ife can devote its time to the moral
betterment of other countries!"
And he hopped to London,

to speak_ harshly -_to__her_bandit9 ���

Simple Way to Get "Pep," To Bc

When a man has lost ambition to
"dig in" und stay at things���when lie
complains of headache, fullness in the
right sidc, pains in the shoulder blade
���it's purely  a case of "Liver."
These symptoms invariably indicate a clogged, inactive liver. The
body can't get vid of its wastes, and
the whole system is half paralyzed.
Dr. Hamilton's Pills stimulate, the
liver into aetiviiy in one night, -'eing
a mild vegetable'laxative, thcy produce results in a few hours. The
bilious headache and constipation are
cured, spirits rise, complexion clears,
animation returns. Nothing ir-. the
calendar so efficient for that tired,
lazy feeling as Dr. Hamilton's Pills.
Very mild, don't interfere, with work,
invariably do lots of good. Try a 25c

For Rugs'.es was naturally coiivinc-
ctl that Lorenz had taken advantage
of his early confidence to go to work
" deliberately to get his promotion
away from him. Lorenz would probably never have thought of trying for
tlie managership of the Vienna
branch had he not learned from Rugglcs of the ready response to' his application. Thereafter, Lorenz had
been working quietly for his own
preferment, advancing his claims of
capacity as a 'native of Vienna and
a man thoroughly acquainted from
previous experience with thc retail
shoe trade of that city. Rugglcs
thought of Lorcnz's recent absence.
Without -louiit hc had gone to London to advance his application in
person to thc general manager, who
had his headquarters there, for thc
Walkeasy Shoe Company had stores
in. most of the leading cities of thc
British Isles.

Iipd" thought of himself as a  soldier,
did he seriously consider au
to Mr. Downing. A private soldie
with a sense of wrong might look to
his colonel for redress, but hc would
scarcely think of trying lo carry th.e
matter to his king or president or
minister or secretary of war. Had
Dick Downing been in Europe, Ruggles might have turned to him for
counsel, but Dick was in America.
However, that was not the' point.
Ruggles did not want the benefit of
personal influence from the seats of
the mighty. He wanted merely a
square deal from the company as a'
company. Mc considered his rel'-t-
lions with the Downings���especially
after his call on Ruth���as social rather than professional, so far as his
humble part was concerned. lie
wanted no crumbs falling from the
tables of the rich. All he wanted was
a square deal!
It is possible that if Ruggles had
not gone lo Ruth for advice in regard to his personal affairs, he might
havc taken his grievance in both
hands and shown it to Mr. Downing,
Senior, in which case it is most probable that liis wrongs would havc been
investigated and justice done. Mr.
Downing had lost liis health in thc
examining of just such conditions,
and was cheerfully prepared to die in
at  private'-'  in   thc invading army "of
thc same harness. But Rugglcs could
not do that. Air. Downing was Mr.
Downing, thc president of the company and a great man, but ihc company that hc administered was far
greater than its chief executive. It
was the company that was responsible to him for the injustice done;
not Mr. Downing or Ruth or Dick.
The Downings had done their best to
make the company a good, honest
company, to employees as well as
clients, and if thcy had failed it was
not their fault, but lhat of their unworthy stewards. Ruggles felt that
his quarrel was no with the Downings, but with thc company, and he
was prepared to fight it out as such.
He fell that the Downings had been
deceived in their organization as
much as he.
To" go' to : Ruth or Mr. Downing
for restitution was quite impossible.
It smacked too much of boot-licking

but I'll bet I could give him something- besides shoes to think about for
a couple of days. And thai darn Durand, too."
In this opinion Ruggles was quite
a little beneath the medium size, but
clean living aud exercise had developed a frame whieh was solid of bone
and muscle. He was also a very useful man with .his lists, having gone
iu for boxing when living in New
York, where he had belonged to the
Y.M.C.A. and practiced nightly in the
gymnasium.
It was about ten o'clock when he
entered the store, where the lirst. person on whom his eyes happened to
fall was llie young English surgeon
of the British Red Cross, whom lie
had met the previous morning on the
Avenue du Pois dc Boulogne, and
who was in the act of purchasing a
pair of high hunting-boots. He did
not see Ruggles, who, not wishing to
disturb him, passed to the other sidc
of the store, where he came upon
the .manager'and Lorenz, standing at
thc door of the i.llice engaged in conversation.
Ruggles'.-, <:yes, red-rimmed from
lack of sleep, blazed up at the sight,
and he could feel thc blood pumping
into his head. His "mouth seemed
suddenly lo become hot and dry and
his muscles tighten. He. had no desire lo make a scene, especially as
there was a fair sprinkling of customers in the place for that early hour,
and his' years of training-had made
polite shop manners almost a second
nature with him. But the sight of
these two men who had so traitorously used hini aw"akencd in his system
some quality long latent, and which
now came boiling up and imperiously demanding expression.
Durand'catight sight of Ruggles as
he. approached. Perhaps at the same
time hc saw trouble, in 1hc congested
eyes, for the pink color faded fiom
his sleek face. But he looked at
Rugglcs with cold  disapproval.-
"Why are you so late.?---hc demanded, in his excellent English.' "We
havc had some customers who havc
been kept' waiting."    '
"Oh, have  you?'-'.'Rugglcs
A Programme
Of Reconstruction
Promote a Good Understanding Between Capital and Labor
Under the second heading, i.e., conservation of our human resources, wc
should (1) make up our minds individually to do some useful work and
lo do it thoroughly; (2) promote thc
better organization of industry- from
a social standpoint, in other words, a
good understanding' between capital
and labor; (3) organize our systems
of transportation, storage, and distribution so that products may be conveyed from producer to consumer
with the minimum of effort and expense;, (4) encourage the' work of
soldiers' civil re-establishment by
practical sympathy with thc returned
soldier; (5) as voters and citizens, insist on efficiency in public hygiene
and sanitation; (6) reduce our abnormal infantile mortality; ancl (7) support all sound schemes of tcft-n planning and better housing, and never
relax our efforts till every family in
the country lias a decent, home to live
iu.
The aims enumerated above embody a programme of reconstruction.
Some of them lie outside the field
of thc commission of conservation,
but most of them are within thc
���scope of the .work that it exists to
promote.��� From    Conservation.

What  Is  the True Relation of Cost

Operation  of Roads
There is in Canada current opinion
lhat-it costs thc Government $1.03'to
get SI  gros?  revenue  from  thc  railroads  which  have  been   emancipated
from the' capitalistic class.    A. defrcit
of. $50,000,000 in 1919 is thc forecast.

glared belligerently at his enemy,
whose saturnine face had. become

in fact, lhe face of a rat, a large,

New Water Systems
Regina, Sask.���After a lapse of
several ycars, thc proposal to.secure
a water supply for thc cities-of Moose
Jaw and Regina from ihc south
branch of tlic Saskatchewan river has
been revived. Both cities suffer from
lack of water" and although the citizens arc assured that there is a plentiful .supply available through tlie present water systems?" lli-e fact remains
that on many occasions lhe pressure
is inadequate to lift water above 1hc
first floors. '������'���'-.
The present water '- supply������- of Regina is derived from artesian wells,
aud the water is extremely hard, so
much so that the -animal'expense, in
replacing pipes and plumbing fixtures is very great. To pipe water
from the Saskatchewan river would
mean a-, line of about 100 miles, but
lit has been estimated lhat the annual
charges to the cities served would not
be any more than under the present
system.
The Board of Trade has appointed
a_ committee' to discuss the question
with the City Council and live Provincial   Government.   ���

For Rugbies was naturally convinced that Lorenz had taken advantage
of his early confidence to go to work
deliberately to get his promotion
away from liim. Lorenz would probably never havc thought of trying for
thc managership of the Vienna
branch had he not learned from Rugglcs of thc ready response to' his application. Thereafter, Lorenz had
been working quietly for his own
preferment, advancing his claims of
capacity as a "native of Vienna and
:\ man thoroughly acquainted from
previous experience with thc retail
shoe trade of that city. Rugglcs
thought of Lorcnz's recent absence.
Without .loutit he had gone to London to advance his application in
person to the general manager, who
bad his headquarters there, for tlic
Walkeasy Shoe Company had stores
in most of the leading cities, of the
British Isles. _,'      '
But that which ate like acid into
Ruggles's  soul was the fact that the

American trade. He was not the ser
vant of the public, to whom hc sold
shoes; lie was not tlic servant of the
great industrial organization which
was destined to carry its country's
flag to where Hast becomes West and
West Past. He was nobody's servant. He was an enlisted man in the
great army of American commerce,
and as such entitled to his chevrons.
It never entered Ruggles's head to
go to Ruth in his distress. Neither
did he seriously consider an appeal
lo Mr. Downing. A private soldier
with a sense of wrong might look to
his colonel for redress, but hc would
| scarcely think of trying lo carry vh_c
matter to his king or president or
minister or secretary oT war. Had
Dick Downing been in Europe, Rugglcs might have, turned to liim for
counsel, but Dick was in America.
However, that was not the point.
Ruggles did not want the benefit of
personal influence from the seats of
thc mighty. He wanted merely a
square deal from the company as a"
company. He considered his rel-i-
tions with the Downings���especially
after his call on Ruth���as social rather than professional, so far as his
humble part was concerned. He
wanted no crumbs falling from the
tables of thc rich. All he -wanted was
a square deal!
Il is possible that if Ruggles had
not gone to Ruth for advice in regard to liis personal affairs, he might
havc taken his grievance iu bolh
hands and shown it to.Mr. Downing,
Senior, in which case it is most probable that his wrongs would have been
investigated and justice done. Mr.
Downing had lost his health in thc
examining of just such conditions,
aud was cheerfully prepared lo die iu
the same harness. But Ruggles could
not do that. Mr. Downing was Mr.
Downing, the president of the company and a great man, but thc company tliat hc administered was far
greater than its chief executive. It
was the company that was responsible lo him for the injustice done;
not Mr. Downing or Rulh or Dick.
The Downings had done their best to
make the company a good, honest
company, to employees as well as
clients, and if thcy had failed it was
not their fault, but that of thcir unworthy stewards. Ruggles felt that
his quarrel was no with the Downings, but with the company, and he
was prepared lo fight it out as such.
Hc felt, that the Downings had been j beady eyes glittered,
deceived    in  their    organization
much as he.
[but I'll bet I could give him something- besides shoes to think about for
a couple of days. And that darn Durand, loo."
In this opijiion Ruggles was quite
a little beneath tlic medium size, but
clean living and exercise had developed a frame which was solid ot bone
and muscle. He was also a very useful mail wilh his fists, having gone
in for boxing when living in New-
York-, where he had'belonged to the
Y.M.C.A. and practiced nightly in the
gymnasium.
It was about ten o'clock when he
entered ihe store, .where the first, person on whom his eyes happened lo
fall was lhe young English surgeon
of the British Red Cross, whom he
had met the previous morning on the
..Avenue du Bois de Boulogne, -and
who was in tlie act ol" purchasing a
pair of high luiming-boots. He did
not see Rugglcs, who, nol wishing to
disturb him, passed to the cither side
of thc store, where he came upon
the manage?" and Lorenz, standing at
thc door of the ollice engaged in conversation.
Ruggles's eyes, red-rimmed from
lack of sleep, blazed up at the sight,
and he could feel thc blood pumping
into his head. Mis mouth seemed
suddenly lo become hot and dry and
his muscles tighten. He. had no desire to make a scene, especially as
there was a fair sprinkling of customers in the place for that early hour,
and liis ycars of training-had made
polite shop manners almost a second
nature with him. But the sight of
these two ni'cn who had so traitorously used hini awakened in his system
some quality long latent, and which
now came boiling up and imperiously demanding  expression.
Durand caught sight of Ruggles as
lie approached. Perhaps at the same
timc he saw trouble iu the congested
eyes, for the pink color faded fioin
his sleek face. But he looked at
Ruggles with cold disapproval. ���
"Why are you so latc.?-^~hc demanded, in his excellent English." "We
have had some customers who have
been kept' wailing."
"Oh, have you
ed. "Then what's the matter with
Lorenz waiting on them?" And he
glared belligerently at his enemy,
whose saturnine face had. become
suddenly venomous. It suggested,
in fact, thc face of a rat, a large,
combative,    cornered    rat,    and    his
Rugglcs     rets [called  his  dream,  which   did  not:   go
far to help  the situation.
A Programme
Of Reconstruction!
Promote a Good Understanding Between Capital and Labor
Under the second heading, i.e., conservation of onr human resources, wc
should (1) make up our minds individually to do some useful work and
to (lo it thoroughly; (2) promote the
better organization of industry- from
a social standpoint, in other words, a
good understanding' between capital

How Long Can They Do It?
What  Is thc  True Relation' of Cost
of    Revenue    in    Government     ������'
Operation of Roads
There is in Canada current opinion
that it costs the Government $1.03 to
get $1 gross revenue from thc railroads which'have-been emancipated
from the capitalistic class. A. deficit
of, $50,000,000 in'1919 is the forecast.
This straightway gives rise .to conjecture as to what the true relation
of cost and revenue would bc if some
courageous administration readied
down, to the bottom oi our Govern-
Ruggles   answer-j mcnt operation of the roads.
Thanks iu part to thc pcculiaiities
of thc Canadian situation, the private
Grand Trunk and Canadian Pacific,
have contributed nobly to the Government's -experiment in railroad operation. Tliis and oilier causes have
steadily lifted the percentage, of cost
to gross revenue. Today it is 89 per
cent, for the Grand Trunk'and SI per
cent, for'the Canadian Pacific. Thc
percentage thus actually discloses thc
shocking scandal of surplus,, 'rather
than the uplifting, inspiration 0f de-

Water Supply For
Saskatchewan Cities
Moose   Jaw  ancl   Regina   May   Have
New Water Systems
Regina,   Sask.���Aftcr   a   lapse      of
several ycars, thc proposal to,secure
a water supply for the cities of Moose
I Jaw    and Regina    from    thc    south
branch of the Saskatchewan river has
been, revived.   Bolhcities suffer from
lack of water, and although the citizens arc assured that there is a plentiful.supply available through the pre
sent water systems?* the fact remains
that on many occasions the pressure
is inadequate lo lift water above the
first lloors.
The present water supply������ of Regina is derived from artesian wells,
and the water is extremely hard, so
much so that the annual 'expense in
replacing pipes and plumbing fixtures is very great. To pipe water
from the Saskatchewan river would
mean a line of about 100 miles, but
it has been estimated that the annual
charges to the cities served would not
be any more lhan under the present
system. ,
"The Board of Trade has appointed
a committee lo discuss the question
with the City .Council and lire Provincial   Government.:

great hopes have been, entertained in

Germany's critical financial position,
it is highly unsafe to dispatch largc
tiuaniities of merchandise lo that
country without payment iin cash, and
as this condition is rarely complied
with very tittle business is being

Doctors now advocate an entirely
ncw inclhod for treating bronchitis
and irritable, throat. Stomach dosing
is no longer necessary. ' ~-
The mpst-approved treatment consists of a healing vapor resembling
the pure air of the Adirondacks.
This soothing vapor is full of gcrm-
(lesl'royin'g substances, a'nd at the
same time is a powerful healing
agent. It is sent lo thc bronchial
tubes and lungs through a skillfully
devised inhaler that can be carried in
the vest pocket. Simplicity itself is
the keynote of this splendid treatment.
CATARRHOZONE is the name
of this wonderful invention that is
daily, curing chronic cases of weak
throat, bronchitis and catarrh. Every
breath through thc inhaler is laden
with soothing,' healing substances
that destroy all diseased conditions
in the breathing organs, it can't fail
io cure because it goes where 'the
trouble really exists, and doesn't attempt lo cure an illness in thc head
or throat by means of medicine taken'
into llie stomach. Catarrhozone is a
direct breathable scientific cure.
There is no sufferer from a grippy
cold or any winter ill, that won't
find a cure in Catarrhozone, which is
employed by physicians, ministers,
lawyers and public men throughout
many foreign lands. Large size lasts
two months and cost $1.00 and is
guaranteed; small size SOc, sample
size 25c, all storekeepers and druggists, or the Catarrhozone Co.,

Government Explains
Papal Peace Proposal
Britain Issues White Paper Showing
Germany-Conceded Nothing.
London.��� A "white paper" issued
by the government deals /with tlie
papal peace proposal to the belliger-'
c'nts in August,' 1917: The: Pope, in
bis note, said that before everything,
thc fundamental point must be lhat
the nioral force of right should be
substituted for thc material force of
force, and pointed out that this would
entail a general agreement for the
simultaneous, and reciprocal reduction,
of armaments and thc institution of
thc principle of arbitration.
Thc ponlifT stipulated for complete
evacuation" of Belgian and French
territory with the complete political,
military and economic independence
of Belgium, restitution of.lhe German
colonies and complete freedom of
the seas.
��� Foreign Minister Balfour, the white
paper continues, in acknowledging
the Pope's note, intimated that until
the central empires and lhcir allies
stated officially how far tlicy were
willing to go in the matter of reparation and restitution, aud announce
thcir war aims and offered effective
guarantees against a repetition of
the horrors of thc war, thc Briiish
government considered it most unlikely any progress toward peace
could bc made. Thc French government intimated that its views coincided wilh those expressed by Mr.
Balfour.
Dr. George Michaclis, then German
chancellor, replying for Germany,
subscribed to thc idea of ��� enforced
arbitration, the limitation of armaments and freedom of thc seas, but
said no word on lhc subject of evacuation of- Belgium and France or
Belgian independence, lie merely expressed readiness for peace on conditions compatible wilh . justice and
corresponding to the situation.
This and thc Austrian reply, which
was similarly couched, wcrc sent to"
Premier Lloyd George and formally
acknowledged. There the mailer
ended, the "while paper" says.

Russia Provided Poland With Human
Factor of Great Importance.
An odd bit of commercial history
conies to light with the granting of
citizenship to Jews in Poland, and
shows how Russia, in expelling the-
race from Moscow, provided Poland
with a human factor of great importance in developing her own industrial
resources. Politically Poland lay
helpless in the grip of her powerful
neighbor, resisting as best she-might
that neighbor's detcnnina.lion- to destroy the. last-.vestige of Polish na-.
tional existence. Industrially, on the
other-hand, her coal, and iron .ore
districts had-developed Polish centers
of/manufacture superior to those-of
Russia; but dependent, for success on
the/sale ���6f- their products in/Russian
markets'.-, Jews came from Moscow
who were familiar- with "Russian trade
conditions, had already established
personal trade relations with Russian
cities,., and were"'" admirably fitted to
"develop _a""""co"niiiicTcial "pro'gramr be;'-
tween the two. countries. These men
became, -the natural .intermediaries'
between Poles and -Russians in business, and their expulsion from Russia
is doubtless one reason for thc pros;

Proportional Representation
���No. 2
In la'jl week'sN.irliclc on the above
subject some of the inequalities of
our present .system of electing representatives to public office were pointed out, the growth of the I'.R. method of election noted, and one or two
principles underlying that method
outlined. In conclusion it was stated
that an endeavor would bc madc to
explain the method of voting and
election in this week's article.
First of all, let it bc lcpeatcd and
emphasized that it is the essence of
representative government that every voter should" bc lcprcscntcd in
the representative assembly. If a
^considerable proportion of thc electorate comc lo feel that thcy have
- no voice in thc Government, thc distance is short to that dangerous slate
o.f mind which' regards political processes as futile and hopeless. Thc
world today, Canada included, requires  to  guard  against this.
The theory of Proportional Representation is that each-considerable
party or group of opinion should bc
represented in parliament, or legislature, or-municipal council, in proportion to its voting strength���that majorities may rule and minorities bc
heard. How docs Proportional Representation put this theory into practice? -'The method -used is what is
known as the transferable vote.
When" thc ballot with the list of
candidates for an office, say a municipal council, is presented, thc elector, instead of maiking "X" after his
choice, or choices if more than one
is to bc elected, as at picscnt, votes
:is follows:
(a)   By  placing tlic  figure  1  aftcr
- his   favorite   candidate.       Thc  voter
may also:
(b)'Place thc figure 2 opposite his
second choice;
(c) Place the figure 3 after liis
third choice, and so on, numbei ing
as man}' candidates as hc pleases in
lhc order of his prcfcicncc, and may
even so indicate his preference for a
larger number of candidates than are
actually to bc elected.
A candidate, to ensure election,
need not poll a majority, but only a
certain proportion of the votes cast,
called a quota. This quota is thc
" smallest number of votes required to
ensure election. For example, in a
constituency electing only one member, it is not-necessary even now that
 :i caudidalc-bhould-pol! all th.e votes;
if hc obtains one more than half hc
secures a majority and is elected, because no One else can_poll so many.
Similarly, iinik* P.R., it would bc necessary iu a onc-mciiibcr constituency for the candidate elected to secure a clear majoiity. lu a two-
member constituency, a candidate
vvho obtains one more-than a third
would bc elected, for only two candidates can each poll more than a
third. If three members are to be
elected, it would take one more vole
ih;in a fourth of the votes cast to ensure election.
This quota necessary to election is,
therefoie, found hy dividing thc total
number of votes cast by one more
than thc number of representatives to
bc elected and adding one. For example, assuming lhal there ������-��> three
���randidaU'S- lo lu- elected, and the loud vole cast was G20. The latter fitj-
ntc divided hy four (that is, one more
than the number to hc elected) gi%*cs
155, and tliis, plus one, gives 156,
���which would be the quota, and as not
inoie lhan three candidates could secure that number, regardless of how
many might be in thc field, those
three would hc. elected.
Thc next question is: TIow aro the
voles   counted  and  transfer)cd?
(a) The iirst preference votes obtained by cacli candidate are noted���
that is, the candidates opposite whose
names the figure 1 ha> been marked
.hy .the \ otcrs.
(b) Thc quota is asicitaincd in the
n...:;:'cr   outlined   above.
(c) Candidates, if any, who havc
received the quota, or more than the
quota, arc  declared elected.
(tl) Surplus votes of those candidates who have icccived more than
tlicir quota-arc transferred, in strict
proportions, to the unclected candidates indicated as thc next preferences by the voters (that is, candidates
having tiie figure 2 oppostc their
names).
(c) Any ffiithci candidates who, as
tin. u'Mill of such transfer of second
prcfcunccs have received the necessary  quota aic declared elected.
(f) Tlic candidates lowest on the
poll are theu eliminated one aftcr another, and the votes thcy receive are
transferred in accordance v\ itli the
next choice of the electors indicated
thereon. This process is continued
until the required number of candidates havc obtained a quota, or the
number of candidates nol eliminated
is reduced to the number of seats
\acant.'
It will bc seen, therefore, that
whereas undci our present system
the voter who marks a ballot for a
canddate who is at thc foot of the
poll completely loses his representation in thc public body for whicli thc
election is held, under Proportional
Representation he, having failed to
secure the election of his first choice,
has his ballot transferred to his second choice; if his second choice fails
of election, his vote is transferred to
his third choice, and so on. Thus
cvciy \oter, in the final analysis, is
represented by a representative for
whom lie-recorder a prcfeiencc. Surely, a more democratic and fairer way
than obtains under our present system.
(Xcxt week some examples of how
"P.R. has worked out where it has
been liicd will be given, and possibly
some of the objections raised against
P.R.  answered.)

In lhc Piahie Provinces the dry

More German
Trickery
Herr Noske Demands Right to Maintain 400,000 Troops During
Winter
It is good news that Marshal Foch
is 'keeping a sharp eye ou Geimany
and her .Ministers. The treatment
of thc Poles in Upper Silesia is a
matter that requires his attention,
and even more impoitant than this
are the statements which thc German War Minister, licrr Noskc, has
just made to. a correspondent of thc
Paris Matin.
licrr Noskc demands the rig lit lo
maintain 400,000 German troops with
the colois dm ing the winter, though
by the peace terms the German aimy
must before April bc reduced to 100,-
000 men. His first excuse is that the
German labor market cannot absorb
300,000 men, yet almost in the ��;.inc
bieath he calls for thc return by the
Allies of more than halt a million
prisoners taken in lhc war. If there
i.s work for them, there must be work
for the 300,000 troops who ought now
to be demobilized, and if not, why
do^s he want them back? liis second excuse is that Geimany needs "i
large armed force because theic is
internal daugei from Bolshevism.
Bul Bolshevism, as Count Broclc-
dorff-Ranlzau told thc National Assembly recently in a sccict session,
"is not dangerous lo Germany." lt
K a bogey which is trolled -out
whenever German Ministers want to
dupe the Allies and obtain concessions from  thcm.
Wc hope, therefore, that the Allies will bc perfectly firm and allow
no tricks. h_\cn more impudent is
licers" accused of war crimes,
impossible lo hand over German of-
fficcrs'' accused of war\ ciimcs,
though by the 228th article of'the
treaty lliey must bc so surrcndcicd.
Uc pielcnds that no ciimc has yet
been imputed lo any Gciman officer,
forgetting lhat the Bntish Admiialty
has named five Gci man naval officers
responsible foi ciucl murders in the
submarine campaign and for lhc
sinking of hospital ships; that tlic
Ficnch Government has already named two officers responsible for the
Lille depot Unions; and that ihc Belgian Government is prcpaiiug to call
for the stiriendcr of Major Mantcuf-
fcl, guilty of thc massacres at Lou-
vain, and Major SommerJield, guilty
of the massacios at Tcrmondc, with

How the last
Victory Loan
was spent
T3EFORE buying Victory Bonds again you may want to
know how Canada used the money you loaned her last
year.
Canada borrowed the money to carry on the war and to provide credits for Great Britain and our Allies.
QONSIDERABLY
Loan 1918 was
more
than
one-half of the Victory
spent on our soldiers. This included
$312,900,000, for paying them, feeding them, bringing them
home, separation allowances to their dependents, maintenance
of medical services and vocational training schools.
For
Demobilization
$
59,000,000 of the Victory Loan 1918 was paid on account
v of authorized Soldiers' gratuities.
9,000,000 was spent at Halifax for relief and reconstruction
after the disaster,
For Trade
Extension
Other disbursements were not, strictly speaking, expenditures, but National Re-investments.
To Great Britain for example:
$173,500,000 was loaned for the purchase  of our
wheat and cereals.      0
$9,000,000 for our fish.
$30,000,000 for other Foodstuffs.
$2,900,000 for Canadian built ships.
$5,500,000 to pay other British obligations in Canada.
Making in all $220,900,000 advanced to Great Britain.
To our Allies, we loaned $8,200,000 for the purchase of
Canadian foodstuffs, raw material and manufactured
products.
The. Re-investments will be paid back to Canada in due
time, with interest.   .    .
These credits were absolutely necessary to secure the orders
for Canada because cash purchases were impossible.
They have had the effect of tremendously helping agricultural and industrial workers to tide over the depression that
would have followed the Armistice, had we not made these
credit loans.
As far as money is concerned, 1919 has been, and'is. still-
just as much a war year as 19.^8. .Our main expenditures
for war cannot be. completed until well on into 1920. Thus
another Victory Loan is necessary���Get ready to buy.

One of the Greatest Helps to Good Telephone Service
Telephoning is regarded as so easy tliat many people do
not take the trouble to see that they telephone correctly.
One should speak directly into the instrument, with the lips
but a short distance away. When that is' done, the voice does
not nedd to bc loud, and moreover the person at the other end
can hear distinctly.
When children do so much telephoning,  it would be well
. to instruct them to telephone properly.
