Of all tho great numbers of wounded he had seen during the war, he added, those now coming back from the front were in the. highest spirit. Thoy were almost joyful, notwithstanding their wounds, lie said, because of their faith In tlie approach of docisivo victory and because they had seen that for n'd the damage done by the Germans to tho allies a vastly greater toll had been paid by the Germans.

REPRISALS (Special .to the Herald) Edmonton, April 5.-That- the provincial government effected a better deal than tho Dominion authorities when the $1,500,000 bond issue was placed upon the market last August and September was the evidence of C. V. Newson, deputy provincial treasurer, examined by James Weir, member for Nanton at tho sitting of the public accounts committee of the legislature Friday morning. The transaction was conducted through the Dominion Securities Company who Mr. Newson informed the committee, appeared to bo the only financial corporation at the time, owing to tho state of tlio money market, desirous of taking up the business. At tho start the corporation bought $250,000 outright and got an option on tho remainder of a million. Later the whole block of a million was sold and so well that when the company applied for the remainder of the Issue they were asked ft>r aud paid a better*price. Mr. Newson explained that there was this advantage in conducting business through the Dominion Securities that they advertised largely and boosted the province in advertising their own business. The corporation had to be supplied with statistical and other Information and this was published by them in the advertising matter they issued.
