America's Host Conspiclous Financial Figure
Passes Away After Several Days Illness
Rome, April 1.—J, Plorpout Mor-|
Kan, the New Votk financier, died
hero yesterday n low minutes alter
noon. Kor months his health had'
been declining, hut tho symptoms be-'
came greatly aggravated about a
week ago, and since Wednesday last]
he had hern in ,, scmi-eumntosc con-!
ititlon. Tonight bis body, lying in
the death chamber, is Bur rounded hy
flowers, of which many are pink carnations. Mossages of sympathy
have la-en received from King Victor
Emmanuel, officials of slate, the diplomatic representatives anil from
many personal friends in all parts
of thc world.
The official statement prepared by
Dr. Giuseppe BastinollI, Dr. M.
Allen Starr and Dr. G. A. Dixon,
the attending physicians, indicates
that a gradual general collapse, foi-1
lowed a condition of nervous prostration which prevented the digestive
organs from performing? their functions and affected the mental faculties. I
For fivo days Mr. Morgan received
artificial nourishment, but was unable to assimilate food. As n result,
he very rapidly lost strength.
For many hours prior to his death
ho was in a. state of seini-comatose,
which prevented him from recognizing those about him. His end was
without suffering.
Mr. Morgan's daughter, Mrs. Herbert Satterlee, who has been in con-!
stant attendance, was at the bedside.
She held the hand tf her father and
tried to obtain some recognition. Shot
thought that, when tbe supreme moment came he faintly pressed her
hand. Mr. Satterlee and tho physicians carried the weeping woman out
of tbe room where friends tried to

the embassy, George 1'. Wheeler and
Mrs. Wheeler, who went to the
hotel this afternoon lo inquire about
Mr. Morgan, were there when the
death was announced, Tiny remained to oiler their services and
express condolence. All the Rome
newspapers publish tributes lo Mr.
Morgan, expressing thc deep sense of
the loss felt hy the Italian people.!
It has been suggested th.it Mr. Morgan's body should be taken to the
United States on board a warship,   I

Morgan reaches hen* from Rome it is
OJtpcctod that the funeral services
will be held in the cathedral of    st
John the  DlVlne,   lowawl   the        eon
struct ion (,f which Mr Morgan was a
largo contiibnl.il
III the financial district, Ihe stock
exchange and the consolidated exchange passed resolutions of respect
to his memory, and Hags everywhere
were dropped to,halt-mast, 'lite offices of >l. I'. Morgan and To. closed
as soon as the news of thc death
was received. The statement was
made that business would be carried
on undisturbed by the momliers of
the firm. The morbid were in force
in the vicinity of, thc Morgan home,
and at ono time reached such proportions that it became necessary to
request the police to disperse them.
The immediate, effect on the machinery of Wall Street of Mr. Morgan's
death was comparatively! slight. On
the stock exchange the news from
Rome had largely spent its force
within fifteen minutes alter the
opening of tho market. Mr. Morgan's illness had prepared thc financial district for the end, and every
caution had been taken to guard
against a serious break in prices.
Friends pointed out another reason, in addition, to the warning given
by his illness, why thc financier's
deatli was not seriously disturbing.
His career, they said, was rounded
out, he.had accomplished virtually all
he had started out to accomplish.
For some time the Morgan firm had
refrained from large new enterprises.
All that human foresight could dictate had been done during thc last
year or so to safeguard the business
and financial world against calamity
when Mr. Morgan's last hour came.
■I. I'ierpont Morgan, Jr., has been
his father's understudy for years,
and is classed high in financial ability. His preparation to take his
father's place in the business world
has been thoroughly worked out.
Tb? extent of Mr. Morgan's philan-
iiDpnit- guts inoimmy tPfli never' be
known- Probably his largest gift
was $l,50n,ono toward ihe building
ol the cathedral of St. John the
Divine in this city. For the
founding of lhe great lying-in hospital near St. Georges church, of
which Mr. Morgan was a warden, he
donated $1,300,000. Harvard benefited by lus munificence to the extent ol $1,500,000, with which was
built the medical school in Boston,
Trinity college was given $250,000
for a library.
As ;1 patron ot art. Mr. Morgan
wns as famous as in the world of
finance, it was only needed lot
him to see some painting, statue ot
other work ,.f art that struck his artistic fancy nnd he would buy al
once. His- collection iu lhe Metro
politan Museum of Art has been estimated to be worth $40,000,000.
His private museum next to his pri
vate home holds paintings, carvings
tapestries, hooks, manuscripts, bron
cs and antique gold and silver wan
valued at many millions. In his

The prime Object of the San Dtt1

American continents, Neatly, every
western state will have elaborate
exhibits, demonstrating tlieir
sources and attractiveness to the
prospective settler. Nearly all o
the countries ol Central America.
and several iu South America, reaching out for immigrants and capital,
also will install exhibits. The purpose of the exposition is to show to
all visitors a place where he may
find conditions suited to bis temperament and his finances. Tbo management of the exposition felt that the
story of the opportunities of the
west would lie incomplete without nn
exhibit from Canada.
Tho suggestion is made to the Canadian officials that -, collective exhibit, of Canada's resources—agricultural, mining and forestry—lxi made,
uViiroimtratiiin to the honreseeker and
investor the splendid opportunities
awaiting them in Canada, particularly in the Canadian northwest. Thc
opening of the canal is expected to
direct to the western coasts hundreds of thousands of desirable Immigrants from Europe aud doubtless
thousands of these will seek new
homes in the Canadian northwest. As
the San Diego exposition is designed
lo direct these to places of greatest
individual opportunity. It is believed here I hat Canada would add
greatly lo the population development of the northwestern provinces

Missionary K. Baynes, formerly of
Kootenay, who is now lecturing for
tho Hritish Columbia government in
the old country, has forwarded to thc
publicity commissioner, tlie following
from a Manchester newspaper, in
which a tribute is paid to the fruit
of this province:
British Columbia might, well be
described as the paradise of the fruitgrower, for never was there a liner
display of apples than that seen on
the stand of the British Columbia
government at the Manchester winter
exhibition at Rusholmc and considering the fruit) had travelled a distance of 0,500 miles and had been
previously exhibited at Vernon, 11.
C, it was really wonderful that it
was in such a magnificent condition.
Although the industry is still in its
infancy there is every prospect of a
greal ami successful future for fruit
culture in this, Canada's largest, and
perhaps most fertile province. The
stand, which hy the invitation of
Hon. Price KUisoit, minister of finance and agriculture in Hritish Columbia, is in charge of II. S. Sa-
ville, of Lynn, is one of the most
attractive in the exhibition, and
crowds of people visit it daily to
see thc produce of this prosperous
province. The fruit which is of both
the desert and cooking varieties has
been principally grown in the Okanagan and Kootenay districts and fruitgrowers in this district should not
miss the opportunity of visiting the
exhibition to see thc great chances

The death ol Dr De Laval last
month at Stockholm, Sweden, reminds one that it is just thirty-five
\ears since thc first cream separator
was Invented. Up to is;s the only
method in use for separating cream
from milk was the gravitation process, setting thc milk in pans or cans
and allowing the cream to rise to
the top. Ir» that year Dr. De Laval
perfected and placed upon the market
the first centrifugal machine for separating cream from milk, and set
in motion forces that have effected q
revolution in dairy operations the
world oVol This was not his only
invention, however. He later Invented the steam turbine whidh hears
his name, the milk tester, the centrifugal churn, an emulser, a mechanical cow milker, and other machines nol directly connected with
daining. His work in behalf of
dairying, however, stamps him ns
one of the chief inventors of his time.
Remove the centrifugal cream sepnr-
tor from the dairy field today, and
the Industry would drop back a
quarter of ,. century, the production
cost of butter would be increased,
and dairying generally would be less
profitable than It is. Dr. Dc Laval's work tltereforc will live as long
as a cream separator is in use. It
docs its work so perfectly today
that it is difficult to see how it can
ever be replaced as an effective machine for quickly and economically
separating tlte cream from milk. It
has conferred untold benefits upon the
dairyman, and through him upon
every consumer of dairy products thc
world over. Many honors were bestowed upon Dr. Dc Laval. From
the King of Sweden he received distinguished honors, and his work received recognition from scientific societies and other societies in no unstinted form.! He not only invented
the cream separator, hut early identified himself with its manufacture
nnd became the founder of the separator concern whieh bears his name.

Being excerpts from an article recently published in Canadian Colliers
concerning the premier ami the political plight, of the province.
II Hritish Columbia were blockaded, wen* the C.P.R.'s single track
dynamited, and the American bonier
blocked—she. eoiihl he starved lo
death in a lew weeks. That is
something for the premier's imperialist and militarist Iriends to think of.
When Sir        Kiohanl        Mc
Bride feelingly exclaimed
"How can yon expect me to
protect this coast if Mr. Horden does
not give me ships!" ihe proper answer would have been: "And where,
good Sir Itichard, would you get
bread and meat, which is quite as
important as ammunition for those
ships if you bud 'em'.'" II would all
depend on the passes being open to
the C.I'.It.—a thing any despised -lap
would .spoil with a single .stick of
dynamite. With a pathetic wave of
a plump hand and n dash of "grand

By one means and another a pedei
tal lias been built under the feet of
Sir Richard McBride, so that he now
looms large in almost every Conservative situation. By judicial press-
ngcnl work, and hy one or two successful gallery 'plays, such as the
lime when Sir Richard ordered a
liflcen-l'housand-dollar reception given Sir Wilfrid Laurier by Hie province, he has become a widely known
figure, London receives him whenever he can make an excuse to get
away. He gets publicity other men
cannot gel.
British Columbians will sometime*
recite lhe. history of this man to
you in a manner as much o£ to say:
"What do you easterners make of
il?" lie is a little over forty, and
yet iu all Hhoso years has mil done,
Ihey say, one thing— except his own
mi nf political courage already referred to—to justify the position he
holds. Born at New Weslminslsr,
son of the Irish warden of the provincial Jail, he passed an ordinary
boyhood, ,an ordinary career at
school and at Dalhoiisie university in
Nova; Scotia. IBs advent in the
practice of law in British Columbia
was most modest, not lo say obscure. IBs achievements la his fusty|
ollice, and before whatever tribunals
his eases led him, were prosaic. Few
people knew of Richard McBride until as ".ludney Dick" he resigned
from thc Dunsmuir ministry on a
minor point, and on the fall of the
Prior ministry, shortly afterward,
was asked to form a government by
Hie lieutenant-governor, because tbe
older, wiser, and seemingly more able
politicians were busy arguing among
themselves, Hesitating, they, were
lost, and McBride found. |
There may be nothing actively  bad   examples,
about the administration. There   arc   ish Columl;
least unrest and opposition, but in
British Columbia popular opinion is
"doped" by the smell of sweet promises; and the opinions of the more
solid and more critical members of
thc community are made ineffectual
by the party machinery.

What, then, is lhe use of all these
members tlf the legislature? They are
unnecessary as a "support" to the
government, because the government
needs no supporl beyond ils own political organization outside tho chamber. Most of them are engaged in
hugging close lo the person of the
prime minister and the attorney gen-
oral in order thai at convenient, seasons they may lip Hie ears of these
gentlemen toward their own supplications for public works in Mieir constituencies,
Nol a breath uf scandal has ever
touched Sir Richard McBride and his
cabinet. How could it, with two
lonely Socialists representing the
only possible source of criticism in
the country? The Liberal papers, a
valiant two or three, have long since
worn oul their voices. A young Canadian who went west and took active charge of an opposition paper
was made lo feel the disapproval of
lhe august government, and by the
means of a little judicious pressure
upon his employers, ]iis services were
dispensed with.

When thei preachers in Vancouver

there, Take thc story of the land,
the story of the farm, in British Co-
knnbia. It is In that that, the misfortune of what is potentially the
greatest province in Canada is made
You can buy the best farm land in
Ontario for a thousand dollars an
acre. .You can obtain .some of Hie
best land in what Ontario people Ilka
to call "she Garden of Canada," ia
the Niagara district, for less. Yet so
apparently unaware is the British
Columbia government if the pustules
of sound economics that a farm reasonably near a good market in British Columbia Is worth anything from
$100 to $1,000 an acre, and its products are proportionately valuable.
And British Columbia, remember,
contains some of the best fanning
country in the world. It has uncounted fertile valleys. Fruit from
one or two of them is already famous in the shops of London. Its potatoes are the wonder of the C.P.R.
dining cars. Its vegetables have a
flavor belter far than ever Ontario
vegetables can boast, and yet tlio
products of the farm In Vancouver
and Victoria ale almost as valuable

camp. The man Who owns even 0
few, acres in British Columbia, and
can get his goods to market, has no
need to bay oil shares or gold stock.

than in .Toronto or Montreal, tho
cost of living is much higher. 1
hesitate to state the price, the grocer
quoted on new-laid eggs, for fear 1
may have made some sort of mistake
in my notes.
If tho farmer receives high prices
he must also pay high prices, as I
have already indicated. A number
of families from the south of England have taken up farms in Vancouver Island at astonishing eost./rhey
have the means. They like the
climate. It is their privilege to pay
what) they please. But the plain
working farmer who has to slave,
and slave hard for his living, cannot
afford to pay those prices. Land is
too dear.
The only possible explanation runs
this way: Sir Richard McBride, finding himself with a rich province under his hands, with vast areas of
crown lands, such as other provinces
have not been given—and with no one
to caro what he did—did what any
amateur might have done, neglected
tho farm. lie gave away timber

and so on, because it made him
Iriends and caused 0 spectacular increase of population in British Columbia. Also, it was thfl easiest
thing to do. As a result he has
made real estate a paying business*
and that, is about all. This doughty
little general left his commissariat
behind, and although mine, and forest, and sea may yield millions,
British Columbia must send an,enormous proportion o[ its total millions
back to tho.se countries where men
have not forgotten the importance of
keeping food in the house.
A land settlement policy and a
railway policy were the first things
Hritish Columbia required. The railway policy she has, at a price, but
since money is no object to t'lie
province, and if has u balance id
about $7,111111,1X111 lying idle iu the

In the past year, according to the
statement of the chief forester, over
twenty per cent ol the fires which
Ine forest rangers had to fight were
caused by campers.
The list which appears in thc annual report of the forest branch
shows that fires originated as follows:
Campers  38
Railway locomotives  34
Lightning  23
Donkey engines  11
Railway construction  11
Public road construction   0
Uncontrolled permit fires   8
Smokers   7
Accidents  0
Logging railways  6
Prospectors  3
Indians   3
ltow many of the 188 (ires of which
the causes are still unknown were the
result of an untended camp fir(. is
open to surmise, hut as in most of
the other risks such as railway aud
road construction, and logging operations the existence of fire is at once
known, the camper may be Justly
held to account for a very large proportion of the season's conflagrations.
Stringent regulations have been
passed hy the Board of Railway
Commissioners of Canada to cover
the risk of new railroads under construction in the province, the patrol
has been doubled on thc rights-of-
way, and every possible precaution
urged upon logging operations, The
forest branch is endeavoring to cooperate in every way with those
who have work to perform which is
attended   with danger to tho forest
But the greatest danger of all—that
of the man who is careless with his
camp fire—still remains open, and it
can bo removed only by increased
watchfulness on tho part of every
individual who uses the woods for
pleasure or profit.
Tbis year tin* officers of the forest
branch expect a harder season than
ever before. The very conditions ol
dampness and consequent heavy
growth of grass and weeds whicli
made the year 1012 one of the host
in thc history of the province from
tlie standpoint of fire protection, will
combine to make the great fire hazard this spring.
The rangers now appointed by the
branch are being given particular in-
StruCtlOhs With regard to warning
campers and securing their co-operation in keeping down tho danger to
thc forest.
Thc six simple rules which the
rangers will impress upon all those
they meet in thc woods are:
1. Be sure your match is out before you throw it away.
2. Knock out your pipe ashes    or

But to he a real success you must
form a syndicate, send an agent or
two to Toronto, Seattle, Chicago,
Winnipeg, Vancouver, Tacoma or Victoria, authorize them to buy at $1
each, or less, thc "right to purchase" which any crowd of loafers
may have. Stake out'as many acres
as your "rights to purohase" will
cover. Present your certificates to
thc provincial government, together
with credentials   showing whose
friend you arc, if possible, and you
may then stake thousands of acres,
and sell the same to credible persons
in England, or even to the v
"sucbers" whose "rights" you
bought so cheaply, and reap your
profit before you have even had to
pay over the initial acreage charge to
thc government, It is noteworthy
that while the bona fide settler may
choose wrong lands and he ousted
from them, these syndicates never
seem to have any difficulty securing
vast tracts. It is also noteworthy
that in Alaska syndicates that tried
the same, trick in regard to coal
lands got into very serious trouble
with tho law—even the United
States law. A certain man happened to sec in the cryptic publication,
the Hritish Columbia "Cassette,"
that his young son had applied lor
"What's this, son?" lie said.
"That, oh, why I don't want any
land, father, hut a man came up to n
bunch of us the other night anil
wanted us to sign some papers about
our rights to buy farm land, lie gave
us each a dollar and—well I signed
because thc other boys did.,What's
wrong about it, dad?"
Wrong.      Nothing    wrong.    Jacob
worked that game years ago.
Of course, men who own established farms near good markets like
Victoria are not always averse to
maintaining conditions which make
tho value of their acres soar, I met
a storekeeper in Nanaimo who l"1'*
0( buying 150 acres on Gnbriolc Island, thirty acres of ii cleared, for
$3,500. in fifteen months he sold it
out for 57,500, and now (a year later) the owner refuses 515,000. Farm
land is indeed a commodity in a province where iL premium is placed
against, settlement, and the prices of
produce and land alike go kiilini*,. The
storekeeper in bis conversation expressed no disapproval ol tlio Mcllridc inefficiency which permitted
him his little profit.
From lhe standpoint or lhe would-
be settler, the difficulty of getting
lands does not matter. He can easily
drop over into Alberta and secure all
that lie needs without running risks
in British Columbia. Hut the
householders of Vancouver and Victoria are the ones it hits hardest.
They have tn pay the grocer and
Pat Burns. When their profits begin to fall, and business comes down
to a nearer normal basis, these
people will feel the lack of A land
settlement policy and the presence of
high prices, and will squeal. Some of
them may even leave Hritish Columbia for places where food is cheaper.
The answer of Premier Mcllridc to
attacks on ids lack of a land settlement policy would undoubtedly lie
promises and excuses, but those who
have observed his career answer I hat
it is too late to promise, The new
hired man who forgets that horses
go in front of plows seldom succeeds
iu convincing people that lie* is a
farmer, no matter how ho explains or
promises. Far be it from tliis article to "knock" Hritish Columbia.

Edmonton, April JS,—Short-term
prisoners will hereafter work out
their lines ou a model farm, to be established by tho municipality at a
cost of $13,000 on a plot of land
near Big Island, on the Saskatchewan river, -twelve miles southwest
of here. This will be the lirst prison farm in Western Canada, Frederick W. Lyons, now in the employ of
the provincial government of Ontario at Ciuclph, will be superintendent of the institution. Eight thousand dollars of the'cost will be borne
by current revenue, the balance being
raised hy the sale of debentures, run-
ring ten years.
Mr. Lyons will have two assistants on tho farm, fifty acres of
which has been under cultivation.
The prisoners will assist in erecting
lhe necessary buildings, in addition
lo replacing those already on the
ground, and will clear the land of
fallen frees. The wooded portion ot
the farm will be cleared and cultivated, tho hillsides being reforested. The
land will be used for dairying,
truck farming, poultry growing and
gardening, the output being sold in
local markets al prevailing prices.
There are several large deposits oi
gravel and sand along the bank of
the river, the products of which are
to be used for building purposes. Investigations also will be made to de-
termine    the existence   of   clay
manufacturing purposes.
R. B. Chadwick, head of thc
part ment of neglected children
Alberta, who has had a varied
perience with delinquents of
classes, says Mr. Lyons will give a
good account of his work, predicting
also that the model prison farm will

Almost anyone wilh a garden or
farm in a temperate climate can
grow tomatoes with greater or less
success but there is a great difference
between the extent and quality of the

arc due to several causes among
which the varieties grown nnd methods of cultivation practised are perhaps the chief.
