Ottawa, March lei.���J. C. Watters,
president of the Trades and Labor
congress ot Canada appeared today before the special oommltte of the commons to inquire Into an amendment
of the election act. Mr. Watters asked that election day should be made
a general holiday and that voting be
made  compulsory.
The chairman (Hon. C. J, Doherty)
said. 'Do you mean that a man
should he* compelled to vote or compelled to go to the poll?"
"I realize that you cannot make a
man vote. Hut he ought to be compelled to go to tht! polls so that his
name could be struck from the list of
voters and thus the risk of impersonal ion would be reduced," replied Mr.
Watters.
Two   Hour  Holiday.
Mr.   Waiters  contended   in  support
of  tiie  claim   for  a   holiday   that   an
I employer would refuse to give a holiday  to a man  who was known  to be
a partisan  to a  man  opposed  to the
employer.   A couple of hours holiday,

A further plea made by Mr. Wallers was against the putting up of
jan elfictlop th posit Of $200. The de-
l.e.'sil was of e*n a restriction on the
candidature of candidates among the
working  men.
"But would not that government be
a tremendous weapon to unscrupulous people who might put up one
hundred candidates to destroy another man's chances?' 'he was asked.
To meet tliis objection Mr. Watters
suggested that no candidate should
be permitted to run unless his nomination papers were signed by fifty
cr one hundred electors.
"Personally," said the chairman. "I
would rather see some other test than

London, March 14.���There is this
morning a new and a very important
development in regard to the South
African situation. The Daily Chronicle
one of the chief Liberal newspapers,
publishes under the head lines in big
type: "Smuts' statement as to the
South African deportees has caused
the general departure of white workers from the Rand, thus shattering
the cursed ideal of a white South
Africa."
The statement that the national
trades union and labor conference will
meet In t.ondon on April 7 to decide
upon future action in support of the
nine men deported from Soutii Africa,
in made.
The Chronicle recognizes the difficulty of the situation, admitting that
no one has the power to compel the
South African government to alter
Its decision, but suggests that J. Ramsay Macdonald, the leader of the British parliamentary Labor party, should
be 6ent to South Africa as a special
commissioner to intercede with Premier Botha on behalf ot- the-exiles. It
is admitted that the Imperial government has received strong "protests
from influential business interests in
Soutii Africa against the Afrikander
policy of the South African union. It
Is known that hundreds of Australians
have left South Africa and returned
to their native country determined to
make the attitude of tho Hotha government an Imperial question by urging that their subjects should have
protection against the Afrikanders.
But as was pointed out by Colonial
Secretary Harcourt In the recent debate in the commons, there seems to
be no remedy.
���South Africa has heen glveu self-
government and so long as the Hotha
government retains the confidence of
a majority of the electors, it will be
Impossible for the imperial government to interfere without shattering
the basis upon which all self-governing dominions have been built up.

Ottawa, March 13.���It is probable
that the debate on the transcontinental report will take place next week,
possibly Tuesday .Sir Wilfrid Laurier suggested that date to the premier
this afternoon and Mr. Borden replied
that he would consult Hon. Dr. Held,
acting manager of railways and let
the opposition  leader know  later.
Announcement was made by Hon.
George Bi. Foster that legislation will
be Introduced shortly to give the grain
commissioners more control of the
grain elevators from Fort William to
the ocean. Mr. Foster stated that at
present the government had not sufficient control of this portion of the
grain trade. There were private elevators, railway elevators, government
elevators and elevators controlled by
the harbor commissioners. He. 'had not
heard of much mal-practlce. but it was
desirable to give the government control and to establish a uniform system.
This announcement was made by
the minister of trade and commerce
during the discussion of estimates for
the construction and operation of terminal and interior elevators. The discussion occupied the whole afternoon
antl five and a half millions wets vot-
eel for the purpose. Mr. Foster stated that the interior elevators were to
be constructed at Saskatoon, Moose
Jaw and Calgary, a transfer elevator
in   British  Columbia and  an  elevator
'as

for a gram of $10,000 towards j aJ Hudson Bay.    The Saskatoon and
Moose Jaw elevators are to be ready
this season and that in Calgary for
the. crop of 1916. Tha other two will
be built later.
Hon. Frank Oliver criticized the government for not doing more in ihe d+-
rootion of taking over the* terminal
elevators. What had been done, he
said, is not sufficient to give Ike cov-
emraent control. Tnato mam a suspicion, he sa'rt, that ttie -iptaverrunert

The  trouble  came  to a  head   when
the crown pliie-e'tl on trial, for thp second time, James Balrd, who already
h;is been convicted in connection with
the number one riot, in Nanaimo.
Arthur Leighton, representing the
prisoner, held that the Nanaimo riots
were really part of one continued action and that, having been convicted In connection with one of these disturbances, Balrd could not, under
British  law, be  tried  again.

Leighton's  view,  but    took    another would reach a successful termination

K.C, who is appearing for the prosecution, that it was his opinion that one
of the many other men who have not
heen tried at all should be brought on
Instead of Balrd, who already is serving a term.
"I am looking for a legitimate ex

see* this young man go. 1 would be>
only too pleased if Mr. leighton
would succeed ill his application, for

Seeing what a determined stand his

crown hastened to suggest that the
Balrd trial be adjuorned and that the
court go ahead with the next on the

there was a delay.

Mr.   Northrup  mentioned    a    case

Mr,  Watters also expressed himself

SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 14, 1914.
CANNIBALS.
As British Columbians, we have been laboring under a
great delusion. We've been thinking all along that we
were civilized and we're not. During our wilder flights of
fancy we even imagined that we were almost human, but
we're not. We're a bunch of cannibals, so we are. In fact
our canibalistic tendencies are so well known abroad that
an English actor by the name of Irving, a man who has
nerve enough to appear on the stage in the wake of the outstanding record his father left behind him, hasn't enough
nerve to face a British Columbia audience in a play with a
Japanese setting, "with the present feeling in B. C. towards orientals as it. is." So worked up is this actor's
manager over the situation and so eager is he to get some
British Columbian dollars in spite of his fears that he has
written Sir Richard McBride to secure the advice of the
chief of the cannibal tribe on the question.
The folk behind the show intimate that they might
have taken a chance at being roasted alive or fricasseed
out her on the wild Pacific coast for the sake of the profits from the best theatre-going province in the federation
had it not been for the fact that the play which they present includes two Japanese merchants in its cast. Whence
they get their inside information on conditions here
doesn't appear, but evidently they believe that all you have
to do to turn a British Columbia audience into a flock of
raging, man-eating jabberwocks is to show it a Jap merchant or two. They may be right at that and we may not
have come into contact yet with the proper brand of Japanese businessman to produce the pictured cannibalistic I Jjjgfj,6'
effect, but there's nothing to prevent the Irving party
from trotting out his exhibits and giving us an opportunity to show what we can do.
There's one thing we must be thankful for; we've been
jerked, rudely perhaps, out of our false dream and shown
to ourselves as we really are. We're not fit to associate
with ourselves, let alone mix with such exponents of the
dramatic art as this Mister Irving. It's sad, but it must
be true, for was it not so printed in the Montreal Star?

can bo called upon as contributories.

are successful in their legal proceedings to escape liability as contribu
tories. Under no circumstances will
there ho any return for the shareholders, l>ut the call which it will be necessary to make, if they are held liable
by the court as contributories, will be
only about 15 per cent of their unpaid   subscriptions,
The Statement.
The statement filed shows that at
the time of liquidation the nominal assets were $430,000, the liabilities to
the public $117,SOU. and to shareholders $223,700, As liquidation has pro
ceeded some variations in this state
ment have occurred. The assets were
reduced by almost half owing to the
success of the Mutrie suit and the to-
turn of tht! Okanagan lands given by
the Mutries for stock. Tho cancellation of these shares also reduced the
liabilities to the shareholders. The
and Yates streets property,
the head office of the corporation was formerly situated, was lost,
it having boon sold under mechanics'
lien.
Thus ihe statement of affairs at
present s'hows nominal assets of $23.'!.
511(1, liabilities to the public $61,4nn,
and liabilities to shareholders, $181.-
600.
Of this $233,501) of nominal asseis
the liquidator states that only $1,600
i.s valuable, but since tho statement
was filed a court decision has awarded the liquidator $34.ooo worth of assets by way of settlement with the*
Title  Holding company.
Due  to   Depositors.
Of the liabilities to the public $25,- :
000 Is due depositors, but the new act
which   gives  depositors   a   preference
bad not come into effect at the time '
of  liquidation  ami  tiny   stand  on  an i
1 etiual   footing   with   other     creditors. I
I The payment of all ihese creditors de-
j penels on  whether or not the liquidator is able to have the shareholders
made liable to the company for the u-i- ;
paiei   balances  due on  their  snbscrip-
tions.    That matter is still before the I
court, and   II.  H.  Robertson, counsel
for  the  shareholders,  is  at  present
away, so it is improbable that it  will
be settled for the time being.
The point at issue In the shareholders' fight to escape liability is their
claim that the stock they hold was illegally issued. They argue that when
the company increased its capita! no
preference was attached to the new
Shares, but allege that they wore sold
as 10 per cent, preference shares. The
amount due In unpaid balances on
these shares is $475,000, of which the
liquidator would have to call on about
IB per cent.
Included in the liabilities to the public are those subscribers who sued for
cancellation of their subscriptions on
grounds of fraud, All but one* of these
���ictions were successful, and it is still
^^^^^^^^^^^ These actions
were all begun before liquidation, and
none* have been beg, n since, as fraud
cannot be set up after liquidation be-
gin.'.
l.ie amount which will be paid the
public in the event of tin* subscribers
| winning their fight to escape liability
i will depend upon the* realizations made
i tin the real estate taken over from I ie
Title Holding company, In  the Bettlt
j ment raitfled yesterday,   n la thought
that the mortgages and equltlies obtained aro worth $34,000, as intimated
in the terms of settlement, and  this
would yield almost. 50 per cent.

THOSE BURNABY SCHOOLS.
Kditor Daily  News:
Sir-As a member of the Burnaby
board of school trustees during the
years 1912-13, 1 wish to state that in
all my experience 1 have never heard
addresses from the public platform
displaying less knowledge of the mat
ter under discussion, unfairness and
egotism than was contained in the
speeches of Messrs. Burnes ami Herd,
also as regard to the ignorance on
the part of my young friend, Mr.
Campbell, So tar as Mr. Burnes is
concerned In- maele not one single
statement in keeping with the facts
of the case*, ilis statements with regard to epidemics are misrepresentations. As to the purchase of school
sites, his Ignorance with regard n
them is of the most dense type. Mis
fttatements with regard to tin* secretary seem to me to in* prompted by
some ulterior motive. His business
knowledge would seem to be of the
kindergarten order.
I find upon visiting a number of
the schools within the last week or
two,  that   Messrs.   Burnes,  Herd   and
Campbell,   while   undoubtedly   receiving  considerable  publicity,  are  doing
! absolutely  no school  work. .
A week ago yesterday, away over
; in North Burnaby, I found ex-Trustee
Coulter, accompanied by .Mrs. Coulter and the secretary, trudging all the
way to Harnet, the secretary with a
load of school supplies on tho end of
a stick over his shoulder. Two days
ago 1, myself, had some school supplies delivered at Duthie. Surely, if Un*
gentlemen mentioned had been suf
ficii ntly interested in the conduct
of the schools they would not he dependent upon outsiders for such fa
vors as these.
What is wanted on the part of
school trustees or candidates is less
talk,  more truth  antl  more work.

Con Joneg and Lacrosse.
The following Interview given out
by Con Jones while in Calgary this
week, regarding professional lacrosse
on the 1'oasi speaks for Itself:
"I am through with the professional
game at the coast until such time as
Westminster secures one man to back
the team. 1 will go back into the pro
fesslonal game If one man will put
up a bond that Westminster will finish the season. I^ast year everybody
was boss of the Westminster team
and the men who apparently had the
most to say bad the least money in
it. They blew up and I bad to suffer.
I am never going back into the professional game until 1 can feel sure that
a crowd can come to a game and not
be turned awav without seeing a game
ns happened lajt year."

Calgary. March 12.���That western
Canada must be colonized by foreign
ers, chiefly those from northern
Europe and the United States, antl
that the idea that this country could
be colonized by Great Britain alone
was one that could not bear consideration at all was the important announcement made by J. S. Dennis, assistant to the vice-president of the
C. P. R., during the course of an able
and instretlve address tiefore the Calgary   Ad.  club  recently.
"The idea that western Canada can
be colonized by Great Britain may as
well be wiped out of your minds once
and for all. Western Canada must
be colonized by foreigners, by men
who come to us from countries outside the British Isles, especially from
the countries of western Erope," said
M-.   Dennis.
Marvelous  Development.
With that knowledge of the early
history of this western land that few
men now living possess Mr. Dennis
spoke* of the gradual dfvelopmenl ami
expansion of this portion of the Dominion, a development which he char
notorized as marvellous.   Many of the
projects and proposals for tht* develop
ment of the west in the early years
were looked upon as Idle dreams but
they weee visions of optimistic minds
and  the dreams have come  true.
Mr. Dennis explained that much
harm had been done by illicit and bad
advertising and In consequence for
many years this country was looketl
upon as a barren desert where nothing
would grow and which was Inhabited
only by a few wandering coyote b. This
existed largely until the construction
of  the  Canadian   Pacific   railway,  the
Seattle, March 18.���Jewelry valued
at $75ii0 was stolen from August Tor-
ratti by burglars who gained access to
his room in the New Richmond hotel
with a pass key. Torratti, a travelling
salesman and jewelry jobber of Aurora. Minn., lost his entire stock. Captain of Detectives Charles Tennant
recovered a quantity of the loot last
night and two men were arrested in
Sedro-Woolley.
All the jewelry' was contained in a
suit case with special lock on it and I
was left in Torruttl's room  Tuesday,
instead of in  the hotel  vaults as re-
quested by the management.   Torratti |
left bis room Tuesday afternoon and
returned  about    11    o'clock Tuesday;
afternoon    and    returned    about    11
O'clock Tuesday night.    He discovered
the  loss of the jewelry case.
The police traced tbe jewelry to
Sedro-Woolley. When Marshal .1. L.I
Long of Sedro-Woolley saw Edwin
.iarvi antl ,le>lin .leiski ste-p from a train
and go to Sedro-Woolley's main hostelry yesterday he followed the-m and
later searched their room. The suit
case ihe'y carried was found to contain
a large amount of jewelry considerable
of which answered the tit srriptlon of
that stolen from Torratti. He arrest-
id both men on their return to the
hotel and took tbem to the* county jail
Mount  Vernon.    A further tlcscrip-
tt
tion was telephoned tln> Seattle department by Sheriff Ed, Wells of Skagit
county, last night, anel the identification of the jewelry was established.

Toronto, March  le?.���The expulsion

j spread  rapidly around  the university
yesterday afternoon.    Ever siuce the
i exposure of the dancing at  Annesley
hall, which lias not yet been officially
denied by the authorities of the Meth-
eidist  college,  regulations  have  been
j more strict at Queen's hull, and privileges   bave   been   curtailed.    Oue  or
the girl residents told the WorW that
the  girl  who had  been  expelled  had
i done   nothing   wrong,   and   that   the
j whole affair had been a mistake.
Asked   Her to  Leave.
The  caput  of  the    university  bail
sent  the' offending coed a letter re-
I questing  her  to  leave  the residence.
* and although an indiignaiit delegation
| interviewed   the   president,   tho  decision  was not altered.    The diociplin-
lary committee of the hall have taken
j the matter up,   but  so  ftir hare not
| been able to obtain any satisfaction.
Mrs. Campbell, the matron of Queen's
j hall, refused to discuss the action tak-

Through other sources it was learn-
j ed that besides the one girl being ex-
, pelled, two more were "gated," 'which
| means that they were denied all priv-

I visitors after 6:30 in the evening. Mrs.
Campbell has also issued the edict
