VOL. V, NO. 13
Canada's first domestic loan, a
war issue of $50,000,000, which
has been awaited with great interest, is now open for subscription. The prospectus, which
appears today in the advertising
columns of The Miner, presents
a most attractive security, backed
by the illimitable resources of
the Dominion of Canada, and
paying between 5| and 5i per
cent per annum, a rate of interest which, until these days, was
unheard of in connection with
governmental issues of such a
class as Canada can offer.
The subscription list opened on
Monday, and early in the week it
was evident that there would be a
large over-subscription, with the
possibility that the list would be
be closed before Nov. 30, the date
announced. The banks of Canada are subscribing for $25,000,000
or over, leaving only half the
issue for the subscriptions of
other financial institutions and
the general public. There can
be no better investment than the
federal government is now offering, while the denominations of
the bonds and the terms on which
they may be procured make it
possible for investors of even
small sums to participate in the
patriotic loan."
A Discouraging Sign
London, Nov. 24:���"I know
nothing more disheartening than
the announcement recently made
that the United States���the one
great country left in the world
free from the hideous, bloody
burden of war���is about to embark upon the building of a huge
armada, destined to be equal or
second to our own," said Lord
Rosebery, presiding at the Rhodes
lecture in the University of London today.
"It means," he added, "that
the burden will continue on the
other nations and be increased
exactly in proportion to the fleet
of the United States. I confess
that it is a disheartening prospect
that the United States, so remote
from the European conflict should
voluntarily in these days take up
the burden which, after this war,
will be found to have broken, or
almost broken, our backs."
London: The retirement of the
main Servian army to the borders
of Albania and Montenegro has
been successfully accomplished.
The Bulgarians have abandoned
their advance on Monastir, and
are now concentrating, apparently, for an attack on the Franco-
British forces advancing along
the Vardar.
The greatest attention is being
centered on the new army of
Russians, which is expected to
attack through Roumania or by
way of the Danube. Reports
say General Kuropatkin will be
in command.
Other Russian forces, from
Sebastopol to Odessa, will descend
on the coasts of Bulgaria and
Important additions to the
British forces landed in Saloniki
yesterday. Lord Kitchener has.
arranged with Greece for the
landing of Allied troops at other
ports in the Aegean.
London: It is stated that the
Roumanian government has refused a request of the Austrian
and German governments for
permission for German warships
Australia's Big Army
Melbourne, Nov. 24 : ��� The
commonwealth government has
decided to raise an additional
50,000 men. This will bring up
the Australian contingent for
war to 300,000.
to proceed along the Danube
river toward Galatz. It is supposed here that the request was
due to a desire upon the part of
the Teutonic allies to menace the
Russian concentration in southern
Bessarabia from Galatz.
London: The latest exploit of
a British aviator has cut communication between Constantinople and Bulgaria. The airman
planted a bomb which blew up a
bridge on the Orient railway.
Today's despatches report that
a Zeppelin was brought down by
Canadians in Flanders.
Rome (official communication):
"In the valley of the Concel,
on the evening of the 24th, the
enemy attacked our positions on
Mount Vies, This attack, which
was preceded hy an intense artillery preparation, was repulsed.
"On the heights northwest of
Gorizia the action continued yesterday, Stubborn counter-attacks, renewed several times,
failed to prevent our troops from
consolidating the positions they
had reached, and gradually extending them,
"On the Carso front yesterday
morning the struggle was accentuated along the spur which runs j
from the northern slope of Monte
San Michele toward Isonzo, between Peteano and Boschini.
This spur, which the enemy secured owing to his abrupt attack,
was reconquered By us, and now
remains solidly in our possession.
"We took forty unwounded
Delhi: An official despatch
received here shows that General
Nixon's British forces, having
secured a water supply, reoccu-
pied Ctesiphon, near Bagdad, on
the afternoon of Nov. 24, without
opposition. Besides prisoners,
the British captured a large
quantity of arms and ammunition.
British aviators, the report
adds, say that the Turks are
apparently preparing fresh positions at Dialah.
London: A despatch tells of a
victory by General Nixon's army
which is now encamped on the
site of the Turkish camp, after
taking 1300 un wounded and 2500
wounded. The advance under
General Townsend continues.
Glowing reports are being received from Grouse mountain,
the new Bulkley Valley mining
district, where five claims were
recently bonded by R.P.Trimble.
Pete Powers and partners, the
contractors, are working on these
properties, with results of a most
encouraging nature. On Monday
last the shaft was down thirty
feet, all in solid ore, carrying excellent copper values which appear to increase with depth.
It is impossible at present to
judge the width of j;he lead, as
no walls have been found.
The present shaft .will be continued to the 100-foot level,
which is likely to be reached before Christmas.
Development on a large scale
is being arranged for and will be
started soon after the holidays.
Mining men will watch with the
greatept interest the opening up
of this prospect, which shows
every idnication of becoming a
big mine,

Canada's Live Stock Industry
In  competing for the markets of the world there is no branch : gg
of industry that exceeds in importance that of live stock  breeding! g}
and raising.    Paraphrasing the old Jingo cry, we have the land,we i K
have the will and we have the climate.     What is needed is the i *
I '&
means,   and  ever  more  means,   and  simultaneously the ways of I ~J
marketing.     However divergent in views and theories people may j g
be, it cannot be denied that they are all united in a common  effort| gg
to improve both agricultural and industrial conditions.     In helping! jg
the one the other is being aided.     The interests are inextricably i *
involved.     If either is especially prosperous both ultimately   must1*
be,  although  one may feel the benefits of extra demand and high
prices before the other.
In  the past few years especially, all provincial governments,
as  well  as the  Federal  government,   have bent  much  of their; ;a
energies towards the improvement and  extension of agriculture.   |gf
While a deal of scientific effort has been devoted tothe cultivation ' ftjj
of the land and improvement of productions of the soil,   sight  has  13
��� I IB
not been  lost of the needs and necessities of that other branch ot \ w
inestimable worth���live stock, meaning thereby horses, cattle, f **
sheep and swine. In the latter direction pure-bred animals have! ���
recently been placed in various districts where their services were. g
previously difficult to obtain, the registration of pedigrees has been j
nationalized, systematized and subsidized, grants towards greatly
liberalizing the premiums at exhibitions have been made, a special j
branch has beer, established in connection with the experimental J
farm system at Ottawa to investigate the cause of disease, to give!
counsel to breeders and to control outbreaks of infectious ori
contagious ailments. Judges and lecturers have been appointed, J
free of cost, cold storage facilities have been arranged and refrigerator cars equipped and paid for. Grants have been made under,
the tremendously beneficial Agricultural Instruction Act, with its
ten-million-doilar attachment, for the encouragement of veterinary
education and research'and everything possible has been done for
the development and increase of co-operation.
Important and valuable as are and have been the efforts above,
enumerated in the interests of live stock breeding, the devotion of
the Federal department and the provincial departments has ueen i
by no means limited to them. In fact, as far as present human
ken can travel, little has been left undone, But one of the greatest
lines of endeavor has yet to be mentioned, namely, the improvement
of marketing and transportation facilities.      VV

ile this object has|ed as follows:
never been lost sight of, constant attention having been   bestowed;
upon  it in   various  ways,   it remained   for the present Dominion
minister of agriculture to take the matter boldly into bis own hands
and,  with  the assistance of a capable stall',  to devise a policy
calculated to lead to definite, distinct and permanent advancement.'
Without inquiry and investigation nothing can be methodically and
satisfactorily accomplished,   With this principle in view,a marketing
commission  was appointed,   the duties of which were lo ascertain
advantageous  points of sale and to effect and bring about the most
convenient and  economical arrangements  for disposal, shipment
and carriage to destination.     It  was in following this policy that'
negotiations were carried on for the purchase by the1 British govern-,
ment of six and a half million pounds of meat  canned  in  Canada.

recently in exportation and even in handling across the continent.
It is towards remedying these and placing matters in a much
better light and on a greatly improved footing that the commission
has been created. In many ways there is evidence that this is
being accomplished, although undoubtedly there are obstacles to
overcome that will be continually cropping up.
Nor is the appointment of the marketing commission the only
step that is being taken for the advancement of the live stock and
agricultural interests, but a commission of influential, widely-known
and experienced business men has been appointed to go into the
whole subject and report upon the most advisable measures to be
taken for the advancement of farming, breeding and raising,
shipping and selling and financing, and for the aggregate prosperity
of the country.
