Pierce at the lasl silling of Ihe supreme court wa; found guilty by the jury on the charge of having received a bribe from tlie Saskatchewan Licensed Vic- tuallers association for his influence having tlie temperance legislation abolish tbe bar withdrawn from the bouse in 1913. Sentence was pass- ed by Chief Justice Sir Frederick Haultaiu, who presided nt tile trial. Before passing sentence, tbe chief juslico asked the prisoner if he had anything to say why sentence should not be passed on him. "Nothing, your lordship, except that 1 am innocent, replied Pierce. W. il. McEwen then addressed Ibe court on behalf of thc prisoner, point- ing out that the jury in bringing" in their verdict bad also brought in a recommendation to mercy. Uefore passing sentence Sir Freder- ick addressed a few words io Mr. Pierce poinling out lo him Hie seri- ousness of Iho offence willi which he had been found guilty."

Duty to Save Waste Paper Owing to the present- war con- ditions the demand for old paper has increased to such an alarm- ing extent that all housekeepers wiM'be performing a public and national duty by co-operating most heartily in the I.O.D.E. paper col- lection on Saturday. Thousands cf tons of this waste paper have heretofore been consigned to the the furnace and the incinerator, while every pound of it has real value in the paper man- ufacturing establishments. By saving tfiis paper you are con- serving the raw material, of which there' is a great scarcity, and also keeping .real wealth producing material from useless waste. Information has come to hand that the best kind of waste is book paper, found in magazines, old books, ledgers, etc., but old news- papers are useful. Although the long haul and high freight rates wili keep the Daughters of the Empire from making but little over their expenses, yet as the Minister of Trade and Commerce has pointed out, all who engage in this saying are performing a na- tional duty.
