Wednesday july 7, 1915. The Telephone shortage. The appraisal of the physical assets of the Telephone system car ried out under instructions from the new Liberal government confirms in a striking manner the claims of the late Liberal opposition in the matter of Telephone administration. This appraisal snows that while the records show an outlay 897.072.00 in Cash upon the Tele phone system the present actual value of the system is Only 504.00, making a shortage of 568.00. Of this amount re presents a payment to the Bell Telephone company is excess of the actual value of the system while the balance is made up of payments for maintenance made out capital which should have been met out of Revenue. It was during the first three years of the operation of the provincial Telephone system that this failure to provide maintenance out of income was the fixed policy of the government. It was during these three years that the provincial treasurer abstracted from the Tele phone funds amounts aggregating under the pretence that they represented legitimate sur pluses from the operation of the system. It is now Plain beyond Dis Pute that the Hoblin government took from the Telephone system the moneys which should have gone Toj maintenance and turned them into j the general Revenue of the province in order to create a fictitious sur plus upon which they could Appeal to the Public for support. The moneys which were thus deflected from their proper up keep of the replaced by capital expenditure with the re sult that when the audit was taken there was revealed a discrepancy Between the actual and the claimed value of the property. It in perhaps Worth recalling that during most of these three years when the Telephone system was administered in Defiance of business rules or. Minister of Public in charge. When he went to Ottawa lie left the system in such shape hat successor was obliged to order a Large increase in the rates. This led to a notable outburst of Public opinion and an investigation followed in which there were revelations of political manipulation to the injury of the system. Since then the Telephone business of the province has been managed by the new commission in a fairly efficient manner and it promises in time to a valuable Public asset. The appraisal will oblige a re statement of the position of the Tele phone system in the Public records of the province. The new statement show the actual value of the system As it stands today and the shortage of will appear j 33 intangible capital on the re cords where it will remain As a re minder of the methods of the Roblin government. It is Jiro posed to wipe out this capital for which there is to show a series of annual instalments. Strictly speak ing the improperly taken from the Telephone revenues by the province should he returned but in Tho present condition of the provincial finances this is not practicable. Explained at great length to the commission that he thought an out Lay of these proportions would be justified if by the withdrawal of the petitions it was made possible for the Roblin government to remain in office. When sir Redmond Goblin made announcement on the Day that the legislature prorogued that a Royal commission would be a. Pointed to look into the charges made by or. Hudson or. Howden notified or. Chambers that the chances of the government pulling through had been Cut in two and he therefore declared that he was not prepared to Advance More than 000 for the purpose of securing the withdrawal of the petitions. On april 14 or. Howden had so he a conversation with or. T. C. Morris at the Royal Alexandra hotel at which or. Morris it is charged stated that any arrange ment made by with or. Cham Bers would be All right. Following this conversation or. Howden instructed or. Newton to take out of the vault arid give it to or. Chambers. The remaining was replaced in the vault subject to or. Newton s orders the understanding upon which the Money was advanced to or. Chambers was that he was to see that the petitions against the conservative members were withdrawn. Conservative solicitors interested in the election petitions reported to or. Howden however that the lib eral solicitors informed them that they had no instructions to with draw petitions. Or. Howden there upon asked or. Chain Bei s to have the necessary instructions and was told that such instructions would Issue. These were the Only Steps taken by or. Howden b the time that the Money was paid Over to or. Chambers and the resignation of the Roblin government to get value for the payment of the towards the end of april when the conservatives wanted in a hurry they borrowed it from or. Chambers and afterwards replaced the Money from the Deposit in the safety Deposit vault. The finally reached or. Horwood or or. Salt via or. Howden and or. Whitla. On May 12 the Roblin govern ment resigned. At that time the originally raised had been disposed of in this manner or. Chambers had had been Given to Salt or Horwood and j the balance had been taken out of the safety Deposit vault by or. New-1 ton and returned through or. How j Den to or. Simpson prior to parture for the front. In return for the which he had received. Or. Chambers had done nothing. The election petitions had not been withdrawn nor had the Liberal solicitors received any instructions to co operate with the conservative j lawyers in securing their drawl. J a few Days subsequent to the change of government or. Cham Bers waited upon or. Howden and tendered the the Pur pose for which the Money had been the War heavy fighting everywhere the fighting la the great War is approaching the maximum in. Violence As the Midsummer period sets in and Over eighty per cent. Ujj the Battle front it is the Austro German forces that Are on the offensive launching furious tacks on both fronts. The Devotion of the German general staff to the traditional prussian theory that in War whether the defence or aggression the one the Iii. To do is to at tack has not been weakened by the events or the Jas eleven months Atid still that mighty War machine with its Centre i out wave after wave of Force East and West against the armies of the allies in a frantic determination by superhuman exertions by incredible sacrifices to heat them Down. These vast operations viewed As a whole give Tilo impression of inexhaustible resources and unquenchable energies. Yet there is a limit to everything even to resources and determination of nation and it is still As Tiue As Ever it was that Germany s plan of Campaign if it does not result in Early decisions is precisely the kind of Campaign that the Allied generals would desire her to wage. All talk about a collapse on the part of Germany when she realizes the magnitude of her task has ceased. The German War lords Long ago abandoned their Rosy dreams of a Short March to Victory Over decadent. Enemies. They now know of that everything they value is at position of Germany in the world the Posi Tion of Prussia in Germany the dominance of the military caste the maintenance of the present form of government so pleasing to the privileged classes. Defeat for those in charge of the War the loss of every thing they value they Are there fore pouring into the conflict every Man they can raise and every gun they can. Man in the Hope of forcing a decision in the summer months that re main. Another Winter s Campaign will put upon their Powers a Strain that they do not like to consider. The big. German offensive is still i directed against involves nothing less than a huge flanking opera Tion the greatest Ever known from the South and from the North with a View to getting behind Warsaw enveloping the russian army and accomplishing a coup that would give the russian Empire a staggering lilo. The strongest attack is from galicia., now reconquered from the South. As the germans Pene trate into Poland the advantages of position of transportation facilities of supplies of. Reserves All favor the russians and there is some reason to Hope that they will Beable to bring the offensive to a Stop. On the Western front the germans have been attempting an offensive on a fairly Large scale along the the Vosges to Gois Sones with Specia violence in the Forest South. And in the Argonne Northeast of Verdun. The last vigorous the germans on the Western front took place alone the failed after three we rfcs of furious lighting chiefly through the resistance of the British including the Canadian expeditionary Force at Ypres. Now the germans prepared to make another trying to and Vance in the neighbourhood of Verdun. This is a sector upon which it is easy to Maszl forces owing to its proximity to Germany. 1c there Are now additional reserves in Germany in. Men aug material ready to be sacrificed it is easy to see that Germany might try the effect of a drive at this the worst it wow relieve the steady French pressure North of Arras. The new Ger Man offensive has now been going on for a week with no results Worth while according to the French reports Bui Paris also reports that the operation is still proceeding1 and has not yet reached its maximum. It is to be assumed that Joffre will Welcome the Opportunity to stand on the defensive and inflict heavy losses upon the attacking forces. The italians Are doing splendidly against the despite an Ever strengthening resistance. Progress is being made in every the Trentino toward Trent in the Carnic alps., where an. Advance is being made towards the important Junction of Tarvis along the Sonzo where. Plava and Tollino have been captured within the last week. The real. Italian offensive is along the Sonzo what the. Italians Are doing in the Trentino and in the Dolomite Alps is to capture and fortify the passes to prevent an Austria Ger Man offensive taking the main italian army in the rear. Apparently the March on Trieste awaits the fall of Goritz which still resists the italian attack. The most vigorous offensive which the Anglo French forces Are waging at the moment. Is in the Dardanelles where determined attempts to capture the Heights of Ruthia and acht Baba Are proceeding. The area is so limited Here that an Advance of two Miles by the allies would do the trick and Force the Dardanelles making possible a naval attack on. Constantinople. The turks Are Apar Ritly Short of ammunition. A continuously vigorous offensive m this District gives Promise of Large results. Some indication of the extent of the British operations at is afforded by the impressive figures Given to the British House of commons by or. Asci Ith the other Day. Since the beginning of. The Campaign the British casualties at the Dardanelles have exceeded a Reader s notes books Are a finer world within the remarkable Eti Bejeck the remarkable evidence of James h. Howden sex attorney general before the Royal commission in direct examination and Cross examination covered some six hours and. As it was of necessity very discursive it May to advisable to put it in smaller Compass for the information of the Public. J sometime last Winter towards end of february or the beginning of j March or. To Cleu had conferences with one Giorge m. Newton a merchant of this City who is an Aci ivc cons croat Ivy. And Ian chem licit. I spa agent 1 of tins City a Lio is s Liberal j so alleges sikh he could Sctiro Trio withdrawal of acc Roii petitions members. Pro a i Mere wort in continuance in office of the Roblin be no longer served. No advantage was to be gained by the withdrawal of the election petitions at that time because it was already obvious that the new government intended at an Early Date to Appeal to the electors. But although or. Chambers could no longer even pretend to give value for Tho Money entrusted to or. Howden refused to accept the Money. He told the court that he thought there was a political advantage in leaving the Money in. The Possession of or. Chambers. On May 26 or. George m. Newton j you Are her Only citizens and1 we secured the Money from or. Cham Bers. On monday of this Wnuk he transferred the Money to or Harvey Simpson who immediately bought .1 draft and forwarded it to brother or. Simpson in France. Is this Rera Alkabo evidence which we recommend to the careful consideration of the Public Gener ally particularly in connection with the evidence which will be adduced later respecting this transaction by the parties whose names have been mentioned by or. Howden. I.

The gain team Are provided with special protective Shields for the eyes nose ears and Mouth. The Cost of every round fired is valued at Tho Range attained during the siege of Liege was 13 to 14 Miles. Contrary to general opinion the 42 was not employed for the bombardment of Antwerp. The heaviest Eun used there was the 305-mm. Cun of the 1914 Model first tried in january 1914. The effect of its fire was devastating the belgian forts were Sim ply blown to atoms. This Eun was also used against Liese Nam i and Mau Beuge and proved much service Able than the round which popular terror had spun such a legend. Can also be divided into Bec lpns which Are susceptible of motor transport. The motors used Are of 100 horsepower each capable of dragging a weight of 3c metric tons at the rate of ten Kilometres an hour. The Cater pillar wheels of these motor dragger enable them to travel Over ground impassable traffic. This comparative mobility with great facility in handling and almost equal effectiveness of fire constitutes the superiority of the 30-s-mm.

A correspond Lent in Roumania sends the following to the daily chronicle was an austrian siege artillery officer who had spent several months in Antwerp and then been drafted to the Eastern front for the preparation of the May Advance. What he did not know about the monster guns the Ger mans havoc a in this War is not Worth knowing. Bit by bit i wormed some of the facts out of . The Only places where Tho German 42-cm. Used were Liege and Namur they Only Fred a few shots and they turned out to by a costly comparative failure. The 42 is a mortar to adjust its pieces that require twelve railway wagons for transport a minimum of 24 hours is required. The Cement foundation on which the huge fabric is placed must be at least eight metres deep. The total weight of the mortar is about 50 tons to this must. However be added of the base which is reckoned at Between 37 and 38 tons. The actual gun is Short which is of course the characteristic of All mortars.
