According to a striking article in

Intervention in Europe.
In Asia the chunces of Turkish victory arc small in any case, and rendered still smaller hy the probability
of the defection of the Aruhs and—as
soon as the true position is understood hy them—of the Kurds. We
have to seek Ior other motives than
any great hope of victory. They are.

Turkey, however, tha result is officially the same, as Kuvrr PaSba, despite
a recent (Utile protest on the part ot
the   Sultan himself,  disposes      of    the
policy ol the ottoman government.
That be disposes ol it at thc bidding
ol Potsdam is a common-place.
In 1008 a hostile demonstration was
made by Turkey. It had tor its nominal a'im the readjustment of the
frontier between Kfjypt and Turkey.
The line actually runs between Ruin
and Bl Arish, a point on the sen coast
of the Levant, to Akuba, a Village on
the extreme north ol the gulf of the
same name In the lied Sen. The contention of the l'orte was thnt the
line should he drawn Irom Rata (or
from El-Artsh—the distinction did
not seem to bc clearly perceived) to
Suez, thus including in the Ottoman
Empire the whole of the Blnaitic
peninsula. In spite of the precise assurance given by the Grand Vizier in
1892—which expressly defined the eastern frontier of the Khedive's territory as limited hy a line drawn from
I>1 Arisli, which is a well-known centre of Egyptian administration, to
Akaba—Turkish troops were sent in
January,  1906, to occupy     Jaba,     a
Village well to the west of this boiin

admit this audacious claim, which
directly menaced the tranquillity if

Government to Launch Special
Advertising  Campaign to
Attract Attention to B.C.
A special exhibit, portraying the resources and attractions ol British Columbia, is to be made at the great
lanama Pacilic exposition at San
Francisco, which will be formally
opened on February 20 next, according to an announcement mude liy the
The organization of the enterprise
is in the hands of the officials of the
agricultural department, hut the exhibit will be most comprehensive infill line displays of minerals, timber
and timber products, fund fishes, etc.
Moving pictures will he largely   used
ti' depict the ureal scenic charms .if
the province, as well as to reveal
what it has to ofler in its fertile valleys to the fanner  and hmiieseeker.
"This is the lirst time ln the his
tory     of    tlie     province," said Sir
riicharil, "that a great international
exposition has heen laid at a point
in such proximity to British Ooluin-
hin   as In   make it   possible   for ns    to
secure immense benefits Irom it by
special advertising. Huge crowds
from all parts nf the world will he in
attendance at the fair at San Francisco during the six months of the
event, and we should be neglecting a
real   opportunity if  we  failed  to    take
special and extraordinary steps to
attract attention to this province
during that period.
"It is true that the federal govern-
■iient will have assembled in the Canadian building at the fair displays
more or less comprehensive from all
the provinces, and BritiBh Columbia has no cause fm- complaint at the
manner in which Colonel Hutchison
and his staff ol the Canadian commission h-ive attended tc t''e worV
of getting exhibits representative of
thc resources of this province.
A  Sprc'iul  Incentive.
"But. there is a special incentive to
supplement the eflorts of the Ottawa
government. We must exert every effort to induce a goodly portion of the
hundreds of thousands of visitors at
the exposition to come un to this
country and see what we havc a**
here. The fact that the trip wh'ch
they will hnve to make in order to do
this is very short, suggests that we
may be successful     in our endeavors
and thus secure a great advertisement
which will prove fruitful of good results.
"Under the direction of thc officials
of the agricultural department the
work of arranging for the provincial
exhibit is already in hand, each ofthe
departments is co-operating. Already;
the government has on hand a series
of moving picture displays. These
Will he supplemented as occasion offers, and a course of lectures wil he
given by a staff which is now being
"I understand that all the transportation companies intend offering
escecdingly low rates during the period of the exposition to all points
in British Columbia, and if, by this
special eflnrt on the part of the pro-
uncial government, any considerable
number of people ran he Induced to
make nn inspection trip through our
Country, we shall have been well repaid for our outlay. I anticipate that
the  venture  will   prove a great      suc-
It's good policy to I hi ok of l he future.
It's Still better policy to provide against
