In a letter dated January, 1911, discussing the reciprocity pact between the United States and Canada, William Taft, President of the I'nlted States, wrote to Theodore
Roosevelt,  ex-Preslder.-:
"The amount of Canadian products we would take
would produce a current of business between Western Canada and the United States that would make Canada only
an adjunct of the United Staies. It would transfer all their
important business to Chicago and New York, with their
bank credits and everything i lse. and it would increase
g-eatlv the demand of Canada for our manufactures."
To  this Colonel Roosevelt re Hed:
"Dear President,���It see ns to me that what you propose to do v.lch Canada Is admirable from every standpoint."

The   Ladner   Dramatic   Club's   pro-
luct'on   of, "Miriam's   Crime"   was   a
complete su<   ess.    All the parts were
well   acted   tuid   it   would   be   ��� '"������'������<<'���
to  single  out  any  particular  part  for
exceptional approbation.    Despite this
Mrs.   iLanvbert's   presentation   of   the
heroine   must   be   noted.    Mrs.   Lambert has a natural gift as an actress
ind  the  Interpretation  she gave  of a
somewhat exacting part has met with
unstinted praise.    The applause of the
large   audience    which    crowded   the
MoNeely Hall  was the best guarantee
bf   the   play's   success.    The   players
had  not only  their  parts  word     perfect���an   achievement that few amateur   aramatlc   presentations   can   attain��� but   also   interpreted   the   parts
alloted to them  with marked success.
The   Howard   Bros,   orchestra   was   a
notable   feature    and    the    incidental
music attributed in no small measure
to   the   success   of   the   presentation.
The staging and scenery  were exceptionally tine and the Ladner Dramatic
Club   must   be   congratulated.        Mr.
Weave was indefatigable, both on the
stnge   and   off.   and   must   be  relieved
to   find   that   his   tireless   efforts  mei

VICTORIA,  May  8.���The desirability of the Introduction ot some form
of religious Instruction  in  the public
schools of Victoria was the chief subject ot discussion at a meeting of the '
ministers ot the city, which was held
yesterday at the Y.  M.  C.  A.    Very
Reverend Dean Doull presided and the
following    gentlemen    were    present:
Archdeacon Scriven, Rev.  E. G. Miller,     Rev.   Dr.   Macrae.     Rev.     Dr.
Campbell,   Rev.   J.   McCoy,  Rev.   W.
Stevenson.      Rev.   T.    W.    Gladstone,
ar.d the Rev. R. A. McConnell. There
was considerable diversity of opinion
as to  what steps should  be  taken  In
approaching  the legislature  to obtain
a measure  that  would  carry  out this
object, and III the end it was deemed
Wi'se to lay the matter over until the
opinions of ministers In other parts of
the province could be obtained and a
representative    committee   formed    to
guide the movement.

1 Manitoba government had decided to

be equally as heavy a loss this year.
The farmers refused to patronize the
elevators aifter "demanding them at
conventions and continued to load direct  from  their wagons Into cars.

he says, "about one among the seventeen bodies was found wno iiad died
from drowning, in the case of tho
other sixteen, death was caused from
exposure and it did not ensue for

In (.rent Demand by the Residents of
Lulu   Islnml���Damages  Are
RTCHMOXI', May 7.���-The Richmond Municipal Council held a protracted session at its fortnightly meeting yesterday. Several deputations requesting water connections with the
main, and sidewalks were heard and
satisfied. There jS a great demand for
water connections throughout the
municipality and the Water Superin-
' tendent, Mr. C. F. Lockhart, ar.d his
men are taxed to their utmost to supply it. The influx of settlers consequent op the many subdivisions of
the Island farms into small holdings,
especially road the Alexander town-
site, Camble, is accountable for this
gratifying feature.
Ar. important  discussion took place
over a communication from Mr. Stein
outlining a  plan for the development |
of   Richmond   which   was   referred   to |
the   whole   council   for  more     mature j
Reeve   Bridge   presided     over     the !
forenoon   meeting  and   in   the   after- i
noon,  owing  to  his  having  been  delegated  to  attend the harbor extension |
scheme   meeting  of  Great  Vancouver
his seat   w-as   occupied   by Councillor
Joseph   .Shearer.    The  other  Councillors   present   were   Messrs.   Shepherd,
Fentm.an.   Gay,   and   J.   McCallan.
A deputation of ten ratepayers, Including a number of ladles, were
heard, requesting a 2-inch water main
and sidewalk on Xo. 17 road between
Nos. 4 and 5 roads. The council instructed the water superintendent to
do the necessary work in his department and granted the lumber for the
aid walk on condition the petitioners
execute the work.
A communication from Messrs. Livingston and Company, solicitors. Vancouver, was read in reference to the
proposed prosecution of Mr. A. Mitchell, South Vancouver, for permitting
a Chinese tenant to keep an unsanitary piggery on the western portion of
Lot 527, his property. It was explained that Mr. .Mitchell had no legal authority to interfere or stop the nuisance as the man had his lease before
Mr. Mitchell acquired the property,
and that flu- Chinaman, Sam Yung,
had been convicted and fined $10 for
the orfence already. Mr. Mitchell
was anxious to get the Chinaman off
the property, bat was powerless ln
the matter. This was referred to the
municipal solicitor.
An application hy F. Dobson ,_ Co.,
on behalf of a client, asking If there
would be any difficulty attending the
establishment of an abbattoir on Lulu
Island, was considered and the clerk
Instructed to request an interview
with and explanations from the applicant regarding the matter before final
Action for Damages.
A letter from Messrs. Taylor & Co.,
solicitors, Vancouver, was to the effect that they had been instructed to
raise an action of damages hy Mr. Leslie Overhaugh, Vancouver, for personal Injuries, sustained by htm or. the
night of I Oth April by falling off the
sidewalk into a dyke leading to the
depot, a distance of six feet, breaking
his wrkst and straining his arm
It was claimed that the accident
happened through the negligence of
the council in not having the dyke
fenced and the locality sufficiently
lighted. The letter concluded with a
query as to what the council proposed
in the nature of a settlement.
Councillor Fentman expressed himself appalled at the Idea Involved in
���fencing all the dykes on Lulu Island.
The matter was also referred to the
solicitor of the municipality.
Water Extensions.
Mr. C. F, Lockhart, the water superintendent's important report was
submitted and approved. It showed
that twenty-elgh new connections had
been installed during April. Extensions on Mitchell and Edwards Islands

necessitating Ihe services of a diver

break was covered by 12 feet of water

Come, See and Try On
Woman and the Home.
A house without a woman In it
amounts to very little. It may be a
sojourning place or a hermitage or a
makeshift, but lt cannot be a home.
Woman is forever the center of home,
nud home ls forever the center of
things. Christian Ity looks back toward
the home at Nazareth, nnd reverent
painters portray the holy child ln Its
mother's arms for countless shrines to
enthrone. National glory rests upon
the pillars of the home. Business*
gathers its millions duly to adoru
chosen homes in the end, and each
toller at the bottom strives for his
dream, too. of a happiness between
four walls with wife and child.
Woman at present, however, ls
tempted to decentralize herself. The
kingdoms of the earth and the glory of
them Beem to her to be offered for her
choice. She desires to work for hire,
as men do, and to prove herself In industry outside the houses. All this is
well enough If she realizes ln time
that home ls better still. But the modern world ts full of decentralized women who either cannot get back to the
center of things or have lost the wish
to do so. Even If they marry they do
not want to be "tied down" to bonse
and children. And lt ls perfectly pos
slbl3 ln tbe flrst part of their lives to
remain out from the center and still
find life worth while.
But after thirty years or so the decentralized woman must lose by It
Sbe ls not the soul of anything. Sbe
ls not vitally necessary anywhere.
Her life ls essentially shallow. The
house without a woman in it, the woman who ls not making a home for
others���these mean life without a cen
ter. life gone awry. If It cannot be
helped It Is sad enough. If lt can be
helped ls it not the worst and bitterest kind of mistake?���Harper's Bazar

shake their heads and say:
