At  Steveston.
At Steveston, where the commission
sat on Friday, numerous reasons were
advanced for the depreBBed state of
agricultural, vegetable gardening and
the egg Industries on Lulu Island.
Oriental competition In gardening
was the most potent factor which rendered market gardening an unprofitable enterprise. Another grievance ]
was the extortionate charges of the
middlemen. His elimination by open
markets and the bringiug together of
oonstimi r and producer was one rem
edy put forward, while better ami
cheaper transportation   was   another,
Co-operation was strongly advocat
ed as going far to ameliorate conditions in agricultural and concomitant
Industries,
Reeve Ilriilge gave one cogent reason for ihe decline of Intensive farming In the fact that Richmond was in
a transition state from a purely rural
municipality   to a  Beml-urbau   oue.
other factors ln the situation were
Chinese competition and the growing
of large crops of hay, which yielded
good returns for little trouble and ox
pen se
Co-operation WOUld remedy ilu pres
ent depression to some extent.
Mr. Thomas Kyd, a farmer of 30
years' standing In Richmond, gave evidence lo the effect thnt tho revenue
from farming land was not commensurate with the money Invested despite
the  fertility  of the soil.    A   farmer,

"We found Lincoln occupying a

"Something was said about his first

friend, the first ancestor I know anything nbout was cue Tom Lincoln,
' who oamo over from England In 16S4

At the time of this Interview with
Lincoln  In  1S5S, General  Wilson  was
the  editor of  the  Chicago Hecord.  a
journal of arts, and  literature,  which

I editor laid down his pen and went to
the   front,  and   was   soon   appointed
colonel  of  the fourth   United  Slates
colored cavalry.
Al the close of the war he was retired with the rank or brigadier-general, and resumed his literary work.
Many honors were Bhowered upon

After Arnold hnd turned traitor he
presented the links to his only friend
among the Kngiish officers, Col. Tar-

In   Days  ot   Old.
These were the days when the May-
feast was one of the biggest and greatest events of the year, and long before sunrise every village maid and
man rose and made his or her way
to the nearby woods and fields, where
the most exciting event of the whole
day, the raising of the maypole, took

lasted until daylight, and which were
very often carried to great excess, we

and, with a chosen company, rule forth
into the woods. Once he and the

"You meuii to do your hair plainly,"
said tho Incredulous, "1 mean real

four days later she left her father's

She Disappeared.
Princess Marya's cider brother
went in search of ber. He traced her
lo itostofi on Don, but she disappeared
before lie could git there. He discover, il that she had taken service as
kitchen maid wiih a lawyer, and that
tiie lawyer had found out who she was
and urgi d her to return home. As she
refused, he save her story to the news-
I papers.
Th ��� story was that she had been
moved by an irresistible Influence to
abandon worldly living. She bad come
to her decision gradually. All the winter while dancing, attending theatres,
'.nil driving in wild sledgo parties, she
bin! be< n brooding ou the Idea of simplification.
After she returned trom balls she
sat for hours In her bedroom reading
Tolstoy, questioning herself, and often torturing herself. The idea obsessed her. Once while dancing with
an aide-de-camp of Moscow's governor, she blurted into his ear. "Dive up
everything; abandon the world." Tho
iidc-de-camp thought she hnd a ner-

And bo the princess works. Naturally, a good-looking, refined girl cannot be mald-sorvant, hotel "bootl,"
and restaurant waitress without trouble. The princess complains that all

She does not mind It. "At Loskut-

Chance got his chance to show his
ability as a leader and executive In
a most democratic maimer���by tho
popular vole of his fellow players.
In 1905 Bobby Lowe, captain of the
Cubs, quit the team and left the captaincy vacant. The players were "ull
bet up" over the choice of a successor, and, to avoid hard feeling, the
management decided to let tbem decide  It  by   vote.
Casey and Kllng were the leading

However, a private member can bring
; In public bills with respect to man)
subjects.
Kor  instance,    a  private    member
! might bring in a bill to so amend the
criminal   code   as   to   abolish   capital
punishment.    This would be a public ,amendments  Have

would   havo   pledged   it   the   support
of the majority  that stands  behind
them, whereas, when Introduced by a
private member, it has only the support it can enlist without government
influence.
The Procedure Followed.
With respect to most essentials tho
procedure to be followed in the case
of public bills is almost the same as
that to be followed in lhe case if
private bills.
As a rule public bills are intro.In-
.ii upon motion, in the routine pro-
ceedlngn with which every sm.mi',
opens, tliere is a time for making tn.
motion which simply asks thai the
member be given leave to introduce
a bill, the title of which ia announced,
Twi. days' notice of the motion Is
g'tten, and when It Is presented .'. is
always adopted by the house without
debate.
The motion adopted, the lllll is as
once Introduced and the motion made
that It be read a first lime. If thy
bill is of general interest, an explanation in called for, and the membtJl
Introducing it explains its purposi
and general scope. If it Is a govern
ment bill It Is introduced by a minis
ter, and If it relates to general pol
Icy a full explanation is mad".
Ab a rule the bill is not deb-iten
at this stage, and after an explain!
tlon has been given the motion for
a firBt reading is put and practically
carried, although it is permissible to
divide the house and vote on a mb
Hon for a first reading. That, Inw
ever, Is seldom done.

The Committee Stage.
Of course the second reading ean
always be met by a square negation,
when opposed to the bill vote straight
against  It.
The second reading carried, the bill
reaches the committee stage and in
due time goes before the house sitting in committee of the whole. The
change from the house to the committee of the whole Is mnde in a
minute or less. The motion that the
house go into committee being adopted, the speaker leaves the chair.

removed from the table, the deputy

likes, provided his remarks a
vant-relate, to the point, Rut this
rule Is capable of beinK greatly abused, as has been shown by the days
land nights of obstruction that have
marred the proceedings of the house
during the  past  few  weeks.
In discussion tn committee the principle of the  bill  cannot  be  challenged,   because   lhat   has  been   accepted
by  tbe second  reading,  but. every  detail  can   be   challenged     and     effort

When  every  clause  lias been  passed, the committee' rises   that Is, the
speaker again takes hla chair and the
mace  is  returned  to  Its  place across
the foot of the table.    The chairman
or  deputy   speaker  then   reports  the
bll   to   the   speaker  stating   whether
r have  not  been
The report Is accepted, and the bill is entered on the
order  paper     for    a  third     reading,
which  will  not likely be  reached for j
Beveral  days.
When iho motion is made that the
bil  be  read  for a  third  time  amend- I
ments  cannot   be  made   except   of  a
verbal nautre, but. of course, the mo-
tlon  may   be  opposed,   but   it  unusual
to resist  tho motion for n third read-
nig.    The  third  reading  having  been ;
Dosed, the speaker puts this motion: ,
"That  the bill do now pais, and that !
the title be as in the order paper."
This mot nm having been adopted,
lie bill  completes lis course,  so far
as the house of commons is concerned.
The bill  i.i then reprinted,  with the
amendments mad" by tho house in-
serted in their proper places, and

The  progress  t f  lhe   bill   through
the senate Is, In essentials, similar ;
io Its progress through the house, as I
here dosorlbed.
Private Bills.
lt was said that tiie procedure wiih
respect   to ii  private bill  is somewhat
different. Tha two principle differences are these: A private bill comes
up first In the form of a petition, und |
sometime before the opening of a bcs-
Hlon notice must be given In the official gazette and In the publlc press I
that application for the legislation
Wlll be mnde to parliament.
These petitions for private legislation go before a committee on stand- :
ing orders, whose duty It Is lo nee
thut the proper notices have been glv- I
��� ti. and the rules compiled with If
the committee finds that everything
lis regular; the bills are Introduced,
read a first time, and then a second
time.    Then  private bills are sent to i
select standing committees that diB-1
cubs  them  In  detail,  and.  after they |
have been reported to the house, tbey '���
are taken up In    committee   of    the
whole house.
From that Stage they nre proceeded j
with as are public bills, whose pass-
ago through the liouee has already
been described lt Is by such pro- I
codiire as this, followed by the public,
assent of the governor-general that

In dealing with any subject In market gardening, the ftrBt and foremost
consideration is suitable soil for the i
subject under review Now to be au
brief as possible the subject of this ar
li'-l. rhubarb- requires **. good and
rich a soil as circumstances will al
low.
The Ideal soil for rl ttbarb cultl/a-
ti"n Is one containing plenty of huniut
tbut Ib one with as much as possible
decaying vegetable matter, or In other
words a soil tbat is well manured Al-
fo, another very ii'-cessary point is \
that the ground where rhubarb Is tol
be grown succePt-fuily should be ���, ill
ttvattd to i depth of at least twelve
i.i iiea, m re if possible.
Should the soil be of a peaty nature, shallower cultivation might
prove BUccesBful, but, whatever soil
one may have, It Ib essential that It
be  well  manured.
Should thn land have been under
cultivation previously with cabbage,
potatofH. or any other green crop, so
much lhe better for a foundation soil
fm- th" rhubarb,
Selecting Ycur Steel'.
The next important thing (nfter
having the soil In suitable condition I
Is the procuring of sti.ck. In selecting rhubarb stock for market purposes, there are two very Important,
in fact essential, points; we must
have good colored, red and strong-
growing varieties.
Let us devote now a little space
to methods (f propagating, or getting
up a stock of rhubarb quickly.
First, let us take propagation by
division of roots. These stock roots
should be procured from a reliable
grower and be of the best type, both
ns to color of stem and strength of
growth, and be from two to three
years old. They can then at once
be divided up into single eyes, and
It is necessary to see that ech division made has one eye or crown
from which springs the growth.
These eyes planted ln rows IS inches anart and three feet between
Ithe row-B will, with good cultivation,
become In two years forcing crowns,
fare must be taken to see thai noth-
ine: Is pulled cf them the first year
after division.
I    Another method of getting up stock
lis  by  seed;   and  the most  Important
point   to   note   in   this  method  is  to
| be sure and sectre a first class strain
( f   the   best   seed.
Next, be careful that the ground
Is ln proper condition for sowing;
then sow In rows two feet apart.
Make the trench fo rseed nol deeper
than one inch below the ground level
so lhat the seed has no more than
i ������������ Inch of Boll covering It when raked   over.
Keep Wc-��'ts Dr-vn.
The seed should germinnte in
about two weeks. Care must be taken to keep the ground free from
weeds until the young plants are
about six inches high, when they
should be thinned out to about one
foot   apart.
lu ttiinnlig out care should be taken to select the best colored seedling. The ones with the reddest
stocks should be allowed to remain,
discarding the ones showing too
green a slock. Another method of
propagation by seed Is to sow in rows
two feet apart and at a distance of
one foot In each row make a small
hole one Inch deep nnd four Inches
In diameter Into which place four or
six  seeds.
When about six inches high select
the finest looking plant out of each
ring of seedlings and weed out the
others. This method, although taking a little more time, is often to
be preferred, ensuring a good, Bound,
selected   stock.
Rhubarb grown and treated as
above should, at the end of the sea-
! son. be good sized plants or crowns
and ready by the end of October to
be transplanted to Its permanent quar
, tors. In transplanting, lift carefully
and  plant   In   rowB  three  feet   apart,

Cinerarias come In purple, violet,

is rather interesting, both from the
point of view of the derivation of
the name and the native Boil from
which  the  plant springs.
The name is derived from the Latin word "clncrarius," pertaining to
ashes. South Africa is the country
in which these plants thrive best In

Vancouver, April 27.-Judgment
was Blgned by Chief Justice Hunter
In chambers Friday In favor of Dr.
J. II. Wasson, of William Head, against the Bankers' Trust Company.
The Judgment was for the cancellation for the subscription of shares
and the return of notes given In payment. The motion for Judgment made
by H. I). Twigg lu behalf of these
shareholders was before the Chief
Justice some days ago and he enlarged the motion for the purpose of giving the defense an opportunity to
make an explanation of tho affidavit
of the directors ln their petition for
winding up.
In this affidavit they swore that
they got their shares by misrepresentation. No explanation was forthcoming, Mr. H. A. McLean, counsel
for the Hankers' Trust, announced,
and Judgment was signed.
'A revelation which came out at the
conspiracy   trial   In  the  police  court I
was a statement that J. H. Baker re- j
celved a cheque for fifty dollars from I
J. C. Hearn, of the Negotiators, Limited, as his  remuneration for his as-'
sistence In  selling stock in the  Hrit- j
Ish  Columbia     Fir,e  Insurance    ("om-1
pany.   of   which   he   was   a  director.
He  also  admitted   going  with   Hearn
and  Cook  to  Interview  people about!
buying Bankers'  Trust  stock.
He said  he didn't know there was
a credit of $2000* for him on the books
Of  the  Negotiators    for    these    ser- j
vices.   He said that Cook and Moore
had  made  proposals  to him  that  he I
get  remuneration  for assisting  them
In  Belling  stock,  but he denied  that
his efforts  to  sell stock  to Christo-!
pher Moses.  Noah  Shakespeare,  Hob-
ert  Hetherington and A. O. Sargison
were for the purpose of obtaining a
commission,
He   denied   that   he   had   accepted
any of the proposals by Moore, Hearn
and Cook that he take a commission, j
Whatever efforts he had made to sell '
stock  had  been  entirely  without any
��������� thought of reward in this way.    He I
now had simply  wanted these men on the
tui*.   director's   board   with   him,     Moorci
had   told   him   that   the  qualification
for director was four hundred shares,
palm  ���*���*���  **e ^ad  taken only  tvvo hundred.
'll,..      Moore  had   said that  he  could   fix

valuable where wav and he ���*&** become a director.    ,
Reviewing to the meeting at which V
Cook  resigned  as  vice-president.   Ha-1
all"tiie ker said that Cook had explained hia;
fronds-  steP  hy   saying   that  as  some   other j
into company with which he was connected had gone  to the wall It would be
better  for  the  Bankers' Trust  lf  he
stepped  out.
He had said, however, that lh')
Bankers' Trust was his own pet company, and it was his baby, that he
was putting his heart into it and loved It and was going to continue to do
so and would make it the grandest
Institution in Victoria. Although
was resigning his office he intended
to stick to his pet and work for
always.
Baker said that when he was approached to buy stock, Moore. Hearn
and Cook had all made representations to him. These representations
related to the dividend, the earning
in Vancouver and what they intended to do in Victoria. They were slmi-
larto all those narrated by other witnesses. He had completed his purchase  through   Moore.
