Joffre Predicts Speedy
Termination of War
Paris.—General Joffre has predicted a speedy termination of
the war in victory for the Allies,
according to a despatch from
Dunkirk published in the Eclair.
The despatch from Dunkirk says:
"General Joffre, the French
commander-in-chief, in the course
of a visit to Belgian headquarters to decorate certain Belgian
officers with the legion of honor,
told King Albert and Premier
Broqueville that the war soon
would come to an end to the advantage of the Allies."

Snowstorm Wrecks
Holiday Business
Philadelphia.—The snowstorm
which struck the middle Atlantic
states on the 3rd became almost
a blizzard— the worst storm of
the winter in this section. Wire
communication with all New Jersey seashore resorts was interrupted, as was also steam railroad traffic and street car service, causing a partial paralysis
nf business. With the coming ol
the storm, the Easter plans of
most people went to pieces.

of being filled with holiday

Goes to London
Ottawa.—A message has been
received here that Sir Richard
McBride left New York on Saturday last aboard the Lusitania
for London.
The Premier of British Columbia spent several days of last
week in New York in company
with J. W. Stewart, president of
the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, lt is understood that they
carried on some negotiations for
the sale of bonds of that railway,
but a satisfactory price could not
be obtained, and Sir Richard has
now gone on to make a quick
trip to London to see what can
be done there in the way of financing the railway, whose construction bonds the British Columbia Government has guaranteed.

Petrograd. All the Austrian
prisoners from Przemysl have
now been sent into the Interior

and 113,890 soldiers. In addition
there were 6800 sick or wounded
persons whose condition prevents
their transportation and who are
still retained in hospitals at the
front. Austrian doctors and
nurses to the number of 289 have
been temporarily retained to look
after them.
New York.- The International
Merchantile Marine Company,
organized by J. P. Morgan & Co.
and controlling a great fleet of
steamships plying between the
United States and Europe, was
placed in the hands of a receiver
last week by the federal court.
The receiver named was P. A. S.
Franklin, vice-president of the
company. Action against the
company was taken by the New
York Trust Company, trustee of
its $..2,714,000 four and a half
per cent, collateral trust bonds,
interest on which has been defaulted. The proceedings are
understood to be friendly. Mr.
Franklin was placed under a
#50,000 bond and empowered to
continue the business of the company.
Arranging Loans in United States
New York. — Conferences a-
mong bankers here have brought
almost to a conclusion arrangements for the extension of credits to Great Britain, France,
Italy and other countries in addition to the $10,000,000 loan to
The French credit, it is expected, will be the first to be closed.
The amount has not been defin-
ately fixed, but may, it is said,
be as large as $50,000,000.
The British credit, it is said,
may be twice as large as that of
France. Negotiations are in
progress for a loan to Russia in
addition to the $25,000,000 she
recently obtained. Italy is likely
to obtain a credit.
Russians Capture
260,000 Prisoners
London.—According to a despatch received here from the
Petrograd correspondent of the
Daily Mail, the Russians have
taken 260,000 prisoners on the
Carpathian front since the Slav
advance started on January 21.
Another despatch to the Daily
Telegraph said the Russians for
some time past have taken prisoners in the Carpathians at the
rate of an army corps every two
John Oliver vs
Colony Farm Stock
We publish this week a letter
from Mr. John Oliver, in which
he reiterates his statements concerning Mr. Ellison's connection
with a company which Mr. Oliver
alleges is the owner of large
areas of land in the northern interior of the province.
In reply we again repeat with
the utmost emphasis possible our
statements made two weeks ago.
Mr.  Ellison does not now,  and
never has owned an acre of land
outside of  the  Okanagan.   He
has not purchased a single dol
lar's worth of public lands since j
he became a member of the Gov-!
ernment.     The  company  with
which he is connected does not
own any of these lands despite
the quotation from the advertisement furnished  by  Mr.   Oliver,
for which an explanation will be
forthcoming,  no doubt,   in due'
We may add that we are in-;
formed that Mr. Oliver bought!
at a sale of Colony Farm cattle a
bull at the low price of $35.   We
suppose that  had   this  animal
been "knocked down" to Mr. Ellison at this figure, it would have
been   alleged   that he paid less!
than it was worth.   This would
seem to indicate very clearly that
"scrub" stock was not so uncommon  among  the Colony   Farm
herd as some people would have
us believe.—Vernon News.

Since coming to Canada last
October, Mr. F. W. Stobart,
Purchasing Commissioner for the
British War Office, has placed
255 contracts, with an aggregate
value of $80,000,000. Of this sum
(says the Toronto Mail and Empire) only $765,000 went to the
United States for goods which
could not be got here, more than
nine-tenths of the expenditures
thus being made within the
Dominion and going to keep Canadian workmen and Canadian
capital employed. An inventory
of Mr. Stobart's purchases ir-
cludes sheep-lined coats, sweater
coats, wool vests, wool and cotton
drawers, wool and leather mitts,
socks, cap comfortings, flannel
shirts, cholera bands, rubber
boots, boot laces, buttons, leather
accoutrements, packs and haversacks, binoculars, razors, shaving
brushes, mess tins, clasp knives,
halters, railroad ties, posts and
pegs, shovels, and pick handles.
In addition, Colonel Rarton has
spent $5,000,000 here for greatcoats, jackets, and trousers for
the British Armies.
Havana, April 6.-Jack Johnson, exile from his own country,
yesterday lost his claim to fistic
fame as the heavyweight champion of the world, the title being
wrested from him hy Jess Willard, tbe Kansas cowboy, the
biggest man that ever entered
the prize ring and a "white
hope" who at last, has made
| good.
On Wednesday Johnson and
j his wife and a little group of
j friends will sail for Martinique,
! there to await passage back to
j France, where Johnson proposes
[to settle down and lead the life
jof a farmer, raising pigs and
chickens. There is no doubt that
he is through with the ring.
Willard, who is being acclaimed as the new champion, is going
back to the United Siates to win
the fortune which was denied
him yesterday when Johnson got
$30,000 before the fight started,
Willard taking only a small share
of the net receipts. Just what
his share was is not known.
Yesterday's fight probably has
no parallel in the history of ring
battles. For twenty rounds
Johnson punched and punched
Willard at will, but his blows
grew perceptibly less powerful
as the fight progressed, until at
last he seemad unable or unwilling to go on.
Johnson stopped leading and
for three or four rounds the battle between the two big men was
little more than a series of plastic poses of white and black
So it was until the 25th round
when Willard got one of his
wickedly swinging windmill right
hand blows to Johnson's heart.
This was the beginning of the
When the round closed Johnson sent word to his wife that he
was all in and told her to start
for home. She was on the way
out and was passing the ring in
the twenty-sixth round when a
stinging left to the body and a
cyclonic right to the jaw caused
Johnson to crumble on the floor
of the ring, where he lay partly
outside the ropes until the referee counted ten and held up Willard's hand in token of his newly
won laurels.
There was much discussion after the fight — and probably will
be for all time - - among the followers of the fighting game as to
whether Johnson was really
knocked out. In the sense of being smashed into unconsciousness, he certainly was not put
out. The consensus of opinion is
that Johnson expected and knew
that there was no possibility of
his winning; so when knocked
down, he chose to take the count
rather than rise and stand further punishment. He has often
stated that fighting is a business
and he would not foolishly submit to repeated knockdowns
when he found he had met his
master. A second or two after
Jack Welsh, the referee, had
counted ten, Johnson quickly got
up, It was well that he did, for
a moment later a rush of spectators to the fighting platform all
but smothered the pugilists.
The fight was a clean one. No
match between heavyweights
that has gone to a finish was
cleaner or less brutal.

The statement of Mr. Bowser

Therefore, the joy of prohibitionists at recent successes in the
