inary survey of the situation there, in 
view of the strong probabilities that tlie 
greater part of the western Can

Pacific coast seaports. 

Oi >tn men here have come to that con- 
clusion after this year'e experience of 
the railways' failure to adequately 
handle the transport for last year's 
grain crop by the usual route, and are 
now taking steps to secure connections 
and ascertain what facilities will be 
i seary in connection with the grain 
traffic from the Pacific .through tfle 
Pacific --'oast ports. The C. N. R. and 
Q. T. P. lines through the mountains on

OTTAWA, Feb. 21. --The provinces

their jurisdiction in regard to marriage 

when a stated ease founded upon the. 
Lancaster bill goes befwe the supreme 
court, it is said that. Wullaee Nesbitt, 
K.C., as counsel for the Dominion kov- 
ernment, will argue that it Is within 
tin- power of the parliament to ens 
tn.- Lancaster bill and make it law. 
Provinces may send counsel to argue the 
other side of the question. 1 f they do 
not, the Dominion government will 
probably make such provision as Is nec-

rather the question which it Involves, 
questions being so drawn as to cover

It now appears that the argument on 
the marriage law reference t<> the

will include a considerable number of 
lawyers, the government having decid- 
ed to provide counsel to represent both 
views on the questions submitted, and,

WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.— Determine, 
that no American lives shall be sacri- 
ficed as a result of fighting on the 
Mexican border. . the -'Onlted states 
troops along, the Rio Grande were W 
Inforced today, and orders were given 
that firing into American territOi 
must be stopped, even though It be 
necessary to cross the boundary Hue 
to enforce compliance. 

The order, the most sweeping that 
has be, ii s.nt out from the White House 
in the present situation, was Issued 
after conference between [resident 
r.,M, Secretary of War Slimson and 
acting Secretary of State Huntington 
Wilson. Tn addition to sending another 
regiment of Infantry and three bat- 
teries of artillery to the Mexican line, 
orders were issued to division com- 
ma nders throughout the country to hold 
their commands In readiness to move 
at a moment's notice. 

The acute situation in Mexico has had 
the effect of putting the army in a 
state of preparedness, and mobiiizuiion 
,,n th« rtlo (Jrande could be. effected 
quickly, if necessary. The Mexican 
government, it is understood, will be

"There, have been so many bad acts 
in Mexico caused by yonr great efforts

you put at half mast the flags of your

called 'William McKinley' and he paid

The document charges the El Paso

Having made his statement, the mem- 
ber did nut repeat H, but rather quali- 
fied it by the observation that the only 
contribution of the members referred to 
was then. When they signed the roll for 
their indemnities. These government 
supporters reminded ' him ;tlway» 

strangely of the heroes of balaclava,

Mr. Manson (Hkeena) congratulated 
the minister of finance on being able to

Bond of Sympathy 
In connection with his (Mr. "Wil- 
liams") seconding of a certain resolu- 
tion of the member for Albernl. the pre- 
mier had deliberately mis-stated his 
position; The only bond of sympathy 
between the member fur Alberni and 

himself was a i 'itop estimation of the 

prlneipb-s of Hi- gfoverhment, other- 
wise their views win far apart. He 
rem w.d his annual complaint aboui the 
IreatmeiiL of s. lio.ds in hts district 
when he came down to discuss the 
matter with the minister of ..tin ition 
that gentleman met lilni with the diffi- 
dent ingenuousness of a blushing 
sel.oolglrl. In fact the whole matter 

seemed to be left in the Bands or the 
Conservative patronage commltteo of 
Newcastle district, and the elected rep- 

ii. '.illative was igliOFl-d. When the 
minister Of public works came through 
hi., district recently; the spoils commit- 
tee was duly notified, but he himself 
v. as only sent a short notice in the 
m.-rning. Which he might or might not 
ii:i\- got in the mail. 

Hut he did hold the minister up as lie 
was driving along the roud with the de- 
feated Conservative candidate, :uip- 

pcis aiy "trotting that gentleman around 

in order to show the people how much 
more they might expect if they elected 
a Conservative." 

Proud of Its People 
While tie did not make a practice of 
boasting about tie resources «f hady- 
smith, h- was proud of Its people. They 
i> :<i between three and four thousand 
people in the town of I.adysmlth, be- 
sides three or four mining towns out- 
side, and a large farming district In ad- 
dition. Yet they had no jull and no 
lockup, and only one policeman, and no | 
need for more. They ha.l not militia- 
men and no boy scouts. They had more 
children In proportion to the adult 
population than any other place in Bri- 
tish Columbia, and he Unew •?' no batter 
et than the little, folks. They Were 

mostly the children of working-people,

the provincial university proposal, it 
was because he felt that while that was 
bring subsidized the schools where these 
children Were educated were neglected. 

He did not know by what reasoning 
the mjriister of finance tried to make 
out that a provincial or national debt 
was a great benefit. If a debt of $8,- 
000,000 was a good thing, a debt of $10.- 
000.000 must be so much better, and «o 
they might go on illl they found they 
could borrow nothing at all. His per- 
sonal experience of the debt huslnoaa 
v us that the more you had of it the 
v/i rse it was for you. 

in concluding, Mr, Williams remarked 
sarcastically that whenever criticism levelled against the government or 
it.- policy, the answer, instead of being 
argumentative and logical, was always 
i'l ely to be a reference to the Inst elec- 
tions or the elections b<f.,r,-. This v. as 
on the principle adopted by the republic 
across the line, which whenever any im- 
pertinent interference with the business 
of irs neighbors was brought into ques- 
tion was wont to stand upon the Mon- 
roe doctrine. The general ei..tbniK and 
tbejr result constituted the city of re- 
fuge, for the Conservative party In Bri- 
tish Columbia. This was the Monroe 
Doctrine of British Columbia Conserva- 

Xr. Parson 

Mr. Parson thanked the member fur 
.Vi-v. castle for his kind remarks In re- 
t. fence to a number of government sup- 
pi rters who were seldom heard In the 
house. It was rather a honor to be com- 
pared to so gallant a body as the light 
brigade, and as for the great silent nu' 
jorlty the member has talked about, 
seme of the members w/>tn7l reach It In 
ii few years, and then they would line 
up perhaps with the member for New- 

Mr. Hawthornthwaite: "Shovelling 
coal!" (Laughter.) 

Mr. Parson continued that If some on 
his shle of the house talked as milch as 
the gentlemen opposite, the session 
would last six or eight months. bj*j! 
while they did not talk unceasingly they 
did their duty quite as conscientiously 
If not as ostentatiously as the gentle-

StrenuOUS trips in the performance of 
their official duties, chief among these 
being that occasioned by thfc coronation. 
f'-oui Which Jill had, he was glad to 

note, returned sound in both body and 

mind. In connection with the provin- 
cial representation in Wimlon at the cor- 
onaiion, he thought that at this centre, 
of Imperial affairs, the faet would he 
appreciated that this far away province 
had sent two able ministers as its 


Better Terms Mission 
The lied r Terms mission to Ottawa 
was also commented upon. the third 

member for Vanoouvar congratulating 

ihr three ministers participating, upon 
their reception at Ottawa and upon thfc 
results "achieve.!. The eai rying out of 
the promises given by the federal gov- 
ernment In thfe correspondence presented 
to parliament would, he frti confident, 
"add much to the importance and the 
prosperity of this great province of 
Which we are all so proud." 

The government was also entitled to 
congratulation upon the contents of the 
Taxation Commission's report, covering 
many points for which he had himself 

1 n agitating ever since becoming a 

member of the House — the reduction of 
the personal property tax, the proper 
levelling of the income tax, and gener..- 
alily the adjustment of taxation upon a 
fair and equitable principle. Reforms In 
these matters would bo materially ad- 
vanced through the appointment of this 
commission and the recommendations of 
Its report. 

"Thelr's was." he observed, "a singu- 
larly able report, on lines or thought 
which I greatly admire."

lated, too, upon the legislation of the 
session, one measure alone being of 
equal importance with many of other 
sessions, this being the Korests bill. This 
act would j.-o far toward stopping specu- 
lation in the provincial forest asset, 
while its fire prevention provisions were 
also highly Important and eminently; 
practical. The advantages of the bill in 
those sections assuring the conservation 
of hillside forestation were dealt with 
in connection with their relation to 
water conservation and regulation of 
the supply to the rivers, and various 
otlur worthy features of the new law 
reviewed commendatorily. 

Another matter upon which the House 
and the country were to be mutually 
congratulated was the announced deter- 
mination of the government to appoint 
a royal commission on agriculture, 
which commission would have Important 
duties to perform, and for which un- 
questionably the government would, as 
It had in the composition of other com- 
missions, secure the best men available. 
One important subject for this commis- 
sion to consider wodld be the means to 
be adopted for Increasing; the home pro- 
duction of the neeeshitUs of life, oper- 
ating Inevitably to cheapen the cost of 
living. The Indian reserves question 
might also be Investigated, there being 
nothing, in his opinion going further to- 
wards deterring settlement and develop- 
ment than having tlKese reserves tied 
up. Nothing too much could be done, or 
done too quickly, to increase the agricul- 
tural utilization of waste areas and the 
production of food products within the 

university Work 

And in connection with. agriculture he 
was extremely glad to see that it would 
be an Important phase of University 
work to deal with agricultural matters, 
educating the rising generation to the 
Importance of this Industry and teach- 
ing the science and delights of agricul- 
tural pursuits, as well an commercial 
subjects, which he was confident would 
also secure all due attention. Much 
had of' late beerl said and Written as 
to the Increased cost of living, both in 
lie Plater and elsewhere. He believed 
that the cost was af high here In British 
Columbia as anywhere. In the StateH, 
the Renublleans blftmed the' trusts; the 
PflfVton- ita nKcrlbert tho high eoat of 
necessities to the tariff, and the capital- 
ists claimed that It was due to the ex- 
them no specially Illuminative example 
In economical living. The cause In his 
own opinion was neither In the trusts

Another commission which ne would 
like to See «£ printed w*uM be a Muni- 

cipal Commission, surh a tribunal hav- j 
lug been shown to be. necessary by the 
munei'oun icttUesU made vt th« Muni- 
cipal Commtttee of the House for 
amendments to the present act. It 
would, he thoug-ht, be a good move on 
the government's part to appoint a eom- 
mlsalon to go Into all mutters touching 
this subject, with a view fo Securing a 
report upon which next session a new 
Municipal Act might be based chat 
would be a credit tc the Pro vine . He 
felt confident that, with the experience 
of other provinces as a guide, a model

tion he drew special attention to the 
excellence of the Ontario Act. 

Public Service Commission 
And still another commission foa 
which he had himself been agitating in 
a general way for some time wits a 
public service commission, Much had 
already been done along the lines 
which such a commission would fol- 
low, in the appointment of Inspectors 
of electrical energy, of factories, ol 
tramways, etc. These were along 
right !!n**«. Bui Iti "'"' st.j> the pre- 
mier of Manitoba had d4nc uiore for 
the good of the general public than 

in all these, when he established lie 
Manitoba public service commission, 
providing cheap and effectual means 
for the setilein. nt of any industrial 
dtsnutes which might arise. This com- 
mission would "Illl a. long felt want.' 
and his only regret war- that such a 
commtjisk'n hud not been created fur- 
ther west than Winnipeg. Hon. Mr. 
Itoge.-v and Hon, Mr. Ha/.en in New

j work in this connection, and while

cere hope liiMt ere long e-ach provin 
In the Dominion would have Its public 
service commission. Some had cons 
tended that this should be regarded as a 
federal matter. HIb own view 
however, that the more pow< could 
ho ke pt in the hands of each p rovince. 

the better for the province. 

Second Harrows Bridge 
11- was pleased to see in the estim- 
ates renewed provision for assistance 
in the building of the Second Narrows 
bridge, but this legitimate aid should 
be absolutely and necessarily made 
conditional upon the bridge being a 
public bridge. No private enterprise 
or company should receive this aid- 
public money should not be put Into 

this l.ri.lg-. unless it remained abSO- 

luteb controlled by the people, and in- 
trusted that this grant Would onfjr be 

made conditionally, as he had indicat- 
ed", upon public ownership. 

With respect to Deadman'a Island. 
lie had never ceased to protest against 

Its passing from ownership by tin peo- 
ple, and since 18 8A he bad losl bo op- 
portunity of contending as to the im- 
mense value of Us waterfrontage. The 
island, with about seventeen ucreas 
easily reciaimanl. by filling in with 
ballast from ships, would have an urea 
of about twenty-five acres, and he 
would like fco sec it administered by a 
joint board representative of the Do- 
minion, the province and Vancouver 
city, for industrial and other purposes 
A passage between it and tin- park 
might easily be dredged, and a fee* 
inanent structure comieet the island 
with the city, affording eXtensI 
wharfage, and making this an ideal 
shipping centre. 

Town Planning- 
Incidental to the advanced railwav 
policy of the government, he wished 
to emphasize the desirability of great

Victoria was peculiarly well situated; 

it wtes a beautiful city. But on the 
other hand, the people who laid out 
Vancouver were deserving of severest 
punishment, for they had been guilty 
of almost criminal negligence in con- 
nection with the necessities of tho fu- 
ture. In the laying out of townsltes, 
good streets of uniform width and well 
laid out, should be provided for; large 
school grounds should be set aside In 
each townsite, as well as park urea* 
and hospital grounds, the greatest care 
being exercised [n every way in lay-

such proper management as could be

This was not the view of the majority 
in the party, however, and the party 
was large enough for differences of 
opinion to exist within it, and for th

the public evidently shared the view 
of the government that the finis Cor

Many readers of the "Colonist"ar t probably making preparations to 
build during the coming spring. In making arrangements for the electrical 
wiring of your house, whether it be intended for your home or not, it is ad- 
visable that you plan to provide "outlets" for electrical appliances 
throughout the building. If your house is being built for a home, this 
will add to its convenience; if it i s built to sell, a -purchaser will view 
such provision with favor. 


such M lamps for the parlor and den. cooking equipment for the dining 
room and kitchen are rapidly coming into us,-. When you build, wiring 
and outlets for these appliances may be installed without trouble. W e 
tender this advice because householders are daily complaining to us of 
the lack of outlets in thtir Homes for electrical appliances.

preaching realization of a dream he 
had long cherished In connection with 
the building of the Hope Mountain 
road; he congratulated the government 
upon Its acceptance of this undertak- 
ing and only regretted that It had l>een 
unable before to see its way clear to 
carrying it forward. Kaslo's iplendlO 
prospects were next commmented upon 
ond the assured construction of thu 
Vancouver-Fort George railway ap- 
proved, this road being a half-step in 
the completion of connection between 
the coast and the great Peace river 
country. He also approved with a 
good heart the governments plans for 
the opening up of Vancouver island. 
What existent roads had dono for thu 
Island would, with those new avenues 
of communication be redone and the 
immense potentialities of the island be 
made boU'ix'vS of great prol.t. A s .or 
Island as well as Mainland projected 
roads, Mr. Maegowan concluded with 
tb<- observation: 

"If this province is anything like so 
rich as we oeilcvo n. w OS "• c«iw»> — • 
its opening up is well worth, the money 
to be spent and BJecopUUBco S* the lis. 
bilitk-s that will bo incurred In order 
to get it speedily flovel >ped." 

The member for Vancouver closed 
with a reference to tin- apparent early 
;,[>proad of an election* for which he 
assured the house that Vancouver would 

gresiuve policy tfl the government. 
.. "Whenever an election occur:;," said 
he. "We in Vancouver will be ready 
to do what we nave before. We are 
going to be in the bandwagon when 
the bugle sounds and give such a re- 
port to the country and our leader as 
we have given in the past. We are 
going to stand by the policy or tre- 
mendous progress and prosperity which 
can come only through large expendi- 
tures judiciously made." 

Mr. W. H. Hayward 

Mr. Hayward, who followed in what 
was probably the most effective speech 
he has ever made to tne local parlia- 
ment, prefatorily congratulated the 
province upon the excellent govern- 
ment that under the present adminis- 
tration it has enjoy. -d and. dealing with 
the criticism of the member for New- 
castle, hold that It was unfair for that 
member to reproach the ministerialists 
because they had not seen lit to make 
wordy reply to his speeches. Did that 
member ever say anything that was 
worth answering? Did not all his 
many 'speeches consist chiefly of 
picayune objections and little criti- 
cism of detail? The only criticism 
wmen ne uiuiani icgoiuw — -• — "-. 
of attention and which had been of- 
fered during the present session was 
that -the government was disposed to 
override the prerogatives of the peo- 
ple and adopt too much legislation cen- 
tralizing power in its own hands. The 
member for Newcastle had cited the 
Municipal Incorporation bill in this 
connection, yet this had not been a 
measure initiated by the government, 
but one brought forward by the attor- 
ney general at the request and in the 
interest of the people themselves, who 
realized the absolute necessity of plac- 
ing certain conditions In letters patent, 
for the protection of public interest 
and the avoidance of unnecessary ex- 
pense. This was a fair sample of the 
opposition criticism as voiced by the 
member for Newcastle; it was a great 
hip bubble and nothing more. Never 
did it approach constructive criticism. 
Statue of Indian Kewrvei 

Proceeding, the member for Cow- 
ichan took occasion to offer a few 
practical Buggestiona for government 
consideration, the first of these being 
with respect to the status of Indian 
reserves, the present situation with 
respect to these being described as 
a v*mi aortnna deterrent to the deslr- 
able"aevelopment of British Columbia. 
Large areas of our best lands were 
held waste and undeveloped, and If 
anything could be done by purchase 
or other arrangement with the Indians 
to secure the utilization of these lands. 
It should be done and done quickly. It 
might be possible and beneficial for 
all to take over the lands In many 
pl&caa now set aside as reserves and 
give the Indians Ueu lands ojong the 
coast more suited to their habits of 
life and their methods of making a 

Another matter to which the gov- 
ernment should give consideration was 
that of making more generous provis- 
ion under which municipalities might 
obtain a more equitable share of the 
Increasing provincial- revenues, the 
sources of income of the municipal- 
ities being under present conditions 
Insufficient to enable them to make 
adequate provision for their modern 
necessities and for desirable growth 
and facilities of civilization. He would 
like to see the government consider 
some ""chem* for triving to the munici- 
palities Better Terms, as under a per 
capita grant to each municipality ac- 
cording to its population, in manner 
much the same as the province Itself 
Is seeking Better Terms from the Do- 
minion. It was true that the prov- 
ince had been very generous in the 
making "f special allowances to the 
municipalities for hospitals, etc., but 
the time was coming when this whole 
question would have to be faced end 
an arrangement adopted more In equity 
to the municipalities. 

OrUntata and *■«* 

~._ YTsL—A. tt*»J 

Another matter demanding consider- 
ation was that of the ownership of 
lands by Orientals. It certainly was 
a penny wise and pound foolish pol- 
icy, a very contradictory one, for Brit- 
ish Columbians to say that they want- 
ed no Orientals within their borders, 
and at the same time to permit these. 
n«opie in a measure to become part of 
our own body politic by allowing" therd 
to purchase land. When this matter 
had tMMMlsufSeite* before he had nn-

that It was one that should be taken

take them in; a passing Impression 
will be created. Perhaps you think 
that is the end of it; but there is where 
you are mistaken. These apparently 
fleeting impressions endure. How or 
where they endure possibly no one 
knows. Every ^newspaper man of long 
experience will tell you this. He has seen 
the fruit of his labors over and OV«V

he never tells. We are often assured 
that newspapers no longer influence 
public opinion. Likewise we are told 
that public speakers no longer have 
any effect. There are many ministers 
of the Gospel who lament that they 
cannot see. much result from their la- 
bors. But something influences pub- 
lic opinion, and if It Is not those who 

hat three mid * tUtft millions of people,

public generally, if he is able to appre- 
ciate the spirit of this western country 
and can discharge his responsible duties 
in harmony therewith, so far as that 
spirit is not Inconsistent with the prin- 
ciples of the Christian religion. One 
thing he cannot learn too soon, namely, 
that along the Pacific Coast there is a 
demarcation between "church people" 
and the rest of the community such as 
Is not admitted, if it exists, in eastern 
communities. By "church people" we 
do not mean those affiliated with any 
special denomination, but those who 
openly identify themselves with religi- 
ous life in any form. He will soon learn. 
IT his friends speak frankly to him, that 

his demarcation exists and fin 

iression In political and municip 
One of his efforts ought to be to dis- 
cover how it can be obliterated, and we 
may add that in order to Insure 
such a result being accomplished 
tho church must go to the people 
as well as the people must go 
to the church. The people of the 
are not more Irreligious than others; 
tbey are only more, frank and open. The 
num. who has crossed a continent and 
perhaps an ocean as well, to make hla 
home here, is a man of practical energy 
and character, and the religion that ap- 
peals to him must be a practical rell- 
Klon. Mysteries do not appeal to him. 
If he asks' for bread and is given a 
atone, he la not likely to ask again. 
We can conceive of no greater work 

... wH4r\h a mnn ran rlnvotR his t&lcnts 

and opportunities than to an effort to 
bring into harmony the forceful, aggres- 
sive spirit of the West aOd the prin- 
ciples of which Christianity is the ex- 
ponent. We can conceive of no greater 
reward than that which comes from a 
consciousness that one has contributed 
even in some slight degree to the 
achievement of such a result. The cere- 
monial of yesterday was an Impressive 
one, perhaps the most impressive eccles- 
iastical ceremony ever Witnessed in this 
city; but may we tell our new fellow- 
eltizen of another ceremony, not eccles- 
• iii!ii : which Victoria witnessed. It 
.as an occasion of national mourning, 
and thousands of citizens gathered be- 
fore the Parliament. Building and join- 
r.l in prayer and song in a service in 
which a Kahbl of ihc oldest of religions 
fnk part, In which a representative of 
the >--reat Churoh of Rome, one of the 
great Church of England and others rep- 
resenting all the great branches of Pro- 
t. t tantism participated. Many wiil re- 
m< mbcr how in silence the thousands 
bowed their heads while the Rabbi led 
in prayer. All religious differences 
were for the time as if they never had 
in en. "Church people" and non-church 
people ptood side by side, all alike humbl- 
eii by the thought of the hour. The 
spirit which swept over that vast gath- 
ering is a; much the spirit of the West, 
a:< is the energy that builds new cities 
in the wilderness, or have long lines 
of steel through mountain fastnesses. 
May it be given to the new Bishop of 
Columbia to discover how the organisa- 
tion of which he ie the local head iv.riv 
get Itself Into full sympathy with this 
spirit, to the end that this community, 
which looks out upon the greatest of the 
oceans, soon to be the scene of man- 
kind'* greatest activities, may be the 
he-Tie of good citizens, who will demon- 
strate in their individual and communal 
life that Christianity asks nothing of 
men that will prevent them from making 
the best of their material advantages, 
but on the contrary will add something 
to the happiness to be derived from 

or pen, what is it'.' An incident In 
the history of an eastern province 
comes to mind. There was a certain 
public man, who had taken part in 
the struggle for Responsible Groverh- 
rrsent, ar.d whose despatches to the 
Home government had found a reflec- 
tion In the instructions sent out from 
the Colonial Office. Like some other 
men have done, he remained In pub- 
lic life a little too long, and ha went 
down to soaeyrhat is-"' 

reply to a severe attack 
him in the legislature of 
which he had once been the leader, 
he said: "Honorable gentlemen may 
deprive me of office; they may seek to 
destroy ray reputation; but they can 
never take from me the consciousness 
that I have left the Impress of my 
mind upon the institutions of my coun- 
try";" At these words the House broke 
into a storm of applause, ami tin- 
speaker took his seat Those who re- 
call the Confederation campaign in 
Nova Scotia will remember the hostil- 
ity of that Tribune of the People, Jo- 
seph Howe. But Howe In vain attack- 
ed the proposed union, and the reason 
was that In years then gone by he 
had built up a public opinion by bia 
strong imperial sentiment* Uttered 
with all the strength of his eloquence. 
What led to the abolition of slavery 
in the United States? It was Har- 
riet Beecher Stowe's immortal work, 
"Uncle Tom's Cabin," a story' that few . 
persons would have patience to read 
today. A clever Liberal politician in ! 
Ontario said that it Was not Mr. Bor- I 
den that carried The last Dominion 
election, but "the fellow that wrote 
Rule Britannia." Have you not no- 
ticed how, like a lire in dry grass, an 
idea will sweep over the country? The 
exjdnnation of it Is that public opinion 
has been already formed and only 
needed some one to "light the match." 
But you may say that you yourself 
have found yourself caught In the cur- 
rent of public opinion, which wan 
really after all only your opinion, ,il- 
though you cannot remember that you 
had ever formed it. That is true, and 
that is the mysterious part of the 
whole formative process. The hasty 
impression that your mind received 
pernaps a dozen years ago nas re- 
mained. You have a sub-conscious- 
ness, although you may refuse to be- 
lieve it, and it records mental impres- 
sions, which, like the impressions on 
a phonographic disc, cannot be detect- 
ed even with a magnifying glass, but 
they are there just the .same anil only 
need the application of an adequate 
moans to enable them to express them-

to lack of : 

members, but to the very excellent work 
done by the contm ■•■ One or ir.?. 

most experienced of the parliamentary 
solicitors said the other day that the 
change in the manner in which the 'com- 
mitters carry on their work is very re- 
markable. Formerly it was done In a 
perfunctory sort of way; now it Is 
done thoroughly and the task of a soli- 
citor in charge of a hill is often one of 
no slight importance and difficulty. 

The enemy of Victoria within her 
gates will find that the Seymour Nar- 
rows agitation has only reached its final 
and successful stage. 

The editor of a certain London week- 
ly paper says that ho cannot read 
Dickens, for the wit of that great au- 
thor is forced. If the edttor's idea of

to observe such a rar.'.c oxfttbtttos of D ad 
as that displayed in a local con- 
temporary yesterday In its rsferem ee 
to the Budget Speech. There is such 8 
thing as deceney in journalise 
though the paper referred to does not 
seem to know It. 

Crocuses, snowdrops, daisies, violets 
are blooming In the gardens. In the 
"sheltered places in the fields the lilies 
and lady-slippers arc opening. Th. wild 
purrkntS era glowing in their pink dress. 
There are pussy willows everywhere. 
The graas is growing strongly and there 
Is a feeling In the air that tells of the 
coming of spring, if indeed It is not 
already here. It Is good to live In a 
land like Lid.-. It Is worth something 
just to be aliv< in the glorious sunshine.

A good many thousand people will 
read the Colonist this morning, and 
perhaps the majority of them will not 
bo sfblo to tell you tomorrow morning 

We had supposed they were extinct 
like the Dodo, but there is one of them 
left. He was on the Vancouver boat the 
other day, this sad and solitary sur- 
vivor of the species known as Pessimls- 
tlcus Vlctorlensls, once quite common 
around these parts. Not only was he 
alive, but he had what is commonly 
kn f wn as a "grouch." To an anxious 
seeker after knowledge, he Imparted the 
information that "Victoria is not and 
never will be 'anything- but a residential 
city," and the aforesaid seeker was im 
pvessed with the probability that, the 
statement must be true, for, as 1s well 
krewn, the Pessimlsticus Victoriensis is 
usually a respectable-looking bird with 
an owl-like note in its croak. Where 
this creature hfdes Itself when in this 
burg we do not know. It certainly does 
not move around much, for diligent In- 
quiry has failed to locate it; but there 
must be such a creature, for a Van- 
couver man said he saw it, and talked 
with it, and perish the thought that a 
Vancouver man could over say anything 
that was not true about Victoria. 

Only a residential city indecdl The 
chief city of an Island larger than m.-.ny 
of the States of the American Union and 
abounding in wealth greater than Is con- 
tained in any similar area in the world. 
Do you realize that Vancouver Island is 
nearly four times as large as the State 
of Connecticut, seven times as large as 
the State of Delaware, twelve times as 
large as Rhods Island, and twice as 
Isfge, nearly, as either Massachusetts. 
New Hampshire or New Jersey? Do 
you realize that Vancouver Island has 
greater natural wealth In sight than all 
these states together aver had? Do yon 
realise that the smallest of these states, 
the one tnat ts ons-twelfth the area of 
Vancouver Island, has a population of 
mora than half a million, and that Mas- 
••aehusftttfl with half the Island's area 

The statement has been made that the 
Board of Trade is In receipt of Informa- 
tion concern!!!- the proposed harbor im- 
provements, and we have ••"• " asked by 
several persons as to the nature of the 
information. We are unable to say, for 
we have not been taken into th* Board's 
confidence on the subject. We may add 
that there is a very gene: al opinion in 
the city that, inasmuch as the Board 
is in such matters aeting In a quasi- 
pubiir Capacity, when it la In possession 
of any information of the nature men- 
tioned it should be promptly given out, 
unless there ««xlst special reasons for 
treating it as confidential; 

Through a clerical error In our classi- 
fication of the estimated revenue the 
amount anticipated from succession 
duties, probate fees, registry fees and 
fees under the Joint Stock Companies 
Act was stated at $165,000. This was 
really the amount of the last 
item. The anticipated revenue from 
these four sources is $895,000. In the 
same summary the figures are transposed 
in the amount receivable from the Dom- 
inion government, $173,780 being print- 
ed for $713,780. These errors involved 
a further error In the miscellaneous 
receipts, which should have been stated 
at $1,477,050 instead of $2,247,050. The 
errors do not alter the total of the an- 
ticipated revenue, but only afreet the 
elasKiflcatlon of It. 

Mr. Lloyd George is very hopeful of 
the success of the woman suffrage move- 
ment in England next year. His state- 
ment that the measure will be adopted, 
if it is brought forward as an amend- 
ment to tho government franchise Skill, 
Is interesting as throwing a side light 
upon parliamentary government. Neither 
of the. great political parties In the 
United Kingdom is a unit on this ques- 
tlrn, and the Cabinet itself is divided, 
Mr. Asqulth, the Prime Minister, being>«t>cl to H Nevertheless the question 
has been left an open one. and when the 
amendment is moved party ties will be 
forgotten. If the measure is carried, as 
I* seems likely to be. Mr. Asqulth, if 
he IS then Prime Minister, wiii recom- 
mend His Majesty to give his assent. 
This in a demonstration of the elasti- 
city of the British parliamentary sys- 
tem for which tt Is doubtful if any pee- 
csident «*n Ih> clt»d.

or Honors 

England Intends to win the next Olym- 
pic games. Preparations for the. ttam 
are now well under way, and in order 
to be well acquainted with the battle- 
ground. Rev. S. J. DeCourcy La-ffin, sec- 
retary of the British Olympic Council. 
paid a visit to Stockholm recently. 

Upon his arrival he Baid that in all 
probability England would send a tea.m 
of nearly 300 men, having a full entry 
jr. au tii« ev«nts. He believes England 
will beat America. 

He said that forty nations would be 
represented this time, and the stadium, 
be thought, would be very artistic wlusft 
complete, It .will be smaller than the 


one at London, a fact which will ensure 
a better view of the Held events. 

Nat Perry of the Dondon A. C. will 
have the lob of building the track, and 
It will be as fast as -has ever been seen 
at any of the Olympic gatherings. The 
stadium will not be finished till about 
June 1. but there is ground near which 
can be used for training purpoeer- by 
the visitors. 

According to the official organ of the* 
International Olympic committee, th* 
standard programme for all tutor*; 
games will not be arranged till the

Drieet In Torty Years— In a telegraw 
received at this office from Mr. S. 
, , ,, .. ,, ,,,. | , : ,, k.i-., who to wintering 
.,, }'•,.,,, l; .,!.;.■.-. thai B^ntli man remaYRH 
that 'agriculturists there are very much 
disturbed at the 1 dryness of the season. 
which has been unparalleled for forty 
vears, and that rain is badly needed. 
The bright sunshine, however, suits its 
winter visitors admirably. He adds that 
Mr. Alexander McDermott, with Mrs. 
McDermott and their son, are spending 
a few days at Paso Roblcs before pro- 
ceeding southwards. 

Bust In Sontb— Mr. H. Stadhagen. in 
a letter to the secretory of the Vancou- 
ver island Development League, written 
from Los Angtles, reports that during 
the last four months there, •>!.!>• two 
days rain has been experienced with the 
result that the alkali d««rt has been un- 
bearable. After a brief visit to Han 
Diego at the beginning of March he 
hope's to return to "beautiful Victoria."

enough. He desires a post here and in 
addition to his business" experience 
speaks both French and Spanish. 

Road superintendents leave — The 
large number of delegates who have 
been in Victoria from various districts 
of tho province in attendance at the 
first annual convention .of road super- 
intendents, left for their homes yester- 
day, well pleased with what was accom- 
plished during their visit. The visitors 
from the more remote districts were 
much impress, d with the salubrity of 
the climate of Victoria, aa during the 
period of th-ilr StM the most delightful 
weather prevailed. This should result 
in a good advertisement for the capital 
city, inasmuch as at many of the points 
to which tne arit-sates ;.».» 
thty will find winter conditions still 
obtaining on their arrival home. 

Yorkshire Gathering — The Yorkshire 
annual gathering was held at the A. O. 
l\ \V. on l'riday evening, and was quite 
a brilliant affair. About 300 were 
present, besides in the earlier part of 
the evening a large numoer of children, 
the youngsters had a rattling good time, 
,,:„! when they were "puttcn te bed."' the 
fun began for the oldsters. The pro- 
lamine was varied, consisting of ■songs, 
recitations, with dances interspersed; 
and a recherche supper. For those who 
did BOI dance card tables were provided 
and pretty and suitable prizes were 
donated by members. The success of 
the function is due to the whole-hearted 
support giVell In true Yorkshire style 
by the p* mier* in general. The. ladies 
In particular exerted themselves to the 
utmost. And. "if tha does owt for nowt, 
do it for thlsen." 

Excellent Moving Pictures— The mov- 
ing pictures at the Victoria which con- 
gist exclusively or English films and 
subjects, Is an entertainment of tho 
very highest type in that class of shows. 
The pictures are clear and distinct, and 
there Is absolutely nothing vulgar about < 
them. There is plenty to laugh at, but 
the fun is not coarse or suggestive. It 
is only funny. The more serious films 
are very admlrahle. Perhaps there has 
nevor been a finer one shown in the 
city than that Illustrating Tennyson's 
"Come Into the r.arden, Maud." The 
action in this is su>.-rb. It Is under- 
stood that the Overseas Club is respon- 
sible for the presence of this exhibition 
In Victoria, and the fact Is very much 
to th« credit of that organization. The 
pictures will be shown again today and 
are worthy of the attention of every 
one. They can be unreservedly recom- 
mended to young and old alike.

made by the choirmaster, Mr. J. O.

behalf of the choir the appreciation the 
members had of Mr. Morrison personally 
and of his services as a soloist and

inimical tq good health, good laws and 
good government The best policy for

the congestion of our cities and plac- 
ing the. niasu of the population on the 
land. Having all thin In view and hav- 
ing regard for the success that Is being 
attained, there Is not a member In this 
House who In honesty will not agree 
that this policy is winning *>uch hearty 
support front the people throughout the 
province, that even my honorable friend 
from Alberni, deep In his heart, cannot 
but seriously doubt whether he will n» 
able to occupy a seat on the. floor Of 
this House next session.' 1 
Mi. Jackson 
Mr. Jackson, Continuing the debate, 
remarked that little had been heard In 
the past as to the horticultural Wlfl 
agricultural possibilities of the dis- 
trict which he has the honor to repre- 
sent. This might be accounted for by 
reason of the lack of transportation 
facilities up to date existing. With the 
construction of the Kettle River Valley 
railway to the Coast, however, the 
Greenwood district would be brought 
into direct contact with both the cast 
and the west, thus insuring through 
travel Which must of necessity I xei I 
a direct and benefleiwi Influence on 
settlement and development; 

"I can assure you, Mr. Speaker, 1 ' he 
pursued, "that notwithstanding the dif- 
ficulties under Which we have labored, 
di". ciopment has taken pWt.ce with us, 
and we have In our district a large area 

planted in fru>> 4Hstam 

we hope and expect to rival the famoua 
Creston Valley, so much spoken of by 
my friend the member for Ynilr.

ductive of much beneficial progress. 

Another matter to be considered along 
the same line was this, that no matter 
what education you have, or what abil- 
ity as a farmer you possess, one or 
two things are still essential to suc- 
cess: Transportation facilities, In the 
first place, w utial. And where 

whs there a Liberal or a Socialist who 
say that the government was not 
doing good work in the provision of 
these facilities? This government 
would certainly go down to posterity 
as responsible for an exceedingly pro- 
gresoivo policy along railroad construc- 
tion lines, and ha felt confident that tho

atructlon by means or bond guarantees 
would be cordially supported by the 
of the province whenever op- 
portunity was afforded. 

Doing Its Duty 
Then, having got the railways, high- 
ways and byways were equally ri-i|iiired 
to enable the farmers to reach the rail- 
ways with their produce. And was not 
the government also doing its full duty 
in this When be first be- 

came a member of the House, the total 
annual expenditure on public works was 
less than half a million! now It 
amounted to eight and a half millions. 
Tills was significant testimony to 
fact that the government was thorough- 
ly impressed with the necessity of 
opening up the country by moans of 
roads, trails, bridges, etc., and under 
the present Minister of Public Works 
the province had every assurance that 
it was getting and would continue to 
get a dollar's worth of value for every 
dollar expended. 

Then again, what was the government 
doing to get and keep the people on the 
land? Take the forestry policy as Il- 
lustrative: He had recently visited Ta- 
corna by requ_»1 of the government to 
pate in at: th. groat 

immigration convention as representa- 
1 . 1 : : ; . Columbia and when he 

had told that convention of how Brit- 
ish Columbia was moving on 
lines, tho: • ai: 

tounded when the details were laid be- 
fore them of tho conservation policy 
on this side of the border with 1 

to both our timbered laud and "" r 
water. They ■••.-'•■• astonished. to learn 
thai under our system of administra- 
tion we were not selling our timber 
lands outright but getting rental upon 
them year by year n [ding to our 

capital In Hie final outcome, 
the government, despite an the advan- 
tages that it whs giving to settlors, 
found It possible from time to time to 
decrease taxation pharges; 

Continuing, Mr. H iyiward gave a lucid 
explanation of the provincial lands 
policy, showing its beneficial Influence 
Upon the devrlnpme:,! of toe country 
and wherein It safeguarded the heri- 
tage of in people in preventing the 
speculator or investor from reaping the 

advantage of the unearned increment. 
WorK on surveys 

Proceeding, the member tor t'owichan 
showed :>...v idvantagoousij money is 
being speni for surveys, in brder that

prospective aettlars n-. to lands bv«h-

through the working out o| u,se Con- 
servative policy, than Immediate pro- 
vision v.i: made for the survey of wild 
lands. Information In connection with 

these would soon be available. 

And more thnn this, the government 
now proposed to appoint a royal com- 
mission to Investigate |U«I how then 

lands might besl j>e cleared, irrigated 

and generally (1 tilized. It would also 
be In order for this commission to find 
out how we may best take care of the

ber, vegetation, offals, etc., by the 
utilization of such by-pruduoto an tur- 
pentine, acetic acid, fish guano, etc.. 
making the soil more fertile and giving 
employment In the mnnut'aoture of by- 
products to hundreds and thousands of

conclusion, "this government hae been

conditions at present prevailing in tho

for an early revival of the mining in- 

Mr. Jackson closed with graceful com- 
piinients to 1 in- inmiice minister upon hi^ 
excellent budget speech and to the min- 
ister of works upon the generous man^ 
ner In which lie had treated the con- 
stituency of Greenwood. 

Mr. H. C. Brewster 

Mr. Brewster said that after loafing 
for v. "a house had now come to 

the place where the government was 

putting on the high stieed gear. 1 

house had two sessions on Friday, one 
of which extended into the morning, and 
under such • s 11 was Impos 
slide for him to make anything like an 
adequate criticism of such an important 
subject as the budget, in such a time. 
It. was his sixth session in the house, 
and from his position had undoubtedly 
been the most arduous. The premier ( 

d not seen lit to allow his resolutions seconded by a supporter of the 
government, end he had to enlist the 
good offices of the member for New- 
castle. That gentleman had told him 
frankly that he did not agree with his 
resolutions, and if he spoke on them he 
would probably slate him harder than 
the government, but that he would si en 
them in order that they might get be- 
fore the house. 

Mr. Brewster then passed In review 
the various resolutions which the gov- 
ernment had brought down, saying that 
they seemed all to be framed with a 
view to an approaching election, and 
now In the dying days of the session 
the members were asked to pass Impor- 
tant legislation without ebing given an 
opportunity, to consider it. In dealing 
, the estimates, he could not under- 
stand bOW it was thfct, allowing for 
great expansion In many ways, the es- 
for the civil service, had In- 
i.sed fourfold. In other words just 
before an election the government was 

Ittlng money into the province that 

.,; never, before been considered ne- 
cessary. Taxes owing by large railway 
corporations were compounded In this 
legislation, and more and more business 
, being taken out of the hands of 
members and placed in those of the 

. .^ -. .. . _~ — .«rt^.irt-cniinr-i] Tn tile. 

UCIItrii'1 in -r." ' • 

meantime t' lR supporters of the govern- 
ment sat back as much as to say, 'As 
long as we get good fat appropriations 
for our districts It Is all right.' They 
had public works estimated to cost bo 
much, and yet when the results came 
before the hOUBe, it was found they had 
,.-.., twice or treble the amount origin- 
ally bargained for. 

ll in. Mr. McPhllllps: "What about the 
transcontinental railway?"

The Sporting World 


II for mil 

Hal Beasley, 100 and 220; T, 

Gallon, 440 and Half Mile; 
and John -F, Sweeney will 
Compete for Olympic Squad 

"United States challenges for Davis 
cup. (Signed) Wrenn, President." 

It was voted at the annual meeting 
of the U. 6. National Lawn Tennis 
Association, on Keb. 9, to challenge for 
the Davis cup for 1912, provided In the 
Judgment of the executive a team could 
be 'mustered properly. 

At this early date, said President 
Wrenn today, "U Is impossible to tell 
whether such a team cab be formed, 
but since the regulations governing 
Davis cup competitions require that all 
challenges must be received- not later 
than the first Monday In March, tod&y'B 
formal challenge was dispatched so that 
we may bu in a position to send a team 
later, if that is possible. 


Three sterling athletes whoae per- 
formances in the past have more than 
proved their worth in no uncertain 
manner, will go forth from this city 
in May in u.uest of a place on the Can- 
adian Olympic team and from this on 
their work on their work on the track 
will be watched with the keenest in- 
terest. They are. Hal Beasley, the 
British Columbia 100-yard and 220 
champion; John P. Sweeney, the mile 
British C'~l"timvi?. ""^.rr.TJjcr:. 2-HC _ -l.< 
Gallon, provincial champion in the 
(fU&Ttsr mils. 

It is a credit to this city to be proud 
ossesaor u£ three .such truck men. All 
three have commenced training twice 
weekly ami are determined the best In 
them will be forthcoming when the 
times e, lines . One fact though, to that 
a trainer should be secured for the 
boys, whose aspirations are so gv 
and "while the lads themselves are keen 
upon engaging a competent track in- 
structor, any added help from the bus- 
iness men of the city would be appre- 
ciated In this particular. 

The three young men are members of 
the James Bay Athletic club, uml.-r 
whose colors they will no doubt run. 
If they run true to rorm, all three 
should go east to Montreal for the final 
trials In June. And mere, though ap- 
pearing Bgainst the best Canadians, 
their chance for success is as rosy as 
that of any other athtete. 
Big Meet Hare 

The James Bay club is to bold a 
Inter-city track meet here early in May 
to which all runner., Jumpers, etc., 
are to be invited, arm which will give 
a preliminary idea of what is to be 

....^-.+ fl 3 -,* 4.1.,". afhl^.n* r*r rh* nrnv- 

Ince at the British Columbia Olympic 
trials later on in the month. Hal Beas- 
ley is behind this movement, which is 
a good one. Too many sprinters can- 
not be induced to come, and too many 
of such meets cannot be held. Cor 
that is what is necessary If the best 
are to be weeded out. With no undue 
favoritism it has been the work of Hal 
Beasley alone that has been the life 
of track athletics In ' this city in the 
last few years. He has wrought won- 
ders for the game and inspired doz- 
ens of lads to get out on the track and 
do their best. 

Beasley's Beoord 

Of the three local lads, Beasley's 
career is most brilliant. Ever since he 
first set foot on a track in Vancouver 
in l&OJi under the direction of Geo. 
Paris, h« has made records. In his 
first year in junior competition he 
broke the Canadian indoor high Jump 
record, clearing 5 feet 1 lncn, a marK 
which has possibly not been beaten 
since. In the same year he won the 
provincial mile championship (Junior) , 
In 5.10 min. and also cleaned up in the 
100 yards In 11 seconds and the 220 in 
25 seconds. Another wonderful per- 
formance of his in the Junior ranks 
was jumping 18 feet in the broad jump 
in the same year for the title of the 
province. At that time Hal was a res- 
ident of Vancouver. He began his 
career with the Vancouver Athletic 
club and concluded "his work in the 
Terminal city with tne Y. M. C. A. 

Beasley equalled another world's 
Tecord when a junior in the one hundred 
yards event In 1910 for the first fifty 
yards, covering the initial half of the 
race in the phenomenal time of 5 1-5 
seconds, which is a wonderful showing 
for a junior. In the same year Beasley 
turned senior and defeated McConnel 
at a big Indoor meet at Vancouver. 

The latter mentioned sprinter .is the 
local OW3. hundred yardsman's greatest 
rival for a place to go east. He likewise 
Is training hard for the coming meets, 
although Beasley has beat him on sev- 
eral occasions. There la hardly an- 
other runner in the province to com- 
pare with these two lads, and the races 
up until the present between McCon- 
nel and Beasley have alway» been close 
with llttie to choose between them, 
llal, however, on his records should 
be able to slip one over on the Vancou- 
ver lad. * 

Was Canadian Champion' 

It was In 1910 that Beasley went 
along with Brook Valo to the Cana- 
dian championships as a Junior, where 
he cleaned up everything In sight, i.e., 
the 100 in 10 1-2 sec. the i!20 In 24 sec, 
and the Quarter In 5* sec, and con- 
cluded with taking the broad jump 
with a mark of 19 feet. 

Beasley's tlrst year tn senior com- 
pany was aa successful as his Junior 
years. He won the to» and 220 cham- 
pionships from B. Vaio and S. Wlnsby 
of thla city in Jig time. He has never 
looked like a loser in any of his events. 
Only once L«a be been forced to take 
a iwcond placa, and that was at the 
Pactflo Coast championships at Astor- 
ia Hurt fa)I. But (nla season, he ex- 
pects to make the best showing of his 
career and bla sole ambition is to make 
the Olympic team. Hla many friends, 
and likewise thoae of OaMon and 
Sweeney, will do their beat to see that 
all poea lble la done for the b oys.

teams have yet two games to play one 
at the local arena, and one at Van- 
■ r, and It Is anticipated by many, 
and hoped by all, that the boys in 
Stripes will yet be able to hand it to the 
Royals, l'.v.n though Victoria has drop- 
ped to tli- nt of the Pacific Coast

On Tuesday night n*-xt, Vancouver is 
- hedu-led to play the Capitals in this 
City, and then it is that the homesters 
expect to "come back," and lessen the 
space between, them and the league lead- 
ers. When it is remembered' that a week 
ago. the Terminals won easily from 
Westminster, by seven goals, there is 
every reason to think that Tuesday's 
g.tme at the local arena, will be just as 
Interesting as the previous matches 
which local fans have had the pleasure 
Of Witnessing since the inauguration of 
hockey "" the coast. There is satisfac- 
tion in knowing that the same, "jink" 
whloh is apparently with the locals 
whenever they play Westminster, does 
not work to such advantage when the 
Terminals are the opponents, and this 
should help some. According to Ter- 
minal City writers. tho Vancouver aggre- 
gation is steadily improving, and they 
look to this team to do some surprising 
work during the next few weeks. The 
f.u-t remains though that, however, fa-st 
t'i< Malnlanders are, they find it a diffi- 
cult matter to break the combination 
rushes of the locals, which is their real 
forte. If ever a team worked hard for 
a game, the Capitals should and un- 
doubtedly will work their hardest for 
victory on Tuesday night. On this game 
will depend largely their chances for thn 
Peterson cup, and to this end a real 
battle royal is anticipated. Defeat on- 
Tuesday night would place the locals 
In a position from which they would

Had the Native Sons shown any kind 
of accuracy In shouting goals, they 
could have won hands down. It was 
the opposing t'orwaro line that was 
most aggressive in the BOCOnd half, 
when they seemed to Ket working bet- 
ter together. Messrs. Gale, rilkingtnu 
and DOUglas caused many anxious mo- 
ments for the Native Sum-' back divis- 
ion in the Anal period. Robertson, the 
goalkeeper, gave a pretty exhibition of

tie kn-ked out Of danger with several 
Old Countrymen bearing down UOOl 

him. This work probably drev defwn 

more applause than anything of th* 

• t ternoon. 

Opening- Half 

The Old Countrymen took the kick- 
off, which was neatly blocked and 
taken rigiu up to their goal by Johnny 
Pedi U at centre, who has not played 
so well this season. Johnny was the 
one home-born forward that was on 
his mettle and who handled himself 
well at all times. The local lads even 
at this early stage began shooting and 
throe shots, one by McCarter, a second 
by Peden and a third which was head- 
ed by TuUv all went amiss. Oakers 
got rid of some good passing in the 
nrst half, which he semed to lose as 
the game wore on. But the English- 

*_•__■* *_______"• ehoMoco tfvii t*i\f\ mi*Hp 

good use of them, which only brought 
out the defensive merits of Bob Whyte 
,,ui labJ iter, who were running their 
legs off yesterday in order to uphold 
the record of the Native Sons. Gaie 
passed to Sherrett once, who sent an 
easy shot Into Kubertsun. hut In this 
case the ball was traveling fast and 
Sherett had hardly time to catch up 
with it. 

Then came the penalty. atUr which 
the play ding-donged along until the 
close of the period. 

In the second hulf. the Old Country- 
men surely did show more uggresalve- 
nc 8B than In tin. llrst half and looked 
dangerous many , times. The Native 
Anns' forward line wag handling the 
ball equally as much but with marked 
Inability to land it at the scoring sta- 

Both trams were well balanced ana 
all th- „ played their positions han- 
dily. The Native Sons' forward line 
was iniiiue Baker, who wn« unanls t= 
play, .McCarter, though, made a good 
substitute. Jo« Dekera and Totty did 
some perfect oora,binatlon work in the 

llrst half. Oouglas was working hard 
for the winners, as well as 1'inklng- 
lun. Qale, Vuuson and Sherrett. l'OU- 
n,,n ftlldeavored to score several tmo^. 
but was guilty of the off-side rule in 
front or the k»;u several times. 

Bob Whyte'ti sure, steady kicking and 
,!,,. work of an tin- backs showed class. 
tlymors, Junes and Grennalgh gave 
them an equal run on the other end Ol 

ii... held, in fact aono of the boys 
sveVe not working and all did their best 
from the sounu of the first whistle. 

Stan Okell was not on deck and Pat- 
ersun filled In for the Old Countrymen.

The Induction

presence of a -large congregation. 1 
bishop arrived at the north sloor 
the cathedral shortly after 5 o'clock BJ 
knocked for admission. The dean, * 
with the primate and the rest 
clergy, were gathered at the foot of 
the msie, inquired ""« ■ • -• - 

which the bishop responded: "The lord 
ho© of Columbia, Who prays the 
u of iiis cathedral to enthrone him." 
The door was thereupon opened by 
the dean, and the b! [ WW

which the Doxologv was sung with 
great heartiness, and the usual form of

A short address was given by his 
the Archbishop of Kupertsland. 
lie said: . 

My dour Christian Friends — Before 
pronouncing the benediction, 1 desire 
to say a very few words bearing on 
the events of this morning and till* 
afternoon. They have not been merely 
ecclesiastical functions of pomp and 
circumstance, but they are events 
which should mark a most (mpottant 
epoch in the history of the church on 
this island. 

This morning, in solemn service, we 
SSi apart our beloved brother to the 
sacred, boly and responsible office of a 
Bishop in the Church of God. To all of 
Us this service spoke with significant 
,nd solemn voice. To our brother it 
said. "You are consecrated, set apart, 
that is, to a high and holy office. The 
imposition of hands at your ordination 
to the Diaeonate and Priesthood was 
solemn, and brought with indefinite du- 
ties and grave responsibilities. The 
Imposition of hands nt consecration 
brings larger duties and much graver 
responsibilities." If the thought of 
those duties and responsibilities draws 
from you the question, "Who is suffi- 
cient for these things," a loyal looking 
upward In faith to the great head of 
the church, will bring back the assur- 
ing answer, "My grace is siifftrtent for 
yon." Hosting on the assurance that 
•our sufficiency is of Cod," let me say

Carborundum Stones 

Wc have just received a new lot of these stones, 
they are made of Carhorundutn. the most mar- 
velous ahrasive the world has ever known. It is 
as hard and as sharp as a diamond. The rapidity 
with which the work is accomplished, the satisfac- 
tion of having it done properly, and the pleasure of 
having a stone sharp and clean, never glazed or 
filled, always ready for service, outweighs many 
times the slight increased expenditure on many 
goods of similar form and size now on the market. 

Every stone is guaranteed to be perfect.

Could you import a Tudhope 

for $1,750? 

F Todh6pe Ckrs were imported from die Everitt 

k factory in Detroit, .their price i to Canadjan buyers 

r r^L would be increased a nmiici *&**&5±n ' — ^ — 

OF according to the model. Tudhope Cars ar| built 

fe^ in Canada from the Everitt designs. Making 

^M^ them on a large scale, hi the Tudhope factory, 

which has equipment to be found in only the most modern 
vyui^n »x«c^ i ^ «, ^_ n qp.^Virtrup. Cars in Canada 

S."Se"sam; price "a. Sey command on the American market. 


Consider whet this means in the purchase 
of a Tudhope four-cylinder 30-36 Touring Car 
at $1 75«. This car is superior in construction 
and appotntments to many of the imported 
cars which se,|l at 52,300. 

Compare it and see. 

Examine the long-stroke motor east en 
bloc; the material used— chrome nickel steel ; 
the dcuble-drop frame; the Continental De- 

mountable Rims «nd the Bosch Dual Ignition 
system. Other cars at $1,700 do not embody 
these features— 

And why? Because the imported c«r» 
which sell in Canada for$l,700 are $1,200 cars 
in the United States. They are not as high a 
type of car as the Tudhope. 

Now look at the Equipment; 



Every Tudhope car is fully equipped. That is, it has everything 
the buyer needs. Besides the usual equipment, which of course 
includes top and windshield, it has a speedometer, steel tool- 
box on the inning-board and an Extra Tire ana Demountable 
Wm. Ever? car has nickel trimmings with black-and-nickel 
lamp., and in addition has the Special Tudhope Equipment.

The Charm in the Silent 
"Waverley" Electric 

The charm in the SILENT "WAVERLEY" ELECTRIC, as il- 
lustrated, is not only due to silence, simplicity and safety, but it 
is due equally as much to the eulture in little things. 

For instance, the illumination of the step at night (see illus- 
tration above) when the door is open, the unusual generosity of 
room, the comforts in petit appointments, the smartness of fin- 
ish, and the quiet dignity of style that goes always with the SU- 
PERIOR thing. 

These and other little things, uncommon to motor cars, give 
the SILENT "WAVERLEY" ELECTRIC a rare motor personality. 

Those who make the "WAVERLEY" ELECTRICS have made 
them enticing, irresistible and beautiful.

i mi; Dl the most loterwBttng and 
scholurly addresses of the present ses- 
sion of parliament waj that delivered 
on Fdfiay evening bji the minister of 
education, Eioni Dr. Yming:, in moving 
iiu- second reading of the mil amending 
the act of the British Columbia uni- 
versity. The minister said In part: 

"Mr. Spfuker: The bill which 1 have 
i.) present tonight is one in a periee 
presented to this house In connection 
with the establishment of the provin- 
cial university. The proceedings in 
connection with the establishment of 
tills institution have now reached the 
point where actual construction of the 
buildings will begin, and 1 am taking 
this opportunity to correct a small mis- 
take that entered into the charter at 
the time or Its passage by the house. 
The notices for the calling of convoca- 
tion have gone forth, and it was dis- 
..-.:•::! :r. issuing these ilmL ..Ul.IHbs. 
tion 20 of chapter 59 of the statutes of 
-taw. tho folio wing words were-* 
•The chairman shall be chancell 
the university.' The sentenoe shoul 
have read: 'The chancellor of the uni- 
versity shall be chairman of the con- 
ation.' As Is shown further o&M

"The second Item in the bill presides 
for an amendment to section 39, in 
which is denned the powers of the 
board of governors. In sub-aectlon (f) 
power is given to the board to appoint 
the president of the university. I am 
amending this section now to place the 
'appointment of the first president In 
the hands of the Ueutenant-governor- The reason for this is that 
the president will be the man who will 
be responsible from now on for the 
carrying out of the scheme, responsible 
for the organization of the institution, 
for the selection for recommendation 
to the board, of the professorial staff, 
and it would not be fair to htm nor 
to the institution were he not to be in 
touch with the plans as carried out 
from their, very Inception. This has 
been the procedure followed by the 
universities being established in Can- 

ada unci :i'.;o !n the United ft$Bt«*i "'•• 
tendency being to place more and more 
in the hands of the president the full 
management of a university, and the . 
success of the schenu- depends upon 
his ability to give effect to ttW Pro- 
visions of the various relath-K acts.

ceptance of this amendment is that l

sum of $l6,00tJ to be used ' prizes 
for the architects, and at present there 
is appearing in the press throughout

petitive plans for thi general lay-

architectural scheme of the buildings, 
and further, the elevation and specifi- 
cations for the arts building, the agri- 
cultural building, and the dormitories. 
Arts Faculty Plrst 
"I am first establishing 

upon careful lnuulry ana from the re- 
ports received from those who are in 
oharge of the teaching bodies In Brit- 
ish Columbia. McC.lit College at Van- 
couver, has, 1 believe, 170 to 180 stu- 
dents enrolled during the present term. 
The theological bodies are teaching 
from 59 to HO pupils. There are a large 
number of British Columbia pupils ha 
th.- high schools taking university 
WOrk, and In the east, at Mcvitll cOl* 
lege, .Montreal, and Toronto unlversits, 
there Sre during the present winter, 200 
British Columbia students. Tukin* 
this for a nucleus, nn<1 adding to It 
the- large number of pupils resident In 
British Columbia, who would be only 
too glad to take university work when 
ihey can get it in their own province 
and at a minimum cost, the result will 
be h very large attendance. There are 
many in British Columbia who have 
I, ecu fli ler-ed by financial reasons from 
proceeding with university work.

There has been some criticism In the

Convocation on August Slat

carry out the other provisions 'of the 
University act. Convocation has been 
called for August 21, to be held in the 
city of Victoria, and it Is desired that

"I feel, Mr. Speaker, tonight, that we 

have reached solid ground in connect 
tion with the. establishment of the uni- 
versity. It has apparently taken some, 
long time to r ;.<h this stage, and while 
on the surface It may have appeared 
that the government has been dllato-y, 
I can asmie yo that nothing has bee.i 
neglected and no effort wasted or time 
lost in proceediiif. with the foundations 
for the establishment of this Institu- 
tion. It Is a big work and we have 
made haste slowly In order ta avoid 
as far as possible mistakes made by

costly experience. We have consulted 

With iV, who have been engaged in 

building up universities, and we feel 
confident that we have, as far as it IS 
possible, done the best to' 1 establish an 
institution which will, we hope, meet 
all modern conditions and requirements 
of higher education. This 13 an insti- 
tution that is being founded for the 
people of British Columbia; It Is an 
institution in which the government 
have shown an earnest desire, to assist 
In every way In their power to es- 
tablish upon a proper basis, and I fee! 
confident that I can predict that if 
the Bflme earnest desire to bring about 
a perfect result is continued, £bat this 

institution will be one of the best pi 
Us kind In Canada, and when a man 
leaves it with a degree, I feel that th.l

Mr. Jackson Inquired whether it was 
the intention 'of -the company to as- 
sume and pay the debts contracted by 
the Midway & Vernon Railway com- 
pany and. not otherwise provided for? 

Premier MeBrlde* replied that these 
debts In so far as they affect the pres- 
rttif nn» hnvft been assumed by the 
present corporation- From the report 
of the two gentlemen who had been 
appointed* to make special Investiga- 
tion into the matter of Midway & Ver- 
non liabilities, It would seem- that th 
was still a question of some outstand- 
ing debts, and it was intended to secure 
If possible the discharge of any fur- 
ther legitimate outstanding accounts. 
The government, the member for 
Greenwood might rest assured, w- ■ 
, .v nothing undone to ha.e all iaw- 
i] obligations liquidated. 
On the bill for the by 
the crown of the Columbia & West- 
• ; ubsldy lands being dealt with, Mr. 
Williams asked what had become of 
the land grant of some -,000 acres per 
mile that was given to secure con- 
struction of the Kaslo & Sloean rail- 

Hon. Mr. MeBrlde answered thai it 
had been disposed of by the Great 
Northern company. When this sub- 

sidy was given it had not been made 
conditional upon continued operation 
of the road. 

This measure was reported to the 
house with some trifling amendments. 
Hon. Mr. Bowser, In moving the sec- 
ond reading of the bill to amend the 
British Columbia Railway act said that 
the old act gave a company incorpor- 
ating under Its provisions but one. year 
In which to begin actual construction. 
This had in certain cases been found 
Impossible and this present bill con- 
ferral noon tha minister of railways 
power to grant In such cases an exten- 
sion limited to one year. 

This bill — which will meet the case 
of the Victoria Inner Harbor Railway 
company— passed second reading with- 
out exciting opposition. 

The second reading was also moved 
by the attorney -general of a -bill to 
amend the iSettled Estates act. the ex- 
planation being offered that where 
estates were largely encumbered, the 
department, with consent of all inter- 
ested parties, might submit a scheme 
of relief. The bill merely gave the de- 
partment power to propose such a 
scheme, and was agreed to bj the 

In moving second reading of the bill 
to amend the Companies' act, the at- 
torney-genera! explained that the 
amendments proposed had been for the 
most part' suggested by the registrar 
of companies, based upon his expert* 
oe In two years' working of the act 
details of which would be explained 
at tin- cOmmlttee stage. The bill was 
agreed to.

measure was inirudu- d upon the sug 

Approval of the principle of this bill 
was expressed by Mr. Bit- water, who 
said, bowever. that ne should have 
liked to see the measure go further 
and the government assume owner- 
ship and control of all telophonea 
throughout the province 

The second reading was unopposed, 
as also wan that of tho bill respecting 
the regulation of employment agencies. 
The only division of the evening was 
upon the passage of the schedule of

So much has been said about BETTER TERMS that we decided it was an opportune 
time to MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT regarding OUR POLICY for the present yefr. Last 
year proved a success in all respects and OUR POLICY for the future is one of SMALL 

PROFITS, or in other words, BETTER 

TERMS. We know exactly what it cost 
us to run our business, and find that 
owing to wonderful development, we 
can do business on a smaller margin 
than last year. The shrewd buyer will 
find upon inspection that we have 

now — • 


Famous $15, $20 and 
$25 Clothes 

Than ever before. We would ask that, 
in justice to yourself, you inspect ,our 
big display for spring, and promise you 
will find that we offer better values, 
better style and a better assortment 
than ever before. 



New Hats New Shirts New Neckwear 

Feb. 13th, 1912, Our fact No. 2 reads: "At the very least half 
of Reserve will be required." See our "Times" ad Feb. 22nd, 
1012. The Prime Minister of British Columbia, the Hon. Rich- 
iird MeBride, as quoted in the Victoria Daily "Colonist," says: 
"That in view of the great construction in prospect, the entire 
Reserve will have to be given up for terminals." 

The Premier's statement fully justifies all our contentions, 
and his remarks undoubtedly show an expenditure and develop- 
ment, at least twice as large as we expected; therefore, all prop- 
erties immediately west and east of the Reserve will increase 
with construction at the conservative rate of 100 per cent per an- 

We still have a few excellent investments, which we can de- 
liver at prices ranging from 


to $200,000 

fc On terms spread oyew J^riod of five years.

Quantity of Om1» Stolon — Entrance 

Obtained by Maana of Transom 

St Andrew'e Cathedral, corner of 
View and Blanchard streets, «M broken 

into trie otiiol &>g..<.. a 

money being taken fro,,, one of the or- 
namental offertory boxes, which had 
tc be amashed In order to eff«.-t an en- 
trance. No trace of the thieves, or of 
how they gained access to the building 
to commit their desecrating act, baa 
been obtained, but it is believed by the 
police that the spacious transom of 
one of the windows was utilized. 

The theft occurred early In the morn- 
ing when the district was wrapped In 
darkness and quietness, and nothing 
was known of the off. -nee until I 
knorntn&r. when th- rracments of the ..of- 
fertory box were found Uttered about 
the floor. Whether the offense was 
committed by expert burglar* or •> 
bo>«. is a matter that cannot yet be 
rt.t» r min«l. but Whoever U was, the 
idea responsible foi the crime was un- 
doubtedly t'bftl tha offertory boxes 
woTld recoup them well for the risk 
incurred. It so happened, however, 
that the particular box which they 
ooened. did not contain a great sun,. 
There was a number of qtter boxes in 
the cathedral at the time, but these ap- 

n.raullv could not be discovered by the 

robbers, or if mey were located, -were 
pasted up as of little value after the 
failure of the first one attacked, to re- 
turn the desired profit. 

How the thieves obtained access to 
the building is largely a matter of con- 
lecture, but it is stated by the police 
officials that the transom of one of the 
window* secwed tha, puraflflCU..W,».th. the

And which will undoubtedly be one of the most popular styles for 
Spring 191 2. You can't help but admire its graceful lines, close- 
fitting collar, soft roll of lapels and the natural shoulder. You'll 
note the coat is somewhat shorter than for the past season and also 
that the corners are more rounding. It is the English model so 
favored now. Of course we have not forgotten the many men who 
demand the longer and more loosely cut garment. These, too, are 
here in abundance. 

Cloths most in favor are soft Scotch Cheviots and Tweeds,

Some Advantages 
of Having This 
Company Named 
as Executor 
and Trustee in 
Your Will 

Because acting in these 
capacities is our business, 
therefore we are naturally 
able to handle such work 
more quickly and satisfac- 
torily and less expensively 
than an individual who has 
his private affairs to attend 

Because it rccpiires tech- 
nical knowledge and much 
experience tb satisfactorily 
handle trust funds, and it 
is unreasonable to expect 
expert knowledge from 
limited experience in this 

Because the faithful per- 
formance of the duties of 
this company as executor 
and trustee is guaranteed 
by its total assets, amount- 
ing to over $3,000,000, as 
well as by its bond with 
the government . ami by 
government inspection,

It. is possibly correct to say that every adult 
person now inhabiting the earth remembers 
the time when, had it been stated that a means 
had been devised whereby it would be pos- 
sible to transmit messages by mechanical 
means without the use of wires, such declar- 
ation would have been termed the ravings of 
a madman— yet today not only has this sys- 
tem been established in all parts of the world, 
but so commonplace has it become that nobody 
thinks very much about the wonderful achieve- 
ment any more. No doubt the fac tthat every- 
body is so busy militates against an adequate 
amount, of interest being shown in what must 
ever rank as the most marvelous human suc- 
cess in the realm of invention since the dawn 
of creation; but, aside from that aspect of 
the matter, the benefits to mankind flowing 
from the operation of the system are so 
abundant and striking that, bringing the sub- 
ject down to the grosser base of material 
things, wireless telegraphy seems destined to 
prove one of the greatest blessings that has 
ever been bestowed on mankind. Much of 
the peril which attended the vocation of those 
"who go down to the sea in ships" has been 
eliminated — and of course the usefulness of the 
system in respect to aiding navigation is only 
as yet in its initial stage. 

Through the courtesy of Mr. E. J. Haugh- 
ton, superintendent of the various wireless sta- 
tions in British Columbia maintained by the 
Federal Government — and who, by the way, 
is universaly admitted to be the right man in 
the right place, and to whose ability much of 
the success which has attended the operation 
of the system in this Province is due — The 
Colonist is enabled this morning to present 
some very interesting data on this fascinating 

"All-Red" Electric Belt 

The British Empire will shortly be wear- 
ing a wireless electric belt, which will ma- 
terially invigorate the "all-red" sections of the 
globe. Rather, perhaps, we should say a se- 
ries Of electric belts— a network, in fact. Wire- 
less stations are being erected so generally 
tVjwtjtrhmit the Empire that it is now but a 
matter" of months when high-power wireless 
stations will link its every part. 

The accompanying plan of half the world 
(Continued on Next Page)

Sunday, W»beu»ry «/ '•** 

which has been redrawn and adapted from an 
illustration in Graphic, shows the new scheme 
for a chain of British Marconi stations to be 
directly controlled by the Genera Post Of- 
fice. About 25 new stations will have to be 
built to complete the chain, and these will cost 
£1,500,000. It is estimated that the cost of 
maintaining the stations will be £200,000 a 
vear, and that the revenue produced will be 
£600,000, taking the daily business as 15.000 
words transmitted from each station. 

Great Britain is the only Power in the 
world which could link up its dominions in this 
way A glance at the map shows how the posi- 
tions of the units of British terr,tory-the ai- 
red sections of the geography book-are suf- 
ficiently close together not only to form a 
chain between them but to permit of every 
.hip in the mercantile and naval marines being 
in touch with one or another of the Empires 
wireless stations, and so with the centre of the 
Empire itself. Nor must it be forgotten rnal a 
wireless message travels at the speed of 18 >,- 
000 miles a second. If a message could be let 
loose here, with a sufficiently powerful 
current behind it, in one second it could get 
„ 1 ►!-.« v»;r.Hrl seven or eieht times. 

"Wireless on B. C. Coast

tions to be owiied and operated entirely by 
the Canadian Government were opened at 
Gonzales Hill (Victoria), Point Grey fVan-

Eigantic bird'., nest. It was necessary for him 
to chop his way through this mass of tangled 
bows and leaves, which proved to be an 
abandoned eagles nest. . fot ;-, n 

\t the time of the budding ot the station 
it was not known whether successful com- 
munication would be had between all of them. 
However. Victoria and Point Grey had no dif- 
ficulty in communicating with each other, 
Point Grev and Cape Lazo, Pachena and Este- 
vah worked well, but no -signals were re-

Remarkable Strides 

The remarkable strides that wireless teleg- 
raphv has taken on this coast is evidenced by 
the following statistics: 

10O7 _Five Canadian stations not mtcr- 
. communicating. Three small power stations 
owned by the Pacific \\ irelcss Company at 
Victoria, Port Townsend and Seattle. Three 
vessels with commercial equipments and a 
few U S Government stations operating. 

,oi->— Nine Canadian Government stations 
all intercommunicating and keeping up con- 
stant connection between Victoria and 1 r.nce 
Rupert and vessels at sea. Over one hundred 
and fifty coasting and seagoing vessels 
equipped with modern wireless apparatus, of 
different types. The U. S. navy operate a 
chain of stations between Bremerton, Wash., 
ami San Diego. Cal. The U. S. army have 
several stations in the Sound and Alaska. The 
United Wireless operate extensively in the 
Sound, Oregon and California. 

The Business Handled 
The incidents in which the wireless is ot 
assistance to ships have become so ordinary 
that no particular note is taken unless in cir-. 
cumstances such as are described in the fol- 
lowing official report issued by the Naval 

Service J \ 

The business handled by the above stations 
during the preceding fiscal year 1909-10 was 
,8.469 messages,* containing 265,414 wdrds. 
The present year shows an increase of $43-- 
9,9 messages and 5 27.5«8 words over last

Night Work on the West Coast 
The peculiar phenomena attesting the 
range of wireless telegraph stations on the 
West Coast has been very marked during the 
oast year. It has been observed that between 
unset and sunrise during ihe fall, winter and 
pring months, the range of the stations, both 
for transmitting and receiving, is "greased 
from 300 to Soo per cent. The phenomena is 
somewhat .erratic. On some night* it is con- 
tinuous and constant communication can be 
maintained with another station within the 
zone but on other nights it is intermittent and

Assisting Distressed Vessels 
The wireless service has proved its useful- 
ness in several of the latter which have oc- 
curred on the coast during the past year, of 
which the following are among the most im- 

POr December 2. lOTO, the SS. Northwestern, 
Cant. Croskey, owned by the Alaska Steam- 
ship Co.. ran ashore on Pile Point, San Juan 
Ulincl. Washington. She sent out wireless 
distress calls, which were responaed to oy 
our Victoria station and the C. P, R. steamer 
Tees- the B. C. Salvage Company was com- 
municated with and the wrecking steamer 
Salvor sent to her assistance. . < 

lanuarv 27, 19"- the steamer Cottage City, 
owned bv the Pacific Coast Steamship Co., 
ran ashore on Cape Mudge in a blinding 
snowstorm. She sent out distress signals *nd 
downers were communicated with bv our 
Cape Lato Station. The vessel was abandoned 
half an hour after striking. s ^ 

January 27, 191 J. the **2^m£fi& l 
Gillan, owned by the C P. R.. Co., grounded 
in Barklcy Sound. Commtmfcat.on was es- 
tablished with Pachena and twenty mmutes 
af te "he stranding the owners were notified 
and assistance was despatehed .from - V^tia. 
and the United States life-saying ^tatgn at 
Tatoosh. THe veHsei was floated next nlo«i- 

l \u.rvi ton. the steanier ; Princess f , owned by tlte e^.tc 

equipment is 400 miles. 

\nother peculiar feature in connection 
with the above is that while ; the Vic- 
toria 'Station is in communication prac- 
tically every night with Ikeda Head 
400 miles north. 250 of which are over higl 
land, and with the stations along the wes 
coast of the United States as far down as Sai 
Diego 1. 000 miles south of Victoria, all 
which is over high land, including the Cascad 
Range and the Sierra Nevada, rising to 
height of 15,000 feet, no improvement has eve 
been noticed in the communication betwee 
Pachena Pointj B. C, and Victoria, B.C.,^ 
miles apart. 

No reasonable explanation for the same m 
yet been discovered. A systematic observant 
6f the phenomena is being made and whe 
more precise information is available there 
no doubt some satisfactory explanation w 
be forthcoming. 

The Point Grey Station. 
It has been hardly five years since Mr. 

Wireless Station, ticked off his messag 
and receiVed replies from a small roc 
at the back Of the kitchen in his cottage at t 
Point. Now there is a separate three-room 
building, three shifts of operators, and seve 

The station was established in 19 
when a Mr. Patterson was installed in char 
lie resigned in a few months and Mr. Jan 
took over the management, occupying, w 
Mrs. James, the cottage at the extreme end 
Point Grey. A room was partitioned off 
hind the kitchen for the working of the w 
less instrument, while the generating eng 
was put in the cellar below the room. A gi 
Douglas fir which had escaped the ravage: 
fire and woodsmen, was made the anten 
for the station. The tree is 225 feet high, 

.. . %v j r « ror>es kee^ it erect. At the t 

he look over the .management, Mr. James' t 
rfence was some three miles from anyb 

else s. 

In 1908 Mr, J. IP McDonald of Vancot 

joined the staff .becoming second operator, 

a service was established from 8 ami. to a1 

1 1.^0 p.m. He "lived in the cottage for a ' 

and helped to work-in the room behind 

kitchen. Two years ago the equipment 

found to be altogether inadequate and th< 

gine of three horse-power, the instrum. 

plates and other apparatus were moved tc

The War With the Sikhs 

Sixty-one years ago today takes us back to 
the time of the war with the Sikhs in India. We 
all know more or less about the Sikhs here in 
ritish Columbia, but perhaps that knowdedge 
\ not give us an adequate idea of the char- 
acter of this race of people. To know a peo- 
ple as representative of their country we must 
see them in their native surroundings, wdiere 
history has made them the only fitting back- 
ground. Any transplanted peopie. until they 
have become assimilated, are at an enormous 
disadvantage: the qualities that characterize 
them arc either unpleasantly exaggerated, or 
hidden under a cloak of reserve, and to study 
-ueh people under these conditions is to ar-, 
rive at an unfair conclusion in nearly every 

The history of the Sikh people dates from 
1549. when the Sikh religion was founded by 
Xan'ak Shah, a profound philosopher and ideal- 
ist, who lived a life of absolute purity, taught 
that man should love his neighbor as himself, 
and worship one God. The terrible persecu- 
tion* which these neonle were forced to en- 
dure at the hands pi the Mohammedans gradu- 
ally brought about their training as warriors, 
and so proficient did they become, that at the 
close of the 18th century they had made them- 
selves masters of the Punjab and the. sur- 
rounding districts. 

it was when Sir Henry 1 1 ardingc was gov- 
ernor-general that the British became engaged 
in the most formidable war they had encoun- 
tered in India. War broke out 'between them 
and the Sikhs in 1845. At first victory vacil- 
lated between the two armies, but gradually 
the British began to gain the advantage. The 
Sikh v were Worthy opponents, and in spite of 
reverses did not seem to kfiOV when thpv 
were beaten, for they rallied to the attack 
again and again. However, the repeated vic- 
tories of the British at length convinced them 
of the futility of continuing the war just then, 
and peace was made at Lahore by the surren- 
der by the Sikhs of a large amount of territory 
and the payment of an indemnity, Feb. 20, 

Two years later, when the Marquis of Dal- 
hotisic was governor-general, war broke out 
again with the Sikhs, and they fought with all 
the fierce courage of a last hope. At the bat- 
tle of Gujerat with General Gondii, in com- 
mand of the British, the Sikhs were finally 
' defeated on Feb. 21. T849. and the Punjab 
was annexed to the British dominions. 

Since those days the Sikhs have remained 
faithful friends and allies of the British, never 
swerving from their allegiance through the 
Mutiny, They are among the best, if not the 
best, of the East Indian (ronps.

The Blessed One having attained Buddha- 
hood, pronounced this solemn utterance: 

Blessed is freedom from malice. Blissful 
is absence from lust and the loss of all pride 
that comes from the thought. "1 am." 

I have recognized the deepest truth which 
is sublime and peace-giving, but difficult to 
understand; For most men move in a sphere 
of worldly interests and find their delight in 
worldly desires. ..' W' 7::r 

The worldling will not understand the doc- 
trine, for to him there is happiness in selfhood 
only, and the bliss that lies in a complete sur- 
render to truth is unintelligible to him. 

He will call resignation what to the l'ht- 
lightened One is purest joy. lie will sec an- 
nihilation where "the perfected one finds im- 
mortality. He will regard as death what the 
conqueror of self knows to be life everlasting. 
The truth remains hidden from him who i=

So it is that the composer wdio undertakes

he is nOt merely a poet, but that he is dealing 
with certain scientific facts as well. lie must

itations of the singer. I believe that in "Mona"

Yet there is still another side to be consid- 
ered. The advocates of any cause come too 
often to demand absolute perfection, a perfec- 
tion that never ha- existed on land or sea. It is 
all very well for the public to demand that 
each word iri an opera be understood, and to 
point to Italy and France as examples' of their 
theory. The Only answer is that neither in 
Italy nor in FYance does the public tinder- 
stand each word. The people come to the 
opera, having first studied carefully the libret- 
to. They do not expect to understand each 
word, and they do not. I doubt if the singers 
whose , liction is the best make clear one-half of 
what they sing. It is an absolute impossibil- 
ity, with the violins running up and down the 
scales and the brass blaring out unrestrained- 
ly. The best the singer can do is to let his 
audience each his words when it is possible, 
and by thisand with the aid of the librettos 
which they have already studied give them 
the impression that they are hearing the rest 
— though in reality they are not. It is this

The influence of the country, which we now 
know as France, upon the world at large has 
been and is todav. of such vast importance 
that its story from early ages ought to interest 
all persons, who like to follow the record of 
the progress of mankind. It is also full of 
many valuable lessons. What is the use of 
the study of history? is sometimes asked. Lftc 
answer is that familiarity with history of the 
past affords a guide for the present. It shows 
us what are the tendencies of men. individu- 
ally and nationally; it points out directions 
along which progress can be safely attempted; 
i1 marks the places where dangers fie. It M 
more than two thousand years ago sine* : the 
people living between the Alps and the Allan- 
tic Ocean began to make their influence WM 
"iylhe rest of tlie world, and as we lou.nv mc 
storv of the land and its inhabitants, we shall 
see "human nature in many phases of its de- 
velopment. If it is true that "the proper study 
of mankind is man." the history of no country 
in the world will better repay thought than 
ii France, 
f we could see France: ^ it was twenty 
five centuries ago. it would appear far differ- 
ent from the smiling land of today. It was a 
region of forests and morasses, with a climate 
moist and warm in summer and cold in winter. 
How rrnirii -of the change jlgr 
ing away of the superabundant n 
tation and the draining of the land, anddiow 
much, if any. to a gradual amelioration of the 
climate of the Northern Hemisphere, must 
remain uncertain, but doubtless it is prmci- 
pallv due to the former cause. Dwelling in this 
inhospitable land were three races of men, the 
flclgicans on the north, the Aquitamans on the 
south, and the Gauls in the centre. The latter 
were much more numerous than the others 
The origin of these tribes is unknown. There 
is some ground for believing that the Gauls 
were invaders from the East and iOund thff 
others living in the country, pushing them 
aside to make room for themselves. The Be!- 
cxic tribe has largely lost its identity owing to 
The fact that the region in which it dwelt has 
een subjected to almost innumerable inva- 
bus of other people. The Aquitamans found 
reater security in the valleys of the. Pyrenees, 
and theit descendants are represented today 
by the people known as the Basques, whose 
purity of blood is such and whose independ- 
ence is of such ancient origin, that the Span- 
iards have a saying that "to be born a Basque 
is to have a patent of nobility." The practice 
is to refer to the Gauls a s Celts, and for this 
we have the warrant of no less an authority 
than Julius Caesar, whose word on such a 
poini ought to be final: but it is perhaps going 
tpo far to say, as many writers do, that the 
Gauls, because they were known as Celts in 
Caesar's time, were necessarily of the same 
origin as the other European ♦tribes included 
r the general term Celtic, or, as it has be- 
come the fashion to write the word, Keltic. 
Th. re is good reason, however, for the opinion 
bat the Gaels of Scotland were of the same 
origin as the Gauls, and that the native tongue 
of The people, who three centuries before tin- 
Christian Era overran a large part of southern 
Europe, was not very dissimilar from the 
Gaelic of todaj . 

Three thousand years ago France was a

own time they have gone to Australia, Cali- 
fornia, the Cariboo attd the Yukon. It was 
about eleven centuries before Christ that the 
Pho* - began to exploit the wealth of the 

land. The sought for gold, silver and furs in 
a land where neither can now be found except 
in the savings of the people or in the garments 
of the rich. There is a river in southern 
France nOw called the Ariege. It was known 
to the Roman- as Aurigera, that is the Gold- 
bearer. The Phoenicians carried with them on 
their voyages cloths of various kinds, glass 
ornaments, arms and wine, and trafficked with 
the natives after a fashion with which we are 
all familiar enough. The traders, in order 
that they might be able to carry on their trad- 
ing with safety, founded several posts, or col- 
onies, just as Europeans have done on the coast 
of Africa or as the Hudson's Ray Company did 
here at Victoria. They continued to occupy 
these trading posts, constructing highways 
connecting them, for about three centuries, 
when the power of the Home Country was 
broken by the growing pdwer of Greece and 
the maritime supremacy of the Phoenicia be 
came a thing of the past. 

The Greeks profited by the example of 
the people whom they had supplanted on the 
Mediterranean, and they also traded with 
Gaul. The Rhodians were the first of the 
Greeks to engage in this profitable business, 
but it languished in their hands, and about the 
year 6oo B.C. it had almost vanished. Then 
came Euxenes, a roving trader from Phocea, 
a Greek city in Asia Minor. He landed near 
the mouth of the Rhone and was welcomed by 
Nann, the chief of the country. Nann was 
about to give a great feast at which hi* daugh- 
ter Gyptis would choose her husband, and 
Euxenes was invited to be present. The cus- 
tom was, as it is today among the Basques, for 
the maiden to appear only at the close of the 
feast, and choose her husband from among 
the guests, by presenting to him a wine-cup. 
When G mM% t!S appeared sh*> advanced at once 
to Euxenes and^ offered him the cup. Great 
was the indignation of the tribesmen, say the 
legends, but the custom of the land prevailed. 
Nann -professed to see in his daughter's choice 
an inspiration from the gods, ant^be net only 

assented to the marriage, but gave Euzenes 
the bay on the shore of which the feast was 
held and a considerable country surrounding 
it, as his bride's dowry. Euxenes was rejoiced 
at a success that greatly exceeded his fondest 
hopes. He sent his ship away for colonists, 
and the vessel returned within a year, laden 
with people and accompanied by others, 
carrying settlers to the new Land of Promise. 
They brought with them cattle, arms, seeds 
and cuttings of olive- and grapevines. They 
a j so bad with them a statue of Diana and one 
of the priests from the celebrated Temple at 
Ephesus. On their arrival Euxenes proceeded 
to' found a city, which he called Massiiia, the 
modern Marseilles, and the settlers began to 
clear away the forest and plant the olive and 
grapevine" cuttings. Thus the beginning was 
made of the France of today. In the centuries 
which followed the land underwent manv vicis- 
situdes, but it never wholly lost the impetus of 
the courageous policy' of Euxenes, inspired, as 
it was, by his own courage and the romantic 
love of Gyptis, the Aquitanian maiden.

A Story of Gyges, King of .Lye 

It was about the year 667 B.C., when 
Assur-bani-pal was reigning in Assyria, and 
had 'carried on successfully the work of the 
monarchs who had gone before him, in further 
strengthening and enlarging his empire, that 
the caravajis coming from the north brought 
wonderful tales of a country in the extreme 
west of Asia Minor, called Lydia, "the country 
of the crossing of the sea." 

If we look at the old maps we will see tha\ 

the kingdom of Lydia bprdered along the 

Mediterranean and was separated from ancient 

Hellas by the Aegean Sea, with Crete and 

Cyprus to the south; therefore the tales that 

Gyges was as much a Greek as a Lydian were 

not without foundation. Grecian influence was 

strongly felt in the Lydian cities, and Gyges 

practically annexed many of the Greek colonies 

along the" coast, for though the bold disposition 

of the Greeks would not allow them to tolerate 

a foreign rule, they were glad to accept Gyges' 

aid in their internecine quarrels, and having 

once gained a footing, his influence became 

the predominating factor. Furthermore, there 

were Greek princesses in the royal harem at 

Lydia, and Greek gods were worshipped in 

the Lydian temples, while annually Gyges 

made rich gifts of gold and silver vases to 

the temple at Delphi. There were wonderful 

gold and silver mines in Lydia in those days, 

and the country was famed for its magnificent 

horses, and its skilful charioteers. 

Now this story has little to do with Assur- 
bani-pal or Assyria; the Assyrian king only 
heard the tale much as you arc hearing it now. 
Dascylus, for some political reason, had 
been banished to the country of the White 
Syrians, and had married and raised a family 
in his adopted home. He had no desire to re- 
turn to L) r dia when one day a messenger ar- 
rived from his uncle, Ardys, prince o! Tyrra, 
bidding him come to Sardes and prepare him- 
self to take his uncle's place, when Ardys, who 
had no children, should die. Dascylus, in- 
stead of obeying the summon.* sent his eldest 
son Gyges, a tall and very beautiful youth, 
then about eighteen years of age. When this 
young man made his appearance at his uncle's 
court : every one admired him so openly that^. 
it must have been a wonder if bis head were 
not turned. He was marvelously skilful in 
the use of all sorts of weapons, and his fame as 
a charioteer had preceded, him. In education 
he was partly Greek, and his manner was 
graceful accordingly, but he had all of his 
own people's boldness and dash, and the 
mountains among which he had been reared, 
beside investing him with a thousand and one 
physical charms, had given him something of 
the poet's temperament, so that his eloquence 
of speech was always convincing. 

Sadyattes, king of Lydia. having met 
Gyges. became one of his greatest admirers, 
gave him a high position at court, and show- 
ered innumerable favors upon him. Gyges 
used the king's influence for all it was worth. 
and enlarged his own domain and increased 
his riches, besides working secretly among 
the king's mercenaries at Sardes, winning 
their confidence, and their promise of support 
in a case of need. For Gyges had no small ob- 
ject in view; he meant to become king of 
Lvdia himself. Perhaps he thought he was 
onlv avenging a wrong done his family in 
the past, when they had been banished from 
the country, we would like to think he had 
some justification for the course he pursued. 
About what happened then there have been 
such a diversity of stories that one is at a 
loss which to select as the most credible. 
Sadyattes had sought the hand of a beautiful 
princess, Toudo, daughter of Arnossos of 
Myria, in marriage, and, as was the custom, he 
was to send an emissary to receive his bride 
from the hand of her father. What more nat- 
ural that in order to make a good impression, 
he should despatch Gyges, who, for his beauty, 
his skill and his eloquence, should bespeak^ 
favor for his master the king. We can guess 
what followed, for such things have hap- 
pened very often. On the long journey 
from Mysia, Gyges and the lovely young 
princess were thrown constantly in one an- 
other's society, and what was more natural 
than the girl should be fascinated bv a prince 
who had won the admiration of friends and 
foes alike?, Nor was it a matter of surprise 
that Gygek tantalized by the very fact that 
the princlss was the affianced bride of an- 
other, sho) ild become enamored of her, and 

from paying graceful compliments at the be- 
ginning of the journey, should, before Sardes 
was reached, have openly expressed his pas- 
sion, so that the princess, upon arriving at the 
capital, was torn between conflicting emo- 
tion, forced to give her hand where her heart 
could not go. 

It was on the wedding night that the ter- 
rible tragedy took place which has been re- 
counted since in various ways. The king and 
his queen bad gone to the bridal chamber, and 
it was while there that the queen told the 
king of all that had passed between herself and 
Gyges. Sadyattes was enraged at the perfidy 
of bis favorite, and swore that at daybreak be 
would kill him. There were those in service 
on the king who had heard him take this oath, 
and they stole away from the chamber door, 
where they had been listening, and sought out 
Gyges, who in the courtyard below was pac- 
ing moodily up and down. 
- Said Gyges to the soldier: "Tonight shall 
the prophecy fulfilled. E'er Toudo left her 
father's house, while she was sleeping one 
night, two eagles of supernatural size alighted 
on the roof, and the soothsayers read the sign 
that the princess would be the wife of two 
kings'. an a single night." 

With these words he called a following and 
told them to await his signal ; then he went 
alone to the king's chamber. He slew Sad- 
yattes without any warning whatsoever, and 
a little later when Toudo s' fears for her own 
safety had been allayed, he called his friends, 
and declared himself king of Lydia. As he 
had made Toudo his queen, he had some show 
of claim to the title, though he was not se- 
cure upon the throne until after he had sub- 
dued the king's adherents in a great battle, and 
the oracle at Delphi had enjoined upon the 
Lydians to accept Gyges as their rightful sov- 

It would be interesting to follow this king's 
career, but wc have come to the end of this 
story. Gyges' reign was a long and a victori- 
ous one.

'erhaps there is no word that is subject 
to so much misuse in connection with things 
religious as the word "believe." It is often "on 
the lips of those who seek to enforce their 
peculiar conceptions of Christianity upon 
others. It is employed as a sort of shibboleth 
by many excellent people, it is used a^ a sort 
of religious touchstone, and in countless ways 
it is made to do service by those who honestly 
endeavor to guide their fellows into right 
paths. Very frequently the occasions upon 
which it was used by Jesus are quoted to sus- 
tain some idea which cannot be discovered in 
any of His teachings. The habit of many ex- 
cellent people is to regard everything spoken 
by those in authority in the Christian Church 
from the days if its Founder until the present 
as a whole body of truth, belief in which was 
inculcated by Jesus Himself. True all these 
are not agreed a$ to who are to be understood 
as speaking with authority oh these points, but 
Luis uoes * not prevent cacri sec i-rom Dcrng 
equally insistent with the others in contend- 
ing for the correctness of what it believes. It 
may Ins of some interest, and perhaps of some 
profit, if we give a short synopsis of the cir- 
cumstances under which Jesus of Nazareth 
is reported to have used the word "Bel ieve." 

The Concordance gives twenty-seven in- 

-tances in which the word is said to have been 
uttered by Jesus. Of these, as might be ex- 
pected, the majority occur in the Gospel by 
St. John, which is the philosophic Gospel, and. 
therefore likely to contain such quotations. 
Only twice is He reported by St. Matthew to 
have used the word. Once in the ninth chapter 
and the 26th verse. A blind man is about to 
have his sight restored, and Jesus, turning to 
those about him, asks: "Believe ye that I am 
able to do this?" This recalls a statement 
made elsewhere in the Gospel where it Is said 
that He was not able to do many mighty works 
among them because of their unbelief. In the 
same Gospel, chapter eighteen, verse 16, He 
Speaks of children "as little ones that believe 
on me." Five times Jesus is reported by St. 
Mark- as having used the word. The first is 
in the 15th verse pf the first chapter, where 
Jesus is said to have been preaching to men 
that they should "repent and believe the Gos- 
pel." In the sixth, chapter, verse [6, the ruler 
of the svnagogue is thus exhorted: "l'e riot 
afraid, only believe.*!' In the ninth chapter 
.mil the 23rd verse, when the story is told of 
the casting but of the ''dumb spirit," Jesus 
said to the father of the afflicted boy: "If 
thou canst believe. All things are possible to 
them that believe." To this the father re- 
plied: "I believe; help thou my unbelief." In 
the eleventh chapter of the same Gospel, and 
the 24th verse, we read: "Whatsoever ye de- 
sire when yc pray, believe that we shall re- 
ceive and yc shall have it." Tn the sixteenth 
chapter, verse 17. we read of the works that 
shall follow them that believe. We find the 
word four times in St. Luke's Gospel, In the 
parable of the husbandman as explained in 
the eighth chapter,- we read in the 8th verse 
that by the seed which fell upon stony ground 
those Who "for a little while believe" are 
meant. It is used again in the same explana- 
tion. In the twenty-fourth chapter and the 
25th verse, we read that Jesus, addressing His 
disciples after the resurrection, said: "Q 

»._»_ _i„... „f U~~~i «■« lwaf'«*»* nil ftto' .♦!»*» 

prophets have spoken." 

We come now to the Gospel according to 
St. John, and here, as we would expect, 'we 
find the word employed more in a philosophic 

sense. On several occasions it is used in the 
ordinary sense of giving credence to a state- 
ment. In the sixth chapter and 29th verse we 
read: "This is the work of God that ye be- 
lieve on him whom he hath sent." In the 
eighth chapter and the 24th verse we find 
these words: "If ye believe not that 1 am 
he." It is not very clear from the immediate 
context just what is meant, but the reasonable 
inference is that the word "he" means the .Mes- 
siah. In the tenth chapter and 37th and 36th 
verses the same idea is advanced. The idea of 
ihc divine mission of Jesus is maintained 
throughout this Gospel, and we read in the 
report of the prayer uttered by Jesus before 
the raising of Lazarus "That they may be- 
lieve that Thou hast sent Me." The word is 
used several times in this narrative in the same 
sense. In the twelfth chapter and the 36th 
verse we find the following: "While ye have 
the light, believe in the light, thai ye may be 
children of the light." In chapter thirteen, 
verse 19, we read: ''Now 1 tell you before it 
come that when it come to pass ye may be- 
lieve that I am he," the reference being to his 
betrayal. Again, in chapter fourteen and in 
the lit ver-.e. wo read those' beautiful and 
hopeful words: "Let not your heart be trou- 
bled. Ye believe in God. believe also in me." 
The last time He used the word according to 
this Gospel was in the prayer uttered at the 
Last Supper, -when He said: "Neither pray I 
for 'these alone, but for them also that shall 
believe in me through their word,'-' and again, 
"That the world may believe that thou hast 
sent me." 

Through these quotations there seem to 
run two ideas. One of them is that by the ex- 
ercise of a power inherent in ourselves we can 
accomplish whatsoever we will. The other 
is that belief in the divine mission of Jesus is 
essentia! to the enjoyment of the benefits of 
the Gospel, which He came to impart to men- 
But the two ideas are wholly reconcileable ; 
for. as set out by Matthew. Mark and Luke, 
the teaching is given in the language of a nar- 
rator, while John sees the philosophic side of 
the fundamental principle. If it were not for 
the Fourth Gospel wc might be justified in 
thinking that Jesus intended to convey the 
thought that tiie potentialities resulting from 

1'V.llV.i » * *_ 1 \»- ■ I I I « V. 1 V. . i I 111 •■I41I1UII .<,**»«» V. * «-v •*-»», 

but John carries the teaching further and 
shows that it is divine in its source. Speaking 
in general terms and discarding the language 
of theology, we may say that the use of the 
word "believe," as Jesus is reported to have 
used it. warrants the statement that He taught 
that He was the long-expected Messiah; that 
He represented God, standing towards the 
Deity in the relation of a son to a father; that 
belief in His divinity as He Himself explained 
it is essential to the participation in the benefits 
of His mission, and that through this belief 
men may become able to accomplish things 
which otherwise impossible. At the 
same time it seems as if He desired men to 
understand that the things, which follow them 
that believe, are to be enjoyed in the present 
life. that, they are not to be understood as 
postponed to an indefinite future which wc 
are to have at some unknown time and in 
some unknown sphere, but here and now ; that 
tlie results that follow belief are not to be 
spiritual only but also of enormous advan- 
tage to us in our materia! life. But there is 
nothing in the whole Gospel which obliges any 
one to accent as final and authoritative such 
additions and amplifications as ecclesiasticism 
from time to time and in all its various forms 
has engrafted upon the Gospel. 



lower part was much larger than the upper, 
and the tatter was in some places so curved 
as to make more than a half circle. The whole 
surface was worn smooth What did this? It 
can hardly be explained by attributing it to 
the action' Of ice, for it was of such a shape 
that ice could not have carried stones through 
it. It suggested long continued action of wa- 
ter. How many centuries would have been 
necessary to enable water to wear away the 
rock, where the water came from and in what 
direction it was flowing are questions that 
cannot be solved. 

We. see in the rocks in this vicinity large 
grooves very smoothly polished. Were these 
grooves worn by rocks carried along on the 
under surface of a glacier, and did running 
water complete the smoothing process? We 
see in other places granite boulders. They 
are not as numerous now as they formerly 

The primary value of knowledge is to ob- 
tain a means of improving our condition, and 
hence what is of immediate practical advan- 
tage is to most people the more valuable; but 
there arc many things which can be learned 
which are a source of pleasure, and of profit, 
in a certain sense. The Mineral Kingdom is 
rich in such things and we miss much, if w r e 
do not keep our eyes open to the many things 
Avhich it presents for our observation. Resi- 
dents on the Pacific Coast of Canada arc very 
fortunate in this respect, for perhaps nowhere 
else are operations of the forces that have 
made the surface of the world what it is, to 
be more easily and interestingly studied than 
here. It may be .that the amateur observer 
will. not be' able to reach any conclusions of 
value; but neither does the amateur observer 
of a flower garden. Nature has in the rocks 
surrounding Victoria, for example, laid out 
before us a record of her work that will repay 
even casual study. Just to what extent the 
habit of observation is ^developed by our or- 
dinary school curriculum may be uncertain; 
but of the value of such a development there 
can be no doubt at all. 

The great rocks that come to the surface 
in this part of. the province present phenom- 
ena of extreme interest. At the rate improve- 
ment is proceeding in this particular locality 
it will shortly be necessary to gq farther 
afield than it now is to see the stage to which. 
Nature has brought the Mineral Kingdom, al- 
though of course we will always have the Sjfca 
shore a convenient field for observation.

were, oecause uuwdcl's nave broken up many 
of them. There stood a few years ago on 
McLaughlin Point a very remarkable granite 
mass. It was about seven feet high and near- 
ly square in form. Near the top was a re- 
markable groove extending all round the mass, 
and filled with matter much- darker than ihc 
remainder of the boulder. It was much too 
large to be moved and much too attractive to 
a builder to be allowed to remain unutilized. 
Where did it come from? Members of the 
Geological Survey, who inspected it, said that 
it was carried down from North Saanich by 
ice. no one can tell how many centuries ago. 
The same glacier is supposed to have carried 
the other boulders of granite so common 
hereabouts. But possibly it was not ice that 
did it. We know that icebergs carry masses 
of rock, and as they melt deposit their bur- 
dens on the bottom of the sea. Perhaps these 
boulders did not come from North Saanich. 
Perhaps in days long gone by all this land 
lay under the ocean, and some huge berg 
from the north may have stranded upon the, 
rock projections, remaining there until it was 
melted when the boulders it carried fell to 
the bottom. Afterwards the land rose grad- 
ually from the sea. These things are all very 
speculative; but the presence of granite boul- 
ders lying upon diorite must be explained in 
some way. Another difficulty arises when 
we consider the presence of these rocks as 
due to glacial action. They do not all rest 
upon a rock base ; in fact many of them lie 
upon the surface of the soil. How are we 
to explain this? When wc find a water-worn 
granite boulder lying on top of the soil in a 
place whpre there is not the least probability 
that it could have been dropped by human 
agency, how are we to explain its presence? 
Certainly a good deal of faith is required to 
enable us to accept the explanation that a 
huge glacier, perhaps thousands of feet in 
thickness, carried the boulder along and de- 
posited it upon the soil, for we know that the 
glacier would have carried the soil along with 

A walk along the shore will disclose many 
places where porphyry dykes extrude through 
the diorite. These dykes run," as a rule, in 
an east and west direction. Geologists may 
ibcui ize aboUl ibese as tlicv plcaSc, bul nu im- 
agination can conceive of the event which 
caused these masses of dark rock to force 
themselves through the lighter rock, or de- 
scribe the nature of the process. Indeed 
when we listen to what geologists have to 
tell us, or read What they write about such 
things, we have to take a good deal upon 
faith. The more one observes on the ground 
the results of the operations of w-hat is gen- 
erally accepted as the action of glaciers, the 
less one is surprised to be told that Louis 
Agassiz, the first of the geologists to con- 
centrate public attention upon glacial effects, 
should have expressed in his latter days very 
grave doubts if he had not been hasty in 
reaching some of the conclusions, which have 
been popularly accepted as established be- 
yond a question. We repeat that the study of 
the rock surfaces on Vancouver Island is full 
of interest, and although there is doubtless 
"no money in it." it's well worthy of, the at- 
tention of those who wish to know some- 
thing about the earth upon which we live.

It has been known for hundred* of years 
that legumes (clovers, or other crops belonging 
to the same botanical groui»)j when plowed 
under greatly increased the fertility of the 
soil. Up to "the last quarter of the past cen- 
tury it was considered that the vast stores of 
nitrogen in the air were not available as plant 
food, i.e.. that it could "uiy be uiJed by plants 
after its transformation into nitrates. It was 
then proved after extensive study that legumes 
could use this atmospheric nitrogen only with 
the aid of certain kind of bacteria (tunned 
Pseudomonas radicicola). These bacteria 
when present in the soil penetrate the line 
rootlets of the voting legume seedling, multiply 
there and form nodules or "little bunches" or 
"'tumors'' on the roots, where they become ac- 
tive in taking nitrogen from the supply in the 
air and storing it up in the plant. The/JJh

As the flocks of sheep in the majority of

to safeguard them against cougars, the follow-

may be interesting: 

Although sheep are specially suited for a 
free and outdoor existence, there are circum-

cases some method of inoculation should be 
adopted to supply the bacteria. Either of tWO 
methods may be used, namely, soil inocula- 
tion, and seed inoculation. Soil inoculation 
consists in securing soil from an established 
field of the legume to be sown, and spreading 
it over the field to be seeded at the rate of, two 
hundred to five hundred pounds per acre. This 
method is cumbersome and expensive and is 
apt to introduce into the soil, seeds of noxious 
weeds or bacteria of plant disease, hence it is 
not a desirable method. 

Seed inoculation consists in applying to the 
seed before it is sown, artificially brown cul- 
tures of the bacteria oiiynuiily secured from 
the nodules on the roots of the same species 
of plant which is to be sown. By this method 
the bacteria arc carried into the soil with the 
seed, and in ample numbers to practically in- 
sure infection of the roots, with consequent in- 
creased growth of the crop. The Bacteriologi- 
cal Laboratory of the Ontario Agricultural 
College has prepared and distributed such cul- 
tures to Canadian farmers each season since 
1905. During the autumn, blanks were sent 
to those farmers who received cultures the 
spring before, on which they reported the re- 
sults of the seed incoculation as to whether it 
had been of benefit to the seeding. A sum- 
mary of this work for each season thus far is 
given in the accompanying table, which shows 
that for seven seasons the average percentage 
of favorable results is 60.2 per cent:

Very simple apparatus is all that is required 
— blotting paper and inverted saucers do very 
well, or slates are fairly useful, though rather 
too close fitting. The somewhat elaborate ap-

All that is really required is sufficient mois-

porous substance kept damp will do this, and 
covering this over ensures the moisture being 
kept in fairly evenly. Tibs is the chief point 
to attend to, and the regulation pf the moisture 
requires a little practice. If too much water

England it is done regularly on odd corners 
of large private grounds, all the spare seeds 
being sown indiscriminately and indeed the

itself for this, the Shirley and Iceland Poppy, 
Nemophila, Cornflower, and Lovc-in-a

*In this column are. included reports from 
farmers Who sowed no uniuoculatcd seed, or 
in which long-continued drouth, excessive 
moisture, or some other condition injured or 
destroyed the seeding. 

The cultures for inoculating seed are 
grown in the Bacteriological Laboratory On a 
specially prepared "culture medium," and each 
one contains a sufficient number Of bacteria 
to inoculate a bushel of seed. 

For inoculating the seed, the culture is 
simp'}' mixed with a little skim-milk, or whey. 
or whole milk, then mixed thoroughly With the 
seed, which is then allowed to dry a few min 
utcs and sown in the usual way. For the. 
small amount involved in time and money it 
would seem advisable to inoculate ad le- 

Cultures will be distributed from the Bac- 
teriological Laboratory during the season of 
1912 for inoculating seed of alfalfa, red clover, 
alsike clover and peas. I'.ach kind Of seed re- 
quires a different kind of culture. The cultures 
are for use on seed only, not on soil. For in- 
oculating a field which has already been seed- 
ed, but on which the stand is unsatisfactory, 
the best method is to practice soil inoculation 

as described above. The cultures are g 1 

only for the season in which they are sent. 
There is only one size package, this being suf- 
ficient for sixty pounds of seed, though the 
entire culture may be used on less seed with- 
out harm. The cultures are sent by mail with 
complete directions for their use. As here- 
tofore, there will be 9 nominal charge of 
twenty-five cents for each culture to cover the 
expense of preparation and postage. 

Applications should state the kind and 
amount of seed to be inoculated and the ap- 
proximate . date of seeding. Applications 
should be sent, early, and should be accompan- 

of "sheep. The 

ling is not therefore a novelty, 
t not adopted in the case of ordin- 
ary flocks, it is commonly resorted to by ex- 
hibitors in preparing their animals for show. 

How Best to Use Sheds 
Before sheep are placed in sheds they ought 
to be shorn, either closely or to within an inch 
of the skin. This keeps them cool and clean, 
and prevents that sweating and that greasy 
appearance produced by confinement, Sheep 
always seem to breathe quicker when housed, 
and are certainly disposed to perspire, and 
these objectionable features are prevented by 
securing enough ventilation bv means of fre- 
quent openings in the walls whether of brick 
01 timber; as Well as in the roof. The shed 
should be roomy, airy, and. if divided into 
compartments, the partition.-, need not be more- 
than three to four feet high. The floor should 
be firm and dry, and the litter ought to be re- 
moved frequently, and kept fresh, so as to avoid 
fermentation and heat. Nor should the ani- 
mals be crowded, but they should have suffi- 
cient room to be separate, and to choose their 
own lairs. The shed is well provided with 
racks, cribs, and troughs, and should give upon 
a root-house, with a. cutter and room for fod- 
der and artificial foods. 

Another object of the shed-feeder is to se- 
cure the sheep against foot lameness, not ne- 
cessarily specific foot-rot. but a soft and spongy 
growth, encouraged by damp litter and want 
of exposure to the natural wear which is con- 
stantly taking place in the open field. The toes 

rri-ruv |r»n<«- atl^ the :mim;dv beiiur ill mailv 

cases heavy, contract lameness, so that con- 
stant attention and dressing are necessary. A 
lame sheep is not fit to send to a show-yard. 

Kinds of Sheep 
The shed system is not well adapted for 
lambs as these youug creatures invariably do 
best out of (Joors. Even when intended f$r 
exhibition, the field and open fold are prefer- 
able to any form of confinement, as is shown 
in the training of the best pens of lambs at the 
shows. These lambs have not been reared in 
sheds, and probably no successful exhibitor 
would think of exchanging outdoor conditions 
for confinement. The animals suitable for 
housing may be referred to as follows: Shear 
ing rams or wethers intended for exhibition ; 
also ewes kept back for a similar purpose; and 
weak late lambs, which are not Strong enough 
i.. w ithstan.d the winter. Such lambs are some- 
times puny, and in many cases have peeled to 
such a degree as to be almost without woo!. 
Thev- may be pirked out and placed in a com- 
fortable shed, and it will be well to run the 
shears pVfer them, and give them a more uni- 
form appearance. They will do better than in 
competition with strong lambs in the fold, and 
the remainder of the flock is improved in ap- 
pearance bv their withdrawal. They will also 
,1,, better separated, and after a few weeks may- 
be disposed of at the good prices which small 
carcases always command. 

It will be gathered from these remarks that 
shed-feeding of sheep must be regarded as ex- 
ceptional, but at the same time usefui in cer- 
tain instances The fact that sheep are large- 
ly maintained for the purpose of folding and 
manuring arable land for corn at once militates 
against extensive shed-feeding. It is one of the 
main recommendations of sheep that they arc 
independent, hardy, and extremely useful as a 
means of consolidating light land. In these 
respects they are superior to cattle. 



The health and strength of plants depend 
so very much On the germinal ing capacit) of 
the seed that the latter should never be bought, 
strictly speaking, unless they have passed a 
germinating test. At times, however, and in 
using home-groWn seeds, it is useful to tc-4 a 
sample for oneself, and it will be found rather 
an interesting Occupation. livery agricultural 
should know something about it. as it is 
neither a difficult nor a tedious business in the 
case of most common seeds. 

Jh, woody 

mangold-wurtzel and beetroot,

moisture than small seeds. Sand 

JBf^does if it is 

borne in mind. One is to see that germination 
takes place. within the time limit, which varies 
for different kinds of seed, and the other is to 
note the precocity which the seeds show. The 
latter shows the "germinating energy" of the 
sample, and it is important if a careful test is 

A vigorous growth is, of course., always de- 
sirable, but if extra information is required as 

In the cultivation of the lavender plant, cli 
is probably of more importance than soil, 
and, a light loam on chalk and a 
sheltered position with south or southwestern 
aspect are probably the most favorable condi- 
tions. The plant "is liable to be injured by 
frost. The soil should be well drained, light 
and fairly rich, and a naturally sheltered posi- 
.tibn-should-he - chosen: — Th e . soil should be al- 
jbwed to lie fallow before planting, all the 
weeds collected and burnt, and a good tilth 
obtained by ploughing: Manure may be add- 
ed at the same time. Cuttings should be 
taken from established plants in summer and 
planted 3 to 4 inches apart in prepared beds, 
where they can be watered in dry weather 
The young plants can be planted out in the 
following May, and dibbled in 4 feet apart in 
rows 6 feet apart. An acre will require 3;0O0 

soil with quicklime, to plant it. with other 
crops for a few years. 

There are certain flowers we can never 
have enough of in the garden, and of these the 
Pansy will repay a hundrefold the little 
trouble to grow a constant yearly succession. 
I'.y sowing now in the greenhouse and keep- 
ing the boxes well up to the glass when up, 
advantage may be taken of the first warm 
spring days to get them out into the open at 
first 101 si.iuc hours every day and then into 
some shady corner as their summer quarters. 
By raising them from seed any especially rich 
pattern and color may be propagated. If put 
into rich soil in the autumn it is possible to 
have them in flower nearly the whole year 
round. The old plants have a trick of gradu- 
ally enlarging the "eye" until it spoils the 
wdiole coloring, but a note may be made of 
those deteriorating in this way, and the plants 
consigned to the rubbish heap. This is a 
plant that even from the seed likes a rich com- 


"Snowdp.p." a Whi'c 1 M-pincti>:. cock, ownerj by V. J. Ades, of Cedar Cottage. Van- 
couver, B.C., probably has more blue ribbons to its credit than any bird of any class or vari- 
ety ever shown -n the Pacific Coast. Snowdrop has been awarded firsts at the Poultry Asso- 
ciation s shows at \ anc .11 vcr in 1010 and iwu, also at the Vancouver Fall Fair the same 
years and at the Provincial Poultrv Show this year. Last, but not least. "Snowdrop" took 
a first ribbon and a special fOr best'white bird at the Coast Poultry Association's show, which 
was held in Seattle, I-'ebruarv 6-1] this year. 

Brothers and sisters of this bird have many blue ribbons to their credit, won at the 
Crystal Palace. London, and other English poultry shows. Young stock from these birds 
have never been beaten, says Mr. Ades\ although the stock has been shown at five exhibits 
till svear. . 

Sir. \ries declares that his wife, and not he, should have the credit for bringing his seven 
prize winning White Orpin-ton-, valued at $2,000. up to their present high Standard and 
strain. ' "Mrs. Ades has done most of the actual work and scientific mating of our stock. 
said Mr. Ades. "while 1 have taken the birds around for display purposes, and she deserves 
all the credit.*' 

to the quality of the sample a note should be 
made of the number of seeds which germinate 
before, the time limit has expired, and also of 
the size and vigor of the young -hoot. A cer- 
tain percentage will always germinate before 
the others, sometimes many days before, and 
this given an indication of the likely strength 
of the sample; About ten days is the proper 
limit for many of the commoner seeds, such as 
peas, beans, cabbage, clovers and cereals, a 
fortnight for beet, and three weeks for most 
grasses. Seeds of trees take the longest, from 
[pur to six weeks. Another point to remem- 
ber is to admit air to the suds once or twice 
daily at least, a? carbonic acid forms and must 
be got rid of.

A city park commissioner suggests the plan 
that the people of San Francisco plant poppy 

plants. In the first year the plants should be 
cut back to prevent, them flowering; in the 
third and fourth years they are in their prime 
and in the fifth year they should be dug up 
and burnt. Some other crop, such as potatoes 
should then be grown for a year or two before 
using the land again for lavender. 

The harvesting usually begins early in Au- 
gust, and the yield of oil from the whole crop 
may be 12 lb. per acre; that from plants in 
their prime being from 15 to 30 lb. per acre. 

The value of the oil varies according to 
quality, demand, etc.; at the present time the 
wholesale price for English lavender oil is 
about 40s. per lb. It is only advisable to grow 
the piant for oil if there is a distillery in the 
neighborhood. There is. however, a limited 
demand for the dried f!o w ** rK 

The lavender plant is subject to a fungoid

ment from }seed to flower. It is quite easy to 
produce a grand, crop of beautiful bloorrts i n 
July from seed sown in gentle heat in the carly 
spring, and to obtain excellent seedlings in 
about two months with careful treatment. The 
night temperature of his greenhouse should 
not exceed 45 degrees. The best compost for 
seed pans or boxes is thr^r parts of loam to 
one of sweet flaky leaf mould, adding sharp 
sand to the mixture to the extent of one-sixth 
of the whole. An element in the successful 
raising- of the plant from seed is very thin sow- 
ing. It is well to place the seeds 2 inches 
apart froTn each other in al! directions. An- 
other little point, to notice is not to overfill the 
seed pan with compost. An inch of space 
should be left between the top of the soil and 
the top of the pan. It M worth while to take 
care of weak seedlings, which often produce 
beautiful flowers With ;| good strain of seed 
the grower may expect to get 70 to 80 per cent 
of double blooms and charming shades of

Keeping Pigs 
We hope that 1912 will among other things 
be distinguished agriculturally by the keeping 
uf an increased number of jugs. The Ameri- 
cans keep them on a gigantic scale, and the 
small farmer also does well with them. A pig 
raiser in the United States who lives by these 
animals has given some practical hints to an 
interviewer. He says: "I would enumerate 
the essentials of success as careful intelligent 
breeding, proper care of the sow during the 
period of g< station and at farrowing, forcing 
both breeding stock and pigs to take exercise, 
abundance of grass, especially clover, and lim- 
ited use of corn until the finishing period. The 
difference in weight between the litter ot a 
young sow and a three year old at five months 
is approximately 20 lb. in favor of the older 
animal. 1 avoid inbreeding, and to be safe 
change boars each year. 1 keep a good mother 
so long as she is serviceable ; I have frequently 
nsrrl them until well advanced in years. I 
house comfortably, furnish plenty of clean wa- 
ter, keep vermin away, and send them to mar- 
ket at the most profitable period, it is a mis- 
take to think pig raising a road to money-mak- 
ing if you dislike the smell on your clothes. 
Nobody in that frame of mind ever succeeded. 
The primary qualification for success is liking 
for the pig. The pig is the most intelligent 
animal OTT the farm, and the one most respons- 
ive to good treatment. I have spent my life 
with them and know." Now as the American 
pig is mainly a maize-fed pig the English be- 
ginner will want to know if he too is to use 
maize. Denmark here supplies a hint as to 
why maize- fed pigs in Europe do not do Sf> 
well as in America, where it is observed that 
the most successful raisers stop maize rations 
in the last stage of fattening. Moth British and 
Continental raisers have inclined to give much 
less maize than the Americans, but to give it 
right up to the end. The Danish experimental 
farms now confirm the American method of a 
radical change in the last stage, and they sup- 
ply us with some useful information of their 
own discovery. It is found that any bad effect 
of the maize is lessened if other concentrated 
foods are given at the same time. Thus a ra- 
tion consisting of one-third palm cake and two 
thirds maize produces results of a satisfactory 
character. Molasses in conjunction with mai/.e 
can also be recommended as well as a feed 
composed of molasses, bran and palm cakes. 
The trials made in Denmark with several huilr 
died animals have demonstrated the curious 
fact that the injurious effect of maize is great- 
er in winter than in summer. Sunflower seed 
cake seems to exert the same kind of effect a* 
maize, and with it the same circomstatwi has 
been noticed to the effect that -i$» injurious

inution of wolves on Vaneouvei Island 
and of cougar on the Mainland. The

ly due to mange no longer being preval-

stances were favorable for the cougar, 
hut this is not the case, it frequently 
happens that a cougar will get among a 
flock of tame sheep and kill from fif- 
teen to twenty, and cougkr have been 
known to kill three and four deer with- 
out even eating any of them. However. 
Instead of 104 head put it at r.o h.-ad a 
year, which Is a most conservative esti- 
mate. Wolves are nearly as destruc- 
tive; In fact when there Is snow on the 
ground with a crust upon it. it is qucs-'

work havoc among domestic shi

applying to all species,

Kootenay the deer are said to be • 
plentiful than ever before; and in the 
tnagan where a few years ago their 
extermination seemed indicated, they are 
pOW once more more plentiful. In the 
vicinity of Victoria a very large num- 
ber were killed, and it was not an un- 
common sight for a man to leave town 
in the morning and be back before night 
with all he wanted. Even close to, 
In the "city 'limits of. ■Vancou- 
ver they have been killed, on all the 
IS of the tiulf. the deer are very 
numerous, but small and weakly. On 
the other hand, about 100 miles up coast 
deei used to abound, they have 
.•aree. and It la from this district 
most of the hundreds of deer sold 
annually in Vancouver havo been 
brought. It may perhaps seem hard 
town-livers now and then, but 
the fact remains thai wherever market 
hunters take to the Held, game quickly 
aes almost extinct. If bag limits 
could be properly enforced less d 
would be done, but under present con- 
ditions this is almost an Impossibility. 
With the present stork of de. r. market 
hunting is not so serious a menace, but 
provision must be made for tho future. 
This season the number of deer sold in 
Vancouver has been simply enormous. 
practically every hotel on the main- 
land has served venison. This condi- 
tion cannot continue, ami it mud - 
come down to one of three things: the 
sale must be stopped altogether, the 
system introduced whereby the limit 
can be enforced, and the bag limit It- 
self reduced, or the extermination of 
deer In many parts of "the country

"J t. seems a pity." as the Game War-

men should be after him. There is al- 
ways the same old explanation: 'Me Is

The bears as a matter of fact are harm- 
less enough; the men Who go out after 
them, close to towns, with high-power

atically explottod by the most exper-

little chance for them to escape exter-

come a valuable asset to the district and 
to the province. Although the begver

Dr. WUMdl Cr 

th© Faunmoiuis 



Victorians are to be given a rare treat on 
Friday of the coming week, March I, in the 
visit here of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell, whose phil- 
anthropic work among the deep sea fisher- 
men of Labrador has won him not only ever- 
lasting fame but an imperishable place in the 
affections of all who take an interest in human- 
itarian movements. Dr. Grenfell is just con- 
cluding a series of lectures which have been 
delivered in the leading cities of the continent. 
He tells of his work among the fishermen along 
the rugged Atlantic coast, and the proceeds 
are entirely in aid of his mission, which has 
received the united endorsement of all the 
world. The lecture in this city will be deliv- 
ered in the auditorium of St. Andrew's Pres- 
byterian church. 

The following 'Bit of biography'" was 
contributed by Dr. Grenfell to a recent issue of 
The Outlook: 

In 1883, while I was studying medicine at 
the London hospital in Whitechapel, I was at- 
tracted by a huge crowd going into a lar 
♦ ho ,->f .<N<-*»rm*»v There was sin 

ing going on inside, and 

As I left with the -crowd % 
conclusion that my religious 1: 
bug. I vowed in future that 
give it up or make it real. It.i 
not a thing to fee played, with 

to ca=.i about for some way in which I could 
satisfy the aspirations of a young medical man 
and combine with them a desire for adventure 
and definite Christian work. Sir Frederick 
Treves, the famous surgeon, also a daring 
sailor, and master mariner, who had twice 
helped us at our camp, and for whom I had 
been doing the work of an "interne" at the 
London Hospital, suggested my seeing if a 
doctor could live at sea among the deep sea 
fishermen on one of the vessels of the Society 
for which he was a member of the Council. 

Encouraged by results in 1892. I received 
the loan of the largest of the sailing vessels, a 
craft of ninety-seven tons burden, in which we 
sailed to the Labrador coast to see whether 
among English speaking fishermen of the 
Northwest Atlantic, similar results might not 
be achieved. 

In three months we ha 


Some time 

T heard that, one ftf fifrg- 
eters, whose tfhtetfc di* 

land's famous 

tinctions I jp|^||pijp|Fed Mr. J. E. K. Studd 
was going to speak in the neighborhood, 
I went to hear him. Seated in front 
there were two or three' rows of boys from a 
training ship, all dressed in the same uniform. 
At the end of his speech Mr. Studd invited 
any one wdio was not ashamed to confess 
that Christ was his Master for this life raJiei 
than a kind of insurance ticket for the next 
world, to stand up. I was both ashamed and 
surprised to find that I was afraid to stand up. 
I did not know that I was afraid of anything. 
One boy out of all this large number rose to 
his feet. I knew pretty well wdiat that meant 
for him. so I decided to back him up and do 
the same. 

With this theological outfit, I started on 
my missionary career. What to do was the 
next question. I went to the parson of a 
church where I occasionally attended, and of- 
fered myself for a class of boys in his Sunday 
School. They were downright East London- 
ers, and their spiritual education needed other 
capacities than those with which I had in my 
mind till then endowed the Sunday School 
teacher. I remember being surprised that one 
boy, whom I carried to the door by the seat 
of his trousers and heaved into the street, ob- 
jected by endeavoring to kick, while his "pals" 
in the school were for joining him in open 
mutiny. He got the last word however by 
climbing up outside the window and waving 
a hymn book which he had stolen. 

The next time I arrived the boys had got 
in before me (and out also), and the pictures 
and furniture were not as I had left them. I 
started to reform them in the ways that ap- 
pealed most to myself. Five of us medical stu- 
dents had a house of our own ; we used to clear 
our dining room of furniture and replace it 
with a horizontal bar and a couple of pairs of 
boxing gloves. We were able to lead in these 
things our noisiest boys, so . they learned to 
control their own tempers and respect our ca- 
pacities more. . . . 

My medical course being finished, I be 

nine hundred pa- 
tients to whom we could thus commend our 
Gospel with pills and plasters, without fear of j- 
.', nominational interference.^ Besides this^ve 1 

witnessed a condition of poverty to which 
we had •been quite strangers over on the other 
side. Unable to do on the ship to those men 
as we would have them do unto us under simi 
lar circumstances, we called on the way home 
at St. John's, Newfoundland, and laid the mat- 

ts, .asking. f ox- help to 

himself seeing "nothing to do" the rest of^ his 
time he spent preaching along the coast, xhc 
consequence was that the store suffered very 
materially, for 1 was home next year, and Un- 
people, afraid to handle their money, left the 
whole of their capital in the bank. I don't 
know that the memory of his sermons is a jus- 
tification for his view of what was "most im- 
portant" to the kingdom of God on the coast. 

One of the chief troubles with our people 
was the long enforced idleness of the winter, 
and the consequent necessity of living largely 

the summer 'catch," This necessitated

r c have now four hospitals on that deso- 
late coast — not palaces for pain such as one 
sees in these great cities, but humble wood 
buildings where a qualified doctor and trained 
nurse reside, where besides their own rooms. 
they have a dozen beds for sick people, a con- 
valescent room, an operating room, and an iso- 
lation ward. These places are not only rToSpi 
tals but hotels, places to which any one and 
every one is expected to come in sickness 1 >r 
any other kind of trouble whatever. Needless 
to "say, they come often very long distances — 
in their boats in summer in dog sleighs in win- 
ter. We do our part in the summer cruising 
in the hospital ships, the largot of which I 
serve as captain, and in winter by travelling 
from place to place — moving practically all 
the time, only making the hospital, which is 
kept open by the nurse, the headquarters to 
which we return whenever we think it neces- 

Here are other methods for commending 
our Gospel also open to us, owing to the ex- 
traordinary poverty and isolation of the people 
Lack of experience made us satisfied for the 
first three years to try to cope with the ques- 
tion of hunger and nakedness, by collecting 
and distributing warm clothing, and assisting 
the people in various ways to get food. 

It was not until 1896 that seeing the futil- 
next question. I went to the parson of the 
ity of giving financial help to men who had to 
pay from $7 to $8 for a barrel of flour worth 
$4. and $2.50 to $3 for a hogshead of sail which. 
could be bought at St. John's tor $i^ we set to 
work to find a new sermon to preach on this 
subject. Many of our tnosl piteous cases at 
hospital were "direct fruit of chronic semi-star- 
vation. Thus our people fell victims to.tuber- 
culosis of glands and bones, owing only to the 
marasmus induced by insufficient food. This 
was more especially the case among children. 
A universal system of truck business prevailed 

the "catch" of tomorrow was mortgaged for 

Bpood of today. The people seldom or 

never saw cash. The inevitable results were 

thrif ttessnessv and eventually liope- 

The contention of the trader was 

e men's poverty was because 

catching fur bearing animals in the winter, 
even if the actual -catch," as was often the 
case, didn't amount to a barrel of flour for the 
whole time. This again prevented their chil- 
dren being reached for educational purposes. 
It was long a problem to us what ought to In- 
done to meet the difficulty. Eventually we 
took up a grant of timber land on which the 
Newfoundland Government permitted me 
special conditions, and We started to aggre- 
gate the people in winter by affording them 

1 o tins Wc 

they did not catch enough to support them- 
selves. The answer was that they got enough 
to support at least thirty traders. 

We started a sermon with a co-operative 
store as a text. The people around it were all 
heavily in debt: most winters they received 
so much government relief to keep them from 
actual starvation that the place was known as 
"The Sink.'* The people were almost all ill- 
iterate and knew nothing about business, and 
the little store went through varying fortunes. 
They had very, very little money to put in it, 
and even that they were afraid to put in 
under their own names, for fear the traders 
should find out and punish them. One trailer me denying our right to interfere with 
his people, as if these whom he had tried to 
lead me to think were only the recipients of 
his "charity" existed solely for the benefit of 
his trade. I need only say that wc had now 
to regret gaps in the" prayer meetings once 
filled so fervently by our friends, the enemy. 

Looking at the results of the sermon seven 
years afterward. I find the people clothed. ied. 
Independent, with a new little church building 
and children far-and-away better clad and ed- 
ucated. The movement lias spread; there are 
new eight co-operative stores, with a schooner 
railed the Co-operator, which carries their 
products to and from the markets: the price of 
flour has uniformly kept under $5 a barrel; 
the price of salt has been reduced nearly 50 
per cent., and other things in proportion. We 
have had many troubles owing fcp poor fisher- 
ies, our own ignorance of methods of business,

ft arc Christian men, well aware that the 
best Gospel they ean preach is to keep the 
store lor Christ. As a contrast i sent down 
a young friend from JBostbn, who had once 
been a preacher on the coast, giving him $100 
for his holiday to stay at this first store and 
"teach them how to manage a co-operative 
Store." He was some three days at the store 


have added a small schc^ncr building yard. 

and hope shortly to add a cooperage, as we 
use many barrels in the fish industry. We . 
have gathered' together about this small effort 
this winter some two hundred and fifty people. 
A small schoolhouse has been erected, and 
those who are managing the mill know that" 
this effort is their text from which they are 
to preach their sermon. • 

•There can be no question that the Christ 
would today support all manly and innocent 
pastimes. So to meet the needs of the long, 
wintry evenings we have commandeered the 
two small jails in our district and converted 
them into games, with a library and games, 
which have been supplemented by the impor- 
tation of footballs made of rubber for service 
on the snow. This has become so popular that 
our Eskimo women join the game with their 
babies in their hoods, and sealskin footballs 
stuffed with dry grass have sprung into ex- 
istence all along the coast. 

The toys which we usually credit Santa 
Clans with" bringing from the North, had hith- 
erto been conspicuous by their absence, the 
supplv perhaps being exhausted. Anyhow the 
birthdays of the Labrador children, like the 
birthday of our Lord, have never been charac- 
terized by the joyful celebrations that formed 
oases in our own child life. Wc have turned 
the current of toys back to the North again. 
True the dolls are often legless, the tops are 
dented, and the Noah's Arks resemble hospi- 
tals. But these trifles have made the Christ- 
mas tree on the birthday of the Savioiur no 
less a message of the dove of God to these 
many birthdayless children who thus keep 
their own on that day. 

We have become residuary legatees for all 
the real estate in the orphan children line. 
Some years ago I buried a young Scotch fish- 
erman" and his wife in a desolate sandspit of 
land running out into one of the long fjords 
nf Labrador. Amidst the poverty stricken 
group that stood by as the snow fell were five 
little orphan children. ' Having assumed the 
care of all of them. I advertised two in a Bos- 
ton newspaper and received an application 
from a farmer's wife in New Hampshire. 
Later on I visited the farm ; it was small and 
,„,or and away in the back woods. The wo- 
man had children of her own. Her simple ex- 

planation as to why she took the children was 
worth recording: "J cannot teach in the Sun- 
day schools or attend prayer meetings, Doc- 
tor. They are too far a\*ay, and I wanted to 
do something for the Master. I thought the 
farm would feed two more children." I was 
glad she could not speak at the prayer meet- 
ings. Perhaps after all we grade our Chris- 
tians by a wrong standard. How many are 
losing the chances of preaching sermons that 
need no oratory? Is it one of the causes of the 
failures of the churches that so much- unde- 
veloped capacity remains in the pews? 

in what relation would the Christ stand to- 
day to wrong doing? On our wild and almost 
uncharted coast, where the visits of strangers 
are very rare, many wrecks occurred that to 
say the least suggested to the underwriters that 
no real efforts had been made to save them, 
e were asKea uy j_,iuyu & u«aervv«*****8 
Agency to act as agents for them and fur- 
nish reports in cases of losses occurring. At 
first we declined, fearing that the kind of es- 
pionage which would be necessary would be 
likely to interfere with our "spiritual" w6rk. 
Later we began to Think that-it was aao± nfic=__ 

essary to knock all the spirit out of men to 
make them "spiritual,'' so we accepted the post 
of Magistrate for the coast, and also Lloyd's 

Steaming down a long fjord late in Octo- 
ber, we picked up the crew of a small steamer 
wrecked on the north shore. After landing the 
men for the last boat south to take them home 
we returned and raised the steamer— hauled 
her keel out of the water at low tide, and found 
the only damage was a hole driven with a 
crowbar in her bottom. In endeavoring to 
tow her some six hundred miles south to St. 
John's, Newfoundland, we lost her in a gale of 
wind at sea. and with her our evidence of the 

It did not take us long to find out that this 
blow at unrighteousness had made us more 
enemies than many sermons. We have a say- 
ing that "it is only when you really tread on 
the devil's tail that he will wag it"— perhaps 
a modern synonym for "No cross, no crown." 
So long as the battle with sin is fought with 
kid gloves on there will never be any need of 
the 'fellowship of suffering." Last season^ af- 
ter every one had left the coast report reached 
St. John's that a large vessel loaded with fish 
and fully insured had been lost on the rocks 
six hundred miles north. On account of the 
rapidly forming ice we were doubtful whether 
it would be possible to get at the ship. But 
fortune favored us; we were able to get her, 
raise her, and almost to our own surprise we 
were able to tow her, in spite of December 
gales, safely to St. John's Harbor. The con- 
signee (the same man who had owned the 
steamer we lost, and who had "suffered other 
losses") was found guilty of barratry and sent, 
down to penal servitiude. 

It is said that the world consists of two 
kinds of people, "those who go out and try to 
do something" and those who "stay home and 
Wonder why they don't do it some other way." 
How would the critic look at this? Was it 
•missionary?" ... Is not ibc real problem 
of Christianity how best to commend itself to 
the world? Can it most truly be advocated by 
word or deed? Can we afford to divorce the 
"secular" from the 'religious?" It seems to 
me there is only one way to reach the soul — 
that is, through the body. For when the soul 
has cast off the body we cannot reach it at all.

ing ducks and geese from launches has 
become a common practice. The birds 
are chased from place to place; rifles 
are frequently used when they get wild;

th,. country. Wildfowl must have some 
rest. Thev are not allowed to get it

that they had some way of warning 
other birds to give this country a Wide

gress there. On Vancouver Island the 
Oallfornlan quail have been more plen- 
tiful than ever. Those turned out on 
Texada Island ere also increasing rapid- 
ly and there is no doubt there are manv 
other islands where thev would he a 
nurow. As the bob-White cjual! have 
proven a failure In the Interior, it was 
thought worth while experimenting with 
the Callfornlan quail and a few were 
released In Nicola, where they are said 
to have bred. On the rest of the Main- 
land there Is no change In quail quanti- 
ties. Rumors of caperc&lde being seen 
on the Mainland have come to hand 
from to time, and although most of 
these are unreliable It Is probable that 

a few still survive. A very reliable re- 
port has Just been received that two of 
these birds were (lean a short time ago 
in Baanlohi opposite James Island. From 
Vancouver Island, too, there is good 
news of black game, several Individual 
hirrls and one or two broods having 
undoubtedly been seen and (lie prospects 
for thetl increase being really good." 


For the past year or two, owing to 
conflict between the provincial and the 
dominion governments, over fishery tnat- 
teraj and the subsequent repeal of the 
provisions as to trout fishing seasons 1" 
the Provincial Game Act. the British 
Columbia department last year collected 
the non-resiilent angler's licenses. Now. 
howe-wr, that there Is- a prospect of 
these matters being brought to n satis- 
factory conclusion, the conservation of 
our game and fish and the formulation 
and enforcement of proper rules and 
regulations in this respect should, in 
the opinion of the departmental author- 
ities, be promptly taken up. 

"Whll<- the preservation of our game 
fish does not rightly belong to this de- 
partment," says the report, "It Is so 
much more intimately connected with it 
than with the commercial fishing In- 
dustry, and It can be so much better 
looked after by a deputy game warden 
than by other officials, that this branch 
of the-flshlng might again be added wJth 
advantage to the game, department. A* 
an asset of the province, the value of 
our game fishing has never been pro- 
perly appreciated. In addition to the 
thousands of residents who take keen 
pleasure In this form of sport; last sea- 
son 120 tourists took out anglers' li- 
censes, and, if our game fish are pro- 
perly looked after this number is cer- 
tain to be Increased tenfold. 

"Every year hundreds of complaints 
are received as to netting the use of 
dynamite, and other wffences, and iuer* 
Is no doubt that some of our streams 
have been systematically netted without 
prosecutions following. As for Instance 
of what Improvements may be made 

by enforcing the laws. Vedder Creek,

stream was actually netted so contin- 
uously that for some time no fish could 
possibly get up, find it was hardly worth 
fishing. After several ineffectual at- 
tempts the Dominion officials were at 
last induced to have the nets removed, 
with the result that afterwards some 
of the best fishing In years was obaln- 
ed in this stream. 


"One of the most important matters 
of all Is the protection of the famous 
"Tyee" salmon that comes to the mouth 
of the Courtenay, Campbell, Salmon, 
Nimpkish and other streams of the east 
coast of Vancouver Island. Every year 
people come from all parts of the world 
especially for these fish, and numbers 
of our own residents also take great 
pleasure in the sport. Laat year, on 
one day alone, 53 boats crowded with 
rod fishermen, were at the mouth of the 
Campbell river, besides many otherB 
at the other above named streams. Each 
year these fish have shown steadily de- 
creasing numbers and under present 
conditions it can only be a year or two 
before there will be no good fishing left. 
Indeed this year some of the tourists 
gave It up in disgust. It is hard to 
estimate the enormous asset that this 
fishing might be to the province, and 
when it Is considered that there are no 
other ealmon in the world to be compar- 
ed with the Tyee for size, or up to a few 
years ago, for number, some idea Of Its 
value may be arrived at. Although 
many fish were formerly caught on the 
rod, their number is a mere bagatelle 
compared with that of those taken by 
seines, and it is this latter fishing meth- 
od that does the damage. Two years 
ago as many as 1400 Tyees were taken 
In this manner in a single haul. They 
probably weighed 5«,000 pounds or a 
matter of 28 tons. 

: I>uring each your n iiuwitrat i>t th*M 

seine licenses are issued and In many 
cases these have been sub-let to Japan- 
ese He hr in en. It waa on account of 

these seines that many people abandoned 
rod-fishing last season. It is therefore 
imperative that these seines be abolish- 
ed, or that alternatively we make up our 
minds to witness the complete annihil- 
ation of this fishing, not only for sport- 
ing, but also for commercial purposes. 
Even if the Tvee were a first class can- 
ning fish it would be bad enough, but 
owing to its light colored flesh this is 
not the case, and what the Dominion 
government receives from its seining 
leases, or the profit the two canneries 
using these fish make it is not worth 
considering in comparison with what tho 
province might get from them as a 
sporting fish. 


"With regard to the Dominion statutes 
regarding trout fishing, according to 
these, the open season on the coast Is 
from March 26 (east of the 120th mer- 
idian. Mav 1) until November 15. This 
open season is all wrong. Rod-fishing for 
Steelheads In coastal waters should be- 
gin a month or eix weeks earlier, as by 
March 26 the fish ,begin to get offcolor. 
For the so-called Dolly Varden there 
should be no close season. Again, in 
many of the large lakes of the interior, 
notably Okanagan lake, the huge lake 
trout Is at its best in the winter months, 
and in some of the summer months 
when the open season is in, they are 
spawning In the small streams. To 
make proper seasons for trout through- 
out the province is a hard matter, re- 
quiring much careful consideration. Dif- 
ferent species of trout spawn at dif- 
ferent times, according to the districts 
and to local conditions. It would be hard 
to Snd a month tn the year when, the 
trout are not spawning somewhere In 
British Columbia. ' ' -rr-:f'^j^ 

"Another matter requiring •ttantfa^ 
is to some sort of a bee; Um*L lb eerA

are eight inches in length, nor ma> 
trout be sold under three pounds in

lent regulation If the word 'trout' were 
carefully defined and the law enforced. 
"The Dominion authorities have al- 
ways maintained that trout are a men- 
ace to the salmon Industry, and this 
question is open to argument; but grant- 
ed that they are, there are many thou- 
sands of miles of f treams and lakes in 
this province which are unfrequented by 
the ealmon and these waters ahou^l 
receive attention. Especially Is this 
the case throughout the Kootenays 
where formerly there was some of the 
finest fishing in the province, which 
during late years, in consequence of 
neglect, is rapidly replacing the trout, 
and while sawdust and market flatting 
may have assisted in the depletion, the 
extermination of the squaw-fleb would 
do most good towards brlnsrlng up the 
stock of trout. A hatchery on the Ar- 
row lakes would be a great thing, but 
the squaw-fish should first receive at-

ing with these mattera are made by 
the Dominion authorities. Aetna are 
good and aome are the rarrerse, but 
no matter to which class they belong 
they are not enforced, and thers la gen-

Queer things still happen at sea. Every 
now and then a vessel master reports the ob- 
servation of some phenomenon that defies ex- 
planation in the light of our present knowl- 
edge, and forcibly writers such as Poe, who 
have found the sea a particularly available 
theatre for mysterious happenings. 

In the Nautical-Meteorological Annual, 
published by the Danish Meteor-. logical Insti- 
tute, appears a report from the master of the 
Danish East Asiatic Company's steamer Bin- 
tang, Captain Gabe, of a singular luminous 
phenomenon observed on the surface of the 
water when the ship was passing through the 
Strait of Malacca in June, 1001). Al 3 a.m., 
fune 19. he was roused by the second mate 
and went on the bridge, where the mate had 
been watching the phenomenon for some min- 
utes. The latter reported that he first saw 
light-wayes traveling in the water from west 
to east. Gradually the light-waves took the 
form of long arms issuing from a centre, 
around which the whole system appeared to 
1^! aic. The centre, which seemed to lie on the 
horizon— the other half of the system not be- 
isible — moved from right astern to the 

die captain came on

_.a beam. 
, the phenomenon. resembled the beams of 

• a revolving light, with a pretty fast rotation; 
the light itself not being visible. 

The system moved forward, decreasing in 
brilliancy and in speed of rotation, and at last 
disappeared-wjieu the centre was right ahead. 
The phenomenon lasted about fifteen minutes. 

The system was perfectly regular, the 
breadth of the rays along the side of the shiy 
being about -i\ feet, and that of the interven- 
ing spaces twice as much. The light was evi- 
dently in the water, as it did not light up the 
deck "nor the side of the ship more than the 
common phosphorescence of the sea. of which 
there was a good deal. The rays were curved 
with their concavity in the direction of the rota- 

The captain was especially struck by the 
fact that the larger spots of phosphorescence 
in the sea appeared to light up more brigh'.ly 
as the rays reached them, and to fade out in the 
dark intervals. When the centre was right 
d.c.-UM the rotation was SO fast that the rays 
passed about mice a second. When the rays 
were no longer visible the bigger spots of 
phosphorescence for sonic time lighted up at 
regular intervals, as if they were still passed 
by the rays. Gradually this decreased, and 
the. phosphorescence shone as' usual in the bow- 
water and along the vessel's side. The look- 
out and the helmsman also observed the phe- 

The Danish Meteorological Institute has 
collected a few reports of other observations 
somewhat similar to the above. A similar case, 
was reported in the Annalen der Hydrographie 
und maritimen Metcorologic, 1899, p. 483, as 
follows. On November 21, 1897. the German 
ship Arethusa encountered a curious illumin- 
ation of the sea after midnight, when in the 

Bay of* Bengal, hit. i.|._> degrees N.. long. 96.5 
degrees K. As far as the eye could reach the 
surface of the water shone with myriads of 
lights in a hazy atmosphere. The ship's log 
says: "It was a splendid but also an uncom- 
fortable sight." At 2 a.m. it began to rain, and 
the phenomenon suddenly disappeared. The 
wind was south-southeast and east-south-east, 
its force 4, and the weather cloudy. 

A more recent case was reported by Capt. 
Breyer, of the Dutch steamer Yalentijn. At 
midnight, August 12, 19 J o, this vessel was 
near the Xatuna Island-, in the South China 
Sea. The course was magnetic south, the 
speed eight knots; Suddenly the easterly hO£i- 
zpn became illuminated with a light which 
commenced to oscillate rap'idl) atid regularly;) 
The phenomenon soon passed into a rotation 
of flashes above the water. It looked like a 
horizontal wheel, turning rapidly, the spokes 
being the rays of light running over the watt <■ 
The rotation was against the sun and very 
1 run!. o\. one ray passing every hah" secoudi 
The bundles of rays diverged very little and 
were not curved. The centre could not be dis- 
cerned gs an isolated point. Gradually the 
rays grewxicarer and somewhat narrower, un- 
til" the source of light appeared to be beneath 
the ship- The wateParbuhd the ship seemed to 
be in rapid oscillating motion, and it Was as 
bright as at full moon (the moon had set at 
10 p.m.). This lasted about five minutes ; then 
the rotation recommenced with the centre on 
the opposite side of the ship, Pmrrotatin: 

of the 
rays gradually decreased in brilliancy and 
breadth, and at 1.2.40 a.m. the phenomenon had 
quite disappeared in the northwest to W£St 

fn this case the ordinary phosphorescence 
of the water was not observed. The sea was 
rather smooth and the air clear. The phenom- 
enon was observed by {(he captain, first and 
second mates, and first engineer, and on all of 
them it made a somewhat uncomfortable im- 

Similar observations have occasionally 
been reported to the Meteorological ();;,- .«; 
London by the captains and officers of British 

No complete explanation of the phenom- 
enon can be given. It is well known that in 
manv marine organisms the capacity to pro- 
duce' light is awakened by sudden movement. 
Thus disturbance by the blade of an oar pro- 
duces luminescence in the sea — commonly 
called "phosphorescence." t hough phosphorus 
has nothing to do with it. Also the wind rip- 
pling the surface of th,e water evokes the same 
luminosity from myriads of minute protozoa 
and crustacea. and the crests of the ripples are 
marked with light. The luminous rays seen 
in the cases above described appear to have 
marked lines of disturbance in a sea abounding 
in organism^ capable 'of phosphorescence, in 
Other words, long and regular waves, having a 
svstematic movement of rotation. Such waves, 
however, appear to be altogether anomalous.

Mr. Theodore Roosevelt, reviewing in the 
Outlook H. O. Taylor's new book on "The 
Mediaeval Mind," says: 

"The greatest mediaeval effect upon the 
thought of after time was produced, not by the 
schoolmen, but by works that they would 
hardly have treated as serious at all — by the 
U'.iiin.l s;,, (>l , tJ>»- ' \ ';i„.l,.M..,inliprl ' thp Norse 
and Irish sagas, the Arthurian Cycle, includ- 
ing 'Parsifal'; and modern literature, on its 
historical side, may be said to have begun with 
Villehardouin and Joinville. None of the 
leaders of the schools are today living forces in 
the sense that is true of the nameless writers 
who built up the stories of the immortal death 
fights in the Pyrenean pass, or of the search 
for the Holy Grail. 

"There are keen intellects still influenced 
by Thomas Aquinas; but all the writings of all 
the most famous doctors of the schools taken 
together had no such influence on the re- 
ligious thought of mankind as two books pro- 
duced long afterwards, with no conception of 
their far-reaching importance, bj the obscure 
and humble authors of the 'Imitation of. 
Christ' and the 'Pilgrim's Progress.' In the 
thirteenth century the spiritual life in action, 
as apart from dogma, and as lived with the 
earnest desire to follow in the Footsteps of the 
Christ, reached, in the person of St. Francis

the past 12 months should have been consid- 
erable. Indeed most of the leading manufac- 
turing firms have had an exceedingly busy 
year, says the London Times. A period of 
prosperity is of more than ordinary value here, 
as admittedly the internal combustion engine 
will occupy an increasingly important position 
in the future, and its rapid development neces- 
sitates a correspondingly increased amount of 
experimental work, the cost of which the man- 
ufacturing firms are better able to bear when 
their ordinary business is more profitable. 

The past year has been by far the most 
important ever experienced in the history of 
oil engine manufacture, and this importance IS 
ot course chiefly marked in the case of the 
Diesel engine, or at any rate the Die-el type 
of oil engine. The development of this motor 
has been uniformly progressive, as regards 
both its industrial applications and the techni- 
cal advances which have been made in its con- 
struction and djssign. The tendency with all 
internal cojtnbustion engines is towards the 
adoption of the two-cycle principle, and it is 
natural, therefore, that particular efforts 
dd be made in this direction with the Die- 
sel engine where the operation is much sim- 
pler. During the pa*t year some very large 
■c\ c.le Diesel engines have been installed, 
mainly in electric 7 generating stations— one of 

2.000 to 2.400 h.p. by Messrs. Sulzer Bros, be- 
ing, perhaps, the most notable. Though there 

been some tendency to undue caution in 
ilu- country, engines of 1000 h.p. of this type 
have already been put in service, and this 
marks a notable advance on the previous year. 
The horizontal Diesel engines is making some 
headway in Germany, a motor of this type up 
to 1600-2000 h.p. having been built, and many 
are under construction at Nuremberg. Al- 
though none has vei been erected in England, 
it is understood that there is every probability 
of some being ordered in the next month or 
two, and it is interesting to note that the West- Company have constructed a. horizon- 
tal Diesel engine which gives every promise of 
success. Much progress has been made with 
Diesel engines of the high speed type of which' 
many have been built in recent months, par- 
ticularly for coupling to electric generators, 
and with their obvious advantages it is prob- 
able that they will continue to gain favor. 

En this country the number of orders for 
Diesel engines in 1911 has been remarkable. 
The Diesel Engine Company of London have 
had a very gUSy year, and in addition to 
Messrs. Wilans & Robertson, and Messr. Mirr- 
lees, r.ickerton & Day. who have been engaged 
in the manufacture for many years, the West- 
inghouse Company and other firms have also 
taken up the construction. A most interesting 
feature in oil-engine development lies in the 
fact that several firms arc now engaged in 'he 
manufacture of what is commonly described 

is a Semi-Diesel engine, and both Messrs. Fet- 
ter, of Yeovil, and Messrs. Ruston, Proctor & 
Co., of Lincoln, have built such motors which 
•»v r, ear to bn very satisfactory. Both types 
give results as regards fuel consumption 
which are approximately equal to those of the 
pure Diesel engine, and though nothing in the 
way of large powers has yet been attempted, 
for relatively small engines the comparative 
simplicity and proportionately low price are 
likely to have a favorable influence on their ap- 
plication. The former firm have developed a 
vertical type, while the latter are manufactur- 
ing a horizontal motor. Both engines employ 
a lamp for starting purposes. 

Marine Applications 
Turning to the question of the employment 
of the internal combustion engine for marine 
work, the progress made with the Diesel en- 
gine has been reported fully in the columns of 
the Engineering Supplement during the past 
year. Engines" for at least a dozen tank 
steamers are in course of construction up to 
2500 h.p., and it is expected that several will 
be ready for their trials very shortly, one of 
earliest probably being the boat recently 
launched bv Messrs. Barclav. Curie & Co.. in 
which the engine power will be 2400 n.p. i ne 
large three-cylinder double acting engine, nom- 
inally of Gooo h.p. but actually a great deal 
more, has been completed at Nuremberg and 
already run satisfactory tests, while the en- 
gines of 1500 h.p. and 1000 h.p. for vessels of 
the Hambu rg-American Line and the Woer- 


graphic idea of the life of the Indian 
jungle is given by ihe films taken by Mr. 
Cherry Kcarton, now being displayed in Lon- 
don. Nothing from an ant to an elephant 
seems to have escaped the vigilance of the 
nature watcher, and the moving pictures of 
big game are of a kind which no other photo- 
grapher has ever secured. Mr. Cherry Kear- 
ton is the only man who has ever turned the 
handle of a cinematograph camera on lions 
and tigers in the wild state, but the dangers 
he has encountered are scarcely more remark- 
able than the patience he has displayed. His 
wonderful series of films includes a tiger, 
taken from a distance of fifteen yards, and 
his brother, Mr. Richard Kcarton, told with 
what difficulty this was secured, for the 
beast, after making a furtive and momentary 
appearance, became alarmed at the noise of 
the machine. For a long time the Operator 
was kept waiting, but the creature eventually 
deserted its cover, and its stealthy prowl 
across the forest* clearing is now shown to 
English audiences. 

* The most alarming experience, however, 
which ever fell to the photographer was an 
unexpected pursuit by a rhinoceros. Dor- 
mant on the ground, the animal's back bad 
appeared to be nothing but a knoll *of earth 
until Mr. Kcarton was too close to Hays, any 
chance of safety save in precipitate flight. 
Other films come from Borneo and Africa. 
and among the the most interesting are 
some showing an ourang-outang at play in its 
native forest and a male hornbill feeding its 
mate, whom he ba^ imprisoned in her nesting 
hole lest she should abandon the eggs. In 
another room at the Queen's Hall are exhib- 
ited many of the still photographs taken by 
the brothers, these including birds, beasts, in- 
sects and reptiles. 

A flashlight picture of an African lion is 
perhaps the most remarkable thing in the 
exhibition. The camera had been placed by 
a water spring where the beasts were accus- 
tomed to drink after a kill, and the photo- 
graph shows plainly the lion's look of sur- 
prise and suspicion at the sudden lightning. 
Mr. Kearton subsequently found that the ani- 
mal had turned on the apparatus and done 
considerable damage, but the plate itself was 
untouched. Nothing more beautiful in the 
< v ov of b«jd pictures can be imagined than 
those which Mr. Richard Kearton has brought

Falmouth and Penryn in Cornwall, lie mar- 
ried' a daughter of Viscount Peel, who for 
many years was the esteemed and potent 
Speaker of the House of Commons, and his 
brother-in-law, the Hon. George Peel, is much 
concerned with enterprises in the Eastern pro- 
vinces such as the Trust and Loan Co. of Can- 
ada. Many of the representative Canadians 
who were here last summer met Mr. Goldman 
and his wife, and will watch with interest the 
progress of the movement he initiates in the 
new number of the Nineteenth Century tor 
a better understanding with Germany. The 
time is ripe for the reconsideration of the prob- 
lem, for the sober minded Englishman has 
been gravely disturbed by the disclosure that 
all unknown to him Germany and England 
were last August on the very verge of a war 
which might well have set the whole civilized 
world ablaze. 

England will not desert France — that is 
quite certain. England will not abandon her 
Empire status — that also is certain. Germany 
as we all recall set herself athwart the Empire 
ideas of the Englishmen when in 1898 she re- 
fused tr> admit Canada's right to give prefer- 
ential duties to British goods and in conse- 
quence England has had ever since to go with- 
out a commercial treaty with Germany, and 
her trade is left at the mercy of a year-to-year' 
resolution of the German Bundesrath. ' Ger- 
many has probably learned the lesson of 1898 
and would now welcome a rapproachment 
with Canada if she could get anything like 
France has secured by the Franco-Canadian 
treaty. She certainly would not attempt any- 
thing so mad as interference should England 
make up her mind to follow the example of 
Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South 
Africa, and institute preferential duties in 
favor of the goods of the British. Dominions. 

All this should make for a friendly under- 
standing, but the approaches made by the As- 
quith ministry indicate plainl y enough that 
Germany will not so much as discuss any 
question of the limitation of armaments. Mr. 
Goldman has intimate German associations 
and he speaks what he knows when he says 

t ^ tr> -..; «. ..!._ «... 

"touches the whole question of national honor 
organization and efticiciuw at the root" and 
suggestions of a limitation of armaments

strain of Anglo-German rivalry, the main 
source of European unrest and the root cause 
of war scares? Upon this point Mr. Goldman 
writes with weight. 

lie turns especially to Mr, Bbnar Law, as 
leader of the Unionist party in the House ot 
Commons, and he does SO with el feet as Mr. 
Bonar Law by his first Parliamentary speech 
as leader awakened the sympathy of Germany 
as Sir Edward Grey failed to do. "I can," he 
said, "imagine few calamities which would 
seem SO great as war. whatever the result be- 
tween us, and the great German people," and 
he added, "i never believe in these inevitable 
wars. ,lf war should ever come between Eng- 
land and Germany, which heaven forbid, it. 
will not I think be due to irresistible natural 
laws. It will be due to the want of human wis- 
dom." This attitude has had its effect on Ger- 
many, and one may read many warm tributes 
in the German press to the statesmanship of 
Mr. Bonar Law. 

Professor Schicmann. the Kaiser's well- 
known confidential adviser on ' Weltpoiitik," 
commenting on Mr: Bonar Law's recent Alt 
bert Hall speech, writes as follows in the Kre- 
uzzcituug: "The man is undoubtedly a leader 
such as the Unionists have never had before. 
Sharp as splintered steel, thoroughly well in- 
formed, and master of language without resort 
to pathos, the future Prime Minister of Great 
Britain is a man with whom the world will 
have to reckon," 

• Mr. Goldman does well then to appeal to 
Mr. Bonar Law. The issue of peace and war 
lies he believes in his hands ami the bands Of 
the Unionist party, for reasons which those 
who can take a dispassionate view of the pres- 
ent condition of British politics will hardly 

"The Unionist party," says Mr. Goldman 
"has every reason to sympathize with German 
aspirations, for it endorses most of the essen- 
tial principles of the German people. It be- 
lieves in the tariff as the basis of national life 
it believes in a Colonial Empire as part oi the 
full development of a people, for it has always 
been the great instrument of Imperial expan- 

ii/M< • it h»ii*vpc in fh* Artrtrini* of the national 

interest, because it has always been both prac- 
tical and patriotic. It also believes in the ele- 
vation of the condition of the people, and is 
consequently most firmly pp posed to those 
'low conditions of life abroad which enable for- 
eign and sweated goods to take the livelihood 
from our own workers. Furthermore the firm- 
ness of the Unionist party on the question of 
defence make it certain that no negotiations 
with Germajiy will lead it into the one error 
which would certainly prove fatal to those ne- 
gotiations — the relaxation of our naval and 
military preparations, or an attempt to deal 
with Germany on those lines.'' 

This then is the proposed new basis of 
agreement with Germany : ( t ) That the na- 
tural and legitimate desire of Germany to ex- 
pand her commerce and population into other 
parts of the world should be recognized as far 
as is compatible with vital British interests; 
and that we should express the belief that such 
an expansion would in many ways be to our 
interest. (2) That we should recognize that 
a restriction of German commerce and the con- 
sequent failure to improve the condition of the 
German working classes is of no business ad- 
vantage to us, and makes directly both for un- 
der selling in this country and for a war which 
will burden British industries and working 
classes for years, even in the event of success. 
(3) That as a corollary of these views we in- 
dicate our readiness to assist Germany where- 
ever we can to attain her colonial outlets, and 
give a promise that when Imperial tariff sys- 
tem is established her products shall in no way 
be penalized to the advantage of other exter- 
nal powers ; on the understanding, of course, 
that she likewise will indicate her readiness 
not to discriminate against British, Empire 
goods. English statesmen of both ^parties- 
must take their share of blame for the: present 
unfortunate relationship between .Germany- 
and ourselves, and there is a growiiig belief 
that the time has come to offer a rcftsotiabie 
accommodation with our greatest co^rrterciip 
and naval rival. She claims her "place in tbie

mann Line respectively have both gone 
through severe trials. In Sweden, Holland, 
Belgium, and France large Diesel marine en- 
gines are now in course of construction, wdiile 
the completion of a 2000 h.p. single-cylinder 
engine at Messrs. Sulzer's works shows the 
trend of probable development during 1912. In 
this country the Admiralty have on order an 
engine of 5000 h.p. which will be installed on 
an existing cruiser, and another of 1000 h.p. 
which will be employed in conjunction with 
steam turbines in a most interesting manner. 

As regards oil engines of other designs, the 
Bolinder type has received wide application for 
small vessels, being made up to 500 h.p., while 
in Germany some progress has been made with 
the Junker engine, which it is stated is to be 
adopted for a Hamburg-American liner. This 
motor works upon the double acting principle, 
but it is doubtful if it will be found particularly 
suitable for marine work owing to its great 
height, although no doubt the horizontal de- 
sign which has been adopted for stationary en- 
gines possesses some favorable features. 

One or two interesting installations have 
been made during the year with suction gas 
engines for marine propulsion, the most nota- 
ble being the ITolzapfel, in which an engine 
of 180 h.p. was installed, together with a gas 
producer very similar to the land type. The 
results obtained with this vessel have been up 
to the expectations of the builders, and it is 
probable that further steps will be taken on 
a larger scale. 


That social influettce, in Lite 101m of ii'mli- 
tion, rivalry, or in whatever other ways social 
influence may exert its effect, does play a role 
in shaping the early responses of certain ani- 
mals, comes out clearly in the work of Con- 
radi at Clark University. This investigator 
reared English sparrows in the presence of 
canaries, keeping them from birth separate 
from their own kind, writes Professor J. B. 
Watson in Harper's Magazine. 

The first sparrow was captured when one 
day old, and was reared by a canary foster- 
mother. During the growing period this 
sparrow was isolated from all other sparrows 
and placed in a room containing about twenty 
canaries. The native characteristic "chirp" 
iirst developed. As time went on this was 
given less and less, being gradually replaced 
by the "peep" wdiich is natural to the can- 

The sparrow improved in his vocal efforts 
by this kind of training, gaining the confi- 
dence finally to chime in when the canaries 
would burst into song. A second sparrow 
was captured when two weeks old, and was 
reared in a room with the canaries. The re- 
gular sparrow chirp had of course already de- 
veloped by this time. After being with the 
canaries for a time he developed a song which 
more or less resembled that of the canaries- 
it was certainly something very different from 
the ordinary song *f the sparrow. Dr. Cpn- 
radi says:

Salmon Hatching on a Large Scale 
The value of salmon hatcheries is a dis- 
puted matter in the United Kingdom, and a 

g i many experts are doubtful whether the 

turning down of artificially reared fry is 01 
more benefit to a river than would be the nat- 
ural spawning of the parent fish which were 
stripped to supply the hatchery. < >th.-r people

tried on a large enough scale in this country 
for results to be conclusive one waj or the 
r. There can be no doubt on the point in 
the minds of those who are responsible for the 
welfare of Pacific salmon rivers. In the 
eleventh chapter of his report Mr. Cobb gives 
an account of the output of different hatcher- 
ies, and shows that their work is on an infin- 
itely larger scale than anything dreamed of 
over here. The fry of the Pacific salmon are

period in which to do it than many of 
Atlantic cousins? Moreover it seems not quite 
an invariable rule that Pacific salmon refuse 
all lures in fresh water. Colonel Haggard has 
recorded the capture of quinnat on the fly in 
the waters of Vancouver Island, and Mr. F. 
C. Inskip has described the capture of salmon 
on a silver Devon in the Thompson River. 
The instances of these fish taking in fresh 
water are scanty it is true, but there are some 
And it is worth pondering on the question. 
What proportion of the salmon in our own 
waters ever take an angler's lure? It would 
purse be difficult in the extreme to test cal- 
culations as to this, but it is obvious that the 
percentage of "'takers" in a year's run of fish 
in any given river can be but small. Alto- 
gether it is now possible to make out a much 
closer likeness between the two types of sal- 
mon than could be assumed before, though the 
physical resemblance was remarkable enough 
to invite comparisons.

of that splendid game bird, the ruffed grouse. 
They were young bird- and rose close with a 
noise like a great wind rattling through the 
trees- In the midsi of the melee Miller noticed 
two birds rise and Ely so that their lines of 
flight would soOfi intersect. 

He held on one till they crossed, then pulled 
and got them both. This was really a wonder- 
ful shot, for it was intentional ; mine was a 
pure accident. 

A somewhat singula] shot was made by a 
school boy of my acquaintance only last fall. 
One half holiday 1 had lent him my gun aria*

and he had sallied forth with a heating heart 
in search of rabbits, but also with a wild un-

An interesting report on the Pacific sal- 
mon fisheries has recently been issued by the 
! nited States Bureau of Fisheries (Washing- 
ton Bureau of Fisheries Document 751.) It 
is the work of Mr. J. N. Cobb, assistant agent 
at the salmon fisheries of Alaska, and it con- 
tains what has not been obtainable before, an 
account of the fisheries of the whole coast. 
United States, British Columbia and Alaska in 
the same year. 1909. 'The assembling of _aJL 
the data and material together should be 6T 
considerable economic value. Mr. Cobb be- 
gins with some account of the different species 
of Pacific salmon, whose popular names best 
known in England are quinnat, sockeye, cohoe 
humpback and dog. The quinnat is the big- 
gest and most valuable fish, averaging some- 
what over 20 lb., and at times reaching much 
greater weights. This is the fish which gives 
such sport to anglers on the Campbell River, 
spOrt which has several times been described 
by writers in the Field (most recently by J. 
II. \\\, Field, Sept. 5, 1008.1 To this species 
belonged the 70-pouncler which was caught by 
Sir K Musgrave in 1896. That they grow 
much bigger than this occasionally is evident 
Mr. Cobb says: "One was caught near Klaw- 
ak. Alaska, in 1909. which weighed 101 lb 
without the head." In some rivers there are 
more than one annual run of quinnat. The 
Sacramento for instance has a spring run 
(April-June) and an autumn run (August-Oc- 
tober.) This is not unlike the habits of Sal- 
mo salar. The other four species, of which 
the cohoe and sockeye are the most important, 
appear more to resemble our sea trout in the 
time of their running, June-November being 
the months that cover it. Mr. Cobb also adds 
a note on the Steelhead trout, as it has some 
commercial importance. It is tathci surpris- 
ing to find how big the steelhead grows — in 
different localities the average weight is plac- 
ed at from 8 lb. to 15 lb., while extreme sizes 
reach 45 lb. 

However these things may be it is obvi- 
ous that salmon hatchery work pays in these 
American waters. The scale on which it is 
conducted would suffice to prove it, even if- 
there were not instances on record in which 
Pacific salmon have, been successfully intro- 
duced to rivers by planting of fry. Let us 
take a few of the figures given by Mr. Cobb 
in his tables. The number of chinook or 
quinnat fry distributed annually in the Sacra- 
mento and its tributaries from 1904 to 1909 
has. varied, from over twenty rnUlipna to oye.T 
a hundred millions. The figure for 1909 I 
090,000) is a good deal the smallest for the 
period, that for 1908, the next smallest being 
over fifty-nine millions. In the same scries 
of years Eel River has had quantities of fry 
varying from over five to over eight millions. 
In the Columbia River basin since 1877, 484,- 
518,600 fry (including older fish) have been 
planted, and the smallest year's number since 
1898 has been over seventeen millions, the 
largest over forty-four millions. In the Fraser 
River, British Columbia, have been placed the 
following quantities of fry: Sockeye (since 
1885) 474,610,400 humpback 22,550,000 (near- 
ly all in one year, 1908.) ; quinnat, (since 1903) 
22,897,200; cohoe (since 1902), 29,334,700. 
The total, including a few dog salmon and 
steelhead, is over five hundred and forty-nine 
millions. This is indeed stocking!

The importance of the canning industry is 
well known, and Mr. Cobb devotes a gOO<3 deal 

of space to a description of the fishing grounds 
and the history of the fisheries. Me goes on 
to deal with the apparatus employed, which in- 
cludes various kinds of net. trap-, and even 
bows and arrows. A good deal of the com 
mercial fishing is also done with Hues trolled 
from a boat, and it looks as though anglers 
were responsible for this. 

Each year the catching of salmon by troll- 
ing becomes Of increasing importance com- 
mercially. For some years sportsmew had this 
exciting and* delightful occupation to them- 
selves, but eventually the mild curers created 
such a persistent and profitable demand for 
kinv. or, chinook salmon that the fishermen 
who had previously re>twcte<j their operations 
to the use of nets during the annual spawnilig 
runs, which last but a small portion of the 
vear began to follow up the fish both before 
and after the spawning run. and soon discov- 
ered that they were to be found in certain re- 

Every sportsman, whether he hunts big 
game gr" small — or both — must have occa- 
sionally during his pursuit of the same have 
made — or seen made— a certain number oi 
what I have termed above "Singular Shots." 

By these I mean shots that do better than 
you expect them to do ; shots that stop big 
or dangerous game at a critical moment; shots 
where -you get more than you meant to or 
than you aimed at, or indeed wished for, ( >i 
the latter kind wa.-, one fired by a tenderfoot 
friend of mine, who aimed at a wily wood- 
cock, missed him by several feet, and slight- 
ly touched up with Xo. 10 shot a previously 
unconscious farmer who had been smoking a 
restful pipe "beneath the maple bough.'' This 
can hardly be called a lucky shot, though the 
No. 10 was too small to do any harm to speak 
of, and my friend succeeded in adroitly elud- 
ing the farmer, though he heard him routing 
like a demon through the woods for a long 
time. Some typical "Singular Shots" of this 
kind occur every fall in t lie deer hunting sea- 
son, the result of trusting fools with firearms. 
Bttt there are other more harmless and even 
lucky kinds of singular shots, which have 
come under my observation, and upon a few 
of which I am about to dilate. I have to tell 
of but few shots of this kind at big game. ■< 
in deer shooting I have always practised the 
still hunting method, where the hunter who 
knows his business — if he gets a shot at all — 
gets it at reasonable range, and at a station 
ary mark. Even if the deer bolts, he either 
misses clean (I have made some "singula! 
misses" in that way 1 or disables it SO as to 
eventually be able to 'hang it up." 

I once made a Singular shol at a bear. The 
whole circumstance is vividly imprinted on 
niv memory since it was the only bear 1 ever 
shot in my life Most of rtn friends have 
heard all about it too. Like Thackeray's un- 
happy love affair "there are timc^. especially

A well known guide and myself were 
shooting or trying to shoot deer in Northern 
Muskoka a good while ago, before that beau- 
tiful district was exploited and vulgarized as 
it is now. We were beating a queer piece of 
dense cover called locally the "Frying Pan," 
which utensil it almost exactly resembled in 
shape. It was about ten or twelve acres in 

throats and

formed on the edge of a small beaver meadow, 
stream. Then I saw what the row was about. 
Standing on his hind legs in the centre of the 
meadow, and evidently in a sinful passion, 
was a black bear. Not a bear of the largest 
size perhaps; but a good average bear for all 
that. The hounds were baying him at a re- 
spectful distance, and he was employing all 
his energies to get hold of one of them, when 
1 appeared on the scene. I was armed with 
a twelve bore gun loaded with cartridges con- 
taining one heavy round bullet and three and 
a half" drachms of powder, the best weapon 
in ;ir. opinion to use on 3 run >> : , v ;,, ,b n^e. 
re nearly all the shots you will get 
will be at close range. The. instant I grasped 
the situation I fired the left barrel at bruin 
without delay nr ceremony, but whether my 
hand was unsteady from my arduous crawd 
through the cover, or whether 1 was puzzled 
by the quick movements of the brute — or 
whether 1 was experiencing a slight, touch oi 
that ignoble feeling which school boys denom- 
inate as "flunk." 1 know not. In any event 
my shot struck far back near the the loins, not 
even crippling him. The moment he felt the 
shot he dropped on his four legs, and came 
straight at me. He knew well who had hurt 
him." It is true that the black bear is a woolly 
coward, and would rather run than fight any 
( ] av — but all wild beasts are dangerous when 
crippled or cornered as he was. 

I n,-k-ilv the hounds were animated bv

and best, jumping on his back, and trying to 
sei/.e his neck behind the car. The hear rose 
on his hind legs, and literally wiped the poor 
dog off like a fly. killing him instantly. 

As he did so, I fired, and the big bear fell 
dead like a shot snipe. The large round bul- 
let made a hole you could have put three fin- 
gers into. I had sighted at his chest, but he 
near me that- the bullet had gone high, 
and entered the base of his neck, breaking it, 
in fact eliminating one of the vcrtibrae alto-

had not been shooting with me am! seen this 
happen, I would have some diffidence about 
relating this incident. We were beating in a 
thin strip of cover with a small open space 
between ii and the dense wilderness of tan- 
gled bush beyohd. White was a little behind 

me. and on the other side of the open strip. 
Half way up my dog flushed a woodcock, 

which flashed acrOBS the opening .and was al- 
most instantly followed by another. I was 

tod late for the first, but managed to "gel on" 

to the last one. and drop him just as he was 
disappearing. Me of course fell quite close to

and a long one. too!" "Nol a very long one." 
I answered. "I'm afraid he's cut all to pieces!" 

"Xo. he isn't," shouted White; "he's Hop- 
ping about here five yards from me." 

It was just as he said. A chance scattered 
shot had winged the first woodcock after he 
had passed Quite out of my sight, and I nad 

got tW r o woodcocks with one barrel — "killed 
two birds with one stone," as 4 were. Truly 
a singular shot! 

1 once saw an American gentleman, a Mr. 
Miller, visiting Prince Edward county, Out.. 

Bitterly (lisappoiSfeC he was putting a 
fresh cartridge in his gun, when he was aware 
of a tremendous commotion in a clump of 
bushes just in line with his shot. 

He hurried to the spot, just in time to be 
present at the last struggles of a fine ruffed 
grouse whose evil star had caused him to 
i*ome in for the better part of the charge 
meant for the rabbit. 

This "singular shot" was purely accidental 
again, for the boy had no idea whatever that 
there was a grouse in his vicinity, his whole 
attention being occupied with the hare. Al- 
together, this in its way. is one of the most 
extraordinary shooting incidents I can re- 

But the most singular shot of all, with 
which this short paper must terminate, was 
made by a young married lady from New York 
City, in the wilds of Northern Muskoka. 

She had accompanied her husband and 
brother on a deer-hunting trip. The party 
consisted of her husband, her brother and her- 
self, a young lady friend, and a servant girl. 
There was also a guide from the neighbor- 

They occupied a comfortable shooting 
lodge, not a cabin or shanty, but it was at leasl 
twenty-eight miles from the nearest village 
or hotel, and was situated on the edge of a 
great forest, in which was a fair quantity of 
deer and other big game. 

The only way to get to the village was by 
canoe down a river that ran past the lodge and 

chanced one, evening that they found 
they were out Of some requisites, which neces- 
sitated an immediate trip to the village. The 
lady's husband and her brother therefore set 
out in the canoe to get them. They were to be 
gone all night. The guide was off in the woods 
locating some deer, so the ladies and the ser- 
vant were left alone in the lodge for the night. 
A deer had been &Uol the da^,! its 
carcass was banging up in the little outbouse. 
This circumstances probably accounts for

The ladies retired to rest in perfect tran- 
quility, to be awakened about one in the morn- 
ing i>\ a strange and ominous sound. It was 
the peculiar snarling of the great timber wolf. 

Looking in consternation from the win- 
dows, the ladies could see gaunt shadowy 
form- slinking about a little - tearing, now and 
then, and gradually drawing nearer and nearer 
to the little outhonse where the deer was 
hanging up. There were fifteen Or twenty of 

The lady I am speaking of was 
very frightened, but she nevertheless possess 
ed a fair share of that valuable quality which 

COmmbnIy called "grit." 
She took down a Winchester rifle of her 
brother's and opening the window, with both 
eyes tighl shut and head thrown back as far 
possible after the •'eternally feminine" 
manner of firing a rifle, she distributed seven

The yarn about the indifferent country boy 
being able to catch more trout with his tree 
limb pole, bent pin and angle worm than the 
practical angler with his correct tackle is the 
subject matter of the cartoonist and jok» 
writer. No person experienced in angling or 
schooled in ichthyology will tolerate any such 
nonsense. Of course, accidents happen in all 
places and pursuits, and fishes eo urazv like 
Other animalsi Therefore, some foolboy dab- 
bling a worm on bent pin for perch or sunfish 
may just happen to move his lure at the very 
moment a big trout is excited by fright, anget 
or play and thus attract the fish and actually 
hook it. And there is no doubt but that big t

men know this is the exception, not the rule. 
Inexperienced card players and race track vi-- 
itors have been known to win more than th» 
regular players in odd instances, but let tires? 
merely lucky persons try their hand against 
the experienced players in a series of wager* 
and sec where they'll land in the long run. In 
pugilism every now and again we hear of the 
champion being laid low by the beginner and 
his chance blow. But, it was only a chance 
blow. Trink of the other beginners who hadn't 
a chance blow ant! were whipped, in the first 
1 ound by the champion. 

Anglers are not fond of the slaughter part 
oi angling and never brag of the number of 
fishes taken. They will enthuse over the size 
of fi single specimen, delight at the exceptional 
plav of a certain species or poetize on this or 
that beautiful water they have fished, but mere 
quantity is left for the marketman to g!6at 
over. However, I want to say no bent-pin boy 
on earth can excel any correct-tackle angler in 
the act of taking the greatest number of trout 
or any other fish if the angler could be forced 
to make the test, which, of course, he could not 
lie forced to do, because no angler fishes fcfr 
figures. And I'm quite certain no country boy 
could excel the angler in the art of angling, 
though I admit a clumsy man or boy with a 
hoe may make more points, in billiards, than 
the expert with the cue. Fishing may niean 
the capture of fishes by any means, fair pr/foul. 
but angling is based on more gerjtle condition^

The government of China has not yet

ciindii of people are starving and there 
is danger of an uprising In Manchuria. 

The winter has been so mild In the 
\ ukun, that on February 16th, the peo- 
ple of Dawson had a celebration In the 
open air at which they showed that 
uieii are only boys grown tall." 

Three little boys found »6,000 of th».

course the river bank was the ph-asant-

"We'll follow the bank and get our 
poles — there's time enough,'' said Fred. 
"The grass Is high on the prjatrle and 
no dry that it almost crumbles when 
you stop on it. The sun is like a coal 
of flre, too. It will be lots better to 
fo.low the river." 

- "Here are some poles now!" exclaim-

ber, though! I just know I could sling 
out a three-pounder with one of them." 
"Bettor hook him first! Let's see who'll 
get to the bend first." 

Fred started ahead, and both boys 
ran as fast as possible along the edge 
of the bushes which nkirled the bank

In a speech In parliament a few days 
ago Hon. Mr. Monk said that the gov- 
ernment of Canada would undertake the 
works needed in the harbors of Victoria. 
Vancouver and Frinco Ruptrt. This

much greater sums on tne narbors of

The parliament of Canada has decided 
that the wheat of the prairie3 shall con-

foremost part In the opening up of 

Western Canada. In our own city he 

has built and endowed a ward in the

Some time ago the German Emperor

be overcome. Her ships trade to every

instead of a decrease. Tht mines 
throughout the province are being im-

One sultry day, many long years ago, 
two elevon-ycar-oid boys met on the 
bank of a small river It was long 
past noon, and the sun glowed like a red 
ball In the haze, lis rays casting a 
weird light over the surrounding land- 

The little village of log houses stood 
less than half a mile away. Nearer still 
loomed the walls of a stout log stockade 
built, as wjas commonly done In those 
days, for protection in case of a sud- 
den Indian attack. 

Th» river banks were fringed with a 
stunted growth of trees-, but elsewhere, 
on every side, the pialric stretched as 
far as the eye could see. the Ion* grass 
dry as tinder from the summer heat. 

'Ain't this a regular scorcher of a 
day, Fred?" asked one of the boys, 
throwing i.h.'Kelr at full !c:ig!h on th» 

A il^h darted »w»y, as be dipped hl»

"Yes, It is. -Tohn: too hot tn work. I 
got my work done— worked like a good 
one to do it. too— and father said 1 
might go a-flshing. Here's my line and 
father's new knife. Wo can get g rod 
'most anywhere along the river." 

"Me, too; I'm going." And John ex- 
hibited a stick with a flshllne wound 
around it. "My work is done, but fa- 
ther didn't exactly say I could ao so 
fur from the stockade. He said he whs 
(afraid of Indians. They are on the 
warpath at B1 ¥ Pork, and that's only 
thirty miles from here." 

"Nonsense! There has'nt heen an In- 
dian round here for six months. I'm 
going fishing. There must be lots of 
big ones by the bend now,*" and Fr*l

"I'm going, too!" cried John, Jumping 
up to follow his companion. 

A quarter of a mile below them, tho 
river made a sheirp bend, and flowed for 
some distance between steep. hial- 
banks. It was a place where ftah ltk*d 

got to warn the folks. Here's the old 
wagon trail, and the grass isn't quite 
so tangled. Bend low. John, as low as 
you possibly can run; thjat's it. Now 

For some minutes nothing was heard 
except the rustling of the dried grass 
and the heavy breathing of the hurry- 
ing boys. Then a wild yell of angry 
surprise told them they were discover- 
ed by the foe. 

"Run. John, run! Le K it as you nev^r 
did before" gasped Fred. "I got yon 
into this scrape, «nd I've Just got to 
get you out of it!" 

The yells had ceased, but Fred knew 
Indian tactics too well to believe that, 
they had given up the pursuit. He look- 
over his shoulder fearfully — it was as 
ho thought. A head showed plainlv 
kibove. the waving grass about a Quar- 
ter o2 a mile behind them. That was 
all. was enouch to onm everv

Grandmother sat in her room one hot 
July afternoon. The house was so still 
you could have"heard a pin drop. That 
was because Betty and Margaret had 
gone to the duck pond, and the aunties 
were taking their afternoon naps. 

"But somebody must be dressed ready 
for callers." Aunt Nannie had- said on 
the way upstairs; and, as usual, grand- 
mo*her came, to the rescue, oaying she 
would bo ready should any one Come. 
Old her cap look fresh enough or should 
she put on her best one'.' 

"Oh. grandmother!" exclaimed Betty, 
giving her an impulsive squeeae, "you 
look sweet enough for the King of Eng- 
land. 1 wish he would come to call this 
afternoon to see how pretty you look 
with your lavender bows." 

"What nonsense you are talking. Bet- 
ty." replied grandmother; but. she was 
pleased at this loving tribute, and a. soft 
flush crept over her face up to the howa

Ho the houf-e was quiet at last. The 
elm tree shaded the window from the 
afternoon sun. making the room cool 
and pleasant, and grandmother soon be- 
came Absorbed darning the children's • 

The visitor came in quite unannounced 
—he did not ring the bell as visitors 
In polite society generally do; hut he 
stepped in through the open window; and 
Ihe first thing grandmother knew he 
was standing on the worktable in front 
of her. Grandmother did not move; she 
was not frightened, but she imagined 
the visitor might be afraid of her, she 
was so much bigger than he. But he 
was young, and, like most youngsters 
who have been sensibly brought up, he 
apparently did not Know ths meanins 
of fear. Grandmother looked at him, 
and he looked at her, first With one lit- 
tle beady eye, then with the other. How«~. 
beautifully he was dressed, fit for a 
king, grandmother thought,, and sh* 
wished Betty could see him. HIb dark 
brown coat fitted him to a T, and on 
his light-grey waistcoat were pretty Jlt- 
tle brown spots with a darker one 
right in the middle, like a knot of soft 
ribbon. He wore no : hat. and W» hair 
was brushed up into a fluffy little top- 
knot, which grandmother thought quits 
captivating. All of a sudden, he cocked 
his head to one side, then he Jumped 
from the table into her lap!

No British royalty has. officially occupied 
Rideau Hall. Ottawa," since the Governor-Gen- 
eralship of the Marquis of Lome (Duke ol 
Argyll) in 1878-1883, when our Princess 
Louise was its chatelaine, ami all loyal Can- 
adians in the Dominion keenly appreciate the 
arrival in Canada of the Duke of Connaught. 
whom taking up this great position fulfilled 
the wish of his brother. King F.dward. The 
Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia 
find no doubt their new liome a great contrast 
in many ways to Clarence Mouse and Bagshot 
and the life very different from that of Eng- 
land climatically. But even to such travelled 
and cosmopolitan folk as the Connaught s the 
f.'iscinatiun of change is potent , aBu Sm awCfr 

not. doubt that the two royal ladies and their 
household will thoroughly enjoy their First 
Canadian season at Rideout Hall. The said 
Rideout Hall is not much to look at from the 
aesthetic point of view, and it probably fulfils 
i.v> one 5 s ideal, of a vice^regal residence, out in 
early summer, when snow has given place to- 
verdure and flowers it is not so stern, as some 
of the pictures of it. taken in winter, would 
suggest. When the grounds are en fete for 
one of the famous garden parties given by 
their Excellencies, for instance towards the ■ 
end of the spring >, ,^ on. - th e n -the scen e- " 
full of life and color, and everyone has a splen- 
did time in the open. It is impossible that Ri- 
deau Hall should be otherwise than "a plain, 
large rambling building of no particular archi- 
tectural design." when one remembers that it 
has grown from a house that contained only 
eleven rooms exclusive of basement and attic. 
10 a mansion of over one hundred rooms. 
That represents the difference between 1838 
(when it was built by Thomas McKay as his 
private residence") and iqii. Since the Gov- 
ernment bought the house out-right in 1868— 
after a previous three years tenure— every 
successive Governor-General added to it in 
some, way or another according to his individ- 
ual need of accommodation. It is therefore a 
monument of utility rather than of beauty. A 
conservatory, a vinery, a cottage, residence, 
stabling, a coach bouse, a guardhouse, lodge, 
iron gates and stone pillars. Rideau Cottage, 
where the Govcrnor-GeneraTs private secre- 
tary lives, a gardener's cottage, laundry, etc.; 
are among the many additions which have 
been made since 1807, and I am given to un- 
derstand that more arc being made, or have 
been .made for the Duke of Counaught. To 
get a good notion of Rideau Hall .von .must 
drive up the shady avenue, passing the lodge, 
which is a curious, octagonal building of yel- 
low brick. Opposite to the lodge is Crichtou 
Lodge, with its gables and red roof. This 
used to be the secretary's abode, and it is cer- 
tainly more picturesque looking than the 
square solidity fit Rideau cottage, which how- 
ever is well built and very comfortable. The 
largest room in the vice-regal residence, is the 
ball room built by Lord Dufferin. It is decor-

the famous theatricals that so delighted the 
gav society of his time. The splendid lob

The racquet court, the arm 01 Which is 
used as a supper room at dances, was built by 
Lord Lorne. Lord Aberdeen built the chapel, 
the interior of which is of oak ; it has diamond 
paned windows tinted in soft pink and green, 
is lighted by electricity and seats about one 
hundred. The Princess Louise left her mark 
on Rideout Hall very characteristically. Sin- 
built the studio, where she could quietly pur- 
sue her favorite art. In the drawing room too

design of crab apple boughs. The Prime

the toboggan slide, which many years later 
was appropriated by Lady Marjorie Gordon. 
Ladv Aberdeen's daughter, as her play house 
She used to call it "Holidax Hduse," and did 
exactly as she liked there, finding a novel and 
fascinating amusement in scrubbing the floor, 
cooking, and otherwise practising the domes- 
tic arts. As Lady Pcntland no doubt she 
looks back to those days with many a remin- 
• iscent smile and happy thought. One of the 
snuggest and prettiest rooms in the house is 
the Oval Room, which in its time has been 
used for many purposes, bedroom, ball room, 
study and, in Lady Aberdeen's time a most 
"homey" schoolroom. One can imagine Prin- 
cess Patricia appropriating the bright and 
sunny room for her special and particular lair. 
The gardens of Rideau Hall are very beaut i 
,*ui, and there is a splendid cricket ground, the 
finest in all Canada, which is set apart for the 
use of the Ottawa Cricket Club. Ottawa is 
quite cosmopolitan as regards society. It has 
two social seasons — the early winter season 
before Christmas and the season when Parlia- 
ment is sitting. At these times there is al- 
ways a great amount of gaiety, dances, musi- 
cal parties, skating and tobogganing parties 
in the afternoons or at night by moonlight or 

A State Ball is usually given after Easter 
afid a series of garden parties during the early 
summer, before the great exodus of society 
to* the mountains and elsewhere. The draw- 
ing rooms are carried out on much the same 
scale as those at the Dublin Vice- regal Court 

The officiaii duties of Canada's Royal lead- 
ing lady and her interesting daughter, as may 
be realized from the above brief resume of 
society's doings in Ottawa are none o| the 
lightest, but full of crowded hours glGwihg 
with glorious life. 



My Best Friend 

It is beyond question the time of year when 
6f all other garments the beloved hoin,c din- 
ner gown is that aaost necessary ts our well 
being I pon days of grey gloom such as we 
I 111 London, when there is no pleasure in 
being out late there is nothing more delight- 
ful and restful than to get dressed early for 
dinner, pull up a chair within pleasant- dis- 
tance 01 Lire life, .md skim through the oauy 
paper or plunge into the pages of the book 
on hand. Clothes, as it has been pointed out 
so often, are a matter of temperament, and 
yours will hot allow you to be badly gowned 
at any time. To rest will not imply that you 
nro weari'i" - a wretched ami 1111111: . foi sacque, 
or indeed anything in which you would feel 
ill at ease before friend or encm 

The Essentials to Comfort 

It is, however, very .important to possess 
one or.twoui those soft and comfort giving 
home dinner gowns in which we can r eally 
rest without' a ;trpuble<£»me feeling in the back 
of our mind, that we are doing: .irrevocable 
damage We must. wear good material that 
will .shake out again, something that will not 
chronicle every restful hour we have spent 
unon a chaise longue, or resent each delicious 
moment we have enjoyed scrumpled up in a 
large arm chair. 

Good, soft satin, good crepe 'de. chine, woo 
crepon, soft brocade, are all materials that 
can Im- roadf to look lovely, and since wc can 
be as gorgvou- a- we please when we are at 
home, it is easy cm-ugh to think but some- 
thing that will be decorative and comfortable 
at ,the same I mm. 

Half-Tones and Soft Colors 

Some women never wear strong coloring, 
and negative tones seem to suit them best. 
They like ivory gowns, soft grey or apricot 
shades, pale strands of color; or perhaps a 
mere touch of Oriental blue, discreetly veiled 
by a layer of chiffon. To them J commend 
a very charming and genuine tea gown made 
of crepe dc chine and sofl little, frills of pleat- 
ed SJttJTE A gown of this sort, v. ith a bit. of 
old lace to trim the front, and a plaque of 
enamel or a large pendant of amethyst-bar- 
oque pear to introduce the. color note, is such 
a charming thing. The skirt must be pleas- 
antly full, but any suggestion of dressing- 
gOWU voluminosity will prevent it from filling 
the place in our wardrobe that is intended. 

Others like quite a smart affair; a blue 
satin Lmpsn gown for example, with scarves 
of lace to -form a bodice or a tunic. Such a 
gown can be cut. it is true, so clevely that 
it will never reveal the fact that it is worn 

tea gown cosset. 

Reason and the Rest Gown 

We all spend our lives upon such different 
plans. Some people rush about from twelve 
till two or three in the morning, dining out 
.^invariably. an ,i going their correspondence 
ten the rest of US are fast asleep. Others 
have coffee and rolls in their room, write 
their letters, do their accounts, hath, and dress 
before they encounter the household, and 
numbers of others come down to breakfast 
as regularly as clockworki soothe the entire 
family, and keep going all day by dint of not 
doing anything very exciting or violent. 

It is evident that many natures prefer 
Spasms Of energy, but some time and some- 
how we find that "rcculer pour mieux sauter" 
applies to 11s all. Nobody can go on forever 
wuhom rest of mind and body, or if they do 
u for a period they are apt to suffer for it, or 
perhaps their friends suffer even more. The 
restless person communicates his lack of re- 
pose all too easily; and if there is one thing 
more disturbing than another it is to stay 
with a 'friend who never reads anything, but 
who sucks up all her information from those 
round about her. It is like living with a 

Those who live in the country can get rest 
if they want it. In towns and cities it is less 
easy, unless one leads a hermit life. The 
proper study for mankind is man, and the 
process involves going out and about, and the 
more the interest grows the greater becomes 
the necessity for keeping a couple of even- 
ings free for dawdling and dreaming in the 
home dinner gOwn. 

The Va et Vient 
Doesn't it seem to you more difficult .titan 
it ever was to keep abreast with all that goes 
on, to see the pictures and the plays, to find 
time to readjust the books that arc in the pub- 
lic mind, let alone those that reach one from 
side channels? It is astonishing how some 
people get over the ground ; they can take 
the heart out of a book while others are start- 
ing the first chapter; they know what every- 
bodv is doing in various ways, and have an ac- 
quaintance with every crank in the kingdom 
— in itself an exhausting undertaking. How- 
ever it's good to know all sorts and conditions 
and it's very entertaining to see how various- 
ly people set about their work in iife.

" — Many are afraid of Go 
And more of .Mrs. Grundy." 

Perhaps "Mrs. Grundy'' is not so appar- 
ent nowadays as she was a few. decades ago. 
Be that as it may, it is an undisputed fact 
that many people do go through the world 
carrying on their backs that. "Old Man of the 
Sea'"' in petticoats, "Mrs. Grundy," wdiose 
querulous voice is ever raised in that endless 
question; "What will people say?" Now it 
is unwise to totally disregard public opinion. 
Very few people will argue about this; there 
are certain rules and regulations to which all 
decent minded people must conform. Rut 
it appears to me that the things which can 
and cannot be done, or left undone, are so 
self'evident that they are almost second na- 
ture to all save uneducated, ill-bred and very 
inexperienced people. Why then do so 
many people walk in perpetual terror of wdiat 
"Mrs. Grundy" will say? It is so certain 
that this early Victorian old Dame will have 
nothing good to say of us if she can possibly 
happen upon anything in the least bit cap- 
able of a double interpretation ; it is such a 
foregone conclusion that she will put the 
worst possible construction upon our actions 
however innocent they may be, that it is a 
mere waste of time to bother our heads about 
her at all. And after all, why shoul dany rea- 
sonable, sane human being be in a perpetual 
state of weighing the pros and cons of his or 
her action. In the light of public opinion? 
We know ourselves whether what wc intend 
to do is right or wrong; if we don't care a 
fig for the world's opinion and intend to do 
wrong well and good; if. on the other hand, 
what wc intend to do is perfectly harmless, 
then no amount of censure can make it any 
the less innocent. Why then live in a per- 
petual condition of timidity? While it is only 
fitting that one should keep "les- covehances" 
yet surely one's natural self respect should 
be the restraining ir«»5ucfiCc i«>! Hit iTiecc- 
echo of other people's opinions. Hamlet 
says: "Be thou as chaste -as ice. as -pure a* 
sm>w. thou shalt not -escape calumny." How. 
true this is I Gossips will gos$ip, , an<J if 

there is no truth on which to found their 
stories, they are brilliant romancers, and will 
find no difficulty in inventing some wonder- 
ful tale to suit their own fancies d'here are 
some people to whom scandal is the breath 
of life; men, too, as well as women, and the 
former are the worSe offenders, for if a man is 
a scandal monger he is more merciless than 
a woman. With these people appearances are 
pvprvthiiirr Thev can "nut two and two tO- 
gether" in away which defies all mathemat- 
icians, so that the result will be whatever is 
desired! They "read between the lines" so 
clearly that they can detect all that is left out 
in the writing, and a good deal more. And 
to such "Mrs. Grundy" is very dear, for are 
they not her own children? "Mrs. Grundy" 
is very good,' she is orthodox, pious and emin- 
ently respectable, but , breathe it not! She 
has a nasty mind! She has a vivid imagina- 
tion, and is she always strictly accurate in 
her statements? I am afraid "Mrs. Grundy" 
is a fraud, and I am still more afraid that 
she has been found out! Some people say 
that she is a thing of the past. If that is the 
case, the sooner she is forgotten the better 
for the world is growing broader minded and 
more impartial, and the motto which might 
with advantage be adopted surely reads: 
"Live, and let live." 


Barley Soup — This failing the right thing, 
chicken or white stock, can be made in one of 
three ways; with milk, with meat extract and 
water, or failing all else, wdth flavored water. 
Take two heaped tablespoonfuls of barley 
flour. Mix it to a paste with a gill of either 
cold water or milk in a clean pan. Now add 
to it not quite a quart of absolutely boiling 
milk or meat extract and water, stirring well 
all the time. Place on the fire, bring to he 
boil, and after it boils add to it pepper, salt and 
grated nutmeg to taste, and let it continue 
boiling for a full ten minutes. Strain through 
a heated fine gravy strainer into a hot soup 
tureen, and serve with fried Crusts, handed 
separately. If obliged to use water only, pre- 
pare the latter as follows : To a quart of water 
add two onions peeled and sliced, two carrot* 
scraped and sliced, a good pinch *of sweet 
herbs, and a liberal spoonful of celery salt/ 
Simmer slowly until the water tastfg stror 
of the herbs, straine off and uSe/,, 
rots, etc., are unobtainable, use

crusts when possibleV and: 
* been used in place of milk, 

of butter to the soup before giving it its final 
boil up. 

Herrings aux Tomates— Take a tin of hei- 
ringlets in tomato sauce, place them (unopen- 
ed) in a saucepanful of boiling water. Bring 
the water to the boil again, and after it boils 
time it, and let the tin continue boiling fdr a 
full twenty minutes. Take out, open, take the 
fish out carefully, scraping them gently free 
from their sauce as you do so. Arrange them 
on a clean greased hot fireproof china dish. 
Add half a wineglassful of sherry to the sauce 
together with pepper, salt and a tiny pinch of 
powdered sweet herbs to taste. Mix up well. 
Pour over the fish. Sprinkle with bread 
crumbs. Place a few bits of butter here and 
there. Bake in a hot oven for ten minutes and 

Curried Tongue— Nearly every woman has 
her own oet reci n e for eurrv so I will only 
remark that (when as we are now supposing 
fresh things are unobtainable) dessicated co- 
coanut can take the place of fresh, a spoonful 
of apple jelly the place of apples, and that a 
dessertspoonful of mango chutney and a des- 
.-^.-..-.-..-.^.-.f,,! AF-raiiinc should never be omit- 
ted from a properly prepared curry. 

Rissoles of Tongue—Mince the tongue by 
hand finely, and to hall a pound of tongue al 
low not quite half a pint of sauce, made as fol- 
lows : Put an ounce of butter into a clean 
stew pan. When it melts add to it an ounce 
of flour. Pr y for teu minutes. Then add 
very gradually not cpiite half a pint of flavor- 
ed water tsce. above) or Lemco and water. 
Cook, sii-rmg all the time, for a full ten min- 
utes after it boiis. Add pepper, salt and a 
little mace or nutmeg or lemon juice to taste 
Let it cool. Strain it through a strainer on 
to the meat, and mix lightly together. Spread 
the mixture out upon a large dish to the depth 
of half an inch, leave in a cool place till quite 
cold, and shape into balls about the size of a 
small tangerine. Dip in egg and bread- 
crumbs, or failing this in a flour and water 
batter, and fry a few at a time only in boiling 
clarified beef' dripping or lard, or vegetarian 
lard as may be most convenient. (Note: See 
'.hat the saucepan is quite half full of fat, and 
that a thin blue smoke is rising before add- 
ing the rissoles.) " Then cook to a ^S" 1 S olden 
hrown. and drain carefully. 

Ragout a la Religieuse — This is a purely 
vegetarian dish, but a very appetizing one 
nevertheless. Take half a pourM of butter 
he-iiis and a bag of green peas. Soak as di- 
rected above. Next morning take half a 
pound of stale, bread (the crumb only.) Pour 
over it a pint, of boiling water. Leave it till 
it is quite soft and most of the water is ab- 
sorbed. Press it free from superfluous mois- 
ture, drain and beat it up till it .is quite white 
and light. Now add to it pepper and salt to 
taste, a quarter of a teaspoonful of either pow- 
dered sage or sweet herbs rubbed between the 
fingers till they are as fine as possible, and 
four ounces of either finely minced suet or 
vegetarian lard. Failing these, dripping or 
vegetarian butter may be used. Add a heaped 
tablespoonful of finely .minced onion, and if to 
K e had a well beaten ess. Failing the latter, 
a tablespoonful of milk may be used. Beat 
up the whole well together, shape into round 
balls about the size of a small tangerine and 
reserve. Fry four ounces of peeled and chop- 
ped onions in two ounces of fat, with an ounce 
of sifted flour for five minutes. Do not let

manv sorts of vegetables as are obtainable — 
carrots, turnips, celery, etc. Add the beans 
and the peas, together with sufficient milk or 
stock or water and meat extract, or water only 
to well cover them. Simmer slowly until the 
whole ingredients are very tender. The time 
varies ; some dried beans and peas take much 
longer than others. Then add the forcemeat, 
balls, and continue to cook for another half 
hour. Season to taste with salt and pepper, 
and serve very hot. This dish is equal in 
food values to either roast beef or mutton. It 
can be served either with boiled potatoes or 
with dressed macaroni handed separately. 

Macaroni a la Provencale — Cook half a 
pound of Naples macaroni in boiling salted 
water till done. Drain off any moisture re- 
maining. Reserve the macaroni on a hatr 
sieve. Put the contents of a sixpenny bottle 
of the best salad oil into the saucepan. Add 
to it as much finely minced garlic as will go 
on the point of a small knife. Bring the oil to 
the boil. Add the macaroni, and tosg until 
the whole is thoroughly hot again. Dust with 
coarse black pepper and serve at once. 

Apricot Tart — Use the dried apricots for 
this. Wash them well first. Then put them 
in a deep bowl, add enough water to cover 
them, put a plate on top, and soak for twelve 
hours. Drain off the water into a stew pM», 
To a pint of water add not quite three-qtjtr*

been used to. any particular ex- 
tent in grand opera, they have 
been common to drama. One of 
the first plays in which a horse 
was used with striking results 
was in "M a/.cpa." an adaptation 
of Byron's poem. The old thea- 
tre-goer will recall scantily at- 
tired Fanhy Louise Buckingham 
in this stirring old drama. jAst- 
lev. the famous circus proprietor, 
at his place near Westminster 
Bridge, London, produced many- 
spectacles in which he employed 
as many as a hundred horses. 
BOucicault, ever an inventor, saw 
the advantage of using horses on 
the stage, and so wrote "The Fly- 
jag Scud" for the purpose. Geo. 
Belmore, a famous old English 
actor, and father of Lionel Bel- 
more, who is a member of Wil- 
liam Faversham's company, was 
a jockev. Since that time the 
horse has been a feature of all 
English sporting melodramas. 
( >he of the great successes of this 
kind Was "A R«n of Luck," and 
here Irving road Rosinat in "Don

and human nature, topped off

"The Girl from Yonkers," a 
bright comedy sketch, will be 
presented for the amusement pi 
patrons of the Empress Theatre' 
next week by Miss .Mae Devlin 
and a capable company. The pioi 
of the little playlet deals with a 
supposedly simple little country 
girl, a demure little miss, who is 
in reality a female Raffles. In 
the. action, of. the. playlet, she 
comes accidentally on purpose to 
the apartments of a gentleman, 
and while there begins to ply her 
thefts, her host being blind to her 
real character. The story is one 
of pretty adventure and has a 
surprising denuement. The 

sketch has been warmly praised 
by critics all over the Sullivan & 
Considine circuit. 

Two young men who exceed 
the speed limit in juggling will be

the coming week, when Altus

clubs at one another at a mile-a- 
minutc clip. They have made sev- 
eral records for not dropping a 
club. One time they succeeded in 
going for two weeks, piaying three 
"times a dav, without dropping a

that mark by just one perform- 

Val and Ernie Stanton will pre- 
sent their clever laughing num- 
ber entitled "The Stolen Shoes." 
in which they will introuuce tncir 
unusually bright wit, unique 
songs ami grotesque dances. The 
Stantons come to the Empress 
with a grist of songs and sayings, 
said to be new and clever. Both 
are also said to possess excellent 
voices, and will sing some new 
and catchy songs. They introduce 
ail kinds of buffoonery in the fif- 
teen minutes allowed them. 

Coy de Trickcy. "The Belle oi 
Coontown." will offer a repertoire 
of coon songs, rendered in real

Lots in the Business District (Known as First Division, 
Townsite of Coquitlam) Increase inPrice March the 5th 

Our Predictions Have Come True 

Those who bought lots in First Division have made in many cases FIFTY PER CENT PROFIT 
cm more Some are. holding them for ihi§J_ncre;is<> Qj more, and others have turned over their 
holdings at this increase. Many arc holding for improvement or the big values of the future. 
Because of enhanced values and of the big things being announced for Coquitlam every 
day we hereby notify the public that ON MARCH THE 5TH PRICE OF THE REMAINING 
PER CENT. Could any long-worded argument be more eloquent than this as to the real 
worth of lots in the TOWNSITE OF COQUITLAM? 

IF YOU BUY THIS WEEK IN FIRST DIVISION you will make from twenty-five lo fifty per 
cent.— as much as five hundred dollars per lot. If you can make $500 easier than this, WE 

The Main Entrance to C. P. R. Terminals will be Through 


Coquitlam Station is just north of it. file only waterfrontage held by the C. P. R. is south of 
the terminals, adjoining First Division. It fronts on the best part of the harbor. The Can- 
adian Northern will enter Coquitlam via a bridge over the Eraser River, at the southern end of 
First Division. You have this last chance to get in on First Division before prices arc ad- 
vanced 25 per cent to 50 per cent. 

Business Property $30 a Foot 

Our highest priced inside business lots are $100 a lot, which is $30 a front foot. What will 
thcseTots be worth a front foot when the city of Coquitlam has 12,000 people? When Cal- 

„ . . ~,i T?^l~~~irs~ U„,l ««Kr 7000 «nr»nlo il-i^r wor*> tjclrinrr anH opHipo- $500 OPT' front loot 

for business lots. New Westminster has today few more people than Coquitlam will have 
within live years, and good business property is selling for $750 per front foot. What has 
been done in these cities will be done in Coquitlam, and let us just discount Coquitlam 75 per 
cent, and then some, and still have business lots in Coquitlam at $1000 a good investment. 

Please Consider These Three Things: 


We are THE TOWNSITE, not a mere Subdivision. 

Lots in the business district go up 25 per cent to 50 per cent on March 5, 1912. 
Lots already sold in First Division arc being held for 100 per cent profit.

Bishop-Elect Roper's Conse- 
cration Today Takes Place 
on Same Day as Did ! lYat of 
Bishop Hills 53 Years Ago 



nni mini a 


Particularly Regarding ihe 


That Dr. Roper's consecration yester- 
day look iiluce on the same day as 
did that of his great predecessor. Bishop 
Hill*, tirty-three yearn ago, may possibly 
be no coincidence, but It was certainly 
a happy thought, and one that may sure- 
ly be regarded as a good omen for the 
success of his episcopate. Dut wlu-re- 
as Bishop Hills was consecrated ID BJngr- 
land and came out to the New West 

chief center* of church lift at this time 
were Victoria and Its neighborhood, the 
Haunich peninsular ttye Cowkhan die-, 
trlc-tj; Nanalmo, CJom6x. and an Indian 
mission at Aiert bay In the north »f the 
Island. In Victoria there wen hut two 
chltrcbes, Christ church and St. John's, 
the latter being an lion building which 
l he bishop ha(i brought out with lliin 
from t>ng)and. There was also a church 
at Esquimau, the dockyard and naval 
Million, one at t.Vclar Hill, one at Met- 
chowin and one. at Saanlch. To thee* the 
bishop uiiunTi iii ilir iirkt, thlrtcs; years 
four new churches, one at Lake and one 
at Saanlcb, In the Cowlchan district 
where there had been two churches, 
three new ones were added, at Chemaln- 
us river, Chemalnus mill- and Cobblt 
Hill. In Nanalmo, a coaling town of 
about 6,000 people a new parish was 
formed, which, however, was short lived. 
At Wellington and Northfleld was found- 
ed Hie PkrlBh of Cedar, which took in 
a large agricultural district. On Salt 
Spring, one of the largest islands of 
the gulf, a church was built and served 
on alternate. Sundays by the missionary 
at Chemalnus. The difficulty of main-

For the past two years we 
have published a pamphlet in 
which is given all • informa- 
tion available about i ; <"< 
George and Central British 

We have continuously 
made public the outstanding 

That there is no prairie 
land in the Fort George Dis- 

That with the exception of 
small areas of open mead- 
ows, the land is covered with 
a growth of timber, some 
light and some heavy; 

That 50 per cent of the 

lanrl ic liorVir coil with SPnd 
~_ — — , 

and gravel ridges; 

That the main rivers, such 
as the Eraser, Nechaco, 
and Salmon, are 
from 50 to 250 feet 
the . bench land 
through which they run; 

That there is an abundance 
of pure water in creeks, 
lakes and rivers; 

That the climate is sup- 
perb; and 

That one acre of the good 
land is worth as much as five 
acres in any other part of 
Western Canada. 

The truth is gpod enough 
about Kort George, and we 
are publishing this advertise- 
ment so that the intending 
settler and investor shall 
know the truth and not be 
misled by exaggerated re- 
ports of the Kort George 
District, whether good or 

Fori George is the "Hub 
of B. C," and the centre of 
an empire rich in natural re- 
sources — fruit and farm land, 
timber and mineral land.

Among the «ongregatlon were Bishop 
Paget'* two little sisters who wert' much 
Impressed by the speaker'* eloquence, 
wheel they reached home they conferred 
together aa to the best means of showing 
their respect for him and finally decided 
to save up their pennies, until they had 
raised the huge sum of two and six- 
pence. This soempd to them auch a 
magnificent amount tha.' th*v might be 
accused of a desire to "show off" If they 
gave it into the preacher's hands. So 
they put in in an envelope and left It 
... fctn door "For Mr. Hills from two 
maiden ladles." 

A number of clergy who had worked 
in British Columbia, were present at 
the special servicti of commemoration 
held on February 23, 1911, at St. Peter's 
church. Eaton Squan;, when a special 
commemoration was made of the. various 
benefactors to the church In this pro- 
vince, Including the late Baroness Bur- 
dett-Coutts, who had the honor of 
founding the bishopric of British Colum- 

A memorial was also made of those 
who had passtd from the ranks of the 
Church Militant to those of the Church 

"Also ye shall praise God for all those 
who are departed out of tills life in 
the' faith of Christ, especially George 
Hills, first bishop af Columbia, the wist- 
master builder who after a strenuous 
episcopate extandlnj; ovnr nearly thirty- 
four years, resigned Iuh charge, ltavlng 
a church organized in three dioceses: 
Acton Windeyer SlllttOe, first bishop of 
New Westminster a man uxuitly beloved, 
who had bequeathed to the church of 
the west, imperishable memories of 
missionary heroism and unflinching

"Wright, Archdeacon of Vancouver; Char- 
les Thomas 'Woods, Archdeacon of Co- 
lumbia, who by means of his eloquent 
gifts did much to kindle a true zeal 
for the service of god: Henry Irwin, 
the remembrance of whose heroic and 
self-denying labor will survive for many 
pentrations among the people of the 
Boundnry Country: Hnrniri Hheldon who 
after several years of heroic labor, laid 
down his life for his flock near Port 
Ksslngton | James TOundas. James 

Reynard, and Jane Ridley, a missionary 
heroine witii a record unique in Ihe his- 
tory of the AnRlican communion." 

The' sermon was preached by the Bish- 
op of Stepney, who pointed out that the 
late Bishop Hills was a remarkable ex- 
ample of the cardinal graces of forti- 
tude, patience, justice and self-control.

fresh from the traditions and associa- 
tions of the Old Country, his successor 
comes to British Cplumbia after .several, 
years* sojourn In Eastern Canadp and 
in Che United States Man> residents 
In Victoria today can remember the com- 
ing of Bishop Hills, whose episcopate 
Was rendered possible through the mu- 
nificence of. that great and good woman, 
Baroness Burdette-Coutts to whom the 
church in this province owes so large 
a debt. Upon his arrival here, the Bish- 
op found just one clergyman of the 
Church of England at work — Rev. Ed- 
ward Crtdge, Hudson's Bay chaplain, 
who afterwards became Dean of Christ 
church cathedral, and who is now Bishop 
of the Reformed Episcopal church, 
Thirty-three years afterwards when the 
bishop, at the age' of 74, went home to 
England, to pass ■. the . remainder of his 
uays ne ten. uemnu mm, r.. to .»v,7 o..*. OJ 
men, and -.the unber of parishes, 

while Ids former 'huge diocese had been 
divided ioio four parts, Columbia, Cal- 
edonia and Koou-nay. presided over' by 
three bishops. In thi words of one who 
knew and loved him will he also left 
behind him "a record for personal sclf- 
sacriflce ami indomitable couragi Which 

will never he forgotten in 


To quote tfh« words of Veil. Arch- 

ii Scriven In a sermon pfeaolw d 

i... I'u'. the plocesan Synod in- October 
of last year. "I'.ishop Hills ruled from 
prla.a territory consisting of near- 
ly 100.000 square-, miles, extending from 
\nv Wesl mlnsli r in the south to Metla- 
tcatls ir. the north; from Victoria in the 
west to r!'e Rocky mountains as the 
eastern boundary. The population was 
scanty in iltos,. days, but the distances 
to be travelled were enormous. Some 
idea of tlie arduous nature of the work 
.,i this great pioneer bishop may be ob- 
tained when we remember that there 
were no railways in those days, and that 
all these Journeys had to ho undertaken 
by means of the most primitive methods 
Of travel, stage eoaclies. canoes, sad- 
dle-horses aud pack-mules, The perils 
and hardships of the old < 'ariboo road 
me historic; and the voyages up the 
West Coast in steamers far different 
from those wlil.'n hOW ply In those Wa- 
ters .and up the rivers and fiords in 
Indian canoes, were full of discomfort 
and not Without their share of danger. 

In all these labors the bishop was as* 
elated by the two great English societies, 
the Society for the Propagation of the 
Gospel, and the Church Missionary so- 
ciety, and also by friends of his own 
in the Old Country! and so greatly had 
the work grown that, at the end of 
twenty years from his arrival he was 
able to see the ncoompllRhmcnt of his 
desire In the division of his un wieldly 
diocese into three*, The Main- 

land portion of the province was formed 
into two new dioceses, Now Westmin- 
ster In the. south and Caledonia In the 
north, while Bishop Hills retained, under 
his own jurisdiction Vancouver Island, 
and the islands adjacent under the orig- 
inal title (which had now become mis- 
leading) of British Columbia. The dio- 
cese, thus diminished to an area, of 

ni'uui. io.GOO mtui*ir? uiiie>», in in fttvL, w- 

terminous with the Archdeaconry of 
Vancouver. The bishop was now able to 
devote his whole energies to developing 
the work within the nartpwer borders to 
which his jurisdiction was confined. The 

tainlng the services of the church In 
all these districts was increased by the 

fact thai tin &. i'. <;. was now beginning 
to diminish and proposing gradually to 

withdraw its grants to the diocese. The 
work was growing on the bishop's hands 
and had to be carried on in face of 
a falling Income. This was the problem 
whicli taxed the energies Of his later 
: ears, and of which the solution was to 
be sought in the development of dioces- 
an and parochial finance. 

Meanwhile the building of the Island 
railway was opening up the country, 
creating new settlements and enlarging 
old ones. But while the population In- 
creased rapidly, the wealth of the com- 
munity did not keep pace. The new set- 
tlers needed all the money they brought 
to stock their ranches and the work of 
the church in ministering to their spir- 
j + i >«t «.»~.<j.. i, , f, ,■■ y»;t' «f ~i| "rc"cr*lcn 

to the means for carrying it on. 

l-'or some years the linanclal difficul- 
ties were very grave; but the bishop, 
now growing an old man. refused to be 
daunted, and when in 1892, lie dually 
laid down the burden which he had 
borne for thirty-three years, he left be- 
hind him a diocese in good trorklng or- 

lle returned to England in No- 
vember and took charge of a. small par- 
ish in Norfolk, under .. bishop who, in 

barrier dayj had been one of his own 
clergy (Bishop Sheepshanks)! and two 

years latei Re entered into his rest." 

Archdeacon scriven pointed out* how- 
ever, iii ih ui-e ,,r his sermon, thai 

the church of England had not been 
without representation in the west be- 
fore the coming of BishOp Hills. To 
quote ills own words — "As far back is 

i 886, the Hudson's Bay company had 
established a trailing post at Kort Van- 
couver in the present State of Wash- 
ington, Which they afterwards moved 
to Victoria: and their establishment In- 
cluded a chaplain whose duly it was lo 
minister to the company's officers and 
employees in the fort. Thefirst chaplain 
wiiose name appears in t he parish reg- 
ister, Is the Rev. Hubert Beaver, and 
te second, Rev. R. J. a tain or, who was 
succeeded by Rev. Edward Cridge." 

A number of characteristic stories of 
Bishop Hills wire told at the meetings 
held at the Mansion House, London in 
connection with the jubilee celebrations 
or the Ghurcb of England In British Cor 
lumbla two years hk>». one • > r these 

was related by Bishop Paget of King- 
ston-on-Thames and will surprise no one 
who knew Dr. Roper's predecessor. The 
Bishop was home on furlough from his 
western diocese and culled a missionary 
meeting at. Bradford' In Yorkshire. It 
was a pouring wet day, and as a result 
Instead of there being a large and en- 
thusiastic gathering of people, the au- 
dience consisted of four gentlemen. 
Nothing daunted, however, Bishop Hills 
ascended the platform and gave his ad- 
dress as prepared. History does not re- 
late precisely what effect it had upon 
•his hearers, but the next day the bishop 
receive-} a cheque for £1,000, ($5,000) 
from an admirer as a token of apprecia- 
tion of his courage in delivering an ad- 
dress to so small an audience.

'!'!;. British Independent Labor party 
held, its annual conference this week at

George H. Roberts, Labor Party whip, 
who visited Toronto recently, and J. 
Ramsay MacDonald, one of the oldest 
members on the executive. A fraternal

Public hearing was recently held in 
Boston by the commission appointed to 
consider the wisdom or establishing a 
,;,. of minimum wage* ^" r women 
ji n.i minors i" Massachusetts. An offi- 
cial of the retail clerks said that In 
i;>.- department stores the wages of 
women Of more than 18 years do not 
»v,nin- more than $7 per week, and for 
persons under 18 years the average is 
about $4. He also asserted that the 
minimum should not be less than $0. 
and that at present the proprietors of 
these stores refuse to employ any per- 
sons wl.u are working in other stores, 
so that any one having employment can- 
not secure a better position in another 
I establishment. 

, '. «triiirB-llnc hard to get a minimum 
wage, while the coal -opera tow are. re- 
sisting the demand. Wages of miners 
vary considerably in different parts of 
the country, and at the annual confer- 
ence of the Miners' Federation of Great 
Britain concessions were given to the 
colliery proprietors. The Federation in- 
' tends holding meetings in Scotland, 
Lancashire Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and 
South Wales, and the opinions thus ob- 
tained will be placed before the National 
Conference of. the miners. The owners 
'have as yet refused to give way on the 
question of a minimum wage, but seem 
inclined to Improve the pay ft the 
lower-paid men. 

"Under V. S. state regulations during 
the last twentj years J30.000 coal mln- 

haye been killed and 80.000 seriously 
Injured. We kin every year more than 
all the rent of the world beside. Both 
common aenae and humanity demand 
thai the Federal government take steps 
to safeguard the life of the miner as it 
has done in recent years to safeguard 
the life of the railroad worker." The 
above statement was made by Dr. John 
R. Haynes of Los Angeles. Cal., a phy- 
sician and well known In ills home city

Organized workers in Canada arc 
taking much pride from the fact that 
Mr. William Hugh Johnston, the in- 
ternational prastdani Of*he Association 
of Machinists, and one of the leading 
labor men of the continent, is a Can- 
adian, being born at W.stville, Pictou 
County! Nova Scotia, on December 30. 
1874. He assumed the executive chair 
of the Machinists' union this month 
after a gradual rise through the. ranks. 
both as a workman and an organizer. 
his first experience in labor disputes 
being at the age of ten years when the 
hoys at the mines in Nova Scotia were 
asking for better conditions. 

lien is a little incident showing the 
many good deeds done by labor organ- 
izations that the worhl seldom hears 
about: Recently Secretary T., C. Vod- 
... n. of Typographical union No. ill 
passed away. When an investigation 
*f viIm nffnlr" was made it was found 
thai Voddeti's home, for which he had 
been paying for some years, still carried 
n mortgage of $700. A Toronto sub 
writes 'that Big ".rumlm" Stevenson 
started down the line and talked to the 
boys, with the result that the members 
of No. 91 came across with enough 
money to clear up the mortgage, pay^ all 
the funeral expenses ann turned »wi 
oyer to Mrs. Vodder, who also rtccived 
the mortuary benefit untouched. 

If you work for a man, In heaven's 
name wmk for him. If he pays you 
wages that supply your bread and but- 
ler, work for him. speak well of him. 
think well of him, stand by him, and 
stand by the institution he represents. 
If put to the pinch an ounce of loyal- 
iv i^ worth fi pound Oi c.cvcrr.csrt. 1* 
you must vilify, condemn him and 
eternally disparage him, why, resign 
your position and. When you are out- 
side, DAMM to your heart's content. 
But, I pray you. so long as you are 
part of an Institution do not condemn 
It; not that you will Injure the institu- 
tion — not, that — but when you disparage 
the concern of which you are a part you 
disparage yourself." — Kddie. Hubbard. 
Good advice. Moral. — If you live in a 
country, patronize the industries of that, 
country and build It up. 

The agreement of the Toronto Typo- 
graphical union with the Newspaper 
Publishers' association, Which is a sep- 
arate agreement from what Is known 
a8 the book anil Job offices, expires this 
year on June 30, and will be an impor-

part of it is— we have something to show him. 
WE HAVE BEEN HEARING A LOT lately about new automo- 
bile features, mostly qliesHots of detail. A few yeais «ge; you 
remember, there were radical differences m design and appear- 
ance Great difference in price, too! People were actually -m* 
quandary as to what car to buy. They liked one car, but nobody 
knew whether its design would really work when it got the hard 

knocks of- service. So they hesitated ■ ^f^tZtZ^c 
and coming down. Naturally, people said, Well wait tor the 
Kthe right stuff at a right price." How well they were re-

prestige ever since. 

swung, angular bodies have gone into disuse. We hear very little 
of tworCVCle motors. Planetary transmission has been tried arid 

found wanting until not a single good car uses it today. 1 QU 1! 
find it only in those "tinny" little cars which on their appearance 
and record are useful for a few months and then doomed to an 
early retirement to that haven of invalid cars-the repair shop- 
where the owner pays the bills. 
peared W good cars are verv similar in their elementary design 
todav Differences are in quality and in that wonderful question 
of endurance and reliability which is deeper than any appearance 
3 Sere's an interesting thing: Watch out to see how many cars" lr 
the show today have the nerve to point to their record and reputa- 
tion as their great sales argument. And how many are busy ex- 
plaining certain slight changes ,most of which on the face of it are 
corrections of admitted mistakes, as the reason why you should 
be induced to buv them. When you get that difference hxed m 
your mind you have reached the great difference between good 
and poor cars. 
WE WISH TO EMPHASIZE this point. There will be others 
who will attempt to obscure it. The one great and salient reason 
governing what car you should buy today is what that car has 
done Not what immediate changes may or may not make it 
capable of doing. But what it has done and what you can he 
certain it will do. Buying an automobile today need be no gam- 
ble. You can know beyond any doubt what you are getting and 
that yoti will get your" money's worth, if you wish, you- could

ybu would pay ahiply for them, too. But if you want only the 
best—vou can get that easily. 
cars offer incomparable value is borne in upon us when we have 
seen everything other makers have to alter. Out situation is dif- 
ferent from theirs. We are under no compulsion to aptogize. 
We have no mistakes to correct with considerable changes. \\ e 
depend upon no novelties to win your consideration and approval. 
No' "Gentlemen," we say, as we make our bow in the show, 
"our cars are practically unchanged. Every feature is tried and 
true. They are the greatest values in the automobile market. 
We know it and you can prove it.'* 
EVERY FEATURE IN E-M-F "30" and FLANDERS "20" cars 
is a proven and widely-accepted practice in the best automobile 
engineering. We led, others followed and proved that we were 
right. There is not a single method of automobile manufacture 
better than we use in our cars. 1 I any is ever developed, we will 
use it, be assured of that, and when we do use it we will use it 
TAKE SELF-STARTERS, lor example. Theoretically the self- 
starter is an advantage. We receive probably a dozen letters a 
day on self-starters and we answer them all just the same way. 
We do not recommend any self-starters because there is none to 
be recommended. We arc experimenting with them, and when 
we get one which is practicable, we will put it on our cars and it 
will fit any previous cars we ever put out. 
as they are today? Of course, there are various types, but did 

you ever get down to "brass tacks" on the whole proposition? 
\sk some friend of yours what the Glidden Tour did to self-start- 
ers One of the most familiar and amusing things about the 
whole tour was the sight of drivers cranking away diligently, 
trying to start the so-called -.self-starting cars. _ 1 he ^ st * rt " 
ers, when put to the test of touring, simply didn't work. Another 
type introduces into the cylinders an explosive mixture more 
powerful than dynamite. Certain ear manufacturers have adopt- 
ed it We tried' it experimentally. What was the result? 1 he 
tremendous impact of that explosion on a still motor resulted m 
a v a it deal of hearing trouble. No bearings could stand t..c strain, 
So we are still experimenting and the other manufacture, is busy 
replacing bearings torn out by the self-starter. Take our won* 
for it, when self-starters are right, they will be on our cars. 
Meanwhile, you better wait till they are right. 
SUCCESS for E.M.F. and Flanders cars. You will remember 
how we brought out the three-speed Flanders last spring and 
announced that we had produced a car of the highest possib e 
quality at a price, completely equipped, under $1200. People 

,der-e44«Av we could du it : hesitated » little and waited to see. 

Naturally, we couldn't blame them for that. We always have 
urged the public to make the most thorough investigation of ali 
our competitors' cars. Then, of course, they could'nt help but 
buv from us. So we said, "All right, wait and see."

THE FLANDERS ENTERED a number of the most important 
competitive events— reliability runs, races, hill climbs, and made 
an extraordinary showing. The car began with three perfect 
.road scores in Iowa's Little Glidden; followed it With first and 
second prizes in the arduous Minneapolis io Helena reliability 
run Then cut 47 seconds off the old class record of two minutes 
i lvc seconds in the Worcester Dead Horse Hill Climb, and, after 
various other victories, performed the pathfinding for the Glid- 
den Tour in better time and more successfully than any car ever 
did it before. Finally Flanders "20" wound up the season in a 
blaze of glo?y by breaking all world's records for its class on the 
[ndianapolis SpVedway for 1 to 20 miles. 

ders •'jo" perhaps trie most talked of car of the season. Interested 
' automobilists crowded to buv and our production soon reached 
and maintained the extraordinary record of 100 cars per day. 
Today it you will make inquiry, you will find that the cars are 
operating all over the country with unbroken success. They are 
crivincr practicallv no trouble whatever and any owner will tell 
you the same thing. 

THEN THERE IS THE E-M-F "30," which is our first love and 
which for four years has maintained itself as a car of unequaled 
.ervice The "3©," too, practically sells itself. Anybody who 
ever owned one or had a friend who owned one knows of the con- 
sistent service this car has given. The value is established. We 
are making them just as good ap we always have made them, ana

the' wheel base, as you know, possibly improved the appearance 
of the foredoor body until no handsomer car is seen; made the 
throttle and spark control a trifle more convenient ; added one or 
two little alterations in appearance. And that is all. 
"20" CARS is that essentially they are unchanged. In quality, 
motor ;md transmission, design and everything that goes to give 
reliability and genuine satisfaction the cars arc unaltered; No 
new varieties for the curious purchaser; no weak excuses instead 
of real value. Simplv the assurance that our cars are what they 
always were; and the Flanders guarantee behind them. The man 
who weighs values and looks for his full money's worth for every 
dollar he spends is going Io buy an E-M-F or Flanders. Because 
we offer him certainties. He knows what he is getting.

straight line, smart appearing car which has become a familiar 
figure on the streets everywhere. We have just brought out a 
similar foredoor Roadster of smart, racy, comfortable design. 
The utility car, the Suburban with removable rear seat, has been 
a boon to contractors and others who want a carrier car available 
also for family use. Perhaps best of all is the Coupe at $1200.
