BETWEEN GREAT RIVERS
A Country Full Of Historic Interest
For Many Thousand
Years.
i
Tbe region between tbe Euphrates
and Tigris Rivers has long borne the
name Mesopotamia, a Greek word signifying the land between the rivers.
Here the Romans and Parthians or
Persians contended for possession, the
advantage resting generally with the
latter. Later the Turks and Persians
battled to gain the territory, the
former finally having the victory.
London, April 14.—General Lake
reports that on the afternoon of
April 12 our forces on the right bank
of the Tigris forced back the enemy's
advanced lines over a distance vary
ing from one and a-half to three
miles. To do this they had to cross
an inundated belt intersected with
deep cuts extending from the Tigris
to Umm-el-Brahm marsh.
On the left bank the water from
the marshes had been driven by a
northwest gale into some of the enemy's trenches. The enemy was
heavily punishd as it took refuge
from the flood in the new positions.
The victory for the British over
the Turks on the Tigris below Kut-
El-Amara a week ago, with General
Lake In command of the British forces, was a decisive one. The Turkish
entrenched position at Umm-el-
Henna was attackeo' and carried at
5 o'clock ln the morning by the Tigris
Corps, General Lake telegraphed, and
the operations proceeded satisfactorily.

But before the day of the Romans,
three thousand years or so before, the
settlements In the Mesopotamia region were the centres of a splena'id
civilization, populous, rich and powerful. Irrigation made the land productive. It was worked by a race of
patient toilers who were enslaved to
first one conquering invader and then
another, like the long-suffering fella- \ which is on the Tigris, about 20

A record price was paid for halibut here yestera'ay when two schooners, the Alvilda, with 10,000, and
the Fram with 13,000, received nine
and three-quarter cents a pound for
their catches. The fish were bought;
by the Canadian Fish & Cold Storage, although H. O. Roberts, ot the
San luan Company, was a close second.
The two catches together made a
carload and were sold together so as
to allow the buyer to get a full complement.. The scarcity of fish is keeping the price very high. It ls reported
that quite a few boats are going out
below.

S. O. Erich, who has been ticket
agent of the G. T. P. here, leaves this
morning for overseas service. He will
spend a few days holidays in the
south before going to the 102nd at
Comox.
Last evening at the Wanderers'
Club a large number of Mr. Erich's
friends, among the employees of the
G. T. P. offices and a number of outsiders, gave him a fitting send-off.
He was presented during the evening
with a purse of money as a mark of
esteem by the friends.

In order to expedite the completion of the sale of the bonds of the
city, so as to ensure the taking up
of the Treasury Certificates before
June, Mayor McCaffery will proceed
south this morning. The represents*
tive of Spitzer, Rorick & Company,
Mr. J. H. Easton is also exhausting
every effort to get the deal completed. He has been engaged at the
city ba'l ever since the completion
of the negotiations leading to tbe
contract to accept the bonais.
The city hall staff, as far as the
City Solicitor, the City Treasurer, and
the City Clerk are conoerned, have
given over their time almost exclusively to the work and bylaws connected with the transaction are being
manufactured at the rate of four or
five a day.
The city council has also had Its
share In the excitement, incident to
the deal. It has been meeting once
or twice a day, adjourning regularly
from day to day to consider and pass
the bylaws. Mr. Easton has expressed great satisfaction at the progress
made, and says it has exceeded' his
fondest expectations.
Now Mayor McCaffery will have
to take up with solicitors and the
Government In the south matters affecting the bonds that are demanded.
In view of the fact that the bond
buyers require that all may be in the
most complete and Incontestible
shape. He will have the debentures
lithographed and prepared, a matter
involving at least 10 days, and will
then proceed direct, It Is expected,

Germans Show Disposition
To Attack British
Front At Ypres
Loudon, April 14.—The Rotterdam
correspondent of the Dally Mail says
that in feeling out the strength of
the British at the Ypres sector, the
enemy received a shock just -before
nightfall.
The enemy delivered a spirited local attack in what was reported to be
a weak British position, but the effort was repulsed after a fierce hand
to hand fight. It is not certain whether the enemy will make many more
of thess isolated efforts.
German troops and guns continue
to arrive at the Yser front, where it
is believed the next great battle may
be expected.

A  Move.
Chief Justice Mathers, of Manitoba, will arrive Jn Ottawa ln a few
day, to urge upon the Government
the adoption of conscription in Canada, says an Ottawa despatch. It Is
unlikely that his request will be
granted by the Government, as public opinion in Canaaa 0n this question
differs very much In the several provinces as It did in Great Britain,
where one portion of the British Isles
had to be omitted from the operation of the Conscription Act.
The only real necessity for conscription in Canada is the distribution of the burden of the war more
equitably among the people. March
recruiting figures show a thousand
men a day are enlisting. This Is a
sufficient response to the demand
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has from the
outset of the war taken strong
ground asainst conscription, and his
supporters In the Province of Quebec have carried on a campaign
against the enactment of such a law.

The marvelous growth of Canadian
trade in the last few years is being
maintained in spite of the war. In
1911, the total trade was $750,000,-
000; in 1914, this had grown to $1,-
billion. while last year, with a war
on our lian,ds, it hart grown to $1,-
200,000,000.' The net debt was less
in 1914 than in 1911, but with the
war there came falling revenues, and
during the fiscal year just ended
there was an increase of $113,000,-
000. This wonderful record is lo a

CANADA'S FINANCE RECORD.
There is  a healthy  and  infectious
optimism about the statements o
the
P
Hun
Minister of Finance to the House of
Commons, when talking of matters
iu connection with the war. Ever
since the first blow was struck at the
opening of hostilities his belief in the
ower of the Allies to overthrow the
has never wavered. But it is
when he deals with questions affecting the Department he administers
so well that he allows himself to
give fullest vent to the optimism that
is in him. Most of us have held
firmly to the conviction that money
would conquer in this war, at any
rate, that the power of money was
or if the immense factors in the
ba . So when Sir Thomas White
tells the country that the financial
condition of the country is sound he
makes the people feel better.
For instance, Sir Thomas told the
House, in the discussion of his war
taxation bill, that the immense army
of 30(1,000 men had now been raised
in Panada for overseas service and
be added right afterwards that Canada could meet the tremendous expenditure entailed, although it would
be heavy. He then boldly announced that if it was found necessary
even big public works that are now
tinner construction would be dropped.
There is no thought of doing that
now, of course, because the,re is no
necessity, but the Minister showed
by his statement that Canada has in
her ordinary revenue much that she
can use in the direction of meeting
war expenditure, if she finds it necessary.
He stated that his aim would be to
finance war expenditures by borrowing for fairly long periods. This
seemed to appeal to the House as
good business. Discussing the problem of civil expenditure, he said this
was a big question. Indeed, he said
that the three greatest problems Canada had to. face were Immigration,
Increased agricultural production
and land settlement, In carrying nut
these the country has to face heavy
expenditures. Sir Thomas added:
-ir we can keep thai well within
revenues then the war \>ill nol be an
unduly serious burden In spile of tho
Increase in the public debt, This year
If iii.' revenues kern up we ""ill meet
ordinal')' und capital expenditures nnd
Interesl on lhe debl nnd also have
Fpren millions to help pny the principal of the war expenditure."
Of course, the war has been a burden, bul for the timsl pari the people are not suffering much because of
It, Probably the majority of the popu.
The ice In the White Sea is beginning to melt. A Copenhagen despatch
to, the Exchange Telegraph Company
says it is expected maritime traffic at
Ai'' 'langel will be re-opened sometime
in April.

SHAPE  DESTINIES
OF  WHOLE  EMPIRE
Prominent British Historian I'm sees
Changes In Imperial
Control.
Sydney Lojv. the distinguished constitutional historian, in The Nineteenth Century, forsees the present
inner war council of the Cabinet becoming the germ of an imperial
Council to shape the destinies of the
Empire. The Dominions, he declares,
are satisfied concerning the origin
of the war, but not certain that they
are satisfied with its conduct.
They will ask themselves whether
they are under any obligation to
perpetuate a system revealing such
serious deficiencies in the day of trial.
The council of war defense and
Eoreign policy will cease to be inter-
Cabinet and it will assume .substantive shape as a Cabinet for Imperial
affairs, wholly unconcerned with the
departments ruling the internal Government of the United Kingdom. The
Cabinet will be somewhat larger than
the war council, though still of manageable size.
There ought to be a minister without portfolio from each of the four
great Dominions. Whether the High
Commissioner should hold this post
or whether colonial statesmen should
be specially appointed is a question
that each Dominion would settle itself. There would be some advantages, though also drawbacks, in attaching the office to the High Cnm-
niissionersliip, which would then attract the ablest political talent and
the most legitimate ambitions of
colonial public life.
The writer concludes by urging the
necessily of emancipating Imperial
defense and foreign policy from their
present entanglement with British
party politics, leaving the common
tffatrs of the realm in tbe hands of
a Ministry not mainly concerned with
n.'illnnul  hill   sectional   interests.

W. GOLDBLOOM
HEADQUARTERS IN THE CITY   AT  HOTEL PRINCE  RUPERT
One of the results of the European
conflict upon hydro-electric undertakings is the proposed development
by the United States Government of
an important power site on the Tennessee River for the manufacture of
power. It is proposed to install 125,-
000 minimum horse-power to meet
all probable ordnance demands for
fixation of nitrogen from the air, and
it is stated that all such demands
may be safeguarded by providing for
an amount of power up to 300,000
h.p. If constructed, the project will
be directed by army engineers, and
will cost about $20,000,000.
As a result of the foreign demand
for electric-furnace products, the
Pennsylvania Water & Power Company is utilizing its off-peak power
for these manufactures, an example
that may be profitably followed by
some of our Canadian hydro-electric
plants. This company had long been
considering ways and means of bettering its load factor and Anally determined that the development of
electric-furnace usage was the natural means of producing tbe desired
results. It was apparent that, to
reap the fullest benefit, these electric
furnaces should be operated by the
power company, to ensure the power
being used in the furnaces as, and
when, the power company saw fit.
Various ferro-alloys and other materials are made most successfully
in the electric furnace. After carefully considering which would be the
traduction andThrift
CANADA from her abundance can help supply the Empire's needs,
and thia must be a comforting thought for those upon whom the
heavy burden of directing the Empire's affairs has been laid'. Gain or
no gain the course 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
thia vast Btruggle. Stress and strain may yet be in store for us all
before this tragic conflict is over, but not one of us doubts the issue,
and Canadians will do their duty in the highest sense of that great
word."—HON, MARTIN BURRELL, MirvMer of Agriculture.
TWTODERN war is made by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, as
•*-"- well as by men and by munitions. While war is our first business, it is the imperative duty of every rr mi in Canada to produce all
that he r—\."- work c*cuhly hnrrl while our soldiers nre in the trenches,
in order thai the resources of the country may uot cn!y be conserve;?, but
increased, for the great struggle that lies before us. ' Work and Save'
is a good motto for War-time."—S/H THOMAS WHITE, Minister
of Finance,

Eye TroublesCorrected
Mr. Bulger has had over ten yearn experience In eight testing
and fitting glasses, and last mid-summer took a post graduate
course, which Included the latest discoveries ln the science of optometry or eye measuring. One of the most imi ortant is dynamic sklametry. The new method of Prof. A. J. Cross, of New,
York, in which the eye is measured by a beam of reflected light
and any error is recorded.
But we do nol simply rely on one method; each eye Is tested
separately, ln three different ways, besides trying the muscular balance, together and the nervous acuteness.
We use tbe new drugless method's, no drops ln the eye and no
heavy frame resting on your face; ours swings from the wall by a
bracket.

MR. HARRY HANSON, Prince Rupert, B. C, April 9, 1914.
"The   Reliable  Plumber,"
Prince Rupert, B. C,
I have great pleasure i.i certifying to  the excellent  hot  water
and heating system that you installed  in our  parsonage,  and  that
after six months of oreration through   the   winter   months   it   has
given every satisfaction.
The system heats a thirty gallon tank of water to boiling temperature in one hour after the fire has been started; it in no way
interferes with the oven for baking purposes. In addition to this,
the wall radiator which you placed in dining-room and connected
with the range boiler has given us splendid satisfaction, supplying
us with ample heating throughout, 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,
(Signed)   (Rev.)  J. F. DIMMICK.
Specelal price for coil for month of March only will be Fifteen
dollars, Ten dollars cash, balance 310 days.
