AND TEN PER CENT. .The Canada Car Foundry Co. paid Its man who personally went to Pet- TOgrad and negotiated on Its behalf a Russian, shell order, a commission amounting to "a fraction of one per cent." For negotiating a contract for fuses on behalf of the Canadian shell committee for the British government 3n New York, Messrs. Allison, Cad- flassick, Yoakum, et al. shared the commission amounting to ten per cent of the'purchase price, and Col. J. Wesley Allison, who shared his share with half a dozen others, con- sidered that ten per cent, was a very email commission. Col. Mackie, formerly a rancher at Milk River and- well known in Leth- bridge, who negotiated the Russian contract, went to Petrograd at the Instance of the Canada Car Foundry Co., and no doubt put himself to a great deal of trouble and expense to tlfing it. Col. All j eon, who negotiated the fuse contract, went down to New Yrirk at the instance of Gen. Hughes, the minister of militia, and all he did to introduce several promoters to the shell comnUttae- Col. Mackie got fraction of one per cent, for his trouble; Col. Allison and his friends got ten per cent. ,The first man seem- ed to be -the toll he took; the second thought it too small. Col. Allison was sent down tb "bust prices." Just how far he was instru- mental in doing this was demonstrat- ed before the Meredith-Duff commis- sion, when a draft contract dated April Allison got the ammunition from the Canadian Department of Militia at per thousand rounds and the Bri- tish government, after meeting cart- age and insurance charges, paid him S25. Canada's minister of militia sane- i jtioned the deal, and Allison got the dollars difference on each thous-i and rounds. With the Russian steam roller working on the east and the Italians keeping a few hundred thousands busy on the south, it's a pretty safe guess that three weeks more will see the dual monarchy in a position where it will be ready to give up the ghost j and let Germany fight it oui alone. As j for the Turk, he is keeping pretty much in the background these days. When Justice Duff, in Inquiry! at Ottawa, says anything friendly to I Gen. Hughes he is referred to hy the j Conservative press as the "Liberal j member of the and when he reflects disparingly on Col.j Carnegie or Col. Allison It is inslnuat-1 ed that It is the view of the "Liberal member of the commission." Justice Duff Is one of the ablest members of the Supreme Court of Canada. He was placed on the commission by the Bor- den government'not because he was a Liberal, but on account of his repu- tation as a fair and upright judge. Whatever views Justice Duff hag ex- pressed during the commission can he accepted as the views of an eminent and impartial jurist and not the views of a Liberal.

She permits the Belgian Relief Commission to feed them, but net heartless attitude is indicated by the recent torpedoing of two relief ships. Their cargoes were fully insured, ef course, as are all shipments made by the Commission, so DO contributions were lost. But much anxiety is 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 fait as accumulated savings are exhausted. This means continually growing demands on the Belgian Relief Fund. To meet them more Canadians must contribute, and those who have been giving must be even more liberal.
