A fatal accident occurred at Bur-

Have  18.000 Troops.
Today's orders for the dispatch of
two more regiments to Texas will re-
su.'t in the assembly in that state of
nearly 18,000 troops,   more   by   3000
thai  the  entire force of the regular
army  which General  Shatter led into
Cuba.    Nearly 11,000 of these soldiers
are In camp at Texas City, under the
command of Brigadier General Frederick Funston. of Philippine fame. The
olhers are scattered along the border
from  Brownsville, Texas, to Nogales,
Arizona, under the command of General Tasker H. Bliss, the larger garrisons being maintained   at   El   Paso,
Nogales. Douglas, Laredo. Eagle Pass
and  Brownsville, where the railroads
froai the United States enter Mexico.
Although  the two    regiments    will
proceed to Eagle Pass   and   Laredo,
General Bliss will designate their exact location.   The present strength of
���ach regiment is 832 men.   At Laredo
and   Eagle   Pass,  the   two   regiments
will  relieve   six  troops    of    cavalry,
which will be distributed along other
tieiints on the western border at Bliss'
discretion.   This will place under that
general's command about 4200 cavalry
troops and 2100 infantry.
Though large in the aggregate thl3
force is regarded as small in many
quarters here for a rigid and efficient
patrol of the 1800 milts of ohreier be-
ween the I'nited States and Mexico.

that it will be sufficient and says
that be bus no present intention of

up the rest of the day.
Star Witness for Crown.
The* court in Winnipeg was a storm
centre throughout the morning and
afternoon sessions. The excitement
occurred as a result of placing on the
witness stand John H. Buxton, jr., the
star witness for the crown in the case
Of Hagel and Westlake. charged jointly with complicity in the escape of
Buxton was on the stand the entire
day,  being  on  bis feet  continuously,
with   the  exception   of  a   brief time
| for the lunch period of five hours and
i a hair.
The entire morning session was
taken up by Buxton in a dramatic
recitation of his story, almost every
'detail of which coupled Percy Hagel
| with being one cf the leading conspirators in planning the escape of
Krafchenko. This morning's session
was tiie calm before the storm for
the moment that R. A. Bonnar, K.C
commenced his cross-examination big
red sparks began to fly.
Contrary Evidence.
Although    Buxton    withstood    the
gruelling  tire.   Mr.   Bonnar   managed
to  bring out  three discrepancies  in
the evidence as given today and that
Pro. Igiv*n at the preliminary hearing and
before  the  royal  commission  on pre-
I vious  occasions.    Buxton's  only    explanation  of this   contrary  evidence
was that he could not hilve fully understood the questions propounded to
him on the two occasions on which
he gave sworn evidence before.   Buxton was unbending    throughout   and
proved  himself a  stubborn    witness
and never wavered for a moment.   He
refused to commit himself definitely
as  to times or dates.    Buxton from
time to time insisted that he was trying to tell the truth, but on these occasions   his  protestations  were only
met with ridicule by Mr. Bonnar.
Frequent Clashes.
The afternoon session was rendered
all the more    exciting    by    frequent
clashes  by   Mr.   Bonnar,  counsel  for
the  defence,  and   Mr.   Anderson,   for
the crown.
Mr. Anderson objected frequently to
the manner in which Mr. Bonnar addressed his questions to the witness
aud much time was taken up by Mr.
Justice Curran in deciding legal disputes, especially as to whether Mr.
Bonnar should read the full text of a
subject in asking the witness with
regard to what he did or did not say
at the time of his previous examinations.
As stated. Buxton was shaken on
three points, in his statement today
be said 'hat when he first met Constable Reid in the Clarendon hotel
bar and Miked to him about Kraf-
cbenko, no plans of escape were discussed. Reid, simply relating that he
was sure Krafchenko bad a gun
which Reid said had been brought
into the cell strapped to his stomach
by a belt. Mr. Bonnar. by a few
searching questions revealed that
when Buxton gave his evidence on
former decisions he told how Reid at
the first meeting had discussed the
plans Of Krafchenko's escape. The
important point In this connection
v.eis that Hagel was not introduced to
Reid until after this conversation In
the bar took place. Again Buxton
made' statements on the stand this
morning that he had gone to visit
Krafchenko in the Burris block one
evening after the escape after he had
! first, held a conference with Hagel In
the hitter's private office aud was instructed by Hagel to go to the block

Mr. Bonnar brought out by cross-

Since the opening of the new year a fresh spirit has
shown itself along the waterfront and, in place of what
might be called passive resistance to the harbor improvement scheme, there is rapidly growing a strong sentiment
among those citizens interested in waterfront leases a desire to do all in their power to aid the harbor committee
of the city council in its work for the city's good.
Several months ago when the first obstructions to
the progress of the harbor improvement work were making themselves manifest, The News pointed out the almost
certain success which would result from friendly conferences between the city council and those ratepayers whose
waterfrontage will be most directly affected by the piling
and filling operations. Since the 1914 harbor committee
took up its duties under the chairmanship of Alderman
Annandale this policy has heen put into effect all along
the line and the results obtained to date must be exceedingly gratifying to every citizen interested in the development and progress of the city.
Acting on the assumption that there is not a waterfront leaseholder who is an enemy to New Westminster's
best interests, Alderman Annandale and his colleagues on
the harbor committee have inoculated the negotiations
relatives to harbor improvement with the serum of good-
fellowship and civic loyalty, and the spirit in which they
have been met so far by the leaseholders is a credit, not
only to the businesslike diplomacy of the harbor committee, but also to the public spiritedness of the leaseholders
It cannot be expected Ihat such a comprehensive
scheme as the harbor improvement plan and one involving such radical changes along the waterfront will be put
through to completion before many difficulties have been
met and surmounted, but, if the sentiment now existing
between the city hall and the waterfront is maintained, it
is certain that the harbor work ultimately will be crowned
with deserved success, backed by the good will of all concerned.

To the company's first annual report, Hon. W. .1. Hanna, Ontario's pro
vine-ial secretary, writes this foreword:
Canada Bhould do more than banish
the slums. The old countries are doing that. Society is responsible for
the slums and society must pay for
their removal, which will rec|uire
something in the nature of a surgical opeiatlon on the body politic. Hut
belter housing has a far wider application than tho slum problem. It
means better living conditions for the
greal masses of wage-earners, and will
bring with it a toning up of our whole
social and industrial system. Enabling legislation will be necessary in
every province, We, in Ontario, have
made a beginning, and the results set
out in this pamphlet, obtained under
an act passed this year, would indicate that we are on tiie right 'rack. I
agree with the statement that every
Canadian workman of steady habits
should he able to own his home. The
advantage is as much to the state as
to the Individual, for the home must
always be* the starting point for
strengthening and elevating the socbil
conscience and  the national life."

A man wearing a plum colored suit passed a bogus

They are saying across the water that King George
influenced Asquith in the matter of the home rule settlement. Well, if the king influenced the premier, it's almost
certain the queen made a few suggestions to the king.

Some members of the opposition in the Dominion house
don't want B. C. to have any more senators. Annexing a
few more seats in the old man's home at Ottawa may not
help this province to any considerable extent, but if the
plate's going round there doesn't seem to be any valid reason why we shouldn't take a piece of cake or two.
For clear and unvarnished truthfulness the following
"want ad." in the London Post annexes the coffee roll:
"Britisher, slightly bald and of no particular social standing, tired to death of the needy clamor of the young, the
well-born and the well-educated, desires to meet with some
charitably disposed person of more money than brains,
who will enable him to taste the unwonted and peculiar
joy of living in luxury on someone else's bounty."
in 1913 the total mineral production of Ontario reached the new record value of $63,000,000 of which $37,-
000,000 is to lie* credited to the metallic���mostly gold and silver- and $16,-
ooo.oon to the non-metallic minerals.
No other province or territory in Canada can point lo as good a record as
this in an\ year. In 1900 the Yukon
territory produced about $22,000,000
in gold -that being the zenith year
of the big rush. Yukon's production
of the yellow metal has fallen now
to about $6,000,000 yearly, a mark that
is likely to be passed in 1!U4 by the
mines of Ontario's Porcupine district.
British Columbia's vast mountain
ranges have great linworked mineral
resources that could be profitably
mined were there adc*c|uate railway facilities, but that province's mineral
yield is much below Ontario's. Uritish Columbia's mineral production is
about $32,000,000 or nol much more
than the value of Ontario's cold and
���silver output  alone.    If  Ontario  had
j coal deposits such as British Columbia,
1 Alberta and Nova Scotia, pur mineral
' product ion would probably be as much
las all  the other provinces  together.
It is exceedingly satisfactory to note
1 that men with large capital are being
I attracted to the Ontario mining fields.
I The making good of Cobalt and Porcupine has established Ontario's repula-
! tlcn,  but  the  development  work  In
the mines of both districts bas taught
the  lesson  that the deposits  can  be
profitably    worked   only on a large
scale, and by Mae use of large amounts
of capital.    In  Its earlier days Cobalt
was   a   "poor   man's   camp"   where   a
few thousand dollaits might return sev-
j eral hundred thousand, but ra'nlng f.io
lower grade ore is a rich man's enterprise.   Increasin ; Detention to the g del
bearing districts in particular is likely to come of the profitable handling
of the low grade ores of the Porcu-
pine   district  and   real   mining   work
will be encouraged.    This is important
because  not  only  around   Porcupine,
bul   far   and   near   through   northern
Ontario are splendid mineralized dis-
Ontario,     Quebec  and   Manitoba   Are
in  i:ad With New  Legislation.
Last year the Ontario government
passed a measure to provide for the
financing of improved housing undertakings, says the Monetary Times.
i'lie act empowers the councils of cities and towns to guarantee the bonds
of housing companies (organized to
Improve housing and not for profit).
Lo the extent of 86 per cent, of the
money required, that is, S5 per cent,
t tit" value of their land and buildings. The remaining 15 per cent, of
:i money required must be private
capital, represented by stock of the
company paid up in cash The act
limits the dividends the company may
pay upon this stock te> six per cent,
pi,- annum. This is In many reespects
an entirely new type of constructive
housing legislation, and its opetation
will be watched with Interest. A similar act has just been passed in the
province of Quebec, and one is being
considered by the government of Manitoba
Housing  Company's  Work.
The Toronto Housing Company,
Limited, was Incorporated under the
j Ontario act. Shortlj aftc the passing of tiiis legislation the city council of Toronto aul torized ths guarantee of bonds to the value of $860,000,
or the purpose of the company upon
the basin of $150,000 being provided
bj  the company.
A few days later this bylaw received the approval of the provincial
board of health. The vote of Toronto
ratepayers was therefore not required-
Shares to the value of $11111,000 only
have' as yet been subscribed for, so
that $60,000 additional must, be provided to entitle the company to the full
amount authorized by the council.
The company's first purchase of
land was from the city, some five
acres. From the neiture* of the land
a carefully planned development of
the whole area was necessary to prevent it becoming an eyesore to this
section of the city. The present plans
for this land have been approved by
the city council and $400,000 will be
openl on this development and house
200 families.
The company have* purchased 686
reet of land near St. Clair avenue, in
bhe northwest of the city, and plan
to sp"end there in all tiii.it! $100,000.

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

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 lhe 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.
If you art doing a local busi*ess talk over your advertising problems with th* Advertising Department
of this newspaper.     <} // you are doing a provincial or national business it would be well for
yon Is have tht counsel and assistance of a good advertising agency.     A list of these
will be furnished,   without cost or obligation,  by the Secretary of Canadian
Prtss Association,  Room S03,  Lumsden Huilding,   Toronto.

Vienna, Austria. March li. -The
lationa between Austria-Hungary and j jJUfS '" J
Russia do not seem to Lee improving.
The irritation Shown some short time
ago is apparently increasing, although
no definite reason for this can be put
forward. Russia is not satisfied at the
great increase of military strength on
the part of the powers of the triple
alliance and Austria strongly suspects
that Russia means to pursue a progressive programme because of her
immense  preparations.
While Russia has no very definite
grounds for her supposition that the
triple alliance is increasing troops unduly, at present. Austria lias just
learned that Russia is spending 75.*
000,000 sterling on new railways and
llift these railways are for the most
part of great strategical value on the
western side of the empire.
Russia Must Arm.
It is clear to the unprejudiced on-1
looker that Russia nni>-t arm, if sho|
is to keep her strength up to that of
har neighbors, who greatly Increased
the strength of their armies last year.

Agreement   Would   Help.
If Russia and Austria-Hungary

power to behave as if they were jrreati

to Russia and Russia to Austria-Hungary, Meanwhile, Germany and Italy
are watching the quarrels anel differences between the two great states
who claim predominance in the Balkans.
The Balkans are regarded by Germany as an outlet for trade: hy Italy
not merely as an outlet for trade, but
also for surplus population. It is quite
probable that while Austria and Russia disagree, tiieir rivals will establish themselves in the Balkans so securely tiiat merely nominal rights will
not prevail against the right of possession.

vent of D. A. Thomas, the* prominent
Welsh mining magnate, into this couu-t
try  has  aroused  w idesprcaei   Interest,
was   amply   testified     yesterday     by I
Franklin   Denton,  a  mining  engineer!
of  Pennsylvania,   who  has just   com���
pleted   a   brief  tour  of   the   northern
Section of British Columbia In the in-1
terests of his  connections.
Mr.   Denton,  who lias been  in   the
country   carrying  on   a  quiet   inspection  for several weeks, declares that
from his observation of actual mining
conditions  iu  the Groundhog country
there   is   every   possible   justification
for the faith of Mr. Thomas, which
has found recent expression In his application for a railway charter to run
[from the mining zone to tidewater.

' pression in the United States as elsewhere.    Coal  is one of the most universal necessities at the present time,

is uason to believe thai In the north-

that then* is anthracite, and to anyone  who  knows anything about, the
rumors of coming troubles in the Balkans may have, hut they are heard
everywhere in Austria, while the differences witli Russia render them
more probable. Tnat there can only

Touching upon the proposal or Mr.

Denton expressed the opinion that lt
would do much toward the speedy de-

thought that It would prove a means
to further discoveries of profitable deposits niii yet charted at all. The necessity for rail connection appeali d
to him strongly, and he paid a high
tribute to the provincial government
for Its faith In prosecuting this undertaking in the manner that has i n

Speaking on the subject of coal generally, Mr. Denton said that the large
interests were always on the lookout
for promising coal deposits. No country could get along wlt'iout coal. Ile

that while the turmoil and excitement

permanent effect, not only upon t'.ie

relations with the other countries oil

that the metamorphosis is not in re-
