Two Women of South Wellington BruUlly Assaulted by
Other Women.
Mrs. Walker'and Mrs. Taylor,
wives of workmen employed by
the Pacific Coast Coal Company
at South Wellington mine, were
brutally assaulted Wednesday
afternoon by a number of women, while a number of striking
minus stood idly by allowing the
women to beat up without raising
a hand to prevent the assault.
Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Taylor
left their homes at the mine on a
visit to the school to see the
teacher on a matter relating to
their children who were attending
the school. On the way to the
school they had to go through
what is known as the "camp"
where the strikers reside. On the
way through the women w,ere
called "scabs" and other insulting names and on their return
home were set upon by a number
of strikers' wives, Mrs. Walker
being struck on the head with a
club and severely injured, necessitating her being attended by a
doctor. Mrs. Taylor was compelled to throw herself across the
buggy in which she was wheeling
her baby to keep the child from
getting injured as threats were
made "they would kill her and
the baby too". The two women
eventually escaped from the mob
and were assisted home where
they were given medical attention
The victims of the assault were
in a nervous state of mind over
the affair aud considerable excitement resulted at the mine when
the news of the cowardly attack
was made known.
Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Walker
are able to identify their assailants and. a number of arrests are
expected in the near future.
A very exciting game took
place on the recreation grounds

J. Taylor deserving special
mention. The score at the finish
was 5 to nil in favor of Bevan.
After the match a social evening
was held in the Hall which was
well attended.
Some time ago a team of footballers were to have played a
friendly game at Cumberland

cold feet?

The moonlight excursion from
Union Bay to Powell River on
Tuesday evening by the S. S.
Charmer was beyond all expectations. The weather was favorable and all told 225 took in the
excursion. The promoters of the
moonlight excursion were a few
young men of Cumberland and
Courtenay, who considered that
a pleasure trip to the enterprizing
town across the water would be
a success, and they were by no
means out of their calculations,
Sixty-four pleasure seekers left
Cumberland by train to meet the
steamer at Union Bay, and 161
from Courtenay and the Valley
took the boat atComox. In about
two hours run the pleasure party
reached Powell River, the town
of paper mills, and were given a
royal reception by the citizens,
about 250 turning out to welcome
the visitors. At 10-30 the large
commodious hall was filled with
dancers to the music of four piece
orchestra. The town was beautifully illuminated. The kind and
generous ladies of the place provided all refreshments for the
evening, positively refusing to
make any charge. The dance
Was kept up till two in the morn
ing, when thc excursionists
started for Union Bay arriving
there at 4 o'clock. The party
from Cumberland returning by
special train at 5 a, m„ ending a
very pleasant trip.
The young men who were the
means of getting up the excusion
say that the trip was such a
grand success that they will endeavour to secure the steamer
next month for a second moonlight excursion.
The tipple at the South Wellington mine of the Pacific Coast
Coal Company which was destroyed by fire at an early hour on
the morning of May 25th, has
been sufficiently rebuilt so as to
allow the mine to resume operations, the run of the mine being
placed over the tipple yesterday
and by Wednesday Master
Mechanic McGregor expects the
mine to be again in full operation
The fire on the morning of
May 25th completely destroyed
the tipple and that it has been
rebuilt inside of fourteen days
speaks much for the management
'and the men in their employ.
The machinery has all been installed on cement foundation,

Victoria, June 10 A general
strike of all workers in British

government not doing an indefi

threatened by George Pettigrew,
a United Mines Workers official
from Nanaimo, at thc meeting
which was held in the old Baptist
building last evening to hear
"Mother" Jones, the angel of
the miners over thc line.
"You may shorty hear of a
special convention of the B. C.
Federation of Labor being called,
he told the audience, which filled
the building, "in order to state
the attitude of organized laborjas
a whole to the strike in the coal
mines on Vancouver Island. If
the government does not come
through I will advocate a general
strike. I will make a special
appeal to the unemployed worker
10,000 in Vancouver and 3,000
here, to do something within the
next few days to compel the
government to act. If we can
persuade thc workers to revolt
at one time the malitia will be
insufficient, and the workers may
be able to do something." They
would go hungry if they did so,
he Jadmitted, but he promised
that the miners of Nanaimo
would assist those who assisted
them, and do it to thc extent of
$15,000 a week.

Hetherlngton hnd lost his memory.
Eventually the coroner summed up.
The jury was absent only an hour.
And when they returned it was
wllh a verdict of "Wilful murder
sgulnst Sir Qeorge Hetherlngton."
Two months had passed since Sir
George appeared before the local
magistrate and was committed for
trial for the murder of Oscar Soral.
Interest in the case was now* almost world-wide, but though there
were very few who believed In Hetherington's Innocence, the subject
never failed to bo the topic of ccn-
versation; men learned ln the legal
mul medical profession loved to argue
about it. It waB common property
that Sir George relied on loss of
memory as his defence. And there-
fore lt was agreed he Btood a pretty
loor chance of getting off.
. How many men would gladly forget
crlmeB they had committed, small or
preat! Iljt two peo.'lc* at least believed absolutely ln his .nnocence
-even while ln tholr heart of hearts
they objected to his line of defence.
And one was the old family solicitor,
Reginald Formby, and the other Peggy Melion.
Since tlie inquest Murray had kept
his opinions to himself. Ho realised
that much depended on his evidence;
lie looked up every ca»e on record
dealing with lost memory. For Peggy's sake he tried to convince himself
that Hetherington was innocent, but
It was not easy. The fac* that the
operation had had no effect went
ngalnst him; though without doubt a

Tliere are, of course, numerous records of temporary loss of memory being restored by a shock, just as there

I there might be some slight doubt as

prosecution to BOlve the uystcry.
He had over and over again in answer to questions by the counsel nnd
those interposed by the judge been

"1 don't know.   I don't remember."
Lady lletherington, his wife, was
one of the last witnesses called. Sh.*

nervous, but her very voice and bearing seemed to condemn hor husband.
To the casual observer it seemed as
though she were trying io shield him,
but, if that were so, she failed lamentably.
For her evidence more than that of
any other witness condemned him.
Peggy Mehon had b.een called and
her examination If brief could not
help being brutal.
Sir George Hetherington, a married
man, had made love to her. And when
she replied that she did not know he
was married, though decency and
tragic circumstances prevented any

scarcely a soul in court who had any

fate. Ills guilt seemed proved absolutely. There was direct proof, as

The young barrister entrusted witli
the defence seemed to realize lhe
hopelessness of his task when he
made his final speech, lt was so brilliant, so pathetic, so emotional that
he carried his hearers away. But it
did not convince them. His Until appeal was a bold one.

Young Sportsmen
Many and many a time every one of
us, wben out shooting ln the country,
has found himself one ot a chance,
medley party of all sorts ot persons,
with sll sorts of guns, who "ring tn"
on the shoot In a perfectly friendly
but often perfectly horrible way. At
the risk ot being thought rude, select
your own company—and only those
whom you know to be careful and gentlemanly. Especially select this sort
of company for your boy; and let him
start right, with some careful older
companions who will see that he has
a chance.   ,

to be a sp'endld thing for the young
marksman—the next thing after the

temper his enthusiasm, and do not allow his excitement to render him
careless with hi3 gun.

the courtesy of the field—to shoot the
birds tiiat come on his own side, and
never to be eager to clai*..i a bird on

It is hard for a boy to give up a bird
if he sees it fall ahead of his gun; but
he has gone a step toward being a
gentleman wheu he can toss the bird
to the other fellow and say: "Your
bird, sir." It it Is yonr purpose to
teach your son to le a gentleman and
a sportsman you will teach him that
shooting birds on the water or on the
ground requires no skill and Is not
good form. Teach him to pick out
his bird in a covey rise and not merely to shoot at the flock.
In ull this you will be teaching blm
the great laws of conservation and of
fair play. To that extent you are
grounding ltim in good citizenship
and starling lilm in as a man who Is
api to be just, careful and fair in business and social relations. The world

the terms gentleman and sportsman
meant much the same. They have not
yet wholly lost their flavor. The flrst
use of a gun by a boy is a time justly
held in some dread by the boy's parents. Careful tuition In this part of
a boy's education, however, removes
the danger and puts blm lu tho way

More Threats.
[From Thursday's Nanaiinn Herald)
Tlie Victoria Times last night contained a brief report
of a speech delivered in the Capital City on Tuesday night
by .Mr. George Pettigrew. According to Pettigrew, if the
government does not come through he will advocate a
general strike. He does not state how the government is to
come through. He left that to the imagination of his audi
ence. As a matter of fact he "cannot state how the govern
ment can come through. The government cannot do
anything. There is still trouble at the coal mines on the
Island, and there are still men off work, but there is no
strike. The mines are operating to the capacity of the
market, with more labor on hand than can be employed.
What is there then that the government can do? And how
comes it that Pettigrew should be looking to the government
to clean up the mess he himself made? There has been no
limit to the abuse he has heaped upon the government. He
has blamed it for everything that has taken place in con
nection with the strike and poured insults upon the heads
of its members. There is neither doubt nor question locally
as to who made all the trouble. Nanaimo has had over a
year of Pettigrewism, Ladysmith and Cumberland over
eighteen months. Who is the better off for it except him-
s.'lf? His object in Nanaimo, as he himself stated in
Ladysmith a year ago last May, was to put the city " on the
hog." He succeeded and now he would have the government
relieve him of the responsibility. But while he puts others
o.i the hog he puts himself on Easy Street. While the men
whom he persuaded to leave their work have been subsisting
on four dollars a week, he has been drawing a good salary
and having the time of his life. He did promise, or so we
are informed, that while the strike lasted he would share the
hardships with the rest of the men and draw only strike
pay. Has he done it ? Did he not tell them he was entitled
to his salary and insisted on getting it. It is not the custom
of trouble-makers by profession to share in the trouble they
make. There would be few troubles if they did. Naturally
also it is an easier thing to start a trouble than to end it. At
the beginning a couple of weeks or a month was to d*» it all.
Then a few months more were required, and always the end
was in the sight. Now after having caused it all, and gloried
in the work of his hands, Pettigrew would have the govern,
ment perform his salvage operations. He has his usual
threat at hand. If the government won't do whatever it is
he wants it to do then he will promote a general strike. He
will do more than that. He will make a special appeal to
the unemployed in Vancouver and Victoria. If he can
persuade all the workers to revolt at one time the militia
will be insufficient, and the workers might be able to do
something. We do not profess to be able to tell exactly
what Pettigrew here threatens to do. Whatever it is, however, it is something which the militia, in the natural order
of things, would be called upon to prevent but would be
insufficient to do so. In other words, with Pettigrew, it is
all a matter of the strength of the militia. Without the
militia there would be an end to law and order, and; provided
the militia can be swamped by numbers, there will be something doing. In view of all the criticism the local authorities
have been subjected to for lhe measuree they have taken to
prevent the possibility of disorder and preserve peace,
Pettigrew's statement of his attitude and intentions could
not have been made more opportunely. His whole speech
is a desperate confession of failure.
We heard a young man remark last week: '* The world
owes me a living." It is hoped for that young man's good
that he'll get the notion out of his head. . He never entertained a more foolish idea nor one which will bring him a
smaller measure of respect. The world owes the joung
man nothing; but instead he owes lhe world and society an
active, noble manhood, a steady, honest energy which will
enable him to associate with decent men and women in a
true manliness of character that will make his friendship
valuable and his presence and companionship desired.
Debts and Debtors
If we give a merchant our custom, we
have a right to expect him to advertise-
to tell us weekly in the columns of the
ISLANDER what he has for us. Advertising is shop news, designed to inform
us, save our time, and bring to our attention desirable merchandise.
Every retailer who is alive to the interests of
his cuBtomera has a message often many
messages fin* his customers concerning new
goorls, special offerings, and things that we
ought to know about. Customers and non-
customers wil! be attentive and responsive to
these messages, if they are delivered every
wi*"l< in tlie form of advertisements in the
ISLANDER. The way to get more business
is to ask for it.
Would YOU buy much or regularly from firms
that never solicit your trade P Do you not Bay
—" The firm that wants my business must come
after it ?"
Yet some of vou say, in effect, to your customers
- "We're here. If you want our goods, eome and
get them, but don't expect us to go after you.1'
It's a poor rule that doesn't work both ways.

Her Own Statement
Winnipeg, Canada. — " Eleven yearj
ago I went to the Victoria* Hospital,
Montreal, suffering with a growth. The
doctors said it was a tumor and could
not be removed as it would cause instant
death. They found that my organs were
affected, and said I could not live more
than six months in the condition I was in.
"After I camo home I saw your advertisement in the paper, and commenced
taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. I took it constantly for two
years, and still take it at times, and
both my husband and myself claim tbat
it was tlie means of saving my life. I
highly recommend it to suffering
women."—Mn. OniLLA Bradley, 284

Forest Notes
Minnesota has a forested area of
28,000,000 acres, the largest of' any
state east ot tho Kocky Mountains.
There are approximately 4,000,000
rt.res of timber land in New Hampshire of which about hnlf Is In farmers' wood lots. *
Forest fir* s In tho United States
have caused an averago annual loss
of 70 human lives and the destruction
of .".25,000,000  worth  of  timber.
Canada has established a forest
products laboratory in connection
with McGill University at Montreal,
on the lines of the United States Institution of the same sort at the University ot Wisconsin.
Tree planting on national foresb
has to be confined to comparatively
short Intervals ln spring and fall. In
spring it starts when the snow melts
and stops when the drying out of
tho ground: ln the fall it comes between the fall rains and first snowfalls.

In Transforming the Western Plains
From a Hunting Ground to a Farming Country, No Small Part Has
Been Played by the Roy,-! Northwest Mounted Police.
It has taken but 25 years t * .rans-
form Western Canr.da from the hunt-
tee ground of the Indian to a farming country, with' largo centres of
population, controlled by the white
race. In this march of progress the
Rjynl North-West Mounted Pollca, Jr
the "Scarlet Riders of thc Plains" as
they have become known in fictional
tcri'iiH, havo exorclred a guiding hand.
Prior to thc organization of this force
"the traders, trappers, half-breeds and
Indians were a law unto themselves,"
according lu the report presorted jy
Col. Robs, prior to tho organization of
tbe force. Lawlessness nnd disorder
rapidly gave way before thc mounted
polh*l», who soon acquired a name for
fenrlrssness and perseverance in the
execution of their duty.
Tho activities of tlie force extended
from the western limits of Ontario to
the Pacific Ocean. Tholr Influence
was even felt in tlie Arctic regions
when occasion demanded It. Today
regular forces exict In each of the
western provinces and in the Arctic
circles, and Eskimo, Indian and white
nan aliko respect the arm of the law
as represented in the mounted police.
The various costumes shown In tbe
photo taken at hcadquarterB at Regina and reproduced herewith, sho
the various uniforms in use from tlie
Arctic Circle down to the prairies.
One instance might be cited to show
tho respect of lho Indl.n for tho
police. A tribe of Indians on the warpath broke from the reserve at Fort
Swan River and crossed the interna-
t'ontil boundary Into the States. They
were rounded up I: a United States
troop of cavalry and brought back to
the boundary for delivery to tho
mounted police. One red coat was on
hand to greet the cavalry troop and
their prisoners, who numbered over
tt). When the American office.* was
dubious about banding the Indians
over the solitary Mountle—who was
none other than Sergeant Martin of
Reglna—he was promptly given a receipt, and the Indians wero brought
on to Fort (Ju'Appelle by this officer,
single-handed. It fell to the lot of A.
Ctewart, now of Reglna, then a sergeant-major, to escort, lone-handed,
the Indians from Fort Qu'Apelle to
their reserve, a distance of 12*> miles.
While such events as these are covered by brief reports, shrouded in
modesty, the details sometimes come
lo light. Anothor Instance worthy of
mention is that in which Sergeant
Gavine, some 20 years ago, was despatched to ar**est an Indian on a reserve near Fort Qu'Appelle. Despite
the fact that the** Indian had a. bad
reputation and was located among his
friends, this officer never swerved
from the path of duty. When passing
a bluff near the reserve Gavine noticed tbe muzzle of a gu . pointing
menacingly at him from some bushes.
Ho turned his horse to one side, and
was just seeking cover when the gun
barked. The shot went wild, but the
officer was quick to returu the Ore.
His aim was true for he wounded the
Indian, captured htm and returned to
headquarters where a sentence of five
years was meted out to the offender.
Tales of long journeys occupying,
weeks and perhaps months occasionally come to light, such as was revealed In tlie loss of the northern patrol,
of which Inspector Fitzgerald bad
In the early days horsc-steallng In
Western Canada was one of the worst
offences known lo the law. Professional bad mon thought nothing of
rustling off cattle and horses. As tl *
activities of the mounted police increased these characters gradually
gave way.
"Dutch Henry" was one of the .nost
famous of these bad men. He Is accredited with having been thc finest
shot In the west a quarter of a century ago. It is claimed that he could
toss a 60 cent piece high in the air,
and shoot It without fail. While characterized as a "fair haired boy," his
nerve and ability to shoot made him
a bad man of the worst type.
Sergt.-Major Stewart of Reglna. in
a modest way, described recently, bow
lie and a United States marshal captured this noted outlaw about 26
years ago. The chase occupied over
three weeks, "and wo didn't even
have a fight," said Mr. Stewart, "as
he had lost his rifle and six-shooter
whon his tent had been burned
Numerous other InBtancos of the
nerve ..nd porseverance required to
maintain order In the early days,
might be cited If space would permit.

Demand of King Albert in Correcting Abuses
Reforms in the Congo which were

gradually, and the prediction is made
that the colony ln Africa soon will
cease to be regarded as a burden to
Belgium, or as a source of criticism
fro"m the powers, as was the case under the late King Leopold.
The large deficits recorded each
year since the Congo was incorporated by Belgium have made financial
help one of the lirst needs. The government planB to grant this by endorsement of ail of the past and future debts of the Congo. It is also proposed to grant the colony a greater
administrative autonomy.
Tlio colonial government is to be
transferred to Roma, so as to enable
thc governor to receive the various
district presidents and to permit him

Western Flour Mills Are Increasing
Shipments to Asiatic Centres
The mills in Medicine Hat, Calgary
and Lethbrldge in Alberta are engaged tn supplying heavl'y the Oriental flour trade. Tho Ogllv..* mill at
Medicine Hat shipped a Hundred thousand sacks and tlie Medicine list Milling Co. 29,000 sacks, each oi which
weighed 49 pounds. The Elllsrn Milling Company of Lethbrldge is the
largest exporter ,-f flour to Japan and
China, with Ihe Medicine Hut mill a
c'.osc second. The Western Milling
Company of Calgary and the Robin
Hood Mills of Calgory and Moose Jaw
are also very large exporters to thc
Canada's exports of flour to Germany have more than doubled during
the past six years. In 1908 the
amount exported was 1,962,740 barrels, valued at 18,500,000. For the
past fiscal year the exports amounted
to 4,478,000 barrels, valuct". at nearly ?20,000,000.
The finishing touches are being put
on the new annex to Canadian Pacific
Railway Elevator D at Fort William.
A large annex will also be built to
tbe Grand Trunk Pacific elevator this
year. The Stewart Company of Chicago have the contracts In botb caBes.
Old Brit sh Warships Sold by Auction
Four superannuated British warships, famous in their day, were sold
by auction recently to the highest bidder. The most notable was the battleship Renown,* which had several
claims upon the public interest. For
five or six years she lias played the
unherolc role of training ship for
stokers at Portsmouth, but when In
18*o the Renown was lirst commissioned she proudly ranked not only
ns the most beautiful ironclad afloat,
hut also as the fastest vessel of the
British fleet, belli), capable of 18-i
knots. The Renown .-.lso holds a
unique position as the only modern
British battleship sent to the North
American station which she left tor
tlio Mediterranean when carrying
FlBher's flag. Th. Renown wsb indeed the favorite ship of the father
of the dreadnoughts, and Lord Fisher
cherished a silver model of her, a
gift from officers who served under
hltn. The Renowr. was also tlie vessel in which the present King and
Queen made their journey to India.
At the auction, sh. realized £39,000
The other ships sold were the Resolution, which brought £35.650; the
Ferte, which realized £18,500, aud
the Medea, which was sold for £10.-
375. The Scylla was also offered, but
the bids did not reach the reserve,
the best offer being £11,800.
Operation of Wireless Stations in the
Far   North   Not  Considered   to  be
Practicable—Port    Nelson    Station
Now Reported to be Working Well.
The department  of the naval service, which has control of Ihe wireless
telegraph system ir Canada, is not inclined to give varj  much encouragement to ibe proposal made by Explorer Stefanuson for the establishment
of a wireless system in the a\rctlc '*-*
j gions. It will be remembered that Mr.flng available for dlstribullo . jiuil the
.Stefannson   in   a  recent  communion*
t tion     suggested   that  a   government
j wireless station should be erected ou
! Herschel Island and that if surh Bta-
I tion wero now tliere eommur.ieuiton
might, be established wilh the missing
j Karluk. It was pointed out by lh>
department officials that while it
would, of eotirsb, be possible to cstpb-
lish wireless stations in the far nnrth,
their operation would not he pructic-
jable.    Herschel Island   is  now  •aome
! 2,000 miles away from the next near-
|est wireless station, and with ranges
I of mountains intervening the range ll
I operation  of  eacl*.  station   would   '.o
j comparativeiy   small.    Moreover,   the
Ismail sized vessel*: such as the Karluk, which go to the Arctic, have a
wireless     range  of  oLly   about   100
I miles.
I With coastal stations or Willi the
big and expensive stntions which have
been erected nt Port Nelson, The Pas,
etc., the government is now getting
exceedingly satisfactory results. Communication hy wireless from the Pacific coast station at Ksquimault is
now being had almost daily with Honolulu, and there hnve been days when
the Canadian station has bceu
touch clear acrosa the Pacific with
Japan. The station at Port Nelson
which has just recently been erected
is now working remarkably well. Communication between Port Arthur and
Port Nelson is Laid to be comparatively ensy during the night when the
atmospheric conditions ure favorable.
Messages are also being picked np at
Port Nelson from tie Atlantic.
It is Interesting to note that the
station at Port. Nelson was eroctod
this winter under conditions which
severely tried thc endurance and the
heroism of the men engaged In tb *
work. The steel towers are 200 feet
high and on the top of these the men
hud to work in temperatures ranging
from 20 to 30 degrees below zero.
The government contemplates the
erection of three other wireless stations in Hudson Ba.* and Straits oo as
to provide aids to navigation from thc
Atlantic to Port Nelson. Ono of these
stations will be erected nt Mancel Island near the Western entrance to
Hudson Straits. Tbere wlll be a station at Ash Inlet in Ilic Straits and
one on the Button Islands at the .'astern entrance of thc Straits.
The Poison system for trans-Atlantic wireless communication under
agreement with the Imperial and Canadian governments as lo rates will
probably not be In operation before
next summer.

"Vulgar Habit" of Smoking
In view o- the General popularity
of smoking, it is surprising to remember thnt until, comparatively speaking, a few year**, ago, smoking In public was not considered the correct
tiling. Mr. Gladstone never could
bear it; ho smoked only once, and
that was when he was the host of
King Edward—thee Prince of Wales
—and when, lo make his illustrious
guest at ease, ho ventured on a cigarette. Frederic Harrison, one of the
great survivals of the Victorians, retains the same hatred to tills day, and
wlll uot go Into a railway carriaco If
he knows anybody is going to smoke

A Missionary Hero
Bishop Stringer of thc Yukon is
one of the most heroic men of the
Church of England in Canada. Tho
record of his life bristles with stirring incidents, which read more llko
a romance than deeds of modern
days. !n 1892 he became missionary
lo the Eskimos on Hersche!l Island,
in the Arctic ocean. Hoi 3 he aud
Mrs. Stringer worked for years, and
here their second child, Herschell.
was born. Their lives were often ln
great danger from the savage Eskimos of those days. When Bishop
Bompas died In 1906 Mr, Stringer
became liis- successor. He had been
forced to leave Herschell Islan.1 owing to failing eyesight nnd bnd taken
up his station at White Horse, in the

about one thousand and nearly all belong to tho Church of England.
Old Fishing Claim
Claims amounting, to $50,000, growing out of tho seizure by Canada in
1887 by thc seines and seine boats of
the Gloucester fishing schooners Argonaut and Jonas II. French, were heard
at Washington by tho British-American pecuniary claims commission, lt
was charged that Ihe fisherman were

New London Station is Greatest Traffic Centre In the  World
Though by exterior comparison tbo
new Charing Cioss station in London
is l.ot in the samo class with the
New York Central o: Pennsylvania
depots, th,- claim lr advanced that, it
is now becoming the busiest traffic lu
the world.
By tha process of reconstruction
which bas been Going on for two und
a half years, there arc now four railroads, one above the other at Charing
Cross. The Bakerloo Tube Is at thc
bottom, the Hempstead Tube twenty
feet above it, the district railway
thirty fect higher, and tho Southeastern and Chatham at the top. Ia tho
course of a year these four systems
will run 900.000 trains over ono point.
It is estimated thot 15,000,000 passengers will bo handled yearly. Altogether 20 separate lines and routes of
traffic are available from Charing
Cross   station.
Secretary Madollck says that the
Loudon electric railways average
mote trains and a closer service than
any other railway in tile —orld.
The Bishop of Yukon Says Tbere Are
700,000 or 800.000 More Men Than
Women in Canada—Many British

Tho annual ince:ing o' tbe British
•.'.'omen's Emigration association was
held recently ut the Mansion house,
London. Last >ear tho association
dealt with 4,3.'lf, ppllcuilons, of which
Mil were from tn.lned nurses, and
:'5i from teachers. The number of
women emigrated wa 1,801, of whom
1,062 went to Canada. Tho association takes* only women of good character and capability, and they are
sent out lu parties under thc care of
an experienced matron. Tho association has its own hostel In London
and another in British Columbia.
Over 16,000 women have travelled un-
der tiie auspices of the association
since its formation in 1884.
Thc Bishop of Yukon said there
were 700,000 ur 800,000 more men
thnn women in Canada, if we encouraged our men to go to thc cverseas
Dominions, he said, we should also encourage women to go. Thero were
thousands of aliens flocking to Canuda and the problem was to make
them Brllish citizens. That pioblemi
could be solved, continued tho bishop,
If they got a sufficient number of
women if British origin to go to Canada as servants, as teachers, nurses
or wives.
Diffcult to Discriminate
Jlrs. G. L. Bcvar said all women
were good; but some were good for
anything and some were good for nothing. It w,.s difficult to discriminate between those whor.: it was better to leave at home, and those who
had grit and character. The; did not
send out cooks. They aimed at sending out educated vyonien who were
adaptable to new conditions and had
resource in meeting difficulties In >
new country. Educated women who
became clerks and typists and generally had about $25 letween tbem and
starvation, were sometimes ready to
go. In the Dominions they were bet-
ter.pold and n.ore comfortably boused,
and they had a far larger scope.
Page Croft said last year 70.000
""rltlsh subjects went to the United
States. That was a heavy loss to the
empire. It was a crime lhat no step
was taken In thi: country to persuade
these people to come under the British flag. Hundreds ot thousands ot
citizens of the United States wero going to Canad. and settling In the middle west. They became good Canadians, but It was difficult for them to
become good British subjects, because
thoy knew nothing of the British empire, he said. He wanted tbem to have
British wives, so hnt their children
could be brought np by British mothers wllh  British instincts.
