Victoria, Feb. 27.���Without any
warning non. \\. R. Hoss, minister of
lands, late yesterday afternoon broke
the news to the legislature that the
government had decided not to Incorporate in the bill to amend the Foreii
Act any clauses dealing with increased royalties on timber. As announced last week, following a conference between the minister and rep
reaentatives of the lumbering interests of the province, provision waa
made in tlie bill amending the Forest
an increase in royalties od
timber oh the coast and east Of the
Cascade on January 1, 1916.
In the former district the present
rate of 50 cents per thousanad feet
was to be doubled and in the mountains the present rate of 60 cents per
thousand feet was to be increased to
75 cents, and the Doyle scale was to
then give place to the British Columbia log scale on January 1, 1916.
Everything in connection with the
arrangement appeared to be perfectly
satisfactory to all concerned; knowledge than things were otherwise,
came with startling suddenness when
Hon. Mr. Ross rose with a request
that the amendment bill, which had
reached the report scale, be recommitted In order that sections 10 and
12���tbe former fixing the increased
royalties and the latter providing for
the use of the B. C.-log scale eaat ot
the Cascades after January 1, 1916���
could be struck out. The request of
the minister was agreed to.
ln explanation the minister stated
that tbe government had decided to
conduct a further enquiry into the
question of royalties on timber tn

The minister of education, however,
went the length of saying that no policy for the Importation of American
teachers had been adopted.
"The laws governing the department of education With regard to the
qualifications and appointment of
teachers," said the minister, "are the
same today as thev were when Mr,
Hault.iin was in charge Of the government of the .Northwest Territories.
"It is true that there has been a
demand for teachers that was more
than equal to the -supply. Last year
the province wan 414 teachers short.
it is a little early yet for me to gel
the figures for this yeaj.The province
has advertised Its needs In this re's met throughout eastern Canada and
the facts have becn placed before the
teachers of Great Britain with a view
Inwards  improving conditions."
"lias the province offered any Inducements to teachers to Come here
from the United States," the minister
was asked.
"The same inducements are offered
teachers from that country as from
any other. We have our statulanls of
qualifications and training and th si
must be complied with.
"in certain Instances where school
districts found it impossible to secure
certificated teachers, temporary permits were granted to applicants who
convinced the department that their
academic training was adequate."

Pari? Feb. 27.���The French Government has in preparation extensive
plans for Increasing the strength of
the army. These are to be submitted
to the Chamber or Deupties next week.
It is understood that the scheme is
designed to counterbalance the new
German military measures now pending belore the German Imperial Parliament
It is gathered that the government
intends to ask for a first credit of
$14,(ino,ooo, or $16,000,000 for an Immediate supply for munitions and
munition wagons, and that this is to
be followed by a second appropriation of $1110,1100,000 for the rearmament of all branches of the service,
including  the heavy  artillery.

is to be increased and the govern- I

The Itev. G. M. Whittlngham, vicar
ln a well known parish in the poorer
part of the North of London, recently
arranged for the performance by mem
bcrs of his congregation of a reverent "Mys'ery Play" in the parish
church. Everything was arranged,
but at the last moment, the Bishop
of London stopped It with an edict
that "Mystery Plays" must not be performed in churches.
"lt was only an, old-time mystery
play In honor of the manifestation of
Christ to the Gentiles." said the Rev.
Mr. Whittlngham, "commonly called
the 'Mystery of the Epiphany.' The
Bishop of Southampton said the other
day that nk'iorial and dramatic Incidents in the life of Christ should only be made iu churches. The Bishop
of London was evidently not aware
tt tlie strong feeling existing among
his clergv on the subject."
Protests By Various Public Bodies
Another Indication of tho difficulties   which  religious   bodies  have   to
I encounter  is  the outspoken  protests
j by various democratic  public  bodies
i against the use of certain hymns In
government controlled  schools.    For
Instance, the Nottingham county coun
ell  has  centred  attention   upon   this
verse ln frequent use by the Episcopal
"The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them high and lowly
And ordered their estate."
A prominent member of tho council has pointed out that the Almighty
did nothing of the kind.    It was on a
par, he declared, with the line:
"May we to our betters bow."
Only a few years ago such protest
would have brought down a storm ot
abuse  and   persecution   rrom   the  religious observing public.    Today,    1 t

pretty romance became known.

Bertha Wachler was dying because
no one could be found who would give
up enough skin to be grafted on to the

Kaplow  said  nothing of his   tnten-
