OVR1L Aids the Digestion of Food 7-m Ottawa, Feb. 21.-The stand taken j by the Ontario,hydro-electric eoniniis-j sion was laid brl'orn the government tuday by a large delegation represent- ] ing (lie ti.s.sociation and various nmn- \ icipnlities and organizations. Representations made by the delegation j were three-fold. They asked for the j nationalization of the Grand Trunk' railway along the lines laid down in the Drnyton-Aeworth report; eleetri-' fication of radial lines and the intro-' duction of legislation next session j which will give to municipalities full j control of their own streets. X; Full consideration was" promised by | Sir Kobert. Borden. 1 Sir Adam Bock declared that the i only way to handle the railway j lion was by consolidation and coordin- ' ation of the lines. The Grand Trunk I Pacific in the west was a failure. The Canadian Northern in the east was a failure.

Bowman & Bevercombe SOLDIERS' VOTE TO II Winnipeg. Feb. HI.-The. Free Press carries the following from an Ottawa correspondent: "With the soldiers' vote, polled in Canada and the United States counted in throe provinces there is so far only one change effected in the standing; of j the parties on December 17. "Mr. Speaker Rhodes who was t>2 ! down on the latter date, now has a ! majority of H-> over his opponent, illnnce Logan, in Cumberland, j "Tiie provinces in which the votes | so far have been counted are Ontario, ! Quebec and Nova Scotia. The effect |of the vote in the two former provinces I has been comparatively insignificant, I only one seat in Ontario having been j really endangered. In Quebec it is doubtful whether even the overseas vote will cause any difference. In Nova Scotia, however, the soldiers' vote on this side haz cut down several Lauvier majorities to a poijat where the overseas soldier vote will almost assuredly wipe them out. "From present indications there will be seven changes, including the ele* t.ion of Mr. Speaker Rhodes. Laurier ites who aro almost certain tcj' be de feated include Oliver in West Edmonton; Aikin in South Kssex; R. H. Mae-kay in Pictoti; Marte.ll in Hams; Carroll in,South Cape Breton and probably [,Kyte in the same constituency, though" the latter still has a fair lead over his opponents. The soldier vote averaged about Sa per cent for the government. "In TTiiva Scoria, however, there was a greater proportion fo| the opposition than in the other provinces. In North Cape Breton, for instance, D.VJ. McKenzie. ihe Laurier candidate, secured,?" soldier votes to Mccormick's 108." Edmonton,"Feb. 21.-The dairymen's convention in session in thiS city will this afternoon pass upon the question of abolition of the manufacture and sale of oleoinajgarine immediately at the close of the war; the standardizing through Ihe province of all cheese and the fixing of a uniform price at all points for the same grades of cream. There is a proposal atso that only pi'i'sotis actually engaged in the mri.iiufaci.ure of butter be allowed to purchase cream. The convention will go on record as opposing any measure i'avcring tlio ronovating of dairy butter. Rev. Keith, Edmonton, President-Denounce Pea Pool (Jii me Calgary, Feb. Ul.

"Tin' Countess Charming,'' at Starland for the last times In-night.. s According to Webster's, ''that which gradually and silently eats, consumes and wastes anything" Is a moth and lite same authority in illustration of this definition declares "idle persons are a moth lo the community"; whence the title "The Moth" the new Kely.niek picture starring Norma Tal-madge which comes to Starland Friday and Saturday.
