that Canada has now called to the
colors over 200,0011 men. During the
past three months about fifty thousand men have enlisted, and at present recruiting is reported to be brisker than it has been for months past,
especially in the rural districts. During the first fifteen days of December
about 12,300 recruits were obtained,
or at the rate of nearly 1,000 per
day. Of the total recruits obtained
during the fifteen days, Ontario contributed nearly 6,000, or nearly half
the amount enlisted from the whole
Dominion. Quebec furnished about
1,000 recruits, the Maritime Provinces about 1,200, Manitoba and Saskatchewan about 2.200, Alberta,
2,200 and British Columbia and the
Yukon  1,160.

New Westminster, Dee. 23.—Roco
Ferrante, the Italian section hand
who was recently freed from a
charge of murdering Jesse Magoun,
an engineer at the R. C. Electric sub-
staion at Verlder Mountain, has now
been committed on a charge of murdering a room-mate, Nick Tocael, on
Tuesday night.
Ferrante, who was arrested at
Sumas, confessed to the crime. The
officials believe him t0 be insane.
The crime was discoverea by a
section foreman, who yesterday
broke into accused's shack at Cogh-
lan, near Abbotsford. He found To-
cael's body, naked and decapitated,
the  head  being  missing.
Ferrante was arrested yesterday
afternoon trying to get across the
border into the American States. He
had a butcher knife in his pocket,
and when questioned, admitted having thrown Tocael's head nown a
well, where it was afterwards discovered.

The Greek Government later made
representations to the Bulgarian and
German Governments, and received
assurances that the Bulgarian officer
who was responsible for the incident
would be punished.

"Germany, it is understood, declared that notwithstanding the military

(Continued trom Page One.)
emits enlisted for all purposes since
the outbreak of the war totalled
about 198,000 men and 7,000 officers.
This makes a grand total of 205,000
officers and men, including 12,000
men employed on home gaurd duty,
etc., and eight or nine thousand who
have been permanently put out of
commission by death, wounds or illness at the front. Canada's present
fighting army now on active service
is therefore 185,000, all of which has
been raised and equipped in a little
over sixteen months.
Exclusive of the officers, which
would add' about four per cent, to the
total, Ontario has raised about 77,-
000 men, Quebec, 24,000; the Maritime Provinces, 20,000; Manitoba
and Saskatchewan, 37,500; Alberta,
21,200; and British Columbia and
the Yukon, 19,700.
Out of the total of 77,000 men
raised in Ontario, the first military
divisions (London) has raised approximately 15,000, the second division (Toronto) 42,000, and the
third division (Kingston) 20,000.
