City Council in
Regular Session.
Grant of $100 Made to Agricultural Exhibition—Refuse Rebate for Street Improvements.
The regular meeting of the
city council was held Monday
evening, Aid. Livingstone being
the only absentee member.
The weekly accounts were
passed in committee and the
lump sum passed in open council.
F. B. Hood, treasurer of the
Fort George Agricultural Associ-
• ation, addressed the board asking
for a grant of $100 for the Fair
to be held here September 14 and
15. Mr. Hood, in a brief address
spoke of the importance of the
agricultural interests to the city's
welfare, and thought that everything possible should be done to
encourage the farmers here.
Mayor Gillett and the aldermen
agreed with Mr. Hood and the
request was granted.
Aid. Eagel informally introduced the question of a possible
amalgamation of the Prince
(leorge Chamber of Commerce
and the Fort George Board of
Trade. The latter body was desirous of taking rooms in the
city hall. He asked Mr. Hood's
opinion of the merger. Mr. Hood
was inclined to the belief that
public sentiment in the city was
apposed to the idea. He did not
think the business men as a
whole were friendly to the Fort
George organization. It had been
used in the promotion of lot sales
in the western subdivisions and
he thought its record would be a
detriment. Mayor tlillett, speaking as a member of the organization, believed that the members
would be in favor of changing
the name to the Prince George
Board of Trade. No definite action could of course be taken at
the council meeting, and discussion closed with the understanding that members of both bodies
be interviewed with a view to
some sort of amalgamation.
The bridge over the Fraser
River came up for discussion. A
resolution moved by Aid. Lambert and seconded by Aid. Eagel
was unanimously carried that the
council communicate with the
government and the Grand Trunk
Pacilic to the end that their differences might be settled and the
traffic portion of the bridge be
opened to the public.
City Scavenger Cashman appeared before the council to make
a report on the work of his department. He asked that the
public be excluded from the
meeting as he had a few names
to mention in connection with the
fee-collecting portion of his
labors. The council thereupon
agreed to give him a hearing at
the close of the regular business.
Mayor Gillett gave a short informal talk upon the necessity of
passing the city bylaws, and
stated that anyone who opposed
these measures had not the good
welfare of the city at heart. He
wanted all the aldermen to be
present at the public meeting on
Thursday evening and address
the people on the question.
Aid. Ruggies, representative
of the Prince George Investment
and Development Co,, asked-the
council to refund $600 from the
taxes of his company for street
improvements paid for previous
to incorporation. The company's
taxes for the current year amount
to over $4,000, and they were
prepared to pay them in full
provided this refund was made.
The council considered that
such action would be establishing
a precedent that would involve
them in endless trouble, 'lhe
Grand Trunk, for instance, spent
$15,000, on George Street improvements ; Mr. Millar also had
an outlay of several thousands,
and  while the city   needed the
Many Inquiries
For B. C. Timber.
Victoria, Aug. 12.—The Department of Lands is receiving
frequent enquiries in connection
with the development of the coast
lumber export trade, and it would
appear that increased attention
is being paid to the securing of
mill sites and timber along the
northern seaboard. The information circulated under instructions from the minister of lands
for the guidance of manufacturers both in the interior and on
the coast has aroused much interest.
Trade inquiries from importers
in the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, California, and
other markets have been circulated among the mills, and good
results are hoped for.
Pioneer Merchant
Leaving For North.
3\ B. Lambert, the pioneer
merchant of Prince George, and
who erected the first business
place on George Street, will leave
in about ten days for the Grande
Prairie country, where he will
conduct a mercantile business in
connection with a farm he owns
Mr. Lambert has been prominent in business and public life
of Prince George and was elected
in May last one of the city's first
aldermen. In the departure of

Locol Surveyor Is
Peace River Enthusiast.
F. P. Burden. P.L.S., who returned last week from the Peace
River country, is enthusiastic
over the wonderful possibilities
of that great region. Though
practically uninhabited and with
only small patches under cultivation, Mr, Burden saw enough
evidences of the wonderful fertility of the soil to make him a
booster for the greater hinterland
to the north. Ab. White and Bob
Wood, two well-known old-timers
here, are both located on the land
up north and doing well. Mr.
White has a homestead just a
mile distant from a railway station on the new line being built
from Edmonton. He is breaking
up considerable land this year
and is well satisfied with the outlook. Bob Wood is located at the
foot of Mt. Selwyn in a picturesque valley. He has a promising mineral claim near the group
now being prospected by Mr.
Featherstonhaugh and party.
Mr. Burden states that the Mt.
Selwyn claims are splendid prospects of free-milling ore.
Recruits For the Harvest Fields
Ottawa, August 9.—It is expected here that a considerable
number of the troops now stationed at the various camps
throughout Canada will take advantage of the permission granted by the militia department to
non - commissioned officers and
men to take a month's furlough
in the harvest fields. Under the
provision such men who are of
good character will have their
return fare paid to any locality
not exceeding 300 miles from the
camp in which they are located.
They will wear their working
suits during the period of furlough, and their militia pay will
be withheld until their return,
when it will be given to them
upon production of a certificate
showing that they have had
bona-fide employment in the

Quesnel, where more recruits
are waing, the augmented party
proceeding direct to Vernon.
"An idea exists here that men
joining the 54th would be sent
to a different camp from those
who enlisted here some weeks
ago," said Lieut. Bentlev today.
"This is a mistake, as the quarters of the 62nd and 54th are adjoining."
The Herald was told by the recruiting officer that drafts to fill
out overseas regiments are constantly being made from the
Vernon camp. Hundreds of men
who had been in training for only
six or seven weeks had been sent
to England to complete their
training, and their vacancies in
the Vernon regiments filled as
rapidly as possible.
Lieut. Bentley is making his
headquarters at the King George
where he will be pleased to give
all possible information to those
Bylaws Discussed
In Public Meeting.
A meagre turnout of ratepayers attended the meeting last
evening in the Rex Theatre
called by the mayor to discuss
the money bylaws to be voted on
tomorrow. Aid. Ellis was chairman of the gathering and speeches in favor of the measures were
delivered by Mayor Gillett, Aid.
Eagel and City Solicitor Wilson.
The only opponent of the bylaws
who turned up to speak was Mr.
Williams, a visitor from Vancouver and an extensive owner
of city property.
Space forbids a resume of all
that was said by the the different
speakers. The point, however,
that each of the sponsors for the
bylaws sought to emphasize was
the need of the city's unemployed. If certain or all of the bylaws were passed the working
population would be benefitted.
There was little enthusiasm in
the audience and many left before all the arguments had been
Men For Harvest.
Edmonton, August 10.—J, J.
McCormack, superintendent of
the City Employment Bureau,
states that up to the present
there appears to be no shortage

north country and the west looking for work, 150 coming in on

Wins Promotion.
D. A. Matthews, who left here
with the recruits for Vernon a
few weeks ago, has been appointed assistant paymaster for the

stores, Mr. Matthews states that
all the Prince George boys are in
the best of health and spirits and
are looking forward to the time
when they will get a crack at
Kaiser Bill's minions.
Iron Duke is
Needed Today.
London, August 9.-It is a fact
that everything has not been
working quite smoothly between
the French and British in the
west. It was perhaps in connection with this matter that Lord
Kitchener and Mr. Asquith recently went across the channel.
There is some talk of possible
changes in the personnel on our
s|de. A more Spartan regime is
perhaps desirable there. We
want an Iron Duke to look after
our affairs at the front. This is
the I-ondon gossip, and there is
undoubtedly something in it.
There have also been diplomatic exchanges between London
and Paris on a suggestion from
General Joffre that we should
extend our lines to the south.
Our reply was a suggestion that
our extension might more appro
priately be towards the north and
the channel. But the matter was
amicably settled, and the force
of the French contention admitted, when it was pointed out that
another German thrust might be
made at Calais, and that the
French government and commander-in-chief might be placed in
an invidious position if the defence of so vital a French position were left entirely to alien
There is obviously sound sense
in this, and General Joffre has
had his way, as usual and right.

money they could not grant the
request until the people had voted
in favor of it.
Norman Taber, running the fastest mile ever made by man.
This record of 4.12 and 2-5 breaks the record of 4.12 and 3-4 made
twenty-nine years ago by W. G. George. Taber's performance is
regarded as the most remarkable athletic feat of the decade.
London, Aug. 11.—Recognition of
the imperative importance to the allies of forcing the Dardanelles, as the
shortest road to retrieving the Russian reverse and regaining the initiative now in thc hands of Germany, is
demonstrated amply by the sudden
landing of British forces in the vicin^
ity of Karachali, on the north of the
Gulf of Soros and resumption of the
offensive both nt thc southern end of
the Gallipoli peninsula and north of
Gaba Tepe.
The Australians and New Zealand-
ers recently have been strengthening
their positions at Gnba Tepe. The
new landing place on the Gulf of Sar-
os, being on the flank and rear of the
Bulair lines, if developed would menace the strong Turkish defences across
the neck of the peninsula. Coming at
this time when there is so much discussion whether Germany will attempt
to crush Serbia preparatory to linking forces with Turkey by way of Bulgaria, these developments at the Dardanelles assume a special importance.
As yet there is no proof that the
Germans have withdrawn or are preparing to withdraw any considerable
proportion of their forces from the
eastern front. On the contrary, thc
offensive which led to the fall of Warsaw has not been relaxed and the position of the retiring Russians still is

festo issued by a group of German
professors and intellectuals, enumerating their ideas of the only acceptable
peace terms. These, according to the
manifesto, must insure the free expansion of German culture, industry and
commerce. Belgium, for military and
commercial purposes, must be subject
to Germany. France must cede to
Germany nil the territory north of a
line from Bclfort to the mouth of the
river Romme and pay a large indemnity. Russia must cede Poland and
the greater part of the Baltic provinces and others in lieu of indemnity
which she could not pay.
Turks Acknowledge the
Landing of Allied Troops.
Constantinople, Aug. 11, via Berlin,
Aug. 11, by wireless to Sayville.—En-
ver Pasha, the Turkish minister of
war, declared today that, according to
his information, the entente allies in
their latest operations at the Darda
nelles had landed three divisions of
troops, comprising about 50,000 men.
The losses among them, however, he
asserted, already had been very heavy.
Enver Pasha's statement was made
in an interview with a correspondent
of the Associated Press. The Turkish
war minister said:
"I nm fully confident that we will be
able to keep the allies in chock on the
Gallipoli peninsula even if other large
reinforcements are coming. We know
that the allies' action of two duys ago
was due and we prepared for it with
the result that we were not caught
"According to my information the
allies landed three divisions, about 50,-
000 men. No doubt part of them no
longer count, considering the heavy
losses they sustained in attacks incident to the new offensive. The allied
losses have been very heavy so far in
this new attempt to force the Dardanelles."
Pope Will Make
New Appeal For Peace.
Rome, Aug. 10.—Pope Benedict has
determined to make a new appeal for
peace, according to the newspaper
Roma, which declares the pontiff is resolved to use every means within his
power to bring about the desired re-
ult. He will ask the help of the episcopate, and the newspaper asserts, is
even considering the convocation of a
universal council of the church at
The Roma, which does not give its
authority, asserts lhat it has been informed that the pope will forbid all
representatives of the church in belligerent countries, under pain of excommunication, from offering prayers of
victory, from asking blessings for the
combatants, or even administering the
sacraments to those responsible for a
continuation of the war. The same
newspaper claims to have information
to the effect that thc pope has made a
personal appeal to the president of the
United States, the presidents of Switzerland and of the Central and South
American republics, as well as to the
king of Spain and Scandinavian countries asking to join with him in an effort to obtain at least a truce preparatory to the opening of peace negotiations.

New York Receives
Big Sum in Gold.
New York, Aug. 11.—One million
and fifty thousand ounces of United
States coin, valued at $19,534,200, consigned in England to J. P. Morgan &
Co., and brought across the Atlantic
by a British warship, reached the end
->f its long journey today at the United
States sub-treasury here after it had
been carried in twenty-five motor
trucks three miles through the streets
under heavy police guard. The utmost
secrecy marked the shipment of the
ejold from England to an Atlantic port,
its arrival there and shipment by rail
lo New York.
The Morgan firm declined to make
any statement regarding the value or
e-haracter of securities which accompanied the gold. It was rumored in
Wall street that the gold and securities totalled between $.10,000,000 and
$50,000,000. It was generally stated
that thc securities were chiefly American railway bonds and preferred
shares of American railroad stocks.
A heavy guard of uniformed police
met the special train which carried the
'told and securities into New York.
The shipment was made in 700 boxes,
und these were loaded on to 25 motor
trucks. A squad of mounted police
rode beside the trucks on the trip
from the railroad station to the sub-
treasury, a uniformed policeman sitting beside each chauffeur and four
armed guards sitting on top of the
boxes of each truck.
Crowds lined the streets as the
trucks passed and a throng watched

Camp Hughes, Man., Aug. 11.—Instructions have been received from
Ottnwu for thc despatch of further reinforcements. Two hundred and fifty
will be drawn from each infantry battalion and fifty from monnted rifle
regiments, with the usual proportion
of officers. This order will apply to
all mobilized units. A similar draft
ni reinforcements will be despatched
monthly. No definite date has been
stated for the first draft, but the men
have been selected and are holding
themselves in readiness.
Canadian Gunners are
Expert Marksmen
Montreal, Aug. 11.—"Canadian artillery has several times been mentioned in official despatches, but the
consistently good work it has been doing beyond the Canadian division has
never been given full praise. There is
only one fault to be found and this
fault' is that there is not enough
of it."
The foregoing is part of a despatch
from a London correspondent of the
Star.   Continuing, he said:
"The batteries from the Dominion
have worked alongside British and
French partners in preludes to allied
infantry attacks and both units have
praised them in no uncertain terms.
The French officers, in particular those
who have been in command of the
Seventy-fives, have often become en-
.husiastic at some of the hits the Can-
ulians have registered.

FRIDAY,   AUGUST  13TH,   1915.
We are all agreed that the
settlers living east of the Fraser
river are badly in need of bridge
facilities to enable them to brirg
their produce to the city. At
present they are using the government ferry, but this makes a
roundabout route for most of
them, and with the frosts of
winter approaching, even this
facility will be denied them.
There are weeks in the year when
the only means of crossing is by j
canoe, and this, it must bead-;
mitted, is an extremely danger-
The second longest bridge in
the province spans the river at
the point best suited tothe needs
of the public, and it is a remarkable fact that though vehiclular
traffic is provided for on this immense structure, not a foot passenger or horse-drawn conveyance have so far been allowed to
use the bridge. A watchman,
always on duty, gives a stern
• ack up . ignal to any approaching equestrian or foot traveller.
The explanation is this : When
the Grand Trunk Pacific located
their line over that point on the
river   where   the   bridge  now
stands, an agreement was entered into between the provincial
government and the railway
company by which the cost of the
structure was to be met by both
parties to the agreement.   The
cost of the bridge was arrived at
and the government made provision in the estimate for their
share of the cost.   Later, and
without consulting the provincial
authorities, the railway company:
changed   their   plans   for  the
bridge, increasing the cost of the
structure enormously. A bill was
rendered the government for a
proportionate share of the increased cost, which they promptly and very properly refused to
pay,   Thereupon ensued a deadlock, the railway company refusing to allow anyone to cross
the bridge until the government
surrendered to their demands.
'lhe government has repeatedly sought to arrive at a compromise with the railway people,
but so far without success.
iMeanwhile the public suffers,
macninery and strongholds are
necessary, These have now been
supplied in a great measure and
the British and French commanders have settled down to a long
siege, certain they can hold their
lines and gain a little ground
from time to time. But the object they have in view is not to
drive the Germans out of this or
that village or city so much as to
inflict losses on his personnel—
losses which as time goes|jn will
become irreplaceable. Then when
the Allies' superiority in men and
artillery is supreme the great
advance will begin.
If this is a true indication of
the future progress of the war,
we must resign ourselves to patience. Time is the best general
on our side and we must be content to accept his leadership.

With the fall of Warsaw a fact
and the possibility of heavy transfers of German troops to the
west growing daily, the question
of a combined French and British
offensive becomes uppermost in
our mind, says an exchange. Was
an offensive really contemplated
for this summer? Did Lord Kitchener hope to drive the Germans
out of France and back to the
Rhine before winter saw them
again locked in trench warfare
from the Yser to the Vosges? Is
it true what the Germans contend that the great offensive
We cannot answer these questions as we would wish. Lord
Kitchener keeps his own counsel
and will not move until he is
ready. His record in the Sudan
shows that. But some light is
given us by Lord Haldane, who
may be presumed to know what
he is talking about. He declares
an invasion of Germany can only
come after (lermany's power has
been weakened by a war of at-
citizens need employment just a
little worse than anything else
at present. The electric light
and power company now doing
business in the city are giving
us a good service and just as
cheaply as the city could perform
a like public service especially at
this stage of our development.
We should avoid the inevitable
loss consequent upon the financing of a rival company. Why
not take over the operating company at a valuation to be mutually agreed upon ?

Petrograd, Aug. 9.—The war correspondent of the Novoe Vremya,
writing from the Galician front, reports a case in which the Germans
burned a large number of Russian
wounded, together with the medical
staff attending on them.
For some time (he writes) persistent rumors circulated here which
seemed to me incredible, so terrible
they were. Now I hear on all hands
that those rumors are true, and that
an authentic report has been sent up
to Petrograd. We brought with us a
large number of infectious cases from
the Carpathian mountains and left

Sam Scobie, Weil-Known Cariboo Boy, Relates Experiences of Awful Battle.
The following letter fr6m Sam
Scobie, a Cariboo boy well-known
in Prince George, appears in the
Quesnel Observer. Sam was one
of the first to enlist from Cariboo
having walked from Barkerville
to Tete Jaune on the (!. T. P. as
soon as he learned that recruits
were wanted. He enlisted at
Edmonton with the 101st Fusiliers of that city. The letter is
addressed to J. G. Hutchcroft of
Everything is pretty quiet here the
last three weeks, We are in billets
now, resting up, and believe me the
boys were in sad need of a rest. We
have been out In billet now for about
five davs; three more, and then our
old friends—the trenches, again. No
doubt you suw in the papers that the
First Battalion was nearly wiped out
at C , France.   Well, I was one of
the lucky ones—came out without a
scratch, except from barbed wire.
Would you like to hear how this attack was pulled off? Well, I will tell
you in as few words and as briefly
as possible. We were marched off one
night about the first week in June.
We marched all night until break of
day, then into billet until night, when
the same program was repeated. The
next day we pulled into a little town
at daybreak, where we rested about
three days. It was there I got news
that the big attack was coming off
on the evening of the 15th. We were
given maps und lectures on the place
on the 14th, when the captain and
his second in command called all the
non-commissioned officers together.
They were two of the finest officers I
have yet met. Well, we went up into
the trenches, about three miles walk,
i and got into the firing line the boys
were holding, and through a periscope
we could look over the ground between our trenches and those of the
Germans. At some points it was
about fifty yards betwoen, and at
others nearly one hundred. Where the
trenches were closest our captain
informed us this was the ground we
had to make the attack over, and
of course we were all anxious to
make all the study possible of the
German wire entanglements and their
trenches. We had about one hundred
and fiftv yards of frontage to take
and hold. I am getting a little ahead
of my story. On our left was »• division of thc British troops. They
were to make the grand assault, and
we were merely protecting their right
flank. After we had our look around
we went back to our billets, waiting
for the time to move up. All this
time, from the morning of the 13th,
our artillery was playing hell with
the German trenches, and our engineers were sapping a mine from our
lines under the German first and
second trenches. We moved up about
4 o'clock on the afternoon of the
15th, all our boys in the best of
spirits. The attack was timed for
(i o'clock. At fifteen minutes to six
ubout five hundred pieces of our artillery opened up on those Germans
You cunnot imagine the noise of
the shells. We lay in dugouts in
front of our filing line until our time
came. The mine was to be exploded
at two minutes to six, and just as
soon ns it went off, before the Germans could collect themselves, twenty-five picked bayonet men and the
same number of bomb-throwers were
over the parapet and on top of them.
Then went No. 4 Gompany right after
them, then No. 3, next ours, followed
by No. 1. Our bomb-throwers and
bayonet men only hesitated a few
seconds at the first German trench,
then went down their communication
trenches, throwing bombs and blowing those cowardly devils into pieces.
The British division made their attack on time, but were cut to pieces
before they could get near the German trenches. So their ataek failed,
and we were all the Germans had to
contend with. We took three lines of
trenches, but the bunch were getting
pretty well thinned out. Our bombs
ran out, and we were taking ammunition off the deud and wounded. Finally, with one officer left out of
about twenty-five, we got the order to
retire, nnd it was then we got ours.
They just literally cut us to pieces.
1 got hung up at the German barbed
wire just as I was leaving the last
German trench to get back to ours.
As 1 wns getting unhooked my hat
was shot off my head and my rifle
burst in my hand by machine gun
fire, but I managed to get unfasteiir
ed, and away I went from one shell
hole to another, like u rubbit, until
I finally came to our parapet. 1 lay
in a big shell hole and watched the
rest going over. I judged there were
three out of every four got knocked
out at our own trench, the Germans
having a couple of machine guns
trained on this particular place. Well,
I says to myself, I guess I will let
well enough alone, and stay here until dark, and things quiet down a
little. 1 wasn't alone in the hole, as
there were three or four wounded
fellows there, A) I rendered all the
assistance possible by bandaging up
their wounds, until darkness fell. But
the darkness didn't help much, as the
enemy was pretty nervous, and kept
up a rapid fire with the assistance of
their star lights. However, the boys
in our trenches dug a hole in the
parapet, and we got into the trenches that way. The dressing station
was nearly a mile from the trenches,
so we had about twenty stretchers
going all morning. God, some of thei
fellows were in an pwful state The
Germans were using dum-dum and explosive bullets, and when one of them
hits a leg, arm or head, off it goes
"We are at   war?   said   Senator}^ ' I I 11 I I I 1 1 I II ! I I I 1 I I 1 ! [ [( [ ! ! M I I! ! I I ! 1 H I I ! I 111 [ ! 11! I |K#
Lougheed, acting minister of militia, |
in explaining this morning, "and  we
have decided to adopt the same regulations in connection with recruiting
as the British have in force."
In the past the department has
been bombarded with protests from
the wives of men who had joined and
these protests had to be recognized.
As a result of such protests it is estimated that several hundred men who
mobilized at Valcartier were sent
home. The provision was also subject
to many abuses and in a considerable
number of cases men used their wives
as shelter behind whom to excuse
their own desire to leave after having
enlisted. In other cases many have
excused their failure to enlist by the
remark that their wives would not allow them to go and that it was useless
to enlist as their wives would immediately thereafter protest to the authorities and procure their discharge.
Under the new regulation men who
were formerly discharged owing to
the protests of their better halves will,
„..., _ ._„, _.... ...  ■"""•■ w" ■• •"" if they now so desire, be able to offer
There were about eight hundred andiU ',.._,   __._    ,_ lL , .___
fifty of us went into that fight, and
a little over one hundred answered
the roll call next morning. We are
waiting for reinforcements now, and
I guess we won't be doing anything
but trench digging until they come.
Some of the boys are getting passes
back to England for seven days, but
I don't know whether I will be one
of the lucky ones.
How is everybody back there ? Any
more recruiting going on? You
might just mention the fact to some
of those fellows there that there is
themselves again. In the past a minor
between the ages of 18 and 21 required
the consent of his parents before he
could enlist, and if a protest came
from them after he had enlisted his
discharge would be granted. In future, if a man is of military age, 18
to 38, no one can interfere with his
joining the colors.
In the past a man who had enlisted
could, with the consent of his commanding officer, purchase his discharge for the sum of $15. There were
cases where men had joined one day
and the next day recanted. There were
other cases where men who had join-
lots of room for them here in the I ed "tired".f the" discipline enfoVced
ranks, good honorablcp laces, places upon them and desired to get out. ! In
heroes have fallen from.   They might fu^urc' discharge will not be purchas-
1 able and a man once he has joined,
will be there to stay for the duration
of the war. Desertion will be dealt
with by courtmartial.
just as well jump in now as a year
from now, for their time is coming.
We have got to win (his war, win
it at all costs, and believe me the
Huns have still got a big fight left
in them. They made a big attack on
one of our positions the night after
we were relieved, and they got the
daylight cut out of them. They always attack in mass formation, and
we had forty-seven machine guns
trained on them. They had to cross
about one hundred and fifty yards,
and only one German made our barbed wire, and he is lying there yet.
Well, I guess this is all for today.
Did I tell you that our battalion, the
old Edmonton Fusiliers, were all busted up ? We went to reinforce the
First Brigade, and I am in the First
Battalion, what's left of them. I guess
I have two of my younger brothers in
England with the second contingent.
Would like to see them and give them
a little advice. This is a fine country
and we are having great weather at
present. 1 suppose everything is
quiet around that district. Well, I
guess I had better say good-bye. My
address is:
Sergt. S. M. Scobie, No. 18770,

objects. No longer will the parents
of a minor have power to stop him enlisting if he desires, and no longer will
