A Courtney opened the case for the
affirmative, 'giving the definition of
"lawyer" and "justified." quoting the
Krafchenko case at Plum Coulee. He
also sl'.owed how Abraham Lincoln always refused to defend a guilty man.
Ben Robb on the negative side showed that the lawyers were a valuable
asset to any country. His strong
point was In quoting law to show that
a lawyer is obliged in certain cases
to defend a man, to the end that no
one can be deprived of life or liberty ]
without a fair trial. Mr. Robb quoted many eases where a man wus guilty |
and yet by skilful showing up of extenuating circumstances often resulting in a suspended sentence instead ol
being sent to the scaffold.
Hugh   Wilson  made a  very  strongl
speech.   He showed that the object of

the freshet would cut the new channel

The predicament of the white fishermen on the Fraser
river is an example, unpleasing to contemplate, of what
may be expected in other lines of industry in British Columbia if orientals are permitted to enter this province in
the future as they have done in the past.  The white fishermen on the river have been driven into a corner with
their backs to the wall by Japanese competition and unless some government protection is given them they, as a
class, are in imminent danger of being wiped off the map.
The plight of the boat and net men of the Fraser is a
timely warning to those who look upon the oriental menace as a problem more for the future than for the present.
The state of affairs on the river brings into the spotlight
the fact thnt the Asiatics already have begun that movement against the whites of the British Pacific coast which
is intended to place this section of the country at least in
their hands so far as the control of certain industries is
concerned.   Just how far that desire for control may be
expected to go cannot be foretold at present, but the acquisition of authority is bound to beget further desire and
if the British Columbia of the future is to be spared a
fight for its very life as a white man's country a determined stand must be made now against the yellow hordes.
It is useless for some superior folk to argue that a
white man should be able to more than hold his own in
competition with an oriental.   He cannot do it, for the
simple reason that the oriental's habits of life and mode of
living, his cheaper diet and animal-like contentment in
conditions below the grade of western civilization are factors which the self-respecting white man cannot offset.
Present conditions on the Fraser, which, if allowed
to run unchecked, will make their appearance in other
lines of activity, are not the fault of those who are the
sufferers. They are the outcome of the complacent apathy
with which the entire Pacific coast has regarded the yellow peril and if that apathy continues, who can forecast
the outcome?
If this Mexican trouble goes much farther folks will
forget all about the Pacific coast Dominion government

there has been good frosty weather
and   bright  days.

Unique Scheme���Other News of
the Province.
An Interesting colonization scheme
is reported to have 'been organized
hy Hal Carlton and Albion Hunt, ol'
London, Kngland. Interior papers report that they Intend to colonize* a
tract of land of about 14,noo acres lying near Kin.sella on the main line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, about 15
miles east of Fd mon ton.
The novelty of the plan lien in the
fact that the promoters will endeavor
to attract In particular tne man who
has not had any previous experience in
farming. They will haw a model
320-acre farm in the centre* of the
tract. This model farm wlll be* run
on a strictly business basis while at
the same time it will be of education
al value.
It will show tire new settler liow to
erect the best and cheapest kind of
houses and other buildings and the
best manner of raising horses, cuttle,
��heep, hogs, poultry,    grain,    fodder,
(���rope e n a commercial paying basis.
The model farm will also teach how
to best handle t'ne land itself from the
initial breaking to the harvesting of
tin*  crops
Arrangements will be made for the
marketing of all kinds of produce, and
advice * li be given an to the necessary e-qnipment of the* farm, including
both live stock ami machinery, lf the
newcomer lines not wish to buy equipment for use the first year, but is desirous of confining his operations to
fencing, building and general Initial
development work, then the model
f:irm will break liis land and put in
his crop at moderate prices.
It has been arranged to house temporarily at Kinsella any seiUle-r while
In* is putt.ng up a house and ir those
who are bachelors desire they may-
board at a low rate at the model farm.
The project is cooperative in character, as everything will be bought
in large quantities thereby reducing
prices. Marketing will also be done
on a co-operative basis to a great extent.

ex-.M. P., of London, Kng.
"The Methodists nnd Presbyterians
will become one body after a while,
and after we have become one body
we will start on the Anglicans and
take them in," said Sir John. "If they
will not come in, let them take us in
and thus realize the fact that in union there ls strength. Whatever differences In creed which may exist do
not matter so long as we are all striving for t'ne same end."
He lemarked on tin* fact that the
Uritish Welcome league had welcomed 25,000 Britishers t:> Toronto
since it was or organized in  1907.

Not  on  Armed   Forces.
The country's future* depended on
the Christian virtue of her people.
S"mr- had claimed that a country's
greatness depended on her army and
navy, but history alone was sufficient
to disprove this. That wealth was
not the secret of continued greatness
was shown by the case of ancient
Rome. Neither was the secret to he
found in the education of her people.
This had been tried by Greece, at one
time crowded with men of Intellect,
but which had since lost its power.
Neither could you make a high
standard of morality and Christian life
by legislation. Men were not saved In
platoons, squadrons or regiments, hut
one by one, and it was for this reason
that the future of the nation depended
on the work of the churches.
The former member of tiie British
Liberal party made an attack on party
politics, declaring that the members
of such were too prone to vote with
party without regard to the right or
wrong of the question involved. Such
a system worked harm in every eoun-
t:y   where   it  was  employed.

a hundred years of life, and who had
given him the secret of her attaining
so great an age. It was plenty of
nlaln food, a total abstinence from
Intoxicating liijuors, and, although a
married woman, never to have worries. This latter could be credited
to her strong faith in her Maker. She
hael not worried about the higher criticism that is addling the brains of theological students of today.

Henry K. Wlcksteed, nachelor of
Arts and Science, civil engineer,
sailor, woodsman, and so forth. Is
known to the mobile fraternity or
railway builders as the Pathfinder of
the Ccnadian Northern Railway.
There's another distlnctio that

events in Montreal���Wlcksteed is tbe

Mann and Co. mean.) to lop off a few
sprigs of credit that false stories
bave woven Into laurel wreaths for
others, says Robson Black in Toronto Star Weekly. Some recognized
the tunnel idea as one of Sir Donald
Mann's Olympian prophesies; others
told bow Col. Davidson, the rajah of
realty, had comprehended tbe whole
business at one swing of his walking
stick. And tben Sir William Mackenzie waa supposed to bave "seized" tbe scheme at one master flash
of Intuition. Now, the tame fact Is
that tbe Mount Royal tunnel la due
to a calm, professional hazard of
Henry K. Wlcksteed, who wasn't
sent by anybody to do anything���
but did It. He came home to Toronto and mentioned his plan to the
two great chiefs of the C.N.R. lt was
then tbat Col. Davidson, bead of
Ihe land department, took a band
car for tbe metropolis and commenced to measure roods and perches for
' Model City."
A conversation with H. K. Wlcksteed Is certain to Impress one tbat
railroad building is really no more
troublesome than soldering a teapot.
Probably he does not intend to convey that impression, but of all men
he is the last to base his personal
record on extraordinary talents. So
his tongue slips by the coupling pins
of Wicksteed-plus and settles more
comfortably on the impersonal concerns of the railway that employs
him. For Instance, I questioned
him as to some of the problems of
the survey chief. "Yes, there were
a few difficulties, but he was blessed
witb some remarkably-competent division engineers." Was not railway
building In the mountains a perplexing task? O, not so very! The main
thing was "to follow the rivers."
And carrying a transcontinental
across the prairies? Well ��� Mr.
Wlcksteed, afraid of enlarging the
character of the job which he bad
conquered so often, tapered It down
until one had the impression that
railway building between Winnipeg
and the foothills was not half so
hard as clipping yard lengths at a
ribbon counter. Such personal un-
obtniBlveness is * a widely-shared
virtue of the "out-of-doors" man,
and seems a natural distillant of
camp Ures and Ike common saucepan.
H. K. Wlcksteed ia therefore the
wrong man to approach for much
information of H.K.W. In the Canadian Northern offices, it is well-
known that Mackenzie ami Mann
place tbe highest value on a Wlcksteed opinion. He combines thorough scientific equipment with mellowed judgment, a "head" for
weighing his engineering predilections on tbe same scale as "fixed
charges," thus rendering him a survey financier as well as a skilled professional. That he has ingenuity and
Imagination, two of the plastic qualities in a man tbat lift him out of
the routine regiment, Is shown by
Innumerable innovations in hiB survey marches, which previous engineering practice has not discovered.
Thus on the Sudbury-Port Arthur
surveys which covered over four
years, instead of toting In the winter supplies for the survey parties
and placing them in caches at thn
rear of the advancing parties, he
changed the custom and had them
placed in front, so tbat every day's
march through tbe wilderness
brought the men closer to their food
bases, "The effect on the morale of
the parties was noteworthy," comments  Mr.   Wlcksteed.
Tamarack  Is  Passing.
The larch, or "tamarack," of eastern Canada will soon be commercially extinct. Already, according to
Dr. Gordon Hewitt, the Dominion
entomologist, the large larch saw-
fly bas destroyed between fifty and
one hundred per cent, of the eastern
larch. This Insect pest was Introduced Into tbe I'nited States from
Europe about 1881, and having few
natural enemies In America has
spread over tbe whole eastern half
of the continent. It i.i doubtful
whether it will be brought under
It Is a common superstition among
the woodsmen of eastern Canada
that many of the "dead" larch trees
have come to life again. The trees
noticed were not really dead, bow
ver, but had appeared so. because
they had been entirely stripped of
their leaves by the larvae of the
larch saw-fly.
The tamarack Is a valuable tree
because of its ability to grow In
swamps, and Its wood Is highly
esteemed for fuel, ties, fence posts
and construction work generally.

"It hasn't been sn many years since.
a woman had no escape open to her,

she must Just smile and  be ridiculed.

"Oeneral Huerta urged thar martial

Sixty-eight years ago, in the springtime of 184H, the United States went
to war with Mexico, says the Spokane
Spokesman-Review. The country had
then 20,000,000 people; Mexico 7.000,-
000 or 8,000,000. If we should now he
drawn Into another war it would be
100,000,000 against 15,000,000. In preparation for the former war the regular army was recruited to :',0,000 men
and President I'olk called upon the
States for SO.OOli volunteers. Of these
forces a little more than half saw service In Mexico and along the Rio

June a patehtlc remnant of 1142. The
youngest of them all Is an octogenarian. Vet a little while ami the last

Noting, as they must, the strangely
vivid likeness of the long overture of
the former war to the circumstances
which now seemingly are drawing us
Into another clash of arms, to the dim
eyes of theBe aged soldiers of another
day it must seem as if time had set
back his dial for 70 years.
Jackson Was Long Suffering.
Kor nearly a decade prior to the former war the United States exhausted
every resource known to tlle arts of
diplomacy and peace in an unavailing
endeavor to command respect for our
flag and persuade the government of
Mexico to fulfil Its repeatedly broken
word. As early as 18:17 President Jackson said in a message to congress:
"The length of time since some of
the injuries have been committed, the
repeated and unavailing applications
for redress, the wanton character of
some of the outrages upon the property and persons of our citizens, upon the officers and flag of the United
States, Independent of recent insults
to this government and people by thej
late extraordinary Mexican minister,'
would justify in the eyes of all nations Immediate  war.
President Van Buren, who succeeded Jackson found diplomatic methods
as futile as they had been before, and
in desperation declared. In a message
to congress, "it has become my painful
duty to return the subject as it now
stands  to  congress,  to   whom   it  belongs,  to  decide   upon  the  time,  the
I mode and the measure of redress."
Temporized too Long.
"Had   the   I'nited   States     at     that
! time," said  President  I'olk In his  fa-
| mous war message of 1S4H, "adopted
j compulsory methods and taken redress
into their own bands all our dlfflcu*-.
tits witli Mexico would probably have
been long since adjusted and the existing war have been averted.    Magnanimity and moderation on out part only
: bad the effect to complicate these dif-
' ficulties and  render an amicable settlement of them  embarrassing.     That
| such   measures  of redress  under  similar   provocations   committed   by   any
| of  the  powerful   nations    of     Europe
would   have  been   promptly     resorted
to   by  the   United   States   cannot   be J
doubted.    The national honor and the
preservation of the national character
throughout the world  as  well  as our
own self-respect and    the    protection
due to our own  citizens,  would  have
rendered such a resort Indispensable "
The parallel between lS-lli and 1911 j
i.s  closer even   f'an   tliis   would   indi-l
eate.    Mexico then, as now. was torn I
by  revolution,  and  botli   warring  factions   maintained   toward   the   United I
States an identical policy of coiitt-mp-j
tuous disregard.    As a protest  President I'olk massed a large part of the!
! regular army  aljnt;  the  border  and
placed the navy in the harbors of the
Mexican  ports.
Polk Encouraged Rebels.
Still more striking was the parallel
between Poul's policy of dealing with |
the revolutionists and that of Presl-1
dent Wilson towards the so-called
Mexican "constitutionalists" of the
present day. i'olk had conceived a
deep aversion ti President Paredes,
as 'Wilson now cherishes a deep dislike for Huerta, and encouraged Santa
Ana, then in exile in Havana, tc return to Mexico to lead the revolutionists, and justified that course in his
message to congress.
"Under all the circumstances," le-
clared the president, "it was believed
that any revolution in Mexico founded
Ottawa, Ont., April 20. -At a largely attmded meeting of the directors
of the Canadian Forestry association,
in this city, it was decided upon the
Invitation of the government and lumbermen of Nova Scotia, to Hold the
next annual forestry convention in
the city of Halifax, September 2, 3
and 4 next. This will be the first
time that a forestry convention has
ever been held in Nova Scotia, and
very great Interest attaches to the
event. The secretary of the assocla
tlon, James I.awle;-, of Ottawa, has
recently returned from a visit to Halifax, where he met representatives of
the government, the lumbermen and
of the commercial, agricultural and
educational portions of the community. Among all these, there Is a very
general desire for this convention. The
forest conditions in Nova Scotia are
peculiar, and as they are very important to all classes. It is the intention to have the different subjects
dealt with by experts, so that no mistakes may be made In handling the
remaining forests to the best advantage. A number of those prominently connected with forestry matters
from Quebec, Ontario and even farther wist in Canada have signified their
Intention of attending, and arrangements are now going forward in regard to railway and hotel accommodations, etc. Further particulars of this

unanimously agreed to and the mayor
nominated Aldermen Goulet. Annandale and  Kellington.
Alderman Goulet thought the city
might also join with the board of trade
in entertaining the Paicflc Coast Advertising Men's association convention
on their visit to New Westminster on
June 13, a Saturday afternoon. What
was desired was that the council
should aid In showing these men about
the city. They were men in charge
of the avdertislng or the Pacific coast
from California to Alaska. About 200
would   visit   Westminster.
Alderman Kellington moved that the
finance and Industrial committees
take the project up with the board of
trade. In doing so he endorsed the
visit tc the Fraser Mills and the colony farm and suggested a trip through
the city proper. The resolution was
passed   unanimously.
Alderman Kellington suggested that
as special Friday night sessions were
no longer necessary, emergency meet
ings might be convened when urgent.
It was conceded that tho evening
meeting on Friday, the 24th but was
lrgent, but thereafter abolition might
be in order.
Among the communications submitted was one from Harry Eacchero,

keep open his premises on Sunday during tho summer to sell to the travelling public fruits. Ice cream, soft

The feature of the producers' state-

It'H Palmy Days Date Back to the
Time When Father Duncan Led
the Indians From Savagery Into
the Way* of Peace and Built
Them a Church���Then Dimension
Entered In aud They Left.
Less than a hundred years ago the
Indians up around the Arctic Circle
were killing each other for food. We
have occasional glimpses of this ceremony to-day on the alms of the moving picture machines. The weird, ungainly dances, the more weird noises,
the war whoops and gaudy ornaments. Then the sombre feasts
around a great crackling fire, says
Margaret Bell in Toronto Globe.
Into this scene of barbarism came
a young man of simple habits and
kindly disposition. Father Duncan
they learned to call blm. Father Duncan had great faith In an all-pervading Omnipotence, and went about
showing tbst faith. He learned to
speak their tongue, he watched tbem
at tbelr bow and arrow practice. And
soon they ceased to kill tbelr fellows
and roast them over the camp fires.
Father Duncan was becoming established. He lived In a small lag
hut, and tilled a bit of land at the
back of it. And tbe great, hulking
fellows would come silently along,
snd watch the white-faced man
working under the Arctic skies.
Small wonder that they learned to
look upon him as a sort of god. His
principles were not warlike, he was
just ln all his dealings, as the great
god of all the Indians was supposed
to be.
And soon tbey began to forget any
god but the one he represented. And)
they thrived, under tbe new dispensation, their squaws gave them new Indians, and their workings in leather!
found a market ln the country to the
south of them.
They even worshipped in the hut
of Father Duncan, who hau no creed
but the creed of honesty and conscientious work.
But he was not popular with the

���What is being done to improve
transmission at different parts of its
system by the B. C. Telephone company Is outlined in an article Is the
current issue of Telephone Talk. Now
that the main lines of its construction
program have been filled in. the company is paying special attention to
the improvement of its service and a
staff of experts is kept busy on this
particular work.
The feature article of Telephone
Talk this month Is Port Alberni,
which claims .to be the most progressive little city of its size in Canada,
it is well to the fore In civic activity, aud is brisk industrally. Illustrations show that the vicinity of the
Alberni canal is one of the most favored sections of the province, abounding in great agricultural, mineral, tim-
bty and fishery resources. The B. C.
Telephone company is making considerable extensions here.

But they left many reminders.
Wonderful carvings cut in great cedar trees. These are the family totems. They took large trees, anywhere from ten to fifty feet high, and
carved upon them grotesque birds,
bears, fishes, and animals of all sorts.
Kach carved figure represented something���part of their faith in nature.
or a tribute to their deity. The white
man cannot appreciate the totems of
the Indians.
The most remarkable one stands
on tbe seashore, where a neglec'.eil
road now leads up from the landing
to tbe village ot Metlacatla. This is
made of granite. One might call tt a
monument. It represents a mother
holding her child ln her lap. Rising
from the head ot the figure like a
high hat, the monument extends
some six feet, terminating In a square
top, six or eight Inches in diameter.
At the bottom is inscribed some
strange epitaph, no one knows what.
But the Indians know the meaning of
It. They say that the monument was
erected ln memory of a white woman
who dwelt amongst them, and died
in their midst.

Country During the Coming
\ ...liptg. April 20.���In the course
,.r sn interview, J. D. McArthur. the
well known railway contractor. statV
that steel bad been laid from Edmonton to Lesser Slave lake a distance of
170 miles and that the valley of the
Peace river country would be reached
this summer.
Mr McArt'.iur gave out fur the first
time details of the Lilmontim, Punic*
���gan and British Columbia railway that
is opening up this last great west, ami
inland empire of thousands of square
niibs in extent, lie also announced
that work would commence this sprint;
on the Great Waterways railway to
Fort Murray, northwest of Kdnionton,
a distance of 350 miles. This line to
Dunvegan and British Columbia will
extent 400 miles into the very heart
nf the Peace rivt-r district where the
���settlors are reported to be pouring in.
���Wa have completed the first 170
miles of the line to Lesser Slave lake."
���Kaid Mr McArthur. "We will reach.
Smoky river, one of the lower tribu*'
tari, s of the Peace river, this fall and
tbe road will be completed to the |
British Columbia boundary line in the;
fall of  1915.
"We are already operating under
construction the division of 131 miles
to the new town of Smith at the cross-1
ing of the Athabasca river. The Do- i
minion government lias had the country surveyed and there are thousands
of homesteads available between
Smith and tbe British Columbia boundary and  even  beyond  that  point.
"We are going to commence work
on thc (ireat Waterways railway this
spring and we will put 1500 men to
work on that line just as soon as con-
dftions permit."
Tho two new railway lines that Mr.
McArthur is constructing into northern Alberta will tap 150,000 square
mill s of virgin territory, through
which runs several broad navigable
streams that will give access to the
country for settlement. There are at
least 1400 homesteads ope-n for entry.
