Sacramento,;Cal., March 16���With
the food supply diminishing daily, a
north wind making life unpleasant on
the Yolo sand levees and desertions
thinning the ranks, the "unemployed
army" which reached Sacramento two
weeks ago 1500 strong with the avowed purpose of marching to Washington, D.C., Is rapidly disintegrating. A
few of the leaders are striving to imbue the do or die spirit into the estimated 350 men that remain, but Yolo
and Sacramento officials assert the
end of the army is in sight.
The Sacramento militia companies
who have been guarding the state arsenal here since the army arrived
were dismissed from further service
today by Adjutant General  Forbes.
The promise of several of the more
prominent members of the "army" to
work for dispersal of the forces remaining by Wednesday was the only

as to what time the plans for the

A Visiting Council.
The weekly attendance at the regular meeting of the Burnaby council
was augumented last night by the appearance of Reeve L. E. Marmont and
Councillors Whiting, Robertson and
Baker, of Coquitlam municipality. All
four gentlemen gave their views on
the situation, but were unanimous in
stating that a strong feeling existed
among the residents on the north side
of the ('.. N. It. tracks for electric
transportation. Councillor Whiting
came through with the suggestion
that the provincial members for the
Dewdney, New Westminster and Rich.
mond ridings be approached to ill*:-!
government aid to the Brunette bridge
project. Engineer Macpherson stated
that, with the e*e*lrtlofi OT boring*
in the river bed, all plans were in
shape for the bridge building, although the type of bridge and cost of
same would have to be required from
contracting firms.

Yesterday when Robert Rafter
pleaded guilty in the special assize
court to the charge of having taken
part in an unlawful assembly at
Nanaimo last summer and counsel for

of the protracted special assize, which
for nearly six months has been dealing with the Vancouver Island strike
cases, was in sight.
As was exclusively reported In The
News last week, negotiations to the
end of closing the assizes had been
in progress for several days with
every chance of reaching a successful
conclusion and that object will in all
likelihood be attained this morning

Prosecute Faith Healers.
��� Berlin, March 16--According to the
National Zeltung, the crown prosecutor has begun the prosecution of several faith healers in connection with
the death recently of two prominent
actresses, Frau Butze and Frau Fer-
rier of the Royal theatre. The two
women suffered from chronic diseases
and lt Is alleged were induced to dismiss their attending physicians and
submit to the faith cure with fatal results. The deaths attracted general
attention owing to the prominence of
the actresses.

the councillor from the north, "is
never to do anything until they absolutely have to. The company has
be* n ortiered to file plans for the
high level bridge with the engineer of
the commission, but have as yet made
no move."
Will Westminster Aid ?
As to the question of the cost of
the* Brunette river bridge, Reeve
Fraser thought that New Westminster
being within ten feet of the proposed
Improvements would benefit by increased traffic into the city and
should contribute financially together
with Burnaby and Coquitlam. This
will lie discussed at. a meeting to be
held with the New Westminster city
council in the near future.
Selling More Water.
Btfore the visiting delegation were
allowed  to go, Reeve Fraser  informed them that Burnaby has a considerable surplus of Seymour creek water
and  would be quite willing, probably
elated, to   dispose   of   a   reasonable
quantity   to   Coquitlam.    Reeve   Marmont tell  in  with  the  Idea  and the
Burnaby engineer will assist  Coquitlam by finding out the levels in order
to determine whether the property in
the  vicinity of the golf links is not
too high for the Burnaby pressure.

Nothing Doing Yesterday.
Yesterday there was very little doing in court. There was no session
in the morning and in the afternoon
Rafter pleaded guilty and was remanded for sentence, in the meantime being allowed out on bail. Then
court was adjourned till today at 1:30
The sudden developments and the
general belief that the special assize
had but a few more days to live threw
one little plan out of gear, that of
the petition which was circulated
among the jurymen, asking the. presiding judge to use all his powers to
bring the protracted session to as
speedy a close as possible. While it
is not likely that this petition will be
formally presented now, it is probable
that some reference will be made to
it today, either by the presiding judge
or by tiie Jurymen* themselves.
\A last week's Issue of the B. C. Gazette. This is the name that is marked
on the stakes through Burnaby and
New Westminster and it is believed
that the concern is none other than a
subsidiary company of the Canadian
Northern railway, backed by the Mackenzie and  Mann interests.

peculiar demand of their own constituents, refuse to recognize that a policy of give and take is necessary if the empire is to retain the loyalty of its many component parts."
Leaving for a moment the imperial aspect of the case,
the eastern editor has made one statement entirely unfounded on fact and which, if taken as an indication of
the value of the remainder of his expressed opinions, reduces the weight and worth of his article to the vanishing
point.   Referring to the East Indians who are coming to
British Columbia, he says: "Their moral standards are
similar to our own."   Out here in the west we are not in
a position to pass on the moral standards of the editor
of The Weekly Witness and his friends, but it i.s to be
hoped in the interests of that respectable and respected
publication that they afe a few notches above those of
the Hindus, whose cause he appears so eager to champion.
The editor in question may not know it, but it is a fact
that the greatest objection to the Hindu is his complete
failure to recognize any kind of moral standard and the
experience of British Columbians with him has led to
the conclusion that in mind and l)ody he is filthy.
The eastern newspaperman talks of the Sikhs who are
coming to our shores and he tells us what fine specimens
of humanity they are. Held down under stiff control in
a native regiment in India the Sikh may be all right, but
released from all restraint, as he lives and moves and has
his being in this province, he is an altogether different
proposition. But there are more than Sikhs, unfortunately, coming to B.C. What of the Bengalis and the Jats
and the numerous other peoples sending out emigrants
from India to Western Canada? The editor of The Witness says that the Sikh is not an agitator, but he forgets
that the Bengali, cowardly to the core and priding himself on his ability to write B.A. after his name, is the
worst agitator in the British empire and that the Jat
comes of a race of confirmed opium eaters. Is the editor
of The Weekly Witness willing to admit that his moral\w
standards are the same as those of these men?
Further, does the editor of The Weekly Witness fur-
get in his imperial zeal that it is very little more than a
half century since the fathers of these men wrote Cavvn-
pore, Calcutta, Lucknow, Delhi and other names on Indian
history in letters of blood that never will be effaced and
that today the brothers and cousins of these men, these
men who are not agitators, are regarded with such suspicion by the Indian council that the viceroy cannot attend
a polo match without the railway being policed every four
feet for a hundred miles and five lines of troops drawn up
in the streets, three 01 them facing outwards? Does all
this contamination pass from them when they enter the
gates of Canada?
His friend, the writer in the Review of Reviews,
speaks of a policy of "give and take, necessary if the empire is to retain the loyalty of its component parts." The
day that imperial policy demands that Canadians welcome
Hindus will place a heavy strain on imperial loyalty in at

Colonel Hall Resigns
Strike Zone Command
Has Difficulty Seeing Eye-to-Eye with
Other Authorities and Quits
His Post.
-Nanaimo, March 16. ���Colonel Hall,
t*op-,mandinK officer of the 88Ui regiment of this city, who took the field
last August ag chief of the forces gent
to the strike zone of Vancouver Inland, has returned to Victoria after
having resigned. Major Harris, of Victoria, is now in command of the volunteer militiamen in Nanaimo and
Ladysmith. Colonel Hall has not only
left the field bul hag resigned from
the Canadian militia. The story of
bla break with the authorities is of
intense interest. Kor months it has
lichen an open secret that there was
much friction between himself and
the attorney general's department;
but tne news that he had quit not
only hig command but had regained
Ills commission as a colonel was so
us'onishiiiB that it was at first received with much credulity. There Ib
DO question, however, about the facts
which have oeen abundantly confirm-
ed from several sources, both official
und unofficial.
Resignation Accepted.

the lack of interest which the authori-
tlei manifested in bis suggestions,
Be t,t a telegram to Colonel Ine Hon.
Sum  Hughes,  minister of Militia    at
���Oitawa, asking for leave to go to Ot-
I tawa to explain personally the seriousness of the situation ub he saw it
in Nanaimo and intimating that unless he could do that be that lie felt
inclined to resign. The reply came
on Kriday from Colonel Hughes:
"Leave refused; resignation accepted," or words to that exact effect.
There was nothing left for Colonel
Hall to do but turn over the command.
The outstanding cause of Colonel
Hall's disagreement with officials at
Victoria and Ottawa Is the question
of remuneration for militiamen in the
field. The colonel had tried in vain
to secure a special grant from the
provincial government of $1.50 per
day for each man, so that with what
each citizen soldier received from
the militia department for service, he
would altogether get an amount
equal to the salary of an ordinary provincial constable. This was quite
freely talked of just before Christmas,
but Colonel Hall was unable to get
the covernnient at Victoria to come
forward witli tbe money. Colonel Hall
i* said to have addressed several letters on the subject to Premier
McBride, who finally decllnf*! to do
anything, but passed the colonel on
to Ottawa. Colonel Hall met with no
better luck at the federal capital. His
representations culminated in the
telegram of last Thursday.

Victorias Defeat Quebec Team in First
Game for Allen Cup���
Score 6-4.
Reginu, March 16 ��� Worn down by
the staying power of the Regina Victorias and OUtgamed in the second
half, the (irandmere hockey team,
challengers for th<�� Allan cup on the
strennth of winning the championship
of Eastern Canada went down to decisive defeat tonight by the scorn of
fi to 4. Tile half time score was 3 to
l in favor of Orandmere, The score
is u fair indication of the play throughout.
Where* the Victorias had it ou the
challenging team was chiefly In staying power, sameness and speed.
The game se'uds the Victorias into
the second battle of the series of two
games with a lead eif two points, and
the> Orandmere team must win em
Wednesday night by three goals to
take the Allan cup back e*ast. not
merely to tie-ing with them, They
stand small chance' of doing that, on
the form displayed tonight, for under
any ic- conditions the Victorias
should be abb* io bold their lead and
iii fact increase it.

Ous Hill's new "Mutt and Jeff" production called "In Panama" is blaz
ing a trail of merriment tiiat has never
biien equalled by a play of any sort
or character. There seems to be no
limit to the possibilities of laugh producing material to be culled from the
famous Fisher cartoons which are now
running In more than a thousand daily
and Sunday newspapers throughout
Canada antl the United States. This
season's offering is entirely new with
ihe exception of the two inimitable
droll characters "A. Mutt" and his
little pal, "Mr. Othello Montgomery
Jeffries." As is natural to suppose,
fun is the paramount object of the
play, and in that respect as well as
from the standpoint of a musical pro-
duction, "Mutt ami Jeff in Panama"
has no eeiual in the annals of musical
Mr.  Hill has been lavish in his ex-
penditurea relative   to   scenery and
electrical effects and  it is not at all
unlikely that nothing eo elaborate haB
ever been presented at popular prices.
The- same may also be truthfully said
regarding the twenty or mtirt* separate!
and tlistinct changes    of    magnificent
costumes worn by the chorus in their
numberless songs written by that author of so many hig hits, Leo Kdwards.
One of the scenic    surprises    is thn
passing of a full rigged ship through
tin*  great   Panama  canal  and   sailing
out  into the Pacific ocean  with our
heroes "Mutt and Jeff" on hoard.   A
number  of  very  interesting dramatic
situations   containing   genuine   thrills
are addetl in order to relieve the stain
of incessant laughter.    The book fur-
nished by Hud Fisher and Owen Davis
L*ive*s   ample*   opportunity   for   fun   of
the "Mutt and Jeff" brand. The entire
production was staged under tine personal direction of Mr. Hill which gives
assurance of the best tiiat money can
buy  or  that  brains  can  Invent,    Mr.

The new vaudeville bill at the opera
house was well received last, night
and  those present  were  treated  to a
eluded negligence in not reducing the
speed of his vessel in a fog and with
neglecting to ascertain through the
Wireless operator the proximity of
ether  vessels.
The opinion filed by Inspector Sargent says that Captain Berry and all
other  licensed  officers of the    Nantucket are exonerated from blame.
Wrong Signal.
Captain Sargent charges Captain
Johnson with incompetency, negligence and inattention to duty. He is
charged with giving a wrong whistle
signal in the fog; with negligence and
inattention to duty because he took
no action to prevent the collision and
with incompetency and uiiskllfullneas
because proper discipline or organization was not maintained among the
crow in an effort to protect the lives
of all persons on board and because
no proper effort was promptly made
to obtain assistance from the Nantucket.
Did   Too   Much.
On the last   specification,   Captain
Sargent said:
"While we believe that Captain
Johnson, as an individual, did everything tiiat was humanly possible to
save the lives of all. it is to be re-
grelted that lie did not delegate certain dutif-s, which he attended to himself, to some of the other members
of liis crew and thus give himself
more Ume to devote to matters of
greater  importance."
Inspector Howard refused to sign
this report and rendered one of his
own in which lie found Captain Berry
guilty of failing to reduce speed in
a fog as charged, but not guilty of
| alleged failure to use the wireless
apparatus, and recommended that his
masters' license be revoked.
In announcing his report. Captain
Sargent stated lie had been a licensed
master and was experienced in navigation and that Inspector Howard was
not a licensed master and had no
practical experience as a navigator.

vet of charges for handling produce

North Uacific Fruit Distributors in a
ihrco-d.V session which just closed.
\ ne^�� b.tsis bas been determined
���foa Hereafter charges will be

with the box as the unit, rather than

The general result will be no material
Increase in the cost of doing business
The new charges are set forth in
the fololwing resolution, which is final, although the trustees have returned to their respective districts to meet
with tiie growers and explain that the
new system will really give a more
equitable distribution.
Charges for Handling.
"Resolved, That the charges of the
distributors for the season of 1014 for
handling produce be fixed as follows,
snitl charges to include collection of
railroad claims, all brokerages and
exchange on drafts and checks, excerpt as herein noted:
"Apples, 5 cent peer box and 1 cent
additional per box for the advertising and emergency fund.
"Pears, fi cents fer box and 1 cent

"On this new sche d <* we now take *
care of everything on a box basis,"
s.tid .T. H Robbins, general manager.
! Previously tturt was a charge of $15
per car by our office, $15 per car for;
brokerage in the east, exchange running trom 50 cents to $1 per car and a
10 per cent charge on the collection of j
���ill railroad claims, In the end the
new schedule will probably mean u
reduction  ln  total  cosl   per car.
"The elei methods was not altogeth-!
er.    Some districts Bhipped as many
as 750 boxes in a  car. although  the
average car is only fiiin boxes. Under :
the old schedule one district paid the
same for 630 boxes as another elid for i
T.r,0 boxes.   The new arrangement will
enable us to extend our Ktlarieti ser- i
vice and will give us additional salaried representatives in the east.    The
charge for advertising io the same as
last year."
"The American and not the French
worn n created the demand for risotie
dresses," the dressmaker says. "The
French initiated the mode, but the
Americans degraded it outrageously.
The slit skirt, and transparent corsage
are made in nine cases out of ten for
exportation. The PariaieBitne knows
just, how far to go. but for our American customers nothing seems too daring."
The campaign of the Women's Patriotic league against startling costume's is receiving unexpected support, even from leading dressmakers.

or���as the French put it���"Noblesse Oblige.
It is a very natural and right principle that those who
by their position in life command the respect of others
should deserve it and be worthy of maintaining their
position.    "Much is expected of those in high station."
But thia principle ia not confined to persons of noble birth
���it has a hundred applications. It applies, for example,
to those manufacturers of
reputation and prestige who
make goods of high quality
and who advertise them constantly in the newspapers of
the land.
By their advertising they have
attained an eminence where
the very best in quality and
good service is expected  of
them. They have set a standard and their very business
life depends on the constant
maintenance of it.
So ihat when you buy advertised articles you rest assured
that you are getting the best
value that money can buy.
Well may you place your faith
in advertised goods. Well
may you give them preference over articles which you
can only hope may prove

TUESDAY,   MARCH   17,   1914.
Infant Son of Prince  Victor and  Belgian  Princess Barred from
French Territory.
J'aris, March 16.���Europe's young-
sat exile is the live weeks old I'rince
l-ouis Napoloou, son of Prince Victor
Napoleon, the Honapartlst pretender. 1
The latter, with his wife', Princess'
( Uraantine* of Belgium, makes his
home a4. Brussels, where their little
boy was born in January.
Article I of the law enacted by the
national legislature of Prance, bearing the date of June 22, 1886, explicitly states that French territory is
barred, not ouly to the chiefs of the
dynasties that have exercised sovereign away in France, but also to their
direct heir, in order of primogeniture.
This has been construes! until now to
mean the eldest son of the pretenders, but not, IS childless, their younger
Thus the Duke of Orleans, chief of
tho French branch of Uie House of
Bonrbon, was already exiled during
the  lifetime  of  his   father,   the   late
Comta de Paris.    lie has no children .
of   his marriage    with    Archduchess
Maria  Dorothea  of Austria, aud    his
n��xt heir is ills only brother.    Prince
T* rdinand  of  France,  Otikc  of Mont- '
pansier.    The  latter  is  free to cornel
and ge> in France, without let or hind-1
ranee, and last year, when be visited]
Bordeaux and Marseilles, on board his]
steam yacht  Mekong, to address    the]
local  geographical    societies    on   the |
subject of Ilis explorations of the unknown  regions  of Tongkinp.  lie'  was |
welcomed and entertained not only by
the municipal authorities, but also by
the prefects or governors of the departments,   and   by   the   generals In
military command thereof.
Nor has any objection ever been
raised to the visits, or even prolonged residence in France, of General
Prince Ixiuis Honaparte, of the Russian army, only brother of the Bona-
partist pretender, and until January
23 last, his next heir. But little Prince
Ixmis Napoleon, ns the first bom son
of the Bonapartist pretender, is less
fortunate, and as long as the present
law of banishment remains on the
statute book of France, and as long
as the republic continues in existence,
will remain an exile from French territory, and will never be permitted to
see, save from a distance, the land on
two separate occasions subject to the
sway of his family.

' for another year when the charge upon
the taxpayer would be infinitely greater, the councillor and the reeve were
of the opinion that same must be nms*
j tered  together  this  year.    Therefore
j there is little likelihood of nny money
from   the  $500,000   road   bylaw   being
spent  this year and no work can be
Btarted  unless the money comes out
of current  revenue.
The proposal to start more men was
laid over for consideration next week.
Reeve Fraser stated that the money
which arrived yesterday had not been
expected until April, hut the remainder could now be expected within the
next, two  or  at   least  'hree  weeks.
A request from tin* Victorian Order
ol'  Nurses  for a   grant of  $l(inO   was
.left   to   tin*   fin, ner   committee*.
Support  Union   Printing.
The i*c*i|ii**s; from the New Westminster Typographical union asking tiiat
all  printing contracts be let to union
houses caused a little debate, hut  in
future no printing will he given out to
non-union  firms, those supporting the
request    being    Reeve    Fraser  and
j Councillors Bevan, Fau-Vel and Allen.
Councillor Rose was chairman of the
committee ami therefore had no vote.
