GERMANS CONSPIRED TO WRECK WELL AND CANAL
BULGARIAN TROOPS ARE STILL OUTSIDE OF GREECE
The Invasion Of Grecian Territory May Follow Soon
German Patrol Boat Was Wrecked In The Baltic Sea
Invasion Of Greece
By Bulgarians Or
Germans Is Expected
Saloniki, Dec. 17.—The Bulgarian
troons continue to hold their line3
about two miles from the Greek frontier. They show no intention of crossing into Grecian soil.
Anglo-French officers, however, believe the invasion of Greece by either the Bulgarians or the Germans
•will begin within a few days.
In withdrawing his troops from
Saloniki, General Meschopules, of the
Greek army, sent the formal notice
to General Sattall, the commander of
the French forces:
"The Hellenic army has been ordered to retire, for the purpose of
leaving the ground free to the belligerent nations."
Headquarters Changed.
Paris, Dec. 17.—Following the
withdrawal of the Greek troops from
Saloniki to the Serbian border, the
headquarters of the Greek army have
been transferred to Kozhani, 55 miles
southeast of Monastir.
Only a regiment of engineers and
one of artillery remains at Saloniki.
Must Hold Post.
The London Chronicle gives prominence to an article "from a correspondent" discussing the question
"why the Allies will not abandon Saloniki." It says: "To realize why
the Allies have decided to hold Saloniki, it is only necessary to think
out the consequesces of evacuation.
Those   consequences   would   be   dis-
which important political use might
be maa'e hereafter.
"Fourthly, our withdrawal from
the Balkan theatre would be, in fact,
a guarantee of safety to a vital portion of the Greek flank. The enemy's
communications now stretch in a long
line from the Danube to the Persian
gulf. Roughly parallel to that line
of communication and at a relatively
short distance from it the whole way
along, runs the sea, which constitutes
the Allies' chief communication. But
it is in our power to deliver a lightning stroke at the long enemy flank
at any point which we choose, in the
Balkans or elsewhere.
"Finally, to leave Saloniki would
certainly mean handing it over to the
enemy for a submarine base. It
would sot be gross exaggeration to
say that the Germans at Saloniki
might threaten the whole of our sea
communications east of Malta."

LIBERALS DECIDE
TO CONTEST ALL
BY-ELECTIONS
London, Dec. 17.—There was surprise here on the receipt of the news
by cable that Sir Richard McBride
had resigned and would take the
Agent-Generalship of British Columbia.
J. H, Turner, wh0 was Interviewed shortly  after the receipt  of  the
cable,  said  that  he  had  receivea' a
astrous—morally,   strategically   and  cablegram  stating  that  Sir Richard
politically.
"In the first place, It would admit
openly a serious check. The result
•would be exhilaration In Germany
and corresponding depression of feeling in the Allied countries.
"Secondly, the complete abandonment of the Balkans, for that is what
it would mean, might decide Rumania against us. The throwing of
a stale that really at heart Is friendly
to us, into the ranks of our enemies,
would he the most considerable disaster that could befall us.
"Thirdly, It would mean abandonment of Serbia to her fate. Apart
from the dishonor of such a course,
it would  have  the very real  draw-
would arrive in London at the end of
January.
The Agent-General said that they
would likely be able to come to arrangement concerning the Agent-Generalship. J. H. Turner claims that
he was appointed to the post for life
by special act of Parliament.

The Providence Journal prints the
text of an affidavit made by Johannes
Henrykus von Koolbergen in San
Francisco on Aug. 27 last. This affidavit goes into much circumstantial
evidence with regard to an alleged
organized German conspiracy on the
Pacific coast, with the object of blowing up munition plants on which indictments have been returned by a
Federal Grand Jury in San Francisco against Baron George Wilhelin
von Brincken, an attache of the German consulate there; C. C. Crowley
and Mrs. Margaret Cornell, detectives.
The affidavit asserts that Franz Bopp,
German Consul-General at San Francisco, personally supervised the activities of Koolbergen and d'irectel
the alleged attempt to hire him and
blow up tunnels on the Canadian Pacific Railway in May of the present
year.
Worked With C. P. R.
. The affidavit also claims that Bopp
ordered the money for their work,
$1,500, to be paid to Koolbergen under the impression that the work had
been accomplished, when as a matter
of fact Bopp was misled by Canadian
Pacific officials, working in conjuno-
tion with Koolbergen, who caused
stories to be inserted in the Canadian
papers telling of the destruction of
important tunnels by mysterious attacks.
The affidavit declares that George

Excellence Of G. T. p.
Service.
John Hazlitt, of Regina, accompanied by his wife ana daughter, are

farmer from the prairies and has
come to the Pacific coast for the
winter months. His plans after leaving here are not complete. He is a
brother of James Hazlitt, now of

He thinks that the G. T. P. cannot
help attracting a large share of the
tourist travel, owing to the excellent
character of the road and the splendid service that is provided. He ■
speaks of the courtesy shown him on
his way to the coast by the officials
of the line who were on board. Following the holiday season, Mr. Hazlitt expects to see a greater number
than ever come on to this coast for
the winter.
The crop has been a magnificent
one and the price is good. When the
exceptional yield is considered the returns from the land is proving very
high.

KING EDWARD AS
MASTER DIPLOMAT
THE  LATE*SOVEREIGN   PROVED
HIS CLEVERNESS IN INTER-
NATIONAL RELATIONS
Some    Characteristics    Recalled    In
Recent Work Brought
Out.
In his momoirs just published,
Lord Redesdale, the veteran diplomat, gives a description of the famous visit of King Edward to Paris,
which practically established the Entente, despite Ihe opposition of the
British Government:
"Sir Edward Monson, who was at
that time ambassador at Paris, and
who was to meet him at some halfway station, was urged to advise the
King, on reaching Paris, to make a
speech which should tend to concil-l
late those who might be less amiably j
disposed.    His .Majesty gave thp ambassador tn understand that he knew'
quite well  what  he was about,  and
thai he was not afraid of the responsibility   which   he   had   taken   upon
himself.     When   Paris   was   reached I
ites, socks, mitts, Sterno alcohol
lamp, beef cubes, handkerchiefs,
playing cards, tobacco (in all forms),
picture post cards of Rupert, letters,
slippers, books, writing material,
chewing gum, combs, money to buy
socks.

the reception at the station was perfectly polite and courteous, but quite
cold, lacking any sign of enthusiasm.
This I was told by a French friend
who was present.
"Now for the transformation scene.
The King drove straight to the Embassy, where he received a deputation from the British Chamber of
Commerce. In reply to Iheir address
he made a speech in whicli he took
occasion. In those gracious terms of
which he was such a master, fo express his feelings of friendship for
France and his love of Paris, snenk-
Ing of the Joy thai it w.is to him to
flno' himself once more among Ihe
Parisians as one of themselves. The
words iilfr-rod by him circulated like
wildfire, and from tlint moment any
gloom tha( then might have been
(nnd indeed was) had been dispelled,
and the sun shone over a friendship
which paved the way for historic results."

BIG WHEAT SURPLUS
HELD  BY   RUSSIANS
Savings Deposits Arc Very High And
887,000,000.Bushels Of Wheat
To Spare.
The Ministry of Finance at Petrograd has presented to the Council
of Ministers a summary of the economic situation in Russia. The grain
harvest for the current year, the summary states, was 512,000,000 poods
(a pood equals 36 English pounds),
about 350,000,000 bushels above the
five year average. Counting grain carried from the previous season, Russia had available for the current year
4,766,000 poods of grain and potatoes, equalling 3,177,000,000 bushels
the excess of the available surplus
over 1914, amounting to 789,000,-
00ii poods, equalling about 26,000,-
00U bushels.
Deducting tlie probable consumption of the country, it is estimated
that the new available surplus will be
about 887,0.00,000 bushels. Reports
regarding the winter crops are of the
most favorable nature.
According to the statement the financial position of the population is
shown by the growth of savings
hank deposits. October's figures of
these deposits showed the reaching
of the high water mark with deposits
of 74,000,000 roubles, as against 22,-
000,000 roubles in October, 1914.
Since the beginning of the war, it
was announced, the savings of the
people have increased 499,000,000
roubles, and now amounts to 2,408,-
i ,000 roubles.
In spite of the loss of revenues because of the prohibition upon the
sale of spirituous beverages, and a
Diminution in  Imports amounting to
682,000,1   roubles during the last
flscal year, the decrease in ordinary
revenues, Ihe statement says, amounted only to 482,000,000 roubles, increases In revenue from other sources
swelling thc total. During the first
nine months of Ihe current year Rue-
