In a staterne.it recently, issued by  the Berliner Grarn-o phone,Company,  Limited, of'Montreal, manufacturers  in Canada of the famous "His Master's  Voice" Victor Records, they state that  in spite of I he tremr-ndous improvement in the Victor Records of today  over theise of,former- years, the methods of manufacture, I lie constantly increasing array of world famous arlists  who sing exclusively for the Victor-  Records, and the range of music obtainable���������unequalled in any other form  of musical reproduction���������their prices  have remained the same.  As in all lines of business, the cost  of materials and labor has. incro;ised  greatly, and it requires considerable-  fortitude arid confidence in the future  to maintain the pi-ices of more prosperous times. Realizing, however, that  in times like the present, music is one  of the, chief sources of relief and entertainment, and because' the Victor  Records form per-hnps the. greatest,  iind in most cases, the emly medium  between the people and tlie line musie:  and the great singers anel musicians of  the world, it was decided to continue  to offer these records'at the same price  as   always.  As is well known, Victor Records  arc entirely "Made In Canada" in a  laige and up-to-dati* Montreal factory  by Inn ill reels of skilled Canadian woik-  inen. The materials are gathered here  from all parts of the woild wheie they  are converted into the wonderful  black discs thnt eleliglit the millions.  With the sole exception of the- oi iginal  recording of the- artist's voice, which  for obvious reasons must be done  where the artists are to be found,  everything connected with tlie manufacture of "His Master's Voice"' Victor  Records is "made in Canada."  KING'S CONGRATULATIONS  His  Majesty   Appreciates   Gallant' Conduct of Canadian Troops.  Ottawa, April zS.��������� His Royal Highness the Duke of Goiinaught has  re-  0      i  ceived a message from King Georges  extending His .Majesty's hcaity congratulations on the splendid behavior  of tlie Canadian troops. The message,  which was dated from' Buckingham  Palace, April 25, is lis follows:'  "Congratulate you most war inly on  the splendid and gallant way in which  the Canadian, division have fought  during the lust two days .north of  Ypres. * Sir John French says their  conduct was magnificent throughout.  The Dominion will be justly proud.  (Signed);! "GEORGE."   _.���������i   PARCEL POST AND1  FARM PRODUCE  TO INTERN AT VERNON  Prominent Germans Will Be Placed Under Strict Surveillance.  As. a means e>f reducing the cost of  butter and egtrs and other of the  lighter farm products to city consumers, the parcel post lias not come up to  expectations. In the United States the  parcel post'has been operating since  the beginning of 3013, and in Canada  since the early part of 1014. but the  consumers in the larger cities have  saved little through the system. The.1  reports of individual postmasters in  the United States, which has-a low  teah; of rates for parcels up *-<> fifty  pounds, show that some prosperous  people use the .-en-vice'., but their object  manifestly is not, the saving of money,  but the bettering of quality. The  nurses have not been able, to buy more  cheaply  direct   fi-  ���������*-*.'e- farmer than  they do from the middleman at home.  In f.-u-t, quota I ions direct from the  farm on poultry, butler and eggs have  often been higher than the- retail prices of the city stme-s.  It was confidently thought at the  outset that when a cheap anel safe  channel was maile for direcL tiaeling  between farm prod ne'er and city consumer tho re would he a saving to the-  oonsmner and laiger profits to the  farmer. The costs aml'prolits absorbed  hv the middleman were   to  be  framed  ICerrisdale, Point Grey, May 1. -Instructions have been received from the  military authorities at Ottawa that  the Germans concerned in the recent  "celebrating" on Eighteenth' avenue  be interned at- Vernon.

The campaign is similar to  that 'launched by Germany against  England. ���������  The Hon. W. R. Ross,   Minister  of  c  Lands for British Columbia, who during the past tlne-e years has organized  a business administration and pi-ole-c-  tiem of the forests of the province is  now undeitaking the systematic development of wider markets for British  Columbia forest pioelucts. The import-  ante of this work to the province cannot be over estimated. The annual  value of the forest product* of British  Columbia in 11)1 .'j was nearly $31,000,-  0(10. The forests of the province are so  exLnsive as to support in perpetuity  five times as great an industry, or- one  worth ^ITO.OOO.OO". This sum of money  practically all of whieh would lie distributed in lhe piovine-e for labor, sup-  plie-s and transportation, would ensuie  continued prosperity u> ali classes,-  benefitting the farmer with the tradesman anel mechanic.

But the optimists���������and most eil" us  weie in that class--dill not leckon sufficiently on the ability and keenness of  the farmer to swallow all the saving  himself. He has found if possible to  do so, since the supply of farm products has never caught up to the demand. Most farmers-watch city price's  cldsely, and are, in fact, better informed on them than are city consumers.  Direct trading', on city curb ni.-tikc-ls  often bears witness to the truth eif  this. Market prices are quite as high  as the retail store prices.  In   Canada,   at least, there has he-en  little, development of .the farm-to-e.-on-  suinei- trading by 'parcel post.

Judgment for the Canadian Pacific  railway was given in Montreal by Mr.  Justice Dunlop against the Storstad,  resulting from the $3,000,000 suit over  the; finking of the Empress of Irelariel  on May 29, 191-1.  The extent of the damages will bo  fixed by the de-puty registrar, Wm.  Thompson Walker, K. C, assisted by.  merchants, the assessment to be,filed  with the coin l; within the next six  months.  In giving judgment Mr. Justice Dunlop says:  "On the Storstad, Mr. Tufteness,'  first officer, was in charge, perhaps *  assisteel by Saxe, thirel officer, though  the latter claims he had nothing to do  with the! navigation of the ship. In  my opinion Mr. Tufteness in riot-stopping the Storstad, when he heard the  (iist three: blasts from the Empress,  made a great error eif-judgment, anel  to my mind had Capt.

YEARS  AGO I  THE KAISER'S STRATEGY  It will not be known until some historian with access to German material  is in a position to write a detaileel history of  the  weir- how  far the Kaiser  assumes direction of German strategy.  The  impression   prevails   that  he has  given special attention .to one particular phase.    It was he who insisted upon the march  to  Calais  last autumn.  Emperor   William   was   in    Flanders  when   that   disastrous    attempt   was  made and it was supposed to be at his  instance that repeateil  assaults   were  made after- the case was recognized hy  outsiders to be hopeless, After months  of hard  fighting  elsewhere  Germany  has returned to the scene of last year's  battle to find between them and Calais  a vastly stronger army of de-fence.    It  nlay   have   appeared    that   the,   way  wouid be easier in V. is season, or that  the  poison  gases would paralyze the  defence, or that the German artillery  was now. more effective.   The Kaiser  is not likely to have realized that the  Allies might be stronger than before.  He is subject to a kind of absentmind-  c-ilriese.    He thought  only  of  the de-  5   (l-Yoni ihe  Hedley Gazette ol  May  I -1-lh, 1905.)  J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the  V. V. i)cJi.. was in town on Saturday  night.
