C, FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1916  $1.00 PER YEAtt  Mayor Acres and   Aid. Donaldson J  McArdle, McCallum,    Schnitter and  Sheads   were  present.. %t":the-regular'  meeting of the city council  on   Monday evening. ;  Win. Dinsrnore addressed the council, and asked that the fees for  traders' licenses be readjusted. He  thought chat- the big merchants should  ;pay.a higher license than the stoa'l  ^tradesmen. . The,-mayor stated that  ���������the matter had been considered by  license commissioners' and would.come  ;before the council during the.evening.  A letter from the commanding  .officer of the 225th battalion, at Fernie, thanked the council for the ap-  p opriation made at the last meeting  of 850 per month for four months in  aid of. recruiting. Jt was ordered  filed.  An application from D. Woodhead  for the position of poundmaster was  accepted under the provisions of ��������� the  pound bylaw.  A petition f. r city water and   light  was   received   from   Elarvey  Hanson  and  others, in   the   West end.    The  . chairman of the water and light com-  ��������� mittee recommended   that petitioners'  request for water be held in abeyance  at  [resent,   as   the  city was short of  pipe.    Regarding the extension of the  ���������-, lighting-system, he   favored  granting  the applicants' petition as soon as four  of   them   showed their good   faith by  .having their houses wired.   The council approved his recommendation.  The chairman of the- finance committee reported that the license com  missioners had recommended that th*  traders' license 1 ylaw be amended so  a> to raise the license of autos  kept hire fr m $2 50 to ������5 for  every six .months', and that livery  stable licenses-be lowered-from SlO to  . .$5 half yearly.     Adopted  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that Mr.  Jap had decided that he did not want  city water at present Herecoiiimended  that the contract for extending the  water system to W. J. Galipeau's  property in the Van Ness addition be  given to Mr. Galipeau, he being the  lowest tenderer, and that the contract  covering the work be ratified. The  charges for thawing out water pipes  last winter had been a thorn in the  side of ratepayers for some time, as  it was difficult to determine, in many  instances whether the freeze, up had  occurred on city or private property,  and he recommended that a'i fees fur  this service be rebated, those who had  already paid to be credited the  amount on water rates.     Adopted.  The chair/nan of the board of works  reported that Dr. Kingston had apparently given up the idea of having  a cement-sidewalk built in front of  the Grand Forks hospital this year,  and the old walk would oe repaired.  He wanted the street sprinkling district defined, and Was informed that! ||oor  it embraced Pledge, First aud Second j  Mr.' McDonald' to the Old Men's  Home at Kamloops. The tent on the  corner of Bridge and Sacond streets  had been removed; the city had ono  charity case at pre.-ont; the hit next  tlie opera house was in an unsanitary  condition. The report was accepted,  and the question of sending the two  aged men to the Old Men's [Tome-was  left in the hands of the committee,  with power to act. '  The parks committee recommended  giving a bonus, divided into three-or  four prizes, for the best kept lawns.  The matter vvus left in "the hands of  the committee, with power to act.  ��������� L commnnication from VV. O. Miller, superintendent of the Boundary  division of ..the, C. P. R., stated that  the repair."of the sidewalk on Third  street, near the union depot, would be  attended1 to as soon as possible. -  The appointment of a city scayeu  gerwas referred to the health and re  lief committee, with power to act.  Aid. Sheads was granted leave to  introduce a rate and tax levy bylaw,  which was advanced to the third-  reading stage. Tiie bylaw provides  for a tax levy of 15^ mills for special  purposes, b\ mills for schools, and 9  mills for general, total. 30 mills.  Aid. Sheads was granted leave to  iutrodnce a tax rebate bylaw, which  was advanced to the third reading  stags. The bylaw provides for the  rebate of one sixth of the current  year's taxes if paid on or before the  23rd of August next.  Aid. Sheads gave notice that at the  next meetiug he would ask leave to  introduce a traders' license-.bylaw.  Aid. McArdle cave notice that at  the next meeting he would ask leave  to introduce a'milk vendors' bylaw  ffl.

The  fire had apparently started in the  middle of the building, beneath the j  Its origin is.unknown.  Fire "department,' of Vicroria day  proved even a greater success than  had been anticipated from the most  optimistic predictions. It was a  success from a financial standpoint,  as well as in affording the citizens a  day of real enjoyment. The weather was ideal,and the people took advantage of this fact by turning out  en masse. The firemen arc to be  congratulatt d on the able managed  the celebration. From the vast  crowds of naidents and outside visitors not a disgruntled voice was  heard.  It is estimated that Republic,  Danville, Curlew'and other American towns contributed between three  and four hundred visitors. From  this side of the line Phoenix, Green  wood and Midway were weli represented.  . The. Republic and Grand Forks  brass bands furnished spirited music  of a superior quality during the  day. 'This'was the first occasion on  which the citizens have had an opportunity to hear the local band  under the present instructor, and  they were agreeably surprised. The  band has arrived at a high stage of  efficiency.

The attendance at the race track  in the afternoon to witness the  games and races was the largest that  has ever assembled on the grounds.  Fully 1500 people were present. A  .are spectacle was that the grandstand was filled to its utmost capacity. The athletic sports were  keenly contested, and the races were  Johnson,  Stanaway,    Kuehue   and  Mann; Kuehne won,  Mann  second.  Consolation race���������Seven entries;  won by Ragsdale.

The final game between  Oanville and Phoenix was won by  D.inville by a score of 2 to 1. This  was one of. the best games seen on  the home grounds for many years.  The firemen's ball in the opera  in the evening brought the celebration to a successful conclusion. The  hall was filled to its full capacity,  and good music was furnish'-d by  Werner's orchestra.  Wedding  A quiet wedding took place on  Monday evening last at the residence of Edward Taylor, when his  daughter, Miss Luella, was married  by the Rev. M. D. McKee to Ar  thur Wilfred Pound. The young  couple are well known in this city  in religious work and social circles  and are highly respected in the  community. They carry the best  wishes of their many friends.  Six Months for Supplying  An Interdict With Liquor  John Benn was sentenced to 6ix  months in the Nelson jail at bard  labor by Judge Cochrane on Monday for supplying John Milkes^, an  interdicted man, with liquor, Benn  being convicted on  the hitter's  evi-  streets and Winnipeg avenue.

Alilkess,   while   in  jail   awaiting! allegations of confessedly disreputa  After some three weeks of probing  in the Vancouver police court and  by special committee of the legislature at Victoria, into alleged irregularities���������attempted- personation and  ''plugging" principally���������in connection with the late Vancouver by  election, the sincere seaacher after  the truth of the matter can only  gl-'an from the exhaustive and vol  uminous evidence elicited, that there  was a more or less organized ���������������������������'effort  to-poll illegal votes, and that the  unprincipled and disreputable agents  in this illicit work had apparently  considerable funds at their disposal  to procure, assemble, com ensaK  and transport their degraded insiru  meuts in violating the sanctity of  the people's ballot, says the Pacific  Canadian, of New Westminster.  Further than that, however���������into  the question of   prime    importance,  clearly connecting tbe nefarious  activities   of   tbe   agents and instruments referred to with the responsi  ble man or men  "higher  up"  who  gave the instructions and   furnished  the   money���������the investigations, judicial or legislative, so far, have not  managed to penetrate, beyond  mere  suggestion and glib generalities  by  some witnesses   whose  deportment  and record belied their sworn  word.  Indeed, it is no less remarkable than  significant   that,    both   in    the An  nance case, before the police  magis  trate in Vancouver, and the govern  en en t-engi r.eered select committee at  Victoria,  when it came lo the  point  where   the   Liberal   cross examiner  (Mr.   McTaggart   for   the    Liberal  prosecution in   Vancuvw, and Mr.  Brewster,   Liberal     leader,   in   the  legislative   inquiry     at     Victoria)  sougbt.to raise the veil   which  conceals   the   man or  organization behind the scenes, he.was met   ������i h a  straight refusal of  th-j star  wi^n ts  in each case���������Annance in tbe p> lice  (OUit, and the flippant and   garrulous Gosden (since arrested   :or per  jury) before  the   bouse  committee,  to give the information asked.   And  both were allowed to persist in their  refusal,notwithstanding Liberal protests.  In .the absence, so far, for the  reasons indicated, of any conclusive  result of the investigations, clearly  connecting the instigation of the  criminal practices charged with any  responsible public men of either  party, the public are left in the  meantime to tbeir own surmises  and inferences���������except that tho  government press is busy disseminating throughout the province such  distorted reports of tbe proceedings  of the inquiry as to convey the impression   that  the  glib and rrckless  trial for drunkenness while interdicted, escaped from jail but remained in the city and was re-arrested. Tuesday he had his  hearing before Judge Cochrane,  and was held for trial on a charge of  escaping from jail. This morning  his   case   came   up    before Judge  ble w tnesses are actually proved  charges fixing culpability, not only  upon the Liberal organization of  Vancouver in the recent by-election,  but upon the Liberal party of the  province as a whole.

Ueid of the  100th.   .'.'.,;���������  There is scarcely a bank t.liat has  not sent from 25 per cent.'to 50 per  cent.'of available men from the desk  or counter to the strenuous life of active service. No class of the community has done more than tlio bank-  'ors, and none have rendered more effective service -whether as officrs or in  '.he ranks.;  One bank in Winnipeg lias released  to the country's service every available.mart in: the office, and such is the  keen spirit displayed that in spite of  rejection on two ��������� previous .occasions,  two members of the bank have applied for enlistment a third time, hop- ;  ing now to be able to pass the medi-' Pu'������  cat examination. This is the sterling  spiiit that will win any iight.  Another Winnipeg bank has sent  fifty per cent, of ihe male staff, to the  War Welds Together  Britain and Colonies  it is observed, are handling their tin  accustomed duties well. .  One of the smaller banks has sent  no fewer than .120 men' to the front  and more are going. Another of the  banks���������one of the' largest and most  prosperous in the Dominion, reports  that '.'.0 per cent, of the entire male  staff throughout Canada, comprising  no less than 34 per cent, of those between the ages of 18 and 45, have enlisted for active service. No wonder  the remark has been made that the  enlistments of the Canadian banks are  unequalled by those of any other lino  '   of business in the country.  While infinite credit is due to those  who have thus shown a desire to actively serve their empire in the field,  no less credit is due to the directors^,  and managers of the banks, who by  precept and every practical form -.A  'encouragement, have made it possible  for so many of their staff to take up  military duties, in no ,case have the  officials failed to encourage in every  possible way those who expressed a  desire to enlist, that encouragement  frequently taking the form of substantial financial provision raid, in prac-  ���������.icaliy every case, the promise of reinstatement in. positions upon return  from active service. A great deal of  credit attaches also to those who  themselves, unable by ill-health,  old age and other circumstances,  to help . in . ihe great struggle,  have shouldered a heavy burden of  work and responsibility and by cheerfully accepting the additional duties  calling upon them, have also done  their share in the great task now at  hand.  In a newspaper account of the recent annual meeting of the Canadian  Hank of Commerce, the general manager, Mr. John Aird, is quoted as expressing the patriotic spirit animating  the banking officials of Canada. He  said: "We have made many sacrifices  in order to allow officers to take up  military duty without delay, aud have  placed no restrictions in the way of  their doing so, although this policy  has resulted in our losing the services of those officers whose special  training made it difficult for us to  replace them. Twenty-five of our officers have already laid down their  lives on the battlefield and a further  50 lo 60 have appeared in the casualty  'lists. When the war is over it is our  intention to erect a suitable tablet or  some other form of permanent memorial to these brave and loyal young  men. Wo have already communicated with the families of those who  have laid down their lives, and it only  remains to express in a general way  our respect at their loss and our appreciation of the fact that the members of thc staff of this bank arc made  of snch stuff that they can be counted  upon to do their duty no matter in  what form that duty may be presented to them."  One of the most distinguished bankers in tho British empire. Sir Frederick  William Taylor, of the Hank of Montreal, said the other day that he "would  rather be with his son lighting in  France than be general manager of all  t'n,: banks in Canada." His personal  Kecnncs. in thc fight has been pronounced since the first. To one of tho  staff who applied for loavc to enlist,  P,ir Frederick said: "I am proud (o  know that you have sufficient red  blood to want to go."  Major Iteid concluded his observations by remarking that tho Bankers'  Platoon of the lOOfh, was now an assured fuel, and such were (he number of enlistment ( and promises that  if. was quite possible a. second platoon  of a similar kind would later on be  formed.  Empire Must Decide Policy as a  Whole, For Empire as a Whole  Tho remodelling of the system of  ;jovernment of the British empire after the war, was predicted ' by Herbert L, Samuel, secretary for home affairs, at a dinner given in honor of  the Australian premier, William Morris Hughes, in London.  ''Many times in history/' said the  home secretary,, "have states not previously intimately united in their internal organization, been welded together by -war, 1 have Jong been convinced that the present constitution���������  or absence of constitution���������of thc empire cannot be the final form of our  political relations with one another  among the various portions of our em-  re.  "Thc  whole  empire is  affected  by  grave decisions of policy made by the  government   and parliament,   responsible not to the people of the whole  to the electors of these  'on  fifty per cent, of the male ���������stall, to the empjre   ]Dl,t   to the electors oL these  various battalions and it has become twQ is]'am|S.

It is for them to  decide whether, after the war, we shall  be able to take a forward step in the  evolution of our imperial institutions."  Premier Hughes' speech was devoted mainly to urging the necessity  of weeding out German influence- in  Great  Britain  and the colonies.  Molasses for Horses  Has a Tonical as Well as Food Value  for Domestic Animals  Molasses has a condimental value  which should be taken .into "consideration when compounding rations for  livestock. It is relished by both horses  and cattle when -fed in connection  with other feeds, and the increased  palatabality of the ration will increase,  consumption and ".stimulate digestion  and assimilation oi all the feeds contained in the rations  For horses, 'molasses has a peculiar value, often being prescribed by  veterinarians for .cases of chronic  cough or other diseases of the respiratory organs. The amount fed should  depend upon the other feeds being  used and the relative costs of nutrients contained in same. Horses have  ben fed as high as 15 pounds of molasses per day where this was a cheap  factor in the ration, but under ordinary conditions, from two to three  pounds per day should be considered  the maximum amount of this feed  which can be profitably used, and in  most cases a smaller allowance will  prove more economical.  The usual method of feeding to the  horses and cattle is to dilute with water and sprinkle over the forage; used  in this way a small quantity of forage  is made more palatable, and will be  consumed more closely and profitably.  For hogs even a small quantity o_  molasses mixed in the slop will increase the palatability ot the feed to  a marked degree.  Aside from its use as an appetizer  and condiment, tho amount of molasses used in the. ration should de- -  pend upon its relative cost as compared with other feeds, it having a  food value approximating that of.  corn, as indicated by chemical analysis.  Under a House Shelled With Shrapnel  Thc    following letter has been received in Dublin from a driver in the  R.F.A.:  "I have received your welcome letter and P.O.'s. 1 am going on well.  I am iu a very dangerous position at  present, in fact, I'm in the most  dangerous position on the field. The  day before yesterday wc were in a  certain ruined house which the Germans wanted. They started throwing shells all round us; they threw  about twenty shells within a radius  ot thirty yards of us. We waited for  what was almost certain death. At  last a shell burst, and broke in the  front wall of the house. Luckily we  had a sort of dugout inside, or we  were done. It was the liveliest hour  [ ever had. When we came out after the bombardment, the place all  round was covered with bricks, mortar, and shrapnel. It would be a  Paradise for a jerry builder, plenty  of old brick ready to cart away."  The Vicar���������Hullo!    What's all Uiis?  Tommy���������The  funeral  of the  mote,  father.  The VicaT���������Hut I thought you buried  Mr. Mole last week'?

Care of Dairy; Cattle  Change   of   Feed   Does   Not Appear to  Affect  Percentage of Butter  Fat  The best dairy cows, as a rule, carry but little surplus Aesh, and consequently aro unable' to stand the exposure to cold as tile beef animals do,  so they must be warmly stabled to  give tho best results. If a large part  of the feed supplied to a dairy cow  lias to bo used for boat production  there is but a small amount available  for milk, production. It will probably  pay much better to beat very colld  .water, bringing it up to somewhere  near body temperature, by the use of  a rough, cheap fuel, than ,it will to  have the cow warm the water supplied her by .the consumption of valuable foodstuffs.  A. change of .teed makes no difference in'the per cent, of butter-fat  which the cow puts into l������;r milk..  The richness of the milk is the individuality of the cow, and you can't  change it by changing the feed. If  this could he done then people would  feed Holstein cows a ration so that  .they would give milk just as rich as  Jerseys and Guernseys. Different individuals of the same breed of cows  give milk of different richness. For  instance, two Jersey cows standing  side by side in the same barn and fed  the same ration, cared for in exactly  the same way, give different tests.  One of them will give 4.2 per cent,  milk, while the other will give 6.5 pet-  cent milk, so that feed, speaking generally, has-nothing to do with the test  It might be that if you would change  the feed from dry teed to corn silage  all at once that temporarily/-''-there  would be a change, and the cow would  give either richer or poorer"milk, but  if the change is made gradually there  would be no variation in the milk test.  But when Che cow is used to the com  silage rations and gets back to her  limit she showed the same percentage  of butter-fat that she  did  ordinarily.  German Bluster  When General Smuts, aged forty-  five, one of the conquerors of German  South-West Africa, has annexed German Bast Afriet the Huns will be  shorn of the last of their expensively-  made colonies. The German press  says that Germany will get them back,  and tbe Congo as well, in exchange  for Belgium. Well, Britain, France,  Russia, Italy, Canada and New Zealand, not to forget gallant little Belgium herself (and the Britsh fleet into the bargain), will have something  to say on that point. Just, now���������and  permanently, loo���������these German colonies are rid of their Prussian oppressors. We are iu possession, and,  everyone, except the Hun, i.s pleased  with the change. Sea power counts.���������  London Daily Mail.  Saw "Safety First "Film  C.P.R.

Sretton, Salop, England.  This good lady, the widow of a  soldier, has given no fewer than se*v-  euteen_sons to the army, of whom  [fourteen were actually on active service with the colors on September  15th, '.-1914, six weeks only after tlie  outbreak of the war.  Another patriotic mother, Mrs.  Jones of Kyverdalc Road, Stamford  Hill, gave her three triplet sons and  a fourth son to the army.  Then there is Mrs..Potter, a Portsmouth, "iDng., .-'widow, aged eighty-  three, who has been awarded a prize  locally for being the:head of the family with the most members in the  fighting services. Sixteen of her.  grandsons are in the army or the  navy, and the husbands of four of  of her granddaughters are on <j active  service, making twenty for her descendants altogether fighting for King  and country. In addition, two other  grandsons, now dead, were in the  navy.  His Debt to His Nation  There is no more reason to leave  the paying of his debt to his nation to  each man's conscience than there is in  .leaving, the paying of his debt to his  bank to each man's conscience. The  volunteer system is unsound both from  'the-.military.'and from the civic point  of.view. It is inevitably unjust and  demoralizing. It is unworkable, as the  failure of Lord Derby's moderate and  conciliatory plan has just proved  again in TCngland and in the midst of a  great -war. l^or the sake of American  youth and for the sake of the nation,  we ought to adopt universal compulsory military training and service now,  while peace permits us to do it deliberately, consciously, not as a hasty bitter necessity, but on principles of  democratic service, and unforced patriotic devotion.���������Chicago- Tribune.

NERVOUS DISEASES  JNTHE SPRING  Cured by Toning the Blood and  Strengthening the Nerves  It is the opinion of the best medical  authorities, after long ^observation,  that nervous diseases are more common and more serious in the spring  than" at any other timo of the year.  Vital changes in the system, after iong  winter months, may cause much more  trouble than the familiar spring "wealc-  ness and weariness from which most  people suffer as the result of indoor  life, iu poorly ventilated ' and often  overheated buildings. Official records  prove that in April and May neuralgia,  St. Vitus' dance, epilepsy and other  forms of nerve troubles are at their  worst, and that then, more than, any  other time, a blood-making, nerve-restoring tonic is needed.  The antiauated custom of taking  purgatives in the spring is useless, for  the system really needs strengthening,  while purgatives only gallop through  the bowels.- leaving you weaker. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are the best  medicine, for they actually make the  new, rich, red blood that .feeds the  starved nerves, and thus euro the  many forms of nervous disorders.  They cure also such other forms of  spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in the limbs, as well  as remove unsightly pimples and eruptions. In fact they unfailingly bring-  new health and strength to weak,  tired and depressed men, women and  children.  .

FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1910  ���������COMMENT -.ON.-CURRENT':EVENTS  Confirmation of John L.Sullivan's story last  week before the government's:; "investigation"  committee that leading Conservative candidates and officials of the Conservative association knew about the alleged pluggigg operations before election day, and did nothing to  interfere, was brought out before the committee Monday morning by no less a person than  F. W. Welsh, one of the candidates, who admitted the truth of Sullivan's statements. The  revelations of Mr. Welsh was astounding, not  only from the fact that he admitted having receiving advance information, but that one of  the rooming houses.where t������e gang congregated was upstairs over Welsh's London grocery  store on Granville street. Furtnermore, when  PL G. Brewster, the Liberal le?ider, asked for  the production of the letter informing Welsh  and others of the proposed scheme of frauc^u-  ent voting, and also of the wireless messages  Sullivan confessed to have sent, Welsh made  the startling statement that he had destroyed  them and, therefore, he could not produce  them for the further information of the committee. In light of the destruction of the let-"  ter, which was from Tom Carroll, a notorious  Seattle man, the committee will not have the  benefit of it in the investigation.and, too, Welsh's  mind was rather hazy as to the contents of  the letter. He wss positive, however, that  the 'etter di I not say that Carroll should be  direoiod by what Sullivan said, as to who they  should vote for. The committee will be able  to obtain copies of the Sullivan wireless mes  sages in spite of Welsh having destroyed   the:  Peter Annance, convicted by the action of  the Liberals of Vancouver of "irregularities"  in the late election, has joined the rest of "de  gang" in Victoria. Doubtless Mr. An nance  feels that he has been hardly dealt by the  "first law officer of the crown in British Columbia" not- interfering and preventing his case  from reaching such an extremity. Now if he  had been cited to appear before the election  committee of the legislature, with the  usual immunities from penalties and coachings as to his evidence, he might have been  saved a great deal of anxiety, much trouble,  and possibly some inconvenience.  One touch of fashion makes all women look  like freaks.  Americans need not despair, after all, over  this question of "preparedness."

He is a wise man who knows he is wise  enough to answer all the fool questions asked  him.  Speaking to a question of privilege in the  house on Tuesday, H. C. Brewster, leader of  Lite Liberal party, said that the Vancouver  N jv/s-Advertiser article of Sunday, referring  to M. A. Macdonald, was "an absolute tissue  ���������of falsehood, and when a paper had to go so  far afield to make up a falsehood out of whole  cloth it was time to draw it to the attention of  the public." Mr. Brewster said that had it referred to him he would pay no attention to it.  The article in question had said that Mr.  Brewster was being deluged with'letters frantically calling for the dismissal of M. A. Macdonald as president of the Provincial Liberal  association. Mr. Brewster said he had got  not one solitary letter of the sort.  By a frank confession of his part in the alleged plugging operations in the Vancouver  by-election, John L. Sullivan, proprietor of  the Irving hotel, before the special government investigation committee implicated prominent Conservative association officials. These  were F. W. Welsh, who is on the Vancouver  Conservative ticket, and who, it has been said,  is to be dropped from the ticket at the next  convention; C. E. Tisdall, Walter Leek, Joe  Hoskins, former alderman and a member of  the Conservative executive, and Victor Love,  secretary of the association. All these men  according to Sullivan, had advance information that alleged "pluggers" were on their way  toVancouver; did nothing to prevent the men's  operations, but permitted them to go unmolested, -making it appear as if the whole  scheme was a frame-up to besmirch the character of M. A. Macdonald in the event that he  defeated the Conservative candidate, C. E.  Tisdall, and if he did not, to let matters go  anyway.  Many a shallow remark is hacked up  by  a  deep voice.  From his point of view no man ever marries  a woman smarter than himself.  The statement on our contemporary's front  page heading that "Ralph Smith admits  crooked work by Liberals, but is hazy about  who supplied money," is just about as true as  the Forged Telegram purporting to come from  Mr. Borden which appeared in precisely the  same space under tlie same kind of heading on  the eve of an election here some years ago.  Our contemporary evidently is rehearsing for  another monstrosity later on. Well, practice  makes perfect, but not infrequently it lands  the practitioner in jail.���������Victoria Times.

One thing that emerges very  clearly from -the investigations is  that the Liberals as a party, who  initiated proceedings,'are evidently  sincerely desirous of getting to the  bottom of tbe whole husiness and  'fixing responsibility for'the disrepu  table performances, even if itshould  implicate alleged "woskers" in. the  Liberal interest. The evidence his  certainly showed that the Vancouver official campaign organization  sternly     discountenanced     alleged  tors of tbe present cancerous and  mental degenerate on the German  throne.  "First, there is the so-called  -Frederick the Great,, an insane ruler  and brutal monarch if. ever there  was one, 1740 1786. Next his  nephew, Frederick William II.,  1786-1797, a notorious evil-liver,  bigamist and debt-contractor Then  followed Frederick William IV.,  1840 1861., who became mad and  died childless, who was followed by  a daughter of his brother, who  married Maximilian II., king of  Bavaria, who had two sons, Ludwig  II (a cousin of the present emperor), who died insane, and the  o}her, King Otto of Bavaria, who  also died insane  "Then we have Frederick William  IV. succeeded- by his brother, VVil  liam I., 1861 [888, who--became  emperor in 1861, his queen being  a granddaughter (on her mother's  side) of Czar Paul I., who died insane. William I. was then succeeded by hie bod, Frederick III,  who died of cancer, and whose wife  was tbe eldest daughter of Queen  Victoria of England, and he in turn  was succeeded by the present madman, whom we know treated his  own mother so cruelly and shamefully, and who in his stupidity  and folly has sinct- sought to annihilate the very island home and  glorious kingdom from.-which his  noble mother was sprung.  "Here, sir, we have the true record of a grogeny indeed and of insanity; or diseased mentality from  which the kaiser has sprung; and  tbe unspeakable tragedy   of it all is.

A Strange Career  Irish Born, He Fought the British Till  the   Present  War  The London Standard publishes a  remarkable story sent by a correspondent "upon which rests the responsibility for its accuracy."  Oil Saturday the French government announced the death of Capt.  Jean Klebcr, killed in circumstances  providing a Jilting cud to a career full  of romance and tragedy. His real  name was known only to a small circle  of friends. He was the son of a weal;  thy Belfast merchant and received a  good education, graduating with honors at Trinity college, Dublin, and  studying in Germany. lie served some  years iu the Foreign Legion in North  Africa aud was one of the party accompanying Major March and on the  Fashoda mission..  Two years later he took service  with the Boers and went through the  whole of the war, subsequently es~  caping to France, after refusing to  surrender his commando under thp  terms of the Yereenigiiig treaty.  Two of his .est known achievements were the capture of Lord Me-  thune and the cutting up of Gen. Ga-  tacre's force at Slromberg.  After the Boer war "Kleber" returned to the French service, but the  belief in an imminent war between  Germany and Britaiu caused him to  seek service with the Kaiser's army.  His offer . was accepted but in 1911  the threat of a German attack on  France led to his retirement from the  German service. On the outbreak of  the present war "Kleber" rejoined, the  French army.

Catching Flies by Electricty  A new device for catching flies' is  being added to the equipment of a  number of botels in preparation for  the summer .eason. It consists of an  electric motor, which draws the flies  up by a strong current to a pipe. Molasses or moistened sugar is smeared  on the edges to draw them to the vicinity. As the flies alight upon the  pipe, a strong suction seizes them and  quickly drops them into a steel cage  in the bottom of the pipe. This machine has demonstrated an ability to  capture over a hundred flies a minute. It will clear a fly infested room  in a few minutes and can be easily  carried from one room to another and  operated from the plug supplying the  current for electric light.

Good Work in Keeping Turks Engaged  c~  The Caucasus theatre, while if has  ���������ecu some of tho hardest fighting' of  the war, has remained oue of the least  understood. Geographically it has  seemed remote '.from all the other  zones of major operations���������more in  the nature of a little war by itself. The  average layman when asked to locate  ihe region places it rather indefinitely  "somewhere in Western Asia."  The Caucasus for a great many  years has been-Russia's outpost from  .���������which gradually she'has.extended her  Influence over Northern Persia and the  potentially."'wealthy;, area -,;of Eastern  Asia Minor., The lofty mountains, on  the 'other haiul, have been Turkey's  bulwark against encroaching Muscovites, held with desperation against an  ever-increasing pressure from;, the  north.  The first effort, of the Ottoman  army when it was projected into the  ;war was directed through the Caucasus against Russia. A force based  on the fortified 'city of Erzerum sought  to clear tlie frontier and capture Kars,  the metropolis of the Russian coasted  district. The column: penetrated to  the very outskirts of Kars, and for a  few days there were rumors-of its  capture, but the Russians succeeded  In the end in not only retaining it but  driving back the Turks to the frontier  and beyond.  All of the first winter of the war  fighting of the utmost severity occurred in ths mountains, wiiere the  armies surged back and forth in' snowr  that at times reached a depth, of 20  feet. At least 200,000 men were engaged in a series of desperate conflicts that lasted until early in April,  when the Turks, with the battle a  stalemate, withdrew a good part of  their forces to meet the Anglo-French  demonstration against 'the Dardanelles. The German aud Austrian offensive, which was organized at the  same time and began May 1st with' the  battle, of Donajec, at the same time  saved the situation for the, Turks by  compelling the Russians to end their  activities in the Caucasus and concentrate every available man and gun in  Galicia just at a time when the weakening of the Turkish front might have!  permitted a decisive victory. -The  conditions of.-the great war as a whole  have prevented until.recently the resumption of the campaign with anything like adequate numbers and  equipment.  Simultaneously with the beginning  of the drive on the Arasa the Russians opened an active campaign on  the southern shpres of Lake Van and  increased their activity in Persia.  Perhaps no better illustration of the  spirit of co-operation that actuates  the allied war offices can be found  than this widespread attack on the  Turks. It will be noted that tho resumption of Russian activity against  tlie Porte came just at the time when  the Anglo-French pressure at the  Dardanelles w-as withdrawn. Far  from having an opportunity for i-est  ���������and recuperation after the struggle  on Gallipoli the Ottoman army was'  forced almost over night to prepare  to meet a strong and determined-offensive on its opposite frontier and  over a front, including three active  zones, o. more than three hundred  miles. This was Russia's contribution to the game of "worrying the  Turk."  What Canada Spends  Enormous Total of War Expenditures  For the Present Year  "The expenditure for war purposes in Canada will aggregate $600,-  000,000 within the present calendar  year," according to the estimate of  the March letter of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce.  This total exceeds anything  dreamed of when the work of making ammunition was undertaken in  this country. The letter adds: "The  output of ammunition, which at the  commencement of the present year  was valued at $:-!0,0()0,000 per month,  is steadily increasing as a result of  greater efficiency. That still heavier  demands will be made upon our industries is foreshadowed by the announcement that at the request ot  the government the banks aro preparing to provide a further credit  of from fifty to seventy-five millions  for imperial purposes. It is hoped  that this will result in bringing new  orders of at least $150,000,000 to this  country."  Popular Support Required  City Conveniences in Country Homes  Nowhere is  the luxury of a bath  . more  highly  appreciated  than   in  a  farm home, to which one comes covered with dust from a day in the fields.  ���������There is no more difficulty in providing for this luxury in a country  home than there is in the city.  A windmill, a gasoline engine or  electric power will put the water sup-,  ply under pressure, to be drawn at  will from taps inside the house.  Hard and soft water under pressure  In the home means, too, a saving of  etcps and time in the house and  avoids the exposure involved where  water cannot be obtained without go-  tag out of door*.  Importance of Independent Educational Work in Protecting Wild  "   :   Life   '  There is,no dearth in Canada of governmental agencies actively engaged  in conserving bird and animal life.  .'W.hile' the work is mainly in the hands  of* the provinces, several branches of (  the federal government are also rendering invaluable service. Unfortunately, popular support of official meas-  sures, which is the most potent sirigte  factor in insuring their success,' is  very much lacking. .The most serious obstacles and difficulties arise  from the lack of strong unofficial societies  to- carry on independent work.  ; The great advance of wild life protection in the United States, in recent  years, is due largely .'to the efforts of  such bodies as the American Game  Protective ,and Propagation association, the National Association of Audubon Societies, the Camp Fire club  and tlie American Bison Society, Similar organizations exist in Canada, and  the excellent work of the Canadian  Society for the Protection of Birds,  the" Independent Naturalists Association, the Dominion Game Protective  and Trap-Shooting Association and  others can not be too highly commended. But Canadian organizations, of  this character have failed to develop  their effort, and to utilize their opportunities to tlie extent which their field  of usefulness permits and invites. It  must be recognized that, while the in-  iative in'game law reforms may come  from public officials, the success of  practical measures: requires popular  support, which, in turn, must depend  upon persistent educational efforts.  The scope along these lines for independent societies is unlimited, and it  is to be hoped that, as the need for  better protection of wild life becomes  steadily more 'apparent, this brancn  of the work will be successful in enlisting the services of an increasing  number of active workers.  Hunt for Pirate's Treasure  Ill-gotten Loot Believed to be Planted  Off Coast of Labrador  Declaring that he has positve knowledge of a cache of treasures in thc  North Atlantic, near the Canadian  coast, Milton McMillan, wealthy "sailor of fortune," is preparing an expedition by sea to hunt i'or the gold. Associated with him are Captain Ward,  an aged navigator and two wealthy  citizens of Los Angeles.  Mr. McMillan, wiio, eight years ago  brought to the notice of some American scientists, the archeological value  of thc relics of San Nicholas island,  talks freely of the proposed treasure  hunt until he is interrogated regarding 'the exact location of thc island.  Then he is silent.  He says the gold aud jewels���������hidden by a'pirate chief, of course, a la  Stevenson���������is secreted on a mushroom: shaped island somewhere off the  coast of Labrador. His i'sxitb in the  idea that he will bring to light of the  20th century the horde of a pirate of  \ the 18th is'shown by his extensive  buying of supplies for the trip, which  will be. made via the Panama Canal.  He says this island is just one ledge  of birdseye porphyry looming out of  the deep, altitude 000 feet, :sr.O feet  long and 150 feet wide. ^The location  is safe for navigation near J.o the  island only two months out "of the  year, he says, because of the storms  which visit those latitudes.  / The sea captain, Ward, whose  grandfather roamed the deep in thc  early part of the 19th century, brought  the story of pirate wealth hidden in  thereof.-  Captain Ward says he got the word  from his grandfather, who in' turn receive;! it from his grandfather, that  one of the blood-thirsty robbers of the  sea who scuttled many a good ship  during colonial days hid his booty of  years on this island and then had to  sail away and tlie somewhere.  EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD DOING THEIR BIT  So Perfect is the Co-operation That Has Been Established Among  The Allies,'That They are Practically one Great Nation in Carrying on the War of Freedom  The Beer and Wine Fallacy  Pernicious Effects of Beer Drinking on  the  Health and Morals  Dr. Kress, third vice-president of  the American Medical Society for the  Study of Alcohol and other narcotics,  says: "The beer industry in the United States has practically developed  during the past sixty years. Previous  to that very little beer was sold. AVhis-  key, brandy and other spirituous liquors were used. The average consumption of alcohol was at that time  one and one-third gallons per head annually. -  The beer consumption has increased  by leaps and bounds. The breweries  now turn out over sixty-five million  barrels of beer annually. The annual  consumption of alcohol per capita in  the form of beer is over one and one-  half gallons. This means that now  there is more alcohol consumed per  capita in the form of beer than Avas  consumed sixty years ago in the form  of whiskey, brandy, beer and all other  alcoholic beverages combined.  This increase in the use of beer has  not resulted in a decrease of the  stronger drinks. We are now consuming per capita three gallons of alcohol  instead of one and one-third and that  in spite of the efforts to stop the Avhole  traffic. It is evident then that beer  has not made for temperance in America.  Beer is not a 'liquid food," or a  "health drink," as it is claimed. Indeed, pure whiskey with pure water  added to reduce it to four per cent, alcohol is less injurious than an equal  quantity of beer which contains four  per cent, alcohol and other injurious  substances. It is difficult to find a  heavy beer drinker forty years of age  with a normal heart, liver or kidneys.  These vital organs from thc excessive  burden that is put on them, wear out  prematurely. The beer drinker may  have an abundance of flesh but it is of  inferior qualify. Surgeons do not care  to operate on him because the chances  of recovery are minimized. Should the  beer drinker be taken down with  pneumonia or some other febrile disease that taxes (he heart and kidneys,  he would have but three chances out  of tea to recover. So much for the  physical ills of beer drinking.  Tlie bad moral effect produced by  habitual beer drinking is even more  .'narked It produces a moral gross-  r.oss and seems to destroy the finer  and nobler instincts. Dr. A. Forel of  the University of Zurich says: "One  needs only to study in Germany the  'beer joker,' beer conversation and  beer literature among the academic  youth of Germany; the drinking of  beer has killed the ideals and ethics  and has produced an incredible vulgarity."��������� h.

Industries      Suffering     Unnecessarily  Through the  Present Method  The following memorial to thc Dominion government was passed by the  Hamilton Recruitng League, March  7, 1916: ���������-.-.-  Whereas, this Dominion is engaged  in a war involving the very existence  of British institutions���������a war that call,  for the most rigid economy of men and  means���������a war. that can be successfully  concluded only by the fullest utilization of all our resources.  Whereas, under the present voluntary system there is great waste of the  nation's resources.  The Hamilton Piecruiting League  humbly begs the government of Canada to appoint a commission for fhe  purpose of:  (a)- Taking a census of all men in  the Dominion from 18 years of age and  upward, specifying those married and  unmarried.  (b) Classifying the men according  to their occupations or their fitness or  preference for certain kinds of work.  (c) Classifying the industries with  a view to the' restriction or the ultimate elimination of such as are nonessential" to the welfare of the country or are not economic factors.  (d) It- being understood that the  foregoing i. urged with a view to the  immediate application of some just  and comprehensive system of draft  whereby the men necessary to complete the Canadian Expeditionary  forces may be readily secured.  The Hamilton Recruiting League  has been a very active agency in the  enlistment of soldiers. It may fairly  claim a. share of the credit that is due  to Hamilton for her splendid contribution to the forces of the empire.  From its intimate knowledge of the  workings of the voluntary system, the  League has reached the conclusion  that .for Canada to continue its present methods would he highly detrimental to the welfare ot the country, o  Canada has without doubt attracted  to the colors a very superior class of  men who are acttiated by the noblest  principles of patriotism and duty.  Very many of these have left positions of great importance for which  competent men cannot be found.  . Almost every industry and family is  suffering unnecessary loss through the  present haphazard method of enlistment.  The first class of men who should be  called upon for service are tho unmarried fit men who could be released  from their present occupations without  serious loss  to  anyoue.  Probably this class would suffice to  complete the forces which Canada is  pledged to supply.  The country could thus fulfil its obligations without serious loss of revenue or serious disturbance of its internal economy.  A system of wise selection should  appeal strongly lo every loyal member  of thc community. If. is not contrary  to the spirit of true liberty for which  the empire is fighting. That liberty  for which a man will not fight is not  deserving of thc same. No man is  free from the duty of defending the  state.  It is not. suggested that the proposed system of selection should be permanent. Extraordinary need justifies  extraordinary measures.  It is hoped that all who are in sympathy with the above memorial will exert 'their utmost influence to further  its objects,  The Home Town the Best Investment  a Farming Community Can  Have  One Sunday afternoon two tourists,  a man and his wife, were passing  through a small, town'in Illinois, commenting the while on the prosperous  look of the place. When right in front  of oue of the homelike residences, a  Lira on their automobile blew out.. The  day was hot, the travellers were tired  and-dusty. Changing a tire is no easy  task at any time, but on a hot Sunday  afternoon in the residential district  of p. strange town, the job was a real  tragedy for two touselled and grimy  travellers, ;having a fair degree of  pride.  .Operations had not been carried far.  before the owner of the homelike place  sauntered out, inquired of the travellers where they were from, where they  were going.and otherwise made himself  agreeable. He invited the lady tourist to come up on the porch with his  wife, where there was an easy chair,  cool shade and an 'abundance of ice  water.  After the tire had-been changed, the  tourists were, invited to .wash up and  to rest and refresh themselves.  Can you imagine a more appreciated  courtesy? This man, the owner of the  homelike place in the little town, was  the leading merchant and his attention  to the strangers was nothing more nor  less than his everyday business policy.  He told the tourists all about the little town and the prosperous farming  community that surrounded it, and  upon-which.it depended for support.  He said that he knew all the members'  of every farmer's family within .his  trade district;, that. he had visited  every house and he made it a practice  to do so at freqtient intervals.  He started : in business twenty-five  years ago "with a capital of $500. Today he is in, comfortable circumstances and doing a larger business'  than at any time during his experience. '"'-'/,. ~:':'-. :'.::������������������..  Merchants like this man;make the  home towiv the-most valuable asset in  the community. A good home town enhances the value of every acre'of land  in tlie vicinity, it makes every farm  a more desirable place to live. The  home town is \\\s best investment a  farming community can have and it  only requires the good will and cooperation of the business men and the  farmers to make it .pay big dividends,  socially and financially, to every family in the community, both town and  country.  Why We Took Over Corfu  A Greek merchant residing in Great  Britain writes to remind people that  Corfu was given as a present to Greece  by Great Britain, with other Ionian islands, but there was a distinct condition attached to thc occupation by  Greece in the Treaty of 1S63, and that  was that the dynasty must not walk  rough shod over the Constitution of  the country. The monarchy of Greece  in short, was to be a Constitutional  one. Jt had not been that during 191.  ���������-it had been an autocratic monarchy.  The Treaty guaranteed the independence of Greece as a Constitutional  monarchy, and having given that guarantee, the guaranteeing powers had a  perfect right to see that the Constitutional government was not violated by  tho king. That Constitution had been  violated by holding two elections in a  year, and by the unconstitutional dismissal of the last ministry, and therefore the guaranteeing powers had the  right to interfere.

Waste in -.Forest Protection  Because of lack of field supervision,  more money is wasted iu fire protection today than is used economically.  Fire wardens aro nearly all temporary  men, and if one does not give them  supervision and training, and does not  try to keep the good men from year to  year, one cannot get the results desired. In the first lire protection services of Canada, far more wardens ion gland,  were wasting money I ban were making good use of it. Unless we have  good permanent supervision of fire  protection and have the same men as  permanent rangers year after year we  will not get the good results because  we have largo areas to protect with  vcrv small sums of money.���������McMillan.  Grim determination to fight the war  io the bitter end and a calm cemfid-  encc in its successful outcome is England's present state of mind, according to Lewellyn A. Nares of Fresno,  Cal., who reached New York recently.  He was in Liverpool on the night o������  the "central counties raid," as it is  known, on Feb. 1, though they reached  neither LiverpooF-nor Manchester, as  the Germans asserted they did. ,  '"The damage they done was confined to a small brewery," he said, "and a  few little cottages and homes in which  the casualties occurred. No one. seemed at all excited about the raid. When  the word was flashed from the coast  that the 'Zepps' were coming the cities  and towns gave the'usual signals, and  every one, except the many' curious,  took cover. You know they lower the  'lights for about ten minutes and than  flash them on again for a time, and  the people go to their homes and wait  in the safest places. Then, of course,  trains and tramcars were stopped  while the raid was in progress, .n.nd  as soon as the airships came near any  town all the lights were put out. i  was in Liverpool on the night of the  raid and did not hear anything about  it until next day.  '1 found 'business conditions in England very good, except for the shortage  of labor. For the first time in years,  every one in the United Kingdom has  work and all the work they can do.  And what is more every one is working. All the women, of the high and  low degrees, are employed. Every  man, ��������� woman ��������� or child is doing his or  her bit. A remarkable feature of the  present economic life in England is  the number of women who- are working at trades that used to employ men  exclusively. There, are thousands of  them in the munition plants and they  told me that the women make the best  sort of labor for this class: of work,  as they are capable of handling the  finest tools with facility after a short  training. All England is adjusting itself to the new conditions and making  the best of things. ...���������."'.'���������  '.'For the first time in years, also,  there is no suffering among the poor,  In fact, there are now no poor. The  shortage of laborl makes every hand  available and in families where four ot  five pounds a month tised to be the income, they now'received from thirty  to forty. Of course, this leads to extravagance in many cases and it is not  uncommon for these families to buy  pianos and other luxuries where before the war they were thankful t������  get enough to eat  "I had occasion to meet a number  of what we would call 'big business  men,' and others intimately connected  with the work being done for .the  empire, and they assured me that the  recruiting was all that could be desired.  "Everywhere I went I found all the  open places tilled with soldiers. All  the .parks, golf courses, playgrounds,  and schoolyards were being used, and  ���������I heard it said several times that the  full 4,000,000 men required had been  obtained.  "One of the reasons that Englishmen feel so confident about the outcome of the war is that perfect cooperation has been established among  the allies. ,They are practically one  great nation, armed to defend itself  against the Germans. In England they  receive things they need from thc  French and Russians, to say nothing  of the Italians, and the latter, on the  other hand, get their necessities from  England. There is perfect co-operation in finance, manufactures, tho making of munitions, the supplying of the  armies, and, best of all, at thc front  where the real work of the war is  being done.  "I found England malting preparations for the reconstruction period after tho war. The Manchester board  of trade at its annual meeting practically decided to abandon the principles of Cobden and give up free  trade. It decided to fight for a tariff  that would exclude German goods  from the United Kingdom after the  war, and tills is fhe sentiment all over  Barley or Oats First  "I know that a number of farmers  think oats should come before barley  in the order of spring seeding," said  Prof. C. A. Zavitz. "in my experience, however, the earliest seeding of  barley lias invariably given thc largest yields  with oats. Still, if the land is low  and wet 1 would not sow barley there  very early. I have seen barley so  nipped with frost that it turned yellow, but still it gave a good yield."  "It is felt universally in Great Britain that the empire is lighting the  fight of democracy, and all classes arc  taking the war with philosophy and  a grim determination to fight to tho  bitter end. Several examples of this  fe-eling came to my direct notice. At  a board meeting in Manchester, the  chairman was called outside tlie hoard  room to receive a telegram. It was  from London and told of the death  of his son at thc front. He read it,  and on his return to the room apologized for delaying thc business of the  moment by saying that he had been  notified of his son's death at thc front.  It baa not always been so   He  then went  on  with the  business  just as though nothing had happened,  although I could see the lines tighten  about hi3 square mouth. That is the  spirit of the English."  "How did tlie snowstorm affect the  train service out your way?"  "Didn't affect it at all.
