To Be Used by the Imperial Government for Relief During the War London, Oct. 10.-The London Gazette aayn tbat the gav-ernment of Hove. Scotia baa cabled an offer through Agent-Qeneral Howard; of $100,000 to be used by the Imperial government for the relief of national dlBtresE Caused by tho war. � The Honorable T. \V. Crothers, Do-iniaion Minister of Labor, thinks that the Canadian Western Natural Gas, Heat, Light and I'ower company is rcrfectlv within its right in increasing its rate, at this time of the worst year in southern Alberta's liis-torv, to 35 tents a thousand cubic feet". The iVtard of Trade's letter to Sir George E. Foster, was referred to Hon. Mr. Crothers, and here is his reply : "In your telegram to the Hon. Sir George 1'^. Foster, of the 10th ultimo, you said nothing about the franchise that the Canadian Western had with your city. "When I communicated with the president of the company and received ill repU a long letter from him, to say that, among other things the company ivid voluntarily rixluced tha price during tlie last year or two and atating several reasons why it. he-came necessary for then) to return to Ih:? price, originally agreed upon, tliat puts a different piiase on the matter altogctiicr. Instead of asking us to act cn the ground that the proposed price is exorbitant, it now appeirs that we are asked tc request tho company to charge a lesser price than they are by agroenient entitled to. Had I known the facts when writing tiie president of th� 'com- pany I would probably have written him'ina 'dilTercnt strain, "r am/not without hope that ns a invite the attention of tlie Govern- ment to.the matter. v.\ parallel case to whrA lias trans- HenricU Fritz Uapp, one oi the KaiHtr's corporals in the 33rd Laud-wehr regiment, W!io was arrested on Tluirsday evening following a little skirmish in wliioh Constable Swift plajed the roU of captor, declines with rea;ret tlie invitation of der Kaiiser to participate in his war game, llapp didn't mention the re-grct l)art of his retusal. Outside of the fact tliat he could not accept if he would, llapp is not particular a^bout being jirey tor vultures. He isn't so i sure but, ^wliat the cardboards are staclved against his emperor, and aside from tliat he is socialist ically inclined. Kapp is a (lerman all right, all right. He was a corporal in tlie, Landwchr, and was given two years' furlough to travel in CUuiada, the United Stales, Au.s'ralia and .\>v.' Zealand, but his Utile journey ended right here in Letlibridpe.

He is a univer.sity student, and holds a Gernian teacliing lertilieate. The charge against liim was withdrawn this morning in police court.
