At the monthly meeting of the council   last   evening Mr.   Lewis  and   the

Washington, April 24. -While the
attention of the American govern
ment for the most part today was
concentrated on restoring order at
Vera Cruz and expediting the departure of Americans from all parts of
Mexico, a watchful eye was trained
on the transcontinental boundary between Mexico and the United States
for signs of hostility from constitutionalists.
President Wilson and hiH cabinet
had a long conference, after which
optmism was apparent both In their
demeanor and Informal discussion of
the  situation.
There   was   no   particular   development   to   which   the   feeling  of  hope-
fuiiiess that real war would be averted could be traced, but Qeneral Villa's   friendly  announcement,  il    was
admitted, had  Impressed  many offl-
cials   here   with   the   possibility   that
the   constitutionalists   would   remain
neutral   while  the   American   government  sought  reparation  from Huerta.
Other officials    were    not  so    sanguine und the army  moved with precision  to protect  the American  boundary and reinforce the expeditionary
forces nl' marines and  bluejackets at
Vera Cruz.   Conferences at the state
department  between  Secretary  Bryan
ami   representatvies  of  the  Mexican
constitutionalists resulted in the despatch   to   Qeneral   Carranza   advising
liiiii   to  remain  neutral   and  assuring
him   mat  the   American  government
Intended to withdraw its
Mexico   just   as   toon   as
reparation had bean mad
fense committed by Huerta,   The ad- j
vice given Carranza here was that by I
assuming a  hostile attitude he  would
draw  all  Mexico into a  war,   Huerta
would  be perpetrated  and ihe constitutionalists   cause   lost   in  the   melee.
Mediation   Proposed.
Four countries, among them France
mil   Spain,   came   forward   with     inquiries   to   the   i'nited   States   about
possible means of mediation  between
the Huerta government and the liiit-
cd   Stales,  but Secretary   Hryan   said
these  advices could   not   be described
as  "overtures,"  and   be  was  inclined

Washington,    April    24- Rear  Ad-
| miral  Fletcher reported  to the  navy
repartment late tonight that a special
j train  from  Mexico City  bearing Nelson O'Shaughnessy and other Amerl-
I cans had arrived at a point five miles
j from Vera Cruz where the track was
: torn up.    A train from Vera Cruz to
I meet the charge had reached the break
I in the tracks.
The admiral also reported that a rumor had reached Mexico City that
Mexicans were being detain, d at Vera
Cruz and that as a result fieneral
Huerta had ordered that no more Americans be permitted to leave the
Mexican capital.
Under date of 6:.10 p.m. today Hear
Admiral Fletcher at Vera Cruz reported to the navy department as follows:

May Execute Four.
The belief that the iederals intended to execute at least four of the
prisoners was gained from the conversation of the soldiers who captured
them, which was heard by passengers
on the train. The prisoners were
taken to Cordoba and It Is believed
later were transferred to Orizaba, a
point nearer the capital.
An Indirect report received here to
day from Mexico City said a mob attempted to burn the terminal of the
Mexican railway, but was prevented by
President  lluerta's  troops.

town opposite here, was In ruins tonight, devastated by dynamite and
fire by Mexican federal soldiers, who
late today began an orgy of destruction, which did not end until they
were forced to flee before the guns
of the  American  border patrol.
Two Mexicans are known to have
been killed by United States troops
and several were seen to fall when
a machine gun platoon at Fort Mcintosh got ntio action. Several brisk
skirmishes between the Americans
and the Mexicans were fought as
their troop trains, ready to pull out
of the burning town, began an indiscriminate fire across the international boundary. But tonight there was
no evidence that their shooting had
been effective.

Danger of the Match.
Take matches for instance, is it
not true that not one of ns is care
ful enough with 'he lighted match?
The silent parlor match retains a
spark of fire upon the tip, seldom visible, but capable of producing as
large a flte, If carelessly thrown
away, as a burning match. They are
fire brands, and if we -would escape
our tremendous loss by fire, one of
the first lessons learned must be the
exercise of due care with  matches.
There is only one safe rule ns��
safety matches���the kind that strike
only on the box. Do not let your fain

use anything else. Furnish them with
matches if necessary, and pay the bill
ungrudgingly; it will be one of your

made  in  a  manner decidedly  expedi
tlous for those days.
When the war between  the  United
States and  Mexico was begun In lN4<i
a blockade of the gulf ports  was or
| dered  by the navy department. Com-,
' modore Connor of the blockade fleet
j had under his command  13  warships
with 259 gunB.    The blockade was de-
I eland early in lS4,i and continued until all of the gulf ports were occupied
by  American  soldiers. i
Blockade of 1846.
The blockade was considered largely a paper "blockade," and was not
verj effective until after the capture
of Vera Cruz. The gulf storms bothered the little fleet and forced it to
seek shelter back of the island to tin-
south of Vera Cruz, making it comparatively easy for the blockade runners to enter the harbor of Vera Cfuz
by the north channel. The little fleet
lacked the strength necessary for of-
tensive operation, and its occasional
attempts to shell seaport towns
proved disastrous.
Early in 1847 Qeneral Scott con-
ceivi.d a plan of taking Vera Cruz and
opening the gateway to Mexico City
while Qeneral Taylor occupied the attention of Santa Ana at the Hio
Grande. H<- established a rendezvous
at the island of l-obos, 60 miles south
of Tamplco, and gathered there an
took the army in 80 transports to a
point near Point Anton l.lzardo, and
on the afternoon of March 9, 1S47. suc-
ceeded in landing 5500 men in ��7 surf;
boats at a point three miles south of
Vera Cruz, meeting with practically
1 no resistance from the defenders of
i Vera ,'ruz. That night he succeeded'
' In landing the entire army.
The topography of the country aided
the heseiging army in investing the
city, but at tlie same time delayed the
work Ol building intrench ments.
Winning sand storms and the danger
of contracting the deadly "vomito"
v. ere the principal enemies which the
investing army had to meet.
The city of Vera Cruz was defended
by 4,300   Mexican  soldiers,  who were
ably assisted  by as many more civilians.   Qeneral Juan Morales, the commandant of  the  Vera Cruz,  garrison,
hoped  to  be able to hold off  the attacking   army   until   the   spring  heat
brought disease and death  to the invaders or until reinforcements might
be Bent to relieve the siege.    His artillery kept up a steady  fire    on the
Americans while they were intrenching their position.    It had little effect
and failed to draw a r,turn fire from .
tlie   Americans  until   Vera  Cruz  was:
: thoroughly  invested.    On     March   IS
Bcott began the approaches to the city
by   a   line   of   trenches   cleverly   constructed  without exposing his men to
the   fire   of  the  enemy.     When    the
American   position   was   within   1,800
of war and all of his leader,* advised [
a surrender,    The obstinate general, j
however, refused, but before the day
was  over  resigned   his  command   to
Qeneral .lore Juan  Landero, who im-1
mediately opened negotiations looking
to 2 surrender. An armistice was ar-
ranged, and on March 29 the city was j
formally surrendered with nearly 4,000
prisoners of war and a large quantity
of munitions.   The American loss was I
only 11 killed and 5;i wounded, while;
the Mexican loss was 1,000 in killed
General Grant Was There.
Qeneral II. S. Grant was a young
lieutenant in Scott's army and participated in the siege of Vera Cruz. In
his memoirs he gives the following account of the capture of the city:
"The transports with troops were
assembled In the harbor of Anton, I.ls-
ardo, 16 miles south of Vera Cruz, as
they arrived, and there awaited the
remainder of the fleet bringing artillery, ammunition and supplies of all
kinds fiom the north. With the fleet
there was a little steam propellor dispatch boat���the first vessel of the
kind ever seen by any one then with
the army. At that day ocean steam-
era were rare, and what there were
were sidewheelers. This little vessel,
going through the fleet so fast, so
noiselessly and with its propellor under water out of view, attracted a
great deal of attention. I recollect
that Lieutenant Sidney Smith or the
Fourth Infantry, by whom I happened
to be standing on the deck of a vessel
when this propellor was passing, exclaimed: 'Why, the thing looks as if
It were propelled by the force of circumstances.'
Debarkation Proves Difficult.
"Finally, on the seventh of March,
1847. the little army of 10,000 or
12,000 men given Scott to invade a
country with a population of 7,000,000
or 8,000,000, a mountainous country
affording the greatest possible natural
advantages for defense, was all as-

What happened to the Farmers

be well remembered; wild Investments, false returns to the government, unscrupulous management, it,
is very doubtful if the history of private banking in Canada shows more
serioUB misdemeanors than have been

insolvent chartered  banks.
In   the   average   of   private   banks
throughout   Canada,   business   is   se- i
cured through the persona! reputation
of the president and manager, a high-
er rate of interest on deposits, and a
more  elastic   standard    for    making
loans.    A   bank  of  this  class   In   an

and they have been  lucky enough to
count   very   few   losses.     Loans   are
freely   made  on   real   estate,  and   on
farm holdings,  a  class    Of    security
which   chartered  banks scarcely  consider.    In this particular private bank
there are  no directors, us  far as  is

A record attendance In so far an.
BnfUafa lOCCer is concerned. Is to be !
exptcted at the famous Crystal '
Palace grounds, London, this after-'
noon when Liverpool and Iturnley i
meet In the final fur th(. Knglish cup.
Sectionalism plays    no    part    with
the Knglish soccer enthusiast and ul- i
though both    the   contending    teams !
hull  from    Lancashire    the    distance
from  the northern county  to London
plays   no   part   In   keeping   back   the
crowd   from   attending   the   blue   rib-,
BOO.  of the SOCCer sphere.    The  Knglish railroads pay special attention to!
catering  to  the  public  in  the  mutter;
of football games and although Liver-
pool and Burnley are over 160 miles
from   the   Urltlsh   metropolis,   special
trains will  be run  through  together
with extra accommodation from all
other sections of the country.
Today's game will be a test as to
whether the crystal    Palace   people i
have lived up to the demands of Hie
English Football association in tlie
inuttir of providing additional space
for the spectators, an ultimatum being presented In the spring of 1913
that unless a greater capacity is
fOTjnd, ihe finals In future would be
removed from the historical place,
on points of play through tin- various rounds, both teams appear equally matched. Liverpool pulled off the
big surprise In  the semillnals by de
tenting Aston Villa,   the   consistent
sup defenders, but In the various encounters leading up to tut final Hurn-
ley must DOl be forgotten as having
accounted for some of the best teams
in  the game today.

A loud wull emanated from Sapperton yesterday morning when the lineup of the City eleven was announced
in The News. The east enders claim
that the City, in order to present a
strong front, have combed tbe city
for every available player and have
not confined Itself to players signed
with Hurnaby and City during mid-
season, the two teams having amalgamated a few weeks u';o.

probable that a protest will be entered before the final In the city championship games is staged at Moody

This will be the final game of the

To save we must practice self denial.
.$10.00 actually put in the Bank today is worth
more than the $25.00 we promise ourselves we will
put there next month.
Next month will be like last month and something will turn up that we will feel we must have
and the start of the Savings Account will be as far
away as ever.
The watch-word of saving is DOJT NOW.

e "keen edge of self-interest" is keenest in the morning.   Thus
the impression made by advertising in a morning newspaper is stronger than that made by advertising which is "glanced at" after a tiring
and an enthusiasm-capping day.
Ah you begin the day, you want to be up to date in your knowledge of what's going on In the world���so you read your morning paper NECESSARILY. As you begin the day, if the day's routine calls
for Borne buying of goods, or chattels, you want knowledge of tbe latest offers and proffers made by the stores���so again you turn to your
morning paper.    Kor it Is TODAY'S PAPER.
As people want the lust 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 she should want to know what the stores
off, r In relation to the Immediate buying opportunities she seeks.
So she will read the ads in her morning pap��r- for that in the last
paper she will n-ad before going shopping.
THUS MORNING PAPER'S advertisements supply shoppers with
the information they seek und 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.
Advertising  in a good  morning  paper Is INTHRESTINQ  because the
reader  is  alert  and  interested  iu  his own  interests���not  tired,  blue
and bored.
A good morning newspaper is an influence -not a mere incident -
in the daily lives of people.
The advertising in its columns shares in that Influence is a part
of it. A morning newspaper's contents are edited and prepared with
the knowledge that every line in the paper will be read -not every line
by every reader of course. Hut every line, atls and all. will have its
One of tlie large items of expense In the making of a dependable
morning newspaper is the obtaining and VERIFYING OF FACTS in
connection with tbe news. Facts are sometimes bard to get -sometimes toy cost a great deal of money. Always, in the making of a
real newspaper THEY MUST BE OBTAINED, at whatever cost of
effort or expense. Conjectures as to the facts and details 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. Aud
is It not your experience that, in most cases, these must be found iu
a nmrning newspaper? The advertising in a morning newspaper -as a
matter of course���receives corresponding consideration.

$3500 in Six Months.
Owing to tbe large number of new-
motion picture theatres which are being opened throughout the country,
there is offered to the men ami
women of today, a new profession,
namely, that of writing moving picture plays. Producers are paying
from $25 to $150 for each scenario accepted, upon which they can build a
photo play.
$3500 In Six Months.
As it only requires a few hours'
time to construct a complete play,
you can readily see the Immense
possibilities ln this work. One man.
who gave the idea a tryout, writes
that he earned $3500 in six months.
It is possible for an intelligent person to meet with equal success.
One feature of the business which
should appeal to everyone, is the the
work may be done at home In spare
time. No literary ability is required
and women have as great as opportunity as men. ideas for jlots are
constantly turning up, and may be
put in sceneario form and sold for a
good price.

At the head office of the li. C. Electric a statement was yesterday made
concerning the reports recently circulated noting an arrangement bo-

Yietoria, April 24.���That the city is
using  four   feet  of  somebody's  property along Quadra street was disclosed in the Millington-llaiknes case decided   by   Mr.  Justice  Gregory   in   favor   of   the   plaintiffs   this   morning.
The judge  decided   that  the  original
survey  of  1S54   is  still  in   force,  and
by this survey  tlti feet was set aside
as the  width  of  Quadra street.    The
street  is  laid  out  70  feet  wide,  but j
it would  take a great deal of litigation   to  determine  whether   the   four
feet came off the east or west sides
or how much of either.    Many more
vague  boundaries  are  said   to  be  in
doubt, and the decision today may be

1914 for the chamber of deputies,
which will be held tomorrow, will have
an important place In the history or
tho third republic. The killing of
Gaston Calmette, editor of tho Figaro,

have centlderahle influence upon the j which  should  cause  public comment

of damages payable by the defendant
to the plaintiffs.
Mr. Harkness is still possessed of
his 30 feet, however. Evidence by A.
Q. Sarglson, who once owned the
property was to the effect that the old
fence about three feet west of the
new building was tbe true boundary
of the land. Surveyors' notes from
