CHANCELLOR SAYS
SITUATION IS BAD
Von Bethman Hollweg Admits
Conditions are Such that they
Cannot Continue.
Paris,June 27, "Our situation
is bad. If everything goes well
we can stay a few more months.
If the people will be satisfied
with small results, we can last
until March, 1917."
Chancellor von Bethmann-
Holhveg is reported to have made
the foregoing statement at a secret council held in Berlin last
week. It is published in the Journal, which states it wa? obtained
from a confidential document
drawn up by two deputies, who
attended the council.
The Conservatives demanded
the resumption of unrestricted
i submarine operations. In reply
the chancellor said:
"We have only twenty high sea
submarines, divided into squadrons of five; One of these squadrons is always in dock for repairs
'Cur other submarines are necessary for coast defense."
The Conservatives then demanded the instant building of
more submarines. Admiral von
Capelle replied that last year
more could not be built because
of the shortage of certain metals.
The chancellor then said:
"Not a dav passes but I am
visited by Austro-Hunganan and
Turkish deputies who threaten a
seperate peace unless we cease
the submarine warfare. They
fear that, after the war, the
Allies and the United States will
entirely paralyze their overseas
trade." ■
Dr. Hglfferich, the Imperial
secretary of the treasury, remarked: "Financially we can last
through the war, but afterward
our bankruptcy is inevitable. We
have already lost billions of
marks in exchange."
Foreign Minister von Jagow
then said:
"The only great power we are
not at war with is the United
States. Spain is favorable to us.
The Swedish Government and
big business interests are with
us. Norway is hostile. The
Danish ministry is with us, but
the people are against us.   Hol
land is frankly pro-ally. Switzerland is not exactly among our
enemies, but is rather against us."
Angernd at tlie Consei". atives'
attitude on the submarine question, von Bethmann-Hollweg banged the table with his fist and
exclaimed:
"Remember, gentlemen, we
have only one means of salvation.
That is to detach Franco from
the Allies. We must obtain a
breakdown of the French confidence at all costs."
Thereupon the Conservatives
demanded that a great blow be
dealt France, no matter at what
sacrifices.
The chancellor pointed out that
the greatest possible sacrifices
were being made at Verdun without overcoming the French re-
sis' ance.
The Boy Scouts will have a
welcome holiday after the busy
days which they have just finished at their annual school ex-
apiinations which are now of the
past.
One of the events most looked
forward too, is camp, and in a
few days, the Scouts with their
Scoutmaster A. J. Taylor and
assistant scoutmasters White and
Bannermen will pitch their tents
on Dr. Millard's beach which he
has generously granted to the
boys. This beach is an ideal spot,
and combined-with all the pleasures of the sea they have a
splendid field for sports,-as well
as good bathing facilities.' The
West Cumberland Conservative
Band has promised the Scoutmaster to come down some afternoon and give them some good
musical selections, which will be
greatl^appreciated,
, The Wolf Cubs Patrol under
the leadership of Rev. Bischlag-
er will camp it Royston. It is
their intention at present to go
on Monday and we have no
doubt the boys will be well looked after, and have a very enjoyable time under camp discipline-
Both camps are in the immediate vicinity and parents and
friends can pay a visit to the boys
as no doubt time will be arranged
for visitors.
Dr. F. G. Keene of Victoria
will arrive in this city to-day
and remain for a week on a
visit to Cumberland and district.
He will be prepared to make appointments for first class denis-
trj and painless extraction. Particulars later.

Dear Sir: I am writing to ask
if it would be possible for the!
city council to have the drinking
trough which stands outside the
Willard Block emptied and cleaned out. At present the bottom
is covered with old cans and
rubbish and the water has a dirty
appearance. I am sure our dumb
friends would much appreciate a
clean trough and clean water this
hot and dusty weather.
Yours faithfully,
Arthur Bischlager.
This was received and the
trough ordered to be cleaned. A
communication from Margaret
A. O'Neil, secretary of the Girl
Guides, saying that she had been

Cumberland Patriotic Girls."

SATURDAY, JULY 1st, 1916
The great development of byproducts coking of coal in Germany hits assured her an uninterrupted and .adequate supply of
modern explosives. The value of
this development may be measured by the importance of munitions in deciding the outcome of
the war. In the past the whole
world has been dependent upon
Germany for dye-stuffs and other
substances prepared from tie
derivatives of coal tar. Thus
both in peace and war Germany
possessed a great industrial advantage over other nations.
British plants are now being
established to cope with the demand for picric acid and trinitrotoluene, while the United States
is also profiting by tho lesson
learned from the war. Before
the war there was but one company in the United States producing distillation products on a
large scale, while the latest
statistics show that over 8,000,000
tons of coal were carbonized in
by-product ovens iaet yeai,
yielding over 4,800,000 gallons of
benzol and 1,300,000 gallons of
toluol. The full annual capacity
of the benzol recovery plants
now in operation and in course of
construction is estimated to exceed
20,000,000 gallons.
Although Canada has the third
largest reserves of coal in the
world, beehive coke ovens, wasting tbe by-products, are still used
in some sections and not a single
.additional by-product oven has
been installed since the war. The
war should teach Canada the obvious lesson that, whether for
war or peace, it is criminal folly
to neglect the utmost utilization
of those resources which are lying latent in her bounteous supplies of bituminous coal.—W.J.D,

covered with venison and all the
luxuries of the season. With
good health we can sleep sweetly
on a straw mattress, while fashionable invalids get but little rest
on a couch of eagle's down. Let
us remember Paul's advice to the
Hebrews, and if we have health
in all other respect "Be content
with such things as ye have."
ll is so easy to criticise one's
neighbor who has gone wrong in
morals, or made a failure in business, and so hard to give credit
for the effect of the influences
impelling him to disaster, over
which he has no control, that out-
criticism of others is often verj
uncharitable. Men often say how
good they would have been or
what good tbey would have accomplished had they been in tht
other man's place. They do not
stop to ask why the fellow that
was in the other shoes did not
succeed. If they did they would
often find the man who went
wrong, or who failed, was entitled to great credit for standing
up so bravely under forces and
burdens that might easily have
overthrown his accusers. Sometimes the man who fails is a
greater hero than another who
wins.
The grandest luxury God ever
gave man is health. He who
trades that off for all- the palaces
of the earth is cheated. Many
have envied Napoleon, but he
would gladly have given all his
honors to have been freed from
the gout. A dinner of herbs
tastes better to the appetite
sharpened on a woodman's ax or
a scythe,, than wealthy indigestion experiences seated at a table
Young man! Young woman!
Don't let your lives be failures,
Make the best of what God has
given you, Let your gratitude
to Him for life and its noble endowments, be exerted'in a full
devotion of will, and thought,
and strength, to whatevei work
He brings in His wise providence
to your hand, And remember,
that it is only good and useful
work that He provides. Shun
evil work—work that harms your
neighbor in any way, as you would
shun the deadliest thing. No
true success ever comes from evil work. It may bring a harvest
of golden apples and purple
grapes; but the apples will be
like those of Sodom, full of bitter
ashes, and grapes sour,
It I as been said that from the
same materials one builds palaces,
another hovels; one warehouses,
another villas; bricks and mortar
are mortar and bricks until the
architect makes them something
else. The block of granite whic
was an obstacle in the path of
the weak becomes a stepping
stone in the pathway of the resolute. The difficulties which
dishearten one man only stiffin
the sinews of another, who looks
on them as a sort of mental
springboard by which to vault to
across the gulf of failure on to tho
sure ground of full success.
Thkt injunction to love your
neighbor as yourself, means the
neighbor in trouble as well as the
other who has a big automobile.

No  Names
A teacher waa trying to find from
a tiny child the name of hia fa .her,
He seemed Quite unable to think of
lt, so to help htm sho asked:
"What do you call him?"-.
"I call him father," was the reply.
"Well, what does your mother call
him?"
The response was eloquent rt the
manners of the neighborhood: "She
doesn't call him anything—sbe likes
him."
A  Foul  Insinuation
A lady who had called to see Mrs.
B. found her little son, Frank, ln the
library rubbing hia eyea and gaping.
"Sleepy?" Bhe Inquired.
"Um," grunted Prank.
"I suppose you usually'go to bed
with the chickens," smiled the visitor.
'No, 1 don't!" snapped Frank. "I
have a little bed ln my room all to
myself."
Just As Bad
She—Think how it disgraces me before the neighbors to have you come
home as you did last night, drunk."
He—but, my dear, nn one saw me.
8he—Suppose they didn't, tlioy must
have heard  me scolding you."
X   Restraining  Influence
Minister (calling nn,Inmate nf prison):  "Remember,  Mr.  Kenney,  that
stone walls do not p prison niiilto, nor
Iron bars a cage.
K»nny: "Well, th'y'vo got nio.hyp
nottzed then;   that's all."
Not on tht Menu I
Prospects, of a good meal were not
bright, but the fly-blown eating-house
was the only thing of its kind in the
neighborhood, so the trnvtller had no
choice but to enter and try his luck.
Sintering the dingy dining-room he
seated himself at a tabie covered by
a stained clnth.
A depressed waiter sauntered In
eventually.
"Have ynu any co'.d pin?" queried
the wayfarer.
"Kr—no, sir!"
'Any  chicken?"
"Er—no, sir!"
"Well, 1 suppose I can have s.-mo
beef, can't I?"
"Kr--no, sir!"
"Wha' on earth have you got in
tbo hoiiKP. then?"
"Er—bailiffs, elr!"
A Gloomy  Prospect
George, who lives In  London, happened to meet the viear of his native
parish and eagerly ashed p.fter s; ins
of his old acquaintances.
"And old Mr. Jones?" he asked.
"Have you  seen  hlm  lately?"
The viear shook his hem!. "I shall
never see hlirt again," he answered,
slowly. "Mr. JoneB has gone to
Heaven."

Laughter In Court
For an hour and a half the cross-
examination had continued. Counsr!
and witness both were growing weary
and Impatient—the witness, because
to him counsel's questions all seemed
Irrelevant; counsel because he eoull
not get the witness lo give a Straight
answer to a plain question.
"Now," he demanded, "were you t-r
were you not In plaintiff's olhce at
4 p.m. on this particular afternoon?"
"If I had been," replied the exasperated witness, "how—"
But before he could get further"
counsel interrupted him.
"I want no explanations," he rapprd
out; "merely a plain answer! 1 suggest that you wero in the plaintiff's
offlco.   Is that so?"
The witness obstinately shook his
head.
"Well?" continued the barrister.
"I've answered you," retorted the
witness; "I shook my head."
"Yes, yes, I know you did. I heard
lt rattle, but wasn't sure whether it
was up or down or from side to side.
Now, & plain answer, please! Yea
or no?"
Not Catching
One day Tommy appeared before
his teacher and said:
"My sister's got the measles, sir."
"Well, what are you doing here,
then?" replied the teacher severely.
"Don't you know any better than to
come to school whon your sister has
the meailes? Now, you go home and
stay there until sho Is well."
"If you please, sir, my sister lives
In London."
Through  With Him
"Willie, como right Into tho house.
I don't  want ynu  tn  play  with  that
little boy any more."
"All  riglit, mother.    I've Justtwon
bis last marble anyhow."
More  Important  '
That Tiorrld woman has'.broken up
my home!"
"Taken away your husband?"
"No, the cook."
\
Hit Only Chance
Willie—Paw, why was Adam created
[rat?
Paw—To give him a chance to.sayi
lomething, my son.
Regulations Self-made
"When I marry lt will he fnr love
only."
"Ib that so?"
"Positively."
"And If some poor man proposes to
you?"
"But he  won't.    I shall  lake  good
care not to fall in love with any nian
who  Isn't able    tn  provide  me  with
what luxuries I require."
An Eye-opener
A man went tn a Judge and asked
whether lie cnuld bring suit for slander against a mini who hnd called him
a rhinoceros
"Why, certainly," said the judge.
"When  did  he call ynu  that?"
"About  three  years ago."
"Three years ago! And you only
start suit to-day?"
"But, your honor, yesterday I saw
a rhinoceros for the ,lrst time."
Already  Done Once
Everbroke—Say, lend me'anothor
Ave. You know, what's been-.done
ince can be done again.
Oottit—I can't. i
Second Husband
Smith: "Does your wifo think yoti're
e bett man who ever lived?"
Jones:   "Of course  not!      I'm ther
|econd husband." j     >
A Negative Quantity
"Ah!" he sighed, "If you nnly gave
me the least hope I "
"Gracious!" Interrupted the hard-
hearted belle. "I've been giving you
the least 1 ever gave lo ary man."
He  Had   Learned
Teacher—What    Is meint    by  the
seat of trouble? —
Tommy—I know.   After a spanking.

The Holy Trinity Church Tea
and Sale of Work proved quite a
success on Tuesday afternoon
last. Held amid such beautiful
surroundings and favoured with
glorious weather it could hardly
have been otherwise. It is quite
a toil to Mrs. Piket's garden but
the welcome shade provided by
the spruce bough booths erected
by Mr. Bruce and a refreshing
cup of tea amply compensated the
visitors for their efforts. It was
a great day for ice cream and that
and the strawberries were in
great demand. Of course Mrs.
Piket's famous candies upheld
their reputation and everybody
that came bought some. A snm
of just over $G0 was realized after all expenses were paid.
