No. 6
An aggressive campaign for the due protection of the coastwise
shipping of Canada has been inaugurated by Alex. G. Baillie, of
Port Hastings, C. B. In the literature which he is circulating he
directs special attentiou to the fact that Norwegian shipping is very
greatly in evidence in this trade, and he advocates government aid
towards the construction of a Canadian mercantile marine. While
he deals almost wholly with the coastwise business, his observations
have a general bearing. He has lately drawn attention to some
very remarkable facts. Not very long ago Canada stood fourth
among the shipowning countries in the world; now she stands
eleventh. A few years ago Nova Scotia, with a population of
400,000, owned 558,000 tons of shipping; now Canada, with 8.000,000
people, only owns 896,000 tons. Once the Union Jack flying over
Canadian-owned ships was to be seen in every port of "the Seven
Seas"; now a Canadian-owned ship is a rarity. Mr. Baillie calls
for a bonus of $20.00 a ton on steel ships built in Canada and $4.00
on wooden ships. He cites the following resolution passed in May,
1914, by the Shipmasters' Association, No. 1, of Halifax:
"Believing that the time has come when Canadians should take
a stand as a maritime nation to be restored to their once former
proud position of fourth in shipping among the nations of the
world, that this can best be accomplished by the Government of
Canada granting a bonus, or subsidy, to steel shipbuilding of at
least ten dollars per ton, so that on the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards of Canada she can rebuild a new Canadian mercantile marine,
The natural place for steel shipbuilding is with open ice-free ports
all the year round, but the same bonus or subsidy should apply to
places elsewhere in Canada where there are open ports part of the
We suppose it will be difficult to secure action by Parliament in
this very important matter until the end of the war is in sight, but
the question is one that calls loudly for consideration. A suggestion
is made in one of the papers sent us by Mr. Baillie that a Royal
Commission should be appointed to investigate the matter in all Its
bearings, and this would be as wise a plan as could be adopted at
the present time. The establishment of a Canadian mercantile
marine that will be proportionate to the foreign trade of the country
would be an achievement of the greatest value.
"Fight or Pay"
Vancouver, Sept. 30:���Another
campaign for funds for the Cana-
daian Patriotic Fund must be
conducted in this province and in
the rest of Canada, said Sir Herbert B. Ames, M.P., honorary
secretary of the organization,
this morning to the local branch.
An appeal to the country for
more money to support the dependents of men at the front is
absolutely necessary. The funds
of the organization are rapidly
being depleted by the numbers
enlisting for active service, and
those at home must assist.
Sir Herbert carries with him
numerous posters appealing for
help in the straight-from-the-
shoulder style. "Fight or Pay"
is the command on some of them.
"He who stays at home must pay
to help those who go" reads another. "Belgium paid for slavery. You must pay for freedom,"
"British Freedom or Prussian
Militarism," "Give your money
to the cause, others have given
their lives," such are the commands on others.	
The Miner is two dollars a year.
The Submarine Campaign
The Providence Journal states
some interesting information a-
bout the German submarines. It
says that sixty-seven of these
vessels have been sunk since May
5, and that this is 80 per cent of
the total submarine fleet of Ger
many. The capacity of the
enemy's shipyards is said to be
only three vessels a month, and
great difficulty is experienced in
getting sailors to man even this
limited number of vessels. The
Journal says the chief reason for
German readiness to modify its
under-water campaign at the
demand of the United States was
its inability to carry it on through
lack of vessels.
It is beginning to look as if the
manner in which the British Admiralty dealt with this campaign
must be regarded as one of the
greatest triumphs in its history.
News paper readers cannot have
failed to observe that at no time
since the under-water warfare
was declared against merchantmen has the Admiralty evinced
any apprehension as to its ability
to cope with it successfully.

The $500,000,000 Credit
It is hardly fair to say, as some
do, that the governments of the
United Kingdom and France have
borrowed $500,000,000 in the
United States. What they have
done is to arrange a credit for
that amount. In principal the
transaction is in no way different
from a case where a man, who
may wish to use a sum of money,
goes to a bank and arranges to
draw checks against it. The
bank may let him have it on an
open account or he may have to
put up something as a security.
The United Kingdom and France
can pay in gold for everything
they may want to buy in the
United States, but the shipment
of gold is a clumsy way of transacting business and so steps were
taken to arrange a line of credit.
The deal is a very good one for
both parties. It will be a good
thing for the United States because practically every dollar of
the money will be used to pay for
something produced in that country; it will be a good thing for
the Allies because it will obviate
gold shipment and the consequent
disturbance of the financial market.

Red Crosi Meeting
At a largely attended meeting
held Wednesday evening to consider the matter of organizing a
local branch of the Canadian Red

defer action in organizing the
same until the end of the year.
It was the feeling of the meeting
that organization at the present
time might interfere with the
work of the Women's Auxiliary
of St. Peter's Church, which has
arranged a series of Red Cross
teas, concerts, etc.. to extend
over the balance of the year.
Those who attended the meeting
received a great deal of information regarding the immense need
of materials of the character
required by the Red Cross Society
in the carrying out of its work,
and the practical and complete
way in which the society's work
is organized and being carried
forward. Emphasis was given
to the paramount c'aim of the
society for support at the hands
of every loyal British subject.

German Prisoners Talk
Petrograd: Reports from the
commanding officers show that
German prisoners, despite warnings from their chiefs and threats
of punishment, are giving information more frequently of the
exhaustion of their troops and
the decreasing popularity of the
war in Germany. This statement
appears in the Russian official
communication today. The advices show that heavy fighting
has taken place near Dvinsk,
where Germans captured a few
trenches but were in turn driven
out at the point of the bayonet.
Some small captures by the Russians of men and guns have taken
place. In the Black Sea they
took a motor schooner in face of
a violent fire from land batteries.
A Collective Ultimatum
Paris: The Quadruple Entente
will send a collective ultimatum
to Bulgaria today.
Russia's ultimatum to Bulgaria
is welcomed here as a means of
clearing the situation in the Balkans.
The Entente powers will send
600,000 men to prevent Servia
from being crushed between the
Austrians and Bulgarians, a result
which would allow the Teuton
army to cut through and reach

grenades and bombs near Lihons
and Anechy.
"In Champagne the enemy
continued, with the aid of asphyxiating shells, a bombardment
of the rear of our new front to
the south of Navarin farm and
in the environs of Souain. Our

'The artillery action was almost continuous in the Argonne,

Eparges, in the forest of Apre-
mont, and in Lorraine near Mon-
cel, Arracourt and Ancernviller.
"On the evening of Oct. 4, the

against our posts to the east of
Orbey, in the Vosges, but was
completely repulsed."
Russians Holding Enemy

have been several engagements
on the Riga front.     North of
