CHRISTIANITY, Norway, May liO.—
(Uy the Associated Press.)—German
sulsmarines agitln have started unrestricted warfare on Norwegian fishing
boats in tho Arctic ocean, north and
east of tho Norwegian coast. Fishermen saved from sunken vessels and
landed at Ilhmmerfors reported that
the commander of a U-boat stated
that all vessols' met by him would, be
sunk. Norwegian ships, especially,
would be destroyod, because, ho said,
tho Norwegians were sending fish ail
and seul oil to England. This, however, Is contrary, to the truth, as tho
export of oils is forbidden and Germany knows It,
The U-boats arc said to have shelled, vessols without warning and, according to survivors, direct . flro
against the lifeboats.
Russian fishing boats and a Russian
mail steamer from Vardar eastward
bound nnd overcrowded with passengers, also woro shelled. Eight persons, among them a postmaster and
his assistant, were killed on the deck
of the steamer.1 Many others wero
hurt after taking to tho boats.
When tlie pbnimunder of one German submarine • was advisod Hint
Russia was at peace with Germany,
he answered that ho acted the way it
suited him. Tho U-boat measured
ISO feet In length and surprise is
caused in shipping circles lhat It can
carry enough oil for a cruise so far
up tho Norwegian eoa^jt.
Great bitterness has been eaused
among the Nojnveglans by the .iction
of tho submarines, as Germany nets a
large part of the fish caught around
these places. The newspapers suggest
that fishermen stop selling their catch
to Germany.

"Should the Swiss government 'por-

Table      Return     of     Correspondence
About  Chinese  Question—No
Action Was Taken
(By Daily Newa Loused Wire.)
OTTAWA, May ■ 20.™There was
tabled in parliament today a return,
consisting of 200 typewritten pages,
covering correspondence between Sir
Robert Borden, Hon. J. A Calder,
minister of Immigration, and1 Hon. T.
A. .Crorar, minister of agriculture, und
various people relating to tho movoment, to bring Chinese coolies into
Canada to relieve the labor shortage
and to Increase production.
Generally speaking, the- proposal
received a consideraJjle amount of
support from a limited section of tho
agricultural Interests of the province
of Saskatchewan, the fruit growing
industry or British Columbia and a
few other bodies. Tho strongest opposition came from organized labor
throughout tlie Dominion.
One of the first lotte'rS on tho file
was from Mark Workman, president
of the , Dominion Stool . corporation,
who, In a letter to tho premier as far
back ns Augu«L 1017,* roforrod to the
possibility of "providing additional
labor for our operations iu Cape
Breton through the expedient of importing ' Chinese workers."

,'(By Dally Newfi Leaned Wlro.*)
OTTAWA, aray 20.—In the summary of the war situation issuod if-
the British ministry of information
and cabled to the Canadian government is the following:
"For two reasons Germany Is
forced to seek a decision In the field
as early as possible. Delay would involve the risk of a breakup In Ihe
alliance which she cannot afford. Her
victory in tho coming summer ca
pnlgn must be absolute, or worse than
valueless, for Germany will hnve exhausted her reserves, whilst, uvon
should the Franco-Dritlsh alliance
find themselves similarly reduced, the
American army will just lie approaching its zenith. From immense proportions, Gormany thinks she will be able
to achieve a decisive victory within
tho time limit. The allies aro confident that with the infusion of the
American troops, whose first draft is
already Incorporated in French and
British lines, they can withstand ihe
full forco of the enemy assault until
tho American army In the field has
grown to the samo proportions as
those of tho French and British,
"It Is a question of time. Every
day's delay increases the strength of
tho American army in France, bringing Germany nearer to the end of her
time limit."

At the cost of a small jar of ordinary
cold cream one can prepare a full
quarter pint of the moat wonderful
lemon skin softener and complexion
beautifier by squeezing the Juice of
two fresh lemons into a bottle containing three ounces of orchard white.
Care should be taken lo strnln tho
Juice through a fine cloth so no lemon
pulp gets in, then this lotion will keep
fresh for months. Every woman knows
that lemon Juice is used to bleach and
remove such blemishes as freckles,
sullowness and tan, and is the ideal
skin softener, smoothencr and beautlfler.
Just try It! Get three ounces of
orchard white at any pharmacy and
two lemons from the grocer nnd make
up a quarter pint of this sweetly fragrant lemon lot ion and massage it
daily into the face, neck, arms*and
hands, lt should naturally help to
white, soften, freshen and bring out
the roses and beauty of any skin. It is
truly marvelous to smoothen rough,
red hands.

BERLIN, May 20.—(Via London)—
"ln the evening and toward midnight
the firing In the Kommel r-dglon increased considerable in intensity,"
says the official communication from
general headquarters today.
"Violent duels developed early this
morning. On Ihe other battle fronis
also fighting activity revived frequently. .
"On the southern bank of the Ancre
the British attacked In the early morning with strong forces. They mado
their way into Vlllc-Sur-Aiiere. The
enemy's attempts to advance further
along the Ancre valley were unsuc
cessful. Several assaults launched
against Morlancourt broke down before the village with sanguinary
losses.
"At many points along the front
British^ and French recotmoitering
thrusts were repulsod. Wo captured
prisoners in forefleld engagements
and successful raids north of St. Mihiel.
"London and Dover, and other places
on the English coast were successfully

BRITISH COLUMBIA
SOLDIERS  RETURN  HOME
(By Daily News Leased Wire)
WINNIPEG, May 20.—A parly of returned officers were passengers [on
the Imperial Limited tonight. Included in the number were Major
Cooper and Lleqt. Tt, V. Walter, Vancouver, and Lieut, L, Bocver-Potts,
Nanaimo.
There was also on board a party of
Imperial naval officers, including Capt.
FItz and Messrs. Alger, Wilson, Ridley, Club, Heron and Smith, whose
destination Is Esquimau, B. C.
A military hospital train also,arrived hore tonight. Thero were 85 returned men for points in M, D. No.

for Edmonton and 85 for British Columbia points. Forty of the passengers were cot cases.
(Continued from Page One.) »
with the negotiation of treaties, extension of commercial relations and other
expenditures connected with the Canadian trade, Hon. Bodolphe Lemieux
spoke of/thS trade' relations existing
between*. Canada nnd France and Russia. A good? commercial treaty and
better business -relations would help to
foster good feeling.
Sir George Foster,, in reply, stated
that France liad' given notice of the
termination! of its commercial treaties
to tako .effect in. May, 1919. He ex-
plalncd; that- the renunciation . of the
treaties was being made in order that
France might make new arrangements
under changed fiscal conditions
brought about' by the war.
Referring to ' rtussiii, the minister
said that.Canada had started a propaganda In liussia to increase business
relations between the two countries
but recent development In that country caused the withdrawal of Its representations.-
Sir Geor'fi-o Foster remarked that all
Canada's trade commlasions had been
interfered with on account of the lack
of transports-arid the confusion which
had resulted' through the war. They
had, however, been diligently engaged
on work preparing information to assist in reorganizing the trade after the
war. ■
Urges Boosting of Trade.
Mr. Lemieux advocated greater advertising of Canadian products in
Europe after the war. He thought
Canadian attaches should.bo appointed in the larger British consulates on
the continent.  ...
W F. Ctockshutt, Ihanlford. asked
the minister whether he eould give any
encouragement to the country with regard to the shipping situation. There
was a danger that trade with the United states would develop in a very onesided way us we were buying extensively from that country, but partly
because of boor shipping facilities,
wore unable to sell to it.
Sir George said he wished he> had
more encouragement of offer, but the
situation was far from satisfactory.
For the-last four or flvo months It
had been-practically impossible to get
either a stcapier or sailing vessel on
the Australian, route. The China and
Japan service on' the Pacific had also
suffered, although there would probably be three boats on that service for
the balance of the season. Ono of the
Empresses had been taken off and replaced by a smaller boat. The West
Indies service had been fairly good,
four excellent vessels having been used
on this route. Two of these, however,
had now- been commandeered.
Banking Facilities Abroad.
A, M. pGchono asked whether something could not be done iu the direction, of developing Canada's banking
facilities abroad. Tbe minister of trade
and commerce admitted that the
growth of banking was very Important to.the development of trade. Canada had suffered to a certain extent
because • being a ydiitfg country, the
banks had about all they could do
without going outside tlie boundaries
of the Dominion.
Explaining■■■■an item of $lf,0,0QQ to
provide for development and extension" Of Canadian trade, Sir George
Foster spoke of the advertising of Canada which Is being:done through the
educational motion picture film. He
stated that the films were circulated
through theatres and exhibited in Canada, United States, New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, China and Japan.
The house Ihon took up the estimates of the department of immigration und colonization.' In discussing a
vote of $5(10,000 to provide for salaries
of agents and employees In Canada and
other countries. \V.: D, Euler, North
Waterloo, asked if it would not be advisable to curtail tbe staffs of the department in the  United States.
Hon. J. A. Calder replied that in regard to curtailment of staff a
considerable amount of work had been
thrown upon the department, but he
thought, after careful {investigation,
tlie staff could be placed on a more efficient basis.
Immigration Expenses.
Another Item of $560,000 to provide
for contingencies in Cunudinn, British
and foreign agencies nnd general Immigration expenses, was explained by
Mr. Catdetv Ho said that $240,000 of
this was to be spent on advertising,
$'IO,O0pH.yn priming, $100,000 went to
agencios In tlie rn'lted States and $50,-
000 to those'in Great Britain.
J. H. Sinclair, Guysboro, asked if any
ot this advertising for which such a
substantial v.c^te was asl<od went to the
papers of Great Britain. If thero was
no immigration from Europe to Canada at present, he thought the European advertising might very well be
discontinued.
Mr. Calder explained that the advertising in the papers of Great Britain
had been greatly decreased since the
war started.' It was important,- however, to keep the organization in Great
Britain goinng. There was a staff of
about CO maintained in the British
Isles, 35 of them located in London, and
the remainder in 12 other offices.
Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux recommended the encouragement of Belgian immi-.
gration and the minister promised to
consider his recommendation.

conclusive evidence.' says the Daily
Mail in' regard to the Irish arrests.
The danger lo the allied cause should
not be underestimated. The Germans
clearly hoped lhat at the supreme, moment of the gigantic offensive which
they are now preparing the Sinn
Fein would hamper our forces and distract our efforts by a great insurrection In Ireland. The new executive in
Ireland has moved so swiftly and courageously thai we may hope the con-
piracy lias been paralyzed.
"In the measures taken, the Irish
executive has followed (on a smaller
scale) the precedent set hy Abraham
Lincoln, who, when dealing with sedition, swiftly and resolutely arrested
many hundreds of guilty persons and
kept them In prison so long as the peril
continued. Ho was much denounced
ut tho time for his muscular action.
Posterity holds that by it he saved the
United States,
"Viscount French, who is a convinced home ruler and a devoted son of
Ireland, has shown that ho is a man
of  action."

TRYING TO  KEEP  UP THEIR
AVERAGE OF SINKINGS
There may be mere than the disolay
ot ord'nary Germnn ferocity and bar-
barlBm ln tho campaign of unrestricted
warfare which has again broken out
against Norwegian fishing boats.
There have been many signs recently that the German submarine campaign was loBlng Its sting, that British
restrictive measures wero having an
effect out of all proportion to enemy
expectations. The channel ports on
the''Belgian ccast which were being
used as submarine bases have been
blocked and good progress has been
made toward bottling up tbe undersea
craft in their ports In Germany by
means of mine fields and other means.
With their operations curtailed in
this, way, the Boche admiralty could
have only one way of making a showing In the number of ships sunk per
week.*' That is by destroying small
craft belonging to the Scandinavian
countries. t
Apparently that course ls being followed. Norwegian newspapers suggest that Norse fishermen should refuse to soil their fish to Germany,
adopting that as a method of retaliation. , If Germany continues to destroy Norwegian fishing craft the
fishermen will not have this alternative. They will soon cease to be
catching any fish.
crook thoroughly, .scald till hot, wipe
dry and stand in the sun, if convenient.
Boll nine quarts of water, allow It to
cool thoroughly, then add the water
glass and stir well in the crock. Bland
crock in a cool dry place and do not
move unnecessarily after the eggs are
packed. Put the eggs loosely, but
carefully, ln the solution, leaving a
deptb of two Inches or more over the
top layer of eggs. Tie heavy oiled paper over the crock to prevent evaporation. For more than 15 dozen eggs,
two crocks are preferable to one larger
one. After using the water glass once,
it must be thrown 'away.
If water glass is too expensive or
unobtainable, add three pounds of un.
slacked lime to five gallons of water.
After the lime has dissolved and Bet-
tied, carefully dip off the clear water
and pour over the eggs as with water
glass.
Do not pour- the water glass or
lime water over the eggs until it has
thoroughly cooled.

THE ARMY  AN  EXAMPLE OF
THRIFT
Armies In the old days used to be
horrible examples of wasteful methods.
Every; war  produced  records  of the
grossest  carelessness   in   the  use  of
**
supplies.   But this war and its sternest
of. stern necessities hus changed all
that. Tbiiaythe army leads in point**
Ing -the way to economical management. _ Take the case of fats as an
example.
At the extensive base hospitals near
Salonika, approximately 100,000 pounds
ot fais are recovered each month from
U. su water und table scraps. This
quantity has been easily obtained
w.thuut depriving the men of their
''dripping" und suet, and is sufficient
to produce about 80,000 pounds of hard
soap, jau.uoO pounds of soft soap, as
well as considerable quantities of
dubbiiig and glycerine for the manufacture of ammunition.
Tuis tat Is obtained from the following sources:
(1) All tho bits of bacon rind and
other fats that are left at table.
(2) The skimmings from stow.
(3) Grease from boiled bacon or
ham, and fat from pans in which
onions, tomatoes or eggs have been
tried.
(4) Bully beef tins.
(5) Bones, especially marrow
bones.
(6) Grease from dishwater.
The grease from dishwater is recovered'by means of a simply constructed box trap placed near the
wash sinks. All animal fats are carefully rendered in largo caldrons to
prepare them for the uses to which
they are to bo put.
NOW   IS  THE  TIME  TO   LAY   IN
■   EGGS FOR THE WINTER.
A» a measure of food conservation
and household economy eggs should be
preserved now for use during the coming winter.
A government report gives tho following Instructions for tho uso of lime
water or waterglass:
Eggs laid in April, May and early
June keep better than those laid later
in the season. If properly treated thoy
Willi keep in periect condition from
eight to twelve months. If tho oggs
are to be boiled, the arger end should
be pierced with a needle before putting
them In the boiling water.
The' eggs, to begin with, must be
fresh and clean, not washed clean, but
laid clean.  If the shell of an egg Is net
clean use It at once.  If there is a spat
of soil on the shell, the water glass
doea not come in contact with the shell
■ v •***■
and the egg will decay.
A quart qf water glass in a fivo gallon crock 6r agate-ware container will
•suffice for 15 dozen eggs.   Clean tbe
And don't forget the Patriotic fund.
The Sinn Feiners who have been
arrested on charges of conspiring
with Germany should be tried promptly and once their guilt is established
given short shrift. Leniency in such
a case would be a cardinal blunder.
Baron Rhondda has withdrawn his
resignation as food controller. He
I as a thankless Job, but he is achieving good results, in spito of the crlt-
1 rism which it seems the fate of food
controllers to attract.
Canada imports annually canned sardines valued at over 1100,000. The
major portion of these imports are
from the United States, Norway, the
L'nited Kingdom and Portugal, in the
order named. Oddly enough, only 20
per cent of the New Brunswick catch
is canned in this country. The remaining 80 per cent is shipped to Maine
to be canned by American canners.
The Canada food board is at present
taking active steps to have these fish
canned in Canada. If this Is done It
will be a distinct advantage to Canadian consumers.
WHAT THE PRESS  IS SAVING
Rossland Closedown
The dncrous provincial mining tax
bus resulted in the practical closing
ot the Hossland mines, where the output is largely gold, although gold will
not; buy as much by about half as
three or four years ago. It was not
even a war tax, but one to raise revenue, and it appears as though the
loss of revenue to the government
would be considerable with the mines
not producing—through the pumerous
indirect sources that make cash flow
into the government from live communities. It Is unfortunate all around.

The Carpet Bag
The Nation's Business, on the authority of a leather manufacturer, says
that the carpet bag is going to come
back into vogue. The carpet bag of
our grandfathers had many marlts. It
was capacious. It would stand rough
handling. Yet .there was a distinct
disadvantage about the carpet bag. It
had a humorous aspect. It set off the
lankiness of a tall owner as nothing
else could. Fat men, too, seemed ridiculous when they ambled along in
company with their baggage. Not
changing fashion, nor leather, but
laughter did for the carpet bag. The
thing was laughed out of existence.
Will the carpet bag in its renaissance
bo treated any more kindly? We wonder.—Toledo Blade.

The doctor and the lawyer had a
difference one evening.
"I tell you," the lawyer later told
a clergyman, "doctors are callous
brutes with not a spark of human
feeling within them."
"Come, come," replied the clergyman, trying to calm bis friend, "that
ls rather a sweeping statement, you
know."
•, "Not a bit of it," declared the law-
ye* quickly. "When I was ill a few
weeks ago and suffering untold agonies, I sent for the doctor. 'Doctor,' I
moaned, "I'm suffering the torments of
hell.' What! Already7" was hie unfeeling retort."
Where gardening is done on a community scale, as In the case of vacant
lots, a potato planter would be a profitable investment. It would mean a
tremendous saving of time and energy
for the tired business man who is
giving his evenings lo vacant lot gardening. It could do tho work for all
the members of an organization whoso
lots are located near each other. A
potato planter can be made at home,
and full directions how to go about it
will bo found ln Bulletin No. 90, Issued
by the division of horticulture, the department of agriculture.. It will probably be found more satisfactory, however, to buy ono or borrow one from a
public spirited market gardener.
The potato planter makes the row,
opens the furrows, plants or drops the
sets, covers them and applies commercial fertilizers at the same time if
desired. To do as much in the old
way would require a span of horses
and a man to open the furrows with
a plough, three men or boys to plant,
and one man to scatter the fertilizer,
and a span of horses and a man with
a double mould board plough to cover
the sets. This, of course, applies to
community gardening on a more or
less extensive scale.
SPUDHOLE AND THE KIP:
AN INCIDENT IN FRANCE
MIRACLE8 CF MODERN TIMES
PERFORMED BY CLEANLINESS
The greatest miracles ot modern
times have been performed with bonfires, draln-plpis, soap and paint, says
Bruce Barton.
The Philippines have boen mado a
healthier place to llvo in than the
average American town.
Typhoid has been stamped out of
Serbia.
Tho Panarna canal zone has been
transformed from a dismal unhealthy
swamp to a wholesome place for
homes.
The French, with a force of 110,000,
lost 22,000 lives in their effort to build
the canal, deaths ot Americans were
4000 out of an average of 32,000. Their
record there was nothing short of
miraculous—and a c;ean-up campaign
did It.
Last year Cleveland, in its Cleanup and Paint-Up week, disposed of
refuse sufficient to fill a train three
and one-half miles long.
. Another middle western town
gathered Its boys together, and, by
■offering a reward for each 100 tin
cans, abolished its unsightly back
yards in a single day.
"Help Us Clean Up Philadelphia,"
was the slogan that banished the dirt
in that city.
"Don I let your good cigar start a
oud fire," wus ono of Kpchester's
wilIir cries. ' *
A ciean-up and paint-up week
muuns less sickness, fewer fires, better
cnnuien, and higher property values.
Tnere was once an Old Homan
named Crussus. He trained a band
uf staves to be firemen, masons and
puiuters. Then he made it h.s business to buy up bouses on fire aad put
iiie fire out. Aiso he bought houses
iiiat needed pui.iting and painted
.hem. And his houses increased so
much in value tnat be became tbe
i-ictiest man ln Rome.
"There is no better test of the civil-
.zaiion of a community than tuis:
riuw much paint clues it use?"
A wise man said that.
it is not given to you to found a
■ eliglon or mako a groat Invontlon or
uiscover a new .continent,.
But you can make your town a
cleaner, better place to llvo in.
And by so doing you give a little
push to the Chariot of Civilization.
You become, in a small but Important way, a worker with Prometheus and Socrates and Plato and
i-'runklin and Watt und' Edisou and
even Providence itself.
(By Rifleman Patrick MacGill, Author
of"The Great Push," etc.)
The hour, was midnight when
Bowdy Benners emerged from his dugout and went across to the flrestep.on
which his mate was standing, rapping
his knuckles one against tho other as
he watched the sullen field In front.
"Your go aB sentry's at an end,
Spudhole," said Bowdy, as .ho went up
on the banquette beside the sentry.
Spudhole Bubb, a Cockney, ceased
rubbing his knuckles and pulled himself together for the relief, as thos corporal on duty appeared in the bay.
"Blimey! It wasn't nrf 'ard to keep
awake," he said. "Almost peeled tho
skin off my knuckles tryin' to keep the
sleep away."
"Well, you've two hours now, Spud
hole," said Bowdy.
'And I don't nrf want two hours,"
said the Cockney. "Lor! I feel as If
I'd ihad no kip since Mons. Last
night I was on that ration pnrty that
went astray and. did not get back till
mornlnV then all today bulldln' the
dnmned narapet.nnd no chance o' lyin'
down. But cheerio now, Bowdy, I'm
off.'"'
»Off for a Sleep.
With theso words Spudhole disap-
neared Into tbe due/out. curled himself
nr in a corner with his back to the
vail. tlBhtennd his coot round his body
nnd closed hlB eyes. Tho dugout wns
deserted. A covering party had gone
out with tho enelneers who were at
work rcnalrimr tho wires on No Man's
Land, and tbo trench for tho timo
holm- was held hv a vorv small garrison A cantlto placed In tho neck of a
bottle, burned dlp'lv near tho door and
fWhoe old not blow It out. He was
fnr too tired to trouble about such
details. All bo wanted wns tn have a
sood sound stem In the short time that
woe allowed -him. Two hours pass
oulc.k'v for it weary man In repose. And
fltiiidhoie was tired. Never In all his
three vears of war hnd ho felt so
worn out. He wan cortalnly aBleen
flvo minutes inter when ths coroorol
who had charge of the ration fatigue
came Into tho dugout. Food had come
up and tho corporal was looking for
the sergeant of Spudhole's platoon,
"Here, you!" he called. "Where is
Sergt. Snoggcr?"
Spudhole did not move and the corporal camo up and pulled him by the
arm. ,  ,
"Wot d'yer want?" g Spudhole
grumbled, stirring uneasily.
'Where's Snogger?" inquired the cor.
poral.
"Coverin' party," Spudhole mumbled
and fell asloop again.
The corporal went put, but returned
almost Immediately.
"Spudhole!" ho shouted, but the
sleeping boy paid no hoed.
"Well, some of you fellows are the
limit," said the corporal and again he
shook .the youth,
"Oh, blimey! Wot tho 'ell's wrong
wlv yer now?'
trenches and all floated confusedly,
losing their shape, growing Into gigantic proportions and then disappearing
suddenly. Matty thoughts occurred to
him. There waB one which constantly
returned and finally Ixpelled all the
rost. It was tho thougBt of that candle
burning near the door, the only candle
in his section and the one, by the light
of which, his mates wrote their letters
home, in his section were married
men, old soldiers, who wrote daily to
their wives. A letter homo meant so
much to the waiting-women. Presently
the covering party would come In and
presently tho candle would havo burned
to the glass. The post would go out
by down and the letters would not be
written.
"I must get up and blow out that
bloomin' candle," said Spudhole several
times, but each time he snuggled deep,
or into his overcoat, for his body
claimed repose though his conscience
urged him to get up and . extinguish
tho candle.
Half an  Hour Gone.
Ho looked at his wrist watch. Half
an hour had passed qnd the time whon
lie would be rouBed was approaching
with almost Incredible speed.    .
"Well, if I don't blow that damned
candle out I'll not sleep a wink the
whole! bloomin' night," he ejaculated, I
getting to his feet. Approaching tho
door ho bent down and puffed at the
flame and extinguished it. Then he
lay down again.
But not to sleep. Spudhole, a bravo
soldier, daring In an offenslvo and
(logged In defense, was afraid of rats.
Tho sector In which his battalion was
now placed was infested with the
vermin. They swarmed In trench and
dugout and wero always out on tho
prowl for food. Now that tho dugout
was in darkness they came out from
their holes and ran.all over tho place.
Their velvety paws mado no noise tolling of their approach and Spudhole,
half asleep, only became conscious of
the presence of one of the most daring
when it ran across his faco.
He sat up with a shriek, wont toward the door and lit the candle again.
When tho rats saw tho light thoy
slunk into tho corners and became one
with the walls.
'Well, I won't get my phiz chawed
off, anyway," said Spudhole as he lay
down again. "I'll have my sleep now,
oven if thero never goes a letter 'ome
ter Mighty.''
Again he curled himself up on the
floor. Five minutes passed by, then
He looked at his wntch again and
saw that the time was now five mln-
uteB to one. And he had had no real
Bleep yet. ' Besides the candle was
going out and the rats would visit'him
presently
lt was a low filing sound that attracted his attention and the sound
came from the corner in which the rations were plied.
'The damned rats at tho grub," ho
muttered and with one wild dash ho
"Time to turn out?' Spudhole asked,
blinking In the corporal's face. "It's
just like my luck. And I was Just In
the right way for a kip."    •
"So it seemed four hours ago/' said
the corporal. "You looked so comfortable as you snored that I hadn't the
heart to wake you up. But now you've
got to get up for it's "
"Wot?' asked Spudhole.
"Stand to! Six o'clock in the morning," said the corporal.

Council Will Place Bylaw Before Citizens to Decide Power to Grant
Financial Aid.
At the city council meeting last evening it was decided to put a bylaw
before the citizens, at the first opportunity, giving the council power to
make donations lo tho Y.M.C.A.
A delegation consisting of C. F. McHardy, p. J. Boles, I. R, Poole, T. D.
Stark, R. B. Jackson, J. It. Hunter, Tt,
W. [Hlnton and A. T. Walley waited on
tho city council last evening nnd made
an appeal for financial aid for the Red
Triangle fund.
The question had been turned over
tc the finance committee for consideration at the last meeting. They reported that no provision could be found
in the bylaws for making donations to
the Y.M.C.A. The bylaws were, produced and it wuh found that donations
would be made to charitable institutions but not to corporations. Mr.
Hlnton pointed out that on account of
the amount of sporting goods given
away by tlie Institution overseas unt
ti. mention the refreshments ho. believed that the Y.M.C.A could be classed as a charitable institution. Ho said
U)B Y.M.C.A. never paid dividends and
could  nut  be called a corporation.
.Air. Jackson produced figures showing the Indebtedness of "the Y.M.C.A. to
the city of Nelson. He showed a total
of $.714.21.,,' made" up'JVdf '$881.21' for
taxes and interest, %AT\ for .scavenger
rates, $81,87 Car gns, $76 for water, $40
for sewer and $041.63] for light. He
said that in the city of' Calgary $lfi,-
000 was donated to the Y.M.C.A, annually and that tho association was not
charged for taxes and other assessments which could be* levied by iho
city. He said that he had been connected with associations in six different places and that Nelson was the
first where he had found the Y.M.C.A.
was asked to pay taxes. Ho added
that this was no fault of the city council as it was a provincial law.
Mayor McQuarrie said that on ac-
count of the wonderful work of the
association overseas he thought it deserved every consideration, ire pointed
out that tho city was now experiencing
the hardest time it had ever had but
that, In spite of this fact, he thought
the Y.M.C.A. should receive some help.
Mr, Walley stated that the committee
planned to straighten tip the accounts
with the city and start a clean sheet,
He said that the committee felt that If
they onco got cleared up it could keep
out of debt. He. said thnt Mr. Jackson had shown that he coidd make
tiio Nelson building pay. Tho budget
for this year was estimated, at $7400
and in tho first four months of the
year the receipts had been $2171. It
was pointed out that the last four
months of the year were always the
best for income and the committee had
overy reason lo believe that the local
Institution could make it pay with n
man such as Mr. Jackson at the head.
Aid. McDonald said that ho thought
some concession should be given in the
accounts when the committeo of the
Y.M.C.A. showed their willingness to
do the best they could. He said that
he thought the cause a most worthy
one when it was considered the good
done for the boys both of the city and
overseas.
Mr. Jackson said that tho indebtedness hampered tlie committee in that
they were not allowed time to carry
on the real aggressive work among the
boys. They bad to give all their time
to financial questions and could not
dovoto proper time to the boys of the
city.
A motion was carried stating that
on condition the Y.M.C.A. pay up arrears In taxes, water rates and sower
rentals that the council undertake to
put a bylaw before tho people at the
first available opportunity and would
let the accounts for electric light, gas
and scavenging stand over until such
vote was taken.       .    ,
The delegation expressed their satisfaction at this arrangement and Mr.
Hlnton thanked tho council for their
consideration In granting the interview.

mother had slnii been rfl< and that he

He was gitien / exemption until the
next' class is called.'
B. W; Q. Fleming asked' exemption
on the ground that he was the sole
support Of his father and mother and
that he was carrying on a useful business, He v*as also married, but Mr.
Wragge pointed out that as he had
been married after the act camo into
force that this did not have any bearing oh' his case. Mr. Hume agreed
with Mr. Fleming when ho stated that
it would take some -time to dispose of
a general- business such as he carried
on. He said that his father was notable physically to carry on the busl-
s. After somo deliberation the
tribunal granted exemption until
Nov. 1..
Supports Mother
K. D. Adams told the tribunal that
he had been the sole support of his
mother, a sister and brother for tho
past six years. Ho turned over his
wages to his widowed mother and got
from her what was required for his
own personal current expenses. The
tribunal decided that he was needed
.at home and gave him exemption until tho next class was called^
Mrs. "McKlnnon appeared for hoi*
son, I.. S. McKlnnon. She asked exemption because her husband was
serving and, was now in Mesopotamia.
She said sho felt certain that her husband would never have enlisted if he
had thought that her son would not
be left to look after her. She vald
sho thought her husband was of.more
value to tho country than her .son
would he, as he was In category "13."
Mr. Wragge pointed out that every
man who oould possibly be spared-was
needed. The other members agrefed
with Mr. Wragge when he stated that
he could not see where the tribunal
had any power to grant exemption in
this case. He said that their instructions were definite that they could not.
grant exemption for sentimental1
reasons. Mrs. McKlnnon then asked
that hor son bo exempted until she
could hear from her husband. The
tribunal could see no definite reason
for this action- and decided to disallow
the claim.
Did Not Ask Exemption
H. G. Lawley told the tribunal that
he did not understand why he. was
summoned to appear as ho had never
asked exemption. Ho said that he
had tried to enlist on three different
occasions and had been refused as
medically unfit. He said that, following struotlons laid down by the
military service council, he had filled
in an exemption form as a class "B"
man, He had notMhe slightest intention of evading military service and
he still stood ready to offer his services to his country. He added that
he had again tried within the last few
weeks as a "B'' man and had been refused. Mr. Wragge explained that tho
only way to get around the technicality was for Mr. Lawley to waive all
claim for exemption, which he"
promptly did in writing, Mr. Wragge
said that lt was unfortunate that a
man who had tried to enlist had been
forced to appear beforo a tribunal.
Harry C. Bennett did not. appear
but made claim for exemption In writing. He claimed that his mining interests required his attention. Tho
tribunal decided that his two partners
could look after those interests and
his claim' was disallowed.
•   Suggest Reexamination
3. T. Hbpwood, who iB in Vernon,
did not; appear.and his claim was disallowed, The board recommended
that ho be reexamined, by tiio field
medical, board or the board at Vernon.
K. D. Mcintosh of Salmo stated that
lie tyas.the sole support of a.mother
ahd sister, also two widowed sisters.
He said that he sent from $20 to 940
a month to his mother. Mr, "Wragge
asked him for receipts for bis remittances and he said he had not kept
them lately. The tribunal decided
that tho separation allowance and the
amount- of pay he could assign would
equal the present amount sent to his
relatives and the claim was disallowed.
J. Deo, C ,V. Riley, J. H. Hunter, J.
O. Potter and Thomas Nixon did hot
appear and thoir claims wero automatically disallowed.
Aldermen Deal With Routine Work-
Quarry Employees Ask for
. Increase in Wages
At the regular mocting of the city
council last evening the accounts were
road and passed. The payroll- for the
past two weeks was also passed. A
letter was: read from the president of
tiio Presbyterian Ladies aid asking for
a license to have a refioshrtlent booth
at the city park on May 24. Permission was granted by tho council' to
have the' booth and it was to be
understood that others would not be
barreq if they wanted to conduct a
similar business on that day.
Letters wero read Irom two soldiers
wives In which they asked- for. time in
■which to pay arrears in taxes. The
council decided that both cases were
urgent and that owing to the circumstances it was necossary to let the
accounts stand.
A requeBt was received from the city
employees at tno quarry for an increase of wages owing to the Increased* cbst of living. The qufestioh
was, referred to tho board of public
works .to US' reported on. at tho next
.council meeting.
Clause 295 of the gas bylaw, which
-Was givon its three readings at tho
last meeting, was brought before the
council- for reconsideration and final
adoption.
- Receipts and disbursements up until the end1 of April wore received and
passed. "'"'
Street Car Trouble
. The question of laying off oiVo' car
'for a week or so for repairs was introduced. Several of the aldermen
expressed tho opinion that if permission was not givon tho car would have
to be taken off anyway. It was point-'
ed out by Aid. McDonald that it waff
not fair to keep tho employees of the
street railway up another hour on
Saturday night. He said that the
