C, FRIDAY, APRIL 2, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAI  LIBERAL CONVE  HON POSTPO  ~The Liberal  nominating converi-'.  tion, called   for    last    Wednesday  evening, was postponed until some  future'date owing to the badconditfon  of, the roads between this city and  Phoenix.    Nearly all of the Phoenix  - delegates are miners.   To make the  -.trip to) this city "by rail  they would  necessarily have been compelled to  lose  two   shifts,  which they could  not well afford to do. -They  there-  " fore   expressed  a desire^ for a post-  ���������ponement   until   the "roads get in  shape so they can make the trip in  autos.   TheGrand  Forks delegation  acquiesced to  this    request,   more  readily, perhaps, owing to  the  fact  that the date of the election has not  yet been set.  The evening was devoted to the  transaction of routine business and  to listening to short speeches from  the members. The proceedings were  entirely harmonious, and the best of  feeling prevailed. Any street reports to the contrary are malicious  Tory lies..        -    . .'

There were no  other candidates   in-the field.    Mr.  Miller spent a few days in the city  previous to the convention, and sue  ceeded in eliminating all  aspirants.  The machine worked  without   slipping a cog.    Mr. Miller felt so  cer  tain that it would do'so that he  left  the city  for the coast the day previous   to tbe convening of the con  vention.  IEWS OF IHE CITY  An entertainment vill"l( pivfn a  the Empress theatre next Friday  evening by local talent, and the pro-'  ceeds of the performance turned  over to the Daughters .J the Empire. -The program will consist of  comedy sketches and a one-act  comedy. "A 'good entertainment is  promised.  It is asserted that the seed grain  which the department of agriculture  is philanthropically distributing to  the ranchers 'in-"this valley can be  purchased at the local feed stores at  25c per 100 lees than is charged by  the province. Probably the farmers  prefer to patronize tbe department  because cash must accompany every  order.

This . war tax is to be prepaid by tbe senders by means of a  war stamp,' for sale by the postmasters and other postage stamp  vendors..  . Wherever possible, stamps, ou  which -the words. V������&r Tax" have  been priuted should be used for prepayment of war tax, but should ordinary postage stamps^be used, for  this purpose they will  be accepted.  This war stamp or additional  stamp for war purposes should be  affixed to the upper right hand portion of the address side of the envelope or post card, close to the regular postage, so that it may be readily cancelled at the same as the postage.  In the event of the failure on tbe  part of the sender, through oversight or negligence, to prepay tbe  war tax on-each letter.or post card  above specified, " such ��������� a letter or  post card will be sent immediately  to the nearest branch dead letter  office.  It is essential that postage on all  classes of mail matter should be pre  paid by means of ordinary . postage  stamps. The war tax stamp will  not beaccepted in ��������� any case for the  prepayment of postage.  mi recruit:  Lieut. D. A. McQuarrie, of the  Sharpshooters, went to Nelson on  Wednesday 10 recruit twenty men  there for the purpose of strengthening the company. He was successful in securing the required number  and returned to this city today witb  the men. It is thought these men,  with the rest of the company, will  be included with the Boundary-  Kootenay regiment which it is expected will be recruited in the various parts of the district at an early  date. In the meantime it is pointed  out that no one should go to any of  the recruiting points for the purpose  of enlisting until definite informa-  ti m is received.  First Shoot of Season  The Kettle Valley Rifle .association held its first practice shoot last  Saturday afternoon. In view of tbe  fact that a high wind was blowing,  the following scores are considered  very good:  Looking for a Railway Loan  Sir Richard McBride, after a brief  conference in Ottawa with Sir Rob  ert Borden, left the capital for Montreal   and   Nsw  York  incompany  Railway Contractor Stewart.  It is understood lhat Sir Richard  could get little satisfaction from Pre  mier Borden as to federal help in  getting him out of his financial and  railway troubles in British Columbia.  He has gone to New York to see  what arrangements can be made,  there for a loan for railway projects.  On his his return to Ottawa the  political troubles in British Columbia will be taken up more fully  with Premier Borden, Hon. Robert  Rogers and Hon. Martin Burrell.  The proposition has been made to  let MoBrid������ succeed Hon. W. J.  Roche in the cabinet, the latter, becoming a third civil service commissioner and Mr. Burrell going to  the senate, with Mr. Bennett coming into the cabinet to take his place  "Mickey" McKay,the well known  hockey player, arrived in the city  this week from Vancouver to visit  friends.  Philip Wilkinson, of Christina  Lake, died at the Cottage hospital  last'Saturday, after a short illness.  The funeral was held from Cooper's  undertaking parlors on Monday,  interment being made in Evergreen cemetery.

The question is frequently   asked  why tbe government is appealing tc  the  country   a year   before   it  wa*  necesrfary      It   is  doubtful   if   Sir  Richard McBride could  answer the  question satisfactorily even to   himself.    He   has   gone to Ottawa and  may be able to offer an   excuse   on  his return.   There are no important  issues that would warrant an.appeal  to the  electors.    The   people   will  hardly stand  for further   subsidies  or   guarantees   to   railway corporations.   There'are'two  vacant portfolios, and   another   to   be created,  that should be filled before a general election.    It is understood that at  least fifteen supporters ol   the   g >v  ernment in the house were   opposed  to an   apppal   to the electors at the  present time. These men must have  believed that the excuse for the  appeal would be accepted  as   a   valid  one by the people.���������Slocan   Record.

Heroism in  rn  Feats    Recorded    by Historians Contain no Acts of Daring That Outshines Achievements of  Fighters Today  History does not tell  of any more  courageous heroes than those    to be  found on tlie battlefields of the warring nations in Europe today, according to an article printed in a recent  issue of the Figaro.  "Here we have incidents of daring,  ' both  of officers and  soldiers, for in  these lists all ranks are put together,"  the Figaro says. "These are extracts  from the reports, magnificent military  literature  which  surpasses  the  writings of Aeschylus,  Plutarch  and  the  Lives of   the    Saints.    I    have   said  Aeschylus.

The report of the  officer also has been put into the  hands of Ambassador Page by the  foreign office in London.  The   officer's   statement    declares  that from  at La Bassee  until he re  mitted to "continual abuse and revile  ment," that his greatcoat was taken  from him, and that he, like those who  made the trip with him, arrived at  their destination after being "starved  and confined for three days 'and  nights."

" 'Flamand,    captain    of    the 2<)Slh  were submitted to these conditions for  thirty hours without,food.  According to the major, the British  prisoners were treated much less con-  sideVately tnan the French, and in  one case he states that the British  were given only the scant remnants of  regiment of infantry,  showed    great i food left after the French had finish-  bravery and rare qualities as a leader ' ed.    Many prisoners wore spat upoir  in tlie fighting of September G and 7.  At the point of bayonets on the 7th  with his company he took a trench of  the enemy, making twenty-six prisoners- and himself captured a German  flag. Wishing to take the second  line, in which the enemy had taken  shelter, he charged at the head of his  men, crying: "One more effort, boys,  and we'll take them." Mortally wounded, he gave orders .to the'soldiers who  would have tended him to- let him"  ��������� alone and keep up the advance. He  died a few minutes later where lie had  been laid! stretching but his hand after his men. as if lo urge them on.'  "That could well cause one to weep.  Hero is another:  " 'Blandin, a captain of the 104th infantry, at. ihe head of his regiment,  seriously wounded in the attack which  ho was making with his -100 men, refused to be carried to the rear, saying  to his lieutenant: "The firing of this  company is very important. Take the  command and lead them on.' "  "I spoke of the Lives of the Saints.  Read of this incident:  . " 'Faivro, an officer in the Eleventh  regiment of dragoons, during an at-  . tack on foot on a village, October 10,  \vas sent to take a message from the  colonel to a more exposed position at  the front. Having completed his mission in safety he, took his place in the  ��������� rear of a lino of marching scouts,  completely worn out by the work.  Then, in the course of a difficult retreat, seeing two of his companions  fatigued, he gave to one of them his  own cloak.'  "Saint Martin did not give more  than half of his. One woman, speaking  of these reports, said: 'They are all  heroes.' But why not do something to  perpetuate the name and' fame of  these brave men? And here is a plan  suggested by an enthusiastic man who  has read the lists of bravery: Why not  in each of the villages and towns,  where the men were born give to  tome street the name of one of these  men who served his country so well?  The families of those who are dead  will gain perpetual consolation in  .-iheir grief. Children -will read the in:  scriptions and older citizens will teir  them of the undying homage which  the fatherland pays."  by a German officer.  According to the report, one prisoner, an Irisnman, told a story of having  been called to a gathering of his compatriots and told by the commandant  that ihe emperor knew of the downtrodden condition of Ireland, and that  the Irish were, therefore, to be transported to a better camp and given better treatment and food than the ling-'  lish received. The soldier said the  Irish soldiers refused to accept U-is  offer, and remained with the English.  In concluding his statement the  major characterized German transportation conditions as "brutal in the  extreme, and adds that "evidence  collected at Crefeld by -officers there  shows that officers and men have been  killed after capture."  Older than the Grand Trunk  Canadian Express Co. is About to  Celebrate Its Fiftieth Anniversary  Within a few days, the Canadian  Express Company as such, will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, letters  patent having been granted to the forwarding company under this name by  the federal government early in Feb-  . ruary, 1865. The original name of the  company was the British American  Express, established in the early '50's,  when it operated stage lines during  the winter months, supplementing  these with steamboat connections during the months when water navigation  ivas possible.  The Canadian Express is therefore  iX'tually older than the Grand Trunk  System, on which it operates today,  although the Grand Trunk was the  second railway opened on this contin  Surgery is Aided by Phone  Discovery    That    Simplifies Work  of  Doctors in the  War -Zone  "The use of the telephone as an aid  to surgery "by communicating to the  operator the noise of .contact of knife,  forceps or probe with foreign bodies-  imbedded in the flesh has been discovered and perfected by Sir James Mackenzie Davidson, who says his method  will do much to simplify military surgery. N..  The X-ray, ' says Sir Jamss, has  serious limitations. It shows the  presence of'the foreign body, but gives  no idea of the depth this body has  penetrated or of its relation to the  parts among which it has lodged.  Surgeons often fail to find the object  seen in silhouette on the flourescent  screen.;.' -  .It is "not necessary to have a man  full of shrapnel brought: from the  trencjies .to' demonstrate the use of  the telephone in surgery, as a potaco^  and a nail do quite., as well. The s'ur-'  geon uses a double" pair of. receivers,  such as worn by wireless operators.  One of the telephone wires is attached to a piece of platinum foil. In a  real operation this foil is held jn place  on the patient's skin by plaster or  bandage. In the experiment the potato is dipped into salt w'ater and  placed on the foil. To the end of  the. other telephone wire is attached  a small sterilized silver wire, which in.,  turn ismade.fast to tlie .knife, probe,  needle or forceps used  the wound or incision.  When the surgeon's instrument  touches metal, whether in flesh or in  a potato, a distinct and unmistakable  grating noise results. This means the  foreign body is discovered.   .-  There exists a popular fallacy that  it is necessary to remove not only  bullets but every scrap of metal from  the wound. But experience has  shown that the human body does not  mind a little metal, and the removal  of bullets is often too dangerous to  attempt. ������������������,'���������'  Raising" Champion  Steer  Results    of." Scientific   Breeding   and  Proper Feeding  of  Prize Stock  A" triumph for scientific breeding  and feeding was shown by "Dainty,'-'  the champion steer al. Gifelph Winter  Fair. A son of ".Royal Archer," imported** Shorthorn bull, which heads  tho herd of John Bright, Cauada's live  stock -commissioner, at Myrtle, he is  therefore a nepnew of "Nonpareil  Archer," Hon. Peter White's famous  sire of winners. His mother was also  a pure bred Shorthorn.  "Dainty" was a winner a year ago  at the show at the Union Stock  Yards, Toronto, where he was shown  " eorge fl. Oke of Al-  ed there by .lames  a, he was "exhibited  at Toronto exhibition last year, and it  may- be recalled that he was second in  his class.  Here comes.in tho science of feeding io tho championship tlie magnificent frame which he had . inherited.  Carley Boverlen, trained for over six  years' with the Watts, has spent eight  years with veteran Pritchard,"aiul.  between them they know exactly how  to get the best out of Canadian feeds  and good cattle. v  The ration used with the champion  was that given to all eight of the fattening herd. Clover hay is the base  of tho roughage, with which a little  oat chaff is cut up, and, for the eight  steers, a pint of molasses and a  bushel and a half of turnips are added, the latter being pulped. Mangolds  are considered equally good. A gallon  three times daily is the quantity 'of  grain given to the champion of 1,400  pounds weight. This' consists of rolled- oats and a double handful of oil  cake, also an Ontaiio product. Some  molasses meal is also used���������made in  Britain for British feeders. 'Water is  kept before them at all times.  Lots of exercise outside, winter jind  summer���������six to eight hours daily���������  and loose boxes for quarters, with  green cut feed in summer, are regarded as essentials at the Pritchard  farm. Summer exercise is given at  night to avoid flies. An example of  the results of this system is seen in  tho fact that_Pritchard's white steer  gained 1G0 pounds in the 90 days between National Exhibtron anl Winter  Fair. ,;.  At the fifih annual Toronto Fat  Show held at~the Union Slock Yards,  John Brown and Son's (Gait) steer,  "Hector," who was champion grade  and reserve grand champion at  Guelph, won the ..supreme honor.  "Dainty," the Guelph winner, v.-as not  shown. "Hector" was bred by John  Love of Elora, sired by an Aberdeen  Angus bull, his mother a grade  Shorthorn- cow.���������Canadian Countryman.  Seed Improvement  Interest in Agriculture Could be'Stim-  '   uiated  Through   Help  of  Rural  Schools  Can the rural school help to promote  a more active, interest in.pure seed?  In answering this question be'fore the'  Canadian Seed Growers', association,  Professor S. B. ��������� McCready,' nature  study "department, department of education, Toronto, said, that tho possibilities in this diretcion are very  great. The Pupils'-Progress club idea,  which has had such a groat development in the United States, is taking  hold in Canada as well. Under this  scheme, a number of the older children organize into an Oat club, a Potato club, or an Alfalfa club. The  teacher does not need to be an expert.  She supplies enthusiasm and ��������� direction, letting the pupils, tc a very large  extent, teach themselves.  In one school they ha.ve two clubs,  a Domestic Science club for flic girls,  and a Potato club for tho boys. The  practical work is done at home.

Experience shows that three hundred  horses are killed on the average to  one cavalryman.,  ;  Tlie horse is always a worse sufferer than the man. It is not so hardy  and it suffers more acutely from starvation and thirst,'for instance. Generally speaking,   it is.easily vulnerable.

Having Ships ii Hose  England could lose ship for ship  with her enemy and enormously  lengthen the distance between them.  She could almost lose two for one  with her enemy and when, by that  process and rate of elimination, the  German navy should vanish, off the  waters, England would still -count  more and better ships of Avar than  any other sea power of the old world.  A lesson for us to learn out of this  war is that, having adequate sea power, whether for attack , or defense,  means having ships to lose as well as  to keep.���������Xew York Press.

Imagine, if you can, what would be  the result if every rural school'had a  little piece of ground on which to demonstrate hardy alfalfa, or some of the  O.A.C.

Near Chatham, "school  boys growing Wisconsin No. 7 corn  beat the wl.ole county in yield.  Jn the high school, too, the teaching  of agriculture may'be made lo fit with  the work- of the' association. The  scheme is similar to that followed :n  the public schools, that is, the instruction is based on the project that the  pupil carries on1 at home. Supposing  .fifteen of the older boys . in a liigh  school would like to take up crop improvement. They organize as a  branch of the association. There  would be...no compulsion. Some might  ���������want to grow, select and improve a  grain, clover, alfalfa or mangel seed; ;  others to test and introduce a new  variety. If so, that is the work they  would carry on at home as their project. It would not tuke many years,  by this means, to bring on a few  thousand of the best trained crop improvers. It is being done. Five high  schools have'commenced the work.  Last year at'Guelph there was a class  of twenty-one school teachers training for it. The chief thing is for tYe  people to understand the scheme and  to want it.  Farmers do not understand what is  meant by teaching agriculture. Thoy  think that it is teaching farming. ".  can teach my boy all the farming he  needs to-know; I don't see how tho  school teacher can teach him anything about farming." Such i_.cn have  the idea that farming is ploughinj,  harrowing, seeding and harvesting  That never was the idea involved in  the teaching of agriculture. Success  in /arming is dependent not upen  these manual . operations, important  and necessary as they r.ve. The thing  that makes for haj-piness and;success  is the ability to reason well,.to" observe  closely, to .-end about your work, to be  interested, in it, ui..: to want to improve it. The object is to lead children to think about farm, life, to be  proud of farm life, and Want to reid  about farm life and farming ���������operations.  We have apparently' come ; to a  place where all the out-of-doors was  left out of a child'.; education. The  idea of education had narrowed down  to a thing which you could get only  inside of four walls, with t.li3 teache;,  the blackboard and the book. Nature  study is a protest against the artificialities of school work. It is an effort  to naturalize school work; to bring  the school out of doors, realizing thai  t!;.c things the child corner in contact  with every day make a basis for'edu-  cation of the soundest kind. So we  have come to a scheme of teaching  agriculture through work with plants  and animals and soils and weather.  This is the natural and the sensible  way the way in which the race has,  as it were, been taught agriculture.

Controlled by Admiralty  Ascension  Island'Ranks as a   Man-o'-  War  Ascension Island, situated about  midway between Brazil and the Congo, is a valuable half-way house on  the Cape route, its position on the  main track making it especially useful  as a provisioning place for "ships on  their homeward way.  '. ..Physically, Ascension is a desolation of extinct volcanoes and lava  fields, but the prevailing fresh southeast trade winds make its climate  very healthy, and a sanitorium built  on Green Mountain, which dominates  the .'island, is a refuge for men invalided from the coast of West Africa.  Discovered on Ascension Day, 1501,  (thence its name), the island was  uninhabited until tlie British government occupied it as a military station  in 1815, during the confinement of  Napoleon in the island of St. Helena,  800 miles to the south.

By way of?emphasizing -whac had  been said, his lordship mentioned  what a German-had told him, "that  deep at the bottom of every German's  heart is the desire to take from England the -empire that you are not  strong enough to hold.

In- the fall of 1911, there were  slightly over 3,000 acres in the entire  state. j\.ii alfalfa census of the state  taken just 'before' the holidays by  counties showed (hat there were now  90,000 acres'in this crop in the state.  The rapidity with which the'acreage in tills state has increased is-due  largely to the'effrrts of tlie Better  Farming association which was organized three years ago'. As striking-  proof of this the increased alfalfa  acreage, is largely in the counties  which had representatives of the state  association.  From the number of inquiries concerning seed and .the proper method  of preparing the soil, the indications  arc tliere will be thousands of additional acres put in alfalfa in the coming spring.  Representatives of the better farming movement insist the people of  North Dakota are just beginning to appreciate the importance and value of  the crop and tney predict the acreage  will be increased rapidly each season.

Tattooing  Both English and German soldiers  have each a little metal identification  disk, so that whatever happens their  friends and kin may know at the last.  The sailor, whether in king's; ship or  merchant ship, has the same natural  craving that, if the worst happens his  folks may know. But the sailor's great,  enemy in peace or war is the sea, and  the sea makes little of identification  disks.

Today the disease may be in the  muscles of the back, thigh, shoulder or  neck���������tomorrow in the joints of the  hand, toss, arms or legs it may work  with redoubled fu..'.  Whether the pain is constant or occasional, makes no difference to ''Nerviline."  Because other remedies have failed,  don't be discouraged. Nerviline has  cured  tlie   worst of cases.

It allays almost uug-  ically the awful pain that only rheumatics -can describe.  Congestion is drawn out of the muscles, stiffened joints are eased and  limbered uji, the old time feeling of  depression is cast off, and once again  Nerviline brings tlie sufferer to buoyant,  vigorous  lasting good  health.

THE    SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,    E. C.  I'  V  ERSSANS HAVE PREPA  PREPARED TO MAKE A DETERMINED RESISTANCE  Have Employed Six Thousand Skilled Engineers and an Army of  Laborers to. Construct Defences, which will Enable them  to make Three Successive Stands  The correspondent of the London  Daily Telegraph, writing from the  Dutch frontier,' describes Germany's  triple line of defences in Belgium,  where Bhe will be able to make three  , successive stands against tho offensive  of the Allies. Tlie writer has inspected many works of defence, which the  authorities cannot hide. The work  carried on at ail fortified towns is  well known as to! its general points,  and  information   gathered    from  all  ��������� .sources and sifted with care, the writ-  - er saj's, points'to-tbe following plan  .   of campaign:  . "It is held, once a resolute offensive is offered by the Allies both on  land and sea, that the Germans will  Bpeedily be, obliged' tb evacuate West  Flanders. A study of the map of Belgium shows that the principal river  ��������� in the west is the Scheldt, a broad and  ��������� deep river, navigable    for   its entire  course through the country into  France. From the Dutch' frontier  through Antwerp up to Tamiz it is  ��������� navigable to largo sea going steamers,  and after that for large barges.'   Its  - course from the estuary.is, roughly,  .s^north to south, till the fortifications of  Antwerp^-are passed, then it bears  west to Ghent and from that city its  course goes again southward. Between  this-part of the river and the coast  and practically parallel with it flows  the Lys, a river of little importance  except in a wet season.  "From Gnent to the Dutch frontier,  almost due north, is the recently-  opened ship-canal. The first serious  defense is expected ,to take the line  of this canal from Sasvangent, on the  Dutch frontier, to Ghent, and to continue the course southward of the  .Sclielctt, via Audenarde Tournai,  . (Mount St.. Aubert, behind the town  command's the country for many miles  in all directions),- Conde and Valenciennes. Then, via the' reconstructed  and formidable fortress of Maubeuge  to Mezieres and along the line of the  upper Meuse to Metz.���������  "The second line will .probably be  as follows:  "Starting in tho west from   the re-  fortified and impregnable Antwerp  and along the Scheldt up to Boom, it  turns along the line of the ship canal  to Brussels. Then southward along  the line of the Gharleroi canal into  the headwaters of the" river Sambra,  and Charleroi and from there via the  Sambre to the fortress of Namur and  the middle Meuse. To those who know  the country these two lines of defense  appear impregnable, but the German  staff has something else up its sleeve.  "Still talcing Antwerp and the Rup:  pel as a. starting point after passing  Boom and following the river Dyle r.p  to the city of Malines, an already fortified position guards the river, which  runs between high banks, to the still'  more unhappy remains of Louvain,  and from there, still taking .advantage  of the river Dyle, via Wavre to Namur, there runs an extremely scientific line'of trenches, much of it in reinforced concrete.  "This forms a barrier not- easily  crossed. In front the ground is prepared with pitfalls, mined areas and  other traps for the unwary, though as  yet no wire entanglements have been  made except near Namur, where whote  woods have been sawed down with ihe  trunks left -ta'Hli'ng about twu feet  high. There regular entanglements  are prepared.  "The country along this line is undulating ������'-nd advantage has been  taken to prepare implacements for  heavy guns. Since August six thousand skilled engineers, as well as a  whole army of laborers have been  working on these defences. The forts  of Liege, Namur and Maubeuge were  completed in September and those of  Antwerp are also completely repaired.  "The third line, last mentioned, was  completed in .September and now. has  grown practically invisible. It is not  considered likely that a line farther  north"*will be prepared as tne ground  is very fiat and marshy, but immediately behind the third line, are very  good roaas and railways and it is iin  ideal terrain for a defensive campaign."  Plans of the  Allies' in France  Canadian Fisheries  Fisheries   of   the   Donii'nion   Are   the  Most Extensive in Whole  World  The' annual report of the department of marine and fisheries emphasises the fact that the fisheries of the  Dominion are the most extensive in  the world. It likewise noted that the  water in and around Canada contains  the principal commercial fool fishes  in greater abundance than the  waters of any other part of the world.  The total marketed value of all  kinds of fish, etc., taken by Canadian  fishermen from the sea and inland  lakes and rivers during the year end-  - ed March ,31, 1914, amounted to $33,-  207,748.  This value falls short of that for  the preceding year by $181,716. This  is accounted for by the Sockeye salmon run in Northern British Columbia  being smaller than usual, and the decrease in the value.of halibut.  Of this total value the sea fisheries  contributed $29,472,811; while the inland  fisheries  contributed  $3,734,937.  The value of the fish catch by provinces was as follows:  ��������� British Columbia, $13,893,9S0; Nova  Scotia, $8,297,626; New Brunswick,  $4,308,707; Ontario,'. $2,674,685; Quebec, $1,850,427; Prince Edward Island,  $1,280,447; Manitoba, $606,272; Saskatchewan, $148,602; Alberta, $81,913;  Yukon, $68,265.  Huge Air Fleet  Horses Needed by Britain  Many of Those Bought For Second  Contingent to be Shipped Now  The average life of army horses  when put on active service at the  front in Europe is only about ten days,  and consequently'the'demand for remounts from Canada is steadily increasing. The war office is asking for  increased supplies from Canada, aud  it is understood that a considerable  number of the horses purchased for  the second Canadian contingent are  to be shipped at once to England.  They will be replaced by further purchases from, the firmer.? of Canada,  under the direction.of the purchasing  committee appoi ited by the government.   .   ���������  Great  Britain   is   Surprisingly   Strong  . Strong   In   Matter   of  Aircraft  A letter to the Chicago Herald from  London, contains the information thr.t  England is far readier than the world  believes, in the matter of aircraft. In  spite of the secrecy thrown around  everything relating to war preparations, it is an open secret in military  circles that the British government  has in its possession a number of  Zeppelins and what are believed to be  far more effective a lot of huge aeroplanes capable of carrying a crew of  21 men, and arm 3d with a number of  powerful anti-aircraft guns.  Prior to the war, the British army  aeronautic service placed small confidence in the Zeppelins and decried  the possibility tnat they could work  much harm.  During the recent raid of C-uxhav-  eu, the.ease with which Zeppelins  were driven off by the British seaplanes was pointed to as evidence of  the non-value of the German crafts.  But the British authorities apparently determined to be as well equipped in every respect as their enemies,  acquiring dirigibles of th.3 German  type. The number of such dirigibles  flying the British flag is not.known,  mit it is said to be sufficient to make  aN decided impression when the  strategic moment for their use arrives.  More - fait.\ i3 placed by British  fliers in the enormous aeroplanes  which have been constructed. These  planes have been equipped with a  special anti-aircraft gun, designed to  take up the recoil when the gun is  fired; The- details of the armament  of the latest craft have been kept secret, but c-7 ough is known to justify  the statement that the vessels arc  the most formidable type in exis'-  ence.  Will   Endeavor to   Make  the  German  Retirement General One When It  Commences  Hilaire Belloc, writing in Land and  Water,, of the- battle before Soissons,  points out that there is a remarkable  similarity between '.what happened  there and at Steinbach in Alsace. The  colonel points out that a strong  French offensive was ordered with no  more than the troops who had been on  the spot against a particular'section of  the long German line; that it succeeded and after a delay of 48 hours  at Soissons and nearly of four days  at Seinbach a very large German reinforcement arrived and reversed the  French attack. The German counter  offensive, however, spent itself and  could go no further.  The lirst conclusion drawn from the  parallel is thus stated: , '  . "The Germans never knowing quite  where the French are going to attack  are in great peril at having their line  broken wherever an' attack on a considerable scale is delivered. They will  not risk men, as yet, at any rate, in  trying to recover' the initiative for  themselves and in being the first to  attack. They- are thus compelled to  wait for .the French initiative. They  meet it, wherever a strong attack is  delivered, by hurrinyg up men. from  elsewhere and the men so hurried up,  though coming in great numbers, lo  little more than hold their own."  A further conclusion is'that the  German's draw men from other parts  of their line and not from large available reserves of new formations.  Mr. Belloc contends that the facts d.s-  closed show that the enemy 'is put  to it by the "actual thinness of his  Hue. ���������   ������������������  lie continues: "The problem of the  allies in "the west is not the problem  of gradually pushing back an opposing force under pressure to shorten  lines which are already as stretched  as they can be, consistently with being held at all, and when the compulsion for shortening these lines shall  arrive it cannot take the form of  gradual retirements from one line of  trenches to another close behind it.  It can only take the form of whole-  !*ilo retirement, either evacuating  Northern France and half of Belgium  or evacuating Alsace."  Mr. Belloc also analyses the German report of the Soissons battle and  claims that the statement that more  than 5,000 Frenchmen were killed,  and more than 5,000 taken prisoners  is nonsense.  SERIOUS   SHORTAGE   OF   FOODSTUFFS   EXPECTED  Every Man in France is Determined upon Prosecuting  the  War  ; "to a Successful Outcome,  and will Fight to Remove  Conditions which Endanger Peace  Explosive Needles For Zeppelins  The French war office has now in  operation an invention which seems  to offer-an excellent method of combating Zeppelins. Tho inventor is M.  Antony . Jacques, of Grenoble. The  new weapon consists of a long needle  carrying a small shell. These needles  are very light, and so is the shell they  carry. When the needle pierces cloth  or any light substance���������and not till  then���������it explodes the shell. Fired  against a brick wall it is harmless.  The needles are so small that a good  quantity can be carried o~ an aeroplane. They can be fired from a very  light B������n- and when once they strike  a Zeppelin and explode, they will also  explode the gases contained in the envelope, and so destroy the whole machine. The invention came to the  French war office after careful and  exhaustive experiments made by the  chief-of tlie fire brigade at Grenoble.  To Fight to the Bitter End  German Huns Begin'to Talk of What  Will  Happen" if  Defeat Comes  Maxirriiiian .Vnrden, reviewing tha  war in his organ, Bit"Kulum[>. says:  "Beat us. Drive us into the sea,  into the Rhine. Starve us to submission. We shall die honorably, die  standing up with clean arms. We do  not know whether we shall win, but  we know we shall not end unworthily. We are conserving both our confidence and our nourishment for a very  long struggle, yet in a year .ve may bo  using thorns and thistles for a time,  instead of bread. We are quieter than  in the first current of the war's enthusiasm, but not more cowardly; nor  are we to be intimidated. In prayer we  are ever joyful, and still hark to the  German maxim, 'Rely upon thyself;  then wilt thou never deceive thyself.'"  Canada Getting Big* Orders  Contracts For at Least $50,000,000 in  War  Supplies  Received  Already  How Canadian industries are benefitted by the war is seen by the latest  government estimates, which indicate  that 3,000 factories are busy with orders which total at least $50,000,000.  The  prospects  are also  that  the. demands for war material will be greatly incerased in the future and there  are indications that France and Russia  will  purchase  more    heavily- in  Canada in-'the future.  The war supplies for which contracts have been let in the Dominion  cover a large range of articles. They  include rifles, ' bayonets, uniforms,  boots, saddles, truck wagons, ammunition, tents, blankets, and many other  materials necessary to equip an army.  Great orders of shrapnel shells have  also been received by a number of  leading Canadian firms, and one estimate indicates that already 100,000 a  day are being manufactured in the  Dominion with tho prospects for an  increased output in the future.  . The soldiers' pay is another big  item in the war expenditure, for which  tho Canadian government will have to  provide large sums. To defray this  expense and the others involved as a  result of the struggle it is expected  that the militia appropriations covering a "period of from April 1 to January 1, of next year, will require $100,-  000.C00. Should the conflict last two  years it is believed that the Dominion  will have expended the sum of $240,-  000,000 in assisting the empire in its  struggle.  Another item which is expected to  run into large figiues beiore the war  ends in the demand for horses. Experience has proved that the life of a  horse on the battlefield is short and  hence large orders are expected to be  filled in Canada. Beside:; horses,  numerous saddles will be required,  and already the French and Russian  governments have made heavy purchases here.  From an entirely reliable source  is secured the following summary jf  views taken by leading members of  the French government in regard to  the present conditions and future  prospects .of the war. Spring will un-  doubtelly witness new developments  of the most important character  among them the active interposition  of Italy and Roumania. ���������  "With these two nations throwing  the weight of their armies into the  balance oa the side of the all:ed powers," said' a cabinet minister, "1 expect that the war will end before next  winter."  From . confidential reports obtained  by the French government by means  of reliable agents, . it is believed in  Paris that the Germau professions of  the soundness of their financial and  economic conditioi-s are 'exaggerated.  The German industrial building Iooks  very well from tho outside. Its facade is made lo look very imposing,  but the building within is an empty  shell.  Authoritative forecasts of the economic outlook in Germany, chiefly derived from impartial Swiss experts,  arc gloomy. A serious shortage of  foodstuffs is expected before the winter is out.  With reference to the French pros-'  ccution of'the war a leading minister,  who, it must be remembered, was  speaking not for the gallery but confidentially and in accents of deep conviction, said:  "Every Frenchman, whatever his  politics, is determined upon war to a  successful'outcome. If we simply  drive the enemy out of France we  should have accomplished nothing.  We are not fighting for the reconques:  of Alsace anl Lorraine, or for~t'he defeat of Germany, but for the destruction of militarism. We do not want  the complete downfall of Germany.  We have no right to enforce any condition on a conquered Germany which  we do not impose on ourselves. French  and Britain must be predominant in  the settlement, if any permanent good  is to come out of this war. We both  value liberty. The British have a far  more deep-rooted conception of liberty-  than the French have. The French  have more equality, but liberty is his  toric with Britain.. The two countries must act with1 a common aim  and with the hope of establishing new,  conditions in Europe.  "I don't look for the breakup of the  German empire unless it comes from  internal revolution, but we shall havo  a right to remove the conditions which  endanger peace. For instance, Prussia should not be permitted in- future-  to exercise a preponderating influence  in the councils of. Germany because  as things are, Prussia is the menace.  The franchise in Prussia-should bo  mads the same-as in other parts of  Germany. Prussia should be rendered  impotent in a military sense, and it3  artificial majority' in the Bundesrath  removed so that parliament may have  the deciding voice in the affairs of tho  nation.  "Then we niiist have a reduction in  armaments. I don't see the millenium  in sight yet, but tho production of  arms could be controlled by an international commission on. which the  present belligerents and neutrals  would be represented. This commission would have its agents in every  country to see that the manufacture  of arms was reduced to th-j scale imposed on all nations. Limitation of  armaments can be accomplished only  by international agreement, and it  would be necessary to have an international force to see that those agreements were observed."  My informant, who has had excellent opportunities of forming a considered opinion, added that the gravity of the situation andithe prodigious  nature of the struggle ahead were not  under-estimated in France, which, he  said, was resolute in pursuing, the war  to the bitter end.  "There will be no lessening of efforts," he said, "when the Germans  are driven out of France. France regards the struggle as a war of civilization, and is prepared to act up to the  spirit of Premier Viviani's recent declaration. France was never so fortunate in the absence of ambitious  men searching after self-glorifications.  There is more unity of national sentiment than in England, and a supreme.  desire to subdue an element which  would tend to weaken France internally."  Heroism and Chivalry  Idle Curious Not Wanted  Enemy    Cheers     Brave     Conduct   of  French Stretcher-bearers  Le Temps prints a letter written by  a French soldier to his family, which  illustrates how French heroism was  chivalrously recognized by the Germans.  "Before Montaquan, in the Somme  district," he says, "was" a villa which  tlie    Germans    held   strongly,    and  which we vainly tried to storm.   Our  greatest efforts only brought us    to  the enemy's wire entanglements.   At  midnight several of our woundel lay j  helpless before the. German trenches. ;  whence it was certain death for   us !  lo try to fetch them,   On the follow-:  ing    morning two stretcher-bearers��������� j  one belonging to a religious order��������� j  left  the French lines and coolly approached  the  German  wires,  waving  Red Cross flags.  "The fusillade immediately ceased  on both sides, as a German officer  cried in good French, 'What are you  going to do?' The bearers answered j  coolly, 'Pick up the wounded.' The !  German replied, 'Very good, I giv*j  you permission, but you ought to  nave come yesterday, thus saving  them a wretched night. I .would certainly have orderedjny men to cease  tiring.'  "One of the German officers-shook  hands with the religious brother, saying, 'You are brave fellows. We give  you half an hour to finish your work,  and the firing will begin again.'  "Meanwhile the' German soldiers  lying on a bank nearby waved their  hats, cheering loudly. Thus were saved nearly a dozen wounded, all of  whom are now recovering."  To Increase Foed Production  Over the porch of tho Old South  church at Boston is chiseled:  "Behold! 1 have set before you an  open door," and under, on the door,  is printed in emphatic letters: "Positively no admittance."  Pleasure Seeking Visitors Only Adding to Burden of Government  Advices from England are that idle  visitors to Great Britain are only adding to the burden in that country. The  great influx of visitors, out of idle  curiosity,- has alarmed the government, and they wish such visitors to  consider the situation in the British  Isles before adding, to the burden, in  short, to sum up, the British Islands  are no place today for curious pleas-  uer seeker.i. If- the influx continues,  the home government may resort to  measures to check it. Those who  have business are welcome, but those  who go out of curiosity are only embarrassing the government and are  not wanted until normal conditions  prevail.  "Can any one in the audience lend  mc a flO gold piece?" asked the prestidigitator.  "On what?" queried the pawnbroker  in tbe third row. '  Finance   Minister  Addresses   Agricultural Conference on Need of Increased Farming  Speaking at the agricultural conference held at Ottawa, Hon. W. T.  White stated-that the hiinister of agriculture had announced and was preparing to carry out an extensive programme for stimulating food production.  "A new era had now dawned," said  Mr. White, in concluding his remarks,  "in which the policy wouhMic to  greatly increase production. This was  a new national policy of patriotism, I e-  cause at this juncture patriotism and  production march hand in hand.  Britain's fleet ensures the safe transport of Britain's food sitppV, but does  not ensure the supply itself. The dominions of.the empire ought to make  that supply certain and ample. Canada will do her full share an:l more, if  possible, in this, as in other things.  "Our soldiers offer their lives. Those  who remain at home may be depended  upon to offer their labor."

Assistance of Japan  Japanese Foreign Legion Would Help  to Crush Germans  The Japanese foreign legion, now  being raised voluntarily in Japan to  reinforce France on the firing line,  will be very welcome. For the first  time officialdom acknowledges this.  It is admitted that the raising of a  volunteer force of Japs to tender their  services as La Payette did in the  American revoluntionary war, will  solve a knotty problem. Official participation by the regular Japanese  army, under their regular officers and  in every way on the same basis as the  British, French aud Belgians, night result in a serious complication. Thoy  might have to be paid and Japan  would be in a position to claim much  of the credit for victory should her  sons aid in the final crushing of the  German empire.  But with the foreign legion coming  at least one objection would be solved.  These men are reported to be picked  veterans of the ^tusso-Japanoso war.  They are to be equipped as few Japanese troops ever have been. It is  rumored that at their head will  come ont of Japan's greatest military  geniuses, a man whose name will  mean much to the allies.  Xot only will the foreign legion  fight on French soil, but it is expected  the Japanese army will eventually enter the war In the west, as an active  ally of Russia and Britain. There is  said to be. a growing sentiment in  Britain to ask Japan to take over the  protection of Egypt and India, thus releasing for active service against Germany the many British regiments now  held idle in those two countries. Russia is .viid to have suggested that she  would welcome a si alliance of which  would permit the Japs to take a position with tlie Russians on the firing  line in East Prussia, in Galicia and  elsewhere along the miles of hatiro-  front extending across the confine.H  of Europe.  Britain and Russia could carily pay  Japan for mis work.
