ROUMANIA AND
ITS PROBLEMS
THE    KINGDOM    OF    SOUTHERN
EUROPE THAT IS   LIKELY
TO ENTER WAR.
Mixed  Population   of   About   Seven
Million   in   the
Country.
Roumanla Is a kingdom of Southern Europe, situated to the northeast
of the Balkan Peninsula (sometimes
included In the peninsula), and on
the Black Sea. Rou mania begins on
the seaward side with a band of territory called the Dobrudja; and
broadens westward into the form &TjPersIan Gulf,
a blunted crescent, its northern horn
being called Moldavia, its southern
Walachia. Along the inner side of
the crescent runs the Carpathian
Mountains, also called, toward their
western extremity, the Transylvania
Mountains. The frontier which
marks off Hungary is drawn along
their crests. The eastern boundary
is formed by the River Prutha
(Prutu) between Moldavia and Russia; further south by the Klla,
mouth of the Danube, between Dobrudja and Russia, and the Black
Sea. The country has an area of 50,-
720 square miles, or about 6,500
square miles less than the combined
areas of England and Wales.
Mixed Population.
The population of Rouinania, when
last census was taken in 1912 was
7,248,0(11, composed of many dlffer-
Parls, Jan. 23.—The official report from the front says the fighting was continued all night.
At Fontaine, Madame and St. Hubert all attempts made by the enemy
were repulsed, but the engagements
were resumed this morning. No news
of the operations for this day at this
point were received nor of the struggle which is in progress at Hartman
and  Weilerkopf.

INDIA  HAS SUPPLIED
ARMY' OF 200,000
The viceroy, Baron Hardinge, In
a speech at the opening of the viceregal council, disclosed that the
troops which India had contributed
to the war numbered 200,000. These
soldiers are distributed in France,

Dispute.
There is going to be a very lively
conflict next spring between the
fisheries department at Ottawa and
the Quebec fisheries department over
the control of fishing in tidal waters
of the St. Lawrence and its tributaries above Point des Monts. The
exact defining of the two jurisdictions has been in dispute for some
years, but recently a Privy Council
decision on a similar case in British
Columbia was taken by the Government at Ottawa to cover the Quebec
case. The Provincial authorities,
however refused to recognize the decision as disposing of their claim,
nor were they willing to join in

LIVING IN CANADA

CONSIDERABLE DROP DURING RECENT MONTHS.
Department of Labor Statistics Evidence Position Almost Identical
Willi  Year Ago.
It will be encouraging to Canadian householders to know that despite the war the cost of living is
going down. The Department of Labor at. Ottawa keeps close tab on
prices throughout the whole of Canada, and their review of the situation shows that there has been a
considerable drop in the past couple
of months.
During these few months previous
to the outbreak of the war there
had been a sag in prices. The declaration of hostilities, with the
complete disturbance of business and
its unsettling conditions, was immediately followed by a jump ln

Germany Regards
Acts Of Roumania
As Being Hostile
London, Jan. 23.—The Paris
Temps prints the following from
Petrograd: "Germany in a note to
Roumania declares that the measures
have been undertaken by the latter
country which will be regarded as
tantamount to mobilization and encouragement to the revolutionary
propaganda of Transylvania and are
regarded as hostile acts."
The Loudon Times' correspondent
at Sofia says he believes that whatever now happens, Roumania will
start a campaign in Transylvania
probably about the middle of February.
The Roumanian minister to Bulgaria, who is now in Bucharest, the
correspondent adds, is expected to
return soon to Bulgaria, taking with
him  proposals   to  facilitate   an    un
derstanding  between    Bulgaria   and
Rouinania.
"It is believed," the correspondent
declares, "that restitution of the
towns of Baltchlk and Tecbritch I in
that portion of northeastern Bulgaria which was awarded to Roumania at the end of the Balkan war)
will be offered. Roumania formerly
had hesitated owing to her doubts
concerning Italy's policy, but she is
now convinced that Italy will join
the Allies."

most part keep to themselves, keeping their own religion and racial customs. The governing race are the
Roumans, while the .lews have practically a monopoly of the mercantile trade, although they are not allowed to own land In the country.
The Armenians and Greeks are a

The opinion of the
Express, that public opinion in G
Britain is turning against Cobden-
istu. is very interesting. A revival of
the tariff question in the clear light
of conditions as these are revealed
by a great war, is bound to lead
more and more away from Free
Trade.
German statesmen have always
held that Free Trade is a tariff policy founded upon the assumption
that war is impossible. They have
held that it meant sacrificing or endangering the nation for the sake of
a problematical luxury. Certainly
Germany would be in a very bad
state 'today if she had embraced
Free Trade.
Great Britain has free trade, and
a. huge navy to protect her trade
routes. Even so, the price of bread
has just gone up. The commerce of
the world is not competent to withstand the pressure of war conditions
which compel the employment of
many fleets of ships to transport
men and supplies to the continent of
Europe. If the opponents of Cobden
had had an argument like this one
to use against him, it is a question
if Great Britain would have adopted
his policies as enthusiastically as
she did, or at all.
The destruction of the British
fleet would mean the starvation of
the British people. That is the stern-
est menace facing any nation at war
today, however much confidence may
be reposed in the fleet. Cobden was
a pacifist, and he favored a pacifist,
policy. The arguments behind him
lent themselves to attractive exploitation In u popular campaign, and the
people got what they wanted. The
lessons of this war will help Ihem
to decide Let tor what is tbe correct
policy for Great Britain. Free Trade
is on trial today, li is the ideal policy for the Ideal condition of international affairs; but International
affairs are far from Ihe ideal state.

about 250 miners' inches and it is
now necessary for the company
which furnishes water, light and
power to expend a considerable
amount of money each year in developing- power from steam and to
use a considerable part of this powei
in pumping water. Records of the
weather bureau at Wallace show
that the  precipitation  for  the  years
mania ranked as third grain growing country in the world. It is very
rich in black earth, and the people
are advanced in scientific farming.
Mining is also one of the big industries of the country, among the
minerals being petroleum, salt, lignite and brown coal.
The Roumanian climate alternates
between   extreme    cold    in    winter,
since the Are has been about normal when   the    thermometer    sometimes
for the region. This seems to demon- falls to  20  Fahrenheit and   extreme
strate to the townspeople that the
variations in the flow must be due
to the destruction of the forest
cover of the watershed and not to
any change in climate or precipitation.
In view of tbe situation, the forest
service has undertaken to reforest
the denuded watershed. Some planting has. already been done and
eventually all of the watershed
which Is included within national
forest boundaries is to be reforested.
The people of Wallace are taking
considerable Interest in the work
and express themselves as thoroughly ln sympathy with the effort that
the service is making. The expert?
Of the department, however, point
out that while the planting will
probably have no immediate effect,
yet is should influence run-off as
soon as forest conditions are restored,  and    re-establish    eventually
heat in summer, when it may vise
to 100 In the shade. Little or no
snow falls on the plains, but it may
lie in the mountains for five months.
Along the southern part of the
country and along the Danube river
the country is very desolate and
swampy; for 290 miles it is absolute! fen-country, varied by a few
bills, and cities, and lagoons, often
15 miles long. It would be almost
impossible to take a modern army
with its heavy artillery and commissary waggons through this country.

The Index  Figure.
Reports on prices are measured by
index llgures, based upon the average price of from 230 to 277 se'ect-
ed commodities In the period of
1890 to 1899. The average price during these years is represented by a
hundred. Compared with these
prices the index a year ago was
137, and today is 137.3, so that the
average cost of living is almost identical with a year ago. When war was
declared the index bad gone down to
135. This jumped after the war to
140, five points, and is now back to
the figure of a year ago.

sending a case to the Privy Council.
The Federal Government has
therefore decided to assert its ait
thority, and to undertake the control
of the fisheries in all the tidal waters of Quebec. It has notified the
Provincial Government, and is notifying the fishermen by a statement
in the Canada Gazette this week
that no one will hereafter be permitted to fish in such waters except
under a Federal license, and it will
be unnecessary for them to secure
a license to fish in such waters from
any other authority.
The result will probably be an appeal to the Privy Council for a final
settlement, because it is learned
that the Provincial Government in
tends to resist the effort of the Do
minion Government to assume con

"All really," said Studholme, with
a grim smile, as he twisted up a
cigarette—a luxury unknown to the
gentlemen of England ' until intro-
jdttced  by retired Crimeans.
So wrote Graw In "One of the Six
Hundred," and accurately, too. For,
popular as the cigarette is now, it
did not "come in" till after the Crimean war, when it was introduced
by English officers, naval and military.
Somewhat similar is the history of
the calabash pipe, which was introduced into England, or, at any rate,
popularized here, after the South
African war.
Through war, too, absinthe drinking became an institution in France.
When the troops were operating in
Algiers in 1832-47, the seductive
liquor was prescribed as a febrifuge,
and the soldiers became so fond of it
that they continued to drink it on
their return to France.
It is also owing to the circumstances of war that Germany's Iron
Cross, the chief decoration, is made
of the commonest of metals, and is
intrinsically worth only a few pence.
During the light against Napoleon
gold became so scarce that the married women gave their wedding
rings to the government, which presented them with iron substitutes.
Today  they are valued heir-looms.
In consequence of the women's
self-denial iron jewellery became
fashionable, and when Frederick
William III. of Prussia instituted a
cross for distinguished service, he
ordered it to be made of iron.
Fashions, again, have frequently
been derived from a soldier's uniform. Many years ago a contingent
of Cossacks visited London, and as
a result men's dress underwent a
great change, short boots and loose
trousers "coming in" almost immediately.
The zouave jacket, which many
ladies will remember, was similarly
modeled on a distinctive part of the
semi-Moorish uniform worn by
France's famous troops. Introduced
in Paris, it bad a vogue all over
Europe.
situated in this pre.ince. It was
occupied by the Russians in 1769
and by the Austrians in 1774. In
1777 the Pone, under whose suzerainty Moldavia was, ceded this province to Austria. It was incorporated
with Galicia'in a single province in
1786, but was separated from it in
1849, and made a separate crown
land.
