Minus his coal and maintaining a
���sphinx like silence, an Italian is in
charge of the provincial police at
Abbotsford and it is believed he is one
of the robbers that held up the Abbotsford branch of the Itoyai Bank of
Canada last Tuesday, lt is funher believed that he is the one whose coat
was found, in the pockets of which
was a revolver and $150 of the stolen
money. The* question Ik, will the coat

the' hold-up ?
Few details could be obtained last
night about the arrest, but it Is stated
thai he has been identified as one of
the bandits. This could not be con-
flrmed, bul the police will today further Investigate the man's record and
bring him before the officials of the
bank who were present al the lime
tn the robbery, The man refuses to
give bis name or to answer any of the
questions asked him by the authorities.

a hurry. Whether this theft was com
mitted by the same men that held up
the bank, of course is not known, as
no "race of these robbers lias been
found, but the general impression is
that the bank bandits are still In the
neighborhood and that now* they have
a good quantity of supplies they will
lie enabled to remain in hiding for
���some considerable time.

Suffragettes Decorate the  Interior of
Cathedral in  Birmingham with
"Votes for Women."
Birmingham, Eng., March 15.���Worshippers in the cathedral today found
the walls and floors of ihe edifice
covered with suffragette proclamations painted ln white letters a foot
high, reading: "Votes for women.
The clergy must rise in our behalf and
stop the torturing of women In
prison."
Every foot of space except the alter
had a sign painted on it, including the
pews.
The work ls believed to have been
thnt of women who concealed themselves in the cathedral last night. It
is thought it was done for the benefit of the judges of the assizes, who
attended the services today. The assizes open here tomorrow.

VILLA TO ATTACK TORREON
SOME TIME THIS WEEK
Juarez. Mexico, March 15.��� Official
Juan l tonight was waiting In a state
cf suppressed excitement for important news from the south, for ie ls
now regarded as certain that Oeneral
Villa's attack on Torreon is but a few
days off.
Oeneral Felipe Angeles, who will
have charge of the artillery in this
battle, left this afternoon for Chihuahua. Conflicting press despatches
were received last night with regard
te the Torreon situation, but a report
thai the federals, advancing north
from their stronghold, had precipitated a battle, received no confirmation at rebel offices here. An Associated Press despatch from Chihuahua
received early this morning said that
the report of a batile was based on
the story of a fugitive American who
had it by hearsay, The desoatcb add
ed that Oeneral Villa did not believe it.
There have beta a number of out
point skirmishes.
Obstruction Above Yak Interferes with Ascent of
Salmon.
Recent Slide   as   Result of C. N. R.
Construction Work More Serious
Than First.
Ottawa, March 15. -During an Inspection of the Kraser river spawning
beds last September lt was ascertained that in consequence of construction
work on the C.N.R., along the side of
Hell's Oate Canyon, some distance
above Yale, slides of rock and gravel
had gone Into the river at two different places forming obstructions which
seriously interfered with the ascent
of salmon to the spawning beds In the
upper re*aches of the river.
At that time large numbers of salmon wero below the. obstructions seeking to make their way beyond them.
Immediately work .was undertaken by
the   department of  marine  and   fisheries in tiie way of making a channel
through the obstructions to enable the
salmon to acsend.    By means of sucii
channels  a  large  number  of  salmon
that   would   otherwise   have   perished
were enabled to get beyond the blockade and to their spawning grounds.
Another Blockade.
Quite   recently   another   slide    has
taken  place  which  started  about ,100
feet up the mountain side above the
rails and tn its descent, carried away
ten feet of the tunnel portal and 100
feet  of the railway  bed.    The  large
quantity of rocks and dirt has apparently gone right across the river forming B fall of about 15 feet,    lt will be
quite impossible for sockeye to negotiate such a fall so that if the obstrcu-
tions   are   not  removed   no   sockeyes
will     reach    the    spawning  grounds,
which will result In the wiping out of
the rur.^-ir 1918 and each succeeding
four years thereafter.
To Move Obstruction.
In view of the great value of the salmon fisheries of the Kraser river extraordinary measures to remove the
obstructions are justified although the
work can only be done during the next
few weeks owing to the annual freshets.
lion. J. D. Hazen. ministec ,<f murine and fisheries, has taken a hand
in the matter and has included a sum
thought to be sufficient for the project, in the supplementary estimates.
Chief Inspector K. H. Cunningham
has been instructed to engage the services of a competent construction company and to have work started forthwith.

New York, March 14.���Exemption of
coastwise shipping, using the small
canal, from the payment of tolls,
would mean a loss for the first ten
years of $20,000,000. declared Professor Emery Johnson, of the University
of Pennsylvania, tonight at the 26th
annual dinner of the University of
Pennsylvania men of New York. This
loss, he said, would have to be borne
by the taxpayers of the United States.
Professor Johnson was appointed

of Panama traffic tolls by President
Taft. and served as such in 1911-18.
Another speaker was    I.ir.tiley    M.

"To enable ihe canal to carry itself
commercially without being a ct ntinu*

country," Professor Johnson said, "it
will be necessary to secure revenue
of $1(.��,250,000 per annum. This total
is made up of $3,500,000 for annual
maintenance and operation; $500,000
for canal sanitation and government;
$250,000 payable as nn annuity to the
Republic of Panama; $11,250,000 to
cover the interest at 3 per cent, on
the $376,000,000 invested in the canal.
and $3,750,000 to provide a sinking
fund of 1 per cent, to return to the
treasury the cost of the canal during
the next 50 years.
"This rev>iue must be secured

the missing Dorothy Arnold, of New

Under the name of Mabel de More
she obtained from the New York authorities the facts relating to the

she was prepared to admit the identity which her disordered fancy had

Today she appeared calm, but either
the victim of aphasia or skilfully

WATCHING AND WAITING.
A watching and waiting policy may be hard on life
and property, but in the case of Mexico it seems to be getting results. Wilson has pursued that plan with a steadfast earnestness that has communicated itself to Huerta
and the dictator is beginning to loom up again as a possible president after all.
There's an old saying about all things coming to him
who waits, provided he waits long enough and in the right
place. After months of inaction on the part of the United
States and worse than inaction on the part of the so-called
Mexican government, it looks as though the rebel power
was going to sag in the middle and break from sheer
weight. Villa, the leader who started as a common brigand and who has developed into a most uncommon brigand, is reported to be no longer satisfied with his post as
military head of the constitutionalist forces. Now he
wants to be president. Carranza, who has been looked
upon as his superior, is not likely to give place without a
struggle and, to add to the beauty of the situation, the Madero faction is showing symptoms of reviving.
In the case of a Mexican revolution or a Mexican government, there's nothing that succeeds like success. Villa
has been a victor and has attracted thousands to his standard because he looked like a winner, but, if internal
trouble rends the constitutionalist party, Villa' will not
last any longer than it takes some disgruntled follower to
slip a knife under his third rib or hide a bullet in his murderous body. By hook or crook, but principally by means
of which nobody seems to know but himself, Huerta has
managed to pay his army regularly and that's what keeps
an army together in Mexico so if the rebels take to fighting
among themselves it is not at all unlikely that the man who
countenanced the assassination of Madero will yet be in at
the deaths of Carranza and Villa.
Should this happen before any other popular leader
makes his weight felt the Wilson policy will be vindicated,
but if another Villa arises it will all have to be done over
again, goodness knows how many times.

of the- old financial system are clogged by the results of use and want
and by the vested Interests and as yet

"The financial policy which lasted
so long and gave such lucrative results is now felt to be a 'I'rince Rupert's drop,' a ball of unannealed
glass which, if this one part be severed, will break up in its entirety and
must be remade. Many competent
judges hold, therefore, that the

sixty rubles ($30), and with this they
manage to contribute to the state exchequer more than 3,000 000,000 rubles ($1,500,000,000). They spend
nearly 1,000,000,000 rubles ($500,000,-

"Illicit traffic in spirits antl drinking on the streets, which distinguish
the Itussian towns, including the capital, from all foreign cities, has frightfully increased."
A recent report by the governor of
St. Petersburg province described lhe
alarming spread of drunkenness ami
hooliganism in the surrounding villages. Kven school girls in seme places
are repoited to have taken to drinking. The president of the state council In opening the discussion on the
bill dealing with this evil declared
that they were all agreed that drunkenness was undermining the strength
of the Itussian people, physically and
morally.
Some striking observations are
made in this conenction by (len. Kuro-
patkln, commander in chief in Manchuria in 1004, whose views on the
present condition of the Russian army
have just appeared in the Exchange
Gazette. Under the heading "The
Drunken Budget and War." General
Knrnpatkin refers to a remarkable
statement by Count Witte in the council cf state to the effect that at the
very beginning of the Rus?o-.lapanese
campaign the ministry of finance took
to squeezing more money out of the
spirit monopoly to meet the extra military expenses
"Such  an   indecent  and   disgusting
picture."   says   the  general,   "as   that I
presented  by the  transport  of drunk-j
e'ii  reservists to the front was never!
before  seen  an;, where else in  all his-'
tory.     When  th"  military   authorities i
asked to have the dram siiops closed !

they received a catpgorical refusal, it

London, March 16.- Dr E, J. Dillon, the famous correspondent of the
London Dally Telegraph, in the
course of a long letter from St. Petersburg ascribes the dlrecl Intervention
of the czar in the* changes In personnel now takiiiR place In the present i
government crisis to the effect upon
the sovereign of the spectacle of the
material squalor antl morel degradation caused by the df-uikennesa which
he beheld during liis journey through I
tiie* Russian provinces.
"The -emperor's Impressions em tho
spot," says Dr. Dillon, "were deepened by statistics laid before the council
Of the empire by fount Witte, who,
although himself the' creator of the
governmenl monopoly of alcohol In-
velghod against the spread of Intern*
penance, which, be alleged, is to be
at:*- bed   (j  the  abuses   which   have
been   allowed   to  creep   into   the   system "
fount W'itte's statement is that
when he quit the finance ministry Ihe
Kusnian government received from
the consumption of vodka $250,000,*
000 a year, whereas today it. receives
$500,000,000, and his contention is
that no Christian state should be dependent for its existence upon the
spread cf drunkenness among its subjects. This view is adopted by the
r;.ar in his rescript to the new flnaaci
ministee.
Aid   te*   Monar*ht&m.
"The ev.ar's publicly announced resolve nol to tolerate fhls condition of
things any longer," says Mr. Dillon,
"has produced a most favorable' im
pression throughout the country and
has considerably increased the prestige of monarchism in Russia, lie his
enjoined t.he new minister or finance
to reorganize the entire system and
enable the government not only to refuse to depend upon national Intemperance as a recognized source of revenue but io adopt efficacious means
oi' ext-lpatlng this vice and to afl'ord
the peasantry the opportunity of displaying the high queilitics Of mind
and 'body that characterize them."
Dr. Dillon points out how arduous in

Great Britain Defeats
Germany's Railway Plan
London,    March    16.���The    Bagdad 1 to furnish  Europe a new and almost
railway is not to extend to the Persian I inexhaustible
null'.
^^^^^^     granary^^^^^^^^^^
Its political significance was still
greater. It was to furnish Germany
entrance to the middle east and a
means of checkmating the increasing
This famous German project, which
the kaiser himself advocated and en- 	
couraged and In which the whole (ler-j P��wf,r of Kussia and Great Britain in
; that part of the world.    There were ;
to be two controlling ports In Asiatic I
Turkey, one  at  liaidar  Pasha, opposite Constantinople, the other at Alex-
andrette on  the  Mediterranean coast
of Asia Minor.
Austria-Hungary was 'o build the
Novl Bazar railway, gain control of
Salonica and then by a short sea voyage across from Salonica to Alexan-
drette, Vienna and Budapest would
have a direct route to the Persian
gulf. From Berlin there would be another equally direct route to the same
point by way of Constantinople���even
a bridge across the Golden Horn was
one of the projectors' dreams���and
then acroBS the Bosphofus through
Anatolia and down the Kuphrates valley. One of the dreams of the mill-!
tary enthusiasts was to rush troops
from the capitals of the two great nations of the Triple Alliance in tier-1
man cars over this road to the east,
thus avoiding the passage of the Suez
canal,
The entire distance of the line from
the Bospborui to the  Persian gulf III
1.750 miles.    But of this,  part is  the:
already constructed  Anatolln section,
and  is to be built in a  southeasterly
direction, passing through Aleppo, the
metropolis   of   Syria;   Mosul,   on   the]
site of ancient Ninevab, and Bagdad,
the city of  caliphs, a distance of* 1,250
miles.
Political Outlook Changed.
Receni events in Europe have lessened  apparently  the  political  signifi-!
cance of the project.   Germany is not
so closely allied with the Ottoman empire as in  Abdul  llamid's time. Ans-!
tria is not so ambitious  to build  the |
Nov!   Bazar   railway   now    that    the
Greeks are  al   Salonica.     To  neither |
of these great  nations does the pass- |
age  Of the  Balkans look  as easy asi
before the dismemberment of Turkey]
In Europe,   it is the commercial pos-;
sibilities of the  roael  that now offer j
the strongest appeal.
The building of the road is reported '
tei be progn esing favorably and there!
appears to be gocd foundation for the
bt pe thai a line will be In operation
by 1917.   The BOO miles of road from
Konla to Bagdad-are being constructed by a German company, the general
manager of which is Meissner Pasha,;
���Aho has a record Of twenty years of!
railroad building in the Ottoman em*
plre,   Work has been held up at tbe I
Taurus mountains owing to the heavy
bridge building and tunnelling necessary.   Along the re*-t of the line there
are   no  greal   engineering   problems,
cultivation has been neglected owing
to lack of a market. Petroleum and
bituminous coal are .said to be p'enti-
ful in many Motion* through which

Near Masul and iuar the Persian

msn people were deeply interested, is
to stop at Basrah, defeated of its desired eastern terminus by sixty miles.
ThiB, in substance, Ib the chief point
in the understanding that has been
reached by the British foreign oifice
and the Turkish government, represented by Hakhi Pasha, who has been
for several months In Ix)tidon completing the terms of the Anglo-Turkish agreement.
This eastern terminus has been
wavering in the Kuphrates and Tigris
valleys eevr since the original survey
was made. It was set down once In
the mud at the 'mouth of the Tigris.
Then It was moved to likely places to
the south and finally fixed, according
to plans of the projectors, at Koweit.
Hut Oreat Britain objected to all of
these, she did not wish Germany to
have control of a port so near India
Again, English capital was invested
In tin' steamship line which operate!
on thn Tigris, antl railroatl competition might seriously affect it. So the
line below Bagdad was held up for
years.
By the terms Of the present agreement the railroatl is to stop at Basrah,
in the valley of the Tigris, anil navigation of that river Is not to be impair-
e*el. The road from Bagdad to the terminus is to be built jointly by Turkey,
Oreat Britain, Germany, Russia and
Franco. Great Britain Is to have two
seats on the directorate as a guarantee against any differential rates, and
she is to have the right to build a *
railroad through south Persia.
In Historic Scenes.
No railroad enterprise has ever possessed such fascination as the Bagdad
line <>r so completely held the attention of the world. It was to open up
to modern civilization the gre*:it Eu-
phartes valley, the scene of Biblical
history and ancient civilization; it was
to   pass   by   the   sites  of  olel   Ninevab
and Babylon and through the land of
the earliest conquests of Mohammedanism. It was to restore this hove
desolate and neglected region to the
wonderful fertility it. once enjoyed and
port trade of the interior has been of I
small  importance  on  account of  the j
difficulty of access to it, and the high |
price  that   must   bo  asked   for  even
the simplest article on account of the |
cost of carriage from either Medlter- j
ranean or Black Sea ports a8 br,lllant hock     as the ToroIUOB _

20   miies   from   this  city,   two  ladies
well known in the Twin Cities, are suffering severaly from the shock. They
left their heme about 5:30 in the afternoon to visit a neighbor's house about

and as they did not return a search
party was formed with the result that
they   were   found   shortly   before   11
o'clock perched high in the enfolding
branches ot a big pine tree.
Tne'r story was that ln some manner they had lost their way and had
become frightened by the owls hooting and the howls cf the wolves and
the small, mysterious voices of the
woods. They climbed into the branches
of a big tree and when found were

Tuberculosis and Its Relation to Public Health."
Ilis talk  was   brilliant with  humor.
and his audience thoroughly cnjoyce]
every word he spoke.
Koch's Theory.
The doctor said he spoke of the
tubercular bacterium found In cattle.
ile told of the declaration of Robert
Koch in 1882 thai lhe* tubercular
germs in cattle and in humans are of
different types, not different bacteria,
bul different types of the same* germ
closely allied. Koch said human
tuberculosis could not be transmitted
to cattle.
Tuberculosis, lie said, is not inherited. The only Inheritance is a predisposition to have the disease.
Dr. Ravenel said that many experiments have proved thai the tubi rcu-
le sis of the human cem be transmitted
to cattle by the Injection under the
skin of a calf or cow of sputum from
a tubercular person.
Bovine tuberculosis is contracted by
humans only through the digestive
tract, he wenl on to say. Children,
therefore, are very liable to contract
tbe disease by drinking milk containing ihe* germs. The doctor explained
thoroughly how tbe food digested In
the Intestine and containing germs is
carried finally to the lungs, where the
majority of the cases of tuberculosis
In humans are found.
No one denies, said the speaker.
that the tubercle germ can be taken
Into tin body by way of the* digestive
tract. It lakes about four hours for
a germ to git from the Intestine to
the  lungs of a  human.
Humans are liable io tuberculosis
from eating tubercular meat or drinking tubercular meat.
English Commissions.
Commissions In England   and   Qer
many have found a percentage ranging from    2G to    50 cases    of human
tubl rculosls tO be* caused    b*.     bovine
germs. Children brought up on
mothers' milk an* not as liable to
bovine' tuberculosis as ihtise f.el on
milk from cows. Elght-flve per cent,
nf children tested In New York hospitals uhere- cows' milk was used, and
who died, had bovine* tuberculosis,
The common cases of bump-back
and hip joint disease have* given rise
ti) some*  Interesting    experiments In
Edinburgh, where many children so
afflicted   have   been   examined,   ,\
high percentage are cripples because
of the bovine germ, and only a s::ial!
pi re .-mage- hail the human germ.
Children under five years are more
BUBO plible to the bovine germ than
persons over thut age, and when the
age of IH has been reached there is
little chance of getting the cattle
germ. This would tend to show that
milk   is  responsible  fur bovine  tuber
culosls in humans,
In most of the large ci'ies the quan.
lily of milk containing the bovlna
germ is very large, sometimes being
as high as 50 per cent.
"What are we going to do about It?"
ask) d the doctor. "The bi'st way is
to get rid cf the tuberculosis cows.
and Ihe* other is pasteurization of mill;
from those cows, which is lie* si
gooel a way,"
Only Satisfactory Test.
The tuberculin te*st is tin* only Way
to till whin a cow* has tunerculi sis,
and when the cows react, tin problem
is "how to get riel of her." There ���
number of different ways of doing
this.    One is by  the- state* glvln;
farme*r a percentage of the a I
value of the cow, and another I :������
have the fanner give* the animal to
Uu* state*, which kills the cow. llBcs
all the' good parts, and recompen ���
tin* tanner with the* proceeds, n nus
iin* expense.
'I he' third method, the Bang
depends on tin- lack of Inheritance of
the disease for    its i ss,   ('ai*.. s
are raised from -the consumptive
mothers, and are always found t'i bfl
perfect!) free from tubi rculosls, and
are kept from their mothers from
birth, so that the fanner does not
lose iiis calves. This is a practicable
working plan, and Is advised bj lir.

Trying   to   Arrange  Games   With  the

Not satisfied with capturing the Mc'

season, the Kraser Mills hockey club
ll now bent on taking a chance with!
tin- Regina Victorias In an Allan cup'
se-rles, a wire beung forwarded to the!
new champions    011    Saturday  11ig.it,
while this was followed up yesterday
hy a wire to Claude  Robinson, the
Winnipeg member of tin* Allan cup I
tioard of trustees,    The  wire to the 1
Kegina club, Kigne*el by .1.  I.. Tennent.
manager of the fraser Mills club, was:
as follows:
"As   holders  of  lhe'  Coast  amaleeur
hockey   championship   we   herewith
challenge for the- Allan cup and would :
request that you wire us immediately (
regarding suitable dates."
Should this challenge tit* accepted
by tht* trustee's, it will be the first
time in history that a coast team has
been assigned eiate-s fur tin* trophy
emblematic of the world's amateur
hockey championship, if the challenge
is accepted the Circle F boys will
have to pack their kil Immediately as
the question of solid ice- on the' prairies at ihis time of ihe year is problematical.
The* games would be played under
tiie eastern rules, that of two .10 minute halves with no offside rule such
as has been in force in the local league
this  winter.
The officials of last Friday's game at
Vancouver came ln for much criticism,
especially Ernie Johnson, for continually pulling up the play on account
of offsides. To the non-partizan fan,
however, the work of both Johnson
and Si Orlffis was of the highest order and absolutely no favoritism was
shown to either team.
Hot], the Savage antl Coj Cups will
be brought over this wefek and these i
together with the handsome McRae
trophy will be placed on exhibition In j
ile-orge' Speck's show Window for a
few elays to Rive local hockey fans a

Quebec Defeats Wanderers 16-8 at New
York���Vancouver vs. Wanderers
on Tuesday.
New York, March 15. A carnival of
rough, bruising skating and a shower
01 goals, marked the opening game
last night of the series at the St. Nicholas rink between the Canadian professional teams, the Quebec team 1 mining over the Wanderers of Montreal
rough-Shod and winnin? by the overwhelming score of 16-8.
The players completely forgot hockey in the final period and started a
campaign of wholesale tripping an"!
slashing. Players were sprawled out
on the Ice half the time. The officials
lost all control of the men and they
played the game as they pleased.
Even In the midst of the turmoil,
however, Hall of Quebec gave an exhibition of fast skating and wonderful goal shooting.
The officials were: Referee V. Russell, Montreal; judge of play, H. Lehman, New  Westminster, B.C.

12th March, 1904. (-3082)
New   York,  March  15. -Hon.  W.  L.
Mackenzie    King,    former    Canadian
| minister of labor,  addressed  the  Republican club of New York last week.
He said in part:
"Happily   in   ihe    affairs   of   men,
there  are  movements  which  through
��� their  import  to  humanity  transcend
I the differences of party, and the de-
' taching einfluenes of nationality. Such
; a movement is tbe proposal to celebrate between    the    English-speaking
! peoples of the worm a century of un-
! broken  peace.    To  .hose who  appre-
t elate its spirit aright, the camp of a
' political enemy becomes for such purpose the sanctuary of hfs adversary,
antl foreign territory, common ground.
��� It 'is an  appreciation of this  subject
! in   lhe  Invitation  which, as  members
of the Republican club of New York,
1 you  have  so kindly extended  to one
: who is in no way Identified with your
politics or country;   a catholicity���of
purpose antl opportunity so wide that
; it permits the humblest to share with
the  most distinguished in furthering
i the highest end of our   human exist*
! ence���the promotion of peace on earth
and good will towards men.
The   Example   of   Pasteur.
"Among  the greatest men  of mod-
I ern times, as he was the    most illus-
: trious.  perhaps,  among the  members
; of his profession in his day. was the
French  scientist,   Pasteur.
"Here are  Pasteur's words:
" 'Two contrary  laws seem   to    be
wrestling   with   each  other  nowaday;
the one, a law of blood and of death,
j ever imagining Sew means of destruc-
S tion   and   forcing  nations   to   be  constantly ready for the battlefield;   the*
other,  a  law  of  peace,    work,    and
health, ever evolving new  means of
delivering man    from    the    scourges
which beset him.
Deserves Noble Efforts.
"The movement to celebrate 100
years of peace may se em to many a
matter of small concern, By si me it
win be decried, lor there an- 'two contrary lawn wrestling with each other
nowadays,' and those who are seeking
tei further 'new means of destruction'
will not be eager tn promote means.
however slight, of 'delivering man
from ii*" scourges whicli beset him.'
Ye*; it is pri cisely because this movement has in it the possibility of dis-
closing such a means, because it is In
laccord'with thai law ft'hich wrestles
against blood ami death, ami which
works for peace* and health, and deliverance, that it is deserving of the
highest efforts of the noblest minds,
and should know no limitation of
party,   race,  creed   or   nationality.
"We on tliis continent have worked
out an achievement, unparalleled hitherto in the history of the world. We
hold in common an international frontier approaching 4,000 miles in length,
along the whole of which, on land or
lake or river, scarcely an Instrument
of war is stationed or a sentry placed
on guard.
"During the years 1812 to 1S14 this
; frontier was a reflection upon civiliz-
; ation  itself -the scene of enmity and
'hate between men who. though of the
: same origin and blood, yet particlpat-
; eel in one of the great mortal conflicts
of the world.    Today, the same fron-
rie r is the crowning glory of this continent, for, with Its absence of the paraphernalia of  war, ami   the  interlude
of a  century of peace,  it  marks  the
, triumph of  Reason over Force  In tht*
adjustment  of differences  in  interna-
ttonal affairs.
"This   cele*br.*ition   of   100   years  of
peace affords au opporiunity for a con-
, tinent to place itself on record before
the  world, and  if the peoples,  whose
privilege, it is to share, in this mighty
project will but rise to the high level
of this sublime occasion, the celebration will be, not a series of perfunctory addresses on the horrors of war
' and the glories of peace*,  but a proclamation   e>f   achievement    In   human
prognss and  international  e-eieiti  will
, which will fire the Imagination of the
entire globe"
ricane then broke* and a terrific sea
was stirred up. The wind and sta
were both head on and retarded the
Tamba to ��� certain extent, bul she vas
kept plugging along at full speed
Seve ral days later the Minnesota .vas
picked up by wireless, anil was but
40 miles ahead. The terrific weather
had interfered with her pngresa materially, and the Tainba. making much
better weather of it, picked up ou her.
The elay before reaching Yokohama
Captain Teraiiaka was pacing tho
bridge and he noticed the Smoke of
the Minnesota astern. The Japanese
were1 anxious to beat the big ship into
port, antl full head of steam wa?
crowded. The Tamba made quarantine just 40 minutes prior to the rr-
rival of the Minnesota.
On the inward trip this time the
two ships left Yokohama together, and
the Minnesota succeeded In beating
the' Tamba to the Sound by nearly a
day.
GAVE HIS LIFE TO SAVE
HOR8E FROM DROWNING
Ottawa, March 15���An attack of
pneumonia, contracted during his ef
forts to save his horse when It broke
Ci rough the ice on the lake, mused
the death of Joseph Bertrand, of Kort
Con lon ge, yesterday.
When Mr. llertrand was driving
across the lake with a heavy load last
week the ice suddenly broke. Mr.
Bertrand succeeded in jumping to firm
ice. but on seeing his horse floundering helplessly in the cold water re-
turni'd to the rescue.
After working almost an hour, and
falling in the icy water several times
himself, he succeeded in rescuing the
horse. The man was then forced to
walk half a mile in his wet clothes
before reaching a house, with the result that he contracted pneumonia,
and died In the hospital this morning.
Mrs. llertrand was in the hospital
herself when her hunband was brought
In, awaiting an operation. She was
able to see him for a short time before
hi:i   death.

Oarllck, of the Oreat Northern line,
I cleared from the Sound, and the strug-

! utes. It was a most peculiar tt.-st. of
j speetl. antl a terrific storm was the de-
i eiding factor, through the fact that
the Tamba was able' to make better
; weither of it than the great 600-foot
I ship.
Captain    Teranaka,   master   of   the
Nippon steamship, upon arriving he>re
I from the Orient, told of the rate, which
I has no equal In the annals ol the l'a-
' rifir's history.   The Tamba Maru left
Seattle two hours ahead of ibe Minnesota, but she was forced  to call In
i at. Victoria and owipg to the heavy sea
on  in the strait  she had to go lo Ks-

five hours.   The Minnesota proceeded
; dirt-el to sea.
Heavy Storms Interfere.
The first morning at sea the ramha

Rank imposes obligations���
or���as the French put it���"Noblesse Oblige."
It ts a very natural and right principle that those who
by their position in life command the respect of others
should deserve it and be worthy of maintaining their
position.    "Much is expected of those in high station."
But this principle is not confined to persons of noble birth
���it has a hundred applications. It applies, for example,
to those manufacturers of
reputation and prestige who
make goods of high quality
and who advertise them con*
stantly in the newspapers of
the land.
By their advertising they have
attained an eminence where
the very best in quality and
good service is expected  of
them. They have set a standard and their very business
life depends on the constant
maintenance of it.
So that when you buy advertised articles you rest assured
that you are getting the best
value that money can buy.
Well may you place your faith
in advertised goods. Well
may you give them preference over articles which you
can only hope may prove
satisfactory.
For the principle of "Noblesse Oblige" is
your guarantee of excellence in Advertised Goods.

If -ou are doing a provincial or national business it would be well
for you to have the counsel and assistance ol a good advertising

strength was shown in today's half

MANY   MILLIONS,  YET
FEW CLAIMANTS WIN
London, March 15���One million two
hundred and fifty thousand pounds
sterling is the total sum held by the
court of chancery at the present moment.
The common idea, however, that a
fortune may be obtained by a successful suit in chancery is mythical, tor
the million and a quarter is made up
of no less than 3838 separate sums,
of which the largest individual sum
is ��7l'00, and of these many have*
been lodged in court since the ISth
century,
The official paymaster's office last
week pointed out that the court of
chancery annually received about 500
inquiries, a great majority from the
United States, but very few claimants
succeeded. PAGE  EIGHT

EDISON  THEATRE   SECURES
SPLENDID NEW FILM
Up-todate  Musical  Comedy  Will    Be
Staged at Opera  House Thursday  Night.
The new "Mutt and Jel'f' is called
"In Panama." ln it. Hud Fisher's two
comic characters le'iid their valuable
aid in the formal opening of the big
canal. This play represents a new-
era of musical comedy production, inasmuch as it embodies all of the elements of good entertainment, including farce comedy, extravaganza and
drama, all shaped into a musical
comedy of the approved sort. Gus
Hill bas given the new book a magnificent production from every' point
of view. Tho musical score is entirely new, from the fertile brain of l^eo
Edwards, who has a number of big
successes already to his credit. Owen
Davis and Bud Fisher wrote the
fitory and. of course, the side-splitting
antics of his brain people are of his
own brand.
The scenic production excels anything ever offered In a play of this
character, spectacular mechanical effects are shown which produce genuine thrills. The music is fully up to
the standard of grand opera, costuming and dance numbers savor of the
best Broadway ever knew, a chorus
of girls who are really pretty and who
know how to sing, dance and look be*
-witching give zest to the entertainment.
"Mut,t and Jeff has proven to be the
most remarkable success of a decade
and, contrary lo predictions, its second season was even more prosperous
than its first, and the present year bids
fair to excel either of the other two.
Even though there is a well defined
anil interesting plot, il is at limes
hardly evident, so great is the laugh-

A thrilling story of romance and intrigue in connection with the invtn-
tion of a new machine* gun by a youne
man employed at an armament works,
is tolel in a lilm entitled "Iron and
Steel" to be presented at the Edison
theatre today.
The slory from whicli the play was
dramatized runs as follows:
Herr Ludwig Kronitz is a king In
liis own works and rules with a controlling hand.    He is  known  as the
"Man of Iron."    He has made a tor-
tune out of the manufacture of guns,
and  is  hard  and   unscrupulous.    His
character is Bhown  by various little
incidents   around    the   factory.   His
daughter, Hilda, returning from a trip
to  America.  meetB John  Smardon, a
well-to-do young American, partner in
some steel works.    They fall iu love,
but Hilda does   not   hold   out much
hope, as she knows her    father    has
other ideas.   Carl Helner, a workman
at Kronitz's place, who has an invalid
wife, has invented    a  new    machine
gun.    Heiner tolls his plans to Bopp,
a tool of Kronitz.    Kronitz sends for
Carl and offers to buy the invention
j at a small   price    Carl    refuses   and
I Kronitz then gives him the choice of
! selling or being discharged.    He    re-
| fuses.    He cannot  get  work  and  he
i and   his   wife   are   in   great  distress,
illalf crazy with desperation, he goes
j to  the  works at   night,  iwets   Bopp,
and, in a frenzy cf rage, attempts to
j hurl him into one of the furnaces, but
is frustrated  by other workmen.  He
is sentenced to prison,
i     When Carl ia released, he finds his
| wife dying.    He casts the dust, of the
: place from him and    wanders    forth,
! swearing  vengeance.    Kronitz having
i received  an  offer  for  Ills  daughter s
: hand from a duke, rejects John's suit,
* but Hilda, while she will not marry
John without    her   father's   consent
i says she will be true to hin\ John
'picks up Carl, fainting by thp road-
| side, hears  his  story, and  t<*kes him
wiih him (o America, to hi<; works.
; There, he patents Carl's i-ivention.
��� Kronitz, meanwhile, with tli- help ot
Bopp, and some experts, hm recon-
' structed the gun, and comen to New
* York to Interest American r:apilal in
it and make* a fortune, but '.ne table:*
are turned when he finds t'*.e gun already patented, and is brcught face*
to luce With Carl, and vann lished. He
gives up the fight, admits Carl's rights
to the gun, and to save himself, giveis
his consent to Hilda's marriage with
John Smardon.   Carl, for   he sake of
