COMMISSIONERS
HAVE BUSY TIME
Licence Commissioners Discuss
New Provincial Liquor Law
Re Early Closing
The Licencing Board recently
appointed by the provincial government held their first meeting
on Wednesday evening in the
council chambers. There were
present Mayor Campbell, Commissioners MacDonald and Maxwell. The city clerk read the
minutes of the last regular and
special meetings which were on
motion adopted as read.
The first communication read
was an application from H. B.
Conrod, for a bartender's licence.
Joseph Walker, proprietor of the
New England Hotel, supported
the application by saying that the
applicant had been a bartender at
Vancouver for a number of years
and he had never seen Conrod
under the influence of liquor.
On motion his application was
granted.
The city clerk pointed out that
an application for a temporary
permit had been granted by the
last licencing board to Robert
McNeil, of the Vendome Hotel,
and that such permit had expired
the permit having been granted
on the application for a transfer
from R. S. Robertsofi to Robert
McNeil. The city clerk further
stated that the application for a
transfer had been advertised in
the papers, but he had received
no written application for the
transfer of the Vendome licence,
which he should have received
fourteen clear days previous to j
this meeting.
Commissioner MacDonald said
that as Robertson's written application for a transfer to McNeil
had not been handed in at this
meeting, and his permit having
expired, the Vendome bar could
be closed up.
The mayor thought that the
Vendome licence would not be
legal to be open for business the
following day, and there must be
some misunderstanding.
It was suggested that Constable
Gray be sent to interview the
Vendome people and ascertain
the trouble, the Board not wishing to take any advantage.
In the meantime Commissioner
MacDonald asked if all the bartenders in town had a licence.
It was explained that the Cumberland Hotel bar men had no
licence, Com. MacDonald suggested that hotel licences be can-
■ celled if the law regarding bartenders' licences be not fulfilled.
It was finally decided after
considerable discussion that the
bartenders of the Cumberland
Hotel must secure licences, or the
proprietor would lose his hotel
license.
The mayor remarked that when
these hotel men get the chance
to evade the law they usually
take advantage of it.
At this stage of the meeting
Robert McNeil appeared. The
mayor explained to him that his
temporary permit had expired
and no application had been made
for renewal.
McNeil said it was an oversight
on his part and he would now
make application that the temporary permit be extended until
April 1st. Application granted.
The mayor wanted to know if
Licence Inspector Gray had any
report to make, who replied that
he no report to make.
Com. MacDonald pointed out
that the curtains at the bar windows were not drawn back a
REGISTER AT THE
ISLANDER OFFICE
An effort is being made to have
all those who are qualified to vote
registered on the new provincial
lists which are now in course of
preparation. An entirely new
register is being printed so that
those who had votes in the last
provincial election Jwill have to
again subscribe to their qualifications, as well as those who are
new comers to the province and
whose names have not yet appeared on the voters' list. To expedite the task of registration as
far as possible 'The Islander' will
take the names of those who wish
to be put on the list. The necessary forms may be signed in this
office from now until April 7th,
at any time during the business
day. Those whose names are on
the new register, provided they
are not struck off at the revision,
will be qualified to vote at the
next Provincial and Dominion
elections.

The first meeting of the class

sufficient distance during prohibited hours. He then made a
motion that the police commissioners be asked to see that the
police have the new provincial
law with regard to the closing of
barrooms carried into effect.
This caused considerable discus
sion as to city by-laws and provincial laws.
Com. MacDonald said the provincial law comes first.
The mayor also thought that
they must carry out the provincial law.
Com. Maxwell said that Chief
Stephenson was authorized by the
last licencing board to close up
any hotel that he thought required closing.
The mayor said that Chief Stephenson may have been so instructed by the last board but not
by this one; but it is no use having laws unless they are enforced.
Com. MacDonald stated that
Chief Stephenson had requested
permission from the licensing
board before closing saloons and
had carried out the duties of his
office only. There are some hotel
men who would lose their licence
for supplying intoxicated men
with liquor if the police were on
the alert as they should be.
Com. Maxwell said Chief Stephenson closed the hotel barsfor
six or seven weeks without authority.
Com. MacDonald: Whatever
Chief Stephenson did he always
asked permission first.
Com. Maxwell said he would
second the motion providing that
the mover would amend his
motion to read "that the provincial law be enforced on April 1st.
Com. MacDonald consented
after a little hesitation. Motion
then carried.
The proprietor of the New
England Hotel wanted to know I
if he could clean up his barroom
on Sundays.
He was advised that he must
keep out of his barroom during
prohibited hours.
Com. MacDonald suggested
that the barrooms keep open five
days a week, and clean up on
Saturdays, and thought the time
was not very far distant when
there would be no back door to
the bars.   Meeting adjourned.
The  preliminary  hearing   of
Henry Wagner and William Julian, the two men arrested for the
murder of Constable Henry Westaway at Union Bay on the morning of March 4th, took place on
Tuesday afternoon at the provincial court house, Wesley Willard
and Joseph Shaw, J's.P., presiding.   The court house was crowded with spectators anxious to hear
the  evidence  as  given by the
witnesses.     Promptly   at   two
o'clock, the appointed time  for
the hearing,  the two prisoners
were escorted into the courtroom
with a constable on either side of
them.   The accused were ordered
to stand up, and W. Willard, J.P
read ou} the charge,  which was
as  follows:   "For  that Henry
Wagner and William Julian on the
4th day of March, 1913, at Union
Bay  in the Province of British
Columbia, unlawfully and feloniously  did kill and murder one
Henry Westaway."
Chief Constable David Stephenson then called as his first
witness Geo. K. MacNaughton,
M.D., who, after being sworn,
said: On the morning of March
4th had been called to Union Bay
to attend an injured man; upon
his arrival at Fraser & Bishop's
store; found a man lying on the
floor handcuffed, with several
scalp wounds,- whom he afterwards found out to be the burglar
Henry Wagner. He then directed
his attention to another man lying
on the floor whom he found to be
pulseless, and had been dead for
some time, and whom he afterwards found to be Constable
Westaway. He gave evidence of
having performed an autopsy on
the body and said that death
might have been caused by a bullet from a .44 calibre Colts.
George Norris Bertram, sworn,
said: he was a transit man, and
certified to a plan he had made of
the postofficeand Fraser & Bishop
store, where the tragedy had
taken place.
The evidence given by Donald
G. Ross was similar to that given
at the inquest. He said how the
deceased and himself had been
detailed by the Chief to watch the
postofflce and store at Union Bay;
they had entered the postofflce a
little after midnight on the morn
ing of March 4th, and hearing a
noise flashed his light down the
passageway towards the rear end
of the store adjoining, when he
saw the burglar, Wagner, in a
kneeling position with a revolver
in his hand, and the accused
Julian standing and leaning over
him; he turned off his light and
rushed towards the burglars when
he saw the flash and heard
the report of a shot. Immediately
after Constkble Westaway said,
"I am shot; have you got him?"
Then the struggle for life ensued
which resulted in the arrest of
Wagner, the prisoner Julian evidently having made his escape at
that time through a window in
the rear of the store.
Constable James F. McKenzie,
sworn, said he had heard someone calling for help at about 12.30
in the morning in question while
he was standing on the wharf at
Union Bay; he immediately went
to the assistance and found Cons
Ross with the burglar handcuffed,
and Cons. Westaway lying dead
on the floor near the front door
of the store; he spoke of search-
It should not be necessary to
draw attention to the advisability
of all who are qualified  having
their names placed on the  new
voters' lists  which are^ now in
course of preparation.    Yet it is
remarkable how  many  people
through sheer carelessness, find
themselves ineligible to vote when
an election comes around.   Even
now  although  the public have
been warned time and again that
new  lists  are  being   prepared
there are some who consider that
because they had votes at the last
Provincial and Dominion elections
their names will duly appear on
the  new  register without any
effort on their part.     This is a
very mistaken idea, for it should
be remembered that the old lists
have  been  entirely    cancelled.
Only those who sign the registration forms which are now in circulation will be able to vote when
a Federal or Provincial election
is held.   There is no qualification
such as being a property holder,
which in the case of the municipal  voters' list, places a person
automatically on the roll.   Every
person must sign the registration
form subscribing to the facts that
he is a British subject and  has
had six months' residence in the
province.    This is a duty which
we urge all to remember as  the
lists will close on April 7.

on the Way.
Provincial Constable Stephenson gave all the hotels notice yesterday that they must at once
conform with the new provincial
law re liquor licences. Bars must
close at 11 p.m. and 10 p.m. on
Saturday nights. Last night the
bars shut up like a clam at 11.
ing the prisoner \<nd store anr1
found the revolver on the flooi
and on the prisoner a flash light,
battery, some skeleton keys and
a quantity of .44 cartridges, all
of which were produced in court.
John S. Bannerman testified to
having taken photographs of th.
scene of the tragedy, which were
produced in court.
John Reid, an employee of Fraser & Bishop's store, sworn, said
that on the evening of the 3rd
inst. he had locked the store up
for the night and securely fastened the windows. On his arrival
on the morning of the 4th inst. he
found the store in a very disorderly condition.
Chief Constable Stephenson,
the next witness, gave evidence
to the effect of having gone to
Union Bay in answer to a phone
message, and made statements
similar to the previous witnesses.
He also produced a statement
signed by the accused William
Julian, which stated that he had
been enticed by Wagner into the
robbery and giving a brief history of their connections.
Cons. George Hannay, sworn,
said: while at Nanaimo he had
received instructions by wire
from Chief Stephenson to arrest
one William Julian, an accomplice
to the tragedy at Union Bay; he
at once proceeded to search for
the missing burglar and finally
located him at the north end of
Lasqueti Island and arrested him
and brought him to Cumberland.
Presiding Magistrate Willard
then asked the accused if they
had any statement to make.
Wagner said he had nothing to
say, while Julian said he did not
like the idea of being charged
with murder.
The magistrates, after summing up the evidence, sent the
prisoners up to stand trial at the
next court of competent jurisdiction.
Henry Wagner was   taken   to
Nanaimo and William Julian   lo
Victoria on Thursday  morning,
in charge of the provincial police

ago. The steamer is due to arrive
to-morrow, and will immedi il ■'.
commence to load 4000 tons ol
coal. It is gratifying to know
that the Canadian Collieries are
making such rapid strides towards redeeming the trade losl
iy the holiday: With our lasl

arrival of the Australian liner
iealandia for 2500 tons of hunker
coal. It is further pleasing to
ncntion (hat we have heard from:

Bay for coal are the Blue Funnel
liners, the Weir line, Royal M ill

these steamers will arrive but we
understand they will be here al

quantities to load a steamer witl

Easton, In ;ove with Violet Brooke,
end blaming hlmsell Tor the situation
which had arisen through hla keeping
back the note which he had so strangely found, had taken up the task nf
solving tlie mystery ol Eda Brooke's
death. it was a task which might
lead him he knew not whither: but he
did not hesitate. Ii wns not his na-
. lure tn do so, once ills mind was made
up. and he lost no time in selling to
work.
Ills tlrst step was In have a lung interview Willi Dr. Arnold, who had
certified io tne cause of Eda Brooke's
death.
This at least made one point clear.
The old doctor was absolutely firm pn
that. There was not, ihere had
neter been, tliere could not he, he
declared, any question about it. 'Edit
Brooke had died from suffocation
caused by the gas escaping from the
open burner.
The old doctor hati even been
Slightly offended at Easton's persistence in tines:inning him on the subject
and the Major had withdrawn at
length quite satisfied.
He next tried the little maid.
A very short conversation convinced
him that site knew no more of tlie
events of that fatal evening than she
had already told.
There had been no one, it was certain, hut the two sisters in the flat
that night, when they hnd retired to
rest, and Violet Brooke, he could not
doubt, hnd heard nor seen nothing unusual till she had awakened frightened
from her sleep.
There remained merely tho fact that
the door of the flat, had been unfastened when Easton had made his way
upstairs from the street, but that
might simply mean that the sisters
had been careless (Violet Brooke did
not remember particularly closing the
door on entering].
Setting that aside, there was no sign
of the Intruder, if intruder there had
lieen, but the letter which was now
causing  so  much  doubt.
The affair waB dark, Easton could
but confess, as he reviewed the situation, and lie could not help feeling
thnt It was further complicated by
Violet's strange manner and sudden
fainting fit after his production of the
letter and his questions, and also by
Itivlnglon's visit to the flat alter her
denial of any acquaintance with the
man.
Ye',. What ever mystery lay at ihe
bottom of all tills, Easton felt himself
sure nf the girl who had so queerly
come Into his life, There was nothing in it -ill that she could he
ashamed of, he felt assured; and, putting all doubts aside, he gave himself
up boldly to the task he had undertaken.
Having failed In the first steps he
had essayed, he turned his attention
In other directions.
It seemed certain that tlie letter—if
tt had not lieen written by Eda Brooke
—was the work of some one who had
known tlie two sisters well. Could
he, having tailed so far, get from Violet Brooke the names of those open to
suspicion, would she give him all the
assistance he felt she could afford in
his determination to solvo the mystery?
Without that nssislance he felt thai
his position would he delicate; and
the next evening he called on her
again.
To his disappointment she was not
at home, however.
The ilttle maid opened the doer of
the flat fnr him.

Advantages and Saving by Using
The Loading Platform
In rJti; writing we desire to put before our Western Farmers the
eavluf 'and advantage ot loading Brain dlrec'. on cars. Shipping grain
through an elevator, it matters no* whether n Government elevator or
one run by nn elevator company or individual owner, does not add
tbe least fraction of a cent to tbe value of he grain, nor does it give
the farmer any better chance of marketing it to advantage than when
loaded direct on cars. But loading direct .n cars cuts out In the first
place He elevator charge, which 1b usually laic. per bushel, say
J17.B3 on a thousand bushel car. The elavator dockage is nlso
saved- This may be worth more or less, depending partly on how dirty
ihe grain is, but mostly on tlie farmer's ability in holding his own
With *he elevator man taking it in. On the average the dockage
may bt considered worth 3n p>5r l.iishel to tha farmer, or say T30 per
car of i.000 bushels. When grain is loaded direct into ear over the
Loading Platform, the farmer knows, for stfe tbat It Is hla very own
grain that will he graded by the inspector, and that be will without
doubt receive the full and exact outturn of his car at whichever terminal Mevutor It is unloaded; for all grain "s unloaded from the cars
under government supcrintendnnee and weighed by properly riualtfled
government wrighmen under the rules an.1 supervision of the Dominion Government Bonn! of Grain CommisslorT-rs.
Of "o.irse, it makes no difference in nnr loading nf the farmers'
grain whether it has been shipped through nn elevator or over tho
Lortdinp Pla'form, but it can easllv he seen from what we have stated
above'vhere'he farmer's ndvnntagi lies, w^en It saves him around
$51 or moro on every car be ships.
We continue to act as tbe farmers* agen* In looking after and dls*
nctlnr of cnrlot shipments of wber-*. oats, barley and flax strictly on
a commission of 1 rent per bushel. We tre not connected with,
nor interested In any elevator enmnnnles -»• eleyntors. either local or.

Tlie poor baker for some reason appears to have been singled out for
some extraordinary punishments. It
is only within late years that there has
been rescinded in Turkey a law by
which the baker guilty of sbort-

his ear nailed to the doorpost.. Turkish officers of the law are notoriously
averse to giving themselves more
trouble than is absolutely necessary.
If the recalcitrant baker did not happen to be at home when they arrived
to administer punishment, they didn't
bother to call again, but Just, seized

airship that did everything but fly,
though he scld a dozen tickets—first

-made a shop producer, which was
guaranteed *o bring soothing slumber
to the user. Henry swanked like
anything thai insomnia was conquered, and he look It as a joke when tbe
only chap who tried It went to sleep
and never awoke.
Undeterred, an Odour Killer was his
next assault on fame; this would soften motor Trasrance, hush the bum of
month hung tame; but a public demonstration brought disaster in its
train, for the O.K. found its master
in a ripe and rampant drain, aud the

for anything I had frequent headaches, would be completely tired out
after the least exertion, and had little
or no appetite. A doctor wbo was
giving me'medicine finally told me he
feared I was going Into consumption,
which, of coi:rse made me very much
down-hearted. Aa the medicine I
was taking was not doing me any
good I decided to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and I Bhall ever feel grateful that I did so. My story may be
summed up ir..'the wordB "nine boxes
of the-Pills fully restored my hpalth,
—perhaps saved my life, and I am
now as strong and healthy as any
girl."

equally good results through a fair

The Honeymoon Club
Tlie Never Nag Society Is New
York's latest, matrimonial club. Its
founders are thirty-four couples who
have returned from honeymoons spent
in Bermuda, where the brides formulated the following confession of
faith:
We. the brides of Bermuda, bave
no use for tbe new woman who cannot
cook or sew. We believe a wife
should have her husband's breakfast
ready, no matter at what time be ls
obliged to rise.
We believe we should lie dressed
neatly by the time he is up, for it ls
hlB breakfast tlmo Impression of us
that he carries all day.
We believe the wife should greet
her httshant with a kisB wben be returns In th..1 evening, and not force
blm to take the lnlatlve.
We believe tho wife Bhould have
absolute charge of the household affairs.
We believe that she should keep
books accounting for every penny she
handles, but should bave for her private use any amounts she Is able to
save from    h?r    weekly    allowance.
We believe that husbands should
be encouraged to bring their bachelor
friends to their home—to make the

Not to be Imposed Upon
The organist of a   country church,
having fallen III just before a festival at the church, asked a friend of
his—an    accomplished    musician—to
play In his rtead.
The friend consented, and on the
festival day, chose the Hallelujah
Chorus, playing full chords where the
regular organist only played single
notes. Tha former, of course required far more wind.
Presently, In the middle of the piece
the wind gave out. The organist
waited a few moments; then finding it
did W come on again he went round
to the'blower. and found him just going home. ■• ,

CHAPTER VIII
Easton, in .eve with Violin Brooke,
stiti blaming himself for t!u> situation
which hail arisen through his keeping
luick tho nolo which he tail so strung'-
ly found, hail taken "i> the tusk ol
solving the mystery ot Ella Brooke's
death, lt wns u task which mlghl
lead him be know not whither; but he
did not hesitate. It was not his nn-
. lure to do so, once hiH mind was innde
up, and ho lost, no time in setting to
work.
His first flop wns to have u hint: Interview with Dr, Arnold, who had
certified lo 'n.: cause of Eda Brooke's
death.
This at least made one point clear.
The old doctor was absolutely firm on
that. There was not, there hnd
never lieen. there could not lie, he
declared, any question about It. *Etla
Brooke had died from suffocation
caused by the sas escaping from the
open burner.
The old doctor hnd even been
slightly offended at Easton's persistence in questioning him on tlie subject
and the Major had withdrawn at
length quite satisfied.
lie next tried the little maid.
A very short conversation convinced
him that she knew no more of tlie
events of that fatal evening than she
had already told.
There had been no one, it was certain, but the two sisters in the flat
that night when they had retired to
rest, and Violet Brooke, he eould not
doubt, had hoard nor seen nothing un-
UBtial till she had awakened frightened
from her sleep.
There remained merely the fact that
the door of the flat had lieen unfastened when Easton had made his way
upstairs from the street, hut that
might simply mean that the sisters
had been careless (Violet Brooke did
not remember particularly closing the
door on entering).
Setting that aside, there was no sign
of the intruder, if Intruder there had
been, but tlie letter which was now
causing  so  much  doubt.
The affair was dark, Kaston eould
but confess, aa he reviewed the situation, and he could not help feeling
that lt was further complicated by
Violet's strange manner nnd sudden
fainting fit after his production of the
letter und his question's, and also by
Rlvlngton's visit to the flal after her
denial of any acquaintance with the
man.
Vet,, whai ever mystery lay at the
bottom of all this, Easton felt himself
sure of the girl who had so queerly
come Into his lite. There was nothing In il -ill that she could he
ashamed of, he felt assured; and, putting all doubts aside, he gave himself
up boldly to the task he had undertaken .
Having failed In the flrsl slops he
had essayed, lie turned his attention
In other directions.
lt seemed certain Unit ihe letter—If
It bad not been written by Eda Brooke
—was tho work of some one who had
known tlie two sisters well. Could
he, having filled so far, got from Violet Brooke the names of those open to
suspicion, would she give him all the
assistance ho felt she could afford in
his determination lo solve tho mystery?
Without Unit assistance lie fell thai
his position would he delicate; and
the next evening he called on her
again.
To his disappointment she was not
at home, however.
The little maid opened the door of
the fiat Tor him.
Miss Violet is out,    sir,    she    said,

Advantages and Saving by Using
The Loading Platform
In .i',. writing we desire to put before our Western Farmers tha
savtuj; and advantage of loading grain direc* on cars. Shipping grain
through un elevator, it matters not whether a Government elevator or
one nu by an elevator company or Individual owner, does not add
the let.; fraction of a cent to the value of he grain, nor does it give
the farmer any better chance of marketing it to advantage than when
loaded direct on cars. But loading direct .n cars cuts out in the first
place iLe elevator charge, which is usually I'Jic, per bushel, say
$17.63 on a thousand bushel car. The elevator dockage is nlso
safed' rhls may be worth more or Ions, depending partly on how dirty
tl.p grain is, but mostly on the farmer's ability in holding h^s own
With 'he elevator man taking it In. On the average the dockage
may be considered worth Wc. p,ir bushel tn the farmer, or say $30 per
car of j.onn bushels, When grain is load id direct Into car over the
Loading Platform, the farmer know;, for sire that it is his very own
grain 'hat will he graded by the inspector, and that he will without
doubt receive the full and exact outturn of Ms car at whichever ter*
initial * levntor it Is unloaded; for all Train "s unloaded from the cars
under government snperlntendance and weighed by properly qualified
government weigh men under the rules nn.l rupervision of tbe Dominion Government Hoard of Grain Commissioners.
Of Ao,ir?e, it makes no difference in opr loading or the farmers*
grain whether it has been shipped through an elevator or over ths
r.ondlhg' Platform, but it enn easllv be seen from what we have stated
above 'vbere 'he farmer's advantage lies, when it saves him nround

GROWING GIRLS AND

Should Keep  Their Blood Supply
Rich.  Red and  Pure.
Or. every nuntt you aoe women find
growing gins in the deadly clutchea
of nnaemin. Slowly, but surely a
pallor na ot dualh settles on their
cheeks; th^ir eyes prow dull; their
appetite fickle; their steps languid.
Daily they pre beinR robbed nf all
vitality and b-iphtness. The trouble
if neclected, becomes more acute until the signs of early consumption become apparent, What women and
young girls !n this condition need ia
new, rich, red blood, and there is no
other medicine can do the work of
Dr. Willian.*-' Pink Pills, in making
this new, go<,d blood. Those Pills
make glrlB and women well, and bring
back the chasm and brighHirsa of perfect, regular health. Here Is a bit of
proof. M)H8 Lillie O'Carroll, Norwood, Ont., says:—"About two years
ago my health began to fail. I was
weak, run down and bad no ambition
for anything T bad frequent headaches, would be completely tired out
after the least exertion, and had little
or no appetite. A doctor who was
giving me'medicine finally told me he
feared I was going into consumption,
which, of course made me very much
down-hearted. As the medicine I
was taking was not doing me any
good I decided to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and I shall ever feel grateful that I did so. My story may be
summed up Ir..'the words "nine boxes
of the-PIlls fully restored my health,
—perhaps savpd my life, and I am
now as strong nnd healthy as any
girl."

We believe we should be dressed

regular organist only played single
notes. Tba former, of courae required far more wind.
Presently, in the middle of the piece
the wind gave out. The organist
waited a few moments; then finding it
did noi come on again he went round
to the blower, and found him just going home. . ,

comparatively little cement.

What the Editor has to say.
One of tbe most interesting speeches delivered in tlie
debate nn the Navy Bill was that by W, G. Weicliel, member
for Nmtli Waterloo, who defeated Hon. MacKenzie King. As
n member of German descent and representing a constituency
Ini'ireh settled by ppople of German descent, his utterances
oiminiiiiii'.ed unusual attention, Canadian unanimity in the
Burden proposals was shown by tbe speech of Mr. Weichel, for
although lie paid n strung tribute to the greatness and progress
of the German empire he made it quite clear that, he was en.
thusinsticiilly behind any plan which nui'V for the strengthening of the ties between Canada aud the Motherland and gave
his hearty support to tlie plan for a stronger navy lt was one
ui Lite most striking speeches of the debate and it is seldom a
y 'ting member gets as close a hearing as did Mr. VVeichel.
"We have the assurance," said Mr Weicliel, "that a permanent naval policy will be submitted to the people later on.
Ii Mii-niitime let us be true to our professions of loyalty..
Let us do something to regain our self-respect. Our sister
colonies have put us to shame by lining their share. Why
should big aud prosperous Canada lag behind '. We are proud
of our heritage; proud of our bistony and proud of our Empire
Envious eyes are to-day watching our progress in developing
nor natural resourc s. Our future is with that of the Mother
Country. She has watched over us, has guarded us, and now
when we are fast becoming e great nation it will be to our best
interests to stick closely to the Union Jack. She has confidence in us, and to prove, it she sends freely of her money to
develop our resources. IV'e owe a great deal to England. Although of German origin and proud of my ancestry, I am still
prouder that I am a Canadian and a British .subject."
Again in closing Mr. Weichel amidst cheers said: "A great
deal has been heard and said about autonomy and rights and
far too little about duties and responsibilities. In my opinion,
tbe principle of local autonomy has once for all been accepted
and no serious winded person questions it sxny longer. Canada
is either a dart of the Empire or it is not. He cannot any
longer with .self-respect stand idly by and allow Great Britain
to shoulder the whole burden. The supreme interest of the
British Empire is the peace of the world. B'e would all bail
With delight an announcement that the powers had decided to
propose disarmament. But as long as nations will persist in
arming to the teeth, hist so long must the great British nation
be in the van, ready at all times to defend ber rights and to
maintain at all hazards the integrity and stability of the Empire.
Canada's destiny lies with that of the Empire. Our success and prosperity will be assured if we share with her for
weal or woe. 1 hope to be spared to see this a great nation.
Canada has a destiny and it is ryoint/to be a glorious one, linked
together with all the other parts of the Empire in one indissoluble tie that will make for the peace and prosperity of the
world."
Commissioner Maxwell at tlie meeting! of the Licence
Commissioners on Wednesday evening was certainly desirous
of establishing an unknown precedent when be insisted upon
having Commissioner MacDonald 8 motion to enforce the new
provincial liquor law amended so that it would not come into
force until the first day of .Ipiil. The mayor made himself
ridiculous in allowing it and Commissioner Maxwell gave a
vivid illustration of his intelligence in attempting to override
the provincial government in the making oi the laws. IFonder
if this was an April fool joke !

BEWARE OF BLOOD-POISON
Zam-Buk Is A Sure Cure
Mr.  Jas    Dnvey, of 786 EU.ce Avenue, Winnipeg;, says:—"A few months
since 1 way iiired of a poisoned linger
thn ugh the timely use of Zam-Huk.
"I cut a Jeep    gash    across    the
knuckle on 'he first finger of my right.
I hand in opening a lobster can.      I
suffered at ftj time with the soreness
I and pain, but had no Idea It would become a Berlc-Us wound.    However, in
i about two d.'.ys I was greatly alarmed;
; as my wholt* hand and arm to the el-
; bow became suddenly inflamed,   and
■ the finger was much discolored, showing slgnH of blood-poisoning.       Tho
pain was dreadful and I was forced to
! leave off my work and go home.
j    "The Wound on the   knuckle   had
I been poisoned by dust and dirt get-
] tin* Into it.     I then decided to start
! the Zam-Ruk treatment,  and having
! first bathed the cut, I applied the healing balm.      It soothed the pain al-
I u'o&i instan*..", and by next day there
was a grea. improvement.
'     "In a weel.'s time, through  perse-
| vorni.ee wit*, this wonderful preparation, a complete,   cure   was   brought
about."
Zam-Buk is just as good for eczema.
Ulcers, sculp sores, abscesses, piles,
ringworm, bolls, varicose ulcers, running sores, crdd sores/chapped hands,
etc. It draws all poisonous foulness
from a wound or sore and then heals.
TIse It, too, for cuts, burns, bruises
and all skin injuries. Zam-Buk Soap
should be iis'il in conjunction with the
balm for washing wounds nnd sore
places. Excellent, too, for baby's

| A Maori Horse Dev
j    A smart bit «.f business was recently
' done by  one of ilia Maoris of New
Zealand.      The owner i»r a ruc^horse
(called  Firefly  l»n<!  ill ■  misfortune  to
i lose the horse after a very short 111-
I noes.      It had not    been    dead    very
I long before a Maori came along and
i offered  to purchase the bareaie for
1 $5',   which   the  owner   v. :y   willingly
J accepted.     The Maori then got horses
iand  tackie  and removed    the    dead
hor.se Into tits own paddock.
|    The next move was £6 make some
tickets as rapidly as possible.    This
done he proceeded   to   canvass   his
males, and  <iold as many   tickets as
possible at $5 each, t wiling them he
bad bought the well-known racehorse
Firefly, and was going W raffle It so
be was not long hi disposing of thirty
of his home-made tickets.
Thnt evening the raffle came off. and
the lucky man was so excited that be
inslste-d on. .seeing his prize at oilce.
Tbe Maori torn blm the horse was in
the adjoining paddock, and the winner
set out, only to return Immediately,
with the news that the horse waa
dead.
No fear, said the Maori. I see htm
tro gallop, gnl'op round the paddock:
he only sleep. You go back and
look.
The other shook his head but. wont.
Soon he was back wltb the aait'l
tale. He dead all right. Me
kick him, he no get up,
His mate opened his eyes very wide
and said, me go down with yon.
So off they both went, aud needless
to say, only to find the horse dead.
By Gorry! he dead all right, said
the Maori, scratching bis head. ' 1
tell vou what, mate, 1 give you your

The other gladly accepted and
everybody els? thought It. was a very ,

Thia story was told recently at one
of the Service clubs. One or two
young subs were dining together at a
restaurant one night, aim the conversation became a discussion on lies and
lying generally, nnd finally there waa
a warm debate ;ia to who was the biggest liar known to them.
An old gentleman sitting at a table
near was unable to avoid overhearing j
the discussion, and after a few mln-1
utea he rose and came over to their
table.
I have Just heard you decide, gentlemen, he said gravely, that Lieutenant Arthur Blank is the biggest liar
you have ever met.     I am bis father.
After a few seconds' embarrassed
silence, one of Ihe young officers began to stammer apologies, but the old
man waved them aside.
No, no, he said don't apologise. It's

Miss Maude Annesley In her new
book, "My Paeisian Year," tells an
excellent story to illustrate the way
French restaurant keepers try to do
the travelling I'lnglishnmn.
She once went to a very well known
restaurant with an Englishman who
had lived nearly all his lire In France.
He wished to give a dinner for eight.
He studied the menu, decided on
what he wanted, and then UBked the
price per head.
Forty-five francs,'Monsieur, said the
maltre d'hotel.
Miss Annesley'B friend looked steadily nt htm and lemarked: I am French.
The maltre d'hotel pretended to
mako another addition, then said:
Well, Monsieur, we will do it for forty
francs!
The other replied calmly: I am still
French!
Thirty five francs then, said the
maltre d'hotel.
1 have not changed my nationality,
was the retort,, and Miss Annesley
says that the price finally paid was
only twenty-two francs per head.

CHARLES T.

Tiber aids.
ProrHenr*, 71.T.. .3.—We re
port niip nf Pastor Russell*s discourses
to-day from tlie text, "I marvel that
ye nr* so soon removed from Him
that called you into the drive of
Christ unto another Gospel, which is
not another; hut there he some thnt
trou I tie ynu and that would barvert
the Gospel of Christ j ■ • * let him be
accursed."—Galatlnns i, 6*8.  .
When wa remember that there Is
hnt the one Lord, one With, one
Baptism, presented in ihe Bible we
are astounded to Bud io mnny faiths,
so mnny "Gospels," presented by s;>
many denominations, ill bearing the
name of Christ and nil bearing marks
of some relationship to tho Truth—to
ihe Divln ■ Revelation.
St. Paul noted the fnot thnt even
In his dny the brethren in Galntia
hnd "?,n soon" turned away, in part
at least, from the true Message to
another, a perversion, No wonder,
then, if during fifteen centuries thnt
Gospel was almost buried under human tradition. And need we wonder
that we make such slow progress
since in getting buck to "the faith
onee delivered to tbe saints," the
Truth tbut Jesus declare i to he the
sanctifying power of God working in
His people?
It will not do to say that we have
many denominations,, hut only one
Gospel, Denominations were not
organized for amusement, but because
the founders of each believod thnt
they saw a sufficient reason, a sufficient difference of Gospel, to justify
them in forming a new sec . We are
bound to admire their zeal for the
Truth, which I'M them often through
severe persecutions and through martyrdom towards the Light.
Al! the Same each of us owes the
duty to himself, U his brethren, and
fthnv nil. lo the Lord, to search carefully for the original dispel of the
Word of (rod—no matter what it may
cost him to rejeot the more or les3
false Gospels banded down hy well-
meaning brethren of the past.
Thf* new Gospel which the Galntlans
were disposed to accen* was one that
is very prevalent to-day, and is as
much to e reprehended to-day as
when St. Paul wrote. Their new
Gospel consisted of a mixing of the
Jewish Law with the Grace of God
In Christ, ns the Apostle shows. They
said. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
surely; Ha is Ihe Saviour, He is the
Redeemer; we must bellevj on Him,
rm(. that is not enough. We must
heeome Jews under their Law arrangement, and between the Law and Christ
we will ohtnin salvation. Many Christians to-day are ma,r'ng the sam»
mistake by adding something to the
Gospel of Christ. They hunger for
some command, and desim to he under a Law, as a dog used to wearing
a collar nud chain fc^ls not himself
unless thus restrained.
Such dear Christian people, like the
Galatians, do not fully appreciate the
Master's statement, "If the Son shall
make you free, ye shall   be free   indeed."   Such feel lost without Divine
commands—Thou   shalt, Thou   shalt
not,   etc.—nnd   rejoice   specially   in
holy   days   and    Sabbaths,   Church
going   aud   formal   prayers,   because
they do not understand that God   is
belter pleased to have us sons than
to hnve us slaves.   The post got the
thought eorr-ctly when he wrote,
"We enn no longer lie
Like slave? beneath the Thron*.
Our souls now 'Abba, Father,' cry.
And He the kindred owns."
A measure of bondage to forms,
ceremonies and commands is probably re( 3onable to expect in immature Christians, whom St. Paul styles
"hares, in Christ." (I. Corinthians
iii, 1.) But growth in grace and
knowledge- must bring such moro
pearly to the stature of manhood in
Christ and to an appreciation of their
relationship to Cod as sons, else they
will not make their calling nnd election sure to tho best things that God
ha* provided.
From the most prominent pulpits
of Christendom the Gospel nf Christ
respecting the forgiveness of individual sin. the reooncil, 'on of the individual heart, the individual begetting of ihe Holy Spirit, and the p°r-
sonal walk in newness of life has been
discarded. Long ago this Message w *
considered loo personal. Many of the
preachers, having had no such ex-
p°rienee themselves, properly enough
were chary of talking about whet
they did not understand. But salaries must go on. Sermons, therefor0,
must be preached, snd something
must be said. The Social Gospel hns
been brought forward to fill the gup.
Tin message of the hour, according
io this pseudo-Gospel, is not eaintli-
sm, not following in the footsteps
of Jesus, not Bible study, but athletics, manliness, position in society,
attention to political duties, attainment of honorable positions in the
«orld, and great names which wilt
make the Church register shine—and
money withal.
Far be it from me to teach Inattention to the duties and responsibilities
of lite. Nothing in the words of
Jesus or tbe Apostles admonishes or
exemplifies carelessness in respect to
tiealtn, manhood, womanhood, education, good nam i and a proper provision of the things needful to tho
present life. The Gospel of Jesus and
tha Apostles, however, tells us—most
distinctly impresses upon all the followers of Jesus—that their consecration as disciples of Jesus means their
death to worldly ambitions for wealth,
praise of men, political office and the
giving ol chief c^nrrn Co the pre*
•ervatlon of their earth!/ lives. It
•shorts that these are all to be eon-
aidered quite secondary to the new
ambition*, the new ideals, set before

opportunity. This would include, of
course, everything akin to social uplift. Indeed, we cannot imagine that
any one cnuld he n Christian— a follower of the Lamb of God—without
having a fUfp sympathy with everything appertaining t" the welfare of
humanity and a social uplift. But
the Apostle's expression, "as we hnve
opportunity," ts a limitation. The
mission (,t the Christian is not social
uplift. That is not the work to which
the Lord .lvsus and His followers dedicated their lives—at least not the
kind of social uplift generally understood,
The unfile work of God in connection with human Redemption is to be
an uplifting work for Adam and his
entire rw. The uplift which God
has planned and which He has revealed in ihe Bible is to be a most
thorough one, S'.ch as humanity lias
never conceived. It is to be an uplift

hack to the image and likeness of
Cod—lost in Eden, r< deemed at Calvary. This social uplift of mankind
which Cod is interested in, nnd of
which Cod is tlie Center and Fulcrum,
i« the line in which all the followers
of Jesus, rightly instructed, are. more
interested than any oilier people tu
th.' whole world.
Howevr, the followers of Jesus are
soldiers of the cross under His Captaincy, and they are not at liberty to
follow theories either of their own or
of other men respecting the way in
which the great work of uplifting the
world is to be accomplished. They
nre deeply inUrtstod in everything
which men nnd women can do for the
betterment of humanity   in any and
■ every sens3 of the word. And, ns
they have opportunity', they are glad
to give a word of encouragement and
appreciation, or occasionally a helping hand. But theirs ig a far more
important, work.   They are co-laborers
, with God—not with men,
God's Plan is first to select the
Church, tli" Body of Christ, to be His
joint-heirs in the glorious Messianic
Kingdom. Then He will use that
Kingdom for the thorough and complete Bocial uplift, which all agree is
so necessary. The; world sees not the
Divine Plan, nnd even the Message
of the Grace of Cnd is foolishness to
them; hence also the world may probably think of JegUS and His follow*
era ns chimerical. Their theory, God's
I testimony, is foolishness to the world
— and those who follow the "Divine
arrangement, as St. Paul saya, are
counted fools all the day long—be.
cttuse they are spending their lives
for the accomplishment of things
wllteh the world cannot see. understand, appreciate—"the deep things of
God."   (I. Corinthians ii, 10.)
The Gospel of form and ceremony
is not always hypocrisy,    If reverential  forms anil   chants   and   printed
prayers always came from the heart
and were never merely forms,   there
would be much In   them   to   approve
and enjoy.    Still, ceremonies   are no
part of the Gospel of Christ, and to
put them instead of it. is to make of
them false Gospel.   Who will say that
either Christ or any of the Apostles
presented a Gospel of forma and ceremonies?
•    The hiimnn heart is deceitful shove
all things, say the Scriptures.   It likes
| to delve into worldliness and frivol-
I My and sometimes into sin. and then
j to deceive itself into believing that it
1 is the (Sleet of God and n special sub.
ject of His care nrd vui; of heavenly
gtery.    Many  such   appear   tn  know
nothing whatever respecting the Gospel o* Christ.   Theirs is a Gospel of
good works, donations to hospltalB, to
sneinl uplift and Church   work   and
forms  and ceremonies,    They  feel  a
burden roll  away  wh»n  they   repent
weekly  the  phrase,  "We have done
those things which  we ought not to
hnve done, and hnve left undone the
things which we ought to hav don".
t and there   is no health   in   us.    Be
t merciful to us miserable sinners."
But any suggestion that these Rre
1 miserable sinners nnd need to know
j the way of the Lord mere perfectly,
■ «nd to become justified saints if they
would h» heirs of God, they would
resent. The Gospel of formalism h*ns
done great  injury   to  such   people,
' many of whom, rightly informed re.
spectlng the Gospel of Christ, might
be pr"atly blessed, sanctified, and
made meet fer the inheritance ol the
saints in light.
|    As sn illustration   of   the  religious
■ stupor produced by the Gospel . t
: formalism and ceremony, let me tell
1 you of a gentleman of prominence iu
, London  whom  1   met recently.   He
paid, "I was out to hear you last
Sunday. I was one of that audience
! of thousands, and I want to tell you
j that you disturbed me greatly. I did
| not come away from your meeting
! happy and contented, but the reverse.
' I was disappointed. Why, the way
; you presented the matter, showing
I the terms and conditions of disciple-
! ship in the  narrow  way, and eross-
■ hearing in the footsteps of Jesus,
shocked me. I said to myself, Then
I am not a Christian at all.   I have
, not even taken the first steps in the
Christian way. But when I went
home my good mother-in-law said,
'Do not be alarmed at all—stick to
your own religion.'"
The Gospel of Christ was waking
that man up out of his lethargy of
formalism. I told him that I sought
to do my duty in presenting the
Gospel of Christ in no uncertain
terms and that if he should profit hy
my message and become a joint-heir
with Jesus in His Messianic 7'ingdom
as a result of being waked up, he
would thank me for it to all eternity.
| Of all the various things substituted for the Gosp 1 ol Christ the moat
ipttfnt perversions are the Gospel? of
Purgatory nnd eternal torture. Yjt
So perverted is the human sensibility
to the Truth thn! 'f one snid he
"heard a real Gospel sermon." the
'majority would understand it to mean
that he heard horrible misrepresenta-
; Hon* of the Divine character and
1 purpose to the effect that nearly
I everybody—alj except th° saintly—
, ure in route for torture at th° hands
lrf demons, and that the saintly few
|are to get to heaven nnd to all eternity look over Its battlement* nt their
I brethren and sisters in torture and
1 to a'l eternitv to hear their wails of
' dist-ess.
How terrible the pTver*ten which
eould call such stuff "gond tidings of
tTeat joy which shall be unto all
| people!" I am glad that th» Bible
fcttu-'ents, recently in Convention, re-
I pud hit d such -i Gospel as being .the
one of the Rible. 1 was glad that
I they called upon the ministers everywhere lo dtcltirs themselves in no
uncertn'n terms, and I was glad to
note through the newspapers a very
general repudiation "f the torture
Gospel. Nothing that the henthen
have i-< a^ had, and th! wonder Is
that missionaries hav° mnde any
progress wbatev-r in heathen lands.
For the real Gospel, I believe th.-r.-nl
[heatbpn ar1 in readiness, hungering—
I th" Ivtnhmnniednns tils >.
Faith-hoallnc is another of the faV»
jpoapels opposed both to th" letter and
I Ihe   spirit   of Jesus'   teaching'.    Not
in single one nf  the   Lord's  disciples
was heal-tl miraculously, nor a single
Prophet nf old.    The mirae'>s  which
I Jesus pnrformed   were   wholly   upon
I outsiders, not His disciples, and wpth
illustrations of how Himself and His
I church In Kingdom glory will bless,
h°al, uplift and restore all th° families of the earth—all the willing and
obedient.    St.   Paul  bless d  napkins
nnd handkerchiefs to be sent to the
sick, hut n*ver on" of these wet gent
to the hr thr<M..   When Timothy wns
sick,  St.   Paul   instead  recommended
a change of diet.
Many dear Christian people are
misled hy the snurinus statement of
Mark Kit "These sir;n.s shall follow
them that believe," i tc. They cling
to the pnssn.ee "vn after being given
(abundant proof? that it was added
to the Scriptures iri the Seventh Century, and that it was omitted proper-
ly from the Rrvisecj Version. So
deeply seated is the love fnr the
Gospel of h 'aling. that this passage
is clung to by some even after it is
pointed out tn th°m thnt they would
not dare to ■•m and drink poisonous
things, as it mentions.
The' Gospel of Christ, as applied to
this Age, is Ihe very reverse of the
gosoel of healing, Jesus, who was
perfect, laid down His life in doing
good for others.* His Apostles did
the same, Indeed the stipulation of
disclpleship is. He that loyelh his l'.te
nnd s^ekelh to save it will lose it;
he that lospth his life saoriflci&lly for
My saks and for Ihe Gospel's shall
find it. The Gospel of Christ is the
Gospel of self-denial and suffering
and pnt*ent endurance—joy in the
Lord and health of spirit, rather than
joy and health of the flesh. True,
godliness and contentment do often
bring to God's people an increase of
h°alth through their rest of mind.
But thi1' is neither promised to them
nor to he prayed fnr by them. On
th'1 contrary, thev nre to follow the
examph of th" Redeemer in laying
down their lives for the brethren.

} Manv lengthy and learned opinions
.have been jm1 uned on the subject of
sun spots since the time of Dr, Alexander Wilson of Glasgow, t'ie first
i man to observe tlwm hi 1709. Sun
I spots are caused, so the savants say,
I by great masses ot the vapor and
gases given off bv the sun ascending
jto a tremendous distance from its sK.:r-
I face, cooling, and Anally when they
'are out of range of the heat, con-
jdensing into solid masses and falling
with meteoric speed to the sun's surface again.
"A pun spot." says one authority,
"is one of the dark spots that appear
from time to time, consisting commonly ul a blue-black central portion, or
umbra, with a surrounding border of
penumbra, of light shade, and usually
visible only with the telescope,
'San spots are very changeable in
the figure and dimensions, varying
from mere apparent points (perhaps
1,000 milca across), to spaces over
100,000 miles in extent. They last of-
ten a month, sometimes several
months. They occur with periodic frequency, the length of eyel j being 11.13
years, and their appearance is accompanied by lose of light, sometimes by
toss of heat and often hy magnetic
storms on the earth. Their exact un-
ture is uot fully known.
"In 1SS1 astronomers measured one
huge sun Bpot, which measured 140,-
0C0 miles across, and in which the
commotions were so great that they
could be detected by eye observation

Buffalo Loose  tn Winnipeg.
Roaming at large without let or

Winnipeg, the other night, lt seems
that the animal was one of the herd
formerly at Silver Heights, once the
residence of Lord Strathcona, and
which was purchased by the city for
the Assiniboine City Park, from which
it broke away a few nights ago, and
after swimming across the river, went
into home pasturage west nf Deer
Lodge, where cattle were browsing. It
waa seen between mx and seven
o'clock in the evening »n tho Woodlands district aud passed about *i^0
yards from Portage avenue, terrifying
several oi the residents, including u
woman and three children, whom it
passed at a distance of about three
feet.
Immediately it was missed the attendants e.nd park keepers set out on
the hue and cry to trnek tht* errant
erstwhile master of the plains and
prairies of the west. They traced him
to Brookside and on the direction of
Stoney Mountain, but not being ac-
customed to herding buffaloes at
large, they had considerable difficulty
in keeping on his trail.
By dint of great p?rserverance.
however, they headed him 'iff again in
the direction of tho Assiniboine Park
liy tlie St, James district, and tried
to drive him towards the ri\er again
so that he might swim back the way
he came. He went down to the river
aud went a lew Btt?ps, but tuned and
