Transportation supplies all the arteries of mobilization. Unless' it be under a single and unified direction, the whole process of the nation's action is embarrassed. \ "ft has become unmistakably plain that only under goVernment administration can the entire equipment of the session and assumed control of thelB0V-eral systems of transportations be railway lines of, tho country and the]\ru]]y an(j unreservedly thrown into a systems.of water transportation under i common service without injurious dls-their control.

ACT, 1917 v , Department cf The Secretary of State- of Canada XHB War Charities Act. 1917, defines � '"war charities" as follows: any fund, institution or association, other than a church or the Salvation Army, whether established .before or after the commencement o� this Act, having for its objects or among its objects the re-ltef of '-6iif Coring or distress, or-the supplying of needs or comforts to "sufferers from the war, or to soldiers, re-tourned soldiers or their families or dependents,- or any other charitable purpbso connected with the presentfTerest and safeguarding iOuropean war- Any question whoth-/ er a charity is a war charity shall Le finally determined by the Minster. The Act also provides: (1) At shall fiot bo lawful to make any appeal to the public for donations or subscriptions in money or in kind* Eor any war charity as hereinbefore defined, or to or attempt \o raise money for :anysuch war charity by promoting any bazaar, sale, entertainment or,exhibition, or by any similar nieansT unless- (a) tho war charity is oithnr ex- empted from registration or is registered under this Act; and, (b) the .approval in writing of thoffcnay rest'assured that the interest and ties. Only under .government administration can absolutely unrestricted and unembarrassed common Use be made of all tracks, termlnkls, terminal facilities and equipment of every kind. On-launder that authority can new terminals be constructed, -and developed without regard to tbie requirements of limitations of particular,, roads. But under government administration all these things will ba! (possible-not Instantly, but as fast as practical difficultly*; which, cannot be merely conjured away, give way before the new management. Little Disturbance "The common administration will be carried out, with as-little disturbance of the present operating o?'ganizationn ami personnel 6f the railways as possible: Notjiing^wlll be afcered or disturbed ..which ft Is. not necessary to disturb. We are((serying the public in- the public safety, but we are also regardful of the interest of those by whom the great properties are owned and glad to avail ourselves of the experience and trained ability of those'who have been managing them. It-is necessary that the transportation of troops and of war materials, of food and of fuel and of everything that is necessary for the full mobilization of the energies ahti resources of the country, should bp first considered, but it Is clearly in the public interest also that tho ordinary activities^ and the normal industrial and commercial life of the country should be interfered with and dislocated as,little as possible, and the public executive committee, or other / governing body of the war charity has been obtained, either directly or through \ some person duly authorized to give such approval onvbe-hajf of such governing body; and if any person contravenes any of the provisions of this section he shall he guilty of an offence against . this Act.  (2) Tftls section shall not app^y to any collection at Divine Service in a place of public worship. The Act was assented to oh the 20th of September, 11)17, and the above sec-tipn.6Q.j|ar a^fU relates to rejglsfratlcn, is applicable'to "War Chanties on the 20th" ot .December/ 1917.' .After that ' date,.coHecti6ns. made otherwise than on behalf of a'registered War Charity by subscriptions, donations, bazaars, sales, entertainments, exhibitions, or '.'sim'I^r, means of collecting money are , .\illogal. ; v- , : . j- Regulations and'information respebt-: 5\itig'( Registration may be obtained from thefeundersigned. x THOMAS 'UVLVEY, lJ Undersecretary *of State. Ottawa, Decembers, 1917. ' - ' s Ad M ( Full Line of convenience of the private shipper will be as carefully served and safeguarded as it is possible to serve and safeguard in tho present extraordinary circumstances. Must Be Given Guarantee "While the present authority of the executive suffices for all jjurposes ot administration and while, of course, all private interests must for the present give way to the public necessity, it is, 1 am sure you will agree with me, right and necessary that the owners and creditors of^tho railways,,the holders of their stocks and bonds, should receive from the government an unqualified guarantee, that their properties 'will be maintained throughout\J;he period of federal control in as good repair and as complete equipment as at present, and that the several roads will receive under federal management such compensation as is equitable and just alike to their owners and to ^tl'ie general public,, ywoiild suggest the available he^t railway operating income of the three years ending June 30, 1917. I earnestly recommend that these guarantees be given by appropriate legislation arid given as promptly as cir- cumstancea permit, I n^ed not p6int out the' essential, justice of such 'guarantees arid tlieir great influence and significance as elements in the present ^In&ircial and industrial situation of the country. Indeed, one of the strong arguments for assuming control of the railroads at this time is the financial argument. It lp necessary that the values of railway securities should bo justly and' fairly protected and that the large financial operations every year necessary in connection with the maintenance and operations and developments of the roads, should, during the period of the war, be wisely re-] lated to the financial operations of the government. Onr first duty la", of course, to conserve the common interest and tho common safety and. to make certain that nothing stands in the way ot the successful prosecution of the great war for liberty and justice, but It is an obligation of public conscience and of ^public honor that the private Interests we disturb should be kept safe from unjust inquiry, and it is tot the utmost consequence to tho government itself that all great financial operations, should be* stabilized anrl co-ordinated with the financial operations of the government. No borrowing should run athwart the borrowings of the federal treasury, and no fundamental Industrial values' shoula [anywhere "be unnecessarily impaired. In the hands of many thousands of small investors in the country, as well as in national banks, in insurance companies, iu savings banks, in trust companies, in financial agencies of every kind, railway securities, the sum total of which runs up to some ten or eleven thousand* millions, constituto a vital part of the structure of credit, and the unquestioned solidity of that structure must be maintained. "The secretary of war and I easily agreed that, in view of the many complex interests which must be safeguarded and harmonized, as well as because of his exceptional experience and ability in this new field of governmental action, the Hon. William G. Mc-Adoo was the right man to assume direct administrative control of this new executive task. "At,our request, he consented'to assume the authority and duties of ,or-ganizer and director general of 'the new railway administration. He has assumed these duties and his work is, in active progress. "It is probably too much to expect that even under the unified railway administration which will now be possible sufficient economies can be ef-tected in the operations of the railways to make it possible to add to Lhelr equipment and extend their oper--j ative facilities as the present extraordinary demands upon their use will render desirable,without resorting to the national treasury for the funds. If ii; is not possible, it will, 'of course, b6 necessary to resort to the congress for grants of money for'that purpose. The secretary of the treasury, will advise with your committees with regard to this very practical aspect of the matter. For the present I suggest only" the guarantees 1 have indicated and such appropriations as are neceSsary at the outset of this task. I take the liberty of expressing the hope that the congress may grant these promptly and ungrudgingly. We ate dealing \Vith great matters and will, 1 ahi sure, deal with them greatly."

Bergeron, M.L.A., after alluding to the noble part .played in the war by the en of M. Veuillot, said: "ttfe In French Canada have also made sacrifices. We are facing the Boche-here. ,He^ dpes not fight v/ith the sword, that is too noble a weapon, but he'attempts, by passing despoiling laws, to rob us of our language. We have felt it our duty to combat him with all our forces. Insidious attempts have been made to awaken our pympatfiy for France and thereby divert: us from 6Ur Oinain duty. God icntiws it wjll be bard to resist this appeal to our hearts, but wo did resist it because it was our duty to do so. Calgary, Jan. 4.-Draftees ordered to report today turned up in ^ood time, while those who came in yesterday have already commenced squad drill. The latter are satisfactorily settling down to their military leave and have put their quarters into ship-shape. Although the number is not officially stated, it is understood that quite a few failed to put in an appearance yes-treday and the names of these men have been reported to' registrar Carson and the D. O. C. No time will be lost In dealing with these men. / One thing is certain and that is that Lieut.-Col. Moore will have about one of the most cosmopolitan units under his command that lias evor been enlisted. If ever a battalion consisted! of "all sorts and condition of meiT ' it will certainly be the case in connection with the* first depot battalion. Side by side as the^men were standing In line this morning weija men who in civilian life^ held ^excellent commercial and professional positions. These rubbed shoulders with the mechanic, the laborer and men of every walk In life. So far it is only Calgary men | that have been called up. Those from i outside^ points have been ordered to report early next weelg. AT THE EMPRESS Robert McKim who appears In the new Triangle play.

McKim first came to the attention of Triangle patrons through hiH clever work as "Doc" Hardy in "The Disciple" with William S. Hart, and has since appeared in similar roles in. scrrps of Triangle successes. In "Alast-j er of His Home" McKjm is seen in the role of Desmond's rival for the hand of the girl, played by Alma Reuben.
