Jan. 7.-The year 1917 having passed into history, figures regard-i ing the business of that year are- avail-) able to which the record can he compared with that of the preceding year. The collections by the customs department here indicates a decrease of $1S,07S.75 from the collections for l'.Uti. The figures are: Collections for .1916, IS0.G34.96, and for the, year just closed the collections wero $62.-556.21. The decrease was not confined to any particular line of Imports, though those of mine supplies perhaps were the (largest, proportionally. The decrease in customs was more than off-set. however, by an increase of 825,580.33 in inland revenue collections. The collections in this department were 379.S05.73. for 1017. and for 1910 they were but $54,225.40. In exports, nearly every article which goes across the international line shows a decrease from tho figures for 1916. In 1916 there were cleared through the U.S. consulate here, 5S5.1S7 tons of coal, and the figures for 1917 stand at 341.51S, a decrease of 243,li6'9 tons and a shrinkage in value of $76,977. Coke shows a corresponding decrease, the amount exported in 1916 being 42,273, which fell last year to 13,116 tons, and the value sank to the extent of $9i;.f>75. The strike of last summer and the April explosion were chief factors in these reductions, and the decrease shown in the export of metals has for one cause, this shortage in production of coal and coke. ; The expert of copper leads the list of exports from the metaliferous field. , .... , ... as shown through the returns in the!nia� ln h,s human endeavor for right E To Spend Nearly Two Million For Addition to Niagara Plant The subjective certainty of salvation might well have stood as the subject of Rev. Mr. Horsman's address last night in the Baptist church when in a vigorous and strictly Biblical sermon he dealt with the two systems of salvation commonly recognized by men as the medium through which it was attained. The question of salvation was not a matter that some rejected so much, the fatal thing was the moral and spiritual confusion into which men were thrown by a self-styled ecclesiastic monopoly and to which men, often, too readily assented. A certftudo of salvation the speaker argued wan possible, but only experienced by a personal independent acknowledgement of Jesus Christ and Us accompanying faith in the revealed word of God concerning it. which was the one and only reliable text book on the subject in which tho writers best resources seem to have come exhausted in showing how absolutely one may be assured of the complete separation from the sin which ever Toronto, Jan. 10.-Sir Adam Heck's plan to spend $1,S00,0()0 on mi Important addition to the plant of tho Ontario Power company, to provide 50.001) additional horsepower before the end of 1918; 15,000 to 20,000 horsepower of which would be available for uso by next August, was approved at the. annual meeting of the shareholders of (ho Ontario Power company and the Ontario Transmission company yesterday. The shareholders passed a resolution not only approving of Sir Adam's extension scheme, but authorizing the directors to go ahead with all possible speed, including the installation of a huge pipe line, considerable new plants and construction of new buildings. Tho cost of theso additions is estimated at $1,800,000. The contract for the manufacture and Installation of the pipe lino was awarded to the Pacific Coast Pipe company of Vancouver. The annual election of directors resulted in the re-election of last year's board. OF Ottawa. Jan. 0.-Renter's Ottawa Agency gives additional paragraphs of interest from Field Marshal Haig's report as follows; Speaking of the unprecedented magnitude of the subterranean warfare at Messines, General Ualg mentions that it was known that the enemy were driving a gallery which would ultimately cut into a gallery leading to hampers the thoughtful and earnest j 0,r mines um,M. ,,, eo But [)y K. D. Johnson was chosen chairman ef the Lethbridge public school board 'for the year 1918 at the organization meeting of the board held Wednesday afternoon in Central school. John Scott is the retiring chairman. Speeches of felicitation were made ail round on the new chairman taking his seat at the head of the table. Messrs. Wallace and Johnson are the new members of the board, having been returned to that body in the municipal elections. Standing committees wero named as follows: Finance-Geo. B. Mackay and R. P. Wallace. School Management-R. P. Wallace and the whole board. Sites and Buildings-John Scott and R. R. Davidson. Supplies-R. R. Davidson and Geo B. Mackay. It is rather early as yet to tell how the board came out financially last year though some of the members feared there would be a deficit of, about $3,000. The estimates wer*> 1 $97,000 and slightly over $100,000 were-, spent. j Big Attendance ! Lethhridge schools are filling up. I The beginners classes for the new term will be started this year on February j 1st instead of March 1st in order to ' make for more regular promotion, and on that date two new rooms will be opened and two new teachers will join the staff. One of the new rooms j will be in Fleetwood making that' school a complete eight-roomed school, while one will be in Galbraith, making six rooms open in that school. The new teachers will be Miss Francis Dunsworth and Miss Lillie Reid. All insurance on school buildings is put on schedule beginning with this year. The board will also enquire into the values of school buildings, which have appreciated owing to the increase in the prices of materials, to se� whether enough insurance is being carried. Teacher*' Salaries The matter of teachers' salaries was also decided. The public school teachers were all put on the regular schedule while some adjustments were made to the salaries of high school teachers from whom letters were received asking for salary adjustment on a higher basis. The board approved of providing a short course for Flying Corps recruits who are somewhat deficient in education. This was in answer to a request from Lieut. McXamara of Winnipeg, through Sheriff Young, chairman of the recruiting committee in Lethbridge.

"Xo army of similar size in the history of the world has ever been raised, equipped or trained so quickly. No such provision has ever been made for the comfort, health and general well being of an army. "By the co-operation of all interests and all people in the country, the nation is now organized and set to its task with unanimity of spirit and confidence in its powers. More has been done than anybody dared to believe possible. That there have been here and there errors in judgment and dc lays goes without saying, but I shou!; be wanting in frankness were I to omi: in my own estimate of the real unse": fishness and intelligence with whici my 'associates, military and civilia:. have applied themselves to the unde; taking and the results demonstrate t:: success of their efforts." The secretary thi i gave the cor: mitiee an outline of the work of ti. department and its various bureaus. "Tho total number already in the military sen-ice," he said, "is one and a half times as large as any force ever mobilized by this nation." "On the first day of April, ifllT, the regular army," he continued, "comprised 5,791 officers and 121,797 enlisted men; the national guard in federal service approximated 3,73.'! officers and 76,713 enlisted men; and the reserve 4,000 enlisted men. There were also at that time approximately 2,573 officers in the reserve, but as these were on inactive duty they ci:nnot properly be considered in estimating the strength of the army of the l.'nitcd States at. that time. On the .'list day of December, 1917, the regular arinv consisted of 10,250 officers and 175.000 enlisted men; the National Guard of 36031 officers and 400,000 enlisted men; National Army of 480,000 men, and the reserve of 84,575 officers and 72,750 enlisted men. In other words, in nine juunthB the increase has been from '.l,!">24 officers to 110,856 officers and from 202,610 to 1,428,050 men. "The aviation section of the signal corps on the first day of April, 1917, consisted of 65 officers and 1,120 men; on the first day of January, 191S, it consisted of 3,900 officers and 82,120 men. "For the fiscal year 1915 congress appropriated for the war department $158,000,000; for the fiscal year 1016, $203,000,000; for the fiscal year 1917, $403,..0,000; for the fiscal year 1918, $7,527,338,716. In other words, taking 1915 as a normal year, the appropriations for 1918 are nearly fifty times as great." ! port. The export of copper for the year 1916 totalled 5,313.012 pounds, and for the year just closed the figures were, 529.S62 pounds, a drop ot 4,783.-150 pounds and the shrinkage in value was, $1,311,197. Gold' also fell off in export: the amount for 191b'. being 20.396 ounces, and for 1917. it was only 4.909, showing a decrease in value of $3tiS,07S. Silver fell from 1,031,639 ounces in 1916 to S7S.10P last year. The decrease in value being $131,245. Lead, also shows a decrease in tonnage, but has a slight increase in value caused by higher prices prevailing. The total of tons exported in 1916 was 5.S50, as against 4,382 in 1917. Increase in value $79,096. There were 5.476 ton? of zinc exported in 191(5, and 5,183 tons in 1917. the loss in value being $2.=,6,Hl7. Last year there were 311 tons of slag, antimonial, exported at a total valuation of $81,593. This product does not appear in the returns for 1916. Lumber Industry The lumber industry, while showing | a slight decrease in amount exported, I shows an increase in value, owing to advanced prices. Of manufactured lumber there was exported in li>16, 4.915.027 feet, and in 1917 the total was 4,085,915 feet, the value of which was $300,"ifi7, as against a value of $85,111 for the previous year. The export of cedar telegraph and telephone poles is on the increase i as shown by these export figures. ; The value of poles exported last year 1 was SH5.289, and for the previous year It was $73,505. j The export of cedar posts and piling i.greatly decreased during the last year '; and reached only $30,655 as against a : value of $99,992 in 1916 '.with God. The reality howover in Jesus, surpassing as it does all figure and reasoning is the final word and the firsthand right and privilege of all men that sin is cancelled by God to the believer to be remembered against him no more for ever. Subject tonight "Repentance Gateway to Peace River ful listening it was judged that if our offensive begtjn on the date arranged the enemy's gallery would just fail to reach us. This proved correct. General Haig emphasizes that owing to the necessity of taking over additional lines from the French we were i very definitely handicapped in the j battle area.

The dispatch shows that the British are increasing their use of gas wh'cli nightly is discharged along the entire front line. General Haig also pays tribute to the navy in the following terms: "The debt the army owes the navy irrows ever greater and is deenly realized by the British army in France.
