that the German steamship Kron

It is significant at a time when the American govern

tors for a settlement of the Mexican problem that a reso-1 ��,,,,��� iBSUed

authorizing the president to increase the standing army!cial st3ti8tlcal in*�����atl��**
above the statutory limitation of one hundred thousand
men on the ground that at any moment the country may
need the "fullest and most effective use of the regular
army of the United States."
Such a move can have only one meaning���that the
American government places but the smallest confidence
in the ability of the A B C mediators to accomplish anything.
Were Uncle Sam dealing with a civilized country, the
situation would be different, but should Huerta see inevitable ruin in sight there is no telling to what length
his savage instincts might carry him in retaliating on
Americans in Mexico for the refusal of the American government to recognize his authority as president of the republic. Washington knows that Huerta cannot be trusted.
While the dictator outwardly agrees to mediation he would
not hesitate a moment to renew hostilities if he thought
there was anything to be gained thereby and therein lies
the necessity to have large forces ready at a moment's notice to invade Mexico and rescue foreigners in the event;   ....   ,.        ., .,.    ,  ., ,,   _

Very slight alteration in the quality of the goods
will do incalculable damage to an advertiser because
of the large interests he has at stake.   I know of a
case in which the distributor of a trade marked article  imported  from   the   II. S. found that something had gone wrong with the goods, and as there
was a brisk demand so that he could not afford to
���stop the sale while he wired for better stock from
the other side of the line, he went to work to try to
bring the article up to standard by mixing into it an
ingredient of a vastly superior quality.  He produced
by this means a really better article than he had
been selling.   The flavor of it happened to be a little
different, and although a comparatively small quantity of it was put on the market in its altered state,
it cost him many thousands of dollars to recover
the loss of trade he experienced through the temporary change and had to call in, as far as he wasj
able, everything he had issued during the period of
There are many article of staple consumption-���
articles which every drygoods house, chemist and
provision dealer handles���in which the competition
of producers has led to conisderable deterioration of
quality. But in nearly all of these lines there have
been one or two manufacturers who have declined
to be the purveyors of deteriorated goods, sold in
competition to domestic and foreign produce, and
have instead preferred to register a trade mark for
their own goods and to advertise them by that trade
Their advertising ahs educated the public to demand good quality in the commodity.
I have previously pointed out in these articles
that it is not good to advertise a store unless it is a
good one.   The owner would much better spend a
little money on making it good before beginning to
advertise.   When he has done that���when he hp<=
made his store as good as it can be made-he can
advertise it fearlessly and the business he gets will
pay back his expense.   Neither is it alone in the way
he keeps his store but the act of advertising educates
and stimulates the store-keeper.   It also gives him a
more active interest in his business.   He is not content with sitting still with the door open to wait for
people to come for just what they may happen to
need.   If he advertises at all ably he tries to bring
people to the store wanting a specific thing.   He
lets the people of the town know what he has to sell
by offering something fresh every week, taking care
(because he must take care, and he knows he must
take care) to have the best that the market can offer.
His advertising improves his store and improves
the things that he sells in it.   No doubt he attributes
thee improvements to his own energy and resourcefulness and quite right, too.   But the force which
stimulates his energy and resourcefulness is the ad-

Headed by Reeve Sullivan, a deputation representing Surrey municipality visited Victoria on Thursday
where they interviewed the attorney-
general in respect to the straightening of the Johnston road. The municipality desires to improve the highway but several of the fanners have

Port Coquitlam   Meets Victoria Tean
This Afternoon���Strenuous Game
The soccer battle of the season will
b>' staged at Port Coquitlam this afternoon when the North Wards of Victoria clash with Coquitlam iu the first
of home and home games for posses-
sion of tbe Mcllride shield and the
���ocoer title of the province. Everything points to a bumper crowd and a
close contest with the chances slightly favoring the visitors.
Recent games indulged Iu by Coquitlam have plainly shown a stateness
which might be overcome and which
might be Offset by tin- fact that the
Capitals bave not been playing for the
past two weeks.
Reports Indicate the Wards having
a brilliant forward line, hut a weak
defence. This should be counterbalanced by the splendid defence trio
wearing the orange anil black. Messrs.
Worrall, Marshall and Miller, while
the forward line of the railway men
is not to in' despised. Harrop, however, will In' missing, tin- injuries he
received last Saturday not permitting
him to resume playing until nexl season.
The second game of the series will
be played in Victoria on Saturday
next, total goals in both games deciding tin'  winner
The Coquitlam line-up will be as
follows: Worrall. Marshall, Miller,
Millard. Thorpe, MoLellan, Klhln,
Thompson, Muck. Johnson and McKenzie,
prospects merely shrugging his shoulders when asked for an opinion on
the outlook.
Milton Oppenheiiner's eleventh hour |
wail  painting  a  gloomy    picture    of l
what's really doing ln thi' profession il j
game, was to be expected.   The would-1
be Vancouver promoter, who appears |
to lack every essential in the way of
organization, informed thi' Westminster players some four weeks ago that
lacrosse was ln for a banner year and
that good salaries would be obtained
by  the playerB.    The  Royals  fell  for
thi" stuff, turning a deaf ear to a proposition from the former leader of the
green shirts.
Perhaps it might now be a good
idea for the Vancouver Athletics to
go into liquidation, wind up all affairs
und let somebody take a hand who
knows bow.

stamps him as one of the strong men

to all Hrltish Columbians.   It may be
in  order,  though,   to  note  with   what j

in July of that year Mr Turner arrived in Victoria by the steamei Ore
con In company with a large number
of goldseekers, many of whom disappointed and discouraged, left the
country within a month of their landing. A few, however, with more of
the Indomitable energy and presever-
ance so necessary to the citizens of 0
VOUPg   state,   settled   in   Victoria,   Mr.
Turner   wenl   into   business   hero   in
1865.    As   in  Charlottetown,  he   was

Huerta a Strong Man,
Is Fyfe's Opinion
Says    Mexican    Dictator   Could    Not
Have Held Out So Long Had He
Eeen a Weakling.
l.'nder   the   caption.   "'The   Man
Hlood,"   II.   Hamilton  Fyfe   writes
follows of  President  Huerta of  .Mexico in  the  New   York  Kvening  Post: . ., , ,
Whether Huerta be a bloody-handed | w"ul<J "J* have retired so quietly Into
l.urini's again, and was on the point
of becoming a partner in same in irbUf
iiuar.ies when the failure of other
leadern to defeat Orozco's rebellion iu
the north forced Madero to call upon
him  for aid.
I have laid stress upon his busing*
enterprises. In cause they show that
Huerta was not, as his enemies declare, u man consumed by ambition
for power.    Had  he  been    that,    he
tyrant or a patriotic soldier may be
left to the future historian. The fact
remains that the Indian ruler whose
personality provoked the president ol
the United States to abandon watchful waiting for force is a strong man;
otherwise he would have been assassinated like Madero, executed like
Maxmllian, or banished like lturbide
or Diaz. What manner of man Is he?
The answer is altogether a matter of
environment. A hero, a statesman,
say the Mexican newspaper subject
to bis censorship; too brusque for a
diplomat, too honest for a politician,
and tender hearted, save In war. An
assassin,   say   the  American   newspa-
private life. What he sought was
money, rather than power. It Ib avarice, many think, rather than ambition,
which has made him cling to office
with so desperate a grasp.
Before he agreed to take command'
against Orozco he made certain demands for war materials. These were
at first refused, but he persisted, said
Madero's government gave way. His
campaign was a triumphant bucchkh.
There, was not much fighting, but
t'apt. llurnslde, the United States military attache, who accompanied the
federal forces, caine back with a high
opinion of lluerta's organising capacity.     Vet   a   third   time   .Madero  dis-

During the fighting in the capital he
commanded the ftderal troops, but he
saw from the first how hopeless Madero's position was. lt has been
charged against him that his conduct
orgies, and who has provoked armed
conflct that he may escape from an
impossible situation to spend the public treasure he has plundered In Ku-1
rope. Somewhere between these estimates lies the truth. It is certain
that Madero was slain while in power
and H. Hamilton Fyfe, whose estimate
of Huerta follows, ls content, after
careful Investigation, to return the
Scotch verdict, "not proven."
Through the crowded chamber of
deputies on the afternoon of November 20, 1913, the date of the opening of
the new Mexican congress, there stepped lightly, with hand upraised to
acknowledge the cheers which greeted I
him, a tall, thickly built soldier, whose '
briskness  belied  hl3  GS��  years.
He wore evening dress, as did all
the members of parliament. The only
distinction which set him apart from
the reBt was a broad sash of the Mex-
was "disloyal" to one who had trusted
him and loaded him with benefits. As
the foregoing relation proves, Madero
only used him when lt was necessary,
and twice flung him aside when he
had geeompllshed his task. Had the
issue of events been different, he
would no doubt have been cold-shouldered again. Huerta Baw that tbe
people of Mexico City were now as
wildly enthusiastic for Gen. Felix
Diaz as they had once been for Madero. Another wave of sentiment bad
engulfed them. He saw that Madero
had become Impossible. He was appealed  to by  senators, deputies, for
eign residents,    and,    with    especial

for form. He much prefers living in
a small suburban bungalow to wandering through the vast hulls and saloons of his official residence. He
would rathter Bit with a few friends
In a cafe than entertain high society
at formal dinner parties. When he
comes across a knot he cuts it. To
untie it would take too long. When
a few plain words are sufficient to
express his meaning he finds circumlocution tedious. A Btory Is told of

President ls said to have answered;
"but put lt in diplomatic language,' he
added soothingly, when he saw the
look of dismay on the unfortunate
minister's face. The tale may not be
literally true, but it Is typical of the
man. The methods of the barrack-
room in the council chamber���to that
incongruity are attributable both his
weakness and his strength.
Under Diaz and Madero
The virulence of the Zapata rebellion in Morelos. where the land grievances of the Indians were especially
acute, caused his recall to active ser

dealing with the Zapatista bandits,
and would have annihilated them but
for Madero's mysterious intervention.

events, Huerta was recalled and once
more placed on half pay.   Ho took up

then counted upon being elected president himself. As a rule, he ooSHetf
in nobody. Even his ministers are
kept in ignorance of what his neit
move is to be. He summons then:

of the morning, and tells them what
they are to do. If they argue, tbey
are dismissed. Senor Garza Aldaptt
