The story of the evolution of this

that Imt a decade ago Hrilish Columbia

and Ihul its credit iu the'money inaikel
of the world was absolutely nil, tlie

en effect to, and where they wero npt
met witb the cold rejoinder ."This is
our way of doing It.' "
"A striking feature nt' tlte present
your,." eontinuetj Mr. Buird, "wbb the
remarkable Influx of British capital
to the Dominion, and Ihu number of
visits from well known llnnnisiariiiag-
nates and business men that bail takun
plin'ii. Tim grand total of British
money Invested In denuda had been
officially estimated at £120,0011,000, of
which sum no less Iban £7(5,00(1,0011 was
invested in 1010. Iu fait,'HI por cont.
of the entire Canadian issues of thai
year had boen taken up in Britain,
und financiers of high omliionco had
stated that at loast £1110,000,000 nf British money would Ihis year lie Ihu contribution t'l.iiii tlio mi.ihs'i country to i'an
ailian investments.
Tho emigration policy uf the department of the Interior Inul never been
no vigorous as il nuw wuh. Under Iht)
superintendence of Mr. .1. Obod Smith
Iho huge lisle uf Hrilish isinigralinn
that formerly Sowed into tlio United
Htntes had bean diverted anil was pouring instead into lhe Dominion. He
could mil, of course, but regret the fad
that su ili splonilid material was being
lost to the old country, but os thurr
seomed, under present conditions, In
lie a surplus population iu many of our
industrial centres, and as litis population iiiui go somewhere, he naturally
preferred lhat it shoulil go In one of
our own colonies rather Hum to lhal
of a rival nation, bocause in tin: colonial Ihey were' not lost In tlm I'.'ui
pirn. If population at tlm mime extraordinary rale continued to pour
westward, and if ain-h a huge gulden
'gulf slrenm' continued In follow il,
nothing could arrest tbo progress of
Canada, nor prevent Inr frnm taking
her place us Hie Koli i Noor amongst
our colonies. It wus all important
that emigrants should lie perfectly
clear us to where Ihey were going ami
the conditions of life and labor- lo
which they proposed to commit themselves before making llm change, .lust
ul llm present moment there were tint,
in Ins opinion, unlimited openings for
artisans nf the skilled type, and there
was a danger that workers of thai
kind shoulil be ultras'lcl in uniieces
sary numbers by llm high rule of
wages prevailing, uiul might find tbem
selves in u foreign country, glutting
the labor market there iu piteous of
the prospective demand. Pot, these
who followed agriculture the position
was different. There were fine anas
of land lliul ha.l nnv it been broken
by a plough, ami there were huiislresls
nl farmers who .mil.I mil gel sulli
sient„ laborers ami ilotncsti.s ivere bad

es that the government cvleii.lcil an
unlimited imitation tin,I lor which tin;
best  prospects seemed apparent.*'
In 'conclusion, Mr. Hair.I remarked
lhal lyenly years beine, perhaps less,
when the agriculture of ('ami.la had
been largely developed, Ikeii would
s'oiiio the industrial boom, and instead
nt srrktng so much tor those who pur

"I'm sfrsld not, Bel|e-not for
some minutes. Mr. Swift snd I bays
to—to discuss Ur. Page's death."
Instantly ber euuntoiiiuico reflected
a deep concern.
"It Is true, (lien, Is it, tbst your
Uncle Is dead?" sbo uked in S hushed
Hia unc|ol For tho second time
tbst morning I wu staggered. Felix
Psge's nephew and Alfred Flustte's
daughter sweethearts! One lying cold
In th mli iniirtlerodl Is It any won
dsr thst I wu slrlckon speechless?
"Don't look so astonished, 8will,"
Hslllot wu saying. "Tbst Is only a
psrl of wbst I bavs to tell."
"But—Felli Psgs your uncle I" I
marvelled, u soon ss I recovered my
breath. "Look here, Maillot, it's not
Often that I'm so thunderstruck; why
haven't you told me this?"
"It's Irue," ho tald ehnvly; "he was
my mother's brother. Neither of us
wu particularly proud of the connection - nol enough to brag of It. I wat
unu ni n f, to toll you, though, Swift;
It is un essential part of my story."
He wheeled a chair up lo ono tide
of the tiihlo for tilts Fluetto    and I
made haste to perform a like service
for Miss Qeuevleve Cooper; au act
wbicb ..lie recognised with a slight
smile and oue of her friendly looks.
I    "Perhaps you and Qeuevleve   bad
i bettor   get   out of your wraps," the
young man suggested to Miss Fluettn,
i "becuuse I want   you   to hear all I
have to say lo Mr. Swift; It will take
some time."
j Shu wu nuw genuinely alarmed,
' and tbo handsome huel cyss
searched his face with au apprehension and ili' .ui lhat mode her love for
bim only too appareui. Most young
fellows, I huzurd, wuuld court any
peril (or tucb a look from a girl is
beautiful u Miss Belle Fluette.
And the blue oyei, too, mirrored
anilely; they turned to me In u
quick, questioning glance. I tried to
disregard Ihem—to ignore the presence ot these two pretty girls—and
iminim myself strictly lo what Malllol
had lo relate. It wu not easy lo do,
jtluc-i Mils Fluette's attitude toward
ine hud beconio not only openly accusatory, but mors tbau a Utile scornful; aud I feared, moreover, lhal I
should shortly lose the support uf MIes
pooper't sympathetic Interest.
' First of all, though, holh young
ladles wero anxious tor au account of
tins tragedy—a luk of which I relieved Maillot by relating briefly tho
details as 1 understood Ihem, but. of
course, adding no comment that might
bo construed u an siprtssion of my
opinion u lo wbo might bo responsible. Tbey listened attentively; bit
when I bad finished, Miss Flucllo
lurned to Maillot as If 1 were no Ion
ger lu the room. I noticed lliul Mlti
inui, i si brow waa gulhered In a
^ Utile frown--whether of perplexity or
disapprobation I could not dctermliiu
- und that sho wu looking fixedly ul
her cousin.
"Royal," suld Miss Fluette Hie lu-
Itsut I was Ihrough, "is Ihut -Is Mr.
Burke here?" Unless I was very much
mistaken. Ilie abrupt lowering ol her
VOlcS which accompanied this quel-
Hon, Hie mslilen narrowing of her
eyes, betokened s slrong dislike lor
the sccrclsry. So. then, Miss l-'lu.'iie
' wus acquainted with him, was she!
"Yes, he's here," Malllol  ubsetitly
! replied,   Theirs swift look-a Hash
of nmi. ihiui ilie:   paused befwets ibo
twu girls.
Holh pairs of eyes, Ihe brown and
tho blue, avoided mine—In' a studied

After all. I concluded, I wus glsd

Ills voice dropped, and be had ovcry

"I came to usk my uncle for (hi
Paternoster ruby," bs annuunced.
I merely walled, neither stirring
nor speaking; uot to tbo two girls,
howovor, who mado no pretonce of
concealing their ama|ement.
"You asked him lo give It to you"
gasped Mill Fluette.
Malllol laughed bitterly, looking
stiulgbi at me.
"I did," said he, u oue convinced
lhal be would nol he believed In any
event. "I not only uked him to give
ll to ms—after having stated my
rcouont—but hs promised to do so—
this morning."
Hs teemed to meuuro our Incredulity; to determine If Its degree would
warrant bim In proceeding. My own
couutenancc, I know, told him nothing; hut It wu obvlout tbtt ths
girls were utimllatlng bit startling
affirmations only with tho greatest
difficulty. I watched tbem curiously.
They know tbit young mm perhaps
holier lhan any ons else, snd tbsir
fresh youthful facss wsre t clesr Index to iheir thoughts. Both were
deeply Iroubled.
And now Miss Cooper, after a quick
tide gltnos at me, tpoke. Her volos
was remarkably sweat tnd soft, her
whole attitude Inexpreislbiy gentle.
"Hoyel," ssid sbs, "you are greatly wrought up; I think I know why;
Statistics recently compiled by tho
Commission of Conservation show thst
tlio death rate In Osnsdign coal mines
is much higher fhaq in any other °iv-
ilimid country. In 1B08, the year nt
tho Ferule disaster, the death rato per
100 men employed (above snd bnlnw
ground), reached the maximum rats
of 18.85. The average fate for the
ton years preceding same period wu
8.48.' Perhaps the worst aspect of tbo
situation is the faet tbst tbs death
rate from cosl mine accidents has boen
stoadily on tho increase in Canada for
a number of years. The minimum rate
of 1.88 wss reached in 1807. In 1909
Ibo rate waa 4.81, During tbe samo
limo there bai been tbo same stosdy
decrcuso In all tbo loading $uropoau
It would, of course, be unremonilile
lo expect tbut the less of life tnd property could be entirely done away witb,
hut experience haa shown tbat careful
iuyoBtigotion of tho conditions will
poiut tbe way to tbe remedying of
many abuses. That tho danger inherent
in coal mining can he largely eliminated ia showu liy the low ,constant
death fates in Belgium and Qreat Britain. Coal mine explosions are much
more frequent ill Canada anil tbo Unit-
mi HtiitcH than in any of tho tiur-
epean countries. Tho following example is exceedingly significant. In 1850
the fatality rate in the Belgium coal
mines wus us high as-the present Can-
inline dentil rule, while at tho prcsont
into il averages tho lowest in Ibe world.
This decline in lhe death rulo wus due
lo tbo combined efforts of the uiiuo
,.,'. is. 1.. the workmen ami the administration of Mines; to Iho diffusion of
technical and professional knowlodgo
ami lo iho administrative organization
for Iho scientific study of accidents.
Although the death rato in metalliferous mines in Canada is lower than
in the colli mines, it is much higher
than in any of the Kuropeun countries.
Tlie deutli rate in Canada for tbo por
ioi|q180Q-1808 wus ,'1.82.
Wltb the exception of the Kimhorly
diamond mines and Iho Transvaal,
where native and Chinos* labor are
employed, the fatality rate during thin
period (limn Willi) was contidtrsbly
lower elscwborc than in Canada. Il re
quires no disucssion In emphasize the
iinportuiicu of un inquiry into the
whole subject of fatal accidents in
llto mines of Canada.

nasi pf lio sod |6
Three mail, T, Corsey, Joseph Hobtirt-
son snd James Bowers, appeared before
tin msyor ssd MA, Foreman yester-
dsy momlng SR S charge pf conducting
tbemtelves in p disorderly fashion on
s hym Vallny. oar ou Tuesday evening.
The trio of defendants were represented by Ur, II. P. Buggies while the Interests of ths H- 0, I'loctrio Railway
Oo. were watched by Mr. A. E. Book.
Conductor W,.Aldrldge's evidence
waa to the effect ilml the three men
were transferred onto his ear at Moodyville and wero In no way troublesome
until tbey had reached the end of the
line, Then they complained that tliuy
had- got Into Um wrong car, saying
that they hud been given to understand
hy one nf the company'a conductors
on the wharf that was the Lonsdale car.
They, thersfore, returned westwunls in
the same ear. The witness, however,
only knowing that they liud transferred
to his cor at Moodyville, ronslilered it
his duty to collect thoir fares. Thoy
refuaed to remit samo, ui'ciiuipuiiying
, their refusal with unelioiee lsitgtiuge.
There wero in lhe ear ut this lime, out
lady and uiiout sis men. Eventually
the niiiii,niii'ii supported the romlui'lor
in his ,1. inn n.i for fares und these still
not forthcoming, a telephone message
was sent to the police ulti.'o from the
car Ilium, and the throe men were ga
thered in by the police un their ur
rival at tbe city ball . They had.
however, ut the lasl moment, consented
to pay their fares. In tlie opinion of
the witness Tlloy wore the worse for
Motorman W. Cowan eorroborstsd
the foregoing siuleiiieuls.
Mr. ,1. tl. Farmer, municipal clerk.
said that lie boarded Ibe car at lhe
district hall ami stood smoking iu lhe
vestibule. The three defendants were
then sitting jusl within the ear and
Mr. I'liiiini beard lia>l limpuuge wbicb
be thought would lie quite audible to
the lady in lhe car. He bad no know
ledge of Iho circumstances but the
mam., i iii which he was swearing maiie
Mr. Farmer imagine that il was for
tuimo real estate reason.
The three men each gave evidence.
They had only been on the north shore
a week Slid were comparative strangers.
They denied having sworn lo the ex
tent described.
Mr. Buggies considered tbut lhe mat
ler bad been handled in u high handed
laibiou. Tbe msn had apparently mis
taken tlie cars during the transfer
which hud occurred and were annoyed
lo bave found themselves iu Lynn
Mr. A. 0, I'erry, invited to speak by
Iht mayor, pointed mil the dilTenuice
of the two lines lo i.onsdale ami Lynn
Valley.   One was a straight line   and
