A. & T. ASSOCIATION
HAVE WARM TIME
The meeting called by the above
' association to finally consider the
turning over of the deed'bf their
grounds, to the city, was well attended by members of the association, and some of the leading business, men. ~ Mayor .DeHart and
most iof, the "aldermen were also
present ...'..„
Mr. D. W. Sutherland, president
of the Association, took the chair,
and the meeting was opened by
the secretary- reading over the
agreement as passed at the last
council meeting by the City Council. In his opening remarks, the
chairman stated that the association
had been behind financially, and
last year were unable to pay some
of the prize money. .The directors
therefore asked .the City Council
to take-over the land, and by submitting a plebiscite, it was found
x that the ratepayers were in favour
of this being, done. The by-law
was passed to raise the money,
and the Council had agreed to the
„ conditions laid before the meeting.
Personally, he was not in favour of
\ this agreement" and suggested.that
the Council ^graitt-the  association
'' about $4,000 of &em_ney,realized
• on the debentures, the ^association
to. assume the liability arid pay'the
interest   and   sinking   fund,   the
• grounds „ becoming.^ the     citys
'security.-;. If the*proposit_nv was

K£.^g«W' '  7'^»7V'7'       .     /
A"   \ q&Mayor DeHart, in- reply, stated
;  that Mr. Sutherland proposed to
•• .change.the entire plans of "the A
& T. Association as submitted to,
-~ "'  'and voted on by therpeople..,The
A. „& T7 Association in the first
'.,   instance- came   to   the   city and
asked for the land to be taken off
-their hands and the city-had gone
to the expense of going into the
1 matter,' drawing up and publishing
'l by-laws, and the ratepayers, by a
vote of two to one, approved of the
deal. The directors had;agreed
with the council on the'terms on
which tlie grounds should be transferred,
Mr. Sutherland ^disputed tbat an
agreement had been effected, and
such could not be done without a
vote of the members of. the associ
ation.        7
' Mr.' Stirling argued on behalf of
the association, that he' did not
 muin.—ii—iium- uioi-u»v-5«-wu"_i
wprth $15,000or $20,000, should
.  be handed over Jo. the-city, for
.   practically only the use of the buildings for one week in the year.
* *•" Mr. Leckie protested very strong-
'      . ly against tbe agreement, particularly the last clause, in which the city
, . ■   could" not   dispose   of   the land
without the association agreeing.
■  In speaking for the ratepayers,,Mr.
- Leckie stated that a number ox the
people who had voted iii favour of
it were disappointed at the outcome, and also a number did not
understand the deal.' A battle of
words ensued here between Mayor
DeHart and Mr.\Sutherland, the
, mayor-maintaining' that the agreement as passed by the council had
been accepted by the directors of
of A 8c. T. 'Association, to which
,   Mr. Sutherland replied   that  the
* acceptance was aubje<£ to ratifica-
"" " •  tion by, the present meeting, as it
was a matter for a general meeting
^ ' 'i to decide. >       ...   .
Continuing his line of argument,
Mr. Leckie said that be Van ted to
see .the A. & T. Association con-
,  Hnue, but that he thought it wrong
for the. Association to have an
,, agreement of this kin^i with the
i,city, when some of the-ratepayers
■• woiild be forced to pay for proper-
• ty that they did not want.
Mr. i Sut_erl__d'\ could / see - no
'  reason why. the city should not
.  adopt the proposal he-had mat
submitted.     By   so   doing   they
would  have  that  extra, land  to
assess.,
*_***n   ** .*_-**-«- **
Aid. Elliott—"Mr. President, a
deputation of the association waited
on the council last year, asking that
they would take over the grounds
on certain  conditions, if the  ratepayers passed a by-law.   Now you
want to make another proposition
altogether that was not thought of.
The by-law was  put through  on
certain conditions, and  I, for  one
of the city council, am prepared-to
stand by it   Why did the A. & T.
Association want to have the bylaw put to the vote, if they want to
draw back now ?"
" Some disorder prevailed at intervals,  a few claiming that the city
should have absolute control of the
land, and the chairman had  once
or twice to call the meeting to order.
Mr. Stirling,- seconded  byv Mr.
Taylor, moved thatthe Agricultural
& Trade Association do not accept
the proposition, and suggested that
the     association     could    borrow
enough on a second mortgage  to
pay off the mortgage and-interest.
Mr. DuMoulin, with considerable
indignation,   resented*• the < stand
taken'by   the association  at the
present,time.   He pointed out that
some'months ago the  association,
by   resolution,   decided   that t the
grounds should  be disposed   of.
He, with*some .others/ were appointed to mate "arrangements for
this, and; after spending a lot' of
tirne^and thought,'they had  come
to jui-a^eement witK.^tj^cily, only,
to be-turned- 'down noW^like aflot
of schoolboys.--"' 7'7   " *      _"" , r*
?In.8upp6rtingyhim,,Mr. Flaymer
reviewed'thesituation.   Ameeting
of the A &_*. Association had  in
the first place'gone to the council
to ask 'for their help.   The gende-
men appointed by the association
had spared no pains in coming to
an agreeable understanding with
the city, and ihe did  not see- why
the A. & T. should now go • back
on the agreement.  'The 'guestion
raised during the meeting that the
city "should  not go in for'horse-
racing, had,nothing, to, do with the
matter.   The  council' were   only
asked  to  p_t the track',in  good
repair.
Mr. Taylor:—"If the city keep up
the course and put the'track in
repair,,the, city would be going in
for horse-racing."
Aid. Elliott:—"You might as well
say that the city is going into baseball and lacrosse, because it allowed
this in the park." - f A
The muddle that things were
getting into was' commented on by

was possible to raise the money by
a second mortgage, it would be to
the best advantage all round. •
Several complaints were heard
that no public meeting of the ratepayers had been held in connection
with, the matter, and that it had
just been rushed through, and many
were the suggestions to put in
order, a meeting that appeared to
be getting more and more complicated.
An exciting few minutes ensued
when Mr. Dilworth, commenting
on the failure of the A. & T. in the
past, laid the blame largely on the
management , This started Mr. T.
G. Speers off, and he roundly rated
the members of the A.&T. for not
turning-out to the meetings and
so help the , management. Time
after' time he was there with. just
one or two, often without a quorum,
and he had to go out and, get them
by telephone. "As to Mr. Dilworth," said Mr. Speers, reaching
the climax, "he never appeared at
one of the meetings."
Throughout the , whole of the
proceedings the real object of the
meeting was conspicuously ignored,'
and many times the company were
reminded that the subject had been
overlooked, and a search for. the
tangled ends would lead to confusion worse confounded.
An amendment to Mr. Stirling's
motion was moved by'Mr. Mc-
Eachren, seconded by Mr. Raymer,
(Continued on page,7.)
REORGANIZATION OF
THE BASEBALL TEAM
A meeting was held in Raymer _
Hall on Friday last for the purpose
of reorganising the baseball team
for the coming season.   The chair
was taken by Mr. S. M. Moulton,
who was captain of the team last
year. v ,. . '
Mr. Moulton urged the 'boys to
get together and practice regularly.
He  was  of  opinion  that 'it was
possible to pick nine good-fellows
to play for the town, ancLwho, with
the co-operation  of, the business
men of Kelowna, would put their
life and soul into the  game and
earn tKe' reputation of plrying the
fastest  ball  game  in  the'."valley.
He was sorry  he could not stay
with the team; but business called
him  to  the   coast.     The   further
development    of    the   team,   he
thought, would be better placed in
the  hands of an advisory board.
The names of Mayor DeHart, Mr.
C.   B.  Daniel,  and  Mr. J. Bowes
were put forward as suitable people
to fill this position, and a resolution
was  carried  that - these  three be
asked to act in this capacity.   7
Mr. Moulton also strongly urged
the team "to„ work'' for Kelowna,
either by utilizing the gate-receipts
for music or uniforms for the band,
or for 8prrie^ ojher purpose ' that
would benefit-tHj|£- town itself. * "Jo
dp this, he wished, to see r4_e business men take ,Sao interest in the

order, a ground „8uitable7fotsfi.r1
class matches, where' a gate-would
be charged and spectatorslwell'ac-
commodated.   This ground-would
be'used for football, lacrosse, and
baseball.' He thought the baseball
team would be able to have two
triangles if it was found-necessary.
The question of practice was
next discussed,' and' as a suitable
practice ground could not. be
'fixed on that night, it was decided
that Mr.xPettigrewand Mr. Josselyn
be asked to search for a triangle
suitable for this purpose.
Mr. Moulton then- asked Mr.
Pettigrew to take his place as
captain pro tern, until the advisory
board elected a permanent captain
in his place.' He (Mr. Moulton)
was sorry he had to leave the team
at this interesting juncture, but he
wished it to be understood that
even though he was away in body
his good wishes would always be
with' the Kelowna Baseball Club.
It was finally proposed by Mr. J.
W. Wilks and seconded by Mr. C.
B. Daniel that a vote of thanks be
given to Mr. Moulton for his
services-given-to-the-teamTin his
capacity as captain last season, and
also for the interest he was taking
in the reorganization and formation
of a first-class baseball team to
represent Kelowna. The resolution
was carried amidst hearty applause
and the meeting then dispersed
until further plans could be made.
MOUNTED RIFLE CORPS.
The question of the formation
at Kelowna of a corps of mounted rifles is not being allowed
to drop without further efforts
on the part of those interested. Mr. Harry Bower who
has been conducting .the correspondence with the Government
with reference to the matter recently wrote to Mr. Burrel, M.P.,
asking for his influence in aid of
the project and - has received the
reply that although Mr. Burrell was
anxious to encourage all such
movements, he had had a conversation with Sir Frederick Borden
and found that it would be impossible to assist the formation of
the corps financially for the present
Mr. A. Montgomery arrived by
the Aberdeen Tuesday last, having
had a short stay at Penticton. He
was so taken with this locality when
passing through that he decided to j
return
The council had various matters
to discuss last Monday. There was
a full attendance of aldermen, with
Mayor DeHart in the chair.
The minute8 ot last meeting were
read and adopted.
Same discussion arose about a
letter from the Canadian Fairbanks
Co. asking for a statement of satisfaction of the electric light plant
The mayor explained that he saw
no reason why the statement should
not be signed and sent to-the Fairbanks Co. He' had spoken to Mr.
Russell and he had said the plant
was in excellent working order.
Mr. Raymer attended and asked
the council for permission to move
his hall, and if necessary cut the
wires so that his building could
pass underneath.
The Mayor thought it should be
made a-by-law that when wires
were cut and damaged by the removal bf buildings, .the expense
should be borne by the owner of
the buildings.
It was finally proposed by Aid.
Ball, seconded by Aid. Rowcliffe
that Mr. Raymer should have permission to cut the wires, provided
he have the work done by a city
electrican and bore the whole expense. They thcrught Mr. Raymer
ought to be given every consideration in view of the magnificent
building he contemplated putting
up in the place of ^the one to be
removed. ~      *
7^ Aid., Elliott wa_7 ready with an
estimate _o_ painting the fire hall
als he said it was an eyesore to see
a building of that description without,paint A little discussion was
raised" on this' point, but it was
finally'decided to hold the matter
in ebeyance. .
Aid. Rowcliffe mentioned that
several bridges were unsafe, and
that there" was such a gap at the
side' of some to allow children
falling in the water. -
'Aid. Ball suggested 'the putting
up of a wire netting along the sides,
but 'other Aldermen 'thought "a
board nailed up would be sufficient.
The question of the iron brace
coming from the cross piece to the
railing, on the bridge on Pendozi
"street was severely criticised by
Aid. Bailey. He knew that many
people had come into collision
with it and considered it dangerous.
Aid. Elliott suggested the lengthening of the cross piece and it was
finally proposed by Aid. Elliott,
seconded by Aid. Rowcliffe to give
the Board of Works power to fix
this matter, as well as to board up
the sides ofthe bridges.
A suggestion was also put forward for the raking off of stones
on Pendozi Street and the matter
was promised attention.
Aid. Ball next put forward a
suggestion that a code of fire
whistles be established so as to inform people whether the fire was
in the east, over the creek or in
town. It was decided to refer the
matter to the Fire and Water Committee.
The Mayor next spoke about the
work done at the Power House,
and told the Council that the
second engineer contemplated
leaving at the end of the present
month and Mr. Russel would have
to 'get a man. ,'
■ A lengthy discussion ensued
which took up the different views
of the^situation and it was finally
proposed by Mr. Ball, seconded
Aid. Elliott that the resignation of
the second engineer and the appointment of another one be left
in the hands of the light committee
to dispose of it to the best advantage of the city.
The following resolutions were
carried.
Ball-Bailey—That no deed transferring   the   exhibition   buildings
and grounds will be satisfactory to
the City Council, which does not
I give the City oftKelowna the right
to dispose of the property, should
it be found advisable to do so.
Elliott-Rowcliffe—That Aid. Cox
be asked to act as Building Inspector pro tern under By-Laws
Nos. 57 and 58.
Cox-Ball—That By-Laws 57 and
58 be reconsidered and finally
passed.
Cox-Bailey—That H. W. Beatty
be appointed  pound  keeper for
1909 for city, according to by law.
Bali-Cox—That the sum of $5,0-
00 be paid to Mr. D,  Lloyd-Jones
on account of the purchase price
of the park property.
- A petition was presented by Mr.
Reed from the tenants of the lots
on the west side of Pendozi street
asking  that a  sidewalk be ■ constructed from Willitt's drug store up
the west side of Pendozi street as
far as A. Gagnon's corner, the side
walk to be of cement and under
the Local Improvement Act
The following correspondence
was read:
Letter fiom Thos. Cunningham
in reference to the growtf. of willows along townside site, which
passeo through Mr., Pridham's
orchard, arid asking that they may
be got rid of, as an effort would be
made this year to clear all orchards
of weeds.

The  fog which at   present
envelopes   the  affairs   of   the
Agricultural and Trades Association seems to grow more and
dense with every meeting held
for the purpose of clearing the
air.     Each fresh meeting reverses the proceedings of the
last.    It would have been infinitely better if this question of
the turning over of the grounds
to  the city  had   been   more
thoroughly discussed, and some
.definite understanding reached
amongst the members ofthe
Association themselves before
the city jcouncil had been approached.   Although the irretraceable ' step .may   not    be
taken, ,yet" when  the   engagement has been announced, the

that lately  submitted   to   the

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,
The writer in the Nelson Daily News
quoted by the "Courier" is quite right in
advocating the use of a reliable brand of
Blood and Bone fertilizer. But how is the
farmer to know when he is buying a reliable article ? He may insist on having
a guaranteed analysis, but how much
better off is he when he has it >
The writer of this alticle has seen many
samples of reliable (?) Blood and Bone
fertilizers analysed in the laboratory. They
were generally up to the guaranteed analysis, but some of them contained as
much bone to the bag as would make
half a dozen shirt buttons, and sufficient
blood to give one the impression that the
women who had sewed up the sask had
cut her finger. This small percentage of
blood and bone is no doubt put in to
satisfy the qualms of conscience of the
makers in their endeavor to worship God
as well as Mammon.
They are no worse however than the oil
men we heard of a short time ago who
were selling oil in Kelowna adulterated
with->water, and their integrity is on a par
with the integrity of the gentlemen who
sell embalmed beef in Chicago.
If it is our duty to protect our fellow-
men from fraud as much as possible we
may say for the protection of farmers,
that an artificial fertilizer may have a
guaranteed analysis shewing a fair percentage of Nitrogen and Phosphoric Acid,
but the "nitrogen may be derived from
woollen waste, leather dust, soap scum,
horn shavings, etc., and the phosphoric
acid may be derived from phosphoric
rocks instead of Bones.     ,
This makes a considerable difference in
the value of the fertilizer as the chemical
constituents though present are not in a
readily available form for good plant
nutrition.
If you desire to use a mixture of Blood
and Bone the safe plan is Ho buy dried
blood and also fine bone meal, and then
you will know that you are about as near
to receiving the pure article as you may
hope to get.      '
Further, Bone Manures do not suit
heavy soils but act best on light soils.
Soluble manures such as Nitrate of Soda,
Sulphate of Ammonia, Guano, etc, are
more suitable for heavy soils, altho Guano
will give good resultson light soils also.
When Bones are used they should be
finely ground and if possible it is better to
procure slightly boiled bones, as the fat
on raw bones interferes with their decomposition and makes the results appear
much slower. Too much boiling however
removes the gelatinous matter which contains the nitrogen and as the boiling or
steaming is mostly done under great pressure by large manufacturers, to take out
the gelatinous matter for other purposes,
it is not always easy to find a good sample
of Boiled Bones.
Soluble manures like Nitrate of Soda,
Sulphate of Ammonia, Guano, etc., should
be applied in the spring, whereas Bones,
Phosphates, etc. should be applied in the
Fall.
The best source of obtaining nitrogen
and generally the most economical is from
Nitrate of Soda or Sulphate of Ammonia.
The best source of Phosphoric Acid and
the cheapest is from Superphosphate of
Lime.
Soda and Superphosphate should not
be mixed however, as the free sulphuric
acid in the phosphate will liberate the
nitrogen from the Nitrate of Soda. The
Superphosphate should be applied in the
fall and the Nitrate of Soda or Sulphate of
t .rnmonia ss a lOp-uFCssing in the—spring
after the crop is up. ,
For a good complete fertilizer there is

PERILOUS  SLEEPWALKING.
The Tragedy "on Which Bellini Wrot<-
, His Celebrated Opera.* " .
Somnambulists can maintain*; theli
footing In the most perilous places so
long as they remain in a state of som
nnmbullsm, but If suddenly awakene.l
they Instantly-lose their self posses
sion and balance ,       ^ ~
- On one occasion a young woman liv
ing in Dresden was seen at midnight
walking on the edge of the roof of kher
house Her family were lit)medln'tely
told of her.plight, but .were'afraid to
go near ber The neighbors gathered,
about the house _ind placed mattresses
and'blankets along the street-in hopes
that they might save her in ~case she
fell. . '
;She danced for over an hour on the
slanting roof, apparently retaining her
balance without difficulty, and every
now and then she would advance to
the .edge and bow to "the silent crowd
standing many feet below her.
At last she climbed down on to the
wide gutter which ran In front of the
"window through which she had come:
with the evident Intention of re-enter
ing,the house 'The crowd watching
.her so Intently drew a sigh of relief
But,' unfortunately, her terrified' rela'
tlves. thinking to assist her, had placed
two lighted candles in the room near
the window, nnd as she approached th7
light felt'directly In her eyes.
Instantly the shock awakened' her.
and she swayed back and forth in her
perilous position; then, with a frightful
scream, she fell headlong to the ground
She was fatally hurvt and died In n
few hours It-was on this tragedy thai

Overwhelmed by the bursting of a cofferdam fourteen men men loBt their lives in
the new Vit.oria Dock at Birkenhead.
The  men,were  engaged in  excavating
work,   and   a dam   had been   constructed

about _n hour «md a ha f after the men charter Member
had started work. Unable to bear the
.pressure any longer, the dam gave way
and the water rushed into the excavation
and onto the doomed men. The excavation was a veritable death trap and there
was no exit to safety. Only one man
escaped and then by a miracle. He was
carried with great force against a dock,
wall and managed "to cling there until help
arrived.    -
A heavy crane was fixed at the edge of
the excavation. This fell, carrying with it
the engineer, craneman and crane signal
boy. The engineer clung to a floating
plank amongst the debris, but the signal
boy was pinned under one of the crane
supports and when rescued was found to
have a broken leg.

Leeds Church Wrecked.
Owing to the destruction caused by
hooligans to St. Philip's Church, Wellington street, Leeds, it was found impossible
for the congregation to worship within its
walls. All the windows on the north side
were broken and the building itself greatly
damaged. The church was built in 1847
and was situated in one of the poorest'
quarters of Leeds.
Boy Thieoes Haoe Long Innings.
Twenty or more cases of theft have been
traced to five boys, aged from twelve to
sixteen, who after baffling the police for
some time have , at last been brought to
justice. < 1
The arrest was due to a workman who
heard unusual sounds outside his workshop.
He went out and found one of the boys
handing confectionery to his companions.
When arrested the boys had in their
possession a "Jimmy" which corresponded
to marks on telephone boxes which had
been broken into, and also with several
letter boxes of business forms. Postal
Orders, which were left open were cashed,
the others were destroyed.
The magistrate said it was the most
extraordinary case he he had ever heard
in court and "sentenced to four years in a
reformatory.

ONLY—ONLY.
Only a glass in the barroom;
Only a single glass ;
Only a lack of courage,
Only the answer, " Yes."
Only an evil companion.
Slyly luring him on;
Only a" free-hearted Willie,"
7 And the fatal work is done.
Only " a little bit tipsy,"
Only bloodshot eyes;
Only a pleading mother,      ,,
Only a wife's surprise.
Only an aching forehead,
Only a bruised face;
Only a broken promise,
Only a deep disgrace.
,   Only a cheerless shanty,
Without fire or wood,
And little half-clad children
Waiting and crying for food;
Only curses for kisses,
Only sorrow. for woe;
.Only a drunken father,
Only an angry blow.
Only.weeping children,
Only a dying wife;
Only another's promise,
Only a drunkard's life.
O, the woe and the anguish
That mortal tongue can tell!
Only a glass in the barroom,
Only a drunkard's hell I
The Cost of Alcoholic Insanity.
Dr. Frederick Paterson, of New York, in
an address before the New York conference of Charities and Correction, declares,
" Alcohol is the chief poison factor in the
production of insanity. Twenty per cent
of all the insane in the United States owe
their condition to alcoholic poison." A
medical expert has calculated that one insane, person is an approximate loss to the
state of $400 per year, hence the actual
loss to the United States amounts to the
enormous sum of $12,000,000 per year.
Value of Human Life Lost to The
State bu Drink.
According to bulletins of the New York
-tate^Department of Public^Health, one
hundred and five .deaths from alcoholism
occured in the state of New York for the
one month of September, 1907. Allowing
each life to' be worth $3,000, an amount
stated by State Commissioner of Public
Health, Dr. Eugene H. Porter, to be a low
estimate, drink was the direct cause of a
pecuniary loss to this one state in one
month of $315,000, or, ^t the sarne rate,
$3,780,000 annually. This leaves entirely
out of consideration 2.287 deaths from
suicide and diseases such as apoplexy,
liver cirrhosis, heart disease and pneumonia
in which alcohol is admittedly a large
causative or contributory (actor.

British Flag at South Pole.
Lieutenant Ernest P. Shackleton, of the
British Navy, who left Cape Boyd last
October on a'^eological trip in the- anti-
arctic regions, has returned' after an
arduous journey to within 111 miles of the
South pole.
At this point, he was 354 miles nearer
the pole than the expedition made by the
Discovery, of which he was an officer,
and the narrative of Lieutenant Shackle-
ton shows that the party endured the
greatest trials and privations.
Marking the spot nearest the South
pole ever obtained by any man, flies the
Union Jack, presented to the explorers by
her majesty the Queen, and guarded all

wilderness. *

-   War With Germany.    ' .   '
There appears to be a feeling abaord
that a conflict between Germany and the
Old country is imminent, and a Toronto
military man atates"thatthere is reason to
believe that the Canadian department of
militia and defence has received a tip
from the War Office, to be' prepared for
squalls. The Germans are ambitious and
have for years been" jealous . of England's
growing power.
, Britain and "Uncle Sara."
In a speech at Victoria _.C, recently,
Rear-Admiral Evans of the U. S. Navy,

constitute a defence for America. The
two nations will always be found fighting
on the same side for the . supremacy of
Anglo-Saxondom.

At the opening of the Italian parliament

A number of patriotic addresses were
given at Vancouver, by members of .the
Board of Trade. "*w
"Let Laurier cable to Asquith: 'Build a
a Dreadnought and send us a bill.'
"And let it not be the first. Canada
can afford to make this an annual contribution. Her import and export trade is
now over $465,000,000 yearly.- Her pro-
portion of contribution fo the navy, figured
at two and one-third per cent., would
amount to $10,847,000, roughly equal to
one Dreadnought per annum.   ,
"The mother country pays nearly seven
dollars per head to imperial defences as
compared with Conada's sixty cents. This
is a humiliating position for Canada, a slur
upon our character.
"If the Dominion doei not see fit to act,
it is a matter,which might even be seriously considered and undertaken by British
Columbia, and we should scarcely feel it.
It would form the best kind of national
insurance and repay itself many times
over." (" " ,,      "
' Not one note of opposition • was heard,
and the above are but a few of the high
notes of patriotism heard at the meeting.
The' following resolution was also telegraphed to the premier.
"Whereas the safety of the. empire and
the peaceful development of commerce in
all parts of it, depends upon the maintenance of the supremacy of the British navy.
And whereas a matter of such vital importance td*Canada should not remain in
doubt'and should be above the exigencies
of party politics in the United- Kingdom.
Be it therefore resolved that this board
is of the, opinion that the Dominion of
Canada should at once offer to the imperial authorities a'sufficient sum toy build a
modern Dreadnought qjF the strongest type.

George, Crown Prince of Servia has renounced , his righf of succession to the
Servian,Throne, on account of a bitter
press campaign in which he_was accused
of being the cause of one of his servant's
death.
_  Sobriety of France.
Statistics for 1907, just issued by the
ministry of finance indicate that "the consumption of alcohol is gradually diminishing. The decrease is more rapid in towns
than in the country.
The prohibition of the sale of spirits in
military canteens is given as one of the
principal reasons for the decrease. Another evil arises to take the place of the
alcohol decrease however, in the rapidly
rising quantity of absinthe consumed.    .
