EFFECTIVELY BLOCKADED
ROME, June 19.-—Silence  about the
naval operations in the Adriatic must not
be thought to imply inactivity of tlie Italian fleet, which, on the contrary, is paralyzing successfully every movement of the
Austrians   by   maintaining  an  effective
close blockade of the Adriatic,  which  it I
continually patrols.     Austrian  warships
ancl   torpedo  craft  do not dare to leave
their ports, ancl are thus prevented  con- i
centrating at one point or reinforcing the!
insufficient naval forces scattered along'
the Dalmatian coast.     For  al!   practical .
purposes the Austrian fleet has ceased to
be   a   fleet,     Observation   and wireless
stations on the  Dalmatian Islands  have
been destroyed, and thus the movements
of the Italian fleet are unknown  to Austria. Yet the entire Austrian fleet, though
condemned to inactivity keeps steam   up
and is alway ready.   Since surprises are
feared, and especially  night  attacks, the
strain upon the officers and crew is tremendous and as a consequence their morale
is of the lowest.     The  majority  of  the
crews indeed belong to the Italian  unredeemed provinces,  and their sympathies
are with the enemy.    As to  the  actual
fighting of the Italian fleet it has,  during
the last fortnight, twice bombarded Mon-
falcone,  which  the  Italian  troops now
occupy, once  the Dalmatian  coast and
once the Islands, with good results, while
naval airships dropped bombs over Pola,
Fiume and Sebenico.
If the result of the naval operations
had consisted only in paralyzing the Austrian fleet, such result would be sufficient,
since it proves the superiority of the Italians, which the enemy seriousiy and fully
recognize.
George and Miss Tarbell, of C. H. Tarbell and Son. returned home on Tuesday
evening from a visit to the Panama exposition.

GLEAN UP
Did you ever take a jai nt through the
alleys of this beautiful (?) little town?
Y'ou can tell more about the inhabitants
if a town by a trip through the back
alleys than many persons imagine. Some
of the back yards are neat as pins while
others would put an old brush fence hog
i u to shame. We are glad to say that
he latter are few and far between. Back
.■ards relied the character of the
iwners, Sometimes the front yards will
be bubbling over with flower beds and
posies and thr back yards will be chiefly
s op barrels, tin cans and rubbish. You
can guess what kind of people live there.
3 ''.vetin.es both front yards and. back
yards correspond and are wrecks alike.
You can easily place the owners. Sometimes both front and back yards show tin*
ttmost rare and attentior, and it is hard
to tell which is the cleaner. You have no
trouDle in classifying the people who live
there. If either the front or back yard
must be neglected let it be Ihe front one.
D in t try to present a Queen Ann Front
.vith a Mary Ann Back. An ill kept back
y ird is dangerous and a menace to good
health.
The City Council held their regular
session gon Monday evening*. Accounts
amounting to $43.27 were referred to the
Finance Committee. Several b;ck yards
that required cleaning up are to receive
he attention of the city constable. A war
ut in the salaries of the school teachers
came up for consideration but the Council
nade no recommendation. The McLellan
bill of costs was received and filed,

SATURDAY. JUNE 19th, 1915.
SOMETHING has already been
said in these columns on the subject of free importation of fuel
oil into Canada. It is a question
which will not down. Does the
average citizen realize that it is,
without exception, the most momentous question which confronts
him? Does he realize that on its
proper solution depends the prosperity, net only of Cumberland I
and other coal-mining towns, bnt
of the entire province? For that
is the literal truth. A swift return
to almost normal conditions, with
work and wages for all; or a long
it-ul gloomy sojourn in tlie
doldrums of depression, with a
hrm' percentage of the population <
chionically on the verge of actual
starvation.
'1 he great war is a matter of]
tremendous importance to ns. as
to the whole world, The land
(tie ..ion is of more enduring interest, because it affects thei
future remotely as well as imme-

COMMENT
The fearless editor may offend
and lose a subscriber, but if he
is right in the end he will gain
twelve. He may lose one advertiser but if he is right he will
gain five thereby. If he tries to
ride all the horses in the field he
will be unhorsed by each of them
The editor should follow his earnest well-considered convictions,
and the man whom he should
labour to please is himself. If he
does this with ability and without
tear or favour he will have a
greater following and better
support than he who trims his
sails to every changeable breeze,
and without chart or compass,
principle or purpose, drifts aimlessly about with every shifting
tide.
Never find fault because a
newspapers fails to .give every
scrap of news so long as you take
no pains to give the editor information. The average editor!
is not a medium or a mind reader,
but he gets the news the same
way that a milkman gets iris
milk- by pumping. This is true
especially of that class of items
known as "personals." Righi y
they are not 'puffery,' but simply
personal mention for the information of local readers, and those
having friends visiting them,
should always let the local editor
know it and he will be glacl to
'jive it the proper notice. So if
you have a bit of news worth
printing put it in the way of our
pencil pusher.
