W. A. Buchanan Uanaging Director John Tcrranco Buslneis ManaEer Your King and CountryNood You Rifllit Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The fighting at St. Eloi, where the G�nuana have made several attacks. Is believed to be an oftort on their part to draw the allies Into an offensive before the plans of the allies for a simultaneous drive along all fronts have matured. The Ocrmans have gained little in this sudden offensive, In fact, have lost heavily. ^ The Canadians won more glory for themselves In this fighting, two Ontario details capturing Important German positions. In East Africa anotlter important Ylctory has been gained for the British by General Smuta' forces. Tlie situation between United States and Germany has resulted In a split In President Wilson's cabinet between 'those who favor strenuous measures against the Germaus for breaking solemn pledges, and those who are inclined to the side of peace. No definite action will be taken in the matter of the sinking of the Sassex until nil evidence is in official hands at Washington. A conference for the discussion of mutual economic and commercial problems between the allies as they ^fil\ be etfeoted after the war, is to be held In Paris. HOW ALLISON'S TREACHERY ROBBED CANADA There Is more behind the Kyte charges than the mere juggling of contracts for the personal enrichment of J. Wesley Allison. Canada' has been robbed of her opportunity to tender on millions of dollars worth of war contracts-contracts which could well and allow Germany to do as she pleases. This party, however, ^ill have a task to explain why U. S. is 80 eager to get Villa who took .American lives at Columbus, wlillo letting Oerinnny go scot free in her fright-fulness campaign that has already taken the lives of defenceless Americans on the high seas. The American press is almost unanimous in asking this pertinent question, and the sink-Inp of the Sussex by a German to^ pedo has forced the issue to a point where it cannot be Ignored. The United States govcrnnieut has several courses open to it. It can wash Its hands of the whole business, declaring that, while it coueiders Crer-niany's course very naughty. It Is not prepared to go to war to vindicate the rights of .\merlcjins to travel without molestation or danger upon the high seas-a course whlcJi Is by no means inconceivable. Or it can protend that It is not satlsQad that the Sussex was sunk by a torpedo from a German submarine. No doubt Germany would bo willing to co-operate with the United States to the point of vociferously denying that a German submarine was within ^one hundred miles of the scene of the disaster. If, however. Ambassador Page at London has notified the United States government that from Investigations carried cn by him it is clear beyond all possibility of denial that it was a German torpedo boat that brought about the Sussex disaster, the United States government will find It difficult to maintain the pretence that definite information as to Germany's responsibility in this Matter cannot be secured. The third course is for the United States to make the Sussex incident the occasion for closing out the submarine controversy in the only man ner conalstent with the dignity of the United States-admission of wrongdoing, apology, reparation and pimiah-ment of the parties responsible, or the severance of diplomatic relations, with the pracUcal cerUinty that this means war either Immediately or at an early day. The Ume baa come when the people of the United States are demanding a definite and consistent foreign policy. Will Secretary Lansing win out? This week win probably give the answer. This answer will bo awaited eagerly by Canadians. As between wniliam Jennings Bryan and S cretary Lansing, his successor in office, there is a gulf-some gulf. Tlie French now have a 16-inch land gun that is a terror to the Huns, have been handled In this country had. jjere's hoping it's as successful as the the government gone about the matter geventy-five. in a businesslike manner. Discussing ' this phase of the question the Toronto Telegram saya: "WTiy were Canadian manufacturers not given a fair chance, to tender on the t2e,000.000 worth of time fuse and contract fuse work that the British government placed In the hands ' of the shell committee for distribution in Canada? "The diversion of this t26,000,000 .worth of work from Canadian manufacturers to American brokers Is the , direct result of Sir Robert Borden's i failure to appoint a minister of.m,u- nltlons. "Canadian, manufacturers oould have made ^28,000,000 worth of time fuses and percussipn fuses if the opportunity had been put up to the manufaoturers of Canada by a larger sized leadership. Sir Robert Borden has to vindicate Col. J. Wesley Allison. Furthermore, Sir Robert Bor-'den's failure to do something more for the manufacturers of Canada than to leave these manufacturers to abase themselves in the pursuit of munition orders. Canadian manufacturers had first to crawl to the shell committee fer orders, and then to the banks for credit to finance the fulfilment of these orders, while Yankee brokers were having orders handed to them by Col. J. Wealoy Allison with �3,000,-000 advances of British money to finance the orders." SOME DETAILS OF THE SORDID TALE F. a New Brunswick grew last year 268,899 bushels of wheat and 8,384,951 bushels of potatoes. They ought to ohange the name of tliat province to New Ireland. Germany says she didn't sink the Sussex. Having gone the limit in broken pledges, she now resorts to plain lying. We are pleased to see she begins to recognize where she belongs. Sir Sam Hughes can perform prodigious stunts we'll all admit, but here's the eighth wonder of the world: On June 3, 1915, Sir Sam left for England, returning in September. On June 19, 1916, there were signed, sealed and delivered, in Ottawa, in the presence of J. F. Orde, K.C., witness, the documents ratifying the agreements with the International and American fuse companies. This was signed by Sir Sam Hughes in Ottawa, and all the time he was In England. Deucedly peculiar! U. S. AND GBRMANYj PEACE OH WAR? To all appearances the crisis has comftrin the relations between Uncle Sam aad Germany. This week will probably settle the U. S. policy. The decision is likely to be a momentous OUQ In the history of this continent. Stung by Germany's apparent utter disregard for her promises on tlie sub marine, question, an out-and-out war party has developed in the U. S. cab Inet. Led by Secretary of State Lan sing, who more than any other man perhaps knows the inside of the negotiations "With Germany over submarine outrages, the war party Is ready to Ijraak off diplomatic negotiations with " the Huns and declare war. To this ootei'Ie President Wilson leans. He, {'aaeroiagly, is growing tired of writing I endless, fruitless notes to the scrap-'of'paper nation, and Is ready to come ; I eut lliit'footed against Germany. On the other Bldq'wc And, the pa '1 �lfl8t8 Who iirelRgfJiiSj ^ny^ dlj)lomatlc ' wptiure, They^^i are evidently "willing ttiAt Xf,^, slioulA* smother-ber bonor There's a town in Saskatchewan called Kaiser. The people there are as anxious to change the name as are the people of Berlin. Ont.,to get rid of theirs. An English Canadian woman writes the Winnipeg Free Press about the delay In changing the name, using verse to emphasize her disgust: Still, alas, alas, our cry, sir, 'Gainst that hated name of Kaiser Goes unheard. Our indignation Boils within us that our station Is defiled still, to our shame, By that execrable name- Bolls -within us, like a geyser, 'Gainst that hellish name of Kaiser. It Is monstrous in our land Such a name's allowed to stand! The Berlin city council has decided to Join the Home Guard In a body. C. C.

Rev. Hugh McFarlaae, assistant minister in St. Andrew's church Barrie. has announced his Intention of leaving there when his year is up in May and enlisting as a private with a London battalion. Giovanni Correlll, apparently out of curiosity, put his head under a 1300 pound team hammer at the Billings-Spencer plant in Welland and tripped It with his foot at the same time. His head was smashed flat. The oflfice of R. G.

VENIZEL08 MAY MAKE TROUBLE FOR THE GREEKS Athens, April 7, via Paris, April 8.- A vast throng assembled today outside the home of Former Premier Venlzelos In a demonstration over his re-entry into active jiolltics. The crowds were BO dense that the royal procession returning from the cathedral was stopped. Mounted police were summoned and dispersed the crowd with great difficulty, several persons being In jured. The feeling is tense. Besides publishing a second article in the Herald, his personal organ, on Sunday, on the political situation, M, Venlzelos intends to organize public meetings of protest against the continuance of the present government In power. It Is not believed � the government wiU permit th�. meetings to babeld. St. Catherines Women's Patriotic League has started a campaign for funds and equipment for a building to be erected at Niagara Camp as a rest room for wives, mothers, sisters pnd friends of overseas soldiers during the coming summer. The league has secured a promise from the St. Catherines Carpenters' Union that the men will gratuitously give thej- services to a "bee" to erect the building. Statisticians, who have been busy since Chancellor McKenna's new budget was announced, in figuring out what taxes the various millionaires will pay, declare that Baron Astor of Hovor (William Waldorf Astor) who already has paid '$1,400,000 In taxes this year, will pay 20 per cent additional, or 1280,000 under the new assessment. British millionaires, whose influence hitherto has been powerful enough to keep down tho income-tax, are now accepting the aitnation. For the Red Cross sale at Christie's In London, his majeaty the king gave a heautifui panel of Chinese emUroid ery. Her majesty Queen Mary sent two jeweled bracelets, which she had been accustomed to wearing. A number of early Victorian autographs were included amongst gifts to the cause. An odd donation from Lady Heleii Ac-land-Hood, sister of the duke of Hamilton, was a piece of Napoleon's coflln, a locket with a loclE of his hair and a box made troni tbq vtUow tr�o over his In'ave, Ottawa, April S.^Now that tho tumult and the shouting have clarified, so to speak, one can analyze the general features more calmly than was IKJsslble a week ago when parliament was still aglow'with George Kyte's speech. The house has not felt so warm since before the war. When the member for Richmond. N.S., had concluded his remarks Sir Wilfrid Laurier was tlioroughly kindled. "Stung," he exclaimed, and when Sir Wilfrid drops into the vernacular that way yo.u can bet the largo emotions are relensod. The speech which nailed the government to Its shell committee and Major General Sir Sam Hughes to his dear friend Colonel J. Wesley Allison, although four hours long and not a dull minute anywhere, was perhaps the easiest part of the work. Before that was the long, hard job of tracing the Colonel to various lairs In New York state and Virginia, surprising him red handed with his fellow bandits, sorting out his aliases as disclosed by the mushroom companies he dealt with or caused to be Incorporat-and establishing an otucial connection between his dark deeds, tho old shell committee and .Major General Sam. The Colonel had as many disguises as Jupiter-but mostly he was the Golden Shower as experienced by Danae-and believe me he took some trailing, also some quick thinking and clever deduction. As two heads are better than one in this Sherlock Holmes business, it is no surprise to learn that Frank Car-veil helped his friend Georgo' Kyte with the detective end of the case. Togellier they got tlie affidavits, secured copies of contracts, searched records and one way and another made such a neat tight-fitting legal case of It that Sir Sam and his Colonel and the Borden goyenimeut and the old shell committee could go Into any court in the land and come out with a verdict of guilty. Then these two partners in good works, disdaining all little personal rivalries, pooled their information, and while Frank Carvell sat back and faggml papers for him, George Kyte stepped out In front and made the speech of his life. All in Hansard Between the two they spread all the horrid details on Hansard. Like Jack Spratt and his wife they licked the platter clean-a mighty big plotter and a lot of licking including the licking the Borden government will get at the next general election. To get the whole case for the prosecution all the student of politics has to do now is to read the speeches of Carvell, P.ugsley, Pardee and Kyte-thoy cover the ground. Carvell and Kyte probably cover more ground but the others made good shooting too. Great heavens, what fighters those Maritime Province fellows are! They don't believe the truce should be used to cover a multitude of sins and consequently they don't use it that way. They lift the cloak and show the pillage and graft underneath. , While the boys are away in the trenchea fighting the Germans, the Home Guard on parliament hill does its bit fighting the middlemen. How is it the' Blue Noses develop so much fire?f They may have Blue Noses, but theife isn't a man of 'em has cold feet. A Bonnie Fighter Take George Kyte for example. Never was a blitheri bonnier fighter than George of Richmond. Such a thing as losing his temper George Kyte does not know. As he lays about him there is ever a twinkle in his eye. When he is merriest look out for him -for it's then he hits hardest. The only danger signal is a glint of red in his chestnut hair. If I were on the other Bide of the house I'd watch that and when it lit up I'd say "Ware George!" As tor the rest you wouldn't find in a day's journey, a milder, gentler, more humane man than the one who administered the knock out to the Borden government. How quickly yet how mercifully he did It! One to the solar plexus, that is to say to the shell 'committee, another to the point of the jaw, Colonel J. Wesley Allison, another just above the .heart, said heart being Major General Sir Sam Hughes. Three swift punches and all was over. The gov. ernment pottered, tottered, crumpled and went down for the full count. To get away from these prize-ring metaphors and put it in plain English, Sir Thomas White who had rashly ventured into a discussion where the Hon. Robert Rogers feared to tread, thereby sacrificing to his pride of dialectic, the reputation he had won as a sensible finance minister who minded his own business-^Slr Thomas 1 "repeat, went back on the whips' arrangement to take a vote and moved the adjournment of the debate which was a sure sign that the government Your Ninety-First B i r t h d a y- how are you going to celebrate it? You can live to celebrate it by eating the right kind of foods. Give Nature a chance. Stop digging your grave with your teeth. Cut out heavy meats, starchy foods and soggy pastries and eat Shredded Wheat Biscuit. It supplies all the nutriment for work or play with the least tax upon the digestive organs. ^ Made in Canada'. was gasping for air. After a tow sad looks tho cabinet filed mournfully out humming under their breath, "Nearer My God, to Thee." "Downward Cliria-tian Soldiers," "Shells Wo Gather at the HIver," and other fumilinr and appropriate stanaas. A two o'clock, in the morning a cabinet meeting was held but no two o'clock In the morning courage was engendered. They were melancholy, discouraged, bewildered. Their mood, if one might judge it from their faces as George Kyte soared high, draping his long tale In a graceful strangle hold around their necks-their mood as the people In the gallery saw it was one of pain and surprise, mingled with n hollow feeling at the pit of the stomach. The premier was obviously distressed. The finance minister wore a look of dls-gtist at tho sordid story. Tho Hon. Robert Rogers smiled faintly, sardonically, for wasn't that ancient enemy Sir Sam getting his at last. So the Honorable Bob smiled as a man who doesn't run away can afford to smile at one who does run away like Sir Sam, who at the very moment his coUeagjies were being bombarded for his actions and transactions was some three thousand miles away from the fire-zone, hobnobbing with Baron Rothschild ai\d his fellow millionaires In London. Yes Sam had run away and all tho comfort the cabinet had of him at this critical moment was the smell ho left behind. A\l these thoughts were,behind the Honorable Bob's dark and brooding smile. As for the Honorable Arthur Jlelghen. he was plunged into a green sickness of despair-no more steam in L'll Arthur, at least not Just then. The other cabinet ministers looked as if it was all newS' to thom-perhaps it was-^Sam is a hard man to keep track of-but they didn't enjoy It any mora on that account. That kind of news takes tho gimp out of any cabinet, news of a naughty brother who boasts that he has them all by tlie short wool and dares them to get rid of him as they did of Garland and Foster. Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive! And how much more tangled the web is when a .Major Genei-al, a master of tactics, does the weaving! Yes, Sam's net Is a strong net-it will drag them all down. If Kyte's charges were news to the government it was the government's own fault. All the government had to do was to look up the files in the munition board's office where the contracts still remain uncancelled by which Colonel J. Wesley Allison and his distinguished associates, E. B. Caldwell, Benjamin Franklin Y'oakum, B. W. Basslck, all Americans, and Eu-gend LIgnanti, a Montreal U.ute player-with Major General Sam in the backsround-split a two million dollar rake-off and presumably a three and a halt million dollar advance on twenty-three million dollars worth of order? for time fuses and graze fuses, only about ten per cent, of which have been delivered up to the present date. These orders were placed by the shell committee on June^9, last year, with the American Ammunition Company and the International Fuse Company, two mushroom outfits with only four thousand actual cash capital between them, the former organized three weeks, and tho latter just ten days before the blessings negotiated by Colonel J. Wesley Allison arrived from Ottawa. These two Yankee,^ mushroom companies with no plant, no machinery, no buildings, and two complete sets of dummy officials, not only received orders for ?23,000,000 worth of time and graze fuses but also cash advances of over three million and a half dollars, enough to set up ten fuse factories in Canada-all this at the hands of a minister of militia who in 1911 stood for no truck nor trade with the Yankees. The contract with each company Is entered into by the shell committee, acting through Brigadier General Sir Alexander Bertram, and each contract is accompanied by a ratifying letter from Major General Sam Hughes, which would naturally bring hla name Into the debate even if it hadn't been there before. Up to March 14th last, the two mushroom companies-of course they are peddling the orders out-had not delivered more Uian $2,400,000 worth of fuses, a little over ten per cent, of their allotment and though the time clauses In their contracts have been flagrantly violated, the contracts still remain uncancelled, At this stage of tho game, with three million dollars and a half cash advance In hand, three milllpn and a half of Canadian money for time fuses for which Canadian soldiers must wait at a bitter cost of blood and jialn, and only %2,-400,000 worth of fuses delivered, these two favored companies could go out of buslnesn altogether, pocket their profits on the fuses, already made, perhaps a million dollars, keep the cash advance amounting to another two millions clear cream and let the Canadian goyernment whistle for Its money back. If the contracts are cancelled that Is what they will probably do. The way Colonel Allison and his helpers have got things fined up, they stand to win whatever happens. As a mat ter of fact, as far b,ack as June 10th, 1915, nine days before the contracts were signed with the two companies, a profit sharing partnership of negO' tlatlng middlemen, consisting of E. B. Caldwell, president of the American Ammunitions Company; Benjamin Franklin Yoakum of New York and R. W. Basslck of Bridgeport, Conn., was busy not only counting its chick ens but actually dividing them before they were hatched. The commission of ton per cent, on an anticipated eleven million dollar order was split this way-Yoakum $475,000, Basslck $275,000, and Caldwell $250,000. Such keen foliowa, or tho other keen people they stood for, would hardly forgot to share uii. the cash advance at the same tirao. 1"hls same fl. P, Yoakum'; who took the long end In the mlUtou dollar wilt, figures as partner In another ' proflt-takln^ trlumxiiilpfenited Dbort ly.a^terth9^war began and consisting of.lilmselt, J. Wesley Allison, and Eugene LIgnanti, sometime flute player or piccolo blower at the Ritz-Carl-ton IJotel, Montreal. Who Is Yba-kimj?-. He BecniH to bo spread over all the combinations, In private Uto he la a curb-broker in Now York; Ottawa knows him as a frequent visitor to the militia department on business so mysterious that ho never registered at.a hotel but always slept in a private car nf the Broad street slatiou. Whoae private car, by tho way? Lignanti,- the flute .player, who fell out with hU followers last September �-hence the disclosure of profits- probably put In all the real money Uiat was In the combination. He was a saving man and here was a chance to make enough to retire froui the Hute business for ever on the investment of a' very snmll capital. LIk-nanti took a chance, it was tho best chance ha ever took in his life. When he drew out of the partnership he had claims for $216,000 in commissions and n commission on shells which he commuted for $50,000 si)0t casli. On contracts that LIgnanti knew of himself, Allison and Yoakum stood to split $1,000,000 In commissions between thom. All these facts the government could have learned by looking up the records In the office of tho numitlons board: That groat and good man Chairman Flavelle must have known tho facts although he did not cancel the contracts or otlierwlse act on the guarantee clauses. Moreover, George Kyte, being a good sport, save the government fair warning a week before he announced at a public meeting just about where he was going to laud -the punch. Even at that the government was caught unprepared, being very much like Belshazzor of old who went on Belshazzerlng in spite of prellmlnarj- notices on the walls and elsewhere. No doubt nels-hazzer thought that when the occa. sion arose his solicitor general would explain everything. Oh, well, you all know what happened to Belshazzer. . . . H. F. G.

It costs less to buy, less to lay, less to maintain and less per year of life. Because of tremcndoiis production (the General makes one third of all the roll roofing niade in America), and because of economies effected by enormous resources, modern machinery and favorably located mills, the General is able to make the best ruofing at the lowest cost. CERTAIN-TEED koofing is the General's own product-from the raw materials to the finished rolls, it is made in the General's huge mills. It is niade of the best quality roofing felt, thoroughly saturated with the General's own blend of soft asphalts and coated with ai^' impervious covering of harder asphahs. This keeps the inner satur^Jtion soft, and prevents the drying out process so destructive to ordinary roofing. That's why CERTAIN-TEED outlasts other roofing. It is guaranteed for 5,10 or IS years, according to ply. Experience proves that it lasts longer. CERTAIN-TEED is sold by responsible dealers everywhere at reasonable prices.
