group of newspaper correspondents the other day, Presi
dent Woodrow Wilson of the United States took deliberate care to urge that the element of hysteria in press reports and comments be eliminated from all discussion of
the question and that all pains be taken to avoid rousing
the feeling of the nation into a popular demand for war.
It may be assumed that President Wilson has not neglected to place himself in possession of all available information with regard to Mexico. It is certain that he has
first hand reports on the situation from every angle and,
knowing what he does, his advice to the newspaper men
was a veiled warning that the last thing the United States
should hope for in the present crisis is war.
The head of the American nation is in a position to
know that a conflict with Mexico, while capable of having
only one possible outcome, would during its existence call
for enormous sacrifices of life and money on the part of
the American people, sacrifices with which hysterical
jingoists neglect to reckon when they attempt to fan the
embers of popular feeling into the red flames of battle.
His actions since assuming the executive position at
Washington have stamped Woodrow Wilson as a conscientious man and as such he must take into account the other
elements in the situation which raise the question above
the level of a possible conflict between a world power and
a weak and divided nation.
President Wilson cannot overlook the fact which undoubtedly has been brought to his attention, that there is
no man more heartily hated throughout the length and
breadth of Mexico than the American. Why such is the
case, those Americans in Mexico probably best can tell, but
nevertheless it is so. Common feeling against their powerful neighbor, if nothing else, would urge all Mexican
factions to unite against the Stars and Stripes. The atrocities which have characterized the campaign between
Huerta and Villa would be perpetrated with added zest of
hatred against the United States soldiers.
The fact that there is no stable government in Mexico
would render an American campaign on Mexican territory
more difficult. It would mean guerilla warfare from the
opening gun, the worst kind of guerilla warfare, and while
the capitulation of the supposed leaders might be comparatively easy to obtain under actual force of arms, the
millions of common people who have grown up with a
steadfast hatred of everything American would nurse that
vendetta with the undying tenacity of their combined Latin and Indian blood.
Certainly, in his efforts to avoid war, President Wilson is following the dictates of his conscience and it is a
pity his humanitarian request for the assistance of the
American press in this crisis of his administration has not
received the whole-hearted response which it deserved
to take charge after the Easter vacation. Mr. Cameron claimed that it
was "their just rich's'' that they
I were paying school taxes and desired
some compensation.
The chairman  Informed  them   ���tat

the couple completed the circle of the ,

between the surface of the punching
and the hardpan. There might have
been a small ditch there originally.
The drainage seemed to be from
south to north.
Mr.   McQuarrie contended  Unit  the
read  was never a municipal road in
the proper sense and he would prove
that it had been constructed by land
owners in Langley for their own con- '
venjence and that it was really a trail ,
or short cut, and that It  was reason  i
ably   sufficient   for  the   purposes  In- |
tended, and that with care  the acei- 1
de"* should not have occurred. '
George Lawrence, a farmer, swore !
to making the road 25 years ago. with
other people, to get their goods to
their homes, None of them were
paid for it. There was very little
traffic on the road as there were no
people living In that part of Surrey
now. the farms having been abandoned, lie received no authority
from Surrey to make the road. He
went   over  it   in   the   middle  of  last
December and had no trouble. Theru
was no water over the punching, but
there was water on both sides.
Robert Grant deposed to using the
road about once a month, sometimes
with a loaded wagon. He never had
any trouble.
Alexander Muroliison. a farmer.
Councillor Hebron ard Constable
Matl'.eson, Cloverdale. gave similar
K*eve Sullivan said he had beenr
reeve for five years and had been on
tbe council for three years previous,
and had never heard complaints about
the road. The clearance between iho
punching and th'e hardpan was about
10 inches. He had gone over the road
at tlie scene of the accident, with a
heavy motor car and found the rop��1
rough, but passable. If reasonable
care had been exercised there should
have been no accident. In January
last and Easter Monday the punching
was not covered with water.
L. J. Carncross. municipal clerk, in
his exam'nation admitted that he had
found $202.20 charged against Jericho
road In the civic records.
Plaintiff on being recalled, said in
reply to the court, that his companion
in the mishap had gone to Okanagan
and he had not got his address.

The average temperature for six months of the year, front April to October, is
7; degrees; the climate is most healthful, delightful, and
Invigorating,  and  there  is an  ample  rainfall of  51   inches
per year.

Prince Kdward Islanders Have Gone
In For Persian Lamb Kur.
Canada's fur-raising province���
that is certainly Prince Edward Island���is now going in for Karakule
stock, and this seems likely to prove
a most lucrative phase of tbe industry.
On a farm near Charlottetown,
there is a herd of eleven pure-bred
Karakule sheep which were brought
over from the desert of Kokhara to
this country some little time ago.
These animals are used in their
native country to produce Persian
lamb, Astrachan, Krimmer, and
Broadtail, or baby lamb fur. These
different kinds of fur come from the
offspring of the Karakule sheep, the
very best Persian lamb fur being secured from the young animal as soon
after birth as possible.
More recently a shipment of 3CIO
Lincoln sheep were sent to Prince
Edward Island. These will be used
to cross with tbe thoroughbred karakule stock, and it is expected that
pelts will be supplied to the London
market shortly.
Government tests in the United
States, where the first herd of these
foreign sheep were brought in 1908
by Dr. C. C. Young, the eminent Russian experimentalist, with the cooperation of ex-President Theodore
Roosevelt, show that Karakule sheep

the impression made by advertising in a morning newspaper Is stronger than that made by advertiBing which is "glanced at" after a tiring
and an enthusiasm-capping day.
As you begin th" day, you want to be up to date in your knowledge of what's going on in the world���bo you read your morning paper NECESSARILY. As you begin the day, If the day's routine calls
for some buying of goods, or chattels, you want knowledge of the latest offers and proffers made by the stores - so again you turn to your
morning paper.    Kur it is TODAY'S PAPER.
As p-ople want the laBt fact, the latest developments, in news,
so they do In advertising. Assuming that a woman intends to purchase certain things, and plans to go to the store some time during
the day, it is natural that Bhe should want to know what tbe stores
offer in relation to the immediate buying opportunists she seeks.
So she will read the ads in her morning paper���for that is the laBt
paper she will read before going shopping.
THE MORNING PAPER'S advertisements supply shoppers with
the information they seek and act upon In the day's buying.
Is a rested mind not easier to impress, more apt to consider an
offer or a selling argument, than a TIRED MIND?
The morning finds the rested mind the evening the tired mind.
AdvertiBing in n good morning paper is INTERESTING because the
reader is alert and interested in his own interests���not tired, blue
ami bored.
A good morning newspaper is an influence   not a mere incident���
in the dally lives of people.
The advertising in its columns shares in that influence -is a part

the knowledge that every line In the paper will be read���not every line

One of the large items of expense In the making of a dependable
morning newspaper Is the obtaining and V Kit IKY ING OF PACTS in
connection with the news. Facts are sometimes hard to get- sometimes they c.ist a great deal of money. Always, in the making of a
real newspaper THKY MUST BE OBTAINED, at whatever cost of
effort or expense. Conjectures as to the factB and detalla in such news
events as accidents and disasters is a serious shortcoming In a newspaper,  involving  perhaps needless anxiety  for hundreds of people.
The readers of a newspaper to whom a news event has any special
interest will always want to know the actual facts and details. And
Is It not your experience that, in most cases, these muBt be found In
a morning newspaper? The advertising in a morning newspaper as a
matter of course- receives corresponding consideration.

Geneva, Switzerland. April 21.���A
strange military-civil lawsuit, which
could not have taken place in any other country than Switzerland, came
to a conclusion yesterday before the
civil court of St. Gall, when Private
Geiger was awarded ��12 damages
against his commanding officer, Colonel H. Stahel, while the other officers of his battalion, who were also
defendants in the case, were acquitted.
Geiger, who is the proprietor of a
cafe at Appenzell, should have served
as a private In his battalion during
the recent maneuvers nenir his town,
but somehow obtained leave. His officers, believing that he had acted
from interested motives, Issued an
order to the men to boycott Geiger's
cafe during their stay at Appenzell.
After the maneuvers the private
promptly brought a civil action against
his officers for damages as a result
of the boycott, claiming ��200 damages. The commanding officer will
have to pay the damages out of his
own pocket.
