"He recommended that  tenders be: called for for the construction of the North Pork sidewalk. Some grading-hid been done  on Columbia street.

The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that the  provincial authorities were uncertain as to the exact date when Sam  Shannon could be admitted to.the  Old Men's Home at Kamloops. The  old gentleman had recently broken  a legj and be was now in the Grand  Forks hosjjital.  A petition was rec.jiv d fro n the  hotel men of the city, asking f >c a  reduction of the semi- mnual liceme.  fee from 8250 to $150 in view of the  fact that the hours for keeping their  bare open had been, greatly short  ened. Aid. Sheads, Donaldson and  McArdle expressed themselves as  being opposed to granting tbe reduction, while Aid. Submitter and  Allen thought that,'as , the hotel  men's business hours had been considerably curtailed, they were entitles to some consideration. A resolution, offered by Aid. Sheads and  Donaldson, to the effect that the reduction be not  granted,    was   sup-  third reading stage. The bylaw  provides for a salary of. 8350, to b<j  paid tbe mayor out of the current  year's revenues.  Aid, Sheads was granted leave, to  introduce an aldermen's indemnity  byluw. This was also advanced to  the third reading stage The bylaw,  provided for a salary of $225 to each  of the aldermen, but Aldermen  Sobtiitter and JSheads thought that,  in view of existing conditions and  in order to set a good example to  future councils, some redaction  should be made in tbe amount. On  motion of Aid. Sheads and Schnitter,  the salary was reduced to 8175., . ..,"  The- mayor stated that, in view  of the fact that the aldermen had  voted to reduce their salaries, he was  willing to make a similar cut in his  own, and Aid. Sheads gave notice  of a new mayor's remuneration bylaw.  The Surplus Women  According to the   1911 census   in  England, Wales and Scotland, there  were about 1,500,000 more   women  than men.    If the war is prolonged,  and the British armies have to  take  the brunt of the Western fighting to  defeat the Germans,the disparity on  the return of peace is likely to be increased   by   another million.    That  would include-the loss of  men   who  are wholly disabled'aud   have to be  maintained by: their faiiiilies  or" the  state." The preponderance of women  is causing a  great  deal of anxiety.  Frequently   suggestions   are   made  that the widows and their children,  aud   single   Women    who have lost  their   stake   in   Britain, should mi  grate to tbe dominions, e   joing   up  ihe balance at   home.    It   would be  unwise  for  a  year  or two after the  war to  begin a systematic   encouragement   of   the migration of helpless womeu and their families.  Canada, for instance, will   have   to   reabsorb three or four hundred  thousand men into its industries.    For a  time there is bound to be a good deal  of unemploymenl,for industries that  have wuittled down their output according to  the labor  decrease  can  not iuataully bring it up to the" old  standards.  Canada could   do with a  good supply of   British women willing to go mio household service.and  to   undertake''.-Other.-'of the cheaper  forms of female   labor.    At   present  sucn labor is almost   impossible   to  obtain,    But   lor a    while alter the  war  the   social  readjustment   here  will   provide   a   supply of   almost  every   kind   of   labor, and   British  widows   and  tamilies might have a  hard time of it. Indications promise  that Conada will maintain the wartime prosperity it is  now   enjoying,  but there can be no sure banking on  that.  Shem El-Nassem Temple No. 1-77,  Dramatic Order Knights of Khoras-  8 m, held a ceremonial at Phoenix  Wednesday night, which was at-  tended'.bv large numbers of Dokays  from various points in the Boundary and. Kootenay. Candidates for  initiation were present from Grand  Forks,.

A meeting of the Grand Forks  Co-operative Fruit Growers' association was held in the board of trade  rooms Saturday evening. The details of a comprehensive marketing  plan were discussed.  A. D. Morrison,the local optician,  has supplied The Sun's mining reporter with a pair of glasses that are  admirably adapted for taking notes  at a distance and also at close range.  Any mining activity that may in  future occur on Hardy mountain  must necessarily be in plain view of  his optics, he says.  Mrs. Malcolm Moarison. of Midway, was a visitor in the city yesterday.  At the annual school meeting in  Cascade last Saturday the retiring  senior trustee, S. ELindy, was the  only nominee and was declared  elected by acclamation as trustee for  tbe ensuing three years, and E. H.  Smith was elected auditor. An appropriation of $750 was decided  upon for tbe coming year, being the  same amount as last year. .

The "smoker'.' tendered O com-  pany, 225th battalion, in the opera  house last Saturday was very large  ly attended by both soldiers and  civilians, and a very pleasant' evening was spent by all. An excellent  program of vocal and instrumental  music was rendered. Both local  and military talent took part. All  the numbers were heartily encored,  and the audience was kept in happy  frame of mind to the end.  Shortly before 12 o'clock J. D.  Campbell made an address to the  members of D company. H.e complimented the officers and men on  the tine military appearance of the  company, and expressed confidence  that they would uphold the^.splen-  did record for courage and gallantry  set by the Canadian soldiers who  had preceeded them to tbe front.  He wished them the best of luck,  and hoped every one of them would  return to Grand Forks after the  war.  Col. Glossop, the officer in command of D company, made a short  response. He thanked the Daughters of the Empire and the citizens  of Grand Forks and district���������in  which he included Greenwood and  Phoenix���������for the many courteses  extended the company during ith  stay in the city.  The singing of i;God Save the  King" brought tbe entertainment to  a close.  The soldiers and a  large   number  of the citizens then   headed  for  the  C.P.R. aepot, where a   weary   wait  for  the  troop   train  was patiently  endured.  It was 3:15 Sunday morning   when    tbe   train,   composed of  thirteen   coaches   and   having   on  board the   members  of  Companies  A, B and C, from Fernie, Cre.n brook  and Nelson, pulled into the  station  from   Nelson.    Another  coach was  added to the train here.     When the  train pulled out for Penticton, after  a   stop   of   about   fifteen   minutes,  there were between   six   and   seven  hundred    soldiers on   board.

Pushing- on to Arctic Ocean  No Standard Canadian  Butter  It is to be regretted that no standard grade,of butter exists in'Canada,  Kuni]ar"to'- that which exists in New  Zealand,'-Denmark and several other  countries. Our butter in foreign markets is not known .is Canadian butter  but rather as Ontario butter, Quebec  butter or Saskatchewan butter.  The Dominion authorities have, recognized for some time that the industry is suffering because no standard exists. Steps are now-being taken  to.'bring''-the -butter.-makers of the  country -together in district meetings  and to evolve a standard grading system which will apply to Canadian  Canadian butter in general.  Producers should do all possible to  facilitate this work as the future success of .the industry will-'to-' a. great  extent depend upon its success. Farm  products which have been standardized will'surely bring a higher price  in the markets of the world than thdse  which conform to no set standard.  Word  Received From R. N. W. M.  P.

The national  <-OiOr is of "course blue and not green.  The adoption of the "immortal green"  dates,'-it is generally supposed, from  the rebellion of '08. At that time Ul-  .-ter Orangemen made common cause  with the Irish nationalists of the  south, and a green flag was chosen  as their ensign because green was the  color produced by thy blending of  orange and blue.

Celebration of Anzac Day  Glowing  Tribute   Paid   to   Heroes   by  George Mc L. Brown,  European  Manager of the C. P. R.  On April 24th the "Pall Mall Gazette" of London, England contained  many views of the celebration of Anzac Day at Westminster Abbey commemorating the landing of troops from  Australia mid New /.Zealand on the  Gallipoli Peninsula which occurred  on April 25, 1916. Among them appeared the following glowing tribute paid  by Mr; George Mc L. Brown, European  Manager of the C. P. 11.  "The solemn beauty'oF Westminster  Abbey, which echoes with the story  of our past, is a fitting shrine in which  to commemorate the noble "Anzac"  dead. Not alone because of the valour, the fortitude, and the sacrifice,  are the memories of those lives laid  downj previous to the Empire, but because they symbolize the high qualities  which throughout centuries have gone  to the building up of the British race.  The courage and the chivalry of: our  forefathers lived again in those dauntless heroes-of. Gallipoliwho have passed on undimmed the traditions of our  history. A nd wherever tnose ������������������ traditions  are-.-��������� reverenced,  in  the  United  Australia, New Zealand, ''-.and"-'Tasmania, in Canada, in* South Africa���������  wherever the British flag flies there  .will be glorified those valiant men  who strengthened the old, and-forged  new bonds to draw closer together and  make of us one people. Asa Canadian,"  .1 speak with certainty when I say that  in no part of the Empire is the service  the Anzacs have rendered more universally recognized than in Canada.  We feel that their splendid story is our  pride and honor too, and that they  have helped to bring home to us  afresh the truth that though the seas  may roll between,- we are all Mother  country, and daughter nations, one  Empire. Not each for each, but one  for all���������we die, we live.'"  They Had  Down in Georgia u negro organization used the ceremonies of a popular  white lodge, which went into court  for relief. Its lawyer waxed warm in  his plea.  He said- "Why, Your Honor, these  negroes have got our passwords, our  J.tu'iiiij signs, our secret work, our  badges and our emblems."  Mr.-athkss, lie stopped as the .judge  loaned forward with a. .smile arid remarked: "It would also, appear that  they ha\e trot your goat"  ���������"Engaged to four girls at once? How  do you explain such shameless' conduct.-"   "I   don't   know!  Women Watchmen'  ��������� Tn Germany and Austria, women, as  in Great Britain, are releasing men  from secular employments for the war,  and a Berlin investigator affirms that  they are specially successful as night  watchmen.  At Lichtenburg one of these lady  watchmen secured the arrest of two  notorious burglars. Another waited  until three burglars had packed their  loot into a motor-car and then jumped on the footboard as' the car was  driving off; the burglars were so  alarmed that they jumped out of the  car arid left it and the booty to the  watchwoman."  Of course, we all are aware that  ladies are experts**.at capturing men  in am- case.  Wi  Some Problems  have   been   training  our youth  merely to be better farmers,  but this  Buying Up Hordes  Scarcity of Horses All Over Dominion  is the Report  . Since the outbreak of the war, the  DritislvRemount : Commission has  purchased in Canada 15,000 horses.  S,0p6'.'have" been .-bought" by French  contractors and 25,000 by the Canadian  Department' of Militia. The Department of Militia is now engaged in  buying an additional thousand head.  The British Remount Commission has  purchased over 700 since March and  is buying daily in Montreal. French  contractors are anxious, to obtain  supplies and are arranging to buy all  that are available both in the East  and in the West. It is understood  that, as a result of llic purchases already made, army buyers are finding  it increasingly difficult, both in United States and in Canada, to readily  secure the number of horses which  they require, particularly of the typo  suitable for heavy cavalry or heavy  artillery.  'In.addition to the purchases for  army account, commercial activity  from two distinct quarters has exerted a very evident influence upon the  Canadian horse market during the  past three or four months. Since the  beginning of the year, 0,000 horses  reached the Winnipeg Stock Yards'  from Eastern Canada and 5,917 were  shipped from 'the same yards west-  word, mostly to Saskatchewan. During  the, months of January, February and  March, 1,805 horses were exported to  the United States. A few hundred  more went forward fo the same market  in   April.

On account of farmers' credit with  the banks being curtailed, there has  been a falling off in the breeding of  horses since 1914  Tourist���������What very changeable weather you get down here !

The Imperial Chancellor, in his  famous war speech in the Reichstag,  said, "there must be a new Belgium."  Evidently the Belgians in East Africa  are of the same thinking. TJiey have  captured 00 miles of Geiman territory  there, and named the first town that  they  took  possession of. Liege.  A Stupid Subterfuge  The stupidity and hypocrisy of Germany's contention that her systematic  campaign of murder and piracy at sea  was .in retaliation'for Great Britain's  "attempt to starve millions of Germans into submission" have Jong been  apparent to tlie neutral world. Aside  from the fact that the blockade is. a  legitimate moans of warfare, every  schoolboy knows or ought to know that  it was not established until after Get-  many announced her "submarine  blockade" of the British Isles in February, 1915, and her determination to  torpedo every ship that left or approached British shores, whether neutral or belligerent.���������Victoria Times.

There is a decided economic difference between the news that the German authorities have instructed the  people to slay crows and storks for  iood purposes, and the sale of supor-  Jluous jewellery in London, England.  At a sale of that kind $140,000 was  laised for the Red Cross.  V. C. For English Curate - '  Great Britain has been delighted to  read that the Victoria Cross had been  conferred upon a temporary chaplain  of the Forces, a London curate from  tho Thames-side parish of St. Peter's,  Dcptford.  Three days running, during heavy  lighting, lie went repeatedly, backwards and forwards, under continuous and heavy shell and machine-gun  fire, between our original trenches and  those captured from the enemy, in  order to tend and rescue wounded  men.'.' In the first two days he brought  in twenty-two who had been badly  wounded, and three were actually  killed while he was dressing their  wounds; then next day he took charge  of a party of volunteers and once more  went out- to bring in those who remained.

A young and ambitious preacher  who was staying at a friend's house  retired to his room for an hour or so  each day to practice pulpit oratory.  Although he did not know it, at times  his impassioned tones could be heard  throughout tho house. A Bishop happened to call one day when the budding orator was holding forth. "Gracious men!" exclaimed tho Bishop.  "Pray, what might that be?" "Sit  down, Bishop!"-his friend replied.

Invented by an American officer,  Col. Lewis, and made in Belgium almost up to the moment when the German scouts entered the city of its manufacture, the invention narrowly  cscaped capture by the Germans.  It3 killing power may bo gauged  from the fact that in one trench recently one of these guns, manned by  a crew of two men, accounted for 330  Germans in half an hour.  The welfare of the baby is the fond  mother's greatest aim.

Concerning the Tablets  Mrs. Richard Boston, Pembroke, Ont.,  says:���������"Baby's Own Tablets saved my  little girl when nothing else appeared  to help her. I would not attempt to  raise a baby without keeping the Tablets in- the house."

Chelmsford, Ont. (Special.)���������"We  have found Dodd's Kidney Pills extremely good. We are in good health  thanks to Dodd's Kidney Pills."  These arc the words of Miss Delia  Charron, a well known resident here.  Others tell the same story. They have  tried Dodd's Kidney Pills and found  them good.  For Dodd's Kidney Pills as a tonic  and family medicine are without an  equal.   When you feel worn, tired and  run down the chances are ten to one-  that your kidneys are at fault.  When the "kidneys become clogged  or out of order, the circulation becomes sluggish, the impurities are not  strained out of the blood and the result is weariness and lack of energy  all over the body.  This condition is not only disagreeable but dangerous as well. The impurities in the blood are the seeds of  disease. If they are not removed  Rheumatism, Lumbago, Gravel, Dropsy, Diabetes, or Bright's Disease may  result.  Guard against these diseases and  get back your accustomed energy by  using Dodd's Kidney Pills.

It will be recalled that on the 4th  of   August   last year meetings were  organized throughout  the   province  in accordance with a wish expressed  by the central committee of the national patriotic organizations in England,   at   which   a   resolution was  passed affirming the   determination  of the empire to carry on the war to  a successful conclusion.  These meetings were held generally  throughout the empire, and through  the kindness of mayors, reeves,  government agents and other pro  ininent citizens, the response in this  province was recognized as materially adding to the success achieved,  tie whole result being most impressive and invigorating.  It has been again suggested by  the central uommittee,and approved  by his royal highness the Ouke ol  Connaught, that we in Cinada  i-kould again reiterate by passing, a'  meetings to be on the 4th of August  next, a similar resolution.  Lieutenant Governor  Barnard, ��������� in  his communication  to   the  council,  asks for the good will and active cooperation of tbe citizens in   organizing a meeting   here  in   furtherance  ��������� of tbe  undertaking, saying  that as  longas tbe unfaltering endurance of  the empire is more and more tested,  a visible demonstation of its changeless resolution victoriously toachieve  our. high   and   solemn purpose will  be of power and   value   in the.faith  and, purpose of our" fellow   citizens,  and, in the eyes of hostile and   neu  tral-.countries.  The resolution as proposed to be  passed by all the cities and towns  follows:  "Resolved, That on this, the sec  ond anniversary of a righteous war,  this meeting of the citizens of Grand  Forks records its inflexible deter  mination to continue to a victorious  end the struggle in  maintenance  of  to make arrangements for  a   public  meeting on A'iirust4.

I called in another doctor, but  with no, better results. My feet and  legs became frightly swollen, I suffered with severe pains in my back and  sides. I would be all day dragging  around at my household work, and I  was beginning to give up all hope of  recovery. 1 had been urged to try  Dr. Williams Pink Pills, but like  many others, thought they could not  help me when doctors had failed to  do so, but after much urging I decided  to try them.

Warner Allen, the representative  of tho British Press with the French  Army, writos-as follows:  France, both the Franco iu tho trenches and the France behind the lines,  fully appreciates the assistance given  by the British army during the battle  of Verdun. Morally, it was no small  encouragement to {he French troops,  who have fought so long and so heroically, to ki'iow how, by an effort unprecedented in the history of war, the  British Expeditionary Force had swelled in numbers to the size .of a great  Continental army, and.that they could  count on the, ungrudging support of  their comrades and allies. Materially,  it was an invaluable service that the  British troops were able to relieve  and release for other duties am.entire  French army that was holding one of  the most difficult sectors of the front.  The aid given was none the less valuable for being indirect, and it is de-  : si ruble, in the interests of historical  truth, that certain unfounded reports  should be contradicted. I ani authorized to' state that the announcement  reported to have been made in the  Australian Commonwealth Parliament,  to the effect that a brigade of Australian heavy aitillery was actually fight-  Jng at Verdun, is incorrect. Other  "rumors suggesting that British guns  - nnd British troops were actually taking part in the battle are equally without/IbuiKlation. The British army has  , given far more assistance than could  possibly have been afforded by such  piecemeal aid, and the French force  which has barred the wa;. to the Germans has remained entirely homogeneous. This fact is fully appreciated in France, and an eloquent testimony to the achievement of the  British army is given by the following document, which will be published  in the next number of the Bulletin  dosArmees, which may be regarded  ������s the official organ of the French  soldiers in the trenches:  ��������� On' September 25, 1915, when tho  whole French army was waiting impatiently in Champagne and Artois,  news-arrived that the British army at  ihcside of its French' Allies."'had  gained a brilliant victory. In a few  brief words it was'announced'to tlie  troops: "The English have taken-Loos.  They have made their way into' IIul-  .. luch. On a front of five miles, with a  depth ��������� in places of two-and-a-half  miles, they have carried the German  trenches by storm. They have taken  pris'-ri'-rs-nnd guns."  In the French army there was a  general outbreak of--enthusiasm. The  biothe'rhood of arms had been expressed in action. In close, contact  with the French, at the moment  chosen by the Allied General Staff, the  English had taken the offensive and  vigorously driven their way into the  enemy's lines. Their victory was a.  symbol and a promise. Everyone  realized this, and rejoiced accordingly.  Weeks have passed since then, and  the British army has never ceased  making itself more and more feared by  the-Germans.' The day lias gone by  when the enemy could pretend to  mock at'"the.-'contemptible little army  of Marshal French. Already in the  Cambresis General r'rench's soldiers  had given the first proof of their valor.  From Crecy-en-Brie to Coulommiers  they had taken their share-in, the  victory of the Marne, and since those  glorious marches, what. a. long . way  tltcy. hayeI gone and what progress they  'have' made' For months, at the side  of the French troops, the valiant soldiers of, Great Britain have served  their apprenticeship in modern war,  Mid as they gained in experience so  they increased in number. The 60,000  men of August, 1914, are today '2,500.-'  000. The" Expeditionary Force'has become a formidable army. It has often  been said that Time is fighting for  the Allies, but none of them has he  favored so greatly as the English.  It- has become a commonplace to  praise the organization., equipment,  and auxiliary services of the British  army. The striking figure of Tommy  Atkins nnd his smart bearing have  been lauded to the skies. With him  Hie French have sung tlie, chorus of  "Tippcrary." and perhaps in France  too much emphasis has been laid on  his picturesque side. There is, per-  hups, a danger of it being forgotten  that Tommy is a soldier in the most  trying of wars, and that lie fights as  a soldier should !  It is a fact, and a natural fact, that  these Englishmen, who are defending  nt their French comrades' side the  civilization and the liberty of the  world, enjoy games and exercise, and  do not lose the taste for them in their  cantonments behind the lines and  even in the trenches. In face of the  enemy, the Frenchman jokes and jests  as he is a'lwuys accustomed to. The  Englishman plays football between the  lines. This is a matter of temperament, an both have given their proofs  on the field of battle. Ask the German infantry what they think of the  warriors of lYouve Chapelle. Loos, or  St. Eloi. The successes of tlie British  army are sufficient evidence.  The list of these successes is a long  one. They are composed of daily  fjghts  throughout  twenty  months  of  war, of a thousand heroic and brilliant  episodes, of victories like those of  Loos, and of triumphs .like those just  won on the Ypres Canal at Comities  and at St. Eloi.  The blood of British soldiers���������soldiers of Great Britain and soldiers of  the Colonies���������lias mingled everywhere  with the' Wood of the French* At  every opportunity the British'' army  has proved its friendship and has only  one desire���������ever to do more for tlie  common cause.  Turkey Must be, Destroyed  No  Guarantee of    Safety  in    Europe  With  Turkey to   Make Trouble  . The first and most inevitable duty  '~f the Allies in tin's war is to rid tlm  \ujld of Turkey; not of :he Turk- as  individuals, but of Turkey as a State.  Whatever else is left undone, this task-  must be performed thoroughly, not  relentlessly or remorselessly, but in  a spirit of strict and stern justice and  as a measure of self-defence. There  can never be any guarantee of safety  in Europe with Turkey left to make  trouble; so much Enver Bey has demonstrated in 1he most thorough manner, and for this he, too, shall have  his reward when the war is over. If  he should be so unfortunate . us to  survive the advent of peace.  The. unpardonable sin of Turkey  against humanity and civilization in  this war has been that she has allowed  herself to become the catspaw of Germany in the hitler's effort to realize  her dream of world-wide domination.  It was Germany's long-plotted, coldblooded, deliberate purpose to take  possession of Asia Minor," Mesopotamia, Armenia, Persia, and India in  Asia, and of the whole of eastern  Africa from the Tsthmus of Suez to the  Cape of Good Hope. To accomplish  this the aid of Turkey was necessary,  and it was secured. It was no "part  of Germany's purpose to reveal .all  this to Enver Boy, but he knows it by  this time, as all other intelligent  Turks know it. A million Armenian's  have been -assassinated with fiendish-  ness; inconceivable-..and cruelties indescribable. ' Tlie" Turkish effort to  arouse a'"holy .war'' proved a failure,  but it is necessary' to .make further  attempts impossible, and the onty effective precaution is to dissolve the  Sultanate, to obliterate Turkey, and  to outlaw the harem.'.  Germany will, after the war, remain  a great power. What will become of  Austria-Hungary is less definitely ap  parent, but also it is of less importance. Hungary, may become an independent kingdom and Austria may  become a Germanic State; all the more  reason why Serbia should be made  powerful by the annexation of Bosnia  and Herzegovina, tho absorption of  Montenegro, and the acquisition of  so much of Bulgaria as will make the  latter harmless. Greece and Rou-  mania should get what is due to them,  nnd so far that obligation on the Allies  amounts to very little. With the  Balkan States arranged for, Constantinople in the possession of Hussia,  and the future of-Asia Minor and  Mesopotamia disposed of as might,  seem .most expedient in the interest-  of a world-wide peace, Germany  would bo Completely and hopelessly  shut within her own territory. If this  fate seems a. hard'one, it cannot be  called "unjust;' it is merely tlie mem-  esis of history. Germany not only  began'the war as a means of securing  world-wide domination, but she litis  prosecuted it in ways most likely to  harden the hearts of the Allies who  will be the dictators of the terms of  her surrender.���������Toronto Globe.  South   Africans    Charged     in   Stockinged Feet  South Africans had their first'engagement in the Western Desert a  few weeks ago. A mixed force of  Anzacs, Sikhs, and Yeomanry moved  out against a large enemy force coin-  posed of Senussi and Bedouin, in  uniforms and officered by Germans  and Turks. Rain and mud compelled  the abandonment of waggons ami  motors, etc.. half way.  The South Africans early suffered  from rifle fire because of their stature, and also suffered from the execrably heavy going, being unused  to footwork. A hundred of them were  sent back with sore feet, but on hearing the South African war cry they  turned to right about, and with their  boots in their hands charged back,  taking part in the fight all day.  While returning footsore to camp  all the South Africans refused lifts,  though many were carrying their  wounded and dead comrades. They  wore proud of their work, but longing for their horses.  to the world of the plight of that ves  sol. The message, published on March  25, was made possible by a "freak"  performance on tho. part of the wireless  equipment of the Aurora. The message was received by the Naval .Radio  Station of Williainstown and the radio  station at Melbourne, when the ship  was at least five times more distant  than the normal range ot her transmitting equipment.  The. Aurora which was the relief  ship of the expedition, bioke from her  moorings in 1'oss Sea on May ti, 10J5,  and was adrift in the ice for, ten  months. The wireless equipment, a  gift from the people of Sydney, Australia, had originally an c-fieelivp  transmitting radius of only 200. miles  A month before tho ship started on  her long drift, according to The Wireless i'ress, there were added twenty  feet to the aerial masts of the Aurora  As soon as the Aurora broke away  from her moorings, Hooke endeavored  to get in touch witli the members of  the marooned '..party ashore, hoping  that they had been able io erect tho  receiving set landed previously, and  it is just possible that the land parly  learned by these'signals of the Aurora's ill fortune and were able to make  the earliest possible provision against  an unexpected twelve months on land.  The wireless Press records the expedients to which Hooke resorted in  order to inform the world of the  plight of the vessel. '.'On June 1,  1915," it says, "Hooke, basing his  ho^lPs on the fleeting possibilities of  abnormal wireless conditions, commenced to call Australia, but without  success. He nUribn.cd his total failure to elctrieal phenomena peculiar  to the polar regions, and he made exhaustive experiments with all sorts  of makeshifts in the hope of getting  definite results. It is well, perhaps,  for Hooke and his fellow adventurers  that they did not know the real reason  for (heir non-success, as'the hopes'of  relief which buoyed them up until  j their return might have been shat-  'tered.  "In the first place, the Commonwealth of Australia, in the interests  of economy, had recalled the staff of  the wireless-station at Maequarie Island. This removed the first possibility of intercommunication, with the  little party drifting in the antarctic  ice. Secondly, owinsr to military reasons, the transmitting apparatus at  Awarua had been transported to a  more distant.place,-so that had it been  possible for the.Aurora by a combination of favorable' circumstances to  send distress signals as far distant  as New Zealand she would not have  received  any  reply.  "Hooke, however, stuck to his post.  It was on July 22, 2915, that the  Aurora 'was terribly crushed in the  ice. The vessel was then 100 miles  from land and 500 ���������miles from the nearest food depot. Hooke again overhauled his apparatus, oven to the ex-  lent of lowering and re-erecting his  I masts, in the hope that by so doing he  mialit help those on shore and. his  fellows on what' appeared to be a  doomed ship. iVight after night he  sat in his cabin with the telephone  receivers strapped around his head,  straining to catch sounds which would  tell of the world's' knowledge of their  fate and efforts at'rescue. Twice he  heard faint signals, on Amrust 17 and  2G, but they were unintelligible,  "Then there came the blizzard. On  September 15, 19.15, the Aurora was  dismasted, the wireless aerial going  with the debris. 'Twice were new antennae divised by linking up the main  mast with ice hummocks, but Maequarie Island remained silent���������no one  had been left to listen. At the end  of February, with the ice breaking,  the Aurora was freed to drift with her  rudder broken.  "But the wireless operator's story  now changes from sadness to joy. On  March 25, with a quadruple aerial  eighty foot above deck, he succeeded  in obtaining definite signals from stations i/i Tasmania and New Zealand.  990 miles' distant. Then followed the  message which sin riled the globe.  This message was transmitted 900  miles with an apparatus normally  suitable for about 200 miles radius,  and eclipsed for a day at least the  interest in the great world war. Hooke  admits that navigalion '.v.r- ^vatly  assisted on the return journey by the  time and other signals received by  him from the New Zealand stations."  In This War, and That There Can be no Peace Until the  Treacherous Nation of Germany is Beaten   O    A Fatal Mistake  German    Aviator    Lands    in    British  Lines and  Machine of the  Latest  Typo   Was  Captured  A. unique incident occurred when  for the Brst' time during the war so  lar as is known, an aeroplane mistook  a hostile'aerodrome for its own.  Through the morning mist the aviators at one of tho British aerodromes  saw a-German'machine circling as if  it were about to descend. Without  interfering with its movement:*, thinking that it had lost its bearings they  ���������watched'it come lower until it finally  swept past and came, to a rest.  . This German "aviator and his pilot  saw their mistake too Jate when figures in khaki came' running up and  they realized that they were prisoners.  The captured machine was a new one  of "the latest type.  Tho great aerial activity of these  days has brought forth many daring  deeds and there have tteen numerous  narrow escapes.. One British machine  was struck by anti-aircraft gun shell  which passed through the body of tlu>  aeroplane under the foot of the pilot,  the shell exploding without harming  the. engine. All the aviator felt was a  lurch and. he. went on his way.  Another British, aviator pursuing a  German machine toward the earth  found, that his control power was ���������not  working and he descended to a road  ���������inside the German lines. The shock  of landing righted the lever and he  rose successfully, turning his machine  gun. before returning, on the German  aviator/and his pilot who had left  their machine after making a lauling.  The British aviators then returned  safely to their own lines.  Prohibition in Denver  In a speech delivered at Edinburgh,  Premier Hughes of Australia said:  After nearly two years of war tho  end is not yet in sight, but yet there  exist in our country some people to  whom the war has taught xcry little,  How does'the war go today? Arc we  inarching steadily and surely to the  point when we shall wrest the sceptre  from the grasp of the military despotism which has for 40 years menaced  the civilization of Europe ". and has  vowed, our destruction ?  I wish I could say that I thought  that in a little while all would be  well, that our arms would be speedily  crowned with victory, but in face of  'lie facts, as far as I know them, I  cannot do so. I believe, however, as  firmly as it is possible for a man to  believe, that it is impossible that  Germany should win this war. But  unless we marshal all the resources  of the empire, decisive victory will  not be ours. There can be, and must  be, iio half-measures at "'such a crisis  as this. There are men who speak  of peace, who urge that it is the  bound on duty of the. British people  to make peace before Germany is defeated. In the words of one spokesman, it is said there is nothing that  now devides England and Germany  worthy'of the sacrifice of a single human life. 1 confess that when 1 think  of a man boasting of British blood in  his veins who dares utter such a sentiment it fills me with anger and  nausea.  Nothing, forsooth, dividing England  and Germany worn.-,^ the sacrifice of  a single human life? Why, everything  divides-us.' The gulf between Heaven  and Hell is not wider than the gulf  that stands between Enorland and Germany. What a confession of decadent  futility is laid bare in ���������these words.  Thank God, the virus of degeneracy  has not eaten into the vitals of this  nation,  but there  are    some    excres-  Lack of Whiskey Does Not Kill a City I ",u<*   wh!.c������.   assuming   an   import-  v,,..,, n..w.u��������� i  ,   ������ ll'������y tl0 ,J0t Reserve, would wish  Very  Quickly J thp   v,orl(j  tQ  tMuk  ^ su(jh   senU_  Denver under prohibition! The very  idea is a startling one, and when Colorado went diy on January 1, J910, the  ���������'wets" freely predicted ihe utter ruin  of business, and even some of the  "drys" wondered how Denver- would  stand'it. But nearly four months have  gone, and ilie business men of Denver  are'beginning to realize that they are  not, dead yet, and some of them are  even hopeful of surviving for some,  time-to come.. Here are a few of the  facts. The Gas and Electric Light Co.  had prophesied a d. >.p of ?! 15.000 a  month, but instead the very first  month showed a gain of .?'10,Oo6. The  banks also had been afraid of the dry  spell, but the first month gave them  2,000 new deposits which aggregated  $757,000. Tlie department stores report that their collections are just  24 per cent, aiiead of a >iw ago. There  has been, however, quite a heavy  slump reported by the pawnshops'.  .Prohibition appears to be distinctly  unfavorable'to them, and it also hits  the undertakers rather a hard blow.  The Italian Methodist Episcopal mission has also been affected. This mission had been furnishing free meals  for 150 poor children, and since prohibition went into force they lwive not  been able to find the poor children.  They now .eat at home. In building  permits for February, Denver showed  an increase of 185 per cent., over last  year, while the average increase for  142 leading United States cities was  only 2J per cent. Evidently the lack  of whiskey docs not kill a city very  rapidly.���������Fi'oin an  Exchange.  Uncle Ernest (improving the shining  hour)���������And what do we do with tho  flesh of the whale?

It has cost  the  two   governments   more  than $250,000, half  of which  has   beeii paid   by the province.    For its members it was  a bonanza. They received $30  a day, rain or shine, Sundays,  holidays���������in short,   3G5  days  out of 365.    The .commission  was   a top-lofty, majestic  institution, too, for  it. grandly  ignored constitutional  limitation.     Commissioner    Shaw,  the member  for Kamloops.in  the provincial legislature,drew  his $30 per diem���������.wenty for  services and ten for living allowance���������during the time  he  was supposed  to  be earning  his   sessional   indemnity    of  $1000  during   the legislative  session. And they traveled like  rajahs. The last volume of the  public accounts includes items  for auto hire totaling $0000 in  one year.   The transportation  bill of the C.P.R. in that year  was $8811, while the chartering of the steamer Cassiar cost  $1085. The whole account for  the one year was $96,712, half  of which was paid by  British  Columbia.   Whether we shall  hear any more of this $250,000  potlatch beyond the  publication of its report or the possible appointment   of . another  commission  to  check  up its  work   is  highly   improbable.  Besides more commissions are  coming, in  contemplating the  cost of which we will be expected to forget all about the  Indian commission.  In cost and duration of active service the  Indian  commission which  completed   its  labors a few days  ago  holds  the record in  British   Columbia.    This is an  achievement  indeed, for it had  ambitious  rivals.    It   had   to    contend  against  the agricultural  and  labor commissions, which put  forth heroic  efforts   to maintain the pace, but   it   outdistanced  them; in fact  it  kept  in the running so long that we  had begun to regard   it as  a  permanent institution, a  sort  of a cross   the   taxpayers  of  British Columbia had to carry  in  expiation of their folly in  keeping the  McBride-Bowser  ministry in office.    Nevertheless, the members of the  Indian commission ought not to  hold the other commissions in  contempt.     The  agricultural  and labor investigators  oper-  atek for more than a year and  cost   the ' country something  like  $100,000.    They    might  have made a larger dint in the  treasury but for the  insistent  demand from the public   that  they bring their  activities  to  an end.  Besides, they did not  have the same inducement to  keep alive.    Their, remuneration was not as large as  that  which was drawn by the members of the Indian commission,  which in addition had an  expense bill to which there was  nolimit !.
