'Cdy,Vf the'  15th battalion,who left Grand, Forks  for the front with the second contingent, was reported as having  died in the hospital of wounds  received in a recent battle in France.  Mr. Coy was a native of England,  but lived in Grand Forks for some  time, conducting a plumbling shop  here for a few months -prior to his  enlisting for the front. He was a  young man of high principles, and  the news of -his death was received  with deep sorrow by his former associates here, as well as by the citizens generally. A sister���������Mrs. S. G.  Kirk���������of the deceased resides in  this city.-  % Mr. and Mrs.- M. G. Henniger returned to their home in Smith Falls,  Ont., last Saturday, after spending  a few days in this city at the home  of the former's brother, E. C. Henniger. Mr. and Mrs. Henniger were  on their homeward journey from a  two months' tour of California and  Pacific coast states and provinces..  Mr. Henniger, who is a prominent  railway contractor of Ontario, stated  that in all his.travels through far-  famed California he had not witnessed a scene that equalled in  beauty the present profusion of wild  Uowers on Fourth of July creek.  Since the new schedule on the C.  P. R. went into effect, Conductors  Foote and Nelson, late of Rossland,  have been transferred to this city.

They attended the banquet given by  the citizens of Penticton in the evening, and returned home tbe following day.  W. P. O'Connor on Tuesday received a letter from his brother-in-  law,  A.

Befriended Them in PalmyDays  The cost of building the Columbia  & Western railway from Robson  to Midway was $35,000 a mile and  represents what may be termed a  difficult section of road building, a  great deal of rock work and heavy  tunnelling being encountered during  its construction. Being built in the  days of hand labor the cost was  necessarily greater than it would be  today with the employment of labor  saving-devices and the steam shovel"  The cost of building on the prairie  or levei land has been put down by  those who have made a study of the  matter at a fraction under $10,000  per mile. A fair average cost of,  mileage in this province is given at  82.5,000 per mile.  The railway schemes of Premier  McBride pledge the government to  about 745 miles of road building at  835,000 per mile, a total of $20,-  075.000.  . A free-right of way, free materials  during construction, a grant of J280  acres of land at any divisional point  when called for, and an additional  640 acres of land for each and every  townsite laid out by the companies  interested, practically blanketing the  crown lands along the route traversed  by thpse lines, which are free from  taxation until 1926. It is safe to  say that tbe values created here will  be worth to these companies fully  four times the money grant pledged  in guaranteeing the bonds, and  will  and   Privates   G.  J.

Nicholls, presidbnt of the  Granby Consolidated/at 'the recent  directors' . meeting in New York,  said;    .  "The company is in a strong position and I would like to keep ic so.  If the question of dividends is taken  up you "may be sure the directors  will take only such action as will be  best for the shareholders in the long  run.  Another interested in thet com-,  pany said that operations wer<* go  iug on practically in full and that  the organization was in splendid  condition. He added, when queried  about the dividend:  "The only dividend -discussion at  the meeting was the reading of a  paragraph from a" local morning  paper. The directors can not be in-  fiueuced to declare a dividend, and  action will only be taken when they  deem it fit.  "The fact that the mines of the  company were also entirely shut  down for a time after the declaration of war last August seems to  have been forgotten by some persons. There were overhead charges  which had to be met fiora surplus,  and the company is now recuperating, as it were'."'  The Granby company is in strong  financial condition.  Its fioa ing de1 t  will be paid off about June   1   from  the proceeds of the sale  of $2,000,  000  6 per cent convertible bonds.  Part of the lunds received will  also be used to care for 8850,000 of  non-convertible debentures and to  provide additional  working  capital.  With the cost of producing copper  at 1\ cents, delivered in New York,  Granby at the present level of prices  can add a considerable amount to its  surplus.   '  When dividends are resumed on  the stock it will be fairly certain  that, payments will be made regularly, as one director stated recently  the board would only start dividends  when the members were certain  there would be no further interruption to disbursements.  Commenting on the above, the  Boston Commercial, from which the  article was taken, says: "Granby  stockholders have no occasion to  worry if tbe resumption of dividend  payments is deferred until Septem  .ber. Evidently it is the desire of  the management, as it should be, to  see all of the company's floating indebtedness of every nature, including advances on copper in transit  and in process of refining, cleaned  up before a distribution is made to  stockholders.. Granby's earnings  must be running now at the rate of  825 a share, and when divtdends  finally ure resumed, they should be  large enough to cause the stock to  sell well above $100."  'Place of internment should"' be  stated'always, if possible, and parcels can not be accepted unless place  of internment, is stated. All addresses must be in ink.  2. Communications- should be  limited to private and family news  aud to necessary business communications, and should not be sent too  frequently.  No reference to the naval, military  or political situation or to naval or  military movements and organizations are permitted. Letters or post  cards containing such references will  not be delivered..  3." Friends of prisoners of war  are advised to send post cards in  preference to"' letters, as post cards  are less likely- to be delayed" If letters are sent, they should not exceed in length two sides of a sheet  of note papers and should contain  nothing but the sheet of note paper.  On no account should the writing be  crossed.  4. Letters can not for the present  he accepted for registration.  5. Postage need not be paid either  on letters or parcels addressed to  prisoners of war.  6. No letters'should be enclosed  in parcels, and newspapers must not  on any account be sent. So" far as is  known no restriction on the contents  of parcels; tobacco may be sent and  will be admitted duty free, but food  stuffs" of a perishable character  should not be seut. Parcels should  not exceed 11 pounds in weight.  7: Remittances can be-made by  money order to prisoners of war.  Instructions as to how to proceed  can be obtained from postmHStnrs of  accounting p<-,0t offices. The transmission of coin, either in letters or  parcels, is expressly prohibited.  Postal notes and bank notes should  not be sent  8. It must be understood that no  guarantee of the delivery of either  parcels or letters can be given and  that the post office accepts no responsibility. In any case, considerable delay may take place  and failure to receive an ac  knowledgement should not necessarily be-taken as an indication that  letters and parcels sent have not  been delivered.  9. So far as is known, prisoners  of war in Germany are allowed to  w.ritte letters or post cards from time  to time; but tney may not always  have facilities for doirig so, aud the  fact that no communication is received from them need not give rise  to anxiety.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  ��������� Last Monday the first regular passenger train was run over the recently completed Kettle Valley line  between Midway and Penticton,  inaugurating a tri weekly service  from- the Boundary-Kootenay district to the coast via Penticton and  Sp'ence's Bridge. The event was  duly observed by a number of city  officials from the towns of this district,members of boards of trade and  prominent citizens making' the trip  on the first train into Penticton,  where a banquet was tendered the  railway officials and other visitors  by the citizens in the evening.  The completion of this section  of  the  coast Kootenay   Itne  marke an  important   milestone   in   the transportation history of southern British  Columbia.    With only a tri-weekly  service, the benefit  derived   by   the  travelling public  of   the Boundary  and    Kootenay  districts   from the  competion   of   the road is scarcely-  perceptible.    The time to the coast  is not reduced, and the fare remains  the same as over the old line.    But  the ultimate results,   when   the line  is finished through the Hope mountains and daily trains  are   run, will  be of vast importance.^  At  present  the greatest blessing of  the road  is  that it affords the people from Midway west an outlet  to the  outside  world.  The Kettle Valley railway company, a subsidiary of the Canadian '  Pacific railway, began work on this  road in 1910, when Andrew Mc-  Cullocb, the chief engineer, put out  his men locating and surveying.  Grading operations were first begun  July, 1910, on the line which extends fronv' Midway to Merritt b,y  the Macdoncll Gzozwski company  over a distance of thirty miles. Rice  & Co. completed thirty five miles of  grading west from Midway in the  same year. From that time until  the present construction work has  been carried on continuously.  The line will materially shorten  the route between Vancouver and  southern interior points. The total  distance from Merritt ~to Midway is  275 miles. From Merritt to Pentic  ton is 40 miles and -from Penticton  to Midway it is 135 miles.  The road runs through a country  exceedingly rich in mineral, timber  and agricultural resources.  B. R. Gilpin, customs officer at this  port, makes the following detailed report of the fcustoms receipts at the  various sub-customs offices, as reported to tho chief office in this city,  for the month of May, 1915:  Grand Forks ".   81,563.25  Phoenix..      1,361.32  Carson         248.00  i Cascade  53.32  Total   $3,225.89  Letters to Prisoners of War  1.

GRAND   FORKS,   B.C.  ;    ���������  A GOOD CHEW IN A CLEAN WRAPPER.  10 CENTS PER PLUG  Lost Land That  ieen  Sir  William Mackenzie's ^.Expedition  Has Rediscovered -Islands ,  ��������� Canada is riclier in the possession  or' islands in Jhulson Bay than lias  for over two centuries been thought  to be the ease. The archipelago of  small islands paralleling the Ungava  seaboard of Hudson Bay at an average distance to tlie .seaward of some  seventy miles, and known on lh3  admiralty eharts as the South  Belchers* the North Belchers, Baker's  Dozen and King George Islands, have  through a series of four years' exploration by Sir William Mackenzie's  expeditions to Hudson Bay been  proved to be merely The small islands  surrounding a range of enormous islands.  They -were discovered by IIr. Hobt.  J. Flaherty, F.H.G.S., and Mr. La  Duke, who experienced considerable  hardship and clanger in the discovery.  The accomplishment required ' the  courage and calmness that have made  both successful explorers. "  Tha islands -contain "a tribe of  Eskimos peculiar t" the region. As  -late as 1G68 the old charts of Henry  Hudson and others showed three  large islands outlying from the Ungava" seaboard of Hudson Bay. The  discoveries of Sir William's expedition are, it would seem, really a rediscovery of the islands, and it means  that this range of islands has practically been lost to the world for two  centuries.  It seems strange in these days,  when the world "is so small, after  all," that new rivers, new lands-and  new lakes are being discovered. It is  astounding that, these discoveries  take place within 890 miles of Toronto. But yet that is what has been  done by these two explorers. ^ The  story of the discoveries of Champlain  have a great place in the history of  Canada, and it was thought that th'e  day of the geographical explorer was  gone, but* the story told adds more  to the history of Canadian exploration.  Here is an area of more than '1,000  square miles, not in an uninhabitable latitude beyond the circle, but  within the latitude of Edinburgh, in  Scotland, and a few miles norlh of  the latitude of Prince Rupert, in>  British Columbia. Perhaps this discovery may give the readers a clear  idea of the immensity of the Hudson  Bay itself���������an inland sea of more  than 350,000 square  miles.  The story of how these islands  were ultimately found just before  the termination of the third and last  expedition (these expeditions covering a period of four years) is fascinating to a degree.  Of the discovery Mr. Flaherty said:-  '"We made out three big islands. The  main island, topographically is a  series of ranges parallel to its length,  with a maximum- height of 700 to  S00 feet In formation it is similar  to the land masses on the north shore  of Lake Superior, particularly on  Thunder Bay. It is covered with  grasses and Arctic vegetation. From  the height to which "He climbed we  could see rolling land masses, studded  with silver lakes, which appeared to  he great breeding places for wild  swan and geese and ducks.  "The part we explored is not inhabited by Eskimos, but on an island to  the .westward''we.'found, old stone igloos partly in ruins, and. elaborate  stone wind blinds, used by the Eskimos in goose hunting. The whole  island area is more than 4*000 square  miles in-extent, with a complete  length north and south of nearly 400  miles; that is, from-the South Belchers, latitude 55 degrees north, to latitude CO degrees north of the Ottawa  Islands. Looking from the hilltops of  the main island over sweeps of valley and rise one got an impression;  of highly cultivated areas, but that was  due to the green moss and grass tftat  covered   almost  everything."  The results of the first expedition to  Hudson Bay were responsible for the  outfitting of a more elaborate expedition via Northern Ontario and Moose  Factory. A smnll 36 foot auxiliary  schooner is being equipped a Moose  Factory for the purpose.  Flaherty tell; the story ns fol-  the east coast of Hudson Bay for  more than P.00 miles, at an average  distance away of about 70 miles, were  of vastly greater extent, than was  generally believed," said Mr. Flaherty.  "On the Admiralty charts they appear  as mere clots. Yet it is a fact that on  ihe .chart published in 'l(j6:i three  great islands are shown in Hudson  Bay, and two of these appear on  Hudson's original map, that explorer  having apparently cruised close  enough to their shores to note them.  The innumerable, sea-swept reel's and  small island outlets, have proved, it  seems, an effectual guard against the  approach of a ship to the main island  system since tlie clays of small vessels, and the Ialcr Admiralty charts  have been based, on information  given by Captain' Coates, a Hudson  Bay shipmaster, in 17!!I.  "Vou will find on the maps these  groups of little dots with ihe names  about as Captain Coates gave them���������  Norlh and South Belchers. Baker's  Dozen, King George, The Sleepers and  Two Brothers. It is true Hudson's islands appear on the old maps some  distance to the westward of these, but  that may be" on account of an error  of the early voyagers iu determining  the location of the lower portion of  the east coast line of the bay. The  islands are in pretty much the position Hudson placed them, and ' are  surrounded by the ' dots" that appear  on the Admiralty charts. Owing to directions'-of the trade, routes in Hudson Bay and the dangerous character  of the islets, their neighborhood has  been given a wide berth by mariners.  "At Great White Itiver 1 had found  a book of copies of a series of letters  that passed between Governor Sir  George Simpson ancl his factors of  t!ieN Hudson's Bay Trading Company  in 1846,' which, curiously enough,  partly concerns a proposed trip of exploration-to the islands of our- discovery, and the correspondence shows  clearly the failure to. ��������� discover other  than ' a group of) outlying reefs. To  the best of my {knowledge, the Hudson's Bay Company has been ignorant,  of the existence of the larger islands."  A feature film of Eskimo life will  be shown shortly.  The exxplorers maintained between  :!0 and 100 Eskimos and 100 sledgc-  dogs for motion picture work.

Cut off the supply, of copper, and  sooner or later nowadays a war comes-  to an end-  This is because the red metal enters into the composition, in a greater or less degree, of nearly all-the  munitions of war. Take, for instance,  projectiles from big guns. Round the |  base of each one of these is- a band  of cdppcr, which, when the gun is  tired, expands and grips the-interior  rifling of the weapon, causing the projectile to rotate.  . It also serves another, and a very  important purpose. By its expansion  'at the very moment' the charge ignites, tlie explosive gases ' are held  in check, as it. were,'and forced to expend all but a tiny fraction of'then-  energy in 'driving - the projectile  through the bore of the iiieee.  , If Germany , merely' wanted  enough, copper' to enable her to make  these bands for her big gun projectiles, she could'probably supply the  demand within her own borders���������she  'produces about .25,000 tons, per annum, or at all eve::ts, she'would be  able to smuggle iu enough, from professedly neutral neighbors. But there  are other demands for the metal  which are far more insistent, and notably . that in connection with small  arm ammunition, that is to say, rifle  cartridges.    ���������  These are made of solid drawn  brass;- no other substance will do,  because all others ire,liable to jam  in the barrel. Nov.- ordinary brass  contains three parts-of capper tb two  of zinc, but.the fine brass .from which  cartridges are made consists of three  parts of copper and only one of zinc.  . Experts state tha-. thirteen tons of  copper are required for a million  rounds of small-arm ammunition.  Consequently every cartridge contains rather less than half an ounce  of copper. One has only- to bear  these facts in mind, and to remember  also that it has been computed that  on an average about thirty millions  of cartridges are being fired away  daily in the various theatres of the  war! to realize how absolutely vital  it is to Germany that her imports of  copper should not be" materially, interfered with.  But this is what is happening. The  British fleet commands the seas, and  copper has been declared to be contraband of war. One -resu't ot' that is  that the Gdrman government is now  offering the huge price of ?500 a ton  for tho metal, the price in England  being somewhere about $285 a' ton,  while in America the price is even  lowef. The bulk of the copper comes  smuggled into Germany from professedly neutral countries, whither it  is carried by skippers armed with  false bills of lading and faked manifests.-      ������������������ ���������������������������   -   ;:       ���������  They Stuck to"      I High Prices  Dying Officer and Blind Pilot in Aeroplane Thwart, Enemy's Designs  The heroism displayed by a dving  army aviator ancl his blind pilot in  thwarting the enemy forms one of the  most tragic incidents of the war.

Short Men  Have More Staying Powers  Speaking at the Hoyal Sanitary Institute, London. Dr. Pembrey contended that the mere -measurement of legs  and weight as a qualification for national service had had its little day.  It was weight of brain ancl proportions  of trunk that counted.' The short or  average man had more endurance,  more pugnacity, more responsive power than the average tall man. Quickness of response came from the shorter length of nerve; there was more  concentration of hear', power. Highlanders were not fall men, as waf:  commonly supposed: The Gordons  averaged in height not more than 5  ft. iV-z in. Even statistics of the present war showed that "fine men do not  resist disease and wounds," so effectually as the shorter .or more compact men.

The',  cheques contained in ��������� the record  above referred to show that Mr.- Foster acted as the purchasing agent and  that he made purchases through middlemen chosen from among his own  friends. Mr. Foster issued- the gov- ;  eminent-cheques- to these men upon /"  the prices, which tkey. charged. -Four  hundred and twenty-eight horses'in  all we're purchased; most of them ia  the constituencies of Mr. Foster  himself, of A.

Thgy cost the government  $77,994, or an . average price of  $184.50.  -Tho    cheques, were  signed  by Mr.  Foster and J. F. Ward, a veterinary:  Cheques were issued to W .P.

Woods worth-of Halifax, for  $21,784,   and     to     Walter Moore    of  Kentville, M.S., for $3,500.  In other words, Mr. Foster was appointed lo purchase from the farmers -  for the government, but he appointed'  four "of- his friends to do the purchasing' and issued "the-government  cheques, not for the 'prices paid to  the farmers, but for the prices chari-  by   his  self-appointed ' purchasers.

The price paid by the government  to Mr. Foster's purchasers was  $184.50, which is ten dollars a horse  higher than ,the highest,, average  price paid'elsewhere,! and $34 a horse  higher than; the lowest average. It  is easy to see, therefore, how Mr.  Foster purchased the horses "without���������  remuneration."

Duke   of   Connaught   and    Mr.    Guild  Give  Views to  Ottawa  Audience  A feature of a recent meeting of  the Canadian club at Ottawa,-when  Hon. Curtis Guild of Boston, former  United States ambassador to Russia,  spoke,- were a few personal sidelights  upon,'-'the .13mperor of Russia, by his  near.'r.elative, His Royal Highness the  Duke.fOf Connaught.  The-Duke referred to two visits he  had made to Russia, .stating that" he  had been impressed by the solidarity  of- her people, and spoke with great  affection of the Czar. - He described  him as a simple-minded, lovable man,  possessed of attributes which, would  appeal to Canadians, and expK.sscd  the view that the war Avould cemsnt  together the Russian  empire.  The Hon. Mr. Guild, in his address,  declared that Great Britain had never  acted more wisely than when she  abandoned her historic policy of  hostility to Russia and made a  friendly union in the common cause  of civilization in the Far East. He  traced the marked moral and material- progress of modern Russia, made  light of the so-called Slav peril, and  proclaimed the undivided loyalty of  the people to their ruler He praised  Russian efforts in advancing civilization, and said the emblem of the  country was no longer the bear, suggestive of barbarism, but the eagle,  emblematic of peace and progress.  A pleasing event was' the presentation to Mr. Guild of a cigar case  bearing his monogram by the officers of the 43rd Regiment of Ottawa.  It was in recognition of courtesies  extended to the corps when it visited  Boston some years ago, when Mr.  Guild was governor of Massachusetts.      ������������������  Future   King   Hands   Around   His   Tobacco Pouch to Men  Reports from the front state that  lhe Prince of Wales-is continually in  tho trenches amongst the Tommies,  with whom he does not hesitate to  share lhe contents of his tobacco  pouch.

Prince  (leorge, as he wns then, was veiy  fond of seeing, and never missed an  opportunity of taking the gunroom  officers away on a seining excursion.

Everything was ready, and the party  only waited for the Prince, when the  .coxwain of the cutter went running  up the accommodation ladder evidently with the intention" of going inboard; at the top of the ladder he ran  into the Prince, just coining out.  "Hullo."- said the future king,  "where are you going?" ".lust to get  my pipe and baccy, sir," replied the  petty officer. "Oh, we can't wait for  that now," replied Prince .George,  "everybody is ready." Then seeing the  lool'c of disappointment on the man's  face, he put his hand in his pocket  and pulled out his cigar case, with,  "Help yourself out or this."

The subject of  this paragraph is not, however, to be  dismissed as a superficial man. Risking lose ma:c8te, he is the most gifted anachronism of the 20th century.  ���������From   Collier's   Weekly.

Kellogg's Asthma Remedy bring  prompt relief, but it introduces a new  era of life for the afflicted. Systematic  inhaling of smoke or flumes from the  remedy prevents re-attacks and often  effects a permanent cure.  The late Sir William Eden was the  holder of two baronetcies. One of  them is usually described as that of  '���������'Eden of Maryland, U.S.A." The  baronetcy was created in December,  1770, some five months after the  American Declaration of Independence. Thus though now styled "of  Maryland, U.S.A." it was at first  tantamount to a declaration that  Maryland remained a British colony  and. that the U.S.A. did not exist!  Minard's  ralgia.

Owing to the lack of fodder, tho  number of pigs and milch cows are  to be reduced; the pig. it is complained, is the greatest food competitor of man.  Only 2,000,000 cows need be got  rid of, but lhe pigs must be decreased  bv 9,000,000.

His government will  be torpedoed with ballots in  the next election.  Thf fact-should not be lost  sight of that a large number  of self-styled "live wires" come  from towns which they have  ���������assisted in interning in oblivion. Kverv man has his own  ideas of how to build a city-;-  but the only successful method yet discovered is for you to  do some of the' buildingj'your-  self.  In spite of the fact that  politics are supposed not to  enter into the military preparations of the country, ancl the  further fact that Liberals and  Conservatives are daily falling  side by side on the field of  honor, some of the small:-  souled Tory papers of the interior of this province are  printing stock cartoons imputing disloyalty to the opposition at Ottawa and the Liberal  of   the   country. .

The  correspondent gathers that his  mission has not been very successful as regards financing  of certain British Columbia  - securities, as the feeling is tuat  the province has assumed  rather more than it is capable  of carrying through." Sir  Richard should come home at  once. He is giving'British  Columbia unenviable publicity  abroad.

"Type was made to read " This  fact i.s constantly kept in mind at  Tbe Sun Print Shop.  The Sun, at SI a year, is superior  to any $2 a year paper printed iu the  Boundary. This is the reason why  we do not have to resort to gambling  schemes to gain new subscribers or to  hold those we already have.  The Sun is the' largest and best  newspaper printed in the Boundary  country, and the price is only one-  half that of its.local contemporaries.  It is a valuable advertising medium,  because its- large subscription list  has been obtained, and is maintained, merely on its merits as a  newspaper. It uses no indirect or  questionable methods to secure sub-  sccribers.  The weekly market will be held  on Second strpet, between Bridge  street and Winnipeg avenue, tomorrow forenoon.

The man who is in pursuit of success should carry no  excess   baggage.  A cow recently walked into a village bank in Ohio. She probably  wanted to have her milk certified.  Many a man who imagines himself  capable of ruling a nation can't even  keep his own children out of mischief.

War Destroys Trade  Germany Eliminated in a Commercial  Sense   by  tho   War  Germany, by her dastardly conduct  towards   Belgium   and   the   part  she  played in bringing on  the  European  war,   destroyed  in " one    fell  swoop  the  results of her policy of "peaceful penetration," which was meaning  the gradual commercial-absorption of  Belgium    and    other"small European  slates-  This was the forceful contention of  ' Sir   George   IS.   Foster,   Minister   of  Trade and Commerce, who delivered  an" address on "War and Commerce"  before  the members    of tlie Empire  club at Toronto recently.  The speaker    disclaimed    the idea  - that war is a generator of- trade,- affirming that in the last analysis trade  -is destroyed by armed conflict.  -  Sir  George reminded  his  audience,  how'* war called a halt    to trade last  August, and how Germany was then  eliminated   in- a   commercial   sense,  ancl will bo so far as the present generation   is     concerned.     "Germany's  fine art system was destroyed by her  own  hand,"    he declared.    "Do  you  -'think that  when   peace is  declared  she will be invited ^o the banqueting  hall?"   (A. voice:  "Never).    "No, she  will be allowed to oily pick up the  crumbs  of  humiliatioi.    By   her destruction- of   Belgium nnd   the   performance  of appalling atrocities she  has forfeited her geyd' name forever.

Evidence Given by - Powell in  Field Dressings Inquiry  The supply of field dressings, etc,  to the expeditionary forces by Ernest  Powell, of Ottawa, employed as clerk  in the Carleton Drug Co., of which  William P. Garland, M.P. for Carlelon,  is the principal owner, was the subject of an inquiry in the public accounts committee at Ottawa.     /  The witness Powell at first declared  that when supplying-goods to the department" of militia he had not discussed prices with air. Garland. Afterward he admitted hc'.liad done so. The  government orders amounted to somewhat over $-10,000, and his profit was  about $9,000. Powell, declared that  the money is to his credit, that he has  to account to no one for it, and that  the Carleton Drug Company or Mr.  Garland, M.P., is net int rested in it.  He is still working at the drug store,  and -has not yet^passea his examination in pharmacy. Tlie transactions,  ha maintains,'Avere wholly "on the  side"  from his  regular occupation.  Mr. German aske'l if tlie invoices  from Bauer and Black, the manufacturers, corresponded with what was  charged the department, and he  stated that'they"did "in some cases  and- in others- not." He had checked  over the invoices alone, witness said,  No one was with him.  "Who  made  out  the  prices  to  bo  charged   the  government?-'���������"I   did."  "Any one help you?"���������"No"."  "And you did this even;though you  had had no experience in buying and  selling such' goods?"���������"Yes."-  To   tho  invoices  as  received,    the  witness  said he  added what he considered lo be a fair margin.  "I see an item hei'Cwhich cost you  ?6, and you charged $5.30. Was that  a fair margin?"���������"I charged more at  first, and when the department objected, I reduced the price."  "To a figure below what you paid?"  ���������"Yes."  "Who 'assisted' you in making out  the prices?"���������"No one."  "Did vou show them to anyone?"���������  "No."    " ���������������  After being subjected to much examination, the witness varied his  previous testimony, and admitted that  he had discussed the prices of. some  of the goods with Mr. Garland, but  not all of them. He had deposited  the cheques of the government in his  own account at the Union Bank."  "About how much is to your credit  after tha goods are all paid for?-'���������������  "About $6,000."  "Does that represent your profit?"  ���������"Yes."  "What was the total amount of  (he proceeds from your government  contract?"���������"Over forty thousand  dollars."

"No."  Under further examination the witness said he got something better  than $15 a week for working in the  drug store. Since getting the government contract his hours were the  same, but he insisted that this contract business was apart from his  engagement in Mr. Garland's drug  store. '  "Did you expect to set remuneration from Mr. Garland?" asked Mr.  Proulx?"���������"No."  Examined by Mr. Martin of, Regina, Powell said he did not get all  the supplies from Bauer and Black,  but some were secured at local stores  in Ottawa.

G  w  FORMALDEHYDE TREATMENT FOR SMUTTED GRAIN  All the-Raw Material Used in its Manufacture is Found in Canada  ���������Farmers Should Use it More Generally, ^s it is the Best  Preparation with which to Treat Seed Grain.  There is every spring a greatly increasing market for. the greatest disinfectant ever discovered���������formalde-  "Jiycle. Not only does this meet with  use in the hospitals, but-also in farming,-although this latter, is hot'so well  known. Farmers all over the country  ���������west and east���������are making preparations to treat their seed against what  Is commonly known as smut. Few  farmers indeed, really plan to contribute to the $15,000,000 lost annually  through the altogether too prevalent  smutted grains; but there are .a great  number of farmers tot sufficiently  well posted .on the importance of  treated seed to realize the great ini-  por'tiyice of formalddliyde.  This disinfectant ��������� -is particularly-  adaptable to the .almost general use  throughout'the country, inasmuch as it  can be used with equal ease with either hard or soft water.- It suits  all grain .equally, well/'-thus having  a distinct advantage over tho more  commonly used-bluestone,- which has  little effect'upon smut in. oats. 'Formaldehyde is a Canadian product,  practically all of which used is manufactured here and tho supply, therefore is unaffected by. the war- Th3  war, however, has had a most welcome bearing on the market for this  gas, as Germany was the largest producer in Europe and the cutting off  of German supplies has increased the'  demand for th"- "Canadian article  abroad., .Demands which at present  Canadian manufacturers are- not attempting to supply, until all Canadian  contracts are fl'.ed, are heavy and  when Canada does commence to ship,  she will command very remunerative  prices. \ ���������  The raw material from which formaldehyde Is made is hard wood,  such as maple, beech, oak, and birch,  and of these wooda, there is no lack  of supply in this country. It is reported that one large concern which  manufactures this article, with headquarters locally, has secured the cutting rights five miles wide on each  side of one of the r.ew railroads running north through New Ontario for  over 350.miles. This will be used to  supply a mill .which they have erected  at the Canadiau Soo. i  '. A great deal of help to new settlers  has been extended in this province  where new lands have been opened  for settlement that are heavily wooded, and it is here that the makers of  formaldehyde' have made it possible  for them to cut the haul wood during  the winter, over a period of/ years,  thus supplying them with a cash income from the start.  Most interesting is the manufacture  of this article. It is made from refined wood alcohol. That it is .without  /  s  its patriotic properties is not true, as  thousands of tons of what were once  the stately forest trees of Canada,  are daily assisting ' 1 the work of destruction at the Dardanelles and Europe, for all tlie acetone manufactured  in Canada is sold direct to the British  government ancl tho demand is very  excellent- at the 'moment. Acetone is  a by-product of formaldehyde, in process of manufacture.  From refined alcchpl, formaldehyde  is obtained by a further process of  heating-the alcohoiand passing ihe j  fumes' through red-hot copepr mesli '  and drawing off the gas into waier.  The . formaldehyde -of commerce,  which is so widely sold for treating  seed .is 40 per cent, strength.  From time to time come complaints  from farmers that the formaldehyde  has killed, their seed-snd from others  that the formaldehyde has failed to  kill the smut- An investigation has  almost invariably revealed the fact  that these farmers have . purchased  formaldehyde put up in' barrels.  ��������� It needs to be kept moderately  warm and if the barrels are kept too  cold or .'are subjected to cold when  being hauled" from the' stations, the  formaldehyde will polymerize or become thick and drop to the bottom  of the barrel. The barrels are tapped  from the bottom so the man wlio gets  the first out of the .barrel has formaldehyde overstrength and the man'  who gets the last has little but water.  If formaldehyde is purchased from  barrels it is ver,' essential to make  certain that it is kept well shaken up  and has not been subjected to too  much cold. If it runs at all thick and  looks ��������� in the least milky it is too  strong. It should be as clear as water.  George H. Clark, seed commissioner  for Canada, urges that farmers demand their formaldehyde in bottles or  stone jugs of 1,-3 and 5 pounds. In this  way they can easily shake it vigorously before using and make certain  that it is'properly mixed.  Formaldehyde stould never be carried in metal cards'or pails-as the  metal affects it-to some extent.-  ' This ye?r the makers and shippers  of formaldehyde are receiving material help from the railways. Formaldehyde has always been shipped in heated cars, where it was a carlot order,  but this season the railways are shipping heated cars as "'way freight."  Thus a car of formaldehyde will be  delivered, so many barrels, bottles "or  jugs, at almost every small station  along a given line. This moans that  the local, dealer is receiving his supplies under perfect conditions and the  farmer, if he sticks to the bottles and  jugs, will get his the same way-���������  Journal of Commerce.  Improved Methods to Assist in the Increase of Production  It is told of a pioneer in the North  West that being on his deathbed he  said to his eldest born,- "My son, I am  going to give you- a new farm."  "Where, father?" was the natural response. "Plough two or three inches  deeper.". As an exemplification of  the richness of our country this story  is worth repeating. It indicates^ the  marvelous nature of our agricultural I  resources and encourages to.greater  efforts- The object of the Patriotism  and Production Campaign now in progress is not so much to teach practical men their business, as to give  them the experience of other practical men, of specialists in different  branches of larming, and to imbue  them with the idea that there may  yet be profits to be found in directions that in their wisdom they may  not have yet discovered, or have  overlooked. Then .there is a duty  that at this juncture, when the whole  empire, is fighting for its life, calls  upon us all to extort ourselves mi ore  and more, no matter how earnestly  wc have labored in the past, and to'  try with might and main, to do even  bttter. It' ,is impossible to understand how, when the mother of great  nations' is -putting forth -all her  strength to fight off the enemy, her  children, either in their unit or in  their collective capacity, can rest  content with the fortune that is theirs  arid ignoring, criticising or condemning the exertions of those who at  best are trying to serve them, dwell  upon their own troubles and refuse  even to treat with consideration the  work of men who have but a single  aim���������the improvement, which must'  mean the increase of production.  Wise men accept counsel come  whence it may, and act on it, or reject it, as seemeth to them best. The  department of agriculture at, Ottawa  has not only been promoting meetings or conferences of those interested in the special branch of the  country's interests entrusted to it, but  it has had prepared treatises 'by experienced and practical men, founded  on experiments which must contain  both enlightment and encouragement,  and which can be had for the mere  expense of asking.

The British Water -Wagon  Putting OH the  Lid, Make Children Hate War  The  Economic Push  Behind  the  Prohibition  Movement  The prohibition wave .is sweeping  over the country. It rises highest in  the States where public sentiment,  used to be most inhospitable. It has'  all but overflown the South famous  for cheer and good fellowship! It is  breaking over the, far west, .where  personal liberty .and self-indulgence  have ��������� been almost .matters of creed.  , The irresistible iush behind the  wave is economic. The organization  of business and industry, having realized the eternal truth .that self-indulgence saps human force and lowers efficiency, brings its powerful influence to bear.- Tfce instinct ot the  higher intelligence that self-denial is  the inspiration of achievement has expanded to kind compulsion for the  lower. More and more personal liberty for self is-being sacrificed to uplifting restraint for olherc.  The dark oppression of a labor  body of low will power and strong  passions has brought prohibition to,  the South, to raise the standard of  performance and Jieck the excesses  of appetite. Its spiritual force is  . succeeding, where the., brutal vengeance of lynch law' and convict  labor failed.  The organization of tha mineral  wealth of the West into industry has  brought home the economic value of  prohibition there. Colorado ancl Arizona have put it into law, Montana  and Idaho are likely to do so, while  Utah is stopped temporarily by tlie  governor's veto. Loss of self-control  and efficiency spells danger to life  and property in minings as plainly as  in Southern planting.

Ns  FOURTH  TIME   PRUSSIA   MADE   WAR ON EUROPE  Great Britain's Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey, in a Recent  Speech, Reviews the Issues Leading up to the  War, and  Foretells the Extinction of German Militarism  Sir Edward Grey, the foreign secretary in a speech delivered to a London, audience, reviewed the European  issues leading up to the present war  and-made plain the determination of  Great Britain and her allies to insist  upon the extinction of German- militarism, us well as upon the right of  the smaller nations of Europe to  their untramelled- independence.  Speaking of the origin of the war  Sir Edward Grey emphasized the fact  that the struggle might have been  avoided by an European conference.  Germany, he added, judging from her  experience of the Balkan, conference,  knew she could have counted.upon  the goodwill of Great Britain. But, he  said, Germany refused every suggestion of a conference, and on her, rests  for all time, the appallin;; responsibility for the war. Sir Edward Grey affirmed, amid loud cheers, that this  was the fourth time within living  memory that Prussia had made war  upon Europe, "and. we are determined  that it shall be the last."  ���������  The foreign secretary, added that it  wotfld have been far easier to settle  the dispute between Austria and .Serbia, which "Germany' had made the occasion of this war, than it had.been  successfully to get through the Balkan eusis. Germany knew that Great  Britain then sought no diplomatic  triumph. We did not give'ourselves  to any intrigue; we pursued impartially and honorably the end of peace.  We were ready last July to do the  same again. We had given in recent  years to Germany every assurance  that no aggression upon her would  receive any support from-us. We had  withheld from her but one, thing,  namely, an unconditional premise to  stand aside however aggressive Germany might be to our neighbors.  France, Italy and Russia were ready  in July to accept a conference. We  knew that after the British proposals  for a conference had been made the  Czar himself proposed to the Kaiser  that- the dispute should be referred  to The Hague. tribunal. "We know  now that the German government  has prepared for war as only a people who planned could ; .-epare."  Sir Edward, continuing," said that  long before the war he had given Belgium a pledge that never would Great  Britain violate the neutrality of that  country so long- as it was respected  by others, and that if Germany invaded Belgium .we were bound to op  pose Germany with all cur strength.  If we-had not' done so at the first  moment, was there aifyone now. who  believed that when Germany attacked  Belgium, shot non-combatants, ravaged the country and violated all 'the  laws of war and all the rules of  humanity, was there anyone who  thought it possible now that we  could have sat still and looked on  without eternal disgrace'.'  ' "In due time terras of peace, will be  put forward'by the Allies," continued  the foreign secretary. "An essential  condition must 'le the restoration to  Belgium of her independent national .  life and free possession of her territory. The great issue is this: Wo  wish the nations of Europe to bo  h-ee to live their independent lives,  working out their own form of government and their own form of. national development in full liberty,  -whether they be great slates or  small.   That is our'ideal.  "The German ideal is that the  Germans are a superior people, to  whom -all things are lawful - and  against whom resistance, is unlawful  and must bo put down, that they  must establish domination over the  nations of the continent and that all  must be subservient to Germany.  "I would rather perish or leave  the continent altogether than live in  it "under such conditions. After this  war we and the other nations of Europe must be free to live without the*  interference of the superior -war lord;  without the clang of armor and the  sword continually rattled in , the  scabbard, Heaven continually invoked, and without our policy being dictated by the military domination of  Prussian.  "We claim fo. ourselves and together with our allies, we will secure  that right to live and pursue our  national existence, notin the shadow  of Prussian supremacy, but in the  light of equal liberty."  Sir   Edward   Grey     concluded   by  paying eloquent tribuce^lo the splendid courage and patriotism of Great  Britain's allies.    There was. he said,  no    nobler  opportunity    of    serving '  one's   country   than "when   its  exist-,  ence was    at stake,*  when its cause  was just and right. Never was there  a time in our national history when  the  crisis  was  so  great and so im-     (  perative   and  the   cause  itself  more  just and right. (Loud cheers).  '. Banker and Farmer  A Strong Plea Made For a Better Understanding .  .'Why is there not a better 'understanding between agriculture ami finance, between farmer and banker? it  is commonly kn>own that a very snia :  percentage of the credit secured ..uy  the farmers is obtained from the local  bank. The fanner secures his'credit  from the local merchant; implement  agdnt or lumberman, these, retail-men  in turn get their credit from the  wholesaler and manufacturer, and  they from the, banker. . For real  money the farmer goes to the Joan  company. This is ail common knowledge. Why .-should, it-be thus? With  the banks represented in every small  .town through the country, it would be  supposed that a large part of their  business would be to handle farmers'  accounts, and they do handle some,  but on the whole, tne farmer and  banker are entirely, out of sympathy  with one another  ,'. The high rate. oZ interest charged,  and the extreme cautiou with which  credit has been given has been the  cause of the farinas' unfriendly attitude. This attitude has. been warranted, undoubtedly, in some cases,  but not always. The farmers as wall  as other classes have tried to become  wealthy by buying and borrowing, and  the bankers have done well to be  chary in advancing credit in a good  many places. Even as it is thoy have  a neat percentage of bad accounts. In  many a case it would have been wis ;  to have heeded the warning of the  bank that credit had been drawn to  the limit, and have retrenched instead  of obtaining it through other sources.  Had the farmer i-.nct banker known  each other better the buying ancl borrowing game would not have been carried so far. In this connection the  banks and bankers must shoulder  much of the blame. Too often the  local managers do not know agriculture, and consequently do not get in  close touch with the farmers of the  district and know their financial  standing. There has also been a tendency to change branch ba.ik managers  iu tlie country so frequently that they  have not time to know tiic farmers or  their standing. The result has been  the farmers, outside of the few leaders in the community, look to tlie retail men of the town for their credit,  and have bsen encouraged to extend it  beyond all reason, and to that point  where the lean crop of last year left  the farmer with his assets turned to  liabilities, in too many cases.  We cannot go back ancl correct mistakes made in boom years. In any  case, the credit must be curtailed,  but the bankers must revise their  system, lo that extent that their  branch managers come more closely  in touch and .sympathy with farmers,  and they must cheapen their methods  of handling money that a more reasonable rate of interest can be givea  on lo.-.ns. We do not suggest an alternative if this is not done, but the  move in Saskatchewan towards a cooperative system of loans and the establishment of an agricultural bank  indicates that the farmers are in earnest in their demana for better terms  of credit.���������Farmers' Advocate, Winnipeg, -Man.  May Have a Fuller Participation in  Imperial Affairs Than Heretofore  What will be the status of��������� India  in the British empire after the war.  Even in the press of instant needs,  that question must cross the minds'"  of thoughtful British statesmen,- but  it is doubtful if the most farseeing  among them can give it anything like  a full or certain answer. Only one  things is sure: India wLl claim and  receive a larger measure of self-government and fuller participation in  imperial affairs than she has had before.  The loyalty of India has been one of  the great* surprise.-: of the war. Instead of bursting into a flame of revolution the moment Britain was involved in Europe, India hac coma  forward with voluntary offerings of  money aud troops, suspended all agitation for political changes until after the war, turned a deaf ear to the  persuasions of Kaiser and Sultan.  Silhs and Gurkhas arc on the firing  line in France; native princes have  offered their personal services in tho  field.  Provinces and principalities which  proved their value in this fashion in,  time of war cannot be relegated to  the status of lesser breeds without  the law in time of peace. But what  other status can thoy assume? Can  India be trusted . with self-government like that which prevails in Canada and Australia? Can Europeans  and Asiatics henceforth work side by  side, instead of tair.Icm, as hitherto?  Will the islanders who developed  modern constitutional government  and the Orientaln who have bowed to  tlie personal sway of foreign masters  for centuries find that, after all, they  have a common ideal in tlie empire?  ���������Chicago Journal.
