CANADIAN TROOPS AT YPRES MADE GOOD SHOWING
ar—
Heavy Loss From Severe Storm In The British Isles
Erzerum Captured By
Russians With Heavy
Loss To Turks
Petrograd, Feb. 17.—An official
report, says that a messenger estimates tlie Turkish garrison at Erzerum, which was captured, and which
was announced yesterday, is put at
one hundred thousand men. It is
also estimated that more than one
hundred thousand gnus were captured.
EARLIER REPORT.
Petrograd, Feb. 17.—Eighteen
tV's at Erzerum have been captured
by the army of the Grand Duke
Nicholas', taking 40,(300 Turks prisoners nnd 110 guns, along with
quantities of supplies.
The Turks are evacuating the
stronghold and are fleeing westward'.

FAR-REACHING   A ICTORY.
Paris. Feb. 17.—The capture of
the Turks stronghold of Erzerum is
declared here to be the best news
received  for many months.
Erzerum is Ihe key to Asia Minor,
and its fall is a deadly blow lo Turkey which will affect all the theatres
of war Including the Balkans. The
Russian victory is of far-reaching Importance.
.Major de Oivrieux states thai tne
conquest is more Important than that
of any other fortress in the world,
as ii dominates all the routes to
Asia. The forts were carried after
five days of unprecedented assault.

$ i
The suggestion that the war might
affect the position of London as financial centre of the world was re-
pudated by Sir Edward llolden, at
the annual meeting of the London
City and Mioland Rank, of which
he Is managing director.
"Not only shall we not lose that
position," he said, "but we shall
greatly improve it."
Referring to the notation in the
United stales of the Anglo-French
loan, Sir Edward 'said: "The Cov-
ei'iiiiieni and people of' the United
Kingdom have been placed under a
great obligation to American bankers
for the magnificent spirit which they
showed in buying straight out of a
loan of such magnitude."
The fall of the German mark was
regarded by the speaker as conclusive
evidence thai Germany's Imports
from Scandinavia and Holland have
been largely In excess of her exports.
He sah., however, that premature
conclusions should not. he drawn;
thai while the situation might ho a
token of exhaustion of German securities, it was possible that Germany
was keeping her gold in order to pay
for imports Immediately after the
war.
Sir Edward llolden said llie Hank
of England had about fifty millions,
the Government 2R,r>nO,000 sterling
in gold, and the joint stock banks
a further large sum; and thai there
was-yet in hoarding a fair amount,
while the country was fortunate in
having a continuous How from South
Africa.
"If, on the conclusion or this war,"
the speaker continued, "we are still
a free market for gold, we shall have
scored a financial triumph as Import-
GEORGETOWN MILL IS
AGAIN CUTTING LUMBER
In a report recently submitted to
the Hon. the Minister of Lands on
conditions in the Cranbrook Forest
District, mention is made of the se-
verity of the weather, the snow-fall
in certain sections of that country
being heavier this winter than for
many years. While this has compelled many logging operators to suspend activities for the time being,
there Is every prospect of a cut of
fifty million feet. Quite a number
of ranchers throughout the district
are taking out logs, the sawmills
buying all that are offered. In the
spring the Columbia River Lumber
Company intend to begin logging
their limits on Bugaboo Creek. It
may be mentioned, as evidence of
the abnormal winter, that the Forest
Service horses, which in former
years ranged in the Wild Horse
Basin, ann around the Upper Columbia lakes, have had to receive special
attention this winter on account of
the deep snow covering the range.
Thaw Came In Time To Avoid Shortage Of Boxes For Fisher-
men. -
The thaw arrived just in hue to
save the fish buyers .from being short
of boxes for shipping. The unusually cold weather froze the source of
supply at the Georgetown sawmill
and the cutting was stopped for some
time. In spite of the fact that there
was a gooo supply ahead, the box industry has become such a large one
that there was every danger of the
supply giving out before the thaw
came. Happily this was avoided and
the fish dealers are again receiving
their boxes without any stoppage.

Hurley, with 16,000 pounds of halibut  reached port yesterday.

Sir Edward askea of Dr, Karl
Helfferich, the Secretary of the German Imperial 'Treasury, "as one old
banker to another," among other
questions, "Whether Germany's
credit balances abroad, against which
she might sell exchange, had been
exhausted; whether her exports had
nol seriously diminished, making li
dl ID cull to provide for the financing
of Imports, and whether Germany
had not Bold nil her American ind

those of Russia?"
"Did Germany pay gold for Rumanian wheat?" asked sir Edward.
"If so, why was this operation nol

GERMANY PLANS
TO ESTABLISH FOOTHOLD
IN SOUTH AMERICA
Revelations Of  Defiance Of Monroe
Doctrine In Possess!) n of Committee 01 United States Senate.
Washington, Feb. 17.—Extraor-
alnary revelations ol the reputed
plans of Germany to es'ablish a foothold ln several republics of the western hemisphere, and in the Danish
West Indies, in defiance of the Monroe Doctrine, are in the possession
of the committee of foreign relations
of the United States Si nale.
The committee is carefully guarding the evidence from publication
because of tlie fear of the effect it
might have upon public opinion. So
impressed were senators with the advisability of suppressing the infor-i
mation that the motion to debate the
Nicaraguan treaty in the open senate,
which would have entailed disclosure
of the German plans, was defeated
by an overwhelming vote.
In defence to the same considerations the proposed Colombian and
Haytien treaties will be debated by
tbe Senate behind closed doors.
The documents in the possession
of the committee purport to prove:
That Germany sought lo establish
a sphere of influence in Nicaragua
by purchase of the inter-oceanic canal
route and the right to establish naval bases.
That Germany sought to gain a
foothold in Colombia by negotiation,
and an inter-oceanic canal concession and the purchase of plantations
and the establishment of a naval
base at Cartagena.
That Germany gained paramount
Influence ln Paraguay by organizing
the army and is carrying out a similar plan in Chile.
That Germany sought to gain a
foothold in Hayti through control of
the customs and the establishment
of a naval base at Moles Nicaragua.
That Germany practically controls
the Island of St. Thomas by lease
from Denmark and has established
there a base of great strategic
value, particularly because of its
proximity to Porto Rico and the
Panama Canal.
The committee also has documentary evidence indicating that, although the European war has interrupted the prosecution of these plans,
Germany plans to resume the efforts
to participate in the affairs in the
western hemisphere as soon as peace
shall be restored.

lit TIES OF REPRESENTATIVES.
A ten-minute speech by Fred Pardee, chief Liberal Whip in the Mouse
of Commons, defined the duty of the
Government and the Opposition at
the present. He was applauded bv
both sides. His opinion was as follows:
"The duty of the Government," he
said, "is to give leading to the patriotic sentiment; to sacrifice all
other considerations in the determination to make Canada's share in the
struggle a worthy and effective one;
sternly and rigorously to banish the
petty and often costly intrigues of
mere party polities and the reprehensible and dishonest tactics of get-
rlch-quick at the country's expense
middlemen; to encourage friendly
counsel and thoughtful and honest
criticism; io legislate With an eye
sins' - t0 the speedy accomplishment
Of the great task of the Empire; to
deal resolutely with every instance
of impropriety brought to its attention by searching public investigation
and improvement in methods where-
ever shown to have been faulty."
"The duty of the Opposition," he
continued, "is to give sympathetic
and hearty support and assistance to
the Government in all legislation
making for Ihe attainment of the National and Imperial objects immediately in view; to pass with the utmost
freedom and despatch all war grants
and all bills designed to make more
effectual Canada's part in the conflict; to bring promptly and frankly
to the Government's attention—and
urge full investigation, and, where-
over possible restitution; to put
aside, for the time being, mere party
criticism and devote its energies
solely to iis foremost responsibility
at this hour, to see to it, Ihat so far
as in its power thai the full measure
of the service and sacrifice of the
people is applied in the most direct,
honest and em.ient manner tn tho
patriotic purpose for which it has
been  so heartily riven."
of   weather  the   West  has  had,   we
I have  had  worse weather  and  morl
I
I ol it.
"The biggest growl about the win
ter comes from Saskatchewan, when
there has been a shortage of coal.
! askatchewan went "dry" a while
ago, and the inhabitants claim 11 hat
l.een Impossible to get fire outside or
(ire-water within. In the East, we
have had coal, both for external and
internal use, but we have had far
more colds than coals. If they have
escaped la grippe lu Saskatchewan,"
they should worry about a little thing
like a shortage of coal.
"What is the Government going
to do about ii? The obvious thing
to do is to fire the weather Man,
"The other day, a petition was
presented to the United States Senate
fifteen miles long. If the West gets
up a petition asking for the dismissal
of the weather man, it will be sc
long that enthusiastic penmen can
be signing it in the West and in the
East at one and the same time."

SEALED  TENDERS  addressed  to*|
VOl R   HOME  TOWN.
If you want to live in the kind of a
town
Like -.be kind of a  town  you like,
You   needn't  slip  your  clothes  in  a
gri|i
And start on a long, long hike.
You'll only find what you've left behind,
For there's nothing that's really new.
It's a knock at yourself when you
knock your town.
It isn't the town; it's you.
Real   towns  are  not   made  by  men
afraid
Lest somebody else gets ahead.
When   everyone   works   and   nobody
shirks,
Von can raise a town from the dead,
And if while you make your personal
stake
Your neighbors can make one, too;
Your town will be what you want to
see.
It isn't the town;  it's you.
