This isn t cribbed � _ - from Foster's" predictions elU'.er. Celebrations in honor of the heroes of St. Julien were conspicuous by their absence here. Surely some organization might have arranged a program to fittingly commemorate the occasion. The Allison graft enquir>- opens tomorrow. Why should there be an enquirj' when Col. Allison, on advice froni his lawyers, has denied ever having made a cent in rake-offs from thfe Canadian or British governments. An extraordinary fish story at least Ottawa, April, 23.-Sir George Foster, minister of trade and coramerco, was tho chief speaker at a larp;e meeting held in the Russel House today in commemoration of the battle of Ypres. Sir George made a strong plea for peace and the discontinuance of strife In Canada during the progress of the war. Sir George Foster said the scttin? in the war was very different from that of any previous war In which Canadians had taken part. It wtis a world war in which the peace-loving Canadians were taking part along with the veterans of the world, facing the highly-trained troops of the Teutonic empire intoxicated with victory. Not seven months from a peaceful state of life and with no warlike traditions behind them, tho Canadians stood firm day and night in Montreal, April 22.-Although tho pot6ntlal wealth of Canada's natural resoiiiices l.t known to be marvelous, ouly a small portion of Uiose have been exploited, and apart from tho work'dono by the government geological survey, tho scientific InvoBtigatlon of ChAnda's resources with a view to practical development has been frag-modtnry and almost Immaterial. The- lesson of tho titanic conflict now' raging In Europe has brought hon^e' how much the Dominion has to loafii jrom some of the European couhtfles with which sho Is nt war, as, foh instance, the ure-eniinenco of Gormtjny In manufacturing, .Aletallur-glcdl hnd electrical development, due promlhontly to the thoroughness with which chemical research was pursued In that country, a pre-emlnenco which resulted In a large and prolltable her manufacturers not only ut homo, but all over tho world. Mineral and Chemical Activity T\\ki wealth and property of the nation's and empires of the world will be gauged by their mineral and chemical "activities and production; when peace' Is restored there will be a stronj? effort to provide the reqiilre-nients of the British empire and her nllleis from friendly sources, and if the war were unhappily to be long drawn out, the production of Cana-dlaii- resources might become needed to success Iti peace and war than armies of hers. CP. R. and Technical Schools Tlio Canadian Pacific Untlway company has tachnlcal schools attached to Itb great shops, and at Trail tin-(lotriliany has developed a great chemical and metallurgical laboratory and hydro-electrlo equipment equal to anything on the continent. IMiese are, however, local activliie?, and,(he time has come, in the opinion of Lord Shaughnesay,- when a Dominion � wide organization should bo formed for tho scientific research of Canada's mineral metal, hydro-electric and chemical resources which will result In tho practical applications to Industry of many minerals heretofore neglected or exported for manufac-|ture to other countries, or by-products In existing industries, and of other natural resources which were neglected or Insufiiclently exploited. The waste of straw, for Instance, of our wheat fields, of flax fibre, of lumber, lit per cent, of tho product of which has been wasted in the forest or at tho mill, while In tungsten melybdenlte; graphite, oil shale, mica magnetite, tale, felspar and. other minerals there Is a field for the profitable Investment of much larger capital than at present. The Research Work The Canadian Pacific Railway company aims to secure the mobilisation of the ablest and most scientific and chemical brains of the Dominion, and to associate them with a central organization to direct the activitlpa of all the scientists and experts en^agRd in research work In all parts of tho Dominion.

Hynds editor of tho Lums-den News ecord stated over the telephone that a follower of Isaac Walton had lifted a pike out of the water which is rushing down Main street there ou account of tlie flood. The fish, which was over two feet long, was hoisted from tho water in front of the News-Record office. The "community" bathtub long tho principal ablutionary facility of the Washington logging camps, has boon placed on the skids and will soon sildo into oblivion. The Coates-Fordney Logging company has greased, tho skids by installing in all of its camps a shower bath car, metal lined, and capable of accommodating several where the tub could accommodate but one,' . ; , ' Twelve nurses at'St. Luke's hospital Chicago, all memtens of a gradiiating class, have been suspended for a month for a hazing escapade which they conducted In Kn Klux Klan style.

Surely there must be some mistake! It looks aa if the protest of the I^ethbridge Board of Trade regarding -Arbor Day brought forth fr.uit. The miniater of education has been empowered to set the date for .\rbor Day 80 that it will suit all districts. This ia the right move. The German government is "stalling off" the answer to the American note as long as possible in the hope that something will intervene to take the American inlrid oft the situation. But the scrap o' paper bunch will have to toe the mark this time or Uncle Sam will know the reason why. hospital building, pommelled vigor ously and partly undressed for a cold ducking. The young woman's room was turned topsy turvy and much of the furniture in it was damaged. shrapnel and retired only at the word of command. They retired with their ranks decimated, but with tho satisfaction that they know tholr duty and did it. Such deeds, said Sir George, form the background and fruitful storehouse out of which the history and character' of a nation is formed. God grant that the meraorj' of those deeds may stir some - sluggish hearts in Canada today and shame some shirkers. Sir George was proud that he had four nephews doing their duty. Let every tongue of discord die, he added, let every mischievous note of agitation and strife be stilled, let everything of a party -or sectional nature be dropped. After the war other lessor disputes and wrongs can be settled. Sir George said that the burden of the war had not yet settled cn Canada's shoulders. Still there was rea.-son for good cheer. The forces wtirk-ing for ultimate success were infinitely more powerful now than ever before. In the meantin:o every Canadian should either prepare to � fight or do his duty in sonio other w^y.
