word that tho people of i be entire province aro stirred as oarer before tilth
the seriousness pf tbo problems arising
from tbo wholosalo emigration taking

policy of -development as would not

Utt Blood of Northern Europo
Referring to tuo great popular movement of tbo sturdiest offspring of northorn Europe iuto western Canada, hi,
,1. Cloven of Winnipeg states that tbe
progress of tho Scandinavians who
have settled in Manitoba bat been nothing short of miraculous; and Hint he
for bis part intends dovotiug bis entire attention to advocating oven larger immigration from the countries lie
represents; as Scaiidinoviaiis, be says,
make tome of tbe best citiieui. Mr.
Cloven was one of tbo loading organizers of tho Noruiauualsget society,
ono of tho oldest and largest Norwegian societies jn Canada, and he bas
uow been approached by tbe Dominiou
governmeut as Canadiau immigration
agout for tbo Scandinavian eouutrics.
Tho fact is often overlooked, however,
tbat about 70 per cont. of the immi
grants into tho Canadian wost come
from tbe United States ;and in viow
of tbo fact tbat it is recognized in
official circlet tbat tbe proportion of
British settlers iu Ibe west should be
largely increased. Says the editor of
Tbo Canadian Gazette: "We waut from
Great Britain the young sons of farm
crs who are so helpless iu tbo Knglisli
cities, lo placo thorn iu training centres
aud then distribute tbcm on Canadian
And it bo* even been argued thai
it is tbe duty of Ihe British govern
ment lo tpond money in turning intending immigrants into citizens whom
Csusda can advantageously accept.
Sueb money, il is said, should be spent
in "i,lieges or schools, to be subsidised
by Ibe-British government, tbe Cap-
adiau governmeut acting ss trustee,
where people bsving nothing lo do in
England could learn the rudiment* of
agriculture , Surely Canada needs

gitlative ball ef tha parliament buildings at Ottawa are to be thoroughly

Every Canadian wbo faplt a pardonable pride in tbe upboldipg pf the

In aceordance wltb tbo findings of
the arbitration board, the ll. C. Tele
phono Company is to advance tbe pay
of itt list-men twenty-five cents per
day. Promptly upon arriving at tbis
decision, the company inform* its cus
tomers that because of tbis advanso in
wages it is necessary to advance tbs
telephone rates. Tbe rates for busi
ness phones are to be iucroased by
oue dollar per montb.
The Victoria Colonist has figured it
out that the increased income to the
Company in tbat city will amouut to
too times tbe aggregate increase in
wages involved apd.tbat tbo increased
income from Vanvoucer will amount to
approximately fourteen times tbo to
tal increase iu wages and enters a vory
vigorous protest against tbe increased
From tbe practical viewpoint tbe
lodgment of any protest would appear
to be a mere matter of form. In auy
cue ths users of telephones can ouly
keep smiling asd play the game,"
contenting themselvu with such con
solation u they may be able to ox
tract from tbe circumstance, for iu
stance, with tbo assurance of tbe com
pany tbat the advanced rales will not
be io high u thote already prevailing
in other provincea and countries.
It appears to ui, however, tbat our
esteemed contemporary goei lomewbat
farther tban itt premises would war
rant whoa it declares "We bavo'illus-
trated tbat it will mean very largely
increased income to tho company for
which tbe public must pay and for
which thay is turn bave no roosou to
hope for additional benefits." Tb*
Company bu not yet advised its cut
tomers u to what disposition it pur-
sou* to mtke of tke surplus income,
over asd abov* tbe increased wages
for linemen. It il not unreasonable
to presume that the compauy may de
cide to divot* thit turn to improve
niouti to tbe tervico, such u may in
a large degree reconcile telepbouo users
to tbe increased ratu.
If it were not to be cbargeablo wito
undue temerity, it might bo in' order
to suggest tbat the company use this
surplus for increasing tbe number and
tb* wtgu of tbe "Telephone Girls."
Tbi* would probably work out in many
wtyi to the improvement of the lervice,
would popultriu tht tervico of tbe
company witb tbit very numerous tnd

Have You Figured the Loss
From "Buiy" Signals?
Suppose a customer jl about to order something or
other over your telephone. The operator finds your
line or linei engaged. The customer must wait—or
order somewhere 'else. Maybe he chooses tp wait -
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy.
That means a possible loss of a customer.
The business man needs adequate telephone service for the accommodation of his
business and his customers. When you lose
customers through "busy" signals, it has
been proved that your telephone facilities
are inadequate.
People who get business make it eaiy for their customers to get them and have the number of telephone
lines their business requires. The number should be
determined by the amount of use at the BUSIEST
time of the day.

Contrary to the usual practice the Assessment Notices for
1912 have been tent to the regiitered owners of property
according tq the Land Registry records.
Up to the preient. purchasers have been in the habit of
notifying the city authorities that ihe property had changed hands
io that noticei of assessment and taxation ihould not go astray.
This form of registration of owner* has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by its solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it has sold and which has since changed hands two or three
The Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from it lhat they should take steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them so that they may be
come aware of the value at which they are being assessed and
pay taxes as they fall due.

careful consideration, that tba teat pf
wrong ie, in most cases at least, the
effect of tba apt upon others. This
may appear lo aopih persons an entire
misconception of tbo whole matter.
Wy wore taught tha Tab Oommawl-
monts when thoy per* children, and
thoy have grown up with tho idea
that these form the toil between right
and wrong, anil that tbey impose a duty
upon Immunity, whieh otherwise should
not exist. You may remember what
Kipling says of tbo land o*at o( Hue,
as a place "where there ain't uo Ton
Uommandmoutt," and possibly you may
have thought tbat tho duMei and obligations of mankind would havo boon
different if this brief eodo of ruloa
fur human conduct had nevor been promulgated, Hut thit Is a mistake. The
Ten Commandments did uot impose a
now restraint or a new obligation upon any oue. The. are not anything
moro than u memorandum sotting forth
man's duty to his Creator anil to bis
neighbor. It was just as wrong to
aleul before Moses came dowu from
Sinai as it was afterwards. Moreover, there wore millions of peoplo in
the worhl at that time who knew nothing of Iho promulgation of these
i'onmnm.hiieiii:,, just as there wero millions now who have nover heard of
tbem It is important to bear this' In
mind, because right in this city of Victoria Ihere are people, who look upon
rlgbl ami wrong at having some relation to religion, and oven as being
in Kome way conuectod with tbe
church. The thought that everyono
should get into his mind is lhat (here
is a fundamental difference between
right ami wrong, a difference which
arises al least so far as pur active life
is concerned—wo say uothing of our
relalions to the Creator—out of our
relations to each olher.
Thero is nothing new in tbis, nothing at all adverse to tho teachings
of Christianity. Tbo founder of our
faith Hummed thu whole law up iu a
sentence commanding us to do lo oth
crs as we wouhl lhat lliey should do
to us. This is Ihe louehstone; this' is
tho test of right. Hut tho tail musl
be applied ill Iheligbt of reason, that
is lo ray we musl eserclae our intelligence iu order thul wc muy fully weigh
Ihe conscipieiiecs of our acts. As was
said at the outset, things, may be
right or wrong according to circumstances. There are very few acts, if
auy, of whieh man is by nature cap
able whieh arc wrung of Iheuiselves. A
man abiue upon an uninhabited island
nm.oi very well do a wrougful act.
Ho may think wrongful thoughts,
ili.ni; lii- which if Ihey found expression iu deed would be hurtful to bis
fellows; but os long us be was alone,
it is difficult to think of anything
wrongful that he could do. Hut tbe
moment  another person  entered  upon
is solitude new obligalions wpuld
rest upou him, and the possibilily of
wrongdoing would  bceomc Immediate.
Man is a gregarious animal. The
li.'.-.'i slalks through Hie juuglu alone
or jerhaps wilh bis male; the eagle
lives in solemn loneliness nmi,I inoiin
lain emgsjthc crow, Ihe blackbird, the
pigeon seek Ihe eompuiiionsliip of
their fellows; the wolf seeks his com
radat) and so do sheep, cattle, horses
ami oilier animals. Man likewise seeks
his fellows. I'erhaps ilis the loitlucl
of self preservation lhal makes him do
so. If he ili.I not Ihe rate wouhl nol
endure, fur Ihe human infant is the
mosl helpless of all Infant*, Wc band
together for telf-preinrvatlon ami for
racial preservation. Hence we live end
ere happy iu all latitudes.     Tbe liger
ub is stronger al birth lhan the human
infant; but the liger cub would die
inni.I Arctic snows; the man child,
protected by his fellows, grows up to
.vigorous manhood. Thus wo will see,
if we think awhile, tbat social)' Is
necessary for Ihe preservation of Ibe
race, and we will also ace tbat the
family is necessary for Ibe niaiplcnancc
of sociely. Tbe family relation puts
* check upon more animalism and sc
ures for infancy its nocoatery protection. The tocisl relation nct-cssllatei
property in Ihingi. Tho law of self-
preservation demands the sanctity of
human lifo,
Thoreforo io tl..--.- throe essential
ideas; right of the individual to life, tbe
necessity of the family for racial pre
i en ui nm ami development and the right
of property in things, we bavo tbe
whole basis of law, and to transgress
Ibe laws wbicb aro tho natural espan
sion of these ideal it to do wrong, ll
may be added that tbt obligation of
worship of-.hit Creator is not herein
considered. That opens another field
of enquiry. Tbe only point aimed ii
to show tbat tbs distinction between
right and wrong in bwnan action is
not merely an ecclesiastical invention
but ia based on a principle upon tne
recognition of wbicb the wuy existence of tbo human race depends.

Among tlia Gharpke Indians the following itory at tV* r§bbit and the
tay wolf ns»d q'tan to bo told'
O»oa there was Wh a long *wsw)
nt drr weather that no mqrs water re-
mitotA in tbo creaks and springs ana
tbis animals belt) a eqsncil tq see wfist
coulil be dan*. Tfioy decided to dig
a, a/oil and all agreed tq help except
tlio rabbit, mhn mm a la«y fellow and
said;    t
"I don't need to dip fqr water- Tbo
dew pn tba grass Is euougb for me.
Tbo other animals wara nnt pleated
witb tb» rabbit'a remark, hut they
tst tq work to dig tbo well. Tbey
noticed (bat tba rabbit kept ilick aud
lively, although it WM still dry weather and tba water was becoming low
i* tbs wall.
Til* other animals luspecttd that tha
tricky rabbit was stealing the wator
at nigbt ,and thoy made a wolf nf
pin* gum and tar and placed it by the
well to frighten tbe thief. That night
th* rabbit came, as bs bad been coming every nigbt tq drink enough tq
last him all tbs neit day. When be
saw tbe queer black thing by tba well
be inquired—
Who's tberot
But there was no reply. Tbe rabbit kicked witb bis bind 'oot ao bard
tbat it wai caught in Ibe gum and
bo could not move and tbere be stuck
until the animals came for water in
tbe morning. Wbtu tbey ditcovorcd
tbt thief they bad great sport over bim
for a while and tbsn prepared to kill
him, But as soon at the rabbit wai
releaied from the tar wolf ho niauag-
ed to eicape.
Ths Cherokees alio tell thii story
about the rabbit and the terrapin :
Br'er Babbit was a great runner
and everybody know it . Tbe terrapin wa* a slow traveller ai everybody
alio knew, bot he was a great warrior
and uqlilusbingly boasted qf it.    The
terrapin also bad a gift of cunning
in no small measure, and as tb» rabbit waa always flaying tricks -on tba
other animals Mr, Tttrmip concocted
a praotlcal joke with WbWb be ffO
needed to Victimise tilt pld jpkur.
Tb« t*rr»pin challenged ths rabbit
tq * fpot rata. The d»y was flaed, tin
Starting  placo   agreed   upon.      They
war* tq run aorqss four mountain rid
gos, and the one tbst came out lint
pf tha and was,to b» th* winner qf tba
Br'*r Babbit said tq himself that
it would bs I. shame to take anything
so easy, so bo said to the terrapin
'Vou can't run, and qysrybody knows
|t, T'U give you tbo flrst rldg* and
tban yon'1' bavo only three tq cross,
■while I'll cross ovor four.
To thia the terrapin assented and
wont home tq arrange for tbe race.
He sent for bit terrapin friends and
frankly told them that he knew tbat
ho could not outran the rabbit, but
he wanted tp stop bit boasting. He
tben etplained bis plan to tbem and
tbey agreed to help bim.
Tbe day came aud tbe animate Were
all out tq too the race. The rabbit
took bis station at tho starting point,
and the terrapin went ahead aa Ihey
had arranged, and they coulil hardly
top lum on account of tbe tall gran.
When the word was given tbe rabbit
itarted out with long jumps up the
in,milium, expecting to win tbe race
before tbe terrapin coulil get down tho
other title ot ti. Before be got up the
mountain be saw tbe terrapin go over
tlie ridge ahead of bim.
He ran ou ami when he reached
the top be looked all around, but
could uot aee the terrapin on account
of the tall grass. Br'er Rabbit kept
on down the mountain ami begau tq
climb the second ridge, but wbeu he
looked up again tbere was the terrapin
just going over tbe top. This was
surprising and Br'er Babbit began to
take longer jumps to catch up hut when
be got to the top thero waa the ter-
rapib my to front nm ton third
ridge :
JM rabbit was uow getting tired
apd, nearly nnt of breath, but be kept
pn   down   (hp   niiiuntiiiii   and   np  the
pthpr ridge mitfi be got to the top
jplt ip (Imp to see Mr. Terrapin cross
tba fnnrtb ridge, and thus wip the
Br'er Babbit onuld pqt make anether
jump 'Ml fell qyqr qp the ground crying >Mn mi, mt. mi 'as the rabbit has
done ever since when he is too tired
to run any moro. The race w»» given
to tho torrapin, though all the animals
wondered how bo managed it. But
he kept atill and never told ,
It wai eaay enough, howovor, because all the torrapin's friends looked juat alike, and he had simply posl
ed one near the top of each ridge to
wait until tbe rabbit came in sight,
and then climb over and hide in the
long grtu. When the rabbit came on
be eniil'l not find the terrapin apd eo
though the terrapin wai ahead, apd
if he had met ono of tho other terra-
pint be would bave thought it wat
the samo one because they look so
much alike.
