ed ln any Infantry activity in front of
Passchendaele. Both Wednesday and
Thursday have been quiet, except for
our artillery, which has been maintaining a harassing fire on all the
routes of approaches to the centre of
activity in the enemy area. Reports
of an eastward .movement of enemy
batteries probably indicate that he
may be preparing new gun positions
to support an attack upon the ridge.
The battalion commanders, with their
staffs who were captured in the last
engagement, are a striking Illustration
of the rapidity with which our troops
maintained their attack.
"With such men I could go any
where, do anything," was one captured
officer's comment on tho Canadians.
Indeed, the prisoners arc loud In admiration of our troops. Recent captures confirm the reports of heavy enemy lossos. Our troops- went over
so rapidly that numerous cases are
reported where tho enemy had no
chance to use his machine guns beforo
our infantry was on top of him. Our
courtier-battery work and, artillery
concentrations have been so effective
recently that tho enemy battery positions have been constantly changing.
Two companies of the enemy were
taken without firing a shot on tho
morning of Nov. 6. Sheltered in covered shell holes from the intensity of
our artillery and machine gun barrage
they were captured by our men before
they could get their guns ready for
action. Heavy losses were sustained
by enemy reinforcements, whioh were
endeavoring to support their front
lino,, both from our artillery and machine gun fire.

LONDON,   Nov.   8.—The   following
announcement was Issued tonight:
"A statement from a correspondent
of the Associated Press at Italian
headquarters appeared in the British
press today This statement set out
to remind tho allies thut something
moro than assurances wore necessary
for getting men and munitions to tho
threatened Italian lines, and purported
to reflect the feeling of Italians who
were represented as distrusting the
allies' efforts to help them, lt was
also stated that the enemy masses
were so overwhelming that nothing but
effective reinforcements would stem
the tide.
This statement is absolutely uncalled for, and Is calculated to do groat
harm by suggesting that the seriousness of the military situation is not
appreciated by her allies and that the
lattor are not giving her the support
she requires. There Is no truth whatever tn these assertions The state-,
ment tnat the enemy masses ure overwhelming 1b an absurd exaggeration."

Issue  Evidently  Hangs  on   How Soldiers Will Respond to Maximalist
Proclamation.
(By Daily News Leased Wire.)
LONDON, Nov. 8.—Chancellor of the
Exchequer Bonar Law Informed the
house today that the government had
no news of the latest developments iv
Russia. The Russian embassy also
was without advices. The only iiiws
of the deposition of the Kerensky government mils far has been received
from the Russian wireless and so nicf-
flcial Petrograd news agencies, boLh
of which are controlled by the Maximalists.
There is hope that there may be another side to the picture, it ia considered possible that the Kerensky faction may not'have heen turned nut of
power as completely us tho MuximaM.t
report, and that the Conservatives may
be able to reassert themselves without
a. general civil war. The army ujw
holds,, tho taWfcto the situation and tha
issue appeal's" to bang upon how far
the soldiers respond to the Maximalist
proclamation. The opinion is expressed in Russian circles In London that
M. Kerensky, who early was advised
of the intention of Nicolai Lenine to
graHp power, removed the seat of the
government to Moscow and from there
will endeavor to unite the Moderates
against the Maximalists and also to
rally tu his support Cossacks and oth ir
troops who have not already gone ovjr
to tho extremists.

DOMINION STEEL FORFEITS
GAIN MADE AT TORONTO
(By Dally News Leased Wire.)
TORONTO, Nov. 8—Dominion Steel,
which forfeited all its gain of Wednesday, selling back to 52% in sympathy
with further weakness at New York,
was a noticeable feature of today's
quiet market. While tho number of
shares dealt in reached 853, nearly half
of the turnover was in Nipissing, 400
shares being put on the market at
from $7.80 to $7.70. Tho trend of
prices in general had no significance
and the entire absence from tho sales
of former active issues, emphasized
the extremely narrow character of tho
market. In the- war bonds a sudden
demand sprang up for the secolid issue, dealings in which made up $33,-
00d of the total trades of $54,100.

today's market of the local stock exchange from being miserably light, this

during the day, opening at 55, going to

the market and talk, of an increased

sheep and lambs. The market turned
rather draggy today and there was
anything but a brisk cleanup. Good
butcher stuff, what little there was of
it, held steady, but there was a sudden let-up for the demand for canners
and common cows. This class dropped
25 cents per 100. Common light stockers were also draggy, but choice feeders held firm. At 25 cents lower lambs
were easier. Hogs held steady, the
bulk selling at 17 fed, though a few
were picked up at $16.75 fed and
watered.

"The farmer needs to know that      !
he is getting quality in the powder
that   he   is   purchasing,"  says   the
Westirn Farmer,   • If he secures the tight kind of powder, the
cost of removing stumps is greatly lessened." • '    "»
The right powder to use for stump blasting is
<^tSn)MPmGP«wrett  i
because it is made in British Columbia especially for.

was at the time pending.
(a) It shall be the duty of every
person who is an employer to make
inquiries forthwith after the issue of
any proclamation calling out men for
military service under the Act whether
any, and, if any, which of [his em-

GIVE THE CHILD A VICTORY BOND
FOR CHRISTMAS.
"What shall we give tho children
for Christmas?'' will be the Question
thnt parents in Kootenay and Boundary will he asking in a few weeks.
Why not let "Victory honds" bo the
answer?
A $50 or $100 Victory bond is about
as suitable a present as any child could
receive at thiR time. In> 14 years, if
the Interest is compounded, it will
double In value, while the possession
of un interest -ben ring bond will inculcate in the child the spirit of saving, of thrift. Nothing will bring home
to a child so thoroughly the benefits
of saving money as tbo twice-a-year
experience of receiving Interest from
tho government.
Not all parents can afford to buy
Victory bonds for their children, hut
of thoso who cannot subscribe to the
new war loan many can afford to purchase war savings certificates, which
cost a few cents more than $S each and
will return $10 in three years.
CAUSE OF  LIBERTY  IS GREATER
THAN   PARTY
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's personal magnetism. Sir Wilfrid's great, gifts and
Sir Wilfrid's services to the Liberal
party are recognized by political
friend nnd political foe.
But tho issue today is greater, infinitely greater, than the fortunes of
the Conservative or the Liberal party,
or a Conservative or a Liberal leader.
Loyalty to party or a party leader
becomes treason to the cause of liberty if tho expression of that, loyalty
nt the polls involves a vote against
sending men to reinforce the boys at
the front
Liberals during these critical days
of the war are choosing between
Laurier and the boys at tho front. It
is not surprising that tho majority of
tho leaders among English-speaking
Liberals are on this paramount issue
parting from Laurier and backing tiie
soldiers. The war in which Canada's
soldiers aro making such noble sacrifices and winning such glorious
laurels is essentially a war fo;- Liberalism. If Germany should win, Liberalism, which can only flourish under complete liberty, would be destroyed.
in future there Will be no "profiteering"
by packing houses. Not only will there
be government control but the books
ot" the packers will be open lo inspection by rep resent at ives of tho farmers'
organizations.
Government control will not only
limit tne spread between tho price received by the farmer and that paid
by the consumer, but it will result in
greater coordination of effort in supplying iho entente allies with the
greatest possible tonnage of Canadian
packing  houso   products.
Endorsement of tho Union government at the coming election will ensure that Canada will not play tho
part of Russia.
There is evidently somo sort of link
between the bears on the stock exchanges nnd the Russian bear. Poth
wont on a rampage yesterday.
The Russian and Italian situation
drives homo the necessity for every
portion of tho British Empire putting
into the. war every ounce of strength,
in manpower and material, that can bo
developed.
Two days remain in which Class 1
men may register. Thoso who have
not registered by Saturday will bo subject to the heavy penalties of tho law,
which will bo strictly enforced. But
fortunately there is no roasnn to suppose that any men in this district aro
attempting to evade registration.
One point is that if Russia quits,
Germany will have no assurance that
It will stay out of the war, Reestab-
lishment or ft stable government would
almost certainly bring it back beside
the entente allies. Hence the Teutons
cannot leave tho eastern front entirely
unguarded.
\llan T. Mode has been chosen as a
Laurier Liberal candidate in Strathcona. Tho fight will therefore bo between Mr .Mode and James Douglas,
the former member, a Liberal who supported tho Military Service bill and the
Union government program. The Conservative-Unionists, in view of Mr.
Douglas' sound record on war questions, are, of course, not opposing him,
nnd he will have the united support of
all  Unionists.
WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING
WORSE CHAOS IN  RUSSIA.
News from Russia is bad. Thr ex
treme element has control of retro
grad and has embarked upon a program calling for immediate peace.
Kerensky hits fled, possibly to Moscow,
or possibly to the army. From the
battlellno or from the ancient capital
he may succeed in developing sufficient
strength to regain control, hut whatever happens Russia cannot, prove of
much importance as a military Factor
for months.
If tne extremists carry out their
program, Teuton forces on the eastern
front will bo released for concentration against the entente in the west,
in Italy and'ln. the Balkans. Russian
food supplies will to some extent, at
least ho released for Teuton consumption.
But no Russian government., revolutionary or othp,rwise, can exist without funds and it ■■■in doubtful if Germany can fill that need. The entente
holds the sack,; a fact which may prove
a decisive factor in keeping Russia
from committing suicide by capitulating to the enemy—which is what n
separate peace, would amount to.
Russian defection would lengthen
the war, but the British Empire, the
United States, France and Italy will
continue unshaken until victory h
been won, no matter what may happen
in Patrograd. Oermany is definitely on
the. down grade and successful in
trigucs in Russia will 'delay and not
prevent the ultimate collapse of Ihe
Hun machine.
*   "My Son.   Oh My Sonl"
Harry Lauder was one or tho speak
ers nt the luncheon tendered to the (...=;
tinguished   French    editor,   Stephan'
Lauxannc,  on  Monday.    He  surprised
his hearers by the simple pathOs!
well as by the trumpet-like patriotism,
of his address.   In closing he turned t
M. Lauzunno and said:   "I am one of

green  hills,   buck  of  the  battle  lines.

Marse  Henry to  Kaiser Bill
Had Wilhelm lived some centuries
ago, and pillaged and murdered- Saracens with the cross upon his banner
he- might have been mistaken by the
mob for a. religious man. Nowadays
pretense nf piety cannot mask the motives of a. scoundrel nor can a crown
and the purple of royalty make a Ho-

seeking criminal and ruffian he happens to he.—Louisville Courier-.Toumill.
Why Not Save Sugar?
Sugar waste in this country is enormous. If this article wore merely left
out of tea every day In the United
Slates tho American oversupply would
. away up. Thore is tho expert testimony to encourage this experiment
by individuals thai the true flavor
and stimulation of lea are neutralized
by sugar. A sugarless day a week
might be counted a hardship by those
who are used to overindulgence In it
and indeed a little sugar .every day is
better for the body than the usual excess for six days and complete abstention on tho seventh day. A more satisfactory way of saving Is for every
one to cut it out for at least one meal
every day in the week.—Providence
Journal.
NOT A  PRIVATE WAR
$ . s>
Sir Wilfrid would hot give his personal support to compulsory service,
He is unprepared to say that even if,
after an extended further trial of voluntarism, it should fail, ho would be
prepared to support the raising of reinforcements  by. selective   draft.
.This, of courso, puts Sir Wilfrid
Laurier wholly out of touch with the
people of Canada from whose homes
No Spooning Allowed
IF you have been unfavorably impressed with the
flavor of Soman Meal Porridge, sure enough you must
have stirred iti Be fair to
yourself and to Roman Meal!
Don't stir it except while mixing meal and water. Remember "no spooning allowed."
Force of habit made you stir
the porridge without knowing
you did so, perhaps. Just get
another package; make the
porridge according to the
directions. Surely it is no
trouble NOT to stir Roman Meal porridge after mixing the
meal and water.
  Dr. Jackson's
Roman Meal
makes the most delightful flav-
ory porridge of all—when not
stirred. The flavor of grains
lies in their DARK parts. Roman
Meal is rich in the dark parts of
wheat and rye.
It is made from the WHOLE
berries of these grains, bringing
to you every bit of their nut-like
flavor. ; .
Roman Meal also contains
wheat-bran and flaxseed; and
you know how splendid these
are for relieving constipation.
The flaxseed in Roman Meal is
absolutely tasteless and odorless, rendered so by a special
electrical process invented by
Dr. Jackson.
Stirring Roman Meal porridge
while cooking brings back the
flaxseed taste and odor. Don't
stir except while mixing meal
and water.
RomanMeal prevents indigestion. It positively relieves constipation or "money back."
Another important thing:
Roman Meal is porous, because
it is granulated, thus allowing
the digestive juices to reach
every particle and preventing
indigestion. Stirring when
cooking breaks up the granules,
making a sticky mush instead of
the delicious Roman Meal granular porridge.
Thousands of families all over
America enjoy Roman Meal
porridge every day—it is delicious. Doctors prescribe it for
constipation and indigestion and
all undertone conditions. You
can bake with it: mix it with
your white flour when baking, it
helps white flour foods to digest
and restores their lost balance.
Ask your doctor about it.

have und are in this war.
They cannot support him in this attitude. And because of the kind of
support this attitude will draw to him,
thoy must oppose him and compass
tho defeat of the forces that will gather behind him.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, like many
others, appears to have the view that
this is a private war in which anybody may quite properly decide for
himself whether ho -will take part or
remain neutral. It will scarcely do to
entrust the Government of the country
in the miJ|jrlSfe\aj^war to men committed to such*a vle\v'as this. ThoHc
who do not. regard this as a private
war in which only those need engage,
who choose to do.so, biit'who maintain

PROPRIETOR FINED
Case    Against    Cranbrook     Brewing
Company   Dismissed—Judgment
Reserved in Agent's Case
(Special to The Daily News.)
CRANBROOK, B. C, Nov. 8.—At
Marysville on Tuesday, II. W. Drew,
proprietor of the North Star hotel,
Klmberley, was charged with having,
contrary to the act, a quantity ol1
liquor in a pluce other than in the
private dwelling in which he resides.
The case was tried before Justices
Burdett and Ferris and they held that
the offense wns proven and imposed
a fine of $50 and costs and made an
order for tho forfeiture of the liquor
which is said to be valued at $1700,
On Monday two eases cumo up before J. A. Arnold and E. A. Hill. In
the first case an offense was charged
against the Cranbrook Brewing com
pany for selling liquor containing
more than Wfa per cent of proof spirit
contrary to section 10 of the act, and
in the second case, arising out. of thi
same, Harry Hesse, agent of the
brewing company, was charged with
a liko offense. C. J. Spreull appeared
for the prosecution, and A. B. Mac
donald for the defense. It. was slated
in evidence that on Oct. 16 Hesse was
passing along Norbury avenue, near
tho police station, when tiio chief of
police took a keg of beer from the
wagon and had two bottles drawn
from same and had one bottle sent to
Victoria, for examination and tho
other given to A. P. Nohle of the
Bcattle-Murphy company for his
analysis. Mr. Noble produced what
was alleged to be the bottle handed
him for analysis. Mr. Macdonald nt
once objected, saying that there was
no identification of the bottle produced by the chief of potice when he was
under examination and lhat the
prosecution could not now mend Its
hand.
Mr. Spreull argued that lie was in
no way bound, to produce ihe bottle as
tbe burden of proof of the right lo
sell wns thrown on the defendant.
The justices dismissed the case, holding that it wns not conclusively proved that the bottle produced was the
actual bottle handed Mr. Noble by
tho chief of police.
The case against Harry Hesse was
then proceeded with nnd the evidence
as given obove was repeated except
that the chief of police now identified
the bottle as that given by him to
Mr. Noble. It contained 0.03 per cent
proof spirit on the basis of 57 per
cent, or equal to .-{.fif. per cent proof
spirit.
Mr. Spreull rested his case at this
point, and Mr. Macdonuld pointed out
that the information charged an offense by Hosse as agent, employee or
workman of the Cranbrook Brewing
company contrary to the act. It could
not, said Mr. Macdonald, bo argued
that the Cranbrook Brewing company, or any other company was a
"person" within tho meaning of the
act. Ho asked for a dismissal of the
case. The justices reserved their decision on this point.

TBI SLOCAN TOUR
Excursion    Trip    to    Slocan    District
Meets   Unanimous   Support   of

Fred A. Starkey's proposal that a
representation, of Nelaon business, men
make a two-day tour of, the Slocan

evening and W. &. Kins, F. A. Starkey
and E. G. Carpenter were appointed a
committee of three to make arrangements for the excursion party to leave
the city Tuesday morning- next. The
trip will include visits at Slocan, Silverton and New Denver. Practically all

names on the list and it is expected
that tho party will number1 a full B0
before the train leaves Tuesday morning.
During the discussion which followed
tho proposal, W. S. King stated that
on account of snow which might be expected at any time now he thought
it was advisoblo to set tho date ns
early as possible while the weather

about election time, to give assistance
In tho building of tho much needed

22 TIMES   MORE  TIMBER
WAS BURNED THAN CUT
(By Daily News Leased Wire.)
OTTAWA, Nov. 8.—That 22 times as-
much timber has been destroyed by
fire In British Columbia than lias been
cut by tbe lumbermen is the conclusion
:iched by officials of tho commission
of conservation who have been inquiring into the fire losses in the various
provinces. The investigation shows
that nn 95,000 squaro miles the timber
has been uselessly destroyed, mostly
many years ago, to the extent of 6r>0,-
000,000,000 feet. The destroyed timber
s equivalent lo almost twice the
mount of saw timber now standing
in the province and to nearly as much
saw lumber as is now standing in the
forests of nit Canada.
That is what Rabbi M. Shallit of Edenbridge, Sask.,
says regarding a cure by Zam-Buk, of which he gives
the following particulars:
"A short time ago," said the Rabbi, "a man brought his little
son to me and asked if I knew of anything that would cure the
child of a terrible skin disease, with which he had suffered for
three years. The child's forehead, eyes and cars were covered
with sores. The sight was shocking, and the child had not been
able to see for two years. As he was an only child, the father said
he would give anything to huve him cured, but as he had already
been treated by many doctors, each of whom had given up the
case as incurable, he had about despaired of ever finding a cure.
Having great faith in Zam-Buk, I recommended it. and to cut tt
long story short, perseverance with Zam-Huk has now completely
cured the child.

NEW YORK, Nov. S.—Pleas of

Robert Collins, Swedish book sellers.
The tungsten in five pound bags
wns found hidden in a. stateroom or

of tungsten In Germany, which needs
it for war purposes, would have made
tho lot found, normally valued at about
$500, worth $3000 under present conditions there. Sentence wns deferred until Friday.

by the enemy and threw them back."
Sergt.-Mnjor M. Robert Horina,
Canadian infantry, "for conspicuous
bravery ln attack when his company
met with a severe resistance and all
tho company officers became casualties. A strong point, heavily protected
by wire and held by a machine gun
company, had beaten off three assaults of the enemy with heavy casualties. This warrant officer, erider
heavy machine gun and rifle fire,
coolly collected a party of men and
leading thein against this strong

HOW BRITAIN Rio
WARTIME POST Off ICE
Wheri'lSts^Mfljeaty the King- visited
the genea^. postoffice he .wan,.shown,
tho iwtonU'liin'g machine which stamp
with the';poatmark something like 600
or 700 letters a minute. <
It is Or fascinating operation. A girl
stands' With,a bundle of letters between Weir hands at the end of a table,
'presenting them to a piece of machinery which is moving at sn tremendous
a speed that you cannot sue what it
is. As she approaches one end of
her bundle to this machine, with a
suddenness which is liKe a conjuring
trick, you; see* the letters flip out ot'
her hands; letter after letter, and then
give themselves quietly up to another,
girl on the. further side uf the table,
who sees "that none of their stamps
has alluded the mark. The sudden
flip of those letters, at the rate of «Q0
or 700 a-minute, or, let us say, ten h
second, ii* a most attractive .spectacle.
The 'King-, greatly interested In this
machine, inquired if it was ;i British
invention. Regretfully, he was informed that1 it was not. "What a pity,"
he exclaimed, adding lhe wish lhat
more■., of . these- wonderful inventions
were of British -origin. "Hut sir, we
have, invented something much greater thlin th'te^- 'stamping machine,"
"WhatWthat-?" asked Hie King.."Tiie
general pofltoffice."
Now., it is. a fact, which no. man in
the world will gainsay,-that ihe general postoffice-of Great l.lrltnin is the
superlative'postoffice of the globe.
Germany has-'ah admirable imstoffloe,
and Switzerland, too; but Britain is
easily first hV this niatter. Wilh in-
fintely mpre letters to handle than
any other-postoffice, and with an enormous amo'uni' of state work to perform in addition, the G.P.O. is nevertheless, one of the most imexcilod centres of industry you can visit, and by
far the quickest and must certain of
all postal systems. This is acknowledged,'but how many people realize
the great attainment of tliis institution during the war?
Ih the London postal service alone
14,000 men have gone into the army,
and 10,000 women, hitherto ignorant
of postal Work,* have been taken on.
Imagine the dislocation arising from
the loss of 14,000 men. Imagine tho
confusion of.drilling 10,000 women in
work,to which they were unaccustom
ed. ^And yet there has been no dislo
catlpii, .j^o,- confusion. The postal ser
vice has been curtailed, like the railway service; but never before has. the
a. P. O. had to deal with such an en-
urinous volume of business. And this
enormous volume of business is handled with all thg. old efficiency of peftjc?
time. "Tharis'the point. But consider
this new business.'
Huqe Army Mail   ....
For exiimpje, no fewer than 32,500
mail bags are despatched every week
from the G. I,. O. to the army alone.
In one room of that most orderly office as many "as 4,000 bags, for the
army are despatched every day. These
hundreds of thousands. of letters' are
sorted into their regimental unitst and
placed in the bag of ■ eaeh particular
unit. AH'thta Is done 1ft London. -The
urmy-4hW'nothlng: to'do' but deliver
the ■retSfelfl^-fl|^,'';ftilsri unit receives
its particular .Dag- from the G.P.O. AH
night and all day, without a break.the
letters of Thomas Atkins are sorted
into the regiments of the British army
and despatched from L_ondon all over
tiie world.
Jl .is an impressive,-even a memorable,'sight to -stand'1 Ir. one of the
huge rooms and watch the w'omen at
their work.' You see the women who
open tiie mail -bags and arrange the
primary sorting on-what is called the
facing table; their you see the women
who arrange these sorted letters In order and place them on a moving band
which carries them to tbe other end
of the table; here they are picked up
by the other women and in bundles,
'presented to a stamping machine, as
already described ♦ and after this they
are taken to various tables to be sorted gradually down Lo their finnl destination. And, while all this sorting
proceeds, you notice the smart post-
women coming in for their piles of
letters, and the girl telegraph messengers going backwards and forwards.
The men are so few in number that
(hey attract attention.

way women and girls have performed

pointed out -to me'that with U. vast
army in a foreign land, and no charge
for postage, the temptation -to write
home Is v«*y great; while parents at
home, separated from their sons,-w»o
are constantly ..exposed to the very
greatest conceivable peril, nnturally
write to them as often as possible.
The consequence is thnt the army pos-
l-Sv-ances'Tin udditlmi to its usual ad-
ition of old age pensions. This
tal service alone, quite apart from*all
the other work of the Q.P.O., has become to a bupiness of colossal' proportions, .'. „......
'" Secret  of Our  High   Place
The G.P.O., of coarse,'is an institution which will flourish of Itself, and
which is In great measure, Independent of individuals; but I cannot help
thinking that the successful handling
of its vast business during a, world
war owes at least something to the
Imperturbable temperament of its controller, Sir Robert Bruce, who has served under some 17 postmaster general^ and'it the least hurried or excited
of men. .He finds time to employ in his
dealings with the very loaat of the
stuff that fine and considerate courtesy which is'a part.of his spirit. In
going round the rooms with him I
observed that he never left the humblest of sorters, with whom he had
spoken for, a moment or two, without,
bowing to her and thanking her for,
the way in which she had answered
his questions.
1 like to think that this spirit is
characteristic of England, and that
those who gird at us for being less
noisy and advertising than other nations miss the secret of our high place
in the world's activities. We endeavor to do our business as gentlemen.
And it really is not necessary in business to be vulgar and self-assertive.
In my travels 1 have never failed to
find courtesy and detachment at the
head of our greatest British concerns;
while for fussiness, brtisqueness and
pomposity, I have only to go to a Jack
in office or lo an industry of third1
order. ,
ln another department of this wonderful institution—-namely, the savings bnnk, practically tin: whole business of war finance is"-transacted by
women. Here the staff lias, been increased by 600 temporary women,
most of whom had no ovperlence of
business before, and here, too, under
Miss Buchanan, there is an entire absence of turmoil. "They are* splendid,"
this lady told me, "in times of stress
they never fail to rise to the occasion."
And it is truly no exaggeration to say
thnt this vast building Is so quiet
that you might fancy yourself in a
school during an examination.
In the corridors, I passed 60,000 ledgers on the shelves.

'Under False Colors" at Starland.
The Starland shows today another
feature in which Frederick Wardc and
Jeanne Eagels have the leading parts.
It is called "Under False Colors," was
written by Lloyd Lonergan, directed
by Emilo Cliautard and produced by
Thanhouser. The last time these two
stars appeared in the same production was in "Fires of Youth," which
was more than ordinarily successful
and was very well received by tho
critics.
The story is most timely, dealing as
it does with Russia and America just
prior to the dethronement of the czar.
Mr. Warde plays the part of John
Colton, an American millionaire,
Jeanne Eagels plays the "Countess
Olga," a Russian revolutionist. Fleeing to this country to escape arrest
In her own country, she impersonates
the daughter of a Polish friend of
Mr. Colton and so gains his confidence.
A picture with two such sterling
players as Mr. Warde and Jeanne
Bagels in it is sure to be distinguished
by acting of the highest class. Furthermore, it has two big stars in one
and the same production. It Is believed that "Under False Colors" will prove
to have a wide apopal • and will be
more than ordinarily well received. It
will be shown today only.
Famous Author Praises "Idle Wives,"
Dorothy Dix, the famous author, recently wrote a letter to Lois Weber
and Phillips Smalley, photoplay producers of James Oppenheim's novel,
"Idle Wives," which comes to the Gem
theatre on next Wednesday and Thursday.
"I went to see'Idle Wives' the other
night," said Miss Dix, "and enjoyed
it very much indeed. It is one of the
most appealing human dramas I have
eVef seen, the best exponent of the
incalculable power of the moving picture as an influenco for good.
"The thing that got me was hot the
story itself, but the^wondorful framing
you gave it—the^lIi^wiUeated husband
and wife, the quarreling'family with
nothing to brighten their sordid lives
or give them new thoughts, the girl
and boy on the verge of the precipice
—all of whom are lifted out of themselves, saved, turned back, by having
their danger visualized before them,
by having new thoughts presented to
them by the magic reel.
"The Bible says that 'salvation Is
without money and without price.' Be<
lievo me, I think that the moving pictures have cut the price of salvation
down to 10 cents, and that's putting it
ln the reach of the poorest

HONOR FOR
DEAD
Vietoria  Cross  Posthumously  Awarded to Capt. Crisp, Whb Defended
Boat to  Last
LONDON'—Tho London Quzutto announces the award of the Victoria
Cross to tbe late skipper, T. Crisp, naval reserve, of the smack Nelson, and
Clio Distinguished Conduct medal to
Ills sun.
Following Is the story of the sinking of the Nelson:
(Jn an August afternoon, on or about
a quarter to three, tho trawl was shot
from the smack Nelson, and tbe
smack was on 1 ho port tack,. The
skipper was below packing fish, and
one hand was on deck cleaning fish
for the next morning's breakfast. The
skipper came on deck and saw an object on the horizon. Ho examined it
closely and sent for his glasses. Almost directly lie sang out: "Clear
for action, submarine," and lie bad
hardly spoken when a shot fell about
100 yards away on tbe port bow. The
molonnan got to his motor and the
deck hand1 went to the., ammunition
room. Tim olher bauds, at the skipper's orders,  let   go  the  warp.
Meanwhile iho guuluyer held his
fire, until tbe skipper suld, "It Is no
use waiting any longor. We will have
to let 'em have it."
Away In the distance the submarine
sent shell after shell at the smack,
ami about the fourth shot a shell
went through the port bow just below
the wuterllne. There was no confusion on board, not even when Iho seventh shell struck tho skipper, passed
through his side, through tbo deck
and cut through tho side of the ship.
AH tbe time the .ship was sinking.
"It Is all right boys, do your best,"
said tho skipper, to the gimluyer, and
then turned to tbe second hund, "Send
a message off." This was the message: "Nelson being attacked, .skipper killed; send assistance at once,"
All this time the smack wus sinking and only fivo rounds of ammunition were left. Thu second hand went
to the skipper, lying there on the
deck and heard him say: "Abandon
the ship; throw tho bunks overboard."
He wus asked then if they should lift
him into a boat, but his answer was:
"Tom, I'm done; throw me overboard."
He was In too bad a condition to
be moved, and they left him there on
ills deck and took to the small boat,
and about lii minutes aftenvard tbe
Nelson went down hy thn head, it was
just, drawing into dusk then and the
crew* of tho small bout pulled all that
night. Toward morning the wind
freshened and blew them out of their
course. They pulled ull that day and
hud a pair of trousers and a large
piece of oilskin fastened to two oars
to ultiuot attention. Once a vessel
was sighted and onco a group of mine
sweepers, but they passed out of sight.
At night the weathor became somewhat calm and fine, and through that
night they pulled until 10:30 In ■ the
morning, whon they found a buoy and
mado fast to it. By tho afternoon they
wero sighted and rescued.
Tho second hand, who took charge
of tho tiller aftor tho skipper hnd
been shot down, wnB his son. And1
so the great tragedy goes on.   i

then discussed tho unfortunate experiences of famous English professional

Shortly afterwards my Swedish
friend returned home and then promptly got to work. Tho Swedish P. A.,
between whom und the football
authorities in this country relations
havo been most cordial, deckled to
endeavor to bring about the release
of some of the English professionals.
Anton Johansson, the honorary secretary of the Swedish V. A„ and
Huron llermeltn, the president of tho
Swedisii Sporting .Tournulists elub,
were .sn far successful in their representations to their own foreign
office that the latter placed it In the
hands of their diplomats at  Berlin.
It was agreed lhat it wonld be best
to deal with one case first, and that
of Steve Hloomer was selected. Had
success attended the efforts of
Sweden to secure his rol case, then,
applications would have been made
on behalf of other professionals. Iu
addition to tho ordinary instructions
sunt to the Swedish ambassador at
Berlin, an urgent private letter was
sent to him by Baron Hermelln,
Everything was done that could possibly be dono by Sweden to bring
about Bloomer's release, with the
prospective liberations of some of his
colleagues at Ruhleben, but Germany
was ine.vorable. Sho listened to all
that wus put forward by thu Swedish
ambassador, oxpressed her readiness
to oblige Sweden in any way she possibly could—hut, for military roasons,
this particular request could not be
grunted.
When it was perfectly clear that
Sweden would not succeed, representations were mado that Germany
might favorably consider a suggestion
that Britishers who, at the outbreak
of war, were engaged In Germany as
football coaches, should not bo treated us ordinary prisoners of war. but
should bo permitted to continue to act
ns coaches under conditions that
would not be. and could not bo, in any
way prejudicial to Germany's interests,    That I.s where the matter re
mains at present. I have not received any further definite information, but r is extremely doubtful
whether there will be any amelioration ol' the lot of tbe professional
footballer.^ at Ruhleben and ^lse-
whero. The footballers of this country deeply regret that Sweden was
unsuccessful, but that does not lessen
our sense of obligation to Baron Her-
melin to tbo Swedish K. A., and to
tiie Swedish foreign office, who in
this matter tried their utmost to do
Britishers a good turn.
NINE BOILS

Anyone, who has over mifTered from

When you think you are about cured
of one, another seems ready to take ils

All tho poulticing and lancing you may
do will not cure lliem and stop more

Dolls are simply bad blood bursting
out, and the lad blood must lie made
pure before, the boils disappear.
Burdock niood Bitters is lhe greatest blood purifier known. It cleanses
the system and removes every particle
of foul material from Ihe blood, then
never another boll comes and the cure
Is permanent.

you what I know about your wonderful
Burdock Blood Bitters, ln tno spring
I suppose my system needed cleaning
out for I had nine bolls como on my

KEANE PAILS TO ESTABUSH
HALF INTEREST NI CLAIM
JUDGE MORRISON GIVES DECISI ON AFTER TWO-DAY HEARING OF
KEANE-CUNNINGHAM DISPUTE—"QUEEN BESS" REMAINS IN
HANDS OF DEFENDANT—KEANE GETS DECISION AND COSTS AS
FAR AS MILLS ARE CONCE RNED — ACCOUNTING MUST BE
MADE.
That   the claim   of   Joseph   P.
Keane for a straight one-half interest in the Cunningham mining
properties  was   not   substantiated
was   the   effect   of   the   decision
made  by Judge   Morrison  yesterday   afternoon,   when   the   noted
Keane-Cunningham   civil   suit,   in
which property said to be valued
■t   |760,00O   was    involved,    was
brought to a close.    Before giving
his  decision   the   judge   gave   a
lengthy resume of the case.
His decision was as follows:
"Under the circumstances I cannot
see how I can give effectato the request of the plaintiff.    On the evidence I do not think that the plaintiff
can claim any interest in the Queen
Bess.
"As to the Ivanhoe, he is entitled as
claimed. That has been specially
dealt with by Cunningham and also
by himself, and there he has a one-
half interest, in respect of which there
will be an accounting as claimed by
the plaintiff.
"As to the Rosebery, it seems to me
from, the way that has been dealt with
that the defendant is really as anxious
to avoid a liability as anything else in
not claiming the whole of it. I really
cannot get away from the impression
that were the Rosebery a paying
proposition I would not have witnessed what took place here today, the defendant repudiating an interest in the
whole of it. But there is a. liability
and I can say that the defendant cannot get out of at least claiming half
of It, and would claim the wholo of it
were there any profits. Therefore, I
think in that case I must force one-
half Interest on the defendant.
"As to the Sovereign, I apply the
tests to which I referred, and I am
driven to accept the defendant's version of that.
* "As to the "Wonderful, again taking
the evidence and applying the tests
referred tu, that would leave the
plaintiff with the one-fifth interest.
"I must say that I have the Impression that Mr. Keane was picking and
choosing. If he saw a property and
did not like it he ignored it and did
not care what Mr. Cunningham did
with it. Now It seems to me that the
Queen Bess wns one of these that Mr.
Keane did not think much of.
"I am sure, if Mr. Keane was in my
position he would tnke the same view
that I take. Tbe partnership aspect
of the case I cannot follow, but there
were undoubtedly theso agreements
and I have dealt with them as I understand them.
"I cannot do better than to glvo to
tho plaintiff tbe costs of tho issues ho
has succeeded on nnd to the defendant
the costs on the mutters he has succeeded on, and there will be an accounting."
Judge Sums up.
In summing up the evidence of the
case  before  giving   his   decision   the
judge said:
''There is no question of law Involved in this action. It seems to entirely
turn upon tbe facts peculiar to this
trial and resolves itself into a question of credibility.
"As far as the parties are concerned,
Mr. Keane and Mr. Cunningham are
both strangers to me and I have to rely
on my knowledge of liuma nnature ad
powers of observation and circumstances of that sort in coming to a
conclusion as to which one of them is
more likely to tell what actually did
take place and what was the actual
arrangement between them.
I do not think that one is much
different from the other as far as ln-

telllgencc is concerned; Ihey are both
apparently educated men, men of experience in certain lines of business, at
any rate. I do not think that either of
them poses as a kind of superman as
counsel so generally try to make out
tbat the opposite party is. They struck
mo as being the ordinarily sane, sensible sort of people, trying to make
the best.they could of conditions as
they find them. Apparently the kaleidoscopic turn of the capricious wheel
of fortune landed the plaintiff in rather hard circumstances at the beginning; circumstances which led to this
trial.
"It has not been denied that Mr.
Keane had to rely upon Mr. Cunningham's bounty in Vancouver ad afterwards during the winter and spring in
Seattle and whilst lit; was In thnt'eon-
dition they did talk over Ibe possibilities of mining, whereby, so far as I
am impressed, Keane would first be
advantaged, I will not say.1 that Mr.
Ounnlngnam was actuated by a missionary desire to advance the interests
of Keane at his own expense, or anything of that kind, lie would not bo
quite a sensible man if he did that,
considering his own circumstances;
but I do get the impression that Cunningham liked Keane; that he really
and genuinely tried to help Keane and
whilst so doing that he was not, of
course ignoring his own Interests. . I
think he simply meat along with
Keane, helping Keane and also ho was
looking after his own interests as well.
It seems to me tbat Keane, without
Cunningham, during the times material to the matters in dispute here,
would have been rather helpless.
Instances  Contradiction.
"Then, when it comes down to the
conflict between the two men where
they arc apparently on the same footing one has to look for the extraneous
element, and the first extraneous element that strikes one is the contradiction between the letters of Mr.
Keane relative to these issues and his
statements on oath at the trial.
"X am ln the position of a Jury and
it well may bo that what*Mr. Keane
now states on oath is true and what
ho wrote deliberately on another* occasion is not true, yet like the jury,
I may accept one statement or the
other. I may disbelieve what be said
on oath and believe what be wrote on
another occasion and vice, versa. When
I am confronted with that difficulty,
and there are other extraneous circumstances, then the difficulty is not quite
so great.
"It seems to me they nre here in the
shape of tbe evidence of Mr. Powers.
Mr. Keane says that he' himself was
not a trutnful person on a certain occasion when he wrote certain letters.
He says that. Then Mr. Powers comes
in and says he isn't truthful, and Mr.
Powers' evidence is not impeached. 1
do not know Mr. Powers but his appearance Is entirely in his favor nnd
there does not seem to be any reason
in the world why he should come here
and controdlct Mr. Keane and he does
contradict him on a matter entirely
relevant to one of the Issues in this
trial, if he is not justified in so doing.
"Taking the accumulative effect of
all -these things it seems to me that
one in the position of a judge without
a jury, or one in the position of a
jury, Is driven to the conclusion and
of drawing ono inference,
"I cannot decide this by guessing but
by applying the ordinary rules of evidence and methods of dealing with evidence. Now, If I am not justified in
accepting Mr. Keane's version on one
essential part I cannot see how I can
proceed to accept his version on the
other parts. That Is what makes cases
of this kind so undesirable from the
judicial point of view. Judges dislike
very much to deal with them. Personally I would have been very much better pleased if we had had a jury und
had a multiplicity of minds considering the conflict of evidence.
"I have a difficulty, in a way, of arriving at this because Mr. Donaghy
fought, what is an extremely difficult
case for him. In a very able manner,
and Impressed me; and gave me more
difficulty in coming to this conclusion
than I otherwise would have, but I
really think that the evidence Is so
strongly against him that I cannot see
how he stood up against It as long as
he has, taking into account these letters and the evidence as given.
"Well, it ln^ be as I say, that what
Mr, Keane iwated on oath is true, yet
nobody knows that but himself, but in
dealing with his evidence I am driven
to apply thoso other tests. Mr. Cunningham, on the other hand, has none
of. these obstacles In his way. Maybe
they sh uld be there, but I did not recognize them. I do not see,that there
is anybody contradicting Mr. Cunningham, except Mr. Keane, of course;
and there are none of these contradictory statements in the correspondence.
In other words, there seems to me a
general consistency in the evidence of
the defendant which is absent in the
evidence of the plaintiff. I am taking that view as the view of an entire
outsider, Jus dealing with the cold
facts of the thing as it were."

AMEND HOLIDAY ACT,
SAYS BOARD If]
Lenghty   Discussion   Follows  Victoria
Proposal   to   Petition   Rescind-
ment of Existing Law.
STARKEY    STRONGLY    OBJECTS
Consensus of Opinion  Is That Saturday Would Not Carry Again
on Vote.
"That this board regrets that It cannot sec ils way clear to endorse the
action of the. bonrd of trade of Victoria in asking for a repeal of the
weekly half holiday act, but tbat it
would be glad to endorse a resolution
asking the government to amend tbe
act to road for tbe six summer months
of the year instead of a full yearly one-
half holiday."
Such was the motion passed at the
meeting of the board of trade last
evening, when a letter from the Victoria board was read and discussed
and in which the support of tbe Nelson board was asked for in their action of petitioning tbe government to
repeal the existing act,
In the dlscuslson which followed the
reading of the Victoria communica-,,
tion J. A. Irving stated that ho was
of the opinion that before any action
was taken in the matter tho load
board should hear what other cities
bad to say about the Victoria proposal to agitate the resclndment of
the act,
President ,1. R. Hunter stated that
he was as fond of the weekly half hoi-
May as anyone. He took the view
that If the hoard assisted in getting'
tbe act annuled there would be difficulty in getting the merchants together in an effort to arrange a mu-
t.ual holiday as the Victoria board
had suggested. If each of the towns
had the privilege of choosing its own
day then no one, he said, would know
where they stood.
Aid. John Bell had found that insofar as his business was concerned
Wednesday was a much bolter day
than Saturday.
Joseph Meagher was of the opinion
that the present law restricted to a
great extent the business man's aide
of tbe question.
Fred A. Starkey strongly opposed
any thought of endorsing the action of
tho Victoria board before first hearing
both sides of the story. He suggested
that a meeting might be called at
which the clerks and citizens of the
city would be represented and then
•uke such action as would bo most
beneficial to tho majority. He did not
think that now the government would
repeal the act ontirely as it had already been referred to the people. "If
we undertook to decide the question
tonight," emphatically stated Mr.
Starkey, "It would be unfair for ua as
the board of trade to represent the
people."
Joseph Meagher expressed the opinion that the board of trade represented the business interest of tho qtty
and that as such it was quite within
tho scope of the. board to act.
T. p. Stark said that if tho clerks
and- ratepayers wanted to take up the
question It would be quite in order for
them to do so. W. S. King remarked
that he had said so much last year
that he was willing to let the matter
go either way. although he believed
that If the question was brought to a
vote next January that the half holl
day would not be Saturday. "If It
comes to a vote," he Bald, "Saturday
will bo knocked in the head,"
The same opinion held with B. G.
Carpentler, who stated he was confident that the people would vote any
days except Saturday when the question was brought beforo them again.
Saturday had heen a detriment to his
business. He had assumeU that Wednesday, would have been much more
satisfactory.
Mayor J. R. Annable suggested that
lt might be a wise plan to lay the matter over until the house meets before
action was taken.
