Parcel Posttakes 11 lbs
OTTAWA, March B.-Tlw ultimate
11 pound limit uf weight for the parcel poet went into effect today. Thus
the restriction to six pounds for each
package accepted for transmission hy
parcel past during the months of Feu
ruary, March and April has been removed. The order that has gone forth
from the post office department alao
eliminates the additional fee of five
cents to btt prepaid by postage stamp
on each paro.l mailed for local delivery in places where the letter carrier system iB in operation. However
the insurant:, of packets docs not become operative until the first of May,
as at first set forth, and in the mean
time packets af the parcel post may
merely be registered.
Information gained at the local
postoffice was to the effect that an
order had been received from the department setting forth the changes
in the regulations aa indicated above.
The rush on the mails since the inception of parcel post has not boon
as great as exported. It is expected by the officials tlmt the new department in the mail service will
loom large since thc full weight provision, and that manufacturers ne
well as the public in general will take
advantage of the cheaper rates afforded by parcel post in preference to
those of the express companies.

Americans here
for Tax
liable
United Slates Citizens living ln
Canada and other foreign countr'.os
are liable for payment of tho Income
tax provided lor In the new Democratic income tax legislation, according to a ruling of tho United States
treasury department which bas been
received by the various American
consular agents throughout the country.
That thiB tax, however, cannot be
collected by the United States government nor penalties for non-payment enforced, unless Americans residing in Canada own property in the
United States or return to tbat coun
try is pointed out by the legal fraternity.
"The law imposes a tax of 1 per
centum per annum upon thc entire
net Income of every citizen of the II-
nlted States whether residing at bis
home or abroad,'' states the ruling.
"The status of an American citizen, respecting his liability to the
provisions of income tax law is not
changed hy a residence abroad for
purposes of health, education, amuse
ment or business, for an Indelinltc
period. He may acquire a commercial or civil 'domicile abroad, but If
he shall maintain a true allegiance
to this government and does nothing
Inconsistent with his pre-exiBting allegiance, he is entitled to thc protection of this government ami subject
to Its laws."
The ruling continues that all citizens of the United States must make
returns of thtir incomes for the period of March 1 to December 31, 1913
Immediately, il their income is over
{2,500 per annum.
Penalties lor failure to make returns range from fines of $200 to
12,000 and imprisonment of up to one
year.
The various American consuls ln
the different cities have forms to be
filled out by United States citizens
who are liable under the laws of tb air
country to pay the tax.
Minto'sDeath Canada's

LONDON, March 2.-By tbe death
ol Gilbert John Elliot-Murray- K.-
nynmond, fourth earl of Mlnto, former governor-general of Canada,
which took place Saturday morning
ae Hawick, Scotland, the Dominion
of Canada is the poorer today. In
everything that made for tbe welfare
of that country, the deceased statesman took a keen Interest which did
not abate even after he resigned the
reins of office which he held from
1898 till 1904. A year later he succeeded Lord Curzon of Kedlrston, as
viceroy of India and occupied tbat
poet until 1910.
OTTAWA, March 2.—When Informed of Lord Mlnto's death Premier Dorden aald: "The news of
Lord Mlnto's death will be received
with profound regret by his friends
in Canada. He served tho empire
faithfully and well, both ns n soldier
nnd diplomat. As governor-general
of Canada and as viceroy of India he
filled high and sometimes difficult
positions with ability, firmness and
discretion. His association with this
dominion, both In early and later
life, won for him a well-deserved
placo in the affections and respect
of the Canadian people, whose deep
est sympathy will be extended to
Lady Mlnto and her family.

Largest Ferry in the
World
The old Atlantic has borne on ita
turbulent bosom many strange craft.
it has permitted tbe Vikings' prows
to grate on unknown shores; it allowed the Roman galleys to lasb ita
blue waters with thc sweeps of
slaves; lt carried the Plnta, Santa
Maria, and the Nina, to tbe discovery of a new continent; it saw the
gilded galleons of Spain harried to
the dopths by tho men ol Devon; it
absorbed to itself the frigates of
both Napoloon and Nelson. In the
pnst centuries it tested and triod o-
ecan greyhounds and steel dreadnoughts propelled hy steam and   oil.
But never before will it havo carried so strange a craft as that which
with the Bnout and bottom of a scow
and the frame-work of a sky-scraper,
will shortly cross its blue waters under steam.
This ungainly looking vessel ls the
ferry which wlll ply hetwo.*n Quebec
and Point Levis, carrying on its
upper steel deck, the trains of the
National Transcontinental Railway,
until the bridge to span the St. Law
rence will have been constructed.
BUILT AT BIRKENHEAD
This latest wonder in the world ol
scientific engineering constructionwas
launched about one month ago by
thc Cammell, Laird & Co., of Birken
head, England. As stated, it was
made purposely to carry the National Transcontinental trains across tho
St. Lawrence.
This ferry, coBt about $560,000, nn.l
la made of steel. Its principal dimensions are: Length over all, 526
feet; beam, 65 feet, and a mean
draught of 15 feetf It has an upper
or tidal deck upon which thc trains
will be carried. This deck has three
lengths ol track, each being about
272 feet long, and capable of carrying three passenger coaches. Owing
to the tldo having a fluctuation of
nbout 15 feet at Quebec, the deck is
tnudo to be raised or lowered, even
with the coaches on it. The gearing
is arranged to lift this deck fully
loaded, at the rate of one foot l-ir
minute through a distance of 18 ft.
While making the crossing the coaches are securely fastened by means
at stop blocks on the rails, - and ...
case of a rough passage, and to relieve any fear of being top heavy,
the upper deck can be lowered right
down on top of the main deck, and
on reaching the other side It Ib raiB-
cd to the level of the dock tracks.
At each end of the tidal deck an
adjustable hinged gang-way is suspended, while above the highest position of the carriages on this deck a
promenade is arranged all around the
vessel, witb a bridge platform, from
which all the operationa ol steering
and manoeuverlug are directed. The
tidal deck rests on large gun metal
nuts working up and down on ten
vertical lifting scrows on each side,
supported on columns, the columns
being buttressed against any sudden
strains.
An ice breaking propeller, or cutter, is fitted at the lorward end,
driven by a compound condensing engine. This ls tor the purpose of keep
Ing the passage open during the winter months.
Altogether there are three engines
on the ferry, .two for driving the
boat and ono lor the ico breaker, and
the steam for all of them is supplied
by eli;ht monstrous, single ended, cylindrical boilers. Some Idea of th-!
size of these boilers may he imagined
when lt is known that each one o'
thom ls larger than an ordinary English yard Or shunting engine
The propelling machinery consists
of two sets of triple expansion surface condensing engines, designed to
run at 120 revolutions per minute. A
particular feature of these engines Ib
tho shafting, which Is made much
strongor tban usual to stand tbo
shock It will receive when the propellers Btrike the Ico during thn winter tripB. Tho propellers nre especially strong for the samo reason, being ml.de of nickel ateel.
When fully loaded, the ferry Ib capable of mnking a speed of IS miles
por hour, and lt Is calculated that it
wlll make the two and one half mile
trip across the river ln three-i|iiarter
of an hour, and tlilB period Includes
the time lor ndjiiHtlng the upper derk
running tbe ears on, making tbe passage and then readjusting the deck
and running the cars off on the other
side.

C. P. R. Pay Big
Cheques
Pay day on the C.P.R. ls an eager
ly anticipated event; and each month
the company pays out over $6,000,100
iu chequ-s, distributed over the system.
By actual count the cheques reach
a total ot 120,000, and this number

the consequent need of more men.

"We do evorythtng in our power to
accomodato the employooB," says
Mr. H. H. Suckling, the treasurer ot
the C.P.R. "There In a great deal
Ol time and work associated with
tho monthly pay dny, antl if we hai
to have it twice a month, as is the
ease ln certain of the stntes—well, it
would mean a lot of trouble, a doub
led staff, nnd considerable moro expense. We have to do it ln Vermont
nnd Maine, which we pasn throng*
nnd which have th? bi-monthly payments, and I can tell you It is work.
In several of the states It is thc same
but wherever It Is found it Is becaus)
state legislators pander to the so-
called labor vote. Our people have
not sought for short term payments,
and in fact, seeing tbat they know
for a certainty that on a corta'n
date, without tall, they will get their
money, they are perfectly satisfied to
have it once a montb. Think of a
ioh of sending out twice a month
120,000 cheques. There was some
talk at Ottawa some years ago of ln
Itiatlng bi-monthly payments, but
the matter was not pursued.
"The single monthly paym.it
works well: it is a certain fixed dnte
which does not vary: there Is a fixedness which gives security; and it
suits all the people with whom tliev
deal. Branch hanks will h? lound all
over the system, close to the place of
work and payment, no that there In
no trouble In getting the cheques
cashed anywhere. 6
"The wages list Is constantly increasing on the C. P. R. A decade
ago the total number of employees
was something like 65,000. To da>
It is ovor 120,000 in all grades of activity. It might be Baid that over
500,000 persona are directly interested in, and look forward to, the monthly pay-day, while if we consider
allied Interests, the indercct relations
sustained one way or another, the
commercial and Industrial affiliations
of the company outside the regulnr
list of employees, we get over 1,000-
000 people here
000 people more or less directly concerned in the isnunnce once a month
of those seemingly innumerable hltn
of paper which are so eagerly transmuted Into bread and butter."

VICTORIA,   B.C..   Mnrch   3.   Wide
spread   interest   has   been   shown   in
the timber royalty bill Introduced by
Hon.   William   H    Koes,   minister   ol '
lands.    Newspapers all qvm the  a

Dnlted Kingdom i<uidish.d despatches
in which a feature was made ol tbe
recognition of the profit-sharing pun
i'i pie in handling public timber te
sources.
The New Vork 'rimes ou a lengthy
editorial under the caption ol "Profits lor Qovernnflenta" complimented
•lie Hon. Mr. Moss ou the idea. The
New   York   paper said:
"The Hritisb Columbia minister ol
lands last week Introduced « hill pro
viling for a government regulation
ol prices on lumber from the public
property, and Using the royalties to
be paid by those working the timber
lands in proportion to the prices.
The lumbermen are said to approve
the idea, and the government expects
eventually to get $2,500,000 annually,
while retaining the land from which
tho timber was taken.
"lt is singular tbat the idea ol ar-
socifttiuR prices and profits from the
; proceeds of public resources has been
: bo tanty in arriving. Hitherto the
j problem haB been attacked from the
I point of requiring the excess of profi*
of such exploitation by taxation.That

o the consumer, without reducing
the profit to the exploiter.
It Ib not too late to profit from
the example of Canada."
"Praise for Mr. Rosa and the New
Royalties" is the head under which
several newspapers reprint an editorial from the Mail and Empire of Toronto, referring to the new hill intro
duced by the minister of lands.
The Toronto Mail and Empire says
"The magnificent forest areas of Brit
ish Columbia are a heritage the people of that province ought to watch
over most carefully. Few provinces
or states are so bountifully endowed
The timber should be regarded, as far
as practicable, as a trust to be administered for thte general benefit.
not mainly, as affording opportunity
for prlveleged exploitation. Because
perhaps, the timber resources of the
continent bave been thought inexhaustible—a sadly mistaken view—
this principle has never properly imbedded itself—as a matter of cardinal policy—ln tbe public mind, either
in the United States or Canada. The
output from public or crown lands
undfcr lease has been taxed by the
several governments, but without any
restrictions upon the price charged.
The consequence has been, naturally,
that the users of lumber bave had to
pay the government taxes, and there
has been no regulation of the extent
to which the public, the owner of the
leased limits, could be bled for Its
own property.
"The government of British Columbia, which has been foremost in forestry regulation, has taken a stand
on this matter deserving of the warm
est commendation. It is readjusting
the terms of royalty upon which tbe
leases are granted. In making substantial increases in the amounts due
to the government it is also undertaking to regulate the lumber prices.
The scheme covers eight periods ol
live years each, the royalties being on
n sliding scale. The principle upon
which the measure, which has been
laid before the legislature by the mln
inter of lands, in based on that of
profit-sharing by thc government in
tho exploitation of the timber. It
proposes to obtain for the provincial
treasury part of the regulated value
of the timber without permitting the
amount thus diverted from the pockets of the timhermen to be taken
out of the timber consumers. That
is the true basis of forest administration."
"Public will come in on the unearned increment" Is the title ln red Mr. Ross1
letters across a two-column wide editorial on the front pagv of the Vancouver World" over the signature of
the managing editor, I.. 1). Taylor.
He wrote ns follows:
"The tiiniier royalty bill as ex*

these two principles, Claims Mr. Uoss

"lt i-i possible, of course, that the
bill will tail to meet with the approval of some lumbermen, hut. any
grievances which might be advanced
by those actively engaged In the lum
beting business will he regarded by
the general public ns being fairly
met in the hill. It in merely a measure to protect the interests of tbe
people uh the owners of timber properties. The portions of the revenue
which it exacts for tbo people is
in the nature of ground rent.
No one questions the fact that
profits hy tbe lumbermen were not
great duriug the past year, rather
with the majority of those engaged
in the business was it n question ot
breaking even. It was not true,
however, to say tbnt during tbe past
year the mills were kept going for
the benefit of the men employed in
them. British Columbia lumbermen
measure up well against other business men, but it is too much to expect any body of business men
to keep a concern going without any
regard for their business or for
themselves, and merely for the benefit of the men they employ. There
hnve been years in which much money has been made in the lumber
businless in the province, and there
will be many more. For the lumber
companies In British Columbia to
have closed dawn merely because the
market conditions during the past
year made tbe making of large profits any where impossible would have
been for them to have dealt a Ber-
Ioub blow at an industry iu which
they are primarily interested. Let It
be conceded that business was kept
going for the Bake of the business.
The business has yellded good profits
and much employment during quite
a number of years. With the passing
ot thia blllf not only timber ownerB
and mill workers and men of the log
ging camps are interested, but the
people of British Columbia as a
whole.
"Government revenue from lumber
will increase with a more active mar
ket. As the profits of the active
partners increase, so will tbe share
of the silent partners—the government, the people. Other natural
resources are inexhaustible; the tor
eats can be rendered permanently
productive,
"The timber royalty bill in many
respects is the most important mean
nre introduced during thc present
session.
At the University of Washington
the new hill introduced hy Hon, William R. Ross was the subject of an
address to the students in the forest
ry class by Overton W. Price, former
associate forester ot the United
States under Glftord Pinchot, and
now vice-president of the National
Conservation association of the
United States, of which Mr. Pinchot
is president.   The lecturer snid:
"Hon. William R. Ross, British
Columbia's minister of lands has insured hy his royalty measure thnt
tho people of British Columbia got a
fair share ot the increasing vnlue ot
their own timber, now hold under
lease by lumbermen. He has given a
uew and very wholesome stability to
the lumber industry, and ho has
taken a step which makes straight
toward practical forestry on all public timber lnnds,
"I expect to see great results trom
royalty bill-large public
revenues from public timber, takon
fairly as the people's sham ot the Increase on lumber prices; practical
forest conservation in tho woods
which will issue n second crop of
timber, and the wider application by
the Hritisb Columbia government of

great public resources In public ownership. And one moro result: I ex
poet to ae. this royalty men sure

Iter Industry In British Columbia

place." ...
Pat BurnB, the well-known cattleman of Calgary, ia nothing If not
practical. The other day Mr. Burns
gave utterance to an aphorism which
Is worth keeping in mind. "Tell everybody," he said, "to go out and
buy a bit of laud and grow something." This is excellent advice, and
Mi. Hums went a little lurther. He
expressed his renditions to buy the
ahbnireH. tin* chickens and the but*
producers. If this

irns added,
;o new Zealand uiilf ny^iUa nii-f. Japan for
produce to *«Hte a K|siposB in
"lhls line big, rich western jbuntry.'
It Is this latter fact wb^B makes
the high cost of llvhig W^^unneces
snry a factor in tbe IMVmlnion. The
trouble is that the number ot produc
i rs of tbe necessaries of lite Ih small
in comparison with the number of
consumers,
It Is to he hoped   that   the   frank
advleo   tendered   by   Mr.   Mums,   as
well   ns   its   encouraging   corallary,
will he taken to   heart.     Now   that
the bottom hns fallen out of the real
estate boom, and the artificial   infial
lion of land   values   has   practically
come to end, Mr. Hums already sees
signs   of   an   augmentation   ot   tbe
ranks of the cultivators of the   soil.
If this is continued and an increased ]
number   of   small   cultivators   bring
their produce  into   the   market,   by
and bye there will   he   no   necessity
for a commission to inquire into the
high cost of living in   this   country.
The   people   themselves   have   it   In
their power to very materially minimize the trouble,   and  a  realization
of tbis fact, is beginning to be more
generally appreciated.     In   the   full
Hush of prosperty,   with   everything
going   full   steam   ahead,   only   big
things are regarded, hut the event of
stern necessity makes   way   for   the
dny ot   small   things.    When   every
city, town and village in the west is
surrounded by a circle of market gar
dons, chicken farms and dairies, with
well-organized system ot   distributing the different  kinds   of   produce,
the problem of tho high cost of   living will be well on Its way to a final
solution.   It ia really a misnomer to
call the high cost of living   a   prod-
lem.   As a matter of  fact,   there  Is
'thing mysterious about lt   at   all.
It. begins with the individual and ex
tends upwards.   Wben the   individual
puts on hia thinking cap and flrst re
vises his   own   expenditure the  all-
round downward tendency will follow
as a matter af   course.    The  disappearance of the real estate boom baa
already had this effect, and the   restoration   ot   land   values   to   their
proper and normal level fa  the   first
indication of the change for the   better.
It is little short of ridiculous tbat
Western Canada should be so largely dependent upon outside sources
for thc Bupply of the real necessaries
of life. The growing of grain ts desirable, but no longer can only one
egg be put into the agricultural basket. It Ib equally Lndespensable tbat
the cultivation ot vegetables and
fruits, as well as the providing ot a
constant supply of milk, butter,
cheese and eggs, ahould form an integral portion of the agricultural
economy of Western Canada.

Few deaths have occurred in 81m-

and saddened our people as that ot
the late Mr. Kdgett Tisdale, which
took place on Tuesday forenoon a

would have in mind as likely tu bo
early called by thc Grim Harvestman
Known to almost every mau ln Norfolk, the friend of every child in Bim
coe, the startling suddenness of his
taking away has profoundly moved
the   whole   community.
He had not heen well, it is true,
for some weeks, thc result of a bad
cold contracted at Long Point, towards the close of the shooting season. But neither he nor bis family
gave his condition serious thought,
other than to feel sure that when he
took hie customary winter cruise in
West Indian waters he would be
made as good as new. This trip he
had arranged to have started on
from New York yesterday. But fate
willed otherwise. Two weeks ago, as
the result of medical treatment he re
ported himself as feeling improved
and he was down town and at his
ofllce daily up to Friday, January 22
The following day he was so much
Indisposed as to remain at home,but
it waB not until past, the middle of
last week that it became piain that
he had contracted pneumonia and
was in a critical condition. Everything tbat trained nursing could do
and the highest medical skill in the
Province advise was exerted on hia
behalf, but without avail, and he
died, as stated above, on Tuesday.
The deceased gentleman was born
in Simcoe 50 years ago next month
the elder son and third child of Hon
Col. David Tisdale, Minister of Militia in the government of Sir
Charles Tupper and one ot Norfolk's most prominent sons. He was
educated here in the Public and
High Schools of the town; studied
law with tbe firm ot which his
father was head, afterwards in the
office ot MacCarthy, Osier _ Company, Toronto; he was called to the
bar in 1888, and joined the Arm ot
Tisdale, Rohb _ Tlsdale, which, ou
the elevation of Judge Robb to the
bench, became Tlsdale, Tisdale _
Reid. A sound old lawyer, his services were always ln demand by a
wide circle of clients. His ability as
a lawyer was recognised by the government of Sir James Whitney ln bis
appointment as a K.C. in 1908. A
year later he succeeded, upon the
death of the late Mr. A. J. Donly,
to the office of county registrar,
with the all but universal approval
ot the people, whom he has since served faithfully and with ability. For
yeara before his appointment as registrar, Mr. Tisdale bad been looked
upon as general in-chief ln Norfolk of
the working lorces of the party to
which he belonged, and it was widely stated and generally believed that
be might have bad nny political nom
inatton in Norfolk thnt he wanted.
But he always proclaimed his dislike for public lite, ami a desire to
get out of politics at the Ilrst opportunity that he could do so creditably.
Besides attending to his own business and devoting nn enormous n-
monnt ot time and energy to the advancement ol thc Conservative Party here, Mr. Tisdale found possible
to take an interest nlso In the affairs ot the town, lle was In the
Oouncll lor live years, and served as
mayor in the years 1897  and   1898.
His widow was heforo her marriage

John Wilson, M. II., who was Him

and 1879, and again In 1882 nnd 18811.

"Radium Bill"
The Premier, Hon. it. McBride, pre
sented a bill hefore the house at the
last session, its purpose being to give
encouragement to the prospectors in
British Columbia, in the discovery
of that most precious of all metals
"Radium."
This new act will he entitled the
"Radium Act.''
Radium, as the act declares, means
all deposits of carnotite, pitchblendes
or other ores containing radium in
sufficient quantity for commercial extraction.
In looking for "Radium" it might
he well to note that the person who
first discovers radium within the
province of British Columbia, and
satisfies thc authorities to that effect
he will receive a reward of Si*. ,000.00.
The malting of an act of this character in wblcb such encouragement
is given is a step forward, prospectors are men who make great sacrifices, their lives are lonesome
and ofttlmes dangerous, and an appreciation in thia way marks a new
epoch in the business. ...

Seeing by Wire now
Possible
Berlin, Feb. 21.—prof. Arthur Korn
whose telephotographic system is to
be employed over the transatlantic
cable to New York, in connection
with the Panama-Pacific Exposition
at San Francisco, stated today that
direct service from Europe to San
Francisco for exhibition purposes
must be wireless, because the connecting up of the overland cables for
through scrvic could not be arranged.
The new patent consists of a method whereby a weak current registering thc varying shades of the
photo Ib transferred by means of a
galvanometer into a high tension cur
rent capable of li-ing transmitted either by submarine or wirelesB. Tho
correspondent asked if the profcssor'B
discovery brought seeing by wire nny
nearer
"Seeing by wire is now possible,'.
Prof. Korn replied, "though tbe cost
iB still almost prohibitive. It la pos
nibh» now to lit instruments on either
side of the Atlantic whereby a portion facing a screen ou one aide would
have his picture thrown on another
screen on the other side. To transmit
such a screen picture from Hi'ilin to
Han Francisco would cost, about
910,000, while a capital of .2,01)0,00(1
would cover the expense uf an efficient trlnl service of screen reproduction,
"Thc reproduction of moving BOOnei
in equally possible," Prof. Korn wild
"The expense ol transmitting the ordinary puhlisbable photo from Ireland
to New York hy tho p.'lnforced sol.-
mun method would he about $7f» to
$1.00. To transmit a street scene or
landscape would take about as lotig
as to send four or five thousand
words by cable. ti
While Prof. Korn is now working
on tho problem of quickening tho
transmlttion of photos, he sees llttlo
prospect, at present, of cheapening
the transmission, lie wns asked whether the multiple cell system invented
hy Ernest H/htimer wiih practicable
for BOOtng by wire,
"While Tlhnmer'H Byfitom is un
donbl.eilly worknble," he answered,
"tllO huge size of the Instrument required makes its construction and
cost impracticable, whereas the Korn
system, re.|ulrlng bnt onn hundred
magnetic arcs, may he expensive, but
It In not impracticable or prohibitive
as regards size.
