C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1915  $1.00 PER YEAR  POLITICALAtlTVITY  ; A dispatch from Victoria an  nounces unusual activity in political  circles; there during the prist few  days. This has resulted in a Hood  of rumors regarding the possibility  of an early election in the near future. While a great many of these  c >me from irresponsible sources,  there is enough authentic inforuia-  ti>n obtainable, to show-that the  government is planning a surprise  for the people of the province.  .. There is some doubt as to thp exact  nature of the coup.'but it may be  stated on the bjst of authority that  an election will be held before the  Christmas season.  The premier.Sir,Richard MoBride,  ���������is at present confined to his home  with a- severe cold. Mr Bowser is  in full command and, although his  intimates refuse .to divulge any information,it is said that the original  plan of usurping Sir Richard's position has been abandoned temporarily, the attorney general being advised by bis friends that the prime  minister is necessary to win the  forthcoming election and that Sir  Richard will remain as the nominal  leader- until- a-later date. On the  other hand, it is most confidently  stated that Sir Richard will be  squeezed out of the government and  be given the position now held by  J. H. Turner as commissioner for  British Columbia in England.  The personnel of the  neweabinel  is an open secret in political  circles.  Hon. Dr. Young and Hon. Thomas  Taylor will not have any place in it,  the latter because he has been a con-,  stant   source  of   weakness, and the  former   because of   his   connection  with   the   ArbjthnotPacific   Coast  Coal mines deal.    Messrs. C. E. Tis  dall,   A. C. Flumerfelt   and   Lome  Campbell will be the  new members  of the ministry.   Of the other  Vancouver   members,    H.   H.   Watson  has been   slated as chairman of  the  labor   commission   at   a  salary   of  $5000 per annum, and Dr. Maguire,  as   a  reward   for   his services both  recently   and in the past, is   named  ���������as   the   new   senator   from British  Columbia     Not   long   ago a photograph   was ��������� taken   in Victoria by a  well   known   photographer  of   the  following group:    Messrs.    Bowser,  Flumerfelt, Tisdall, Ross and Campbell.  mediately after the accident, the  score being' 5 to A in favor of the  high school girl.*. The. game between the Republic high school boys  and the Grand Forks high school  boys, which was scheduled for the  same evening, was postponed until  Saturday' afteruoon, when the former team won by a score of 2iJ to 5.  PROHIBITfONISTS  Death of Mrs. Donaldson  The death of Mrs. Clara R. R.  Donaldson, beloved wife of John  Donaldson, occurred at the Grand  Forks hospital. on Monday morn  ing, after a week's illness with heart  trouble. The late Mrs. Donaldson  was 43 years of age at time of her  passing. She was a native . of  Guelpb, Ont," where she was born  and raised, and where she was married to Mr. Donaldson.. She came to  Grand Forks with her husband .seventeen or eighteen years ago, and  has resided here ever since with the  exception of a short period, wlien  the family moved to Regina. She  is survived by a husband and a  family ot five children���������two sons  and three daughters. Deceased had  a wide circle of lriends and acquaintances, and she was very highly esteemed by all for her many admirable qualities. The profoundest  sympathy of the entire community  is extended to the bereaved husband and motherless children.  The funeral has been put off. until 2.30 tomorrow afternoon.in order  to afford an opportunity of the elder  son of deceased to reach the city  from Chicago, where he is attending  school. The service will be held iu  in the Presbyterian church at that  hour, and interment will take place  in Evergreen cemetery.  Accident at the Rink  A serious  accident  occurred   last  Friday evening at the  skating  rink  during the progress of the basketball  game between the   high school girls  and the city girls.    Toward the end  of the game, when the play was getting exciting, a large number of the  spectators leaned over  the    railing,  which gave way undi r their weight,  precipitating about thirty of them to  the ground below.    Three girls from  Republic were severely injured. One  had   an   arm   broken,  another sustained a dislocated shoulder, and  a  third was badly hurt in  the   back.  Arnold Carter, of this city, was severely bruised and the shock of the  fall rendered   him  unconscious  for  half   an hour.    Miss Emma Need-  ham also received some  bruises  by  the fall.    The game was called   im-  Death of Hugh S. Mills  The death of Hugh S. Mills, aged  30   years,   occurred  at  the   Grand  Forks hospital on Wednesday morning;  after suffering  for   two    weeks  from typhoid fever.    Dt-ceased   was  a   native of New Brunswick, where  his parents reside.   He came to this  city   seven   or  eight years ago; and  has resided here continuously since  that time.    At the time of his death  he was in the employ of   N. L. Mc  Innes & Co.    He was an exemplary  citizen, and   everybody   who   knew  him  was his friend.    A   brother of  his enlisted in this city last year f������>r  the front, and he is   now fighting in  the trenches somewhere   in   France.  Deceased is survived by a wife and  two daughters, who mourn the  loss  of a kind   and   loving  husband and  father.  The funeral was held at 2 30  this afternoon from the family residence on Second street to the Presbyterian church, where services were  held The remains were shipped to  the former home of deceased in New  Brunswick on this ceiling's C. P.R.  train.

The answer of the provincial  government to the prohibitionists  has been given by Premier Mc Bride  in a reply to' the president-'of��������� the  prohibition movement and in answer to the deputations which wait  ed upon the government asking  when a plebiscite would be taken  and what form it would take. The  premier says he" wholly . concurs  with the question being dealt with  in a non partisan way, but thinks  that satisfactory results will be obtained if the plebiscite . were taken  at the same time, as an election. He  does not consider that-such a course  would involve the mixing up of  issues, but on the contrary, thinks  that in the in e e t ex red by a po  litical contest the maximum of  votes would be secured. In the  event of the plebiscite being held  separately it would cost between  $40,000 and $50,000.  Dealing with the form of submis  sion he points out   that  the   prohi-  bitiohists want a   referendum in the  exact  terms  of   a bill submitted so  that an absolute response of yea  or  nay   can   be registered.    He thinks  there are  two    fundamental   objec  tians  tb this proposal,'  In the first  place   it  restricts   the choice of the  people to only one method  of  dealing with the liquor problem,whereas  there may be many   effective   metb  pds of bringing about what   prohibitionists   have  chiefly in view.    He  points out that an act of   parliament  may be inspired by a right principle  but may express   it   badly.    In   the  second   place   he  is opposed to the  suggestion of direct legislation, which  is contrary    to   the spirit of British  representative; institutions  and   responsible government.  It is, he said,  a form of legislative procedure growing   up   in  tho   United States with  very  unsatisfactory  and   expensive  results.  What the government is desirous  ol ascertaining is the wish of the  people as a whole on various phases  of the question involved. Whnfthe  people want the government is prepared to carry out to the leiter If  they emphatically declare for pro-  hioition, he says, the attorney general will carry it out without fear or  favor, and for this reason the form  of plebiscite must be such as to  clearly indicate what is the public  wish and what is fair to ail classes  of the community. As soon ns the  form of reference is prepared an announcement will be made.  address the Sunday morning  and evening services in the  Baptist church. He will also remain over for a special Monday 8 p.  m. meeting of interest to parents  and workers among theyoung. Mr.  McLeod for twenty five years in  India was a pioneer organizer and  worker among the Telujus, and has  many interesting things to tell about  those peculiar people of the East.  The funeral of Joseph Michael  Caron, who died in the Grand Forks  hospital last Friday morning,  was held from the late residence of  deceased to the Catholic church. A  large number of friends of the family  followed the remains to Evergreen  cemetery, where interment was  made.  FOR THE BELGIAN  Charles Newman and Miss Ida  Zuelka, both of this city, were married in Holy Trinity church on  Tuesday morning, Rev. P. C. Hay-  man performing the ceremony. The  couple 'left on the Great Northern  train the same day for a short wedding tour to Spokane. On their return, Mr. and Mrs. Newman will  take up their residence in this city,  Mr. Newman being employed in E.  C. Henniger's feed store.  H. M. Lunney, who was severely  injured recently while working on  the pole line at the Jewel mine, has  recovered sufficiently to leave the  Greenwood hospital.  Rev. P. 0. Hayman, of Holy  Trinity church, conducted a s'rvice  at Billings on Thursday.  REFINE COPPER  1   The   British   national   committee  for the relief in  Belgium   has   sent,  the following appeal, signed by  the  Lord Mayor of London,   to  ail   the  high commissioners and agents general of the overseas dominions.    It  has been transmitted to  Sir  Robert  Borden by Sir George  Perley.    The  prime minister  of  Canada in turn  forwarded   it   to   Sir   Richard Mc-  Bride.    It reads as follows:  -  "Fete day   heroic   king   Belgians  falls'   on   Monday, loth   November,  and as chairman national committee  relief Belgium I appeal people British empire celebrate event  in   manner   that   will  afford   King Albert  greatest    satisfaction,   namely,   by  subscribing   money     enough   feed  whole   of   three  million    destitute  Belgians in Belgium   on   their   beloved monarch's fete day. Sixpence  will keep one Belgian alive for  one  Jay, therefore   I   appeal   for  three  million sixpences enable us to  keep  alive on king's fete day  every   one  of his   subjects   who   are   without  food. Canada  has responded   nobly  to cry-of starving Belgians and I feel  certain this special  appeal   for  sixpence   per   head   will   meet   with  ready response.    Ends!"  The appeal is for a   most  worthy  object, and it is commended-to-your*"  I best consideration and to  such   ac  ' tion as you   may   think   desirable.  I The message having been   transmit-  i ted to me as   premier  of Canada, 1  j feel it my duty  to  commend   it   lo  -you as premier of your province.  ;     The British Columbia government  is anxious that as strong an effort as  ' possible be made to meet this appeal,  [and   your   assistance  in organizing  Col    Carnegie,   chairman   of  the s^h ^ appeal in your  district will  S OF THE CITY  shell committee at Ottawa, is "re-  ported to have stated that the committee has placed an order with the  Consolidated Mining & Smelting  company at Trail for a supply of  refined copper in Canada, and that  arrangoments are being made for its  production.

Curious   Customs   Practiced  Serbian Villages  U is not surprising to learn that llie  plucky   Serbian   .soldiers   carry  on   to  the  battlefield  all  manner of curious  mascots, for our smallest Allies are a  very superstitious  race. ' In  the  Serbian villages the inhabitants practice  many   curious  customs   by  means  of  they   firmly   believe  that   they  can ward off evil and bring for themselves good  fortune.    At certain seasons   of   the   year   Serbian     farmers  make small crosses with'special trees  and throw them on the vineyards and  fields  as   a  protection    against  liai  storms.    This custom is generally observed on April.2-1, St. George's Day,  when    Serbian ladies ,also evoke the  aid of charms as a means of.improving Iheir looks.    The girl who wishes  a white, face places a bouquet of flowers under a white rose tree and allows  it to remain there for a night; whereas those who prefer rosy cheeks place  blooms under a red rose tree and in  tho morning the flowers thus ''charmed", are thrown into their baths.  Serbian women who wish to have revealed to them their destined husbands have a curious supper table  custom. They put aside the first  and last crumbs of bread, bind these  together with a piece of wood, and ley  the whole under their pillows. The  future husband is then said to appear  in their midnight dreams, and as he  may be across the sea the piece of  wood is included in the charm to serve  him for a boat.  In some Serbian districts every master of household drives a lamb to  church one day each year. A wax taper is lighted and fastened to the head  of tho animal, and it is taken to the  church door- Tho priest then recitss  a prayer ovtv the lamb, in which he  asks that the business of the owner  may prosper. At the conclusion of the  ceremony the apim:.l is killed, its flesh  being roasted and eaten by the owner's family, whilst the skin is presented lo the priest.  The Serbians are very superstitious  over animals, and they have a practice  of forecasting the future by means of  the shoulder bone of a roasted sheep  Crop Exceeds AM Expectation's  "When.- one of the leading millers  of the country speaks of a "100,000,000  bushel wheat crop as a possibility for  Western Canada this year, it is about  time that the public woke up to a  realization of the measure of success  which has attended the present season's operations. It lias far exceeded  what tho most optimistic of us dared  to hope for, and the stimulus which it  must give the country will influence  our whole future to "an enormous extent.���������Edmonton Journal.

Near the upper part of the bone are  some small holes which, according to  their size and position, are termed  "cradles" or ''coffins," and foreshadov  jor or sorrow.  On the eve of St. Barbara's Day in  Serbia it is a custom to' boil e small  portion of every species of grain in a  pot over a wood fire. In the morning "the surface of the grain is critically examined, and should it be uneven it is thought a-good omen. The  grain is then thrown in tpooiifuls into  a neighboring stream, and if three  wishes are asked for they-are always  said  to  be  granted.���������Tit-Bits.

Excellent Results Secured, but Precautions Against Weeds is-Required  Reports     from   various   cities   and  towns in Canada as to the cultivation  of vacant lots indicate that tho campaign    inaugurated"    last    spring for  greater production rnd more extensive  use of vacant land has been a success.  Several cities have handled the vacant  lot problem in  a systematic manner,  ���������and have secured lesults^commensurate to (he amount of energy expended.  Some,   by  allowing  interest    to   lag,  have  been .only  partially  successful.  In others, also, circumstances militated against success in that .unemployed men took i:p the cultivation of vacant lots, and,  upon  securing  employment, neglected them.  On  the  whole,  however,   tho  movement   can   be   regarded as a distinct success. No,.estimate  of  the value of-Ihc  product is  available,   but,  judging   from   the  enthusiasm  of some  of  the  vacant lot  gardeners, the total value is large.  There is one danger from the vacant  'lot garden, however, fo which attention must lie drawn, namely, th3  growth of noxious weeds in the newly  cultivated land. Too often, on the removal of the crop, the ground is given  over to the weeds.

Shilling a Week For Prisoners  It was hoped some time ago that  one shilling a day would be paid Canadian prisoners of war in Germany,  but as the army council have decided  to allow only one shilling a week to  "British prisoners of war irrespective  of rank, and as iL is absolutely necessary to treat British and Canadian  prisoners alike, the Canadian government have asked the war office to arrange for prisoners to get this amount  also. Prisoners when required to  work are paid .11 cents a day by the  German government.  Other Recommendations  to Destroy Canada Thistle  Curse  Alfalfa is not a cure all.

Change Made Owing to Its Rapid  Growth  Owing to Vac rapid expansion of tho  Uoy.'.l Naval Air Service', both with  ri'Sicct. to,personnel and material, the  admiralty has decided to place it under the direction of a flag officer with  the title of director of the air service.  It ear-Admiral C. L. Vaughan-Lee  has been selected for this appointment. Commodore M. F.

Could Put Over 300,000 Soldiers in the  Field  In refusing to allow Germany and  Austria to send munitions of war  through Itoumania to Turkey (he Roumanian government gave strong proof  of its friendly attitude towards Great  Britain and her allies. This has now-  been followed by similar action on tho  part of Bulgaria, King Ferdinand" having assented to a ministerial decree a  few days ago forbidding the passage  of war supplies to Turkey through his  country. Viewed in the light of Premier Asquith's outspoken remarks in  the house of commons ' to the effect  Great Britain was preparing,to give  financial assistance to one or more  neutral countries which were likely to  be drawn still closer to the allies, t'ni.i  step by the two Balkan states is highly significant.  Military observers agree that no  harder blow has been struck at-Tur--  key than this cutting off of her supplies/and the prediction is made that  Austria will attempt to ��������� force a passage to the Turkish border. Such an  effort would result in disaster-to the  enemy, for tli3 slightest offense in this  direction would bring a declaration of  war from both Bulgaria and Rou-  mania. It will not be. surprising if  these nations lose little time in entering the conflict anyway; for it must  be plain to'them now that their only  hope of gain is in actively opposing  the Teutons and their ally. There is  every indication that the newly elected parliament of Greece looks at it in  that way, so far as Greece is concerned, and' its attitude undoubtedly is  Laving a tremendous influence with  Roumania and Bulgaria. The latter,  military observers believe, will throw  j-its lot with the allies in spite of certain railway concessions that Turkey  is reported to have made to the Bulgarian government.  If Bulgaria should enter tlic war on  the side of the allies it would be in a  position to put between tfOCOOO and  400,000 first class soldiers in the field-  While the population is only 4,400,000,  about 2,600,00 less than that of Roumania, a very large proportion of the  male population is trained to fight an ".  the women are ready to take the  places of the met. in all-kinds of domestic work. The Bulgarian navy, of  course, is of little importance, as it  consists only of a torpedo boat or two  and a few small steamers. But it  would not be the military strength of  Bulgaria that wouh. mean so much to  Ihc allies it would be the ease wit'i  which allied forces could pass over  Bulgarian territory lo the Dardanelles  that would count most.

V  Pre'sent Waste Land Should be Utilize  ed  For Growth of Timber  Optimistic as we have been in Ui:&  country, we seem to have been unable  to see any value worth caring- for in  our non-agricultural lands.   Our vision  was   broad   enough   years  ago,  when,  wc heard of agricultural lands in the  Peace River Valley, to recognize that  such lands, while unused at the time,,  would  within, a decade or  two grow  crops and support a population.    We  may look'acros's the futurj.to.the time,  when   our  far  northern   mineral   deposits, though inaccessible and incapable of development at present,  will  develop  centres of industry..

This attitude is both dangerous '  and  unfair to .the' country.  We must  realize that our present stands ofmer-"  chantahle  timber cannot support our  growing  industries  indefinitely.    Tho  growing American demand for forest  products, to which in a very few decades  will'be added a much greater-  market in Europe than now exists, will  very rapidly wipe out our eastern merchantable forests.

Generous Feeding-  MiFfe GRAIN EXCHAN  ever   Ho   to  Dairymen Should Feed Their Cows All  They Will Eat ,-  There are certain fixed charges,  often called overhead charges, that  are comparatively uniform in milk  production. For instance, the cost of  stabling, the space required per cow,  taxes, insurance, delivery of milk,  etc., will be very uniform. The one  factor that will lluctuate will be the  feed given. If the a-mouut of feed  consumed by the cow will give the'  results indicated; then it certainly is  to the interest of our- dairymen to  feed their cows all they will- eat and  yet keep up the fli.w of milk. There  are dairies where the cows are  being fed to this economic poin1.  Some -of the dairies have enormous  overhead' charges, yet in spite of this  they were able, to produce milk for  fifteen cents per gallon. The secret  lay in the extraordinary yields per  cow. One dairyman has rather low  overhead charges. He also feeds his  cows the least amount possible- His  milk flow per cow is very low, duo  primarily to his skimp method of  feeding, and as a result it is costing  him over forty cents per gallon to  produce his milk.  If the milk How is increased, the  cost of production is lowered very  rapidly. Some investigations have  been, carried out along this 'ine ii  which cost of production records were  kept. It was found in one particular  instance that the cost ot producing a  gallon of milk with, the 3,000 pound  cow was about twenty-five cents per  gallon, with the 6,000 pound cow it  was twelve and one-half cents, and  with the 'J.OOO-pound cow it was only  a trifle over six cents. This great ci :-  crease in the cost of milking per gallon is due to the increased flow per  cow. with the overhead charges remaining the same. The only increase 1  cost was for feed,-which went into the  production of milk.

I'riONB It 74 Grand Fokks. H.G  H'KLIMV   XOVEUBER   12,  191o  Premier McBride's answer to  the prohibitionists is a masterpiece of'vagueness. If Sir  .Richard expected, when he  made it, to gain a reputation  for wisdom by saying nothing, his object has been realized.  The Greenwood Ledge wants  the   charges   made     against  ' Peter Veregin of horsewhipping some of the  girls in the  J)oukhobor colony  near this  city investigated.    We should  also like to  see a little more  publicity thrown on the   matter.    The charges were printed  in  The Sun  a couple of  weeks ago, and we have good  reasons for believing that they  are  fou ded   on   facts.    The  details of the incident, as  we  stated them, were told by one  of   the   girls  who had  been  .lashed to her  sister, who related the circumstances to her  husbaud,     an      independent  Doukhobor   employed by one  of the fruit growers on the Covert   estate.     This   man   informed  his employer  of the  outrage.    The rancher says-he  notified the -provincial  police  immediately 0after Peter had  administered   the  horsewhipping, but that no  action   was  taken.    Another    citizen    of  Carson   also   states that he,  too. informed the police of the  incident.     Whether or not the  police had   instructions from  Victoria to do nothing, we are  not  prepared   to  say,  but  it  looks  that   way.    These  are  the facts in the  case.    To  us  the   charges     made   against  Veregin appear to be  serious  enough, in view of the severe  beating and    barbaric  treatment given the girls, to   warrant an   investigation.     The  Ledge,   ov   any   other   Tory  paper, should not lay the unctuous flattery to its heart that  the details printed in The Sun  in  connection with this case  were dreamed in this office.  day in the not distant future  his mind's vision will be a  reality; and the present.war  will do a great deal toward  bringing about this ideal state.  Teach the people to think  right, and they will soon sec  the uselessness, injustice and  barbarity of war:  "A day will come when the  only  battlefield   will   be   the  market   open . to  commerce,  and the mind opening to new  ideas.    A day will come when  bullets  and   bomb shells will  be replaced   by   votes, by the  universal suffrage of nations,  by arbitration of a sovereign  senate,'which will  be to  Europe  what  the  parliament is  to England, the diet   to  Germany, the legislative assembly  to France.    A  day will come  when a cannon ball will be exhibited   in   public   museums,  just as an instrumentof torture  is now, and tht* people will be  astonished how such  a  thing-  could have been.    A dav will  come when these two immense  groups, the United  States  of  America and theUnited States  of Europe, shall   be   seen extending the hand of fellowship  across   the ocean, exchanging  their products, their industry,  their arts,.their  genius, clearing the truth, improving creation under the eye of the Creator, and uniting, for  the good  of all, those  two   irresistible  and infinite   powers���������the fraternity of man and the power  of God."  i'EVERISH, CONSTIPATED  Look   Mother!

There are people who look  upon matrimony as a necessary evil.  jSTo argument can discount  genuine happiness.  It takes a woman to lead  a fool man around, even when  he imagines he is driving her.

It is estimated that  in moving the total grain crop of  more than halt a billion bushels the  three roads will earn between ?I0,-  000,000 and $50,000,000, and the effect, of this both on tho roads themselves and on other branches of  commerce will bo very great..

Various  reasons have been attributed for flic  situation, among others being the  falling off in immigration, tho business depression and the increased  competition of one road against another.  In no one branch of commercial  activity, however, does' tho harvest  so greatly, rellccf prosperity or tire  reverse as in tho .Canadian railways.  These roads, whose western business, although being developed and  increasing with the growth of the  country is not of enormous proportions during the entire year, depend  to a large extent on the harvest.

This belief is probably due  to the fact that when the blood is thin  and  watery    there is an acute sensitiveness    to    atmospheric  conditions  and a change  to wet'   weather often  means    a return of   the. excruciating  pains.    Rheumatism, however, is rooted in  the  blood,  and  it can  oniy  be  driven from    the system by building  up and enriching tlie blood. Mot baths  and  outward applications ot liniment  may give temporary    reiie  not cure.    If the disease is not attack  ed    through the blood, it simply fastens itself more firmly on the system,  and the sufferer    ultimately becomes  'hopelessly crippled.   The truth of this  is proved by the   case of Mrs- Frank  ] Ford,    of    Calgary.  AUn.    Mrs.  Ford  'says:    "I was an almost helpless crip-  .ple from rheumatism.

This, and a whole lot more  information concerning immigration  work is contained in a very interesting little booklet issued by the direction of Hon. \V. J. Roche, minister of  the interior, called "Immigration  Facts and Figures."  Immigration has been encouraged  from the British Isios, the United  States and certain European countries, but, 'of course, at present the  campaign is not being, carried on in  Germany, Austria, Finland or Russia.  Southern Europeans or Asiatics have  not. been wanted at any time.  There are various ways in which  the attractions of Canada arc set  forth to the prospective emigraut-  Regular agencies are established,  newspaper - publicity, distribution of  ' pamphlets, exhibits of grains and  other products; and in Great Britain  exhibition wagons are sent around  through the country districts. In., the  United. .States exhibits are made at  the J)ig fairs and expositions. In  Great. Britain and Europe arrangements are made with steamship and  booking agents, whereby a bonus is  paid for the emigrants which are directed to this country. Records in the  pamphlet go back" as far as 1897, but  in the majority of instances they are  not complete for all that period, as  more detailed and accurate information regarding new arrivals in thc-Do-  minions are constantly being introduced.  During the past 15 years there was  a total "immigration of ;>,050,000, the  largest number from any country being those from the British Isles, 1,159,-  62S; with Americans a close second,  3.058,000. Of. the remainder the Aus-  tro-Ilimgarians. which include the  Galicians. numbered 200,000.; Germans, .".8,000: Italians, 119.000, and  Russians 97,000. These are the round  figures.  Easterners have a pleasing habit,  of .telling the people west ui-tne lakes  that money which is spent on immigration is a direct contribution to the  filling up of the-west and that we'  should- be correspondingly grateful to  them for allowing the money to be  appropriated.
