TUESDAY MORNING,  MAY  27,   1913.
It was a happy coincidence that tidings of the important position that this section of the mainland held in the
eyes of the British admiralty strategists should have arrived just when the air was full of the celebration of Empire Day and Victoria Day.
Now that these festivities have passed, it is of interest to recall a not far distant speech of the premier of
"British Columbia in which he laid special emphasis upon
lhe fact that the western terminals of the great Canadian
transcontinental lines were to date totally unprovided for
in the way of fortifications.
A great amount of work is at present being done in
connection with the improvement of Esquimalt harbor,
but whether that is to be the future naval base of the
North Pacific as it has been in the past, does not yet appear.
Reports from England point to the development of
harbors on the mainland but, whether Burrard Inlet
' be utilized for this purpose or not, it is essential that adequate land defences be provided to guard the railway terminals. Herein New Westminster may be particularly
concerned for it is here the communication with two greal
lines and with four in the near future could be cut.
It may be relied upon that any defences upon land
or sea which are contemplated for thc western end of the
inter-imperial lines of communicatiofi which stretch across
Canada will mean considerable development in this vicinity. That again will mean money being spent and work
being provided in our neighborhood.

Luring the one month's Itinerary
'that has just been completed, the
commission sat for the hearing of
evidence and (.pinion on labor topics
at no fi wer than Hftei n p ipulation
centres, the Btibjects chiefly Investl
gated being Incidental to conditions
obtaining among the men engaged in
railway construction with (imps al
Lytton and Penticton Cat which latter point the ehort-llved I. W. W
strike had Ils inception I, while all
through the Okanagan valley iiie issue virtually monopolizing attention
was with respeei to the alb gi d Bear
City of agricultural  labor.
In the Boundary district all evidence
taken centred largely upon conditions
disclosed in the metalliferous mining
Industry, so that considerable variety-
was given to tbt general scope of enquiry.
Favor Shorter Day.
The question of the eight-hour day
proved one in which very live and
general interest is evinced, all g'n-
eral trades apparently being agreed as
to its desirability, while on the other
hand the suggestion of an eight-hour
day for farmers was scouted by tbe
representatives of agricultural industry.
There was evidenced In the industrial sciions of the interior, as in
the coast cities, emphatic approval by
organized labor of a general eight
hi ur day for all labor and of the gnv-
ernment taking ovi r the entire matter
of workmen's compensation 'from a
fund to be levied by percentage reductions from payrolls, according to
the occupation hazard, etc., to which
proposition no active opopsition Iris
dp yel developed during the commls-1
Sinn's touring.
The r-urth section itinerary for this I
commission  has  already  been    completed, and  Is   as    follows:    Golden,
Friday. June 0;   Aililarnier.     Mon.lav.

interest at the rate of tlve per cent.
and ' n that basis lhe sale was practically no more favorable t-i Edmonton than is the one jus! completed
to   Victoria.
Seme idea cf the diff culty of die-
pi sing of bonds al the preseyt Ime,
Mr, Itaymur pointed out, mav le* had

waterworks loan issue of Stre'.""" and
the 1913 Bewers loan issue of $700,000
Of these four issues, only the last,
when passed by the ratepavers, bore
Interest at 4'* per cent., the others
being feur per cent, issues, but tie-
legislature at the last session authorized the increase In Ihe interest rate
on city debentures to 4!^ per cent,
in view of the increased rale charged   for   money'.
The debentures thus disposed of
amount to about one half of the total amount of bonds being offered
by the city on the London market,
the balance being chiefly local improvement Ponds, aggregating In
amount about $2,000,000, It is believed that these latter will soon also be disposed of.

' H E R E are men who do not believe in advertising���good
men and wise, but that signifies naught   It is but ��
brief while since many men believed that the earth was
flat, but it wras round all the time.   The earth did not change its
shape; men merely altered their views.  The point of it all is that
there are established facts in business just as there are established
facts in nature and belief or disbelief does not change the facts-
Suppose, for instance, you were to say "I do not believe in
darkness; I do not want darkness."   Will it not grow dark tonight just the same as though yout were heartily in favor of it?
You may not like the telephone or typewriter or addincr
machine���thousands of persons do not���but these are established
instruments in today's activities and your feolimrs will not alter
the facts. To refuse to use them stamps vou as he'-xr behind the
times, and competition with the man or businc ������ which does use
them is no longer possible for the man or business which does,
not use them.
The time has passed for giving serious attention to the man
who does not believe in advertising. Advertising is as much a
part of today's life as electricity, antiseptic surgery or trolley
The system under which he who has something to sell tells-
about it to those who do or should use it, is a proven, established,

far you get with your opposition.
The Law of Demand is just as sane, just as certain and just
as natural as the Law of Gravity. Both work day and night,
week days, holidays and Sunday, and they always pull downward.
Down at the bottom of all commercial success there is Demand insistently tugging away. If Demand can be circumscribed
and focused and tied to your product, you have done a big thing
and middlemen by the score can no more stand against it than
can a few layers of fleecy cloud keep Gravity from accomplishing its effective work.
This is no preachment against the powerful importance of
the wholesale or retail merchant. The manufacturer who neglects
the dealer in any advertising campaign he may inaugurate is.
indeed lacking in foresight.
"Forcing the trade" to carry a line has long since given way
to better methods. Co-operation is betted than coercion. But as
a foundation for success nothing can take the place of a powerful
customers' demand.
No one can want anything until hc knows of its existence
and its fitness for filling his requirements. Advertising is a way
by which people are told why they should have your goods and,
at the same time, taught how they may identify them.
The method is backed by good logic and good sense���just the
same sort of a plain, prosaic business reasoning which is required
in any other line of work.
There is nothing magical or mysterious about it and the
greatest advertising successes have been singularly free from
the frills and furbelows with which some advertising men seek
to invest this plainest and simplest aid to present day merchandise

Almost Surgical Skill Used on the Ice
to Make It Perfect.
Scotch players regard ibe conditions
of Alpine curling as somewhat too I in- 1
urioiis. Tbe lee Is nlmost too perfect,
and the tactics that proved successful
011 the rough Ice of a Scott ish pond
have to lie abandoned iu fuvor of more
subtle methods.
The ordinary visitor to the Alps has
very little Idea of the science and work
which are necessary to Insure a good ,
rink,  and  the Scotch curler wbo lias
been accustomed Ui tlie rough lee form- 1
ed by a few nights' frost Is somewhat
startled when he sees an army of Ice-
men   working   through   the  night.    A
rink In  tbe Alps is 11 cosily  business
Tbe ground is carefully leveled iu the '���
spring, and after the flrst fall of snow j
a   squad   of  Icemen   tramp  the  snow I
down us evenly as iwssilile.   The flood-
ing   Is  done  In   n   series  of   elaborate
stages, which enn be corrled out only
when the sun Is shining.
The secret of good Ice ls to go slowly
This was proved by 11 clever experi
ment. The discovery of this was due
to Rudolph Bautnan, perhaps the best
ii-emiin In the Alps. He tilled two
wooden nibs .with water, und Hie first
frose hard In 11 nlgbt Tbe second was
allowed to HH gradually, drop hy drop.
throughout a fortnight The two blocks
of lee were then put in tlie sunshine,
and. whereas the ice that hnd been
formed In a single night disappeared
within a week, the other block sur
lived for three weeks
The Ice Is carefully doctored every
ulghi with the skill of a first class sur
geon Small holes are trimmed nnd
scooped out with a knife 'Ibey are
then tilled with finely powdered ice
and sprinkled with boiling water The
result Is un absolutely even surfuce of
good Ice.-Loudon Times.
Solidified   Petroleum.
Oeoan   liners   may   soon   use   solid
petroleum   as   fuel.     Not  so   long  ago
ship owners met in London and decid-l
ed to go into the production of solid!-1
lied   petroleum    brlckets    6n   a   large'
scale.    The crude oil is boiled and to]
,it is Bildcl a certain amount ol stearic

caustic soda.    I'pon cooling,  there
obtained  a  transparent    mass    Bome
what resembling glycerine soap, and it
has sufficient cohesion to allow of
making it Into square-shaped brickets
These are easy to handle, as tliey are
not brittle nor do they cause dust.
Such blocks have a slow and very
regular combustion owing to their
'uniformity of structure. The weather
does not seen to affect thein, and
they always remain clear.
The heat production from them is
such that a ton ol solidified petroleum
serves instead ol two a_id one-ball
tons ol coal. The great saving of
space on shipboard is evident, and

Athabasca. May 26.���Another greal
ur.ke Of natural gas occurred in well
No. 4 on the east side. At the roughest computation there is a pressure
of 800 pounds to the square inch,
which means approximately a flow
of between two and three million fee:
of  gas  a  day.
Gas was si ruck some time ago In
this well, but it was only a pocket
and It was decided to continue the
boring In the hope of striking the
main strata. The result bas exceed
ed all expectations.
Only one other well in Athabasca
so far has given such a yield and thai
one is well No. 8, situated In the centre of the town at Coles streel, which
was struck on the 17th of March last.
Tia well Is still yielding as well
now as on the day It was struck, aud
there Ib every' reason to suppose that
No. 4 will do likewise. These two
wells are about a mile apart, and are
abundant proof that this whole re-
glo'n Ib underlined with gas.

London, May 26. The Times gives
prominence to a long article by Sir
Valentine Chlrol, treating the Japanese dispute wiiii  ths  United  States
as  a  grave   International   Issue.     Tie*
Tillies editorially takes the same view'
The article  says:
"Tlie ultimate point  Of  the  dispute
does  not   affeel   the   Uinlbed   states
alone, still less California, ll Is a '
world question essentially. The rears
of  the  Inhabitants ot    the    Pacific
slope lire exaggerated and premature. :
bill  they are nut entirely groundless,
No   useful   purpose   can   be   served \
by blind condemnation of the tendencies or public opinion In the western
states. They do not spring so much
from race hatred as from the liiBtlnct'
et seir preservation. The time has
come when Japan is disposed to Challenge the very esence of the attitude j
or western nations toward Asiatics,
she asks admission to the comity of
nations on equal terms."
Excitable  Democracy
Emphasizing one of the points made
by Sir Valentine Chlrol, the Times
"Japan's challenge conns HI a moment   that   is   fraught    with   peculiar
danger. Japan is entering upon a
new era. Her eider statesmen have
person nearly all passed away and few are
left to check the impulses of popular
passion. The senil-dlvine attributes
of the ruler no longer serve to sway
or sooth the nation In moments of
Japanese democracy is knocking at
the doors of the council chambors,
and we fear it Is a democracy which
is headstrong, excitable and Inexperienced, qualities which are shared in
a greater or less degree by all democracies. We are thus on both sides
confronted by a situation of very
1 special difficulty."
i   Dealing specifically with the Callfornlan issue, the editorial says:
