from Lieut.-Cel. H. C. Lowther,
formerly military sepretary u the
Duke of Connaught, who was wounded during the early r;���'iiting between

Is written from Paris, is in part as

Delta Game Protective Association to
Remain Inoperative This
Owing to the fact that the farmers of the Delta failed to give the
support needed for the Delta Game
Protective Association it was decided
at the annual meeting of this association, held last Saturday afternoon
ln the municipal hall, that no game
wardens should be appointed this
this year.
It was these farmers who now
fail to give their support that had
agitated for an association to be
formed. Every farmer will non-
have to be his own game warden,
relying upon the laws governing
trespassing and gun licenses to protect the game.
The game association, however, is
only inoperative during the next
twelve months end will possibly
commence anew in the fall of 1915.
Hon.  Frank   Cochrane Will   Make
Official  Trip Over X.  T.  R.
and O. N. R. Lines.
OTTAWA, Oct. 7.���An inspection
of the eastern portion of two new
Canadian transcontinental railways,
completed this fall and now ready
for operation, will be made by Hon.
Frank Cochrane during tbe next
few weeks, the National Transcontinental Railway and the Ontario
section of the Canadian Northern
Railway being now finished. Mr.
Cochrane left last night for Quebec,
whero he will travel west over the
N. T. R. to Lake Superior Junction.
He will then go to Port Arhtur and
Will return east over the C. N. R.,
which Mackenzie & Mann now declare ls ready for operation. This
will be the first official inspection
over the C. N. R. since Canada became a two-fifths owner of the road.
With the completion of the N. T.
R. the question of its future at once
becomes a pressing question. Under
the agreement with the G. T. P. they
can now be called upon to operate
the line. There have been many
rumors that the G. T. P. intend to
repudiate the agreement. However, there is no evidence that thii
ls their intention. In view of the
present crisis and the fact that there
is still some work to do along the
N. T. R., the G. T. P. may not be
asked to operate the line until next
spring. In the meantime the Government may operate a service over
the road for the benefit of the set-
tiers who have already gone into
this new country. This question is
under advlsoment at present.
For some time the Intercolonial
has been operating a service between Moncton and Edmonton over
the New Brunswick section of the
N. T. R. Requests have been made
to have this service extended to
Levis and this will likely be done.
The only link of the N. T. R. now
uncompleted is the Quebec bridge.
This structure will not be ready for
several years, but a car ferry will be
operated instead. The ferry has air
ready arrived, but the approaches
will not be completed for some time.
Mohammedans  Are Reported  to Be
Massacring Men, Women and
ROME, Oct. 7.���Mohammedans
are massacring Christians in Albania
according to a news agency dispatch
received from Athens. The slaughter
Is said to have begun with tho assumption of the throne by Essad
Pasha, as Prince Mohmed. That Essad had become the ruler of Albania
was news here, lt was announced
several days ago that the Albanian
senate bad chosen the son of ex-Sultan Abdul Hamid, but it Is surmised
that Essad, being on the ground, had
forstalled him. An immediate investigation was begun by the Italian
government. If the Athens reports
are confirmed it Is thought likely
an Italian expedition will be sont to
the scene of the butchery to stop it.
Essad was a Turkish military
commander In Northern Albania
when the Balkan war broke out, and
distinguished himself by defending
Scutari against tho Montenegrins
through a long siege. After the
war he was instrumental in seating
Prince William of Wied on the Albanian throne, and become war minister. He fell out with William
later, however, and was exiled to
The dispatch staled that tho Albanian government Is making no effort to protect Christians. All the
villages near Boral, It Is declared,
havo been wiped out, and men, women and children alike are being
killed, and their homes burned.

LONDON, Oct. 6.���The Belgian
government has' issued a Gray Book

almost completely covered by similar British correspondence, but the
interesting revelation is made that
in 1911 the Belgian government
sought to obtain from the German
government a declaration that Germany had no intention of violating
Belgian neutrality.
The German Chancellor replied
that although Germany had no such
intention a public declaration to
that effect would weaken Germany's

Mr. D'Arcy Tait, vice-president of
the Pacific G-eat Eastern Railway,
has made an announcement to the
effect thnt during the month of August the expenditure on construction
work on the railway reached the
largest total yet recorded, the figures being over $1,500,000. Con-
-tuctlon work along the line from
tide-water far into the interior is
progressing rapidly, especially on
tbe long section fifteen miles ot
Quesnel to Fort George, where tho
effort of the company Is being exerted. "Once the war Is over I anticipate a greater degree of activities in British Columbia
before,"  stated  Mr. Tait.
These claims lie up the Duncan river, up Kaslo creek, about the various creeks near the lake and around
the town of Ainsworth.
The proposal that the United
States government purchase half
the sliver output of that country at
52 cents an ounce should re-establish Ihe price of the white metal and
will have a beneficial effect on silver mining In B.C. With the Mexican output demoralized hy the civil

Must Pay License Fee.
OLYMPIA, Oct. 5.���Dr. H. T.
Graves has received from the office
of the attorney general an opinion
ruling that any establishment that
sells or offers to sell milk, whether
in bottle or by the glass, must pay
a 6tate license of $1 a year. This
ruling apparently, thinks Dr. Graves,
thief of the department of agriculture, makes it necessary for a soft
drink parlor or a saloon where milk
or "milk shake" Is sold to take out
such license and a movement will be
started to collect tbe license fee from
the few thousand such establishments in the state. A copy af the
ruling will be sent to all the dairy
and milk inspectors in the state, says
Dr. Graves.

Jhe end of the present week the
board of county commissioners probably will fix the county tax levy for
1:' 14 and thc indications are that it
will be slightly lower than last year.
Valuations have Increased about half
a million dollars, mostly hitting the
city property, and the estimates of
the expense of running the county
government for next year are somewhat lower than last year. Therefore there will be less money to
raise by taxation and a greater valuation on which to make the levies.
County Assessor McArthur points
out that the valuations ln the city
have been increased $340,567 this
year while the Increase in the entire
county Is $508,102 over last year.
