New Westminster's lire department
passed a high test of efficiency at the
Saturday morning lire of the Brack-
nian Ker building which was reported
In The News of that day. Although
the damage ran between MO.UUU and
��� 7,0,(11111 the men under Chief Watson
deserve high commendation for their
work In preventing the flames from
destroying neighboring buildings,
| while the water pressure ably demonstrated Its value when no less than
eight streams were playing on the
conflagration at one team with a
pressure of 170 pounds.
Not since the Koyal City mill lire
of three summers ago has the department been put to such a test as
on Saturday morning and the fact
that adjoining buildings such as the
city market and Captain Mayers' coal
yard were saved speaks highly of the
work of the men of the three stations.
Throughout the day a stream of
water was played on the ruins of the
gram storage building, several hose

The three constitutionalist leaders
were plainly interested in Felix Diaz

allied himself with the present constitutionalist movement under Carranza. Gomez left Mexico after the
accession of Huerta to power and has

Montreal, May 31. -The collier
Storstad, which rammed the Empress
of Ireland In the St. 1-awre.nce near
Father Point, Friday morning, reached here this afternoon under her own
steam. Contrary to the stories received regarding her condition, she
was very slightly damaged. Her stem
was bent back for over a dozen feet
above the water line and she stood
up straight. She has about 11,000
tons of coal on board.
Only a few officials were allowed
to board her When the vessel tied
up, a writ issued by the Canadian
Pacific railway, claiming $2,000,000
in the Quebec admiralty court, was
served on Captain Anderson and the
Captain  AnderBon  said    he    could
make no statement as the official of
the    Dominion    Coal    company,    the
charterer of the boat,  had  arranged
to do that.    It  was  said  by  seamen,
although   they   had   been   warned   by
| their officers not  to talk  to newspa-
I per men, that Captain Anderson was
I off duty at the time of the accident
and  that  the ship had  been  ordered
astern  before it struck the  Empress
a glancing blow.
curious and morbid. Within stretched three long tables covered with
white and hung with black. On these
the   coffins   were   reverently   laid   as
they were brought In on the shoulders of the bluejackets who acted as
pa,i bearers.   The Lady Orey brought
up   170   bodies.     Many   of  the   coffins
contained valuables that had been
found on the (lead, and Jewelry still
gleamed on the waxen lingers, wrists
and throats.
Identification Slow.
At first only a few lids were raised,
and Identification was slow, the members of the  Salvation   Armv  and  one
ur two others being Ihe only persons
to meet with any success In recognizing  their  dead.     Hut  shortly   before
noon there was a  general opening of
the coffins and lt was then that thai
mot-t poignant grief was witnessed,     i
In the throng that had gathered for
the   purpose     of   Identification   there
wi re men and women from every part;
ut the globe, gathered together on the
reliance  of   gazing   for   the   last   time |
mi the dear, dead face of those whom I
they had loved and lost.
Many there were who were torn between the desire lo find those whom
they mourned and a dread lest the
features should be marred or unlove
Ij   oi   beyond   recognition  iu  death.
Grouped at one end of the second
table were two dozen little white
caskets within which the babies were
laid. They, at any rate, appeared to

with a kodak. Miss Oray with a hand-
some cut glass perfume bottle, while
Miss Scadding, niglii matron, received
a beautiful cut glass flower vase. In
responding to the gift Miss Scott expressed regret at her departure from
associations dear to her but reminded tiie nurses that the change of su-

Ottawa. May 31.���The Inquiry into
the disaster of the Empress of Ire-
laud will be conducted by a joint
commission, representatives of the
Dominion government and the British
board of trade. On Saturday afternoon the government received a cable
frtm lion. John Burns, president of
of the Hrltish board of trade, asking
that any investigation should be jointly conducted, as it was the desire
of the Iiritish board of trade to cooperate with the Canadian authorities. Tbe suggestion was at once acceded to by the government
On Sunday a second message was
received, stating that Mr. George

the representative of the board of

department of justice will also name

week, it had been decided to have
Captain Lindsay, former wreck commissioner, but now superintendent of
St. Lawrence pilots, conduct a preliminary investigation whicli will be
opened at Montreal Monday. The object of this Inquiry Will be to get the
declarations of the survivors before
they leave for their homes, the evidence taken to be made use of when

Once again the world has been shocked into realiza-
tion of the fact that man has not yet solved the problem
of safe navigation and, at the cost of the loss of hundreds
of lives, it has been demonstrated that the greatest of the
ocean carriers are not immune from the casual dangers
of the deep.
No contrivance or system dependent on the human

It is too soon yet to place responsibility for the wreck
of the Empress of Ireland, but the early verdict of public
opinion and high authority points to the captain of the
Storstad as the culpable person. If mature deliberation
and investigation bear out this view it will prove only one
thing, viz., that, no matter how careful the navigators of
one ship may be, their vessel is at the mercy of the carelessness and foolhardiness of every irresponsible commander sailing the same seas.

How   Accident   Happened.
Captain  Kendall,  who stuck  to  the

in saving a boatload of drowning persons from tho wreck, took up his Btory

have done that, as a seaman should i
have known that."
"There   was  wind?"
"It  was quite  still."

to him to stand by, 1 did not hear
any explosion, but when a ship goes

"How many boats were there on
the Empress?"
"Between I'aiity and forty. There!
were boats for everybody. She had
boats for over 2000 people. There
was no panic. I had full control of
the crew and they fought to the did.
There was no panic among the passengers or cn w. Everybody behaved
splendidly. About four boats were
launched; these were the four of
which 1 loosened the gripes. As the
ship sank, and lie water rose, these
boats floated away. Tbe people who
were saved were saved by the Empress'  boats and  by  the  wreckage.
"The Storstad had three or four ot
his boats and he pulled around and
took   people   off   the   wreckage.      Ik

The story op< ns in Frederick's youth.
Frederick William, his father, wan a
rough, burly man. fond of outdoor
sport, a hearty eater and a heavy
drinker. Because bis son was frail
and delicate and more interested In
Intellectual matters than in sport
and hearty living, Frederick William
bated him. lie forced Frederick to
drink and smoke, and on one occasion
when the boy defied him on the subject, ol a favorite flute, attempted to
strangle hia son With a window cord.
From these Joyless days we shift to
the tragic death of the old king, has-
ti ucd  by  the  receipt of an  lusultlng
message from ihe Austrian emperor.
With Iiis dying breath, Frederick
William besought his son to avengo

D.  D. WILSON, Manaoer.
Wasliiiigte.il.      May     31.-   President
Wilson announced today to the cabinet that Oeneral Carranza had ad-
dressed a note to the mediators asking for representation. It later was
declared that the administration took
the view that the constitutionalist
chief should not bo ignored.
While tin' cabinet was in session
word came from Niagara Falls tbat
there was doubt whether Juan Ur-
iinisi, agent lor Cairanv.a, would be'
received by the Soutb American mediators, Later it was learned the administration had directed the American representatives at the peace con-'
ference to urge the messenger from
Carranza be received.
Will   Receive   Communication.
Word came late today that the mediators  had   agreed   to   receive  Carranza's   communication,   government
officials expressing the opinion that:
I this important development  would ul-
KN ���''"'"��� timately  lead  to participation by  the
i constitutionalists   In   the   mediation
Representatives   of   Carranza   here
' were in long distance communication
I with Mr. Urquldi throughout the day
and it was announced that the note
i would not be mad" public until the
mediators  had   passed   upon   Its   con-
i tents and prepared a reply,
With ielation to tho German shipments of arms it developed that the
United states nay be called upon to
pay compensation for delay in delivery of the Yplranga's cargo, originally
consign d to Vera Cni7, but held on
board on account of the American occupation of  that port.
it became known thai negotiations
are in progress between French and
German concerns which sold Huerta
the consignments i t cannon, machine
guns and ammunition and the shipping
company, to determine which, if any
of them, Is financially liable to Huerta
under the contract of --ale and ship-
mi nt for delay in landing the supplies.
'Any claims again:-- them on this ac-
I count, it was reported, will lie presented to tho United States government in
due course.
U. S. Will  Pay  Damaqes.
The   American   government   is   understood already to have intimated to
, tin- governments concerned its willingness to deal with the c,uestion and
even suggested its Willingness tO relieve the shippers of financial loss
by paying hard cash for the war cargoes ii the consignors should land
j them at Vera Cruz.
Oeneral CaTranza's offer to Battle
with the Spanish owners of some $20,-
null,nun worth of cotton confiscated at
Torreon and vicinity, cleared away a
difficult diplomatic problem.

'��� ed as "untold" if only the fruit could
be  sent  to  market,  but  the  railroads
were   unreasonable   and   tbe  express

on   the   ground   because   the   markets

For Prevention of Disease
By Natural Means
NEARLY all forms of disease are traceable
lo sanitary ignorance and an imperfect
action of the liver.
Eating between meals is a frequent cause of indigestion and intestinal disorders, because introducing
a fresh mass of food into the mass already partly dissolved
arrests the healthy action of the stomach and causes the food
first received to lie until incipient fermentation takes place.
The liver, unlike the stomach, is constantly secreting, and when
too much carbonaceous food has been taken, the bile becomes
too thick and consequently unable to perforin its office. Every
intelligent person, who appreciate the inestimable value of
good health, should read the "Rules of Life" set forth in the
booklet enclosed in every package of
By strict adherence to these rules, e.ven those of impaired constitution have been made healthy and comparatively robust. Eno's "Fruit
Salt" ii; a health-giving, cooling and invigorating beverage, which should

lt would seem in fact that tii is summer wil be remarkable from the tourist point of view by reason of the unusually large numbers of Australians
and New Zealanders visiting -London.
A succession of very prosperous years
has enabled a great many home-born
settlers and natives of these dominions to visit the old country, in spite
of the cost of the long voyage. From

good many arrivals by recent steamers.

���London, May 31,���A railway acci-
Jent was averted on the Great Northern railway, near Retford station, yesterday afternoon by a fortunate circumstance, The signals were off for
the Leeds-London express, showing
"line clear," the train then being
.ibout tarce miles away from Retford,
when 11 youth named Hirst, a wagon
greaser on the Oreat Central railway,
while passing the crossing south of
the station noticed that a portion of
the main line rail was broken and out
of place. The youth went straight to
the signal box and informed the signalman, who threw the signals to danger, and the train was pulled up before reaching the danger spot.
There can be no doubt that but for
the youth's promptitude a disaster
must have followed. Traffic was conducted on a single line, and a gang
of men set to work to replace the
broken rail, this taking several hours.
It results from this that a man who keeps the best
store, because he knows how to keep the best store, will
do the best advertising. This is quite as it should be.
The advertised store requires to be the best store. I have
previously said in these articles that the most important
requisite in order to make a profit by advertising the
store is to keep a good store. If customers cannot be kept,
or brought back again, by the goods in the store, and the
way in which the goods are sold, neither advertising nor
anything else will extend, or even maintain, the business.
There are times, however, when prices must be the
best of a retailer's advertisements. Perhaps there is a depreciation in general prosperity. That is not the time to
reduce one's advertising. The more difficult trade is to
get, the more necessary it is to use all endeavors to get
what trade there is, but as such times prices leap into importance as a factor of the advertiser's appeal. He is not
merely trying to cut the throats of his competitors. He
is meeting an economic demand of the time and particularly with staple commodities���things that have to be
consumed as necessities, week by week���economy is a
very powerful appeal to the purchasing public. Where a
reduction is temporary, it is very desirable to offer some
reason for it.
An honest, straightforward appeal to the thrift and
good sense of buyers creates confidence and does more to
attract and hold business than any other methods that can
be employed. T
