INTENDED   VISIT   WILL  OCCUR
IN 1311—OPEN   TORONTO
EXHIBITION.
New York, April 27.—The Brootc
lyn Eagle's London correspondent
writes as follows:
"I am able to announce definitely
that King George will visit Canada
in 10M.
"Only some such unexpected event
ns a Kuropean war involving En-gland or a family bereavement will
prevent this trip taking place,
"The King and Ins advisers are
taking pains iu keeping the proposed
visit secret, The*, Rto afraid thai
the Canadians m.iv he disappointed
and dread the King's Intentions being
announced at this distant date, \
meeting between King George und
President Wilson ;i( Niagara Falls is
likely lo fo' arranged in the none fu
tun* King Georgjo has announced
his willingness to open the Toronto
exhibition In August, IBM, and pre
parations for this event are already
being mode in conn circles. Ii will
he the first lime thai a King ol
England has ovei vUited Canada, it
is hoped that the Queen will accompany the King, but nothing is yet
daTmitcl) settled as regards this.
The Prince of Wales is likely to be
wilh his father ou this interesting
trip.
"lu Canadian circles here n visit
from the King has long heen anticipated- When Furl Grey wns govern-
nor-geiicral powerful representations
as to the desire ol the Canadian
people to see in person the King
were ma-do, The appointment of the
Duke of Connauglit as go ver no i'-general was in no small degree due to
the, royal appreciation of this sentiment, ' It is understood tbat the
Duke of Coniiaught lias cordially endorsed the earnest solicitation of tlu*
Canadian; government, and people to
which the King has now accorded so
far as his plans can he arranged in
advance.
"Lord SUathconn, the veteran
high commissioner of Canada, said
yesterday: "No people of tho empire
arc more loyal or more attached lo
the King than, the Canadians. His
majesty received evidence of this in
1880 wiien the Boer war broke out.
Should tlie King go now or nt any
subsequent lime it would be impossible for him to receive a liner welcome in any part of the world   than
Canada.'
"It has been suggested that the
warship on which the Kinc will make
the trip to Canada should be diverted
to Sandy J look, so thai Kin?
George can see in person what happens to the Four Leaved Shamrock.
"It is not likely that ihe King
could go ashore at New York, but if
it can lie suitably arranged he would
be glad to see one or two of tlte
tries for the America cup.
"During the King's absence from
Knglanfi tlie royal prerogatives will
be vested in n commission similar to
that which was appointed when ho
went to India to receive the homage
of his subjects in that empire. Pol
reasons of state it- may be flecWcd
tbat tho Prince of Wales stay in
Kuglaud while his father is abroad.
"The trip to Cnnaria is only the
forerunner of others. ll is King
George's ambition to lie the first
king to visit not only Canada, bul
nlso  vustrallQ and South  \frloa."

LOCAL INVENTOR WRITES
OF HI
NEW McBRlDF   INCUBATOR CONSTRUCTED ON SCIENTIFIC
PRINCIPLES,
Kor years we huxe hud correct
measurement in regulation of heat ml
the incubators, Inn moislure and veh>
Illation wefe never thought possible
lo be brought under control; in fact I
some have said tluit it could not be
done.
At the present time all InculrfUor
men realize that it takes more moislure than is contained in the egps to
bring off a good hatch. This is
prouil hy tbe various means they
lake to supply artificial heat. For
instance, some sprinkle the eggs periodically during the hatch, others
cover the eggs with damp cloths,
while others go so far as to place
pails of hot water under the lamp so
as to get vapor into th.* machine,
all of this work being left entirely to
the judgment of lhe person wbo is
operating the machine. The same
may be said of the ventilation also,
for it will he observed that all ih-
euhators are equipped with slides lo
lie opened or closed by the operation,
so that it will be seen that from
start until the finish it has to lie all
guess work on the part of the person who is attending to the machine
to, give the eggs the right amount nf
moislure and ventilation.
Permit me to say that there is not
one in a hundred who are absolutely
capable of taking upon themselves
this responsibility,
Wc all know that right conditions
will bring good results every time,
and it is tbis that has led mc to
study bow those conditions could be
brought about.
I know that the things essential to
good and successful incubatU a arc:
First—Pure air.
Second*—Heat.
Third—Moisture.
Fourth—The distributirn and control of them at all times during incubation In fact this is what has
led up, to tbe auiomaiie regulation,
and I reel that if we could get a regulator that would regulate moisture
and ventilation as well as beat then
we should really get right conditions
that would bring good results. This,
I have, successfully done by a New
Model regulator, it being automatic
First—It regulates the heat.
Second—H regulates lhe air or vc:i-
tilation.
Third—It regulates the moisture as
to the right amount of each, to bring
about a successful hatch.
They are very simple and easy to
manipulate after lieing once set, the
heat at 102 degrees, the moisture at
55 degrees and the right amount of
ventilation.
The regulator will al all limes attend to itself. There are two
dampers, one for the heal, tbe oth*r
lor the moisture and ventilation. It
has ,i triple effect, one damper has a
tripe on the burner shutting nIT t!te
bla/e if it is giving too much heat.
The blaze by this trip can be cut
down to candle power. This trip
will nol stick like the sloave trips
occasionally do when the wick gets
charred.
Tbis is a new invention that will
save at least half the oil, no heat
going to waste. Should the heat
by any moans ever get too high then
the second damper would immediatc-
ly turn on more ventilation and so
reduce the moisture. For example,
when the lieat drops hack to its place
moisture is immediately increased
and ventilation reduced, each damper
working harmoniously witb ihe oth-
cr. Thus it will be seen- that when
beat goes up moisture goes down or
vjen versa, when heat goes down
moisture goes up. High heat and
higll moist un- at tine same- time
Would parallzc every chick. Low heat
and low moisture will also do the
same and the only way to get a
good hatch of strong and healthy
chickens is to have the moisture,
heat nnd ventilation tn work in harmony w.th one another. These are
very vital points to be considered in
purchasing an incubator.
Tbe heating system in the Mcllridc has its own peculiar way, thc
heat from the tamp going up through
the center, the lamp being underneath and the direct heat from the
lamp being carried up through a l°og
flue to the top of the incubator,
where It enters a cast iron cross
tbat in connected to two arms
on around to tbe upright flue, where
the incubator and from thence to
the four corners where it continues
which take the heat to both sides of
it then escapes. Around the flue,
which is fourteen inches long, there
is a galvanized iron tank, of seven
and a half inch space, that holds
waler. The heat from the lamp
lieals tlte water in ihe tank from
which there mines a warm'vapor.
■lust around the tank arid due tbrw
is a metal jacket that lakes in
twelve Inches of pure fresh air up
along the lank and flue of lhe lamp.
This jacket reaches to within two
inches of lhe top. The jaet*te1 is
open at tbe top and Ids the moist
warm air into tin* egg chamber. 'The
air coming in contact with a'dla-
phagni which causes the soil alt i"
be diffused and evenly distributed,
nexl ti comes in contact with tbo
unlet pipes, wJHch causes il to descend, reaching the egg level q| a
tempctaluie    uf   109 degrees 0|        at
such other temperature as the operator maj arrange tor, This |nckel
alone rurnlslies 75 ppr cenl ui ihe
heat, which is ;i saving of oil Taking only about ono half the oil tbat
it takes lo inn a machine of the
same capacity of eggs hy other makers. Now we come In lhe cooling
jacket, which is around the heating
jacket. This cooling jacket keeps
theeggs from getting too hot in Ibe
center of the machine.
This completes one of the most
perfect automatic regulating ami
beating systems that has ever been
invented for an egg incubator.

GREAT FOREST FIRES
OF THE PAST
APPALLING    FIGURES OF THE
DESTRUCTION   WROUGHT BY
THE   FOREST'S GREATEST ENEMY.
The damage done to commercial
stands of timber in North America
is from $25,000,000 to $IO(i.min,(iOO
annually, according lo experts who
have made a study of the question.
From 188(1 to lhe present time, the
annual'loss is estimated to be $50,-
01)0,0(111. These figures do not include estimates of the losses sustained in the destruction of young
growth and litter, in which lies the
hope of future timber crops. Thc
burning of tbe forest litter has the
effect of making stream How irregular, eroding river hanks and destroying the fertility of land over which
useless earth is deposited hy swollen
rivers.
In some years, there are foresl
fires which assume the size of national disasters. Such was the
Peshtigo fire which swept over an
area ot 1,280,000 acres in Wisconsin
in 1871, uttering ruining the country
and bringing death to fifteen hundred
people. Other fires which stand out
■iTt the history of the past century as
examples of tlie ruining power of tbe
forest's great enemy arc:
Miramichi fire, Maine and New
Brunswick, 1825, 3,000,000 acres

questions of lire protection all ihe
year through, rather than iu the

is constantly Increasing and over

Ottawa, April 30.—Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, president of tbe Canadian Pacific railway, cables from
London: "Since my arrival in England, my attention has been drawn
to a recently published cable message to the effect that the company
contemplatid an expenditure of $a0,-
000,00(1 this year In Canada in laying double track, constructing branch
lines and putting a tunnel through
thc Rocky Mountains which will pin-
vide an alternative route with >
milch easier grade than now exists
and will enable the railway through
tbe tunnel to be worked by electricity if required. That report can
only refer to Western Canada, iotas a matter of fact, our contemplated expenditures over the whole system during the near future will be
more like $100,000,000, exclusive of
new rolling stock. This will not involve another appeal to the London
money market for fresh capital because all our financial arrangements
have been made a long way ahead."
BIN TO ICI
JAPS   KEEL    THAT    CALIFORNIA'S ATTITUDE   IS   SYM-
IIOLICAL   OF WORLDWIDE FEELING.
London, April 26.—Interest in the
development nf the question ol the
Japanese colony in California is very
considerable here. The Times, in an
editorial this morning says:
"Public, feeling in -Japan bos been
strongly aroused and it is clear from
Indignation meetings which have been
held that the Japanese believe ihe
dispute to be merely symbolic of the
Whole question of their future status
in thi1 world. Dispassionate observers can at least appreciate tin* feel-
itvs at work on both sides.
'"The action of the California legislature only represents one phase of
tbe rising alarm in the I'nited
States at the growth of large populations not akin in spirit and tradition to the original rounders of the
American nation. On a solid mass
of ten million negroes there has been
super-imposed a dense layer of back
ward peoples from southern aud
eastern Europe and tbe white races
in the western states have an additional dread of competition from
Asia hy folk who can under live ihe
white man.
"Japan, on the other band, though
cherishing no impossible dreams, is
gaining a foothold on the American
continent, and is keenly resentful of
implications of racial Inferiority, It
is the humiliation which wounds her
and tint proud and sensitive nation
which has newly won a place in tin*

Oltawa, Vpril 38.—A Judgment of
Immense Importance to Western Canada was given by the railway commission today lo the effect that th-
express rates in ibe west arc to I"*
cut twenty per cent, The new. rate
are tn come Into force on or before
Julj 15th of this year. The eastern
rales an* not touched for the pre-
seni, but Lhe board is satisfied tluit
the, west has been bearing more than
its fair share of thc express rates.
In 1»10 the laic Judge Mahcc made
a rc-arrangtment of. the express
rales bul there has been main complaints since and last autumn tin*
new commissioner undertook ,i tur-
th t inquiry into the question of
eastern and western rates. Tl* present decision is the result.    1
RATES ARE CXREASONABLE
"In itiy view." says the chairman
iu his decision, "the express, rates
charged by thc different companies m
the prairie provinces and in Hritish
Columbia arc unri asonable Reductions which have been 11 .. and
Ihey aro main' as shown bj tbe
companies' tariffs, aro i<\. ■•: m
which.but little afic'i th» mamtei
which the bulk of tbe tariff is moving, or are perhaps compensated **>
additions which have'been made \«
the rates, presumably in the levelHng
process, in establishing a mtleagi
basis of standard rates as provided
by the judgment. I am of the opinion that tie- approximate average reduction of twenty per ent should be
made by companies in thi* standard
maximum tariff (or traffic classified
as merchandise to apply only to tbe
prairie provinces and to British Co
lumbia."
AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
The decision also provides Cha
there is to.be a similar r.-duction i:
special rates. A particularly im
portant portion of the board's order
is the provision for the basis of the
standard maximum mileage tariffs.
Under the Mabee decision, the
ard maximum was placed at %5 pci
100,pounds for the prairie section,
and $0 for the mountain section.
This is reduced to $1 for the
praine and $*L75 for the mountain
sections.
Il is believed that tbe British Columbia reductions will fo- particular
ly valuable to the frufl industry ol
the coast province, as it will give
tbem far lower express rat's to the
prairies.
An interesting feature Is the rtate
ment that the inauguration of tbe
pan-el    post  in \fo- Dominion   would
considerably cut down tlw express
companies' business This reason is
given*, (ot not making a- greater decrease than 20 pet cent and for not
making ,UI\ changes ,1! all m tbe
eastern rates. The chairman, says
in this regard:
WHAT       EXPRESS     COMPANIES
SAY.
Taking up tbe companies separately;
the judgment finds thai the Canadian Express company, winch dues
most ol the express business in the
e,is:., stairs that 11 expenses pi on
m reasing, its continued financial
sin cess would Ih* (foutHful, The
board, however, thinks tts condition
;- Batisfnctoiv
Still, statistics    show  a falling off
in its profits from 13.1 to ti.09    per
cent in 1918, but  the board considers
this is due more lo increased expenses, including higltei salaries paid   to
its clerks, drivers, etc, greater cost
of material and   highct 1 enumeration
paid to the Grand Tiunk railway for
express privileges rathe, than to any
reduction in the rates made by      the
board.       Undoubtedly    a    reduction
.- made   through ,1 more generous
atioo and graduate scale,   in-
arrylng liability, specific reductions, and   the   extension of free
deUv( •-. and   collection limits,    but
such reductions in the board's opinion
are not.   sufficient to have been    appropriated by thc shipper.     On   account    of    the striking    reduction in
profits o!   the company shown, however,   tbe judgment states that    the
hr.a:d hesitates   to reduce rates    in
eastern Canada until it has had    an
opportunity to see the effect in business of the previous decreases.
THE WESTERN CONDITION'S.,
Conditions in Western Canada, are
very different. Thc Canadian Northern, which doe* most of th*? express
business there, made a profit of 24.7
per tent in 1312, and tht Dominion
Express company did we.l also. The
estimatrd cost of doing husiness in
the west is greater on account of the
density of traffic, hut these the board
considers to have been unduly emphasized, finding western rates unreasonable, and orders a reduction of
2<> per c.-nt in the stamlinjs maximum
for tariff classified as merchandise
for thp prairie provinces and British
Columbia. The present minimum
charge of 25 cents Is not interfered
with. The "graduate tables" already
Dxed by tbe board for express shipments are to lx- reduced according to
the general twenty per cent decrease.
fices and struggles have not yet achieved for her all the n > ■ ■■_:. ' ion
which she deems to be her due.
"It is precisely because such inflammatory susceptibilities are discernible in hojh quarters that We
hope President Wilson will succeed fn
his efforts to obtain either an abandonment or at .ui} rate. ;i modification of the threatened CoHfornian

GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE FOR
To Ibe Kditor Herald:
Dear Sir: I enclose a very Interesting lelU*r from Mr. IV. K. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, the
subject matter is of vast Importance
to many sections nt Hritish Columbia
vk-e* free of charge,, thereby making
funning.
The {government assistance in
stock raising and io dairymen's as
sootations and the demonstration
work is worthy of careful study. Tbe
authorities show their willingness tc
assist financially and to provide ad-
resources of the country and beeoni,:
it possible for men with brains, even
if short of capital, to develop ibe
resources of the country and become
independent or well to do with a
moderate expenditure of energy,
Farmers should show their appreciation by taking advantage of
the libera! terms offered by a paternal government, and if it proves
successful il will encourage the authorities to assist those who wish tu
engage in agricultural pursuits in
many other ways.
If a number of persons wish to organize a company under the conditions offered, I shall be glad to assist in flit* organization.
Yours truly,
A, R. Walts.
Department of Agriculture,
Victoria 2nd April, 1913.
A. K. Watts, Esq., Boundary Mining
and Exploration Co., Ltd.,
Wattaburg:
Dear Sir. In reply to the request
contained in your tetter of the 20th
ulto., that I give you information
regarding the conditio*^ imposed upon Agricultural Associations or cooperative companies wishing to engage in stock and dairying industries, and as to what this department is endeavoring to do to aid and
assist by legitimate means the industries referred to, 1 beg to submit
the following:
AGRICULTURAL   ASSOCIATIONS
ACT.
Part 2 of the ad deals with incorporation with share capital. Ily
this pari of the act, any twenly-live
or more persons who desire to associate themselves together tot o
number of purposes enumerated, may,
after conforming with certain regulations, become Incorporated. By nn
amendment passed by tbe recent session of the legislature, financial assistance may lie given to associations Incorporated under this part ol
the act, by means of a loan, repayable in twenty tears, and amounting
to 80 per cent ol the subscribed share
capital.
The lirst thing the provincial government has to consider, of course, is
the security that would be offered,
as they are custodians of the public
moneys, ami therefore any loan made
must 1m* fully safeguarded, The se
curtly which the government have, fo
the ground and buildings owned by
the association, ami tlie unsubscribed
amount of the share capital. No
loan, of course, would be grnntitl to
any association without the sane-
lion of the minister alter the fullest
investigation has been made as to
the prospects id success, t'nder this
part ot the act, the formation of cooperative creameries is sanctioned-
The success which attends properly
managed creameries is well'known.
In our province wc have several
which have caused a radical chain'"
for lhe better in the districts in
which they ar ilabllsliod. A better
quality of butter is made, ami Hi*
dairymen ate drawn together along
co-operative, lines in flic securing ol
supplies at wholesale rales, and the
marketing ot their produce ;is a
wjvole.
The greatest bar to progress
amongst the agricultural communities of tbe present day is lack of cooperative methods. Co-operation
amongst those who sell farmer's
produce must he mel by similar organization amongst ihe farmers
themselves. This is the keynote ol
success. The difficulties in lhe way,
and of course there are some, may tie
overcome by united action, by tin
sinking of local rivalries, and by
give and take amongst lhe fanners
themselves. If the principle that
the wisli of the majority must rule
is adopted, difficulties will hr
smoothed over. The solution of
this question must, however, emanate from tbe fanners themselves.
The government is ready, ami lias
shown ils willingness by tbis aCl In
support and hade up co-operative
principles along well thoUghl otil and
considered lines.
DEPARTMENT   ASSISTANCE   IN
STOCK  RAISINC1.
■\ plan has been lately outlined by
'he department, and is now being
eotried into effect, whereby Farmers'
Institutes which are incorporated under this act may secure through the
department! carefully selected purebred sires of tho different dairy
breeds, at cost price, and under easy
terms of n*-payment. The circulars
which I am attaching herewith uill
give you full Information as to lhe
lines on which we propose to carry
out this work.
STOCK   BREEDERS AND DAIRYMEN'S ASSOCIATIONS.
These two associations nre accomplishing very good work In aiding
ami developing lhe dairy industry,
one of the chief advantages of being
a member of either of these associations is that provided you import or
buy in the province any ■ pure . red
stock, the member will secure a re
hate of half the transportation
charges. This in Itself is of material assistance, to all slock raisers.
There are many other ways in which
members benefit. Dairy farm competitions are held by the association,
and prizes awarded. Slock Judging
contests are held in connection with
our fall fairs, and prizes awarded for
these contests, meetings are held a'
different limes, and lectures and demonstrations given by capable      e\
ports,
DEMONSTRATION WORK.
The department has lately undertaken, and is now carrying out demonstration work in tbe growing of
fodder and soilimg crops. These de
monstratlon plots are worked hy the
owner of the laud under direction
from the department. The owner of
the plot gets certain concessions at
the start, such as the preparing of
tbe ground, supplying of seeds, fertilizers, etc., and also gets tin* benefit of the expert advice of the offi
cials of the department in con/ducting
his work. lie is expected to furnish full reports to the department,
and tn have his place available for
any demonstrations or meetings
which WC may wish to hold thereon.
We expect hy. Ibis work to show how
by intensive methods of farming and
growing of fodder and soiling crops,
Ibe farmer can increase the number
of cows kept on lhe same mirage,
atud also conserve and Increase the
fertility of bis soil. On tin- island
of Jersey, two cows arc kepi per
acre bv theso methods. British Columbia has     ns favorable a climale,
virgin soils, which should be therefore more fertile. Why cannot our
dairymen accomplish similar results?
COW TESTING WORK.
Hy an arrangement lately effected
wilh ibe federal government, the
provincial department id agriculture
now undertakes cow-testing work.
Cow-testing associations are being
formed in districts where there is
SUlIicIcnl interest taken, and enough
cows kept. The department supplies expert men to do the testing
work, and we hope that by this
means wo may show dairymen the
Importance of keeping an authentic
record of performance of their cows,
and thus be able to eliminate the
boarder from their herds. It costs
jusl the same lo keep a cow tbat
gives one hundred pounds of butter
as one which gives throa hundred
pounds. We cannot get rid of the
one that is giving the small amount
of milk unless we adopt these met'ii-
ods t,, enable us to tell exactly what
each cow is producing.
In conclusion, I would say that
dairying in ibis province is destined
lo become one of the most important
ami best paying phrases of farming.
Our conditions are jusl right for successful dairying, and the department
is endeavoring to foster and encourage this industry by all legitimate
means.
I enclose for your informal ion copy
of the Agricultural Associations Act,
IOU, and amendments thereto, ami a
careful perusal of this act will, 1
think, put you in full possession ol
ibe information which you wanf--
Yours very truly,
(Signed) Wm. v.. Scott,
Deputy Minister.

INVERMERE
Invermere, B. I'., April 28.—Extensive work for this part as a district and for this plaee as a business
center is fast focusing oa here. The
latest developments have been the
action of tho directors of the Windermere District Hospital association
in accepting, after discussion, a set
of draft plans for their proposed new
building and giving instructions t,,
the building committee to go ahead
ami get oui working plans with the
view of letting the contract f"i Hie
hospital at as early a date, as possible Thc'design id the institution
as depicted on tin* plans show it to
he (d bungalow   pattern in   its    ap-
poaranoo and to be nf tl K" ;Jiape
in ils floor plan. The estimated
cost for tin. initial work is about six
thousand dollars. A portion of this
money has already lx*en received and
lies to tho credit of the building
fund account, while a greut deal
mure has been definitely promised
and only uwaitw the definite an
nouneeinent of the building committee
before it will be paid in The site
on which the building is to he placed
is one iu Invermere Heights, adjoining this townslte, and commanding a
Sweep of excellent scenery, from one
view point the convalescing patients
will be able to look out on lo the
expansive fields of the Dominion
government's experimental farm.
The season's work on tlu* Dominion
government experimental (arm, to
which undertaking a passing refer
•encc has bent made above, is being
proceeded with. Mr. fi. K. Parham.
of tlhoj f)kanaga-n district, has heen
here for some time in Ihe capacity ol
superintendent and under his skilled
hand the work is being pushed along.
What may be truly said to be the
most far reaching and lasting of this
work, which is the planting of young
fruit trees, is 'being well demonstrated hy the transplanting of one
thousand seedlings of various kinds.
Last year was the first time in
Which any work had been done upon
thc new farm which up In that date
had been covered by the virgin parklike forest of this part. During the
winter of PM1-1912 the trees were
cleared off and tbe stumps rooted up.
In the early spring the ground was
fenced and then later ploughed and
planted to potatoes and to oats.
This year some of lhe permanent
work is to In* done in the planting
way and the regulation house for the
superintendent and the accommodation for the foreman is being gone
on with. The contract for the superintendent's house was let last fall
and it is understood that work " will
be vigorously pushed with the arrival
of materials by some of the early
boats.
Navigation on the Columbia river
is about   to open. It  is expiated
that the first boat from the north
Country should reach here hy the
beginning of next week, bringing
down some of the huge quantities of
general merchandise which have been
aecumulating at the station awaiting
the opening of the season. It Is figured that even with increased river
transportation facilities, that owing
to tlte wonderful development which
is taking place in ihis district- that
ihe river craft will have more Irpight
in the early part of the season than
they can conveniently handle
Messrs. Hums and Jordan, the eon-
tractors, for the "missing link" of
the Kootenay Central branch of the
Canadian Pacific railway are early
endeavoring to forestall the possibility of their work being in any way
delayed hy such a happening by undertaking to build two boats for
their own use. These, together
with h»ui freight barges, arc now
under construction in their new established shipyards at Spillintachene.
Tho work is being carried on for
them under lhe direction of Captain
Francis 1'. Armstrong, thc veteran
river navigator of this part. It is
anticipated that as soon as the first
section of tbe Kootenay Central railway on its wayfrom thc north can
convcj* height to Spillimaehene that
their supplies will bt taken down to
tli.it place. From there it is likely
they will he shipped per their own
steamers to Ibis place. Owing t-o the
fact tluit bete are combined for the
first time iu this dictrict the rare
advantage of the railway and tne
water navigation being contiguous
and olose in to a settlement " here
will be established the local headquarters for all the railway construction.
In the line of navigation it might
be well to mention that tlw government dredge under the,direction of
Mr. ftcorgc Rury will shortly.be at
work in this part busily engaged on
the new wharf which the Dominion
government are about to build herc
and also engaged in removing some
of the smnll obstructions which for a
number of years past have been allowed to gather in the upper reaches
of the Columbia river as it winds
its beautiful but tortuous way between Windermere lake and its twin,
the CoV'imbia lake. With.the view
of perfecting lhe details, Chief flov-
ernment Engineer Forde, made
official visit here this week and
looked over thc ground. He made
tho return journey from here to the
north country by gasoline Inunch
down the Columbia river. In company with Mr. Forde while' hwre wee

EDITORIAL NOTES
liAti  lil l,K NOW.
Willi the passing of the closure resolutions mi Uu* evening ol April 33,
•lias opened n new era of parliamentary life in t'uiiail,*,; an era tbe result of which upon thc imtiotVs history can only bo judged by the
course ol events. Closure was carried by a solid government voto—as
would in* the case In every proposition fathored by .Mr. Borden and Mr,
Rogers, bul Its full meaning Is impossible to determine so Involved Is
ils phraseology, This wns shown by
the many differences of opinion during ihe debate, and the fact Hut the
premier waa willing to put in an
amendment bcroro, tin* schomo he and
his followers had arranged made it
Impossible. Further, Mr., Horden
in .his anxiety to get this unpleasant
gag business over, offered lo call an
extra session, of parliament in    September when the new rules eoiild    be
considered In a    constltutionnl manner, by committees presided our  by
the Bpeakcr.      The obvious Inference
was final tho new rules had boon hastily put together In enable the   gov-
orumonti   to    dragoon parliament on
tho naval bill and nny other measure
upon which they desired to stifle opposition,    and also loi acquire, power
by which they could drive the estimates through parliament iu bulk  and
prevent the airing of scandals.      So
fur us   rulcsi    can   accomplish   lAita,
tbey have succeeded; bul no rules can
bo devised capable of preventing    an
active   and   able    opposition    from
bringing   to lhe notice of parliament
aud tlie people those matters    which
demand such publicity.     The manner
in which lhe  Liberal  leaders       have
succeeded in loosening thojgng during
the past week gives reason to    hope
that   they     will he able   lo prevent
that stringent closure which is evidently designed by the ministers  who
are leading the prime minister.

Deliberate attempts have lieen made
by Conservative; members ol parliament ami the Conservative press
throughout' Canada to make it appear that rule 17, under which lhe
government .so insultingly deprived

opportunity to speak or move an

records show thai rule 17 was adopted when the original rules of the
bouse were formulated after Confed
oration', and that jt has continued ii
existence since then Hut during
forty-six years neither Liberals nor
Conservatives have availed themselves of it. Ii remained for Mr, Borden under lhe Influence of Hon. Mr.
Rogers to discover nnd,enforce this
rule in a manner never intended, by
its framers, That the rule was enforced in an improper manner by
shutting off Sir Wilfrid Laurier after
he had been "rcCognifced" by the

standard authority of parliamentary]
practice, who says on this very
point: "It. is irregular to interfere
with the speaker's call in favor of
any other member."
The only "peril" either Britain or
Canada need ever fear from Germany
is not either the Kaiser's army or
his navy, but rather the rapid
strides Germany has made in applying the facts and laws of science 1
the creation ol wealth, tbo BUpcrlot
ity of Germany's industrial and
' technical BChools, and the organlza-i
tion of the Gorman people, for the
production ol goods which will win in
tho competitive- markets of tho
world, it Is not Germany's battleships we need to fear, hut her
schools nnd universities, the thrift
ol her people, and the betterment of
her social conditions which saves her
workers from ruimms waste.    And it
the German war-scare is provedlo be
"bogus" no time need be spent in
conjuring up a new enemy either tn
Europe or In Asia. If tho parliament of Canada would turn away
from the outgrown distempers of the
disordered European mind, and strike
strongly lor au international neighborhood and not for an international
jungle, this new nation might do
something worth, while iu laying
forever these "bogus" scares and
bogey "enemies'' that disturb tho
world's peace. Surely thai is tlu
only worthy permanent Cauadlat

one has yet been able to tell exactly
where the missing money is.
II money were scarce in Canada
and plentiful in the United Stales,
we might assume that the citizens of
that country had got ours away
from us; or, if money were scarce in
America and plentiful in Europe, Ll
would be rtasoiiable to suppose that
a great deal of it had crossed the
Atlantic. But money is "light" iu
all the civilized countries of the
world.
Where is it'.' Currency is represented by coins and notes. We have not
heard of coins being molted or notes
destroyed, aud yet large o,mnitities
of coins and notes have disappeared
from circulation.
Somebody must Ik* biding it. Are
the frugal poor of the civilized world
putting it away in stockings, or
burying it in their back yards'.' Or,
are the great financial interests with
drawing it from circulation and secreting it in their vaults'
This brings us to the unsolved
problem—whether financial si rlnym-
cies arc natural phenomena or the results of deliberate manipulation.
Does a wave of terror sweep ovet the
world at intervals, telling him that
he is growing poor, und tluit he
must 'hide what he lias left? Or, dc
the great financiers deliberately
make money "tight" in order lo depress values so that they may gel
bargains?
One thing only, apparently, we are

COLONY WILL VISIT PRINCIPAL
CITIES OF CANADA  IN
JUNE, .H'LV  AND
AUGUST.
The visit of Court Councillor llorst
Weber, of the "llliislrirle, Zeitung,"
of Leipslc, here iu Canada is still
fresh in Uio memory of our people.
Everywhere, ho came to, the court
councillor was most pleasantly and
deeply Impressed with the country
ami everything thai be saw. Upon his
return to Germany in December, he
reported upon .ill that he had seen
and experienced. The results of this
three months' stay are, lirstly, a
special edition of his famous journal
devoted to Canada, and secondly, the
arrangement of a business men's trip
to Canada of leading German personages of every held of activity.
Some time ago we mentioned ihis
spicial issue of the "llliislrirle /.ei-
lung," nnd in a short time wo shall
no doubt see it iu ils finished form.
The special editions got out by the
"iiiustrirte /.eitung" are admirable
pieces of work and seem to have 01' t
with instant approval in all parts of
the continent.
The business men's trip is a unlnNQ
enterprise, for it is thc lirst time
that such a party of representative
Germans wilt visit this country nnd
be oUlclally received by the governments of the provinces and municipal
administrations. And it certainly
speaks for the "Iiiustrirte /.eitung"
that Immediately upon thc suggestion
nf the trip, an honorary committee
was formed in Germany to promote
the idea. From the list of personages
and associations that are giving
their support lo it, we must conclude that the a flair will be of high
International importance.
A very Interesting programme    h,,s
ones but   the   grown tips  been worked   out lor tbe trip, which
I is to last, seven weeks in Canada.
As Hid 21th of May is drawing
near, it is interesting to note what
real meaning "Empire Day" should
have for lhe citizens of thc greatest
empire, upon which 'the sun never
sets.'
Wti must go,bach some five years,
when the Karl of Meath brought forward his great empire movement and
selected the birthday of Victoria the
flood, a day when all thoughts
should be directed to true and loyal
citizenship.
Motto:
One King, one   Flag, one Fleet, one
Empire.
Watchwords:
Responsibility,    Duty,      Sympathy
S elf-Sacrifice.
Object:
"It    is an effort to awaken     tbe
"peoples   who constitute the British
"Empire'to the serious duties whieh
"lie at their door, and to raise up a
"generation    which  will   pay   more
"heed than the present to thc      responsibilities   entailed by  partner-
'ship in such a mighty confederation
"of nations as that over which     the
"King reigns,"
"It endeavors to broaden thc incus
"aud sympathies of the subjects of
"thc King-Emperor, whatever may
"boi their color, nationality, creed or
"class. It recognizes that knowledge and patriotism, as well as
"charity, should begin at home, hut
"that, like charity, they should not
"end there.
" 'The Empire. Movement' calls
"upon all British subjects to love
"and fear Clod, honor the King, to
"obey the laws, 10 prepare then-
"selves lo advance thc highest inlcr-
"ests of the empire In pence and
"war; to cherish patriotism, to re-
"gard the lights of other nations, to
"learn citizenship, to follow duty, t<
"consider duties before rights, t*
"noqltiro knowledge, to think broad;
"ly, to practice discipline, to subdue
"self, to work for others to COhsid'
"er the poor and inhering. '
Rally! l(r rry:
For Clod! For Duty! For Empire I
Wilh this great object before, them
a special joint committee of the Ova
Seas club and Veteran*,' Brigade are
working, and, as it should be, centering all their endeavors upon the
children of the eity.
Tbey are arranging a demonstration
of tlie children, when(the flag will he
broken and hoisted. This to be followed with patriotic songs, tor which
event the. princlpul of thc school is
very kindly training the children.
This will be followed hy a speech
suitable to thc occasion. The committee aro hoping to secure. thc
services of the Hon. W. It. Ross for
this part of the programme. At the
conclusion the children will march to
the Auditorium, where a special
matinee will be held. Mr. BaWwin

CROWS NKST   PASS COAL COMPANY   REPORT   1913   SUCCESSFUL   YEAR AT
ANNIAL   MEETING.
Toronto, April 28.—After a series
of unsuccessful years, shareholders of
the Crows Nest Pass Coal company
were pleased to have reported to
them at the annual meeting that
the year 1912 was decidedly profitable, the annual statement showing
net profits of $171,154, which, after
deducting the debit balance brought
forward from IOU, leaves a credit
balance of $110,423. Net profits were
at the rate of 7.58 per cent on the
paid-up capital stock.
Nevertheless, there was some spirited criticism ot thc management at
the meeting by some of the minority
share-holders, which President Eflias
Rogers showed an evident desire to
quench.
According to thc d!rcctors' report
coal mined] during the year was !,■
0lil,791 tons, compared with 359,456
tons in 1011; while coke produced in
1912 was 215,229 tons against (10,-
659 tons in 1911. During 1911 the
mines were closed down for eight
months on account of the strike of
miners.
Profits for thc year of the Crows
Nest Pass Electric Light and Power
company wore $5,863, with a total
balance of that company of $6,998.
The Morrissey, Vernie and Michel
railway has a credit balance of $25,-
078, malting a total profit of all companies for 1912 of $509,398.
Mr. Rogers pointed out that during
the year the indebtedness to the
banks have been reduced by $568,099.
At thc end of the year it stood at
$795,000, and since thc end of the
year tho company has paid $70,000
moro to the First National hank.
leaving the, indebtedness now standing at $725,000.
OF
TOPSY-TUHVEY
The world at largo knows In Mexico an unhappy nation whose struggles it has watched through a curtain
of blood the last two years. Only
those who have actually seen her can
realize the charm of that enchanted
land, still so fast asleep In thc shallow of Crotez, and Montezuma that
presidents and constitutions seem at
best a mere ridiculous anachronism,
writes Julia Wood, in thc Kansas
City Star.
It is a country of such tremendous
superlatives that thc ordinary adjective shrinks back appalled from any
attempt ot description. A land
where a moon tlie size of a washtub
turns night into a silver day; where
strawberries are crimson plums;
(lowers grow by the acre, trees are
hoary with a thousand yenis; where
men are so fabulously rich that individuals could pay the national
debt wilh ease, and a day's Journey
on the train can be made over one
single state; so pitifully poor that
death by starvation is an everyday
occurrence too trivial for remark!
A! land of upside downs, where
doorknobs and vehicles turn to the
left, where the police force is made
up of ex-bandits, where love is sung
instead of spoken, where the populace sleeps in the afternoon and
amuses itself all night.
A land of (Unbelievable contracts,
from Vera Cruz roasting on its red-
hot gulf to the Alpine snows and
Swiss chalets of Popocatepetl; trom
an Indian hamlet of four cenuuries
ago to one of. the most brilliant and
cosmopolitan capitals of the world.
But, after all, It Is not scenery,
size or superlatives which constitute
the charm nf Mexico. It Is the life
of thc-people. Where. Aztec and
Spaniard have blended to form tho
most fascinating of composites. In a
land where the street   Is a perpetual

theatre of emotions and where tin
heart is not content to remain even
pinned upon the sleeve, but is flaunted in the face of tbe passer-by, mom
tony is not to be expected. The lack
of self-consciousness, the naive abandon of expression with which the
popnlacn at large weeps, laughs,
quarrels and makes love, asloiinds
and entrances the stolid Anglo-Sax
on.
The Mexican four hundred are    ne
cessarily moro   contained, hut, then
they are not truly Mexican, hut Par
isian, in  education, dress, manners-
and    morals—as   for   the "gentle,'
however!     If it is sad, it bursts intt
disconcerting torrents   of tears; it it
is angry, it   flashes still more    d
concerting   stilettos in a slorm      of
gesticulation and abuse; if it is      in
love, it sighs and ogles and heats it
breast before the   curious ga/e      of
passing hundreds with a bland disregard   of appearances that the Sphinx
might envy.
The Paseo, the bullfight and tin
Alameda are the. scenes for the
greatest emotional actively. The first
has taken place each day for centuries from 5 to 7 in the afternoon. Us
route has varied with the growth of
the city, hut its programme is as the
laws of the Mcdes and Parisians
Not to be represented in that long
line of horses and motor cars which
prance and chug-chug along the Pasco
de la Reformat and beneath the
stately cypresses or Chapul tepee
means a social oblivion which the
true Mexican would willingly—and
sometimes does—starve to avoid.
There is no more beautiful driveway
in Europe than that along which the
pageant winds nor any castle more
kingly than Chapultcprc, towering on
high in a wilderness of roses and
wealth of gory memories.
Here the tragic shades of the Mon-
tczuma-s have watched the building
of a palace for their conquerors on
tho ruins of their own halls; murdered viceroys have lamented the death
of Spanish power; Maximillian and
mad Carlotta have wept an empire's
loss; and a long line of married rut
ers have breathed shadowy warnings
to that last victim who so short
time ago was dispensing the kindliest
of hospitality within those beautiful,
ill-starred walls.
The Paris-gowned, dazzlingly-jewel
ed procession below can waste nc
time, however, on natural beauty or
poetic tradition. The great object
of the tour is to exhibit to the rolling throng gowns, jewels, equipages,
and, in tlie case of thc young girl,
thoso charms which may, in that
land of volcanic love, win her a husband in one momentous drive.
There are villages in Mexico wliere
the footsteps of Cortez still echo, so
wholly do they belong to the past.
But in tho City ot Mexico the Twentieth Century has taken possession
and has elbowed through it a triumphant and dazzling path. It has
not been able, however, tq dominate
completely thc old Mexico, and it is
tho joint ownership of the two that
has made the great city one of the
most picturesque and magnificent
capitals of the world. Side by side
tbey stand, the old and the now; the
narrow, crooked streets, redolent
with garlic and "pulque," streets,
whose faded pink and blue houses almost! rub balconies, and boulevards
where eight carriages can easily pass
abreast; IVlota and the bullfight vying with moving picture shows and
golf, the old Inquisition building and
a garage facing one another; here
"zarafes" and sombreros, there thc
latest Paris fashions; one minute tin
tinkling of guitars, thc next the
clanging of electric bells; one-half t In-
city wrapped in its noon siesta, lhe
other caught in thc fevered Amcrcau
rush; and not only thc city, but the
nation! Tbe old Mexico, with its
lawless, undisciplined past, tho new
Mexico, awake to its tremendous possibilities, quivering to fulfill them,
struggling along as best it may lo
keep up with tlu* mighty onward
movement of the world.
