London, March 1.���Ulster is for the
moment obscured by the controversy
over  the   deportation   of   the    South
African   labor  leaders   by  the   I'nion
government.    This, not so much because of the questions regarding    Its
legality,  which will, It is understood,
be  tested   both   in   the   British    and
African  courts, but more on account
of the belief that, the affair will still
turther  separate  the  ministerial  and
labor  parties.    It   has  been apparent
for  some considerable  time that the
union and  parliamentary  leaders are
tosing   their  control  of  the  mass  of
trade  unionists and  workers.    These'
have shown Increasing "signs of taking their own course  irrespective of

just passed by the South African parliament will be rejected. General
Botha has followed up his drastic action by introducing a measure conferring legal rights on the government little distinguishable from the
extraordinary powers exercised under
martial law. Logically, the labor
party would also refuse this bill,
should it pass, also to be reserved
for the pleasure of the Imperial authorities. There is no doubt, however, that South Africa will be left at
liberty to work out its problem in Its
own way. Any attempt to fetter its
responsible government would introduce questions of the deepest concern to the whole empire.
Over home rule the government is
iust marking time, to the intense
chagrin of everyone of the opposition

MONDAY   MORNING,  MARCH  2,  1914.
Austrians. Poles, Russians, Greeks
and Italians are pouring in by thousands. Most of them are undesirable
and of the duties and responsibilities
of citizenship they have but the haziest, notions.
They are a perpetual problem to
medical health officers, for they delight to crowd together under absolutely unsanitary conditions. I have
been in boarding houses in Toronto
conducted by foreigners for foreigners
and found the bathroom let as a bedroom, while from the appearance of
the bath I should imagine it had not
been used for months. Even In mining and lumber camps these people
herd together under conditions that
make thorn an easy prey to tuberculosis and typhoid fever. They have no
perception of the danger of contagion,
and neglect the simplest precautions.
Wlll  Not Learn  Readily.
It is not to he supposed they will
learn readily, for they have centuries
of unfavorable environment against
them. To force cleanliness and sanitary conditions upon them may be possible by prosecution and fine, but to
give them a true understanding of
British institutions and teach them
that the liberties guaranteed them
are not to be treated as license will
be another and more difficult matter.
It ls certain that the number of such
people that can be assimilated without injury to the nation is limited, and
Canada will either be compelled to
keep a check on the immigration or
be prepared to have for ever an alien
laboring class whose evolution and
ideals and standards of living are different from hers.
Already the stream of Immigrants
is bringing a taint of criminality to
the country. In 1911 practically half
the persons convicted of indictable offences were immigrants, a class forming only 22,1 per cent, of the total population. Surely this is sufficient warning that the whole fabric of the democracy will suffer unless more care
is i'hown in the1 selection of material.

is sure and that is that New Westminster, with its wealthy
resources back of it, will be among the first cities on the
coast to feel the rebound to better times and, after a year
or more of real tight money, a few weeks longer are not
going to be so hard to bear.
JUST STOP TO THINK.
While we are waiting for the ripple of better times
on the financial ocean to reach us from the London centre,
there are some who still persist in going abroad with large
well developed grouches, preaching dark blue ruin and no
end of poor business. These emissaries of the spirit of
hard luck usually are men who have been working for salaries for years, who get their money whether it rains or
shines and who have too much idle time on their hands in
which to make good the old saw concerning the ability of
the head of the sulphur trust to provide evil employment
for those who are open to it
Over against the case which the professional grouches
are trying to make out are several stiff facts which cannot be gotten over. It is a certainty that money now is
easier in London, much easier, and that where formerly
the money barons were holding their chins high, now. they
are chasing each other around the market corners seeking
to place their hoarded savings before the rates drop.
While it is true that these conditions obtain in London, it cannot be expected that points at this distance will
this: In many cases the tuberculous
afflicted can go on with their work
and still be under efficient treatment.
Hygiene is the physician's real aid
today ���fresh air. Good food. Regular life. These build up t'.ie body to resist."
"Dr. Harding, do you believe, with
all your experience, that a serum will
yet be discovered that will radically
cure the white plague?" the reporter
ventured.
"1 do. Research experimentalists
are always groping after a perfect
serum, and an absolute specific will
yet be found for tuberculosis. Vou
see, the Koch tuberculin we today use
is not the spiK'ific of ISftl. It is a
modified serum. Tho modification
means always less reliction with better results. The experience is there-
tore always progressive, and makes
up hope."
"That is to say. that the time may
soon come' when a person In the second stage of tuberculosis can come
to the Royal Kdward institute ami receive into his blood by injection a serum which will destroy utterly the
destructive bacilli and restore him to
good health? Vou believe that, doctor?'
"I do absolutely."
"Will il heal lesions?" the reporter
continued.
"Ves. Hut not repai. them. .Meantime, let me give a sound warning.
The cure of consumption today Is not
a serum It is hygiene. Let everyone follow the rules of good health and
abide by them. That is my sole advice."

The  really  disquieting    feature    is
that tiie least desirable elements are
��� making   the   fastest   percentage     In-
| creases.   Canada is less an Anglo-Sax-
j on country today than it was a decade
ago,  the  immigration    from     Britain
| and   the  United  States  having  fallen
j to about 77 per cent, of the whole, in
I WI the British and French elements
I f.-rmed 87.74 per cent, of the popula-
I tion.  In  1911  only  82.58.    During the
decade  the    largest    percentage    Increases  were:     Bulgarians and   Roumanians, from 354 to ei,S75;  Grecians
from 291 to 3,594;  Austro-Hungarians
(Austrians,    Bukovinians,    Gallcians,
Hungarians   and   Kuthenieinsi,     from
18,178  to  129,103;   Finnish   from   ���.'.502
to 16,497; Polies-h, from 6.295 to 33,S65j
Italians  from  10.S.-M   to  45.411;     Jews
from 16,131 to 73.GS1;  unclassified nationalities, from  1.460 to 18,310.    Observe  the preponderance  cf the  Slav
and  southern  European   elements  in
the list, and consider if this is for the
gocd  of the  future of  t'.ie  Canadian
nation.    During the same  period  the,
Chinese   population    rose   to   27,774. j
and   the  Japanese   to   9,021.     Canada

Englishman  Says  Less  Desirable   Immigrants Are  Coming  Faster
Than   Desirable.
Writing in the Sydney (Australia)
Morning Herald, Charles !���'. Sligo, an
Englishman, who Bpent several months
iii Toronto, says:
Canada may be likened to a vaBt
mortar, ln which a new nationality Is
being founded out of a large number
of Ingredients.    The  racial, national,
and sectional Interests In Canada are
exceedingly numerous, There are thi
Canadians themselves expressing their
own national consciousness bo far as
it   lias   been   aroused;   settlers   from
Qreat Britain;   eager dollar    hunters
from the United States the placid Arcadians  the   French   Canadian   popu

Ment real,   March   1.���A   Neve   York
j telegram states that Koch's tuberculin
discovery   now   proves   a   success,   as

"A ni wspaper advertisement in one

physician of th" Royal EdwaTd Institute, Bi '.i,rent pari*;, after he had perused the report, to a reporter, "but

The Cells Have <iiven Us Some of Our
Unt'st  Literature.
Byron's famous poem, "Tbe Prisoner of Chilton," is supposed to be
written  by  Bonnivard, tbe Genevan
patriot, whilst he was Incarcerated in
the-Chateau of Chiilon, on the shores
of tbe lake.   Hut the poem wac really
| written at lightning speed whilst By-
; ron  was   Imprisoned   by   inclement
; weather for a night and a day ln tbe
��� neighborhood.
I     Nevertheless, some notable literary
achievements nave oeen really written in Jail, undoubtedly the most outstanding being two   of   the   world's
greatest classics, "The Adventures of
illon   Quixote"   and   "The   Pilgrim's
i Progress."    If only those two books
i had belonged to the literature of captivity tbey would have been sufficient
to make that literature distinguished
and Immortal.
Thomas Cooper. the Chartist,
whose life reads like a romance, and
whose name ts held In reverence by
modern reformers, wrote a remarkable poem whilst he was lying In
prison on account of his political
agitation. This poem bears tbe remarkable title of "The Purgatory of
Suicides," and when It was published It created a very considerable stir
In tbe literary world, for It bad
emanated from the brain of a man
who bad begun life as a cobbler and
bad made himself matter of tbe
Creek language and literature.
Another remarkable poem written
In prison Is "The Ballad of Heading
Jail." by Oscar Wilde, whose remarkable and most sombre bonk,
"De Profundls," was also written
there. These two books are amongst
the saddest records in tbe history ot
literature.
It ought not to be forgotten that
one of the greatest tetters ever written was penned In a dungeon In
Home. This is the Kpistle of Saint
Paul to the Coiossians, a piece of
literature, quite apart from Its
sacred character, which is very hard
to   beat.
It is very seldom that a newspaper
has heen edited from the Inside ot
a cell, but even this feat was accomplished by the late lamented \V. T.
Stead, who during the two months
he spent In prison for an pJTence
which many condoned and which a
number admired, be wrote scores of
: .tides and practically conducted *Hs

Christmas festivities ia said to have
its origin in the idea tbat since the
plant did not bave Ita roots in tbe
ground no part of It should ever be
permitted  to touch tbe earth.
Among tbe Saxons tbe fact tbat
mistletoe was suspended from th)
roof of a dwelling intli ated to the
wayfarer tbat the hospitality of tbe
house was at his disposal, and beneath its branches friend and stranger, vassal and lord, gathered together In comradeship and good cheer.
Tbe religious aspect of the ml-itle-
toe tradition, wblcb bad Its origin In
the Druidical rites and , to gathering
of it by tbe Arcbdruid with bis golden sickle, merged later into a purely
social symbol, and tbe Idea of simple hospitabilty developed Into one of
merrymaking and a somewhat riotous
entertainment.
Tbe kiss of tbe Scandinavian goddess expanded Into tbe custom of a
kiss given for every berry that grew
on tbe bough. Small wonder tbat, in
spite of tbe mistletoe having origind-
ly existed In the o-.or of sanctity, the
church came to regard It an an entirely pagan symbol and refused to allow
it to participate with the holly and
the evergreen In tbe Yuletlde decorations.
There is an ancient belief that tbe
mistletoe  was  tbe  tree  from  which
, tbe  Holy Cross was newn and that
I after this was made tbe plant wltb-
! ered  and ever afterward  became a
mere   parasite   growth, clinging for
support to other and sturdier trees.
Other stories, however, credit it
' with divine "gifts In the healing of

Ham. the high priest of the Celts,
received In a dream the intimation
that by means of tbe plant he would
be enabled to sive his people from
the plague wblcb was decimating

instituted the Feast of Noel (new
health), a midwinter holiday which
ba3 come to be considered coincident
witb the new y ar.
ln many parts of the United Kingdom tbe silver berries and the gray-
green leaves oi the mistletoe are looked upon as anything but an emblem
of good cheer; on the coulrary. the
plant Is regarded with dread as being
tbe brlnger ot 111 luck and the sign
of 111 omen. This supirsti ion exhn.s

There behind that obviously prosaic truck-load of freight was the whole romance
of modern commerce-the skilled production, the universal demand for food, drink
and raiment, and the world-wide distribution of the things we use every day.
And then I speculated why we use these things every day, instead of some other
things; and that brought me plump back to my own job of advertising.
The names of some of the boxes on the lorrie were known everywhere to-day, but
had been unknown a few years ago; and I saw then more clearly than ever before
that Advertising is really a great channel digger. It is like the Panama Canal. You
can sail from Montreal to Vancouver now, around the Horn. You can get there,
but it is going to bake months. A year or so from now you will sail through the
Panama Canal and chop the journey to less than half. A new channel will have
been dug.
The ereat names in commerce to-day are those of the manufacturers who have let
modern advertising steam-shovel a channel across the isthmus of distributing
difficulties.
The great names in the commerce of to-morrow will be those of men who widen and
dredge this channel so that the greater traffic may pass smoothly and quickly from
the source oi production to the homes of the consumer.

COQUITLAM DEFEATS ROVERS
IN THIRD A TTEMPT 3-0
Locals    Lose    Out   on Cambie Street
Ground���Port City Will Meet
B. C. E. R.
After having battled  for u total of
tour hours In   two   previous   games
without any definite result, the West--
lninati r Hovers were forced to accept
defeat at lhe hands of the, Coquitlam ;
eleven on lhe Cambie street grounds,
Vancouver,  .Saturday,  the final  soore
being 3-0.    The result  was never    iu |
doubt, for while the railwayites were |
staging their best display of the season the locals were floundering with-
out any appreciable    display    of    cooperation, neither   the forwards   nor
the  bnck division  showing    any    Inclination to work  in harmony.
Coquitlam won on Its merits and
the Itoyai City fans are well content:
to doff lh" lid and admit thai Hi"
Port City aggregation ranks as the
best balanced team on tiie lower
mainland today. The nunus -won by
the railway oentre have been through
ihe happy knack of each man knowing his team mule and entering each
game with the idea that a contest is
never won or lost until 'he final
whistle is sounded.
Made Good  Showing.
On the Rovers side of the case they
at least have Un* consolation of
knowing   that   it   took   three   games.
two  of  which   were  overtime   battle,
before tbey were forced    to bite    the
dust to the leading team of the Van-1
couver and  District  league.    Such a
display is a ready answer to
of certain  soccer  men  In   ihe Terminal City who,    up    to    the    present
time, have ignored the    demands    of
recognition by Westminster, and is aiucrers,
clear demonstration  of the fact that; tjle
football
have
for second place in soccer
on the mainland the Hovers
clear out claim.
Likely Cup Winners.
Saturday's win for the Coquitlam
players practically gives them posses
sion of the Mainland cup, as the next
opponent, the Vancouver II, C. I'I K.,
has been trounced twice this winter
and should prove easy victims in the
next   round.
In Sea of Mud.
Weather conditions at Vancouver
were anything but bright on Saturday,
a steady downpour of rain setting in
lire iu fin* morning which left the
playing patch a sea of mud. This
eliminated all hopes of accurate
placements, although the mud did no'
appear to hamper ihe black and gold
so much as it did the Hovers. In the
last 16 minutes the Coquitlam defence
was tested thoroughly. Marshall,
Miller and Worrall having a busy
time repelllnlg the attacks.
Referee Leach handled the game
before a  fairly  large crowd.

Overtime Games.
During the present season the eastern  fans have been treated to    some
stellar hockey on the N. H, A. circuit
j which  has brought  the old organlza-
the cry | t|0I,   back  Into  favor and  Saturday's
games were no    exception.    It    took
three  minutes  overtime  at   Montreal
for the Canadiens to defeat the Wan-
Berllnquette   finally   working
puck into the net.    Sammy Lich-
j tenliein's crew    have    little    use    for
a I George    Kennedy's    Canadiens    and
| with   the  players  back   in  shape,    it
was  a   nip    and    tuck    affair    even
though   the  jce  was in  sloppy  condition.
Ottawas Won at Toronto.
Tho game at Toronto between the
Ottawas and Ontarios even went better as far as overtime is concerned,
Hi extra minutes of playing being
necessary before Jack Darragh scored
the deciding goal. Due to the lowly-
position of the Ontarios. ihe crowd
was a small one, but the game Itself
was the best of the season, Darragh
played his usual line game, the veteran using the grey matter In the overtime period in order to secure the decision. The final score was 3-^.
Torontos Lost to Quebec.
At Quebec the Stanley cuppers had
it over Torontos from the first face-
off, but only by a shade, the game
ending 6-3 lor Quebec, Fast ice enabled both teams to hit a terrific
puce throughout the 60 minutes play.
Cameron played his best game and
was head and shoulders above any of
his team mates. Mummery and
Malone featured for the Ancient City.

Sullivan,  111.,    March  1.���Frederick
W. Meniierieli was kill* d today by an
infernal machine sent to bim by mail
Lom Decatur, 111.    He llrst refused to
accept the package,    but   finally    de- ]
cided that his ability as un expert re- |
pair   man   would   prevent   Ignition   of i
the  explosive  and  attempted   to   pry I
open tiie lit tie tin box.
Mennerich   was  terribly  mutilated. ;
but  lived  two hours  after  the  dyna-
mite  had exploded.    The only  words
he spoke after    the explosion    were,
"what lias happened."
Part of the house was torn away
by the blast.
Mennerich's wife from whom he
had been separated several months
vvas taken into custody a'. Springfield,
111., as a witness, but was later released. The case was reported tc
tbe federal officers, who believe that
former companions of Meniierieli in
counterfeiting may have sent him tbe
machine.
Mennerich received the package by
mail Kriday. It had been mailed in
Decatur Thursday. Mennerich wrote
a letter io his wife in Springfield
i telling her about the package. Finally
he decided to open it as he knew how-
to do without causing an explosion,
1 if the box proved to be a container
of dynamite.
This letter was not mailed. It was
found unsealed in the yard later. This
fact led the sheriff to believe that
possibly Mennerich had made the
machine himself to cover up suicide.
Died This Morning.

Some idea of the difficulties that

gained from the fact that on '.lis las-

different tribes, each of them with a
separate and distinct language, which
in no single instance has been reduc
ed to writing.
"The Australian native," Prof. Spencer explained, "represents the most
primitive type of mankind surviving
anywhere. In all Its main aspects the
life of these aboriginal tribes reflects
accurately, so fur as we can tell, the
childhood of the human race. While
the rest of mankind has evolved al a
faster or slower rate, the Australian

��� On top of that is superimposed the to
tern   system,   which   adds   further  extensive  restrictions.    II   is  as  if  the \
tribes  were  first  divided   into  Smiths ',
and   Joneses,   every   Mr.   Smith   heing '
compelled   to   inairy   a   Mils     Jones.
Then for totem reasons you gel a fur
ther division under which a  Mr. Kan-1
garoo Smith  must many only a   Miss
Waterhen   Joms.    Mori'    than     that, i
every Miss Waterhen Jones is theoretically  the  wife of every   Mr.   Kan-'
garoo Smith, though, as  a   matter of
fart, in  practice something like mon-;
ogamy prevails"
lt is. after all, as Prof.
��� plays so large a part    in their toteni-
llstic ritual. Unfortunately, he is very
pessimistic as to the future of the
black, who is incurably Impractical, ir-
1 responsible   and   Incapable     of   work.
. Contact with western civil Lea tion has
already    involved    terrible      ravages
1 from drink and disease.
"The only hope I see," said Prof.
Spencer, "is to segregate the    natives
1 and  to try and educatP the children.
! The older people are absolutely inra-
j pable of instruction. Along these lines
ihe commonwealth government and
some of the state legislatures are al-
ready doing their best to solve the
problem."
Problem for Australia.
Speaking of the relations of lhe commonwealth government with these
primitive people, Prof. Spencer said
that one of the first thing.-- it did after
taking over the northern territory was
! to attempt to deal with tho aboriginal
problem.    The aborigine's are believed
I to number about 40.0011 or so.iioo.
The great, danger is that if they
come in Contact with white people,
and especially wilh Asiatics, they not
only become degraded, but. disease
spreads rapidly among them. Thn
commonwealth government founded a
department of aboriginal  affairs, and
: appointed  a  chief  protector and  four
. or five other protectors,
"These people are extremely difficult,   to  deal   with,   because   they   are
; pure nomads, and quite unaccustomed
to any kind of industry or agriculture," in said. "The problem is how
to keep them from coming Into contact with a higher civilization and yet
'. ti   Teat  them  fairly.
"Australia   has  to  gel   white  people
1 into this vast northern territory, which
is four and a half times as big as
Oreat Britain, and has only one white
person to every 450 square miles. It
is quite a mistaken impression that
this territory is a desert, lt la very-
well watered with great permanent
rivers and any amount of food, so
thi re is no reason why it should not
Sustain  a   prosperous  population.   Rut
; lo settle it means taking land from
tin   aborigines.
Segregate Them.
"The onlj   way  of doing it is b
formation   cf   large   reserves,   so
of social reform.    It will be held under   the  auspices  of  the  Social   Service  council  of  Canada  and   the  na-
on committee tor the suppression of

The subject of plum culture is treated iu a bulletin of 72 pages issued by

Nash  �����  Co.-The statement of Ottawa Power earnings    for    the    past
year was not so  satisfactory as had
been expected and there is a feeling
that the  half yearly  bonus  of 1   per
cent, may be cut out.   If so it will be
the first reduction in the dividend of
the company for many  years,  if no
the first in history and therefore we
think  it  very  probable that  no  such I
thing    will    happen.    The    earnings!
should be    considerably    bet;er    this
' year when the new plant is completed
and other improvements begin to bear
fruit.    However, even on    an    8    per
cent, basis at  145  the stock  returns
! 5   per   cent,   which   is   quite   satisfac-
' lory   considering    the    future    pros-

Only the other day, an old man

A coupie of years ago, a tragci'y
happened In a street In Berlin wblcb

Frankfurter, who was well known to
pedestrians In the German capital,
suddenly fell down dead while he was
engaged in plying his trade of asking
for alms from the charitable. Wben
his clothes were examined by the police, securities wo th $45,000 were

A man who was arreatod for begging at Muolan, In Switzerland, was
found to have bank notes to the value

who died a few years 3lnce ln Metz,
left behind her $37,500.

Rome, March 1. -The police here
have discovered a complicated organization for robbing the state railways
by trickery with passengers' hag-
gage.
The director of the scheme is a certain music hall manager. Cresus Bous-
quet, who conceived it as a get-rich-
quick plan for needy comedians. He
obtained special trunks of various
sizes, which were filled with sand
I from a river bed and then pasted
wiflh labels for different destinations.
It wus the confederate music hall
artist's part to make a preliminary
declaration Unit his baggage contained
valuable theatrical property, then travel to some prearranged destination,
and make a terrible row because the
baggage had not arrived.
Broken  contracts   were  spoken  of,
and  the  music-hall  manager,    or  his
agents, would come forward to claim
[ a heavy indemnity for pretended post-
| ponement  of  performances.
.Meantime, several employees of the
railways, being parties to the conspiracy, were removing the trunks at
junctions during tiie journey and af-
lixinig false duplicate numbers corresponding  to   those  of  receipts   lipid
by the gang for luggage belonging to
oilier passengers.
Half a dozen of these artful swind
lers are now under arrest, and Hous*
HUet has made a confession involving
govi riinieiit employees.
Several heavy losses have been recently incurred by passengers on the
railways, and  a lady  named  Puslnatl
last   week  lost   $10,(100  worth  of   tine
I  hie  in  her luggage.
It is asserted that the money paid

WATCHES THE CLOUDS.
Well
One New Yorker's Easy and
Paid, but Important, Job.
There ls one man ln New Vork who
svould seem to hold an easy and nnlque
Job. From Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 be puts ln
ilia whole time watching for clouds
from the top of one of the tallest skyscrapers. He does nothing else, ls well
paid if be performs his duty vigilantly
and has no one to boss or bustle him
around���except tbe clouds. For tools
lie works with a telescope, and be can
smoke, read poetry or do what he
pleases, provided be keeps bis weather
eye keenly peeled for the first sign Of
a storm cloud sweeping down the Hudson. On that rests his whole Job, for
should a thunderstorm catch him napping lt would mean a serious strain on
the leading electric light and power
company.
In no other city but New Tork do
conditions make for such a contingency   Owing to the compact construction
of the huge blocks of downtown skyscrapers an enormous amount of electric light is suddenly demanded -whenever the sky becomes darkened.   Thousands   uf   bulbs   aro   simultaneously
switched on.    At nightfall this need
for light is easily calculated, but no
certain provision can be made against
the sudden  overshadow  of a  storm
cloud otjbs-r than or sUrJonin* �� joofc.
**a* man oa tho top ot a skyscraper.
Consequently wben bo ooes a clond
sweeping down tbe Hudson or advancing trom Any other direction it is bis
business to watch its approach carefully.
Therein be mast nse a bit of Judgment If It is likely to sweep clear of
tbe city be need not bother about lt
Bat should he reckon It wlll pass over
Manhattan it ls bis business to telephone the chief power station a warning tbat a storm cloud is coming. At
once a red light glows ln tbe engine
room, and tbe stokers bustle to shovel
coal Into tbe furnaces. Presently the
huge generators revolve at greater
speed to supply tbe emergency demand
for electricity. Thus when the thou-
���sands of jlghts are switched on downtown few are likely to guess bow the
sudden call for light has been met.
Menu while the cloud watcher ts ln
no fear that a mechanical device will

Course of the Panama Canal.
There is a somewhat popular delusion ubout the Panama canal���to wit,
Hint the course from Colon, on the
Caribbean or Atlantic side of tiie Isthmus, to Panama, ou the Pacific side, is
from east to west. Of course the Atlantic Is at the east und tbe Pncilic is
nt the west, but the Isthmus Is very
crooked and nt Ibis point tends from a
little south of west to north of east,
and Colon is actually farther west
than Panama. As a result the canal
runs from north-north west to south-
southeast, and ou reaching the Pacific
one finds himself further east than he
was When Ile left the Atlantic. Queer,
Isn't iL to go westward by going eastward? Hut It's a geographical fact all
the same, which few realize until they

Canine  Etiquette.
In  their  relations one  with  another
| dogs  have a   keen  sense  of etiquette.
lluless they are on very Ultimate terms
they take great  pains  never to brush
against   or   even   lunch   one   another,
Kor one dog to step over another is a
dangerous  breach  of  etiquette  unless
fbey are special friends,    lt Is no uncommon thing for two dogs to belong
to the same person ami live in tbe
same  house  and  yet  never  take  the
slightest   notice   of   each   other.     We
bave a spaniel so dignified that he will
never permit another member of tbe

aristocrat he does not hesitate to make

The New Vork Times In a lengbhy
iditorlal under tl"* captloa of "Profits
.-r Oovnrnment," compliments Hon
Mr. Robb on the Idea. The New York
paper  Bays;
"The British Columbia minister of
lands last week in 1 rod need a bill providing for a government regulai ion of
prices on lumber from the public pro*
port} and fixing the royalties to be
paid by those working in tin* timber
lands In proportion to the prices. The
lumbermen are said to approve the
idea and tile government expects to
get (2,600,000 annually while retaining
the land from which the Umber is
taken..
"it Is singular that the Idea of as
sociating prices and profits from the
proceeds of public resource? hai been
so tardy in arriving. Hither! 1 bhe
problem has i.c-u attacked from thi
point of reducing the excess of profits
of such exploitation by taxation Thai
only makes the product more costly
to the consumer, without reducing the
profit to the exploiter,

far as practicable, as a trust to be ad-1
m'J Istered for the general benefit, not
mainly   as   affording   opportunity   for]
privileged exploitation.    Because, perhaps, the timber resources of the continent   have  been   thought  inexhaustible    a sadly mistaken view    the prin-1
ciple has never properly imbedded  it* |
srlf   as a matter of cardinal policy���
in  the public mind cither in  Canada
or  the  United Slates.
"���The output from public or crown
lands under lease has been taxetl by
the several governments but without
my restrictions upon the priee charged. The consequence his been naturally, ihat the users of lumber have had
'.. pay the government, taxes, and
there has been no regulation of the
exteni to which the public, the owner
of the leased limits, could be bled for
Its own  property.
B. C. Foremost.
"The government of British Columbia, wlilc.-i has been  foremost In  foi-
estry regulation, has taken a Btand on
ihls matter deserving of the wannest
(immeildation.     ll   is  readjusting  the
1 ins of royalty upon which leases are
-,anted. In making substantial Increases in tne amounts due to the government, it Is also undertaking to
regulate tin* lumber prices, The plan
covers eight periods of five years each,
the royalties being on a sliding scale.
The principle upon which the measure
������ aich has been laid before the legls
latirre by the minister of lands, is bas
ed, is that of profit-sharing by the
government In the exploitation of the
timber. It proposes lo obtain for the
provincial treasury part of the regulated value of the timber, without permitting the amount thus diverted from
the pockets of the tiiiibermen to be
taken out of the lumber consumer <���
That is the true basis of forest administration."
At the University of Washington
the new bill Introduced by Hon. Mr.
Ross was the subject of an addr'ss
to the students In the forestry class
by Overton W. Price, former associate forester of the United Statos under (Ilfford Plnchot, and now vice-
president of the National Conservation
association of the United States of
which   Mr.   Plnchot   is  president.

The lecturer said: -'Hon. W. K. Ross,

that Lie people of British Co'.UmblP
