HOME RULE BILL.
nounced tonight that he would call
a meeting -of the committee for nex'
Tuesday. Until thnt time no formal
consideration of the repeal measure
can develop.
Although friends of President Wll
--i n had hoped to have the ceinuls
committee meet earlier, they decided
lo make no effort to induce Sena;or
<> Gorman to change his plans. They
will Insist, however, upon action within a reasonable time after the com
mitt.ee  resumes  work.
Senator Owen of Oklahoma, the
majority member of the committee,
who will lead the tight in committee
tor the administration, conferred with
the president today. Later he made
Ui,* emphatic declaration that friends
of the repeal bill would not submit
to unnecessary delay in pr. llmlnary
c. nslderation of the bill and flatly
de clared that the gauntlet of commlt-
n*i' discharge' would be hurried Bhould
.-.ii attempt be made to Impede the
progress of the measure.
Public  Hearings.
That some members of the commit*
tee who oppose exemption repeal desire to have public hearings on the
bill was apparent, but administration
senators Insisted that such hearings
Were unnecessary, and that there
could be no other reason for them
< >.cept d.Hb. rately to cause delay.
"Public hearings on this Issue are
unnecessary," Senator Owen said to
night, "anil would unne^ssarily pro-
lone U��l�� controversy which Ih a clean
cut I.Htie nnd thoroughly undersinoil
by every senator We are entitled to
pel away from congress early this
lime, and intend to do It  if possible*."
Senator O'Gorman has said there
would be no unnecessary delay in
tli. committee in considering the bill
hut it is expected tbat requests will
I... mad., of him io grant hearings.
Both  Claim  Majority.
On this tie committee may in*
forced to iw and it would be* con
ildered as a test in real issue. .Ins
how ih"' committee stand is uncertain, both si.les claiming a majority
of one An unfavorable report on
the bill would be followed by a min

the controversy before the senate on
a motion to adopt the minority report.
Mary complications are possible- in
the situation even before the committee, be cause there are half a dozen
bills pertaining to the tolls question

Feeling   in   Favor  of  Settlement
Federal  Basis Gains Ground.
London,    April    1.    A    remarkable
pac'fic  spirit    has    come    over    the
political  situation,    in    strange   contrast  to  tin*  storm   and   strews  of    a

Juarez, Mexico, April 1���Heavy
fighting was in progress today at
Torreon, according to a 1000 word
report received tonight by General
Carranza from General Villa.
The gist of the Information was
given out through General Carranza's
secretary, Alfredo Breceda, to the
effect that the heaviest fighting was
proceeding In a so-called canyon
named Huarache, the southern railroad exit from the city.
The canyon is said to be in reality
a sort of basin formed by the proximity of three mountains, one of
which is Cerro de la Cruz. Through
this basin two railroads run.
It is one of the mest strongly fortified of the federal positions and

from where he has recently been'
sending despatches, and which is to
the east of Torreon, is making a circuit, to the south with ihe purpose,

hindering the movements of the fed,

Ilis telegram was based on a message of congratulations on the "fall"

arms of the garrison here. General
Villa replied as follows:

Turn Clause in Agreement to Purchase
Against Plaintiff Who Seeks to
Compel Payments.
A clause in an agreement of sale
which provided that after the purchaser had been in default the vendor

olare the agreement null and void
was relied on yesterday in the supreme court. Vancouver, by Messes

N Lothian of the Schaake Machine
Works, New Westminster, as a defence to an action brought by the Pitt
Kiver Lumber company for $700 on
an agreement to purchase a lot for
J1200.
The agreement In question, in whlcn
the Pitt River Lumber company was
the vendor of the land, was made on
March 18. 1912. A first and second
payment was made, but the defendants
in September, 1912, not wishing to go
on with the purchase, failed to make
a pavment of $310. A thirty day notice was given. Since then another
payment has fallen due and the lumber company brought suit to compel
both payments,
"Our defence ls that the p'aintiffs
by their notice declared the agreement
null and void when the* September,
t912 payment was overdue and therefore we cannot be called on for further payments," argued W. J. Whiteside for the defendants. The case
for the plaintiffs was argued by W. J.
Balrd. Judgment was reserved by Mr.
lustlce Murphy.

protection for a much greater period
than would be the case today, should
a break occur in the trunk main running from Coquitlam dam to this
city.
Little doubt as to the suitable pnsi
tion for the new addition on Eight1'
avenue is felt by city officials, although the borines are being made as
a matter of precaution.
Thc site is located 400 feet higher
than the river, which gives a good
pressure to all other sections of the
city. In fact it is the highest portion
of the city.
Acccrding to City Clerk Duncan
who was secretary to and a member
of the water commissioners when the
water system was first installed in
New Westminster in 1S92. the excavation work on the present reservoir
on Eighth avenue was made in soll't
hurdpan, which formed an excellent
b'cking and obviated the necessity
of cement being used on the rock-
facing inside the reservoir. Mr. Duncan believes that the same vein of
hnrdnan will be unearthed on adjoining lots to he used for the new water
storage plant.

THURSDAY MORNIN G, APRIL 2, 1914.
WILSON AND HONOR WIN.
By passing the bill to repeal the clause in the Panama
act exempting American coastwise shipping from canal
tolls the American congress has demonstrated that it
places first in its consideration the honor of the nation
which it represents, while, by securing this vote in the face
of the determined opposition of his own party leaders,
President Wilson has proved himself the biggest man in
the United States and one of the ablest, if not the ablest
president since Lincoln.
In spite of every possible effort on the part of his opponents to drag the issue down to the level of a discussion
on a dollars and cents basis, the president lifted the question to the high plane of a decision in the matter of national honor and throughout the controversy he has kept
it there. Wilson may not be a politician within the generally accepted definition of that term, but he is a great
statesman and an honest man. As president of the United
States of America, he took the stand that he was in the
final analysis the guardian of the nation's honor, responsible to the people who had elected him for the besmirched
or unsullied condition in which that honor was preserved
and according to his lights and to the best of his great
ability he has striven to fulfill his trust.
No man, not even his bitterest opponent, can fail to
admire the president of the United States and, if he be
an American, it will be impossible for him to suppress a
thrill of patriotic pride at the inspiring sight of the occupant of the White House standing firmly with his back
to the wall of national honor and fighting valiantly and
effectively, even against his own political friends, for
what he regards as the right.
By endorsing the action of the United States congress
and making the repeal of the exemption clause in the
Panama act an actual fact the upper house at Washington
need have nothing to fear. The nation's representatives
in congress already have spoken, they have decided in favor of Wilson and honor and in the final reckoning no
nation or individual ever lost prestige or property by upholding justice.

.Montreal. April 1- Illumination of
the business methods of Hri ish firnib
was given Ui a report of the trans
portation committee of the Chambre
de Commerce, which had been qu*e*r
led by the Louden chain her of commerce as to the reason of tho small
volume of trade between Canada and
the mother country.
The energetic combing of the Dominion by the representatives of American firms anxious for Canadian
business was given as the principal
reason for the preponderance of Am
erican products shipped here. Uritish manufacturers, said the reporl,
either refuted to establish Canadian
agencies and to send commers���t]
traveller! to sell their lines of goods,
or were so dilltory in their shipments
and in th.ir acknowledgement of tht
receipt of orders thai to do buslncyii
with tiiPm was sometimes difficult.
Hrltish merchants, In fine, did not
consider  the  Canadian   market    of
sufficient importance' to bother with
the trade that could be secured here.
while  the  I'nited  Btates  firms   were
eager ln their competition to get the
business offered by the Dominion.
Adding to the Cost.
Tiie proximity   of   tin*   American
market,  und   the   facility   with   whicli
the Canadian market could be made
Into a subsidiary one by an energet-
I ic firm, vvas another reason ventured
by the committee in Its report.   Brit
Ish merchants, moreover, were in the
| habit  of adding  to the  cost  of their
articles  the* charges  tor cablegrams,
express   charms   for   packing   cases,
and other tributary Items of expense,
.in*,ens the    United    States    firms
were  accustomed   to  provide  similar
items free for the salo* of the volume
cf busine s-i.
There seemed little desire on the
part of the British manufacturers to
offer Candlan buyers such products
as the Canadian market could really
use, it was added. When they were
asked to adapt the overseas product
to the exigencies the colonial market
provided, their (Characteristic reply
was: "We cannot revolutionise our
Bystem for small orders such as Canadian supplies, because Canada is
much more sparsely peopled than the
British Isles, for which our manufactured goods are primarily Intended."
American firms, on the other hand
hav.: made ..very concession to Can
adian customers.
The recommendations made by the
Chambre de Commerce In its reply
to the London body, contained the
following suggestions:
Uritish commercial agents to bt
si nt to study Uu* Canadian market
with D view to equipping their maim
factories to supply products that
could compete with American and
German business.
The decimal monetary* system to
be substituted for the present  JL'  s. d.
Bystem, which is a cause of much
nimble and iuss of time In business
exchanges.
The supplementary charges and In* I
cldectal items of expense in transacting business Bhould be home* by the
Uritish manufacturers, as it  was by
those of the other nations.
Greater despatch in shipping goods
and attending to agents orders
should   be  obtained.
If Great Britain would ui\e Canada
a preference  In  regard  to trade customs, the chambre  is of the opinioi
that the trade relations between the
two   countries   would   be   i Jtablished
on a greater scale, due in large measure to the fact that freight charges, j
with   a   larger   volume    of    business j
would be much less in the Individual |
case.
Ths Dinner Hostess.
It is Imperative that the dinner
hostess be ready and unruffled by
baste, a little ahead of tbe time set
for ber guests to arrive. If civility
counts at all, one's guests nre usually
on time, lt is proper to wait a few
moments for tbe late corners. The
rule laid dowu by a clever hostess In
London some years ago was: "To
wait dinner five-minutes for an earl
aud countess, ten minutes for a duke
and duchess aud fifteen minutes for
the Prluce and Princess of Wales.
The king is never late." Which proves
the great of the earth-are punctual ln
keeping their engagements.
It Is uot kind nor proper to spoil a
good dinner for many guests because
of the lute arrivals of the few. It Is
proper to announce" dinner five minutes after tbe arrival ot tbe last guest
-unless we adopt tbe American fashion of having cocktails served In tbe
drawing room before dinner. Then
dinner is announced five minutes after
tbat little ceremony is over. The conservative part of tbe world of fashion
follow tbe foreign Idea and omit tbe
cocktail. The wines are usually very
simple���a good white wine and champagne witb the dessert and fruit The
meu linger over the wines and nuts
a very short time today.
The table linen may be as elaborate
ns the [locketbook permits. Yet tbe
dictates of good form point to tbe less
trimmed cloth, a line damask or llneu
hemstitched with napkins to mutch.
The napkins are large and square, wltb
tbe initials embroidered lu tbe center,
and folded lo three parts.
The decorations in glass nnd silver
are less ostentatious. The glassware
ts now of rock crystal aud the tumbler
for water���cooled, uot Iced���has a tall,
slender stem, the wine glasses and
champagne glass the same shape tn
miniature.
The display of knives nnd forks Is reduced to a mere uothing today. The
old time bewildering glitter was too
formidable���lt spoiled our dinner by
suggesting "loo much for digestion's
sake."
The Dumber of plates Is also reduced.
A guest should never he without a
plate before him. "The little aperitif
is on a small piale resting In a larger
one, and when removed a dinner plate
is at once placed In front or the guest
and remored as tbe plate upon which
the soup plate rests Is put before the
guest. Another plate is substituted for
the entire course In the same way. It
Is very simple, and the only rule Is
there should uot be a vacant place iu
front of the guest. A plate should always be there.
A Ifttle block ot brend or "pettt pnln"
Is put by the napkin to be used as a
convenience in managing wilful tidbits
which evade the fork, with a gentle but
deiided coercion.
Finger bowls of rock crystal, wltb a
little plate to match, and a pretty lace
doily under the bowl are brought lo
with the dessert plates at a bome din
ner, aud with tbe plates for fruits aud
bonbons at a more formal affair. Tbe
water in the bowls should be warmed
just enough to take the chill off, and a
bit of lemon should be added to the
water, which should cover the first
joint of the fingers.

Fall of Torreon Will Not Solve Mexican  Problem���Villa's  Army
Crippled.
Villa was reluctant to move his
army south to attack Torreon. While
an impression has taken root In the
public mind ln the United States that
capture of ihat stronghold would
open an easy route to Mexico City
and signify the speedy overthrow of
Huerta. Villa's mind was free from
that errcr. Saltillo and Monterey
would yet be in hia way, and It now
seems plain this his shattered army,
which has suffered frightful losses in
Its heroic assault on Torreon, is In
poor condition to be hurled against
the fresh forces which Huerta holds
In reserve at various vantage points
between  Torreon and the capital.
Villa knows Torreon. He captured
it last September, and lost it in December when It was recaptured by
the federals. The war-harried city
has been stripped of almost everything of value, ami offered little ln
the way of loot, and loot has betn
the chief resource of the VUla-Car-
rauza government. Associated Press
dispatches from Chihuahua report
that Villa ia near the end of his financial resources, and unless decisive results are achieved aeon the affairs or
the rebel territory will reach a crisis.

Iof the    diplomatic    corps.    President
Wilson's  policy   of political  iuterveu-
i tion against  Huerta, the lifting of the
embargo on arms, and watchful waiting   for   results,   was  adopted     prac-
tically  against  the  unanimous    judg-

yet prove successful the result would
be a brilliant vic.ory ami vindication

weeks ago. Shi is pursued by many
animals of the jungle and has great
difficulty In obtaining food and Is

out of Paves ami throws her old
dress down by a path. Bruce, the
American hunter, who is still looking
for hi r, finds the dress and recognizes   It.
II    Immediately takes up the chase
again.    Kathlyn  is taken by the pilgrims to Allaha. where she* is sold on
the slave, market to Prince Umballah,
the man whom Bhe refused to marry,
and wliu t;:use.l her to come to India '
In quest of her father.    While she is ;
having th   caste mark of her new mas-
ter  put  on  her brow  she  persuades
une of the natives to go to Bruce who1
is ln Allaha, having given up all hope
of  finding  her,   and   tell   him   of   her
plight.
Umballah takes Kathlyn with blm to I
the palace and from there to the cell!
where her father Is Imprisoned. While ���
in the cell Umballah says to Colonel
Hare, the* rightful ruler of the country.
"You   are   the   man   who   would   free
all  the  slaves  in  the  kingdom:   now* j
vour daughter  is   my  slave.    Colonel i

Mr. Buxton tells a story of a fisherman who. after a successful four
hours' tussle with a large salmon,
came back In triumph and related
story to htr, aunt. Like all

on the lime occupied anel the mus-
1 ular expenditure.

The Straight Line
in Creating Demand
"A Straight Line is the
Shortest Distance between Two Points"
Whatever troubles old Euclid gave us in our schooldays
his 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 thc saving ol
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." It is
the shortest distance between raw material and Gnished
product.
En 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.
Newspaper Advertising is thc Shortest Distance between
the two points of "Supply" and "Demand."
If you nre doing a l^cal buiinois tulle over your advrrtisirj

Cblcago, April 1.���There la now
in Chicago a fish that could huve
swallowed twenty Jonahs without Inconvenience, which is mere than a
whale could do, owing to the email
calibre of Its throat. Among the
many persons who have seen this
fish are clergymen, Bouie of whom
surmise that It was really a flsb of
this species that swallowed Jonah.
The monster was caught by  Capt.
Charles A. Thompson, a Mlmal, Pla.,
sportsman, while cruising for tarpon
off Knight's Key.    It's  weight  when
caught was 30,000 pounds.   Tbe liver'
alone weight 1700   pounds. Its length
is    45    feet;     its    greatest    clrcum-'
ference Is 23 feet, nine inches and Its
I diameter 8 feet, 8 inches.   The mouth
is &0 Inches wide and 43 inches deep,
��� With a tongue 40 inches long. There
] are  a  multitude    of    teeth    smaller
] than   a  baby's.    The   tall   resembles
somewhat that  of an aeroplane    anel
* measures ten feet from  tip  to tip.
Fight Lasted 39 Hours.
When   Capt.  Thompson   first   sight-
led the monster It was la/.ily floating
' on  the  surface of the  water.    The
1 captain  and  his  crew'  put   off  for it
in  the  lifeboat    As it drew  mar It
sound.*.], but it soon reappeared and
a   harpoon   was   slioi   deep   into   Its
' Bide.     Then   began   a   hard   fight.     It
appeared to be unable, to dive to   a
| great    depth,    but  it bad all of its
speed  on   tbe  surface.    The  Bal)ors
j said   that   at  times  it   made*  4ii  miles
j an  hour.     Pour  more  harpoons  wero
I shot Into It and    about    IBO    bullets
were fired at it. but later the bullets
wore  found  lo have  hardly  pierced
the skin.
I     The' light,    tejok  place    in sight   of
some nt' the* Plorida k.*ys. where thousands of people gathered to witness
'. it.    For thirty-nine hours���two .lays
and a night    the greal fish pulled the
' lifeboat through the waters, the yacht
Following at a site distance.
Subdued at Last.
At  last, however,  it   appeared    t->
j.'.Iv.��� In;  it had ceased  its Btruggles.
Then  they  lashed  it  alongside    the
yacht   and  began   the  voyage  shoreward   the 31-ton yacht escorting the
15-ton fish.
But presently the fish became lively again, having enjoy, d a  n*st.    it
Still. It gave a sudd, n flip Of Its enormous tail which smashed a portion
of the dock, demolished the dock
bOUM and broke a mans leg. It was
its death struggle. Alter a few more
spasmodi cmovementi it gave up the
ghost.
Taxidermist  Did  the   Rest.
Having landed his catch, Cap'alu
Thompson was at a loss as to what
to do with It. The problem was solved when the Smithsonian Institute
became Interested in It. The institute sent J. 3. Warmbeth, a skilled

CHILDREN SUFFER M08T
FROM DIVORCE EVIL
Chicago.    April    1, No    divorce
' should  be granted anyone who has a
��� minor child unleBS the child shall have
i been   provided  for  lo  the  satisfaction
of the court. Is the contention of A. J.
Petit, chief justice of the circuit court
[in en analysis of Che first annual ro-
, port of t'ne new municipal bureau of
divorce and marriage statistics.
The close relations between divorce
courts and the juvenile court as indicated in the number of petitions for
th.. <���;:��� c of dependent or delinquent
children, is tin* outstanding feature of
Judge Petlt's analysis. The Juvenile
court record since July. 1809 showed
50,368 pelitions for the care of children.
Of these, the report IndiSated approximately 31! 750 eases were the direct result of divorce or the neglect of
parents through drunkenness or desertion which would have constituted
'sufficient  grounds  for divorce.
"Twenty eases were selected at ran-
1 dom from the 240 ease's filed in the
Juvenile court in January," said Judge
Petit, "We found six children are
in the hands of the court as a direct
.result of divorces, five as a result of
father's drunkenness and four because
Of  desertions.
"This same ratio in the r,o,:i0S cases

tbelr forsaken ship, If laden wltb
wood, remains practically unslnkable
and is driven hither and tbltber over
tbe ocean, at the mercy of tbe winds
and currents.
In course of time the swelling of
the wood cargo may burBt the hull

until tbe vessel Is driven ashore and
broken Into matchwood against some
iron-shod coast, Bhe wlll remain a terror to passing ships.
Now and again a steamer may be
rendered helpless owing to her machinery becoming disabled, by shortage
of coal, or by the loss of her rudder
or propeller in heavy weather. Her
crew may de>cide to abandon her and
take to the boats, but If they neglect
ot open the seacockB on their departure iheir ship may Uoal lor many a

The erratic movements of somp
derelicts are almost uncanny. Not fo
very long ago a Norwegian sailing-
Bhlp called the Crown left Nova Scotia for a South American port. She
was laden with timber and while still
in lhe North Atlantic Ocean was overtaken by a terrible storm, which d*a-
masie*d and left her a battered wreck. I
Tbe crew realizing it was useless to
remain on board, abandoned her and
look to the boats, never to be heard
of again; but, their ship, although she
vanished completely for no less than
three months, was sighted at the end
of this time on the edge of the Sargasso Sea, a ,','ood seven hundred
miles away from where disaster over
took her.
Soon afterwards she was sighted
off Bermuda, but then disappeared
again, and, for all we know, may still
be drifting about the ocean.

Wolseley's Christmas I'mMim.-.
One of the most remarkable Christmas puddlng3 o record was the one
made by the late Lord Wolseley and
a brother odicer to celebrate the
Christmas spent in the Cri d. These
are the details: A hox of figs did for
fruit. Suet was unobtainable, so the-,
used rancid grease. There was no
flour to be had, so they made some
by pounding up ship's biscuit with e
pestle and mortar. The latter articles were also Improvised���a Russian

however, and the fate of the pudding

The biography of the late Sir W. H.
Bailey tells that when he was a witness before a Parliamentary committee he airily observed that all men of
Intelligence were in favor of a certain
bill. The opposing counsel, marking
hiB prey as secure, asked: "Is Mr.
John Bailey in favor of it?" "No,"
cheerfully answered Sir William. "Do
you consider your father a man of
Intelligence?" pursued the barrister.
"Ah!" said Sir William, as though
the matter had Just dawn on hlni.
"we must discriminate; there ts ancient Intelligence aud modern intelligence; my father represents the first,
but I represent modern intelligence."

Queen as a Caddie
A  royal golf match was held th">
other day at Sandrlngham, between
j Prince John and Prince Olaf of Nor-
;way.    The caddies were the Queen of
! Norway and Princess Victoria.
Both the young princes are keen
.golfers, and Prince John has gained
considerable skill ln the game. His

who also drills he little prince every
] morning. Prince Olaf has his "pro-
' fesslonal" with him also���a Norwegian soldier.
But Lord Braesey possesses something better than a picturesque pen.
He has a master's certificate; he has
the   steady enthusiasm for   the   sea
that carries him over three thousand
six   hundred   nautical   miles   on  one
trip.    On a hundred occasions at the j
hospitable  tables  of  colonial   gover-1
nors and corporations Lord  Hrassey |
has    been    called    upon    to    make j
speeches.     He    ha?     never    shirkeel
them,  nor the serious questions   of
Empire and Labor that he has b?en
asked  to solve In  more quarters of
the  globe than any  man alive.     His
speeches remain   as   the   models of
tbelr kind.
His miniature experiences or.
board The Sunbeam have given him
the clue to many of the difficulties
of the labor question. As a good
sailor he has the respect of his men;
he has their respect, too, for owning
a thoroughly serviceable and sporting yacht. She Is sporting becanse
she goes vast Journeys; because she
ls a little boat that faces big waves.
She can round the world with a complement of no more than eighteen
seamen and three stokers. Lord
Hrassey has never been a timid master. He believes with Browning
that���
The honest earnest man must s'.and
and work,
Accepting serfdom.
And he believes that moBt men, at
the call, are honest and earnest.
Thus he has taken on. in obscure
foreign ports, men left behind by
other vessels for Insubordination,
and found them excellent.
