Ottawa, June Frasec, auditor-general, sprung another sensation in the Davidson commis- sion this morning when ho pro- duced a cablegram from the co- lonial secretary, Bonar Law, which stated that the British admiralty -paid per thousand for small arms ammunition sold by the inl- lltla department of Col. J. Wesley Allison for per 1000, and the admiralty paid alt expenses of in- surance, cartage, etc. It had been contended that no commission had been charged on the transaction but that by mistake a charge was made for insurance, etc., which charge withdrawn. Fraser stated that he had writ- ten to Col. Stan ton, secretary to Hie 3loyal Highness, the Governor Gen- eral, on May. 26 last, asking if he could got Information from the ad- miralty as to what price was pafd hy them for ammunition; as to whether It-was f.o.b. Canada, and as to whether nil charges of insurance and cartage paid by the admiralty. Col.

He had a perfect under- standing of what was referred to. "The description was said Sir Charles Davidson. Wi% Hutcheson drew the attention of the auditor-gen- eral to the fact that the balance of the admiralty trust account intact, is 000. He asked if in the opinion at Air.

Bread Lines Lengthening" in Suffering Belgium Hungry Women are Grateful for Scanty Fare Provided by Belgian Relief Fund So long as their heroic husbands and fathers art righting with the Allies, 'Germany will not raise a finger to lave from starvation those Belgian women and children in the territory she has overrun. She permits the Belgian Relief Commission to feed them, but altitude is indicated by the recent torpedoing of two relief ships: Their cargoes were fully insured, of course, as arc all shipments made by the Commission, so no contributions were lost. But much anxiety ii felt lest even the delay in getting food over may cost precious lives. For all Belgium is dangerously of food.' Nearly three millions are penniless as the number of these is growing last as accumulated savings are exhausted. This means continually growing demands on the Belgian Relief Fund.

Robin- son, Its correspondent at British head- quarters in France: "In' the earlier fighting at Hooge, the troops engaged Included units of the Princess Patricias Light Infantry, Rifles, the Royal Canadian regiment and Canadian infantry. "The northern end of.the line was attacked, and it was held by the Prin- cess Patricias. Here and in the Sanc- tuary wood was the scene of fighting of tho most desperate kind. "Occupying the middle of the ground covered by the enemy's con- centrated fire were battalions of Can-, adian mounted rifles. "It was terrible fighting over the whole line. Terrible, hour after hour, and not over the front line itself, but in the region behind, where lay the places known us Maple Copse, Obesr- vatory Ridge and Amagh Wood.--Koch of these names will be written large in history. Other battalions came through barrage later to assist the mounted rifes, and few things, it is said, were ever seen in war that could compare with it.

Tho men who remained had noth- ing fit for use, even if the men had been fit to use them. when they saw the enemy coming toward the trenches to meet them they charged magnificently, but pitifully, to their, deaths, some blind and deaf and staggering no wea- pons but broken rifle butts, hits of entrenching tools, and in some cases only their "It Is of such men the German, com- munication foully says: 'The number of prisoners taken was small because the enemy ran away.'
