It was not the statement itself, but the inferences that could tie deducted therefrom, that caused a flutter through the ranks of the parliamen- tarians. Sir Richard then demanded to know whether it was true that some- bodies recovered were found to he burned by acid and further, whether it was a faci that some of the survivors are held under arrest. Furthermore Sir Richard inQuired if it were true that- one or more mem- bers of the crew had been found guilty of certain offences, resulting on one occasion in the guns on on1 side of the cruiser being unable to Thomas James McXamara, parlia- mentary imder-secretary for the ad- miralty said in reply to Sir Richard's questions that there would be no fur- ther investigation.

Another map of interest to the pub- ic has just been published by the de- partment of the interior at Ottawa. It deals with the southern portion of the province oC Alberta, showing the part taken up by way of homestead i entry, etc., extending from the United boundary lo township 74. The purpose of the publication is to indicate the progress of settlement, and in order to make clear its various features a color scheme has been adopted. All homestead entries ap- plied for in arc shown in red and those applied for prior to the year 1915 but for which patents have not yet been issued in blue, while all other lands disposed of by the crown j are indicated by brown. Other fea-1 tures of the map nre the forest and J Indian reserves, timber limits and grazing leases while the location of railways, trails and post offices is also shown. The proximity to railroads, which is generally regarded as a desirable fea- ture by settlors, does not appear to have had any more retarding owing to its have the conditions due to the war. Settle- ment has taken place at points at least one hundred nilles from the nearest railroad, while at tho same time the construction of new railways lias undoubtedly done much to stimu- late the taking up of homesteads in districts. Along four .different Hues of railway now under construe- ion or in operation through the area covered by the map, a large number if homesteads have been entered for.
