The Japanese of California have about proved that
thej are above or beyond law, not because their position
is unassailable, but because their wit so far evidently has
been more than sufficient to outflank the legislators who,
by passing an anti-alien land bill, thought to rid the Golden
Gate state of what they considered a pest.
Unfortunately for the success of the measure, which
has caused the Washington government not a little worry
;inil which has drawn a direct protest from Tokio, the
men who framed it made it applicable only to land ownership by individual Japanese and the brown hordes have
seized the opportunity left open to incorporate and thus
escape coming under the new regulations shortly to go
into effect
The net result is that, so far as its aims to prevent Japanese from owning California soil goes, the anti-alien
law is a complete failure.   The spirit of the measure still nIIinK conclusion to a briiuani .-erics.

Apples t.oxed to Washington, Idaho.

protested against Hits alleged discrimination In favor of the American prod
uet. Buyers, they said, unfamiliar
with distinct:.ins in the Iruit irade
thought that American apples marked
"choice" were tlrst grade, and this enabled the American grower to market
liis third grade at low prices in unfair
competition with Canadian llrst grade,
Canadian dealers handling American
apples argued thai the discrimination
was nominal, and not real, since, us

most of the Canadian pack thai is

The Dominion government, however, took the side of the home grower. At a recent meeting of the directors of the liritish Columbia Prul!
Growers' association notification wis
received fr ml Ottawa that amendments to the fruit marks act regulations regarding the marketing of imported fruit, on which polnl a committee of the association waited on the
Dominion government last winter, had
been given effect by an order-ln-cnun-
eii passed   n July 5.
The directors consider the new regulations satisfactory, and say Unit "nn
Injustice has been removed, as with
the enforcement of the amendments
American fruit will be sold under
identlraly tlie same grade marks as

Montreal. Aug. 8.-���Contending that
Alderman Mederic Martin was right,
and that he acted within his powers,
tlle efty law department will file Its
defence in tlie action taken In upset
llie Montreal and Southern Countle-S
Railway bylaw. It was this bvlaw
which Alderman Martin signed in tin*
absence of the mayor. The mayor
had previously refused to sign thin
ou the  ground  that  it  was Illegal.
"There has been discussion enough"
Aid. Martin said when the i|iiest on

Shortly afterwards, action was taken in the superior courl by Donald
o' Hobinson, a shareholder in the Mon
treal Tramways, lo have the bylaw
annulled on the ground tliat Mr. Martin hud acted beyond his powers, ami
that the bylaw was Illegal. He acted
it was contended, "illegally and without any legal right and In violation
of tlle charter of the city ot Montreal," Further, Mr. Hobinson claimed, tlle Montreal Tramways held the
franchise bo far as street cars were
concerned, and In fore llneB could be
laid on Youville Bquaro by the Montreal and Southern Counties railway |
las is provided by the bylaw) the.
Tramways company was entitled to a.
prior offer.
"The bylaw," the plea claims, "is
perfectly legal und in full force and
was adopted by the city council after
all the formalities required by law '���
and notably by the charter of the city
of Montreal and iu the public Interest.
"lt Ib true that his honor the mayor
refused to approve the Baid bylaw,
but lt waB signed by Mederic Martin,
acting in the absence of the mayor
as pro-mayor, or of mayor in office
during said absence and actinx with
same powers and the same authority
as tbe mayor and ln bo doing he act
ed in publlc interest and in the exe-
cu'.ion of his legal duties and func- \
tlons. f~
; "The city waB perfectly entitled to
grant the franchise it had granted to j
the Montreal and Southern Counties
Railway company wtthoul being obliged previously to offer the aaid
franchise lo the Montreal Tramways
"The petitioner haB no direct    and
valuable Interest lo seek ln the present position, but on the contrary he
is acting against the public interest."
A   Remarkable   Point
This opinion of the  city  legal  de
partment   brings   the   discussion  over
the   bylaw   to   a   remarkable    point.
Mayor  Lavallee declined  to sign  the
paper  on   the   ground   thai   it   was   illegal;    Alderman   Meredlc   Martin,   In
' his   absence,   signs   lt - and    the   cltv
law   department   finds  lhat   his  action
was legal ami In lln- public Interest
Since   tlie   bylaw   was  sign. d.  it   was
staled.   Mayor   Lavallee   bus   declined
to sign the notarial contract between
the city and the Montreal and South-
ern  Counties Railway company under
which'the  company   can  proceed   to
work.     His ground  is that  the bylaw-
was   illegal.
if." he remarked bei,re lie lef
for the west, "the bylaw was illegal
before it is illegal still. The signature of Aid. Martin made no differ
ence. lt could not make an Illegal
thing   legal."
When Mayor Lavallee comes to n
meeting of the city council there Is
likely to lie some close questioning.
Under tlie charter tlle mavor is r"
quired to give his reasons within
thirty days for withholding his sW-
i.'itere and this, members of the coun-
cl lu Id. he litis not  dene.
The contracts which Aid. Mart'n

about   twenty   yeurs,   Hev-.   Mr.   Sharp
lias a host of friends who are still here,
to welcome hlm     As a young man he
will  be  remembered  as a  member of
lhe  Slmcoe  street   Methodist   church,
in which lie also held the office of an
exhorter.    At  the same time, he was
employed   In  earning  his  livlu-g as a
conductor on th-s Hamilton street railway, and it  was in  this capacity that
he  came  in  for no little distinction
and popularity.
At the time be was engaged with
the street railway company, trouble
occurred between the employees and
the company, nnd a strike was threatened, and for a time matters had a
very serious aspect. The mediation
of the olhclils of the labor organize-1
lions was offered, but the men preferred to settle the differences between
the company and themselves, and selected Mr. Sharp as chairman of the
commltti e,
In conenctlon wltb the trouble It will
be remembered that ll very large mass
meeting was held at the Core, where
lt was estimated that 10.000 men,
women and children gathered. Mr.
Sharp presided, and In his address
told the gathering that the men were
going lo adopt the golden rule In the
settlement r{ their difficulties and
when this was done the trouble was
straightened cut in short order.
Later on Mr. Sharp lost IiIb position
with the company, and in speaking of
the matter expr- BSed the opinion that
it was (lie best thing that could have
happened to him Afu-r losing his position. Mr. Sharp cast himself about
to do better, nnd on the advice of his
uncle, wVo was In the ministry of the
Methodist Kpirconal church, he wns
persuaded lo take up that work, and to
this end he went to the Detroit enn.

no doubt aa to the opinion of tho commissioners regarding the running ot

education  what  W,   H.   Forster's  act
of  1870  did   for   the  elementary  sule.
and will be quite the biggest change
as i-since that date,    lt will be as costly
as It will  be large.    It  means an increase of some millions 10 Ihe annual
! expenditure of  the  Btate  and  of  the
I local authorities.    Taking the coat:
1. Rating limits imposed on local
authorities will be removed.
2. The slate will progressively
make large and substantial grants
year   by   year   In   additln   to   present
..���asl  grants.
The ��� 3. Areas and not schools will be
1 the educational units, differentiated
according to wealth or poverty and
according to laxity or zenl in education.
4. There wlll be three grants: la)
a principal grant to each area for its
efficiency, and If it raises a minimum
rate; ib) a supplementary grunt ln
proportion to all expenditure above
a minimum; (cl a grant In aid of
loan charges In connection with any
kind of education.
in respect of elementary education
the grievance of single school areas
'.will be. redressed. Local authorities
will be required to provide nurseries,
playing fields, baths and clinics for
scholars; tuid meals for poor children
on Sundays and holidays us well as
on school days.
Intermediate  education   wlll  be  affected  in an attempt to smooth and
broaden  the  way  to  It   from  the elementary   school.     Kvery   county  and
county  borougb   will   lie  required  to
formulate    a    complete    progressive
scheme to that end. providing for Intermediate education  as   freely  us  in
the  case  of  elementary    education,
Such schemes will nave to co-ordinate
all types of schools  technical, second
ary and trade.    In this it is expected
that   a   strong   blow    will    be   struck
at private schools,  which  Mr   Pease
described as "Cavendish Academies."

Lieut Slfton is the son of Hon.
Clifford Sifton, a wealthy Canadian,
formerly minister of the interior in
the lute Liberal government.
Lieut. Sifton has un International
reputation us a horseman and first
met his bride at the last international
horse bIiow in Loudon, where hc
showed as Captain of the Canadian
military  team.
Who Bride is
Mrs. Slfton is tlie daughter of the
lato Andrew Donaldson, formerly an
importer, and vice-president of the
Erie railroad. She bas had pretty
much of a romantic existence. She
was a favorite of the telephone girl at
tbe Dorchester Riverside drive aud
Eighty-fifth street, where the Donaldsons lived, and when the latter over
heard MrB. Donaldson, her mother,
tell a relative Bhe was going to send
Jean to the convent to school to separate her from young Kirwan. thc
operator acquainted Miss Donaldson
with tlie facts. She passed them on
to Kirwan, who is the son of a New
York real estate broker. The pair
then eloped and were married.    After
asked  of one  of the   detectives.
"Dill a pickpocket ever appear for
trial when lie W'us once allowed oul
on  bail."  was the caustic  rejolner.
The detective added that a person
who understood police work should
have known better than grant b..-*
ln such  cases.

Seattle, Aug. 8. More than twenty
taxpayers, representing various civic
organizations, were present in the*
council chambers on Wednesday to i
present their argum-ants for holding
down the city's expense account for
the coming year when the council began its wnrk on the budget for 1914,
Tbey urged iiie council to "eliminate
nil unnecessary expense,, cut out all
dead timber and reduce Seattle's ei-
penses for 11)14 to Ihe least possible
,imi.tint, In order tiiat the cily lie not
j advertised to the world as a place
where taxes are beyond all reason, and
municipal expenses and local Improvements made an excuse for high taxa-
ti n."
Judge Thomas Iturke was the first of
tbe lobby to address tin- council be-
fiir.- it took up its official work. He
told the city officials ihat be never
lufore had appeared befure a taxation
committee, but thai prevailing conditions had prompted him to come before them.
Warning From Judge Curke.
"A few days ago while coining Into
the olty   I  overheard  a  conversation
iu tin* observation car," Judge Burke
said.     "The   speakers   declared   that
Seattle v.as in a bad way as regards|
taxation;   thai   the city's credit  was
linking; that the rate of taxation was'
unprecedented  and  that   it  was  pro-
posed  to  raise the rate for next year
t i ir, mills.   'We have eliminated ibis
city  as a  possible  place for  Investment,' the speaker said,
"The Btatement that our tax levy
is based on a full valuation of all city
based on a full valuation of all city
property," Judge Burke declared. "If
this word goes out to the world it will
bi a check on Investments in this city
for homes. ,,r for business men to
carry On tbelr shoulders. That man
on the our lhe Other tlay simply voiced
the opinion of everv prudent resident
ol this citv.
'Our rut" nf taxation for nexl year,
unless we are very careful, will be
11.81 cents nn every man. wnmnn and
child, estimating the population at
276,000- not for Improvement work,
simply for wages and salaries of city
employees. This is the worst possible
reputation a city can have, and we
are all to blame for it."

Calgary, Aug. S. "There Ib something over a million dollars available for carrying on the city work,"
states Alderman Carscallen, "and under present arrangements we are satisfied the amount We have in hand will

"I consider the city's finances are in
the best shape of any city in western I
Canada, with the possible exception of
Winnipeg," Bald Mayor Sinnctt. on
tiie day of his departure for the east,
"and 1 think thai the fact that Winnipeg is in better shape than we are if
inch is the case, is due t.i its recent
s.il" of bonds."
Whin' the beads of the city govern-
ipiint are not disposed to be boastful,
I they express patlsfactlon with the condition  in  which  they  have heen  able
i to keep the finances and while    re-,
trenchment   is  the  order of the day,
nothing thai, requires being done is being lefl undone because of any lack of
Finances   All   Right.
It ts merely a case of eare being ex-

Commissioner   Samis   brought   up   the
question at the commissioners' mot-ting stating  he  wanted  to know  what
im ney   was   on   hand     before     going
ahead  with  the  work  he  had  planned
iand a meeting of the  lnance committee  was  accordingly  arranged.    Fro- i
'tiding on this basis and  in view of
the very  satisfactory t'tate of the ex-
Thequer, tt Is felt around the city hall*
that   Calgary   will   pull   through   the
I present   depression   without     meeting
jthe   difficulties   that   ire   confronting
������other cities.
"While other cities, as we learn from
i Ihe papers, are closing down work and
are no doubt in a bad way financially,
it is gratifying to find ourselves ln
such good circumstances." said Aact-

lt  is also encouraging to be told
lhat the month of .lune. 1918, was the
nrgrft in the history of the city of
Calgary in (he manor of the amount
of money paid out tor the services of

ONCE when King Edward VTI. paid a visit to Sheffield,
all the fires in factories and plants were allowed to
die out. Not a wheel in Sheffield turned for twenty-
four hours. CI, The primary object of this was to lift the
pall of smoke that hovers over that wonderful steel-producing city, and to ensure, as far as man was able, a bright day
nnd a blue sky for an auspicious occasion. Clt waa
Sheffield's expression of respect.
BUT the action was unique���it was unprecedented���it
was unthought of that those hundreds of mighty
furnaces, raging night and day, and those seething
boilers, with quivering valves, should ever be allowed to
cool. C This extinguishing of fires cost Sheffield hundreds
of thousands of dollars���the price of thr, effort to get back
r..'.ii:i to high-power efficiency.
SOME business men in Canada pay an unwitting homage,
not toa king, but to a superstition���the superstition
' tliat hot weather justifies letting the fires of business
energy go out. They stop Advertising in the Summer
months. By paying homage to tradition, custom, supersti'
tion, they have allowed Summer to become their "dull"
season. CYofi know how dull it can be when you don't
advertise. Do you know how brisk it can be made by
Advertising ? Do you realize how much momentum you
now lose in the Summer that must be regained in the Fall ?

other countries  in  the estimation  of I
Joe  Lazzra.    Joe  was eerved  with  a
summons on July 19 to appear in court
on  July  21   to explain  the  reason  of
his peddling linen goods on Columbia
Btreet without a traders' license. The j
blue  paper did  not appeal  to  Lazzra
and  after  giving  a fictitious  address
in  Vancouver, he failed  to appear at
the   appointed  time.    Magistrate   Kdmonds issued a bench warrant, but it
was    only     yesterday  that  Detective
Burrows cast his lamps on the Italian.
The   Vancouver   police   assisted   and
Joe's friends had to come to his assistance   with   the  sum  of  $50   before
j he  could  be  liberated   from   the  city
Ibasllle.    He will explain  his absence
to the court at 9:30 this morning, also
the alleged hawking charge.
