I were asked whether the American

justification for resisting the civic,
power, I would not beistate to say that
the provocation the government is giving Ulster was incomparably greater
than was given to the American colonies. The government apparently
planned to force ' this homogenous

Col. Seely had very properly resigned
but that the government was right In
taking him back, "as he has told the
country the truth In words which will
be taken by the army as its charter,
and which makes the project cf forc-
ohme rule on Ulster hopeless and impossible."
To Provoke Bloodshed.
Andrew Bonar Law, leader of the
opposition, denounced the government
methods as a wicked attempt to provoke bloodshed in Ulster. The government had not believed it possible
that the army had such strong convictions as had been shown. The army
considered that in the matter of home
rule the government was as much a
revolutionary committee as Huerta's
government in Mexico.
Sir Kdward Grey, secretary of state
for  foreign  affairs,  denied   that    the
now | government had planned nny action
I'xeept that contained in Gen. Paget's
written instructions. Some of the depots in North Ireland, he said, were*
wholly defenceless and there had been
an honest misunderstanding on the
part of the officers.

An Exceptional Occupation For
Women���The Sunshine Lady.
An organization calling itself the Western Canada
Colonization and Development league is arranging a convention to be held in May at North Battleford, Sask., for
the purpose of inaugurating a campaign, the adopted slogan of which is "Ten Million Settlers for Western Canada
in Tep Years."
��� Had the league's rallying cry been announced as "Ten
Million GOOD Settlers," it probably would have met with
greater favor, at any rate here in British Columbia where
we have had and are having our own experiences with
Doukhobors, Hindus and a few others whom we could
very well have done without.
Organization to secure a greatly increased producing
and consuming population for Western Canada is timely
and highly commendable, provided always the proper safeguards are used in securing the desired immigration.
Western Canada does want and does need good settlers, but she does not require at the present time, nor for
some years to come will she be in a position to handle an
influx of unskilled workers, nor at any period will she receive graciously immigrants whose national moral codes
would endanger the high standard now jealously guarded
throughout the Dominion.
Canada, along with other lands, is confronted with the
problem of the high cost of living and this country has it
within her power to solve that problem, not only for herself, but in a great measure for the rest of the world.
Experts innumerable are ready at a moment's
notice to supply us with reasons for the constant soaring
of food prices. For the present undesirable condition of
affairs pretty nearly everything has been blamed from the
gold standard to government policies, but as is it natural
to suppose that, if the millions of acres of good land at
present lying idle in Western Canada were producing food
stuffs, beef, mutton, pork and dairy products, the high
cost of living in this country and abroad as well would take
a long drop?
In view of this it would seem that, while Western
Canada needs population, the exact nature of that immigration should be carefully chosen and every effort should
be put forth to ensure a very large percentage of the newcomers being men and women who would go out on the
land and stay there. By so doing we would in reality be
building a nation and opening up a profitable line of em-!
ployment to thousands, perhaps millions of old land
Seattle. March 25. Death threatened three women anil a child yesterday afternoon, when an automobile
in which they were seated ran away,
after a wild race down Seventh ave*-
nue west, plunged over an embankment near Prospect street, landing in
the ravine a masB of splintered wood
and twisted steel. The occupants
saved themselves from probable fatal
injury by Jumping from the machine
while it was traveling at a rate of
twenty-five miles an hour. The Injured are:
Mrs. K. C. Potter, 1419 Seventh avenue west, bruised about body; small
bones in right foot believed to be broken
Mrs. BS. P. Greenwood. Kdwardsvllle,
III., dislocated shoulder and broken
Mrs. R. B. Stayton. wrenched ankle
and bruised about body.
The a-month-old baby of Mrs. O. W.

Defective brakes were responsible
fcr the accident. The automobile, an
electric coupe, belonging to Mrs. E. C.
Potter, was standing In front of the
Potter home, 1419 Seventh avenue
west, with Mrs. Potter, Mrs. Greenwood, Miss Stayton, a nurse, and the
baby inside, when the brakes gave
way and the machine started down
the fcteep bill.
.\e>ne of the occupants of the car
understood how to handle the electric
and in plunged down Seventh avenue
west  unguided.
Miss Dorothy Potter, who drove the
machine, had left the car a few minutes prior to the accident to deliver a
message to her father. She emerged
from the house in time to see the
coupe careening down the hill in a
zigzag course, gaining speed at every
Miss Stayton. the nurse, was first
to leap, taking the baby with her. The
runaway car had traveled less than
a block and Miss Stayton escaped with
a badly wrenched ankle and bruises.
Mrs. Greenwood, fifty years old, followed, and sustained a dislocated
shoulder and broken ankle.
The machine was going nearly thirty miles an hour and had covered more
than a block when Mrs. Potter jumped. She is believed to have suffered
a broken ankle, but the extent of her
injuries will not be definitely known
until an X-ray examination is made
The injured persons were assisted
by neighbors and removed to their
homes. Mrs. Greenwood was later
sent to the Minor hospital while Miss ;
otayton was removed to the Seattle J
general hospital. It Is believed all
three will recover.

useful alike In proving the superiority of certain cows as we'll as the effect of good  dairy  practice.
For instance*, records show that in

1430 pounds of milk, but another
seven-year-old in the same herd nave
culy 400 pounds. Again it is found
that 22 cows averaged 11v*T pounds

anothe'r lot of L'2 averaged only 545

by their records. Even from amongst
those so kept, selection is necessary

Would Standardize Dollar.
There* could b* no more unscientific
yardstick of commerce than the gold
dollar, said Prof. Fisher. Everything
today has been standardized but the
dollar,  yet  a  Standardized  dollar  was
I tbe first reuuisite of business.  Fixity
II f mint price, he contended, was no
argument In favor of the stability of
gold, "Since the Increased supply of
gold in the world cannot decrease the
, price* of gold, it has its revenge, It
; increases the price of living," Prof.
Pish* r said. "The Idea is to let the
Increased supply of gold decrease tbe
price of gold instead of Increasing tbe
price of  living."
This     object     he     would     achieve
j ihroiiKh  standardizing the dollar, by
. giving it a  flexible or elastic value���
1 paradoxical as  that  may  Beem.    The
actual   gold   In   circulation   need   not
be   tampered   with   periodically,   but
tbe value' of the national bullion would
! he variable.    By the use of an  Indi ��

Dear Sir- Vour editorial of yester-
i day morning was one In the right dl*
! rection. 1 have been a resident of
this city for a little over seven years
and have watched Its substantial
growth from year to year, but one fact
in particular 1 have often wondered
at was the lack of Interest shown by
some of our property holders in the
matter of lack of attention to their
gardens and front lawns. 1 have nev
Heed from year to year that the same
certain citizens keep their grounds
and residences In ship shape, but not
the majority, It is a pleasure to walk
past certain neighborhoods nnd one
cannot but admire the condition the
grounds a.e in,
Since First, Second, Third and
Fourth streets have' been paved I have
noticed a wonderful Interest taken by
the properly owners in regard to their
lawns, but there are quite a few en
tho: e streets l mention who are still
careless of appearances. Fifth street
residents, although their street is in
a miserable shape, deserve great rn*
elit, especially those' fron Third avenue to Sixth. Their lawns and gardens, like those on Royal. Queen's,
I'ark How and Third avenue are worth
while looking at.
Hoping. Mr. Editor, that more of
our citizens may take up ei cleaning

Saskatoon. March 26. The present
somewhat sensational campaign on
the part ol th*' Western States to
"Keep the American fanner out of
Western Canada." is quite complacently regarded b> Western Canadian
land nun, who hiok upon It as invaluable advertising. In theii opinion,
the* American agitation against this
ive's!. is already defeating Its object.
Tbey are receiving more inquiries
from I'nited States farmers than at a
similar period of any previous year.
The shrewd American agriculturist,
thinks only of the enormous number
nf his brethren who have come here
.ltiing ri'cent years, and stayed here
because they prospered. He also recognises that were there not actual
outstanding recommendations to attract D. S. farmers here, they would
not como, and the present Ill-timed
and Ill-advised campaign is to him,
conclusive evidence of the superiority
of the Canadian west for the conduct
of his calling. In proof of the forego
ng. it is Interesting to note that on
JTth February, forty-four cars of set-
tlers crossed t'.ie boundary into Canada. Tlie'si' came chiefly from Mis

It is a safe guess that those who relieve pinched face and gaunt frame buy

Similarly when the bread line forms

A Straight Line is the
Shortest Distance between Two Points''
Whatever troubles old Euclid gave us in our schooldays
liis axioms were simple enough. In our business life
to-day we show a lively appreciation of the truth of this
axiom in cutting out superfluous efforts���in the saving of
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." It is
the shortest distance between raw material and finished
In Selling Goods, the straight line is
Newspaper Advertising.
It is the shortest distance between the seller and the buyer.
Some manufacturers are applying the straight line in the
making of their goods, but neglecting it in the selling of
them. Some have no line of communication with the consumer at all many let their message meander along bypaths of "chance acquaintanceship" instead of telegraphing it along the straight line of Newspaper Advertising.
