At the meeting of the executive of the Progressive
association on Tuesday evening last a high compliment
was paid to thc manner in which the postal arrangements
of this city are being conducted at the present time. We
are not charry of giving credit where credit is due, but at
the same time we feel that it is nothing less than our duty
to point out to the Progressive association and to the citizens that all is not quite so rosy as the report of that body's
sub-committee would have us think.
Specific cases of neglect or delay are not hard to seek,
in fact we know of one of the oldest and most respected
citizens in Westminster who some time back was separated
from an important communication from the east by a matter of many days during which his letter was lying in the
Westminster post office. But coming down to the present
time we would like to cite an instance brought to our notice only yesterday.
A letter was posted by a representative business man
of Westminster to a gentleman in Vancouver on April 23
last at 5:30 p.m. He personally dropped it in a post box
near the Westminster Trust building at that hour.
As this was an important missive, enquiry as to its
whereabouts and the reason of its non-arrival was received from Vancouver by the Westminster man on the
following day. Vancouver was informed of the posting of
the letter and the Vancouver office at once put out a
tracer who failed to discover any trace of the letter.
Ultimately the missive arrived in Vancouver at 30
a.m. on April 25, bearing a New Westminster post mark
of April 24,11 a.m. Remember it was posted April 23, at
5:30 p.m.
We leave it to residents who have had similar experiences to judge whether this is a solitary case proving the
rule, or not. Certainly the above shows that there is some
mismanagement in connection with out postal service. If
it is the fault of the collection service that must be remedied speedily. If the fault lies with the post office here
then something must be done to prevent the occurrence of
these delays which, in many cases, are disastrous in ef feci
and, in all cases are of great inconvenience. The letter we
have taken as an instance should have reached Vancouver
at 10 a.m. on April 21, or 21 hours earlier than it actually
We note from a recent meeting of the Board of Trade
that there are good prospects that the New Westminster
office will ere long be raised to the first class, and we trust
that that body will continue to work unceasingly for this
desired end.
Today the congratulations of the people of the Do-j
minion of Canada to our present governor general, H.R.H.
the Duke of Connaught, will be mingled with expressions,
of sympathy and regret that his gracious wife is still under
medical treatment
The Duke is sixty-three today, and, since his return
to England from these shores, he has been very active in
directing the attention of all classes over there to the vast
potentialities that are awaiting development in Canada.
When we have such publicity men as our present governor
general and his predecessor, Earl Grey, it speaks volumes
for what we in Canada have to offer. '
Wc sincerely hope that H.R.H. the Duchess of Connaught will speedily win back to health and strength and
th it many years of usefulness and happiness may lie before the prince and princess who by their unflagging courtesy, their attention to minute details and their personal
interest in everything in Canada, have won for themselves
a place in the hearts of the people of this Dominion.

Duke of Connaught 63 Today.
Canada's governor-general, H. n. II.
Prince Arthur William Patrick Albert
Duke of Connaught, will pass hia six-
ty-ihird milestone today. The Duke,
who la soon to relinquish the viceregal office at Ottawa, haa since early
manhood has been an enthusiastic
admirer of the land of the maple leaf,
and of ita people, and thia feeling, together with hia personal churin of
manner, tact, honesty and sound
judgment, have made him one of the
moat popular executives in the history of the Dominion.
In hla connection with Canadian
affairs the duke has been aa diplomatic aa his brother, the late king Kdward, and, |n the midst of political
spheavals, has kept the friendship of
Ihe leadera and the rank and file of
both parties.
Thousands of the future citizens of
the Dominion will have treasured reminders of the duke's administration
n tlieir commissions as Boy Scouts,
every one cf which has becn personally signed by the uncle of King
George. This has entailed a tremendous amount of labor, but the, duke
ls no stranger to Industry, and en-
'���: retains great admiration for the
Scouts   movement.
The fact that the duke attached his
signature to Canadian commissions
with his own hand, while General Baden-Powell uses a rubber stamp on
the papers of English Scouta, has
aroused a spirit of envy among the
Kngiish lads, who have petitioned
that the duke be made their chief.
Harry l.eon Wilson, author of "The
Spenders," "The Seeker," and other
popular novels, was born at. Oregon,

have been three Mrs, Wilsons. The
first was a writer of short stories,
and procured a divorce on thc ground
cf incompatibility.
Tho second Mrs. Wilson was Rose

she became the bride of the author.

came a public figure by predicting

created on the "metes and hounds"
system, or in olher words where land
Is subdivided and the plans of thu
subdivision are not presented to the
municipal engineer for approval and
where the streets thronfth the subdivided portion do not conform with
the ones already existing in the
municipality.    The stand is this: The

there had been no evidence to show
that Hoyce knew the contents or the

Steamer Awarded $47,500 for Salving
Snowden   Range.
London.   April   30. -The   admiralty
haB nwarded the owners of the steam
ship Welshman $47,500 for Biilving the
steamer Snowden Range, from phlla-
lelphin Nov. 22. which had such 11
series of remarkable adventures.
The troubles of the Snowden Range
began on Ilec. 5. when she lost her
rudder In a heavy gale. She wallowed
about In t heavy sea for several days,
with the crew working hard, but vain-
v, to rig up a jury rudder. They rigged up seven of these, one after another, but all tailed to bold.
The Captain Of the Snowden Range,
when he sighted the Swedish steamer
Vesterland on Pec. 19, asked her for a
tow.   The captain of the Vesterland
ilei'lini'd to tow the Snowdi'ii Range,
but ottered to take the captain and
crew off the boat.

agree to. He would have nothing to
do with the sale of Indian lands to the
white man. He Insisted that the
treaty gave the land to the Indians aa
long as water ran and grass grew,
ami from thiB position he could not be
i moiled.
It is said that one of the last thing3
I Crop Eared Wolf did before hia death
j was to cal Ibis minor chiefs and people
together and make them promise that
| they would never Bell their land to the
1 white man. Their tract ls one of the
���most fertile in the whole province of
I Alberta and would be valuable as a
tract for colonization purposes.
Crop Eared Wolf was the proud possessor of one of the medals given to
the chiefs at the time of the visit of
the governor-general of Canada, some
few years ago. He always wore the
uniform of a chief which ill modern
times Is blue serge with brans buttons,
and is supplied by the Indian department.
He was an ardent advocate of peace.
Many a tempestuous time on the reserve was brough to a happy issue by
his intervention. At the time Charcoal
was at large. Crop Eared Wolf was
one of the party constantly on the
watch for his capture. It was through
his help that .lames Wilson, now registrar of brands at Medicine Hat,
then Indian agent at Macleod, was
able to finally mako the capture that
brought the murderer to the gallows.
Was a Brave Indian.
The old chief was, of course, a brave
num. On more than one occasion he
haB shown the writers the scarB of
I many a severe teat. Ilia breast ia
I covered from the armpits to hia very
(throat with thong mark but never In
I one of these ordeals did he flinch or
show anything but the bravery that
would one day elect him chief of his
Indian  bund.
Crop  Eared   Chief  had     rather    a
greater sensce of the fitness of things
; than is usually found In an Indian. It
is  said  that  on  one  occasion  a  mia-
; slonary from one of the stations near
the reserve took an  interpreter with
I him and called on the old chief for the
purpose of  taking his  picture.     Wolf
was  very Indignant.
ll" explained through the Interpreter that it would have heen all right
I if he hud asked the camera man to
j visit him for the purpose aet forth,
but lt was a violation of good taste fur
him to come unsolicited, Crop had
an aversion to having his face snapped and the photographer had t.i go
home without gaining the end be
came for.
Had Modern House.
It   might   surprise   most   people   io
[know  that Crop  Eared   Wolf had    a
'house as well furnished as the average home tn most towna or citlea. Car-
I pets covered the floors.    The wigwam
j with Its open fire waB replaced with
the   kitchen   with   its   modern   range.
I Instead  of  sleeping  on  a  blanket on
Ithe ground, thla Indian and his squaw
I had   their  comfortable   mattress  and
i Iron bedstead.
Lamps lit the house, blinds covered
the windows, paint kept the exterior
from becoming weather-beaten, cooking utensils hung in their proper
places and a table waa ai-t to which
the Indian agent, farm Instructor or
(any one else might ail up.

London, April 30. Pining out in the
West Knd has become something of
an adventure. The series of weekend strikes lasting from ten minutes
to an hour at several WeBt End hotels and re8taurant8 caused grave anxiety and morbid anticipation to hosts
who had arranged dinner or luncheon
Much depended in these lightning
strikes on conclaves between the hotel
management and representatives of
the Amalgamated Union of Hotel
Workers and the London Cooks'a un
ion, who were hurried to the spot to
enter Into Immediate negotiations.
Gin sis ul the Savoy Hotel on n re
'cent Saturday evening had an anxious
; moment,    Tables   ware  all   laid   and
, hosts  were slinking  hands and   chatting with guests Epicures were studying the menu.   Then camo the ultima
turn: "There will bo nn dinner tonlglll
unless the demands of tho stuff ore
j ooncedt d."
The manager acted quickly, a
hapty meeting waa arranged, and for
twenty minutes the fate of tbe expect
,nnt diners hung in the balance. Tlnn
the army of waiters advanced quickly
to the dining halt.
Dinner nlso trembled in the balance
fur ten minutes at a restaurant in st,
-JameB1 street where also an eleventh-
hour strike was declared,   Here again
'quick action on the part of the
management saved the Bituation, A
"down  dishes"  ultimatum  at   Bailey's

'not rehiilt so amicably, and luncheon

and what Ihey thought their lust hope
inarch off lu a body, Hut a hurried
mobilisation Of the female Btaff, In
eluding the chambermaids, permitted
the   serving  of   the   mettl,   which   wns
in readiness,
At the .South Kensington Hotel,
Queen's Gate-terr.'ice, S.W., repre
sent&tlves of the two trade unions
were unabel to enter the hotel to cn)l
a strike, Finally they oBtabliBhed
communication   through a  man  who
entered on another errand. They were
then admitted to the kitchen, where
the siniT, acting on their Instructions,
stopped  work.    The trouble here and
at Bailey's hotel was settled al night,
and pence was also declared at the
Criterion restaurant
Dining out, however, is likely to he
a still greater adventure during the
nexl few weeks. An official of the
men's union stated thnt strikes are
likely to be declared at three Umdon
hotels unless the men's demands are
granted.     These   are   that   the   shopa

Family of Soldiers.
"My   father  was   a   stonemason   at 1
Warwick.." he said to a Lloyd's repre- ;
sentatlve who called upon him at his i
bome in Providence street, South Ash- ;
ford, "and I was one of three brothers
wh-y all   served   in   the   Crimea.   My
brother  Joseph  was  with  the  Second
Rifle  brigade, and  went  through  the
battle of Alma and Inker-man, only to
h* i -hot dead at Sehastopol.    My other
brother,   Robert,   was   in   the   Miners
with me and died In Warwick   eight
years ago."
Several of Mr. Heritage's relatives
fought in the Crimea, and three of
his sons have been soldiers, while the
fourth  was a territorial.
"1 was eighteen years of age," said
Mr. Heritage, "when in the beginning
of Tiii I enlisted in the MinerB at. Warwick. 1 had had ten months' training
and then our company was ordered to
the war. which was in full swing, and
we i mbarked on the troopship Indiana
at I'ortsmouth. Our commanding of-
lici r was Colonel Lloyd, but the offl-
Ci r i recollect best was Lieutenant
Edwardes General Sir Hexan Ed-
wardes as he now* is - who was mem-
bi I- of parliament for the Folkestone
and  Hythe constituency.
No Lyddite in '55.
"We landed at Balaclava and Immediately proceeded to the front at Se-
bastopol, where our duty was to drive
mines and demolish the fortifications
of the enemy. The work was laborious and very dangerous. We had no
such things as lyddite, cordite or the
'ther powerful explosives of today.
We had to be content with blasting
i powder nnd big flint fuses.
It was not always possible to depend
i upon the explosion occurring punctually, and as a consequence there was
considerable loss of life. I particular-
' Iv remember the death of Major ltan-
kin, which happened through this
cause. A fuse had heen Bet In a build-
ine deserted hy the Hussians and it
did not explode at the moment we calculated.
The major waited some minutes and
then disappeared into the building to
investigate the reason for the delay,
and almost at once there was a terrible explosion, In which he met an
awful hut mercifully quick end.
"Ot course, ln our attacks upon the
'ortlflcaUcna'there were numerous ex-
-���Itinn skirmishes with the Russians
from which 1 emerged unscathed. No
fighting was more fierce and desperate, though, than that which accompanied the stormlnlg of the famous Fort
Meant to Get It.
As can be Imagined, the fort was
exceedingly important to the defense
if Sehastopol. We were bent on capturing it, and the Russians were
qually determined to keep us out: so
that   the  lighting  which  took  placeat
the dual and successful onslaught was
of a description not to he forgotten
easily. Inch by Inch the ground was
contested right under the shadow of
the ltedan, and then the Miners were
Instructed to scale the walls, which
towered above them, and lay the mines
of blasting powder.
"Telescopic ladders were speedily
placed In poBltlon��� Bome of them
stretching for thirty feet���and up
these the Miners swarmed. Their
situation was by no means enviable
for the enemy, concealed In the parapets of the fort, fired upon them from
above and it was a sickening spectacle to Bee our fellowB dropping from
the ladderB to the ground, wounded
or dead.
To a certain extent the Miners were
protected by the Infantry behind them
who directed a constant fire at the
Hussians on the parapets, and at last,
after heroic endeavors, the storming
party reached the top walls and the
Miners placed their explosives In po
sltion. It waB not long before the
fort, was blown up. and we stood at a
safe distance wildly cheering.
After the War Was Over.
"Soon afterwards the war ceased,
and I went with my company to Clb-
ralt.i:. where Robert and I received
the Crimean and Turkish medals. Wt

New Trains of Thought.
"My object has been," Bhe sayB, "to
suggest new trains of thought and to
put a new point of view to those who,
"liber from want of due considera-
lion or from the habit of reading in
the preSB and elsewhere alarmist reports of Herman hostility, have come
'o thc regrettable conclusion that war
between Oreat Britain and Germany
s Inevitable and  impending.
"I have tried to show not only that
there is no foundation for such a
view, but that for the sake of western
civilization, In particular, and the
world in general, It is desirable that
two countries be united in a close

liond of friendship, and that it is es
sential that they should not be parted
by artificial agitation."
How a woman came to take up such
a   subject   was   explained   by   W.   L.
Oeorge, a nephew of Lady    Phillips,
who said:
HaB Studied Problem.
"Lady   Phillips,  from  the  time her
husband, Sir Lionel, figured    in    the
Jameson raid, has been vitally Interested In all the political problems of
South Africa and has been in a position to meet here   and there   all the
leading diplomats and politicians. For
several  years  she has heen  studying
why   the  two  great  western   powers.
Great  Britain  and  Germany,  are    so
busy watching each.other, both forgetting  that  far  more serious  problems
may crop up at any time���namely, social  reforms  and  the  black  and  yellow perils.
"In the last chapter she outlines a
solution which, briefly, is: Give Germany sufficient to do abroad and she
will then quit being a nuisance at
home. It seems quite natural that
Kngland, being the greatest colonizing
nation, should have a woman, who has
lived chiefly in the colonies, whose
husband's Interests are colonial, and
who. therefore, understands colonial
problems sufficiently to recommend

' I took part in the operations at
Sehastopol for six menths; our camp
was behind the trenches, and tlie custom was for a draft to he in the
trenches for twenty-four hours on end
and then retire to camp tor a long
rest. The changing was effected at
night so that we might not offer a
mark to the enemy.
"The trench which I served in was
about a mile from the Sehastopol forts
ind we could see the Russians plainly. They made a number of sorties,
'nd the closest I got to a Russian was
one night when cur outposts fell hack
I *:th '.he pews that they were charging
the tr nches.
"They came upon us In a dark mass
and we fired a volley Into them. They
replied, and following that we had lu
Btructions to go for 'em. Out of the
trenches we clambered. But they did
not wait: they ran away as hard a;
they could, and in the d-irknes w<
heard a lot of them howling like a
lot of boys. It was fine to have r
chance of meeting them hand to hand
and we were all sorry they didn't stop
for a tussle.
Not All Honey.
"Life In the trenches was not all
hay and sunshine, and an incident
such an 1 have described made an
agreeable variation, When il rained

md 1 have seen a bayonet put to some

enemy's bullets would be whistling

"1 was wounded on the very day-

From English Viewpoint
"She writes from an admittedly
Kngiish standpoint, feeling that, with
Germany really friendly, we can
solve the problem of poverty by-
adopting better colonizing methods,
obtain greater unity of empire and
administer more wisely Egypt aud in-
then be satisfied with British rule."
Lady Phillips is now in South
Africa and does not intend to return
to Kngland for a year.
There is one point in which Lady
Phillips dismisses a vast question
with feminine lightness of touch.
Oermany, she EiiggeBts, can find "a
place In the Bun" in South America.
England need not trouble about the
l'nited Slates' objection to this.
"It is the l'nited States, not England, which erected the Monroe doctrine," she writes. "We are not
pledged to it. We do not respect It.
We have no reason to support it.
-specially since the l'nited States has I
openly shown bad faith and enmity
toward ns In thc matter ofthe Panama canal.
"Now Germany is credited, on
flimsy grounds, so far, with ambitions
In Venezuela and Brazil. Let us
make it clear that we are disinterested in the matter, that if Oermany
wishes to extend her sway to South
America it is Germany's business, not
Neutral Opinion.
"Let lt be understood that we do
not accept the fiction that the Americans are necessarily our friends and
the Germans necessarily our enemies.
If Germany wishes, then, to buy land
or acquire It by force- ir even Bhe
chooses to risk a war with the United
States she may do so without lhe
tear of n hostile Great Uritaln in her,
rear. Why should we support the
Monroe doctrine?"
Apart from this the book gives little opportunity for current gibes
about women who dabble In politics.
