Before the day is over It ib expected the number will be nearly doubled, and ths battery will end Its first day's recruiting at ul-niost half strength. As very few on the men have yet been medically examined, Lieut. Nelson in charge of organization has asked the Herald that the list of applicants he not published till tomorrow. 1 ITiere will be some surprises when the list comes out. The Cist is getting a fine type ot men. About half of the morning's applicant's have seen previous service, many of them having seen active service. A large number of them also are good riders which will help considerably In making the unit a good one. There is allll a great deal of speculation regarding tlie identity of the commanding ofllcer. It la known that the position has been offered to Capt. C. H. Gollinson, a .Macleod rancher of considerable previous military experience, who is now in Kingston taking his course pf a captain's commlBEion in artillery. Whether or not Capt. Gollinson will be in a pasition to accept the offer remains undecided and will not likely be definitely known until next month. Quite a number ol guards at the alien enemy iuternmont camp today applied tor a transfer to the 6l8t. As their joining the new unit will deplete the guard staff, Major Birnle is in a position to receive applications, from a few men to fill the vacancies.

WinnipoK, April U, - Uloting took jilaoo last night on .'\lain street in the neighborhood of tho city police station on Rupert Klreet. followiivg on the arrest by the polltje of a soldier, which was mucli resented by his con:-rade.-i and men of other battaltonf. The trouble Htarleil at 7 o'clock and wont on lutermltlputly until raid-ulght. Troops Confined to Barracks Winnipeg, April 3.-As 'a precautionary measure all local troops are today confined to their pwrane grounds, except such as are employed on the usual garrison duty. City policemen are today on their customary boats downtown after being withdrawn entirely all day Sunday within the police station on Rupert street. The excite-^ ment ot the Saturday night disturb-" ance has died down and conditions are perfectly normal. A military inquiry will be held and sittlngB of both the license and police commissions are taking place today. The military opinion is that the trouble started from uncalled for police Interference in arresting a military police officer together with a soldier the latter had in charge. The following is a list ot more or less seriously Injured: Private Geo. Smith, tvactured skull, condition grave; Sergt. RIangford, internal injuries; Bugler Wood, bruised and cut; Pte. McKay, injured knee, battered face and cuts; J. V. Norton, president of the Norton Land company, cuts on the head. A number of other persons, including civilians and onlookers, received minor injuries and lorn clothe."!, chiefly during the charges made by the police, who used tl'ojr baton.-! t'rjely. In the last of these Deputy Chief iNewtor was caught on llie face by � stone. The majority of serious injuries -were caused by the side-swiping of^te-l.Hil-(Inr at the fire brigade which was (tailed out on"a false alarm. Col. Ruttan, D.O.C. estimates that there were iliMltf civillauH to each soldier in the crowd. The chief material damage was confined to broken windows of the police station and broken glass ot one or two Main street store fronts shattered by bricks. \' The city police now claim that Pte. Smith met his injuries quite apart from the street rioting as he was picked up in a basement at 360 Pacific Avenue with his skull fractured and It is supposed that his Injuries were due to B fall down stairs. Military regulationB put in force to-dfcy are aimed to keep men off duty from the streets and all bars are out of bounds. Men billeted in their homes are Instructed to keep off the Htreets. Fifty Under Arrest it is estimated that about 50 soldiers are under arrest in their \Tiriou8 battalions In connection with the riots Red hot Saturday night, simmering yesterday, por.ular excitement has now cooled ofr, - Whiskey the Cause Winnipeg, April Local papers in commenting editorially on the trouble are unanimous in putting down the cause to llqupr. Thus the- Telegram says In part: "Apportioning the blame 1b easy enough. Whiskey did it. It the govern-cial government siiouid see lit to make the incident a justification for shutting up the bars oven before the first oC June, the whiskey sellers would have nobody but themselves to blame." ThC' Free Press says in part; "These experiences go to confirm a very gfeneral belief that open bars and ,1 garrison town do not go very \vell together. Considering what happened there will be general regret that the people of A'lanltoba did not start a little ^^rllor on their Job of putting the bars out ot business." The Tribune says: "A feeling ot intense regret prevails that Winnipeg's thoroughfares should have been disgraced by the scenes of Saturday and. Sunday. Evidence points to whiskey us having been the factor in Inviting thei trouble." RAID :�: KILTIE OFFICERS :-: LIEUT.

REATENS flPULA ERMANY People Have Many Schemes for Conflerving Their Strength, So Short l8 Food ALLIES WILL BLOCKAD EFFECTIVE RE North-east Coast of England Again Attacked-6 are Killed and 100 Wounded London, April 3.-The Chronicle liaE the following from Copenhagen: "It appears that the Germans at last are facing the fact ot a threatening famine. New examples are daily told by travellers, especially women. Up to the close of February it seems that the greater part of the population had not really suffered, although rations had long been.greatly diminished, but in March a great change came. A catastrophe Is apprehended. A man who has lived in Berlin several years who just now is visiting Copenhagen tells us that the situation throughout the country for the last three or four weeks must be considered grave. It Is impossible for poor people to get adequate food, as a healthy diet would cost 10 to 11! marks daily. There is meat enough, but as it is roasted in sugar and water, it does not strengthen the constitution. "In the Danlth Journal, Gads Daneko Magazine, March number. Dr. Edward liehraan, lately returned from Berlin, says everybody stays at homo. It saves money and it saves strength. It is curious, he says, to see how slowly they moved their feet. At first he thought It was depression, but soon he learned to walk slowly himsolf on account of small rations of bread and especially ot, butter. He liad juat finished a book where ho had learned it is by the help ot hydrates and carbonates that wo are able to read. Now he learned that they are also necessary tor walking.

London, April a.-An extraordinary council o( the Dutch .m|nlster.s o? slate wa.-s held yesterday at The Hague, uccordlng to Renter's correspondent at The Hague. Scandinavia Is Alarmed London. April 2,-A great stir has been caused in Scandinavia by the report that Great Britain has decided to suspend section 10 of Ihd Deciara-tlon of London, according to the Co-l)enhagen correspondent ot the Exchange-Telegraph company. The general opinion Is that the decision is attributable to a determination to promote the blockade ot Germany with more vigor. Some newspapers suggest that, the suspension is possibly a preliminary to a formal announcement of a complete blockade, which may have been decided upon at the Paris conference ot the entente allies. New Order ^ Great Britain Issued an order-lu-counoil March 30 which declared "that neither a vessel nor her cargo shall be immune from capture for a broach of blockade jupon the sole ground that she at the moment is on her way to a non-blocliaded port." This is in contravention ot section 19, of the Declaration ot London, which declared neither a vessel nor her cargo on the way to h non-blockaded port could be captured. NEW C'P.R. SUPT.
