whin Villa hurls his force against

Proposed Bargain.
One   significant   factor   stands  out
clearly as the result of debate in the
commons.    The temper of the radical
members has risen and any further
concession by the governmenl to the
Llsterites or the Unionists, or both or
either, will lead the vast majority of
the Liberal party to rebel.   They will
not see the parliament act Btultifled.
They insist that the government's program   must  go through    no    matter
what the consequences. And they have
so intimated  to the  premier and his
colleagues.    They  are  willing to accept the  proposed bargain by  which

decline to consider It.
Majority Rules.
It is in vain that they are told that
six months must elapse between the
passage of the Irish government bill
and the assembling of the Irish parliament at Dublin. The radical position
is that they have made a very fair
offer; that it is an offer which must
stand, and that it must be made clear
that under the British system of government t'ne majority in parliament
must rule.

Government Grants Addition  to  Previous  Offer of  ny.   Acres  on
Eighth  Street.
That the government wag willing
to consider a proposition to grant
the city a strip of 40 feet \_ width
of the old cemetery on Eighth street
in addition to tbe allowance of 131^
acres already offered. waB the statement made by Mayor Gray in council
last night while reporting on a trip
to Victoria last week. The mayor
stated that he had expressed the
city's dissatiBfactlon at the grant of
18% acres to the deputy minister of
lands, who had suggeBted that, it
might be possible to allow the city
an extra strip of 40 by reducing the
size of the lots in the government's
portion, providing the city made application. The mayor considered that
40 feet would make the property
available sufficient for the city's
needs and on return had made written application for the grant and a
reply was expected in the course of
the  next few days.
Sapperton  Sewer  Scheme.
While   in   Victoria  the,   mayor    investigated the standing of the city in
respect    to    the    Sapperton-Burnaby
sewer bonds and discovered that under existing legislation the bonds for
tiie work could not be sold until the
work was completed.   As it is essential  that the project be financed as
early   as   possible   the   mayor   stated
that  the city solicitor had wired the
solicitors  of the  firm  which  offered
to purchase the bonds, suggesting a
contract  agreeing to purchase  when
the  work  was completed  be  entered
into, thus enabling the city to realize
the   necessary   finances   through   the
city's bankers.    A reply to this wire
is   expected   before  the   end  of  the
week and at a special meeting of the
council to be held on Priday the matter will again come up for consideration.
Protest Account.
Another matter taken up by Mayor
Gray at Victoria was the question
of the city's responsibility for the
cost of renewing the Coquitlam pipe
at the point where it crosses the
asylum property at Essondale. The
city maintains that it is not liable
for the expense of this work, but
the government, accordiu? to a previous communication, held differently.
The attorney general informed the
mayor that he would advise the council this week in respect to the government's attitude toward the protest of tbe account.
The mayor's report was the prin
cipal item on the agenda and it was
adopted  unanimously.
Railway Crossing.
In  response    to   a    communication
from    the   Burnaby    council    asking
Westminster to co-operate with  Bur
naby and Coquitlam in respect to an
application   to   the  board   of  railway
commissioners for an    order    for    a
level   crossing   for   street   cars   over
the G. N. R. tracks at the North road,
Mayor Gray and Aldermen Dodd, Jar
dine and   Annandale  were appointed
a special committee to take the matter   up   with   the   ottu^r   two   mnnici
paliiits.    Tbe crossing  is  desired to
permit  the  extension  of the  Sapperton car line along the North road.
In reply to a communication suggesting the employment of Burnaby
residents on the Sapperton-Burnaby
sewer scheme the clerk was instructed to write the Burnaby council stating that the laterals were now being
laid through the penitentiary grounds
by convict labor, but as soon as the
trenches were advanced beyond the
prison precincts the suggestion would
be taken into consideration.
Clean-up Day.
A suggestion from the Progressive
association that the city establish a
clean-up day similar to those adopted
in other cities was referred to the
health committee for report. The
council gave its unanimous approval
io the idea. The aim of the cleanup day is to encourage residents to
get rid of their winter accumulation
cf refuse.

At the special meeting to be held

This is the time of year a little foresight will go a long
way toward helping the city's general appearance a few
months hence. A few cents spent in seeds, a few spare
hours each week and in the summer months to come the

which will be a credit to his neighborhood and to the whole
Ever since it took the form of a settlement New Westminster has borne the reputation of being a place of beautiful homes. Nature sent it off to a good start and its
people have done a lot to enhance that reputation, but
there is still room for improvement and this is the season
to get in the telling strokes.
A man does not have to he wealthy to have an attractive home garden. All he needs is about one dollar
to buy seeds and a little pride and energy to put behind
the shovel and rake handle, not forgetting the lawn mower. If every householder would start with this stock in
trade and keep up the gait during the summer this city
would be an exhibit worth coming miles to see.
Also, if you have some houses for sale, it's a mighty
good investment. It is simply wonderful what a difference a well kept lawn and a few flower beds make in the
appearance of a property. That's the commonplace side
of the case, but home-beautifying should be a matter of
pride with very man who is lucky enough to own or rent
his place of abode.

It's Palmy Days Date Dark to the
Time When Father Duncan Led
the Indians From Savagery Into
the Way* of Peace and Built
Them a Church���Then Dimension
Hill cml In and They I .eft.
Less than a hundred years ago the
Indians up around the Arctic Circle
were killing eaeh other for food. We
have occasional glimpses of this ceremony to-day on the films of tbe moving picture machines. The weird, ungainly dances, the more weird noises,
the war whoops and gaudy ornaments. Tben the sombre feasts
around a great crackling lire, says
Margaret Bell In Toronto Globe.
Into this scene of barbarism came
a young man of simple habits and
kindly disposition. Father Duncan
they learned to call him. Father Duncan bad great faith In an all-pervading Omnipotence, and went about
showing that faith. He learned to
speak their tongue, he watched them
at their bow and arrow practice. And
soon they ceased to kill their fellows
and roast them over the camp fires.
Father Duncan was becoming established. He lived in a small log
but, and tilled a bit of land at the
back of it. And the great, hulking
fellows would come silently along,
and watch the white-faced man
working under the Arctic skies.
Small wonder that tbey learned to
look upon him as a sort of god. His
principles were not warlike, he was
just in all his dealings, as the great
god of all the Indians was supposed
to be.
And soon they b*gun to forget any
god but the one be represented. And.
they thrived, under the new dispensation, their squaws gave ihem new Indians, and their workings in leather
found a market In the country lo ihe*
soutii of them.
They even worshipped in the hut
of Father Duncan, wbo ban no creed
but the creed of honesty and conscientious work.
Rut he was not popular with the
authorities of the orthodox Church.
They did not agree with his practical
views on religion. Their religion had
a creed, a theory, which placed their
Deity on high and regarded Him
from afar.
And so they banded together and
decided that Father Duncan must
leave. He was not of their faith,
and he was Influencing the Indians
to believe In his faith. True, they
had never succeeded In changing the
faith of the Indians, but they were
determined  that no one else should.
The good Father beard of the bickerings and felt the spirit of unreal
which swept over the people. So he
moved away from his Utile hut aud
bit of land, away across tii*- boundary
into  llritlsh  Columbia.
At Mi'tlaeatla he established what
Is known to-day as The Holy City.
It stands on the seashore, just across
from Prince' Rupee , tbe western terminus of the Grand Trunk  Pacific.
His followers went with him to the
new country and prepared to establish for themselves a new home more
comfortable than they had ever
They built a pretty little church,
built it with their own hard, browu
bands. They cut down tin* fragrant
Cv.-dar trees, trimmed them, and built
their church from the native* wood,
Tbi'.e was a great celebration when
it was finished, and never was white
man prouder of any achievement than
these uncouth red men of their lusi
The Metlacatla Indians became

painstaking earnestness in furthering
their Industries. And more: the tribes
who used to live on each other became the least warlike.
But ill-luck seemed to shadow Unkind Father, The beautiful church,
of which be was so proud, was burned
to the cround through jealousy.
For there wen* constant bickerings
amongst the white-faced people,
Bickerings as to the religion established by this stranger; bickerings
about the Industry he had established among the Indians,
The* good Father was blind and
deaf to the bill* lings for awhile*.
lie rebuilt his church and went quietly about his work. At last, however,
be became tired of the controversies
of opinion. He longe*; for a i|ule*t spot
where, he could live as be wished,  So
be decided to leave Ihe Holy Cily he
bad established. He went back to
establish his religion and home In
the Alaska which had driven him out
before. Of tbe twelve hundred followers he had in Metlacatla, over
eight   hundred   went  with   him.
Hut tbey left many reminders.
Wonderful carvings cut in great cedar trees. These are the family totems. They took large trees, anywhere from ten to lifty feet high, and
carved upon them grotesque birds,
bears, fishes, and animals of ail sorts.
Each carved figure represented some
thing���part of their faith in nature.
or a tribute to their deity. The white
man cannot appreciate tbe totems of
the Indians.
Tbe most remarkable one Blands
on the seashore, where a neglected
road now leads up from the landing
to tbe village of Metlacatla. This is

who dwelt amongst them, and died
in their midst.

Henry K. Wickstced, Bachelor of
Arts and Silence, civil engineer,
sailor, woodsman, and so forth, is
known to lhe mobile fraternity of
railway builders as the I'athtlnder of
the Canadian Northern Hallway.
There's another distlnctio that
takes on fresh interest from recent
events in Montreal���Wlcksteed is the
father-and-mother or the Mount
Koyal tunnel. To attribute this
monopolistic gender to the chief en- '
glneer of surveys for Mackenzie.
Mann and Co. means to lop off a few j
sprigs of credit that false stories !
have woven Into laurel wreaths for
Others, says Itobson Black In Toronto Star Weekly. Some recognized
tbe tunnel Idea as one of Sir Donald
Mann's Olympian prophesies; others
told how Col, Davidson, (lie rajah of
really, had comprehended the whole
business ut one swing of bis walking
stick. And then Sir William Mackenzie was supposed to have "seized" Ihe scheme at one master flash
of Intuition. Now, the tame fact Is
that the Mount Koyal tunnel is due
to a calm, profession-.;! hazard of
Henry K. Wickgteed, who wasn't
sent by anybody to do anything ���
but did il. lie came home to Toronto and mentioned big plan to the
two great chiefs of the C.N,R. it was
then ihat Col. Davidson, head of
the land department, took a band
car for the metropolis and commenced to measure roods and perches for
"Model City."
A  conversation  with  H.  K. Wick-
Beeed  is certain to impress one tbat
railroad   building  is  really  no  more
troublesome than soldering a teapot.
Probably he tines not intend to convey that Impression, but of all men
In*   is  the   last  to  base   his  personal
record on extraordinary  talents.   So
his tongue slips by the coupling pins
of   Wicksteed-plus   and   settles  more
comfortably on the  impersonal   concerns of the   railway   that   employs
him.     Kor    instance,    1    questioned
bim  as  to some  of  the  problems of
the survey chief.    "Yew; there were
a few difficulties, but he was blessed
with some remarkably-competent dl-,
vision engineers."     Wag not railway
building in the mountains a perplexing task?   O, not so very!   Tbe main
thing  was   "to  follow    the   rivers."
And     carrying     a     transcontinental
across    the    prairies?     Well ��� Mr.
Wlcksteed,   afraid   of   enlarging   the
character of tbe job which he   bad
conquered so often, tapered it down
until one had the   Impression   that
railway   building   between   Winnipeg
and  the  foothlllB   was   not   half   so
hard   as  clipping  yard  lengths  at  a
ribbon   counter.     Such   personal   un-
obtrusiveness    is    a    widely-shared
virtue   of   the   "out-of-doors"   man,
and   seems    a   natural    distillant    of
camp  lires and   the common   seiueo-
H. K. Wlcksteed is therefore the

Information of H.K.W. In lhe Cana-
elian Northern offices, it is well-
known that Mackenzie ami Mann
plan- the highest value on a Wlek-
! steed opinion. He combines thor-
i ougli scientific equipment with mel-
j low eel Judgment, a "head" lor
weighing his engineering predilections on the same scale as "fixed
' charges," thus rendering him a survey financier as well as a skilled professional. That be bss Ingenuity and
imagination, two of the plastic qualities in a man that lift him out of
the routine regiment, Is shown by
Innumerable innovations in liis sur-
\ey marches, which previous engineering practice lias not discovered.
Thus on the Sudbiiry-Port Arthur
surveys whicli covered over four
years, instead of toting in tbe winter supplies for the survey parties
and placing them in caches at the
rear of the advancing parties, he
changed the custom and had them
placed in front, so that everv day's
march through Ihe wilderness

Baking Powder Facts
Everybody knov/3 that Dr. Price's Baking Powder is
a pure Cream of Tartar Powder. The names of its ingredients are published continuously, and scientists and
physicians declare that a cream of tartar baking powder
is the mo��t efficient and healthful. Cream of Tartar is
perfectly wholesome. It comes from the most healthful or
fruits, the grape.
There are other baking powders���made of alum���
which are altogether different. Alum is produced by a
mixture of aluminum rock and sulphuric acid, and a portion
of the alum i3 found unchanged in the food made from an
alum baking powder. This statement is confirmed by expert analysis, one of whom, who has made many official
tests for the U. S. Government, certifies:
"I purchased at retail store* baking powders which
I found to be made with alum, made biscuit with them
in the manner prescribed on the labels, and 'subjected
the biscuit to careful analysis. My experiments resulted
in the extraction of considerable alum from the biscuit
in every case."

The larch, or "tamarack," of eastern Canada will soon be commercially extinct. Already, according to
!>r. Gordon Hewitt, the Dominion
entomologist, the large larch saw-
fly ha* destroyed between fifty and
one hundred per cent, of the eastern
larch.     This  Insect   pegt   was  intro-
duced into the I'nited States from
Europe about 1Ss 1. and having few
natural enemies In America has
spread over the whole eastern half
of the continent, it is doubtful
whether    it  will    be   brought   under
It is a common superstition among
the woodsmen of eastern Canada
thai many of the "dead" larch trees
have come to life again. The trees
noticed were not really dead, how-
ver, but had appeared so, because
they had been entirely stripped of
their leaves by the larvae of Ihe
larch saw-fly.
The tamasack is a valuable tree
because of Its ability to grow in
swamps, and its wood is highly
esteemed for fuel, tlos, fence posts
and construction work generally.

and much oi the growth is of magnificent quality. Tie.* province bus nn

north from Seattle to Victoria, and
onward among the wooded islanels of
the strait or Georgia to Vancouver,
would reject with Incredulity any sta- j
tistics of its resources that might be |
pn! before him. Should it happen
that a forest fire is raging on the
shore of Pugel Bound and obscuring
by its smoke' the noble panorama of
the Olympic mountains, the traveler
may lament whal looks like disaster,
anel wonder how all these fore*st lands
Survive   tin*   risks   to   which   they   are
continually exposed.   I:' he is an Bng
lishmaii In* may reflect  that this de-
i-astatlng 1'ire* Is in  United States territory,  but   may  perhaps  take  .small
comfort from tha'.   We would recom-
I mend  him  to turn  for consolation  to
the official pages of the latest Hritis'n
Columbia blue-book.    The report of 11
fi.   MacMillan,  the  chief forester,  to
the'   minister  of   lands   for   the   yiar
101" has just been printed, and Is full
of interest anel of reassuring facts. To
begin with, we learn that per head ol
population the public revenue in British Columbia  i.-;  much  the highest in
Canada,  and   that   hy   far  the*  largest
item is the portion derived from the'
I provincial  forests.    A  very little further   Study   i f   the*   re*port   makes   it
, clear that tie* government of the prov*
j ince is keenly alive to the importance
j of  the   fact,  and   i.s   assiduously   protecting its possessions anel promoting
their  commercial   development.      in I
; their  efforts  to  preserve   the*  timber
from destruction they an. bountifully
helped   by   nature,   Forest growth in
many sections of tin* Povlnce is twice
'as rapid as the average for the conti-1
! nent, and the* annual growth of "mer- I
; chantahle material" in  Uritish Columbia as a  whole  i.s  .several  times  the
annual cut.    The fore's; branch of ihe
public   service   is   highly    organized,
I well equipped, zealous  and  alert, although the staff at. its disposal is still
Inadequate to administer properly and
protect from fire the 150,000,000 acres
i committed to Its can*    The* two chlet
J enemies to be feared are fire and 'he
'ravages of forest  Insects.    Tin*  hiss
from both is enormous, but Steps have
been  taken   to  fight them  both   with
energy.   The organization to cope* with
th**  lire  danger is  elaborate  and   is
meeting   with   great   ami     Increasing
success.    Tiier*   is  a    bieran hy    of
rangers   and      subordinate   officers,
largely  augmented   during   Un*   "fire
season" from May to the end of September:  and a  system * f lookout stations  witli   telephone  equiptm ;������   and
( connecting "trails" is being Introduced
by degrees.    The l;:rg*isl  single* class
of conflagrations is din* t*. camp fires,
j whicli carelessness alone makes dan-
I gerous.    'I I"   remedy  lien  mainly  in
education  of the  public, ami  ihis is
being  systematically   taken   in  hand.
Next   to  tiie.se.  in   iinnii i r  ceinie.  fires
, from locomotives, which are proving
amenable to direct conl ml.
Important as ii is, forest protection
should be regarded rather as the* negative side of the forest branch, The
positive side is rIir- promotion eh' in-
, dustry and commerce, w ith increase in
revenue as a result. These 150,000,*-
000 acres of tiieiiie r lands are a vast
J estate from which the* provincial exchequer draws, as we. have, seen, by
far the largesl item of its recolpts;
and to tin* proper management of this
estate it mainly looks for an expansion of its incline in tin* future, The
contributions to the revenue take* va-
! rious forms. At present the largest���-
. more than two-thirds of Lie total ���
consists of rentals thorn tbe holders of
licenses io cut timber for periods of
twenty years, hut the granting of fur-
, ther licenses is, for the present, suspended, Tin* next, but a much smaller Item, producing less than a fifth
; of tin' whole, is tin* royalty on oul timber, whicli is: levied and checked un-
li.i' a system of registered timber*
marks, one ef which must lie. placed
on every log. It is the scale, of ;hese
royalties that is now under legislative*
revision, so as to secure to the public
revenue a proper share of the rising
pric* of timber, It is calculated that
in ten years' time tiie governmenl will
receive from this soiree l.mmi.ooo
yearly, whicli is five times tl - amount
ir yields at present, Tie* most iin-
portanl   item   in   British   Columbia's
external trade is lhe expoi I . ��� manufactured limber, and up !���. now the
Canadian   prairie  lias   been   the best
market, but determined efforts will be
ma.!.' to secure ��� wUot scale.   Some-I
thing is hoped from the removal oi
tin* United States duty on lumber, and [
still   more  from  tiie  opening of  tbe j
Panama lunal. The pulp Industry ia in
its  infancy,  but  promises  we'll.    The!
forest branch regards the making of
the* commmfCtal   timbers  of  the  preiv

She has learned  from  the i xperience*

The Straight Line
in Creating Demand
"A Straight Line Ls the
Shortest Distance between Two Points''
Whatever troubles old Euclid gave us in our schooldays
his axioms were simple enough. In our business life
to-day we show a lively appreciation of the truth of this
axiom in cutting out superfluous efforts-in the saving of
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." It is
the shortest distance between raw material and finished
In Selling Goods, the straight line is
Newspaper Advertising.
It is the shortest distance between the seller and the buyer.
Some manufacturers arc applying the straight line in the
making of their goods, but neglecting it in the selling of
them. Some have no line of communication with the consumer at all--many let their message meander along bypaths of "chance acquaintanceship" instead of telegraphing it along the straight line of Newspaper Advertising.
Newspaper Advertising is the Shortest Distance between
the two points of "Supply" and "Demand."
If you are doing a local liiiainor, talk over your advertising
problems with lhe Advertising Department of this Newspaper.
If you are doing o provincial or national buiineaa n would
be" well for you lo have the counsel nnd assistance of a Rood advenes,

When asked if he had anything to say

down and between sobs cried: "I hav;

Arthur Leighton, counsel for the
prisoner, made a lengthy plea for tne
leniency of the court. Angelo had

never thought of till aff'*r the deeds
of lawlessness are done*. The prisoner
is identified with a very strong organization and it, no doubt, will look
after his family, lie is an alien, but
I do not consider that a point in his
favor. His appearance in this country
synchronized with the outbreaks on
Vancouver island. Wherever there
was tiouble there he was to be found.
Having regard to the evidence taken
at his trial, the e*ruel destrui tlon of

anything to say before sentence was
passed upon them and they wen sent
to jail for one year. These were Bob
Haddow, W. i. ardell, A Jordan, (lowland, Cierlello, Martin and Smith.
Haddow had two convictions registered against him, receiving a year's

tain he would never repeat the per- ;

counsel made a ple\i for leniency for
his client, but the presiding judge
frankly intimated that he had strong
views of his own in the I lodgkinson
case and preferred to reserve sentence' until the' i ml of the asis/.es.
Six   Months for  Cowler.
Addressing Tom Cowler, the miner-
pugilist, who was acquitted on the
charge of assaulting Provincial Constable Taylor and who pleaded guiity
to the charge of having taken part In
an unlawful assembly, the presiding
judge remarked that he did not at all
agree with the verdict of acquittal returned on the first charge mentioned
and on the other charge' sentenced
Cowler to serve six months in jail,
dating  from   his  first  arrest.
The same treatment was meted out
to Tony Mlnaldi.
Griffiths, who has heen ill recently,
said he was sorry for what he hsd
done' and  was willing to give an  un
dertaking  that  he  would  steer clear
Of such conduct in the future, so at)
was allowed to go on suspended sentence.
Ben Dominick, who, by the evidence
at his trial, was closely connected
wilh Joe Angclo's doings in Extension,
was referred to by the presiding
judge as a tool In designing hands.
"Further," his lordship remarked, "it
is m.v opinion that you could eoutil oil
the fingers of one hand the men who
are really responsible for lhe trouble

The question of the disposition of
the case of John Place. M.P.P.,
brought out a peculiar stale of affairs. Anticipating that the presiding
judge would allow the member of the
provincial legislature to go under sus-
penfieii sentence, counsel for Place,
Israel Rubinowitz, asked taht the con
vlcted man be sentenced to the term
he already had spent in Jail, pointing
out that suspended eentt nee might
prevent the member fVom running
again or even voting, while a sentence
did not op. rate thai   wai.
His lordship admitted thai the re
