Contradict   Statements   as   to
Conduct of Crew of
Montreal,June 2. -- At the Place
Viger Hotel today Dr. Grant,
ship's surgeon on board the Empress of Ireland, ami Lionel
Alexander Hyamson, a British
commercial traveller from London
contradicted in the most emphatic
terms statements which are being
made attributing careless conduct
to the officers and crew of the
Storstad, and, at the same time,
spoke in no less striking terms of
the utter falsity of the charges
made against Captain Kendall.
Dr. Grant said that in his boat
there were three Norwegians,
every one of whom rendered all
assistance in his power to assist
those in need, and the same
applies to men aboard the Storstad. If at any time there was
any seeming want of action, Dr.
Grant was inclined to think that
it arose by reason of the ignorance of the English language on
the part of the Norwegian seamen, but he himself was not
aware of a single case of neglect.
on the contrary, every assistance
was given.
Mr. Hyamson said there was
not a word of truth in the suggestions made as to callous conduct. Everybody did their best.
The doctor and he worked together from the beginning.
If there had been any brutality
or hesitation in rendering assistance, he most cev'.ainly would
have known. As a matter of fact
all turned out their belongings
and gave them every stitch of
clothing they had. From the
Captain's wife to the humblest
seamen everybody did his or her
best, and such stimulants as were
required for the injured and
suffering were freely laid at their
Dr. Grant, referring to the
condition of Captain Kendall,
said he found the captain quite
incapacitated and unable to walk,
having apparently been injured
in the back as well as internally,
and he had to be assisted by two
mon. The doctor tried as hard
as he could to get him to take a
little brandy, but he would not
take it. He found out afterwards
that he was a life-long abstainer.
"I am certain the captain had
had no liquor. I examined him
very closely and could not have
failed to have smelled the liquor
had he taken,, any. I took the
captain and put him to bed in the
captain's cabin on the Storstad.
He was in a very weak condition
and much alarmed me. I insisted
that he should take some brandy,
and at last succeeded in getting
him to take a mouthful. He said
he-cou'd take no more,: as he had
never taken any in his life, and
it certainly seemed to distress
him a great deal." This happened in the presence of Officer Fyle
who is among the rescued. "11,"
said Dr. Grant, " you make any
use of what I say, make this as
clear antl emphatic as you can."
Continuing, Dr. Grant said
that he took Captain Kendall from
from the stateroom on the Storstad, after everyone else had
been rendered assistance, and
with the assistance of one of the
Empress officers, took him on
hoard the Lady Evelyn. " He
was still very weak and unable
to walk," he added "and practically had to be taken and carried
to bed. The next time I found
him he had fallen out of bed and
was lying on the floor. I again
offered him stimulants, which he
refused. Upon arrival at the
dock I had the captain taken in a
cab to a house at Father Point.
He was still in his wet clothes
and suffering from shock and
exposure in addition to his illness.

Island Athletic Association Hold
Successful Social and
The Denman Islanders made a
brave show on the 21st. It was
inaugurated hy the Island Athletic Club to celebrate the completion of their new hall, the largest
we understand, north of Nanaimo
The club and buildings were built
by local subscription. It took the
form of a delightful dance that
was well managed and arranged
in every way. So pleasant and
successful was it, that on every
side visitors were expressing
hopes that it would prove to be
the first of many. Guests came
from Comox, Courtenay, Union
Bay, Fanny Bay and Hornby Island, the unusual sight of fifteen
launches at the Denman wharf
making a pleasant testimony.
The only disappointment was the
failure, at the last moment, of
the Charmer to bring down the
Comox district contingent, which
probably prevented some parties
from going. As it was there were
ninety-five couples on the floor,
and the hall could have accomodated more without crowding. A
beautiful, warm and still night
made a picnic of the water trip
and doubtless saved many charming dresses from injury. The
dresses deserve some special
mention, but to the mere male it
is only possible to say that they
were worthy of the special occasion they so much adorned. The
exodus of launches at sun-rise
was proof of a full enjoyment
and promise of many sleepy heads
and tired feet throughout the
day-cheerfully borne and almost
fo'rgotten, as we happen to know
in the recall of happy incidents.
The crowds that attended the
Victoria Day sports in this city
on Monday May 25th excelled
any previous year. A special
train of six coaches conveyed the
visitors from Comox, Courtenay
and Headquarters to Cumberland
which was kindly placed at the
disposal of the sports committee
by the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. The weather
was not all that could be desired
but did not prevent the crowd of
visitors from attending Cumberland sports which were above
the usual standard and kindly
contested, The West Cumberland

The Minister announced that
the court will be assisted by four

interested will have that privilege
It is.still undecided whether the
investigation will be held at
Quebec or Montreal, and the tribunal itself may make the choice.
The order which will be passed to
'authorize the investigation will
be such as to give the widest scope
of inquiry into all facts relevant
to the disaster, to fix the responsibility for it and to make such
recommendations or findings as
are pertinent. It is anticipated
that  it  will   extend  over 'two
weeks and embrace a general
investigation of the rules in
Canadian waters.
One of the most exciting foot
ball matches ever played in this
city took place at the recreation
grounds on Sunday between
Bevan and Union Bay football
teams. A special train conveyed
a crowd of visitors from Bevan
to witness the game of football

Day sports on the 25th. The
prize was $75 put up by the
sports committee for the 11 aside
event. The Union Bay and Bevan
boys played a good game, both
sides confident of winning. The
result was 2 to 1 in favor of
Union Bay who obtained the last
goal in the last five minutes of

Half a dozen men are now
busy remodelling thc Canadian
Collieries' pile driver on the
water-front at Union Bay making
preparations for extensive repairs
to the shipping wharves. New-
building and railroad scales have
recently been erected near the
wharf. The coal washer is now
undergoing some needed repairs.
The British Steamship Radnorshire of the Royal Mail Steam
Packet Company arrived at
Union Bay on Tuesday and
immediately went along side the
Canadian Collieries' shipping
wharves and took on 1000 tons of
bunker coal.
The British Steamer Radnorshire-sailed from Portland a few
days ago for London with Washington coal as fuel. For eight
days the big steamship only
logged eight knots an hour. Tbe
chief engineer realized that the
fuel supply remaining would
enable the vessel to reach a
point about two days run from
an oriental port where coal
could be secured. So Captain
Willets decided to return for
more fuel and came on to Union
Bay to get some good Cumberland coal, The Radnorshire will
now be able to steam 10 knoU
an hour with Cumberland coal.

Movement  to  Secure  Treaty  to  Protect  Mijratory  Birds
That the V.s. Congress, about a
yeur ago, passed on act for the protection of migratory birds which is
even more beneficial to Canada than
to the United Stales, and that the
Dominion government can assist in
making this law permanent and effective by negotiating a treaty on the
subject. were Important points
brought out by Mr. William S. Haskell, counsel of the American (lame
Protective association, at a recent r.d-
dress at the fiifth annual meeting of
thc commission ol* conservation. Tbe
defenders of states rights are up in
aims against tho act, and tliere is
danger of this far-reaching measure
being set aside ou the ground of unconstitutionality. Shot:''. a treaty be
negotiated, however, this would be
impossible-, as no treaty can be annulled by judicial procedure. Hence,
the Dominion government should uso
its-, influence to persuade the British
government to negotiate such a treaty and thus meet American reformers half-way in Iheir endeavors to
protect North Amerlcun wild, birds.
lu many parts of tho United
Slates, gumc sanctuaries have now
been established, where no shooting
is allowed, except oL vermin, and
where all wild creatures are free to
live and propagate unmolested. The
American Game Protective association hns established near Cape Cod,
Mas.**,, a bIx thousand acre game farm,
where quail, grouse, heath heus,
pheasants, i.artridges, wild ducks,
turkeys and geese, have beeij successfully rair'd. Came biluls are sent
out to members of llie association
who will undertake to r«w them in
refuges, enable thei*. to increase, and,
in due lime, release them so that the
covers may be restocked.

Miss Innocence.
A writer in the Pictorial Review addresses a timely
article to fathers of young girls in which the evident tendency
of feminity in her teens tq adapt for herself the fashions of
her elders is deplored. " What has become of the young
girls?" demands this writer, who pleads for the return of
Miss Innocence. We have made a mistake, he declares, in
1,'tting our girls grow up too fast. There is neither meek
ness nor shadow in the eyes of Miss Sixteen today ; she is
" smart" and amusing, but she is no longer " sweet;" her
bearing announces an independence that is too assertive
and we do not like to think of her as a wife of our son. The
situation which commands the attention of fathers is outlined
as follows:
"A member of our staff was sent to find out what
young girls are wearing. She did not go to the shops supported by the socially exclusive, but to stores patronized by the
middle class, prosperous fathers. Here is what she found
most popular for girls in their teens, bound for mountain or
shore: Small editions or imitations of what smart and dashing matrons and widows are choosing. Split skirts, to be
worn over spider web silk stockings and no petticoats;
waists of lace and net so thin as to scarcely veil the
shadow lace lingerie worn beneath; pumps cut low in the
vamp, with dazzling buckles, and even sparkling heels,
Sporting coats in garish colors and blatant stripes instead of
sinple sweaters
Foolish Saving
A penny saved is not always a penny
earned. Sometimes it is two pennies lost.
The merchant who spends nothing on
advertising loses much more than he
The money spent for plate glass windows is
not looked on as lost; nor is the money spent
on better interior lighting.
Anything that increases favor, that adds to
sales, that multiplies customers is very properly regarded as a good investment.
Advertising is a good investment just as
plate glass windows are. Advertising sells
more goods to more persons than shop
windows do.
Do you resent having a merchant address his
message to you in the form of an advertisement
in our columns P On the contrary, is not your
impulse to respond to his friendly overtures P

for not progressing, except that there are some few people
in the community who hold back-because there are some
knockers to be knocked with.
Yes, you have him. It may be that he has retired from

he is not interested in the betterment of schools. He is

The Knocker.
One of our exchanges remarks that this is a day of
boosters and boosting. A great majority of our people are
desirous seeing their town grow. Everybody watches the
census report just to see how big they have gotten. The
thought of advancement seems to be in the popular mind.
But also we seem to have a sort of counter irritant in
every community that we commonly speak of as the knocker.
We always have had him, possibly always will. He is with
you there in your town, and possibly he has a mission to fill.
But whether he is of any use of not, you have him, and
should be ab'e to take care of him. Any movement for
improvement and betterment in your community will bring
him to the fore, and it often happens that your local knocker
is the very one who should be the biggest booster in your
It often happens too, that your knocker is not
pessimist at heart, but simply knocks for lack of understanding. He works against his own interest, against the
interest of his fellow townsman, because he really doesn't
know what is best for him. This often happens just because
people do not put forth any effort to become better
acquainted with those about them.
The business men in a certain little city feel the need
of a new bridge across the river, but the farmers on the
other side of the river have been told, by some politician
perhaps, who wishes to curry their favour, that such a bridge
would be an enormous tax, and those farmers are almost to
a man against the bridge proposition just because they do
not understand, they have not stopped and seriously considered the situation, they have not realized that the bridge
across the stream will bring them nearer to the town, to
better markets, to closer fellowship with those on the other
side of the stream, and that all these things were of value to
them. These men are knocking because they do not understand.
Yes, every town seems to have the knocker, but we can
not afford to take him seriously; we must simply go on and
ignore him. If you have work to do, do it. It may require
a little nerve, some tack bone, and courage,'but if a thing
needs to be done it will pay you to do it. Throughout this
country there are many towns that have absolutely no reason
ers abroad. He is usually selfish, and the selfish person is
never the best for the community, but since you have him
in some form or other it is necessary for you, the real soldier
of advancement, to buckle on your sword and go out and
fight the battles of your town and community without paying attention to him. If you can just go on and do things
you will be surprised to see how many of the knockers will
fall in line, and after a while ask te carry the flag or beat
the drum.
Bringing Up Mothers.
A young person has been writing an article on the
the bringing up of mothers. Thirty years ago mothers were
not brought up; they just grew. They wore caps early,
gave up dancing when their children were ih short frocks
and knickerbockers, and developed all sorts of incorrect
ideas about chaprons and flirtations. Formerly the young
idea was trained the way it should go. Now the old tree is
pruned and pared into shape, Girls have assumed the
a responsibility of looking after their mothers. Mothers are
are kept to see to a well-ordered house, coax refractory
fathers and attend to bores. They must, moreover, be
ornamental, look well at the head of the table, dress becom
ingly, keep up with the fashions, and look nice when the
girls take them out, and smile encouragingly at the young
men. Nor are their morals forgotten. Frequently one hears
a girl say: " It is an interesting show, but not one I'd care
to take my mother to."

carrying disease germs were swatted upon its initial appear-
ance ih the homes eveiy spring we would soon have normal
health conditions once more as in the days of our forefathers.
True, there are many other sources for disease to be
carried besides the fly, but he is the chief one and right now
is the time to wage war upon him. At this time of the year
the eggs are being laid whereby millions more will be
hatched out by summer. If they are killed at this stage the
benefit gained is many fold greater than the same slaughter
a month later. ... .....

For Baking Success
—This Oven Test
Success on some baking days
can be expected no matter
what flour you use. But constant success is rarer. It can
be assured in only one way.
The miller must select his
wheat by oven test.
So from each shipment of
wheat we take ten pounds as
a .sample. We grind this into
flour. Bread is baked from
the flour. tm**m*\**ramaa
If this bread is high in quality, PURiTy

alone than she had been. Social affairs, even tennis and golf, had lost
much of their charm. Those of her
frieuds who hud married bud passed
from her to their children. They were
as glad as ever to meet her. but she
realized that their little ones had taken
her placo In tho hearts of tbelr parents. She began to envy ber friends
tho possession of their children. The
pnrcuts were still young, und their oil
spring were still children. Miss Iintb*
bone bad not reached an age to understand lho value of u grown son or
daughter to an old person.
When Miss Rothbone wns Hearing
thirty, she was still au attractive woman. Having como to realize what
sho had missed, or believed she bad
missed, lu not having taken steps lo
build her owu nest, she respired to
mnko bay during tho brief season
when (lie sun would still shine. She
remembered regretfully the superfluity
of gamo within range during past
yenrs nnd rccogulzed tho fuct that the
woods for her had been pretty well
eleaued out. As nfter civilization has
encroached on hunting grounds sportsmen must go farther for game, su did
Miss Itatbbone come to think that she
must seek new fields. Sprlug was coming on. and sbe thought of summer resorts. Itut sbo knew that the only
game to be found at such places are
old men and T)oys. She hud discovered
that sbe had passed thc ngc when n
college student bad censed to be something for ber to look up to.
Travel next suggested itself to her.
When a young girl she had been more
nearly caught In ber owu traps while
touring in Europe than nt nny other
time. She bad found sightseeing In
company with young men nn admirable Held for her flirtations. And ns
for an ocean voyage, nfter tho wearing
off of ninl de mer, tbere seemed to lie
something about salt water to Induce
love. Miss nnthbone decided to join
tbe heglra of tbose sailing for foreign
ports tbo next season.
Miss llathbonc Joined a party of her
acquaintances who were going to mnko
a three months* tour of Europe. How
changed wero her circumstances from
that Miss RntbluiM who bad often bid
llfflculty ln staving off tbe importunities of several young men, each of
whom was bent on receiving nn an

their gods. As for giving up nny of
their privileges, they bad no such Idea
whatever. They wero like the crow,
which, utterly worthless for game,

During a sojourn at Lake Como Miss
P.nthbono fell in witli u widower, Edwin Dudley, who was nut much her
senior and whose descent into tlie
Avcrnus of bachelorhood bad been
averted by marriage. Ue bad placed
bis only child, a boy, at school In Ge*
ucva nnd was taking a holiday in northern Italy, wbere at the time the climate was uclther too hot nor too cold.
Mr. Dudley was staying at the same
hotel as Miss lluthbone and lirst saw
ber onc morning ut breakfast on thc
stono balcony against which dashed
the waters of the lake The situation
was propitious. Directly opposite rose
a high mountain, looming np between
the lake and the blue sky. To thc
right nnd to tho left were cliffs and
battlements Innumerable, some near at
hand, some mellowed by distance, some
a velvet,green, some brown, some red.
Miss nnthbone felt a moiety of that
spirit of tho beautiful that she bnd
experienced In her younger days. As
for Mr. Dudley, be looked at her wltb
manifest interest.
AuicHcnns abroad are very like a circle of intimate acquaintances at home,
with this difference—at home they
are hedged about by innumerable conventionalities; abroad tbey havo much
of the bonhomie of tbe old stage-
conch dnys. Mr. Dudley bad no difficulty In securing an Introduction to
Miss nnthbone, and he. had scarcely
dono so when he Invited her to go out
on the lake with lilm In onc of those
rowboats pulled by lusty Italians tbe
stem seats of wblch are supplied with
cushions and canopies.
During this bont ride Mr. Dudley,
perhaps following that disposiiiou of
Americans abroad to feel on short acquaintance as if tbey had known each
other for years, developed a familiarity which would be accorded only to
au old acquaintance, tte rallied the
lady on not having mated, declaring
tbat It must certainly bnve been her
own fault nud wondering why she
should prefer maidenhood to matrimony.
To this she replied evasively, but
wltb becoming modesty, throwing the
blame on tbe men. Mr. Dudley I rented
this for what It was worth, saying
tbat he did not not doubt if some wizard could by Incantation gather together llie men she had refused they would
prove to bo more numerous than (Ish
in tbo lake on which they were riding.
To tliis Miss Itatbbone smilingly demurred ami declared that she had never had an offer.
"Nonsense!" exclaimed the gentleman. "Do you suppose that I am stupid enough to believe that n woman
of your attractive personality bas never received a proposal? I have no
doubt that you have received hundreds
of them."
"Well, how are you going to prove
your assertion V A man refused by a
woman will not tell nbout It."
"There is only one who will do tbnt."
said Dudley nfter some moments of
silence. "A ninu who lias onco been
refused und afterward accepted would
be proud of liis lltiul success and would
uot be averse to letting It be known."
"I don't see how that helps die innt-
toi* so long as I remain as I nm."
"itight you are," replied the other
"Nevertheless .vou may some day yield
to one of your old flames. If you marry I shall ask your husband if he wns
not refused by you before his fluiil acceptance."
"You nro quite welcome to do that,"
replied Miss nnthbone, "but it seems
to me rather improbable that you
should have thc opportunity since thc
companions ot my youth wbo are living nre married."
"So bo It, but lake care lest I prove
my assertion."
In extreme youth thc sexes male,
they know not why. In Inter life they
know very well why. They feel the
need of companionship ond a home.
A mnn cannot make a home without a
woman, und an old maid's home is at
best cheerless. Mr. Dudley wns looking for a wife just ns eagerly as Miss
Itatbbone wus looking for a husband,

the region which the Government
agreed lo give to the settlers.
There was not miic.i promise of a
fertile farming country, a wooded region, a forest primeval, a virgin

but the minister 'ocated bis claim,
his 20,000 acres of wilderness, nnd
figuratively drove his stakes. The
Minister of Crown Lands sent his
surveyors in and by May 10 the land
was all lined out and soon the (list
consignment of poor'nieu, land hungry, reached Rat Portage. The crowd

There were ■ dillc'an es, thoso

They were used to work. Tbe only
difference was that .heretofore they
had toiled for their landlords, to pay
oil mortgages on farms they hope to
own. Now each man receiveii his
land free. Everything he did was a'or
himself. Wben he had his farm
cleared, it was his. Log huts went
up: men and women set to work.
The 20,000 acres was allotted
quickly. Followed more settlers. The
Minister of Crown Lands gave another 20,000 acres, then another, th»n
another, until 80,000 acres of Rainy

That was the beginning. Thc end

For years It hns been planned lo
erect a bridge from lhe Morro castle
side of thc Havana harbor io the city
side, but this undertaking has always
been postponed because of tne large
amount ot heavy sua traffic which
would of ueccsslty have to pass beneath the bridge and because of the
difference in levels between the twa
sides of tlie harbor. The former objection, engineers said, would necessitate abridge over 2CU feet Iu height
and Che latter would entail a long
and very costly approach on (he city
stde of the harbor.
a/bdern engineering methods, however, have provided pohlMous for both
■of theso problems, and the bridge wlll
soon be cow mo need, the Cuban congress having appropriated .$2,500,000
for the construction of the giant spnu.
The bridge itself will no nearly 300
feet above the surface or ihe harbor,
thus allowing the largest vessels afloat
to -pass beneath without danger to
their superstructure. There will ho
but a siugle span to the bridge, sup*
ported by massive masonry pillars nt

bridge will be "raised" so as to offer
