The new scheme is along too sante lines as that-put forward by the council last week, except that' the directors ask that 15000 more be ^raised by debenture to take care ,dfVpre^jBnt  indebtedness to the "Y" bankers!"

Of. the land- held by them as- a quaran-i tine station-at the boundary, It being felt that the holding of so great an area In quarantine lands was detrl-, ; rtmntal to th* development of the' town and'distTict. W. A. Buchanan, In the house of commons, recently' asVed the following questions relative ] to this matter.-and. received the an-j wchs-quoted below: I 1. How much land is set aside for the .quarantine reserve at Coutts, Alberta? ' _ ; ' 2. How much stock was quarantined at'this reserve, during the past year of 1916?". 3. Have representations been made to the government for the opening of this reserve for settlement? ,4.

Thus it will not; be necessary to depend on rental from the city,, and the building-can be kept wholly fdjr'-"Y" purposes. Mayor Hard ie was'not so sure of this. He'was afraid of a recurrence of 1914 conditions, and thought the directors should make their calculations ou,that basis. However, the directors reiterated their belief that the association could, be made to pay its way frorn this time forward, and the following'resolution,' inoved.'by O. T. Lathrop and seconded by J.-'F. Hamilton, was put to' the, meeting and carried; ' "�" , ;> That the city take over the Y.M.C.A. at the amount of* the Secured debts approximately $53,000 under an arrangement whereby the city would lease or sell to the Y.M.C.A. at an annual rental or instalment equal to the annual ^debenture, with 'a provision for cancellation of lease in event of default; an3 a further provision for the property reverting to the "Y" at the end of 30" years; It being understood that the outside Indebtedness of the "Y" be paid before the property is transferred.

Winnipeg, Feb. 19-The Ottawa correspondent'of the Winnipeg Telegram today sends the following dispatch: "Early this year Major General' Turner, commander of the Canadian forces iri England, completed his organization to absorb battalions and drafts being sent forward from Canada, and to arrange for the units in the field having affiliated battalions in training in England that will provide reinforcements when required. The infantry reserves in England have been mobilized into five brigades of 26 battalions. "The battalions at the front and affiliated reserve battalions have been territorialized as far as possible Into | western and eastern--^Ontario bat-i tallons, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, land Alberta, British Columbia, Que-, bee, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia battalions. Of the reserve battalions {five are designated western Ontario, j two eastern Ontario, four Quebec, five ; Manitoba and Saskatchewan, three �British Columbia, two Alberta, one New Brunswick and two Nova Scotia. On this basis Quebec: has an undue proportion to enlistment in that province, but this is probably due to an attempt to give two reserve battalions to* French-Canadians and two also to English-Canadians of that province. "Uniler this system the regiments in the" field are made representative of thd provinces in which they were originally enlisted: Reinforcing battalions go into reserve battalions that are affiliated witU field battalions from the same district as reinforcing battalions seem." 2� > ? ? ? ?
