OTTAWA, Nov. 25.--Tho ijovern-mont has directed the preparation � of a list of claiuiii by Canadians arising out of the illegal methods of wai^faro by the enemies during the war. These claims arise through the torpedoing of ships without warning, the aerial bomljing of unfortified places, and commandeering or requlsltioninB witl\-out compensation, destruction aiul similar illegal acts on land. TMe Canadian claims are largely limited to the first class mentioned. The claims relate "to loss of life, as well as of property. A further list la also to bo made covering claims for damages arising out ot breaches of contracts with neutrals which were declared illegal becauso of the. neutrals making the claims being oh the Statutory i:.ist of persons in neutral countries,' commonly called the Black List. All persons having claims indicated should file them without delay. The making of this list does not imply an undertaking on the part ot the government to put forward the claims at the peace conference, or any assurance that if put forward they will he paid. But the list should bo completed without delay so as to enable the government to make a demand if an occasion tberp-for should arise. lnsti;pctions,~ showing the method of filing claims and the proof to be forwarded, may be, obtained from Thomas Mulvey, under-seoretpy of statel the officer apppint-ed by the orde'r-in-councll to prepare, examine and report upon ihe 'blHims! l[ifE!J A PerfectTreatnieirf For This Ol^tressiDg Coniplaii)!  . , U'jisjso, Out.

Semenoff, the anti-BolshevIki commander in the trahs-Balkal region, at odds with tlv9 Omsk all-Russlan government, the state department received the* first unfavorable news tliat has come front Siberia in week^. Officials are puzzled by the development, because Oehi Semenoff has been one of the most consistent workers for the eliminatioii of Bolshevikiistn, and the re-establishment of a stable government in Russia since the overthrow of the Czar.r It is regarded as probable here th jt Admiral Kolchak, in assuming authority as dictatoi> ot the Omsk government has declared himself head of the armed forces of the government, as would be natural, and that he.hivB offended Semenoff. Hope is felt, hbw^ ever, tliat Semenoff's friendship fm" Qen. HorvatU will overcome his antipathy for Kolchak. QCBBHIC,. Nov. 25.--Kin-Lher evidence of.a senStttiona!
