Huerta Offers Conditional
[ Apology Which Has Been
Admiral    Mayo   in   Original   Demand
for   Salute   Agreed   to   Return
Washington, April IB. -The United
|"Sta'.es government today accepted
'[General Huerta's offer to salute the
IStara and Stripes as an apology for
Ithe arrest of American bluejackets at
ITampIco a week ago today. The
(Huerta government's salute to the
["���'American flag will be answered with
", a salute to the tri-color of the Mexican nation.
This   arrangement,   the   details   of
���which were being finally arranged to-
1 night In an exchange of official messaged between Washington and Mexico
ICIty, ended, In the view of all high
administration officials, the crisis that
haei  arisen  In the last  few days resulting in the dispatch of the American warships to Mexican waters.    Executive quarters    and    congressional
circles breathed a sigh of relief that
the tenslou had  passed.
' Ships Turn Back.
No time has been set for the firing
of the salute and until the details are
arranged no further orders will be
Kent to the American fleet now proceeding aouth. lt practically is certain that while many of the vessels
will be turned back, others will continue south and a substantially In
creased nawl force will be maintained
in Mexican waters. ,
Huerta's offer and request for a return salute, caused I'resident Wilson
to ask for an opinion from the counsellor of the state and navy departments. All reported that it was the
invariable custom In naval practice to
return a salute and cited precedents.
The president also was informed that
itear Admiral Mayo on making the
original demand for a salute had
agreed to return the courtesy.
Not  a   Recognition.
Mr Wilson said a return of a salute under such circumstances did not
involve recognition of the Huerta government, but merely was an act of
the same character as grasping the
hand of an individual who was apologizing as he extended it. Secretary
liryan also took the view that the
American salute would be given to the
flag of the Mexican nation, just as
much respected by the constitution-
alists as by the Huerta government
and no tactical recognition was involved.
Crisis Ic Passed.
Precedents In which the United
States returned the salute of other
nations which apologized to it were
cited and it was generally agreed in
executive quarters that Huerta's compliance with the American demand had
dissipated a tense situation.
In less than 48 hours after President Wilson had ordered the Atlantic and Pacific fleets to Mexican waters and had informed General Huerta
that unless a salute was f Ired to atone
'for repeated performances against the
dignity of the United States there
would be serious consequences, the
answer came a complete acceptance
of the demand of the Washington government.
Four Large Manufacturing Concerns Plan
To  Start Operations  Here  Immediately
500,000 SHINGLES
Shull Interests to Erect New
Plant Near New Westminster.
New Westminster us the centre of
lumber operations for the lower mainland was never better emphasized
than yesterday morning when a visit
was paid to this city by representatives of the Shull interests of Portland and Everett, the announcement,
being made at the same time that the
company bad decided to erect a largo
shingle mill on ihe north arm of the
r*raeer rher in I). L. lffl liurnaby,
which will have a capacity from the
commencement of 500*000 shingles
per day.
Two of the Shull family made th-a
trip in company with Mr. Tucker, the
designer of the Kraser Hlver Mills
and the mammoth plant of the British-
Canadian Lumber corporation, who lt
is understood, has been retained ta
superintend the erection of the new
shingle mill.
The American firm Is one of the
best known in.the Pacific northwest,
having holdings In Oregon, Washington, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The
lowering of the tariff walls between
the United States and Canada, the
rearrangement of ratc�� between the
Great Northern aod the B. C. E. R.,
and last bnt not least, the opening of
the Panama canal, is tbe cause of
the selection of this locality as itr|
Canadian base of operations. While)
the shingle indus-try is at present
stagnant, owing to the general depression which has affected both thlB
country and the old world, a general
change in the situation Is expected
by manufacturers when the Panama
canal is op��ned with the consequent
lowering of freight ra^es. Ocean
charters are low at the present time,
but a still lower rate is expected when
the big ditch through the isthmus in
ready for operation.
Considerable competition was indulged in between the municipalities
bordering on the North Arm, Point
C^ey and 8outh Vancouver making
desperate efforts to secure the location of the mill within their borderB,
but the site offered by the Burnaby
owners, together with a plentiful supply of water promised by the municipality. Is believed to hsve led the
company to decide upon D.L. 161.
Twenty-five machines will be installed in the first instance, the
the tc:al capacity of these being half
a million shingles rer day. Burnabv

news that arrangements are practically completed for the leasing of the

the people of this city a true reflection of this great opera of the 16th
century, as produced on the Ixmdon,

anticipation been so veil satisfied by
those who attended the opening performance of this club last evening.
From the instant the curtain re-

performance, interest waa intense,
mainly because the organization had
successfully overcome what is the
chief obstacle today with the most
venturesome amateur organizations,
that of the enormous expense Involved in producing a correct stage setting nnd using suitable and attractive costumes. The scenery alone, especially in the opening of tlle second

he slated as "outrageous." He pointed om; that in the East municipally

There is one unfortunate side to the exposure of the
methods of Mayor Baxter before the grain commission at
Winnipeg and that is the amount of free advertising the
mental midget in the city hall on Burrard Inlet is receiving. Though this is to be regretted, it can hardly be avoided if the Fraser river is to be set right in the estimation
of those who heard the slanders advanced against it at
One point, however, should be made clear. In the
matter of the elevator question New Westminster has no
fight with or grievance against Vancouver as a whole.
The issue at present lies altogether with those members
of the Vancouver delegation to Winnipeg who had not
manners enough to refrain from slandering a neighbor
or sense enough to realize that by their slandering they
were hurting their own cause.
To the solid business men of both cities it has long
been apparent that the interests of both were too closely
allied to permit of internal quarrels and these men will regret and condemn the attitude adopted by some of the
Vancouver representatives at Winnipeg in the attempt to
cram obvious untruths down the throats of the members
of the grain commission.
As to the grain elevator itself, there is only one stand
to take. It is natural for the Fraser river interests to
wish to see it located somewhere on this stream and it is
just as natural for the Burrard inlet interests to desire
it on the inlet. Even passing over the fact that the Fraser
offers a choice of many sites and Vancouver only one location, the men who are fighting for the river are sportsmen enough to admit that the elevator coming to the coast
will be a benefit to the entire lower mainland and that it
sheuld go where the best advantages are offered. Following this line, they confined themselves to presenting New
Westminster's case at Winnipeg in a straightforward
manner and solely with arguments in favor of this river,
without going out of their way to libel other locations.
It, therefore, came as a painful surprise to hear the chief
magistrate of Vancouver resorting to mud-slinging tactics which might have been expected, perhaps, from an
irresponsible ward heeler, but which were entirely un-
looked for from a man in his position.
That Los Angeles crook who escaped from jail disguised as a policeman gave the show away when he broke

Writer  in   Manchester  Guardian   Recalls Good Work of  British
Columbia Cleric.
Old timers who knew the late Rev.
Mt. Irviu (Father Pat) will appreciate
the following tribute paid to his memory by John Bruce In the Manchester
(England) Guardian:
On this night there were not those
sounds���the half-uttered complainings
and sighs of sick and Injured men���
which, If they make' a little, mountain
hospital more pitiful, make it also
more human. There had been an explosion at our railway camp in the
Rockies, and two men were lying
very still in a side room, tloir faces
covered. Tbe third was saying very
softly and fearfully to himself. "<>h,
Madre! Oh, Madre!" Al! the others
lay quietly, forgetting their pains because of u I'resence which had come
jiear to them  often, yet  which  they
j would always fear. "Old man" Stelling
! came Into the living room and sat
j down by the stove. He smoked ner-
! vously for a few minutes and then
| explained, "I just came out for a lit-
! tie while." I nodded, this being an
I occasion  when  silence was  kindly.
"How are the boys?" he asked.
| When I had told him of their troubles
he was silent. Ills grey eyes were
dim, and maybe his thoughts were of
the early pioneer days when he said,
more to himself than to me, "Yes, sir,
there's nobody to tell them of a forgiveness large enough for their waywardness, nobody to calm their fears,
anil no healing for their other wounds.
He Is a little man, a darned little
man." I nodded again for we were
both thinking of our curate, who
thought he was too good for his place
and the riff-raff of Europe had no
company for a graduate of Oxford.
"You should have known Father
Pat." he continued; "he was a man."
"Oh, was he a Catholic?" T asked.
"Nary a Catholic. He wasn't anything. He was just n man! Yes,** sir!
He and his wife bail Just heen married
when they came here twenty years
ago. He was a big, strong-looking
man, but that was all the boys knew

legs of such a length as to raise the

Cut the newspapers into strips, light
wltb a candle and apply tbem gradually, so as to keep a low rtre under tbe
whole dish. Wben tbe paper ls all
done tbe steak will be done. Bntter
may be applied so as to make It grateful."

From   Little   Klver's   Mouth   Brule
First Saw Lake   Ontario.
Now that the relentless force of
progress ls overwhelming the Humber
valley, near Toronto, and the landscape gardener and prosecutor of trespassers are preparing to destroy the
bounty of nature's slow mutations, a
special interest is Imparted to the
story of the river's varied past and
transient present by K. M. Uzars, "In
the Valley of tbe Humber, 1615-
1913." But tbe stimulus of this Impending fate Is not necessary to BUB;
tain a keen interest, for tbe author
has Imparted a Bpeclal charm to every
feature. Careful research in a multitude of sources is not revealed by
masses of dry detail, but shows
through facile descriptions, citations
and entertaining narratives. The
geologist who reads the records of
slow succeeding eras of ice and subtropical warmth ls freely drawn upon. Prof. Coleman and others who
have studied tbe geology of tbe Toronto district are cited aa authorities,
and there Is no sacrifice either of
careful scientific accuracy or of the
entertaining arrangement of conclusions and speculations. ,
There- Is tbe most rarefully-
welgbed scientific opinion regarding
tbe aspect of adjacent areas when
uncovered by the slow recession of
the Ice cap, when the mammoth
tramped the ilch herbage by the
shor ��� of the ancient lake, and during
the geologically recent times when
the river found ils present course anil
exravsted Its winding channel and
beautiful but doomed valley,
Indian tribes furniili solemn and
Impressive pages of the number's history, and their story Is entettalnlngly
blended with that of Kuropean aggression and conquest since Brule
first discovered the river three hundred years ago. Ixing since tbe date
of tbe skull with tbe arrowhead
there were salmon at the mouth of
the river, and wben the mills at
I.ambton were young Indians would
shoot the dam on tbelr way down to
spear, and In the swamps nearby
there were numerous picnic parties.
For many years In the nineteenth
century baskets were sold in Lamb-
ton, and the swamps of the Lower
Humber furnished part of the mater-
flal for making. Credit Indians came
constantly, entered where the*/ rhose
and took what they chose and peaceably departed. They had the right to
enter any swamp, and not longer
than eighteen years ago a large party
of them exercised It.
The date of the discovery of Ibe
Humber as the pathway to the Oreat
Lake Is not only of respectable antiquity, but it is worthy of finding a
place in the list of great events of Its
time. "Brule," says Miss Lizars, arrived in the valley of the St. Lawrence the next year after the English
first gained a fooihot.' in North America, and he started upon bjf journey with the savages which result.ei
in the first expedition ever mei I
westward of the Oreat River of Cai.
a-'a, and in the discovery of Lake Hu
ron, ten years before the landing of
the Plymouth Pilgrims; and six
years after Hudson first saw the river
that bears bis name lirule stood on
the beach at the mouth of the Humber and saw Lake Ontario���-'the first
civilized man to gaze out upon tbat
broad expanse of waterB.' "
The missionary spirit Inspired the
early explorers of thia vast unknown,
and while the message which impelled them to give up their lives
may broaden witb the advances of
the age, their heroism and fortitude
will endure among the most Inspiring
records of human devotion.���Toronto

Citizen who enjoys the marsh shone,
where the birds are available, gets
the fresh air but no ducks.
The ruthless market hunter feeds
the wild ducks wheat and barley,
goes out in his launch, rounds up
the ducks, and slaughters them with
six and ten-shot pump guns. Is that
what   we   call   "sport"?
There were 25,000 wild ducks killed by market hunters at Long Point
in 1913. The slaughter at Point
Koyal for last year was G3.000.
There were 17,r>00 wild ducks killod
by market hunters at Mitchell Hay

Coming to Canada, Dr. Drysdale
takes a strong and controversial note.
Ile says: "Little can be said about this
part of our empire, owing to paucity
��'f statistical Information; but that
little is most Interesting and significant As regards total population, the
census returns show a very rapid Increase, that of .14 per rent, (from 5,-
371,316 in 1901 to 7,304,838 in 1911) being without parallel in modem times.
When we eome to consider the birth
rate, however, a  remarkable phenom-

enon appears. The only part of the
Dominion for which vital statistics
appear to be available Is the province
or Ontario, and It Is amusing to find
that while Australia and New V.ea
latiel have come In for the strictures of
Mr. Roosevelt, a much more extreme'
example lay nearer home. The birth
rate of Ontario was only 22 or 23 per
thousand lu the eighties, and actually
dropped to 19 in 1891), since when it
lias recovered (owing lo an Increased
marriage rate) to about 25 per thousand. Its lowest birth rate was equal
to that of France today. Hut the
death rate had also fallen -namely, to
10 per thousand so that the natural
increase was nine per thousand, or
not much behind that of most civilized
countries. This fact may be commended lo the consideration of those
who think that the slow rate of increase of the French population is due
to its low birth rate.
"ThlB remarkable phenomenon now
appears. The Increase of the 'birth
rate ln Ontario to 25 per thousand
has been accompanied, not by a corresponding rise in the natural increase
but by an Increase of the death rate
to 14 pe.r thousand. So the additional
births appear to have populated the
graveyard rather than the country, lt
has been suggested to me by Dr. Stevenson that the Increase ^n the birth
and death rates of Ontario may be exaggerated, in that due allowance haB
not been made by the Canadian authorities for the effect of immigration. But even making the fullest allowance foi this, there can be no
doubt that both the birth and death
rates have risen, and by nearly the
same amount. The city of Toronto is a
most striking example of the same

A Storm of Hrltish criticism is raging about the head of the unfortunate
railway magnate who remarked thatj
his Importation of mi American railway manager was due to the scarcity
of Uritish talent, says the Literary

Oreat Kastern Itailway of Kngland.
and little' would have been said about
it, apparently, but when he triad to
make all clear by explaining that the
dearth of proficient men in lhe British railway world made the choice of

his foot squarely ou the Biftlih iion>

was sacrificed to seniority, el'rhaps-
there are able mei In the Hrltish railway service, he admitted, consolingly,
but, he added, "the trouble Is that
under our present system I never get'
to hear of tbem."
1-ord   Claud   is   chairman    of    the
Oreat Eastern, and the editors of Hie
Hrltish dallies level  at  him some of
the  finest  sarcasm   we have  noticed
ln the llritlsh press for a long time,
usually  concluding  with   the  remark;
that the road would also be still further Improved if It had a new chairman capable of discovering talent un-
d >r his very nose, among  the 45,000,-
ono  Inhabitants  of Britain.    As    the
Ixmdon   Daily   Mail   puts  it:     "Whan
Ixird Claud has clearly established la
the need for fresh blood on his directorate and for a complete change In
methods which  have proved successful only in extinguishing capacity."
No   Inhospltallty  to  Thornton.
It  should be said et once that the
British exhibit no Inhospltallty to Mr.
Thornton, who goes from the Ixmg Island   Railroad  to the  (ireat Kastern.
On the Long Island he has had tplen-
dld experience in handling 40,000,000
suburban  passengers  yearly  by  electric traction.    On  the Oreat  Kastern
he  will  handle  100,000,000,    with    ai
change  from  steam   to electricity   in
prospec.    The press  speak kindly of
him and make it clear that their.ob
Jectlons relate purely to Lord Claud's
slur on home talent.    They seem    to
grant   Mr.   Thornton's   request  made
when asked  by  an iuttrvlewer If he
had any message for the British public.    He said:   'It  is just this:     Olve

He added rather significantly that
as soon as he was able to take charge
of the road he intended'to get in personal touch with all the members of

hope that he would not overlook any

If that was au American Innovation,

Argument for British Talent.
The argument for British railway-
talent Is well put by the London,
Standard, which, after half a column
of satire on Ixird Claud's fruitless
search for men In Britain, remarks:.
"No doubt Mr. Thornton is a very-
able man, and If the (ireat Eastern
Itailway directors had no equally
oapable candidate before them, they
did quite right to appoint him. The
fact that he is an American is certainly no disqualification, for the
management of an English railway-
has plenty of room for such transatlantic methods as may apply to our
very different conditions. But it la
absurd to suggest that the American
had to be chosen because no Englishman is good enough for the job.
"If Lord Claud Hamilton could notj
find a thoroughly qualified native,
candidate he was unfortunate and, wee
���mutt add, exceptional, in his experience.

"Nor Is it true that our young engineers and officials are lsckinc in
brains, energy, or initiative. They
are better educated than their pre-
iLcissors, and they are not inferior
to them in courage, alertness, or resource. To decry them, as Lord Claud
Hamilton does, is to yield to the rath-
er ridiculous and wholly mischievous
fashion of self-depreciation which has
grown up of late.
Can Teach Rivals.
"Is the same way we used to be
told a few years ago that English,
machines and mechanical tools were
not worth comparing with those of
America and Germany. Hundreds of
thousands of pounds' worth of good
English machinery wns replaced by
the product of foreign factories, most
of which has been sent to the scrap-
heap by this time. As a fact, though
we have some lessons to learn from
our rivals, they have quite as many
to draw from us, and there Is not thn |
smallest occasion for an undue anc*e
depressing humility. We are not sc I
deficient In administrative or mechanical talent that we need send
despairing cablegrams to America
when there is a good pos* vacant andi
a teood man required to fill It."

trict league bucking the proposition.
This opposition wus naturally to be expect) d when one considers the talent which has been at the head of affairs for the past two seasons.
A lon j. comes the Idea for resusti*
eating the old Vancouver and District
league, a meeting for such purpose being called for this evenlgn in the Terminal ('ity. This will mean that New
Westminster will be allowed to field a
representative team in the league next
fall providing a manager can be obtained who lias the Influence and the
strength to gather together the local
soccer men.
New Westminster should have been
allowed in the Vancouver and Distiict
organization last fall but the petty
moves of David I.eith, who has always
shown antagonism towards the Royal
City shelved the proposal on the plea
that It was solely a city organization
although allowing Coquitlam to retain
its franchise.
Opinions connected with the D.F.A.
are not altogether unanimous towards
the ruling body for Canada but (rem
recent events, New Westminster appears to be In line witli an organization which would allow this city to
secure a franchise and thus be up
among the top-notchers on the lower
mainland fighting for a championship.
That the city has enough players of
first league calibre to make a name
for itself in the soccer realm was de- |
monstrated   during   the   past   winter
when the Rovers, one of seven in the
City  league,  was  capable of  holding
down Coquitlam, champions    of    the

that it was impossible for her to keep
discipline among the nurses of thn
Royal Jubilee hospital If her authority was not sustained by the board of
directors, Miss I. (!. Tombe, the lady
superintendent of that institution, resigned without notice at 9 o'clock
this morning. Three head nurses out
of sympathy with her have given due
notice of their Intention 10 leave.
The particular instance* which occasioned Miss Tombe's action Is typical of a long series of similar incidents and (i result of the ethers,

It is with pride that members of the
Loyal Order of Moose claim that there
is no caste in their lodge; that rank
and title count for nothing; that there
Is no necessity of being learned or of
having wealth as a recommendation.
The order, according to the national
officials, is the one real distinctive
American fraternal society.

political belief.
The only qualification it demands is

A Little Girl's Composition.
There was once a little girl wbo*
wished to write a composition. At
least she didn't wish to. but sbe could
not help- IL because ber teacher said
a composition was to be written. The
little glri got out all her pencils and
with flying colors and the result is
that the hundred and fifty members

lodge permitting them to enroll members at a reduced fee.
The Moose place big emphasis on
loyalty. They are not only true to each
other, but true to their best instincts
and intuitions.
Th* Moose believe that the educa-
I tlon of girls arid boys���up to, say, 14
'or 15 years.of age���s.iould be practically the same. And so girls are being taught to work in the fields, and
any who cane to go into the shops out
at Mooseheart are welcomed exactly
on a par with boys.

point wlrere they are able to earn
money at their work, they will be

on the lslund of Capri, nenr Naples.
It is about 170 feet lone, 100 wide nud

by a narrow arch In the' limestone
cliff. Tbe water within resembles, according to one eyewitness, "liquid sapphire" and glitters witb a pale bluer
Walls and roof of the Rlue grotto
are tiltrnmnrine ln color.
The genernl Wue tone of tbe place Is
snld to be caused by the reflection of
the sun's rnys in passing through tbe

The o|>enins of the grotto Is so es-
ceedlncly small that the light whleh

A stay of at least twenty minutes is

Loudon, April 16. The creation of
a new organization to be known as
Ihe Empire Settlement and Iteiinion
board is contemplated by a croup of
people Interested in the Overseas
Dominions. They have drafted a
scheme which has recently been informally submitted to the agents-general of the various dominions. The
chief objects of the proposed organlz
a;ion are to promote the distribution
of Britisli population throughout th.
Empire, to render financial aid to approved persons and families who desire to emigrate, and also to aid settlers already in 'the dominions by ad
vancing money lo pay the passages
so  their  families can  join   theft),
Ben II. eMorgan, editor of the Brit
tinnlc Review, and chairman of thi'
Trade and Industry Committee of the
Royal Colonial Institute, characterized the present day methods of emigration as wasteful and Ineffective,
line.' ilie emigrants were generally
compelled to spend nearly all they!
had on the cost of the voyage, arriv*
in1; a: their destination with a minimum supply   11'    money.    His idea.
which will be tried with a party ot
forty leaving for New South Wales, ifl
that applicants should pay one^thlrd
of their fares, and give a guarantee
involving the legal obligation to pay
the  rest  by  Instalments.
Thc runds for the necessary ad<
vances made by thi board would be
raised by a system of guarantees, a
plan which has already been adopted,
by the Canadian Imperial Homo Reunion Society. It Is also urged that
the establishment of 'this board is
needed in ordi r to coordinate various
and often conflicting efforts of . the*
Home and Overseas governments and
philanthropic societies now tngaged
in 'the   work  of  assisted   emigration;
In the United Kingdom the Local
Governmenl board and the Homo
Office- ure both concerned in affording financial aid to the Board of
Trade through labor exchanges, and
an'  also  inclined  to  take action.
The promo.ers of this scheme give,
assurance that there is no intention
to advocate the emigration of tho
incapable or unfit, but Hhey think that
then* are many thousands of country
bred people who are now Buffering
trom lack of regular employment and
leg.tlmato opportunities who would
do well overseas, but tha*:. they cannot get away owing to lank of means.
Amongst these are a number of soldiers and sailor*, who find peculiar
difficulty in returning to civil cm-
ploymi nt. The alms of the board, Hi
is Btated,  nre Hint  all  Imperial  work
should be carried out along strictly
business lines, and not in any way as|
a charitable organization.
