The opposition fought hard, however. Councillor Fal-Vel was armed

It is quite possiTilo thnt the end is

in the proceedings, for although Councillor Fau-Vel's contention that a tie

Ottawa, March 9*. In the supreme
court this afternoon the first case to
come up waa Clement vs. the king,
an appeal from a judgment of the exchequer court. T'.ie* question for decision Is as to the right of the appellant, a judge of the supreme court of
British Columbia, while holding court
in Vancouver, to charge the per diem
allowance given by statute to a judge
performing his duties at a place other
than which he reside i.
The* appellant contends that his
residence is at Grand Forks, B.C.,
about 700 miles from Vancouver where
lie bas bull! a bouse, although he occupies It only occasionally and has a
rented house in Vancouver, where' he
lives most of the time with his family.
The case originated In an Information by the attorney general for Canada charging that the appellant had
received a large sum -over $4^00 -by
false and fraudulent representation
that his residence was at Grand Forks
and claiming a return of t he amount
Oji tlte trial evidenced showed that
the appellant resided mainly in Vancouver although he kept liis house in
Grand Forks in charge of a caretaker.
The exchequer court judge held
that his resilience was at Vancouver
and tJhat he had fraudulently obtained
the allowance while holding court
there and at Victoria, by charging for
his allowance as if he had been residing at Grand  Forks.

parliament to the effect that Great Britain did not intend
to embarrass the United States by demanding action under that country's self-assumed responsibilities of the
Munroe doctrine. Accordingly, the Benton murder has
gone uninvestigated, except by an irresponsible Mexican
commission, and the dead man's body, in the face of requests from Britain and the United States, has been withheld by Villa and Carranza. On the other hand the body
of an American killed by the Mexican federals under similar circumstances has been the occasion of a raid into
Mexican territory, if not ordered, at least countenanced
by the governor of the state of Texas, and the dead man's
body brought back to American soil.
While this action was undoubtedly taken without authority from Washington, still it had the backing of the
state governor and President Wilson is placed in the peculiar position of having either to reprimand the daring
Texas executive for an act which morally is right, though
diplomatically wrong, or else undertake to recover the
body of the murdered Britisher in similar fashion���that
is by force.
While insisting on the recognition of the Munroe doctrine by foreign powers as it applies to outside intervention on the American continent, the Americans cannot repudiate the responsibilities such a stand entails and, morally at least, they are held to count for the lives of the
subjects of other governments on Mexican soil.

No Proceedings; for Heresy.
Thte archbishop goes on to say that
he is unhesitatingly of    opinion that
the inquiry should  not take the suggested  form  of  proceedings    against
, the  bishops for heresy  and    schism. |
"The bishop of Uganda has made     it
clear  that the assent  given  by  himself and others to the suggestions for
a federation was altogether subject to
the approval of the authorities being
obtained after their full consideration
of  the  proposed   scheme.    With    regard to that proposed federation and
to the possible repetition hereafter of
whnt has been described as the 'open
communion' which followed    the conference, he holds himself bound, while
he retains Ills position as a diocesan
bishop of our church, to conform his
course of action to such direction as
may be given him by his metropolitan
or by his metropolitan acting in conjunction with other metropolitans and
bishops holding positions of authority
in the church, should it appear on Inquiry  that anything  which  has  been
done  contravenes  the  true  laws  and
principles of the Church of Kngland."
Questions  fcr  Committee.
The archbishop continues: "Happily
there is within our church an elected , .
body of bishops which does seem to | Ju^"
possess exceptional  qualifications for
tho task."    He goes on to refer to the
central consultative committee which
was   reconstructed   by   resolutions   of
the fifth Lambeth conference In lilOS.

practical counsel upon the particular

Over Twelve Hundred Workmen Killed at Work.
The toll of death from Industrial
accidents throughout Canada during
tbe year 1912, as shown in a report
Just published, cost the lives of no
less than 1,220 workmen,.while 5,780
received serious injuries. Thus 7,000
workers in Canada's industrial army
met with fatal or serious accidents
while in the discharge of their duty
during the twelve months.
An analysis of the record of accidents, as made by the Labor Department .shows that the railway ervices
and the metal trades are by far the
most hazardous employments.
On Canadian steam railways 332
employes were killed during the
year, and 1,831 were injured, a somewhat startling total. In addition to
tbat there were 152 men killed in
railway construction work, and 111
injured. In the metal trails 103
men were killed and 1,326 were injured.
1 Navigation is comparatively a safe
railing. The total number of fatali-
tic. among those employed in navigation was 69, and non-fatal accidents
totalled only 62.
In the building trades tho fatal accidents totalled 90, and non-fatal accidents 298.    The   collapse   of scaf- !
folds,  etc.,   a  preventible  cause,  ac- I

Ontario Aids I'ur Farming.
The fur farming Industry is iStriving in Ontario at such a rate* that
demands made upon the officials of
Algonquin I'ark for animals for
breeding purposes cannot be* supplied.
At the last session of the Legislature It arranged ihat animals migbt
be procured from the park by parties
who wished   them,  at  these    prices:
Beaver $60, mink  (35,  marten  $80,
j and   fisher   $126    to    $180.     All    of
these furs have a high market value, i
t and   the growing  demand   for   them
I had  increased  the  price  to  such  an
i extent that some farmers can realize
| more  from  fur  than  from   beef  and
| cow hides,  butter and  eggs.
The Ontario Government bas given   every    assistance    to    the    new '
phase  of  fur  farming,   by   capturing
animals in  the Government park "at j

HARD TIMES! A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every
year in publicity has established a
significant rule. Whenever he notices a slowing up of business he increases
his advertising. This is the reason: "When
business is booming it is unnecessary to
fight for it���it comes of itself; but when
business is slow I insist on having my share
of it, and the easiest way to get it is by calling attention to my goods. I do not wait for
hard times. I scent them in the distance,
and before anybody else gets busy I make
my contracts for advertising on a big scale
and get my orders in before my competitors
know what I am doing." The logic and common sense of the attitude of this gentleman
account in large part for the remarkable
success he has achieved

The Poor Man's
"ONESknows more about motor
cars than any other man I
know,"  said   a man   to his
friend.   " He has obtained his
knowledge chiefly from motor car advertise*
ments,   and   the   catalogues   and   booklets
circulated through them.''
" All I know about photography," declared a well-
known amateur, " I have learned from the men who
advertise cameras, plates, papers and films."
Advertisements have been
well called "The Poor Man's
University," but other than
poor men have been schooled
Much of what the average individual knows concerning personal and domestic hygiene, modern
office methods, books and authors, electricity, precious stones, investments, and almost everything else,
he has learned from advertisements.
Advertisements have stimulated our intelligence,
added enormouslv to our knowledge, and given us
aspirations wV h have raised us to higher levels of
thinking and l.��.ing. Advertising is indeed "The

Craft Travels Overland to Enter Service of Mining Company on
Quesnel  Lake.
Ashcroft. March 9.���The unique project of taking a vessel from the coast
overland to Quesnel lake, in the interior of tbe Cariboo district, has just
been accomplished. To the efforts
of William Carse of Vancouver belongs tiie honor tor it is the first
steamer over the famous Cariboo trail.
From the coa.st to Ashcroft by rail
over the C. P. R. was but a pleasure
jaunt, lt was the haul from Ashcroft
to Quesnel Forks that the real task
began and would have proven a barrier to anyone save William Parker,
and had not his long years of experience In carrying freight over this
world-famed trail stood him in good
stead, the journey, even then might
have been abandoned. With only six
miles separating tbem from their goal
the remainder of the journey to Quesnel lake was easily accomplished.
The presence of the steamer on the
lake will prove of great value to timber lease holders and lumbermen who
must, according to the provincial government, have their leases surveyed
���by the end of 1014    But for Mr. Carse

of the deported men is Mr. ,T. H. Bain,
I secretary of the Transvall Federation
of Trades.   He was a member of the
I Johannesburg town council.
Mr, Bain has had a picluresqup ca-

against the miners as a spy on the
l:ilanders. He became a burgher

pri: oner and deported to Ceylon.
From Ceylon he went to Colore1 do

which led up to tiie strike at the gold-

extreme Syndicalist, returned from

among  the  Syndicalists.

The waters of tho inlet swarmi'd
with lish of the most delicious varie- ;

might be caught is seen in the fact
that when 1 fancied a fish for tea "T
breakfast I would stand on the rocks
with my line and. to save the trouble
of cutting up, thro,** hack the fish as
they came until I hooked one not. only
of a favorite sort, bul also of a isize

sport I used to go out in my boat.
I was fairly lucky at digging, averaging 7s. 6d. fot every day I worked.
But I didn't work every day. About

W. O. Mill r. One of the Most Eminent In the Dominion.
Mr. Willet (Ireen Miller. Provincial
Geologist of Ontario, wbo was recently honored by being tendered a public dinner at Toronto, which was attended by maty leading men from
all parts of Canada, is one of the most
eminent of th�� practical geologists of
Cam da. He has, been prominent ia
exploration work in the coal mines ot
th- Canadian Atlantic coast, tbe silver mines of Ontario, and the gold
mines of the Biitisl Columbia Kootenay. Mr. Miller graduated from Toronto University and accepted a position as assistant in field geology in
the Canadian geological survey, and
later accepted a position as lecturer
Ir geology and petrography, at
Queen's University. Later ' a was promoted to a professorship and, eleven
years ago, was appointed provincial
geologist and inspector of mines fo*
Ontario. He had already, while at
Queen's, done useful geological work
for the provincial geological department, in charge of Eastern Ontario
field work for tbe Bureau of Mines.
Mr. Miller's success has been due
to his efforts to make bis geological
investigations of practical value to
prospectors and miners, holding tbat
tbe geologist is merely the scientific
explorer and guide for the prospector
and miner. He was born in the
Township of North Walsingham,
County of Norfolk, and educated at
Port Rowan High School, before going to Toronto University, where he
took his B. A. with first class honors
in natural science, and later his M.A.
Subsequently he studied at the Universities of Chloago, Harvard 'and
Heidelberg, Queen's University,
Kingston conferred upon him the
honorary degree of LL.D. He is also
an F.R.S.G. and an honorary member
of tbe Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. He was president of the Canadian Mining Institute for two years
and a delegate to the International
Geological Congress at Mexico. He is
the author of Minerals and How They
Occur," and of papers on geological
and mining subjects in several periodicals and in the annual reports of
the Bureau of Mines. He was appointed a governor of Kingston
School of Mining three years ago.������

Canadian Peaches.
Large    consignments    of   Ontario
pi aches have again been made to th!
British markats tsH year.    The favorable reception accorded to Ontario*
fruit has created considerable  interest among the peach-growers in tha
province, and tie export trade bear?
every sign of reaching large proportions.    Maturing as it does about October,   the   Ontario   crop  reaches  tc
Great  Britain  in  between  the South
African,   English   and   French   peacb
seasons.      So   tar  t.s  Ontario  Im   concerned   this  expert    traded    is  an  ex-
extremely  important  factor.     In  tbe
early days, when there was only the
local market to supply, the area set
to   peaches    was   restricted.    Later,
when the ma-ketn of the west were
opened, th-i supply was fund insufficient, with  the  rciul*.  .hat   fur'her
lands were put under crop.   At one
time it w&s commrnly supposed that
the lands on which peaches could be
profitably raised were confined to the*
Niagara  distric',  and  thi  land   bordering the lakes.    When a few years
ago the first shipments were made to
G-eat Britain, the growers found they
could   make   far  larger   profits,   antl
each successive years there has beeei.
. ruE'  to join this profitable businecs.
Tbe experimenters goc ro work, anil-
found  out  that   many  areas   which*
were not consider d suitable for tha
o itivations of  peaches have  turnred
out  to   be  satisfy tory  in  every   respect.    There is every prospect that
the peach  area will  be  very  much,
widened in the fiuure.
Victoria, March 9. -After having Inflicted a slight knife wound on liis
neck in an effort to do away with
himself, Thomas Robertson threw
himself into the Millstream creek,
near Parsons bridge. The opportune
presence "f J, Price, of the Six Mile
house, undoubtedly saved the man's
life, Mr. Price pulled Robertson ou:
of the water and I lien notified the
provincial police department Constable It. Owens went out to the hotel
and brought Robertson Into the city
lock-up, where he will be retained
pending an Itmstigution into his actions.
Robertson at flr,st claimed he had
slipped and fallen upon his knife, but
afterwards admitted he had attempted to do away with himself, asserting
he was out of work and despondent.
At Uie police station he was stripped
of his water-soaked garnfents and
rollid In warm blankets. All he possessed was the knife and a sweepstake ticket, the number of which, he
confessed, he did not look upon as
likely to prove lucky.

harbor fill occasioned some discussion
on the class of material that has been
supplied iu the past, and was indicative of the purpose of the new com-
iitittie   to see that the city gets all it
pays for.
When the recommendation was read
Alderman   Goulet,   a   member   cf   the
harbor committee, stated that the sup-
ply in the past had not been sat:.-' ���..*���
, tory anil  Alderman  Ann-indale, chair
1 man of the committee was also of the
j opinion that there was good cause for
complaint    Alderman  Annandale said
that he had pointed out to tie harbor
engineer that the gravel being used,
1 was not of lie* best, but in  this  the
| engineer did not agree and said it was
I the  best  for the  purpose.    The engi-'
; neer admitted, however, ihat in some ���
: cases the supply was not up to speci- I
; fieations. Some of the gravel had been :
' rejected,   said   Alderman    Annandale
| but  some had been used of which 50
, per cent was soil.
T'-,e contract was awarded  but  the
supply must be according to specifica-
, tions and will be rejected if not satis- ]
The following contracts were award-'

supply gravel and boulder stone f.o.b.

Ottawa, March 9.���A deputation
from the associated boards of Ontario
headed by J. W. Curran of the Daily-
Star, Satilt Ste.  Marie; James Lyons,
Mayor of Steclton; Cyril Young of
North Hay are here to interview the
government with regard to the iron
mines situation. The associated boards
passed a resolution at a conference
held two weeks ago asking the government to give such aid to the production of ore in Canada as would
put this important iiidust.-y^on its feet.
It is claimed fiat since 1910 when
the bounty on pig iron expired, the
mining of ore in Canada had receded
almost to the vanishing point. In 1913
there was only one ton of Canadian
materia! used tn Canadian blast furnaces out of every twenty-two and a
half tons of the total amount used. The
reason the government is asked to
give aid is to help defray the cost of
solving the low grade ore proposition
in Canada. There are practically no
high grade iron ores in Canada, By
a curious freak of nature tie ores on
the south fliore of lake Superior are
biigh grade, while those to the north
are high in sulphur, phosphorus and
other impurities, whio'i make it necessary that these ores should be treated
before they can be used in the blast
The Algoma Steel Corporation has
spent enormous sums in endeavoring
to solve the problems involved. It is
claimed, however, that the government must do this work just as it has
developed agriculture for instance.
The* delegation say that aid is wanted
to help in taking of iron ore out of the
ground In Canada instead of sending
millions of dollars to the United States
for it. As an instance the Algoma
Steel Corporation, they say. bought
$2,000,000 worth in 1913 and expect to
buy twice as much shortly. As every
ton or ore raised from the ground
cost $2 in labor, the proper encorage-
ment of iron mining, they say, is a
most attractive idea from the labor
standpoint. There an* immense bodies
of iron ore in Ontario and Quebec and
the development of the industry will
mean much to the citizens of Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Practically
every dollar spent in the districts referred   to would  go  to  these cities.
.). .1. Carrick, M.l'., will introduce
the BUhject in the house on Tuesday
when tin* house is in supply. He has
the promise of a good deal of support
from both sides of the louse. The government is sympathetic but docs not
[eel like taking action without going
| into the sii!jje*(-t  more fully.
Washington, March 9.���Two departments of the United States government aro engaged In seeking information as to the circumstances under
which the body of Clemente Vergara,
an American horse dealer, supposed
tc have been killed by Mexican federal soldiers near Hidalgo, Mexico, was
found early Sunday on the American
isde of the Rio Grande.
A telegram to the state departmentII
today from American Consul Garrett |]
at Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, informed the
department that the body had been
found and that details would be reported by mail. No mention was made
of reports that Texas Rangers crossed
the border Saturday night and brought
the body back, reporting their action
to Governor Colquitt. The slow process did not satisfy Secretary Bryan
who promptly wired tiie consul to
make his report by telegraph and this
is now being awaited.

advantage ot the new parcels post, system recently inaugurated by the Canadian post, office department, will be
