ILO ILO ITEMS.
Change of program every day.
Tonight's program at the Ilo
Ilo Theatre will include a Rex
drama, a Nestor comedy, with
Eddie Lyons, and a Lamaell comedy, besides the usual two reels
of the "PegO' The Ring', serial.
This story is nearing the end, tonight's being the 10th., episode,
there being fifteen in all. To accommodate the paynight crowd
the lirst show will commence at
G.30. Come early and get first
choice of seats.
Mutual Masterpieces have the
support Of all particular film audiences owing to the fact that
their plots, photography and
players are particular and chosen
to please the public. Prove this
by seeing the ones show n here
every Monday and Friday..
• The second episode of the
"Strange .Case of Mary Page"
to be shown on Tuesday promises
to excel the flrst in interest, as
the details of Mary's strange life
begi.i to appeal'. Mary Page is
charged with the murder of Dave
Pollock. Langden loves Mary
and is the attorney in the trial.
Langdon brings witnesses to tell
thrilling incidents of Mary's early
life. The serial is in fifteen episodes and the names of Edna
Mayo and Henry Wall hal area
guarantee of the best to be had
in the dramatic line. See tho
next episode and you will not
miss the following ones. Tuesday night only.
A particularly good thingin the
film line which is booked at the
'Ilo Ilo Theatre for either Wed-
i esday or Friday of the coming
week,-is a production of the American Film Company, "The Gir
from His Town" with Margarita
Fischer in stellar role. This is a
four-act drama of the stage and
one that has made a great hit
with all audiences. Miss Fischer,
has been a great favorite in films
for the past few years. Previous
to that time she was for some
years with the Pollard Opera
Compeny, and was well known
on the Pacific coast in such popular plays as "The Belle of New
York" and other Pollard sue
cesses. When the "Girl From
His Town" was recently shown
in Vancouver it drew crowded
houses for a week, as evidence
of her popularity there. The
story, itself is an exceptionally
good one and should not be missed, lt can be shown here one
day only, the exact date to be
announced later.
Some of the most hair-breadth
escapes imaginable are shown in
"The Girl and the Game," a series of railroad stories which have
made Helen Holmes famous. The
series will start shortly at the
Ilo Ilo.

NEW SCHEME
FOR RECRUITING
Ottawa, Aug. 16.—A species
of registration is outlined in the
government's new system of recruiting for which an oi der-in-
eouncil was passed today. Briefly
the new scheme contemplates
the appointment of directors of
recruiting, who will have supervision of enlistments in the various military districts, one director to be appointed for each district. These directors shall be
empowered to make a canvas of
tl eir districts with a view to distinguishing between the various
classes. Those whose services
are refused in the essential industries of the country shall have
their names tabulated, while
those who are physically unfit
shall be provided with badges or
buttons, thus by inference all
(slackers) shall be   designated.
Regulations governing badges
are somewhat extensive. Badges
in such form as the Governor in
Council may recommend shall be
issued to the following classes!
(a) Men honorably discharged from expeditionary forces.
(b) Men who have offered
themselves for active service in
the present war and have been
rejected.
(c) Men who desire or who
have offered to enlist and who
have been refused on the ground
that their services are of more
value to the state in the employment in which they are engaged
than if they should enlist in active service.

" Daniel in the Lion's Den."
The Commision appointed by
the Provincial Government to in-
vestfgate claims for damages a-
rising from the strike disorders
of 1913 and 1914 opened its sess-'
ion in Nanaimo yesterday under
the chairmanship of His Honor
Mr. Justice Gregory, with Mr. H.
Langley as secretary.
Claims totaling in the vicinity
of $70,000 have already been filed
with the commision and all
claims have not yet been submitted.
After reading the Mandate
from the government appointing
hittr as Commisioner His Lordship stated that he had received
letters through the mail which he
had not read and which he did
not propose to read as he wished
to keep an open mind on the
question during the progress of
sittings. Any person desiring to
bring their claims before the Commision, His Lordship stated,
could do so by communicating
with Secretary Langley or Mr.
Herchemer, council representing
the Provincial Government.
Mr. Herchemer stated that a
number of claims for damages
had been received from Ladysmith, South Wellington and Extension, and in order that as
little inconvenience as possible
might be occasioned to employers
of labor by the calling away from
their work of a large number of
men who would be required to
hgive exidence in support of these
claims, he suggested that special
sessions of the Commision should
be held at these centres later on.
Since there were somewhere in
neighborhood of two hundred
claims to be heard in Nanaimo,
he thought it would be some time
before the Commission would be
ready to sit elsewhere, and he
suggested theiefore that His
Lordship should set a" date for
sittings at the other places named.
FRVATTS MURDER
MUST BE AVENGED
London, Aug. 16.—Replying to
a question in the House of Commons today, Premier Asquith
said the government was determined that "this country will nol
tolerate a resumption of diplomatic relations with Germany
after the war until reparation is
made for the murder of Captain
Fryatt."
"Some ofourallies," continued
the premier, "have suffered by
brutalities even more gross. We
are in consultation with them as
to what conditions should be expected in the terms of peace to
secure reparation that will satisfy justice."
A member asked if the government was "prepared to make a
statement that Emperor William
is wanted for wilful murder in
this case."
No answer was made to tips.

i
The coke produced in Western
Canada is made almost entirely
in beehive ovens. The volatile
combustible contents are consumed and all of the valuable
constituents of the coal except
fixed carbon, which remains as
coke, are wasted. These wasted
constituents consists of gas, tar
and ammonia. In by-product
ovens the tar, ammonia and all
of the gas, except that used for
heating the ovens, are recovered.
In the carbonization of coal by
the two different classes of
ovens mentioned, high temperatures are used. Low temperature carbonization is still only in
the early stages of its technical
development, but, helped by the
war demands, for high yields of
light oils, it is now being energetically pushed forward in Great
Britain and has an assured future as an adjunct of the older
systems of high temperature carbonization, especially in view of
the growing demand for light oil
as motor fuel.
Coal gas residuals form the bases of many industries. Owing
to the great development of byproduct coke ovens and gas plants
in Germany and the application
of modern chemistry to (he util-
izationof their by-products, these
industries have been controlled
largely by thai country, In the
readjustment of industrial and
trade conditions after the war, it
is desirable that as many of these
industries as possible be established in Canada and in other
parts of the British Empire.
There are two large by-product coke ovens in Canada which
produce 67 per cent of our coke
output. These plants are situated at Sault Ste Marie, Ont., and
at Sydney, N. s>. Since the outbreak of war, the latter plant has
been installing a benzol recovery
plant. While large quantities of
tar are recovered from local gas
plants, no industries have been
established for the refining, separation and use of the products
obtainable from it.
Not only is the saving of the
by-products from the coking or
carbonization of coal a measure
of conservation, but the sale of
these residuals reduces the cost
of production in a degree corresponding to the efficiency of the
recovery methods adopted and
the market value of the products,

Onc by one the Camping parties have been "folding their
tents" and returning to homes
and business cares, this week.
While the weather this summer
has not been as ideal for camping, in this section, at least, as
usual, still many families have
benefitted by a few weeks of
outdoor life spent along the
beaches, and are returning re-
freshed and ready for work.
Cumberland is particularly fortunate in the matter of beautiful
camping spots, numerous good
bathing beaches being in easy
walking distance, and even connected liy train service, both
on salt water and on Comox lake,
where tliere is splendid boating
antl fishing as well. Schoolchildren, especially, who are privi-
liged to spend their summer holidays in this manner should ap-
i preciate the fact, as there are
I so many in cities who are not so
fortunate.

ACCIDENTS IN ONTARIO
The lirst annual report of the
Ontario Workmens' Compensation Board contains interesting
data concerning the cost of accidents in that province. Under
the Act governing the Board's
operations it is compulsory for
emplojers to report all accidents
by which employees are prevented from earning full wages. This
has had the effect of securing
very full reports.
For the year 1915, 17,088 notices of accident were received
by the Board. Of these, 9,829
came under the Board's jurisdiction, and 7,(1011 were finally disposed of. The time lost due to
these 7,600 accidents amounted
to 170,711 days, or equal ti the
combined labour of a stall' of
569 men for a yea'.
Only temporary disability resulted from 0,544 accidents, but
in 1,033 cases permanent disability followed, and 251 of the ac
cidents resulted fatally.
The value of safety appliances
is very strongly emphasized by
comparisons betweeen the cost
of necessary safeguards and the
monetary eostof accidents resulting from their absence. For instance, automatic locks on two
elevators, at a cost of $3.50,
would have saved-two lives and
•S"G, 179 compensation, The removal of protruding nails, pieces
of broken glass and metals, would
have saved 120 injuries, while
the wearing of goggles, costing
*150, might have saved 38 work
men from permanent injuries to
to the eyes and $42,846 in compensation.
The foregoing presents in a
striking manner the need of care
to prevent accidents. Many of
our larger industries are organizing safety associations to further
impress upon the employers and
workmen the advantage of safety
appliances and the use of every
precaution in their work; much
good has already resulted.
Such a record of accidents,
causing a constant and ceaseless
drain upon the productive resources of Canada, is unnecessary. Enlistment is making
heavy demands upon the labour
of i lanada, and there is already
a severe shortage in some branches of industry. Yet, in one province alone, in 1005, accidents
injured 17,033, permanently disabled 1,033, aud killed 251 of our
producers.

GAME A   NATIONAL  ASSET
Judging from the rate at which
the wild creatures of North Am
erica are now being destroyed
fifty years hence there will be no
large game left in the United
States nor in Canada, outside of
rigidly protected game preserves.
It is therefore the duty of every
good citizen to promote the protection of forests and wild life
and the creation of game preserves, while a supply of wild
game remains. Every man who
finds pleasure in hunting or fishing should be willing to spend
both time and money in active
work for the protection of forests, fish and game.
In the settled and civilized regions of North America, there is
no real necessity for the consumption of wild game as human food; nor is there any good
excuse for the sale of game for
food purposes. The operations
of market hunters should be prohibited everywhere, under severe
penalties.
The highest purpose which the
killing of wild game and game
fishes can hereafter be made to
serve, is in furnishing objects to
overworked men for tramping
and camping trips in the wilds,
and the value of wild game as
human food should no longer be
regarded as an important factor
in its pursuit. -Code of Ethics,
Michigan Wild Life League.
Scoutmasters in Canada and
elsewhere will be glad to hear of
the continued progress of the
Scoutmasters' training corps among the first Royal Naval Brigade interned in Holland. Thot
the work there is being done on
a sound footing is realized when
one sees the program of Scout
practises laid down for the fol
lowing month in June number of
the Cronigen Scouts Gazette.
