GENEROSI1TOF TORONTO NAN Toronto', Dec. six hundre.1! officers and men of the Queen's Own; i Rifles are to visit England next; vt-ar, as intimated in The Star last; night, on the invitation of Sir Heurv i M. Pellatt. the commanding officer, i are not'going on any holiday excur-' sion, judging from the plans outlined! 'by those who have the matter in train at the Union Station till the conclusion, of the manoeuvres at Ald- ershot it will be one continued per- iod- of hard training. For some two years or so, Sir Henry has intended sending a contingent from his regi- ment to have actual experience among j British soldiers at home. The men will not be distributed! among other regiments as reported, but will be given quarters of their own. The entire expense of taking the men to England will be borne by j Sir Henry, the Home Government cn- ly allotting them quarters and a place j in the manoeuvres. There will be little or no time for sightseeing, un- i til the exercises are over, when Sir i j St. Thomas, Ont., Dec. treating his niece, under 16 years of, year and a half in the Central prison. Brandt, of Rodney, charged with aiis- age, was 'sentenced to-day to one' The girl is in a delicate condition. Henry will take them to London for j a few days' fun. No trouble is expected in raising j the full 600, for, although the mea i will not be on pay, there is nearly-a year in which they can make arrange- ments, an-ci 3s it is intended to be a patriotic event, it is thought that employers will help the men to get away for the occasion. The men will be selected for their I height and physical development and i condition. It isvintended to pick men from 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet in height, if possible, and -of the best i physical condition. Ex-members ot j the regiment are eligible. Sir Henry hopes to give the :-nen such an experience as will help fit j them for positions as officers in any of the Canadian regiments of militia. He, himself, will be in command, and i is to go into as stiff of j training as the men themselves. I All the arrangements have been made by Sir Henry with the War Oi- lice in London, Eng., through the Governor-General and the Militia Department at Ottawa. The men wrl leave Toronto on August 15th, and go to Quebec for ten days' prelimin- ary training. They will then go straight to Alders-hot and remain in England till Sept. 20th. The event' marks the 50th anniversary of the j formation of the regiment. i it was thought, at first, that the I Government would bear part of the! cost, but this is not so, as it would j be impossible for the authorities ..to pick out any one regiment and favor it. in this manner. All but the minor details of the trip are arranged, the visit is an assured event. I LYCEUM THEATRE W. L.
