Turkish Armies Are
Still Pursued By
Victorious Russians
Petrograd, Feb. 22.—Both at the
centre, in the Erzerum district, and
on the widely extended northern and
southern flanks tlie Russians are
everywhere continuing with energy
the pursuit of the routed Turkish
armies.
The Russian advance is having the
effect of not only severing the connections between the now isolated
Turkish army groups, but in con-
S'-ntly strengthening the communications of their own forces from the
Black Sea to the recently occupied
town of Mush, on the southern Russian wing. The operations of the
Russians are assuming a solid unbroken advance along the entire
front. _

Viscount Rryce, tiie head of the

At the Trades and Labor Council
last evening Sergt. Maitland was
given the opportunity of addressing
the meeting.
Mr. Maitland, who has always" interested himself in the welfare of
labor, and who represented labor on
the city council as alderman for a
number of years, took the opportunity of thanking the Trades and Labor
Council for the support and assistance given him while In the city. He
had endeavored to do his best to
serve the interests of labor, assisting
in the organization of different
unions and In the up-keep of a fair
wage. He did not accept nomination
for the city council this year, on account, of his enlisting in the service
of his country, but If he returned
to the city, which he hoped to do, he
would again assist the Trades and
Labor Council in every way possible.
The President, S. D. Macdonald,
thanked Sergt. Maitland on behalf of
the Trades and Labor Council for the
able assistance that had been rendered organized labor by him, and
although regretting his leaving,
wished him every success ano a safe
return.
The question of the endorsation of
the bylaw to increase the rate of interest to 6 per cent, on debentures
was raised last evening. After considerable discussion it was decided

HONORS WON BY
WIRELESS MAN
h. .i.  arnold. Formerly at
IKEDA, WON II. S. O,
IN WAR
His   ActHin   Considered   To   Be   Of
The Highest
Order.
The news that H. J. Arnold has
been" made a companion of the Distinguished Service Orner will be of
interest to residents on the coast. Up
to October, 1914, Mr. Arnold was in
charge of the Dominion wireless station at Ikeda, Queen Charlotte
Islands.
Mr. Arnold entered the Canadian
Government wireless service in June,
1911, being first employed as an operator at Triangle station and then at
Cape Lazo. During one of the heavy
gales .at ithe Triangle station the
aerial halyards were carried away.
Operator Arnold volunteered to
"shin" up the 200 feet mast and
reeve a new halyard. This he ac-'
complished, by no means an easy nor
safe exploit.
Later Mr. Arnold was transferred
to Ikeda station as officer in charge.
When the war broke out he had ambitions, chief amongst them being to
work wireless from an aeroplane. He
applieo and obtained permission to
resign, paid his own way to England,
and joined the R. N, A. S.
Incidentally it might be mentioned
that no boat was leaving Ikeda in
time for Mr. Arnold to make connections wilh an Atlantic vessel he proposed to take. Nothing daunted, lie
proceeded across Hecate Straits and
Queen Charlottee Sound in a 16-foot
boat equipped with an Evinrude en-

ARNOLD MADE
STATEMENT AH TO
WRONG DOING I
The steam whaler Orion, belonging
to the Victoria Whaling Company, is
being fitted om to engage in fishing.
Capt. George Heater, of Victoria, who
has been into port here with halibut
boats, will be in commond.
The whaler is now in the hands
of workmen who are busy making
the changes necessary for her new
occupation. The work is, proceeding
rapidly, and it is expected that she
will get away at the beginning of
next week. A number of alterations
have to be made, as her hold will lie
changed in order to carry catches of
fish, and the whale winch and gun
will be removed.
The Orion will first be sent to
the west coast ot Vancouver Island,
but no definite plans have been decided upon regarding the future
scene of operations.
Th» Orion was brought out to Victoria in 1905, one year after she was
completed. She was built at Chris-
tiania, Norway, in 1904, nnd was the
first of the steam whalers to arrive
here, since her arrival the fleet has
been adedd to from time to time. She
is a vessel of 109 tons gross, 94 reel
long, 17 feet beam ano 10 feel deep.

Vancouver, Feb. 22.—Hon. w. j.
Bowser, Premier of the Province, returned here today from Kamloops. He
Is very much Improved in health as
a result of his stay at Kamloops,
The Premier will slay over In Vancouver until  alter  the  by-elections.
Speaking of the situation politically, he expressed confidence that Hon.
C E. Tisdall will he returned by a
large majority on Saturday.
He denied any intenlion to repudiate the undertaking given by Sir
Richard McBrlde, regarding a prohibition plebiscite.
This latter statement meets the
charges that are being made by the
Opposition in Vancouver, that Mr.
Bowser was not going to be bound
by Sir Richard's promise, but would
consider himself free to refuse to be
guided by it.

Its truthful picture of American ambitions and sentiments has nt vei been
excelled, In story, play, or even in
actuality. The oetailed story of this
notable feature, now Ihe chief 'attraction at the Westholme Theatre
is as follows:
In their quiet little farm home, Esmeralda  lives   with   her  father  and
mother.    For    Esmeralda    and    her
father the little home means content-
! nii'iii and peace, but for the mother
| il   is quite tiie  opposite.    She longs
: fur .i  life in the society of the city
and  for the  adulation  of  people in
Another and greater joy enters the
heart of Esmeralda when shi . alizi i
I that she loves nnd is loved by her
childhood companion, Dave Hardy.
\\T ii tht good '. '.v - reaolhi s (he - ai's
i f her father, he is happy, but the
mother shows clearly that she has
greater ambitions for her daughter
than io marry her off "to a farmer
to slave and drugde all her life as I
have done."
Then, from oul of the sky, comes
the wonderful discovery that ore has
heen found in large quantities on the
little farm. The mother then prepares to enter the life for which she
always yearned, and after telling
Dave that a marriage between himself and Esmeralda is now out of the
question, she leaves for the city.
Dave, realizing also that he has now
no tight to Esmeralda's hand, starts
out for the same city to win "a name
for himself" and return to claim her.
The last farewell to the old home
for Esmeralda and her father is a
heart-breaking one. The little farmhouse is part of their very lives, and
it Is difficult to believe that they must
say goodbye to Its simple comfort—
perhaps forever.
Dave, after a bitter but futile fight
in the city, admits to himself that he
is a failure, and reconciles himself to
the life of his ancestors on the old
farm, while Esmeralda and her father
are quile lost in the maze of the artificial life of which they are now a
part, with only the mother supremely
happy.
Tlie Income from the lease of the
i farm enables the mother to purchase
a magnificent homo in the city and to
employ the services of a society woman to teach them, the rules or re-
I finer, etiquette.    From this point the
■lay progresses to the nighl or their

BRITISH CREDIT
Bache  &   Company
York, in the review of the situation
pays a compliment to Britain's credit,
which  this house puts as practically
unlimited.    The review says:
The British Chancellor, in bis
statements to Parliament last December, estimated the holdings of American   sei urities   In   Great   Britain   at
from  $1,500, , I   to  $4,000,000,-
". and ■ spressed the hope that the
sun would change in the United
Stati - foi the I eriod of the war.
The gross cosl of the war to Great
Britain does nol 30 much concern
that country, as the part of thai cost
which needs to- he paid to other
countries for the necessities of life
and for munitions and manufactures
a large proportion of which are
cO'  Ing from this country.
." mobilization of American seem Hies is a movement in preparedness, which will go a long way to-
wai-Qs providing for this part of war
posts. As to general costs, on the
ability of the Government to borrow,
based upon the great wealth of the
country, there is practically no limit
from the viewpoint of probable needs.
The after-effects of a great national debt will have to be met, but
by additional taxation the Government is paving the way. England's
total revenue before the war was
around $900,000,000 to $1,000,000,-
000 annually. Owing to the steady
growth of taxation, ii is estimated
that receipts from revenue for the
fiscal year to March 1st will approximate $1,500,000,000 and over, and
for the following year, swelled hy
large taxes on war profits, will increase to around  $2,000,000,000.
THE RATE OF INTEREST.
li Is proposed to increase ihe rale
of Interesl on the serial bonds of the
city from 5 per cent, to ii per cent.
This proposal, we learn, is being mis-
