He saUi that thoro is a great danger If this dops not take place, as cverytUlnR is in cUaoa. In the consni's oi'liiion, a .Tapancue or HlUed army of lOii.ooo could restore law and order as far west as Irkutsk, but should have considcmblo re-eorves, in view of tlie possibility of a German army cooperatlnR with the Bolshevik. The consul said that It le quite true that the Bolshevik have armed Ger-inan and Austrian prisoners. General Semenotf captured fifty Austrians in a recent battle and said. Jokingly, '*It the Americans are stlU skeptical nbout these prisoners I am willing to eond the fifty to be exhibited In Xew York.' > ? > ? ? > > ? > : :?>>?? BANK CLEARINGS. .>---- ? ?

May 30.-In the opinion of Sir Joseph KInvelle, head of tho Imperial Munitions lloarii, more of aon-structive commendation and less knockiuK of the country's wnr efforts v,-ould be a destrablo development. What Sir Joseph was rererrlng to particularly was the British Colutu-hia strike and charRca that lack of leadership by the board is tho under-lyluK cause. 'Teople," he said, "overlook the tact that a great body of men-not a few- are giving their time absolutely without remuneration to the directions of these industries, and having often as their reward all sorts of unfounded criticism. "Whether I (urn east or west I nin filled with pride over our achievements," said Sir Joseph. "Take shipbuilding for instance. There is under construction in Canada one quarter of tho total merchant tonnage produced in the United Kingdom last year, and olgh6" per cent of it will be completed this year. In one shipyard In British Columbia, ten ships of S.SOO tons each would have been turned out but for the recent fire and as it Is, seven of them will he delivered. Had It not been for the fire one yard would nave turned out au eighteenth of the total tounage production of Great Britain last year. 'Tlip two limiting factors are that only so much money has been available for the work, while no plates or beams are being rolled in Canada. In British Columbia wo are spending $51,000,000." Speaking generally of tho board's work, Sir Joseph quoted the report of the war cabinet of England, that fifteen per cent, of the total expenditure of the ministry of munitions in the last six months of 1917 was made in Onnada and 55 per cent, of all the IS pounder shrapnel used by the British forces on all fronts was made here. There was a relative production of other sizes of shells. The board has explained itself $950,000,000 while the aggregate of orders placed is 175,000,006. "Instead of criticism," he said, "there should be commendation for this marvellous showing." TMt CANAOIAN SALT CO. LIMITf O OF HUN LOSSES New York. May 31.-On April 27 the German general staff was not in- a position to give detailed Information regarding the Qerman losses in the offensive operations begun on March 21, The announcement was made in the Reichstag by General Von Wela-berg, according, to the Berlin Vor-waorts, a copy of which has been received here. The number of men taken prisoner and mlssiug in the German army up to March 31, General Von Welsberg said, was CG4,104. Most of these were prisoners, therf~belng 236,000 prieon-ers In France, 119,000 in Kugland and 157,000 In Russia and Roumanla. The remainder, about 152,000 should be considered as dead. AT 9.30 NOW NEGLECJS PRICE OF COAL IS Charges Are So Great That It is Impossible to Lessen the Price in Manitoba Dispatches from Winnipeg yester-d�y tndlcnted that tho Boani of Control of that city was making an Inquiry Into tho coat of coal to learn it tho Alberta operators wei-e not receiving too great If price ,^for their product, it is stated that the best Lethbrldgo and Edmonton coal was selling at Winnipeg at from $10 to 112 per ton, wl\lch Is the price usually paid there for Pennsylvania anthracite and Wlnnipeggers are complaining that Ihoy are being asltoil too much. However local operators state that they are selling at a perfectly reasonable price. Tho price is fS per ton for lump coal, t.o.b, cars hero, Tho freight to Winnipeg Is now $1.2fB per ton, bringing the coal delivered to the dealer nt $9.25. Tho fuel controller allows the dealer -50 cents profit for handling, bringing it to ?9.75. On top of that figure must bo considered (ho cost of storage, tho coat of doUvory Into tho WInnlpegger's basement, tho shrinkage and tho Interest on the money Invested, so (hat local operators think the Winnipeg p'eople are paying about the right figure. As to tho price charged for lump coal nt the miiies .hero, the oporators state that |5 a ton Is not out of tho way, and as tho government has tho right to fix tho price, the Winnipeg people have nothing to complain nbout on that Score. Tho operators have greatly Increased tho" wages of tho minor's since the war starto pulsory rationing system. A cablegram to the food admlnlsr tnatlon from tho British ministry oC food announces that this has been made possible "thanks to tho aplon-did response from America." Supplies ot butter and cheese stIK aro short in Bngland, hut imports from the United States are expected to relieve that sltuatlorf also. No re-ftorvo of any food Is In sight, however. In spite ot tho decreased consumption, which has accompUatiod strict enforcement of rationing.

Ask your Qrocer. Edmonton, May 30.-The consideration of the missionary campaign for 1918-19 occupied the time of the Alberta Methodist conference this evening. An address was made by Hev. J. H. Arnup, In behalf of the missionary society. Tae conference, missionary committee reported that there had been raised in the varloua districts for missions In 1917-18, �30,1�?, which exceeds the objective by 1196. The amount raised the previous year was �21,263. In the course ot the discussion it was alleged by several speakers, that In some places the rural districts were being neglected, from a church standpoint, and that children were growing up in ignorance- of the Bible and religion. Rev. W. A. Lewis, ot j Macleod, and Rev. M. It. Wright, of Wetasklwin, took a leading part in-the discussion. A vigorous rejolner was made by Rev. T. Powell, for the stationing committee, who pointed out that conditions were abnormal, inasmuch aa more than 60 preachers had gone overseas and It was impossible to supply all the fields, and by Rev. A. Earner, of Calgary, superintendent of Indian missions, who denied that the sijirltual work had been subordinated to the financial considerations, and declared that the work that had actually been accomplished in the rural fields was a subject for congratulation and far outweighed Instances where there had been lack of preaching and teaching. .
