VOL. CXLIV. NO. 239 THE GAZETTE, MONTREAL, FIUDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1915. GERMAN PRISONERS ' OF POOR PHYSIQUE Mount Temple's Quota of 1, 200 Did Not Average ' Up Well DEATH ' OF JOHN ADAMS Familiar Figure on Waterfront Passed Away Yesterday r Steamers Still Pressing Forward to Montreal When those on board the Mount Temple, which arrived In port yes terday, surveyed the J,20( German priBonera carried from France to England by the Canadian Pacific vessel after the Franco-British drive towards Lens, they came to the conclusion that It was the equipment, the organization and the preparation of the Germans rather than their men which are maintaining their success at this stage of the war. An" ex tremely large proportion of the pris oners were or poor physique, and many of them wore spectacles. " It may , nave Been due to the circum stances that they appeared to be in. a spiritless mood, but the impression given the observers was that such men could not possibly stand against tho Kind of 'men' the vessel had been carrying over to France since the war began. Wherever it is a question of men again men, the French and the Uritish will always win, according to tne Mount xciuple officers and crew who saw these German prisoners "The outdoor Germans, who were line men physically as well as good Germans, have gone long ago," said one of the officers yesterday. '-"What remain are the town-bred "Germans of the factory and office, who have never had the exercise habit beyond : the military training. The physical examination, which let many of them through, could not have been very strict." The Mount Temple, among the tens of thousands of soldiers which she has been the means of transporting to France, carried the 13th Battalion (5th Royal Highlanders), whiqh afterwards had so many, casualties , . The men were brimful of enthusiasm, and glad that at last they were being sent the front. DEATH OF JOHN ADAMS. -to In . the death of Sir., John Adams, 88 Sherbrooke street west, yesterday morning - from heart failure, there passed a man who has been a familiar figure along the water front from his position In charge of .the wharf office 7 of the Shipping Federation. In his sixty-odd . years he had had a very wide and varied sea experience before coming to Montreal more than a decade ago. He had been employed . mainly with .the States Steamship Company and the Orient Steam Navl- eation Company during his life at sea, irec the httfp4i!g,"-F(ievlrtion Was opened here in 1903, Mr. Adams , has been connected with the organization, except for the first few years. He was a Scotsman and unmarried. His funeral will take place from Armstrong & Company's undertaking establishment, on Park avenue, at 2.30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. STEAMSHIP MOVEMENTS.

HAGKMAN TRIED , ON TREASON CHARGE Austrian Says He Was Taken Across Border After . Paying $15 'Albert Harden, a hackman of Point St. Charles, . was placed on trial in the Court of Sessions yesterday, before Judge Bazin, on a charge of treason, it being alleged that he aid ed enemies of the King to escape from Canada to the United States. Harden was first arrested"" early in the summer, but at the preliminary enquete was discharged by Judge Leet, who held that there was not suf. ficient evidence to commit him for trial. Security was then given for' costs to take the case before the Grand Jury in the Court of King's Bench, and at the September term of the Criminal Court a true bill was returned against the hackman. When he was called for arraign ment in the Court of King's Bench a few weeks ago, Harden made op tion to have his trial before the Court of Sessions, and It was commenced yesterday. Judge Bazin, after hearing the principal witness for the prose cution, adjourned the trial until Tuesday. Michael Scrlpka,. who claims - to have been one of two men whom Harden aided to get across the border into the United States, told Judge Bazin how it was done. He said that he and another Austrian, named Pe ter were employed In the G.T.R. yards at Point St. Charles, but were thrown out of work early In the (summer. They decided to go to the (United States, if it were possible for (them to get there. They had met (Harden six months previously. (through attending his dance hall In (Point St. Charles. One day they talk ed with him about leaving the coun try, and he agreed to take them across the line. Scrlpka said that he and Peter, accompanied .'.by Harden, went to Knowlton, Que., by train, land were driven from there into the United States. .The witness said that Ithey had paid Harden $15 for get ting them out of Canada, Peter, he (said, was now in Boston, nut he had (been induced to return to Canada and (was brought here to give evidence In (the case. - - - When the case Is continued on ITuesday morning, Detective Crowth-ters, who arrested Harden, with two br three military, men, who were working on the case, will be called las witnesses for the prosecution.

DAIRY PRODUCE v RULES QUIET At Brockville Cheese Sold f c Lower and at Kingston jc as Compared With Week Ago CABLE WAS UNCHANGED Business Over Cable and on Spot in Butter and Cheese Quiet Undertone to Market Easy Thursday Evening The receipts of butter today were 1,245 packages, as against 2.558 for the same day last week and 920 for the corresponding date a year ago, The trade was without any new feature today, business being still rather quiet owing to the somewhat limited demand from both local and outside buyers, which would indicate to some extent that they have ample supplies on hand for the present The receipts continue very fair and in excess of a year ago at this period, consequently stocks are accumulating some and the 'undertone to the market- is easy, but there is no actual change in prices to note as yet. We quote prices as follows: Finest creamery .. .. 320 to 33c Fine creamery.. ... .. 31V4C to 32c Seconds .. .. .. .. Sic to 81 Ho Dairy butter ... 26o. to 27c The receipts of cheese today were 7,581 boxes, as compared with 6.975 for the same day last week, and 6,354 for the corresponding date a year ago. The tone of the market is no doubt much easier than at this day last week as prices In the country today were all lower, the offerings at Kingston selling at 15 13-16c, which shows a decline of He per lb and some lots were sold at Brockville at 15c, which is c lower than a week ago. There was no Improvement in- the demand from English importers- and - business generally was very quiet. We quote, prices as follows: Finest colored cheese 1614c to 1640 Finest white cheese . . .ISftc to lo Finest eastern cheese... 15c to 16c Undergradoa ... ... ...1514a to lofto Country Cheese Boards (Special to The Gazette.) Brockville, Ont., October 28. Prices sagged a little at today's meeting of the cheese board, the market, on the whole being very irregular. The offerings totalled 3,173 boxes, a large make for the latter half of October. This, however, causes no : surprise In view of the prevailing ideal conditions tor grazing. High values have also stimulated the farmers to produce every pound of milk available. Colored continues to hold sway over white. 2,240 boxes of today's registration were colored. Proportionately, the regulars show the same high percent age. The best .price . off ered. was 15c, which failed to tempt the salesmen, notwithstanding that repeated calls were made by the buyers. Viewing the prices established at other mar- ketS tne hoWel.a Aid not eel uke part. ing with their goods at the even money, and no ealea were made. On the curb the regulars, it is thought, went . into the usual channels, and while 15c Is reported to have been bid, the general feeling may jnot warrant settlements being made as high as that figure in the case of lots going through on consignment. These will be matters for buyer and seller to tussle with a week hepce. Kingston, Ont., October 28. At Frontenac cheese board meeting here today 530 boxes of colored cheese were offered, 353 boxes sold at 1514c. Vankleek Hill., Ont., October 28.

THEPR0ViSI0N MARKET Hog Trade Quiet Owing; to Mild Weather Smoked and Cured Meats Fairly Active Thursday Evening There was no. further change In the hog situation today, but the undertone to the market cuiuinuus easy on account of the liberal supplies coming forward and as the heavier giaues are in excess of the requirements Miey are having a depressing wfm on the general condition of the market. Owing to the continued iiuld weather for the season of the year the demand for dressed stock is only fair and principal for small lots to fill' actual wants, consequently the volume of business doing is not as large as It should be and the market Im rather quiet, with sales of abattoir fresh-killed at $18.50 to $13.75 per 100 lbs. A fairly active trade continues to be done in all lines of smoked and cured meats for botn domestic and export account, and as supplies ure not excessive the tone of the market remains steady, with sales of 10 lb. hams at 18c per lb.; 13 to 14 lbs. at 17c, and heavy weights at 154c to 161&c, while English breakfast bacon is selling at 20c; Windsor selected bacon at 2So, and Windsor boneless bacon at 24c per The trade in lard continues fairly active and the condition 0f the market Is unchanged, with gales of pure leaf grades at 13c to 13ic per lb in 20 lb. wood pails, and at 12c to 12Wc in 20 lb.
