Vancouver, Dec. 19.���Hernan Singh,
the Hindu who has been the subject
of strenuous litigation by his friends
In their efforts to prevent his deportation, has lost out in his fight wtth
the Immigration authorities. This
morning be lost the last and fatal
round of the conflict; tonight he will
be deported on the steamer Empress
o flndla, and taken to Hongkong.
Mr. Justice Macdonald. who ordered
the  man's  release  a  week  ago,  was
the judge  who decided  Hernan's fate
this morning.    His lordship held that
this time th. man had been properly
found guilty  of  misrepresentation by
a   properly   constituted   board  of  enquiry, and that he must pay the penalty by being deported.    His lordship
held that there was sufticient difference between this ease and the case
of  Rahim,   tried   before   Mr.   Justice
Morrison,  that the decision    in    the
Rahim case was not a precedent for
(ordering the release of Hernan Singh.
By a curious coincidence   the   man
Rahim was present in court when tho
judgment deporting Hernan was made.

SATURDAY  MORNING,  DECEMBER 20, 1913,
RAISING HOGS ON
A PAYING BASIS
Director  of   Experimental   Farms   for
Canada Gives Pointers to Swine
Breeders.
CHEER UP, SAYS SIR RICHARD.
Like a plate of plum pudding at the tail end of a meal
of bread and drippings comes Sir Richard McBride's message to his old townspeople to cheer up and look for better
things than financial stringencies and similar indigestible
monetary fodder.
There's one thing about Our D-r-, about Sir Richard;
he's one of the cheeriest little cheerers that ever cheered.
If you feel that your heart is stowed away in the toe of
your left gum boot, then read up some of the premier's
speeches on the future of this great province of his���of
ours rather. Before you've gone more than a couple of
paragraphs you'll feel the cockles of your heart warming
up like a hot water radiator after the fire's lit. You'll
brighten up in spite of yourself. You can't help it; neither
can he.
Even his political opponents, and there are some,
though the provincial legislature doesn't bear evidence
to the fact, must admit that, as the original, all-the-year-
round, British Columbian Santa Claus. Sir Richard holds
the copyright. The anti-government people have thrown
burrs at him till their oratorical right arms have reached
a state of abnormal development. Some of the burrs have
stuck and some haven't, but down in the premier's office
facing on James Bay, the smoke goes up the chimney just
the same and there seems to be cash left in the locker to
buy fuel for more smoke.
A man who has been premier of this banner province
as long as Sir Richard and who has listened to criticism
of himself and his administration like some of the brands
that have been served up to him from all quarters of the
country has a right to tell people to smile in the face of
trouble. Of course it's part of a premier's day's work to
get criticized. If we didn't have premier's and governments to roast there'd be civil war in no time. But even
then, it's bound to get on a man's nerves and when the
subject of the roasting and the grilling and the frying and
the boiling back-fires at us with advice to cheer up, we
can't help but admit that he's showing a commendable
Christmas spirit.
Everybody in this province doesn't think along political lines with Sir Richard, not by a long shot, but when
it comes down to Christmas, why then, it's pretty nearly
a safe guess that we've all got about the same sort of
feeling.
So when our duly elected premier suggests that we
smile and look happy for the glad yuletide, whether we
like his political stripe or not, it's our duty to obey the
impulse. It doesn't mortgage our votes anyway: we can
do what we like with them the next time we &U a chance.
In the light of all whicb it must be admitted that Sir
Richard McBride has come through with the right sort
of a message for this particular time of the year.
In Japan, an exchange says, unlike most other countries, the chio*f source of railway income is the passengers.
Probably the nigger porter hasn't yet become an established institution in Japan.

profitable ln the future. "There is no

year in and year out with a very large

who   need fall to   mate money   by

"It is worth dollars and dollars to
you," he remarked. He urged the pig
men to give their animals a fair show

"The Establishment of Seed En-
tries," was the subject spoken on by
H. H. Newman, of Ottawa. He showed that ns over .fl.OilO."00 bushels of
seed must go Into the ground each
year the enormous loss due to poor
���seed could easily be Imagined. The
purpose of ibe Canadian Seed Growers' association, which he represented, was to secure pure productive
seed for all farmers in Ontario. The
plan adopted was to start a more com-
. p.-eh nslvo organization that would
place the association in touch with Ihe
farmer. Clubs could he formed com-
posed of all the farmers living in one

ibe inspected by the officials of the association, registered and given public
recognition. Already thirty-one clubs
have been formed, which included altogether ,137 farmers. These have
taken 1,164 bushels of registered soed
from the assolcation.
lie   said:   "Any   group   of   farmers
situated In a district free from noxious  weeds  like  wild oats,  wher?  the
condition of the soil  favors the high
development  of  seed,  may    organize
themselves into a club without assuming   any   finantial   obligation."

ihis subject pure milk production, hand

When buying an article of food you are

���its quality and ingredients.
If this information is refused don't buy it.
Some of the low grf.de baking powders are

are scrupulously concealed.
A housekeeper would not use a baking powder containing alum if she knew it.
It is well when buying to examine
the label on the can. Unless it shows the
ingredient cream of tartar, don't buy it.
Dr. Price's baking powder is absolutely free from alum.

Victoria, Oeo 19,   Owing to the tre-
mi ndous speed v. Ith which iho Indian ���
claiinR before th*' nealln-i; commission I
are progressing, U is now consid red
: liki ly that all tlione who can possibly !
oome to Victoria at this time of the'
year will have been beard within a',
few daya and tlie rest of th. vlBlt of,
lhe   commissioner until January io I
, will be glvi n up to white men's claims.
A.   J    Patton,   counsel   for   mime   7lj0 j
Indian  claimants, statu!  that he was j
ici urlng th ��� country with telegrams
urging the Indiana to cume down un
quickly as possible, but he was greatly !
afraid be waa going to be stuck before
many da)    wt re over,   No fewer than ;
IV1. claims were heard in one day and
iiiih" flrat hour and a half 27  were
examined.
The propoaed excursion of the com-
mission to Alberni Ib also an Improb-j
ability nov.'. It was discussed h) court j
'and  it waB explaliu-d  to the conimis
loner that the Indians have lo come
In Victoria anyway to obtain the sltip-
! p!:t(( master's certificates which are a1
u eeBl&ry  exhibit  in the presentation
Of their claims,    lf it should develop,
however,  that It  is   more,  convenient,
for   some   Indians   to   so   to   Alberni, i
the commissioner Btated he wa3 will
Lng   to   make   the   trip.     Indiana  hive ,
come   to   Victoria   already,    however,
.rem   points  far  beyond   Albernl.
.1, A. Aikman's 70 clients have all
given ibiir evidence now. Owing to
i_e many different places from which
the Indian caine It has been found
necessary to obtain a second Interpreter to translate some of the dia-
leetr,
An amusing Incident occurred whrn
one old Indian stated that since the
passing of the sealing industry he had
In en compelled to make a living carv-
in t: totem poles about a foot long
which he sold for "5 centa He put
one In aB un exhibit. The various
cj,unrel antl court officials were much
In Urea ted and the Indian's pains in
coming to town to make his claim
wre well rewarded for be made a
number of sales,ln th�� court room.
A large number of the claimants are
demanding oompenaatton for the Iobb
of earnings of deceased relatives, Mali,1 Hayes this morning claimed for
two deceased relatives, lier fathi-r and
brother. Other women are claiming
for themselves, aa they used to steer
while their husbands speared the
teals.
