 Enderby, B. C, June 3, 1915  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 8; No. 14; Whole No. 368  I)  is _..  First Passenger Trains Over Kettle  Valley' Line Reach Penticton Monday  The first passenger trains over  the Kettle Valley Railway arrived  in Penticton last Monday, the train  - from  the  west at shortly  after 4  '.o'clock in the afternoon and from  the east at 10.30 the same evening.  - The Kettle Valley Railway Company,-a subsidiary company _of the  C. P. R., started work on this road  in 1910, when Chief- Engineer Andrew McCulloch put a number of  assistants at work on locating the  route.   Owing to the urgent desire  ' for   railway" construction    which  " was manifested by  thc people of  : the-  Kootenay,     Boundary     and  Southern   Okanagan   districts,   fol-  - lowing  upon .the  decision.of the  , Provincial  Government  to  aid   in  - the construction of the line, it was  deemed advisable to carry grading  close on the heels of the locating  * surveyors. This was done in the  vicinity   of   Midway   and   Merrit,  - where the country is comparatively flat.    Surveys oh other parts ..of  the line were carried.on for two  - years. Considerable difficulty was  experienced in getting the final lo-  V cation lines'as the Kettle Valley.  -: railway, instead of running with  mountain chains, runs "against them  7 ? the line ."crossing ^three - rangesUtKe  .;-Kettle -Vallcy*Okanagan,/the ,0ka:;  ���������������������������' nagan-Similkameen -and^the -Hope  - range; - Many, serious .difficulties  /in railway ^construction had-to "be  7 overcome. and *much',heavy .bridge.  . work- was necessary;., It- is -said''by.  ' "railway nienVthat. Cheif/Engineer  -McCulloch put^his. best.work on  this road,'with'the''result that the  Kettle Valley line. is. one of Jhe  most substantially built/ in ythe  great C. P. ~R. system, and orie~ of  the scenic lines surpassed by none.  It  is   275   miles  long.     Coming  . into the.Okanagan from, the east,  it crosses the, divide between-the  Okanagan and Kettle Valley, southeast* of Kelowna, then skirts the  Okanagan'Lake side of the mountains past- Naramata and on into  Penticton.- The grade is rather  heavy between Naramata and Penticton, but the roadbed is good,  with little chance of it giving any  serious trouble to - traffic at any  time. From Penticton,, the road  runs east and skirts the hillside  looking down upon Okanagan lake  until it is lost in the hills back  of  Summerland,  where   it   leaves  -=the=Okanagan-throiigh=-Garnet==Val=  lev. The Hope mountain section  of the line is still unfinished, hence  the real big advantage that this line  will be to the Okanagan coastward  has not yet been felt, and will not  for some time.  Banquet in Evening  In view of the great importance  thc completion ^of the line is to  Penticton .in . particular and lhc  Okanagan as a whole, the Board  of Trade of Penticton and President Warren and co-workers of the  road, tendered a banquet to 150  guests in the spacious dining room  of the Incola hotel, following thc  arrival of the night train from the  cast. This affair, Tike all such occasions that the people of Penticton become interested in, proved a  delight and pleasure to all.  The interchange of ideas, the  healthful prodding around the banquet board, helped to bring to the  surface the needs of the district in  its efforts to more fully take advantage of the unquestioned opportunities that are Okanagan's.  Reeve R. S. Conklin was in the  toastmaster's chair, and he presided in a manner most thoughtful,  courteous and liberal. In his welcome to the assembled guests the  toastmaster said this was the third  occassion on which he had witnessed the first trains iri over railway lines in Canada���������������������������at his boyhood home town in Ontario, at  Winnipeg, and now in British Columbia. He pointed out the great  advantage this new road would be  to the southern valley points, in  the matter of freight and passenger  rates and shortening up of the time  from the Okanagan to the coast.  Letters of regret were read from  a few of the more prominent of  the invited "guests who could not  be present on this auspicious occasion. From Vice-President Bury  came words of congratulation to  President Warren on the completion of line into the Okanagan, and  to the people of Penticton and the  Valley on having another railway  line giving-them connection With  the coast. Mr. Bury" took occasion  to drop a characteristic word of  advice. '** He said excessive real  eslale operations and exclusive  fruit raising had held back the district,'and declared mixed farming  and good sense would put the district in the position it should hold  by right of its ideal' climatic and  geographical position.  S Hon. Martin Burrell, Mr. Grant  Hall, of the C. P. R., Mr. J. J. Kennedy, of the V. V. & E.j Hon..W. J.  Bowser, Mr. L. W. Shatford, M. L.  A., Capt. Gore, D. M. Eberts, A. H.  B. McGowan, and Mr. Price.Ellison  were- among the' names of those  whose letters of .regret'were read.*  VMr. A. GyFlumerfelt/of Victoria,  responded eloquently .to the toast  "Soldiers of the Empire," referring  to the gallant .work now being done  on. Behalf, of ."the " Empire in.'the  Europen'battle, ffont.-V^'No";rhuman,  speech7can ./give '.adequate/'expression to the, magnitude* and grandeur  .bf-^Britainv^nd ^Britain's ��������������������������� cause,,,  cemenfedVonce/ arid/ for~alPby~.the  blood of; bur noble-men.". '7 7 '-_���������������������������_  r  f :-Miv--E. Foley-Beniiett" proposed  they-toast, to-the Kettle .Valley. Railway,',''giving ;a brief, resume of the  preliminary-1 negotiations between  President" Warren arid the ~ Municipality ofV Penticton, and congratulating the, city" and the President of the .railway, company -and  his. c'o-workers .on"the successful  issue of the" events _of-the past five  years. Hefcltsure the-good feeling now existing between the railway officials and the citizens of  Penticton would continue to exist,  and bespoke for-all a rich reward  for the good work thus far carried  out.    -  , Responding to the toast, President Warren reviewed .the various  events leading up lo thc building  of the road,.but denied that the  credit of it all should -be heaped  upon him. He confessed to feeling  pride in the opening of the new  line: it was no small undertaking,  the^construction^of���������������������������this=275-miles"  of mountain railroad. It was not  his idea, the building of this line,  but the project was born in the  master mind , of Sir Thomas  Shaughnessy. He was asked by Sir  Thomas to carry out the idea. This  he-had been able to do by the able  assistance rendered- by Chief. Engineer McCulloch and other coworkers. To Engineer McCulloch  more than to him is due the credit  of the "road's construction, its good  roadbed, grade and scenic beauty.  To Sir Richard McBride Mr. Warren paid high tribute, for his absolute busines fairness in dealing  with the railroad company in connection with the Government assistance granted in connection  with the building of the road.  "Some of my friends have said  it must be a great relief to me  now that the work is completed,"  said Mr. Warren, "but I want to. say  it would be idle for me to think  there is or will be nothing more to  do. The real- work to make this  road pay the ���������������������������investors is just beginning. We are going to do the  best we can for you, and want, you  to give us a' chance to meet you  amicably on any proposition you  have to bring before us or to complain about before run ning to the  Board of-Railway Commissioners."  "As soon as you get out'of the  idea that you can grow fruit and  then "'buy everything else you need  at four times what it would cost  you to produce it, we may expect  to see the Okanagan Valley the  most prosperous part of Canada."  Mr. 0. E. Fisher, traffic manager  of the Kettle Valley, followed Mr.  Warren, replying to the toast. He  referred to the great need of the  new line for a heavier amount of  traffic, and promised the best ser  vice' it is possible to give. The  company would endeavor to make  its policy clear to the people, and  in fairness he asked that the general public would try the experiment of working with the railroads instead of. against Ihem.    ,  Hon. Thomas Taylor, Mr. W. R."  McLean, M.L.A.; of Nelson, and Mr.  John R. Jackson, M. L. A.,.replied  to the' toast. "Provincial Govern-  | ment," Mr. Taylor referring to the  trip he had taken over the new  road, said that with the exception  of a few miles in thc vicinity -of  Princeton, it was like travelling  over a long-built road. He said the  President, Mr. Warren, - and his  staff, were to. he-congratulated on  the good work done in the building  of the line. He"gave credit to Mr.  Shatford, M. L. A., and to Mr. Ellison, M. L. A., for ;the strong representations they had made to the  Government on behalf of the district when thc question of guaranteeing the bonds of the road was  before the Government.  Mr.  Duncan   Ross ** responded  to  the toast "Pioneers," speaking eloquently of tlfe; development of the  district witnesscd;by him since his  first trip through jt some 20 years  ago.     "No . .matter    whether .you  build railroads by".a direct subsidy  from" the. government orynot," the  people "have, to pay" for it, ih'the vend  just ,the7.same,"Vand .he .congratulated the people;of > the interior- on  having-such a splendid connecting  line ������������������from.. the -Okanagan'-- to /the  coast/ as ,,thei-Kettle,/=Valley y.road.  The people of. the coast/cities now.  fully 'realise,.,he  said,-;, that   there  can   be" no "permanent' .prosperity;  for them-in their-buying of.real  estate from each other.   The farming  industry   must   be   developed,  and he could see in the completion  of the Kettle Valley line,transportation  facilities provided'-"which are  certain to open up greater"territory  and bring the producer and consumer closer together.*"-'--._'  *-  '  Mr. D. C. Coleman, assistant general manager of C. P. R. western  lines, .of Winnipeg, replied, to the  toast  "Canadian  Pacific Railway."  He enjoyed the honor of-representing this" great corporation on this  occasion,    and~ congratulated   the  President, Mr.-Warren, and his assistants.   "The present situation in  Canada' and  the   United   States  is  rather   obscure, . and   we. do   not  realize what is in store for us." Mr.  Coleman referred to the building of  the Kettle Valley line, as one of the  big achjevementsjn railway circles  in~Cana(la, and said the name of"  Mr.  Warren   would    stand   beside  those of other great Canadian railroad   builders,    Lord   Strathcona,  Sir William Van Horn, etc.   Of all  lines built in Canada none has been  built with so little fuss and noise.  The C. P. R. is proud to take over  thc offspring, and honor the name  of its builder.     Mr. Coleman said  that in spite of the business conditions being depressed there.is ample   reason    lo    believe    thai   this  fall and winter will  witness very  great    improvement.      Crops    are  heavy, prices arc higher, and property values hold steady.  Mr. Justice' Gallihcr, Victoria;  Mr. W. T. Beck, president Spokane  & B. C.

In the matter of  railway-'crossing, notice was received from the Railway Commission stating that the hearing of the  city's protest had been postponed  from June 1st to June 8th,,and .that  it would be heard at Kamloops in-  .stead of-at the coast. The Mayor  was empowered-to carry the case  to Kamloops and to obtain such  legal assistance as is necessary to  present the city's case. ' -  ��������������������������� A deputation from the Board of  School -Trustees, .consisting.* of  Messrs. C :Hawkins and T. Robin--  son, waited upon the Council in  order to ascertain what they (the  Council) intended to do in-regard  to the financing of the Board.. They  pointed out that the teachers' salaries and other accounts were" now"  four months in-arrear and-stated  that the Board felt that it would  be-impossible for them to-go-.'on  was a definite prospect of funds-to  meet them being .forthcoming. .'. --  The.

In these cir;  cumstances the only.course open to  the Council.was to place thewholc  matter before, the Provincial Gov?  eminent, -.arid this - the -Council. at  the last,meeting had decided to do.'  At the request of His .Worship the  Mayor the clerk read, for the- information of the school board a  cop'y of the letter which had been  addressed to the Government:      -"  "Sir: I am instructed by the  Municipal Council of this city to  submit for the consideration of His  Honor the Lieutenant-Governor in  Council the following statement regarding the financial situation of  Enderby.

Poison, mayor of Enderby, and Mr.  H. M. Walker, president Enderby  Board of Trade responded to "Our  Guests."  The speeches in reply to the  toast "Our Guests" particularly  emphasized thc thought that while  there should be no reason for anything but optimism in view of  present conditions, still, now above  ajl other time there must be a  "getting together" of the producer  and consumer; more loyalty to  home industry and a fuller utilization of Provincial, Dominion and  Imperial products.

V'-V  This year, however, for the first  lime in the history of the town, the  bank has refused to make the customary advances, the reason-given  being that the balance of last  year's loan, above referred to, is  still unpaid. As the-inevitable .-result of the bank's decision not to  finance the city, thc corporation  has been unable to pay debenture  interest, school salaries, etc, which  are now very much in arrear.  The corporation has up to the  present time, with very great difficulty, dissuaded some of the bond  holders from taking legal action,  but it does not appear possible to  induce them to wait any longer;  and the first action entered will  doubtless be the means of precipi-  year's taxes, so  poration   some  which   to   meet  mands   of   the  other creditors.  It does not appear  interest of the public  should be forced into the hands of  thc sheriff, and advertised to the  world as defaulting in regard to  its financial obligations; and my  council trust lhat.the .Government  will see their way, for the sake not  only of thc City of Enderby, but of  the Province of British Columbia,  of which it forms a part, to accede  to this application."

These notices have already been  given.  Thc board decided also that a  tax sale would be held to recover  delinquent school taxes on all  property in the extra-municipal  school "district.

JUNE 3, 1915  IMMIGRATION AFTER THE WAR  Taking a purely superficial view, it may well  ���������������������������seem that after the war is ended in Europe immigration  to this country, where new blood is  needed so badly���������������������������providing it is good blood���������������������������  would be less than before the war. With so many  million men under arms, with so many thousands of.them killed or wounded, one would suppose that all lhc survivors would be needed al  home.    But lhe men in lhc ranks arc only one  of lhc elements to lake into consideration in this  connection.    Every country engaged in thc war  is impoverishing ilsclf, and the business men of  every such counlry will be a I their wils' end to  obtain money to re-establish their ruined or suspended indusfries.   Bill there is a deeper reason  lhan lhis for expecting an immense emigration  from these countries after thc war is ended.   If a  referendum vole could be taken in the countries  engaged in  lhe war, wilh universal suffrage in  opera lion, and particularly if thc women were allowed    to    express    themselves,    the    majority  against war would be stupendous, gigantic and  overwhelming.    That on lhc close of hostilities  many people in  these war-lorn ."countries, sick  and tired of fighting, heartbroken with grief, will  waul to gel away lo more peaceable countries, is  certain. ������������������ll needs no argument.   Where is there  a country more attractive than Canada for these  suffering thousands to lly lo?   Where is lhere a  countryso rich in possibilities, with ils immense  "iiaturaH'csources-yet-onl^scratGbecU?-  grevious for his chief.

It  is highly necessary that* you should give him your  closest attention, and act promptly as your good  judgment .chelates. ��������������������������� Yours,   A. Lincoln.  The note, of course, got thc stranger into Stanton's presence. Stanton read the letter and sent  for three secret-service men. The doors were  locked, thc keyholes stuffed, and the man with  lhc hairlip was requested to divulge the plot. It  took Stanton about fifteen minutes to discover  what Lincoln had gathered in a moment. Stanton  Ihen wrote the following letter:  Dear Mr. President: I have given your clear, close,  pcjrsonal friend fifteen minutes of my valuable time.  Ancl if you ever send me another man like this, ancl  he does not blow up Ihe Capitol, I will. Sincerely  yours, Edwin M. Stanton.

MANURES AND FERTILIZERS  Canada today is barely started on ils upward  climb. Jl is dillicult to realise the immense potentialities of the Dominion, and whal il. must become as population increases and its resources  are more fully developed. Canada's total area  is 3,7-15,57-1 square miles, more than 2.000 square  '..miles larger than llie United States, wilh all ils  island possessions. Canada's ^population is not  :moi:c^llian/7)00il0^^ In the Kee-  walin, Yukon, Mackenzie, Ungava and Franklin  Districts, wilh a combined area of more than  2,100,000 square miles, lhere is a tolal population  of '1(5,000. The nalural resources and wealth of  these districts is as yet unknown. But think of  whal the future holds for us when these immense  areas, either one of them larger in square miles  lhan most of llie European nations now at war,  are even partly developed. Leaving these districts (Hit entirely, and taking only the provinces  of the Dominion, wc have an area of 1,01-1,88-1  square miles, with a population in these provinces nol more than three limes that of Servia  wilh its 18,000 square miles.  13v the time peace is established il is estimated  thaf lhere will be 2,500,000 widows al least left  by the slaughter in lhe war. There i.s already an  excess of females to males of thc human race in  lhe countries al war, and the war will raise this  excess very much. Think what lhis will mean  in those countries. And what il will mean to  Canada when the reconstruction days arrive.  MISCHIEF MAKING  Mere is a good story told of Abraham Lincoln,  vouched for as authentic, which should be borne  in mind at the present lime in Ibis part of Canada  by those self-imposed "secret service" people  who are ever discovering plots in Iheir neighbor  against the country:   In one of tbe darkest hours  Thc division of Chemistry of the Dominion  Department of Agriculture has issued another  useful scries of circulars by Dr- Frank T. Shulj.  dominion chemist. ���������������������������* This one, Circular. No. 8,  deals with "Manures and- Fertilizers"_and, like  all the work of Doctor Shu It, is at once explicit  and practical/The first section is devoted to a description of experiences at tho Central and other  Experimental Farms, and thc second is devoted  to a summary and to advice that, if followed,  cannot help but benefit thc farm and profit the  follower. Here arc a few sentences given in sententious form that illustrate thc conclusions  arrived at and thc counsel given by Dr. Shult:  Rational farming is "mixed*" farming.  Barnyard manure is the most eifective of all  fertilizers.  The liquid portion, of the manure is the most  valuable.  Use sufficient litter in lhc slables to absorb the  liquid.  The amount of manure on a farm being insufficient,  frequent light dressings are advisable instead of larger  ones at longer intervals.  Thc manure is most advantageously applied for  the root or corn crop in lhc rotation.  It is not wise to "bury" lhe manure; a shallow  ploughing under is more advisable.

West, clean of  the graduate school of Princeton  University, has' written a letter  setting forth many reasons why  Princeton declined to invite Billy  Sunday, the baseball player turned  evangelist, to speak under university auspices or in a university  building. Some of these reasons  were, according to Dean West, that  Sunday is coarse, vulgar, blasphemous, irreverent, abusive, disgusting and slanderous; that his  teachings are travesties on the  teachings of Christ.  The dean made a careful study  of the authorized transcripts of the  sermons delivered ��������������������������� by Mr. Sunday  in the" course of his nine weeks'  campaign in Philadelphia, and it is  with extracts from these lively sermons, that Dean West illustrates  his characterization of Mr. Sunday.  ������������������������������������������������������' "Take. . the following example,  less vulgar than many others,"  Dean West writes: " 'Mary was one  of these sort of Uneeda Biscuit  peanut butter gelatin ancl pimento  sort of women.' It was Christ who  said to Mary on that occasion, that  'One thing is needful; and Mary  hath chosen that good part, which  shall not be taken away from her.'  "Mr. Sunday knows better and  has taken it away.- Would not the  vulgarity have been enough without falsifying the teaching of  Christ?"  Commenting on .Mr. Sunday's  warning to drinking men, that 'the  Holy Spirit does not want to take  a, bath in beer and swim around  in a pool of booze,' Dean West  s,ays,: "I pass over the description  of the Holy Spirit as *It.'; But what  about the gross coarseness of parts  of,this passage? Is.such low flashy  language or anything like it ever  found in the mouth of Christ or  His.apostles?"  ,. y  Billy Sunday's advice to women  who use> cosmetics that they spend  less on, 'dope pazaza and cold  cream, andr. get '"'down -- on their,  knees;'' coupled . wtih *' the. proriiise  that God would make, them prettier  if they prayed more,'. is termed  very, blasphemous. by. Dean West.  He quotes a story, told by Mr. Sunday." about, an Irishman throttling  a*, drowning. Jew, making the Jew  promise to turn Catholic, arid then  forcing the Jew's1 head under  water and. keeping-it there until  life was gone, so.as to keep the  Jew, a Catholic. "The horrible  .story of .an Irishman murdering a  Jew," writes Dean West. ("Do you  approve of this?"  The Dean quotes numerous specimens of -Sunday's "irreverent  familiarity" toward . God, and his  "swaggering impiety." He continues: "Many of Mr. Sunday's remarks are personally abusive or  disgusting or slanderous. Take  without comment the following:  " 'If a minister believes and  tcaches=c-volution,_he=is^a.=-stinking-  skunk, a hypocrite and a, liar.'  " 'If a woman on the avenue  plays a game of cards in her home  she is worse than any blackleg  gambler in the slums.'  "'They talk about the excitement of a revival meeting being  bad ..in any community. If you  say that, then you are a dirty,  rotten, stinking liar. Did you get  that?'  A fourth argument made by Dean  West as to why Mr. Sunday is impossible is that some of his statements are indecent. "Take lac  following instances and remember  they are from the words of a professed minister of thc gospel of  Christ," says Dean West. "See if  you approve of them:  " 'I can understand why young  bloods go in for dancing, but some  of you old ginks���������������������������good night.  " 'Ma. ancl I slopped to look at a  ball at an inauguration ceremony.  Well, I'll be honiswoggled if I did  not see a woman there dancing  with all the men, and she wore the  collar of her gown around her  waist. She had a little corset on���������������������������  oh, I can't describe it. You stand  there and watch man after man as  he claims her hand and puts his  name-on her list. You stand there  ancl watch your wife folded in his  long, voluptuous, sensual embrace,  their bodies swaying one against  the other, their limbs twining ancl  entwining, her head resting on his  breast, they breathe the same vitiated air beneath the glittering  candelabra and the spell of the  music, and you stand there and  tell riie there is no harm in it. You  are too low clown for me.'  Dean West then quotes Mr.  Sunday on another point of offen-  siveness. " 'Why, a man with red  blooch in his veins can't look at  half the women on the street now  ancl not <��������������������������� have impure thoughts.  " 'Little girl  you  look so small,  Don't you wear no clothes at all?  Don't you wear no chemise shirt?  Don't you wear no pettyskirt?  Don't you wear no underclothes  But your corset ancl your hose?'  "No decent person can read  these quotations without shame,"  Dean West declares.

It was the most convenient  means of escape from a dangerous I was  impossible  to  maintain  even  isolation. Italy was seeking friends  and had need" of them. The condition of her domestic affairs, the  divisions of her public opinion, the  instability of her leadership, and  the weakness of her military and  finance made most of Europe indifferent to her search for a stabilizing alliance.  Hostile action of France and the  question of the pope's temporal  power finally inclined'her to make  use of the willingness of Germany  and Austria-Hungary to sign a  treaty, and the triple alliance was  formed.  . So far as Italy, was concerned  the advantages of her alliance were  relative and temporary. The natural direction of Italian sympathies would have - been toward  France, but in the commercial rivalry for Tunisia France had offended -violently by a coup cle  main, and in the Italian* resentment  caused by\the French expedition  and: the-establishment of the pro/  tecforate it "was easier to reconcile  the hostility to Austria. ���������������������������. -, -;  ' The\ ^fear that'VBismarck, who  had need of the" aid,of the-Vatican  in -composing * questions1^ affpeting  the German Catholics, would raise  in international conference the issue of papal independence was  an even more propelling factor  in driving the Italians to refuge in  an alliance with Germany and  Austria, .where there might be security from  the issue.  That alliance is now denounced  and, although there will be an outcry against a nation guilty of what  her enemies will call th'e perfidy of  turning against her allies, it must  be recognized that in the code of  European principles, which is the  sum of the experiences of European nations, there is nothing  higher than national need ancl opportunity and no political immor-  ality=so-inexcusable-as-the-'neglcct-  of either.  That may be a hateful creed, but  it is thc one to which consistent  devotion has been given. The usefulness of the triple alliance to  Italy in these later years lay largely if not entirely in the ability of  the alliance to preserve peace by [  preserving the balance. When il I  failed to preserve peace Italy and  Austria would find that their purposes and needs were irreconcilable.  On several occasions Italy has endeavored to produce proof that  Austria was bent upon dominating  Serbia, ancl that till that was  sought was an occasion. Former  Premier Giolilti, who now is an  opponent of war, and has fled from  Rome, several months ago made  public correspondence with thc  Italian ambassador to Vienna to indicate that Austria had intended  to force matters with Serbia in  1913. The Italian green book just  issued relates that Austria's demand in exchange for making any  territorial concessions to Italy was  a free hand in the Balkans.  The Italians would persuade the  world that Austrian aggression  against Balkan states and her determination to control the Adriatic  and cut a way through the /Egean  was destined to bring a general  war sooner or later, ancl that the  ���������������������������war when it came would be disastrous  to  Italian interests  even  if  a position of benevolent neutrality  ancl await'an outcome which, with';  out suitable guaranties and concesr*  sions from Austria, would 'nicah'-  the limiting of Italian growth.

In spile of the most desperate  fighting in history, the deadlock  which has existed since the struggle began still continues in both  the eastern ancl western theatres.  In the eastern theatre Germany  has maintained a force of approximately 024,000 men for the past  six months. Austria is credited  with having 1,500,000 men in this  territory.  To oppose-thc Germany's 2,236,-  000 men in the wesl, England has  500,000, Gelgium 50,000 and France  1,700,000 trained troops. Russia  has 2,500,000 men in the east, ancl  700,000 more in her Turkish campaign.  France has lost more than l,o00,-  000 men to date. Russia is said to  hc the heaviest loser wilh 2,500,000  killed, wounded and captured.  The Teuton figures are unobtainable, bul Russia sets forth the  claim that it has more than 650,-  000 prisoners in concentration  camps. The Teuton prisoners in  England and France are declared  to run over one million men. A  report from London gives these  figures, but no estimate is given of  the British losses.  The entry of llaly into the war  on May 23, marked the beginning  of a new era in the fighting. A  southwestern theatre was thereby  created. The Italian army consisting of more than 500,000 trained  troops ancl backed by more than  double that number of volunteers,  are said lo be well inlo Austro-  Hungary.  Little official news has been allowed to get out as to operations in  thc western front. The French  claim to have made important advances in the vicinity of Arras.  It is reported lhat ihe Allied  troops in the Dardanelles are daily  meeting strong opposition from the  Turk land forces, but "almost  daily these engagements have come  to an end in favor of the Allies."  In thc eastern front, German reports indicate a slow hut' continuous advance against the Russians,  but Russian reports say Ihey have  lhe field well in hand. There is  clanger that the movement on the  part of the enemy may envelope  Przemysl.

AIR RAID ON LONDON  London, June .1.���������������������������Ninety bombs  were dropped in an air "raid on  London last night by Zeppelin airships. Four persons were killed  and a few were injured. No public  buildings were damaged. This information was given out officially  toclav.
