"Vister, M.P.P., spoke very in-
tt and   instructively     about
Moun. -on     before the    Natural
HiBtory uociety, and tho lantern slid
es shown by him were convincing evidence that the half cannot be told of
that great scenic region. We ure. reminded by his address of the early
opening of what will be a very interesting tourist route, soon to be available. It will utilize three new railways: The Cunadian Northern Pacific, the Grand Trunk Pucitic and the
Pacific Great Eastern. The starting
point will be Vancouver and the. journey Will end at that city, und will be
approximately 1,500 miles long. It
will be up the Fraser canon, up the
canon of the Thompson, up the picturesque North Thompson, nnd , then
across a low divide to the historic
Yellow Head Pass, near the majestic
peak of Mount Hobson. Thence it
will he down the Fraser and across
country to historic Fort George and
thence southward for a part of the
distance hy the Fraser valley und
then by a detour through the region
made famous by the old Cariboo
Road. It will cross the Ftf.ser, and
running through the Lillooet country
reach the Pemberton Meadows und
thence extend southward to Howe
Sound and along its picturesque
shores to North Vancouver, and
thence across Hurrurd Inlet to the
place of beginning.
The traveler will follow the footsteps of the giants of bygone days ,
Mackenzie and Fraser and Thompson
nnd many another of the splendid
und fearless men, who wrested from
the moui tains and the wild rivers the
secrets they had long hidden. There
will be majestic scenery for hundreds
upon hundreds of miles, und the
whole journey will be through a laud
rich in human Interest; There can be
few journeys like this anywhere in
the world. It will of course, be possible to vary it. The traveler may
prefer to journey on from Fort George to Prince Rupert and return
home by the land-locked channels along the Const line. He may continue eastward from the Puss to Edmonton, and then home by way of
Calgary and the C.P.R. Later he
may go Northward from Fort George
to the Pence River, and stand where
Mackenzie, stood when he wrote his
description of the Rocky Mountains,
content ing himself with saying that
they "presented an agreeable Bpect -
acle." hater still, he may journey
on as far as the Yukon waters; but
of this more and more by nnd bye.

new wonderland which the new railways will make accessible.—Colonist.

IRON AND
STEEL BOUNTIES
The Position Explained.—Bounties Replaced.
Tupper Tariff. -The Encouragement of Our
Industries.
Primary iron and steel industries
are asking for protection cither by
bounties or tariffs. On their behalf
It must be said that they are laboring under conditions but little reimv
ed from free trade. When the Nation
al Policy was introduced there were
no Large iron and stoel works engaged in primary production. Had a
protective tarifl beeu imposed on such
products it would have increased the
cost of raw material of many industries tor many yeurs before smelting
works and steel plants could be ca -
tablished. Nearly a decade passed be
fore Sir Charles Tapper introduced
the system of iron and steel tariBs,
which remains almost unchunged, intended to encourage industries intermediate between smelting works and
the ultimate manufactures. The Tupper tariff still left I-protected the
manufacture! of iron and steel in primary form.
To meet this case he introduced the
bounty system. It was graded according to the stage of the products and
was placed on n decreasing sliding
scale, so that it. would disappear in
a certain period. The hope of tae
government of that day was that the
works would be in full operation
while the bounties continued, and
when the end came they would either
be able to meet outside competition,
without protection, or would be no
far capable of supplying thc home
demand that their products might
be included In the general tariff. Rut
industries of this class are of slew
creation and the bounties ran low te-
fore the new enterprises got much
benefit from them. The time lire it
was extended once by the Conserva -
tive government. After Mr. Fielding
became Minister of Finance the boun
ties again approached the vanishing
point. He restored them to their
highest point, and greatly extended
their application. Some $17,000,000
has beeu paid in bounticsto steel and
iron manufactures, and more than
ninety per cent, of this was contributed by Mr. Fielding. The larger
part of the bounties went to Cape
Breton industries, the Algoinu works
and t.. establishments at Hamilton
and Midland. These divided among
them in 1908 more than $2,000,000,
und in some other years neurly ue
much.
Though the Liberals attacked tfte
bounty system when it was established Mr. Fielding was In his day an excellent apologist for the policy. He
pointed out that the iron und Bt«el
industries had built up two or three
large towns, and that the additional
public revenues from these communities largely met the outlay for boun
ties. It may be added that bounties
have been paid on the production of
lead,   nianila  cordage  and  petroleum.
Now that the iron and steel bounties have disappeared and these industries Bnd themselves without protection of either kind in a count.\
where the protective system generally prevails, it is not surprising that
their case has been presented to Parliament. The present, finance Minister does not favor the bounty system
as a permanent policy. In this respect he is like his predecessor, yet
his predecessor maintained the sys -
tern Until it had prevailed more than
twenty vears. It remans to be seen
what Mr. White will do. But it is altogether likely that if the bounties
nre not renewed the next tariff revision will place the industry r,n a basis
correspinding with that of other man

B.C. COAL
PROSPECTS
Liberals Contest
Senate Increase
Judging by the attitude of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and his followers In
the House, there is not much chance
of incrensed Senatorial representation for British Columbia and Manitoba this year without a hot tight
being made over it. Bills giving Alberta and Saskatchewan two new sen
ators euch will puss, lf the Upper
Chamber takes the stand of Sir Wilfrid, it is expected it will throw out
the Manitobu and British Columbia
meusures.
This was made plain iu the debate
today on Premier Borden's resolution
providing for increase of senators
from the West.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier argued that
while the Parliament of Canada had
authority to grunt increused senatorial representation to Saskatchewan
and Alberta, it did not have the authority to do the sume for Manitoba
and that Imperial Legislature was
necessary. The hill to give three ad-
hitlonal senators to British Columbia was not discussed, but Sir Wilfrid
intimated that he took the same
stand towards that province
As the senate, as at present constituted, is controlled by the Liberals,
the position assumed by Sir Wilfrid
iu the Commons is almost certain to
be endorsed by the majority there.
Thc Liberals of course took high and
lofty constitutional grounds for their
opposition, but Mr. W. M. Merman,
who has an unfortunately blunt way
with him rather let the cat out of
the bag when he admitted that the
question at issue was really the increase of the Conservative members
of  thc  Upper House.
With the vacancies caused by the
death of Hon. Geo. Cox and Sir Geo
Robs tilled the Liberal majority in
thc Upper House Is only nineteen. If
all four bills passes the Liberal majority will be reduced by nine.
The Liberals are not enthusiastic
over the prospect.
However, if Manitoba and British
Columbia's increased representation
is blocked the Liberal majority Will
be fifteen and In nil probability secure to Sir Wilfrid control of the Second Chamber during the life of the
present  parliament.
Political [quality
leaps feting
A meeting under the auspices of
the Politicnl Equality League, was
held on Wednesday afternoon at the
home of Mrs. Manning. Mrs. Hall
was unavoidably absent through ill —
ness and her paper was postponed.
Mrs. Robbins read a splendid    essay
r n Child Welfare. The subject was
treated in a broad-minded, far-seeing
way, dealing with the problem ns it
affected the ultimate good of the
state and the nation as well ns the
child individually. Motherhood was
referred to is the "only unskilled pro
fesslon". Problems touching the daily needs of a child, as proper food,
sleep, healthful surroundings, recreation, education were matters which
it was customary to see treated in
The most ignorant nnd inefficient man
ner by the very ones who should by
rights be most skilled along these
lines. Parents are prone to over-in -
dulge their children, and nre lacking
In discipline and parental control.As
regards the nation there are the ques
tions of child-labor, of orphaned rhil
dren, of public amusement, Of scientific education, etc. This last will
not be complete till it includes systematic and scientific education of
g'rls for their great mission iu life.
This should be a branch of the Do -
mestic Science course in the public
schools. The child is the grentest as
set of the nation, and it is only
those nations thnt recognize this and
act a"cordingly that make true pro
gress. It is in relation to thc nat -
ion as affected by the home and vice
versa that enfranchisement of women
is an essentinl to a satisfactory so -
lution  of these problems.
An interesting discussion, in which
every one present Joined, followed the
conclusion of Mrs. Robbins excellent
address. Mrs. Manning served tea
and a hearty vote of thanks was pas
sed to Mrs. Manning for the use of
her house.
That the advent of Mr. D.A. Thomas, the prominent Welsh mining magnate, Into this country tins aroused
a widespread interest wub amply testified by Mr. Franklin Denton, a mln
ing engineer of Pensylvania, who has
just completed a brief tour of the
northern section of British Columbia
in the Interests of ins connections.
Mr. Denton who hus been in the
country, carrying on a quiet inspec -
tion  for  several   weeks,   declares  that
from his observation of actual mln - ;
ing conditions In the Groundhog co- '
untry there is every possible justifica
tion for the faith of Mr. Thomas,
which has found recent expression in
his application for a railway to run
from the mining zone to tidewater,     j
"The fact ot Mr. Thomas interesting himself in this section of country
is very significant," said Mr. Denton
"and you must not be at ull surprised if you find it creating us great un
impression in the United Stutes us
elsewhere, Coal is one of the most
universal of necessities ut the present, and the country that has more
than tl ,■ "- ia! supply of it is bound
in the nature of things to earn a lit-
tlcpassing attention. From all quur
ters there is reason to believe that
In the northern districts of British
Columbia there is coul in large quantities, and of a nature peculiarly suit
ed to commercial use on a large
scale. What l mean is that there is
anthracite, and to anyone who knows
anything about the coal industry, no
thing mote need be said on the subject."
Touching upon the proposal of Mr.
Thomas to construct a railway from
the mining centre to the coast, Mr.
Denton expressed the opinion that it
would do much toward the speedy de
vclopincnt of the properties. He also
thought thai it would prove u means ',e
in further discoveries of profitable
deposits not yet charted at all. The
necessity for rail connection appealed to him strongly, and he paid u
high tribute to the Provincial govern
ment for its faith In prosecuting this
undertaking in the manner thut has
been  adopted.
"Railways are a necessity for the
developm ml of practically any industry nowadays," proceeded Mr. Den ^
ton, "and this is doubly true in the
case of the coal mines. With direct
rail connection to the coast, the
whole northern Country could be opened up in a remarkably short space
of time, Of course, 1 am not ovcr-
looking the fact thai much is being
done even now in this line.    The G.T.
P., and     the pacific Great  Eastern
will  naturally  contribute  largely    to
the development of this country, but
at the same time there is no gainsaying the extreme value to the industry
of a  specially  designed   road       such
as that which appears t'. occupy thc
mind and attention  ol  Mr. Thomas"
Speaking on the subjeel of coal gen
erally,     Mr.    Denton said   that  the
large   interests  were   always  '.a    the
lookout  for  promising coal  deposits.
No country could get along without
coul.   He cited  the  tremendous   use
of coul iii war vessels as  well as      in
thc  ordinary   industrial   development,
and remarked,  In regard to the form
er, that nothing represented so p.«w
erlul an asset In time of trouble    as
coal. This factor, he thought, made
it important that British interests
should see to      it   that the cal       of
British Columbia was exploited properly, and that it Was subjected to
Accessary  protection.
"What, the development of another
great coal industry would achieve for
British   Columbia  it  is

Mr. Dow-den said if that was so It
would end the matter, but he had un
derstood that the city wus up against it for power and had gone into
the matter of power. Before he went
further he had thought he hud better
see if the city was open for such a
contract or not.
j Aid. McSorley—I am only speaking
to   for myself.
Aid. Hell said the view he took
was that he did not think the debenture holders would stand for such a
thing. He did not think it a very-
good proposition as the city would
have to buy current for street lighting. Besides he thought the city was
better olT as they were. It might be
all right for private consumers, but
it would adversely affect street lighting, If the city had to buy current
for street lights the street lighting
would  sutler.

Should Whites
Marry Orientals
Rev. Prof. W. Andrews, thc Rcgina
clergyman who declared at the Social Service Congress, which was held
in Ottawa recently, that there was
nothing better to nai- with our blood
thun the Oriental, should have given
his hearers, at least, one concrete ex
ample in which the blending of the
white and Oriental races had resulted in the production of a superior
type. The reverend gentleman must
have formed his opinions in Regina,
where there is no such mixture of
CaucaBlan and oriental to be found.
He certainly never acquired them in
India or China or Japun where oc-
casionally one does run across such
hybrids generally to discover that
they are despised by both branches
ol their parent tree, it is regrettable thai men, who from their calling
should possess a fair degree of Intelligence and common-sense, should allow ,i mistaken zeal to hurry them
Into speaking such nonsense ns Prof.
Andrews gave utterance to nt the
congress.
There is an instinctive repugnance
among the white races to marriages
with Orientals and thut repugnance
is largely shared by thc Asiatics.
And it is well that this is so to judge
by the issue of such marriages in
Asia lie countries, Eurasians of India, for example, possess none of the
hardy manly qualities of their white
progenitors and they appear to have
lost must of the virtues of their Hin
du kin. In the case of the Chinese
an.! Japanese it Is less easy to pronounce conclusively ns these peoples
hold themselves as exclusively aloof
frum the whites as the whites do
from them. All experience goes to
show that it would take generations
t i break .lown the social amV family
bar. era between the Japs and Chinese and the whites, if indeed it could
ever he effected, lf they nre admitted to Ihis country they will always
i i Isolated from the general com
munity and will always form alien
settlements in the midst of mir people. We have no wish to question
Prof. Andrew's eulogy on the capability shown by the Chinese and their
honesty. The business ability they
display, joined with their lower standard of living, is one of the principal
objection to their presence here.
They ore able to live Where white
men would starve and to trnthcr a
Competence and even wraith where
the white man would make only a
living wage. If British Columbia is
!■■ .■ a white man's country, the
Whites must have a fair chance,which
they would not got if the i^ates were
thrown ..pen to th? frugal Orientals.
The question is one fr.nn which sentiment must he entirely excluded. It
natter of race preservation, and
being such it is not only policy but
an imperative duty on the part of
the Canadian government to adopt
and maintain th" most rigid exclusion  laws.—The Sun.

Winnipeg  Telegram:   The  credit    of
j Canada is not Being injured by   the
probe ot publicity.   That is the only
, way in which it can be restored. Anything else  would simply  show    that,
| when It came to a question of   knavery
and fraud all Canadians were as thick
as thieV63, and that, no matter who
I came into power, the guilty parties
j would be protected.     Anything more
quickly calculated to destroy the cre-
| dit of Canada cunnot     well   be conceived.
As    for    the credit    of the    Grand
Trunk railway company it must take
care of  that  itself.   Canada can  pay
| the s|ii,OiiO.uOO,    and will pay       that
| money.   In fact, Canada has paid it.
That   Canada has not received value
I is due to the criminal negligence    of
j her trustees,  and she will settle with
them.   But to avoid responsibility is
the lasl  thing in the country's thought, oven  if it were possible.   If   the
Grand  Trunk Railway company    and
Can.da  i.iv  jointly victims, theymust
both suffer for their willingness to be
j victimized,  but  not  thc  one  for the
other.
Calgary Herald: On an estimate it
is going to cost the people of EU-
nii.nt..n about $19,I»I0 to publish a
weekly municipal journal lor a year.
It is practically certain the actual
! cost will he much greater than this.
A perfectly foolish and altogether un-
necessarj expense, for which the people of the capital will have to pay,
to humor the whim of an autocratic
mayor.
McLeod  Spectator:    ln  the  issue of
the Calgary News-Telegram of Feh.2S
thc Carstairs correspondent to   that
paper severely  takes  an      Edmonton
paper  to  task for claiming  that     a
bunch of chickens batched on Feb, 6
created a  local  and  Dominion  record
fur      the  year,   The same  gentleman
then  proceeds to show  that a  brood '
of  voting  chicks made  their  appeal -
lance in the town of Carstairs on Feb
•-'.    lie      is   evidently   Lnclided  to   be-
lieve that bis own town holds the re- !
cord,  but   so  far as records  go       tho
town i.i McLeod has them all beaten,

MRS. 4. G. CRICK,
Spokane Spokesman Review: National Ignorance of international re-
lat .a ■ is an ally ot th,' dialers iu
war-scares and an Influence that makes fe.r war. Such Ignorance puta a
people peculiarly at the uurcy of
mistaken information and of intentionally   misleading statitnents.
An Instance ..f tins oocurred not
long airo in this country. Two New
York papers published news from
Berlin about the foreign relations of
the United States that would be serious of taken at face value. Both agreed that Germany believes that America and Japan are drifting intowar
But one represented Germany as regarding the iniaL'ined drill without
sympathy fur this country, thc other
showed  it  as solicitous over the sup-
posed strain in American-Japanese re
Latlons and as apprehensive not mere
ly because of pure friendship hut because conscious of mutual interest
with the l'nited States.
Ths statement! of the two papcis
fortunately happen to be mutually de
structive. but the point is not affected. This point is that fantastic interpretations are not infrequently
given to the purpose of the foreign
policy of a great nntion and that
they strain probability as to the cf-
fe.'t of European or .Japanese diplomacy  upon  th" l'nited  States.

Should Whites
Marry Orientals
Rev. Prof. W. Andrews, the Reglna
clergyman who declared at the Soc-
iul Service Congress, which was held
in Ottawa recently, that there was
nothing lietter to mix with our blood
than the Oriental, should have given
his hearers, at leust, one concrete ex
ample in which the blending of the
white and Oriental races hud resulted in the production of a superior
type. The reverend gentleman must
have formed his opinions in Regina,
where there is no such mixture of
CaucaBian and Oriental to be found.
He certainly never acquired them in
India or China or Japan where occasionally one docs run across such
hybrids generally to discover that
tbey are despised by both branches
..( their parent tree, it is regrettable tbat men, who from their calling
should possess a fair degree of intelligence and common-sense, should allow a mistaken zeal to hurry them
into speaking such nonsense us Prof.
Andrews gave utterance to at the
congress.
There is an instinctive repugnance
among the white races to marriages
with Orientals and thut repugnance
is largely shared by thc Asiatics.
And it is well that this is so to judge
by the is-iiie of such marriages in
Asiatic countries. Eurasians of India, for example, possess none of the
hardy manly finalities of their white
progenitors and they appear to have
lost most of the virtues of their Bin
du kin. In the case of the Chinese
and Japaneso it is less easy to pronounce conclusively as these peoples
bold themselves as exclusively uloof
from the whites as the whites do
from them. All experience goes to
show that it would take generations
to break down the social uniV family
bnr er3 between the Japs and Chinese and the whites, if indeed it could
ever be effected, lf they are admitted to this country tbey will always
i . n isolated from the general com
inanity and will always form alien
settlements ni the midst of our people. We bave no wish to question
Prof. Andrew's eulogy on the capability shown ly the Chinese and their
honesty. The business ability they
display, joined with their lower standard of living, is one of the principal
objection to their presence here .
They nre able to live where white
nan would starve and to gather a
competence and even wealth where
the white man would make only a
living wage, if British Columbia is
to be a white man's country, the
whites must have a fair chance,which
they would not get if the gates were
thrown ..pen to the frugal Orientals.
The question is one from which sentiment must be entirely excluded. It
isa matter of race preservation, and
being such it is not. only policy but
an imperative duty on tbe part of
the Canadian government to adopt
and maintain the most rigid esrliis-
■i  laws.—The Sun.

FROM THE
PAPERS
Winnipeg Telegram: The credit of
Canada is not being injured by    the
I probe of publicity. That is the only
way in which it can be restored. Anything else would simply show that,
when it cume to a question of  knavery
' nnd  fraud all Canadians were ns thick
' as thieves, and that, no mutter who
came into power, the guilty partita
I would be protected. Anything more
quickly calculated to destroy the cre-
! dit of Canada cannot well be conceived.
As for the credit of the Grand
Trunk railway ■ company it must take
care of that itself. Canada can pay
the S40,000,000, and will pay that
money.   In fact,  Canada has paid  it.
i That. Camilla has not received value
j is due to the criminal negligence of
her trustees, and she will settle with
them. But to avoid responsibility is
(lie last thing in the country's thought. >!\<mi if it were possible. If tbe
Grand Trunk Railway company ami
Canada are Jointly victims, theymnst
both  suffer for their  willingness to lie
j victimized, hut not thc one for the
other.
Calgary Herald: On an estimate it
is going to cost the people of EU-
monton about $I9,I'U0 to publish a
weekly municipal journal for a year,
ft is practically certain the actual
cost will be much greater than this.
A perfectly foolish and altogether un-
necessarj expense, for which the people i.f the capital will have to pay,
to humor the whim of an autocratic
mayor.

McLeod Spectator: in tlio issue of
the Calgary News-Telegram of Feb.28
the i arstairs correspondent to that
paper severely takes an     Edmonton
pi    to  task for  claiming  that     a
bunch ..f chickens hatched on Feb. ti
created n local and Dominion record
for the year. The same gentleman
then proceeds to show that a brood
of young chicks made their appeui -
ance In the town .'f Carstairs on Feb
-. He is evidently inclided to bell.' that his own town holds tbe record, but so lar as records go tho
town of McLeod has them all beaten,
for as long ago as Jan. 15, the McLeod Spectator made note ..f the fact
.that six chicles had made their appearance on the premises of J. Sted-
inan   of  Side,nth street.
Spokane Spokesman Review: National Ignorance of international re-
lat .u     is an   ally   of   th.   dealers      in
war-scares and an influence that makes for war. Su h Ignorance puts a
people peculiarly at the mercy of
mistaken Information and of intentionally  misleading statiments.
An Instance of this occurred not
long ago in this country. Two New
York papers published news from
Berlin about the foreign relations of
the United States thnt would be serious Of taken at face value. Until agreed that Germany believes that Amen.',, and Japan are drifting Intowar
But one re).resented Germany as re-
gardlng the Imagined drift without
sympathy for this country, thc other
showed it as solicitous over the supposed strain in American-Japanese re
lations and as apprehensive not mere
ly because of pure friendship but because conscious of mutual interest
with the l'nited States.
The statements of thc two papois
fortunately happen to be mutually de
structiv.e. but the point is not affected. This point is that fantastic Interpretation* are not inlrenuently
given to the purpose of the (..reign
policy of a great nntion and that
they strain probability ns to the ef-
fecl e.f European or Japanese diplomacy upon th" United siatcw.

BIG TIMBER
CONTRACT
Negotiations which huvo been in
progress for the past four months
culminated yesterday in the final
completion of a contract with Vancouver Island lumber firms to dc -
liver to the order of the Dominion
government at Toronto the huge um-
| ount of 21,0110,1100 feet of timber to
he used in the construction of tho
new harbor works at that city, i The
contract involves a sum ol over $250
OIHI and delivery must be completed
within four years.
Thc firm which will carry out this
vast undertaking is the Cameron
Lumber Company, of Victorin, in con
junction with the Empire. Lumber Co
also of Victoria.
A contract of such magnitude constitutes a record in thc lumber business, nnd the fact that it is thc first
contract to he placed here as a direct result of the opening of thc Panama Canal in the current year is an
earnest of the vastly increased trade
for Vancouver Island which will follow from that event.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
undertaking may be gleaned from the
fact that the contract calls for :!.">,000
timbers forty feet long and twelve
inches square. If the whole of the
24,0il0,il0u feet were supplied in pieces
of these dimensions and they were
I laced in line they would stretch
from Victoria to a point cast of Kiim
' loops, in the Interior of the Prov -
ince, a total of over 260 miles.
The rush of applicants for places
On Sir Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic
expedition has fallen off since the an-
i ouncement was me&4 that sugar will
be the only stimulant served during
the trip.
President Wilson is a conservationist of words. His message to Congress re the Panama Canal tolls totalled :'.'-'I words. President Boone-
velt's communication relating to the
acquisition of the big ditch ran _0,-
OUO words.
Pity the sorrows of the poor golf
player. Driven from Cleveland by the
income tax collectors only to find his
New York links covered with a foot
of snow, John D. Rockefeller has gone
to Florida where he hopcB to enjoy
his favorite pastime in peace and
comfort.

SUSPECTS
Two men, George Miller and John
Smith, both Englishmen, were, taken
in charge by the American iinwifrrn-
tion authorities at Blaine, Wash., as
suspects in connection with the bank
robbery ut Abbotsford. They were)
handed over to Constable Lawrence
of the Canadian Immigration department at White Hock. From there*
they were conveyed to thc provincial
gaol at New Westminster.
1 Miller when searched was found to
have 840,95 on hia person, mostly in
Royal Bank bills. Smith was carrying s:l7.70, the greater part of wbicli
was also in Royal Bank bills. Tho
men state they spent Tuesday night
in the Royal City Hotel in New West
minster. Examination of the hotel
register bears out this statement.
They stated the money was paid to»
them hy a lumber company at Gol -
den, B.C.
Senior Constable Stephenson anil
Chief of Police Bradshaw of New
Westminster are of the opinion that
the men had ample time to reach
Westminster from Abbotsfcrd by 10
p.m.  the time they registered.
In the Montreal court of sessions
sentence of five years was passed on
Annie Saville, alias Madame. Lefebvre>
found guilty of inducing her threo
daughters to become moral delimiu -
ents. She will be taken to the penitentiary at Kingston, Ont., as there.
is no women's prison in the provinco
of Quebec.

and common iniethod seems to have

names of men who had nothing to do
with the works were written in the

are said to have gone into the cam-

not show whether the commissioner
knows this to l;e so or accepts the

CHANNEL
TUNNEL
SCHEME
Thirty-two years ago today tho
first mile of the English Channel tun
nei was completed. Travellers saw
visions of soon being able to dodge
the rough sea trip between Dover
and Calais. But the invasion bogey
seized the military authorities in
England. Parliament would not let
the construction proceed.
Each successive year that the project was proposed alarmists arose to
picture the French making use of the
tunnel to land an army in England.
Parliament regularly refused its approval, notwithstanding that the pro
meters devised schemes whereby the
pressing of an electric button on
English soil would put the tunnel out
of commission in war time.
Today that tirst mile of tunnel is
all that has been done toward boring
beneath the English Channel. But
the project is alive and is becoming
before the House of Commons again,
with prospects brighter than ever
before. France and England are on
cordial terms and the invasion bogey
is no longer acute.
Engineers say that thc tunneling
through the impervious rhalt of the
channel bed could be easily accom -
plished by a boring machine built on
tbe plan of a huge carpenter's bit and
the tunnel afterward lined with steel
The route is about -5 miles, which if
completed, would constitute the longest under-water tunnel in the world.
The cost is estimated at about SSO,-
000,000.

What Hotel Guests Leave
behind
The travelling man and the casual
tourist are probably thc most forgetful class of people in the world. To
this fact the manager und clerks of
any of the large hotels on the continent will bear witness. In connection
with this forgetfttlness on the part of
travelling pulilic a volume of stories
are stored up among hotel men.
At the King Edward hotel, Edmonton, as in every tirst class hotel, is a
smull room set aside and known as
the "memory room' among the hotel
employees. Here all thc things for -
gotten by guests are placed carefully
away to be held for identification if
called or written for. Every care is
taken to lahel thc article forgotten
with the name of the guest who is
maids on each door huve particular
supposed to have left it behind. The
instructions in this matter.
No more varied collections of articles would you find outside of
a second hand store or pawn shop.
There are military brushes, tooth
brushes, nail hrushes, clothes brushes
shoes, slippers, moccasins, and other
varieties of footwear, hosiery, hatB
photographs, collars and dozens of
other articles large and small even
false teeth.
The King Edward has a very choice
collection, hut probably the most
unique of all is a small gunny sack,
very widely used by prospectors for
carrying ore samples. It is full to
the brim with valuable gold aud copper quartz ore and has been in the
"memory room" since last spring.Attached to tl* package is a neat little
card with the name of the prospector
written on it. He is a well known
Uritish Columbia mining man, and
came to the King Edward one day
last year after spending six mootha
prospecting around Hudson's Hope,
B.C. Arriving in town, be spent con
sidernble time in enjoying the sights
and sounds of civilization, after
which he was closeted for two days
with two eastern men who specialize
in financing minins claims, indicating
that his discoveries were of considerable importance, About a week alter his arrival In the city he received
a call by wire and left in a hurry and
the bag of quartz sample, represent,
ing prohalilv millions and millions
of dollars in mineral wealth waiting
to be dug out of the ground, still reposes in the King l'.lward's "memory
room."
A forgotten photograph left in his
room by a well known traveler was
the strange means I.y which two
brothers were united after many
years. The man who forgot the picture is on the road for a Toronto leather firm nnd on a trip packed his
gripnnd took his departure leaving be
hind a photograph Oi his sister. This
was found next day, stored in the j
"memory room" and the usual record kept. Another young man, a
young surveyor, registered at the hotel a few days afterwards, after having spent some two years in construe
tion work on the Q.T.P.. He had for
gotten a small article on a previous
visit and on nuking enquiries about
it was referred to the "memory
room.'' In looking over the multitude of things there, he picked up the
photo left some time before by     the
GIANT
HUSSIAN
BIPLANE
BETTER
EMIGRANTS
The Times St. Ptersburg correspondent says that Sikorsky's giant
biplane, Llya Mouromets, makes
lights daily over the metropolis and
environs. It has'flown for one and a
half hours carrying 16 p'erBons, and
for two hours with the ordinary crew
ol eight. Seen from below it seems
to ride the air without any of the
roll or pitch that is noticed in smaller machines. The machine is propelled by four "argus" motors of 100
horse power each, placed on each side
of the iuselage, two in front and two
behind. It is asserted hy the inventor thnt two of these motors could
he put out of action without causing
an accident.
While the aeroplane was flying over
St. Petersburg Monday one of the
motors became frozen and stopped.
The speed of the aeroplane was diminished but it continued on its course
and presently one of the crew was
able to thaW' out the motor and
start it  again.
Sikorsky intends to fit on a fifth
100 horse power motor and thus increase the speed of the machine which
has a wing area five times that of
the ordinary Farman biplane. The
metal fuselage is li."> feet long and the
forward part of the fuselage contains
a number of cabins extending over a
length of 28 feet. The cabins have
large windows on both sides aDd
also windows in the floor for observa
tion and photographers. At night
the cabins are electrically lighted. On
tbe roof of the cahins there is a plut-
form.
The total weight of the aeroplane
is three and one half tons. With a
total development of 400 horsepower,
the machine can raise a total useful
weight of a little over one ton, besides nearly 8b0 weight of fuel oil.
The mechanics can move about freely to attend to the motors and other
parts of the machine without disturb
Ing tin equilibrium of thc machine
while in flight.

leather man. Tbe picture was also
of his sister. The men, or boys, had
been separated for a number ol years
and as the engineer had spent much
of his time out in the wilds and the
traveler on tbe road, they had completely lost track of each other. Following the finding of the picture how
ever, they were soon again united.
But Fewer from Gt. Britain
The season is now sufficiently advanced to enable a forecast to be giv
en as to the probable volume of emigration to Canada this year and it
seems certain that the numbers will
fall far short of those of last year.
Of course the unemployment question
has exercised a great influence aud
the countless letters sent to papers
here by Britons in Canada have left
on the public mind the impression
that Canada may be no better than
this country just at present.
The assistant superintendent of emigration and the agents-general of
the provinces are most active in refuting any obviously incorrect statements which get into the press, but
that they are there at all has a disquieting effect on the public.
People here do not discriminate guf
ticiently to reulise thc difference between agricultural employment and
industrial unemployment. The tendency is to say "Canada is full up for
the time being." The statement
made in the House nt Ottawa that
100,000 men are walking the streets un
able to find work is accepted ns a
fact because it is made in Parliament
A little discrimination seems neces -
sary in Canada, too, particularly among journalists, who flavor their
despatches with the mixture required
by their papers here. Some af the
despatches to the Manchester papers
have been most damaging to Canada
so much so that the Canadian office
here adopted the unusual course of
intervening to question thc uccuracy
of the despatch.
But to return to emigration; there
is every reason to sny that numbers
will be less, but the class will be bet
ter ut ull events from the view-point
of capital. The number of large estates put on tbe market In the last
year has been unusually largt and
cantrary to expectation the change
of landlord results in a change of ten
ant. It is this class—the tenant lar-
mers—which will move out in large
numbers this year.
Another point of interest is that
Canada is not alone in experiencing a
decline in emigration. The Australian
authorities are very nimli concerned
to fill their boats and the reason of
the remarkably generous terms the
Commonwealth is offering to settlers
of ull kinds—even the kind not effusively welcomed by Canada—is thut
they cannot get the required numbers
and conSHqueiitly have to inr.reuse the
attractionsf There seems to be a
general disinclination to consider emigration this year. To show how remarkable the clause is—a representative of a British Columbian Colonization company told me that he was
abandoning his program because it
was a waste of money to continue;
another emigration man said after
touring England and Scotland thut
whereas last year the book-agents'
offices were packed witb inquiries
mauy of them this venr bad perhaps
one or two while they were under his
observation.
BRIGANDS
MURDER
MISSIONARY
Peking.—Brigands sacked and burned the city of Lao Hokow killed Dr.
T. Froyland, a Norwegian missionary
and wounded several other foreigners
including the Hev. O.M. Sama, another Norwegian.
Five hundred brigands obtained entrance to the city hy means of
treachery from within. They immediately plied torches and sword. They
burned the Asiatic Petroleum and thc
Singer buildings and looted the Brit
ish and American companies' premises.
Afterward they proceeded to thc
arsenal where they secured 700 rifles
several of the old guns and much ammunition.
Two thousand coolies were impress
ed, by thc brigands to carry off their
loot.
Lao Hokow,  which  is a   river port
On the Han Kinng,  is an important
mission station  in  the    Province    of
Hupeh-
Three missionary societies have re-
resentatives there. One of them is the
Norwegian Lutheran China Mission
Association, with headquarters in
Norway, which had a staff of three
men, two of them with their wives,
and three other women.
Dr. T. Foyland, who was murdered
by thc brigands nnd Rev. G.M. Sama
who was wounded, represented this
society.
Another society is the China Inland Mission, with headquarters in
London, and which has a staff in Lao
Hokow of one missionary and his
wife,  with  three other women.
Thc third society is also British—
"Christian Missions in Many Lands"
It has a staff in Lno Hokow of two
missionaries and their wives.
PRAISE FOR
CANADA
By a London Financier
Speaking at the Associated Cham-
! bers of Commerce meeting, Sir Alger
! non Firth, the president, spoke highly of the Canadian Railway Commission, which, he said, settled disputes
in about half the time they should
be settled here. The adoption of the
system here, however. would be
strongly opposed by many vested interests, not the least powerful being
the lawyers.
Referring to Canada's prospects Sir
Algernon said there had been a slack
ening in the willingness i of other
countries to provide capital for further expansion and a period of
healthy curtailment oi enterprise had
ensued. Constinuing Sir Algernon,
said:
"It is the fashion to say that Canada is going too fast, but with tbat I
' do not agree.   The possibilities of the
country are unlimited. The sums they
are receiving for crops and minerals
i must enable them, very soon, to d;s-
1 charge any obligations and    tbe need
of the  rest of the  world  for all    the
products Canada can provide, even at
I high prices, justifies tbe hope that tha
British    investor    will  not close    bis
pockets too tightly."

COMING
TO THE
EMPRESS
It would be an interesting matter
to determine, if any method were
available, which of two characters
closely associated with the name and
fame of Martin Harvey, who is ,Louring Canada under the auspices ot the
Uritish Canadian Theatre Organization Co., Ltd., has mudc the strongest appeal to the allections of tbe
public. The two characters in question are "Sidney Carton" the story
of whose supreme sacrifice is told in
■•The Only Way" and "Reresby, the
Rat." the gay and debonair hero of
John  Rutherford's delightful play —
"The  Breed of  the  Treshams."    Kach
character presents a distinct side   ol
the Uritish temperament. Carton is
known  to all readers of  Dickens       aa
the embodiment of altruism In a mix
ture which 'is nevertheless only too
human in its failures and weaknesses
"Reresby" is'of another age and another mould,  but  all the same       he

A very successful meeting was held
at Sicumous, on the evening of tho
10th to organize a Trap Shooting league for this district. There were
present representatives from Arm -
strong Sicamous and Kevelstoke gun
i luhs. Kamloops and Vernon were
represented by proxy, and agreed to
fall In line with what was done.
The league was formed, made up
of the live clubs named and the Secretary was instructed to ask other
clubs to become members. The numo

Hon. F..T. Fulton, Kamloops, Hon.

The Doukhobors
It is impossible not to sympathize
with both parties to tbe dispute in
the rcgruttublc misunderstanding between British Columbiu and tbe
Doukhobors, says the Spokesman-
Review. The reported requirements
of tbu Provincial government are altogether reasonable und are necessary
I to the health of the public. No right
ofthe  Doukhobors is  iuterlcred   with,
! and it is proper that wise and just
luwsof Uritish Columbia should he
enforced among these religionists,
even if they he not citizens   of     the
' province, the Dominion or the Empire. The sovereignty ot the slate
over th.- uhurco In secular affairs
must  be recognized   uud upheld     by
|every religious society. On Hie other
side, however, these fanatics are entitled to exceptional forbearance from
the authorities and to special ellorta
• to make them understand the real
situation. They ure a vuluable sort
of settler for a new state to have for
the development of its naturul resources.   They ure hurd working and
.thrifty and make the wilderness blossom as the rose.
