Conflicting  Reports.
Juarez, March 24.���Roseate rumors
and "official" reports of the onward
sweep of General Francisco Villa and
his victorious rebels kept this city ln
a state of gratified excitement today,
but tbe optimism was dashed somewhat by the receipt of the Associated
Press elispatch from Chihuahua quot
Ing an official dispatch to the effect
that fighting continues at Gomez Palacio.
It was announced officially in the
course of the afternoon that Gomez
Palacio. three miles from Torreon, was
taken lant night at 9 o'clock and that
General Villa had ordered' supplies
sent direct to that city.
Next came word that General Benavides had captured two federal cuar-
tels in Torreon itself. This information was conveyed in a private telegram from Col. Trevino, one of Benavides' staff officers, to his brother in
Juarez. At. this there was further
joy, but It was nothing to the excitement occasioned when Oeneral Manuel Chao. military governor of state
of Chihuahua, and now in this city to
greet General Carranza, received a
private wire that general Velasco, the
federal commander al Horreon, had
General Chao accepted the report
with reserve, however, and telegraphed to Oeneral Villa, asking for
confirmation or denial. After two
hours lu- had received no reply.
The dispatch from the* Associated
Press staff correspondent at Chihuahua had something of a dampening ef-
foct on the spirits of the rebels, and
It gave rise to all manner of conjectures It was the first direct news
telegram of the day. but it was argued
that the official report quoted in it
did not necessarily disprove previous
reports of fighting in Torreon or even
Villa did actually have Gomez Palacio
in his possession last night.
The report might mean, it was conjectured that the federals as a part of
the general battle might have returned to Gomez Palacio and renewed
the' fighting, while other forces were
engaged in Torreon, three miles away.
is whether a democratic government
is to be brow-beaten and dictated to
by the drawing rooniB of London and
by that section of officers of the British army who are aristocrats and violent Tory partisans.
"The cause of Irish freedom in this
fight has become the cause of popular
freedom and ordered liberty throughout the world. It is Impossible to
doubt what the outcome of such a
fight will be.
"The second reading of the home
rule bill will be taken Monday and
the bill will be proceeded with until it
finds its place on the statute books."

continues to be a seething caldron
over what the Liberals now denounce
as the "mutiny of the army aristocrats" against the aemocratic government.
The fact has been established from
all  obtainable  evidence  that General
Hubert Gough and the other officers
of the Third cavalry brigade demanded   and  obtained   written  assurances
which had been drafted by a lawyer,
that   they   would   not  be  ordered  to
fight Sir Edward Carson's volunteers
and  these  assurances were  obtained
largely   through   the   personal   intervention of the king.
Before they left London they sent
messages to their brother officers ln
Ireland that tbey had found support
"from the highest quarters." On

they were welcomed by a guard of

Spokane. .March 24.���Loss of a
$2',iU0 performing polar bear, one of
the group seen at the Pantages theatre
here a short time ago, which had con-
its streets and lanes. The spring always finds little piles
of rain soaked refuse waiting for the sun of the warmer
days and the sooner they are put out of the way the better. Everybody knows* this, but, unfortunately, unless
there is some general action taken, everybody does not
clean up. Right here the clean-up day helps. A date is
fixed for the work of the shovel and rake brigade, all
hands get fair warning and, if the thing is handled properly, the city gets a cleaning between two suns that
makes it renew its youth like the eagle.
Hy all means, let's clean up, the sooner and cleaner,
the better.
Just at present the Sapperton sewer seems to be more

That was a good suggestion the Progressive association passed on to the city council that we hold a clean-up
day and get rid of the accumulated refuse of winter. The
council endorsed the plan and referred it to the health
committee for a report, from which quarter it is hoped
the idea will get an early and enthusiastic send-off. A
good cleaning up, especially in the spring, never did anybody any harm. A town needs this sort of treatment every
bit as much as an individual. During the winter months

shot, was averted, it is said, through
the timely application of Christian
Science treatment. The bear still
lives, his jaw cured, his appetite revived and hair starting to grow on
the new flesh where thi re was a hole
a fortnight ago.
The story was first told by Captain
Jack Schewyer, the trainer, after he
got to Seattle and was yesterday confirmed by Mrs. Bowers, the practitioner, through whose ministrations the
cure was effected and by other local
people. Capt. Jack was completely dis-
couraged with the case, as he had
previously lost four bears from a similar disease and he expected to shoot
the animal upon arrival here. He said:
Cured in Three Days.
"A Spokane man suggested that the
bear be given Christian Science treatment. He told me it had often been
tried successfully on animals. Acting
on his advice, I went to see a woman
Christian Science healer, I told her
about the cancer and she agreed tc
treat the bear. In three days time the
animal was completely cured. Now.
as you may see* for yourself, only a
scar is left and new hair will soon
hid this. Bvery performer on tin
Pantages bill will testify to every
fact that I have told you. I will prove
this story to anyone no matter how
skeptical he may be."
"Ves, it is true," said .Mrs. Bowers
j when asked about it. " Captain Jacl
| came to me and told me about the
case. He bad never beard of Christian Science and hael no faith that the
cure cculd be wrought. That was the
greatest difficulty. His disbelief had
first to be overcome. 1 gave the beat
treatment that night without seeing It
and on Wednesday again met Capt.
Jack at the Spokane hotel and had a
long talk with him about the case.
This talk was part of the treatment.
It is necessary to work through tin*
owner, as well as upon lhe* animal.
Capt. Jack'told nu* on Wedm ��day that
the hear was better. On Thursday I
talked with him a third time ami he
told me the cure was complete. It was
not until Saturday that I got to see
the bears and then I must confess 1
was surprised���the bear was a huge
white one and I had hail in mind all
the time that it was a black bear. I
put my hand upon the animal and ea'.i
that its cancer was gone.
Also   Cures   Disposition.
"When Capt. Jack first came to me
he said one difficulty they had with
the animal was due to its cross lis
position ami that it had killed i ni ol
its keepers several years ago. I told
him that if it was cured by Christian
Science its disposition would be completely changed and it was. At the
time I saw it on Saturday night it . as

Cotton, Inspector-General of tbe Can-
a.iiaii Militia, wl.ose appointment has
been extended to March next, when
he will retire, is widely known In
Canada. He is one of tbe oldest officers of Ihe permanent force, probably tbe very oldest in point ot
swearing in. Wben, owing to tbe
withdrawal of tbe permanent troops,
tbe duty was forced upon the Canadian Government of organizing a couple of artillery corps to garrison the
fortifications at Quebec and Kingston,
Col. Cotton was a captain in tbe old
Ottawa Garrison Artillery and applied for and was given a commission
in the new corps then being raised at
Kingston, which subsequently became
"A" battery, and eventually was tbe
colonel of the present Royal Canadian Horse / rtillery.
In his younger days Gen. Cotton
was recognized as one of the best rilie
shots in Canada and twice went to
Wimbledon as a member of the Canadian team. He bas never since failed to take an active Interest in rifle
shooting and artillery practice. He
entered upon his first staff duties in
18S2, when he was appointed to the
command of tbe artillery school connected with A Battery and was appointed assistan* inspector of artillery. He retained those dual appointments until appointed district officer
commanding the old third military
district with headquarters at Kingston. Later he became Inspector ol
Artillery, commanded military district No. 4, Ottawa, and was Assist-
ant-Adjutant-General for Artillery at
headquarters. He has also been ijuar-
termaster-General, Master-General of
the Ordinance, Officer Commanding
Western Ontario Division with bead-
quarters at Toronto. He commanded
the first infa ltry division at the Quebec tercenterary review.
Apart from a few months' service
during the Fenian raids, Gen. Cotton
lias not had a chance in a -live serviie.
At the time of the' Northwest Rebellion of 1.886 he was commandant of
the Citadel at Quehe*e* and though all
of tbe otbir regulars In his garrison
were sent to the i.ont he was ordered
to remain at Quebec. At the time of
the South African war be was again
unable to leave for Africa, his services being needed at Ottawa in connection with the equipment, and despatch of the various contingents. He
was represented on the field, however,
by bis son, who enlisted into the first
Canadian contingent from the Victoria Rifles of Montr al, and gave hts
life for the Empire at Paardeoerg.
,\ man of calm, unruffled disposition,
never over exacting, and always anxious to give full credit to his subordinates, Qen. Cotton is much beloved in the militia, and every offlrer and
man who has served under him will
regret his retireme it, Mrs. Cotton,
who has always been a prime social
favorite, was tbe daughter of the late
John Hinder of Montreal. ��� Famllj

encourages national development and

the Canadian people must thank their

Whatever may be tiie fluctuations of j
the   stock   market,   says  the  Toronto
Mail  and  Empire,  it Is  unlikely  that

or  central   portions of that  republic. !
Hio Janeiro  is  far from the  seat of I
Hie disturbance, and is not. apt to be
much more affected by it than if the j
revolt hail broken out in another country.    There ia very reason to believe
that  Brazil  has  passed  the epoch  of
.Spanish-American    revolutions.      The
existing political and social order    is!
so firmly established, the financial In-1
lerests so great, and the other forces
tbat make for peace are so powerful, |
that any repetition of the Mexican sit-j
nation   In   Mexico  or  t'.ie  revolutions I
that are so common in Central American countries is out of the question.
The situation is difficult, and  is    aggravated  by  the  religious    complications thai  has   to  be dealt with,   but!
it  is likely to be handled well by the
federal government, and nothing much
worse outside of the affected area is !
likely in happen  than the embarrassment of the government, and possibly ;
the election of a new president.
Most   Backward   Part.
The disturbance  Is confined  to the
Stat - of Ceara, in the north of Brazil, j
and though there is some excitement;
in adjoining states, it is an anxiety to i
get  the  thing  settled   rather  than  a |
desire tn have the revolt spread. Ceara |
Is  a  state*  that  does  not  offer  great
Inducements  to   the  foreign   investor .
and exploiter.   Although it is the most
backward portion of Brazil, it is not
a  profitable  field  for commercial de- j
velopment.   The soil is poor and thin, ���
and on tliis account the state is sub- j
je-e���; to long, dry spells that last from
July   to   December,     and     sometimes I
longer.    In 1877-1878 the drought lasted so long that half a million  people
an*  supposed   to  have  died    through
starvation and the subsequent pest!-;
lencc.    Of the population only a very \
small   part  is  of   European     descent.
Most of tbe people are of Indian and :
negro blood.    This population,  which j
is estimated to number about 900,000. j
has developed apart from the rest ot
Brazil,   having   its   own   customs,   its
own  folk-lore,    and    traditions,    and
. above all  its own superstitions.
Miracle  Announced.
The whole  population  is deeply religious, the  isolated character of the
j state, and lis frequent droughts, with
great   suffering   and   distress,     being
probably  responsible for this characteristic.    Some twenty years  ago the
1 little town of    Joazeiro    de    Cairiry,
: which is situated about 200 miles from
Fortaleza, the capital of the state, was
thrown into tremendous excitement by
the announcement that a miracle had
been  performed  by the parish  priest.
Padre Cicero Romao,   The witness of
the miracle was Maria Aranjo. a hysterical peasant woman, who was half-
��� witted.   This woman testified that upon a number of occasions when  par-
! taking of communion  in the church
sbe had seen traces of blood upon the
consecrated water.   This miracle she
ascribed  to  the   wonderful  powers of
the padre. News of the miracle spread
fast,    Credulous  peasants   flocked   to
the town from far and ne*ar. and after
Usti ning i<i tbe woman srere convinced |

Excommunicated   by  the   Pope.
When the bishop of the state heard
these  strange  reports  he  ordered  an I
Investigation    His commissioners ad-I
rised blm that the* whole thing was a
tl Uld, and the* bishop commanded tin*
padre to  leave the town  before the j
se uieleil increased.   This Romanao re-
fused to do, and his parishioners clung
to him.    He was summoned to Koine,
and there was told by I'ope Leo that
lie must obey bis bishop on threat of
excommunication,   Kven    this   com-.
mand was ignored, and Komao return-'
eel tei the little lown.    Ever since he 1
lias   been   holding   his    unauthorized   ,
services there, and performing his al-j'
hged  miracles.   The town has grown!
to  be  one  of  20,000  oppulation.  and j
besides being a notable fanatical ven- \
tre has  become the headquarters of
outcasts and outlaws of every descrlp-
th n.    It has grown to be so large and
formidable that It has defied the state
authorities to govern it.
Big  Family Overthrown.
Until two or three years ago the
most powerful family in the state ofl
Ceara has been that of Nogiera Ac-
cloly. a veritable oligarchy, that chose
the governor aud all other important j
officers, and controlled Ceara as the
Democratic boss controls the East
S de of New York. So powerful was
this family that the present federal
executive. Marshal Hemes 'de Fon-
lecs thought it desirable that it
should be curbed, and two years ago
overturned the Ceara government
and appointed friends of his own.
Though without office, the Accioly
family was by no means shorn of
power, lt entered into an alliance
with Romao and his fanatical followers, rebelled against the governor of
the state, went through the formality
of electing one of their own, and defied the federal government to Interfere. The other enemies and opponents of Konseca have seized the opportunity of making trouble for him

He followed the carpenter trade until
he was 112 years old, when he studied
dentistry in Cincinnati. He took up
the study of medicine when 62 years
old and practiced until a few years
lie came to Indianapolis.for the first
time in 1852 by stage coach from
Te.re Haute over the old national
road. At that time the two things
that   most   impressed   him   were   the

Refused  Luxuries.
In the last 5n years of his life Dr.
Richardson refrained from eating even
the ordinary table luxuries.

Dr.  Richardson's death  was due to
acute  kidney  disease.    He   had  been
ill  for about six  weeks at the  home
of  his   son,   H.   B.   Richardson,   with
whom he had lived for several  years.
The veteran physician's life history
was an   interesting one.    He  became
acquainted  with  Abraham  Lincoln at
Charleston, 111., when the emancipator
was   beginning   the   practice   of   law.
j He   heard   the   greatest   debates   be-
I ween   Lincoln  and  Douglass  in   1858.
Dr.  Richardson  was    a    dentist in

The physician often told of experiences with runaway slaves and he recalled the opposition to the first free
schools. Citizens considered them unnecessary.

It was no fault of his theories that

after having partaken of a supper of

before school was to have commenced.
There  has  been  a   factional  fight   in

Any offers or suggestions put up

by the boys. The chances of captur
Ing the Mann cup and bringing It to
this city never appeared brighter and
if the players who turned out with
the Westminster amateur team last
summer will only stick together,
there appears to be nothing to stop.,
the capture of a trophy emblematic''
of Uie world's amateur lacrosse
title. Leo Gregory, Alden Cooper
and T. Stcrme are spoken of as being
ripe for professional company, but if
these boys have any regard for their
leader in amateur lacrosse and the
fact that their activities in other
sports will be cut off completely once
they make the, jump, they will remain
lighting shoulder to shoulder for the
Mann cup. In tlnj present stale of
affairs the returns from professional
lacrosse will nut provide very many
installments of real estate, and what
prospects there are lies in the fact
of improving the status of the game
rather them large monetary gains.

"S . Elmo,
How many hospital patients, suffering the frightful itch, the raw scorching pain of skin disease, have been
BooOhed to sleep by a soothing fluid
washed in by tin* nurse's hands?
That fluid i.s tin' famous D. D. D.
prescription  for    eczema,
one of our promising Catholic institutions (name of nurse and institute
en application), writes regarding a
patient. "The disease* had eaten her
eyebrows away. Her nose, and lips
had become disfigured. Since* the use
ol' 1). 1), D. her eyebrows are growing,
her nose and face have asunied their
natural  expression."
How many eczema sufferers are
paying their doctors for regular treat-
meal and are being treated with this
same   soothing,   healing   fluid?
DR. GEO. T. RICHARDSON frankly write:* "D. D. 1). is superior lo any
I thins  I  have  over  found.    Soft    and
I soothing, yet a powerful agent."
To do the work. 1).  I).  11.  1'ri'sorip-
; lion   must   be   applied   according   to
: directions   given    in   the       pamphlet
around every bottle.    Follow these di-
| rectlons -and see!
-And it certainly takes away th �� itch
jilt once    the moment the lipuid  is ap-
! plied.   The skin ie* soothed���calmed   -
so thoroughly refreshed���delightfully

The Straight Line
in Creating Demand
"A Straight Line is the
Shortest Distance between Two Points"
Whatever troubles old Euclid gave us in our schooldays
his axioms were simple enough. In our business life
to-day we show a lively appreciation of the truth of this
axiom in cutting out superfluous efforts���in the saving of
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." Ii is
the shortest distance between raw material and finished
In Selling Goods, the straight line is
Newspaper Advertising.
It is the shortest distance between the seller and the buyer.
Some manufacturers are applying the straight line in the
making of their goods, but neglecting it in the selling of
them. Some have no line of communication with the consumer at all- many let their message meander along bypaths of "chance acquaintanceship" instead of telegraphing it along the straight line of Newspaper Advertising.
Newspaper Advertising is the Shortest Distance between
the two points of "Supply" and "Demand."

Hellinghain, March 24. Local lumbermen are up in arms over President
Wilson's attitude on the Panama tolls.
They declare that the repeal of free
tolls will give the lumbering industries of Uritish Columbia the full
benefits that should be received by
Washington mill owners with the
opening of the Panama canal and that
Pacific coast lumber and shingle shippers would be Just as well off without
the canal If the administration's wish
Is carried out.
It wlll not only be disastrous to
the lumbering Industry in this state,
they say, but will mean that the remnant of the American merchant marine will be destroyed.
Thomas K. Karles, president of the
Earles-Cleaj-y Lumber and Shingle
company, says: ,ll can see where it
will be a direct injury to the people
of the state In general as well as the
Fred J. Wood, manager of the E.
K. Wood Lumber company, says: "We
won't have the N'ew Vork market we
have been figuring on since work on
the canal started lf the president's
desire is carried out, for the Canadian mills will get all the business and
we might as we.-ll quit."
J. J. Donovan of the Bloedel, Donovan mills, says: "The Canadians already have the advantage In shipping
under ae.i flags. The Canadians will
be able to ship lumber $3 a thousand
cheaper from Vancouver or New Westminster to New Vork than we can
from Hellinghani to the same destination. If the president's desire becomes effective we might just as well
not  have  the canal."

Ontario's Slaughter of Wild Ducks.
Over two million people in Ontario
are wailing to see what will be done
at the coming session of the Legislature to saie the lish and game supply.
Ninety per cent, of the wild ducks
killed during 1913 were purveyed by
the high-priced hotels aud cafes to
their wealthy patrons. The plain
citizen who enjoys the marsh shores,
tt here the birds are available, gets
the fresh air but no ducks.
The ruthless market hunter feeds
the wild ducks wheat and barley,
goes out in his launch, rounds up
the ducks, and slaughters them with
six and ten-shot pump guns. Is that
what  we  call     sport"?
There were 25,000 wild ducks killed by market hunters at Long Point
ih 1913. The slaughter at Point
Royal for last year was 63,000.
There were 17.500 wild ducks killed
by market hunters at Mitchell Hay
during the year. The number killed
off at Rondeau was 19,000.���Windsor Record.

Opposition Replies.
lion. G. P. Graham, minister of
railways under the late government,
replieei   on   behalf   of   the   opposition,
He declared thai lm was sorry that
the minister of railways wan not prei
enl. Had lie been then' there wen
a great many things which hid been
said by the acting mm'sl"! Which
wouhi have remained e.usald. Mr.
Cochrane had asked quite urumatlcally
and with his accustomed poise :"Wh<>
did lhe late government appoint on
tin* Investigating committee?" mid he
answered himself, "a lawyer, a nier-
chant, etc."
"Let mi' ask another question," said
.Mr. Graham.   "Wbo is over the pres*
enl commission?"
"A doctor from Prescott anil ho
thinks he is doing well. How much
wisdom as a specialist has he brought
to the work and yet lie never turned
a hand on 11 railway." The argument.
Mr. Graham declared, was the argu
ment ef a demagogue. It might just
as well be asked who was at the head
of the government with all these experts under him. It was a lawyer
and not an 1 ngineer. Was there, ask
ed Mr. Graham, an engineer at the
head of the C. V. H. or any other great
railway? There was not. They simply
surrounded themselves with the best
engineers they could get and they
temk their advice. What was needed
at the head of such an Institution was
a man of executive ability.
Charger Mistakes.
Mr. Graham charged the minister of
railways who hail just sat down, with
having made a mistake' to the extent,
of $41,000,000 as to the amount of
capital on which the (',. T. P. would be
called upon to pay rental al the end
of 11)22. He had added on the inte'r-
e*st of the estimated cost of the seven
years prior to the year 1922 win 11 the
i company would start paying rental.
1 He seemed lo have two motives. The
j first was to Injure the late government
land the second was to discredit the
|(i. T. P project and hurt the railway
Premier Borden It is perfectly
j plain that the country w ill have' to pay
j this extra amount.
Mr. Graham    The    prime    minister
lias admitted  the incorrectness of the
1 minister's statement     He declared the
I (!. T. P.  would have' to pay 11 per cent
on   a  capitalization    of    $223,000,000.
That  is  not  true  and  every  member
Of the government knows that It Is inn
true.    He  added   $41,000,000   in   one
mouthful and the N.T.R, Investigation
! added another  $40,000,000.
'Pile C. P. R. has already take 11 into
consideration the electrification of its
Westminster brunch according to VV.
!,. Darling, who Interviewed General
Superintendent F. Peters at Vancouver on the subject. This official ���'!
formed Mr. Darling that the electr fi-
cation of different lines througuout
British Columbia was contemplated by
the company, including the Westminster Hue. Mr. Darling was assured tha!
if this line were changed from steam
to electric (lower the operation of th"
service would be retained bj ihe
C. P. It. Mr. l'ele.-s during the Interview expressed the utmost confidence
in New Westminster and declared i!
was not. the' company's intention to
have  il   removed  from  tli"  map,
