Ls considering the various parts of our far flung empire and their relationship to any given subject it must be
borne.in mind that climate, environment, admixture of
blood, have all for many years been playing their silent
but eloquent part in the shaping of the new British nations. At the close of another hundred years the Canadian, the South African and the Australian, although
speaking the same tongue, and more or less of the same
blood, will be even more distinct types than they are at
present, in fact some authorities tell us that they will differ by as much as do the French from the English of the
present day.
However this may be, any one who has beenjn the
Antipodes will readily appreciate the difference in sentiment towards imperial problems to that evinced in Canada. Nearly a decade ago the problem of the naval policing of the Pacific, the competition of Germany, the yellow

from $r>00,000 to .$1,000,000 per vear to the support of the
British navy, New Zealand doubled her quota of $100,000.
The story is the same elsewhere in the dominions oversea. Cape Colony with her gift of a cruiser years ago,
Natal, Newfoundland���all alike did their share until in
some instances definite policies were shaped as the outcome of the deliberations of the successive colonial and
imperial conferences.
And Canada? Well, we should not need reminding
that we have to date contributed not one cent, that we have
passed resolutions full of boastfulness in ourselves as true
whelps of the old lion, we have talked much, and now,
when we propose to suit our naval policy to our own particular case, a section of the press is calling out that we
should forget the years that the locust has eaten and'
jump at one bound to the place which Australia has now
reached after years of education of the masses, after
years of contribution in mere cash.
It is not surprising that we cannot build and man ������
fleet. Even Australia cannot do this yet without the aid
of Great Britain botli in ships, men and money. But we
can begin where she did and work out the best way i*1
which our ultimate Canadian navy can play the most efficient part in the world wide fleets of Britain.
The longer we delay the deeper is the blot that forever
will rest upon our attitude towards a subject of such vital
importance to our own well being as well as to that of our
kith and kin.
No British Columbian can view with self respect the
fact that in a few weeks the battleship New Zealand will
visit our ports, mute reminder of the foresight of a people
fully awakened to their need, and, turning from the sight
of her in our own waters, reflect that the Navy League
jjhip Egeria at Vancouver is being put up for sale and that
American interests may secure her for training the volunteer seamen of that country.

���Csibulka'a "Song d'Amour" was especially pleasing, the muted Btrlngs
.pinging aB one with delightful effect.
The concluding piece, Isenmann's
"tfoddess of Liberty." was given witb
-great precision. It flowed on like a
���river of melody, but here again the
'tt-nipo ihould havo been quicker in
���order t.i bring out the full thrilling
���cadence of the final march movement.
lt U; quite possible lhat the addition
of a tympanist (known in the vulgar
tongue as a drummer) would help the
���orchcUra greatly, and there should
be cue in Westminster.
The other selections of the orchestra were uniformly well played, the
reverie of L. It. O'Connor's bringing
-memories of other pieces from the
���works of the well known organist of
St. Leonard's, Kngland.
Too much praise cannol be given
to Mr. Herbert Meekness, who
wielded tho baton, to Miss Vass, wh ise
accompanying was perfect, and to the
Ibirty 1'itlies and gentlemen in the
orchectrs   iiself.
The vocal selections wire all marked by one fault, namely Imperfect en
���nidation, due to the singer nr to had
acouetlc properties of the church ii

rendered. Mr. A. E, Alderdyco lacked

critic when during committee of supply yesterday when the lion. .1. 1>.
field's customs estimates were up. be
maintained that the customs staff

overmanned for political purposes.
He said that at Niagara Kails 13 additional men had been appointed although there was but a slight increase at tbat point in the customs
revenue. Mr. Hugh Qutbrle and Mr.
J. H. Sinclair also complained along
the same lineB.
The minister declared thai there
was no truth in the assertion made by
the opposition members, There had
been a large increase In the revenue,
which necessitated the appointment
of many additional officials. In no
case was a man appointed to the service unless the Inspector fur the district thought it necessary and desirable.
The estimates fer customs salaries,

Smilh and Brown who will endeavor
to have the baseball players attend

St. Petersburg, April 29,
angel correspondent sends a moving
description of the sufferings of the
Moldavian peasants who in mid-winter followed the fanatical monk Innocentlus over 1,000 miles from the
Podolla government to tho Muromsky
monastery, on the Onega river, where
he was banished.
Ragged, starving, and frost-bitten,
death threatened them all on the
snowy waBtes when the Archangel authorities sent a force of rural guards
to stop their march and arrest their
leader, and telegraphed to the Red
Cross Boclcty urgently asking for medical aid. Some of the pilgrims had
money in comparative plenty, for before starting northwards t hey had
sold their belongings, but lt was of no
avail to them iu the frozen wilderness.
Their number was underestimated
in the first accounts; It was well over
1,000, including a greal proportion of
women aud children. They were sent
back to their homes by train In warmed vans. The correspondent witnessed the departure of one party from
the station of N'ianiloma. Frostbitten
cheeks, ears, lingers, and toes were
the rule rather than the exception.
Nearly all the pilgrims were begrimed with dirst. Many women and children wero in hysterics. The occupants of one van were squatted on
the floor, praying with open Hililcs
before them,
Belief In Hia Divinity.
Tho correspondent questioned the
pilgrims as to the hold which Iniio-
ceiitius had over them, incredible ub

The followers of InnocentiUB knew
that Jesus Christ bad appeared in the
Onega region, and not in Palestine.
He was si'ized there, but was taken
elsewhere for crucifixion. "Alpha and
Omega" In the Revelation of St John
designated Our Lord and Innocentlus.
Otherwise, why wns there housing
room for 1.00(1 persons In the Murom-
Sky monastery when the monks only-
numbered 100? This was the work of
the Lord. They had been Bhown a
picture of Innocentlus portrayed as
Jesus Christ with u nimbus encircling his head and a cross und chalice
in his hands.
The   arrest   of   Innocentlus   only
served to confirm their belief in bis divinity, and they recounted how, when
lha rural guards came to arrest him,
and one of the guards tried to lire a
blank cartridge In order to Intimidate
(hem, his rille misfired three times.
A similar miracle hud occurred pre-
| viously at llalta, in  Podolla, when an
who has | Ispruvnik   (polle   officer)   insulted   in-
|micenllus and advanced  towards him
threateningly.      Innocentlus      looked
i straight Into his eyes, ami said quietly,   "Neither  thy   hand   nor  thy   fool
i shall ptlr," and the ispruvnik stopped
dead, as though paralyzed.
Seeking a  New Zion.
On   being  confronted   by   the  rural
guards   the   pilgrims   gathered   round
I Innocentlus. and had    to    be dragged
! away before the monk could be arrest-
| ed.     The   vice-governor  of   Archangel j In
approached Innocentlus.    "Where ure
yen   going?"  he  asked   him.     "1   am
going to Beek a new  Zlon,"  was the
answer, nnd the crowd of pilgrims re*
ipeateii In song, "We are going to seek
iho new Zlon."

The Emerging Chinaman:
Freedom May Undo Him
The alleged ungrammatical word
Chinaman' In the headline to thia article   Is   risked   because  the   phrase
used seems lypiciilly to state the condition of the Cliini se race at Hi" present moment, From whichever an-
gla one views China���China in her
gov run.onl <-r China in any avenue
,.i lie in her wonderful people,���one
sees change.
Yet Ii is precisely ihe nature of
that change upon which E/UropcanJ
writers in the country fail to agree.
The consequence is that the subject
i f China cannot yel be fully or accurately understood by tlio white
Sec lhe Chinese far away down In
Java, in the tin mines of the Federated Malay States, In thu BhaftB of
lln- rickshaw of the S'raits Settlements cr Indo-Chlna, and one finds
them Die same as he has always
known them; yet they are for the
uu st  pari   changed  irrevocably.
The Chinese Is found in many
places outside Ills own country; yet
here he would be tiie same Chinese
as you would find In his own wonderful middle kingdom. He Is the
world's hewer of wood and drawer of
water. A new country opens up. John
Is first brought along under a signed
Indenture to do a certain thing, and,
lf he lives, he does It faltfully and
iiiiinuruiuringly, and returns home at
llle end of his agreement.
Hul later on he comes again of his
own free will, and sets lo work in
another line, piles up money, and
makes the- place, prosperous. In
course of time he may, in dally life,
become somewhat alleniated frcm
his own  country,    No  man  quicker
than Uie Chinese absorbs the life of
another  nation.
Vi i 'o a remarkable extent his own
Chinese characteristics remain with
blm untarnished because be looks
forward to Hie time when be will go
bomo to die.
This is the kind cf Chinese In

Is mucb th" same daj after day.
II Is lhe same today under the
British or the Dutch government as
!��� was when the Manchus were going
strong us the alien governors in his
i ,-n land. Therefore, If one finds no
Mini change in the Chinese, it Is
ami ng this class.   As matter of fact,
they i:lill wear Ihe queue, many of
them. In British Malaya, in .lava, in
Rangoon, and other eaatern places tar

t se unconsciously retains this kind
of subservience to the Mancbruo.

cull out loudly aboul tbis or tlmt feature of lhe new rule, il is not for a
moment meanl that they understand
whal Ihey are culling out about. Uut
still, they are encouraged to do It���
and it may he that they will learn In
this  way.
Mere striplings, who have had a
year or two in America or Kurope
or Japan, are oflen sent out as officials into interior places. They have
no idea of ruling jusl ly - because
s' tne uf them should themselves be
still lit school. And bo lt Is rightly
suid that such new rule in China
means lhat the Republic serves the
people worse than the old regime did.
In some provinces right through to
Kansu and Tibet, right through to
Szechuen ami Yunnan, there Is anarchy and misrule and bloodshed and
robbery, and all the evlla that could
have been sent to the people as a
chastisement by the gods whom the
Chinese have worshiped for 40 cen-
turioB. In other provinces there is
How   Will   China   Emerge?
In some parts there is lawlessness.
In others absolute order reigns, and
progress runs apace. There iB real
advance in some areas; terrible retrogression In others. Reform and
genuine desire to go ahead, stagnation and utter official hopelessness.
In such conditions It is easy to see,
when one takes Into consideration
the size of the country and the widely
varying conditions of life among the
people, thai writers find It Impossible to agree. In one area one writer
declares that China Is now on her
last legs; another, looking at life
frcm another angle, In another area,
sees nought but progression and national  uplifting.
But, however much thoy disagree
upon lis effects, one and all are
agreed about the change for the bet-
l i ' r worse, the next year or two
ah ie can probably determine.
What I have written deals only
with tin- common millions of Chinese
al home and in different pails of
the '.ii. It does nct touch the gov-
i mun ":i:il outlook, of course; it does
not deal with the wabbly condition
<f finance, which afier all, is the very
life ef a nation in this age.

llshmcnt of China has worked a tremendous change on tho face of the
ppople, ami the man who knows his
China besUrtiiua'. admit that, no matter how mucb there may be In the
change that we do nol admire, and
".hich we feel Is making for national
destruction, the Chinese as a people

shown such independence of thought
and action as characterizes tlieir national life at  its present juncture.
Hut this very freedom and in large
measure act as they please may even
yet  be  their  undoing.

Dow Road.
The council has practically decided
not to authorize the opening ot Dow
road from Irlvlng street through the
West Burnaby school grounds as the
cost of the purchase of the land
necessary from the Bchool board for
the Btreet would be too great. A petition that the road be opened was received from Mr. J. I). Johnston and
45 others. The following is the municipal engineer's report on the matter
which was presented to the council
and passed on Monday night. "Tho
proposed extension of Dow road
would separate the Bchool grounds
(into two portions leaving a triangular
portion containing 0.93 acres, which
: was recently purchased by the school
board, completely Isolated. Figuring
the purchase price of the proposed
extension at the Bame price per acre,
$7142, which the Bchool board paid
for this property, the cost of the
road would be $5192. Even though
the school board would be willing to
allow of the proposed road thus intersecting the school ground which Is
unlikely the cost of purchase would
be too heavy for the funds at our disposal."
The Coquitlam municipal council
have applied to lhe Burnaby council
for water service on their side of the
North road and adjacent thoroughfares which are well Bettled. The request will probably be granted us
soon as the new water servloe arranged for between the city of Vancouver and Burnaby la turned on. At
| the council meeting on Monday night
a committee was appointed to interview the Vancouver water officials as
1 to the date on which the new- service
to Burnaby would be Inaugurated.
