BRITAIN'S MIGHTY FLEET
London, June 7—The contention of Mr. Winston Spencer
Churchill that the British navy
has been increasing in strength
by leaps and bounds since the
beginning of the war is borne out
by known additions to the fltet
of superdreadnoughts which
were not completed when war
was declared.
The list of new ships includes
such vessels as the Barham, the
Malaya, the Ramillies, the Resolution, the Revenge, the Royal
Oak, the Royal Sovereign, the
Valant and the Warspite, each
displacing 27,500 tons, and carrying in the main batteries' eight
15-inch guns. '
The Queen Elizabeth is one of
this group of super-dreadnoughts
and is the only one of the new
ships which has been put into
the fighting line. The reason for
employing the Queen Elizabeth
has been to determine any defects in mountings or battery
equipment, which defects, if
developed, could be taken advantage of and guarded against in
the final inspection in the newer
ships.
In addition to the above vessels
the British Admirality has been
keeping well in hand a number
of 25,000 ton super-dreadnoughts
such as the Ben bow, the Empress
of India, the Iron Duke and the
Marlborough, each mounting in
the main battery ten 13.3-inch
guns.
Still a third class of dreadnoughts, each approximately
23,000 tons, is being well kept in
hand. This class is represented
by the Centurion, the Conqueror
the King George, the Monarch,
the Orion and the Thunderer. The
Audacious belongs to this class
also. The Audacious was torpedoed off the Irish coast, wa3
taken into port, and is again in
the fighting line ready for active
service.
These 23,000-ton ships each
mount in their main batteries
the same number and same calibre big guns as the 25,000 ton
class. .,
The original dreadnought; is
being held in reserve. This .-ship
was built after the original Cun-
niberti ideas, involving a 17,000
ton craft, except that the British
Admirality found it necessary to
add 900 tons. The Dreadnought
mounts ten 12-inch guns.
Not one of the above ships has
been in action since the war began, and all Britain understands
that the country is relying on
this force of super-dreadnoughts
to dispute the mastery of the seas
in the even that the German
high sea fleet ever ventures out
of its Cuxhaven hiding. Britain
showed in her orders following
the loss of the Cressy, the
Aboukir and the Hogue that she
did not intend to risk vessels
except in attack on vessels of
the same class.
The policy of not risking destroyers in search of submarines
is actuated, it is believed, by the
conviction that sooner or
later the main British fleet will
be called upon to measure
strength with the high sea fleet
of the Germans, and for that day
and hour England is waiting.
When the main British fleet of
super-dreadnoughts steams forth
to battle it will be accompanied
by a destroyer squadron of unusual numbers. The super-
dreadnought fleet is believed to
be on the west coast of Ireland
at a point which will enable it to
steam to either the entrance of
the English' Channel or to the
North Sea over courses of practically the same steaming distances.
DEPENDENT ON HER FORESTS
The proper interpretation of
forestry, and what it actually
means to Canada, cannot be
stated too frequently. The future
of this country depends upon our
making every acre productive.
Broadly speaking, the earth's
surface can be made productive
in two ways only, by producing
agricultural or timber crops.
South of the 60th parallel, about
69 percent of the area of Canada
! is unsuited for agricultural crops
A very large proportion of this
i non-agricultural land is suitable
I for the production of merchant-
! able timber. The production of
forest products has been and will
always be one of our chief industries. At the present time
forest industries supply 12 per
cent of our foreign trade, 16 pet-
cent of our railroad traffic, and
equal in value our annual wheat
crop. We have a choice to make.
Shall we let these valuable
industries perish for want of raw
material or shall we perpetuate
them by protection of our present
mature timber from fire, by protection of the young forests of
our non-agricultural lands, and
by the logg ng of our forests in
such a manner as to encourage
the reproduction of valuable
forests? The perpetuation of
these industries and their source
of raw material by the investment of such expenditure as the
anticipated crop will warrant is
forestry.
COAL 0AS RESIDUALS
Coal gas residuals form the
bases of many industries. Owing
to the great developement of byproduct coke ovens and gas
plants in Germany and the application of modern chemistry to
the utilization of their by-products, these industries have been
largely controlled by that 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 partsof the British Empire
There are two large by-product
coke ovens in Canada which produce 67 per cent of our coke out
put. These plants are situated at
Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, and at
Sydney, N.S. Since the outbreak
of war, the lattter plant has been
installing a benzol recovery
plant, but in western Canada,
there are numerous beehive coke
ovens which do not save any byproducts whatsoever. Again,
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 is the means of
reducing the cost of production
in a degree corresponding to the
efficiency of the recovery methods
adopted and the market value
of the products.
NEARLY FATAL ACCIDENT
Courtenay, B. C, Jume 9—
Herbert Bridges, one of the
leading agriculturists in this
district, was holding a stake
while his brother was driving it
with an axe, when the head of the*
the flew off, striking Mr. Bridges,
in the face and inflicting a serious wound. Had the axe head
struck Mr. Bridges with the
sharp edge it would probably
have killed him. Dr. Millard
attended him and found it necessary to put several stitches in.
On Monday night a man named
Watty Wilson, of Cumberland,
was behaving in an excited manner, being intoxicated, at Roy's
beach. Mr. Hicksbeach, police
magistrate, Courtenay, remonstrated with him as he was armed
with a revolver, and was threatening to shoot a dog. The man
Wilson then became abusive and
waved the weapon about in a
dangerous way, and Magistrate
Hicksbeach notified the police.
Provincial Constable Hanny was.
quickly on the scene but in the
meantime Wilson had disappeared
and though the bush was search
ed thoroughly for some time it
was too dark to discover him. He
was arrested, however, yesterday
morning and placed in jail.
Wilson has been working for
some time on the government
roads. It appears that the sinking of the Lusitania affected
him greatly, as it is said that he
has carried a revolver ever since.
Now is the time to purchase
screen doors and window screens
i before the hot weather comes on.

SATURDAY, JUNE 12th, 1915.
The Work of the Red Cross.
Toronto, May, 10 For three
months all Serbia has been one
great charnel house of dead and
dying. Deaths to date have
reached a grand total of 75,000.
Though the epidemic of typhus
is now declared to be under control it is freely admitted that a
grim harvest of 100,000 human
beings will have been reaped before it can be entirely stamped
out. When the present war broke
out there was in all Serbia, with
a population of* 5.000,000 people,
onlv 900 doctors. The service of
all these had to go at once to the
army, leaving the civilian population without medical help. Of
this heroic little band of doctors
one third have already fallen
victims to the epidemic.
Terrible as this lack of doctors
is, it is nothing in comparison
with the lack of hospitals and
medical susplies. So scarce were
the latter following Serbia's last
great battle , that the bandages
had to be taken from those less
seriously hurt and reused on
grave cases. A black flag in
' Serbia marks each house where
the disease has victims but each
flag usually means two or three.
Twenty centuries ago from the
heart of what is now Serbia went
up a cry for help that has since
rung down the ages. It is the cry
"Come to Macedonia and help
us." The same cry is ringing out
today.
The Canadian Red Cross Society, realizing the awful conditions existing in Serbia today,
recently donated $5,000 for relief
in that unhappy country. Nobly
are the people of Canada giving
to the many patriotic and national funds in connection with the
war; out of the fulness of their
generous hearts we feel sure
they will be able to spare a little
for Serbia.
Donations may be sent to-Sir
Edward Boyle. Bart., Treasurer
of the Serbian Relief Fund, 63j
Queen's Gate. London, S.W.'
England, or to Lady Boyle, Serbian Red Cross Society, 5 Cromwell Road, London, S.W. England.
The newly formed branch of
the Canadian Red Cross Society

This branch has also sent large
shipments of supplies and endowed a number of cots in the
Duchess of Connaught Red Cross
Hospital at Cliveden.
After the battle of Langemarck
Colonel Hodgetts, Commissioner
of the Canadian Red Cross Society
in London cabled Mr. Noel Marshall, chairman of the Executive
Committee, for $15,000 with
which to purchase surgical and
medical supplies. The committee
transferred the money by cable
within an hour of getting the
message. The Commissioner also
cabled that the Canadian War
Contingent Association was doing
an excellent work in the prompt
manner in which they were distributing supplies.
By subscribing the sum of $50
Mr.  and Mrs.  Huron   Rook of
Santa Barbara, California, have
become life members of the
Canadian Red Cross Society.
This is another . example of the
spendid manner in which the
citizens of the United States are
supporting the work of the
society.
' The citizens of Orillia have
answered the appeal for maple
sugar and syrup for the Canadian Hospitals in a splendid
manner and the branch of the
Red Cross Society in that town
sent a few days ago a large number of tins containing the maple
product. They also sent two
barrels of jams and marmalade.
These luxuries will be sent to the
hospital at Cliveden where they
will be enjoyed by the sick and
wounded Canadian soldiers* The
society will be glad -to receive
maple products   and   asks the
farmers of Ontario and Quebec
specially to supply this luxury to
our soldiers.
The Canadian Red Cross Society
have received six wash cloths
which were knitted by a little
boy, only six years of age. With
the parcel he kindly sent his
photograph with a suitable little
message in his childish handwriting. How splendidly the
children of Canada are doing
their share in this terrible national crisis.
ln order to show how deeply
the soldiers at the front appreciate-the work of the Red Cross
the following extract from letters sent by a Canadian soldier
to a lady member of the McGil-
livary branch of the Red Cross
Society will be of interest—It
affords me great pleasure to
acknowledge receipt of a pair of THE ISLANDER. CUMBERLAND, B.C.

You can hardly realize what it
means to us to know that the
folks away back home are thinking and doing such things for us.
This soldier, who is a member of
the 5th battalion, 1st Canadian
Division, is only one of the many
thousands who are being made
happy and comfortable through
the kindness of the Red Cross
workers in Canada.
While the people of Canada
are purchasing and making comforts for our sick and wounded
soldiers and while supplies of all
kinds are being sent in to the
various provincial branches and
to headquarters, there are a
great many necessities that can
only be purchased by the officials
of the society. Especially is this
true of surgical supplies and
other things necessary for the
equipment of a hospital. The upkeep and equipment of hospitals
at the front and in England
necessitates a large outlay of
money and as the war progresses
expenses will naturally increase.
Subscriptions may be sent to the
local and provincial branches or
to headquarters at 77 King St.
East, Toronto, Canada.
In the small community of
Little Current, which is situated
on Manitoulin Island, the call ior
service has not been neglected or
unanswered and the women in
that somewhat distant part of the
country have been filled with zeal
to work for the great cause.
From the women's Patriotic
League in that town the Canadian
Red Cross Society have received
the sum of $50. No better example
could be given of the spirit of the
Canadian people in the present
war. The smaller the place the
greater seems to be t'r e sacrifice.
The Canadian Red Cross Society
have received a generous gift of
jams and preserves from the
local branches at Brockville and
St. Catherines. These will be
sent to the Duchess of Connaught
Red Cross Hospital which made
a special appeal for these luxuries
for the sick and wounded
soldiers.
Persons desiring information
as to the progress of sick and
wounded Canadians are advised
to write to Hugh Langdon Esq.
University of Toronto Library.
Mr. Langdon has charge of the
Canadian end of the Canadian
Red Cross Information Bureau
and receives weekly files containing the names of all Canadian
in military hospitals. Application
should be made by letter only,
accompanied by a stamped addressed enve ope.
The Canadian Red Cross Society
has  received the  sum   of $30,
being the proceeds of a baseball
match by the girls of the fourth
book in the public school at
Strathroy, Ont. This game was-
played in the Alexandra Park on
April 24 between giris from 12 -
14 years of age and was well
patronized by the citizens of
Strathroy. This is another example of the sp endid manner in
which the children of Canada are
assisting the work of the Red-
Cross.
