with a L'indon teacher, who will
come here for a one-year term. This
practice was organized by the
Hands-acreiss-the-sea movement. This
is quite a sacrifice on this young

making a long journey and leaving

recommendation of the inspector then
obtaining permission of the South

Mr I). W. Grimmett, well known
local property owner, has written the
following letter tei the daily papers
i   the subject of annexation:
Mr.  Editor:*���Some eif us, in fact,
'he greater part of the people of
Greater Vancouver, are beginning lo
wonder whether we arc living in the
greal British Empire, or in such a
place as benighted Siberia. Isn't it
very striking the wonderfully anomalous conditions that prevail in this
western country in the way honor is
thrust up.e-.i some individuals. The
individuals I have in mind at the present time arc Messrs. McBride and
Bowser at Victoria. If ever there
were instances of swelled heads and
abuse of power thrust upon them,
these two take the cake.
The thing I have in mind and which
1 would like to write a few lines about
is the annexation nf South Vancouver.
I" some of thc later arrivals in Vancouver it will bc of interest to know
a little of thc history of the matter.

Though the moving picture theatre
is recognized by all nations to be the
greatest educator of the day, upon
every foot of film run through million picture machines in the Province
of British Columbia, the Provincial
Government  levies  a  tax.
In fact, the motion picture house,
in the eyes of the Provincial Government, is now regarded e,n the |
same basis as an ordinary bar-room
���As an object for heavy taxation.
Consequently, a great protest has
arisen from the moving picture nun
of Vancouver and  South Vancouver.
The order now is that te. the Provincial Government will be paid by
every movie man a yearly lax oi
$75.00, plus $25.00 for every him.licet

worth of Mr. J. Francis Bursill and
to the important part that he played
as imprcssario in the recent Vancouver Pageant was paid last evening at the Bursill Institute and Library by the people of East Collingwood, headed by Reeve Kerr of

During the evening a very attractive programme was rendered, the
following well-known artists contributing lo: Madame Lozier, who sang

which proved a most popnlar paraphrase. Mr. Bursill's name being substituted for that of Vancouver; Madame Clara; Madame Pratt-Stuart;

four or five hundred petitioners
from the Collingwood district, has
received notification from Mr.
Kidd. of the B. C. E. R. Company,
that within a few days a new street
car service to Collingwood East
will be inaugurated. The new arrangement wlil greatly simplify
transportation in the eastern portion of South Vancouver. A

from Powell Street and Main

There was an interesting quilting
bee held at the manse last Friday,
when the members of the Ladies' Aid
Society met to finish up the autograph quilt, on which they have been
working for some months. This
ti ii i 11 is a work of art, representing
much labor and enterprise. It is
composed of small red and white
blocks, and on each of the latter is
etched, in red, ii name for which tbe
sum of two cents was paid. In the
centre of the quilt is a large white
block, showing a sketch of the Presbyterian Church, outlined in red. The
ladies have already realized in the
neighborhood of $35 from the sale
of name space, and expect to sell the
finished quilt at tbe bazaar they will
hold this week. It is a beautiful piece
of handiwork, and its sale should add

Bonaparte   Himself   Said    to   Have
Been Shot by Sentry Scaling
Paris, France, June 27.���The capitals of Europe are shaken by tbe
astounding story being told among
the diplomats that the great Napoleon did not die at St. Helena!
Every student of Napoleon is
ready to declare on oath that the
Emperor died on May 5, 1821, in his
narrow chamber at Longwood, St.
Helena. A storm vvas rolling over
the island prison, and on ils wings,
muttering, "France���Army���.Head of
thc Army���Josephine!" the most dazzling genius of tbe modern world
passed out of life. To this history
posterity has adhered.
Scaled Walls.
According to this amazing story
he was the victim of a sentry's bullet
while attempting secretly to scale
a wall at Scboenbriinn, in Austria,
In the hope of seeing bis son. It was
Ilis double who died on that lonely
island in the Southern Atlantic���the
Emperor's devoted double who gave
up his life in exile that bis master
might live. Here is tbe way the
story  runs:
This double, b!s very image, bad
more than once been employed by
tbe Emperor tJ pose foi him in one
situation or another; sometimes to
test the truth rl some new story of
plot against thc great man's life���
plots more numerous than history
in the main is aware of. To the Imperial police the double was known
both by sight and by name, though
they wcre not always, of course, in
the secrets of his comings and goings.
Double  Gives  Self Up.
The day comes when, after Waterloo���and the drums of tbe Old Guard
had rolled tbe dirge of the last march
of the last army of Napoleon���the
fallen Emperor, the cup finally at his
lips, must sail, an exile, to the rock
in the Atlantic, But he docs not
sail' It is the devoted double who
gives himself in charge to Captain
Maitland of the Bellerophon (the
Bully Ruffian of the sailorman); the
double who settles down with Rert-
rand, Montholon, Las Cases, to the
appalling dreariness of St.  Helena.
And Napoleon! What becomes of
him? Napoleon, more or less transformed in style and appearance, withdraws secretly to Florence, in Florence he purchases the sh ip and liti.e
business of an optician, and forthwith enters on the most extraordinary phase of thc most extraoromary
career in Europe. He gains the
esteem of thc neighbors.
Disguise Poor.
Tbe disguise of tbe man of destiny must have lacked something,
for they perceived ill him a notable
likeness to Napoleon, and familiarly
bestowed on him that name which
bad   shaken   empires.
Then one day, on a sudden, Signor
"Xapoleone," optician, disappeared,
The little shop was dosed and shuttered; lhe little man so curiously
resembling the victor of Austerlilz,
the victim of Waterloo, no longer
stood behind his counter or gossiped
in his doorway. Florence, in brief,
beheld   him   no  more.
To the new king of France, however, Signor "Napoleone" before
departure, had addressed a letter,
the contents of which filtered somehow from the ilirone; and to buy
tbe silence of ;bose persons who had
become aware of this missive, Louis
XVIIt distributed among them a
large sum of money. Almost in Ihe
same hour a small and rather corpulent individual, fifty years of age
or thereabouts, is fired at and killed
by a soldier of the Emperor of Austria, while attempting to scale a wall
of tbe park of Schroenbrunn,
It was at Scboenbriinn, it will be
remembered by readers, that Napoleon's son and hope, tbe gentle young
Puke of Ueicbstadt, languished���
neglected by bis careless mother,
Marie Louise���in tbe most wretched
of gilded captivities. Napoleon, always pining for sight and sound of
tlle boy, bad stolen to Scboenbriinn
to see  him.
Not unnaturally, the affair of the
sentry's bullet made some stir at the
French Embassy. Not unnaturally,
the embassy decided to say nothing
whatever on the subject. There is
yet a little to relate.
The civil registers of the villajje
in Lorraine, where the emperor's
double was born, carry the following
legend: "Died at St. Helena," and
the date is precisely that of the death
of  Napoleon.
Let it be added that an English
lady of the aristocratic world, received in audience at St. Helena the
dethroned monarch of Europe (to
whom, In bis imperial days, she had
been presented al the Tulicries)
protested formally tbat she failed to
recognize him in the prisoner of Sir
Hudson   Lowe.
Who  Wrote  Memoirs?
This remarkable narrative of Signor "Napoleone," optician of Florence, and the Emperor Napoleon's
thrice-attached double, who dies contentedly for his master on the rock
in the Atlantic, is romantic enough
for the most imaginative pen that
ever yet has sought to transmute
fable into fact. But there is at least
one question to which the majority
if readers  would like an  answer:
Who, then, wrote the "Memorials
to mankind?" Was it the work of his

will be given te. matters left unfin
isbed last session and in connection
with which fresh difficulties have
arisen during tbe past ten months.
Among the subjects tbat will demand
careful attention at ihis year's convention may be mentioned the following:
"1. Dominion and provincial legislation   affecting   bib.er   interests.
"2. The repeal .ef tbe present useless alien labor law.
"3. Enforcement of the misrepresentation of monetary clauses of
the immigration laws all the year
"4. Consideration of the proposed
eight-hour  bill.
"5. Pronouncement on the administration of tbe workmen's compensation  acts in  the  various  provinces.
"6. Amendments to the industrial
disputes investigation act.
"7. Payment of wages on all railways fortnightly.
"8. Proposed amendments to the
Dominion elections act. abolishing
tbe $200 deposit now- exacted; and
making election day a public holiday.
"9. The case for labor on old age
pensions and pensions for widows

"In last year's convention call it
was pointed out that labor was far
from having the monopoly of organization and tbat against its interests
there are some of the strongest and
best equipped organizations in Canada and abroad. This grim truth becomes daily more apparent. Tbe consequence is that a proportionate increase in activity and watchfulness is
imperative. In fact, it wemld be highly useful if a part of the attention nl
the convention were devoted tej a
serious study of this situation.
"This is the time to elect your delegates. Let them be carefully selected. It is important that active, intelligent, experienced and above all reliable men should come from all sections. The friends of labor must be
'up and doging.' Elect yeeur delegates
at once. Do not leave tbat vital duty
to the last moment. This year's congress must be strong, beyond tbe ordinary, especially in tbe capacity and
strength of tbe delegates."
It is hoped to have next year's
convention in Vancouver. It would
bc an event of far-reaching importance to trade unionists in the West,
and we hope delegates will leave no
stone unturned in the attempt to
accomplish this very desirable object.

To reduce the cost of living at

encourage tbe production locally of
garden truck, and with this end in
view have made suggestions to the
City Council with regard to the operation of tbe market building. They
intend to get as many housewives
as possible to do their marketing at
the market building. It is expected,
in this way, tbat a material reduction
in tbe price of meats and vegetables
will  ultimately result.

President Foster at Trades Council.
President Foster of the Island
miners was at the last meeting of
tbe Trades and Labor Council. On
being invited tei speak, he said he
had heard that many people bad thc
idea that the miners wanted a general slrike of all workmen in lhe province, lie could not Bay whai the
miners would ask for. But he did
feel lhat the defeat of the miners
would be a blow to all organized labor
in British Columbia. The miners
had exhausted every effort to get the
government to apply tbe law and had
failed. Fifteen hundred Asiatics
were working in tlu island mines,
ami a large number of strike-breakers
also, who could not speak or read
English as required by the Coal
Mines Regulation Act. The miners
would carry on the strike as long as
they possibly could. He appealed lo
delegates to make the coming convention as large asp possible..
Trades Council and Small Holdings.
The Trades and Labor Council
wants the provincial department of
lands t'i undertake tlle clearing of
vacant government lands near Vancouver, so that such lands can bc
surveyed into small holdings and sold
on easy terms to workers anxious to
secure suburban homes. If the government would only do this, a large
number of working men. when not
earning wages, could use their otherwise idle time to the advantage of
both parties to put up small necessary buildings and loan tbe applicant
sufficient money, at small interest,
repayable on easy terms, to give holders an opportunity of utilizing their
labor and establishing real homes.
About 20 years ago the then govern-
\\ eel freens, I suppose yae wud
notice that the Coort o' Appeal owre
in Victoria went again the Hindus
in their attempt tae get intae Van-
Whether or no' they an' their coon-
sel 'II go ony further remains tae be
seen, but it seems tae mc that this
farce has went faur enough noo, an'
the suner the authorities mak up
their minds tae hustle them oot the
herbur tbe better '11 be for a' concerned.
1 dinna ken whether yaell hae no-
ticed that within the last week or
twa back maist a' the Hindus yae
meet on the street ate airmed wi'
big.  thick sticks.
"A nod's as guid as a wink tae a
Win' be.rse," an the longer that boat
stays oot in the herbur tbe mair thc
anger atween the white folk an' tbe
Hindus '11 be workit upon, until it
maybe ends in some skull-crackin'.
My patience rins awa wi' me when
I read some o' they
theosophists or glib-tongued Eastern
sky-pilots comments on thc ethics
(as they ca1 it) o' the questyin. 1
dinna ken very muckle aboot ethics
mysel   I I'll   hae   tae   consult   his   nibs
aboot that) but I ken d n fine line'
tac use ony stronger expression I if
they let ony mare Hindus in here it'll
sune be time for the white folk tae
lift their bed an' walk.
I'm no' concerned whether they're
brither imperialists or ony other kin'
o' fancy relationship. Thai's nae concern o' mine���some o' us hae closer
freens that we never even saw. Tbe
words empire an' imperialism cover
a multitude o' sins. We even hear
it suggested that tae turn the Hindus
awa is tac mak yae agin the true
nieanin' o' the britherhood o' man.
That pits me in min' o' a certain
temperance orator tbat wis jabberin"
awa on tbe evils o' drinkin' whuskey
(he had some nerve"! when wan o'
bis audience reminded him that they
were taught tae love their enemies.
"Yes," said the teetotaller, "but we
weren't told tae swallow them."
In tbe same category wud I pit
the Hindus. While they micht belong tae the same empire as oorsels.
yet that's nae reason why they should
come buttin' in here where they're
no' wanted.
Let  them  that  get   the  benefits  o'

entrance o1 they Hindus or ony ither
kin'  o' Asiatic  threatens  tae pit  the
"tin-hat"  on  ony  semblance  o'  comfort we hae at present.
If the government were at a' serious on the questyin they wud hae
shifted them long ago. But when
every saicond man in politics in this
90-ca'd super-democratic country is
crawlin' for a knighthood or some
ither antedeluvian honor yae can sum-
see hoo the wind blaws. They dinna
want  lae offend the mither country!
Noo, I'm no' alane agin the Hindus,
but  als i  am  I  agin  they  ither  slim-'
jims, the Chinks an' Japs.
Say what yae like aboot them, the ,
prime  motive  for  them bein'  here is |
because "' their cheapness an' abilitj
tae live on a third or a fourth o' what j
unv while man can.
They're  brocht  here  wi'  the inten- e
shun o' undercuttin' the white man in
the   labor   market,   an'   the  joke  o'  it ,
is that the folk that employ ihcm are
the  long-tongued  imperialists.
Noo it's plain lae be seen that neither the liberals or torys '11 mak
onything o' this questyin. They've
baith had their innin's an' they've
made a bad mess o' it.
The tories bae won the last twa
eleckshtttis on a white B.C. but sac
faur they bae only maele lhe muddle
worse confounded.
Dicky McBride is aye tellin' yae
tbat hc staunds for a white B.C.
Though he micht employ wan or twa
Chinks himsel is no' tae say h* loves
them. Dicky likes n cheap thing
jist as weel as the next.
Then again, though hc likes a
white B.C., tbe government o' which
be is the main gazoo, hae allowed
a thoosanel or mare Asiatics doon the
coal mines on the Island tae displace
white men, agin the regulashuns lhat
he  himself put on  the statute books.

Naw, naw, fellie workers, yae hae

FEW Canadians are familiar with the facts which
led up to the adoption by the Fathers of Confederation of the name, Thc Dominion nf Canaela.
Many names had been placed befure the men wlm
brought about Confederation for the new nation in
the making. It had been suggested that Canada be
Known as the Province of Canada. Other names put
forward wcre: The Kingdom of Canada, The Republic of Canada, The United States of Canada, and
The Commonwealth of Canada.
There was a deadlock among the Fathers as to the
name which the confederated provinces would bear.
It is said that discussion was very heated and that
an adjournment of the conference late in the night
found opinion hopelessly divided on the subject.
In thc morning, one of the Fathers of Confederation, a Presbyterian of considerable piety, conducted
the usual family worship. Before making the final
morning's petition, this dour Scotsman made a rule
to have a Bible reading. It was his habit to "Pet the
Lord choose," and he opened thc bonk. The first
passage before his eyes was Psalm Number 72, where
he found the words, "And He shall have Dominion
also from sea to sea."
After family worship, "the head of tlie hoose" made
his way back to the conference of the Fathers nf Confederation. He addressed thc gathering and he told
quietly how the Lord had chosen a name for Canada.
"He shall have Dominion frnin sea to sea," thc
seventy-second Psalm had stated. Therefore, there
was no more fitting name for the new country than
that of The Dominion of Canada.
THE celebration held at Bursill Institute this week
to honor the man who brought forth tlie Vancouver Pageant idea was but a faint expression of
the gratitude which the people of Greater Vancouver
owe Mr. J. Francis Bursill. It is an unfortunate
thing that in these times men of the ilk of Mr. Bursill
do not always receive the encouragement to which
they are entitled. - But for the Bursitis of history this
world would be a cold, clammy proposition, sans art,
-ans poetry.

calling upon thc council to seize all the cellars which
resulted from the raising of the Main Street buildings
to the new street level. The Voters' League is of
the Opinion that these cellars might be cut up and
used for drains, sewers, post holes and street cuts.
FROM his pulpit last Sunday, the Rev. J. R.
Robertson, pastor of St. David's Presbyterian
Church, discussed the Oriental peril in a manner befitting a statesman.   He said :
"As a Christian nation we have the right to control
proper immigration into this country. We have the
right, as a Christian nation, to exclude all undesirable immigrants. All elements which cannot help to
build up our Christian country, wc have the right to
prohibit entering the Dominion of Canada. We have
the right to exclude all criminal classes. W'e have
the right to exclude all classes which wc cannot assimilate���classes which cannot be digested in our system.
"If we cannot assimilate Asiatic per.ples; if we cannot maintain our national unity by admitting large
numbers of Asiatics; if we cannot maintain our national standards and ideals an a na'.ion, '.ve have a
dieiy to exclude such classes.
"I believe, on Scriptural grounds, that Israel, as a
nation, in maintaining its unity anil in doing its work
in the world, was commanded not to intermingle and
intermarry with the alien civilizations.
-"I believe, on Scriptural grounds, it is our duty on
behalf of the toiling sons of our own country ami
blood, to maintain the standard of labur fnr which
generations have fought. We must guard against
conditions which will degrade our present standards.
and we must exclude the hordes from the Orient from
our shores."
Mr. Robertson chose as his text the incident touching upon the naming of Canada, which appears elsewhere on this page. He denounced thc policy of taxing every Chinaman entering the country $500. Hc
could not agree with the plan of excluding the wives
and families of Hindus already in the country. Nor
could he agree with the hasty and impetuous plan of
passing orders-in-council. The only course, hc declared, was to meet the nations of the Far East on
lionorahle grounds, to show them respect and to treat
with  them  as  nations of integrity.
The Highgraders' Corner
WHILE a band of the unemployed hung about
the Municipal Hall the other morning, a load
of hay came in sight from up the southern slope. The
driver was a typical farm lad. Hc wore a straw
hat and in his teeth he held a wisp of timothy.
On that hay rack was piled three tons of sweet-
smelling timothy. The driver said that these three
tons and another ton had been grown on one little
acre of land down Lulu Island way.
Yes. The hay had been sold. Turner's Dairy or
some other dairy had paid twenty dollars a ton for
the load.   Sixty dollars for that one load of hay!
If a man had a hundred acres of land near Vancouver he could grow quite a few hundred tons of
hay on that land.    If it was the right kind of land.

The story of  Mexico's "Bandit'
leader, told by an  American newspaper man who has lived in Mexico for years and knows its men.
Hern, genius, murderer, bandit���
these are but a few oi the varied
designations applied tu Francisco
Villa by those wlm have come in contact with him in the course of his
spectacular career. 1 find it difficult to determine which appellative
describes him with meisl justice, for
during the three years uf my frequent association with him 1 have
witnessed episodes in which he
played parts that justify any and all
ul them. Indeed, 1 fear that it would
be futile tu attempt to portray his
character by means of epithets, for I
think him a creature of impulse whose
only constant attributes are an unbridled temper, an absolute fearlessness and a dogged tenacity of purpose.
On the future conduct uf this man,
such as he is, hinges the fate of the
Constitutionalist revolution in Mexico, for it is undeniable that it has attained its present scope almost entirely on his personal popularity and
prestige, after the high-sounding patriotic exhortations of Carranza and
bis fellow Utopians had failed tu bring
out em the field a sufficient number
of fighting men.
Remarkable as has been Villa' feat
in arming and equipping a force of
15,000 men with munitions captured
in battle from the enemy, still mure
remarkable will it be if he succeeds
in his present enterprise of following
the defeated Federals southward into
to keep body and soul together. The
yening Francisco, however, had higher
aspirations and adopted the trade of
butcher as one more suited to his
tastes and productive uf greater rewards. Afler a few years he had
acquired a competency, but was in
bad odor with the neighboring
ranchers, who suspected that he was
responsible fur the shrinkage of their
To avoid trouble, Villa migrated to
Guanacevi with his entire family.
Befure long he was again in difficulties, which culminated in his
shouting a local official whom he accused of wronging his sister.
During seven years the youthful
mountaineer led the life of an outlaw, continually moving from one
place tu another to avoid capture at I
dents uf any w|]0 could assist him
in   his   extremity.
A few days befure the meeting of
the rebel leaders I passed through
Villa's camp un my way to interview
Madera To my great surprise, Villa
proved lu be perfectly acquainted with
ray work, and instead of treating me
wilh distrust that characterizes the
attitude of must military men toward
correspondents, he showed me
through his camp and gave me a
fresh mount to help me on my journey.
Villa's personal appearance was
not what 1 had visualized. Hc had

ousness that is usual among men who
are outside the law. His demeanor,

\ aluable statistics showing the remarkable growth of the Province of

years have been compiled by thc government. The population has increased from 140.500 tu 675.000. The
railway mileage has been increased
from 1.053 miles to 5,356 miles. Cities
now number seven, whereas in 1903
there were but two. Towns have increased Ir..in 11 to 71, villages from
5 to 281, and rural municipalities from
2 to 295. Post offices have increased
from 14.1 to 1,485. In 1903 there were
606 schools, whereas in 1913 there
were 3,226. There has also heen
added 17 high schools and the University of Saskatchewan. During lhe
10 years period, the mileage of telephone lines has increased from 1,509
to 16,585. The growing importance
of the Province of Saskatchewan as
a centre of grain production is ably
illustrated by the fact that the area
under cultivation has increased from
1,117,000 to 9,692,500 acres, while the
cr��p has increased from 25,250,000 to
243,500,000  bushels.    These   facts go

development that has taken place in

revolutionary Junta, but they have
been unable to convince Villa of the
necessity of turning over the command of his army to some more prudent general, better fitted hy training and experience tu handle an enterprise of this magnitude. Carranza
and his counsellors do not dare insist. Too well they know that Villa,
in an outburst of temper, is quite
capable of renouncing even the nominal allegiance that be professes them.
They might rid themselves of Villa
by some sudden coup, but that they
fear that the army, accustomed to his
laxity, will refuse to submit to military discipline.
The more far-seeing revolutionists
view with alarm Villa's growing
power, which progresses proportionately with every battle that he wins.
They consider him a growing menace
to the cause iu support of which he
is fighting. They appreciate Villa's
past services at their full value, but
at the same time believe that a break
between him and Cararnza is inevitable. Indeed, they would like to
precipitate such a break, for they realize that if Huerta is ultimately overthrown they will stand little chance
of recognition by the powers so long
as Villa is prominent in their councils.
The blood of too many American,
English and Spanish victims cries
against him.
There is a subdivision in the Constitutionalist party tbat advocates the
secession of the northern Mexican
states from the central federation.
Carranza is reputed to have a leaning toward this solution uf the situ-
ation, which, its supporters claim,
would put an instant steep to the war.
To Carranza the military campaign
is an abhorrent, though necessary,
means toward overthrowing an illegal
dictatorship and re-establishing the
constitutional regime. To Villa and
his men the revolution is an excuse
fur the nomadic, laborlcss life that
they love to lead, license to loot at
will and an opportunity to wreak vengeance on Huerta. Villa is therefore unalterably opposed to the separatist plan. Resides, he realizes
that should a new northern republic
be formed, it would be influenced by
all things American, would be
promptly invaded by American emigration, and would eventually follow
the Texan precedent and.apply for
annexation to the United States.
Villa does not like Americans, and
knows that they do not like him.
At the present writing Villa has
just driven the Federals from Tor-
rcon, the gateway of the ""northern
country. Huerta is too good a
strategist to attempt to regain this
territory, and will put the situation
squarely up to Villa.
In the meantime, the Mexican people are suffering, the Constitutionalists have been praying, the wiseacres in Washington have been
watchfully     waiting,     and   thc   whole
mance and lis become part of the folk
lore of the Sierra, it being said that
no less than eighteen Rurales met
their death at his hands during this
Prevented by this persecution
from pursuing a peaceful vocation,
Villa turned highwayman and cattle
rustler, and soon gathered around
him a band of kindred spirits who
nursed grievances against society
similar  to  his  own.
Outlaws of this type cannot lung
defy the authorities unless abetted
by tbe inhabitants of the region they
infest, and Villa, realizing Ihis, confined his depredations to the spoliation of the rich, at times even sharing his booty with the poor squatters who kept him informed of the
movements uf the police.
When thc Maderist revolution
against Porfirio Diaz was hatching,
an emissary of the conspirators visited Villa and expounded to him the
gospel of the Equality of Man and
of Universal Suffrage as a remedy
for  tbe ills of the  country.
Villa at this time knew nothing of
politics. Porfirio Diaz had occupied
the presidency of the Republic so
long that he, as well as the majority
of tbe Mexicans, had forgotten that
the office is an -electoral one. The
outlaw was at mortal odds with the
government, but to him the government signified simply the Jefe Politico of the District of Guanacevi and
his force of punitive Rurales. Having been assured that the overthrow
of Diaz would bring about the downfall of his enemy, he promised his
aid to the revolution, and on thc appointed day moved to attack Chihuahua at the head of two hundred men.
A few miles outside the city he
was met by a Federal force, and in
the ensuing engagement was disastrously  defeated.
I was at this time covering the war
for a Mexico newspaper, and managed to get a snapshot of Villa and
his  men  in   full   retreat.
His first taste of the Federal
fighting powers seemed to dull
Villa's appetite for battle. Abandoning the field of war he led his men
to Guanacevi, where they spent the
next few months evening up old
scores. Tales of atrocities committed by him reached Madcro's ears,
and fearing lest the Cause be discredited, he disclaimed all connection with Villa and offered lo assist
the   Federals  apprehend   him.
Villa, hearing of this, set about the
gathering of a huge store of arms,
ammunition and provisions against
such time as he would be subjected
to a tremendous prosecution, Evading all encounters with troops of
either side, he dedicated himself to
looting ungarrisoned haciendas and
villages where the needed provisions
were  to be  found.
Early in 1911 Madero's main army
was defeated at Casas Grandes and
was forced to seek refuge in the
mountains, abandoning in its flight
all baggage and supplies. This was
Villa's opportunity, and he made the
most of it, sending emissaries to
treat with the Chief of thc Revolution, who was not then in a condition
to   look   to   closely   into   the   anlece-
thc hands of the Rurales. The record j long, ur the morality of their con-
of his many hair-breadth escapes and! duct, was obfequioui in the extreme.
daring   retaliations   reads   like   a   ro-j Indeed,   he   was   almost   Oriental   in
his  assumed   humility.
He affects the traditional close-
fitting leather costume, which sets
off his tall, powerful figure to advantage. His features, with the exception of the high cheek bones, show
no traces of the aboriginal blood that
predominate! in him. His head is
large and round, offering a marked
contrast to the elongated craniums
of the Mexican of his class. His
ears are large, and stand out from his
bead. His nose is small and bridge-
less; his mouth large and filled with
blackened, broken teeth; and his
eyes are wide-set and protruding, almost devoid uf lashes and perpetually liluud-sbot and blinking. He
seldom looka directly at the person
to whom he is speaking, but keeps
his gaze on the ground, except for
sudden sidewise glances that falter if
one catches his eye. And he does not
like to be stared eeut of countenance.
These details of appearance did
not strike me on the occasion eif my
first meeting liim. Ile was een horseback, and we ire a huge sombrero,
whose sweeping brim kept his features in shadow. On the whole, the
impression tbat lie made on me was
a pleasant one. and when I met Ma-
elerei a couple of days later I assured
him of my belief that Villa was a very
much maligned person. The future
president was very glad to hear my
favorable reporl, and was particularly interested when I vouched for
the existence of Ihe huge store of
munitions at   San  Andres.
Subsequently Villa was appointed
a colonel of the Revolutionary army,
and joining bis forces to those of
Madero and Orozco, marched northward tee attack Ciudad Juarez.
The battle of Juarez, fought within
a few hundred yards of American
territory, needs little recounting here,
so completely was it featured in the
daily press. Villa and his men attacked from tlle south while the
American Legion stormed the northern portion of the city. After four
days of intermittent fighting the gar-
sion surrendered, accepting Madcru's
offer to spare the lives of officers
and  men.
The defeated Federal commander.
General Navarro, was the same officer who bad routed Villa at Las
Escubas and bad gained Orozco'a
special enmity by repulsing him at
Cerro Prieto, at the end of which
battle he had executed all the rebel
wounded  and   prisoners.
Orozco and Villa demanded Navarro's life in reprisal, but Madero,
ever humane, insisted on the observance of the terms of surrender. In
the heat of the argument both Villa
and Orozco renounced allegiance to
Madero, who thereupon harangued
the army and won ils support. Generous to a fault, lie did not punish
the mutinous officers. Orozco never
forgave his temporary humiliation,
but Villa, instead of bearing malice,
conceived an intense admiration for
Madero, and ever afler was his mosl
faithful  follower.
After the fall of Juarez. Porfirio
Diaz and his entire family resigned,
and lhe triumphant rebels, in time-
honored   fashion,   fell   lo   quarreling
over llie spoils of victory. Of all the
more important "I the bailers, Villa

Orozco had been appointed chief
.ef the Rurale forces in Ihe north,
Inn aspired to be Secretary of War.
lialked in this ambition, he suddenly
started a counter-revolution against
the newly-elected Madero, with the
very elements that had been intrusted
tee  him  for  the  government  defence.
Villa, in thc meantime, had been
waxing wealthy in his wholesale
butchering business. Incidentally,
be had been increasing in his popularity by selling beef at extremely
low prices. The wealthy ranchers of
the region claim that he was, by this
method, disposing of thousands of
head of cattle driven from their
ranges during tlie revolution; but
they did not dare make any appeal
fur the return uf their property.
Orozco, who needed money for his
campaign, found them willing to advance the necessary funds on the
condition that Villa should be eliminated.
Thus, fur the firsl lime in his life,
Villa found himself arrayed on the
side of the legal government. Warned
of Orozco'a purpose, he again got together his band of veterans, and for
six months held his own against the
overwhelming forces that were sent
against   him.
Encouraged by the magnitude of
Orozco's coup, scores of discontents
throughout Mexico followed his example, and Madero was forced to
distribute his army so widely as to
debilitate the column that he hurled
againsl the Chihuahua rebels. This
force, which was made up of all the
available men in the government service, was ambushed and annihilated
at Rellano by the rebels. For the
moment it seemed that Madero must
fall, for there was no army to oppose
his southward advance. Then it was
that Villa, always ready in times of
stress, showed such activity in
Orozco'l rear as to prevent his moving forward until bis line of communications were  secured.
For two months all the Orozco
energies were bent toward the trapping of the wily Villa, but to no avail.
On one occasion Villa surprised and
took thc city of Parral and was immediately surrounded and attacked
by a rebel force twenty times as numerous. Twice the rebels attempted
to storm the city, and each time they
were repulsed with heavy loss. A
third time they hurled themselves at
the outposts, and entered without encountering resistance. Villa and his
handful had disappeared, but before
leaving  had  looted  the  city.
How Villa managed to win his way
Ihrough the beleaguering army is
still a mystery. A week later he
turned up at Torreon, where General Victoriano Huerta was mobilizing a second Federal column to send
against Orozco.
Huerta welcomed Villa rather cavalierly, but. acting under orders from
-Mexico City, gave him a commission
of brigadier-general, and put him in
command of the irregular cavalry
that formed thc advance guard of the
There was little fighting in the ensuing campaign, for Orozco was unable to stand against Ihe Federal
heavy artillery. The vanguard under
Villa occasionally met the enemy in
unimportant skirmishes, and Huerta
grew jealous of his subordinate's
good fortune in always coming out
ahead. On one occasion Huerta purposely delayed sending reinforcements,     hoping     that     thc     cavalry

(By   Sir   Arthur   Conan   Doyle.)
My    life    is    gliding    downwards;     it    speeds
swifter  to the day,
When   it   shoots   the   last   dark   canon   to   thc
Plains    of   far-away.
But  while  its  stream   is  running  through  thc
years   that   are   to   be,
The   mighty   voice   of   Canada   will   ever   call
to   me.
I   shall   hear   the   roar   of   rivers   where   the
rapids foam  and  tear,
I    shall    smell   the   virgin    upland    with    its
balsam-laden  air.
And  shall  dream  that   I   am  riding  down  the
winding   woody   vale.
With   the   packer   and   the   packhorse   on   the
Athabasca Trail.
I  have  passed the warden cities at  the  Eastern   water   gate,
Where   the    hero    and    the    martyr    laid    the

Local Company
To Drill For
Oil In Alberta
In every way a Vancouver company which will undoubtedly secure
the confidence of the investing public
is the Patcrsons Alberta Oil Wells
Ltd., which is now being organized
and shares in which will be placed
on the market within a day or two.
"As previously mentioned in the
columns 01 the Chinook, the company
boasts of strong directorate in whom
the public can rest assured that every
possible development will be undertaken in the effort to obtain oil from
the properties which have been taken
up. Included in the directors are the
following gentlemen, all well known
in the professional and business life
of this city : Dr. R. B. Boucher,
Judge Grant, Dr. Robert Telford, Dr.
George Telford, Mr. W. Innes Paterson, Mr. F. L. Leighton and }!x. S.
N. Jarrett.
If only on account of this strong
directorate the company should receive good support but when it is
mentioned that the holdings of the
company are scattered and that they
have property near wells now drilling and which are possible producers,
the note is all the more strongly emphasized that a judicious speculation
is presented. Assuming that oil is
not discovered in any one district
where the company has holdings
then it is a fair chance that it will be
struck in another part where the company also has property. The Pat-
ersons Alberta Oil Wells Ltd. have
not put their eggs all into one basket but they have taken great care
to select good locations in different
parts of the Alberta oilfields which,
even at this early stage, bear indications of becoming the greatest oil
producing area in the British Empire.
The company, which has a capitalization of $600,000, ha.s already secured 3000 acres and included therein
is 120 acres near the famous Monarch well along the well defined anticlines. This means that if the Monarch should strike oil in paying quantities, as it is believed it will when
the shot of r.itro-glycerine is fired,
that the Patersons Alberta Oil Wells
Ltd. will also stand a fair chance of
doing similarly.
Only a limited amount of stock will
be placed on the market, sufficient
to provide for the installation of the
necessary drilling machinery. As
soon as the rigs are secured development work will be rushed with all
rapidity and experts who have been
over the ground express the opinion
that this new company has splendid
prospects to get the oil.
