Ital- ian liner Ancona has been sunk in the Mediterranean by a large submarine flying the Austrian colors. She car- "ried -122 passengers and 60 in the crew. Two hundred and seventy sur- vivors, some of them wounded, have .been landed at Bizerta Tunis. Had Reservists New -York, Nov. 0. The Ancona sailed from New York for Naples-on Oct. 17 she had on board 245 Ital- ian reservists and a'general cargo. She arrived on October 29, and wan due to sail from Naples for New York today, Nov. 9. The Ancona was built at Belfast in 1908. She had a gross tonnage of 8210, was 482 feet in length and 58 feet beam. A Prince on Board Rome, via Paris, Nov.

Should it develop.that Ameri- cans aboard lost their lives and that the steamer was torpedoed without warning the Vmerlcan eminent probably would demand ol the Aus- trian government disavowal of act, reparation and assurances that there would be no repetition of the incident. Three Hundred Drowned London, Nov. dispatch to Lloyd's from Bizerta, says that 300 persons 011 tlio Ancoua were drowned. "UnnecBMary Crime" Now York, Nov. Hart- field, general manager of the Italian line, characterizes the sinking of tho Ancoua as "an unnecessary and "Absolute murder." He has led the Naples office of Ms firm ing for all information regarding disaster. Although he has no list of her passengers, Mr. Hartfield the Ancona on bar last few voyages tp- this .country had carried a number of American citizens in tha first cabin and in the steerage. Most of her passenger list, Mf. Hartfield says, has been made up of women and children. He believe! she carried a large number of women and children on her present voyage. j The-Ancona carried a crew ol 180 I men. At no time, said Mr. Hartfteld, j did the Ancona carry guns or minii- tions of jwar, because it was against; of his company to carry war materials on the same vessel; ivitli passengers. The Ancona has been; in the Italian service for six years, and -without her cargo was valued at more than The -steamer played a prominent: part-in'the rescue of passengers from: the-burning or the Pabre liner Santa :Anria in mid-Atlantic last September.

Supreme Court Quashes City Pool Hall Licenses Municipalities m Ai'ucita will not lie able to collect licenses from pool- and billiard halls, accordinj-jo a tier cision handed by the supreme court en bane, m Calgary, m the appeal of the Lethbridge pool hall men against the decision of Magis- trate Elton that they must pay the city license in addition to the license collected by the province. The particular case in which the appeal was made was that of the city vs. Held and Perry The city license' on their pool hall amounted to S50, and they refused to pay it, claiming they were not called on to pay this, as they were paymp; a li- cense to the provincial government under th-j pool halls act, passed two years ago. Magistrate Elton decided in police court that the city could collect the license. The defendants api pealed the decision with the, above result. The supreme court held that the provincial act took away from the municipalities the power to li- cense the pool haltf. As this is a test case, the decision will apply to all municipalities. This means- a considerable loss of; to the cities and towns. The proyln-- cial -license is 110 for the first table and 55 each for ever? other table. The city license in Lcthbridgt was just double the provincial license. Ill is likely that the decision jmt m- dered will be accepted by dtr Dual. R. A. Smith represented tha pool hall owners in the appeal. The system of consolidated schools is becoming very popular in.the rural districts of the according to. John T. Ross, chief inspector of schools, who ivas m the city jester- day, and who lias been spending; some time in the southern districts. Mr. Ross believed that the consoli- dated schools already established at Warner, Coatdale, Barons and other points In the south were proving suc- cessful, and be'.ieved also that the scheme would be more widely devel- oped in the near future. Air. Ross finds the general condi- tion in the school districts in'- the south considerably more hopeful than, a year ago. Last year the provincial government set aside the sum of 000 for the aid of rural school districts in the province, :in tiding over the fin- ancial stringency.; Not all of this "am ount was drawn upon, and the school districts which needed assistance are, says "Mr. Ross, now in a position, or will be shortly m a position, to pay all or a part of their indebtedness to the provincial government in respect of this assistance. I Mr. Ross has nothing but praile for the careful manner In which the- ma- jority of school districts have financed during the past difficult year or two, and the success with which many of Ihem have economized, -white the same time keeping up the efficiency I la instruction.

The extreme heaviness.of the crop and the scarcity of threshing ma- chines, not-to mention the hard luck threehermen have experienced this vear owing to the tangled condition of some crops, are directly responsible for only half of the crop being now threshed.
