Assembling at  their lodge room at ;
6:30 n.m.     members     of the Masonic 1
' 1
lodge,  'IS  strong,  attended  service at •
St. Peter's church on Sunday even - 1
ing. Wearing the regalia of the order they marched in a body to the ,
church, where seats had been reserv-|
ed for them. The church was crowd-
id, every available seat being taken, 1
and an appropriate sermon was (
preached by Rev. C. A. Procunier.
Mr. Procunier took us his text St.
John XVII.. IT, ."Sanctify them
through Thy Truth, Thy Word is1
Truth." He said that it was au
honor to welcome the lodge to St.
Peter's church. He knew thut they
were not seeking cheap advertisement
r.or showy ostentation, but came us
worshippers of the true aud living
God most high.
Tbe     Masonic    society  had existed
from time immemorial.   It was     as
ancient as the principals  which      it
inculcated.   From the 16th century it
had as definite a history as that    of
England or France but its beginnings
were in the mythological shadows of
past ages,
Which,   ever-warning,   ever   still   returns,
And weighs tomorrow, for it weighed
Woe   then to him,     whose    taring
hand   profanes,
The honoured  heirlooms of    Uii    ancestors.
There   is a   consecrating   power     in
And what is grey witb years is God-
|       like."
Freemasonry was honored not be-
C disc it was ancient but because of
its excellent principles and noble
ideals. The truest and sweetest
things of life were' those not seen but
of which we dreamed. Theoretically
■„ mason ought to be a good man. II
not he was a hypocrite. But perfection belonged to God alone aud too
much should not be expected whether
of a  Mason or a  churchman.
Masons were honored because    they
were searchers after  truth.       "Whut
is  truth,''   asked   the  preacher,     who
said  that  the  mason's conception  of
the  Bible   was   truth   and  went   on  to
deal  with the existence of God,    und
of  duty   toward   God,   toward      one's
neighbor,     and to oneself.   He spoke
jol the duty  of  prayer,  of hope   that
;tbe future  will  redress the wrongs of
the past,  of   the evi!      of  profanity.
Touching  upon  duty  toward    oneself
' Mr.   Procunier     showed   tbe duty of
, the education of the intellect, of the
will and of the soul,     ami declared
that there was no record ol 1 mason
having  ever  committed  suicide.
I   The masons conception     ol Christ
the Saviour of the world Ottght also
to he truth he said. Masons should
go from the centre of the circle to
the circumference nnd follow it to the
end. In conclusion tbe preacher ud-
jured his bearers to perform their
allotted task while it was yet .lay for
the darkness  must come. •

The Thirteen
What, is the foundation of the "13"
It iB not only in English-speaking
countries that the date is a fretful
one. You can trace it in Prance,
where the minister postpones the publications of the mimes of a new cabinet that the list may not appear on
the Kith of the month.
You meet with it in Germany, too,
where even Bismarck would rather
aacrifice a dinner thau make one of
13 at a table. Again you can come
across the same superstitious terror
in Switzerland, in Italy and in tho
Scandinavian countries. You find it
on thc stock exchange, and even in
Kay, cynical Paris it creeps out when
a holiday starts an the 13th and half
the people stay shamefacedly at home
An English expert along statistical
lincB has recently compiled some valuable information on this queer but
interesting subject. The superstition
traced back to intiquity, iB thought
to have its foundation in all Scandinavian countries in mythology. Their
ancient gods and goddesses appar -
ently loathed the number, but back
of that none can go.
As for the reason in England two
explanations are offered, though prob
ably not one person in a thousand
who cherishes the delusion can really
tell them. One authority aBcribes the
whole tradition to the ill luck
thought to be associated from the
fact that 13 sat down to thc last
But why any blighting or pernicious
influence should result in mankind
from that solemn gathering no man or
woman of any sane mind has ever
been able to Bay. Though there aro
scholars who explaiu the terror by
pointing out that since Judas, who
wab the first to quit the table, hanged himself, the superstition hus come
down  throuch  the ages since then.
But here is another und more definite reason for its origin which was
only reached after a long and laborious search on the part of a number
of learned men; "The superstition,"
they Bay, "that where a company of
personB amounts to 13 one of them
will die within the twelve-month r.f-
■terward seems to be founded on the
calculations adhered to by the insurance offices, which presumes that out
of 13 persons taken indiscriminately,
one will die within the year."
So, apparently, the superstition
comes from a ridiculous deduction
from biblical history of from the
chance calculations of some forgotten
insurance man's computations, whose
theory would probably be upset in
five minutes by a modern authority
upon life averages of healthy individuals.—Chicago Tribune.

Winnipeg,    June 20.—It is reported
here that local members of the Loco-
, motive Engineers and • Firemen's
unions are discussing the possibilities of a general strike of their unions
I following the failure of the- railway
companies and unions to agree upon
a schedule at the recent congress in
Chicago. According to present in -
formution received by the men, a
general strike on all lines west of
i-'liicugo, including the United  States
i and Canada will bc ordered on  July
j 15 next.   This covers 95 different rail-
j ways and about 5,00li men in western
Canada.   All systems are involved.
Negotiations  on  the  schedule have
been in progress  for  many  weeks and
: it iB claimed by the men that thc com
: pauies have been making an effort to
reduce the    men to    their position of
I 30 years ago so far    as wages   and
j working conditions are concerned.
The two unions involved at the pre-
| sent time have funds that run into
millions of dollars and it is said tbey
! are preparing for a fight to a finish,
! unless a working agreement is arriv-
I ed at before July 15.
While the general statement is that
i Canadian lines will be involved in the
strike there has been no confirmation
of tbis received from the Winnipeg
headquarters of the organizational
In the past all disputes between the
company and the men have been submitted to a court of arbitration pro-
e \ iib'il under the Lemieux act. Whether the Canadian     unions will appeal
\ to this court before a general strike
j is called is not known.

One of the most interesting elections ever held in the province of
Ontario has resulted in the return of
the Whitney government by a majority, if not overwhelming, at least
nn ere than adequate for all practical
purposes. It has been a splendid tii-
bute to the appreciation by the pro-
vince of the administration of Sir
James Whitney, who enters .vli.it may
be the best parliament in which be
will hold the premiership A-ith the
knowledge that he retains the confidence of the people to a remarkable
extent; for Sir James is no longer
young, his health is impaired, and it

In the last few years some notable
Improvements have been effected in a
number of the lire lighting equipments
throughout the Dominion, says the
Victoria Colonist. In some instances
these have been the megns of leading
to a reduction in the rates charged
for Insurance. The introduction of
better water supplies and more rigid
building restrictions have also had
their effect in reducing the rates, but
even still the balance of profit made
by the operating companies would
suggest that further reductions are
in order.

New Westminster will be the meeting place for the Odd Fellows' convention of British Columbia next

Under the impression that valuables
would be secured, thieves broke into
St. John's church at Victoria. They
secured the heavy box containing the
church records, carried it out of the
building to a nearby vacant lot where
the lock was forced. The box, a
heavy Iron-bound affair weighing over 2O0 pounds, contained books, records and other material, but nothing
of intrinsic value. The number of
thieves who perpetrated the theft is
not certain, but it took three men to
carry the box and its contents back
l into the vestry whence it was stolen.

Canadian Northern Will Start
Construction Next Month-
Guarantee Bonds Signed
Construction work on tbe Canadian
Northern railway branch line from
Kamloops to the Okanagan valley,
will begin next month and will be
uished toward completion with every
resource at the company's command.
Huilding will he beguu simultaneously at three points, Vernon, Armstrong and Kamloops. From Vernon
construction work will proceed in
four directions from Vernon toward
Armstrong; toward Kelowna, toward
Okunapan Landing and up the White
valley toward Lumby and Shuswap
falls. Announcement to this effect
was  made      when Watson  W.  Evans,
Vernon the survey is --I miles long,
from Vernon to Kelowna ,15 miles,
from Vernon to Okanagan Landing,
about four miles, from Vernon to
Lumby 17 miles, and from Lumby to
Shuswap Falls 10 miles. The last
named 10 mile extension is not included under the recent guarantee but
will be built to reach to the company's power site and townsite at the
falls, where electric power is to be developed to operate the Lumby and
Kelowna lines and probably the line
i lear through to Kamloops. Active
development work on the power site
will probably not be begun until nexr
spring. It is the intention of the corn-
pans to rush the work in every way
possible in order to give employment
to as many thousands of men as possible, and to take advantage of present low prices on rails, lumber, etc.
Grading, except on the few heavy
stretches of rock work on the Kamloops Okanagan line will it, is hoped, be practically finished by January
1,  next.
