Krafchenko's Guard
Makes Full Confessoin
Washington, Jan 21, An address
today by Baron Nobuagi Magino, the
Japanese foreign minister, to the parliament of Japan, outlining the status
Ol negotiations over the California
alien land legislation and declaring
that the Japanese government had
"come to see the necessity of considering some other way for solution of
the question," because the replies of
the United S'.atws had not, been found
satisfactory, was cabled in full from
Tnkio to the Japanese embassy here.
Note  Unanswered.
The address, which was not commented upon in official circles, announced that the third note of protest to Secretary Bryan by Ambassador Chlnda on Aug. IH remained unanswered, ll also revealed that the
ambassador, under Instructions from
Tokio, saw President Wilson on March
5, the day after the president's Inauguration and asked that he make an
effort to stop the threatened legislation in California which since has
bei n  i nacted.
A'lege   Discrimination.
"Tin* new act places Japanese on a
different footing from other aliens."
said the address, "and the main point
In dispute between the two countries
has In en the discriminatory treatment
resulting from this act. In view of
the situation which prevailed in California, the Imperial government believed it necessary to call special attention of the new administ atioii to
the subject and instructed our ambas
sador    to    seek  an   Interview   which
was   given   by   the   new   president   on |
March   5,   tho   first,   opportunity   presented  after  his   inauguration."
The  text  further outlines  the   pro-
ceedlngs   leading   up  to   the   passing j
or tin* bill and some, of the communications which  followed.
Although Ilu* address elicited no
formal comment from the state department, the conditions under which the
statement, that. 'Japan's last note remained unanswered," was made, will,
it Is understood, serve, to again direct
attention of tho state department to
liiis subject from which it has been
almost completely diverted for the
past  lour months.
Not a Protest.
The last Japanese note, it is said,
could not technically be described as
a protest, it was a refusal to accept
as oenvincing the argument laid down
io th;* state department in support of
its contention that the California legislation was not in derogation of
Japanese rights, either under the existing treaty of trade and commerce,
or those which Japanese enjoy in
common with other nationalities under
the terms of international law.
As no way has been found out of
this position under existing conventions, it is understood tho last Japanese proposition contemplates the making of a new treaty which might permanently settle the issues between
the two countries by precisely defining the rights of Japanese in America
and of Americans in Japan.

Wilh the passing of Lord Strathcona Canada has lost
one of the best friends, if not the best, she ever had ut court
and at this time, grieving over his death, the Dominion is
realizing his immense worth and the great bereavement it
has sustained.
Ripe in years and experience, but with his rugged
Scotch vigor as keen as when he governed the boisterous
voyageurs of the Hudson's Day company, Lord Strathcona
brought to the office of high commissioner for Canada
qualities the equal of which it will be extremely hard to
duplicate in naming a successor. As a champion of this
great country he stood without a peer; as a valuable advisor in its relations with the motherland he was unsurpassed ; as a friend of Canada and her institutions he was
loyal to the core.
Lord Strathcona lived to attain an age far past the allotted three score and ten years and for that long life he
had to thank his clean mode of existence and his indomitable will.
As a representative of the greatest of the overseas
dominions he did honor to the position he held and for
years this countrv and the old land will mourn the loss of
the simple minded, keen visaged pioneer who has so closely
linked his name with the growth of the British empire during this period.

The annual statement of the Royal Agricultural and
Industrial society of British Columbia, the organization
controlling the destinies of the provincial exhibition held
yearly in this city, which appears in another column of
this issue is just cause for a feeling of pride, not only
among the members of the society who have been directly
associated with it, but generally among the people of New
Westminster, the parent city of the great provincial exhibition of Western Canada.
With the best fair in the societv's history immediately behind them, the manager and his associates on the
board of control have fresh inspiration in laying their
plans for 1914 and, with the undivided sunport of the city,
the event this year should set new standards for the future.
What the exhibition needs is steady, not spasmodic
help and at that the help should not come from any one
section in the community, but from the whole population.
So far the fair here has no successful rivals in British
Columbia. Its high mark of excellencv has been maintained and advanced every year, but in the future the
competition promises to be keener and it will mean hard
work and brainy work on the part of those having direct
supervision of affairs to keep the exhibition at the top
of the list where it has stood so long and where it really

Wireless  Necessary.
"The"convention  provides that all
merchant vessels when engaged in international or colonial voyages,
whether steamers or sailing vessels,
and whether carrying passengers or
not, must be equipped with wireless

persons or more, except where that
; number is increased owing to causes

I contracting states, however, have tin*
discretion to make suitable exceptions
in certain eases, tin* most important
of which are vessels which on their
voyages do not go more than 150 miles

A continuous watch for wireless
purposes must be kept on all vessels
fitted with wireless telegraphy as
soon as ilu* government or state to
which the vessel boilings is satisfied
that such a watch is useful lor purposes "!  sa'. ing life at sea.

The following article by A. Q. Gardiner, editor of the London Daily
News, written early in 1913 will prove
of Interest to Canadians who mourn
the death which occurred yesterday of
Canada's "Grand Old Man.'' Lord
Strathcona and Mount Royal, high
commissioner for Canada in  London:
If your way of life carries you in
these days to the great public dinners
and functions of the London season
there Is one figure that will be more
memorable to you than any other. It
stands out from the background cf
conventional ligures like a solitary
snow peak from the browns and
greens of the valley, li seems divided
from all the rest by an Immeasurable
gulf of years. We an- of today antl
yesterday, but from what remote past
does this venerable guest come into
our midst? What tale does he bring
cf far tim -s and far lands? The
figure is bowed, but si ill agile; tbe
head, a splendor of white, hair white
as the driven hiiow. heavy white
brows overhanging the keen and
searching eyes, white beard, complexion white. It is like an allegory
of the Great While North. And the
suggestion is nol wholly fanciful. Per
this Lord Strathcona, and it is from
the frozen shores of Labrador that he*
bringB the snows of winters long ago.
Sydney Smith said of Maoaulay that
he was "like a book In breeches." One
may say of Lord Strathcona that he is
like Canada in swallow tails. He is
not so much a man as a legend���the I
leg ml of half a continent. You shake
hands with him and it is as if you
shake bands with a section of the
llritlsh empire. You talk with him
and it is as if Canada is before you
telling her astonishing story. And if
the accent still betrays some hint of
the highlands that only makes the impression more complete, for the online nt Canadian usually has bis roots
in Scottish soil. There have been
two great currents westward from
these islands across the Atlantic. One
has flowed from Ireland to the United States; one from Scotland to Can-
ad:.. Both have had their source in
the same tragedy���the tragedy of the
land. The Highlanders fled from theii
burning homesteads to find ultimately
a refuge in the solitudes north cf the
On at  Lakes, and  to  lay    there    the
���foundations Of a mighty nation. The
straths are desolate, and the deer
iwander over the ruins of the crofiers'
homes; but across the Atlantic the
seed blown from those straths has
made the plains to stand thick with
corn and the desert to blossom as the

Making a Flat World
Round -***>
When   Columbus   set  out  to  reach  India
by sailing west.ward, he met with opposition and ridicule.
He believed the earth to be round.
Wise men held that it. was flat that Columbus was mad
���and that he'd fall ofl' somewhere if he departed from
established beliefs.
But Columbus' belief found him a continent and made
him blessed of memory.
The Business World is flat to  some  men
Their profit-bearing shores of Opportunity stretch only so
far as their grandfathers trod. Custom,-superstition and
apathy have set them confines which they may not pass.
For instance, they believe the business year is a flat one���
not an all-year round of trade, with East joining West,
with Spring merging into Autumn��� but just two distinct
seasons, with cawed-off ed ;es gaping into space.
They confine their activities to a Spring trade and to a
Fall trade. To them there is no intervening continent
with stores of waiting wealth. Their world is flat. They
have not explored the mid-year months of Summer trade.
June, July and August are never-never land.
Surely this conception of Summer as a "dull" season is
as fallacious as the delusion that the earth was flat.
People have just as much money in the hot weather and spend quite
ns freely ns rn Spring and Fall. Granted that they are not buying
���skates and snow shovels in August, yet they are buying staple articles.
Furthermore, they have un eye on luxuries and comforts they are
counting upon purchasing in the Full.
The modern  Columbus has discovered this
Summer t rude���this golden West lying between the known
continents of old beliefs. Departing from established
habit, many have made their energies and their Advertising an all-year-round proposition.
Keeping up Advertising during the Summer months not
only links your Spring and Fall, but produces rich harvests from the Summer months themselves.

Toronto,  Jan.  21.���The    statement j
that the Canadian National exhibition
made  total  profits of  $101,644.21  last
year provoked  some Interesting comments al  a  meeting of the executive
committee  when    ihe    announcement:
was made that a check for $H2,r>SU.X7
had been  forwarded to the city treasurer,   that   amount   representing   the!
exhibition board's surplus after an expenditure of $39,063.87 on  permanent
Improvements at the fair grounds had 1
been   provided  for.
It was pointed out that  the exhibl-
tlon directors could show profits that!
would take care of a debenture issue'
of one or two million dollars nnd yet
the   ratepayers  refused  on  Jan.   1   to
vote  them  $600,000  for  the construction of a  new  machinery  hall,  a  live j
stcck   arena   and   other   buildings   required at the fair grounds.
The   hulk   of  the   money   spent   on

West Huron Member Likely to Reintroduce His Idea.
Ottawa. Jan. 21.���E. N. Lewis, member for West Hilton, is considering
reintroducing his famous Daylight
bill, anil will take up the matter with
the government at onec to see if it
can be made part, of the legislative
program. Mr, Lewis introduced his
bill in 1907 when it was then referred
to a committee, which reported upon
it favorably, it was not taken up by
the government of that day, however,
and has not since been before parliament. The measure provides that
during certain months of the year the
time on all clocks may be changed in
any municipality, so that all work will
begin earlier, antl consequently end
earlier in tin* afternoon, thus affording more time for evening recreation.
Sofia, Jan. LM. A striking illustration of the terrible human waste In
war is furnished by the census just
'aken of the new Bulgarian terirtorles
tcquired by conquest.
Tiie male population of that portion
if Macedonia allotted to Bulgaria was
reduced during the hostilities from
l",r, nee   ;,*  42,600.
In Bulgaria Thrace only 225,000
males remain out of a total before
the war of 494,000, while in the district of Mustapha Pasha, where fight-
ng waged long and fiercely only 4000
males are  left out  of 38,000.

pounds of beef cost lilm a nickel. For

bought twenty live big codlish,
Ilis visit to the grain merchant cost
him more. For he was forced to pay
15 cents for n bushel of rye���a sum out

| tiie seventeenth  annual convention of
Jthe  American   National  Livestock   association, by  Dr. T.  N. Carver, dlrec-
j tor   of   rural   organization   Bervlce   of
.tin* federal department of agriculture.
Organization, he said, was the best
way   and   tin*  only   practical  one.   by
which  tiie  farmer  might improve  his
*"in:s   in   every   way.     He  urged   l'ae
formation of communities into groups
who would  take up questions of  production,  marketing  and  improvement
of lands.   On the other hand, he warned the farmers against allowing such
organizations  to be  made  the  means
1 cf exploitation of unfit machinery by
unscrupulous companies, and cited instances    of    creamery    organizations
which frequently had done their members gross injustice because of their
being     made     the   channels   through
, which poor machinery was sold.
;    The life of the women on the farm
, came in for much of Dr. Carver's attention.    He declared that their home
' lives   should   contain   more   pleasure
1 and  less drugery  and  said that more
companionship   with   other   farm   wo-
j men  would  result  in  a feeling  of  co-operative friendliness among the farmers of a  community  which  would redound to the welfare, financially and
morally, of all concerned.    Dr. Carver
suggested that the farm women should
Bpend   much  of her time beautifying
the   home   place   and   making   it   the j
haven   for  "retired"  fanners,   instead
of  the  towns and  cities  In  which, he
believed,     n      large   portion   of   those
farmers   who   hail   accumulated   a   degree of wealth, made their final home.
Everett,  Jan  21.   Beginning    this

operating, with a single exception and

the City, so fro'm an industrial stand-
| point Everett has never been In a
healthier condition, for the thousands
oi nun employed In the industries are
making as much money as they ever
did. Prior to and since the holidays
sc,oral plants were closed down for
repairs but they are again operating
and expect to continue cutting.
Market Conditions Fair.
Market conditions are fair, report
manufacturers. Demand for Washington fir and cedar is good, though the
prices an* considered too low by producers. Tin* shingle market is stlffer,
for last week an advance of five cents
a thousand was paid, antl continues
to he paid for stars and clears. Local railroad officials assert there is a

Unconfirmed advices have readied
Everett that the Dominion government
contemplates protecting its; home Industries from American invasion by
establishing a lax of 16 cents per
thousand on all red cedar shingles exported from Hrltish Columbia.
Would Ear Americana.
While local manufacturers have received no official report regarding the
suggested action, nevertheless they
are willing to believe a tax will be
levied by the Uritish Columbia government on all Americans who buy
standing cedar and erect mills across
the line. The tax, explains producers,
would effectively restrain Americans
from successfully manufacturing
shingles in British Columbia and selling them in the United States.
All la;ge logging camps in the northwest, whose owners are members of
tin* Pacific Coast Loggers' association, an* closed down and until another meeting is held by the association in Seattle Saturday it will not be
known when the camps may be expected to resume cutting.
The surplus of logs on Puget sound
is   reported   small,     There  is  no  surplus  on  Gray's  Harbor,  while  in  the
Columbia   river  territory    tne     small
surplus now existing is rapidly diminishing to the vanishing point.    Loggers
in   the   Pacific   ocast   association,   af
ter  discussing  tiie   various  phases  of
the  market   condition   reached  a conclusion  that   no  benefit  would  be  accomplished  by   immediately  resuming
cutting in the camps, as to hank up a
surplus could not possibly stiffen the
prices for lumber.

P. Corns of Calgary Says It Has to as
It   Simply   Can't   Go   Higher���
H.  C.  of  L.  Bug.
Victoria, Jan. 21.���"P. Burns, Calgary," as he registered at the Empress
hotel. Is not a literary stylist nor a
learned political economist, but he
knows something about business and
he talks sound common sense. P.
Hums yesterday talked about the high
cost of living and he said some pertinent things.
"The price of meat is going to come
down. It lias to. It can't go any
higher." That seems reasonable, but
P.  Burns continued:
"The way to reduce the cost of living is to go to the land and grow
thingB. Put that in your press. Tell
every man you know to go out and
take a little bit of a ranch aud grow-
some cabbage, and raise some chickens and keep a few milk cows and
make some butter. I'll buy his produce from him. I shouldn't have to
go to New Zealand and Australia and
Japan for produce when I'm operating
my business In this fine big, rich western country.
"You tell the people for tne that if
they want to make things cheaper
that they should sell llielr automobiles
and quit swapping real estate and living off each other. Vou can't reduce
the cost of living by eternally increasing the cost of real estate by selling
!t and reselling it each time at an advanced price.
"Rut people are realizing that already I find that in the east- by that
Mr. Burns meant the middle west���
this real estate business is letting up
and people are going on the land and
buying a few cattle, it Is going to
take a little while before things will
Improve sufficiently for prices to be
affected, and the reduction will be
gradual, but tho process of getting
back lo a sensible basis is going on
in tho west already and it will continue,
"But 1 have just one thing to say.
Tell everybody to go out and buy a
hit of land and grow something. Make
this country rich in production and
the cost of living will come down."
Mr. Burns came to the city to meet
tho managers In charge of his business here and left later for Seattle.
He will he back in a few days for a
longer stay and intimated that he
might have an important announcement to make concerning expansion
in his local plant before leaving.
Queer Dietary Rules That Are Part ol
the Eskimo Religion.
To Illustrate one of the phases of the
native religion of the Eskimos, we may
cousider the question of food taboos, j
lu   the  mountains  of   Alaska,  on  the
upper Kuvufc and  Nontak  rivers, and
��� ui the headwaters of the Colvllle, tbe
prohibitions which applied to the eating of the flesh of the mountain sheep
nlone were as extensive as tbe eutire
dietary section of the Mosaic law.
A young girl, for Instance, might eat
only certain ribs, and when she wns a
little older she might eat certain other
ribs, but when she was full mown slit
would for a time have to abstain from
eating the ribs which had been allowed
to ber up to then.
After  a   woman   had   bad   her   first
child she might eat certain other ribs
after her second child still others, nnd
only   after   hating   bad   five   children
might  she ent  nil   the  ribs;   but  even
then she must not eat the membranes
on the Inside of the ribs    If her child
was sick she must not eat certain
ribs, nnd If two of her children were
sick she might nut eat certain other
ribs. If ber brother's child was sick
she might not eat certain parts, and
if her brother's wife died there were
still different prohibitions.
The  taboos applying  to the  ribs of
���dieep had relation to the health of her
children   and  of  her  relatives.    They :
also depended upon what nnimnls her j Canada  for  tht
relatives or herself had killed recently h^nr. tiomiitioii
and  on   whether  those animals  were
male   or    female.- V.    Stefanssen    lu

The pupils will provide their own

being a pair of pruning shears, a saw

The department expects that the instructor will be met on his arrival
by some responsible person, who can
provide him with all the necessary
information, so as to get th3 school
under way  without less of time.
!     San   Francisco,  Jan.  21.���The   Rev.
I Albert Kummer, who drew a picture
last Sunday for his congregation of
what he regarded as an ideal wife, has.
defined a "model husband." Here
are a few of the model's virtues, aa
set forth by Dr. Rummer's seraion:
Keeps his  wife young;  acquires accomplishments that are usually a wo-

financial account; Indulges in no expensive habits which he denies his
wife;  remains at home evenings;  is a
good provider;  never flirts or trifles;
is always a gentlemanly lover; makes
a   companion   and   confidante   of   his.
