THE ALLIES STUBBORNLY FIGHT FOR EVERY FOOT
THE GERMAN FLEET HAS APPEARED IN THE BALTIC
Petrograd, June 5.—An official report says a strong fleet has appeared in the middle of the Baltic Sea.   It has exchanged shots with the Russian fleet near Gulf of Riga.
KNIGHTHOOD IS
HONORED BY ONE
Sill   CHARLES   FREDERICK   HAS
HAD   ILLUSTRIOUS
CAREER
His Work On  lleluilf Of The  lHiiid
Places Him On
Pedestal.
Sir Charles Frederick Fraser, edu
cationist and journalist, who has recently been knighted, was born at
Windsor, N. S., in 1850. He is the
author of "Master Sunshine" and
many otlier stories of an entertain
lng and instructive character. He
made a particular study of Instruc
tion for the blind, and since 1873
has ''been superintendent of the
School for the Blind at Halifax
which is recognized both on this eon
tlnent and in Europe as one of tlie
best equipped and orgaaized establishments of its charactsr in the
world.
The News Advertiser refering to
his  knighthood  says:
"Dr. C. F. Fraser lost his sight by
accident when he was sixteen. At
twenty-three he was one of the best
trained instructors in America, and
was superintendent of the Halifax
School for the Blind. He has held
that position forty-two years, and
has made his sehool a splendid academic and technical institution, recognized in America and Europe as
one of the best in the world. No man
living has done more to convince the
world that the blihd are entitled to
tlieir fair opportunity for usefulness
and culture, or more to promote
anfong the blind people a self-respecting ambition to compete with
their fellows on terms of equality.
Incidentally Dr. Fraser has edited
newspapers, established and managed
business corporations, preside"! over
fraternal, patriotic, and learned societies, and taken the lead in moral
and political movements. The order
of knighthood is honored when Sir
Charles Frederick Fraser becomes
one of its members."

BASEMENT OF SUGAR
REFINERY STACKED
WITH GERMAN  DEAD
 o	
Paris, June-n.—The capture, by
Ihe French, of lhe sugar refinery
at Souchcz reveals the basement of
the factory filled with German dead.
The German batteries were demolished  by  artillery.
Furious at the loss of tlieir base
for attacking Ablnin, the Germans
made a furious attempt to retake it,
and succeeded at midnight, but, aided
by reinforcements and artillery, the
French again recaptured the position.
In the last three weeks, the regiment engaged has buried nearly
3.000 Germans and has taken over
3,000  prisoners.

RESTRICTIONS
THE GOVERNMENT AT OTTAWA
HAS RELAXED
RULES
Tho   Shipping   Of   Copper   Will   Not
Be Interfered With
Now.
It is evident that there is to be
no restrictions placed on copper ores
from Canada, that will interfere with
the industry. There was a few
weeks ago^some little fear that the
industry might be injuriously affected, owing to the necessity of Inking
steps to see that no articles were allowed to reach the nations enemies.
The restrictions applied by the
government on the export of Canadian goods preventing their reaching
the enemy are being somewhat relaxed.
Several articles whiok heretofore
went only to Great Britain are now-
allowed expert to the Allies and the
United States. Special licenses in
such cases are being issued. In this
class are ores, such as zinc, copper
and  lead.
Where it is clearly established "that
they will iiot find their way ultimately to the enemy, their export to the
United States is being allowed.

Walter Smith Dead.
Word has been received in tlie
city, that Walter Smith, son of Ver-
nor W. Smith, a former resident of
this city has died from wounds. He
was only about eighteen years of age
and attended the public school here.
He enlisted with the first contingent
In Vancouver and went to Valcartier
for preparatory training. Shortly
after going to France, he was wounded In the head, the report being that
his skull was fractured. His uncle,'
J. A. Smith, received word today that
he had died In hospital from the In-
injurles.

Another graphic account of (she
part which is being taken by the Canadian artillery in the fighting in
northern France is told in a letter
received here from Major E. W. R
Morrison, commander of the first artillery division. Major Morrison tells
of 17 days of continuous fighting
during which the Canadians never
had their clothes off. He says in
part:
"We I my brigade) have not had
our clothes off for 17 days. We fired
16,000 shells, had six guns put out
of business by 'Jack Johnsons' and
lost five officers and 75 men killed
and wounded. That's the sort' of reserve we were In.
"My remaining guns were nearly
out of business when we finally ordered out of the position the night
before last; the oil was boiling in
the recoil buffers and the recoil
springs tired, but I flatter myself
there was only standing room in hell
for Germans that night. We helped
stop five German attacks on that day
alone.
"But, grousing apart, I'm getting
all the fighting 1 want, and it is good.
My brigade was the last to come out
of the big fight that commenced on
the afternoon of April 22, with gassing the French division on our left,

Paris, June 5.—An official report
says:—"In the section north of Arras, we realised important progress
within Neuvill. We are holding at
present, more than half the northern
section of all the eastern part. This
is more than two-thirds of the village.
"We have likewise, gained 450
meters in the northern part of La-
brynth, and have made slight progress from the center of that work,
where the struggle continues without cessation.
"On the whole front of that section, there have been artillery engagements, notably at Lorette, Neu-
ville and Labyrynth. These have been
of extreme  violence.
"The German gun, which fired tin I
Verdun , has  been   located.   It   came!
under  our   fire  which  damaged   the
concreted base, and blew up the ammunition depot."

ADVICE  AS  'I'd   FISHING,
The advice that Mr. Smithers of
the Booth Fisheries gave (lie people
of Prince Rupert, through ihe
medium of an interview g"von the
Journal, may well be considered with
the greatest care by the citizens. An
industry that is built up from the
bottom in any centre is usually' the
most prosperous one. A large population of resident fishermen who have
an interest in the city and in ail 'ts
institutions, is certainly to be desired. When the concessions were
granted by tlie Government at Ottawa to allow the incoming of foreign
boats, it was always felt that this
was to be a more or less temporary
move, to put the industry on a starting basis, while the permanent tuner residents were coining here and
establishing themselves in the city.
The latter is lhe condition that must

SHIPS LOST  IN  WAR
Admiralty Gives Number Of Merchant Ships Sunk Hy The Rnemy
As  131).
An Admiralty statement giving the
number of British merchant and
fishing vessels sunk or captured
since the beginning of the war,
shows that fifty-six merchant ships
have been sent to the bottom by
cruisers of the enemy, twelve by
mines and sixty-two by submarines,
a total of one hundred and thirty.
Eighty-three fishing crafl have been
lost and <if these twenty-four were
sunk by mines. Since German submarines began their attacks on merchant shipping January 27, the merchant vessels sunk by them number
fifty-nine and the fishing craft thirty-
one.
Looking at these losses from the
standpoints of tonnage it is seen that
since the war began Great Britain
|<ias lost. 458,000 tons in merchant
shipping and IS,585 tons in fishing
vessels.

Is Business
Slow?
It probably serves you right
You are not letting the public know what you have
Advertise!
Advertise!
Advertise!
That is the Solution
That manufacturers should Increase tlieir advertising appropriations during a period of business depression nnd curtail during the years
of prosperity, was the opinion advanced hy Roger Bahson, the financial anil business statistician, at a
meeting of the Technical Publicity
Association, held in New York.
"Directors of your company regard
advertising as a luxury to lie cut
down when business is poor," said
Sir. Babson. "They give you oiilcrs
what to do rather than you giving
(hem  orders.
"If yon solved this advertising
problem in u scientific way you
would (ell them what to do, the same
as tlieir lawyers and their bunkers
tell them.
"In a year of prosperity (hey are
willing 1« give you a big advertising
appropriation! and when the reaction
comes Ihey cut down to almost nothing. Take (he big appropriation in
(lie fat years and sail it away for use
in (he lean years.
"If you nil did this the business ot
the country would move along more
evenly; Ibe business boom would be
less, and lhe icaclI.m, (he area of
business depression, smoller."

Statistics   Covering   Freighting   into
The United States—Nationalities
Of The Carriers.
Tbe United States Bureau of
Foreign and Domestio Commerce has
compiled tables of United States-exports and imports carried in vessels
of each nationality, and in cars and
othor land vehicles during the eight
months ending .'larch 31, 101.1, compared with Ibe same period ending
March, 1914, which shows how the
great war has affected lhe wnterborn
commerce of that nation. 11 also
shows tbat American shipping, which
has been at a standstill for years,
has been materially benefited hy the
new laws which kave permitted
American citizens to purchase vessels  from  abroad.
The tables show that In the recent
period of eight months, 12.C4 per
cent, of the imports was carried in
American bottoms, while for the
period of tbe year before the tonnage
carried in United States ships was
only 8.34 per cent. Correspondingly
the proportion of United States exports transportated In American bottoms rose from G.r.7 per cent, in
eight months ending with Afarch,
1!H4, to 1(1.2." per cent, in a period
ending March, 1915.
The table is interesting in that It
shows very slight descrepancies In
the amount of business done by British freighters In the two periods
under review notwithstanding the
fact that hundreds of steamships
have been commandeered by tbe British Admiralty for transport of supplies to the allied fleets. German and
Austrian vessels, however, show a
tremendous shrinkage in tbe matter
of exports, dwindling down to practically zero. Movements in Belgian
ships have also been seriously affected, hut in Swedish, Danish, Italian,
French and Norwegian, particularly
the latter, there have been great
gains in values of commodities
bandied both inward and outward,
but particularly in the export moTe-
ment which of course indicates outgoing munitions and supplies for the
armies of Europe.

Appropriations    Since
Have Amounted To

Augusl
UNDSAVS CARTAGE SSTORAGL
Ottawa,  June  5.—ll  is estimated
that the special war revenues imposed
by tlie budget will meet all interest
.ou war expenditures and  defray thej
cost of the pensions.
The war appropriations since August have amounted to a hundred and
fifty millions. Tbe Interest on ibis
accounl is six and a half millions,
while, I'or pensions, bei ween four and
five millions have to he provided.
The new war taxes are working
well, especially whei receipts at present are compared with other months
since tlie war started. To institute
comparisons with a year ago, when
ocean tonnage was available to tbe
fulest extent and conditions were
normal is regarded as unfair.
In Augusl. when the war began,
customs receipts were"8,245,000, in
September $5,644,000, October $.".,-
331,000, November $4,895,000, December $-1,7illl,lli)0 and Jnjiuary $4,-
767,000.
The Budget became operative on
February 11th, and since then the
revenue has gone tip steadily, except
,in April, which is always a small
month. In February the total was
$6,805,000, March $7,066,000, and
April $6,276,000. The Minister of
Finance expreses himself as wholly
| satisfied with the operation of the act
Returns for April of tonnage sailing from Canadian ports show tbe
effect of the war in reducing the
Lumber of ships available for service
Montreal's tonnage In April is returned at only 2,734 tons, as againsl
35,958 in April last year. Quebec's

The first authoritative statement
"ii the war effect on the postal
revenues was made in Washington.
Postmaster-General Burleson announced that tbe postal deficit for
the first six months of the current
fiscal year amounted to $6,482,719.
The period under consideration extended from July 1 last to December
31, 1914. In that lime the receipts
of the department were $143,249 -
848, a decline of $456,160 as compared with the returns for the corresponding period of Ihe previous
year. The expenditures totalled
$1411,7111,1172,     as     compared      wllh
$140,580,006, an Increase of more
than $9,000,000, compared with the
expenditure   for   the   corresponding
period of the preceding year.
ii has been unofficially estimated
thai, lhe postal deflcll tor the entire
fiscal year, which will end on June
80, will  be ' lose to $20,001 0,  If
tbe lasl six months of tho year "I Id

Although Alexandre Ribot, French
Minister of Finance, announced in
Paris last week tbat he had arranged
for the Britisii Government to grant
credits to France, no official announcement' was made in London until yesterday, when the Bank of England stated that 8,000,000 sovereigns
had been received from abroad. This
Is the first instalment of £20,000,0*0
($1,000,0001,000) in gold wliieh is
coming from Paris to London to start
the credit, and a further £40,000,-
000 in treasury bills Is expected to
be issued *o complete the credit.
The French Finance Minister is reported to have said tbat tha scheme
besides arranging for the payment of
war supplies in England, Is intsnded
to facilitate French purchases from
America, hut so far the operation has
had little noticeable effect on exchange.
The arrival of £8,000,000 is believed to be the largest bullion m»ve-
ment ever announced by the Bank in
one day. The arrangement of this
credit is part cf the scheme agreed
upon soon after the commencement
of war, that the gold reserve of
either of the Allies should be utilized
to replenish that of the other, lf it
were found necessary at any time to
do so.
Advantage has already been taken
ot the scheme instituted by th» Russian Government in conjunction with
the British authorities to Issue treasury bills In London to release Russian commercial paper held up here
by reason of the war and exchange
difficulties, Several applications have
been made for the release of such
bills held by the Bank of England.
