Supporters of Both Parties in Ottawa House Interviewed
���Belief Voiced That Premier Will Not Allow Senate
to Block His Purpose���Government Bluff Called, Says
Prominent Liberal.
In view of the facl thut both parties I
In the Ottawa houae are laying claim
to the support of   the   country   at
large In their widely different attitudes adopted towards the naval bill,
Tlle New* yoBterday Bet out to Interview locally Bome prominent supporters of the government and also
a number ol Sir Wilfrid Laurler's followers.
The three members of the Conservative party chosen were Police Magistral,' ii. l. Bdmonda, third vice-
presiii. i t .,f the British Columbia
Conservative association und a past
president of the local association; W.
V. Hansford, barrister, secretary ol
the   New WeBtmlnster   Conservative
association, and John A I.ee, president of the board of trade an,I president t.f lhe HrlllBh Columbia Conservative association.
All  uf   these   expressed   their  views
without hesitation,
To secure opinions of supporters of
the opposition at Ottawa, the reporter
naw Oeorge Kennedy, ex-postmaster;
and Alderman J, B, Jardine.
Alderman Jardine did not care '. i
express himself publicly on lhe question, but Mr. Kennedy came out In
strong support of the action of the
Lib, ral majority in the senate, lis
forecasted it. sir George Boss' amendment presented in the upper chain
ber on Tuesday.
Following are the four statements
made lO The News
George  Kennedy.
"There is nd doubl In my mind that
the senate is doing exactly the right
thing in returning the naval bill to
the commons In an amended form."
sal,i Oeorge Kennedy yesterday when
interviewed by    The    News.   "They
realize by this action that tbo people
of Canada will probably have a
Chan.',' to decide on this mom, in tons
nqestlon of donating $85,000,000 for
battleships, which the electorate undoubtedly ln my mind have a right to
"The true policy In connection wld
any naval plan is that of 1909, when
the Liberals and Conservatives combined and passed a bill calling for a
speedy construction of a Canadian
navy The bill of lHI.'.i was moved by
Qeorge E. Foster and seconded by the
then premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
and later amended in slight form by
Mr. Harden.
"The Conservatives have Blnce seen
fl' to change that policy, sn that it Is
only right. 1 believe, for the senate
to demand tlie approval of the people
before thl   bill becomes h,w."
"iiu you think Mr  Borden will take I
Issue  with  the  senate  over  the latest
action of ihat  body and seek to curb '
the senior house ?"  Mr.  Kennedy  was
asked Iv.   The  News.
"That in up to thetn. In my opinion
they are making a bluff niul that bluff
has been called, 1 have strong
doubts, however, as to wl.ether tho
Conservatives will attack the senate,
as heretofore that party has been the
wrongest    supporter   of   the   upper

"Premier Borden will introduce
legislation as far aa Is In the power

the  power of the  senate.
"The country does not want another
general election at    this   time   and.
apart from a few disgruntled
politicians, there la no demand for an

In which H. L. KdmondB, third vice-
president of lhe B. C. Conservative
association and a past prealdent of
the New Westminster Conservative
association, expressed himself when
ask,*<l bis opinion.
On JiiBt whether It would be neces
sary to bring on an election and what j
the issue would be, Mr. Kdmonds
would not give an opinion, but In*
was Arm In the belief that Mr. Borden and his party would not rest until the navul bill became an actual

"Responsible governmeni means
government by the representatives of
the people elected to parliament and
not dictation by a few appointed to
tlle upper house und who In no wise
represent the opinions of the country
in matters of government,
"Premier llorden should not accept
the dictation of on senators In the
face ot the large majority he had in
the bouse of commons when the naval
hill  was passed,"
W. I'. Hansford, secretary cf the
New WeatmltiBter Conservative association, Bpoke in no unoertaln manner
when discussing the naval situation
at Ottawa and in no uncertain manner criticised the actions of Sir
(ieorge Robs, who moved the amendment that the bill should not be
pasBod without first going to the people on the Ibsuc.
"Sir George R-OSS has absolutely
stultified himself," Bald Mr. Hansford
"Kor 40 years ho waa one of the
greatest exponents of Imperialism in

to show her good faith by strengthening the British navy. Sir George Itoss
has   stamped   the  matter as   a  party
"On the other hand. Premier Bor
det, alv.**_.H haB contended that any
aid given to the mother country towards strengthening tlle navy should

John  A.  Lee.
"If  we  are  going  to  have  one.   flag
D'ld   one   empire   there   must neces
Barlly  be one fleet."    Thus.  It.    terse.
characteristic style John A, Lee, presi
.lent of the board of trade, deliver,,I
himself when asked his opinion upen
naval  matters.
"It seems unfortunate," went or
Mr. Lee, "that such an Important
measure as the present naval bill be
fore the senate--a measure of the
most vital Importance to the British
empire-should he considered a foot-
ball for partisan play. The people
ot Canada are sur, ly above partv

the loyalty of the Canadian people
Ihan to think that hey would with
hold tha' assistance which is the jn-.i
and adequate share of so important
a member of the family ef the Bri-
tains as is Canada. The only ques
tion is as to the best means of render

"I certainly favor the policy of Can

they bave undergone a self-examination, must be conscious that race
feeling plays no small part in their
attitude  towards the  foreigner.
"The desire to take it out of the
foreigner In matters of business is

no country are the Judges cud magistrates less inclined to show partiality
and some limes even bare justice to
foreigner claims. Nu people aim mure

There is no doubt that Japan is fully advised as to the disposition of the

time  It  would  take to strengthen  greatly  the  naval  defences  there,
It probably is assured that, in the race for the United States Pacific

'*.'*- THURSDAY, MAY 29, 1913.
Unlike humanity, few communities have greatness thrust upon them, neither are they born great,
but greatness in the sense applied to countries or
cities is almost invariably achieved and the achievement can only be accomplished by the qualities and
actions of the people constituting the community.
Outside confidence is never extended where self-confidence is not obvious, and unless citizens have, and
express in no uncertain manner, faith in themselves
and their city, it is a hopeless task to inspire in those
interest lying on the outside, qualities lacking at
Patriotism, whether civic or national, is a sentiment that can only be shaped to beneficent ends by
practical demonstration and application, and while
we are prone to find fault with conditions as we find
them we often fail to realize that they are due largely
to our own quiesence and that the remedy lies largely in our own hands.
Energetic action has been taken by the Boards
of Trade and other public bodies to bring about an
improvement in the marketing of our Fraser Valley
products and it is anticipated that by proper organization and businesslike methods a great good will
be achieved shortly; but it takes two to make a bar-
On the other side of this vital question we
have the attitude of the consumer and while it is
expected that no one will sacrifice their personal
right to secure in the open market the best value for
their money, at the same time they should insist,
where other conditions are equal, that preference
should be given to home grown and home manufactured products and they should patronize the shops
and institutions that utilize the money expended by
the consumer for purposes which result directly in
stimulating the business, social and religious activities of the home city.
To the end that the public at large may better
appreciate the large and varied products originating
in and about the city of New Westminster, the merchants and business men have co-operated in having a
Window Display of Home Products on Friday and Saturday,
May 30 and 31, and Monday, June 2.
It is hoped that it will serve as an object lesson to our citizens that will furnish them with a more intelligent appreciation of what they have at home and also as an inspiration to the farmers and manufacturers to lend every effort toward the conservation of their home market which has been so deplorably exploited by the organized aggressiveness of foreign producers. ���
It is possible that a number of our merchants have not yet been interviewed on the subject of making this display on the dates mentioned. If they will communicate with
Mr. Rashleigh, chairman of the Business Men's Association, Phone 868, or Mr. Darling, Acting Secretary of the Progressive Association, Phone 736, they will be furnished
with all the necessary information and a copy of the rules of the competition governing the window display contest.

Publli Ily work in regard to Burnaby Ih naturally divided Into three iii-*
Unci clasBlfloatlons: Residential, financial and Industrial.
After citing 'he various advantages
the municipality has to onvr, the report Keen till:
These pointi-i are all well worth advertising, anil if il waa not Just at tlle
present tine a quesUon of funds, I
would HtronRiy recommend an aggressive advertising campaign to attract
settlers, on the following lines:
M.Tke  It   Local.
localize the campaign to Vancouver, Westminster and surrounding dis-
tricsts. It Is usetless to advertise our
residential advantages to anyone un-'
less they have made up their mlndB to
reside more or less permanently on
the lower mainland, and that Ib my
reason for deprecating advertising In
publicity issues of newspapers, guides
and periodicals which reach a class
who are. as a rule, not particularly In-
tefeeted In our residential advantages
ami we are also in ench case In competition with the write tips of other municipalities, sn that only a very small
proportion of benefit comes our way.
1 would sugegst that large colored
posters be obtained or the views iii
different portions of Burnaby with a
suitable text 111 simple anil appropriate
type uiifllrlently large to catch the
eye even if pasBing tlieni In a street

and a different poster Issued nt intervals, so that every poster would be always fresh, The same porting stations  [,0 ft'thoroughly.
 ,.i    ,._     , . ,.,     .,,,.1     i.'iu.,. lulu     wmiM i
This would. In my opinion, save
the municipality thousands of dollars
for sidewalks, wv.tur mains, troads,
etc., as all settlers would be encouraged to locate where these 'con ven -
| ences could already be obtained and
j the time of the council and the money
Of the ratepayers could be otherwise
spent than In planning how to give
'conveniences to every person settling in Ihe bush on the promise of a
real estate agent, that a request to
the councll will bring all these conveniences to his door.
The  Right  Way.
Small   one  or   two   inch   advertise-;
ments  should  also be inserted in  the
right   location   In  the  daily    papers
TRese   would  also   be  altered   daily,
bul would always ask that cv, ry prospective settler apply al the municipal
hall tor Information  before building
| Such   un   advertising   scheme   would,
uu sure, receive the hearty co-op-w-
ation of all reliable real estate agents
and a greater percentage of our sei-
tlcra would receive what tiny anticipated.
A satisfied settler is the greatest
advertisement a district cm obtain,
and li:s advertising costs th" municipality nothing. Kaeh settler also
means a higher price for our bond Issues, a mailer or no small financial
One Step Forward.

right direction. I h ive atFo occasionally h-'d articles printed as newa, matters rMatlve to our Ouanciai pnuition.
etc., in the financial papers free of
Whilst advertising in the papers It-,
as a rule expensive, I have no doubt
COUtraots could be entered into giving us a small space weekly for a modest sum. Ily this means 1 havo no
doubt that considerably mere apace
would be given us for "write upa"
Blm'lar to the os *s already Inserted.
Keep the name of llurnaby before
the financial peoplo ef both Europe
and America, relate our progress periodically, emphasize all our good
points, iinch as borrowing margin, as-
sets, etc., and I believe such advertising would Increase the demand for
our bonds nnd the price thereof.
Needs An Expert.
Upon Ihls question I would not care
lo offer any suggestion. It would be
advisable to obtain the rervices of an
Industrial advertising expert to draw-
up a campaign which could be directed from this olllce.
1 In conclusion 1  would suggest  that
no considerable sum of money be paid
for publicity until such time as we can

Whn a novelty Is shown It ia ad

card should carry out the color
scheme of the window, small, artistic
but descriptive.
There are several kinds of windows
i as follows:    The bargain display, the
appeal  to common  sense, the beauti-
! ful window, tho display showing pur-
j pose.
I The bargain window is usually sen-
'sational and Is an appeal to economy
' hased on price, either to get rid of
slow moving stock or certain styles
! that have b.'en overbought This
j typo cf display often influences pew
i customers.
The "appeal to common sense" dls-
play   will  show   the  ordinary   staples
and   efforts  n-ust   be  made   to   show
i that Ihe articles are good articles for
\ the   price,   aud   quality   talk   usually
accompany these  types of window.
Dl autlful windows appeal to the
aesthetic sense; quality Is the basis
I of the appeal, and this window stig-
'gesls the character of tho business

iioun. recently retired as American
minister to China, In an address ui a
luncheon given in his honor by friends,
most of them members of the American Asiatic society. Owing to lack
of courts iu China to which a foreigner ruin resort to protect himself, be
declared, lenders must be protected
by "diplomatic support" from their
own   gOVC niment.
"I think you men who have had experience will admit that if all support
is to lie withdrawn from you because
of an objection to dollar diplomacy,"
-said Mr. Calhoun, "you will not feel
that you dare go far in business ventures in that country."
The retiring minister said he was
not criticizing the present policy at
Washington, but was discussing observations as an American citizen.

Just because you cannot spend a
fortune ou garden IHtlngB le no rea
son you should not have as convenient and Interesting a garden kit as
you please. The woman who makes
her gardeu with an old Iron spoon
may be successful, but the woman
who has a generous array of Implements at command Ib more likely to
have a garden that is worth while.
A big packing box at the entrance
to the cellar or smaller one, painted
to match thc house and provided with
a padlock, standing Just outside the
door, makeB a convenient receptacle
for the smaller garden tools.
The long rakes and hoes and spades
can he luiiig on the inside of the cellar wall, but the smaller rakis and
spades and hces, the weeder and watering can, the trowel, ball of twine, j
knife, pencil and notebook ean all bo
kept conveniently in the box, So can
dozens of other things which every
gardener accumulates and wants to
have close at hand ai the season advances.
A garden notebook of some sort is
of inti rest and help: Enter in it
carefully everything planted this year,
with dates ot plaining, of llr.st appearance above Ihe ground, of blossoming and of number ef flowers or I
vegetables picked.    Give location ofj
each crop and description of fertilizer
and  method of cultivation employed."
Next year such a book carefully kept
will   prove    Invaluable  In   the  planning and planting of the* garden.
If you cannot  afford one    of    the
lovely  garden     baskets  sold   to  hold
freshly   gathered   llowers  and   vege- j
tables, buy a small clothes basket or '
a strong market basket and stain  it.
it Will prove quite as useful for hold- .
ing the crops as one that costs three
times as much.
A kneeling board for the garden is
a boon to the knees. It can he used
when you are weeding, planting and
cultivating the flowers. Make it from
I Bquare piece of wool, perhaps 12 by
12 inches. Under one long edge nail
four supports three or four inches
hiiii to keep the board at a comfortable angle.
Pad the upper surface of the board
-.villi several layers of carpet. A cotton unified cushion can be used instead of a carpet if a very soft rest for
the knees is wanted.

Of late years beds of tropical planta
or subtropical planta have become
quite popular, especially on large estates, llut smaller beda on the cottage lawn anj alao very pretty and
lf the bed is fairly large, plant the
rapid growing castor oil bean In the
centre; around thia plant a row of
cannas; then one or more rowa of
coleus of separate colors; then a row
o fsome low growing plant, sueh as
Cineraria Maritime, or any of the
"duty millers."
The coleuB alone may be used for
bordering,and the outer row kept
sheared  fairly  low.
Many people deplore this regularity
of planting and shearing, but there
are quite as many who protest against
the irregular hit and miss, or, as
some call it, the "imitation of nature" way of planting. Either way
is very pretty and effective; the chief
point being that the plants grow well.
A bed of coleus Is a very pretty
sight. Have the bed slightly higher
in the centre than at the outer edge.
The soil for this should be a well enriched loam. Set the plants twelve
���io fifteen inches apart each way, setting each separate color in rows to
make any design desired.
When the plants begin to make
growth, free pinch out the centre
shoot to make them branch, and as
the branches grow out they may be
pinched back at the proper height
to give the bed an even rounded effect. Or the plants may be sheared
into any  shape  desired.
These sub-trcpical plants are all
lovers of heat and should not be
planted out until the weather becomes warm.
C. P. R. Having High Old Time With
Russians Who Line Free Rides
to   Destination
Calgary, May 28.���Unless steps are
taken by the different railroad companies to prevent laborers from break
ing Iheir contracts, a serious shortage of men in construction camps
throughout the wcBt wlll take place
and a corresponding stoppage of con-
si ruction operations on the new roads
will necessarily follow.
It has long been the custom of tbe
immigrants and others who desire to
come west to sign contracts with the
railway companies in order to get
free fare. Just as soon as they arrive they break their contract almost
wllh impunity.
According to railway officials in
thc city at present, the practice thia
season has so far been more prevalent, than in former years, and as a
result many gangs have been greatly
Three hundred and fifty Russians
some weeks ago signed contracts for
a season's work with the C. P. R. on
the western lines. They were shipped out to Alberta free of charge by
the company and a large gang was
put to work a few miles west of Cal-
No less than fifty of these Russians
jumped their jobs and came to Calgary. The local C. P. R. detectives
were put on the case with the result
lhat about a dozen of the contract
breakers were arrested and charged
before Magistrate Sanders with the
offence. All were ordered to go back
to work.

Chink With Classy Calling Card Will

When any person brings tidings as
to where considerable loot stolen
from the Bank of Montreal In this
city on the morning of Sept. 5, 1911,
is hidden it Ib only natural that po- I
lice officials, immigration officers and

Tom Soon Hlug, a Chinaman, whoBe
calling card looks like this: "General
Minister, King, N.W., Attorney of Pekln,, China and Emperor of Kngland
and Ottawa, a Canadian residing at
New Westminster, B.C."
Tom first told a plausible story of
where the loot is located, but on being questioned showered a whole
string nf Invectives on Mr. Reid, when
the latter gentleman decided the oriental was loony. He was told to vamoose, but, persisting in returning on
several occasions, he is now held
pending the examination of a lunacy
