NEW SUNDAY LAW
Forcible Apai for a Fair
Recognition
SERMON IN ST. PAUL'S
Rev. T.J. Ferguson Outlines Movements Leading to Enactment
of Lord's Day Act.
.There was a good sized audience at St.
Paul's Presbyterian church last evening
to hear Rev. J. T. Ferguson discuss tbe
Lord's Hay Act which comes Inlo force
on the 1st of March. After reading
selected portions of scripture both as
lessons and texts upon which to show
authority for his remarks Rev. Mr. F'er.
guBon introduced tlie subject of the evening by tracing briefly the history of
llie movement which has led to the enactment of the present law. He
showed how it had been discovered that
encroachment upon the rights and liberties of the people had not been suf-
licleutsy proieced by laws at preaent in
torce as they were antiquated. The
movement had originated with representative merchants, manufacturers
and publicists. Out of this movement
arose an appeal to the premier of parliament for a new law which would be
worthy of the twentieth century. Mr.
Ferguson deprecated the idea that the
law is a sort of "Trades Union*' move-
ment among ministers to force people
to go to c.niieh. . He argued concluB-
ibely thai neither by direct reference
or by implication can such interpretation be placed upon the act.
He ciied the case of France, reference
lo which had been made by the premier
in his reply to the committee which
wailed upon him to press for the enactment of the law, showing how that
nation bad been forced to take steps
to enact measures winch stall stem the
tide of Sabbath immorality. The force
ol the speakers argument lay in the
tact that Canada is ouly doing what
France haa found il necessary or imperative to do late. Following up this
line the status of England was referred
to and briefly described. It was shown
that the present social condtion iu England upon the Sabbath were recognized
to be deplorable. Extracts from a pastoral letter written by the Archbishop
of Canterbury, the (Catholic) Archbishop ol" Westminister and tbe president of Uie council of free Evangelical
churches were read as well as the sarcastic ciillclsm of England's Sunday
Socially by Marie Correli. He showed
also how the house of parliament in
England bad appointed a committee to
report upon the question of Sabbath observance there and quoted from their
reporl to show tliat the spirit of ma
terialism and commercialism were
Irreateuing the life of the nation socially, morally and religiously by the
growing laxuess of lhe people upon tile
question.
ln making Ihese citations the speaker
said that his poiut was to show that In
tlle eiincmen of he present law Canada
has done only what lhe leading and
most enlightened nations of Ihe world
are doing to preserve the rights of the
people to one day of Felt In seven.
In pointing out what the Cuuadluu
acl Ib not the Rev. preacher was em
phatlc in his statement that It Is nol
an act to make people become nominally Christians and secondly tt ls uot an
act to compel people to go to church.
In slightly sarcastic tones ht said: "lf
ll. were the latter I do not know that I
should have a word to say ln Its favor,"
and he showed the Bcriptttral method of
appeal In Ihese matters.
In answer to Ihe question as to the
aim and spirit of the act he said: " It
Is an act to Interfere with those who
would abuse their liberty to the Injury
of Ihe common weal;" and he cited instances In which the interference with
Individual rights are In constant practice because the common weal demands
II. A few of the instances cited were
the marriage laws and sanitation.
Clause 2 of the Act (which tlle speaker
had before rim) was read, and while Its
prohibition wns sweeping, he went on to
show that there followed 24 exceptions
defining works of necessity and mercy
which may be performed on Sunday.
The very number of theso showed that
the legislators had  tried  to frame a
law which, while conserving the common good, -sought to make it broad
enough to cover all the necessities and
even frailitles of human nature. He
plead for an tqually broad appreciation
of the Act and said It simply meant to
show that If things went swinging along
at the present gait the result will be
that multitudes will be deprived of their
inalienable rights.
He dealt with some criticisms of the
Act, among them one by a much respected local authority, who had characterized; it as "grandmotherly and
pharisaiual." Afeain In slightly sarcastic tones he Bald: ".With all due
respect to the critic, he would lie sorry
to admit this criticism as just." Denning the terms grandmotherly and
Pharisaical he showed how this, if true,
meiuit "that the government had com
inltted an act of incredible folly, and
he was not prepared to admit that such
was tre case." He said, also, that if
these criticisms were right it meant
"that it would be wrong and foolish for
the government to protect the rights
of laboring men," and it meant further,
"that the government had spent a greal
amount of time In an attempt to ac-
complish something that was impos-
sslble."
After some further reference to the
minor details of the Act, such as Its
prohibition of Sunday games, boating
and the like, all of which, he aald, were
prsiliibiu 1 only when practised for gain.
He acknowledged the debtiof the people
to great corporations, but said he was
"glad the government had put lt into
the hands of the people to protect themselves from what might seem to these
corporations a necessity to exact from
Iheir employees more than they were
entitled to." This with special reference to their power to compel employees to work seven daya or lose their
places.
In conclusion he made an eloquent
plea that the act might be interpreted
in the higher light of what civilisation
means. In judging the Act consideration should be sincerely and cordially
given to what was the aim of the act.
He quoted a very ancient maxim of
statesman ship: "The strength of thc
law lies In the consent of the people,"
and he earnestly asked his hearers to
recognize this ln their estimate of the
Act. Instead ot looking for faults and
imperfections they should rise to an ap-
preciation of its aim and what it must
ultimately mean to our civllzation as
well as our moral safety.. He pointed
out tbe educational value of the Act.
inasmuch as it had already set people
thinking and asking themselves the
question "Am I doing right, by myself,
by my family, by society and by my
community?" In his peroration he set
forth the words of the Creator in which
it was claimed that the Sabbath law
Is a great gift and IU observance a
great privilege and he asked that In all
criticism or appreciation .of it be interpreted acoordlng to the spirit in which
the Sabbath day as a benflcient institution was conferred upon humanity.
GUNTER IS DEAD.

Passes Away Suddenly.

HOW IT WILL WORK
Lord's Day Act When
Properly Enforced
PROSPECTUS OF DETAILS
Secretary Rochester Answers Questions Affecting Minor Sunday Privileges.
Victoria, Feb. 25.���The Sunday Act,
which will come into force on March
1st will affect many residents. The
western secretary ol the Lord's Day
alliance, Hev. W. M. Rochester, who is
at present In Victoria in -company with
a number of the members of tbe local
organization, waited upon the attorney
general with a view to obtaining bis assent to prosecutions under the act provided a reasonable case is laid.
Cigar stands, confectionery stores
and groceries all come under this act,
but in order to prevent prosecution the
assent of the attorney general must first -
be obtained before a charge may be
laid or a case followed up.
Tne^e has never been a Sunday observance law enforced on the Island.
When British Columbia was elected
into a colony by the Imperial government in 1852, the governor, Sir James
Douglass, by proclamation, brought into
force the English Sunday act. When
British Columbia became a province of
the Dominion the law was continued in
force, but the law was never enforced
on the island.
A meeting ot the Lord's Day alliance
was held in Victoria yesterday when
It was shown that, hereafter, if the act
be strictly enforced It will be Illegal
for the Sunday school children to receive their little paper on the Lord's
day. This somewhat startling discovery
aiose out of a question asked by one
of the audience. Rev. Dr. Rochester,
the travelling secretary of the alliance,
who was the speaker of the evening,
had been explaining the regulations of
ihe act to govern the publication of
newspapers on Sunday. Not only was
it forbidden to issue a journal on the
Lord's Day, but he also pointed out the
sale or distribution on the Sabbath of
papers published in any foreign country was prohibited, it was then that
one oi those present asked Mr. Rochester how the law would apply to
the Sunday school papers. Mr. Rochester appeared somewhat puzzled, and remarked that this was a matter which
had been overlooked in drawing out the
act
Where  are   the   papers published,"
he asked.
"On the American side."
"Well, if that's the case, I'm afraid
ihat lt will be illegal to distribute them
oa Sunday," replied Dr. Rochester, and
a buzz of excited whispering rose from
the audience. The prospect of little
Johnny getting his Sunday school Bheet
through the post was a distinctly novel
one and opened up a long vista of
possibilities.
Sunday excursions were to be strictly prohibited. "I dou't know whether
you have had Sunday excursions in this
piovlnce or not," said Dr. Rochester,
but in Winnipeg, steamboat excursions
on the Red River have been taking
place every Sabbath during the summer
time. When the act is enforced there
will be no more of this."
Some member cf the audience was
moved to ask how this would effect
"tram companies running cars to a park
where there are Sunday band concerts."
"Such csncits would bj forbidden
under the act," replied Dr. Rochester.
"But mere ia no admission charged,"
chorused several voiceB.
"No matter, the bandsmen would
have to be paid. They would be following their cuitouiary avoc.tion on
the Sabbath," explained Dr. Rochester,
"and tliat Is prohibited."
Sunday newspapers, * the doctor
Btated, would become a thing of lhe
past. Victorians would have to read
their Sunday paper on Mends;, "I
know lhat it ls claimed," said he, "that
more work ls done for a Monday paper
on Sunday, than for the Sunday paper
on Sunday." This, however, he explained, was one of those cases where
the interest of the few must give way
before the intest of the many; and he
felt sure that those who might be Inconvenienced by the act would show
their magnanimity by standing in with
the movement for Sunday observances.
Coming down to Victoria, Dr. Rochester suggested that It would be in the
best Interests of the city to have the
bootblack stands, the confectionery and
tobacco stores and the newsstands
closed on the Sabbath. As to the sale
of liquor on Sunday, he was sure that
sufficient attention was already paid
to that.
Confers Grand Cordon.
Rome, Feb. 25.���King Victor Emmanuel has signed a decree bestowing on
George Von Lengerke Meyer, the newly-
appointed postmaster general In President Roosevelt's cabinet, the grand -cordon of the order of St. Maurlc and St
Lasarus as an expression ot appreciation for his work when United States
ambassador to Italy.
Philippine Cyclone. '
Madrid, Feb. 25.���A telegram from
Manila announces tbat the southern
Philippines have been ravaged by a cyclone and that 200 persons were killed
and thousands of others rendered
homeless.
THAW \m RESUMED
Attorney Jerome Again Places Evelyn
Nesbitt on the Rack���Revelations
of High  Life Continue.
New York, Feb. 25.���When the trial
of Haery K. Thaw for the murder of
Stanford White was resumed this
morning before Justice Fitsgerald ln
the supreme court, Distriet Attorney
Jerome continued with his cross-examination of Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw. She
was immediately called to the stand
and without any preliminary statement
the attorney started into his work. Mrs.
Thaw looked recovered after her three
day's rest and answered the first questions put to her confidentially.
Thaw brought with him from the
Tombs several packages of letters and
papers. Mr. Jerome, as on thc previous
days of his cross-examination, continued
to jump about from place to place In
the witnesses' Btory. He asked first of
all today if she had not had trouble
with her mother tn Alleghany, Pa, before going to Philadelphia to live. If
she had not run away with another girl.
This Mrs. Thaw denied.
"How long after the drugging in the
24th street house was It that the account was opened up for you ln the
Amsterdam Bank by Stanford White?"
"I can't tell how long, it might hare
been a month."
"When did you first meet Frances
Belmont?"
"When I was In Florodora."
"Before ycu met Stanford White!"
"I think so."
"Had you gone to supper with Fran
cis Belmont before you met White."
Mr. Jerome continued to hold the
menace of documentary evidence before
the witness, basing all his questions
evidently upon affidavits made by the
glrl'B mother and brother.
"No." She had gone to several suppers with Frances Belmont afterwards
but White was not present at all, except one. Mr. Jerome asked the witness it she had not often gone to suppers with two men, whose names he
whispered to her.
"I never went with them, but they
were present.'*
"Did they not on occasions take yon
home?"
"One took me home twice, and the
othe once, but there was always another
girl with me.' '   ���
"Miss Belmont?"
"No."
"These suppers were after the
theatre?"
"On Feb. 22nd, 1902, were you on
good terms with Frances Belmont?"
"I think so."
"After you left Florodora what was
your next employment?*       *
"With the Wild Rose in Phil*
ile'phia."
"Who was there with you "
"My mother."
"Do you know Angella Vincent?"
"Yes."
A letter and env lope was shown Mrs.
Thaw, who identified ihe writing as
t^at of While. The e-ivelope was postmarked Boston. Jan. 20th. 1902. and was
n.lilr-'sse] to Charles Hartnett, while
p-lvate secretary. It read: "Dear
Ha-tnett���Please telephone Mrs. Net-
b'tt to let you know whenever Miss
Evelyn decid's to go on her vacation.
Then hand this note to tbe Mercantile
Tru��t company.. Please n'tlfv Miss
Ne-hltt that on receiving word that she
Is to start en her vacation you will
Beand her the weekly checks for $25 and
an odlltioURl che-k for 1200."
By this letter and the Introduction
cf checks sl-rn'd both hy Evelyn Ne*
bti and her mothT, Mr. Jerome refreshed Mrs. Thaw's memory eo that
sh? said she hsd lived at the Auditorium apartments from Feb. 1 to April 1,
1902. Th? checks were given In payment of hotel bills and were drawn
against a deposit made In the New Am-
st'-rilnm bank by Stanford White to
Ihe joint credit of Mrs. Nesbitt and her
daughter. By producing exhibit 23, a
check. Mr. Jerome brought out the fact
that between April 1, 1902. and April
17, 1902. Mrs. Thaw and her mother
went to live at tho Hotel Arlington.
Mrs. Thaw was confronted by Dr.
CatlUon nnd Dr. Flint, but denied po��
tlvely that Bhe had ever seen htm be
fore Bhe had gone out with Jack Bar-
rymore. Justice Fitzgerald ruled out
the question when Mr. Jerome asked
Mrs. Thaw lf White had not urged her
have Barrymore arrested for seduction
MADE GREAT HAUL
Treasury Loses Nearly
Quarter Million
ENVELOPED IN MYSTERY
United States Vaults Looted of Vast
Sun by Clever Employees���
Detectives Disclosures.
Chicago, Feb. 25.���The Tribune today
sajns:
Somewhere between 1175,000 and
1200,000 were stolen from the local sub-
treasures* laat week.. Chief Wllkle of
the United States secret service, has
been keeping informed by telephone
and telegraph of every dedelopment ln
the case and will leave Washington today to take personal charge of the investigation made by the authorities
Secretary Shaw of the treasury department was told of the theft when he
reached here laat week and conferred
with Sub-Treasurer Wm. Bolden
Welcks and the secret service officers.
The money was stolen either a week
ago Saturday, th next day or laat Monday. The chances are it was abstracted
on Monday. Tbe loss waa discovered
on Tuesday. All the money taken was
tn bills of the denomination of 11000,
fSOOO and $10,000.
At first It was beUs-vat that there waa
some error in the bookkeeping. It wu
thought to be Impossible that audi a
large sum of money ecsM have been abstracted in face ot an th* safeguards
around Uncle Sam's strong boxes. The
ledger men strenuously deny any error
and an invesigatlon showed that there
was no possible clerical message to account for the disappearance Mt the caah.
This brought the inevitable conclusion that robbery waa the only explanation.. Just as certain was the deduction that the thievea wero employees of the sub-treasury and were at
that moment pursuing tseir dally tasks.
Every man who could have had anything to do with the case waa called Into Treasurer Bolden Weick's office and
put through an exhaustive examination
and a still more rigid cross-examination
by Captain Hotter, of the secret service. They stood the ordeal. All denied knowledge of the theft and protested their innocence. But it waa obvious that some one was lying.
The chances are 10,000 to 1 tbat one
or more of the employeea actually had
purloined the cash or had connived at
the theft by some outsider. Day by day
the investigation haa been kept op. Saturday there came a glimmer of light. A
faint clue pointed ln the direction of a
certain clerk, and that followed up, directed the fires of suspicion to another,
employee, a cloae associate of the flrat
man. The men were summoned separately. The suspicious circumstances
were the certalnity of detection and
punishment was impressed upon them
and they were advised to make a clean
breast of whatever part they had played
in the conspiracy.
One, thought to be the moving spirit
came down through the ordeal calm and
self-posessed.. The officers put him
down as Innocent or a master hand ot
criminality. The other, younger,
showed signs of breaking down. Just
what he admitted the secret service
men refuse to disclose, but It Is believed
lo be tantamount to a confession. The
admission he made started the lavesti-
gatlon Into renewed activity.
Half a dosen officers started out and

MORAL REFORM.
It is doubtless the duly of sill journals
having the welfare of the public at
heart to give Home prominence to the
Question of foral reflrm bul It ta dls,
tirictively the duty of religious journals.
The Western MethoHat Recorder, pub,
llshed at Victoria, evidently recognises
this und in a well written, though father
ambtgtous editorial in its February
number makes some comparisons be,
tween tbe attitude of ihe present k<>v
ernment and that of the opposition on
the question of local option. After
pointing out that the government is
equipped to grant good legislation and
while "there is reason to doubt thai it
wili do so," the Reoorder kocb on to
say:
"Moral reformers can hardly bs ex.
peeled to forget that in the last house
it was the Conservatives who opposed
locai option and the Liberals who
nearly all supported it. There were,
probably, special circumstances which
partly account for this, but it is nol
creditable to the predominant party and
though their Interests were notaffecttd
by it in the recent election ll will not
be safe for any party or politician in
future    to    trifle    with    the    growing
strength of moral sentiment   On the
other hand, the Uberal party lusl many
adherents in the recent contest because,
���while always posing ��s the party of true
reforms, thep hadn't the courage to
include a single moral rtform plank���
not even temperance���Intheir platform.
There is little organisation of moral
tientlmenl at present, but there are
many Indications that tlie public Is
beginning to look for moral principle
in public affairs."
We do not know what the Recorder
cun mean in stating that were special
circumstances which induced the mem
bers of the Conservative party to vote
against local option but we are of the
opinion that the commendation of the
Liberals in the local house is easily understood. The implied compliment is,
we fear, entirely undeserved. If the
Liberals of Hritish Columbia are any
more in favor of moral and temperance
reform than the Conservatives they are
of a different stamp from those of other
provinces.
Every one will remember the humiliating treatment of these questions by
the late Koss government In Ontario.
Forced by years of agitation and the
insistent demands of a large and influential body of temperance reformers,
well organized, they granted a vote on
a prohibitory measure which was overwhelmingly carried by the country.
Hacked thus, apparently at least, by
public sentiment, and perfectly safe in
doing so, what would naturally be expected of the Koss government would be
tbe enactment of prohibitory legislation.
Did they do this? Not at all.. They suddenly made the discovery that there
were doubts as to whether such legislation lay within the prerogative of provincial assemblies or was exclusively
lhe privilege of the Dominion parliament.
On carrying the case to the privy
council they found, with a feeling of relief, that the function was beyond them.
When Parliament Hill at Ottawa was
attacked   by   the   temperances   forces
backed by largely signed petitions It
at last reluctabtly consented to submit
a prohibition plebiscite, but in doing
so the government made the conditions
so onerous thut to carry the plebiscite
with the required majority proved to
be an impossibility and again the ques-
ton was conveniently shelved. We do
not know how long it will remain on the
shelf but it Will not be taken off by the
Uberal party until extreme pressure
proves the expediency of doing so.
We state these things, not at all for
the sake of arguing against any special
method of moral reform but to show
what has been the attitude of Liberals
In other provinces and in the Dominion.
In seeking reasons for the reluctance
of parliament to deal drastically with
recognized snd soccalletl moral evils
The Recorder states one of them succinctly when it says:
"However, we moral reformers ourselves, are not free from reproach.
There must be agreement as to what
we want and such united effort to secure it that when the authorities are
approached they will be convinced the
demand comes from not a few but formidable multitude of the people."
Since the admission is so frankly
made by the journal in question it is
unecessary to enlarge further upon it.
The other feature of the situation which
must not be overlooked Is that there Is
no general concensus of opinion on
questions of moral reform as there Is
upon political and economic questions.
It is not difficult to get together enough
men who agree on political questions to
form a strong party and to raise and
prosecute issues more or less Important. On moral reform issues, while
there is a general agreement that moral
ri'form is good, there is an equally
general feeling that It Is good for the
other fellow.There is a morbid dread
of interference by legislation
with what people are pleased to call
their individual liberties and this is
especially the case ln matters of temperance. It goes to show tliat such
measures of reform as are deslrel by
those who are in advance of general
sentiment upon the subject can only
be secured by reforming men from within, which is to say, by converting men
to the same thought upon the question
as the wouldbe reformer. The greatest
eras in temperance advance were wren
men used their persuasive eloquence to
create a healthy deprecation of the
traffic in aud use of strong drinks.
While we are in no sense opposed to
more advanced temperance legislation
we are of the opinion that it cannot be
secured by using the big stick to legislatures and parliaments. A more general recognition of this theory by reform workers and a reversion to old
time methods will create the sentiment
desired and better laws will come
naturally if they be needed at all.
LORD'S DAY  ACT.
The Lord's Day Act, an act to secure
the better observance of the day com.
monly called Sunday, comes into efftct
on Friday next and next Sunday people
who desire to obey the letter of the law
will find their liberties considerably
curtailed. Those people who have no
respect for the law will continue to do
us they please and perhaps take the
consequences.
In many respects the act is a desirable
and commendable one. In so far us it
secures men their natural right to a
day of rest���or we may say the day of
rest���It is good. The tendency of cor'
porations is to regard every day alike
and to exact for their employees
unremitting toil. That this is an evil
no one will deny and any measure
which will protect a man who labors
from being compelled to labor seven
days a week or lose his employment is
good. Doubtless the absence of such a
law has had a tendency to encourage
corporations to increase the earning
powers of their plants by forcing meu
to labor unnecessarily and its proper
enforcement will work for the good of
ail concerned by reducing this leniency
to a minimum. There are other
features of the law which are not to be
commended. We refer to these features
which interfere in what men have
learned to regard as their natural
liberties in the pleasuarable enjoyment
of Sunday. A large majority of Canadian
people have outgrown the Puritanical
ideas of the manner in which Sunday
should be kept. It is doubtful if the
people of any Canadian city running
street cars on Sunday would vote for
the abolition of the service. Yet the
law���in spirit at least���means that
these should be stopped. Its compromises on the question is a catering to public opinion which shows the difficulty the
Cramers of the law have had to meet
in securing what they desired aud yet
keeping far awuy enough from the
precipice to evade being plunged over.
That it will be geserally obeyed ln
the west we reluctantly disbelieve. We
fear the industries of the country are
such that, while the evils of Suiilay
labor may be reduced, they cannot be
abolished though we heartily wish it
were otherwise. In bo far as boating,
fishing, shooting aud the generally
indulged sports we fear it will be utterly
Ineffective.
As the question of Sunday newspapers
does not concern The Dally Canadian
as yet we shall not discuss than fealuru
of the law.

OUR OTTAWA LETTER.
Interesting   Queations   Asked  and   Answered in the House.
(Prom Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, Fob. 25.���Col. Samm Hughes
hau proposed a resolution declaring that
a full partnership union of the Empire
was desirable. The motion was brought
In for the purpose of obtaining an expression of opinion from members who
cared to discuss it, and was not pressed
to a vote. Cesidis the mover who elo-
puently supportd his motion, Mr, Smith
of Wentworth, and Mr. Lake of Qu-Ap-
pelle, sj.-oke strongly In favor of the
proposition. Mr. Horden also supportotd
the principle, though he held that (he
closer union would be reached by gradual development rather Ihan by ony
Immediate process. Sir Wilfrid Laurler
declared that there was no occasion for
action or change, as there was no grievance to be remedied. He contended
further that no close organization was
pesslble without free trade within the
Empire, which view was opposed both
by Mr. Borden and Col. Hughes. It Is
in fact opposed to previous utterances
of Sir Wilfrid himself. The only opposition speaker besides tlie premier
was Mr. Dssvlin, member for Nicolet,
lately Home Rule member for Oalway
in the Imperial parliament. He of
course vigorously opposed Imperialism
in any form.
The minister of public workB is still
a man of mystery. A newspaper reporter
has visited him in his health resort, and
found Mr. Hyman actively enjoying himseir, riding, walking, swimming, attending horst; races and other entertainments. This has been going on while
the premier has been Informing the
house that Mr. Ilyman was not allowed
even to read a telegram, lt comes out
rurther that the formal resignation of
the London seat received last week by
the speaker purported to be witnessed
by two men who live in London and
have not left Canada since Mr. Hyman
went away. Still further it aopears that
wlille Sir Wilfrid has been unable to get
any word from Mr. Hyman, the machine
In l.cnodon has had sufficient Information to prepare for election.
Mr. Lavergne, the Liberal member
who has been read out of the party,
gives notice of a question. He wants lo
know what method the government will
pursue to carry out the promise of Sen-
ate reform, and whether the measure
will be Introduced this session.
The postmaster general's bill (o prevent strikts by Investigation has passed
Its second reading. The minister him-
se'.f has showed that the measure ls Inadequate by giving statistics to the effect that only one-fifth of the strikes of
recent years had taken place In the
classes cf Industries affected by the
measure.
The    following   appointments   have
been made:
Mr. Druneau, M. P., lo be judge.
A   defeated  Liberal   member of  the
British Columbia legislature to be fair
woge officer.
John A. Chesley, former Conservative M. P.. who turned Liberal when he
failed to obtain the party nomination,
to be commercial agent In South Africa.

no way owning to defect in the machinery.
