The following interesting letter lias been received from Jim Hooker ot iUe 39th battery, by his family here; France, Oct. 29th. 191.8. Now that an opportunity is present I want to give you a: few details of my recent experiences. We have been oh the move quite a time now, trying to keep up with anU following the enemy. About eight clays ago wb came to a village that had been occupied by the enemy since August 24, 1914, and when ilrst entering the village, the people looked scared and sur prised to see ua. They thousht we were camouflaged, Huns but when their surprise was over, they rushed o'ut~and embraced liie first ones tliey met, officers or privates. They laughed and cried and nearly went crazy. They gave the troops hot coffee and everything they could, for their joy was so great, thoy never imagined that they would ever be liberated from the Huns. Before evacuation the Huns stripped the place of all livestock, even down to rabbits, fowl, dogs and cats. The first night I slept under cover In a house, the old man and' his wife made me take one of their beds and 'even dried my boots and sox for me. I remained up quite lata trying to tell them of our recent advances as they had been cut oft from communlclition With the outside world for more than four years and knew absolutely nothing except what the Hun bad lold j them and the Hun must be a hard master. ,1 have beard many stories of all. sorts ot the cruelty, punishments ania fines Inflicted upon them. The church bells would have rung in. all the villages had they not been removed by the Hun. They also took back with them all men from th age of 14 to 60. / At present we are In {and have been tor sometime) a flue country, I have never had such an office as this one, am at present in a large country house in its own groiindB. There is furnlture/l (and fine stuff too) and a piano. Thq major has a furnished room, carpet on floor, fancy tables and flnel;^ carved chairs in his xoom. The orderly's room is what I would Imagine to be a ladies' sewing and work room, large Krencli windows leading out to a verandah where there is a, lovejy country view, the other clerk and I are in clover here, we sleep on the floor but what do we care for that, a soft bed has no^iattractfon for us now, we have been used to all kinds of hard floods for so long. ,^ ' There is another thing th'at I must mention before I close, "When our infantry came through they were fighting Fritz's rear patrols from behind houses and the French folk would show theni where Fritz was and would clap their baqds when Fritz could not get them. My pen could not describe in a fitting way the scenes that occurred. I might say the- Joy and excitement of the people was a very stkrihg sight to witness and I was very much tirred and excited too. Everyone wanted to shake hands and tell us how pleased they were. The fllctures that ypu very ott�n see in the papers are no fake, as we have witnessed similar cases ourselves. I think I could go on writing for hours about it all but think these few lines will give you a fair idea ot the French people's Joy. There will,be a wonderful rejoicing when the Hun is cleared completely out ot Prance, which I think will be soon. Please tell me if you receive thia O.

ALBERIA STILL HAS CHANCE FOR TS RESOHRCES Request Natural Resources Has Not Been Finally Turned Down CANADIAN PRISONER.S FAIRLY WELL OFF LONDON, Dec. l'.-Generally the condition of Canadians repatriated is better Iflian expected. The men mostly look fairly well fed. The chief defect is the lack ot boots, and many are footsore. Altogether about ,'iOO Canadians have been brought out of Germany, being men who were marshalled and forwarded by the German authorltiee.. There must be othens hot in regular prison oampa, but wbrkihg behind the lines. Directly news of the armistice came, German troops told the prisoner-laborers to-clear but. Some made for Holland and Belgium, and, being without money and lacking clothing and boots, may have died by the wayside. Probably the fate �will never be known of many of these poor fellows. KU.MONTON; - There is a good chance of Alberta getting control of its natural resources, after all, according to .John A. Re.'.d, government efficiency officer, who returned Sunday from the inior-provincial conference at Ottawa. Nothing definite has been done yet, and tliere ifj no indication of what lines the Dominion authorities will take in the'^settlement ot the question, but their attitude, says Mr. Reid, was distinctly favorable, and tlie request of the weslern provinces has by'-so means been turned down, I de.splle reports and statements that i would s�em to t)0int that way. The situation is one that has real groHndn for optimism, and the conference marked a decided gain from the west's point of view.

Just now I am living in one of the recently, captured vllijiges which the enemy hurriedly evacuated without time to take all the civilians with him. Some ot our boys were first in liere, and they got a fine reception. But Fritz blew up ail the bridges and factories and left hidden mines; all over the' place.

', The Hudson's Bay Co. is giving away a $10^.00 Victory Bond for the nearest estiinate. Uio several premiers and the feileral ' representatives, it .geems, the latter : mot Keparatoly with the western men, ': iinfl assurance was given them that an . orilorin-council would be paasfjrt cm-i bodying the terms upon which the Do-' ininion government would bo willing ;io turn over the natural rnsourceD. j.luHl what these terms will b� is not yet known, hut there is at least a pos-I sibllity that they will be such as will satisfy both the western and tlie eastern provinces. There was no unfriendliness towards the west on the part of the nraritlrae provinces and Quebec and Ontario, says Mr. Reid. Their position was simply that they asked far cash subsidies if the west were given its resources and a continuance of the present subsidies. It was therefore a matter of how much llio federal treasury cpuUi .stand in payments to the provinces. The question of a possible reduction in the amounts paid to Alberta and its sister provinces was not raised. Fair Settlement Expected Mr. Reid took with him to Ottawa a statement he had compiled showirig the revenues that had already been produced by the crown lands m the west. According to these figures, which were submitted to the. conference, the Dominion had received no less than $13,000,000 from sales of lands and the administration of other resources in the three provinces. The request put forward by the western delegates was that the resources be given to the provinces and the subsidies continued In lieu ot tha crown lands that had 'already boon alienated. 'I'he reaaonableness of thin request was not questioned, so far ae the Dominion authorities were coil-cernod, and the promise finally made by lion. Arthur Meighen, minister ot the interior, was tatcen 'as ground for expecting some feasible settlement Of the matter in due course, Conference Did Good A better understanding Of the attt. nule ot the Ottawa tifficials was gaitf^ ed by the provincial representativesf as a'result of the meeting, says Mr,; Reid, and on the other hand Ottawrtv undei;atand� aud appreciates more'-fuily the way the provinces feel in the matter. Id this alone there would be' a jnutna! advantage, and it wag felt that the prairie country had good reason to expect .some tangible gain from It. No insuperable difficulty had arisen In the course ot the discussion, and the promised orrleriu-council would be awaited with interest. Until it came n^ing could be said as tn how tlie quditlon would he disposed oj for the federal authorities had not announced their decision. . ACCEPTS RESIGNATION WASHINGTON.
