COURT HOUSE AVENUE SOUTH QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT IN BRITISH HOUSE OF COMMONS of the strangest stories that has heen given birth by the great war is that of the Island or Herm, the leasing of which to i Ger- Eoliliers appearing in snapshots of!

Mr. Haulmtou locking for thorn. I oostt-il the. letter here on May 27th. ________________. It was addressed to Wor- i cestcrshirc, but was returned to the Another "EmproBs" Relic sender alter reaching its destination and remaining ur.claimed ior several Another letter which went :nan company was recently discussed j hottom ,vitll lllc ni-fated Empress of: (lays in the House of Commons. The lease __ _ has been terminated, and British troops are billeted on the island, but Uhe question is Btiil being asked, why I was England so lax as to rent for :i an island larger than Heligoland, s" within an hour's steaming of English shores? Herm is one of the lesser Ohannti i Islands, and at one time supported a j considerable population. It is a beau- 1 ti ful spot, with an attractive shell i beach. In 1889 it was leased by the I Crown for J70 a year to the "West 'Bank Liegnitz, which in turn leased it to Prince- Bhjeher von jWahlstaat, a descendant of the illus- trious Bluchsr of Waterloo, and him- j self a German. The Prince and his: i family lived duietiy for years in the manor house on the island. Incurring the Teat displeasure of those who sought to ramble over the place, by 'closing ail save one narrow pathway on the beach, and plastering about many warnings to tresspassers. Children were born to the Princess is of the. Russian royal and one of these, a boy, be- came a naturalized British subject. At no time -was the Prince suspected of usinK his home in any operations ag- ainst England, but Wh2li the war broke the matter became one of natural agitation, culminating in the Home Secretary o'elng asked for an explana- tion by Sir William Bull. The explanation was brief. The j government .knew the name if the' 'German company holding the lease; it knew moreover, that the rent was about S1.30 a 'week: that steps hud ;heen taken to cancel this document: for some weeks' British troops ihad been on tlie island. Whether i Prince Elucher and his family had I moved from the manor house was not imade clear. j The popular outcry against the I Prince, in the opinion of the London i press generally, is unjustified, hut The Times remarks, rather sarcasti- cally that the public might be told a little more about the German com- ipany which was able to actjuire so cheaply so much good farm and pas- ture land, together with numerous cottages, not to mention the manor j house. It ajso is pointed out that the island is in the heart of the Eng- 1 ish Channel, within sight of the coast of France, about 70 miles from Port- aud and .40 from Cherbourg. It could ae used as a submarine base, though nothing of the kind appears to have been attempted. EVEN THE GERMANS ADMIT THAT TOMMY ATKINS IS A TOUGH PROPOSITION of the reaction of German officers and soldiers fighting at tha front against the tendency to belittle the fighting qualities of he enemy continue to accumulate. Soldiers' letters and returning sol- diers sp'eak in terms of high apprecia- tion of the military prowess and sol- dierly qualities of their opponents and among several hundred wounded with whom, the cofresp'ondent of the'Asso- ciated Press has talked in his visits to hospitals the'last .fortnight, no one was found "wild1 refused to credit the enemy in French and Belgian and English with bravery and military'skill.- Distinctions are drawn, it is true: the British being generally reckoned as the toughest opponents on the west front. British Press Can Get No News of Canadians .London. Deo. instruc- tions, under which the Canadian Re- cord office is precluded from impart- ing information to the press on this aide, bear somewhat harcKy upon re- latives in England ot the members of the Canadian contingent. In the case of casualties or'accidents, the' inform- ation must filter through Ottawa, though If a death'-be the subject of a coroner's inquest; the fact im pub- lished in local while .not being officially recognized. With so many members of the oon- tingea't belonging to Britain, this ar- rangement appears.to be poorly adapt- ed to the circumstances. The Canad- ian office is .Kept busy with inquiries from wives who have been deserted by their husbands, or from .mothers aotboen heard of for yean. ....Cases For Sale at Robertson's Book Store Next Lethbridge Hotel r the children a Viclrola for Christmas instead of 'Made in Germany' toys.
