The regular meeting of the
City Council was held on Monday
evening in the Council Chambers
-Present: His Worship, the Mayor
Aldermen, Parnham, McDonald,
Maxwell, Banks, Miller and
Mitchell.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and adopted.
The minutes of special meeting
to consider sale of Cement Sidewalk Bonds of $9,000 were read
as follows;-*-
An offer from Mr. Tapley,
broker of Vancouver, to accept
the bonds at 90 was received.
The deal would realize the
Council $8,000 for •ffi.OOO bonds,
which was not considered satisfactory and the offer was rejected
It was decided to interview Mr.
Morrison of the Royal Bank concerning the matter.
Minutes of a subsequent
special meeting were read which
stated that Mr. Morrison had
advised the Council to accept Mr
Tapley.s offer, it being a fair one
considering the present state of
the financial market.
It was decided to rescind the
motion of the previous special
mee'ing and accept Mr. Tapley's
offer of 90.
Constable Ward submitted his
monthly report as follows;—
Scavenging _._*.._'. -.$92.50
Scavenging Buckets ..   2.00
Dug Tax................  8.00
City Road Tax.........      82.00
City Hall Rent.....:. 40.00
Police Court Fines 54.00
278.00
The City Clerk read the following accounts for the city:—
Nanaimo Goal $15.00
H. Ward.    4.00
19.00
Communication was read from
Mr. Frank Dallos objecting to
the Sewer Rental Tax, as he had
paid II per month for the past
two years as a tax for the use of
the sewer.
In discussing tbe matter there
was a difference of opinion regarding the meaning of the Sewer
Rental Tax and its purpose.
Scavenging changes were also
discussed. It was advocated that
the scavenger fee be levied on
the- landlord * and not on the
tenant
The City Clerk said according
to the by-law the city could not
cohect it from the tenant.
Constable Ward asked permission to make a statement re-
' gat-ding the mattered said that
according to the books there were
people very much iin arrears in
'scavenging payment, and .that
some resented being asked'to pay
.it. ■'
Letter was received from B. C
Telephone Co. also blue print of
plan of lay-out of poles purposed to be erected in the city.
It was resolved to accept the
plan, but the city reserved the
right to erect poles for street
lighting purposes.
The Mayor reported interviewing Mr. Clinton regarding the
lighting of the city. He said
Mr. Clinton guaranteed that the
rate would not average more than
$50 per month for the whole
year,.and that the Electric Light
Co. would supply lamps for
Dunsmuir Avenue free. Also
that the Company would not
press for immediate payment of
the cost of installation and
changing of the system.
Regarding the installation cost
estimated at $300, Aid, Maxwell
said it was a municipal by-law
matter as it involved the spending of money other than current
account.
Aid. McDonald said if the city
could not meet a small account
of $300 it was time to quit.
It was decided to change the
32 candle power lights to 40 and
put pr&per hood over same where
needed.
«*
Aid. Parnham thought that
pressure ought to be brought
upon the government regarding
the financing of the schools and
the securing of #2,500. The costs
of the schools were about $4,000
and revenue from the 7 mill tax
was only *#1,500. There will be
six vacancies for teachers at the
end of the present term and
$2,500 will be r.eeded.to pay back
salaries for teachers.
Aid. Maxwell thought it was
time the schools "were put on a
proper financial basis.
This going to Victoria, hat in
hand, every year was not a
proper thing. All monies that the
city were able to collect had to
go towards the upkeep of the
schools. He said the city ought
to discharge its obligation at the
7 mill rate and leave the government to do the rest.
It was stated' that there were
lots in the city not paying the
school tax, and it was decided to
interview the owners regarding
the same.
The matter of children from
outside the city attending school
was dismissed, and it was decided
to call the attention of the school
trustees to the same.
It was ultimately decided to
approach the government and
try and secure $2j500 for school
purposes.
The Council adjourned.

New Grounds Open for Baseball
and Football—Large
Membership
The Bevan Athletic Association
is doing great work in the way
of establishing recreation
grounds. The committee appointed to clear the grounds assigned
for their use by the Canadian
Collieries has already cleared a
space 500 yds. square, taking out
all the stumps and making the
square level. Also rolling and
sowing grass which makes the
grounds very attractive for baseball and football. The residents
of Bevan are proud to know that
in these they take the lead and
the most satisfactory part of the
pleasure grounds is that the
labour is all paid for and leaves
a balance in the treasury.
The Bevan Athletic Association
is to be congratulated on the
energy and perseverance shown
in this connection. It means
that Bevan is not going to be the
last coach in the train of mining
towns of the Canadian Collieries
in baseball and football.
Thomas A. Spruston, manager
of No. 7 and 8 mines, takes an
active part in seeing that the
employees in that part of the
Canadian Collieries enjoy themselves during their leisure hours
and the men in return appreciate
the kindness shown by their
manager.
At a business meeting of the
Athletic Association on Monday
evening, when there was some
50 members pre-ent, the ambition
shown by all members in the
business before the meeting was
such that would lead one to believe that Bevan was not going
to be far behind the first in the
athletic sports of the district.
Bevan and Cumberland teams
have completed arrangements to
play a game of football on the
new recreation ground tonight.
According to reports this should
be a very interesting game, and
West Cumberland it is said are
seeking expert players from outside points for the purpose of
showing Bevan how things are
done. Bevan Boys say it is not
exactly fair to solicit players from
the woods, but they are deter
mined to put it all over the West
Cumberland team.
To make, the evening's sport
up to date the West Cumberland
Conservative Band will accompany the team to Bevan and
render some of their beautiful
selections during the evening.
A dance will be held after the
football game in the Bevan Hall.
The regular train will leave
Cumberland crossing on the No.
7 track at 6 o'clock, returning
after the dance.
Mr. C.' H. Tarbell recently
m..de a visit to Bevan and upon
seeing the newly made recreation
grounds kindly donated the netting for the back stop of the base
ball games, for which the Athletic
Association wishes to thank the
donor.

the following information regard-
the importation of Washington

of Washington coal is as follows
for the four principal cities of RC.
Vancouver 128,152 tons

"Now what about tLis unknown
nan who the same night comes to
Cranby Hall, accuses Sir George of
murder and blackmails him? Tho
prosecution have been unable to find
Mm and 1 maintain until they do to
(hey rtmnot prove tlicir case, they
cannot prove Sir George guilty. Tills
man confessed that he littil seen Sir
George and Oscar Soral enter the
wood together, and later on Sir
Georgo reappeared alone. How is It
that this nian does not come Drward
suid boldly accuse tlio prisoner? If
Sir George Hetherington is the murderer he need have no fear; he could
certainly come forward, every inducement has been offered him. But
'if ho'faiscly accused the prisoner in
Hie hope of pecuniary reward, he
would naturally now use every means
In hia power to escape detection.
."Gentlemen of tli I j jury, in searching for tlie man who committed thii
crime I should have thought the lirst.
person the police endeavored to find
would have been this unknovn individual: It seems to me that the
police have far more reason to suspect him I han Sir George. If lie did
not kill Oscar Soral, may he uot
have been guilty of a murderous it-
tack on Sir George and hla chauffeur?
If lie were present on the moorland
road when Sir George nnd Oscar
Soral met how was it, that, following
the car along that road after the car
bad disappeared, he did no; overtake
the ear after the accident?"
Wbeh he touched on the evidence
of Silas Saluzo the counsel':.; voice
rang scornfully. They could not take
the word of a man, ho claimed, who
under a pledge of secrecy liatl deceived and betrayed his client, using
both husband and wife for purposes
of gain and to serve his own ambition.
He wound up with a strong appeal
for Justice. Hia strong card, lhe one
point he relied on and emphasized,
was that concerning thc mysterious
man who had blackmailed Sir George.
■ The man who bad appeared In ti:a
lirst chapter of this strange and eventful story: the man who had lirst
brought the dreadful charge against
bis client an. then ".ad absolutely disappeared: ued in spite of every endeavor both on tlie part of llie police,
. the prosecution and lite defence, had
failed to rcappea. In this, thc last
chapter.
"Before you can send Sir George to

When ho 'tail finished there .*as a
brief Interval before lit.* judge summed us. He adniiltcd tbat thc case
was ouo of the most extraordinary
and in mani ways llio most painful
It had ever bren his duly to try. He
reviewed tit * I'videnoe, weighed it
coldly, critically, Impartially.
It was a quarter lo four, the third
day of tbe trial when thc jury retired
to consider its verdict, it wnr, absent
for two hours and a half. When It returned the prisoner, Sir Georgo Hetherlngton, stood up and looked ot each
member attentively, with a Utile
morn on bis faco than curiosity.
What lie really felt no onc knew, no
one would ever know.
But tv.'o men watching him from
lhe well of the court eagerly, closely,
nt that moment envied and admired
him, And as the Jorcmnn rose to deliver ids verdict one woman hid her
face In her hands, a low groan escaped her lips; a woman with masses
jot inky black hair, a whits face and
largo dream-laden eyes and scarlet
lips.
And tbe oilier woman, a girl witli
sun-kissed hair and eyes like stars
in a purple sky and a brave, tender
mouth, held herself erect and looked
straight into the eyes of thc man :n
the dark, smiling at him*
Those: who saw wondered. And
were afraid.
Tlie verdict was guilty.
Still no movement, no round from
Hetherington. For a moment he
caught Peggy's eyes nnd he smiled,
then tinned and gravely faced the
jury. In answer to the usual question lie opened his hands with a helpless gesture.
"I can only say, my lord, that I believe I am innocent. I can remember
nothing, nothing. 1 don't believe I
have taken a man's life. I don't believe I had ever seen Oscar Soral until'I starched fof 1 Im and found his
body in Deepshot Wood. I don't believe—"
Suddenly his voice rose, his face
changed color, became horribly grey,
his eyes dilated. Raising his hands be
pressed them to his temple, then beat
his forehead as If trying to remember.
"1 don't believe—"
There was a dreadful pause; he
swung round ns If appealing to the
court. A laugh escaped his lip3 wblch
sent a thrill of fear through everyone.
'I don't know wild I nm. I don't
know where I came from. You can't,
condemn an unknown man—a man
who knows nothing and remembers nothing! a man who was nc. when this
murder was committed?"
The judge slowly raised something
in his hands—he was placing the black
cap on his head. He was speaking in
a low tpiiet voice. Yet each word
was like the tolling of a funeral bell,
Hetherlngton swayed and a warder
stepped to his side.
"To be taken to tho place from
Whence you came, to be hanged by
the neck'until you are dead * * *."
A piercing Bcvcatn rose from lhe
body of the court; it did not come
from Peggy Mehon, but from the condemned man's wife, Lady Hetherington.
"» * • And may tlie Lord have
mercy on your soul."
lt. wtis all over. Tliere was a horrible silence. Ther. suddenly the prisoner's legs shook beneath him, he almost fell. A warder on either side of
him caught, him by the arms. Instantly he drew himself erect and flung
llicm off* The action was so quick,
so unexpected, they fell back. His face
was like death now. His eyes were
burning.
And then ho laughed. No one in tlie
court moved or spoke. The warders
hesitated, hands outstretched yet
afraid to touch him. He reeled a
I couple of steps forward and faced the
judge.
"My lord, I am not Sir Goorge Hetherington! I mneinbor—1 remember!"
Antl again a laugh, "I am George
Dart, Journalist, on The Edinburgh
Times. Taking my yearly holiday,
tramping over Dartmoor, lishlng. I
remember ■*"•'* I tell you—I remember! 1 see it all as clearly as if
it had only just happened!—lt has
only just happened—for me. By God,
yes, the murdered man is not Oscar
Soral!—it was Sir George lletherington   •   »   »"

"For about fifteen months my III tie

Resurrect'on
Most of us ought to be keenly interested in death, for wo never have
been ready ali't We bave u'ter
rea.lcd*oir heigtt, never measured
up to what possibilities are within
us. The proof Is a matter of common
observation. A big company gets into
serious business difflculities, and tbe
officials, who had been fussy, vain,
and pompous, become men again, call
their subordinates in and plan the
campaign so that everyone goes out a
hero—to win. Like Kipling's gluttonous old Roman general, they become
"young again atncug tho trumpets."

Hard water spoils most teas but not
Red Rose. It is distinctive in this respect, being specially selected and blended
to suit the hard water of the Prairie Provinces. No matter how hard the water it
cannot destroy the rich strength and flavor of Red

why Red Rose is such a favorite.

SHE HAS THE VERY
BEST OF REASONS
WHY  THIS  MANITOBA  LADY  RE*
COMMENDS DODD'S KIDNEY
PILL'-
Mrs.      Bourbonlerre      Hsd      Many
Troubles, .711 of v.hich Were Caused
by Sick Kidneys, and She Found a
Simple and Complete Cure.
St.    Rose    du    Lac,    Manitoba.—
(Special)—Mrs.    D. J. Bourbonlerre,
an estimable lt.dy of this place,   is
losing    no    opportunity    to    praise
Dodd's Kidney Pills to her   friends.
And she has a reason. Here It is In
her own words.
"I suffered very much from my
kidneys," Mrs. Bourbon! rre says. "I
was tired and nervous, my nppstlte
was uncertain and my nemo-y was
failing. I had heart fluttcrlngs. my
back was sore and I was troubled
with headaches. Rheumatism w. s
finally added to ir.y sufferiugs and I
was iu a bad way Indeed.
"I tried one medicine, hut It did
mt no good, aud then I was advised
to try Dodd's Kidney Pills. I am
very glad that I did. for now after
taking four boxes I am a well woman
again."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cured Mrs.
Bourbonlerre because all l*e.* troubles
camo from sick Kidneys Sick Kidneys cannot do their work ot straining the Impurities out ot thc blood,
and tho result is sickness, depression
and lassitude all over tho body. Dodd's
Kidney Pills cured the KldneyE; the
purllied blood did the rest.

Discovered Ancient Lamps
While dismantling an old palace
nenr the citadel, '.n Cairo, workmen
discovered a large ccu!ptoL*ed cr.so,
whicli contained real treasure, consisting of old Arabian manuscripts,
magnificent silver and bronze mosque
lamps, cups and carpets made evidently during the aiuio of tlie Arabic
apogoo.
Boats of Ana.ii Made Without Metal
Without nails, screws or holts, the
lugetiiotta natives ot Anam, a country
lying south of China within the
French protectorate, are able to .mild
strong, light boats, some of them of
large size, containing no metal of
any hind. These sampans, as the na-
ttvo bout* r.re eal'.ed, are made of
five plaults, joined together without
curving or the tiB3 of ribs from one
end to the other. The planks used
are pierces at intervals of about eight
Inches nt points directly opposite
each other. These perforations form
mortises in the shape ot double eyelets, through which rattan ropes are
passed, tightly binding them together.
The jji'tit. are calked with vegetable
fibre, ar.d over these points are laid
short lengths of board, lapping over
one another. These act as stiffeners,
strongly reinforcing lhe boat from
end to end and mulling It watertight.

and tlie cyanide process of gold extraction. It would seem from this
that tho time lias arrived for safety

I hope you will use my name wherever you like so that if there are any others

Restores Wasted Nerves
Few people realize what an important part the nerves play in the condition of the
health, and many doctors feel helpless when the nerves go wrong because they do not
understand diseases of the nerves or their treatment.
If you read the letters which appear in this paper almost daily from people who
have been rescued from discouraging and distressing nervous diseases by use ol Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food, you will soon believe in the efficiency of this treatment.
When headaches, sleeplessness, irritability and nervousness make your life miser-
able, be warned of the approach of nervous prostration, paralysis and locomotor ataxia,
and restore the feeble, starved nerves by using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. No treatment
is so certain to benefit you. 50 cents a box, 6 for $2.50. All dealers or Edmanson.

SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1914.
No Discrimination.
Several of our subscribers are continually questioning
us as to the reason why the Islander remains silent con-
ccnirig the movements of the U. M. W. of A., the going and
coming of the local officials, their intentions and efforts
towards a settlement. Some time ago we came to the con
elusion that, in so far as this district is concerned, the U. M
W. of A. received more consideration and publicity from the
public than they deserved, and the time has come to call a
halt. There is no need of arguing-the so-called holiday any
further, it is a thing of the past. In the event a few men
living on acreage down the Royston Road, clearing land and
improving their property, wishes to continue the holiday as
regards digging coal concerns their daily life and receive the
weekly strike pay, that is their business. To this the miners
of the district have no objection so long as law and order is
maintained.
Rumours are continuously afloat on the street that the
officials of the U. M. W. of A. are looking for a soft place to
fall down on. That may be the case. If they had been wise
to their own interests they would have sought that twenty-
one months ago ; it has taken that length of time for them
to realize their position. It is even said that Sir Richard
McBride, who has done all in his power as the head of the
government towards effecting a settlement, at the request of
the officials of the U. M. W. of A. is interceding on their
behalf, and that the officials have notified the Premier that
they are willing to make an unconditional surrender provid
ing the management will refrain from discriminating against
any member of their organization. To this the operators
contend, and their contention is just, that they never at any
time discriminated against any man, and do not intend to
discriminate in the future. But it should be understood
that men applying for positions they are incapable of filling
the only result would be a refusal. On the other hand it is
impossible to discriminate against a man who is not already
an employee.
As stated previously there is no need for further comment. It is futile to dwell upon the subject any longer.
The Federal and Provincial Governments have done all that
lay in their power to bridge the difference that exists between
the U. M. W. of A. and the management of the mines on
this island; that difference in the last analysis is shall there
be recognition of the U. M. W. of A. with the check off or
no recognition.
Letting the Light in
Shops and businesses that are illuminated
by advertising have a vitality and efficiency not possessed by shops and businesses that drape their service and
activities with a pall of silence.
Everybody knows that it is in all ways good
to let much lijrlit into dwellings, factories,
shops and stables—into all places where life
is and where health and efficiency are desired.
We commend to the merchants of this community the advantages and good results of
persistent advertising in our columns, for
the public always goes where light is* the
public shuns dark places. Light means
welcome and confidence.
A WOED TO MERCHANTS
Advertising will go far towards retaining the
loyalty of old customers and winning you new
ones. Fifty-two advertisements in our columns
will prove an excellent salesman—one whose
yearly cost to you will be less than what you
are now paying to some salesman behind your
counter.
Shop Where Your are Invited to Shop
Keep Your Town Alive.
A town is very much like an individual. To be flour.
ishing.it must have energy and enterprise. The people in
a town should remember that the individual prosperity
depends to a large extent^upon tlie character of the place in
which their business is located. Every public measure should
be liberally supported by all, especially the business men.
At tlie present day there is as much competition between
towns as there is among persons and enterprises. A man
seeking a location will invariably select a town that is up to
the times, and is eagerly in favor of every modern improvement. A town in these modern times can't afford to be
peopled with old foggies or antediluvan fossils who are
continually kicking at every enterprise. To make a flourishing town you must believe in its future and work for it
encouraging every improvement. Make a special effort to
exhibit some evidence of improvement in your own work
and character. Help every worthy man, every enterprise,
and encourage every good man to locate in your town.
Neighbors and friends will follow his lifeless clay to the
silent city and lay them to rest among the flowers. An
obituary will be published in these columns telling what
kind father, a good neighbor and beloved citizen he was,
which the recording angel will overlook for charity's sake,
and in a very short time he will be forgotten.
Night Prowling.
There is no doubt but that a large per cent of the
degradation, disgrace, ruin and crime among the young
springs from the habit of night prowling, corner loafing and
kindred acts of both sexes in city, town and hamlet all over
this broad country. Any person who keeps his or her eyes
open knows this. Lots of boys and girls are out at night
and we all know that many influences for evil and none for
good surround them continually. A curfew restriction may
be derided as old fashioned and puritanical, but the fact
remains that there is vastly less night prowling in towns
that have a curfew ordinance and enforce it.
Hearing.
Stopped His Paper.
A few months ago a cranky sort of an old man came
into this office and stopped his paper because something in
it did not just suit his fancy. We have frequently met him
on the street since that time and it is amusing to note the
look of surprise on the old fellow's face that we are still in
existence regardless of the fact that he stopped his paper.
Some day—and it wont be long either—that old gentleman will turn up his toes.   His heart will be stilled forever.
The art of not hearing should be learned by all. There
are so many things that are painful to hear, very many of
which, if we heard, will disturb the temper, corrupt simplicity
and modesty, detract from contentment and happiness. If
some person falls into a violent passion, and calls us all
manner of names, at the word we should shut our ears, and
hear no more. If in a quiet voyage of life we find ourselves
caught in one of those domestic whirlwinds of scolding, we
should shut our ears as a sailor would furl his sail and make
all tight, scud before the gale. If a hot, restless person
begins to inflame our feelings we should consider what a
mischief the fiery sparks may do in our magazine below,
where our temper is kept, and instantly close the door. If
all the things said of one by heedless or ill-natured idlers
were brought home to him, he would be a mere walking pin
cushion, stuck full of sharp remarks. If we would be happy,
when among good people we should open our ears; when
among bad people, shut them. It is not worth while to hear
what our neighbours say about our children, what our rivals
say about our business, our dress or our kin.

Queen over a small kingdom, if she
is conscientious she knows no leisure;
yet that kingdom exists for no end

ot the whole affair may be doubted.

Th. 'Movie.' Making for Temperanc*
Thos. who have hastily assumed
th. increasing an l multiplying moving
picture taifo'res to be dens of poisoned needle Iniquity wtll do well to reconsider their Judgment, ln some
places those establishments are accounted active and efficient agencies
for righteousness, and It is authorl*
tlavely declared tbat tbelr Influence
for good on public morals Is plainly
perceptible.
In Manchester, Kngland, tor . example, a city magistrate Is reported
as saying that tho "movies" arc niglit-
Iv keeping thousands of men out of
d'riktng places, with the result that
the drinking habits of the cily are
showing a marked improvement. Tlie
'movies" remain open until nbout tbe
timo set for the closing of bars, so
that there is little if any opportunity
for men to get drunk after leaving the
former: and small as the admission
fee to the shows is few seem willing
to forfeit even a fraction ot lt by
leaving before the last film Is reeled
off. Therefore the great majority ot
those wbo go to tbe "movies" are thu*.
practically kept from going to di inking places.
This result Is not at all surprising,
and it is gratifying. Perhaps, loo, it
may convey a profitable suggestion to
those who ore working to abate the
evils of temperance. It Is a truism
that men aud women, too, require entertainment nnd social diversion. Too
often tlie saloon has been the only
"poor man's club." If lt is now largely replaced by the "poor man's
theatre" the gain will be groat.—New

To Preserve Wild Flowers
When you come in from woods and
field wltb your arms fill, of wild flowers theso days you nro sometimes
dismayed at tlie wilted condition of
your po3ies and fearful lest you may
have gathered tbem in vain. This
will not prove to be the case if you
will revive them In this manner:
Plunge tbem at onee Into a bucket
of water as bot os can be borne by
the.baud, if tlio stems are ot the
wiry variety the water may be almost boiling. Take great care lhat.
the flowers do not get submerged,
but put the steins In up to two-
thirds of their Ungttl. Let them remain In this bucko; until the wnter
cools, then take them out nnd nr-
ronge them in vases of cold woter
in your Usual way. remembering to
put a big pinch of salt into each vase
or jar. ■
Never crowd your stems whon arranging flowers, but make loose effects, which will keep the flowers
mucr longer and moreover ore far
more artistic in arrangement. Never
put flowers in to stand up straight,
which Is stiff and unattractive. Make
the blossoms and foliage spray out
gracefully in an unstudied way. In a
deep jar they will only do Ihls by
being kept near the top. Tills can be
accomplished by <l opping littlo wads
of tissue paper in tbe water lo give
the stems -something to rest tn.

RETAIN FREEDOM
Germany's Vexed Question In East
Africa Under Review
A white paper dealing with the
vexed question o: "serfdom" In German East Africa has been drawn up
by the governor of the protectorate ln
reply to a Reichstag resolution on desiring the abolition of serfdom by
January 1.1920. It has been the subject of much criticism ln the budget
committee from Socialist and Centre
party deputies. It says that lt would
be a highly dangerous experiment to
abolish the serfdom by a fixed date.
The colonial secretary, Dr. Solf, fully
agreed with this view,"and waa supported by tha National Liberals. The
resolution Is extremely unlikely to
take effect.
According to the German law,
every native born after December,
1905, la tree. The mild "serfdom"
now existing In East Africa Is a survival of tribal warfare and of the
Arab conquests. In the days ot tho
prosperous slave trade centred In
Zanzibar the prisoners of war were
sold to dealers and carried out of the
country, but now that the trade has
languished with the establishment of
European rule the serfs remain anl
work in the country until they can
purchase their freedom.
There are estimated to be at present about 185,000 serfs ln German
East Africa. Their numbers are rap-
Idly dwindling and in fifteen years'
time "serfdom" will, lt ls estimated,
be extinct.
GOVERNMENT  TO  ACT
ago.
1 believe I am correct in st.-.ting
that such classes, although now becoming common, wero never taken up
as a civic duty Instead of a phllan-
throplcal task until Calgary entered
the field, At somo point.. English
classes for foreigners bad been started ns part of religious schemes, but
never apparently by any city itself.
Tlie classes (which are held at night
and are Intended for adults, not
children) are conducted by the city
nf Calgary as a branch of its very
liberal policy of technical education,
ami for administrative purposes come
nnder the direction of the superln-
t.ndent of technical education, Mr.
T.. B. Kidncr. At the beginning of the
first season, fwo classes were held;
■now. there are eleven classes, with
nine Instructors, the attendance at
which during the seaiion just closed
was no less than 407.
The classes are In Ave groups—
firstly, tor beginners, consisting of
those who have been In tho country
tinder six months; secondly, for Intermediate students, who have been In
the country less than ono year; third
and fourth, r.dvnnced students; and
lastly, a mixed class of students at
various stages. The system used In
Imparting instruction Is tlie "Berltlz,"
which, besides being very suitable for
any person of even meagre education,
Is almost Indispensable (lacking the
use of Esperanto or some such mil*
versal medium of converse) In communicating wltll students of so" many
nationalities as this-—Scandinavians, i
Slavs, Teutons, Latin's, nnd so forth.
In the Berltlz system, no other lang-
iiagels used but that which is being
taught, und no translation Ib undertaken by tlie instructor. The speaking of English is the first effort and
then successively reading and writing. In the Intermediate group, interesting debates have been held and
the keenest interest hns been manifested In tbe discussion of such topics, as prohibition, women's suft'rnge
and the advantage or disadvantages
ot city life as compared with country
lire. That French. Dutch, German,
Danish, Swedish and Austrlans can
be brought to such perfection that
they can argue on controversial matters ln a language which until a few
months before had been unknown to
all of them Is, Incidentally, a great
achievement. In the advanced groups
ot the classes, a book on civics has
been stuaied, and the students have
acquired an Introduction to a knowledge of the government of the city,
tbe province ot Alberta, the Dominion
of Canada, and the British empire;
until, as one student volunteered,
from being unacquainted with Eng*
lish they had in a year been advanced
to being able to read newspapers and
to take Interest ln all political Issues,
from the tariff question to the local
market problem.
The closing exercises were attended by a large number of people—the
students themselves, tbe friends they
had brought with them and wbo, not

made ln carload lots, must be forwarded to Regina during June, and
tbe commodity wlll be placed on the
market tree of charge to the farmer,
who wlll, however, have to meet all
expenses Incidental to the shipment,
local freight rates, and also grading.
Among the .deductions will be the
cost of twine and sacks.
The department has decided to embark on this new policy In order to
demonstrate the advantages to be derived from tha production of the
choicest quality of wool and from the
marketing of wool In bulk, and also
to encourage sheep-growing among
grain farmers. During tho winter
months an exhaustive inquiry was In
stltuted   into tho   condition    of the
RADIUM CURT  ABANDONED
Hop.  of  Curing  Cancer  by   Radium
, Cure la Given up by
Experts
All hope of curing cancer by radium has been abandoned by some of
the foremost surgeons and research
workers of the country wbo declared
at a recent meeting ot the American
Society for the Control or Cancer,
that the failures cf radiui*. outnumbered the cures 100 to 1.
That nothing Is of avail against
the most dreaded disease, but the
speedy use of the knife, waa the opinion advanced by Dr. William Mayo of
Rochester, Minn. Operation is tbe
only cure, but radium or ray treatment ls ln order as a temporary palla-
tlve, where operation is impossible,
according to Dr. Wood, ■'."rector of
Cancer research at Columbia university. Failures fror.i radium out-|
numbered the cures 100 to 1, he said.
Another generation will be required
to furnish knowledge ot the real
cause and actual nature of cancer, he
said. Exporlmenta for 35 entries
show that heredity plays a small part,
If any at all, In Its appearance.
No Progress and Little Hop.
It was expected that tbe members
would have something hopeful to re
port on the Investigation. Tbey admitted no progress and held ont little
hope. They united iu saying that
they dlacovered neither tlie cause nor
the nature of cancer. Then they
proved by statistics tbat cancer Is on
the Increase.
That a change In the habits and
customs may reduce tie disease to
some extent, wsb a ray of hope held
out by Mr. Mayo, who also sold any
cancer could be cured if operated upon in its early stages.
"If we could only tell how to avoid
It I would be glad, because I am
frank to admit that wc do not know,"
he declared. He said the statement
that the use ot meat was one of the
habits to be avoided In connection
with cancer was wrongly attributed
to him.
A Hay of Hope
The only optlmlBtlc note at the
meeting was struck by J. Collins
Warren, chairman of the Harvard
Cancer Commission, who after reviewing Its work, stated that the
proipects for progress in fighting cancer had never seemed so bright as
now.
Immediate discovery of the cause
of cancer could scarcely be expected,
but scientific commission and research work had entered upon a Hold
where progress was sure, though
slow, be declared.
LIKES TO BE BUILT
THE    CONSTRUCTION    PROGRAM
OF   THREE   TRANSCONTINENTAL  RAILWAYS
Work Mapped Cut Shows That Many
Miles of New Branch Line. Will be
Constructed—Mar.y Miles of^New
Territory to bs Served
This year's program of railway
construction work In Manitoba, Alberta ant! Saskatchewan has now
I een definitely decided on. Tbe Canadian Pacific Railway grading is being done on the 15 mile extension ot
tho Moose Jaw southwest branch beyond Expanse. Steel will be laid on
this In 1914. Tbe CPU. are no?
calling for tenders for tho grading
of 25 inlles which'Is a further extension of the line from Sterling Eost,
which when completed will mean
that tho road projects 75 inlles oast
from Sterling, Sask., aud within 11
miles of the Wayburn west lino. Steel
however, may not be laid this year.
This Is the C.P.R.'s second alternative route from Winnipeg to Van-:
couver via the Crow's Nest Pas3 and
the Kettle Valley route. I'ue C.P.R.
will do grading operations as follows: 72 miles on tbe Montlor-Ke--
robert line, 25 miles Suftleld south
westerly; 87 miles on the line running west of Weyburn, 25 .niles on a
line running north westerly from Coronation and 126 miles on thc line
from Bassauu easterly. The total
lines under construction In Alber'.a
Is 20G, in Saskatchewan River extending from and laying steel on the
Exponse line, 15 mllro.
Grand Trunk Pacific—The G.T.P.
operations will be largely confined to
the branch Intp Prince Albert from
Young, Sask., ami the track laying o,i
the Brandon branch in Manitoba. The
main line ln British Columbia will be
completed.
Canadian Northern Railway—Construction work will be done on the
Peace River Hue from Onoway on
the main line north westerly. Tliere
Is also a line dn the north .de ot tbe
Saskatchewan river extending from
Oliver to meet thc branch running
west from North Battleford. Work
will be in progress on tb. Calgary-
Lethbrldge l-j-iuch and on the Elrose
to Alsask branch and Gravelburg-
Swift Current line. There is also the
extension of the Thunder Hill branch
and the branch from Wroxton lo
Yorkton.
COAST   DEFENCE TRAINS I
French Have Designed Moveable
Forts for Protection of Long
Coast Line
An nitiro' coast-defence battery
mounted'on railway trucks is thc
answer of French military authorities
to the question of how to secure positive defense over long coast lines
with economy. The advantiges claimed for these mobile batteries are tho
economy in the preparation for tb?
defence of ony place, as the batteries
on wheels cost less than permanent
fixed batteries and can be sent to
threatened points from places *i here
they are not needed, the only expense
being for laying the rails. Then, too,
no coast-defence plans can be sold to
the enemy, no ohotographs, o.* drawings stolen, for no permanent works
indicate whero the salient polnt3 or
this defenco :.re located. No special
roads need be -laid, for military railways can be used in time of peace for
commercial purposes, and In war
time, peaceful roads utHizci' for war
purposes. The guns so fnr manufactured for this work arc nf howitzer
pattern, ond In 7.87-ln., 6-ln.. and 4.7
In sizes. They nre protected by tur
rets, and lhe ammunition cars are armored. An Interesting feature ofo.ie

Resultc at Experimental Farms
For twenty-six years the Dominion
Experimental farms have been experimenting with grain crops at the various farms und stations distributed
over Canada, trying to learn which
varieties give best results in tho different provinces. Not only have the
best known sorts produced at other
places been grown side by side, but
a', the Central farm at Ottawa new
varieties have been bred, and wheuj
found desirable, perpetuate! and distributed lo growerr.
For the Information of the Canadian farmer thc more important results of thc season ot 1913 at the different farms have been put together
in summarized form and Issued In
Bulletin No. 4. Tliere are included in
this some recommendations as to varieties to grow, nnd method of production lo follow that should prove of
great service to growers In all parts
of Canada
Referring to "Marquis" wheat
whicli was bred at Ottawa, the bulletin says, "Marquis produces very
large crops, has usually good straw,
and is morb resistant to rust thnn
most of the common varieties." A
large edition* of this bulletin has been
printed so that all who desire copies
may secure them by applying to the
Publications branch, Department of
Agriculture at Ottawa.
Mathematical Genius at Cambridge
Cambridge Is about ti receive a
model student. He Is Mr. Ramnnii-
jam, an Indian mathematical genius,
discovered by the Indian government.
Ramanujam, although a genius,
lacks training and most of his solutions are reached by a flash of Inspiration. He cannot demonstrate
tclenllfically how he obtained them.
He will not read for a degree, as
his general education Is said to be
weak, and it is desired that he
should devote all his time to tho development of his wonderful gifts. He
will enter the university as an advanced student, and remain there for
two years.
Limit Bag of Wild Ducks to 200 Birds
To limit the bag of wild ducks in
one season to 200 birds was the decision arrived at by tbe fish and game
committee of the Ontario legislature
In regard to the bill of Dr. Anderson
(South Essex), who sought to limit
the number to 100. At tho same
time, Hon. J. O. Resume, who presided, said he would apply to the federal government to prohibit tbe export of wild fowl out of the province. Dr. A-derson declared the intention of hla bill was to stop pothunters who go in for the wholesale
slaughter of the wild duck on trc St.
Clair flats and at Rondeau park on
Lake Erie.
ARE THE PRAIRIES PERMANENT?
in
Suez Canal Deecpr
Announcement has just been made
that the deepening ot the Suez canal
has been completed, and the waterway now has n depth of 29 feet for
its entire length. Originally lt was
planned to give tho canal :. depth of
26,4 feet, and for years after it
was completed this t'epth was maintained. Increase in the size ot ves-
sols routed through this short cut to
the Orient made it necessary to deepen thc cut, and dredging operations
conducted in the early eighties added
one foot to the depth. Six years ago
the new finished undertaking was
begun, and throughout thc 100 miles
of navigation from Port Said lo Suez
dredges have removed silt and sand,
deepening the waterway to 29 fe"t
Already proposals are being consider
ed for a further dredging, which will
make the minimum depth thirty
feet. The Panama c.uial, while but
fifty miles long, cost nearly J300.000,*
000, as compared with the Suez expenditure of $96,500,000 foi twice thc
distance. The Panama canal, however, Is 40 feet deep and .100 feet
wide, while its eastern rival is considerably narrower, only 200 to 265
feet in width, and ls a sea-level excavation mainly through sand.
REMOUNTS  FOR WAR  PURPOSES
the treaty was preserved without
change.
Great Britain advanced the suggestion that there be incorporated in the
terms of the treaty a provision similar to that contained in various commercial treaties by which the life of
the treaty continues until one year
after notification cf one or the other
of the contracting parties, that that
party desires tu terminate the agree-
men.
This proposition was not objectionable to this government, but the
necessity of sending the treaty to the
senate .' r ratification and the possible entanglements likely to arise in
the present stress of feeling over the
tolls question dictated the wisdom of
adhering to the old form, antl not
trying to attempt any new arrangement.
CROSS   ATLANTIC    IN    15 HOURS
Aviator. Dream of Making Trip in
Luxurious Aerial Pullman
The expressed opinion of Mr.
Claude Grahame Wiiite that in twenty year:, lt will be possible to cross
the Atlantic In fifteen hours, travelling in a luxurious aerial Pullman
with dining and sleeping facilities,
has been endorsed by several well-
known aviators.
Mr. C. B. Hucks, the flrst Englishman to loop the loop, I ow iver,
goes so far os to prophesy that this
milestone of progress in aeronautics
would bo pasBid within two years
from now. Ho pointed out, in an interview, that a speed ot 140 miles on
hour iir d already been attained and
recently a Gorman airman succeeded
in remaining In tho air for over sixteen hours, ufid that a flight when
sixteen persons were taken up was
rocently reported from St. Petersburg.
"Crossing the Atlantic." said Mr.
Hucks, "will be exactly like looping
the loop. First one mnn wlll do it,
then perhaps some months will
elapse before an attempt is made by
a second man, and when tho second
mnn has been successful others will
see that the feat is not the accomplishment of just one man, and a
whole procession will follow."
American Wants Seat Among Lords
There is more than a probability
that the question whether Lcrd Fairfax, as an American citizen, Is debarred from sitting In the house of
lords, will have to be decided shortly*
Lord Fairfax already more than
once has been a candidate for one of
the seats alloted in the house of lords
to peers of Scotland, and is again to
be a candidate at the next election,
which cannot be long delaye'd.
On this occasion lie likely will be
successful In taking the late Earl of
Leven's seat, but Fairfax's election
will not decide the question as to
whether ho li eligible to take his
seat, although ll will force the matter
to an issue.
Sign, of Their Disappearance
the We.t a. Growth of Trees
Is Encouraged
The dictionary defines a prairie as
"a le.'el or rolling tract zt Ireeless
land covered with coarse groBS,"
Strictly speaking, then, the prairies
no longer exist in Canada except locally, for there ore no longer any
large areas exempt from settlement
and the settlers throughout the west
have already beau supi- 1 by tbe
Dominion Fcieslry Branch with over
24,000,000 trees, all of which have
been planted aad Most of which are
growing up in the form of woodlots
and shelterbelts. So successful have
been these plantations and so great
has the demand for trees ga*own, that
the Indian Head Nursery Qtation,
which has a.i annual capacity ot approximately three million trees, can
no longer supply this demand and It
has been necessary to establish *■
branch nursery  at Saskatoon.
Tbe opinion was once wide-spread
that the prairies were naturally treeless cad many ingenious thejri i
were advanced to account for tials
treeleBsness. Ona was that thc soil
was too fine; a second that the soil
was all right, but that because of the
thick sod the tree seeds could nut
reach lt; another theory was that
there was Insufficient rainfall, old
still another that the dry winter
winds killed the buds and twigs. But
If any of these factors have been detrimental to tree-growth on the
prairies in the past, the Forestry
Branch has since Bucceedetl iu producing trees which are so adapted to
climatic conditions that growth Is as
sured, if the trees are given a proper
start.
Tho most probable cause cf the
treelessness of the prairies Is man,
not nature. Tlio fact that th, Indians long ago were in the habit of
setting flres to thu forests and grasslands In order to afford better grazing, and that In tlie fall, when these
flies were usually set, the prevailing
winds were westerly, seems to prove
thot from tho arid plains of Southern Alberla and the United States,
lhe area of treeless land was gradually extended by fire hundreds of miles
easterly. But iu Manitoba, since
these flres have ceased, the western
fringe of forest hue begun to recover
lost ground, nnd. allied by artificial
reforestation under the stimulus of
the Forestry Branch, tree-growth will
soon be as common on tlie prairies
as on thc farms of Eastern Canada.
New Scheme For Ranch on Land
North of Medicine Hat
Hon. Colonel Sam Hughes has
been empowered by the government
to lease to the National Livestock
Exchange, Limited, townships 20, 21
and 22, range 3, west of fourth Meridian, comprising 65,000 acres ot the
land lying sixty miles north of Medicine Hat and south, of tho Red Deer
river, for the purpose ot collecting
and providing thereon half-line cavalry remounts. Tho company will
pay on annual rental of two cents per
acre for the land. The terms *>:" this
lease are that the company shall produce lialfbred dams remounts to the
number of uot less than 1,500 each
year after 1916. The government of
Canada Is to have the horses raised
by the exchange and the company
must hold and mature until th i age
of three and a half years all horses
whicli the minister of militia may desire for military* purposes. The prlci
to be paid by the minister Is not to
exceed the substantial sum of $251)
per head.
It ls further agreed that the war
office of Great Britain may hav$ preemption rights at the same price and
terms in respect to such horses as
remain after the minister has made
his choice. Thc exchange list have
the right, hovever, li retain fifty fillies and fifty colts each year for
breeding purposes.
Colonel Hughes Bubmlts that the
lease will he In the Interest, of the
public, as It is desired that every
encouragement should he given for
the production of horses for war purposes.
PARTY VISITS NEW  ISLAND
Herrings Thrown to the Gulls
Flocks of gulls from Ihe lake havo
been attracted by the fish thrown on
tlie nuisance ground at Port Arthur
and on a market garden nearby,
where tho owner had hauled a lot of
the flsh for fertilizer. So thick have
lhe birds been during the winter and
spring lhat the ground was almost
white with them while they fed upon
the lish. On account of the mild
weather last fall the piles of the
herring caught could r.ot be frozen
and wagor. loads had to bo hauled
to the nuisance ground to get them
away from the dock:; as the facilities
for salting them were Inadequate to
handle the heavy catch.
Find, it Mas. of Lava Covered With
Pumice Stone and White
Ash
The new island, whicli recently
sprung up near the llonln group off
Japan, has been visited by a party
from llio steamer Chefoo, who describe It as a mass ot ,ova covered
with pumice Btone antl white nsh. The
Chefoo locntca the Island lit latitude
north 21.17 degrees nnd longlludc
east 141.29 degrees. When the steam*
er approached tho Island nppenred
pure white with blockish cliffs rising
about 200 feet. For a radius of three
miles tbe sea was filled wilb Homing
pumice. The land pnrly found it PX'
ceedlngly dangerous to row near the
cliffs as ihey were constantly break
Ing away and falling Into thc sea to
Join the already great mass of pumice. Also, on account of the very
soft nature of the rurface, no attempt was made to journey Inland.
The main creater was located to the
southwest, being a quarter of a mile
wide, lt emitted enormous clouds of
block smoke, obscuring the sun. At
night there was n red glow and occasional tongues ot flames. On the
eastern side a small crut.v, which
discharged poisonous fumes, made an
approach impossible. The water
nbout  was  warm.
The captain of the Chefoo thinks
the whole island will gradually cliff
off until only the solid central moss
of lava remains.
AN   |NTER"**R0VI,1CIAL   HIGHWAY
FRO*  THE  ATLANTIC TO
THC  PACIFIC COAST
Scheme Is Now Well Launched and i
Recei.ing Considerable Attent.cn
by Varicus Associations East and
West Throughout th; Dominion.
An Intef-prpvincial highway, running from the Atlantic to tbe Pacific
coast, is a schema tbat is receiving
considerable attention at tbe present
time. Various associations have beea
organized with a view to bringing
about tiie construction oi this route,
and Its ultimate success now seems
certain. This scheme was lirst mooted three or four years ago, and lho
possibilities were ■ liown by the trip
undertaken by ll. J. Wilby. Tbe outcome of thc agitation in favor of this
scheme was the organization ot wuat
bus become known as llie Dominion
Highways association. This organization lias yone to considerable expense in order io educate the people
of Canada tu lhe Immense value of
such an  Inter-provincial route.
Aa with all big schemes, public
opinion moves but slowly, and where
the scheme deserve merit, i. usually
gets it—it Is only :'. question of time.
The early endeavors of Ihe Dominion
Highways Associatio:: antl various
other bodies did not readily succeed,
but the weight ot their arguments is
now being fell. Motorists especially
are acknowledging tbe merits of tb-'
proposal,.and this fact was no more
clearly shown than when tbe Saskatchewan Motor League receutly organized at Regina, look up as one ot Its
flrst subjects, the proposal I > have an
Interprovluclal highway. The scheme
was readily endorsed, and the views
of-tlil8 new league, which is representative of Saskatchewan, will he
placed before the provincial govern*
ment. There sceris little doubt but
that the Saskatchewan government
will deal with the matter r.t Ub next
session at Reglna, as well as other
provincial governments. Tbe federal
government already lias tbe matter
In ham'.
The scheme In general provides for
a road from coast to coast, travelling
as near as possible In a straight line.
It ls not Intended to havo any wide
deviations in order to pass through
any/particular city, tho Idea being to
build roads from thc various en1.*'.
within reasonable distance to the in-
t-rprovlncial road.
The various motor leagues of Canada will co-oforc.te with tbe lea-sues
In the Uulted States, as it will likely be ne-.css.iry for the route to run
south Into tbe States before reaching
Lake Superior, and again cross into
Canada either at Detroit or Port
Turon, from tbere continuing in as
direct a Hue ao possible to" the eastern terminus on the Atlantic ocean.
The route follow, d by Mr. Wilby la
his pioneer trip required that he ship
Ills automobile from Sault Ste. Marlt
t_ Fort William, and from tliere continue by road.
The Saskatchewan end of ■ thi
scheme was fully discussed at the recent Motor League convent! in at Regina. One feature which has now
been definitely decided Is that the)
provincial government, the city of Regina and the cily of Moose Jaw will
cooperate in pulling thi highway between Reglna and Moose Jaw in flrst
class condition, and it Is understood
otber niunicipaliibs will also co-oper-
aie with the provincial government
In improving t lio inlerprovlncla! road
throughout Saskatchewan. It It
claimed that tlie tourist traffic over
the road would be considerable. "
The Saskatchewan portion of thi
Intel-provincial road will piobably be'
a continuation ot the rood which the
Dominion government have under
consideratie... From the eastern
boundary of tha provlnc: to 8w!ft
Current the road Is already in fairly good condition, considerable work
having been dono oi. it by both the
municipal and provincial authorities.
Ilepnirs will have to be lnadj at a few
.points In the eastern section of the
rood. Tills rood In a general way will
parallel the main llni ef the Canadian Pnci.l*. Railway. Ihe road between Reglna antl Moose Jaw will bo
considerable Improved as stated
above, by llie provincial govemnent,
and the cities of ltc**lna nnd Moose
Jaw.
From Swift Current to the Alberla
boundary lhe road as outlined, !h only
problematical, as a (treat deal of .vork
and expense will he Involved in put-
tlna It In good condition.
Not only is II expeited that thi
motor tourists will nso this Inter*
provincial road to a considerable client, but it Is expected that truck
fanning  will also lie encnurugic.
