BEFORESEASON Complaint^From Grassy Lake- AVant Game Guardian Appointed TO GAIN IN SENDING TROOPS TO niA Ottawa, Aug. 12.-In connection with the decision to send a Canadian Expeditionary Force to Liberia It is pointed out by those familiar with the situation in that portion of the Russian empire wliore resistance to the aims of the Central Powers is being continued that should the designs of the Central Powers be realized, Siberia with its coast and important railway system would fall under German control. Canada lias an extensive Pacific Coast line and an interest in the de-velopinent of the Far East. It follows that she is deeply concerned in a movement which will settle the future government of so important a portion of the coast o� the "ocean of the future." Siberia in soil, climate and ngricul-tural capabilities is remarkably like the prairie provinces of Canada. It is thinly populated at present but is being rapidly colonized and is destined before many years to become exceedingly productive as it has a great railway system which connects Western Europe with the Pacific Ocean, there is sure to develop an enormous trade which will profoundly affect the commercial development of the Pacific. If Germany gets in control of this region and organizes its trade this future development, it is believed here, will proceed on lines hostile to this country. On the other hand, if Russia is helped to become a free country Canada can look forward ta a legitimate share in this future trade. There also would be military danger to be appreliendod from the establishment of a country under German control and organization upon the Pacific. Should'Germany establish her control over Siberia as she is planning to do, the war would be appreciably prolonged by the supplies she would find there. Russia's stock of wheat has been greatly depleted. - Counteract Message of Dublin-ites-in a Way of An Apology. , Many complaints are coming in from the Grassy Lake district that irro-Eponsible iyinters are killing off ducks and chicken before the opening of the season. Aoplicatlon has been made \i^r the appointment of a game guardian to put an end to such -practices. The duck season opens on Liibor Day, Monday, Sept. 2. The chicken season opens on Nov. 1 for one month only. Recent reports from all parts of the south country arc that the lakes are just swarming with ducks, while the chickens are again to be found in large numbers. .;. ���>*��� The Oddfellows met Court Unity, A.O.F,, in two Interesting games of carpetball last evening, the. teams taking one each.
