Milt joined up early in 1918 but  owing to poor health on his arrival  overseas he was detained in England  most of the time, only reaching  France a short time before the armistice was signed.  Another returned soldier got off the  train here on Tuesday in Pte. Jas.  Long, who joined up with the 102nd  Battalion late in 1915, and getting  overseas in the early summer of the  following year. Jim figured in the casualties, being badly gassed, and since  recovering from the effects of it he  has been at Forestry work. He looks  considerably older as a result of the  military life, but otherwise is the  same old Cronje.  About twenty members of the Creston Presbyterian Laidies' Aid paid an  unexpected social visit to Mr. and  Mrs. Birney on Wednesday last when  various lines of o^nuseuient were indulged in, along with a lunch, and  most enjoyable time is reported by all.  Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Long and   Miss  J"i������������-������o Trfijior nroi'p vieif-rvi'S   at. Snoknnp n.  few days last week.  Pulleta Making  Owners $1 Month  March Session of  Boar  Trade  Fifteen members were out for the  March meeting of the Creston Board  of Trade on Tuesday night, which was  7xx.n���������Zjt;xA     ���������..������-.

Two new members were elected.  They "a^''":Sr'''"'G'rFo^e'"rtian"''ani3 "Jas;  Cook, which brings the board's 1919  membership up to 34 at present. The  only communication was one from the  Creston Great War*JVeterans asking  for a joint meeting   of   the G.W.V.A.  An interesting comparison as to  whether the average householder who  handles poultry as a sideline is better  off with a dozen hens or so or a flock  of several dozens of them is furnished  in the January and February egg-laying statements from the flocks kept  by Mrs. K. Andrew and Mrs. W. V.  Jackson, both of them are handling  Rose Comb Rhode Island Reds.  Ou the Andrew place but 23 pullets  are kept, and during January these  laid 388 eggs, .witiva showing of 385 for  February, matting the grand total 773  eggs for the twenty-three birds.  The Jackson flock numbers 105 pullets, and these gaye 1421 eggs in January and 1450in February or a grand  total of 2871 from 105 birds;  Figured out on the average per hen  the smaller flock has the best of it,  the Andrew birds showing 17 eggs  per bird for each month, while the  Jackson flock's average was but 14  per bird.  It will be noted by the figures, how-  ! ever, that the Jackson birds greatly  increased the monthly output in February, considering the month has but  twenty-eight days, while the reverse  was the case \yith the Andrew pen.  The figures foi* the month of March  will be worth haying just to keep tab  on this feature of the contest.  Both lots of birds, however, aro to  be commended for their fine showing  in January, -when eggs were marketed  as high as 80 cents in some cases, with  75 cents the prevailing price in Feb  ruary. Pullets that average 14 and 17  eggs a month'at these prices certainly  | earn their Jfee^-'-e^ep at the present  high price of grain. Worked out on  these selling prices the Andrew hens  made their owner about $50 for two  months, and the Jackson ranch had  an income of aimost $185, from the  Same source.  mildness of the atmosphere the birds  are thriving in an open pen and on a  diet that includes a ration of snow.  How about you, Wynndel ?  Word reached here from Flight  Lieut. Boydell last week that he is  making a slow but sure recovery from  the damage done him when his* machine took a few thousand feet drop  some months ago. He has heard that  the fire wardens in B.C. are to make  the rounds in flying machines in future and has made application to the  lands department for a position. Aeroplanes are so numerous in England  that the war department is selling  them as low as 80 quid, as Boydell  puts' it.  Segt. Earl Pease arrived back on  Saturday after almost two years  khaki, twenty months of which was  spent with the Forestry corps which  left Creston under Major Mallandaine  in April, 1917. Earl never looked better in his life, his military life rounding him into about as skookurn a volunteer as joined up in the Valley during the war. He will be here for a  couple of weeks and then go on to  Vancouver for his discharge.

K.  Chorlton, assisted by tfte Creston orchestra and two lady soloists.  The programme submitted had the  merit of being high class and yet not  classical. Many of the numbers were  familiar, and the balance of a nature  that won the applause of an audience  that comfortably filled the Auditorium, with R. Lamont presiding as  chairman.  Decided improvement in the orchestra's playing under Mr. Chorlton's  leadership was noted in each of the  three numbers presented, "The Dawn  of Love" receiving a particularly ar-  tisitc rendering for an organization  that has previously deyoted most, of  its effort to dance music The opening overture "Thfe Best Yet," owing  to it its popular composition largely,  was the hit of the eyening of course.  The eyening's vocal honors .were  quite evenly divided between Mrs, H.  B. Downs and Miss Frances Knott.  The latter had two well-chosen numbers in "The Rosary" and "Sunshine of  Your Smile"���������the 'cello obligato to  the former greatly enhancing the  beauty of an always appreciated selection. Mrs. Downs' was heard lo  splendid advantage particularly in her  second number, "A Year Ago," which  she   sang   with   pleasing   expression,  da7night; March"l7th' in*the" A^ j Z���������*.??*1*?.JS*8*^* .intfTl?coteii  Mrs. W.

The secretary will notify the Veterans that any date suitable to them for  such get-together will be satisfactory  to the Board.  .,   A letter from John  Keen,   M.P.P.,  11s well as ii telegram from the new  comptroller of water rights indicated  the Arrow Creek irrigation scheme  has not beenlost track of. The latter  wired as to possible date for the finishing up the survey and getting busy on  the preparation of a report. The board  advised that shortly after the first of  April things should be in shape to get  busy again.  Messrs. Hayes and Bennett of the  publicity cnimiiitt.cv reported that a  half box of apples had been sent all  the papers published the Crow line  as far up as Claresholm. Along with  the fruit went a half-column article  dealing with the Valley's fruit crop of  1918 and prospects for 1910. Of 12 papers favored with apples ten of them  had run the article sent, including the  Medicine Hut Daily News and the  Lethbridge Daily Herald.  A repast showing   the traffic   handled oyer the Kootenay River ferry the  l past   seven   months    was   submitted,  showing a very   .steady   use   of   that  moans of transport.  It was decided to  hayeA'h'' roads and bridges commit tee  interview government engineer  Ramsay on his next yiHit hero asking   that  a bigger ferry he built and a   gasoline  engine installed to operate   the   mime.  The hoard'!* attention was called   to  Ihe fact   that    the   government   tele  phone people are calling   for   fenders  , for a .supply of pole:; to uue on  the line  from  Wynndel to Sirdar.   At   present  ' the wirev,- are stroiif!* on the tree?!  over  { that, pail of the line, hut, excellent hiiI-  i isfactinn is being given just  (he same.  1 The board  Will    callllie    attention    nf  Before a fairly large audience in the  Mercantile Hall last night R. Crowe  Swords delivered a stirring lecture on  the atrocities of the Huns, going into  the ghastly details in such a manner  as tn hold the close -attention of his  hearers.  He also made a very strong appeal  that more consideration be shown returned men, particularly nerve cases,  by employers of labor, and not for the  employers to brand "tlie majority of  returned men as being unreliable simply because of the unsatisfactory behaviour of a few.  Mr. Crowe Swords spoke at length  of the splendid work done by the Vocational Department of the Soldiers'  Ciyil Ro-EstahliKhnient in the re-education of men disabled through war  service, advising all men who may be  incapacitated as to he unable to follow  their former occupations to at once  get, into   touch with   the  department.  Lieut. R. Sinclair-Smith was chairman, and spoke  briefly of some of his  experiences. A collection wns taken  at the close for the widows and orphans which amounted to $25.  orium, the first part of the eyening's  entertftin*menti4^-^art~pnnntrt'--"i"i<*t' g  o'clock.  The affair is directly in the hands of  a committee of nine. Mesdames Compton, Cherrington and Bronsson representing the Red Cross Society; Mesdames Cook, Maxweii and J. W.  Hamilton for the Women's Institute,  and Messrs. R. B. Staples. Haves and  A. R. Swanson as the citizens' delegation, with the lattei? as chairman of  the committee of the whole.  A number of meetings have been  held and it is decided  that., the   even-  "Perfect Day," the effect of which was  high ten ed .by the .'cello obligato by  Mr. Chorlton.  Miss Kane and Mr.   Chorlton    mads  a decided hit in their 'cello   duet   and  obliged to respond with'a well-deserved encore.    Mr. Chorlton   made   four  appearances as a^'eejlo soloist,   whle h  afforded considerable scope to display  his ability on the instrument. Each of  J,hem were splendidly   executed.    His  more   serious   number,   "Ava Maria"  was   given   with   feeling,   while   the  lighter offering, "'Hiunorsake." was e-  qually skilfully interpreted.    A stanza  of "Nearer My God to Thee" done   to  imitate a pipe organ gave ample  evidence of the performer's all-iound ability as a  'cellist.    The accom pa pistes  were Mrs. Foreman  and  Mrs. Downs.  Following the concert a  few hours  dancing was  provided,   with   the   orchestra supplying the music,   and   the?  j hi dies providing lunch.    This   featmo  of the evening also   attracted   a   fine  crowd, about fourteen Porthiil  young  people being amongst the dancing enthusiasts.  Announcement that another concert will be giyen, possibly in May,  will be heard with interest. Not only  will the public be glad to have the opportunity of listening to another well-  balanced progranie, but the more critical will then have the opportunity to  judge of Mr. Chorlton's ability as an  orchestra conductor���������with Friday  night's standard to judge by. *���������  Mi'M.

At  the last cabinet meeting it was decided, after a discussion, that China's  Peace representatives should be instructed not to divulge thc twcnt3r-  ouc demands and thc other secret  Chinese-Japanese treaties.  Tsso Yu-lin, minister of communication, who is .strongly pro-Japanese,  and the official who is responsible for  the majority of the secret transactions, stated that the reason why  China must work in with Japan was  because Japan had a position in the  "big'five"   and   that   Japan   had     ar-  S*'fi'1'*S������5������J5  Am. m-mW   ���������������'&."*%">!!

"A  general  policy  of   good ���������roads  and better travelling facilities generally would not only bring about     a  closer  union   between   the  people   of  the   East and of the West,    but    it  would very materially lessen thc farmer's cost, of marketing his wheat.   I  am given to understand  that it now  costs the farmer in Western   Canada  fifty cents per ton per mile to move  his grain from his farm to the elevator,  whereas it costs him only one-  half cent per ton per mile to   move  it  from thc  elevator to  the head  of  the  lakes.     Good  roads    -would     do  much also  to  improve thc    farmer's  condition,  making him  and  his  wife  and family more contented, and be a  means of reducing the number of lunatics, many cases being reported from  the Prairie Provinces of persons losing their reason as thc result of the  absolute loneliness that prevails; and  would do much not only to draw the  East and West together, but to draw  the people from the cities and towns  and those from thc countrj"- districts  closer together.  "Good roads and good hotels should  be the mcaiis of bringing into Canada  during thc summer months large  numbers of tourists from the United  States, and when one realizes what  the tourist trade means to southern  California, one can easily see that it  would be a very large asset to Cana-  d'ji. if w.-* f^f.'ild h.avc n c.fvcrifin of motors carrying our brothers-in-arms  from the south, touring Canada and  incidentally spending their money  here. This tourist trade woidd be  the means of improving the hotels  and would enable, the farmers and  market gardeners, etc., to increase  and improve their products and to  dispose, of them on the spot to the  highest purchaser, namely, the tour  ist.  "'Then, too, it seems to me that the  law makers of Canada (this does not  mean only thc ministers of the crown,  but all  men  who sit in   parliament)  should feel it their bounden  duty  ';o  have a  general  idea,    from  personal  observations and knowledge,  of    the  whole country, and, while thcy arc at  Ottawa  to   represent  a   certain   constituency, they should    rcali*rc     that  they  arc   there  in   the   eyes   of      the  nation and of thc world to make thc  laws for thc Dominion of Canada aud  that they cannot be wisely and   well  made  unless  those    who  made  the in  know something of this vast country.

The cost of this change has to be  reckoned in lives of men as well as  untold treasvxre.  Canada, also, will have to change  her atlas, not by a shuttling of iron-  tiers and borderlines, but by thc tilling in of a large vacant space hitherto represented on maps somewhat  vaguely as Arctic regions, yet within  the boundaries of the Dominion.  This change too, has been brought  about at the cost of thc lives of  Hauntlcss men, apart from a long bill  in coin of thc realm, but Canada, as  a result, will know more of herself,  and thc work accomplished by these  sturdy explorers will stand for ever  as a monument to their courage, daring and skill.  After five ycars, spent in exploring  the vast, previously unknown territory of thc Arctic regions, Vilhjal-  mur Stefansson, commander-in-chief  of thc Polar expedition which left  Canada in June, i9i3, has arrived in  Ottawa and reported officially to  Deputy Ministe Desbarats, of thc  department of naval service. Stef-  ansson's work has resulted in the  collection of valuable- scientific information and data.  Stefansson left Ottawa in the  month of May, 1913, and preceded  to the coast, leaving Victoria in  June. He was commissioned by the  department of naval service to _ explore the then unexplored regions  north of Alaska and west of the  known Canadian islands.  Thc maim vessel of the expedition  was the ili-fated Karluk, and, in addition, smaller gasoline vessels were  added to the expedition at Nome,  consisting of thc Alaska, Polar Bear  and Challenge.  The expedition was financed entirely byvthe Canadian government  and during thc period of exploration  there were approximately one hundred men in thc service. Thc average  number of men with thc expedition  at any. one time was between sixty  and seventy.  "On board the Karluk was what  was probably thc finest scientific apparatus and equipment of any Polar  expedition. Thc government spared  no expense in fitting us out with the  most modern equipment, and all this  was lost. Thus our expedition was  badly crippled. Our source of supplies was cut off by this disaster and  wc lived on thc country, travelling by  slcd."  Asked of the approximate area of  thc region visited, Stefansson said it  was about 1,000,000 square miles, of  which perhaps 400,000 square miles  had been explored.  There were   thirteen  scientific  spc  cral, Stefansson stated that he could  be quite as comfortable in the northern regions as elsewhere. "I merely  adjust my living to thc conditions,'*  he said, with a smile. "Hardships  and sickness are largely a matter of  the wind. If one thinks or imagines  that hc is suffering terrible privation  and worries about imaginary illness,  then hc will'worry himself into the j  real  thing."  Mr. Desbarats, deputy minister of  the department of naval service, paid  tribute to the explorer, and thc manner in which he had accomplished his  object.  "The publication of the. scientific  matter is under way," said Mr. Desbarats, "and the amount of matter is  enormous.  "Stefansson has added to Canada  several unknown lands in thc Arctic  regions; hc has done exceptionally  valuable work by exploring oceans."  Of thc commercial possibilities,  Mr. Desbarats stated that the explorer found that musk ox existed in  certain regions, and had a theory  that there might be some industrial  possibilities there. Stefansson had  discovered coal. Also there was  copper in great quantities, and the  members of the southern expedition  had reported favorably to their leader of this valuable mineral. Thc geological survey of Canada had co-operated with thc department of naval  service in the expedition, and had  a careful study of the minerals in  that section of thc north.  Asked if many men had been lost  on the expedition} Mr. Desbarats  stated that, with thc loss of the Karluk, there had been a serious loss of  life.  "Three prominent scientists and  two other scientific experts died on  Wrangle Angle from exposure. Malleoli, of Hamilton, died there. Then  Dr. Mackay, Murray, and Beuchag,  all noted scientists, left the party,  after thc .wreck, and in their attempt to gain land thev were lost in  the Arctic night, and have never  been heard of since. I  "Thc expedition was a complete  success," said thc deputy minister,  "and even more than we hoped for  has been accomplished."  H  i  Foot Shows Finer  Development Than Hand  Shows the Difference Between  Man  and Monkey  A defender of thc lowly foot has  come in thc person of the Journal of  Heredity.    Says thc Journal:  "The human hand, a strangely, almost shockingly, primitive survival,  has received enormous px-aisc mistakenly lavished by thc philosopher  and the anatomist; but the hunian  foot, a . wonderfully modified and  distinctly human member, has had  but scant appreciation. . .- Thc foot  is apt to be regarded as a poor relation of thc hand, as a thing which,  once being far more useful, has degenerated, within the narrow confines of a boot, into a rather distorted  and somewhat useless member. * Although in modern man the boot has  had its definite influence (as in limiting thc possibilities of the power ot  grasp) such generalisations concerning thc human foot arc very far from  true. If man should wish to point  with pride to any organ, thc structure of which definitely severs him  from all other existing primates, it  is to the foot he should point. If  'missing links' arc to bc traced with  complete success, thc foot, far more  than thc skull or the teeth, or thc  shins, will mark them as monkey or  man. Thc weakness of Achilles lay  in his heel; thc weakness of thc arboreal primate masquerading as man  lies in the structure of the foot. It  is the foot which differentiates between man and monkey."  A Gillette enthusiast has boldly -Stated his belief that the famous  razor has caused a complete revolution in social life in the rural  districts today!  It is true, as he says, thaf one cannot now distinguish between the city man  and his brother in the country.  But do not give all the credit to the Gillette Safety Razor.

Zhna.n  r**  Cattle  Bill Results  Inspectors for the department of  Agriculture were busy branding: cattle at the Kdmonton stockyards that  have been bought under thc provisions of thc Alberta cow bill. During thc month of September a total  of $29,739 was loaned under the pro-                .      visions of this  bill.      Five    hundred  cialists attached to  thc party, and  it   and thirteen cattle were bought with  Germans Failed to Get Oil .  Germany expected to get great  quantities of oil from the Baku district, through her "treaty" with Rus-,  sia, but she has been disappointed. In  thc last six months the oil output  dropped to a third what it was last  year. Food difficulties caused 5,000  drillers to quit work and boring was  decreased 60 per cent, as compared  with last year. Despite this great  quantities of oil are stored at Baku���������  probably more than 1,600,000 tons���������  but thc transport, conditions arc so  demoralized that it cannot be moved.  And now Germany will never get it.  Jerusalem Fell to Two Tommies  Major Allen Burgoyne, lecturing  before thc Roval Photographic Society, told a story of thc surrender  of Jerusalem. He said that the city  was actually surrendered to a couple  of British regimental cooks, who  were out trying to get .some salad,  when thc Arabs came out with th*.  keys of the city. One Tommy asked  what thev were expected to do with  thc keys  of  thc "blinkin"  city."  Major Burgoyne said that thc  scene was accounted so historic that  it was reconstructed and photographed.  Good Yields on College Farm  Among thc reports of threshing  outputs received by thc Manitoba  department of agriculture, probably  thc premier place so far has been  taken by thc agricultural college  farm. Specially is this true in tho  case of thc oat crop.  Thc colllegc farm is used largely to  produce pasture and winter feeds for  thc large college herd, but in addition to forage crops the following  have been threshed:  Wheat yielded 40 bushels per acre.  Oats yielded 103 bushels per acre.  Barley yielded 80 bushels per acre.  ^"f4tfVf,|-|'-(l^l.mr'.llll4.,lll4W.llB411ll.4JM||41    was necessary, thc explorer explained, to go all over the world to secure these technical cxpuils.

in   tne
scheme for the draining of Sumas
lake in the Fraser valley, and
which will thus render a large area
of splendid land productive.
The plan is of great merit, and
in this regard, as in respect to the
South Okanagan land scheme, the
provincial gpvernment is entitled
to commendation for the -steps
Equally, if not more important,
is the reclamation scheme for the
south end of Kootenay lake, and
the carrying out of which will render available for cultivation and
production a large, area of the
choicest land at the north and
south ends of   Kootenay    lake,   as
well as reticle1* less liable of flooding
during high water periods of various points along the lake from Nelson to Lardo.
When a special commission from
the territory affected visited Victoria in conuection with this matter a few weeks ago, in order to impress upon the government the des-1 to mauve proper^attention by cabinet
ministers to allegations empowered,
to wait upon them in the interests of
the returned soldiers.  *
A women's auxiliary to the Cr-eston
Branch v?as also discussed, but this
was tabled pending further enquiry
and the gathering of move information.
Therefor be it resolved, that we the
the Oreston Branch of the G.W.V.A.
earnestly petition the government to
exempt all soldiers from taxation for
the period of such soldiers service in
the forces of the empire.
The meeting went on record as being highly dissatisfied with the treatment accorded to delegations by the
government, and will use every effort

In fact it is stated that the reception given by Mr. Pattulo was discourteous. Premier Oliver, on the
contrary, appeared to be sympatic
etically inclined, and is reported to
have "called down" his lieutenant
for the way he acted.
The Kootenay reclamation
scheme is as fully deserving of consideration as^the Sumas scheme or
the South Okanagan land scheme.

Creston's Great War "Veterans Association had a full turnout for their
regular meeting on March 1st, which
was heid in the board of trade room**.
After the regular routine of business
had been disposed of a number of resolutions directly effecting the return
ed men's interests were taken up. The
first of these deals with the Reclarn-
ation of Kootenay Flats, and was endorsed as follows:
Whereas the Provincial Government
has spent many thousands of dollars
for engineers and surveyors reports on
the lands known as the Kootenay
And whereas, by failing to investigate to a conclusion the feasibility of
reclaiming the above-mentioned lands
the fruit of au enormous expenditure
is wasted.
And whereas the Provincial Government gave many solemn pledges that
any man enlisting for the service of
his country need have no anxiety for
the future of his dependents or for
himself, as their welfare wonld be the
concern of the country.
And whereas the Provincial Government has repeatedly stated its intention of placing upon the land any of
the eligible returned soldiers who wish
to be so placed.
And whereas many returned soldiers
die desirous of settling in the Kootenay district but are held in a state of
uncertainty owing to the government s
attitude with regard to available lands.
And whereas the Reclamation of
Kootenay Flats would make 30,000
acres of land available for soldier settlement.
And whereas the features of reclamation would provide work for a great
number of returned soldiers.
And whereas this reclamation would
solve two of the important problems
now facing the government, viz:
WORK for the returned soldier and
LAND for the returned soldier.
Be it resolved. That the Proyincial
Government be requested to put an
end to uncertainty, and to make an
honest attempt to, carry out bhe spirit
of their solemn pledges. To use every
endeavor toward making the Kootenay Flats available for soldier settlement. Not to waste public monies by
leaving an attempted task half completed.    And  to   take   the   necessary

resolutions that met with a favorable
reception from the members were also

Sandon. ������ Premier Lloyd George
spoke again on tlie genera! peace situation. The occasion was brought
atbout by the Capt. thc Hon. Rupert
Guinness, Unionist, asking -whether
the premier was prepared to press to
the utmost, reparation from Germany
and also to make Germany pay to the
ftilS extent of her resources. He also
pressed for more information as to
*he status of the British colonies v,i
ih~ peace conference.
"We have had far too much of the
particular panacea which America is
supporting at the conference," said
Captain Guinness. "Since the daj-s of
Mahomet, no prophet has been listened to with more superstitious respect
than President Wilson."
Mr. Lloyd George began his reply
by saying that reparation by Germany was the election "pledge given
by thc government after careful consideration by the cabinet. The government, he said, stood by every
word of this pledge.
The'premier, defending the pledges
of the peace conference, -said the government has been devoting its time
to speeding up agreements. He was
- sanguine that a complete agreement
would be reached concerning the
German western boundary, but the
eastern-boundary was a different matter. Until the commission sent to
examine the matter reported, the allies would be in no position to make
demands upon Germany.
Thc conference was unanimous, hc
said, that Germany had forfeited all
rights   to   her  colonics.
Mr. Lloyd George contended that
���with regard to indemnities, the British government was in advance of
anJn government, as it was the first
to appoint a committee to deal with
this matter.
He declared that there had never
been any proposal advanced at the
peace    conference    to  recognize  the

Kidney   Disease   and   Lame
Back���Two Interesting
Lindalc, Alta., Feb. 19.---It is only
after sickness that one properly appreciates health. The writers of
these letters show how they appreciate the means whereby health ' was
regained, aud recommend tlie use of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to
If kidney disease is to be cured it
must bc taken in hand early, aud
that is why the warning given by
backache,   headache   and   urinary   dc-
half o�� Europe, and nearly half of
Asia, and, he pointed out, if peace
were not made, the whole of this immense territory would be seething in
anarchy, disorde? and bloodshed;
there would be no peace in the world.
The Bolshevists, the premier asserted, were assassins, guilty of the
crimes laid to their charge. The allies had given the anti-Bolshevist governments financial support and assistance. Much of their equipment had
been supplied by the allies, who were
anxious to keep the rich territories of
Russia out of German hands.
If troops were to be sent to Russia, who would send them? America,
he said, would send neither men,
money nor material, and the work
would fall upon the British and
The Bolshevist machinery in Russia was ruthless and brutal, but there
was no doubt about its efficiency and
it was the only machinery there. Everybody in the past who had interfered in Russia had come to grief.
There was no idea of recognizing the
Bolshevists; it was quite impossible
to do so as long as they were -ouv-
suing their present methods.
It might be argued, he said, that
the Bolshevist is governed by terror.
The same could be said of the French
revolution. He was unable-to disclose
the figures that intervention would
involve, but, after seeing them, no
sane man. he.declared, would advise
the allies, after five ycars of war, to
undertake thc enterprise. The Bolshevist military power had grown,
while both England and Germany
were too occupied to attack it and it
was strong.
"And if ��� we won, how long would
we occupy the country?" he asked,
"and what guarantee would there be
that when we withdrew, a dependable
government would bc set up?"
Referring to alternative of allowing the fire in Russia to burn itself
out, the premier characterized this as
a brutal policy, and added that it
would be useless to send food to
Petrograd when the only disturbing
organization was Bolsheviki. Supporting the Prinkipo alternative, the
premier argued that it was by no
means unknown on the northern
frontier of India to parley with brigands and even assassins. The Bolshcviki system could not last forever and, in the meantime, he was
informed, the threat of intervention
was driving the moderate element Into Bolsheviki hands.
Hc urged that the allies must do
their best in thc interest, not only
of Russia, but also of Great.Britain
and of the world, to restore order
and good government in that distracted country.
Object of Meetings Cannot Be Ascertained 	
Amcrongen> Holland. ���There have
been various indications during the
last v/eek that Count Hohenzollern,
the former German emperor, is maintaining communication with his former supporters.
Two secretaries of the German legation at the Hague, Koester and
Schieibach, visited the castle, at
Amerongcn and stayed over night,
having a long conference with Count
Hohenzollern and Hans von Guntard,
the sole remaining high functionary
of the old imperial court. He remains faithful to the former emperor. Baroness von Rosen, the
English wife of the German minister
to Holland, is still at the castle.
The object of these meetings cannot be ascertained. Further departures of the former emperor's domestics occurred during the last week,
some of them, however, being replaced by new arrivals from Berlin.
The German government has given
notice to all state servants in attendance on the former emperor and
his wife that they must place themselves at the disposal of the government by April 1 or forfeit all claims
for pensions. Countess ICell
remains with the former empress.
Paris. ��� The Belgian claim-
as placed before the supreme
council included % demand for
the return to Belgium of some
territory held by Germany in
addition to requests for free
navigation of the Scheldt and
the restoration of certain territory held by the Dutch. The
German districts demanded are .
Montjoie and Malmedy, just
east-of the present Belgian-
German border. The population
of these districts . ia mainly
. Walloon and their possession
by Belgium, it was pointed out,,
would deprive Germany of an
outlet for a new invasion of

Paris. _��� Lord Robert Cecil, the
British representative on the league
of nations commission, denied thc report spread in Paris that the league
of nations commission had approved
the creation of an international army
and that the United States and Great
Britain had conceded the point to
Lord Robert Cecil said that in his
opinion the commission would decline
moreover, to approve any such plan.
He added that such a report must
have originated from an encmv of
thc peace conference.
Reds Invade Japan
T'okio. ��� It is reported that Bolsheviki are daily pouring into Japan
to the great consternation of the local
police, who are trying by every
means to prevent harm by the invaders. It is estimated that there are
400 of these undesirables, each possessed of plenty of money, living in
Yokohama and Tokio. Many of the
UHvyCiCOiKe visitors are planning to go
to America but are finding difficulty
in getting certificates.
Australia Will Assist Farmers
New German Ministry
Copenhagen. ��� According to despatches from Weimar, an agreement
has been reached by the German
national assembly on the composition of the new ministry "which will
consist of 14 members. Philip
Scheidemann has been selected chancellor. Dr. August Mueller, minister
of economics. Herr Bauer, minister
of labor. Herr Landberg, minister of
national defence and justice.
Par!*?, ��� Tfee German authorities
have been asked te furnish information confirming the amount of - the
war material, cannon, airplanes and
other equipment. This question came
up in ths recent sessions of the war
council, when the extent of this material was advanced as ��, reson for
taking effective measures against the
renewal of warlike activity.
. Before determining on any such
step, it was considered desirable to
request information, both as a memo,
dealing with the subject, and as testing the good faith of the enemy in
disclosing ^he status of his military
Although no official communication
was issued after the meeting of the
supreme war council, the Havas
Agency understands that the council
decided first to place Germany in a
military situation where it would be
impossible to recommence hostilities.
It is pointed out that thc enemy
countries are preserving war material
permitting them to equip very rapidly
an army of at least 3,000*000 men.
The council decided, secondly, according to Havas, "To make Germany
realize that we are the conquerors
and that it is not & 'White peace*
that we are seeking to impose oa
In case Germany submits with
grace, continues Havas, it is possible
that the entente would facilitate thc
resumption of the entente's works of
peace for the benefit of Germany.
Thc council also had to exchange
the demand by the Poles that a
clause be introduced into the armistice that agricultural machinery stolen by the enemy should be restored.
The council's program also contained questions of effectives and the
raising of the blockade concerning
Turkey and Bulgaria.

of trade and commerce from P. D.
Ross, Canadian trade commissioner
at Melbourne. He states that, independent of earlier guarantees, owing
to thc federal government not having reached a decision in the matter
thc commonwealth government has
decided to make advances of 97 cents
per bushel to farmers on the 1918-19
crop of recognized quality. This
guarantee immediately relieved the
state government from any liability
in making advances to farmers.
The advance will involve- a payment by the government of over
sixty million dollars in addition to

supply in Australia at 156,266,000
