Orders for Dardanelles Countermanded—Takes Course
in Bombs
R., C.E.F.
The following letter from Capt. W.
AV. Foster, .who is now probably Ln
France has been received by T. Kilpatrick:
August 24, 1915
2nd Regt. 0. M
Caesar's Camp,
Dear Mr.   Kilpatrick:
After several weeks very severe
training, a matter of 5 to 5 and often night work as well, we are in
shape for the final act in France. For
some time of course after arrival it
was the intention to send us to the
Dardanelles, mounted—hut the release of troops in South Africa suitable for the Mediterranean, and the
changed conditions on the continent
resulted in our brigade being attached to, the second division ns a dismounted unit, and we expect from
■what General Hughes told us at our
last inspection to be In France possibly before you receive this letter.
We have had several inspections,
the last before Princess Alexandra of
Teck, and as with casualties ready
to return, the balance of the flrst di-
Vislon reinforcements, and the whole
of the second division there nre over
35,(WW Canadian troops at Shorn-
clitfe, you may imagine it is a most
■Impressive sight to see them on par-
nde. In a few days the final inspection before th,' King ami Kitchener
"will take place.
Our particular brigade is camped
just below Caesar's Hill on the summit of which the ..Ml Roman camp
with attendant entrenchments is still
in perfect condition. T enclose a photo of our camp looking north. South
of us about > mile away is Folk-
stone,  an.l  7  miles  north  west  Dover.
Air craft of all kinds constantly
overhead, th.' vessels at sea. soldiers and sailors—English, Canadian.
French. Belgian, on shore—with tbe
town itself full of refugees, all unite
to make the vicinity full of Interest.
Zeppelin raids in the vicinity—of
which of coarse no report in tlie press
ns thi' Information might be useful to
the enemy—together with occasional
firing at Bea have drawn attention to
the more scri..,is Bide of the excitement provided.
Personally   1   have   been   very    busy
on grenade work—after volunteering
for a special course in bombs—a fas-
clnattng as well as an essential
branch in this war. being deputed as
instructor to the bai ince, so have
been  kejit  har.l at work.

The city council which on Wednesduy evening at a special meeting had
decided to hold a tax sale reversed
its decision at another special meeting held on .Monday afternoon. No
tax. sale will be held tbis year for the
taxes now in arrears for UU, hut a
uew method of collecting the delinquent taxes will be adopted. A resolution wus passed that a list of delinquent taxes be given to the city
solicitor with instructions to recover
hy ordinary process of law.
Tbe new scheme was proposed by
Mayor Foote. lt was supported by
Aid. Smythe, who bus been strongly
opposed to a tax sale, and was also
supported by Aids. Bell and Masson,
who had supported the tax sale. Aid.
Bourne opposed thc new scheme which
he held was at least as objectionable
as a tax sale, to which he had been
opposed. Aid. Mackenrot, who bad
supported a tux sale, stood to his
guns aud voted against the new proposal, holding that a tax sale was
the only businesslike method. Aid.
McSorley was absent. Vi. U. Pratt,
manager of the Molson's Rank and
Vi. li. Farris, city solicitor, attended
the meeting.
ami. smythe at the commencement
of tbc meeting moved that the couucil co into committee so that, the
press could be excluded. He did not
want anything published.
None of the other aldermen agreed
with Aid. Smythe that the tax discussion should he kept secret and his
motion  was not seconded.
His Worship i'i re-introducing the
tax sale question said that he had
been in favor of a tax sale to tbe extent of keeping the promise made to
the lank. Otherwise he was opposed
to a tax sale. As a result of tbe
sale last year property to the " extent of $1101.55 revelled to the city.
The same thing would happen this
year. A sale would cut oil revenue
and was not the right way fe.r tli"
city to collect.
The mayor mentioned five eases in
which      taxpayers  had  promised      to
make some arrangement to pay part
.f the l.»i:: taxes. Me said that the
city could recover the taxes in certain Instances by an order of the
court and that it Would be more business like. It would prevent property
owners from letting their property revert   to   the   city,   as   the  city      could
obtain a judgment against them
which would stand against all property they possessed.
Aid. Bel] wanted to know if tbe
mayor intended thai those in arrears
should be sued.
The mayor thought thnt in most
cases legal action would not  bi
i -sary   <as   the   taxes   would   be      paid.

A proposal to endeavor to secure a

was brought up by the mayor nnd a
resolution was passed that the board
of trade be requested to ask the government to establish a camp during
the winter, that the city ofler

The British investor, whose view of
conditions is world wide, has evidently not allowed the temporary depression caused by the war to shake his
faith in the future of Canada. ln
Great Britain an early revival of
business conditions in Canada is regarded as Inevitable. The recent report of the annual meeting of the
British Canadian and General Investment company, held in London, Kngland, contains the following paragraph:
"The latest reports we have
received from Canada indicate
that conditions '.there are improving, and if the present promise of
a magnificent harvest vis fultilled,
there will be a considerable revival in activity. Nothing can, 1
think, in the long run, keep back
a country which is capable'of producing in such vast quantities the
things necessary to man's existence, the value of which this war
has brought home very vividly to
all of us, and may.I also say, a
country which is peopled by such
men as those whose self-sacrifice
and bravery we recognize and admire so greatly today."
When the financiers of Great Britain are thus confident of Canada's
future, Canadians have little excuse
for giving way to pessimism.
"The worst is over and good times
are gradually returning to western
i 'anada. It will be a gradual growth,
but I am confident that it is coming.
The east was the first to feel the
hard times and naturally the east
was tirst to feel the return <if prosperity. But better times are coming
I it    the    west.    This ts too great      a
country t.. remain depressed very

were by no means free from peril.
He had much public business of many
kinds to transact with the members
of the British government. He spent
some time iii visiting the Canadian
troops in the trenches, as well as in
hospitals and camps, aud, in both
England and France, most arduous of
all to one of his temperament was tho
round of social duties, and the making of more or less otlicial speeches.
His last mentioned task was made all
the more dillieultiby the fact that be

something indiscreet or misleading.

polling it to travel end on, and constantly offer a minimal resistance to
the air. Unfortunately, the whole of
the kinetic energy of the gases is not
transferred to the bullet, for at the
instant the latter leaves the muzzle
there is a tremendous rush of gases
past it.
This 'muzzle blast' is an annoying
thorn in the side of the ballistician,
since, apart from the waste of energy, there is a tendency for those, gases, with a higher muzzle velocity
grain is threshing out 32 than that of the bullet, to shove the
the acre, and the yield of base of the latter out of line, and so
cause the bullet to topple over. Even
so, this could not occur were it not
for the fact that it is impossible to
make the muzzle of a rifle and tbe
base of a bullet so accurate tbat the
latter leaves the former simultaneously at all points, and it is the
inevitable slight asymmetrical relationship between these parts that
causes the initial tilting which the
muzzle blast accentuates. Elongated
bullets fired from a smooth bore are
found to be traveling side on at • a
distance of but 2 ft. in consequence
of this muzzle blast; hence the necessity in these long bullets of a very
rapid spin. However, despite this
rapid spin the bullet still wobbles a
little at the beginning of its flight,
a fact which throws light on the aggravated traumatic effects occasionally seen after close range firing.
