System of Agricultural Credits and Would Help Workers to Acquire Fortunes.
Ottawa, Ont, Feb. 12.���The last
short Wedneaday sitting of the session was given over entirely to the
discussion of a proposal by Mr. Arthur
Meighen, conservative member for
Portage La Prairie, that there should
be established In Canada a aystem of
agricultural credits.
Mr. Meighen In a long speech which
bore evidence of the most careful consideration and preparation beld the
attention of the house. He reviewed
the banking system ot tbe Dominion
and many other countries. From the
European banking system he drew the
lesson that agricultural credits do not

communities in Canada marka Inflicted by tbe preaent system ot bank
"Our branch banks are off-shoots,"
said Mr. Meighen. "They belong and
are controlled absolutely by the head
offices and they act on the dictates
of the head offices, which has ita advantages, no doubt, but also carries
with It great disadvantages which It
is my duty to bring forward at this
In Other Lands.
Mr. Meighen proceeded to compare
the banking system of Canada with
suffer because of the existence of co-  that of the other countries.   He point-
operative banks and credit security.
His suggestion waa that parliamentary sanction should be given to
legislation which has already been
considered by the house and which
would provide the machinery throughout the country for the institution of
co-operative, credit banks.
The result would be, he said, that
instead of money being controlled by
the head office of the comparatively
few banks that do business In Canada,
there would be retained in each community an amount of currency and
capital sufficient to provide for the
essential needs of the locality.
White Is Agreeable.
Hon. T. W. White, minister of
finance,   congratulated   Mr.   Meighen
ed out that Canada Is the most prom
lnent example In the world of a country with the branch bank system since
tbere are 2,800 branch banks controlled by a comparatively small number of central banks, and the number
of these central banks decreasing.
ln Great Britain, be aald, there are
6,000 bank branches of 116 banks, a
number smaller in proportion to the
population than in the case of Canada.
The remedy which Mr. Mieghen
suggested for our present system was
not a new   one to the   house.    He
atton had shown Itself to be sucb as
to shield the bank against loss, having the added ramparts of geographical limitation.
Mr. Meighen stated that the committee had taken up ln the house the
subject la 1906 and 1907 and that
none of the evidence had thrown any
doubt upon the applicability of the
aystem to Canada. As a consequence
a bill had been Introduced which,
however, had failed to pass the upper
He said that credit was the basis
upon which our commercial progress
was built. Under the present banking system it was denied the poor
classes. They do not and cannot secure the credit to which their honesty
entitles them.
Help the Worker*.
He would like to see our banking
system extended so as .to give credit
potentialities to the poor classes. In
his opinion, tt was the plain duty of
the house to extend the financial
credit to the humbler classes, who
number tbe majority of the people of
tbls country.

A telegram from the city's ablicitoi

It bas yet to be formally ratified by
the Senate. The boundaries have
been altered and are defined in the
amended bill as from the east side
of Douglas Island to tbe mouth of the
Fraser, excluding the North Arm west
of the city's western limits. Mayor
Gray has wired for further particulars.
In connection with tbe harbor
scheme tbe mayor recently had a let
ter from Mr. A. Hardman, now staying
ln Whittier, California, requesting him
to forward copies of the harbor plans,

Plan Hae Succeeded.
Mr. Meighen proceeded to gtve figure* indicating tho success of the
system in European countries.
In Germany there were ao less than
from 16,000 to 20,000 co-operative
bunks, and loana In 1909 had amounted to $4,(89,000, or five times the

Mr. Meighen said that he had tried
to find out the amount loaned to
farmers in Canada, but tbe figures
were impossible to secure. The
monetary commission of the United
States estimated tbat the farmers had
loans of 6,000,000,000 and paid interest to the extent of $610,000,000.
Mr. Meighen estimated that the
| amount ln Canada reached 9750,000.
The commission estimated tbat the
rate of interest'in the United States
was 8H Per cent and in Canada it
averages 6 per cent. Many farmers
I were paying 9 or even 10 per cent on
first mortgages. He contrasted this
rate of Interest with tbe rate paid In
Europe, which was only 3 to 4 per
cent In this country tbe commercial
rate was lower then the rate paid by
In Europe the contrary viis true. If
tbey reduced tho rate only by one
per cent they would effect a saving
to tbe country of 17,600,000.

The present banks had nothing to

there waa a successful cooperative

The announcement from Ottawa.that the New West
minister Harbor Bill passed the Dominion House of Commons on Tuesday evening will be received with wholehearted satisfaction by the people of this city and of thc
territory in thc valley which it affects.
This territory, as far as can be gathered from the
brief notice received in the city, takes in the whole of
the South Arm, that part of the North Arm to which the
city's boundaries are contiguous, and upstream from the
city as far as the upper end of Douglas Island, which lies
off the confluence of the Pitt with the Fraser.
It will be of great interest to know whether or not
the New Westminster commission will control the waters
of the Pitt, but, at the moment of writing, this informa
tion has not come to hand.
From this turn of events it appears that the oppo.-i
tion which we recently noted as having shown itself last
week, was possibly due to the desire of Liberal members
to acquaint themselves more accurately with what it was
proposed to do in reference to a river whose immediate
importance to the Dominion is fully recognized by all
who are following the trend of world events.
We may now trust that the bill will meet with calm
waters in the councils cf thc upper house and that it will,
with as little delay as possible, become law. This done,
there will be no lingering upon the part of New Westminster in putting in the foundations of the great harbor
work for whose consummation she has so long hoped and
for which her citizens have so faithfully worked. In
this latter connection we would here commend the service
that has been rendered to the city and the valley by our
present member in the Dominion House, Mr. J. D. Taylor.
So eager are young Australians to
train for the Commonwealth navy
that candidates for the Iloyal Navy
���College were selected by ballot. It
seems that in the Commonwealth
there were those who anticipated and1
asserted that aoa eervlce would be unpopular.
'Ihey have teen proved wrong in
their surmise, and there is as little
reason to believe that the service
would not have equal appeal in Canada.
The Australian Government has
taken pains to ensure that the lads
entering service on the training ship
are made comfortable, so that the sea
service shall be constantly popular.
Pay rates on the training ship have
teen fixed at $2.62 per week for first-
class, and $1.75 per week second-class.
Pocket money on account of service
pay is allowed on scale ranging up to
��0c weekly, and the balance Is placed
to the credit of each boy iu the Commonwealth bank.

Witchcraft In America.
The first American divine of any
prominence to publicly proclaim his
bel,ef in witchcraft was the Itev. Cotton Mather, who died IS") years ago
tfday, Feb.* 1.1, 172S. Mather's super-
t.ticu3 diatribes against witches wore
scattered broadcast among the people,
and bore terrible fruit. The English
colonists in America early adopted
laws against demonology, hut executions were rare until Mather appeared and fired thc people to a frenzy
of destruction.
Preaching from the Bible text,
"Thou shait Not Suffer a Witch to
Live," the credulous parson gained
:nany adherents to his crusade. Standing in hl�� pulpit, with arms extended,
ho thundered, "Witchcraft ls the most
itfarlous high treason against the
Majesty on high. A witch Is not to
be endured on heaven or earth." His
first victim was an Irishwoman, a Roman Catholic, who was accused of
having bewitched a young girl In
Salem. The pious Cotton had the plea
sure of seeing her hanged. In 1692
an epidemic disease broke out In Salem, and the ailment was ascribed
to the evil machinations of poor and
old women.
During the prevalence of this delusion nineteen persons were hanged,
one woman was pressed to death, fifty-five were tortured into confessions
of guilt, and 130 were Imprisoned.
Practically all the colonial offlclnls
and clergy took part in the crusade
and onlv a few "pestiferous infidels"
protested against the outrages, and
these shared the fate of the unbeliev
ers'of all ages.
Cotton Mather continued to preach
witchcraft until his death, hut most
^t the ministers and officials soon
saw a great light and the murder of
old women "for the Glory ot God" wai
ner, the eminent German operatic
composer, whose centenary will bo
celebrated throughout the musical
world  next spring.
Wagner was born in Lepsic on May
22, 1813. During his young manhood
he was a conductor of orchestras. He
was 28 when he composed his "Rieu-
zi" and "Der Fllgende Hollander,"
("Flying Dutchman") which brought
him some prominenca as a composer.
"Tannhauser" appeared in 184.">. "I,o
hengrin" five years later, and "Trie
tan and Isolde" in 1865.
The dales of his subsequent works
are as follows: "Melsterslnger" 1868;
"Die Walkure," 1870; "Siegfried," in
1876; "Die Gotterdainmerung," 1876,
and "Parsifal," tho crowning work ot
his life, 1882.

Upon this date in the year 1892.
died the venerable admiral of the fleet
of England���Sir Provo Parry Wallis
���in his 101st year.
He was a Nova Scotian, having been
born iu a house in tlie navy yard ai
Hal fax. His father, while he was stili
a little child, had his name entered
on the hooks of different ships, and
after a breif period of schooling in
England, he went to sea as a midshipman at the age of thirteen. This was
In 1804, when Napoleon's wars were
raging. Wallis had varied experiences of shipwreck and battle. He was
second lientpnant on Hroke's ship
"the Shannon" in 1813, when that ves
-el fought her famous duel with the
American "Chesapeake." and. as Cap
tain Rrotfe was seriously wounded and
tho first lieutenant wai killed. It fell
to Wallis (then only 22) to take the
"Shannon" and her prize Into the har
bor of his birthplace.
Owing to foggy weather the voyage
lasted six days, and the woung off!

In the church calendar todav Is
sacred to the memory of St. Catherine

works of piety, charity and mercy ln

Boston physicians are said to have
discovered a new disease, which they
call "nuto knee." As the name implies, the disease Ib caused by riding
in automobiles. From disuse the
knee Joints become weak, and collapse readily under a slight strain.
lt must bo said that a certain class
of doctor is more expert at discovering new diseases, especially if its
victiniB are people of wealth, than at
eradicating the old diseases. It Is
certain that those who discovered the
auto knee will discover some other
cure for it besides walking.
There will be medicine In the new
treatment and massage, and probably X rays, and a good deal of expensive doctoring, wc may be sure. As a
rule, the most devoted motorists spend
more time with their knees cramped
under n desk at the office than in
their automobiles. Moreovir, theli
ancestors for a generation or two an
likely to have cramped their legB for
two or three hours a day at work or at
home, to say nothing of exposing
themselves to "auto knee" by buggy
driving on Sundays.
That people nowadays ride too much
and walk too little Ib not to be gainsaid. The street carB have heen the
most active agent In destroying the
old habit of walking. Most of us
would complain that we were "out of

Bank of France, 113 Years Old Today,

One of the greatest and most democratic of the world's financial instl
tutions is the Bank of France, which
today celebrates Its 113th birthday.
Founded by Napoleon, ln Its present
form, on Feb. 13, 1800, it financed
many cf the gigantic schemes of the
ambitious Man of Destiny, lt has always been a joint stock company,
and its original capital was thirty
million francs, or about -$6,000,000.
The capital has been graduallv In
creased, until lt Is now 182,000,000
francs, or over $36,000,000, but lt retains Its original form of a joint stock
company. Napoleon headed tbe sub
scrlption list for the bank with thirty
shares. The stockholders now number
about 32,000, and one-third of them
are poor folks, laborers and thrifty
shop-keepers, who own only one share
each, while fully half of the ���burs-
holders have no more than two shares
The face value of Bank of France

Beef  Raiser Thinks Burrell  Has Discriminated In Favor of Dairying Interests.
Toronto, Feb. 12.���At the presidents address at the annual meeting of
,ho Dominion Shorthorn Breeders' association, held in the Temple Building last week, Mr. Peter White, K.C.,
strongly protested against the recent
action of the Dominion government In
passing an order compelling tho sub
mission of cattle entering British Columbia to be submitted to a tuberculin test.
"1 trust this order will be withdrawn padding the development of
some broad general policy upplicablo
to tile whole Dominion," he observed
after explaining that it *.vas enforced
..nly in britiah Columbia.
in connection with the grant of $10,-

Hen. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, had shown "partiallalty to
the dairying Interests for purely poli-
t cal reasons," and considered It high
t me the beef raisers brought their
claims to the attention of the minister and demanded an expenditure at
least equal to that given to the dairymen, i
Shorthorn Performances.
An Important discussion took place
regarding tbe evolution of a better
type of dual purpose cow, following
which an appropriate resolution, moved by Mr. W. Dryden, was unanimously carried. The resolution ni*
proved tlie establishment of a records
branch of the department of agriculture for thn purpose of securing re-
liable information regarding the milk!
production of various breeds of cattle,
and continued: "That this aaaoclation expresses its desire to receive
the assistance and co-operation of the
Dominion department of agriculture
in  establishing and    maintaining    a
record of rierrorrnanc-B list for shorts
horn cattle duly recorded In the ('ana-

A Curious Custom.
In fecandinavia the wedding shirt is
sn important part ai-the husband's
marriage outfit. It is usual for the
groom, among other gifts, to bestow,
upon his bride a prayer book. In re-.
eiprocation she gives him a neatly embroidered shirt, and this he invariably
wears on his wedding day. Afterward
he pmts it away and does not wear it)
again while alive, but he wears it in;
his grave. The Scandinavian widower
must.-destroy, -on the eve <*>( his second'
marriage, the wedding shirt which hia,

Further Anecdotes About tiie Valiant
Old  Liberal  Fighter.
People are very busy discussing the
volume  of  Sir  Richard  Cartwri^ht's
reminiscences, especially the portions
that lampoon  the  great  men  of  his
day.  The tamoua statesman has prob-
I ably  left out one anecdote  which  is
told about him  in  western  Ontario.
There was a time in his career when
he  did  not  have  a  constituency  to
send him to Parliament.   His party
j had been looking out for one, and a
I vacancy occurred in a riding out near
! Guelph.    It was considered a  likely
'; one. and Sir Richard went out to lock
over the ground.
The member for the local House,
who happened to be a Liberal,
brought him a piece of good news.
One of the most influential Conservatives in the neighborhood had quarreled with the candidate, and as Sir
Richard knew him personally, there
seemed to be a chance to win him
over. They decided to go and call.
The man whom they sought greeted
them in his garden, but his manner
was not too cordial. There was a
little natural restraint ail round, but
while they were talking a "gentleman-
of-the road" came in to ask financial
aid. He was ordered nut, and tho incident suggested a remark to Bit
"You don't appear to approve of
tramps," he said.
"No," replied the Conservative,
"political or otherwise."
That ended the interview.
The very uncomplimentary comments upon Hon. Edward Blake contained in the new book have astonished a great many persons. They fit In
with a story that ha9 been going the
rounds, and the two things go to show
that the Blakes and Sir Richard were
not particularly fond of one another.
People may have noticed that no local
paper contained any tribute to the
dead statesman from Hon. Samuel
Blake. It is explained that one person approached the great champion ot
Protestantism, and that the following
rpply was given to him by the person
who received his message: "Mr.
Blake's opinion of Sir Richard Cart-
wright during his lifetime was such
that he would rather not comment upon him uow that he is dead.''

Before a crowd of several hundred
wildly enthusiastic spectators tho
Sapperton hockey team defeated, the
Circle F septette at the arena last
evening to the tune of two goals tu
Tbe event, however, was marred by
an unfortunate Incident, for, with thc
two teams tied with one goal each to
their credit, the Kraser Mills outfit
refused to continue the game as called
for by all amateur league rules, where
the loams are tied. After the crowd
had been cleared from the Ice Eddie
McCarty faced oil the puck to the
blue shirts, wbo had only to slam the
rubber Into an empty net.
Forgetting the ending, which every
one deplored, the game Itself was the
most exciting that one could wish te
see. thc big enclosure being filled with
a madly yelling crowd hailing from
Sapperton and Millside and also a big
delegation from the other districts of
the city.
Stiff Chrck ng.
Although the speed was none too
fast the checking was stiff at all
���stages and thc brilliant work of both
goal guardians staved off shot after
shot, no score being registered in thc
first of the two periods.
Thu second period started with a
rush and after seven minutes of play
lloih-aii, for the 1 teiichmnn, opened
the scoring with a close In shot. Tbls
ah. wed the Millside delegation to
let loose and for a few minutes tbe
referee's whistle could not be heard

Apparently the day of upsets ln the
N. 11. A. has not yet passed for the
usual surprises were handed out to
the fans last evening ln at least two
of the three games.
Perhaps the biggest upset of the
evening waa the defeat of Tecumsehs
at Ottawa, the Hvtown aggregation
running up a score ot 11 goals while
handing a nice thick coat of kalso
mine to. the Indians. The latter were
now .tp th* running and ak-eir forwards were pulled up before they had
a chance to score.
Quebec held on to Its two goal?
lead by defeating Toronto on their
own Ice by 11 goals to 2.
The feature game of the day, how
ever, was tbat between the Canadiens
and the Wanderers, tho former win
nlng out, 6 goals to 4. The two teams
were tied for second place and this
gives the Frenchmen a Blight lead, al
though they are still two games behind tbe Stanley eupholders.
Hockey fans of the coast will have
the optiortunlty of sizing up the dillei-
ence between the seven man and six
man hockey at Vancouver on Saturday evening when Westminster and
Vancouver clash once more In the
race for the coast chamrlonshlp.
The decision to change from the
seven man game to that which Is
more spectacular (from a spectators
viewpoint) was made at Victoria yes
terday when delegates from each of
the three clubs were present.
Last winter the Vancouver and
Westminster fans were enabled to
get a peep at the eastern style of
play when the Terminals crossed
sticks with tbe All-Star aggregation
from the Bast under Art Rosa, ot the
Wanderera, the only contest the
Easterners won ln their aeries on the
Six man hockey Is productive ot a
great many Individual rushes. Tbe
greater Ice space affords such skaters
as Moose Johnson, ('oldie Prodjrerf
and Cyclone Taylor a great chance t<
show their speed, although tt handl
caps stlckhandlers like Tommy Dunderdale, Jimmy Gardner or Tobtn
who bave been accustomed to the old
style of play and are always working
In the combination stuff.
This will mean a change tn Ih'*
penalty rule and the fans will have
the pleasure of seeing twelve men on
the Ice all the time, for no sooner
does one man get sent off for a foul
than another takes his place.
Naturally it is hard on the player?
and every man upon both rosters Will
be out In uniform Saturday evening
ready'to break Into the fray when the
lime arises.
Should the venture prove successful lt ls probable that the Eastern
style wlll be used for all time to
come on the coast and moreover It
will give the team which wins the
PaterBon cup a chance to break Into
the six man game before they go east
in search of the Stanley trophy.
Ernie Johnson, although not fully
rc-overed from the smash he sustained on Friday nlgbt at the local arena
was on the Ice yesterday afternoon
for the first time.
He will take things easy for thf
rest of the week and promises to be
in shape for Saturdays game. Ran
McDonald will also be used at the out
set of the game, his cracked ribs sustained several weeks ago tn Victoria
having practically healed.
was most often whipped. He left
school to take a job as office boy
with a hardware jobbing concern, and
later worked in an automobile repair
shop. He quickly learned a lot about
motor cars, and was promoted to
demonstrator and salesman. In the
meantime he had joined an athletic
club, and took up boxing as a pastime.
Hia first public boxing bout was
with Monk Enoch, In an amateur
tournament, and young Steefen was
so stricken with stage fright that
he had to be pushed Into the ring.
Once there, he gavo a good account
of hlmeelf, and easily bested hie opponent. After a number of bouts at
Dreamland Rink he decided on a
pugilistic career and adopted the
monaker of Willie Ritchie. His first
defeat was at the hands of Matty-
He kept on, constantly improving,
until that Thanksgiving Day in 1911,
when be substituted for Ad Wolgast
on short notice, and more than held
his own against Freddie Welsh, the
British lightweight, who now denies
Willie's right to the world'i title.
Ritchie's defeat of Wolgast seems to
give him a clear title, but whether he
can defend lt against Welsh, Rivera
and the other crack lightweight* "remains to be seen."
Personally Ritchie Is a quiet, gentlemanly chap, exceptionally clean tn
morals.   He Is of German descent.
Harold Chase, wbo ts 30 years of
age today, began playing ball with
the Santa Clara College nine, and
commenced hla professional career in
the uniform of Victoria, B. C. That
was 10 years ago, and ln 1904 he
played through the season with Los
Anzeles, in the Pacific Coast League.
He joined the New York Americans in 1905, and has played first
base for that team ever since, with
the exception of the latter part of the
1908 -season, when he jumped to
Stockton, in the California outlaw
league. Hc was reinstated the following spring.

NaBhvllle, Tenn., Feb. 12.���Probably the most novel delivery of a
major league contract In the history
of the game was made when the mall
was handed around at the Davidson
County Farm and Roy Walker, now
serving a 90-day sentence ��� for . attempted voluntary manslaughter, received a document from the Cleveland American League club calling
-for his services next season.
The contract waa received Saturday at the office of Prealdent HIrsig
cf the Nashville club, with the request tbat lt be forwarded to Roy. |
It waa returned to the postman, with
Instructions to deliver it at tbe farm
where Walker ia now. a prieoner.
He haa been at the farm one month,
and hia sentence will expire about
March 10, which will give htm plenty
of time In which to report to the Naps
t - their spring training camp.
It ta well known that the former
star of the Appalachian League, who
waa bought from Nashville hy Cleveland to prevent hla being drafted, Is
regarded as a grand hurler in Nap-
land, and at the request of President
Somen, former Manager Harry Davis
made a tijlp to the Birmingham meeting of the Southern,Assoclstlon and
secured the promise of President Hlr-
sig to uae his Influence ln obtaining
Walker's release from jail. The Jury,
however, returned a verdict of guilty
and fixed tbe punishment at ten years
In the* penitentiary at Nashville.
Wben the appeal from thla decision
came up for a hearing before Criminal Judge Nsill. he reversed the sentence, claiming It waa exossslvs and
not supported by tbe svtdenes In tht
case, and he fixed the penalty at 90*
days on the County Farm.
On account Of his magnificent physique, Walker waa aaalgned to the
blacksmith shop, which, hs states,
wss the best thing that oould have
been -done for him, tor tbe bard.work
wlll put him In shape for ths Jong
[rind next season. He is apparently
little concerned over hla confinement,
and Is sure hs will occupy a regular
btrth wltb ths Naps.

Dry Farming.
Ton years ago a government lrrlga
tlon expert approached the farmora
High Veldt. Could he help
them? Oh, no, said they; we're all
all right; the land is all right; so
why dam? Besides, you can't dam
our river, and that settles It. But the
expert's faith waa not to be denied*.
Very soon he had bo many disciples
that he had more work than he could
undertake In advising farmers wheie
to put their dame and seeing that they
wero made effective. Thus bas South
Africa found salvation, in the small
scheme. Along one river, for example, are four different schemes at
work, the largest of which only irrigates, 3284 acrea.
But without Irrigation two or three
hundred acre farms have already been
proved paying propositions. Dry
farming Is the magician. What the
West of the United -States of America
has done, the desert places of the
United .states of Africa eau do. Kalahari, for instance, is one of the regions labelled desert
Yet lately Dr. Macdonald, government agricultural expert, showed to a
farming congress a series of pictures
giving glimpses of the alleged desert,
snapshots of tbe Kalahari and Gor-
donla. They amply demonstrated the
efficacy of dry farming.
And small holdings in Johannesburg; that is something in the nature
of a surprise. Is it. really to be credited that before the end of the Rand's
chequered career as. a gold mine organization measures will be taken to

matter 1b already tbe subject ot platform pledges and a Royal Commission. Whether the movement hus the
strength to survive both those ordeals

London, Feb. 12.���"In all the pages
of heroism which brighten the history of England, none Ib finer than
the tale of the death ot Lawrence Edward Oates," are worda in which one
paper refers to that gallant officer's
efforts to save his companions by not
remaining to hamper tbelr progress.
March 17, on which date Oates lay
dying In a tent while the bllftard raged outside, was his thirty-second birthday. He belonged to a Yorkshire family, which a few years ago, moved to
tiestingthorpe Hall, an historic mansion on the borders of Essex and Suffolk.
Ills father was the late N. R. Oates,
and uncle of Francis Oates, who were
both fellows of the Royal Geographical Society. They were fond of exploring and travelled Central Africa
and other parts of the world. Gest-

spirit of adventure. Joining the In-
nlsktlliiig Dragoons ln 1900, he was
sent to South Africa. He was in
charge of a patrol ln an attack on the
Doers In a river bed. His patrol mad*
a gallant fight and as each man finished his ammunition, Lieutenant Oates,
us he was then, ordered him to crawl
away until at the end of four hours'
fighting he wns left alone.
Twice during the engagement the
Boer commander sent a white flag demanding tho surrender ot the little
force, but Oates each time sent hack a
reply that he was there to fight, not
to surrender.
Eventually tho Boers retired, hut
with one of the laBt shots fired Oates
wss wounded in the thigh, the bone
being broken. His bravery caused
him to mentioned ln the despatches.
Ho wss known ln the army as "No

home but rejoined when he had recovered and served until the end of
tho war and received the Queen's
Medal with five clasps. He afterward
accompanied his regiment to Egypt
and India.

Th* Master ol Sculpture Declares That
Portraits Are the Hardest Work.
Aughste Rodin, the master <>' modern-day sculptors, the genius whose
plastic fingers appear to carry with
them the breath of life, the worker
whose every effort adds one more
page to the recorded history of man,
is not a personality that needs introduction to any part of the civilized
world. There arc some who revel in
the truth of "his work, there are others who idly mock at it, and there are
again those who admire respectfully
though occasionally incapable of completely comprehending this man who
carves music, poetry, and it would
seem life itself Irom mere stone. It
is perhaps to this latter class, though
all lovers of Rodin will want to possess the book, that sn exquisitively
illustrated volume���"Art"���just published, incorporating conversations
with Rodin collected by Paul Gsell,
will particularly appeal. The talks
are so charming and uo simple that
one feels at the end quite familiar
with the great sculptor, who, to those
loving the true in art, will always be
a friend.
He who ha3 gazed at artificial pictures, presentation portraits and
busts, wondering all the while about
artists who care to claim the creations, will be particularly interested
to hear the comments of such an
authority as Rodin. "The greatest
difficulties," he says, "Ior the artist
who models a bust or who paints a
portrait do not come from the work
which lie executes. They come from
the client for whom he works.  ���
"By a strange and fatal law," continues Rodin, "the one who orders hi*
own likeness i3 tlie one who always
desperately combats the talent of the
artist he has chosen. It is very seldom that man sees himself, as he is.
and even if he knows himself, he doe-��
not wish the artist to represent him
as he is. He asks to be represented
under the most banal and neutral aspects. He wishes to be an ofiiciat ot
worldly marionette. It' pleases him
to have the function he exercises, the
rank lie holds in society, completely
effact the man that is in him. The
magistrate wishes his robe, the general his gold-lsced tunic. They csrr
very little whether one can read their
characters. This explains the succes*-
ot so many mediocre painters and
sculptors Who sre satisfied to give the
impersonal appearance of thefi
clients; their gold lace and their oili
cial attitude. These arc the arlist-
wuo are generally highest in favor
because they lend their models r
mask of rich* and importance. Thc
more bombastic a portrait is, the mor.
it resembles a stiff, pretentious doll
the better the client Is satisfied."

stabies in the British metropolis ts
now under serious discussion. It is
desired that the bill dealing with
stricter regulations in regard to tbe
carrying of firearms (which now lies
in the pigeon holes of the home office) should be brought forward and:
The secretary of the Police and Citizen's Friendly. Association said that
already they had approached, about, at
hundred members of parliament and:
two questions were asked recently ln
tbe House, but at present there seemed to be some difficulties ln Uie way
of bringing tike bill forward*. "In the
meantime,'" said the 'secretary, "we
are pursuing investigations into the
matter, and are collecting; opinions
from the police themselves.
It was largely through, our efforts
that the half-day rest for- policemen
wan brought forward and passed, and!
we are- constantly flndSn-g that the
heads of the police come t�� us ln order-

have InteresTed themselves in the
question have asked us to let them
have any suggestions which we can

The only way Beema to be to let the
police issue the licenses for firearms."
The association has coonptled a list
of policemen who have been shot ln
the execution of their duty, and this
shows that within the last four years
there have been more victims than
during the previous twenty years immediately preceding that period. The
following are included ln the list:
1882���Police Constable George Cole,
Metropolitan, shot by burglar.
1885 ��� Police Constable Byrnea,
Cumberland, shot by robbers.
