The Herald Takes a Stand which
ii a Sure Winner- Some Pertinent Remarks.
The Nanaimo Herald of yesterday says as follows:
Do the miners of Nanaimo
have to he told how lo run their
Apparently Pettigrew, Foster,
Pattison, Jordan, et al, think so.
These gentlemen are professional
agitators—for a consideration.
They do not work in the local
mines, they do not take the risks
of the Nanaimo miner, and are
working in the interests of au
American organization that, as
far as we know, has never won
a strike in Canada.
A few months ago they came
to Nanaimo and commenced a
careful campaign of agitation.
They succeeded in throwing the
miners of Ladysmith out of work.
They succeeded in throwing the
miners of Cumberland out of
work, and now they have succeeded in throwing the miners of
Nanaimo out of work.
They did not give the Nanaimo
miners a chance to say whether
they wished to quit work or not.
On the advice of one Frank Farrington, whose interest in the
Nanaimo miners exist for a reason many can guess, they told
the miners of this city they had
to quit work. The Nanaimo
miners did not have a say in the
matter. They were simply told
by these gentlemen that they had
to quit work and according to
Frank Farrington's signed statement, they will not be able to
resume work until the operators
of Ladysmith, Cumberland and
Nanaimo recognise the U, M. W.
of A.
A few level headed courageous
miners of Nanaimo decided they
would have a say in the matter
and called for a vote. Some four
hundred miners had the courage
to face the reception near the
polls arranged by these gentlemen.
The result was ten to one in
favour of continuing work. The
result would have been much the
same had the remainder of those
who wanted to vote had the courage to face the subtle opposition
that these gantlemen, well versed
in the gentle method of subjugation, worked on the day of the
The same gentlemen had a bill
posted about the city branding all
who went to work as scabs. It
is the ugliest word that can be
used to a miner. The Nanaimo
miners were to be scabs because
they wished to fulfill an agreement they had made themselves
with the company; scabs if they
dared to work, although five of
these professional agitators said
they could not work; Bcabs because they were satisfied with
their lot and might wish to continue their work, scabs because,
even if they were not satisfied,
they knew the time was soon
coming when they could make
their own agreement with the
company without the assistance
of a number of individuals who
wished to collect a monthly fee
from them. * \
What the men of Nanaimo
should have done whet, that ugly
word scab was used—a'r word for
which there was never less excuse for using—was to have
thrown it back at the professional t-p-itatprs who, t'sed \\. The
agitators still draw salaries; the
miners are out of work.
There are a thousand miners
right in the city of Nanaimo to
day who are wondering why they
quit work. There are a good
many more than a thousand
miners in the city of Nanaimo
who arc soon going to take a
little hand in the game of which
they have been the victims.
When they do, the memory of
Pettigrew, Foster, Pattison, Jordan, et al, will be but an ugly
dream. They will have left
Nanaimo for pastures new, and
things will be in Nanaimo as
they were before this so called
strike in the best coal mining city
in America.
The Herald is not against unionism. It runs a union shop and
pays the highest union wages in
Nanaimo, running a night shift.
In every particular it obeys the
rules of the Typographical Union.
But the Herald is dead against
the kind of tactics practiced by
the gentlemen who represent the
U.M.W. of A. in Nanaimo. For
the past several months some of
the bunch of agitators, who have
thrived in Nanaimo. have run
riot in damning the Herald. This
paper has not retaliated because
it was a matter that affected only
the Herald. This ridiculous thing
however, which by a far-stretched effort .of the imagination is
cailed a strike, is a different
matter. It effects every man,
woman and child in the best city
in British Columbia, and although
the bunch of paid agitators who
have let their tongues run riot in
Nanaimo for the past several
months think they have everything and evey one "buffaloed,"
the Herald is going to tell the
straight facts of the situation.
This is by way of elucidation
the gentlemen who openly boasted at Ladysmith on May 1 that
they were going to put Nanaimo
"on the hog."
(by l. saville)
In the application of coal-cutting machinery in mines, its use
demands the adoption of the
most perfect system of workong
coal, that is the straight faced
longwall, a method which admits
of the roof being dealt with systematically and ensures uniform
subsidence across the whole face
instead of local subsidence as is
the case with irregularly worked
The first important step is to
get the principle of systematic
timbertng applied along the face
The prop where you like system
without any regular system at all
should never be allowed in any
mine, but stringent rules should
be laid down stipulating the distance apart at which posts must
be set along the face, and also
the maximum distance apart of points.

Mr. Young, the Courtenay

will purchase a lot and erect a
building. Mr. Young has been
in the photographic business at
Courtenay for some years where
Ifie is prepared tp dp practical

employs none but experienced
the rows of timber posts, and
each district to which the rules
apply should be kept furnished
with a plentiful supply of loose
timber posts; and an important
point in systematic timbering is;
that as soon as the face of any
working place has advanced far
enough at any point for a post to
be set, it must be put up at once
without any waiting until the
roof is bad. The rule should state
this and also at what stage the
back timber should be drawn.
But there'should not be one
hard and fast rule for all seams.
The details should be fixed by
the manager to suit each diff erer-
ent district of workings, and as
much more timber must be set as
is required because we may have
a place where the roof is exceptionally bad for which the ordinary
rule would not suffice,
A more pleasing feature in
connection with coal cutting in
longwall is that accidents from
falls of roof or sides have been
considerably reduced, the reason
for this being that the coal being worked in regular parallel
slices, when the roof breaks the
weight is evenly distributed over
a large area, and consequently
"here are none of the sudden
bursts and bumps which cause so
many accidents from fall? of roof
and sides and the line of the face
usually cross the cleat of coal at
right angles and the timber is set
and drawn systematically.
The use of explosives for break
ing down coal at the face is great
ly reduced and in some cases dispensed with altogether, as the
face of coal, say 1500 ft. to 2000
ft. long being cut to a depth of
6 feet usually falls when the
sprags are drawn while the regularity and speed with which the
face moves brings the workmen
continually under a green roof
which is less liable to falls than
the slow moving faces with no
machines employed. The ventilation is simpler, the currents
being guided in such manner
that they give the best possible
results, while less face room and
larger outputs reduce the liability
to the accidents aforementioned
of which a proportion of the
yearly roll of accidents are due
to this cause.
Note. The special rule stipulating the distance apart at which
posts or stringers are to be set
at the face should be printed in
short form and posted on each
pit-bank, in the shaft bottom, in
the firebosses' and overman's
office. It may be in the following manner:
In accordance with special rule
(state no. here) in force at this
mine I have decided that the
maximum distance apart of posts
stringers and other means of sup
port to the roof on the workin
faces shall be in parallel rows of
not more tha.n (state distance)
between pasta, and the distance
apart of the rows of posts not
more than (state distance) apart,
or such less distance as the condition of the roof may require.

Labour Leaders Indicted.
Charleston, W. Va., June 9—
President John P. White and
eighteen other officials of the
United Mine Workers of America were indicted in the federal
court today on a charge of violating the Sherman anti-trust
It is alleged the defendants
conspired with the coal operators
of Western Pennsylvania. Ohio,
Indiana and Illinois to raise
wages in the West Virginia coal
fields, so as to prevent its compe
tition with the other four states
in the western market.
Those named in the indictment
are John P. White, presfdent;
Thomas Haggarty, Joseph Vas.~~y

dinite officers of district No. 17.
The indictraents charged that
the nineteen -men affiliated with

America did, in Kanawhe County
West Vergini'ii, engage in a combination and conspiracy in restraint of trade and commerce
in the several slates. The offence-
is said to have started September
first,1012 and continued since.
It is charged that the indicted
men have been agent members
of "an un-incorpo fated, voluntary organization ef individuals
as a labor union "known as the
United Mine Workers of America
having many thousands of members, who cons'.j-ired, by regulating wages, to control tho price at
which coal miiied in the state of
West Virginia could compete
with coal mines in Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois." The
indictments, returned today arc
said to be the first ever made

Tt was Indeed growing rapidly dusk,
whei. Nell and the Major left tlio little public-house am. made their way
cautiously back aloiu the EuBton Road
In the direction of Professor Wick's
School of Arms'.
So far r.s they eould see, keeping
on the other side of the road, and at
it respectful distance from the house
of their adventures, all appeared quiet
ln Us neighborhood! the door was
closed, and certainly no one was
watching from ti 3 front garden or the
doorstep, nor as they gradually drew
nearer, did lt appear that any one was
spying upon their approach from any
of the dust covered and postered windows.
I doubt If they followed me at all,
remarked Nell. It Is probably not the
first time i. trap has been laid for the
Professor, aud r I they can't want to
attract more attention than Is absolutely necessary from the authorities,
they are, I expect, letting the matter
drop. We had better no~. pass by j
the front cf tho house, though, or be
seen together If wc can help It. There
is the llttlo turning Dart meant, I
suppose. Let us see If we can get
round to it this way.
They turned down a lane which ran
parallel to the street where Dart
awaited them, and ln a few moments
came upon that worthy, with his nose
glued to the railings nt tie corner.
Any news, Dart? asked Nell touching the man gently on tlie shoulder.
No, sir, none, replied the man turning quickly. No one's been ln or out
of the house but the Professor's been
to the door once or twice to look up
and down the road.
He doesn't expect mo to come hack
again, surely, laughed Nell. So Rlvlngton's not turned up ycl- that's
good. Where ls this empty house of
yours? It's almost dark enough to
have a look at it now, Isn't lt?
That's the one, over there, exactly
opposite, the one with the bill ln the
window replied Dart, pointing.
They walked across and looked at
the house the man pointed out. It
was an ordinary little two-storey
building, probably letting et about
forty pounds a year. On one side of
It was a small printing and lithographic works, closed now for the day, on
tlie other side a pair of high gates,
leading to a private stable or yard of
some kind. The little street, a very
short one, and off Uie main line of
traffic, waB silent and deBerted.
The very place! said Nell, after a
moment's examination; we will have
a look Inside,
Tho Major had tried tie doors even
while Nell was speaking, and he looked round doubtfully at hla two companions.
It's rather a strong door, he said.
I don't suppose lt will give us much
trouble, said Nell, so long as no one
comes along. The street seems quiet
I've got a bundle of keys with me,
sir, said Dart, but it may be bolted.
Wc will see, returned Nell, seizing
the skeleton keyB his man handed to
him. Go down tho road and keep a
look-out in that direction. Major, do
you mind going to the corner and
tasting an eye ln tie direction of the
Tbe two men obeyed, but almost before they had taken up their re pectivo
' posts, a low whistle from Nell warned
i them that he had accomplished his
I tack, and they hurried lack. .
Neil was standing in the passage of
the house, with the door open.   It's
all right, he said quickly, there's not
a soul about.    This is just the place.
Now if we can only waylay Mr. Riv-
I lngton on his road to the Professor's,
j we  may  learn  enough  to  leave  the
matter in the hands of the police from
this time.
What Is your plan? asked Easton.
I    To catch hint when he comes antl
t drag him in here by force, if he won't j
\ come  willingly, and  take his  fingerprints.       If   they   correspond   with
I those we have, we will just shut him I
\ up here while we send for tho police, j
If they don't, and he is Innocent of I
Eda's murder, ho has still been guiliyj
I of abducting Violet, and we will keep!
i him here somehow or other till  wel
; can find out from her what the mean-
I ing of the whole affair may be.    But
In that case, we had better act with-
out the authorities for lhe present.
But you don't think she, Violet, ls
I In any way a consenting party, asked
the Major surprised, or that Bho can
I have anything to do wlih tho schemes
' this man may be handling.
No, 1 don't, replied Neil quickly.
I think he murdered Eda, and that is
the explanation of the whole affair, but
we cannot be sure; women are
strange creatures. Wo don't want to
bilng the police in until we are sure.
Easton frowned. But his brow-
cleared again ln a moment. He remembered Violet's frank, clear eyes,
and the look she had given him; and
he put aside all doubts, blaming himself for ever having bad them.
Come, he said quickly, let's get Into
our ambush. I am longing to lay my
hands on that scoundrel.
And they walked to the comer of
the 6treet.
The night had come on rapidly
now. and an if to aid ln the realisation
of their plans, a thick fog had commenced to descend, making lt difficult
to see more than a few yards round
tthom. Tho traffic had grown less
and tho footsteps of the occasional
passers-by could now be heard clearly
for some moments before they roach*
ed tho watchers. There was no object ln the three friends separating
or hiding, for lt would have been Impossible for them to be seen from
the windows of the School of Arms,
and silently they dr-w near to the
Profossor'B gate, determined that no
mischance should make them miss the
object of their watch.
Yet, after a time, Easton feared that
they must have m'ssed him, and began tj bite hla lips and look anxiously at the house where he now knew
Violet lay, for tie night drew on, and
no step halted at the gate they watched.
The attitude of hll companions,
however, gave him encouragement and
patience. Accustomed to prolonged
watching and inured to disappointment, both men waited patiently .leaning against the railings, apparently
oblivious of the passing hours, each
absorbed ln hl3 own thoughts, yet
ready, as Eauton felt, to spring Into
activity the r-.o-nent need should
And the need arose, as lt always
does, ln a second. Before cither of
the watchers could turn, almost before they could start forward from the
railings they leaned against, a tall
man, stepping silently ln soft evening
boots, loomed out of the fog, and was
upon them.
He gave a switt glance at tie three
watchers, Indistinct In the darkness
and mist, and put out his hand to the
gate In another Instant he would
have opened lt, when tho Major, the
nearest of the three, sprang straight
at his throat.
The new-comer had smelt danger.
His glirapso of tlie silent, watchers had
warned him; he was, therefore, to a
certain extent, prepared for au attack,
but behind the Major's rush lay the
stored-up resentment of a week's anx-
lctv and the memory of Violet's dark
eves. He had to go down, as a
stronger man still must have gone,
and down he went.
He fell, Indeed, with such a crash
that both Dart and Neil, cool hands
as they were, drow in a hasty breath.
But they did not hesitate, and the
next second they were upon him, and
had seized him.

Russian Peasants Who Believe   Thst
Christ Lived In Russia, Net
St. Petersburg, Russia.—An Archangel correspondent sends a moving
description of the sufferings of the
.Moldavian peasants who ln mid-winter folk ed tho f ...atical monk Innocentlus over 1000 miles from the
Podolia government to the Muromsky
monastery, on the Onega river, where
he was banished.
Ragged, starving and frost-bitten,
death-threatened them all on tho
snowy wastes whe; the Archangel authorities sent a rorce of rural guards
to stop their march and arrest their
leader and telegraphed to the Red
Cross Society, urgently asking for
medical aid. Some ot the pilgrims
had money In comparative plenty, for
before starting northwards they had
sold their belongings, but lt was of.
no avail to ihem in the frozen wilderness.
Their number was underestimated
In the lir.it account . I! was well over
1000, Including a great proportion of
women nnd children. They were sent
back to their homes by train In warned vans. The correspondent witnessed the departure of one party from the
station of Nlaudotna. Frost-bitten
cheeks, ears, fingers and toes were the
rule rather than the exception. Nearly all the pilgrims were begi-lmed-j
with dirt. Many women and children I
wera in hysterics. The occupants of I
one van were squatted on the floor
praying with open Bibles before them. I
The correspondent questioned the
pilgrims as lo the hold which Innocentlus had over them. Incredible as It
may sound in the twentieth century, I
lu a civilized country, the following
ls the gist of the replies he received:
The followers of Innocentlus knew
that Jesus Christ had appeared ln
the Onega region and not In Palestine. He was seized there, but was
taken elsewhere for cruclllxlon. Alpha and Omega in the Revelation of
St. John designated our Lord and Innocentlus (Reference has been made
in telegrams to the confusion of the
peasants between Omega and Onega).
Otherwise why waj there housing
room for 1000 persons In the Muromsky monastery when the monks only
numbered 100? This was the work
ot the Lord. They had been shown
a picture of Innocentlus portrayed as
Jesus Christ with a nimbus encircling
his head aud -a cress and chalice in
his hands.
The arrest of Innocentlus only served to confirm their belief in his divinity, and they recounted how, when the
rural guards came to arrest him, and
one of the guards tried to Are a blank
cartridge in order t.i Intimidate them,
his rifle had misfired three times.
A similar miracle had occurred previously at Balta, In Podolia, when an
ispravnlk (police officer) InsuUed Innocentlus and advanced towards htm
threateningly. Innocentlus looked
straight Into his eyes, and said quietly: Neither thy hand nor thy foot
shall stir, and the lspravnilt stopped
dead, as though paralysed.
On being confronted hy the rural
guards the pilgrims gathered round
Innocentlus, i.nd had to be dragged
away before the monk could be arrested. The vice governor of Archangel approache.' Innocentlus: Where
are you going? he asked him. I
am going to seek the new Zlon, was
the answer, and the crowd of pilgrims
repeated in song: W. are going to
seek the new Zlon.
Innocentlus' followers to the far
north Included his mother and five
sisters. When he w.-.s at Balta, he
attracted thousands of pilgrims to the
local monastery by the power with
which he was credited of casting out
devils. There Is an appalling amount
of lunacy In that part of Russia, generally ascribed to the peasantry eating
a paste of unripe maize instead of
leavened bread.
The Balta district became an absolute' Inferno of the mad, numbers of
whom were brought there in bonds.
This seems to have been the principal
reason of Innocentius' banishment.
Several Impartial Investigators maintain that there was nothing Immoral
In his teaching or his life.

Father Takinq His Daughter to School
One Exception to Rule
ParlB, Prance..—The old-fashioned
habit of a man and a woman
walking arm-in-arm in public has long
gone out of faihlon, says the Paris Excelsior.
In its columns a discussion on the
subject is taking place, especially on
the point: Should tbe woman place her
arm within that of lhe man, or should
he take hers?
Tho Bpectacle of people walking
nrm-ln-arm is, says the Excelsior, beginning to become quite sensational—
unless they are a father taking his
daughter to school. Whereas ln
former days the lady timidly placed
her hand within the arm of her cavalier, lightly resting on his Bleeve,
the up-to-date couple walk coldly aloof,
the man with both hands behind his
back, the woman with both hers ln
her muff.
There is a time when self-respecting
people may permit themselves to walk
arm-in-arm. It is when they aro on
holiday, ln the country, in hours of
peaceful reverie, whei. all things, in
nature seem to* hold hands. It 13 an
attitude which demands a certain Intimacy, a gentleness of gait and con-
templativeness of mien.
No, decidedly, says the Parisian, let
us not bring back this arm-in-arm
fashion to Paris. The picture is
drawn of a young man of a type which
ls seen frequently ln the streets, who
takes a girl's arm with a sort of Ju-
Jutsu grip, grasping her hand and
wrist, holding her elbow as in a vice
and by tbe leverage of his arm forcing
her to walk with one shoulder hunched
up and the other lowered. The object oppears to be that the man may-
propel his companion, much as a policeman might propel a recalcitrant
offender to the police station.
Tills ls clearly not to be compared
for gracefulness with the fashion of a
generation ago, when the lady hung
lightly on the arm of a strong and
dashing e- tort,

Victim of Three Clever Swindlers She
Accidentally Meets In Cafs
Berlin, Germany.—A Russian woman
Countess Skosslreffs, has fallen a
victim to three accomplished Berlin
swindlers, losing ln their company
jewelry valued at {36.000.
The countess, who appears to be of
a very unsophisticated nature, had
been spending some time on the Riviera. Returning home via Berlin, she
had some hours to wait for a train to
St. Petersburg, and she employed the
Interval by visiting a well-known Berlin cafe. She sat down at a table
occupied by a pretty girl, who told the
countess that she was an actress
waiting for her husband.
This gentleman soon arrived, introducing himself with a high-sounding
aristocratic name. Another man presently joined the party and he was
also Introduced as of noble and ancient
lineage. All were very agreeable together, and one of the men proposed
visits to other cafes and finally to a
cinematograph theatre.
At this last place of entertainment
ths woman lt was suggested, should
put ln the cloak-room not only her
wraps but a hand-bag to which ehe appeared very much attached. She parted with the bag, Bin said, with great
unwillingness, as it contained her Jewelry, but the Berlin nobles told her
that lt would be all right and that
they would guarantee Its safety.
During tho performance the woman
noticed that the your.g actress and her
husband had retired. She asked for
an explanation from her other companion, and was told that they wero
telephoning, but as they were so long
about it he would just step out and
see. He did not return cither. The
countess, growing alarmed, as one of
the noblemen had her cloakroom ticket, left the theatre, and was informed
by the cloak-room woman that the bag
had been given up on the presentation
of the ticket by ono ot the men. The

Looking backward from tha Wu gate
one sees an Interesting concourse,

He's Back at Work Again, After Suffering from the Paine, Nervousness
snd Depression that   Only   Kldnsy
Disease Can B.-lng.
Point Alexander, Ont., (Special).—
Mr.  D.  A.  Froncare, a well-known
and popular young farmer, living near
here, who has been a sufferer from
kidney disease for some time past, ls
back at work again,   and   he   says,
without hesitation, that hU cur* ls
due to Dodd's Kidney PllBT.
"I was always tired and nervous,"
Mr. Froncare saj-B, in speaking of his
Illness. "1 suffered from backache
and neuralgia, and my sleep was
broken and unrefreshlng. My eyes
were puffed and there wero dark red
circles around them.
"My muscles would cramp. I felt
heavy and sleepy afterwards, and I
was depressed and low-spirited, while
shortness of breath and dizzy spells
served to make life yet more miserable for me.
"I was always thirsty; my limbs
were heavy; and I had a dragging
sensation across the loins.
"My symptoms led me to believe I
had kidney disease, and I started to
use Dodd's Kidney Pills. I have taken
eight boxes ln all, and I am very
grateful for the benefit I hav* received from them."
If the disease ls of the kidneys or
from the kidneys, Dodd's Kidney Pills

Berlin, Germany.—Shots were fired
from machine guns on the upper deck
(the top of the gas envelope) of the
new German army Zeppelin airship
Z 4 during a war office trial trip near
Frledrlchshafen, recently.
Although the wind was blowing at
forty-one 1 -lies an hour tho gun practice was carried out to the satisfaction
pf a military commission. An official communique, which describes
the event as of 'epoch-making Importance,' etates that the trial proves conclusively that lt ls possible to work
comfortably and with accuracy with
machine guns, from the decks of Zeppelin airships. Captain von Puteau
tbe naval expert ot the Tacgllche
Rundschau, states that there Is room
for six machine guns on the top of a
Zeppelin airship.
The VosBlsche Zeltung states that
the greater part of the $6,000,000
Bbortly to be provided for the German
air fleet wlll be devoted to building,
with all possible speed, ten airships
of the Zeppelin type. It is expected
that five of the vessels will be Incorporated in the air fleet by the middle
of this ; -ar. The German admiralty

Now tlie session at Ottawa is closed, a glance over its
record shows it has been the most dramatic since confederation. The Borden government has been in power eighteen
months and during that time it lifts carried out more pledges
than the Laurier Governmant did in fifteen years of office,
Wheu, by the will of the people, Robert Laird Borden
assumed the responsible position of Prime Minister of Canada,
he was known lo be an honest, careful, conscientious man.
His years of training as leader of the qpposi ion— a thankless
task at the best—stood him in good stead nt the very outset
of bis career as the First Citizen of Canada. He assumed
office with his [lowers of statesmanship untried and unknown.
But the people trusted Robert Laird Borden. They knew he
was a safe man. They knew that under hisdisectipu the administration of public affairs would be clean and holiest-- two
qualities which had been sadly lacking dnrin;/ the Laurier
Mr, Borden during his so-far brief tenure of power has
exhibited qualities of statesmanship and leadership which
stamp him as one of the greatest Canadians, lie immediately
set about redeeming his pre-election promises. Dining his
tour of the prairie provinces iu 1911 lie had promised when
returned to power to build the Hudson's Bay Railway and
build it without allowing the spectie of graft to creep in.
His pledge in this regard lias been faithfully kept; the West
will find a Hew nutlet to the markets of Great Britain. 11
promised Civil Service reform and recently Sir George Murray
an eminent British expert on matters pertaining to tbe public
service, visited Ottawa and made aa invaluable report on the
prWem of reorganization of the Canadian service. He promised
to consult the British Admiralty on the question of naval defence. Within a few months alter the election he went to
England and consulted the Sen Lords, and today he is known
throughout the British Empire as the first Canadian statesman who ever lifted a finger to aid the motherland in the
burdens of empire along the lines suggested by the Admiralty.
Mr. Borden promised more assistance to agriculture, and
there has been passed this session, despite the thinly veiled
hostility of ihe Liberals, a bill providing for the expenditure
of 5i'10,000,000 on education of the fanner in matters pertaining to agriculture. The Liberals, who have long boasted they
were the friends of the farmer, tried hard to throw cold water
on this legislation.
But above everything else Ml'. Rordeii has shown himself
the aspiration of the Canadian
inula should no longer sponge
on her mother. He earned for himself tho thanks of every
man who believes that the Union -lack stands lor freedom and
a fair share in the burdens of Empire, In a word, Mr. Borden
despite extraordinary difficulties of the Laurier brand, has
shown himself to be a British Canadian whose conception ol
empire responsibilities is as far removed from the puny vacciln-
tioii of Laurier as day is from night,

Empress on Initial
Around the World
)ne of th-. latest additions to ths
magnificent licet of steamships ot the
O.P.R, has commenced us first trip,
starting out froi Liverpool for an
around tho world lour. The new vessel is the much talked of Empress ot
Russia which will be a valuable addition to tho already fine fleet of steamers now plying between Vanrouver and
the Orient. It was a unique Idea to
Inaugurate this around the world trip
on the Initial voyago oE the floating
palace, Instead of Bending the vessel
by way of Cape Horn, and needless to
say the res'llts justified the enterprise
as when the Empress left the docks at
Liverpool lt was with a full complement of Passengers, and thousands
crowded the docks to bid them, bon
voyage. Included ln the passenger
list aro many Canadians who left these
shores a few weeks tigo to bo at Liverpool ln tlmo for the sailing ol the
Empress ot Russia. The Empress of
Asia follows a little later. Beyond
all question tlie most notable merchant
steamers tullt in ths United Kingdom
during the past year were ths two
which tho Fairfield* Shipbuilding and
Engineering Company constructed for
the C.P.R. company's trans-pacific
service, which have received ihs titles
ot the Empress of Russia and ths
Empress ot Asia. Though outwardly
the vessels are Identical ln appearance there ls a difference In the Interior work, the Empress of Russia being

lmr.tka.urM-. pe.crih,; tlvc o"t lhe English style of the Georgian period, which ls particularly effective on board ship. The leading de-
niensions are: length 690 feet, breadth
68 feet, the depth 46 feet, the gross
tonnage being In the neighborhood of
16,000. A feature which catches the
eye of the man who haa but' a .casual
acquaintance with ships, ls the cruiser stern, which gives a distinctly naval touch, besides conveying the Idea
that a fast turn of speed can be attained. In point of fact the speed will be
18 knots per hour. Accommodation
has been provided for 1100 passengers
In all—200 first, 100 second and 800

crew will number 470, the total complement will be 1670. Elaborate precautions have been taken to secure the
safety ot all, and should any accident
occur there would be little chance of
the ship sinking, the vessel being provided with double the number ot water tight compartments called for by
the Board of Trade.
Coming to the goneral design, the
vessels have orlop, lower, main, upper
and shelter decks while above the latter ls a long combined forecastle and
bridge, the bridge feck being extended from stern to aide stanchions.

London Hospitals Appeal to Nation far
Money to 8ec.:rs Suppl"
London, England.—A week a ,o lt
was announced that 600 mllllgrammei
of radium were lying ln a s.-.fe at the
British Radium Corporation offices,
while five London hospitals were making pitiful appeals for more adequate
supplies. To quote Doctor Lazarus-
Barlow, of the Middlesex Hospital,
cancer laboratories, the huge majority
of our unfortunate patients have to die
simply because we have not the radium which would at least relieve their
pain, and might lu all probability'effect a cure ln a good proportion of Uie
The 600 milligrammes wlll soon be
800 milligrammes, the corporation expecting an additional 300, and there
is a grave danger that the whole quantity may be sold to Japan and ecores
of men and women suffering from the
horrors of cancer will be left to die ln
There b only a very limited quantity of radium ln the whole world, but
happily lt can be used again and again.
As Doctor Lazarus-Barlov/ stated.
more than a thousand years pass before its powers fall 50 per cent.
It 1» therefore evident that If these
800 milligrammes are purchased for
the London hospitals, the beneficlent
work will go on for many years and
even many generations to come, and
the philanthropist who secured the
radium would be earning for himself
the grateful blessings ot thousands ot
his lose fortunate brethn r.
It ls estimated that $64,000 ts required to tuy the whole supply. When
lt Is remembered how much anguish
can be relieved and how much despair
can be changed tp hope, this lo surely
a small enough sum.
At the Middlesex Hospital, the London Hospital, the Cancer Hospital, the
Metropolitan Hospital and St. John's
Hospital for Diseases of the Skin physicians are forced to stand ldl-J by and
watch the ravages of disease which at
least they could stay if this radium
were taken from the office sate and
divided among them.
The hospitals cannot buy lt themselves. They have not the money.
Who will help? The necessity is urgent. There must be many rich men
and women whose sympathies wlll be
touched and whose check books will
be opened.

that 1 bad come among tbe people ot
tbe town to raise f nnds for foreign missions, asked his assistance. Be replied that 1 had arrived at an Inoppor
tune time, since sn effort hsd been
started by the Iter, Mr. Swartout who
had also recently come to town to build
a cburcb. I suggested that Mr. Swart-
tut and I might possibly work together, since we were both tn the tame
service, and I would like Mr. Smith to
bring us together. He consented and
with tbe usual western hospitality Invited me to be bis guest during my
stay In the town.
Tbat same afternoon I was Introduced to the Rev. Mr. Swartout, whom
I it ones recognized aa Tbe Eel by t
description of htm I had aecured before leaving home. He was a rather
tall, sharp faced man, with black balr,
Whlcb bt wore quite long. His eyt

through It wltb axsuspicion which,
though not noticed by. others present,
wis not lost on me. But 1 st once set
about convincing the reverend gentleman that be had nothing to fear from
me, especially tn bis church building
enterprise, by offering tt work with
him in his own scheme.
"Let us first lay the foundation," I
paid earnestly, "by building a cburcb
for these good people. After tbe church
Is finished there will be ample time to
dosomethingin missionary work. For
my part I ahall not attempt to raise
any funds here, bnt will gladly remain for a few days and give yon all
the assistance ln my power."
I could see his thought la bis eyt.
At first he was disposed to get rid of

to him that he might throw upon my
rdsoulettrt certain work tor which ht
had not been educated. On tht whole,
waa tt not better for him to risk giving himself away to me and secure my
help than to risk giving himself away
to a number of persons!
"I ahsll be bappy for yonr assistance.
Brother Itidgeway," he said. "Too, having lived ln India, will be able to interest these people ln a way that would
be Impossible for me and thus Induce
them, to give freely to the building ot

"It will give mt great pleasure to

India and what we hope to do hereafter. Yon may be able to scatter them
to that they will bear fruit"

I resolved to keep my own counsel
■nd continue to do my work unassisted.
During the day I found a swift horse
■nd hired ■ boy to have blm at the ball
ready fnr me before the meeting was
over. Thst Is the only preparation I
made. At 8 o'clock, attended by my
host I sallied forth to give a lecture
on missionary work ln India, for a part
ot which I would draw on the material
I bad brought with mc, and for the rest
I would draw on my imagination. My
colleague called tbe meeting to order,
laid that he bad come among them la
order to Induce them to build a church,
and I was surprised to hear him state
his case remarkably well.
When he had finished he Introduced
me as a missionary Just returned from
India, and I began my lectni . Fortunately I have always had a : culty for

duty of giving liberally that those present might bave a place for worship

tens present to pass tbe bat Tbe collection was then poured on a table before the originator of the movement

kerchief and put It ln bis pocket 1 was
watching blm as he did to and was
probably the only one present who detected the cunning, covetous look hi
eould not entirely conceal,
While the meeting was breaking up
I grasped The Bel's band and told blm
that I wonld tee him tbe next morning. He assured me that he would be
happy to meet me, thanked me for my
valuable assistance In the good work
tnd hoped he might have an opportunity to reciprocate. I went dowa
before he did by a back ttalrcase Into
In alley, took off my clericals and appeared In plain clotbes. My horse wus
waiting for me, and when The Eel appeared I followed him as ht walked to
tbe house of his host
Owl-ig to his unblushing effrontery,
I presumed that he would get out of
town with the plunder Immediately
after the meeting, and for this reason
I bad procured tht -horse. Wben he
went luto the bouse where be bad been
staying I knew be would either slip out
during the night or remain In town
longer for additional swag. Tying my
horse to a post near by, I resolved on i
night watch.

door opened softly and t msn emerged.

Judged he wore rubbers. Growing from

for concealment, and I stood behind lt
Whichever way the man went he must
