London, July 3rd.—A naval
action occurred this morning off

Gothland in the Baltic Sea. According to advices from Copenhagen the German mine layer
Albatross was run aground to
escape capture by four Russian
cruisers, and 21 of the crew were
killed and 27 were wounded. The
German battleship Wittelsbach
was damaged and a battleship of
the Kaiser class returned to Kiel
with many shots under the water
line. A German torpedo boat was
sunk, and a cruiser of the Madge-
burg type was also lost. The
Russian official report issued this

A PROBLEM IN FINANCE
Producers, sellers and users of
fuel oil are agreed in claiming
that three and a half barrels of
fuel oil, averaging 45 gallons per
barrel, is equivalent for steam
purposes to one ton of Vancouver
Island coal.
During the fiscal year ending
March 31st, 1914, imports of fuel
oil in British Columbia, at 45 gallons to the barrel, amounted to
2,450,614 barrels, which would be
the equivalent of 701,890 tons of
coal. These are the latest available figures, and they may be
taken as a working basis with
full assurance that no injustice
will be done to the fuel oil sicleof
the question, because it is quite
certain that whatever the actual
figures for the year ending March
31st, 1915, may be, they are
larger than those for 1914.
Now, 701,890 tons of coal has
been displaced with 2,456,614
barrels of fuel oil from California
valued at ,$2,278,918.00. An import duty of two cents per gallon
on this fuel oil would have yielded
to the Dominion a net revenue of
$2,210,953.06.
Principally owing to the depression in the coal mining industry the Government has been
paying out large sums during the
last nine or ten months for the
support of indigent people. No
figures are available as to the
total amount of such Government
relief, but it is safe to put it at
not less than $100,000.00. Probably it is double that amount.
Coal mined in the province pays
a royalty of ten cents per ton to
tlie Government. On the quantity given, the royalty would have
amounted to $70,189.00. There
is no royalty nor duty on fuel oil;
theGovernment received nothing.
The problem, then, may be
stated thus:
First: Certain manufacturers
and transportation companies,
which, were doing business at a
proiit on the use of coal before
fuel oil was introduced, have had
1 hundreds of thousands of dollars
added to their profits in one year.
Second: The Government has
lost $70,189 OU in royalties, plus
,SHin.i.i!ii1.1iii paid out in relief.
Third:   Tne  province at iargc
has lost millions of dollars.half of
iwhich   has   been  diverted  to a
"oreign industry, and  the  other

UNION JACKS IN  CANADA
In other countries on days of rejoicing or National Anniversaries flags
are unfurled from almost every
housetop or window.
Canadians are just as loyal bur unfortunately they find  themselves
tf or
short of flags.
In almost every city in Canada there
is a movement on foot now to see
that the old Flag is floating from
every Canadian home.
The newspapers have been asked
to assist in the distribution.
Zlvc ihUamVr has agreed to undertake the distribution in this district

The undeniable result is that
the business of the province
is paralysed. The problem is for
the few beneficiaries of this state
of things to juggle the facts in
such a way as to prove that this
result is something which the
many sufferers ought to accept
and be thankful for.
