that he did not know until he saw

The 'British government's decision
to consult the: overseas dominions on
peace terms more nearly affects Australia, New Zealand and South
Africa than it does Canada. This
country's interest in the settlem snt
is chiefly that of a partner in the
Empire concerned with the general
welfare. There are no German colonies in this part of the world, and
what seems best to Britain in the
European realignment .will satisfy
Canadians. Hut it is different with
the other dominions. In addition to
those of the general settlement i.hey
each have b.ecal interests to safeguard, interests in which their de-
eires are expected to have weight
witb the Imperial authorities.
Australia and New Zealand ure concerned to iireveiit the re-establish-
ment of the German Hag m the
Southern l'acihc. Chiefly hy Australian effort, both with warships and
troops, the German colonies in the
Bismarck archipelago, in Samoa, la

The big trouble witb business now

every person—not merely the merchant, hut every person else. It is
the duty of every person who can to

The meeting; in France of tbe various departmental councils are looked
to as the best barometer of public
feeling in the country, and the session recently ended has given much
satisfaction hy its clear indication of
the solidarity of the people. The presidents of all the departments are
entirely united in their view that the
war must be pursued until a wholly
definite result is obtained, that all
political quarrels must be made subservient to nntiobal unity, and that
those responsible for the conduct of
the war must receive ample support,
however long it may be thought necessary  to continue the struggle.
The negotiations between Japen
and China were concluded last week,
and the two treaties, including the
thirteen notes, Bigned in the Chinese
foreign office at Pekin. The discussion of the Japanese demands is thus
terminated until the five articles reserved for future argument are
brought out for consideration. Several alterations were sought, by the
Japanese government. These included
the omission of the words 'south'
and 'eastern' before Manchuria and
Inner Mongolia respectively. The
Chinese representatives adhered to
the term6 of tbe ultimatum, bow-
without losing their stride. Their
shooting, too, is fully on a par with
their marching and running powers.
They carry a modified' form of the j
Mannlicher-Carcano rifle, with which
they are expert. Accustomed to fire
at a running target, since nearly
every member of the Bersaglieri iB a
born hunter, they can hit a mark at
a distance that would leave an^ Austrian trooper puzzled even to see.
: The description that/ a fojmer French
'minister of war applied to tbem as
'disciplined brigands' was by no
:neans inapt though they fight scrupulously fairly, and the code of honor among them is very high.
They possess a dash and an elan
that is' beyond praise, while their
I lack «f the cast-iron discipline of the
barrack square is something to drive
a soldier of the old-fashioned school
almost to despair. Admittedly they
are better when on the offensive than
behind fortifications, and one sees
them at their best in a swift initiative where the bayonet decides.
Long before the recent war in
Northern Africa, the military leaders
of Italy had learnt the value of these
light infantrymen, and their effort
ever Bince has been to increase their
number and to develop their training. Particularly has this been the
case since the outbreak of this war,
nnd Italy has never been so strong
in these troops as now. In pre-war
days the Bersaglieri were divided into three lines, of which the English
equivalent would be, roughly, first
line, reserves, and militia. Since
August, however, the whole of these
three classes have been placed upon
a war footing. The Bersaglieri are
normally divided into ten regiments
of three battalions, roughly about
three thousand bayonets on a war
footing, but many new regiments
have been raised during the past six
months. Every man is picked, and,
even if rejected from this force, is
absorbed into the infantry of the
line. To;eacb regiment a battalion of
cyclists is attached. Actual experiment has shown that a trooper,
picked at haphazard, and without
previous warning, could carry four
bicycles on his shoulders and yet
outpace the swiftest infantry pursuit
that could be sent against him. These
cyclist battalions are especially designed to accompany the Bersaglieri
cavalry in the field. These Italian
cyclists excited the interest of the
late General Sir Charles Douglas,
and he was anxious that a similar
force should be introduced into the
British army.
The'Bersaglieri, it may be added,
is for the most part composed of men
of much better social standing than
the rank and file of the Jtalian army
and they claim, with considerable
juBtice, descent from the famous
army of some 70,000 men that, under
Charles Albert, confronted the armed
might of Austria in 1848 and formed
the backbone of the, Italian army in
the Crimea six years later. Here it
attracted general admiration from
its excellence of organization, equipment, and discipline. Thus it will be
seen that the Bersaglieri iB at once
unique in its establishment and its
training, and is a foe that might well
confront even the Prussian Guard.

war, and made a speech of a slanderous character against that country,
but which so pleased the members
that the House adjourned to next,
day as a mark of complete assent in
his views. The Chancellor criticised
the motices behind Italy's course,
which he imputed to a combination of
mob dictation, bad . faith oa the
cabinet of Premier Salandra, and, to
a certain degree, to the money of

Only those who have seen the Bersaglieri, the vcry flower of the urmy
of Italy, on parade or on their annual manoeuvres can realize the
great military strength tbat lies iu
ethis force. The name literally means
'marksmen,' but those who compose
tin- force are considerably more than
tbis, and it would he difficult to Be-
lect any other corps in a European
army that compares to them. The Alpine troops of the French army are
probably  tbe nearest approach.
It Is no uncommon thing to find
men serving in tbis magnificent body
of light infantry who represent the
third and even the fourth generation
of their family, who have carried the
short rille and worn the familiar
dark green 'smasbtr' hat with its
proud cockade. The strength of this
force cannot be estimated exactly at
tho present moment, but It is pro-
el ably about 100,01)0, including reserves and  partially  trained  men.

Mtlntyre's Grocery
Years ago, when I had occasioa to
study the political \ and strategical
questions which concern Constantinople, I found Sio accounts of the various aspects of the subject more Interesting than those to be found in
Moltke's letters from Turkey and in
bis history of thc Russo-Turkish war
of 182S-9, There have, of course,
been many changes in modes ot warfare and in weapons since Moltke as
u Prussian captain took service with
the Sultan. But his writings about
Turkey are still valuable, and I think
bis account of the Dardanelles an admirable summary of the problem in
siiite of the changes which make it
for practical purposes out of date.
So 1 have translated his letter on
the subject,  and here it is:
•li, tbe evening of the 2nd of April
J left Constantinople in an Austrian
steamer, and next morning caught
sight of the beautiful high hills of
the iBland of Marmora. On the right
could be seen the hills of Rodosto,
with vineyards and villages. Soon
the coast of Europe and Asia drew
nearer together, and Gallipoli appear
id on steep, rugged cliffs, with an
old castle and countless windmills
on the shore. Here the Turks first
crossed into Europe. About noon
Fort Nagara, with its white walls,
arose from the clear blue waters of
the Hellespont.
•This strait is not nearly so beautiful as the Bosphorus, the banks
being bare and much further apart,
but the historical associations make
them attractive. From yonder
strange-looking hill (perhaps piled up
by human hands) Xerxes looked down
on the countless hordes that he was
leading against Greece; the ruined
stones that cover all that flat tongue of land were once Abydos, and
here Leander swam from Europe to
Asia to see Hero. A single shapeless
fragment of stone still stands upright in the place which the city
once occupied, but it is hard to say
what this ruin once was. But it is
i likely enough that the spring of
fresh  watt r,  which  today  bubbles up
a subterranean, vault upon the flat

'For   the defence of   the   Dardanelles
there  are   580  guns,   of   which   t.he  di-
earth, under vaulted doorways, in
the walls of the fort. The largest of
them, weighs as much as fifteen tons,
and takes a charge of 148-ths. powder
Their interior diameter is 2ft. Din.,
bo that a man can creep into them.
Behind each heap of earth a wall of
great squared tones has been built
to stop the recoil, but these walls
are shattered after a few discharges.
The stone, cannon-balls ricochet over
the water from Asia to Europe or
from Europe to Asia, and then roll
a good way further on land. If one of
these balls strikes a ship on the
water-line it is not easy to see how
the hole two and a half feet in dia-
menter can be plugged.
'Some  daring  and  lucky   ent.rpris-
es of thc Kngliah 'at sea have   Bpread
the  idea that     land-batteries cannot
defend     themselves     against    fleets,
which, of course, are lar superior   to
them in number of guns. Such an en-
terprse     was that   of   Lord     Duckworth,  in 1807.     The defences of the
Dardanelles   were   then   in  the most !
lamentable    condition;    the   English \
squadron sailed through  almost   un- '
lesisted, and on the JOth of  February
a hostile fleet for the first time     ap-
jieared    under the walls of the ■ Ottoman capital.
'The less the Turks had ^thought
such an event possible, the greater
was their panic at the first moment.
It is well known that the influence
and energy of the French ambassador
prevented the Divan from agreeing
to all the demands of the English;
batteries sprang up on thc banks of
the Tophane (arsenal) and »of the
Serai, while in rear of the intruders
the Dardanelles were hurriedly put
into a state "St defence. Soon the
British Ambassador himself did not
know what use to make of his admiral's military success. After eight
days Lord Duckworth thought himself lucky to get back to the roadstead of Tenedo, with the loss of
two corvettes and with most of his
other ships badly damaged.
'The ball fired from a ship against
p. land;battery will, in the most favorable case, kill a few men and dismount a gun, while that fired by a
land battery may quite well put a
ship out of action. Men, guns, and
ammunition are incomparably safer
in 'the land battery than behind a
ship's walls. Most important is the
circumstance that the ship's rolling
makes accurate aimin? impossible.
The land ,battcry prescntB a target
about four;and a half feet high, and
a slight little roll increased or diminishes the elevation of the guns to
such an extent* that a whole broadside strikes too high or too low. But
the great gun of a land battery is
still, the gunner takes, an exact aim.
;.nd his tareet is a wall 20 or SO feet
high, a hundred feet long, and vulnerable all over. Balls that go too
low may yet hit hy ricochet, balls
t hat go too high may destroy masts,
spars, and sails. The larger number
of» guns is on the side of the fleet;
the more favorahle conditions on the
side of the land battery.
'Another circumstance    is specially j
nfavorable   to   the passaee  of  ships'
through   the  Dardanelles  to  the   Sea

The Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister
of public works, who has just returned from the, interior, speaks enthusiastically of the improved conditions and of the outlook, suyq the
Victoria Colonist. On Monday evening he was the guest of the Penticton board of trade at the banquet
which was held to commemorate the
completion of the Kettle Valley railway and the opening of a direct connection between the coaBt aud Kootenay. The function proved of memorable importance and interest, not
only in that the attendance hvas very
large and representative, but because
the various speeches reflected a healthy optimism, which has, already
none much to inspire renewed confidence in the future of British Columbia.
"The people of the interior," said
.Mr. Taylor, "are naturally jubilant
tt the fruition of an enterprise
which means so much to that section.
The 275-mile Kettle Valley line is
now a reality after 17 years of waiting for r.iil connection with other
districts over the mountains. The
1 anquet was attended by a number
of men prominent in the development of western Canada, and in their
speeches, they all attached the greatest importance and significance to
the completion of the railway.
"T\ie president of the company, J.
J. Warren, of Toronto, stated that
within another five years the Okanagan Valley would, become one of the
most prosperous sections of Canada.
He took occasion to express his gratitude to Sir Richard McBride, L.W.
Shatford, M.P.P.; John R. Jackson,
M.P.P., and others whose far-Bighted
view of the needs of southern British Columbia and whose assistance in
the project had made the railway
"One of the most important guests
was P.C. Coleman, assistant general
manager of the Canadian Pacific rail- !
way at Winnipeg. Mr. Coleman replied to the toast to the Canadian I
Pacific Railway company. He declared
that the Canadian Pacific railway
was proud of the Kettle Valley line,
and fully appreciated the great efforts that had heen successfully made
by President Warren, Chief F,ngineer
McCulloch, nnd others who had assisted in construction during the
past few years. The Canadian Pacific
railway was filled with invincible optimism, and although here and there
retrenchment had heen made because
of the present unparalleled condi-
tians, the public hnd met this action
on 'the part of the company in the
proper spirit. He alluded to the
share borne by the Canadian Pacific
railway in providing ships for war
purposes and in sietting apart funds
for the dependents of employes who
had gone to the front.
"Mr. Coleman made the gratifying
announcement that there were encouraging signs of a return of prosperity. The prairies, would probably
this year reap the heaviest crop in
their history, and with thc expected
ligh prices would bc in a prosperous
condition this fall. This would,natur-
Mly hnve a beneficial effect on British Columbia."
