provided for by a provision in every bond
by a clause that during such bond or
option the employees shall be paid semimonthly and the person acquiring bond
or option shall furnish the gold commissioner, recorder or government agent
with adequate security from time to
time for wages. /
Sweeping advances against the Germans over all o: about a hundred miles
by th* British and French armies and
additional gains by the Russians and
Brittsh over the Turks in Turkish Armenia, Persia and Mesopotamia are the
outstanding features in the war news.
The important towns of Perrone,
Chaulncs and Nesle an more than sixty
villages have been taken by the British
troops on a front of some forty-five
miles and King George's men are continuing the pursuit of the retreating
Germans. At some points Sunday incursions into German positions were to
a depth of over ten miles. Operations
were carried out on a front running
from Arras to Chaulnes.

The naval air service department is
looking for more men for the Royal

December last Applicants must be between th* ages of 19 and 23 inclusive,

An order-in-council has been passed
at Ottawa which prohibits th* granting
of homesteads or rights of any kind to
any person- "who was not at the commencement of the present war, and who
has not since continued to be, a Briiish
subject or a subject of a country which
is an ally of His Majesty in the present
war, or th* subject of a neutral country, and who establishes the same to
the satisfaction of the Minister of the
Interior."
A new map has been issued by ths
Railway Lands Branch, Department of
the Interior, Ottawa, which will no
doubt be hailed with pleasure by the
merchantile and professional community; it is entitled the Judicial District
Map. The merchant, farmer or other
citizen of the West, as well as the
wholesaler of the East, has oftimes noted the paucity of information with regard to the exact location of the points
at which sittings of the courts are held,
or at which title deeds or other important documents of a similar nature may
be registered. This data is of obvious
benefit and importance to all those having matters of a litigious nature in
hand. The- new publication shows, by
an elaborate, but not complicated, colour scheme, the location of both land
registration ar.d judicial districts, in the
Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan
and Alberta. Certain towns containing
both Court .House and Registry Office
are indicated on the map by a circle of
one colour, while those containing one,
but not both of these conveniences, are
shown by a circle of a distinctive nature nature. Where the county court,-
as distinguished from the Supreme, or
Court of King's Bench - sits, this too is

Chief of Police is Killed in Gunfight With Negro
In one of the most sensational and horrible triple tragedies Vancouver
has ever experienued, Police Chief M. B. MacLennan was shot dead,
George Robb, a lad of eight, who resides at 548 Georgia Street east, was
fatally shot by a stray bullet, and Detective John Cameron was seriously
wounded, all by firearms in the hands of Robert Tate, a giant negro and
notorious character known to all the police of every city on the coast.
Tate afterwards died by his own hand, blowing the top of his head off,
after the apartments he occupied at 522 Georgia Street east had been the
scene of a spectacular siege for over two hours and scores of shots were
fired. Frankie E. Russell, white, a woman of the underworld who
shared the appartments with Tate, surrendered to the police and is now
in custody. The Russell woman was also known under the aliases of
Edith Rice and Annie Harris.
The whole trouble started when Tate held a gun up to the face of his
landlord, Frank King, who had called to collect rent after 6 o'clock. Mr.
King, at 7.30 p.m., reported the matter to the police.
Tate who is well-knomn to the police of Vancouver as a confirmed
"hophead," shut himself up in his room with the woman, when Detective
demanded entrance about 7.30 p.m. He is believed to have been full of
the drug at the time and told Dective Russell that h* "would go under"
before he would come out at the commands of the force. A few minutes
later he started firinsr at the detectives bringing down Cameron and another shot grazing the right side of Russell's face and hitting the Robb
boy who walking on the street below,

ANOTHER MISTAKE
The German authorities
seem to have once more mistaken their ability to do
things in the way of the proposed conquest of the world.
It seems probable that upwards of sixty submarines
were put out of business in
the month succeeding their
proclamation of piracy. The
"sink at sight" policy has
not answered. That project
of subduing the nations has
failed. It must be relagated
to the limbo in which the
costly gas-bags named Zeppelins have evidently gone.
And by the way Count Zeppelin has permanently gone
to limbo himself.
All the same the Germans
. have committed a number of
cruel murders with their
submarines as they also did-
with their zeppelins. Helpless women and children were
drowned by the sink at sight
policy. During the time that
zeppelin raids were in vogue
many innocent persons in
England suffered death or
mutilation, and homes were
destroyed. There are families in various countries that
will never be quite the same
again because of the atrocious
activities of the U-boats and
the deadly though ineffectual
airships.
High angle guns and watchful aeroplanes have about
settled the zeoplins. The
American shoot - at - sight
method—adopted after much
talk about it—and the arming
of merchant ships, together
with the operations of the
British and French navies
will no doubt deal with the
U-boats effectively.
But that is not enough.
Complete justice can scarcely
be looked for, because so
many murderers have been
abroad. But the world would
feel a certain relief if the
Kaiser and his chief myrmi-
doms were brought to the
scaffold. Their execution
would be a good beginning
when negociations for peace
begin. 	
A SENSIBLE REPORT
A very instructive report
has been issued by a Commission appointed by the Ontario Government to consider
unemployment in that province and to recommend
permanent measures of reform. One of the results of
their inveitigations is that
the Commissioners have
much to say about immigration, And they recognize that
after the war there will be
a great inflex of immigrants
into Canada.
They point out that very
often the wrong kind of people have been induced to
come to Canada by the emigration agents. Sometimes,
when the new comers have
been of the right sort, many
of them have been allowed
to drift into a position of
helplessness—for sheer lack
of alert and well-informed
leadership. The cities in
which many experienced yet
farmless farmers stagnated
were only a few hours removed from gdTTd unbroken
land. Means must be employed to prepare the land
for them.
It is the judgment of the
Ontario Commission that
after the conclusion of peace
this country will owe a lasting debt to those who have
fought the awful battle for
human freedom and democratic principles. It should
be possible to unite the Imperial and Dominion Governments in a policy which will
keep the movement of population more and more within
the Empire.
Before the war the annual
emigration from the British
Isles amounted to 500.000
people. This is reckoning
those who sought their fortunes in all the countries open to them. There are several recommendations in the
Ontario report that appear
to be based upon common
sense. The incoming of
large numbers must be better directed than in the past.
Among the recommendations
made we notice the following.
1. The present system of
subsidizing booking and shipping agencies should be completely revised.
2. The regulation requiring immigrants to possess,
on landing, a minimum sum
of money should be relaxed
if in other respects the im-

In reviewing the recruiting returns of
the different provinces of the Dominion,
one is profoundly impressed by the splendid response made by the manhood of
British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.
This record is indeed one to be proud
of, but there are still a very large number
of eligible men in the Provinee who for
various reasons have been prevented from
doing their duty, and it is to these that
the Officer Commanding No. 19 Company

Instructions   have   just been  received
from Headquarters to enlist men of the
following trades and occupations for overseas service with the above corps.
