If thc housewives of this city saw the conditions under which arc grown the vegetables they use daily in their
kitchens they would swear off vegetable eating till the
business was in other hands than those of our old friend
from down Canton way, Slant-eyed John.
To put it euphemistically, John's methods and habits
in connection with his vocation of providing vegetables
for the people of New Westminster are not sanitary.
That's sotting forth the case in very mild terms, for to
tell the truth about the matter would use up too much
questionable language. As a factor in this age of cleanliness, the Celestial grower and purveyor of vegetables does
not have a part, at least not so long as he pursues the
methods that have characterized him for several moons
hack, and the time has come when people who want clean
things to eat should take a stand for them.
It doesn't look like an easy proposition to supplant
the Chinaman and clear a little of the filth out of our home
cooking, but it might be done by a combination of white
truck gardeners and there should be money in it for them.
If the white growers would get together, put their products all in the hands of a central agency and distribute
them from door to door as the Chinese do, at the same
time working a White Vegetable campaign for all they
are worth, it is almost a safe bet the insanitary Chink
would go by the boards for good and all.
A Swede carpenter travelling steerage on a boat from
Seattle to San Francisco jumped overboard and was lost
on the trip. It hasn't yet been decided whether the accommodations of the ship's steerage, or the prospect of
reaching the Golden Gate was the most important factor
in inducing him to take to suicide.
A commission is to be appointed by the federal government to look into this monster, the hykostuvlivin. Hope
they decide to exterminate the species.

this church, which waB opened In 181S.

Victoria, Dec. 1. On account of th"
mat-'B of work involved In the hearing
Of the Victoria Sealing company's
elalniB, when the Healing commission
resumed In Victoria today, a second
Conned has been engager] to assist F
J. Curran, of Montreal. In the presenl-
atlon of the claim, W. J. Taylor, K.
C., of this city, having accepted the
invitation to join lhe legal gentlemen
engaged In the case.
The Intention Ib to take the Victoria
Sealing company's case from .Monday, December 1, to December 9. and
then proceed witli the claims of the
Indians This will carry the commission to the second week of January,
and later the commlBBlon goes eaat
to Sidney, Cape Breton, to take evidence In May on the claims of sealers
there. In July and August lt will be
hack In Victoria hearing evidence of
the white men who have not yet had
nn opoprtunlty of laying their case before the commissioner.
Mr.  Curran   said   that  the   Victoria
Sealing company's claim would bring
out every phase of the industry, the
legislation affecting the sealing Industry,  British,  American, Japanese and
ItUBBian,   and   every   detail   affecting
its operation, so that it  would  be a
test caBe In many respects.    Mr. Justice   Audette.   he  explained,   had   not
limited the Investigation to any fixed
amounts,   and   the   award   would   be
made according to equity. The amount
j involved   In   this  aggregate  claim  af-
! fectlng   43   vessels,   will   have   to   be
igone into Individually.
Speaking of the Inquiry at Halifax
lhe mentioned that the court went into
16 claims, but did not conclude taking
j evidence in  Nova Scotia because the
'premier, Hon. 0, li. Murray, and Hon.
!a. K.  Maclean represented the deslr-
; ability of hearing evidence at Sidney,
! from  Cape    Breton    operators.    The
judge would have sat Immediately on
the conclusion of the week'B session in
Halifax  in  September, but  the statements or claims were not ready, so he
promised to go down In the spring to
the maritime provinces again.
In the Nova Scotian claims are a
number of cases where men Bealed in
the South Seas, and also set out with
the intention of reachingf the north
Pacific, but never weathered Cape
Horn, so that the legal point arose
whether the commissioner could consider the possibility of awarding com-
pensatien for an act which did not materialize. The claimants in Cape Breton had been given till January 1 to
file iheir claims.

It is a very natural and right principle that those who
by their position in life command the respect of others
should deserve it and be worthy of maintaining their
position.    "Much is expected of those in high station."
But this principle U not confined to persons of noble birth
���it hss a hundred applies-
tions. It applies, for example,
to those manufacturers of
reputation and prestige who
make goods of high quality
and who advertise them constantly in the newspapers of
the land.
By their advertising they have
attained an eminence where
the very best in quality and
good service is expected of
them. They have set a stand*
ard and their very business
life depends on the constant
maintenance of it.
So that when you buy aaVer-
Used articles you rest assured
that you are getting the best
value that money can buy.
Well may you place your fMtb
in advertised goods. Well
may you give them prefer*
ence over articles which you
can only hope may prove
For the principle of "Noblesse Oblige" is
your guarantee of excellence in Advertised Goods.

who is a guest in the city, accompanied by bis son-in-law, Dr. J. Glen Allan, late of New York, but now residing ln Shelbourne county. Nova
Scotia. The Hon. Mr. Macherson was
mayor of Halifax for three years, and
hasalso sat for many years in the provincial legislature.
"It is certainly a fact." continued
he, "that the Gloucester. Mass., fishermen are having a hard time of It this
year, and they are moving about en
masse back to Nova Scotia. The Gloucester people are at their wits' end,
because the g-eat majority of their
fishermen and skippers are Nova Sco-
tians. and they are moving out of the
American ports in large numbers, so
that they are in a serioues way for
men to run their fisheries." Mr. Macpherson said- that the salt cod was so
high in price here in Canada that there
was no need of shipping it out of the !
country. This product is now T-ring-
ing seven dollars a quintal.
Dr. Allan stated that thc run of
fresh mackerel along the Nova Scotia
coast had been a source of great profit to the wove Scotia fishermen. One
gisherinan clone at St. Margaret's bay,
is credited with making ten thousand
dollars during the rece��t run, and a
like clean-up is reported all along the
coast, both east and west.

British  Company  Designs Ships Boat
That   Meets  All   Official
ijoiulon. Dec. 1,���Almost coincident
wilh the international conference on
safety at Bea comes the introduction
of a ship's lifeboat of British make
which is Btuteil to outclass In seaworthiness anything which has yet
been submitted to official trials.
The Berthon lioat company of Horn-
sey, have had an extended experience
In the construction of light craft of
the safety order. Their workmanship
has always Bhowns high standard of
excellence. It is only to be expected,
therefore, that in their construction
of .1 lifeboat on the basis of the
board of trade requirements they
should have combined material
strength and finish such as would secure for the boat a long life in normal
service and ability to withstand exceptionally rough usage.
The new lifeboat, which is stated to
have given the greatest satisfaction to
tbe board of trade Inspectors) is computed to have a life of from 15 to 20
years. Sho has a camber deck,, ten
water tieht compartments, double deck
planking and is fitted with eight valves
similar to those used In lhe national
lifeboats, so that in the event of a considerable quantity of water breaking
on board is will he cleared off in half
a minuto or less.
The stability of the boat is stated
to be most satisfactory, she is a great
weight-carrier, and will take down
from upper deck of liners to sea surface a full complement of 55 adults, all
of them seated. The lines of the boat
are considered very fine, and she Is so
highly finished that her appearance,
with her mahogany bulwarks, is more
..that cf a yacht than of such n largo-
bodied l-~"*. TieM are upper bulwarks
of canvas to raise when necessary,
which can be done in two seconds, and
when these are up the passengers are
so well protected that they can hardly be seen. In ordinary weather, the
passengers can he carried without canvas, because of the 9-inch fixed mahogany bulwark.
The builders of this boat were specially hit under the new board of trade
rules, ria they were the original tmlid-
lapsitice, *.- :.���:i wert sir^.k oul under the rules referred to, It must
therefore, be a gnat satisfaction to
them to lirin? out one of the first, if
not the very first, boat to meet all r,,..
board of trade requirements, and to
have gone even beyond the standard

Victoria, Dec. 1���The gale that blew
1 with   such   violence  off  the  coast  of
1 Hritish  Columbia  on    Friday   caused
considerable damage to the small craft
j anchored   off  Sidney  and   In  tho  ad-
j joining islands.   The wharf on Sidney
' Island   w-as   completely   destroyed   by
the violence of the wind and  ronsltl-
i erable damage was done tot he landing on James island, the property of
the Canadian Explosives company.
';     Owing to the falling of a tree across
lhe litiH ofthe Victoria & Sidney rail-
jv.ay, the train from  Victoria was un-
, able to reach Sidney Friday night and
I passengers   were   compelled   to   walk
the remaind-e'' of lhe distance.    The
tree wns quickly removed by the railroad  gang,  but  this   morning  it  was
' found that a large part of the track in
th'- neighborhood of Sidney had been
i unshed away and trains arriving from
Victoria were compelled to disembark
;t'.:"ir passengers at  the shingle  mill
Until the damage had been repaired.
Old residents of the Islands district
said that no such storm had been ex-
i perienced   since   the   famous  gale  of
1908.     An enormous quantity of drlft-
1 wood and a large number of logs that
had evidently broken away from their

the inlands and the mainland exceed-

has brought about a critical state of
affairs and one which wlll be given
every possible consideration by the
provincial government lu order to protect the Interests of the province, In
so far as the government's constitutional authority will permit," declared
Premier McBrlde today ln discussing
the turn of affairs in the Hindu Immigration question, following the issuance of Chief Justice Hunter's written Judgment
The decision reached by the chief
justice was in respect to 35 of the
Hindus detained by the immigration
authorities after their arrival on the
Panama Maru. Those who read the
written judgment Incline to the opinion that so far as the present situation goes the bare have been let down
and the Hindus may enter practically
unquestioned, ence they have satisfied the ordinary requirements for Intending Immigrants.
"We have always tried to make it
clear that the objections which the
government of thie province entertains toward the entry of Hindus are
not upon race grounds, but are of an
economic nature," said Sir Richard.
The premier Intimated that he did
not desite to express any opinions on
the judgment Itself, but he added that
he believed the question would probably occupy the attention of the courts
for some time. He waa asked In -what
form the representations which tbe
British Columbia government Is expected to make to Ottawa upon the
subject would take. He was further
requested to give aome idea aa to
whether tbe matter would be taken to

In receiving the freedom of Newcastle. Sir Edward Qrey made an
interesting speech on the control of
foreign affairs, and also made .i passing reference to tha ltaikan situation.
Hi, said:
The object we pursued In common
wtth the other greal. powers was to
prevent the Balkan war from spreading, None of us could prevent It oe-
eur.-lng, but we could prevent It, anil
we did prevent it. from spreading,
Tbere Is plenty of trouble in the foreign offices of Europe - trouble In
working out the details of the settlement, and the resolution come o during the year, but 1 think I may say that
the foreign offices of Europe at the
present moment are consuming their
own smoke; that is to say, the trouble
is not being the cause of Immediate
preoccupation to either tholr naval or
military departments, nor the cause of
pressing anxiety or apprehension to
the various nations.
The opposition have with real patri
otism refrained from making at any
moment party capital out of foreign
politics. At critical moments the opposition have given support in a generous and effective degree.
Foreign policy does not lend itself
to great and Startling successes and
achievements. If ever there Is a big
diplomatic success you may be sure
that a price has to be paid for It.
If it is not paid at the time ii generally has to bo later on. nnd the
more it is talked about and boasted
about, the higher the price which le
likely in the long run to be paid.
There is another reason why foreign
policy does not lend Itself to striking achievement.., and that is that in
greatest  service  that  yon. can  render
to commerce is the maintenance   of
peace, and  the kei ping of this coun

decidedly and no less strenuously as
far as he had time and opportunity,

Referring to the mayors' reference
to his very first public political speech
made from the platform. Sir Edward
caused amusement by remarking thnt
lhat speech was received more rapturously than any speech he had delivered since. The mayor had attributed that to the merits of the speech.
In a sense It mlgiht have been, hut he
thought it was also due to the compassion of the audience at the youth
of the speaker. Following a later
speech a Conservative opponent called
him a pinafore baronet.

Huerta  that  he  has  no desire  to  be;
president, if it i.s lhe wish of the people that he sbould not be.
"After the death of Madero. which
was a shocking affair. Bccordlng to
our ethical standards, Huerta was
chosen president, and on thai occasion he promised to dlreci the destinies ef the country until such altno
as a president who was really the
choice of the people could be elected
in the proper manner. Having made
tiiat promise he wlll stick to it to the |

evade the fact that there is great
hatred, not only In Mexico, but In all ���

Preparing   Meal���Family
Spokane, Dei 1 Doing Into the
basement ol her home at s_i. Coeur
d'Alene street to call her husband to
blB dinner, Mrs W. M. Shaffer found
hla body lying on the floor with a
bullet hole through his bead. The wife
called her brother, Or. I.. I.. Qarrlguee,
as osteopath, who was to take dinner
v. ith them, and then swooned.
'Iii" police, after an Investigation, in
which tbey worked on the eaaa until
nearl? midnight, announced that It
was undoubtedly suicide. Family trou-
bles aro given as the cauae for Shaffer's not.
Bul one shot entered the body, althougb ail six chambers of the revolver hail  been discharged.    The  bullet
entered the right temple, going Into
the center of the brain, death resulting
instantly. Shortly before ',' o'clock
Shaffer went Into the basement to
split some wood, and that was the last
si en of hlm alive. Both Or. Carrigues
and Mrs. Shaffer, although they were
directly over t'.ie place where the shol
was fired, beard no report.
According to the report given out by

Victoria. Dee. 1.- If the policy of the
department of Indian affairs, as disclosed In instructions received from
Ottawa by the superintendent of Indian agencies In British Columbia, Is
successfully enforced the "potlatch,"
which Is the most treasured ol the natives' traditional feasts, will be a
thing of the past before long. Orders
l have been Issued tiiat theBe gather-
, ings. that Is. the functions the principal feature of which is the giving
j and receiving of presents. muBt be
] discontinued forthwith. Already the
I first step In this direction has been
! taken and tbe matter, it is expected,
i will be ventilated in the courts of Van-
j couvtr at an early date.
Having been notified of the department's wishes, Indian Agent Halliday,
of Alert Bay, ln whose district are the
jKaawkekith  Indians, took  the neces-
! sary steps to apprize his wards of the
'situation.    They   were  told,  lt  Is  au-,
thcritatively  reported,  that  the  "pot-
' latch" must be abandoned.    However,
i the  season  for  EUch  affairs  was    at
i hand, and the Indians could not resist
the temptation.    The usual    arrange-
! ments were made, and soon the tribe
intr thit; vpnr tn sp^hto vmir was engaged in one of their long drawn
ing miS J ear tO Secure }OUr,)U[ o,,Mlr-tiii,nS. at which the presentation of gifts by one or more of their
number  was  an  outstanding  feature.
As  a  result,  Indian  Agent    Halliday
swore out informations, under section
149 of the Indian  act. which  specifically  makes  participation ln 6uch  an
event an indictable offence, and two of
the leaders were placed under arrest.
Their prosecution is to take place ln
Vancouver, to  which city they  have
been removed.    It is understood that
several  of their  tribesmen  have  followed and that their purpose is to engage counsel and  fight the    cahrge.
l'robably   the   ground   taken   will   be
i based on the plea that what is being
done  is an  unwarranted  interference
with the rights of the subject.
In Indiana' Interests.
\V.   B,   Ditchburn.   inspector  of   Indian   agencies,   explains  lhat  the  departments policy with respect to the
time-honored  potlatch  ls  ln  the  best
interests of the Indians of British Columbia   for  a   number  of   important

the special achools for Indians, which
have been established at all centres
and are being largely attended by the
youpnger generations, have turned out
young women and women of a different turn of mind from their parents���
men and women whose minds have
been cultured and who would prefer
to cast behind tbem the objectionable
elements of the festivals that have
become a part of the life of their progenitors. But when they leave school
they go back to tbeir homes and immediately are swept off their feet by
the traditional customs that have
grown out of years. The result is
that a great part of tbe effect of the
work of the institutions referred to

For theae reasons, and especially for
the latter. Mr. Ditchburn Is ecunrtneed

of the Indian act in question.
