British Goyt Takes Radical Ac- tion to Limit Buying Power on Speculation Winnipeg, Oct. and Bot- teriU received the following report from their Ch'.ciiKO agenti: lias been substantial foreign specula- tion interest in our wheat market for some time past, which has given sup- port, and which has been misbelieved to be actual report buying at various times. Recent action or the British government, I am told, prohibits the de spatch "of orders to this country from uow on. Therefore, thu buying power under the speculative' wheat market has been reduced and the evening-up process will likely briny selling." Following up this report, Mr. Baird got into communication with hU Chi- cago agents further la this connec- tion, realizing that such an action would play an important part in the price making. Substance of Order During the afternoon ho received the following: "This announcement that the gov- ernment was prohibiting the sending of orders is baaed on the following: "Indirect Intimation that American houses doing a grain business and having offices in England have been notified by their managers on that Bide of the water the British gov- ernment would prohibit hereafter the sending of orders for speculative pur- poses in American markets in wheat. Beyond this' we do not know Juut what plans may be influencing or how far reaching such plans may be. This certainly injects a new phase into tho situation of very marked importance, as undoubtedly a fair proportion of foreign orders have been for individ- ual accounts, and largely speculative in nature, and the withdrawal of this foreign buying directly affects ths buying power in the pit. Par Reaching Plane "It also indicates that far reaching plans are under way on the of the British government to eliminate every possible influence on prices that would be detrimental and to control sides of the situation that they possibly can enter into. "Undoubtedly the main and primary object is to reduce the cost and un- less this effort fails the logical con elusion is that it is against and not in favor of higher prices." Mr. Baird's summing up of the re- port is Evidently the early an- nouncement this week that the British government had taken over the entire wheat Importing trade of the United Kingdom, and later announcement that it was the intention of the gov- ernment to commandeer tonnage at their pleasure and reduce '.the actual cost of transportation in their desire to reduce the price of foodstuffs grains especially, apparently was construed as bullish by the'trade of Uio United Kingdbm, and by reason of the government taking over the trade it made it impossible for them to do any speculating 'ia future in their own consequence, there ia clear evidence that active buying of American futures took place for foreign account.

Back Up Service Board The drastic action now proposed by jome of Premier Borden's advisers is to forthwith announce a policy of modifield conscription, backing up the National Service board with some real authority to get after tho slackers and allocate men either to the ranks of the overseas forces or to the neces sary works of production, on which depend the continued war output of munitions. The Nationalist nliuis- .ers, from Quebec have, of. course, op- losed drastic action along this line, n a speech in Quebec last week Hon. Mr. Patenaude went so far as to say that if the slackers did not want to en- ist or do other war work the gov- ernment should let them alone. Issue Must Be Big The Ontario members, however, are urging that the'only thing which can save the party will be to come out at once with some definite campaign, paying no attention to the Conserve lives' erstwhile support in Quebec and making a play for the manufac- urers' and soldiers' votes by appeal- ng -for an endorsatlon ot the policy of modified conscription both of fight- ers and workers that would make an ssue big enough, it is contended, to demand an appeal to. the country, and it is thoght that the new gov- would grant a dissolu- tion on that ground without insisting on another session ;of parliament, furthermore, it is hoped that by rais- n a spectacular issue of thisi kind lublCc attention will be drawn away administrative. failures of he .pait four years and centre the campaign on the big issue of con- scription or no conscription. As far as can be learned at pres- ent, the government is-now wavering between the alternatives of meeting larllament and hanging on to power lor at least another few months or of taking the plunge now and getting it all over quickly on a bold issue.

This favorite C'lua'dlan haunt in' preeminently a land of the holiday- maker and sportsman. St. Andrews, where Is situated the popular Cana- dian Pacific Algonquin Hotel, and many other seasMfl places are haunts of the bather and outdoor game player during the holiday sea- Bon of June, Jul7, August and Sep- tember. No sooner hfivo the sum- mer holiday folks and fishermen left the province than the hunters of the big game take their places, for at the opening of the big game season large numbers of hunters of both sexes appear with their guns amidst the thick forests of the laud. New Brunswick is one of the moat popular of the Canadian provinces for big game hunting. Moose, caribou and deer are. plentiful In this reKion. A magnificent specimen of big game is the moose. When fully grown he weighs over Ibs. His massive antlers are long and gener- ally average six feet In width. He may be found In twelve of tho fifteen counties of the province. It Is only tho hunting folks and the wary guides who know how to hunt the moose. There Is tho "calling" done early in tile season, aud the "stii: hunting" done later the cold weather. In September and October the moose is often surprised aud ghot wading In the. lakes and rivers feasting on the roots of water plants While pursuing the moose, tho hun ter can distinguish between the tracks of the male and the female, foi the male leaves round tracks an( those of the female arc somewhat pointed. Fredericton, Havelock, New castle. Bathurst, Campbellton and Perth are good starting points. A graceful antlercd monarch of New Brunswick Is the caribou. He weighs about 600 Ibs. on an average It is a delightful sight to watch him stride at a waliting rate, or trot, or gallop over the country. A full grown caribou stands from four and a half to five feet In height. Of this animal there are two varieties, the woodland and the barren ground species. Tbe woodland is somewhat taller than the other and its colof Is darker about the body, hut tho horns are lighter. It is generally found in herds of about half a dozen. The barren ground caribou travels in large herds, and Its coat Is light. This kind Is noted for its migratory habits. In New Brunswick the places the hunters are likely to achieve the best results are North West Mlramlcbl, Restlgouche. Upsal- qiiitch, Nepisiguit, and Tobiquo Rivers. The starting points for these areas are Newcastle, Campbellton, Bathurst, Chatham and PeVth all of which are reached by the Edmunds- ion Brancn of tha Canadian PacIHc. There are few localities in New Brunswick where a deer may not be located Like the moose and tue caribou gives those who follow him an interesting and pleasant SPSportnmen desirous of hunting the big game of New Brunswick may se- cure good accommodation at the homes of their guides. Good hotels and hoarding houses are also avail- The season for the hunting of the moose, caribou, and deer opens on September 15th and continues to No- vembcr 30th. Shooting on Sunday is prohibited 'by, law. Non-resident hunters must be accompanied by a 'licensed guide. The license to kill one bull moose, one bull ct'ibou, and two deer costs a bona fide resident ot the province S3 and a non-resident iO. Hunting with hounds Is for- bidden. This year tho opening of the bis game season was marked by the ex- hibition for sale on the St. John mar- ket of moose and deer meat. In re- cent times there has beeu a consider- able reduction In the number of males amongst tho larger New Bruns- wick game, and the people are be- coming alive to the necessity for be- ing more careful. Indiscriminate shootiug Is being checked to some extent at all events, and it has been suggested that the sale of the meat of big game on the markets should be stopped to discourage the hunter who hunts for the purpose of making money.
