A THE NEWSPRINT Ottawa, Juno 21.-A sensation developed in the newsprint Investigation before Commissioner PrlngH) today when just before tlio close of the forenoon sitting -\V. X. Tllley. K. C, counsel for the publishers, withdrew from tho case on their behalf after unsuccessfully trying to delve Into the operations of the companies engaged in tho export of paper from Canada. The wiiiniiawnl followed a ruling by Mr. Pringle that under the order in council his investigations were confined to the cost of production, selling price nnd supply of newsprint in Canada and could not embrace tho operations of Canadian companies across tho lino. There was much heated discussion on the point between opposing counsel and tie publishers' representative was successful to the extent of learning the names of the Canadian firms In the Canada Kxport company, a question Mr. Pringle permitted during the oxnmnatoii of J. A. Bothwell, general manager of tho Brampton Pulp and Papor company. There are four companies in the Canadian Export company, viz.. The Laurentide company, Price Brothers, Helgo-Cunadian company and The Brampton company. J. A. McCarthy, president of Price Brothers, Is also president of tho Canadian Export company, with Mr. Bothwell as vice-president and H. Biermans of the Belgo-Canadian and George Chahoou of the Laurentide as directors. Mr. Bothwell denied that It had anything to do with price-fixing in Canada, being he claimed, simply a selling agent for export trade only. Some very interesting developments characterized the session. The manufacturers of newsprint paper were under cross-examination in regard to cost of production and selling prices which they had submitted in response to a circular sent out by Commis-jsioner Pringle. H. A. Stewart, K. C, of Brockville. is counsel for the gov-iernmont; W. N. Tiiiey. K. C, repre-I sents the Daily and Weekly Newspapers and there is quite an array of counsel representing the manufac- tyirers. It developed in the cross-ex-; amination that in many of the state-: ments submitted one or both the two i principal items in the cost of paper, : ground wood and sulphite had been ! entered at arbitrary figures instead � of at the actual cost of production. | The treasurer of one paper manu-! facturing company said he had used | an arbitrary figure instead of the act-i ual cost for ground wood on the instructions of the president of his com-! pany, and he had understood from the j latter that the price used had been agreed upon. Another witness agreed that the use of arbitrary figures instead of actual cost of production had been adopted I by his mill during the latter part of 1P16 in accordance with an understanding among the manufacturers. Mr. Tiiiey endeavored to establish a connection between the change in the method of cost recording at that time and the fact that the appeal of the newspapers to the government was made on October 7, 1916. One witness admitted a change in the method of writing off depreciation in his mill which increased the allowance for this item by about 50 per cent. It was brought out that this change in method had been made for the first time in the preparation of the reply to Commissioner Pringle's questioning. In the case of one company it was shown that the use of actual cost of production of ground wood and sulphite instead of the arbitrary figures which had'"been used by that company meant the difference on its 1916 business between a loss of ?10.45 a ton and a profit of $7.37 a ton. It was brought out that even a profit of $7.37 a ton was .after paying $1.50 a ton to a selling Agency and allowing for depreciation an amount that was $4 a ton higher than the amount fixed by the federal trade commission of the United States. The e-vidence showed that the Abitibi Power and Paper Company, Limited, and Spanish River Pulp and Paper Company, Limited, whose combined output is almost one-third of the total Canadian production of newsprint paper, sell their entire product through George A. Mead & Co., of Dayton, Ohio, of which George H. Mead, president of the Spanish River Pulp and Power Co., Ltd., is practically sole proprietor. CANADIANS HONORED.

The regiment will have Its first public parade on Sunday and will leave In a fortnight for tho front, probably for the Minsk sector. Tho xVssocitited Press correspondent who visited the barracks in Torgyava street found posted at tho gate a little blue-eyed sentry In a soldier's khaki blouse, short breeches, green forage cap'-ordinary woman's black stockings and neat shoes. The sentry was Murya-Skrydloff, daughter of Admiral Skrydloff. former commander of the Baltic fleet and minister of marine. Inside there were four larpo dormitories, the beds without bedding and strewn with heavy soldiers' overcoats. In the court yard 300 girls were at drill, mostly between IS and 25 years of age, of good physique and many of them pretty. They wora their hair short or had their heads entirely shaven. They were drilling under the instruction of a male sergeant of the Volynsky regiment and marched to an exaggerated goose step. Commander Lieut. Buitehkareff explained that most of the recruits were from the higher educational academies or secondary schools with a few peasants, factory girls and servants. Some married women were accepted, but none who had children. The girl commander sr>l: . "Wo apply the rigid system of discipline of the pre-revolutionary army, repecting the new principle of soldier self-government. Having no time to inure the girls gradually to hardships we impose a spartau regime'from the first. They sleep on boards  without bedclothes, thus immediately eliminating tho weak." The smallest breach of discipline, i�:punished by expulsion in disgrace. ~ "The ordinary.'soidrars'^-foodr is furnished by the guards' equipage corps. We rise at 4 a.m. and! drill daily from 7 to 11 and again from 1 to G p.m. "The girls carry the cavalry carbine which is five pounds lighter thau the regular army rifle. On our first parade I requested any girl whose motives were frivolous to step out. Only one did so, but inter many who were unable to stand the privations left us. "We are fully official and are already entered on the list of regiments. Uniforms and supplies are received daily from the ' ministry of war, to which we render account and present reports. Yesterday the commander of the Petrograd military district reviewed us and expressed his satisfaction. I am convinced that we will excel the male fighters." \sked as to the attitude of the male army. Commander Buitehkareff said that only the Volynsky regiment, which led the Petrograd revolution was really favorable. �. The regimental clerk is Madame BaTbara Rukovishikoff, editor of the Woman and Economy, and author of i some admirable short- stories. She said that Mme. Keronsky. Intended to join the regiment not as a soldier, but as a sister of mercy. T John Wallace Killed In Action -Sergt.
