RON SPRINGS AND TURIN GO OVER THE TOP The Iron Springs-Turin section of the LeiUbridge district has gone away over its estimate in the Victory Loan, as testified to today by E. Ainsworth, captain of that district. The estimate made for this district by Chairman Baalim was only J3000. rather low. The i amount subscribed up till last night was SSTOO, or more than S5000 above the estimate, and the Turin corner of the district is still to be canvassed, j This alone is expected to yield $3000. It is being tjin\-as8ed by Mr. Rutherford. The other canvasses-s were L. Haines and J. C. Livingstone. An Irish pEUosopher says that eveaw-thing comes to the man who gets up and hustles while he sits down and w�lt�. � The influenza .'situation in the city toda.f iB not any worse, accordln;; to Dr PeVober. who believes tbe situiv-tion is bcRinning to improve.

Nelson & Co. COR. THIRD AVE. AND SEVENTH ST. S.-SHERLOCK BLDG, �jfr ; The board of management of the Gait mines library met last night in the miners' library to discuss ways and means to assist in combatting the Spanish influenza now raging in the city and which is daily groiviug worse. Owing to the shortage of doctors and nurses in the city, many cases of flu' are not receiving the proper medical attention necessary (or them to regain their health. The board were of the opinion that all buildings suitable of being turned into temporary hospitals, should be immedir.tely taken over by the provincial board of health, as this would enable the doctors and nurses now available to attend to a great many cases at once and give them proper attention, something they are unable to do at present. After full consideration was givei> to the question, a resolution was passed, that the Miners' library be immediately turned over to Dr. Galbraith and Dr. Lynn, to be used as a temporary hospital for the employees of Gait mines and their dependents, who arc suffering from Spanish influenza. The board of management would ask that the hospital board of the city and commlssioneri take immediate atjtlon In r�g*r* to securing suitable accommodation for influenza cases, by having them placed in buildings where they can receive tiip best of care and by doing so l.�-'p to arrest the ,spread of this drc ' .'/.^cz-ae. SOME CLASH AUTHORITY IN THE CHILDREN'S AID "There is no intention of the Chil-' dren's Aid Society to control any of [ the expenditure attached to the up- 1 keep of the shelter here and the pur- ; Buance of the work of the aid," said Rev. A. E. Snow, chairman of the aid, 1 to the Herald this morning. Mr. Snow | took exception to Mayor Hardie's in-1 terpretation of the aid's request that the control of the probation officer pass direct to the aid, instead of being in the police department as at present. Mr. Snow stated that they were only i asking for something that the other | cities of the province had already oh- \ tained. lie stated that much difficuJ- j ty was occurring from time to time relative to the performance of duties by the probation officer, there being occasionally clashes between the aid and the city police department as to duties that were to be performed, and it was felt by the aid that if the probation officer were under their direct control, the work tould be pursued to better advantage. The expenditures In connection with the work would still be controlled by the city. "Not one dollar of our money has ever been spent without the O. K, of the city authorities," said Mr. Snow, "and furthermore, the commissioners are ex-officio members of our aid, and are at liberty to come to the meetings at any time." .
