the Americans could fish without re,-

The third resolution was contingent
upon the second and was also undesirable in their opinion. It was further suggested that the new naturalization act would aid in stopping the
influx of Japs as it provided for an
adequate knowledge of the Knglish or
the French language.

Last year 114 licenses had been issued to fish above tlie bridge; 7 ot

be issued to white and Indian fishermen only, for one month prior to their
being issued to anybody else.
Suggestions from M. P.
President Maiden reported tbat af-
ter consultation with Col. Taylor and
Mr, Cunningham, these gentlemen
suggested that a basis of the solution
of the Japanese problem might In-
found in the prohibition of anyone
who was not a bona fide resident from
fishing above the bridg". at any time
Of the year. This would do away
will: the encroachments of the Japanese, who were not residents above
the bridge, The regulation suggested
would Of course mean tbat no whites
who were not residents above the
bridge would be allowed to fish for
Falmon above the bridge, nnd likewise
lhat no resideni above the bridge
v d he allowed to fish below the
bridge for any kind of salmon.
(Vi.  Taylor and  Mr.  Cunningham
j.   Browse,  i'ort   Haney,  asserted
there   were   some   7,0   Japanese   boa's
above  the  bridge at  present     There
were twenty Japs at  Whonnock. One
Jap nt   Glen   Valley had  bought  five
acres   and   he   intended   to  pui   four
boats on   the    river.    The    Langley
board of trade were going to hold a
meeting next Friday to protest again*
1st it.   He criticised adversely the Bug,
i gestion  of Col.  Taylor  and   Mr.  Cun-
| ningham   and   considered   they   aided
I the Japs more than anything else.
Messrs.  In.-.ley,  Mann and  Brodrick
' and others concurred in these views
|and it was finally  resolved tbat tbe
executive   council  of   the   association
I should met Col. Taylor and  Mr. Cun-
I ningham   and   endeavor   to   find   out
I some satisfactory means to cheek the

Ills Honor Judge Howay handed
down several important decisions on
Saturday ln the county court.
In the appeal case of Heed against,
the B. C. Oil Kcflnery company of I'ort
Moody, his honor sustained the appeal from the decision of the magistrate at I'ort Moody, und Imposed a
fine on the defendant of $50 with costs.
This was a case in which Captain
Heid, the harbor master of Vancouver, prosecuted the fl. C. Oil Refinery
company for polluting the waters of
Burrard Inlet by allowing oil to stream
into the waters from its factory at
I'ort. Moody.
The defence did not deny that a
small quantity of oil did flow into the
hay at the head of the inlet, but pleaded it was infinitesimal and could not
lx avoided. The company also contended that under the Vancouver harbor act the commissioners had not advertised any regulations which had
legal force, and until that was done
nu offence bad been committed.
The prosecution on the other hand
held that In tbe absence of special
regulations for Vancouver harbor tbe
general shipping law of Canada applied and founded on an order-ln-coun-
cil dated !14th of December, 1911!.
The magistrate at I'ort Moody found
t'ne Kefinery company guilty of a
technical offence and adjudged it a
meet case for suspended sentence.
Against this decision Captain Reed,
who acted for the Vancouver harbor
commissioners, appealed on the ground
that the magistrate bad no option but
to impose the statutory fine of $50
aud Judge Howay lias sustained the

out the duty of all Christians in face
of this awful warning to be prepared

all the churches the music was appropriate to the solemnity of the occasion.
Notwithstanding the very rainy
weather the churches were well filled
and the deeply impressive services
carried  marked effect.
Salvation  Army.
Tbe Salvation Army held three special services in memory of their
scores of deceased comrades. Captain Carruth.rg, the local commander, read a cablegram from General
Bramwell Booth to Salvationists and
their friends in 11. C. which ran as
follows: "I feel very deeply the loss
of Major Sinicoe and Knsign Mardell
and other comrades and I join with
you iu gratitude to God for their
faithfulness and self sacrifice. Who
will take their place'.' Whether we
live or whether we die, the Army
must go forward.''
Previous to the services In the af-
l.ondon. June 7. A sensational incident of the day was tbe discovery of
a young man who gave his name as
Hurry Pike, In Buckingham palace,
where the royal family spent Sunday.
In the early hours of the morning
Pike entered the palace, as he explained afterwards to prove that entrance could be asily effected. Once
he was near the queen's apartment.
He wus finally discovered, however,
and overpowered in the servants'
quarters. He will be arraigned tomorrow on a charge of having been found
on enclosed premises for unlawful
There Is nothing to show tbat Pike
is connected with tbe women in suffrage movement.
Pike was Ignorant of tlie interior
of the palace and had several adven
tures while wandering about inside.
Notwithstanding the heavy guard of
soldiers and police, Pike scaled the
palace wall and climbed into a basement window on the north side of the
building, where Quean Mary has her
apartments. He entered several of
the vlcant rooms and In one changed
hla clothing, which was torn and soiled through scaling the wall and crawling along the driveway to reach the
palace building. The suit he exchanged for his own belongs to a servant. The exploits of Pike caused
great excitement and also brought
forth a deal of criticism of the system of guarding tbe palace and the
lack of precaution which permitted a
stranger who might have been an as-
sasln to wander for more than au
hour through a royal residence.

Two of the nine New Westminster
people who wtnt down with the Empress of Ireland, bave been saved.
according to a letter received on Saturday by Mrs. Barker, from Charles
Bristow, who reports himself and his
IS year old son, among those saved.
Mrs. Barker is a friend and a former
neighbor of the Brlstows, residing on
Eighteenth avenue. East Burnaby.
For some unknown reason the
names of the Bristows were not mentioned in tlie press dispatches as being among the rescued. Mrs. Bristow.
wife and mother of those saved, went
down with the hundreds of others in
the terrible disaster.
Mr. Bristow is a former employee
at the B.C.E.R, shops, losing his position when the order for retrenchment
was issued, llo was on his way to
England where be hoped to get a
position he formerly held before coming out to Canada.
The letter to Mrs. Barker read:

these ad men?" This is not altogether a local query, for whereever
ihese organisers of publicity, the honest kind of publicity, nifl, there are
hundreds in the vlclnil, who bave
never before beard of such an organization.
Let it be known that the slogan
of this body of men. which is by no
weans a small organization, is "Honest Advertising is the Only Good
Business." The Pacific Coast delegates will meet in Vancouver to compare views aud to prepare a plan of
business morality that will reach all
the countries on the globe.
From Vancouver, or immediately
following the visit to New Westminster, many of the delegtes will leave
for Toronto where the Associated Advertising Clubs of America will meet
for the eleventh annual convention.
Tlle trip to New Westminster, the
Fraser Mills, Colony Farm and Port
Coquitlam will be made on Saturday
next when the business of the convention will be over and the delegates
free to go in for a merry time. In nee
il is altogether necessary that the
preparations made in the Royal City
shall be iu keeping with the past history and name of the metropolis of
the   Fraser  river.
Although the arrangements have
been made in rough form a considerable amount of work still remains
for the various committees and the
co-operation of the citizens is desired
in order that no hitch will be possible on the program drawn up.
Chief among these requirements ls
the luncheon to be given the delegates in tbe drill ball on Sixth street.

H. H. Stevens, M.P. for Vancouver in the Dominion
House, has sprung an eleventh-hour notice to the effect
that he intends moving an amendment to the Im
migration Act to be used as a barrier against all
Asiatic immigration coming from south of the fiftieth
parallel of north latitude. It is hardly to be expected that
the suggested sweeping alteration in the Act will be put
through during the present session for two reasons, first
able time this year.   Then again, it may be that Mr. Stevens, who is fairly astute in his way, gave notice of his: vi��''* ��l
lend th
amendment only as a face-saving measure in view of the
complex Hindu situation at present obtaining in his own
constituency, while it is further possible that the federal
authorities'are fully aware of the Vancouver member's
ideas and intentions.
But, apart from all such suppositions and deductions,
the proposed amendment to the Immigration Act, of which
Mi. Stevens has given notice, serves one valuable purpose.
It tells the East, the whole of Canada and the Empire
that strong feeling exists in British Columbia on the
subject of the Oriental influx and, brought to the front at
this particular time when four hundred highly undesirable Hindus are fuming and raging at our gates, it drops
a hint of how public opinion in this province regards
their attempt to force themselves upon us.

Miss Hansford, of New  Westminster,
recently from New  York, who yester-
I day   addressed   the   Women's   University club at a meeting held at the res-
i Idenoe of Mrs.  Hart, Courtney street.

j tion. presided, and among the specially
' invited guests   were   Superintendent

j much interested In the subject matter
I of tho lecturer's talk.
After explaining Something of the]
purpose of Di. Montessori's system of
j child training, which Is to train tin-
visual, tactile and muscular sensations, and develop them simultaneously in the child, Miss Hansford passed
around several of the little devices
which are used by the children in
these model kindergartens. These
were of peculiar interest, and included a number of small frames about
eighteen inches square made to represent garments with buttons and button-holes, hooks and eyes, clasps, eyelets and laces, and buckles, by means
of which the child is taim'.it to manipulate these very common devices
for  fastening  clothes,  boots,  etc.
Tin- training is done under the sup-
position (to the child I that It is a
game, and the little ones are given
free choice of what they will  play.

blocks of graduated sizes, is a game
played by the child on the floor, and

"The primary work." Miss Hansford
explained, "is still In the experimental
stage, and has not yet teen long
enough under observation for any very
denude results lo he published. But
the principal or the system has made
a wide appeal to educators, and already in the I'nited SLites: there are
100 MontesfOri schools:' Kngland.
France and Germany have all established Bcohols along the same lines."
The great idea of the system, Miss
Hansford said, was to give the Individuality of the child full freedom
[or the exercise and development,
rutin r than to repress it, as was the
result of nearly all the systems of education   in  use  up ti) the  present.

The News is the Morning
Paper of New Westminster
and the Fraser Valley. See

In the course of these articles I have not hitherto
touched upon the comparative advertising opportunities of local dealers and the multiple store company
���an organization that operates a chain of stores in
various towns. The general outlook for the retail
dealer is regarded as discouraging, and by many
this condition is attributed to the increasing number
of multiple stores.
Their competition is very hard for the ordinary
retailer to meet.   The big trader can buy in larger
parcels than the small one.   He is in the same position with regard to the manufacturers as a wholesaler.   He thus secures for himself the middleman's
profit.   The ordinary retailer has to pay the middleman's profit.   His own margin is therefore reduced
or else he must charge higher prices to the public,
and in either case he is hurt.  Sometimes the bie multiple store company actually becomes a manufacturer of part or all the goods which it handles.
In some trades again, firms originally established as manufacturers trading with retailers have
opened stores of their own. They thus enter into
competition with their own customers, or, as sometimes happens, abandon altogether wholesale business in favor of retail. The competition which thev
can give the ordinary store keeper is very severe.
It would look on the face of it, as if the multiple
trader had everything his own way, but there is one
thing which he cannot do, and the fact may be commended to the customers of retail traders as well as
to the retail traders themselves. What the multiple
store company cannot do is to give every branch the
same direct, personal supervision, the same intimate
study of the wants of the people, as the storekeeper
who is himself a member of the community in which
he operates. The latter has grown up among the
people of the town. He is one of them. He knows
their needs and can meet their tastes with a more intimate understanding than the proprietor of a large
chain of stores, all of which have to be conducted
more or less according to one pattern.
Finaly the single store retailer or the retailer
whose stores arc confined to one or two in a single
town can always advertise far more efficienctly and
far more profitably in proportion to this turnover
than the multiple store company. The latter may be
able to afford larger advertising appropriations.
He has the capital to use larger newspaper space at
the start, but his profits per cent, upon newspaper
advertisements will always be less than the profit per
cent, upon the newspaper advertisements of a local
dealer if the latter will give to the work of his advertising the direct personal attention which his
local knowledge enables him to use effectively.
Although the multiple store company can employ expensive advertising- assistance there is every
reason why the advertisements of the local store
keeper should he better; and in point of fact the
newspaper advertising done by multiple store companies is generaly both wasteful and inadequate.
It must necessarily lack the benefit of local knowledge, town by town, such as every retailer has at his
disposal. " '** ���t,$_raft)

1911 to receive Un- trophy, hut failed,
for the .Meadow Brook team defeated
the challengers 4 1-2 to 3 and 4 1-2 to

considered the strongest that ever
left Kngland on a polo expedition, con
sistiug as i: did of Captains Cheape.
Lloyd, Williams and A. N. Kdwards.
Th.' series of last year, which alsn
resulted in a victory for America, was
fully as dose and exciting us the
games as 1911. The scores wire 5 1-2
to 3 and 1 1-2 t.i 4 1-4. The second
game was in doubt until the lasl sec-
end ui play. As was lhe case in the
1909 and the 1911 matches, the Hig
Four team  wi re th,. ih fenders, but
there was a Change iu the Knglish
combination, for Captain Lockett replaced Captain Lloyd and It. (1. Kit
son took Captain Wilson's place,
A Oreat Anrrepatlon.
Tbe summary of ttiese five matches
played since 1886 indicates clearly
that the Meadow Urook team, with
Its dashing yet perfect team play and
[ability to play equally well on defence
i or offence, was fully capable of defeating the best Knglish team either at
heme or abroad. The speed of the
Ilig Four is shown as n fact that
once tbey started playing as the I'nited states representatives, the Knglish
fours were unable to win a single
game, out of six played In 1909-11-13.
Taking the scores from the initial
game in 1886, Knglish has won two
sern-s. four games and reached a total cf 34 3-4 goals, while the United
Stales teams have won three BSrles,
seven games and scored 30 points.
Conditions cannot be said to be
over favorable for the retention cf
the trophy this year, however, since
the Knglish teams have been Improving both in playing strength and tactics during the past few seasons, and
the 1H14 combinations will be opposed
by a cup defending team which is admittedly weaker than the I'nited
States teams of the last three series.
While the Waterbury brothers and
Mllburn will again be ln the saddle,
tbe absence of Captain Whitney will
undoubtedly weaken the four both defensively nnd offensively, regardless
of the player chosen to replace the
former   leader.     It   is  considered   ex

Clifton House, Niagara Kails. Ont...
June 7. Senor Rodrlgues, the aged
and able lawyer and senior member
of tbe trio Of Mexican delegates, hail curious habit of scrutinizing tii-
bulletins that occasionally are posted
in t'ne rotunda, of the Clifton house.
He cannot see very well, nor does he
read English readllj Bui the mind
of this old man is keen and he watches
carefully the phrasing of such state
incuts as be and the other diplomat.--'
have authorised.
So nearsighted is Rodriguez that
he gets his face tight up to the bulletin and rubs his nose across the
paper. Gradually the message, written iii Knglish. penetrates his senses!
:ui,l   lie   moves  away.     Turning   down
the stairs, be feels bis way carefullyi
along to the bar-room, where be seats'
himself at a table and orders ly-al rye
and water.
Although he visits the bar not more
than  three  times a day, the  order  is j
never changed.    Why he does not go;
out on tlie balcony and order an icecream soda,  Rodriguez does not  take ,
pains   to   explain.     He  simply   knows
what he wants, when he wants it. and
thai it must have a kick in it."
Senor Itabasa is tall and lias long
thin legs. Therefore he can get to
the bar room must faster than Rodriguez, .lust al the moment the
newspaper men think they have got
him, his coat tails vanish around the
corner, on his way down for a con-
rerence with the wine clerk.

i  man   who owns six  hundred  thousand  acres of land, and   lias  a   si. ing
;. : ,i thousand peons.
Contemplation of tin- proposed land
law, hy v.v.ich the peons may be
manclpnted and part of tin- old old
[arm sold, is loo much for him in hot
weather, so be goes into consultation
���a Ith tii*' wine clerk.
(in 'lie rare occasions when K!
Guero seeks solace in the bar, he
thinks that he reall) needs a bracer
and calls for Canadian Club, and
tbe raw stuff does very well with a
little water. Let no bartender dare
to si|iiirt hot pepper juice or other extraneous decoctions into Senor Kl
<::. :n's glass. He may decline to use
. veu the water in future, if the anal-
yis! continues to issue alarmist reports about bugs and things in the
ocal supply.
Are   Able   Diplomats.
Men at mediation conference gather various impressions of one another,
but the estimate of the Mexicans is
always favorable. Their moderation
and self-control is conceded, and in
their domestic circle they are di v< ted,
courteous and attentive.
In diplomacy they have excellei . II
lis   probable   that   they   have   won   a
signal   victory'   at i the    conference
Representing   Huerta,  they   seem    t'>
j have helped  pave the waj   ior peace
without submitting to the (Ionian   s ol
President   Wilson  that  the  pres denl
de facto must go.
"They   have   saved    ll;i"i'ta's   fife."
I said a student of Mexican affairs,
"and will nuke Huerta himself an
instrument   in   bringing   about   Mexi-
! can reconstruction."
To understand how Huerta may
assist in reorganization, one must recall how he became President When
Madero  and   his vice-president    were
! slain, De l>:i Barra, secretary of foreign affairs, became interim president.
When he resigned, Hue: in, minister
of the interior, by the constitution, be-
cann  president.
To conform  with the requirements
if  the   Mexican  constitution,   Huerta
i will be asked to name five provisional
I ministers,  one of  whom   will   be  fi
ei;.n  secretary.    Then  Huerta.  bj   con
sent, ��iii resign, and the foreign secretary becomes president
After fi-iiiueiit exchanges wilh
Washington, ij is believed t.i.it Preal
dent Wilson, for the sake of peace,
has backed down in bis demand that
Huerta must he summarily dispensed
with. It was pointed out that ninny
thousands of Mexicans believed him
to be constitutionally elected Why
IK t. suggested  the  Mexican  delegates,
secure  peace    without    antagonising
these people? And President Wilson.
after thinking it over, wired. "Why
The final problem is to conciliate
tiie Constitutionalists, If they are
patriots and not bandits, t'uey will
accept the provisional government of
impartial men. pending a fair and
square electiou. If not, then immediate recognition of tbe new gmern
nu lit by the United States and an
embargo on all sources of supplies to
the rebels will soon crush them by I
starvation or dynamic force.
But this is but COUjceture after all.

of the basis of proposed settlement
was submitted to t'ne mediators last ,
night, tiieir only comment was: "Qen-j

Summer Advertising
The most valuable asset in advertising is age. It is something which cannot be rushed or bunched. It has no
overnight competition.   The new advertiser can't date
Advertising cannot take a vacation without a loss.
The cumulated values of previous months or years im-
mediately begin to shrink or evaporate. It will invariably
cost more to make good the shrinkage than to omit the
Good advertising is a continuous performance before
the same audience. No better definition was ever invented.   It admits of no exceptions or variations.
Buyers are not so firmly attached to buying traditions during the Summer months as at other seasons.
They go about more, enjoy more freedom, are interested more in variety. The new advertiser finds it
easier to break in; the old advertiser finds it necessary
to be more persistent and watchful. The province of
advertising is to attract new customers, as well as to
hold old ones, and the vacation season, more than any
other, is the season of changes; the season, more than
any other, when the advertiser can least afford to
permit his goods and his service to be forgotten. The
trifling purchase of July or August is often the forerunner of a much larger purchase in October or
