One short week from next Thursday morning, at

Columbia, in this twentieth century of christian civilization, the hangman's noose will snuff out the life of

Preparing War
Casualty Lists.
The preparation of casualty
lists is proving to be much more
difficult in this than in former
wars, because battles take place
over such long fronts and are extended over so much time.
In the British Army, as soon
as possible after a battle is ended,
the regiments concerned are paraded, often on the battle-field
itself, and the rolls called by the
Adjutants. The names of those
who do not answer are noted and
sent to the headquarters of the
brigade to which the regiment is
The names of the wounded who
have been sent to hospital by the
Royal Army Medical Corps are
taken and marked off on special
forms. Even if a soldier is so
seriously wounded that he cannot
give details of himself the doctors have no difficulty in discovering them from the identity disc
and badire each soldier carries.
It is from these badges that the
names of the dead are noted and
forwarded to headquarters.
A certain amount of time is
allowed for stagglers to return to
camp before they are reported as
missing and the lists completed,
Tney are then cabled to England
and checked again at the War
Office from the regimental rolls
which are kept there. Then the
lists of dead, wounded, and missing are published.

long as Russia has men able to

This flat promise to Serbia has
been made by the Czar in a telegram to Premier Paschitz of Serbia. A copy of the Czar's message was received yesterday, and
it reads as follows:
"Russia already has a plan to
save Serbia. In no case will
Russia tolerate the disappearance
of Serbia's independence."
Athens.—That British transports landed several allied divisions at Saloniki on Sunday was
announced in an official statement issued here yesterday. A
large quantity of artillery together with armored automobiles were
hurried north.
Special Council
Meeting Held to

A special meeting of the city
council was held in the city hall
yesterday forenoon for the purpose of passing the by-law necessary to enable the city to secure
a $4,000 loan from the Royal
Bank. This by-law was given
three readings, and at another
meeting of the council this morning the measure became law.

Despite the fact that Prince (Jeorge and the Cariboo district in general have sent a large numbe^ of men
to serve the cause of the empire at the front, there are
undoubtedly many more who are in a position to enlist
and who are desirous of doing so. There will never be
a better time than at the present. Lieut. Ualsey is receiving applications every day, and by comnitihicating
with him prospective recruits will be able to join at
once and commence training. The new unit will be
trained here for several months before being sent to
some point on the coast for final instruction. INTERIOR PRINTING COMPANY, LTD,

Riding is Very Enthusiastic Regarding Future of
sation of the war there is no section on the globe which can anticipate a greater development."
In an interview with the Victoria Colonist recently, Mr. J. T.
Robinson, conservative nominee
for this riding for the next federal election, had the following
to say :
"I was very favorably impressed
during my trip through the Cariboo country with the amount of
agricultural development going
on, particularly around Prince
George and Vanderhoof and in
the Nechaco Valley generally.
With the Spring there should be
quite a number of settlers going
in to take un new locations.
"The mining outlook is excellent. At some of the diggings
close to the historic town of
Barkerville, the Guggenheims
have bad three or four drills in
operation for the last year and a
half prospecting old ground whieh
Ided in  the sixties.   It is re-
irted that there investigations
are very promising. 1 was informed that John Hopp and
others who are working placer
deposits in that area have had a
most successful season, the best
on record, in fact. The Wingdam
claims situated midway between
Quesnel ami Barkerville, are a-
gain being operated.
"The immediate future of the
country depends upon the early
completion of the Pacific (ireat
Eastern Railway. It will tap an
immense area, wonderfully rich
in natural #esourcos, which is
now practically dormant. The
people of the coast, cities should
be a unit in urging the early
completion of the line, for the
trade which will (low to the coast
from the development of that
section of the interior is practically incalculable.
"The great interior of tbe
country—referring more particularly to Cariboo is simply waiting for the completion of the
Pacilic Great Eastern Railway,
to llourish exceedingly and give
abundantly of the riches which
are now locked up as a result of
inadequate transportation facilities. Personally, 1 am confident
that millions upon millions of
dollars worth of virgin gold will
be recovered from the placer beds
of Cariboo and other northern
districts, wlien capitalists are
provided with the proper means
of access to the country.
"While in the various centres
of population 1 found things
rather quiet from a business
standpoint, following the cessation of rai 1 w ay construction
work," said Mr. Robinson, "still
the outstanding feature of the
situation is the undiminished faith
felt by everyone in the country
that prosperity and progress are
only postponed. Vou cannot find
