claimed that the accused had not been j

The Business World is flat to some men

apathy have s:t them confines which they may not pass.
For instance, they I elieve 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 sawed-off edges 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
ns 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 in Spring and Fall. Granted that they are not buying
skates nnd snow shovels in August, yet they are buying staple articles.
Furthermore, they huve nu eye on luxuries aud comforts they are
counting upon purchasinj; in the Fall.

Taxes are a superior lien upon all mortgaged property. Heal
estate may be sold for taxes,
leaving the careless holder of a
bond and mortgage with no security. Insurance may be allowed to lapse; then, should a
fire occur the mortgage holder
hus only the bare ground security. Methodical attention
absolutely averts these dangers.
The maker of the mortgage
may default In his interest payments. Here again experience,

volver. It makes us think of the ttime | rights.
The effect of the resignation was
soon apparent when the question of |
granting immunity to the detective
who worked up the case was brought
up in committee. Mr. Geoffreyon,
counsel for Mr. Mousseau, argued that,
since the latter was now a private citizen he was entitled to every right as
such and he could not see why these
witnesses could be granted any greater protection tiian the law provided.
The law allowed protection against
civil arrest, but the province could not
deal with criminal arrest, That was
a matter for British constitutional law
Oue would think a change in the
line-up of the local Y. M. C. A. basketball team is in order following two
hpavy defeats. Why not place the
matter ln the hands of the president
and secretary of the local branch of
the 11. C, A. A. U.
placed before the bouse by the speaker in the afternoon sitting, Mr. La
vergne moved that the editors be
lummondd to appear again before Unbar of the assembly tomorrow afternoon and be further questioned as to
the names of members of the legislative council under suspicion and as yet
unnamed. He said that there were
still two blanks left to be filled in
and declared that when tho editors
left the lower house it bad been understood that the council would ask
an explicit question in ordee to com*
pel disclosure of the names. As the
council had not seen fit to ask such i
a question, lie considered it was only
the duty of the lower house to do so..
Sir Dormer Qouin, who spoke with
considerable erhotlon, objected on the
ground that the editors had refused
to take the responsibility of making
any direct charges against other members of the council but Messrs. Berard
and Bergevln.
"And," proceeded Sir Lorrfier, "here
is  another consideration.    The  mere
fact of  publisbi��g names  may cause,
irreparable wrong to those named and i
the proprietors of the Mail would not!
be able to sell enough papers to the
end of their lives to repair the harm ,
they would have caused."
Sir 1-ormer then proposed the fol-!
lowing amendment: "That this house j
considers Instruction necessary to|
summon Messrs. Nichols and MacNab
before it again and leaves whatever;
further action may seem necessary
to tiie upper house." I
Would  Leave Suspicion.
Mr. Lavergne protested that to leave
tiie members unnamed was to leave
the entire upper chamber under sus-]
picion and questioned whether the
members of the council had the right
to refuse to accept the risk of ex- j
poemre and allow suspicion to attach
to them.
Continuing he declared that if he
bad been in the place of the editorB
when ihey were before the bar of the
upper home he would have considered that some of the questions put
amounted to an attempt to trap them.
"Here," said the young Nationalist, in
referring to the council, "is an irresponsible body with inquisitorial powers Which desires to force these men
to say either 'Ves' and incriminate
them, or say 'No' and exculpate them.
But they had to deal with two Scotch- I
men, who were not to be intimidated |
with a body which represents nothing
and which if it continues to exist, will I
represent only suspicions."

A Prominent Man
made the following remark a few days ago: "1 have made my will
nnd have appointed my wife to act as the executor of my estate," no
doubt without realizing the absolute unfairness of such an arrangement.
If it requires all cf a man's experience, knowledge and business
ability to acquire and keep sufficient assets to provide for his dependants after his deah, then how unfair it is for a man at the time
of liis death to shift the respon sibility of the management of his affairs to his wife's shoulders. She Is not fitted nor trained for such
matters and through her inexperience may easily lose that provision
you have so carefully and often painfully gathered 'together to
protect her and your children.
Westminster Trust, Limited was formed principally for the purpose of acting as executors of estates and brings to their management experience, knowledge, business ability and a financial responsibility that cannot be secured elsewhere and all at no greater cost
than that paid to an individual   executor.

Montreal, Jan 29.���The India-rubber
man!       ���
That was the name given to him by
the  detectives  at  headquarters  this
morning.    Several   names   were  Bug-
! gested, such as "the man of mystery,"
j "the homeles one," but none of these
, were thought to fit.   Finally'the india-
rubber man was hit upon.
This  mysterious  man  ts  the  latest
[ sensation   at  headquarters.     He   was
: first discovered at 9:30 last night by
Constable   Larocho,   of   No.   ti   police
1 station, i fanding  up against a  telegraph post on St. James street, near
| Windsor,  just opposite the  Bonaven-
j ture station.    He    was    well enough
i dressed, but his smile -was strange and
glassy, and  the constable, not  liking
the looks of the man. ordered him to
walk on.
When the constable passed the Bame
spot again, the man he had ordered
to move on was standing in exactly
the same spot, supporting the same
telegraph pule, and with the same
glassy smile on his face, it (the
smile) appeared to the constable to
have frozen In, so set it was.
Again the officer or the law gave
; his order, but still the   man refused
apparently to move.   Tlie^n Constable'
Laroohe, plucking up   courage,    ap
' .preached the man in a belligerent at*
j tltude.   The silent one still smiled, bul
; said nothing, and made no move.
Thereupon Constable Larbche took
1 the man by tho arm and dragged him
! to the police station.    He would have
; walked  the stranger, but the  hitter's
legs, apparontly, Bcemed of little use,
giving way constantly beneath him.
Captain Dandaineault, at No. ti sta
! tion. knows about as many ways to
! make a man talk as any one upon
earth, and he had a try at the "sileni
guy," trying every possible method.
His nerves shattered by the glassy
smile that his victim bestowed upon
him, the captain finally gave up the
task In despair and sent his prisoner
I down to tho central station for further investigation. At the Central st.i*
| tion he was stowed in a cell during
the night. The guard who kept watch
declared that the mem did not close
his eyes for a moment, but :*at and
smiled on.
This morning the reporters tried to
make tbe man talk. His light hair is
neatly parted. His clothes are apparently gocd, but rather light for
winter wear, and in one of the pockets
was found a letter without a name,
and a Jewish newspaper.
One curious tiling about the man is
that if a limb is moved it remains In
just the same position as left by the
police. If a constable raises his arm
the man keeps it In a raised position,
and If a constable raises a leg he
keeps it raised In the air. Apparently he has lost till voluntary control
of his muschtfs. He has not spoken '
since he was taken in charge.
Dr. Plcotte, the police doctor, dc-1
clares his belief that the man is suf- i
fering from some form of epileptic
fit, although he cannot definitely certify this t*> be the case. The detectives have a theory tiie* the fellow
was brought Into the city on a train
and left on tho street. There are abt
solutely  no signs  of violence.
ceptlon Saturday last, that tha students bad become crazed with the new
dances. "So long as there is moderation in Ihe action of the students,
there will never b1 any objection
from those in authority," said the
Jinsident, "but the disgraceful extra
vagance of the new* dances calls for
censure. I have no doubt that dure
are some of the new steps to which
no objection can be taken, but these
seem to be a minority. Th,* students
seem intoxicated with dancing and
with dancing the new dances. Tiie
"Coining Events" column of the college paper, The Varsity, is one long
list of such entertainments. One
would tb'nk that many students do
seem d> ^.'mined to go as far as tiiey
can until someone orders them to
stop--this a very childish attitude,
You can quote me as being personally
very much opposed to the new
dances as they an* til present prad
lici *.l around the university."
The question has risen specifically
in Ihe case of the Chippewa Indians of
the White Earth reservation In Minnesota, where, under the law, "mixed
bloods" are permitted
allotted lands at once.

.Montreal,    Jan.      29.���The      Birch-
enough cheque, alleged to have been
raised from thi to $54,000, is missing.
: Clerks of the  lower court and court

today had found no trace of it.
Fortunately, to is not believed that
��� this loss will affect the course of jus-
��� tice, however. The cheque itself, as
, primary evidence, is, of course, a de-
: sirable  piece of evidence, but  when
��� first-hand evidence is not available,
' secondary evidence  is admitted.
Tli is secondary evidence is at hand,
i as the cheque was  photographed  the
day  A,  J.  Hirchenough  was arrested.
Judge  Leet,    who    presided     when
Hirchenough was committed  for trial,

"Perfectly good evidence," he replied.
The story, in brief, of the cheque's
disappearance is as follows:
During   the   etiquette   December   13,
j the cheque was filed as evidence. The
following then handled It more or less

Ish by my hand." or. "He will finish

Mrs. Thibault t ok the phrase as
implying a personal threat, and Miss

Special Feature
dinnei here this week. Mi. Qoodeve
declared it impossible for Canada tj
assimilate the yellow people and urged the people of tbe east to deal witii
this problem In a broad national way.
"The Resources and Possisbilitles of
Uritish Columbia," was Mr. Qoodeve's
subject, and It was a very glowing picture of the west that he painted. "An
entirely wrong idea prevails in the
| cast," he said, "regarding present conditions in the west. J'eople appear
to think that the bottom has dropped
out of things and that the west is no
longe. any good.
Brltirh Columbia Prosperous.
"Such is not the caBe. In some regards Hrltish Columbia was never bo
prosperous as it Ib today. It Is employing more men suecesfully In mining
than il has ever done. The whole of
t',.o Kootenay district Is absolutely
booming. But we are Buffering and
there is a shortage,
"We  have been  sailing on the full
Salmon  Inductry.
"People have said that our salmon
fishing is be'ng destroyed. There is
a great difference of opinion about
thut, and I am glad to be able to say-
that the government h^a taken lit up.
I have talked with some of the can-
ners out there and they tell me that
there Is what Is known as the four-
year run.
"They explain that by saying that
tbe salmon come up the Fraser river
to fresh water and late in the autumn
and remain there all winter. Then
ln the spring they go out to tha sea
and they do net come back until four
years latter. That is what is known as
the year of the big run. With others
of the fish the life seems to be two
and not four years. One serious difficulty we have to contend with is that
these waters are International and
that the fish are intercepted by Americans, wbo do a lot of trapping, which
is  forbidden  in Canada.
"Some time ago an agreement was
reached between the two countries,
and while 1 do not wish to make any
accusations, against our neighbors.
to tho south, I must Bay that agree
ment has not been carried out The
government,  however,  hi's  now   be-
e of prosperity, and have forgot'en !come inter sted in the matter and Wi

master mariners have passed safely
through the harbor. But as the forces
of nature draw back the tide so shall
the province of British Columbia draw
back tbe tide until every sail is full
Mr. Qoodeve then briefly sketched
the history cf Canada from tbe 14th
to the 15th century and more particularly the b'story of British Columbia.
Early in hia address be referred to
Hamilton as the "Pittsburg of Canada." and said that the fact had long
heen recognized that the city whose
manufactures were based on steel
must eventually be pre-eminent.
Western Coal Fields.
Referring to the coal fields of Brit-
H'h Columbia, he said tha.t Sir Henry
Peel had declared them to be the largest In Canada. "They are the oniy
coal fields on the west coast," he
paid "between AlaBka and Mexico.
With their known area they could
supply the whole world with coal and
at the end of 15,000 years not be exhausted,"
Mr. Qoodeve 'hen referred to the
great water power to be had from
British Columbia's hills, and said that
while their use was only ln Its infancy, people were already commencing to use this power for smellers, etc.
"It Is said that British Columbia has
the largest compact, area of merchantable timber in the world," he Baid.
"There are no lesB than 182,000,000
acres of forest land and if we say that
20 per cent of this is merchantable,
that would be a fair average."
Referring to the fisheries of his na*
are in hopes now that this great in
dUBtry Will be saved to us.
"Then we have halibut, siiell fish of
various kinds and this hardly touches
Ihe surface of the fishing industry on
the Pacific coaEt. We sold over a
million dollars' worth of furs last
year. And if you get time for a hunting trip, let me tell you that British
Columbia is the paradise of sport.
"We bave the finest fly trout fishing
in the world and all the fur-bearing
animals are in abundance. Fortunately we have good game laws and we
have set aside national reserves so
that there is no danger of these animals becoming extinct. Instead they
are becoming of inestimable value.
Agricultural   Lands.
"British Columbia has been called
a 'sea of mountains.' I wonder If the
people who have thus described it
know that we have ten times as much
agricultural land as Japan with its 4;.
millions of people, and five times as
much as Sweden? Land which a few-
years ago was considered useless is
now being sold for $500 an acre. It is
especially good fruit land. Apples, apricots, peaches and all the smaller
fruits grow plentifully there.
"There are over 100,000 acres under fruit cultivation in British Columbia today. These are only some of
the resources, however. In the fight
for riches we have not forgotten the
higher side of things. Schools and
colleges are going up very rapidly.
Wherever there are 20 children between the ages of 8 and 16 years a
school is started. The value of our

A lawyer iu Portland, Ore., was as-
llgUed to defend a Chinaman accused
of murder, lie bad a talk with th��
official Interpreter, wbo In turn hud
talked with the man In Jail, and that

There wns another long conversation
between tbe Interpreter and the prison*

Hamilton. Jan. 29.- Manuel Oorland
.:; years of ajee, a resident of Bronte,
is hovering between life and death at
the city hospital, the victim Of a peculiar accident which occurred whit' he
was rabbit shooting near liis home.
norland was hunting for game when
!viis shoe lac became untied. Leaning
his gun against a tree he bent over to
tie the lace\ When he reached for the
gun again he grasped It by the muzzle, and In some unaccountable manner it was discharged, and the heavy-
load of buckshot embedded itself In
his right shoulder. Dorland was
placed on a radial car and brought to
Hamilton. The* nmbulance was called,
and he was removed to tbe city hospital. Dorland was suffering from internal hemorrhages as a result of the
wound, and Dr. McGregor operated in
an attempt to stop these hemorrhages.
No attempt was made to probe for
the shot, and norland's condition is
so critical that another operation was
not performed. Slight hope, is held
out for his recovery.
