Conservative Association on Monday  night partook partly,of a social  nature. The chief feature of the  evening was an address by Dr. A.  G. McGuire, M.P.P., who discussed the question of granting further aid to railways.  In Nthe course of. his remarks Pr.  McGuire favored the appointment  of an independent commission  before any further aid was given, and urged a thorough investigation before anything further  should be done in this direction.  "I think we should know  whWeX^very dollar-which has  been advanced to the Pacific  Great Eastern Railway has j������oue  before any further aid is granted," he said.  Mr.i C. E.

Reports for  the past year were presented  from a number of the organizations. Those read showed a very  favorable year despite the heavy  financial burden under which the  community is operating. The  church has an active membership of. 1028. The Boardj>f Managers reported a favorable year,  and the discussion on the budget  for this year proved that the interest of the membership is very  keen. Since the induction of Rev.  A. E. Mitchell as pastor of this  congregation in August last, the  work of the church has prospered exceedingy, and the future  seems a bright one indeed forthis  church. The new managers appointed to the 1916 board are  Messrs. H. Hilker, John Riding-  ton, G. W. Ledingham, Robert  Watson. R. McMillan, J. Abernethy and Dr. W. D. Murray.    -  Owing to the vast amount of  business still to be transacted in  connection with the work of the  church, and the additional reports still to be' heard, the meeting was adjourned for two  weeks.

Fully   Explained   Serial  Bond By-law  ��������� Reeve Hugh Fraser, who was  not called upon by the Burnaby  electors to contest the reeveship  this year, addressed Vancouver  holders of Burnaby property in'  the Labor Temple last week prior  to the elections. In a lengthy  address Reeve Fraser advocated  the passing of the Burnaby .Treasury Redemption By-law, and the  electors by a handsome majority  followed his advice^ on- Saturday  last.  It is now possible /that the  bonded indebtedness o������ Burnaby  can be reduced from $3,003,000  to $2,207,000, and the per capita  debt from $212 to $156 if the  contention of Reeve Fraser is  correct. He dealt in a lucid manner with the proposal to cancel  thp whole of the unsold Burnaby  40-year sinking fund.  m  S *    (J   J  > -1  *1  -   Yr.  * 4*l  '' x if  X ' j.

Fairview  Cadet Corps Concert  A grand patriotic concert will  be given by the King Edward  High School Cadet Corps in the  auditorium on Friday, January  28,' at 8 p.m. The corps will be  aided by the High School orchestra and by students from,  Lord Tennyson school.  Scottish Concert  The Y.P.S.C.E. of Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian church announce a grand Scottish Concert  for Tuesday evening next, January 25th (Burns' Night) in the  school room of the church.

The  children in all classes were taught  to knit and fifty-three face cloths  were handed in by the smaller  children. A number of mufflers  have been knitted, two of which  were handed in to the society,  the others being sent to brothers  or fathers at the front. In the  intermediate grade sewing classes, eye-pads and khaki handkerchiefs were sewn for the Grand-  view branch. Several pairs of sox  were also knitted in these class-  es. ' For these the material was  given by the children. In order  to work on a* larger scale, however, the need of a society in the  school itself was felt, and a  meeting was held to organize it  on January 7. At this meeting,  to which all the girls of the five  upper classes were invited, Miss  R. Rines was elected honorary  president, Miss Rita Oakley, president, and Miss Mary Larsen,  secretary-treasurer.  ���������  It was decided to give an at  home in- the school on Friday  evening for the purpose of raising funds for the purchase of materials. The school society is, of  course, only an auxiliary to the  Grandview branch of the Red  Cross Society.  Rev. Dr. Seager will preach in  All Saints' Anglican church on  .Sunday evening.  Cecil   Rhodes School   News  The cold weather has brought  but some excellent hockey players,  the school having been successful in defeating the Tennyson  school in two games. The score  of the first game was 5-1, while  that of the second was 13-3. The  boys intend to play more games  and are now negotiating with the  Lord Roberts school for a game  at the Arena.  The rifle team has been unfortunate in losing three of its reliable shots since Christmas, two  havings transferred to other  schools and one having left for  Seattle. The team has been very  successful in its shooting so far.  Its scores for the fall term were  as follows: 240, 207, 225, 236  and 227, thus giving the team an  average of 227.  The pupils and staff of the  school regret very much the loss  of Miss Anstie, who having been  teaching in the Cecil Rhodes  school for three years with  marked success, -left-''-at Ghrist-  mas^to. be"married. They are glad  to welcome in Miss Anstie's place  Miss Currie, formerly of the  Fairview school. .���������  Grippe and measles are responsible for a considerable drop in  the attendance, especially in the  junior classes. Even the staff is  not immune. Miss Perkins, teaeh-  er of Division III., was absent  for a few days suffering from  grippe, but is now able to be  back;at work.  Burnaby Council Has Taken  Office  The council of 1915 concluded  the lyea-rJs' business on. Monday  last "and the new council were  duly sworn in by Magistrate''  Beatty. In his address of welcome Reeve Fraser laid spenial  stress on the financial situation.  saying it was necessary to authorize only such expenditures  for which  money is-f available.  The , splendid majority secured  for the financial by-law is regarded as a personal triumph  for Reeve Fraser.  <   y.w  -    -    ���������������. ,*  .- X- . Xil  The Woman's Forum of Burnaby held its usual January  meeting on Friday last in More-  ton Hall, Edmonds, the president, Mrs. J. Stuart Jamieson, in  the_ chair. A__nominating comr.  mittee was appointed to report  at the annual meeting on the  third Tuesday in February. It  was decided to have an address  on laws for women in British  Columbia given on that occasion.  Mrs. Watson' read several interesting letters from boys at the  front, thanking the Christmas  committee for the boxes sent.  South Vancouver'  High School Notes  The South Vancouver high  school is starting one teacher  short this year, as Miss Taylor,  who was in charge of the preliminary classes, resigned at Christmas. ..���������"--x ������������������  Owing to la grippe the attendance is exceedingly poor. On account of the snow the school has  been unable to organize any outdoor games. It is a source of  much disappointment that there  is no accommodation for indoor  basketball.  The ladies of St. Andrew's Parish gave another of their delightful dances last night in the Parish Hall,.50th and. George streets.  Dancing was indulged in from 9  to 12 and an unusually fine orchestra added to the delights of  the evening. Refreshments were  served.  t '' xl Friday, January 21, 1916.  /**=*-*  Election Results on the Mainland  t  It has been many years since  the city of Vancouver witnessed  a more hard fought election than  that of last week, when Alderman McBeath was chosen by the  electors from a field of five candidates to represent them as the  chief magistrate for 1916. The  campaign was bitterly fought out  and many factions worked unceasingly for their respective  candidates from early morning  until the poll closed.  The result of the election of  the mayoral candidates, while it  occasioned some disappointment  in -a few quarters, was not  .on the whole a surprise. The new-  . ly elected mayor had the support  of. the Woman's Forum and other  representative moral reform bodies, and he received a strong prohibition vote owing to his stand  against the liquor interests which  he used throughout his campaign.  The people apparently figured  that as chairman of the finance  committee, in 1915, he was better fitted to handle the reins of  mayor during the coming year.  Mr. McBeath's majority, considering the large field of candidates, is a decisive one.  Almost equally bitter as the  fight for the mayoralty, but lacking the mud slinging episodes,  were the aldermanic contests in  several of the wards. Perhaps  the keenest battle was that  waged in Ward IV, where Dr.  J. Vf. Mcintosh defeated Aid.  Joseph Hoskins. Alderman, 0. E.  Mahon, in Ward V, was forced  to call on his last reserves to win  from Aid. C. N. James, while in  Ward VI Aid. Gale succeeded,  with the strong support of the  J Woman's Forum, to win from  Ex-Aid. Elliott, One of the surprises of the day was the majority Aid. Kirk received over Mr.  J. D. Byrne in Ward I.  Ex.-Ald. Geo. Cottrell made an  unsuccessful attempt to win over  Aid. Hamilton in Ward II.  The results of the mayoralty  vote are as follows.  McBeath, 3,122; Kirkpatrick,  2,488; Martin, 1,908; Hepburn,  1,502; McNeill, 1234.

From the first, intense interest  had been aroused in the elections,  as during the past year events  had been of an exceedingly stirring nature in the municipal  chamber. The result of the election was, for that reason, not  entirely a surprise.  Only two of last year's representatives on the council were  re-elected���������Councillor Russell in  Ward two, and Councillor Rowling in Ward six.  The Social Service Council is  said to have been responsible  for the election of Mr. Winram  and Coun. Grimmett in Ward  four. Those elected on the Gold  ticket were Mr. Pollock in Ward  three, Mr. James in Ward five,  and Mr. Mengel in Ward seven  Messrs. Neelands, Robertson  and Stevens were elected school  trustees, the .former being returned to the board for the third  term. There were 234 spoilt ballots.

Mr. Winram, following his  election, thanked the electors for  the honor shown him and urged  the large number of young voters to join the colors and do their  bit at the front.  After the official return, Mr.  Gold briefly addressed the meeting saying, among other things,  that he considered the reports  for the past year had been grossly, misleading, and that he had  never seen a municipality thrive  where ministers ruled. The  church and the press were prominent, among the causes of his  defeat. Hisc intentions had been  good, he said, but he had probably taken the burden of office  too seriously. He wished the new  council every success.  We give you best value in Groceries, Teas and Coffees.

Twiss,  The Canadian war expenditure  is mounting with the increase in  the size of the army. It has now  reached a total of almost $150,-  000,000, increasing the national  debt from $332,000,000 to $515,-  000,00. The expenditure of war  for the month of December exceeds that for the month of November by about $6,000,000, the  total fbr December being $19,-  233,943. This is at the rate of  nearly $240,000,000 per year, and  it is probable that during the  coming fiscal year the monthly  disbursements for war will exceed each other by almost as  much as the . December outlay  exceeded the November.  For the nine months of the fiscal year ending December 31st  last, the expenditure, for war  amounted to $85,748,898. The expenditure for the first eight  months of the' war amounted to  about $61,000,000," the total "sO  far thus being about $146,000,-  000! The national debt now  stands at $515,844,910, an increase of $13,475,851 over the  preceding month.  The revenue for the first nine  months of the fiscal year shows a  very satisfactory increase. The  total for that period was $122,-  000,000, as against $99,000,000 for  the corresponding period in 1914.  This represents a total increase  of about $23,000,000. Of this increase, customs was responsible  for $13,000,000, excise for $149,-  000, postoffice for about $3,500,-  000 and miscellaneous for about  $395,000, while increased traffic  earnings on the government railways have been responsible for  about $6,000,000 of the increase.  There has been a retrenchment  during the nine months of about  $11,000,000 in expenditures on  the' consolidated fund account.  On the capital account, including  railway subsidies, there has been  a retrenchment of about $5,000,-  000. This makes a total retrenchment during the nine,months of  about $16,000,000. Part of this,  of course, is due to the turning  over to the war appropriation  funds of militia estimates totalling about $8,000,000, while there  is a difference of over $2,000,-  000 in subsidies to railways.  There is a surplus over all expenditures exclusive of war' of  $21,000,000.  Phone Seymour 8171  STOREY & CAMPBELL  518-520 BEATTY ST.  VANCOUVER, B.C.

THE CONSUMERS' LEAGUE  It is a matter.of genuine gratification to observe that the British Columbia Consumers' League, organized only ten months  ago, has passed the 8000 mark  in membership. All its members  are pledged to give preference  to goods manufactured ,in this  province. When one considers  that, over 80per_cent. of the real  purchasers are women and that  women are in the majority in  this League, there is good reason  to expect that some of the forty-  five million dollars sent out of  this province last year for imported articles will be retained in  British Columbia.  One of the latest objects of the  League is to discourage and prevent the employment of German  labor in the province, either by  taxing employers who employ  Germans, or by creating so  strong a public sentiment against  such practices that it will prove  a poor policy for any firm to  follow. The League is presided  over by Mrs. J. C. Kemp, 23  Broadway West, who is prominent in Mount Pleasant social circles. _���������   RUSSIANS   DETERMINED  Nicholas Riabouchinsky, newspaper editor, capitalist and* broker, of Moscow, Russia, who is in  America as representative of several Russian capitalists who are  preparing to build big munition  factories in the land of the Czar,  gives his views as to what will  happen when the present war is  over. "The war," he says, "will  be fought to a finish as far as  Russia is concerned. From the  upper classes down to the common people, the sentiment is for  war until German militarism is  forever   crushed.   Germany    has  said Russia   wants   to make   a]  peace   privately with   Germany.  Such reports are without founda-|  tion."  Speaking of the probable out-]  come of the war, Mr. Riabouchinsky says, "no matter who gets  Constantinople, Roumania is ex-|  eluded. Even if. the Germans get  it, Roumania will have no portl  at all. J am positive that Russia will" offer; "if she has not-already done so, Bessarabia, on the  Black Sea, to Roumania. She is  willing to do this to punish Bulgaria. Unless Belgium and Poland  are returned in good order England will keep the seas closed to  Germany. If ten years���������or forever, it will be the same. England says Germany can fight on'  land all she wants, but the sea  will be closed to her as long as ���������  she keeps Poland and Belgium.  Russia, for her part, will fight;  until she gets into Germany and  gets back Poland���������there is no  doubt of this. When the war is  over you will find Serbia will get  Macedonia and a part of Bulgaria, also her own independence. Russia wants Constantinople and she is. going to get it.  The end of the war will see the  end of the Turk in Europe. Bulgaria will probably be made to  pay a large contribution to Serbia, but will get Adrianople.  Italy will take a great part from  Austria. Montenegro will get  Scutari. The principle of the allies is to see that the map of  Europe is altered no more than  necessary from what it was before the war. I do not approve  of any peace until German militarism is crushed. Germany is  otherwise a danger to the world.  She is like an alcoholic. She  might swear off for a while, but  she would reel again toward the-  same   poison.       X Friday, January 21, 1018.  Civil Servants to Join the Colors  Who, more than the civil ser-  tvants, under the provincial gov-  Kernment of this province, have  [shown the same self-denial in go-  ling to the country's aid during  [these trying times? The "Life"  (jobs of the government employ-  i ees did not count for much, when  the call to arms came.  British Columbia should be  proud of the civil service in this  province, for as a body they have  shown themselves to be not laggard in taking up their burden  of defending their freedom.  The list of civil servants who  have already enlisted is a long  one, and comprises names of  men holding high departmental  positions, and of elevator men  and janitors. Today these men  are fighting side by side.  The following list is an incomplete one, and one which will  doubtless be greatly augmented  before peace is declared.

When you want to phone to Vancouver Island, to the Kootenay, or down  the coast, use the telephone right beside you. Every telephone is a long  distance telephone.  There is no difficulty in hearing the  party at the other end.  So when you want to telephone long  distance, do so from your own house or  office.  You get your party, or you don't  pay. That means you get your answer.   And all in a few moments, too.  British Columbia Telephone  Comp-any, limited  A report outlining work which  has been accomplished during  the past month in British Columbia by the Returned Soldiers' Aid  Commission has been forwarded  to Mr. R. H. Scammel, secretary  of the Military Hospitals Commission at Ottawa, by Mr. Jas.  H. Hill, secretary of the British  Columbia branch of the Aid Commission.  Notices of the formation of a  provincial organization have  been sent to the mayors, reeves  and government agents throughout the province outlining the duties to be undertaken by the commission and calling for the organization of local employment  committees to work in conjunction.  , Several replies to this appeal  have been received and already  seventeen places have formed local employment committees as  follows:  Alberni, Chiliiwack, Cranbrook,  Duncan, Kamloops, Lady-  smith, Nanaimo, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Port Coquitlam, Rossland, Vancouver,  Victoria, Burnaby, Oak Bay,  Ashcroft and Hazelton. In the  following places the Patriotic  Fund organization are acting:  Fraser Mills, Langley and Pen-  ticton.  With regard to the matters referred* at the inter-provincial  conference held at Ottawa last  October, the British Columbia  commission has appointed special  committees to prepare plans  under which technical and agricultural training will be provided for those men desiring to avail  themselves of. the same. The committee dealing with agricultural  training is also to formulate a  plan for placing the men on the  land. The committees are to submit their reports before the end  of the present month, when their  recommendations will be forwarded to Ottawa.  Mr. Hill says in his report that  the matter of dealing with the  men on their arrival from Quebec has been complicated by delays in receipt of men's pay cheques, "a circumstance which has  occasioned a great deal of unnecessary trouble and hardship  among the men and one which  calls for remedy with as little  delay as possible.  It is proposed that each soldier be interviewed at Quebec by  a representative bf the fund and  Vancouver Engineering Works, Ltd.

C.  a confidential report sent by the  latter to the patriotic committee  of the town to which the soldier  is going. This serves the two-fold  purpose of protecting the fund  against the greedy or" unscrupulous and of giving the local committee information that is helpful  in finding employment for the deserving. Not every man who returns to Canada wearing His Majesty's uniform is included in the  latter category, but the great  majority have done their duty in  the fullest degree. To the latter  it has been the privilege of the  fund to present a small badge  bearing the words, "For service  at the Front" The men who are  wearing these badges are the  worthiest citizens that we can  acknowledge. Like charity, that  badge should be allowed to cover  a multitude of sins.  The work that the Canadian  Patriotic Fund can do for returned soldiers, however, is limited  by act of parliament, and it has  been specifically enacted that no  assistance can be given by the  fund to "any person who is in  receipt of any gratuity, pension  or allowance paid by His Majesty  or by any foreign government in  consequence of incapacity or  Partly on this account and  largely because the pensions and  gratuities paid to incapacitated  men are oft-times admittedly inadequate, it has been necessary  to establish a Hospitals Commission and Disablement Fund. The  officials of the latter, in their report to the Federal Government,  recommended among other measures, that provincial commissions  be formed for the purpose of  supplementing these pensions either by monetary grants or by  free training in various trades.

While  the association has not been  much in the public limelight, it  is making rapid strides to the  front. While only organized last  October, it has turned out several classes, and on January 14  last another class with an enrolment of 61 members commenced^  That the organization was not  founded as a money-making  scheme can be gathered from the  fact that all that is necessary to  take up the' entire course is the  tuition fee of one dollar. The  idea of the organization was sim  ply to show the public how many  lives might be saved each year  if one only knew the simple  things that should be done at  the precise moment, according to  the kind of accident which happened.  An accident, such as the loss  of a limb can be attended to in  a moment and very little blood  lost. The same thing applies to  an arm or a hand, or practically  to any part of the body.  The association was formed by  Captain Downie, who acquired  much of his experience in Scottish shipyards. J)r. J. S. Shurie,  of this city is also deeply interested and took an active part  in the meeting held last week in  addressing the class on fractures1!  and dislocations of the lower  jaw, etc.  Many soldiers now in ambulance corps in this city are attending the classes, while six  nurses are also in attendance  and are confident they will soon  be fit to   qualify  for  the front.

One generally associates  the chirping of the robins or the  warm zephyrs of April with such  an act. The electors of South  Vancouver do not always play  according to Hoyle. They believe  in cleaning up on the first opportunity offered them. Last Saturday .was cleaning-up day at  the Municipal Hall, and their  work was well, and, we may  add, timely accomplished.  It was in no uncertain manner  that the electors showed their  disapproval of the actions of the  1915 council. Not only did they  turn out in force to defeat Reeve  Gold, but throughout the muni-  < cipality his council found public  sentiment against them, with the  result that only two members of  last year's council were returned. Messrs. Russell and Rowlings  were the two councillors who  weathered the. storm. One reeve  and six councillors is considered  a fairly good bag.  It was an unenviable reputation that had been imparted to  the municipality, through the actions of Reeve Gold and his council of last year. We do not care  to enter into any discussion as to  who were responsible. One thing  we do know, and that is the various embroilments tended to make  the municipality a laughing stock  throughout the country at large;  it grieviously impaired its finan  ' cial credit, and generally hindered its flight toward prosper  ity.  The electors made certain of a  clean slate for this year. To Ex-  Councillor Winram was given a  handsome majority of nearly 500  votes, while in addition they  elected a council who, no doubt,  will do all in their power to  work harmoniously, one of the  first essentials to a successful administration.  It is reported that ex-Reeve  Gold blamed his defeat to the  influences of the Social Service  Council, the Woman's Forum and  the church. If such is the' case,  then the best influences in South  Vancouver are to be congratulated for their efforts in ousting  Mr. Gold from the chief magis-  "^tracjXof "the municipality and  electing in his place a man of  the type of Reeve Winram.  The "Western Call" will follow with interest the progress of  the South Vancouver council during the months to come.  emy who refused to surrender  and fled in the direction pf the  landing places were annihilated.''

He  foreshadowed an economic regime  but suggested that there was  such a thing as carrying economy too far.

C, were Mr. Stuart Campbell, South Vancouver  representative of the Greater  Vancouver Sewerage Commission,  who is instigating the prosecution ; Mr. Griffiths Jones, commissioner for taking affidavits, and  Messrs. Campbell, Stanley, Allan  and Welsh, councillors at the  time the affiidavit" was "made.  The following is a copy of the  affidavit:  "I, Spencer Robinson, of the  Municipality of South Vancouver, British Columbia, do make  oath and say:  "That I was hired and paid for  attending a meeting of the South  Vancouver council when,, the  question of the contract to the  Pacific Lock Joint Pipe Company  for sewer pipes was about to be  decided.  "My instructions were to see  how Councillors Stanley, Campbell, Allan and Welsh Voted, as  the party-who hired and paid me  stated that these councillors were  to receive certain monies if the  contract was let to the. Pacific  Lock Joint Pipe Company.  "The man who hired and paid  me was Commissioner |, Stuart  Campbell ,the South Vancouver  representative of. the Greater  Vancouver Sewerage Board,  whose firm was acting as agents  for the said Pacific Lock Joint  Pipe Company. I duly reported  that the councillors above named voted and acted as agreed  upon.  "Dated this 5th day of January, 1916."  At the conclusion of the hearing his.worship formally committed the accused, the defence being reserved.  BETTER TRAM SERVICE  On account of the protest recently sent to the railway commissioners by the residents in  this district, the railway board  has ruled that a one-hour service  must be maintained between 5.30  and' 9.30 a.m. and between 4.30  and 7.30 p.m., the two-hour schedule being allowed at all'other  times, With the exception of an  additional car from New Westminster to Vancouver at 10.30  p. m.  Canadian Authoress Delights  Audiences  A large and delighted audience  greeted Mrs. Nellie L. McClung,  the well known Canadian authoress and speaker, at the Mt.  Pleasant Methodist church on  Tuesday evening, it being her  first appearance on the second  visit she has made to the coast.  Mrs. McClung's entertainment  consisted of three choice selections from her own writings, all  dealing with life among the people of the Canadian prairies.  "The Runaway Grandmother''  portrays the domestic trials and  tribulations of George Shaw,  bachelor, a Souris valley farmer  _who, despairing of ever getting  a reliable housekeeper, resorts  to a want advertisement. His  answer comes in the person of a  most garrulous but motherly  lady well past middle age who  preceeds to appropriate both  George and his belongings to herself for his own ultimate benefit,  and introduces her granddaughter, Maude, at the critical moment of the story. As George by  this time absolutely refuses to  part with the grandmother, while  Maude insists that she had always intended to keep house  some day and "let her grandmother do all the work," George  sees but one way out of the difficulty, and down by the river in  the glowing sunset, gives Maude  her chance to guess what that  may be. Needless to say, Maude  is a good guesser.  In "The Return Ticket," Mrs.  McClung gives a.glimpse of the  darker and sadder side of life,  and of the miseries that can be  brought into the home by a  drunkard husband.  ^The Way of the West," tak>  ing the first, fourth and twelfth  of July celebrations as a background, pictures the gradual  amalgamation of races and  creeds in the Souris valley until  even the little priest and "King  William of Orange" can march  alongside _by_ side singing, "Onward Christian Soldiers."  Mrs. McClung's pleasing presence ahd delivery added greatly  to the enjoyment of her recitals.  A feature of the evening was  the vocal music rendered by Mr.  C. E. Smitheringale, Miss Ruby  Sacret and Miss Muriel Foster,  with accompaniment by Professor  Ainsley.  Oh ^ Wednesday evening Mrs.  McClung gave some excerpts from  her first and perhaps her greatest book, "Sowing Seeds in Danny, "a dramatic story of a; Manitoba farm. By way of variety she  recited some of her poems of  western prairie life, bringing the  breeze, breadth and ozone of the  Canadian prairies vividly before  her audience.  A recent vote .taken in regard  to the union of the Presbyterian  church with the Methodist and  Congregational bodies, showed in  British Columbia, a majority for  the union of 2950, taking the  sessions, communicants,- adherents and mission fields. The proposal however, has been held in  abeyance for the time being by  the General Assembly, and no  further move in the direction of  union will be taken by the Assembly's committee until a later  date.  X .  "Doing  Their  Bit"   Against  Us  THERE are two members of valid  standing in the British House  of Lords who are "doing their  bit" in the effort of Germany to destroy Great Britain; the Duke of  Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and the Duke of  Cumberland and Teviotdale. Each of  these men is closely related to King  George V., the former being a nephew, and the latter a cousin of the  late   Edward   VII.  The fourth son of Queen Victoria,  the late Prince Leopold, who died in  1884, was the Duke of Albany in the  British Peerage. When the Saxe-Co-  burg dukedom became vacant in 1900,  through the death of' King George's  uncle, formerly known as the Duke of  Edinburgh, the position was hereditarily open to the Duke of Connaught and  Ii is son, Prince Arthur, who both declined it. The dukedom then passed  to the line of Prince Leopold, whose  son, the present Duke, is British by  birth and German only by naturalization. The remark made by Mr.  Asquith, when the suggestion was  made that the Duke should be expelled  from the House of Lords, which it  virtually the same thing as his removal from the Peerage, seems to indicate  that he bad been informing himself  oa the subject, for without expressing  any opinion on the merits of the case,  he said the procedure would be slow,  and would involve legislation which  the government was: not prepared to  initiate  at  present,  The first Duke of Cumberland of this  line was the fifth son of George III.,  and was, therefore, a brother of the  Duke of Kent and an uncle of Queen-  Victoria. He succeded to the  Throne of Hanover in 1837, when  Queen Victoria was- under the Salic  law, excluded from the Hanoverian  succession. The present cDuke is his  grandson, who is now past seventy.  Apparently, as a consequence of the  absorbing character of the war, the  final solution of this curious problem  will be deferred, but it is not unlikely that there will in the end be compliance, with the demand that as these  two scions of British Royalty have  chosen to adhere to the German cause  for the sake of their German status  they will have to forfeit their British  standing as a penalty. It is quite likely that German marriages for British  Princes and Princesses will after the  war be too unpopular to be risked.  For reasons quite apart from this  great struggle, the change, if it comes,  will be welcomed by the British people.  No More Qerman Imports  According to a recent bulletin of  the Department of Trade and Commerce at Ottawa, the German imports  into this country show the following  decline:  1913 ��������� $15,(540,438  1914     ,9,927,765  1915,          196,458  These figures   will carry their   own  suggestion to Canadian business men'.  No doubt their importance has been  noted a long-time ago, and the fullest  provision made tb ensure ��������� that they  shall never again reach their former  level. - The figures for 1913 have, bow-  ever, several disquieting features to  which it may be well to draw attention, unflattering as they may be to  the pride both of the home manufacturers and dealers and their customers. It is stated in the bulletin in  question ' that in practically all the  British Dominions Germany supplies  or rather did supply the-tools for the  staple industries, as well as manufactured goods of various kinds. ��������� It is  further stated that this is especially  noticeable in- the' Case of Canada,  which prior to the, war bought most  of���������her - cutlery and - forestry "impje-"  ments from German manufacturers.  This country exports something like  |50,000,000 worth of forest products  annually, and tbis is a mere fraction  of the likely developments of the business. It will, therefore, be realised  that the purchase of forestry implements, comparatvely small as it may  be at present, will assume really important proportion,... within, the next  few years.     ���������   ���������  .What are the Canadian manufacturers of these articles doing in the  matter? It is stated that the Germans offer their goods in some cases  at prices that prevent competition. As  to that, it is well-known that labor  in Germany is underpaid, and in a  case of that kind the government may  be expected to meet that exigency. It  has indeed been suggested that all  German goods should be barred from  the Canadian markets, but the home  manufacturers while naturally accepting any aid in that direction, should  not omit to overhaul their own organizations to ensure that they are in  a.position to supply their own people  with the $15,000,000 worth of goods  formerly   imported from Germany.  X ~ ] : " ^  ' .The Little Nat'ons  The little nations, or small dependencies, of the British Empire have  rallied nobly to the defence of tlie Empire. Two armored gun biplanes of 100  horsepower are to be added to the-  seven aeroplanes' already contributed  from Malay, which are to act as  scouts. This will make the Malayan  air squadron an efficient fighting unit.  Each of the new machines is* to cost  ������2,251. One of them has been presented by Manassed Meyer of Singapore, and the other is being provided  for by Alma Bafter of Batu Gajah,  Kinta, Perak, who up to October 30  still required about ������580 to complete  the purchase.  Aerial Defence of London.    -  SIR Percy Scott has been entrusted  with the task of organizing-.the'  defences of London, and it is said  that upon armored ' biplanes his  defence is based. He has probably one of the most diffcult  tasks of the war, for London  is technically an undefended city,  and offers a mark that could not  be completely missed by the most  drunken of a Zeppelin crew. In some  parts the city is twenty miles across.  The Zeppelins have been painted grey,  and some say that another color has  been Revised that makes the ships invisible at comparatively short range.  As a rule the Zeppelins time their  voyage so that they will reach England after dusk has fallen. Flying at  a height of from three to six miles,  they are beyond the reach of all but  the most powerful searchlights, and  though they are slower than biplanes,  they are fast enough, considering the  height which their pursuers' would  have to climb before successfully attacking them, to get beyond reach of  the searchlights and disappear in the  night before they "can be grappled  with.  As far as anti-aircraft guns are  concerned, they cannot be employed  against the Zeppelins once the balloons succeed in getting over the  heart of London, for the shells that  might be hurled at them, would certainly descend upon the defenders. If,  however, they can be detected when  on the outskirts of the city, the guns  can be pointed so that the Spent shells  parations for meeting the Zeppelins,  will fall in the open country. The pre-  therefore, will be made upon the outskirts of London. Here it is -expected  that squadrons of the great new biplanes will be stationed, ready to at-.  tack the Zeppelins as soon as they are  sighted, and able to come to close  quarters with them before they can  get fairly oyer the heart of the city.  A small aeroplane, such as that which  carried Warneford on his immortal  exploit, is fast enough, and can carry  explosives enough to destroy the largest Zeppelin once it can get in the  right position to do so. That position  is on top, and to secure' this point of  vantage something more than mere  speed is needed.  There are automobiles which are remarkably fast upon the -level road  that are poor hill climbers, and so  there are aeroplanes that have tremendous speed that cannot climb rapidly. Before the war began the' importance of the ability to mount rapidly was not appreciated. The new  planes will be equipped, moreover,  with the Sperry stabilizer, which will  enable the pilot to take his hands from  the steering wheel and man a gun or  drop bombs at will; and since it is  planned that they shall attack Zeppe-  line in fleets, tbe .chances of the balloons getting away from them the first  time they meet in a fair fight would  appear  to  be slim.  Sattle  Cry  of  Black Watch  The Edinburgh  Scotsman tells from  the  lips  of one of  the Black  Watch,'  how that  famous  regiment went  into  the battle of Loos. He says:  "We were over the parapet when  the order came, yelling like fiends,  and into the Germans almast before  they knew what was up. We had no  time to wait to polish off the Germans in the first line. There were other  bayonets coming behind ours. We  spent just a little more time at the  second line, but we heard the roaring  lines of our chaps coming up and we  plunged again. The third line kept us  busy. The Germans were steadier there  but we made a good job of that line,  andraced" for the" fourth.' Then I "got"  my sick leave. The work in the third  trench was slaughter. We did the  slaughtering. We were out for trenches,, not prisoners, and trenches we  got,   too,'' I  "It was just my . little 'crowded  hour,' " said another Highlander. "I  never knew that in less than five  minutes a crowd of sober respectable  Scotties could be transformed in a  perfect torrent of howling fiends. The  extraordinary thing about the charge  was its beastly methodicalness. We  were for the time being'just line upon  line of white savages run ampek, and  yet, sub-consciously if you like, V the  training held and guided us in our  madness. From one. rushing group I  heard among, the strange noises, and  the panting, a magnificent yell of "On  the ball, Dundee!' Another fellow  was gulping as he ran, 'five, five,  five.' I wonder if he made it six at  the   next trench.  "In case there should be any dispute as to the Black Watch being the  finest regiment in the world, I think  the matter should be-referred to the  Germans. The Seaforths and the Gordons and the Camerons and the Argyll's might be as good. We'll settle the  matter in Berlin. But the Black,Watch  made a charge on September 26th  which is going.to take some beating."

From   the  Russian capital Putnik went to France  to study at the Polytechnic and at St.  Cyr, this last full of memories of the  great Napoleon.    ���������  / *As soon as his education was completed and he returned to his native J  land he was intrusted with the reorganization of the Serbian army. It  is the prdduct of ^ his labors. He *" got  his baptism of fire in 1876 in fighting  side by side with the Russians against  the Turks. In 1877 again he was campaigning against the Sultan's soldiers.  In 1885 he fought with the Serbs  against the Bulgars. In 1912 lie was  fighting the Turks with the Bulgars  as allies in the first Balkan war, and-s  at Kumanovo his gallant Serb army  astonished Western Europe,' unacquainted with its ancient history or  its modern . prowess. The Turks were  completely routed at Kumanovo, the  Serbs, under their Crown Prince 'Alex- :  ander and General Bozovitch, captured nearly 200 guns of different kinds.  In 1912 Putnik directed the Serbian army . which fought with the  Greeks as allies against the Bulgars  in, the second Balkan war, and 1915  finds him struggling without hope of  success for the existence : of his 'nation against the, Bulgars, aided by^ the  soldiers oif the two great Teutonic  empires.'- '.X/-'V  This ; war opened with what might  have been the greatest personal disaster Putnik ever met. He was spending  the summer at a Hungarian watering  place, seeking relief from ill-health,  when Austria and Serbia went to war,  and some overly zealous soldiers of  Francis Joseph instantly took possession - of the person of the Serbian  commander-in-chief, placing him under  arrest. Francis o'seph himself ordered  the release, glad of an opportunity of  making known the claims which Field -  Marshal Putnik had to consideration  and respect even from his enemies.  The Slav subjects of the Dual Monarchy would have been deeply incensed  of the Emperor had kept Putnik in  captivity.  His headquarters when the enemy  began its last advance against Serbia  were at Krakbuyevats, where the arsenal was situated, nd which has, of  course, been evacuated. There he occupied one room as an office, fur- ,'  nished with three tables covered with, ���������  maps, a bureau, some chairs, and two  telephones. There he sat all day in a  blue uniform which had seen much  service, his only decoration, a medal  for bravery, pinned on his breast. A  gray-bearded, slender, little man, fragile and pale, and bearing some resemblance to General Grant, he made  no imposing appearance as he rose to  receive the foreign visitors from London and Paris who journeyed to ese  him. But his luminous, blue-grey eyes  marked him out for distinction, and  his splendid intelligence was soon  manifest.  The Serbian Field Marshal  Field Marshal M. Putnik, chief of  the genera] staff of the brave little  Serbian army, has written a memorable page of history with his troops,  outnumbered tremendously, in fearlessly offering resistance; to the detachment of the German-Austrians under  Field Marshal Von Mackensen, as well  as to the whole Bulgarian army.

Malone has  with    him  the   spoils   of   thei   poker  board consisting of about $100 worth  of furs, wbich will sell  for $5,000 in  the larger markets.  . Four traders sat in the game, according to Malone. It was a jack-pot  game,a nd the opening play was made  on ten muskrat skins. Toward the end  of the night's play, a raise of ten otters and a fisher promised something  sensational. The raise was met with ;;  150 rats, followed by 20 red foxes.  The third man got cold feet and  dropped out, after sticking along for  ten cross foxes and a few beaver. The  dealer met the raise with a boost in  beaver, and the player under the gun  came across with  a silver fox.  At this juncture another player  dropped out, and the remaining men  debated for some time upon the understanding made previous to the  starting vof the game���������that cash was  valueless and only furs should be used '  as stakes. The silver fox ante could  be met only with another silver fox  and as there were no silver foxes in  the possession of the other man, the  game was concluded and Malone took  all the furs in the shack.

THE WESTERN  CALL  V  SPORTING COMMENT  The champions are showing the  ray  to  the other  teams in 'the  [ague   at   present,   and it will  like some   beating   to   prevent  |iem from copping the honors for  second .season.   A  few   short  !*eeks ago they looked a pretty  [oor aggregation, but when  the  sterans rounded into shape they  npmenced to look   mighty formidable.

The visitors are playing  a   great game  jjust now, and it took every ounce  ot strength that Vancouver possessed to defeat them. The score  ip   to  the  middle of. the  third  [period was 1 to 0 in favor of the  [Rosebuds, but after Mackay had  [evened up the   visiting   players  [slipped just enough to lose their  [bearings, and three more count-  Jers sagged the nets behind Tom-  |my Murray,  and  the  game was  >ver.     On the night's play there  kvas really   little   to   choose  between the two teams, and it was  pimply  the -marvellous condition  )f the locals that won for them,  [t was ding dong hockey.all the  ray, with beautiful combination;  felever   stickhandling   and   well  pngineered plays by the opposing  forward   lines.   The' defences  of  >oth teams   were   splendid   and  rere as a stonewall. Time.and  [igain the opposing forwards were  turned back, and goals were presented only by skilful playing.  [Neither defence "had anything on  the other until the last quarter  when the visitors weakened just  a little. The game was anybody's right up until the break,  but when Captain Griffis moved  Cook up to the line and brought  Duncan back to point, the problem was solved. Cook just added  sufficient speed to the line to  muddle the Portland defence. It  was a splendid piece of hockey  strategy, and Captain Griffis deserves all the praise coming his  way. It takes some headwork to  play as he plays, and study the  opposing team at the same time.  And by the way, the old veteran  is just now at tlie top of his form.  The whole Vancouver team are  now in the pink of condition, and  should not suffer another defeat  this season.  For the visitors every man  played great hockey. They are  a well balanced seven, they know,  each other's play, and they depend on each other always. They  are still serious contenders forthe  honors, and with a full game  lead on the other teams of the  league will take a great deal of  beating   before  they   are   down  and out.  ��������� *   ���������  Oatman scored the first goal  about, half way through the first  period when he took a long shot  at Lehman that had the speed of  a machine gun behind it.

Thanks to the efforts of our  old friend, "Jeems" Mclntyre, the  curlers of both Vancouver and New  Westminster were treated to soma  rare sport. Three rinks of ice were  la id-out and���������several -matches ���������were  played.' In the opening game of the"  week, Hendry's ftnk of New Westminster, defeated Jimmy Mclntyre's  rink by a score of 12 to 8. Ex-Alderman Crowe and City Clerk McQueen  gathered together a rink from the  City Hall and enjoyed the sport also.  The city skaters have been forsaking the Arena lately and every afternoon and evening have wended their  way to either Trout or Burnaby Lake.  The bright moonlight nights have added to the pleasures of the skaters.  As Seen in Australia  "What is an optimist, Dad?" asked Tommy of his father the night after   the Williamstown Cup.

"You see, Tommy," continued Dad,  after a long draw at his pipe, "a  bookmaker is an optimist because he  thinks every horse in the race has a  good chance of winning and that's  why   he gives   short   odds."

THREE-CENT STAMPS  ARE SELLING SLOWLY  Officials at the Vancouver post  office report that the sales of the  r<������w three cent stiin.ps ha-re not  been as large as expected. Judgr  ing from the number of people  who express a desire for the old  two and -one in preference to the  innovation the establishing of the  new in general use will take  some time. The complaint with  the new stamp seems to be that  it is so nearly similar to the ordinary two cent stamp that there  is a danger of confusion.  The new three cent war stamp  is very similar to the ordinary  two cent stamp, the only difference being that the centre of the  base bears in vacant relief the  large letter "T" with a small  "I" on its left and a small "C"  on its right, meaning 1 cent tax.  It was first placed in use  throughout the Dominion on  Tuesday of last week.  GERMANY'S DIGNITY  , A most interesting meeting of  the Woman's Forum bf Ward V.  was held on Wednesday afternoon in the K. P. Hall. A splendid attendance of the women voters of the ward was registered.  All ladies interested in equal pay  for equal work for women, as  well as in a clean city government, are urged to attend these  meetings, which are held on the  second Wednesday in each  month.  "If our enemies make peace  proposals compatible with Germany's dignity and safety." ���������  Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg.  Dignity, did you say, Herr Doctor? And what, pray, is the nature of Germany's dignity? Dignity is:  "The   state of   being   worthy,  honorable. EleVation   of charac  ter or mind; true worth; excellence; elevation; grandeur; quality suitable to inspire respect."  Dignity and delicacy are from  a common root, and are, in common expressions of the same  virtue. From the same root word  comes the verb to "deign," to  esteem worthy, and also "decency '' and '' decorum.''  r When, since July, 1914, Herr  Doctor, has the Kaiser who is,  for purposes of considering means  of arriving at peace, "Germany," given evidence of dignity? And was it dignity, delicacy, elevation of character or  mind, true worth, or any quality  suitable to inspire respect, that  caused you, in your capacity of  Imperial Chancellor, to declare  the treaty guaranteeing the neutrality of Belgium a scrap of paper?  Was it delicacy or decency that  led the German hordes across the  border to trample Belgian fields,  to murder Belgian civilians, to  assault Belgian women, to smash  the skulls of Belgian children,  to bombard Belgian cathedrals,  to "fine" unarmed Belgian cities as Attila fined communities to  refill his coffers? Was it dignity,  in any measure of the term, that  dictated the murder of Miss Cavell, the sinking of the Lusitania  and a score of other defenceless  passenger vessels . carrying de  fenceless women and children ?  Are decorum and delicacy and  decency ilustrated by arson and  other exploits conducted in America through the diplomatic and  assassination and bribery and  consular, offices of Germany in the  United States? Did dignity conceive the aliance with the unspeakable Turk and the preaching of a holy war in countries  occupied chiefly by unlettered  Moslems? Would any other professedly Christian power deign  to consider such proceedings ?  The safety of Germany never  was threatened. The dignity of  the German masses never was as  sailed or questioned. The Kaiser's compaign for everybody's  place in the sun lacks the dignity  of the rampage of a rabid dog.  For the dog has at least the  melancholy dignity of dread affliction and not merely a hoggish  disposition.

The idea met with the unanimous approval of the committee,  md the scheme will doubtless be  Eollowed. Mrs.   Mahon's   report,  Iwhich   follows,   is   self-explana-  [tory:  'Owing to the fact that the  (Vancouver branch of. the Red  Cross Society has grown into a  large business, handling large  sums of money, and large quantities of material, it is felt that  some seheme should be adopted  by which the purchasing of the  society can be more centrally  and economically conducted; not  only to add to the efficiency of  the organization and thereby increase the output of supplies for  the soldiers; but in justice to the  public which gives so generously to the Red Cross funds. No  large orgnization can, with profit  to itself, allow its purchasing to  be done by a lot of different  units, of different capacity, with  different facilities for conducting  business.  A Large Buanesu  All large firms are centrally  conducted. The Vancouver  branch handles well over $15,000  a year and an average in recent  months of over $2,000 a month.  The proposed duties of the new  purchasing committee are the  centralizing and control of the  purchasing and expenditures, and  its work since the first meeting  has been with that view in mind.  The voucher system was discussed, as a means of centralizing  the buying without interfering  with the method of work at present in vogue in the ward branches.  The system, which follows, as  submitted to the purchasing committee at its last meeting on December 8, and approved by, and  recommended to the executive by  the administration and finance  committees,  is  not presented as  final, but merely to show how  simple a form the proposed  scheme would take.  Each ward, as at the present  time, sends in its cheque to head  office, but instead of receiving a  cheque back will simply have a  credit for this amount in head  office books. When a ward wishes to expend any part of this credit, its representative goes to  head office where there will be  an official constantly available  for this purpose, and asks for an  order slip for the amount of  goods she requires, directed to  the particular store she designates. The official on ascertaining  that the ward has credit to cover  the amount, fills out the order  slip and stub and hands it to the  representative. The order slip  is then handed to the store and  exchanged for the goods. The  store sends in the order slip with  the bill to the secretary-treasurer.  The shops with which the Bed  Cross Society will do business, together with the materials and'  their prices,. will be posted in  each ward and auxiliary.  Prices and samples have already been obtained and the  firms and goods settled on. That  much towards uniformity of quality and price has been accomplished.  In proposing the change no reflection is cast on the excellent  work done in the past, but it is  felt that it has assumed such proportions that it is necessary and  desirable that it should be conducted on more satisfactory business principles. The branches  would still use unfettered discretion in choosing the materials  suited to their - needs, and would  come in the same personal contact with the shops. The interest  in collecting money and keeping  up the ward credit in the central  books would be as keen as before.  Notwithstanding the fact of  the formation of a purchasing  committee, the branches not only  retain complete control over their  own expenditures, but also the  policy of the purchasing committee, as the purchasing committee  HANBURY'S  For  UMBER-SASH-.

"Buy Goods Made at Home, and get both the  Goods and the Money."  is composed of the chairman of  each branch; its duties being to  facilitate and organize the purchasing.  Some of the advantages of the  scheme are:  Large amounts of money will  be saved by a central control of  the" prices which fluctuate rapidly.  The outside branches have not  the same facilities as the city  branches to keep in touch with  this rapid fluctuation.  As an example of what the  committee will be able to do, and  on a larger scale if occasion  arises, the following incident may  be cited:  On December 8 a large firm  telephoned to the central depot  and stated that they had on hand  three and one-half bales non-absorbent cotton at $11.00 a bale,  and that the price was rising rapidly, but they were willing to  let us have it at the lowest quotation of the day if a representative of the purchasing committee  would come and sign for it.  A representative of the committee went to this firm and procured a written statement that  the firm would keep' on hand for  delivery in bale lots at bur convenience the three and one-half  bales at $11.00. By night, the  price* had risen to $12;50 a bale.  A big city branch would; be  able to do the same thing, but it  can readily be seen the saving affected for the smaller city  branches and all the outside  branches.  The fact that the society contemplates purchasing in a more  central manner has already stimulated the interest of the local  firms who are now much more  willing to meet our wishes as to  price.  It was found that the quality  of gauze used by the society  could be procured cut and at a  good price from Montreal, and a  month's supply has been ordered. Since then three local firms  who had been indifferent as to  our needs, have approached the  committee and are eager for our  orders. ,  Points of Advantage  (a) A central body can keep  in touch not only with the prices, but with local and eastern  firms as well.  (b) It creates a uniformity in  quality and prices of the materials.  (c) It dispenses with a great  deal of the book-keeping of the  ward branches, as they would  have no expenditures to enter in  their books except for petty  cash.'; ���������������������������  ~(d) One "of TtKeVX?reatiC" advantages will be the saving effected by arranging the prices  for the immediate and ultimate  purchase of much larger quantities of particular kinds of material with particular firms than  is at present possible by individual branches.."  Upon the suggestion of Mr. A.  P. Black the following committee was appointed to work out  the details in connection with the  new scheme: Messrs. H. H. Morris, A. P. Black, J. W. McFarland, Mesdames Mills and Gra-  veley.  Treasurer's Report  The report of the secretary-treasurer showed that contributions  to the society during the month  of December had been most generous, about $9,000 having been  collected ..while the expenses in  connection with the Central Depot had been comparatively light.  Encouraging reports were sent  in by the chairman of the administration and finance committees outlining the work carried  on by these two departments. Of  special interest is the report of  Mrs. Mills, chairman of the property committee. This report  showed that 288 cases, containing 71,000 garments of hospital  and field supplies had been shipped to the front. All work was of  high standard, the socks being  well-knitted and washed.  HOSPITAL WORK  IS PROGRESSING  The annual meeting of the governors of the General Hospital  will be held at the hospital on  the evening of February 9th, at  8.15. It is hoped that any of the  citizens, especially of this vicinity, who are interested in the  welfare of the hospital, will make  it a point of being present, as  the full reports of the work for  1915 will be gone into and many  immediate improvements discussed. The new eye, ear, nose and  throat department, furnished by  the "Woman's Auxiliary, has recently been opened and is now  in use. A new operating suite of  five rooms is also open, and it is  expected the Cavell memorial  ward will soon be in operation.  One of the new wards has been  furnished by Dr. Wilson Herald,  of 3838 Selkirk Avenue, in memory of his son, who was killed  in France. The hospital reports  all wards well filled up at present.  MORE PA? FOR  COUNTY JUDGES  IRISH ASSOCIATION  ANNUAL MEETING  A resolution advocating a larger remuneration for County  Court judges in British Columbia to meet the higher cost of  living above that of the eastern  provinces was passed at the annual meeting of the Vancouver  Bar Association held last week.  The resolution urged a substantial increase of salary for British  Columbia County Court judges,  and has already been forwarded  to the Minister of Justice.  At present the County Court  judges throughout Canada are  paid $3,000 a year, with $500 extra for senior judges. In addition to the higher cost of living  in British Columbia and the fewer oportunities fbr extra fees for  commissions and arbitration work  it is pointed out that the jurisdiction of the County Court  judges in this province is five  times as high as in most of the  eastern provinces, while in mining and water right, mechanics'  lien cases, etc., the jurisdiction  is unlimited.  The Bar Association decided to  fall in with the scheme of the  Patriotic Fund Committee, and  arranged to conduct a canvass  among the entire legal fraternity  in the city and district.
