In
Basle, March 20.—When twenty-
three Allied aeroplanes raided Mul-
hause. the greatest aerial battle of
the war took place. The accounts
declare tee fifty machines were fighting in the contest at close quarters.
The Germans' anti-aircraft guns
were forced to cease fire upon the
enemy's aircraft In order to avoid hitting their own machines.
One French airman rammed a Ger,
man machine which fell to the ground
in flames.
Five German and three French
aeroplanes fell to earth. The occupants were all  killed.
Even while fighting the Allied airmen dropped a number of bombs
upon military positions of the enemy.
DAMAGE TO ZEEBRTJGGE.
London, March 20.-—Sixty-five Allied aeroplanes bombarded Zeebrug-
ge today. All of (hem returned. Considerable damage was done by the
machines. On an average they carried 200 pounds o* bombs.

FRESH EGGS.
I'uited   States   Making   Progress
Fur Trade Owing To
The War.
The fur trade, which was demoralized during 1914, owing to the disruption of European commerce, has
gradually assumed a healthier condition. The most important development m this trade since the outbreak of war has been the organization of a New York fur sales agency
which held its first sale ln January.
In past years London has been the
Meeca of fur buyers, but the state of
continental trade has seriously affected recent London sales. The or-'
ganization of the New York sale has half miles from the beach, and the
served to bring the fur dealers of,eggs are guaranteed entirely free
North America together, and there is j from any suspicion of fishy taste, tf.
the Legislature.
Before the council last evening he
explained that the bill was progressing well. He had expected a message from Mr. Peters, the City Solicitor, that afternoon, giving the Information that it had got through
the Private Bills Committee.
The Mayor said hat the bill was
considered by the committee clause
by clause. The bill was likely to go
through all right, with the possible
exception of two clauses. The one
of these was that relating to the
reserve, and the other the clause relative to the issue of short term
bonds. The excuse, with respect to
the latter, was that general legislation would be introduced' along that
line.
Fighting Has Gone
On Along French
And Italian Fronts
Alex. Holmburg, the returned sol-
d'er has a chicken ranch at Porchc
Island. He is bringing over to Rupert a regular supply of strictly
fresh eggs. They can be had at
George P. McColl's Grocery Store.

of the year, and $100 for the publication of a report upon the mining
situation, prepared by A. C. Garde.
The Finance Committee reported
in favor of a grant of $450 in all
for the work.
Aid. Casey asked, with respect to
the report of Mr. Garde. Would it
be paid for by the city?
The Mayor said that the proposal
was that if the Board or Trade saw-
fit to print it it could do so.
Aid. Casey did not see why money
should be voted to the Board of
Trade, which was an irresponsible
body. He favored the printing of
Mr, Gara'e's report. He felt that
when economy was the keynote, it
seemed a poor policy to vote money
ro an organization with no definite
understanding. He had voted for

Legislative Press Gallery, March
15.—The Lieut.-Governor today gave
his assent to the much disputed validating bill which the House passed
at a midnight session last, night in
order to make it clear that the life
of the present Legislature may extend to June 1st. unless sooner dissolved. Liberals had claimed that
I the wording of the Constitution Act
made it clear that the House automatically ceased tn exist -four years
I from the date of the return of the
I first writs In the 1912 elecetion, and
I not us contended by tho Government
four years from June 1, 1012, the
I date when the 1912 Order-in-Council
made the writs returnable. Ii had
been discovered yesterday morning
that the first writs was from Chilliwack, and was returned March IB,
1912, bearing date of March 14. The
Liberals therefore argued that the
House ceased to exist at midnight
last night, the Government could not
agree with this contention and insisted on June 1 being the proper date,
bringing In, however, a validating
bill.
The Old Brigade Busy.
Yesternay was a day of excilenient
around the corridors of the House.
Early in the day the Premier offered
to drop all contentious Legislation
and pass only a moderate supply and
necessary bills, such as Prohibition,
if the Opposition would make the
passage of the validating bill unanimous, This was at first agreed to by
Messrs. Brewster, Macdonald and
William:-, bul after they hi A an Interview with M icsrs. John Oliver and
Stuart Henderson "the boys of the
old brigade," they came back and de-
man ,i"' that the Governmenl dissolve Immediately, merely passing a
lump sum for supplies to cover three
months Civ il Service salaries.
Will Stay Willi Pledge.
Premier Bowser, In speaking In
tho House, indignantly refused such
a proposition, pointing out that at all
costs a probltlon bill must he passed and submitted lo the people in
accordance with his pledge, He accused the Liberals of showing evl-

IRREGULAR RETURN.
Evidently the acl with respect to
the return of the writs in the by-
elections In Vancouver and Victoria
was not strictly complied with. At
the same time the result of any investigation is not likely to upset the
election. It is specifically provided
that an election shall not be rendered
void because all the technicalities are
uot complied with.
CITY COUNCIL TO.
(Continued from Page One.)
$60i' being granted to the Board of
Trad". He had been informed at
that time there was a report on mining being prepared.
Aid. Montgomery did not approve
of voting money to any private liody
He moved an amendment that the
city take over the work.
Aid. Nelson argued that the vote
was not made to an Irresponsible
body. He contended that inasmuch
as the city had the year before granted $5o a month, and a rather extensive publicity campaign had been
carried out, ihat it was necessary to
follow it up to some extent this year
If that were not none the work of
the year before would be wasted. The
committee in making the reduction
to $4"'0 was doing so because it felt
they should economize. There should
be some body to whom this publicity
end could be entrusted. If the city
could afford to do the work he would
be perfectly agreeable to a general
campaign being adopted. The $450
was designed only to keep alive the
work to some small extent.
Aid. McClymont was of the opinion
that it would not be a good ad'ver-
tisemenl to this city to have correspondence accumulating, it would
not be wise to drop this altogether.
With respect to the report on mining,
he was quite agreeable to see it. printed if the Board of Trade so decided.
There would be, In addition to that,
however, a considerable expenditure
in circulating it.
Tlie motion carried, the amendment to print the Garde report and
to drop the remainder being lost.
Those In favor of tiie grant were
Mayor McCaffery, Aid. McClymont,
Smith, Nelson and McRae. Those opposed were Aid. Barrie, Montgomery

PARTI' UNITED FOR.
(Continued from Page One.)
dence of a secret arrangement with
the liquor interests, manifested In
their willingness to have an immediate dissolution and let prohibition go
by the order. This was denied by
Mr. Brewster and a stormy debate
followed. The Opposition used' every
device they could think of to block
the passage of the bill, which was
finally passed four minutes after
midnight.
Matter Of Legislation.
In the House today, Premier Bowser annnounced that even admitting
the original contention of the Liberals, regarding the return of the election writs governing the life of Parliament, the Government had had all
day today In which to pass this bill
and therefore its position in the matter was quite secure.
He announced, that while the Government would possibly drop contentious Legislation and go to the people
on certain bills, it would decide for
itself just what these bills would' be,
and no further turns would be offered to the Opposition. It is thought
probable that the Government will
go to the people on th" Pacific Great
Eastern Bill, Aid to Shipping, Workmen's Compensation, and Aid to Agriculturists, believing that if the people desire the improvement contemplated in this Legislation they will
evidence that wish by returning the
Bowser administration to power.
Prohibitionists Stand.
Prohibitionists from Vancouver
waited on the Premier today and announced that they were standing behind him in his endeavor to submit
a bill to the electors, tliey also
strongly favored the stand of the
Premier for Prohibition Bill and
referendum, without any raising of
the Compensation question at the
same time.
Some twenty prominent Victoria
men represented financial interest
interviewed the Premier today, with
the demand that Compensation be
provided for, they claimed that otherwise the liquor men would be unable
to meet their mortgages. There was
a dispute in the Caucus the other
night on the Compensation features,
some fifteen of the members expressing the opinion that some relief
should be handed the hotel interests.
Great pressure is ' ing brought to
bear on the administration in this
connection, but It is believed that the
Premier will stand firm In leaving
this matter entirely out of the bill
and the referendum, that is to say:
the future must take care of Con-
pensatlon and the present Prohibit! m
issue will not be rloua'ed.
Defended Government.
H. H. Watson, Vancouver, and A.
Lucas, Yale, gave fighting speeches in
the House this afternoon. Mr. Watson defended the Government's railway policy, referring particularly to
the immense value to southern sections of the Province, the Kettle
Valley would prove to be, the importance of extending the Pacific
Great Eastern to tap the Peace
River district nnd the possibilities
of development along the C. N, R.,
now in Its first year of operation.
Mr, Lucas charged the Liberals with
attempting to dlscredll tho Province,
merely for the purpose of getting into ofric". He gave statistics to Bhow
thai per capita ir stood in the forer
J front in the Dominion for production
I of field crops, fishing, mining nnd
manufacturing; ho defied the Opposition to prove their extravagant
| charges of corruption, pointing out
that every opportunity was being
given them to make Investigations,
Settled Point.
The assent given today by tlie
Lieut.-Governor to the Amending
Bill, making it clear that the life of
the Legislature may run till .lime 1,
has settled tlie contentioa on this
point. The Government may now proceed to enact such Legislation as it
deems beneficial to the Province at
large, and the atttempts of the Opposition to throw the business of the
c untry Into chaos by an Immediate
dissolution have been frustrated.
A good deal of favorablo. comment
has  been  heard  here  today on  the
announcement that the Government
proposed to bring ln a bill giving the
vote to all British Columbia soldiers
now In British possessions. Technical
and legal difficulties made the task
of giving the franchise to provincial
volunteers now at the front, in
alien countries, almost Insurmountable. It is realized, however, that
Premier Bowser, In endeavoring to
provide a vote for the patriotic soldiers who have left their homes here,
is emminently wise and will receive
general support. *f
Unifying The Party.
If it has done nothing else, yesterday's sensational dispute has solidified the Conservative members here,
and It is certain they will stand
solidly behind the Premier in his
policy. Many Vancouver churches
have passed resolutions approving of
the* stand taken by the Government
with regard to Prohibition. Judging
by the reversion of feeling in the
coast cities, hundreds of Conservatives who voted for an Opposition In
the recent by-elections, will return to
their first love and will mark their
bailots at the general election in
favor of the Government and its various policies, such as Prohibition, Ex-
tention of the Pacific Great Eastern
into the Peace River, Loans to Farmers, Ala' in the construction of British Columbia vessels and Workmen's
Compensation.
