rasmWD
London, March 3.—After a temporary lull the Germans have launched violent attacks along a wide front,
north and northeast of Verdun. These
attacks have been preceded by a tornado of shell fire directed especially
in the region of Fort Douaumont.
French statements report that the
German atttacks have been repulsed'.
The Teuton lines have been decimated by the French Are.
Apparently the Germans have now
been able to bring up some of their
heavy artillery. Meanwhile the effort to lighten the pressure against
the French is necessitating the diversion of large forces.
The British struck a sudden and
powerful blow against the Germans
in the Ypres district. The offensive
resulted in a capture of 800 yards of
trenches, taken by the Germans in
February.

HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS HELD

With The Demands Of
Prohibitionists.

and"God Save the King."
The reply of Hon. XV. J. Bowser,
Premier of this Province, to the delegates of the prohibition leaders, who
met him a few days ago in Victoria
and which was briefly summarized
in despatches received here is given
as follows In the World, the organ
of the prohibitionists:
Mr. President and Gentlemen:
I will try and give you the decision
of the Executive Council as clearly
and in as explicit a way as possible,
without any added phraseology, so
that we may all have a common understanding of the decision that we
have arrived at. I think that you
will find, after hearing the decision
of the Executive, that the new Government's course has been a consistent one since we took office on December 15 last, although we may not
have met the views of the ardent
Prohibitionists, who, perhaps, have
not been as patient with the Government as we think they should have
been, consiaering the conditions surrounding the whole question, and
particularly on account of my absence
from the City of Victoria.
Not In Favor Of Direct Legislation.

in   reference   to   referring   an   act

ALASKA MAY HAVE

The Proposal Is To Supplement Mails
With Light
Freight.
■After many years of faithful service, the Alaska mail dogs,—those of
them that have not been "conscripted" for service "somewhere in
France"—may get a well earned rest
next winter, says Jack Underwood in
the Seattle Times. The United States
Government has called for bids for
the delivery of mall by aeroplanes In
all Alaska towns not open to steamship service. N
A syndicate of Alaskans is now in
California arranging for the construction, and, in the event of the
syndicate being unable to get favorable contracts for mail a'elivery, it
will be used to carry gold from the
interior each year, after the transportation by water has been suspended.
Should a mail contract be made
with the government a fleet of aero
; lanes will be built this spring and
summer. Every year more than $1,-
''OO.OOO is taken out by the miners
of Idatrod and other interior camps,
after navigation is closed, and this
gold usually is hauled out by dog
teams, the journey requiring several
weeks. The Alaskans figure that the
saving of interest on the money,
while the bullion is in transit, would
pay the cost of operation of an aero-

The month of February was not a
I specially good month  as far as fish
I receipts at this port were concerned.
I The  season  was  rather  against  the
I lisliing enterprise.    Nevertheless over
a million and a-half pounds of halibut   were landed here, and  well  on
for a million pounds of herring came
Into port.
The total catche of halibut was 1,-
648,400 pounds, which at "> cents a
pound represented $82,170. This
value Is far below the real one. inasmuch as S 1-S cents has been paid
tlie fishermen for some time.
In herring the catch was 87.",000
pounds, valued at one cent a pound.
This herring was for bait for the most
part.
In addition to these, there was
brought into port 38,100 pounds of
cod; 6,000 pounds of salmon and 1,-
000 pounds of crabs.
The total amount of fish brought
here was 2,563,500 pounds, which
in a season when the weather was bad
for a considerable time Is very creditable.

Berlin Depressed By
Reverses At Verdun
Demands Bread And Peace
London, March 3.—It is reported -
from Berlin that the great German
losses at Verdun, in spite of the attempts of the German press to be
cheerful, has caused a general dejection, especially amongst the women. Last night a crowd of 10,000
marched along Unter Den Linden,
crying "breao and peace."
Mounted police had to be used to
dispense them.
To Fight German Trade.
British, French, Russian and Italian representatives are to meet shortly to decide the means to fight the'
German trade after the war.
Change Of Policy.
That important changes are impending in the government's fiscal
and commercial policy Is the deduction the London morning papers draw
from Chancellor McKenna's speech at
the Comml/'-lal Congress.
The Standard remarks that the
position of most of the members of
Parliament relative to free trade and
kindred questions has been alterea
and broadened by the lessons of the
war.
"The whole atmosphere of the
House of Commons," says the Standard, " is slowly changing. Tariffs,
subide and preferential duties are
no longer shunned by the Liberal
party. It Is expected that Mr. Mc-
Kenna, before presenting the budget,
will give Parliament some concrete
examples of the application of his
new policy for the development of
foreign trade. He has counselled with
the experts and has a sound, well-
defined plan. Moreover, he noes not
intend to wait for the end of the war
before putting into effect policies intended to assure that Germany shall
never regain her lost markets.
"A wall against German overseas
trade will be built, while the military
Issues of the war are still being
fought. The governmenl intends, that
Instead of Germany being able to
flood the markets after the war, she
shall find no markets lo flood. Mr.
McKenna's policy will he a policy of
anticipation  and  development,"

FAVOR TARIFF REFORM.
The movement for tariff reform is
gaining strength daily in Great Britain, says a special correspondent of
the Daily News of Toronto. Even
Free Trade purists of the Manchester
school are beginning to appreciate
that Protection is a defensive as well
as a commercial policy. The refusal
of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce to accept the Board of Directors' annual report is an event of
prime importance. A poll is now being taken of the members of the
Chamber and ballots are returnable
soon. The Manchester Guardian obviously is apprehensive of a majority
in favor of a protective tariff.
In the meantime, Lord Cromer, one
of the most distinguished members
of tr« old Unionist-Free Trade group,
in : i tter to The Spectator, express-
es agreement with an article in favor
of a general tariff which appeared in
a recent issue of The Spectator. Mr.
E. S. Montagu, Financial Secretary
of the Treasury, speaking in Cam-
brioge, advised his Liberal friends
"to keep an open mind" on the fiscal
system, " the wliole of which would
have to re re-arranged after the war,"
while Britain's relations with the
overseas Dominions will have to Ix)
considerably altered.
Such declarations are of extreme
importance, not only as indicating a
change in official opinion, but as
showing the miracle wrought on the
Free Trade mind by the fact of the
war.

FOREST PROTECTION AS
IT AJFFECTS CANADA
Interesting    liejKii-t    Published    By
Commission Of Conservation
Ot»Siib.iect.
According to press reports, Sweden
proposes to cut off the export of
chemical pulp to Great Britain, Naturally all eyes are immediately
turned to Canada to supply the
threatened deficiency. The Commission of Conservation has just Issued
a report on "Forest Protection in
Canada, 1913-1914," which Is of pa--
tlcular interest ln this connection. It
contains much information respecting the work of the provincial forest
services and of the federal departments intrusted with the care of our
forests.
Forest fire protection is assuming
a large place in public attention. It
is obvious that, If Canada is to continue as a wooQ-producing country,
she must conserve her resources of
this natural product. The report
treats exhaustively of the lire protection of forest lands along railway
right-of-way. Through co-operative
action, great headway has been made
in securing the reduction of forest
losses through fires traceable to railway causes.
The forests of British Columbia
and on Dominion lands in the West
have been dealt witn in reports containing the results of special studies
conducted by Dr. C. D. Howe and
Mr. J. H. White. The Trent watershed in Ontario, has also received
especial attention, in a report of an
investigation by Dr. C. D. Howe in
the townships of Burleigh and Me-
thuen. This district Is important in
that, while of very little value as an
agricultural area, it is being repeatedly overrun by forest fires and the
1'ttle remaining merchantable timber
destroyed. It is suggested that the
area be placeo under the control of
the Dominion Forestry Branch for
protection from fires an*' for reforestation.

terms of the Alberta Act is not of
course, as you know, in accordance
with the policy of the Conservative
party, that is to say, we have not yet
been educated up to the point that
we are in favor of direct legislation.
Some of the eastern provinces have
followed that practice, which I think
has originated principally in the
States to the south of the boundary
line, and the Liberal party in this
Province is now about to follow the
practice of direct legislation. We as
Conservatives have not yet come to
the conclusion that it Is the proper
way to enforce the responsibilities of
a cabinet or of an assembly. We think
that it would, to a certain extent, do
away with responsible government
and that in very many cases it would
lead to the referring to the people of
very many questions which they
would find unnecessary, after a petition might have come up.
I do not say that in the case of
Prohibition. Perhaps this question
may be a larger one and may call for
more than usual thought, but in
order, as a new leader of the, party,
to keep inviolate the principles of the
Conservative party as we now have
them, I think perhaps a middle or
compromise course might be adopted
in this case without our actually
meeting your suggestion that we
make a reference in the way spoken
of by you.
To Aid In Framing Bill.
Now I do not on the other hand
think that the Government should be
asked to necessarily refer an act op
the basis of the Alberta Act or the
Saskatchewan Act or any other act.
But what I think can be done, is that
the Government could draft an act
with the assistance of yourselves or
yojr committee which might not necessarily be an Alberta Act or a Saskatchewan Act, but might be a Hugh
John Macdonald Act, for instance.
I don't say that it would be, but
the fact of it being a Hugh John Muc-
rtonalil Ai-t would be palatable, of
course, to any of the Conservatives.
(Laughter and applause.) But it
seems t0 me that the Government
ought not to orop away from its
policy. The idea of the Government
would be to draft an act in my department in order to bring your views
before the people and we will be glad
to have your committee or your solicitor in order to have the very best
possible act hi reference to Prohibition, which would be left to the electors of this Province to decide upon.
To Re Submitted To The People.
I do not think that I can put it any
clearer than that. You saw my liquor
act which I take some personal credit
for, and which was known as the
Bowser Act locally, and I do not see
why we should not have a liquor act
perhaps better than the Saskatchewan
Act—I do not know whether better
than the Alberta or perhaps better
than the Hugh John Macdonald Act—
but have an act that might be termed
the Bowser Act, which you will agree
upon and that act will be submitted
to the people.
Now we waul, of course, to place
before  the  people  in  this  act  your
vlows and It will be for the people to
decide whether they will have prohi-
I bllion in this Province or not,
Tho matter has boon llio subjecl of
j so much public debate that all thq
I people arc educated up lo n certain
standard anil I here is a great deal of
interest being taken in it, anil If :>
man has sullli-ipiil Imprest to go to
vote for any candidate, and under the
circumstances does not sec fit to ask
for a Prohibition ticket to vote either
(or or against It, then in that case
we will not consider his vote at all.
But the majority of the votes oaBt on
the Prohibition question will decide
the matter.
To Be Effective January First.
It is the decision of the Government, as early as possible, to place
this act, containing your views, before
the House, and have it carried to
its third reading this session, and, of
course, there will be a section In the
act whioh states that It will come into operation after the people have
approved   it.     If  approved,  this  act
will come into force on  the fust of
January next.
Effective No Matter Who Wins.
There is one advantage abom that,
that it does not make any difference
what happens in the general election
—which of necessity takes place this
summer—which party is returned,
whether Conservative or Liberal. No
session could be held before the first
of January after the people approve
of the act that we pass this session—
and without any reference to what
the color of the next House may be,
this act will become law at the next
session. This will also meet your
wishes and our own, namely, that the
matter will be kept out of party politics.
As to the next question of the as.
sistance to be given on the day of
the polls to see that the proper vote
is recorded, you can rest asBured
that, as Mr. Nelson said this morning,
the same assistance will be given
your people to have their votes recorded as we would give for recording the votes on election day for any
of the candidates.
Carry On Straight Majority.
And now the next question is of
the majority. There has been a difference in the majorities in local option in Ontario. They require a different majority there, larger than
anywhere else, even larger than in
Manitoba. The only plebiscite since I
have been in the Legislature was the
time when we referred the question
of local option to the people. The
policy then laid down by the Government was that all those voting in the
poll on election day for the election
of candidates and who did not vote all
all on the local option ticket were
counted in the grand total as against
the measure."
Now, in order that there may be
no mistake about this matter, I propose to write a letter to Mr. Rogers
setting out the views of the Government upon the question, so that there
will be no suggestion or misinterpretation of the statement which I am
making this afternoon, which must
necessarily be more or less defective,
Bars To Close Early.
Now the question of the act coming into force next January, providing it is carried by the people (of
course if it is not carried by the
people it drops there), the Government feels that the conditions caused
by the war have so sobered the people and given them a different viewpoint, as Mr. Malkin very properly
put it this morning, when he made
the suggestion that the soul of the
people hao really been stirred upon
all moral questions, that It seems
to me there should be, as you suggest,
amendments to the Liquor Act to
come into force at once this session.
These, of course, will be of a most
stringent nature and will deal with
several questions, some of which you
have mentioned this morning. As regards closing hours and any other
Important amendments which I think
will be improvements to the Liquor
Act, these will be in force during the
war and the war only. The war will
not probably he over next January
(we regret to say), and if the Prohibition Act comes Into force it "ill
obviate the necessity for further
amendments, bul If II does nol mo<'t
the approval of the people, ihon these
Liquor Acl amendments will be in
force "inil the end of the war.
I'n Apply To clubs.
The suggestion which i make as to
amendments to tlie Liquor Acl we
also propose to make applicable in
clubs. I don'l see why they should
be in any different position from the
hotels ai this time. (Applause.)
W'H Enforce Law Stringently.
And 1 think you will be very well
satisfied with the amendments that
we have to offer to the Liquor Acl
which will be introduced in the very
early stages of the session. I know
that '.'. ]..'» been suggested before that
you would give every assistance that
you could lo the Governmenl In conned ion with the framing of this act,
and you may rest assured from my
past reputation as a legislator, and
particularly on Hie question of liquor
legislation, thai It Is not only the

executive offices at Fairbanks, the inland terminal.
Under the present plan, Fairbanks
mail in summer, is taken to Skagway
from Seattle and then shipped to
Whitehorse by railroad and thence to
ii.; destination by river steamboat.
The commission's maiNoriginating al
Seward or Anchorage was sent south
to Skagway and requently to Seattle to catch a vessel bound for Skagway, thus occupying about sixty days
for Ihe delivery of a letler and an
answer thereto. With an aeroplane
oelivery from Valdez the time consumed would be from six to eight
days. Members of the commission
estimate that the introduction ot
aeroplanes will save the government
many thousands of dollars each year.
, Isolated by the frozen Bering Sea
for eight months in the year, Nome
Will receive greater benefits than any
nf the other towns from the aerial
mail service. Ordinarily the mail to
the Bering Sea metropolis is thirty tq
forty days in transit from Seattle.
This time will be cut down to ten
days.
From Kaltag to Nome is one of the
worst divisions in the Alaskan service. The coast of Bering Sea is frequently swept by blizzards. Mushers
regard this as the most dangerous
part of the journey, and it will be no
less risky for the aviators in the'
aerial service.
The syndicate cf Alaskans which
brought the project to the attention
of the government has recently tested
a biplane that carries 1,000 pounds
of useful cargo in addition to Its aviator, gasoline and equipment. It is
believed that with a fleet of this class
of machines, if provided with suitable
landing places and machinists to
make necessary repairs, a dependable mail service can be established.

The introduction of a fleet of flying
machines in Alaska will be hailed with
general rejoicing by interior Alaskan
cities, both winter and summer, especially Idatrod ana Fairbanks. In
summer, mail to these points is sent
by steamship to St. Michael, then up
the Yukon River and its tributaries.
It usually takes a letter from twenty to thirty days to travel from Seattle to Fairbanks and about the same
period of time Is lost between Seattle
and Idatrod. With aeroplanes operating from the coastal towns this
time will be cut down more than 70
per cent.
The routes over which the govern-
menl 'ns called for contracts for the
delivery of mail, per aeroplane, are

the very best act that we can, so that
it will be effective. And if this act
is carried by the people I can only
tell you in conclusion that I will use
my every effort so long as I remain
Attorney-General to see that it is
properly      enforced. (Prolonged
cheeers.)
As the Premier concluded there
was an outburst of cheering from the
deputation.
In an instant Mr. J. Rogers, the
President of the People's Prohibition
Movement, was on his feet. "I would
like to express our appreciation," he
said, "of the full manner In which
you have met our views. I do not
think we could expect more, you
mention the Alberta Act, but this we
only submitted as a standard. There
are Liberals in this room who I think
will concur with me and will agree
that in saying what I have I speak
for all parties. I believe the act will
be of the high standard of your other
acts and that you will enforce It,
We will be glad to give every assistance ln the preparation of the measure and welcome your offer that we
do so."
-Mr.  (!.   F.  dibson   then  said:   "As

While Alaskans have been complaining about the northern mall service

the matter seriously. The seven

Ringing cheers followed, led by D,
S. Curtis, of New Westminster, and,
as its notes died away Mr. Gibson
called for the singing of the National
Anthem as marking a great historic
event. This was done with a will,
after which the Premier and his colleagues were kept busy acknowledging the congratulations of these present.

and aay error is recorded.
But we do not simply rely on one method; each eye Is tested

ST. PATRICK'S DAY.
Paris, March 4,—The Germans
now hold Douaumont Wllage, but the
French dominate them from the commanding heights with their guns. As
the sides of the opposing forces are
fairly evenly matched It Is likely
the village may change hands more
than once before the battle ends.
Experts say the German possession of the place is only temporary.
The technical advantage remains
with the French, whose lines continue unbroken.
The French artillery Are has been
so fierce that the Germans are unable
to push the attack at any point on
the Douaumont plateau. Masses of
reserves have been brought up foi
the fighting, which began with renewed activity on Thursa'ay.
Desperate onslaughts were made
by Pomeranian and Brandenburg
regiments. In the first and second
attacks the assailants, who fought
with great bravery, reached the
French barbed wire entanglements,
but so fierce was the hail of bullets
that the grey-coated legions of the
Kaiser melted away. The officers
rallied them till no more were left
to rally.

Various Speakers Expressed Pleasure
At Results Of Victoria
Election.
The local Liberals, following the
news of the victory gained at Victoria, formed a procession, and to
the music of horns and tin cans
"serenaded" some of the Conservatives, Including the Journal office.
Later they marched to their committee rooms where they held an impromptu meeting, with short speeches from a number present. Alex. M.
Manson presided.
Athol Fraser saw signs of a sweeping Liberal victory. He desented the
local Government as the most corrupt
the Province had ever had.
Fred Stork said the victories at
Vancouver and at Victoria were not
victories for the Liberal party. He
did not believe there were more Liberals in the Province now than there
were four years ago, but the Conservatives, the labor men and the
Socialists had joined hands with the
Liberals to make things better in
the Province. He thought they might
be pardoned for the celebration they
had, for they had had twelve years
of beating, but they had taken it
like men. He did not want the party
t0 be made up of the men looking
for jobs. That had been the curse
of the Conservative party. As far
as his voice would go in the Liberal
party, there would be none of that.
George R. Naden felt quite sure
that there would be a Liberal Government in British Columbia Inside
of ninety days. He contended that
half the electors of the Province had
voted  in  these  last elections.     The

Invitation Given To Join The Colors
By  Memlwrs
Of 102nd.
Taking advantage of the gathering
to celebrate the Liberal victory in
Victoria last night, non-commissioned
officers and men attended the meeting and appealed for recruits. The
appeal was not attended with any
results. Alex. M. Manson, the chairman, gave every opportunity for the
soldiers to make the appeal.
Quartermaster-Sergt. Haynes said
the presence of the men in uniform
was for the purpose of trying to
secure some recruits to go with them
to fight the battles of the Empire.
Anyone with red blood in his veins,
who could get away, should' join
them. He asked any such to come
next door and enlist. He spoke disparagingly of any who took advantage of the fact that he was not a
citizen of this country, but who took
all the advantages that went with
living here without doing his duty.
A. Walker said he had spent a
large part of his time serving in the
army. He wanted some of the men,
whose hairs were not as grey as his,
to come on and join them and proceed to France and fight for the
country.

le Canadian soldier is the best fed
-oldier of them all. The Government cut down the cost of the soldiers' food only by eliminating all
waste and not . by reducing its
nourishing qualities or its quantity,
reports the News Advertiser.
To show how much better the Canadian battalions were fed than their
Allies in England, France, Russia and
Italy, or their enemies in German
and Austrian forces, Col. Mullins
showed a sample day's ration of the
Canadian soldier and compared this
with the day's ration of the soldiers
in  other  countries.
The Canadian geto meat every day
except Fridays, which is a fish day.
On Sundays he is served with mutton.
He eats dally one pound of meat or
its equivalent in fish; one pound of
potatoes, one pound of bread, 6 ounces of fresh vegetables, 3 ounces of
sugar, 2 ounces of butter, 2 ounces
of jam, 3 ounces of bacon, 2 ounces
of beans, 1 ounce of cheese, 1-2
ounce of sail, 1-2 ounce of split peas,

sufficient estimates for three months
and go to the people. He believed
the Liberals were going to have a
chance to govern the Province. If
ever they got as rotten as the present
Government, he hoped they would
be turned out also. Men like Brewster, Macdonald, Parker Williams and
John Oliver, would give them good
government.
Wm. P. Lynch contended that he
knew the Government was doomed
when it had violent hands on the
finances of the Province. The Liberal
Government was not going to have
any easy task, however. There was
no reason, however, why a rich province like British Columbia should not
be put in shape, where an honest
man might .make a living.
Alex. M. Manson agreed with Mr.
MacQ'onald, when he said it was not
a personal victory. The Province had
awakened. He hoped, that before a
Liberal Government sank to such
I degradation, that they would be
I brought to life by the electorate.

directed to forward, on.or before the
10th day of March, 1916, to the
Comptroller of Water Rights, at the
Parliament Buildings at Victoria, a
statement of claim in writing, as required by section 294 of the "Water

the Water Recorders in the Province.
AND TAKE NOTICE that a meet-
promising cabinet minister, if he
could be elected. This latter was regarded as a most difficult task. Mr.
Flumerfelt was not a man of previous
experience in a representative capacity. He had none of the wiles nor
the manners that make for popular
election. He was, in fact, about as
unlikely to catch the popular vote as
could be imagined. His opponent, ; s-j-5-4-w
Mr. Brewster is much more likely to

a large number of men. It is asserted that the proportion of Conserva-

which materially affects the situation in Victoria.
The Legislature has now the opposition it sought. For a long time
there bus been a howl that the Conservatives did not provide an opposition. It has now done this. A
statesman like Fred Stork even admits it was the Conesrvative vote
that elected the twu members. There
is no doubt there was a large number of Conservatives who desired to
see an opposition. Now they have it.
The House is now so constituted that
the fullest discussion can take place
on all business done. The Liberals
have described the Government of the
day as the most corrupt anywhere.

substantiate their charges. With an
