Page a BRIIISH NAVY PLANS 10 OIL FOR FUEL BIG GAIHEIG 0 H.B. STORE GERS I^ndon, Aug . 1.1.-Since steam was, substituted for sails, and Jron Bhifs for wooden ones, the British navy has undertaken no more daring change than its plans to adopt oil for fuel In place of coal. All naval men and scientists recognize the fact, and the announcement mad� to parliament by Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty, has aroused a debate which Involves the future safety ot the United Kingdom. The soientiflc men seem to agree that oil is the naval fuel of the future, but the question asked is whether Britain should lead the nations' to that future. She is the pioneer In building Dreadnoughts, but some authorities hold that the Dreadnought was a colossal mistake, and that the era of mammoth ships and resulting enormous budgets might have been avoided If the strongest naval power had not led the way and forced her rivala to follow. Whether an Island kingdom, with a world's supply of coal to drsvw upon in the island which is its naval base, should abandon coal for another form ot fuel, all of which must be imported from abroad, is the vital point of discussion. There are no oil fields In the United Kingdom, and tew lu the British Empire. The North American continent, southern Russia and the Far Bast, principally Morocco and Murma, would have to be the main sources of supply, with some help from Roumanla and the British island of Trinidad. Asiatic oil must be.shipped through Suez and the Mediterranean, where it would have to run the gauntlet with the Japanese fleet in the first stage of the journey, In the event of poaalble wars, and then pass through the Mediterranean, where British naval power Is steadily declining as Italian and Austrian building progresses. American oil must be brought across the At., lantic, where the American fleet in the beginning ot the voyage, and perhaps the German at this end, would have to be reckoned with. The advantages of oil are set forth attractively. by the naval expert of the Pall Mall Gazette, The coraple-mehts of vessels Could be reduced one-third by giving up stokors, uuil the increasing difficulty of enlisting enough men thereby met. There would be larger and healtliler living space for the men on ships, and the hard and dirty work of^'teoallng would be no more. Strategical possibilities of war vessels woujdjje; increased by greater speed and socreoy of movement.

' .4sked as to what geology has to teach with regard to the creation ot ^he world, he 'said: . "Hardly- anyone bellevea today, as they did a year or so ago, that the account of the creation given in Genesis Is to be interpreted llt,erally. We have many clergymen interested in our geological work, and they find no hindrances in this. One does not now, as formerly, hear It asserted that the world \yas created in 4004 B. C. Various dates have been assigned as to that of creation, varying from ten million to one hundred million years ago. It must all be a matter ot speculation. And by the expression 'creation' different people seem to mean different things. Most people, verbally, probably understand it that when there was first human life."

The supervisor's report was read. Culverts have been put in, fences over bridges, grading from Broadway to Second St. West connecting the turn-piked road from Lethbridge to Broadway, but yet the poles are in the centre so that the graded road cannot be used. The poles were ordered moved one year ago, but they seem to have a monopoly on sticking. The marBhall was instructed to have the new Rex Theatre put in a side exit door, complying with the town and provincial bylaw; as It is, the place Is a fire trap. Mrs. Toombs, president ot the Women's Home Institute, asked the council it they would make an appropriation towards a public library in town, and .also if the town would furnish the water for a drinking fountain. The town will furnish the water' for next year, but they are not disposed to make an appropriation for the library at present. T. W. Harris, marshal!, supervisor and public works man, handed In-his resignation, asking the council to act, and that It take place Aug. 31. The council asked Mr. Harris to reconsider for ten days when they will meet to strike a rate. In regard to the pool hall act, Mr. Ostlund said that since the province granted a license to the pool men regulating them in a general way, the' town could close the hall at six o'clock if they wanted to. The payroll' was passed with the exception of an account of *i.i!00 froni the C. P. R. for water rentals.
