(Special to the Herald).
Ottawa, Feb. 3—There has been a
strou» disposition during tbe past
lew ttuyN to lis** Britiwh newspapers,
und especially the London Times in
defence ol the Borden naval eoutri-
tIon. Some of these quotations have

Times in deailng with the Canadian
proposals 1ms not always steered a
direct course, and ol anirse Mr.
Borden's supporters have selected dt-
atUuiH which suit their views.
(hi November 2», a week before Mr.
Iturileii made his auiiounceiiicnt, the
Times iu un editorial stated that tin*.
Sovea years later in 1908 .Sir Wilfrid considered that circumstances
bad so developed and tin; Dominion
so advanced, that the time was ripe
for tho foundation ot u Canadian
navy to act in eo-operntlou with the
Imperial navy and to such extent reduce the imperial naval burden, just
us tlie Canadian militia bus reduced
tbe Hritish army burden. The resolution—with Mr. Horden's "speedy"
insertion wns unanimously adopted,
and in 1810 the Naval Service Act
was introduced and, 'utter vigorous
opposition from Mr. Harden and    his)
Hritish licet had never been in such a j followers, passed on May 4th.
state of elliciency, and that the nation was ready to face any emergency which could reasonably be Imagined while "Every great dominion
has undertaken, or is now to undertake, the creation of a fresh center of
naval power. Their growing
strength is our strength, as ours has
always been theirs. . . It is not
good strategy to urge that, a North
Sea standard should be used as our
universal criterion of naval power.
Let us fix a European standard according to our European needs, which)
this country alone is ready and able
to meet; and let us then In consultation with the Dominion gov*
ehnments decide the needs of security
elsewhere. The Dominions will require our help even then; but let us
keep the two spheres distinct, and
reckon on Dominion ships only in
the wider extra-European spheres
Bach of these systems will make foi'
the highest possible efficiency in the
conditions of each sphere; but they
will not easily amalgamate. The
contributed ships must be laid down
t«), but must be earmarked tor service elsewhere."
These were the views of the Times
before Mr. Horden announced his
$35,000,000 donation. On December
14, it discusses this, and says: "The
Canadian people are now determined
to take their place in the forefront of
Imperial defence. As to the method, it is of course for Canadians to
choose. Mr. Horden kft the que*
tion open. Sir Wilfrid answers It
at once by declaring for a separate
Canadian fleet. It is not for us to
weigh these two divergent views, nor
is the subject an urgent one. . . .
it is of real moment that the capacity for naval construction should be
distributed in many Hritish centres
rather than concentrated here (England); but no Dominion can construct Dreadnoughts in a day. The
natural course is to begin, ns Mr.
Horden has suggested, with smaller
craft and to work gradually up tlie
This "natural course" was by no
means Mr. Horden's sugfjestion, as
intimated by tlie Times. It was
first outlined h\ Sir Wilfrid Laurier
In 1908, when he foreshadowed local
fleets (or Canada ami refused a Contribution. It was again pursued by
Sir Wilfrid in 1!»10, when he prepared,
his naval construction programme,
with the provision that the lesser
ships of the fleet unit must he built
in Canada.
Then tlK* Times says Mr. Horden
left the question open. He had to;
if he had ventured to close it be
would have upset his Nationalist alliance. Sir Wilfrid, unfettered, had
no hesitation in declaring for a Cana-,
dinn navy, us he had done before on
advice of the Imperial authorities.
The great Imperialist organ says: "It
is o( real moment that the capacity
for naval construction should be distribute in many Hritish centres
rather than concentrated here." , No
clearer condemnation of the cheque
habit nor fuller vindication of the
Laurier policy could be asked.
How dn the policies ol the two
leaders compare from this Hritish
standpoint? In IW2*—botore Mr. Horden Invented his emergency—Sir Wilfrid and his colleagues at the imperial conference set forth in on official
memorandum "They fully appreciate
the duty of the Dominion as It advances in population and wealth to
make a more liberal outlay for those
necessary preparations of self-defence
which every country has to assume
and bear."
The official minutes of the conference set forth that Sir Wilfrid
then had stated that the Canadian
government was contemplating the
establishment of a local naval force,
hut that they were not ahle to make
any direct contribution as had been
done by other colonies.   .
Over ten years ago .Sir Wilfrid had
laid firm the-foundations of a statesmanlike policy which with the
growth of population and wealth of
the Dominion has also grown until it
Is now before the people in • his
amendment to Mr. Borden's naval
No time was then lost hy thc
Laurier government. The Times in
December, 1912, says, "It is of real \
moment that the capacity for naval
construction should be distributed in
many Drltish centres rather than
concentrated here (England); but no
Dominion can begin to build Dreadnoughts in a day." That IS exactly
what Sir Wilfrid Laurier had already
said in 1910. His government prepared a programme which comprised
four cruisers of the Improved Bristol
class and six destroyers of the Improved River class—thc types advised/
by the British admiralty. ' And on
July 8th, 1910, the government advertised in the leading Canadian
newspapers as follows:
The vessels will be built according
to the plans and specifications of the
British admiralty, which, being of a
confidential nature, will only be exhibited to approved firms. The dc- ■
partment of naval service will, therefore, be glad to hear from any Canadian or British firm who would wish
to tender for building in Canada alt
these warships.
"It would bo necessary for such
firms to show that they have or
propose to put in a ship-building
plant that would he considered sufficient for the building ol cruisers of
the Bristol class and that they have
had such experience as will enable
them to guarantee the building of
such ships according to the admiralty specifications."
Every line of this proposition is in
exact accord with the views of the
Times--and the utterances of British
ministers—in the past few months.
He proposed to build shifts to guard
and patrol Canadian waters, thus relieving vessels of the imperial fleet;
he proposed to establish shipyards
and docks in Canada so that "The
capacity for nnv.il construction
should be distributed in many British
centres; he proposed to start with
smaller war vessels and work up.
He did not propose to start with n
dole of petty contracts for building
tank vessels and such auxiliary craft
handed out from England.
Even the British papers in their
efforts to praise Mr. Borden proved
the greater wisdom of the Laurier
Premier Borden has now to face
another schism in his ranks, and
this time from a totally unexpected
quarter. When Hon. W. T. White
introduced his Bank Act it looked
like an innocent piece of legislation
which would be treated in calm financial terms by both sides ol the
house. The Liberal members showed their nnxiety to work with thc
minister of finance so as to Improve
the Hank Act as far as possible.
Then in stalked the spectre of the
Farmers' Hank which has so haunted j
many followers of Premier BordeT)
slnct* September, 1911, and trouble
came with it. During the campaign
of 1911 a do7.cn or more Ontario
Tory candidates, headed by Hon. T.
W. Crothers—now minister of labor-
declared that If they were elected
and the Tories returned to power the
new government should reimburse
those unfortunates who had lost their
money in the Farmers' Bank smash.
This won elections for most of
them. But when parliament met
they could not deliver tlie goods.
Mr. Borden could swallow a good
deal, but he did not dare swallow
such a dose as was proposed. After
much patient pursuit he formally repudiated his colleague, Hon. Mr.
Crothers, and said that the minister
had only spoken for himself.
Naturally this was cold cheer for
the group of generous promisers who
found that they had won their seats
by false pretences. They had promised reimbursement, and their electors demanded It, with threats that
if they broke their promises
path would not be easy when
wanted votes again.

Raymond Poincare, Recently Premier of France —
Statesman who has Earned a Great Standing
in the Field of Diplomacy
Raymond Poincare stand* out as
the foremost man in France today.
Until last summer he was not widely
known beyond the frontier of France,
ui Known only as ono among many
brilliant parliamentarians, Then came
his journey to Russia, with vital Con-
fcronces between tho Tsar und his
ministers and the prime minister    of
Strusburg, a cousin, uf the future
statesman, Henri Poincare, the
world-famous mathematician, who
died last year The feneration of
Frenchmen to which tbey belonged
is marked by u certain severity, "The
breath ot the lost provinces" boa
filled their hearts. As M. Raymond
Poincare himself    has said, the pat-

Loudon, Jan. .31.—"The foremost
task of Liberalism in tbe near future
is thc regeneration of rural life—tbe
emancipation of the land of this
country from the paralyzing grip of
rusty, effete and unprofitable system."
Rt. Hon. David Lloyd George,
chancellor of the exchequer, made
this momentous declaration tonight
at tht; annual meeting of the National Liberal club. The land question
has been one of Mr. Lloyd tlcorge's
bobbies, aad the Conservatives have
accused him ot being ambitious to introduce the Henry George system of
taxation in Great Britain. Recently they have been asserting that the
cabinet had sidetracked his scheme/
but tonight's speech by the chancellor
indicates that the government soon
will grapple with perhaps the greatest problem in its extensive programme of social reforms.
Tbe unofficial commission Mr.
Lloyd George selected to investigate,
thc relations between landlords and
tenants has been attacked bitterly by
the Conservative party, which is the
party of the country squires, because
its probings were in secret. ,Mr.
Lloyd George said in his speech tonight that the results achieved by
the commission had been startling.

about   a general good   understanding
among all tin* erer.t     Kuropean powers.    We held that we owed it to our

our   effective    and    active   fidelity.
Honor and     interest equally      commanded   this course.      And our task
was made    easy by thc clairvoyance
and   surety of    judgment    which M.
W. H. McFarlane and S. Macdonald
returned the beginning of the week
from Victoria, where as delegates,

the chancellor said:
"When these reports are published
tbey will prove conclusively that
there are hundreds of thousands, if
not millions, of men, women and
children living under conditions with

rest of labor conditions, which ought
to make this great empire hang its

by unchallengeable facts that thisi

to be imprisoned for thirty days.
Brown refused to give amy, account of

drink and was, at once, sent to tb.*

This man lost both his arms in a
railway accident some years ago and
as a consequence whoever gives him

It is said tbat he stated that the interdict bad been removed and on this
plea succeeded in getting the whiskey. This in no way relieves the
party who gave him the drink from

publicly stated that the first party

to interdicted persons will have goo|
reason to remember his offence

Raymond Poincare passed his sob sol
days at Nancy, and  he has given    a
i delightful and humorous account     of
bis   trepidation before the examiner,
j F.mile Gcbhart,   to whose chair      In
, the   French   academy    he succeeded,
| and a eulogy on whom, according  to
I tbe graceful   custom of that body, he
was called on to pronounce. Soon af-
er    lie gained  his bachelor's degree,
Paris began     to exercise her fascination on    him.       There he completed
his studies, took his doctor's degree,
and was called to tbe bar.    At twenty-,hree he was first secretary Of the
conference    of    lawyers, and in that
capacity pronounced a eulogy on Du-
laure which   won admiration.     From
1883    to 1886 he   wrote for the Voltaire, when his fellow-Ixrrainer, De-
velle, then    minister. o( agriculture,
made hint   chief    of his department.
Raymond Poincare. who was      then
twenty-six,   had already made      his
mark as a lawyer and a writer.       A
seat ia  tbe popular house, that    for
Commercy, a  tew miles from Bar-le-
Duc, his home,    falling vacant      in
July, 1887,   Raymond Poincare    became a   candidate as a "Liberal Re-
ublican"   and   was    elected   by an
enormous majority.     He represented
this electoral district uninterruptedly
until 1903. when he was elected sena-,
tor for the department of the Meuse,
which includes both his birthplace and
his old parliamentary constituency.
From his first day in the popular
chamber Raymond Poincare .showed
the wonderful union of force with
tact which marks afl be does. Con-
ficious of bis own force, he set hinv
B?lf quietly to work, making himself
fleet ive rather than conspicuous,
thus winning friends without arousing enemies. "He aroused no enthusiasm and was not anxious to
create any. This was his first power. Then be called forth no envious
hatred. This was Iris second power.
And little by little Poincare revealed
himseif. He spent no hour profit-
essly; every word, every gesture
Dade for the realization of the plans
which he thenceforward held, plans
or the gradual growth of his personal force. Never to scatter his
forces, this was his first principle;
he always sought to bring them to a
ecus. And bis second principle was
always to be engaged in effective
work, devoting his fresh energies to
practical aims." There is a certain resemblance here to Gladstone's
early parliamentary life. Both were
men of imagination, born orators,
writers, yet both first made a mark
in tbe field which srnns least favor-
ble to eiocfpence, tbe department' of
finance. Gladstone became tbe author of budgets. Poincare became
tlie critic of finance ministers. "His
eloquence was as limpid as his subject was obscure."
In I8M, when Raymond Poincare
was thirty-three, M. Ihipuy formed!
his first cabinet. Poincare seemed
indicated as his minister of finance.
But Dupuy offered him instead the
portfolio of public instruction Here
was an opportunity for the development ot a second side of his character The practical lawver had had
his opportunity. It WAS now the
turn of the cultivated scholar.
After eight months, Dupuy's cabinet fell. The second Dupuy ministry
was soon organised, and this time
Raymond Poincare became minister
of France. On the fall of Dupuy,
Ribot formed a cabinet in which Raymond Poincare for the second time
held the portfolio ol public Instruction and undertook a thorough reorganization of the provincial universities, infusing into them new energy
and enthusiasm. This was in 1895.

the following ■ January, Hon. Mr.
Crothers practically refused a board,
and the matter drifted until June
when a second application, exactly
according to the terms of the act,
was made. Hon. Mr. Crothers suggested a deputation to the C.P.R.
headquarters at Montreal, promising
protection to the two men. Nothing
resulted save that ere long the two
delegates were out ot a job.
Thru early last October, a third
application was made to Hon. Mr.
Crothers, and nol granted, although
Ihe net specified that on such an application being property made a
board should he granted within 15
days, with further provision that after application if the men struck before the appointment or the board
they were liable to criminal proccri-
thal "re—so that for a whole year Mr.
Bank , Crothers had delayed, refusing the
hoard and at the .same time preventing the men from striking to enforce their demands,
finally thc men became exasperated and went out on strike, and just
before parliament met the minister of
labor fearing the criticisms of the
and knowing that the
whole country was indignant at his
course, granted a partial hoard, covering the Ottawa division. This reported in December, practically finding in favor of the men's demands on
every count. Hut Mr. Carvell
pointed out that notwithstanding
this the men were still out and apparently Mr. Crothers bad made no
effort to induce the company to reinstate them, in strong contrast to
ihe manner in which they had pretended to hold tip important financial
legislation in order to compel the

Ottawa, Feb. 4.—Sweeping changes-
iu the criminal code with respect to
social and other evils are asked for
in a memorandum submitted to tbe
government by a deputation headed
by Mr. W. Raney, K.C., of Toronto,,
representing the national committee
for the suppression of the white slave
trade, and Moral and .Social Reform
Council of Canada.
These organizations1 deputation,
which saw the prime minister and
the minister of justice, spoke tor a
number of religious denominations,
Young Men and Young Women's
Christian associations, Trade and
Labor Congress, Dominion Orange,
Canadian Purity Education association, Evangelical Association Ol
North America and National Council
of Women.
The memorandum sets forth the
proposed amendments to the code,
hlch special information showing
their need." Proposed amendments
Providing for the arrest of suspected persons found loitering in public
places by day.
The present provision in regard to
obscene books, pictures, etc, to be
changed by dropping the conditiOa
that such books must be for sale,
distribution or circulation before
there is an offence.
To tighten up the provision against
immoral theatrical performances by
including the owner of thc theatre,
and adding the words "or wherein
any entertainment or representation
of any nature tending to corrupt
morals Is given."
Provision regarding offences against
girls to be amended by raising the
age from sixteen to eighteen years,
instead of fourteen to sixteen as at
present. It is proposed to amend
the provision covering offences
against wards and female employees
by removing tlie limit contained in
the words "in a factory, mill, workshop, shop or store."
It is proposed that male persons
convicted of procuring be punished by
whipping; with similar punishment
lor enticing or attempting to entice,*
this section to cover cases of bringing girls to or taking them from

The evidence of two persons and
one police officer is to be accepted as
to the reputation of a bawdy house,

changes are suggested in regard to a
law against soliciting with thc object of extending the scope of the
code, and it is proposed that a man
convicted of living on the earnings of
immoral women may be whipped.
The memorandum adds:
"We believe that it such a proposal were made to parliament without a lobby for or against it, it
would carry by a large majority."

public place."
In cases of offences against girls of

of five hundred dollars or imprisonment for two years are proposed.

Lord Luusdowne wound up the debate for the opposition, Lord Morley

The attendance of peers wns quite
slack until a couple of hours before
division was taken, and the speeches
failed to infuse .new life into the
well-worn arguments.
Lord Morley, in closing the debate,
remarked the absence of tho ferocity
which characterized the debates on
the Oladstone measures, and replying
to Lord Lausdowne's warning that
the giving of Home Rule to Ireland
would be a menace to England, If
England ever were involved in serious international trouble, reminded
Lord Luusdowne that his own laud
policy would give I refund {-ash or
credit to the extent ot two hundred
millions Hritish money, and that
Lord Lansdowne would scarcely be
likely to do that if he re-ally believed
that Ireland was likely to become
England's enemy.
Lord Curzon in u speech early      in
the evening, also referred to Ibe list-
lessnes's the public bad shown     over ,
the hill and to "the deplorable    and '
unutterable flatness of the debates hi

In his speech Mr. Emerson made
scathing reference to the policy ot
Canadian banks in sending their mon-
!oy Into the United States to make
big profits, while Canadians suffered
, from money stringency from time to
time and to the action ol thc banks
j in taking part in real estate transactions in direct violation of thc
law. He also strongly condemned

rlfully low rates of interest. As lot

II. Emerson's speech upon the Dank
Act revision. "Wc in Canada have
come to that position," he said,
where twenty-three men control the
banks, tho insurance companies, the
trust and loan mortgage corporations, or, in a word, our financial institutions."
Throughout his speech, as he drew
attention to the tremtndous development in the centralization of financial power in Canada in recent years,
and as he urged that instead ot
passing a bank act of thc kind proposed by Hon.   Mr.   White, fn which
tyranny is breathed in every paragraph," steps should be taken to
safeguard the interests of thc
people. Mr. Emerson was listened
to with tge closest attention. Hut
the statement in connection with tho
centralization of the money power in
Canada was the one which caused the
The Westworeland member quoted
from an# article which had appeared
in a Canadian magazine in which
was given a list of the 121 Canadian
corporations with a capitalization ol
at least $500,000 each. Forty-eight
directors are common to all those
different corporations, and the article points out that "at the bottom
of the whole economic structure In
Canada, are twenty-three capitalist
directors who arc members of ninety
out of the total one hundred and
twenty-one corporations." Mr. Emerson did .not give the list to the
house, but these are the-money lords
in question:
iu the corporate power are the bonking interests. Yet, there is lurking
in every section and paragraph ot the
bill the menace of further centralization ot corporate or financial power."

With a   lorest    area ol 182,008,000

Mr. U. G. Curtis, president ot (lie
Erie Lumber company, of Erie, Pa.,
who bag large timber interests in
British Columbia, has been visiting
on the coast. He ia enthusiastic regarding the possibilities of tbe lumber industry following the opening ol
ttie Panama canal resulting in giving
access to new markets on the Allan-
tic seaboard ot North and South
The visitor and his associates have
in contemplation the erection of a
large sawmill up the coast to cater
to that trade. Their,holdings are
estimated to exceed one billion leet,
distributed at various points, including Huaskln Lake, Drury Inlet,
Broughton island. Gilford, Bute,
Knight and. Loughborough Inlets.
They have been doing considerable
logging at Huaskin Lake during the
past three or four years.
Mr. Custis' views are outlined in
the following Interview: "The rate
on lumber, including canal tolls, from
British Columbia ports t0 the eastern Atlantic, seaboard as far as Boston does not promise to exceed $10
per thousand feet, as compared with
the prevailing all-rail rate of about
$20. This will give the inferior
grades of lumber of the Pacific coast
access tn a vast market throughout
the eastern and middle states, in addition, to a wider field on the east
coast of South America.
"New York state is expending millions of dollars in building a ship
canal from Buffalo tn Albany, there
connecting with deep-water navigation on the Hudson river. This canal
will prove a great factor in ensuring
cheap transportation of western lumber to the big centres in tlie interior.
Wc are now selling inast cedar siding
and shingles in that market in preference to anything that can Ik* produced back there, Good timber of
other kinds is also getting scarcer
every year. It may surprise British
Columbia millmen to know that Pennsylvania hemlock, the poorest variety of lumber turned out, is selling at
the mills for $21 per thousand feet.
"At present, the high rail freight.
rates prohibit tho use there of anything but the highest grades of Pacific coast lumber, Under changed
conditions the demand for western
lumber of every grade will be enor-

An some Indication of tlie tendency
uf public opinion in tho custom pro-
\ Inces with regard to Canada's
naval policy and Hon R 1.. Dot
den's attitude thereon, it is extrome-
l*. interesting to read tho plain utterances ol i in- Montreal Gazette, tho
oldost and probably, the most Influential Conservative journal, published in the province of Quebec. The
itrticlc has attracted dotalnlon-wido
attention, und the Herald takes pleu-
Kuro in reproducing It in lull.
The article reads .is Follows:
■'Some ol the talking imperialists
of (ireai Britain have begun discussing the propriety ol holding another
conference to ascertain the extent nf
Canada's desire to eo-oporalc with
the other colonies in defence <>i Interests in the Pacific. Incidentally
the admiralty and govornmonl of
Great Britain are being warned
agafnsl taklog too nnrrow a view of
the dutj thai will rest upon them
in this connect,on. Tho colonies;
ram.* happily through a somowhaft
lengUiy period during wtiloli many;
men prominent in the public life of
the Cnfted Kingdom thought it would
he well !•> Ioobo Hie bond and let the
possessions, always except India, no
(heir own way to their own Independent destinies. The colonies will
also, doubtless, come happily
through this new period wherein men
promlnonl in the public life of the
United Kingdom gUe their minds to
devising ways for putting military
burdens upon their people. Things
would go on belter, however, if
there was less seeming desire on the
other side of the ocean to regulate
affairs here according to the ideas
thai have their birth in European
continental conditions. Canada's
history is not long—as tho lives of
nations go. Us Incidents have heen
stirring enough al times, however,
and have necessitated no sina.ll sacri-
cos on the pari nf the people. The
country has been twice invaded and
several limes annoyed as tin* result
of Great Britain's policy, in ihe
shaping ot which Canadians had no
voice. People here have been celebrating lately, anil will celebrate
during the present year tlie cent unary of many fights in a war, little iu
one sense, but heavy in the weight
it put upon the country, in which,
having to choose between their coin-
fort'and loyalty to Hie motherland,
they went forward to their duty as a
matter of course, From this service in defence of their local interest
ii was a natural development that
when they had grown stronger and
richer they should two general inns
later have done their duty as a matter of course in defence of wider interests in South Africa.
"A people with a story of such
character dues not need tn have the
drums beating all the time to make
it think right. If it did it would
not be true tu the stock from which
it sprung. Tin* talkers should rest
their Intellects for a while. They do
nol understand what their efforts
may produce. Canada Is going forward. The experiment ot the late
government in the matter ot naval
preparation, while it did not show
the results that had been expected
by those who directed it, was om the
line uf assuming a responsibility
that local conditions would not have
made seemingly necessary for many
years perhaps. It was accepted by
the mass of Ihe people as proper,
fts acceptance made it easier for the
present government to secure approval of the measure now before parliament, and which, when il becomes
n law, will put a fairly large charge
followed by other charges. Men on
the other side of the ocean would do
better for the cause they seem to
have at heart by letting the willing
horse make its own pace, It is going In the right direction; and it Is
not going so slowly as to suggest
the need nf an imperial l.ish.     There
ait* many things to be thought of in
Canada In connection with naval aad
military outlays. Probably a third
of the people are nol of British descent, Probablj nol a tenth ot them
were born iu the British Isles. They
do not al! see things through London
spectacles. It is a notable thing
that they not only accept but readily accept all that comes, to them in
the way of duty to the empire. Tlie
extremists cannot expect or hope for
any more. They should leave what
is well to develop what is better by
natural      process. To   force the
growth may he harmful also when
the talk directed In ihe colonies
seems Intended tu have effect on the
domestic politics of tho railed Kingdom, with which matters the colon-
should have nothing io do."

The deputy minister of mines has
supplemented his preliminary report,
Issued ii short time ago, and in tlie
new volume treats of the coal mining industry throughout the province, with special reference to the
Crows Nest collieries, as follows;
In South blast Kootenay the (Vows
Nest district mines made a good
.showing, considering that the long-
contlnucd miners' strike of 1011 had
greatly demoralized the market tor
coal bv largely diverting the trade
to I'nited States fields. It is satisfactory to find that, notwithstanding
tin* serious check experienced coal
production figures for 1012 reached a
total only 60,000 tons smaller than
that ot 1010. The quantities (gross)
produced In three successive yenrs,
Wire as follows: In 1010. 1,865,000
l.mg tons; 1011, 443,000 tons; 1012,
1,200,000 tons. The col** production
figures have already lieen given. The
Crows Nest Pass Coal company, besides continuing operations In various mines at its Coal Creek and
Michel collieries, ouened a new mine
at Coal Creek, known ns No. I Eastj
developing it to a producing capacity
of l.nnn tons a day. In addition, a
new seam of coal, ahove No. 1 seam
Michel collieries, opened a new mine
the close of the year there were
being made preparations for its permanent development.
This company's output ot coal from
the Coal Creek and Michel collieries
was about 0(13,1100 long tons, uf
which 327,000 tuns were made Into
220,000 tons of coke. Only ordinary
mining and development were done at
the colliery of the Hosmer Mines,
Ltd., the gross production of coal
last year having lieen 213,000 tons of
which 60,000 tons was made into
•14,000   tons of   coke.       The CorWn
Coal and Coke eotnpan-y continued us
preparations tu get out a large
quantity of coal from its No, 3 mine,
as is called the big deposit of coal
opened from ihe surface at uu altitude tf 800 to Hon feet higher than
the main level into No. 1 mine, from
which latter practically all of tho
coal shipped last year was obtained.
To provide transportation facilities
for the new mine, eight miles of
standard guage railway was graded
iu 1012, and the rails placed iu position for seven miles. The coming On
nt winter necessitated the postpone-,
ment for several months ol Ihe work
of completion of this railway. Already at No. 3 the surface debris
has been cleared and stripped over a
considerable area, the intention being
to work this deposit id coal, proved
to he 300 feet across, as an open
Preliminary returns received show
a gloss production in 1012 of 3,060,-
000 long tons of coal, as compared
with 2,308,000 tons in 1911, and
3,130,000 tons in 1010, The quantities made into coke in these several
years were: In 1012, about 896,000
tons; mil, 105,000 tons; and 1010,
330,000 Ions, The net quantities ot
coal—that is, the production on record after deduction of the coal made
Into coke-were: For 1012, 2,650,000
tons; 1011, 2,103,000 tons; and PRO,
2,800,000 tons. In estimating the
net production For 1912, an allowance has lieen made for a possible
slight reduction in the total when
(he final figures are received. The
quantities of coke manufactured iu
the respective years were as follows; In 1012, '204,800 tons; 1011,
66,000 tons; PM0, 218,000 tons. Of
course, all these quantities omit,odd
figures   befow   thousands.   The com
parison of gross production as between that of the years 1012 and
PRO, respectively, is made for the
reason that in the latter year the
output was the largest** iu the
history of coal mining in British,
Columbia. In this connection it is
of interest to note that, notwithstanding that labor difficulties s(,
affected the operation of the coal
mines at Extension aud Cumberland,
Vancouver Island, during the last
quarter of thc year as to cause a decreased production trom them in 1012
of 107,000 tons as compared with
1911, the net decrease In* production
ot the whole province was but 73,000
Ions, so that had il not been for
the temporarily unfavorable conditions at the mines just mentioned,
• here is little doubt that the year
1012 would have been a record year
ill the production of coal.
Reviewing the production in 1012
of the separate districts, it is seen
that Vancouver Island mines together made an output of about 1,553,000
tuns; those of Nicola and Similka-
meeii, 214,000 tons, and ot Crows
Nest, l,2!io,ooo tons. The whole of
the 305,000 tons made into coke
was, from ('rows Nest mines, so
that the net product,on of coal in
thai district was about 004,000
Taking the figures of value as they
now appear in the table of estimated
production, it will be seen that the
value of coal and coke is less than
MO,000 snort of being one-third of
that of the whole of the mineral pro-
duel ion of the province for last year.
Further, a comparison covering thc
fast live-year period, 1908-1012,
shows that the proportion of value ot
coal and coke was 35 per cent ' of
that of all the mineral production
of British Columbia in that period.
During the previous similar period,
1003-1007, the proportion was rather
less than 26 per cent. These figures
indicate the increasing importance of
coal miningi as compared with other
branches, of the mining Industry of
the province.
That further expansion of coal
mining operations is intended is
manifest, for preparations for increasing the output of coal are already well advanced. Before briefly
noticing these preparations It will
probably be of interest to have presented a few figures showing the
accelerating increase iu coal production, especially in quite recent years.
The record of coal mining on Vancouver Island covers a period commencing in 1835. Coal was . first
shipped from Kast Kootenay (Crows
Nest) mines iu 1908, and from the
Nicola Valley mines in 1007. Of the
aggregate production of approximately 41,113,000 tons of coal (including
that made into coke) during the
whole period of seventy-seven years,
3,029,000 tons was the total output
in fifty years, to 1885, inclusive;
21,255,Olio tons in twenty years, to
190S, inclusive; and 16,859,000 tons in
seven years, to PR2, inclusive. These
figures are of interest as Indicating
Ihe increased production ot recent.
years—from an average of 1,082,750
tons a year during the twenty-year
period above mentioned to an average ot 2,408,430 tons a year during
the last seven years, which is an
increase of a   little better than 126

N'auainio, The Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmulr), Limited, is opening a
new mine, No. 8, situated about a
mile north of its No. 7 mine, Union
Colliery, Comox district..|
This company is also*developing
hydroelectric power for U£e at Its
Union Colliery mines, near Cumberland. The Pacific Coast Coal Mines,
Ltd., besides continuing the development of its mine at Suquash, in tho
northeastern part uf Vancouver Island, is opening a new mine to the
south of Nauaimo, at a place about
a mile nean r to Boat Harbor, the
company's shipping port for coal
from ils Fiddick colliery, South Wcl-
fington. Production of coal should
be commenced in 1913 at ail three of
thc now i 'nes above mentioned. In
thc Nicola Valley district .progivss
was made at several of the smaller
coal properties. Of these, the Inland Coal and Coke Co. was the only,
one to increase its output—from
11,000 tons In 1911 to 31,000 tons in
The Diamond Vale Collieries, Ltd.,
suspended mining operations during
ihe greater part of the year, following an explosion, which caused the
loss of several lives; work was resumed later in tlie year. While the
output ot coal from the mines of the
Nicola Valley Coal and Coke company, the oldest company and the
one operating on the largest scale
in this district, was smaller than in
Iflll (approximately 152,000 tons, as
compared with 191,000 tons in lfllL),
important exploratory work was
done, for in prospecting from No. 4
mine a new seam of coal was discovered and afterward its development was undertaken.
Much diamond-drilling was also
done, and this definitely proved the
continuance, over a comparatively
large area, of the various seams of
coal the company has opened in its
several mines. High railway freight
charges for transportation of coal to
the larger towns are a serious drawback, preventing this company from
effectively competing on a
scale with other coal mining
panics more favorably situated.

at Rome for his faith during tlie
persecution under Claudius 11, 14th
February, 270. The custom of
choosing valentines on his day is of
considerable antiquity, and it was
an old belief that birds began to

St. Valentine's day young people of
both sexes used to meet, and each of
them drew one by lot Irom a number
of names of the opposite sex, which
Were put into a common receptacle.
Each gentleman thus got a lady lor
his valentine, and became the valentine of a lady. Thc gentlemen remained bound to the services ol their
valentines for a year. A similar
custom prevailed in the Roman

boys drew from a common box, each

movement for free trade between the
frontier departments of France and
the Swiss-French cantons is not only
on foot, but the new French president and his cabinet will be called

The French deputy, M. Emile I'av-

the French government to denounce
the treaty of June 11, 1881, , ith
Switzerland, and permit free trade
between the French frontier territories called the zone, and the Swiss
cantons touching them.
There is much indignation In Haiti--
Savoio against the existing uu iff
with Its neighbors, th? Swiss, who
are willing to see the custom house
on the frontier abolished, but en
equal terms. Switzerland is ready
to meet France half way In this important matter, which will rid both

lehrntion of    the signing of      tlie
treaty of   pence between Britain and
I America at Ghent, on Christmas
Eve, 1814, is taking wider scope
than was at first thought likely.
Notices have been received of the intentions of all the principal cities in
Canada to make some sort of demonstration, mainly in connection witb
the different fairs. To that end
committees have been formed here
and in America to consider tin; best
methods. One suggestion is that
commemorative monuments should he

United Stall's. Another is that

! that the occasion will especially well
lit itself for the proposed erection by
I Canada ot   the monument to General
, Wolfe.

lord mayor presiding.
I    Mr. Pcrris, secretary to the    committee, having   read   a number      of

1914,    a century of unbroken     peace
between   the    British and American
peoples  will    be completed.      Committees    composed  of representative!

peoples who have no other idea but
that of living stda by side in permanent amity and peace.
One suggestion that has already;
been Mihmitted to the American
committee is that monuments which
shall commemorate in an impressive
and adequate manner the Bin years ol
peace shall be erected in Canada,
England and the lUnlted States.
There are other proposals that
have provisionally appeared to the
British committee to be also worthy
of adoption. The lirst proposal is
thut a monument shall be erected to
George Washington, in Westminister
Abbey or Westminster hall, a*- a testimony to out ungrudging and generous recognition of the influence for,

American people by the example of

mises that he did not kvep, who was
conservative in design and daring in
action, who > was the essence ol upright loyalty, at once lucid and full
of energy. All these qualities were
manifested ia the part he played, in
the closing days of 1808, in the
Dreytus scandal, which shook Frame
to thc depths and whose echoes within the last, lew days have shaken the
Poincare cabinet.
About this time Raymond Poincare
began to snow that clear Insight into I lie dangers to national and
dividual liberty which are hidden ur»
dcr the glowing promises ol socialism
and became one of the group of
French, statesmen who have, brought
about the reaction in France (rom
Socialist dreams to greater sanity.
The changes in tbe political kaleido.
scope brought Poincare back to his
practice at tbe bar, and there his
high gifts of insight, lucid eloquence,
and force won him a considerable
fortune. But this born parliamentarian was not destined to remain
long without a leading part in tlie
destinies ol France. M, Sarricn
succeeded M. Rouvier as prime minister in 1906 and asked Raymond Poincare to become his finance minister,
an offer which was accepted. Then
Sarrien tell in the unstable equilibrium of French parliamentary
groups, and Georges Clemenceau,
"the old debutant," who had hitherto been a destroyer of ministries,
was called upon to construct a ministry in his turn.
Under Clemenceau, Poincare held a
less conspicuous plaee, but with not
less conspicuous distinction. Further
revolutions of the wheel o( political
fortutrt followed, and at length Raymond Poincare was called on by
President Fallieees to form a cabinet ot his own, as a result of certain
Central African questions which cotu-
p'clled tho retirement ot his predeces-
s,,r. lie succeeded brilliantly, constructing a "cabinet of all the talents, " whieh contained more men of
genius and more distinguished parliamentary leaders than had ever before composed a. council of ministers
in France.
One nt the chief Internal questions
which he and his colleagues have had
to face is the new- militant policy of
the revolutionary Socialists, the policy associated with the words "syndicalism" and "sabotage," which
means collective violence and destruction applied as a weauon In "the
struggle between capital and labor."
We have had illustrations ol, the
spirit ot this new movement in ttiis
country. We shall in all prohuMtvty
have still lurther. illustration ol it.
And when we realize its lull scope
and ils menuce to the very elements
ol personal and,national Ireedom we
shall be better able to understand
(he work which has already been done
In France In conquer it by men like
Georges Clemenceau, Arlitide Ilriaiid
and Raymond Poincare.
Of the great external problem
which the Poincare ministry has been
called on to (ace, Mie Balhan war
and the danger ot a ganeral conflagration, we have allowed M. Poincare
tn speak on his own behalf. In both
interior and exterior dlfnoultles he
has shown himseU a great statesman,!
wise, courageous, the soul ot honor1
and rectitude.

Londonderry, Ireland, Feb. I.—
The Irish Home Rule party won
notable victory over the Unionists in
the election of a member of parliament for this city.
The poll, which was, as usual, n
very close one, resulted as follows:
David ('. Hogs, Nationalist, mill!).
Colonel II. A. Pakcnlijwn, I'nionist,
Nationalist majority, 57.
'Hie seat has been held since 11100
by tlu* Martinis or Hamilton*, who
was recently elevated to the bouse o(
lords on the death of Ills father, Ihe
Dul* of Abercorn.
Thc victory of the Home Rulers
gives them a majority of members of
parliament from ihe province of Ulster in the bouse of commons* Kv-
teaorrtinary efforts were made by
both parties to bring every elector
to ihe polls and as a result of their
exertions, out of a total electorate
o( 5402 voters, Mil cast their ballots. Many of tlie sick and Infirm
inhabitants were taken to the polling
booths in ambulances.
One Unionist: voter dropped dead in
his own house while a motor car
with a doctor was waiting at tlie
door to convey "hiin" to the booth.
Another, a paralytic, was able to
utter only Mr. lJakenham's name and
the vote was allowed.
Much fear had beeni expressed that
the election would give rise to serious disturbances owing to the feverish excitement prevailing in parts of
I'lstcr at thc present moment on the
home rule question. A largie lorce
of the Irish Royal constabulary bad
been drafted into the city", but their
services were not orten called Unto
The election, on this occasion, was
made interesting by the fact that
both the Unionise and Home Rule
candidates were Protestants.
The fire losses on the P. Hums Calgary packing plant have finally been
assessed at. approximately $010,000,
which, according to .1. B. Creagan,
o[ Ormsby, Clapp und Anderson, fire
insurance brokers, was fully covered
by insurance. The task of estimating the amount of damage and salvage J)roVed a very difiiciilt one aud
although tlie lire broke out on January 12th, il was not completely extinguished till January 20th, which
caused considerable delay. Tin* hiss

In the course of a preliminary estimate ol the mineral production of
the province for the year 1312, Mr.
William Fleet Robertson, provincial
mineralogist, makes the following references to the mining industry in
Kast Koottnay:
■The value of tlie mineral produc-
toion of the East Kootenay mines in
1912 will probably be found, when the
returns have been received, to be
more than twice as much as that of
1911. This will be accounted for by
the fact that coke, such as caused tho
I large decrease in the output of 1911,
The adverse eu'eel the suspension of
j production m 1911 had upon the mar-
■ set for Crows Nasi coal has already
been mentioned, with that in mind, it
lis nol surprising lo Hnd that the tlfc-
ures for 1018 show a smaller proline
tion than in 1910, this Involving a
decrease in the total value for the
.year ol about $i.p»n.onn. As the
value of metalliferous mineral production is estimated to have been alsi,
t smaller, by aboul $850,000, it lol-
! lows thai the total decrease In 1912
i as compared with M'lfl was some
thing like $500,000. However, it is
gratifying to find thai the recovery
, was so large, lot last year's total
value appears to have been about
$5,600,000, as compared with $»,-
122,000 for 1910, and $2,175,000 for
1911. This is assuming that there
was an appreciable increase iu the
total value nf the metalliferous mineral output in 1912; it may he, however, that final returns will show
that this assumption takes too conservative a view of the situation.
"The production of coal and coke
in this district has already been
briefly noted. In passing, it may
he mentioned that in value it was
$1,901,000 in 1911), $1,408,000 iu
1911, ftnd about $4,750,000 (estimated) in 1912.
| As to metalliferous mining, the
yield of -placer gold from Kast Kootenay streams has again been placed
at $8,(100, The total output ol load*
and silver from the lode mine*) does
not appear to have shown much
change; though there is a probability
of final figures proving that there
was an increase of 85,000 to 40,000
! o?„ of silver, which, together with a
higher average price for the year,
should add $40,000 or thereabouts to
I the value of the year's production of
this metal in Ibis district. The productive mines were the Sullivan, St,
Kugtcne, Monarch and Society (Writhe last in but small quantity, Complete returns are not yet available,
hut it is probable that the receipts at
tbe smelter from tbe respective
mines were about as follows: Crude
ore: From the Sullivan 81,SOU tons,
and the Society Clirl less than 100
tons. Concentrate; from the Monarch (situated near Field, Northeast
Kootenay! 1,20(1 tons, and the St.
Eugene 1,100 tons.
"The construction of the Kootenay
Central railway by the Canadian
Pacific railway company was continued throughout the year—southward
from that company's main line at
Golden, and northward from ils
Crows Nest line east of Cranhiook.
Late in the year a train service bo-i
tween Fernie (on the Crows Nest
line) and Fop Steele was inaugurated, while freight was scot over a
length of the line completed from
Golden southward. There was n(>
ore shipped from mines along the
route of the new railway.
To cope with the tremendous increase in the travelling population
throughout Canada the Canadian
Pacific lias found il necessary to reorganize its sleeping, dining car and
news services, direct from tlalifav in
the east to Hritish Columbia, in the
west, and in this connection the following new appointments have been
made to bring the entire staff up to
the level of the increasing responsibilities and ecuipnient of the company: A. Cooper, formerly general

Earl G-rey's letter to the LouUoa
Times defending the late Uberal government in Canada from the charge
mode against it by Austen Chamberlain in relation to its advocacy of
reciprocity with the United States
was in these terms:
"I do not envy any mow who can
read Mr. Austen Chamberlain's
speech at Acocks Green without experiencing both a thrill of admiration
and a feeling of sympathy for the
speaker. It is the speech ol a
statesman whose views and conduct
are the outcome of a resolute disinterested determination to subordinate*
all minor considerations to thc higher requirements of the empire. lie
has, howe-er, in the course ol his
speech, not once bul twice, referred
to Canadian ..flairs in a way which
cannot fail lo be deeply and justly
resented by nearly one-half ot his
majesty's most loyal Canadian subjects.
"With your permission I desire to
protest, not lor thc first time,
against the assumption that Sir Wilfrid Laurier1 k policy of reciprocal
free trade in certain natural products between Canada and the i'nited States showed any want of imperial spirit on his part.
"On the contrary, it was the belle!
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his col-;
leagues that the free entry of the
products of Canadian farms, fisheries,
and forests into a protected market]
of over ninety million people would
add greatly to the wealth of Canada,
and thus create an increased market
for the protected manufacturers of
Canada and of the I'nited Kingdom,
that caused them to favor the policy
of reciprocity.
"It is possible—I may go further
nnd say it is not improbable ■ that
had the policy been accepted by the
people of Canada the British preference would hove been further increased.
''As one ol those whose desire it is
to secure the nearest possible approximation to inter-imperial free
trade that (1) the revenue requirements and (21 the national necessities of each self-governing unit of
the empire will permit, I am inclined
to agree with those who believe that
the adoption ol the reciprocity proposals might have brought about a
nearer approximation to that ideal
of inter-imperial free trade which is
so dear to the heart of Mr. Austen
Chamberlain. No; Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier's policy was not conceived in any
anti-imperial spirit. Hut the
speeches of President Taft and ol
ethers alarmed Canadians as to the
character   of    American   ambitions,

Grey's courage and sense of justice.
