Margeson j of the separation allowance and as-! signed pay branch of the department j 'of militia, who visited the city on' Tuesday. Major Margeson is now on a tour of the west gathering informa- j ;ion on which to base a report and on j this report the government will decide \ what steps should be taken. 1 According to Major Margeson the plan divides into two proposals. There ; will likely be a general increase in  these allowances throughout the whole ] of Canada. In addition to this gen-' era! increase there will he further in-j creases according io the cost of living j 1n local districts. Where -$60 a month ! might provide a very fair living tor a wife and three children in some of the older counties in the east, investigation might prove that it'would require $90 or $100 in some of the western � Office cities. The general increase will therefore be augtaeiited in placed where there are special circumstances' to warrant it. ALL OVER CANADA ASK WAR BONUS! of Last of Epidemic Police Seem Powerless Prevent.

It was felt that if the thieves, who would rob the soldiers of the mite the children contribute, out of the goodness of their hearts" and-their patriotism, could be caught they should be severely punished, and' the police are expected to put forth more than usual effort to apprehend them. During the past two weeks there has been an epidemic of petty thievery and storebreaking going on in the city.

The Soldiers' Settlement Board at Ottawa has sent a definition of Uie terms "honorable record," and "hon-jorable discharge" nhd "on active ser-jvice," the.terms under which the eligibility of the returned men is deter-! mined to partaking In the soldier's 1 settlement. j Not all soldiers who' have enlisted ' are entitled to the belief its under Uu; act. This has been a stumbling block to the men, but the board has niartla its �position plain in this respnc'. and explains the terms, also the eligibility for benefits. , For instance ah officer who wont to England, which is considered .an actual theatre of -war, and who refused to revert in rank to go to France is not eligible. , , The chief qualification is for the to bo work of , ulnn l0 have soen serVice in France. Unless he lias been dishonorably discharged, this settles the question of his eligibility. In the case of the officers several have made application for the benefits under the act but it was pointed nut to them that unless they could show-service in France either in rank or by reversion in rank their plea would not be entertained. .
