Council then adjourned,
Dolegptcs to tbe number of between
1 In it and tout hundred gathered ut
Vancouver last week end for tbe annual provincial Liberal convention
The gathering was a surprise in
many respects. It was felt that ll
would in: impossible to secure anything like a representative cotivcntiou,
whereas there assembled in Vancouvci probubly the most thoroughly representative gathering of tlcb.-jial.es
that lias ever been held in this province. Moreover the spirit auhnalhg
this great convention was characteristic of Liberalism at its best. There
was no failure to face the facts.
Every delegate present fully recognised the ditliciilt.il s of the situation
They realized that the McBri.te-Uo'V-
ser government had taken them at a
di sail vantage, by rushing on the elections two years before they wcrn tie J,
that the government would appeal to
the country on a new and, generally
speaking, popular railway policy,
with the added advantage of enormous public worka appropriations.
Yet in face ol these obstacles to a
full, fair and free discussion of public
issues, it was the obvious determination of every delegate present, in so
far as possible, to force something
like a critical examination of .lie gov
ernment's record and to place bofori
thc electorate an alternative policy
having for its object the conservation
of public resources in the interests ot
the people. In thc necessarily brief
summary of proceedings that follows,
including the platform and resolu
tions adopted, .sufficient will bo indicated to show clearly the thorough
nature of tlie discussions and thc
businesslike attitude of thc delegates
on thc various subjects affecting lhe
welfare of thc province.
The convention was called to order
at* 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon
and continued in session until midnight on Friday, a lurtber session of
the executive iH'ing held on Saturday
morning.

sent thai constituency in tbo Dominion house of commons; and bt* it lurtber resolved that we express our
sincere bono thai he may be Ion..;
spared to champion the rights of the

"That the Liberal party of the

record Its keen appreciation ol the
undivided attention, active interest
antl excellenl wort ol Mr. 11. C.
Brewster, member for Alberni, during
the past six sessions in the lefjisla-
tuie ol the province, his manly stand
on all public questions and who
without assistance 1ms ably acted on
all i ccastons in the interests of the
people."
"Resolved, that this convention
plate on record In the strongest possible manner its reprobation of the
spirit displayed by lho McBrldc-Bow-
w-r governmenl throughout the late
session, and in the grossly unfair ui-
rangoments for the present election,
with the lived determination apparently to make Us already much too
strong rule absolute nnd crush out
by thr gross abuse of brute majority
toice the l.tst    vestige of Independent
opposition |n this province."
"-.Resolved, that the McBride-Bowsor
government, in rushing prorogation
and dissolution ol tho leglslatu
Within n lew days after Introducing
extraordinary and unprecedented rs-
tlmates .,f expenditure, and an important railway policy involving the
addition of many millions to the lifl-
hiiitn** ol iii- province, thus railroading this vast financial legislation
through the legislature, practically
without au opportunity for consideration and discussion, has disregarded
ordinary constitutional usage and
safeguards, nnd has given rise to the
gravest suspicion as to thc Root!
faith ol Ibe administration and forfeited the confidence ol the people."
"Wc unhesitatingly condemn the refusal of the provincial government to
re-enact tbe Natal Act, on lhc ground
Ihat it would embarasi the Dominion
government, Wo stand for a whit*'
llritish Columbia, nnd advoeaie continuously Increasing stringency in
immigration laws until tbe result is

"We advoeaie that Immediate steps
be taken to restore the fishing indus-
Iry io white fishermen. Protection ot
llritish Columbia fisheries from tor
nu.li poachers hy the adequate polic-
[ng ol Canadian waters.
The present system ol land regis-
tration is expensive, cumbersome and
bads to scandalous delay In registering laud transactions. We advocate
the adoption of the Torrens system
uf titles and reduction of the registration fees.
"Wo condemn tlw shortsighted
policy ot the government in alienating the timber lands ou watersheds
tributary to eilies, towns and municipalities. It is tlw immediate duty
of the government to remedy this
mischief caused by this mistaken
policy.
"Coal not to be alienated, but
leased under conditions to be lind
periodically by the legislature-
' Wherever pracl icable, government
operation of a limited area of coal
mines Iti be at once undertaken with
view to reduction of existing
pi ices.
We insist upon the appointment of
a nival commission to investigate the
present exorbitant coul prices.
"Increase of 1,cal control in muni-
pal matters.       Klcction   of license
and police   commissioners by popular
vote,
"The   Liberal   party denounces the
n United    suppress ion   of the public
counts, anil   demands the organization   of au auditor-general's    department independent of the n.vcinment.
A further    resolution on the same
bjeel,   moved by Mr.    .1. K. Nor-
oss and seconded by Mr. L. D. Taylor, was:
"Tbnt   whereas the public accounts
-tiimittcf. has   met only once during
the term    ot olficc    of Premier   Mc
Itride;
And whereas, in the absence ol an
Independent      provincial       auditing
board, the   presentation of the public
accounts to    the committee is        the
ile.   guarantee   that the public has
that the   funds    voted for the public
rvice arc properly applied;
"Ile it   resolved   that this convention    unanimously   i-oudeuins tbe deliberate suppression   of tlw* public accounts  committee by tlw government
nml the deprivation of thc people    ul
Dm ish Columbia uf   one ot tbo principal guarantees provided under     the
llritish constitution.
"Antl !w it. further resolved that we
demand a royal commission to examine the public accounts since l'Mrt
on."
The establishment of a Canadian
navy was endorsed in a resolution
slating: 'That we heartily cud-use
tin* naval policy of Canada as inaugurated hy the Laurier government
with the lull approval of the Hritish

HOW CHRONIC COUGHS
Are Being Cured by Vinol
New Haven, Conn.—"I was troubled
with a molt peraistent chronic coukIi
for a long time and had tried ho many
romedlei and prescriptions without
benefit tbat I was discouraged. 1 waB
persuaded by my friends to try Vinol. After taking the second bottle,
my cough left me, and I must say 1
never felt better iu my life. I can also recommend Vlnol to any ono In .1
run-down condition as the best possible remedy."
It la the combined action of tho
medicinal elements of tho coils' livers, aided by the blood-mnkine; ami
strength-creating properties of tonic
iron which makes Vinol so efficient In
curing chronic coughs, colds und
bronchitis—at the same time building
np the weakened, run-down system.
Try a bottle of Vlnol with the understanding that your money will be
returned If It does not help you.

EDITORIAL NOTES
That Liberalism is hy no means
dead in this province was clearly
manifested at the groat provincial
convention heltl in Vancouver last
week. Owing to sovece reverses,
both in the provincial antl dominion
fields, in recent years, the Liberal
party in British Columbia had boon
pretty tiadly shattered and the outlook for its revival seemed poor in
deed. The McBride-Bowser govern
ment evidently determined to put it
out of existence altogether. Eloe
tions were brought on two year:
ahead of time ami enormous ptihlii
works appropriations provided whero
with lo Influence the electorate, lu
response to this challenge there assembled in Vancouver the largest,
most enthusiastic and most determined convention of Liberals ever held
in this province. Whilst the utmost
enthusiasm prevailed throughout thc
sessions this enthusiasm was characterized hy a sincerity of purpose und
-,i full recognition of the difficulties
to he encountered, The measure of
the convention can best lie guaged by
Hie plalform and resolutions adopted,
which an- published iu full elsewhere
in this issue. Liberalism is alive
and active iu this province. It may
In- that in face of the heavy odds
confronting it at this juncture,
comparatively little headway will be
mado iu the coming general election,
but Unit the tide lias turned and that
Literalism will prevail in this prov
Ince In lhc near future is as sure as
any political prediction can well be.
Owing io the very abort Mine at
lowed by tbo McBrWe-Bowser gov
emmenl in which lo organize for the
campaign it may be that the Liberals will be unable to place oandldatos
in lho field in every constituency, but
thej will certainly contest a sufficient
number ol seals to afford ample opportunity of conducting such an educational campaign as will serve to
awaken the electorate generally to a
sense of lhe situation and to pave
ibe way for the complete defeat ol
the government lour vears hence.
Oadsby, ol the Montreal Herald,
thus concludes some excellent com
inent, on the result in South Hen
Irew:
"Ol course, defeat is had medicine
even to a government with a ma]oi
ity ol filly-five, and somebody bas It
bo the goat. Strangely enough, Dr
Keid is putting It all. Cochrane
goes scot free. Considering all the
circumstances, and chewing then
over again, the opinion ■■*, expressed
by his party friends that ".lack Held
made a liirtLe-hend play."
Some queen rumors are afloat, One
is Ihat there is a cabinet Intrigue to
oust Premier Borden because he was
weak sister, and allowed a hopeless
ridirifi to he contest* d. You don't
need to believe all you hear, but just
compare Premier Borden's weakness
in opening the constituency and Bob
lingers' strength of mind in keeping
bis nose out ol it."
Citi/ens generally would wclcomo
some definite statement from the city
council as lo the probability of an
early start being made with thc. laying of concrete sidewalks along Baker
street, from the station to tbe government offices. The Herald has
taken some pains to arrive at a fair
estimate ol the cost of this work,
which would add so much to thc appearance of the city aud to thc
value of Baker street property. On
the basis of the cost in Macleod,
Alt-u., where concrete sidewalks were
recently laid down, the cost locally
would hi- a little under ten thousand
dollars, Including 30,000 square feet
ol sidewalk, 7000 feel of crossing and
.-.000 feet of curbing. But, as the
Macleod costs may be a little lower
than it would be possible to secure
here, we have worked out the costs
at 25 cents, instead of 17; cents, thc
Macleod cost, which brings the total
cost ol sidewalks on Baker street to
$10,750, and ol curbing, at SO cents
instead ol M cents, to $1500, or
total of 113,250, which would mean a
cost of 1185 per lot for every lot on
Baker street. In thc event, of this
work being done partly on a front am
tax and partly on a general tax,    it

heavy and dramatic. Miss Page has
a musical soul, a fact very evident
before she had played over a hall
dozen bars, but it was brought out
in all its warmth and beauty when
as an    encore,   she   responded    with
Annie    Laurie."       This  was
questionably one   of    the most
trancing    performances    ever    given
here.
Her double stopping and modulation were of tbc highest musical
merit, swees, soothing and rich,
flowery and elaborate without being
overdone—a hoquet abounding in such
musical perfume that the audience
wus charmed. Her stage presence Is
youthful una fleeted ness itself.
Mr. Ernest (iambic, Uie basso can-
tante, has a voice of excellent quality
and volume, well placud and with lim-
breadth. His style is good and his
stage presence pleasing. He is
scholarly musical elocutionist and
rhetorician and he was deservedly
well received.

CLEAR OUT  VIEWS ON
THIS ISSUE.
In a preface to Mr. Harold Spend-
tr's "Home Rule," just published by
Messrs. Hodder and Stoiiffiton, Sir
Kdwanl Grey, secretary tor foreign
affairs, says:
"It must surely be clear today tc
many nf those who opposed the home
rule bill in 1893 that there ia a problem of which the solution is now
more urgent than ever. We who
wen' Oladstonian home rulers approached the problem originally from
tin* Irish side, those who did not
then approach it Irom that side refused to admit the existence of any
problem nt ull. Since that time circumstances have made It necessary to
approach Uie problem from the Hilt-

ish as well as Irom tho Irish side.
"Tlie British parliament has hitherto heen regarded as a model to be
imitated; it it continues to attempt
the impossible task ol transacting
business in detail, both local antl
imperial, it will end us an example to
be avoided. During the lust tilty
years the amount of work demanded
for particular portions of the United
Kingdom, for the United Kingdom as
a whole, or for tlie empire, has
creased enormously; in all three categories the work is still increasing
and will increase. One parliament
cannot do it all. This is one i
aspect ol thc home rule question.
"Mr. Spender states thc case with
force and smypathy from the Irish
point of view, with, which none of
us who were convinced supporters oi
home rule twenty years ago can ever
lose sympathy, and with which the
younger generation should make itself acquainted. lie makes also
very valuable and opportune review
tf recent changes in tbc .situation,
antl considers how home rule should
be adopted to British and imperial
needs and should serve them. The
whole bock is bho result of his own
rctlection, observation, and research:
the conclusions to which he comes
for tlte settlement of the financial
and other details < f home rule ought
to receive most- careful consideration
as valuable contributions to the discussion of the subject. But, of
course, they musl not he assumed
necessarily to he mine or to bc those
that will Im* adopted in the government bill.
"But I agree with him entirely
that home rule is necessary to heal
bitterness of Ireland, and to effect
that reconciliation without which
there cannot be real union; that 11 is
necessary to relieve parliament at
Westminster; and lo set it free lor
work that concerns the United Kingdom as a whole or the empire; in other words, tbat there Is n problem to
be solved, and that the lirst step in
solving it must he Irish home rule in
a form that opens the way for federal
home rule.
"In the autumn of 1010 a considerable part, at any rate, of thc Conservative party seemed ready to admit tbe need for some solution; today they have apparently drifted back
to the barren position of opposing all
proposals for home rule; if they were
to render this solution impossible
they would but make the problem
more urgent."
TOWNTOPIGS
Everything points to a gay ami
merry time at the Auditorium
Monday evening, March 18th, when
Tom Marks' company will present for
the first time in this city the gay
comedy in three acts, entitled "(lis
Irish Honor." Before booking this
attraction Manager Guerard had
numerous proofs of its great popularity as a big laugh maker. This is n
three act comedy with a most original story and extremely amusing
characters. It is thoroughly up-to-
date in the tone of its comedy aud
is a continuous laugh from the first
to lhe last, and its bright music and
popular song hits has made for it the
record breaker. Mr. Marks has
surrounded himself with an excellent
company of farceurs, who never fail
to keep the audience in good humor
throughout the entire performance.

Tlie steady rise in local ival estate

price of a few months back of $1700.
The Polmatirr Sisters company is
composed of five artists and it
would )h> a difficult task to get together another company of five that
could produce the varied programme
tliese labnted sisters put on for an
evening's entertainment. Miss Lu
Seha, the directress, not only directs thc orchestra and mandolin orchestra with a style and grace that
would make most ot thc male direc-
sors "sit up and take notice," but
she is a clever player on thc violin
am) mandolin, and has an excellent
alto voice, which is used effectively tn
the vocal trio and chorus work, and
her   up-to-date readings   with speeial
costumes, .she never fails to hold her
ludience spellbound. M.ss Helens E.
is u cornetist of rare ability and it is
doubtful if another lady would bo
found that could equal her ou this
difficult instrument. She also plays
thc mandolin and lias a fine soprano
voice. Miss I ma K. is a very accomplished enU'i-tainer. Her special-'
ties are the drums and traps, bells]
ami xylophone, mandolin, flute and.
piano. Sbe also has a good soprano
voice, and with her artistic ability,
grace and unassuming ways, she
seems to captivate her audience.
Miss Helen Harnett, the soprano
soloist, has u sweet and brilliant
voice welt under control, ami with
her up-to-date select songs, she always receives hearty applause. Sho
also plays guitar ami piano. David 0.
lho brother, is an exceptionally line
pianist, and his rich baritone voice is
used to advantage in the solo and
chorus work of tho musiczl acts. One
can see ni a glance that this is an
out of the ordinary combination, antl
if you like an up-to-date varied programme do not miss this grand
treat.
P. DoVerc Hunt has returned from
a business trip to Waldo and the
Baynes Lake districl. Mr. Hunt
was amazed at the evidences of progress and prosperity every where noticeable iu these districts. Oood
settlers are steadily Hocking in and
evidently intend to make good. Mr.
Hunt saw two fine motor cars unloaded at Waldo during his stay
tliere. A. M. Beattle, of Waldo, a
very enthusiastic poultryman, will
present a silver cup to he competed
for at the next Cranbrook Agricultural exhibition hy tho poultrymen of
the district. Mr. llunl encountered
many otlier encouraging signs of interest in Cranbrock's big annual fair
and he confidently anticipates that
competition from outside points will
be far greater and keener this year
than ever before.
While away on a business trip
through the Waldo district, Mr. P.
■pcVcrc Hunt ran across Mr. Nai-
smilb, general manager of tbe
Alberta Railway and Irrigation company, who is just about joining forces
with Mr. .1. S. Dennis at Calgary,
.who has charge oi the natural resources department of the C.P.R.'
Mr. Naismith will hereafter actively
devote himself to the work ol making
known the natural resources ot
Kast Kootenay and he was specially
laken with Mr. Hunt's suggestion re
making use of Cranbrook's big annual agricultural fair with that object in view. Mr. Naismith will Ih1

We are glad 1o say thai the annuities system has not been aliolislitnl.
In transferring the branch to tli"
post offlce department under the administration ot the postmaster general, it is believed that a wider publicity will be given lo the system,
ami thai both old and young will
more readily loam of the opportunity
parliament has afTorded them of
making provision for old age; the
postmasters now becoming active,
while formerly they were only passive, agents of the branch. The bene*
Ills will, of course, bo more apparent
where payments are begun at an early
age, the accumulation being longer,
antl the marvelous earning power of
compound interest at t per cent being
more slrikingly demonstrated; and
there is always the danger if payment
is deferred to a late age that unfortunate investments or expend.tin*
may be made, and the necessary
amount be not then available. There
is no time like the present.
Full information in regard to thc
various plans on which annuities may

The joy td tin* Polish festive season
marking tin* end id the "Id and the
beginning 11 tho new year was mar-
rod by national sorrow. A bill to
diminish tht* area ol the kingdom ol
Poland is din- im discussion iu the
Imperial Duma, aud it is practically
certain that a largo portion ol rast-
atn Poland will 1m* withdrawn Irom
the Jurisdiction of tho governor-genera! oi Warsaw and siAJecled to a
drastic process oi Russlficatlon,
This was the greatly ohcriahed project of the celebrated patriarch stai-
tsinan, Pobledonostzcff, procurator of
the Holy Synod, hut he did not live
lo set* it effected. His colleagues in
thc cabinet were opposed to It, and
Sipiatrin, Uu* minister of thc Interior, who was afterwards assassinated liv revolutionists, denounced it
as a measure of (oo reactionary a
character, Tin* scheme was revived
hy the late M. Stolypln, ami has
been received with favor hy n committee ul Un* Duma, whieh has boon
engaged in examining it for more
than a year. The proposal is Veenly
resettled in Russian Poland :\nd also
in Oalicla niul Posen.
There is no more Interesting contra
of Europe than tin* Chclm district of
eastern Poland, the territory in
question. It is a wild*and romantie
country with great forests where lhe
Polish nobles hunt the deer and the
wild hoar, it is untouched by the
modern spirit nf materialism' the
peasant still greets one with the
words, "May Jesus Christ he praised," antl his faith is as ardent as
was his forefathers' a thousand years
ago.       This is partly due to the laet
that a persecution, ol which the rest
of Europe knew little, raged in this
part ol Poland fiom 1878 until the
Czar granted his subjects freedom ol
religion hy the manifesto of April
1905,
In lhe year 1878 the Russian ,i*.ov
eminent decided that thf peasantry of
Chclm should become members of the
Ort-hodoi church. Most of them
were Vnlats, thai Is to say, they
were under the |urlsdlcHon of the
Holy See and accepted the creed ol
Rome, bul the services in the ohurcn-
es were similar to thos,. nf tht* Orthodox church, and their clergy were
married, The government thought it
Would Ih* an easy task to induce these
simple folk to substitute the procurator nf the Holy Synod for the Pope
as their spiritual head. The peasants, however, refused to obey, ami
Cossacks   were sent to convert them.
Some of the old people tell ol tlte
process ol conversion. In some places
when the inhabitants heard that   the
ed as Orthodox in spite ol protests.
In a few places peasants were shot
tlown at the ehurcli doors while trying to prevent bhe entrance of the
Cossacks.
(face registered as Orthodox it was
illegal for a peasant to receive the
BRcramcnts from a Latin or a t'niat
priest, A clergyman who broke the
low in this respect was liable to
exile in Siberia. The peasants
[us.d to accept the ministrations of
Orthodox clergy sent by tho
iriment, and, until 1905, there
a rcllgioloufi strike throughout)
tbc countryside. Jesuits, disguised
as pedlars, came from Austrian Poland to minister to the persecuted
peasantry. They said mass and administered tht* sacraments in the
heart of the forest.
When Nicholas II. granted religious liberty, a splendid measure ol reform due solely to the personal initial ive of the emperor, the Chclm district went mad with delight.
It hati been ho|>ed to Russify the
people of Chclm by making them
Orthodox; in becoming Roman Catholics they have also become more Intense)) Polish in sentiment, although
tliey are of little Russian origin*
The hill for iii.tkinti this dislrict into a purely Russian province is a new
attempt to Russify these unfortunate
people. The urea uf Russian Poland
has remained unchanged since 1816,
when Alexander I assumed the title
of King of Poland with the permission of (ireat Britain and tbc other
powers represented at the congress
of Vienna. The Poles, who eannot
forget ihe time when their sway ex-
11 mliil io the Hall it- on the north and
to KIcfl ou the east, are indicant at
tin- proposal to lesson the territory
which can claim the name of Poland.
They form the most conservative element in the Russian empire, and tin-
posit ion of the kingdom, a halter
province between Russia and Germain, would seem to he sufficient
reason for treating them with consideration.
Nothing, as Lord Castlereagh pointed OUI at the Congress of Vienna, is
more calculated to disafTect them
than the attempt to suppress their
language, their religion and their nationality. Tho Chclm bill provides
that the Polish language shall not lull l.'iated in the courts ot law, even
when a witness is ignorant ol Russian, that Polish shall not la* employed in schools, and Hint nn plays
shall be acted in Polish. Such provisions WOUnd the Polos to the quick,
and many hnpe that whatever the
Duma may do, the Council ol Empire   will     throw   out    a hill which

an anxious correspondent who, probably, had read the announcement

London, March 5.—There is now being built at Portsmouth, a warship
that will be over **S,01M> tons larger j
than the Dreadnought, and, further,
will ho able lo lire a broadside more
than twice as heavy as that of tho
record-breaking ship of 190(1.
The ship is thc first of thc live armored vessels, provided for in the
navy estimates of 1911-12 to bc laid
down. No name has yet been given
to her, bul it has been suggested that
she should he named Marlborough in
honor of Mr. Winston Churchill. The
ceremony of laying the first keel
plate was performed by Miss Moore,
sister of Admiral Sir A. W. Moore,
commander-in-chief at   Portsmouth.
Her displacement will Ite nearer
ati.miu than 25,000 tons—which means
thai she will he over 3,000 tons larger than the supcwDrcadnoughl
UiiUes'iip Orion, completed only a
fortnight ago.
Her armament wilt lie the same as
the Orion's ten 18.2 inch guns, hut
these are Of a greatly improvedlype,
aud instead of firing shells of 1,25(1
pounds, the weight will he 1,400
pounds. The broadside lire of the
ship will thus amount to 11,000
pounds as compared with 1,500
pounds from the Orion, and only
IS.800 pounds for the Dreadnought.
There will also lie a great Improvement in the weapons mounted
for tlie purpose of driving off hostile
torpedo craft. Hitherto, Hritish
ships have had only 1 inch i|ins for
this purpose, firing shells of 31
pounds, but the new ships will have
Iti six inch guns and all Tiring 100
pound shells, ten or twelve a minute.
Modern torpedo boat destroyers arc
so large and strongly built that the
4 inch gun could not In* relied upon
to keep them ut hay, hut thc 6 inch
gun will give the> new battleships
ample prelection against this form of
attack.
In case ol a Inrpedn ever getting
home on the side of the ship, however, the hull has heen divided and
subdivided in a manner, not hitherto
thought possible. The result of this
is that even if a torpedo should make
a hole iu the side not more than a
very small part of the ship would be
affected.
The new ship will also be faster
than our previous Dreadnought battleships, having a designed speed ol
tweftty-two knots in place of the earlier twenty-one.
When all five have been laid down
there will Ik* no lewer than thirty-
two ships of the "All-big-gun" type
built nnd building for tho llritish
navy.
Sixteen ol tliese will be ordinary
Dreadnoughts armed with 12 Inch
guns.
The remaining ships will he armed
with the 18,8 inch gun, aud thus will
In1 super-Dreadnoughts.
THE CRtlNJlOCMDE
(From the Calgary Albcrtan)
The reports of the grain blockade
in Southern Alberta are not exaggerated. The farmers arc unable to
market their grain and many thousands ol bushels of wheat are spread
out in rough and unprotected bins on
the prairie. When warm weather
comes it will seriously damage this
grain it there is no relief before that
time.     There is no relief in sight.
This is a deplorable condition ol affairs. This is not an exceptional
year. The blockade has been very
serious every year with thc exception
of last year, when there was but
little crop.
Thc railway company is unprepared
lo handle all thc grain that Is presented lor shipment. That is the
real meaning of it. Thc railway
company opposes a reciprocity which
it fears will open up wider market
and  additional    railway competition
for our    grain growers, but It is unable, to carry the grain to market.
The entire country is suffering. The
farmers cannot market the grain.
They cannot pay the merchant. The
merchant cannot pay tho wholesaler
or the manufacturer, and right along
thc line it goes.

About siv o'clock in 1he evening
Mr, Illake evinced a desire to he taken Irom the sitting room to his bedroom, but collapsed while walking
across the room on a nurse's arm.
Restoratives were applied, and Dr.
William Ooldie, the attending physician, arrived within tea minutes hut

to thc usual stimulant*.
Mrs. Blake and her daughter, Mrs.

Blake's seizure but were notified ot
his critical condition. When they
reached thc house Mr. Blake was unconscious, and tho end came soon alter. Since returning from England

THK
MAIL-BAGS      OF       THE
WORLD'S RULERS.
The mail bags at the Vatican probably contains thc largest number of
letters that arc addressed lo any
single person or institution. After the
Pope, thc Kaiser receives the greatest number! fully half lieing addressed
to him personally. Emperor William
has never less than 7,500 letters
daily, a goodly proportion of which
are appeals to right wrongs about
which he knows nothing and would
be powerless to act if he did. Many
are private diplomatic letters. After
him comes the president of tht* 1'nited States, who gets a daily average
of five thousand letters. The mail of
the present King of England has
dwindled to 2,500 letters, probably a
third of the numbei* received by his
father. The mail bag of the Tsar
is smaller still, about five hundred
persons writing daily to one well
known to Ik* hedged in by officialdom.
It is said tliat the royal palace in
Madrid gets three hundred letters, addressed for lho most part to his democratic majesty, the young Alfonso,
but a goodly share falling tn the lot
of the queen. The Italian King gets
only about two hundred letters daily,
while the mail-bag of the president
of France varies greatly. When the
foreign population in Paris is most
numerous, his mail reaches as high an
average as the American president,
but in other months the average is
comparatively small. It is said that
the emperor of Japan has only recently begun to be troubled in this
manner, letters to him lieing mainly
in the nature ft appeals to add by
swift anil glorious war to the territory of the sun kingdom,

Every Dollar
Of an Ad=Reader's Money
Is Above Par
Your dollars vary in value as
they vary in purchasing power.
The man or woman who studies
advertisements is able, frequently,
to make one dollar do the usual
work of two.
Frequently Its Buying
Power is Actually
Doubled
And the experienced reader of
advertisements will always make
a dollar command a premium —
make it buy MORE than a dollar's worth, as figured on " ruling
prices " of things.
How much " above par" are
the dollars in your pocket worth ?
It will depend on how closely you
study the buying opportunities
outlined in the store ads.
Nearly everybody understands
that a store's advertising, IF BIG
and PERSISTENT ENOUGH,
enables it to sell the same things
more cheaply, at a smaller per
sale profit than is possible to the
store compelled to base necessary
profits on smaller volume of sales.

Jill INCREASE
London, March 5.—Tbe estimates ol
expenditures for thc British army for
the fiscal year of 1912-13, including
both effective and noneffective services, aggregate $i:i.i.:*mkumiu, or an
increase of $850,000 over those of
the year 1911-12.
The entire increase in tlie estimates
is due to tbe proposed expenditure by
the government In development of
aviation in the British army, as it is
planned to spend $800,000 on the acquisition ol aeroplanes alone.
I n a memorandum accompany ing
the estimates, Viscount Haldane, secretary uf stale for war, says that a

and all the workshops necessary to
train officers of both the army and
