"In arriving at ihr surplus of assets over liabilitiea. the report of Prof. Swain as to ilu> reproduction cost new of tlie j)liy.-:icai property based on pre-war jirii'eii. and also his estimate of the deproclution has been adopted and after a cnreful examination we found lln' surplus of assets over liabilities of ilu; company on October 1, l9i7,,on ii (oiiservative basis to bo not less than �2.j,OnO,000 after deducting the full amount of depreciation found by Prof. Swain and making )iuch reduction in the value of the land grants and other assets as deemed reasoiKi'iIc. "It is to he poiiil>il out that a valuation of tho physical property of a railway company by ilic reproduction new method, less depreciation, is not to be regarded as an ascertainment of I tho actual value. 1[ is only a means to that end, bm as it was the best, and in fact the only estimate available it has .been .idopted us a basis for the toreijoiiiK calcijlations. "While tliivr.~iiH�ius.of assets over liabilities ;s an olc?ment for consideration ai3 has already been pointed out, it is not conclusive as to the value of the stock of the company. Its pros-pectivo earning power ' is perhaps more Important than any other element in ascertaining such value 'and In arriving at a conclusion we have given careful consideration to the past history of the company, its earning and expenditures, tho present financial posiiion of the company, tlie location of its lines and their construction, the other roads already existing in competition, the rale of interest on the funded and other debts of the company, the probable future gi'owth of the population and business of tlie country and other factors which seemed to us to have any bearing upon the question. "It is apparent that there was, great room for difference of opinion in a matter involving so many ele-monts of uncertaiiity and speculation, but after taking into consideration all the circumstances which appeared to us to bo entitled to weight in determining so difficult a question we came to the conclusion wo have mentioned."

Following our numerous aerial tTiumphs, enemy aviators are siiowing loss and less inclination to come over our territory. Our reconnaissance and pliotographing machines can normally venturo several jnile.'i behind the German front at present without encountering other opposition than anti-aircraft shells. Our- bombing squadrons are displaying a rapidly monnting curve of activity, flying al all hours, while the Germans fly only by night. During the fine weather, which has now broken up, our airmen carriod out many splendid exploit.s, unliBBltatingly attacking hostile foi-^ mationa of greatly superior fltrength; For example, recently two of ours attacked seven German machines. In-the former case tho Germans were beaten off, leaving two of their machines wrecke'd. A- Different Attitude Now. London, May sn.-(Reutora Ottawa Agency.)-The Daily Express prints extracts from German newspapers dating from .fune, 1315, to March, 1917, applauding air raids on Britain and compares them with the present attitude of the German press in appealing to their government to enter negotiations with tho allies to stop air raids on German towns. The Dally Express says that the policy which was so "glorious and splendid,' 'and filled "every German heart with holy joy", when Zeppelins and Golhas were bombing England, has suddenly' become sensoIeBs slaughter of women and children", when Germans are imperilled.
