Romance is not usually to lie found hanging to a pile-
driver, nor is enthusiasm a sprout often discovered along
the peeled length of a pile, but the driver and the pile today
will play a bin part in marking in tangible form the beginning of Westminster's new day as a national port and
lhe only fresh water harbor on Canada's Pacific coast.
When the nine thousand pound hammer drops this afternoon on the initial unit of Royal City harbor improvement
work it will start a ripple in the water of the Fraser that,
-ever-widening, will reach out to the great ocean highways
anii guiJe the carriers of the deep to the cleansing stream
.and growing docks of the Young Liverpool of the Pacific.
Tha^e who participate today in the ceremony on the
waterfront will not live to see the finish of the great work;
l he end of that labor will come only when men cease to go
'down to the sea in ships, but as surely as the Fraser river
Bows into the ocean, so surely will many of them witness
the sight of the largest of deep water craft berthing at
New Westminster piers.
The making of a harbor and its growth are not matters of years; t^ney are the work of generations and, like
n relay race against time, each generation must do its
share "or the whole plan suffers. The men of today in
New Westsnirjster will bear the heaviest portion of responsibility, for on them depends the starting of the work,
the proper institution of an undertaking that will continue
to grow as long as the city lives.
Here's to Westminster harbor, to the men who are
working for it today and to those who are gone who worked for it in the jmstL

"When Sir Wilfrid was about to
-cart Hi" construction of the Qrand
Trunk I'acific and help that of the
Canadian Northern, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy said to him: -<'Why don't
you buy tbe Candian Pacific, turn it
into a government railway, and multiply its branches as the progress pf
settlement demands? I can make it
easy tor your government to purchase
it, and you will start with the tre

your control.' By now the Dominion
would probably have netted at least
two hundred millions of dollars In
profits from the Canadian I'ac'fic
with which It could have built new
lines throughout the country.
Unfortunately Canadian politicians,
when in orrice. like to embark on new
and costly enterprises of their own;
for reasons ihni need not.lie s'ated.
And so Sir Wilfrid began te build the
governmenl section of the Orand
Trunk I'ueific through tho wilderness
to Moncton, and assured tha Cand'an
taxpayer and the Englishman who
lent ua the money thai it would nol

many a long day.
Working day and night without
ceasing, one shirt breaking in to excel
the mon they superseded, these tunnel
drivers succeeded In boring through
810 feet In the ill days or May, for
the work did not stop on Sundays. The
mark they passed was set up last year
In the mines of the Arizona Copper
company, and stood at "99 feet of
heading S by 8 feet, In the same time.
But the new slab decorating the cn-
tranceto the Canadian Northern tunnel deals with a heading that Ib 8 by
12 feet. The record, therefore, should
ttand without question.
World's   Record.
The world's record for boring was
made  In  the  Alps,  something like  a
thousand feet being made.    But while i
this   was  accomplished   In   the  same
length of time, It can hardly be com-
lpared with  this of the  Mount Hoyal
tunnel, for the reason that the Swiss
drilling was done through soft rock.
The engineers Bay that for brilliancy
!of perrormance It does not come up to
the standard set by the Mount Royal
tunnel men.    The company, to recognize the achievement   will    present a
medal suitably engraved   to   the men
who actually took part in the record-
���*breaking performance.   They have al-
ri'.dy had their celebration.

Forty employees of the waterworks
repair department applied to the
board of control for an Increase of
25 cents a day In thetr wages. If the
request is graftted It will add $16,014
to the city's expenditure, and the

' London, July 2.--At the annual
j meeting of the Hudson Hay company
, Lord Stratchconn said that the prof-
' its from trade were the highest in the
company's history. The sum to the
credit of the land department also
constituted a record.
The conservative pilicy of the direc-
: tors in not forcing land sales at low
j prices in the past, and the energetic
measures taken to retain the good will
of the people of Cunada by affording
them   modern   shipping  facilities   are
being Justified.    Land was at present
Jthe  shareholders'   greatest  asset,  but
i it. was a diminishing one so the directors felt that a proportion of the land
sales should be treated as capital, and
invested in the trading side.     ^
Total sales showed a marked increase. Furs gathered slightly exceeded previous mi-mb-M-si,''-1. . [ ^ '

had Sever been the wife of other Indians, as testified to by various witnesses for tho defense.
Portuguese Joe married a woman of
the Azores a short time prior to his
death. She was made the chief beneficiary in the will.
The chief bequests, aside from those
to the wife, were gifts of $10,000 each
to a Catholic church in the Arore
islands, his childhood home, and to
two asylums there. Small sums were
given to other relatives, and $6,000
was bequeathed to the Spokane Y. M.
C. A.
Following his death the brothers
and slu'er contested the will, but
Judge Keenan held it valid. It was
alleged that the will was signed by
the pioneer when the wife plied him
wllh liquor and forced him to affix
his signature.
The verdict last night was given
following a week of court grind, which
has brought nearly 100 witnesses. Including many Indians, from all points
of  the northwest.
"Tli" estate is probably worth more
than $300,0011." said Attorney Cannon
last night. "The Indian women will

Regina. July 2 That the fire which
destroyed the grand stand at the Regina exhibition grounds was purely
accidental rumors which have been J
afloat for some time past lo the ef-
I feet that It was the work of incendiaries having proved groundless on
Investigation, is the statement made
by It. .1. McLean, provincial commissioner. The report, he said, originat-
led in Saskatoon
li appears that someone in Saska-
! toon claimed to have heard rumors
of a fire at the Itegina Exhibition
grounds two dajs before the fire actually took place. This tumor was
communicated to the local police, and
the fire commissioner a day or so after the fire, and a quiet Investigation
jwas Immediately b�� gun locally.
Meanwhile Mr McLenn went to
Saskatoon, but was unabli to discover anything to warrant the belief that
1 the fire was of incendiary origin.
"Tiie story appears to have been a
fabrication," he said, "and I think
there is no doubt that the real canst'
of the fire was that attributed in the
newspaper reports."
Mr. McLean declared that a fire
epidemic bus been sweeping ihe country distri-ts of Saskatchewan for
some time past, no less a sum than
I $100,000 having been Inst through;
the destruction ol farmhouses. The
leading Insurance officials attribute
ut least a portion of this loss to Incendiarism, he added. Farmers hard
pressed for money, the Insurance men

selves from 'le* sums collected on

Toronto, July 2.���To save the lives
of a few of the hundreds of babies who
die every summer In Toronto In in
Improper feeding and unfavorable
home surroundings la lhe object of the
BableS" Rest Station which the Down
Town Church-workers' association
has established In Memorial park, at
the foot of Portland street. Last year
the ^Iniverslty settlement began the
work, and the station which they kept
up undoubtedly saved the Uvea of
many babies who Would otherwise
have dropped off during the hot
months. This year the work Is being extended.
The station consists of a large tent,
12x24, with a double fly and no Bides,
In order that lt may be as cool and
airy ub possible. Inside are cribB for
20 babies. The cribs are nothing more
or les than lar-ji; clothes baskets,
each lltted with a tiny mattress and
bed clothes. The top of each basket Is
covered with netting to keep off the I
ease bearing illes. All of them
Stand oil a trellis several inches from
the ground, in order to allow the air to
circulate freely. Each crib Is marked with the name of Ihe baby who occupies it, and everything is, of course, I
kept spotlessly clean.   .
The babies are brought  in early In
the morning by their mothers and re- 1
main  at  the  station  all  day.    When j
they come In they are weighed on a
scale, and  their progress is carefully
recorded.    They  remain  in   thc  tent
till 5:."10 p. tn., wben their mothers call I
for them again.    A trained nurse is in!
charge of the babies all the time. They
;are  fed  regularly  with  certified   milk
from individual bottles. The Memorial!
park  is  very  quiet  during  theBe   not
days, und there is nearly always a cool
. breeze off the water, so that the babies
sleep most, of the day.

Capt. Hamilton Back from New Zealand   Makes   ?tatem-?nt
Montreal, July 2. Capt. (J. C. Hamilton of the liritish Qrenadler Ouards,
and Mrs. Hamilton, have reached
Montreal on their way home vin Vancouver from New ��. aland, wbere thc
captain has been assisting Major A.
G, Qodley, commanding the New Zealand defensive forces for three years.
The travellers arc staying at the RltZ-
Carlton  hotel.
"As Is knowni" said Captain Hamilton, "we have compulsory service oul
there, and It Is a very great success.
There are. of course, some people
who do not like It, some five per cent,
of the population who speak against
militarism; but they are dwindling in
numbers, and as oftrr happens they
make far more noise than is warrant-
ted either by their numbers cr importance. 1 noticed an article In a Montreal paper from Chrlstchurch, New
Zealand the statements In which were
absolutely contrary to the facts. Before I left I had three thousand men
of my brigade in camp, an attendance
of 94 per cent., and the camp went
off splendidly.
"A man in New Zealand has to do
thirty drills of one and one half hours
each, 12 half day parades and S days
In camp, and tlie scheme lias been a
most marvellous Buccess all round. I
thing the question of compulsory sfr-
vice is of very great Importance, nnd
tho sooner Canada realizes her re-
spons bilily In the matter the better
It will be for everybodv. Vustralla
and New Zealand, 12,000 miles away,
have it. and I canno' understand whv
it haa not been adopted here. I am
quite in sympathy with Lord Roberts
In his campaign! My views, in a
phrase are one empire, one navy, one
army, run on imperial lines. Tho
Compulsory system would do Ihe country all the good in the world.
"I know perfectly well that yon
oannot have a voluntary system or
whatever you like to call It, without
the men. Vou may have officers and
bands, hut you must have thu men,
a proper permanent s'aff."

Toronto. July 2. Tbe popularity of
the transatlantic trip as a holiday
never was so pronounced h* it is this
summer, and with this popularity is
coupled the St Lawrence route. People from New York city Itself, With the
iiti"st fleet of flrst-Class ocean vessels
In the world ready waiting at their
docks, are writing up here to the
agenl:; nf the Canadian lines looking

cummer trip to Europe, sailing by
Montreal by the liners which take In
the noble St. Lawrence river and gull
end the .-llriiils of Belle Isle, appeals
to Americans who have sailed from
New York to Dostou as something different and delightful
Anolher feature  which    is    making
the Canadian route popular is the facl
that some of tbe lines, notably the
Canadiiin-Ciinnril, are featuring one-
cabin ships. People of this continent
may be poor, but tbey are opi to be
democratic, and therefore proud, for,
strange tn say, the most democratic
person is the one who objects to traveling second class. First-class or
nothing for him, or as Ib most likely
In  cases of Ihls kind    for lier.
These  new  one-class    cabin    sliltif
:baye no first  or second  class,    They
have "one" class. Tbe rates ere about
the same as tbe old Bedond class, but
the accommodation  Is  belter -equal
to the Old first Class, in fact, exeept upon Ibe ships de luxe. And the
invldliis distinctions of class are thus
avoided. These ships are becnmlna
Immensely popular, being booked full
up away in advance f -r every summer Balling, For people of moderate means tbey are Ideal.
"We have bookings now for next
year," said Mr, Boland, general On
I irlo and New V Tk slat" agenl
"The one-class ships nre lbe most
popular ships of all today. People don't
like to be distinguished hh 'fimi' or
'second' class according to the money
they care to spend. Nowadays, a
person of moderate means can get
first-class accommodation on a one-
class ship on  tbe ('.-111111111111 route  for
iless than J10I1 round trip. This year
Is the biggest vear for ocean travel

Only one-eleventh of the total quantity of honey consumed ln British Columbia last year was produced In the
province, according to figures compiled by the department of agriculture. It Is estimated that 566,163 lbs.
of honey, valued at $1111,457, were produced In. or imported into, liritish Co-
'urnhia during 1 filli. Of that amount I
the province produced only 60,274 IbB.,
value $12,682; other provinces in Canada supplied 326,164 lbs., value $81,-
291; countries outside Canada supplied 190,726 lbs., value $25,604.
While IlritiBh Columbia as a whole
may not be an ideal country for honey |
production, there can be no question
but  that  the  province  Ib  capable  of
producing a far greater proportion of;
the honey consumed than was the case
last year.   To a very large extent the |
honey yield of this province depends!
upon   the   methods   adopted   by   beekeepers aB a body.    The department j
nf agriculture  is doing its  utmost  to
educate   ranchers   In   the   elementary
principles   of  bee-keeping.
Tlle Okanagan valley is probably
the best district for bee-keeping ,but
it is not the only district where honey
may be gathered In large quantities
during a good season.
While clover, which is possibly the
chli f source of honey. aboimdB on
every hand, there are many other
nlants from which honey can he gathered. Among the sources of honey
may be mentioned the mow-berry
bush, firewood, fruit blossoms, alfalfa, clover, raspberry and any other
The, cool summer evenings experienced have a tendency to retard the
secretion if nectar In flowers; nevertheless good honey crops may be secured by bee-keepers who properly
understand the requirements of their
bees and provide them with old combs
or "foundation" for new combs and
ither facilities for storing honey.
Modern  Methods.
F. Dundas Todd, one of the Inspectors ln the service of the department
of nericulture, in a recent bulletin
on "Agriculture in British Columbia,"
mentions an apiary which produced
1,100 pounds of fine clover honey
from seven colonies of bees, while
seventy-eight other colonies in the
lame neighborhood produced a total
crop of only 93 pounds. The cause of
the difference is readily understood
by an expert bee-keeper. In one caBe
the beeB were assisted In every possible way; in the other cases they
were more or lesB left to their own device;;.
Mr. Todd tells how he induced eight
bee-keepers to adopt modern methods
nf  bee-keeping.  *ith  the  result  that
i the value of their honey crop amount-
I ed to $720 Instead of no crop at all. as
In   previous  years.     What   Mr.   Todd
, ruccceded in doing In that  particular
locality may bo done In practically all
I parts of the province, with the result
that In a very few- years British Co-
jlumhia. though  not  fo favorably situated   as   California   for   b-=e-keeping
should  be able  to  supply  the greater
portion of its own demand for honey
and other product? of the bees.
Tbe sources of honey are plentiful
'n ir-'rt parts of the province, and
the secret of ruccess in honey production lies in supplying the bees with
proper facilities for storing it while
the honey flow- Is flourlEhlng and the
weather Is favorable.

oughtless Advertising
Lost Advertising
(By John C. Freund.) ���
Neither the daily papers nor the trade papers'receive the
amount of advertising to which they are entitled by reason of
their tested usefulness.
The daily papers and the country weeklies are the natural
mediums for the retailer, and in some cases the manufacturer,
just as the trade papers are the natural mediums for the manufacturer and the jobber.
With some few exceptions in the shape of weeklies and
monthlies of national influence and circulation, nearly all other
advertising mediums belong in the parasite class, and while they
consume vast sums give and can give no adequate return.
The competition which a daily paper has to meet is not, as
so many of them appear to think, that of other daily papers, but
that a host of minor mediums, such as trashy magazines, weeklies,
theatre programs advertising schemes of all kinds, .which are
useless so far as results adequate to teh expenditure involved are
It is the persistent ignoring or ingorance of the above facts
which is responsible for much of the money which is wasted by
advertisers, and thus many are induced to believe that advertising is of doubtful value and that its results can never be definitely traced.
The problem how best to secu/e publicity has as yet received
little economic and certainly less scientific treatment.
Many houses hand over their advertising to agents, some of
whom are notably reliable and capable, but most of whom leave
their business to poorly paid and inexperienced clerks and are
principally interested in those mediums from which they can secure the largest commissions.
When advertisers, especially those who expend considerable
sums, organize a publicity department of their own as being as
vital to their success as their buying, manufacturing or selling
departments; when they back every hundred dollars spent for
advertising with at least ten to fifteen dollars spent for brains and
experience organized to discover how best to do their advertising,
the results will be enormously increased.
That the problem of publicity includes much more than advertising in reputable standard publications should be self-evident
Every letterhead, every billhead, every envelope, check, is a medium of publicity just as well assorted and arranged stock, an attractive store window, comfortable but business-like offices, clean,
straightforward methods, prompt service, reliable goods, willingness to remedy errors or shortcomings are mediums that make
for publicity.
For the present, however, let us limit the enquiry to the opportunities presented by publications.
It seems scarcely conceivable that the reason given by many
concerns, even of standing, why they do not expend more money
in advertising in the daily and trade papers is that "it costs too
As if there is such a thing as "expense" if that expense brings
in a profit.
The only limits to the appropriation for advertising should be
the possible market and the manufacturer's or dealer's ability to
meet the demand with his capital, his credit and his organization.
When we see the public utility corporations that supply us
with telephones, with electricity, with gas; when we see railroad, telegraph and cable companies advertising largely because
they have found it pays, should it not be a lesson to the manufacturer and dealer?
Unfortunately the majority of advertisers do not know how
to advertise even when they have selected the best mediums.
The poor results that follow are blamed upon the mediums instead
of being charged to the incapacity of the person wTho prepared
the advertising.
Suppose a business man were told that thousands of possible
good customers would be assembled in a hall and that he, together with his competitors, would be allowed just two minutes
to make his appeal to them, would he not carefully consider and
perpare what to say in those two minutes?
If even tho representatives of standard publications have to
sweat blood to get business it ia surely somewhat due to the fact
that the average advertiser when he has selected his mediums
and prepared his copy does not give sufficient space so as to attract
Let a single instance suffice: A singing teacher of high
standing prepared an announcement of a slimmer school which
he inserted in "Musical America," a high-d#*s publication with
a large and influential circulation.
He got no replies.
Then the editor and the advertising manager took the matter
in hand as a test. They used exactly the same copy but displayed
its salient points in four times the original space, while the handsome cuts of the school in which the original card had been reduced to thumbnail size, were enlarged three times.
Within two weeks the advertiser had 127 replies from all
parts of the country, secured all the pupils his school could
accommodate and had to refuse a number.
"It pays to advertise!" especially when the advertiser has
something of value to dispose of, chooses his mediums with care,
preferring the daily and trade papers to all other mediums, keeps
posted as to which publications are rising in character and circulation and which are declining, tells his story in a simple, concise and convincing way, takes enough space to tell it, keeps at it
persistently, creates an efficient organization to handle his advertising, rejects all mediums whose main appeal is on the score of
cheapness and, finally, is willing to-edf-operate with the publisher
to secure the best results. *"      PAOfc EIOI'.T
