BETTER WAIT UNTIL VERDICT IS REACHED Conservative papers which have been so busy lately Quoting an extract from the "Winnipeg Free' Press to the effect tnat the Meredith-Duff commis- sion had so far failed to bring out anything that would have justified Premier Borden in granting an inquiry when importuned earlier in the sea- sion to do so, may take what-satisfac- tion they can get out of the evidence of B. F. Yoakum before the commis- sion. According to Yoakum, Allison, whom Sam Hughes vouches for as the soul of honor, received for swinging a. big contract away from Canadian manufacturers over to the American concerns, whose "credit" was so good that they did not need to pay a cent into the treasury from which millions in profits are being paid out.

The event is momen- tous in any community, and even more so than usual in tills province where an enormous expansion with its atten- dant influx of new settlers awaits us.

Half- hearted measures of enforcement w.ll London, May latest peace overtures said to be of German origin, while not as Insolvent and impossible as previous statements on the, same subject, certainly do not yet offer a basis for said Lord Robert' Cecil, minister of war trade, In discussing with the 'Associated Press the latest reputed German peace terms. Lord Robert continued: "We have never either officially or unofficially, any direct peace suggestions from Germany and the .only Indirect overtures we are aware of appear in the spcsches or Chancellor von Eethmann Hollweg and the recent German note to Am- erica.

A____ Guarantee To be more than a mere "scrap of juaran- tee must be backed by able and willing to make it good. The General's guarantee is not only absolute; it is backed by a, business operating the roofing makingohe-third. of al.l the roll roof- ing made in America. That's the guarantee behind Roofing Th? guarantee is for .5, 10 or 15 years, according to ply (1, 2 or There is no evasion about it no s or stitute a high-sounding something "just as good." Thereis no substitute for a real guarantee. You get an absolute guaran- tee on because the General knows that no better roofing can be made. Its raw materials and method of manufacture certified by the General's board pf graduate chemists, arid he knows he's taking no chance in guaranteeing them to you. That's what "CERTAIN- TEED" oriifid and fiarmluJ. 'Experience: has proven that the guarantee is conservative, and that CER- TAIK-TEEP will outlast the period of guarantee. The roofing felt, as it comes bone dry from the rollers, is given a thorough saturation of a special blend-of soft asphalts, the formula of thp General's board of expert chemists. It is then given a harder coating of another blend of asphalts. This keeps the inner saturation soft, and prevents the dry- process, so destructive to ordinary roofing; Hooting is 'impervious to tht elements only so long as. the asphalt saturation'lasts. CERTAIN-TEED retains its soft satura- tion, and is in good condition for years after the hardeiydrier kinds have become useless. CERTAIN-TEED is taade in rolls; also in slate-covered shingles. There is a type of for every kind of building, with fiat dr.pitched roofs, from the largest sky-scriper to the. small- est residence CERTAIN-TEED is sold by responsible dealers the world, at reasonable prices.
