COMMENT ON LL-I Key West, Fla.--"For five years I suffered from irregularities, with ter-.rible pains and an lawful weakness in my back.

Apr. 10.-Editorials in the morning newspapers here use Premier Lloyd George's speech, showing the gravity of the military situation and the necessity for additional manpower, for an appeal to Americans to speed up all war work, especially ships and transport troops. The World says: "The daring frankness characters-! tic of the great British leader lias! not over-stated facts. The bitterness, the gravity, the danger of the German I attack have, as he said, stirred the | resolution and determination of the American people as nothing until now has done." The Times says: "It is worth any Irishman's while who hopes some time to see the Irish people happy and contented to use all his powers of persuasion in favor of a peace acceptance of conscription." The Tribune, arguing for the necessity of shipping says: "We have man-power to give almost without limit. Sending 5,000,000 or even 10,000,000 men to the battle lines is an enterprise that involves technical difficulties only." | IS FLOATED 1 Halifax, Apr. 10.-The steamer Caracas which was driven ashore and sunk at the time of the Mont Blanc explosion in Halifax harbor, was floated yesterday.

Chief Justice Harris and Wallace Xesbitt, K.C., who are to determine the value of six hundred thousand shares of stock of the C.N.R.. being taken over by the Dominion government, returned to their task this morning. As originally arranged the commission was to report its award not to exceed $10,000,000 by April 1, but this becoming evidently impossible, an extension to May 1st was made. W. N. Tilley, K.C., chief government counsel, asked his first witness, Joseph P. Newell, railway engineering expert, why he had studied the value of the C.X.R. stock on the basis of the earning power and why not its reproduction value. Mr. Butler immediately sought to throw an obstruction in the path of Mr. Tilley's progress by an objection. Sir William Meredith: "It may help. We will take the evidence subject to the objection." Mr. Newell declared that if a railway could not earn income it would not matter what it originally cost or what it would cost to reproduce it in valuing the stock. If Prof. Swain, who had valued the C.N.R. at $397,-000,000 were valuing the same road today he probably would have to add $200,000,000 to that figure. The upsetting of values throughout the world, due to the war, probably would increase the value of the property by 50 per cent. Mr. Tilley: "While the value of the stock has gone the other way?" Mr. Newell: "Quite the opposite way." L NOT TAKE MONEY Vancouver, Apr. 10.-M. A. Mac-Donald, former attorney general, yesterday made a statement in the house on the campaign fund which he obtained from It. ./. McKenzie of the Canadian Northern. Mr. MacDonald declared he had never sought nor obtained a contribution from any railway or corporation. He added that the burden of financing the Liberal party for a number of years had rested on his shoulders.

WITH WHEAT SEED A wild German spy rumor got a flying start in some manner at Car-inangay this morning, and beenmo so serious that A. K. Qtiayle, editor of the Carmangay Sun, called the Herald to get at the facts. It seems that the farmers of the Carmangay district had been told from some source that spring wheat seeded at the Experimental Farm at Lethbridge two weeks ago had not yet sprouted, and the reason was that German spies had so tampered with the formalin with which seed is treated for smut that, the germ of the wheat kernels had all been killed. Supt. Fairfield when asked, laughingly stated that there wasn't a word of truth in the rumor: In the first, place no spring wheat had betra sown at the Experimental Farm until last Saturday, April 6th. And while German spies might tamper with the formalin supply, it would be highly improbable that they had done so. Mr. Fairfield further pointed out that it was possible by the use of too sirong a solution of formalin to kill the seed genu, though if the directions were followed this would not result. The rumor was seriously taken by the Carmangay farmers and they will be glad to know that it is without foundation. PRESENT DECORATIONS Calgary, Apr. 10. - An imposing ceremony took place at Victoria Park this afternoon when Lieut.
