Vital to British Columbia
Development   of   Japanese  Question   in  California
Watched by British Government
London.—The Htatomout attributed
to Hon. Rodolphe Lomicux atter his
mission to Tokyo that, but for the
llrltlsh ting, Canada might bo compelled to discuss tbe JapaneBo immigration difficulty under cover of
.lapnneso guns lu Vancouver Harbor,
suggests that the British Government
is wntchlng with ncute anxiety the
development of the .inpiiiiew question
in (.nil: urn In.
Canada's Immigration compact with
Japan follows closely that between
the United Stntes and the Mikado's
government, us shown in the recent
discussions of the treaty ln the Can-
Adlnn House of Commons, nnd dlpto
mats agree that should California's
action compel Japan to Insist upon
citizen rights oqunl to those granted
white i-accs, thc whole question of
.Inpnncno status ln British Columbia
ns well nn In California and otber
ntntes will be raised in n most awkward form.
The London Times today says:
"Tho Japanese themselves arc said to
.leny their Mongolian origin, but eveu tiie United Slates Supreme Court
cannot pierce the mists In whlcb thc
birth of the Japanese race is shrouded. The real contention is that by
thc adoption of western civilization,
nnd the signal successes of their
nrms by land and _a, they earned
the right to substantial relief from
tho disabilities which beset the Asiatic in other lands. The s tuatlon
is so fraught with possibilities that
acrimonious discussion wt* earnestly
hope, wlll ho avoided. Public feeling
In Japan is strongly aroused, thla ls
made cloar Irom the many indignation meotlngs that hnve been held,
and tbo Japanese consider the lm-
mediate dispute to he merely symbolical of the whole question of tbelr
tnture status In the world. Jnpen
Is thought to be cherishing no impossible dreams o! gaining u foothold
on the American continent, hut she is
leenly resentful oi the implications ot
racial Inferiority, lt is the humiliation that -wounds her proud, sensitive people, and a nation that has
newly won her placo ln the world
Icels acutely that her struggles bave
not yet achieved for her all the recognition which is now due."
It is anticipated here tbat 11 California persists In her alien land legis-
tation the Japanese Government will
be forced by popular clamor to demand naturalizution and other rights
for Japanese on the same footing aB
white immigrants.
The exact position of naturalized
Canadians ot foreign origin is to bo
probed in tho House of Commons
here by n question to Sir Edward
Orey respecting the three Canadians
recently sentenced to Siberia for llie
for evading military service in Russia. Sir Edward Grey is being asked
whether Sir Wilfrid Laurier.la correct
in saying that the British Government has declined tn intervene tor
Mothers' Day
On Mother's Day last year many
letters wore written to their mothers
by men, nnd largo numbers of our
young men were given a red Carnation If his mother were living and a
white one if she had passed away.
"Mother's Day" wlll be fittingly observed, and many young men will be
accommodated with paper and envelopes at the Y. M. C. A., the Salvation Army barracks, and some of the

Extend Regrets
Saskatoon, Bask.—Representatives
of the western newspapers dealt with
Important business at the three sessions held yesterday In tbe board of
trade offices.
A matter of interest, wns the question of an improved British cable
service. It waa the desire of the
western newspapermen to get more
British news written for Canadian
readers to supplement the Associated
Press. To that end a committee of
J. A. Alkin, of the Snskotoon Phoenix; W. M. Davidson, of the Calgary
Albertan, and E. J. McMillan, of the
Moose Jaw News, was appointed to
negotiate in the matter. Questions
affecting the general news service lor

were thoroughly discussed with the
manager of the Western Associated
Press, J. Fred Livesay, and all mat-
ten In connection with the excellent
service now being provided by this

London.—Thc fate ol the woman
suffrage bill was sealed tonight by
the votes of more than 50 Irish Nationalists, who voted against it. Thc
Bill, whereby it waa sought to enfranchise 6,000,000 women, was rejected by a majority ol 4". The vote
stood  266 to  219.
Whether there is any chance that
the present parliament will pass a
bill of more limited character may
be doubted, possibly the Nationalists
fear that lf they allow a womun'e
franchise bill to pass the second reading lt would lead to a parliamentary
struggle which would uot unlikely
end in dissolution of parliament before the home rule bill gets on the
statute books.
Furthermore, the debate todny
proved that tbe militant policy of the
suffragettes has done the cause great
barm as far as parliament is concerned. The conciliation hill of last
session was rejected only hy a small
majority, while the Dickinson bill
which was under discussion today,
and previous bills giving some measure of enfranchisement to women,
have passed the second reading, although they never succeeded ln running the gauntlet in subsequent
Recent police court disclosures of
acts of incendiarism planned by tbe
militants far surpassing in magnitude anything heretofore attempted,
and the burning of St. Catherine's
church at Hatcham today, undoubtedly influenced many members to
vote against the bill. The figures of
the division, showing the deleat ol
the bill, were greeted with a great
cheer from all sides of the bouse.
Neither Andrew Bonar Law, leader of
the opposition, nor A. J. Balfour,
voted in the division. Among the
ministers who voted against tbe bill
were Premier Asquith, Reginald McKenna, Lewis Harcourt, J. Hi. B.
Seeley, Winston Spencer Churchill
and C. E. Hot-house.
Tbe cabinet supporters of the bill
I.loyu George, Mir Rufus Isaacs,
included Sir Edward Grey, David
Augustine Burrill, Sydney Buxton, C,
P. O. Masterman, Sir J. A. Simon
and F. O, Ackland.
While thc members ol the house oi
commons were entering parliament
this afternoon to discuss the wo-
man's sufirngo bill, newsboys thrudt
extras at them, announcing what
seems to bu tho most destructive
work the militants have yet accomplished.
St. Catherines Church at Hatcham,
In the southeast of London, one of
the finest church edifices In the suburbs, caught Are soon alter noon In a
mysterious way and burned so quick
ly tbnt only the charred walls and
a few of tbe pews remained nfter uu
hour, although the flro brigade work
od hard. The tire was watched by
thousands ot spectators.
The interior of the church was like
n seething furnace a    few   moments
after the names were discovered. The
roof lell ln half an hour afterwards
nnd the crumbling masonry crumpled,
Thc church was built in 1893 at a
cost of $90,000. An expensive chan
eel and stained gloss windows were
added Inter.
The heating apparatus in the building had not boon used for two weeks,
aud although the church was usually
kept open all day for prayer, all the
doors were found tn be bolted when
the fire was discovered. Tbe vicar,
the Rev, Howard J. Truscott, when
as'iod about the cause ol the lire,
said: "I cat a a ascribe, it to other
than those de.lght.lul ladies."
The vicar visited the church at
noon, wben he noticed three women
in the building. He supposed tbat
they were praying. He now believes
that they arranged the lire and
thinks explosives must have been
used because ol the rapidity witb
which the tlames spread, Tbo vicar
managed to save the record of marriages and baptisms.
A mysterious attempt, to explode a
bomb was made early this morning
outside the Grand Hotel, opposite
Trafalgar square, where the suffrage
disturbances took place on Sunday.
The hotel was crowded with tourists.
A policeman saw a woman deposit a
can with a lighted fuse in front ol
the door. He extinguished the fuse
and then pursued the woman. He
caught one woman who he supposed
was the culprit and who, when
brought into court, gave her name aB
Ada Warder. Investigation proved
her to be a night prowler who had
often been brought up in the police
court. Sho denied plucing the bomb,
which disappeared while the policeman was chasing her.

Barnes' Circus
Tucke i away somewhere deeply in
the innermost conscioiisneua of every
human being is the remembrance oi
the first circus ever attended. Time
b:.-- wrought many changes, but the
circus has not gone backwards. In
the onward progress, the .*U C3
Barnes Big Three Ring Wild Animal
Circus hai forged tu the front until
it is tbe largest exhibition of Us
-and in the world This big show
will glv_ two full and complete performances, In Cranbrook on Monday,
May   \.tt_.
There is not a village of any size In
the United States or in Canada where
the name of the Al. G Barnes Circus
is not a household word. With the
show is carried the greatest and
most varied collection of animals ever assembled together at one time.
With the show is carried 350 educated and trained animals. Among
them are twenty African forest bred
lions, „ herd of elephants, a caravan
of came.*-., including a baby "ship of
the desert," leopards, royal Bengal
tigers, pumas, bears, jaguars, hyenas, zebras, monkeys of every known
species, dogs and ponies. Every animal carried with the show ls a performer.
Among the many favorites to be
seen will be Herr Louis Roth and bis
twenty performing lions, Major Robert Thornton and bis troupe of performing bears, Prof. Emery and his
heard of Siamese elephants, Mme.
Florlne and her educated Persian leopards, Capt. Stonewall and his sea
lions, Miss Ethel Bonde and ber
trained Arabian Stallions, lions,
monkeys, dogs and ponieB and Mme,
La Monte and ber Royal Bengal
Some Idea of tho magnitude of tbe
show may be obtained when one
takes into consideration that it requires twenty-eight specially con
structed railroad cars to transport

Rate of Growth Studied In Canada and
United States
Tho aspon poplar, frequently spoken of as tho white poplar, Is one of
lho most common trees all over Canada (at any rato In tbnt portion of
tho Dominion east of tbe Rocky
Mountains). In many parts of tbo
Dominion it forms unite extensive forests (especially lu dlstrlots that have
been burned over). This fact gives
It a place of some importance In tho
forestry or (lie Dominion, although It
is one of iho Inferior woods.
Some years ago flu 1906) tbo Forestry Branch of tho Department or
Tie Interior made a careful survey of
tllfl Turtle Mountain forest reserve lu
Soul hern  Manitoba,   on    which    this
poplar is by all odds the most plenll
im tree,    Aa a result of Investigation
on the basis of data collected during
lhls survey, It was estimated that, If
the  poplar  wero  allowed   to grow   to
the age of forty years, there would be,
an average growth, for the whole of |
Hml iiim*. of one i-oid per year on a
fully stocked aero,     Al  lho end of
Ulttl (Ime there would lie standing olll
each  acre about  860  trees, of un u\
a rage height of 46 feel and au mer
age diameter, at  *t*'-  \r*o  abovo the
ground, of .» inches, these would yield
some  40  curds  i'i   wood

Interesting to note that tholr results
co close to the (tgures made oul bj
■ii-' Canadian bui ■*'*      Volume tables,
given al the conclusion of this build
lu shew that trees of the helghl and
diameter given above wtll each ylold
between one twentieth and one twon-l
lv l-l fl It of a COrd Of wood apiece Thus i
th,' S.et acres would give somewhere
between thirty-four and forty two
cords of wood Tho average of the
two amouuts gives thirty-eight cords,
. figure nearly the same as Lhat ob-
taluecLbj tin- Canadians
As There are 66,000   acres   In   the
Purtle  Mountain reserve that are capable of growlug timber, it is a reasonable  Interstice thai    the    reserve
may bo counted ou to produce 66,000
cords, or thereabouts, of    wood    per.
year.     At the low rate of %l per cord
on the slump, this would mean an annual revenue to the state of $55,000.
Or, to take another point  of view  it
would give to each inhabitant of the'
electorlal district   of   Sourts   almost:
two cords of wood per year.

No Milksops
One great mistake made by many
Ot the patents who object to training
young children Is the notion that discipline connotes harshness. It need
do nothing of the kind.
How did you bring your sons up
to bo so obedient and dutiful? we
said. Tliey defer to you in
everything, and yet there Isn't a bit
bt the milksop about them, and they
are not a bit afraid of you. You
seem to be such friends, and yet I
have heard you say you have strong
Ideas about obedience. Ilow did you
manage It?
I made them obey absolutely; I
was strict In my discipline; I tried
to be entirely just, and I loved them
to death, was the answer.
So lone: as your children are persuaded that devoted love Is the cause
and accompaniment ot the discipline
you need not be afraid that they will
drift away from you, tf you make justice one ot the foundations ot your
Begin with your tiny baby and, as
you drill him In regular hablta of eating iutM sleeping, accustom him to

time comes—aB lt may—when we
will attempt a small revolt, don't glvo
way, but lold your own. Avoid Issues as much as possible, but when
they come meet them squarely.
A Sea Sandstorm
With !ls decks covered with an
Inch or moro of sand, nnd the ofllcers
and crow looking as if tbey had returned from a desert trip, the schooner Alvcna, twenty-seven daya from
Columbia lliver, ln command of Captain Abrahamson, arrived In San Diego, Cat., recently. While tho vos*
Bel was coming alone under a light
wind seventy-five miles off shore
and 125 miles north of San Diego, It
becamo enveloped in a cloud of Due
sand. The sea was smooth and the
wind from the south-east, The dust
seemed to drop from the sky.
This condition prevailed for two
days, according to the crew, and not
until Point Koinu was sighted did they
get out of the dust. From that time
until the schooner got Into port tho
crow was busy sweeping the accumulated sand off the lumber cargo nnd
decks, and getting the fine particles
of grit out of their oyes and hair.—

The Mukden Cemetery
A recent traveler through Manchuria gives ns a picture and description
cf the groat cemetery which the Japanese have nenrly completed and
which some time ago they consecrated to the Russian dead who fell
In tho battles about Mukden. In
their precipitate retreat the armies of
the Czar left thousands upon thousands of their fallen comrades unbur-
led. After the signing of the treaty
of peace the soldiers of the Mikado
collected every last bone nnd every
bit of ragged uniform and every broken weapon which the Russians had
left upon the field, and buried them
with soldierly honors. In the centre
of this vast plot they enclosed by a
white marble fencing a reserved space
for those who had eyjdently been officers. Over the graves of tho common soldiers Iron crosses In the
Creek form were erected, and over
the graves of the commanding officers
crosses of white marble. Then as
a pivot to the converging lines they
reared a terrace and on the terrace
built a marble temple, all at a cost of
50,000 yen. When the work was
ready for dedicatory rites they Invited Russian ecclesiastics from Pekln,
Harbin and Vladlvostock, together
with such military commanders as
were near, to assemble for religious
service ln this chapel, where, amid
the assembled men of both races, the
iand was solemnly consecrated as a
resting place for the Russian dead.
We think we have not done badly
when 50 years after the Battle of
OettysTJurg we invite the surviving
Confederates to meet us where they
fought us, and with their Northern
fellow-citizens give thanks to-day for
a united country. But the Japs have
bettered, as well as anticipated, our
act. For within Ave years of the
battle of Mukden they laid out the
field as a cemetery for their conquered enemies, burled them decently, had
religious rites celebrated by priests of
their own faith, and paid personal
tribute to the courage and loyalty of
the men they had vanquished. All
of this without one word of suggestion from outside.
An Agricultural Jubilee
Mr. Marcus Woodward, writing ln
the Contemporary Review for July,
enlarges on the fact that this year
marks the jubilee of a most remark*
able and significant experiment ln
scientific farming nt mounts Farm,
Sawbrldgeworth, Hertfordshire. For
Olty years past corn, and nothing but
corn, has been grown continuously,
on a certain definite system, on this
1.1 rm of 450 acres. There has been
no rotation of crops and no keeping
of stock; year after year for half a
century the same land has been made
to yield corn crops only. A record
kept for the past 25 years shows that
this land has yielded, of wheat, 35
bushels per acre, as against the United
Kingdom's 30 bushels per acre as a
wbole, and Canada's 18 bushels per
acre. The experiment has been
[roved a sound one, Kb success has
been established beyond any quetfon.
It has paid, and tho land has not been
impoverished, rather lt haH been improved and seems good for nt least
another it'ty years of continuous
The system was Inaugurated by the

Every civilized country in tho world
Is now studying the tillage and cropping methods taught by the International Dry-Farming Congress, and Ita
monthly scientific bulletins and reports go to the four corners of tbe
earth. Its corps of instructors Is
famed world-wide, and Its next Convention promises to be attended by
agriculturists from some 50 nations
and official delegations from some 30
states and provinces of the United
States and Canada, upholding the
great agricultural interests of the
North Amorlcan Continent.
Dry-Farming, says the call, la a
scientific term used hy colleges and
authors to differentiate between the
new system of agriculture and the
older methods utilized In the rain-
bells and Irrigation districts. A
special system of tillage of the soil
for the purpose of moisture and fertility conservation is known to be
necessary for at least 63 per cent of
the agriculture acreage of the world,
and the Dry-Farming Congress was
brought into existence for the purpose
of working out these problems and ;
remedies for the troubles confronting
farmers of the sub-humid districts, or
ln districts where there are frequent
droughts or falling Boils. Dry-Farming ls free from mystery ot any kind!
Any farmer on any soil and In any
climate can Increase production, crop
quality and bank account.
Dry-Farming methods can be utilized wlti profit upon every acre In
every district of the world. The
phrase does' not mean the operation
of farms where no moisture is obtain-1
able, but does mean the utilization of
such tillage methods as are from time
to time demonstrated to bo most efficient in ihe reduction of evaporation
aud the production of a practical stor-
age reservoir In the soil, the utilization of m-nlmum or untimely moistures, etc. The work of the Congress
includes He study of farm machinery,
tillage, the development of drought-resistant piants and better methods on
the farm.

Tardy Honors for Lady Hamilton
An extraordinary proposal has boon
made, apparently In good faith, to ex-
humo tbe remains of Emma, Lady
Hamilton, from her grave In Calais
and transport them to Westminster
Abbey, Tho argument Is that Nelson bequ-.-r.thed her to the country,
and sentimentalists think thut some
amends for letting her die in poverty
may be made by burying her nearly
a century later ln the "national Valhalla."
It is „rgued that it was only
through her Influence that Nelson
went to tea again and so fought and
won his greatest victory at Trafalgar. He hnd formed a desire to settle down to a country life, but Lady
Hamilton persuaded him to mako ono
more orutse ln the service of bis

Ism, but a desiro for a little more

as she was In the enjoyment of an

The Psychology of Italics
Doctors of style In the writing of
English .lt-clara that the use of italics
for emphasis Is a positive fault, showing weakness of construction and inability to express Ideas strongly by a
right arrangement of words. Nevertheless, Italics are used deliberately
by Borne forceful writers to gain added
effect and to fasten the eye and tho
mind of tl e reader upon Important
points somewhat as a speaker will
strengthen his oration by vocal emphasis and gesture. Whatever may
be said for or against the use of italics
they certainly reveal the writer's
sense ot relative importance In tlio
things ho has written. He has
selected woids and phrases, and has
given thom special prominence. As
we note their significance wo begin
to know more of tho man behind
the words. His choice of emphasis
tells us what manner of man he is.
His italics are either an Index of his
mental or moral character.

day. On every page some things
are written small, others stand out
boldly In italics. Tako up the book
at night and read the story of the

the Italics are set.—Christian Herald.
