Reasons  Advanced  Why  Force  Was

At Point.
Critics of the British General Staff
have repeatedly asked, why was Ma-
jar Townshend and his heroic force
at Kut-el-Amara frittered away in
this distant venture when every man
was needed, if not at Galllpoli, at
least in France. No answer has been
made, but with the map and recent
history liefore us, it certainty looks
as though there was method In this
madness, and that the prime objective was to create a diversion so
powerful as,, on the one hand, to detach part of the defenders of Armenia, and, on the other, to relieve
the pressure against Egypt. It. does
look, too, as if both these results
were achieved. This theory would
also explain the otherwise inexplicable temerity of the forward dash
against Bagdad by this trifling force,
hastily raised and equipped in India.
In fact, it fits together the pieces of
the puzzle into a comprehensible
whole.
Bagdad was a great prize; Its fall
must, have been an irreparable blow
to Turkish prestige in the Orient.
This was fully realized in Constantinople, and large forces were detached to Lower Mesopotamia. They
secured their immediate purpose by
driving back Townshend and his gallant little force to Kut-el-Amara, it-

Ottawa, May 2.—Supplementary
estimates totalling $28,282,081 were
tabled in the House of Commons today by Sir Thomas White, Minister of
Finance. These include provision
for a loan of fifteen million dollars
to the C. N. R. and of eight million
to the G. T. P.
There is an additional of $200,000
for teaser River improvements, and
$20,000 for improvements to the
Lower Fraser.
The main votes include $1,500,000
for the new Parliament Buildings.
The loan to the railway companies
referred to, is to aid these roads
pending the investigations to be made
by a commission it is proposed to appoint to go into the whole railway
problem with a nationalization pro-
I ject in view.

will in the near future give control
of the submarine menace.   It says:

F. E. Pays,nn, of the Goletas Fish

in the fishing industry in Prince Rupert, and believes it will make this

A judgment which has been awaited with a great deal of local interest reached the city last night. This
was the decision of Judge Robertson,

West of the River Meuse the activity of the artillery continued
through the night from Avocourt to

is actually interested in the matter.
This company has a capital of $200,-
000, and was Incorporated with an
Ontario charter on February 21 last.
Members of a Toronto legal firm are
the provisional nirectors of the company, but naturally are acting merely
as legal advisors to the parties primarily interested, The company is
authorized by lis Charter to manufacture, buy, sell and deal In all articles
of food and food products.
If placed, tlie order will figure at
about 15 l-6c per can nf stew. The
cans alone, If bought at current market prices, will cosl approximately
$6,000,000, Figuring 1,000 cans per
base box of tin-plate the order would
call for about 600,000 boxes, which
at current market prices would cost
(2,840,000, The tin-plate used In
filling tbe contract would weigh
roughly 300 tons, and weight nf the
cans filled with stew would total 300,-
000 tons. To carry this total to the
Atlantic coast wottlu require 150
trains of fifty standard box cars each.
No single company except the American Can Company could turn out
such a number of cans in a year. Run-

Private Allett was with L, Crip-

were carrying up munitions when
"Crip" was struck. He was killed
practically at once, being almost shot

According lo the returned soldier,
the prospects are of the war being
drawn out very considerably. He
thinks it possible that it may continue for two years longer time.

CANADA'S CONTRIBUTION.
The participation of the manhood
of Canada in the war, directly as
bearing arms and indirectly as munition workers now totals approximately 600, I, The total enlistment
up to the end of March was 295,680,
and as recruiting has been as activt
In April as in March, when the number of men signing up averaged over
1,000 a day, the enlistment up to
date should total at least 310,000.
The number nf people engaged In the
manufacture of munitions in Canada
totalled 275,000 on Marcli 1 last, and
it is certain that many thousands
have been engaged since. Thus, out
of Canada's male population of 3,-
821,996 some S per cent, have donned the khaki, and another S per
cent, are contributing to the direct
prosecution of the war by turning out
shells and other forms of war material.
Taking the male population from
the age of 3 0 to -10 years as 2,505,-
2TS, the number given in a recent
pr liamentary return, tbe men In
k!. ;i now comprise 15 per cent, of
the population, Sir George E. Foster has stated In 'he Commons that
when Canada has enlisted the 500,-
000 men promised to the Empire, 62
per cent, of the male population from
19 to 40 years will remain in tbe
country to carry on the nrdinary activities. Such a number left behind
to keep the wheels of industry going,
and to transact mercantile business
would appear to lie sufficient.
Surgeons state men are slightly
more subject to appendicitis than
women. Prince Rupert people should
know that a tew doses of simple
buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as
mixed in Adler-i-ka, often relieve or
prevent appendicitis. This mixture
removes such surprising foul matter
that. ONE SPOONFUL relieves almost
ANY CASE constipation, sour stomach or gas, The INSTANT, easy action of Adler-i-ka is surprising.

SPELLING HANDICAPS
SPREAD OF  ENGLISH
Would llecomc Wnrhl Language But
For This. Is Opinion.
That a "whimsical mode of spelling" Is the only thine standing In
the «-ay of English becoming the
dominating language of tbe world
was the idea of Dr. D. C. Croissant,
speaking In the reformed spelling
sectioii recently.
He pointed out that for fifteen centuries Latin was the language of diplomacy, of the Church, of letters, of
philosophy, and nf science. Later
French bad supplemented it, but by
the end of the nineteenth century
the supremacy of French had dlsap-1
pcared.
'It is now," br saio. "to be determined what language is to be the
means of International communication in the future."
This, said Dr. Croissant, was tint
tn be settled by lhe peculiar fitness
of the language alone, bul by the
political and commercial position of
the people who Bpeali the language.
The growth of English-speaking people nf the globe had put English second only I,, Russian among European
languages.
But English also had the peculiar
fitness, in Hs cosmopolitan vocabulary, and grammatical simplicity.
Tinl the greal hindrance to the
Bpread of its use was iis spelling, encumbered by many superfluous letters, and confused by the misleading
representation of many sounds by the
Bame Bymbol and by its use of many
symbols for the same Bound,

Seven miles east of Kut is the
strong defensive position of Es Senn.
It was at thia point that the Turkish forces resisted the advance of
Gen. Townshend's army last September. On that occasion the Brilish
found themselves confronted with a
strongly-entrenched position, extending miles on both sides of the river.
The British threw a pontoon bridge
across the river, and, by a rapid
concentration of British forces on.the
left bank, the Turks were outflanked
and turned out of their positions on

Kut last September, Gen. Townshend's army, amounting, it is believed only to a division, or 20,000
men, pressed forward toward Bagdad,
and on November 22 defeated a
Turkish force at the ruins of Ctesi-
phon, 18 miles down stream from
Bagdad. The Turkish forces were
then strongly reinforced by three or
four additional divisions. Gen. Townshend was forced to make a rapid
retreat upon Kut, SO miles distant,
-attacked and harassed all the way by
overwhelming numbers. On the night
of November SO, Gen. Townshend's
column had to fight a desperate rearguard action, which enabled the force
tn reach Kut-el-Amara, with a loss
of about one-fifth its number.
The   remnant    of   the   retreating i

Lord Charles was present to aid at

quite absent-minded.
While Lord Beresford was pouring
tea for an invalid "Jackie," Their

Lord Charles, resplendent In his

GAIN or no gain the cause before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was last
year—they must produce abundantly in order to meet the demands that may
be made, and I believe this to be especially true in regard to live stock, the world's
supply of which must be particularly affected in this vast struggle."—HON.
MARTIN BURRELL, Minister of Agriculture.
THE
FOLLOWING    STATEMENTS    ARE    BASED    ON    REPORTS   CONTAINED    IN
"THE AGRICULTURAL  WAR  BOOK,   1916,"   PUBLISHED  BY  THE
DEPARTMENT  OF  AGRICULTURE,  OTTAWA,   ONT.
LIVE STOCK—The herds and flocks of Europe
have been greatly reduced. When the war is over
there will be a great demand for breeding stock.
Canadian fanners should keep this iu mind.
MEATS—In 1018 Great Britain imported 664,608
tons of beef, mutton and lamb, of which 364,246
tons came from without the Empire. Out of
480,420 tons uf heif only 104,067 tons came from
within the Empire.
The demands of the Allies for frozen beef,
canned beef, bacon and hams will increase rather
than diminish. Orders are coming to Canada.
The decreasing tonnage space available will give
Canada an advantage if we have the supplies.
DAIRYING—Home consumption of milk,butter
and cheese has increased of late years. The war
demands for cheese have been unlimited. The
Canadian cheese exports from Montreal in 1 ti 16
were nearly $6,500,000 over 1914. Prices at
Montreal—Cheese I January 1015, 15'ii lu 17
cents; January' 1016, 18J4 to IS}4 cents.
Duller: January 1916, 24 to 28f"i cents;
January 11)10, 32 to 33 cents,
EGGS—Canada produced $30,000,001) worth of
eggs in 1915 and helped out Great Britain in the
shortage. Shippers as well as producers have a
duty and an opportunity in holding a place in
that market.
WRITE TO THE DOMINION   DEPARTMENT  OF AGRICULTURE  AND  TO  YOUR
PROVINCIAL DEPARTMENT FOR BULLETINS ON THESE SUBJECTS
Ten* of thousands ol Canada's food producers have enlisted and gone to the front. It is only fair to them
that their home work shall be kept up as far as |Kissiblc. The Empire needs all the food that we can produce

MR.  HARRY HANSON, Prince Rupert, B, C, April 9, 1914.
"The   Reliable  Plumber,"
Prince Rupert, B. C,
I have great pleasure lj certifying to  the  excellent  hot  water
and heating system that you installed  in  our  parsonage,  and  that
after six months of operation through   tl.e   winter   months   it   has
given every satisfaction.
The system heats a thirty gallon tank of water to boiling temperature in one hour after tlie fire has been started; it in no way
interferes with the oven for baking purposes. In addition to this,
the wall ladlator which you placed' in dining-voom and connected
with the range boiler has given us splendid satisfaction, supplying
us with ample heating th-oughout the w'nter, saving us the cost of
a stove and fuel.
I most heartily testify to the satisfaction and efficiency of your
system and gladly recommend it.
Yours very truly,
(Sigued)   (Rev.) J. F. DIMMICK.
Speceial price for coil for month of March only will be Fifteen
dollars, Ten dollars cash, balance 30 days. ,
