Of course, .he could only work 12  months in any year.  The discoverers of this bit of alleged  graft do not in most cases openly state  that Mr. Forrester received this salary  for two months for which no services  eo'ttld be rendered in fact, but it was  implied that this extra .two' months  pay undoubtedly went to some party  or parties unknown or, mayhap, helped swell the campaign, fund.  The jFacts in the case are these: W.  C. Forrester has .been in the steady  employ of the attorney general's department since September, '1011, and  working from that date to March 31t  1914, would entitle him to-81 months'  pay. The Public Accounts show thai  payments wore made to him as follows:  Kaslo by the local Conservative Association.  Government roadwork will commence here on Monday with George  Leach in charge. About $2,000 will  be spent. ���������  A petition was circulated in Canyon  City this week receiving names of  voters who would like to see Bob  Long accept the Conservative nomination for Kaslo. R.

Early m the year the board of trade  had'unofficial information that the  company intended abandoning the  Port Hill-Creston section of the read,  but pending something definite no  move iroS mau6 in any u.i-recoioxi m  the matter.  Apparently there was '.something  to" the boards intelligence in the matter, but the move the company is said  to contemplate is far more sweeping  than anyone anticipated. According  to reports from Banners Ferry the G.  N. have in mind the abandonment of  tbe whole line from the Ferry to its  terminal beyond Creston.

"It is known positively that such action has been discussed by the higher  officials of the Great Northern at the  general office of -the company in St.  Paul, but it is not known whether the-  j^t%H#x_*aefcw������i.h^the approvai ordis-  approval of the majority of these officials".

Shaw and Traveling^Freight Agent  John Maher have both been over the  K. V. line recently, presumably on a  trip of investigation having to do with  the proposed plan to discontinue the  K. V. service. It In understood that  both these officials have recommended that the K. V. service be not discontinued.  "With the   first intimation   of the  plan to cake .on the Ji..

In the summer time tiie boats on  the Kootenai irlver would give service  but in the winter tlmo when the Kootenai Is frozen over the ranchers would  .have no way of eoiviimuilci-tion with  Bonners Fejriry' or oth-r points except  by wagon roads.

"The Kootenai Valley railway opens  up a territory of some 40,000 acres of  overflowed and cut-over land which  will be very productive when reclaimed and cleared."  Willie tho loss of tho K.

"My experiment is nearly finished  now," he said; "but for completion  your help is necessary. I have found  it interesting, though." He turned to  Dodd, and took an envelope from his,  desk and handed it to him. 'You can  go,"  he said.  Dodd stood for a moment as if hesitating,   and  there    was    something  strange in the look he gav-.* at Mr.  Hetherington and Hugh. Perhaps old  Mr. Siddle noticed this, for he pointed  to the door with a p-esture of impatience and command.    Clutching last  tho envelope the old man had given  him,  Dodd  left  the  room;   yet  ouca  again, on the very threshold, he paused to give his two recent companions  an ambiguous and yet eager look, a?  if there were something lhat, oven at  this last moment, he would like to tell  them. But without speaking he closed  the door a:nd went, and thoy heard Ids  steps as he descended the stairs without.    Mr. Siddle went to the window  and  stood  there  and    watched  him  como out below and pass through the  two wire fencos to where, at the gate  of tlio outer fence, a negro was waiting wtih a horse nnd buggy. In this  Dodd took ills place and drove away  towards   tho   northeast���������not   towarils  Athens���������at   a   great    speed.     Siddle  watched  lilm for  -. few ininutos till  the   immensity   of   the     prairie   had  swallowed him up, and then ho turned to Hugh and to Mr. Motherington,  with whom he was now alone.  "I hnto a man who will and who  won't," ho said. "But I havo waited  a long time for you."  "And your experiment?" asked Mr.  Hetherington, unablo to disguise his  eager impatience.  "Tho experiment is on the vcrgo of  completion," returned tho old man  with bis chilling and uncanny smile.  "You must go with me to my laboratory now to iiHftist me. fo concludo It.

His idea was that Siddle  meant to cause come explosion that  would destroy them, he himself taking care to make his -��������� scape first.

The price for grain will be three  cents a pound .for oats and the  same for wheat. This includes  transportation charges to Cranbrook. Farmers will have to pay  freight on grain secured by them  from Cranbrook to Creston.

Long Looks Likely  "Parmer's" letter in our last  issue is furnishing the Conservatives at this end of the Kaslo riding considerable food for thought.  It is from the pen of a careful student of political affairs who is.  shrewd enough to see that the Me-  Bride government cainiot be returned with the bands playing and the  Hags ilying unless great care is exorcised in the selection of Hlandard  'bearers.  He is far-sighted enough to see  that in the Koslo riding as elsewhere, most everything depends on  the man. Assuming this, is pre-eminently an agricultural constituency  and that agricultural development  is the only salvation for the province; that the present government  hat-fenneted one of the finest pieces  -if agricultural legislation the country has ever known, quite naturally  "Farmer" asks Kns'.o to return a  representative who has the host inn-rests of the agricultural elat-a at  heart���������along with a sense of justice for the other interests, on the  activity of which agriculture is to  a great extent dependent for its  prosperity.

Given a little more, fluency of  speech���������which he has the native  ability to acquire���������Mr. Wigen  would make a very acceptable minister of agriculture and the portfolio is vacant. If the McBride Government is returned, there will be  such a  scramble   among, the  old  among  guai'd for the place that Sir Richard could go farther and fare worse  than naming 0.~J.

Russian treasury bills  to the amount of ������10,000,000 issued  in London in the last few days had  besn oversubscribed.  Mr. Lloyd George said there was a  satisfactory amount of gold in London.

Great Britain, he  said, had advanceu ������32,000,000 for  Russian purchases in Great Britain  and elsewhere and Russia had a credit  of ������40,000,000 in London. France  also had made advances to' Russia-_|or  other similar ��������� purchases outside ox  the Russian  empire.  After alluding lo tbe fact that the  accqmulationvof gold in Great Britain  was the largest in the history of the  country, Lloyd Georgs added that  France and Russia also had accumulated great reserves, which had been  barejy.y-.to'ucliett^d'urlhg the war. Arrangements had be*-n made regarding  purchases by th allied. countries in  neutral markets whereby competition  was eliminated, efficiency was promoted and delays were prevented.  'The Rttssiaii  . *  Moral Triumph  plow Shining Before the World United  in Two Noble Determinations  A note to' the Russian budget bill  furnishes a remarkable illustration of  the social and economic, advantages  which sobriety���������even compulsory sobriety���������brings to a community.  In referring to the effect of the war  on industry, the finance minister says  that except in districts directly affected by the war .there has been no sensible diminution in the industrial output. The reason given is the increased  productivity of the worker owing to  the suppression of the sale of alcohol.  "This increased productivity has  reached from thirty to fifty per cent,  and compensates largely for the diminution in the number of workers due  to the call tb the colors."  Assuming that Russian human nature does not differ iaateriaiiy from  our own���������and judging by Mr. Stuart  Deacon's remark that his mornings  ���������work in the police court of a city  where the selling of drink is practically unrestricted was a nightmare  because of the number of cases having  their origin in excessive drinking���������  this increased industrial activity - in  Russia is certain to be accompanied  by a decrease in crime, accident, di_-  ease~"and mental weakness.  Russia never did a' braver thing-or  achieved a Sner triumph tha*:: .when  she abolished the state sale of alcohol.  By one word the Czar, who has always been a firm and earnest advocate of temperance, decreed that  never more should the unrestricted  sale of strong.drink take place in his  vast empire.  With the bqldness of* a righteous  cause., the Gzar swept away at a stroke  a state income of some ������80,000s0������0 a  year, and, of course, the chancellor of  the exchequer had to find this elsewhere. He did so by increasing almost all taxes, from land and houses  to matches and ciga-jette papers, and  on the liquors sold under comprehensive restrictions from three to six  times the former duties have been  imposed.  Vodka selling price has been raised  to 15s. a gallon, as against about 6s.  3d.; andv the rna_t excise from 3^>. to  7$. a pood to 18s. By rueiUi_-of these  increases a great portion of the deficit is wiped out,^-some little margin  being left for .the economic gains that  always follow when drink, money is  spent on better things.  Whatever Russia may have been in  the past, she is now shining before  Xm  DESIRE HAS BEEN CHERISHED  FOR MANY YEARS  Pr.  Eliot,  of  Harvard  University,, says  that Germany has had  Ambitions to become a World Power since I8.'0, and has  Ever sinceNbeen Working to this End  In the January issue of the Fra ap-1 view of Dr. Eliot, the German navv  pears the notable contribution to -the was not ready, aad knew that it was  literature of the war by Dr. Charles not ready, to throw down .the gauntlet  W. Eliot, president "emeritus of Har- - .   _        .  vard "University. Dr. Eliot brushes  aside the incidents of the murder of  the Austrian Archduke and the friction between Servi. and Austria and  Austria and Russia and asserts that  the prime  source of the present im  /  mense disaster is the desire on the  part of Germany for world-empire.  This desire, he says, has been cherished at different times by one European nationN*after another and none  that has once adopted/" t has ever  completely eradicated it. Prussia long  held this ambition, but was unable to  gratify it until 1870, because the German, people had been divided since,  the Thirty Y_ai3' War into a large  number of   eparate, more or less inde-  - -    . ^~j  -������*.__       1..---V       I, V       --.-_.~  marck she had obtained by war in  1864 and 1866 important accessions  to territory.  This contributed to the delusion  that was soon to seize the whole German people, namely, the belief that  world-empire was only to be obtained  by force of arms. Therefore, says Dr.  Eliot, united Germany has labored  with utmost intelligence and energy  to prepare the most powerful army  in -the world and to equip it for instant action in the most perfect manner that science and eager invention  Could contrive. To develop the supreme military machine, universa.1  conscription���������an outgrowta of the  conception of the citizens' army during the Revolution���������was necessary;  so that every young "man in Germany  physically competent to* bear arras  mighty receive the training of a soldier, whether he wished it or not, and  remain at the call of the government  for military duty during all his years  of competency even if h3 were the  only, son of a widow, or a widower  with little children, or the sole support of a family or other dependants.

Dogs are doing an ininienae service  with the French army as messengers,  .writes a war correspondent.  When war broke out. there was  , not a single dog messenger In the  French army, though the Paris police had used them, to advantage  But after the GermanB invaded  Frar.ce and numerous villages wero  devastated ��������� thousands of dogs found  themselves homeless. Many were  plckqd up as company mascots by  soldiers.  In their spare time tho men  amused themselves by touching the  dogs to carry lcnapsacks, canteens  and llnally messages from one  trench to another. ' Tho dogs not  only had an absolute disregard for  gun and riflo lire, but otforod an In-  Bignlilcnnt target. Thou tho -commanders .awoke to their vnluo.

At the opening of 1914  tlje Germap general staff was of opinion that the German army was the  best' and most powerful in the world,  and that it would do its share toward bcinging true the German ambition    toward    world-empire.    In    the  to Britain. . It needed a few years  more before if. coijld accomplfsh on  the sea what wag confidently expected of the army on land. Therefore  six months ago Germany egged Aus-  tria on in the belief that Britain  would not go to war. Her army she  considered to be, with the assistance  of the Austrian army, more than a  match for the land forces of France  and Russia, and her navy was strong  enough to cope with those of the  Double Entente. Britain's entry into  the war was something she had never  calculated upon.  Dr. Eliot continues to expound tha  German religion of valor, and to show  how it is a contradiction of the religion of Jesus of Nazareth. He then  iis'-no. e������s thp OefrnaT. eopt^Tstion that  the present v.-ar .*���������-. v/oged as ? d0<,&r_ne  against Russia. ne says: "Germany  has never dreaded or even respected  the military strength of Russia, and  the recent wars and threatenings of  war 'by Germany have not been dl- *  rected against Russia, but against  Denmark, Austria, France ..nd England. In her colonization enterprises  it is not Russia that Germany has  encountered but, England, France and  the United States. The frieridiy ad- '  vances made within the last twenty  .years by Germany to Turkey were not  intended primarily to strengthen Germany against Russia, but Germany  against Great Britain by Germany's  access by .land to India."  . Dr.*. Eliot says that the desirable -  outcomes of the*war are: "No world-  empire for any race or nation, np  more subjects, ao more executives,"  either permanent or temporary, with  power to throw their feHow-country-  men into war, no secret diplomacy  justifying the use for a profit of all  the lies, concealments, deceptions and  ambuscades which   are   an Inevitable  part of war and assuming to commit  nations on    international    questions,  -wiu   I_G   __-Lu-*������   vGu.SCr-p-.iG-i   &_Tl_lt-_   tlltlt  can. be launched _-i war by executives  without consulting independent -^representative assemblies. He believes  with Haveljck Ellis and other noted  public men that some sort of federated j_urape or league of the freer- nations which would secure the smaller  nations against.attack should be ono  of the outcomes "of the war. He admits that at the present time iti^lm-i  possible to say how such a consummation is to be brought about, but if  it is not accomplished or something  that will serve the same purpose," the  war will have been fought in vain.
