Noting that more and'more merchant shipping was coming under the direct requisition of the government and that the shipping controller was putting down a large number of new ships, 'Mr. Bouar Law said he did not minimize the submarine danger, .but that some'of the best brains In the country at large and among naval men;,were concentrated upon the problem. Altogether, he declared, he was not without hope, whatever the ravages of submarines might be, that something,might bo'done to replace the lost tonnage by new ships.

They have furnished about two tJiirds Of the crews to man the submarines on the Pacific coast, have contributed many men to the Rain bow and of the Shearwater, on %vhich toat Lieut Edwardes is an officer, and bave sent a number of men to the Imperial navy, in which R. N, C. V. R. men. deem it a great honor to serve. The men of the Reserve arc strongly of the opinion, he said, that Canada -should give aid to the Imperial navy by means of men trained and ready for action rather than by money donations, and while there are differ-Wcea of opinion about this matter, the lieutenant volunteered the suggestion that the time would comr when, the men of the Reserve would form the nucleus of a larger Canadian navy as a part of the Imperial Baval forces. \ .In JUs address he praised and .thanked the boys of Lethbridge whc hfLve come forward ID offer their services to the navy and declared tha' they-were setting an example many of the young men rfif the city should be JD&de to follow. - -Xiami'Bdwrdes -was;.Introduced by W.vDowner, local naval recruit Ing offlclr ,who; stated ',thar filght men h^^*hee9;sent^" to the Atlantic, live to. the', jPiaciHo/  wI�iIe.;Mne bpyf have offered their services for Pacific cdast.i duty. and..ao8 ieady, tq..^p an; stated that interest in naval recruit Ing was running high and many inquiries were being received from Southern Alberta and Montana points Dr. Conybeare, at the close of Lieut.

On Thursday last-a Chinook arrived but was soon outdone by a keen north-wind. Then for two, days we wi'tnessed a battle of the elements. . One moment.a chinook and the next a chill east .wind. For instance on Friday morning a gentle west wind was blowing and the thermometer registering away ,up, when suddenly at nearly sine o'clock the wind veered to the northeast and the thermometer registered a drop of one degree a minute for 27 minutes, at 10.30 it was 16 below. In the afternoon, however, the ehlnook once again came to the fore and since then the very best of spring sunshine and lovely .weather has been enjoyed. Wni.

They say that if the British, notwithstanding the German warning, expose their wounded to dangers in the channel zone they will do so' manifestly witli the aim of saddling Germany with responsibility for these victims. In fact, there is no necessity of transporting the wounded to England, since they can be cared for as well in France.
