Doubleheader Freight Train
Ditched at Bellevue and
One Killed.
Both Engines Leave Rails���Train Just
Previously  Had  Passed  Safely
Over Switch.
Calgary, Feb. 16. -What is alleged
by C P. R. officials to be the work of
train wreckers caused a railroad
smashup at Bellevue at 2:10 this
morning when two engines were derailed with the1 result that a man was
killed. A double header freight train,
westbourfd. ran into the ditch, both
turning completely over. Engineer
Harry Thompson, who lived at Mac*
leod and who is well known among
trainmen in Calgary, was thrown under one of the engines aud the life
crushed out of his body.
At the time of the wreck the train
was travelling at a good rate of speed.
The engines left the rails. The train
hands jumped and all escaped injury
except Thompson, who evidently was
in such a position that he couid not
get out of the cab. The engines tore
up the ground for a short distance
and then plied on top of one another
on the side. Several cars followed
and considerable damage was done
to rolling stock.
A train had passed over the switch
a short time previous to the wreck.
The matter has been placed in the
bauds of the mounted police.
Thompson made an effort to escape
death and almost succeeded. .lust
before the final crash he jumped
from tin? cab and f<41 on the side of
the bank, but could not retain his
hold and rolled back under the engine and was cut to pieces.
A sad feature In connection with
his death was that he was to be married very shortly. He came from
Belleville. Ont., and was about 38
years of age.
Third Shift Will Be Put to Work in Near Future and Work
Carried to Completion���Monthly Payments of $1400
to Harbor Engineer to Stop Until Work Is Finished on
Present Unit���Over-paid for Work Done so Far.
Sentenced to Hang, Jasper
Collins Is Unconscious���
Seeks Reprieve.
The announcement that it was hoped soon to put a third shift to work on
the harbor scheme, the statement that the hatbor engineer had already received more money than wag coming to him on a basis of 6 2-3 per cent of
the amount spent on actual construction and the decision to discontinue
the payments of $1400 monthly to him until the work already under way is
completed were tho important developments in the harbor situation at the
meeting of the city council last night.
Alderman Annandale, chairman of the harbor committee, went into the
matter fully and while no criticism of the harbor scheme was made, It was
plain that the policy of retrenchment had not been lost sight of In this department and that the committee waB determined to get for the city value
received for every dollar expended.
Engineer's Agreement.
According to the terms of the agreement between the city and A. O.
Powellt the engineer is to receive 6 2-3 per cent on the amount of money-
spent In actual construction. This Is not to include the cost of the sale of
bonds nor money paid out In connection with the water lot leases.
Alderman Annandale pointed out that Mr. Poweii, also according to the
agreement, had been receiving $1400 per month since July, 1912, when the
document was signed and that he had received five payments in 1912, twelve
in 1913 and two this year, or a total of $26,200.
Damage Suits.
The phase of the situation that Alderman Annandale laid stress on, was
that no amount had been set aside for the settlement of the water lot leases.
It was hard to tell just what sum would be necessary for this purpose butt,graphed to the head of the mounted
Bill English Says He Never
Made Remarks About
Bill English will probably appear in
court of his own uecord some time
this week to satisfy the honorable
JusUce Morrison that the clemency
Of the latter was not wasted in al
le wing him out on suspended sentence
after a conviction had been registered
against him on the charge of having
taken part In an unlawful assembly
during the strike troubles at Nanaimo
last hummer.
l^ast week, while disposing of the
cases of the fourteen men who had
been in jail awaiting sentence, and
who were also allowed to go, his lordship stated that it had been reported
to him that, after his release, English
had returned to Nanaimo and had
said all kinds of thing about the
Nanaimo police and the special assize
court in New Westminster, as the
judge put it, bad "don? everything
that might be expected of a dishonorable mnn." In commenting on what
he. had heard of the alleged conduct
of English, his lordship said he hoped
that he had been misinformed and If
such was the case Ihe miner should
appear in court to deny the charge,
though after his release the court had
no further power over him.
English saw the report of his lordship's remarks in the papers and the
other day totally repudiated the statements attributed 'o him, adding that
the hoftorable Justice Morrison had
ben gravely misinformed,
The miner denies that he ever said
anything In Nanaimo that might be
twisted into the remarks reported tt:
the judge as having come from him.
Naturally, he said, he had spoken of
his trial, but lie had not abused the
Nanaimo police nor had he ever referred in any way to the court, either
disrespectfully or otherwise.
The question between himself and
the judge, English says, lie can clear
up, as his lordship suggests, by a
personal appearance In court and this
h likely will do duriug the present
Will Die in Calgary This Morning Unless Respite Is Granted at Once
���Refused Food,
Ottawa, Feb. 16.���Thn report that
Jasper Collins, sentenced to hang at
Calgary tomorrow for murder will te
taken to the scaffold in a chair owing
to the fact that he was unconscious,
was brought to the attention of Hon.
J. 0. Doherty, minister of justice at 6
o'clock tonight. The somewhat startling intelligence was conveyed to the
minister In a wire from the solicitor
of the condemned man who stated
that Collins had been unconscious for
a week and that to hang a man in
that condition would be wrong.
Upon receipt of- the telegram the
minister of justice wired Collins' attorney to the effect that under the
Criminal code, he had power to go to
the trial judge to state the con,I*.1.on
of the prisoner and to ask for a reprieve which the judge had the power
to grant.    The  minister    also    tele

already one stilt for damages had been commenced.   Provision must therefore be made and a sum set aside for this purpose.
Alderman Annandale further pointed out that if Mr. Powell was paid at
this rate he would soon have received an amount equal to the amount he
was to receive for tho whole unit. Mr. Powell, he said, was perfectly agreeable to the plan and the hai bor works would go on with as much enthusiasm
as at present.
Mr. Powell up to the present time ha.i received $26,200, which at 6 2-3
pei cent of the actual amount of construction, even if he never received another cent, would make the cost of the work, $393,000, leaving of the bylaw-
money after the amount of $41,000 had been deducted for the commission
and shrinkage in connection with the bond sale, just $66,000 for the settlement of the water lot leases. If, however, Mr. Powell was to receive $1400
until his twenty-four months' contract is completed In August, there would
be left approximately $69,000.
There Is also a pro-vision in the contract with the engineer th*t rn the
event of the work being prolonged over twenty-four months, the engineer
is to receive for a reasonable time his out-of-pocket expenses.
Work Progressing,
Alderman Annandale read a report from Harbor Engineer Powell showing the amount ot expenditure during January and the result of a trip of
Inspection by William Barr, which showed that the amount of silt lost from
the fill was practically a negligable quantity.
During January the engineering expenses were, $1400; repairs, operation of plant, $4807.42; miscellaneous expenses of fill, $414.30; purchase of
gravel. $2626.30; piles, timber and wharf, $3432.51, or a total of $12,685.53.
The quantity of material handled during tbe month was as follows:
Sand, 24.593 cubic yards; gravel, 3233, or a total of 27,826 cubic yards.
"It costs as much." proceeded the report, "to unload and,place the gravel
as it dors to dredge, tow and unload sand. Therefore ln arriving at unit
prices the total quantity of material is taken. If we divide the total amount
of material inteo item 4 of cost it glveB 17 3-10 cents per cubic yard." If we
divide the total quantity of material into the sums of items 4 and 5 It gives
18 8-10 cents per cubic yard. The same rates for December were 18 1-10
cents and 19 4-10 cents respectively.
Inspected Work.
"It will be of interest to you to learn that last week 1 instructed Wil
Ham Barr to make a survey of the fill and compute as accurately as possible the total amount of material in place. Mr. Barr's report on Feb. 10
showed that there was 56.633 cubic yards of sand and gravel and rock. Our
records of barge displacements, and estimated specific gravity gave 56.549
cubic yards, the two records being almost identical and showing that the
loss Is a negligable quantity, even if our estimates and specific gravity had
been too Sigh."
Acting Mayor Kellington after hearing the report said it was very gratifying to hear that Mr. Barr. a man well known In the city, hail made such
a .statement, all the more gratifying in view of the criticisms that were heard.
Third Shift Soon.
Alderman Annandale also made a verba! report on the labor question.
He stated that the harbor committee had investigated and had found that
with the exception of three, all the men had been secured through the medium ot the civic labor bureau. The other three had been appointed with
the full consent of last year's council. He also announced that it was hoped
soon to put on a third shift when a number more citizens would be given

Expected  Senate  Will  Pass Measure
as Submitted, But Will Never
Become Law.
Washington, Feb. 16���President
Wilson will veto the Burnett Immigration bill if it comes to him for his signature with the so-called literacy test
contained in it.
Tills became known from an authoritative source tonight, after Chairman Smith, of the senate immigration
committee, had announced that the
bill, virtually as it passed the house.
Including the literacy test, would be
favorably reported to the senate soon
Prospects are that the bill will pass
the senate as reported from the committee, but the measure never will become law, according to close friends
of the president.
The president does not consider
literacy a test of character and believes some other means should be
devised to prevent undesirable aliens
from entering the United States. He
told callers today that he had given
his view to the senate committee and
had left it to them to make It public
or not as they chose.
It also became known tonight that
suggestions with reference to Chinese
and Japanese immigration made to
the house committee on immigration
last Friday by Commissioner General
Caminetti, of the immigration bureau,
are not in accord with the views of
the president. Mr. Caminetti's views
were expressed without previous
knowledge by the White House. The
Burnett bill contains no Asiatic exclusion provisions, the house having

The stand taken by some people and papers in Vancouver with regard to New Westminster and all things
pertaining thereto would be ridiculous were it not pitiful
as an example of the depth of petty meanness to which
a certain kind of man will go in his hatred of a prosperous
rival. This stamp of individual, who helps to keep down
the average moral tone in Vancouver by living there,
wouldn't admit for the fraction of a holy second that he
is jealous of Westminster, but at the same time he can't
explain what prompts all the mean things he is ready to
say about this town if he hears of a new industry coming
to the Fraser river.
The other day the Ward Five Conservative association of the Terminal City suddenly tumbled to the fact,
of which pretty nearly everybody else had been aware for
some time, that the member for New Westminster district
at Ottawa was following out the lines of his plain duty in
trying to land the Dominion grain elevators for the Fraser
river. If the Ward Five association could have found any
place to exercise it, it would have had a brain storm, but
it did the next best thing and wired H. H. Stevens and
everybody else it could think of at Ottawa to tell them
to impress on the government what an impossible place
New Westminster or any other point on the Fraser would
be for an elevator site and that the right spot was Port
Moody. Evidently the Ward Five aggregation didn't stop
to think that the cabinet at the capital can lay claim to
some brains and that the first question which would arise
out of its childish action would.be, "What in the name of
common sense has Ward Five Conservative association of
Vancouver got to do with Westminster or Port Moody?"
Then one of the daily sheets over on the inlet that
prints everything but facts took a few moments off to
empty a can of mud at the local member for daring to ask
for elevators for the Fraser river.
Nobody here for one moment .suppqges that such is
the attitude of the better thinking class of Vancouver people, but locally, considerable sympathy is extended to them
in the sore trial it must be to have to acknowledge such
soreheads as fellow citizens.

month to accomplish the same result
that costs us from $6 up.
The Janitor's Eggs.
Further Inquiry at the office establishes t'ne fact that the janitor brings
in on the car every morning, throughout the winter, a basket of eggs his
back yard flock produces that brings
him more money than the wage he
earns scribbing the floors and emptying baskets for you. Interested, now
you start for the bigger plant and
are astonished to find that the commercial man actually markets far
more eggs in winter than he does in
summer because he sells on the market when eggs nre high and puts
low���either way he makes money.

Many Instances Possible.
There are many illustrations that
might be told of Where the back lot

Reynolds Had No Scruples.
It is a well known fact that in the
pursuit of their hobby coKectors or
fanciers will very frequently go to
almost criminal lengths, and will perform acts that in any other circumstances they would shrink from. This
appears to have been the case with
Sir Joshua and some of the greatest
pat-ons of art in Kngland. He felt
that when he had a valuable picture
stolen in Italy and brought to Kngland he was enriching his country,
just as a general does when he captures a province. He argued, probably, that the copy he had left behind
was, for all practical purposes, just
as good as the original as long as nobody knew the difference, and that
the general public in Italy or any other country would benefit just as much
from looking at the substitute as at
the original, lie admits in one of the
letters that he had absolutely no scruples at all in this matter, though it Is
well known that in other respects he
was a most punctilious man.
Today the ratepayers are called upon to choose between mere man and fair feminity for the vacant seat
on the school board, but the voting can go only one way to
allow the vanquished to admit that the "best man won."
Another ritual murder case in Russia. Evidently the
man who lays charges in Kiev has no originality or he'd
have had something fresh to serve up for spring consumption.
Bar Hindus but admit Japs is the suggestion of the
United States representative from Alabama. "Well,
every man to his state," as the old lady remarked when
ihe kissed the cow.
A man has reached Montreal claiming to have walked
across Behring straits. Since a now well known doctor
returned from up above with a talc of having found the
north pole, most of these yarns about the frigid zone are
regarded as "cooked."
In November there was a walk-out in the shoe trade
at Ottawa. Now it's awl over, the last grievance has been
dealt with, everybody is toeing the mark though some took
a severe lacing before they came to time, and the sole idea
of each man concerned is to pick up the thread of business.
The breach in shoe circles is heeled and the trouble is
patched up.

American    Clergyman    Tackles     Big
Problem in Practical Manner���
Some Hints.
Lecturing recently in Toronto on
Uie "Had Hoy Myth." Kev, Robert ,1.
Floody, D.D., of Worcester, Mass.,
said: The boy problem was the most
serious one before the churches at
present. Nearly every church lost
seventy-five per cent, of the boys
which came to them through the Sunday school. Further, there were not
many churches with a membership of
500 anywhere on the continent that
reclaimed a single boy from the
streets in a year. The reason fcr this
lamentable state of affairs lay in the
fact that the boy was not properly
Within every boy was a "sleeping
angel," and the duty of the church
and Sunday school authorities was to
awaken that "angel." They must put
aside the foolish notion that the ideal
child was one that, would sit still for
an hour or two at a time: such a
chiltl was a weakling. T'ae robust,
healthy boy could not keep still five
minutes; lie was a hunch of nerves
and muscless, always eager and ready
for action. Hoys loved freedom and
hated restraint, yet parents and teachers had always wanted to keep boys
in restraint. In the cities and towns
regulations were tpade to prevent
boys doing many things. So far had
this gone that what was a country's
boy's joy. shouting, singing and romping, became the city boy's crime.
Restlessness   Not  Wickedness.
After twenty years' experience with
boys lie had reached the conclusion
that the boy visas a "perpetual motion
machine," but his restlessness was
not wickedness, in fact, there was no
wiokedneHs in boys under IB years of
age. They were full of life, animation, energy, force, and always ready-
to go anywhere and do anything. They
.inly required proper thandllng. The
tenderest thing in the world was a
boy's heart, if you only knew how to
reach it. The trouble was people did
not study t'.i" characteristics of the
boy; it was all right to correct ;i boy's
faults; to show him when he was doing wrong, but at the same time it
was essential to appeal to his better
nature and show him how to do right.
In other words, it was all right to
give a boy a dressing-down provided
you gave him a dresslng-up at the
same time. By the latter process you
gained bis love and respect, whereas
by the foimer alone you engineeied a
spirit of disgust in him.
Boys Tortured at School.
Most boys disliked going to school
because the surroundings were uncongenial, children were tortured by
being kept on a hard seat four or
five hours every day. The sy.item of
education needed changing. The mornings should be devoted to academic
matters, but in the afternoons the
children should have plenty nf lite
and action. Give them natural train-
Ing, military dr''1, gardening���anything that would keep them busy and
develop their powers of action. Under such a system it would be Impossible to keep the children away from
school, because they would enjoy it.
Further, such a system would Inculcate in them a love of work. He was
not an advocate of too much play
for children" as that made them lazy,
and gave them a dislike for work,
The   New  System.
Teach the boys that labor anil Industry, acqulstlon nf property and
love of power are tbe prime factors
that move the world, ami also In the
building up of nations, give them concrete examples of It in their education,
and they will soon have a different
conception of manhood, They will
want, aye will be eager to cultivate
these factors. That was the principle
adopted at Worcester Garden City, of
which   he   was   the   originator,     antl
which had been exceptionally successful. Mr. Floody gave several brief
sketches or the careers of boys associated with tl* Garden City, who had
been reclaimed and made first-class
Pointer for Churches,
lie also pointed out that if the
churches would profit by the excellent
resuflts achieved'by the Garden City
authorities with the boys they would
soon solve the problem of how to fill
the churches and retain their members. The only thing they had to do
was to get away from the old theological dogmas and adapt services to
modern requirements. Hoys were In-
tensly religious, but they soon found
that the teachings of the churches did
not correspond with the practlec of
everyday life: It was all very well
to tell the boys to be meek and to
ofer the other cheek if they were smitten on one; to tell them grace and
strength would be given them to meet
every need. They found out when
they began to think for themselves
that that sort or thing did not go today. Persona traveling alone and attacked by thugs would do their host
to defend themselves. Concluding,
the speaker asked, "Are we going to
give the boys a different kind of
teaching to what we know by practical experience is needed to equip them
for the battle of life?"

Jaures,   Socialist   Leader   In   France,
Cares More for Speeches Than
for  Clothes.
In a recent issue of the Pall Mall
Gazette a writer gives a vivid character sketch of M. Jaures, the celebrated
Socialist leader of France, who today
is the greatest orator of the republic.
M. Jaures, the writer says, is one of
the most remarkable intellects in Europe. It Is quite possible that he has
���lost something of his influence In the
chamber of deputies by reason of Ills
sympathy with Gustavo Herve in the
dayf when this agitator was carrying
on an anti-militarist campaign, and
also, perhaps, because of his attitude
on Three Years. Rut none can dispute
his integrity, bis talent, his amazing
oratorical ability. Jures is no common man.
Destined for the professoriate, he
was a student at the Ecole Normale
Superieure. Then he went to TouloiiBe

to ideas than to persons. But he maintains a vicarious connection with the

All through life we go about
searching for information.
We make a new acquaintance;

We visit a foreign land; and from
the moment we step across its
bolder we are asking questions���
searching for fads.
We are asked to try a new food product; isn't it instinctive
with us to ask at once:
" Who makes this ncw article ?"
" How is it made ? what goes into it >"
" Is it worth the price charged for it ?"
Facts���we are simply hungry for them.
Strange, isn't it, that we should so often have to search for
them r* Odd, that some manufadurers still withhold the fads
about their produd. Not always because they are fads to be
ashamed of���for there are many worthy articles yet unadvertised.
But it will not be so much longer. The fad-hunger of the
human race is becoming keener and keener. The more fads
we get, the keener our relish for more of them.
Soon it will be impossible to sell a man or a woman anything

Hi* has been making political speeches
for nearly fifty years, having been a
Republican leader in Michigan for
many years after the Civil war.
A remarkable feature of the campaign has been the large registration
of women. The total registration is
73,932, an increase of 1 per cent, over
that of 1913, but the increase in lhe
registration of women was 2 per c nt.

Sound  City   Will  Choose  Two  Candidates for Each Vacant Position���
Nine for Mayoralty.
Seattle, Feb, 16,���A primary election will be held In Seattle tomorrow
to choose two candidates for each of
the following city offices:
Mayor, corporation counsel, comptroller and treasurer. Six candidates
for three year terms as councilman
and four candidates for two year
terms will also be selected. The
voters will pick their favorites for
mayor from among nine self-nominated candidates.
These   four   candidates   appear     to
have shown the greatest strength  in
the  campaign  that    closd    tonight:
Hiram  C.  Gill,    attorney,    who    was
elected mayor in    1910,    recalled    in
1911, and    defeated    for   election    in
1912; Austin E. Griffiths, attorney, for
three years member of the city council; James 1). Trenholine, manager of
a  Mexican  Investment  company  and
chairman  of the  Democratic    county
central   committee;    Richard   Winsor,
Socialist,  attorney,  president  of the
Seattle school board. Must of the can
didates  for  mayor,   in   appealing   for
votes, have declared their belief   that
Gill will be one of the nominees and j
that Gill can be beaten only by    the j
speaker.    Oill  is  supported  by  many
persons who opposed him,  three and
two years ago.    Griffiths has the   en
dorsement   of  the   Ministers'   federation, and this endorsement has been
the  chief   weapon     of  his opponents
Many women's organizations are bup
porting   Griffiths.     Trenholme   calls
himself the "business    men's    candi

possibilities of the wild land and the
natural resources which will be available when the country is opened up.
In the vast territory of the coast district there are only some 6,000 inhabitants, mostly of Russian stock. No
reads exist outside of the settlements,
and tbe inhabitants tire mainly engaged In the salmon canning and the
furt trad'*
Ile says the rivers and creeks are
alive with fish, and beautiful specimens of the various kinds of salmon
which fretiii.ni tiie streams are caught
readily, Bear racks radiate from the
streams Into the bush, the animals
coming down to feed on the fish, and
it is tho usual course to obtain tbe
trophies of the chase in this way.
Mr. Denbi fh's nearest shave cam.'
not from the denizens of the bush, but
from a nervous hunt< behind him on
one occasion, who fired when the
speaker was tracking bruin, and Jusl
missed his fri.*nd.
Nol only bear, but sheep, deer,
wolves, l'o\ and Other animals abound,
the wolves being partlcully fierce and
dangerous. The tundras are dangerous to hunt In on account, of their
marshj character, and in summer long
grass sp"lngs up, which grows coarse
and rank, bo that a wounded animal
in Its cover is a dangerous foe,
The salmon industries are Important, and are the mainstay of the country, In fact the pictures which the
hunter brings shows the conditions
almost Identical with the methods
pursued iti the canneries of this province, The restriction of seal hunting
In the Behrlng sea has turned the attention of trappers to sable fur, and
a large quantity of the world's sup-
ply comes from this northern penln
Mr Denbigh came down from Kami
?hatka by way of Hadodate, in tbe
Island of Hokkadlo, and passed
iti rough a considerable portion of the
famine-stricken area In the prefectures of that Japanese island. He
says the conditions ol poverty and
destitution have not been exaggerat-
t il, and the failure of the rice crops
have reduced thousands to a state of
absolute destitution. Government aid

In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been 'swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense tfce full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accord-
i ngly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete .success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcorv service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.
Refuses to Violate Confidence by Giving  Evidence  in  American
Detroit, Peb. 16. -What may result
in a court ruling that will affect newspapermen throughout the country re
ceived its initial Impetus here on Saturday in the court of domestic rela
tions, when Louies Goodnow, "a reporter, refused to give testimony on
the g-ound of privilege.
Mr. Goodnow was called* to testify
| in a divorce action. A year ago he
interviewed both husband and wife in
| connection with a domestic happening and both gave hlrn information
under the promise of confidence.
Goodnow told Judge Lacy that he believed a newspaperman was In the
class of privileged persons that include doctors, lawyers and priests,
whose profession requires the seal of
silence. Dy testifying he held that
he would violate a confidence that
would not have, been given except for
his profession.
Judge Lacy declared he would give
him seven days to show authority for
his stand and to prepare arguments.
If a proper showing could be made
the judge intimated that he would
uphold the newspaperman and thus
establish a precedent yiat will go
far to p-otect the newspapermen in
the future from being forced by the
courts to disclose information received in confidence.

. broken out between the influential
Conservative German Jews and the
Hadical Zionists, because of what the
former characterize as the rabid na-
: tional Jewish chauvinist policy of rule
or ruin, which is developing in the
radical wing of Zionism.
This wing of Zionism recent-'.y started an agressive campaign for its special cause, whereby, according to the
Zionists, they are trying to secure |
control of vaiious non-Zionist Jewish,
organisations in Germany ami wherever they cannot control these societies they are endeavoring to disrupt

It is signed by three hundred leading
German Jews, including Dr. Paul Nathan, the well-known publicist; Dr.
James Simon; Rudc'.ph Mosse, the
newspaper king, and others. These
men are taking a strong stand against
the efforts to create a national Jewish chauvinist movement.

Philadelphia. Feb. 16.���Risking liis
life to perform his duty, Rev. J. J.
Rooney, pastor of the Catholic church
of the Maternity, Bustleton, fought liis
way through smoke and name when
* the edifice caught fire and rescued the
Host antl sacred vessels.
Father Rooney was preparing to
retire shortly before midnight when
he glanced from the rectory, which
adjoins the church, and was horrified
to see the red g"are from flames in
the back of the structure, and smoke
Issuing from the crevices.
Rushing into the church, Father
Rooney was met by a cloud of smoke
which nearly overpowered him. The
priest, however, groped his way-
through until he reached the sanctuary. The flames were already licking
the altar steps and were mounting
��� Although the blaze was dangerously
near and he vvas in danger of being
overcome. Fa-'.her Rooney found the
key to the tabernacle, extracted the
Host and sacred vessels and then fled
with them again through the c-hoking
smoke to the street and safety.
After depositing his precious burden in the recti.ry Father Rooney
sent in an alarm, to which engine
companies from Fox (.'base, Bustleton
and Holmesburg responded.

!    Spokane. Feb. 16.���Charles Witty, ati
employee of the Model bakery, yester-
iday filed an answer to his wife's suit
I for divorce,  in which  he states  that.
| she is 17 years older than he and that
��� she  used   to chastise htm    with    the
broomstick   and   her   fists   and   treat
him brutally when angry.
I    He asserts for for 26 years prior ta
,1913 they lived amicably together, except for outbreaks of temper on the*
oart  of  the   wife,   which  came   from
trivial and often "imaginary" causes.
On one ocacslon, while he vvas quietly   reading,  he  says,   she  threatened
to poison him.    He is 45 and she 62.
Mrs. Elisabeth Gebha-rdt charges
tha; Fred (iebhardt married her after
being divorced sooner than tbe lavv
permits, In Montana, where the ceremony took place, and asks that the
marriage be annulled. She further
states that she has been deserted
since 1911.
Mrs. Amalie W. Floan charges Olaf
S. Floan with using vile and humiliating language in the presence of her
children and guests. She alleges non-
support and asks the custody of her
two children on the ground that her
lUsband is a low, vfllgar person, unit to be entrusted with their care.
Stating that her husband, Walter
Nelson, has failed to support her and
a six year old son since March, 1911,
although capable of earning $19 a

Charging   that     Ernest     Whitman

and left the house when he requested
her to minister to Mb wants. John
Shelburu yesterday filed a reply to
his wife's suit for divorce. He denies
that he threatened to attack her with
a butcher knife last December.
Since 1892 Mrs. Carrie Wilson alleges that her husband, William Cil-
son, has intermittently abused and
refused to support her and their child.
She says that she came to Spokane In

Conditions of Mexicans in
Prison Camp at Fort Bliss
K, Paso, Texas, Feb, IS.   Hundreds
Of -visitors went on Sunday to Fort
Blir-s to view the prison camp where
General Hugh L. Scott is caring for
more than 5000 Mexican men, women
ar.d children, who fled after the federals were defeated at Ojinaga a
month ago.
Meanwhile General Jose* Inez Salazar. prisoner extraordinary, was uneasy and sulked within his tent. Gen
<eral Scott has him confined in a
special barbed wire stockade away
from the other prisoners, and recently informed liiin"that if an attempt
was made to rescue him he would
order the first person shot.
Salazar sent word to General Scott
that he feared the rebels at Juarez
would take advantage of the order
and make a false- demonstration from
the railroad tracks nearby, probably-
firing a few shots in the air, aud before the ruse was discovered the
guard would have carried out the instructions with reference to himself.
"1 have no more desire to escape
than a ten year old boy," was the
message Salazar sent. General Scott
said he might enter the post guard
house if he wished. There he would
be* in a cell, but perfectly safe and
the Mexican may try the experiment
for a week.
Record of Prisoners.
Captain Ohestes, adjutant of the
Twenty-fifth infantry, which is in
charge of the prison camp, has a card
index system to keep track of the
prisoners and their own leaders know
more about them now than they ever
did in the field. These cards bear the
name, home town, rank and age of
the prisoners and the number of
women and children accredited to
him. Emiliano Vasquez, for instance,
is 26 years old, and with him are one
woman and two children.
In the camp there are 53 wounded
federal officers and 187 wounded men,
and 218 federals officers and 3180 nun
who are physically fit. There are 125,*
women and 556 children. Of the children 400 nre of school age, and as
soon as possible General Scott will Inaugurate a school at which some of
tin educated officers who are confined
there* will be the instructors.
Cases of Small Pox.
There are lour cases of small pox
and this had delayed the school
pt ricd. Three babies -were born last
week three the week before and
more are expected.
The prisoners live in tents, brown,
like lhe whole verdureless landscape.
It costs IS cents, gold, per day to
feed each prisoner or about $900 for
the camp, while the cost of subsistence for an American soldier is 23%
cents. Tho prison rations consist of
Mexican* beans, chili peppers, ccrn
meal, potatoes, onions, bread, fresh
meat and coffee. A guard detected today one of the prisoners giving away
some of his coffee to a more needy
fellow countryman on the: outside.
Housed and Fed.
Most of them arc far better off
than they were when in the field.
They nre housed and fed regularly,
nnd by dint of much urging the
Americans have trained them to polic��
their camp and take .tsropor sanitary
precautions. The prison is of aboul
4:1 acres, surrounded by a barbed wire
fence, The centries do not enter the
camp except for special purpose, but
patrol it on the outside.
Visitors arc kept at a distance* from

United    States    Starts    Investigation
With   This  Commendable   End
in View.
Washington, Feb. 16.���To find work
for the unemployed in the nation's
largest cities and Industrial centres,
the federal committee of industrial
relations has inaugurated an Investigation to extend from Boston to Kansas City. Attention first will be given
to public and private employment
agencies, to bring out to what extent
the trouble is due to their lack of organization and inefficiency. Four investigators have been assigned to undertake this task and report within
six weeks.
The committee, it was said, regards
the employment problem as a permanent, one, because the present conditions in the labor fields virtually are
the same as exist every year at this
season and it is proposed therefore to
gather material for the preparation of
legislation by congress to establish a
federal employment bureau to serve as
a clearing house for public and private agencies, and to direct the movement of migratory workers.
Stories of suffering, particularly in
New York city, where 350,000 men and
women, many of them with children
dependent upon them, are reported out
of employment, stirred the commission to action.
"Hundreds of thousands of men anxious to work, are either out of employment or without assurance that
their jobs win continue another week
or another day," Chairman Frank I'.
Walsh said. "Poorly nourished and
thinly clad these men assemble each
morning for inspection and then may
drift away to the cheap saloons or the
cheap lodging houses to wait for another chance.
"No one can see this spectacle
without realizing that here is something that society cannot afford to
tolerate. An employer never thinks
of laying off his bookkeeper or eilerk
after employing his three or four hours
in �� day or three or four days in a
week. The problem of continuous employment for laborers must be solved
if we are to check the increase in out-
great army of homeless men. If
nothing else wil! avail it may be* necessary to urge employment insurance.
"Federal control of employment
agencies doing an interstate business
is urged upon Ihe commission by E.
VV. Carter, manager of the National
Employment exchange in New York.
This bureau was organized by some
of the largest employers of labor in
the metropolis to serve as a model
antl the assertion is made that the
evils from which migratory workers
suffer at the hands of other agencies
have been eliminated in its operation."
Casual employment, the great cause
for the demand for breadlines, wiil be
attacked .by the commission and cooperation in Hie effort to eliminate
this evil will be urged upon all employers.
Hamilton, Bermuda, Feb. 16.���The
chief topic of conversation here now
is tin* question whether the Canada
Steamships Line, Limited, will succeed in obtaining from the legislature
of Bermuda a subsidy in return for
improved steamship communication
with  New  York.
The debate has been expected in
the house cf assembly, and all seats
reserved for the public were occupied.
The outcome of the proposal is uncertain.
Prominent Anglican  Cleric  Publishes
Volume of Present Day Interest..
Sscare  Has Not Alarmed  McGill  Students���Fifteen  Cases  in  One
Montreal, Feb. 10.���-In view of the
I excitement which has been aroused
| by the charge of heresy laid by the
Bishop of Zanzibar againBt the two
brother missionary bishops of Mom-
bassa and Uganda, the publication of
six sermons by Canon Plumptre, rector of St. James cathedral, Toronto, is
opportune. The sermons are entitled
"Schools of Thought in the Church, of
He  first describes  the  teaching of
each  of the three historic schools of
thought in the church, and then considers   their  strength   and   weakness.
"Canon Plumptre may perhaps best
be  described  as a   broad  Churchman,
| but  he  is  eminently  fair  and  impar-
' tial,"   saiel   a   well   known   clergyman
I this morning.    "Thus, he says of the
i high   church   party,   that   it   upholds
��� the dignity and authority of the church
as the* organized society for carrying
! on  the  work of Christ  in  the world.
j On the other hand, he points out that
I the   high   church   conception   of  the
church   is  too  narrow  and  too  tradi-
i tional.    In theory it is excellent. But
, when   brought  to  tht*  test  of  fact  it
' completely breaks down.    Yet It has
' made   permanent  contribution  to the
strength   of   Anglicanism   by   its   re-
I covery of the. idea of common worship
] by the  restoration  of art and  music
[ to their proper function, as the allies
| antl not the enemies of religion, and
I in its emphasis upon holiness.
"Evangelicaism finds a syn pathetic
j exponent In Canon Plumptre. If it
| has fallen on somewhat evi! days in
j the present, it has a grand record in
the past, in its zeal for the outcast.
| in its clear presentation of Christ,
I in Its struggle against a victory over
| slavery and in its championship of the
j child. But Canon Plumptre finds the
��� Evangetlcals weak in their doctrine
| of God, and in their lack of sympathy
I with  modern thought.
"The distinguishing features of the
I broad    c'.iurohman    Canon    Plumptre
i finds to be their truth and liberty lov-
| ing spirit, their  willingness to foster
j friendly  relations   with   other  Christ-
I Ian   churches;   their   love   of   siniplic-
i Ity  of  creed  as  opposed   to  a   rigid
dogmatism    and    their  valuable  services  in the ministration of theology
with modern thought.
"On   the  other    hand     the    broad
I churchman  is tempted  to intellectual
shallowness and a lack of moral earnestness."
These sermons are well worthy of
perusal ami more particularly if anyone desires to follow with intelligence
the controversies of the day which are
fraught with great, possibility of good
or of evil to the entire Anglican
