Mexico Makes New Counter Conditions Which Will Not
Be Accepted���Special Meeting of the Cabinet Called
for This Morning���Congress to Grant President Wilson Full Power to Act���Indications Point to Drastic
Steps Being Taken by United States.
Washington, April 19.���Huerta has refused to accept
President Wilson's demand for a salute to the American
flag. In a refusal late tonight he countered with new conditions. Officials said these would not be accepted and
the program of reprisal would be carried out.
Secretary Tumulty announced just before 11 o'clock |
that President Wilson had instructed him over the long
distance telephone to call a special meeting of the cabinet
for 10:30 tomorrow morning.
Mr. Tumulty announced the president was preparing 	
to deliver a special message to congress tomorrow and j J Z^S^^^tl

has to advise on the Mexican situation
and probably before the president returns to the White House a resolution

would bear the construction of a re-
cognition of the Huerta regime.
President to Be Given Full Power.
In the meantime, tentative plans
were being made for legislative procedure which tomorrow may place the
full naval and military establishment
In the hands of the president for active war measures against the de facto
government In Mexico. The scope of
the authority to be conferred upon
the president, and the means to be
placed ln his hands for exerting that
authority will depend upon the president's desires.
When I'resident Wilson returns to
Washington early tomorrow morning
these desires will undoubtedly be submitted to leaders of the house and the
senate before the two legislative
bodies meet at noon. Then the president probably will go to the house to
read  a special  message  to congress.
Unless the Huerta government recedes and accepts the president's
terms tonight, Majority Leader Underwood will undoubtedly offer a joint
resolution In the house when It meets
that a joint session would be held at the earliest possible
hour, probably 3 o'clock.
"The matter is closed," said Mr. Tumulty. Huerta,
he added, had asked for no continuation of the negotiations and refused flatly to accede to what he called the
demand for an "unconditional salute.
Fitting Celebration of    Incorporation
of the City Held  Saturday���
Baseball a Feature.
I'ort Coquitlam city, true id its
reputation of celebrating every note-
worhy event in its history, rejoiced
over the first anniversary of its foundation on Saturday last.
The stores closed for the afternoon
and the citizens focussed ou the agricultural grounds, where, during the
sports, the city band regaled the
crowd  with excellent  music.
The formal celebration began with
the planting of three commemoraPon
trees by Mayor Mackenzie, Mrs. W.
G. II. Campbell, president of the
women's Institute, #and John Smith,
president of the Agricultural society.
But undoubtedly tlle most attractive
feature of the program, and as it
proved, the most entertaining, was
the baseball game between members
of the city councils of New WestmlnBter and Port Coquitlam. Notwithstanding Its being a source of merriment some glimpses of the old form
of famous players like Mayor Oray,
Alderman Dan Welcher and ex-Alderman l'\ Lynch were exhibited and it
may be safely said that the combination of laughter compelling Incident
and skilful play were like the scores,
eqoal. Both teams scored four runs,
and only the apprehension of being
unable to sustain the labor of taking
up the church collection next day
with his customary sprlghtllness im
tielled New Westminster's civic head
to propose a truce wilh honors even.

Reeve Lougheed, Maple Kldge, said
that altho'ugh not a fisherman he was

held in the Conservative club rooms
on Saturday afternoon when, after a
vigorous debate as to actions of the
orientals In invading the upper Kraser
east of the bridge, the following resolutions  were adopted:
The Resolutions.
1. Resolved that this meeting of
representative fishermen from the
Kraser river, east if the Westminster
bridge, is strongly of the opinion that
legislation or other protection should
be afforded to the white and Indian
resident population on both banks of
the river.
2. Resolved that the government's
aid be hereby requested to protect the
white and Indian resident population
from alien fishermen by such regulations as will prevent the Japs from
invading the few drifts in the district
which we represent.
3. Resolved that a committee of
four be empowered to prepare a writ-

Especially     was
vitally interested in the fishing industry which worked hand In hand with
settlement. He harked back to the
days when farmers could fish In the
summer and make enough to steer
them through the winter, while they
were clearing their land. Get the
Japs away from the industry and settlement along b oth banks of tbe river
would receive a good boost.
A i'ort Kells resident broke into the
discussion advocating a government
cannery, with white fishermen being
allocated to certain drifts. This idea
did not take well, a voice from the
rear com ink through with: "Aw,
you're  too  much  for creameries."

THAT "HARD TIMES" CRY.
The News got a new point of view and likewise a jolt
a few days ago when, in conversation with a Canadian recently returned to Canada from a period of residence in
North Dakota, it was told flatly and without sympathy
that we in British Columbia have been raising a terrible
hulabaloo about nothing in our talk of "hard times," "financial stringency," etc. To be quite candid, The News
was informed, without any rhetorical frills or furbelows,
that we in B. C. don't know what hard times are.
Then the returned Canadian went on to elucidate.
He remarked that he had stood outside the theatres and
had seen hundreds pouring on to the street after a show;
he had visited the railway station and was treated to thej ^
spectacle of many traveller^ going and coming; he had way rewlati'on"legislation'and
dropped into the interurban tram depot and there the carsi'"" "���".*��* ���"����^m-
were arriving and departing to and from all points with
seats crowded; the Friday morning market had claimed a
share of his attention and he couldn't get close enough to
a dairyman's stall to learn the price of butter; he had picked up a paper and had learned that a new mill was starting in one location, that others were reopening, that pres-1 uiaVwiu'be "the outcome of the rail
ent plants were being enlarged and that some that had | [0^flJatd^tlon in ,he Unlted Slates ai
been destroyed by fire were beginning afresh in other
spots.
"Hard times!" said the man from Dakota. "You make
me sick."
Then he went on to remark that if Dakota were enjoying what we here are pleased to call "hard times"
there'd be gladness in every heart in that state. Crop
failures in succession in a country where everything de-

Government Ownership the Answer.
'���Personally, I believe the answer t
the problem is government ownership
I am inclined to believe that tin
government will, iu time, insist upon
acquiring our roads at th-eir physical
valuation, while agreeing to take care
of the holders of securities.    1 believ*.
Now, you will be surprised when 1

lines will be going to the government
of the United States, hat in hand

railroad, for the New York Central,
for the New Haven and lor other
lines to make propositions to sell.

CANADA WILL OWN
HER RAILWAYS
Editor MacLean, of Toronto, Believes
Government  Ownership   Will
Soon  Be   Here.
New York, April 19,���William Kind
lay MacLean, editor and proprietor of
the Toronto World, and a leading
Conservative member of tho Dominion parliament, in which he has sat
for 22 years, believes the railroads of
the United Slate:. :uid of Canada will
bo owned and operated by lhe government within a comparative iy tew
years.
Mr. MacLean sees no cither outcome or the constant strife over rates,
of the conditions which produce crip
pling strike k and of the demands of
the people of this country and Can-
tula  fur Improved service.    In  a talk
wilh a reporter, the editor sharply

Canada Has Railroad Situation.
"Canada haa a railroad situat on,"

lack of policy. We have the ('anadian Pac.file, a wonderful success in
many respects, which Is still growing; the Grand Trunk Pacific, the list
mentioned being uncompleted, it has

owned by the stockholders of the
old Drank Trunk. Then, too, there

Hon. Charles is. Devlin Has Been nn
Active Politician.
The Hon. Charles ftamsay Devlin,
Minister of Mines, Game and Fisheries in the Quebec Government, reports as lo whose recent sickness
caused anxiety to his friends, has bad
perhaps a more varied parliamentary
career than any other man at present
living in Canada, says Chesterfield in
The Family Herald, lie ha" been a
member of both Dominion and United Kingdom Parliaments as well as
ol the* Quebec Legislature, in which
he still holds a seat. No one needs
to In* told that Hon. Mr. IsVivUn Is of
Irish descent or that he is a native of
Aylmer, Que., a pretty place, and
oneo a very important commercial
and transportation centre, on the
Ottawa river a few miles above the
city of Ottawa. He was born In 185S,
receiving his education at Montreal
College and Laval University. For
some years after leaving college he
was engaged in mercantile and Journalistic work, during which time be
made his maiden speeches. As a boy
lie manifested somewhat of a preeos-
ity in the direction of oratory aud
elocution, and an old member of Parliament some time ago related to the
writer that when "Charlie" Devlin
was a stripling it used lo be a practice wben Parliament was in session
for a parly of members to drive each
Sunday afternoon to Aylmer to visit
the Devlin family; a feature of tbelr
hospitable entertainment each visit
being the recitation of some classical
oration or the delivery ef an original
speech by the youth who Is now a
member of the Quebec Cabinet. Not
only did the embryo statesman have
ambition as an orator, but be had
ability. Some men's maiden speeches
are hardly manly, but Mr. Devlin s
were from tbe very llrst of a vigorous
character. Moreover, he spoke English and French with equal eloquence
and fluency. His attainments soon
won recognition, and he was elected
to the House of Commons for Ottawa
County in 1891, being the first Liberal and last member ever returned
for the old County of Ottawa, now-
divided into Wright and Labelle. In
I89ti he was elected for Wright, one
cf the two new constituencies formed
from the old one. He resigned the
seat to accept the appointment of
Canadian Commissioner for Ireland,
holding the appointment until 1903,
anl making frequent speeches setting
forth the advantages of Canada as a
land for settlement.
These speeches established his reputation as a speaker in a country
which is famous as a producer of
orators, and his services were enlisted, readily enough we might easily
believe, on behalf of the Irish Nation
alist cause. In 190*.l he wus with the
universal approval of the Irish party
leaders, tendered the nomination for
Galway City, accepted it, ran and was
elected by acclamation, a similar result occurring at t j general election
three years later. While a member
at Westminster, Mr. Devlin made several notable speeches and rendered
good service to bis party as Secretary
of the United Irish League. In November, 190?, Mr. Devlin resigned Lib
seat for Galway, returned to Canada,
aud was at a bye-elestlon on Dec. 20,
the same year, elected to the Canadian House of Commons for the County of Nicolet. The following year he
resigned his seat in the House of
Commons, having agreed to accept a
portfolio in the Godin Government at
Quebac as representative of the Irish
people of the province. He was ai
once sworn in as Minister of Colonization, Mines and Fisheries, aud was
elected to the Quebec Legislature for
Nicolet at a bye-election Nov. 4,
1907; being re-elected at the general
elections of 190S and 1912, but electing to sit for the new northern county

Canal Hospital Service.
Conditions approaching those ol
a well equipped army will prevail in
connection with the building of the
new Welland Ship Canal at St.
Catharines, Ont. Dr. McCoombs is
in charge of the hospital and medical service which the Government is
instituting,  and  says:
"The main hospital wlll be on the
Havens farm on the Queenston and
Grimsby road. This will be thoroughly equipped, and capable ol
providing accommodation for thirty
patients, with small separate places
for men suffering from infectious
diseases. There will be a thoroughly competent staff of nurses and doctors, as well as good office and clerical staff. At Thorold we shall have
a small branch hospital for about
ten patients. This will be used ns
an emergency hospital. In case ol
bad accidents. There will be another
such branch hospital at Fort Welle;.
"Along the line of lhe canal, dispensaries will be located, where the
men who are sick will receive medicine. Three doctors will be constantly patrolling the canal, so that
there will be no lack of attention
An ambulance will be established
and smull stretchers will be in every
camp. It Is my intention lo have the
clerks and time-keepers on the canal
thoroughly drilled ln llrst aid work.
Each will have a medical and surgical case, and be taught how to handle It. We shall give a prize of $50
every six months to the man who
proves most efficient."
The Cunning Foxes.
Mr. Mark Wilson built a fox corral
last summer and has had 1*1 his possession nine or ten red foxes. These
were In a wire enclosure covered over
with  wire,  and  a cement  floor,  the
wire being embedded In the cement.
Notwithstanding   all   these   precautions, Mr. Wilson has but five foxes

taj.-Oen. Cotton   Holds Seniority  of
Service In Canadian Force*.
Born in tbe cily of Montreal, and
:a.iiig in the course of his duty as a
isrmanent officer been stationed in
'.irn at Kingston, Quebec, Ottawa,
..ondon and Toronto, Maj.-Gen. 11. W.
"otton, inspector-General of the Can-
I'lian Militia, wLose appointment bus
Seen extended to March next, when
ue will retire, is widely known iu
Canada. He ls one of the oldest olli
sen of the permanent force, probably tbe very oldest in point of
swearing in. When, owing to the
withdrawal of the permanent troops,
tbe duty was forced upon the Canadian Government of organizing a couple of artillery corps to garrison tbe
fortifications at Quebec and Kingston.
Col. Cotton was a captain ln the old
Ottawa Garrison Artillery and applied for and was given a commission
in the new corps tben being raised at
Kingston, which subsequently became
"A" battery, and eventually was tbe
colonel of the present Koyal Canadian Horse Artillery.
In his younger days Gen. Cotton
was recognl/ed as one of the best rifle
shots In Canada and twice went to
Wimbledon as a member of tbe Canadian team. He has never since failed to take an active Interest in rifle
shooting and artillery practice. He
entered upon his first staff duties In
1882, when he was appointed tu the
command of the artillery school connected with A Battery and wus appointed assislan* Inspector of artillery. He retained those dual appointments until appointed district officer
commanding tbe old third military
d strict witli headquarters at Kingston. Later he became Inspector of
Artillery, commanded military district No. 4, Ottawa, and was Asslst-
ant-Adjutant-General for Artillery at
headquarters. He has also been Quartermaster-General, Master-General of
the Ordinance, Officer Commanding
Western Ontario Division with headquarters at Toronto. He commanded
the first lnfaitry division at tbe Quebec tercenterary review.
Apart from a few months' service
during tbe Fenian raids, Gen. Cotton
has not had a chance ln e tive service.
At the time of the Northwest Rebellion of "SS5 he was commandant of
the Citadel at Quebec and though all
of the other regulars In his garrison
were sent to the fe.ont 'ie was or lered
to remain at Quebec. At the time of
the South African war he was again
unable to leave for Africa, hia services being needed at Ottawa in connection with the equipment, and despatch of the various contingents. He
was represented on the field, however,
by his son, who enlisted Into the first
Canadian contingent from the Victoria Rifles of Montr al, and gave bis
life for the Empire at Paardeoerg.
A man of calm, unruffled disposition,
never over exacting, and always anxious to give full credll to bis subordinates, Gen. Cotton is much beloved ln the militia, and every officer and
man wbo bas served under him will
regret his retireme et. Mrs. Cotton,
who has always been a prime soi ial
favorite, was tbe daughter of t.ie* late
John Finder of Montreal. ��� Family

Wireless Is In Demand.
The extent to which wireless telegraphy under Government control Ih
being utilized by the people of Canada ts shown by statistics contained
in the annual report ot the Naval Service Department.
A total of 272,087 messages, ron-
talning 4,275,759 words, were handled during the year by the coast station services, acainst 1&6.250 messages and 2.839,455 words during
the preceding year. This Is an Increase of 75,837 message and 1,436,-
314 words over 1912.
Even as It ls, the existence of the
present Government service and the
eontraot with the Marconi Company,
covering the stations It operates, has
saved    Canadians    thousands   every
year.
At Its inception In 1909-10 the total number of messages handled was
only 84,077. and of words 1.222.784.
In 1911, 119,C68 messages were sent,
and in 1912, 196,250. The West Coast
service, which is operated directly by
the Government, handled In 1913,
about two milion words, and the Bast
Coast about a million and a half, the
Great Lakes service making up the
remainder.
There are now forty wireless stations in Canada, additions having
been made during the year. With the
Improvement of the Montreal station,
It will be possible next spring to
establish through communication
from Montreal to the ocean.

he was generous in giving advice on

down, or up, to the office boy. He
liked to have things done Just right,
and he never hesitated to correct an
error or make a timely suggestion
for improvement or advance���that If
until he overheard one day a con

another office boy from another city
office. "What's yer wages?" ask.1*

Western Forestry Improves.
K. H. Campbell, director of for
estry, who has returned from a tour
of inspection of the Dominion forest
reserves in the west, says: "Unquestionably tbe work there ls in
better shape this year than ever before. Not only have lire-lighting
facilities, such as trails, lookout
stations, telephone lines, tool caches
and fire guards, been very much Improved, but the construction of good
roads has made the pleasure resorts
In these reserves more accessible tr
the public."

and poultry. IV. < rywKen the lecturers appeared good crowd-: greeted
them and the :'n,-iin>rs seemed eager
to learn new ideas. .Mr. ricliiiliiiericli
says he notei i --'e'e'iit difference In
this respect over that of four years
ago, when he gave his first series of
lectures under Vne auspices ol lhe Ci
nadiaii government,
'Ii'.i- tanners of British Columbia
are ter lie.hind those of Oregon in
dairying and l'l'u't raising, but more
advanced in poultry raising, Tli" great
trouble with tie' termnn ol that country is that they are fa j, behind In up
to date method! Of farming and are
wasteful of what Ihey raise. At Sal
mon Arm, the fruit growers have
formed an organization Ubrcugh which
they  sell   Iheir apples  and  Lay  their
produce. Dairying is well advanced
there and good stock is kept, Hoi-
al ins hi Ing tlle principle breed. The
soil there is good, being a clay subsoil. The dairymen sell their milk In
the towns, for which they receive 10
cents per quart.
Seer. No Change.
At Mara, in the Okanagan valley,
Mr. Schulmerlch saw no change for
tin* better in farming methods since
be was there four years ago. Timothy
hay is the principal crop and this lias
been raised for so many yiars that
the soil has been depleted. Soil and
Climatic conditions are good here for
the raising of alfalfa, and tliis crop
would put nitrogen back into fee soil.
Practically no cattle are kept by the
fanners  of  this  section.
Vernon ia a town of 3,000,' and Mr.
Bchulmerlch found laud in this region
given over to the raising of fruit, prin- I
Clpally  apples.    Near  Vernon he saw |
a  farmer  feeding 1,700 shtek f:om a |
stack of hay in a field.    The farmer
drove to the stack and loaded a wagon with the hay and then scattered it
over the  ground for lhe s'leep.    The
animals  ate  a  little  of  the  'nay  and
trampled the balance under foot. The.
hay  is never put under cover and in
consequence about one-eighth of it is
lost by spoiling.   As long as the farmers   pursue   such   wasteful     methods
they   will   never    prosper,    says   Mr.
Schulmerlch.     From   Pentlcton   south

Miss Frances Starr was see n in
Vancouver in this play a few years
ago at top prices, and it was the
biggest success of the B'ason. It is _
real drama, the kind that gets Into
your heart and grips you with Its real
human interest, its rich humor, its in
tensely real pictures of life as life is.
You find yourself wishing you could

CFSOHrtl|her struggle for right, and bating
Hardison, the man of the world, and
laughing at the humorous sayings of
Elfie, the "I should worry" chorus
girl. In the end you leave with the
feding of an evening well spent.
Viola will be portrayed by Miss
Vaughn, the best liked leading lady
ever setn here, and crit.es everywhere have called her performance of
this part simply marvelous. The entire cast will be in capable hands, and
a finished  production  is assured.
The sp!( r:did Stage room t.> b ��� had
at the opera house will enable' the
company to enhance their efforts by
suitable scenic effects, and give them
every advantage that heretofore they

Burquitlam Defeated 4-1���Draw Battle
Between Canada and Scotland���
Heavy Scoring.
Scotland and Canada, or rather soccer teams representing the two countries, fougth to a draw at Moody park
Saturday afternoon, the battle ending
in a tie, four all.    Weakness of both
defence  divisions  accounted   for several easy tallies while a tendency on J
the part of certain players to dirty tae-
ticts allowed several fouls and penal* ]
ties.    A  icplay will likely take place |
iu two weeks' time.
At Sapperton park Burquitlam found
tbe going rough In a city championship |
game against Sapperton, losing out,
4-1. The result was never ln doubt
and towards the close of the second
half the home team slowed down on
its rushes. Sapperton will meet the
City eleven on Saturday in the final
for the City cup.

CANADIAN PACIFIC
Ottawa,  April  19,    A  new  interpretation   of   the   recent   urdi r-ill-couneil
prohibiting the entrance Into British
Columbia of all artisans ami laborers
has been made here, it was though',
at first that, owing to the Chinese act,
the order-in-councll did not affect Uie
entrance' of Chinamen, However, after
a close study of the legal aspects of
the question, it bas been decided that.
under present regulations, the government can, if it su dealrea, exclude all
newcomers from China, and in vie a
of the recent racial difficulties in
British Columbia the government maj
avail itself of this Interpretation. The
only nation now excluded from tii*'
provisions of the order are Japanese,
whose case is cove reel by tie treaty
arrangement with that country.
Ottawa is awaiting with considerable interest and some anxiety tli"
arrival of tlle steamer which lias sail
ed from Shanghai with four hundred
Hindus, wbo, it is claimed, will endeavor to test the legality of tiie recent Canadian orders in-council as to
J their rights as British subjects. The
steamer is expected to arrive at Vie-
j torla about   May   1.  and  orders have
j been si nt to the coast tei prohibit the
entry  of  the  immigrants   if  they  an*
' entreing in contravention of the pre-
j ent regulation.
Owing to the present feeling at  the
; coast with regards to Orientals generally there is some fear here that trouble might develop.

Washington, April 9. Advocates of
the exemption of American coastwise
vessels fn in Panama canal tolls had
their inniiiK today before tin* senate
caaal committee when the* tirst witnesses appeared in apposition to the
repeal of the exemption clause.
Cormer Attorney Oeneral Charles
Bonaparte, of Baltimore, Md.; Russell
L. Dunn, of San Francisco, and Itep
resents tlve Humphrey, of Washing
ton, attacked the repeal on various
grounds. James Hrown Scott, s' cretary of tho Carnegie endowment for
international peace, was questioned
by Senators Bristow and O'Oorman
i* to the motives of the organization
in participating in the propaganda for
tin* repeal of the exemption clause.
Mr. Bonaparte asserted no nation
would have been so foolish as to bull I
the canal with the understanding that
it was to derive no special privileges
from the canal. He said the position
that the I'nited States was bound bj
the same conditions in the us.- of the.
canal as the other nations of the world
was "unreasonable and absurd under
all circums'.ances."
Mr. Dunn spoke of the economic Importance of free tolls, to California in
particular,
Representative Humphrey said the
benefits the Pacific coast slates had
expected from the canal wore* ahem;.
to lu* given to liritieh Columbia.
Senator Bristow aroused Dr. Scott's
Ire by asking if the Carnegie endowment was not espousing the claims of
(ireat Britain in advocat'ng the repeal or toll exemption and circulating
some 70.000 copies of Senator Root's
������speech ravor'ng the repeal. Dr, Suit,
inei-", d neither he nor the* endowment   (������": (Ii ii it '"usiv  advocated    tin*

I'lara Sims and Vera Clark were
brought before C. K. Hlxby and O. L.

SAYS  BRITISH   PRESS
IS NASTY TO CANADA
Ixindon, April 19.���J. R. Tennant Is
a man whose word counts in London
financial circles. "It seems to me," he
said, when presiding rt this week's
meeting of the Anglo-Canadian Finance corporation, "that every newspaper I pick up has something nasty
to say about Canada, either in the editorial columns or ln the speeches of
chairmen of banks."
The Preat and Canada. 1
That ls a sweeping and somewhat I
astonishing assertion,    lt makes one
wonder what papers Mr. Tennant is In
the  habit of  reading.    He  certainly
cannot read most of the leading journals of Loudon and the provinces, for
taken as a whole, their references to
Canada are sympathetic,  informative
and fair.    Mr. Tennant cannot surely,
attach importance to such journalistic
enemleB of Canada as "John Bull." No
doubt what he has In view Is the way
ln which a few financiers and finance
writers, euch us .Mr.  Thorpe, finance
editor of the  Pall  .Mall Gazette, and
the  Observer,   have   in   recent  weeks
urged  that Canada would  be wise to
moderate the pace of her national and
municipal   borrowings.     But   so   sar
as the most authoritative Englishmen
a:e concerned there Is no difference of
opinion upon the point that really matters,  namely,  tiie fundamental  soundness of Canada's financial and industrial position.
Nobody who studies the British
press can fail to realize that Canada
is under an enormous debt of obligation to their editors for the fullness
with which they have come to treat
Canadian questions, especially when
we remmeber what au enormous demand is made upon their space by
events in all those parts of the world
whit-el looks to Ixindon for financial
support. For every inch of space devoted to the United tSates at least
two inches are devoted to Canada in
most of the leading journals.
SEEK TO QUASH BYLAW
LIMITING SHOP LICENSES
Toronto, April IS.���The esse of Pat
rick Henry Wall vs. the City of Ottawa, seeking to have the bylaw limiting the number of shop licenses
quashed, came up before Chief Justice R. M. Meredith at Osgoode hall
and  was enlarged  for one  wtek.
James Harverson. K.C. for the
liquor interests, explained that the parties tad consented.
"But 1 have not been consulted,"
said the chief justice. "I must think
of the clients and must not allow them
to be charged with unnecessary
costs."
"It's wSBted sympathy," responded
Mr. Haverson. "One is a liquor association and the other is the corporation of Ottawa.
The chief justice remarked that they
had been spending a great deal of
money one way and another and had
been having their ups and downs and
he thought he should consider them.
Mr."Haverson said he was going to
file 98 affidavits.
���'If one affidavit won't do It," said
the judge, "do you think a hundred
will?''
"We are seeking to set aRide the
bylaw on the ground of insufficient
accommodation at the polls," returned
Mr. Haverson. "There are 98 polls. I
never thought of filing affidavits for
amusement, I assure you."
Mr. Haverson declared he wanted
the matter disposed of before the 20th
when the license commissioners meet.

L'nder the political institutions enjoyed by the people of Canada, it baa
been found possible to carry on a
government that insures to tbe governed the greatest measure of liberty
thut Is consistent wllh order, that
guarantees to each citizen the enjoyment of the fruits of bis Industry, and
encourages national development and
progress. For these great blessing.-*
the Canadian people must thank tbelr
heritage ln tbe British Constitution,
wblcb, under a government monarchical in form, gives to tbe people responsible and elastic democratic rule.
These thoughts are suggested by
the session of our Federal Parliament
which has Just begun, says a writer
in The Montreal Standard, and tbat,
too, tends to cause one to look backwards to tbe beginning of government
in this country, and to contrast the
Institutions of long . go witb those
under wblcb It is our good fortune to
live. This backward glance enables
us to see how far the world bas moved In the matter of government since
while men came to the valley of the
St. Lawrence and planted here the
seeds of civilization.
Canada's earliest rulers were trading companies Ibat, tn consideration
ot monopolies grant d them ln tbe
fur trade and tne fisheries, under- a
took to rule tbe country for the Kli g
of France and develop lt as a colony.
Among these early mercantile rulers
were tbe Company of Merchants of
Kouen and St. Malo, tbe Company ot
Canada, tbe West Indies Company,
and lastly tbe largest and best-known
of them all, tbe Company of One
Hundred Associates.
The  companies  did  something  to
colonize and to protect the colonists,
but on tbe whole they did more to>
prosecute  tbe  fur  trade  and enrich
themselves.   Corpora^n-rule did not
prove a success, and S-ially in 1663 It
was brought to an end, and royal government was set up.   That year ls a
starting point In what may be called
tho history of government and laws
ln Canada, for tbe consequences  of
many   things  done  by  that first ot
Canadian royal governments Influenced  the  course ot  Canadian  history,
and are felt to this day, especially ln
the Province of Quebec.
i      The beginning of royal government
I and local legislation in Canada takes
<   c back to the year 1663, when Quebec City was only fifty-five years old.
and   Montreal only   twenty-one,  and
when  the great Western wilderness
of the Ottawa, the Upper St. Lawrence, and the Great Lakes reached
down to the very walls of the little
fort  that Malso neuve had built on
what  Is  now  part   cf   the  business
quarter ot Montreal.
The seat of that first of Canadian
r-'yal governments was Quebec, which
to-day is well and truly called the
"Ancient Capital."
At   tbe  bead    of    the  Government
was   a   Governor-General,   appointed
by   the   King  of  France,   whom   the
Governor-Gen.ral represented and a
small part of whose giory the Governor-General was permitted to reflect
In   the   miniature  court   that  In   tb��
rather rude palace on the heights of
Cape  Diamond  mimicked  the   pomp*
of Versailles.
Judging from his title and mmr
a considerable part of his commission,
the Governor-General of Canada was
tho all-powerful local head of the administration whereas. In fat, he was
not so. His powers were limited and
confused by the very warding of his <
commission and of his instructions,
and they were further limited by tbe
powers of another high officer, who*
was generally considered to be subordinate to the Gcernor, and yet
who, with respect to some matters,
seemed to have outranked him. That
second high official wa. the Inten-
dant. ''
The Intendant was virtually a spy
on the Governor, and every year he
sent to the Minister of Marine, whose
department administered colonial affairs, letters, often forty pages In
length filled with the secrets of the
colony, political and personal, great
and small. The Governor also wrote-
letters, and each was jealous of the
letters of the other
To assist the Governo and the In-
te.-idant there was a body known as
the Sovereign Council, composed of
the Governor, the Intendant, the
Bishop, and at first of five other councillors, but whose number was subsequently Increased to twelve.
This remarkable Council combined
some of the advisory and executive
functions  of  the Cabinet of to-day.
with some of the legislative functions ���
of Parliament, and tbe functions both
of a trial court and a court of appeal.
The law that it enforced and, ther,'-
fore,   Introduced   Into   Canada,   was
what was  known  in   France as  the-
"Coutume de Paris"���the Customs ofe
Paris,  based  on  the ancient  Roman
law.
The rule of the Governor, the Intendant, and the Sovereign, or Superior Council, coi tinued to the end of
tbe French regime. It had Its qualities, especially with respect to military affairs, for lt made New France*
the strongest fighting unit on the con-
tlient.
With respect to civil matters, the
system did not work remarkably well.
In fact, lt seems to have worked remarkably 111, for a French writer in
describing the state of Canada in
1758���two years before Its surrender
���says that lt Is the "country of
abuses."
Such, tn outline, was the first royal
govi -nment ln this country���a system tbat came to an end with the
surrender by Vaudreull at Mon real
ln September, 1760, after on hundred
years of existence.
