A VALUABLE MAP In these war days, when tho question of tho Canadian grain supply is so much in the public mind, when tho western crop has become a vital factor in tho national life of Canada and a rigid supervision is being exorcised by the Dominion govornmont over the disposal of our wheat; it is perhaps Important that the extent and location of tho many granaries of tho prairie provinces should bo thoroughly known and appreciutod by the general public as well as to those more directly interested. A now edition of an official publication of tho govornmont, which will tend to effect this purpose has just been issued by tho natural resources intelligence branch of .the department of the Interior, Ottawa, ThiB consists of a map of the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta showing the position of each city or town containing one or more grain olevators. Tho three groat transcontinental railways, tho Canndlon Pacific railway, Grant Trunk Pacific railway, and Canadian Northern railway, are indicated by blue, rod and green linos, respectively, -while under thee namo of each point, the extent of its elevator cupacity is given in bushels. It Is a most timely and useful publication and copies may be obtained gratis, on application to the superintendent, natural resources intelligence branch, department of the interior, Ottawa. LDIERS' VOTE MEASURE Ottawa, Aug. IS.-The now military service bill, the minister of justice explained, gave the vote to every ono on active service Irrespective of their ago or sex. Minors will vote as will nlsb nurHOH. Indians In khaki will register tholr ballots.. The names of the candidates will not be presnnted on the ballots. The soldiers may vote for the government, for the opposition, or for an individual candidate, when they know the names of the candidates in the constituency to which they belong. However every possiblo means will be taken to let the soldiers know the names of tho candidates. Hugh Guthrie said that tho ballots should be printed on blanks because the ballot as proposed would work out to tho advantago of the straight party men. There would be candidates in the approaching elections, lie said, whoso relationship to tho parties would be difficult for voters removed from the scene of tho main contest to understand. Mr. Dohnrty thought that tho provision for a vote for independent candidates would cover tho objection. Mr. Dohcrty explained that a period of four weeks would elapse betweon nomination day and voting day and the soldier can cast bis ballot at any tinio that is convenient to him to do BO. Replying to a question by Hon. Charles Mnrcil, Mr. Doherty explained that the bill like tho existing legislation, provides for the appointment of Bcrutineering, both by tho government and the leader of the opposition to be suro of tho fairness of the vote. Provision is also made for the recounts. They will be supervised by a judge to be appointed by tho lord chief ,'ustlce of England. Hon. A. K. MacLean referred to a special committee of the house. Sir Robert Borden nodded his assent to the proposal. Hon. Charles Marcil asked the minister of militia if be were correctly reported at Camp Borden 83 saying: "We are ready to put tho conscription bill into force at once." "Yes, that is correct," replied Sir Edward Kemp. Receipts From South Alberta Constituencies Constituency Acadia .. . Bow Valley ... Calgary...... Cardston .. Claresholm ... Cochrane .. ..
