expressions of regret. York correspondent says
Mr. Soues was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, and in his youth
went to Australia, but in 1802,
he came to British Columbia from
there. At Douglas and later at
Clinton he was engaged in commercial business until 1881, when
he was appointed Government
Agent and Gold Commissioner at
Clinton, which office he filled
most satisfactorily, until his retirement on superannuation three
years ago. He received the highest allowance paid at that time
showing the government recognized his merits. The writer,
who had the privilege of an intimate acquaintance with him for
years, saw him last May, and despite his great age, his interlect,
heating, and eyesight were as
good as when I first saw him.

INOTICE
Post Office Department,
Ottawa, Jan. 29, 1915,
Arrangements have been made
whereby the ordinary rate of
two cents per ounce applicable to
all letters sent from Canada to
the United Kingdom, will apply
to letters addressed to British and
Canadian troops on the continent.
The rate on ordinary letters from
Canada for the continent is five
cents for the first ounce, and
three cents for each subsequent
ounce, so that this extension of
of the two cents an ounce rate to
letters addressed to our soldiers
on the continent, is a decided reduction in favor of correspondence going to the soldiers.

The steel is being rapidly laid
towards Lillooet, and unless something unforeseen happens will be
here by the 15th of this month.
The operating department are
making arrangements for running a mixed freight and passen-%
ger service to Lillooet as soon as
the tracks have been completed.
Trains are now being operated to
West end of Anderson lake, 87
miles from Squamish. Lillooet
is 120 miles from the Howe Sound
terminal and approximately one-
quarter of the distance to Fort
George, the junction point with
the Grand Trunk Pacific and the
main objective point of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway.

Well Dene Canada!
From London Daily Mail
The statement issued by the
Prime Minister of Canada tells
in the simplest and most business-like language, and without
the least attempt at rhetoric, a
tale that is among the most stir-
ing of these stiring times. Already the Dominion has placed
33,000 men at the service of the
service of the Empire, 8,000 are
engaged in garrison and outpost
duty in Canada itself, 50,000
more will shortly be under training, and an additional 17,000 are
to be enlisted as soon as the second contingent goes forward.
"Thereafter," adds the Prime
Minister, " the forwarding of
further expeditionary forces will
be followed by the enlistment of
men to take their places." That
is all. No bombast or excitement. Just a bare record of
what Canada is doing, and means
to keep on doing in this hour of
Great and Greater Britain's peril.
In that restraint and matter-of-
fact courseness there speak the
strength and confidence of an
Imperial people.

London, Feb. 2 - The Rotterdam correspondent of "The
Times" says he has received indisputable information that the
German cruiser Sedylitz was very
seriously damaged in the battle-
on January 34 in the North Sea.
He adds that it suffered a very
heavy death roll.
A despatch to the "Morning
Post" from Petograd say that

Gazelle recently in the Baltic Sea.
also sunk a German gunboat, and
that, as a result of their activity
the German warships pre no
longer moving about in the Baltic with their former freedom.
Amsterdam, Feb 2-The Berliner Tageblatt in an issue which
has reached here declares that
the council of Greater Berlin has
appointed 12,000 special constables to guard the baker shops
of the city against any irregularities on the part of the public.
London, Feb. 3.—Copenhagen
newspapers, some of which still
have correspondents at Constantinople, have a report that the
Anglo-French fleet has destroyed
four of the Dardanelles forts and
that there is a panic in the Turkish capital, where the defeats
suffered by the Turkish armies in
the Caucasus and in Azerbaijan
are just becoming known.
At various points on the battle
front in Flanders and France the
Germans again have started offensive movements with the object of capturing the positions
Held by the Allies or penetrating
their lines. Paris asserts that in
most of these attempts the Germans have been held and that to
north of Chalons, as in the Vos-
ges, near Burnhaupt - Le -Bas,
progress has been made by the
French forces.
The Austrian government has
notified all neutral states that the
cpmmancler of the troops operating' against the Russians has been
instructed to shoot as rebels and
traitors aJl Rumanian inhabitants
of Transylvania or Bukowna who
_.re captured while serving as
volunteers with the Russians.
The London Globe, in an editorial denounces the captain of
the German armoured cruiser
Bluceer, which was sunk in the
North Sea on January 24, as a
pirate and demands his trial on a
charge of murdering women and
children at Scarborough.
As a result of Germany's confiscation of grain and flour to
conserve the nation's food supply, the British fleet has been ordered to treat cargoes of grain
and flour destined for Germany
and Austria as conditional contraband and subject to seizure.
The American Ambassador at
London has so informed the State
Department at Washington.
Canada has requested through
the British Ambassador at Washington the extradition of Warner
Von Horn, for attempting to destroy a Canadian Pacific Railway
bridge connecting Maine and the
province of New Brunswick.
French airmen yesterday dropped bombs on the famous Hom-
berg castle in Alsac, where a
group of important German staff
officers were residing. The building was set on fire and burned to
the ground.
The Germans have issued a
warning that an attempt will be
made to sink British transports
and advise neutral shipping to
keep away from the north and
west coasts of France.
There is once more a Sultan
of Egypt, as there was long cen-
tuaries ago, but it is very doubtful whether there will be any
Sultan of Turkey when the worldwide war is over.
The hegemony of Islam is passing from the Turks who have
forfeited the prede-minant position they have held so long in the
Mahommedan world. The Mussulman peoples, ever jealous of
the dignity of their faith, have
quickly repudiated the declaration
| of a Holy war promulgated from
Stamboul. But Turkish forces
will end by quarrelling among
themselves,aiid they will perhaps
wreak their wrath upon the bullying German officers who have betrayed them to destruction.
When Constantinople is eclipsed it will not be surprising if the
centre of influnce in Islam passed
once more to Cario, the old home
of the Caliphate until the Turks
seized the Holy Relics and carried them to Bosphorus.
New Map
A recent addition of an Elevator Map just issued from the Department of the Interior shows
some very interesting information
with respect to the storage and
transportation facilities, for the
handling of the annual grain production of the three Western
Provinces. The map shows the
elevator capacity at each station
on the different lines of railways,
arid, in order to simplify the location of the various places, each
railway system has been shown
in a separate colour.
In addition to complete information regarding elevators the
publication includes valuable railway information with respect to
lines in operation, under construction, and located.

Double-Faced  Hun
From —London Daily Mail
The outside world has al-
read, and in no uncertain
-terms, expressed its judgement of the German raid upon Scarborough and Whitby,
and Mr. Churchill in his pardonable vehement letter to
the mayor of the former resort states the British view
of the incident in his own
slashing style. Even where
credit is given, and rightly
given, to the skill and daring
with which the whole enterprise was planned and carried out, neutral opinion is
unanimous in condemning the
shelling of unfortified towns
as an act of sheer barbarism.
The Germans themselves,
however, appear to be in two
minds on the subject. On the
one hand, their admiralty, as
though to anticipate criticism
unblushingly declared that
Whitby and Scarboro' were
fortified. We have too much
respect for their spy system
to think for one moment that
they did not know better.
The lied deliberately, but the
fact that they lied is not so
interesting as the possible
reasons for it. Was it because they suspected that the
truth might raise a qualm
even in the seasoned conscience of their own people
and that German opinion, if
such a thing still exits, would
recognise that the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians,
of women and children, was
a form of warfare that scarcely showed Teutonic culture
at its best?
We wish we could believe
that this was the explanation
and that German officialdom
saw in the atrocitysomething
too gross to be frankly admitted. But our correspondent at Copenhagen throws
another light on the problem.
He declares that this question
of bombarding open towns
has been a matter not only
of discussion but of disagreement in the German navy,
that the non-Prussian officers
have been averse from it,
but that their views have been
overruled by the Admiralty
after consultation with the
Kaiser. In practice, therefore, Germany will continue
to net as she acted; but she
will hide her guilt from her
own people. Her policy apparently is both to commit

the crime and to deny it.
It is a muddle-headed policy and can only end by bringing upon her a double retribution. The oftener she repeats, or attempts to repeat,
the massacre of noncombat-
ants the sterner will grow
the resolution of Great Britain and her Allies to reduce
her to a state that will render her incapable of similar e-
normities in the future; and
the more completely, too,
will the general sense of civilised mankind turn against
her. In the long run, also,
there will be the great mass
of the decent German folk to
reckon with. They may not
know at present how they
are being bamboozled or what
offences against humanity
have been committed in their
name. But sooner or later
they will know, and the revelation will be no small part
of the awakening of the German people which must inevitably follow from this
war. What will the German
rulers answer when their
own subjects convict them of
having practiced an inhuman
terrorism that yet did not
terrify, that was lied about
but still persisted in, and that
fastened upon the German
■name a load of universal execration?

STEPHEN & J. RETASKET. THE PROSPECTOR
Australians In Egypt
The arrival of the second
Australian contingent in
Egypt is opportune, in view
of the proposed Turkish invasion. These volunteers
have had about three months
training at home in addition
to the drill performed under
the compulsory law. Like
the first Australian contingent they will have further
training in Egypt, but even
at this moment they are
doubtless superior in discipline to the Turkish army of
invasion, The Turks are
not to be compared with the
Germans either in personal
efficiency, or dicipiine, or e-
quipment, and it may be
considered safe to allow the
Australians to meet them in
their present state of training. This contingent will
bring the number of Australians and New Zealanders
in Egypt considerably above
40,000, or nearly 50,000 if
there is a second New Zealand contingent.—Advertiser
