Aug. Ifi.-R. B. Bennett nf Calgary, continued tho debate on the Canadian Northern bill in the house. Ho declared that the fixed charges of the system were twenty millions a year and that it would be from i> to 7 years before the company could hope to pay and have any surplus. For himself he did not see in a receivership the bogey which some members professed. "If I had the task of deciding the matter," he said. "I should not have chosen that kind of legislation. 1 should have decided on a sta- eliminated and the system would truly revert to the people." Mr. Bennett maintained that Mackenzie and Mann had never put any of their own money into the. enterprise. Mr. Bennett said he could not support the Graham amendment, calling for the adoption of foreclosure proceedings. It would he, he said, a denial of the right of the Canadian Northern to establish the value of their property before a properly constituted tribunal. To his mind the proposals suggested revolution and anarchy. N'o man should be dispossessed of his property except by the process of the law. Mr. Bennett then declared that unless Sir Thomas White's proposals were amended, a most serious injustice would be done to the Canadian people, an injustice that could not be measured in money. There should be, he said, no introduction in the legislation of the pledges of C.X.R. stock. Third parties were being introduced into the matters with whom the government has no right to deal.

A unit of which there seems to be very little known, but which is never-! theless extremely essential to the well-being of any army, is the Army Medical Corps, and Alberta has contributed many men to r'uis branch of the service. The training depot at Calgary has sent overseas over 1200 men for this work, and drafts are being continually asked for. Those men from Alberta, just like every other branch of the service, have created a record for efficiency and bravery that is very admirable indeed. The fact that out of the 100 men required from Canada per month, Alberta is asked to supply 40, will serve to illustrate the value that is attached to men from this fair province, and speaks well for the training they receive at Victoria Barracks, Calgary, which is the headquarters for Military District No. 13. The training consists ol a certain amount of squad and company drill, and a thorough instruction in stretcher bearing. Throughout the day lectures in first aid and anatomy are given by experts in this line, and practical instruction in bandaging and first aid appliances, arc given the men of this corps. The Military Hospital for Military District No. 13, is managed by the doctors and men of this corps. Another most important part of the army medical corps' duties is in sanitary work in which the men of this corps are given minute instructions. The marvelous progress made along sanitary lines in tlie present'war, is apparent when it is remembered that never before in the history of the world's wars has there beer. les.-i epidemic or fever. The record is all the more striking owing to the fact that more men are engaged in this gigantic struggle than in all the world's wars during the past two hundred years. A little reflection will convince any intelligent person of the immeiiHe amount of work entailed in keeping sanitary conditions at the front in th* best possible shape, and the number of lives saved thereby. The best possible illustration of the voluminous work of the army medical corps is to remember that the Canadian soldier, from the time he enlists until the time he is returned to his country and discharged, is under the care of the Canadian Army Medical Corps in everything that affects his health.

Aug. 1G.-'When the house met this afternoon Sir Robert Borden made the following statement: "My attention has been drawn to the statement that the Nationalist party of the province of Quebec is about to put a candidate in the field on its own behalf against Liberal and Conservative candidates, and I am told the suggestion is being made that there is some collusion between the Nationalist party of the province of Quebec and my government or the friends of my government in regard to this campaign of the Nationalist party. The suggestion is also made that because the friends of the present government and. the Nationalist party both opposed Sir Wilfrid Lauricr in the election of 1911 that there is now some connection or collusion ajjd that J my supporters and friends are in fact encouraging the Nationalist party of Quebec in the course which they are adopting. "I desire to make a most emphatic, unreserved and comprehensive denial of this. There is not and never would be a connection or collusion whatever between my friends and supporters, and those of the Nationalist party of Quebec. "I regard the attitude of the Nationalist party of Quebec in this war as unpatriotic, and I think it is the first duty of myself and my friends to assist in defeating that party and to prevent it so far as we are able from being in a position to exercise any power in Canada." London. Aug. It!.-Describing taking of Hill 70. the Daily Mall correspondent, at the front says: "Soon after dawn the Canadians had stormed and taken the whole of Hill 70. famous for one of the toughest struggles e\er fought by the Prussian (itnmls. Few battles have be ;ri launched against a more difficult front. The front covered by iho attack Is less than,two and a half miles long, to a depth of l.lim yards. The victory is complete and is acknowledged to be more telling than any present or prospective gain of ground. "The Canadians knew they would win. One of the first wounded come in insisted that he enjoyed go ing over. Another soldier had walked three miles with a hole Jn his shoulder as big as ;: cricket frail, carried himself quite gaily. | "All say that the barrage was most j scientific and made for the speed of : the advance. "Many of the charging troops ran rather than walked and the fastest men won the first rush. When the drumfire opened and the first flights ' of burning oil from our mortars had 1 burned away, the enemy swathed the field in smoke and airmen on both sides went blind. "1 watched the Germans slip into the low clouds and disappear. One captured officer said he was officially warned to be ready for an attack at �1 a.m. and was hoping his precautions were unnecessary when many men in his trench disappeared under the fury of our bombardment 40 minutes later. I am told by soldiers from the battle that an enormous proportion of the Herman dead and captured were mere boys, mostly Prussians of the K.5th. The Germans fought 'patchily.' Toward the north of the attack, strong garrisons holding strong fortresses are still keeping up an obstinate resistance. Further south, especially over Hill 70, knocked out of shape by successive bombardments, the they seldom' got close enough for fighting with the bayonet or bomb. Hour after hour thesa attacking troops Including tho Fourth Prussian Ouards, one of the elite divisions of the German army, were subjected to a frightful eoucetitr itlng fire from our artillery niv.l machine guns. Their losses were fright'ill. A veteran machine gun officer tells of having had as a target for an hour and a quarter enemy reinforcements coming up la columns tit fours for use In counter attacks. He said his men hilled more, Germans yesterday than they had seen altogether at any previous time. A prisoner said that the ground over which his battalion hail .idvanceil was thlckl/ strewn with dead. The Till Prussian division, which was in the line we attacked, no longer exists. Their losses during the several days prior /to the assault were very serious. Our fans so steadily swept their positions that ration parties refused to go tip and the men in tho trenches remained unfed. The ; total number of prlson�rs Is now con- j sklerably over four hundred. The, counter attacks ceased shortly after dark and our men slept on the ground , to | they had won and maintained! � during IK'hours of constant struggle ! against the best of Germany. The. j losses can still be spoken of as inod-I crate throughout the driving off of, I the counter attacks if often more! I costly than the original action. As: an illustration of the confused nature j of the struggle along this part of the i battle front 1 may refer to the ex- , perlenco of a colonel of an Ontario ; battalion. lie and an orderly were [ alone in a section of trench used us ; a battalion headquarters near the fir- '. ing line during one of the counter at- j tacks.
