If lhe members of the harbor committee of the city council nt-ede^d i��ny
stimulant to encourage them in their
efforts 'o carry out the harbor improvements they received that stimulant yesterday when at a meeting with
���he holders of the waterfront leases���
nn n whose businesses were most
vitally affected by the improvements
���the scheme was endorsed and tho
committee told to go ahead with the
piling: work, these business men also
offi ring to do all in their power to
facilitate   the  work  of the  council.
At the meeting with the harbor
committee were G. Cassady, of the
Columbia Cold Storage company; W.
J. Mathers, of Brackman-Kor Milling
company, and Jos. Mayers, coal merchant.
In connection with the Cc-lumbia
Cold Storage company notice would
have to be given before piling operations could commence in front of its
water lots, but Mr. Cassady promised
to confer with General Manager Barker of the B. C. Packers association,
nnd It is expected that Mr. Cassady's
arrangement with the committee so
that piling operations can be gone on
with, will be confirmed.
Piling operations will not be started

is the  best time of the year to  proceed with  the piling as the water in

Alderman Annandale further points
out that no  further difficulty is    expected as all the business men whose
holdings     are    affected     are     most
i anxious to see the scheme carried out
and were only waiting to be approach-

operations   will   be    carried    out    in
; such a way as to cause as little    in

as possible, while the matter of compensation   to   those   firms   entitled   to

Opposition to 13. C.
A long legal argument arose over
the bill to increase Manitoba's representation ui the senate by two. The
opposition contended that neither in
Ube case ot Manitoba nor British Col
ut, ii.i. has iii" government power to
add to the number of members In the
upper house without first amending
the British 'North America act The
government contended to the contrary
and the matter will be tha subject of
morn discussion later on. The resolution relating to the Increases of representation for Manitoba, Saskatchewan .ind Alberta, were passed, and the
bills  based   thereon   Introduced  and
read a first time.
Bounty on Ores.
Mr. Carriek on the motion to go
Into supuply, brought forward his proposal In itfiTi nee to a bounty on ores
which had previously been laid before the government by a deputation
representing the associated boards of
trade Of Ontario. He said that the
Iron and steel industry was in a languishing condition and that it. could be
revived by the giving of a bounty of
Jl per ton in "11 iron ore mined and
smelted In Canada.
Also Opposed.
The proposal was strongly opposed
by Ur. Michael Clark, Who contended
that nfter *IC yearn ol effort, the attempt to build up industries by protection hud failed. He suggested the
building up oi the fanning Industry
is the proper national policy. With
agriculture on a proper bns'.s both in
regard to the production and markets
all oilier lines of business would be
equally healthy.
Si", i pal members favored more spe-

minister of finance ln dealing with the
matter, however, refrained from making any definite promises. He said

would be given serious consideration,

By stopping the Scotch express, on
which Mrs. Pankhurst was brought

city last night, and compelling the
militant leader to alight at a small

swarms of militant suffragettes who

"Oh, East is East and West is West and never the
twain shall meet," wrote Kipling in his Ballad of East and
West and he must have been right, but not exactly in the
way he imagined. The Anglo-Indian poet considered the
east too deeply steeped in its orientalism ever to conform
to the ideals and standards of the Occident and it is certain
that he never for a moment thought the people of Asia
would be setting a high water mark of civilization for the
Caucasians to look up to.
However that may be, two recent dispatches from two
national capitals, Berlin and Tokio, reveal an astonishing
comparison. The first, from the seat of German government, tells of a bill in preparation to authorize the appropriation of one hundred and twenty-five millions of dollars for the re-arming of the German artillery. The second dispatch from the foot of the throne reports a thirty-
one million dollar reduction in that country's naval esti-
The first of these represents the result of the deliberations of the parliamentary representatives of a supposedly Christian people and the second the voice of a nation called heathen.
Conditions in Germany and Japan today are singularly alike. In both countries there is being felt the pinch
of hard times and both countries worship the fetish of
militarism, yet the peculiar situation develops of a so-
called heathen people placing the demands of humanity
before the dictates of national pride, while the nation that
produced Luther turns its back on the "Thou shalt not
kill" of the decalogue and adds another enormous load to
the already staggering war burden being carried by its
poverty-stricken people.
Back in the dark ages war was the only court of appeal in the case of international differences. The march
of civilization has developed the arbitration system, but
it has laid on the nations a heavier burden than ever
sprung from the wars of the days gone by, the burden
of everlasting military preparedness. Japan estimated
her share of that load at a certain figure, but, influenced
by consideration for her starving people, she has repudiated the obligation and thirty-one millions will be saved
from the waste on guns and ships to help her men, women
and children tide over a time of national poverty. Germany estimated her portion of the war efficiency cost,
and, in spite of the thousands within her borders who are
Jean and hungry, she has not only appropriated every cent
called for, but is considering a further expenditure of one
hundred and twenty-five millions.

A Greater Career.

home secretary and as chancellor of

For Housekeepers
NUMEROUS corps of operatives from
an Alum Baking- Powder manufacturer are calling from house to house
in many sections, making so-called
foaming demonstrations of the raising power
of their baking powder. The demonstrations
have been denounced by the Pure Food
Commissioners of a number of States as
misleading, fraudulent and deceitful, the
effect being produced by the addition of albumen to their baking powder to make it
foam. The U. S. Government has interfered
toward their prohibition.
These demonstrators avoid any reference to the
fact that their baking powder is made of alum. In most
States it is required that all baking powders sold shall
be plainly labeled to show their ingredients, and the
term "Alum" or "Sulphate of Alumina" on the label
should be a sufficient notice of the true character of
such products.
It is not supposed that any one would knowingly
use an alum powder in the preparation of food.

ARD TIMES! A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every
year in publicity has established a
significant rule. Whenever he notices a slowing up of business he increases
his advertising. This is the reason: "When
business is booming it is unnecessary to
fight for it���it comes of itself; but when
business is slow I insist on having my share
of it, and the easiest way to get it is by calling attention to my goods. I do not wait for
hard times. I scent them in the distance,
and before anybody else gets busy I make
my contracts for advertising on a big scale
and get my orders in before my competitors
know what I am doing." The logic and common sense of the attitude of this gentleman
account in large part for the remarkable
success he has achieved

District Registrar,
Have you ever noted how an audience
yawns in the face of an uninspired speaker?
On the other hand, have you noted how an audience
will lean forward and grasp the chair arms when
the speaker reveals enthusiasm ?
Enthusiasm is the buoyant expression of truth. To
impart belief in anything, a man must believe it
deeply himself.    We call such a man an enthusiast.
This applies to the written word also ��� particularly
to advertisements. When the manufacturer really
believes in his wares, his enthusiasm will almost
inevitably find expression in Advertising. And enthusiasm will be contagious��� his audience��� the
readers of the newspaper���will, figuratively speaking,
"lean forward and listen intently."
To be convincing an advertisement
must convey an unmistakable
impression of enthusiasm. This it
will only do when the article
advertised has inherent worth.
Thus we have:
Sincerity --Enthusiasm-- Advertising:
Three   mighty  forces,   close-linked.
// you are doint a heal business talk over your adverthisg problems with the Advertising Department
 ���y ,!,(, ���eWspaper.     1] If you are Joint a provincial or national bushttSS it would be welt fer
you to have the counsel a.ni assistance of a good advertising acru-v.     A list of these
will be furnished,  without cost or obligation,  hy the Secretary of Canadian
Press Association,  Room ,'0J,  I.umsdci liuildini;,   Toronto.

The  next  meeting  will   be  held  on
Monday, March  23, at St. Stephen's.
The special assizes Jolted to a tad-
den brief halt yesterday nioruiiie;
when eounsi'l for the defence iu the
Tony Clerello case asked for and se-
oured an adjournment on thn ground
that the crown showed symptom* of
putting iu evidence on matters which
were not brought to the notice of the
defence before the case opened.
Counsel for the defence claimed to
be handicapped by the course adopt
ed by the> prosecution and to allow the
prisoner every chance his lord��hi|>

Night Shopping.
As one means of bringing about a
better observance of the Sabbath the
w. C. T. r. Initiated a movement to
discourage late Saturday night shopping at a meeting held yesterday at
St. Stephen's church, A motion placing bhe organization on record as be
ing opposed to late shopping was carried unanimously and arrangements
were made to interest the local council Of women and other societies in
the subject.
The reason the action was taken was
because of the oft repeated complaints
of young people that they were unable to attend church Sunday morning because they wi re compelled to
remain at the store until n late hour
the previous e*vc ning and wished to
rest. 'I in* W, C, T. 1'. will not ask the
storekeepers to close early but will
try to discourage ail shoppers from
leaving their shopping over until thi*
last minute on Saturday evening. If
they can discourage late shopping suf-

Almost Total  Eclipse Will Be Visible
About 10 O'clock This Evening
���Astronomers Busy.
Washington, March 10.- There will
be an eclipse1 of the moon, almost total, tomorrow night, visible from all
points in western Europe, North und
South   America  and   Western   Africa.
Astronomers at tint naval observatory prepared tonight to take ad van
tags of the opportunity for observations during the eclipse, for while the
moon is darkened, unusually accurate'
work may be accomplished. It was
pointed out that fainter stars than are
normally observed for purposes of occupation observations are more easily
seen during; an eclipse and that they
are of gre*at Importance in correcting
the lunar tables. The shadow oi' tbe
earth will not entirely cover the moon
but at the middle of the eclipse more
than five-tenths of tho moon's diameter will be in the shadow.
The moon is due to enter tho shadow, according to precise reckoning al
8:41 tomorrow night, eastern standard
time, should reach the middle of tbe
eclipse at 11:12 and leave the shadow

that it  was lo remain there until one *

somewhat unusual procedure was that
.Mrs. Gibson desieed to make her son j
a  present of the money at the time
and he did not care to accept it then.1
The crown contended that consequently   the   $20,000   formed   part   of   the \
: estate    of the deceased lady,  as she :
| had  not  made  an  absolute  gift  of  it ;

Recent   dispatches,   says   the   Mail
and  Empire, Toronto, announced  the
death   of   Cardinal   Kopp.     the   close
friend   of   the   kaiser,   and   the   only
German   cardinal.     The     Bishop     of
Breaslau was the forty-sixth cardinal
to die In the regime of Pope Pius X.,
and the number is probably unprece-
. dented, although since it is only when
, a   man   has   readied   advanced   years
j Ihat he is given  the*  red hat, a very
i high  mortality among cardinals is to
| be expected. However .the death rate
under  Pius has been  unusually great
iand recalls the prophecy made by St. J
Malachy to the effect that, the motto
Iof the successor of Pius X.    will    be
"Religio depopulata."    There can  be
| no doubt that if t'.ie present death rate
is continued for any considerable number of years the phrase "depopulated
religion"  will  apply   with   some force
to tbe cardlnalate.    Some time   ago,
j however,   it   was   reported   that   the
polntlff   would   hold   ;i   consistory   in
the iitar future, probably before Easter,  and   that  several   new   cardinals
would then be created.
Only 5* Cardinals.
At present there an* onlj  "il  mem-!

being Italians.   The foreign cardinals
ire divided as follows:    Six  French,
tivc*   Austrian,    four    Spanish,    four!
Americans,   including   Pali mlo,    iwoi
Portuguese, one Dutch, one Irish, one;
English, one Belgian, and one Brazilian.   There is neither any fixed num-i
��� Iji��� r of cardinals, nor is there any law
concerning their    nationality, though
.efforts   have   been   in#le   at   various
, times to limit the membership of any
! given   race.     The   Councils   of   Con-
| stance  and   Basle   provided   that  not
more than one-third of the cardinals
should he of the same nationality, but
the Council of Trent removed this restriction, being more concerned  that

Historic Medical Museum. I
An Historical Medical Museum, officially connected with ihe forthcoming International Medic 1 Congress,
has been organized in London.
All epochs and most countries are*
represented in the series of exhibits*
which illustrate not only the iae.ii",-
stream of medical culture and learning from the sages of antiquity--
Hippocraes, Galen, Avicenna and th***
rest���but also the curious and often
weird medical customs and beliefs of
half-civilized tribes. Paintings of the
great masters of medical art, relics
of ''amous surgeons, masks, fetishes
and charms of medicine men from
savage lands, Babylonia and Egyptian*
sculptures, and the most up-to-date
results of pathological investigation.-
are exhibited. There are tbe reproductions in pictures and actual 3cenes
of the apothecaries' shops from Roman times down to the eighteenth
century, and the quaint illustrations
of hospital work in the middle ages.
The collection will form the nucleus
of a permanent Historical Medical
Museum In London. '

May Be a Reality.
This college of nature is not a joke
and  nol  wholly ;i dream.    It is speci-
tically  proposeel  by Joseph   Knowles.;
of Boston, artist  and  master naturer.
Men   who have  the  means  to realize'
the plan are seriously considering it
and Knowles has designated the Lake
Superior shore district   cf Minnesota*
as a suitable place for the institution.
Knowles Is the man who went into
the Maine woods last August without
a stitch of clothing or any article or l
implement of any kind whatever and j
lived  for two  full  months.     He came j
out  clothed   in   bear and  deer skins.!
armed   with   bow   and   arrows,   shod
with raw hide and a stronger, health;)
ier man than when he went in.
Forest   Life   Beneficial.
Small, Maynard and company have i
DOW  published   Knowles'  book "Alone!
;n   the   Feres'."   in   which   he  tells  of
his experiences in the wilderness. Ho
argues that such a life as he led would
be of tremendous hygienic and educa- ���
tional advantages and  proposes  the |
college of nature as a means of popularizing the study of nature at close
Knowles would maintain his college
not alone for those in search of health
but also encourage young men to take
a brief course* in order to train them
in tin* full significance of nature as
well as in self reliance. The colonists
would find their own shelters and get
acquainted with trees and the forest
folk. There would lie. no luxuries or
amusements of civilization, hut he believes the forest itself would supply
ample comforts and entertainment as
it did lo him.
Suggested Site Suitable.
Minnesota's Superior shore country
is rough, rocky and. in Cook county,
practically unsettled. It abounds in
wild life both large and small, has
trout iu every stream, an abundance
of berries In the burnt land and lots
of birch and cedar bark and spruce
and balsam woods, which are quickly

Mere  Protection at  Less Cost.
London protects    Its    7,25
habitants   for   $4,7.'i0.00i)   per
less than It costs New York to   inadequately  protect     nearly    2,000.000
fuwer   people.    The     London   police
1 atrol   twice   tbe   area   of   the     New
York  police   at    less    than    three-
quarters of the cost to New York. In
11)11 there were 22 murders    In    Lon
don.    The  London    police    convicted
78.94  per cent, of  the  homicides.    Ill
the same year there,  were  14S    nitir-
deVs in New  York and 9  por cent, of
lie murderers were convicted,    It Is

year. While no dgun .*. are* available
to show the extent of protection accorded to lawbroakors in Now York,
it is Interesting to contrast the procedure with regard to gamblers arrested in the two cities. When a
gambler is not convicted in New
York, it i.s the custom to restore to
him the gambling paraphernalia that
was Hiii-.ed in the raid. .Metre than
$10,000 of this sort of property was
returned to accused gamblers In a
little more than a year. In London
such   property  la  destroyed   whether
e owner is convicted or not.

gambler is arrested he usually pleads
I guilty    and    goes    to   jail,    in    New
York he almost Invariably pleads nci
;i*,iiilty  and depends upon  his lawyer
iand some judge to secure liis liberty,
jllere we come to another cause   of
graft and corruption on tbe New York
police force,   General  Bingham once*
.said thai "a crooked, Buplne and   In-
I competent judiciary is at the root of
New  York's police problem."    On one
occasion   when   the   New   York   police
raided  ti  barricaded  room,  and  found
men   ,-inii    women    and    a   complete
gambling layout, tin* judge refused to
i convict  because no one  -votiltl     swetur
that  gambling' was actually going on.
Again, an   arrested gambler   secured
, his  liberty    because    no one  would
j swear that, the wagered money found
I upon  his  pi rson was not. counterfeit.
j On    another    occasion    a prosecution

No Politics in London.
The question Of polities, of course.
< ntci'.c into the New York police problem.  As far as the  London police* are
concerned it does not enter at all. Sir
Edward Richard Henry, commissioner
of police,   is as absolutely in control
of Ins men as is a general In action.
He holds office for life, and his functions    are    wholly    executive, trusted
suburdlnates looking after all administrative* details.    The  London   policeman has nothing to do bul  to do his
duty.     Should   be  meddle  in  tiny    affair  that is  not his  particular  business, he is nl once dismissed.   In 1911
16  London policemen were d Btnlssed
for Irregularities,    in the same time
4405 charges we're made agalnsl  New-
York policemen, and    Is'"'   were   discharged.   In 1007 a London police   in

"third degree," no graft, no pull.
That Is why the* title or the "finest"
has passed to London.
