HOLD ANNUAL CONVENTION AT ARMSTRONG  The tenth annual distriot convention  of tho Woman's Christian Temperance  Union was held in Armstrong last  Wednesday and Thursday, May Sth  and 0th, and was a splendid success  throughout. Whilo thero were not a*  many delegates present a* in former  years the result was very encouraging  and although there is considerable  talk ol hard times thia did not seem  to apply hero a* the collections were  hotter than last year. ���   i  The following officers were elaotod (or  the year:  President.���Mrs. S.

The meeting adjourned until Monday  ���tot.  Torpedoed and sunk without warning by murderous German pirates o't  the IriBh ooast, the Cunard liner Lusitania, one ol the greatest steamships  in the world now lies a wreck at the  bottom of the sea, and of her t.vo  thousans souls, passengers and crow',  less than half have been saved. ���  The tragic news ha* spread grief  and horror throughout tho British  Empire and the-rest of tho civilizod  World.  The Lusitania was steaming aluu;  about ten miles olf Old Head ��|j  Kinsale, on tho last 'stretch of her  voyage to Liverpool, when about two  o'clook Friday afternoon a submarine  suddenly appeared and so far as nil  reports go, fired two torpedoes without warning ot tho steamer. Ons  struck her near the bows, and tho other in the engino room. Tho powerful  agents of destruction tore through the  vessel's side, causing terrific explosions.  Almost immediately great volumes  of water poued through '.he openings  and tho Lusitania listed.  Boats which were already swung out  on .the davits, were dropped overboard  and were speedily filled with passengers who had been appalled by tho disaster. Wireless colls for help were immediately sent out, and rcso.io boots  of all kinds wero sent out both horn  the points along the coast un I from  Quecnstown. But within fifteen min-  utos, ns the survivors animated, and  certainly within half an hour, tho Lusitania had disappeared.  Many of the passengers did not he-.  lievo tho, Lusitania would sink ns  quickly as she did. Consoqueitly t'.ty  did not join in the rush for tho lifeboats, but evidently preferred to trust  in their belief that tho watertight  compartments of the vessel would keep  her afloat until such timo as holp  oamo out from tho Irish coast, less  than ten miles away.  Thero wore on' the Lusitania SO  babies who were leas than 12 months  old, and more than 100 others whose  ages did not reach two yoars. Nearly  all hove been drowned.  Tho latest estimate ol the nunibe������  ���of livos lost is 1199. It is believed  that all of the survivors have liec.i  brought ashore.  The Lusitania is the twenly-niiitli  vessel lo be sunk or damaged in the  first week of May in the so-called  "war /on.." about the British Isles.  Tho Cunord liner Lusitania was ,  steel built quadruplo screw steamer  and was launched in 1907f She carried steam turbine engine* and nnd u  speed ol twenty-five knots nn hour.  Her (otnl length was 769.2 leet' r.n.l  her breadth wa* 87.8 feet, with a  dopth ol S6.fi feet. The total tonnage  of tbo vessel was 31.500 tons. Slw  was one ol the moat palatial and mod  em steamships ol ehe Cunard line.  WAVE 0,F RESENTMENT   OF  I.ATESJ VILLAINY  The feeling of resentment agaiust  Germnny over this latest and most  appalling outrage has been so great  that it has broken bounds in many  places, and resulted in riots and attack* on German reeidents. In London all the Gorman membera ami  clerks of the stook exchange, whether  naturalised or not wero bodily eject  ed, and in other plaoes in England  tho some feeling has been shown.  In Victoria big crowds collected und  attacked tho German club and any  premise* believed to be owned by Gorman*. The riot act was read and thc  aid of ihe militia from Willows Camp  had to be secured to quoll the disturbance*.  WAUNING GIVEN OF GERMAN  INTENTION  A remarkable feature in connection  with tho occurrence wa* that warning  waa given in New York prior to the  sailing ol the Lusitania, thu German  Imperial representative* actually going  the length of inserting an ad-  vertiaement in the papers, warning  Americana from sailing on the   boat.  Strong criticism Is being levelled  aga'nsl the Cunard Company* lor thoir  sppsr.nt lailur* to tak* proper    pre-  Tho prize competitions for orchar i-  ists which nro being held this year uu-  der the auspices ol the Department of  Agriculture, ond which were noticed iu  a recent issue, were discussed Saturday last nt a meeting of the direotura  of the Farmers' Instituto. The arrangements of tho competitions ��� are  left in the. hands of loaal institutes,  ond it was decided to hold two separate contests for tho Kelowna district,  one embracing orchards up to nine  years old nnd tho other for orchiir-Ji  over that ago.  Tho object of the competitions -is  to encourage the careful and economical management oi orchards, ' oca  points will be givon in scoring Ior Ihe  healthy and vigorous appearance ol  tho trees, showing that attention hos  beon paid to proper pruning and tho  eradication of diseases and pests, and  also for tho general appearance of tho  land itself, whether in cover crop  or otherwise, and for tho absence ol  weeds, etc. The voluo of the production of the orchard will also be taken  into consideration.  In each competition the first prim  will be $20, second 215 and third $10.  an entry foe of 50 oents being charged.  All necessary information may bo obtained from and entry mado with Mr.  E. L, Ward, the secretary of the Institute.  $1.50 Per Annum    "''    ���   �����  Mr. ,1. It. Terry, chief poultry Inspector of tho department of agriculture, Victoria, announces that no has  received advices from Montreal to the  effect that thero is a considerable likelihood of thero being an exportation  of oggs-in large numbers to eastern  Canada from this province in the ncai  future. The supply in Ontario nnd in  other eastern provinces hos boen much  below the demand, and lately there  have been a great many shipmtut.  brought in from the United Slates  There is also a probability of Can  ado exporting eggs to England, th is  creating a bettor market in thu East  for western eggs. .

For tho first time in the history of  Chicago, a negro, Oscar Dol'riest. wo*  elected lo serve in the city council. He  was chosen from tho Second Word,  which is thickly populated by negroes.  He is nn ex-county commissioner,  cautions alter those warnings.  Survivors forcibly exprossed the opinion that thu Lusitania wus badly  handled in being run into waters whore  it was known submarines were waiting. Although not lor a moment attempting (o shift the blame from the  .'murderous Germans' lor the sinking  of a ship full of innocent passengers,  they insisted that the officers ot '.he  steamship, knowing that submarines  woro lurking oil the Irish ooost, night  to have taken a different path to  ovoid oil danger.  What the action of the United States  will lie in view ot tho loss of so many  American citizens ia not yiit known.  VERDICT OF WILFUL MURDER  The coroner's jury whieh has been  investigating at Kinsale the deaths  attendant upon the loss of the i.usi  (ania returned tho following verdint:  "The jury finds that this appalling  crime was contrary to international  law and the conventions of all civilized nations and we therefore charge (Lo  offioers of the submorino and the German Emperor and tho government of  Germany, undor whoso orders levy  acted, with the crime ol wilful and  whole**** murder."

The Kelowna Women's Institute is now launched, aud  already has a paid-up membership of  103, surely a most striking evidence  that tho Institute was needed and thut  it has caught tho enthusiasm ol the  women of the district. The meetings  hove been remorkablv woll attended  throughout, and muoh valuable information reoeived.  The final stages in the organization  will take place about a month heucer  when Mrs. Lipsett, of Summerland,  who is the organiser for the Okanagau  will be in Kelowna, and the offioers  (or the year will be elected. In the  meantime Mrs. Harold Newby haa been  elected secretary pro tern.  On Friday last Miss Livingstone  went to Rutland and held a meeting  thoro. Some 65 ladies wero present,  ond a helpful address was given on  household management particularly in  tho use of milk, egg* and cream, and  the making of cheese. The utilization  of the products of the farm as a solution of the high oost of living was  particularly omphasiyed.  It wos also decided to form a Women's Institute for Rutland and some  41 names were handed in. Miss Ruby  Elliott was elected secretary pro tern  On Sunday Miss Livingstone motored to Vernon with Mr. and Mrs. D.W.  Sutherland with the intention of returning by boat on Monday to N'ava-  mata, whero she is to give a two  week's course of lectures.  VERNON   TO BE   TRAINING CAMi'  FOR B. C.

BIRTHS  CLARKE.-To Major and Mrs. Clarke,  I at Vernon on   TuesJday, May 11th,  twins, a son and a daughter,  COPELAND.-On Thursday, May 6th  to Mr. and Mr*. Jaa. Copeland, ��  son. ,  Hospital May Have  to lie Closed Up  At the regular meeting ol the Hospi  talBoard on last Tuesday tbe question  of closing the hospital at the end of  May was very carefully gone into tad  the directors feel that although there  has been a fair amount of inquiry,  that the public generally has not taken the matter aa seriously a* they  ought to.  During the month there was enough  money made if all the patients pay  to meet the expenses but there ore  always some who cannot pay their a>  counts, and as mentioned in a letter  recently, the sooiety ia so (ar in debt to  the merchants that unless then is  some immediate effort put forth by the  public generally they cannot continue.  The direotors have decided however  to defer aotion in the matter (or another month and they will be guidhl  entirely by the support that the nos| i-  tal will receive in the meantime.  fiendish Crime Deliberately  Planned  Sir George Foster, acting Prim*  Minister ol Canada, made tbe following comment ' on the action ot the  Germans in sinking the Lusitauia:  "It was a fiendish and altogether  unjustifiable aet, contravening all %*���  tobliBbed usages of war, repugnant to  the moral and humanitarian sense ol  the world, tn the worst days ol piracy, pirates would have scorn si such  a deed.  "It appears to have been carefully  planned by the German authorities iu  Berlin, aided by German representatives nnd adherents oa this sido ol the  Atlantio. The object wa* not to prevent contraband reaching Great Britain or to destroy enemy propert/.  These objects could have been completely and easily attained without  thc saorifioe of a single lite. The nil  joet, clearly was to seize tho bail,  possible opportunity lor sudden ami  ruthless destruction ol a* large a  number ot non-combatant* and mi -  tral lives as possible with the design  ot intiinjdating pr sent and poui' la  belligerents, and dramatically impressing th* world with the quality ol  "(rightfulness" which th* German  war code inculcate*.  "The warning of a Jialf hour would  have sufficed to have saved every soul  of the 2000 on board, then the ship  and cargo would have been *ent Ui  the depths, and tho menace and power  of the German submarine fully aa well  demonstrated.  '"Phis latest war villainy ha* un.  doubtedly shocked the world a* I'.m  German authorities Intended it should,  but they will find that here aga u.  their method* have over-reached tin  mark. The British people will not hn  intimidated by this dastardly wotk.  It will only odd to the grim detoi-  mination of Britain and her allien to  pursue the war to th* end."  .imJmmmvru-'.-m- PAGE TWO.

Fruit Industry  and It's Future  Editor  Kelowna   Record.  I .said in my Just letter that 1 vus  nn optimist, do ont; will question Unit  statement when I any I beliove ihero  is a splendid future ahead of the fruit  growing industry, and that the Okanagan will become one of tho moat  prosperous districts in the entire province. Climatically, as well as for  natural beauty it is one of the pleas-  mit est   places  to live in.  I have studied the markets carefully  not by lieresay, as mnny of ua lo,  but in those markets first hand it  cannot be disputed that we grow th��  finest fruit grown on the continent.  The ('. i\ R, is giving-us reuson^bh-  freight rates, good car service, mixed  car privileges, and in the paot ae-isou  quick runs in the matter of time in  reaching our markets, diverting, fipot-  the Okanagan they ilnml jm once Ml  the cool mountain nir. t'nihr vemi'.i-  tion this air acts ideally in rre-cooiing  ting cars, etc. Whon out cars i'luve.  tlio fruit. So that we "have the best  fruit of its kind grown, quick SBrvlo?  to the market, and nature's finest pie-  cooling plant, without cost. Thus we  can rca<m markets with better fruit,  sijxir fruit, and in better condition  than can any competing iYu!t dis-  district. Why, then, you ask, do we  not get bettor prices?  I said in my lost letter it was mainly our own short sighted policy. We  were wnrned five years ago we were  pursuing a lop sided policy and ibut  We were planting for larger and largir  future crops and doing practically nothing for future marketing of that  crop. We were expecting dealers to  come along and buy it at good prioes  as they had done when the production  was small. What would wc have  thought of a large manufacturing concern, manufacturing a great supply of  goods and expecting that some cm-  side company would come along and  market their output for them profitably? Do you think they would develop their markets themselves and  go ahead of their output too?  Jn order to show something of iur  losses and tho roasons, it will be i-ec-  essary to go back to 1908. At . hat  timo and previous it was tho custom  for the salesmen for the wholesale  houses in canvassing country towns  to Inke ordors from the retail?rs -vs  early as duly for lato summoi* and fall  delivery for such preserving fruiU a*  peaches, prunes, plums, otc. The retailers in turn took ordera for it fsom  their customers, Tn filling these orders anyone who did not order aher.d  took a chance of gotting no fruit.  Both wholesalers and retailers took a  long, profit. By 1909 tho system wjt-  to put a car of American fruit into a  town and everybody l^iy from 1% 'or.  There wasn't suflicient demand to put  in a second car, so it was "buy -from  the car." These cars were very p-olit-  able to both. Wholesaler* naturally  pushed the goods horn, and had thii  fine margin of profit on the tight side  of the ledger befora B. 0. Irrt came  in and it had to take whit liltlu  market   was left.  In Itfll there began a change. People saw they still could get fruit after  the American car wos unloodjd, better  .fruit and cheaper, so could not bo  stampeded, but the ruahjng of An.ui-  con fruit .continued as ii meant n  handsome margin to both jobber nfed  retailer. Thc natural result of this  policy reached a climax in 10111. An  nereaeed amount of Ameri:,ni fruit  was shipped, consumers began to i.oig  bank' and ears accumulated ,a all the  selling points, B. 0. fruit cirne on  heavilu    causing    a gut everywhere.

Martin Burrell, minister of  agriculture, has telegraphed "to the  provincial department ol agriculture  that a custom regulation will immediately go into force requiring the  marking tho country of origin on  packages containing eggs.  This notification means that tho |ier-  aistent elVort of the provincial poultry  association und its thirty-three local  affiliations, demanding an Egg Marks  Act, has been .partly successful, and  the regulation passed is expected to  be of great assistance to the growing  industry of egg production in this  province.  The legislation sought was primarily directed against the marketing of  Chinese eggs as provincial fresh eggs  and the regulation will have the effect not only of preventing eggs from  the Orient being foisted on the public  as the product of British Columbia,  but, in tho opinion of poultry .men  and egg-dealers, practically -will out  off all importations of Chinese eggs  into this province^  No General Election  Tlio proposal of tho Dominion government which a week ago seemed a  certainty to hold a general election in  Juno haB now Ijeen definitely abandoned. The proHpecta are that there  will be nono now until the end ol the  war is in Bight.  I'imticIiiM and Kolowna are anxiously looking for some ono who can put  tho can in cannery.  with consequent losses that were staggering. Hut out ol this '.truggl,. II (.  came through winner ot tbe ma'rr.s.  Jt has been claimed by some parties  that in 1913 they won the markets lor  B. 0��� but their contentions are rot  correct. Attw 1912 wholesale-s co��.IJ  not stampede tho public to buy the  Amorioan fruit. Tho public had  bought at too low prices late in lho  season ol 19IS to pay high prices >.ur  ly. This wa* amply proved in 1914  when the first oars of American (mil  came in and netted the jobbers bringing them in a handsome loss. Ye v'll  always have to meet Aineriuai prices,  but prices being equal our Iruit will  be favored, and the people will wait  for it.  This is one more reason I am ua optimist over (ho future ol the fruit industry of the valley. I propose in my  noxt letter to show aome ot the very  heavy losses in waste and unnecessary  expense in marketing, which changed  to the credit aide would go a long way  to justify further my optimistic view  of tb* future.'     Your* truly,  J. W. WOOLSHX  Historic Hills in Flanders  A correspondent ot the London  Times writing from Flanders, saw:  "It has always been a mystery why  the Duke of York, having marcliud hie  men up the hill marched them down  again. The hill was in FlnndeiM. I  went up it and down it today unit the  mystery is deeper than ever. Why an>  kindly man once having gotten hia mon  to the top of a hill in this country'  should maroh them down again, i spec  tally in tho conditions of warfare which  obtained then, must for. over remain unknown. There are only two hill** in  tho whole stretch ot the map���the hill  upon which stands the town of (. abtel  and the Mont de Cats. II 'toralart  alone wero studied in thi* campaign  those hills would be orowded ns was  the Ark in the timo of the flood.  "Unfortunately, comfort has to give  way to tho requirements ol fighting,  and those two promontories arc ut  spatsely populated. Thoy rise (o  abruptly from the flat, rioh plain that  a man can almose lie upon his bark at  their base and rest his feet against  them. Tbe country which they dominate is in many respects the richest, the  most interesting, and the most fascinating portion of Flanders; it is also  the most disheartening, the most monotonous, tho muddiest, and the most  damnable country imaginable for tbe  operation of an army used to sanitation, cleanliness and attaok.  "From both ot the two pro entorios  whioh dominate it more or less the  same view is obtained, that of a richly  irrigated country (it seems ridiculous  to use this term ol landscape, whioh is  made up of mud), cut into 'mail  chequers by a network of dykes, poplars and roads. Tho long line of poplars ttretch so far into the horizon, tho  dykes intersect eaeh other with sueii  vigor, the roads twist and turn with  suoh persistent ingenuit*. that it really  scoms as though hero in Flandors the  world had been planned out and iv-  though nowhere could there lo the gurgle of a brook, the blue of a mountaiu,  or tho green shade of a wood. Ked  roofs, church spires, chimney factories  and windmills occur with such frequency as to Buggcst that somo vory  misguided enthusiast hns choson this  section of tho world foi a garden city  experiment on a gigantic scale."

"  ���������������  THURSDAY, MAY 13, 1915  KEtOWNA  RECORD  Five Hundred Dollars a  Day for Stettler Formers  From the middle of May the creamery at Stettler, Alta., will be distribut  ing over {500.00 a day amongst the  farmers of that districtf The production will averag? a ton of butter each  day to make which about 5,335 pounds  of cream will be required. Good cream  yields' thirty per oent., ot butt'ir fat,  and the Stettler creamery pays 33  cents per pound for* butter lat. This  means a daily dostribution among tho  patron* ol the oreamery of practically  five hundred dollars.  Another example of the rapid growth  of the creamery business anil its importance to the district is found in the  case of the creamery at Yorkton, Saskatchewan. The Yorkton creamery  was established in May, 1911. Til.)  production of butter for the fix si, 11  months, of its existence was 100,000  pounds, beside* considerable quantities of ice cream and other ireamery'  products. This year, in order to cope  with increasing business new buildings  will be erected, 40 x 70, at a cost ol  from 08,000 to $10,000, and additional  machinery will be installed which will  greatly increase tho capacity of the  plant. Twelve buying stations will be  established at country points tributary  to Yorkton antl cream will be Bhippod  in for considerable distance*.  riot  Curl Attacking  the Trees  Peach curl is attaoking the peaoh  trees of the lower Okanagan distriots,  around Pentioton,' Kaleden, Peaohland,  and Summerland, says the Pentioiou  Herald, and the fungus invasion this  season would appear to be a serious  one. The disease has made its appearance within tht past ten days. Il  is also noticeable in Kolowna, though  of courso the number of poach tree*  is small compared with down tho loko  point*.  One grower in Pentioton declared ho  believed the peach ourl would reduce  the orop fifty per cent, but this estimate would seem . to be somowh'it  large. Al all ovonts, however, pe'.i'h  ourl is prevalent all through tho poaoh  bolt district, being particularly noticeable in Pentioton nnd Peachland. The  growers state thnt thev have Iniihful-  ly sprayed this season for this disease and at the proper timo too, somo  using double strength bordoaux mil-  ture and others Black I.eal Forty.  Many of tho peach trees in local  orchards aro now turning brown with  the fungus attaok and very soon all of  the new loaves will bo destroyed, this  foroing the trees to put out new loaves  in order to breathe. The additional  nail upon the vitality of the trees wil1.  naturally mean a reduction ia the  fruit yield. Many growers have commenced to spray again, now that the  bloBsomB are gone.  Condition of Prairie Crops  is Excellent  Crop prospect* on the prairies are  now excellent according to latest reports. Light showers fell in- Alberta  and Manitoba last week and thero is  now sufficient moisture in the ground.  In Manitoba the early sown wheat is  well up and 50 per cent of the ' oat  crop ha* been sown.  In tho throe prairie provinces it is  estimated that 15,000,000 acres will be  in    wheat this    year;    7,000,000     in  .oats; 1,000,000 in flax nnd 1,00'),-  000 aoroa in barley.    The wheat crop  ' is estimated at IS bushels per aero,  the oats at III bushels, flax at 10,  and the barley at 25.  -O-  Settlers in the Fort George land distriot aro potitioning tho government  to mako a loan ol $1000 to each pro  emptor at once, so that tho necessary  improvemonts enn be made on tho  land this year. Tho matter will receive consideration at the next mooting of the executive. Tho absenco of  tho usual amount of irovernment wovk  in tho distriot, and tho general slackening off in development work hns  hnd tho offeot of placing many ol tho  pre-emptors in an unfortunate posi-  tinn.  Last yoar in B. C, bounties     wero  paid on 382 wolves, 280 cougars and  4,138 coyotes.  Postal Rates to U.S.A.  The post office department has ile-  olded that owing to the high rate ol  exchange on New York it has been  found necessary to restrict to $5 the  total value of postal notes which may  bo sold to one person on the name  day for remittance to On Unitod  States.  Postmasters are instructed not to  sell moro than ��J." worth, of postal  notes to ally person unless he receives  an assurance from the applicant that  the notes will not be sent to the United States.,  MUST NOT DELIVER OWN LETTERS  A boy in Woodstock, Ont., who wa*  Delivering monthly statements (or his  employee was stopped by a post office  official, tho envelopes and enMosurot*  wero taken away from Lim. and ho  was warned that both he and his em  ployers were liable to fines of $20. According fo post office authorities, the  Postal Act forbids a driver or delivery  boy to deliver letters of any kind,  bills or accounts, whether in open or  scaled envelopes to anv nerson in Canada. The carrying of letters is a government  monopoly.

This  is to achieve as early as possible ooinn  success of sufficient magnitude to influence neutrals, to discourage the  Allies, to make them weary of tbe  struggle, and to induce the bsliol  among people ignorant of war that  nothing has been gained by the past  efforts of the Allies because the Hermans have not yet been driven back.  It is being undertaken with a political  rather than a strategical object."

SOU.  Local Baseball Boys  Make Disastrous Trip  Last Saturday afternoon a sad acoident befel a number of young men  from this oity, who deemed themselves  baseball players and wandered forth  in search ol whom they oould devour.  They wended their way down the lake  very quietly, apporently enjoying the  trip, by launch on the smooth waters  of the lake, until nearing that well-  known place "Squally Point" when  like a flash the placid waters began to  boil, tossing the craft about in such  fashion that many of the boys declared they would rather walk than  ride. Howover they stuok to their  posts, (huddled together to keep off  the flying spray whioh wet them to  the skin) and fought off the reaeiok-  ness which threatened to overcome  them and finally landed at Peaohland  about 4 o'clock. Here they were met  on the shore by a hostile band in  grey and red uniforms with whom they  battled for seven long innings, dating  whioh iime (hey sucoeeded poorly 'n  checking the advance of 'he enemy,  who at th? olose had scored seventeen  times while the local squad annexed  only two.  As .is usual in .such cases thero .ire  many reasons for this undeser/ed defeat and the boys returned home with  a thirst for revenge which they will  endeavor to secure when the Peachland  team visit Kelowna on Thursday next  May 20th.  The performance began with Port  Treadgold on the firing line for the  locals, but in the third inning ho was  replaced by Sutherland after he had  got disconnected from terra firma and  "gone up." Sutherland who replaced  him never really got within speaking  distance of the soil although he remained on the mound for two innings  when his plaoe was taken by lviucaiil  who finished the game but failed lo  check the Peaohland batters in their  quest for fat batting averages.  The pitchers, however, let it bo said  were not wholly to blame for thu defeat as the local players are not used  to .playing in tho gravel of the lake  shore as the grounds proved to he,  and a ball hit along the gravel' was  labelled "safety" and wont unmolested  by tbe local players. Furthor they  failed to connect with the slants served up to them by the home pitcher,  this no doubt being due to tho faot  several ol the looal players woro handling a ball for tho first time this season making their judgment of distance and timing of Bpoed rather pojr  causing them to swing their war clubs  harmlessly against the atmosphere instead of the ball.  The boys are now practicing hard  to get into condition and promise .to  give a better aoeount of themselves on  Thursday afternoon next at the-local  park. The game will be oallod at 3  o'olock.  SCHOOLS LEAGUE BASEBALL  The games in the Sohools Baseball  League laat.Saturday afternoon were  won by Rutland and Ellison, the  former winning from the Publio sohool  by M while Ellison defeated the High  sohool 30 (o 18.  The High school, Ellison nud Hut-  land were materially weakened owing  to one1 player from eaoh team going  with the pick-ups to Peamland, however the games were olose anh interesting.

These increases wore  made in face of the fact that in 1914  the oompany paid dividends on the  common aggregating 36 per ceoi.,  against 30 per cent paid in 1913. The  regular rate of common dividends in  both yeara waa 10 per cent., tho additional being extra.  ���   - ���i �� ���  Although it ia generally supposed  that the war in Europe haa absolutely stopped the flow of immigration  from across tbe Atlantic to Cauada,  returns for March show that a thousand immigrants Irom across the sea  entered the Dominion in that period.  These new arrivals practically all  oame to western Canada,  's Fire Losses  With a firo loss averaging ove? two  million dollars per month, or sixty-  seven thousand dollars per diiy, the  fire situation in Canada liaa reached  the stage where- steps must be luken  towards discovering the . cause and  evo.ving some means for a large reduction ot this annual tolL Fire commissioners agree that a large proportion of fires are of deliberately inccn-  dairy origin, that a still larger percentage are of unconsciously incendiary, and that a not inconsiderably  number are the result ol carelessness  or neglect. The number of fros resulting Irom causes beyond human  control constitutes almost a negligible  quantity in the year's total. How this  situation should be handled is a difficult question. The law prescribes punishment for arson, but, under piesent  conditions and with the masninery  available, it is exceedingly difficult to  secure convicting evidenoe. The insurance companies, being private corporations, cannot be expected to proso-  oute, unless the amount at issue is  sufficiently large and the evidenoe is  conclusive, it is oheapet ior them to  pay the loss than to contest it.  . The police departments ol our cities  are not interested in fires unless it be  shown that there ore suspicious circumstances surrounding the occurrence  Even should this be demonstrated,  there are no trained men conneoled  with the police forces qualified to thoroughly investigate the oircumstanoes.  The Ontario legislature at its session  in. 1914 passed an Act to appoint a  firo marshall, whose duty it would be  to study tho question of the annual  Iobb. He would also have power lo  investigate fires whioh were deemed of  suspicious nature and to prosecute  where necessary. No further aotion  has yet been taken under this legislation, and the appointment of a fire  marshal is still in abeyance.  Thirty-liiree Thousand  Women Enroll for Service  Thirty-three thousand women have  registered themselves in England for  special war service up to the end of  March. This statement was made by  Walter Runciman, president of the  board of trade, to a deputation representing the various women's societies in London.  Six thousand of the womon, Mr.  Runciman said, had doclarod themselves willing to work in arraiimont  factories, four thousand !n ,-lothing  factories, 1,700 in dairy work, C00 as  gardeners, 2,300 in various branches  of agricultural work, 1,100 as slop  assistants, 500 as leather workers uud  5,000 in clerical work. Six hundred  women had been given employment at  the board of trade, Mr. Runoimin added.  The government, the'speaker continued, insisted that women employed  on government contracts be paid the  same piece rates as men. The government had arranged to give women will  ling and qualified to undertake dairy  or agricultural work a fortnight's  training in agricultural oolkges, paying them meanwhile $5 per we-sk as a  living allowance.  rta% five  mmmVBSSStSBmmmmWm  PROHIBITION'S PROHIBlTIViWUSS  The question of the prohibiting quality of prohibition being up again uud  speakers on the "anti" side in the  (Congressional' debate having in effect  declared that the establishment ol  prohibition greatly inoreeses the con  sumption of intoxicating beverages, the  bankruptcy report ol . a t9,00'),000  Cleveland , Ohio brewery is interesting.  It is set out that when Ohio in 1900  increased the liquor tax from {350 to  411,000 almost 25 per oent ot the saloons in Ohio wero olosed and the  brewery oompany's loss ol sales on  this aooount were 17,000 barrels of  beer a year. In 1908 a oounty option  law waa passed and as a result of  oountieB going "dry" business fell off  R1,000 barrels a year. In 1914 Wosl  Virginia became a prohibition state,  and tha company lost 1500,000 ol its  remaining business.  If thia brewing company correctly  describes its woes it would seem as if  prohibition and other restrictive measures have some effect in lessening the  sale of intoxicants. Nevertheless we  may expect to hear red-nosed lieges,  leaning against the bar, solemnly announce (hie) that they would support  prohibition except that it had a bad  effect in increasing the sale oi liquor.
