The appeal reads in pare: "You have long known, the record of the present government. Their ten? nre'bf office has been'marked by ex- incpmpetency and whole- sale corruption. A chance is now af- forded to save British Columbia as you are rescuing unhappy Belgium. Jt is not a fight for parties, but of the people against official -wrong-doing." It is time for a change in B.

THE CARE FOR RURAL CREDITS The assistant secretary of Agriculr ture for the United States says: "I believe that I am not over-stating the matter when T say that a rural "is 'as essential''to the further1; development of agriculture in this country as is a widespread appli- cation of scientific'methods in agricul ture. .Bill Smith needs" more money more men out in Lethbridge and the miners the Frank and Blairmore mines have given an ultimatum to the operators. None realize better than the oper- ators a general strike would mean. The mines are at present very short handed, and a two or three 'weeks shutdown would mean the scattering of half the present working force and a possible delay of months in filling the vacant places. The operators, in spite of their dec- laration not to deal with the miners' representatives until tlie men are working, have been holding various meetings and have certainly been con- sidering some moves. Last night their session lasted until one "o'clock and thfs morning they were in session from 10.30 to 12.30- The result of their deliberations are held secret. If they were in the nature of definite proposals to the miners they would probably be submitted to th. execu- tive and thence to the mine locals for approval before being made public.

Shakespeare, 24 years old, a son ot Mrs. Charles 0. Shakes- peare, who is widely known in social circles in Philadelphia, died of infan- tile paralysis at the Brynmawr hospi- tal. He was the first adult stricken with the malady in that city. Court circles particularly, and Win- nipeg generally, were shocked when it became known that Justice Hag- gart, member of the court of appeal, and former member of parliament for Winnipeg, had to undergo a second operation for cancer of the throat and tongue, at Rochester, Minn.

The Great Eastern Railroad, of one of whose ships Capt.

Ritchie, of issuing a pros- pectus of the Bonnie Brae Coal com- pany, as director, containing state- ments which he was to have known to be false.

In sequel to the case, Mr. Phillips is im- mediately starting an action against Dr. Ritchie for malicious prosecution, suing him for one of the largest amounts ever received by a plaintiff in any western Canada action, against a railway company, the sum of obtained by Dr. F.

Story of Treachery Sir Roger Casement acquired re- markable notoriety since the outbreak of war through his attempts to asso- ciate Irishmen with the ..cause of Ger- many. He was born in September, 1864, and -between 1895, and 1913 he held positions as British in Lorenzo Marques, the Congo tree State, and Para, and as Consul-Gen- eral at Rio de Janeiro, He was the exposer of the Putumayo atrocities. In November of 1914 he appears to have reached Berlin after a visit to the United States, and, according to a coiGinunicme issued by the German Foreign Office on November 20, and published officially in the Nortft-Ger- man Gazette, he then conferred with the Kaiser's authorities in regard to the future of Ireland in case of a successful German invasion of the United Kingdom. He asked for the utterance, regarding the intentions of Germany towards Ireland, of a declar- ation designed "to relieve the anxie- ties aroused among his compatriots throughout the world, and especially in Ireland and America, by disquieting representations, emanating from re- sponsible British quarters."

This was a hundred-page tirade of an appeal for a "German-American Irish Alliance" and it is stated to have been, officially circulated by the German Foreign Office. At the end of 1914 the pamphlet was being press- ed into the hands of every American whom the German system of propa- ganda coultl reach. During the later months of last year British prisoners of war returning from Germany gave several descrip- tions of the attempts made by Sir Roger Casement to induce Irish pris- oners to join an Irish Brigade. Pri- vate Moore, of the R.A.M.C, who laud- ed at Tilbury on October 7, said that Irishmen in the camp at Limtmrg had been starved with the object of get- ting them to join this "brigade. They were visited by Sir Roger, who read a document stating what he intended to do for Ireland, but of the men in the camp fewer than 50 were ready to listen to him, and these few were of no character and not lit to be soldiers..
