County Court Judge, presiding.
Mayor Hickey as the Military
Representative was present.
Andrew Aitken, of Bevan, was
granted exemption while employed in the local mines.
Joseph Balagno, of Cumber
land, was granted exemption

who appealed from the decision
of the local Tribunal withdrew
his appeal, and at the request of
* the Military representative it

CROWDS AT THE STATION GREET PTE. A.
PEACOCK ON HIS RETORN FROM FRONT
TANKS" CAN 1)0.
The citizens, teachers and pupils of the Cumberland Public
School met at the Wellington
Colliery Railway station Thursday
afternoon, to await the arrival
of the passenger train that had
made connections with the Victoria passenger train at Royston
in'erchange of tracks, to welcome
home Pte. Abraham Peacock who
was due to arrive from the firing
line at the front. The school
children and their teachers
marched from the public school
in a body each carrying a Union
Jack or a Canadian Ensign. No.
2 as usual steamed in on time and
upon being brought to a standstill there was a large crowd
waiting for the appearance of
3Wlm» (Etttum attft Patriot!
Pte. Peacock to tender the best
Cumberland could give, and that
was a heaity welcome home.
Thomas E. Bate, Mayor of the
City of Cumberland for the year
1917, was present on the platform and w hen Pte. Peacock
appeared read an address of welcome printed on satin. The address read as follows:
FOR NOBLY have you earned this title, in that when the Empire's hour of peril
came, you responded to the call of duty and have given of your best in repelling your
Country's enemies.
PTE. ABRAHAM PEACOCK, Cumberland is proud of you; proud of your association with a gallant corps—the 54th Battalion; proud of your cheerful response to the call
of duty; proud of your gallant conduct in the face of the enemy; proud of the blood you
have shed in fighting your Country's foes, and proud of the honourable scars you carry;
and we feel it is a great honour to be permitted to welcome home one who has so valiantly-
upheld those principles for which the whole of the British Empire, and her gallant Allies,
are now contending.
While we deplore the nature of your wounds and your incapacity for further active
service, we trust that you may still be spared many years of health, strength and usefulness. In a relentless struggle such as is now raging in Europe, "The Last Post" has
sounded for many thousands of gallant men, and you will no doubt render sincere thanks
to the Almighty Father for your wonderful preservation, and the joy of once again being
reunited with your family. Your recollections of the enthusiastic loyalty of Canada, the
throbbing patriotism of the British Isles, the stirring scenes of France, the Battle of the
Somme, the screech of shells, the shock of arms and the smoke and din of battle at Regina
Trench and Vimy Ridge will never be forgotten.
As Mayor of this City I ask you, on behalf of its citizens, to accept this Address as
a memento of our appreciation of your loyalty, self-sacrifice and patriotism. Services such
as yours are not remunerated in gold, rather will you find your recompense in the respect
and regard which all will offer to one who has so bravely fought and bled in his Country's
service.

WEEK'S    VESSEL    LOSSES
SHOW LARGE DECREASE
London, Jan. 16.—Another
marked decrease in the sinkings
of British merchantmen by mine
or submarine in the last week is
noted in the reported of the Admiralty issued tonight. In this
period only six merchantmen of
1,600 tons or more were sunk,
and in addition, two merchantmen under 1,600 and two fishing
vessels.
The summary follows:
"Arrivals of British merchantmen, 2,106; sailings, 2,184.
"British merchantmen sunk
by mine or submarine, more then
1,600 tons, two; fishing vessels,
two.
"Merchantmen unsuccessfully
attacked, Ave.
In the previous week tho Admiralty reported the loss by mine
or submarine of eighteen merchantmen of 1,600 tons or more,
three merchantmen under that
tonnage, and four fishing vessels.
The report of January 2 gives
the sinkings at twentyone, eighteen being of 1.600 tons or more.
Of all the British vessels damaged by enemy action . between
January and ! October, 1917, it
has been found impossible to
salve four only, according to a
statement made by Thomas J.
Macnamara, financial secretary
of the Admiralty, in the House
of Commons today.   Of the re
mainder repairs to more tnan
half have been actually completed
Mr. Macnamara explainer! that
the vessels reported weekly as

damaged.' The vessels damaged
by attack are not included in the
weekly returns until they become
total losses.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 19th, 1918
JERUSALEM.
Tne capture of Jerusalem, like
the conquest of Quebec during
the Seven Years' War, is a success quite outside the decisive
military Held, and yet it may
have consequences as momentous
for the future history of the
world as any single event of the
present war. It promises to lead
at once to the complete independence of Arabia and the consequent deposition of the Turkish
Sultan from the Mohammedan
caliphate. It represents the tri-
umph ol tlie Crusades after al-
moi t a thousand years, and de-
livi is rhe city, which is holy both
lo .lews and to Christians, from
the age long hold of the Moslems. Finally, it is perhaps the
lirst step in the restoration of
the Jews to their Promised Land,
an event to which faith sustained
by prophesy has looked forward
for many centuries.
But the future of Jerusalem is
still undetermined; it is to its
remarkable past that we invite
the readers attention for a moment. No existing city, unless
it be Damascus, has so great an
antiquity. As we learn from the
Tel-el-Amarna letters that were
found in Egypt in 1877, there
was a prince in Jerusalem three
thousand three hundred years
ago.
Palestine then lay midway between the great empire on the
Nile and that on the Tigris, and
it has always been the pathway
between Asia and Af.ica. If
Belgium is the cockpit of Europe,
Palestine is the cockpit of Asia.
From time immemorial armies
have marched across it and
fought for ihe possesion of it,
civilizations have met there in
battle, and conquerors have laid
il waste, No other city has
passed under the hands of so
many diffeient masters as Jerusalem; Jebusites, Egyptians,
Jews, Assyrians, Babylonians,
Macedonians, Syrian Creeks,
Romans, Persians, Byzantines,
Arabians, French and German
Crusaders, Saracens, Turks and
now British have in turn occupied
it. The names of David and
Solomon, Amenophis, and Ptolemy, Sennacherib ai d Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander and Pompoy,
Cyrus and Antiochus, Titus and
Justinian, Maccabeus and Khor-
sii. Omar and Saladin, Godfrey
a id Frederick 11 are all part of
its history, It has been three
times leveled to tbe ground and
as often rebuilt. It is holy—if
not in equal degree, slill holy—
to Jew, to Christian and to Moslem.
A wonderful story, and a city
that would have been wonderful
even though it were not made
sacred to us all by its associations
with the life and the death of
Jesus. The Kaiser, whose love
of the dramatic would have been
intensely gratified if he could
himself have entered Jersualem
as its king and conqueror, must
have leen annoyed to learn lhat
it was in the hands of his cl ief
enemy.
WHO WOULD GO TO KAISER'S {5
PARTY?
A recent statement by the Ber-
linger "Zeitung" that the Kaiser
had decided, should the plenipotentiaries of the Central Empires
and the Bolsheviki reach an a-
greement, to try and assemble
"all the Soverigns and Regents
of Europe in a peace conference,
as was done after the Napoleonic
wars," is rather amusing. It ar-
gues an ignorance of the systems
of government among the En
tente powers with which no one
will realiy credit the "Zeitung."
It seems rather an attempt to
persuade the German people who
do not understand foreign sys-
terns of Government, of the
dove-like nature of the Kaiser.
Who would go to the Kaiser's
party, and whaf could they do in
the way of commitments for
peace? He might invite Cousin
Nicky, late of the Winter Palace,
Petrograd, but the ex-Czar could
no more negotiate for the entire
Russian nation than can Leon
Trotsky. And then there is His
Gracious Majesty King George,
who could no more commit Great
Britain to peace without the consent of the Prime Minister and
Parliament than could one of his
Yeomen of the Guard. The King
of Italy, who holds his throne on
a very precarious tenure, would
be equally powerless. Ptesident
Wilson would not be included in
the invitations, and anyway he
has announced that he would
have no truck nor trade with
the Hohenzollems, because he
regards them as devoid of honor
and unworthy of belief, and President Poincaire of France is credited with similar views. The
Kaiser's brother-in-law, Tino,
late of Athens, might attend,
but he, too, is a monarch without
a throne. It is quite apparent
that the "Sovereigns and Regents of Europe," if they should
foregather, could do little more
than exchange yarns and smoke
cigars.—Saturday Night.
THE KAISER'S GIFT TO
POSTERITY
Rumor has it that the Kaiser
is revising the proofs of a volume that will contain the text of
all the speeches that he has delivered since the war began.
This is good news to historians.
It will be important to future
generations that his utterances
should be on record, and some of
his extravagances make jolly
reading for his enemies.
When the Kaiser's speeches
come to be catalogued in the
public libraries of the world, will
they be classified under the head
of "Theology," or "Politics"?
Our vote is for "Theology," for
from these speeches we get a
new conception of God as a purely German institution, something
like the Jehovah of the ancient
Hebrews. That the Almighty
just now wears a pickelhauber
helmet, and is subject to Hinden-
berg's orders of the day, the
Kaiser has no doubt, if we may
trust his speeches. For instance
his la>4 cabled address, issued on
Christmas morning, contained
following sentence:
"The year 1917, with its great
battles, has proved that the German people has in the Lord of
Creaton above an unconditional
and avowed ally on whom it can
resolutely rely. Without him all
would have been in vain."
The Kaiser cherishes none of
the hesitation which charactei-
ized a clergyman who, during
the American Civil War, remarked to Abraham Lincoln: "I hope,
Mr. President, that the Lord is
on our side." No doubt he
would regard as equally weak
and contemptable the humility
of Lincoln's reply: "That does
not concern me; what concerns
me is that we should be on the
Lord's side."

FIRES IN SCHOOLS MEAN
HEAVY LOSSES
School buildings are just as
susceptible to serious damage by
fire as   other  structures,   and
should be as well built and protected as other buildings.   The
record by fires in schools in Canada shows that, during the last
four years,  a fire has occured
every week in a public school or
residental college.     The direct
financial loss resulting from these
i fires amounts to more than $1,-
1250,000.    A   careful   study  of
j conditions shows that less than
i one per cent of our schools are
I in any sense fire-resisting and
I that over 60 per cent are built of
wood.
The safety from fire of the 28,-
000 public schools of Canada, in
which over 1,250,000 children receive their education, has received
little attention outside of cities
and towns where building ordinances govern methods of construction.
The people, as a whole, favour
efficient fire protection in schools
but, when it comes to the question of a single building, the local
public almost invariably votes
for the cheapest type of construction. Up to the present,
loss of life in the schools of Canada has not been such as to a-
rouse a strong public spntiment
in favour of improved construction.—J.G.S.
In 1915, Canada consumed over
43,000,000gallonsof gasolene. Of
this amount about 5 percent was
produced from Canadian crude,
while the remainder was either
imported direct or produced from
imported crude. This fact shows
the dependence of Canada upon
supplies of gasolene and petroleum from United States.
Expressed in terms of wheat,
the value of the field crops destroyed annually in Canada by
insect pests is sufficient to feed
our entire population for a year.
INDISPUTABLY A PHENOMENON
"What is a phenomenon?" asked one workman of another.
This enlightening definition is
quoted in Young's Magazine: "It
is like this: Suppose you were to
go out into the country and see a
field of thistles growing."
"Yes."
"Well, that wouldn't be a
phenomenon."
"No, that's quite clear, "agreed
the other man.
"But suppose you were to see
a lark singing away up in the
sky."
"Yes."
"Well, that wouldn't be a phenomenon."
"No, that also seems clear."
"But imagine there is a bull
in the field."
"Yes."
"Even that wouldn't be a phenomenon."
"No."
"But, now, Bill, look here.
Suppose you saw that bull sitting
on them thistles and whistling
like a lark—well, that would be
a phenomenon."
France is taking steps to ensure
the economic development and
control of her mineral and metal
industries after the war. A corn-
pay has been formed, entitled the
"Societe Minerais et Metaux,"
with a capital of two million dollars ftr the purpose of fostering
and protecting the industries of
the country. The company, which
is representative of existing interests, is not a profit-making
enterprise so much as an organization which has for its object the
improvement and development
of the methods of distribution,
treatment and marketing of the
metels produced in France and
her colonies.

high school boys worked on Ontario farms last year,
In Long Distance Telephoning you get Service
The value of the telephone is not only its convenience, but at any time you can reach anyone you
want. All you have to do is to call Long Distance,
give the name and address of the party wanted
and the time at which you would like to talk, and
she will do the rest. Be they far or near, travelling or at home, they will be located and will be
available at the appointed time. Long distance
telephone service is much more comprehensive
than one realizes.

TEAK DEPTH BOMBS
London, Jan. 15 —German
newspapars, in referring to Anglo-American measures against
submarines, indicate that the
employment of depth charges
has been greatly increased and
perfected since American destroyers arrived in European waters. In the old days the destroyer was content to drop two
or three depth charges in the vicinity where a submarine was
last seen, hut now, according to
Ihe German accounts, it is not
unusual to find the destroyers
persisting in dropping depth
bombs until as many as forty
have been exploded, covering a
wide area where the submarine
is likely to be hiding.
The Germans admit that this
is very unpleasant for the operators of the U-boats. Thus, ihe
Nord Deutsche Allgemaine Zeitung contains the following account of the experiences of U-
boat men in the water patrolled
by Ihe American destroyers:
"One of our submarines shot a
heavily laden steamer of 5000
tons out of a convoy. A violent
enemy counter-attack followed.
The destroyers left the convoy
and followed the submarine, and
n the course of a few minutes
dropped 39 bombs around the
spot where the U-boat was supposed to be submerged. Luckily
they failed to hit her, and our
U-boat escaped unscathed. The
same submarine was previously
followed by two air-planes from
midday until evening, and pelted
with 23 bombs, but escaped."
The same paper contains an account of a submarine cruiser
which had a narrow escape from
destruction in the explosion of a
munition ship which she torpedoed from too close a range. The
steamer, runs the account, blew
up, "with a terrific detonation,
wrapped in a column of flame,
and in the next second the flames
disappeared aid the steamer was
gone."
The force of the explosion upset the submarine's steering apparatus and did other damage,
but the crew finally succeeded in
effecting repairs so that the U-
boat managed to get into port,
Mrs. William J. Bryan is as active a public speaker as her more
famous husband, and equally
clever in the use of happy illustrations of her arguments. In
•t recent address on suffcage, for
example, she remarked that man
has always opposed those things
vhich spoke for progress. He
•el'erred to Hi" first matches as a
nellish invention. The cooking
dove, too, was thought by him
o be dangerous, and the baby
b iggy was looked upon as a de-
vice which was certain to carry
ivomap daily miles from her
■Mine and cause neglect of her
hities. Sired lighting was op-
iiiscd as bound lo increase im-
noralily and lo cause people to

It was slated In the British
'arliament recently that in the
iolnred labor battalions In France
there were ovei 10,000 men. and
the high commissioner was authorized lo raise the number to
10,000 more,   In East Africa the
icord was much the same.
'here were also twoor three reg-
inputs of the King's African Ri-'
les. At present twenty hat talons were being raised. The
lumber in existence amounted to
'0,0011 men, which would lie
irought up to 30.00. During one
■ear neare 200.000 than 150.000
