during the
ast seven years not a single dollar has been misappropriated.
We have here Mr. Taylor, Minister of Public Works, who is in the
spending department. $350,000
has been spent on the roads, etc.
during his term of office, and
not one dollar misappropriated.
If the Liberals cannot be trusted with a little by-election, would
you like to trust them with the
affairs of British Columbia? Some
future day before election I will
take time to tell you of the good
legislation which has been gone
into.
Hon. W, J. Bowser, Premier of
British Columbia: "Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, I am
pleased with the enthusiastic way
we have been received here this
evening. I wish to thank Mr.
Manson for the good way in
which he has carried on this programme. He has a great failing
or I might say faculty of bringing us to the Comox District to
see the great timber. All along
the lino we were told of the wonders we should see i'urther on.
I have betn several times in
Cumberland but not as often as
I would like to. I promised my
friends that I would try to get
through the whole province and
give the people a chance to size
me up, and I invite criticisms.
We are going to try to give you
as far as we can a good
clean government. This trip is
in no sense of the word a political
one. It is to get acquainted with
the people and find out their
needs."
It was his desire to get out
among thepeople and ascertain
their requirements and criticism
and touched on the reconstruction
of the Cabinet to a very limited
extent. The Premier did not give
apolitical address, it was an after
dinner speech only, and received
rounds of applause upon rising
and taking his seat.
Marsh Gordon proposed a toast
to the Conservative party and
H. B. Thompson replied.
Mr. P. J. Dalby moved a vote
of thanks to the Premier and his
party which was given with three
rousing cheers and 'n* tiger that
could be heard several blocks
away. Premier Bowser appreciated the kindness shown towards him and Ms party.
The party left at nine o'clock
to attend the Courtenay Conservative smoker.

3,176.
But it is apparent from thc
statements of the British admiralty has been concealing the loss
of certain large ships and a submarine. British officers have
stated that the German battle-
cruiser Lutzow, the complement
of which was about 1,100; the
German battlecruiser Hinden-
burg, the complement of which
must have been about 1,100 were
sunk. Adding these numbers
and 30 for the crew of a submarine, to the total complements of
the ships admitted by the Germans as sunk, the total is 6,506.
The German unofficial estimate
is 6,800, but the total of the ships
admitted by Berlin to have been
sunk is only 3,176, and the difference is more than equal to the
total of the complements of three
battle-cruisers. There is confirmation in this of the statements
made by tho British that the British fleet sank three of the German battlecruisers,
If one allows a margin of 400
German sailors rescued after
their ships had gone down and
not included in the unofficial estimate as killed, wounded or missing, the total German casualties

London, June 7. —A dispatch
received here from Copenhagen
says that not a single private
message has been received there
from Germany concerning the
naval battle.
The newspaper correspondents
in Germany, the dispatch says,
evidently are not allowed to deal
with Ihe subject, for only German admiralty announcements
and two Wolff messages, containing nothing new, were n -
ceived thero yesterday.
The above confirms the statements made hy the British Ibid

of Jutland. Undoubtedly there

Under Geii. Sir William Robertson's firm guidance the work
of war goes on as before.
Lord Milnor is suggested in
some circles as the new war secretary, but if a civilian be chosen
it more probably will he Mr.
Lloyd George. The most likely
choice is a soldier like Gen. Sir
William Robertson or Field Marshal French.
The suggestion that the cruiser Hampshire was torpedoed leads
the Daily Mail to lead a new crusade for the placing behind barbed wire of the 10,000 or 15,000
unintcrned German subjects, even though they have been naturalized.
Earl Kitchener recently said to
a friend; "One more yoar and
it will be over." Also, "If only
our people would stick together,
if we would fight only Germans
and not ono another, we would
soon win through."
London, June 7 The passing
of Field Marshall Earl Kitchener
resembles the passing of a great
king. All controversy and criticism are dead and every section
of the naton joins in a common
tribute to tbe man whose like we
shall never see again.
London was stupefied yesterday and affected as 1 have never
seen it affected before by an/
piece of news. D.iy laborers,
shop girls, statesmen, generals,
people of every class, spoke and
acted as though robbed of their
nearest kin.
The loss of Kitchener will be
felt mainly on the political, international and diplomatic sides
of the war. The actual direction
of ill" fighting army recently has
been controlled by Gen. Sir Wm.
Robertson.

WHEAT AND THE WAI!.
One of the most comprehensive
articles in the Agricultural War
Rook of 1916 deals with the subject of ''Wheat and the Wa."
It is written by Mr. T. K. Doher-
ty. L. L. B., commissioner of the
International Agricultural Institute. The author traces the
course of events, as regards the
wheat market, in the momentous
years of 1913, 1914 and 1915, the
first named sharing with the last
two years some of their importance, although preceding the
war, by reason of the decline of
prices from those of 1912. In
1914-15 prices of wheat per bushel jumped from $1.05 to $1.01.
In tbis connection Mr. Doherty
asks readers to examine a table
giving quotations of prices since
the year 1800. In 1812 the figures reached their zenith, Britain
having wars with France and the
United States on her hands.
Wheat was then -?3.86 a bushel,
or more that three times the
standing of today. During the
first quarter of the nineteenth
century the lowest price was
$1.37 This was in 1822. In the
second quarter, the lowest figure
was reached in 1835, when wheat
stood at $1.35. In the third quarter prices ranged from $1.17 in
1851 to $2.27 in 1855, fluctuating
after that from $1.22 in 1804 to
$1.95 in 1867 and down to $1.37
in 1875. In 1877 the price was
$1.75. In 1878 the quotation was
$1.40. A period of steadiness
followed until 1883, when there
was a drop to $1.25. The decline
continued, the even dollar being
reached in the following year.
Then, for the first time in the
period covered in the table, below that figure was reached, 94c.
being the quotation. The lowest
point, namely 68c, was touched
in 1894. Fourteen years elapsed
before a dollar was again exceeded. In 1909 the highest quotation stood at $1.13. Mr. "Doherty
briefly outlines the cause for
these fluctuations, and proceeds
to deal with tbe situation arising
from the supply and demand in
the last three years, lie also
deals wilh the output of other
crops during these years, referring In the Inst known authorities ii! support nf his details and
d iducliollS, lie gees largely into the requirements ami productions of the world in wheat, giving tables showing lhe yield in
32 countries of wheat and 22 of
oats. In his conclusion he also
suggests that every aspect of the
wheat situation appears to indicate the improbability of a return
to the large average prices of
1910-11-12, and that following the
declaration of peace there will be
a greatly increased demand. His
final words are "Economic interests unite, therefore, with patriotic duty in stimulating the agriculturists of Canada to extiaor-
dinary productive efforts during
the forthcoming season." As an
appendix a description is given
of marketing conditions in Australia. The article deserves and
should attract wide attention.

My Friend,  have you heard of
the town of Yawn,
On the Banks of the River Slow,
Where Blooms the Wait-awhile
flower fair,
Where   the    Sometime-or-other
scents the air,
And the soft Go-easys grow?
It lies in  the Valley of Wha<'s-
the-use,
In the Province of Let-'er- slide;
That tired feeling is native there
It's the home of the  listless I-
don't care,
i Where the Put-it-ofTs abide.
j The Put-it-ofEs smile when asked
to work.
And say they will doit to-morrow
And so they delay, from day unto day,
Till death cycles up and   takes
them away,
■ And there families starve, beg
or borrow.

Dasher: "Why. of course 1 would.
How absurd!"
Travers: "Then bring the scene a

exception—that I had a good hat.
Would you still do the Bquare thing?"
Dasher: "Why, certainly!    What - "

Not Satan's Idea
A certain little girl was discovered
by her mother engaged in a spirited
encounter with a small friend, who had
got considerably    worsted In the
gagement.
"Don't you know, dear," said tlie
mother, "that it is very wicked to he-
have so? It was Satan that put it
into your head to pull  Elsie's hair."
"Well, perhaps it was," the child
admitted, "but kicking her shins wns
entirely my own idea."

"Now, who cun toll me how to make

"I can, teacher.    Starve him!"
Nature's   Fault
Flannlgan was 111. The machinery
of his body that up to now, had run

Flannigau's wife was deeply troubled. And no wonder, for her spouse's
temper was not. Improved by the state
of his health.
"It's the doctor you ought to ha
seeln'!" said she.
"Doctor, Is It?" said Flannlgan, lu
contempt. "Is It yourself, Mary, that£
tellln' your man to go to one of thim
murderin' chaps to he eut about and
all?"
Bul the pains got worse, and at
last, though reluctantly, Flannlngan
rang  the doctor's  hell   one  morning.
"Put your tonguevout, please," ru-
guested the medico.
Flannlgan poked out the tip of his
tongue,
"Put it right out, if you dr n't mind!"
"How cau I pm it right out, doc or,
