I Cruisers Seized - ' caused an immediate Immense sensation, especially as earlier dispatches from Waahington had led the public to believe that Pre-Bident Wilson had decided to wait until an overt act was committed before taking action. Silence ^Regarding Navy \ Washington, Feb. 3. - Orders iwere issued late today by the navy : department forbid-ding navy officials everywhere from divulging any movements of United States war vessels.

It might be pointed out that, when the city found it, necessary, last year, to ilncrease this large indebtedness for the purpose of installing a filtration plant in connection with its water system; it^ was i-apparentlyt considered advisable to raise the money required for this absolutely necessary work, by the issue of treasury notes secured by the arrears of taxes, thus, in a way meeting this expenditore out of the city's current revenue. The board at that time completely concurred with the course then adopted in not increasing the debenture indebtedness. The flnaacial position of the city has not changed -to any' appreciable extent since then,: and the hoard believes that the view apparently taken by the city at that.time, not to incur, for the present at least, any further deibenture indebtedness, except for absolute neces-Bities, is a sound and correct one. After a careful consideration of the matter, the board regrets' has come to the conclusioc that it-should not grant permission for raising the money now sought to he raised under ihe bylaw now under considei-atlon. Yours truly, , POARD OF PUBLIC UTILITY F" COMMISSIONERS. 9he.mayor says he intends to answer the'letter, setting forth his reasons for disagreeing with the views expressed.

All the/taeat of the whole wheat in a digpsti-^ble form, A perfectSneal at ilowestcost. i Made in Canada What It Will Cost This .promise of indemnity is going to cost the government 1150,000 or more. At the middle of November there were 4,600 union miners in District No. 18, and there are at least that numbei" yet. The government war bonus from Nov. IGth to March 3ist covers a period of practically * 20 .weeks.fc At S1.75 per week the bonus per mSh will be ?35, which for 4600 men works out to $161,000. The operators association's understanding of the settlement is set forth in the follo^v-ing satement handed out today": ^'' "In connection with the controversy bebveen-the operators arid miners-of District 18, the operators have repeatedly stated publicly that-, their position was that agreements between employers and employees should not be treated as "scraps of paper," hut should be fulfilled. In this connection, they have not changed their position. "In view of. strong representations made to us at this time from government officials and others that a national crisis e.^isted at the moment, which was largely brought abo,ut by the unfortunate action of the members of the government in agreeing that the miners wijuld' receive what increase was shown in the cost of living as between two dates, even in the face of a written agreement, and without having taken up the auestion as to earning of the men or having In any way consulted the operators, who were entirely ignored by the government as to the appointment of the commission or the scope of its enquiry, the operators, on the assurances from the government that tliey would he fully indemnified against the payment ot a war bonus-of ?1.75 per man per week from Nov. IG, ] 916, to March 31, 1917, have agreed to continue to operate the mines and to pay the said war bonus, providing they wejre not called upon to furni-sh any of the money necessary for the iP.urpbaes of such' payment; it being understood, however, that all the men will immediately return to work and continue operations until the expira tion of their agreement. "In short, the operators have agreed to be the medium to distribute the funds furnished by- the government to cover the additional war bonus." The Herald understands that Hon, Mr. Crothers Intimated tliat a special tax would probably be imposed on sifielters and such concerns to meet the increase, while he hsL% intimated to the operators that he would like if they would raise the price of coal to cover the bonus from now on. All the miners in the district are back at work this morning with the exception of' those at tlie North American Collieries at Coalhurst who did not receive official notification in time. Yesterday the city was busy with six teams, and five dump carts delivering coal to householders who. were but of fuel. They delivered two carloads. Winnipeg, Feb. 3.-Mr. Grant Hall, vic^-presldent and genoral injuiagerof the C. P. R. western lines, returned last night from Montreal after a stay ot ton days. He was there on his annual visit regnixling niipropriatious for western lines for the current year. In discussing conditions and appropriations, .Mr. Hall said: "As wo have no very laTge work in contemplation, such as building new lines or additions to buildinjgs, -^le appropriations necessarily ai'e confined to regular maintenance.w.ork and keeping the company's property up to its present high standard of ^ffjciency. While the company!s � faith, .lii Western Canada's future is as strong as it always has been,; there will- be no largo e.vnenditures of capital this year for the reason that during the past eight or ten years the terminal and other facilities have been so generously increased that the demands of traffic are very well met. The linking .up ot the line from Vantage to Assiniboia will be proceeded, with as early as possible and that branch completed. That will give a direct communication between Moose Jaw and the Weyburn-Lethbridge line and materially reduce the mileage between the west and southern Saskatchewan, making it especially adv^tageous in regard to the haulage of coal. Ballasting will be completed into Manyber-ries from the west on that same line which finishes it through from Leth-bridge to the former place. "We are also building an extension to Pier D., at , Vimcouyer, and will build two large new caf' barges for freight service on the'British Columbia coast which will enable t%e company to better accommodate the new industries now established in the vicinity of Vancouver. Our observation is tl^at it would hardly Be judicious to consider extensions or building of hew lines on account of the difitculty of obtaining: steel rails, but the president. Lord j Shaughnessy, has this yeir followed; his usual far-sighted policy, of allow-" ing all necessary appropriations for the proper equipment and maintenance of the railway.", "Have yo.u any announcement to make regarding the movements of Vice-President Bury while In England and Russia?" '"^ "No, Lord Shaughnessy has^already given out all there is to be said on that subject." �^ em : ? ? ? : ? > ? > * HOUSATONIC WAS FULLY WARNED SCOTTS EMULSION RELIEVES SORE, TIGHT CHEATS: Washington, Feb. 4. -- The American steamer Hausatonic was given full v/arning by the German submarine before be-lnK Eunii, and opportunity was given for the safety of the crev,', A dispatch received at the state department 'toilay from American Consul' SteplieiRi at I^lymouth, England, announced ihiB.
