Strange Deals Told of in Allison's Evidence (CONTINUED FKOM FlIONT 1'AOE) camp on September 24 in which he stated that he had an option on all brass cartridges lo be manufactured in the United States until the end of 1915. Some one asked Mr. Carvell where he got the documents, and the latter replied that he had a whole bag full of documents which he said lie receiv- ed from John R. Hathom, editor of the Providence Journal, the man who had done much to ferret out the Ger- man propaganda in the United States.

Ottawa, May department of interior has issued a set of regula- tions governing the development of po- tassium in a large area of Dominion lauds extending along the Peace, Ath- abasca and Mackenzie rivers.

The regulations permit of e lease of the lands in question not exceeding acres, and the leane is lo be applied tor at Dominion land.il offices. The rental tor the first year at the rate of 28 cents an acre shall accompany the application. Thereaf- ter the rate will be BO cents per acre annually.
