in sentencing defendants Mr. Justice Macdonald sai.l that they ha 1
occupied positions if trust, It was
painful to see an Intelligent i ody of

was charged witb conspiracy to defraud the Canadian Pacific railway.
0, B, McCarter appeared tor the
Crown und C.E. Gillan for tbe de
fence.
W, Grei nlie. i Ime keeper at Rogers
Pass at the time of tbe alleged conspiracy was the first witness. He
swore that the defendant, Mikes, was
bookkeeper for the Greek gang. Olaf
Johnson was foreman, Mikes told hint
he would attend to getting tho money
if witn ss w luld pul bogus names
in the time book. He told bim that
It, I love, the roadmaster, was In on
the scheme. Witness made up the
time boo'l and fohnson signed it-
Six bogus names were added in December, Th" names were supplie.l hy
the accused, Mil es gave bim $93 as
his share. He said he gave ■■" to impersonators of the bogus names. On
the February payroll Mikes got the
proceeds from two bogus names.
To Mr. Gillan witness denied that
be bad been Implicated i'i frauds previous to December 1912, From the
flrst fraud 1433 bad hen obtained.
Johnson got ¥101, Hove $110, Mikes
■I'm and witness ■-':;. He confessed
when oi est, ,1. He told the truth because In' was told that the others put
all the blame on himself. Mikes came
to him .is an emissary from Johnson
proposing the fraud.
To Mr. M.i ait'i' he sa.il that he
hail in ule restitution so far as he
Could. He h.i turned o\er 6250 and
he bad l"st his land in the United
States becau he could not keep up
the payments.
II P, Wunderllng, inspector of the
department of investigation of the
i ina Ian Pacific railway product I i be
payrolls, R.J. Sprott gave expert
evidenci regarding hand writing connecting defendant with signatures on
the bogus ch'nies, Olaf Johnson also
Bpoke as to Mikes' haul writing. He
bad nev r received money, he swore,
from Mikes as a result of the padded
payrolls. He did not know whether
Mikes was in the deal or not. Forbes

aike-'  hand  writing.
Mr. Gillan claimed Mi.it there was
no i■■' " against defendant, Johnson
and Forbes said that they had not
discussed the fraud with him, Greenlie was the ,,iy one that implicated
defendant. His evidence was not suf-
fiCiently corroborated.
His lordship pointed out that the
evidence of accomplices would not be
sufficient to convict in'ess corroborated. The main stories of Greenlie
and Johnson shewed no contradiction. The ovidei.ee of Forbes was another link. Brown, who was not an
accomplice in this case, said that
Mikes was in on the deal. He believed Brown, whose evidence made
that of Sprott admissible. Sprott

SOUDAN  OPASS.-A PROLIFIC
VARIETY
To the Editor of the Mail-Herald.
Sir,—The great merits ol this wonderful plant deserve to be more
widely known as all those who bave
tried it eulogise it greatly. It is a
native of North Africa, as its name
denotes, and hus been grown in Am
i rica for some time past with tue
most satisfactory results. It is a
tall, annual grass, growing from
aft to Id ft. high, with leafy, erect
stems, which frequently number 10U
to thc stool. It produces about three
tons, or more per acre, of nutritious
fodder, twice in a season, and can bc
pastured in w.liter. The grass cures
easily, and makes hay of. excellent
i.aality, which is readily eaten, by all
• lasses of stoc'.c. It is very drought
!• sisting and will succeed wherever
Borghum can be grown, and also in
many places where other grasses ale
difficult to establish. A prominent
American ofticial says "No other crop

I Subject—"The    best    story suggested

I   The Women's Canadian club held a
Christmas   Stocking   party      al,      the
home of Mrs. CH. lliuiie on November 26, Socks, tobacco, cigarettes,

At the request of the Women's Canadian club of Ottawa wc decided to
co-operate with them In celebrating
King Albert's birthday, April X, by
holding a 'tag-day' for the Belgian
relief,  from which we realized  $PJ(K(IU.
On 'April '.i, ithe Belgian relief boxes
were opened and found to contain
.Ni2.7'tt which amount was Immediately
sent to Mr. Whitehead, the Belgian
consul at Vancouver for Belgian re
lief,
Al all the gatherings of the iiuh,
we  have   been assisted and  entertained
liy musicians, vocal and Instrumental
and  to  them   is due our   warm  thanks
and appreciation.
The institution of a sick and visiting committee has proved a great
success, as many of our members can
testify.
Aill Important phase of the year's
work was the revision of one sec.
tion of the constitution, also the
change in the number of the nnniin
atlon committee and tbe added pri
vilege of each member to bring in us
many new members as possible Instead of two as In fore.
The saddest event in our club year
wus the sudden death of Mrs. Ken
ncdy, who had been our secretary
since the club was started and who
always took a most keen and prncti
eai interest in its welfare, A fitting
tribute to our love and sympathy
was arranged by the Bending of How
ers and by the attendance ,,f the club
iii a  body  at her  funeral,
I think this ".includes the resume
of our work for the year, or rattier 1
should say of some of the results of
our Work for of necessity much has
been done for which there is nothing
to show.
I am afraid my report is very inaccurate and Incomplete because as
you know, I was unable to attend all
the meetings and then I o ily too*
over the secretary's work in 1'efiru
ary.
'that our club ;s a recognized factor in the community is t;,uitc evident: by the number of appeals made
for its assist.nice and support. Its
scope and Influenoe nre being felt und
will be felt more deeply and general
ly as time goes on.
During the year, we have had much
kindness and ready help fiom those
outside the club, and from tbe press
wo huve received most courteous consideration  and   generous  assistance.
Your executive have always done

Italy and Roumania
HOW THEY STAND
TOWARDS AUSTRIA
(Tho 'Morning l'ost,' London)
What do Italy and Kouiiiania claim
in this wur? And why huve they
hesitated so long?
Roumania claims sonic 20,000 square
miles of land inhabitated by the oldest Roumanian stock, i.e., Transylvania; it is a land of gently rising hills,
with extensive meadows, well adapted
lor sheep farming, The unuexution of
Transylvania will not strengthen tho
Kingdom economically; iu tho wbolo
province there is neither petroleum
nor corn, no navigable river, and not.
ono canal; the woods ure to bo found
in tho Carpathians; there is no
town larger than our Canterbury and
manufactures    of   any   kind do not
exist.   The   wur  of   liberation    will  be
undertaken for purely popular, sonti-
inentnl   reasons;      but  the  Strategical
position of the Kingdom will benefit
enormously.
Frontier Conditions.
Tho Dual Monarchy drives a groat
wedge towards the east, pressing
/both on Walachla and.Moldavia, prae
tlcally cleuvlng tbc small kingdom In
to two parts, Tbe Carpathians do noi
protect Roumania; tbey form a
mighty wall rising more steeply on
the Roumanian than on the Hungarian slope. From the plain of Bucharest the railway rises slowly over
three thousand feet to the Predeal
Pass; from Kronstadt, In Hungary, it
rises less than two thousand. On thc
whole, thf mountains form a naturally fortiticd platform for the Hungarians,
In these days the position is the
following' The Austro-Hungarlan
troops at the Predoal are within, SO
miles of Bucharest, while the Roumanian troops facing them are still
£30 miles as the crow dies from
Uudnpest and 460 miles from Vienna.
At the next pass (Rother Tliiirm
Pass) the position is equally unfavorable for the Roumanians, while at
thc Iron Gate, where the Danube cuts
its wuy throuch the Carpathians (or
Transylvanlan Alps), the chances will
be equal for both parties.
In the equipment of tho armies tho
Hungarians are better provided than
their opponents; until quite recently
they had better artillery, especially
ns regards those Austrian mountain
mortars whioh did such good work in
tbe Ardennes.  Thc Austrian  infantry
is more accustomed to'mountain warfare; arriving from the great snow
Slopes of tbe Alps, they are adepts
with the ''skis,' second only to the
French 'chasseurs des Alpes' and perhaps to the Itullun 'Alpini.' For the
Carpathians this is particularly Important; on tho southern (Roumanian) slopes the snow is deeper and the
snow-line lower thun on the dry. northern slopes; no Infantry «( the world
—least of all, the men from the lowlands of the Danube—can wudo
through miles of snow, 'sinking ut
every stop three, four or five feet.
The Predeal I'uss Is still now (beginning of March) wrapped iu its
winter clouk, ub also the higher slopes near by: tho great, pine-elnd hills
of some six thousand* feet, Here all Is
favorable to the Austrian: invisible in
thoir white jerseys, swooping down--
at break-neck speed, they run advance, manoeuvre, and oultlank the
Roumanians without, difficulty; in the
blinding white of the snowy background, no scout, no airman, no B|iy
can dotoot them. That is whnt. is
meant when Roumanian politicians

The  ienl      Trentino     ends   nt   Iiozon

Inhabitants of Teutonic extraction.
They are mostly tho descendants of
the Bajuvarl (forefathers of the
Bavarians) and perhaps of the Blast
(ioths, who retreated into thoso Alps
nfter their defeat on the slopes of
Vesuvius, where their Inst kings
fought and fell. Whatever the origin
of these South Tyrolese, certainly the
fusion of German und old Roman .■provincials (Ladlns or Rhaetl) produced
the linest race of the Alps, and Do-
fregger's jiictures of stalwart mon
and magnificent women certainly ro-
persent the truth. The old Latin
patois—the so-called Uomuntch or
I iidin—was slowly forgotten; it is
now spoken in the highest valleys
i ast (of Bozen,
At this town two grent streams,

which lends straight to Innsbruck beyond the old forts nt Frazonsfcste.
To the left (west) of Bozen tho valley slowly rises to Mernn, then it
stretches nearly due west for 30
miles—the Vlntchgau—where the only
trace of the old Latin colonics is to
he found in tho 'Ladin' village names
in the stone structure of thc houses
(.the typical Alleiiinn and Swnhiun
chalet is always of wood), and in
the magnificent type of Southern
beauty of thc peasants. They speuk
tho Bavnrian patois; three hundred
years ago they understood this language so little that the Bishop of
Trient had to insist on appointing
(■urates who knew Ladin, so the
Qermanization of this pnrt of Tyrol
is of recent dnte.
Tbe 'Irrcdenti.'
It is remarkable that in the Trentino, which is purely Itulian in race
and languuge, where tho typical Lombard or Venetian patois is spoken,
the Italians are well beloved in the
lowlands, but not in tho highlands.
No more passionate Itulian patriot
than the 'bourgeois' of Trient, Kover-
eto, Hiva (on the Luke of Garda),
and no more perfervid 'Austrian'
than tho peasants of San Murtino di
C'astrozza, and above all of Cortinn
d'Ampezzo. How many a Trentin em-
jdoyec (post, taxes, railway) had
groaned througb the weary months
of 'exile' among the snows of Cortina (5,000ft. above sou level), amidst
a race of men who speak bis own dialect but who strive to forgot it und
learn Herman, who seek every opportunity to spy on tbe unfortunate
•Southron fra' the Lowlands' and denounce him to the Governor of Innsbruck,
The question arises: Why this difference? Partly the climate, with its
incalculable inliuence on the daily occupations and character and daily
life; partly for historical reasons:
hundreds of yeurs ago tbo inhabitants
of the highest valleys seceded from
thc Republic of Venice simply by culling in the Austrian; partly out of
social and religious inclination: generally speuking, the lower thc class of
individual tbe more he is attached to
Austria—to Austria thc masses, to
Italy the oIubscs.
Of all the little nations in the Aus-

Unpatriotic? Because tbey are a
branch of the grent tree beyond tho
Alps? Whatever thc reuson, there was
not an injustice too cruel, nor an
insult, too cowardly tbat wns not
heapeii ,„i the unhappy middle classes
nnd nobles of Trient mid Trieste. Did
the Trentino merchant wish his son
to study law or medicine, he had to
send his buy to Innsbruck or Vienna.
No matter that tbe lad understood
not a word of German, nor tbat each
of thc two Italian towns was ready
to undertake the expenses of a University; no mutter that tho Italians
formed the intellectual element utnong
tbe savuge Slovene pit-men, nor that
wealth, art, literature, all came from
the Italians. For centurieB, from Pi-
colomini to Montecucculi, they had
served AiiBtriu as few other gencrnlB
and admirals had; for centuries in
every branch of science and art
(Segantini was a Trentine) tbo Italians had distinguished themselves in
the Empire, yet thoy were not deemed worthy of a U/uivcruity. Tbo Bohemians of Praguo had theirs, thc

ent and Luigi Padovan the co-respondent. A decree of divorce wns
granted with damages of $."i(io and
cost against the co-respondent, petitioner to have the custody of two
children ol the marriage. McCarter
and Farris appeared for plaintiff. Tha
case was undefended.
in tin' case of    McDonnel vs    Me
t'lyment   in   winch   i.InintltT  sued      foi
payments under an agreement of sale
judgment was reserved. McCarter and
Karris appeared for plaintiff and W.
I. Bricgs for the defence.
In charging the grand jury, ,which
consisted of T. Kllpatrlsh, foreman,
Malcolm Beaton, Frederic's Brlerley,
George T. Chapman, Ralph Chris-
holm, David T. Hall, Hans L.
Haug, Leonard Albert Howson,
Henry V. Morgan, Harry
Mortimer, Erick Peterson, J. Albert
Stone and Wilfred Yeitb, Mr.
Justice Macdonald congratulated Revelstoke upon the absence of
crime in tlie district and upon the
beautiful appearance of the court
bouse grounds. Tt was the duty ol tlie
jury, he said, to enquire into the
charges brought before it and to determine whether there was a ,'i-lma
facie case. He was in favor of the
retention of the grand jury system.
It was a great precaution that an
Independent body should consider the
appearance of crime. In days gone liy
the grand jury had more power and
could  indict  on its own  volition.
It was not the grand jury's duty to
try cu-u'B. but to determine whether
the case made out should pluce the
defendant on trial, when the defence
could be made. It wus not the grand
I'ny's duty to conjecture upon the
line of defence that might be adopted.
The grand jury was a protection to
society as well as to the accused and
its members should approach their
duties without previous opinions. If
any of them were allied witb a case
brought before tbem he should so declare himself and retire from that
particular case. It was not necessary
that all members of the jury sh mid
be present at its deliberations. but
the attendance should be as full as
possible. Crown consel was entitled
tei appear with witnesses, but not
when the jury was deliberating. When
they had examined sufficient witnesses they were entitled to stop. They
wore not bound to . examine all the
witnessts. A vote of seven members
of the jury was sufficient to bring in
a bill.
It was also their privilege to in
VCStJgate any matter of public concern and to inspect and report in on
public buildings. His lordship then
referred briefly to the cases of Rex.
\s. Ernest v..,His. a charge of indecent assault, and Rex. vs James
Davis,  a  charge  of  attempted  rape.
In the case of Rex. vs Wullis the
mand jurv found no true bill, and
W.I. Briggs, who appeared for ths
defendant, who was on bail, applied
foi ins immediate discharge, G. v..
Gillan, for the crown oliered no ob-
jeotlon and defendant was dismissed.
In Rex. vs. James Davis the grand
,ury found a true bill. McCarter .mil
Farris apptored for the accused and
l'.  E.  (iillnn for the Crown.
Before discharging the grand jury
the judge explained thut it wus entitled to niukc an inspection of the
court house and hospital if it con-
■Idered it desirable to do so.
Mr. Kilpatrick, the foreman, said
Ihat the jury did not think it necessary.
The judge agreed, as an inspection
would necessitate the jury being retained for another day, although he
declared that an inspection of public
buildings by the grand jury once ' a
yeur was desirable. In discharging
the jury he again remarked upon the
absence of crim" in the district which
lie thought particularly gratifying
considering the prevalence of hard
times.

I'i'H at any time ol their lactation
period; very seldom was, or has it
been found  in  heifers with their   first
calf,
Milk fever  is  usually easy to dlag
nose,  ami  yet n very large number of
Valuable cows     are lost     yearly,  by
men   who   are   punl<td,   and   at a loss,
to, kn()w  whut happened  to their anl
mal. Anyone having had an animal
once attacked, and found out what
the trouble was, can very readiiy
know the disease when it appears the
next time, Paralysis is the predominating feature of this disease. The
milk, glands are usually the first to
be affected, thereby causing a sudden
decrease in the milk How. At morning
tbe cow may give her usual lurge
Quantity and at night only a quart.
This sudden change in a fresh milk
cow is almost a positive proof of
milk fever. Constipation is another
noticeable feature as in some attacks
the bowels and the bladder become
paralized, as the disease progresses,
the entire system becomes paralized,
noticed tirst in the hind legs, she will
stamp a while or change from one
foot to the other as if her feet were
painful. If she is loose and waiting
about, she is noticed to sway or
stagger until she falls down, she may
rise a time or two, but finally s'.ie
goes  down  to stay.
\\h"ii a cow is down with milk fever
ber position is a very characteristic
Wie, in almost every disc she will lie
on the right side, with the head
turned round and re ting on the
lift ribs. In the far advanced stage
she will bc streto'ied out head and
legs ns though dead, With no sight,
nnd eyeballs glassy. If the temperature is taken it may help a person to
diagnose the case. It lirst ta..es a
slight rise to about 103' degrees, and
then gradually drops until six or
seven  degrees below  normal.
For the treatment I will now refer
bacK to the great Dane, H. Schmidt,
as I t'l.d you before, he had become
positive it rested solely with the
milk organs, S'i after great research,
he decided it was caused through the
blood, either poisening, or the effect
of too much biood. He then tried Injecting into the udder, a solution of
iodide of potassium, which resu'ited
in about »0 per cent of cures, this
was a vcry good result, when we
consider that, before this it was generally a fatal disease. He then tried
injecting salt water, and sterilized
water, both giving good results; after a while he decided to try the injection into the udeler of atmospheric air, and this proved the very
best, as he could get '.15 per cent recoveries. This is our present day cure
and from that time to the present,
milk fever has become a simple disease instead of a dread one.
An outfit for milk fever can be
bought for $2.no to $2.50, which any
handy man can operate. It is very-
easy, yet great care is needed to prevent after effects through inflamation
A clean, well bedded stall or stable
is necessary. Wash the udder and especially the ends of the teats witb
warm water and BOap and cleanse .liter with a carbolic solution. The tube
for inserting into the teat (attucned
to tbe pump) must be boiled, some
sterilized absorbent cotton must be
placed in the cylinder of tbe pump to
prevent particles of dust germs passing through into the udder. Be sure
and have everything handy and clean,
place the tube into a basin of carbolic solution, until you place into
the teat, and then inflate, have an
assistant rub or massage the udder
during this process, when enough, it
will sound drum like, and on withdrawing the tube, tlie air will ooze
out. Hold the end of the teat tight,
and have the assistant tie a piece of
tape around it about half inch wide;
thc tube should be immersed in the
Carbolic solution directly on withdrawing and left in until read; for
the next teat, w.iei. all quarters are
done, leave alone fer about three
hours and then remove the tapes. Do
not remove any air or milk for from
12 to 24 hours. Most cases will show
improvement in one to two hours after tbe injection of air, but if n.i
improved in four to six hours repeal
tbe process.
it  is a  very dangerous practice   to
give any medicine through the mouth
to a cow sick with milk fever. The
animal is, In most ous, >g unable to
swallow properly owing to the para-
Used condition "f tin- throat. The
drought vou give then generally passes on to She lungs producing mechanical nmuemonia. Manv cows have recovered from milk fever, to die a tew
days later from pnuemonla through
drenching. Should the bowels be in a
para'lized state the\ should be emptied as much as possible by hand, afterwards giving mi injection of warm
water.
Beoniis" we have nn almost infallible cure, it does not render prevent!
tive methods unnecessary. No one is
positive of the exact cause, though
nil authorities are positive that the
distention of the udder is necessnrv
to recovery. A viry convincing argument is that milk fever is caused by
a disturbance of the blood circulation
through the cows freshening, therefore the distention of the udder by
air forces the blood, which has been
driven there in excess. out. until
SUCh time M it can automatically
adapi itself t,, tbe ie iiiircmrnts of
the heavy How   of milk.  As n preven-
tltlVe,    ll    iS   Wisi      tee   eelllv    )Ust    pRBPthr
Udder if milk a little at a time Take
nhout .i quart ftl S milking for four
time* the first   H  hours, equal     part
from each quarter, about two quarts
the next 21 hrs and it is generally safe
to take from a half to three quarters
of her flow the third day. Don't try
to starve a heavy milking cow or any
cow before Calving, but feed naturally.
It is wise to give a dose of salts
about 2 days ahead of calving and no
trouble need be feared.
