Hon. W. R. Ross Visits at
Able and Efficient Minister of Lands Reflects Credit
On Whole Province
The Hon. William Roderlek Rosa,
Minister ot Lands, spent a few days
In Cranbrook laat week looking alter
the interests ol the Department ot
which ho Is the very ublo hoad. Mr.
Ross, wo know na a big man physically, big mentally and big hearted,
hut the speech ho delivered ln Parliament on tho land policy ol the
Government marks him as a roan pob-
(ased ol the highest ability to grapple with groat questions which are so
vitally interesting to all British Columbia. A constituency which haa the
honor and possesses the intelligence
to elect a gentleman llko W. R. Ross
does more than credit to Itself, It
contributes fully as much to the welfare of tho whole Province. Men forget that when electing a representative to parliament they are not serving their own district nnd ita special
interests only, but tbe interests of
thc wholo Province. A constituency
whose voters' list Is made up ol deluded fanatics so gullible ns to be
made tools of by designing usurpul-
oub demagogues, pay little attention
to Its own or the country's interests.
A few districts in British Columbia
nre of this sordid sort, hut they are
not of the agricultural class or ol
nify class of selfrespectlng or intelligent peoplo. Tho dry rot of socialism has infected too many who abuse
tho privilege of having their names
put on the voters' list. Mr. Rosa in
the introduction to his splendid
speech, made reference to the "honorable gentleman," who occupied the
position ol leader ol the opplsltion,
"who either by the arrogance of his
position, or by the fortuitous accident which places him there, placed
ln auch a position, it is the first ol
hlB duties to pay serious attention to
the serious business ol the Government and not to treat matters ln the
supercilious way that ho treated the
amendments to the Forest Act."
Nover have the great resources ot the
province been treated, aa they are by
tho present Government. Wo must
not overlook tho fact that on account ot tho great variety ot the conditions ol climate and elevation to
assiga any particular locality lor the
purposes of growing cereals, fruit or
anv other ot tho products ot the coll.
The lnlluenco of both climate and elevation regulate conditions. Thero is
no reason why British Columbia
should import butter, beef or egga. It
ls to be hoped tbat under tbe guidance ol tho Land Department this
state of thinga may bo overcome.
There ls another branch of the service for which we cannot sufficiently
commend tbe present government.
The Forestry Act has not come any
too soon. The careless destruction
ol the toresta of North America
amounts to untold millions. British
Columbia, up to the present had been
visited by tho most destructive torest tires, Tho valuo ot tbo trees thus
destroyed, was hitherto regarded as
ot no moment. Now the government
had faithlul and competent men selected and appointed to seo that no
llros are allowed to spread through
carelessness or design an have pro
vailed in tbe past, Tho province has
In its timber an asset not represented in its untold valae. Most of the
groat timber limits of tho east are
now practically denuded of its trees.
The pulp Industry is a growing one
and will be an Important industry ln
this province. The future prosperity
ot the country Is In tho hands ol our
present-day legislators. Posterity will
reap the benolits ot the wise preservation ot tho forests that are today,
but Insignificant. Tho hills that appear useless tor hitman habitation
have on their surface and possibly in
their depths, the source nt untold
wealth. The Free Pre-emption Policy ls a long step ahead and deserves
praise for its liberal amendments.
Mr. Ross's speech Is published in a
neat pamphlet and should be read by
everyone taking a lively interest in
tbe prosperity of the country.

A meeting of the City Council m t
In tbe Council Chambers on Monday,
April Uth, to pftSH the nccouatsMo!'
the month o( Mnrch and to transact
any other busings which waa brought
before it.
With Mayor Bowness presiding -.•.1
Hupported by Aldermen Ward, Leaa'.,
Kennedy, Carr and Clapp, the meeting waa called to order ut 2 p.m.
The motion of Aldermen Ward and
Kennedy that the minutes of the laat
regular and special meetings were
read and adopted*—carried.
A communication was read from
thc Agricultural Association, asking
for n grant from the City toward the
Fall Fair which is to he held In Sep*
ember of this year. The Mayor A.
C. Bowness, in his remark., thereon,
wished It to be placed on record that
he doesn't believe the present officers
of the association were legally elected. At the meeting at which the ol-
_ction_.of the ofllcers took place there
was a large number of persons present, who did not belong to the association, and who voted on their election; it was only after the election
had taken place that membership
dues wore taken and consequently several new members joined. "For myself I do not think a grant should be
made, owing to the unbusineas-llke
methods used in the fair* promotion
of the last two years."
They were only advised a short
time ago by the government official,
Hon. Price Ellison, that money
should not be granted to any Association outside of tho City limits,
with the possible exception of the
Farmer's Institute.
Moved by Aldermen Ward and CT*pp
that the communication be received
nnd the City Clerk notify the Agricultural Association that we are not
in a position tbls year to donate
them any assistance.—Carried.

All the Aldermen and Mnyor were ot
tho firm opinion that if thoy gavo
tho work to this firm they would be
<lolng a grent Injustice to other local
contractors who might wish to ten-
dor on tho work, and it waa resolved
that tenders should be called for the
construction of 25,000 aq. feet of concrete, according to specifications prepared by tho City Engineer, tendero

Letters just received from Ottawa
state that the Canadian Insti.ute of
Mining Engineers while In session re
ceutly ln that city unanimously adopted a resolution Btrongly ircing
the Federal Government to establish
nn Independent department of mines.
In view of the temarkable .1. velop-
ment of tho mining Industry through'*
out the Dominion, it wns held thnt
the time bod arrived whon a ooparato
department should be created, .md in
this connection the name of Mr. R.
F. Orcen, M.P., tor Kootenny, was
especially mentioned. It was point
cd out by the Institute thut Mr.
Oreon was for long Intimately identified with an ossentially mining district and later acted both as Minis
ter of Minco and aa Minister ot Lands
aad Works in the Government of thm
Province, and by all and varied qualifications, was held to be especially
well qualified to administer the department of minea for the Dominion,
slioulh Btich a department be created.
"It is understood," says The Calgary News-Telegram, "that the mining men of Onnndn strongly fa. or Mr.
Green for the office, nnd certainly
those ln British Columbia d.—they
being especially familiar w tli his
'nullifications, and unanimously urging both that the department bo
formed and thnt Mr. Urccn b.< placed in charge of it."    -
la connection with tins matter, Thej
News-Telegram a few days ac . published on Interview with Mr. E. A.
SoOVil, of Golden, who was pnBHing
through Calgary enroute to bis J
homo, nfter attending the session oil
the Canadian Institute ot Mining Iin
elneors.     In tbls interview  Mi.  Seo
vll corroborated tho news from Ot I
tawn and added that the department)
of mines wnn regarded by the mining I
engineers of Canada ns an urg.'tit no- i
Tensity tf tbe interests ol tbe industry arc to bo thoroughly looked after I
and successfully promoted. Hitherto, be said, the mines hove been under the supervision of the Secretary
of State, but the work has grown to
such proportions that It is now imperative thnt a special portfolio bo
ereate.l in order that it may be properly attended to. Tho Secretar- of
State is already loaded down with
work properly nppertaincl to his
own department, and it In impossible
for him to eive tbat attention to th..
milling industry that it deserves.
During the past few years immensely  valuable mining  ureas havo been
oponcd up throughout Canada, mora
especially  In  Northern Ontario   and
In British Columbia, end tbe activities ',! tho mining men of tbe Dominion are bolng rapidly extended.   Tho
experts gathered together in Ottawa,
Mr    Seovil  said,  hnd  considered tho
Bit.ui.tion  from  every   engle  nnd    tbe
profitable course    tor    Canada,   they
bud concluded, was nn establishment
rif n  department  of  mines tor Cnna-
nda.     In  tbis  opinion  the"  were  in
perfect  arrnrd with mining men not
members of the Institute, nnd it wnn
expected by all thnt tbe mattor will
be  presented   to  the  Governmenment
so convincingly tbat the new dopurt-
nient will shortly be formed.
As to the Minister taking chargo,
Mr. Seovil said tbat the Instituto
bad regarded Mr. Green no tbe only
logical choice, He had already had
charge of a similar department in tho
BritlBh Oolumbla Government, and ln
addition wna thoroughly familiar
mining conditions end pioblema, not
only in tbe pacific Proviuce, but
throughout the entire Dominion.
"As to Mr. Green's administrative
ability, tb.-re cnn be no question,"
observed Mr. Seovil. "and it he In
appointed, the mining Industry n!
Canada will be riven nn impetus ot
inestimable  vnlue."—-,'ewo-Telegram.

Paris, France.—Exciting Incidents
marked the trial of two Camelots tlu
Hoi, M. Charles Maurras, the well-
known writer and member of the staff
of the principal royalist paper, and
M. de CoupiRiiy. They were accused
ot assaulting several persons who refused to shout 'Vive le Roi.' The incident took place at Versailles ou December T.
After a banquet about 400 Royalists, or Camelots dn Roi, went to the
courtyard of the palace and made a
demonstration In front of the statuo
of Louis XIV. According to the
prosecution, a railway employe, who
with his wife and friend, was abou-t to
inspect the palace; was surrounded by
the demonstrators, and because he refused to shout 'Vive le Roi!' he was
knocked down, and so badly hurt that
he could not work for a fortnight.
Two policemen who came to the rescue also received kicks and blows and
an ardent desire to know more of It.
I have only bcen through it by railway, and it was not possible during

3peci--.t Guardians of the Night Formed In Pafrla for Protection of Property
Paris,  France,—A series of burg-
i larles In the eenter of Paris haa led
to the creation of a apecial forco of
private police, or night guards, who
begin their duties this week.     Their
special   attentions   are   directed   to
guarding thc property of citizens who
havo subscribed    toward   the    N'Ig_t
Guards' Association,
Last night a reporter for a morning
newspaper accompanied nn Inspector
on his rounds of tbo Avenue dc l'Op-
era and tho adjacent streets, whloh
aro patrolod by a dozen stalwart
guards In a blue uniiorm with a
quaint helmet.. Each guard had a
police dog and a heavy automatic pistol, Tho Inspector had with him a
magnificent black German phtcp dog,
which was muzzled and hold or. leash-
All the dogs, ihe 0ffli»r explained,
had bcen specially trained for thrlr
work. Just lay a hand on mo and
soe what tho dog will do, said a guard.
The rejwrtor gave him a hearty blow
in the chest. Wllh a low growl tho
grout black dog at his side sprang at
tho newspaperman's throat. llis
master pulled him off.
The scheme is in its infnncy, but It
ta hoped before long to establish patrols In the residential districts of Paris. Subscribers may get a guard at
night to summon a doctor or a cab.

Replying to an address presented by
thc women ot the town, General Hertzog said that Ms leaching of South
African nationalism had been called

preach the doctrine.
This statement was received with
loud cheers. General Hortzog was
carried shoulder high to the platform.
Among those present waa Mr. Wll.

General Hertzog referred at great
length to the recent cabinet crisis, and
attacked General Bollia in the strongest terms. He complained repeated-
i ly and emphatically that General Botha had not given a reason for dis-
' missing him, and stated that in the
speech ho (General Hertzog) delivered
in the Ilustemburg district on December 7, in which he declared that ho
believed in imperialism only so.far as
it benefited South Africa, lie preached
a doctrine which had boon preached
dozens of times in the Orange Free
State, namely, that he was a mluister
of South Africa, not of the empire,
called upon to attend to the Interests
ot South Africa and not thoso of the
empire. As a subject of the empire
he was first a South African and then
an Imperialist and when these inter-
osts conflicted, then those of South
Africa came flrst.
If egotism and envy desired the
Dutch-speaking people always to make
sacrifices to the English-speaking race
In order that true conciliation might
be secured, then South Ofrica was not
ripe for conciliation. The Interests
ef the Dutch-speaking people were being paid away as bribes in order to
obtain that conciliation.
Anxiety existed all over South
Africa because the people felt that the
interests both of the Dutch and English-speaking races were at slake. If
thero was anything inimical to the
Interests of the country, then It was
the number of foreign interests vested tn Johannesburg and other places.
He had been requested by Influential persons to lead a new party, owing to the dissatisfaction which was
felt with General Botha and General
Smuts, but he wished, at all costs, to
avoid a division.
A resolution was passed expressing
regret at tho exclusion of General
Hertzog from the ministry and admiration for the attitude he had taken.
Artie had tried hy various means

A Magistrate's Wonderful Experience
With Zam-Buk
Mr. J. E. Arsenault, a Justice of
the Peace, and Btatlon master at Wellington, on the Prince Edward Island
Ity., has had a wonderful proof of the
healing power of Zam-Buk,   He says:
"Four years ago I had an accident
I slipped in the station and felt on a
freight truck, sustaining a bad cut
on the front of my leg. I thought
this would heal, but instead of doing
so it developed Into a bad ulcer and
later into a form of eczema which
spread very rapidly and also started
on the other leg. Both legs became
so swollen and sore that I could only
go about my work by having them
bandaged. My doctor said I must
stop work and lay up.
After six months of this trouble I
consulted nnother doctor, but with no
bettor result. I tried all the salves,
liniments and lotions I heard of, but
Instead of getting better I got worse.

Outrage Committed  When  Few  Visl-;
ton Were In That Section of j
London.—An extraordinary out- [
rage was committed at the National
Gallery recently, when four valuable |
oil paintings were damaged, the glass
each being smashed and the
pictures hacked. The damage is e-i-
timated at about $230.
A middle-aged man, giving the name
of Ernest Welch, of Salterne-road,
Parkstone, Dorset, described aa a
house painter, was arrested in connection with the affair and taken to
Vine stru-t police station and charged
with wilfully damaging the four pictures. Tliey are as follows: Mrs.
Constable, by Constable; The Gleaners, by Constable: A Castle, by a
Lake, by Richard Wilson; Hadrian's
Villa, by Richard Wilson.
The pictures are each about two feot

Paris. France.—The town of Bez-

recently. Nothing will convince the
superstitious people that ft is not true.
According to the story, which is:
printed with much detail, a woman
was Raving the cemetery, where she
had gone to pray at the grave of her
husband, when she noticed a statue or
the Virgin covered with moss. The
condition of the statue inspired her
witJi pity and she tried to wash the
moss from it wiih her pocket handkerchief. She declares that the statue came to life; that one of i's hands
touched the handkerchief and that a
voice said: This cloth is sacred now.
Keep it, for 1 have blessed it Lo thank
you for your act of piety.
The woman ran home to her cottage
and told hcr sick daughter what had:

would cure mc, and In the end it did.
It is now over a year since i-an.-I.uk
worked a cure in my case, and there
has been no return of thc eczema or
any trace of Lt.'*
Such Is the nature of tho great

Military Circles  Demanding Vast  Increase to Already Gigantic Fighting Machine
Berlin .—According to reports of the
well-informed Frankfurter SSeitung, lt
is intended in the present session of
the Reichstag to introduce a bill
strengthening tho German army.
From another source It is learned that
the cost will bo somewhere between
50,000,000 and 100,000,000 marks.
In the Ix)kal Anseiger some Indication Is given of the direction which
the new army bill wlll take. First
there will be an effort made to Increase tha contingent recruits, which
at the present time Is a little above
that supplied by France, wllh a much
smaller population. Secondly, in tho
Infantry, regiments with two battalions wlll be strengthened wilh another
btitalllon, and an Increase Is also regarded as necessary to tho machine
gun companies and several cavalrv
The artillery forces aro nlso regarded ns unduly weak, owing to the
fact Uiat there is no uniform system
of gun In use. The establishment of
cycle coihwmics is considered necessary, and in'nn ospeclal degroo effort
tmiHt bc made to strengthen tho army
with a Hullabl' number of flying ma-
chinos nnd dirigibles.
It is hardly likely that tho new bill
will provide for all theso wants, which
Jn the first placo must bo regarded
merely as a statement of what tho
military circles are demanding.

Though he Is himself, in , private

the Irish novelist, loves a good story
on the -clergy, and one of lhe most
amusing sections in hit new book:
The Lighter side of Irish Life, deals
with thc foibles and misadventures of
Irish pastors. One of his tales may
be quoted:
A north of Ireland gentleman heard
from the lips of a clergyman of the
death of an Inveterate enemy of his
who harassed him for many years.
Well, he said, it's a comfort to think
that the devil's got that fellow at last.
The clergyman, being a clergyman,
felt bound to protest against this uncharitable view of the dead man's condition. He insinuated a hope that,
in spite of all that had passed, the
poor man might have escaped the extreme penalty.
Well, said tha other, if the devil
hasn't got that fellow, all I can say
Is that I don't see much use In our
keeping a devil at all.

Specialist In    Mental    Disorders    Explains  Its  Effect  Upon  Ordinary
London, Kngland.—The possibility
of goiters flocking to llarley street to
be cured of a tendency to top their
drives or foozle their moshie shots is
opened by the news that after hypnotic treatment at Guy's Hospital a golfer
.who was off his game returned to the
links In splendid form.
He was an amateur plus player who
had suddenly gone stale from over
concentration on the game, and thc
method adopted by a Harley street
nerve specialist vas to InsUll In the
man's mind by suggestion the conviction that he was just as good a player
as ever.
Some Interesting opinions on the
subject were given by Dr. Edwin Ash,
Uie famous specialist ln mental disorders.
A game such as golf, he explained,
requires a very delicate co-ordination
of mind and muscle, which becomes
subconscious in the case of a player
of any skill. He plays like an automaton, and Is at his best when he
docs not trouble about his game.
Any flow of energy ln his conscious
mind, such as over anxioiy about the
result of the match, or the Idea that
he ll going to play badly, has the result of Interfering with the working of
the subconscious part. It clogs the
Wheels of tho automaton.
Now, there is no doubt that suggestion can remove that interference by
removing the particular Ideas which
havo blocked tho free running of the
automatic Impulses whloh wlll all go
to the proper swinging of a club.
Tho hypnotic sleep state Is not necessary, and ln most cases Is undesirable. My own method ln such cases
is to get tho patient's mind poised,
aud then remove by suggestion tho
Idea which is obstructing the subscou-
Sotous action of thc brain.
Students suddenly faced with nn
examination paper oflcn find their memories almost wiped out by the rush
of energy in their conscious brain.

Takes Place of Her Alleged Lover and

gave lessons to young army ofllcers, | ing their ten day
Willi whom sho was a great favorite
RI. Putokln quarreled with a lieu-!
tenant, whom he thought paid too j
marked attentions to his Wife, and a'
duel was arranged. The combatants I
met at the appointed time with their]
seconds in one of the rooms at the,
fencing school and were about -to begin the duel with rapiers wheu Mme. |
Putokln appeared.
She declared that her husband's ■
challenge was a reflection on her own
honor, and demanded that he tight
with her bc-fore he met the officer.
The other men present upheld her
view, and'fresh seconds were chosen.
The fencing master and his wife
began their deadly encounter amid encouraging remarks from the onlookers.
M. Putokln was the bettor swordsman,
and contented himself with parrying
his wife's thrusts. After the fourth
pass, however, one of Mme. Putok-
Ln's backers shouted: Finish him, my
jewel, ho Is not worthy of you!
Mme. Putokin made n furious lunge

We agree with Dr. Young that some
limit should be set to this craze lor
subdivisions.    But,   with  all  loyalty
and respect to His Majesty's ministers   wby does not the Government
act 'up to its Provincial Scrretary's
principles?     Surely,    it   might have
made a start at least at Shawmgan
Lake, where subdlvisionnl plans come
directly beneath Its jurisdiction?    It
ls all very well to talk ol "raying
debts with assets," and ot the attendant evils ot living on our capital,
but thero is more ot this caused by
tbe unlicensed exercise ol subdivision-
al "interests"   than is dreamt ol in
the learned Doctor's philosophy.   His
advice Is none the less sapient   and
salutary and we shall do well to take
it to heart.     We can  wish nothing
better than that thc finances ot each
and alt ot our rcadetB may be in as
flourishing condition as is that ol the

been doing good by -stealth, yet only
now do we take him from his shadowy niche; stand him up for all the

comes the clarion call: "Honor Thy

We look at his prey hairs, his

think of many words whereby we may ■

has been set apart and dedicated to

"Mother's Day" hna been commemorated for many years, and we venture to say that the world is a better place today because of It'a observance. Linked to the magical word
"Mother" is childhood, with all it's
vague happy memories: memories
crammed full of Santa Claua, Jack,
the Giant killer, Mother Hubbard
and many other wonderful heroes and
heroines. And what -, splendid tonic
it is, to turn the wheels of time back
over the years, and hold high revelry
with those knlghta mid ladies of old,
forgetting for the moment all of real
estate, tho high cost of living or the
naval policy.
Without a doubt, these were the
dayB ol real sport. The perplexltie
of profit and loss found no place In
their artless affairs, one did not feel
the grim necessity o( going around
wearing ,. face like a stratagem, but
wub freo to greet a friend with a joyous "Whoopee," or turn upon one's

these treasured memories should cluster round the word mother to the utter exclusion of father, often set us
wondering of what a rogue the old

Mr Pelletler read the House statements from R. M. Coulter, the Deputy PoBtmaster-General, Hector B.
Verret, the Assistant Deputy, and
Sidney Smith, Controller of Postal
StoreB, giving the circumstanccB ol
tbe lock transaction. These clrcum-
BtanceB were:
The patent under which tho lock
formerly used for the mail bags was
manufactured, bad expired.
The old lock was tbeu in a condition described by the efforts of the
Department as so defective that it
"could be opened by other means
tban they key, and the contents ol
tbe bags thus got at and letters and
valuables extracted."
For obvious reasons the policy of
the Department has been to change
tbe lock every fifteen or eighteen
years. A new lock was tested, found
to be satisfactory, and the contract
awarded. It was let without tender
for the reason that tho article Is a
patented one.    Says Mr. Smith.
"Tho Post onico lock bas never
been put up to competitive tender,
being covered by pntent rights the
Department waB not at liberty to
call tor tenders, besides which the
calling for tenders would lead to a
publicity and knowledge of the internal mechanism of tho lock aim n^st
lock makers and lock dealers, which
is not permissible iu the case of a
lock intended to secure the safety ol
ing tho next four yearB for thla purpose alone."
That la the answer to the mail bag
lock "scandal." Summed up it is
this; that the contract was entered
into on the advice of the expert officials of the Department, who declared that a new lock waa necesBary for
tbo safety of tho malls, the contract
is in the ordinary, form of the Department, that it does not call for
uny more locks than the Department
requires from time to time that such
locks could be purchaeod by tender,
that the price is the same as fixed by
the lato PofltmaBter-G«*eral in 1907
for the old lock, that ttio company
was not composed ot Mr. Fclletler's
friends, that there waB no graft.

The Postmaster General declared
that the price for this good lock was
the same us the price paid for the
old defective luck, which price was
fixed by Mr. Lemieux white in office.
This  Mr   Lemieux solemnly  denied
Mr. Pelletler thereupon produced a
memorandum jf ihe Post Office Department, dated October 15, 1907,
signed by the Controller, and addressed to Mr. Luscbiuger, the then
-.(•.siaHftDt Deputy, fixing the price to

In short that there wua a big graft,
Thia question waa rnifed In tbe
Home by Hon. Hodolphe U*mleui,
ex-Postmaster -General, Mr. Lemieux went as far aa he dared in the
Hoiiho, and the charge waa amplified
and extended aa above by the Liberal
party newspapers.
Mr. Pelletier has given the House
the exact facta ot thn caan an shown
by the reconlH of tbe Department,
bearing the namea of the highest permanent olflcials of the pont.t! Hervlce, men of known capacity and lu
tegrity.     first of all,  the contract
Thla contract wan entered Into on
October 26 of Inst yonr. It, binds

of locke.

"I may say that I   do   not   know:

sure of my having met him once in i

for this contract and wben I discussed the matter with him.    That Is the
only  time I met the  gentleman,   1
have never spoken to him before or
since.    That ls the friend to whom
these newspapers allude."
Thc Idea that the Department was
contracting lor 350,000 of these new
locks arose in this way, as explained
by a memorandum signed by Hector
B. Verret, Assistant Deputy Postmaster-General:—
"At page 0,441 of the Hansard of
March 19th, 1913, Mr. Lemieux asked how many new locks had been
bought for mall bags. Mr. Pelletler
answered:   350,000,
When this question was asked by
Mr. Lemieux, it was almost six
o'clock, whilst we were rushing tbe
Supplementary Estimates through.
Mr. Pelletier asked me: "How many
locks do you think we will require?"
I answered: "Ilotween 300,000 and
350,000 during the next four years,
which is the term of tbe contract."
1 am afraid tbat I have lead the
Postmaster-General astray in giving
such large figures, and I am ready
to take the blame for it.
Knowing for the pnst three years
tbat the lock was defective, and that
anyone could open it with a knife (ae
I had done myself), I told the Minister that lt was not safe, and that
a new one should he submitted. 1
discussed the matter with the Bepu
ty Ministers and the Controller of
Postal Stores, who were of the same
In the meantime, a lock had been
Patented under number 142,823. Wr
found that this lock would be perfectly snfe for the malls, and nfter
many experiments before the Postmaster-General, he came to the con
elusion that the lock should be ac

Here ls an example of what western
farmers really think about tbe Liberal attitude on the proposed Dreadnought gift to the Empire. In view
of the extraordinary misrepresentation of western sentiment on this
question by Opposition members, the
example Ib a striking one. It la a
resolution passed on March 26 and
telegraphed from Wllkie, Bas.., to
Premier Borden by R. James Sprers,
Secretary of the Tramping Lake Conservative Association.
"At a mass meeting of the Tramping Lake Conservative Association
held at Unity, Sask., today composed chiefly ol farmers, representing
over tlfty townships, a resolution
was passed condemning George Mc-
Oraney, M.P., nnd A. Champagne, M.
P., for misrepresenting the opinion of
the West and for the Inactivity in
the House nf Commons. At the close
of one of the most largely attended
and mo.it enthusiastic meeting! ever
held in Saskgtchewan, the following
resolution erdorslng Mr. Borden's

passed unanimously, 'Whereas the Bt.

Tho Liberal "Witness" of Montreal
sayB of the prosperity of tho Dominion:—
"Commercial prosperity seems to
follow Mr. Borden'B stntely lead ss
faithfully as it did the white plume
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. As our trade
increased by leaps and bounds during
Sir Wilfrid's long term, so it Is continuing to increase, and Canada never bad such a year as the laat. A revenue increased by thirty-live millions has lelt a treasury running over
against the Government's many undertakings for expenditure. If Investors abroad needed assurance of Canada's prosperity, these figures would
seem to supply it."
Parting of the Ways
When former President Taft, was
negotiating the reciprocity agreement
with tbe former administration, be
frankly declared that Canada was
"at the parting ot the ways." 8he
had either to cast her lot definitely with Great Britain, or become fiscally and politically entangled with
tbe United States. Canada's answer
Is historic. She chose to remain a
Portion of the British Empire, and
Laurier and his company ot Separatists had to pack their carpet bags
and get out of office atter fifteen
years of power,
"Canada today faces a similar situation." She ls at the parting of the
waya, Laurier Is pulling hard for
Separation and Independence. He ts
deliberately seeking to block an effort to aid the motherland, and he
has come out ln his true colors as a
firm believer ln independence as the
ultimate goal. The iBsue belore the
Canadian peoplo is that of remain
ing a proud part of the Empire or
Separation, There is no compromise.
Tbe Liberal leaders, Laurier, Pugsley, Graham and Lemieux have said
we will not permit tho Government
to increase the effective naval forces
of tho Empire. Thoy claim tbat the
British Admiralty does not know
what lt wants, in asking thnt Canada's aid bo given ln the form of a
number of the most powerful ships
which science can build and money
will provide. Laurier, Pugsley and
Company know far bettor Ihan the
Admiralty what the Admiralty wants.
What this little band of Separatists
proposes ls something which will take
years to bring to nn effective condition, and is In direct opposition to
the Immediate necessities of the Admiralty.
The Government In pressing its natal bill, has behind It the real solid
sentiment of the country. It le a
business-like proposal, und the Can
nilian peoplo will receive full valuo
for tho money eipondod. The policy
of Premier P-nrdeu is "action" ln
ths manner auggosted hy tho Admiralty. The policy of Laurier Is
that we 'owe "nothing" to England,
and therefore "nothing" Is her duo.
It Is enough to make every loyal
Canadian blush for very shame!
BERLIN.-"II oiitsldo forces should
threaten us, Germany must stand
ready with her laat mun," doclarod
Dr. von llethmnmi Ilollweg, the Iin
perial ciinncellor, In Parliament today, whllo submitting the Government's bills for increasing
the army and providing new
forms of taxation. His speech
was a striking one, although he qualified his warning with the admission
that a "European conflagration In
all probability will not occur."
"Tho good intentions of the French
nnd ItUBslnn Governments are beyond
question," declared the chancellor,
"but Germany must reokon wltb tbe
treat lorce of public opinion, which,
in the form of French warlike patriotism and Russian pan-Slavism,
threatens the peaco of the world
against the wishes ol the great masses of both peoples."
The Chancellor then reiterated
Prlnco Blsmark's saying: "If the
French wait lor us to acknowledge
tbem thoy will wait torever," adding
that UiHiimrk foresaw a French attack on Gormany whenever a warllko
government, or one soaking reliel
Irom Its Internal difficulties by indulging ln foreign activity, camo to
the holm, and when the French had
reason to believe themselves stronger
than Gormany.
The French nation, he said, as a
whole was not'striving for war, but
nismnrk's contingency had been materialised i.b regards wide circles al
thu French peoplo, not only among
tbo fanatically patriotic, but also
among tho moro peaceful and
thoughtful elements of ths nation.
They believe themselves, lf not superior, at least, equal to Gormany, do
Glared tho Chancellor. Perhaps there
was much illusion in the belief awakened In France, but tbe war of 1870
was begun upon Illusion... The pre
seat French Cabinet, be admitted,
was peaceful, but the power of public oplnuon and tbe pressure of the
loudest shouters must be reckoned
General von Heeringen, Minister ol
War, spoke briefly nnd without giving details of the military measures,

Hugo Manse, a Socialist member,

It was noteworthy that in thc
Chancellor's speech Great Britain
was referred to only as a Pacific factor.
Br. von Bethmann-Hollweg, although Indicating by his manner
that he had little belief In tbe practicability of tbe suggestion mado by
the British Admirallty for a year'B
naval holiday, said Germany was
willing to consider ccn-rete proposals
from the British Government.
Timber Revenue
The great importance of tbe timber asset as a factor of contribution
to provincial repenue is again illustrated by the statistics of Forests
Branch receipts for March, the aggregate contribution to revenue for last
month trom this department being
$237,512.69, an increase of $6,780.73
over February, for which month the

clear weeks in which to dispose of accumulated slash, brush, etc., with *
minimum of danger to contiguous
timber and without tbe trifling Inconvenience of securing a permit for
sucb operations from tbe District
Forester ol Local Fire Warden, ae
tbe law directs in the beneficial
scheme of forect protection. It may
be well to remind nil Interested residents ot the Province that the forestry law prescribes a "close season" extending trom May 1 to Octr
ober 1, during which no Blush, brush,
etc., may be burned without a permit
from the Provincial Forest Boasd.
This prohibition Is contained in sections 107 and 108 of the act, which
rend as follows:
"During the close season it shall
be unlawful for any person to set
out, or cause to be set out, started
or kindled, any fire in or near any
foreatB or woodlands except for tbe
purpoBo of clearing land.c ooklng, obtaining necessary warmth, or lor
some necessary industrial purpose
permitted by the Minister, and unless
tho obligations and precautions imposed in ths following sectlans shall
be observed,
"During the cloao season no person, firm or corporation shall set
out, fires In or near slashings ot
forest debris, standing or fallen timber, or brush, grass or other inflammable material, or for any industrial
purpose without first obtaining a
permit therefor; provided that no
person shall be convicted, who shall
have set ln good faith and with reasonable care a back-tire tor the purpose of stopping th* progress ol a
fire then actually burning."
It ts greatly to their own interest
and their own convenience that settlers ond all others who have slash
on tbelr boldingB to be got rid ot,
should attend to its destruction as
soon as possible, while ull vegetation
ls as yet green and tbo ground has
not dried under the summer sun, in
order thnt the element of danger
through the fires spreading may be
reduced to a minimum—an advantage
to the Province generally, and to the
settler, but to tho settler most of all.
Conditions for burning are now described as Ideal, and llttlo difficulty
Is to be anticipated in controlling
fires. In many districts much brush
has already been successfully disposed ot and much more will have been
before the end of the montb and the
advent of the so-called "close-season." If much slash Is to be disposed ot, as by lumbermen or others
clearing large areas, it would be well
for these interested parties to consult
with tho district forestry officer, wbo
will be glad to lend his expert advice
and assistance in determining the safest and best and at the same time,
most economical method to be adopted ln the work of clearing. In many
quarters lt has been prophesied that
the coming season is likely to-be one
of the hardest yet encountered on account ol the very heavy growth ol
grass resulting from last fall's plentl-
lul rainfall. In any event the early
removal of brush and debris will do
more than anything else to keep dangerous conflagrations from ths

After tbe opening ceremony by the
Rev. W. Stephens Sunday, April 6th
night, the church choir rendered ths
service of song, entitled "His Mother's Sermon." The story ls from ths
pen of the famous Ian Maclaran, and
the musical setting by J. H. Meredith. Mr. Atchison the school principle, read the story so effectively
that the large audience was held
spell hound during the whole evening. The choir excelled all previous
record, rendering the musical nart in
magnificent style. Mies Irene Dono-

sung moat touchingly the solo:
"Teach ua How To Pray." A bsau-
tlful bass solo, with soprsno oblige
to entitled "Give to God in Fullest

The choir Is doing good work, adding brightness to the Sunday services. They deserve credit lor their attention to their harmony duties.

In the heavy volume., ol correspondence und requests for information
snd advice recolved dai'y at the ol
flcea of thc Forestry Branch of tho
Lands De. nrtmimt, there are neces-.-
arlly many interesting uew ideas and
helpful suggestions unfolded, the -*0'
ault of observing forestry matters
from a variety of viewpoints. The
Influence of forests in the prevention
of avalanches, and the co:)Fe.(Uont ad
vantage of forestatioa ss a security
and nil! to mining, is thus admirably illustrated in a (otter rcc.ntly to
hand, from Mr, Arthur Lak-oa, Sr., - f
Ymir, who accompanied his thoughtful communication dealing wit'i the
recent great slide near the Wilcox
Mine on Wild Horse Creek, with a
sketch, which excellently supplements
tho text of his letter.
"I saw yesterday, flays Mr. Lane
in tho hitter, "what seemed to me a
Htrikiiib' object leaaon aB to thc im
portnuce of conserving and preserving growing stnnding timber and '.he
benefit of the forestry policy in averting or checking great [orest fire...
The mountain opposite to the Wilcox
Mloe, abo fi Wll I Horse Creole, is
smooth-fa" d, in eatcd hero and therL*
by. deep t \ ■;.... or shallow ravines
which, duuug luuC winter, were tbe
pathways of small scowslldes, Yesterday, after a succession of severe
und nearly .'ontmiou*. snowstorms,
which accumulated some six nr eight
feet of enow on a level, tbe entire
face of tho mountain for a space ol
over half a mile and to a height of a
thousand feet above tho river, slid
down bodily in one continuous shoot
or snowsllde, starting at every point
simultaneously as though by pre concerted signal and cracking off from
the snow above, leaving a dhtnnt tr
regular or crenated line of cliff apparently from flvo to ten feet high
along the zone where the slido originated, strongly resembling nn Irregular brush fence at a distance. The
snow scaled o'f from underlying and
larder snow like the ccat of an oi-
lon and plunged down enveloped in
white foam nnd smoke-like mist into
the river. Tho remarkab'o feature
to me of this slide was the way in
which, at its starting point it avoided all growing or standing timber.
Tho slide invariably had it. inc>i tion
and origination point in bare plac.s
juat at the lower edge of the timber
—never from within it, although the
timber occupies V-.-haped depressions
well adapted for the accumulation <>:
bpow. During the year before last 1
noted that none of the numeromi Individual slides headed from within
growing timber area**, but invariably
from baro places burned oft by the
forest fires. If the timber covered
the mountain as it did 1 e oro the
fires there would be no fnowelldes on
that mountain nnd no menaces to
mining house.-} or plants. As it is,
it would be hazardous cr im_0Bi.ii.li-
in case ore bodies, (believe! to exist;
were discovered, to mine the ore oi
to erect buildings.
"This little incident, which I diubt
not ia common enough, and which the
foresters must often have ol,s rved in
this country,  showed me clearly  the
protection from snowslideB that standing timber   affords,     ospocial'y   at
their   Inception   and    nenr   the   a tin
niit...    No prudent miner wo *ld cut
to any extent the timber back of his
mining plant:*, on thc poor excuse o!
; being "handy,"   thereby    destroying
; his test, friend and protector, from
j the attack of bis   wont enemy, the
j snowsllde.     At    the   samo   time   he
I would, no doubt, clear oil a certain
| space round bis mining plant, as sec
( urity against forest fires..
"lt seems to n.o that n great fir.at
! lire such as those which have s.wei.t
j these mountains, is one uf thc greatest conceivable misfortunes to n min
i ing  camp.     It endangers  the  plant,
it destroys necessary timber for tu-
I ture use, It extinguishes the tlmbi
protection against snowslides,  it e.
len encourages slides, originates them
or makes them possible, and sarlous-
ly affects the wnt.r supply.    Not only docs It Knock out snd  demolish
■ our flumes, ua in our nwn c\se as tlu
I Wilcox, but it carries away uselesrl)
a vast amount of snow that should
i lie stored up for gradual lies in the
i flpring season.    Both lode minors ana
placer miners realize this.    On the
! other   hand,    timber   le't   standing
gathers th-> snow and lets the water
out gradually and  moderately,  gently,   about thc timo   it is  most  re
: quired,   in   the  spring   and   summer,
; not in  useless   torrents   swept away
1 rapidly in swollen, rivers, but quietly
1 f.nd beneficially.    I have read of sev.
j eral placer mines in northern British
i Columbia being placed hors de com
[ bat by the sudden departure of the
! sno-Afl in   the  spriuT  time,   through
' slides and water borne away In un-
' available torrents.
To me the sight of the effects of a
great forest fire such as that which
awejt through these mountains is a
; most pitiable one.    The only redeem
ing feature of a forest tiro from   a
; mining point of view is that it clears
away the brush and timber and thus
; gives   greater   opportunity    for   the
prospector to search  for and  follow
up expossd veins of mineral.    Otherwise the forest fire apparently  miss
es any law of compensation,    It ie
a deud loss in every Way, do n^  no
. good to anyone and very great harm.
I Thc tight, too, of a trand old tree
i that,  after  perhaps    a   century has
. reached    its    maturity,   standing   a
blackened ruin of stump pome six ot
; eight feet in diameter, ami simply he
■ cause John Smith forgot to put out
! bis camp fire fefore leaving for parts
! unknown, is a scny sight indeed. I
j noticed last spring that the mountain opposite us was gradually be
coming clothed with a low brush oi
, young trees.    Bnt bow mi ny years
, will  it take to restore that mountain-side to its former glery?    And
bow   many  yeara  will  it  require  to
produce a tree comparable in girth
and height to those grand old cedars
; whose  huge stumps,  blackened   nnd
j charred, ""are    crowded    al. ng    the

Was also il grandchild of the elder Booth, being a son
«-f Asia Sidney Booth and the popular actor. John
Sleeper Clarke. Another brother of Creston Clarke,
Wilfred Clarke, is on tlio vaudeville stage.
Tho Jeffei-sons, however, hark back many years before ilie Booths, and tliey cnn, for that matter, claim
the distinction of being tlio oldest American theatrical
family, for live generations have been known to thc
native stage. Kame was brought to the name during
the days of George II, when thc ilrst Jefferson—
Thomas—camo into his own.
Ilow the fll'Bt Jefferson came to take Up the stage
as a profession is really Interesting, It appears that,
Willie David Garrlctc and sonic actor friends were carousing at tbe White Hart inn, after thc news of the
defeat of the Pretender had spread, tho landlord announced that a comely youth was outside, and that ho
could not only slug and dance, but could tell a story
as well, Gal-rick had him ushered into the room and
At once recognized hi--, talents.
This chance meeting was Iho turning point in Jefferson's life, for In a short time be wus playing Horatio to Garrlck's Hamlet, the Duke of Um-Klugliani
to Iils Richard and Parts to his Itcimeo, Ills palron
lunl such a high regard for the young actor that
when he left tlic company to lake up theatrical ni.'ili-
ftgeimnl, Carili-k gave him one of IiIh wigs aa a fare-
Well Eift. This wig was treasured by the family until
It was destroyed  by lire In   18*12.
Among tho stage favorites that Jefferson played
Willi wero Airs. Ablngton, IIohcIub, KlttV Olive,
Bp ran gar Barry, Mossop and .Marklln. His rep-arm ry
watt extensive, ranging from Grntlono, in the •-Mer-

iCSpltO the fact that her father, wbo waa very much
pr-'iudicm)  against theaters, made Jefforsnn sign a
deed thai ho would give him MM- pounds If she became
an actress. Tho flrat Mrs. Jefferson died from excessive laughing, and ll Is said that the lum Joseph
Jefferson experienced a severe pain ut the base of tho
tii-nin when ho laughed heartily.
t The flrat Joseph Jefferson, and, likewise, the flrst
American Jefferson, eaino to thla country In 1795. It
la said that he disapproved uf hla parent'H second marriage, and that thia prompted his sailing to these
ahures. BeaideR being mi actor, he was a painter, as
was bis hiiK-brolhcr Ueorge; and this sumo talent
was enjoyed by tho Into Joseph Jefferson, who spent
many happv hours with tno brush.
/ Joseph lived at the homo of n Mrs. Fori line whllo
In Philadelphia, and thero he fell in love with one
of her two charming daughtors, Euphemla. William
Warren, who waa an equally well-known actor, mat-
rled the other histor, Hester; and that la how the two
great stage ramifies of Warren nnd Jefferson come to
lie related. Threo daughters of tho Warrens followed
the stage, and tho name of hi.-, son, William Warren,
Is i'i ill  familiar to many thoa to moors.
Tho stage also attracted the Jefferson family, for
et the eight adult children, six of them became slngo
favorites. An Interesting cast of "The Bchool for
•Vandal," given In 1831, waa mado up almost .mllrcly
•f members of tho Jefferson family, as follows:
his casta were often composed almost entirely of his
children and grandchildren, with tho addition of his
sister, Mrs. Jackson. Joseph Jefferson the flrst died
ln 1832.
Tho Jeffersons continued acting together after the
death of the father; and, when the second to bear that
name died ln Mobile, Ala., in 1842, the theater had to
be closed on account of the number of players absent.
This Joseph Jefferson was enly 38 years old, and lie
gave promlso of a worthy career at the time of his
death. Ho was the father of Joo Jefferson, or
"Hip,'* as he was familiarly known, Joseph, 2d, married Mrs. Cornelia Frances Burke. She was tlic widow
of Thomas Burke, an actor, and by this marriage had
one son, Charles BuiMte, who later became a well-
known comedian. By the second marriage, there wero
two children, Joseph Jefferson and his sister Cornelia—
Mrs. $. C. Jackson, wlio often played with her brother
bv'fore his death.
The late Joseph Jefferson was also married twice,
and was the father of fen children, of whom four sons
have followed the footlights: Charles Burke, now deceased; Joseph Warren Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson
und William Winter Jefferson.
Thc family talent does rot descend to any great
extent to the next generation, for, though Joseph Jefferson-Mias a number of grandchildren, Lauretta, a
daughter of Thomas Jefferson, is tbe only ono who
has had any desire for the stage. "Kip" often tried to
g.t his grandchildren to lake up acting, but with no
success; and Mrs. Thomas Jefferson (Eugenie Paul
Jefferson) describes in her "intimate Recollections of
Joseph Jefferson" how on one oeeoslon, when his
granddaughter.-, took the part of guests in a ballroom
scone, they hid behind tho plants ond the props for
fear that they would be seen.
I*auretln Jefferson played the part of Meenie, tn
•'Rip Van Winkle," in hcr father's company for several seasons. Ono of Joseph Jefferson's groat-grandchildren, while not adopting tiie Stage, appeared In
one of the children's parts witli Thomas Jefferson.
Khe is tlosophlne Itolfe, a granddaughter of Charles
Burke Jefferson.
Probably the best known of the American players,
who are Just ns popular With the present generation
as their forbears wero In the curly part of the lasl
century, are the Drews and the Hurry-mores. LoulSO
Drew Is tile only one in direct succession bearing thc
family name who represents tho fourth generation
on the stage. Her cousins, John and Lionel Barry-
more and Ethel Barry more Colt, wero fortunate in
hnvlng two   gifted   members   of   tho   stage,   Maurice
Barry more and Georgle brew- for their parents. Ethel
Barrymore. indeed, seems to havo inherited the histrionic abilities of hor talented grandmother, Mrs.

in England, and of his wife, Eliza Tranter, au actress
and a singer of ballads In her youth. Mrs. Lane later

in 1887.
Mrs. Drew, wnn was born In 1S20, wns married
