The crown  prince is quoted as saying this  was clear to him the moment  Britain  entered  thc war.  Regai'ding   the  Americans  in  France,  the crown prince said:  "I've found lhat the majority do  not know what  they are fighting for, but we 'feci, of course,  lhc effect of the entry of Americans. They have sent over much  material, ancl are now sending  much    human   'material.      We  speak  openly  of  victory.

Thc   moment   England   entered  the war  lhat was clear to  mc,  and I always emphasized it."     K'  Reverting  lo  the question  of  what nalion wanted lhc war, hc  declared that "it was clear England   would   take  advantage  of  the opportunity.

The list of dealers to whom sugar certificates'  havc bcen issued by the-Canada;  food board comprises the fol- '  lowing: Candy manufacturers, I  bakers, confection manufacturing druggists, soft drink manufacturers, public eating piaccs,  canners, ice cream manufacturers, abattiors, tobacco manufacturers, syrup manufacturers,.  1 manufacturers of jelly powders j  and allied products. Retail grocers, Mr. Kingham pointed out,  do not require certificates to buy  sugar for their retail stores, nor  do wholesale grocers need certificates to purchase sugar for  their wholesale business.  For thc benefit of licensees  who havc made application for  certificates but havc not yet received them, Mr. Kingham announces that in thc ease of licensees who made their application prior to August 24th, thc  Provincial committee is authorized to issue permits to such licensees to purchase sugar up to  September 15th on thc basis of  60 pen cent of their average  monthly consumption for 1917.
