Ten stalwart young Canadians, just
graduated from training camp at Re- e
gina. Saskatchewean. into the ranks o
of the Royal Northwest Mounted Po- t
lice, passed through Juneau last ov- t
enlng on the C. P. R. steamer Prin- \
cess Sophia. They are on their way ?.
to Dawson. Y. T., from where they 1
will be assigned to the several posts
in the Yukon and along the Mackcn t
tie River. They were accompanied i
by two officers.
Asked if many of the R. N. M. P. 1
boys had gone to war with the Can- I
adtan troops, one of the men said last '
night that the Canadian government 1
was keeping the mounted police ser
vice intact, but that many of the
"boys" had joined the Canadian over
seas contingent upon the end of their
service in the Mounted Police.
The sales by foreign owners of
American stocks for the purpose of
aiding in establishing credit in the
United States have affected the prices
of the Jackling stocks the same as it
has practically all other Issues.
The Boston News Bureau says thatj
since April 1 Paris sales of Jackling!
stocks have amounted to 99,535 shares j
In spite of those heavy sales all Jack-.
ling stocks have advanced since the
first of April. Jackling stocks have
been among those that foreign hold
ers can sell for more than they paid, j

Miss Hannah Biegert. a sister of
Miss Marion Biegert of the Alaska
Gastlneau office force, arrived from
the south on the Admiral Watson.
With a wisdom stimulated by noc- j
ssity. Canada ia about to take stock ,
if both her problems and her poaal- ,
illlties. The especially wise part of ^

These latter are obvious. They are
he products of the war strain super
imposed on & recent excess of expan
sion and some lack of symetry in de
velopment. They concern particularly
the status of governmental and rail
way finances and -credits, as affected
by temporary depression in Canadian
business and by derangement of cus
tomary sources of borrowed capital.
Over-ambitious railway building, fol
lowed by the shrinkage i,n traffic, has
raised some question of possible re
sort to the government guarantees on
securities of the newer lines?but. it
is to be noted, as to interest rather
than to principal. ' Melnwhile. as in
all countries, public revenues them
selves have suffered; Canadian gov

Is to care for undertakings under way
that the Dominion Is borrowing $40.
000,000 in New York, whither It now
must turn instead of to London, and
paying 5 per cent, therefore.
But behind these near necessities
looms the larger question of how Can
ada's indefinite future is based on till
age of the soil. Primarily the prob
lem is therefore one of agricultural
progress, both In acreage utilized and
in increased unit yield attained
through better cultivation, taught and
demonstrated. There is a tremendous
margin for expansion of improved
farm area. There are numerous op
portunities for applying special meth
ods to diverse local conditions. Only
a beginning of progress has been
made in "mixed farming." There is
the need, and with it soon the prob
ible chance. for attracting ugricul- <
ural Immigration op a larger scale '
han ever. Also, as linked with the '<
ssuo of transportation, there aro mat
ters of markets and marketing, land
ind ocean shipping and terminal fu
tilities. and, lnicdentally, of co-opera
tive activity among farm producers.
More cold storage and abattoir equip
ment is also needed in Canada.

Official announcements from Ber
lin and Vienna place the number of
Russian prisoners captured by the
German and Austrian forces during
the offensive movement against Rus
sia in the month of July at 221,838.
It is belieVed that the loss in killed
and wounded will increase the total
Russian casualties to 300,000. A Gen
eva dispatch would Indicate that the
Austrian and German losses are prob
ably even higher. The Austrian, loss
in the capture of Lublin alone was
over 70,000, and Gen, Mackcnsen lost
36,000 in making an advance of seven
milos with sovon army corps. It Ib
known that the capture of ITzasnyoz
cost the Germans more than 20,000.

Austrian and German losses in the
assaults against Warsaw, Ivangorod.

Dave Stranberg is making arrange

from the Upgrade to the Outside for
treatment. In recent placer opera
tions on the hillside at the head of

revealed quartz, and a quantity of

for shipment.
While no well-defined quartz ledge
has ever been discovered on the hills
at the head of Flat creek, small string

these are invariably rich. Numerous

vicinity, and the recent discoveries
at the Upgrade will lend interest to
the search for quartz in that vicinity.

Andre Anderson, Chlcagoan, who's
looking for heavyweight title honors,
has a novel excuse for his recent
knockout in a Kentucky flght with
Jack Dimon. Anderson, who is six

planted under his chin followed him

slipped a cog for Fritz, old boy. The
dope slipped when Cobb decided to
lead the league himself. So far Fritz

21 back of Ty, who is out in front
with 60. Maisel has a good chance of
