farmer himself cannot be blamed entirely for this state of
affairs.  Several instances are known to us where produce
marketed in condition equal to that of any foreign produce
has netted the producer insufficient return to meet his
expenses in -growing it.
The reason for this is that in a great many cases the j Sn'"New
American fruit, which has to be purchased outright, has
been sold in preference to locally grown produce which is
on consignment.
There remains a world of learning upon this subject
to be acquired both by the farmers and the merchants and
it is for the purpose of gaining some of it that New Westminister is advocating thc getting together, or the institution of some co-operative plan, between the farmer, the
merchant and the consumer.

llut what is the use of doubling production if the farmer bas no direct
connection with the consumer? Why
should be be compelled to buy all the
'cols of his trade at tbe highest re
la!l prices? Why should he be com
polled to accept the lowest wholesale
rates for his produce? Whv should i'
be difficult for him to obtain crop
iredits at a reasonable interest rate?
So long as these questions can br-
ask?d, agricultural conditions will re
���naiii unsatisfactory. The drift toward
the cities will continue. It would appear that a government policy which
deals only with production Is one-sid-

If the undrained acreage now can
make $11 an acre, the laying of tile
would mean an Increase of almost loo
per cent. If the marsh lands were
reclaimed and sown their production
would reach ln round numbers J100,-

would then pass fiioo.nnn.noo.
This is not frenzied financing, but
a sane calculation based on the proved   results   which   drained   land   can
show,     nut  many   farmers   say   they
cannot afford to underdratn.    It costs
[all the way from fir, to $40 an acre.

Co-operative societies of farmers
should be able to secure money for
land improvement at a low rat
without too much clicking formality.
They could secure the use of one of

they could buy their tile in quantities

Sir Evelyn Wood V. C.
Recalls Stirring Times
London, April 10. -Although he is
row in bis seventy-sixth year. Sir Kve-
lyn Wood is just as fond of outdoor
recreation as be ever waa. Four or
five days a week he iB out with one
park or hounds or the ether, and be
who would eateh him at his pretty
home at Harlow, Essex, must be up
early In the morning.
A Daily    Chronicle   representative
who recently interviewed Ibe veteran
field marshall found It hard to believe that this alert, bright-eyed, active man wna gazetted aa midshipman
in April. 1ST.2. when he wns fourteen
years ot nue. After three years of
Bervlce In lhe navy. Sir Evelyn joined
the army na cornet ln Ibe Thirteenth
Light Dragoons <m September 7, lSr.ii.
Then there is tbe long list ot staff
appointment a, Trom acting aide-de-
camp, ,855, ti quartermaster-general
to tlie forces and adjutant-general.
And the war aervlces run through the
Crimea, lhe Mutiny, Ashantl, South
Africa, Kgypt and the Soudan.
"What is the secret of it?" he aald
In answer to a question, "Exercise,
nnd plenty of it. 1 hunt four or five
d-iya a week wben 1 can gel lt, and
thnt keeps ni" fit. Today 1 have had
n nine run with the EsBex. nnd thnt
makes my ninety-second day since we
started cub hunting laal autumn. Tomorrow' 1 am off for a day witb the
Wounded   in  Arm.
There were many objects of interest in the room to whloh tbe splendid
old soldier drew attention; Here Ib a
vicious looking bullet, a full Inch in
diameter, which found n snug resting
place In Sir Kvelyn Wood's arm. He
���was In the ditch of the Redan on that
fatal June 18 when so much brave
' British blood was split In vain.
"I saw some Russian soldiers pointing their guns nt nie over the parapet.
Instinctively I threw up my left arm
to shield my face, when a gun charged
with case shot, was fired close to ine.
This round bullet, which weighs five
nnd a half ounces, struck my arm
Just below the elbow."
In a glass-fronted case reposed a
small account book, full of crabbed
French writing, lt was the pocket
hook of a French soldier picked up
by Sir Evelyn's father on the field of
Waterloo, a few days after tho battle
was fought. It showed services In the
campaigns of 1R12, 1813 and 1814, and
1n lt was a faded carnation, the gift,
ll may he, of some .leanetle who sent
off her Jean to fight the Rosblfa under the Little Corporal,
Winning the V. C.
An ordlijary cavalry sword wub
hanging on the wall. Sir Evelyn took
It down. With It ho had won for him-
Belf that most coveted of all trophlea
the Victoria Cross. It was ln India
during the Mutiny. At Slndhorn, In
December, 1859, he was In command
of a troop of native horse. One dav
4h�� news came thai an Influential
litiid owner named Chemmuin Singh
.had been carried off by a hand of re-
, bilis. Chemmum Singh had always
.remained loyal to the llritiah govern-
! ment. and Lieut, Wood wna after his
! capture with the same daah that be
| now goes arter a fox from the Essex-
After riding eighty-six miles, he and
' two of hia troopers enme upon the
, rebels in camp. Without a moment's
hesitation, he dashed In, and rescued
their prisoner. Eighty-three to three
these were the odds.
A yenr later, with the satin- sword
Lieut. Wood, then with tlle 17th Lan-
Irers nt Sindwaho, bad attacked a body
of mutineers. In company with sir
Edward Bradford, afterwards cotnmls
'sinner of the metropolitan police.
Ilere were a dozen portraits of Napoleon, wiih copies of two ef his con
I scrip tlon notices. One of these waa
I printed In French and Flemish, and
| had boen posted In Antwerp. "That

Paseenger Describes Trip on Zeppelin
From   Duseeldorf   to   Berlin���Up
Wind   From   Hamburg.
While ploughing at Ashwell, Herts,
a farm laborer turned up a leaden object, which on examination by experts, proves to be a balla, or seal, of
J'opo Innocent I. (A. D. 402-417).
A fascinating description   of an air
trip by  Zeppelin from  Dusstldorf   to
llerlin is supplied by a passenger to j
World's Work tor March.
The Btart v.ob made at 4:30 in the j
morning, and, says the writer, "after
the arrival of my fellow passengers,
who numbered twenty-three, the automatic docking apparatus drew the
ship Into tbe open, and as we entered
the cabin tbere was not one ot us who
did not show evidences of n fever of
Air was pumped into the last bal-
lonet at the ktern, and the Viktoria
Lulse tilted her nose at a sharp angle
toward the sky. So nicely balanced
was tbe ship between lift and dead
weight that the driving power of the |
motors was required to send her up-'.
ward like an aeroplane.
As soon as a sntirfartory level waa '
reached the air was discharged, and '
we assumed a perfectly level position.
"A Zeppelin airship leaves the
earth wilb nunc of the balloon's soaring motion. It is just like a train,
started without perceptible jar aud
kept in motion upon a perfect roadbed.
p< rfect truck, and perfect wheels.
"Bremen came to ua a little before
seven o'clock, nud ns we Bwept In wide
rlrcli-s above the city we could see its
arnili s or men going to their work.
They were little Interested In ub. The
airship is an old story In Germany.
"Hamburg was reached just an hour
and  a halt after we left  Bremen  be- j
hind.   Again we made great loops over
the    city,   which    with     itB  harbor.
Wharves, and houses, was spread out
as  though  lt had  been   modeled   of *
clay.   The hum of thousnndB of voices
OOUld  be heard  above the clatter of
our own motors.    From Hamburg we
took n  southeast course against  the
wind,   traveling  In   the  direction   of]
Berlin.   At noon we were flying up the I
Elbe valley by wny of Bergedorf and
Domlts.     In  another  two   hours   we
reached Wittenberg.
Siesta In Armchair.
"In tho menntime individual tables
had been placed In position and luncheon was served much aB it Ib In the
ordinary dining-car. There was soup,
an entree, n roast���all piping hot-
vegetables, salad, cheese, nnd coffee
more or a dinner than a luncheon, and
all served as though the chef and
waiters had tho conveniences of n
great hotel nl their command. The
principles of the firelesa cooker had
been brought Into service ln preparing
tho food; the exhaust from the engines being made to supply heat.
"After luncheon Beveral passengers
dojed comfortably In their armchairs
enjoying the sun that shone through
tho starboard windows. A better
placo for an afternoon nap than the
cabin of a Zeppelin airship cannot
well be Imagined.   The drone of tho
motors becomes a lullaby. There Ib
the sense of motion-swift motion-
and yet not even the slightest jar. An
almost Imperceptible vibration is felt
only when a hand is placed on a side
wall of the cabin.
"For the purpose of a laboratory tho
airship is ideal. It has been proposed,
; and seriously, by German surgeons.
; to turn thc cabin of the Viktoria Lulse
into a temporary operating room when
certain delicate surgery has to be performed. The upper air is so pure that
it really acts as an antiseptic, and re- j
moves all danger of poison.
Over   Imperial   Palace.
"After Nauen, Spandau and Chariot-;
tfenburg came quickly into view.    We
were over the Imperial palace fifteen I
minutes   before  four o'clock,   having
made the flight from Hamburg in less!
than four hours,   Following the Spree
Hiver,   we   came   in   five   minutes    to *
the Air Traffic Company's dock.   The
Viktoria   Lulse   pointed   h.r   bow   to-j
wards the landing-place, and tbe three .
motors drove the big thlp downward j

I vertical metal tube flanked by two
i smaller ones and ending in three hol-
; low ridges to hold feathers or borse-

Evidently the helmet, judging by ita
elaborate  crest,   belonged   to a  great
warrior or chief.

Co-Operative Societies
Lower Cost of Living
Ask the average Canadian what is
meant by the co-operative movement,
and if he should bave any in formation on the -subject at all ha will probably answer that it means co-operative selling of farm produce by farmers. This limited view of tiie movement Is one of the greatest difficulties with which the organized co-operators have to contend n disseminating knowledge of co-operative principles In Canada.
The co-operative principle ls a natural und moral one. It is the extension of an bbvloUS and fundamental
natural law; to human association. In
Its application to Industry It requires meli to work together for the
common Rood and lo be Individually
content with the enjoyment only of
tho equivalent of the social value of
th personal labor of each man to society. Its methods are voluntary and
lt relies upon the maximum of moral
persuasion and the minimum of force
for the redress of social and economic
The Distributive Store.
The movement usually commences,
It is true, with the distributive store.
As we must produce before we can-
sumo this would seem to be a reversal
of the natural order of things.
Co-operators, however, produce for
use and not for profit, and it is necessary, therefore, they should ascertain
the needs of the consumers by organising distribution before proceeding
to organize the production of merchant! iec to satisfy the needs of mankind.
It is for this reason that workers
can usually rely upon steady employ-
���lent at current rates in co-operative
factories when capitalistic institutions are on short time and at reduced
When, therefore, the reader sees a
little co-operative store opened In
Canada hebut wltnerses the planting
of the economic seed of the movement. If i ��� Eced should be liberally
distributed throughout the country,
and lt successfully germinates, evidence thereof is given by the establishment of a wholesale society, owned jointly by the individual retail so-
cities, whicb are, In their turn, owned by the consumers of the neighborhood in which they are respectively
When the wholesale demand is sufficiently developed, the next step is
the organization of factories to produce the goodB the associated con-
aumera need. The capitalists are the
working-men themselves through their
retail societies. They get but a normal hiring rate for the use of their
capital. The profits are devoted partly to the common good and partly by
way of dividend on the purchases of
each retail society, so that the organ-
| ized    consumers    have    returned    to
' them   the    profits   of-  the    manufac-
! Hirer, wholesaler, and retailer.
The British  Movement.
The grent British movement Is furnished with its merchandise   by the
| Co-operative   Wholesale   Society,   except in Scotland, where the service Is
given   by   the   Scottish    Co-operative
! Wholesale Society.    These two organisations   for   all     practical    purposes
1 may be regarded aB one, so   Intimate
i and sympatbttic are they ln asBocla-
They represent Britain's greatest
I monument to the intellectual capacity,
| altruistic zeal and associative spirit
I of British workinginen. Owned by
: workinginen, democratically controll-
| ed, managed, and operated by work-
] ingmen, tbey may, indeed, be regarded
las the industrial phenomena of the
! world.
i Nowhere on Ibis planet Is there another industrial undertaking which ls
j engaged In so many lines of produc-
] tlon ub either of theBe two working-
j men's institutions, the forerunners of
the co-operative commonwealth.
Large Factories.
| The British co-operators do such a
large business that they have found It
I necessary to undertake the manufac-
j ture of most of the goods they sell.
! For instance, their factories at
; Broughton, near Manchester, are devoted to cabinet making, tailoring,
mantlea, shirts, underclothing, etc.
Recently, when tliere was a strike
of furniture makers in England, the
strikers' committee circulated a leaflet urging all trades unionists and
co-operators to buy no furniture eex-
cept that made at the works of the
Co-operative Wholesale Society at
Broughton and Pelaw; the society
having satisfied the requirements of
,the strikers' committee.
Ab a result a considerable number
of additional employees have been
added to the Broughton furniture factory. Producing for use instead or for
profit Insures, ln a relative sense,
just and humane treatment to the ac-
j tual manufacturers of the goods, the
working men employed In the factories.
The   sales   from     the     ready-made
clothing factory last year amounted to
j $256,820,   and  found   employment   for
J787   people.     In   the  shirtmaklng  department   the    sales    were   $510,460,
' with 484 workers.    The output of the
. wool working nnd cabinet making factory  was  $160,000,  the  working  people numbering  177.
The  collection   of  factories,   which
is one of many owned by the Co-opera-
. live Wholesale Society, finds employment,   therefore,   for    1448    workers,
who turn out nnnually merchandise to
| the value of $',i27.060.

A means for the celebration of the
approaching centenary of Brlti8h-Atn
erican peace is the purchase and mail:
tainence as a place of pilgrimage and
memorial of Sulgrave Manor, the
home of (ieorge Wasliington'8 ances
tors in Northamptonshire, England.
Tke movement now has tlie consider
j-tion of the Historical Society of
America, and may result in a country-wide subscription to raise funds
for the purchase or the Bite. Of tlu
many thousands of Americans who
throng to Stratford every year, perhaps only a small number are aware
that the ancestral home cf the Wa^h
ingtons is only a few miles away. Stili
smaller Is the number who make a
pilgrimage to Sulgrave or to Bring
ton, ten miles farther, though the
memories and traditions of these
places aro bo closely connected with
Ithe ancestors of Oeorge Washington.
At Wormlelgh, nearby, there is an
old church which bas Hie records
chronicling the marriage of Ilobert
Washington in 1565 and the birth of
bis son (Ieorge in 1608, antedating
bis famous namesake in America by
more than a century. Kven now lt
would be bard to follow on the map
ihls maze of byroads which, winding
Ibetween the hawthorn hedges, gliding
i neatb the overarching branches of an-
|dent elms lead through villages which
are the very embodinn nt of quiet anil
And   Sulgrave,   the   cradle   of   the
Washingtons, seems the sleepiest and
lonliest of them all���a gray, struggling
|hamlet, with only here and there a
dash of color from flower beds or viv
Id walls, looking much as it musl
have looked when the last Washing
Ion was lord of the manor, more than
three  hundred  years ngo.
The old Washington home in a little
to one side of the village, and a stony
path leads hit* thn farm yard, where
most any day one may find tbe good
man who lives there stabling IiIb
horses. A typical country woman���of
the tenant elasa���will welcome the
visitor to Sulgrave Manor.
lt is the place that form a Bite for
the peace centenary when the purchase arrangements of the manor are
completed. Tho old Washington home
is not extensive or imposing���it never
was, for that matter���for threo hundred years ago domestic accommodations were not elaborate even In the
homes of gentility, and while tho
i Washingtons ranked high among the
gentry,  they  did  not possess a tille.
The liouse tjas not been greatly al-
| tered in outward appearance, at
least - and fortunately, the thick stone
wall and heavy oaken beams yield
but slowly to time'B ravages. The
most Imposing feature Is the solid
black oak staircase, wllh its curiously
twisted bannlsterB. Nothing, however
ImpreBses the American visitor so
much aa the Washington coat of arms
executed In plaster In one of the gab
les by tho ancient owner.     " - ,
This coat of arms had suffered
much from the weather, but has been
protected lately by a glass covering,
Tho outer walls wero originally covered with plaster, but this has fallen
away in many placeB, showing the
rough Btone underneath, and elsewhere half hide the small, square-
pancd windows.
If one follows the rough cobblestone
walk it will bring him to Sulgrave
church, and It here one must stop and
look for the caretaker, otherwise he
enters  not,  for  Sulgrave  church  has
. been kept under strict lock and key
ever   since   one   of   the   Washington
[brasses was stolen--by an American,
of oai.r-w- a few years ago.
The story of Sulgravo's connection
l witli the Washingtons is not common,
i and a short sketch of it may not be
amiss. In the reign of Henry VIII.,
Lawrence Washington was mayor of
Northampton and a gentleman of con
; sequence. Sulgrave was among the
confiscated  church  lands  which  thc
, VtliiK was offering at bargain prices,
and Lawrence Washington purchased
'.it for $1500,
HI" pr.in-ison, another Lawrence,
was forced by adverse circumstances
, to sell the estate, and be, with a large
family, moved to Little Brlngton, some.
ten miles to ;ho north-east, of Sulgrave, where he was given a house,
it is believed by the Karl of Spenser,
to which noble family the Washingtons were related by marriage.
The Lawrence Washington who was
buried  in Oreat  llringlon church was
the great-great-grandfather of Oeorge
Washington, the first American, In

London, April 10.���The report ol
Ooo. It. Mitchell, the liritisli consul at
IquitoB, Peru, on his tour of the l'utii-
mayo district, whicb was made in connection with American Consul Fuller,
was issued today, ami does not, for
some reasons plainly Indicated, even
yet let the full light of day fall on that
remote und ill-fated region. From
the outset difficulties were placed in
the path of the consuls.
Despite their desire to travel alone
as much as possible to make independent observations, the consuls were
joined at the mouth of the Pututnayo
I river by Hoy de Castro, Peruvian consul at Manes, and Senor J. ti, Arana,
! the  latter's  brother-in-law,  and other
I officers,   who  subjected  them  to  the
1 Bhadowing    process    throughout    the
\ tour.
Mr. Mitchell says he certainly saw-
no evidence of barbarity during bis
journey, but even If such practices
were going on it would have been impossible to know of tbem, "for, with
the exception of a three days' march,
*we were never free from the company
of a large party of officials and agents
of the company, whose constant ef
forts to put forward the best of everything, and expatiate on the satisfactory conditions of tho nativeB, the
egnerous paternal treatment by the
Peruvians, and the good relations existing between the Indians and white
men. were so evident as to become
quite wearisome.
"Castro Beamed bent on spreading
the whitewash with a lavish hand, antl
Arana everywhere wished to be call
ed 'Papa Arana' by the women and
children. It was impossible to see
tho people in the native wildB."
Whenever the consuls tried to talk
privately to the Indians, employees of
the Peruvian Amazon Company, who
knew the language, would approach
and the people would Immediately
cease   to  be  communicative.    Consul
i Mitchell's general conclusions are
thua summed up.
"No evidence of cruelties now being
perpetrated came to our notice. The
policy of the company, under Sonor
Tizon's management has been changed for the better, but the dispositions
of the government for securing Justice a��d good treatment have hitherto
been entirely inadequate, and the new
arrangements have not yet developed
enough, bo thut we are not able to
judge of Iheir results. Consequently
the fate of the Indian lies almost
wholly In the hands of the commercial
concern, the future of which Is very
doubtful, and whose action may have
to change  with  its  fortunes.
"The present state of things will depend very largely upon the continuance of the policy of the company's
agents at La Cherrera KI Kncanto. anil

proposals of the Peruvian govern

Eadgcs of Betrothal or Matrimony Are
New Universally Worn on  Left
nual   meiting  of   Iho   Royal    llniled
In Kurope no other finger than the
lrrd of the left hand Ib now ever considered for either an engagement or
wedding ring. But it was not always
to. At Ihe time of the Reformation it
wss just coming into fashion, and the
rule, says London Til-Bits, in discussing the subject, in the ancient Greek
Church was the use of the right hand
third finger. Wedding rings have
been used back us far as we have nny
records, and the right hand was the
favored one.
There are no authentic reasons for
���he change save that, the right hand
being in active use the ring was more
liable to wear and injury, as the gold
used was exceedingly soft. A fifth
century writer speaks ver entertain
Ingly of rings. It was then the fash-
ion to wear groat numbers of them,
elaborately set wllh jewels, carved,
and sometimes of massive designs and
proportions, so that the hands thus
laden were scarcely fitted for heavy
work. Then the rings begnn to be
worn exclusively upon the left hand
leaving lhe right one free.
Fanciful Reason Given.
The fanciful reason given by many
for the use of the third hand finger
Is that II Is nearest the heart, and, as
an old chronicle says, this digit "hath
especially the honor to bear rings.
The story of the signet ring has an
Interest to all, for history tellB us that
every free mall in Greece was privi-
leged to wear his signet ring, and it
was much prized possession.
The custom was evidently adopted
from the Sabines, and free citizens or
Home made some of theirs of iron.
Afterward, when Home was luxuriat-
ng in lur tremendous power nnd was
in the Inight of glory, many a staunch
id Roman displayed his signet ring of
Iron In token of Ills regard for the
symbol of former davs.

must be given credit as special organizer for having raised the membership of the court to its present satisfactory state, occupied the chair.
Mr. W. It, Darling, secretary of the
Progressive associatioa had a conference with Mr. Frank Harris, publicity
manager of the B. C. E. II. at Vancouver yesterday respecting arrangements
for handling tourist excursions from
Vancouver via New Westminster down
the Fraser river and learned that arrangements were now under way for
satislactory boat connections at New
Westminster  and   Steveston.
Mr. Harris explained to Mr. Darling
that It was not feasible to run thc
Bightseelng cars on the interurban
lines as had been suggested for two
reasons. These were that the interurban lineB were operated under a Dominion charter which prohibited the
use of city rolling stock and that ln
order not to interfere with the regular traffic It would be necessary to
run the sightseeing cars at a speed
that would cause considerable dla-.
comfort to passengers, which would
not be desirable.
The newest type of interurban cars
lend themselves admirably for observation purposes, Mr. Darling was told
on account of the windows being unusually high and supported by narrow-
panels which left little obstruction
to lhe view.
They had the added advantage of
protection in case of inclement
weather. It is hoped that in the
course of a few days that final ar-
rangements for the trip will be completed.
Pleased   With   Idea  of   Teaching
Children Folk Dances In the
On or before the month of August
all the school teachers of the eity will I
be required to qualify In physical
training in accordance with the new j
provincial School act. This was
brought out at a meeting Ol the school
board last evening and Miss Strong.
the municipal inspector was Instructed to inform all the teachers In the
city of the fact.
The board endorsed the action of
Miss Strong In permitting simple English dances to be taught to the children In the schools In preparation for
the May Day celebration.
It was shown by Miss Strong that
these  dances  were  prescribed-'under
! the School act and therefore the board
! could 6Pe no reason why tbey should
not be permitted.
Mr. T. J. Trapp, chairman of the I
board, stated that the dances were a I
step in the right direction and of a
highly educational value. The mntter
was brought up through the receipt
of a letter from the chairman of the
dancing oommlttee of the May Day
celebration committee requesting the
board to endorse the steps taken to
Introduce these beautiful dances at
the Westminster May Day.
It was decided to notify the eon-
tractors not to go ahead with the proposed retaining wall around the high
schools grounds. Chairman Trapp and
Trustee Peck pointed out that when
the ground was visited with the members of the council it was thought ill"
wisest course was to gradually slope
the grounds down to the sidewalk on
Queen's avenue. Tho sidewalk it was
6tated would stand 25 feet from the
school grounds.
The question of what Improvements
the council were going to mnke on
Iloval avenue was discussed by tho
board. Mr. Peck stated that the board
wanted to see one roadway but that
the city engineer favored a boulevard
in the middle with two roadways each
on different levels. The building and
grounds committee were appointed to
meet Ihe board of works committee of
the council to see what they intended
to do with the street.

Mr. Gay or Richmond supported Mr.
Wade's arguments, but the president
���itrongly opposed the Westminster
man's motion as he considered it as
much as throwing the project down
entirely. Mr Heaps said that he
could talk fo- half an hour on reasons
In favor of the canul project and as
a Westminster manufacturer himself
he gave instances or the advantage It
would be to the lumbering industry,
liriek makers, his own industry and
other points affecting the tourist Irade.
Ile suggested that. Mr. Wade would
not press his motion.
There Was no Reply.
Replying, Mr. Wude ask'd president Heaps if he was to understand
that Mr. Heaps' proposal was to take
materia] from his own Industry up the
I Fraser river against the stream, then
up the Pitt river against the stream,
through possibly four or six locks on
the canal and then down Burrard Inlet to Vancouver, to which tliere was
no reply.
The resolution being pri used an
amendment moved by Mr. llulbert.
was placed before the meeting to the
same off. et as Mr. Wade's motion with
'he addition that tiie subject was reserved io take under consideration

The amendment was put and the
vote being equal the chairman gave

carried asking the provincial government to take Immediate steps to build

Nelson, April 10.���Although there
was talk of compromise between employers and strikers yesterday, the
prospects of settlement this morning
are not bright, unless the men consent
to return to work on the schedule
prepared by the employers last week,
in which some laborers are offered an
Increase of 25 cents per day, and
others who represent a very small
percentage of the whole, are reduced
a similar amount.
The talk of compromise on the part
of the employers was brought to an
end by a meeting last night at which
the Employers' and Merchants' Association unanimously decided to stand
firm on Its scale. The men are asking
40 cents per hour for laborers, against
%a.'i'i for nine hours offered by the"
employers. It is un this clause of the!
scale that the fight is now concen- I
